OerTempus_Fugit, re-install gnome keyring, you need it to store wireless keys and more.00:00
qwiksilver711I am currently running a dual boot with win7 and ubuntu 10.4 on a 500g hard drive, and I have a 1TB hd i want to move ubuntu to. is it possible to remove ubuntu from this hd without doing a complete reformat of the windows partition? would it hurt anything if i just used a partition program to expand the windows partition to the full drive?\00:00
Tempus_FugitOer: which package ...seahorse???00:00
DCat--qwiksilver711, it shouldnt00:00
DCat--backup just incase tho :)00:01
jamesanelayHi, how would one completely remove sendmail from their system?00:01
Tempus_FugitOer: or just apt-get install gnome-keyring??00:01
rezzy63% installed00:01
qwiksilver711in theory couldn't i use something to image the windows partition, and then put that on the 1tb hd as a backup, and if something went wrong when i expanded the windows partition i should be able to just throw that image on the 500g hd right?00:02
OerTempus_Fugit, i'm not sure,  i think, sudo apt-get install ubuntu-keyring00:02
jamesanelayHi, how would one completely remove sendmail from their system?00:03
DCat--qwiksilver711, thats the long way00:03
Tempus_Fugitok this might help how do I create a root acct in Lucid ...chroot?00:03
qwiksilver711DCat-- whats the short way?00:03
Chr1831How come putting @hourly /path/to/python/app.py in my local crontab (via contab -e) isn't being executed?00:03
DCat--qwiksilver711, but you could if you wanted.. just .img the win7 partition and keep it aside BEFORE you do anything that can cause uh-ohs...00:03
edbianTempus_Fugit, There already is a root account.  To access it ubuntu uses sudo00:03
bastid_raZorTempus_Fugit: you add a user to the admin group if you need root privledges00:03
OerTempus_Fugit, leaving keyring without pass solves the keyring-question-issue00:04
ThePCKidHe means something in the means of "su root" I think...00:04

someguyno eMyller00:06
someguyi dont have medibuntu00:06
eMyllersomeguy: i just checked it, googleearth comes from medibuntu here.00:07
ThePCKidgnoob, it's "passwd root"00:07
eMyllermaybe it changed or i just mixed it up.00:07

abbronzatohello i need to reinstall from zero a win xp partition, on a ubuntu hd, any tips for recovery grub easily after that? thanks in advance00:08
gnoobthe default root password?? hmm have no idea.. ubuntu let root be disabled by default for security reasons.  But can be enabled by sudo su and write passwd to set new root password...   (correct me if Im wrong anybody)00:08

rezzy95 %00:09
Dr_Willisgnoob:  ammoung other ways.. but its niot  reccomended00:09
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo00:10
eMyllerabbronzato: it's very easily found on google; there's a wiki page about that with a high rank. i don't remember its url now.00:10

ThePCKidBy default, the root password is scrambled and locked (I think)00:10
ThePCKidTry "passwd root" to change the password to a known value. Then try "su root" and type in root's pass00:10
DCat--Zelozelos, exactly. :)00:10

Bridge|1. In a command window, type dmesg and see if you can see any messages relating to the specific hardware.00:36
Bridge|2. Alternatively and also in a command window, type tail -f /var/log/syslog. Then, insert the hardware, like the wireless card and see what messages come up. This should give you an indication of whether the hardware is being detected or not.00:36

Now I can't get past that black screen. I tried using a live CD in text mode like I saw on a tutorial, but I may have done it w00:51

rezzylooks like ill have to go back to windows anyone know the best way to make a clean simple windows boot disc via ubuntu01:39
otocusand its not about alsa, its about ubuntu... on ubuntu 9.x it worked perfectly.. on 10x it doesnt :(01:39
lorcan I remove empathy?01:39
otocusrezzy, i dont, but if you only want to boot... there are a lot of boot disk mini isos on net01:39
thune3martian: for xargs you should probably use the "-1" option to ls as well.01:39
otocusah... the.. one... is... bartpe01:39

kassahor unload it fully so vbox can pass through the usb01:41

daddysmurfwhat's the advantage of using a 32-bit system over a 64-bit system?01:43
Guest28494Martian, I am asking are you serious, why wouldn't they think about that? Or even letting you install everything onto a dvd so you don't have this01:43
martianjosedose: paste the contents of yours to http://paste.ubuntu.com/ and link it here01:43

kassahdaddysmurf, for me? support for 8GB of ram without using tricks01:44
martianGuest28494: because as I initially asserted, I doubt it happens very often. I've never heard of anyone running a server wirelessly. I would suspect that most people jam their server in the same corner as their router.01:45
pradeeprezzy, when you connect it on ubuntu click ont the network manager you should see it there01:45
daddysmurfkassah: that's the driving reason for me to use 64-bit ubuntu... but the site suggests 32-bit01:45
codebrainzdaddysmurf, no advantage really, unless you have some weird software that doesn't support 64-bit01:45
deexannihilateCan someone walk me through using Super Grub to fix my booting01:45
daddysmurfcodebrainz: ty, 64 it is01:45
hiexpodaddysmurf,  use 32 bit it's better01:45
daddysmurfhiexpo: why?01:45
kassahdaddysmurf, software compatability (especially proprietary programs such as flash) is slightly better on 32bit01:45
jakexksapart from proprietary programs, there's no reason to use 32 bit01:46
Guest28494Martian, some people merely can't due to circumstances and I don't think it'd be so hard of them to add wireless-tools01:46
rezzypradeep: ove got network connections and network proxy, i have no idea where network manager is01:46
martianGuest28494: What is it preventing you from connecting to a wireless network on the server anyway?01:46
nebbinCan someone give me some advise about installing Ubuntu from a flash drive?01:46
kassahdaddysmurf, I imagine flash is 99% of the reason for that recommendation.01:46
hiexpodaddysmurf,  because 64 bit becomes boggy and hangs01:46
daddysmurfI'm planning to run a vm with windows to over-come the 64-bit software limitations, as well as the no-photoshop-on-linux concept01:46
jakexksIf you need flash, you're doing it wrong anyhow ;)01:47
daddysmurfI think I should be fine01:47
kassahcodebrainz, it's not exactly a common printer except amoung places like pharmacies and shipping docks01:47

mdgeorge1edbian: there's no ubuntu_version01:50
kassahcodebrainz, I suspect there is a module attached to it even though it's not fully installed preventing VirtualBox from being able to make use of it. so a way to look determine which modules were using a usb device would also work01:50
Jordan_Udeexannihilate: Do you have a Linux machine that you can use to make the bootable flash drive? Is it OK if the current contents of the flash drive are wiped?01:50

Jordan_Udeexannihilate: Ok, then you need to use a utility called "dd" to put the SG2D image onto the flash drive.01:51
kassahcodebrainz, if it's supported in linux... I can just share it to the windows box... if it's pass-thru-able... that works even better01:52

Jordan_Udeexannihilate: First, find out what the device name for your flash drive is. It's important that you are sure about this as you don't want to whipe the wrong drive.01:53
Guest28494Vigo_ that would be because I'm on my phone01:53
the_filekassah: just spread a virus over their network01:53

realubotIs it possible to use kdm to log in to Gnome session? I'm planning to set up a multiseat but the the new gdm doesn't seem to support multisessions but kdm does. The problem is that I don't want to use KDE as desktop environment. I qant the default Gnom desktop.05:08
Clintegerrealubot, yeah there should be a dropdown menu somewhere on there05:08
ClintegerI originally installed kubuntu and then ubuntu-desktop for gnome, and I was able to get into gnome :)05:08
ralliaswhats the default password for user cyrus for the cyrus server?05:09
theadminrealubot: Yes, KDM can log in to GNOME, KDE and (with a bit of bugs) XFCE05:10
hjstI have a problem formatting a USB flash drive - when I plug the drive in it shows under "My Computer" (or whatever it's called in gnome), and I can see the device in Disk Utility but it shows as having no volumes. When I try to format the device (with any partition scheme) I get the same error message: "Error creating partition table: helper exited with exit code 1: cannot open /dev/sdb: No medium found" - I've tried on a windows machine as well with no success05:10
hjst - is the USB flash drive dead?05:10
theadmin(it displays the "Xfce4" menu option twice)05:10
realubotClinteger: Ok, nice to know. Thanks.05:11
realubottheadmin: Will there be any problem (due to bugs ir something) to use KDM as login window for Gnome?05:12
Topy44btw, any ideas why slim wont work on my netbook? i tried it on a vm and it works perfectly. but my netbook just hangs at "Starting X display manager: slim"05:12
theadminrealubot: Nope, worked before and it worked very well05:12
realubottheadmin: Will it somehow affect the "stability" of Gnome?05:12
theadminrealubot: Nah.05:12
ralliaswhats the command line command that changes a users password?05:13
Topy44realubot: afaik, you cant shut down the computer from gnome directly anymore, you have to log out and choose shutdown from kdm. at least it used to be that way.05:13
hjstrallias: passwd05:13
theadminrallias: sudo passwd USERNAME05:13
KB1JWQrallias: passwd05:13
realubottheadmin: Ok, this is very good news because I plan to use kdm to start multisession X on my multiseat configuration. It won't work using the new gdm, I think.05:13
theadminTopy44: Huh. Well, it worked fine on Jaunty05:13
Topy44oh ok.. i havent used it that way in many years05:13
theadminrealubot: It wouldn't work with old GDM either... gdm never supported multisessions :/05:14
realubottheadmin: Ok, but if that is the only problem then I can learn to live with that.05:14
Topy44ah, indeed, it was implemented in 2007 :) i am somewhat out of date05:14
Topy44realubot: ignore what i said :)05:15
realubottheadmin: Ok, but I have found som patches for getting it to work using gdm 2.20.05:15
Fudgewhat does this mean, [drm:radeon_ib_schedule] *ERROR* radeon: couldn't schedule IB(14).05:15
realubottheadmin: Originally I planned to use XDMCP but there seem to be some security issues due to using that Display Manger.05:15
Topy44another problem: when booting my netbook, it hangs for a long time (about a minute) at "getpwuid_r(): failed due to unknown user id (0)"05:15
Topy44i have no idea what that means05:16
realubotTopy44: Ok, I will. :)05:16
Topy44and internet searches were... inconclusive.05:16
theadminrealubot: I'm unsure what is the GDM version Ubuntu uses actually, and applying patches means recompiling from source05:16
thune3kassah: i think you need to put a rule at the top of the file that matches your device, and have the action be to goto a label at the end of the file. Beginning something like: SUBSYSTEM=="usb",ATTR{idVendor}=="041e", ATTR{idProduct}=="4130",GOTO="end_printer_config"  and then have line at the end: LABEL="end_printer_config"05:16
theadminTopy44: It means that it can't get "pwuid_r" whatever that is for user "root"05:16

* Clinteger is removing all of kubuntu-desktop05:18
realubotWhat are the big difference between kdm and gdm really?05:18

theadminrealubot: ...everything05:18
realubottheadmin: Ok, it looks almost the same to me. :)05:18

realubotI mean, you can choose user and login to your account. :S05:18
AntonioXZAP? Root (admin)?05:18
AntonioXwhat is ZAP?05:19
theadminTopy44: Okay... I guess it's claiming it can't find the password entry for root... Run this: "sudo usermod -p '!' root"05:19
AntonioXSorry I am new with Ubuntu05:19
nicxvannevermind i think i found it05:19
Topy44theadmin: indeed i didnt set a root pw05:19
airtonixis it possible to have "Thunderbird Shredder" access a "Standard Unix mbox spool" mail account such as the one each user has in their home folder ?05:19
theadminAntonioX: Zapping is killing X and restarting it. Can be done by hitting Alt+PrtSc+K or (in some desktops) Ctrl+Alt+Backspace05:20
realubotWell, thanks guys (and girls). This is exciting. I hope that I get this multisession working.05:20
realubotBy the way, why isn't Gnome having the multisession option? Is there any special reason to avoid it or hasn't the gdm been developed that much yet?05:21
theadminAntonioX: root user is the superuser, the admin, whatever - it's allowed to do everything. However under no circumstances should you log in as root directly, use "sudo COMMAND" to run commands as admin (Or "gksu COMMAND" to run graphical applications as admin)05:22
Topy44theadmin: interesting... i still get the error, but it no longer hangs - in fact, it just accelerated boot time by about 60 seconds, which is amazing :)05:22
AntonioXOk let me see it I get it, I do ZAP, and I do not run Nero as a root....  Right?05:22
Topy44(though i just installed a different kernel, MIGHT be related to that too)05:22
theadminTopy44: Weird.05:22

theadminnicxvan: Either be root or chmod/chown the file so that you're allowed to access it05:31

nicxvantheadmin i don't know what that means this is my first day using non windows05:32

AAAnicxvan  as long as it aska for a pw you should be good to edit in any editor05:33

nicxvanit didn't ask for pw05:33

nicxvanwell my edit didn't work, but i was able to save the file, now i jsut have to figure out how to make it accept the extra buttons on my mouse05:36
VanessaEhm, mpd is out.  This has to be transparent to the PC that's playing the music (and no, I'm not trying to snoop :-)  )05:36
MokoN00bthat would be nice if that package existed05:36
VanessaEhow does one do this via pulse?  does it work like a shoutcast stream?05:36

violinapprenVanessaE:  I use pulseaudio for this and it's rather simple. You use paprefs to enable networking functionality in the machine with speakers, copy ~/.pulse-cookie from the remote machine to the local one, edit client.conf in the local machine and set the server-name to the remote machine05:37
MokoN00bthere are several pidgin packages, but "pidgin-plugin-pack" is not one of them05:37

realubottheadmin: Ok, but I have 500GB of disc space, will gdm really need several GB?05:41
violinapprenVanessaE: you'll have the local machine (say a laptop) forwarding all it's audio to the remote machine (with intended speakers) merged with its own audio05:41
MokoN00bbut it doesnt seem to have alternate layouts for, say, spanish05:41
MokoN00bi was expecting that05:41

boumaso i understand some of the nice lvls and 7455 etc, binary addition of single bit fields into octal, but how do run a right-click mplayer niced, i think it will help mplayer from occasionally start skipping when there is no input, this could ultimately be a kernel issue, but i'm not just yet going to compile my own kernel. although who thinks that is agood idea?06:03

BryanWB_hey guys, anybody know an ubuntu client that I can use to access a windows machine by remote desktop?06:25
ultrazAfter upgrading to 10.04, when booting I have not splash/boot screen, and very often it gets frozen when. It just say "Starting up....." for some time and then goes directly to login window (unless it freezes trying to start X). Any ides ?06:25
rokyBryanWB_: rdesktop06:26
vbox@bryan: rdesktop06:26
BryanWB_roky, vbox  tks, can i only login remotely or can I actually monitor someone else's user session?06:26
BryanWB_i want to help my mother-in-law w/ her many computer problems06:26
vbox@Bryan: the software center should have GUIs for rdesktop06:26
BryanWB_vbox, tks06:27
putaasat gdm, only root is able to login, normal users can't, they get back to gdm... sometime when i reboot i get a little cnace to login wiht a norma user but with the session without a panel or something like that. , but anohter reboot and the back to the same problem.06:27
ultrazBryanWB_: teamviewer is great.06:27
putaasplease hel06:27
rokyBryanWB_: You could technically monitor it. If you want too, I recommend teamviewer06:27

jhaluskaGuys I'm a bit sleep deprived, but I upgraded my brother's ubuntu box's motherboard.  The network isn't working.  ANybody got a how to or something how to fix it?  I think he's running 9.04.06:28
boumaantonio2: hmm Antonix left? darn, i had a solution i tihnk for his prob, mount cd as wav files using cdfs or cdemu06:28
ultrazEvilTrek: /etc/ssh06:28
boumaDoes anyone have any suggestions re sudo mplayer on rightclick in nautilus ??06:28
ultrazjhaluska: can you pastebin lspci -k06:28
_genuser_bouma: trying to get nautilus to remember to play using mplayer?06:28
jhaluskaultraz, unlikely since I'm on a seperate computer and I can't get online with the other one, but let me go run it.06:29
wageCan someone please tell me the path to the ubuntu one client, my icon is missing?06:29
bouma_genuser_: i can do that, its doing it niced to -2006:29
violinapprenbouma: you can make a shell script in ~/bin that launches mplayer and renices it06:29
ultrazjhaluska: doble check if kernel module/driver is loaded for your network card.06:29
boumaviolinappren: what flags would i put on the script ? 7455 ?06:29
violinapprenbouma: flags ? do you mean permissions? just chmod +x it06:30
_genuser_bouma: wait you can force nautilus to launch a media player that's not totem?06:30
abhi_navwage, you may get better help in #ubuntuone06:30
boumaviolinappren: and what do i used to transfer the argument external to the script (the fn) into the 1st arg of mplayer inside the script (sorry dont know much bash)06:30
wageabhi_nav:  thanks06:30
vboxjoin #ubuntuone06:31
abhi_navwage, :)06:31
ultraz_genuser_: mine is set to launch mplayer when opening media/video files.06:31
abhi_navvbox, type /j #ubuntuone06:31
_genuser_ultraz: and how did you actually accomplish that?06:31
boumaviolinappren: but when the sudo requires me to type the password it wont receive the pw and will hang/timeout06:31
boumaviolinappren: silent timeout06:31
violinapprenbouma: then use gksu06:31
jhaluskaultraz: It mentions the nvidia MCP61 ethernet and seems to load forcedeth06:31
ultraz_genuser_: right click on video file, and go to open with tab.06:32
ultraz_genuser_: put there which app you want to open those type of files.06:32
boumaviolinappren: hrm, ok. i accept this is more secure, but can i do it in a reasonably secure but automatic way that doesnt require the root pw every right click on a movie ??06:32
boumaviolinappren: likea suid script that cant be edited by userac?06:32
_genuser_bouma: in the script $1 refers to the first argument passed to script. You can pass that to mplayer.06:33
boumaviolinappren: well i guess i'll google suid scripts then. thanks06:33
ultrazjhaluska: what is forcedeth?06:33
bouma_genuser_: cheers06:33
Blue1ultraz: die now dammit i mean it kill -906:33
_genuser_ultraz: that never works on any of hte gnome installation I have used. Right click video file, select mplayer or say use custom command, check box so it will remember it. and next double click file, it launches with totem again.06:33
jhaluskaultraz: It mentions it under that ethernet line about kernel module and driveer.06:34
jhaluskaI'm really wishing the other computer was closer. lol06:34
violinapprenbouma: i don't think suid can help you since it will run everything as root, including mplayer06:34
|jonathan|help me06:34
_genuser_jhaluska: if you have wifi adapter usb one, just plug it in, then ssh to it.06:34
ultraz_genuser_: I have successfuly used that method to launch vlc for long time, and in the past few months with mplayer.06:34
jhaluska_genuser_: I might have one floating around, let me check.06:35
_genuser_ultraz: that's weird. I have never gotten it to work. I have ended up doing ln -sf to link mplayer under totem name to fool it06:35
boumaviolinappren: hrm, thats a shame, but .. darn. have there ever been bufferoverruns exploited in mplayer w/root06:35
violinapprenbouma: you could use pkexec instead of gksu and thus the password will be cached for a while06:35

BryanWB_sorry to ask a dumb win question but which is the least insecure version of windows? i have only used fedora and ubuntu for last 5 yrs so i have no idea06:36
jhaluskaI have a random PCI ethernet card I can try putting in from another computer, should I try that first?06:36
boumaviolinappren: in policykit-106:36
ultraz_genuser_: yeah that will do it.06:36
VanessaEmaybe write a script that you run as root to launch mplayer as a normal user with su, pause a second, then renice it as root06:36
BryanWB_i need the least hassle for my mother-in-laws machine06:36
_genuser_BryanWB_: win7.06:36
ultrazjhaluska: you could do that. It wont hurt.06:36
|jonathan|Loshki dude i wanna use a usb edge modem with wvdial and i configured but when i type wvdial in terminal it says Modem is not responding.. that mean i cannot connect to internet06:36
BryanWB__genuser_, tks,  if i lived in the same town i would install ubuntu but i live far far away06:37
_genuser_BryanWB_: xp is pretty cool also. keep in mind to follow same security rules as linux. create user with user only permission for daily use06:37
BryanWB__genuser_, yeah, i will definitely lock down her user acct06:37
boumaVanessaE: VanessaE, does the pause have to transfer out of the 1st script so as not to be running as root, and so run nice aswell as mplayer as root?06:37
rokyBryanWB_: If you do a bit of configuring so everything is working, ex: flash, java...etc. Ubuntu would be just as good of a choice. As long as they don't have admin rights to mess with the FS.06:37
rollmani will soon have an e-book reader and was wondering if there is software compatible with ubuntu i don't have the reader yet it's on order?06:37
Loshki|jonathan|: I dunno much about usb modems. Does wvdial have a verbose mode where you can see it issue comnands to the modem?06:38
_genuser_teach them the sudo equivalent for when installing stuff. Right-click, run as admin and then create them a separate user with admin priv. XP will be better in that. Vista has issues where exes can install themselves in user's appdata folder on c:\ drive and run.06:38
VanessaEbouma, I was thinking you could try to put it all in one script, use su within to drop root privileges just long enough to launch mplayer06:38
|jonathan|Loshki what is verbose mode?06:38
YankDownUnderwvdial, when run from a term, will show what's being sent to the modem06:38
VanessaEbeen a while since I did that06:38
BryanWB__genuser_, but she is 68 and _struggling_ to learn XP06:38
ultrazUSB modems are pain in the ars.06:38
_genuser_BryanWB_: perfect time to just teach her another thing. It can be hard for the generation that didn't start off with technology06:39
BryanWB__genuser_, tks for your help, I am off06:39

|jonathan|Loshki i dont know wheter it is supported or not06:40
|jonathan|becoz the modem is not responding06:40
VanessaEbouma, so the script might contain something to the effect of:  #!/bin/bash ; su username -c mplayer & pid=$!; sleep 1; renice 19 $pid06:41
VanessaEand you'd run that as root (or use gksu[do])06:41
jhaluskaThe PCI network card fixed the internet for now (so at least now he won't kill me)06:41
YankDownUnderwhat kinda modem is the USB modem - is it a 3g modem?06:41
Slix`When I boot Ubuntu from my USB drive, it doesn't work. It either stays at the loading screen for an extremely long time or goes to some weird console screen and doesn't let me input anything.06:41

brijithmachi all, can I reuse Home directory from my old installation when I install a fresh installation?07:13
YankDownUnder|jonathan|, As I said, install it. In a terminal, then run (as root or with sudo) usb-modeswitch and after that, you run wvdialconf again to re-generate the /etc/wvdial.conf => see if that wakes the modem up and makes wvdial access it properly.07:13

mronoAlonea: say install it on another computer then change the hard drive?07:50
Aloneamrono: you could try that. install it on the hdd with another computer and swap07:51

MaRk-IVin73: or you can do in terminal: sudo apt-get remove package_name08:39
Jordan_Uits-me-again: set GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=true in /etc/default/grub and put your manual entries in /etc/grub.d/40_custom08:39

chervaCan someone give me an idea why when I have 2 PC-s with exactly the same network config (same ip,same gateway, same DNS, same MAC) when I plug the cable into the first one there is internet and when I plug it into the second I can't ping even the gateway ?08:41
Vin73thune3: do you mean the lower left corner of synaptec?08:41
Jordan_Ucherva: One likely needs a crossover cable while the other can switch automatically.08:41
annaimkonkiits-me-again: be specific on what you want to do.. do you want to change its appearence? looks? default OS? etc.08:41
AloneaI have a question? Why do I have to manually set my audio to microphone? why doesn't it detect this and automatically turn my speakers off and put sound through the headphones? i have to go to sound pref, output, and choose connector08:42
thune3Vin73: yes "sections" "STATUS" "origin" in synaptic08:42
Vin73thune3: thanks08:42
chervaJordan_U, the cable worked until I restarted the machine today ... so the cable is not a problem08:42

Jordan_Ucherva: It's possible that the enumeration of your ethernet devices is not stable, so what was previously "eth3" is now something else. In gernal, if you modify output that someone asks for in any way you should note that you have done so to avoid confusion.08:53

mike-from-canmorOk here is the problem I will just be using ubuntu 9.10 and all of a sudden it will freeze up nothing will respond and music or sound will keep repeating over and over in the background, I have to power the system off to fix this problem. It has been happening to me since I started using ubuntu and would like to fix it. So How do I fix this problem, and it also just occured this is it powered up after the crash so how can I09:17
mike-from-canmor get a log to diagnose the problem?09:17

Deisttrijntje, I can't really find what file causing the fillup anymore. The new x-session-errors is like 17 kb...09:17
Gryllidamike-from-canmor: it is OK :D09:17
egtuxGryllida , just click recover file it take a few few seconeds to complete then open it09:17
YankDownUnder|jonathan|, There are several reasons why it might NOT be detected - bad design of the hardware is one...09:17
SwedeMikemike-from-canmor: that sounds like a hard freeze, most likely there will be no logs (if the caps lock key doesn't flip the caps lock indicator for instance). You might be helped by upgrade to a later ubuntu (10.04) where the kernel doesn't have your problem, but it might also be a hw problem.09:18

Jordan_Umike-from-canmor: Upgrade to 10.04 and if the problem persists then file a bug report and it may get fixed (bugs are more likely to be fixed in 10.04 since it's the most recent release and also a long term support release).09:20
mike-from-canmorI don't think that will make a difference09:20

mike-from-canmornever mind I'm using 10.0409:21
Jordan_Umike-from-canmor: If magic sysrq doesn't work the next time this happens, then whatever else may be happening there is a serious kernel bug.09:21
mike-from-canmorHow can I find the problem?09:21
SwedeMikeClinteger: you might be missing something from your environment variables, try outputting stderr etc to a file and run it from cron and see what comes out at that file... like add "> /tmp/cronout.txt 2>&1" to the cron line and then take a look at that file09:21
mike-from-canmorit happens to me relatively often09:21
mike-from-canmorIt just occured to so I have log files09:21
Clintegerhm okay, thanks :D09:21
Jordan_Umike-from-canmor: So if sysrq magic fails next time run "ubuntu-bug linux" to submit a bug report. Submitting a bug report is a way to get support from the developers of the software itself :)09:22

jigphello how to insall ftp server?so that my friend can connect to me.thanks09:32
YankDownUnder|jonathan|, Linux kicked my kitten09:32
iceroot|jonathan|: you have a support-question? and please remove the | from your nick, its "hard" to type that nick09:32
jigpi followed this tutorial but it didnt work https://help.ubuntu.com/6.06/ubuntu/serverguide/C/ftp-server.html09:33
|jonathan|YankDownUnder lol so ur still with linux09:33
mikeoserUSUL: i thought so, but it does not.. I have grub2.   FYI  my ubuntu installation CD failed to install Grub2 so i chosen to install Lilo. When the install completed I removed lilo and installed grub2 by hand. Booting works, everything works except from the auto update of grub menu list with newly apted kernels..09:33
YankDownUnder|jonathan|, Um...actually, yes I am. Since 1992 and still going.09:33
MisterioAnyone knows where is torrc in ubuntu 10.04?09:33

jigpfigure002 : how to connect local? i tried in remote...09:34
Archive555Okay, I've installed ubuntu, and after backing up the contents of one of my partitions, I delted it, and am now ready to format it with a filesystem that both Ubuntu and my Windows 7 dual-boot can access, after looking around, it seems Fat32 is the standard, but this partition is going to be 870GB, and I read that it becomes inneficient after that.09:34
Archive555Wondering what filesystem to use, thanks in advance09:35
mikeoserUSUL: for grub the following is installaed: grub-common, grub-pc, grub209:35

erUSULqwiksilver711: easiest of the two imho09:36

Archive555llutz: Sorry for newbishness, but I thought linux couldn't read that?09:42
mikeoserUSUL:  you were correct that grub-pc.postinst  contains calls to update-grub;  do you know whether these postinst scripts are logged?09:42
nasahi all09:42
llutzArchive555: it can09:42
icerootArchive555: is an on running on that partition or just used for transfering files?09:42
llutz!ntfs > Archive55509:42
ubottuArchive555, please see my private message09:42
mikeoserUSUL: oops.. should have been in the kernel package09:42
erUSULbullgard4: sed can use any delimiter char. the most common one is / but you can use # if you want09:42
erUSULmikeos: really dunno sorry09:42
Jordan_Ubullgard4: It serves the same purpose as '/' normally would, except since you're not using '/' you don't have to escape paths in the pattern. Any character can be used as a delimiter.09:42
Archive555It's for file storage on both Ubuntu and 709:42
zoran119erUSUL: do i need to run someting for grub to pick up these changes to this file?09:43
Archive555Music, movies, documents, etc.09:43
figure002jigp: i see, i never really tried it that way.. could you try and connect anonymously? chance this setting first to: anonymous_enable=YES09:43
bullgard4erUSUL, Jordan_U Thank you for explaining.09:43
icerootArchive555: i would use ntfs because windows can read it by default09:43
erUSULzoran119: sudo update-grub09:43
icerootArchive555: like ubuntu09:43
Archive555Iceroot: thanks, the main reason was that somewhere I read that linux couldn't read/write to it.09:44
icerootArchive555: ntfs is working fine since some years with ntfs09:44
icerootArchive555: linux is working fine...09:44
Jordan_Ubullgard4: You're welcome. Did you ever get your situation worked out? (it seems we're mostly timezone incompatible as it's 2:00 AM for me again:)09:44
Archive555Okay, cool, thanks again for the help.09:44
jigpfigure002 : you mean i will set YES? and put back the "#" ?09:45
dsearleArchive555, IIRC previously you could only read ntfs, but that was a while ago:)09:45
figure002jigp: nevermind, i just read that it's ON by default when commented. So just try to login without a username and password.09:46
mikeoserUSUL:  interesting finding:  i tried "rgrep -i update-grub ./" under /var/lib/dpkg/info  on a different machine where auto update works, and just memtest86+ and grub is matched09:46
mikeoserUSUL: that would mean that kernels do not call the update-grub shell script or if they do then indirectly09:46
figure002jigp: or maybe with the username "anonymous", i'm not sure..09:47
jigpfigure002 : i can login without login/pass.but im in the Command: LIST and then i get Error: Connection Timedout Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing09:47

DaijoubuMaRk-I on a burned disk09:52
mikeosJordan_U: i am using grub2, what makes you think I'm using the legacy one?09:52
erUSULpommesky: shares for the user are in ~/.gvfs/ so " cd ~/.gvfs/ "  but still not sure what you are actually asking09:52
figure002jigp: if so, you could check if that user has a home directory; i think maybe it's trying to LIST that directory, but can't find/read it.09:52
Jordan_Umikeos: You mentioned menu.lst in #grub, which is from grub legacy.09:52

So this is no problem for me any more and I can tackle it later myself. --  After you went to bed I repeated the command you gave using as a prefix the command 'directories="usr/bin". But this did not strip off the 'src' group ownership of all files in the /usr/bin directory.09:55

Dr_Willisxover:  FreeNX will give better speeds - but it will be a little harder to setup. Ive not had any issues using vino on my local lan. But i also am sure to disable compiz, and other effects.11:15

red2kicDr_Willis: Heh. I just got on the computer and the first thing I read was your last statement. You have an old hardware or something or you're just a minimalist freak?11:17
Dr_Willisred2kic:  vnc is easialy slowed down by a full gnome or kde desktop.  Thats what we were talking about 'slow vnc'  switching to kuist a window manager helps vnc out greatly11:18
xoverDr_Willis: I can connect to windows no issue with vnc, so why so slow in inux?11:19
chervacan someone explain to me how a ubuntu machine can ping another (I can see the ICMP request and respond in wireshark) but in the terminal I get 100 % packet lost ? Same with the DNS requests and internet at all .... this machine is sharing it's internet connection and machines behind it have no problem with the internet..... I tried to flush the iptables -  same result ....11:19
Dr_Willisxover:  could be the desktop is more 'complex' so slowing things down.  I tend to run vnc in its own 'hidden' desktop also. Not showing the 'current/local' desktop - that also helps to speed it up.11:20
Dr_WillisVNC is a very flexiable tool with much more.. err.. flexibility under linux, then it has under windiows.11:20
xoverDr_Willis: which version of vnc server do you run?11:20
Dr_Willisxover:  lately ive been using tightvnc. or vnc4server. I did learn abouit one called 'tigervnc' the other day. but havent tried it yet. I finally DID get freenx working. and fouind freenx a LOT LOT faster then vnc11:21

Dr_WillisRishab_:  ive never had to install any of that stuff in the past. I can access dvd video disks  as if they were data disks just fine. What are you wanting to do with the disk? Playit? if so try vlc and see if vlc mounts it poperly12:25

Likely there might be items installed from dotdeb that lingers and thus is messing with your package system. Try starting synaptic (Or aptitude ncurses, might do likewise) and checking out what's under "local/obsolete packages" And see if you can downgrade the relevant packages there to the proper ubuntu version. Take care if that wants to remov14:17

Industrialits-me-again: like i said i removed all xubuntu-* packages but the apops (eg thunar and xfce-*) are still there14:18

freakynlhi, i'm running 10.04 server with a java based webserver that is used to upload lot's of data (online backup). The clients uploading regularly loose their connection for up to 5 minutes and then log a network error, after the 5 mins they happily continue. ufw is enabled and 80/443 is open in there (http(s) is used to upload). I think it's some kind of rate limiter in ufw or something can it be removed (and perferably only for the 80/443)?14:20
Unknown0BCActionParsnip, Well. If I can just figure out why the ./configure is not seeing my libraries.14:20
its-me-againIndustrial: in terminal try this "sudo apt-get purge xfce4 && sudo apt-get remove xfce4" if that does not work then find each application adn remove them in synaptic ok14:20

BoulderDavellutz, copied the root user .bashrc and .profile into the /etc/skel but still not working (such as tabbed completion) for the new user14:21
ActionParsnipUnknown0BC: as you are compilig, you need the dev package, not just the binary14:21
its-me-againIndustrial: reboot and let us know if that works14:22
Unknown0BCI've gone nuts installing everything qt to try resolve the problem.14:22
Industrialreboot o_O?14:22
Unknown0BCActionParsnip, yeah i know.14:22
ActionParsnipUnknown0BC: i'd ask in #qt14:22

BoulderDaveActionParsnip, the .bashrc and .profile file was copied into the new user folder properly when i created the user... however i still don't have the same command line options (such as tab completion) that the root user has (of which i copipes its .bashrc and .profile files from).   am I going the right diretion with this?14:37
linxehfeindbild: isnt the standard version 5.3.2 now ?14:38
arandtofufish: Meh, you want butoons and flashing text? :p   There probably is, but I don't know them. Maybe in properties -> display...14:38
BoulderDave(they came from the /etc/skel directory, and are owned by the new users, looks right)14:38

Vigo_I was trying for a vanilla Ubuntu, I do not need Bluetooth, Printers, and other packages,I downloaded the Minimal with hopes of doing a custom or personal install ofg packages as I needed or required that uses minimum resources and is not such a monolithic kernel of packages I never use, I did the Minimal Install, but ended up with tti only, what or where did I foul up at?14:52
n00b__i want to dispaly all my dpkg --get selections | less during my startup , what should i do???14:54
DrMax__I have a macbookpro, I want the "gauge" key (F4, without function) to be remapped to show battery information. What's the best way of doing so ?14:54
abhijithello abhinav_singh14:54
abhinav_singhhello abhijit14:55
n00b__i want to dispaly all my dpkg --get selections | less during my startup , what should i do???14:55
jimlovell777Vigo_: I've never tried a minimal install only the alternate install but perhaps you didn't foul up, maybe that's just what it is. I would do a full install and de-select everything you don't need use. Synaptic will generate a script to copy that action should you need to re-install at a later date,14:55
ActionParsnipVigo_: install lubuntu-desktop   for a minimal distro14:55
theadminn00b__: You wouldn't pipe it to less, or else your boot'd be stuck14:55
ActionParsnipyou can remove cups and bluetooth stuff after the install but it will be very small and incredibly fast14:55
n00b__y so ??? wil the EOF wont work14:55
jimlovell777DrMax__: System->Preferences->Keyboard shortcuts should do it I think,14:56
ActionParsnipn00b__: less is interactive14:56
theadminn00b__: Just DON'T pipe it to less and that's all?14:56
DrMax__jimlovell777 : no, there's no "show battery status" in there14:56
Vigo_jimlovell777, ActionParsnip: Thank you very much.14:56
DrMax__I've also looked in gconf-editor for a setting that had no interface element attached to it, to no avail14:57
n00b__so what if i want to print all these with a diff of .25 seconds or less14:57
n00b__but still how to do it14:57
jimlovell777DrMax__: You would add the "Show Battery Status" command and map the key to it. I'd have to google the "Show battery Status" command though.14:57
DrMax__n00b__ : maybe with watch?14:57
Vigo_ActionParsnip: I think that is the ticket, I do not have a printer and knew I was forgetting something.14:57
ActionParsnipn00b__: make a script to do it then launch it at startup with an ampersand to put it in the background14:57
ActionParsnipVigo_: just pull out cups and you'll be ok14:57
n00b__can you please elaborate i am very new to linux14:58
coz_Vigo_,  I found that Edubuntu-desktop  has both kde and gnome applications but is far faster than if you installed both of those DE's onto ubuntu14:58
theadmincoz_: Somehow that is true14:58
DrMax__jimlovell777 : yes, I thought of that, but after quite a lot of googleing I haven't found an acceptable lynx-èsque way to do this. All I found was complicated scripts to parse ACPI information14:58
Vigo_ActionParsnip: I was going to use that auto script on the forums, looks painless enough....14:58

jimlovell777DrMax__: The status bar top right shows it at a click, there's gotta to be a way to invoke it with a keypress. I/we'd have to find that command though, I think that's the most favorable solution.14:59
theadminHm... Say, if I'm torrenting something onto a NTFS device, will it be in any way slower (?) than on ext4?14:59
ActionParsnipn00b__: ampersand puts commands in the background so other apps can run, you can use a script to do whatever you wish. I recommend you output the output of your commands to files and you can read the files14:59
ActionParsnipn00b__: be patient, i'm not that bloody fast14:59

theadminknightstalker: Encoding. Do you know what encoding they are in?15:00
DrMax__jimlovell777 : that's the solution I was exploring. There aught to be a way, since on my other laptop, the xf86Battery key works well15:00
coz_Vigo_,  which is the hardware configuration of your machine?15:00

coz_Vigo_,  rather "what" is it15:01

coz_Vigo_,  that shouldnt be a problem...how much ram and which video card?15:01
theadminVigo_: 1.7 gig? That's damn fast to run GNOME... (which runs perfectly well on even 512mb)15:01
