kellnolamyrmidon, you can. But normally, when you close the terminal, or more properly the shell, it closes it's child processes00:06
Gneaopr: what steps have you taken, so far, to get the proxy to work with apt?00:06

scott_inoMrStein, just tried it again, no issues.... even ran a few commands in VT100:34
Scunizisuweid: wow.. so it must come in via fiber or something.. well. I really don't know I'm sorry to say.. you might ask your ISP about that .. if others are having the same problems then it might be their issue and not yours00:34
Monikamaco: thanks, found it \o/00:34
korisnik____ok, im googleing long time now, Flare183 , gonna see there, but tbh, there was too much work into this install to do full reinstall00:34
rwwente: LTS, so supported for three years on desktop, five on server.00:34
madfoxkemnitz yeah. I havnt messed with that much but it seems that when you add a new kernel module you have to recompile it with that module. there are guides on the net.00:34

PinnaI am using freenet6's ipv6 tunnel because I want to party with the cool kids and all that. The 400ms+ latency is a bit unsuitable for some applications such as IRC... so I still want to use ipv4 by default, using ipv6 only when necessary. How do I configure this?

madfoxkemnitz if that doesnt work or starts going over your head too much Id just say F it lol00:35
suweidScunizi, well, thanks anyway. I'm sure they are just doing something "clever". You don't happen to know if there is a DHCP ip aquisition timeout setting and how one would go about changing that value?00:35

ubottumadfox: You should avoid noisy away messages and -nicks in a busy channel like #ubuntu, or other Ubuntu channels; it causes excessive scrolling which is unfair to new users. Use the command "/away <reason>" to set your client away silently.  See also «/msg ubottu Guidelines»00:36
entedoes ubuntu have any advantages on a server over, let's say, debian?00:36
Scunizisuweid: I don't ... however you might try using network manager and "disconnect" the network.. pause.. then reconnect and the computer will request an IP again.00:36

rwwente: Ubuntu adds a bunch of cloud computing support and the option for commercial support from Canonical. Other than that, not really imho.00:37
Scunizisuweid: LOL!  what happens if your machine is off.. plugged into the network and is turned back on.. if it works immediately then it's a strange issue..00:37
seanp2krohanc: might be better to post all the details in a forum post because it's a complicated problem00:37
Pinnaoh well.00:37
entesounds reasonable00:37
rohancseanp2k: i've already connected and updated my system.. but them later after rebooting.. it doesn't connects00:37
entesupport from canonical was the main reason why ubuntu was so widely accepted, iirc00:38
rohancseanp2k: what details do I have to post?00:38
edbianente, Yeah that's probably true.00:38
suweidScunizi, no it would still take 3 minutes. Of course I had a router at some point and then everything would work right away, because it would hold the connection. It had an accident involving a plant and a lot of swearing so it's out of commision now.00:38

ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto00:41
edbianPinna, oh, IDK it might be choosing ipv6 over ipv4.  I"m not sure.00:41
waaadeedbian, my wireless works perfectly when i first boot up.  (i'm running 10.10 on an MSI u100 netbook).  When i put it to sleep and wake it up again, i can see networks but can't connect.  it just keeps asking for the router's password00:41
edbianwaaade, Let's do it.  PM me if you want00:41
geckopunkSo I've been getting this error when I startup. My Screenlets says: "Internet connection is required to run this Screenlet"00:41
geckopunkSo I thought it was my ClearRss screenlet00:41
Pinnai had to explicitly kill gogoc (my tsp client for freenet6) to be able to use ipv4 now.00:41
Scunizisuweid: then you only have 3 choices.. reconnect the way you have been.. google ubuntu dhcp auto refresh timing or something.. or get a new router ..00:41
Pinnathis is my guess, edbian00:42
entewhatever, good night to all of you00:42
geckopunkI edited the code in /usr/shar/screenlets/ClearRssScreenlet.py to make __timeout = 15 to accomoated for my wireless to connect00:42
geckopunkbut I still get the error...00:42
Pinnawell, i would appreciate it if anyone could help. the original question is "I am using freenet6's ipv6 tunnel because I want to party with the cool kids and all that. The 400ms+ latency is a bit unsuitable for some applications such as IRC... so I still want to use ipv4 by default, using ipv6 only when necessary. How do I configure this?"00:43
geckopunkis there a code to only connect my ClearRSS screenlets to run when active connection is present?00:43
noob581849864Flare183: compiling from source gives me a deluge of errors. see here: http://pastebin.com/5DXCtAwF00:43
suweidScunizi, I'm going to google until I get gray hair, then I'll consider getting a router. :D00:43
edbianwaaade, Problems like that are common.  It is difficult to write open source software for things like suspend to disk and suspend to ram because they are poorly implemented and not well standardized.  The only suggestion I can make is try modprobe -r <moduleName> the module for the wifi card right before you suspend.  Then modprobe <moduleName> right after you come back from suspend to get it working again.00:43
suweidScunizi, thanks.00:43

e01i see that pulseaudio uses 90% of cpu00:44
Flare183KindOne: you can't because its a security flaw if its not that way00:44
jribKindOne: it will only ask for a password for administrative tasks.  What exactly are you doing so often that requires a password?00:44
waaadeedbian, i'll give that a shot.  i appreciate your help!00:44
scott_inoKindOne, anything administrative you can't... however you can auto login and auto installs security updates00:44
edbianKindOne, It only asks for the password when you want to do something an administrator should do.  It's pretty much the core of Linux security that you're not root all the time.00:44
e01is it known problem or is just on my system00:44
noob581849864KindOne, you could run as root all the time (bad idea) or you could change the time delay, which is usually 15 mins. i have the same problem, but i put up with it!00:44
edbianwaaade, Yep.00:44
RRU_Sciguye01: shouldn't happen.......00:44

KindOneedbian: if i open " Ubuntu Software Center " it wants the password, I want to disable the password asking thing entirely...00:52
Ianredbian, same error "Input/output error"00:53

Scunizisakekasi: do you mount it manually? or does it mount automatically on boot? if it's on boot then check the permissions in the mount line in /etc/fstab01:15
realubotsakekasi: The you will change the owner AND the group sakekasi.01:15

billybigriggeradwdad: the answer, (and exact problem) is in that post01:16
Scunizisakekasi: you can also change the owner by .. sudo chown <your user name>:<your user name> /media/<mount point>01:16
adwdadbillybigrigger:  i found that aswell but i don't know how to do the things it says01:17
sakekasiScunizi here's the line in fstab: /dev/sda7   /media/Files   ntfs   defaults   0   0 what should I change?01:17

billybigriggerpeeps[work]: dd01:51
Quintinpeeps[work]: dd, cp01:51
MichaelBehaner sorry01:51
Quintinpeeps[work]: backup in what sense ?01:51
MichaelBehanI meant Scunizi01:51
MichaelBehanpeeps[work], dd if=/dev/sda of=/myEntireDrive.image01:51
MichaelBehan^^ example only01:51
ScuniziMichaelBehan: it allows you to create virtual machines inside of different OS's01:51
peeps[work]Quincy, backup so that i could restore my hard drive completely, since I plan on trying something crazy with it01:52
MichaelBehanScunizi, Pretty neat.. looks better than vmware01:52
MarkTimTachI cant even install windows now every thing is black what do I do01:52
MichaelBehanbut still that seems like a big performance hit. I'm trying to get away from windows. I just can't partition this machine because it's a work pc01:52
ScuniziMichaelBehan: yea.. I used Vmware for several years.. vbox is cleaner, lighter and easier.01:52
ilovefairuz!info duplicity | peeps[work]01:53
MichaelBehanSo I'm kind of forced to use wubi and install inside windows01:53
ubottupeeps[work]: duplicity (source: duplicity): encrypted bandwidth-efficient backup. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.6.10-0ubuntu1 (maverick), package size 190 kB, installed size 924 kB01:53
scott_ino+1 for virtualbox ;) just my two cents01:53
ScuniziMichaelBehan: no. use vbox..01:53
Quintinpeeps[work]: yea, dd would work.  use a boot disk and dd one drive to another ... like... dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb .  or use ghost.  or the linux ghost clone01:53
MichaelBehanScunizi, ?01:53
MichaelBehanScunizi, Again it seems like running a vm inside windows would be a big performance hit01:53
peeps[work]hmm, i don't have a spare drive on this laptop, i guess i could dd to a file on a network share01:53
MichaelBehanAnd it would be defeating the purpose of trying to get away from windows UI01:54
blakkheimMichaelBehan: wubi is also a performance hit01:54
rhcp1253Ah, need help01:54
Quintinpeeps[work]: sure, though that's gonna be slower.  I'd connect a drive with a usb adapter01:54
MichaelBehanThis is a solidstate drive. I'm not as concerned with drive performance hits01:54
ScuniziMichaelBehan: wubi is kinda like a dual boot but will interfere with windows normal boot loader.. if you can't dual boot with a work machine then don't use wubi..  there really isn't much of a performance hit these days..01:54
ruihello everybody01:54
blakkheimMichaelBehan: why can't you do a real install?01:54
peeps[work]Quintin, i gotta work with what I've got, no usb adapter01:54

billybigriggerpeeps[work]: depending on your network, dd over the network shouldn't be too bad01:55

MichaelBehanblakkheim, I'm in a department with a little more freedom01:56

ruiplease who can helpe me i have ubuntu gnome 10.10 maverick meerkater and every time i try to send my video image to someone its crash and close the skype. Is there anyone to help me01:57
blakkheimMichaelBehan: do a real install but encrypt the partition, then when you have to return it you can get rid of it and regrow the ntfs partition01:57
ScuniziMichaelBehan: wubi will change the boot loader to Grub01:57
MichaelBehanScunizi, That's fine01:57
ScuniziMichaelBehan: live usb boot ? :D01:57
MichaelBehanyep that's an option.01:57
billybigriggerpeeps[work]: either way, dd will use ssh to transfer data, which is the bottleneck i'd be worried about, but still, unless you have a TB or higher drive, it's nothing a bag of popcorn can't handle...01:58

Ken8521peeps[work]: not to my knowledge.. easiest thing to do, is back your /home up to an external drive.. most /home configs are only around 2-3gigs tops(w/o any personal files) so you might have a thumb drive big enough to back it up02:01

Ken8521alberto: what exact problem are you having?02:02

peeps[work]scott_ino, yeah i used to do it, but for some reason i chose not to this time.  i figured i never really needed it... until now02:04
bluedoor_Scunizi, that didn't make a difference02:04
scott_inopeeps[work], why can't you simply upgrade, what are you changing?02:04
Scunizibluedoor_: you using chromium or FF02:04
MarkTimTachis there a tech support number I can call I live in the U.S.A02:04
nerdy_kidalberto if i remember correctly you install the pulseaudio-module-jack and then all you have to do is run a script once you start jack02:04
Ken8521MarkTimTach: thats strange... so it won't boot any at all?02:04
ruiKen8521: Can you helpeme02:04
bluedoor_Scunizi, i've tried w/ both02:04
Ken8521MarkTimTach: this sounds hardware related, not software related, if it won't do anything02:05
peeps[work]scott_ino, changing from 32bit to 64bit02:05
MarkTimTachno it wont boot anything02:05
scott_inopeeps[work], ahhh that'll do it02:05
Ken8521rui: sorry, no i cannot... maybe try seeking support from skype.02:05
keith2could someone tell me the command to upgrade to 10.10 from terminal02:05
Ken8521MarkTimTach: make/model of the machine?02:05
Scunizibluedoor_: that's an unusual address.. typically they are or for the router.. try the first suggestion02:05
MarkTimTachI was running ubuntu 10.04 and then i wanted to upgrade it02:05
nerdy_kidalberto the script: http://pastebin.com/vRFppMwP02:05
ruiKen8521:ok thank you02:05
Ken8521rui: because this is really more of an application issue, than an ubuntu issue..02:05
MarkTimTachit is a Compaq cq6002:06
ruiKen8521:ok thank you02:06
bluedoor_Scunizi, neither worked02:06
Scunizibluedoor_: what is the address of the machine you're trying from?02:06
FreshPrincekeith2, "sudo apt-get dist-updgrade"02:06
FreshPrincekeith2, "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"02:06
bluedoor_Scunizi, local address?02:06
Ken8521MarkTimTach: any chance it's hot, and it's not booting due to heat? let it sit and cool for a while, etc?02:06
Scunizibluedoor_: yes02:06
Some_PersonI'm installing ubuntu using the alternate text-based installer, and I need to know if I should select yes or no to this prompt: "[?] Configuring checkbox: Default enabled state. Default Enabled"02:06
bluedoor_Scunizi, inet addr:
MarkTimTachnope it is cool and I had just turned it on02:07
Scunizibluedoor_: is that DHCP or static.. did you set it?02:07
RealOptywhen i try to upgrade to 10.10 i get this error "E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages."02:07
bluedoor_Scunizi, I'm not sure, i don't remember, how can i tell?02:07
aphidso.. i installed 10.10 via updated on my netbook.  now it boots up, pops up the authentication dialogue.  after I log in I get a pretty abstract desktop and a mouse cursor but no UI or menus02:07
Ken8521MarkTimTach: that really sounds like a hardware issue to me...02:07
Scunizibluedoor_: if you don't know then it's most likely DHCP.. you'd know if you set a static address... do you have a windows machine to test the router with?02:08
bluedoor_Scunizi, no i don't, just mac and android02:08
Ken8521can't you log in to the router?  most of the time it's in the router settings whether you're using DHCP or static02:08
bluedoor_Scunizi, I could try my roommate's comp, i guess02:08
MarkTimTachis there anything that conanical can do?02:09
Scunizibluedoor_: does it work on the android?02:09
Ken8521MarkTimTach: what would canonical have to do w/ a hardware problem?02:09
Ken8521MarkTimTach: honestly, i think it was just crappy luck it happened during an upgrade...02:09
MarkTimTachwell after all I was running Ubuntu when it happened02:09
Ken8521MarkTimTach: to my knowledge, canonical only has paid support.. but the days of Linux ruining hardware are long since past us...02:09
recmajkemican you guys tell me where could i find any system monitor that is diplayed on desktop02:10
Ken8521MarkTimTach: if you're running windows, and it shuts down, and will nto boot at all, and you hit the keys, and it just beeps, and you call Microsoft, what are they going to tell you?02:10
ScuniziMarkTimTach: that's like saying "I was in the white house when the astroid hit me.. the President is responsible"02:10
bluedoor_Scunizi, those don't work from android02:10
Ken8521MarkTimTach: i sympathize w/ your problem.. but you really need to contact Compaq from the sounds of it.. but from the looks of that laptop, i'm guessing it's out of warranty02:11
MarkTimTachI was not running windows I was running Ubuntu and I never had this problem with windows but then all of a sudden it happens in Ubuntu02:11
Scunizibluedoor_: try your roommates win machine.. It might be that the firmware in the modem expects IE or direct X for some ungodly reason.02:11
Ken8521MarkTimTach: i was making an analogy.. you apparently missed it.02:11
bluedoor_Scunizi, I've logged into the router from this machine, I haven't made changes to this machine either02:11
Ken8521MarkTimTach: regardless, id on't see why you think this is ubuntus fault... if you're driving a car, and you crash, is it the dealers fault?02:11
ScuniziMarkTimTach: have you checked your cabling? monitor etc..02:11
bluedoor_Scunizi, i'll try WIN02:12
Scunizibluedoor_: sounds like the address is changed02:12
MarkTimTachyes I have02:12
Ken8521Scunizi: it's a laptop, so i assume he's using the laptop screen02:12
MarkTimTachI am running Ubuntu on my desktop and nothing has ever happened02:12
ScuniziKen8521: which guy are you responding about.. I've been talking to a couple of people.02:12
Ken8521MarkTimTach: your desktop has likely never had a hardware failure...02:13
Ken8521Scunizi: MarkTimTach02:13
taomasterhello i 'm having issue with  the linksys usb network adapter wusb600n. did not have this issue with ubuntu 9.0402:13
Ken8521MarkTimTach: everything you're describing, strongly suggests hardware failure.02:13
ScuniziKen8521: ah.. ok.. didn't catch that before.02:13
recmajkemihow can i make windows title bar to be as one with tray when maximized02:14
recmajkemiin desktop edition02:14
MarkTimTachnever mind I got it \02:14
ScuniziMarkTimTach: Ken8521 maybe.. just maybe.. the Fn key and external monitor key02:14
Ken8521Scunizi: probably.. cuz he jus said he "got it".. which means it was something simple...02:14
kpj_Has anyone loaded driver for ubuntu using powerline connection?02:14
Ken8521kpj_: don't those typically hook up to a normal ethernet port?02:15
ScuniziKen8521: or he "got" what we were telling him about hardware failure.02:15
albertonerdy_kid Sorry02:15
Ken8521that coudl be to.. ;)02:15
albertonerdy_kid I wasn't here02:15
albertonerdy_kid Than you very much for everything.02:15
MarkTimTachit is the monitor that went bad I just plugged a cord into my laptop and connected the other end to my tv and now I can see stuff02:15
Ken8521MarkTimTach: ok.02:15
nerdy_kidalberto no prob.  Hope it helps, if you need more info I do have a link somewhere that i used, but i have to dig it up.02:15
ScuniziMarkTimTach: AH HA.. that's a tough one.. sorry that happened.02:15
MarkTimTachthanks for your time02:15
kpj_Ken8582 - It is a port which transmits over the power lines in the house - so a driver is needed02:15
albertonerdy_kid Have you got it running on Ubuntu 10.10?02:16
MarkTimTachwhere can you go to replace a monitor for the laptops02:16
Ken8521kpj_: isit a PCI card, or a USB card, or what?02:16
ScuniziMarkTimTach: just remember that if you can't / don't want to fix the screen, you can always us the machine as a headless server :)02:16
Ken8521kpj_: brb..02:17
MarkTimTachcan I run windows software in ubuntu 10.1002:17
kpj_I have a standard ethernet card but it requires a separate driver to communicate throught the powerline device02:17
ScuniziMarkTimTach: mostly screen replacements is more expensive than most machines.02:17

Scunizibluedoor_: you can use nmap to go through all the IP's on your lan and report what is connected .. from that list you should be able to tell. you'll have to google for nmap instructions though.. I'm not well versed in it.  Some here might be able to direct you though.02:19

islandfellowtrying to install ubuntu 10.10 on a laptop with trial version of windows 7 and it hangs every time at the ubuntu logo, any ideas why?02:27
xananax_Hello; I have issues with my wireless and I am completely new to ubuntu. How would I go about understanding where the problem is?02:27
xananax_I used ndiswrapper and it tells me everything went fine, but I still cant connect02:27
Ken8521xananax_: well first what type of wireless device are you using, and what chipset?02:27
albertonerdy_kid Oh, I see, that's the one I'm using.02:27
Dr_Willisislandfellow:  whats your video chipset? Tried teh Nomodeset option? You could alwo try the alternative installer cd.02:27
albertonerdy_kid The graphical user interface02:28
DavyCaveubuntu 10.04 support multi-monitor SLI?02:28
Guest6086minimec: It doesnt ask me for the password at startup anymore for some reason so it could be that02:28
taomasteri'm having issues with linksys wireless adapter wusb600n02:28
xananax_ken8521: I am using an old compaq presario c500; I tried to google it but apparently it's not even on hp's website anymore, so I dunnow what the chipset is02:28
kpj_ken8521 - It is most likely me, I installed the powerline where my windows system required to load a driver for the ethernet to be able to communicate with the powerline adapter02:28
kpj_I had assumed that I should do something similar for Ubuntu machine02:29
xananax_But following the advice in a thread, I loaded up bcmlw5 with ndiswrapper, that I built from source02:29
Ken8521xananax_: is it an internal wireless device on the machine, or a USB, etc?02:29
xananax_ken8521: internal02:29
Ken8521xananax_: ok, so it's a broadcom.. do you know which one?02:29
DavyCaveanyone know the Nvidia / Ubuntu channel?02:29
nerdy_kidalberto yeah02:29
chienddr3...ou 402:29
Ken8521xananax_: open a terminal and type "lspci"(no quotes, lower case L) and hit enter, and look through the output, and find yoru wireless device02:29
Dr_WillisDavyCave:  not sure there is one. You could check the forums.02:29
tonyyarussoDavyCave: there isn't an nvidia-specific one02:29
HaxXxoRcan anyone help me with a wireless problem02:29
xananax_ken8521: Yeah according to the thread it is broadcom, but I dunnow how to get more info...How would I go about knowing which one?02:30
DavyCaveim trying to find information on if 10.04 supports multi-monitor SLI mode?02:30
Dr_WillisDavyCave:  i dont use sli. but multi monitors work good here with my nvidia systems02:30
Ken8521xananax_: see the info i just sent you02:30
Ken8521DavyCave: same here..02:30
minimecGuest6086: I am not a guru when it comes to the keyring. I run it in 'unsave mode' whitout password. So I don't have the keyring questions. It could be that you allowed the keyring to always allow access to the network.02:30
DavyCaveDr_Willis: yea i use multi monitor now, but i saw nvidia finally enabled multi with SLI so i want it lol02:30
amikropHello. Since I installed the nVidia proprietary driver, my splash image disappeared. How can I fix that?02:30

nerdy_kidamikrop by spash image you mean the nice "ubuntu" splash that pops up while the computer is booting?02:31
Dr_WillisDavyCave:  check the nvidia-settings tool i guess.. SLI with Multi Monitors. seems a bit of a contradiction.. but  I always found sli a thing.. that i never could justify. :)02:31

mslRoasted, is the directory setguid?03:46
Lynx_2yeah u can, but not a bootable HD, with a totally dif os for another computer03:46
Lynx_2maybe i misunderstood the question03:46
Roastedmsl, I have no idea what you just asked me...03:47
gr8m8Lynx_2: if it has its' own bootloader sure you can03:47
virtueHello. Does anyone know anything about sound?03:47
xplothe thing is i want to install a linux environment on my huge external, so i could use it AT THE SAME TIME i use my vista lappy03:47
xplopossible right ?03:47
Lynx_2ok, so if i install ubuntu on my HD for my comp, my gfx card, etc etc, and bring my HD to your computer, u're saying their is a way the OS will successfully load?03:47
xplobut, ubuntu on the portable, and vista in his pc03:48
un214it should boot03:48
un214it might boot to command prompt03:48
zebastianortison additional drivers, i am on lubuntu 10.10, upgraded from 10.04 and it works smooth, i noticed though, on the additional drivers it mentions broadcom b43 wireless driver and broadcom sta wireless driver and ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver, now, i am connected through the wireless right now and it works fine, screen resolution also seems to work fine so should i leave it and take the not broken don't fix it approach or not?03:48
xplobut, both at the same time ?03:48
mslRoasted, or maybe sticky bit03:48
Lynx_2exactly, i won't load03:48
mslI mix them up sometimes03:48

zacstoneizinucs: even the in xconfg i set it to 120hz but my monitor still said its in 60hz mode04:22
izinucszacstone: google your card first and see if it's capable.. if it is.. then did you install nvidia drivers from the hardware drivers appelate or the binary from nvidia?04:22
Jordan_Ugrub2sucks: What you are seeing at boot is not grub2 but grub legacy. Change the boot order in your BIOS.04:22
wakeupstickyubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386 is the image file i burned04:23

Jordan_Ujadarite: Yes (I am not familiar with that particular program, and unetbootin is known to work).04:23
zacstoneZGHirc: i even roll back drivers, it won't even help04:23
jadariteJordan, thanks, I will try now04:23
sanduz2kgunpowder, your video card driver probably isnt working. press alt+f1 on your keyboard and login and from there you can work04:23
zacstoneizinucs: from the ubuntu software04:24
Jordan_Ujadarite: You're welcome.04:24
kgunpowderSo just boot it and see if alt+f1 will fix it?04:24
kgunpowderI mean, after I go to sleep hit that?04:24
zacstoneizinucs: is there command to FORCE 120hz no matter what..04:24
ZGHirczacstone: Though it is the beta version .It 's just work well.04:24
izinucszacstone: xrandr will adjust the hz..04:24
virtueJordan_U: .avi video is sped up as well. I enabled the clock applet gnome panel to show system time with seconds. It seems to be functioning normally except that it jumps 2 seconds really often with a small pause, but the pause still keeps it on time exactly.04:24
ABGDis it normal to have CPU usage hovering around 54%? i have a intel core 2 duo04:24
sanduz2kgunpowder, alt+f1 wont fix it, but you will be able to log in and type commands and stuff, thats what you need to start fixing it04:24

wakeupstickyshould i try re-burning the file?04:30
virtueJordan_U: That makes sense. Any ideas on how to access the clock that programs run on?04:30
semitoneswakeupsticky, what happened when you booted from cd?04:30
ssbrI want to install Wine without having internet on the computer I'm installing it on. How would I do this?04:30
BOZZYHehe... That was actually my question ActionParsnip04:30
aphidSince upgrading to 10.10, after authenticating I get an empty desktop background and a mouse cursor but nothing to click...04:30
ActionParsnipaocoder: can you give the output of: cat /etc/apt/sources.list | head -n 55 | tail -n 1      thanks, don't paste like that either please04:30
BOZZYthanks for answering my question :)04:30
ActionParsnipBOZZY: zing!04:30
Jordan_Uvirtue: No, you might want to ask in ##hardware.04:30
wakeupstickywhen i booted from cd i got the screen with "ubuntu" and the five white dots (turning red) for about five minutes (literally). then ubuntu just started up, but "Starting file manager" windows kept popping up over and over (but just in the taskbar)04:30
wakeupstickyfirefox worked for a minute but then kept crashing04:31
zacstone_izinucs: how do i know if i'm on kdm or kde?04:31
aocoderActionParsnip, sorry about the pasting04:31
izinucszacstone_: kdm is kde.. like gdm is gnome..04:31
DanteKen: alright i hout which usb it is in what do i do with it?04:32
Dantei found out*04:32
semitoneswakeupsticky, hmm... what kind of computer is it?04:32
zacstone_izinucs: so i'm on gdm if i'm on ubuntu?04:32
blakkheimActionParsnip: why cat | head when you can just head file04:32
ActionParsnipssbr: you will need to grab all the dependancies from the web, you could start with wine then see what the packages moan about, then go grab that package and so on, very messy04:32
Ken8521Dante, you found out what?04:32
wakeupstickyacer aspire04:32
izinucszacstone_: yes.. unless you're on kubuntu.. but you should have to stop X to make the change04:32
ssbrActionParsnip: Oh. Well. The other part is that strictly speaking I haven't installed ubuntu yet, either04:32
ActionParsnipblakkheim: true but it's what came to mind so I flew with it04:32
AshyIsMeis there an ubuntu package for vim 7.3 somewhere?04:33
AshyIsMei cant seem to find one in synaptic04:33
semitoneswakeupsticky, usually when you boot from the cd04:33
semitoneswakeupsticky, you get a splash screen asking if you want to try ubuntu, run a memory test, etc.04:33
Danteon the terminal it came up with the devices pluged in to each usb is that all i was suppose to get?04:33
aocoderActionParsnip: "cat: /etc/apt/sources.list: No such file or directory"04:33
blakkheimAshyIsMe: ubuntu usually has outdated packages, if the "vim" package is too old then you should compile it yourself04:33
ActionParsnipAshyIsMe: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=155828804:33

semitoneswakeupsticky, so I'd try doing that again, and have IRC open while you do it if you can04:34

HOLOGRAPHICpizzaDoes anyone know if the Alternate Install CD for Maverick has an option for a command-line install? (no desktop environment)04:34
Ken8521Dante, yes... do you see your wireless device in the list?04:34
wakeupstickycan't have irc open while i try to boot, cause i only have one computer04:34

blakkheim!mini > HOLOGRAPHICpizza04:34
ubottuHOLOGRAPHICpizza, please see my private message04:34
ActionParsnipaocoder: ok then use nautilus to open /etc/apt   find sources.list and open it, you must have that file as it not only relates to your error (there is a bad line 55) but it's also needed04:34
mikeruKen8521, fixed it04:34
wakeupstickybut i will have it open while i'm reburning and i'll come back after i try to boot again04:35
Ken8521mikeru, great04:35

mikeruKen8521, I guessed there was something wrong on my session, so I logged in04:35

Tac_Homeso, I have 10.10 on my netbook and now I am having trouble with my attached monitor.  The settings window shows everything correctly, but my netbook screen is blank, and I just have a netbook sized portion of my LCD active, and showing what I'd normally see on just the netbook screen.... any thoughts?04:35

jadariteJordan, in UNetbootin, what do I choose to install edubuntu 10.10?  They have several options for ubuntu 10.10 but nothing for edubuntu04:36
wakeupstickyis that an image to try if the normal one doesn't work properly?04:36
Kibamy bootloader is broke04:36
semitoneswakeupsticky, exactly04:36

kgunpowderI'm back.04:36
kgunpowderAlt+F1 was only a second route to the problem.04:36
DanteKen: yea i says linksys for one of the devices04:36
HOLOGRAPHICpizzaizinucs: I remember the old alternate CDs did, I don't want to have a sever kernel though, which is why I don't just use the server edition.04:36
jadariteIn UNetbootin, what do I choose to install edubuntu 10.10?  They have several options for ubuntu 10.10 but nothing for edubuntu04:37
Ken8521jadarite, have you already dowbnloaded the isO?04:37
histojadarite: edubuntu-desktop04:37
jadariteken, yes04:37
izinucsHOLOGRAPHICpizza: so once installed install the kernel you want and uninstlal the server kernel :)04:37
ActionParsnipKen8521: if you run: sudo lshw -C network   you will see the chip it uses (the make is moot) and can websearch on how to make that chip work04:37
histojadarite: nvm ignore me04:37
Ken8521ActionParsnip, lsusb should show the same thing04:37
Kibamy boatloader is broke04:38
ActionParsnipKen8521: no, it shows different stuff, although the 8 character hex ID is also useful for finding guides04:38
kgunpowderI still get a sound that's akin to three sixteenth-notes on a drum of some sort, but my monitor always goes to sleep.04:38

KibaActionParsnip: I cannot boot into linux04:38
Kibathere is no options04:38
jadariteken, WHAT OPTION BELOW?  BELOW WHAT?  I am confused04:39
wakeupstickyi think maybe i stopped the burn process prematurely last time04:39
wakeupstickyit just popped the cd out but then sucked it back in04:39
Tac_HomeActionParsnip, I don't get what you're asking me to do....04:39
ActionParsnipKiba: ok and what actually happens when you try to boot, what happens onscreen....04:39

RabidLockerGnomeman, this is disheartening. There is not one snd-hda-intel model that works, not one setting that helps. My laptop will not output sound no matter what, unless its going through HDMI. major wtf04:39
histoRabidLockerGnome: its a bug04:40
RabidLockerGnomeand how do i work around it histo ?04:40
semitonesActionParsnip, this may be of interest to someone you were helping: http://www.planetoss.com/detail.php?id=1304:40

kgunpowderUsing 10.1004:40
histoRabidLockerGnome: what type of machine do you have04:40
RabidLockerGnomeAcer Aspire 7736Z04:40
ActionParsnipTac_Home: look at your keyboard and you will most likely have one labelled 'Fn' in the bottom left, if you look at the F-keys (F1, F2, F3 etc) you may see a little image of a monitor, maybe with an arrow. it varys from system to system so I cannot describe it exactly, if you press them together it should switch the vga output mode and show a split view or a cloned view and such04:40

Gisellehello all, i need help, someone can tell me how install HideMyIP 2009 in ubuntu please04:41
Ken8521Dante, what chipset is it?04:41
semitoneskgunpowder, did you try ctrl-alt-f1?04:41
ActionParsnipaocoder: thats why, that is a command, not an entry in the sources file. If you run:  gksudo gedit     then open the file then you will have write access and can delete the line, save the new file then run: sudo apt-get update04:41
kgunpowderNo, may I ask what that would do?04:42
Ken8521histo, yeah, adding something to alsa-conf?.. thats what i did, worked on mine04:42
semitoneskgunpowder, that command switches you to a virtual console, which is like a terminal that lets you imput commands.04:42
histoKen8521: different issue different card04:42

kgunpowdersemitones, what commands do I input? I've no experience with Ubuntu04:42
semitoneskgunpowder, sometimes those are working when graphics aren't working for whatever reason04:42
histoRabidLockerGnome: basically install dkms and the deb that the one guy links at near the bottom04:43
semitoneskgunpowder, lets do it one step at a time :) first see if that works.04:43
DanteKen8521: how do i tell? it doesnt say in the terminal and the only thing i can say is that it was made 12/200704:43
aocoderActionParsnip - okay, that makes sense04:43
ActionParsnipKiba: make a bootable usb using a different system and you can reinstall grub. I am not conversant with grub but you CAN boot if you type certain commands at the prompt04:43
aocoderActionParsnip: thanks04:43
RabidLockerGnomehisto, excellent, thanks04:43
histoRabidLockerGnome: its a problem with the detection of the card. Problem is across architecture and distros it's a problem with the 2.6.35 kernel04:43
kgunpowdersemitones I'm booting to it, other than that (which takes a little bit) is there another way to do this side-by-side?04:43
histoRabidLockerGnome: please mark the bug as effecting you also04:43
RabidLockerGnomehisto: what an annoyance!04:43
Ken8521Dante, try this in a terminal see if it tells you more.. sudo lshw -C network04:43
ActionParsnipaocoder: you need gksudo to run gedit with elevated access, just opening the file only opens it as user whic doesn't have write access the file04:43
histoRabidLockerGnome: yeah its not a problem on anything running earlier kernels like 2.6.3204:43
semitoneskgunpowder, is your problem that you can't see anything when you boot up ubuntu?04:44
Chaos2358can some one help me? i found a way to install yahoo messenger on ubuntu on http://www.technixupdate.com/download-yahoo-messenger-for-ubuntu-linux-with-webcam-voice-chat-photo-sharing-support/ but my terminal cannot find libssl0.9.6" any ideas????04:44

Chaos2358Ken8521 ok04:57
ActionParsnipsemitones: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-fix-ubuntu-10-04-lts-lucid-blank-screen-at-startup.html04:58
izinucssemitones: drop to a tty (ctrl+alt+F2).. log in .. and do a full update with .. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade ..04:58
ActionParsnipchris8: can you expand on "combining towers" please04:58
izinucssemitones: then .. sudo reboot now ..04:58
Ken8521Chaos2358, hmm, seems the jaunty packages ar emissing.04:58
semitonesizinucs, how much will that help if they're using 10.10?04:59
chris8Action: through a LAN or cluster... apparently Mosix is one of a few different programs that can sync up different nodes in a cluster04:59
semitonesActionParsnip, thanks :)04:59
Chaos2358Ken8521 so i'm guessing there is going to be no way i can get yahoo voice and video chat on ubuntu then04:59
Ken8521Chaos2358, there has to be an ubuntu package around somewhere04:59
izinucssemitones: dist-upgrade doesn't upgrade to the next release.. just upgrades current packages to more recent ones if they are available.04:59
mattcodesI have ~/Dropbox/Books , how I can add this to gnome file manager shortcuts so I dont have to find the folder everytime I want to save this this directory?05:00
obj-cWhat's the objective C channel on freenode05:00
Chaos2358Ken8521 Reason it's so important is my brother and alot of my old squad are still in afghan and all use yahoo vid chat05:00
izinucssemitones: it's the first think I do to make sure the system is up to date05:00
semitonesizinucs, ok05:00
Ken8521Chaos2358, yeah, i understand05:00
DavyCavehello all05:01
chris8ActionParsnip: guess i'm looking for feedback on running a micro-cluster: forseeable problems and a measure of utility05:01
Chaos2358Ken8521 i've been searching for two weeks and thats all i can find though. any ideas on where else to look?05:01
DavyCavecan you run an Nvidia 8600GT and a Radeon HD card together on ubuntu 10.04 with full driver support?05:01
Aemaethwhy does xchat for windows ask for $20?05:01
semitoneskgunpowder, are you here now?05:01
grub2sucksJordan_U: that worked, thanks!05:01
kgunpowdersemitones, if I press the said keys BEFORE the drums (ie: at a three choice boot selection screen) I get the same as I would in the recovery option, but it only scrolls down as far as kernel_thread_helper or something. AFTER the drums, nothing happens at all.05:01
ActionParsnipchris8: may help: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LTSP-Cluster05:02
Ken8521Chaos2358, https://launchpad.net/~loell/+archive/ppa05:02
chris8ActionParsnip: Thanks man! Take it easy!05:02
semitoneskgunpowder, ok... hmm... try ctrl-alt-f2, ctrl alt-f3, etc... and see if any of those will give you a virtual terminal and a place to login05:02
izinucsDavyCave: as long as you hand write the xorg.conf file.. suggestion.. put one card in. install drivers and with nvidia-settings you can get it to write it's info to xorg.conf.. then install the ati and do the same.. combine the two in the correct fashion and you should be good to go.. it won't be easy though..05:03
Danteis there a default password for su?05:03
semitoneskgunpowder, are you running ubuntu from the live cd by the way?05:03
Aemaethmattcodes, can you drag the directory to the bar on the left side of nautilus?05:03
Chaos2358Ken8521 ok i'm not exactlly sure what that is?05:03
Ken8521Dante, stop using SU05:03
mattcodesAemaeth will try now05:03
ActionParsnipDante: no, you can use: sudo -i    and get a root terminal05:03
Ken8521Chaos2358, PPA repository for gyachi...05:03
kgunpowderThis terminal would look like? Semitones I downloaded 10.10 onto a CD , wouldn't work, so by putting the CD in while running win7, it prompted for an installation apart from the win7 OS, so I took that option.05:03
Chaos2358ken8521 ok i just saw the gyachi at the bottom05:04
chris8ActionParsnip: hmmm... not too sure if tha's what I'm looking for... the clusters don't have servers05:04
histoHow do you upgrade 10.04 to 10.10 from cd?05:04
ActionParsnipDante: there is no root password and the account is disabled. I can't be any clearer05:04
mattcodesAemeath, FFS, it was that simple :) thanks05:04
DavyCave izinucs: thanks for the input. Yea its never easy :-\05:04
Chaos2358Ken8521 thank you so much. you seriouslly dont know how much that means05:04
virtueJordan_U: Thanks. I adjusted this internal clock via appending "noapic acpi=off" to the grub boot entry for this OS.05:04
DanteKen8521: How do you install NDISWrapper05:04
Aemaethmattcodes, i also use dropbox, and i moved a shortcut to the entire dropbox folder to there on nautilus, so that should help you out05:04
Ken8521Chaos2358, no problem05:04
Aemaethmattcodes, great05:04
ActionParsnipchris8: you can run the system on desktop systems, you will just have X taking up various amounts of ram and cpu05:05
hmmmmmmmmizinucs: i think this may help, http://code.google.com/p/vaio-f11-linux/wiki/NVIDIASetup however, don't have anything in the proc folder ... any ideas?  thanks btw05:05
Aemaeththat link should also make one in your "places" bar on top, but doesn't always show up in every program05:05
semitoneskgunpowder, ok, so when you boot up, do you have a bootloader that lets you choose between windows and ubuntu?05:05
ActionParsnipchris8: http://fghaas.wordpress.com/2010/05/03/ubuntu-10-04-with-full-cluster-stack-support/05:05
NetUserhey guys i have a e1550 i did the mode switch and everything worked fine for about 2 hours, now ever time i plug in my device i get the message network dissconnected, even before i try and connect to the network and the internet has stop working05:05
NetUserany ideas?05:05
chris8ActionParsnip: gah! totally! thanks!05:05
kgunpowdersemitones, yes, then on the choice of ubuntu I have three other options, normal, recovery, or back to square one05:05
ActionParsnipchris8: a server is simply a system offering services to other systems05:05
izinucshmmmmmmmm: the post says it all.05:06
semitoneskgunpowder, ok... well the virtual terminal would look something like a DOS interface -- just white/gray text on a black screen05:06
chris8ActionParsnip: i thought in a cluster that all the nodes were "equal"05:06
ActionParsnipchris8: true, afaik05:06
kgunpowdersemitones, anything to put into that?05:06
mattcodesclipboard manager? on windoze I use arsclips which stores the last 10 entries, i can do ctrl+alt+z (1..10) and see last ten, recommendation/05:06
histough you can't upgrade from desktop cd05:06
semitoneskgunpowder, possibly :D first lets see if you can get one05:06
chris8ActionParsnip: so does one fuction as a server? or do they all do a little bit? :P05:07
semitoneskgunpowder, if not, ActionParsnip found me a link that will help: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-fix-ubuntu-10-04-lts-lucid-blank-screen-at-startup.html05:07
kgunpowdersemitones, ....taking me step by step I may be new to ubuntu, but not to software! *leaves to do as is told*05:07

Doc1987I have a aspire 1 532h netbook that had bluetooth capablities when I had windows installed. Now with ubuntu netbook the computer tells me that I don't have a bluetooth adapter installed.05:07
etyrnal_how do i create a user who can NOT change their password using the GIU?05:07
Aemaethmattcodes, screenlets has something like that, and another more native approach i can't remember just now05:08
blakkheimwhy would you do that to your poor user :(05:08
etyrnal_i am a parent05:08
sin_taxIs there any reason to install 10.04 x64 instead of 10.10 or should I got ahead with maverick?05:08
kgunpowdersemitones, save that, I'm going to try one solution at a time.05:08
kgunpowderbrb semitones05:08
blakkheimetyrnal_: you can always reset it as root05:08
semitoneskgunpowder, gotcha, good luck05:08
blakkheimetyrnal_: or even have a cron job that resets it every night05:09
etyrnal_i don't want to have to05:09
semitonesoh snap05:09
semitonesI didn't realize he couldn't do it at the same time as irc...05:09
killawat-313is enlightenment considered a desktop environment or a windows manager?05:09
blakkheimkillawat-313: a window manager05:09
etyrnal_How do i set a user up so that their password can not e changed?05:10
etyrnal_(by the user that is)05:10
ActionParsnipkillawat-313: sounds like a WM to me: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Enlightenment05:10
Aemaethmattcodes, the screenlet thing i'm talking about is called "Copystack" within that program, but i KNOW there's one that you can put just by your clock, someone else in the room will probably know it05:11
killawat-313so then i would need to install it over and environment right?05:11
etyrnal_another reason, is because it's a shared account...  a family account...  and i do not want child A being able to accidentally/purposefully change the password05:11
mattcodesAemaeth will take a look thanks05:11
etyrnal_and i don't see why i should have to pass my request for help past an evaluation just to get help?05:11
blakkheimkillawat-313: it usually runs standalone05:12
beilabsjust installed redis on ubuntu 10.04.....server is started, when I go to the web console on http://localhost:6379/ I get -ERR wrong number of arguments-ERR unknown command a number of times, any tips?05:12
Aemaethmattcodes, the only reason you wouldn't like the screenlets is 1) it puts it on the desktop  2) it takes a whole nother program just to run05:12
killawat-313ok thanks05:12
etyrnal_so, is there a way to set a user's password, and then make it so that user can not change the password?05:12
blakkheim!repeat | etyrnal_05:12
ubottuetyrnal_: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://ubuntu.stackexchange.com05:12
troy-if a virtual machine is whole disk encrypted setup in an LVM container - how can i mount the /boot partition without decrypting?05:12
ActionParsnipkillawat-313: it may be able to stand on its own, fluxbox and openbox can do this but from that wiki it sounds like it needs a DE. I've not used E before though05:12
mattcodesone more question is there an alt+tab (fast) between apps running in different windows, I know I have winkey+A which is pretty fast but quick switching between a and b a global alt+tab?05:13
etyrnal_i love how people will question my motives for asking for help, but then won't help05:13
meeehow do i install a game thats on a disc?05:13
blakkheimmeee: is it a linux game?05:13
Aemaethmattcodes, if you're using compiz, there's all sorts of bindings you can make to do different things, if you are and want more info just ask05:14
izinucsetyrnal_: not sure exactly how but it has to do with what group the user belongs to..05:14
spotterupdated to maverick, ssh doesn't come up on boot05:14
meee<blakkheim> its CSS05:14
spotterthis is annoyting as it's a headless box05:14
spottercan blindly login as root w/ keyboard attached and start /etc/init.d/ssh start05:14
Gneaspotter: was sshd selected during installation?05:14
spotterbut upstart isn't starting it05:14
spotterGnea, upgrade from lucid to maverick05:14

etyrnal_izinucs: thanks!  a least that's a start...  so You are saying, that as far as You know, it is/may be possible tho?05:14
Digital_1No don't05:15

meee<blakkheim> ya i think so05:15
doc1987_can anyone help me with a bluetooth issue im having with ubuntu netbook05:15
ActionParsnipspotter: log a bug and you can add the command in /etc/rc.local   as a hacky workaround (or mess with the bootup if you wish)05:15
spotterGnea, it was uninstalled from /etc/rc2.d05:15
izinucsetyrnal_: I know it's possible.. user settings are very flexable05:15
mattcodesi see there is a compiz process running, im on 10.04 ubuntu (gnome) pretty default setup at the moment?05:15
Gneaspotter: why?05:15
spotterI have no idea05:15
spotterI manually update-rc.d it into place05:15
spotterthen dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server05:15
Digital_1Anyone get Gwibber to work with Facebook?05:15
spotterand it was removed again05:15
ActionParsnipspotter: log a bug05:15
semitonesDigital_1, yep05:15
Prohibitedhello =P05:15
Gneaspotter: I would just update-rc.d it and leave it at that05:16
Pinnamaverick is bumpy and i'm jumpy for natty.05:16
Gneaspotter: and file a bug while you're at it05:16
etyrnal_izinucs: thanks -- that right there is a big help - no i know where to start looking - much appreciated05:16
izinucsetyrnal_: good luck.. nice project05:16
Digital_1@semitones Mine just has an authorize button and it does authorize but afterwards  I can't find anything to actually add the account.  Did you have any such troubles with yours?05:16
etyrnal_so maybe create a group, put that user in it, and then set that group to be unable to change it's pw -- essentially, right?05:16
spotterGnea, not a "bug"05:16
spotterfrom it's postinst05:16
spotteremove_old_init_links() {05:16
spotterit actively does this05:16
FloodBot1spotter: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.05:16
Gneaspotter: if it's not working like it's supposed to be working, it's got a bug05:17
sacarlsonspotter: you can just make a work around untill you find the real problem.  setup a cron @reboot to start a script that waits 30 secounds before it starts it.  I asume it tries to start before the networks is up05:17
spotterbut its doing what it means to do05:17
Aemaethmattcodes, alright then, you can install the "compizconfig-settings-manager" and "fusion-icon"  and then open in applications > system tools > the fusion icon for compiz05:17
izinucsetyrnal_: maybe.. but more like remove membership in the group that allows password changes.05:17
doc1987_can anyone help me with a bluetooth issue im having with ubuntu netbook05:17

ActionParsnip!details | doc1987_05:17
ubottudoc1987_: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."05:17
mattcodeszhengshi, its not out of beta yet so unlikely05:17
ActionParsnipzhengshi_: if you add the mozilla ppa you can have it now05:17
Gneaspotter: right, but for a server, I would expect sshd to be working out of the box, particularly if I explicitly told it to be installed at install time05:18
etyrnal_hmm - the user is in a group named after their own name05:18
ActionParsnipetyrnal_: thats normal05:18
meeehow do i install an iso file05:18
izinucsetyrnal_: no.. there are several/many groups that a user belongs to "out of the box"05:18
zhengshi_I had.. But I doesn't feel it good..05:18
ActionParsnipetyrnal_: you will also notice the group ownership of $HOME is the username05:18
Aemaethmattcodes, i'm on a fresh install too, so we both need to do this..hah05:18
ActionParsnipmeee: you need to mount it then install whatever is inside05:18
sacarlsonspotter: or just modify the ssh-server script to wait some time after boot before it starts05:18
mattcodessudo meee, mount -o loop /home/me/download.iso /mount/mydownload05:18

meee<ActionParsnip> i mounted it and theres a lot of stuff inside05:19

twinkie_addicti noticed like 5 errors when i loged in to cli seem update-notifier was not installed an cpu checker . i installed update-notifier and that fix erros05:20
Lowweizinucs: I was planning on having Ubuntu as my main OS, and run Windows in VM for games... I guess i'm screwed here?05:20

ActionParsnipetyrnal_: you have an owner with some access, the group ownershi pwith access. You can change the group ownershi pto give different people access to the data, the last access is the rest of the world05:21
spotterbug filed05:21
Aemaethmattcodes, oh yea, my favorite are using the "shift switcher" bound to my left click button at the bottom of the screen to cycle windows in that immediate desktop, and right click for all workspaces,05:21
lucenttonysan: you need to set SCREEN environment variable05:21
izinucsLowwe: well.. 3d with virtualbox is still experimental.. so yea.. most likely05:21
ActionParsnipmeee: well I have no idea what file the iso relates to. "an ISO file" could be the iso of ANYTHING05:21

etyrnal_ActionParsnip: can i do this through. /System/Administration/Users and Groups?05:23
ActionParsnipLowwe: we arent talking about mac here05:23
Aemaethmattcodes, with compiz you can make your system as pretty or as dull as you feel fits your needs, obviously a professional setting doesn't need fancy things but you show a non *nix user the cube and they're normally impressed,  although i love my sphere <305:23
ActionParsnipetyrnal_: if you like, sure05:23
lucenttonysan: I messed up, okay it's DISPLAY environment variable05:23

tonysanizinucs: well, I use windoze in my office...05:23
lucenttonysan: export DISPLAY=:0; gedit05:23
spotteroff to login again05:23
lucentthat would run gedit05:23
ActionParsnipLowwe: as far as I know you won't get great 3d performance in a VM under linux05:23
LowweActionParsnip: damn05:24
mattcodesAemaeth, probably just for shortcut setup for now although visual aids can definitely help productivity in many circumstances05:24
tioxCedega's the best option, paid, CodeWeavers makes CXGames, a good alternative that supports the WINE effort more than Cedega does. PlayOnLinux's free, and if you wanna be ambitious, just go nuts and get WINE.05:24
ActionParsnipLowwe: you could ask in ##vbox05:24
lucenttonysan: requires that your Xauthority file is created and that you have magic MIT cookies set up properly, which they may or may not be05:24

Jordan_UFreshPrince: Yes, it's the new font made specifically for Ubuntu.05:25
ActionParsnipmattcodes: could use alt+tab05:25
FreshPrinceok cool :>05:25
AemaethFreshPrince, it changed for me from 10.0405:25
FreshPrincemine too yes05:25
FreshPrincewell it looks great05:26

AemaethActionParsnip, now he can make alt-tab do all sorts of neat things :305:26

lucentdoc1987_: insane way is install 'dconf-tools' and run dconf-editor to edit the GSettings value manually05:27
spotterGnea, the strangest thing about this05:27
tioxLike, renaming Applications to Start for instance.05:27
ActionParsnipdoc1987_: simply add the command "bluetooth-applet" to your Sessions, log out and log in again05:27

MACscrhisto: it is easy or it isnt easy. me confused =P05:29
spotterasking now05:29
histoMACscr: it is easy05:29
Aemaethyooo, you could make a script that sets it every time you boot up though05:29
lucentyooo: "permanently" ?   would require changing the firmware code on the device, or you can create a udev.d rule which runs mac changing command at boot time05:29
histoMACscr: you just use the upgrade manager and it will handle it. Or you can download the alternate iso and use that.05:29

Gneaspotter: yeah, it's like that at sometimes, gotta be patient to get anywhere05:31
lucentjoej323: oh...05:31
ActionParsnipjoej323: check USB consistancy then as well as test ram05:31
yoooAemaeth, find what on google? what specifically/05:31
doc1987_lucent: ah ok..thanks tho05:31
lucentjoej323: what method are you using to make the USB bootable?05:31
histokillawat-313: it's a window manager05:32
histojoej323: you can still perform an checksum on usb05:32
Aemaethyooo, there are many ways i'm sure, but here's one, http://www.irongeek.com/i.php?page=security/changemac05:32
joej323used a program to make it bootable, just a moment i'll give you the name... ActionParsnip: already did memtest86+ also came back clean... what do you mean check usb consistancy?05:32
lucentdoc1987_: the output of 'hcitool dev' can show you any supported hci (bluetooth)05:32
spottermy nfs isn't working05:32
histoyooo: macchanger will work05:33
spottercan mount, but nothing visible on mounted side05:33
lucentdoc1987_: you need to make it so that your bluetooth is working before the software can interact05:33
ActionParsnipjoej323: when the USB boots and you see the stickman screen (just like ytou did for the ram test) you can check USB consistancy there05:33
semitonesActionParsnip, why is it called the stickman screen?05:33
spotterhmm, this upgrade was a major failure05:33
doc1987_lucent: ok05:33
ActionParsnipsemitones: I call it that as there is a little stickman at the bottom of the screen05:34
joej323ok, program used to make usb bootable was universal usb installer 1.8.0505:34
semitonesoh yeah --- a man and a keyboard?05:34
doc1987_lucent: so if it comes up blank my guess is its not supported05:34
ActionParsnipsemitones: http://s.linux-mag.com/i/articles/7740/lucid-boot.jpg05:34

ActionParsnipsemitones: indeed ;)05:35
Kibatime for me to get a USB drive05:35
lucentdoc1987_: correct !05:35
ActionParsnipjoej323: i'd try the ubuntu memtest05:35
Jordan_Usemitones: ActionParsnip: It's supposed to mean "Press any key for accessability options", but It took me a few boots to realize that so I guess they didn't do a good job conveying that :)05:35
yooohisto, permanently?05:35
Kiba(thankfully, the most improtant part are already somewhere else05:35
doc1987_lucent: ok thanks...i was hoping that it had bluetooth wanted to play around with that05:35
peepsaloti formatted a usb stick for ext4, and now it mounts with root permissions.  how can i make it give me write permission on the root of this drive?05:35
joej323i don't think it's allowing me to get that far, Action05:35
histoyooo: not sure you'd have to take a look and try. I don't use it.05:35
semitonesJordan_U, oh that's what it means :P you cleared up a lot of mystery just there!05:35

zebastianortisif i type nautilus on the terminal it works05:37

Tac_Homehisto, intel05:44
Tac_Homehisto, it's an acer aspire one05:45
histoGwar: the enelope is empathy05:45
semitonesGwar, try opening up evolution and seeing if there's an option there05:45

Gwarsemitones: remove indicator-messages :P05:47
icarus-czebastianortis, i have a feeling that by the time you run nautilus on lxde, you are using more resources than a plain GNOME05:47
Ken8521one of hte tabs is "show pidgin in system tray... change to always"05:47
Gwarya I have it there already :)05:47

zebastianortisicarus-c, i am running nautilus on lxde and it's working05:47

icarus-czebastianortis, i'm talking about resource consumption, not work or not05:48
Ken8521Gwar, it used to belong to evolution, but that changed when Ubuntu tried to integrate everything05:48
AemaethGwar, i used to hate it too, but then pidgin started crashing on me, so i like it through necessity05:48
Ken8521Aemaeth, really? no probs at all w/ pidgin here05:48
AemaethKen8521, yea, it might have been my setup, or it was conflicting, i'm sure it's not worldwide or anything05:48
icarus-czebastianortis, nautilus would load lots of gnome stuff, on top of lxde05:48
ActionParsnipAemaeth: tried the pidgin ppa?05:49

joej323ok so i haven't tried it yet, but it seems that the universal usb installer was automatically loading the corrupt download (that i didn't delete for some reason) onto the pen drive which is why i was getting that error... about to give it another shot... wish me luck!!!05:50
icarus-cbesson3c, so you have been using grub 0.97 instead of grub2 ?05:50
Aemaethjoej323, that sounds like the reason it would be corrupt05:50

ActionParsnipkevin_: yep you need to tell the package system to refresh the lists ;)05:53
icarus-cbesson3c, we have been using grub2 for a while. it wouldn't be surprising if newer updates break grub1.   you may use grub2 instead, or simply just fix the existing grub05:53

replicasexi have a 5.1 setup, but ubuntu's sound default was stereo duplex or whatever, it gives a load of options, can ubuntu handle 5.1 output?06:52
agronholmActionParsnip: litvte, python-vte, tzdata, linux-libc, new kernel06:52
agronholmnothing that should break the looks06:52
ActionParsnipagronholm: possibly the new kerel then, if you remove the proprietary driver then reinstall it, it may help06:52
ActionParsnipagronholm: the kernel module for the nvidia driver needs compiling for the updated kernel so is likely that is the cause06:53
agronholmActionParsnip: I'll try that06:53
ActionParsnipagronholm: and can easily break the looks06:53
kevin_Jordan_U, is it a grub problem?06:54
kevin_based on the error?06:54
Jordan_Ukevin_: It's hard to diagnose without access to the computer, if you need to get the computer booted you can use Super GRUB2 Disk as it's bascially automatic, but you'll need to have him come here / post in the forums and respond to figure out what's wrong and fix it permanently.06:54

icarus-cFritzy, in chroot?07:20
Fritzyicarus-c: no, just sudo07:20
xrfanghow to downgrade video card driver in kubuntu 10.10? after upgrade I periodically get "GPU hung" error (found in console as the X environment does not respond)07:20
Jordan_Ukevin_: When wubi is installed to a disk other than "C:" on upgrades grub is installed to the mbr, rather than to an image file within the windows partition, making the computer unbootable.07:20
Jordan_UFritzy: You need to "sudp chroot /target" first.07:21
kevin_Jordan_U, oh no...and I'm guessing there's no way to fix it?07:22
FritzyJordan_U: /target is empty.... sudo chroot fails with "/bin/bash : No such file ..."07:22
=== zook is now known as zook2
Jordan_Ukevin_: No, it can actually be fixed fairly easily. "sudo apt-get install mbr && sudo install-mbr /dev/sda" should do it, but the problem will come back next time the grub-pc package is upgraded.07:23
FritzyJordan_U: mounted it... trying now07:24
kevin_Jordan_U, ok, but can he do that from the LiveCD?07:24
Jordan_Ukevin_: Yes.07:24
kevin_and then he should be able to boot normally, Jordan_U ?07:25
Jordan_UGuest30358: Open a terminal then run "sudo apt-get install mbr && sudo install-mbr /dev/sda", make sure you copy that command exactly (without the quotes).07:25
Jordan_Ukevin_: Yes.07:25
kevin_Jordan_U, GREAT!07:25
FritzyJordan_U: now that I did sudo mount /dev/sda1 /target && sudo chroot /target ... my /dev/ seems incomplete.. and grub-install still cannot find a device07:26
homecablehow do i add eth1 ip
kiethsAnyone familiar with accessing root access for repairs on a USB Pendrive installation?07:26
histohomecable: /etc/network/interfaces07:26
Jordan_UFritzy: You need to bind mount /dev/ /proc/ and /sys/ into the chroot first.07:26
histo!sudo > kieths07:27
ubottukieths, please see my private message07:27
Jordan_UFritzy: sudo mount -o bind /sys/ /target/sys; sudo mount -o bind /dev/ /target/dev/; sudo mount -o /proc /targed/proc07:27
Jordan_U*-o bind on the last one as well.07:27
FritzyJordan_U: cool, now I have grub installed on /dev/sda how do I continue past the locked dialog?07:27

IpSe_DiXiThisto: i cant even get into recovery mode, plus im a noob and i wouldn't know what to do07:29
Jordan_UFritzy: Try adding "echo grub-install has been temporarily disabled, FIX THIS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE; exit 0" as the second line of /usr/sbin/grub-install07:29
histoIpSe_DiXiT: hold shift to get to the grub menu07:29

IpSe_DiXiThisto: ok let me try, brb, dont leave me plz, im like this since yesterday...07:29
Jordan_UFritzy: Then hopefully the installer will think grub-install ran successfully, as it will just exit with success.07:30
histoIpSe_DiXiT: there are others that can help as well i'm sure07:30
IpSe_DiXiThisto: yesterday i was here the whole afternoon and nobody helped...07:30
ActionParsnipGreyGhost: no as I dont use it07:31
kevin_Jordan_U, was there something missing after "/dev/sda" ?07:32
GreyGhostIpSe_DiXiT, do ctrl+alt +f1 when stuck at splash .. see wht it says ..07:32

ActionParsnipGreyGhost: if you close the browser, rename ~/.mozilla then rerun it, does it work ok?07:32
FritzyJordan_U: no dice.. tried within chroot and outside of it. :S07:32
Jordan_UFritzy: And before you reboot, make sure you run "update-grub" within the chroot.07:32
IpSe_DiXiTGreyGhost: already tried it, it says nothing07:32

kevin_Jordan_U, http://pastebin.com/Nf7mSAhd07:33
kevin_that's what came up07:33
kevin_is that correct then?07:33

shiweiis hacker use it to communicate?i am a freshman for ubuntu07:34
histoIpSe_DiXiT: well lets try this first07:34
ActionParsnipGreyGhost: ok then delete the new profile and rename your original one back in07:34
histoIpSe_DiXiT: reboot and get to the grub menu07:34
GreyGhostyep .. done that07:34
histoIpSe_DiXiT: then hit e to edit your mainline07:34
Jordan_Ukevin_: The command was supposed to be "install-mbr" not "install -mbr" (not that that matters now). Looking at the output further now.07:34
IpSe_DiXiThisto: i just did, and in the grub menu i had 4 opts07:34
ActionParsnipGreyGhost: could try the mozilla ppa, see if the later build helps07:34
RudyValenciaMy server offers Ubuntu installation via PXE booting and approx apt package caching - how cool is that? :D07:34
IpSe_DiXiThisto: ah ok07:34
IpSe_DiXiTwill do07:34
kevin_Jordan_U, Oh, okay. thank you.07:34
histoIpSe_DiXiT: then delete the quiet and splash portions and hit enter to boot that kernel07:34
ActionParsnipRudyValencia: nice07:34
GreyGhostActionParsnip, yeah .. was plannin on installing the mozilla builds now .. thanks07:35
ActionParsnipGreyGhost: try chromium daily, it has some sweet extensions and is better than firefox with flash (well, is here)07:35

histoIpSe_DiXiT: did you remove quiet and splash and hit enter?07:37
tioxfelon: For Windows, TrueCrypt.07:37
Jordan_Ukevin_: I can't see anything wrong in that output. Can he be on IRC while rebooted at the grub shell (or can you be and talk to him over the phone)?07:37

IpSe_DiXiThisto: 9.10>10.0407:39

kennethsimeI'm dual-booting, and want Ubuntu to mount my other partition at startup. Ideas?07:39
tioxI thought I was in another channel, wasn't paying attention.07:39
IpSe_DiXiThisto: will do right away07:39
FritzyJordan_U: modifying grub-install in chroot and outside07:40
histoIpSe_DiXiT: what screen is it hanging exactly?07:40
tioxAlso, I changed the top bar to say Start  User  Ubuntu07:40

histoIpSe_DiXiT: cd /var/log07:40
FritzyJordan_U: doesn't help me get passed the dialog07:40
histoIpSe_DiXiT: and start looking at various logs like cat syslog07:41
Jordan_UFritzy: Try doing the same with /usr/sbin/update-grub.07:41
FritzyJordan_U: in chroot or out?07:41
Jordan_UFritzy: In.07:41
AndChatkennethsime: won't the fstab do that?07:41
IpSe_DiXiThisto: ok07:41
IpSe_DiXiThisto: how do i open the logs?07:42
kevin_Jordan_U, ok...now it's not even letting him get into Windows07:42
IpSe_DiXiTim in var/log07:42
Jordan_UFritzy: And confirm that it worked with "grub-install; echo $?" and "update-grub; echo $?" (should print the message then "0" for successfull completion).07:42
kiethshisto: !sudo fails.  /etc/sudoers mode 0644, should be 0440.  No Recovery mode (USB Pendrive with persistence).07:42
histoIpSe_DiXiT: cat logname  will put the output on teh terminal. Or you can open them with nano.   nano logname07:42
histokieths: what are you trying to do exactly?07:43
Jordan_Ukevin_: What happens when he tries to boot? He hasn't done anything that should have changed anything.07:43
FritzyJordan_U: both echo the message and then echo's 0 within chroot /target07:43
ActionParsnipkieths: then boot to an alternative Linux OS and chmod the file properly07:43
kiethshisto: fix sudo07:44
Jordan_UFritzy: Can you continue now?07:44
histokieths: what groups is your user in?07:44
FritzyJordan_U: no, the button depresses, but nothing else changes07:44
kevin_he's saying that its comes up MBR to choose Ubuntu or Windows 7, and then when he chooses either of them it tells him to restart the computer. Something about using the Windows CD to repair.07:45
kiethshisto: single user, ubuntu, not under a group07:45
kevin_Jordan_U, that's what he's telling me07:45
* GreyGhost kicks firefox..07:45
IpSe_DiXiThisto: the last thing i read in "dmesg" is "padlock: VIA PadLock not detected" ???07:45
Jordan_Ukevin_: What exactly does happen? Error message, blinking cursor on a black screen?07:45
histokieths: who are you logged in now as?07:46
* GreyGhost kicks firefox07:46
bazhangGreyGhost, stop that07:46
* GreyGhost starts up opera to download chrome ..07:46
histoIpSe_DiXiT: well dmesg will only be for the current boot you'd have to look at the saved ones07:46
ActionParsnipGreyGhost: please dont spam like that07:46
kiethshisto: auto-login to user ubuntu (only the one account, admin)07:46
GreyGhostActionParsnip, bazhang sorry07:46
kevin_Jordan_U, no blinking cursor, just a black screen. When he goes into either options, it's Enter to continue or escape, and they both restart the computer07:46
Jordan_Ukevin_: Maybe it's a bug in the installer UI rather than in the installation /dpkg scripts themselves.07:46
IpSe_DiXiThisto: shall i look at "boot.log"?07:47

Jordan_Ukevin_: What happens if you try to close the window?07:47
DalaristHello everyone.  I've run into a sticky issue, and didn't know if this is the right place to ask?07:47
histokieths: type groups in a terminal and see if you are a member of the admin group07:47
histoIpSe_DiXiT: i'd look at that and syslog07:47
FritzyJordan_U: confusing me with kevin_? I can't close the window either... no reaction.07:47
ActionParsnipGreyGhost: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily/ppa; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get -y install chromium-browser07:47
Jordan_Ukevin_: So he is seeing options?07:47
FritzyJordan_U: I can go to the right-click menu and close07:47
GreyGhostActionParsnip, thanks07:47
ActionParsniphi starn07:47
histoIpSe_DiXiT: another option maybe something with power management is buggy try booting with acpi=off07:47
FritzyJordan_U: but that doesn't do anything either07:47
histoIpSe_DiXiT: you would do that by hitting e and adding that to the line07:48
kevin_Jordan_U, there's no window. It's just the MBR telling him those two choices, and when he goes to either of them it gives the same problem for each choice07:48
Jordan_Ukevin_: Ahh, discard my comment about the closing the window and the installer UI, that was meant for Fritzy07:48
kevin_lol no problem Jordan_U07:48

FritzyJordan_U: sorry to make you juggle.. if I reboot, I imagine it'll boot to an uncompleted install. Is there some way I can finish the install?07:49
Jordan_UFritzy: You may just have to use the alternate install CD, or "sudo pkill dpkg" and hope the install then completes in a usefull state ( I doubt it will ).07:49
ActionParsnipkieths: its how you can control access, if you remove your user from the cdrom group for example, it will not have access to optical media07:49

histoIpSe_DiXiT: yeah ctrl+c is a kill signal08:06

MACscrrww: more specifically, this is the error i got last time: http://pastebin.com/VAzWqiZW08:06

etherealiteflash works as long as you don't keep any vids paused for more than an hour08:15

etherealiteelse flash sound stops working.08:15
pLrIpSe_DiXiT: you need to press = to resolve ur problem, plug a different keyboard to your comptuer08:15
lyteActionParsnip: "dpkg -L apt" lists it as being part of that package :(08:15
noisewaterphdetherealite: what version of flash?08:15
histolyte: there is apt-file08:15
IpSe_DiXiThisto,pLr: i just found out the UUID of my swap its different from the one on my fstab08:15
etherealitenoisewaterphd the newest flash in the repos08:16
histolyte: that would just be a cron job for auto updates maybe?08:16
histolyte: the one you want back08:16
pLrIpSe_DiXiT: that is normal08:16
ActionParsniplyte: dpkg -S   shows it in the apt package, if you reinstall that package you can get it, or extract the deb and manually copy the file in place08:16
DalaristAction : in summary it looks like the hardware is working fine, the dhcp server is fine, the dhcpclient is fine, and in fact if I force a dhcp request it all works together, but nothing during boot is making that request.08:16
lytehisto: yeh basically, but i'd rather use the one from the package than right it myself08:16
lyteActionParsnip: I have reinstalled the package :(08:16
histolyte: I dunno how you got the cron job in the first place08:16
aphidAndChat - you still around?08:17
ActionParsniplyte: then the deb will be in /var/cache/apt/archives   copy it to $HOME and extract it, you will then get the file08:17
lytedon't know if I ever have... just investigating why my apt cache never updates automatically08:17
lyteActionParsnip: yeh i might do it08:17
etherealiteSo whats the deal? Do I have to restart firefox as soon as it gets slow?08:17
histolyte: because it doesn't oon anyones system.08:17

lytehisto: documentation says it will08:17
lytehisto: hence looking for that file08:17
histolyte: what documentation?08:18
ActionParsnipDalarist: sounds like a bug, you can add the command in /etc/rc.local to run the command after stuff happens as a work around, add it above the exit 0 line08:18
lytehisto: the googled and now lost in teh tab abyss kind :p08:18
lytehisto: i'll try a few things like apt-file first08:18
etherealiteActionParsnip So whats the deal? Do I have to restart firefox as soon as it gets slow?08:18
histolyte: okay well ubuntu isn't set up that way08:18
noisewaterphdetherealite: the last stable flash for 64bit linux was 10.0, which I do not believe is i the repos. There is no 64bit 10.1. The repos must contain 10.2, which is really just a developer preview released by Adobe Labs. Expect a few bugs, and do them a favor by reporting them.08:18
ActionParsnipetherealite: i suggest you remove or disable addons to see what is making it slow08:18
ActionParsnipetherealite: thats all I got, I think firefox stinks08:19

lytehisto: also "man apt.conf"08:19
plumdoes the upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 automatically restart the computer?08:19

plumi've got some partitions i'm moving around and growing/shrinking with gparted. don't want them to die in the middle of it08:20
ActionParsnipetherealite: boot to root recovery console and add yourself to the group there08:20
histolyte: there is /etc/cron.daily/apt08:20
ActionParsnipplum: make sure your backups are sufficiently recent and you have less to worry about08:20
lytehisto: found the file, now. confusing cron.d and cron.daily... pebkac.08:20
noisewaterphdwhat are these "backups" you speak of?08:21
histolyte: how about locate have you ever used that?08:21
ActionParsnipnoisewaterphd: ?08:21
plumthey aren't very recent, :(  but i don't really have much to lose on these partitions. just don't want them to become un-recoverable08:21
aphidSo.. After updating to 10.10 I get a blank desktop after authentication.    after putting in a usb thumb drive, a browser for that showed up on the screen.. so it's not completely broken, but I have no menus08:21
noisewaterphdoh come on, that one was an obvious joke08:21
ActionParsnipplum: then tread carefully, backups before messing with partitions is a real smart move08:21
lytehisto: yeh, next time... issue is bad permissions (no +x) on the file08:21
histolyte: seems like the default way they do it08:22
ActionParsnipnoisewaterphd: i've been up too long as I ave a nightshift to work so I have to jig my body clock08:22
plumbtw... i have two linux-swap partitions on my /dev/sdb, should i delete one or both of them?08:22
ActionParsnipnoisewaterphd: so humour is lost on me right now08:22
noisewaterphdActionParsnip: no worries08:22
ActionParsnipplum: i think you can only have one, you can raid them though to get more swap space speed08:23
farciarz84hi, would you recommend me some tool to download/upload speed of my internet connection?08:23
farciarz84*to limit*08:23
ActionParsnipfarciarz84: www.speedtest.net/08:24
plumActionParsnip: they're both swapped on whenever i boot up my computer, but i don't know which one i should turn off / delete. do you have any suggestions? i sort of distrust swap in the first place...08:24
lytefarciarz84: i like trickle08:24
farciarz84ActionParsnip: to limit connection08:24
ActionParsnipplum: its like thepage file in windows except its on its own partition so it doesnt stick the place up08:24
plumahh gotcha08:24
plumActionParsnip: do you know how i would figure out which one of those is safe to remove? i could use the extra space08:25
gilanialiis it possible to have a set of command execute everytime a user logs in using ssh?08:25
ActionParsnipplum: i'd just remove whichever is smallest, ideal for swap is 1xRAM for 2Gb RAM or more and 2xRAM for less than 2Gb RAM08:25
ActionParsnipplum: whichever, I suggest you consult your /etc/fstab   to see whats going on08:25
richardcavellIs there a program that will allow me to record my voice stop and start, like a dictaphone?08:25

plumso i think the one from that installation is still there08:28
