phillwhi tenach I've suggested he use http://forum.phillw.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=35 and replace linux-kernel with plymouth. I'm not guaranteeing it will work, however.00:46
tenachphillw, you already suggested that to him?00:46
phillwhge's on #lubuntu with me now.00:47
tenachAh, okay.00:47
phillwand said he'd been in here, so I thought I'd pop by and tell you what I've just suggested he do.00:47
tenachThank you phillw00:47
phillwI'm still not saying it will work, but in theory it should :-)00:48
phillwwe will know in a while :-)00:48
* tenach nods00:49
phillw"Obviously when you remove core packages that other important packages depend on, it makes a mess of the system."  (Not my words, just from a thread on the forum regarding ripping plymouth out, amongst other things it also takes mountall with it etc :-\00:50
phillwStill. that thread i sent him to, does seem quite popular and no-one has sued me yet :-D00:50
phillwbut, never been used for plymouth... until now00:51

sunny_i have ubuntu 9.04 and after update i have no sound im new on linux so im not sure what im doing but i tried alot of forums and there soliutions but still nothing, help please01:02
zkriesseOk it's probably due to updating01:03

iceflatlinegood ($localtime) y'all01:09
phillwsunny_: did you upgrade 9.04, or are you still using 9.04 and just did an update of your system ?01:09
phillwhi iceflatline01:10
iceflatlineany recommendations for a good low-level disk benchmarking tool?01:11
sunny_i just updated system im still on 9.04 i dont like 9.1001:12
phillwtenach: As they say, you learn something new everyday ... Plymouth is an application that runs very early in the boot process (even before the root filesystem is mounted!) - Now, that's scary !!!01:13
tenachYeah, I knew it was something of that sort.. I knew enough to know that not having it was bad.01:13
sunny_my sound chip is snd_intel8x0 i have 6 jacks on integrated audio device01:13
zkriessesunny_: you know that there is a new version now right?01:14
phillwiceflatline: I usually just look for comaprisons on the web, as people love testing drive speeds, however, http://www.linuxinsight.com/how_fast_is_your_disk.html may be the sort of thing you're looking for ?01:16
sunny_ubuntu 9.10?01:16
phillwsunny there is an LTS release out, 10.0401:17
sunny_oh yeah right i know that :D01:17
phillwbut you cannot easily migrate 9.04 --> 10.0401:17
iceflatlinephillw: thanks.01:18
phillwwell, I gues what you call easy. It certainly can be done as I did it01:18
sunny_but that version is slow and cant get my video drivers work so resoliution is really pure01:18
sunny_i had 10.04 its purple screen :D but something was wrong with it i was reading articles that 9.04 is better in somekind of way01:19
phillwsunny_: you may just have needed to use nomodeset, the default is okay for most, but for some it needs altering. 10.04 has better support for more hardware.01:20
phillwbut, that is just my honest opinion.01:20
sunny_i kind like this one but if there is no other way so ill try to go on 10.04 then :D01:22
tenachI had the same reservations but have come to really enjoy 10.0401:23
sunny_so no way to make audio on 9.04?01:25
phillwsunny_: there are few possibilities01:26
sunny_i think my drivers are ok just i need to change jacks on linux itself i think couz on windows all i need is change on realtek, i can see on mixer that sound bars are moving i think thats good but still no sound i was on one of forums that said i need to change it somehow01:29
sunny_is there a app like realvnc on linux?01:35
tenachsunny_, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNC/Clients01:36
tenachno problem sunny_01:37
sunny_maybe u know about audio on 9.04?01:37
tenachI used to.01:39
sunny_can u help please? :D01:40
sunny_i want to go on linux to start learning about it but this audio problem stops me from doing it01:41

stlsaintpleia2: what do you use your netbook for?04:15

paultagheyya bobo12313:13
paultagbobo123: don't mind this13:13
bobo123I tried some linux-games and found xwelltris, but can't make it run in fullscreen.13:14
paultagbobo123: anything we can help with?13:14
paultagbobo123: Humm, OK. Sec, let me research that package13:14
paultagbobo123: have you tried the simple thing? Calt + enter?13:14
paultagalt *13:14
bobo123in the webpage from the original programmer it says that i should write xwelltris --full to make it go fullscreen (normally you want to run games in fullscreen so it should be default in imho, or at least have a key or setting but......) well it doesn't work. still no fullscreen with -full13:15
paultagbobo123: have you tried alt + enter?13:16
bobo123no ctrl-enter don't work either. or any other I can think of, F, F1113:16
paultaglet me install it. It uses libsdl, so it can do it13:16
bobo123(yeah I ment alt-enter)13:16
paultagbobo123: I'm not seeing anything. File a bug with debian, if you don't mind :)13:18
bobo123btw, the package (in synaptic) says it is 1.0.1-14 (=the latest version I believe), the man xwelltris says 1.0.1, but when I run the game itself says 'VERSION 1.0.0 2002-03-11' in its menuscreen. but perperhaps just noone change its graphics.13:20
paultagthat's correct bobo12313:20
paultagbobo123: when Debian packages stuff in, the last dash is the Debian modifier13:20
paultagbobo123: so that means it's the 14'th debian upload of 1.0.113:21
bobo123if someone can make it run fullscreen then they should edit the games graphics to say 1.0.1 instead 1.0.0 too I guess13:21
paultagbobo123: you should really file a bug report on that13:23
bobo123(and change the adress to it's webpage too, it still says som soviet union webserer that doesn't exist anymore, the new one is xnc.jinr.ru)13:23
paultagbobo123: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?repeatmerged=no&src=xwelltris13:23
bobo123ok I do that13:23
paultagbobo123: they are not the soviet union anymore13:23
paultagbobo123: it's russia13:23
bobo123I wonder if the su topdomain even exist anymore :-)13:24
paultagdoubt it :)13:24
bobo123did you try to run it in fullscreen and it didn't work there either?13:24
bobo123so it isn't just for me that it fails with -full I mean13:25
paultagbobo123: yes, it does not go fullscreen with -full, --full, -fullscreen, or --fullscreen13:25
paultagbobo123: common key bindings are also not present13:25
paultagbobo123: so I'd file a bug13:25
kermiachmm...  "'xwelltris -full' - for full screen mode. Note that this option works only with SDL support." Any ideas which "SDL libraries" the author is referring to?13:28

paultagkermiac: it's a C lib into OpenGL13:29

kermiacah, ok. thanks paultag13:29
bobo123if I should write a bugreport, should I run "ubuntu-bug xwelltris" from commandline or operhaps "ubuntu-bug -B debian xwelltris"13:31
kermiacbobo123: you will need to use reportbug - http://wiki.debian.org/reportbug13:34
bobo123hmm.. ubuntu-bug seems to be just an alias for apport-bug and its man-file doesn't say it have that parameter that reportbug mentioned13:34
bobo123reportbug xwelltris just gives ther error '*** ERROR: "Ubuntu" BTS is currently unsupported. Please use "ubuntu-bug" (from the apport package) for reporting bugs in Ubuntu. You can report bugs to Debian by specifying 'bts debian' in your ~/.reportbugrc or by passing the -B debian option on the commandline (see reportbug(1)).'13:35
bobo123isn't normally bugs reported in ubuntu with some webpage?13:37

kermiacbobo123: philinux https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+filebug/?no-redirect is for launchpad, where a triager will just ask for it to be forwarded upstream to debian anyway. Feel free to report it in launchpad, but it would be helpful to report it upstream (to debian) also13:42

geirhaThe filesystem defragments itself automagically16:24
geirhaWell, the ext* filesystems anyway16:24
geirhafirewall is builtin to linux and you control it with the iptables command (which is a bit hard to use). There are some CLI and GUI frontends you can install to make it easier.16:25
Shahramso what are programs such as kleen sweep, Gconf cleaner etc for?16:25
geirhaDunno, never heard of them, though the latter suggests it removes config that is not used anymore from gconf.16:26

ShahramThank you for the weblinks. Q: there is a program called firestarter and another called firewall configuration which every time have to be started, are these related to the iptables or are they different, firestarter most of the time shows hits on my computer, which I don't exactly understand?16:29

geirhaWhere is that folder located?16:35
geirhaIf it's on a network share, it may just be that it takes a bit of time for it to read the contents.16:35
geirhaTry waiting it out and see if it comes back.16:36

ShahramI mean Firewall programs, Gufw 10.04.5 and firestarter17:22
philinuxUnless you mean to change anything they don't need to be running17:23
philinuxThey are not the firewall17:23
ShahramI didn't know that Ubuntu was running its own firewall17:23
philinuxIt runs iptables by default. The apps ^ are just gui's to change settings.17:24
philinuxiptables is the firewall and if you're behind a router that has a hardware firewall built in17:25
ShahramOk. I am trying to find the terminal and the snap shot - these things are new for me17:25
philinuxApps Accessories17:25
ShahramOK - I have done that and typed top17:26
philinuxtake a screenshot17:27
Shahramhow do I send it to you17:28
Shahramits being uploaded17:34
JoeMaverickSettQUESTION: "can i install ASP.NET and such tools on Ubuntu?"17:35
Shahramyou can find the snapshot at: http://imagebin.ca/view/YE_1IjB.html17:35
Shahramphilinux you were typing about a router with a hardware firewall built in - I use the internet in a sub standard public place17:42
geirhaJoeMaverickSett: No, Microsoft doesn't bother with making their software available in linux.17:44
geirhaJoeMaverickSett: There's a project called Mono which attempts to write a .net compatible framework, not sure if it has ASP yet though.17:46
geirhaJoeMaverickSett: http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page17:48
Cheri703question about ssh'ing: I am able to use ssh within my lan, but I would like to be able to access my "server" computer when out and about. can anyone direct me to a guide on setting that up?17:51
ShahramThank you for your help - philinux and geirha - I have to go now.17:54
philinuxShahram: nothing wrong in the top image17:56
philinuxlooks fine17:56
ShahramOk thank you for looking at it - I have to go and read a bit and learn more about Ubuntu - thank you for your time17:57
philinuxCould be ubuntu-one causing a lag17:57
ShahramI was not connected to it - it might be that its automatic17:58
philinuxBye then17:58
ShahramBye and thank you17:58
JoeMaverickSettgeirha, thanks, taking a look at that site.17:58
komputesDoes anyone know how to disable the touchpad on Lucid?18:12
DarkwingDuckkomputes: for what reason?18:12
geirhaHave you looked in System -> Preferences -> Mouse ?18:13
DarkwingDuckkomputes: If you want this words for disabling it while typping but allowing it to work any other time.  http://darkwingduck.org/2010/03/temporarily-disable-touchpad-while-typing/18:14
komputesDarkwingDuck: not while typing, just outright off. I do not need it since I have an external mouse I prefer. i brush up against it by accident and would like it disabled.18:15
komputesgeirha: I do not see an option to disable the touchpas in mouse preferences, do you?18:16
DarkwingDuckkomputes: GNOME?18:16
komputesDarkwingDuck: yup18:16
DarkwingDuck:( Okay, sorry, I'm a KDE user18:16
komputesDarkwingDuck: smart move18:17
geirhakomputes: I'm not on a laptop at the moment, just thought it might have an option if there were a touchpad.18:17
komputesgeirha: there are touchpad options but none to turn it off, i don't think it would be safe to have that graphically as users would disable their mouse and then think it was broken :)18:17
geirhakomputes: Haha, good point I guess ;)18:18
komputesDarkwingDuck: there is such an option in KDE?18:18
DarkwingDuckkomputes:  http://www.bhagwad.com/blog/2010/technology/alps-synaptics-touchpad-configuration-in-lucid-lynx-ubuntu-10-04.html18:18
komputesDarkwingDuck: nice find, this blogger looks interesting with his mug18:19
DarkwingDuckkomputes: not sure, my laptop has the old school eraser head mouse :D18:19
DarkwingDuckkomputes: it's cool... I think I'll change my name to GoogleKing LOL18:19
komputesDarkwingDuck: I'm prettu good at googleing myself, did not find this one18:20
* komputes gives DarkwingDuck a gift18:20
komputesDarkwingDuck: http://www.google.com/cse/home?cx=001461844748502826593:hh-ikmexth418:20
DarkwingDuckkomputes: Searched "disable ubuntu touchpad in lucid" it was the top one LOL18:21
geirhaSeems you can turn if off with   synclient touchpadoff=118:21
geirhaThat's probably only until next reboot though18:21
komputesgeirha: nope, tried that18:21
DarkwingDuckkomputes: Let me know if that works18:22
geirhaHm. Probably some change in newer releases that makes it inert then :/18:22
komputesDarkwingDuck: well i'm about to try the gconf key in the comments18:22
komputesgeirha: right, udev18:22
DarkwingDuckkomputes: Let me know via query... going AFK18:23
geirhaAh, right. The page DarkwingDuck pasted says it right there, in the first paragraph :)18:24
komputesDarkwingDuck: geirha: this did it: "gconftool -s -t bool /desktop/gnome/peripherals/touchpad/touchpad_enabled false"18:37
geirhaLovely, nice and simple :)18:45
thomas_i'm trying to make my Canon Scanner LIDE 100 work with ubuntu. Just about there but have Simple Scan and need a fix to make it work $sudo cp ~/sane-backends/backend/genesys.conf.in /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf Ater typing this I get: cannot create regular file `/etc/sane.d/genesys.conf': Permission denied---- any suggestions?18:59
geirhaRemove the $ at the start19:00
thomas_sorry i've been typing : cp ~/sane-backends/backend/genesys.conf.in /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf19:01
geirhaAnd you need root privileges to copy the file under /etc, so you need sudo in-front of cp19:01
thomas_still get permission denied19:02
thomas_ok, should i be expecting an output in terminal after that goes through?19:04
thomas_asked for pw, then went back to command line19:04
zkriessethomas_: Did you enter your pw?19:10
thomas_i see the genesys.conf file now in the etc folder, does that mean its fixed with reboot?19:10
thomas_but saw no output19:10
zkriesseEnter your password properly, you won't see it as it's part of the security, and then press the "Enter" key19:11
thomas_done. so exit and reboot?19:13
zkriesseI guess so...I've no idea what your problem is...I was just commenting on your password issue19:13

t0byhack3rI am having problems installing a Epson printer in Ubuntu, can anyone help?20:45
pleia2t0byhack3r: what's the trouble?20:47
t0byhack3rIts an Epson Stylus SX415 but its being recognised as an SX410. I've tried changing it but it still doesn't work properly20:49
pleia2can you be more specific about "doesn't work properly"?20:50
pleia2doesn't a test page? prints things with the wrong formatting?20:50
t0byhack3rSometimes it prints properly. Sometimes it errors and the page prints part way and then stops, the printer says printing but doesn't do anything, the computer says error20:51
pleia2does it do this whether it's identified as a SX415 or a SX410?20:52
t0byhack3rit does it as both20:53
pleia2hmm, http://www.openprinting.org/printer/Epson/Epson-Stylus_SX415 seems to indicate that it works "perfectly"20:54
pleia2there are some recommended drivers listed there20:54
pleia2someone more familiar with the gnome printer tool might have to help you though20:55
t0byhack3rI've tried them. I've also tried using cups/gutenprint20:56
pleia2ah, same problems?20:56
pleia2do you know if this printer behave properly under other OSes?20:57
t0byhack3ryep. i'm worried the various things I've tried are conflicting. Is there any way to 'reset' an ubuntu install without re-installing?20:57
pleia2you can probably purge the cups install itself and reinstall it20:57
pleia2but otherwise, not really20:57
t0byhack3rI've tried un-installing then re-installing cups, it didn't help!20:58

Out-Of-Handjust a question.,.. i see pidgin was replaced with Empathy,,,, but there is not IRC on the list23:52
phillwOut-Of-Hand: I still use pidgin for IRC, but I am old fashioned, you should have X-Chat on your system. (I still use pidgin :p )23:55
* slidinghorn uses xchat 23:55
phillwOut-Of-Hand: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/XChatHowto drs305 wrote that excellent article.23:56
phillwslidinghorn: I've been told it is excellent, far more versatile than pidgin, only it cannot handle AIM, MSN and Yahoo! IM's - so, I use the one size fits all programme :-)23:57
slidinghornphillw, i rarely use instant messaging so it's not much of a hangup for me23:58
phillwI have friends on windows machines who are only used to what they are given, a pita at times but I'm not going to forsake them.23:59
Out-Of-Handyeah i agree ... i hardly use chats ...  back in 2000 i used mirc ... but ... nothing else ... now i have a little free time on my hands .. would be nice to make some friends on IRC23:59
