arooni-mobilehelp!  upgraded to 10.04 and now i see NO TITLEBARS on my desktop (w/ nvidia graphics).  tried http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1477151 with no avail.  also tried adding the RGBXviauals line to /etc/X11/xorg.conf00:00
arooni-mobileubuntu is pretty much useless without titlebars00:00
simarSlart, i have added you to my friends list so i will ask you something when i'm stuck ... i mean when you will be free ..00:00
arooni-mobilethis is with the visual effects turned on00:00
iWaldoNE_Home: It will get to the grub menu, stop responding, then the computer will restart. It will do this once or twice, then grub will just give me an "out of range pointer" error00:00
Ken8521arooni-mobile, are they there when visual effects are off?00:01
magikHalitech: I have seen it in other conky setups...00:01
arooni-mobileKen8521, they are when visual effects are on00:01
LoganSkytowerKen8521, yeah, I know that. I just don't like it as much :>00:01
kamil_oh i don't say, this xubuntu is 9.10 karmic00:01
Ken8521oh ok.00:01
Halitechmagik, so have I but never tried it00:01
arooni-mobileKen8521, i mean i get NO titlebars with visual effects on;  i get titlebars with visual effects off00:01
NE_HomeiWaldo: im asuming its grub2. Have you tried to install grub 1 ?00:01
Ken8521arooni-mobile, which nvidia driver are you using?00:01
LoganSkytowerKen8521, Thanks for thinking along :)00:01
magikHalitech: I'll try and get it from another conky script then. Cheers =]00:01
LoganSkytowerGood luck everyone!00:01
Ken8521:000:01
LoganSkytowerexit00:01
iWaldoNE_Home: Nope. How would I do that?00:01
s3acan some tell me what the name of the package is to have a mac-like bottom in gnome please?00:02
Piccolo48Ok, the keyword being ethernet,  Ethernet Controlloer, Realtek semiconductor co Ltd.  PCI express fast thernet controller00:02
* iWaldo has forgotten everything he used to know00:02
arooni-mobileKen8521, "nvidia"00:02
linxehs3a: "buy a mac"00:02
Ken8521arooni-mobile, .. ok  did you download it from Nvidia's site, or are you using the driver in the restricted driver mgr?00:02
Halitechmagik, there might be something here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=28186500:02
linxehs3a: I'm guessing "dock" though00:02
s3ai don't want a mac, i just want that package, i fogot what's it's called00:02
chalcednyActionParsnip, it's the little things.. how do i save in gedit with no mouse? (i tried it in vim and couldn't get it to escape, to let me :ws .. so tried what you said, i never use gedit much.)00:02
NE_HomeiWaldo: i think it's a package called grub legacy. let me see00:02
Ken8521s3a, probably either cairo-dock, or awn00:03
Slarts3a: awn or cairo-dock00:03
=== yaxomoxay is now known as eaccenti
arooni-mobileKen8521, i think from one poing i downloaded it from restricted driver manager;  but didnt do that to upgrade to ubuntu 10.0400:03
eaccentihello00:03
ActionParsnipkamil_: there is a sample xorg.conf you can use here: http://pastebin.com/cHd1SmrH00:03
brickyActionParsnip: thanks those settings are awesome00:03
Dizkonnekteds3a, your looking for a dock, open synaptic and do a search for dock or google ubuntu dock00:03
Slarts3a: they are both easy to configure (comes with a small gui-configure-dialog thing)00:03
ActionParsnipkamil_: you can use: gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf   to get write access00:03
Dizkonnekteds3a, you might also try youtube for some goof tutorials ;)00:03
chalcednyheh ctrl - s ..00:03
Dizkonnekted*good00:03
ActionParsnipchalcedny: ALT+F  then use cursor00:04
Ken8521arooni-mobile, so did you downlaod a driver from nvidia, or did you use the restricted driver manager? that last sentence made no sense00:04
eaccentiwhat's the main difference between bugsquad and ubuntu testing?00:04

iWaldoNE_Not terribly so, but not super new00:05
iWaldo*NE_Home00:06
kamil_I read on other forums, because people with strongest cpu like core 2 duo has this same problem. why xorg takes so many cpu ?00:06
tripelbI did sudo apt-get remove vuze and it's still there. (it liked mmy password, I said y to yes and it will free up space. It finished. I open the torren and there are leftover parts of vuze that start --- theus transmission does not start.00:06
Jordan_UiWaldo: Have you tried booting with super grub2 disk?00:06
Ken8521Piccolo48, that should be reasonably easy to get working...00:06
iWaldoJordan_U: Nope00:06
ActionParsnipkamil_: your GPU isn't being used00:06
kamil_oh...00:06
Piccolo48Its very easy in windows, but for some reason it doesnt work in linux....so now what?00:06
Piccolo48Linux doesnt even detect it00:07
n8wanyone usin s2disk for hibernation?00:07
ActionParsnipPiccolo48: the guide i gave will let you install the driver for the broadcom00:07
Piccolo48ah00:07
kamil_ok so when I open a xorg.conf what I must to do ?00:07
Ken8521Piccolo48, follow the link ActionParsnip gave you, it has instructions for doing it w/o internet access00:07
Dizkonnektedkamil_, are you using an ATi radeon card?00:07
arimmerActionParsnip: send that url again plz?00:07

magikHalitech: I could just put my IP in manually.00:08
chalcednyActionParsnip, i think i messed up. you told me to alt f-2 first. i was already in a terminal so .. i didnt do that step. alt-f2 just now, opened a Run Application window. is it useful? i still don't have a cursor. eek?00:08
iWaldoNE_Home: tried dpkg, grub-legacy is listed00:08
Stormx2Hi all. Could someone recommend a good ubuntu-supported internal WiFi card for my desktop tower (PCI stuff, etc)00:08
ActionParsnipchalcedny: if you have a terminal you can launch commands from there directly, alt+f2 isn't needed ;)00:09
Halitechmagik, that would work but if by chance it changes...00:09

magikHalitech: My ip hasn't changed for about 3 years now. And i can always look it up again.00:09
chalcednyActionParsnip, yes, that's what i thought.. so i didn't do alt f2 then. but now i have a gedit and run applications.. what next, please?00:09
Halitechmagik, okay00:10
NE_HomeiWaldo: i was mistaken there. That looks like documentation. the status of "grub" should be 'un' while the status of grub-pc is 'ii'.  Correct?00:10
ActionParsnipchalcedny: gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub00:11
Ken8521Piccolo48, did you install from a CD?00:11
iWaldoNE_Home: Correct00:11
chalcednyActionParsnip, yes i did that.00:11
NE_HomeiWaldo: you are on another machine ?00:11
Piccolo48Ah, sorry, that was a lot to write down.  Anyway, I used like WBUI or something00:12
Piccolo48Or however you install it from windows00:12
ActionParsnipchalcedny: make the line be: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i8024.reset"  save the new file and reboot, should be ok00:12
Ken8521ugh...00:12
Jordan_UiWaldo: Super grub2 disk will almost certainly let you boot. And it's generally easier to fix grub from a booted system as well.00:12
kamil_ekhmm... i can't open a xorg.conf00:12
Ken8521Piccolo48, did you use that from a CD?00:12
iWaldoNE_Home: I'm on my macbook,  but running a live CD on the broken machine00:12
octaviosudo Xorg -configure give's me this error http://pastebin.com/Uu4kqfhC . Is there a method to get the xorg.conf from ubuntu 9.04 or 9.10 via livecd?00:12
arooni-mobilehelp!  upgraded to 10.04 and now i see NO TITLEBARS on my desktop (w/ nvidia graphics).  tried http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1477151 with no avail.  also tried adding the RGBXviauals line to /etc/X11/xorg.conf   .. neither worked.  (this happens only when visual effects are turned on)00:13
Piccolo48Mmm, no.  I think I just ran it and installed it from windows without writing it on a CD.  I think I had trouble writing it on the CD and thus did that instead00:13
iWaldoJordan_U: Checked it out, gonna try it as my next thing00:13
oneirosFadeAh, hey - problem where on plugging/unplugging while the netbook is running (10.04 atm) will cause it to suspend, then re-suspend on wakeup, etc.  Not sure what to make of this ~ Google hasn't helped.00:13
chalcednyi don't want to reboot... arrgh!00:13
Ken8521Piccolo48, you may be in for all sorts of fun trying to do this then, you need a CD to do that.00:13
Halitechmagik, this works, just did it on mine http://forums.opensuse.org/archives/sf-archives/archives-tips-tricks-tweaks/334474-howto-have-conky-displaying-your-internet-ip.html00:14
cyborgsmurfHi! Can anyone help me, I have this question about partition lock...00:14
Piccolo48I dont think so.  I'll need a CD to downlaod the files needed but I wont need to downalod all of linux00:14
NE_HomeiWaldo: i see. So you mount your ubuntu install partition with the live-cd. We will need to run some commands to remove grub-pc and install grub00:14
Jordan_Uoctavio: Using an Xorg.conf from Xorg -configure is basically the same as using none at all, since Xorg now does auto detection at runtime. 9.10 and up (possibly 9.04 also) use no xorg.conf by default, and there's only been a very minimal one for longer than that.00:14
Piccolo48Well, we'll see00:14
magikHalitech: I'll do it tommorow. Going to bed in a min. Thanks a lot though =]00:15
Ken8521Piccolo48, ...ok. :)00:15

magiklokaa is that you?00:16
magikloka123?00:16
Piccolo48Yesterday i thought I was superhuman so its good to need help like a weenie00:16
iWaldoNE_Home: I'll try the super grub disk first00:16
Ken8521Piccolo48, probably longer than that.. good luck..00:16
chalcednyPiccolo48, you're doing a hard thing.. take credit :)00:16
cyborgsmurf-magik- good that 10.04 works for some... I had to delete mine and go back to 9.10 (USB issues... long story)00:16
NE_HomeiWaldo: ok. I'd blame your BIOS in that machine where you have problems though00:17
kamil_i haven't xorg.conf00:17
cyborgsmurfokay. There are keys in gparted and I can't resize nor unmount. How do I resize them?00:17
iWaldoNE_Home: I'd thought about the BIOS, but it loads the live CD fine. Not 100% sure if that means anything, though00:17
beartatoI am using ubuntu 9.10 with home folder encryption and everything is working fine. I am just wondering why the ecryptfs kernel module doesn't seem to be loaded? 'modinfo ecryptfs' returns 'ERROR: modinfo: could not find module ecryptfs'. How can this work without the kernel module?00:18
octavioJordan_U so if i dont find the xorg.conf in 9.10 or 9.04, it's possible that I find it?00:18
Piccolo48meh, l think youre right I'll have to install ubuntu all over again in order to access bcmwl kernel source package00:18
octavioi mean because in these versions the resolutions works perfectly00:18
tripelbmy torrents used to work fine. Now I keep getting permission denied on where I aim to put them00:18
Jordan_Uoctavio: I don't understand your question.00:18
Ken8521Piccolo48, no00:19
magikAnyone wanna see my sexy desktop?00:19
NE_HomeiWaldo: id think more a confusion of how and where the bios knows where the hard disk boot sectors are, and how and where thus passes control to a bootloader, grub in our case00:19
NE_HomeiWaldo: another thing, where did you install grub ?00:19
Ken8521Piccolo48, you won't have to install all over again, ou need to dwnload and burn a live CD, and then you *should* be able to follow those directions on your wubi instal00:19
NE_HomeiWaldo: mbr ?00:19
iWaldoNE_Home: Maybe I should try resetting the BIOS, then?00:19
octavioThe resolutions works on 9.0400:19
Piccolo48Ah, makes sense.00:19
Piccolo48lol00:19
kamil_who can tell me why i don'y have xorg.conf in my xubuntu and why cpu usage is that high (about 100%)00:19
Piccolo48Just install linux on the CD and it should read it anyway00:19
octavioit possible to get them form livecd?00:19
iWaldoNE_Home: Honestly, wherever the Ubuntu CD installs it by default00:19
NE_HomeiWaldo: no, don't go so far yet. This bios thing is still a speculation :)00:20
Piccolo48LOL!!!!11100:20
magikhttp://i50.tinypic.com/2vvnl9l.jp =] My sexy new ubuntu 10.4 desktop with conky. The conky script is pretty much made by me =]00:20
cyborgsmurfwhat does the keys stand for in Ubuntu - gparted?00:20
Piccolo48Do I have to put WBUI (or whatever the windows version is) specifically, or will the normal i386 install file thing work as well?00:20
NE_Homecyborgsmurf: the partition is locked00:21
kamil_anybody will help me ?00:21
Ken8521Piccolo48, download a Live CD from ubuntu.com(for whichever version you installed, 32 or 64bit).. burn the ISO to a cd then use it, to install the kernel source, etc.. following the directions at that lin.. it will rsolve any dependency errors you'll run into00:21
NE_Homecyborgsmurf: you are trying to resize a mounted partition ?00:21
cyborgsmurfyes00:21
Ken8521Piccolo48, ive never used wubi, but i'm pretty sure the regular i386 cd will work fine, assuming you are using 32bit wubi00:21
tripelbmy torrents used to work fine. Now I keep getting permission denied on where I aim to put them. I told it "desktop" but the permission denied says media.00:21
eaccentihow can I install gtk2.0 >=2.8 ?00:21
NE_Homekamil_: to what i know, ubuntu doesn't use x.org for its X configuration like other normal linuxes do00:22
Piccolo48ok cool00:22
NE_Homexorg.conf that was00:22
tripelbPiccolo48, use the regular livecd that would work to install Ubuntu (in any form) on your bomputer. The wubi will be on that CD.00:22
cyborgsmurfis it possible to resize the partition Im running on?00:22
* iWaldo downloads the super grub CD00:23
CaptainTrekcyborgsmurf:  no, not unless you load into livecd first00:23
Jordan_UNE_Home: Upstream Xorg has lost its dependence on an xorg.conf, though one will still be used if provided. Almost all current linux distros do not ship an xorg.conf by default.00:23
cyborgsmurfwhat is a liveCD (Im a former win-user)00:23
tripelbcyborgsmurf, then you wont be running on that partition. (so the answer is clearly, no.)00:23
=== trevor is now known as Yarrgh
beartatodoes anyone know if the ecryptfs kernel module has to be loaded on boot for the encrypted home directory to work?00:23
cyborgsmurfyeah its pretty clear now00:24
yosukels00:24
tripelbcyborgsmurf, It's ubuntu that you can run from a CD. iT's wonderful.00:24
NE_Homecyborgsmurf: you will have to unmount it first. But that's something beyond my ability to explain. You can do it easy if you boot with the live-cd and resize the partition. The idea is that when resized, the partition should NOT be in use00:24
tripelbcyborgsmurf, you can use it00:24
NE_HomeJordan_U: yea I heared that too. But does this mean that xorg detects most of its needed parameters automatically ?00:25
cyborgsmurfwhats good about mounting linux from a live CD... isnt that going to make Ubuntu slower?00:25
Jordan_UNE_Home: Yes.00:25
n8wis pm-utils the default hibernation mechanism for ubuntu?00:25
Jon--A little off-topic: I remember one time viewing the source for different Java files [ie LinkedList.java]. Which packages would I need installed (I have JDK/JRE) and where would I find these?00:25
NE_Homecyborgsmurf: slower for using it all the time yes. But when it comes to fixing stuff and troubleshooting, it's your best friend that live cd00:26
gartralanyone manage to get wine 1.2 to work with source-engine games in 64-bit lucid? I THINK it's pulse screwing up. but i don't see an option too change the default soundcore under syste,>Preferences>Sound anymore.. why the hell was that re/moved?00:26
tripelbcyborgsmurf, you can use it to try ubuntu without installing. Anything you want to save can go on a flashdrive. And since it can read your windows drive, you can use it to save files from a disk which has windows failed. One of the wpnders pof ubuntu is that --unlike windoes-- you can take an ubuntu disk out of one machine, put it in another machine and it will boot!! Wow, no DRM to machine.00:26
Daekdroomgartral, if it's not the official version in the repos, you should head to #winehq00:26
Jordan_Ucyborgsmurf: You can't resize a partition that you are booted from (you can, but it's not worth the effort). So by booting from CD you allow yourself to resize your Ubuntu partition.00:26
gartralDaekdroom: #winehq is ignoring me00:26
cyborgsmurfthe live CD is that the same CD as the one which I burned my ISO into?00:26
Jordan_Ucyborgsmurf: Yes.00:27

NE_Homepartition00:28
cyborgsmurfthanks. So after I've resized my partition, which I want to use, can I go back using Ubuntu with more space?00:28
tripelbNE_Home, ramdisk dies when power is off. That's what I was talking about AVOIDING00:28
=== BoomSie_ is now known as BoomSie
NE_Homegartral: well it was mostly a test and proof of concept. And also because I needed a tool for recovery utilities00:29

tripelbcyborgsmurf, that's a question to be determined by experience and not me.00:29
gartralanyone manage to get wine 1.2 to work with source-engine games in 64-bit lucid? I THINK it's pulse screwing up. but i don't see an option too change the default soundcore under syste,>Preferences>Sound anymore.. why the hell was that re/moved?00:29
NE_Hometripelb: yea. But I was using the ramdisk as a swap area :)00:29
NE_HomeiWaldo: and does it boot ubuntu ?00:30
iWaldoDon't know how (or if) that pertains to the status of the BIOS and/or the grub install on the mahcine00:30
iWaldoNE_Home: Trying now00:30
tripelbNE_Home, I thought that's what the livecd did. Gee, I assumed. How does the liveCD do it then?00:30
cyborgsmurfisnt that the purpose of resizing... to be able to use more space?00:30
tripelbmy torrents used to work fine. Now I keep getting permission denied on where I aim to put them. I told it "desktop" but the permission denied says media.00:30
gartralhow do i change the default soundcore in ubuntu? Pulseaudio is broken through and through!00:31
Loshkigartral: which os version?00:31
tripelbTransmission got all fouled up somehow. How can I get it back to defaults??00:31
NE_Hometripelb: that's how it does it in a way. The live cd has a compressed filesystem in it and mounted accordingly, that's why it is SLOW.00:31

k0d3g3arne1 here using a PCI eSata card with Ubuntu?00:32
Jordan_Ugartral: Have you tried asking about your problem in #pulseaudio (preferably without trolling about pulseaudio being "broken")?00:33
iWaldoYep, boots Ubuntu fine00:33
tripelbNE_Home, you said that you have a version of Ubuntu LiveCD that will do swap on a RAMdisk. I thought it did. then you replied -NE_Home> tripelb: that's how it does it in a way. The live cd has a compressed filesystem in it and mounted accordingly, that's why it is SLOW.-  Please explain further...00:33
NE_Hometripelb: some parts of the live cd filesystem are on a ramdisk. Like the /home/ubuntu (the live system user) and maybe other parts of which I can't be sure which.00:33

love_I  have an untouched installation I'm trying to get online, now however with all ports filtered00:34
Jordan_UiWaldo: Can you try running "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -pcritical grub-pc" from within Ubuntu?00:34
Loshkigartral: I had good luck fixing 10.04 sound by following the 'nosound' link in this article: http://www.unixmen.com/linux-tutorials/937-things-to-do-after-installing-ubuntu-1004-lts-lucid-lynx (see 'nosound' in the 2nd paragraph). No idea if it will work with 64 bit though...00:34
arimmermiskinis: why not use the alternate install - al ltext00:34
tripelbOK and so what is the difference in the disk/image/ on the flashdrive that you mentioned that has swap-on-a-ramdrive00:34
gartralJordan_U: for my purposes, pulse is broken completly, i cannot pipe sound from source-engine games through pulse, it's seemingly impossible. i'm not trolling.. im just saying that for what i need, pulseaudio is completly useless00:34
Zelozelosim using ubuntu 10.04, i dl'd frets on fire from the repos, and i have a bunch of songs for it dl'd from a few sites, whree do i need 2 put them?00:35
tripelbTranmission doesnt understand the target locaation. I must be doing something wrong. I'd so appreciate some help.00:35
NE_Hometripelb: yes that's correct. That's actually a waste of ram memory from the live cd but then again, trying a complete system without installing anything, does have a cost somewhere. This cost is ram memory00:35
gartralLoshki: I want sound! that's my problem right now, pulse wont pipe sound from source-engine games00:35
miskinisSo I add exactly "-al ltext" within the params, and before the -- at the end???00:35
Zelozelosi know in windows theres a data folder in the fof folder that the songs go into, but i cant seem to locate it00:35
Loshkigartral: you can remove pulseaudio I believe. http://www.ubuntugeek.com/fix-for-all-pulseaudio-related-issues.html. I've never tried this on 10.04 though...00:35
iWaldoJordan_U: Done, takes me to grub configuration menu00:36
gothranHi guys, can anyone tell me where can I download makehuman 0.9.1 for linux? (karmic)00:36
aaronjust got ubuntu desktop: I was wondering how to enable the feature where when you drag a window to the left it takes up the left half of your screen and when you drag one to the right it takes up the right.00:36
tripelbOK NE_Home what's better about your debian flashdrive. Or is it that it is done in debian that is special?00:36
Jordan_Ugartral: I didn't mean to say that you were trolling, it's just that often people join #pulseaudio and rant about it being broken, while still expecting to be helped. I was just trying to head that off before it started just in case :)00:36
k0d3g3arJordan_U, it will happen anyway..  :)00:36
Loshkigothran: somewhere here perhaps: http://sites.google.com/site/makehumandocs/download00:37
tripelbI am wanting to rant about my Transmission being broken except that is will prolley end up that it is me who has set it up wrong or maybe not.00:37
Jordan_UiWaldo: Is it asking which drive to install grub to?00:37
Zelozelosdoes anyone know if the songs are still .ogg files for frets on fire in this version?00:37
tripelbHelp my transmission wont accept the target location correctly. I'd guess it makes some assumption. Did I ask for help yet?00:37
tripelbI'll come back. AND00:38
gartralJordan_U: ahh.. i see.. well i'm not a troll (at least, i TRY not to be a troll) but for my purposes, pulse is a giant, moulding turd that's blocking me from playing me games. and i desperatly need to work around it.. and it would seem ubuntu has removed all hope of an easy route. >.<00:38
arimmertripleb: haven't used tmission.  But I suspect your config file is something like .transmission and is a hidden file in your /home.  Enable view hidden and search.  Delete and you can reconfig00:38
iWaldoJordan_U: "A new version of configuration file /etc/default/grub is available, but the version installed currently has been locally modified. What would you like to do about it?"00:38
gothranLoshki: yeah but they redirect me here http://rpmlinux.org/readme-first00:38
tripelbNE_Home, yes I'd like to see what I can about your 8G debian but I dont have the room for it till I get a new HD.00:39
sizzlefireI have two screens, and when i drag  to the edge of one, instead of splitting and displaying on both it jumps to a different screen, how can i make it split?00:39
NE_Hometripelb: no. It's that it is not a live cd, it's a complete installation. All actions are persistant, i can install and uninstall and have documents and all. It bing debian has nothing to do with it. Ubuntu can be done that way too. The magic tool is "debootstrap"00:39
iWaldoThen options to install the standard version, compare it to the installed version, and things of that sort00:39
NE_Hometripelb: oh. I'd recomend you see to build your own :)00:39
gartralLoshki: those instructions wont work, the sound menu they use is older, and the newer one lacks the options that one gives entirly00:39
cyborgsmurfwhy does the sound in some games disappear and then eventually disappears?00:39
Loshkigothran: http://makehuman.googlecode.com/files/makehuman-alpha_5_i386.deb starts a download when I try it...00:39
tripelbarimmer thanks and 've saved it in a file. I'll go do it.00:39
Jordan_Ugartral: Try seeing if #pulseaudio can get pulse to do the right thing for your setup, and just avoid voicing your opinion :)00:40
NE_Hometripelb: basically, you treat the flash drive as if it were a hard disk. And you install the system there00:40
cyborgsmurfmistyped00:40
aaronjust got ubuntu desktop: I was wondering how to enable the feature where when you drag a window to the left it takes up the left half of your screen and when you drag one to the right it takes up the right00:40
Loshkigartral: I skipped the alsa gui part which didn't apply to my version, and did the rest, and it still worked. YMMV of course...00:41
tripelbNE_Home, I'd like to build an ubuntu liveCD that has xchat and the non-free on it. and chrome.  I'll have to learn how to do that though. All suggestions appreciated.00:41
gartralJordan_U: it's a known bug in wine 1.2 that pulse has broken soure-game sound. this is confirmed on pulse forums, ubuntu forums, and winehq. i know for a fact the fix is the removal/bypassing of pulse00:41
Jordan_UiWaldo: If you haven't made any important changes to /etc/default/grub that you want to keep then choose to use the maintainer's version.00:41
NE_Hometripelb: be warned that this thing will wear your flash drive off very fast. But I can justify the costs of learning :p00:41
tripelbaaron you aer so write on.00:41
cyborgsmurfI mean why does sound in games sometimes sound crappy then completely disappears?00:41
tripelbaaron you aer so right on. I want that too.00:41
tomcylhello all00:41
gartralLoshki: YMMV? i don't understan the acronym00:41
tripelbNE_Home, I just want to build a custom install or live CD00:41
iWaldoJordan_U: Would using the maintainer's version nuke my list of OSes or anything like that?00:41
gothranLoshki: this is the alpha, the old one is 0.9.1 but is packed for mandriva and it last with .rpm... what I have to do with it?00:41
arimmergartral: your mileage may vary00:41
Jordan_Ugartral: Have you tried pasuspender?00:42
Loshkigartral: an Americanism. Your mileage may vary i.e. it may not work for you...00:42
Jordan_UiWaldo: No.00:42
vic20gmri am wondering 1]can i install low-latency kernal without reinstalling karmic?00:42

brickyhey anybody know how to auto start with compiz enabled00:44
gartralJordan_U: no, but it looks like it may work, though i try running it and it wants options.. pasuspender -s localhost returns me to the -h output >.<00:44
arimmermiskinis: STRONGLY suggest you drop the desktop install iso, download the alternate and try that00:45
NE_Hometripelb: does your liveCD have to be ubuntu ?00:45

aaronjust got ubuntu desktop: I was wondering how to enable the feature where when you drag a window to the left it takes up the left half of your screen and when you drag one to the right it takes up the right...or what its called so i can google atleast00:47
vic20gmracicula honestly im not sure, but is there *any* other kernal i cud use to possibly improve gaming?00:47
iWaldoJordan_U: When I rebooted, it got as far as the menu, then froze. Second time, it let me select an OS, then just went back to the grub menu and froze when I picked one. Third time, it just gave me a screen full of zeros00:47
Loshkigothran: download  http://makehuman.googlecode.com/files/makehuman-alpha_5_i386.deb and then do sudo gdebi makehuman-alpha_5_i386.deb00:47
gartralJordan_U: http://pastebin.com/RRebP4rw <-- REALLY?00:47
vic20gmracicula, honestly im not sure, but is there *any* other kernal i cud use to possibly improve gaming?00:47
cyborgsmurfI have windows7,XP and Ubuntu with grub... I used to be able to boot in windows but after re-installing Ubuntu  10.04 and back to 9.10, I cant run windows from grub anymore... is windows lost forever?00:48
iWaldoNow it just goes to the grub screen and freezes00:48
MrPancakevic20gmr: Heh, a Windows kernel so you don't have the abstraction layer? :-)00:48
tomcylhow do i  clear WPA key i enter before?00:48
tripelbaaron, this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6o92RoCV8RU00:48
arimmermiskinis: precisely.  pretty sure you downloaded the desktop iso which is GUI by default.  the alternate iso is a TEXT BASED installer.  Quote:  This installation CD is suited for computers unable to run the graphical desktop based installation, either because their computer does not meet the minimum requirements for the live cd or because their computer requires configuration after the...00:48
arimmer...installation is complete in order to use the desktop.00:48
gartralvic20gmr: if ubuntu still has support for a realtime kernal00:48
gothranLoshki: yes, that is easy, but I would try to install the 0.9.1 version, not the alpha (its lacks of options)...00:48
Jordan_Ugartral: The man page is more clear than the --help message00:48
NE_Hometripelb: another thing of interest to you is this as well:   http://live.debian.net/00:48
gothranloshki: makehuman-0.9.1-2mapi2008.1.i586.rpm, I have downloaded it but I do not know how to extrack it00:49
iWaldoThis time it let me select an OS before it froze00:49
tripelbaaron http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/4674/00:49
iWaldoSo, no change00:49
tripelbthanks NE_Home00:49
vic20gmrMrPancake, idk if i have an abstr layer00:49
aciculavic20gmr, probably not00:49
gartralJordan_U: i read that too, still dont understand it, pasuspender -s localhost SHOULD have killed PA for a bit... but..00:49
miskinisarimmer: OK, many thanks, and I apologize for my ignorance.  Although I've used ubuntu 8 and 9, I was a redhat user, and a brief debian user only.00:49
patx_what is the default image viewer called?00:49
vic20gmrgartral, if.... then wut?00:50
NE_Hometripelb: and the ulimate goal could be this:  http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/    (the livecd link at the end, but all there is plain awesome)00:50
gothranOr maybe someones know there download a makehuman 0.9.1 for a generic distro? a gz or a bz2?00:50
NE_Homeultimate*00:50
gothranOr maybe someones know there can I download a makehuman 0.9.1 for a generic distro? a gz or a bz2?00:50
arimmermiskinis: not to worry.  As many times as I've been bailed out of brain dead system of my own creation, this is the least i can to00:50
xorwhy1I really wish I could make my mouse drag smoother, rather than this raw pixel-jumping cursor-purism the gnome devs were after.00:50
tomcylhi guy00:50
gartralvic20gmr: then your SoL.. try another distro like Sabayon?00:50
vic20gmracicula, prob not - to wut do u refer?00:50
aciculaif theres any gain to rebuilding the kernel for games00:51
vic20gmrgartral, i dont know if i have abstraction layer, how do i determine this00:51
NE_Hometripelb: the debian live link is in my opinion a compromise between trimming down ubuntu to a custom live cd, and that other one, linuxfromscratch which starts it all from source code.00:51
Shinydanheya00:51

vic20gmr_[lucid]i have looked, and looked for ways to improve my game performance, do any of u here have any ideas for me?01:04
edbiantripelb, that commands tells dpkg (the low level package manager) to install a package in the current directory named "transmission"  Is that what you want?01:04
NE_Hometripelb: and no, you don't want to put sudo in front of dpkg unless you necessarily have to and know what you are doing01:04
edbianTaulus, It is a step forward.  Compared to other releases 1 month after release 10.04 has very few bugs.01:04

datakidedbian, ah, it turns out I do still have a panel - the bottom one :) I never thought of them as being the same thing :)01:11
edbianbricky, I got into those once but I got rid of them because I didn't find many of them more useful than the applets I could put in the panel01:11

iWaldoJordan_U: The "detect any grub2 installation" just takes me right back to the grub CD menu01:11

edbiantripelb, What are you trying to do?  grep filters things.01:12

Jack__Hello, I am trying to get webcamstudio to work. While the cam works with cheese and the webcamstudio itself, it does not seem to work in ustream. I am reading vloopback is needed, but the software web site said that is not used anymore. Any ideas on what is needed?01:12
brickyedbian: =)01:12
vic20gmr_[lucid]onetinsoldier: ok, thx - do u have any suggestions i might try, in order to get better gaming ?01:13
edbiandatakid, You might have to delete all the settings for your panels.  It sounds like you did something that made a panel exist but not be visable in any way.  Does that make sense?01:13
datakidnow I try to add clock to the panel and suddenly I have 6 panels01:13
Jordan_UiWaldo: Can you check the md5sum of the download and resulting CD? It should be a9cdc2e74a012ed5c746ad0dd8ee299c01:13

edbiandatakid, ha ha. You just didn't wait!01:13
iWaldoJordan_U: Er, how?01:13
tripelbedbian, yes I know. I was trying to see if there were any vuze still running. I want to completely remove vuze from my system. Tonight I did sudo apt-get remove vuze and it did a lot but vuze did not leave.01:13
arimmerdatakid: i've got the terminal commands that will reset your panels.  Then you can rebuild them as you wish and populate whatever applets you wish01:13
datakidarimmer, it seems to be working, thanks though01:14
datakidI'm rebuilding now01:14
tomcylwhy nobody worry about me?01:14
edbiantripelb, removing the package makes it so that that code can never be started again.  It does not stop instances of that code that are already running.  If you want to see what's running you can use ps -e01:14
tripelbedbian I am also trying to get a torrent to download with transmission. It used to work. So I did something that changed it.01:14
Jordan_UiWaldo: md5sum /path/to/super_grub_disk_hybrid-1.98s1.iso && md5sum /dev/cdrom01:14
datakidis there anyway to remove the mail icon from the indicator applet?01:14
onetinsoldiervic20gmr_[lucid]: as they say in the automotive world, there's no replacement for displacement. just get the fastest and best computer parts you can to get the best performance01:14
edbiantripelb, If you want to filter the output of ps -e (cause there is a lot) send it to grep using a pipe and give grep something to filter based on like this: ps -e | grep vu01:15
CkhiKuzadi need to know how to force a drive to be writable. my stupid ubuntu drive is screwed up, and i need to delete something in the /tmp/orbit-ckhikuzad directory (or move it for backup purposes) to allow it to boot.01:15
edbiantripelb, That will show every line in ps -e that has vu in it01:15
edbiantripelb, Make sense?01:15
tripelbedbian that's what ps was supposed to to      ps > grep vuze    I thought would give me all the vuze that is running. It has in the past for firefox. What happened.01:15

I have HDD partitioned as shown (http://i47.tinypic.com/24w9fk9.png) and would like to put Lucid in the ~25GB space at the end of the drive - the installer, however, wants to chop up my 100GB storage drive.

_jokedbian, essentially there were three options when the last partition was already formatted (side-by-side, use entire disk, or specify manually). when i deleted that last partition to make it free space, there were four options.01:26

edbianphillyj, I don't know why it would need so much.  Maybe it's installing a bunch of latex stuff?01:30
edbian_jok, Yes01:30

JCKungFuBear, I've had similar problems, a lot of old BIOS setups don't include USB Keyboard Driver support. You're either going to have to update your BIOS (from the Manufacturer website, one of the only things Dell still does well for example) or use a PS/2 Keyboard for the install. Presumably it has that input considering it would make using a keyboard impossible if it did not and wouldn't let you use USB01:30

JCEdbian, in KDE, when I right click the volume icon I get KMix, which has nothing about PCM in it.01:40

edbianJC, IDK.  All i know is that I need to have it up ;)01:41

JCEdbian, Ok, where exactly am I right clicking though? the volume icon at the top of the screen? That tells me that I can basically pin or unpin volume. WHen I click sound preferences (the only other option) I see nothing that says "edit" or "preferences"01:43

tomcylhelp please01:48
Flannelgbear14275: Modern OSes don't pay any attention to the boot flag, but sure.01:48
magik=]01:48
gbear14275Flannel: So it has no relevance in the installer at all?01:49
edbianJC, No no, what do you have in that volume applet?01:49
Flannelgbear14275: right01:49
gbear14275Flannel: Why is it in there then?01:49
Flannelgbear14275: Because it's something you /can/ set while doing partition stuff, so if you're interfacing with some other OS, it might be significant.01:49
acerimmer_tomcyl: what's up01:50
JCEdbian, nothing changes in the upper bar (Like it would for MS word or something in Mac OS or Windows). I've got a bar for output volume set to max, and 5 tabs. Sound Effects, Hardware, input, Output, and Applications01:50
gbear14275also... is there a reason the /boot partition is set to ext2 (instead of ext3 or 4)?01:50
edbianJC, I have no idea.  Totally lost here.  Sorry bud!01:50
Flannelgbear14275: No, it shouldn't be.01:50
JCedbian, thanks any way man01:51
edbianJC, No problem01:51
gbear14275Flannel: ok, well I've got some messed up ubuntu 10.04 server disk then because I'm staring at the partition table and /boot says ext2 and I used the guided partitioner01:51
okapi14onetinsoldier: ok let me try01:52
Flannelgbear14275: That's strange indeed.  There might be some reason for not setting it ext4 (but I'm not aware of one), but ext3 is definately safe.01:52

JCBluesKaj, it wont load sound at all. aparently i'm not the only one to experience this. I've only seen one (reportedly) successful use of it in Linux, and it was in 9.10, on a fresh install. Nothing else. No audio is coming out at all. it's special.01:56
jasper_so anyone know why this refuses to install01:56
tarekhello everybody, i got a problem with apt-get install, i have an error everytime im trying to install something01:56
acerimmer_tomcyl: have you ever been able to connect with ubuntu01:56
onetinsoldierokapi14: you're welcome01:56
tomcyli con not login to my router using w/L01:56
acerimmer_tomcyl: ok, confused.  YOu can't get on wifi at all or can't get to your router?01:56
tarekim can pastbin the information if needed01:56
JCtarek, i've been a little busy with my own stuff till now. What's the app you're trying to get.01:56
BluesKajJC, isn't that realtek based ?01:56
gbear14275ok so it looks like the lvm partitioner is formatting my /boot to be ext201:56
gbear14275that normal Flannel?01:57
tarekJC, none of the application want to install01:57
JCBluesKaj, you'd think. Aparently it's based on whatever drunk idiot put it together.01:57
tarekJC, it all started when i tryed to reinstall mysql501:57
Flannelgbear14275: Boot shouldn't be in LVM, but I don't know why it'd be ext2 vs ext3 (I make mine ext3)  but sure, it could be I guess.01:57
tomcyli can not get to my router with WIFI01:57
JCBluesKaj, I'm trying to update Alsa, i'll let you know if it works, but good god, I;'d get something else. ANYTHING else. Not worth the hassle01:57
tomcyli using hard cable now01:58
JCTarek, how are you trying to install? terminal? software repo?01:58
acerimmer_tomcyl: can u get into router via cable?01:58
Psi-JackI'm beginning to seriously think that whatever happened to the R8169 driver in Linux 2.6.32 is seriously broken.01:58
tomcylyes01:58
tarekJC, terminal as always, i have tried both even with synaptic graphical01:58
acerimmer_tomcyl: can you get any other wifi networks?01:58
JCtomcyl, yes, you need to know your routers basic IP address. What is the router you're using. Also, where are you clicking to get on wifi?01:58
tomcylno01:58
JCTomcyl, what system are you using, laptop right? dell by chance?01:59
acerimmer_tomcyl: laptop or desktop?01:59
gbear14275Flannel: ok, so I'm looking at my partitioning scheme here and changed the /boot to be ext4, I've got the other 30gb as LVM with two LV's, LV root and LV swap_101:59
gbear14275that look right or wrong to anyone?01:59
JCTarek, that's fun. Hmm. No applications, not even like the Sudoku game? I'm guessing if you use terminal you're more than aware enough to check hard disk space. What error comes up when you do this?02:00

* gbear14275 does so on the same machine02:01
tarekJC, yes none of them :)..its weird because i usually do aptitude update to fix any small error but this wouldnt get through, would you need a pastebin?02:01
JCtomcyl, it's probably a driver issue. What is your computer model and brand? I'll help you find the right driver I've done that part billions of times lol02:01
JCtarek, it'd be nice lol.02:02
tomcyli using the same router to talk , same computer, not the computer02:02
acerimmer_tomcyl: talk to jc02:02
tarekJC, like i said earlier, i tried to reinstall mysql but something went wrong, i have googled it before but nothing interesting...im gonna pastbin it02:02

acerimmer_JC: slowing down much02:04
loddonIsn't acroread the package for Adobe Reader? It is in the search list but when I try to install, the msg says "Package acroread is not available, but is referred to by another package.

Talon_I need to install an ftpd on my ubuntu 10.04 LTS, theres quite a few in the package list, which one should I install?02:05
JCtarek, it sounds like you've got a major problem then. Have you tried using anything in the rescue function from a livecd?02:05
tarekJC, no i havent02:06
onetinsoldierloddon: go here an enable the 'partner' repository... System -Administration --> Software Sources --> Other Software tab02:06
tomcyli dont think this is W/L card ,02:06
onetinsoldierloddon: after that it should be available02:06
tarekJC, the weird thing is that after i kill dpkg i am able to install the program but only after killing02:06
JCtomcyl, I cannot understand your english. it may not be the card, but it might be the driver.02:06
loddononeinsoldier: thks, will try it now.02:06
JCtarek, it's an issue with dpkg then, do you have a live cd handy?02:07
tomcyljust the WPA key auto changed to a 64 bit02:07
JCtomcyl, do you detect having a router?02:07
=== cbone_away is now known as cbone

tarekJC, not right now, but i can DL it and burn it if needed02:08
loddononeinsoldier: can i not just add the debian-multimedia line to sources.list?02:08
andrew_2Hey, I'm on 10.4 and I'm trying to connect to a vpn02:08
JCtomcyl, so you can see that your wireless network exists?02:08
Out_Cold!info acroread | loddon: need to enable multi/universe first02:08
ubottuloddon:: Package acroread does not exist in lucid02:08
andrew_2It just says each time 'Connection failed because there were no valid vpn secrets'02:08
Out_Coldoops02:08
onetinsoldierloddon: for acroread? no, i don't think so, but i could be wrong02:08
tomcylyes, but , when i enter Wpa key, it auto changed02:09
JCtarek, that's what i'd do, I've had the least problems with 9.10 disks. the ones for 10 have been extra iffy on burn. Yayyy.02:09
tarekJC, its funny because i can actully install the program but only after going through the process of killing dpkg02:09
JCtarek, I understand that lol. that's probably where your problem is, and you'd have to redo dpkg. ya know?02:09
tarekJC, redo dpkg?02:10
tomcylthe problem is ; the WPA can not been saved02:10
tarekJC, have you taken a look at pastebin?02:11
JCtarek, dpkg is probably corrupt. reinstall would have been a better choice. Yeah I saw the pastebin, dpkg is the only part of it that is returning errors.02:11
JCtarek *reinstall instead of "redo"02:12
gbear14275ok... i suspect I found the problem.  I'm at the grub bootloader screen and its asking me if I want to install it on the first hard disk... that would be sda right?02:12
onetinsoldierwhat errors is dpkg giving?02:12
tarekJC, well i understand, so what are suggesting ? :)02:12
JCtomcyl, you're saying that you changed your WPA password, and that each time you reconnect, it's got the old password saved?02:12
untmdsprtwhat would cause the menu bars to start flashing?02:13
tomcylalso , JC, it was show 15% connection what mater how close to it02:13
MaT-dgI installed google chrome and it works perfectly fine. However after a restart of ubuntu the chrome launcher is missing from the main menu. Chrome still runs by running google-chrome in terminal though.02:13
onetinsoldierif my apt/dpkg were to get broken, i would become more powerful than you can possibly imagine!02:13
LinuxVenturesystem - preferences - main menu02:14
LinuxVenturesee if that puts it back in the list :)02:14
JCTarek, well, considering dpkg is kind of required to do any install, you're gonna have a pretty hard time installing it, with a corrupt installer program in the first place... DL the live CD, and go into the rescue mode (accessable from the inital menu, remember when you were asked if you wanted to TRY ubuntu? There.) it should detect an error with dpkg, if not, boot into the live cd, and using the live cd, do the install for dpkg. apt-get dpkg o02:14
JCwhatever.02:14
onetinsoldierwhat errors is dpkg giving?02:14
JCTomcyl, what is your router model? is there a way you can be MUCH more specific? Computer and Router model information pls.02:15
JConetinsoldier, there's a pastebin for it.02:15
tarekJC, alright i understand! well thanks for the help, ill let you know how it went02:15
onetinsoldiertarek: i'm going to have a look at the pastebin02:15
JCtarek, thanks, I'll be online.02:15
tarekonetinsoldier, thanks that would nice02:16
gbear14275ok... where do I want to install my bootloader?  on my / partition?  or on my /boot partition?  Or just to the MBR of the hard disk with the /boot or / partition on it?02:16
JConetinsoldier, it looks like every time the dpkg starts up, it's having a problem. That's why I suggested the possible corruption02:16

clop2hi, i put ubuntu 10.04 on a new i3 system, using its integrated graphics... X seems to lock up when playing videos (with mythtv)... I can still SSH in and reboot, but ugh.  Are there any known instabilities with the driver, or suggestions for how I might figure out what's going wrong?02:19
acerimmer_jc: maybe have him reset the router to defaults and walk through configuring *buntu network settings?02:19
JCgbear14275, excellent term lol. you're trying to INSTALL ubuntu yes? have you before on this machine?02:19
onetinsoldiertarek: ok, do you get the same error output if you try --> sudo apt-get -f install  ?02:20
JCacerimmer, that's what i'd do if I were him, but i think there's a communication barrier.02:20

JCtomcyl, what version of ubuntu are you using, and have you updated recently02:21

Out_Coldtreize, i think rhythmbox does?02:22
tomcyllooks like some things to do with keyRing?02:23
onetinsoldiertarek: i don't know quite what to make of this error --> debconf: DbDriver "config": /var/cache/debconf/config.dat is locked by another process: Resource temporarily unavailable02:23
JCtomcyl, ok what I would do in your situation is reset the router entirely. just set it up again, should take about a half hour for both laptops. come up with a new name, new password, and set up a new connection on both computers02:23
* gbear14275 dances 02:23
tarekonetinsoldier, i understand...but what about the last one about the mysql package?02:23
tomcylthanks anyway02:23
gbear14275ok... so I just installed server from disk.... I should run apt-get update and dist-upgrade to bring everything into the fresh correct?02:24
treizeThanks Out_Cold but I'm kinda scared to try. I wish there was someone here with first hand experience since I just restored my iPod02:24
speirosacerimmer: I had an issue with a program, which I can't remember the name of.  I think it was a database manager.  It wouldn't download, so I removed it, then it wouldn't remove.  I can't remember what it is called.  Now I can't install the PERL updates, or a few others02:24
JCgbear14275, assuming you have no desktop gui installed, yes that'd be the easiest way02:24
Out_Coldtreize, look at gtkpod i think it's called..02:24
jasper_is there a hardware detection/manager in 10.04?02:24
treizeI'll give gtkpod a look.02:25
gbear14275JC:  Actually whats the difference between dist-upgrade and aptitude upgrade02:25
Out_Coldgbear14275, you can only dist upgrade twice a year02:25
onetinsoldiertarek: well, i might know how to work around certain things, but they're all going to fail i think with the error happening that i pasted in above02:25
acerimmer_speiros: and you're using software center or synaptic?02:25
speirosI was using software centre for both times.02:26
gbear14275Out_Cold: I don't think thats the case02:26
onetinsoldiertarek: what version of ubuntu are you running?02:26
Out_Coldgbear14275, from 8.04 > 8.10 > 9.04 > 9.10 this is dist upgrading02:26
acerimmer_speiros: suggest you exit SC and try synaptic.  you'll see more information on what's going wrong02:26
jasper_ill take that as a no? haa.02:27
tarekonetinsoldier, the last one 1002:27
speirosacerimmer_: Thanks.  I'll try that mate.02:27
tarekonetinsoldier, the last one 10.0402:27

ksbalajiI wish to compress some files (avi and some videos) Which linux app you suggest please?02:35
JCSamual, Oh I know that, you used to have to buy cards for everything, but it's 2010 lol. This mobo can't be more than 5 years old.02:35

JCksbalaji, 7zip.02:35

ubottuRoasted: Canonical's partner repositories provide packages a location for software vendors to publish applications. The repo itself can be added by running this in a !terminal: « sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ RELEASE partner" » where RELEASE is lucid/karmic/etc02:36
tarekonetinsoldier, its ok, no worries02:36
ksbalajiJC, thanks02:36
onetinsoldiertarek: do you get anything from   ps aux | grep debconf  ?02:36
JCSamual, yeah, It's not a high end mobo, (clearly) but i'd want to save space too if that was the case. But... it's not. so I got a rocketfish sound card because it was cheap and I was at best buy. Works in windows, but my mobo isn't acpi compliant so I have to use linux. I like linux, but i want my audio to work!02:36
Roastedtrism, you the man! thanks.02:37

Dr_WillisCyL:  try them all. theres only like 4 in the repos last i checked02:38
JCksbalaji, while Dr_Willis is right, the 7z format is going to be one of the better, smaller, and more reliable compression formats. what are you trying to do with it?02:38
Dr_Willisksbalaji:  not really - its a waste of time.  Try them and see.  the archive manager tool can handle most all the formats if you have the proper  packages installed. rar/.7zip02:39
onetinsoldiertarek: at first glance, trying to install, even a newer version , of bash, might be dangerous if that's what he was trying to do there. but, i could solve that problem easily. yours is a different issue02:39

JCksbalaji, it's more efficient to get a bigger hard drive if you can, to be honest with you. 1, the zipped files will be unplayable in any dvd player, only readable on a computer, and 2, they would load quite slowly on your computer, as you'd have to temporarily extract each time to view the video. Video files are generally pretty big, even at low quality. What kind of computer are you using? Brand, Desk or Laptop, Model?02:42

JCksbalaji, it's really really inexpensive to update your hard drive, you can even install an extra alongside your current so you don't even have to reinstall your operating system. check craigslist if you're in the states, ebay if not, for an IDE hard drive, though personally i'd go with an external02:48

JCOk, My turn to ask a question. I'm looking at the sound troubleshooting guide on the ubuntu help site, ( https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting?action=show&redirect=DebuggingSoundProblems ) and I get to the part where it says "Do you have the sound modules installed?" It asks me to type " find /lib/modules/'unamer -r' | grep snd"  and it tells me that the directory does not exist. Then, the guide says to use "sudo aptitude install02:52
JClinux-ubuntu-modules-'uname -r' linux-generic" but it says it can't find it. am I supposed to substitute something for "uname -r"?02:52
onetinsoldiertarek: then tell me if this works now  -->  sudo apt-get autoremove02:52

tarekonetinsoldier, sorry no02:54
jasper_is there any way to install the driver to the hard drive while running live?02:54
JCksbalaji, you're probably better off deleting your videos then, or getting a cheap flash drive and compressing to those. they're bigger than dvd's., more reliable generally, and you can rewrite them02:54
tarekonetinsoldier, what if i get in the dpkg file and delete the mysql stuff in it?02:54
Dr_Willis500gb? i wouldent even bother with anything less then 1tb these days. :)02:55

VisualanteStevethepirate: i want neither, i'm just curious how you could cat a device03:31
Visualantei heard you can cat mouse position and keyboard array03:32
StevethepirateSome devices you can just sommer cat, some you can't :)03:32

lz?03:37
onetinsoldierJC: roger. who knows if i'll know what to do though03:37
JConetinsoldier, idk how to PM in irc, can you tell me the command for it so that i can just type there/ I tend to use "enter" as punctuation and that would make my life much easier.03:37
Stevethepirate /query <user>03:38
dfcnvthow do you send a zero bytes in /dev/dsp?03:38
Stevethepiratedfcnvt: cat /dev/zero > /dev/dsp03:38
macodfcnvt: cat /dev/zero > /dev/dsp03:38
phoebusDizkonnekted, doesn't seem to actualize the setting, any ideas for that? Using the latest ubuntu. Audigy 2 card.03:38
dfcnvtah yes.. very well03:38
gbear14275anyone here done a jeos install?03:38
StevethepirateAlternatively you can use "yes 0 > /dev/dsp" or something like that (man yes)03:39
juancarlospac0why i cant cat my device, on lignux everything its a file or im wrong ?03:39
onetinsoldierJC: what Stevethepirate said... or, i use   /msg <use_nick> <text message>03:39
dfcnvtstrange, doesn't stop..03:39
onetinsoldierJC: what Stevethepirate said... or, i use   /msg <user_nick> <text message>03:39
Dizkonnektedphoebus, sorry? i think you have the wrong nick? lol03:39
JConetinsoldier, apparently it wont lt me. whatever. i'm following this tutorial. i'm at the part where it says do you have the sound modules installed, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting?action=show&redirect=DebuggingSoundProblemsuu03:40
Guest37966hello all, i've just compiled and installed cdrdao-1.2.3 to solve a lucid's problem, but now the update manager insists in suggesting me an older version. I really don't understand this behavior, and my question is if there's a way o fixing this without "locking" this installed version.03:40
macojuancarlospac0: i think you can only cat character devices03:40
macojuancarlospac0: as opposed to block devices03:40
ksbalajiJC, noises? I had a similar problem with audacious. I changed sound driver. (keep changing always:-)) It helps - alsa, arts,esd.,oss,pulse audio.. OK. All the best. This much for my effort.03:40
juancarlospac0but i can cat disks, strange03:40
StevethepirateDONT03:41
StevethepirateDO THAT.03:41
dfcnvtI hasn't tried this.. but what about this one "cat /dev/video0 > /dev/dsp"03:41
Stevethepiratejuancarlospac0!03:41
StevethepirateI would highly recommend that you not do that.03:41
dfcnvtah, nevermind.. doesn't work03:41
onetinsoldierJC: ok. i'm having a look, but i don't know that i'll be able to help with this or not03:41
juancarlospac0why i cant cat03:41
juancarlospac0its only a cat03:41
StevethepirateYeah, but something like "cat /dev/urandom > /dev/sda1" is a BAD IDEA.03:42
JConetinsoldier, i'm more confused about the terminal part. I know what 'uname -r' does, and I tried substituting it for the result of just typing "uname -r" but both times it can't find the packages.03:42
onetinsoldierJC: so, what's happeneing right now? what are you trying to do exactly, and what exactly is happening?03:43
juancarlospac0not the same this is redirect something to a disk03:43
JConetinsoldier, I've got no audio, i'm running through the troubleshoot. this is the first block i've come across. i'm checking to see if i've got the modules installed, which it says "the directory does not exist" so i guess i don't. but when i follow the commands to get them, the system can't find the packages it requests (linux-generic-module) or whatever03:44
JConetinsoldier, "linux-ubuntu-module"03:44
onetinsoldierJC: i'm pretty sure that's because those package names are 'old'. those package names don't exist in newer version of ubuntu. that guid was made for earlier versions of ubuntu it looks like03:44

AndrewX192Anyone know howto get transparency like http://www.cimitan.com/blog/wp-content/murrine_rgba-2.jpg ?03:45
onetinsoldierJC: give me a few minutes to see if i can find the right name03:45
StevethepirateAndrewX192: That will be an option on your window manager. Compiz-fusion, etc.03:45
=== incntrl is now known as marriedman
AndrewX192Stevethepirate, not the transparency on the rest of the window, just the window decoration03:46
AndrewX192Thats with ccsm will do, I want the rest of the window03:46
AndrewX192With murrine03:47
JConesoldier, thanks man03:47
StevethepirateStill looks like just compiz-fusion with some custom theme. :/03:47
AndrewX192Stevethepirate, nah, its murrine with rgba on03:48
AndrewX192But I cant figure out howto enable rgba03:48
onetinsoldierJC: not sure why you'd be missing them. you are running Lucid 10.04?03:48
StevethepirateThen your question should be "anyone know how to enable rgba with murrine on compiz-fusion" :)03:48
onetinsoldierJC: they are installed with the kernel package03:49
juancarlospac0my multimedia multicast streaming system:  "nc -l -p 5000 | mplayer -" and "cat /dev/video0 | nc 224.1.2.3 5000" the problem is that on Lucid my /dev/video0 dont want to cat03:50
JConetinsoldier, I had 9.04 on the system, I updated to 9.10, then to 10.4. 9.10 was over a network upgrae wirelessly, (to a neighbors house ) which probably wasn't too good of an idea. I may have had a corruption in there. the 10.4 update was after I got the internet set up here (new house)03:50
JConetinsoldier, this is all over the span of a week03:50
StevethepirateJC, aptitude probably does some decent checksumming before installing packages.03:50
onetinsoldierJC: roger. i recommend you do --> apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-2.6.32-22-generic  ..then reboot and try again03:51
StevethepirateAnyway, time for some marshmallows on marie biscuits :) bbiab.03:51

Stevethepirateshane2peru_lapto: ps -ax <process name>03:52
StevethepirateTo get PID, then kill -9 <PID> to kill it.03:52

dfcnvtOkay, I'm still on the subject about Cat Video.. I think it will only work with a cable card for television.. This set as /dev/video0 as a cable card... So, it doesn't work specifically for a video camera itself anyway..04:00
Stevethepiratedfcnvt: just use vlc mate.04:00

coz_JC,  ok  have you tried the  alternate cd ?04:02
StevethepirateJC, have you done a md5 checksum on the iso?04:02
JConetinsoldier, ok, I will. coz, yeah, that's the one that wouldn't make it past 7%04:02
JCStevethepirate, I have 5 gigs worth of ubuntu isos. all check out just fine.04:02
StevethepirateThen why is there a potential probleM?04:03
JCWhich was a very nice slapt to the face. I have no idae why they don't work, it's why I had no choice but to update from the only disc that worked, the 9.04.04:03
coz_JC,  are you burning these ISO's  directly from a flash drive?04:03
onetinsoldierJC: i know this, that card is really ancient history. it's probably not supported anymore04:04
rwwdr4c4n: (I'm looking at the package list now, it'll take me a couple of minutes)04:04
JCcoz, no, they're stored on the hard drive of my computer. I've used a flash drive to copy them between computers to try burning disks on them, with no avail.04:05

DizkonnektedYosi it sounds like your looking for something like PING04:14

deepi need help please04:33
edbianjannon, I suggest though that you just get your hands on a 10.04 live CD somewhere.  You're going to be spending a long time upgrading through the versions.  Fiesty is 7.04, you have to upgrade 1 distro at a time.  7.10, 8.04, 8.10, 9.04, 9.10, 10.04  Each one is going to download 600 MB of stuff and possibly break things.04:33

ubottudrknzz: sox (source: sox): Swiss army knife of sound processing. In component universe, is optional. Version 14.3.0-1.1build1 (lucid), package size 88 kB, installed size 216 kB05:00
disk1of5Docteh, i know i don't need it but its set up as a spare05:00
JCgartral, any luck from the pastebin?05:00
onetinsoldiermzuverink: well, i just downloaded it an noticed a problem. it wants to uninstall grub-pc. so it might not be any good for use in Lucid 10.0405:00
mzuverinkonetinsoldier, I found a utiliitty in ubuntu to do it, in admin, called create startup disk05:01
gartralJC: lastlog my posts, i said what to do05:01
drknzzJC, internal audio and ATi HD4200 HDMI05:01
Doctehdisk1of5: i think you can add it as a spare and then tell mdadm you want to add a drive to the amount thats required05:01
onetinsoldiermzuverink: roger. good deal05:01
=== dad_ is now known as Guest1132
JCdrknzz, assuming this is all integrated? sometimes the HDMI driver takes control over the whole sound system.05:02
drknzzJC, i dont know man :s, never messed around with ALSA a lot b405:03
codebrainzDocteh, it shows it's supposed to be in the binutils package for karmic and lucid, i have 9.10 whichever that is.05:03
JCgartral, I don't see it, You told me to xrandr and to pastebin, so I did, I see nothing to do in between that and what I said05:03
onetinsoldiermzuverink: i misread your original question. my bad. use the utility you found, or, you can use 'unetbootin'. it does the same thing too05:03
Docteh!karmic05:03
ubottuUbuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) was the eleventh release of Ubuntu. Downloading: http://releases.ubuntu.com/9.10/ - Release Notes: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/91005:03

Doctehcodebrainz: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?searchon=contents&keywords=gas&mode=exactfilename&suite=karmic&arch=any i just see it listing something in a doc directory vs a bin directory05:04
dr4c4nthamz: what are you looking to learn?05:04
JCgartral it says that size isn't available.05:05
codebrainzDocteh, yea, that's how it is on my fs as well.  wtf!?  the gnu assembly is a pretty fundamental piece of software, i must be missing something05:05
disk1of5Docteh, thnx!05:05
thamzdr4c4n, I just want to get some understanding of how the kernel works, the directory structure of linux, etc05:06
rwwcodebrainz: it's in binutils as /usr/bin/as05:06
rwwcodebrainz: no g :)05:07
JCgartral, neither are 1280 and 1024 (and their respective wides)05:07

Ebuntuuhh could someone help me out with accessing networks using ubuntu? ive spent the past two days trying to get the laptop to connect to the internet. I have a Compaq Presario V5304US and i have ndiswrapper installed.05:08
deadmauswhy does it say "not recommended for daily desktop usage" for the 64 bit version on http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download?05:08
JCEbuntu, ah yes, wifi with laptops. TONS of fun. what's you're wifi adapter called (you can see the driver in windows)05:08
thamzdr4c4n, thanks, i'll try05:08
gartraldeadmaus: cause the 64bit ubuntu has problems05:09
codebrainzrww, aparently it used to be called gas, cuz this makefile insists!  :)  thanks05:09
jason201I use 64 bit daily and haven't run into any problems, nothing major anyway05:09
deadmausgartral: oh. i have a intel i3 processor. should i just install the 32 bit version?05:09
JCgartral, accomplished, the only available modes are lower than 800x60005:09
gartraldeadmaus: depends, what did you need this computer for?05:09
JCdeadmaus, also how much ram you have, if you don't have a shit ton you don't really need 64 bit05:10
deadmausgartral: its a laptop. use it for internet - browser, email client, music, openoffice, etc etc05:10
deadmausJC: not a lot. 4gb, on a laptop05:10
gartraldeadmaus: 32bit05:10
deadmausgartral: ok, i'll go for the 32bit then05:11
dr4c4nthamz: there's also05:11
dr4c4nlxr.linux.no and kernelbook.sourceforge.net, just a google search brought those two up05:11
Mertz`has anyone ever heard of the ubuntu installer saying something like "unable to install bootloader on this partition, please select a different partition"?05:11
gartralJC: you'll have to make a new mode.. i suggest reading man xrandr05:12
JCdeadmaus, Pros and cons05:12
JCA common misconception is that 64-bit architectures are no better than 32-bit architectures unless the computer has more than 4 GB of main memory. This is not entirely true:05:12
JCSystem architecture on Intel x86/32-bit architecture limits virtual memory space to 3 GB, not 4 GB, due to much of the 3–4 GB region being reserved for hardware addressing; see 3 GB barrier. This is not present in 64-bit architectures, which can use 4 GB of memory and more. However x86 processors from the Pentium II onwards allow for a 36-bit physical memory address space, using Physical Address Extension, which gives a 64 GB physical address r05:12
JCof which up to 62 GB may be used by main memory.05:12
FloodBot1JC: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.05:12

Jordan_UMertz`: No, and Ubuntu's installer shouldn't be installing grub to partitions in the first place. Are you doing a guided or advanced install? What is the exact error message?05:13

collectekonenetinsoldier: nope very simple after you add the repo05:19
JCedbuntu, or search for "bcm43xx-fwcutter" in the package manager. if all else fails, use this with ndiswrapper, it's an old tutorial, but still relevant.

ne0futurhi all i have questions concerning the use of UUID in ubuntu for fstab05:26
Semperfi30I've got Ubuntu installed and everything but, sometimes when I tell it to shutdown it won't shutdown properly. Sometimes I have to force a shutdown or restart through the terminal for it to do it properly. ANd sometimes when I come back, my sound doesn't work and it says theres a "Dummy" output or something......05:27
ne0futurthis UUID is different for any  distro i install on my computer, so I think this UUID have nothing universal05:27
mikey_i get an error  ooccured please try later05:27
ne0futurand that /dev/sd* was MUCH more universal than this UUID system05:27
ne0futurso I wonder why ubuntu use this false universal identifier ?05:27
codebrainzne0futur, i think it's unique to the system/bus/disk05:28
JCwell,  i'm gonna head out guys. My sound issue is gonna be fixed by a new sound card, and my video issue I figured out is on the TV's end, I have to call the support line tomorrow at samsung. Thanks to anyone who tried to help, and I hope I helped some of you! Goodnight all.05:28
ne0futurso if I have 2 ubuntu on my diskm i cant chroot from 1 ubuntu to the other cause they have different UUID ?05:28
Semperfi30An example of the odd behavior is when it shuts down, it will freeze on the 3rd dot of the ubuntu logo when it shutsdown05:28
ne0futurthis UUID system in fstab will create much more problems than it is useful05:28
Semperfi30(This is Lucid Linux btw)05:28
mikey_*****WHEN I GO TO YOU TUBE  SAYS AN ERROR ACCOURED  AND DOESNT GIVE ME OPTION TO INSTALL ADOBE05:29
RoDiMuS-Xmikey_: what browser you using?05:29
codebrainzne0futur, i don't think that would make any difference, /etc/fstab isn't used during a chroot afaik05:29
ricqlesyou must install ubuntu manually05:29
ricqleseuh flash sorry05:29
collectekmickey_ : if that is happening on an install of flash i would say try to run it in terminal so you can see the exact error05:29
pat5starI know this is #ubuntu, but I'm just curious about gmail because I've been having on/off problems with it for a week or so, ever since upgrade to lucid. is that a coincidence or are others having problems too. anyone with a gmail account, can you connect right now?05:30
mikey_HOW DO I RUN IN TERMANL?05:30
Semperfi30Anybody have any clue whats going on here? Maybe  I need to re-install Ubuntu?05:30
codebrainzne0futur, the whole point is that you can move disks around and such and it'll always use the correct drive for that install, rather than using the /dev/sd* which change depending on where the disk is plugged in/configured05:30
FyreFoXmikey_: turn caps off.05:30
ricqlessudo apt-get install flashplayer-plugin05:30

Semperfi30Sooo codebrainz...FyreFoX...ricqles...RoDiMuS-X any ideas?05:31
ne0futurcodebrainz: installing 2 ubuntu on the same disk will give 2 different UUID for the SAME partition !05:31
ne0futurthis is mad05:32
mikey_E: Couldn't find package flashplayer-plugin05:32
pat5starI'm using firefox and I do have quite a few google labs enabled so I'm wondering where to begin troubleshooting this. it would be so much easier if you all just told me none of you can connect right now either ;)05:32

ne0futurand breaks many things that were working before, like chrooting fron one ubuntu instance to another05:32
Doctehpat5star: install some other browser and check it like that is what i'd do05:32
codebrainzne0futur, it works pretty well actually.  if you'd rather, you can replace UUID= with LABEL= and use the volume label05:32
FyreFoXSemperfi30: perhaps hardware. did you have a previous ubuntu on that harwdare?05:33
Doctehchromium-browser for instance, might have to force the default back to firefox afterwards though05:33
onetinsoldiermikey_: sudo aptitude install flashplugin-installer05:33
Semperfi30I had 9.0405:33
Semperfi30but I erased the partition05:33
ricqlesoh your sources.list not fully configured05:33
RoDiMuS-XSemperfl30, so you installed 10.04 fresh05:33
codebrainzne0futur, i don't think /etc/fstab is parsed during a chroot, unless you mount -a i suppose05:33
ricqlesi'm sorry i must go on my job05:33
Semperfi30FyreFoX: I also checked my sound cards "Realtek" with the listing on Ubuntu Wiki and it checks out as working OOB normally05:33
pat5starRoDiMuS-X: just tried with konqueror, same error: The requested URL "/mail/", is invalid.05:34
Semperfi30RoDiMuS-X: Yes I installed it over 9.04 due to the fact that I couldn't locate the Sudo password05:34
Semperfi30Basically a fresh install by erasing the previous partition and installing Lucid fresh05:34
ricqleshave a good day and search for add lines for adobe container in your source.list05:34
ne0futurthere are thousands of people having problems wit this _not_ _universal_ UUID system05:34
ne0futurI just wanted to say this05:35
RoDiMuS-XSemperfi30, hmm are you sure the previous partition was erased and not just installed on top of, i did that once05:35
brickyhey I got a problem with docky , says it requires 'composting' to work properly05:35
ne0futurI ll fond workarounds , but the best workaround will be to find a distro not using the UUID system in fstab . . .05:35
Semperfi30Yes because in Gparted I told it to format the partition05:35
RoDiMuS-Xpat5star: hmm thats weird05:35
Semperfi30Although i will say when I boot into GRUB it shows two different Ubuntu installatiosn however I don't see how that would influence anything as I pick the first one everytime05:35
RoDiMuS-XSemperfi30, what kernel are you using the 21 or 2205:36

pat5starSemperfi40: ty, but it gives me this: The requested URL "/mail/?ui=2&nobrowsercheck=1", is invalid.05:45
Semperfi40Is it because of your location?05:45

randerzanderI'm running 10.04 kernel 2.6.34 on a Thinkpad T60 with a Radeon X1400 and having video flickering and little grey horizontal lines occasionally running across the screen. Is this a driver issue? Is fglrx any better than radeon?05:46
demititanhow do i join backtrack support in #backtrack- linux05:46

demititancollectek: i need a little help understanding the basics05:47
randerzandercodebrainz, shyam - The problem exists at both frequencies listed in the Display Manager (50 and 60 Hz). VGA monitors do not experience the flickering.. just the LCD on the Thinkpad05:48
RoDiMuS-XSemperfi40, I believe so05:48
shyamranderzander: i just replaced my LCD panel on similar grounds:(05:48
Semperfi40RoDiMuS-X: Well05:48
pat5starRoDiMuS-X: I'm beginning to think this isn't a ubuntu, dns, browser, etc. issue at all but probably something to do with my stupid satellite isp05:48
=== administrator is now known as Guest49645
Semperfi40pat5star like I said something to do with your location05:49
shyamranderzander: in fact , i replaced it twice within a week..:) (second one obviously was free as it had warranty:))05:49
RoDiMuS-XSemperfi40, try #ubuntu-dev or #omg!ubuntu!05:49
codebrainzdemititan, try and find the manual for the lcd display and use those frequencies05:49
Semperfi40Thanks05:49
RoDiMuS-Xpat5star, yeah I am leaning towards ISP05:49

codebrainzpat5star, like sudbury?05:50
randerzandershyam - it seems to be an intermittent issue though.. occasionally connecting a monitor or swapping the refresh rate from 60 to 50 and back to 60 will fix the problem05:50
shyamranderzander: oh another important quesiton. does bios screen has that problem?05:50
mikey_The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.05:50

holocenereally?06:07
inzi1985holocene: do u think , the vga is heating up coz of compiz?06:07
codebrainzSemperfi40, because each kernel version would have different code managing the power stuff possibly, so it might be fixed in a newer one.  they probably though you were using your old kernel06:07

ubottudeathnight114: GNOME is the default !desktop environment on Ubuntu. To install it from Kubuntu or Xubuntu, type « sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop » in a !terminal.06:25
deathnight114I'm a noobie with ubuntu, just installed like, two hours ago06:25
Stevethepirate!gnome | deathnight11406:25
extorWhat's the syntax for creating/exporting an smb share? I know with nfs you just plop the stuff in /etc/exports but how do I do the same thing with an smb share?06:25
EbuntuStevethepirate: for some reason it doesnt work06:26
StevethepirateHeh, ok, pretty much, it's the graphical interface you are using.06:26
deathnight114how do i access it?06:26
StevethepirateEbuntu: Rather than making a new problem, fix the existing one :)06:26
deathnight114okay, so i went to system, but i don't see a sound panel06:26
ActionParsnipExtoe: you can use nautilus or /etc/samba/smb.conf06:26
AndrewX192deathnight114, if your using ubuntu your allready in gnome06:26
naiadif I have my data partitions in my fstab with ureadahead my system hangs.  removing them directly makes it bootable again.  should I be moutning them with an upstart script if I want to continue using ureadahead?06:26
EbuntuStevethepirate: ? how?06:26
trythilextor: mount -t cifs //host/share mountpoint will work, but it's generally easier to use Nautilus or Konqueror or whatnot, unless you have a need for the console06:26
RoDiMuS-Xcheck this out http://tinypic.com/r/29zy8og/606:26
linuxcan i open codeblocks download with archive manager?06:26
extortrythil, that's on the client. I want the command for the server06:26
Jon--deathnight114: Windows has the UI and the operating system together. (essentially, don't flame me). In Linux, they are seperate. Gnome is run at startup, and it is what you use to have a user interface that you can use.06:26
AndrewX192RoDiMuS-X, nice06:26
StevethepirateHrrm, I actually don't have gnome running here :/ It should be on of the options on the top. (Someone with Gnome open give this dude a hand quick)06:27
trythilextor: oh, whoops, misread06:27
RoDiMuS-XAndrewX192, working on an Android theme06:27
AndrewX192RoDiMuS-X, nice!06:27
StevethepirateRoDiMuS-X: Heh, looks nice.06:27
Jon--deathnight114: Look for Sound somewhere under Preferences or System. Probably prefs.06:27
ActionParsnipDeathnight114: you can change desktop environment to whatever you like. Linux is flexible and allows you to change rather than Windows where there is a choice of 106:27
trythilextor: in that case, you can add the share directly to /etc/samba/smb.conf06:27
EbuntuStevethepirate: should i reinstall ubuntu?06:27
Jon--I am using vim on Windows via djgpp. I would like to have the same colour scheme for vim syntax highlighting that I have on Ubuntu by default [with background=dark]. How can I do this? [I ask here because I know a lot of you guys are good with ~/.vimrc and things of that nature. VIM should be the same on the two platforms, just seems like defaults are not. Just pretend I didn't use the word...06:28
StevethepirateEbuntu: No! It's probably just a small problem.06:28
Jon--..."Windows", I dualboot ;P]06:28
codebrainzlinux, the dev. IDE?  i think it's in the repos06:28
StevethepirateJon--: #vii06:28
StevethepirateJon--: #vim06:28
StevethepirateSorry.06:28
deathnight114okay06:28
linuxide06:28
codebrainzlinux, apt-get install codeblocks06:28
deathnight114so, i still don't see a sound panel when i click on system06:28
Jon--Stevethepirate: I am there, no assistance. The channels been dead. Asked a long time ago.06:28
ActionParsnipJon--: is there a $HOME/.vimrc file or similar you can copy?06:28
extortrythil, so smb.conf is where I would tell it what my pseudo computer-name is and which directories to export as samba shares?06:28
linuxk thx06:28
holocenefor some wireless problems, it helps to connect via a wired connection then do system - administration -hardware drivers06:28
ActionParsnip!ide | codebrainz06:29
ubottucodebrainz: Programming editors/suites: Terminal-based: vi/vim, emacs - KDE: Kate, KDevelop, Quanta+, Umbrello - GNOME: gvim, gedit, anjuta, pida, monodevelop, geany - Others: eclipse, netbeans, qtcreator06:29
StevethepirateJon--: Sorry then :/ I use vi, but haven't needed that before :/06:29
trythilextor: yeah.  the smb.conf shipped with ubuntu's Samba packages contains a number of examples06:29
StevethepirateAnways, Macaroni Cheese :) brb.06:29
deathnight114oh06:29
deathnight114okay06:29
deathnight114I found it06:29
codebrainzActionParsnip, wow thanks for that newsflash!  /s06:29
Jon--ActionParsnip: Well, my ~/.vimrc doesn't have colour schemes. The issue is set background=dark in Command-Prompt, and Ubuntu. And then enable syntax highlighting and... They're different. I will have to manually configure them to match. How?06:29
deathnight114Now, what do i do?06:29
ActionParsnipExtor: yes. There are tonnes of guides. You can also set access rights too06:29
trythilextor: I'm sure there's an easier way to set it up (nautilus etc come to mind), but if you don't have access to a GUI then the Samba configuration file is the next place I'd go to06:29
Stevethepiratetrythil: You just trying to access a samba share?06:30
Jon--ActionParsnip: Not just a little different, Ubuntu has sexy colours with vim, and the vim on Windows is ugly as hell with choice of colours, I cna't live with it.06:30
extorhrmm how do I launch this nautilus06:30
deathnight114ahh06:30
trythilStevethepirate: no, extor's looking to export a share06:30
deathnight114okay06:30
extorI have gnome running right now06:30
deathnight114I got it, thank you!!!06:30
trythilextor: nautilus is the file manager06:30
StevethepirateAhh. It's not trvial afaik. I think there is evne a GUI app for it.06:30
Stevethepirate*it's trivial06:30
StevethepirateSigh, it's too early :/06:30
trythilStevethepirate: there is -- you can right-click on folders and pick sharing options from there06:30
StevethepirateYeah.06:30
StevethepirateAnd that isn't an option here/06:31
ActionParsnipJon--: is there a channel specifically for vim. They may know some tricks06:31
holoceneebuntu if you have a wired connection, connect with that, then do system - administration - hardware drivers06:31
Jon--extor: You open any "folder". Try places - home or something.06:31
trythilStevethepirate: I thought it wasn't, but it sounds like extor has access to GNOME06:31
StevethepirateActionParsnip: He's been there, just idlers.06:31
RoDiMuS-XJon--: http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Change_the_color_scheme06:31
trythilStevethepirate: so, yeah, going through the file manager is what I'd recommend06:31
Jon--ActionParsnip: I'm in there, asked ages ago, 0 replies, in fact, 0 messages in channel in about an hour. That's why I am here ;P06:31
StevethepirateYeah.06:31
ActionParsnipStevethepirate: gah!06:31
extorJon--, and then right click on it?06:31
codebrainzJon--, can you not just copy the vimrc file to the other system?06:31
brickyhey is there any way to ajust your video card settings  by chance06:31
Ebuntuholocene: ok brb06:31
StevethepirateActionParsnip: The wonders of IRC ^^.06:31
Jon--extor: Just left click. Nautilus is like Windows Explorer, it just lets you see folders and files and stuff.06:32
ActionParsnipStevethepirate: nature of the beast06:32
Jon--codebrainz: My .vimrc does not use custom colours. The defaults on Ubuntu and Windows must be different and I don't know where to find.06:32
trythilalso, broadcast for help: if anyone went from Karmic to Lucid and is experiencing significantly degraded 2D performance with an ATI video card, I'd very much like to talk with you :)06:32
=== pantsd_h` is now known as pantsd_home`
extorJon--, left click does nothing. Right click brought up a context menu where I see "share"06:32
extor"Sharing Options" rather06:33
trythilextor: yeah, that share option is what you want06:33
ActionParsnipTrythil: remove then reinstall the driver, sometimes video drivers don't survive the upgrade06:33
Jon--extor: Out of curiosity, try this. Press alt+f2, and run "nautilus"  [no quotes].  Does anything happen?06:33
deathnight114Hey does anyone know if there is an FL Studio alternative for ubuntu06:33
ActionParsnipDeathnight114: lmms06:33
codebrainzJon--, what about the system-wide one under /etc/vim/*06:33
trythilActionParsnip: I removed/reinstalled fglrx; dmesg and glxinfo report latest Catalyst driver installed06:33
deathnight114lmms?06:33
extorJon--, errr I cannot run a gnome app in the console06:33
trythilActionParsnip: however, 2D performance is still junk, and I'm not quite sure what else to poke at06:33
extorIt's just going to crash06:33
Jon--extor: Then do it from terminal. :P   My bad.06:34
linuxi can't remember if i installed ubuntu as a 32 bit or 64 bit os how would i know?06:34
ActionParsnipTrythil: that's all I got. I avoid ati like paris hilton avoids talent06:34
trythilActionParsnip: hah06:34
extorSo what will my samba name be06:34
Jon--codebrainz: I have not looked there yet. Does that contain the syntax highlighting colours?06:34
codebrainzlinux, i think uname -m will tell you06:34
RoDiMuS-Xlinux: uname -a it will have x64 near the end06:34
ActionParsnipLinux: uname -a ,if you see i686 its 32bit, if you see x86_64 its 64bit06:34
jericomDoes anyone know how to fix this login error "could not update iceauthority"06:35
goddardAre older versions of ubuntu more secure?06:35
deathnight114ActionParsnip, what is lmms?06:35
codebrainzJon--, presumably it's the default/global configuration file overriden by your personal ~/.vimrc file.  i don't use vim, but that's the way it usually works06:35
jericomIt just happened out of the blue06:35
RoDiMuS-Xgoddard: more secure or more stable06:35
linuxi686 came up so 32 bit06:35
ActionParsnipJericom: boot to root recovery mode and run: cd /home; chmod -R foo ./foo ,assuming your username is foo06:35
trythilgoddard: not really -- how secure your system is depends much more on what you choose to run and how vigilant you are about it06:36
ActionParsnipDeathnight114: an alternative to frootyloops06:36
norrecDoes anyone have any experience with setting up vpns?06:36
holocenejericom: check the forums.06:36
deathnight114ahh06:36
Jon--goddard: In some sense, perhaps, but with Ubuntu, the packages are always updating. It's not like old versions keep "safe" packages. If you want security, then try some sort of minimalistic install, like Ubuntu server and install what you need. I'd recommend 10.04, it's very stable.06:36
deathnight114okay06:36
trythilgoddard: that said, older versions of Ubuntu don't necessarily get the latest and greatest, e.g. ejabberd in the last LTS hasn't seen any updates for a long time06:36
ActionParsnipDeathnight114: like you asked for...right?06:36
trythilgoddard: and often package updates include security fixes06:36
ActionParsnip!latest | goddard06:37
ubottugoddard: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are: fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports.06:37
deathnight114ahh06:37
k1_hi, i have an ubuntu server and XP clients . i know that 192.168.0.60 is taking all our bandwidth, how can i find out who he is ? like the machine name06:37
deathnight114okay06:37
Jon--codebrainz: I'll check it out lat--- right now. Haha.ext2explore.exe you are my friend. =D06:37
holocenejericom: that was a problem for people who encrypted home directory. http://ubuntuforums.org/ or launchpad will have into06:37
goddardAt some point security holes would be fixed right?06:37
Ebuntuholocene: it says your computer is using no propeitary drivers06:37
ActionParsnipK1_: ssh onto the system and run ntop ;)06:37
goddardSo why update an OS further?06:37
trythilgoddard: because more security problems may be discovered06:37
holoceneebuntu: odd.06:38
k1_ActionParsnip, from ubuntu run ntop ?06:38
goddardUbuntu is always introducing new software wont they just lead to more issues?06:38
ActionParsnipGoddard: new features. Security in any OS will never be 100%06:38
jericomholocene: I didnt encrypt the home directory, well anything06:38
ActionParsnipK1_: from the ssh session on the offending system06:38
holoceneyou choose an option on install. you sure?06:38
Jon--goddard: The LTS releases are generally the most stable. Since the latest Ubuntu is LTS, I'd go with it.06:38
jericomYes completely06:38
holocenehow old is install?06:39
Ebuntuholocene: got any suggestions?06:39
StevethepirateAnyone here familiar with "nitrogen", [not the gas :-), the program ]06:39
ActionParsnip!info nitrogen06:39
ubottunitrogen (source: nitrogen): wallpaper browser and changing utility for X. In component universe, is extra. Version 1.5.1-1 (lucid), package size 167 kB, installed size 500 kB06:39
holoceneebuntu sorry. I would find out if wlan card is supported.06:39
jericomSince 10.04 released06:39
goddardI appreciate the answers but I am more asking from a theological stand point not deciding which version I need because I already run 10.0406:39
k1_ActionParsnip, most probably the offending system is a windows . would i have to set it up for ssh beforehand?06:39
holocenedid you run ubuntu before that?06:40
devilinahello everyone06:40
goddardyeah06:40
ActionParsnipGoddard: lts is good but karmic is more mature06:40
Jon--goddard: If you want the most secure platform, go with a flavour of BSD06:40
Jon--goddard: In general, you sacrifice security for shiny things.06:40
ActionParsnipK1_: then grab another windows system and use terminal services manager in admin tools to remotely manage the system. You can then see the sessions on the pc. You can even message them ;)06:41
onetinsoldierI know how to make my OS completely secure. reach over, pull plug from internet, done :D06:41
devilinathe front audio port is giving any output, im using a desktop....please help?? is it a driver issue?? it works fine on windows06:41
jericomDid a clean install06:41
goddardonetinsoldier you cant do that to a server06:41
ActionParsnipDevilina: what windows does is moot to linux06:41
RoDiMuS-XI got a channel question, Do you recommend upgrade from previous Ubuntu installation or fresh install?06:41
k1_ActionParsnip, is there no option to do that from ubuntu, basically i just want to know the computer's name06:41
onetinsoldiergoddard: i know. it was a little joke06:41
ActionParsnipK1_: nslookup ip.address.of.pc06:42
devilinalol action..please help..i want to desperately get the front audio jack to work :(06:42
holocenejericom: ice authority has bugs but I thought they were put to rest in lucid. I would check the forums.06:42
norrecbut when it comes down to it, just about any version of ubuntu is more secure than windows, and i that alone should keep you pretty safe till the amount of windows machines drop lol06:42
tyler_I have the most secure computer of all! A commodore 64 that sits in the corner!06:42
RoDiMuS-Xkl_: nslookup ipaddress06:42
k1_ActionParsnip, thanks06:42
Jon--goddard: If you want to run a server, go with FreeBSD or OpenBSD. I don't mean to badmouth Linux, they are damn secure, but those two are used when you want absolutely the best, and safest you can get.06:42
Jon--goddard: You will sacrifice some functionality and ease of use though. Your call.06:43
goddardIs it that different?06:43
jericomholocene: What is ice authority anyway?06:43
ActionParsnipJon--: it's a known fact that bsd is usually more secure06:43
tyler_goddard: Yeah, I'm going to have to also provide a shout out for BSD. Security = rock solid.06:43
holoceneAre openbsd people pretty friendly?06:43
devilinashould i do something to the alsa-base.conf file?:(06:43
tyler_holocene, Hop on their channel?06:44
Jon--goddard: See ActionParsnip's reply. Yes. In the security community, those are very rarely found exploits. I don't remember which one, one of those two, hasn't been a remote exploit in years. It's definitely at the sacrifice of making your life a living hell in setup though. Limited.06:44
holocenejericom: has to do with passwords and security. It was a nightmare for me.06:44
paintedhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goobuntu06:44

holocenetyler: good idea. I've heard things.06:44

holocenejericom good luck you will get it.06:45
daddymommyhow can i confirm whether I have a dialup/phone modem in my comp?06:45
Jon--goddard: It comes down to choice. Is Ubuntu server "secure", yes. Is it bulletproof? No. Is even FreeBSD bulletproof? Well, it's possible that it isn't, but it's the best you can get if you are concerned.06:45
ramonhelp please06:45
siriusnovaguys how in the holy heck do you disable services from starting on bootup in lucid06:46
Jon--goddard: OpenBSD is also good. Do some research.06:46
RoDiMuS-Xsiriusnova, use the start up manager06:46
siriusnovathere is no start up manager06:47
siriusnovawhere is it06:47
tyler_goddard: You could go and ask a BSD guy on a BSD channel as of why their OS is more secure then Linux. You'll get a biased answer of course, but there will probably be some useful information given out.06:47
onetinsoldiersiriusnova: unfortunately, i think they dropped the gui for doing that with Lucid/upstart. but you can look at man page for  update-rc.d, and i think the chkconfig package might be another one to have a look at06:47

devilinayes..works on windows holocene...its working..so no probs there06:50
Jon--goddard: The main reason is philosophy. Nearly all the features FreeBSD has, except for a few key ones, are available in Linux. Key: kernel security levels. Includes better IDS (intrusion detection system), etc. The main reason? Their codebase. Linux moves forward, BSD stays where it knows it is 100% safe. Makes your life harder, but it offers better security.06:50
Jon--goddard: [I know I said main reason twice, different default packages etc differ DUE to philosophy though ;p]06:51

codebrainzzetheroo, run pwmconfig07:09
codebrainzit will tell you if it can do it or not07:09

AndrewX192How come I can't add gnome-panel to RGBA blacklist?07:11
RoDiMuS-Xnight all07:11
ActionParsnipTwain_32: there is no single answer to that as the config will vary wildly from app to app. Some apps run well and some will even refuse to install07:11
codebrainzcodebrainz, what i pasted is what i get, not supported here, can't help.07:11
magicianlordQuestion: What is the preferred fstab mount option for solid state disk and why: noatime or relatime07:11

ActionParsnipMagicianlord: http://tldp.org/LDP/solrhe/Securing-Optimizing-Linux-RH-Edition-v1.3/chap6sec73.html07:13
codebrainzzetheroo, google for lm-sensors pwmconfig07:13
codebrainzor use bing, google sucks now07:13
zetheroook07:14
clint-zetheroo:  theres  echo commands you can use as well07:14
zetheroowhy does google suck now?07:14
clint-I would do echo commands on fan state files on some hp notebooks and thinkpads, but they also have that thinkpad control deal07:14
zetherooclint-: yes I use the Thinkpad Fan Control app on my Thinkpads ....07:15
Twain_32ok guys i understand it! but how can i download required items and where i must put them /07:15
Doctehzetheroo: occasionally its given me results sorted in a crap way while it gives my friend the results sorted better :-/07:15
magicianlordthanks man07:15
clint-like example, full rpm,  echo 0 > /proc/acpi/fan/state07:15
codebrainzzetheroo, they tweaked it to death, removed country options, definition, the search results are worse, it looks lame, and there's a new bar on the left that makes it not work on my netbook07:15
ActionParsnipMagicianlord: i'd use noatime as the files will be written less and make the device last longer (ssd have limited write cycles)07:15
clint-I been debating on which thinkpad to get again.. sent a T61 back,07:15
zetherooDocteh: I see07:15
clint-the T410 I like, but some things on it I don't like which is was more like the T61, but with that touchpad though, however I got a Logitech VX Revolution so.. don't matter07:16
zetheroocodebrainz: i see what you mean ...07:16
ActionParsnipTwain_32: usually www.dll-files.com is needed but again, there is no single answer07:16
magicianlordActionParsnip: and what abou using relatime instead of noatime?07:16
clint-but ze07:16
clint-zetheroo:07:16
clint-you can issue echo commands to control diff levels :)07:16
clint-0 - 707:16
clint-should be, just all depends07:16
zetherooclint-: how do these echo commands work?07:17
Ebuntuholocene: i FINALLY got it to work07:17
Ebuntu:D07:17
clint-who me what you have for...  ls /proc/acpi/fan/07:17
zetherooclint-: so you scrapped the Thinkpad for a Logitech?07:17
clint-no07:17
clint-I sent the T61 back because the Top LCD Cover was warped07:17

codebrainzmagicianlord, noatime stops it from writing the access bits on each file each time it's accessed, relatime causes it to only update the access bits if they are different07:19
codebrainzi think07:19
ActionParsnipEdbuntu: if you always use the same wired connection you can use /etc/network/interfaces and do away completely with all gui network management apps07:19
magicianlordcodebrainz: i dont really understand the difference. i just want to know which to set on my ssd netbook07:19
erihi07:20
ActionParsnipMagicianlord: i'd shoot for noatime. It'll make it faster too :)07:20
Ebuntulol now my sound wont work07:20

codebrainzzetheroo, under /proc/acpi/fan, if there are fans in that dir, by writing the fan speed/level to them, you can control the speed07:38
nandersonhi room07:38
clint-zetheroo: ,   list me your /proc/acpi/fans or fan07:38
clint-then what you'll do for example is like  echo 0 > /proc/acpi/fan/C20F/state07:39
zetherooclint-: it's empty :(07:39
clint-that would turn the fan or fans to full rpm07:39
codebrainzclint-, zetheroo , isn't there an ibm subdir under acpi, specific to thinkpads?  I don't have one07:39

baskakSmokeyD: there are some gutenprint packages installed. and the printer properties says: CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.5 Simplified. what do you reckon?09:57
SmokeyDbaskak: with me I have also isntalled the foomatic/gutenprint-ijs drivers which are also listed with your printer (besides the cups+gutenprint ones). I think that requires the foomatic-db-gutenprint package to be installed. Maybe try that. I wouldn't know which driver would be best of the two and I have no way to check.10:01
SmokeyDbaskak: also make sure you have openprinting-ppds installed10:02

lightbrickoAnyone know if Intrepid repositories have changed lately? Like today or yesterday?10:06
akamausgreetings10:07
jpdslightbricko: Nope.10:07
akamausI need to run a job periodically, can Upstart be used for that?10:08
jpdslightbricko: And Intrepid is beyond it's end of life, so you should upgrade. :)10:08
lightbrickojpds: I'm using an old package, "GPSBabel 1.3.5" from the Intrepid universe repo. I need it for a specific application (but I use Karmic). But today it is no longer installed, an in synaptic it is marked with red color without version numbe.r10:09
lightbrickojpds: And since it's the first day of the month today I suspected that the repo was ended or something like that.10:10
jpdslightbricko: My mirror logs don't show anything changing in intrepid.10:10
jpdslightbricko: And nothing about gpsbabel.10:10

sunson(I don't have the list of packages as it was _before_ the upgrade)10:12
jpdslightbricko: Hmm, only recent ref to gpsbabel I can find is from May 31st 17:52UTC.10:14
baskakSmokeyD: changed the driver to foomatic gutenprint (full) and the problem's gone. thanks! it also has much more appropariate options. is it a bug that ubuntu by default installas the wrong driver?10:14
wrongiteapache mod svn (dav_svn)  on ubuntu 9. Cannot view file content from browser, it ask me to download only. How do I fix it?10:14
lightbrickojpds: That is too new for my application. I'm using PyTrainer with my sports watch, and for some reason it only works with gpsbabel 1.3.5 from 2008. They haven't made it work with newer versions for some reason.10:16
jpdslightbricko: And that was just the timestamp on the gpsbabel/ folder changing.10:16
krazkiddsunson: try 'sudo tail -n /var/log/apt/term.log' where n is the number of lines to print. This will print the last n lines of apt's log. You can start there.10:16
SmokeyDbaskak: no there are different drivers for different printers. For this one printer, you need another one that the default. That is why openprinting.org was setup. There are also printers for which no drivers are available. It is in the end all up to the printer vendor to support their printer for linux. Quite some vendors do. But I am glad yours works now. Glad to be of help.10:17

ubottuUsually, 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.10:34

Northwoodsi'm trying to write it to DVD , is that an issue ?10:38
llutzNorthwoods: that a cd-image to be burned on cd10:39
rocket16Northwoods: You can extract it in Windows (using extractor) and run Wubi from it, or better to burn to blank CD to make your own Ubuntu CD. USB is there via Unetbootin, but it is troublesome.10:39
magikcOk. For my new CLEAN desktop I am going to need a wallpaper. Any ideas what kind i should use?10:39

LaibcomsNorthwoods, and yes, you need to go to your cmos/bios and set your DVD as the first in the boot sequence.10:42
fredlrocket16, all the accounts have the 'Enabled' checkmark set10:43
rocket16fredl: To set your connection to start automatically, right-click network applet, and then, click "Edit" and select your connection, and click edit button. There, check "Connect Automatically" box in the connection, and click ok.10:43

NorthwoodsOR clean install through system boot10:46
llutz!clone | plouffe10:46
ubottuplouffe: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate10:46
rocket16fredl: It will do it, if you have Empathy selected to start at startup, and the network to be connected automatically at startup, Once, you set this, Empathy will automatically show you online at startup.10:46
fredlrocket16, okay, but it does not do that.10:46

rocket16fredl: But, did you make changes, that your System will automatically connect to net on startup? Otherwise, if your System isn't online, Empathy can't be online10:47
darkViruzhi one question is there one speziel pw for my root? i havent choose one10:47
rww!noroot10:47
ubottuWe do not support having a root password set. See !root and !wfm for more information.10:47
rww!root10:47
ubottuDo 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/RootSudo10:47
LaibcomsNorthwoods, it's ok to use WUBI but Ubuntu will be installed "inside" Windows, as a "folder" to be exact.10:47
rocket16!wfm | darkViruz10:47
ubottudarkViruz: Common Sense: Just because you can, does not mean you should (and especially recommend to others). Think before you do. "Works for me" does not mean it is ok. The latest version of everything is not always useful if you aim for stability. Please see http://geekosophical.net/random/worksforme/10:48
Northwoodsaah , i think fresh install would be better10:48
LaibcomsNorthwoods, but to login to Ubuntu, you have to reboot and choose Ubuntu.10:48
fredlrocket16, no, the network is up and running and after I login on GNOME, empathy starts up automatically but it doesn't allow me to go online nor does it do it automatically10:48

rocket16fredl: I think, simply reinstalling Empathy will help (I use Pidgin, so not much familiar with Empathy).10:52
fredlrocket16, Hmm, maybe it's not empathy that I'm talking about but the 'Indicator Applet', does that make any difference?10:52
rocket16fredl: Indicator Applet? I see, Indicator applet does not mean Empathy, it is just a notification on what services are running on your system10:53
rocket16fredl: See, go to System-Preferences-Startup Applications, and there, select "Add" button, and insert the name as Anything, but the command as: empathy10:54
rocket16fredl: This will help to solve your problem. From the next time, whenever you log in, Empathy will be online.10:54
fredlrocket16, okay, sorry about that then. So the Indicator Applet. when I click on it shows 'Chat Accounts'. When I choose that, I see my chat accounts in a window called 'Messaging and VOIP accounts'. All the accounts there shows as 'Offline - Status is set to offline'. What I'd like to know is how these will go online automatically10:55
fredlrocket16, do I need empathy if I want to do what I described above?10:55
rwwfredl: yes10:56
rocket16fredl: You need that if you wish to start Empathy at startup. Well, your problem is not so hard probably. Do you see in the top-right corner, next to the Shutdown button (to left) there is a button with your username written on it?10:56
rwwfredl: click the envelope icon on your menu bar, click Chat10:57
zaryazany program look like yahoo messenger in ubuntu?10:57
fredlrocket16, oh okay I guess I do huh? I just started up empathy from the command line and it makes the indicator applet go online10:57
Laibcomszaryaz, Gyachi10:57
rocket16fredl: If yes, click on on it, and select Available. And yes, if that be so, then addimg: empathy command in Startup apps will settle the problem.10:58

ubottuUsually, 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.11:11
