Ricky123peturi: lol no00:01
peturiRicky123: so remove all users but keep their files?00:01
Ricky123peturi: i just want to create a user and then set it back to the way it is now whereby nobody can login unless they got the private key00:01

eblumeHi - I deleted an LVM logical volume and created a new one to mount in the same place. I updated my fstab with the new UUID, but now Ubuntu won't boot without manual intervention - I get a purple (Lucid) screen telling me that the mount wasn't ready and I need to press "S" to skip it.00:02
shadyabhiHOw do I run chrome through SOCKS proxy?00:02
Ricky123the only way to login is to use a private key file and then if it works, it asks you what user you want to be and you type that in00:02

It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages.

actionParsnipcannonfodder: its the right way to run gui based apps with elevated access. sudo is ONLY for terminal based commands like apt-get, cp, mv etc00:48
actionParsnipIConrad01: its a bit more than a graphical frontend00:49
cannonfodderthen why am i able to save if i sudo it but not if i just gedit it00:49
Viking667IConrad01: I don't even know if it hides them from you in GUI mode either, does it? Konqueror/Nautilus/Dolphin don't seem to.00:49
IConrad01Viking667: Normally, no it doesn't.  But it *can*.00:49
claygHow do you disable the touchpad?00:49
IConrad01*.desktop files are a good example.00:49
actionParsnipcannonfodder: if you just run gedit it runs as a user (you) which doesn't have write access to the file. using gksudo gives you write access as the process runs as root00:50
Viking667heh. I kind of turn that off (hiding extensions) in windows, why would I want it back on in Linux for?00:50
IConrad01actionParsnip: If the question is "What's gksudo" -- then that's a good explanation. :)00:50
Viking667my only problem with *.desktop is where the heck to put them once I've made them.00:50
IConrad01... on your desktop?00:51
DasEicannonfodder: only superuser-privilegs can alter systemfiles, it's about write permissions00:51
ubottuSamba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.00:51
DasEicannonfodder: each file on  linux-sys has it's own permissions00:51
Viking667Then there are the programs I install, but they don't show up on the Ubuntu menu. Take linpsk or qsstv. Neither of those show up, and I have to run them from commandline even though they're both GUI programs00:51
cannonfodderis there a good website to learn about all this user privelage stuff?00:51
IConrad01For more fun -- if for some reason SAMBA isn't working and you want at a Windows box...00:51
IConrad01You can use SSHFS to mount remote directories...00:51
IConrad01so long as both parties are running ssh.00:51
Viking667he he he...00:52
Guest54599cannonfodder, are you new to linux00:52
IConrad01cannonfodder: Just use "man sudo"00:52
Viking667But which ssh? The one from SUA/SFU?00:52
IConrad01and "info sudo"00:52
DarkNemesisanyone have any idea about how to share files between a pc and a web book? webbook running 9.04 desktop running 10.0400:52
DasEicannonfodder: sure there are, first look at man chmod, and don't change this, it's part of system-integrity00:52
ubottuAn explanation of what file permissions are and how they can be manipulated can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions00:52
IConrad01Viking667: As long as they can talk to each other.00:52
IConrad01I don't think it matters.00:52
IConrad01chmod -- remember: rwx, 421.00:53
monoxideDarkNemesis, ssh?00:53
IConrad01Just learned that today.  :-/00:53
IConrad01And I got my RHCT today.00:53
Viking667... though I suspect that the sshd in SUA doesn't get upgraded anywhere as often as it needs to.00:53
Viking667(at least, not the one I can install on Windows XP Pro)00:53
DasEicannonfodder: you know you can have a brief manual of command by prefixing it with man in terminal ?00:53
Viking667i.e.  "man  some-command"00:53
IConrad01Viking667: As I said -- I don't *think* it matters what ssh server you're working with.00:54
Viking667Only works for some programs00:54
DasEicannonfodder: man chmod, man chown00:54
astropirateI'm running lucid and i got thi sfont called inconsolata and i want to install. how do i go about doing that?00:54
IConrad01cannonfodder: You can also often-times get more in-depth manuals with other options.00:54
IConrad01A way to find out how to do this is to run:00:54
Viking667if it's a KDE program, doesn't work. If it's a Gnome program, it doesn't always work.00:54
IConrad01find /usr/share | grep NameOfCommand00:54
c3lI need help with the package moc. running files on local is just fine, but playing files from remote that are mounted with sshfs opens VERY slowly, but when opened its all fine. (mplayer or cmus etc has no problems) what can it be?00:54
NitsugaViking667, part of the Debian directives on deb packages is that all programs must include a man page00:54
IConrad01Any #'s you see...00:54
IConrad01You can run man # NameOfCommand00:54
Viking667... as both Gnome and KDE seemto store their help files in different formats and ways.00:54
Nitsugabtw, canonical is always violating this rules00:54
IConrad01And that'll give you alternate pages.00:54
DarkNemesismonoxide, on a LAN no, i want to be able to share files like a samba share i'm listening to music on my eee that is actually on my desktop and no files shifted00:55
claygHow do you disable the touchpad?00:55
IConrad01You can also run info NameOfCommand to get other info00:55
Nitsugaso.. it works for all programs, but not the ubuntu-only ones00:55
IConrad01Clayg: Disable altogether or only partially.00:55
Viking667Nitsuga: ha ... and a lot of the gnome ones end up being "We included this because the distributor didn't"00:55

ubottuclayg: For a comprehensive Synaptics Touchpad guide, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticsTouchpad00:56
IConrad01I guess you could go the route of using modprobe -r NameOfDriver00:56
actionParsnipIConrad01: gksudo is the correct way to run graphical apps in linux. The kde equivelant is kdesu. Sudo is not to be used as it does not setuip the environment correctly and it can ruin file ownerships in the home directory causing apps to not run and logons to fail. sudo is ONLY to be used for command line apps like apt-get, cp, mv, ln etc and kdesu/gksudo is to be used for nautilus, gedit and whatnot. You can technically use00:57

DasEicrouchingsamurai: sounds fine then, now can use install from desktop, having a fresh mbr and no grub detecting another os :: before you start, did you verify the cd ?01:32
spottyI was surprised.  However, then I opened up my laptop to replace the drive....and I found out it was a Seagate.01:33
Viking667spotty: ouch.01:33
IConrad01Just out of curiosity; what tools did you use to try to recover it?01:33
Viking667Seagates are great, until they go bad. Then they go bad ... BAAAD.01:33
spottyThats the 4th time Seagate products bend me over the proverbial desk of life and screw me.01:33
Typos_King..., Seagate has bought other good brand makers01:34
spottybut I have to say that 6 months is a record for me. I have never had a hard drive last such a short time01:34
crouchingsamuraiDasEi:  Yes.  I use infrarecorder open source software and always do a check after burn01:34
spottySo now, I got a new hard drive and a fresh install of Lucid.  Only problem is that 64 bit flash just ceased being supported.01:34
DasEicrouchingsamurai: the cd itself has an option check media, can be chosen after bootup01:34
spottyNo YouTube for me01:34
IConrad01spotty -- why not just use the 32-bit Flash?01:34
IdleOnewww.youtube.com/html5 spotty01:35
crouchingsamuraiDasEi:  So I'm good to go and can now reboot pc with cd installed and perform a new install of 10.04?01:35
resnothanks DasEi IdleOne Viking66701:35
IConrad01Is ia32 libs so horrible?01:35
MaRk-Ispotty: try "minitube"01:35
Viking667awww crap. I can't go browse the Skype errors, because jira is down...01:35
DasEicrouchingsamurai: I think so, and make sure grub installs to sda (will go in this mbr then, not touching your other drives)01:35
spottyI tried using it despite my system being a 32 bit and so far, I cant get it to work in the browsers at all01:35
* Viking667 uses youtube-dl and then plays the flvs using mplayer. FAR faster than running in browser.01:36
crouchingsamuraiDasEi:  Thanks a lot for your help.01:36
baalwwwdoes ubuntu use the same file system as the host if it's running in virtualbox?01:36
DasEinp, be welcome01:36
Viking667baalwww: it better NOT do. Thats' "not supported"01:36
spottyBut its not just youtube. I never realized how many things I go to use flash in some way.01:36
DasEiViking667: I like video downloadhelper for it01:36
Viking667DasEi: I neve found that to work when I tried it.01:36
baalwwwViking667: what's better not do...running it in virtualbox?01:36
spottyI can try and download the flash from the website but it wont let me install since it is the wrong architecture01:37
IConrad01baalwww: VirtualBox creates .vmi files which it uses as "virtual machine images"01:37
Viking667baalwww: err, you don't use the host's filesystem as the root filesystem of the virtualbox instance.01:37
IConrad01Kinda like having a .iso file on your system.01:37
* Viking667 agrees.01:37
DasEiViking667: it does fine for me, and also can get direct d/l links for a d/l manager or wget/curl for it .. FAST01:37
spottySo IM not sure what else I can do. I have the synaptic versions of flash player but they arent the latest01:37
IConrad01Except in this case it's your virtual machine's hard-drive instead of a CD that's being kept as an image file.01:37
=== help is now known as Guest62290
IConrad01Spotty: Do you have the 64-bit flash repo still?01:38
baalwwwViking667: IConrad01: ok, well, I installed virtualbox on vista, and then ubuntu on virtualbox, which runs fine...except I can't do a sym link01:38
spottyNo.  I do not.  Back in the old install (the bad hd) I had the 32 bit version of Lucid installed01:38
spottySo updating to the latest was no problem.01:38
Viking667a symlink on ... what?01:38
MaRk-Ispotty: your box is 32 bit and your OS is 64 bit?01:38
spottynow I cant really do that because they discontinued 64-bit.  Blargh......01:38
DasEispotty: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras, fine on my 64 here (installs a bunch of other needed codecs, too)01:38
IConrad01baalwww:  symlink from VirtualBox to Vista?  No, that wouldn't work.01:39
Guest62290how long is the time out for irc connection before I can logon with my username again?01:39

IConrad01spotty: Lucid amd64 includes a link to the 32-bit flash-plugin.01:39
baalwwwViking667: IConrad01: no, sym link within ubuntu. I installed phpmyadmin. it ended up in /usr/share and I need it sym linked to /var/www ... I get the message, despite sudo, that the action is not permitted01:39
IConrad01In it's non-free repository.01:39

Viking667baalwww: hm. Sounds like you have other errors.01:40
C0keNC0deguys, I'm getting hell getting my usb gamepad to work. What's up with jscalibrator being dropped, and what am i supposed to use now?01:40
IConrad01spotty: It *should* just be the normal flashplugin-installer entry...01:40
wildbatubuntu don't give the option to suspend/sleep(it got hibernates thou) in the shutdown menu~ what should i do to enable it? 10.04, E6600, ASUS P5B01:40
IConrad01Just make sure you don't have the 64-bit flashplugin repo overriding it.01:40
baalwwwViking667: well, i was reading a lot of messages about sym links not working in a fat32 partition... and i could think of no reason why linux would be on a fat32 partition other than a situation like mine01:40

Brunellushello.  After an update to Lucid, I no longer have write permission on auto-mounted USB disks.  What happened, and where can I fix this01:41
spottyI jut know that out of the box, I cant get flash to work01:41
IConrad01And what's the host fs?01:41
IConrad01spotty: Try gnash, maybe.01:41
IConrad01There's another program that's like gnash but has actionscript3 support.01:41
IConrad01(And not actionscript2...)01:41
IConrad01I forget its name.01:41
DasEiAdem: best will always become a poll, next to compiz abilities, fitting g-card is needed therefor, terminator can do some tricks01:42
IConrad01Can't recall at all.01:42
baalwwwIConrad01: how would I tell which file system ubuntu is using?01:42
claygwhats the best gps+map application for ubuntu?01:42

Viking667If that does'nt work, check mounts01:44
baalwwwViking667: not permitted01:44

IConrad01And here's where that file goes:01:50
monoxideor any app01:50
resnoIConrad01: thanks :), are you a centos person?01:50
frankS2monoxide: there should be no reason to "know" how to use something as simple as a sound daemon01:50

frankS2it shold work in the background01:50
spottyMark-I: Nope. Nothing happens.01:50
IConrad01I just got my RHCT today, actually.01:51
Jordan_UfrankS2: It's not so much pulseaudio that's buggy most of the time but rather the alsa drivers01:51
spottyMaybe there is something missing01:51
monoxidewhen then you have fun fighting with recording from loopbacks the hardway01:51
IConrad01But I've been an Ubuntu user since 7.04.01:51
resnoIConrad01: should i configure the machine manger to give it an ip or what?01:51
Jordan_UfrankS2: Pulse just happens to use features of alsa that weren't well excercised before.01:51
wildbatBrunellus, hmm i dont see which one is your usb sdf? sdg?01:51

MaRk-IAdem: right clicking and selecting fileview or folders??02:01
IConrad01resno: Then you configured your machine to NAT, not Bridged, network.02:01
BrunellusAdem:  fluxbox is only a window manager.  to manage files, you'd need to run a separate filemanager--e.g. nautilus, midnight commander, etc02:01
Hobzfound it02:01
Jordan_UAdem: You need to start a file manager for that, fluxbox is just a window manager02:01
ZykoticK9Adem, fluxbox doesn't really come with a default file manager - launch nautilus or an alt file manager like rox02:01

IConrad01gbillings: To my knowledge, you can't.02:02
IConrad01resno: That's no problem.02:02
AdemIve already got a file manager though, all I was doing is changed my window managers, shouldnt my file manager from xfce change onto the fluxbox window manager?02:02
ZykoticK9gbillings, are you using nvidia?02:02
BrunellusAdem:  your filemanager isn't running by default.  you'd have to right-click and find it int he menu and run it02:02
gbillingsi am using ATI integrated graphics 64bit02:02
MaRk-IAdem: I believe they use different, sorry I dont use fluxbox02:02
BrunellusAdem:  note that there will be no automount daemon running in the bakcground, either so you'll have to mount unmount your own filesystems02:02

IConrad01Hobz: Try this, instead: deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/deluge-team/ppa/ubuntu lucid main02:08
Brunelluswildbat, so how the hell do I get root to stop automounting02:09
aliasxerogadem: i put up a definition for window managers above a bit02:09
Brunelluswildbat, while at the same time letting current user automount02:09
HobzIConrad01, that did it, lets see how she flies02:09
Ademok thanks alias, then what is a desktop environment02:09
IConrad01Hobz: You'll need to CNP this into a file: http://pastebin.com/krmb84Cu02:09
researcher1how can I install a tar.biz2 file in Ubuntu02:09
IConrad01And then save it as "Deluge.gpg"02:09
AdemSo let me get this straight, window manager is kind of like a windows theme?02:09
MaRk-IHobz:  try this:   sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deluge-team/ppa02:10
monoxide_or type sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 249AD24C02:10
BacklTrack@researcher1 -- Uncompress it then configure and make it02:10
IConrad01And then from Sources, switch to the "Authentication" tab, and click on "Import Key File" and browse to the Deluge.gpg file.02:10
BacklTrack@Adem -- just use the default and mess around with themes02:10
IConrad01Or CNP monoxide_'s CLI entry, yes. :)02:10
BacklTrackim sure there are a few aero-clones out there02:10
researcher1BackITrack Im quite new. can u guide details02:11
aliasxerogadem: no. they're more than a theme. they let you move and resize windows, places where they pop up, and lets your close and hide them among other things. a theme just makes them look pretty02:11
AdemBacklTrack:  just trying to expand my knowledge02:11
Brunelluswildbat, yeah root owns all my usb drive02:11
Brunelluswildbat, why is that?02:11
Jordan_UAdem: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desktop_environment There are probably better explanations than that, but it's decent.02:11
BacklTrackResearcher -- Which program are you trying to install02:11
AdemThanks :)02:11
Ademi will have a read now02:11
merlock18anyone have any idea if the support for ZFS is the same in Ubuntu as OpeSolaris or is the package you get in Ubuntu just enough to create zppols basically?02:11
=== Chazz is now known as chazz
researcher1BackITrack I am Trying to install italc-1.0.9.tar.bz202:12
wildbatBrunellus, i heard there is the same issue on the channel once but i didn't recall the solution, hmmm02:12
Ademoh.. so a desktop environment is more like a windows theme :p?02:12
BacklTrackif possible, just get it from the repository02:12
BacklTrackAdem...no it's much more02:12
Jordan_UAdem: No, it's *much* more than that.02:12
aliasxerogadem: no nowhere close02:12
resnoIConrad01: theres no space between --nic and 1 :). i got an error msg when i tried it. let me fire it up and test drive it02:12
BacklTrackadem, it's like a collection of libraries tools and UI's02:13
Hobzk, I'm just trying the .deb02:13
wildbatBrunellus, did you have usbmount ?02:13
ZykoticK9Hobz, if you are still having problems try adding the repository like "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deluge-team/ppa" the "sudo apt-get update" and see if you have updated packages after that.02:13
AdemA desktop environment typically consists of icons, windows, toolbars, folders, wallpapers,shortcuts and desktop widgets.02:13
IConrad01resno: Didn't know that.  Ahh, well.02:13
Ademisnt that practically what a theme is02:13
BacklTrackno. themes are kinda just like skins02:13
gigasoftmy ctrl+c and ctrl+v doesn't  work, help !02:13
BacklTrackjust for looks, really.02:13
Brunelluswildbat, yeah I have usbmount02:13
Brunelluswildbat, why02:13
monoxide_does anyone even use transmission?02:13
=== caplink811-log is now known as caplink811_log
ZykoticK9gigasoft, in a terminal?02:13
ennuithe people in #Mplayer say the the source code you can find in the repos for Mplayer is all outdated. I'm a newb when it comes to manual compiling.02:13
BacklTrackI use transmission02:13
Brunelluswildbat, please sent a quick answer:  I have to go in a second.02:13
IConrad01ZykoticK9: Hobz already got the repo added to his apt file.02:13
Ademmonoxide_:  I did on my previous distro but it just stopped working for some reason, i use deluge now02:13
ennuiI like gnome-mplayer but... so much tearing02:14
wildbatBrunellus, that is for server usb automount ~ that may be your problem02:14
Ademennui:  try vlc02:14
wildbatBrunellus, remove that02:14
monoxide_yea, transmission gives me slow slow slow peer/seed speeds vs deluge so I asked02:14
Brunelluswildbat got it.02:14
gigasoftZykoticK9, no in dolphyn02:14
monoxide_do you all experance the same issues?02:14
ZykoticK9IConrad01, that add command installs both the repo and the key and checks everything, very handy02:14
BacklTrackennui - i use a rythmbox or a curses bases player :D02:14
aliasxerogto be honest explaining a desktop environment to someone is really complicated02:14
AdemAnybody know how I can enable alt+ codes?02:14
IConrad01ZykoticK9: Never used it, actually.02:14
researcher1I want to install italc-1.0.9.tar.bz2 after modifying its .c source code in a few files. Any guidance please02:14
HobzI think I just need to update my system02:14
monoxide_fail Hobz02:14
gigasoftZykoticK9, i mean globaly doesnot work02:14
ZykoticK9gigasoft, i don't even know what dophyn is (i'm guessing kde)02:15
BacklTrackadem -- are you talking about like the numpad symbols02:15
IConrad01Hobz: execute:  " sudo su -c 'apt-get update && apt-get install deluge*' "02:15
Hobz"dpkg: status database area is locked by another process"02:15
gigasoftZykoticK9, yes02:15
IConrad01Exit Synaptic.02:15
BacklTrackIm not sure actually, i though that was a windows thing...02:15
Ademthey don't work for me, maybe its the language I picked or something02:15
ZykoticK9gigasoft, sorry man i haven't used kde in YEARS02:15
ennuioh, my beautiful MKV files.. sob.. sob...02:15
HobzIConrad01, when I apt-get update I get lots of failed downloads02:15
Hobzthat might be it02:15
monoxide_you have another package manager going02:15
aliasxerogadem: i think thats just a windows thing02:15
monoxide_one at a time02:15
gigasoftZykoticK9, thanks anyway02:16
monoxide_close synaptic etc02:16
Ademoh, dammit :(02:16
IConrad01Hobz: That's not bad, actually.  It's language support files.02:16
Adembut mac has them too :o?02:16
IConrad01That happens.02:16
Hobzwoops, forgot to close synaptic02:16
aliasxerogadem: they do?02:16
Hobzok, it's moving ahead now02:16
BacklTrackLinux has all the symbols - just not access to them from numpad02:16
Hobzwoops, dependency problems02:16
Ademdammit :(02:16
Ricasolneed some help getting my display back working after i removed my nvidia graphics card02:16

IConrad01Ricasol: Execute, as root:  "Xorg -configure"02:17
wildbatBrunellus, ^^02:17
Viking667hm. Weird. How do I turn on the "partner" repo? I don't see it in "Software Sources" unless I'm not looking hard enough or something.02:17
aliasxerogbackltrack: how do you think you access them?02:17
BacklTrackAdem -- well you can just start learning elementary java.  It accesses unicode with ease02:17
IConrad01Viking667: It's in "other software"02:18
aliasxerogadem: or c++, unicode isn't too hard on that02:18
Viking667hm. Back that off, I just found an older one commented out in sources.list02:18
ShayneFalcoGood evening everyone. I am trying to install ndiswrapper. I do not have an internet connection on my Ubuntu-run computer but I do have a laptop with an internet connection. I also have my Ubuntu CD-Rom. However, when I try to load my CD-Rom into my Synaptic-Package Manager, it says it can not detect it and to load another one. Any thoughts?02:18
BacklTrackHmmm if i need unicode symbols -- which i haven't yet . THere are unicode symbols online you can copy/paste  .  and im sure there are programs that display a large amount or all of the unicode chars.02:18
Viking667But I'll check out "Other software" just in case.02:18
RicasolI did that conrad02:18
Brunelluswildbat, thank you, problem solved.02:18
Ricasoland it didn't work02:18
Ricasolcan u pm me or something02:18
IConrad01Ricasol: What error did you get?02:18
wildbatBrunellus, you're welcome02:19
Steven___hi there, i'm getting a lot of mail daemons from drweb. what can i do?02:19

ShayneFalcoAirlink 101.02:20

Viking667... weird. That shows me the same thing, but not for Lucid, only for Jaunty and Hardy.02:21
marcuyhi, is there anyone who knows how to use SCIM for writing in chinese (ubuntu 10.04)?02:21
ShayneFalcoAirlink101 - 607002:21
atomjepesHi, I cannot reinstall upstart sysv-rc insserv02:21
DanaGthere's serial console log of my boot.02:21
Jordan_Umarcuy: I think iBus is prefered now, but I don't have any experience with either.02:22
BacklTrackGnome shell -- no i havent .  but i don't think i will either .02:22
DanaGAt that point, it hangs, doing absolutely nothing.02:22
darthviesWhich was the first linux distro to have a GUI?02:22
Longhorn|XPdarthvies, i'm gonna guess slackware :P02:22
Jordan_Umarcuy: Might ask in #ubuntu-cn02:22
DaekdroomDoes Ubuntu lucid's radeon driver have support for ATI RS482 [Xpress X200M]02:22
atomjepestried aptititude -f install and still says dpkg: `update-rc.d' not found on PATH.02:22
darthviesTought it would be. Thanks :D02:22
marcuyJordan_U, thanks for the tips02:22
ShayneFalcoAny reason why Synaptic Package Manager would not detect the CD-ROM?02:23
Jordan_Umarcuy: You're welcome.02:23
aliasxerogDanaG: thats really weird02:23
Venimhow do i go about reinstalling X?02:23
phil_Hello.  I just restarted my X server at the instruction of some software.  Now, when boot up Ubuntu and I log in, I cannot see any toolbars, only a desktop background.  If I restart X again (using Ctrl + Alt + Backspace), I can log in again and it works!  But each time I boot, I get the same problem.  Also, all of my desktop icons disappeared!  Does anyone know what's going on?02:23
aliasxerogDanaG: what fs is your home partition02:24
IConrad01Venim: Just run X -configure from rescue mode.02:24
IConrad01That's "X -configure"02:24
Jordan_UShayneFalco: Do you know the actual chipset?02:24
AdemOk I was just testing things out and I went Right click> first option(forget name)>File manager>Desktop something02:24
DanaGWell, those ones that failed are my OLD drive, under /media.02:24
Ademand now I dont have the right click optiton with the fluxbox list anymore02:24
DanaGMy new drive is an SSD.  One partition on new drive for root; ext4.02:24
DanaGoLD one was ext4 home and ext4 root.02:24
VenimIConrad01: segfault02:25
monoxide_ShayneFalco, your chipset is ralink RT2860 try this Forum post for help02:25
Viking667Hey, is 10.04 called Lucid or Maverick?02:25
DanaGIt's especially odd that it doesn't give me a recovery console.02:25
IConrad01Venim: Okay...  try this:02:25
IConrad01Venim: /etc/init.d/networking start02:25
aliasxerogDanaG: its not even getting that far in the boot02:25
atomjepesdpkg: `update-rc.d' not found on PATH.02:25
DanaGI mean, not even an initramfs console.02:26
VenimIConrad01: networking stop/waiting02:26
IConrad01Venim: apt-get install -d X02:26
greenjonViking667: Lucid Lynx02:26
IConrad01Venim: You get no further than that?02:26
VenimIConrad01: no02:26
monoxide_no luck Hobz02:26
DanaGEvery once in a while, it will boot successfully.02:26
Venimalso, its xserver, not x02:26
Venimmy bad02:26
Venimi think02:27
DanaGOh, and something keeps writing AT+GCAP to my serial console.02:27
DanaGIt does it exactly 3 times at boot.02:27
Hobzmonoxide_, just tired, I'm pretty sure I need to redo this system02:27
Viking667Then why does Lucid Lynx show up on archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/dists with a release date of 29-Oct-2009  ?02:27
monoxide_whats the SSL port for this ubuntu sever?02:27
monoxide_to connect to irc02:27
VenimIConrad01: when i upgraded to 10.04, shit go messed up02:27
IConrad01Venim:  We'll try something different,t hen.02:27
Jordan_UDanaG: Can you try passing a bogus root=device? Maybe then it will fail before the hang giving you an initramfs prompt where you can check /dev/disk/by-id and other things.02:27
Venimand so i went and tried reinstalling xserver02:27
IConrad01Venim: Reboot your machine.  Get to the GRUB menu.02:27
starnostarlan traffic is interfering with my vnstat database for monitoring my bandwidth, does anyone know of a per-process bandwidth monitor or one that allows for exclusions...maybe cacti?02:27
VenimIConrad01: and?02:28
merlock18anyone have any idea if the support for ZFS is the same in Ubuntu as OpeSolaris or is the package you get in Ubuntu just enough to create zppols basically?02:28
Viking667Ah well. At least I added the right line in sources.list02:28
IConrad01When you're in the grub menu, enter "e" -- and then "e" again when you've navigated to the kernel-line.02:28
IConrad01Add a "3" to the end of the line you see.02:28
IConrad01Then hit "enter", and "b".02:28
greenjonViking667: i have no clue lol. i'm sure it's a simple answer, but i dunno honestly02:28
DanaGI think it's a race condition.02:28
Venimwhich line is the kernel one?02:28
DanaGOr something.02:28
aliasxerogDanaG: or even try mounting your disks using their device name and not uuid02:28
IConrad01This will boot you into runlevel 3, which is no-GUI w/ Networking.02:28
greenjonViking667: at least you did put the right line in there :D02:29
DanaGIt works, sometimes.  It doesn't work, other times.02:29
IConrad01Venim: vmlinuz02:29
Venimso what should that line look like?02:29
DanaGalt-sysrq-I gave me a root console.02:29
Venimatm its linux /vmlinuz....... root=UUID=....3\02:29
IConrad01Venim: Doesn't matter.  You're just adding a "3" to the end of it.02:29
MaRk-Imonoxide_: port 7000 and 707002:29
AdemHow do I logout of fluxbox? exit in terminal isn't working its jut closing the terminal, and the right click list thing is back to the old one so I cant right click>exit02:29
IConrad01Nothing attached to it, just "3"02:29

Viking667hey, where'd you go?02:30
Jordan_UIConrad01: Those instructions are out of date in two ways :) 1: with grub2 you press ctlr+x to execute the edited entry 2: upstart doesn't have a runlevel 3 :)02:30
DanaGah, looks like it's trying to find /dev/disk/by-uuid when udev has not yet created those symlinks!02:30
BacklTrackHa, good.02:30
Viking667BacklTrack: I do.02:30
IConrad01Jordan_U: Well, now I know.02:31
Jordan_UVenim: Just choose the "recovery mode" option02:31
Viking667DanaG: ahhhhhhhh.02:31
Ademno option, "open new window", "create launcher etc", open terminal here, desktop settings and properties, no logout02:31

ShayneFalcomonoxide: No, I did not, sorry. I will look it up.02:37
monoxideit might be a solution you can use02:37
Dr_WillisAdem:  it pays to read the fluxbox docs.02:37
Dr_WillisAdem:  that goes for most of the window managers out there. :)02:38
AdemIm more of a gui guy02:38

Dr_WillisAdem:  you can use fluxbox with gnome.02:38

Ademor bash shell02:40
ShayneFalcoMonoxide, which will be helpful... But I have no way of accessing any of this at the moment. I am running on another computer as we speak. All I want to do is detect my CD-Rom in Synaptic right now... (If that makes sense)02:40

Venimi broke X02:41
Venimand need to fix it02:41
Venimwell, xserver*02:41
matt____Dr_Willis - thanks. i'm having trouble getting audio *and* video to the amp. (it's a digital amp.) amp receives no signal from hdmi cable from graphics card from ubuntu machine. nvidia-settings doesn't detect amp (or tv) as a device; am i likely to need to plug hdmi straight into tv to get nvidia to detect the device through hdmi? analog sound/video isn't an option with my graphics card....02:41
matt____...many thanks again.02:41
arveVenim; We're in the same boat D:02:41
Jordan_UVenim: Yes, you can probably fix X from a LiveCD02:41
doyleOK, how do I address messages like this? Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment02:41
monoxideShayneFalco, no problem. I do not have a solution for your synaptic manager but you can download the driver listed in the forum and move it using a usb stick to the ubuntu machine to perform what needs to be completed02:41
astropirate_opinion question: what is the best screen capture program for say... tutorials?02:41
VenimJordan_U: i updated to 10.04 and some stuff went weird, and I think I ended up breaking xserver02:41
greezmunkeyShayneFalco: so, internet access is all you really need right now? Right?02:42
Jordan_Udoyle: You need to give context when asking about error messages.02:42
ShayneFalcoGreez: Yes.02:42
arveapparently I added a repository (ppa?) called X Updates02:42

ShayneFalcoGreez: I have a Compaq, and I have a wireless USB adapter. It is not being detected, which is why I want to install ndiswrapper.02:43
Dr_Willismatt____:  theres known issues with hdmi audio  and nvidia in some cases. So it may be the thing just cant work as an audio out at this time. 10.10 may fix it. or the newer nvidia drivers. I would check the forums for your exact card. Ive never used a hdmi auidio card yet.02:43

greezmunkeyShayneFalco: does it have an ethernet interface? If so, setup internet connection sharing on the win 7 box, and connect that to your ubuntu box's ethernet interface. You may need a crossover cable, but if you can get a link light, then you should be good to go.02:44

Viking667Because I'm getting "Brian Paul" for a vendor04:22
Viking667Bunbury: start terminal, run this:   glxinfo | less04:22
SGottl7227action does that fix make a difference if i am using 10.04 xubuntu version04:22
SGottl7227instead of ubuntu version04:23
soreauViking667: You have a bogus libGL.so in your path, most likely04:23
MaRk-ISGottl7227: if your vga is intel most likely04:23
Venimhow do i go about fixing my OS from the live cd04:23

Venimso how can i reinstall X from this live CD04:26
ActionParsnipdavrok: litle red light on the bottom04:26

Viking667researcher1: hm.04:27
VenimTootoot222: how do I go about doing that?04:27
rwwand most optical mice don't use lasers ;)04:27
Tootoot222researcher1: you might just have to run ``make'' then04:27
beihaixiaozhuno body in this chat room?04:27
ZykoticK9Venim, boot grub recovery mode if possible might be easier then chrooting but see the !grub2 factoid for chroot instructions04:27
Viking667that's why I quoted the word laser.04:28
ActionParsnipSGottl7227: you can sort the colours later, get a dislpay first then you can configure video04:28

Tootoot222Venim: where sda1 is your ubuntu partition04:28
researcher1why not configure command working04:28
SGottl7227online upgrade tookk 4 h ours04:28
Viking667researcher1: might not be in the correct directory04:29
Tootoot222researcher1: they might not use autoconfigure to make configure scripts04:29
bazhangresearcher1, compiling?04:29
SGottl7227disc install took about 75 minutes04:29
ActionParsnipresearcher1: some compiles dont need it, did you read the nistall text file? It will tell you04:29
Viking667not everyone uses autoconf - some people can't stand it. Wonder if they use cmake?04:29
SGottl7227386 archetecture is much faster04:29

davroksilly me   it works now!!!04:29
ActionParsnipSGottl7227: not necessarily04:29
researcher1Install text file suggest to use .configure command04:29
Viking667researcher1: we don't know. try this:  find . -iname "readme*"04:30
SGottl7227i installed from 9.04 to 10.04 online with a very fast connection .. but my G3 computer is very slow. it took 4 hours to upgrade04:30
Tootoot222ActionParsnip: i think he's comparing to ppc, not i686 or x64 =p04:30
Viking667SGottl7227: was that the 603E or the 604?04:30
SGottl7227then on restart the screen only showed the 10.04 start u p screen with the 5 blinking lights for a ffew seconds. then it went blank.. dark04:31
Tootoot222SGottl7227: wrong graphics driver most likely04:31
Tootoot222what graphics card did you say you haveL04:31
SGottl7227same with disc install. except it too about 75 minutes to install instead of 4 h ours04:31
ActionParsnipTootoot222: still the same stands, it's not outright faster , better , stronger. Each chip type has advantages and may excell in different situations :)04:31
SGottl7227well why would 9.04 work and not 10.0404:31
ubottuPowerPC.  Formerly used by Apple for the Macintosh line of computers. Variants are now used in popular gaming consoles. PPC was a fully supported Ubuntu architecture up to and including edgy. It is now a community port, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PowerPCFAQ04:31
ActionParsnipSGottl7227: different kernel for one04:31
Tootoot222SGottl7227: if you have an nvidia card, in 9.04 they defaulted to the closed source nv drivers, where in 10.04 they do the open source ones04:32
SGottl7227oh so its not supported anymore. .thats why it didn't work?04:32
Tootoot222which may have probrems04:32
MaRk-ISGottl7227: http://www.uluga.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1480685&page=304:32

Viking667or RST/S04:35
SGottl7227do they have that version available for PPC?04:35
ActionParsnipmainly because puppy rocks hard04:35

bobashow do i make ubuntu persistent changes on usb key?04:36
daroluA friend of mine got a quite powerful virus (windows user of course), now his USB flashdrive has two partitions, one of them has a CD-ROM filesystem (apparently) so it is read only, I can't elminate this partition nor delete the files in it (the actual virus), I have tried gparted, parted and fdisk; no results. Any ideas?04:36
SGottl7227i have used puppy on this Ibm computer.. 386 architecture04:36
davrokok so may I help?04:36
Tootoot222darolu: sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb04:37
bobasi added in lilo for kernel options "persistent" but that only allows me to modify and add files to the usb key04:37
Tootoot222if you don't mind obliterating the drive04:37
SGottl7227but i want it to run on my apple g304:37
rwwSGottl7227: try asking in #puppylinux; other distros are offtopic for #ubuntu04:37

SGottl7227yes.. but this G3 is still ok. except the videos are very choppy. it is too slow a precessor04:37
MaRk-ITootoot222: you need the U3 uninstaller04:38
daroluTootoot222: it is a U3\ System\ File/ so there is no hope?04:38

Tootoot222it doesn't hurt as long as you don't have anything on it you may not want to lose04:38
SGottl7227i will be back. going to check puppy web site04:38
ActionParsnipSGottl7227: the ppc version will run on the g3 fine, you just need the video drivers to be nice and it will run nice04:39

ZykoticK9bobas, just as an FYI if you do install onto USB be sure to manually configure where grub is installed too!04:42
bobasis it possible to use wubi installer to install ubuntu onto usb key?04:42
IConrad01bobas: What are you trying to set up?04:42
Tootoot222rocket16: something like the ubuntu-software-center with the nice big "education" button?04:42
bobasIConrad01, ubuntu on usb key persistent changes04:42
Tootoot222IConrad01: live USB with persistant storage04:42
IConrad01Define "persistent changes"04:42
bobasIConrad01, where like i apt-get something itstays04:43
Tootoot222but he only has ubuntu on the USB he wants to install to04:43
MaRk-Ibobas: better use unetbootin04:43
Jordan_Ubobas: You can setup the Ubuntu netboot installer to boot, which will then be able to install to the USB key.04:43
rocket16Tootoot222: Well, Software centre is for installation, I meant something like KOffice, which runs all of them, without having to open separately, :)04:43
IConrad01Actually, I can think of a way to do that.04:43
IConrad01But it's convoluted.04:43
bobasJordan_U, i see04:43
IConrad01Dump the *.iso file onto your USB stick.04:43
IConrad01It'll need to be reformatted ext3 or ext4, first.04:43
IConrad01Once that's on there, do a grub-install to make the usb key a boot device.04:44
=== hellothere is now known as thatdude
pakairhow do I install System|Admin|services in 10.04?04:44
=== thatdude is now known as thatdude1
Viking667don't you usually have to extract the casper stuff?04:44
IConrad01You'll set up the grub.cfg file to loopback into the *.iso file.04:44
bobasIConrad01, ahi see04:44
Jordan_Ubobas: What do you plan to do if the netboot install fails part way through though?04:44
IConrad01That won't be persistent...04:44
ActionParsnipbobas: if you use usb-creator-gtk you can put the CD onto a USB and boot from that and run it off that afair04:44
ubottuFor information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent04:44
IConrad01BUT -- you can chroot into the USB key itself -- and *that* will have persistent changes.04:45

IConrad01Don't need netboot CD.04:45
Tootoot222IConrad01: the ubuntu-startup-disk creator (within ubuntu) can install ubuntu to a USB without actually /installing/ to it, it's in a casper file like Viking667 said04:45
thatdude1Hi guys. Here's the deal. I want to use my macbook pro (5,4 late 2009) with the ubuntu live cd. The problem is that the wireless drivers aren't included in the livecd so when I want to use wireless I need to connect my laptop to an ethernet cable. Is there a way I can download .deb packages of the drivers and have them on a flash drive so i can install them without a wired internet connection? thanks04:45
Jordan_UIConrad01: You can't install to the device you're booted from, except with the netboot CD.04:45
Viking667hm. I've done similar things with OpenBSD's CDROM, NetBSD's install files and FreeBSD's DVD, as well as about three different sorts of Linux.04:46
Tootoot222thatdude1: do you know what drivers you need?04:46
Jordan_Ubobas: I need to leave for about 15 minutes, then I can help you do this (I've done it before).04:46
Tootoot222thatdude1: or what wireless card you have?04:46
bobasJordan_U, im trying to see if i can resize partition using gparted04:46
Tootoot222bobas: you can't resize /04:46
Tootoot222while it's mounted04:46
IConrad01Jordan_U: You can't format a disk you're booting from either.04:46
Viking667The only problem I struck was with FreeBSD, but it wouldn't have been a problem if the 'target' machine actually supported booting from a USB drive to begin with.04:47
IConrad01So you can't do any of what I was saying if you're booting from the USB key.04:47
Evil_When I try to load up a livecd, it takes me to a terminal instead; how can I fix this?04:47
thatdude1Tootoot222, well i know that when i boot up with the livecd if i go to the hardware drivers menu in "sytem-> administration" i can see the name of the recommend drivers to install/enable..04:47
dumdumzfinally upgraded to 10.04 LTS, props to the devs. it's really nice so far04:47
bobaskernel is outdated though04:47
Tootoot222thatdude1: you can make a liveUSB with persistant storage, and install the drivers from there; that way they don't get lost when you try to reboot into them like a CD04:47
Viking667dumdumz: on what platform?04:48
Tootoot222Evil_: what ubuntu version?04:48
IConrad01Eh.  My approach was better tailored to making a true multiboot USB key.04:48
ActionParsnipEvil_: did you check the cd for defects?04:48
Bunburydoes anyone get total monitor/keyb/mouse lockup after multimedia use?04:48
defryskbobas, any module missing in kernel ?04:48
Tootoot222Evil_: try to press ctrl+alt+F7 or F804:48
IConrad01I have the i386 Ubuntu 10.04, amd64 Ubuntu 10.04, Backtrack 4, and memtest on my USB key.04:48
bobasdefrysk, not that i know of04:48
thatdude1Tootoot222, sounds like a plan, but the problem is i have an macbook pro and I dont think u can boot ubuntu off usb on it (mac os you can) or if it's possible there is some mad trickery/hackery involved04:48
Evil_ActionParsnip, yes, it was literally freshly burned and put in the drive04:49
thatdude1Tootoot222, so I need to get .deb files or something04:49
defryskbobas, then explain the outdated bit ?04:49
Viking667Or, if none of that works,   Alt-SysRQ-R, then go Ctl-Alt-F104:49
ActionParsnipEvil_: yes but did you run the cd self check?04:49
ActionParsnipEvil_: its part of the cd once you first boot to it04:49

Bunburywill that run ok04:56
Lantiziaabhi_nav, Is Sent inside Inbox?04:56
Jordan_UIConrad01: With the netboot CD everything is loaded into RAM, so you can install to the device you loaded it from.04:56

Viking667By the way, where would I look to find old drivers, i.e. for summa-class tablets?04:59
Viking667I note that support for summa stopped rather abruptly04:59

ActionParsnipclayg: http://maketecheasier.com/change-login-and-boot-screen-in-ubuntu-lucid/2010/05/1305:02
Tootoot222Viking667: system > administration > software sources > other software > add05:02
Tootoot222apt-get update & upgrade05:02
ActionParsnipclayg: easy stuff, run a command, log off, change screen, log on, runn command05:02
Tootoot222will probably be a lot of X-related packages05:03
Viking667ah. That's what I wanted to know. Thank you, it's not in the list of options I had... I just needed the 'xorg-edgers' bit05:03
ramaelwolfhello, I need help please!, my graphical interface suddenly stops working and it resets itself (just like when you hit ctrl + alt + backspace), and it hapens at least once a day, today I was burning a dvd and the GUI restarted and of course the dvd was nothing but garbage, any idea how to solve this?, the sistem sent me to this link http://blogs.gnome.org/hughsie/2009/08/17/gnome-power-manager-and-blanking-removal-of-bodges/05:03
ActionParsnipViking667: xorg edgers is very bleeding edge so you may get issues05:03
claygActionParsnip, thanks for that guide, I'll give it a shot -the mention of an "advanced" tab in system>admin has me curious, do you know how to enable it?05:03

SamualIs there any way to get a search box (e.g. for google or beagle) _inside_ the gnome panel itself? Right now the only search feature is a button which opens up an application/small window05:06
SamualI haven't been able to find any applets for it05:06

SamualActionParsnip, eh not _exactly_ what i'm looking for, it still has a drop down window, but I guess that's the best I can do (I saw it earlier btw)05:11
SamualI'll still see if I can find one in the panel itself05:11
paradellohow i install my grafic card on Ubuntu? The model is ATI Radeon 920005:12
ActionParsnipSamual: could just use find in a terminal ;)05:12

Tootoot222mostly when i have 2 monitors enabled05:15
Tootoot222if i disable the 2nd monitor it goes away05:15
Viking667And my bottom panel doesn't seem to appear until I change desktops05:15

Tootoot222i routinely have it hooked into a hdmi port going to my TV05:16
sinnedamwell last night it was cut off tonight its part of the wireless network icon thats missing05:16
Viking667woo... heavy.05:16
ennuichogyDan: I removed it. I will put it back soon. I was trying to see if it was my window managers that were causing all the tearing in Mplayer and VLC. I even turned off compositing. nope. Must be the poopy NVIDIA drivers(yes I have sync to vblank enabled)  though no one is responding in their channel. Wanted to know if there is a repo and what the newest(dev?) version was.05:16
Serephsinnedam: yes thats a bug as far as i know, i know how to get around it but not fix it05:16
Serephsinnedam: right click the top panel and go to properties and play with the expand and show hide buttons checkboxes and it should fix itself05:17
Serephsinnedam: I'm going to see if its a reported but or what05:17

jsecEvening all. On my laptop (MacBook), even after a full charge my battery life indicator reads 0%. I've had a few times where my laptop dies because I have no idea how much battery life I have left. Any ideas?05:54
ActionParsnipRedcl0ud: have you contacted belkin?05:55
Redcl0udActionParsnip I am still fully getting used to Ubuntu05:55
NinoScriptViking667, like how to design Analog Computers or use OPAMPS05:55
Viking667geez. You're not after a small field there, dude.05:55
MaRk-Ipcilatency: you want to change brightness?05:55
pcilatencylike what exactly is the device name05:55
ActionParsnipRedcl0ud: we all are dude, every day is a school day05:55
Redcl0udActionParsnip: I been looking online along with their website but no luck so far05:56
PinaViking667: ok, i installed the mplayer-gui. how i can open it?05:56
pcilatencyno latency05:56
Viking667I mean, you're talking about all sorts of off-topic stuff there, like design of capacitors, EME scatter, all sorts of things.05:56
Viking667Pina: look under Multimedia now05:56
L-----Din 10.04, can the Evolution Mail Client minimize to Indicator05:56
PinaViking667: is isnt there05:56
SamualIs there any way to make my applications like e.g. rhythmbox use the notification area instead of the indicator applet again? The indicator applet is a retarded and inconsistent design, it leaves out all my other applications and it just clashes with my theme05:56

NinoScriptViking667, yes I know, I just need some guidance, and nobody listens in ##electronics :( they're always busy talking about horses or pepsi :S05:57

pcilatencywould the device name be simply nvidia?05:57

ChrazRittbtw ActionParsnip i looked into the fan controls on this machine, and there are 2 places where i can have an effect, in bios, 'fan always on' enable or disable. the other is a software fan speed control in windows 7. i think i need something that will allow me to get at the fan speed control06:01
abhi_navoldezcat, hmm06:01
Viking667How are you installing mplayer-gui ?06:02

Viking667i.e. what program are you using?06:02
olskolircwow thanks NinoScript06:02
PinaViking667: by synaptic06:02

abhi_navhey, which is ubuntu manual channel?06:05

pcilatencyi've gotten buffer errors from bad disks or cd/rw dvd/rw's that have not been properly erased..06:22
bazhangAnell, why would you need to move files there06:22
tigrangAnell use sudo - only if you know what you're doing06:22
AnellBecause I need to move I certification to etc/ssl/certs06:22
imaekubutom: I'm pretty positive the upper cd drive (the one that isn't being recognized) is fully functional under any other OS06:22
bazhangAnell, use sudo then06:23
intokAnyone got an acer aspire one D250? After a crash in the touchpad driver on UNR I can't get the synaptics touch pad to work in UNR 10.4 or XP SP306:23

tigrangAnell sudo cp or gksu nautilus for gui06:23
imaekpcilatency: it isn't the disk; I'm trying to play DVD's, all of which return buffer i/o errors.06:23
AnellOkay, thanks06:23
ubutomimaek, master/slave settings correct? pretty positive? You mean it worked in other oses?06:23
enthdegreeIt says something about 'not being able to synch the vfs' Can I fix that?06:23
enthdegreefor some reason after a distro upgrade I can't boot with the default kernel06:23
pcilatencyimek have you installed it's drivers? i had an old drive that needed it's own drivers and wasnt detectable..without them?06:23
imaekubutom: I have no idea how to even go about checking that, regrettably. I have had it functional under XP in the past.06:24
imaekThough there was always issues.06:24
pcilatencywhat kinda drive is it?06:25
pcilatencymaker /model?06:25
ubutomimaek, the drives have a setting on the back, you can change it with a pin, there is also alsmost always a little picture describing how to set a drive in master /slave or cable select modes06:25
pcilatencysome newer ones will auto select if the jumper thingy is removed...don't lose it06:26
ubutomimaek, first drive is master, second has to be slave or cable select for example06:26
ubutomimaek, you could also unplug the faulty one and see if the other is recognized then, I personally youldn't keep a malfunctioning drive in my box06:26
pcilatency^^ it could cause all kinds of trouble06:27
AnellWould the command for copying content be just (the file) -- (the directory)?06:27
imaekubutom: I'm going to try that.06:27
AnellBecause when I use cp --help, I see to two Dashes and the message saying it copies content.06:28
pcilatencyugh well lets see if these settings conflict =c06:28
ubutomimaek, some old ide cables also don't support the necessary bandwidth and won't work with two drives attached to them, but that'S just guessing now06:28
imaekThat actually sounds quite reasonable. The secondary drive is a DVD burner which is not so important anymore.06:29
ubutomimaek, or better said, they will work, but at slower speeds and with problems06:29
pcilatencyyea the older less dense ones..what is it 40 some pins..and then the best one is 80 some wires/pins?06:29

pcilatencyyou can tell them apart easily..most mainstream manufacturers will use the 40 less dense and cheaper..it is well worth finding an 80 wire cable06:30
ubutomimaek, what have you done? unplugged the second?06:30

phil_I'm having a problem with Ubuntu where, after I log in, I cannot see anything but the desktop background.  I can still run programs with Alt + F2, etc., but I don't see the taskbars or desktop icons.  Any ideas?06:37
bazhangylmfos, yes06:37
Tootoot222ylmfos: this channel is for english, there are sub-channels for other languages06:37
bazhangylmfos, what language did you need06:37
Tootoot222phil_: do you have multiple monitors?06:38
phil_Tootoot222: No06:38
abhi_bazhang, yes ,i have hardware switch...06:38
pcilatencyask the best way you know how...06:38
ubutomheh bazhang I had an usb tv-stick that I didn't shut down properly with windows(pressed powerbutton 5 seconds to turn it off) and then it wouldn't work with ubuntu anymore until I booted up windows and shut it down properly ;D06:38
Tootoot222or some sort of DVI/HDMI plug in06:38
ylmfosoh,thank you .I'm from China06:38
abhi_bazhang, wlano is not working06:38
bazhangylmfos, in #ubuntu-cn then06:38
hiexpophil was it fine before06:38
phil_Tootoot222: It was working before.  I did an update just before that.  Maybe that broke something.06:38
bazhangylmfos, /join #ubuntu-cn06:38
TLoFPhow do I change permission of all files in a directory so that only I have read write and execute privalages06:38
phil_hiexpo: Yes06:38
TLoFPno body else, even root should be able to see06:38
hiexpophil reset sesktop06:38
bazhangabhi_, you need to set it to on then reboot with it that way06:38
pcilatencyphil yes you may need to re-install your keybord drivers06:39
Tootoot222TLoFP: chmod -R 7xx dir/06:39
Tootoot222where xx is whatever permissions you want for group and world06:39
phil_hiexpo: You'll have to be more specific.  I don't know what you mean.06:39
TLoFPdoes 0 mean none?06:39
phil_pcilatency: Why?06:39
Tootoot222TLoFP: yes06:39
phil_pcilatency: My keyboard works fine.06:39
bazhangpcilatency, there are no keyboard drivers06:39
hiexposomeone tell phil the command to reset desktop please i can't remember it06:39
pcilatencyi thought for sure multimedia keybords had a specific driver set..06:40
abhi_ok... i will check that...06:40
bazhanghiexpo, the panels?06:40
pcilatencyif i'm wrong i'm sorry06:40
phil_My panels are missing as well as my desktop icons.06:40
hiexpobazhang,  to reset desktop to original settings06:40
abhi_bazhang, second problem I am facing is that... my brightness is set to maximum each time i  boot to ubuntu... this is not happening on windows 706:40
ubottuTo reset the gnome panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »06:41
bazhangabhi_, one problem at a time, okay?06:41
greezmunkeygconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel06:41
hiexpothanks ^ phil_06:41
pcilatencydoes 10.4 use ava:hi?06:41
abhi_okay... let me check with reboot...06:41
bazhangpcilatency, yep06:42
pcilatencywhat exactly would that do for an eth?06:42
phil_That command restored my panels, but my desktop icons are still missing.06:42
bazhangphil_,  using compiz or metacity06:42
abhi_navphil_, run nautilus?06:42
phil_Also, I'm not sure if they will stay.  I was able to restore them myself by typing Ctrl + Alt + Backspace, but they disappear again when I restart my computer.06:43
phil_bazhang: No06:43
phil_abhi_nav: What do you mean?  You want me to run it?06:43
bazhangphil_, it was not a yes or no question06:43
abhi_navphil_, yes in terminal06:43
greezmunkeyphil_: is your /home on a seperate drive?06:43
phil_abhi_nav: It just gives me a File Browser, but my desktop icons don't appear.06:43
phil_greezmunkey: No06:43
phil_Also, I don't get a menu when I right-click the desktop.06:44
abhi_navphil_, ok. it worked for me when in was 9.1006:44
pcilatencybbl ty all06:44
hiexpoit probally changed directories do to an up grade just make new ones for your desktop easy06:44
TLoFPwhats secure copy command06:44
bazhangphil_, compiz or metacity (choose one)06:44
Tootoot222TLoFP: scp ?06:44
TLoFPno work  :(06:44
phil_bazhang: Are you saying that you're certain I am running one of those?06:45
phil_bazhang: Or that I ought to be?06:45
bazhangphil_, do you wish to give more info, or should we guess06:45
phil_bazhang: I don't know what you want me to tell you.06:45
TLoFPTootoot222: oh guess I must navigate to the dir first :P06:45
phil_bazhang: I came here for help.  If I knew what else to tell you, I would.06:45
bazhangphil_, you are using gnome? lxde? xfce4? kde4?06:46
Tootoot222phil_: if you drag something from nautilus onto the desktop does it make an icon there?06:46
abhi_navhi abhi_06:46
phil_bazhang: I'm using Ubuntu 10.04.06:46
Tootoot222bazhang: i'm pretty sure gnome, as the gconf command worked06:46
abhi_bazhang, i figure out the problem... if i am keeping the multimedia keys first then function key second then i m able to turn on and off the wifi..06:46
phil_bazhang: It comes with gnome.06:46
bazhangphil_, and you have compiz enabled?06:46
abhi_abhi_nav, hi06:47
bazhangabhi_, fixed?06:47
phil_Tootoot222: I can't drag anything to the deskto from the file browser.  It just "flies" back when I try to drag something.06:47
abhi_bazhang, right now i m able to use the wifi.. i this need to be fixed...06:47
abhi_i think*06:47
Tootoot222bazhang: ubuntu 10.04 defaults to compiz06:47
phil_bazhang: I don't believe so.  I never explicitly installed it.  The only way I have it is if it came with the base install, or it was an automatic update.06:48
bazhangphil_, try alt-f2  then type metacity --replace06:48
Tootoot222phil_: they've defaulted it now06:48
abhi_bazhang,  what do u think...06:48
foolguyis there a way to dim the screen on my laptop further than the "sun" slider allows me to?06:48
phil_bazhang: So, compiz is installed by default?  Why would I type anything to do with metacity if you just told me I had either compiz or metacity.06:48
bazhangabhi_, is the wifi working now?06:48
Tootoot222foolguy: without physically disabling the backlight, probably not06:49
phil_bazhang: I typed what you said and all my windows flash for a second, but that's it.  Nothing changes after that.06:49
foolguythat stinks, because when I ran windows it would go almost all the way to no backlight06:49
Tootoot222phil_: you're running compiz if you didn't explicitly start metacity; we want you to start metacity to see if it's a compiz probem06:49
=== eric is now known as Guest90680
phil_Tootoot222: I just typed what he said.06:50
phil_By the way, I don't care about any of my config settings, so if there's something I can delete to get it to go back to default settings, I will do that.06:50
abhi_bazhang, yes now it is working.06:52
phil_I guess you guys don't know what's wrong?  Is there anything else I can tell you?06:53
sweetpiphil_: you could try adding a new user and login with that to see if its a config issue06:54
phil_sweetpi: Okay, I will do that.  I'll come back after I try that.06:54
epure_how do I switch the ok/cancel buttons in dialog boxes ?06:55
epure_i want ok to be in the left.. like in windows06:55
bazhangepure_, what version of ubuntu06:55
Tootoot222epure_: i'm pretty sure that's an application spesfic setting06:56
Tootoot222not something global06:56
bazhangepure_, did you switch themes?06:56
epure_i cchanged the appearance and some colors, but i didn't install new themes06:56
bazhangepure_, the default theme has them all on the left06:56
mizerydeariaI have a question specifically for this channel only.  Yesterday or two days ago (I forgot) I was killed and as soon as I reconnected I was banned only from this channel.  I couldn't get anyone to assist me in figuring out why.06:56

Tootoot222you can just ``cat'' them, i suppose07:06
phil_Did I mention that when I press Ctrl + Alt + Backspace and log in again, the taskbar appears?  However, each time I restart the computer and try to log in, it gives me a blank desktop again.  No matter what I do, I can't get the desktop icons to show up though.07:06

abhi_navwhat is going wrong with me? i join /j #linux it takes me to ##linux and I joined /j #freenode it takes me to an empty channel. ghost?07:08
Viking667abhi_nav: there's a reason for the ##linux name, but I can't remember what that is.07:08
Viking667by the way, #freenode isn't empty07:09
abhi_navViking667, but that channel #Linux was there some time ago07:09
Tootoot222##channels are just un-offical channels07:09
RfooTfoohas anyone used the cocoa front end for pure-ftpd? Im having a problem with it controlling the backend.07:09
Viking667abhi_nav: probably was, but I haven't seen anythingmuch aside from a bounce to ##linux in #linux07:09

Viking667how long ago was "some time ago"?07:10
Viking667I've been on Freenode for... sheesh, nearly ten years.07:10
seidoswhat's the difference between vim and vi?07:14
airtonixan "m" ?07:15
Viking667Vi originates back in the seventies, vim expands on vi heaps.07:15
seidosthat's what I thought, but double checking, because yanking lines is problematic for me for some reason07:15
Viking667yanking how many lines?07:15
seidosI'm trying just 107:15
Viking6673yy yanks three lines07:15
seidosbut I keep getting 11 and/or 2107:15
Viking667ahh. yy yanks one line07:15
seidosah, two y's07:15
seidosI was doing 1y07:16
seidosthanks Viking66707:16
Viking667's okay.07:16
Viking667will help out heaps in vim.07:16
seidoswill it say how many lines are yanked at the bottom?07:16
Viking667not sure, unless you have the ruler turned on.07:16
Viking667Might say in the status/command line.07:16
Tootoot222mine says "x lines yanked"07:16
seidoswhen I yanked 11 lines and 21 lines it said07:16
Tootoot222until you move the screen07:17
seidosbut when I do yy it doesn't say anything07:17
Viking667try 3yy07:17
Tootoot222because you have no motion07:17
Tootoot222i bet if you did 1yy it would say 1 line yanked07:17
seidos3yy worked07:17
seidosno 1yy didn't say 1 line yanked07:17
Tootoot222hmm you're right07:17
seidos3yy says 3 lines yanked07:17
phil_Back again.  I fixed the problem.  This page had the solution: http://georgia.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9371319  I do not know why it works.07:17

Tootoot222but 3yy does07:17
FloodBot3Tootoot222: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.07:17
* seidos opens up the source code for vim and fixes it07:18
seidosheh, not07:18
Viking667the insides of vim must be nearly as weird as less.07:18
seidosyy does yank the line though, I just get no feedback07:18
seidosoh well, I'll just yank and paste then delete the line instead of yanking deleting and pasting07:19
seidosthanks Tootoot222 and Viking66707:19
phil_Could someone possibly read the posts on the page I posted and explain why that solution works?07:19
Tootoot222phil_: that is strange that that would work07:19
Viking667Neat trick I like to tease gedit/nano/kate advocates with:  grab seven lines, go down 15 lines, place six copies of those lines, then go to the end of the file, and add another two copies. all in less than thirty keystrokes.07:20
Tootoot222and without the mouse!07:20
Viking667that's .... eleven07:20
phil_Tootoot222: I believe it has something to do with nvidia software.  I am using an nvidia driver and whatever software it used.  I think it messed up my xorg.conf.07:20

Tootoot222greezmunkey: i'm sure you could do something with tr '[a-z]' '[A-Z]'07:24
Viking667no no. There's an internal function to do that, I'm sure.07:25
Viking667but would require deep vim-fu07:25
Viking667(i.e. read all the way through :help)07:25
Tootoot222lol, running !)tr '[a-z]' '[A-Z]' makes everything to the end of the file uppercase07:25
Viking667At least emacs owns with its use of buffers.07:26
greezmunkeyAlright, now I'm tweaking vi...thanks07:26
Viking667But for everything else, I think vim has it hands down, AND it does'nt try to be an OS.07:26

delinquentmethanks Tootoot22207:42
ActionParsnipdelinquentme: semicolon is not a new line, it let's you run commands on one line line Tootoot222 says. It means "run the next command even if the previous one failed"07:43
delinquentmeahhhh ok07:43

ShrekLappyarunkumar413, but judging by the name, qtbsch it leads me to belive its build on qt, which is a different window manager which ubuntu doesnt have. kubuntu does because kde is built on it07:54

LantiziaIdleOne, you have to configure everything yourselv08:07

abhi_navActionParsnip, just curiosity. if someone placed keylogger in some useful app and I installed that ap from ppa. then wll that keylogger wll be able sent info to its owner? or my ubuntu firewall wll identify it as virus and stop it?08:13
airtonixmadurax86, tl;dr version : install apt-file and us it to search for your files08:14
ActionParsniparunkumar413: there's a wine ppa and a mozila ppa too. It will save you having to mess with all this compiling lark08:14
rwwabhi_nav: Ubuntu's firewall doesn't filter outgoing traffic by default, so no, it wouldn't stop it08:14
ActionParsnipabhi_nav: not sure08:14
abhi_navrww , ActionParsnip then is there any way I can protect my self frm such threats?08:14
rwwabhi_nav: don't download programs from random websites08:15
madurax86airtonix: gee thats easy :P08:15
ActionParsnipabhi_nav: stick to the official repos only08:15
airtonixabhi_nav, that requires a firewall that operates at layer 7 of the OSI model... there isn't such a thing in the ubuntu repos yet08:15
abhi_navrww,  no no not random. I am talking about launchpad08:15
abhi_navActionParsnip, ok I wll08:15
rwwabhi_nav: Launchpad PPAs are not in any way official or necessarily trustworthy.08:15
abhi_navairtonix, can i configure it manually?08:15
arunkumar413ActionParsnip: i dont like wine becoz some windows viruses can run on wine08:15
abhi_navrww, hmm ok08:15
ActionParsnipabhi_nav: could also run scans for stuff every now and again. Depends on how many tinfoil hats you have08:16
abhi_navarunkumar413, what you are trying to do?08:16
airtonixabhi_nav, maybe but then you'd still need to make it work with a virus scanner that also looks for sensitive data... and i think clamscand only scans files for viruses being opened via network08:16
coz_arunkumar413,   I doubt any windows virus can actually "run" on linux  though   ... and I dont recall hearing of any that atually have broken through08:16
ActionParsniparunkumar413: true but you can simply delete the wine config folder. I only used it as an example. Its not to be taken as anything absolute08:16
abhi_navActionParsnip, means? I dont understand08:17
abhi_navairtonix, snort? ossec?08:17
wildbat_laptopubuntu don't give the option to suspend/sleep(it got hibernates thou) in the shutdown menu~ what should i do to enable it? 10.04, E6600, ASUS P5B08:17
arunkumar413coz_ if windows app can run wine.windows virus can also run on wine08:17
ActionParsnipabhi_nav: go sling tinfoil hat into wikipedia08:17
airtonixabhi_nav, they are not programs that will scan for transmission of your passwords and act on such events08:17
abhi_navActionParsnip, ok08:17

ubutombawn, may be incorrect, but I think sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop should install kde, further configuration should happen after installing it, you may be get asked if you want to set kdm as default display manager09:04
bawni have done this with gnome on kubuntu09:05
bawnit aint that easy09:05

ikoniajelly_eyed_jim: it's personal choice, if you have 4GB of ram, 64bit is a better option, it's pretty much that basic10:24

ikoniajelly_eyed_jim: there is some good documentation on ubuntu.com explaining the differences10:24
jelly_eyed_jimi have 4 gig so yeah10:24
airtonixarunkumar413, first of all you need to tell us how you choose to install software : via gui or terminal  ?10:24
jelly_eyed_jimwhat programs won't work in 64 bit10:25
LinuxManDanI am running Ubuntu 10 and when I run software I don't see the programs listed on the bottom of the screen.  How can I fix it?10:25
airdemi need java runtime. what pkg am i looking for?10:25
LinuxManDanCould it be the Desktop Effects?10:25
airtonixarunkumar413, and what makes you think there is an upgrade ?10:25
ikoniajelly_eyed_jim: none really, flash is always a common issue, but there is a 32bit wrapper to get around that10:25
airtonixLinuxManDan, does logging out and back in again fix it ?10:25
arunkumar413airtonix: ma getting error 107 very frequently10:25
LinuxManDanEven rebooting does nothing.10:26
airtonixLinuxManDan, does turning off desktop effects fix it ?10:26
LinuxManDanDon't know.  Haven't done it.10:26
LinuxManDanGood point.10:26
airtonixLinuxManDan, there are a few other things you can try first though10:26
suigenerisairdem sun-java6-jre probably10:27
airtonixarunkumar413, did you install chrome from ppa or default ubuntu repos ?10:27
CristpyMellowhey hold up10:27
LinuxManDanI turned off Visual Effects and still nothing.  SHould I reboot?10:27
CristpyMellowlinux rocks10:28

LinuxManDanLinux is a good OS.10:28
ikoniaCristpyMellow: ok - please keep in mind this is a support channel only, for chatter try #ubuntu-offtopic10:28
LinuxManDanI still like WIndows 9x/XP but refuse to use Windows V/710:28
LinuxManDanWhat other things should I try airtonix?10:31
oCean_LinuxManDan: right-click on panel, choose Add to panel, choose Window List10:31
airtonixarunkumar413, first check that you have the window-list applet on the panel10:31
