sebsebsebTelvana: I tried and tried when testing Ubuntu 10.04 in development to like the default black theme, but I kind of do, but then open Firefox and things look way to black for my likeing.00:00
bobbyand the "move to the deleted folder" or whatever - seriously?00:00
Scunizioly562: then you have a choice to make.. we all get a little fat eventually :)00:00
sebsebsebbobby: no they aren't00:00
sebsebsebbobby: this is only the start of it, they want Ubuntu to be more like Mac OS X00:00
kevroly562> you might tryout wireshark m8.00:00
demifurorhello, how can i make empathy launch on system startup?00:00
bobbysebsebseb: yeah that was my firstr thought00:00
sebsebsebbobby: maybe in Gnome 3 they will be on the right, but probably not for the Canonical themes.00:00
bobbyi'd drop ubuntu and go with debian in a heartbeat00:00
oly562so my original question needs rephrasing, what is a nice gui driven wireless sniffer designed for wireless networks that my son could use, he is 900:01
mfoxsebsebseb: thats BAD00:01
oly562something simple00:01
rick_how do i get the cpu scaling monitor in 10.04 to default to ondemand instead of performance when i boot my pc?00:01
oly562pretty yet featured00:01
Telvanaok, well I have found one serious dealbreaker with Ubuntu One. It requires me to use Firefox to sync my favorites. No dice. I have been a pretty big fan of Chrome lately. =(00:01
sebsebsebmfox: They want Ubuntu to compete more properly against Mac OS X00:01
kevroly562> ..what do you mean by sniffer m800:01
running_rabbit07No, they want Ubuntu to be like ubuntu!00:01
bobbyi'm setting up a new system, and didn't like kubuntu - absolutelly awful, ubuntu was going to be my savior, but now i'm unsure00:01
kevrlooking at the network packets, or cracking wireless?00:01
ktzqbpTelvana: fair enough then, if ubuntu one's got features you like. I don't have experience with the paid service myself sorry :)00:01

bobbyubuntu is becoming commercial - free 2gb space00:01
oly562mfox: he is 900:01
sebsebsebbobby: indeed00:01
bobbyit feels dodgy and wrong00:01
oly562not simple enough00:01
kevroly562> if hes 9, why does he need a packet sniffer?00:01
GeekSquidlee_: reinstall xorg-video-intel00:02
kevri doubt he can even understand what he'd be seeing00:02
sebsebsebbobby: 9.10 was the start of the commerlisation, more will be coming00:02

lee_GeekSquid how?00:02
kevrahh00:02
kevrgotcha.00:02
oly562i gave him my old linux lappy00:02
Telvanaktzqbp: Do you know of any other file backup utilities kinda like (GASP) Mozy that will work with Linux? I suppose I could always get some hosting space that has SSH access and just rdiff it.00:02
bobbysebsebseb: i've only used 8, and was happy with that00:02
kevroly562> you could setup wireshark for him so that its a few clicks and ready to go..00:02
sebsebsebbobby: well Canonical is a for profit company they want to make money,  so that's ok, but depending on how they do it,  they will annoy certain users, and others will really like it00:02
kevrmaking it simple00:02
bobbyi think it may be time for me to look elsewhere then00:02
oly562i would like to also purchase a prism2 usb or pcle card with that chipset for him to play around with00:03
sebsebsebbobby: well there's Debian sure,  and  Mandriva and loads of great other distros out there00:03
oly562kevr: wireshark is info kill lol00:03
Naryacan I run KDE based games on gnome?00:03
bobbysebsebseb: i understand, but then why contribute your time freely to dev for an os so they can make money from what you do00:03
kevralright, alright00:03
sebsebsebNarya: yes00:03
lee_GeekSquid also the reason why I deleted it I wasn't able to see the login screen in lucid, it just went to a black screen00:03

oly562i was thinkin bout the kde desktop for him, but the new 9.10 look is too much, he likes gnome better00:04
oly562father like son ;)00:04
sebsebsebbobby: Going off topic even more,  and probably not really the best place to say this,  but maybe you should find out about Canonicals copy right assignment as well.00:04

bobbythough i can understand the long run to compete as a serious os00:06
bobbysebsebseb: why? this is related to #ubuntu?00:06
sebsebsebbobby: 1. we are off topic 2.  this kind of convo isn't really  the best one to have in this channel00:06

ubuntu_madhttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent I dont know which one to choose00:07
conner... how can i get my linksys wirelss card in my dekstop to work correctly when running a unix OS?00:07

Guest49523How do I do multi line coding in pyshel so it doesn't interprest each line individually?00:08

kevrso he wont even use CLI00:09
kevrfor that00:09

sebsebsebbobby: however depending on how it's done, may not last that long in there00:09
bsmith093have there been a lot of updates for lucid because im running it and ive barely seen any00:10
Loshkilat: No, but I use ssmtp to send mail thru a comcast.com server. It should be broadly similar...00:10
sebsebsebyes hi Loshki00:10
Guest49523Does anyone know how to turn the interactive mode off in PyShell? So it doesn't interpret each line?00:10
FyreFoXReilithion: no I havent00:10

sebsebsebbobby: since Ubuntu is based on Debian, it's rather much so like Ubuntu, but with out the commercilisation and such00:10

Hawaiian_EskimoChogyDan: ddrescue01:16
acerimmers-001: ok, sounds like maybe you got bit by grub.  If you're dual booting, it's easy to mess up BUT01:16
acerimmers-001: if it's noly a grub issue, windows should still be there.  XP/Vista/7?01:16

MikeH_Is it an issue with LVM?01:17

jmspeexI'm running Lucid BTW01:22
daroluzetheroo: yes it is possible, you have to create a directory with the images in it and create a xml with the options, they need to be in /usr/share/backgrounds (I think)01:22
hydesteri'm trying to flash a bios on a motherboard that requires a dos EXE program.  i tried to make a bootable cdrom via k3b and using "edit boot image" and then dragged the files i wanted in the project and burned.  it boots fine, but i don't see the files i added. any suggestions?01:23

rodrisomebody speak spanish ? Cause in the spanish channel, no there arent nothing.... (sorry 4 my english)01:24
daroluzetheroo: there may be a simple way to do it but I don't know it, it's easier for me to create the XML :p it's very simple, xml is a very simple language, open the cosmos one with gedit to study it01:24
ChogyDanhaavaros: Ive used different kernels without any trouble.  It is just unsupported.01:24
Loshkibeav_35: http://pastebin.com/1nXYcqDJ01:25

daroluzetheroo: gedit /usr/share/backgrounds/cosmos/background-1.xml01:25
haavarosChogyDan: Yeah, but how do I get there? I.e. what do I do to install the kernels? Just via synaptic?01:25
ChogyDanhaavaros: there is something called the mainline ppa01:25
beav_35Loshki: got it thanks01:25
cmwslwi need to select where to install grub on since i'm upgrading to lucid01:25
ChogyDanhaavaros: you may want to file-a-bug01:26
zetheroodarolu: so you have to specify each photo to be used in the xml file?01:26
daroluhaavaros: yes you can install them via Synaptic, that would be the smart choice; there is a PPA with the latest kernels, you can use them too but they are not 100% reliable01:26
xompbobby, installed gitk guessing it's one of them command line apps too huh?01:26
rwwcmwslw: yes, it's usually installed on drives01:26

luis_I think I will have to reinstall Kubuntu from a live CD again lossing all my data... for some reason the actu to 10.04 is broken and fucked my OS. At the start of the boot, before user and password, something related to an kernel error is displayed and after login some packages are broken and there is not application panel, just the pic of the desktop, is there some way to install again the OS without losing data?01:27

juancacan anyone help me here to use ubuntu server in virtualbox... I mean how to comunicate with the host and use it from there01:32
KaOSoFtIs it just me, or since 9.04 (or 9.10), whenever the installation ends, it ejects the installation disc, and then starts displaying errors?01:33
juancathe host is ubuntu desktop01:33
GeekSquidjuanca: best bet ask in #virtualbox01:33
U-b-u-n-t-uKaOSoFt, thats what happen to me01:33
LoshkiU-b-u-n-t-u: if it ever happens again, you can check the iso without having to re-download it by running an md5sum on it, and also if you see it again, please write down the exact text of the i/o error message, ok?01:33
aguitelU-b-u-n-t-u, you upgrade to 10.04?01:33
U-b-u-n-t-uyes01:34
KaOSoFtOh, I did a fresh install.01:34
KaOSoFtAlways do.01:34

U-b-u-n-t-uaguitel,  yes01:34
aguitelU-b-u-n-t-u, the problem is fresh install01:34

RhamphoryncusKaOSoFt: the release notes say it's a harmless error in the installer.  The worst it does is hide the message telling you to reboot :)01:35
demitriusbut it did *look* cooler!  ;-D01:35

soundconjurerI've installed all the proposed updates01:38

U-b-u-n-t-usoundconjurer, was it a fresh install? and you just get a cursor?01:39
soundconjurernope01:39
ChogyDanluis_: something like, on a terminal: sudo rsync -aS /home/. /backup_location/.        You _might_ be able to just reinstall as is, but you should always have a backup of your important stuff01:39
soundconjurerIt doesn't even cursor01:39
U-b-u-n-t-usoundconjurer, but it was a fresh install?01:39
soundconjurerIt just goes black and does nothing endlessly01:39
LoshkiMikeH_: /etc/default/grub and /etc/grub.d...01:39
soundconjurerThat and live disc fails too01:40
demitriusI'll try again in another month or so with 10.x01:40
h00kMikeH_: Actually, Grub2 is quite nice, if you check out the wiki, you'll see the menu list is generated and uses defaults and things you change in /etc/default/grub and then there are other ways to customize the entries01:40
soundconjurerbut booting from recovery on failsade graphics works01:40

GeekSquidlocalgh0st: another thing, in order for flash sound to work you need to be running the desktop kernel.. disabling "it" doesn't technically change anything, except it falls back to esound, then OSS then ALSA, depending on how your sound is setup in lucid .. as we are using pulse audio in lucid by default, you'd need to have "it" un installed for it to fall back to pulse, except that in my case it works with or without it installed02:17

localgh0stGeekSquid, what are you suggesting I do then?02:19
justntimeI'm taking no response as no compelling reason to use amd64 if I want good performance but maximum support & compatibility.. :) thx02:19
codygmanHas anyone ever had the terminal stop displaying?02:19

localgh0stGeekSquid, Also my desktop just crashed and is acting really funky. Can't type in some windows... If I disappear I'll be back in a few02:20

Tech-Mikesup peeps, uped to 10.04 and the purple boot screen sux - what are my customize options?02:21
sebsebsebTech-Mike: there are some plymouth themes in the repo02:21
Gneadante123: it might be worth exploring at some point, just to keep your bases covered.02:21
GeekSquidconner: it should, as the psd format is  a standard, however it may not have all the extensions that have been added to CS502:22
dante123not that I am aware of, but he often gets the welcome to ubuntu screen..which is a file on the computer.....how do I check that proxy thing on firefox02:22
sebsebsebTech-Mike: also some of us have had some right issues with it, but  a little while ago I found out how to fix mine,  thanks to rww02:22
wildbatguest1, did to install gnome-panel at all? ;p02:22
Gneadante123: go to preferences and check advanced->network02:22
hiexpoTech-Mike, go to sofypedia it tells all the options to fixing that problem02:22
connerGeekSquid: thanks man much apreciation im new to Ubuntu much less any other unix based OS just got xubuntu last night02:23
hiexposoftpedia sorry02:23
dante123okay, what should he select No proxy, or use system proxy or what?02:23
Gneadante123: it should say "Connection" with a 'settings' button to the right of it, that's the button to click on02:23
Tech-Mikesebsebseb: "right issues" ?02:24
gluonmanacerimmer, that doesn't seem to have mention of switching defaults between two different installs of grub on the same computer.  If I boot from the liveCD and use the root command in grub and specify the partition where my desired grub install is located, will that make it default? Or will that actually re-install or overwrite it?02:24
deborahi just got wubi and i have an nvidia gpu, should i dl anything else to run video games? I play wow02:24
dante123yeah, what should that look like.....which choice should he go there02:24
amabois there a shortcut or some way to detect displays? i like to disable the display for my laptop when its plugged into my monitor but if i unplug the monitor (or close my laptop) i can't re-enable it. any help on this would be greatly appreciated02:24
GeekSquidconner: go ahead, keep in mind I don't have all the answers02:24
sebsebsebTech-Mike: yes Plymouth doesn't like propritary Nivida and ATI drivers02:24
=== dabomb69 is now known as Chazz
Gneadante123: should be 4 choices, and it should be set to 'no proxy' (which connects directly through the internet connection)02:24
acerimmergluonman: I belive that will overwrite it02:24
sebsebsebTech-Mike: so when that's installed,  there will be problems02:24
dante123choices are no proxy, autodetect for this network, use system and manual02:24
gluonmanacerimmer, that's what I was afraid of, and so didn't try it.02:24
localgh0stGeekSquid, did you see my response? Any ideas?02:24
Tech-Mikesebsebseb: ya ive got nvidia geforce 8800 gt02:25
dante123okay will try02:25
sebsebsebTech-Mike: Plymouth has been loading up ok for you though, it sounded like02:25
sebsebsebTech-Mike: did you install propritary driver?02:25

sebsebsebTech-Mike: well depends on card and driver if there are issues or not02:25
Tech-Mikesebsebseb:  the driver was installed before my distro upgrade02:26
sebsebsebTech-Mike: the driver was stilll installed, when I upgrded from 9.10, and then I had Plymouth issues02:26
GeekSquidconner: have you tried using the Restricted Drivers Manager? in System>Admin02:26
deborahi read that radeon card drivers arent typically linux friendly, is that true or still true?02:26
Tech-Mikesebsebseb: i havent noticed any issues, just dont like the purple02:26
sebsebsebdeborah: ATI is known for bad Linux support02:26

connerGeekSquid: no, not sure how to use it after all this is only my first full day with xubuntu02:27
sebsebsebTech-Mike: also that's the new colour of Ubuntu, purple02:27

noahhello, I'm new to ubuntu, and am trying to get terminal server client to connect to my vista machine on same network, but keep failing.  Anyone have a suggestion?04:20
Bash128h00k, but... i was boot this system this week, and the problemhas been ocurred last year04:20
abadabad00onetinsoldier - I guess what I need to do is get whatever paconfig is doing set up in the startup of the machine04:21
nb72YankDownUnder: poweroff as in click the shutdown right? not hold the power button?04:21
YankDownUnderzetheroo, If you use a "brown bag" version of the smb.conf, and add the shares using the Samba configuration admin utility, all should be happy mate.04:21
abadabad00onetinsoldier - where are sound configuration things placed in ubuntu 10.04?04:21
onetinsoldierabadabad00: yeah, sounds like that might be a reasonable solution04:21
zetherooYankDownUnder: what part of "down under" are you from?04:21
YankDownUnderScunizi, S'all good - I just gave up mucking with it and stuck to the "repo" stuff for clients - do other things for my personal systems04:21
zetherooYankDownUnder: is that in synaptic?04:21
h00kBash128: If you cannot see your BIOS come up, that means that you are having a problem occuring before the SO even boots04:21
Bash128h00k,  in the past, I can boot this system when this problmen was04:21
h00kBash128: OS *04:21

zetherooYankDownUnder: oh ok .. I am in Adelaide04:22
nb72OK.  I'll be back after I give this a try.04:22
YankDownUnderzetheroo, Yes...you'll find the Samba admin util there04:22
onetinsoldierabadabad00: i don't know. i'd have to start looking around.04:22
Bash128yes h00k04:22
YankDownUnderzetheroo, Adelaide is great - when it's not COLD04:22
zetherooYankDownUnder: yeah .. moving back to Sydney in August04:22

decocaldwell: what CPU do you have ?04:23
ScuniziYankDownUnder: yea.. this box I just upgraded from 8.10>9.04>9.10>10.04 yesterday.. everything was smooth until I hit 10.04 then the trouble began.. not much really.. just little annoyances.. like not being able to boot to the recovery kernel but desktop work.. dropping to TTY2 and issuing a gdm stop then trying to install the nvidia driver only to have it tell me X is still running.. etc.. weird..04:24
Bash128and I try to make an bootable USB whith the BIOS but dont boot from USB04:24
YankDownUnderzetheroo, /usr/sbin/system-config-samba04:24
caldwellamd turion 6404:24
Scunizicaldwell: use vlc04:24
YankDownUnderScunizi, Ain't happy on "upgraded" boxen mate...too much clutter laying about, and dangerous on my end04:24
Jordan_UBash128: http://www.flashrom.org/04:24
zetherooYankDownUnder: ok .. thats the one ... I suppose I should reinstall samba now that I have mucked with it04:24
h00kBash128: Yeah, I guess I'm not sure if it's a BIOS problem, graphics card problem, or a monitor problem04:24
YankDownUnderzetheroo, Just steal a blank smb.conf and work from that...04:25
caldwelli had to use movie player to watch this quicktime clip to do my homework off the internet or can i switch it to vlc04:25
ScuniziYankDownUnder: yea.. I though I'd try it this time.. typically just fresh install.. I do have a cd so I may go that route still.04:25
bikcmpIf I restart/shutdown the computer when it's upgrading to lucid... will it explode? (you get what I mean. as in what will happen?)04:25
noahwildbat, is it possible to connect remotely to a windows machine using terminal server?04:25
zetherooYankDownUnder: as in completely blank?04:25
Scunizibikcmp: you'll be toast with burnt edges04:25
un214explode no, but you have a slim chance of needing a rescue cd to fix it booting again04:25
Bash128h00k ok thanks04:26
Jordan_Ubikcmp: Is it still downloading or actually installing packages?04:26
YankDownUnderScunizi, What can be done, with a live cd, is to manually blow out all the mods and kernel source links to the nvidia driver - then start again - know what I mean?04:26
Bash128Jordan_U, thanks too04:26
bikcmpactually installing.04:26
zetherooYankDownUnder: btw, was there a Lucid release party in Sydney?04:26
bikcmp4 hours left.  it's 12 here. lol04:26
Jordan_UBash128: You're welcome.04:26
YankDownUnderzetheroo, Not completely blank, no - just the "barebones" smb.conf that comes with the original code04:26
ScuniziYankDownUnder: oh yea.. I just reformat / for the fresh install leaving the /home partition intact04:26
YankDownUnderzetheroo, Not sure - I had it on a boat...hehehehehehe04:26
tech-mikesebsebseb: well i tried what was on that softpedia link, and it didnt work - dont know if its because of nvidia or my resolution 1440x900-2404:26
zetherooYankDownUnder: where would I find one of them?04:26
zetherooYankDownUnder: ahh ... good an ya04:26
Jordan_Ubikcmp: Things could be very hard to fix if you reboot then.04:26
YankDownUnderScunizi, Yeah - tha'ts always a good one - just don't touch the /home part and you're good as gold - Bob's yer uncle!04:27

YankDownUnderzetheroo, service samba restart (in a term as root)04:33
YankDownUnderzetheroo, Else, /etc/init.d/smb restart04:33

zetherooYankDownUnder: see when I put samba in the first command I get "samba: unrecognised service"04:34
zetherooYankDownUnder: instead I have to use smbd .... why is that?04:35
un214ubuntu: it's hard without knowing exactly what's broken. However reinstall over the existing w/o formatting/erasing should do it in most cases.04:35
YankDownUnderzetheroo, Strange that - well, you do the /etc/init.d/smb restart04:35
phillipsjkThe problem is the autorun.exe is not set executable, neither is setup.exe  DOS/Windows9x used extensions to determine if a file was executable.04:35
crdlbsafe: well, that setting will work with gtk-window-decorator04:35

zetheroopepee: meaning?04:36
YankDownUnderzetheroo, Checking on machine here...hang one04:36

phillipsjkonetinsoldier, both I and un214 mentioned an alternative: mount the disk such that all files are deemed executable.04:37
winXPusercharels88 what is the exact issue of yours?04:38
onetinsoldierphillipsjk: ahh, sounds like that would work04:38
zetheroopepee: ok ... but why are those commands not working for me?04:38
charels88i can boot from it but it wont install i just stalls when i select it04:38
YankDownUnderzetheroo, Ah....ah ha...one of the machines HERE didn't have Samba installed on it - hence it didn't have the smb or samba service - however, the SMB configuration was there, and it's able to access SMB shares via GnomeVFS....right...so I'm installing Samba on that machine now (apt-get install samba)04:38
Jordan_Ucaldwell: If you mean totem, and you mean the video backend, use "gstreamer-properties". But before you do that, what are you trying to accomplish?04:38

zetherooYankDownUnder: ok ... well I have samba installed for sure ....04:39
onetinsoldierphillipsjk: you could also try asking in the #winehq channel about this04:39

loftus49I have a dual boot system with Ubuntu Lucid on one hard drive and Windows xp on the other.  The default boot is to Ubuntu.  However, if I want windows then I scroll down to it and select within 5 seconds.  However, most times, the keyboard doesn't respond and I am unable to scroll down.  How can I fix this?  I could not find a grub.conf file.04:56
Guest99344jrib: 10.04 -- installed the minimal ISO then did apt-get install ubuntu-desktop to install the remainder of the system -- the system has a dodgy CD drive, and no other ISO images would work.04:56

kepp1oabadabad00:  dreamlinux is another flavor of linux.05:31

mook_i want to stay root forever!05:36
pvl1think_, ty too, never thought to do that05:36

ravibnYankDownUnder : Gnome05:37
gnufunmook_: man sudo05:37
pvl1think_, oops wrong person. but np05:37

YankDownUnderUbuntuJeff, Awesome mate - deposit 40 mil in my account and we're cool mate! :)05:38
PsynoKhi0greetings, I was wondering if the old partition alignment applied even in dual-boot with other previously installed linux distros05:38
mook_ubuntu is a SERVER... not a desktop... you never see windows asking for passwords05:38
abadabad00wow... how about that.... audacity just works. No bs. I just tell it "hey, this is my output card and this other one here? its my input card". Audacity goes - "oh yeah, super. let me just do that without a hassle!"05:38
UbuntuJeffYankDownUnder, lmao! I wish I had even 1 mil lol05:38
YankDownUnderravibn, Add => Notification Area05:38
macomook_: thats because windows is Doin It Wrong05:38
mxe5linuxgec1o; I just used the shell command - head -n 5 /etc/apt/sources.list - and it said this -  http://imagebin.org/95506 - So is this the Final release version ? I have been doing updates all along ? ?05:38
abadabad00now to get ubuntu proper to do this.....05:38
krelboynemook: if you really want to... go on and get a password for your root acount, that way you could access from gdm as root05:38
YankDownUnderUbuntuJeff, Ok..I'll take beer, and women05:38
macomook_: why do you think windows gets so much malware issues?05:38
UbuntuJeffYankDownUnder, all I got is whiskey and no women sorry, but if you like whiskey got a full bottle in there05:38
krelboynemook: not a good idea by the way05:39

YankDownUnderMS Windows was designed from the beginning as a single user OS => basically a graphical menu system sitting ontop of MSDOS. It hasn't changed in the past 18 years much.05:39
pvl1maco, what about a keyring?05:39
macopvl1: what?05:39
mook_i do not have full access to the entire system, i can't mod system files with just copy and paste like i can in windows, i been modding windows since 95..05:40
PsynoKhi0YankDownUnder: cancel or allow? hehe05:40
pvl1maco, if mook_ sets up a keyring, would the sys still bother him05:40
YankDownUnderPsynoKhi0, Both.05:40
linuxgec1omxe5:  that output makes no sense to me..05:40

mxe5linuxgec1o; ok - try a different one ?05:41
UbuntuJeffI know this is random, but I will say in my opinion I think 10.04 is better then 9.04 to me anyways. Seems to run smoother and faster.05:41
Adman65I'm on 8.04 LTS, is there some way to upgrade to 10.04 LTS ?05:41
Out_Coldmook_, maco also means you can't 'accidentally' mess up your compy05:41
macomook_: read th wiki page i linked you to05:41
macomook_: itll answer your questions and tell you why you're making a big mistake05:41
pvl1mook_, OPEN SOURCE means u can DOWNLOAD the SOURCE CODE05:41
FeasibilityStudywhy is Ubuntu One downloading all the stuff I uploaded when I do a sync?  I don't want it all back on my PC.05:41
macoOut_Cold: oy yeah that too05:41
UbuntuJeffAdman65, yeah upgrade to 8.10, then 9.04, then 9.10, then 10.04. you would be better off just doing a clean install.05:41
macoFeasibilityStudy: because thats what "sync" means05:41
mxe5linuxgec1o; I know that why I'm confused about it reporting something about Beta05:41
Out_ColdFeasibilityStudy, that's One for ya... syncs all computers connected05:41
bazhangAdman65, UbuntuJeff lts to lts upgrade is supported in one step05:41
macoFeasibilityStudy: synchronized... matching... whatever's on your desktop matches the server05:42
FeasibilityStudymaco: yeah I understand that, but is there a way to turn off downloading?05:42
PsynoKhi0mook_: open source and privileges have nothing to do with each other actually05:42
UbuntuJeffbazhang, oh! sorry. I didn't know that.05:42
Adman65bazhang: how ?05:42
macoFeasibilityStudy: so you just use it as an ftp server?05:42
PsynoKhi0user privileges*05:42
FeasibilityStudymaco: basically yeah05:42
bazhang!upgrade | Adman65 please read this05:42
ubottuAdman65 please read this: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading05:42
FeasibilityStudyremote storage05:42
mook_i would be making a misstake by using windows, which can easily play all my games without locking them out, thats why i have firewalls, i never got a virus on windows in 3 years, i always checks my system prossess05:42
LoshkiAdman65: note that if you are accustomed to and like 8.04 stability, I think it's premature to upgrade to 10.04...05:43
AbuMaia1mook_ so why are you coming to Ubuntu if you haven't had problems with Windows?05:43
macoFeasibilityStudy: im not sure about that...its probably possible to set the server up as an ftp network folder, but i wouldnt know the info to give it to do that05:43
Out_Coldmook_, linux isn't for everyone. if you love windows so much, stick to it05:43
Adman65need more up to date ruby packages05:43
YankDownUnderFunny that - after years and years of folks ALWAYS saying "Don't upgrade" - and that advice is reflected all over the net - everywhere you look - you still find people doing upgrades and wondering why they have issues...sorry, just had to state the obvious.05:43
mook_i only needed 15 process to run windows!!!05:43
macomook_: good for you05:43
PsynoKhi0Out_Cold: bad answer >.<05:43
UbuntuJeffAdman65, try this link, its for the beta but should work still for what you want. http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/lucid/beta105:44
Out_ColdPsynoKhi0, can't change the unwilling05:44
macoYankDownUnder: eh? i dont tend to see lots of "dont upgrade!" rather "zomg the new stuff is so cool!! UPGRADE!"05:44
UbuntuJeffAdman65, has a section called "Upgrading from Ubuntu 9.10 or Ubuntu 8.04 LTS"05:44
Loshkimook_: I was interested that you mentioned modding above. I would say that modding takes on a whole new dimension when you have the source code for everything...05:44
PsynoKhi0Out_Cold: you can always direct them to other distros with separate root user and let them trash their system to heir heart's content :P05:44

FeasibilityStudyPsynoKhi0: You don't need a different distro for that:  I use Ubuntu and I have a root user.05:45
doleyb_abadabad00: you can simply apt-get remove pulseaudio05:45
macomook_: nobody is forcing you to switch to ubuntu05:45
CogitoErgoSamYank:  I think some of the problems might be that people interpreted 10.04's status as an LTS to mean it is completely and utterly stable, perfect, etc...05:45

macoYankDownUnder: but "dont upgrade EVAR"... not so much05:47
YankDownUndermaco, "Using" "Installing" and "Upgrading" are three different things, my friend...upgrading from versions ain't always a nice happy clean way to go...05:47

CogitoErgoSamAnyone else that can help linuxgecko with post-grub video driver issues?05:57
pvl1_pg_, aw that blows. get a smaller ubuntu disc and just install w.e else u need. im guessing xubuntu is xfce?05:57
macogerzel: you need to give it user & group i think.  sudo chown user:group filename05:57
abadabad00any way to get my colume icon back in the taskbar? (presumably i am no using 'ALSA'05:57
UbuntuJeffabadabad00, curiousity, what were you having troubles with sound working in? with pulseaudio I mean.05:57
macoabadabad00: the volume icon is a pulseaudio thing. youre going to have to use "alsamixer" in the terminal to make adjustments05:58
abadabad00omfg05:58
macoabadabad00: wait your issue was just audacity, right?05:58
karma_policewhats the easiest way to backup a list of what all you have installed to make it easier for next install?05:58
macoabadabad00: just use pa-suspender with audacity05:58
abadabad00sorry about that om....05:58

abadabad00my issue was sound working in all of ubuntu. it seemed to work only in Audacity (ALSA). This prompted me to uninstall pulse audio05:59
pvl1_pg_, y not, and im guessing uve checked bios? or does it not have that either05:59

PsynoKhi0ok I'll try again with a concrete example: I currently run karmic/arch linux as dual boot on an oldish laptop, ubuntu manages grub, both share a partition for home, different users...

karma_policety.. thats what i was lookin for06:00
dabaRmaco: you're saying that the volume icon in the panel is a pulseaudio thing, and if one uses alsa they can't have it/use it?06:00

linuxgec1odabaR: yes, you are. i've learned the hard way that while it's good for many thing,   ubuntu us not the best for  EVERYTHING.06:26
DanaGinteresting thing: http://users.csc.calpoly.edu/~dgoyette/Screenshot-netbook.png06:26
chmacsean12837: I'm not sure if you can force that within the PHP script itself, but you could probably bind apache to one IP06:26
DanaGany of you read Mark Shuttleworth's thing about the new notifications?06:26
YokanzoCan anyone tell me if Ubuntu supports booting from PCI SATA controller cards on older motherboards?06:26
DanaGMy screenshot shows why it's STILL better to have the buttons on the right. =þ06:26
chmacsean12837: Maybe more relevant to ##php or #apache though06:26
YankDownUnderYokanzo, Should do fine mate06:26
DanaGYokanzo: Depends on the motherboard BIOS and the add-in card's ROM, partly.06:27
YankDownUnderChanging the buttons ain't a hard thing to accomplish...just a gconf hack...06:27
dabaRlinuxgec1o: whatever works is the best for anything, for sure, anyway, thanks for your input.06:27
Geoffrey2ok, what is the .xsession-errors file?06:27
YokanzoI got an A8V Deluxe which means that it came out when SATA was still new06:27
YankDownUnderGeoffrey2, Um...it contains the errors that X spits forth when not playing nicely...06:27
DanaGAnd even if the motherboard doesn't natively support it, you could put a small boot partition on a main drive, and then the rest somewhere else.06:27
YokanzoIt has a SATA controller attached to the bios but only supports SATA1 while my drives are SATA 206:28
Yokanzoi wanted to make a file server06:28
roger_Yokanzo: I used to have one. It worked great back in the day with other ubuntu distros pre-dating 9.0406:28
YankDownUnderThe real difference between a workstation and a file server: The file server doesn't have your pr0n on it.06:28
Yokanzooh great, so the general consensus is that its possible to boot from a SATA controller?06:28
YankDownUnder:)06:28
PsynoKhi0nocturnus: my bad, yes, partition type W95 in fdisk, choice code "b"06:28
roger_lol at yank06:28
CogitoErgoSamYank:  Depends how much pr0n you're talking about :D06:28
YokanzoThanks guys, very much appreciated.06:29
roger_and Yokanzo: I would say yes, That being my experience. But again, not every system is alike.06:29
IdleOne!ohmy06:29
ubottuPlease remember that all Ubuntu IRC channels share the same attitude of providing friendly and polite interaction with all users of all ages and cultures. Basically, this means no foul language and no abuse towards others.06:29
YankDownUnderCogitoErgoSam, Ok...true true true....but I was "generalising" :)06:29
Geoffrey2YankDownUnder, mine has error messages created by it looking for stuff that doesn't exist anymore...06:29
CogitoErgoSamI'm just playin' along06:29
nocturnusPsynoKhi0: right-o06:29
YankDownUnderGeoffrey2, It's actually safe to delete that file mate...it gets recreated every time you fire up Xorg...06:29
linuxgec1odabaR:  yeah..  i tried installing a web app developed in debian by a narrow-minded dev. had some nasty, hard-to-maintain pinning i had to do,  jsut to get it to START working. when you have to go off-road like that,  i hate some things about ubuntu. my other distro is better at "off the normal path" stuff like that.06:29
Geoffrey2YankDownUnder, which file?06:30
YankDownUnderGeoffrey2, the .xsession-errors06:30
YokanzoWhat kinda transfer rates can you expect with a SATA card anyway?06:30
Geoffrey2YankDownUnder, yeah, but that won't solve the errors I keep getting06:30
CogitoErgoSamno, it won't.  Not all errors are critical though06:30
Geoffrey2YankDownUnder, gconf-sanity-check has a cow every time I boot up06:30
DanaGYokanzo: what matters more is that the add-in card has an "option ROM".06:31
YankDownUnderGeoffrey2, What you can do (the purpose of this file) is to chase down the programs you DON'T have any longer, and remove them from your desktop environment, or any other related place...(or in settings, etc etc etc)06:31
YokanzoWhat's an option ROM?06:31
DanaGfor example, with a silicon image sata controller, some boards have a jumper to enable or disable it.06:31
linuxgec1oZykoticK9: what will removing quiet and slapsh from the boot do for me, to get a non-blank gui?06:31
DanaGWith it enabled, and with the motherboard set to allow "scsi" (and other such terms) boot, it's usable.06:32
linuxgec1oZykoticK9:  just unhide all the guts?06:32
CogitoErgoSamlinuxgec1o:  Its no guarantee but, like the i915 attempt, if you do it via the grub menu it can't hurt06:32
DanaGWhen a motherboard boots, it pokes all its add-in cards to see if they offer a boot ability.06:32
ZykoticK9linuxgec1o, it might not do anything - but you might see an error message, or if plymouth splash is the problem will remove it.  Yes unhide all the guts.06:32
YokanzoEven older mobos Dana?06:32
Geoffrey2YankDownUnder, I'd simply like to get rid of the nice box that pops up and tells me gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with a status 25606:32
chmacAnyone know if keyservers operate on a port other than 80/443?06:32
roger_haha06:32
YokanzoMy A8V came out around 200506:33
abadabad00hi. i reinstalled pulse audio and my sound finally works. I lost my volume indicator in the taskbar though. I've searched ixquick and google, but no answers. Anyone know how to get the volume icon in the task bar?06:33
ZykoticK9abadabad00, if lucid - right click, add to panel, indicator applet06:34
YankDownUnderGeoffrey2, Have you tried removing gconf-sanity-check from the startup applications?06:34
nomad77abadabad00: try gnome-panel --restart if ZykoticK9 's tip fails06:34
DanaGYokanzo: yeah, old motherboards can likely do it, too.06:34
PsynoKhi0crucialhoax: *06:35
abadabad00ZykoticK9 - yes, I am in Lucid. Indicator applet unfortunately only adds the envelope (for email)06:35
DanaGNext time you reboot the thing, if you already have the add-in card, try poking around in the BIOS settings.06:35
PsynoKhi0crucialhoax: darn sorry, bad paste, hang on06:35
DanaGThough, something to note: PCI-based SATA controllers are a pain.06:35
ZykoticK9abadabad00, if you see the mail icon, but no volume - i'm sorry i don't know.  good luck.06:35
Geoffrey2YankDownUnder, it's not needed?06:35
DanaGThe PCI bus is a bottleneck... heavy disk activity bogs down absolutely everything else.... even things not touching the hard drive.06:36
PsynoKhi0crucialhoax: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/HAL#USB_sticks_and_drives_do_not_automount_correctly this is what I experienced in Arch, might be useful to you06:36

CogitoErgoSamabadabad00:  It might be possible through gconf-editor...I'm digging around the Panel settings to see if I can find something corresponding to the volume06:37
DanaGYokanzo: what's the onboard chipset?  With ordinary hard drives, you may be better off sticking with onboard SATA.06:37
roger_term_oldcomp1 yes it will06:37
abadabad00CogitoErgoSam - thanks!06:37
YankDownUnderGeoffrey2, Well, depends on yer perspective. Does everything work already without it spitting forth a cow every time you boot?06:37
ZykoticK9nomad77, abadabad00 to restart gnome-panel, just kill it and it should auto restart with "killall gnome-panel"06:37
YokanzoI have two onboard chipsets06:37

Sna4x8YankDownUnder: Ahh, yea I guess it has 94% usage.07:01
bazhangdhruvasagar, /msg ubottu please07:01
IdleOnedhruvasagar: stop that07:01
abadabad00CogitoErgoSam - thanks! I've got things working now! Only thing is my setup (one Sound Blaster Audigy 4 and one M-Audio Audiophile 192) doesn't work properly unless I configure it with 'paconfig'. But the config doesn't stick (if I restart or even log out and log back in without a restart it goes back to 'normal' / nonworking mode). Any idea how to get the settings to stick?07:01
dhruvasagarbazhang: ok will try that07:01
Sna4x8YankDownUnder: I have 123GB free on my main partition though.  So what, I need to resize boot?07:01
YankDownUnderftab, Um - Lynx uses plymouth...07:01
dhruvasagarI was just trying to get a list of commands that ubottu recognizes07:01
YankDownUnderSna4x8, Yeah - just by about 50mb mate07:02
Xcellhey, why is it when i try to install 195.36.24 in 10.04, it tells me that i have logcal errors  ??07:02
bazhangdhruvasagar, /msg ubottu factoids07:02
CogitoErgoSamabadabad00: Where are the settings in question being saved?07:02
Sna4x8YankDownUnder: Word *busts out gparted.  Thanks.07:02
ftabYankDownUnder, when I try to start StartupManager it exits with this error Grub2 detected07:02
ftabUsplash not detected07:02
ftabSplashy not detected07:02
dhruvasagarbazhang: thank you07:02
abadabad00Streetboys: You need more help? Just msg me and we can talk about what you are using your computer for (programs, aims, objectives, etc) and then figure out a solution for you (ubuntu, windows, dualboot, whatever...)07:02
PsynoKhi0datroubler: right off the bat, I think the opensource driver doesn't have powersaving in the versin that ships withLucid, no wonder it turns hot07:02
YankDownUnderftab, Um...cuz usplash ain't installed...PLYMOUTH is installed...07:02
Xcellmaybe 10.04 is still 2 broke to handle it.07:03
abadabad00CogitoErgoSam - not sure07:03
datroublerPsynoKhi0 yes but with 9.10 i had no problem with fglrx07:03
_Zappy__What's the point in having a seperate storage partition if in the Software Center you can't say where to install new software to ?07:03
ftabYankDownUnder, how do I fix my boot screen ?07:03
abadabad00CogitoErgoSam - I run paconfig from the commandline but it just opens up a GUI. No way to tell what it is doing behind the scenes...07:03
ftabYankDownUnder, is there utility there for fixing that ?07:03
YankDownUnderftab, If you want, you can remove plymouth (and it's themes) and install usplash and startupmangler all in one go.07:03
CogitoErgoSamabadabad00:  try running it from the command line with the parameter --help07:03
MikaelErikssonHiya folks. Here's my problem. I upgraded the other day from KK to LL. Did it straight from the software update center. Everything went kinda fine, until I got a question about GRUB and which partition it should be installed to. My mouse finger slipped, and I pressed Next, without selecting a partition. Got a message which told me I did bad, but the Back-button didn't work :( The system...07:04
MikaelEriksson...continued to install just fine, but when i rebooted it hung. I get the startup screen with some funky red dots, but it freezes there. What should I do now? Don't really want to install everything from scratch...07:04
YankDownUnderftab, apt-get remove plymouth && apt-get install usplash startupmanager07:04
abadabad00CogitoErgoSam - Good call! Unfortunately it still just opened up the GUI07:04
PsynoKhi0datroubler: did you you do a web upgrade?07:05
ftabYankDownUnder, I would like to keep plymouth, but I need to fix the boot image, where the image is distorted ? and the color depth seems to be very low like 8bit,07:05
CogitoErgoSamabadabad00:  Next up, see if the application has a hidden folder in your home directory for its settings07:05
abadabad00CogitoErgoSam - lemme see what ixquick.com can turn up07:05
UbuntuJeffamabo, did you get it to work?07:05
datroubler PsynoKhi0 yes07:05
PsynoKhi0datroubler: ah :(07:05
abadabad00CogitoErgoSam - k... checking home folder07:05
PsynoKhi0datroubler: do you have a separate /home partition? >.<07:05
Aimmortalserver irc.prison.net07:06
PsynoKhi0datroubler: I mean, did you do a web upgrade from Karmic to Lucid?07:06
YankDownUnderftab, Then you can just install a different plymouth-theme => and also check the settings in /etc/default/grub07:06
YankDownUnderI was lucid before I installed 10.04...been that way for at least 12 years...07:06
datroubler PsynoKhi0 good question what do you mean with it? i have only one partition for ubuntu and the /home folder is on the same partition07:06
CogitoErgoSamabadabad00:  Most of the time user settings and configurations get saved in a hidden folder in your home directory, and most programs check there first for settings.  Following that, the usual alternative location is the application's folder in /etc/07:07
ftabYankDownUnder, when I try to view /etc/default/grub the file seems to be empty. How can I restore that?07:07
PsynoKhi0datroubler: damn07:07
YankDownUnderftab, That is not an image, it's a text file that contains the settings for grub.07:07
datroubler PsynoKhi0 why?07:07
amaboUbuntuJeff: no i didn't - every time i click the file in emerald theme manager it doesn't change a thing07:07
ftabYankDownUnder, yes, I from view I meant there is no content07:07
amabodoes anyone know of a fix?07:07
urkkiWhere can  I find tomboy-folder, can't find it in home folder, even when hidden are shown07:08
UbuntuJeffamabo, are you running compiz atm?07:08
amabovisual effects?07:08
PsynoKhi0datroubler: ok web upgrades in my experience aren't reliable07:08
CogitoErgoSamftab have you tried reinstalling grub?07:08
YankDownUnderftab, Hmmm...and you're running 10.04?07:08
UbuntuJeffamabo, yeah like the cube and all that07:08
ftabYankDownUnder, yes07:08
amaboUbuntuJeff: believe so07:09
ftabCogitoErgoSam, what would that do? and is there any reason for doing that ?07:09
YankDownUnderftab, Are you "root" when you view this file?07:09
datroubler PsynoKhi0 i believe you. did you read my problem in the thread?07:09
ftabYankDownUnder, yes07:09
UbuntuJeffamabo, hit ctrl alt R I think, it should bring up RUN APPLICATION, type in that emerald --replace, see if that shows it then.07:09
AbuMaiaamabo: alt F2 also07:09
YankDownUnderftab, Strange that. It should contain heaps of stuff...like, um, it's 865 bytes long...07:10
CogitoErgoSamftab:  The majority of apps like grub, when installed, run setup scripts that generate default config files like /etc/default/grub.  If its missing, resinstalling might trigger the creation of those files.07:10
PsynoKhi0datroubler: I was wondering if you had /home on a separate partition, or at least if a clean installation of ubuntu might not imply too much work for you07:10
amaboUbuntuJeff: woo woo :) thanks07:10
YankDownUnderftab, Nab a copy of /etc/default/grub from the livecd, copy it to /etc/default/ and see if that resolves the issue with image resolution...07:10
ftabCogitoErgoSam, how do I reinstall it? YankDownUnder would that be better ?07:10
ftabYankDownUnder, I don't have CD ROM :( , I always upgrade from internet07:11
UbuntuJeffamabo, welcome, now if you want it to stay that way permanently, you will need to change the command that controls the window decorations in Compiz config settings manager, just to let you know.07:11
Geoffrey2there are never times I feel more like drinking than when I'm trying to diagnose some problem with Ubuntu.....07:11
YankDownUnderftab, No...it would not be better...it's simpler to copy a single file than to sit through an entire re-installation...07:11
YankDownUnderftab, Well, it's easy enough to grab the file from the source ftp dirs mate.07:11
ftabYankDownUnder, ok let me give it a try07:11
CogitoErgoSamftab:  Replacing the single file would be easier, definitely.  But if that doesn't work, reinstalling might.07:11
YankDownUnderftab, Roger that - going for a smoko and coffee...07:12
CogitoErgoSamftab:  Since if you're missing one file, there might be more missing too.07:12
amaboUbuntuJeff: what do you mean?07:12
PsynoKhi0datroubler: btw can you translate the last error message about the package system?07:12
datroubleryes mom07:12
PsynoKhi0that sounded way weird...07:12
teratomaim running lucid.  my wireless nic rt2570 stopped working.  iwas running lucid beta.  what do i do ?07:12
UbuntuJeffamabo, meaning if you restart or log out and log back in right now, that will be changed at the top, the window buttons and all that, it will be what it was before. If you want it to use the emerald theme from now on I can tell you how to set it to do so if you want.07:12
YankDownUnderCogitoErgoSam, This is true, but he does have things relatively running...so he needs to get a fish, first, then find out if he needs a boat, crew and gear next...07:12
phoenix_srvHello everyone, I got a bit of a question. Last night I upgraded from ubuntu 9.10 to ubuntu 10.04, and at one point, i was asked a few questions regarding installing grub. I opted to install the grub on all disks and partitions (i.e., /dev/sda, /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, etc) - i have windows seven installed on this system, and now, whenever i attempt to boot it, grub just hangs with the little underscore in the top left of the screen. Is there a way I can rem07:13
amaboUbuntuJeff: that'd be great07:13
phoenix_srvthanks07:13
Geoffrey2many, many moons ago, gnome had a file called sessions, and it listed all the applications that would be run every time it was fired up...apparently it no longer exists, as i can't find it...anyone know what I should be looking for?07:13
datroubler PsynoKhi0 "the package system is damaged" "check the package sources (third party) if this is the case deactivate them and do apt-get install -f"07:13
YankDownUnderphoenix_srv, I use a Vista recovery disk to rebuild the boot - then it works fine.07:13
datroubler PsynoKhi0 i already did it07:13
UbuntuJeffamabo, System => Preferences => Compiz Config Settings Manager, scroll down till you see  Window Decoration, open that and you will see something that says Command: /usr/bin/compiz-decorator <== change that to emerald --replace07:14
ZykoticK9Geoffrey2, it's gone.  I don't know of a gui replacement currently.07:14
PsynoKhi0datroubler: ok, do this: go to System > Software sources07:14
AbuMaiaI have a program that *only* runs if I use ./ while in its directory.  It does not run if I call it in terminal with the full path.  Is there any way I can add it to startup programs and have it successfully run?07:14
phoenix_srvYankDownUnder: in reference to your reply, thank you, but as stated above, i haven't created the recovery disk yet, and also, i am not able to boot the vista recovery partition07:14
CogitoErgoSamYankDownUnder:  I concede the point; my perspective in recommending reinstalling is related to the number of people with lucid install probs stemming from incomplete or interrupted installations, and reinstalling a single app like grub still tends to be pretty quick, unlike a full reinstall.07:14
YankDownUnderCogitoErgoSam, You get the beer tonight mate!07:15
ZykoticK9AbuMaia, could you share the whole path?  are there spaces in it's name?07:15
YankDownUnderphoenix_srv, There is a d/l on the net of an ISO that's about 100mb in size - does the Vista boot recovery for ya07:15
abadabad00CogitoErgoSam - no luck on finding the config files, but that may be because it is just using 'normal' pulseaudio bundled utilities. I dug up where I originally got the file: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=759147   Wonder why the changes in pulseaudio config isn't sticking past a restart07:15
phoenix_srvYankDownUnder: is that a free download (legally)? if so, that'd be a great help :) thanks07:15
ururusdoes anyone get paid doing this tech support?07:15
ururusor do anyone do tech support on side of irc ?07:16
AbuMaiaZykoticK9: no spaces.  full path is /home/abumaia/BOINC/boinc --daemon  Using that full path does not work, it only runs when I'm in the BOINC directory and run ./boinc --daemon07:16
PsynoKhi0datroubler: do you have the Software Source window in front of you?07:16
datroubler PsynoKhi0 yes07:16
Geoffrey2ok, so I'm chased my tail back to the starting point, basically07:16

YankDownUnderphoenix_srv, Yes mate - got it a while back - just had to google it a bit and WHAM, it was there (and free)07:17

MikaelErikssonphoenix_srv: I have exactly the same problem...but the opposite. I didn't select any partition (my finger slipped) and now Ubuntu hangs on the start screen. No Vista installation on my system, I just upgraded. I really don't know what to do...07:18
ZykoticK9CogitoErgoSam, affraid that's not correct07:18
muffin2Does anybody run ubuntu guest in sun virtualbox?07:18
_Zappy__Hello !07:18
muffin2I think I found a solution to boot time pause on ubunt lucid when shared folders are in /etc/fstab.07:18
datroublerPsynoKhi0 do you mean this: http://www.abload.de/img/udey45l.png07:18
AbuMaiaCogitoErgoSam: nope, gives me a "no such file or directory" error >_<07:18
phoenix_srvMikaelEriksson: for you, i'd probably recommend just booting up from the live cd, and reinstalling grub from scratch using that07:18
Geoffrey2the immediate question is, since I upgraded ubuntu to 10.04, every bootup has gconf-sanity-check exiting with a status 256...it was suggested I simply remove that from the Startup Applications, but it doesn't even show up on the list of startup applications07:19
phoenix_srvthat should fix your problem07:19
CogitoErgoSamAbumaia:  you could try moving the app to /usr/bin to make it accessible from anywhere07:19
_Zappy__Is it possible to install software from the package manager and tell it to install on another partition then the main one where ubuntu's system lives ?07:19
CogitoErgoSamabumaia:  You'll need to use sudo to cp it there07:19
phoenix_srvand YankDownUnder, i believe i found the updated version of your disk here: http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/07:19

Gypsyfetishcan I update from the 10.04 re lease candidate to the LTS version from the update manager? or is it better to do a fresh install?07:19
muffin2arand : Upstart coders are already on it.07:19
muffin2I just want to provide an impromptu circumvention07:19
ZykoticK9_Zappy__, moving install locations in Linux is Non-Trivial.... ie. very hard to do.  Good luck man.07:19
macoGypsyfetish: if you install updates youre there07:20
MikaelErikssonphoenix_srv: yep, sounds clever. (re)-installing grub is obviously an option on the live cd?07:20
PsynoKhi0datroubler: argh I'm using irssi in xterm, having trouble using URLs :( anyway, try this: change the default server, and reload your package list07:20
CogitoErgoSamabumaia:  or make a symbolic link to it in /usr/bin07:20
Gypsyfetishty Maco07:20
AbuMaiaCogitoErgoSam: I'd rather not.  It contains several files in the middle of being processed, and moving it out of /home renders it vulnerable if I have to do a reinstall07:20
YankDownUnderphoenix_srv, Yeppers - dotssit! Ta!07:20

excalq-homesimple question - does an ubuntu install customise itself to the computer it's being installed on? i.e. would installing it and swapping the disk to a diff. computer matter?07:24

songerhello07:34
songerhow can i remove firefox?07:35
phoenix_srvsonger: in the terminal, type: sudo apt-get remove firefox07:35
CogitoErgoSamSonger:  A number of ways, from both the command line or from gui applications.07:35
nomad77songer: sudo apt-get remove --purge firefox to remove its configs07:35
soreauwhat is the option to show icons in system>administration?07:36
CogitoErgoSamsonger:  those command line options will be the quickest though07:36
ururusCogitoErgoSam: how do we change permissions of a file the command?07:36
ururusi forgot long time not using linux07:36
songeri need to remove everiting07:36
* YankDownUnder thinks maybe apt-get remove firefox && apt-get install microsoft-internet-exploder might work...07:36
phoenix_srvururus: chmod 755 filename07:36
CogitoErgoSamururus:  chmod07:36
aranddatroubler: If you look in those directories /usr/lib/fglrx and /usr/share/ati what is in there?07:37
ururusoh yeah remember now07:37
phoenix_srvobviously substituting the values for whatever octal values you like :P07:37
ururusor chmod +x filename07:37
ururus:)07:37
_Zappy__Trying to install subversion, but I get the following error:07:37
CogitoErgoSamururus:  The numbers use octal representation, but you can use the letters quickly too (ie x for execute, r for read, w for write)07:37
_Zappy__Couldn't find package libxvidcore4-dev07:37
phoenix_srvSurion: its in the gconf editor somewhere07:37
phoenix_srvim just looking it up for you now07:37
_Zappy__How can I fix that ?07:37
ZykoticK9soreau, i believe you could use "gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons --type boolean true" just use the path if you want to use gconf-editor07:38
Geoffrey2YankDownUnder, ok, tried the backup trick...lost a bunch of errors in the errors file, got a whole bunch of new errors, and I'm still getting that exit status 256 on startup07:39
ururusCogitoErgoSam: setting up dsl on ubuntu is fairly easy right? we dont need so much scripts like ppp0 dial up stuff?07:39
phoenix_srvZykoticK9: beat me too it as well P07:39
phoenix_srv:P *07:39

CogitoErgoSam_Zappy_:  I'm assuming you're trying to install video codecs?  Easiest way is to just do the whole restricted extras package from the command line or software center07:39
songerCogitoErgoSam,  i already know but I can; with fire fox07:39
lrc03haahhhhaaa07:39
YankDownUnderGeoffrey2, Have you tried finding out what the "exit status" error means via Google or such?07:39
datroublerarand in /fgrlx: libglx.so.xlibmesa and in /ati http://www.abload.de/img/atizwm6.png07:39
songerCogitoErgoSam,  thanks07:39
_Zappy__Thanks CogitoErgoSam I'll try that07:40
CogitoErgoSam_Zappy_:  From the command line its "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras", or just search the Software Center for "Ubuntu Restricted Extras"07:40
lrc03marssssssssss07:40
lrc03aab g07:40
lrc03kp07:40
songernomad77, says Building dependency tree07:40
lrc03kpp07:40
lrc03iohiui07:40
ururusis ./configure; make; make install or is it | <--07:40
CogitoErgoSam_Zappy_:  And obviously if you're using a different flavor of ubuntu like kubuntu that'd be kubuntu-restricted-extras or whatever07:40
Geoffrey2YankDownUnder, I've tried, problem is information overload, I get 30 different possible explanations, covering five different versions of ubuntu..figuring out which applies to me, that's the fun part07:41
ururustar -zxvf filename.tar.gz07:41
nomad77ururus: generally but read any install/readme files07:41
_Zappy__CogitoErgoSam, Just trying to install subversion07:41
ururusnomad77: what about dsl setup in ubuntu fairly easy or need ppp0 dial up type scripts ?07:42
CogitoErgoSamururus:  What do you mean installing dsl?  If your router/modem is already set up, ubuntu should automatically detect and set up the connection07:42
ururusnomad77: or it just asks to put my localhost IP?07:42
nomad77ururus: should be auto,uses dhclient07:42
songernomad77,  Building dependency tree , Package firefox is not installed, so not removed07:43
G-manwhat is the best type of file system to use with a fresh install of Ubuntu the latest distro07:43
G-man?07:43
YankDownUnderGeoffrey2, Well, the niggly stuff is what makes it all the more fun as a puzzle...as long as you can boot and use, it's all good...but it is kinda strange that...could be from a nonexistent program trying to startup via the init scdripts or in your startup....07:43
nopeG-man: for what use?07:43
nomad77songer: then youre good07:43
__danthemanmy vote goes to ext3 or 407:43
G-manweb browsing, video stream, and mp3's07:43
nopeext4 works nice07:43
nopedesktop then07:43
DanaGhmm, how's butterfs?07:43
DanaGbtrfs.07:43
CogitoErgoSamG-man:  The current newest fs is ext407:43
nopeI run ext4 here07:43
G-mandesktop07:43
red2kicG-man: Whatever suit you well. ext4 is for me. I like new stuffs. :)07:44
__dantheman< ext4, too07:44
nopeDanaG: I wouldnt use btrfs in production07:44
DanaGicantbelieveitsnotbtr07:44
CogitoErgoSamG-man:  Well, newest commonly used one for personal use; not gonna get into server / data warehouse kinds of situations07:44
nopebut for testing, sure07:44
nomad77production i'd use ext3 myself07:44
songerbut firefox still there, nomad7707:44
G-manshould i make the hard drive partitioned or no?07:44
* YankDownUnder prefers ReiserFS...the professional choice of murder suspects! :)07:44
CogitoErgoSamG-man:  Planning on dual booting?07:44
nopeG-man: if you partition it properly, a reinstall would be a lot easier07:44
nomad77songer: you installed firefox,how?07:44
ldezYankDownUnder: hahahahaha07:45
G-manG-man this is on another computer im looking at it right now07:45
nopeYankDownUnder: I`m probably gonna get stoned here, but I actually prefer ZFS :)07:45
aranddatroubler: hmm, if you run apt-get check, does it indicate which packages are broken?07:45
G-mani popped in the Gparted live cd07:45
CogitoErgoSamYankDownUnder:  Although not technically FOSS, Truecrypt is a nice choice for the sensitive stuff regardless of file system :)07:45
