aeon-ltdphychole: did you do it via System>Administration>Login Window?00:00
edbianillmortal, You have to use one or the other.  fwcutter is preferred.  It is easier.  Thing is, you have to be connected to the internet then install the package.  It downloads things from the internet.  Took me a long time to learn that.  I wish it was more clearly explained.00:00

bodwickon3pk if you put a link to eg ~/Documents/Pics into ~/Dropbox it will share the Pics folder00:01
edbianillmortal, The package downloads stuff from the internet and copies into the proper directories.  I don't know how to do that on one machine and then transfer the files.00:01
boywonderimortal i may have missed prior convo, but have you checked the b43?00:01
on3pkoh awesome00:01
bodwickon3pk so you can share anything just by making symlinks to Dropbox default dir00:01

jribboywonder: you "burned as image" right?  You didn't just make it a data cd with the .iso on it?00:56
walterj89_Satan911 i would expect you would run into problems installing ubuntu on ntfs00:56
=== cesar_ is now known as Guest46881
histobonez2046: you need to perform a checksum on the burnt disk00:56
boywonderi burnt the iso00:56
histobonez2046: I believe ubottu provided instructions for that.00:56
Satan911Why's that walterj89_ ?00:56
jdawgHow do I delete a swap partition? I'm reinstalling ubuntu...says it's protected00:56
Satan911I've been looking and I can't find what's the "ideal" file system for Ubuntu00:57
bonez2046histo: I just compared to the checksum that k3b derives from the .iso when I open it there.. all the same identical sum00:57
walterj89_becvause Ubuntu I believe doesnt recongnize it by default because it owned my MS00:57
histojdawg: it must be used right now Or did you have home directory encryption?00:57
bonez2046histo: this machine I am trying to load on.. I think is intel.. would this be an issue if the machine I want to boot is instead an amd?00:57
histobonez2046: No the actual disk itself00:57
walterj89_I think ex3 or something like that is the default for Ubuntu00:57
histobonez2046: nope00:57
walterj89_I'm not an expert on it00:57
Satan911I'm formatting my partition and the only 2 options I have are NTFS and ExFAT00:57
jdawgHisto: i'm on live CD...no home dir encryption00:58
histobonez2046: hash the disk00:58
histojdawg: ahh maybe liive cd is using swap00:58
jdawgHisto: says it's unmounted00:58
tank_good evening everyone, anyone here know anything about tablets/tablet drivers00:58
walterj89_In ubuntu?  odd00:58
histojdawg: turn swap off then try00:58
bonez2046histo: how do I hash the disc?00:58
jdawghisto: how do i turn swap off00:58
histojdawg: swapoff00:58
walterj89_Those are the only options for Windows...00:58
bonez2046wiat.. I got it..00:58
MocArgh, all my text file is have the wrong caractere set in them now because of Ubuntu Terminal Charactere Set.  It show only Unicode - UTF-8... but UTF-8 = UTF8, and Unicode = UTF-16 !00:59
histojdawg: swapoff /dev/whatever00:59
jdawghisto: says i'm not a superuser00:59
jribMoc: erm... what?00:59
histobonez2046: and does it boot to a logo screen and seem to hang?00:59
tank_anyone, anyone at all know anything about tablets00:59
tru3fatecan anyone tell how to set compiz fusion , so my cube can be see thru.00:59
tank_jdawg: use sudo00:59
histojdawg: put sudo infront of the command you are using00:59
KittyBootscathoderay; What do you mean?01:00
Mocjrib: When I write Ééàêç... it actually send it in UTF-16 instead of UTF-8.01:00
bonez2046histo: no logoo screen, just boots straight through to windows01:00
jribMoc: ok.  That makes more sense.  What you first said was strange.01:00
cagordontank_ bamboo pen ctl460 PITA need to compile driver... but it does work eventually01:01
cathoderayKittyBoots, I have your solution01:01
Mocjrib: sorry.  So In the Gnome Terminal Charactere set, it set to Unicode/UTF-8 !01:01
jdawghisto: ok, i did that...same thing, didn't let me01:01
Mocso that kinda wrong01:01
histobonez2046: I would double check your bios then and set it to bootcd first01:01
jdawghisto: command worked, cant delete swap01:01
KittyBootscathoderay; What do you suggest?01:01
tank_cagordon: right now using a tablet on a thinkpad x41, it should work for that right?01:01
histojdawg: type mount    in a terminal see if its mounted01:01
walterj89_Satan911  NTFS will not work correctly with Ubuntu,  file permisions will be kind of screwed up I believe01:01
bonez2046histo the hash to disc is exactly the same too..01:02
tank_cagordon after all, its all wacom01:02
bahadunnanyone know why usb keyboard does not work in grub?01:02
histobonez2046: then boot sequence isn't hitting the cd.01:02
jribMoc: I figured that was based on your locale01:02
walterj89_Satan911 You have to boot from cd and reformat with whatever the default patition type is01:02
cathoderayKittyBoots, I could explain to you how to get there in a more convenient way...but if you want, we can go ahead from here01:02
Mocjrib: The terminal charactere set define what is sent01:02
walterj89_Satan911 if you are dualbooting with Windows you have to shrink the Windows partition probably01:03
=== Guest13872 is now known as froggyman

cagordontank_ well... launchpad has articles on building wacom drivers, pointers to fixing the udev rules, and tweaking xorg.conf.d dirs. took me abt a month elapsed to put it all together so I wouldn't call wacom a walk in the park. Of course, YMMV...01:04
Satan911But I can't seem to set it to ext4 from windows01:04
[Dead][Pixel]Hi guys, I downloaded 10.04 onto a DVD at low burn speed and want to install on my PC. right now it has a blank hard drive. I am able to boot to the disc, it shows me at the bottom of the screen a keyboard and a man in a circle, but then the screen goes black with blinking underscore at top left and does nothing else.01:04
KittyBootscathoderay; yes have msn and yahoo01:04

jdawghisto: pastebin error01:06

histobonez2046: take the hdd out of the sequence all together.  Also make sure you didn't just burn the iso file to the cd and there are actaull files there.01:06
boywonderbonez2046,  have you set the boot order?01:06
jdawghisto: yes i'm sure...hdd is the only one in sequence01:06

KarthVerminator: I simply installed it like I do with windows, and I hasn't partitioned that since 0301:38

zcat[1]It's a little ugly but a lot quicker than backing up and reinstalling if there's a lot of data (although you should already have backups too ;)01:40
m0tanHow do I get an IDE drive to mount over USB connection?01:41
KittyBootscathoderay; The directory always changes with new videos.01:41
m0tanif i do sudo fdisk -l it does not show up01:41
hellboy316dont know if possible with ide drives but you can use a usb case for sata drives01:41
Verminatorzcat[1], r u saying this would be the way to fix Karth's current probl;em?01:41
cathoderayKittyBoots, ok, you want to be prompted for the source directory of mts files or the destiny directories of converted files? or both?01:42
m0tanhellboy316, I'm using a IDE/SATA->USB converter01:42
Karthyeah I don't backup often, the only media I have to back up with is ZIP 100 disks and 3 1/4 discs01:42
hellboy316m0tan: I have seen external usb cases for sata ... i havent used it though01:43
Karthso its not that viable01:43
m0tanhellboy316,oh ok01:43
VerminatorKarth, so do u have a lot of customizations and dta?01:43
hellboy316are you not able to install the drive in the case properly01:43
Karthits not my pc, thats the primary reason for not formatting01:43
VerminatorKarth, oh ok, that explains some...thinking01:44
cathoderayKittyBoots, if you want to be prompted, use the "read" command01:44
cathoderayKittyBoots, take a look at here -> http://www.linuxconfig.org/Bash_scripting_Tutorial01:44
VerminatorKarth, just for future ref, the ubuntu upgrader has a bad reputation01:44
boywonderok i got a question, if i want to boot from grub do i need a u3 usb disk?01:45
VerminatorKarth, uusally best to install from new iso disk01:45
KarthVerminator: I just really don't want to have to start over every new version01:45
zcat[1]Karth, use the alternative cd and do an upgrade?01:46
VerminatorKarth, oh I agree, its a pain, and I've only done it once, but most articles i read have bad experience w/ the upgrade01:46
VerminatorKarth, its why i stick w/ the LTS versions01:46
zcat[1]I've had one or two upgrades go OK, but most go bad....01:46
KarthI see, what is the LTS version01:46
VerminatorKarth, Long Term Service release01:47

[Dead][Pixel]Hi guys, I downloaded 10.04 onto a DVD at low burn speed and want to install on my PC. right now it has a blank hard drive. I am able to boot to the disc, it shows me at the bottom of the screen a keyboard and a man in a circle, but then the screen goes black with blinking underscore at top left and does nothing else. The DVD works fine on other computers.01:47
Karthstill rather often, the pc I'm on now hasn't needed a reinstall of any sort for 6 years now01:47
VerminatorKarth, do u have any of the live CDs to use?01:48
Karthjust a 9.1 live cd01:48
zcat[1]Karth, you could give debian a shot, it has a much longer releace cycle and I think a smoother upgrade path..01:48
Karthtakes like 20 mins to boot in though due to low RAM01:48
mxe5Hi - How do I run a file from the CD-Rom as administrator - When I try to run it - I get an error saying I need to run the file as administrator ? ?01:48
VerminatorKarth, sorry, but i think this one is over my head, very sorry.01:49
zcat[1]mxe5, sudo01:49
KarthI see, I'm not too experienced with linux in general01:49
boywondersudo -s01:49
boywonderthats root01:49
zcat[1]sudo name-of-script.sh01:49
Verminatormxe5, u could use a terminal, cd to the CDrom, and use sudo to run the command/file, etc01:49
jjk9___mxe5:  sudo01:49
zcat[1]or sudo -i / sudo -s to get a root shell and then run the script01:49
Karthso there's no way to correct it at this point?01:50
zcat[1]or alt-F2 gksu nautilus to open a browser window running as root, then brose to the cd and run (doubleclick) the script..01:50
mxe5Verminator: I tried to get to the path of the CD rom but got an error.01:50
VerminatorKarth, I'm sure there is a way, but I dont know it.01:50
VerminatorKarth, sorry01:51
Verminatormxe5, is the CD mounted?01:51
mxe5Verminator: In terminal I typed < cd /media/cdrom0 > and get an error01:52
Verminatormxe5, whats the error?01:52
KarthVerminator: well thanks anyhow, dissapointing though, while I'm here I do have a second issue which no visits here have been able to fix. My 9 pin Impact printer prints at 2 characters a minute on that system but 1 page a minute on xp01:52
mxe5Verminator: Yes it is01:52
bonez2046timewriter: I took the new disc and stuck it in a macbook and it read right up, access all the files.. but on this machine, the dell desktop.. this disc is not visible.. i can't get it to read on this machine..01:52
humphreybcWhere should I report a bug that affects "Monitor Preferences" aka gnome-display-manager01:52
timewriterbonez2046 , your cd/dvd-rom might be malfunctioning01:53
zcat[1]Karth, many ways. You could use the live CD to resize your main partition without doing a full install, make a filesystem in the new partition, move everything but /home over, then fix up /etc/fstab and grub to match the new layout. I've done similar in the past..01:53

VerminatorKarth, ask the question in general, w/o addressing it to me, someone might no, I have little exp w/ printers, also try the forum #ubuntu-beginners01:53
bahadunnanyone know why a ps2 keyboard will not work with grub01:54
zcat[1]Karth, might be easier to use something like puppy or insert for your live CD, they'll have less overhead than ubuntu and still provide mostly the same tools01:54

chelz[Dead][Pixel]: if you can boot the disc on another computer you can select "verify integrity"02:19
ChogyDandlp211: then just make one with whatever you need.  xorg.conf is no longer needed, but you can make one to override the defaults02:19
dlp211ok so when i setup dual monitors and nvidia created an xorg.conf file for me where did it save it so i can edit it and fix my mouse being stuck on the second monitor02:20

mccWhat does the i/v thing? is one an alternate version of the other?02:34
edbianmcc, You have a segmentation fault which means some program is trying to write into ram which it is not allowed to and crashing.  Either that or you have bad ram.02:34
edbianmcc, Try running an older version of one or the other (or both)02:35
mccedbian: well, apache segmentation faults if i enable mod python, and stops segmentation faulting if i disable it.02:35

edbianfission6, How much ram do you have?03:01
jrib!swap | fission603:01
ubottufission6: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info03:01

Tweakyits strange but my swap space has always been 0 used03:02
mcci have a .tgz here. i would like to extract it.03:02
jribmcc: right click -> extract03:03
edbianfission6, 1 Gb of swap, 512Mb of swap?  You might get  slight improvement out of 2Gb instead of 1Gb of swap.  But that's pretty much it.03:03
mccunfortunately the .tgz itself is, roughly, the size of the available space left on the device.03:03
^james_foo^fission6: i think the setup is fine. if you need more speed, get more ram03:03
fission6i can't03:03

jribmcc: basically you'd have tar output to stdout, pipe to ssh then have tar read from stdin on the server03:12
edbianrobb, It's likely that your hdd is partitioned in an odd way and it's tricking Ubuntu.  All of those distros likely have identical installers03:12
DatzI'm tying to output part of a log from /var/log/ through php funtion shell_exec() but webserver user apparently doesn't have permission.03:13
Datzso can someone tell me if it is a bad idea to add webserver user to admin group?03:13
jribDatz: yes, terrible idea03:13
mccjrib: Yikes. Out of curiosity, what would I use to "read" ssh at the other end? This is something I've seen done with netcat but I didn't know you could do it with the ssh tools.03:13
Datzjrib: ok.. figures.. apache2 isn't secure :P But how to go about this then?03:13
edbianDatz, It would allow a potential hacker to make the webserver do something like "destroy the entire filesystem.03:13
robbedbian: i let the installer wipe the hdd each time :)03:14
Datzedbian: ok. I see.. bad idea.. glad I didn't do it03:14
robbi'll read that pastebin thing and try it out, looks similiar to what i tried earlier03:14
edbianrobb, odd03:14
edbianDatz, yep03:14
sacarlsonrobb: from the sound of it you may have you bios set to boot something other than /dev/sda.  if you do that you need to tell the install where you want the mbr to be.03:14
Datzedbian: did you see my original problem?03:14
jribmcc: something like this should work I think:  tar czvf - foo/ | ssh example.com 'tar xzvf -'03:15
edbianDatz, Yeah, make the file writeable for the server.03:15
robbyea, the advanced button on step 8. i tried dev/sda and dev/sda1, same results03:15
jribmcc: basically you can think of ssh letting you have the pipe go to another machine, but it would work the same as if you strung together two tar commands with no ssh involved03:15
sacarlsonrobb:  what does your bios boot from?  sdb1?  sdc2?  you should check it03:16
robbi have options for usb, usb drive, network, etc03:16
mccjrib: oh, that is interesting. thank you03:16
edbiansacarlson, That makes no sense.  the bios boots from the motherboard (itself), the bios then tells some partition to boot.03:16
jribmcc: but I would use scp03:16
Datzedbian: humm, just need it readable. I don't know if I can make fail2ban.log readable to www-data easily?03:16
robbi've tried every combination of devices and order, always same grub failure03:17
mobashercan anyone help me fix my login screen issue...i was playing with login screen on 9.04 and i messed up my login screen now i can't login03:17
Datzhumm.. probably need more info than that mobasher03:18
sacarlsonedbian: that's correct it boot SOME partition that is controled by settings that can be changed at bios setup.03:18
mobasherokay i think i turned on the xdmcp or something than i started getting no server are there for me to logon to..now i changed something in the gdm.conf and it tells me no servers were defined in the config file and xdmcp was disabled03:19
Datzthink edbian is gone?03:19
jribmobasher: if you could get rid of the "something"s, it would probably be easier to help03:19
* Datz goes about another method03:19
mobasherunfortunately i didn't make the backup of the gdm.conf otherwise i wouldn't have ended up in this issue03:20
mobasheris there anyway i can reset the configuration file to a default one or something ?03:20
robbcan login as different user to a shell?03:20
boywonderi hate it when that happens03:20
jribrobb: yes, use "su - USERNAME"03:20
mobasher<rob> the gdm screen login not the shell03:21
robbjrib: not me, for mobasher03:21
mobasherhow can i reinstall the gdm ...can someone guide me to that...is it apt-get install gdm or ??03:22
rd4sudo apt-get remove gdm && sudo apt-get install gdm03:22
jribmobasher: something like the following should do it...  apt-get -o DPkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" --reinstall install PACKAGE_THAT_THE_FILE_BELONGS_TO     (though I don't remember right now if you have to delete/move the file for it to restore it)03:22
mobasherjrib>> thanks mate let me try that out..03:22
jribmobasher: I'm leaning towards: yes, you need to remove/rename the existing gdm.conf for it to work (or see « man dpkg » for a better option)03:24
mobasherjrib>> i removed the gdm package and it was asking me to remove linux headers so i did03:26
mobasherjrib>> now i'm unable to resinstall them back on03:26
mobasherapt-get install gdm03:26
rockhopperwhat does it say mobasher03:26
mobashercould not resolve us.archive.ubuntu.com03:26
mobasherso there is no internet for it to download the packge i guess03:26
jribmobasher: I didn't say to remove any package03:27
rockhopperyep you have to have internet!!03:27
rockhopperyou shud've reinstalled or done that --force-confmiss03:27
mobasheri have the CD 9.04 can i resinstall from there ?03:28

spazzyI have just installed ubuntu 10.04 on a old pc.  It has a Nvidia AGP geforce 5500 graphics card.  I could only get it to run from the live cd with the nomodeset xforcevesa options.  After installing the cursor would flash on a black screen.  I edited the GRUB menu with nomodeset xforcevesa and now I can get to cli but I can't get into the x server.  xinit brings up a small window that looks...03:54
spazzy...like a console but it is unresponsive.  Any suggestions on how to get the X.org window(GUI) environment working?03:54
mobasherDasEi> can't i move the packages from the livecd and use them somehow ?03:54

Viking667quick question - how would I generate a sine wave from the commandline using the gstreamer tools? Some of the examples in the gst-launch manpage aren't working for me, telling me: Error constructing pipeline: no such element 'sinesrc'03:55
=== lov2555 is now known as lov25555
Viking667For what it's worth, I can't seem to use the "spider" element for the same reason03:55
mobasherDasEi> no worries bro..i think i'm gong to reinstall the stupid thing...what else can i do ..no much there is to do :) thanks for the info though...i should have just renamed the gdm.conf file to begin with instead of removing gdm03:56
DasEimobasher: might be easier to boot desk by live cd, chroot in and try network conectivity, then install03:56
=== lov25555 is now known as lov2555
[Dead][Pixel]DasEi: no, it's not the issue, my internet 2tb drive is what i use to boot the live cd to, and there is data on that drive, how do i find it?03:56
mobasherDasEi> naaa it's not going to work i know this old school pc....no worries i just have to reinstall weblogic on it again that's all.03:56

trakinas[Dead][Pixel]: I see.04:06
DasEi[Dead][Pixel]: which filesystem shall sdb5 be ?04:06
DasEiah ^04:06
DasEi[Dead][Pixel]: prbly unformated then04:07
[Dead][Pixel]DasEi: yeah it doesn't say, it says there is no partition table, so no info is loaded other than the drive04:07
DasEi[Dead][Pixel]: so will have to do that first04:07
[Dead][Pixel]DasEi: well if it was unformatted, how come i can hook it up to this laptop with ubuntu via USB (external) and it works04:07
trakinasI have to go now.04:07
trakinascheers all!04:07
[Dead][Pixel]DasEi: i don't want to format, it has data on it :p04:07

brandon420does anyone know how to get "now playing" option on xchat?04:08
DasEibrandon420: it's a plugin04:08
brandon420DasEi, can you be more specific?04:08
timotheusbrandon420: some web pages from 2008 and older say to remove shutdown permission from gdm.conf in /etc/ ; but that file does not exist with the new GDM. In fact, the new GDM configuration is not strait forward.04:09
DasEibrandon420: sudo apt-get install pidgin*, then can choose it from pluginview (amongst many others)04:09
brandon420for irc though?04:09

bsmith093so anyway joining avi file will that work or is there something else i have to do to ensure the whole file will be played04:11
Steve132So, I'm in dire need of a new laptop04:12
red2kicbsmith093: Why don't you play one file? Then play second file? Sometimes it is the simplest approach. :)04:12

Loshkibsmith093: you want avimerge to join the files....04:12
bsmith093k then i suppose thats fine04:12
bsmith093how long will it take04:12
Steve132My job is a graphics reseacher and programmer at a university04:13
sacarlson[Dead][Pixel]: I'm sure you looked at it with gparted?  seems what I read above you have a new 2tb disk with nothing of value on it just factory stuf.  sounds like you should just partition and format it and copy your files to it.  am I wrong?04:13
Steve132So I really want my new laptop to support DirectX11, or more specifically, OpenGL4.   In the past, I've been really loyal to nvidia, mostly because of their superior linux driver support04:13
red2kicbsmith093: I googled. Example: mencoder -ovc lavc start.avi end.avi -o complete.avi04:13
mikeruI have a 64-bit system. I only have 2GB of RAM though. Do I still get a speed boost for using the amd64 version, or does that only happen when you have more than 4GB of RAM?04:13
thune3ls -lrt04:14
Steve132mikeru: You should get a boost04:14
tensorpuddingthere isn't really a speed boost associated with 64-bit, that I know of04:14
xanguamikeru: better use 32bit with !pae kernel04:14
bsmith093red2kic: i found avi merge going to try that seems perfect04:14
[Dead][Pixel]sacarlson: DasEi i just hooked it up to this laptop it says NTFS, and there is a partition table...04:14
mikerutensorpudding, AFAIK the speed boost is that you can access more than 4GB of RAM natively with no PAE mumbo jumbo04:14
xanguawell if only 2gb !pae is not necesary04:14
DasEi[Dead][Pixel]: which live cd you use ? older one ?04:15
IzinucsI'm trying to use Brassero to create an iso of a cd.. it wants to create a .toc .. how do I get it to create an .iso?04:15
tensorpuddingthat's not really a speed boost04:15
mikerutensorpudding, I heard PAE is slower than native access04:15
DasEi[Dead][Pixel]: or size of drive maybe not supported by other bios ?04:15
sacarlson[Dead][Pixel]: so did a friend give it to you with files you want to copy from it or do you want to put files on it?04:15
mikerutensorpudding, and 64-bit arithmetic stuff04:15
tensorpuddingprobably true04:15
Steve132tensorpudding: I don't know if the benchmarks bear it out, but a 64-bit cpu using 32-bit instructions, especially when most of the x86 packages are compiled for a 386 or 58604:15

[Dead][Pixel]sacarlson: bios recognizes drive04:15
tensorpudding64-bit addressing should actually increase ram usage I think04:15
Steve132would theoretically be significantly slower than native 64-bit04:16
mikerutensorpudding, It does.04:16
DasEiStarcraftmazter: it is04:16
[Dead][Pixel]DasEi: sacarlson the drive was external originally, perhaps it's the controller card?04:16

Steve132Uh, anyway, what I wanted to ask was "Does ATIs linux support still suck?  Anyone run OpenGL apps under ati drivers?"04:17

tensorpuddingit probably means that your version of bash or ash is so old that the shell scripts are incompatible04:17
Izinucsnvm.. I got it.. properties change to iso... doh! . you'd figure that would be the default for brassero04:17
gryllidatensorpudding: define `what shell' question, I do not understand04:17
sacarlson[Dead][Pixel]: I don't think it's a controller problem.  did you try auto mount it by going to Places>Computer and click on the device to auto mount it?04:17
gryllidaxangua: how?04:17

DasEi[Dead][Pixel]: I don't think so, but look up the type in gpated, next to size could be a table problem04:18
prince_jammysgryllida: Hardy has bash 3.X, which is a pretty modern shell. That installer has a problem.04:18
[Dead][Pixel]sacarlson: i plug the drive externally into the computer and boot into ubuntu livecd and it shows up fine, so i don't know why it won't work internally04:18

gryllidaLoshki: bopm04:19
mikerugryllida, sudo do-release-upgrade04:19
mikeruwhat the shell.04:19
tensorpuddinggryllida: what software is this you're trying to compile04:19
Datzhi, I'm tring to edit something with emacs, but I can't edit the file. It says it is locked.04:19
Datzhow can I unlock the file?04:19
tensorpuddinggryllida: you should check the requirements of this software to see what it means04:19
mobasher<Datz> what kind of file...try sudo it04:20
DasEiDatz: own it to you or least give write access04:20
Steve132mikeru: Regarding the link you posted, it seems mostly talking about proprietary software, for which most of it is compiled in 386 mode so it won't get the benefit...but if you get 64-bit ubuntu, ALL of your code can use wider data paths, more registers, and the full x86_64 architecture, including sse3 and all that04:20
spazzyI have just installed ubuntu 10.04 on a old pc.  It has a Nvidia AGP geforce 5500 graphics card.  I could only get it to run from the live cd with the nomodeset xforcevesa options.  After installing the cursor would flash on a black screen.  I edited the GRUB menu with nomodeset xforcevesa and now I can get to cli but I can't get into the x server.  xinit brings up a small window that looks...04:20
spazzy...like a console but it is unresponsive.  Any suggestions on how to get the X.org window(GUI) environment working?04:20
Datzmobasher: I've actually tried that as well, with no success.04:20
Steve132mikeru: Unless you have some compelling reason to get the 32-bit version (driver issue or proprietary software that's 32 only) then I strongly reccomend 64-bit04:21
mobasheras DasEi said try to own and then and try it04:21
Loshkigryllida: Upgrading is a last resort, IMO. Is it bopm-3.1.3.tar.gz, or a cvs version...04:21
mikeruSteve132, but doesn't it use more memory?04:21
Izinucsspazzy: do a full upgrade now.. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade .. when done sudo service gdm start04:21
DatzDasEi: I was just editing it recently04:21
DatzI created the file04:21
Steve132maybe, but its probably miniscule04:21
Steve132the memory usage will be in pointer variables04:21
mikeruLoshki, lucid is LTS and should be much better supported04:21

mikerugryllida: WEIRD. (and nextime use pastebin.ubuntu.com)04:22

mobasherDatz>> dude use vi ...more powerfull ;)04:35
tensorpuddingyou can try using lsof to see if it is open somewhere04:35
prince_jammystell us the error message.04:36
Steve132so, does anyone have any experience with ATI under linux?  Does it still suck?  Can you run OpenGL well?04:36
tensorpuddingthere's probably a file that is created when emacs locks a file from being edited, and just killing emacs didn't remove that lockfile04:36
Datzmobasher: but the I have to learn vi04:36
tensorpuddingpossibly in /var/lock04:36
DatzDasEi: just a small unimportant php file04:36
spazzyvi is not to bad really just takes a little while to get use to04:37
mobasher<Steve132> ATI works man..but i'm on 9.04...works great for me like a charm..will get a nvida card soon then try the latest version of ubuntu...but so far it's very stable :)04:37
tensorpuddinghmm, it seems that it would be in the same folder as the file you were editing04:37
prince_jammysSteve132: if you need 3D from fglrx, support for some cards has been discontinued. The open source 'radeon' works pretty well, depending on your needs.04:37
LoshkiDatz: read the online help for emacs re: Interlocking. There's a lock file you probably need to delete..04:37
DasEiSteve132: for ubuntu, the newer ati's are better supported by the opensource-drivers, though still no fun in propitary drivers, so I prefer nvidia or others04:37
tensorpuddingso try doing ls -a in that directory04:37
DatzLoshki: I'll take a look04:37
mobasherDatz>> hahahhaa..it's not that hard mate...if i can learn it anyone in this room can trust me :) just look for cheat sheet of vi on the net :)04:37
Steve132prince_jammys: Yeah, I need the proprietary driver support, because I need OpenGL4 for my job04:38
prince_jammysSteve132: check if your card is supported.04:38
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto04:38
DasEiDatz: php is for acces, so consider to change it back afterwards : sudo chowm Datz some.php, change accordingly04:38
DasEiDatz: php is for acces, so consider to change it back afterwards : sudo chown Datz some.php, change accordingly ^typo04:38
Steve132Well, I haven't bought anything yet, I'm looking into a new system and I want to know if the price difference on the top-of-the line is worht it04:38
mobasherSteve132>> it's funny some of the top of the line cards sometimes give u more headache than the 100 bucks card ..which works like a blaze lol..trust me04:39
prince_jammysLook online for problems with fglrx and whatever card you're thinking of buying04:39
DasEiSteve132: depends on what you want to do with it under ubuntu04:39
Steve132An HD5870 looks awesome vs a GF480 for the price, but I need the high end GPU support and OpenGL4,04:39
Steve132I want to run and compile GL4 applications04:40
chris_osxhow are the opensource-drivers energy-wise? do they safe the same amount of energy as the proprietary ones ? (on notebooks)04:40
Datzmobasher: well.. I'll look into vi04:40
DatzDasEi: thanks, I'll try that04:40
mobasherDatz >>> no worries anytime ;-)04:40
Steve132so, its looking like I should stick with Nvidia despite the price because of the better proprietary driver support04:41
DasEiDatz: emacs is more advanced, for starting up nano,vi or (x) gedit and kate are for startup04:41
Datzwell, I've used emacs for awhile.. leaned to like it.. but worth looking into other editors04:42
prince_jammysDatz: what is the problem?04:43
DasEiSteve: sadly yes, desktop effects can be done with some ati's upper the 9200 series, but full 3 d support is still a problem,04:43
tensorpuddingDatz: did you do what i suggested?04:43
DasEiDatz: listen to tensorp, too, case file is locked by another process04:44

cyberjunk502ActionParsnip: how to mount the partition as /home06:37
ActionParsnipcyberjunk502: you'll need to move the data to another place too or the data will be stored twice. Mounting only replaces the visible data06:37

ActionParsnipfishcooker: you need to boot to a different usb to install to another usb (or boot cd to install) if you transferred the iso then it uses a compressed file so changes don't stick06:41

DoyleBam_Bam: try running it with sudo... that's all the suggestion I can offer. Sorry06:44
shawnboyAnyone know where mozilla keeps desktop background images?**06:44
ActionParsnipfishcooker: the packages you run are in a big tar.gz file, as they are needed they are extracted and used. When you install stuff in the live environment it only applys to the ram drive. If you install to the usb instead of transferring the iso, it will act like a platter based drive and updates will stick06:44

shadow420the server itself is not seeing the cd rom06:49

spyk3its on my laptop and im on my desktop06:49

spyk3so basically when i get ubuntu back on do i type that sudo lshw etc into terminal?06:50
spyk3complete newb at linux06:51
Doylefishcooker: just boot from CD/DVD, then install the OS to your usb key. Be careful not to select your hard drive06:51
shawnboyI think I found it by looking at HOME/.gnome2/backgrounds.xml06:51
okrathune3, ahh that link is misleading.. its not modeset=1 its modeset=0 ;)06:51
ActionParsnipspyk3: yes and you'll see the chip. If wired works i'd advise you use a wired connection and get updated. The driver may simply be offered to you06:51

zetheroo1Dr_Willis: afaik with VNC it's anything but simple07:01
Dr_Williszetheroo1:  i found it rather simple07:02
Dr_Willisyou run the vncserver in read only mode. and let others connect.07:02
Dr_Willisover the Internet however - it can be sluggish.07:02
Dr_WillisFreeNX can be much faster07:02
Dr_Willisbut freenx is also a bit more complex to setup.07:02
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: that is what I need it for ... accessing computers all over the place07:03
Dr_WillisFor best preformance - see freenx or some of the nx variants.07:03
Dr_Williszetheroo1:  personally i just ssh in to the remote box's and run what apps i need07:03
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: so there is nothing like Teamviewer that just basically "works out-of-the-box" ...07:03
Dr_Willisgnomes built in vncserver works out of the box.. but it has its own limitations.07:04
Dr_Willisssh -X remotebox    works :)07:04

zetheroo1Dr_Willis: with Teamviewer you just install it and give the remote individual the pin ... he puts it in the program on his side and accesses your system ... no setup needed at either end07:05
fishcookerdr_willis zetherool visit nomachine.com07:05
fishcookerthere is varian freenx there07:05
ikeyDr_Willis, a few  X extensions cause issues with it tbh.07:05
zetheroo1Teamviewer is also for Mac, Windows and Linux ...07:05
ikeyNot just composite07:05
Dr_Williszetheroo1:  he enters the pin in what exactly?  he has to install somthing to access the teamviewer box dont he07:05
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: yes ... both sides install the app07:06
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: if I want to access your system I get your pin and put it into my app ...07:06
Dr_Willisso its getting the actual connection info from some master server?   via the pin?07:07
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: yes ... I suppose it's all running through another server somewhere07:07
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: Yuuguu is much like Skype ... but with "Screen Sharing"07:07
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: and it also is for Mac, Windows and Linux07:08
Dr_Willisthen why dont you use it? what did i miss. :)07:08
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: the reason I use these apps is because the person I am helping does not have to be tech-savvy to use them ....07:08
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: but at the same time I would rather use something free and open source if it were available07:09
zetheroo1but I am prepared to be told there is nothing quite like it ;)07:09
Dr_Willisvnc and NX are more 'general' tools - is the reason they are not 2 clicks and they are done.07:09
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: ok07:09
Dr_Willisvnc and nx can do what you want. but they will take more setup. because they have different design goals.07:10
Dr_Willisthen can also do 100x more then what you want. :)07:10
ActionParsnipMost apps have webuis so vnc often isn't needed :)07:10
ActionParsnipHi suigeneris07:10
suigenerisis there a simple way to show codec info of a video file?07:11
* suigeneris waves to ogunay 07:11
ActionParsnipsuigeneris: I believe mencoder can show that07:11
Dr_Willissuigeneris:  ffpobe can give info also.07:11
Dr_Willissuigeneris:  or right click on a video , properties and check the tabs07:11
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: but why is it sluggish over the Internet?07:12
Dr_Willisgnome file manager can give a lot of info.. but im not sure if thats a default feature. or if extra packages are needed07:12
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: I have heard that from several ppl07:12
Dr_Williszetheroo1:  vnc is a rather old protocall and shares the whole desktpp as a series of images (basically)07:12
Dr_Willisit was designed for lan ussage and quick connections. and not super complex desktops07:12
coldhaklxde appears to be forcing the default panel to be stuck to the bottom of the screen. is this a bug, or a 'feature'?07:13
coldhakany way to fix it?07:13
Dr_Williscoldhak:  You may want to ask in #lubuntu07:13
ActionParsnipcoldhak: it can be moved to the top (I believe)07:13
coldhakindeed, but there's so few in there, i doubt my question would be answered.07:13
Dr_Williscoldhak:  thers always the lxde homepage/docs  - theres so few people in here that use Lxde it may not get answered in here.07:14
coldhakActionParsnip, it has the option in the panel config menu, but it glitches back to the bottom.07:14
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: I take it the vnc protocol is gpl !?07:14
Dr_WillisSaw where Lubuntu is getting pushed back and is not going to be an 'official' variant in 10.10 either.07:14
Dr_Williszetheroo1:  yes - has been for years. befor nx or these other tools even existed07:14
Dr_WillisOne reason for its quirks. It was sort of the first.. (sort of) and the others learned from its limitions07:15
ActionParsnipcoldhak: right click panel -> panel settings -> geometry tab07:15
coldhakyes. it glitches back to the bottom.07:15
ActionParsnipcoldhak: the setting should be saved in your configs. Make sure you are the owner of you $HOME07:16
zetheroo1Dr_Willis: are there other gpl protocols? nx?07:16
vikihello ubuntu ppl07:16
coldhak...is it possible to not be the owner of $HOME?07:16
ActionParsnipcoldhak: otherwise I would log a bug07:16
coldhakhow do I check this?07:16
Dr_Williszetheroo1:  FreeNX is the gpl variant of NX i belive.07:16
=== DoubleString is now known as ZNC_DoubleString
Dr_Williscoldhak:  if you accidently run some apps as root.. you can mess up permissions in your users HOME - yes.07:17
Doylecoldhak: it's called a mortgage07:17
ActionParsnipcoldhak: you could have ran a gui app with sudo and garbaged the ownership, a few files may be affected and cause issues07:17
CppIsWeirdany utilities to control the cooling of laptops?07:17
ActionParsnipDoyle: nice :)07:17
vikiDr_Willis: NeatX is googles variant of freenx, also gpl and newer07:17
coldhakthe only gui app i've run with sudo is synaptic07:17
ActionParsnipzetheroo1: why are you using vnc? What do you do in the vnc session?07:18
Dr_Willisviki:  yep. ive gotten the nx stuff working.. but itsa a little confuseing..07:18
ActionParsnipcoldhak: don't!07:18
coldhakbut still, how do I check that?07:18
ActionParsnipcoldhak: sudo is not to be used with gui apps. Use gksudo07:18
vikibtw im wondering if anyone could help me with bash logging issues07:18
Dr_Williscoldhak:  ls -al /home/ and  ls -al in your home dir to see ownership/permissions07:18
ActionParsnipcoldhak: run: sudo chown -R $USER:$USER $HOME07:19
zetheroo1ActionParsnip: I am not using it07:19
ActionParsnipzetheroo1: ok cool07:19
zetheroo1ActionParsnip: I was looking to find an alternative to other tools I was using ...07:19
mobasherviki> what's the issue ??07:19
ActionParsnip!gksudo | coldhak07:19
ubottucoldhak: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)07:19
ikeyCoz you break xauthority.07:19
ActionParsnipcoldhak: if you are the owner of all of home and it still happens you should log a bug. The guys in #lubuntu may be able to help07:21
coldhakok, i'll ask them then07:21
ActionParsnipcoldhak: and maybe even in #lxde07:21
mcchello... i am having some odd problems... i am trying to install mysql-server and it keeps failing. i've purged and reinstalled several times now. i always get to a point where if i say service mysql start i get an error in daemon.log saying: "mysql pre-start process (29460) terminated with status 1"07:21
mccor some pid07:21
ActionParsnipAlthough #lxde has 14 users in07:22
mcclooking on google I see many people with similar problems but none of their fixes worked for me.07:22
mccis there any way to find some kind of log that explains where and why this "pre-start process" failed?07:22
Doylemcc: what version?07:22
coldhak#lubuntu isn't much better. I may just go back to fluxbox.07:22
DoyleI've had the issue with 5.107:23
mccUbuntu 10.04.1 LTS07:23
mccand it's mysql 5.1, yes07:23
mccdo you think it would be easier if i used mysql 4?07:23
Dr_Williscoldhak:  check  the docs at the lxde homepage. it very well could be they got the panel locked to the bottom for some reason.07:23
ikeycoldhak, Plain OpenBox is nice.. just stick your own panel in07:23
mccit appears there are a really enormous number of ways that mysql "pre-start "script can fail07:23
Dr_Williscoldhak:  the panel is handled by lxpanel program i recall.  You could roll your own desktop and use fluxvbox and lxpanel.07:24
dougb_freebsdtint2 works well with plan openbox07:24
dougb_freebsdI use that for my freebsd configuration07:24
ikeyor even bmpanel07:24
Doylemcc: does my.cnf exist for you?07:24
mccactually, this time it doesn't.07:25
Doylemcc do a "locate my.cnf" in the terminal07:25
Doyleok,  you need to put it in. It's easy... I'll give you a link07:25
mcci've purged and reinstalled about four times now... every other time /etc/my.cnf made it in, this time it didn't07:25
* mcc nods... let me handle that and come back07:26
Doylethat's the default my.cnf, save it in /etc/mysql/07:26
extraclassicdougb_freebsd: do you know how to have multiple boxes in the tint2 panel for your desktops, like in crunchbang07:26
mcci was at a point like a half hour ago though that i had that exact my.cnf file in place and it was failing for some other reason, though07:26
dougb_freebsdI don't know what crunchbang is, but tint2 is highly configurable07:26
Doylemcc: try it again to be sure. We'll run down your issue07:26
mccthanks. one minute07:27
Dr_Willisdougb_freebsd:  a ubuntu spinoff that basically just has openbox07:27
ikey9.04 anyway07:27
Dr_Willisor was it fluxbox.. or some XXXXXbox07:27
ikeyDr_Willis, OpenBox07:27
dougb_freebsdok, then why not just run crunchbang? :)07:27
ikeyDr_Willis, Latest CrunchBang uses Debian.07:27
mccby the way, just out of curiosity, how do you restart "apparmor"?07:27
DoyleOooooo, tint2 is beautiful... I love the stuff I hear about when I'm here07:28
ActionParsnipdougb_freebsd: its not supported here but you can make an equiv using ubuntu and get support here07:28
ikeyDoyle, bmpanel aint shabby either. few nice themes on deviantArt you could tweak07:28
extraclassicdougb_freebsd: crunchbang is based on ubuntu, but uses openbox...I'm using arch though for more up-to-date softwrea07:28
ActionParsnipikey: ahhh they moved to debian. Nice07:28
ikeyActionParsnip, Statler is Debian base. Last Ubuntu base was 9.0407:28
dougb_freebsdDoyle: I'm very fond of tint2, it's small but very featureful, and you can do very nifty things with it07:29
ActionParsnipikey: gotcha. Lubuntu all the way here :)07:29
* Dr_Willis looks back on all the linux variants... and the07:29
Dr_Willisgraveyard of dead disrtos...07:29
retcowhat is the flag to see the file permissions with ls?07:29
DoyleThanks ikey dougb_freebsd07:29
Dr_Willisretco:  -L or was it -l07:29
ikeyls -l07:29
retcoah thanks07:29
Dr_WillisL as in List..07:30
ikeyDoyle, np07:30
grokenif someone used mount --bind to mount the /proc dir, how can i locate the original source of the folder that is now bound to /proc?07:30
Doyleretco: if you're ever in doubt and no one's around you cna use "man ls" which will bring up the manual07:30
retcoyeah i would've guessed v as in verbose07:30
ikeygroken, check output of 'mount' by itself?07:30
retcobut that's unix for you07:30
Dr_Willisretco:  verbose is for logging type messaghes..07:30
Dr_Willisso -v makes no sence.. or  for version07:30
retcowell I went over ls --help but I couldn't see it07:30
dougb_freebsdDoyle: here is my rc file: http://dougbarton.us/tint2rc.txt07:30
ikeyDr_Willis, Its not the distro graveyard you should be looking at. Check out the newcomers :)07:31
retcoverbose is for any output to be more verbose07:31
Dr_Willisretco:  alias la='ls -al'    is a common alias07:31
retcoit makes more sense than "list" if you ask me :P07:31
ikeylist, as in "full listing"07:31
Doyledougb_freebsd: saved. That's going to save me a lot of time. Can't wait to play with it07:31
ikeybut yeah I see your point retco. list list.07:31
retcohmm, everything readable. DAMN why can't it open the files.07:32
dougb_freebsdDoyle: for the transparency to work you need something like hsetroot in order to get a background, or if you're really adventurous something like xcompmgr07:32
sinmanK i had figure out how to get the grub menu showing with a background with just one linux OS install, now I had search over and over, and came up empty handed, How do I change the ubuntu with the 5 dots from the start and shut down screen07:32
ikeysinman, that'd mean changing the plymouth theme.07:33
ikeywhich I have no clue about :)07:33
* ikey finds plymouth to be an instable technology in its infancy07:33
sinmanikey : k, then I'll do a search about plymouth themes then07:33
mccdoyle: ok... somewhat to my alarm, this time when i replaced my.cnf in /etc/mysql and ran sudo service mysql start, service just hangs07:34
Dr_WillisPlymouth really should have a trivially easy way to disable it.. :)07:34
ikeyYeah but Plymouth is too deeply rooted into Ubuntu..07:34
Doyledougb_freebsd: thanks again... i'm a trailblaizer so I'll check out xcompmgr07:34
dougb_freebsdglad to help, good luck :)07:34
ikeyDoyle, CrunchBang maintain their own fork of xcompmgr which is supposedly superior.07:35
Doylemcc: and when you kill it and try again?07:35
sinmandoes anyone else knows how i can change these in plymouth?07:35
Dr_Williseyecandy should always have an off switch. :) I can turn it off now.. but its a bit of a hack.07:35
Dr_Willissinman:  theres some alterantive plymouth themes in the repos. and other places07:35
Chr|sHow can I change the login screen? I am unable to do so. I don't care for the purple color07:35
Doyleikey: pfft, everyone says their stuff is superior... but I'll give that one a try also07:35
Dr_WillisChr|s:  if you dont like the wallpaper. find the image and change it. Or use that 'gdm2setup' proigram to tweak it.07:36
ikeyDoyle, It is pretty good tbh. xcompmgr was only intended as a demonstration composite manager.07:36
Doyleikey: linux mint says their ubuntu is more ubuntu than ubuntu... it's not07:36
ikeyDoyle, No they dont..07:36
ikeyGot it all wrong there..07:37
Chr|sDr_Willis: I have tried to change it, also tried that program. Each time I tried, it freezes on me.07:37
jhattarais there a way for a script to check if the computer needs a restart to apply updates ?07:37
mccdoyle: whenever it starts or stops i seem to be geting three lines: "main process terminated with status 1", "main process ended, respawning" and "mysql post-start process (29984) terminated with status 1". every time i start it seems to print these three lines to daemon.log endlessly07:37
mcchowever if i stop and start a lot service mysql start never exits on its own07:37
retcoawh shit it's windows paths!07:37
Dr_WillisChr|s:  editing the wallpaper is rather trivial. find the original one in /usr/share  and back it up. copy yoru new one over the old  :)07:38
retcois there a shell that can handle backslashes?07:38
rwwretco: watch your language, please07:38
DoyleI've been in their channel a few times for help with mint when I had it over the last year, but I dind't like the atmosphere07:38
sometuxI want to migrate my script from twitter basic auth to OAuth, HOW?!07:38
retcohmm sorry07:38
ikeyDoyle, LM isnt just about the underlying system, it appreciates the base and uses it to the full potential. And fwiw theres a debian version too.07:38
ikeyAlso if you'd been in the channel i'd have seen you.07:38
Chr|sDr_Willis: so basically rename the new wallpaper I want the same as the original?07:38
Doylemcc: hmmm07:39
Dr_WillisChr|s:  thats the simple way to change it.07:39
mccso this is the exact error i'm getting : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mysql-dfsg-5.1/+bug/613032 i should mention, when i purge and reinstall, it fails to set up the root password and prints an error about ./mysql/user.frm07:39
Dr_WillisChr|s:  ive seen scripts that set it to be whatever wallpaper the user selects automatically also07:39
Doylemcc: ok brb07:39
retcoI just tried rendering an lxs I saved under windows on linux07:39
Chr|sWished that was never changed in the newer version07:39
=== rambo3_ is now known as rambo3
Chr|sahh well, thanks :)07:39
retcoand I have the assumption that it can't find the file because the paths have backslashes in them07:39
retcoIs that correct?07:40
Dr_WillisChr|s:  the GDM theme is so critical? :) thats amuseing..07:40
Dr_Willis the original wallpaper i think is /usr/share/backgrounds/warty-final-ubuntu.png   (for some odd reason)07:41
dougb_freebsdretco: if you're accessing files from unix you don't use backslashes, use forward slashes07:41
dougb_freebsdand be sure to escape any spaces07:41
Blue1Dr_Willis: is that the crap stained carpet?07:41
retcoyeah well the exporter does the paths07:41
retcowill windows handle forward slashes?07:41
Chr|sDr_Willis: To me it is, no reason to change something that has worked in the previous release. Should be able to change the login screen flawlessly instead of having to rename another picture the same as the original.07:42
retcoappears it will07:42
retcough I hate operating system07:42
mccshould the mysql user be a member of the root group?07:42
Dr_WillisChr|s:   go read up on the changes with gdm2 vs gdm1  -  gdm2  will have more features.. eventually.07:42
retcoLuxrender should handle this differently07:43
Dr_WillisChr|s:  if you really want - you can install the old gdm.07:43
sometuxDoes anyone know how to migrate a shell script from "Twitter basic auth" --> "OAuth"?07:43
retcoheck, luxblend shouldn't export backslashes07:43
Blue1retco: things break:  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-control-center/+bug/56575707:43
Chr|sDr_Willis: thanks07:43
Dr_WillisI always just edit the wallpaper to a solid blue color. and thats about it for my GDM tweaking07:43
dougb_freebsdsometux: isn't that something you should be able to find on twitter's web site? Not really on topic here07:44
retcooh damn wrong channel07:44

mccand as mentioned i've tried purging / reinstalling it several times. i think what might have happened, one of the times i tried to install it i ran out of space on the disk and something got messed up that uninstalling did not fix. but i don't know.08:09
mccmy purging procedure is to purge, deluser and --delete-all-files the mysql user, then delete all files/dirs with mysql in the name08:10
Doylemcc: ok, purge it. Use synaptic package manager and search for 'mysql-server' you'll see one with the version 5.1.41-3ubuntu12.6, install that. Apparently this version has resolved the issue you're experiencing08:10
mccdoyle: okay... sorry if this is a stupid question, but what is synaptic package manager?08:11
mccthis is like a gui dpkg or something?08:11
Doylemcc... I had this issue almost 2 months ago. I did everything then one dya the issue went away... they must have snuk in an update I didn't notice08:11
n00byusing kget, shows Status - Delayed, then it shows Status - Connecting... then again Status - Delayed, does that means it cannot authenticate ?08:11
Dr_WillisSarvesh_ji:  you can set up NFS or samba. you will need to set the proper permissions on the decvice when you mount it - to be able to share it.08:11
Doylemcc: teh package manager can be found under the System menu, and under Administration08:11
mccdoyle, there is no gui on this machine and i can't really get one on08:12
Doylemcc: it's a gui to allow you to search for and install software. It handles all requirements and dependancies08:12
Dr_WillisSarvesh_ji:  if the remote box is a linux machine. It could use sshfs to access the device. or winscp if its a windows box.   This may be easier to setup08:12
n00byDr_Willis: any idea ?08:12
Doylemcc: ok08:12
mccdo you suppose there's a way to get that information with the command line tools?08:12
Dr_Willis!info synaptic08:13
ubottusynaptic (source: synaptic): Graphical package manager. In component main, is optional. Version 0.63.1ubuntu7 (lucid), package size 808 kB, installed size 6276 kB08:13
kalmosxI've been searching and trying tutorials.. nothing works. ASUS UL30 webcam upside down :(08:13
kalmosxanyone have advice? cheese is right-side up, flash is upside down08:13
Dr_Williskalmosx:  upside down? :) thats.. amuseing..  I tend to turn mine upside down when i Chat.. to annoy people08:13
n00byDr_Willis: any help?08:14
n00byusing kget, shows Status - Delayed, then it shows Status - Connecting... then again Status - Delayed, does that means it cannot authenticate ?08:14
Dr_Williskalmosx:  i saw a program that works as a front end to the webcam that can to tricks and effects.. it can rotate.. but it may be a little overkill to use it to just rotate it back.08:14
Dr_Willisn00by:  i tend to just use wget from command line.08:14
kalmosxhm, well i wonder if it will work... only flash is upside down, so i don't know what's up08:14
n00byDr_Willis: and you can use resume, pause and so on from the command line itself ?08:14
mccso according to this 5.1.41-3ubuntu12.6 is the version i have installed08:15
mcci got this with dpkg --list | grep mysql08:15
Dr_Willisn00by:  wget has options for those yes.08:15
mccdo you suppose if i just went with mysql 4, the problem would correct itself?08:15
Dr_Willisn00by:  IF the server supports it08:15
Doylemcc: just to confirm you're installing with 'sudo apt-get install mysql-server-5.1'?08:15
n00byDr_Willis: hmm, just used kget doenst works, but thanks!08:15
mcci'm installing with sudo aptitude install libdbd-mysql-perl mysql-client mysql-server08:15
mccbut that's choosing the 5.1 package08:15
Doylemcc: have you run sudo apt-get update recently?08:15
mccyes, within the last few hours08:16
mccand everything is upgraded08:16
kalmosxperhaps i should install a lens on my webcam to flip the image...08:16
Dr_Williskalmosx:  this tool (i cant find its name)  sort of works as a middleman - it makes a 2nd fake video device  so the webcam -> program -> device -> program accessing the cam.. sees the fake cam. that can do all sorts of tricks. and even get some programs working that have issues directly accessing the web cam08:16
mast`would anyone know how to open a gnome-terminal window with more than one tab then telling each tab what process to run? directly from a command line (or a shell script)08:16
Dr_Willismast`:  ive seen that asked befor.. i think its possible. but i dont recall how it was done. check gnome-terminal --help perhaps08:17
kalmosxDr_Willis: this sounds excellent, if only i could find it...08:17
Doylemcc: ok, sorry, for aptitude update then. hmmm08:18
mcci'm gonna try 4.1. wave a dead chicken08:18
Dr_Williskalmosx:  i saw it on the 'pinguy os' ubuntu variant and was playing with it. It let me pipe videos to my webcam. :)08:18
mccit just seems so strange that these scripts are failing and the most specific error i can get is "status 1"08:18
Doylemcc: would it be ok for you to just use 'sudo tasksel'?08:19
Doyleit setup a lamp server08:19
kalmosxDr_Willis: i suppose i'll continue digging in google's archives08:19
mccdoyle: oh. well, that would work fine, though i'm not very familiar with it08:19
Doylemcc: give it a shot, it sets it up as the packages would normally be setup anyway. It's just a quicky way someone setup at some point08:20
mccdoyle: this looks like it's doing basically the same things i was doing by hand08:20
Doylethe status 1 error is junk. Programmers. Can't kill em... lol08:20
mccwell that's terrifying08:21
Doylewhat is?08:21
mccthe tasksel thing worked on the first try :O08:21
Doylebo ya!08:21
mcclike, mysqld is running fine now :O08:21
mccthank you so much!08:21
DoyleThat's now my answer for everything08:21
Dr_Williskalmosx:  yea. I recall the app was java based (wich suprised me) i dont see it in the PinguyOS listing.. proberly because it was not an app he just apt-get install'ed.. but nstalled by hand. Let me heck my bookmarks08:21
Evo11morning guys08:22
kalmosxDr_Willis: thanks a lot :)08:22
Doyleanytime mcc, that was fun08:22
Evo11does anyone know of a good program for creating ISO files of movies?08:22
* ikey would say dd but always gets flamed for it08:23
p1oooop1Evo11: yeah, but I don't think it's for linux...08:23
p1oooop1stupid windows domination.08:23
Evo11k lm looking for a linux one tyhough08:23
p1oooop1Evo11: search up dvdshrink ;)08:23
DoyleEvo11: use dd08:23
Evo11l use that on my windows machine also08:23
undifinedp1oooop1, decss was made on linux ..08:24
Evo11that is for linux Doyle?08:24
undifinedlol Doyle08:24
ikeyExample: dd if=/dev/dvd of=MY_BACKUP_LEGIT_HONEST.iso08:24
DoyleEvo11: yes, dd copies information bit for bit from the source to the destination, empty space included08:24
ikeyTechnically it should be UDF. but ohwell.08:24
undifinedEvo11, tried K3b or Brasero08:24
Dr_Williskalmosx:  i cant find the name in my bookmarks either. When i Upgraded this box. it may got removed.. I need to reboot the other box to Pinguy to find its name.. but that box is busy for the next 20 min reencoding a video. so it may be a bit. I cant even find it on google.08:25
Evo11I tried that one undifined but I got the following error: libdvdcss.so.2 (library).08:26
undifinedgot dcss ? no :p08:26
kalmosxDr_Willis: i appreciate your help, thanks08:27
Evo11no l don't have dcss, but lm installing K3b to try that one08:27
jhattaraif there any way for a script to see if apt wants to restart the system ?08:28
dougb_freebsdjhattara: if you're that worried about it, just restart08:29
jhattaradougb_freebsd, i'd like to make an automated script to restart a server in case of kernel upgrade08:30
dougb_freebsdyou shouldn't do automated kernel upgrades08:30
=== JimmyJ is now known as JimmyJ|zz
jhattaradougb_freebsd, would it be better to make a manual timed restart08:32
dougb_freebsdthat depends, what are you trying to accomplish?08:32
sinmanhow can i delete a file thru the command line?08:32
jhattarai have a webserver that needs to be restarted in the middle of the night if at all08:32
jhattaraand was just wondering is it possible to let apt control the need for restart08:33
ikoniasinman: rm08:33
sinmanikonia : thanxs08:33
dougb_freebsdupdating software on a server without human interaction is a really bad idea08:33
ikoniajhattara: are you seriously saying free bsd has a better "cron" than Linux ?08:33
dougb_freebsdbut if you choose to do it anyway, best of luck to you :)08:34
jhattarawell, i have no physical access to the server around the time the restart has to be done08:34
dougb_freebsdikonia: I don't see him saying that at all08:34
dougb_freebsdjhattara: who said anything about physical access?08:34
ikoniadougb_freebsd: no, I've just re-read, my mistake08:34
ikoniadougb_freebsd: your nick name caused confusion08:34
dougb_freebsdikonia: no worries :)08:34
dougb_freebsdsomeone else on freenode has dougb08:34
dougb_freebsdand the first time I logged on here I was looking for help on another channel, so I wanted to make it clear who I was08:35
jhattarawhat's the difference if i don't have physical access to the server whether the restart is in cron or if i do it with ssh?08:36
dougb_freebsdjhattara: I'm assuming you have some sort of remote console access since it's a server ... if you don't, you're better off doing it when you have physical access08:37
dougb_freebsdwhich is better, to have it down for 10 minutes during the day when you can fix it immediately, or to have it down for 4 hours overnight because you told cron to reboot it and it failed to come back?08:37
jhattarayeah, i got ssh08:38
Dr_WillisI have to wonder why a webserver 'needs to be restarted' daily08:38
jhattaraDr_Willis, who said anything about daily08:38
dougb_freebsdssh is not remote console access08:38
Dr_Williswhy else would you want to be automateing it..?08:39
jhattarawell, that's all the access i got to the computer08:39
Dr_Willisssh in restart it then.. and hope for the best i guess. if its a one time thing.08:39
dougb_freebsdjhattara: then don't do software upgrades OR reboots unless you have physical access08:39
* Dr_Willis agrees with dougb_freebsd08:39
dougb_freebsdDr_Willis: you missed a whole bunch of the conversation08:39
Dr_Willisdougb_freebsd:  probnerly. :) been researching info for  some other guy...08:39
Dr_WillisI need a longer history buffer on my irc client08:39
Dr_WillisIve had to many 'remote' box issues.. and the remote headless server is in the next room...08:41
jhattaradougb_freebsd, so basically you are saying that i shouldn't reboot a system at all if i don't have a primitive access to it?08:42
=== pins is now known as pinPoint
dougb_freebsdyes, that's exactly what I'm saying08:43
dougb_freebsdunless of course it's not a problem if the thing stays off line till you can get to it again08:43
Dr_Williswhy is cron involved.. cant shutdown take a time artument also..08:44
jhattaraDr_Willis, it can08:44
jhattarai was just wondering if i could do a fully automated script that would restart only if apt thinks it needs a restart08:44
jhattaraanother script i'd like to create is something that would probe the status of various server-daemons and attempt to restart them if they are not functioning properly08:47
dougb_freebsdthere are all sorts of monitoring systems available already ... nagios is probably the easiest place to start08:48
Dr_Williskalmosx:  the hard to rember name is 'webcamstudio' *doh*08:48
Blue1dougb_freebsd: I use hobbit08:48
kalmosxDr_Willis: awesome! i'm going to try it now08:48
Dr_Williskalmosx:  http://www.ws4gl.org/08:48
Dr_WillisWebcamStudio For GNU/Linux creates a virtual webcam that can mix several video sources together08:49
Dr_WillisIt has some real neat features. You can broadcast your desktop, then switch to your face. then to a movie, or other source real fast.08:49
kalmosxthis sounds like an awesome tool :D08:49

Dr_Williskalmosx:  yea. You can stgream a video to your friends and chat with them at the same time08:58
Blue1rileyp: you should have a file called libflashplayer.so in /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer08:58
Dr_Williskalmosx:  some of the GUI is odd. and not clear like whats a 'animation' source vs a actual video..08:58
Blue1rileyp: so let's do a reality check and make sure it's there08:59
ipunkthe problem is that the quality of the sound is very bad sometimes08:59

Dr_Williskalmosx:  try using a video file as your source. and see if the colors are correct. This is the 2nd pc now ive seen the colors be wrong09:02
rileypBlue1,  flash is working just no sound I need to set my default sound output device to the hdmi port somehow09:02
kalmosxDr_Willis: will do, just a moment09:02
Dr_Willissreerajc:  what is this sh file exactly? it can depend  on what its isntalling09:02
rileypBlue1 Me thinks if i plugged in speakers to 1/4 inch jack I would have sound09:03

ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade09:47
ikoniaipunk: your audio controller may just have a poor kernel module09:47
ipunkit sounds just fine on w709:48
ikoniaipunk: yes but you're not using windows 7, hence why I said it may just have a poor kernel module09:48
ipunkkernel doesn't say much to me Im afraid ;(09:48
ikoniaipunk: kernel is basically the linux "driver manager"09:49
ipunkis there anyway i fix this I have acer 5738 ZG09:49
ikoniaipunk: what is your audio controller, that's the real question09:49
ipunkacer aspire 5738zg*09:49
__good_day_codebrainz: When I configure virtual machine in vmware, I entered username/pass. I tried that and it is working. Thank you. The installation process didnt ask anything performs - installing additional components, network detect, dhcp configration, settingup clock, formatting partition, installing base system.09:49
ipunkikonia:  how do I check whats my audio controller?09:50
ikoniaipunk: check your hardware specs (back in 5 minutes)09:50

ipunkcodebrainz:  please tell the exact instuction second day on ubuntu09:53
codebrainz__good_day_, did you install "command line only" system?09:53
__good_day_codebrainz: No, it didnt ask anything and install on its own. I am not sure where to do the required setting09:53
codebrainzipunk, 'apt-get install hwinfo' and then 'man hwinfo' for instructions09:54
codebrainz__good_day_, try 'apt-get install xorg ubuntu-desktop'09:55
ahoxHi, is there a way to find out how many ram modules are installed without openin the case?09:56

ipunkcodebrainz:  thx i has the hardware listed in mah termianl now09:57
__good_day_codebrainz: it needs administrative priviliges to execute the command. I am loggin in as ubuntu@ubuntu. I havenot entered anywhere the root password while installation or configuring the virtual machine. Any way i get login as root or run su command.09:57
__good_day_codebrainz: any default root password09:58
codebrainz__good_day_, sudo apt-get install ...09:58
codebrainz__good_day_, it sounds like you're running the live system though and not the installed one, you should've been asked to setup a user09:59
th0rahox: free will show memory10:00
__good_day_codebrainz: ooh.. Yes, How to make sure I am running live system. Also your command works and I have been asked to install a lot of packages of around 2 GB.10:00
ahoxth0r, thnx, however I am interested in the number of installed modules... I just found the command lshw, maybe this one is helpfull10:00
codebrainz__good_day_, it will all be for nothing if you're running the live system10:01
ipunkikonia:                         Intel 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller10:01
codebrainz__good_day_, probably easier just to reinstall using the Desktop CD10:01

umcguys, if I do a tail -f /var/log/messages, I get "rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" swVersion="4.2.0" x-pid="969" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"] rsyslogd was HUPed, type 'lightweight'". any idea what that means ? google didn't help10:03
pie_timeth0r, then how do i access this station ive accessed 5 times before with no problem?10:03
umcthat command lightweight doesn't exist10:04
__good_day_codebrainz: I got you, Instead of downloading desktop one, I have downloaded alternate iso image. Let me download the desktop and install again. Thank you a Lot..10:04
th0rpie_time: it is probably either busy or offline. Sometimes you can get in by trying several times, but sometimes the server is just offline10:04
__good_day_codebrainz: downloading http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso image now.10:05
datuneWhat's the preffered method to have a script execute on startup of a server?10:05
codebrainz__good_day_, yep, it should be much friendlier if you are kinda new10:05
codebrainzdatune, you can add a call to it in /etc/rc.local iirc10:06
datuneWhat if I write a script named FOO, which executes the real script, put that in /etc/init.d/ and then do update-rc.d FOO defaults, wouldn't that be a better option?10:08
codebrainzdatune, i guess, it depends what the script is doing and when you want it to run10:09
datunecodebrainz: It's a monitoring tool for MySQL Servers (called MONyog)10:10
codebrainzdatune, only reason i say rc.local is because it runs last afaik10:10
datunecodebrainz: Really, I just want to make sure that if the machine is rebooted, MONyog is started10:11
Naznazhi, I installed http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Ubuntu+sunrise+plymouth?content=129696 but it is only in greyscales on startup, what can I do about that?10:11

DjAngo23Any ideas guys ?10:16
chickamadeDr_Willis, it happens for other apt-*, aptitude or GUI10:16
Dr_Willischickamade:  i wonder if thers not a currupted file in /var/cache/apt10:16
chickamadeDr_Willis, it just got stuck at 50% and going nowhere10:16
ipunkikonia:                         Intel 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller10:17
Dr_Willischickamade:  you could clean out the files in /var/cache/apt BUT some of those are required for apt to work. so dont just delete them.10:17
Dr_Willisapt can get very mad if some of the dirs/files in /var/cache/apt are not there10:17

kalmosxDr_Willis: yeah, not sure what to do about that10:20
Dr_Williskalmosx:  i just add a video file source and look at the preview is all i did10:20
Dr_Williskalmosx:  use the system admin users tool and check the groups10:20

Dr_Williskalmosx:  select the user, advanced settings, theres a check box for video.10:21
Dr_Williskalmosx:  ive never actually had anyone connect to my webcam/webcamstudio. ive only watched the previews - so for all i know - it dosent work at all. :)10:22
Dr_Williskalmosx:  got to log out/back in to change the groups. Brb10:23
kalmosxDr_Willis: after adding myself, it still shows the message :/10:23
kalmosxah ok10:23
chickamadeDr_Willis, I moved pkgcache.bin to pkgcache.bin.bak, and apt-* seems happy BUT when I issue an install command it seemed to forget that coreutils, udev, and friends are installed10:23
kalmosxDr_Willis: i admire your patience and good will, goodnight :)10:24
chickamadeDr_Willis: not sure if I should continue10:24
chickamadeis there a way to tell APT to regenerate its cache?10:25
Naznazhi, I installed the splashscreen from http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Ubuntu+sunrise+plymouth?content=129696 but it is only in greyscales on startup, what can I do about that?10:26

ezrafreewhat should i do if i don't have a /etc/default/bluetooth ...should i just create one or is there something i should install?10:30
chickamadeDr_Willis, it seems /var/cache/apt/pkgcache.bin is corrupted, but if I moved it away, APT and dpkg would seem to lose all memory of installed pacakges10:30
Dr_Willischickamade:  yea. Not sure what to do.10:30
ikoniaError404NotFound: ok - it's still nothing to do with ubuntu10:30
Error404NotFoundikonia, may be if dns is hosted on an ubuntu box :P10:30

ct529hi guys!10:47
ct529I have some difficultie sin setting out an alternative outgoing server on evolution. Is that even possible? I have one server that I use in the office (the main one), but when I am at home I need to use a different one.10:47
NaznazI installed a spashsreen but that is only displayed in black/white on startup. What can I do about that?10:48
ikoniatasslehoff: your running 64bit10:48
ct529I cannot access any other outgoing server from the office (the block the protocol) and I cannot access the office server at home (again, the block the protocol)10:48
ct529any help?10:48
algnodHi, I would like to help test 10.10beta and I am running into some issues, is someone here who could help?10:49
Doylect529: talk to your office tech dept10:49
ct529Doyle: and say what?10:49
Doylect529: get some vpn action going10:49
itbcn8algnod: what sort of problems10:49
ct529Doyle: nope, it slows everything down10:49
ct529Doyle: I would like to configure an alternative outgoing server10:49
Doylect529: vpn is used to assure security. A company will not allow alternate connection methods to be employed. Read the IT policy I'm sure it's mentioned in there that any attempt to breach network security has severe repercussions10:50
ct529Doyle: I need to set up an alternative outgoing server when I use the laptop from home for personal use10:51
rwwalgnod: #ubuntu+1 is the channel for Maverick questions and support, try there :)10:51
ct529Doyle: it is fine with our IT department10:52
algnodthanks rww10:52
Doylect529: all access to your corporate network will have to be handled by the companies IT dept. If there's a sever involved get themt o set it up and tell you how to establish a connection.10:52
Doylect529: if you have a more specific question than how to connect to a corporate network from home...10:53
ct529Doyle: you did not read qhat I said .... I need to set up an alternative outgoing server when I use the laptop from home for PERSONAL use .... it is perfectly FINE with my IT department (I checked with them) .... there is only one simple technical question: hwo do I set up an alternative outgoing server in evolution under ubuntu 10.04?10:57
Doylect529: ok, lets try this again. I have issues with people trying to circumnavigate network security... years of compromised networks has made me freak out at the idea of it10:58
ct529Doyle: look, it is not a security issue .... it is the fact that I cannot find the way of configuring an alternative outgoing server on evolution in ubuntu 10.04 for personal use .... in what way is that related to a security issue????10:59
Baram2anyone know anything about the latest kernel update breaking logitech wireless mouse/keybards?10:59
Doylect529: What is the connection for? Mail primarily I assuem11:00
Baram2just updated kernel (to 2.6.32-24) on 10.04, now my logitech MX wireless mouse/keyboard will not function.  Pulling the USB key and putting back makes it prompt to grant/reject access to some long string of numbers... any idea what's going on?11:02
ct529Doyle: it is just an outgoing server (smtp) on evolution to send emails, my personal, private emails, that should not go through the company outgoing smtp server11:03
Doylect529: ok lovely. you have it's public ip address?11:03
boywonderwhat would live medium path be set to for gparted on usb?11:03
ct529Doyle: of whom?11:03
Doylect529: to connect to the company server you have to have either it's IP address or its web address11:04
Doylect529: it'll look something like or http://company.com/exchange or something11:05
ct529Doyle: I am saying I do NOT want to connect to the company's address .... I want to connect to an alternative smtp server, that I can choose when I send personal emails  .... exactly as it works in other email clients, like kmail!11:05
umc-workcan I disable everything that has to do with sound ? drivers, etc ? I don't use sound on a computer, and I want to check if that's causing problem with a general protection fault11:05
Doylect529: ok, so you have the server setup already, does it have an external ip address taht you can ping at home? If you're not going to be tunneling into the company network via vpn, it has to ahve a public ip address11:07
ct529Doyle: yes I have that11:07
Dr_Willisumc-work:  you could rmmod the sound card modules.11:07
Doylect529: and you have the username and password for the mailbox that's setup on the server?11:08
DoyleBaram2: huh? mouse?11:08
ct529Doyle: yep11:08
Doylect529: ok, can you ping the ip address?11:09
Doylect529: we'll start with the basics11:09
ct529Doyle: yep11:09
Baram2yes, updated kernel from repos, now my mouse and keyboard do not work11:09
Doylect529: ok, what happens when you plug in all the settings into your amil client exactly? Are you getting an error?11:09
Baram2a few times it prompted me to grant access for them, I did, it asked again, I did... now it doesn't ask and doesn't do anything11:09
DoyleBaram2: ah fun... just a minute11:09
Baram2looks just like this: http://www.uluga.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=145454911:10
umc-workDr_Willis: can that be reversed ? do you know any docs that explain how to do that ? I never dealt with stuff like this. I know the codek is Realtek ALC889A. it's an intel sound card11:10
ct529Doyle: nope, it happens that I have to set a completely new account, whilst I want to use it with the same account11:10
Baram2but their fix is talking about netbook remix and some omnibox(or something) module, neither of which I'm dealing with11:10
ct529Doyle: one account, two alternative smtp servers .... exactly as in kmail / kontatct11:11
MatsyI am having an issue while building kernel I'm doing make oldconfig && make prepare, but it's giving me the following erros:11:11
MatsyThe error the command make oldconfig && make prepare is giving me is as follows: make: *** No rule to make target `include/config/auto.conf', needed by `include/config/kernel.release'.  Stop.11:12
ct529Doyle: In the tab sending emails I only find the way on setting one smtp server for one account11:12
MatsyIt's a tad weird.11:12
sweetpict529: just add a new account without incoming server, only your alternate smtp server. then when you create mail just choose the "From" dropdown11:13
Doylect529: thats right, typically it's one account/one smtp server. You can add multiple accounts to an email client and setup folders for each, or dump all mail into one11:13
ct529Doyle: is thatv the only solution?11:13
NaznazI installed the splashscreen from http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=129696&forumpage=1 but it is only grey for me. Any idea?11:13
Doylect529: sweetpi 's suggestion is solid, if the program will accept it with empty fields11:13
sweetpict529: choose incoming server type "None"11:14
ct529Doyle: sweetpi: so evolution doe snot actually allow for alternative smtp servers in the same account? that is the reason why I did not find any documentation on google or on th evolution sever11:14

Baram2Doyle yeah... small problem there, ESC key on my keyboard is broken, can't get into GRUB menu11:17
DoyleBaram2: borrow a keyboard from a friend/neighbor when you have a chance11:17
Baram2doyle there's no work around on this at all?  I could just comment it out in the menu.lst11:17
ct529sweetpi: I actually did not argue, just asked a question .... does thunderbird allow for alternative smtp servers on the same account? I just migrated from KDE to GNOME becaus ethis is what everybody else was using, but I feel constrained by evolution11:18
DoyleBaram2: you can try putting in a line 'pci=noacpi' and see fi that helps11:18
snoy_msanyone can help me?11:18

sweetpict529: yeah I understand, I didnt mean you were trying to argue. But someone took it as you were trying to get around a firewall. I knew you wasnt, but I didnt know how to do it in evolution... now I do :)11:21
snoy_msDoyle: http://pastebin.com/NdsZ3rsK11:21
Baram2doyle you would think making sure keyboards and mice work would be a basic QA check before release :P11:21
ct529sweetpi: :-D .... what about thunderbird?11:21
Baram2doyle what else will pci=noacpi effect?11:21
DoyleBaram2: lol I know how you feel but they dont' have every piece of hardware to test with in development11:21
sweetpict529: thunderbird is basically the same way, except you have a list of outgoing servers and in the accounts you choose a default one11:22
DoyleBaram2: it disables the routing of acpi information on the system bus11:22
DoyleBaram2: Can't get into it, but sometimes it works magic11:22
Baram2doyle I tried two different wireless keyboards, by two very different manufacturers so... seems to be the same bluetooth issue that always crops up in a different manner, in the past it was simple enough to just unplug and replug11:22

snoy_msDoyle: same problem..... "GPG error:"11:26

mrbeanyI would like to disable all keyboard shortcuts, gnome, compiz, etc. Is there one program I can do this all from? And if not how could I go about it?12:30
Dr_Willisstreamtuner dosent seem to work right with Shoutcast any more. :(12:31
pfgmrbeany: system - prefrences - keyboard shortcuts , out of intrest why ?12:31
soreaumrbeany: If you did that, you wouldnt be able to even move, resize or focus your windows. What problem are you having exactly?12:31
mrbeanyI have kidz that dont understand shortcuts12:32
gryllidahow do I get a list of users of the os in cli?12:32
mrbeanythey are playing and game and then all of a sudden the computer starts shutting down or something12:32
pfgmrbeany: if there desktop users then just disable any real shortcuts they may screw up with and edit the main menu to remove system menu12:32
jribgryllida: depends on what exactly you want to do.  "ls /home" might be enough, if not, read /etc/passwd12:32
fubarbundymrbeany - you might need compiz-config-settings-manager to disable all of Compiz's shortcuts too...12:33
pfggryllida: type users12:33

fubarbundyAm I in the right channel to get some kind of expert help with GVFS?12:34
fubarbundymrbeany, from memory they're scattered across each plugin's keybinding tabs12:34

mrbeanyfubarbundy: thanks12:34
jribmrbeany: http://pastebin.com/08r39Vq2 is what I have in my ~/.gtkrc-2.0.  You could look into that (you'll have to read gtk docs).  You may be interested in gtk-enable-accels12:35
gryllidahow do I change user's password in cli?12:35
soreaumrbeany: Ubuntu made it to where you cant disable some plugins, like move, resize and decoration12:35
mrbeanyjrib: thanks will look into it12:36
headkase314gryllida, passwd command12:36
jribmrbeany: that basically disables the shortcuts you see in the menus (the underlined keys)12:36
mrbeanysoreau: I dont want to disable the plugins themselves, I just want to disable the shortcuts12:36
soreaumrbeany: then figure out whatever shortcut it is, then go to ccsm>preferences and click on the keyboard icon in the Filter box, then press the keybinding to see if its bound to anything in ccsm12:38

mrbeanysoreau: hmm.. I cant see it, in either preferences or advanced search. So I updated all the related packages and I still cant see it12:45
headkase314brakim, you're better off downloading the cd version.  The dvd version mainly has language packs that you don't really need.  The cd image can be burnt and booted from dvd media if that is all you have.12:45

brakimheadkase314 okey so its possible to burn a cd image to a dvd ? didnt know that12:49
headkase314brakim, yes it is ok.  I don't know 100% but it worked for me.12:49
stealth_Anyone able to help?12:49
jribstealth_: best to just ask the channel your actual question (on a single line)12:49
stealth_I did jrib mate. basically my USB headset will not work with amarok even though it will pick it up in the settings and play sounds through it.12:50
jribstealth_: only amarok?12:50
stealth_I been using this fine on youtube12:50
brakimheadkase314 but ubuntu-10.04-dvd-amd64.iso is the right version12:50
jribstealth_: check its preferences for some output options?12:50
stealth_jrib, I have, the USB headset it set to first12:50
hsrDr_Willis: There?12:51
jribstealth_: I think there's a #amarok, try that12:51
brendan-kdoes anybody know how often the irc logs are updated?12:51
stealth_ok mate12:51
headkase314brakim, for the dvd yes.  For the cd you would get the 64-bit from here -> http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download12:51
brendan-ki just disconnected and i would like to see was my question answered12:51
jribbrendan-k: there's a small delay, just check what the most recent entry is for the #ubuntu log12:51
jribbrendan-k: the last thing you said here was "the beta is ready ..."12:52
headkase314brakim, how much memory is in your system?  64-bit is most suited to systems that have 4GB or more of memory.12:54

hsrDr_Willis: I am using streamtuner now ...12:58
Dr_Willischeck its settings12:59
hsrDr_Willis: I can surmise that well but since i'm not able to find those settings particularly, i asked you :)13:00
Dr_Willistheres a directory setting i see.. thats about all i know on the topic.  I tend to use Tunapie13:00
hsrDr_Willis: Okay.. where in Tunapie?13:01
Dr_Willisthe logically named  'path to rip directory'13:01
stealth_Dont know if anyones here or able to answer my question but could anyone refer me to a guide to get ym USB headset working with amarok. It will work in the settings but it will not work at all when I try to play music out of it. I know there is a way to do it but cant find the guide. Anyone able to help? ( I tried #amarok and nobodys spoke for the last 3 hours so yeah)13:02
Dr_WillisThats the only directory setting Tunapie seems to have. :)13:02
Dr_Willisstealth_:  perhaps twiddle with the pulse audio settings13:03
hsrDr_Willis: yeah.. got that.. Thanks. But Unfortunately, i cannot add any radio stream as with streamtuner13:03
Dr_Willishsr:  learn the streamripper tool that both are using as a backend. then you dont need tunapie or streamtuner13:04

dhruvasagarin essence I want to hear exactly what is being recorded...how is that possible !?13:17
Elbadhruvasagar: I don't use Linux for stuff like that, so I dunno. My guess? You'd record it and then send it to the speakers. However, one should raise the question of why you want to do this13:17
hsrdhruvasagar: For whaT?13:17
pie_timebazhang, does gnomeappinstall have all the new programs?13:18

headkase314yakamo, during install where the installer asks whether you want to log on automatically or require a password there is a third option which creates an encrypted home folder.  Use that option and nobody will ever get your data if your laptop is lost/stolen.13:27

yakamoso it would encrypt that data as well13:30
yakamowhich would be much use to me on another device13:30
Dr_Willisyakamo:  its also mounted/syncned. so i doubt if it will get encrypted On the dropbox storage13:30
Dr_Willisyakamo:  but the encryption guide proberly mentions this.13:30
dhruvasagarThe only sol I have found so far is, I go to System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Visual Effect -> Select Extra, for which it takes 3-4 seconds and after that everything is normal...13:30
pie_timeerUSUL, people in debian told me you would need a kernel kept on an external media source for the encrypted system to be safe13:31
Dr_Willisif you mount a usb to /home/username/stuff and they have an encrypted home.. does the stuff on the usb get encrypted as well.....13:31

yoosefhi. ive been running ubuntu server 10.04 for a bit over month now. i use it as fileserver on my lan, its also running openssh-server. everything seems to work fine... but i think the server load averages are bit too high, for system only running samba & openssh-server. load avarages are anything between 1.00 - 1.20. most of the times its 1.00. got 4gb ram and pentium 2.8ghz installed.. any ideas what might cause that load?13:56

headkase314Whenever my wireless internet disconnects and tries to reconnect it eventually freezes the computer with vertical bars displayed and I must power cycle.  lshw for wireless -> http://pastebin.com/NsCrzSdN thinking it is a resource conflict I just did this -> http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9323832&postcount=1 (added model=acer to modprobe) and this gives me an additional microphone in my sound audio setting14:30
headkase314s.  So, is there anything else I can do or do I now wait to see if it freezes again?14:30
matrixbluebazhang, jrib: Point taken14:31
Keith_hey everyone here that can help me out?14:32
bazhangKeith_, ask a question14:32
matrixblueheadkase314: Which version of Ubuntu are you using?14:33
Keith_i am doing the switch over from windows 7 to ubuntu netbook, and i tred it twice and it wont work...14:33
sipiorheadkase314: it invariably freezes when you disconnect and then reconnect the wireless network? no other time?14:33
Keith_i am using the iso and saving it to the usb drive....but when i get to the screen to intsall it dowsnt move14:33
headkase314matrixblue, Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit with ppa:xorg-edgers/drivers-only enabled (my first attempt to fix the freezing) and everything else out of the box, just installed around 3 days ago.14:34
sipiorheadkase314: the fact that the video behaves strangely would seem to point to a deeper root cause. does the machine get especially hot?14:34
Keith_windows 7 starter isnt working for me14:34

Taios Hey guys - im having a seriously annoying mouse problem - tried asking on forums, tried lots of google and tried asking one of my Linux friends...basically, it's wireless and keeps randomly disconnecting and wont reconnect...but this does not happen in windows! <--- no-one any ideas?? Im doing CS at uni so really want to actually be able to use Ubuntu well!!14:34
matrixblueheadkase314: YOu should use the 32-bit edition unless you have more than 4 gigs of RAM14:34
headkase314sipior, it is dual boot with Vista and the other OS does not exhibit any issues when booted.14:34
Keith_yes i did follow them ijust and confused14:35
Arthur___i want to use eubuntu can i install the eubuntu desktop ? sudo apt-get install ????14:35
headkase314matrixblue, I know 32-bit is recommended but 64-bit gives 3-4% performance improvement at a cost of a small increase in storage requirements.14:35
sletzhi, which version of JACK is in Maverick? JACK1 or JACK2 ?14:35
jussiboth iirc14:36
bazhangArthur___, sudo apt-get install edubuntu-desktop14:36
bazhangsletz, try in #ubuntu+114:36
Arthur___ok its edubuntu dua thanks!14:36
matrixblueheadkase314: Understood but it could be a problem with incompatible drivers14:36
philinuxsletz: apt-cache policy jack14:36
philinux  Installed: (none)  Candidate: 3.1.1+cvs20050801-26 Version table:     3.1.1+cvs20050801-26 014:36
headkase314sipior, the freeze is always preceded by losing my wireless internet connection and then it trying to reconnect14:36
FloodBot1philinux: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.14:36
* philinux dont know how that happened14:37
headkase314matrixblue, the wireless drivers are built-in.  There are no drivers listed in "Hardware Drivers" and wireless works straight from install and in a live session as well.14:37
sipiorheadkase314: ah, so you're not turning off the connection. the loss of wireless is a symptom, not a cause. does anything interesting turn up in your logs that corresponds to the timing of the crashes?14:38
headkase314sipior, which log would you like me to pastebin?14:38
sipiorheadkase314: i'm not scrounging through your logs for you. have a look in /var/log/messages to start, and match the times up with when the machine was known to be behaving strangely.14:39
headkase314sipior, ok thanks.  Will look in that log now.14:39
sipiorheadkase314: also, does the machine always crash after a certain amount of time?14:40

headkase314sipior, I do not know what I am looking for in those logs.  I just modified my /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base and added the line: "options snd-hda-intel model=acer" and that gives me an additional microphone in my sound properties.  I did this because I think it is a resource conflict.  I came across that setting in an unrelated issue and have now reapplied it and I guess I'll just have to wait and see if my laptop fr14:43

headkase314Matthes, with Ubuntu 10.04 the X-server has changed enough that you cannot use AMD/Ati legacy drivers which is what you would need for an X1300.  So, you must use the Open-Source drivers that are built-in when you install or go back to an older version of Ubuntu.15:29

rockhopperhisto, is upgrading from 10.04 better or installing the fresh 10.10 beta better?15:32
headkase314Matthes, you can also do: "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/drivers-only" then "sudo apt-get update" "sudo apt-get upgrade".  But if you do this you may occasionally run into a broken driver.  That repository is bleeding-edge open-source drivers.15:32

headkase314!maverick | Diehard15:42
ubottuDiehard: Maverick Meerkat is the codename for Ubuntu 10.10, due October 2010 - Maverick is Not released and Not Stable, discussion and support in #ubuntu+115:42
PsychiCBluesKaj, /dev/sda8 is ubuntu root15:42
BluesKajwhat about grub is it showing up listing the OSs , I don't understand why you keep referring to the the dev partitions15:44
sniperjodoes anyone know the minimum spec needed for vlc to play SD video ?15:44
PsychiCBluesKaj, grub shows all the OS'ses , ubuntu, memtest, winxp, winxp, debian15:44
BluesKajPsychiC, did you install windows after linux was installed ?15:45
PsychiCBluesKaj, no, ubuntu was last15:45
BluesKajPsychiC, you have a lot of partitions and it keeps booting windows and ignoring your choices , is that correct?15:46
TxMattat&t need to get some linux techs15:46
PsychiCBluesKaj, it only ignores which winxp I choose, it will boot ubuntu and debian. Both winxp lines will boot winxp on /dev/sda2.15:47
tom][vIn fact while I'm here: anyone know how can I fix this error: sudo apache2ctl graceful; "apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName" (thanks :-)15:48

dotblankMy WM is completely messed up.. windows don't redraw themselve correctly, don't minimize or switch desktops15:49
ChogyDantom][v: I've had that for ages, but I don't use my webserver at all.  I suspect that it is just a minor misconfig that can be ignored15:49
dotblankalso when a new window pops up it is under existing windows15:49
Silivrenionhey there. I'm trying to ping my windows computer on the network from a neighboring ubuntu computer, and can't seem to locate the correct hostname for it15:50
ChogyDandotblank: when did this start happening?15:50
azexianhey, having problem playing a hd film on my machine, bit weird, video plays perfectly with mplayer, but no sound. On vlc I get sound, but the video is so jumpy it's unwatchable, any ideas?15:50
Silivrenionwindows -> ubuntu names work, but the other way i'm having difficulty15:50
webushi! i have a problem in boot process on ubuntu. when system startup sometimes my keyboard and mouse doesn't work. i push power button and ubuntu reboot after 60 secs.15:50
dotblankChogyDan, hard to remember.. its been going on a while now15:50
Silivrenioni've tried, for example, ping hostname, ping \\workgroup\hostname, and all come up unreachable, but pinging the IP address works15:51
dotblankChogyDan, I did install nvidia's latest with a ppa15:51
gschweppwebus: are they plugged in directly or over an kvm switch?15:51
tom][vChogyDan: ok, thanks.15:51
Silivrenionam I missing something?15:51
webus<gschwepp> directly, ps/215:51
dotblankChogyDan, I don't think that did it tho15:51
ChogyDandotblank: maybe you should disable compiz15:51
gschweppwebus: im just interested because i get sometimes the problem while using kvm switch.15:51
dotblankhmm interesting...15:51
PsychiCBluesKaj, could it be something to do with --fs-uuid ?15:51
gschweppwebus: didnt really find a answer to that question sorry15:52
dotblankChogyDan, I went to disable it and it says mutter isn't running15:52
tjubalaubasoreau, Dr_Willis: Thanx for the geany proposal... instant love!15:52
dotblankand I can't enable / disable anything15:52
BluesKajPsychiC, open /boot/grub/grub.cfg , check to see whether your first partition is listed15:52
tjubalauba...some hours late15:52
ChogyDanSilivrenion: I don't think the hostname like that is pingable15:52
webus<gschwepp> if i push num lock button in boot process everyting ok.  i think ubuntu can't see my keyboard and mouse if they inactive in boot process15:52
soreautjubalauba: tep15:52
drdozerHi - I'm having trouble with ubuntu 10.10 - which room do I ask in?15:52

BluesKajPsychiC, or /dev/sda1 equivalent15:53
dotblankChogyDan, let me get you a screen cap15:53
PsychiCBluesKaj, lemme try to post it @ pastie.org15:53
azexianhey, having problem playing a hd film on my machine, bit weird, video plays perfectly with mplayer, but no sound. On vlc I get sound, but the video is so jumpy it's unwatchable, any ideas?15:53
simplexiotom][v: that ".. servers name.." i there because your hosts file , dns server give different name than some apache config file. and i have too , dosnt cause any problems ( that im aware f)15:54
erdnaseI get an error when I try to save a .jpg file using GIMP. It says:... nevermind, I tried to save it again and it worked. >_> Weird.15:54
dotblankChogyDan, http://imgur.com/uoXdf.png15:54
erdnaseBut it tells me something about the memory and the plugin.15:54
ChogyDandotblank: is this lucid?15:54
dotblankChogyDan, yes15:55
SilivrenionChogyDan, it's pingable, because IP address pinging works15:55
ChogyDandotblank: I would try removing the nvidia stuff, myself.  Thought... I wonder what mutter is15:55
BluesKajPsychiC, brb , upgradinq to maverick requires reboot15:55
dotblankChogyDan, I needed nvidia latest to run sc2 in wine15:56
Silivrenionthe issue I have is that I don't know how ubuntu formats hostnames for a given windows network resource15:56
ChogyDanSilivrenion: maybe try smb:// or something15:56
ChogyDandotblank: well, it is easy enough to reinstall, and if removing works, at least you have narrowed down the issue15:57
dotblankChogyDan, I tried running mutter --replace15:57
Silivrenionit's not restricted to samba... this is a problem mostly for synergy2, since i need a valid hostname. I can see the windows machine in ubuntu's samba enumerator, but i just can't find the hostname >.<15:57
dotblankit seem to sorta work15:57
dotblankbut now I get Window manager warning: Missing composite extension required for compositing15:57
ChogyDandotblank: what is mutter?15:57
keith2Question: Updated some packages this morning, and my shut off button I pinned on the taskbar became unusable. I deleted and pinned it again, but I wonder what caused it, anyone know?15:58
dotblankChogyDan, no idea seems to be a WM15:58
Karen_mwith debian-archive-keyring being updated, nothing is funky eh with any repo?15:58

dotblankChogyDan, Wow that was odd16:00

dotblankMy whole WM exploded16:00

ricdangerfreenx / remote access16:08
MaybeDrunkricdanger: you right, and also gdmsetups seems to be useless in this situation16:08
PsychiCBluesKaj, thats what I figured out so far ;)   I guess it's because I used the same winxp install for both.... i've read i might have to use labels....will try that tonight16:09
PsychiCBluesKaj, but many thanks anyway :)16:09
ricdangerI already tried policykit policies, but they are not working for restart and shutdown16:09
