tripelbgino make a live cd, have you dont hat yet?00:00
Ginowell i downloaded the version 9.10 with the intel architecture but i have an AMD cpu but i cant seem to find the download on the official site00:00
rodriguezjfzrc.local support md5 entries ?00:00
tripelbHey histo!00:00
tripelbgino it works on AMD. there is no special download.00:01
histoGino: do you ahve a 64bit cpu?00:01
histoGino: okay then you have the right cd00:01
tripelbgino, in fact you can take the same hard drive and more it from one (intel or amd) computer to another and IT KEEPS WORKING.00:01
Ginoi see00:01
=== nirvous is now known as nirvous^away
tripelbhisto; how about my issue. I want fonts. just one font actually.00:02
histotripelb: what font are you looking for?00:02
rodriguezjfzrc.local support md5 entries to hide psswor just like grub does ?00:02
Ginowell the thing is i followed some guide where it explains on to create a bootable USB stick but when i try to boot with it i get some blue screen with "Default" "help" and "EOM" and when i press enter on default it says, Booting in 10 secs and then it repeats it without doing anything00:02
histoGino: that does not sound like the normal ubuntu boot. Perhaps somethign went wrong when you were created the usb stick. The default installation cd for ubuntu is a live cd. You can boot that and hav ea workign system without touching your hardrive. You can also create a usb boot stick from the live cd.00:04
PacketCollisionCan anyone point me to how the Mouse Preferences panel decides whether your touchpad supports two-finger scrolling?00:04

ubottupicard1421, please see my private message00:07
PacketCollisionhisto, On my computer, the option is greyed out00:07
histoPacketCollision: ahh00:07
PacketCollisionhisto, and I want to find out where it decides that it should be greyed out00:07
PacketCollisionso that I can write a patch00:07
KettleCornwhats the terminal command to suspend/sleep in ubuntu server?00:07
PacketCollisionbecause it works perfectly on my computer if I manually enable it via xinput command00:07
KettleCornfrom 9.10 and onwards00:08
HelloKittenheg, checking it out.00:08
AltinWhat is the command to uninstall ./bin file?00:10
histoKettleCorn: sudo shutdown -H now maybe?00:10
eteachnick eteach00:10
KettleCornhisto: that just shuts down the computer? what are you implying?00:11
histoKettleCorn: you want sleep or hybernate?00:11
=== sundowner is now known as dougsko
KettleCornhisto: not sure which is which, but I want the harddrives to stop spinning at least, but I also want the mode that is the easiest to wake the computer from00:12
PacketCollisionKettleCorn: that would be suspend (to ram).  Hibernate saves all ram to disk and then turns the computer completely off00:13
histoKettleCorn: well power management should spin down the drivers etc.. if you have acpi enabled00:13
=== system is now known as Guest79419
PacketCollisionKettleCorn, try running /etc/acpi/sleep.sh00:14
histoKettleCorn: i'm still trying to figure out the best way to do it in console00:14
Guest79419hey, im really new to the whole computer thing and linux even more so. could some or a group of people explain irc and  how it works00:14
KettleCornPacketCollision:  ok I'll try that as well, I just did pm-suspend and it appeared to have been turned off00:14
tatselhisto: you want a "pause mode"(sleep) or a shutdown that will resume everything?(hibernate)00:14
histo!pm | Altin00:14
ubottuAltin: Please ask your questions in the channel so that other people can help you, benefit from your questions and answers, and ensure that you're not getting bad advice. Please note that some people find it rude to be sent a PM without being asked for permission to do so first.00:14
PacketCollisionKettleCorn, pm-suspend should work fine, that's what the acpi script calls anyway00:15
tatselhisto: sorry, tabfail+ typo00:16
* tatsel frowns00:16
KettleCornPacketCollision: do you know if it's possible to wake the computer externally somehow? can putty send some form of WOL-packet or something? never done anyhting like that, just curious if you happen to know00:16
histoKettleCorn: you may want to look at setterm for power down options00:16
histoKettleCorn: you could wake on lan or something00:16
histoKettleCorn: if your nic supports it.00:16
PacketCollisionKettleCorn, Yes, you should be able to use WakeOnLAN, although I've never really had much luck with it00:17
PacketCollisionKettleCorn, Make sure it's enabled in the BIOS00:17
tatselsame here00:17
Altinubottu:Thanks for ur information. I just want to know what is the command to uninstall .bin file00:17
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)00:17
izola86when I type /etc/init.d/vsftpd start nothing happens, any ideas?00:17
histoKettleCorn: actually setterm will only control the monitor00:17
histoizola86: what ar eyou trying to do?00:18
KettleCornPacketCollision: woohoo, I'm using Tomato on my Linksys router, and I could just click the IP-adress of the computer under the WOL section and it woke up!00:18
izola86histo: im trying to remove vsftpd and install it clean00:18
histoKettleCorn: pm-suspend00:18
izola86i sudo rm -r sftpd.conf and tried to reinstall but it wouldn't come back00:18
tatselKettleCorn: sweet00:18
histoKettleCorn: thats what you are looking for.00:18
PacketCollisionKettleCorn, Nice.  I'll have to try that the next time I accidentally let a computer suspend and I need to ssh in (I use Tomato too)00:19
izola86histo: with sudo aptitude install vsftpd00:19
histoKettleCorn: how do you like that tomato?00:19
KettleCornhisto: it's really nice! best router firmware I've ever used00:19
histoizola86: sudo apt-get purge vsftpd00:19
histoizola86: then sudo apt-get install vsftpd00:19
* tatsel trows a tomato at his netgear00:19
histoKettleCorn: i have to put it on mine have nothing but lockups withthe stock firmware althought its been behaving lately00:20
izola86histo: i love you00:20
PacketCollisionhisto, I agree, it's by far the best router firmware.  I actually use a variant that supports open-vpn, and it's great.00:20
KettleCornall that's left to do now is make sure I can wake on lan from outside my network00:20
tatselnah, it's a 2wire...00:20
tatselizola86: #love00:20
* tatsel giggles00:20
KettleCornPacketCollision: yeah that's the one I use too, has VPN Tunneling. not that I have any use for it, but I thought I did until I managed to connect to the office VPN in an eaiser way00:21
Altinhisto: Any idea what is the command to uninstall ./bin file00:22
PacketCollisionI use it so that I don't have to open ssh up to the world on my (ubuntu) servers.  VPN in, then ssh, but from home, I the tomato router takes care of the vpn00:22
jrcarr2hey I am on kubuntu... I hate it. how can I install gnome so I can switch to that?00:22
histoAltin: some bins have uninstall switches others you have to go and manually remove the files00:22
histoAltin: what is the bin?00:23
jrcarr2I tried apt-get install gnome and it complained :(00:23
PacketCollisionAltin: none of us know what the file is.  Since it's not an ubuntu package, there's no one answer00:23
histojrcarr2: what was the error?00:23
ubottuGNOME is the default !desktop environment on Ubuntu. To install it from Kubuntu or Xubuntu, type « sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop » in a !terminal.00:23
histojrcarr2: and yes you can install ubuntu-desktop or just gnome if you want.00:23
tatselfirst try \o/00:23
AltinThe file is j2sdk-1_4_2_19-linux-i586.bin00:23
jrcarr2  gnome: Depends: gnome-desktop-environment (= 1:2.22.2~4ubuntu8) but it is not going to be installed00:24
histojrcarr2: check your software sources00:24
PacketCollisionAltin: what happens if you type ./j2sdk-1_4_2_19-linux-i586.bin --help00:24
histojrcarr2: and sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gnome   or sudo apt-get ubuntu-desktop00:24
histoAltin: you may get lucky that it has a --uninstall switch00:25
shawnboyI'm having network connectivity issues with non-ubuntu linux distribution. Would anyone like to help, or suggest a more appropriate channel?00:25
histoshawnboy: what distro?00:25
shawnboy(distro is Linux Router Project running from floppy)00:25
jrcarr2oh, they call it Ubuntu Desktop00:25
jrcarr2I see00:25
PacketCollisionshawnboy, try ##linux00:25
histoshawnboy: i'm pretty sure they hare defunct00:26
shawnboyyes, it's old, but seems like I should still get connectivity, histo . Not even really using it as router. Trying this: http://members.shaw.ca/nicholas.fong/printsrv/00:27
histojrcarr2: thats the meta package just like kubuntu-desktop is the meta package for the default install of kubuntu. But you can just isntall gnome00:27
blendmaster1024how would i go about backing up the bootloader and not the partition table? i plan to install another OS and want to be able to just restore the bootloader afterwards00:27
shawnboyPacketCollision, I'll try. Thank you.00:27
histoshawnboy: you could just go with ubuntu-minimal and cups00:27
histoshawnboy: or lpr/lpd00:28
shawnboyhisto, thanks but would any of those run from one floppy? no hdd?00:28
histoshawnboy: uhm.. no. you'd have to boot someone and load in to ram00:29
histoshawnboy: with no hdd00:29
histoshawnboy: ubuntu is too big but there are other distro's i'm sure that may floppy load00:29
Fishscenedsl might fit00:29
histoshawnboy: http://www.linuxlinks.com/Distributions/Floppy/00:30
histoFishscene: dsl is like 50megs00:30
Fishscenenvm then :P00:30
shawnboyhisto, thanks for the tip. Maybe I can find a suitable replacement.00:30
histoshawnboy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mini_Linux00:30
histoshawnboy: I would find something thats a little more supported00:30
histoshawnboy: problem being the newer kernels are so big. thats why you 're goign to be stuck with an older kernel.00:31
shawnboyhisto, yes, more supported would be nice. I was hoping to get this working on my old slow pc though. I'll keep fiddling and look at the links you suggest.00:31
blendmaster1024how do i install grub2 from a livecd? if my grub is wiped out and i want it back i need to restore it somehow00:32
ExterminansHi, i've got a little problem with a dedicated server that crashed and is not booting any longer (Last message in /var/log/dmesg and messages is HDA Intel 0000:01:05.2: PCI INT B -> GSI 19 (level, low) -> IRQ 19)00:32
=== zomgwtf is now known as cr4k3r
histoshawnboy: yeah it can be done.00:32
histoshawnboy: would be much easier with an old hdd00:32
histo!grub | blendmaster102400:33
ubottublendmaster1024: grub is the default boot manager for Ubuntu releases before Karmic (9.10). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto - See !grub2 for Karmic onwards.00:33
histoExterminans: what happens now when you try to boot?00:33
shawnboyhisto, I may have to go that route. I probably have an old hdd. I just thought it'd be cool to have a print server running from floppy. :)00:33
tripelbhisto, I just want some avant-garde font. I looked to install fonts in ubuntu and it's a word salad of pages that dont do it and instructions that dont follow and end up no where.00:33
histoshawnboy: would be neat and can be accomplished00:33
izola86histo: my local_umask is set for 002 but i am get permissions of -rw-r--r-- , any ideas?00:34
shawnboyhisto, especially since the ONLY things it needs to do is print and be on network.00:34
histotripelb: open nautilus and browse to fonts:/00:34

blendmaster1024histo, that's great. i'm looking for a specific command to install grub from a chroot, so i can reinstall grub and use my old configuration file00:34
liminalanyone got ideas why00:35
histoliminal: does it have a physical switch?00:35
liminala physical switch?00:35
histoblendmaster1024: grub-install00:35
liminalas in is it turned on?00:35
_CommandeR_guys i need some assistance, I installed Lucid Lynx and it worked good then after i installed Windows 7 on another partition but on the same harddrive grub2 is no longer booting and only windows 7 starts is there  way to restore grub2?00:35
histoliminal: yes like on laptops00:35
liminalits not a laptop, its pci00:35
liminaland I can talk to the card00:35
Exterminanshisto: Tried 3 times so far, allways only the message with HDA Intel so i guess it causes a freeze00:35
histo!grub | _CommandeR_00:35
ubottu_CommandeR_: grub is the default boot manager for Ubuntu releases before Karmic (9.10). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto - See !grub2 for Karmic onwards.00:35
AltinPacketcollision: No help for bin. easiest way is to remove the folder where it is extracted00:35
histoliminal: then why do you think its off?00:36
blendmaster1024histo, yes, but will it work from a chroot? or do i need a chroot? how do i keep my old configuration partition and directory?00:36
izola86Anyone know how to set default file permissions for vsftpd uploads?00:36
izola86Changing local_umask doesn't seem to do anything00:36
liminali dont, but when try to connect to my wep network it wont00:36
liminaland its only picking up one weak signal00:36
liminalthere are many in the area00:36
histoblendmaster1024: the link from ubottu will explain how to retore it. the config is in /etc/default/grub00:37
histoliminal: what kind of card?00:37
histoizola86: I remember someone else having the exact same problem not to long ago. Trying to remember the fix.00:38
histoliminal: whats lspci say the card is?00:38
tripelb histo, of course there is nothing that says nautilus and nothing that says browse to. haha so I have to UNDERSTAND somehow that you mean go to places, go to control-f put in fonts. OK now how can I find out what is the pwd for those files? This is totally beyond me.00:38
izola86histo: thanks a lot, this is driving me insane.00:38
histotripelb: ctrl+l will open the browse to00:38

I dont finish the install no matter what CD i use. even if i use my external DVD drive. its not the CD drive or the CD itse00:40

izola86histo: I'm editing /etc/vsftpd.conf, don't know of another file00:44
rajhisto:  the GUI and alternative install.. could a bad drive do this? i mean i can partition and do eerything i want it would still show used space no matter how i partition it. then everything is fine untill i install00:44
histoizola86: just make sureyou restart vsftpd after making changes.00:44
histoizola86: sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart00:44
izola86histo: could there be something overiding the local_umask?00:44
historaj: thats wierd that its showing used space.00:45
histoizola86: there are two umask settings I believe for vsftpd.conf00:45
rajhisto:  could be a bad drive / sector00:45

tgp1994Hi everyone, for those of you who were here when I had my originial problem I could not get Ubuntu (more specifically, KuBunut) to detect an SDHC card in a card reader. The card reader automatically registers 5 devices with linux, however, I could not fdisk nor mount any of those 5 devices. They all show up as "SCSI" devices. This card is originally formatted in the Wii, and I do not mind nuking the card. If anyone can help, that00:46
tgp1994 would be great.00:46
histoizola86: those are the permissions with which uploaded files are created.00:46
histoizola86: umasks are applied on top of that.00:47

liminalwhere is the wiki?00:55
Picitripelb: Er, if you just want the fonts for your user, can't you just drop them in ~/.fonts ?00:55
histoizola86: remember umask values are differnt than normal values00:55
izola86histo: I am using 0000 so it shouldn't mask anything00:56
tripelbfor just a break, something to laff at http://ny-image3.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.120756167.jpg00:56
histoizola86: you want only the file owner to read?00:56

izola86histo: so I did file_open_mode=077700:56
man29need pactise english00:57
histoizola86: umask would be 000000:57
tripelbpici, this sounds so simple where is ~/.fonts I've never heard of it. And I am my own user. And I dont have a font yet?  SEarching I get only stuff like this http://www.google.com/search?q=fonts+for+ubuntu+avant+guarde&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=com.ubuntu:en-US:official&client=firefox-a Which is of no use at all.00:57
izola86histo: yes it is local_umask=000000:57
histoizola86: yeah that was the problem is umask values are different00:58
izola86histo: yes, but the file default permissions haven't changed00:58
Picitripelb: ~/.fonts/ is a path in your home directory, if it doesn't exist, create it.00:59

izola86histo: It seems like a umask of 022 is affecting my files01:04
tripelbpici, good. then I am not stuck in another openformat alley. Then I need to find a free font. Then how to install it. Thank you.01:04
histotripelb: right on the first tab of software sources you have the option of selected Community-maintained open source software (universe) and Software restrcited by copyright or legal issues (multiverse)01:05
gmonroeWin XP Pro was able to access the CD also from VBox...but no longer01:05
histoizola86: that would be default root umask01:05

linuxI have, and I've come to some upsetting conclusions: 1. It worked in Ubuntu 8.04, Hardy, with an older XOrg driver (and something else called the INtel Experimental Modesetting driver)01:32
linuxworked perfectly.01:32
linuxSince 9.04 and up, it doesn't.01:32
tgp1994Curly_Q: I spose I could... the graphics card on this pc isn't so good, though.01:32
tripelbjimbobco, how else could one get flash? clicking the install link on the web doesn;t do it. That one ends up saying "install manually"01:32
linuxAnd yes, I'll post my Xorg log01:32
tgp1994Curly_Q: And then I have to go through setting up the capture card drivers... I'll just do the viewing on he windows peeshee.01:32

soreaugoodfella121: You're linux?01:52
Curly_QTgp1994 one little bit of good advice, there is a software, expensive, but very valuable if you are interested. It is called: Acronis. That will help you solve many issues with installation problems as well as data recovery and if any mistake is made you can always revert back to a previous situation.

elkyjrcarr2, non-support chatter really belongs in #ubuntu-offtopic (but you should watch your language there too)02:08
alpicolam477: Interesting.  Looks like your image file is bad / corrupted.  file should have said something more like "ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem data"02:09
soreaugoodfella121: Oh yes, nexuiz, enemy-territory, openarena, warsow, tremulous and all run nicely on my radeon rv350 (9600) with the open radeon driver02:09
m477alpicola: this file work on windows so isnt corrupted02:09
perscitusHow do you use USb Startup Creator? it wont format usb disk02:10
goodfella121soreau: excellent. Thank you for this, I figured it was because the card is blacklisted. I had read about it and checked the site, I just need conformation.02:10
soreaugoodfella121: Yes, the integrated intel chip you have isn't that great to be frank02:10

shazbotmcnastyI installed a new KVM switch, and now I can only get resolutions 640x800 and 320x240 - I tried reisntalling my video driver with no luck... it says the driver is working, just....not quite right. The Video card is a nVidia GeFroce 7100, and the KVM switch is a "Zonet KVM3002"02:11
goodfella121soreau: Yeah, I remember trying to play low-end specs for Half Life 2 on windows, and it lagged horribly02:11
goodfella121soreau: so I already knew it was bad card02:11

chillindaveHow do I add the current date/time to a filename if I'm doing something like cd /var/www/; tar -cvpzf /home/user/backup{datetimehere}.tar.gz mywebsite.com/02:12
shazbotmcnastyhow would I manually add some resolution modes to xorg.conf  ?02:12
alpicolam477: Not sure, then.  I suppose you could always specify the filesystem when you try to mount the thing and maybe that'll work.  (mount -t iso9660)02:12
igoryonyahello, is alsa the only one, supporting 5.1 or more channel output? Pules, OSS, etc only support 2?02:12
m477alpicola: i tried sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 Diablo2LOD.iso /media/cdrom0/02:13
m477alpicola: but doesnt work02:13
alpicolam477: Definitely not sure, then.  What are you using in Windows to load the image?02:14
m477alpicola: daemon02:14
jrcarr2hey, what file do I need to edit if I want to add env variables and aliases? I thought this was ~/.profile, but even retsrarting has no effect and nothing I add there gets used!02:14
m477alpicola: but it isnt first time when i can mount02:14
igoryonyabecause, in SMPlayer, when I chose audio output driver, and the movie has 5.1 channel audio, everything plays 2 channels except for alsa. in VLC, even alsa plays 2 chnnels. what's wrong, does Linux really have a such poor support of audio?02:14
ScuniziHow do I get a gui app that needs root privileges to ask for a password and granting it root privileges.  The package is samba-server-configuration.02:15
m477alpicola: i recently got note that i have to specify file type02:15
igoryonyascunizi, you run it from the console: sudo and your gui app file name02:15
mdlueckDoes either Aptitude or Synaptic log events as it downloads from the repos? I see one fail after waiting a LONG time, but then the text goes away right away and I can not see which one is erroring.02:16
igoryonyascunizi: sudo samba-server-configuration (from the console, or you can create a launcher with that command)02:16
m477alpicola: maybe can you recomend some other program which can do that02:16
Scuniziigoryonya: been there done that.. and it loaded fine.. I'd just like to start it from the menu if possible.02:17
igoryonyascunizi: so, create a launcher shortcut with sudo prepending and add it to the menu.02:18
Scuniziigoryonya: good idea.. hadn't thought of that.02:18
ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)02:19
ScuniziPici: kdesu in this case.. I made the switch from gnome..02:19
alpicolam477: Don't really know any, I'm afraid.  Loop mount has always worked for me.02:19
igoryonyahello, is alsa the only one, supporting 5.1 or more channel output? Pules, OSS, etc only support 2? because, in SMPlayer, when I chose audio output driver, and the movie has 5.1 channel audio, everything plays 2 channels except for alsa. in VLC, even alsa plays 2 chnnels. what's wrong, does Linux really have a such poor support of audio?02:19

m477fu me02:29
i12The wobble works but it disables full screen applications/windows, the 'chrome' bar stays but the ui of the window is black02:29
obiwan_When bash is invoked as an interactive login shell, or as a  non-inter‐ active  shell with the --login option, it first reads and executes com‐ mands from the file /etc/profile, if that file exists.   After  reading that file, it looks for ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login, and ~/.profile, in that order, and reads and executes commands from the first one  that exists  and  is  readable.02:30
jrcarr2I thought the purpose of .profile was to have a profile read by multiple shells02:30
tomeois there a version of ubuntu that will run well on old hardware (p3 866mhz)02:30
obiwan_so you'll need to make a .bash_profile02:30
obiwan_jrcarr2: that's /etc/profile02:30
jrcarr2cp ~/.profile ~/.bash_profile02:30
kpourjxjrcarr2: read the man page of bash..see invocation section :)02:31

zenlunaticwow grub2 is ridiculous02:42
digitalfizthats not grub thats chameleon02:42
Dr_WillisGrub2 has some very nifty features.. and a lot more to come i imagine02:42
shazbotmcnastyDr_Willis, do you think manually adding resolution to xorg.conf would fix my problem anyway?02:42
Out_Coldthe greatest work excuse ever.. "I'm can't do any work until it's done compiling XD02:42
digitalfizunless grub2 took some pointers from chameleon02:42
Dr_Willisshazbotmcnasty:  thats how others have handled it in the past. but Ive never used a KVM switch. so no personal experioence with it02:43
_CommandeR_im trying to make it but when editing its settings and giving GFXMODE to 1200x800 seems not to change it02:43
Strife89Out_Cold: There's an xkcd comic about that. :)02:43
zenlunaticwhatever... that much gui in a bootloader is a waste02:43
shazbotmcnastyDr_Willis, the other side of the kvm is plugged into an xbox360, and it finds the resolution fine on that02:43
dhaneshwhich  digitalfiz02:43
shazbotmcnastyDr_Willis, oh...well okay02:43
Dr_Willis_CommandeR_:  you are rerunning tghe 'sudo update-grub' command after changeing any grub2 configf files?02:43
shazbotmcnastythanks anywhoo LD02:43

KB1JWQod3n_: Likely a plugin.02:44

Dr_Willisod3n_:  or some other plugins.02:44

jordanThanks all for the help :]02:45
_CommandeR_Dr_Willis, how do i check what resolutions my computer got during grub?02:45
Dr_Willisod3n_:  in the firefox menus,  or use the command line options  - It would be very weird that FF would crash on startup loading ablank page.02:45
obiwan_guys, is there any file tag standard in common filesystems? (fat32, ntfs, ext*,...)? i want to tag all my files02:46

igoryonyamaybe obiwan_ is talking about mp3 tag?02:48
i12igoryonya, what should I do to see what kind of video card I have, that will help on the search02:48
^b0ss^surely you can do it from the gui?02:48
dhanesh Dr_Willis: i have installed 7zip but it is not in application menu.02:48
darolui12: open a terminal and type "lspci |grep VGA" (no quotes)02:48
Dr_Willis^b0ss^:  i find it much SAFER to use the CLI. ive seen peopel running nautilus as root have at times really messed up their systems.02:49
igoryonyai12, I read your question 3 times and didn't understand what you've ment about advanced settings.02:49
_^mouse^_^b0ss^, idk, probably so, but easier to use terminal for it i think02:49

Dr_Willisand each USER has their own .xchat/WHATEVER directory02:51
darolu^b0ss^: ~/.xchat2/ create a plugins folder first02:51
Dr_Willisdhanesh:  use ark or file-roller or the cli tools.  or the 'unp' command02:51
^b0ss^there was already one02:51
Dr_Willis!info unp | dhanesh02:51
ubottudhanesh: unp (source: unp): unpack (almost) everything with one command. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.0.15 (karmic), package size 10 kB, installed size 76 kB02:51
daroluobiwan_: what do you try to do exactly? what do you want to acomplish by "labeling your files"?02:51
igoryonyai12: well, normally, in your system -> administration -> hardware drivers, you can see what graphics card is installed, but there should be a command line, but I don't know what it is, although, when you start compiz or /etc/init.d/gdm, or X11, it tells you during start what it is.02:51
brah-quiet today02:52
daroludhanesh: if you have installed the 7zip package you should be able to right click your compressed file and extract it from any nautilus window02:52
daroluigoryonya: lspci |grep VGA should print video card model02:53
Dr_Willisp7zip -d FILENAME02:53
crucialhoaxdarolu: It does.02:53
igoryonyaobiwan_, what, do you mean by *label* your files, it can mean many things, what do you mean by that.02:53
obiwan_darolu: i find it extremely difficult to organise my files: if i got a software program for chemistry where do i put it? in chemistry dir? in software dir? what if i want to grab all my software and i've got that prgram in the chemistry dir? i'll have to search all the dirs in my disk for software. it'd be better to have all software in a dir. but then what if i need everything about chemistry? it'd be good to have that software in my chemi02:53
obiwan_igoryonya: what i just said please read my last comment02:54
igoryonyadarolu, thanx, I've forgot about lspci02:54
crucialhoaxobiwan_: Most software installed will go under the applications menu.02:54
alpicolaobiwan_: In short, you want a tag cloud like they have on blogs and such, but for your files?  Or your applications?02:55
NedraeI *think* you can tag them in the tracker search tool, but trackerd keeps bugging out on me and corrupting indices all over the place02:55

obiwan_crucialhoax: yeah i know, i mean software installers02:55
flybackwhy is it that ubuntu and knoppix have been consistanly a pain in the ass over 10 yrs when it comes to livecd's02:55
daroluobiwan_: it's quite easy to install probrasm at /opt/ and your files at your own /home; you can use different directories or file sufix to help keeping them organized; I do not know of any "label" system like the one you are describing; out of a database that is.02:55
flybackrandom suddentely can't read half the disc etc02:55
daroluflyback: that's a weird statement since Ubuntu hasn't been around for 10 years02:56
obiwan_but darolu i don't mean installed programs, i mean installers. i want to keep my programs organised in my external usb disk02:56
obiwan_what i want is exactly what alpicola said, a blog cloud tag for my files02:56
pranay_09hi , i want to install git in my system , but can't find the name of package , which one should i install?02:57
obiwan_i thought about that some hours ago, but couldn't find something related to blog tags for filesystems02:57
flybackhowever long I seen livecd's out for02:57
alpicolaobiwan_: I think dolphin has a feature like that in kubuntu.  Don't know if gnome/ubuntu has anything similar.  The dolphin functionality also doesn't work outside the GUI, so if you want to get your files from the terminal, you're on your own.02:57
crucialhoaxflyback: I have never had that problem...02:57
obiwan_alpicola: problem is that if dolphin is just for ext files or for linux it won't help02:57

igoryonyaobiwan_, I know, there are several programs, meeting your need. I need something like that too, but, I don't remember what they are called, I can just say, that I've seen a couple in synaptic (don't remember what category and the name) and on freshmeat.02:59
flybackgoing to free up a flash drive here02:59
flybackand work that way02:59
brezpranay_09: apt-get install git02:59

brezdhanesh: try in a terminal "unrar x filename.rar"03:00

igoryonyaIs alsa the only one, supporting 5.1 or more channel output? Pules, OSS, etc only support 2? because, in SMPlayer, when I chose audio output driver, and the movie has 5.1 channel audio, everything plays 2 channels except for alsa. in VLC, even alsa plays 2 chnnels. what's wrong, does Linux really have a such poor support of audio?03:01
alpicolaobiwan_: Yeah, I know.  It doesn't exist.03:01

ArsinDoes anyone know what I'm talking about : An application that show numerous graphs of network history, RAM usage, cpu usage, etc. all in one and most people have it on the right hand side of their screen03:03
Fudgeis there a program that will make my cpu run at 24400MHz instead of 1600 please?03:03

_^mouse^_^b0ss^, try --- mv angryfact.pl ~/.xchat2/ plugins03:05
crucialhoaxgreezmunkey: Yeah, that is possible.03:05
igoryonyaobiwan_: you could keep all the files in one directory and use a subdirectory structure of categories with symlinks.03:05
greezmunkeycrucialhoax: It's not a big deal, I was more curious than anything else.03:05

obiwan_igoryonya: yeah that's exactly what i thought, but first issue is there's a maximum number of files per dir, so i'd have to make a pool with several dirs and then if i mvoe a file to another dir, i'd have to check all links to it. and plus the other is if i want to copy 100 files , i can't keep worrying about if what i'm copying is the symlink or the real one. You can specify to copy symlinks or derefer them, but when they're mixed like in 03:09

igoryonyaobiwan_, I don't remeber, what it's called, but I've seen some plugin somewhere :( for nautilus, that allows to sort files by categories, you might want to search for nautilus plugins, I also saw (also don't remeber the name) a console based service that you can use to create a description for any file, which, when you search for files, the description is also searched.03:09

i12you guys rock, thanks for all your help03:11
igoryonyaobiwan_: maybe create a directory with alphabetical folders: a, b, c and place files in each folder accordingly, and reference to them.03:11
obiwan_igoryonya: also somebody talked me aobut beagle and semantic desktops and stuff which classify things and let you search and stuff but that's not either cross filesystem standard03:11

ubuntunewbHey, all. I've got an Intel 2200BG chipset for my wireless connection, and apparently Karmic Koala doesn't have driver support for it out of the box. So I got some drivers, firmware, subsystem files, etc. Now I supposedly need to configure my kernel files to support the drivers et al. I get completely stuck when I get to this. How am I supposed to go about doing it?03:13
brezalpicola: champion! thanks!03:13
igoryonyaobiwan_: as far as I remember, the description thing was storing description in some centralized file or a db, which it is referring to on access to description or file search.03:13

obiwan_igoryonya: well, i don't exactly want to add alternate names, i want to add tags hheh. anyway i've more or less give up, i'll do some simple dir classification and maybe a couple years later they launch some standard which does it. i think it'd be great03:19

AchooQuestion: I made a USB startup disk. I want to also put an antivirus program on there, like Avira, so that I can boot off the USB startup disk and run the antivirus on a hosed Windows machine. But where do I put files on the USB drive so I'll be able to see them once I've booted from it?04:30

jason201is anyone else having trouble with flash and gstreamer?05:13
ZykoticK9!anyone | jason20105:13
ubottujason201: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?05:13
jason201seems to be a recent issue for me05:13
jason201say what?05:14
ZykoticK9jason201, you need to provide some details05:14
sinistradawesome_guest, I'm not sure what to tell you.  Maybe one of the gurus in here knows how to track/trace what xorg is doing.  Your experience is very unusual. I've got a ton of stuff running and I bet I'm at less than 5% CPU total05:14
igoryonyagenii, that seems to show currently active files, but what I need is to see the procentage of file system access load by which processes, to know which process is overloading the hdd with access reads writes requests, just like you see a percientage of CPU per process.05:14
jason201youtube give me an error and totem tells me there is a general supporting library problem for gstreamer05:15
awesome_guestsinistrad: I mean, I am running dual monitors with a mobile graphics thing, the intel 950 gma express05:15

awesome_guestI had to disable something called 'DRI' which apparently gives better performance05:15
sinistradawesome_guest, DRI is basically your Direct Rendering05:16

awesome_guestwyclif_: are there any specific utilities for writes to the hard drive?05:16
YounderOne of my major grudges against utube is the lack of support for standard video formats like mpg05:16

YounderYou can of course download them05:16
jason201I've never had a problem with youtube until tonight, I don't understand what has changed05:17
sinistradawesome_guest, meaning, that your video card is not handling the 3D as it should. Or at least that is my take on it. I know my 3D gaming is a no-go if I don't have DRI enabled05:17
Younderlinux being linux05:17
jason201I thought maybe it had sometihng to do with a recent update05:17

YounderOne of my major grudges against ubuntu is the lack of support for standard video formats like mpg05:17
jason201which is why I wondered if anyone else was having the same problem05:17
Younderdumb and dumber.. argh05:18
h00kYounder: do you have a question?05:18
sinistradawesome_guest, still, you are not running compiz, so you shouldn't need 3D. Your desktop should be in 2D mode, which a year 1998 graphics card should handle, but the dual-monitor thing might throw a kink in it05:18
igoryonyahow do I find out which process/app is utilizing the disk most intensively (disk activity per process/app) or something like that.05:19
sinistradawesome_guest, let me rephrase. You aren't using compiz' 3D portions.05:19
Younderigoryonya, top05:19
awesome_guestsinistrad: the google says that graphics performance gets WORSE for intel gma in 9.0405:19

igoryonyaZelozelos, Younder, wyclif_, I am using system monitor all the time and the only thing that it shows related to disk is virtual memory.05:21

igoryonyaZelozelos, Younder, wyclif_, it's, pretty much the gui top05:22

wyclif_awesome_guest: no I mean in Linux05:30
igoryonyawyclif_: oh, well, I will keep looking, thanx anyway05:30
awesome_guestwyclif: fair enough.  However, ssds can be really fast if ubuntu is optimized for them.  do you know of a central repository of tips?05:30
igoryonyaawesome_guest, what's TRIM?05:30
awesome_guestigoryonya: if you have a solid state drive (usually faster than disk drives), you can extend the lifespan of the drive by using the "TRIM" command, roughly speaking05:31
Zelozelosxatcon did you try all the obvious trouble shooting fixes like turn off, turn on, reboot, disconnect, reconnect, check all connections etc?05:31

xatconi just want my driver for Hp deskjet D1600 for ubuntu only05:33
xatconby usb05:33
igoryonyaawesome_guest: does SSD has a shorter lifespan, then HDD? I thought that it was the other way, since SSD doesn't use any mechanics...05:33
Younderawesome_guest, I'd wait a while..05:33
Mrpeepers310Question: whenever i restart firefox or it tries to open a new window I loose all the icons i put on the window myself, is this a bug that has a work around?05:33
wyclif_awesome_guest: I've seen Ubuntu run on an SSD, and it's pretty snappy. I've no idea about lifespan besides knowing it's less. But the upside is that if you carry a laptop around a lot it's MUCH sturdier with an SSD05:33
Zelozelosxatcon u shouldnt need 2 install any drivers, it should work asoon as u connect it, (as far as i know anyway)05:33

Mrpeepers310ok sounds good05:39
GiacomoCarissimidoes anyone know of a way i can recover my internal drive after this crash?05:39
igoryonyaso, with SSD disk, you have to be doing live backups constantly, nonstop.05:39
h00kigoryonya: ...no05:39
Mrpeepers310kbrosnan: thank you05:40
igoryonyagiacomocarissimi, is the drive visible by the system or it's inaccessable?05:40
awesome_guestigoryonya: not really, ssds tend not to fail suddenly as disk drives do, which is a plus with a laptop05:40
GiacomoCarissimii can't see it's contents05:40
Younderawesome_guest, be warened! being the first you carrey the brunt on price and will get bugs05:41
GiacomoCarissimiit shows my external but not my internal partitions05:41
awesome_guestigoryonya: you get a warning when your ssd will get old (about 6 months before anything bad even happens)05:41
wyclif_awesome_guest: I would think it would be something that breaks down the contents of /proc/stat for you05:41
igoryonyagiacomocarissimi, I can only suggest some windows utilities, I don't know of any such linux utilities, do you want?05:41
GiacomoCarissimiigoryonya: i'll try anything :)05:42
Younderawesome_guest, that said. You are probaly making the best choice05:42
GiacomoCarissimiat first i thought it might be something with grub, but i kinda doubt that if i can't see anything on the disk from the live cd05:42
Younderawesome_guest, In the long run05:42
=== freevryheid is now known as fvs
igoryonyaawesome_guest, oh, that's good, because, I thought opposite, that it fails suddenly, because I've had, in my experience 2 flash sticks fail on me suddenly, which, as far as I understand use the same memory type as SSDs.05:43
awesome_guestigoryonya: yeah, intel's betting part of its future on these things05:44
awesome_guestwyclif_: thanks05:45
igoryonyaGiacomoCarissimi: There is a really good tool, called SpinRite 6, but it's not a file recovery tool, but an inaccessable disk repair tool, I repaired many disks with it, but as far as file recovery goes, I just thought, what file system do you need to recover from?05:46
crucialhoaxawesome_guest: Isnt OCZ pretty popular?05:46
GiacomoCarissimiigoryonya: just ntfs and ext305:46
igoryonyaawesome_guest: by these things, do you mean memory chips?05:46
shazbotmcnastyHow can I make my audio input, come out my audio output???05:46

voss74910.10 Mating Meerkats :)05:47
awesome_guestigoryonya: mlc and slc NAND flash, to be specific05:48
igoryonyaGiacomoCarissimi: the windows tools I will suggest, will probably only recover fat and ntfs systems, although, some of them might work with ext3, I don't know though, just a sec., but I've recovered many disks with these tools that had ntfs and fat systems, I just didn't have any disk with ext3 to recover yet.05:48
shazbotmcnastycrucialhoax, that's not what I mean05:48
ubottuSome tools to recover lost data are listed and explained at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery - Recovering deleted files on !ext3 filesystems can be virtually impossible, although methods that might work is some cases are described at at http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html and http://projects.izzysoft.de/trac/ext3undel05:48

abhilashHi guys, I'm new to linux. Could anyone tell me how I can set up my ubuntu box so that I don't have to authorize it every time I install a .deb?05:52
igoryonyaeasyrecovery is good (it's easy), but nut as good as the ones I've gave earlier.05:52
Random832difference is that headphone out is amplified05:52
h00kabhilash: that's how it works.05:53

abhilashI can't change that?05:53
Younderabhilash, no05:53
Youndernor should you05:53
abhilashI had a feeling lol05:53
igoryonyaGiacomoCarissimi: these utilities will recover from deleted, lost partitions or individual files.05:53
GiacomoCarissimiigoryonya: im trying testdisk and some other linux options initially05:53
abhilashHmm how about signing into empathy automatically on startup?05:53
igoryonyaGiacomoCarissimi: recover4all is a good utility, but it only works on existing partition, It cannot recover from lost partitions.05:54
h00kabhilash: you can add it to your 'startup applications' in System -> Administration05:54
abhilashoh thanks05:55
GiacomoCarissimihmm, maybe the partition table is just messed up05:55
h00kcrucialhoax: try to ask it all on one line, it would be easier for someone to follow05:55
abhilashi found it under preferences05:55

abhilashoh lol that's simple05:56
abhilashcomment can be empty?05:56
h00kabhilash: yes05:56
igoryonyaGiacomoCarissimi: there is also good one Restorer2000 (r2k), but I don't remember if it can recover from lost partitions or only from existing; to come back to easyrecovery, it's good and it can also recover from lost/deleted partitions or existing, but as far as I remember It couldn't recover files that were NTFS compressed or NTFS encrypted, other tools I'05:57

skydromeRandom832, paste from outside vm into it (debian bare)06:02
Random832i don't think there's a way to do that06:02

skydromeok will look into that06:02
awesome_guesthow do I disable journaling in ext3?06:02
igoryonyaGiacomoCarissimi: there is Acronis Recovery Expert, I know that acronis is really good disk utility company. their HDD imaging software is better then norton ghost, and Disk Director Suite is better and more stable, then Partition Magic, but I didn't test their recovery expert, so I cannot say, how good it is yet, but I am thinking, that if their other disk utilities are superior, why this...06:03
igoryonya...utility would not be.06:03
GiacomoCarissimiigoryonya: well what im thinking is the partition table just got screwed, so if there's an easy way of fixing that up and having everything working, i could just get it to re-write the partition table structure06:04
GiacomoCarissimivia testdisk atm06:04
greezmunkey_heh, haven't fired up this virt mach in a while06:04
igoryonyaGiacomoCarissimi: I didn't use testdisk, so I don't know, but if it was me, I wouldn't risk it until I imaged this disk with some disk imaging utility to an other disk first. I don't know how safe it is to suggest anything.06:04
greezmunkey_still works06:05
igoryonyais testdisk a linux tool?06:05
GiacomoCarissimiigoryonya: yeah06:05
GiacomoCarissimiigoryonya: this seems like a good idea, the worst that could happen is i'll have to spend the next 3-4 hours getting everything set back up.  i have most of my important data saved on my external anyway06:06
igoryonyaGiacomoCarissimi: maybe, you can do it, but as I said, since I'ven't tested this util before, I am afraid to suggest anything about it.06:06
GiacomoCarissimiigoryonya: no worries06:06
GiacomoCarissimii wrote the partition table, now just have to reboot to see if it worked.  i'll  be back to let ya know.06:07

basslinerhello. the icons in the gnome panel still look extremely squashed and have a 0px padding, both vertically and horizontally. fedora includes a patch to add padding which apparently didn't go upstream yet which dramatically cleans up the gnome panel and makes it much more aesthetically pleasing and a lot of bug reports exist for this in ubuntu since ages. anything more one could do on this?10:17

sabbazhang, can you please tell me on cli how to turn on the wireless device?10:53
goofriderbazhang, libffi4 in hardy-updates and hard-secuirty are @ 4/2/4-1ubuntu*  , it requires gcc-4.2-base (4.2.3-2ubuntu7), which is what hardy main repo is shipping10:54
bazhangsab, if you have the wireless drivers activated and in use, it should be detected, yet your ifconfig shows only ppp0 and no wlan0;10:54
sabbazhang, when i click on network manager under the "Wireless networks " its written "wireless is disabled"10:55

abssorbHi I have a problem with libdbusmenu-qt2 dependency problems.  Doesn;t show in synaptic.  Tried advice here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=18667211:29
csabahey can anyone help me install ldap? I've set up everything according to instructions I've found, but when I want to add an entry I get the error that it can't contact the LDAP server... and I did start it with /sbin/service ldap start11:29
balachmarAny ideas on why the usb startup disk creator keeps failing to create a bootable usb disk. It gives the following warning: checksums do not match11:29
abssorbGrateful for advice. No matter what I do, package will not remove. "unable to execute installed post-removal script". Even   sudo aptitude remove -f libdbusmenu-qt2 gives this error.11:30
balachmarI have reformatted the drive multiple times and also tested it on multiple machines. (the same drive)11:30
nibblerabssorb, reinstall it first, then remove it. find out which is the post removal script and see why its not working (strace -eopen)11:30

eZainnySo I own an Ubuntu server (7.10 - "gutsy") which was previously used for my small business. All setup and maintenance of this server was done by an admin who has since moved on. As part of the setup, this admin has somehow setup the server such that whenever I plug in an external HDD (USB) it automatically runs a backup script which copies over a whole bunch of stuff to this drive.12:49
eZainnyI want to cancel/delete this script as this is no longer necessary. Can anyone give me any pointers as to how I could track down where this script is and how to remove it?12:49
kaddihi, are there any plans on making a driver for ext4 on windows?12:49

frxstremI am currently reinstalling Ubuntu a lot on my computer, and I was just wondering if it would be a good idea to have /home as a separate partition from the root file system - also, would Ubuntu then re-use these directories as home directories for the new users (with the same name, of course), or would it make a new directory no matter what?14:07

Slartfrxstrem: you can tell it to reuse the same /home partition for a new install.. there's an option during the install14:08
Slartfrxstrem: I think it's at the same stage where you decide how to partition the hard drive14:09
geirhafrxstrem: Having a separate home partition is always good. When you create a user and a dir by the same name exists in /home, it will use that as the new user's homedir.14:09

exarkunWhen I plug in a flash drive, it doesn't get automounted.  How do I change that?14:17
airtonixexarkun, start by giving more information about your system and software14:18
exarkunUbuntu 9.1014:18
erUSULairtonix: for a desktop PC separatting /var and /usr has no advantages imho14:18
Dr_Willisexarkun:  thers been soem bugs/issues with the automounting of devices - ive had smiler issues. I tend to just mount them by hand when they dont auto  mount.14:18
exarkunDr_Willis: Yes... I've been mounting by hand for 6 months now, every time I plug in the device.14:19
airtonixerUSUL, right now i have it as / = 10gb /home = the-rest. however... after isntalling much doc packages... /usr/share/blah is reaching 8gb in size.14:19
LzrdKingerUSUL: lots more stuff goes into /usr than any other dir, so it could make sense to mount a larger volume on /usr14:19
GavilasoSlart i'm running everything default...14:19
Dr_Willisexarkun:  ive noticed that mine would auto mount for a while.. then stop. somthing with gvfs was crashing.14:19
LzrdKingerUSUL: plus, /var needs to be mounted rw while other directories can be mounted ro14:19
exarkungvfs is the software that's responsible for this?14:19
SlartGavilaso: and it worked before you created the new user?14:19
csabawhen I start LDAP, I get an error message saying "No DB_CONFIG file found in /var/lib/ldap"... and there are some dbd files there...14:19
csabawhy do I get this error?14:19
GavilasoSlart it was working fine until i create the new user14:20
airtonixLzrdKing, ja, /var is also somewhere you would have the mysql and apache root14:20
Dr_Willisexarkun:  part of it at least. Monitor the /var/log/messages file and /var/log/dmesg (i think) or kernel. files.. it may give a clue. but i know of no actual fix.14:20
erUSULLzrdKing: i know that but that makes sense in a server or multiuser system. a desktop pc used by 1 person or a family do not need the extra security of ro /usr/ and all that stuff; as i said IMHO14:20
SlartGavilaso: you could look through /var/log/syslog and see if you notice anything around the time you tried logging in.. it's a regular text file14:20
GavilasoSlart after i create the new user and reboot or log off so i can loging as the new user.. the log in screen.. or the square where you see the user is in black you can only see the background or wallpaper14:20
GavilasoSlart i'm new to linux how do i get there?14:21
exarkunDr_Willis: Okay, thanks for the hint.  I haven't investigated the gvfs part of this before, so that gives me something new to look into, at least.14:21
LzrdKingerUSUL: but as airtonix said, he's nearly out of room on / because of 8 GB in /usr14:21
airtonixerUSUL, but i think i have a solution, which involves changing the mount point for /usr to a new partition to accomodate its growing size (i'm going to want more doc packages)14:21
SlartGavilaso: open a terminal, write "gedit /var/log/syslog" .. it will probably be easier to start looking from the end since it might be a big file14:21
GavilasoSlart i can't login...14:22
quesoIf I have applications linked to in the gnome panel, where are they stored?  I'd like to be able to find the command to start an application on a remote computer.14:22
SlartGavilaso: oh.. right.. didn't think of that14:22
LzrdKingairtonix: if you have another drive, mount it on /mnt, do cp -a /usr /mnt, then unmount /mnt and mount the drive on /usr; once you verify that everything works, you can unmount /usr, then rm -rf /usr/*14:22
exarkunqueso: right click on the icon and select "Properties"14:22
LzrdKingthen remount the drive on /usr14:22
SlartGavilaso: do you have a live cd you can boot from? (the regular desktop install cd is a live cd)14:23
exarkunqueso: The command should be there.14:23
GavilasoSlart it just sits their.. the only ico i see is the accesibility.. or the man with the hand on side14:23
Gavilasoslart yest14:23
quesoexarkun: I've ssh'ed to the remote computer, I'm not actually in gnome on it.14:23
LzrdKingairtonix: make sure you add the drive to /etc/fstab so /usr is mounted on boot14:23
erUSULLzrdKing: i'm not talking about a specific case it was more of a genral opinion (see my response to frxstrem ). in the airtonix case i sayy that if you are going to install a lot of packages then 15 or 20 GiB (i have 15 GiB myself) for root and you are done :)14:23
airtonixLzrdKing, thats pretty much the method im going to use14:23

dj_segfaulttux_: mp4 files are already compressed14:25
Dr_Willistux_:  try one of the many archiver tools out.. but good luck getting much more compression14:25
airtonixLzrdKing, lots of python docs ( mostly all of them ), i have lots of python packages too14:25
exarkunqueso: You can start a display remotely. :)14:25
tux_dj_segfault, yup but is there anything else to edge it that little bit more14:25
LzrdKingtux, you can try gzip -9, but you won't be able to compress a compressed file very much; in fact, it might grow14:25
jlebrechaironix: package x is getting really popular, and it has a description and reviews. and you can just click install. like an rss feed style app14:25
quesoexarkun: I can run the apps remotely via ssh14:26
LzrdKingtux_ ^14:26
tux_LzrdKing, worth a try14:26
exarkunqueso: I don't know which files the information is stored in, sorry.  Probably something in ~/.gnome2 I suppose.14:26
DiKKyHEARTIEZ <3<3<3  GOOD NIGHT  Pi LOL <314:26
dj_segfaulttux_: I would recommend looking into something that can break it up into multiple files14:26
DiKKyI STOP14:26
airtonixjlebrech, you mean like the apt:// url handler that firefox has ?14:26
DiKKySO WILL I!!!!!!!!!!14:26
quesoexarkun: k, thank you.  I think I may have found a way to figure it out14:26
FloodBot3DiKKy: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.14:26
LzrdKingtux_: you could also try editing the content to make it a bit shorter14:26
tux_LzrdKing, added 1mb :)14:26
LzrdKingtux_: or reencode it at a lower bitrate14:27
tux_its a video mp4, hard to compress, it went from a 92 avi to 25.5 mp414:27
FloodBot3DiKKy: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.14:27
tux_winFF doesn't have an mp4 option unfortunately14:28
LzrdKingtux_: if you converted it yourself, reconvert it but use slightly higher compression settings to the codec you used14:28
BurzmaliHello, anyone have advice for keeping one workspace at a default resolution while letting an application (Wine) resize another?14:28
jlebrech airtonix: like a desktop app, like message of the day. so it'll show you ad package you havent got install and explain what it does. especially if it has reviews.14:28
Dr_WillisBurzmali:  you mean a work space, and not a seperate monitor right?14:28
tux_LzrdKing, don't have the original anymore, i used prism video converted on winblows14:28
BurzmaliDr_Willis: Yes14:29
airtonixjlebrech, no there is not.14:29
Dr_WillisBurzmali:  workspaces/virtual desktops - ive never seen  be able to do differnt res's14:29
jlebrech airtonix: what do you think? good idea?14:29
wolfjbI'm running Ubuntu 9.10 64bit, how do I install libpcsclite1 32 bit library? I don't see an option for it in apt-get14:29
dj_segfaultBurzmali: I have two different displays at different resolution.  I do it using separate X displays in NVidia's driver14:30
wolfjbI have libpcsclite1 64bit installed but that won't work for me14:30
airtonixjlebrech, closest you get to ideas on start up is : ailurus14:30
Dzaecktime watcher14:30
Burzmalidj_segfault: I'm running nvidia too, let me check that out.14:30

kyngbuntuthank you very much15:22
gunkstaabulu: then here's the problem. i'm guessing that these dependencies were originally installed as a dependency for something else. try installing this file with a --reinstall flag and it should stop autoremove from trying to remove it.15:22

souffledevPici, why?15:29

souffledevPici, lemme go through it again and see any discrepancies in the main config thanks15:31

arvind_khadrigalerien, sudo dpkg --configure -a ; sudo apt-get install -f15:32
galerieni'll trie it, thx15:32
gunkstaabulu: doesn't really matter. Apt knows why it installed something. Did you ask for it specifically (user required) or was it installed as a dependancy. In the latter case autoremove will try to take it off the system if it is no longer required. That's why reinstalling it will fix the issue, because it will set the package to required.15:32

wyclif_geekphreak: yes, stage files too15:37
wyclif_geekphreak: Ah! the plot thickens...15:38
geekphreakwyclif_:  you will have to edit the mneu.lst file15:38
wyclif_geekphreak: I now wonder why my grub didn't update15:38

peleczekwyclif when you have a menu on startup does it say 0.97 or 1.96 or something?15:39
wyclif_peleczek: I'll have to check elsewhere, cos that will require a reboot otherwise ;)15:40
gunkstaabulu: no need to remove anything. ANY apt command will trigger the autoremove message, if there's anything apt wants to auto-remove. if you throw out apt-get instal --reinstall foobar it should reinstall foobar, not remove it.15:40
gunkstaabulu: what's the list of stuff apt wants to remove?15:40
