Nighthwkcwilu_at_work: but it won't start my mount --bind command on boot up but it will if I run /etc/rc.local on command prompt01:07
Ego_Proctorcwillu_at_work, I am also having to use open radeon video driver, my card is not supported for linux by ATI.01:07
cwillu_at_workEgo_Proctor, kde's might be hacking on xorg.conf directly (it used to);  can you copy the output of xrandr to a pastebin, and then paste the link here?01:07
Ego_Proctorcwillu_at_work, you mean xranr -q?01:09
cwillu_at_workEgo_Proctor, does the same thing01:09

Dan-902how to ftp folders using ftp cli on ubuntu server?01:10
EvilTrekwhere can I get answers to a security related question regarding the openssh-server package?01:10
Dan-902or recursive ftp01:10
cwillu_at_workEgo_Proctor, that looks right, what resolution are you trying to change to?01:10
cwillu_at_workEgo_Proctor, the monitor preferences dialogue should let you just drag one monitor around the other one, no?01:11
cwillu_at_workEgo_Proctor, will it let you flip them side-to-side?01:11
Ego_Proctorcwillu_at_work, no it won't  it gives me garbage as the output, then the 30 sec timer runs out and it restores.01:12
cwillu_at_workEgo_Proctor, so it'll let you, it just doesn't work :p01:12
cwillu_at_workrelevant information that is :)01:12
cwillu_at_workEgo_Proctor, is that when you move the monitors, or when you change resolution?01:13
Ego_Proctorcwillu_at_work, both01:13

cwillu_at_workEgo_Proctor, are you using any extra repositories/ppa for drivers?01:13
cwillu_at_workEgo_Proctor, might try disabling graphical effects (None in the appearances properties), and then moving the monitor again01:14

NightDragoni'm looking to go with a FLOSS solution here, my boss is too cheap for Kace, Spiceworks is M$ only, and my boss would have a coronory if i try to use something like BO2K...01:28

asymptote1and it's not M$ only but ok01:28
NightDragonso right now i'm using GLPI for inventory/ticket support (glpi-project.org) and ocs-ng for inventory backend... but i'm looking for something to take care of the _mangagement_ part of things01:29

gimmeabreakHey, I was wondering if anyone can answer a few questions regarding install ubuntu on a computer with Windows 7 already installed. I got about 40gb of unpartitioned space on my HDD (the one with windows installed) that I want to install ubuntu on. Is it possible to do that with the default installer?01:53

thune3vodl: sounds like your problem is elsewhere. Either you do have power-out or hard shutdowns, you check intervals are too short, or (unlikely) you have a hardware problem. Full checks should be infrequent. And running a filesystem in a potentially inconsistent state is asking for trouble later. Also, if you don't let the check finish, it WILL happen again on the next boot. I guess I'm trying to say that your problem is better addressed by 02:40

foxloverPS: I don't have my DVD media anymore... :-(02:42
Jordan_Ufoxlover: If ddrescue says that it only recovered 543 MiB of data, then you won't be able to get any more than that from the image ddrescue created.02:43
thune3vodl: well if the filesystems are set as "unclean" then they need to be checked to get back to clean. Then: depending on the filesystem, you can set the check intervals to longer intervals (tune2fs for ext2/3/4)02:43

_genuser_Roasted: sounds like your window manager craps. you using regular ubuntu?03:14
Roasted_genuser_, yes03:14
alien_jdsbluedevi can you help me with my question?03:15
shtowerhongming, are you an Ubuntu user?03:15
hongmingof course03:15
Jordan_Ualien_: That pastebin link is broken.03:15
alien_Hello I have *attempted*am  to install ubuntu on my new Sony VAIO z1290x (http://goo.gl/YYBp) I when boot up the computer. All I get is a blank screen. No shell, no flashing cursor nothing. I ran the Check out http://ubuntu.pastebin/Q72xXsx9 for the results of the boot info script.03:15
_genuser_Roasted: is it like that right now?03:15
hongmingI am03:15
alien_let me look03:15
dfeuerOK....  I just upgraded to Lucid and suddenly my window close, maximize, iconify buttons are on the left instead of the right.  How can I fix this?03:15
Roasted_genuser_, no, I just log out/back in till it works right.03:15
jdsbluedevlalien: this may be a stupid question, but have you tried any other boot-up disks for other distros?03:15
shtowerhongming: well, that's good then03:15
alien_ http://ubuntu.pastebin/Q72xXsc9 is the correct version03:16
Jordan_U!controlls | dfeuer03:16
dfeuerJordan_U, !controlls?03:16
_genuser_Roasted: if it craps out, use alt-f2 to bring up run screen, then run "metacity". see if it fixes it. if it does, then that's surely the case. your window manager dies.03:16
Jordan_U!controls | dfeuer03:16
ubottudfeuer: In Lucid, the minimize, maximize, and close buttons have been moved to the left side. For more information, please see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/light-themes/+bug/532633/comments/564 | To move them back to the right-hand side, see http://sites.google.com/site/alucidfs/how-i-do/move-buttons-to-right-side03:16
_genuser_Roasted: then you have to figure out what kills that.03:16

marubuntu sux because you can't resize wubi partition after installation.03:33
wick94_genuser_ this wt it says Package gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks is not available, but is referred to by another package.03:33
wick94This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or03:33
wick94is only available from another source03:33

jdsbluedevlmaco: I mean using the nm-applet03:38
Jordan_Umar: You are incorrect, I helped someone yesterday who asked about resizing a wubi install, because they asked nicely. Being manipulative won't get you helped, it will only irritate those that would otherwise be helping you.03:38

squigleJordan_U, that was my renderfarm03:39

ubottuPoopieMcGhee: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family friendly.04:29
thune3Topy44: There are probably several ways to do this but I would recommend installing ubuntu-desktop with: apt-get install --no-install-recommends ubuntu-desktop     you can look at "apt-cache show ubuntu-desktop" do look at dependencies and recommends. You could these lists and customize them.04:29

ubottucheckinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!04:36

usacomputertecI don't either04:47

Jordan_Uusacomputertec: You can't just mount the second iso and tell the installer to continue?04:47
usacomputertecdon't you understand04:47
usacomputertecJordan_U tried04:47
usacomputertecJordan_U I even tried reconfiguring wine to use a diffrent folder while the installer was open04:48
Vigousacomputertec: Are you using Cedega or some such thing?04:48
Out_Coldusacomputertec, no.. i kinda jumped into the problem halfway... but even as an iso... if the installer won't let go of the device, good luck..04:48
usacomputertecRight but isn't there some way of tricking it?04:48
Jordan_Uusacomputertec: Try umount -l, if that doesn't work then start over using mount instead of gmountiso.04:49

byerleyhi, I've messed up my bootloader pretty thoroughly after a couple ubuntu/windows installations on what used to be a dual-boot system. I'm a fairly experienced linux user and I've been through a couple tutorials, but none of the usual methods seems to be working.(at the moment I just get a grub command line when I boot from hard drive) Would anyone be willing to walk me through some trouble shooting methods?07:02
Jordan_Ustwobe: Seems the reason that toram wasn't working for me was that I didn't give the VM I tested in enough RAM (though it should give an error message in that case rather than booting noramlly). I can confirm that if you have 1 GB or more of RAM toram works with 10.04.07:03

CkhiKuzadyes i read it. jussi07:21
Jordan_UCkhiKuzad: You can setup GRUB2 to boot from the iso file, using the toram parameter to copy the CD into RAM (otherwise the installer will complain as you can't install to media you're booted from).07:21
CkhiKuzadJordan_U, i cant copy the CD to ram, because its 700 some megs, and i only have a 512 meg hard drive.07:22
jussiyeah, that also, or the way I linked to where you create an extra partition and boot from there.07:22
CkhiKuzadand if you say upgrade, i am going to another server.07:22
jussiCkhiKuzad: 512 meg hd? and you want to install ubuntu?07:22
Jordan_UCkhiKuzad: Then you'll need to use jussi's guide (which will work just fine).07:22
Topy44ubottu: i know that method, but i wasnt sure this was the proper way to start a basic system tool like maximus, which should be started before any programs that might open windows07:22

The 160 Gb drive now shows the geometry and label of the 1.5 TB drive and cannot be read. I have tried testdisk and have not been able to get the drive to work properly yet. Any help?08:35

erUSULpizzle: remounting replugging the disk does not help ?08:43
Jordan_Uakasha: Press any key early in the LiveCD boot and you will get a boot menu. Select your language then press F6 to change the kernel parameters (you'll have to press escape to get out of the menu of common parameters as the one you want isn't there)08:43

Dr_WillisIronChef:  You just need tolearn the ways to do it.  I have no admin issues at all with ubuntu.09:48
Jordan_Uzus: That command should have "unlocked" them all.09:48

IronChefsimple, for this particular task i need to login as root09:49
Dr_WillisBad habbits on their part. do not prove its a ubuntu 'problem'09:49
ikoniaIronChef: it can do root when you want it, and it's not hard to unlock the root account if you really feel strong about it09:49
zusJordan_U,  it didnt, BUT it unlocked the winetrickstmp and got the sh winetricks working,....09:49

darth10Dr_Willis, IronChef is mostly an admin in a lab or something. nothing unbelievable about it09:51
IronChefi'm not actually trolling, i just want to know how to enable the root account in gnome, then i'll happily go back to what i was doing09:51
erUSULpizzle: maybe a mailing list... if they use irc i do not where sorry.09:51
Dr_Willisdarth10:  ok. Not in the 'real world' then. :)09:51
ikoniaIronChef: the guys in ##linux told you09:51
ikoniaIronChef: it's also well documented09:51
ikoniaIronChef: however, you'll need to unlock the root aaccount onteh system first09:52
pizzleerUSUL, ty for all the help and time09:52
Dr_WillisGDM also prevents root from directly logging in. I recall.09:52
ikoniaDr_Willis: correct, which is why enabling root in either without the other is pointless09:52
erUSULpizzle: no problem09:53
* Dr_Willis changes his root users theme/colors to be bright red. so any apps running as root.. get a real real bright warning/colors. :)09:53
IronChefand fwiw i totally agree with locking users out of a root login, lest they run xchat as root etc, but that's not my situation, it's no lie, i do this all day for a living :-)09:54
Jordan_UIronChef: You realize that it isn't just a matter of being "carefull", Gnome was not meant to be bulletproof and running millions of lines of GUI code as root is a huge security risk.09:54
consitas I understand GDM is nobody login session, and I find how to change background, but I wabt to put screensaver when nobody is log. I put slideshow in GDM mode in same way as background but is minimized and I want to maximize09:55
IronChefJordan_U: sure, but i just need to take a system snapshot, then i'll log right out again :-)09:55
Jordan_UIronChef: Why do you need to run Gnome as root to "take a system snapshot"?09:55
ikoniaIronChef: you shouldn't be running the system if your taking a snapshot09:55
ikoniaIronChef: you should be doing that from single user mode to minimise in use and locked files09:56
* Dr_Willis wonders what system 'snapshot' even means09:56
ikonianormally an "image" of some sort of the box09:56
Jordan_UDr_Willis: That's why I put it in quotes :)09:56
* IronChef means "of my encrypted home dir"09:56
ikoniaIronChef: again - you don't need to be root for that09:57
ikoniaIronChef: you're making a poor argument for logging into a desktop environment as root09:57
Dr_Willisroot user has an encrypted home dir?09:57
ikoniaDr_Willis: I'm guessing someone else, which is why he wants to do it as s root09:57
IronChefi'm windering if anyone here actually knows the answer...09:57
IronChefwondering also09:57
ikoniaIronChef: I've told you the answer09:57
IronChef<ikonia> IronChef: however, you'll need to unlock the root aaccount onteh system first09:58
ikoniaIronChef: I wonder if you actually fully understand what you're doing logging into a desktop environment as root to backup a home directory ?09:58
* Dr_Willis isent clear on the probpelm. if you want to backup /home/* then you should be doing it from single user mode/recovery mode09:58
zusJordan_U,  what do i do then to remove the lock from them two folders? i dont know why the command didnt unlock them.09:58
IronChefoh ffs i'm going back to suse, this is childish09:58
ikoniaIronChef: yes, so you need to change gdm config to ALLOWROOT login, but you'll also need to unlock the system root account as the ubuntu root account actually has no password by default as it's locked09:58
* Dr_Willis wonders what tool in X is being used to snapshot stuff.09:59

acee12345how do i give a program permission to bind ports without invoking sudo?10:28

PALCOHi guys. I love Ubuntu. Love using it. But have a question now. Are out there any Pulseaudio tools (or any other ones) that make it possible to define a soundcard to be used to output sound from a program (media player)? Need it badly. PLS10:38

Dr_Willis_crankyadmin:  there are a few exceptions of course.10:38

gschweppHi does anyone know how gdm controls ssh login by ubuntu?10:39
Dr_Willis_PALCO:  theres a few pulse audio config tools in the repos.  I forget the names. somthing like 'pavcontrol' or similer10:39
Dr_Willis_gschwepp:  as far as i know. gdm dosent controll ssh at all.10:39

metaltuxhello. How do I share my internet connection on ubuntu?10:41
metaltuxit doesn't seem to work as a router10:41
PALCODr_Willis_, but it is possible in general, right?10:41
graczbye :)10:41
Dr_Willis_PALCO:  im not sure what you are doing. but Pulse has a lot of features that people never notice.10:41
scriptwarlockmetaltux: have you tried the network manager feature like share this computer?10:42
knxvilleHow is it I add programs (Conky) to run automatically at startup?10:42
gschweppDr_Willis_: That was my opinion since yesterday :). I set up a vncserver (by hand not with remote desktop). As long as i was logged in to my remote computer i could establish the ssh connection with my laptop. After logging out at my Remote host it didnot work. After reboot neither(because noone was logged in)10:42
Dr_Willis_knxville:  for conky ive had tomake a script (startconky.sh) that sleeps for 20 sec, then starts conky with the proper options)  and add that script to the list of auto started apps. via the startup manager tool10:42
Dr_Willis_!startup | knxville10:42
ubottuknxville: To add programs to start up when you log into your Gnome session go to System>Preferences>Sessions and use the Startup Programs tab. For more information, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddingProgramToSessionStartup - See !boot for starting non-interactive programs at boot10:42
gschweppDr_Willis_: i killed sudo gdm-stop gdm, logged off and tried to loggin via ssh and it worked.10:42
Dr_Willis_knxville:  with out the 'pause' conky often gets goofed up and runs on top of - or below the gnome desktop10:43
knxvilleDr_Willis: ahh alright10:43
Dr_Willis_gschwepp:  i can ssh into my remote box's with gdm started, or stopped. or not even installed..10:43
PALCODr_Willis_, I want Totem music to be played to Sound card A, and Rithmbox sound to go to Sound card B10:43
rebirthamarok question since the amarok channel seems to be dead: i just updated to 10.04 and now amarok will not find any music when it scans10:44
gschweppDr_Willis_: i expected that. is someone logged into remote host when you start your ssh ?10:44
Dr_Willis_PALCO:   i think thats doable.   but never really tried it thatway. I tended to reroute sound to my soundcard. Or my Bluetooth headset.10:44
Dr_Willis_gschwepp:  its a headless server. :) so no.10:44
Dr_Willis_gschwepp:  ive never heard of GDm in any way  affecting ssh logins.10:45
gschweppDr_Willis_: me neither. but i wanted to ask and then write a bug report.10:46

Dr_Willis_K1ng:  it may need a 'delay' when starting  with gnome. Ive seen some apps that i have to do a 'sleep 20' or so when auto-starting them. this lets gnome get setup. You could also set up the script to launch a terminal and the app. so you can see what its doing/error messages10:59

ubottuvikas: If you need to download Ubuntu packages using another machine or OS, check the desired packages in Synaptic and select File > Generate package download script. Alternatively, try http://apt.alturl.com/ - See also !APTonCD11:30
Dr_Willisthen copy it to the other box. you will stillneed to actually reinstall the packages. but they wont be needed tobe redownloaded11:30
Dr_Willisvikas:  so you can move/copy the .debs then use that script mentioned above and reinstall most of them. and save download time.11:31
Dr_Willisvikas:  but that cache may NOT have everything you have ever installed. It gets cleaned out every so often11:31
vikasanother dought11:32
K1ng/etc/X11/xorg.conf is no more?11:32
Dr_Willisvikas:  if you are on a home (or othe) lan,  you can set up one ubuntu box as an 'apt-cacher' to cache the packages for the rest of the lan.  That way the stuff gets downloaded once by one machine. the rest of the lan can use the cache from that box.11:32

Dr_Willisvikas:  ubuntu package manager dosent work that way. You are thinking in windows terms11:40
kimeccppiii: drop here those errors11:40
Dr_Willisvikas:  if you look at how the package manager works.. vlc basically is a .deb as is opera, and xchat. the however have dependencies that are also oteh .deb packages11:41
Dr_WillisThus you are not constantly redownloading 'support libs'  that are 'built into' the 'installer .exe' like they do in windows.11:41

tonysanI accidentally delete the schema in metacity/general while using gconf-editor, how can I recover it?11:43
Dr_Willisif theres old/new versions of the .debs or other issues.. that can be a very bad idea. best to put them in the cache. and reinstall the apps using the proper commands11:43
vikasya and it will install all softwares11:43

vikasthe batter thing will be to download the software packages in different folder and save them Dr_Willis11:45
Dr_Willisvikas:  the pacakge manager archive is the same deb's you would be 'downloading'11:45
ioDarkStar2: Possibly because your primary nickname is already in use. Most IRC clients either add a numeral or an underscore.11:45
ioDarkStar2: However, you should get a notice telling you that from your client. I am not sure Pidgin does that notice.11:46
al1asok thanks man dident help but thnx any way11:46
DarkStar2io: It did but I can't find it in use..11:46
ioDarkStar2: The server will send it, whether Pidgin chooses to show it or not is anyones guess as I don't use that client.11:46
MaRk-Ihhmmm libraries are in /usr/bin, cppiii did you install libcripto by yourself or why they show in /usr/local/zend/lib?11:46

AceKingFor the last week or so my PC (running 10.04) has been lagging real bad. It starts up fine, but once I'm at the desktop it takes forever to open programs. Any ideas besides a re-install to fix this issue?11:48
MaRk-IHallaj: were you expecting a desktop environment?11:48
vikasDr_Willis, will .net framework can be installed in ubuntu to excess softwares like wine11:48
vikaslike wind do11:49
Dr_Willisvikas:  it dosent work that way. and you would have redundant packages in the different folders.  what if prog1 and Prog2 both needed  some support library.. your way would have that support.deb in both folders11:49
cppiiiMaRk-I:  I don't know... maybe I have to reinstall the ubuntu11:49
AceKingI should say "takes forever" just say Firefox for instance.. It takes about 5 to 8 seconds to open11:49
Dr_Willisvikas:  ive heard .net stuff dosent work very well in wine.  The few apps ive used that need .net often have tweaks to let them use the mono instead11:49

MaRk-IHallaj: any errors during boot up?11:50
ioAceKing: Obvious question but did you install any software during that time that could have possibly caused it?11:50
dminusHallaj: is it a scsi or SAS array?11:50
Hallajdminus: It's SAS array11:50
AceKingio, I'm always installing stuff from the repositories, but nothing that I haven't had on before11:51
dminusyou might need to add bootdelay=30 to let the array initialize, can you see anything in /dev like sda, sdb?11:51
Hallajdminus: I even tried with double raid1, it's still refusing to work.11:51
Hallajdminus: I'd have to reinstall. I've been trying a couple of combinations for now, none seems to be working. Let me try it and let you know. Thanks.11:51
Hallajdminus: Anyway, is this because the array wasn't initialized on time for the boot?11:52

vikasi tried to install mono but did not worked how to install mono Dr_Willis11:52
dminusi have an old dell box with an adaptec card and had the same problem on lucid11:52

Dr_Willisvikas:  i tend to avoide anything using .net or mono. I thouight mono was installed by default. but that dosent mean that wine apps will use it automatically11:54
MaRk-Isangho: it means type in terminal:   locate *.tar.gz11:54
iosangho: "cd <folder>" then "ls | grep .tar.gz" or "ls | grep *.zip".11:55
sanghoio, i want do that at same time11:55

Shvondersangho: use the corntab but with your script11:56
dminusHallaj: there might be some other fix needed to force initializing the md volume though, dont do much with mdadm arrays myself :-)11:56
ioShvonder: His question has nothing to do with using crontab or a script.11:56
sanghoio,  that's result is None, because there is no *.zip in result of "grep *.tar.gz"11:56
Shvonderio: He said he wanted to find some file periodicaly11:57
Hallajdminus: Oh, there's no guarantee that the grub would load then?11:57
vikasi have and  want to use software to download books from google. it uses .net how can it be get into work in ubuntu Dr_Willis11:57
AceKingio, You're not going to believe this.. I tried searching again on Google and I found that I am not the only one having the problem! I'm not sure if it's ok to post a link in here, but it shows the fix11:57
MaRk-IAceKing: post it11:58
dminusHallaj: i've had trouble in the past with that, but that's RHEL 5, so it might not be the issue11:58
iosangho: You expected a file ending in .zip to show when using "grep *.tar.gz", obviously not. The .zip file will show when using "grep *.zip". You asked for a single command to list files ending in *.tar.gz and *.zip, which "ls | grep *.tar.gz | grep *.zip" will do.11:58
dminusHallaj: did you try exiting the shell after waiting a minute or two?11:58
MaRk-IAceKing: so firefox is the problem?11:59
killerhoundHmm still looking about that resolution problem for second monitor...11:59
Hallajdminus: sometimes exit or ctrl would boot the OS11:59
Hallajbut most of the times, doing so will just cause the machine to freeze11:59

MaRk-IAceKing: noted11:59
dminusHallaj: if you can get it booted, try just adding the rootdelay=30 (or 60 or 90) to the grub defaults11:59
dminusthat should be all you need12:00
AjitarshOk, I'll do and come back to you.12:00
Hallajdminus: just add that to the grub file and reboot, no need to initfsram or something?12:00
sanghoio, http://dpaste.org/CX9x/ it doesn't work12:01
dminusHallaj: theres a line in /etc/default/grub that sets GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX12:01

Sbiokocan you explain?12:31
Hallajdminus: that seems to be working well. Thanks :)12:31
chrism2671Dr_Willis I'm certain there's a way to do it without installing anything extra, just over an ssh -X session, or am I wrong about that?12:33

^Jay2^does fglrx shows ati's gpu temp/12:33
Dr_Willischrism2671:   the whole desktop apps would all run as seperate apps.. so you sould have windows scattered all over.  try running  gnome-panel and see.12:35
Dr_Willischrism2671:  using freenx, or vnc would keep them all int heir own 'window' and thus neater12:35

Dr_Willisive used mythtv to record from the Svideo In on my tuner card. :)12:47

io|jonathan|: You said 8245G not 82945G, by the way.13:34
Ex-Opesadminus: Yeah If this happens I will try it but I don't think this is a permanent solution and I am not sure if reloading a driver will work :)13:34
Visvanathio, I don't want information about git. I want to know how to install from it13:34
CedricAthelstoneveleno: thats right, so  if you want /usr/bin/splayd to link to /usr/lib/splayd/splayd.sh the command would be ln -s /usr/lib/splayd/splayd.sh /usr/bin/splayd13:34

TriciaHey, when I set gnome-terminal to a shortcut, it doesn't use gnome keyring. But when I click the icon in gnome-panel it works fine14:46
Triciahow do I make the shortcut have the proper env variables?14:46
shaunolvh: it can, but it doesn't mean everything will just work.  I'm not sure libraries such as winforms are complete yet14:46
lvhI don't understand why you'd use a language like Gambas when you've got languages that are much, much nicer that work flawlessly on almost all platforms?14:47
lvh(the implementations of which*, if you want to be pedantic)14:47
MaRk-ITricia: how do you make the shorcut?14:47
SlartTricia: you can set enviroment variables before the actual command, I think it works even in shortcuts..14:47
pepper_hazescriptwarlock, that command line you gave me doesn't work14:47

IdleOnepepper_haze: you are trying to reset the panels to default?14:48
Triciaalkisg: ..why wouldn't it?14:48

ubottuTo reset the gnome panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »14:48
scriptwarlockpepper_haze: rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel14:48
lvhviolinappren: unfortunately, what you just said is theory and not practice, for example all mobile .NET platforms miss System.Reflection.Emit (just one example)14:49
scriptwarlockpepper_haze: pkill gnome-panel14:49
pepper_hazestill doesn't work, scriptwarlock14:49
alkisgTricia, sipior: it never asked me for any passphrases, that's why I'm asking. Has it ever asked you?14:49
lvhviolinappren: so yes, if you could compile everything statically down to CIL everything would work, but that's not actually something that happens in the real world :)14:49
sipioralkisg: no, saving passphrases for rsa authentication, is what i meant.14:49
scriptwarlockpepper_haze: your using lucid right?14:49
philinuxpepper_haze: try disabling compiz14:50

pepper_hazescriptwarlock, I am using 10.04, and the cut and paste is barely working, I almost feel as though I have been hacked14:50
sipioralkisg: well, you run ssh from gnome-terminal, thus...14:50
scriptwarlockpepper_haze: thats impossible14:50
Triciaalkisg: what? when I connect somewhere via ssh with key, the keyring thing pops up and has me enter the passphrase for the key14:50
scriptwarlockpepper_haze: then manually type it to the terminal14:51
sipioralkisg: gnome-terminal provides the ssh-agent functionality as a matter of convenience.14:51
IdleOnepepper_haze: gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel14:51
TriciaI know it's gnome-terminal because I'm staring right at the env variables. if it doesn't use gnome-keyring it falls back to ssh-agent14:51
alkisgTricia: that's ssh, not gnome-terminal. And you see a difference there depending on how you start it?14:51
Triciaalkisg: :|14:52
pepper_hazescriptwarlock, thanks the pkill command worked, everything on my desktop works now, thanks14:52
alkisgTricia: it shouldn't matter even if you used xterm for that... it's not a gnome-terminal feature afaik.14:52
