cameron242I have a question: If I download the 32 bit version of this (http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php), how would I install it?00:00
civixiermo__ I think we have lost eachother on the way. I have an xbox, connected to my computer via a crossover cable. I want to be able to fall asleep while watching something. Both the xbox and the TV turn theirself off when inactive, i want the computer to do the same thing.00:00
wizard_dugger5688, from a website added the repo and it installed00:00

Euphusinnstaled it two times, never works00:02
mo__civixier: ah yes ;) so .. hmmm... let sleepd watch the network device you use to connect to the xbox and set the --tx-min to something useful ... like more than 100kbit or so ...00:02
dugger5688wizard_: What graphics card?00:02
mo__civixier: why don't you manually tell the computer to shutdown / fall asleep after a certain time? that's what I usually do ;)00:02
jvaihey, i just upgraded to 10.04, installed on an ibm thinkpad z60m, with radeon x600 graphics card... x keeps stalling!  can i down grade back to 8.04?00:02
wizard_dugger5688, ATI catalyst00:03
civixiermo__ That was my original question, if the computer counts itself as inactive if the network is "running" :)00:03
Euphusslidinghorn, ; i have a lucid 10.04, downloaded and installed tux2 and racer twice.. when i click on it nothing happens.00:03
civixiermo__ but it doesnt?00:03
mo__civixier: I wasn't here back then :p but yes, that's possible :)00:03
cameron242I have a question: If I download the 32 bit version of this (http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php), how would I install it?00:03
slidinghornEuphus, run it from the terminal and post the error(s) to http://paste.ubuntu.com00:03
mo__civixier: you told sleepd to behave this way and it didn't work?00:03
dugger5688wizard_: closed source drivers or open source?00:04
civixiermo__ ahh, thank you ^^ so... how do I set the computer to hibernate after a certain time of inactivity? :D00:04
civixiermo__ I havent done anything so far00:04

wizard_dugger5688, I've installed opengl, mfegg codecs and everything nothing wont play video nor did boxee how can I find that out mate, I installed ubunut and everything worked00:04
cameron242I have a question: If I download the 32 bit version of this (http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php), how would I install it?00:05
Loshkijvai: unless you made a full backup before you upgraded, you can't downgrade. Your closest alternative would be to reinstall 8.04 from scratch, or fix your x11 problem (easier said than done). Sorry...00:05

slidinghornEuphus, see what ubottu said00:05
mo__civixier: man 8 pm-suspend  - you can use it like this ... sleep 3600; pm-suspend; that would let it wait for an hour, then execute suspend00:06
cameron242Euphus: I have tried everything. I am literally like 2 hours new to this stuff.00:06
cameron242I thought this was support chat00:06
wizard_dugger5688, it says opengl in graphics card info00:06
mo__civixier: ugly thingy is, that if you ctrl-c the sleep, it'll go immediatly to suspend ... hmmm sleep 3600 && pm-suspend should do the trick ... sry about the mixup before00:06

claygI'm using a netbook and trying to install a few games through wine/playonlinux.       I'm having some problems that I think might be because wine/pol is looking for an actual cd-rom drive instead of the images im mounting with gmount.  Is there anyway to "fool" ubuntu into thinking a directory is the cdrom drive?00:20
IdleOnecameron242: follow Jordan_U00:20
claygLike on diablo it's telling me it doesn't have the play cd in drive, while the play cd is mounted - installation works, playing does not, same with WOW00:20
LinuxUser123hi i seem to be having an issue where the resolution on my insignia 22 inch monitor will not change to anything larger than 1024 X 768.  How can I fix this?  The nvidia settings will allow me to select something higher but then the monitor goes black.00:20
claygwell playcd image is mounted00:20
lwilliamsHi.  I did a system update yesterday night and when I turned the computer on today, my home directory vanished.  I think ecryptfs screwed something up00:21
KarthJudgen: ok, swapped cards, this one appears in the device manager, but not in sound options00:21
EuphusLinuxUser123,  sure you have the right driver00:21
mo__clayg: copyprotection & linux emulation is always a pain ... do you really want to bother?00:21
Euphus?00:21
dugger5688clayg: go to winecfg and set one of the drives to the directory that the CD is mounted to.00:22
thune3matyd: the screen going irreversibly black qualifies as a lockup. You can hit shift on boot and add "i915.modeset=1" after "quiet splash" to the grub line. If this fixes your problem then you can make this permanent using the commands in the yellow box of 'Workaround A'00:22
lwilliamsI was wondering if I could get help recovering my home folder from .Private00:22
mo__clayg: afaik, with the latest diablo2 patch you don't need the play cd any more if you copy the MQPs over ;)00:22
LinuxUser123Euphus: no, but it does the same thing on the proprietary nvidia driver as the non-proprietary driver00:22
EuphusLinuxUser123,  and your card is a nvidia?00:23
Jordan_Ucameron242: Once you have them downloaded put them somewhere where they will be easy to find within Ubuntu, like C:\. Tell me when you're done with that.00:23

lwilliamswhat happened was I originally had encryption installed.  Then I disabled it somehow (I believe by editing some settings file, but I forget what).  I then copied my files over to a clean home folder (with no .Private) , and all was good for a few weeks.  Then last night, ubuntu did an update and I think overwrote a settings file and this morning, when I turned the machien on, no home folder but a .private folder00:33

cameron242gonna write that code you said00:35
mo__lwilliams: I'd try using a livecd to check the home partition directly, without ubuntu trying to mount the encrypted stuff. perhaps something got mixed up there. just a shot in the dark though ..00:35
lwilliamslike use the same instructions, but boot with a livecd first?00:36
cameron242Jordan_U: I ran that line and they didn't show00:36
lwilliamsis it possible to see if the key I wrote down is correct?00:36
mo__lwilliams: you think your data was decrypted - so check if it is there, unencrypted. if it isn't, try to decrypt it and then copy it over to a unencrypted filesys.00:36
cameron242Jordan_U: I ran that line and they didn't show00:37
lwilliamsI think the update from last night  somehow went and re-encrypted it00:37
thebishophello00:38
cameron242Jordan_U: These are all files from C:\ no C:\ubuntu00:38
cameron242*not00:38
mo__lwilliams: I don't think it would re-encrypt it, but perhaps think it is encrypted and cannot decrypt it - althought it isnt at all. and therefore get mixed up..... dunno. livecd was just an idea.00:38
thebishopis anyone else having miserable performance with Rhythmbox and Evince?  I suspect it's a gvfs or fuse issue00:38
Jordan_Ucameron242: Since you put them in C:\ubuntu\ the proper command to check for the files would be "ls /host/ubuntu"00:38

lee__Question, I deleted my linux partition in windows and when I reboot with the windows installation CD and select repair to fix the mbr it can't find the harddrive? But if I boot a live cd and look at Gparted I see the drive and the files right there. Anyone know what the problem can be?01:14

PlasmastarI am not too happy.01:15
PlasmastarWhile installing Kubuntu, the installer crashed when I pulled it out of a sleep like mode.01:15
PlasmastarWhy is the installer going into sleep mode in the first place?01:16
acairelee__: if you're using a SATA hdd it's possible the windows cd doesn't have drivers for it - is it xp?01:16
lee__acaire:  Yes01:16
lee__acaire:  So i'm probably going to have to hook up maybe a usb floppy disk with drivers and press F6 right at the beginning of the windows cd startup01:17
acairelee__: you'll need to use something like nLite to slipstream the SATA drivers into a new cd - I haven't had too much success in the past01:17
acaireyes if you have a floppy disk drive that's the best bet.01:17

lee__acaire:  So probably, when I first got my laptop if I had put in a windows XP cd, it would of told me it couldn't find the harddrive?01:20
lee__acaire: or did this happen because I delete the linux partition?01:21
realubotnikolaos: I don't think that there is a way to turn a Wubi installation into a "real" Ubuntu installation. the installation process is straight forward and if you haven't installed a lot of software and done a lot of customization then it would be very easy ton install Ubuntu once again from Live CD.01:21
hiexponikolaos,  yes fresh install start from scratch if you want tt right i would suggest01:21
Mqueuecan anyone help me mount usb drive for Panasonic (Matsushita) Lumix DMC-FZ10 Camera01:21

nikolaosThanks for the quick responses!01:22
realubotnikolaos: Then  would suggest to install it from scratch booting the Live CD.01:22
realubot*Then I would01:22

hiexponikolaos,  kool live cd will walk u through it /// by the way use 9.10 if u want a smooth install and operating system 10.04 still has many bugs01:23

Sam_Fisherslidinghorn, any idea how to get this triple booter working without leaving Supergrub disk in the drive?01:24
nikolaosThanks, but I'm a Windows-user - I'd be freaked out if there weren't any bugs :P01:24
qracaire: yes I have, unfortunately it has similar problems. the separate bash instances in screen do not share an agent unless screen is a child process of the agent already.  The only option that leaves is to run all my connections into a shared screen session which is not very appealing.01:24
slidinghornSam_Fisher, no idea...never tried more than 2 os's01:24

slidinghornbobbytek, evolution's a full suite including tasks, calendars, etc.  thunderbird (without extensions) is strictly email  -- if you're looking for speed and don't need all the extras, I'd probably recommend thunderbird, as it doesn't have all the extras evolution has01:28

hiexporealubot,   like compiling many apps can't say that in here or i will get in trouble walking on thin ice  in here got in trouble a week ago for using lol  so minding my p's and q's but you talk to me in pentoo or backtrack01:32

avi_hey, can anyone help me compile this app? It's hosted on git, and I've never used hit before.01:34
* hiexpo realubot no prob 01:34
acairerealubot: maybe if the fixmbr didn't work, but if the hdd isn't visible at all, it's drivers.01:34

geowanyhiexpo, yes! I'm using aptoncd01:40
lee__acaire: thats whats interesting, the live cd works flawlessly, its once its installed. It never gets to the login screen, it show the cursor and then the cursors disappears and it just loops.01:40

ennui I seem to be unable to chown my external HDD from linux (I need to get write permission). GParted shows it's filesystem as hfs+. I don't want to reformat it as I have data on there. Is there a way to set permission at mount so I can write to this partition on my external?01:40
RickyWhhow can i see the whole output of top if it's too large?01:40
realubotgeowany: Maybe this is something that would be of interest: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/07/install-mintbackup-linux-mint-backup.html01:40
hiexpogeowany,  well it will show all this available before you save if you cleaned your system there gone01:41

syntaxmanI'm using funtoo, so the ubuntu setup is a little foreign to me02:15
Jordan_Ushazbotmcnasty: If you're getting IO errors use gnu_ddrescue instead (note that there is a non-gnu program of the same name, that is not what you want)02:15
cameron242_Jordan_U: I'm back02:16
Jordan_Ucameron242_: Did you run those commands?02:16
cameron242_Yeah02:16
cameron242_I have some questions:02:16
cameron242_The first one02:16
cameron242_is that the first code asked for a pass which I put in02:16
cameron242_the second didn't02:16
Othorsyntaxman, /etc/dbus-1/system.d/wpa_supplicant.conf02:16
cameron242_did I do something wrong?02:17
wreckcreationsQuick question: What would prevent me from changing the other's permissions on a folder that I own?02:17
Loshkishazbotmcnasty: dd should work but I find you need to specify block size, count and conv=notrunc to get a faithful copy. Also, converting to avi is time consuming, and you will lose quality by going to/from avi format. If you're getting read errors from the disk, it's because it's damaged or needs cleaning. Try using windex on it.02:17
Jordan_Ucameron242_: No, sudo remembers your authorization for a few minutes.02:17
cameron242_ok02:17
cameron242_good02:17
cameron242_so what now?02:17
=== Zeike is now known as brandonj
IdleOnecameron242: when you run sudo it asks for your password, the system also remembers it for 15 minutes so any command ran afterwards with sudo won't ask for your pass. you didn't do anything wrong02:17
cameron242_Was anything supposed to happen?02:17
syntaxmanOthor: I looked in there... that's not even /close/ to being a real wpa_supplicant.conf02:17
Loshkicameron242: stop pressing enter so much. Been taking lessons from shazbotmcnasty?02:17
cameron242_like more text appear?02:18
cameron242_sorry lol02:18
cameron242_I am used to that way02:18
IdleOnecameron242: the bot is gonna end up kicking you02:18
syntaxmanOthor: it's an XML file rather than what the manpage for wpa_supplicant.conf describes02:18
Loshkicameron242: I know, but it makes it harder for everyone to read because of the extra scrolling...02:18
Jordan_Ucameron242_: If the commands worked then you'll now have directories named "b43" and "b43-legacy" in /lib/firmware/. You can check that with "ls /lib/firmware/"02:18
cameron242_Okay02:18
cameron242_Can I get a full list of instructions?02:19
Jordan_Ucameron242_: If those directories exist then just reboot and hopefully you'll have wireless.02:19
Othorsyntaxman, yeah mine looks like XML too02:19
shazbotmcnastyLoshki: what would you suggest for block size, count, etc02:19
shazbotmcnastywhat do I put? :302:19
cameron242_Ok, lemme reboot then02:19
wreckcreationsBTW that problem occured when running PCManFM as root as well. The folder is shared by samba if it means anything02:19
cameron242_I am on my laptop now, it could be 10-15 mins02:19
trismsyntaxman: ubuntu uses network-manager by default, so there won't be a wpa_supplicant.conf, unless you disable network-manager and use /etc/network/interfaces, then you can create one with wpa_passphrase02:19
cameron242_brb then02:19
Loshkishazbotmcnasty: please stop typing enter so much. Let me look at my script and see how it does it...02:20
syntaxmantrism: OK.. I don't see where nm keeps net specific settings either.02:21
syntaxmantrism: I'll hunt some more02:21
trismsyntaxman: run nm-connection-editor02:21
Loshkishazbotmcnasty: first, I type: isoinfo -d -i /dev/sr002:21
trismsyntaxman: system connections are kept in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/02:22
trismsyntaxman: but you don't generally need to edit those02:22
syntaxmanNice to know it exists, though.02:23
trismsyntaxman: without nm-connection-editor I mean02:23
Loshkishazbotmcnasty: see the logical block size (almost always 2048) and the volume size (for my dvd, it's 3287649). Then do dd if=/dev/sr0 bs=2048 count=3287649 conv=notrunc > /disk/dvd.iso02:24
syntaxmantrism: It's empty.  That's weird.02:24
shazbotmcnastyoh okay02:24
cameron242_W00T!02:24
cameron242_it worked!02:24
shazbotmcnastydoes the number 3287649 come from anything Loshki ?02:25
cameron242_Jordan_U: Thank you SO much! Can I get a wesbite name to tell my friends?02:25
jdolananyone else get black areas on your screen when using Thunderbird in the LTS?02:25
jdolanATI fglx driver.02:25
jdolani *think* the black areas go away if i turn on compiz, but that breaks OpenGL across the whole system so...02:26
trismsyntaxman: it only creates system connections if you run nm-connection-editor with gksudo or check the "Available to all users" box in the config, I don't know where the per-user connections are kept02:26
Loshkishazbotmcnasty: yes, it comes from the  isoinfo -d -i /dev/sr0 command. It's the size of your dvd in blocks. It's different for every dvd02:26
cameron242_Okay02:27
cameron242_now one more questiong02:27
shazbotmcnastyoh okay02:27
shazbotmcnastyLoshki: I got another IO error, and I already cleaned it off02:27
shazbotmcnastyI02:27
cameron242_I tried to install gimp using 'apt-get install gimp' but I got an error02:27

Milki can anyone help me with a boot up problem. my girlfriend accidentally removed power from the computer and now everytime i boot up i get ubuntu is running in low grapics mode and i cant continue02:28
Loshkishazbotmcnasty: it may be damaged, or scratched, or something. Some readers do better than others when performing error correction. Do you have a different drive you can try it with?02:29
shazbotmcnastyyeah, got the same error too:/02:29
IdleOnecameron242_: show me the exact command you are running please02:29

IdleOnecameron242: can you pastebin /etc/apt/sources.list02:31

Dmstrdjand the discs boot fine on anything else02:33
ddilingerrealubot: will that sync between firefox and chrome though?  i thought dropbox was just raw file storage02:33
IdleOnecameron242_: then open paste.ubuntu.com and copy paste the contents of the file to the pastebin and give us the URL02:33
vmermaco: how so?02:34
Dmstrdjthe bt4 i just installed on usb, is running great on my netbook right now live02:34

DarkXwould anyone mind helping me with a wireless networking problem i'm having?02:37
LoshkiDmstrdj: well, if you're not fed up with trying, I would try 8.04, as it's very stable & mature and runs most anywhere...02:37
Dmstrdjthe tower was running bt for the longest time and i just dont understand whats holding it up now02:37
Dmstrdji have tried every thing i can find02:37
orangeyvmer: so, I have my happy pulseaudio life. I want to capture the aggregate output and send it to an alsa or pulse or whatever device02:37
orangeyso that a command line program can access it02:37
orangeyjust like now I can access my microphone and line-in02:38
bastidrazorDmstrdj: maybe you should be asking about backtrack in #backtrack-linux02:38
vmeranybody play with eucalyptus?02:38
IdleOnecameron242_: it is important to remember that Linux is case sensitive. Anyway open Synaptic Package manager from System > Administration menu02:38
Dmstrdjwanted to use the new ubuntu, but i tried 9.10, and 10.4 now and nothing works02:38
Dmstrdjwill never boot02:38
realubotddilinger: Yes, I saw that. You probably will find another solution to sync between Chromium and Firefox.02:38
realubot*will have to find02:38
hiexpoDmstrdj,  yes backtrack is based on ubuntu  but ubuntu does not supply support for it / backtrack has it'sown support channel #backtrack-linux02:39
IdleOnecameron242_: in the search box type gimp and see what it says02:39
Dmstrdjyes i know im there too02:39

IdleOneDmstrdj: ok, good now be patient in there and wait for an answer02:39
cameron242_IdleOne: What file am I looking for?02:40

Fishscene1If I recall correctly, you can't browse shares. You can only connect directly to a share.02:54

xevDarkStar1, I want to gain freespace. I got 3gb only03:05
DarkStar1avi_: It depends on how long you'll be away from home for. I mean if you know your IP before you leave, whilst you're away the lease could expire and the IP change03:05
Compilingyes03:05
Compilingavi_ id recommend setting up dyndns03:06

unclemantisi have spent 2 days trying to get a FTPSD running with no luck. I am then told to connect via SSH using SFTP so I did that and it worked! Now 5 hours later I try again and it won't connect. I then try to SSH into the account and I get the welcome to Ubuntu and the document url and stuff and then this "Connection to gigdates.com closed." WTF happened!?03:25
idkCompiling: i've seen homepages with structured source viewing, it was somehow easy to upload, maintain and publish =)03:25

hellrabbitHonestly I am not sure as to the spesifics on S2 and S3, I'm not around any production class machines right now... typically on Dell servers and HP those options tend to be the second to last tab in bios. I think it has to do with the type of backup power supply your using.05:09

stewart_ubunutu newb here. I have an old version of me tv installed but cannot figure out how to upgrade to the newest05:18
MaRk-IKnifeySpooney: ok05:18
KnifeySpooneyMaRk-I, nevermind that wasn't it, do you have any tips? the information in /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme is correct but not being used05:18
racerdis there anyway to manipulate files that have root permissions?05:18
xangualolzor: you can not use repositories of one version into another05:18
MaRk-IKnifeySpooney: no idea, gdm theme is one thing , cursors are another05:19
KnifeySpooneyMaRk-I, well I have the custom theme installed as default for all users, but when logging out it gets reset to DMZ-White05:19
BranCQuick question: Can I use aptitude on a cli ubuntu install to install packages from a cd? The box has no internet connection.05:20
MaRk-Igdm theme is in System/administration/login window, and cursor are in system/preferences/appearance/customize button/ cursors05:20

jjast73I'm being lazy, I just google'd " how to add a PPA ubuntu"05:25
xanguajjast73: not really good idea use the daily build05:25
xanguajjast73: this looks better https://launchpad.net/~chromium-daily/+archive/stable ppa:chromium-daily/stable05:26
stewart_xangua: I found https://launchpad.net/~me-tv-development/+archive/ppa but have no clue. I think I need to buy a book lol05:28
xanguastewart_: like jjast73 said: sudo add-apt-repository "ppa's name"05:28
upgrdmanthune3, it wasnt a shutdown. the pc turns off, as if it lost power. i could turn it back on, and it would work off of the battery power from the ups05:28
upgrdmanthune3, and i do not have any ups software installed except for gnome's monitor05:29
lolzorThere should be a way to use a lucid repositorie in order to install crhome in jaunty05:29

xanguastewart_: in this case seeing the ppa you found it would be: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:me-tv-development/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade05:30
lolzorIn order to use chrome I'll have to download the chrome package in the lucid repos?, then use apt-get install locally? The orig.tar.tz05:30
xangualolzor: or just add the stable ppa https://launchpad.net/~chromium-daily/+archive/stable05:31
stewart_xangua: THANKS!05:31
thune3upgrdman: oh. i assumed you had some hookup to tell the os to shutdown when the ups battery got low. If the only connection from the UPS is the power to the computer, then is sound like there is enough of a power interruption (or low enough voltage) that your computer turns off.05:33

Zelozelosis there any that when i copy text to keep it on the clip board even if i closed the program i copied it from, as in, if i copied a few words out of a web page and then closed the browser to still be able to paste them somewhere?05:35
FraxtilI need to be able to view / edit ALL id3 tags in an mp3 file, including nonstandard tags used by iTunes like "Album Artist". What program should I use?05:36
racerdwhat is the command for creating files?05:36
jjast73racerd: touch05:36
macoFraxtil: audio tagtool can do it05:36
Fraxtilracerd: can you be more specific? do you just need a blank file?05:36
macoracerd: touch05:36
MaRk-IZelozelos: you can install either "klipper" (although is a kde app still works) or glipper for gnome05:36
racerdyes a blank file i can edit05:37
Zelozelosahh ok i tried to search for one, but didnt know what strings to pull on ;)05:37
xanguaZelozelos: use a clip board manager like parcellite or if you preffer the indicators use pastie (need to add a PPA)05:37
racerdfrom command line05:37
jjast73racerd: from a command shell type: touch05:37
xanguaMaRk-I Zelozelosglipper sucks :S05:37
Zelozelosxangua, why?05:37
jjast73racerd: %> touch "filename"05:38
racerdsweet05:38
jjast73racerd: if using the guild file manager, just right click and choose create document05:38
jjast73racerd: if using the*05:39
racerddoesn't work for root05:39
xanguaZelozelos: because it's last version was released almost 3 years ago05:39
jjast73racerd: show me the command u ran05:39
racerdsudo touch 99-android.rules05:39
MaRk-Isebsebseb: ??05:39
Zelozelosxangua, well age does not = suckiness to me, any specific reasons?05:39
jjast73racerd: ok what dir are u in?05:39
MaRk-Idont PM me without asking me first thanks05:39
Fraxtilmaco: unless I'm not seeing something, audio tag tool doesn't show nonstandard tags- just the usual ones, same as easytag for the most part.05:39
racerd/etc/udev/rules.d/05:40
macoFraxtil: there should be a button to view all tags...05:40
MaRk-Isebsebseb: again DONT PM me without asking first, thanks05:40
xanguaZelozelos: well i remember i tried it and after some minutes purged it inmediatly05:40
xanguammm a long time ago05:40
macoFraxtil: like it shows the default ones and then theres a button underneath that says the number of nonstandard ones05:40
jjast73racerd were u prompted for a password when you used sudo?05:40
racerdnah05:40
racerdwas using it earlier05:40
Fraxtilmaco: I see the "Advanced >" button, but none of my files seem to have any id3v2 tags at all. Maybe I'm missing a library?05:41
macosebsebseb: you know the rules about PMing05:41
racerdso terminal didn't prompt me again05:41
jjast73racerd: ok how about "touch /tmp/testing"05:41
Zelozelosxangua, mm ok, what ws the one u suggested and how would i go about gettin it?05:41
macoFraxtil: posssibly it just uses id3v1 in iTunes? hrmph05:41
jjast73racerd: then run  "sudo touch /tmp/testing2"05:41
xanguaZelozelos: sudo apt-get install parcellite05:41
jjast73racerd: then check the permissions05:41
racerdthen i ran05:41
racerdsudo gedit 99-android.rules05:41
xanguaZelozelos: there is also pastie if you like more the 'indicators'05:42
Zelozelosxangua, kk ill remember that i already installed glipper lemme check it out05:42
Fraxtilmaco: I edited all the tags in EasyTag, so they should be using id3v2.4 - it's just that easytag didn't remove the "album artist" field, which messes up my track order in iTunes.05:42
jjast73racerd: yup you can run gedit, vim, pico "filename"05:42
racerdi just need to create a rules file in a folder that had root permissions05:42
racerdyeah05:42
racerdi know :)05:42
racerdi used to use slackware05:42
macoFraxtil: i wonder if the album artist one is v1 though... i have removed nonstandard tags using audio tagtool's advanced button05:42
jjast73racerd, root owns all files.05:42
jjast73racerd: so how could you not create a file in /etc as root using sudo?05:43
racerdsudo is a root command05:43
racerdubuntu removed "root"05:43
racerdso it allowed me to make a root command in a root only permissions folder05:44
Fraxtilmaco: I see an option to remove all tags, which I guess would do the trick, but I don't want to have to rebuild the tags I want all over again.05:44
jjast73racerd: sudo is "super user do" it's not root. 2nd. the root account in ubuntu is still there.05:44
macoFraxtil: can you right click the unwanted one maybe?05:44
racerdit still works05:44
racerdwouldn't in the ui05:44
jjast73racerd: the ui is different.05:44
sebsebsebmaco: Was just looking at some back log,  and I noticed how he recommend 8.10 to someone earlier,  so told him it wasn't supported anymore.  Altough yeah I suppouse I can still reply to something from an hour or so ago in the channel, really.05:45
tucemiuxI want to edit a video in kino so I can upload to youtube, which video standard would give me the best resolution to use on a youtube video, NTSC or PAL?05:45
racerdi know05:45
jjast73racerd: ubuntu really doesn't want ppl using the root account from a shell05:45
Fraxtilmaco: I can't see any id3v2 tags (in simple or advanced mode), and the id3v1 tab shows all my wanted tags, but doesn't have an "advanced" option with which I can view the nonstandard tags.05:45
jjast73racerd: new users is more like it.05:45
racerdwell i am trying to get fastboot to work05:46
macoFraxtil: oh :-/ mmm maybe kid3 ?05:46

rokyCan anyone help me with fixing my sound on my laptop? It plays but at such extremely low levels It's barely audible. With everything maxed. Any ideas?05:47
sebsebsebMaRk-I: Sure, but about as good as using 6.10 really,  since 8.10 isn't supported anymore either.  That was my point.  Altough I didn't get to say that in pm, but now I have in here.05:49
MaRk-Isebsebseb: point taken05:49

racerdgot it to work :)05:51
racerdfastboot commands and adb commands work in the terminal directly05:51
xanguaZelozelos: try launching 'glipper'05:51
MaRk-IZelozelos: right click task bar and "add to panel" select glipper05:51
Fraxtilmaco: finally getting somewhere with a bash script I found on the net; combining the output from this with a binary called "id3v2" should solve my problem.05:52
macoFraxtil: alright. good luck05:52
racerdjjast73 | thanks for pointing me in the right direction05:52
Zelozelosxangua i tried glipper from a terminal, no command found, MaRk-I i trid that too, its not there05:52

ImaLamerinsomniac1, then apt-get purge i believe - then you can install again with defaults06:19

LoshkiSwedeMike: we should probably move to -offtopic, but I see too many people come here with encrypted partitions they can no longer decrypt, or lvms they can no longer access. Combining the two just multiplies the complexity...06:33
SuNk8ubuntu_,  are you getting the grub prompt like 'grub>' or are you getting Error 17?06:33
ubuntu_SuNk8, no i get just this error06:34
SuNk8ubuntu_, the partition is messed up, r u dualbooting windows by any chance?06:34
ubuntu_SuNk8,no06:35
fmered2kic I can unlock with cryptsetup but how do i tell the alt installer to use that decrypted lvm?06:35
red2kicfme: Point it to the correct path in partitions?06:36
SwedeMikeLoshki: yes, I agree, it's a lot harder to rescue such a system, especially if you add raid1 of the system drive in there as well. Security and flexibility is complex.06:36
fmeit only wants to make new partitions06:36
red2kicfme: Don't make a new partition? Don't delete it? I would suggest you to make a backup first.06:36

SuNk8ubuntu_, In 99% cases, your data is still there.06:40
ubuntu_SuNk8,yess i think that was probloum06:40
Loshkifme: I sympathize, but it's pretty much your only solid protection against making some horrendous mistake while using the installer...06:40
ubuntu_SuNk8, what should i do?06:40
fmei know =[06:40
AfCWhat is the file in /etc (presumably) that dictates the locale of a system?06:40
SuNk8ubuntu_, go to http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Step_By_Step and try to recover the partition table using 'deeper search'. It worked for me.06:41
SuNk8ubuntu_, be sure to back up important data first...06:41

abhi_navMogga, clear what you want to do06:44
SuNk8ubuntu_,  do u need the whole partition? or some data from it?06:44
SuNk8ubuntu_, u can recover some data from that partition without messing anything up...06:44
Moggaabhi_nav: i tried to setup bonding using http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9517694&postcount=17 and now it's frozen on startup06:45
Loshkifme: ok, if it's anything like a regular install, there'll be an option 'manual partitioning' where you get to select which filesystems to use...06:45
fmeLoshki yea that's what im doing06:45

abhi_navSuNk8, **you copied**06:47
SuNk8ubuntu_, when u use testdisk, use p to list files and copy them to another portion on the harddisk, at least u'll get some data back...06:47
LoshkiMogga: how about: boot the live cd and then mount and edit /etc/network/interfaces ?06:47
fmethanks for the help, i think i can reinstall without overwriting everything06:47

AlazairClonezilla, based on DRBL, Partclone and udpcast, allows you to do bare metal backup and recovery. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (server edition). Clonezilla live is suitable for single machine backup and restore. While Clonezilla SE is for massive deployment, it can clone many (40 plus!) computers simultaneously. Clonezilla saves and restores only used blocks in the harddisk. This increases the07:15
Alazairclone efficiency. At the NCHC's Classroom C, Clonezilla SE was used to clone 41 computers simultaneously. It took only about 10 minutes to clone a 5.6 GBytes system image to all 41 computers via multicasting!07:15

pookycan anyone recommend a good task management system for ubuntu? I tried tasque, but it seems to crash often.07:20
macoVin73: those are emulators for oss07:20
macoVin73: for old programs that dont speak alsa07:20
MaRk-IGonardFreeman: then you should have xubuntu , unless you unstalled "ubuntu-desktop"07:20
Joshmuffinanyone pro with dual monitors with an ati card in ubuntu10.0407:20
rollmanno i used movl $12, %eax07:20
Vin73maco: what is the command output that would inform me that alsa is available?07:20
Vin73maco: I don't see any output text that says alsa07:20
Loshkidontput: are you running from the live cd right now?07:20
chantijonc: no. you enter your user password, but you have to give root password07:21
rollmanthat's system call to chdir07:21
GonardFreemanMaRk-I, i have new qustion.  at start i write gnome panel to open task bar, is there some "xubuntu-panel"?07:21
macoVin73: i have patches in the alsa that's in ubuntu's kernel...07:21
Karen_msomething is weird;  on my lan.. after a while the ubuntu will set itself up as the 'router' or something.  With ubuntu plugged into the router, everything stops functioning after a period of time, as soon as I unplug ubuntu, the network is back to normal.  Has anyone heard of this?07:21
macoVin73: snd_* modules are from the alsa-kernel tree07:22
dontputLoshki:  yes07:22
MaRk-IGonardFreeman: no idea, but you can try, dont you have graphical login?07:22
Vin73maco: ok...so if you see snd_* output, it should inform you that alsa is present, am I correct?07:22
joncchanti: ok, figured that part out-i didnt have a password set.07:23
GonardFreemanMaRk-I, nope( long time ago i've exit from system and it disapears)07:23
macoVin73: believe so07:23
chantijonc: no way, you must give root password at the time of OS installation07:23
macoVin73: cat /proc/asound/version07:24
macoVin73: thatll tell you the alsa version07:24
Loshkidontput: from the live cd, it's ok to run: sudo fsck -p /dev/hda107:24
GonardFreemanabhi_nav, do u now is there some "xubuntu-panel", like gnome-panel?07:24
joncchanti: apparently it had only set the user password. i had to run "sudo passwd" and set root password. *shrug*07:25
chantijonc: No prob07:25
abhi_navGonardFreeman, better to ask in #xubuntu. I dont know much about xfce. never used it.07:25
Alazairhey i have a weird problem i cant unmount my 750gig data drive im trying to repartition it to ext407:25
Vin73maco: ok thanks a lot, the reason I asked was I need to install zoiper softphone on my system...and the softphone comes in both oss and alsa variants...so I will go ahead and install the alsa variant...thanks again07:25
Loshkirollman: chdir() runs in a child process created by the shell. The parent process (the shell) is unaffected by the chdir that happens in its child. Does that make sense?07:25
Alazairfstab has it auto mount but it wont let me unmount it even with gksu07:26
joncchanti: i tried wvdial again but under root - still the same07:26
* GonardFreeman cat /dev/ass > /dev/head)))07:26
rollmani can still list everything in directory but it's all white and program still runs and i can run it again and it takes dir further out and each time i run the program i have to exit each time for every run07:26
ubuntu_i recovered some files by testdisk but i dont know where they gone?07:26
indusAlazair, what message u get07:26

Morten_indus, but how do I get to server two using scp?07:27
Morten_that is my problem07:27
holocenerollman, whatis purpose of program?07:27
MaRk-IGonardFreeman: I agree you should try #xubuntu I'm not familiar either, but gdm gives you a choice of what desktop environment you want to use if you have more than 1 installed07:27
dontputLoshki:  http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/B72w0dng07:28
GonardFreemanMaRk-I, what is this GDM?)07:28
rollmanit was originally used to try run an example program but ELF wasn't found so i switched it to system call chdir07:28
indusMorten_, for example to copy to the remote system scp -p #portnumber  filename yourname@Remote host : directory name07:28
Loshkidontput: that's very bad. Try: sudo fsck -b 8193 /dev/hda107:28
hellosirum... sorry if this is a stupid question, but i got disconnected from an ssh session when i had stopped the ssh daemon - is there a way to get back in?07:28
indusMorten_, just follow this one http://www.hypexr.org/linux_scp_help.php07:28
MaRk-IGonardFreeman: the initial login window, graphical desktop login manager07:29
holocenerollman, so your program just does a chdir from assembly?07:29
rollmanyes07:29
indus!scp07:29
holoceneThen the answer about child process is correct.07:29
ubottuSCP is a secure way of copying files across networks using !SSH. Usage: scp filename user@host:filename - WinSCP is a client for Windows, available at http://winscp.net/07:29

holocenemaco, you didn't mean 10.04, right?07:38
karma_policeis there a daily build site to dl from? or a checkpoint date to wait on? the reason i am asking i use pendrive linux with persistence.. whenever i run an update that involes a ner kernal image it renders the flash drive useless and i have to start all over.. i'm a bit of a noob so i may be doing something wrong.07:38

macojagosix: youll have to test out ubuntu's livecd to see its hardware support07:41
s3r3n1t7hellosir, i'm afraid that, unless you have setup another means of remote access, there is no such way.07:41
macojagosix: ubuntu's all ive run on hardware in recent years07:41
jagosixThe main problem I have with ubuntu is the video setup and configuration.07:41
s3r3n1t7maco, it appears it hasn't.07:41

hellosirs3r3n1t7: crap. thanks07:41

jagosixhold a min07:42
aristojagosix, linux drivers are the only reason why i choose nvidia07:43
chantijonc: after update " sudo apt-get upgrade" command you have to type. It takes some time, depends on you net speed07:43

jagosixthe gforce 61xx series07:44
aristoindus, had07:44
chantijonc: that means network continuously failure there07:44
indusaristo, well have you heard of ATI open source drivers?07:44
aristoindus, yes, tried and didn't like it07:45
aristoindus, video tearing drives me mad07:45
indusaristo, have you seen its performance today ? or of the new catalyst 10.6 driver07:45
chantijonc: Type this command immediately "sudo apt-get update"07:45
aristoindus, recently no07:46
chantijonc: then type "apt_get dist-upgrade"07:46
indusaristo, for those who prefer an open driver, ATI Is miles ahead of anyone07:46
Loshkidontput: if you don't mind about the data, just reinstall from the livecd. When it asks, tell it to ignore any existing distros. Choose ext3 as filesystem type, and this time, make /home on a separate partition so if you have to reinstall again, you can keep your data...07:46
Voldenetjagosix, did you try official nvidia drivers?07:46
aristoindus, nouveau drivers are good07:46
indusaristo, and with the new 10.6 catalyst, the difference from older one is significant07:46
cggauravThis is a simple query , though I am unable to find the solution online. If I want to run a C++ program I do ./helloworld from the current directory. How would I do it from lets say home/ ?07:46
jagosixyep..sure did.07:46

indusaristo, they aint as good as the ati ones yet but they will be\07:47
Voldenetcggaurav, what do you mean?07:47

chantijonc: drivers are not installed into your sys. that is the main problem. you have to upgrade your system07:47
Voldenetcd to your home07:47
aristoindus, have to check catalyst 10.607:47
Voldenetand enter full path to program07:47
aristomaybe if i buy a nice 585007:47
indusaristo, yes its actually awesome relatively speaking07:47
Voldenetlike: /home/myprogs/helloworld07:47
cggauravVoldenet : Lets say the program sits in home/a/b/c/helloworld.cpp07:47
indusaristo, they fixed the maximise minimise bug07:47
prince_jammyscggaurav: the './' is just a path that simply means 'in the current dir'. if you are elsewhere, you can type the path to the file.07:48
cggauravVoldenet: How would I see the output without cd from home instead of c07:48
cggaurav?07:48

MaRk-Ijonc: right now is the laptop connected wired or trying wireless?07:56
soreauindus: Right.. so you want your decorations to adhere to the windows when wobbling?07:56
indussoreau, for example, on ubuntuforums website, when i keep mouse over the thread, it provides summary in a box, but i had it all grey box07:56
joncmark-I: the laptop is connected wired07:56

indussoreau, no no i use ATI proprietary driver08:04
MaRk-Ijonc: but there are NICs detected and have an IP ???08:04
MaRk-Iwith the ifconfig command I mean08:04
cggauravVoldenet: http://paste.ubuntu.com/460993/08:04
soreauindus: Then you would use amdcccle08:04
joncmark-i: its showing loopback08:04
cggauravVoldenet: Excuse me for the delay.08:04
MaRk-Ithat's it? no eth0, eth1, wlan0?08:05
indussoreau, oh, so i need to use it from that ? no control from compiz itself ?08:05
soreauindus: It should have all the AA settings you want. But, IMHO, the open radeon driver is better overall08:05
joncmark-i: it shows both wired and wireless adpaters when i use lspci. but for ifconfig, nothing.08:05
soreauindus: No, AA is all in the driver08:05
soreauindus: Compiz has no control over the drivers capabiliies08:05
soreaucapabilities*08:05
indussoreau, it wont run games :) and even though i find the open source drivers till now great , 10.6 has changed my opinion08:05
joncmark-i: also when i click on hardware drivers, nothing shows up - completely blank.08:05
soreauindus: What wont run games?08:06
indussoreau, quake 4 wont run with open drivers08:06
MaRk-Ijonc: how did you install?08:06
soreauindus: In that case, you definitely need to ask in #radeon to get a better answer08:06
joncmark-i: via CD08:06
MaRk-Ijonc: try using the livecd mode, if it works then it might be a bad install08:07
indussoreau, i dont care about my drivers being open source :) but yes i asked in #radeon , just google for indus and radeon and it s first result from irc logs08:07
soreauindus: AFAIK, Q4 should run with open drivers, if not classic, then gallium08:07
joncmark-i: ok, i'll give that a try08:07
indussoreau, its not about the driver, its about bits in quake 4 whihc are proprietary and cannot be run by it , s3tc texture compression08:08
danjacHi, I've just done an upgrade on my Xubuntu install (Acer Aspire One netbook). Was working perfectly before. Now CouchDB immediately starts using up all the memory on start, and I have to kill it. Is there any good reason to keep CouchDB on my machine ?08:08
MaRk-Ijonc: good luck08:08

indussoreau, i read about an external library called08:10
soreau(while I find the link)08:10
danjacbut will try that channel, thanks08:10
indussoreau, i know but its not proper, i asked in #radeon08:10
soreauindus: Indeed, but have you tried it to see if it helps yet?08:11
indussoreau, yes i compiled it installed it etc, but it didnt run , but i think that was probably my mistake , i didnt do it right probably08:11
cggauravVoldenet: I figured it out.;)08:11
indussoreau, ah no wait, i later installed a gui tool also :) damn easy08:12
Voldenetcggaurav, no problem ;P08:12
indussoreau, but i just couldnt run q408:12

indussoreau, yes package called DRICONF08:14

indus!info driconf08:14
ubottudriconf (source: driconf): DRI configuration applet. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.9.1-2ubuntu1 (lucid), package size 95 kB, installed size 412 kB08:14
soreauindus: You shouldn't need to mess with driconf since the open driver is smart enough at guessing what you need already as defaults08:15
indussoreau, well , smart i dont know, but back a few months ago when karmic was in alpha, i was stuck with ATI card adn no q4 so tried all things08:15
indussoreau, because fglrx wont support new x server 1.7 yet08:16
indusor xorg 1.7 whatever08:16
soreauindus: fglrx sucks08:16
indussoreau, its good enough for me08:16
soreauindus: Which card sis you say you have?08:16
soreaudid*08:16
indussoreau, ATI 485008:16
soreauindus: Oh yes, driconf wont work with fglrx, you want amdcccle08:16
indussoreau, for me open source driver sucks, it cant  play nothing08:16
zoddanjust a long shot, anyone knows anything about ciso products? :P08:17

indussoreau, they are smooth for regular use and compiz but slow gaming08:17
Voldenetciso?08:17
zoddancisco :P08:17
indussoreau, dont know if gaming is good today on them, but i hear it s not a priority08:17
Voldenetwhat products?08:17
soreauindus: Yes but it is getting better all the time. hopefully, r600g will be a lot better than what it is now08:18
indussoreau, anyways, i think all graphics drivers suck on all platforms08:18
zoddanVoldenet: well i got a cisco asa 5510 but i dont know what i can do with it :P08:18
soreauindus: By this time next year, I mean (for r600g)08:18

soreauindus: Yes, like I said all drivers have their strong points and weaknesses08:18
indussoreau, i liked the older days when one driver was good enough for many things08:19

indussoreau, i want s3tc support08:20
indussoreau, good one08:20
indussoreau, so i use fglrx08:20
soreauindus: First thing I'd recommend is removing the fglrx driver so the open radeon driver can work08:20
Vin73hi can anyone tell me how to install libwxgtk on lucid?08:20
indussoreau, in #radeon they said, even if s3tc works, all textures will be broken08:21

indussoreau, i play only 2 games ,q4 on linux, and bad company 2 windows08:21

indussoreau, i set up a server too a few weeks back , come and play :)08:21
soreauindus: Well I give up. I would recommend giving the radeon drier another go by removing fglrx and installing a newer kernel (2.6.34 from ppa) and newer userspace components (from xorg-edgers ppa repo)08:22
indussoreau, i will install maverick alpha soon, so open driver i  will check there08:22

indussoreau, but are you saying, the newer driver will run my game ?08:23
indusyou seem persistent08:23
indussoreau, iam happy with general performance of open driver even now08:23
indussoreau, its much smoother i know08:24

soreauindus: No, I am not saying the open driver will run any game, I'm saying if you cannot run something with the radeon driver, file a bug report on fdo and present it in an inviting manner to the radeon devs and you likely will get good support08:25
indussoreau, ok thanks for your suggestions, i will keep you in the loop08:25

hasenji remember there was a dpkg-reconfigure console-something08:27
nbkrrambo3, Just copy /etc/skel to whatever the homedir of the user is.08:27
soreauindus: It's a component in the Blur Windows plugin in ccsm. On r6-7xx, I don't expect it to work quite yet08:27
indussoreau, i try using it, but not sure what it did,08:28
rambo3nbkr, so:  mkdir /home/newuser && cp -r /etc/skel /home/newuser ?08:28

soreauindus: Possibly at the expense of speed08:29
indussoreau, i think your r 350 is nt supported by fglrx08:29
elrichey,guys can somebody help me with making my remote in lucid?08:29
indussoreau, how did you get the devs to fix it?08:29
indussoreau, that blur thing08:29
nbkrhoare, did you tell grub which image to use?08:29
soreauindus: You are correct. rv350 is not supported. All r1xx-r5xx is no longer supported by fglrx08:30
MaRk-Ielric: making what remote?08:30
hoarenbkr: nope. but it generates a initramfs file which is about 5mb.08:30
soreauindus: I got the devs to fix it by filing a bug and being there when they asked me to test patches against mesa08:30
indussoreau, ah hmm08:30

indussoreau, need more volunteers08:33
bazhangindus, soreau please take chat to #ubuntu-offtopic08:33
soreauindus: If you have a definite bug that you know is a radeon driver bug, you can file a detailed report on fdo (which means bugs.freedesktop.org) and talk to the developers in #radeon and #dri-devel08:33
soreaubazhang: This is not OT.08:34
nbkrhoare, This file has to go to /boot and you have to modify the grub config, so that the boot loader uses the new init script.08:34
bazhangsoreau, chatting about how many bugs you file certainly is08:34
soreauIt has directly to do with the fact that the radeon drivers are being heavily developed and ubuntu ships releases, not live builds08:34

nbkrhoare, No, that doesn't matter. It's only important to put the resulting file in the appropriate folder i.e. /boot. Afterwards you have to reconfigure grub2 to use the new file. Have look here to see how grub2 can be configured. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub208:38

kreybazhang: I'm afraid I can't do that: 1. I don't use gnome, 2. X is kinda broken at the moment :(09:19
bazhangkrey, using what then?09:19
MaRk-Imikubuntu: just to see what's in there without editing:  gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf09:20
kreybazhang: I use compiz, but it dies with the nouveau drivers (which I'm using right now)09:20
kreybazhang: isn't  "system -->administration-->hardware drivers" jockey-gtk?09:21
bazhangkrey, iirc installing modaliases should help out here (in getting jockey to recognize more cards)09:22
MaRk-Imikubuntu: check if you see a line similar to this:  options snd-hda-intel model=auto OR options snd-hda-intel model=acer09:23

iksikrww, i need to make local mirror for all packages09:25
bazhangiksik, what do you mean by places? is this hdd storage size? something other?09:25
iksiki've got about 8 desktops with ubuntu - there is no need to download everything 8 times, right? :-)09:25
bazhangiksik, or just aptoncd09:26

ubottuiksik: APTonCD is a tool with a graphical interface which allows you to create one or more CDs or DVDs with all of the packages you've downloaded via apt-get or aptitude, creating a removable repository that you can use on other computers - See also !offline09:26
iksikbazhang, erm... i think ie. rsync is much simplier, then burning new CD with each package update ;-)09:27
Anarchy7I am using 10.04 lucid so which package is mine ? Ubuntu/jaunty ?09:27
mikubuntuMaRk-I: ok09:27
bazhangAnarchy7, not sure what you mean by that09:28
MaRk-Imikubuntu: now type: sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf09:28
funkyweaselAnarchy7: Ubuntu 10.04 is codename "Lucid Lynx".  The previous version is 9.04 is codename Jaunty Jackalope.09:28
mikubuntuMaRk-I: k, its open09:29
Anarchy7I typed sudo sh ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run --buildandinstallpkg Ubuntu/lucid09:29
Anarchy7so it will jaunty?09:29
MaRk-Imikubuntu: at the end of the file add this:  options snd-hda-intel model=acer09:29
bazhangiksik, rsync is for data, not to synchronize installs09:29
MaRk-Isave it close and reboot.... hope that works :D09:29
kreybazhang: ok so i've installed nvidia-current-modaliases, nvidia-185-modaliases, nvidia-180-modaliases, nvidia-96-modaliases and still nothing09:29

JediMasterhey guys, I've got an odd issue (running lucid on kubuntu, but I think the issue isn't K related), just now I had to reboot 5 times before I could get into X(org), plymouth came up, even did a disk check on one boot and then the progress bar stops and nothing happens. I can't Ctrl-alt-F1 etc. however ctrl-alt-del then starts the reboot process and plymouth starts moving again10:23
JediMasterIt's been happening for quite some time now, but normally only 1 in 3 times, but just now literally 5 boots before X came up10:23
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, that sounds rather tricky. Are you sure the disk isn't corrupt?10:24
JediMasters3r3n1t7, yeah, the disk check was the first time it's happened in months10:25
nawk!UNR10:25
ubottuUbuntu Netbook Remix is a slightly altered version of Ubuntu, optimised for small screens. For more information, please see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UNR - support in #ubuntu10:25
JediMasters3r3n1t7, no issues with the disk I know of, nothing in syslog to suggest it10:25
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, in months? From what I've seen happening there are so many reboots before an automatic check is done. I would suggest letting it run (it can take up to half an hour or so) and check for the result. And yes, it may appear to be doing nothing.10:25
JediMasterit appears that Xorg.log also doesn't get made, so looks like it's straight before X is supposed to load that it's getting stuck10:26
JediMasters3r3n1t7, it completed the disk check10:26
JediMasters3r3n1t7, then froze, that was just one of the 5 boots that froze before I had to hit ctrl-alt-del10:26
JediMasterit wasn't doing a disk check at the time it froze10:27
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, it did? Hmm .... Does the freeze happen before or after reboot? And can you ssh your way in? (unless you have no other pc to check with)10:27
JediMasterI power on the machine, it looks like it's about to get from plymouth into X and freezes indefinately until I hit ctrl-alt-del10:27

JediMasters3r3n1t7, it completed just now without an issue (got to 100%)10:31
JediMasters3r3n1t7, and every other time it's not mentioned doing a disk check10:31
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, it's not the fsck itself, it's the combination of plymouth (whatever that is) and mountall, while doing an fsck10:31
JediMasters3r3n1t7, plymouth is the program that display the new boot logo10:32

oCean_josh__: sudo crontab -e (will start with warning like no crontab for root, creating one)10:35
josh__thanks10:35
TravisMHi, I am trying to install Ubuntu -- and this time I want to dual boot (I have been Ubuntu only for the past 3+ years), however, I just got a new computer and since I dont HATE Windows 7 (just dislike it), I think I would like to keep it10:36
s3r3n1t7nawk, removing splash removes the logo and you will see some information. Removing quiet will also show any other output messages. Removing these 2 shows a lot of information going on while booting.10:36
JediMasters3r3n1t7, well plymouth is running when the machine boots and it's happening as the machine boots, doesn't confirm it's an issue with it10:36
JediMasters3r3n1t7, doesn't exclude it either10:36
soreauTravisM: So install 7 and ubuntu. done.10:36
TravisMAll the dual boot guides are long, and complicated looking... can I just use the installer click "manual" and then shrink the huge partition down to half size and then create the 2 partions I need for Ubuntu?10:36
atrkl_where can I configure mysql to listen in my private ip instead of 127.0.0.110:37
soreauTravisM: Yes, you can10:37
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, So i want to exclude it from being an issue by asking you to boot without the splash and quiet. Would it harm to try? And if it doesn't solve it, we'll at least have excluded this possibility.10:37
TravisMsoreau: thanks10:37
JediMasters3r3n1t7, yeah have changed the grub.cfg (feels odd somehow not being menu.lst anymore)10:37
JediMasteradded a different boot option without splash and quiet10:37
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, you can do a less permanent solution by doing it at boot time10:37
josh__if i run a command in sudo cron, do I have to specify sudo in the command or is it assumed?10:38
s3r3n1t7josh__, the cron tab you are editing will be the user who will be running the command. thus, editing the root's crontab runs the command as root10:38
oCean_josh__: a cron for root will be created, running all commands as root10:38
JediMasters3r3n1t7, as you can see I'm booted in at the moment (on the machine in question), so I'll try powering it off and rebooting10:38
josh__thanks10:38
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, I will be here. Let me know how it turns out.10:38

toolbearhi.  i'm trying to create a simple chroot environment.  i put a statically-linked copy of dash in there, and bind-mounted the /dev directory.  i can chroot into the environment just fine, but i can't execute any other programs (despite the fact that PATH is set and contains the appropriate directories).  can anybody provide some insight?10:53
MaRk-II didnt flood anyways keep going10:54
JediMasterthat's a boot, and it's now shutting down that's the problem anyhow10:54
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, well ecryptfs takes a lot more read/writes, thus causes somewhat a delay. If the delay is long enough eventually that the kernel thinks its blocked it's goin to cause an issue.10:55
JediMasters3r3n1t7, I can see two defunct processes: [python] <defunct>, both running as my own user rather than root10:55
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, which are probably caused by the errors in your dmesg. Can you kill the parent processes?10:57
JediMasters3r3n1t7, I think I shouldn't be killing PPID 1 =D10:57
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, oh ... no ... that'd be bad10:58
JediMasteras one has a PPID of 1, that doesn't seem right for a python script10:58
JediMasteranyhow, the second one has the PPID of the first one10:58
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, if it's called from init, then no that happens10:58
JediMasterso killing them both10:58
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, kill the first one?10:58
JediMasters3r3n1t7, yeah but it's run as my user10:59
JediMasters3r3n1t7, not as root10:59
JediMasters3r3n1t7, a straight kill doesn't work, trying a -910:59
JediMasters3r3n1t7, likewise, -9 doesn't kill it10:59

Tricksknoppies, yeah that's what I'm worries about... well to be fair it's a fresh install so it wouldn't be too bad it's a centos box though. I have gparted on a live cd so i'll have to do it that way11:45
Gryllidaknoppies, when I save that file locally and email it, windows user is able to open it.11:46
kudakzguys, when i make my screen resolution higher than 1024x768 it doesnt stretch to my screen and i need to use the mouse to get to the corners, any idea how to make it stretch ??11:46
knoppiesGryllida, I find it difficult to determine if you are looking at the file from windows or ubuntu, or if you created the file from windows/ubuntu. Im not actually sure how to fix cross platform permission problems. But my first step at troublshooting would be ubuntu forums and google. Not sure how to search for this kind of issue.11:46
knoppiesTricks, never used centos before. I would backup anything important/not replaceable. Good luck.11:47

Gryllidaknoppies: 1) I make the file in gEdit on Ubuntu 2.1) save it to local location and copy to the shared one OR save to the shared one directly - windows user gets 'access denied' 2.2) save it locally and email - windows user can open it successfully11:48

knoppiesTricks, that was quick. I wish you could do mine as well. I can never get a windows machine to access my samba shares. Permission issues most of the time. Im glad to hear your problem is solved.11:50
masterkorpany idea ?11:50
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, nothing wrong whatsoever. You said you think it's related to xorg, can you check their log file?11:51
JediMasters3r3n1t7, Xorg.0.log: xf86OpenConsole: VT_WAITACTIVE failed: Interrupted system call11:51
JediMasters3r3n1t7, that's what's killing X11:51
tux_hallo zusammen11:52
Tricksknoppies, yeah well the problem that took me 3 days to resolve was SELinux turn that bad boy off and windows xp could connect11:52
kudakzhow come when i make resolution higher than 1024x768 it wont stick to screen boundries and make me use mouse to scroll to corners??11:52
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, something like this? https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=32350111:52
JediMasters3r3n1t7, btw that was a fatal server error11:52
chrispinHello there11:53

knoppiesthanks Tricks I will have a look into that.11:53
Lama_Chok@kudakz maybe you should change screen settings using monitor controls11:53
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, i suspected as much reading from this bug report11:53
JediMasters3r3n1t7, seems identical to my issue11:53
Tricksknoppies, no worries mate11:53
JediMastercould be kdm related then?11:53
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, it _might_ be, yes ... at least, these guys use kdm11:54
Gryllida...11:54
Gryllida?11:54
kudakzLama_Chok: my monitor doesnt have any options to change that11:54
JediMasters3r3n1t7, well this is kubuntu, didn't think it'd be the K causing the issue, but I guess it is =/11:54
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, it might, yes11:54
masterkorpi have two monitors, how can i set the full screen apps to display only on one monitor ?11:54
Lama_Chok@kudakz; i believe your monitor is not an LCD one11:55
JediMasters3r3n1t7, reboot, hope and file a bug report?11:55
kudakzLama_Chok: it is11:55
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, you can switch to gnome by installing ubuntu-desktop, which should default it to gnome automagically, or that11:55
chrispinI'm trying to configure object policy on ebox and I'm getting bad hour of the day value error. Could anyone out there be know the time format/value?11:55
Lama_Choktry to resize the screen settings using the buttons provided on the monitor11:56
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, apparently they think gdm is to bloated and slow compared to kdm to cause issues11:56
JediMasters3r3n1t7, no, frankly I'd rather live with rebooting 5 times in the morning than switch back to gnome =D11:56
kudakzLama_Chok: its not that it doesnt fit the screen, it goes beyond the boundries11:56
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, you know you can use kde from gdm right?11:56
slow-motionhi11:56
JediMasters3r3n1t7, oh thought you meant run gnome, not gdm =D11:57
masterkorpi have two monitor, how can i set the fullscreen apps to display only on one monitor ?11:58
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, gnome and kde come after kdm/gdm. Reading back my wording was wrong. What i wanted to suggest was try out gdm instead of kdm11:58
Lama_Chok@kudakz; mostly this happens when correct display drivers are not installed11:58
chrispinHi guys, anyone with ebox configuration experience?11:58
JediMasters3r3n1t7, yeah that I can handle =)11:59
zykes-question, if one accidently rm's /dev12:00
zykes-smarted way to regenerate ?12:00

masterkorpi have two monitor, how can i set the fullscreen apps to display only on one monitor ?12:00
zykes-s3r3n1t7: thing is that /boot12:00
zykes-is missing...12:00
s3r3n1t7zykes-, so you didn't just rm /dev?12:01
=== Guest89249 is now known as robertf
zykes-correct..12:01
Lama_Chok@mastercorp : use different work space12:01
s3r3n1t7zykes-, yikes ...12:01
zykes-no kidding12:01
s3r3n1t7zykes-, rough thought and solution ... built a vm with vm-builder, copy that boot and pray that it works12:02
masterkorpi have two monitor, how can i set the fullscreen apps to display only on one monitor ?12:02
s3r3n1t7masterkorp, in the settings for your display set it to use seperate X sessions.12:03
JediMasters3r3n1t7, first boot into gdm has gone fine, I guess it's a kdm issue12:03
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, mind checking half a dozen times to be sure?12:03
JediMasters3r3n1t7, obviously nothing to do with the nfs issue earlier though12:04
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, which surprises me (but is obviously a good thing)12:04
masterkorps3r3n1t7, but then i have two sessions, i can move windows form one monitor to another12:04
chrispinGryllida, I'm getting Bad hour of the day value error when trying to configure http object policy. could you be knowing the right/correct value/time format?12:05
JediMasters3r3n1t7, err, weird, I can't shutdown from KDE now, can only log out to GDM12:05
s3r3n1t7masterkorp, it's a difficult situation (and quite different from windows) ...12:05
masterkorpyes, ai have searcher a lot12:06
masterkorpa no "clean" solution12:06
JediMasters3r3n1t7, ..... ARGGHHH12:06
JediMasters3r3n1t7, stuck shutting down again,12:06
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, ...12:06
JediMasters3r3n1t7, /bin/sh /etc/rc0.d/S31umountnfs.sh stop is running and unmount -l -f again12:06
JediMasterlooks like two bug reports to fill in12:07
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, do you happen to have a log somewhere? And yes, good idea12:07
Gryllidachrispin: possibly try #ebox12:07
symtab_hello12:08
symtab_how can i change the boot order in ubuntu 10.4 (i want to boot windows xp by default)12:08
symtab_i used to know how to do this with old grub12:08
symtab_but now i have no idea12:08
JediMasters3r3n1t7, yeah keeping track of the errors: [  360.850030] INFO: task pulseaudio:2183 blocked for more than 120 seconds.12:09
JediMasters3r3n1t7, same blocked errors12:09
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, somehow i'm still thinking this is related to your ecryptfs setup12:10
coz_symtab_,    not sure off hand but how about this   http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/grub-2.html12:10
JediMasters3r3n1t7, how does that stop nfs unmounting though?12:10
coz_symtab_,  or here   http://kubuntuforums.net/forums/index.php?topic=3107328.012:10
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, not specifically about nfs, but about the blocked processes12:10
JediMasterany way to remove the encrypted fs from the home dir?12:11
JediMasterwhile keeping the files!12:11
MaRk-IGryllida: are you sharing that folder with samba?12:11
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, create a new partition, copy all files over, mount over your old home dir?12:11
coz_symtab_,  if those done help you can go to the #grub channel :)12:12
JediMasters3r3n1t7, /home is mounted on the root partition (just one partition + swap)12:12
JediMasters3r3n1t7, not really mounted, it's in the root partition12:12
TahakkiHey guys, does anyone know which channel I should join to ask for testers for an application?12:12
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, the only way to "remove" ecryptfs from it is to copy it to a new fs on a seperate partition12:13
coz_Tahakki,  which appliation?12:13
coz_application12:13
JediMasters3r3n1t7, why a seperate fs?12:13
coz_Tahakki,   you could try ##linux...or if you want it tested on ubuntu either post it on theforum  or go to #ubuntu-offtopic?12:13
TahakkiIt's one I wrote in Python.12:13
coz_Tahakki,  ah ok12:13
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, because you want your home dir to have another FS then what you currently have, that is what you asked wasn't it?12:14

Dr_Willisseems that was designed to 'fix' a lot of the driver breakage of X issues ive been seeing the last few weeks12:29
MaRk-Ialexi5: rhythmbox is already installed by default (I think) I meant the radio stations12:29

Dr_Willisohir:  because its handy if you got a terminal open perhaps?13:20
bobsomebodyairtonix, yeah, i used run as to check if admin was the issue13:20
airtonixbobsomebody, then turn it off.13:20
Dr_Willisohir:  or if you want to do a 'some other command' and drag/drop it.13:21

airtonixbobsomebody, i assume you are using windows vista or 7 ?13:21
bobsomebodyxp, to lazy to move to 7 just yet13:22
ohirDr_Willis: anyway 'how to open terminal here' is enough frequent to do ubottu factoid I think13:22
Dr_Willisohir:  spend some time just trying drag/dropping everything in gnome to whever it makes sence , or not so much sence. :) gnome has some DnD features taht are easy to overlook13:22
bobsomebodyairtonix, im gonna hold really still and let the screen saver kick in using run as non admin to see if that helps13:23
ohirDr_Willis: I am terminal dino, no need for wearing my joints with mouse :)13:23
airtonixbobsomebody, win7 has native virtual desktop support (just no interface for creating more workspaces like linux does) so when you make synergy run at startup it makes it a 'service' thus causing it to run in the admins userspace and not yours hence not on your screen13:23
bobsomebodyairtonix, same results13:24
airtonixbobsomebody, did you tell it to not run on startup...13:25
bobsomebodyinteresting, i never knew that about win7, i wonder if they made any powertoys for it, i know on xp you can get one for multiple desktop workspaces but things go south fast13:25

Someone help me and explain how to reinstall this or how to find the same functions ?14:02

bazhangarunkumar413 you want to add a schematic? http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/lucid/man1/gschem.1.html14:04
bazhangah he quit14:04
bobsomebodyonly if it gets the screen saver sync from synergy will it do that with the screen14:04
bazhangarunkumar413 you want to add a schematic? http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/lucid/man1/gschem.1.html14:04
airtonixbobsomebody, im not sure what you mean by that to be honest ? synergy communicates with screensavers ?14:05
bobsomebodywell remember how i had the screen savers synced with synergy?14:05
arunkumar413bazhang: no14:05
bobsomebodyon that event, (initialized by the windows host computer's screen saver kicking in) it will give me that power save mode on the linux screen14:06
airtonixbobsomebody, not really. does this problem happen regardless of the screensaver you choose ?14:06
lg188is there a kind of paicho in the games ?14:06
Roy_<abhi_nav : there is not. there are "system, process, resources and file system". in the option, there is not something to enable it. 8-(14:06
bobsomebodyyou know i didnt check that... let me try it, brb14:06
bazhangarunkumar413, then to add what ever it is you wish ( a folder one directory up apparently) you'd need to use sudo14:06
ja660k_does anyone know what folder firefox plugins are in?14:07
abhi_navRoy_, oh yah my mistake14:07
Roy_<abhi_nav no prob 8-)14:07
arandja660k_: ~/.mozilla/plugins/  but if you mean addons it's in ~/.mozilla/firefox/profilename/extensions I think14:08
abhi_navRoy_ are you in admin account? if not then crosscheck it from there because i am now in stadard account. so i can see14:08
Roy_I'm admin , I running on test notebook...14:09
JediMasters3r3n1t7, no problems with any reboots or shutdowns since installing gdm and removing ecryptfs14:09
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, good to hear :-)14:09

JediMasters3r3n1t7, that and I just removed 3 years of dust from the water cooling's tripple fan radiator, and there was a lot of dust!14:10
airtonixbobsomebody, ahh i never noticed that config option : screenSaverSync = {true|false}14:10
gotenksssubuntu the best14:11
gotenksssi love  ubuntu14:11
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, i doubt that has an effect on the software14:11
trojan_spikeubuntu love you ;)14:11
JediMasters3r3n1t7, well it's 30C+ in the room and I figured it can't help if it's overheating =)14:11
bobsomebodyairtonix, well this time it did absolutely nothing14:11
s3r3n1t7JediMaster, true14:12
bobsomebodyusing a different screen saver14:12
airtonixbobsomebody, that implies it requires the same screensaver software on both machines ? seems a bit retarded to me14:12
Phong_good morning everyone in the house.14:13
Phong_how are you all doing today?14:13

bobsomebodyairtonix, yeah i had the glmatrix going on linux with xp running something retarded like starfeild i think14:15
bobsomebodybut it looked tacky so i had them set to power save14:16
airtonixbobsomebody, just a blank screen instead then ?14:16
tuliohmhi, anybody knows where is the Services Manager on ubuntu 10.04?14:16
GryllidaServices Manager?14:17
Gryllidawhat do you expect it to do?14:17
bobsomebodyairtonix, at first yes, but then i adjusted the power managment stuff on all 3 to power down the screens before the blank screens kicked in14:17
Gryllidasystem - administration - startup14:17
tuliohmGryllida, apache, mysql, etc...14:17
airtonixGryllida, tuliohm means the gui aspect of $ sudo service blah blah stop14:17

airtonixtuliohm, you could however make one yourself with python and pygtk14:18

bobsomebodyairtonix, well it seems that ive disabled the power save mode but i cant seem to get it to do anything now14:23
torarneQ: After a fresh install of 10.04 the boot hangs with a blinking cursor, and booting in rescue mode shows a suspicious "Out of memory" for ureadahead, and ends up halting after the msg "Attached SCSI removable disk". Any idea what could cause this?14:24
airtonixtuliohm, sudo apt-get install bum14:24
airtonixbobsomebody, when you say "cant seem to get it to do anything now", does this mean that not even the mouse of keyboard attached to the linux box cause any response ?14:25
bobsomebodythere is no mouse or keyboard attached to the linux box14:25
bobsomebodywhen i say do anything i mean it wont even do the power save mode, it just acts like its not going idle14:26
tuliohmairtonix, I'm using it :P14:26
tuliohmbetter than the old one14:26
bobsomebodyno screen flicker, no screen saver, nothing14:26
airtonixbobsomebody, so the screen is not physically repsonding ?14:27
bobsomebodyit is, i just ment its not doing what it should14:27
bobsomebody(im talking to you on the linux box)14:27
bluebaron_anyone know why, when i try to open file with other application, set it as the default application, it goes back to toetem(avi)14:27
bluebaron_i want vlc14:27
ActionParsniptorarne: boot to root recovery mode with networking and use a wired connection (makes life easier). and get updated14:28
torarneactionparsnip: seems like i'm hitting this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ureadahead/+bug/59096314:28
ActionParsnipbluebaron_: right click the file, you can configure the default app there I believe14:28
airtonixbobsomebody, ok. so your only problem right now is that the screensaver sync is not actually syncing ?14:28
torarneactionparsnip: i just rebooted for the third time and now  i got the rescue console14:28
Dr_Willisbluebaron_:  that open with.. dosent set teh default.. its a one time thing.14:29
bobsomebodybluebaron_, system > preferences > preferred applications14:29
airtonixbobsomebody, and that previewing any of the linux screensavers does not give you a full screen preview ?14:29
bluebaron_Dr_Willis, then why is there a checkmark that says "Rember this application for \"AVI Video\" files"?14:29
bluebaron_bobsomebody, thank you14:30
bobsomebodyno preview works flawlessly and behaves just fine (no flickers, no redraw hiccups)14:30
airtonixbluebaron_, its not a checkmark its a radio box. and do not confuse the fact that it being highlighted means that you have set that entry as the default app.14:30
Dr_Willisbluebaron_:  try right clicking and set it that way then.14:30
bluebaron_airtonix, no you are wrong14:30
=== rpk is now known as RobKielty
airtonixbluebaron_, you actually have to click on the radiocircle14:30
bluebaron_airtonix, no it is a checkbox ... i am a developer .. i know the difference .. thank you for playing14:31
bobsomebodywell shit that wasnt good.... my slide out tray just fell off my desk brb 1 sec14:31
Dr_WillisI think he means the 'open with ... other application .... ' gui has a check bo.14:31
torarneactionparsnip: k, got into root + networking and did apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, hopefully that will fix it14:31
ActionParsniptorarne: hope so, updates fix quite a lot14:31
bluebaron_"anyone know why, when i try to open file with other application, set it as the default application, it goes back to toetem(avi)"14:31
torarneactionparsnip: thanks for the tip14:31
airtonixbluebaron_, default ubuntu theme has that as a radio selector not a check box.14:32
ActionParsniptorarne: do a dist-upgrade too, will get you kernel updates too :)14:32
devihi everyone, can someone help me with installing my printer?14:32
airtonixbluebaron_, infact i think that regardless of the theme it will always be a radio widget and not a tickbox14:32
bluebaron_airtonix, a radio button implies there are at least two options ... please stop talking14:32
torarneactionparsnip: ah, thanks, no used to apt-get14:32
bobsomebodyok back, holy crap that gave me a heart attack14:32
ActionParsnipdevi: what printer14:32
ActionParsniptorarne: its good to use14:32
devia brother dcp135c actionparsnip14:33
airtonixbluebaron_, no you just made a new best friend14:33

ActionParsnipdevi: brother do linux drivers, head to the brother site14:33
sweetpibluebaron_: iirc it just adds the program to the list of known apps for that file type14:34
deviActionParsnip: I tried that, but what do I do once I downloaded the driver...?14:34
ActionParsnipdevi: most times they are debs so install them like any other deb14:34
bluebaron_sweetpi, ahhh .... yes .. that makes sense14:34
bobsomebodyairtonix, i must admit im about at wits end with this stunt lol14:34
deviActionparsnip: Whats a deb?14:35
bobsomebodytime vs actual coolness factor != worth it14:35
deviActionparsnip, I'm no computer wiz...14:35
samlhey, how can I install .deb package i downloaded?14:35
samldpkg -i ?14:35
ActionParsnipdevi: ubuntu doesnt expect you to be14:35
bobsomebodyairtonix, but i thank you for your help none the less14:35
ActionParsnipsaml: sudo dpkg -i file14:35
ActionParsnipdevi: what filename have you downloaded?14:35
bluebaron_How do I set the default application for avi files?14:36
samlActionParsnip, it fails because i don't have dependencies.14:36
deviActionParsnip, I just saw I doewnloaded 2 times the rpm files.. there r some deb too, should I try that?14:36

abhi_nav!rpm | devi14:36
ubottudevi: RPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)14:36
ActionParsnipdevi: ubuntu doesn't use rpm.14:37
hahabhi how do i start memtest from the new ubuntu lucid live cd?14:37
devioohhhhh.... oops!14:37
abhi_nav!deb | devi14:37
ubottudevi: deb is the Debian package format, also used by Ubuntu. To install .deb files, simply double-click (in Ubuntu) or click (in Kubuntu) on them to start the GDebi utility.14:37
ActionParsnipdevi: run this command and it will be fine:    cd ~; wget http://solutions.brother.com/Library/sol/printer/linux/rpmfiles/lpr_debian/dcp135clpr-1.0.1-1.i386.deb; sudo dpkg -i ./dcp135clpr-1.0.1-1.i386.deb; sudo apt-get -f install; rm ./dcp135clpr-1.0.1-1.i386.deb14:37

bluebaron_airtonix, thank you for showing me how wrong you were ... you didn't read my question ... while that lets me know how to fix my issue, your telling me that i was wrong was wrong because you didn't read the question14:38

Roy_I have a problem: on ubuntu 10.04 there is not the "services" voice under "system - administration". Someone know something about that ? someone can help me ?14:38
