WeldonHey guys... I installed ubuntu 10.04 on a windows box a week ago and couldn't figure out why I couldn't access an NTFS volume.  I'm thinking now that it's because it is dynamic, composed of a number of disks.  Are there any documents pointing out how to make this accessible to my linux installation?  Any help greatly appreciated!03:20
phoenix_does pulseaudio use alsa03:22
EagleScreenI think yes03:26
DragnslcrWeldon- that probably isn't specific to Kubuntu, so you might try asking in #ubuntu (where there are more people than here)03:26

=== N|ghtWo|f is now known as Guest69765
noaXessMamarok: hey.. wasup? kexi? any link?08:38
MamaroknoaXess: well, Kexi is the default database frontend for KDE, it's in the repos08:38
noaXessaha.. ok.. see..08:39
Mamarokbut of course you need to build the database yourself08:39
Mamarokit can't know beforehand what you need08:39
Mamarokmy brother runs a spare parts departement in a big garage and they use MySQL08:39
noaXesshm. the problem is, that i need a software that has a default inventory of car spare parts ;).. there are solutions for windows.. but.. linux.. i haven't found any.. here is what the customer uses now.. http://www.birner.at/ don't look to strong to the webpage layout.. uaaaa08:40
frogonwheelsMikieTimT:  xrandr08:40
MamaroknoaXess: if it is a MySQL database, it can be used in Linux, the database itself is what matters08:40
Mamarokaka the "default inventory" is a database08:41
noaXessMamarok: i know.. but i don't know that they won't give the data without costs..08:41
Mamarokso if it is a MSAccess database you of course need to export that to SQL first08:41
MamaroknoaXess: so you really expect to get the database for free? Do you only have an idea how much work is behind that? I guess thwy want at least some invenstment back08:42
Mamaroksuch data is never for free08:42
noaXessMamarok: i know.. but much work to get it into any other frontend..08:42
MamaroknoaXess: once you know the database structure, you can nbuild a frontend, frontend are always adaptable08:43
noaXessMamarok: it's not the plan to get the data for free.. but the data need to be compatible..08:43
Mamarokand easy to make, but you need the database structure08:43
noaXessso.. we will look forward for that..08:43
Mamarokwell, if it is SQL it is adaptable08:43
Mamarokif it is Access or Oracle you can forget about08:44
Mamarokthere are exporting tools, but it is usually a lot of work08:44

Artie_EphemHi all, can anyone tell me how to change an expired password for a user (I essentially locked myself out...duh) - I came up in recovery mode and blanked out the password field in /etc/shadow, but I still can't log in as that user, still says password expired - I'm suspecting there's another security file somewhere that is preventing me from logging in17:23
muesliArtie_Ephem: login in recovery mode17:25
DarthFrogArtie_Ephem: Reboot into recovery mode.17:25
muesliArtie_Ephem: do "passwd username"17:26
DarthFrogLike he says. :-)17:26
Artie_Ephemok, I think I tried that last night too, set the passwd for the user then tried to login but got the same message - I'll try again but won't be able to until later this afternoon - but is there any other files you know of that I'm missing?17:30
akSeyaArtie_Ephem: you can also try a passwd <username> -u17:31
akSeyabut "sudo passwd <username> <newpassword>" should work fine17:32
DarthFrogArtie_Ephem: You could also try using the "chage" command.  i.e "change age".17:33
Artie_EphemI also tried to be sneaky and change the date in the bios, but they system wouldn't even come up enough for me to get a command prompt in recovery mode17:35
Artie_Ephemok great, thanks all, I'll try your suggestions this afternoon and let you know how I make out17:37

v3nd3tta``hey guys, i got a problem with my filesystems and partitons. 2 have the same uuid but in gparted they show up with different spaces and other specialities18:14
v3nd3tta``kubuntu 10.04 , no upgrade, but formatted ntfs drives a time ago18:14
ubottugparted is a !GTK/!Gnome !GUI partitioning program. Type « sudo apt-get install gparted » in a console to install it - A GParted "live" CD is available at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php18:15
DarthFrogv3nd3tta``:  You can use gparted, whichis a GNOME app.  Or partitionmanager, which is the KDE app.18:17
v3nd3tta``yeah i have gparted18:17
DarthFrogv3nd3tta``: They're both frontends to the parted program.18:17
v3nd3tta``but /dev/sda9 and /dev sda6 have same uuid18:17
v3nd3tta``how does that happen DarthFrog and how can i be sure which partition is which?18:18
v3nd3tta``^^ sudo blkid of both partitions18:19
v3nd3tta``label: "oldhome" is mounted as "/home"18:19
DarthFrogNow that's cute.  How did you get them to have the same UUID? :-)18:19
v3nd3tta``idk but i also have a problem with 2 kde profiles of my desktop18:20
DarthFrogCan you mount them separately?  Do they have different contends?18:20
v3nd3tta``uhm i cannot mount the 2nd one label: home18:20
v3nd3tta``it does it automatically, even random18:20
DarthFrogI'm not following you.18:20
v3nd3tta``sometimes i have to reboot because 1 profile is older than the other18:21
v3nd3tta``kk it seems like "label: home" (with no mount point) is booting randomy the copied profile18:21
DarthFrogOK, gotcha.  Well, it's fairly easy to solve.18:21
v3nd3tta``but "label: oldhome" (with MountPoint: /home) has the right profile i think18:22
DarthFrogAs root, edit the /etc/fstab file and change the filesystem record for /home from "UUID=" to "/dev/sda9"  or sda6, if you prefer.18:23
v3nd3tta``if i do sudo mount /dev/sda9 then /home has the contents of the old /home i don't want to have18:24
v3nd3tta``should i format /dev/sda9 ?18:24
DarthFrogDo a backup of its contents first, in case you've made a mistake and have confused which partition is holding which date.18:25
DarthFrogThen format it.18:25
v3nd3tta``so sudo mount /dev/sda9 and copy every data :)18:25
v3nd3tta``oooh looul18:26
v3nd3tta``dolphin says it's the old content18:26
v3nd3tta``i mean18:26
v3nd3tta``the actual content18:26
v3nd3tta``but if i do ls ~18:26
v3nd3tta``it shows the one i don't want18:26
DarthFrogYeah.  "sudo mkdir /save_my_ass".  "sudo mount /dev/sda9 /mnt/disk"  "rsync -avv --progress /mnt/disk /save_my_ass"18:27
v3nd3tta``how do i copy per console everything?18:27
v3nd3tta``a complete dir?18:27
DarthFrogRsync is your friend.18:27
v3nd3tta``mount point /mnt/disk doesnt exist18:29
rorkor `cp -R dirname`18:29
DarthFrogYou can use "cp -a <old dir> <new dir>" also but rsync is better.18:29
DarthFrogv3nd3tta``: sudo mkdir /mnt/disk18:29
v3nd3tta``omg so much unuseful stuff18:31
v3nd3tta``nepomuk -.-18:31
v3nd3tta``nepomuk database... needed veeery long :O18:31
v3nd3tta``.q3a/baseq3/pak0.pk3 :P18:31
v3nd3tta``so now it copied all18:49
v3nd3tta``now should i format /dev/sda9 ?18:49
v3nd3tta``DeathFrog ?18:50
DarthFrogIs it currently mounted?18:51
DarthFrogThen you won't be able to format it.18:51
v3nd3tta``uhm how to unmount per console command?18:52
DarthFrogYou'll have to unmount it first.18:52
DarthFrogumount /dev/sda918:52
DarthFrogthat's not a mispelling, BTW.18:52
DarthFrogsudo umount /dev/sda918:52
v3nd3tta``umount: cannot umount /dev/sda9 -- /dev/sda6 is mounted over it on the same point.18:52
v3nd3tta``arg i hate that18:52
DarthFrogRight, I expected that.18:52
DarthFrogNot yet.  Do the /etc/fstab editing I told you to do earlier.18:53
v3nd3tta``but there is no "label" "home"18:53
v3nd3tta``it's not even mounted18:54
v3nd3tta``i can give you my fstab output18:54
v3nd3tta``in paste18:54
DarthFrogMake sure that it's /dev/sda6 that is mounted and that /dev/sda9 is not mounted.  make sure that /dev/sda6 contains the real /home data that you wish to preserve.18:54
v3nd3tta``should i?18:54
DarthFrogI have to leave very soon, BTW.18:54
v3nd3tta``uhm now reboot and then format?18:55
DarthFrogIf you want and if you're sure that the correct partition is mounted on /home.18:55
v3nd3tta``my fstab, nothing of my /sda9 :)18:56
v3nd3tta``kk see ya, if i'm not online in 5 mins i got a livecd-problem :)18:56
DarthFrogIt's the "UUID=<uuid>" that's the problem.18:56
DarthFrogChange it to:18:56
DarthFrog /dev/sda6  /home     ext4    defaults 0    218:57
v3nd3tta``kk see ya18:57

real_atehi guys. i'm having an issue and was hoping someone here could help me out! I installed kubuntu-desktop after installing (vanilla) ubuntu22:04
real_atebut now I can't shutdown from Kubuntu22:05
real_ateand when I click "Switch User" it just locks screen and doesn't actually allow me to switch users22:05
real_ateThe only way I could figure out how to switch user was to run gnome-panel and use that to switch users22:06
real_ate... but obviously this is not the ideal solution22:06
real_ateanyone know how I can enable the shutdown button and make it so that I can switch users ?22:07

Artie_EphemHi all, I'm trying to get my user account active again - it appears the password isn't the problem, but the fact that the account is now showing as expired. when I ran chage -l --<user>, it indicated that my account had expired yesterday, which would explain why I can't login... so I tried chage -E --expiredate 2012-12-31 <user> but it just comes back with the help menu. any suggestions?23:02
