connermcdKalEl: Here is a website with information on editing your fstab - http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html00:00
KrisDouglasSylbot, there is a chance if you had a third party driver installed, it will need recompiling after an update00:00
deventio7ubutom: it has a 100% connection apparently, and when connected to an external network adapter the ping is much better00:00
sylbotBrianE, what?00:00
sylbothow do i tell00:00
soadkombuchaJordan_U: I still cannot connect. I'm going to reboot into windows for now, and then I'll try to figure this out later. Thank you VERY much for all the help you've been giving me00:00
Jordan_Usoadkombucha: The dialog that comes up should have the correct encryption type for the network selected by default00:00
KrisDouglasSylbot, do you have an Nvidia, intel or ATI card?00:00
deventio7ubutom: it's probably a problem with the hardware then, right?00:00
connermcdFlomaster: What do you mean?00:00
sylbotKrisDouglas, yes00:01
soadkombuchaJordan_U: It didn't pull any networks.00:01
BrianEsylbot: You'd probably notice if it was; items on the screen would look unusually large00:01
KrisDouglaswhich one00:01
sylbotKrisDouglas, Nvida GTX 26000:01
bithuntersylbot, did you install dkms or updated the kernel without it?00:01
Jordan_Usoadkombucha: You're welcome.00:01
KalElconnermcd, thanks... strange - my fstab only has two entries although i have numerous partitions, all available on Places00:01
soadkombuchaJordan_U: That's my problem. I'll just try again later. Thank you for all the help, hopefully when I go over to my friend's later he can help me with this.00:01
sylbotbithunter, i don't know00:01
ubutomdeventio7, could be many things, have you tried what happens if the ipod touchs wireless is off?00:01
sylbotBrianE, no nothing is large00:01
KrisDouglasok, sylbot, most likely you need to go download the latest linux driver, and follow the instructions given to install it, it's quite simple00:01
KalElconnermcd, ntfs partitions are not there in fstab00:01
KrisDouglassylbot, http://download.nvidia.com00:01
sylbotKrisDouglas, I have the latest driver00:01
BrianEsylbot: There's not much I can do to help you, to be honest... If all else fails, I presume you also have an onboard graphics card? You could try checking your BIOS settings to make sure your GTX260 is set as the primary card...00:02
=== administrator is now known as Guest51711
BrianEsylbot: Because that output suggests that the GTX260 isn't being used :-\00:02
sylbotBrianE, I don't have one00:02
sylbotThe system can "see" it00:02
sylbotthe GTX00:02
KrisDouglasbut you are not getting acceleration?00:02
connermcdKalEl: In synaptic, or by apt-get you can install a little tool written in python, called "Pysdm"00:03
connermcd(Python Storage Device Manager).00:03
Flomasterconnermcd:  when downloading large files from megaupload they are often broken into several pieces say 40 200mb pieces I need to take all 40 URLs and drop them into a download manager so it downloads one after another00:03
bithuntersylbot, please pastebin the output of lsmod also00:03
BrianEDo you see 'NVIDIA X Server Settings' under System -> Administration, sylbot?00:03
connermcdKalEl: Then "System->Administration->Storage Device Manager"00:03
KrisDouglasGuys, is it possible to turn off the "has joined" and "has quit" messages?00:03
sylbotBrianE, no00:03
KalElconnermcd, sounds good, will try out00:03
BrianEStrange, it was installed when I activated my NVIDIA driver... Could be relevant00:04
KrisDouglasSylbot - driver isn't installed00:04
ubutomKrisDouglas, in xchat right click the channel tab and select hide join/part messages, in other clients there are commands for that00:04
KrisDouglasi'm using Smuxi00:04
genoskillwheres a irc tutorial or guide00:04
BrianEsylbot: The driver isn't installed00:04
kostkonFlomaster, install Tucan00:05
_schism_hey guys can you watch netflix on ubuntu? looking through google now and I am a bit confused00:05
BrianEsylbot: Go back into Hardware Drivers, make sure it's activated, and that you have definitely restarted (the restart isn't optional, the driver -will not- be active without restarting)00:05
connermcdFlomaster: Don't know anything off hand... will look around for you00:05

xorwhyxchat-gnome is contaminated i concur00:13
BrianEyahshua: I liked Firestarter00:13

bithunteryahshua, firestarter is pretty easy to use00:14
KalEltrue, don't see the point of xchat-gnome - even the documentation says that though all configs are present in the file, they have been removed from ui to create xchat-gnome!00:14
BrianEFirestarter is nice, simple and clean :)00:14

connermcdBrail translator USB connection00:15
Keith-BlindUserI'm a pretty good touch-typest, actually. It doesn't mean that I"m perfect, but I do know how ot type despite not having vision. I've ever got Ubuntu talking with Orca.00:15
Keith-BlindUserWoops.. :) I meant to. :D00:16
BrianEKeith-BlindUser: Much respect, that's rather... admirable, in an odd way00:16
Keith-BlindUserOn a windows machine presently, but yes I'm still able to use Linux. The only problem with Ubuntu apps and  the Orca screen reader/magnifyer, is that the applications must be written in GTK.00:16
bithunteryahshua, sudo apt-get install firestarter00:16
IamReckWohoo flash crashed X!00:17
sylbotHow do I restart the X server00:17
collectekweird ... I am running streamtuner and use shoutcast .... now it is not loading any streams.....what could have changed/can fix this .... hmm00:17
IamReckCtrl Alt Backspace sylbot00:17
Keith-BlindUserSo if firestarter for isntance, or SKype, or other QT3 apps come into play with Orca, QT3 is badly inaccessible to the blind.00:17
Flomasterkostkon: I have it installed, but where I input my megaupload info i have my user name, my password, and an enable spot all need to be filled out i am not sure what to type in the enable spot00:17

IamReckBrianE, does that work on 9.10 also?00:17
BrianEIamReck: Mm, there's some package that re-enables it, but it's disabled by default00:18
BrianEThere is no difference, IIRC, both restart X00:18
IamReckAnyone out there using a Dell XPS m1330 with 10.04 and Windows 7 Dual Booting?00:18
kostkonFlomaster, view → prefs → service configuration, select the megaupload plugin and then press the info button00:18

yahshuabithunter can u tell me an anti-spyware00:20
KalElthanks connermcd. i remember it was not like that with the previous version of ubuntu. i will try to create the fstab on my own and see if it's working. i don't quite like the idea of mount points magically working for a normal user with no mention at fstab...00:20
Psi-JackSuck a program, eh? ;)00:20
kostkonFlomaster, :)00:20
Keith-BlindUserThe most accesible client I have found for the Orca screen reading program under Ubuntu is the Pidgon client. I'm using a accessible modified Ubuntu Lucid project called VInux. Have you folks heard of that project?00:20
IamReckKrisDouglas, I'm considering single booting, but occasionally i need Windows 7 for things I can't do in a VM.00:20
BrianEyahshua: I don't really like to say this, but Ubuntu isn't like Windows -- You won't need an "anti-Spyware" application, nor an antivirus, nor a firewall for the usage you're thinking of00:20
KrisDouglasIamReck, yeah i was the same :)00:20

Keith-BlindUserVinux, google for it. You'll like it. It's intended to make Ubuntu a bit more accessible to people with visual impairments. :)00:21
yahshuawell why do some linux platforms come with anti spyware installed like pclinux os00:21
Keith-BlindUserAnd specific tweeks not available in Ubuntu by default such as Orca automatically coming up, where as the user must make it do so in Ubuntu, etc.00:21
SlidingHornyahshua: as it stands, you really don't need an AV program, but if you want to protect your windows-using friends that are not necessarily as bright as they should be when it comes to opening files, you can...just to make sure you dont send them anything bad00:22
IamReckKrisDouglas, Thanks! Just debating whether or not to do the upgrade tonight, and whether or not to reformat my /home directory and bring it up to shiny new ext4 in stead of ext200:22
Psi-JackErr, well, Flomaster did anyway. heh00:22
Keith-BlindUserYour using ext2! Isn't that a slow file system?00:22
BrianEIamReck: You're still using Ext2?! Format it with Ext4, it's shiny and has cookies :-P00:22
Keith-BlindUserALl I have to say about that is Youch.00:22
yahshuaand if i accidentaly give permission to a prgram to run it could be spyware00:22
KrisDouglasIn the early days I was having EXT4 issues, but now, it is working more than perfectly. All my NAS's at work work perfectly too00:22
connermcdKalEl: NTFS partitions can have a password ON THE PARTITION, but externally there's not a lot of purpose in forbidding users access00:22
KrisDouglashighly, highly recommend ext400:22
FlomasterPsi-Jack: say what?00:22
CaptainTrekIamReck:  definitely bring it up to Ext4, it might not really work with Ext2 and 10.04. at least not well00:23
Keith-BlindUserNas, isn't that network staorage file system or something?00:23
yahshuaand i have one more question what is the checkdsk command00:23
connermcdKalEl: My windows partition has a password on startup so when I mount it in Ubuntu it requires it00:23

hiexpolucid bug hmmmmmmmmmm never ever heaed of that00:38
kr3wubutom: system volume information can also be found on win drives which don't have an OS install00:38
rascal999but, we've determined it's a nautilus issue because ls is relatively instant00:38
ubutomkr3w, that'S what I said, an empty partition or drive00:39
gelacacineubutom, yes, rather, i only have 3 partitions, (that one was /dev/sda1 which was my large windows partition), /dev/sda2 is too small to be the partition, and sda3 is linux (according to f-disk)00:39
durtrascal999, if there's a large number of small files in it then yes it will take a long time, are you running anything writing a large numer of files to that dir?00:39
ubutomgelacacine, your windows partition should be /dev/sda1/00:39
kr3wubutom: if there is data but no OS, you treat that as empty?00:39
hiexpomaybe i am safe on karmic    :)00:39
Gneakr3w: in looking at the manpage for growisofs, there is a section that explains where to look for such answers. Have you looked at the source code?00:39

kr3wGnea: no because i wouldn't understand it00:40
ubutomkr3w, if you consider system volume information as data...00:40
Gneakr3w: right, because comments written in english explain nothing...00:40
durtrascal999, thats a rational reason then.00:40
gelacacinekr3w, does that mean my windows partition no longer has windows installed?00:40

siddhionubutom yes i do. it is like this pulsing signal icon01:15
whileimhereHi. I am used to using the tab feature in the gnome-terminal program. After a few updates it seems to have stopped working. Is there an option that will allow me to turn it back on?01:15
ubutomsiddhion, I think it'S related to networkmanager, anyway, there you see the available wireless network and it will also notify when it is connected01:15
ubutomyeah, siddhion, enter that key ;)01:15
siddhionubutom ok i will try and then come back....i dont have access to two computers now...time to reboot to lucid...thanks ubutom... be back soon01:16

kmullinsHey, I just did a clean install of v10.04 and am only able to get the installer and the live CD to run using the noapic and acpi=off options. However, GRUB 2 didn't save those options. I tried to manually edit <hard drive>/etc/default/grub and added those options but it didn't seem to affect anything. I'm not sure how to run the "update-grub" from the Live CD to affect my installed partition01:26
Zelozelosi sometimes goto www.movie-links.tv and for some reason lately, well since ive gotten my internet back when i click on one of the links under a movie it seems 2 do nothing, if i middle click it opens the same page in a new browser, any ideas ?01:26

ubottukmullins: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since Karmic. For more information and troubleshooting on GRUB2 please refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub201:27
hoontekeFongy: well, you shouldn't have to.  If you do *need* to reboot, that's not a credit to Ubuntu's stability.01:28
ubutomsabqat9, you can'T use 64 bit if the processor doesn't support it01:28
hoontekeFongy: next thing you might do is look through System->Administration->Synaptic.  Look for gstreamer and mp301:28
b14ckHi all. I'm running ubuntu server 9.01 (x64), and for some reason, whenever I use apt-get or aptitude to install packages, I get numerous errors that look like this: http://pastie.org/1002182 How can I get rid of this? There must be a way.01:28
Fongyhoonteke - the reason for my rebootings is nothing to do with ubuntu - i have a bad heat sync in my laptop :(01:28
hoontekeFongy: I always forget, but it's gstreamer and ... ugly or bad plaugins.  I'm not sure.01:28

ZelozelosDmstrdj, what r the issues?01:29
Fongynot enough time to have a fiddle01:29
orenwhat packages do i need to support GeForce 6200?01:30
hoontekeoren: Ubuntu should detect it automatically via System->Adminisration->Hardware Drivers01:30
orenhoonteke: correct but i use ubuntu without gnome.01:30
kmullinsYeah I checked out that WIKI already. It says I Have to run update-grub but when I try to run it from the Live CD, I get an error saying grub can not be found01:30
DmstrdjZelozelos  its just  that i cant get gparted to unlock the windows part01:31

wildbatkmullins, you just need to mount the drive and edit the drive grub file not the LiveCD one ~ and do update as if it said in Installing grub2 from LiveCD01:31
CaptainTrek_2:  try using sudo01:31
orenhoonteke: lxde01:31
_2CaptainTrek from the menu ?01:31
ZelozelosDmstrdj, is there enough space? and are you manually config the partitions or letting the installer do its thing?01:31
SlidingHornoren: i'm running lxde but didnt catch your question...what's up?01:31
orenhoonteke: it might be as simple as nvidia-170 or something similar.01:31
_2CaptainTrek or do you know the command it called ?01:31
Dmstrdjubuntu only allows me to erase or manually config01:31
Dmstrdji tried that01:32

ubutomoren, try 'sudo jockey-gtk' or 'sudo jockey-text'01:32
orenhoonteke: ubutom ok. let me trry01:32
CaptainTrek_2: you could always make a temporary launcher onto the desktop or somewhere and prepend "gksudo" in front of the command to run it.01:32
SlidingHornoren: pretty sure that lxde uses the same hardware driver program -- only it's under preferences01:32
hoontekeoren: well, you *could* go download the drivers direct from nvidia, but I suggest sticking with the ubuntu scripts for installation01:32

Dmstrdjtrying to dual boot and the installer cant make it past the partion sizing01:35
_2CaptainTrek still fails to launch, only no error message at all01:35
ZelozelosDmstrdj, you will need some advanced partition settings then, but im not knowledgeable enough to help w that, do you have plenty of free space within both partitions, if so try and srink one of thme, grow the other, then split the enlarged one for ubuntu...good luck w that all OH and dont forget to defrag n everything 1st01:35
CaptainTrek_2: then i dont know what's going on, sorry.01:35
hoontekeDmstrdj: it's my guess that Vista didn't clean up after itself on a boot or to.  You may be able to boot to Vista, schedule a disk check of some kind, reboot *again*, then shut down after it's done it's business01:35
_2CaptainTrek i think i know.   gksu/do uses user name "root" doesn't it ?01:36
hoontekeDmstrdj: at that point, I have a hunch the Ubuntu installer will have better luck,01:36
orenhoonteke: ubutom ok. jockey-gtk told me 'no proprietry drivers are in use'01:36

ZelozelosDmstrdj, however i havent heard of anyone tripplebooting w vista, 7 and ubuntu....kinda cool if it works good luck01:36
_2CaptainTrek that's the problem.    it should use user id "0"   not user name "root"01:36
hoontekeZelozelos: I do.  Works just find01:37
_2CaptainTrek user name root is not uid 0 on any of my systems01:37

Zelozeloshoonteke, maybe you can help him out then ;)01:37
ubutomoren, hm, does it let you choose some?01:37
orenubutom: no01:37
hoontekeoren: and did it find any drivers to automatically install?  If not, it's my guess that jockey-gtk doesn't know how to do it.  If that's the case, you may have to go download the linux driver direct from nvidia's website01:37
Dmstrdjand trying gparted now but stil locked01:37
wildbatDmstrdj, so it freeze up?01:38
hoontekeoren: it's not a hard process, but you'll have to run the shell script from one of your TTY terminals (Ctrl+Alt+F1) should get you there01:38
Dmstrdjits not really triple01:38
ubutomoren, hm, no man-page for jockey, weird01:38

ubutomsiddhion, and have you entered that key you mentioned?01:59
goplexianI'm having a problem with a zip file not unzipping, I know the archive is valid since it matches the md5sum value01:59
JackWaughgoplexian, are you using the archive manager with gnome?02:00
goplexianbut when I do `unzip file.zip` I get End-of-central-directory signature not found.02:00
JackWaughgoplexian, hmm, maybe you have a hosed-up zip file.02:00
goplexianJackWaugh, I'm using unzip, when I use file-roller it hangs for like 3 minutes then comes back and tells me it cant extract. The file in question is about 9gb in size02:01
hoontekedoes anyone know how to use chromium-browser with --user-data-dir (i.e. profiles), and register an instance with the desktop so that when I click a hyperlink in other appliciations (e.g. thunderbird, pidgin) it opens a new tab instead of trying to open the default chromium profile?02:01
siddhionubutom so I noticed that at the get go I am disconnected. so I click the Network Wireless Icon and a pop up window appears saying "Unlock Keyring" at first I thought I had to enter that 20 bit hex key... but eventually I realized that this window jsut wanted my Ubuntu password that I created during installation. After I entered that password I start up Firefox02:01
goplexianJackWaugh, I've downloaded it twice, and both times it matches the md5sum so I do not think it is a problem with the file, as I said it is a 9 gig file02:01
ubutomsiddhion, and did it work?02:01
ubutomsiddhion, not sure about that keyring thing, I don't use it02:02
hoontekegoplexian: are you sure that the version of unzip you have can handle a file that size?02:02
DaSkreechTrying to find out how I can find out if someone has run a script with sudo02:02
JackWaughgoplexian, maybe whoever published the file made a bad zip, then took the checksum, and published that as well.  So that would mean you're getting a good download of a bad file that someone published that way.02:03
DaSkreechFrom inside of the script02:03

unopgoplexian, does unzip give you an error?02:03

dean_Or virus's for that matte02:04
hoontekemilesd: though note that it wont' take effect until you reboot02:04
siddhionubutom I turned off offline mode thinking that it would work but nothing...then i clicked the "Problem Loading Page " button and a pop-up came up saying "Wireless Network Authentication Required". This is the window that shows  my ""Wireless Security: WPA & WPA2 Personal"" and below that it shows ""Password:  (here i enter that 20bit hex key)""02:04

ubutomsiddhion, it does it for some seconds and then connects02:06

Flannelevilsherpa: No worries02:06
hoontekemilesd: then just the /dev/sda2 is fine.  the UUID is meant for administrators and power users who have to do this stuff via scripts.  For one off jobs, /dev/sda2 (or whatever your partition is) is just fine.02:07

When I run the same command from the command line, no problems.02:07
milesdhoonteke: i know you can can run swapon or so, i'll just reboot. I'm just not sure if I need to put that long string of id number in the fstab swap line, or if i can just put sda2, which is my swap partition02:07
distaticaany other steps I need?02:07
siddhionubutom ok because mine never stops that animation...makes sense since i can not connect...constantly it tries to connect02:07
evilsherpajust pulled an awesome double of Kenyan "aa" i need to try to get this hdd cranking02:07
milesdhoonteke: oops, sry, missed your last02:07
evilsherpai appear to have an additional hdd that isnt showing up in system02:07
ubutomsiddhion, try restarting your wireless router, might work02:08
hoontekeevilsherpa: that may be if you have a hardware raid controller02:08
milesdthanks i get it now - sort of :) but i'll be OK02:08
siddhionubutom so when i run System Monitor ...Network History is a dead flat line...no activity there02:08
goplexianI've downloaded this file in the past, and it has worked, and now I've downloaded it twice and it doesn't work, I'm getting frustrated with this. Anyone have some unzip magic for me? Or are there alternative unzip back-ends that I could try?02:08
orenhoonteke: i see 6200 on this list -02:08
klandwehrsiddhion I assumed you entered your wireless network password02:08
uLinuxtell me a good keyboard shortcut to open the terminal :)02:08
orenhoonteke: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/lucid/i386/nvidia-glx-185/185.18.36-0ubuntu902:08
ubutomsiddhion, if its not connected thats no wonder02:08

orenhoonteke: do u think i can install this?02:08
Fongyhoonteke - thank you for your help mate02:09
hoontekeoren: yes.02:09
siddhionklandwehr you mean the 20 bit password?02:09
Fongyi will keep doing some research02:09
orenhoonteke: ok.02:09
hoontekeFongy: np.  sounds good02:09
siddhionubutom right02:09
Fongycya all!02:09
hoontekeyou'll soon be the expert for others, Fongy02:09
Fongyi hope so :P02:09
ubutomsiddhion, go to netwrok connections in system - settings and make the connection available for every user, so you won't need to enter a key for keyring anymore02:09
hoontekeevilsherpa: hmm, well, without being an expert in this area, I usually have to individually figure out what's going on02:09
unoptim__, my guess is you could try adjusting  $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/Terminal/terminalrc  - the rc file for xfce4-terminal to get it to cd to the dir you want02:09
kurtisCan someone take a look at this page (it's small) and tell me what it means by "update Linux kernel from lucid-updates" for 10.04?02:09
hoontekeevilsherpa: so... roundabout way of saying "good luck!"02:09

ubutomsiddhion, as a matter of fact, yeah, I have, just 2 days ago with my laptop which had this usb-stick to connect ;)02:16

Zoffix_How do I bring up that window where I can select ALSA, Pulse, etc for the sound?02:18
LinuxWayi have a alsa question to:)02:18
ubutomsiddhion, could be, but there is also the chance it is because of the key, you might want to try to set up yourself another one02:18
LinuxWaythis one i don know02:18
siddhionubutom interesting idea....how would i go about doing that? is there a guide online?02:19
LinuxWaybut i like to know to:)02:19
ubutomsiddhion, I also experienced some problems when I just used a really, really long key consisting of characters and numbers, it just didn't work with that, so I used a short sentence and didn'T have that much problems then02:19
LinuxWaywhere are the alsa specialist?02:20
Zoffix_LinuxWay, just ask your question, man.02:20
LinuxWayi have a 1212m02:20
LinuxWayinstalked alsa drivers02:20
LinuxWaybut now i don;t see my headset and mic anymore02:21
ubutomsiddhion, I'm sure there are several guides out there, however, maybe you can also ask the people who sold you the hardware, sicne they have set it up02:21
LinuxWaywhen i instaled ubuntu it was the other way around02:21
ubutomsiddhion, I think there are also some password-generators in the web02:21
LinuxWayso how do i make/get my headset back?02:22
Zoffix_Maaan.. I wanna watch a movie...  >_< I can't believe I'm having a Windows-like problem on a Linux box :(*02:24
ubutomsiddhion, I'm not sure if the password was just wrong that I picked, or if it was too ling and the router couldn't handle it because of that :)02:24
bastid_raZor!medibuntu > Zoffix_ this fixes things for most02:24
ubottuZoffix_, please see my private message02:24
ubutom*ling = long02:24

norm_Zoffix: I just reboot when I lose my audio like that02:26
Zoffix_norm_, I rebooted once already hoping it would fix it :)02:26
siddhionubutom  so it could be the password i have is not being processed? that is so bizarre02:26
Zoffix_Hmr..I think I'll try another reboot...02:27
ubutomsiddhion, well, some hardware isn't what it claims to be...02:27
siddhionubutom and you are talking about my router?02:27
ubutomsiddhion, no, in general, just because hardware has a feature on paper doesn't mean it always can really perform it.02:28
anigmahow come ubuntu doesn't come with a root password by default?02:29
ubutomanigma, sudo is used for that02:29
hufxanigma: the root pw is your user pw02:29
ubutomanigma, and you can also always set one02:29
siddhionubutom  so i basically the simplest way to resolve this would be to contact my ISP and have them come and change the HEX key?02:29
unopanigma, it's a design decision.02:30
IdleOne!root | anigma02:30
ubottuanigma: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo02:30
JackWaughanigma, there isn't very often a need to actually log in as root.02:30
unophufx, that's not correct.02:30

unoppepePlu, nice02:30
banker247i permaroot02:30
hufxunop: please explain!02:30
siddhionubutom i would really rather take this issue on by myself since i can not communicate with them since they speak different language than me.02:30
JackWaughubottu, sounds like Zen.02:30
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)02:30
mgolischhufx: ubuntu has the root account disabled so the root pw cant be your user password02:31
ubutomsiddhion, I don't know, could cost something, do you have a password for your routers web configuration?02:31

wildbatanyone have idea, how to fix the system alert sound with compiz ? it seem if i am using compiz, it made some of the sound disappear(e.g. backspace while the inputbox is empty), but metacity work prefect with the sound theme.02:31
hufxunop: well ok but from a user point of view its the same02:31
mgolischhufx: its more like that in ubuntus default config users of the admn group can run stuff using sudo by providing their user passwords02:31
unophufx, the root account is locked by default, it can be unlocked and given a password - but that's not recommended. when you use sudo, it asks for _your_ password not root's password and elevates you up to superuser.02:31
siddhionubutom i do not know what you mean by "routers web configuration".02:31
ubutomsiddhion, can you maybe set another key with some windows-dial-in software or where that hex key is stored?02:32
unophufx, why should it be? and it isn't.02:32
ubutomsiddhion, most routers can be accessed through an ip in your lan, via browser, there you can change passwords, security settings, turn firewall on and off and so on02:33

linux_is_my_heroor girls.lol02:34
siddhionubutom i understand what you mean....polish. i am in poland.02:34
unophufx, I fail to see how that logically connects a user to root. Sudo doesn't query the root account or it's password.02:34
JackWaughsiddhion, you're living in Poland and you don't speak Polsky?02:35
siddhionubutom so the only way to access my router's web configuration would be to have them come then. right? or is there a way out of this?02:35

connermcdsiddhion right click on your connection icon then click connection information and find the IP of default route02:36

siddhionubutom cant i just call them up and they can give it to me?02:37
connermcdsiddhion default un/pw is usually admin/admin depending on router type... you can google the type of router to find the default pass for the model02:37
connermcdal7bar what do you need?02:37
siddhionconnermcd it is yes it gives me a pop up asking for username and passowrd02:37

connermcdsiddhion try admin admin; if that doesn't work look at the box and find the type of router it is02:38
unophufx, well, as you said, from the predicates in the sudoers file.02:38
connermcdsiddhion you can google the router type to find the default password02:38

siddhionubutom yes i did....tried "admin: admin" = didnt work02:40
connermcdsiddhion ubutom is right... many routers have a reset button on the bottom or side that you can press and hold down with a pen or needle to reset the device to its factory defaults02:40
ubutomsiddhion, yeah, there is on most routers a switch you need a sharp thing to press, a pen or a needle or anything else that fits in and press it a fey seconds02:40
JackWaughHooray for FloodBot3.02:40
connermcdsiddhion after which you can google the model number and find the default un/pass02:40

connermcdsiddhion did you try admin/admin?02:46

linux_is_my_heroyup reading now :-)02:47
unophufx, if you're asking how it is sudo elevates a user to root (and other users). it's because /usr/bin/sudo is owned by root and is setuid root - meaning that this utility always runs a process under the root account and therefore is able to spawn other process under root (or other users).02:47

linux_is_my_heroconnermcd: "an error occurred.  cannot read from resource"02:48
siddhionconnermcd ubutom they never gave me a manual or CD for the router...02:49
linux_is_my_heroconnermcd: thats what it says when i try to play my dvd02:49
connermcdsiddhion have you tried admin for the username and admin for the pass?02:49
connermcdlinux_is_my_hero did you download and install the libdvdcss2 package?02:49
ubutomsiddhion, and what about the details about your line? no number and password to use for ppp?02:49
ubutomsiddhion, and please don't write it in the channel ;D02:50
siddhionconnermcd admin/admin did not work....i honestly do not know what i have ....i know it is not DSL because its not coming in through a phone line...an ethernet cable plugs into the router....it travels up to the roof of our building and connects to a little white antenna02:51
connermcdsiddhion then it should be fine to reset the device02:51
connermcdsiddhion then you can use admin/admin and it should work02:51
linux_is_my_heroconnermcd: it says its already installed02:52
siddhionubutom what line? my connection? i dont know what ppp is.02:52
connermcdsiddhion afterwhich you will be able to go through a setup wizard and make a new username and password02:52
ubutomsiddhion, so you have Wireless LAN Bridge maybe?02:52
linux_is_my_heroit can read things on the disc (the autorun, the folders, etc....)02:52
hufxunop: whats the diff between  owned by root and  setuid root (if its not too OT)02:52
siddhionconnermcd but when i reset the device how do i get back online?02:52
ubutomsiddhion, point to point protocol I think, it's how people connect with their Digital Subscriber Line, but sionce you have a roof-antenna...02:53
connermcdsiddhion you will go to that IP( then go through the setup wizard... it will automatically figure stuff out02:53
connermcdsiddhion be advised02:53
siddhionconnermcd i see. is there any risk that i will not get back online?02:53
ubutomconnermcd, siddhion but the configuration the isp did will vanish and if siddhion doesn't know it he can't set it back02:53
connermcdsiddhion you must be connected to the router with an ethernet cable02:53
whiskishould be able to do a hardware reset if you f* things up02:53
unophufx, well, something is said to be "setuid root" if it is owned by root and has the setuid ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Setuid ) bit set i.e. with say  chmod u+s02:54
rwwhufx: setuid means that if you're a normal user and run it, it'll run with root privileges anyway02:54
connermcdsiddhion and ubutom is right... there is a risk that the ISP has specific settings... but generally not the case02:54
unophufx, setuid ensures that the process runs under the account that owns the file - so if you change the owner to say "nobody" - the executable runs under nobody02:54
unoprww, errm, not really - but yea, practically that's almost always the case.02:55
siddhionconnermcd so the safer way would be to conntact the ISP and just get the username and password ...correct?02:55
connermcdlinux_is_my_hero a reboot may be necessary after installing the libdvdcss2 package02:55
rwwunop: yes, I missed the word "root" in there.02:55
connermcdsiddhion yes, that is the safest thing to do02:55
ubutomconnermcd, siddhion, well, if they don't use encryption nothing will happen, but if they do the configuration will be gone and so the onternet02:55
connermcdconnermcd we're just providing you with work-arounds02:55

connermcdlinux_is_my_hero if you're following the page rww sent you there is more to do than just an apt-get install02:56

connermcdsiddhion all good; just trying to help02:57
=== debug_ is now known as debugnet
hufxunop: so "setuid" translates to set user id    that could seem dangerous in some insztances02:57
ubutomsiddhion, yeah, wanted to suggest that, maybe they can tell you how to setup the w-lan key in ubuntu , as it didn't work when you tried02:58
siddhionconnermcd ubutom  so once i get the username and password i should use to access the router and then what?02:58

connermcdZela http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/ubuntu-63/how-to-set-up-proxy-on-ubuntu-502540/02:58
connermcdsiddhion well what are you trying to do?02:58
hufxunop: so thats what Bastille was on about!02:58
linux_is_my_heroconnermcd: it still doesn't work. and its not the drive because i can read files on the disk.02:59
siddhionconnermcd well i am trying to get online with my Ubuntu 10.04 fresh install02:59
hufxunop: hence my questions02:59
D3RGPS31Any recent blogs about setting up a bootable/installable 10.04 on a usb stick?02:59
unophufx, indeed - it's a double-edged sword. it's dangerous and exploits can take advantage of it - but it's also necessary - like with allowing sudo to do it's job -- sudo actually complains if it is not setuid root.02:59
ubutomsiddhion, then you should be able to set your own WPA2 key and try if it works then, you also have to set the new key then in windows02:59
siddhionconnermcd the Network Icon is in constant animation mode...attempting to connect but it can never do it02:59
connermcdsiddhion oh... well I dunno who was pointing you to your router... I came into this conversation late... are you connecting wired or wirelessly?02:59
siddhionconnermcd wirelessly02:59
ubutomsiddhion, but maybe it will be easier to get some assistence on the wpa-key setting in ubuntu03:00
connermcdlinux_is_my_hero so you downloaded the package from that page, ran the script, and rebooted your machine?03:00
siddhionubutom ok03:00
linux_is_my_heroi didnt reboot, ill try that.03:00
siddhionubutom you mean by openning "Netwoirk Connections"03:00
connermcdsiddhion what ubutom said... now I see why he was pointing you to the router03:00
ubutomconnermcd, problem is the wpa2 key doesn't work when entered in ubuntu so we are not sure if it is the right one03:00
ubutomsiddhion, they have to have some kind of admin who can guide you trhough the setup03:01
connermcdsiddhion if you're using a computer that's working wirelessly and is running vista or 7 I believe there is a way to view the working passcode03:01
siddhionubutom well i jsut downlaoded a program called wirelesskeyview-x64 and reacquired the key and compared it to the one i had written a few months ago...it is the same one03:01

siddhionubutom ok i will consider03:04
unophufx, setuid is not a property given to a user. it's a property given to an executable file on the file system. Any user who invokes a "setuid root" executable actually invokes a process running as root (and therefore able to do anything on the system) -- which is why safeguards (like the sudoers file) are needed.03:04

siddhionconnermcd i assume my wireless card is working becasue i can see all the available networks ... wouldnt you agree?03:07
mrunknownJoaquin: you're welcome. You can add & to any command to detach it from the terminal that launched it.03:07
hufxunop: ist just that Bastille wants to change some file permissions03:07
connermcdsiddhion I agree now03:08
hufxunop: and I wanted to understand them03:08
unophufx, sorry, Bastille?  is that an application?03:08
connermcdsiddhion Only thing I can think is reboot and make sure you're typing the password correctly... wouldn't hurt to try that again03:08
siddhionconnermcd so since my wireless card is healthy then it must be my router that is ill , right?03:08
connermcdsiddhion not necessarily ill... it could have a MAC filter or some other settings that are preventing you from connecting03:09

HermanDEenav, Have X on a different server than the NFS server.....04:08

morph3usActionParsnip, may i talk to u in private?04:10
HermanDEenav, Yep...  First really big question....  Do you want local systems or store everything on the server?04:10
enavwell i guess local and remote04:11
HermanDEenav, Local System....  Each client has all applications installed...  And management means going to each system and updating/configuring....04:11
HermanDEenav, Remote Client....  Everything is on the server....  Make a change on the server...  And it immediately affects all users......04:12
enavWindows client can connect with LDAP?04:12
HermanDEenav, Uh....  Sure....  If you hook it with samba...  And do a bit of magic depending on your clients.....04:13

tripelbKangarooo, BRILLIANT. Use check the cd option. thanks.04:14
enavfirst i want to know what is the name of the model of a ubuntu solution for offices  like Windows Active directory04:14
enavi mean Windows = ActiveDirectory   but Linux = ?????04:15
FloodBot3lucero: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.04:15
HermanDEenav, ActiveDirectory is a specialized LDAP server.....04:16
HermanDEenav, They are not the same...   But both can store and serve elements.....04:16
enavthat means that LDAP can apply administrative templates and policies to user just like M$ ActiveDirectory does?04:17
HermanDEenav, One is directly hooked into the Windows system.  The other does not know the proper API for Windows.....04:17
rafaelsoaresbrhello, doesn't ubuntu have g77 anymore? to work with netbeans04:18
HermanDEenav, That is simply strange.....  LDAP does not contain templates....  That is a Microsoft API thing.....04:18
HermanDEenav, Microsoft doesn't want *anybody* to have their precious API information.....04:19

edjfcefcjfApparently you guys didn't hear the part about me just wanting ifconfig to see wlan005:27

mdg2edjfcefcjf: so you either want to use the windows driver *inf file with ndiswrapper or you want the linux driver without ndiswrapper05:29
HermanDEedjfcefcjf, To keep it from attempting to install/prior to the proper driver.....05:29

mdg2edjfcefcjf: because they are not wireless interfaces05:45
hasek79ubuntu is all very new to me i have been wanting to use it for awhile05:45
mdg2edjfcefcjf: sudo iwlist scan05:45
edjfcefcjfI told you I have no wlan005:45
edjfcefcjfMdg2 lo and eth0 don't support scanning05:45
edjfcefcjfSame thing05:45
tertl3hasek79: go into terminal and type lspci05:45
mdg2edjfcefcjf: on your desktop panel, click the nework icon and make sure you enabled "wireless"05:46
mdg2edjfcefcjf: that's a right click05:46
edjfcefcjfYour avoiding the situation05:46
hasek79came up with a bunch of stuff05:47
tertl3hasek79: do you see your card in that list of mumbo05:47
mdg2edjfcefcjf: if you don't have wlan0 or wlan1 or wlan anything, then your driver is not installed or blacklisted05:47
hasek79still looking05:47
edjfcefcjfMdg2 ifconfig and iwconfig aren't related to nm-applet05:47
tertl3hasek79: that is a list your pci buses05:47
mdg2edjfcefcjf: prove it05:48
mdg2edjfcefcjf: unplug your usb wifi adapter wait 20 seconds and plut it back in - does it light up?05:49
tertl3hasek79: ?05:49
edjfcefcjfMdg2 sure, go on arch linux05:50
tertl3hasek79: did you try to install the driver?05:50
edjfcefcjfIfconfig is there but is nm-applet?05:50
edjfcefcjfNm-applet is a gnome gui05:50
mdg2ifconfig is command line inquiry of network interfaces05:51
edjfcefcjfYes it lights up05:51
mdg2edjfcefcjf: iwlist scan - scans wireless interface05:51
mdg2edjfcefcjf: both from command line05:52
edjfcefcjfYes I know how to use iwlist05:52
mdg2edjfcefcjf: sudo iwlist scan05:52
edjfcefcjfOkay I give up maybe tommrow people will be more knowelage and stop trying to argue05:52
mdg2edjfcefcjf: see anything now?05:52
mdg2edjfcefcjf: you sure you know how to use command line and terminal?05:53
mdg2edjfcefcjf: if your adapter lit up - its working05:54
edjfcefcjfYes, remeber when I said this in the start05:54
mdg2edjfcefcjf: on your desktop menu bar you would see a stairstep icon replace the two computer icons for networking05:54
edjfcefcjfI tried completely removing ndiswrapper but ifconfig won't detect my wireless adapter and when I do lsusb it says its plugged in05:54
edjfcefcjfMdg2 I assure you I know how to use a terminal05:55
=== MePHiSTo1 is now known as SuP|Lobby
mdg2edjfcefcjf: if lsusb shows its plugged in, that means the system sees it, does not mean interface is configred05:55
mdg2edjfcefcjf: when you do lsub - there is a number:number that shows up - can you tell us what that is?05:56
mdg2edjfcefcjf: i.e., 104c:840005:56
edjfcefcjfI told you, I give up, your trying to follow the tut herman sent you most likely, I used thatguide05:57
mdg2edjfcefcjf: no, I never went there :)05:57
bastid_raZoredjfcefcjf: your != you are05:57
edjfcefcjfOk well I have a feeling ill have better luck looking through my drivers05:57
mdg2edjfcefcjf: thing is, the rt2xxx series wifi adapters have at least two different chips they use05:57
edjfcefcjfBastid I'm on a phone I know my grammar05:58
mdg2edjfcefcjf: that's why its best to check the id # of the adapter,which you can get from lsusb05:58
mdg2edjfcefcjf: from that number you determine the driver needed and then can modprobe or blacklist whatever is needed06:00
edjfcefcjfWhen I look in my drivers I see kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00/rt25007!+:*906:01
edjfcefcjf2500usb.ko sorry06:01
edjfcefcjfShould I have that mdg2?06:01
mdg2edjfcefcjf: rt2x00 is part of rt2500, plus there are other drivers in the rt2x00 series06:02
edjfcefcjfWait hold on I might have figured it out06:03
mdg2edjfcefcjf: again, getting the actual identifying number and working from there is the best plan06:03
mdg2edjfcefcjf: please don't tell me you have ethernet cable plugged in...06:03
edjfcefcjfI dont06:04
mdg2edjfcefcjf: well that's good news :)06:05
edjfcefcjfOkay I give up, ill go reinstall ubuntu06:06
* mdg2 sits on edge of seat waiting....06:06
edjfcefcjfIt didn't work06:06
mdg2edjfcefcjf: by chance did your wifi adapter work when running a live cd?06:07
orenwhen i choose '2 separate X screens' on nvidia-settings, my main screen stops working. any ideas?/06:07
edjfcefcjfYes it worked before I installed ndiswrapper aswell06:07
mdg2edjfcefcjf: you can try rebooting into the live cd and then checking lsmod06:07
mdg2edjfcefcjf: see what the live cd is using to run your wifi adapter06:08
evonIs there an itunes application for ubuntu that will let me access the store?06:08

dartthow to make panel transparent.....06:17
edjfcefcjfMdg2 I booted it06:18
mdg2edjfcefcjf: notice in the output of lsmod you see a colon and like a 0 or a 1, that tells you if the module is being used.06:18
lintdartt: its in panel properties06:18
Dr_Willisdartt:  its in the panel settings/properties menu i recall.06:18
thune3Nick_Meister: you might have to change the "profile" in the pulseaudio hardware options06:18
ylmfosi have e try06:18
lintdartt: right click on the panel and go to panel proprties, its the second tab06:18
Nick_Meisterthune3, can you help me with it please, because i do not know anything about this kind of stuff06:18
dartti tried that but it does not make it fully transparent...rather it distorts it :(06:18
bastid_raZordartt: right click > properties > Background > Solid color move the Style slider to transparent06:18
mdg2edjfcefcjf: do "sudo iwlist scan" and see if it is setup as wlan0 or wlan106:19
lintdartt: select background, and use teh slider to set it how you like it06:19
acerimmer_dartt: you might also have to enable advanced effects in appearance06:19
dartti did that06:19
lintdartt: select solid color06:19
thune3Nick_Meister: System Preference -> Sound | hardware tab06:19
darttacerimmer: i enabled advanced effects still it distorts the panels06:20
Nick_Meisterthune3, thats the problem there is nothing in that list :*(06:20
mdg2edjfcefcjf: lshw -show06:20
Nick_Meisterthune3, absolute zilch06:20

Nick_Meisterthune3, but the audio card shows up in lspci tho06:21
mdg2edjfcefcjf:  oops wrong command06:21

Dr_Willisdartt:  and whats distorted about it?06:28
darttDr_Willis, what?...not everything is trnasparent....it shpuld be completely transparent....only a section is transparent06:28
Dr_Willisdartt:  the panel applets are not using  the transparent background.  is a bit more clear in your question. not the term 'distorted' For all i know that may be a limitatuion of the gnome panel. Im not on gnome to  test it.06:29
anthonywhy fedora use beta software. fedora is a nice os but the software that fedora ship is not for new user. new in linux.06:29
Dr_Willisdartt:  its also possible if you log out/back in those panel applets Might 'see the new setting'06:30

HammertonJohn. In synaptics did you do a refresh so it redownloads all the packages?06:37
mdg2John__: did you let the updates run?  Like 130 or so to download06:37
lintits not a bug though06:37
Jordan_Usalil: Yes, it shouldn't be in a place like your home directory because even if the file itself is owned by root, since the directory it's in is not (and the sticky bit is not set), someone without root prieleges could gain them by rming it and writing their own in its place06:38

=== Guest9621 is now known as stonehinge
Jordan_Usalil: You're welcome.06:38
HowDoIdartt, also, it seems that by default, Ubuntu forces you to do things their way, and if you want to do things like making panels transparent, you have to edit things the hard way06:38
anthonyhey guy's what is the content of the recovery disk of the ubuntu 10.04.06:39
John__bastid_raZor: http://pastebin.com/sYWRCQUX06:39
darttHowDoI, hmmm...so there is no apparent solution for this?06:39
mdg2John__: then click the "search" icon on the right side of the synaptic window to search for things you want to add, not the Quick Search box06:39
lintdartt: make sure your colo0rs match06:39
John__mdg2: k06:39
darttlint, colors match?06:39
HowDoIdartt, yes there is.  The default Ubuntu theme apparently does not support transparent panels.  File a bug report.  In the mean time, find a new theme you like on say, www.gnome-look.org, or edit the theme yourself06:40

HowDoIdartt, the problem is that different parts of the panel are themed individually.  The theme-writers for those themes have made images for the background of the indicator applet, clock, etc. and themed them each.  The panel background preferences where you set transparency only themes the very farthest back background.  The icons, etc get color still06:47

HowDoIdartt, also you'll probably be bummed to find out that even then the panel isn't truly transparent.  If you move a window behind it, it will not show up.  Only the background is blended with the "transparent" panel.06:49

ralliasI am trying to compile firefox 3.7a4 and it gives me an error saying --enable-application=APP was not specified.06:53
ralliaswhat do i do?06:53
codebrainzrallias, specify that option?06:53
doormat81codebrainz, ah, that's the only way I've ever used or seen suggested lol.  And logging out restarts X?  Never knew that.06:53
ralliascodebrainz: configure: error: --enable-application=APP was not specified and is required.06:54
HowDoIdoormat81, you could also switch to another terminal using Ctrl+Alt+F6 and restarting X via command line06:54
binarymeJastur: are you talking about network connection sharing?06:54
ralliasi don't know what it is talking about06:54

JasturBoth machines have internet access, but I need to send all packets from a specified IP to my linux machine for inspection, but those packets are still needed on the windows machine06:55
codebrainzdoormat81, loging out to GDM and logging back in, afaik should restart X server06:55
JasturI used route on windows to forward said packets over to the linux box, but not sure how to send them back.06:55
ralliashow do i specify that option?06:55
HowDoIdoormat81, you can re-enable the Ctrl+Alt+Backspace restarting X via some setting.  Try googling it06:55

Blue1rus_bear: mounting is controlled by fstab07:33
rus_bearokay, I understand, thanks everyone!07:34
Dr_Willisrus_bear:  gnome has a 'mount on demand feature' feature that can be used. but if its ext2/3/4 you proberly want a fstab entry for it07:34

John__like ctrl f1-f7 is it?07:47
codebrainzFlannel, agreed07:47
John__How do I switch to text mode screens07:47
Dr_Willisuodo:  i would determine the exact chipset of the video card. and then check the forums. Some intel chipsets have issues.07:47
Flannelcodebrainz, mneptok: the point was his previous answer wasn't correct, and he should actually try it.07:47

Dr_WillisJohn__:  stop the gdm service. 'sudo service gdm stop'07:50
Flanneljsquared: If it doesn't, delete /var/cache/apt/pkgcache.bin and srcpackagecache.bin in that same directory, then try and update again.07:50

codebrainzjsquared, the old "Windows Fix" eh07:55
Sam_Fishercodebrainz, I can't find it but it is supposed to be there. I see it when I open MAIN MENU07:55

John___So it said it couldn't find nvidia.ku or something07:55
jsquaredIs that a general consensus or just me?07:55
John___when I tried to install.07:55
John___This is really annoying, why the hell can't I get this driver installed?107:55
Sam_Fisherjsquared, Not to me. Seems better all the way round.07:56
rwwjsquared: it's more stable than 9.10 was for me :\07:56
jsquaredProbably just my computer being lame. Ubuntu is awesome in general.07:56
codebrainzjsquared, i haven't used it as thoroughly as the last version, but haven't had any issues, everything "just worked" with this version07:56
codebrainzexcept for the UI changes that are lame07:56
Sam_Fisherjsquared, I did have to reinstall from scratch on a uograde in place on the laptop but that was likely my fault from constant tweaking07:56
jsquaredcodebrainz: I've tweaked the hell out of gnome so it just grabbed all my settings and I don't really see the UI changes.07:57
jsquaredcodebrainz: I assume you're talking about things like the window buttons being on the left, etc.07:57
codebrainzjsquared, yeah mostly.  luckily it's easy to change such things07:57
jsquaredYay open source :)07:58
wildbatanyone have idea, how to fix the system alert sound with compiz ? it seem if i am using compiz, it made some of the sound disappear(e.g. backspace while the inputbox is empty), but metacity work prefect with the sound theme.07:58
jsquaredSam_Fisher: I had similar problems, dist-upgrade was angry at me :P Also, had to install a much newer update of nvidia-glx than I had before, and that made things very cranky until I updated my xconfig to make it play nice07:59
rwwwildbat: it's a rather complicated known bug. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/30117407:59

John___codebrainz: well first it said the distribution-supplied start up script had failed, and I chose to continue -- then it said the installation had failed because it didn't have a nivida.ku or something file and it's often caused by kernel errors or something08:04
Sam_Fisherpigeta, welcome to the end of the internet08:04
Dr_WillisSam_Fisher:  the mic did seem to work.  I wonder if the quality could be due to the bluetooth dongle being Inside my pc. :) I stuck it on a internal pci usb card08:05

grindWhen i alt tab to a window in 10.04, the mouse moves over to the center of the newly active window08:07

grindcondebrainz, hmm i'll install the settings manager and have a look08:12
codebrainzjohn__, so press hdd and then keep pressing Esc08:13

john__just gets me to normal login screen08:14
Slartjsquared: mm.. I'm playing around with it as well.. I've made it understand double characters so far.. not words though08:14
codebrainzjohn__, maybe grub2 is different, but it should be straight forward to get to the grub menu still08:14
Dr_Willisactually isent it the shift key that shows the grub menu? I always make it 'always show' so i never rember08:14
Sam_Fishershift key shows grub during boot08:14
codebrainzDr_Willis, same here, not sure with grub2 though08:14
Sam_FisherDr_Willis, is always correct even when mistaken08:15
codebrainzi think grub legacy was the Esc key wasn't it?08:15
Sam_FisherGrub2 shows extra boot screen if you hit SHIFT during boot08:15
Dr_WillisYa got to wonder why they souldent let any key show the menu. :)08:15
codebrainzI don't like grub208:15
Sam_FisherOf course this is if you haven't screwed it up so bad that it doesn't show it08:16
well_laid_lawnjsquared:  echo "foo foo" | egrep  " foo"08:16
Dr_Willisheres my grub2 cfg to alwauys show the menu.. and Play a little TUNE  as grub shows,. :)08:16
Slartjsquared: hmm.. it seems the + is an egrep thing.. echo "bla blaa blaa bla blo blo" | grep '\([a-z]*\) \1'  seems to work08:16
grindcheers codebrainz08:16
Sam_Fishercodebrainz, I don't see any benefit to it either but from reading it is better cleaner programing08:16
jsquaredSlart: "*" means "match zero or more characters of this kind", so that will always work08:16
jsquaredSlart: (because it can just match zero characters twice)08:16
codebrainzSam_Fisher, it's "better" but the way it's configured now is more for programmers than users. .. imho08:17
jsquaredSlart: "+" means "match this character at least once"08:17
Sam_FisherSpeaking of Compiz. They are sending me an update right now!08:17
Dr_WillisRegular expressions Fundamentals. :) well ok not fundamentals.. but its somthign  that a Lot of people forget about the + and * differances08:17
Slartjsquared: mm, I know.. but + isn't available with ordinary regular expressions.. it's in the extended version08:17
Sam_Fishercodebrainz, I agree! I can't wait for it to be easier to understand by mortals. And when it breaks holy shit what a mess! I spent hours here with Grub victims!08:18
jsquaredThat's surprising. It's not like "+" is a particularly advanced/powerful feature08:18
jsquaredin fact it's a subset of "*", which is already there08:18
codebrainzSam_Fisher, what it needs is a GUI to configure it, i think08:18
wise_crypt!language Sam_Fisher08:19
Slartjsquared: this works nicely, can't think of anything it doesn't handle.. except upper case/lower case stuff     echo "abla bla blaa blaa bla blo blo" | grep '\<\([a-z]*\) \1\>'08:19
jsquaredwhat's the <> for?08:20
Slartjsquared: it's a word ending symbol.. it matches spaces, beginning/end of string, newline and such08:20
codebrainzSam_Fisher, I'm starting to think extlinux (syslinux) should be the default.  much easier to configure/understand08:20
jsquaredWTF, really? I've never heard of that as a regex matching symbol.08:21
Slartjsquared: or rather < is word start.. > is word ending08:21

akaustavOk codebrainz. Can any one help me figure out why I am getting 'invalid file system' error along with 'grub restore >' at the bootup?08:37
codebrainzakaustav, cuz you foobar'd your partition table and or filesystem likely, so grub is like wtf!?08:37
Dr_Willisgrub cant find any files it needs. :)08:38
akaustavcodebrainz: So, I understand I have to tell grub to rescan my file system again.08:38

codebrainzakaustav, see Internet for documentation on this08:39
akaustavcodebrainz: Ok.08:39

Sammael_XAnyone have any idea why the installer doesn't pick up my sata drives in 9.10, yet gparted sees them just fine?08:40
binarymeSammaul_X: does the drive have windows on it?08:41
Sammael_Xnope, all free space08:41
Sammael_XJust wiped it with gparted off the same livecd that refuses to see it08:41
codebrainzSammael_X, what if you boot the live cd and click Install icon on desktop?08:42
Sammael_Xwithin the same session08:42
Sammael_Xcodebrainz: Thats where I am08:42
Sammael_XIn the installer, which doesnt see it, yet gparted does08:42
codebrainzSammael_X, and you tried rebooting?08:42
Sammael_XHm, will give that a shot - just seems kinda odd08:43
Sammael_X<- no stranger to linux in general, just though the installer might have been fubared08:43
codebrainzSammael_X, might have to do with it not having a partition table in the mbr or something?08:43
Sammael_XThought it strange that gparted sees it inside the same session08:43
manuel_Is there any way I can save the settings on EasyStroke and Invest panel so I can load them when I reformat instead of inputting all the commands back in all over again?08:43
Dr_WillisSammael_X:  ive seen others in here with similer issues. Nto sure what causes it. but theres proberly some forum posts on the topic08:43
Sammael_Xcodebrainz: In other Ubuntu installs I have done, the installer picks it up regardless of whether the disk has OSes, or just partitions, or nothing at all on it08:44
Sammael_XWhich is why I am stumped08:44
binarymeSammaul_X: sometimes the installed refuses to see blank drives.  put a ext4 partition on it and then retry08:44
airtonixmanuel_, copy the conf files from your home folder? also next install make a separate partition for your home folder so you dont have to do this every time you want to reinstall08:44
Sammael_Xbinaryme: That will be the next step, should the reboot fail08:45
Dr_WillisSammael_X:  ive seen cases where after repartitioning a HD you need to reboot for the new partition layout to be seen properly.08:45
binarymeSammaul_X: I have seen this a few times, generally adding a fresh partion helps.08:45
Sammael_XDr_Willis: I can understand that, but one would think it would have seen it in its original config as well, before I removed the partitions08:46

Dr_Williscodebrainz:  and the theme files basically have such a script allready there08:55
codebrainzDr_Willis, absolutely, but just to make it a one-click thing for beginners08:56
shay27Hello , can someone recommend me on good tool for remote desktop ? (other than the Remote desktop that come with Ubuntu)08:56
Dr_Williscodebrainz:  I figured out hwo the themes were setting things to the left. (that script) anc changed them all to keep them always on the right08:56
Dr_Williscodebrainz:  theres a little gui tool out that also lets you set them08:56
airtonixmanuel_, i think all it saves is the stock codes you enter to watch. (which is in gconf (which is why i suggest you setup your new install with a separate partition for /home )08:57

airtonixshay27, which remote desktop tool do you mean ? (the vnc client or the RDPv5 client)08:58
Phil2010I am having a problem with KUBuntu crashing to the default Gnome login. (Ubuntu 10.04)08:58

Phil2010I installed KDE over Ubuntu ikonia08:59

Phil2010I have been using the vesa driver for the past few days.09:00
Phil2010Guest54692 Because I wanna use KUbuntu09:00

ikoniaPhil2010: how's it working with the vesa driver ?09:00
shay27airtonix: until now i used the Ubuntu remote desktop feature (System > Preferences > Remote Desktop) but its too slow , can you recommend me on other tool that is good ?09:00
manuel_airtonix, how much space should i dedicate to the home folder?09:00
Phil2010It's decent I still get decent video playback but I wanna get out of low res09:01
ikoniaPhil2010: do you get the crashing problem ?09:01
manuel_airtonix, that would actually be a smart idea to do that09:01
Phil2010Yes when I go to log in it shows 5 icons then shows the 6th Icon but then crashes back to the login screen.09:01
pixolinshay27: did you try teamviewer?09:01

miniverBasically, it doesn't seem to crash if I'm using it, but it I leave firefox idle (but with tabs open) and go away for an hour, when I come back it's crashed ... and won't re-open my tabs when I start it.10:08
chelzminiver: might be flash10:09
miniver*grumble* The flash, I hates it, it burns me.10:09

bazhangEE_, you have 9.10 or 10.0410:10
EE_chelz: ps im running ultimate edition 2.7 based of lucid10:10
miniverDisabling Flash means restarting the browser, and losing all of the opened pages -- what's the point of that?10:10
unopRickRaven, check the manpage for sudo -- look for the SECURE_PATH option10:10
chelzRickRaven: so right before you try to run it, what's in your path?10:10
EE_chelz: i have three diff terminals but not bash i guess10:10
miniver<- 10.04, firefox
miniver*sigh* thanks.10:11
chelzminiver: ok how about the flashblock extension10:11
RickRavenunop: ok i will check10:11
unopRickRaven, debian/ubuntu build sudo in such a way that only a sane PATH is used -- which is why your directory is not looked in10:11
chelzthen make sure no flash is running when you leave, just reload pages with flash on them to get flashblock to block them again10:11
bazhangEE_, ultimate is not supported here; and vmware does not have a working version with 10.04 lucid10:11

Dr_WillisEE_:  you are confuseing the 'terminal emulator' wht the actual 'shell' the emulator is running10:14
unopRickRaven, let's keep the conversation here -- so other people can contribute...10:14
Dr_WillisEE_:  echo $SHELL                  should print out the current 'shell' you are using . not what 'emulator/gui'  you are using10:14
EE_Dr_Willis: /bin/bash10:15
EE_i had an extra $ in there before10:15
Dr_WillisEE_:  so you are using the bash shell. There ya go.10:15
brickyhow would I back up my xorg.conf and restore it easily?10:15
unopRickRaven, SECURE_PATH ensures that PATH is reset to the default (as per /etc/profile) before sudo tries to run the command you give it --- this is to stop someone/malware from loading a bad directory in your PATH and possibly doing something disastrous.10:15

EE_ so are you guys telling me there is no way I can get vmware player to work with lucid?10:17
Dr_Willisbricky:  copy it somewhere, copy it back to restore10:17
zougunop, so if we change the PATH it wont make that change happen when we sudo something?10:17
unopRickRaven, example. people like doing this often ''sudo bash'' ... but if i created some malware (let's call it bash too) and placed it in your homedirectory, I can get it to affect PATH like this.  PATH="~/:$PATH" .. so the next time you go to run ''sudo bash'',   ~/bash is invoked and all your credit cards are mine...10:18
Dr_WillisEE_:  check the forums perhaps? or the !vmware factoids10:18

Pirate_Hunterdoes mpd allow me to play music on one pc but redirect the sound to other computers also can I control the songs being played?10:52
JyZyXELJordan_U: but there can be another partition table on top of md10:52
testi_I'd like to delete all pages following page 30 in an openoffice document. Selecting the whole content and then pressing "Delete" does not work. How can I delete content in a document?10:52
JyZyXELso could grub2 read the /boot files from a partitioned raid-1 md10:53
Dr_Willisselecting text and hitting 'delete' dosent delete text in OpenOfficcs?10:53

Jordan_UJyZyXEL: Yes.10:54
BlueEaglePirate_Hunter: Not actively developed anymore though.10:54
testi_Dr_Willis: well if the content is only text, then it works. But the content is mixed. There are tables, images and text.10:54

freshminthi, where to i get fresh bluetooth conf files. i messed mine...11:03
airtonixnmvictor, why would you want to remove pulseaudio ?11:03
airtonixnmvictor, if its causing problems you're doing something wrong or following bad advice11:03
BlueEaglenmvictor: Typing in all uppercase is concidered SHOUTING and generally bad manners.11:04
binarymewoot, it generally doesn't work like that.  two cards can't share the same ip11:04
insanity99hey guys, compiled my first program in pascal and i can open it in terminal fine but if i double click the file simply marked 'hello' nothing happens. any idea why?11:04
wootbinaryme, i see that i have 2 ip's one per interface11:04
brianhermanInsanity: chmod +x <FILENAME HERE>11:04
wootbinaryme: was my fault11:04
nmvictorairtonix: i just wanted to be sure if its important, if not, flush it out of my startup apps11:05
Dr_Willisnmvictor:  since its part of the normal gnome sound system.. i would say 'yes' to that question11:05
airtonixnmvictor, why ?11:05
insanity99i already tried that11:05
Dr_Willisinsanity99:  if its a terminal/text output program.. it needs someplace to print the output11:05
airtonixnmvictor, is it because of OCD11:05
wootbinaryme: i just want some kind of 'link' that they both pull out the speed, i mean that i have 2gbit and not 2x1gbit11:05
megabrakerwhen am working with script like python scripts e.g script.py i noticed that another backup file was created script.py~ is this any way to configure my linux distro to not create backup files?11:05
binarymewoot, you can have one ip per card, but my experience is generally not a goood it to be on the same network or subnet11:06
brianhermaninsanity: are you clicking on the compiled binary?11:06
insanity99Dr_Willis: how?11:06
nmvictorBlueEagle: i know UPPERCASE means shouting but sometimes it gets one the attention, as you've noticed, someone(s) listened...:)11:06
brianhermaninsanity99:right click run in terminal in ubuntu11:06
airtonixnmvictor, normally i just people on ignore that shout...11:06

airtonixbinaryme, woot i dont see the point of trying to merge the bandwidth of two NICS into one pipe if you dont have that same direct path at and through the end point11:08
insanity99yeah i added readln to make it wait11:08
nmvictoreverytime my system starts, i see a line "Startting speech dispatcher ... [ ok ]" in the boot messages, whats that process for?11:08
megabrakerok ama using Kate :)11:08
binarymeairtonix, that's actually what I am getting at too11:08
airtonixbinaryme, its possible but it requires special hardware right ?11:09
red2kicnmvictor: I'm guessing you installed festival or something.11:09
insanity99in the chose app to open with window, what is the command for terminal?11:09
binarymeairtonix, yes, it would require some kind of "load balancing" setup11:09
airtonixinsanity99, gnome-open ?11:09
wootthe customer want's to merge the two nic's bandwith ... i have no idea why he actually wants that sorry11:09
wooti am just the 'dumb' guy who has to get it up and running for him11:10
airtonixwoot, just say its beyond the customers budget11:10
megabrakerok thanks red2kic and Flannel11:10
insanity99just says 'open with...'11:10
nmvictorred2kic: i dont have it installed, but i was wondering if its of any importance to the rest of the system ?11:10
insanity99terminal isn't listed though11:10
wootbut that doesn't fix the problem that i have, that one nic goes down when it get's traffic11:10
wootand that appears only, when both nic's are up11:10
cachouuuuuusalut all =)11:10
airtonixinsanity99, you have to add your own entries11:10
binarymewoot, that would be like taking to freeways and directing all the traffic to a single lane highway..... roadblocks11:10
wootif i have only one nic up, i have no problem11:11
red2kicnmvictor: I doubt it it is of any importance to you. Accessibility packages.11:11
megabrakerwoot i like your name :)11:11
woothehe thanks megabraker11:11
wootbinaryme: sure, i get that but how i said, it is not my thoughts on that :D11:11
airtonixwoot, probably because they are on the same subnet / network ?11:11
nmvictorred2kic: yea, accessability packages was my gues11:11
nmvictorred2kic: thanks11:11
wootairtonix: that could be ... they both share the same subnet11:12
airtonixwoot, set them to separate subnets then11:12
binarymewoot, are we talking about an off site link to the net>11:12
insanity99airtonix: so how do i add terminal? where is it on filesystem?11:12
wootbinaryme: the nic's are both online, they both have online ip's (seperate) and are reachable or should be reachable from the outside11:13
wootbut, what11:13
binarymeok, then they will need to be on different subnets, or you will need some kind of load ballancing setup, like a dedicate dual WAN router11:14
airtonixinsanity99, depends on which terminal you mean ?11:14
wootbut, what's the point with that driver? ubuntu loads another driver than i have as hardware11:14
insanity99applications > accessories > terminal. thats what i use normally11:15

Mixxithow can i recover it?11:17
nmvictorMy System>Preference>Power Management does not have [On Battery] tab, only [On AC] & [General] tabs are visible.is this normal? Iam running Lucid lynx11:17
nmvictorMixxit: which version11:18
binarymewoot, that may be an issue, but I don't think it's the problem, if the cards work when you use the one at a time11:18
Mixxiti think it was a temporary network blip thats caused it and i want it to try to download it agai without having to go through the whole process again and download another 200mb11:18
airtonixMixxit, what ISP are you with ?11:18
nmvictor are you installing over the net or doing an upgrade from kermic?11:19
Mixxitits a fresh install11:19
Mixxithow can i make it download that file again?11:19
wootbinaryme i just tested eth1 standalone, have to test the other one. when it goes down it needs around 5-6minutes till it comes back11:19
airtonixMixxit, you need to be a bit more descriptive about what you are doing ... is it just an apt-get command you're running ?11:20
Mixxitim just using the installer11:20
airtonixMixxit, which means ?11:20
nmvictorMixxit: i honestly dont understand, cant you get an ubuntu Lucid CD or alternate installer, its a cheaper option11:21
airtonixMixxit, "just using the installer " << this could mean several things11:21
[hate]meмля тут есть персы из росии или вы для понтов на инглише общаетесь?11:21
Mixxiti think its a graphical interface to debootstrap in the ubuntu net installer cd11:21

brickysomone wanna remote fix my ubuntu =]11:22
airtonixMixxit, i've no idea how to make it continue from the interupted position.11:22
steffanbricky: what is the problem?11:22
nmvictorMixxit: why, is that you only option?11:22
binarymewoot, ok, if each card works ok, then it's probably a conflict because you are try to use two IPs on one subnet....  this won't work without special config or hardware11:22
brickysteffan i'm having a hard time with my wireless driver, ill send a screenshot11:22
Mixxitbecause to start again would be another 200mb11:22
brickyrather, ill post11:23
airtonixMixxit, i dont think you can continue on from interupted point... i would just wait and get the proper install cd iso when you have a real internet connection.11:23
wootbinaryme: okay, so i gotta try this out, the driver issue shall i fix it and when yes will there be trouble? i know my luck ;/11:23
Mixxitthanks anyway11:23
nmvictorMixxit: but i thought the installer is placing the dowloaded files somewhere on your system, i doubt if it will have to download again11:24

ShapeShifter499I have a ton of questions, but I'll start with this, I have this old computer, a Dell Inspiron 2500 with 128 mb ram, 10 gb hard drive, and a Pentium III processor that I saved from e-waste and I plan to turn it into a file, print, and maybe an web server.... I am currently trying to get the printer to work....but I think no matter the OS it still requires BOTH a b/w cartridge and color...11:39
ShapeShifter499...cartridge before it will print....I can't tell11:39

echosystmwhen i made it autodetect, it found it11:46
echosystmand it installed fine11:46
ShapeShifter499thune3: I do know that on a windows comp I have it kept giving an color cartridge error.....saying it wasn't plugged in OR was defective, and the only options were to cancel printing or get more info on what cartridges to buy11:46
echosystmnow that ive rebooted, it cant find the card again11:46
echosystmwhat can i do to make it autodetect the card again?11:46
anonymouse_echosystm, what card is it?11:46
echosystmi dont know11:47
echosystmsome mitsubishi thing11:47
anonymouse_echosystm, try lspci11:47

echosystmbut thats all i can see11:48
ShapeShifter499thune3: I'm afraid that it wont last a month11:48
echosystmi know this definitely works, because it was downloading some stuff during installation11:49
echosystmand the apt cache has been updated et.c11:49
thune3ShapeShifter499: can you launch xfprint or xfprint411:49
ShapeShifter499thune3: xfprint?11:49
ShapeShifter499thune3: I don't think they are installed11:50
thune3ShapeShifter499: you are on xfce if i remember, and i think this is the printing config utility, but i could be wrong11:50
anonymouse_echosystm, yeah I don't think it has anything to do with the NIC itself, it sounds like a bug11:50
Moopzsilner: Doesn't seem like it.11:50
ShapeShifter499thune3: oh one sec, I should be able to start it through alt-f2 OR terminal right?11:50
silnerI notice there is a meta package called ubuntu-netbook in the repo Moopz?11:50
echosystmhow do i do the autodetect thing like it does during the installation?11:50
thune3ShapeShifter499: i'm not xfce guy, but i want to know if you can configure default to "grayscale"11:51
Moopzsilner: I'm new to ubuntu, so all I know is what I can see in the cache search. How do I locate that one?11:51
Dr_WillisMoopz:  insstall ubuntu-netbook package. select netbook  interface at teh GDM login screen11:51
Dr_WillisMoopz:  use the synaptic package manager search for netbook11:51

adalalhey, im trying to create a script that will run a folder full of files through ffmpeg and dump the output elsewhere with a different extension, how do i go about doing that (how to create the script)?12:09

rethusred2kic: no is not installed12:10
red2kicadalal: It shouldn't take long. You want to do a loop -- command -- etc.12:10
adalaloh ok thanks12:10
red2kicrethus: Meh, I don't know. gnome-backgrounds could be where the flower came from.12:10
kad__hey i'm using Mail Evolution, does anyone know what the IMAP server for hotmail?12:10
thune3ShapeShifter499: if an empty cartridge is there, and you print just b/w it is supposed to work, though12:10
red2kickad__: http://fluentfactory.com/mboxmail-for-mac/12:11
red2kickad__: Err, wrong url.12:12
red2kickad__: http://email.about.com/od/windowslivehotmailtips/qt/et_izymail.htm -- But that's a bit different12:12
kad__red2kic, is izymail trusted?12:13
ShapeShifter499thune3: ya I know, its odd though that a printer would need any cartridge if the print job is not going to use it12:13
red2kickad__: I don't know. I use Gmail-App mail + IMAP --> Thunderbird (and postfix).12:13
babbahello ubuntu !12:13
KalEldoes anyone know if there is a way to turn off the non essential updates? i would be willing to fix the security flaws, but i think it's a bit too much updating big packages like openoffix and the like every now and then12:13
thune3ShapeShifter499: yeah, well. printers are designed to be a scam and take your money12:14
babbahello i need browser which operate from terminal12:15

red2kicbabba: Me either. I use lynx --dump for my scripts.12:15
babbalike elinks dump ?12:16
ShapeShifter499thune3: I'm just wondering....if the printer can be controlled with a driver, why someone hasn't made a modded driver with a work around yet....12:16
