ZykoticK9rahduke, hmw to disable the keyring you need to remove the current one, then reset all your password for networking selecting no password - then agreeing to the "unsafe storage" option.  which does make your system much less secure.  as i origionally said, disabling autologin in the "easy" way00:04
SealedWithAKissDeathMetalDean, I have been playing the PS3 so no I haven't.00:04

rahdukehmw: what do u think i typed into google? How to make assumtions people know nothing about google?00:09
Grizmawehmw, gnome-keyring i think. Dont know about uninstalling it though. You may want to delete ~/gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring, see if that helps first00:09

jribsilvernode: honestly, there's not much point in a rolling release.  You probably have a handful of apps that you like and want the latest version of (for some reason; I won't go into that).  If they are popular you can find ppas for them and if they aren't you can maintain them yourself.  So you could use ubuntu that way00:59

skyriderHello fellows. Recenly I've downloaded DVD ISO images of Lucid from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com and checked their sha256 hash sums - everything is correct. But when I check the authenticity of SHA256SUMS file with gpg - it says file have BAD signature from "Ubuntu CD Image Automatic Signing Key".01:07
skyriderAm I doing something wrong with checking the signature? Or SHA256SUMS.gpg file on ubuntu mirrors really did not match the SHA256SUMS file hosted there? Did anyone except me tried to check the signature?01:07
skyriderWithout checking the signature we can't trust in authenticity of ISO images.01:07
skyriderFull output of sha256sum, wget and gpg commands you can see here: http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/ECyj7zaF01:07
bastid_raZorbenjamintheyon: cairo-dock  possibly.. it has an auto-hide feature plus is a dock for your launchers01:07
Lichtewhat is the command to show where all the files for a package are installed ??01:07
MadWombatif I do sudo rake, I get command not found, I added /var/lib/gems/1.8/bin to root's .bashrc, I removed evn_reset from sudoers01:08
ActionParsnipchrometiger: you may need to copy the data to your HDD to set the executable bit01:08
benjamintheyonActionParsnip: In all honesty, it's an aesthetics thing. I just wanted a single panel to monitor everything in a particular folder, and display an icon for each in the panel, with that panel auto-hiding. I feel bad that you're still looking for me, I'm being picky and I know it. haha01:08
skyriderLichte: "dpkg -L packagename"01:08
benjamintheyonbastid_raZor: I'll look into cairo-dock, thanks01:08
Lichtethanks skyrider01:08
dpratt71I'm trying to run a game under Ubuntu running on VirtualBox; perhaps not surprisingly, I get an error: OpenGL Warning: XGetVisualInfo returned 0 visuals for 9a5a0e001:08
MadWombatI can always do sudo su -, but it seems subversive01:08
ActionParsnipbenjamintheyon: well if its not right you won't install it so makes sense01:08
ActionParsnipMadWombat: use: sudo -i    instead01:08
MadWombatActionParsnip: tried that, same result01:08
ActionParsnipMadWombat: where do the apps get installed to?01:09
dpratt71is there any hope that I could reconfigure something and get it working, or should I just give up?01:09
MadWombatActionParsnip: /var/lib/gems/1.801:09
TrellianMadWombat: it could also be that the program you want to start is not in your current users' $PATH, try running it with the full pathname01:09
MadWombatit is01:09

=== ahmed is now known as Guest58229
benjamintheyonbastid_raZor: Is this for cairo-dock or gnome-panel?01:10
bastid_raZorbenjamintheyon: cairo-dock01:10
TrellianMadWombat: i assume it's also chmod +x ?01:10
ActionParsnipchrometiger: the file is read only so you cannot change the files unfortunately01:10
hmwdpratt71: also don't assume, that everyone has read the text, you are referring to with "someone knows it?". Keep posting your issue every now and then (perhaps something between 5 and 15 minutes) while you try finding a soluition on google.01:11
MadWombatTrellian: yes01:11
benjamintheyonbastid_raZor: Ok will do. One last -- does cairo-dock play nice with gnome/gnome-panel?01:11
ActionParsniphmw: or any other search engine ;)01:11
hmwActionParsnip: oh, i almost forgot, that there are some. my bad.01:12
bastid_raZorbenjamintheyon: yes, it has the ability to replace the bottom panel with some of its plugins also the top if you desire. it is a do-all dock.01:12
chrometigerActionParsnip: got it finally    in terminal  switch user,  then            wine "drag exe from cd into ternimal"     works01:12
ActionParsniphmw: thats why i ALWAYS say websearch. I think the phrase "google it" and suchlike is constrictive and immature01:12
benjamintheyonbastid_raZor: Beautiful. As soon as I get file sharing set up on this thing I'll give it a whirl!01:12
dpratt71hmw: I am a bit confused by your responses01:13

woodyjlwI do not want to dual boot but I have three 250 gig hard drives, one is sata and two are ide, if I unplug the windows 7 on the sata and install ubuntu on the ide and tell the bios to boot from sata first I could still F8 and pick the ide ubuntu to boot to that one when I want to right???01:13
djusticemy xorg.0.log has "EE: Failed to Initilize GLX (NVIDIA compatible driver not found)" <<- and i dont even have an nvidia card... intel. help?01:13
acerimmerdrpratt71: don't forget the ubuntu forum01:13
ActionParsnipchrometiger: then it will need to be ran as root as it will install to /root/.wine and not /home/$USER/.wine01:13
Trellianwoodyjlw: that's correct01:14
hmwdpratt71: sorry, i was just confused about your question "can someome help me with that" and i didnt know, what "that" you were refering to. ;-) also, there is no use in asking ever 10 seconds, people here tend to help, if they can. Welcome to Ubuntu, btw.01:14
geniiwoodyjlw: Much depends on how the bios reports what drives it sees to the operating system01:14
ActionParsnipwoodyjlw: techically all drives are IDE, you mean PATA01:14

benjamintheyonAnyone have a link to a great simple Samba tutorial for sharing between two Ubuntu machines on a LAN? I'm finding a ton that are not relevant01:14
djusticesweb: permissions. check em.01:14
chrometigerActionParsnip:  ah  right,  crap  let me start over lol01:14
woodyjlwTrellian,  I thought so , thanks01:15
geniiwoodyjlw: Unplugging a drive re-arranges the order the bios reports them for instance01:15
djusticedamn borked upgrdes... every time... liek you guys are aiming at me...01:15
swebdjustice, it's a network folder that i can play by dblclick with totem01:15
ActionParsnipwoodyjlw: or you can just disable the drives you want leaving in BIOS. Much easier01:15
Trellianbenjamintheyon: for simple filesharing i would use NFS instead of samba, it is just that much easier to configure01:15
hmwbenjamintheyon: one needs to set a smb password somehow. weird thing. perhaps this helps:
woodyjlwgenii, I know . I would have to reconfigure bios when done01:15
mdgHello!  Anyone here use moc to listen to shoutcast streams?  I just installed streamtuner and it closes when I try to listen to a shoutcast stream - any ideas?01:16
woodyjlwActionParsnip,  yes that too01:16
bastid_raZor!samba > benjamintheyon .. follow the links01:16
ubottubenjamintheyon, please see my private message01:16
benjamintheyonTrellian: That'll be perfect - does it allow for Windows file sharing down the line? That is an eventual goal. If not, I should probably start with Samba?01:16
dpratt71hmw: it was intended as a two-part question: state the circumstances and then ask the question; apologies if I annoyed anyone01:16
benjamintheyonhmw: I'll take a peak at that, thank you.01:16
benjamintheyonbastid_raZor: Thanks!01:16
hmwdpratt71: you didnt annoy me, i was trying to be helpful.01:16
hipitihopin karmic I was running the Zopier Communicator (alsa) SIP client but I found I could not have skype and zoiper running as they would steal each others audio. There is also an OSS version of zoiper, so now that I'm on lucid and about to re-install it which would be recommended ?01:16
Trellianbenjamintheyon: well, yes and no... windows does have support for nfs, but if your ultimate goal is to also use windows clients then i would advice not to use nfs01:16
swebdjustice, any idea ?01:17
ActionParsnipbenjamintheyon: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/samba/+question/80811    has a sample of my smb.conf file, you will need to run: sudo smbpasswd -a $USER     to add a samba account if you are sharing your home folder some. Just paste the snippet in /etc/samba/smb.conf and reboot, you can now access the samba share nice, obviously chamge user names and such as you need01:17
woodyjlwI love 10.04 but still cant get my gaming where I want it with my ati 2600 hd.   the proprietary ati driver still sucks. unless there is a better open source one01:17
woodyjlwI would love to boot MS completely01:17
benjamintheyonTrellian: OK. I do have a windows server I'd eventually like to connect to. But maybe I'll just throw together NFS real quick to get some music on my brothers brand new Ubuntu machine. Thanks!!01:17
benjamintheyonActionParsnip: Hmm that's almost over my head. I'll save that message and review it when I understand. I think I'll start with NFS for the time being. Thanks for the help01:18
ActionParsnipbenjamintheyon: the page pretty much shows how to configure samba :). You will need to install samba too: sudo apt-get install samba01:18

benjamintheyonActionParsnip: Ok you've persuaded me to take the plunge. Samba it is. Hahaha01:19
ActionParsnipsweb: mount it and then tell rhythmnbox to use the mount point folder01:19
dpratt71it may also be worth mentioning that this is an open source game (and compiles under Linux) and I am running a VirtualBox VM with hardware acceleration enabled01:20
woodyjlwis there a better way to configure my ati 2600hd without using the hardware drivers to fetch it?  I still get a lot of screen tearing in WOW01:20
Trellianbenjamintheyon: scp is like copy, but then over the network01:20
dpratt71I should say "3D acceleration enabled"01:20
benjamintheyonTrellian: I see...01:21

swebActionParsnip? how can mount 'smb://vashka-desktop/1tb/'  ?01:21
ActionParsnipbenjamintheyon: whats also cool is if you use the text file config you can ssh over, edit the file in nano / vi etc, restart the service and BAM another share01:21
hipitihopbenjamintheyon, for a longer term and better solution, consider looking at something like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squeezebox_Server01:21

benjamintheyonActionParsnip: In other words remotely add shares? Also real quick if I have a partition called "Storage" mounted, what would the terminal path be to that?01:22

benjamintheyonhipitihop: Hmm...I'll check it out!01:22
Trellianwoodyjlw: from the top of my head you use the '-opengl' switch to start Wow.exe01:22
ActionParsnipbenjamintheyon: indeed, and you wont need silly vnc to do it either ;)01:22

StevenXIt ran all the time, and I had to press a key combination and so if I wanted to run xchat, all I had to do was press that key, and type in xch and it would auto-complete it for me.01:47

k0d3g3arCloudMonkee, do you have the NVidia drivers installed?01:52

gnacvsingh165: no, not yet.01:53

NaryaActionParsnip, ok thank you!02:25
unopCornwall, you could use wicd instead of NM - it allows you to run scripts02:25

dattain system>> preference there is broadcast too but gwibber's not loading02:28
vago_sebsebseb,  yes02:28
sebsebsebvago_: remove the other theme's and it should use that one instead02:28
unopCornwall, I would keep the connection alive perhaps to avoid the inactivity - like pinging a host every set interval02:28
Dark_WolfApparently the system is looking for the script in my home directory02:28
PlughDark_Wolf: Did you mark the script as executable?02:28

unopDark_Wolf,  do check.  echo "$PATH"02:29
markus_I miss a volume control in the panel. where can I find that?02:29
sebsebsebshane2peru_: the graphical boot up that Fedora and Mandriva had before Ubuntu,  unfortuatnly it does not like propritary Nivida or ATI drivers,  well I guess that depends on the driver02:29
unopCornwall, hmm, well - wicd then02:29
vago_sebsebseb,  which one I need to remove? there is no any default theme in synaptic02:30
dattais it that a file is missing or some problem with proxy?02:30
Dark_Wolfunop: Thanks :)02:30
ubuntunewbhow do i go about enabling custom keyboard shortcuts? I cannot assign a key combo to the shortcuts02:30
sebsebsebvago_: search synaptic for  plymouth02:30
shane2peru_sebsebseb, ahh, ok, thanks02:30
unopDark_Wolf, is it? because if i remember correctly, for non-root users ubuntu has a skewed PATH02:30
Dark_WolfIt's /usr/bin02:30
Plughaaron-n-nikki: You can install it using Synaptic02:30
vago_sebsebseb,  I search but there is no something like default theme..02:30
sebsebsebshane2peru_: your not on 10.04 yet?02:30
NaryaActionParsnip, the Adobe Flash Player 64 bit alpha installer is installed02:30
Cornwallunop: I really like networkmanager, though.... :(. Do you not know of a way to run a script on resume? I have found /etc/pm/suspend.d, but that runs a script on both suspend and resume, I believe. My script blocks will suspend from working.02:30
ActionParsnipaaron-n-nikki: sudo find / -name "libflashplayer.so"02:31
sebsebsebvago_: no it won't say default theme, just look to see what thems are installed02:31

ActionParsnipNarya:  sudo find / -name "libflashplayer.so"    what is output? Did you restart firefox after installing it?02:32
sebsebsebvago_: right those are the defaults02:32
ActionParsnipaaron-n-nikki: can use: which rar; which unrar02:32
vago_remove and logo and text?02:32
sebsebsebvago_: text can probably stay, but be sure to remove plymouth-ubuntu-logo if you want the solor theme instead02:32

Trelliancan someone help me debug an upstart issue i'm having where the runlevel is not properly set? it's not because there's no 'lo' entry in /etc/network/interfaces as many launchpad bugs state. The system boots, but stalls halfway during the boot process, if i then ssh into the box the runlevel command returns unknown, manually doing telinit 2 will compleet the boot process02:32

UncleDAlmost done with my upgrade from Karmic->Lucid. Round of applause please?02:33
unopCornwall, you have to check what $1 is in the script - it can be one of  "suspend", "hibernate", "resume" or "thaw" -- so you can base your actions on this condition02:33
dattasorry looks like a bug has already been reported02:33
Henry_BRintel g950 i guess02:33
Cornwallunop: my problem is that my script uses the lynx text browser in the background to log in. When I suspend, I cannot get to that login page because I haven't been timed out yet. I tried setting a timeout for the script, but it still inhibits suspend..02:33

vago_sebsebseb,  but there is no any options to change something..02:55
facugaichSo, I installed 10.04 and now I can't figure out how to add depth to the windows in my rotating cube, I have the feeling those settings have been moved somewhere else...02:55
sebsebsebvago_: indeed it's not that configurable unlike the old version02:55
Dr_Willisvago_:  look for the tool 'gdm2setup' or other unoffical tools.02:55

Henry_BRActionParsnip, here people, free software community, says that gnu/linux should be used... in schools, home, etc... But, I feels like it cause more hating than loving... I feels like first the community should implement a better OS before want people, simple users, using it. I don't know...02:56
sebsebsebDr_Willis: or at least get from Gnome website first, and then be able to do it02:56
Dark_Wolfmanchot: The terminal's going to work the same in GNOME as it would in KDE02:56

markl_ActionParsnip: scanner, i have an HP all in one printer/scanner with an ethernet port.  i'm also a total n00b at scanners.  what is the easiest way to set it up?02:58
Henry_BRActionParsnip, but Ubuntu has many bugs... I'm considering try another system. I don't know. With 9.10 i didn't have problems, but now... 10.04 is fucking stressing me02:58
sebsebsebDr_Willis: I was like bugger GDM 2, i'll just use KDM instead :)02:58
facugaichmc_: Under "Effects" there's Animations, Blur Windows, Fading Windows, Minimize Effect, Water Effect, Windows Decoration and Wobbly Windows02:58
markl_can it scan and dump the files on a samba share or something, or should I configure it via usb02:58
Dr_Willissebsebseb:  i perfer a simple solid color.. so Yes.. I find most of the 'dithered gradient rorshack tests' ugly :)02:58

vago_sebsebseb,  and how I can install another screen?03:01
sebsebsebvago_: as for eye candy  when it comes to Ubuntu/Gnome  and  Kubuntu/KDE,  KDE is well I guess nicer looking by default in most distros, but  it's also more geek to customize than Gnome03:01
Henry_BRActionParsnip, for me it is only more slowly, and things works, splash works, msn works, webcam works, etc... (little things like webcam and msn are keys to conquer people). or... internet banking, for exemple... i have to boot in windows to login in my account. I'd like to remove windows, but... I can't. :\03:01

sebsebsebvago_: how much space did you give Ubuntu?  Hard disk space for Ubuntu really isn't an issue, as long as you didn't give it a totally stupid amount of space.  Linux programs hardly take up much hard disk space unlike Windows.  However since  you probably haven't installed a KDE app before...03:04

mickster04well...it does it by default, so i have misinterpreted your question?03:18
ChromiumChrismickster04: Does it support the two-fingered scrolling?03:19
sebsebsebmknarr: yes you can use the short03:19
mickster04ChromiumChris: yes that should be default03:19
mickster04ChromiumChris: altho on lucid mayb not03:19
SingAlongmickster04: so do i just hookup the other monitor and it works?03:19
mickster04ChromiumChris: but easy to fix03:19
mknarrsebsebseb, kool thx03:19
sebsebsebmknarr: also package kubuntu-desktop-manager won't exist or whatever,  I think it's just known as KDM, but maybe not03:19
mickster04SingAlong: should do03:19
GrexeoI have just installed Ubuntu server (lucid) and SSH isn't starting automatically. How do I fix this?03:19
theGmanWould someone tell me what app I use to start/stop services as well as difining which ones are automagically started at bootup?03:19

camel_I've got this issue w/ 10.04 - I can't play many videos on youtube b/c hitting the play button does nothing, some work, some don't ... i can right click on a video if it's youtube and hit 'watch on youtube' and that works b/c it autostarts .. any ideas?03:19

DavidJHeinrichcan server mobos take desktop RAM if it is of the same speed rating?03:20
ActionParsnipGrexeo: is openssh-server installed?03:20

sebsebsebmknarr: why sending me a notice?03:21
mickster04melrokz: no not really03:21
sebsebsebmknarr: instead of standard message03:22
mickster04melrokz: what are you trying to do?03:22
PatrinstarActionParsnip, interestingly enough, if i run `killall gnome-panel' in a terminal, it appears to restart the process and then the panel shows up03:22
melrokzi need to remove 2 lines - 'memtest 86' and 'windows xp'03:22
theGmanSo, I still haven't any idea what to use to start/stop services or what to use to define ones to automatically start when booting?03:22

When I cd ~/bin, touch TEST, mv TEST .., ls .., i see the test file alongside with the files of /media/something/bin. If I the try to mv ../TEST .  i cannot, because it accesses the home directory (test it with mv ../FileInHome .). This is somewhat strange, might it be a bug? Is this wanted? Why?04:11

erossno, just a weather, calendar, volume control panel applet and couple of launchers on panel04:15
ieynrhmw: i think I follow what you're saying. maybe the way to consider it is that your ~/bin area is still within the context of your home area, as much as possible, since you dropped the symlink in place there. but the moment you move a file *out* of that area, it sort of gets out of dodge, and gets kicked out. for all other intents and purposes you're still operating under your little virtual...04:15

scotHey guys, I formatted my /home hard-disk during 10.04 installation. I don't think I checked format, but whatever....it's ext3, and I chose to mount it ext4 at installation. What's the best tool to unformat a partition with?04:17
ieynrhmw: the only thing I can suggest is that something like zsh (z shell) might have a clever override or something simple you can do to tweak or override that behavior. i have a feeling it will take a long time to find, however. right maybe zsh has different behavior, it's worth a try04:17
UbuntuJeffIdleOne, it should give you a volume icon to, well it does for me.04:18
Nullifi3dscot: you cant "unformat" a partition04:18
UbuntuJeffIdleOne, well a volume icon and the enevelope04:18

ubottugparted is a !GTK/!Gnome !GUI partitioning program. Type « sudo apt-get install gparted » in a console to install it - A GParted "live" CD is available at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php04:29

eazel7funny, ubuntu is lagging in mono versions04:32
tonyyarussoeazel7: Three words:  "Time based releases"04:32
UbuntuJeffmagn3ts, I would go through synaptic and uninstall anything nvidia graphics related that is installed and set it for COMPLETE removal, that should remove the config files and all that. Reboot should bring you back to simple graphics. then install it again, maybe a config file is staying there from your upgrade and its causing a problem.04:33
KingTutwhat exactly is ubuntu?04:33

ridz16hmw: lol04:33
ridz16hey how do I do the reply in red msg thingie04:34
UbuntuJeffmagn3ts, lol dang it. only other guess I have is try installing the one from Nvidia's website itself. That is the one I am using after having trouble with the one from the Hardware Drivers.04:34

magn3tsUbuntuJeff, I think I'm going to disable the nvidia vdpau repo, try that, if that doesn't work, I'm going to do what you suggested and instlal it from nvidia, though when I do that I always have to Ctrl+Alt+F7 to get to X when my PC boots. :( oh well04:34
xevinhello anybody knows how we can change the query area font size for mysql query browser?04:35
ridz16tony it didnt work04:35
tonyyarussoeazel7: Not really, no.  Occasionally a few things will be backported, but usually those are relatively small things to avoid breaking other stuff.04:35
UbuntuJeffmagn3ts, yeah you have to install it from X without a graphical running. hopefully it works for ya.04:35
tonyyarussor3m: Yes.04:35
r3mtonyyarusso thanks, how non lts version are called?04:35
acerimmerr3m: update manager should give you the option to upgrade the distro to 10.0404:36
tonyyarussoridz16: It will only be red on the client of the person you're talking to.  For instance, on my client I actually see the beginning of the line in yellow.04:36
Loshkiridz16: type 'tony' then hit tab for autocompletion. The name has to be exact...04:36
magn3tsUbuntuJeff, no, I just meant that the driver causes Ubuntu to stay on TTY1 when it boots rather than switching to tty7 which X runs on... it's strange and it only happens after manually installing the nvidia driver. the repo versions never do that to me04:36
eazel7tonyyarusso: I'm not asking for 'official' packages, just updated one04:36
SmehSo, I am attempting to install 10.04 server and have the fakeraid bug.  I've managed to get partman to complete successfully in the installer switching to CLI and renaming the partitions but once complete, it does not boot.

Loshkieazel7: http://www.mono-project.com/DistroPackages/Ubuntu says "...Mono is considered a "core framework" in Ubuntu, meaning it has many applications depending upon it (roughly 40 applications). Due to this, the chance of one of those applications breaking due to unexpected changes in their underlying framework is considered too high to risk an update....". (So it might be hard, if not impossible, to get updates)...04:41
arandeazel7: Lucid comes with  2.4.4~svn151842-1ubuntu4   isn't that fairly recent no?04:41

red2kicsekyourbox: Well, did you?04:42
sekyourboxred2kic, did i what?04:42
red2kicsekyourbox: rm!04:42
jabiraliUbuntuJeff, not really. I find openbox to be more flexible; it is easy to e.g. make firefox automatically open in fullscreen on desktop #2, which I use in order to dedicate my workspaces to different tasks (browsing, coding, reading, etc) and set some standard setting for e.g. all Wine-apps. Other than that, it seems to be faster than metacity on older machines - but if your machine is that old, perhaps running gnome isn't the best idea04:43
eazel7arand: considering the progress done in the last year with mono, I want desperately to move to the 2.6.x versions04:43
matthew123how can I access ubuntu files from xp in virtual box I've already selected the folder but I can't find it in my virtual machine04:43
sekyourboxred2kic, no04:43
eazel7arand: also, mono is a virtual machine, it's rare if they break a running app04:43
sekyourboxtonyyaruzzo, no luck04:43
arandeazel7: Since Debian is still on 2.4, so I reckon that would be the firts hurdle...04:44
tonyyarussosekyourbox: bother.  I think that was my only guess...04:44
UbuntuJeffjabirali, my machine is 2gb ram, nvidia 8400 512mb graphics card, and a core 2 duo. I just don't like compiz all that much and figure see whats the best way to get even more speed out of my machine. lol04:44

ollieone included GRUB04:46
ollieHad previous trouble installing grub to disk after I upgraded to 10.0404:46
UbuntuJeffmicky212, sudo apt-get remove transmission-gtk?04:46
red2kicIdleOne: Fine. You want to argue. Just do "aptitude show ubuntu-desktop | grep media" It's in the repo and I know you probably didn't use ubuntu-desktop. :)04:46
ollieTried to install GRUB again but it failed04:46
arandeazel7: mono-project.com has this very quote on their page: " Mono is considered a "core framework" in Ubuntu, meaning it has many applications depending upon it (roughly 40 applications). Due to this, the chance of one of those applications breaking due to unexpected changes in their underlying framework is considered too high to risk an update.04:47
FluffyMasterHey guys, I am trying to install Ubuntu on my netbook (while keeping windows on it) but when i go to install it, the installer doesnt recognize any partitions.  How do i fix this?04:47

jabiraliUbuntuJeff, I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop and haven't really set it up much, so it runs gnome with metacity (haven't installed proprietary nvidia drivers yet). My laptop runs archlinux, with standalone openbox.04:47
IdleOnered2kic: i don't see where I was arguing when I said thank you04:47
ollieI'm currently 100% command line04:47
jabiraliUbuntuJeff, on my desktop computer right now :)04:47
Smehnoone interested / able to assist with 10.04 fakeraid bug workaround assistance then I take it? :)04:47
acerimmerollie: any error msgs?04:47
micky212UbuntuJeff : Thanks04:47
ollieIt said it could recognize my Logitech Wireless receiver04:47
olliepresumably for my mouse04:47
UbuntuJeffjabirali, sorry a lot of questions, will you stay on metacity or openbox? on your desktop.04:47
ollieRemoving that did nothing04:47
arandeazel7: And I assume that that makes it tricky to simply slap up packages for a new version.04:48
eazel7arand: I'm sure they're quoting ubuntu04:48
red2kicollie: Keep everything in one line. Plz.04:48
arandeazel7: Possibly..04:48

FluffyMastertonyyarusso:says "no operating system on hard drive"04:50
shazbotmcnastytonyyarusso, well actually I guess the question is, I need to share this file via torrent, and I don't want it to be available to everyone, just the people I give it to - I can just do this with transmission and don't need a tracker...right?04:50
ollie@acerimmer any advice?04:50

jabiraliLoshki, for each application, the <decor>-tags specify if the window should be decorated, the <x> and <y> specify where the window should spawn, <fullscreen> obviously specifies if it should be fullscreen, and <desktop> specifies which desktop it should spawn on (use "all" to let it be on all desktops)04:54

jabiraliLoshki, use the command "xprop|grep WM_CLASS" to get the window class to use in the <application>-tag04:54
Loshkijabirali: I like it better than the configs I've seen for other window managers, some of which predate XML04:54
tonyyarussoFluffyMaster: It's a little bit of a shot in the dark, but I'd start with running Windows chkdsk on the Windows install.  You can still boot Windows, yes?04:54
FluffyMastertonyyarusso: i can still boot windows fine, and all partitions are marked as healthy in disk management04:55
tonyyarussoshazbotmcnasty: ok, that's easier.  Wikipedia has three or four listed on the "Tracker" section of the BitTorrent page I believe.04:55

I tried reinstalling grub from rescue cd and I get an error warning about blacklists and using --force.05:04
undecimfourcolors: No, i mean not the same as chrome the browser. Chromium is the open source browser than chrome is based on. Chrome is the closed-source browser that Google built based on chromium. Chrome OS is a cloud OS in development by Google.05:04

ubottuTheravadan: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.05:10
jef91Howdy all - so just updated my system to the .22 kernel05:10
undecimFluffyMaster: Unfortunately, Wubi has a lot of boot problems and the more advanced Ubuntu users seldom have experience with it and therefor can't help you much with it. When it works, it's good for testing out Ubuntu, but you should do a normal install of Ubuntu if you want it to be reliable.05:10

undecimFluffyMaster: ]I think the Wubi error and the problem with real installs is caused by the same problem.05:21
UbuntuJeffjabirali, lol only problem I have is I can't figure out how to get my gnome panel to go back to the same look it had in gnome, instead of this weird grey color. lol05:21
Loshkiisurit: to keep the noise down in a very busy channel...05:21
cybertaur1so right now what happens is that when i select the windows 7 option ("Windows 7 (load) (on /dev/sda1)"), it brings me right back to the same menu05:21
tumenjargalProblem is cd rom not mount05:21
jew__should i get virtual box and mess around?05:21
undecimFluffyMaster: Can you boot to a live CD, open a terminal, and run "sudo fdisk -l" and give me a pastebin of the output?05:22
acerimmercybertaur1: can you get the grub terminal?05:22
Smehi'm going to guess cybertaur1 had a working multiboot until he installed 10.04 :]05:22
Jordan_Ucybertaur1: Can you pastebin the output of "debconf-show grub-pc"?05:22
cybertaur1immediately before this, i was getting a different error when selecting windows 7: "grub_getcharwidth not found"05:22
cybertaur1Smeh: 100% correct :D05:22
jabiraliUbuntuJeff, I found it. The program is called "gmrun", it is in the repos.05:22
FluffyMasterundecim: yeah, give me a second to boot it up05:22
cybertaur1acerimmer: i'm something of a newb... i can boot up ubuntu but not windows. do i have to be logged in to do what you or Jordan_U describe?05:22
jabiraliUbuntuJeff, run "gnome-settings-daemon &" in the end of your autostart.sh ;)05:22
acerimmercybertaur1: wait 105:23
tumenjargallet me know cd format?05:23
AndroidHey there ...05:23
cybertaur1oh, for what it's worth, i "fixed" the grub_getcharwidth problem with the command `grub-install /dev/sda`05:23
UbuntuJeffjabirali, that worked lol thanks man05:23
cybertaur1it's possible i typed `grub-install /dev/sda1` but i'm not sure05:23

pawan_tejwaniwalhter: yes sir I want to install Ubuntu actually but dont want to remove the partitioning system (NTFS) for windows ,05:38

pawan_tejwani@acerimmer: and @walhter: its because Fedora has that option while installing it on system that on which partition you want to install and which disk will it boot from , But ubuntu has just two options i.e. it just can install on complete HDD or it makes my system dual boot .05:42
jabiraliUbuntuJeff, that one looks correct. You clicked "Reconfigure" or something like that in the openbox menu, tried running mplayer again and it still doesn't open on desktop 2?05:42

shishiredo the ubottu bots have http access?  i.e, can they link bug reports given a bug number in launchpad?05:47
theGmanpawan_tejwani: The number of HD has nothing to do with it. You will need a way to select which os to boot to, ie a grub menu or something.Until yesterday my main os was fedora 1205:47

theGmanpawan_tejwani: I understand the confusion. The sys is STILL dual or tri booting, regardless of how many hd's there are.05:47
Jordan_Upawan_tejwani: Making it dual boot simply means that the grub menu will have options to boot the other OSs, you can tell grub not to create such menu entries.05:48
vuxpyrasame problem tstavrop05:48
tyler-jamesi believe the live cd has wireless drivers on board05:48
theGmanpawan_tejwani: Meaning, it's not a single os sys.05:48
shishireI can always link the URL, but it's generally better if it gets some context too.05:48
tyler-jamesso i think if you pop it it then select it in the software sources, you could load it off there05:48

theGmanpawan_tejwani: However, you will have to create the partitions manually so you can specify which hd it gets installed to. (I've been doing this plenty over the last two days)05:49

XgatesI don't have usplash installed only Plymouth on a custom install with only LXDE and I'm trying to get it so that I can just see the console booting in framebuffer, I've tried a few things, but can't seem to get any to work where the console text booting up will run at like 1024x768, would anyone know to do this in Lucid?05:59
undecimFluffyMaster: I have no idea. Clearly the partitions are available to fdisk, which means Linux can see them, but GParted (which I assume is also used by the installer) can't see them. It makes no sense to me.06:00
acerimmerChookie: ok, during install, after you've set up your partitions, selected user account names and your time zone, JUST BEFORE things start writing, you get a final screen showing what you've selected.  IN the lower right of the screen is "advanced options"  Within that is a go/no go install bootloader or select WHERE bootloader goes.  DON'T install bootloader if you don't want it.  HOWEVER<...06:00

rootlinuxusrshould be, you don't need an internet connection for cd06:06
ubottuPackage lwiod does not exist in lucid06:06
theadminmianosm: Yes, you can install it, unsure what's a "SC1425", but normally you would not need to use networking during install06:06
mianosmrootlinuxusr: I'm getting stuck at the "choose your mirror" portion.06:07
mianosmEven after choosing to setup my (static) network later, it still lets me know that it can't touch any of the mirror archives.06:07

jabiraliUbuntuJeff, I'm from eastern norway so I'm not really used to this unstable weather yet lol :P06:07
UbuntuJeffjabirali, I feel your pain06:07
theadminmianosm: I always installed without networks. I just choose a location, then it complains that it can't connect to apt mirrors or some stuff like that, then it goes on installing normally, just have to apt-get update after installing06:08
anon^_^jabirali checkinstall works as it should when not using sudo command as prefix06:08
jabiralianon^_^, great :)06:08
anon^_^problem is there's no way to tell if the commands follow work06:08
mianosmit keeps kicking me back to the selection screen. :( theadmin06:08
theadminmianosm: hm.06:08

mianosmgo back and continue are definitely the choices, but continue kicks me back06:08
PCUh how do you dual boot with 2 hdd?06:08
theadminmianosm: Maybe Lucid install procedure is different a bit... is there any kind of "skip"?06:09
PCxp and ubuntu06:09
theadminPC: Install XP on one, install Ubuntu on another?06:09
mianosmNo, just <go back> and <continue>06:09
mianosmboth seem to have the same effect.06:09
jabiralianon^_^, if it is successful, it will create a .deb package in your working directory. IIRC, the .deb is basically a .tar.gz-file, so you can try to look inside it to see if the correct files are there.06:10

jabiralianon^_^, if the package is how it should be, you can install it with "sudo dpkg -i" or double-clicking graphically06:10
anon^_^it doesn't get that far jabirali.  checkinstall attempts install first, if it fails it cleans up and exits06:10
anon^_^a deb normally is created after install06:11

macogreezmunkey: if thats part of your usecase, i suggest setting the directory to be setgid (chmod g+s) and putting you and the other users into the same group, setting the dir's group as that one, and setting owner & group permissions to match06:27

greezmunkeymaco: I think I see, that would preserve individual users file permissions, like in a shared directory??06:29

macogreezmunkey: yeah thatd be a shared directory. the creator would always be listed as the owner, but if you make it setgid & give group rwx permisions they can all operate on the files equally06:30
karma_policeubuntu and old nvidia do not coincide06:30

undecimscunizi: I've managed to isntall the live environment to the hard drive with Unetbootin and boot into it by installing syslinux manually (and botching the DOS bootloader, but grub should eventually replace that), but the installer won't install, because no matter what I do, the isntaller thinks it has to commit partition table changes, even though I already have all the partitions and filesystems set up before installation.07:06
pepeehi people. I installed a newer kernel just for testing, and indeed resolved my problem (support for WEP-shared key on ath9k)07:07
scuniziundecim: undecim are you using the manual partitioning section of the install or automatic?  even with manual you need to tell the partitioner assign your precreated partitions to the appropriate mount points.. ie / and /home and /swap07:07

undecimscunizi: Yes. I used partition wizard to resize all the partitions beforehand and setup a FAT32 for unetbootin/shared between Windows and Ubuntu, a swap partition and a root partition, and used the live environment to set up all the filesystems in advance. I went to the manual partitioning (was forced there actually) and just set mount points (no resize, no formatting) but on the last step it says it can't install because it has to commi07:10
undecimt partition table changes and can't do it because /cdrom is mounted there.07:10

XgatesJordan_U: so would I add to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=" ro quiet splash radeon.modeset=1 video=radeonfb:1024x768-60 fbdev" ?08:12
stanman246err.. intel i think, it's a laptop08:12
Galstanman246: ok, I had the same problem with my ati, but the fix only works for ati... sorry08:13
stanman246what did you do?08:13
XgatesJordan_U: I've been trying to also use GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1024x768 with no success08:14
Jordan_UXgates: The video=radeonfb:1024x768-60 fbdev shouldn't be necessary (but then again KMS should also be working by default in 10.04)08:14
Jordan_UXgates: Ubuntu's kernel doesn't honor the video mode passed to it by the bootloader, for whatever reason.08:14
e-frameHi, is there any virtualbox with usb support for lucid ?08:15
Xgateswell this thing doesn't seem to like FB for my ati chip then, or I'm not setting things correct then08:15
XgatesJordan_U: so far all I'm doing is running GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1024x768 & GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768 and then I 'blacklisted vga16fb' and then tried loading vesafb to /etc/modules, that's it08:16
Aciiddid anyone elses MPD broke upon upgrading to Lucid08:16
Jordan_UXgates: If radeon KMS doesn't work, and 1024x768 is supported by vesa on your machine, then uvesafb should work (it's just nicer to use native drivers when possible)08:16
Jordan_UXgates: Does the grub menu show up in 1024x768?08:17
Xgatesuvesafb, that's the same as vesafb?08:17
XgatesJordan_U: yeah grub shows up in 1024x76808:17

hellphyre<---  issues08:20
stanman246was just wondering what you did, maybe i could learn from it08:20
XgatesJordan_U: since I did a custom install with only LXDE all that's installed is just plymouth, but not any splash stuff, so after grub loads the screen goes blank then I'll get some console text, not sure why it's not just booting straight to verbose instead of to a blank screen first, like it's trying to load something, maybe plymouth trying to load a splash08:20
greezmunkeyGal, can you elaborate on your ati fix? Link?08:20
LuckySMackhow do i fix the $PATH when something is showing up 20+ times when i only have it once in my bashrc file? i have the same effect when i remove the path from $PATH as well08:21
XgatesJordan_U: that video=uvesafb:2560x1600-60 is just something I posted, I'd make it for my box instead ----> video=uvesafb:1024x768-6008:21

ubottutoastedmilk: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo08:25

ph8morning all, i've just upgraded my main desktop to lucid after several successful upgrades on my laptops and others. This system is a three screen one, powered by two nvidia cards - i have the latest (current) nvidia drivers and had no problems with my config under karmic. All looks good now apart from when I use my far left screen the mouse goes 'crazy' (starts jumping around seemingly randomly) and once that starts happening all commands are non responsive an08:26
ph8d eventually restart X, I end up back at the login screen - any idea where i should be looking? I can use the right hand side two screens fine08:26
