mducharmeI had told them to get an hp laserjet because it would work00:09
mducharmebut the hp that they got was some kind of "winprinter"00:10
ilovefairuzdementor: what's the make and model, how are they connected?00:10
Dr_Willismducharme:  theres some Hp's that have issues.. my brother had a slight issue.. but its best to reseaerch befor spending a lot of $$$00:10

mducharmeI had it working fine back when they were on opensuse00:11
Dr_Willismducharme:  for a company. they should be checkin out the cost of ink and how much they are going to be printing. that can be 100x the xost of the printer over  the life of the printer.00:11

dementorthe same i tryed00:12
mducharmethe 1018 is suppposed to be compatible, but it isn't, that's why I wanted to make sure whatever it is is not a winprinter00:12
ActionParsnip!chroot00:12
ubottuA chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot00:12

xStinkhi i have the strangest issue00:13
Dr_WillisIdleOne:  yes. Once i fitgured out how to get it networked right. I had to plug it into the wired network first to set up the wireless settings.00:13
ActionParsnipCaer: do you have an entry for it in /etc/network/interfaces ?00:13
xStinkanyone around this time on a Sunday?00:13
=== lor is now known as rollo
CaerActionParsnip: no, but neither for eth1 which the applet shows (but I can't see my router there)00:14
IdleOneDr_Willis: mine seems to work only when it feels like it. there are drivers in the repos for it but for whatever reason it doesn't always get recognized00:14
ActionParsnipCaer: if you do, thats why. but you don't so its ok00:14
=== rollo is now known as lorenzo
Dr_WillisIdleOne:  I  do think i had to manually install the proper brother package from teh repios for the drivers.  But there was some odd issue  where it would be real slow to print. A check of the forums suggest just using the Generic PCL5 driver. and now its printing quite well00:14

octavio-rdzCaer: if you do ifconfig eht0 and it does show you the ip then it must be ok ..... if not you could try ifconfig eth0 up00:14
ActionParsnipbidaboy: there is no best app for ANYTHING.00:15
Dr_WillisIdleOne:  try the generic pcl5 perhaps. It was weird bug. it would take 40 min for it to print a little bity page..  :) i seiwtched to the genric pcl5 and not had any issues since.00:15
ActionParsnipbidaboy: theres no best anything in life00:15
xStinkI installed 10.4, rebooted and everything works fine00:15
dementorilovefairuz; is a lindy switch00:15
Caeroctavio-rdz: ifconfig says "cannot find eth0"00:15
Guest37482anyone know how to install python 3.1.2?00:15
ilovefairuzbidaboy: search synaptic for "tts"00:15
Dr_WillisIdleOne:  also if says its out of toner.. You can put some black tape over   one of the 'windows' (a little pencil sized clear hole) on the Toner cart. and prioberly get a few 100+ more pages out of it. :)00:15
xStinkthen i update and all of a sudden i don't have permission to use sound, reboot or anything like that00:15
ilovefairuzdementor: no model? just "lindy"00:15
ActionParsnipbidaboy: there is espeak and festival I can think of, neither are best, nor are they worst00:16
dementorbut ai try whit out the switch and the same plb00:16
octavio-rdzCaer: you if you just do eth0 it does show eth0?00:16
Dr_WillisIdleOne:  it said i was out of toner after 100 pages on one toner cart. :(   not sure how many i will actually get.00:16
octavio-rdzCaer: oops I mean if you just do ifconfig it does show eth000:16
CaerActionParsnip: lshw shows only eth1 (without naming it)00:16
weedarActionParsnip: Thanks for the suggestion :) I'd prefer being able to compile for several architectures at once though, by specifying "cross-sparc32 cross-sparc64 amd64" for example to compile for sparc32/64 on a 64-bit x86 system00:17
ilovefairuzdementor: the keyboard is not detected even without the switch?00:17
ActionParsnipCaer: you will need a ppa00:17
Caeroctavio-rdz: no00:17
IdleOneDr_Willis: right now I just want to get it working again. \o/ for saving ink hehe00:17
Guest37482anyone know how to install python 3.1.2?00:17
bidaboyi want to say that is available for diferent langage00:17
dementorilovefairuz,  yes is not detected00:17
ActionParsnipCaer: then reboot and run:  dmesg | less     and read through, see if your ethernet port is detected at boot and if there are any issues with it00:17
chris___1http://imagebin.org/106644 im on an acer extensa 4620Z and it's running really hot. fancontrol isnt reading the configuration file sudo sensors-detect make, though it was written correctly00:17
ActionParsnipGuest37482: you will need a ppa]00:17
octavio-rdzCaer: strange if you said that dmesg | grep eth shows that is there00:17
Dr_WillisIdleOne:  yea. i finally started looking in the forums for others with that slow issue.. and stumbled upon the fix. search the forums for my posts it will be ione of those.00:18
ilovefairuzdementor: the keyboard connection is usb ?00:18
DasEiGuest37482: any certain reason for this newer version ?00:18
IdleOneDr_Willis: will do thanks.00:18
dementorilovefairuz, yes00:18
Guest37482not really00:18
Caeroctavio-rdz: I did not says that ; it seemed like the wireless card started as eth0, then was renamed eth100:18
Dr_WillisIdleOne:  over all - i give it a B+ - good price.. decent speed.. ok features..  :)  its just real LOUD when it first starts up.. and  its right next to my bed.. so the wife prints while im asleep and i hit the ceiling.00:19
ilovefairuzdementor: can you ssh into the machine from another one? and type lsusb00:19
corpsegrindrHas anyone succefully gotten HDMI audio to work on a nvidia G210? I have run every tutorial I can find  and have still not been able to get it working00:19
Guest37482i just like to keep things up to date and im new to python00:19
DasEiGuest37482: then stay with the repo one on a productional system or try in a vm first, as dependencies , by a small chance, can mess up00:19
ilovefairuzdementor: try attaching them without the switch and restart the computer00:19
dementorilovefairuz, from this computer i cant00:19
Ace2I need help. I am running Ubuntu 10.04. I had the PC up and running when I left today. When I came back I went to get back on and it was froze on a black screen. I was able to see and move my mouse around but the password screen would not come up. I restarted and it wont go past "Grub loading, please wait..." Error 1700:20
CaerActionParsnip: what is a ppa? but dmesg after a reboot said something like 'udev: eth0 renamed to eth1' (eth1 is the wireless card after the boot)00:20
octavio-rdzCaer: my bad then .... did you read about the problem about the dual booting? that I typed after you said you were going to reboot?00:20

Caeroctavio-rdz: I have windows installed but I connect to IRC from an other laptop (and though a headless server)00:30
ActionParsnipCaer: do you dual boot?00:30
CaerActionParsnip: yes00:30
ActionParsnipmetalgeek: not sure00:30
FabParmahow to modify the menu into the applet to the desktop panel that has an envelop as icon?00:30
metalgeekActionParsnip, could you spare a second?00:31
CaerActionParsnip: windows 7, ubuntu Lucid ; I have three kernels installed, and tested the last two00:31
ActionParsnipCaer: ok the windows boot may be tying up the device, head into device manager and disable power saving on the device as well as uncheck the box to allow the device to wake windows up. Windows is screwing te hardware up00:31
octavio-rdzCaer: ok got to "Devices manager" (or something like that)  and select the ethernet card then properties and see if there is something like Link Down power saving00:31
ActionParsnipmetalgeek: sure00:31

metalgeekActionParsnip, Cheers, I don't know if you remember but I installed Ubuntu LL to a 500gb SATA drive a few days ago.  I still have two little 40gb ATA's left around. I'm planning to put one of them in this machine as a place to put windowsXP, Could this create problems as I hear that GRUB is alot more intelligent than win bootloader and so best practice would dictate that I install Win first. Ant thoughts would be warmly recieved thanks.00:35
FabParmahow to modify the menu into the applet to the desktop panel that has an envelop as icon? i'd like to set Thunderbird, as default and add some link useful to me, at the moment the only shwon is Pidgin link00:35

TheEskimometalgeek: If you are installing windows and ubuntu on different harddrives the order doesn't matter.00:36
ActionParsnipmetalgeek: sure you can install windows to them, you will need to add the entry in grub as grub can boot windows hapily00:36
CaerActionParsnip octavio-rdz : unchecked, and it worked ; thank you very much for your patience and $&#@ windows !00:36
ActionParsnipCaer: yep :(00:37
ilovefairuzecondudeawesome: gnome-volume-control00:37
octavio-rdzCaer: that is a good new.00:37
metalgeekTheEskimo, ActionParsnip , Thanks guys, so just install the hardware, bootup with win cd, install as per normal & then tell GRUB about it?00:37
econdudeawesomelovefairuz is that the gnome equivalent of alsa-mixer, or does that allow a change in theme?00:37
ActionParsnipmetalgeek: sounds good to me. To be double safe you can disconnect the power from the Ubuntu drive and then you will have no threat of damaging the data00:38
TheEskimometalgeek: Yup. You might have to change the harddrive boot order in your bios, but probably not. It should be just that simple.00:38

wizard_ActionParsnip, cheers nearly there i think00:56
ilovefairuzionut: no software, it works out of the box, after you buy the bluetooth dongle (attaches to a usb port),  right click on bluetooth icon and select "setup new device", the rest is an easy wizard, then you'll find the connection in the network manager icon added automatically00:57

aerobajrib: well, when I open up rox-filer, all  my files show up as text icons, and when I click to open them, they open as empty text files01:56
ActionParsnipjerald: great, ok run: gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list   and change:  deb repo.offensive-security.com/dist/bt4 binary/    to:   deb http://repo.offensive-security.com/dist/bt4 binary/01:56
coz_ionut,   I believe they are .ogg files01:56
Chaorainilovefairuz: no, two seperate lights but one switch for both01:56
jribaeroba: and if you use nautilus?01:56
ActionParsnipjerald: save the new file then run: sudo apt-get update       why you'd want to use that PPA is anyones guess01:56
coz_jerald,   that is your sources list ...yes?  what help do you need with it?01:56
ionutcoz_: the fastest way to install it is to copy it in the sounds directory?01:56
ridinilovefairuz: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=Ta8VK3tU01:57
bockWhy do all my jpeg files coming from the built in card reader show up distorted? I can view them fine with imageviewer but when uploading to facebook still distorted.01:57
aerobajrib: I use both natilus and rox01:57
coz_ionut,  that is where i used to place my own sounds i would create .. I assume it is in the same place   just be sure you rename the files if t hey are not renamed already to match which sounds go with which events01:57
jribaeroba: if you use nautilus is the strange behavior also present?  Can you give an example of a specific file?01:58
ionutcoz_: ya. got that. thanks man01:58
coz_jerald,   you still there??01:58
jeraldyeah done01:58
ActionParsnipjerald: is it any better now?01:58
coz_ionut,  if the sound theme creators are "good"  then the sounds should already be named properly for the respecitve events01:58
jeraldCoz_, yeah I'm here01:59
coz_jerald,  ok I see this is your sources list   yes??  waht is the issue?01:59
jeraldActionParsnip, I'll try to update01:59
bockwhy are jpeg files distorted do they need to be imported01:59
aerobajrib: Yes, jrib, the strange behavior is still present. For example, I right click on a tar.gz file that I just downloaded, check its properties, and see that under properties the tar.gz file is text01:59
ActionParsnipjerald: cool, once you get that square, I'll give the command to install the theme01:59
ionutcoz_: ya, maybe they think if everything is done like from default , nowone will open and watch all the files...01:59
coz_bock,  depends on the resolution of jpeg images  some can be very pixelated if the resolution is low02:00
jribaeroba: what does the « file » program in a terminal say about it?02:00
ilovefairuzChaorain: tail -f /var/log/messages while you flip the switch02:00
bockthey came off my 10.3 nikon02:00
aerobajrib: what do you mean by <<file>> program?02:00
Chaorainilovefairuz: ok, I have to reboot again02:00
jribaeroba: open a terminal, type "file PATH_TO_YOUR_TAR.GZ"02:00
coz_bock,  mm  and I assume they have a high res  ...the camera is above 5 megapixels ?02:00
bockcoz: yeah for sure02:00
jeraldActionParsnip, I got another issue.. I can't go to update.. it says could not  initialize the package information02:01
jeraldActionParsnip, the one we changed..02:01
bockcoz: 10.3m02:01
coz_bock,  this may not work but could you take a screenshot of the distorted image and upload to picpaste.com02:01
ActionParsnipjerald: can you pastebin the output of: sudo apt-get update     thanks02:01

jeraldbastidrazor, heheheh evil.. pure evil..02:11
jribaeroba: Okay, but to install zim, use APT.  In any case, it seems the file doesn't exist.  Pastebin « ls /root/downloads »02:11
Dr_WillisUberN00b:  Uninstall? You can just use its uninstaller icon (that should be in the wine menus) or delete the whole .wine dir if you wanted to go extreme02:11
bastidrazorjerald: do you know what backtrack is?02:12
jeraldActionParsnip, don't worry If I mess up.. you guys can help.. every time you help me.. I am learning. every little issue every little answer is knowlege..02:12
ActionParsnipUberN00b: run: uninstaller   you can remove office there, then you can run: sudo apt-get --purge remove wine    then to remove it ALL, run: rm -r ~/.wine02:12
UberN00bDr_Willis would that uninstall the office as well ?02:13
aerobajrib: so there's nothing I can do? because it's not just the tar file I can't see. It's also everything in /root/desktop02:13

UberN00bActionParship how ? I tried with Alt+F2 the output was no such file or directory02:14

UberN00bDr_Willis, oh thanks then i'll just  uninstall wine02:14
ActionParsnipUberN00b: run it in terminal02:14
Dr_WillisUberN00b:  thats not what i said..02:15
ActionParsnipUberN00b: uninstalling wine will leave the app still installed in ~/.wine which you will need to delete02:15

jerald@ all: I'll be back for another issue.. hehehhe02:19
ActionParsnipBogus8: if the system says then i'd do it02:19
bock112F outside cpu is just getting really hot wondering if there was an easy program to control the fans02:20
Craig`coz_ 64bit02:20
ActionParsnipjerald: not for backtrack here02:20
ActionParsnipbock: the kernel will handle it02:20
coz_Craig`,  ok open synaptic package manager02:20
Dr_Willisbock:  I always go the lazy route . and take off the side of the case and get a big desk fan.02:20
coz_Craig`,  then hit the search button and type in  xserver xorg video sis02:20
Bogus8ActionParsnip: if the system says what?  I'll fsck it for sure... but you think the syftem ? telling me to check the install CD for defects?02:20
coz_Craig`,  it may or may not be there let me check here02:20

bockDr_Willis: Yeah that works for sure02:21
coz_Craig`,  it looks like it is already in the repositories02:21
lemonade_morning02:21
coz_Craig`,  open up synaptic package manager   hit the Search button and type in  xserver xorg vieo sis02:22

ShapeShifter499I've lost all sound on my ubuntu 10.04 64 bit system how do I fix this02:24
DareDevil01Hi i need to know how to set a module to load every time a reboot02:25
pfifoShapeShifter499, hi, run alsamixer form the command line and check that everything is unmuted02:25
=== an is now known as Guest82346
ShapeShifter499pfifo: it says "cannot open mixer: No such file or directory"02:26
adamkexDareDevil01: add your module to this file /etc/modules02:26
coz_Craig`,  here is another hit  on google    http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-install-sis-771671-mirage-3-video-drivers-in-ubuntu-10-04-lucid.html  I have no idea if this is valid or not02:26
pfifoShapeShifter499, was sound woring after you installed?02:26

UberN00bActionParsnip ermm, how do i run the uninstaller in terminal again ? XD02:27
PDG1so I believe it was actionParsnip that helped me last time... but either way. I was having some video issues and it was suggested i look for more information on the video card i had. I found some information but i cant understand it.02:27
Craig`E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)02:27
Craig`E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?02:27
jribPDG1: no one can help you after reading that.02:27
hentai7how can I get my resolution higher? its only at 640*480 and the monitor can do more, installed nvidia driver for gfx card, before with no driver it was 800*600 now its worse, any manual way02:27
coz_Craig`,  is that a terminal read out?02:28
Craig`yeah02:28
PDG1jrib, you're right...02:28
coz_Craig_Dem,  close synaptic package manager02:28
Craig`two minutes though, i didn't download a file02:28
Craig`righto, thanks02:28
pfifoShapeShifter499, if I was in your position I would just reinstall, in my experience trouble shooting sound problems is a big hassle.02:28
aerobajrib: thanks for trying to help. feel free to move onto something else. it looks like my bash doesn't have pastebin. sorry for wasting your time.02:28
jribPDG1: you're goal should be to write something that someone can read and then help you (use pastebin if you need to include logs or errors and the like)02:28
ShapeShifter499pfifo: reinstall? the WHOLE system?02:28
ductTapeDJhey again02:28
ductTapeDJso... yes and no.02:28
machetehey, I want to mount swap partition02:29
jribaeroba: it's not a command, you just open a web browser, copy and paste what is in your terminal, hit submit, give the url02:29
PDG1jrib, it was a mistake :P I understand what i did wrong02:29
machetewhat's the filesystem type contraction?02:29
pfifoShapeShifter499, its probbally quicker than trying to track down the issue and then attempting to fix it.02:29
ductTapeDJThanks for the advice, I can move files from windows into ubuntu now... but ubuntu doesn't see my internet connection. How do I set up wireless?02:29
ductTapeDJI know the SSID and WEP password, but there's all this weird "VPN" stuff that windows cleverly hides from me02:29
ductTapeDJand now I'm lost.02:29
machetewhat's the command to mount a swap filesystem?02:30
Muellimachete: mount.02:30
ilovefairuzChaorain: try ..  sudo echo 0 > /sys/class/net/wlan0/device/rf_kill ... sudo ifconfig wlan0 up ... iwlist wlan0 scan... this should show you available networks.. if not, it could be a hardware issue https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/23084402:30

cornwallishere is what i am trying to do: say i have a folder called /clientA and it has files in it on the local computer (server 1). I also have another server (server 2) on the same LAN that needs to share files across the network to that same folder "/clientA". will NFS be able to combine the files on that folder? can someone lead me in the correct direction?02:57

ZykoticK9!tab > wiley02:58
ubottuwiley, please see my private message02:58
ZykoticK9wiley, having to type ZykoticK9 is a pain.  Zy (TAB) is SO much easier.02:59
Random832cornwallis: so, what, some of the files in the folder are on the local computer and others are on the server?02:59
Random832could you mount it in a different directory and do a symlink02:59
wileyyep, thanks ZykoticK9 ... cool feature.  I haven't been on IRC in years03:00
cornwallisyes, correct. the files on server2 need to be available on server1 through that same folder. the software will not allow it to work in different folders03:00
Random832of course, tab completion has its own danger03:00
Random832zykes-: isn't that right?03:00

FNiI'm trying to add a cifs share, but the remote share has a space in the name. How do I represent the space for mounting?03:02

ZykoticK9FNi, you need to use a \ before the space to "escape" it03:03
FNic?03:03
thune3cornwallis: i'm still no 100% clear on what you are trying to do. But the direction I would point you in is "aufs".03:03
ZykoticK9FNi, for\ example\ this\ is\ with\ spaces03:03
FNiZykoticK9: gotcha. so "Server (E)" becomes "Server\ (E)"?03:03
ZykoticK9FNi, you got it ;)03:04
ZykoticK9FNi, no!03:04

Dr_WillisZykoticK9:  well in fstab you dont quote the spaces. you have to use some other weird sequwence.03:10

Dr_Willisa single quote is  i always think of as a 'more intense' quote :) vs03:11

FNita03:13
=== BlT is now known as ^peanut^
FNiand what about brackets, do they still need to be escaped too?03:14
ZykoticK9FNi, the \040 is NOT as escape character situation, it's an ANSI call or something03:14
randy_Dr_Willis: thats because 040 is octal for the space in ASCII03:14
ZykoticK9s\ANSI\ASCII03:14
bp0is there a ppa for nvidia drivers?03:14
bp0not the nvidia vdpau one03:15
randy_Dr_Willis: so, if you want to find a particular character that is not on you keyboard, you can just reference the ASCII table.03:15
sweetpirandy_: wouldnt that be 62 in octal?03:15
ZykoticK9bp0, that repo probably has the newest nvidia drivers packaged for ubuntu.  there may be others, good luck.03:15

ZykoticK9Dr_Willis, good to know - thanks.  New tools are always welcomed ;)03:50
Random832have you at any point screwed something up with a chmod command?03:50
E_MANok03:50
usacomputertecErudite0gre ok we installed it and now we need to see if it works.03:51

Random832E_MAN: ok, that's bad.03:51
FNiAnd another problem with fstab. The mount works perfectly but ubuntu executes fstab way before the laptop connects to the wireless network, causing the share to be inaccessible. Possible to 'delay' the mount?03:51
grumetehi I was installing wormux trough the shell and when getting "setting up wormux..." now freezes, it's just there for several minutes and nothing happens03:51

E_MANi tried to fix another problem with chmod03:52
Random832ok, you screwed it up03:52
E_MANmaybe is screwed someting up03:52
Random832what was the chmod command that you did before?03:52
Random832..y.eah03:52
E_MANhold on03:52
Random832what was the _exact_ chmod command that you did before for the other thing, and what directory did you run it from03:52
E_MANgluxon: what was the command?03:52
Wiesshundmedy yea that would be normal (proprietary drivers) you might wanna make the 10.4 liveCD. i am not sure with that up to date hardware why its saying not supported03:52
kifoHello, I was wondering if there is a way to run a program as root without leaving the terminal window open the entire time its running03:53
E_MANgluxon: ???03:53
kifoE_MAN: you mean grumete?03:53
E_MANRandom832: i think it is chmod 777 ./ -R -v03:54
Random832E_MAN: eek. _where_ did you run that?03:54
Random832what was your current working directory at that time? and who told you that command?03:54
E_MANand kifo no gluxon is my  friend03:54
kifoah okay sorry03:54
* Random832 isn't so sure he's your friend if he gave you that command03:54
E_MANi think it was home/(my user name)/03:55
Random832that shouldn't have hit /usr/bin03:55
grumetekifo I'm trying to install wormux trough the shell.03:55
ZykoticK9E_MAN, if 777 has been applied to everything in /usr/bin that's a bad thing.03:55
Random832so... again, general question03:55
E_MANk03:55
kifogrumete: something against synaptic?03:55
Random832is there any command that will verify every file against the package database?03:55

kifooh so youre using some package from the site03:56
kifo?03:56
Random832E_MAN: that's what i'm trying to find out... i gave you two things that should help, but without knowing the full scope of the problem, who knows what got screwed up03:56
grumeteok, the point is that it just stopped03:56
E_MANit is possible that i ran it in the wrong directory03:56
sweetpiRandom832: he probably missed the . in ./ and changed perms recursively on /03:56
medyis there a command to get into command line during the time ubuntu is strating up?03:56
Random832E_MAN: do me a favor and do ls -ld / /usr /usr/bin, and paste the output to pastebin03:56

Dr_WillisBiggest danger to a Ubuntu/Linux box these days.. seems to be the users :)03:57
Random832anyway, that tells us that what we were afraid of is true03:58
ZykoticK9E_MAN, if you've set everything in / to 777 i'd say reinstalling is probably easiest way to correct the issue.  Hopefully someone disagrees ;)  Good luck man, you might need it.03:58
Random832so is there any permission fixing tool?03:58
Dr_WillisRandom832:  Other then total reinstalling of every package... (ick)03:59

FabParmadoes exist a startup delayer for autostart apps?04:06

kifowhat is inside screen?04:19
ZykoticK9kifo, type "screen" in a terminal and see if it's installed, if not install it04:19
kifowhat is it....my computer is very slow, i cant run anything too graphical04:19
ZykoticK9kifo, lol it's not graphical at all.04:20
kifoedit: its installed04:20
kifotrying "screen sudo transmission -m"04:21
ZykoticK9kifo, ok.  once you type screen.  then start your transmission client as normal, then press ctrl+a+d which should "detach" you back to the first terminal.  then close the terminal window ;)04:21
Dr_Williskifo:  or from terminal --> 'commandtorun &' then 'exit'04:21
Dr_Williskifo:  and dont use the 'close button' ever. :) use exit command..04:21
kifoDr_Willis: that requires me to leave the terminal open04:22
ZykoticK9Dr_Willis, if you close the terminal won't that close the program!?04:22
kifoi dont have a close button, i dont even have a mouse :p04:22
Dr_Williskifo:  & and exit wont04:22
kifoDr_Willis: yes, it will, because as long as transmission is running, it wont complete and go to exit04:22
Dr_WillisZykoticK9:  it hasent in the last 8+ years.. there MAY besome that still close.. but ive never seen it.04:22
Dr_Williskifo:  i run gui apps with & and exit all the time.04:22
senthilIf you use "nohup sudo transmission &" you can close the terminal window04:22
NeonLightningthune3: lets hope that works(i just tried briefly and it now seems to lock up my system)04:22

ZykoticK9Dr_Willis, that was re: Transmission04:25
Dr_WillisZykoticK9:  ive never really had any issues with gui aps and sudo.. other then a 'cant open display' due to X securioty type settings04:25
kifoDr_Willis: it always leaves the terminal open for me04:25
Dr_Willisbut once i get a system set up. I dont really need to sudo much .04:25

ZykoticK9subone, do you mean minimize?  there is no kill signal for that.04:27

suboneZykoticK9, no i mean when i click the X button to close the app it goes to the system tray. what signal is equivilant of hitting the X button?04:28
kifoDURgod_: what?04:28
kifoDr_Willis: * what do you mean clarify lol04:28
ZykoticK9subone, those apps (like Rhythmbox) are special, they aren't typical linux behaviour.04:28
ActionParsnipyo yo yo04:29
suboneZykoticK9, so you're saying i cant send a specific kill signal to it? i thought thats how the wm handled it...04:29
Dr_Williskifo:  i have no idea what you ment by 'always leaves teh terminal open'   what does? be verbose and concise on IRC :)04:29
ActionParsnipZykoticK9: can I PM please dude?04:30
ZykoticK9subone, you can use "kill PID#" or "killall program_name" to kill a program, equivalent of x in corner.04:30
ZykoticK9ActionParsnip, of course.04:30
=== `mOOse` is now known as m00se
suboneZykoticK9, so then if it is equivilant how does the app know the difference between clicking the X and sending that signal, because its not going to the tray04:31
ZykoticK9subone, as i said, that tray stuff if "non-standard" behaviour04:32
suboneZykoticK9, the app already has it built in so why cant i do it?04:33
Izinucs_subone: the kill signals and x don't interact with the program itself.. mostly.. they do with the system.. it tells the system to "kill" that program04:33
ActionParsnipsubone: you can use alltray to tray apps04:34
suboneIzinucs_, so how would you recommend sending such an app to the tray as it would if the X was clicked because clicking the X and killing using killall are not the same result04:34

Dr_Willis'close with extreme prejudice' :)04:40
thune3wrek: is this after formating a new home partition? or did some action preceed this error or was it working and then out of the blue...?"04:41

FlannelCHICOGAYCOLOMBIA: This is an Ubuntu support channel, please stay ontopic.  Thanks04:48
CHICOGAYCOLOMBIAhi04:48
thune3wrek: this should be pretty straighforward from the livecd. depends on the "other things". With care (since your home dir is on a seperate partition), installing fresh and keeping home is doable.04:48

Flanneldeathnight114: No, wubi does no formatting or partitioning, it creates an Ubuntu install as a file on your windows system (two files, actually, I believe)05:04

sebsebseb!terminal | Craig`05:14
ubottuCraig`: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome) or K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE).  Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal05:14
sebsebsebCraig`: Basic commands and such in Ubuntu Manual, and theres also Ubuntu Pocket Guide which you can download or I think buy in book form even05:14

thune3wrekt: not unless you are "chroot"ed into your hdd filesystem. If possible you could download ".deb"s and save them for installing when you boot hdd.05:19
ubuseris there a way to download svn repos to desktop05:19
aloonanyone ever have the problem in Lucid where you fn F-key to a virtual terminal and the screen is blank ? I can't seem to fix that even by doing everything in the write-ups to fix plymouth resolution etc05:19

terrylmAny help with grub?06:01
sebsebseb!grub2 | terrylm06:02
ubottuterrylm: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since Ubuntu 9.10.  For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub206:02
sebsebsebterrylm: I think what it is saying is it can't find your partition for Ubuntu, or use it at least06:02
safetynetgreezmunkey: I see after running shell toward the end of command return it says - ( LISTEN 2075/cupsd ) But not sure what I'm look'n at here - can you explain abit ?06:02
sebsebsebterrylm: no /  and no Ubuntu06:02
wrektthis is my fstab. http://paste.ubuntu.com/468722/ is there anything to indicate why im having such problems after upgrading?06:03
terrylmThanks all06:03
sebsebsebterrylm: either that or the kernel can't be used properly, hence kernel panic06:03
greezmunkeysafetynet: it means it is running, point your browser to "localhost:631" (sans quotes) see what happens06:03
sebsebsebterrylm: it is a fresh install or?06:03

sebsebsebterrylm: so which Grub you got on there?06:07
sebsebseb!grub | terrylm06:07
ubottuterrylm: grub is the default boot manager for Ubuntu releases before Karmic (9.10). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto - See !grub2 for Karmic onwards.06:07
Dr_WillisYou can share your dial up connection with other pc's on the lan. Yes. :0 did that years and years ago06:07
greezmunkeyslinkeey: what exactly are you trying to accomplish?06:07
slinkeeyso that I can can get around a vpn problem where my assigned ip address is the same as my office network06:07
bastidrazorDr_Willis: 4KB/s is not much bandwidth to be sharing :\06:07
slinkeeyno not share a connection06:07
terrylmI had to edit the root= entry for 9.04 kernel and it booted right up and here I am...06:07
Dr_Willisbastidrazor:  a few years back.. it was all we had. :)06:07
slinkeeyI tether off my blackberry and I am getting 10.20.x.x as the assigned ip06:07
sebsebsebterrylm: why dual booting 9.04 and 10.04?  since the problem with Grub ?06:08
slinkeeywell my office just so happens to use 10.20.x.x as the internal network06:08
=== Kaie is now known as Guest8132
terrylmjust like to know 10.04 work and migrate some things over before blowing 9.04 away.  like to have options.06:08
SaryHello Ubuntu ;)06:09
wrektanyone recognize this error: mountall: fsck /home [2818] terminated with status 8. mountall unrecoverable fsck error: /home06:09
slinkeeyso I was hoping to trick my notebook intot hinking it is on 192.168 network so it route 10.x.x.x through the vpn when connected06:09
sebsebsebterrylm: really the older Grub is better for most of us,  the one that 9.04 uses for example, but 10.04 nope.  In fact quite a few distros are still using Grub by default, rather than Grub 2, even Fedora which is interesting, since Fedora is more cutting edge than Ubuntu, gets most stuff first.06:09
CerebroJDWhen I boot up Lucid, I dont have a splash screen even when using 'quiet' and 'splash' in menu.lst, it displash for about 2 seconds after displaying "Starting up" in the top-left corner for 20 seconds, the goes to the logon screen.  Any thoughts?06:09
sebsebsebterrylm: personally I prefer 9.04 over 10.04, for various reasons, and 9.04 is still good to use untill  the end of October, when support runs out06:10
terrylmok06:10
wrektall this talk about 9.04 is making me want to cry06:10

safetynetgreezmunkey: Hey thanks for all you're help on the printer - not sure why it flaked out - but things happen - Could you possibly help with one other little issue ?06:11
sebsebsebwrekt: same here, when I upgraded the other computer to 9.10, well actsauly the hard disk got compeltly re done what was on it, and I thought, ok i'll do 9.10 then, only like three months untill 10.04, but then 10.04 realy did let me down06:11
greezmunkeyslinkeey: hmm, you are getting an address on your BB that is in the same network as you company lan? That doesn't sound right.06:11
bp0can different disk use a different scheduler?06:12
slinkeeyWhy not greeze?06:12
sebsebsebterrylm: wrekt Newer is not always better! Yeah06:12
slinkeeygreezmunkey, why not? they both use the 10.x for the internal network06:12

RealEyeswin7 and Ubuntu06:13
slinkeeygreezmunkey, not the same physical network... just the same scheme.. many private nets are 10.x.x.x/806:13

RealEyesi got it nvm06:14

safetynetgreezmunkey: I need to reset my Panel I believe it's corrupt because when I run an app it does not show down in the toolbar - I know there is a shell command to reset the Panel or Toolbar but can't remember what it is - ? ?06:14
terrylmuntill the end and it said it could not find a list of partitions...06:14
Dr_Willisrealslix_:  if you want to reinstall ubuntu over the existing install.  You just use teh custom partitioning feature of the installer and tell it where to put / and so forth. (over the existing partitions)06:14
claygDr_Willis, I'll give it a shot.06:14
RealEyesBRB06:14
sebsebsebterrylm: Do you know that 10.04 uses a completly different version of Grub than what 9.04 uses?  9.04 is the old Grub,  10.04 is Grub 206:14
terrylmso now I'm not sure if grub is working at all, half afraid to reboot ...06:15
wrektis it crazy/stupid/extreme to reinstall 9.04 into the partition the OS is in?06:15

sebsebsebterrylm: What boots up?  Also do you know which Grub is being used?06:15
safetynet!panel06:15
terrylmWell, by editing the root= at the grub menu I can or could boot 9.04. not sure now.06:16

safetynetxangua: Thanks06:16
greezmunkeyslinkeey: I don't think spoofing the network at your end will help, the vpn is terminated at both ends, and associated routing entries are in place. The routing at your corp office would not know how to get to your spoofed net, so you would not get a reply to packets even if you could get them there.06:17

slinkeeyok06:20
slinkeeygreezmunkey, or I can ask att if 10.x is there only internal ip's that they assign..06:21
slinkeeymaybe they will also go 192.168 at request06:22
slinkeeynever know.. I doubt it though..06:22
greezmunkeyslinkeey: now you're on it! :) make them fix their network!06:22
greezmunkeyslinkeey: I mean really, they probably sould have a guest subnet or something you can get to.06:22

kschwangfelderso I am trying to install ubuntu to dual boot with windows xp home edition. my mother board is asus k8v se Deluxe.  The only way I could get windows xp to see the hard disk for install was to have it set up as RAID.  now, however, ubuntu install cannot see the disk.  any ideas on what I can try to get this going??06:32
kschwangfelderthe hard disk is sata, btw06:32
Dr_WillisYou have a single hard disk set up as a raid?06:32
kschwangfelderit was the only way windows xp would see it06:33
kschwangfelderprobably partially due to my lack of expertise06:33
NanoDanokschwangfelder: Windows only recognizes NTFS partitions and ubuntu usually uses ext3, so if you have 1 hard disk it should be partitioned into separate parts one for windows one for linux06:33
kschwangfelderNanoDano: right now it has two partitions; one with the xp that I installed and the other is unformatted.  how do I format it for ubuntu to see if the installer cannot see it?06:34
NanoDanokschwangfelder, it doesn't see ANY partitions? Does it at least see the one that has windows on it?06:35
kschwangfelderNanoDano: no, it does not even recognize there is a hard disk there.  it sees other things though, a usb stick, an external harddrive...06:36
NanoDanokschwangelder, I'm really not familiar with RAID or how that affects the installer. If you can boot into the LIVE mode off a CD you can try using the fdisk tool, but if you're not familiar with it either I wouldn't recommend06:38

PureSine hi I have downloaded latest version of Virtual Box and Ubuntu and installed an ubuntu VM on my Windows 7 machine, also I have a Windows XP VM machine. the problem is ubuntu VM causes the whole system(Windows 7) to crash. I know it is related to VM because I had no such problem before installing the VM. Also I should say sometimes the system had worked for about half a day without crash but usually it causes the system to crash under 1 hour. The06:42

PureSine<PureSine> ue that I have is that when I boot  ubuntu VM it gives a message "piix4-smbus 0000:00:07.0:SMBus bus address uninitialized - upgrade bios or use force_addr = 0xadrr"  . this message appears at boot time and before ubuntu logo appears. interesting thing is Windows XP VM does not show such message.

dadewere you able to see my post?06:56
thune3 dade: if you don't autoremove them, they should stay just fine. no?06:56
Jordan_UNoPart: I personally doubt that formatting will help anything. The only reason I can think of that it would is if your drive has old data on it that looks like the installer to be metadata for FakeRAID. If the installer sees a drive using FakeRAID that it doesn't understand it ignores it, because writing anything to such a drive could cause you to need to rebuld the RAID array.06:56
dadehow do i get apt-get to stop auto removing?06:57
dadeor06:57
NoPartJordan_U, okay, what are my options?06:57
dadehow do i flag it as required?06:57
Jordan_UNoPart: I don't think that you're using FakeRAID, but the most common cause of a disk not showing up in Ubuntu's installer (when visable in other utilities on the LiveCD) is the installer incorrectly thinking it's FakeRAID.06:57
NoPartJordan_U, is there a known fix for this problem?06:58
NanoDanodade, i didn't see anything about it being removed, i just saw a note saying you dont need it and you can remove it06:58
Jordan_UNoPart: Reboot the LiveCD and press any key during the first few seconds of booting and you'll get extra boot options. Press F6 and select "No dmraid".06:58
NoPartokay thanks!06:59
Jordan_UNoPart: You're welcome, I hope that option helps :)06:59

abhijitramesh, best web site is your laptop company's website or call center they will tell you about it. also each laptop model have its own maintainance document which you can get from company. in that all details are there07:05
Jordan_Udade: Yes, aptitude also has a pseudo GUI (ncurses) interface option and other features. Debian's official policy is to recommend aptitude, Ubuntu's general policy is to use apt-get, and in all honesty in most cases either will work just fine.07:05

Archana_ykaya, If no one is answering here, you may try ubuntuforums.org Good luck.08:13
kschwangfelderhi everybody.  based on some earlier advice from NanoDano, I booted the ubuntu 10.4 LiveCD to see if the disk tool could detect my SATA hard drive which the installer refuses to recognize.  the disk tool does see the hard drive and allowed me to create appropriate partitions.  however, when I run the installer, it still only sees a usb stick and external usb drive.  any thoughts on a next possible step?08:13
Archana_kschwangfelder, I too had such problem at my friends. I tried every other trick found on the sites. No use. Maybe you could try wubi... :(08:14

Flannelkschwangfelder: Check your BIOS settings to make sure you don't have some RAID type stuff going on, also check to make sure your MoBo supports the HDD, you may need to set jumpers to force the drive down to slower speeds/protocols if that's the case08:16
ykayaArchana_, thanks a lot.08:16

tr33m4nalso to update chromium I added the repositories found in Ubuntu Tweak09:38
Wintermute_What are updates that are not security updates?09:39
tr33m4nI get the daily builds09:39
CheeryWintermute_: they are other updates09:39
CheeryWintermute_: simple eh?09:39
CheeryWintermute_: it ought read somewhere unless that feature is broken.09:39
hspaansWintermute_: little bugfixes that needed to be fixed due to broken functionality or experience09:39
Wintermute_Cheery: Ahhh09:40
AVkrakklehow can i tell my soundcard what drivers to use?  every site i go to says system>preferences>sound but I'm not seeing any options for ALSA09:40
Wintermute_Cheery: Ok. But it don't change version of the package itself correct?09:40
professor_Gxibalba,  no moastley by controlling thir computer (moving the mouse .etc)09:40
Wintermute_Cheery: Like, ubuntu 10.04 will use php 5.3 forever correct?09:40
CheeryWintermute_: depends.09:41
tr33m4nWintermute: you can downgrade to 5.2, I had to do that for a successful Drupal installation09:41
Wintermute_Cheery: on what?09:41
Cheerythere's minor updates and then there's major updates09:41
Cheerymajor updates break backwards compatibility at least partially09:41

RealEyesdo you guys know how to get 'sensors' on your panel?09:41

Wintermute_Cheery: Ok, but major upgrades are only from major version changes (like from 09.10 to 10.04)09:42
hspaansussa: it support microsoft messanger / communicator09:42
Wintermute_correct?09:42
CheeryWintermute_: minor updates fix little things that are just unspecced or wrong behavior.09:42
livo1hello09:43
Wintermute_Cheery: But it should not change the version of the software it self...09:43
tFFRealEyes, what kinda sesors? cpu, mem, network, disk - just add system monitor applet09:43
RealEyescpu09:43
Wintermute_Cheery: Lets say that my app works with apache2.209:43
CheeryWintermute_: it does. That's really important anyway.09:43
sunk8hspaans, I'm back. No go.09:43
RealEyestFF: thats not the right one.09:44
sunk8hspaans, firewall is not an issue.09:44
tFFRealEyes, add system monitor applet to the panel09:44
CheerySay the user is having an old version of the software, that's going to be visible from version number if it gets updated whenever fixes arrive.09:44
Wintermute_Cheery: And then, one day... I just run a plain apt-get upgrade to apply security fixes and it change my apache to 2.3???09:44
Wintermute_Cheery: This is not the expected behaviour I guess...09:44
tFFRealEyes, and the choose sensors u want09:44
CheeryWintermute_: the major version number ought not change without user intervention, of course.09:44
tFFRealEyes, *then09:44
sunk8By the way a really weird thing happened... I can search through the google search bar through firefox. But I installed opera, so it's not a browser issue.09:45
sunk8hspaans, By the way a really weird thing happened... I can search through the google search bar through firefox. But I installed opera, so it's not a browser issue.09:45
Cheerythat's the case with python, (2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7 are all different packages)09:45
rumbertIn APT preferences, how can a package source such as Ubuntu release or 'security update' be preferred?09:45
tFFRealEyes, i assume u r in gnome09:45
Wintermute_Cheery: I think it should change to <same_distro_main_version_package>-ubuntu<revision> no?09:45
RealEyesyes i am09:45
Wintermute_Cheery: Ok... thanks! :) so no security update are actually functionality fixes :D09:46
Wintermute_Cheery: thanks!! :)09:46
good_fellow!09:46
CheeryWintermute_: that's the case. Though there are minor and major version numbers.09:46
Cheeryand the versioning is bit different on every program anyway.09:47
Wintermute_Cheery: I guess the minor can change, but it don't brake backward compatibility09:47
Cheerythough if features change during the run of version number, that version change should be major.09:47
RealEyeswhat is that terminal command to update restriced packages or something?09:47
Wintermute_Cheery: Good... Thanks!09:47
Algorithm_42hi09:48
Wintermute_Cheery: See ya09:48
CheeryThere's one exception though.09:48
Cheeryoh. he left already.09:48
arpad2after refresh rate change, screen goes black in 10.04, any suggestions what to do?09:48
Cheerywell, maybe he understands that if software update doesn't break backwards compatibility, it's discussable whether major version number change is required.09:48
RealEyesarpad2, someone just had that same problem...09:49
spungoarpad2: yeah, I suggest you leave the refresh rate as it was. *chortle*09:49

nobootrumbert, it gives a grub prompt at boot-up.. doesnt that mean grub is installed somewhere?10:01
tr33m4nnoboot: you may have to chroot into your installation from a live cd and issue update-grub10:01
hspaansrumbert: they need to be release names that are part of the repositories you're using and woody is not been part of the repo for a long time now10:01

livo1AVkrakkle: Oh, I am Chinese, and English is not good, where you can be certain of the exercises.10:22

AVkrakklelivo1: Ah.  Cool.10:23
caacoh, so the dump can be used after I reformatted my flash drive?10:23

sawsereqwaiceroot, i mean does it take longer to package 64bit programs/is it harder. should i expect the same programs available as easily.  will it be harder for me to compile stuff that isn't in the repos ?  say I need libxyz10:58
abhijitTomashe, sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop10:58
icerootsawsereqwa: its the same10:58
abhijitTomashe, sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop for kde10:58
HarrySiceroot: "normal upgrade"? I thought there are many different ways.10:58
icerootHarryS: do-release-upgrade10:59
iceroot!upgrade | HarryS10:59
ubottuHarryS: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade10:59
icerootHarryS: of course in a screen-session10:59
HarrySall right cool, thanks10:59
icerootTomashe: but why need a gui on the server-edition? why not using the normal ubuntu-installation?11:00
icerootbut that brings an interesting question, is ubuntu-desktop on 10.04 lts supported 5 years or 3 years?11:01
icerootserver-edition11:02
psycho_oreosI think all lts are supported for 5 years11:02
psycho_oreos!lts11:02
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)11:02
psycho_oreospartially correct there I am11:02
icerootpsycho_oreos: but server and desktop are using the same repos11:02
psycho_oreosiceroot, doesn't matter, its up to the policy makers, so servers are supported for 5 years on lts11:03
Slowmoveis there any programs for playing bluray discs on linux yet?11:03
icerootpsycho_oreos: but server comes without ubuntu-desktop11:03
icerootSlowmove: no (not drm protected ones, which are all you can  buy)11:04
psycho_oreosiceroot, you can always install the desktop later, just don't expect to gain 5 years worth of support using desktop packages with server backends11:04
sawsereqwaiceroot, thanks, i'll go ahead with 64 then11:04
vakhi all11:04
icerootpsycho_oreos: i know,  but i think you get the queestion wrong/cant answer the question11:05
abhijitsawsereqwa, i m using 64 bit lucid11:05
Slowmoveiceroot - is there any development in that area. Any projects aiming for playing those or is the DRM to hard to fix?11:05
HarrySIs the Ubuntu team considering switching the button sides in the next release, how it was prior to 10.04? I understand it's an easy config change, but why?11:05
icerootSlowmove: there are projects atm there is a project for normmal blu-ray11:05
psycho_oreosiceroot, then I don't understand what is your question. Yes server does not come with desktop as standard is only because its meant to be for computers to be dedicated and usually headless11:05
thyri0ni almost got used to the buttons on the left side11:06
thyri0n;)11:06
slidinghornHarryS, they have plans to keep them in their current spot (on the left) as they want to put "new stuff" in the right corner...not sure what though11:06
HarrySQ_Q That's crappy in my opinion.11:06
mitiora./msg NickServ identify meteor11:06
thyri0nwas quite a nice idea, I like it11:06
MatBoyare there still issues with flash and so on on 64bits versions ?11:06
icerootpsycho_oreos: the question is, what packages have 5 years support in lts, only the default packages which comes with the installation or all? if all, why desktop edition has only 3 years if they are using the same repos11:06
* MatBoy installed 32bit on his 64 bit lappy :S11:06
thyri0nmakes it bit more distinctive11:06
abhijit!identify | mitiora11:06
ubottumitiora: You can identify automatically by using your NickServ password as the server password in your IRC client. When identifying manually, do NOT send the command from a channel's tab, or a typo may give away your password. If that happened, type « /msg NickServ set password <new-password> » in the server tab as soon as possible.11:06
icerootMatBoy: there is no amd64 flash anymore11:07
thyri0nhi slidinghorn by the way :)11:07
WaltzingAlongiceroot: packages for lucid11:07
MatBoyiceroot: that sucks ?11:07
slidinghornhey thyri0n11:07
psycho_oreosiceroot, whatever packages native to server, so whatever that came on server as standard will most likely have 5 years support11:07
icerootpsycho_oreos: so no ubuntu-desktop11:07
HarrySI think it looks stupid, users might click the X while chosing the file menu, and it also discourages Windows users to use Ubuntu now (most people don't want huge change)11:07
thyri0ngot back to Ubuntu 10.04 after some serious distro hopping11:07
abhijitMatBoy, switch to 64 bit11:07
MatBoyabhijit: yeah I need to, my laptop is slow of you ask me11:07
MatBoywith 32 bits11:08
psycho_oreosiceroot, yes because ubuntu-desktop requires xorg and other things and that isn't standard part of server release11:08
thyri0nHarryS: from a usability point of view it's possibly stupid11:08
abhijitMatBoy, hmm11:08
thyri0nmac users will like it though11:08
thyri0n:D11:08
garryhow to install gnome shell in ubnntu 10.0411:08
icerootpsycho_oreos: but what about packages which dont have a gui and does not come by default (e.g. vim)11:08
aeon-ltdMatBoy: what spec is your laptop anyway?11:08
psycho_oreosiceroot, they most likely fall under desktop but I wouldn't know11:08
aeon-ltdgarry: you mean gnome-terminal, just go to synaptics or use apt11:08
MatBoyaeon-ltd: lenovo t61 with a T7100 and 2GB11:09
aeon-ltdMatBoy: clock speed?11:09
HarrySWho cares about Mac users? The majority of computer users (and those switching to Ubuntu) use(d) Windows.11:09
abhijitmitiora if that was your password then chage it immidiatly11:09
MatBoyaeon-ltd: 2x 1,8Ghz11:09
thyri0nHarryS: absolutely right there11:09
aeon-ltdHarryS: yeah true, market share for macs are low, i could probably see iOS users take over full OSX users ina bout 5 years11:09
ikoniaMatBoy: that laptop will have no issues with flash11:09
Tomasheafter i installed the gui how do i witch to it? i user putty to remove control the server11:09
ikoniaMatBoy: if you install the flashplugin-nonfree package from the package manager you will get flash11:10
abhijitTomashe, it will automatically login to gui11:10
MatBoyikonia: no, but it's slow overal... I mean... I think I need 64bits for a more stable system... as I have on my other systems too11:10
ikoniaMatBoy: you think wrong11:10
ikoniaMatBoy: you won't notice any visual difference in general usage between 32/64bit11:10
MatBoyikonia: 32bits on 64bits HW is not always stable and fast11:10
ikoniaMatBoy: yes it is11:10
icerootwas there a develop-channel on freenode for ubuntu?11:10
MatBoyiceroot: ubuntu+111:11
Tomasheit's not11:11
ikoniaMatBoy: the only time it's a problem is if you exceed 4GB of ram, and use the PAE kernel11:11
icerootMatBoy: that is beta-channel11:11
ikoniairk: #ubuntu-devel11:11
MatBoyoh indeed :)11:11
ikoniaoops11:11
icerootikonia: thx11:11
ikoniaiceroot: #ubuntu-devel11:11
aeon-ltdMatBoy: full 64bits performance will not actually be achieved until a few years, when there is a coding overhaul.11:11
aeon-ltdMatBoy: the problem most likely lies in the software your using11:11
aeon-ltd*not the OS, yes i know its software aswell11:11
MatBoyaeon-ltd: yeah true, but I run it on my desktop for a long time and it's more stable I get the feeling11:12
ikoniaMatBoy: are you experiencing visual slow performance, or processing slow performance11:12
MatBoyand why should I go to 64 bits anyway than, if mem is the only issue11:12
ikoniaMatBoy: don't got to 64bit then11:12
vakUbuntu was installed as guest OS un VMWare running under Mac OS X. Now I try to play the this Ubuntu-guest image under VMWare that runs also in Ubuntu and... no networking :( I hope I should just change some things in my Ubuntu-guest OS?11:12
MatBoyikonia: slow performance, ok my disk is encrypted but even than... a lot of CPU usage for nothing and so on11:12
ikoniaMatBoy: is performance visually slow, or cpu/processing slow11:13
aeon-ltdMatBoy: my advice, as ubuntu grows stay away from stock configs, e.g. gnome + compiz unless your gpu can handle it11:13
PeterNLMatBoy: what process is using the cpu?11:13
NeverGonehello11:13
caacanyone familiar with TestDisk?11:13
iceroot!anyone | caac11:13
MatBoyikonia: both11:13
ubottucaac: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?11:13
caacdude I asked my question11:13
ikoniaMatBoy: ok, visually slow is a good chance xorg is miss-configured, that's a common issue,11:13
MatBoyaeon-ltd: even compiz runs smooth on my eeepc :)11:13
ikoniaMatBoy: processing slow, lets look at what's hogging th eresource11:14
icerootcaac: maybe but we dont scroll the channel to see if someone asked a real question11:14
ikoniaMatBoy: yes, but that may have a supported/correctly configured card11:14
PeterNL(I don't have problems with gnome+compiz. I like it and it's fast. 2*2,1 GHz + 4Gram + HD4570 @ 9.10 32bit pae)11:14
caacwtf?11:14
garryhow to install gnome shell11:14
tukadafoondayHey people, i am new to linux, I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 and when it was installing the update my computer locked up, anywho, now it hangs on the bootup and says the following (Process:407) Glib-warning**getpwuid_r() failed due to unknown user id (0) any help would be great - thanks in advanced11:14
ikoniawhy are you all referencing your system spec to compiz ?11:14
aeon-ltdMatBoy: i wouldn't run compiz unless it was useful in some way11:14
ikoniaMatBoy: what video card is in the problem machine ?11:14
MatBoyPeterNL: depends on, I was bittorenting, and what version I use... it defuncts and cannot be killed using the pid, and that is with more programs... I have the idea that encryption is not that fast but people say you should not notice it11:14
Tomashehmm looks like i need vnc11:15
Tomasheanyone could help me with that11:15
Tomashe?11:15
MatBoyaeon-ltd: I use it a lot11:15
garrygnome shell on ubuntu how can i install it11:15
ikoniagarry: search for the package in the ubuntu repos11:15
aeon-ltdgarry: you mean gnome-terminal, just go to synaptics or use apt11:15
ikoniagarry: then mark it for install11:15
ikoniagnome shell is a gnome 3 feature11:15
PeterNLtorrents *can* use a lot of cpu. Is that all?11:15
MatBoyikonia: 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)11:16
ikoniaMatBoy: ok, so that should be a supported but low powered device11:16
aeon-ltdPeterNL: torrents genreally hover over aroun 2-4% of cpu11:16
MatBoyPeterNL: but 100% all the time ?11:16
garrywhere i search the in ubuntu repos11:16
ikoniaMatBoy: you need to make sure your xorg ocnfig is using the "intel" driver11:16
ikoniagarry: gnome 3 is not released yet11:16
caacso.. anyone familiar with testdisk?11:16
garryand other gnome shell can i download11:16
tukadafoondayI don't mean to be pushy, but can anyone help with my problem?11:17
PeterNLOn my P3 600MHZ I have had over 90% when calculating the hashes of a few gigabytes of torrent. I don't know what that would be on a modern cpu...11:17
Tomasheguys how do i install a vnc client ?11:17
MatBoyhe damn, is xorg.conf not used anymore... ?11:17
MatBoythis was changed I thought11:17
ikoniaTomashe: there are plenty in the ubuntu repos, open the pacakge manager and search11:17
garryikonia i need to install any version of gnome shell11:17
aeon-ltdPeterNL: what client?11:17
PeterNLMatBoy: depends on what drivers you use11:17
ikoniagarry: it's not available until gnome-311:17
BenkinoobyTomashe: get a console and type sudo aptitude install vlc11:17
Tomasheserver sorry11:17
PeterNLaeon-ltd: transmission (headless)11:18
MatBoyPeterNL: just a default 10.04 install11:18
ikoniaMatBoy: xorg is used if you hardcode it, if there are parameters (file empty) that are empty, gnome trys to work them out11:18
aeon-ltdPeterNL: but was it gui?11:18
ikoniaMatBoy: so it's dynamic unless you use xorg.conf to hard code your options11:18
Tomashepl dpw11:18
PeterNLMatBoy: Oh, you have intel grapics, so you don't use xorg.conf anymore11:18
MatBoyikonia: I always did it like that :) xorg.conf rules :D11:18
TomasheBenkinooby: whats now11:18
ikoniaMatBoy: ok, so hardcode the intel driver and see if that makes a positive differnce11:19
tukadafoondayHey people, i am new to linux, I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 and when it was installing the update my computer locked up, anywho, now it hangs on the bootup and says the following (Process:407) Glib-warning**getpwuid_r() failed due to unknown user id (0) any help would be great - thanks in advanced11:19
PeterNLMatBoy: the closed ATi and nVidia drivers still use xorg.conf...11:19
MatBoyPeterNL: ah, mhh... I mostly have 2x Nvidia in my PC for my multiple monitors :)11:19
magicianlordyo11:19
ikoniaMatBoy: some intel cards default to the i810 driver which doesn't work as well as the intel11:19
MatBoyyeah but ATI is a big issue on Linux, never like(d) it11:19
garryikonia so cann't install it11:19

MatBoyah nice, someon is in here as root :D11:19

sobersabreI have ubuntu machine, and it has a file /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.firefox12:55
quiescensi'm still using 2.6.31, which occasionally fails suspend, 2.6.32 frequently breaks usb and/or video acceleration requiring a restart to fix, and 2.6.34 causes X to completely die resulting in loss of any work in progress12:55
sobersabreinside that file there are these settings:12:55
troubledbazhang: thats fine, but any idea what might update in the config files that might have tweaked their configs that might break suspend by even just trying maverick?12:55
quiescensso for the timebeing, 2.6.31 is still the.. least annoying of 3 evils12:55
moshisushihello! i'm trying to follow this guide: http://shifteightgeneration.com/content/wdtler-fix-tler-setting-wd-desktop-hard-drives, but now i need to make a bootable usb stick instead of burning the image to a CD12:55
moshisushibecause my server has no CD drive12:55
bazhangtroubled, no idea about maverick kernels and current releases, sorry12:55
troubledjrib: thats what I am thinking. but its either that or the last update to the system from proposed. just here checking if anyone else might have noticed it12:55
moshisushihow do i do that in ubuntu?12:55
bazhangmoshisushi, unetbootin12:56
bazhangmoshisushi, assuming it is a linux iso12:56
=== root is now known as Guest79166
troubleda look at the syslog though seems to show like the system, upon powerup, starts logging as if its finishing shutting down for a suspend, then it locks up and I get the beeps12:56
moshisushibazhang: nah it's not a linux iso really12:57
bazhangmoshisushi, what iso12:57
Guest79166kk12:57
troubledbazhang: got a system you can suspend real fast? :)12:57
moshisushibazhang: not sure what it really is.. it's a CD for fixing Western Digital drives12:57
bazhangtroubled, works fine for me12:57
moshisushibazhang: it's FreeDOS or something12:58
Guest79166do any one here know hacking?12:58
troubledbazhang: nice to know its an isolated problem. thanks :)12:58
bazhangmoshisushi, no idea if unetbootin can handle that.12:58
sobersabreanyway, how do I disable this apparmor setting?12:58
bazhangGuest79166, kernel hacking?12:58
Guest79166no web site hacking?12:59
jribtroubled: what was your reasoning for testing the kernel?12:59
bazhangGuest79166, no, dont ask here12:59

lxsysilovefairuz: i'm just going to type it cant be bothered to get stupid usb to work, shouldn't take 20 minutes :(12:59
=== zz_severity1 is now known as severity1
ilovefairuzmoshisushi: i haven't to make freedos boot of usb for a similar thing but it failed to boot though I didn't pursue it much, try asking in #freedos12:59
troubledjrib: I was asked by a dev in a bug report12:59
jribtroubled: right, but regarding what?12:59
ilovefairuzKunin:  still looking12:59
ilovefairuzlxsys: right-click and format is not working ?13:00
troubledjrib: a dvd problem. seems the latest kernel is fine with it13:00
troubledwell, dvd drive13:00
jribtroubled: ok, just figured maybe it was related13:00
ilovefairuzmoshisushi: haven't been able *13:00
lxsysilovefairuz: yes it is, but teh other laptop keeps throwing up permission denied13:01
troubledjrib: nah. but as I was saying, this only happened the last 2 days, and the only thing that happened since was the .35 test and a package update13:01
moshisushiilovefairuz: however it's not really freedos....13:01
jribtroubled: do you know what packages were updated?13:01
moshisushii mean.. FreeDOS is ON tehre13:01
Kuninilovefairuz well... apparently some keys are working, kill X did13:01
moshisushibut you boot the CD, THEN you select FreeDOS13:01
ilovefairuzlxsys: mount it and copy using, sudo cp /path/to/file  /media/disk/13:01
moshisushiso i guess it's just some kind of bootable CD13:01
troubledjrib: not off hand. was some stuff from proposed and some stuff from security. i'd have to go through the logs13:02
lxsysilovefairuz: tried that, won't work. also made a file on the usb from working laptop and it was ok, edited it on other laptop and it wasn't happy.13:02
ilovefairuzmoshisushi: yes it is, the disk utility runs on freedos13:02
jribtroubled: hmm, proposed isn't really meant to be used as a an "always-on" repository13:02
troubledjrib: ya, might just be the first time ive been bitten by having it on. i don't want to disable it now though in case I start getting missing dependancy issues13:03
jribtroubled: you won't get missing dependency issues13:03
lxsysilovefairuz: nevermind, somehow smacking the laptop in rage got the damn card to work... must be loose connection13:04

ubottumoshisushi: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)13:04
troubledjrib: even if I remove something that was updated to a higher version than is stock and they depend on stuff that was from proposed or pulled in from it?13:04
Kuninilovefairuz and a new error when X restarted: could not updates ICEauthority file /var/lib/gdm/.ICEauthority13:04
moshisushiilovefairuz: sure :>13:04
quiescenspercussive maintenance13:04
ilovefairuzmoshisushi: what you are referring to is just the bootloader, the actual OS is freedos13:05
jribtroubled: you're removing things, dependencies aren't required to remove something and apt would tell you if other things depend on it13:05
troubledjrib: well, guess ill disable it than, thanks13:05
moshisushiilovefairuz: so getting the image on there with UNetbootin set to FreeDOS is worth a try?13:06
moshisushiilovefairuz: well, that's what i'm doing now anyway13:06
ilovefairuzmoshisushi: i don't think it would, but try it13:06
ilovefairuzKunin: sudo chown -R gdm /var/lib/gdm13:07
Kuninilovefairuz was about to do that, just looking to see what it was now... user landscape and group admin... no idea what either of those are13:08
Kuninilovefairuz and the original problem still exists13:09
ilovefairuzmoshisushi: http://wiki.fdos.org/Installation/BootDiskCreateUSB has instructions for ubuntu13:09
ilovefairuzKunin: the keyboard/mouse are not working even after restarting X?13:09
Kuninilovefairuz correct, still not working13:10
ilovefairuzKunin: there could be a memory corruption somewhere, try rebooting?13:10
Kuninilovefairuz BUT, they do work through synergy, so the keystrokes and such are being registered somewhere13:10
Kuninilovefairuz IE, I can move my mouse onto this computer, and using the mouse/keyboard from my main type this message13:11
wh1sk3yj4ckhow do I run a cli command so that it doesn't go into .bash_history?13:11
Kuninilovefairuz or, more odd... keyboard works (on both systems), but mouse still does not work (on either)13:12
llutzwh1sk3yj4ck: start the line with a space13:12
ilovefairuzKunin: pkill synergys and start it again13:12
wh1sk3yj4ckllutz, cheers mate13:12
Kuninilovefairuz no apparent change13:15
ilovefairuzKunin: more than one synergys could be running, try killall -KILL synergys, and restart X13:16
Kuninilovefairuz unless they can hide from ps -e I doubt it, but ok13:17

I don't know much about ssh, but I have been asked if I have "enabled port forwarding in my client", but I am using bash, so that should be alright, yes?13:56
Random832second: technically even if you do that and even if it _tells_ you everything's locked down, there could be a hole it's been programmed not to tell you about13:56
secondllutz: you don't know these people, they would really really f that machine up if they tried to do a fresh install13:56
llutzRandom832: speculation, you cannot be sure. so reinstall is the only way to get a known state13:56
secondRandom832: I'll have to do the best I can13:57
secondat least until I go visit them13:57
Random832how would they "f it up" (also language)13:57
secondRandom832: >_> you don't know them, trust me on this one13:57

oCean_XimDev: use lshw14:12
ikoniaXimDev: your hard disk vendor may have tools, but it's doubtful14:12
ilovefairuzUtrinqueparatus: check cables, or try formatting the disk, if neither worked it's a hardware issue14:12
llutzXimDev: hdparm -I /dev/sdX14:13

GupGuys, I'm trying to track down a memory leak... any good tools about? It would be cool to plot the mem usage of the individual process from ps on a graph over time or something?14:23
GupI've tried comparing screen shots of top or activity monitor throughout the week, but everything just seems to be slowly increasing!14:23
padhutroubled:  ^^^14:23
spikypadhu: gufw works well14:23
troubledpadhu: shorewall? its a bunch of config files in /etc/shorewall that you "fill in the blanks"14:23
ubuntu-usrfroschi, thx. i wonder is port forwarding here is unnecessary14:23
ikoniaGup: what do you think is leaking ?14:23
troubledpadhu: shorewall is more of a rather advanced firewall though14:23
Gupikonia, thats the problem, i have no idea!14:24
padhutroubled: give me an link for learn it14:24
ikoniaGup: why do you think something is leaking then ?14:24
troubledpadhu: http://sohrewall.net/14:24

troubledpadhu: iirc, ubuntu ships with 4.2, so pick the docs accordingly when on that site14:25
AloneWolfCROHeloo! I have a q? How that i remove nautilus elementary?14:25
padhuSure, troubled. Thank you14:26
ubuntu-usrfroschi, where rsync daemon should be run? on ssh server or on my mobile?14:26
ikoniaAloneWolfCRO: open the package manager, search for the package, click remove14:26
troubledpadhu: also, to have a better shorewall experience, I removed/disabled the package for the default ubuntu network that gives each user the option for specifying the networking info. I forget the package name though. basically, I reverted back to a "traditional" networking environment where the eth is brought up during start and stays up14:26
padhutroubled: oh14:27
AloneWolfCROok i will try14:27
angelitusssHi everyone! I wonder if any has solved the flickering screen issue? I'm having that problem with ATI radeon 1200x and Intel based video cards.14:28
troubledpadhu: also, you probably want shorewall-perl instead of plain shorewall, that installs a perl version of the compiler instead of a bash/sh based compiler. there are limits that probably will affect both, but perl tends to be the more powerful one14:28
Jecanybody use ibus ?14:28
troubledpadhu: an example: the shell shorewall can do firewalling on a bridge, but the perl version cant yet. (not likely to affect you). Where as the perl version can auto detect broadcast address of an interface but the shell version cant, etc.14:29
ikoniaJec: just ask your question14:29
AloneWolfCROikonia: i can't see nautilus elementary on synaptic :S14:29
padhutroubled: that's good idea. any GUI tar ball?14:29
ikoniaAloneWolfCRO: there doesn't appear to be a  nautilus elementary package in the ubuntu repos14:30
ikoniaAloneWolfCRO: how did you install it ?14:30
troubledpadhu: as for the package to remove, do you know that little applet ubuntu gives you to control networking? remove that package. As for GUI, no, its just "always on" so to speak. just apt-get install shorewall-perl shorewall-doc, and you should be good to go. Its safe to install too as it wont run until you enabled it in /etc/default/shorewall14:31
AloneWolfCROi thik via ubuntu tweak14:31
ikoniaAloneWolfCRO: then we don't support it here14:31
AloneWolfCROI know :S14:31
ikoniaAloneWolfCRO: then why are you asking ?14:31
AloneWolfCROi just thing that you will still help me14:32
ikoniaAloneWolfCRO: I have no idea how ubuntu-tweak installs packages for you, you'll need to speak to the ubuntu-tweak people to find out how it installs14:32

Gupikonia, i have to reboot once every few weeks, when i do mem usage is about 20% with loads of free or cached, but used slowly creeps up until its left no room for cached, things start to swap and everything grinds to a halt, here's my munin memory graph http://imagebin.ca/view/wuyxlS.html14:32

froschiubuntu-usr: if you can login from putty, you don't need port forwarding in your setup. then you don't need it for filetransfer either. rsync daemon *if* you need it should be run on server. but you shouldn't need it for basic usage (only for advanced user managment or so)14:33
ikoniaGup: simplest thing to do is, boot your box, leave it running with nothing additional open, see how that responds, that will rule out generic services/applications14:33

Gupikonia, could be a bit inconvenient.. it runs all sorts of stuff like mail server and backup stuff i wouldnt want to be down for any period of time, not to mention i need to use it to work on!14:36

DarsVaedamy router works, i'm writing from my notebook now14:39
ubuntu-usroaf, i'll download it soon14:39
troubledpadhu: if you get stuck and firewall yourself offline, just remember to do "shorewall clear" in a shell as root. that will open your firewall up so to speak. "shorewall stop" actually blocks everything in or out14:39
froschiubuntu-usr: mmhh... about rsync and port forwarding i take everything i said back. according to the docs, it's kinda confused, and for some reason you seem to need the daemon...14:39
