Dr_Willismetaphaze:  Huh?  not having a root password is not a security flaw. its a security enhancement accordding the the info on the topic ive read.01:41
Solveddougb_freebsd: I am willing to take the risk in order to learn01:41
nUOVOmetaphaze: and why it doesn't ask during install?01:41
SolvedIf you tell me the correct commands, I will not make the mistake01:41
plainasroot doesn't come enabled by default, you'll have to sudo -s then passwd to set a password for the actuall root user01:41
rdw200169Dr_Willis is right, sudo > root01:41
Dr_Williscon-man:  http://ubuntu-tutorials.com/2008/05/09/a-root-shell-on-ubuntu-the-right-way/01:41
metaphazeDr_Willis, so who is root then? The creator of the enviroment? The first account installed?01:42
Solvedis there a command to get rid of older (useless) kernels?01:42
ubottusudo is a command to run command-line programs with  superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli ) . Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For  graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with  sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo01:42
Dr_Willismetaphaze:  there is the root account.. but by default its basically 'locked down'01:42
ejvSolved: rm /boot/<kernel>01:42
plainasroot is the system administrator, with maximum privileges01:42
metaphazeDr_Willis, sounds good, but dangerous if the user uses less then secure passwords, or other issues.01:42
Dr_WillisSolved:  see what versions yu got installed. use the proper 'sudo apt-get remove XXXXXXX' command to remove them.01:42
ejvomg enough about root and sudo, take it to offtopic already...01:42
* ejv facepalms01:42
SolvedDr_Willis: how do I determine which kernel's I have installed, that is my question01:43
dougb_freebsdworking as root and working with sudo are completely different perspectives .... the ubuntu way is to use sudo, so if you're running ubuntu don't worry about root ... simple :)01:43
Dr_Willis!apt | Solved01:43
ubottuSolved: APT is the Advanced Package Tool, which together with dpkg forms the basic Ubuntu package management toolkit. Short apt-get manual: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGetHowto - Also see !Synaptic (Gnome), !Adept (KDE) or !KPackageKit (KDE)01:43

Those jurisdictions are California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington. Be aware that you will sometimes hear these referred to inaccurately as “two-party consent” laws. If there are more than two people involved in the conversation, all must consent to the taping.02:40

xanguaroasted: using pop¿03:46
roastedimap, with gmail xangua03:46
heshamjayd3e: yes you can as long as the kernels are the same version, make sure you copy the firmware as well (/usr/lib/firmware or /lib/firmware)03:46
jayd3ehesham:  how would I go about transfering the drivers?  and exactly what directories would I have to transfer03:47
xanguaroasted: then just drag them to the trash directory instead of deleting it using the evolution menu03:48
roastedxangua, is that a serious suggestion03:49
BadAnthemsAround The World - Dune Greatest Hits (Utmost nice music)03:49
heshamjayd3e: you should transfer the kernel modules for the RT wlan, which driver are you using? the rt2860sta?03:49

BadAnthemsroasted: Always copy important stuff before you remove it. To move means no inbetween storage mostly.03:53
heshamjayd3e: yes its somewhere in there, use "find -name rt*sta*" to find the exact location03:53
roastedBadAnthems, I'm not trying to copy anything. I jsut want my emails deleted when I select delete. I don't want them re-emailed to me 20 seconds after I intentionally delete them.03:53
heshamNahledge: no, in the output there should be Access Point: xx:xx:xx...03:53
genupulasi wanna install "gaim" Im03:53
BadAnthemsroasted: They are in your mailserver queu ?03:54
roastedBadAnthems, I use evolution at work, and I dont have this issue. I just decided to use evolution at home because I like the extra functionality but I can't seem to figure out why I just get my emails back that I delete.03:54
genupulasbut it was replaced by pidgin how can i get "gaim"03:54
heshamgenupulas: install pidgin its the new gaim03:54
NahledgeOkay let me rephrase this. The only thing I know how to find is the SSID (I think its called this) in this case its Anges1.03:54
roastedBadAnthems, well, I'm using gmail with imap. I don't have anything in my gmail web interface at the moment...03:54
roastedBadAnthems, not sure if that answers your question.03:54
xanguagenupulas: pidgin is formelly gaim......03:54
NahledgeKnowing nothing of linux, and starting at this point.03:54
NahledgeWhere do i go from there03:54
roastedBadAnthems, however, it says I have 1 email in my inbox, yet when I click on inbox, it says empty. lol?03:54
jayd3ehashem: do i want the one in /net/wireless or in /staging?03:55
BadAnthemsroasted: Set your Evolution email client to not delete emails and somehow the database pulls what you already have maybe ?03:55
heshamNahledge: maybe you should mention the main problem, are you trying to connect to a wireless network and having issues?03:55
BadAnthemsroasted: From the pop server03:55
heshamjayd3e: /net/wireless03:55
roastedBadAnthems, by pop you mean imap? mine is set up as imap.03:55
jayd3ehashem: and also is that really the only driver I need, because I went through a whole process of installing a driver and it embedded a number of files in my system>03:55
NahledgeNo I'm trying to figure out the mac address or any information on it in general. In order to use aircrack-ng03:55
jayd3ehashem:  were all of those files only necessary to create that one file?03:56
BadAnthemsroasted: you always have a pop/imap server03:56
genupulasxangua,  when i am going to connect with gtalk it not getting connect and showing ssl error and connecting with other yahoo,msn etc only the problme with gtalk account03:56
genupulasxangua,  username and paswd fine for that from me03:56
heshamNahledge: oh, so you're not connected to it already, then use iwlist scan03:56
BadAnthemsroasted: Put and get. This is what email is about. Some also have push, but thats hardly good securitywise03:57
genupulasxangua,  but when i deleted already added acnt and adding it again then it will for that session only03:57
xanguagenupulas: no problems here using the latest pidgin 2.7.503:57
genupulasxangua,  ok03:57
genupulasxangua,  let me check my version03:58
genupulasits 2.7.303:58
roastedBadAnthems, hm, I see. I dont know, its just confusing me as to why this is happening. I dont have this with thunderbird on the same email acts....03:59
genupulasxangua,  is it possible update specific pkg03:59
xanguanever had problems with that version either genupulas, you could try #pidgin but i don't think there are too many people alive at this hour03:59
jayd3ehashem: and also is that really the only driver I need, because I went through a whole process of installing a driver and it embedded a number of files in my system>03:59
jayd3ehashem:  were all of those files only necessary to create that one file?03:59
genupulaslet me xangua04:00
xanguagenupulas: yes, you can update pidgin following the instructions at pidgin.im04:00
heshamjayd3e: most likely yes this is the only file you need. there should be no harm trying to load the module and checking the dmesg output, if anything else is required it would show you there04:00
BadAnthemsroasted: Same isp's in between the mailserver/pop server ?04:01
roastedBadAnthems, same everything. same dang computer.04:01
roastedBadAnthems, I can open thunderbird, works fine. same two gmail accts, imap, setup, etc.04:01
icekCan someone direct me to a good OSX theme?04:01
roastedBadAnthems, I mimiced the same setup to evolution when I began to adapt to it tonight04:01
roastedBadAnthems, but like I said I have this issue...04:01
BadAnthemsroasted: You have forgotten something. What it is i cannot tell :)04:02
roastedBadAnthems, um..04:02
roastedI'd be really, really happy if you'd tell me.04:02
jayd3ehashem:  one more question, shouldn't the two installs be acting the same as far as my wireless goes?  does the server install not have a module installed tht it needs?04:02
roastedseeing as though this is a support channel and I'm quite frustrated, to be completely honest with you.04:02
BadAnthemsroasted: Trust me, youve forgotten a tiny detail somewhere in your setup. Go over it again!.04:03
heshamjayd3e: rtsta module need compilation, it can't be included the default installation due to license issues04:03
roastedBadAnthems, Ive been over my setup about 40 times.04:03
roastedseriously... can you just give me an indication on what you are referring to.04:03
BadAnthemsroasted: Ah, a deadlock. Remove the new email client. Erase this email clients settings in your home directory: "ls -la"04:04
roastedBadAnthems, you think thunderbird's settings being existent (even though thunderbird isnt running) could result in that happening with evolution??04:04
jayd3ehesham:  right but I went through the same exact process to install rtsta module in my Ubuntu-Desktop install as I did with the server and yet somehow I got results on one and not the other.  It is important to note, that on my Server Edition install, wlan0 never changed to ra0 after compilation; however it did on the Ubuntu-Desktop install04:05
BadAnthemsroasted: No, the new email client's settings04:05
CodeWarwhile building the ubuntu kernel using instructions from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile ... doing make mrclean takes out the debian/ directory04:05
roastedBadAnthems, the "new" email client is evolution. You want me to wipe evolution's settings?04:05
CodeWarany idea whats the best way to bring it back04:05
BadAnthemsroasted: Yes, and evolution. Then install it and begin again.04:05
roastedBadAnthems, and evolution - you mean and thunderbird? :P04:06
wrektjethello. is there a program that can tell me the wattage my comp is using?04:06
mzuverinknessus in any repos?04:06
BadAnthemsroasted: Just evo. It should work, i trust you.04:06
heshamjayd3e: well it seems the built-in modules were not blacklisted, you tried rebooting the server? or if that's not possible then try modprobe -r (any old modules) and reload rtsta04:07
roastedBadAnthems, hm, thats strange because I JUST set up evolution...04:07
roastedBadAnthems, but Im trying with both tbird and evo removed, then setting up evo again.04:07

roastedxangua, you've told me this like 8 times.04:42

dougb_freebsdwow, there are bans there that are 200 days old04:45
dougb_freebsdthat's impressive04:45
roastedpoohstix, new, because I moved from thunderbird to evolution.04:45
celvindougb_freebsd, delete it, add it, and check the option auto start04:45
heshamroasted: after deleting, did you try to expunge trash and see if the messages still return?04:46
poohstixhesham: good thinking.04:46
dougb_freebsdcelvin: delete the interface in that same tool?04:46
roastedhesham, yep. I deleted them and did that REAL quick trying to beat it. But they still came back when I hit send/receive.04:46

starnMagusOTB_: is totem CLI?04:58

MagusOTB_You can start it from the cli... Are you talking about like framebuffer CLI?04:58

roastedthanks for trying bro05:02
starnrotrot: i'm using my own playlist to files on my computer.05:02
roastedhesham, I posted on the forums under the username roasted about this issue. If you find a fix and think of it, could ya bump my thread with some input? :)05:02
heshamroasted: sure i will keep checking05:03
starnMagusOTB_: yes i mean as in no Xserver. command line interface like moc and mplayer. and few others.05:03
Chaos2358hey guys i just upgraded through update manager from 10.04 to 10.10 and cant find software sources among many other small problems can anyone work with me to try and resolve a few?05:04
taofdcan any artists here recommend me any *good* drawing apps that they actually use for their professional works?05:04
MagusOTB_starn: no. but if you're manly enough to be using framebuffer movie players, can't you use sed to convert a pls file into a shell script that will invoke several mplayer instances in sequence?05:04
heshamroasted: you are not running any other client at the same time? mobile client, another computer etc?05:04
roastedhesham, nope. :(05:04

ubottudiego, please see my private message05:04
taofdsnarkster, do you actually use it for production work? i feel that the way layers are organized and some of the other UI features is kind of awkward :(05:05
starnMagusOTB_: i'm just getting into this CLI stuff and i'm loving it so far.05:05
heshamroasted: you see when you delete IMAP messages in evo it doesn't remove them just marks them for deletion, and finally deleted when you empty trash. it seems some other client is unmarking them in the meantime05:05
rwwmaco: your pastry hat's showing05:05
macotaofd: um im not professional, but MyPaint is *excellent* -- if you have a tablet.  i do brush calligraphy with it, but its got watercolour and oil simulations as well05:05
macorww: oh right i was gonna remove some old +q's05:05
roastedhesham, what if I switch from imap to pop?05:05
taofdmaco, okay i'll take a look at it05:05
snarkstertaofd: actually my artist friend who is sitting on the couch across from me uses it daily.. I turned him onto ubuntu and he hasnt looked back05:05
heshamroasted: it should delete directly from the server when using POP05:06
=== zipp0 is now known as zipchick
roastedhesham, so if I switch to pop, technically the issue would be sorta resolved. right?05:06
heshamroasted: yes05:06
roastedhesham, the only downside is, if I leave my client open, I cant hit my inbox with messages that evo would have already intercepted. right?05:06
poohstixroasted: careful -- pop has a subset of the features of imap.  You might be disappointed.05:07
macoroasted: right05:07
snarkstertaofd: there is a learning curve but it is free05:07
roastedpoohstix, I really dont see what "features" I would be missing out on. I just want my email to send/receive/delete :P05:07
poohstixroasted: :-)  Got it.05:07
macoroasted: you should be able to set which dir to use for Trash, no?05:07
roastedmaco, I think so... I think I saw that option... let me check quick.05:08
heshamroasted: you will not be able to use server side folders with POP, only Inbox, no sent items etc.05:08
macoroasted: then set it to use your webmail's Trash dir, so it moves deleted messages there, that way when you empty trash on webmail or expunge in evolution, itll be the same thing05:08
snarkstertaofd: can we talk private for a sec.. I wanna send you a link to my friends deviant art page.05:08
taofdsnarkster, sure thx05:08
roastedmaco, ehh I have a thing here for drafts and sent, but not trash. ehh.05:08
macoroasted: oh boo. i wonder if that was why i switched to KMail...05:08
poohstixroasted: Which provider?05:09
roastedmaco, I really, really like evolution. I just. want. to. delete. my. email. :(05:09
roastedmaco, I dont have this problem with evo at work, and I use imap at work...05:09
roastedpoohstix, comcast is my ISP, gmail is the email I'm using.05:09
dougb_freebsdSo on my network issues, the network manager icon is showing in the upper right of my screen, but it says it's not running05:09
macoroasted: the "expunge" option (ctrl+e iirc) should force the delete...but if its using a local trash instead of remote im not sure how well thatd work05:10
dougb_freebsdand the app is enabled in the startup list05:10
roastedmaco, hm, do you know how to tell which one its deleting to?05:10
dougb_freebsdIn order to get this connection to autostart again I had to edit /etc/network/interfaces05:10
maco*sigh* i think this is telling me what the next patch i should write is... make-evo-trash-configurable.patch05:10
macoroasted: well if theres no config optino for what dir to use as trash, then it only has a local one :-/05:10
poohstixroasted: (Sorry for following -- not a gmail user) So you're using IMAP to gmail, which is fetching mail from comcast?  Rather than accessing comcast imap directly?05:11
roastedmaco, why isnt this an issue for me at work then? Granted Im using exchange and not gmail, but I'm still using imap...05:11
heshamroasted: gmail delete does not work with evo05:11
roastedhesham, whaaaaaat.05:11
heshamroasted: http://thegreyblog.blogspot.com/2009/06/gmail-with-evolution-and-trash-bin-how.html05:11
dougb_freebsdgmail's implementation of imap does not follow the specs05:12
roastedso maybe Ill just use pop05:13
macoyeah, that was *definitely* why i went to KMail...05:13
macocuz i'm a gmail user05:13
roastedI only used imap cuz I was told to use it05:13
roastedmaco, so kmail handles the gmail thing better?05:13
roastedmaco, that whole K thing scares me tho...05:13
dougb_freebsdpersonally I'm quite fond of tbird 3, it's what tbird was trying to be all along05:13
heshamroasted: i guess its better to switch to thunderbird/kmail/zimbra desktop instead of evo+pop05:13
macoyou tell it "use [GMail]/Trash as trash" and then it *does* and everything is lovely05:13
roastedI've tried KDE so many times and been let down... well... every single time...05:13
macoroasted: you can use kde apps within gnome :P  amarok is very popular!05:14
rwwmaco: mail clients doing what you want? what is this heresy05:14
roasteddougb_freebsd, I like tbird a lot, but I want a calendar integrated with my client - and dont even bring up the lightning extension... many headaches there.05:14
macoand when you reach the point of "this gnome app doesnt have the configuration option i want" ... well, thats the point where kde apps start looking good ;-)05:14
roastedmaco, yeahhhh I know. I just try to stay as gnome-pure as possible. come to think of it that sounds kind of stupid, but hey.. is what it is :P05:14
macoroasted: i used to do the same because qt3 was ugly and didnt know how to match theme with the gnome desktop. qt4 can look native though05:15
roastedhesham, this link is also from 2009 ya know... I wonder if theres been a patch? Then again, if it still aint working, I guess not :P05:15
roastedmaco, yeah.. I dont know.. gnome looks normal and presentable to me. I just dont like anything at all about kde apps or kde in general. font choices, size, etc, its all off to me.05:15
heshamroasted: i don't think there is a patch, if there is you would see the option to selece the trash folder alongside sent items and drafts in your evo settings05:16
roastedif I go with pop with gmail, what EXACTLY would I be missing out on?05:16
macothere isnt a patch05:16
macoi was just saying i probably ought to write one05:16
heshamroasted: POP has no folder support, no support to save sent items or drafts on server05:16
=== gantry is now known as gantrixx
poohstixroasted: iirc, IMAP pulls down headers without needing to pull down mail body.  With POP it's all or nothing.05:17
roastedhesham, wait, did you read the last entry on that link?05:17
poohstixroasted: aha!05:17
dougb_freebsdI'm running 10.10, and the version of grub2 that's installed has a regression. I'd like to downgrade grub2 to the version that was in 10.04, how can I do that?05:17
roastedthey came back anyway05:18
roastedseriously. how has this bug lasted this long in evo.05:18
heshamroasted: its not an evo bug, its a gmail issue, gmail does not adhere to IMAP specifications05:19
gantrixxA weird thing happened when I rebooted.  It didn't boot up into gdm05:19
roastedhesham, oh. so how can kmail get away with it?05:19
gbear14275hey guys, I just extended the root lv of a headless machine I have but when I run df it doesn't seem to reflect the new room.  Did I do something wrong?05:19
gantrixxIs there a way to start the GDM/GNOME environment by the command line?05:19
macopoohstix: there's also dimap. i <3 dimap. it pulls everything down and caches locally so you have a copy like with pop, but it has all the nice folder support and everything. perfect mirroring of webmail and local maile.05:19
roastedpoohstix, whats the downside of "all or nothing?"05:19
heshamroasted: other clients have created workarounds for such issues, but again not in accordance with IMAP specs05:19
macoroasted: kmail gets away with it by having an option to pick a different dir to use as trash05:20
Guest39599I would like to stop the "extra" folders being created when creating a new user (in /home/newuser/ directory). Does anyone know where I should be looking? (it doesn't seem to be anywhere in the skel dir...)05:20
roastedmaco, ahh...05:20
roastedhesham, what is IMAP+05:20
poohstixroasted: main downside is bandwidth.  If you've got lots, no downside.  I still live in a 2400 baud world in my tiny little brain, sometimes.05:20

heshamramas: try dig www.google.com and see if it takes time to resolve (should be within 100-200 ms)06:10
ramasoh sorry..  Ill keep it as concise as I can. So it takes eons to connect, once connected for ssh for example, it works fine, ftp and all too.

sunithello , I am using ubuntu 8.04 LTS06:23

sunitI am using a jar file to integrate openbravo erp and magento ecommerce06:23

Blue1hanasaki: dimming as in something is greyed out?06:23
booksbuggyit's a private channel for my school's club06:24
heshamramas: i would start by disabling ipv6 (http://www.webupd8.org/2010/05/how-to-disable-ipv6-in-ubuntu-1004.html) then by checking if the machine can resolve its own hostname (check /etc/hosts for an entry pointing to hostname)06:24
aaron11^_^ no one???06:24
Blue1ramas: what hesham said06:24
xanguano idea booksbuggy, there is #Pidgin if you want to try luck, a little late here, midnight06:24

Blue1hanasaki: and are you running firefox?06:25
Blue1hanasaki: i have the same issues here.  I had to switch to chrome of opera to reslove.06:26
dw-aaron11: a module is missing, go find it ?06:26
heshamsunit: you can add a line to /etc/rc.local to run the jar file06:26
hanasakiBlue1: nuts06:26
hanasakiBlue1:  is there a ticket open?06:26
hanasakiBlue1:  I quit firefox and still have the same issue06:27
aaron11dw-, Uhh... A little bit more help?06:27
sunityes, I can , hesham.06:27
Blue1hanasaki: flash and firefox doesn't work correctly and you might have the 32 bit plugin and 64 bit plugin (flash) both installed at the same time.  removing the 32 bit plugin did NOT resolve the issue with firefox.06:27
ramasblue1: Ok will do, I think Ive tried, Im actually writing from the lap itself it works pretty fine is just this issue, and I could live with it... the thing that made me mad was when I opened an account at livestream06:27
Blue1ramas: exactly it dies...06:28
ramasblue1: will check the doc hesham said, will be back06:28
hanasakiBlue1:  checking.. how do I check which one?06:28
dw-aaron11: google the name of the missing module and how to install06:28
dw-aaron11: never used whatever youre usign sry06:28
Blue1hanasaki: http://pkill-9.com/wordpress/?p=38206:28
ramasblue1: YES YES!!! it keeps disconnecting and I cant open the webcaster or livestudio, cant even watch videos it keeps disconnecting, chat, and all06:28
sunitbut , hesham , I am using many jar files for different purpose for integration.06:28
aaron11dw-, ive been asking this 4 hours06:28
sunithesham , so I need to add differnt jar file to run as services06:29
Blue1ramas: afaik no open ticket - this did NOT resolve the issue, but it;s def. a problem06:29
heshamsunit: you can run as many jar files as you want on startup by adding them to /etc/rc.local06:29
ramasblue1: afaik???06:29
Blue1ramas: as far as I know06:30
dw-aaron11: maybe this will help http://google.com/search?q=netbeans+install+modules06:30
hanasakiBlue1:  Shockwave Flash 10.1 r102 File:  npwrapper.libflashplayer.so06:30
dw-aaron11: searching is the best skill06:30
sunithesham , How shall I add jar file to /etc/rc.local ?06:30
dw-aaron11: that and thinking :p06:30
Blue1hanasaki: yeah that's the 32 bit guy06:30
heshamsunit: no need to add the jar file, just add the line java -jar /path to your jar file06:31
dw-aaron11: g/l bro06:31
ramasblue1: oooh no open ticket where? in bugs in ubuntu? I opened 2 tickets at livestream, they stopped at me having a firewall and all and they couldnt give any answer.06:31
hanasakiBlue1:  then umm ubuntu installed what it shouldn't?06:31
sunityes, I understand , hesham.06:31
Blue1hanasaki: well - -no.  ubuntu refuses to use an alpha or beta anything even though the 64 bit alpha is WAY more stable then ther blessed 32 bit plugin.  But ubuntu use the 32 bit flash plugin in a 64 bit environment -- it works crappily.06:32
sunitbut , hesham , should I add all the path of jar file to rc.local ?06:32
heshamsunit: yes06:33
hanasakiBlue1:  hmm would think what you say would be reaosn enough to package something more stable06:33
hanasakiBlue1:  I am getting the same issue even with flash uninstalled06:33
sunitok, and all the jar will run as service . I am correct , hesham ?06:33
Blue1hanasaki: blame mark shuttleworth - owner/ceo of ubuntu06:33
heshamBlue1: there is no more a 64-bit flash player from adobe06:34
Blue1hanasaki: yup you will - firefox just don't work for crap on a 64 bit system flash or no flash - again no issues with chrome or opera06:34
heshamsunit: well they will just start on system boot06:34
xanguathere is a ppa for the new experimental 64bit plugin hesham Blue1 https://launchpad.net/~sevenmachines/%2Barchive/flash06:34

coconutzhow i do that?06:45

ramascan anyone else be kind enough of lending me a hand? please let me know06:49
vgoldwhat do you need?06:49
vgoldramas can you talk now?06:49
ramasvgold: Issue with a vostro v13 and weird annoying disconnections while using livestream media, seem to be related to ipv6 or something although I have disabled it from several howtos06:50
heshamramas: are you using wired or wireless? can you run some tests like tracepath -n www.google.com06:50
ramasvgold: running lucid, but it started happening on karmic, vostro came preloaded with jaunty in it didnt have any issues06:50
vgoldwhat error does the disconnection gives?06:51
ramashesham: It exhibits the SAME behaviour either by wireless or wired, everywhere, not only my router06:51
ramasvgold: on livestream no error, thats what has made it really difficult to fix, it just says disconnected in the chats, the streams, NEVER start and in the webcaster or livestudio app in flash I never pass from the authenticating please wait message06:52
vgoldYes, you re right, I get tired of this kind of problem with ubuntu, also here to get a solution but tht kind of yours is something tht will need some little more attention06:52
vgoldokay, do this, try to apt-get update it and lets see what message it will pop up with06:53
ramasvgold: I think is related to the fact that if I open a ssh, ftp or other service connection it takes some 22 secs to open the connection, from there it works fine no issues06:53
ramasvgold: my system is up 2 date u want me to try anyway?06:53
vgoldwell, if it work on port 22 you shouldn't border about it anymore then. Go ahead and use it06:54
vgoldjust to give it a try06:54
ramasvgold: just did it fetched all in 11secs ... Reading package lists... done06:54
vgoldI do that sometimes06:54
ramasvgold:I have an open window of chrome on livestream, no luck the chat tries to connect then it goes to disconnected, the stream never starts06:55
ramasvgold: I could live with this, all else works flawlessly is just that due to my job we opened a livestream account and Is irritating to be unable to admin or see the streams from my main laptop06:56
karthick87how to run bash script simply by double clicking it06:56
vgoldthe problem is with the chat, try maybe you can update the chat it self separately or look for it in the directory if you can06:56
ramasvgold: any more ideas? when the lap is freshly installed I had to disable.ipv6 resolution on firefox because it was taking eons for each link, chrome didnt need anything but both exhinbit the livestream issue, dont know if it is related06:57
vgoldcan you talk with me from yahoo instant messenger, I can sort this problem for you nightly?06:58

b14ckHi guys. I have a simple question. I've got ubuntu-one synced with two computers right now (using 10.10). However, I just realized that on my primary system ubuntu-one isn't syncing my files any longer. It says that it is when I go to system->prefs->ubuntuone, but it won't sync them and I see no indication that it is when I'm in my file manager looking at my folders. Any idea if this is a bug or if I've somehow messed it up?07:46
Ceazeairtonix, OK07:47
=== cong061 is now known as cong06
OsamaKcyrux, if someone knows the answer, they probably will try to help you.07:47
Ceazeairtonix, I tried Ubuntu but it has many errors, and I am fed up of them07:47
Ceazeairtonix, I think version 10.04 is better than maverick 10.1007:47
airtonixCeaze, the only difference between what you call a "version" (which is actually called a flavour".... is the desktop environment... (and you can have all the Desktop Environments install on the same computer)07:47
b14ckI also realized that when I right-click folders in my home folder, I no longer have the 'synchronize with ubuntuone' optino.07:48
b14ckIt disappeared from my right-click menu all together.07:48
cong06I'm trying to collect data from a whiptail radiobutton. How do I set a variable? Which variable is being set? I know the data goes to STDERR, but enclosing the command: v=`whiptail --radiobutton ...` doesn't work.07:48
cyruxok .. here is the deal , i have a wubi partition on my windows machine. i was getting low on space , so i decided to increase the partition using a shell script.07:48
Ceazeairtonix, 10.04 and 10.10 has same desktop environment I think??07:48
airtonixCeaze, if it is Ubuntu then yes.07:48
Ceazeairtonix, Ya07:49
cyruxthis creates another /home directory and a file under /host/ubuntu/disks/07:49
airtonixCeaze, default Desktop Environment for Ubuntu is called Gnome.07:49
Ceazeairtonix, ok then I will use Ubuntu 10.04 now, and will hope there are no errors07:49
EfthymiosHey, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to configure fluxbox on a fresh 10.10 install. I tried using the package manager to install it, then restarting gdm.07:49
Ceazeairtonix, I know07:49
Ceazeairtonix, Xubuntu is Xfce07:49
airtonixEfthymios, and then ?07:50
Efthymiosand then it came back with the same desktop manager as it had before I did that...07:50
padhuEfthymios: you may get help from #fluxbox07:50
Ceazeairtonix, So, finally i have to go back to those Gnome Feet07:50
Efthymiosalright, i'll try there. Thanks07:50
airtonixEfthymios, no you missed a step... you need to choose the Destop Environment from the login screen when you enter your username07:50

histoleoowu: and what are you capture settings in the volume control panel08:42
greppyxerox1: logcheck uses regexp filters, so if you are getting lots of information you don't want, take a look in /etc/logcheck/ignore.d.server/ to see some examples08:43

dvaskehi i'm having problems with scp command, when running it in verbose mode I can see it issues the command: command scp -v -r -t -- , but those last to dashes confuses the receiving server, how can I configure those?08:57

=== devil__ is now known as Mohan_chml
dvaskehisto, I dont know where they are comming from, support guys just said that it was them that was confusing their server08:59
histodvaske: do you have them in your command?09:01
histodvaske: get rid of the -t09:01
dvaskeno the command I type in is: "scp -r -v * asolsson@server:/path/to/"09:02
paranoid_ndroidhisto it should be 54Mbps09:02
histoparanoid_ndroid: yeah what sort of speeds are you getting?09:03
histodvaske: that's odd. You could try it the other way and ssee what hapens09:03
histodvaske: ex: log in the remote machine and request the file from your machine.09:03
paranoid_ndroidless than 1Mbps09:04
dvaskehisto, I'll try, but I'm not sure I can log in on remote machine09:04
histodvaske: you have to be able to push files to it09:05
histodvaske: ssh needs to be installed on asolssson@server <<< otherwise you can't copy files that way09:06
ubottuTo reset the gnome panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »09:06
dvaskehisto, yeah, but I think they have closed the login09:07
dvaskehisto, and I'm able to scp the files i need from another internal server in our company, just not from my laptop, and the only difference seems to be those two dashes in the scp command09:08
dvaskehisto, So I just tried the channel to see if anybody perhaps had a quick answer ;-)09:08
histodvaske: but their saying the 2 dashes are there you're not putting them in right?09:09
histodvaske: and I don't know how'd they block ssh but allow scp09:09
histodvaske: nvm that can be done. Try sftp maybe for the time being09:09
dvaskehisto, right, I'm not putting the two dashes, but they appear in the output when running with -v.09:10
histodvaske: I don't know that's wierd I would try sftp see if you can get in that way09:10
dvaskehisto, I dont know how they've closen ssh access either, but I'll give sftp a try - thanks for your help!09:11
histodvaske: I can confirm that scp works so it's some sort of problem with their setup not ubuntu or scp09:11
dvaskehisto, yea' I can also push the files to some other server, with scp, and from that push them again to the correct location, but pretty cumbersome...09:13
histodvaske: yeah then I would suspect the problem is the with the config of the server you are having the issue with.09:14

shashwatIs there any alternative to Adobe Flash Professional?09:21

histo!firewall | tavasti09:23
ubottutavasti: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Firestarter/Gufw (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE) also exist.09:23

shomonmight be good, or change php for whatever language you prefer09:23
tavastihisto, ok, thanks, I'll try that09:23
histo!info nis | Jonathan_09:23
ubottuJonathan_: nis (source: nis): clients and daemons for the Network Information Service (NIS). In component universe, is extra. Version 3.17-31 (maverick), package size 191 kB, installed size 796 kB09:23

mrnelson1986yoshie, nomodeset added to the boot line of the live cd will let you set up and install, also adding nomodeset to the boot line of the actual installation will let you get to a gui13:06
Incarusbenpowers23, pls paste again (new paste ;) )13:06
mrnelson1986nomodeset is the command (added to the quiet splash line of the boot line) yoshie13:06
Incarusyoshie, I think you can choose that when booting the cd13:06
mrnelson1986yoshie, also you may be able to do it by hitting F6 and choosing nomodeset13:07

ZykoticK9brad, if you want it for a server install, then perhaps VMware or KVM might be better actually....  good luck man (VirtualBox doesn't have an "easy" way to start VMs on boot, and I believe that VMware or KVM does)13:14
bradahh, thanks ZykoticK913:15
rooksbrad, theres normal headless vm support of vm13:15
rooksbrad, in virtualbox13:16
ozfalconI have created a new user on a headless server. But can't login as new user. Auth.log says PAM: user unknown.... how do I fix this?13:16
rooksbrad, i forgot its name, but its there, vboxremote or sth like that13:16
histoozfalcon: did you give the newuser a passwd and assign them any groups?13:16
kephucan anyone tell me how do I keep grub from pausing to mince my cdrom every time I boot? I mean, it's not like it does anything with it, there's no menu.lst items that tell it to "hey do something with the cdrom drive okay awesome"13:16
bradrooks: thanks, will look at both13:17
ZykoticK9ozfalcon, you can verify the user exists or doesn't by using "cat /etc/password | grep YOURNEWUSERNAME" - and yes, using "sudo passwd NEWUSERNAME" will set a password.13:17
ozfalconhisto, yes to both. sudo useradd -m -s /bin/bash -U -p password sentinal13:17
rooksbrad, the commoand for virtualbox headless is: vboxheadless, it comes along normal virtualbox-ose package, tho im sure its in virtualbox-puel13:17
histokephu: grub shouldn't be looking at the cdrom your bios mostlikely is13:17
ozfalconZykoticK9, User exists in /etc/passwd13:18
ZykoticK9ozfalcon, using adduser instead of useradd is a lot easier BTW13:18
histoozfalcon: seconds adduser13:18

SembianceMy computer was not powered off correctly (power loss). Now when booting I'm just starting at the Ubuntu logo. Is there a Key Combination I can press to view a console log of what it is doing right now?13:22
SembianceI'd like to see the boot process. My guess is it's doing a disk check or something13:22
histoSembiance: you can hold the shift key to get a grub menu13:22
jamesstanleySembiance: i would try f2, ctrl-alt-f1, ctrl-alt-f2 in that order13:22
kephuhisto, I could, but it's completely unmodified13:22
histoSembiance: then you should be able to boot to recovery mode13:23
IncarusSembiane, are you using kde?13:23
mexxSembiance: or boot in recovery mode13:23
histokephu: well it should have your menu entries in it.13:23
kephuhisto, also, this is not exclusive to ubuntu, this happens every time I get my linux on13:23
histokephu: make sure there is nothing related to cdrom.  I would double check your bios boot sequence13:23
SembianceIncarus: no, not using KDE, but not at that point yet.13:24
SembianceStill at the ubuntu menu with 5 red dots that are not changing heh13:24

jamesstanleymohanohi: is the volume turned up? that was my problem, it came with it defaulted to 9% volume13:24
histoSembiance: yeah or you can try hitting ctrl+alt+f1 through F613:25
gnomefreakkephu: you maybe want to try #linux if we can not help you here, but if it is not just Ubuntu that would be a better place IMHO13:25
mohanohijamesstanley: yes it is, i checked it through alsomixer13:25
kephualso, it's not that it tries to BOOT from CD-rom. What happens is this: grub outputs its plain "grub is loading", THEN minces the cd, then, after it's done with that, it loads the menu13:25

Dr_Willischadi:  upstart  uses /etc/init   Sysv - uses the /etc/rc* type dirs.14:34

Jovarohow can I stop ubuntu from autostarting X on startup?14:35
Dr_WillisJovaro:  disable the GDM service in /etc/init/14:36

Dr_WillisJovaro:  or use the kernel 'text' option at boot time.14:36
chadiDr_Willis, and I assume that the numbers represent the priority, right?14:36

camer0n_erUSUL, can you use something like gmail/hotmail/etc with sSMTP? just having a read of it at the moment14:36
erUSULJovaro: add text to boot options in /etc/default/grub ? run « sudo update-grub »14:36

ZanQdoActionParsnip: it doesnt match but I remember md5sum had problems with 32 bit vs 64 bit testing?14:37

erUSULJovaro: kdm xdm or whatever you use14:38
Jovaronone of those, maybe that is why it crashes14:38
halevent then you have to move up and down directories, and escape non alpha characters, which is also slower than a gui14:38
Dr_Willisreplicasex:  you can install the netbook-destop package.14:38
JovaroI just use fluxbox14:38
ActionParsnipreplicasex: sure, just install it and the deps will be used. te default WM is mutter which is a little slower than compiz14:38

ubottudelinquentme, please see my private message14:39
ActionParsnipreplicasex: if you emove unity and mutter, it should then mark the rest for removal afaik14:39
replicasexActionParsnip, I'm assuming the install isn't as extensive as a KDE install as it doesn't have to pull in so many libs and so on.14:40
Dr_Willisreplicasex:  thats an issue of how the meta-packages work..  the netbook stuff added a new meni entry to gnome for the Netbook interfaec.. is all i saw it do.14:40

erUSULsjm: yes i see that For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto can lead to ambiguity. as i said you can propose a better wording14:51
ActionParsnip!iptables | roni14:51
ubotturoni: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Firestarter/Gufw (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE) also exist.14:51
x-NihilCan anyone help?14:52
Dr_Willissachael:  gnome activity journal seems to be the gui to it.14:52
sjmroni.  yes, with iptables firewall you can only allow that ip14:52
makkuraerUSUL: editing a file via echo >> file  worked on my own files and presents me permission denied even with sudo on the root own file i intended to edit14:52
Dr_Willissachael:  http://www.ubuntugeek.com/nautiluszeitgeist-video.html14:52
Chaos2358xangua you in here?14:52
ActionParsnipmakkura: sudo doesn't traverse the redicrection14:52
Dr_Willismakkura:  when using >> with sudo. you need to use the 'tee' command and a few other tricks.14:52
ActionParsnipMAAAAD: echo "Text I want to write" | sudo tee /path/to/file14:53
Chaos2358xangua that link you gave me last night for gyachi isnt updated for maverick yet14:53
Madwillanybody know the implication of using something like an LPGL licensed framework into an application14:53
erUSULmakkura: with sudo you need « echo "something" | tee -a /etc/something »14:53
Dr_Willis echo "foo" | sudo tee /root/somefile14:53
makkuraerUSUL: nano leaves the text up to save the file rather than show and error.. it stays until i resize the window to for a refresh (damn putty :P)14:53
erUSULMadwill: LGPL allows linking to closed source software14:53
petanx-Nihil: just ask14:53
makkuraahh my bad on usage then, just a moment14:54
x-NihilI want to know what keyboard shortcuts I can set up without setting conflicting shortcuts with other programs.14:54
petanx-Nihil: you can display current shortcuts in your keyboard settings14:55
sjmerUSUL, I'd suggest "for motherboard raid" or "for bios ("hardware") raid" rather than "for software raid"14:55
camer0n_how do you declare a string variable in bash? i have been using "x=10" for numbers... but can you use "email=email@address.com"?14:55
petanx-Nihil: also do not use ctrl+alt+del ctrl+alt+fX ctrl+alt+backspace14:56
greppycamer0n_: email='something'14:56
NoiseEeehiya, what's the deal with "W: Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/intrepid-updates/multiverse/source/Sources.gz  404 Not Found [IP: 80]" during apt-get?14:56
makkuraerUSUL: it appends the comment the same as it did on my own files14:56
erUSULcamer0n_: email="email@address.com"14:56
NoiseEeewhat happend to interpid-updates?14:56
x-NihilAh. Thanks. Is Alt-fX fine?14:56
erUSULmakkura: then there is no problem that i can see14:56
camer0n_erUSUL, tried that... it's kinda screwing up :P14:56
camer0n_greppy, will try the single quotes14:56
camer0n_.... once i can exit the script14:57
erUSULcamer0n_: how is failing? give example14:57
petanx-Nihil: I do not recommend that as long it is chortcut for switching between tty's but should be disabled in X server mode14:57
camer0n_erUSUL, script is stuck :S14:57
petanx-Nihil: so it probably would work14:57
erUSULBluesKaj: hi14:57
camer0n_erUSUL, not responding. ctrl+c not killing14:57

NoiseEeeActionParsnip: odd, i didnt think my install was that old :\  how to tell what version of ubuntu im running14:58
x-NihilAlso, does anyone have any sort of link to a tutorial on the usage of OpenOffice Formula?14:58
makkuraerUSUL: double checking the ruby snippet i tried using.. may just be a problem over the chained connections vnc->putty then14:58
ubottuTo find out what version of Ubuntu you have, type « lsb_release -a » in a !shell - To know the available version of a package, « apt-cache policy <package> »14:58
camer0n_greppy, what do you mean by "expand variables"?14:58
luis_hasbonI was wondering if any of you has have problems or issues with sound in ubuntu maverick?14:58
greppycamer0n_: if var="testing" and you have var2="${var} again" var2 would be 'testing again'14:59
camer0n_can't kill script :S14:59
BluesKajluis_hasbon, did you just upgrade?14:59
ActionParsnipNoiseEee: lsb_release -a14:59
SomelauwOpenOffice formula is just clicking on the buttons to create a formula14:59

luis_hasbonI made a fresh cd install14:59
erUSULcamer0n_: ssmtp -s "nothing here" "$email" < msg.txt15:00
camer0n_greppy, how do you kill a script that won't stop with CTRL+C?15:00
erUSULcamer0n_: should work15:00
luis_hasbon<BluesKaj>: I made a fresh cd install15:00
x-NihilSomeone67: Oh, so it doesn't calculate anything on its own accord?15:00
Dr_Williscamer0n_:  some scropt  You made? or what exactly?15:00
sjmActionParsnip, what does "No LSB modules are available" from that command mean?15:00
Chellcamer0n_, kill from terminal15:00
camer0n_erUSUL, awesome. will do that...15:00
NoiseEeethanks Dr_Willis, ActionParsnip15:00
Dr_Willissjm:  means you forgot the -a15:00
luis_hasbonBluesKaj: I made a fresh cd install, do i ned to upgrade? I already mde an update15:00
ActionParsnipsjm: the rest will tell you the release15:00
ubottuThe Linux Standard Base, or LSB, is a joint project by several Linux distributions under the organizational structure of The Free Standards Group to standardize the internal structure of Linux-based operating systems. The LSB is based on the POSIX specification, the Single UNIX Specification, and several other open standards, but extends them in certain areas.15:01
* Dr_Willis has no idea what lsb modules are...15:01
camer0n_Dr_Willis, yeah... just something i have been trying to get working. simple script.15:01
sjmActionParsnip, no, I put in the "-a" and still got it.15:01
erUSULcamer0n_: check that the configuration is ok; it may be stuck in the authentification with gmail servers etc.15:01
ActionParsnipDr_Willis: me neither, i dont think its important for support either so I havent dug into it15:01
ActionParsnipsjm: me too but it still gives the release name15:02
sjmActionParsnip, yes, I was just curious about the message.  (I usually just use "cat /etc/issue")15:02
camer0n_erUSUL, i have a loop with a sleep command... i think that is the issue. will comment that out with testing :P15:03
BluesKajluis_hasbon, check alsamixer in the terminal..for some reason the ctrls are either mutd or turned down after upgrades15:03
* Chell is happy ssh is universal. Even under Haiku you can still run your favorite Ubuntu apps ;)15:03
camer0n_erUSUL, maybe i do not :S15:03
rigvedhi everyone15:03
luis_hasbonBluesKaj:  it says alsamixer cant be open, cant find the file or directory15:04
sjmerUSUL, did you see my suggestion for the ubottu wording above?  to whom do I make the suggestion?15:04
