Pertheriahey, with 10.10, is there a known issue where the workspace switcher doesnt show the preview? I thought in all the previous versions it was on by default?00:00
Pertheria(so you can see if something in window changed by glancing at taskbar's mini-icons )00:00
Pertheriaand it is already added to the bar, so dont need to add workspace00:02

RBeckerok, I gotta go eat, bbs00:13
Pertheriais there any simple reason why installing the ati driver from ubuntu software center would give a kernel includes do not match current kernel, they are versioned as "" instead of 2.6.34-22-generic ?00:13
Pertheria(and fail obviously)00:14
Pertheriaactually, error is that utsrelease.h no exist00:15
sevenseekerhowdy folks, just wanted to say something that is not said enough... great work guys, I had some probs, got help, fixed, and I have an AWESOME system, thanks again00:19
Pertheriacome make my system work seven:P00:20
sevenseekerheh :)00:20
sevenseekerwhat probs you having?00:20
Pertheriacant install ati drivers, neither ones from ati's site, nor from software tool.. the compile/installer complains that kernel include versions arent set00:21
Pertheriathey are blank00:21
Pertheriaso the driver wont install hehe00:22
sevenseekersame here, I just am using the OSS radeon drivers for now00:22
sevenseekerthat required me to completely uninstall fglrx*00:22
Pertheriaoh fun00:22
sevenseekernot bad really00:22
sevenseekerthey take up uneeded space if not utilized00:23
sevenseekerdpkg -l | grep -i fglrx00:23
sevenseekerthat will tell you what is installed btw00:23
Pertheriathanks :)00:23
sevenseekernp, btw, what ati card do you have?00:23
sevenseekerok, mine is the 465000:24
sevenseekeryou may not get 3d with a 5k series00:24
sevenseekerbut you should have normal 2d resolutions00:24
sevenseekerhonestly I wouldn't recommend 3d anyway, even with the latest gl extensions (mesa) installed, I get a lot of screen nastiness in fullscreen opengl apps (like Glest)00:25
Pertheriai was just wanting to play with compiz, which requires 3d :)00:25
sevenseekerATI is working on the kernel compat issues, so by 10.10 release I am told it will be bueno00:25
sevenseeker:( sorry, me too00:25
sevenseekercompiz is the shiznit lol00:25
Pertheriai've never used it00:26
DaekdroomAll I wanted 3D for is light gaming00:26
Pertheriaah well, thats what we get for playing around with a beta i guess :)00:26
sevenseekervery true, very true00:26

leeb9972hi folks, anyone help me, ive upgraded to 10.10 and now get black login screen :(15:38
bullgard4leeb9972: Can you access a virtual terminal?15:39
leeb9972i had ati driver for dual monitors on 10.4, can this be the prob?15:40
bullgard4leeb9972:  Yes it can.15:40
leeb9972hmm, any ideas on how to fix15:40
bullgard4leeb9972: I would suggest that you read the dmesg output.15:40
leeb9972sorry n00b here, how do i get that15:41
leeb9972i do startx and i get lots of errors15:42
bullgard4leeb9972: In a virtual terminal: '~$ dmesg > dmesg.log20100921'. Then '~$ more dmesg.log20200921'. Read it for error messages and warnings. If you cannot find them, nopaste this file in a nopaste service.15:43
bullgard4fpr attention to would-be helpers15:44
bullgard4leeb9972: You should also nopaste the contents of the file /var/log/Xorg.1.log for attention of would-be helpers.15:46
leeb9972i cant15:46
leeb9972accessing here via laptop15:47
leeb9972PC is not working15:47
bullgard4leeb9972: Why can you not?15:47
leeb9972only have terminal access on pc15:48
leeb9972big black terminal screen15:48
leeb9972covers whole desktop15:48
bullgard4leeb9972:  The PC is the culprit?15:48
bullgard4leeb9972:  All the operations which I suggested , you can perform on a virtual terminal of your PC.15:49
leeb9972nope sorry15:49
leeb9972thinks i reinstall 10.4 :(15:49
bullgard4leeb9972:  Why are you sorry?15:50
leeb9972lol, u can probably fix, but im a ubuntu n00b15:50
bullgard4leeb9972:  But I have given you the commands almost literally.15:51
leeb9972yep, lots off errors15:51
leeb9972i get Gtk-Warning **: cannot open display15:51
bullgard4leeb9972: What is the first error message on the virtual terminal?15:51
bullgard4leeb9972: Is the first error message on the virtual terminal this " Gtk-Warning **: cannot open display"?15:52
leeb9972i get ~$: command not found15:53
bullgard4leeb9972: "command not found" seems to be an answer to a command that you typed in. What command did you type in?15:54
leeb9972~$ more dmseg.log2010092115:55
bullgard4leeb9972: Replace dmseg with dmesg.15:57
leeb9972Maybe because i have uk keyboard etc15:57
leeb9972same error15:59
bullgard4leeb9972: Your PC seemed to work with Ubuntu 10.04. If so, I have no doubt that your present trouble is not due to you UK keyboard.15:59
leeb9972same error ~$: command not found15:59
leeb9972i will re-install 10.416:00
leeb9972lol, hope this problem will not happen when 10.10 is finally released16:01
Slasher`lol, i might have to go back to 10.04 myself soon16:03
Slasher`can't get xvid to play even with vlc16:03
bullgard4I believe that Ubuntu 10.10 in its present configuration will not change much until official Ubuntu 10.10 relase next month.16:03
leeb9972ill reinstall 10.4 then upgrade without installing ati driver16:03
Slasher`did you get xvid to play?16:03

benstedon't find anything in synaptic which could help getting my FN keys working again17:23
benstedid my message arrive in the channel (sometimes my IRC just keeps the messages for his own)17:25
traskmindbenste, I see your message, I can do a quick apt search for you if you like?17:25
benstetraskmind: you can check yours - but I've already checked mine :-(17:26
traskmindbenste, ah, I see. Probably been removed then :(17:26
benstewhy the h*** - this would cause every Sony Laptop not to work properly17:26
benste-- is there some kind of log where I can get more informations about this ?17:27
benstetraskmind: I remember someone over @GPM fixed a bug in gnome-power just to work together with Sony laptops - and now i can't even use my keys ??17:27
traskmindbenste, hm, I'm not sure. Possibly Google for solutions?17:29
benstethat's what I'm already doing for some time now17:29
traskmindI saw multiple results for just "sony-laptop ubuntu". Possibly you could install an old sony-laptop package by hand?17:30
benstetraskmind: FN Keys on Vaios with Nvidia brightness were in issue since my first ubuntu installation back in 200517:30
benste- installing another package isn't a solution as maverick should aim to support as much hardware as possible17:30
benstemaybe someone else here will know more about this special problem17:31
maxbOK, wtf? Something modified my /etc/hosts file after I upgraded to maverick, rewriting the localhost lines to include the hostname of the computer. I modified it back. Something has now REAPPLIED THE BREAKAGE?!?!17:31
traskmindI agree that the package should be included (if it still works with everything else in Maverick, of course) but installing an old version might help you out temporarily.17:31
benstetraskmind: strange even the sny module seems to be remove17:34
benstesomeone else here using a VAIO or knowing how to reenable FN keys in maverick ?17:38

philsfbenste, my Fn keys stopped working in lucid, but they've all come back in maverick17:43
philsfbenste, I have an Asus, though17:43
benstephilsf: which vaio ?17:43
benste-- ausus is something completly different17:43
philsfjust wondering if it might be related17:43
jaapzBenste, no i was just googling on vaio in ubuntu and found this: https://launchpad.net/~sony-vaio-z-series17:43
philsfbenste, try an older kernel image17:44
benstejaapz: vaio z's main problem is related to the pre nvidia optimus technology they're using, my vaio doesn't have anything special except the combination of Vaio FNs and Nvidia card which is the badest one i know on the market17:47
bensteat least for linux17:47
benstephilsf: i don't know whether it's really kernel realted, i remember having a package in lucid and pre called sony-laptop17:48
benstethis one use to enable the keys17:48
benstejaapz: I'll report a new bug against X and ask the Zseries list for help on this one too17:48
philsfbenste, my lucid install had functioning Fn keys with the first kernels, then an upgrade took away most of the Fn keys (this included volume and sleep)17:49
philsfbenste, I'm almost sure it was a kernel upgrade, but it might be someting else. just tipping you in the direction I might look17:50
benstephilsf: strange thing, my lucid one is still working17:50
jaapzbenste, it does relate to the kernel, as the sony-laptop package just installed some modules, or modified, or whatever17:50
benstephilsf: did you open a bug report ?17:50
philsfbenste, yes, but as you said, asus and sony use different quirks. I just assumed all of those are controlled by the kernel17:50
philsfbenste, I didn't bother, since none of my missing Fn keys were critical17:51

lapionsomeone really most definitively killed off i915 driver load for i855-xorg18:14
lapionBeta version i915 works just fine, latest update i915 is totally disabled18:15
lapionsomeone forgot to leave a window open for i8xx chipsets with patch   * debian/patches/206_intel_8xx_default_to_fbdev.patch:18:15
andyccm1ke_l: Unity is in beta. It also probably uses Clutter. So yes, it's slow. What are your hardware specs?18:15
leeb9972anyone know how i can get dual monitors set up on 10.10, i have ati card18:15
m1ke_li totally agree and understand that, honestly do.   this is a netbook atom n2790 cpu18:15
lapionin the meanwhile the beta disc i855 was allready working perfectlty, and did not seem to need a blacklisting18:15
m1ke_lgnome runs just fine, which points to a unity "issue"18:15
andyccleeb: maybe system > preferences > monitor18:16
andycc*leeb9972: ^18:16
leeb9972doh! lol, thank you .....18:16
m1ke_lthanks andycc, i'll just mark it up as "beta" software and try again in a few weeks18:18

DoubleStringis anyone also getting the same problem with tray icons?18:30
uzi__DoubleString: what problem?18:30
ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.18:30
DoubleStringon 10.04, XChat, Skype and Evolution had their tray icons, now upgraded, there's no more tray icons18:31
DoubleStringAND when I close them, they don't close themselves, therefore need killall them18:31

MTecknologyIf I'm not worried about data loss, what options will give me the best performance for ext4 when I'm compliling and moving around thousands of small files19:50
andyccMTecknology: I think ReiserFS is better suited for that.19:50
Jordan_Uandycc: Reiserfs has been dyning ever since Hans was convicted though.19:51
MTecknologyandycc: really? I thought reiserfs was slow but good for batter life (just from my experience with using it on a laptop)19:51
MTecknologyJordan_U: He was innocent!19:52
andyccMTecknology: reiserfs is known for good performance with lots of small files and bad performance with few large ones.19:52
* MTecknology quotes OJ trials19:52
MTecknologyany options I could try with ext4 for my other stuff?19:52
MTecknologyand /home ?19:52
MTecknologyI've always used defaults19:53
andyccI think K.Mandla posted something about that a long time ago.19:53
andyccHere you go: http://kmandla.wordpress.com/projects/set-up-ubuntu-for-speed/#ext319:54

MichealHfusion44: Trythe repos20:11
MichealHThat MAY be your issue20:11
Jordan_Ufusion44: Problems like you described are usually caused by driver bugs, but at the same time nvidia's drivers are usually pretty good. I agree that you should try the packaged drivers, and if they have the same problem see if you can reproduce the problem with another compositing WM like compiz.20:12
fusion44I'll propabyl have to uninstall the driver first before I reinstall them from the repository?20:15

FloridaGuyim useing ubuntu 10.04...running update-manager -d to upgrade to ubuntu 10.10..but im geting this message....  http://img844.imageshack.us/f/screenshotfv.png/20:33
andyccFloridaGuy: well, maybe it's caused by "Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu".20:35
andyccFloridaGuy: I suggest you wait until 10.10 goes final. In the mean time, do a clean install of the beta in another partition or in a VM if you want to test it.20:36
FloridaGuyandycc, so your saying cant do like i do in mandriva....go from stable to the testing releases20:37
pietro10After upgrading to 10.10 g++ is now giving me the following warning]20:37
pietro10or something20:37
pietro10ambiguous else after if, suggest braces20:38
andyccFloridaGuy: you can, but it's not guaranteed to work. Actually, it's more like guaranteed to not work. You'll get a lot of problems and bugs.20:38
pietro10however every time it happens, it's a false positive20:38
pietro10since there ARE braces20:38
pietro10is this a known bug or not?20:38
andycc!error | pietro1020:38
ubottupietro10: Please elaborate, your question or issue may not seem clear or detailed enough for people to help you. Please give more detailed information, errors, steps, and possibly configuration files (use the !pastebin to avoid flooding the channel)20:38
FloridaGuyandycc, how do i find out why it wont upgrade thow20:39
pietro10andycc: I want to know if the above problem I have (gcc warnings showing up when they shouldn't) is a known bug yet or not20:40
pietro10if { if(x)y(); } else z(); makes g++ warn me about "ambiguous else"20:41
andyccFloridaGuy: run apt-get dist-upgrade or something from a terminal.20:41
pietro10this only happened AFTER the 10.10 upgrade, so I assume it's a change made by the 10.10 maintainers20:41
andyccpietro10: Well, from my knowledge of C/C++, I guess g++ wants you to use "else { z(); }" instead of "else z();", or something.20:42
FloridaGuysudo apt-get dist-upgrade.....  0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.20:42
andyccOr maybe it asks you to indent your code. It's an ambiguous error message.20:43
andyccFloridaGuy: OK, not really. First, do you have important data on that 10.04 install?20:43
FloridaGuyandycc, no20:43
pietro10andycc: meh20:44
pietro10also I use strict K&R20:44
pietro10it's not a big problem anyway; it just doubles the # of warnings I usually have20:44
andyccFloridaGuy: open /etc/apt/sources.list with gedit, nano or something (sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list);20:45
andyccFloridaGuy: and replace all occurrences of "lucid" with "maverick"20:45
andyccFloridaGuy: then, sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade20:45
andyccFloridaGuy: no guarantees though.20:45
FloridaGuyandycc, copy and paste maverick in place of lucid20:46
andyccyes, replace lucid with maverick20:46
andyccyou might also have other files under /etc/apt/sources.list.d20:46
andyccyou should probably replace lucid with maverick in those too.20:47
andycc...and now I'm going to bed. FloridaGuy, hope it works.20:49
FloridaGuyapt-get dist-upgrade told me the problem.....   The following packages have unmet dependencies:  libdrm-nouveau1: Breaks: xserver-xorg-video-nouveau (< 1:0.0.16) but 1:0.0.15+git20100219+9b4118d-0ubuntu5 is to be installedE: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.20:49

Pici-d is for upgrading to the latest development release.20:53
OverHelsingI am with problems in Default audio mixer.20:53
OverHelsingSomeone can help? Its not working.20:54
duffydackPici, both method would work though right?20:55
Piciduffydack: You shouldn't really continue to use '-d' once you've upgraded to the development release.20:55
duffydackbut showing normal release in update manager will show maverick ?20:56
duffydacklike, now20:56
duffydackits lts only with lucid isnt it20:57
Piciduffydack: Are you on Maverick already?20:57
duffydackI`m dual boot.. its FloridaGuy that wants to20:57
duffydackreplacing lucid with maverick in sources.list is a bad idea.. so I just suggested alternatives20:57
PiciYes, I agree that its a bad idea.20:58
PiciUse update-manager -d or do-release-upgrade -d   instead.20:58
FloridaGuyi uninstalled the package that was giving trouble so see what happens now21:02
duffydackFloridaGuy, dude, really woul be better to use update-manager -d21:03
FloridaGuyduffydack, thats what im useing21:04
duffydackdist-upgrade after changing your sources to maverick ?21:04
FloridaGuyduffydack, what the 1st guy said to do..showed me what was causing the problem21:05
duffydackusing update-manager properly will take care of any dependencies and removal of packages...  dont replace lucid with maverick in apt and dist-upgrade.21:06
FloridaGuyduffydack, useing update-manager -d21:06
FloridaGuyand it works now21:06
FloridaGuyduffydack, i had this problem....

* gnomefreak not sure what "broke" means21:22
Some_PersonNo sound playing, despite it not being muted and the volume all the way up21:22
volodya_Some_Person: if you run pavucontrol, and play music, do you see level monitor showing anything. (Select output devices tab, of course)21:28
volodya_Some_Person: I assume you use pulse as audio level21:29
Some_PersonWhere is this "level monitor"?21:30
DanaGhmm, compiz ppa has 0.9.0 compiz with 0.8.2 ccsm.21:36

Some_PersonRhythmbox isn't working at all (playing something doesn't advance past 0:00)21:42
gnomefreakthere should be a progress line(wrong word) it should pulse to the music just under the silence max line21:42
Some_PersonWell, it isn't there21:43
gnomefreakSome_Person: does it work if you change the internal audio analog... to use amplifier?21:43
gnomefreakassuming it is a choice21:44
Some_PersonI don't see any "amplifier" setting21:44
gnomefreakif not try another output device (\audio port)21:44
Some_PersonAll 3 choices (Analog Speakers, Analog Output, and Analog Headphones) produce the same results21:45
gnomefreaki only have ampilfier in the drop down, most likley since i am using only 1 output device21:45
