IntyalleAha, thank you history. I finally found the right entry and found the command again00:00
J100is it ntfs-fix00:01
* Intyalle saves the command this time00:01
IntyalleNo, it's a specific command to remount it properly - sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /media/External -o remount,rw00:02
J100storing that in google notes00:02
Intyalle... and now I'm back down to last night's problem00:02
IntyalleIt refuses to create a new folder because the file/folder does not exist00:03
IntyalleEvery time I see the error I can't help but think that's kinda the point - the folder doesn't exist, that's why I'm trying to make it00:05
J100make on the pc and move it to the drive00:05
schlaftierIntyalle: I wasn't there last night, do you have some more information, like the exact error message, in a pastebin?00:06
J100if it won't move it there try making moving a text file to the drive00:06
IntyalleFailed to create directory "/media/X Storage/backup".00:07
IntyalleNo such file or directory.00:07
IntyalleThere's your exact error message00:07
schlaftierIntyalle: You usually get this message when the parent directory doesn't exist, so: does the directory "/media/X Storage" exist00:08
IntyalleYes. That's my external hard drive. I am *in* that directory when I try to make the new folder (right click, create new folder method, but it doesn't work with mkdir when I open terminal at that point either)00:09
schlaftierthat's weird00:10
lightacan you create a file ?00:11
IntyalleFailed to create empty file "test".00:11
IntyalleNo such file or directory00:11
IntyalleDo you want to skip it?00:12
Intyalle^ I got that error message when I tried00:12
lightaI was thinking maybe your mounting rw didn't work properly00:12
IntyalleMaybe, but before that I didn't even have the *option* to create a file or folder.00:12
IntyalleAnd certainly I can delete files again just fine after using that command.00:12
lightahmm try mounting your external drive with ntfs-3g on type00:14
lightahad writting issues before this too00:14
lightayou external drive don't u use /etc/fstab to mount it ?00:15
IntyalleUsually it automounts. The specific command I used earlier to fix the writing problem is above. I can paste it again if you need.00:17
IntyallePlease remember I'm only a pretend computer geek :P I know my way reasonably around a computer, but I'm still relatively new to Linux.00:18
lightaI'm far pro either don't worry00:19
J100 radeon rv100 (radeon 7000/ve) does any know if the new radeon driver has issues with this card00:19
lightamy command would be /dev/sdc1 /media/External ntfs-3g defaults,utf8 0 000:21
IntyalleI'll try it00:23
Intyalle... That's mount, yes?00:25
lightafdisk -l ?00:28
lightaI don't remenber proper command :( the one I gave you should be put at end of /etc/fstab to mount it automatically00:36
lightaput it then run mount -a (easier)00:36
IntyalleHow to I put into the file?00:38
lightasudo nano /etc/fstab00:38
IntyalleHow do I save it?00:43
lightactrl + x00:43
lightaten o00:43
lightathen o*00:44
lightayou can do it with sudo mousepad /etc/fstab if you prefer00:44
IntyalleDoesn't seem to have worked00:47
lightait has mounted and everything ?00:47
IntyalleSaved - and I know I did - ejected, remounted, didn't seem to be different, checked file again... hadn't actually changed.00:48
lightacould you open it ?00:49
IntyalleThe hard drive, or the file?00:51
lightahard drive after mount it00:52
lightaand you tryed to write in it?00:52
IntyalleBut it mounted read-only again. Fixed it with the mount command, bt it still won't make folders.00:53
lightaoh ok, then I don't have other idea00:53
IntyalleOkay, so I can happily mess with any file already there, but I can't copy anything to or create anything at any location on the drive00:55
lightaI really have no idea why, unmount reset external then retry ?00:57
IntyalleAlready tried unmounting and mounting again. Repeatedly.00:58
lightawith turning off ?00:58
IntyalleTried restarting too. Worked occasionally at the start with the read-only problem, but not even that anymore00:59
lightaI don't think reboot computer could help but..01:00
IntyalleAs I said, it doesn't anymore01:01
IntyalleAt this rate I'm just gonna have to hope my last blank DVDs have enough space to do the backup, pain in the ass as that will be. Particularly since I doubt they will.01:04

IntyalleDunno then01:37
IntyalleI just know I always go looking to see if there's an apt-get to install a program rather than downloading and installing, since it's easier01:37
IntyalleThe search usually picks up any other packages that need installing, whether there is an apt-get for the program itself or not01:38

TriMeyou should be able to do a reboot without applying the settings and it'll come back.03:35
TriMeif not u might need to load it in safe mode and change the res there03:35
KangaroooTriMe: no? in xubuntu if u put resolution it has never changed or waited some seconds for accept or revert.03:36
TriMehas a reboot fixed it?03:36
Kangaroooi mean it changes immidiatlly but doesnt wait for acept or revert if not accepted03:37

TriMeWell thats what i was saying if its been "saved"03:37
Kangaroooof course its saved immidiatly after pressing apply03:38

oreni try to find the correct package for my GeForce 6200. according to this page - https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/lucid/i386/nvidia-glx-185/185.18.36-0ubuntu9  the nvidia-glk-185 supports my card. i installed it and now jockey-gtk shows me nvidia-current but tells me it's not being used. any clues?04:08
knomeoren, have you triede enabling the driver?04:10
orenknome: no. how?04:10
knomeoren, you have to enable propietary drivers yourself04:11
orenknome: sure. how do i enable the driver? and also, is it nvidia-current that we're talking about?04:12
knomeoren, whatever driver that's on jockey :)04:12
knomeoren, there should be a button to enable the driver in jockey04:12
orenknome: that's the one i see. how do i enable it? on the jockey screen i see a button 'deactivate'. but i don't see a way to use it.04:13
oren(and i assume i don't want to deactivate it)04:13
knomeoren, hmm. then it's running i suppse04:14
orenknome: ok. but it tells me: this driver is activated but not currently in use.04:14
knomeoren, mmh. have you tried booting?04:14
orenknome: no..04:14
knomeoren, maybe you should try that first04:15
orenthanks, i'll be back soon (-:04:15
lightaI need vstpd support but none respond there, localhost connection don't work, here my config file : http://pastebin.com/eQKvvfi404:17
orenhow to 'use' nvidia driver for my GeForce 6200? i activated it from jockey-gtk (even though it still say it's not being used) and rebooted. not only it didn't help. now my main monitor is not working. any tips?04:51
oreni heard people on the forum saying there mighht be a bug in the UI of jockey and it's actually using the driver.04:52
knomeoren, that might as well be04:53
orenanother question - i installed nvidia-glx-185 since it say it support my card. maybe there is different package i should install instead?04:54
orenknome: 1 sec..04:55
orenknome: some progress - nvidia-settings is runnnig now. but i can't see my main monitor.04:56
orenhow to tell nvidia about my other monitor?04:56
knomeoren, iirc there is some kind of "probe for monitors" button or so04:56
knomeoren, or just look at the configuration stuff04:56
knomeoren, i had an nvidia card before and the other monitor was "hidden", but just can't remember what you needed to do to get it visible04:57
knomeoren, i have to get some sleep now though04:57
knomeoren, good luck with that :)04:57
orenknome: u were right. i am rebooting now. thanks04:58
oreni have 2 screens and i use nvidia-settings to set two seperate x. the ploblem is the main screen is black (i see the cursor though). when i chose twine-view it's working (unusable, but i see one giant screen spread across 2 monitors). how to make it work with 2 separate x?05:21

Arpad2what is the LTS after the codename version?16:08
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)16:09
Arpad2this means also that karmic is not supported since the new release?16:12
Sysiit is, for some time16:13
Sysiiirc until 10.10 comes out16:14
Arpad210.04 is stable also?16:14

lightahow can I disable sound in xchat ?18:52
Sysisettings → notifications or something18:53
lightayes I did that already. settings -> sound but didn't found how to disable it. (or I point to an empty folder file for sound but..)18:55
Sysinot that one18:55
lightathe one in xchat right ?18:56
Sysibut the one for sounds but for notifications18:58
lightasetting > preference > chat > sound (no disable option). I want to disable all sound19:03
Sysi... you have to do it in other way19:03
Sysi"alarms" or something in settings19:04
lightasettings got 2 option : preference and advance; in advence 3 categorie : interface, chat, network19:05
Sysichat → first under that19:07
Sysi(on my system)19:08
lightayes, then alarme, disable option put a bip19:09

AquinaCan someone recommend me a model?20:27
knomea model?20:27
knomei'd say heidi klum will be a safe choice20:28
Sysiearlier he talked about touchscreens20:29
knomeyou can touch heidi klum as well20:30
knomethough i don't know where the "screen" is20:30
Aquinaubuntuhcl.org is not so helpful for finding a touchscreen that works with lucid and is cheap as well.20:30
AquinaBesides that I dont like heidi since she's stupid. Bad example for a woman (although economically successfull). :-/20:31
knomeno need to be rude20:32
Aquinahuh? She's from my country, shes female like me and I still think she's stupid. ;-)20:33
knomestill no need to be rude20:34
Sysii've called you "he", you didn't fix20:36
Sysi"shes female like me"20:39
Sysior am i just tired..20:39
raevolfight fight!20:39
AquinaI'm from Germany and maybe my English is not the best. I'm sorry for that. I still don't understand what you want to tell me. Can you recommend me a touchscreen which works out of the box?20:40
lightaguys, what better pasv or port for ftp connection ? no need big detail20:41
lightaI think you usually say "she's a woman"20:44

TheSheepon the irc everyone are smelly male nerds anyways ;)20:49
TheSheepthen again, it doesn't solve the touchscreen problem20:49
TheSheepAquina: if you have a computer hardware store nearby, maybe you could arrange for a test20:50
AquinaThx, TheSheep. :-) That's a great idea.21:31
TheSheepAquina: I think in Germany you can return a product if it doesn't meet your expectations21:32
AquinaOh yes, lights: "she's" a woman. :-)21:32
TheSheepAquina: in the worst case21:32
AquinaYes, that's true.21:32
TheSheepyou need that touchscreen for some public terminal?21:33
AquinaTheSheep, where can I look up whether a hardware becomes possibly supported? kernel.org? Or is there an easier to read and understand source?22:01
TheSheepAquina: I don't think there is a single place for that22:02
AquinaOk, that's waht I wanted to know. Thx!22:03
TheSheepAquina: especially when developers only care about the chips inside that hardware and often don't even know all the model names of hardware that uses a specific chip22:03
TheSheepAquina: so when they add support for a particular chip, they don't even know what devices become supported22:04
AquinaThat's true the problem however that an open source driver exists but no working up-to-date package for lucid. I helped a friend to compile the USB-module and driver, loaded it and wrote (I HAD TO) an xorg.conf.22:06
AquinaIt finally "worked" after th Xserver reset itself. In short: support by the vendor mimomonitors.com is awfull. It's painfull.22:07
TheSheepone way to imporve the situation is to work on packaging it...22:10
TheSheepactually, I'm pretty sure it won't imporve unless someone does :)22:11
TheSheepwhat's with that 'imporve' :/22:11
TheSheepFreud would know22:11
Aquina:-) But that's the vendors work AND the device is 300 miles awy and I have only shell access and can't visually veryfy anything. ;-(22:12
TheSheepAquina: nag the vendor22:13
AquinaWE'll do that :-)22:13
TheSheepAquina: organize a pressure group22:13
TheSheepAquina: perform a number of raids on their headquaters22:14
Aquinaalright! ;-) Here we go...22:14
TheSheepAquina: kidnap their children and teach them to use linux22:14
TheSheepinstall debian on their home appliances22:15
AquinaOh, we'll take that into account. :-)22:15
TheSheepor give up and do their work for them22:15
AquinaWe already have a discussion about that. He is yet undecided what to do. Other touchscreen vendors often offer old drivers. It's all a nightmare.22:18
