cannonfodderhey does anyone know what its called when a program can be run from any terminal location?  for example, i can run "grep" or "ls"  from any directory...i have a program that i want to make global so that it can run when i just call it...can anyone help me with this00:13
ilovefairuzcannonfodder: put it in ~/bin00:14
[thor]cannonfodder: it means that those programs are in a directory that is included in a PATH00:14
cannonfodderthanks you guys but you gave 2 different answers00:14
cannonfodderso which one is it?00:14
zak_shcherbak: can i do that from konsole?00:15
shcherbakzak_: easiect way is to dump files on it, copy as much files as drive can handle.00:15
[thor]cannonfodder: ~/bin/ qualifies under my response00:15
yeatscannonfodder: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PATH_(variable)00:15
cannonfodderthanks yeas and thor00:15
yeatsif a directory is in your $PATH, it can be run without typing the full directory path each time00:16
yeatss/it/the programs in that directory/00:16
[thor]cannonfodder: /usr/bin is a relatively safe place to put your program00:17
shcherbakzak_: otherwise man shred00:18

XiD|Laphi all. i recently decided to give the netbook remix edition a try on my netbook, but i find the performance to be slow and chuggish. when i attempted to drop visual settings for better performance, everything was greyed out with 'mutter addon disables visual style changes' or something of the sort00:20

josh__how old is it?00:21
[thor]hellphyre: it supports layering, plugins, and all the usual stuff.. though most of the commands/functions have slightly different names00:22
shcherbakzak_: formatting drive removes partition table, so there is way to recover file. if you *overwrite* them then there is no chance to get former data.00:22

XiD|Lapswitch10_ what is your hardware on it? do you have greater than 1gb of ram?00:24

switch10_davey486: install startup-manager and set grub to time out after a second or so.00:28
XiD|Lapdavey486 you could probably change the GRUB timeout to 1 second, so you don't have a delay while booting your computer, but stil lhave the option of booting into recovery console without playing around in bios00:28
shcherbakdavey486: There are Gui Grub managers00:28
josh__or your talking about when it shows: Ubuntu(logo)00:28
josh__I think it only has it in OpenSUSE00:28
davey486No, not the login i menu the grub menu, I reinstalled and it started to have it, wasn't there before00:28
josh__I never saw one of those in Ubuntu00:28
intraderAnyone, in .profile I added VISUALWORKS=some-existing-path and followed with export VISUALWORKS. Then I start bash, but I don't I get blank to echo $VISUALWORKS. What gives? :(00:29

switch10_davey486: are you sure you reinstalled over the previous version?  sounds like you installed on another partition.00:29
josh__not that I can think of00:29
josh__unless you do it manullay00:29
davey486No, I did on same partition00:30
josh__That what I did too00:30
josh__wait, i put mine on another hard disk00:30
XiD|Lapdavey486 so you originally had no grub menu, reinstalled over your existing partition, and now grub shows up - and you don't want it to. is that correct?00:30
josh__My hard disk (which has windowsXP) cannot want to partition00:30
XiD|Lapdavey486 and setting grub to a 1 second timeout is not sufficient?00:30
Slix`... Can I repeat my question?00:31

davey486I always choose to use the whole disk in the install option00:32
XiD|Lapdavey486 that is beyond my level of expertise. i could offer some guesses, if you'd like00:32
risa212please go to chat server #21200:32

rwwrisa212: stop that, please00:32
Slix`I want to run some commands at every startup (rules for iptables). How would I do that?00:32
josh__stop using this as a ad!00:32

Chaos2358how do i get root access to my drive? i am trying to extract a file and i need to place part in /usr/sbin/ and part into /etc but when i try it tells me permission denied00:33
josh__Either you do it when your computer startsup (press a combitaion of keys) or in the control panel00:33
XiD|Lapdavey486 perhaps it was configured to run silently somehow (don't know if this is possible/how to do it sorry) and reinstalling simply put a fresh version of GRUB on with default settings, thus you are now seeing it00:33
josh__That isn't how it works00:33

XiD|LapSlix` honestly the best way to learn about the os is just to tool around in it. start clicking on everything and see what it does. also google 'basic linux command line' or some sort to learn the ultra basics, like cd, pwd, ls, cp, etc00:44

k-radConnor1, if your kernels are intact the crunchbang kernels should be prefixed as such you can boot into a live usb and mount your root directories on your dual boot linux install, and see what you can find there as far as determinating installation .locales00:48
DrManhattanoh now it's a chat notification using the mail icon - lovely00:48

dragonI had an ongoing upgrade on a server that I managed to lose console control of. I came across a file keep/overwrite prompt, so I dropped to a shell to examine the situation, then hit Ctrl+C and ended up closing do-release-upgrade process and getting back to the console where I started the upgrade. Now dpkg is running but cannot proceed without clearing the prompt that I cannot see. What do?00:55

Nathan_BSI am trying to install Ubuntu onto my old computer through a CD drive, but the startup system isn't recognizing the iso file on the CD. Can somebody help?01:24
yeatsintrader: you might benefit from reading up on this before continuing - here's a Google Books link to a book on the basics: http://goo.gl/noCf201:24
TheAlienNathan_BS: it sounds like u buern01:25
TheAlienburned the iso file as a file01:25
TheAlienyou need to burn it as an image01:25
Nathan_BSI used infrarecorder to burn the file onto the CD, like the Ubuntu site told me to01:26
Nathan_BSDid I have to change any settings?01:26
intraderyeats, when I set VISUALWORKS in .bashrc, it works. I will check out the link.01:26
TheAlienoh, i dunno then. never used that before01:27
TheAlienbut if you look at the files on the cd and all you see is your one .iso file, its wrong01:27
yeatsNathan_BS: when you say that the startup system isn't recognizing the file, what exactly is happening?  Does your computer skip the CD and boot into your OS? or is there an error?01:27
TheAlienthe iso file is a disk image with lots of files01:27
yeatsintrader: good01:28
intraderyeats, thanks for the help01:28
Cernunnos_for those who where here for that : http://paste.ubuntu.com/530333/ seems to be an image problem, seems to work with another iage01:28
yeatsintrader: sure - good luck!01:29
Nathan_BSOkay first I had to change the startup order from SATA to CD-ROM because it was checking the SATa first and finding windows, but then it kept saying it could not find an OS to start up on01:29
Cernunnos_well nevermind it doesn't work in fact lol01:30
yeatsNathan_BS: might be a bad burn... do you have more CDs?01:30
hblounthi. is there a way to mount an image in wine so it is recognized by game in wine?01:31
Nathan_BSI don't believe so. I have some DVD-RW's in the other room, though. A DVD would work right?01:32
yeatsyes, it should work fine01:32
Cernunnos_Nathan_BS, I have a similar prolem if the disc is too thin or bad quality or so...01:33
pepperjackhblount: i think you could mount it to /media/cdrom or whatever then symlink that to ~/.wine/dosdevices/d:  or something01:33
Cernunnos_Nathan_BS, you can also remove the HDD from the boot order using x in the BIOS boot menu01:33
Slix`ipfilter seems to come with Ubuntu. How do I enable it?01:34
Nathan_BSI've already removed the HDD drive via the setup utility. I had to in order for it to attempt to start from the CD01:34
pepperjackhblount: oh. simpler method will be to run winecfg then add a drive letter pointing to the mount point01:35
Cernunnos_ok guys, I had an error trying to install ubuntu, I downloaded a different image and burnt it on another CD, i still have the first part of this error : http://paste.ubuntu.com/530333/ the second part is gone01:35

XuMuKpitlimit: you can see win partition on ubuntu, but not viceversa..01:51
aeMaethoh ya, and you could make a 3rd "data" drive if you want01:51
pitlimitoh that's weird01:51
pitlimiti thought people do it al the time01:51
shcherbakpitlimit: make extra fat partition, and use links to have fast accces01:51
greezmunkeypitlimit: the easiest (safest for your win7) is a WUBI install, goog that 'ubuntu wubi install'01:51
pitlimitwhy is it safest, greezmunkey ?01:51

tom1i have windows 7 (with system reserve), ubuntu 10.10 with swap partition01:52
tom1so i can't create the data partition (can't have more than 4 primary partitions)01:52
Blue1greezmunkey: I always live in fear that windows will overwrite the partition.01:52
greezmunkeypitlimit: safe because you install within win7. If you decide it works with your hardware, etc. you can dig in deeped, and repartition.01:52
Blue1tom1: nuke the ubuntu partition, and make that an extended partition01:53
pitlimitgreezmunkey: you mean for the sharing of the partitions, right?01:53
blackshirtBlue1: i think..we are on the same situation01:53
pitlimitor for ALL ubuntu dual-boots with windows?01:53

shcherbaktom1: / - primary, swap, /data /var /home - logical01:53
tom1shcherbak...sorry, translation please?01:54
greezmunkeypitlimit: kind of. you would create a partition for win7, and some seperate ones for ubuntu. Then there is the whole partition resizing thing...01:54
pitlimitgreezmunkey: i read that it will do it for me?01:54
pitlimitthe install disk?01:54

tjackGNUpitlimit, why wubi? you do not have free space to create more partitions?01:59
greezmunkeypitlimit: ok, then all you need to read up on is what partition requirements ubuntu requires (so much for the homework), next, and before you do any of it, back up your win7 partition. That's it!01:59

=== AndrewMC is now known as SpockVulcan
greezmunkeypitlimit: the cool thing about a wubi install is that you can get things set up on ubuntu without the pain of partitioning up front. Then back up your config files for use once you decide to partition and reinstall. That, and it lets you jump right in without the potential of destroying your win7 setup.02:04

meerkatmansionSo uh.... no one finds Ubuntu default fonts ugly eh02:06
pitlimitthere ya go.. thus my question02:06
tom1Blue1: what did you mean by nuke ubuntu and put it on an extended partition?02:06
pitlimitmy question had nothing to do about linux directly02:07
tjackGNUpitlimit, you cannot share space between Windows 7 (NTFS) and Linux (ext*)... It's just impossible.02:07
blackshirthxcjonnysniper: i don't have experience with direct x on linux..02:07
pitlimitgot it - I don't use windows that much, tjackGNU , so I'll probably just abandon the idea02:07
Agent001I got a problem with Empathy on ubuntu when I type "favorite" it hilight as incorrecct.02:08
tjackGNUblackshirt, that's because GNU/Linux doesn't have DirectX or whatsoever.02:08
Slix`Agent001: I think it's set to British English :P02:08
greezmunkeyAgent001: maybe your language/location settings??02:08
greezmunkeySlix`: ;)02:08
gg22Due to the length and complexity of my situation I have posted my entire problem in a pastebin file> http://pastebin.com/CBA8p17k If anyone can help me in repairing my ubuntu OS it would be greatly appreciated.02:08
blackshirtpitlimit: linux, can acces windows parition directly, with vfat/ntfs-3g module.. windows can access ext2/ext linux partition but with adding third party software02:09
tjackGNUpitlimit, you can do this: make Ubuntu use ALL your hard drive for installation. And welcome to the free world! ;-)02:09
Agent001Oh wow.. it's fixed. Thanks guys02:09
pitlimitI'll keep Windows just in case an emergency situation comes up =p02:09
tjackGNUpitlimit, Windows *is* an emergency itself....02:09
blackshirttjackGNU: hxcjonnysniper ask about direct x error..maybe sound strange for me..i think he was using wine02:09
greezmunkeyno kidding...02:09
pitlimitwell, mostly in case I have to run something for class on Windows... :)02:10
tjackGNUpitlimit, try install Ubuntu and make the partitioning, but DO NOT GO FURTHER (then no changes will be saved).  If you think that is the way, just go, man!  Try it.02:11
tjackGNUblackshirt, so ask him to go to Wine's channel...02:12
tom1shcherbak: can i just install ubuntu as logical off the live cd?02:12
DuckMaestrowill the iso work on a dvd-r, or does it have to be cd-r?02:13
blackshirttjackGNU: thank's bro..02:13
tjackGNUtom1, the only partition that need to be primary is '/' or '/boot'...02:13
andrewpendingDuckMaestro: I installed from DVD-r so it should be fine.02:13
tjackGNUblackshirt, you are welcome.02:13
StevenZhangboth dvd and cd will be ok02:13
tom1tjackGNU: does swap count as primary?02:14
wegueI think  the virtualbox would be helpful02:14
hjgmay be!02:14
blackshirttom1: i don't think so02:14
shcherbaktom1: main partition should be phisical (it do contains bootloader)02:14
tjackGNUtom1, no... And if you have more than 2GB of RAM, do not create more than 1.0GB~1.5GB for /swap02:14
weguewhen I first time try ubuntu I run it in virtualbox02:15
tom1i have 1) ntsf system reserve 2) windows 7 3) / ext4 4)extended (with linux-swap)02:15
=== Phoebus is now known as |9nertia|
tom1is this 4 primaries (gparted says so)02:15
tom1i have 4 GB of ram02:15
tjackGNUtom1, just do this: '/' as primary, '/swap' and '/home' as logical. It's done.02:15
commodoreWegue: Good for you.02:15
=== |9nertia| is now known as Apollonian
shcherbaktom1: which are primaries? win7 and?02:16
commodoreTom1: RAM does not matter.02:16
tom1i think the 100 MB system reserve that windows installs02:16
tjackGNUtom1, then '/swap' is just going to make ou waste space... Create a /swap of about 1.0GB at MAX....02:16
=== Apollonian is now known as p00pm0b|l
greezmunkeySwap can be on an extended partition, if you install from the cd and tell it to use "entire disk" it will place swap on an extended partition by default.02:16
tjackGNUcommodore, explain yourself.02:16
=== willie_ is now known as h34rts

tom11) system reserved, 2) windows 7, 3) ubuntu, 4) "exended" with linux-swap under it02:17
poutineI have a 1.66ghz system, why does xboard start so large?02:18
tom1and i just want to make ntfs with my unallocated space i have left but have no partitions left02:18
gg22pastebin file> http://pastebin.com/CBA8p17k here is my problem in a pastebin thanks to anyone that can help.02:18
tjackGNUcommodore, of course... With 4GB of RAM you will never use more than 1 GB of RAM... Just if you're using doing big workloads, like database and etc....02:18
commodoreOnly 4 primRy partitions allowed, tom1.02:18
tom1right, is swap primary?02:19
commodoreIt should be logical.02:19
tom1i want 1) windows reserve 2) windows 3) ubuntu 4) ntfs data partition02:19
shcherbaktom1: swapoff and well02:19
commodoreI suggest deleting System Reserved02:19
tom1so did i just mess up the swap partition when i installed?02:19
hblounthi. anyone know if i can get updates for battle net (starcraft) within the game, or do i need to do something manually with wine?02:19
commodoreWindows doesn't really need it.02:19
tjackGNUtom1, [1] S.R. [2] Win7, [3] /boot (ext3), [5] / (ext4) [6] /swap02:20
tjackGNUtom1, that's it.02:20
Agent001I dont think ubuntu supports starcraft 1 anymore, only starcraft 2.02:20

blackshirtgg22: are you set quota ??02:21
tjackGNUtom1, what do you mean by 'data partition'?02:21
gg22gg22: set quota ?? what do you mean?02:22
shcherbaktjackGNU: common for win and linux, ntfs02:22
tom1just a big ntfs partition that i'll keep all my files on so windows and ubuntu can both see it02:22
blackshirtgg22: your home on separate partition ??02:22
tjackGNUshcherbak, it's better create a FAT32 filesystem for this purpose.02:23
commodorehblount: refer to Wine's irc.02:23
shcherbaktjackGNU: I know, he does not02:23
tjackGNUtom1, create a FAT32 partition.02:23
gg22blackshirt: no My os is on my laptop harddrive but when I did that photo rec on my external drive last night i think it did something to screw up my partitions but I'm not 100% sure how or what exactly the problem is.02:23
tom1i need files larger than 4GB though02:23
tjackGNUshcherbak, so why do you does not answered him? o.O02:23
shcherbaktjackGNU: I told him 15 minutes ago to make fat for both.02:24
gg22blackshirt: I do have dual boot also and i can safely say my windows is working fine despite my ubuntu's problem right now.02:24
commodoreWho codes Python? lol. Anyone for 3.0?02:24
tjackGNUtom1, what about an ext2 partition? But in Windows you have to use ext2explorer (it's a tiny program....)02:24
commodoreHow about ditching Windows altogether. You know you want to.02:25
andrewpendingcommodore: Haha!02:25
tom1tjackGNU: I'm sorry this has gotten complicated02:26
tjackGNUshcherbak, ok, sorry. I'm lost about all this questions about partitioning a hard drive... Seems like hey never used "format.exe" in their lifes.02:26
blackshirtgg22: your picture  showed a lot of free space.. is it right ??02:26
tjackGNUtom1, it's complicated 'cause you don't make any effort to explain with more details your problem...02:26
=== BrownR_ is now known as BrownR
tom1tjackGNU: i've explained several times02:27
tom1tjackGNU: all i want is a big shared ntfs partition02:27
tom1tjackGNU: not ext2 or fat3202:27
tjackGNUtom1, you just asked, and asked, and asked... We need details.02:27
tom1tjackGNU: do you need more details?02:27
tjackGNUtom1, no.02:27
gg22gg22: I would say it is true since I can check my actual user account and it shows nowhere near the maximum amount of filling that partition up. I set aside like 285 Gb for linux then like 150 for windows.02:27
tom1tjackGNU: i don't understand why it says i have 4 primary partitions if swap is not primary02:28

blackshirttjackGNU: i think tom1 want to use ntfs partition shared between windows and ubuntu ...02:28
tjackGNUtom1, you can create a HUGE ntfs partition. Both Windows and Linux gonna see it. No problem at all. So WHAT IS YOUR REALLY PROBLEM?02:28
tom1tjackGNU: i can't create the partition because it says i already have 4 primary partitions02:28
tjackGNUtom1, and don't you have them?02:29
xTheGoat121xEvening everyone, I tried installing the PPA for Compiz 0.9, and CCSM crashes when trying to activate plugins02:29
tom1tjackGNU: people here are saying swap doesn't count as primary...so i count 302:29
tjackGNUtom1, OOPS! If you created /swap as a primary one, it does count like a primary partition, yes.02:30
tjackGNUtom1, can ou tell me your partition scheme?02:30
tom1tjackGNU: sure, what's the fdisk option? (if that's what i'm supposed to be using)02:31
blackshirtgg22: you say have other pastebin for error, can you show it ??02:31
tjackGNUtom1, why you're using fdisk?02:31
tjackGNUtjackGNU, but the command is "fdisk -l"....02:31

greezmunkeytom1: Please understand that this is not a formal technical support organization, people here are volunteers. There is the expectation that a few words will point someone like yourself in the right direction, and then that person would quitely work towards a solution, chiming in now and then for additional guidance only after reading up on their problem on their own.03:13
edbiantom1, You can only have 4 primary partitions on a hdd.  You need to create an "extended" or "logical" partition.  Inside the extension you can put logical partitions that don't count as one of your 4 primary.03:13
tjackGNUtom1, go here <http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download> scroll down until number 4 and click on "Show me how". That's it.03:13

tom1edbian: okay, how do i set swap so it's not a primary?03:14
echo310infantryjake ur not gonna like my answer but it sounds like it overwrote part of the encryption freezing the disk... u cant partition after you encrypt without doing through the probram or un encrypting the drive03:14
edbiantom1, delete it, create a new partition inside an extended partition, make that new partition swap03:15
tjackGNUtom1, delete it.03:15
JakeCulpinecho31, I decrypted the disk already.03:15
JakeCulpinI can access my files using liveCD03:15
echo310infantrybut u did it after the partition correct03:15
JakeCulpinI just want to be able to boot back into my OS.03:15
JakeCulpinI did it when I couldn't logon.03:16
DuckMaestroanyone know a guide for installing ubuntu on latest gen mac-mini? im running into an issue.03:16
JakeCulpinI just want to get rid of this annoying truecrypt pre-boot auth crap and boot.03:16
edbianDuckMaestro, What's the issue?  It should just install.03:16
JakeCulpinI used the recovery disk with win7 to try and repair the MBR, no help.03:16
hxcjonnysniperi need help configuring direct x with wine.03:16
DuckMaestroedbian, i see the low-res pair of icons, then hear cd spinning for a few minutes, then just black screen03:17
echo310infantryi realize what your saying and i think your screwed 99% sure03:17
edbianDuckMaestro, Oh it won't boot at all?  Check the CD.  Do you get any errors at all?03:17
JakeCulpinSo I'll have to backup all my shit onto a drive + reinstall Windblows?03:17
h00kubottu: language | JakeCulpin03:17
ubottuJakeCulpin: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family friendly.03:17
edbianhxcjonnysniper, direct x is the API for windows not linux03:17
izinucshxcjonnysniper: ain't gonna happen..03:18
echo310infantrycorrect.. if u can even get a backup off the hdd03:18
DuckMaestrono errors, but i verified my burn after it finished. though that's not to say the disc didnt lose integrity between then and beginning the install03:18
JakeCulpinYeah, As I said, I'm able to edit/check files on my hdds using ubuntu03:18
tjackGNUJakeCulpin, you'll have to do this on Windows: [1] /fixboot [2] /fixmbr, [3] bootsect /nt60 ALL /force /mbr. This you will make after you boot with the CD, and you gonna click on "Repair my computer", and then select the Command prompt....03:18
hxcjonnysniperedbian: so there is no way i can play cod on linux? i have seen videos on youtube and stuff.03:18
edbianDuckMaestro, If it won't boot with 0 errors you either have a bad cd or bad hardware.  Sometimes though it's just that Ubuntu doesn't like the hardware (usually that doesn't happen with a mac since they're so cookie-cutter and common)03:19
edbianhxcjonnysniper, You have to use wine03:19
echo310infantrytjack dont forget its encrypted03:19
JakeCulpintjackGNU, I'm assuming you want me to do this at the recovery menu command prompt?03:19
JakeCulpinecho31, the drive itself has been decrypted.03:19
edbianhxcjonnysniper, I have no experience setting it up, I do not know how well it works.03:19
JakeCulpintook me 48 hours, decrypted the WHOLE drive03:19
DuckMaestroedbian:  in my case neither display port (whether apple mini port or hdmi) seems to be outputting a signal. tried two diff monitors separately.03:19
ShayGuyOkay, back. Wicd still isn't working.03:19
izinucshxcjonnysniper: unless cod has a switch for opengl probably not03:20
Exploiteranyone notices there is something wrong with man page of netstat.....03:20
tjackGNUecho310infantry, they just want they Windows back... That's what these commands will do.03:20
echo310infantrythen just run reco disk03:20
Exploiterwondering if its only me... or there is something wrong03:20
edbianDuckMaestro, mmm, you didn't even get the boot menu on the CD?03:20
JakeCulpinI've ran it.. like 40 times.03:20
DuckMaestroedbian: no. just the pair of icons at the bottom, then spinning, then no signal03:20
JakeCulpinand yet, the truecrypt **** still comes up ._.03:20
tom1can i just delete the swap partition and add a swap file in / ?03:20
echo310infantryi have a gtx470 and a gtx260, when enabling my tv via seprate x screen it says cannot apply... any ideas?03:20
hxcjonnysniperedbian: i am using wine. but when i go to start it i get "DirectX has encountered an unrecoverable error"03:21
edbianDuckMaestro, sounds like the disc is scratched03:21
rwwExploiter: it looks fine to me03:21
echo310infantryas i said before i think ur screwed03:21
tjackGNUJakeCulpin, nope. Boot with the Windows DVD, then "Install", and then "Repair my computer", there will be some more options and you'll choose a command prompt and you'll excte those commands.03:21
echo310infantrytry what gnu said though03:21
DuckMaestroedbian: ok ill try a new burn...03:21
JakeCulpintjackGNU, Yeah i did that before, apart from one of those, so I shall try.03:21
edbianhxcjonnysniper, yeah, what you're trying to do is complicated.  You probably need specific knowledge about this version of COD in wine.  Have you googled it?03:21
Exploiterrww: my man page is not showing argument options, like -an etc03:21
edbianhxcjonnysniper, I'm sure others have tried03:21
JakeCulpinIt did say " the volume does not contain a recognized file system"03:21
edbianDuckMaestro, worth a shot.  Sometimes you get strange problems like this. (also you might wanna try other distros)03:21
tjackGNUJakeCulpin, then you'll have your Windows again.03:22
gogetatjackGNU: noo windows03:22
tjackGNUJakeCulpin, the MBR have a filesystem?03:22
rwwExploiter: mine shows both -a and -n :\03:22
hxcjonnysniperedbian: yeah its a common error though. windows or not. i have been looking ALL day on how to fix it. i just really hope i didnt waste 50 dollars.03:22
tom1tjackGNU: thank you for your help and patience, i apologize for frustrating you03:22
gogetahxcjonnysniper: 50$03:23
Exploiterrww: nevermind, will reinstall it, thx anyways..03:23

lonewlf2001woniu: .cue files tell .bin files where to write on a cd...03:35

tjackGNUwoniu, with Brasero or k3b...03:36
gogetahxcjonnysniper: http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks03:36
edbianDuckMaestro, When you put in the CD and boot it?  There should never be more than 1 minutes of blank screen ness (that's generous).  Depending on the speed the boot time from computer off to live CD running is 10 or 15 minutes03:36
gogetahxcjonnysniper: winetricks can dl and install said things its a script03:36
MaahesI'm having an issue that's a pain: My trackpad won't come back online after suspend. I've tried loading and unloading psmouse, I've tried using tpconfig -x, tpconfig sees it as there, but no it's not listed in /proc/bus/input/devices. I do not have a physical switch to turn my trackpad on and off. Is there a program that can turn my touchpad back on?03:37
Dwade09hxcjonnysniper,  then try using a gaming os like windows or try playonlinux or cedega03:37
gogetaDwade09: lol03:38
tjackGNUMaahes, sudo rmmod synaptics, then sudo insmod synaptics?03:38
Some_PersonI'm having trouble connecting to one Windows 7 machine's SMB shares. For some reason, ubuntu seems to think this machine is on a domain (instead of a workgroup) and prompts for a user/password/domain. Accessing other computers' shares works fine on my network (including another Windows 7 machine), and other machines can access this machine's shares no problem (but no other machines are Linux). What the hell is going on and03:38
Some_Personwhat should I do?03:38
hxcjonnysnipergogeta: i was trying playonlinux but i couldn't figure it out honestly.03:39

JackyChaoanybody knows03:40
gogetahxcjonnysniper: the game will work but lack sound03:40
edbianSome_Person, Read all about samba.  I guarantee it works, you just have to configure it: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/ubuntu/install-samba-server-on-ubuntu/03:40
gogetahxcjonnysniper: as the wiki says sudo sh winetrcks d3dx903:41
edbianSome_Person, https://help.ubuntu.com/6.06/ubuntu/serverguide/C/configuring-samba.html03:41
Dwade09hxcjonnysniper,  if there is no sound install the sound drivers03:41

Some_Personedbian: I don't want to set up a server on ubuntu. I'm trying to access a server on a Windows 7 machine03:41
gogetaDwade09: its a wine issue with that game03:41
edbianSome_Person, oh sorry.  Misread that.  What is the issue?03:41
Dwade09gogeta,  iw as being sarcastic03:41
edbianSome_Person, (I've never done it this way before)03:41
Some_Personedbian: It prompts for a user/password/domain despite the machine not being on a domain. I can't log in to it. Strangely, other machines (including one Windows 7) can be accessed fine03:42
hxcjonnysnipergogeta:You (root) don't own /home/hxcjonnysniper/.wine. Don't run winetricks as another user!03:42
gogetahxcjonnysniper: sorry no sudo03:42
hxcjonnysnipergogeta:it says i do not own it.03:42
edbianSome_Person, Perhaps you can set the share to not require those things?03:43
gogetahxcjonnysniper: just sh winetricks d3dx903:43
Some_Personedbian: It isn't supposed to require a damn domain03:43
hxcjonnysniperokay i did that.03:43
gogetahxcjonnysniper: and the vc file you nedded03:43
gogetahxcjonnysniper: as long as you installed cabextract it should install everything03:44
edbianSome_Person, Yeah I know.03:44
edbianSome_Person, Sorry I'm not sure.  Make a forum post.03:44
hxcjonnysnipergogeta: i didnt do that i dont think O.o03:44
gogetahxcjonnysniper: sudo apt-get install cabextract03:44
greezmunkeySome_Person: Have you tried "WindowsMachineName.local" as the domain? (substitute the windows name)03:45
Some_Personedbian: I can mount it manually with 'smbmount', just not in nautilus03:45
tjackGNUSome_Person, have you tried to login with the domain being the workgroups? Like: in a Win7 the workgroup name is HELL, and you log in, put your user, pass, and domain = HELL... Try it already?03:45
gogetahxcjonnysniper: probly miselld that03:45
Some_PersontjackGNU: Tried already, fail03:45
gogetanope didnt03:45
tjackGNUSome_Person, and you have a account on the Windows machines?03:45
edbianSome_Person, Really.  Then just don't use nautilus!  ha aha03:46
Some_PersontjackGNU: Duh. It's my laptop03:46
Some_Persongreezmunkey: didn't work03:46
hxcjonnysnipergogeta:it says it is already the newest version03:46
gogetahxcjonnysniper: k then just do sh winetrcks vcrun200503:46
tjackGNUSome_Person, and you log with your user and password and workgroup and nothing?03:46
gogetahxcjonnysniper: if you are finished with the d3dx903:47
hxcjonnysnipergogeta:already did that too.03:47
Some_PersontjackGNU: In nautilus, it just prompts for it again. Like I said, I can mount it manually with smbmount without problems (smbmount //server/share /path/to/mountpoint -o user=username pass=password)03:47
gogetahxcjonnysniper: well see if said game runs03:47

ubottuAR_: WINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu03:52
AbhiJitAR_, you cant run .exe file directly. you need wine for that03:52
gogetahxcjonnysniper: just do apt-get update03:52
gogetahxcjonnysniper: then apt-get upgrade03:52
Some_Persongreezmunkey: Not sure how that would help. SMB is working; nautilus just thinks the machine is on a domain instead of a workgroup. But I'll try it03:52

hxcjonnysnipergogeta:this is ridiculous.03:55
gogetahxcjonnysniper: should like you didnt add the wine repo03:55
Some_Persongreezmunkey: This may have started when I tried to access some SMB shares at school (where domains are used). I haven't accessed my laptop before, and perhaps nautilus is now assuming all machines are on domains03:55
Hakume1Anyone know what to do?03:55

It asks for a domain, I typed in my work nework name (on the win7 box), password, and checked the box to remember the pword until I log out. Works... Check your win7 machine, advanced sharing settings, make sure that discovery, sharing, access for anyone - are all on.04:00

uLinuxWhen I add a PPA 'Software Sources' adds 2 lines: Main and Main (Source Code). Do I need source code thing?04:08
uLinuxin Lucid was different. why?04:08
leprechauuLinux, totally up to you04:09
leprechauif you ever want to build pacakges from src ... you need the deb-src line to fetch package sources04:09
leprechauecho310infantry, of course you can04:09
uLinuxleprechau: hm ok i dont to that04:10
echo310infantryit just rotates the cube04:10
uLinuxleprechau: so I unmark Source code in Ubuntu software04:10
leprechauecho310infantry, only if you are holding ctrl+alt when you click an drag04:10
echo310infantrythats incorrect04:11
gogetauLinux: if you whant but it only grabs them if you tell it04:11
leprechauecho310infantry, then you have changed your hotkey settings for cube rotate04:11
Alvaro-hi all :D04:11
echo310infantryno i havent04:11
leprechaudude...yes you have04:11
uLinuxgogeta: i disabled it now i need to delete every source code entry04:12

ultronhi .... my eeepc gets more hot with linux or maybe just with ubuntu than usual... i've been trying to find some solution can you guys have any suggestions?04:12

gogetauLinux: then your fine04:13
robsc_anyone here used gcalcli for google calendar?04:13
leprechauecho310infantry, and does it just rotate the cube when you come to the edge ... or always?04:14
gogetauLinux: you should be able to clean up just by unistalling said source deb04:14
echo310infantryonly when dragging a program04:14
MaahesI'm having an issue that's a pain: My touchpad won't come back online after suspend. I've tried loading and unloading psmouse, I've tried using tpconfig -x, tpconfig sees it as there, but no it's not listed in /proc/bus/input/devices. I do not have a physical switch to turn my touchpad on and off. Is there a program that can turn my touchpad back on? Also: trying insmod synaptics or synaptics_i2c says04:14
Maahesthere is no module, but zsh autocomplete is giving me synaptics(_i2c) as options.04:14
gogetauLinux: but if you never installed any then you have none04:14
echo310infantryand two seperate desktops04:14
leprechauecho310infantry, that's not what I asked .... when you drag the window does the cube start rotating right away or only when your pointer gets to the edge of the screen?04:15
uLinuxgogeta: source deb?04:15
gogetauLinux: then ill assume you have none04:15
leprechauecho310infantry, you don't have your screens setup right .... what gfx card do you have?04:16
gogetauLinux: ubuntu instal installs source if it has to do it for a task like a deb that compiles04:16

personyes babe, if u say so04:35
gogetaVinceN: not forggeting ubuntu and xp both have firewalls heh04:35
VinceNgogeta: No idea what ufw is so.............. No LOL04:35
ubottuUbuntu, 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.04:35

ggg22just for clarification my problem is pretty complicated so pm windows are going to have to be a possibility unless everyone in here doesn't care to have paragraphs of text and pasties being broadcasted all over the main page. It is out of respect to the other people with problems.04:37
S0LIDUSVinceN, I would give OpenVPN a bash, it works very well on Ubuntu and has lots of info and support.04:37
gogetaVinceN: both xp and ubuntu will need the firewalls open enough for vpn04:37
gogetaVinceN: or disabled04:38
Blue1ggg22: no one is going to paw through that much data, esp. if you can't identify the file structure04:38
gogetaVinceN: disable is a bad idea thow04:38
VinceNgogeta: well like I said i'm not having issues with the XP server04:38
charley__can someone help me with this grub problem?04:38
VinceNBut then the wizard may have set it up automatically04:38
ggg22Blue1: its called read the pastie it is only six lines long and shows my whole partition table list.04:38
gogetaVinceN: then ubuntu ufw probly just needs the vppm port opened but disable will be a quick check04:38
VinceNgogeta: I know disabling is a bad idea but i'm behind a hardware wall.  If it works with the firewall off then I know for sure thats what it is, I can turn it back on and tweak it04:39
Evil_Ericis there a chan where one can get help with reminal commands04:39

gogetaVinceN: humm04:52
gogetaVinceN: at least we knoe its at least sending something04:52
gogetaVinceN: so a client or server rejcting04:52
tecnicohashashin: the network service must be up by the time the mount happens... that could be the problem you are having.. just a guess.  But with autofs, the NFS or whatever other resource would automatically be mounted when you try to access it. And what's even better, it'd unmount if it is not being used and that'd prevent your system from hanging if you have some network hicup locking the mount04:53

VinceNgogeta: Seems so, Doubt its the client cause it will connect when trying to connect to the XP Server04:54
IdleOnedapz: on freenode, whois only shows you channels you share with the user.04:54
gogetaVinceN: also check your roughter both machines ip will need a rought to the vpn04:55
dapzWell I'm looking for any similar channels i guess, namely technical channels for programming/developers04:55
Hobbseeggg22: in that picture, is that /home that has the 200gb free space, or /?  I'm wondering if /home is on a separate partition to /, and only /home is full04:55
dapzdo you know of any IdleOne ?04:55
hashashintecnico, thanks I'll look at autofs04:55
gogetaVinceN: assuming you did this fr cp aruldy04:55
Hobbseeggg22: (and weird!)04:55
greezmunkeyggg22: have you tried booting into a live cd to investigate your drives further?04:56
AbhiJitdapz, ##programming04:56
ggg22Hobbsee: yeah i know this is bad because i don't even know how to start in fixing thsi problem.04:56
IdleOnedapz: #programming, ##c++ and so on, basically pick a language and try joining the channel.04:56
gogetaVinceN: most uppnp rughters do this for you but who knoes04:56
VinceNGogeta: already covered that base, both OS's are set to obtain the same IP when booted.04:56
VinceNand the router is forwarding the traffic to the static IP as assigned to the machine04:56
gogetaVinceN: umm i dont think they will new mac = new ip04:57
VinceNgogeta: Except i'm not using DHCP04:57
gogetaVinceN: you can check with ifconfig however04:57
VinceNBoth IS's are static assigned04:57
gogetaVinceN: ah04:57
VinceNOS's even04:57
Hobbseeggg22: yeah, i'm trying to figure that out.  answer my question?  :)04:57
gogetaVinceN: so not a roughting issue04:57
ggg22Hobbsee: blackshirt the previous guy suggested i tried making a new user account and logging into it using alt+ fn but i get lots of weird messages. he had to go so can i just give you what i am getting when i try to bring up log in windows? yeah did gparted already and it didn't fidn anything.04:58
gogetaVinceN: so we are down to client being incomptable somehow04:58
VinceNgogeta : Doubt it, I really think this is a config issue with the pptpd on Ubuntu but I have no way of finding out what it is with this no specific error code04:58
gogetaVinceN: yea seems to have coverd the rest04:58
Hobbseeggg22: if you could run df -h -T and pastebin it from the bad machine, that'd be great.  also, a pastebin of those errors would be great if you can (or roughly what they say)04:59
greezmunkeyVinceN: what are you vpn'ing to?04:59
gogetaVinceN: shoudk be a log file for ppptd04:59

gogetaVinceN: if your PPP setup doesn't work right away, you should look in this log file. If the log messages don't help, you can also turn on extra debugging output using the debug option. This output makes pppd log the contents of all control packets sent or received to syslog.  All messages then go to the daemon facility05:00

Novicewhenever i install ubuntu freshly,it worls fine for 2 days. After that, i get  grub problem stating that it couldn't go into the system05:11

tecnicochasejacks: type  in your terminal   " ls -al /usr/bin/ffmpeg"05:11
gogetachasejacks: well if your ripping off youtube thers a web way05:11
ggg22Hobbsee: told you it is complex problem ^_^ i went to boot linux as usual and it said somethign about sdb1 not being able ot mount so i eventually picked option m or manual modify to fix it from there i removed the restored files and then tried startx to see if it worked. It did i am in the root account for linux right now and everythign works except software center05:11

HobbseeNovice: cya05:13
tecnicohashashin: great.  And take a look at the difference between soft and hard mounts when it comes to NFS..  it makes a difference when the network connection goes down.. your process table ends up locking and you have to do lazy unmounts .. it's a nightmare05:13
gogetablakkheim: ell hes ripping youtube made it easy for him05:13
blakkheimgogeta: doesn't matter, the audio quality is still horrible05:13
tecnicochasejacks: I was trying to see the output of that command to look at the permissions of ffmpeg05:13
gogetablakkheim: well no matter if he does a web rip or dl and convert it will be the same heh05:13
ggg22Hobbsee: only this root account works somethign about useraccounts are not working though i can access all the user account files there not corrupt or anythign i just log in to user accounts on standard boot or try alt+fn of anything kind.05:13
tecnicochasejacks: you could try:  chmod o+rx /usr/bin/ffmpeg05:14
hashashintecnico, ok05:14
ggg22Hobbsee: yeah it is duo booted has windows 7 and linux ubuntu 10.0405:14
Hobbseeggg22: yeah, the problem is that the standard accounts want stuff on the disk that didn't mount properly (sdb), and so cry loudly05:14
chasejackstecnico: thanks, here it is http://pastebin.com/dHPRBvzQ05:14

ggg22Hobbsee: i tried windows and thankfully it is fine only user accounts under ubuntu have problems.05:16
tecnicochasejacks: oh.. gotta prefix that with 'sudo'  so,  sudo <cmd>05:16
Hobbseeggg22: yeah, it would be05:16
chasejackstecnico: still permission denied, im baffled05:17
Hobbseeggg22: what does sudo fdisk /dev/sdb1 output?05:17
Exploiterggg22, linux is not the problem, user is(ALWAYS)05:17
HobbseeExploiter: if only that were the truth.  linux has bugs05:17
gogetachasejacks: of course they are right no matter how you do it youtube audio sucks05:18
ExploiterHobbsee yeah?? liike there are millions of bugg which bothers you.. windows have 1000 times more bugs.. to be specific05:18
tecnicochasejacks: the output of your ls  command seems to indicate that /usr/bin/ffmpeg is a directory and not a binary file05:18
ggg22Hobbsee: I tried ti and it said ti was unable to open /dev/sdb105:18
Hobbseeggg22: rats05:18
tecnicochasejacks: type   sudo file /usr/bin/ffmpeg       . Does it say directory?05:19
gogetatecnico: only 1 way that happond and im just gonna stay quite05:19
tecnicothat bad?05:19
chasejackstecnico: good call ,yes it does...what does that mean?05:19
Hobbseeggg22: oh, plug the external drive back in, then run it05:19
gogetatecnico: means he didnt use apt-get and probly a source05:19
chasejackstecnico: does that mean it's not installed properly?  I did a recompile and followed the steps thoughorly05:20
gogetatecnico: ding ding ding05:20
greezmunkeyGive that man a het!05:20
chasejacksgogeta: how do i get ffmpeg installed properly, the latest one with all the features?05:21
chasejacksgogeta:  i followed all the steps05:21
ggg22this is satin's external hardrive i pray this thing doesn't destroy want little linux os i got left T_T05:21
gogetachasejacks: well first you have to remove that botched install05:21
tecnicochasejacks: well, I'd recommend moving that away (sudo mv /usr/bin/ffmpeg /tmp/ffmpeg_screwed)  and installing ffmpeg with apt-get install ffmpeg05:21
Hobbseeggg22: it shouldn't05:21
gogetachasejacks: and for refrence later ubuntu is not ment for source compiles avoide when possable05:22
zer010hello all05:22
ggg22Hobbsee: it still says unable to open even with external attached.05:23
zer010I don't come to irc very often, but I needed some quick help05:23
chasejacksgogeta: does the apt-install have all the features?05:23
gogetachasejacks: well latest for ubuntu and any ubunu apps will use05:24
gogetachasejacks: flc support has been around for ages so05:24

gogetazer010: yum install gnome sorry05:24
ggg22Hobbsee: though i checked the computer tab and the external drive doesn't appear to be listed. Thats another thing is all things usb are not functioning in this low shell setting i guess or there are errors one?05:25
zer010I figure it's as easy as su yum install gnome205:25
Hobbseeggg22: yeah, it probably doesn't function05:25
chasejacksgogeta:  http://pastebin.com/eWu1QdAZ05:25
chasejackstecnico: http://pastebin.com/eWu1QdAZ05:25
AbhiJitzer010, yes?05:25
tecnicochasejacks: Apt-get installed packages are your safe bet since. With more experience and time  you could install ffpeg from source if you want.  Basically you untarred the ffmpeg source directory directly in /usr/bin.  Next time untar it somewher else, like ~/source (mkdir ~/sources). Then follow the instructions.05:25
chasejacksyou guys are unbelievably helpful, thank you so much05:25
gogetachasejacks: thats fine they are not nedded anymore05:25
zer010You suggested #fedora05:26
AbhiJitzer010, yah ask in #fedora channel05:26
chasejacksbut how do i get rid of them now?05:26

DuckMaestroim reading a guide on installing ubuntu on latest mac mini. it recommends installing rEFIT before the ubuntu installation, to manage booting.     does that all sound legit/reasonable to you guys?05:31
gogetachasejacks: if you did the same misinstall to winff its also in apt-get05:31
gogetachasejacks: notee you dont need to use the console to install packages there is 2 gui sysanptic and ubuntu store05:32
tecnicoDuckMaestro: why dual boot? I'd install ubuntu on a virtual machine and have both worlds.. no need to mess up with your mac05:32
ggg22Hobbsee: okay what i did was go to the directories that i had restored from the external in case they were corrupt and did rm since rmdir wasn't working for me. after i rm all the files i nthe directory i then deleted the diretory itself and i ls it to see the directory is gone. it was in my home folder.05:33

airlynxI have no idea where to start with this, I'm using Ubuntu Studio 10.04 and whenever I use programs that require audio (except JACK) the audio will quit after about 15 minutes, e.g. in Audacious this happens if I select PulseAudio or ALSA but if I set up and use JACK it works just fine05:49
Maahestempas: its probably in the git directory. what project is it?05:49
porthose_where can I find documentation on how to customize unity?05:50

ggg22Hobbsee: it seems to have frozen and is not loading to top it off its running 100% trying to burn itself up.05:55
Hobbseeggg22: argh.  what's top showing as the culprit?05:55
tempasThe Apache license has some extra benefits over the BSD or MIT X11 license style licenses. The Apache 2.0 licenses contains a patent grant, which means that at least the authors of the code are giving you any rights that you need to any patents they might own that happen to be in the code you are using.05:56
ggg22Hobbsee: don't know can't run top from splash screen. At least i dont think you can05:56
tempasit seems that Apache license is better than MIT and BSD to use05:56
Hobbseeggg22: good point05:56

Hobbseeggg22: try unplug the external, then reboot, hit 'e' at grub and take out "quiet splash", see if that shows anything?05:57
Hobbseeggg22: bwah?  that shouldn't effect windows05:58
ggg22Hobbsee: oh well i unplugged it before loading should i try ti with the external plugged in?05:58

MACscr_lappyim getting the dreaded blinking cursor when trying to install ubuntu on my new mobo/ram. Happens before i can even enter anything. It boots the cd and even shows the first splash screen  (the simple purple one with two graphics at the bottom), but after that it goes to the eternal blinking cursor. Any ideas?06:01
ggg22Hobbsee:trying this time with external plugged in.06:01
denysoniqueMaahes, synclient TouchpadOff=006:01
denysoniqueMACscr_lappy, try the alternative install cd06:01
denysoniqueMACscr_lappy, or burn another one06:01
ggg22Hobbsee: what about recovery mode i never tried but do you think it might boot up?06:01
Hobbseeggg22: you can try06:01
MACscr_lappydenysonique: ive tried an install cd for ubuntu 10.4 that i have used before and another 10.10 one. both had the exact same results =/06:02
MACscr_lappybut i havent tried alternative06:03
ggg22Hobbsee: jeeze man when it fails boot off a recovery mode thats terrible.06:03
Hobbseeggg22: quite06:04
ggg22Hobbsee: so much for fail safe what the heck did that external hardrive do to kill my linux like some crazed penguin assassin...06:04
Hobbseeggg22: wish i knew...i haven't been able to find info about what that actually does06:05
ggg22Hobbsee: so i get the toughest fix of the month then i guess?06:05

DreamgliderUbuntu has come a long way since 8.04/1006:17
chandrageetha how frequent we have to update through update manager, since it needs more space06:17
gogetachandrageetha: shouldent use more space lol06:18
tecnicoarcher: that's just to see if it is on or enabled... it is is and you want to change it depends if it is compiled in or if it is a module. If it is a module you can just unload the module. If it is compiled, you need to recompile the kernel with that off.  And recompiling the kernel is a completely different game for a new person to linux06:18
gogetachandrageetha: not by mutch anyways06:18
ggg22Hobbsee: it made it to the splash screen O_o yet it won't load thats mean.06:18
Dreamglider i only installed 10.10 last week,  used 8.04/10 from birth till eol. so i have to take my hat of for it. 10.10 is nice.06:18
gogetachandrageetha: genrely if it leave the old kernel after a update you can remove it06:19
chandrageethadaily it says --- mb will be needed for these updates, like that06:19
archerwhat shall i do to enable vt  in my laptop? it is always unaccepted by vmware06:19
chandrageethahow to remove old kernel?06:19
gogetachandrageetha: mb to dl not to install06:19
gogetachandrageetha: once installed to cleans all that out06:19
gogetachandrageetha: well 10.10 shouldent have anynold images06:20
gogetachandrageetha: yep06:20
ggg22Hobbsee: i do recall one other thing when i tried to bypass the mnt before it displayed a message about gnome not having proper drivers installed for power management?06:20
aDik21/server irc.malaysiachat.org06:20
chandrageethathank u gogeta,06:20
gogetachandrageetha: being the last kernel update didnt leave the old one behind due to a expolite so it auto removed it06:20
tecnicoarcher: most likely CONFIG_VT is enabled already.    sudo grep VT /boot/config-`uname -r`06:21
gogetachandrageetha: normly it leave the old behind just in case you have issues06:21
chandrageethaso we need to install each and every update prompting?06:21
chandrageethai have no issues with it. but simply to know06:21
gogetachandrageetha: well you can set the check whenever you like weekly daly montly06:21
chandrageethawhat is actually meant by check feature?06:22
archertecnico,  yes it is on. the fact is i am not luck at all06:22
gogetachandrageetha: when it looks for updates06:22
gogetachandrageetha: oof course you dont have to do it right then it just tells you they are there06:22
archertecnico,  and about 3d acc, not lucky enough either06:22
chandrageethasorry, along with the update window, it shows a button named check. what does it mean06:23
gogetachandrageetha: but always a good idea to stay updated06:23
chandrageethaok. will follow you , thank you06:23
gogetachandrageetha: check is a good idea to hit before updating06:23
gogetachandrageetha: make shure everything is still where it should be06:23
gogetachandrageetha: or it might try to get something thats not there or moved06:23
gogetachandrageetha: and fail06:23
chandrageethayeah, the same i am doing, thank you gogeta very much06:24
chandrageethabye all06:24
denysoniquehmm ubuntu makes everything simple;)06:25
denysoniquebut it could be more simple imho06:25
pcmhSo could windows. Just depends on who you ask.06:26
ggg22Hobbsee: i plugged in the external and recovery mode was possible what should i do now?06:26
archerthank you all. especially to tecnico . I have to quit06:27
denysoniquebut with ubuntu there is one problem06:27
denysoniquethere is no simple way a novice user could play videos06:27
gogetadenysonique: push play?06:27
denysoniquegogeta, codecs...06:28
pcmhOpen the "Video player?"06:28
gogetadenysonique: toten will say it need to find em hit ssearch and wala06:28
denysoniquegogeta, and will install automatically?06:28
pcmhUbuntu has always said "You need these" when I tried to play ones with wierd codecs and it downloaded them for me06:28
gogetadenysonique: if there avable yes06:28
MACscr_lappylol, crap, i cant test the fglrx drivers with the live cd because it requires a reboot06:29
MACscr_lappythats retarded06:29
gogetaMACscr_lappy: you would need to make a usb cd that can save to do tht06:29
macoMACscr_lappy: can we not use "retarded" like that? thanks06:29
gogetaMACscr_lappy: a persent live cd06:29
ggg22quick question but after top how do you stop it from terminal?06:29
macoggg22: q06:30
amokpauleHello, someone here knows how to get an ati 6870 working with ubuntu?06:30
ggg22maco: thanks06:30
gogetaamokpaule: push hardware let drivers install06:30
macoMACscr_lappy: i believe a logout is sufficient, so you could "sudo service gdm restart" and let it log back in (may need user/pass ubuntu/ubuntu)06:30
gogetamaco: for fglx its kernel06:31
macogogeta: oh boo06:31
pcmhWhat about fan control on Radeon GPU's. Anyone had any luck with that?06:31
gogetamaco: he needs a prestent live cd for that06:31
MACscr_lappymaco: lol, you actually find the comment offensive?06:31
gogetaMACscr_lappy: there easy to make06:31
amokpauleI did but after a reboot my screen satys black i have to go to the recovery mode and reset my xorg config. When i try to open the ati control center it says "unsupported device"06:31
gogetaMACscr_lappy: i think even the usb maker for ubuntu has that option some windows ones to doionno abought mac06:32
MACscr_lappyim not on a mac06:32
ggg22okay I was able to get in gui for my user account woot now how can start in figuring out how to take this external drive out of the equation?06:32
MACscr_lappyand i dont like them06:32
MACscr_lappyMAC is my initials06:32
gogetaggg22: ?????06:32
ggg22What this problem is it has somethign to do with the external drive it wont even let linux bootup without it plugged in.06:33
macoMACscr_lappy: your usage of it is offensive, yes. please follow the channel guidelines including the bit about respect06:33
gogetaamokpaule: then major driver bug there06:33
gogetaamokpaule: on amd part06:33
=== dreamtraveler is now known as noobuntu
gogetaggg22: ahh you installed grub to the internel drive06:34
pcmhggg22: Did you install linux on the external?06:34
MACscr_lappymaco: i am not being offensive at all. Its just a term to describe something. Just like saying something is stupid06:34
MACscr_lappyanyway, i will drop the topic06:34
gogetaggg22: that will make grub flip out when you remove it06:34
gogetaggg22: you have to remove grub from the internel and put it on the externel06:34
amokpaulekk guess ill pack it up again and trade it for an nvidia card06:34
elkygogeta, it is quite unnecessary. Developmental delay isn't uncommon, and we really shouldn't alienate people in here who've been affected by it.06:34
gogetaggg22: make shure you restore booting on the inernel as well06:35
gogetaelky: well amd broke it cant do anything there06:35
gogetaelky: then go back to os drivers06:35
gogetaother then06:36
ggg22no I didn't install linux on external. anything this thing did to grub it did on its own accord so how do i go about removing the external making my system bootup normally?06:36
MACscr_lappyive tried a bootable usb, but my crappy mobo doesnt seem to have it show up as a boot option. Though it supports booting from usb06:36
MACscr_lappyquite odd06:36
elkygogeta, that doesn't mean you can use language that alienates people affected by developmental delays.06:36
gogetaggg22: ah remove ext drive now06:36
gogetaggg22: then just doing sudo update-grub should make a grub menu without the externel06:37
MACscr_lappyelky: the last thing we need on the internet is more hyper sensitivity06:37
gogetaggg22: you must have some sort of os on the ext being it made a entry for it06:37
ggg22gogeta: i don't think it is quite that simple this problem is very confusing. i checked the total filesystem capcity and it now reads 747.1 GB i have a 500 gb laptop hardrive and the external is 200 to 250.06:38
gogetaggg22: thats a known bug06:38
elkyMACscr_lappy, actually the internet would benefit immensely from sensitivity training. We might have more than white christian males between 12 and 35 on it if it did.06:38
pcmhggg22: is this a fresh ubuntu install?06:39
mneptokelky: there's no need to stereotype the types of people that are insensitive.06:39
ggg22gogeta: oh really okay you got my vote.06:39
gogetaggg22: did you lvm the drive?06:39
macomneptok: it was more a list of people who aren't constantly being spit upon, i think06:39
gogetaggg22: 747 seems to think the drive is part of your os06:39
ggg22gogeta: the only thign i did with this external is i scanned it using photopoc or whatever it is called then it did weird thigns after the scan06:40
mneptokmaco: i think that's more than hyperbolic.06:40
gogetaggg22: humm06:40
mneptokmaco: seeing that i am not in that demographic and i hardly feel spit upon.06:40
gogetaggg22: just thinking hear06:41
pcmhggg22: Anything on the external? If not format it with Gparted maybe?06:41
gogetaggg22: well if its ext or any other linuxx fsa it would read it as total space i assume06:41
macomneptok: you're in 2 or3 of the 4...06:41
lyraeDoes alt+prtscrn not work for anyone else?06:41
ggg22gogeta: thhen it said something about running out of space which is impossible the fiel was only 25 mb and it asked to store the file on a location for my laptop i selected in my home folder and thats where it stuck the recovered fiels. after that its acted plain weird.06:41
gogetaggg22: yea you hit that fs bug06:42
gogetaggg22: some see there drives as 147tb lol06:42
ggg22gogeta: yeah thats me it started showing random totals like tb 1.3 and 1.2 XD06:42
gogetaggg22: seems to only effect 64bit06:42
gogetaggg22: well now we knoe its wreaking more havic then bad space readings06:43
realeyesYou don't have the right permissions to extract archives in the folder "file:///usr/local"06:43
gogetaggg22: well with no os on the drive updating grub with the hdd removed should give you a correct meenu06:43
ggg22gogeta: i'm just glad we know what it is do i still need to unplug it then just do install grub?06:43
realeyeshow to unzip to a destination as root?06:43
gogetaggg22: well it should scan for drives with no ext it should make a entery06:44
realeyeshow to unzip to a destination as root?06:44
gogetaggg22: then plugged in or not shouldent have a effect06:44
ggg22gogeta: okay this is badit doesn't seem to know the external is connected so i cant access the file structure?06:45
gogetaggg22: we whant it disconnected for now06:46
gogetaggg22: you saying its not working at all now?06:46
ggg22gogeta: okay it is disconnected. trying stuff out06:46
realeyeshow do I Unzip to /usr/local (you will need to be sudo / root). ?06:47
gogetaggg22: when the install make the first grub install it looks for any os on any drives then makes the enterys06:47
gogetaggg22: in the case of a ext drive disconnecting it = grub crash06:47
vdubhackdoes anyone know an easy way to make an installable ISO of how I exactly have my system setup?06:47
pcmhanyone know how to control the GPU fan speed of a radeon card?06:48
ggg22gogeta: okay so just reinstall grub then?06:48
stubuntu@realeyes yes, root is the only way06:48
realeyeshow do i do that?06:48
gogetaggg22: you can genrly still boot it via the grub command line06:48
gogetaggg22: fine find stage 106:48
gogetalike find06:49
ggg22gogeta: stage 1 ?06:49
gogetaggg22: tells it to look for the boot device06:49
taranI am unable to upodat from Ubuntu 10.10.Im behind a firewall of the office but have configured proxies properly.Any HELP?06:49
gogetaggg22: but we are gonna fix it looking for the ext at all06:49
DiverdudeIs there anywhere i can read about what the mot common root folders are used for. I mean forexample the difference between /lib and /usr/lib. Where to put executables so that i can execute them from anywhere. What is /proc  and /var etc.06:49
realeyesstubuntu: how do i do that?06:50
vdubhackDiverdude: to make a program run from anywhere put it in your path06:50
vdubhackDIverdude: Read about compiling programs its really not that hard make sure to pay attention to setting up paths06:50
gogetaggg22: you should also be able to go into d.40 and rmeove the other drives entry and just update-grub06:51
taranHow to update Ubuntu 10.10 when you are  behind a firewall?06:51
Diverdudevdubhack, yes i know...that was just an example...it was more what different standard folders are used for06:51
stubunturealeyes: are you using the command line to copy  files?06:51
Diverdudevdubhack, like a folder overview06:51
ggg22gogeta: "find stage 1" output no such file or directory06:52
gogetaggg22: well wasent the excat command and you do at the grub screen06:53
vdubhackdiverdude: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LinuxFilesystemsExplained06:53
gogetaggg22: but its better to remove the exra drive entry so it doesent crash at all06:53
ggg22gogeta: no wait i am in the gui still just cvan't access the external drive06:53
ggg22gogeta: not in grub right now so go install grub then go from there correct?06:53
gogetaggg22: yea if thats the same script the live cd uses06:54
vdubhackdiverdude: if thats not enough google ubuntu folders explained06:54
ggg22gogeta: oh okay. alrighjt i gotcha i'll reboot with or without the external plugged in when i edit grub?06:54
gogetaggg22: well live = no ext defently will rmeake grub without the ext on it06:55
gogetalive plus06:55
freezwayis there a way to tell my gpu usage. I have an nvidia card06:55
ggg22goeta: okay when you say live what do oyu mean i don't mess with grub very much because of reasons like these it is very sensitive.06:56

vdubhackMACscr_lappy: it really depends in my opinion mostly on how many diff types of file systems your making an image of and things like that.. What is you end goal your trying to accomplish? Are you trying to make an image of your current install for an easy reinstall or?07:09
MACscr_lappybasically that, though to be honest, i really jsut need an image of it because im going to do a fresh install of ubuntu and want to rsync a lot of stuff back07:11
MACscr_lappymessing around with differen driver options have just fubared my system07:11
vdubhackMACscr_lappy: I would suggest a different route then to save you hassles in the future, I would do a standard backup of your info and setup your distro differently such as putting /home on its own partition and things like that07:12

MACscr_lappyanyone use a linux torrent client that allows you to specify what happens to the torrent after its done downloading? aka, maybe you want it uncompress to a specific folder after its done. I hate doing that stuff manually afterwords. i know some let you uncompress, but they all go to the same folder07:54
teamcoltraMACscr_lappy, Deluge has that07:54
teamcoltra(its a plugin, but easy to install, if I remember correctly its part of the default pack)07:55
MACscr_lappyim using deluge and it seems to only allow you to do it all to the same folder07:55

teamcoltraMACscr_lappy, are you using the deluge thats in the Ubuntu repo, or the latest version from Deluge?07:55
unyucan , we share the same /home folder with 2 or   more different linux07:57
MACscr_lappyteamcoltra: im pretty sure its the latest from deluge, but to be honest, i havent upgraded in a couple months07:57
unyui mean, use the same /home dir with 2 linux os07:57
[thor]unyu: yes, as long as they share the same file system type ( ext3, ext4, .. .. )07:57
teamcoltraUnyu yes if they shere the same fs type07:57
jribunyu: sure.  The only issue that may crop up is if some of your programs have a different version on the different distros and they change the syntax of a config file07:57

unyui see, but does it has any effect to my application, such crash or else ???07:58
jribunyu: huh?07:58
[thor]no, as far as the distro is concerned, the /home/ folder is business as usual.07:59
teamcoltrayou might run into an issue if one distro is using a different windows manager, but uses the same filename and location for settings... but I don't know of any two that do08:00

teamcoltraGorroth, but you should be able to get an answer to a question when you ask, and not have jump through the third degree on why you shouldn't do something, you should be told the risks once, and then given an answer ;) -- I don't think much of that is nessesary.

aaaoooaaahi guys im not sure if this is the place to ask about database stuff so if it isnt would you mind pointing me in the right direction? My question : I have a CSV file that I need to edit and cannot edit it via openofficeCalc/msexcel because it changes the structure of the file. The only way I can think of doing it is to create an ODBC connection to the csv file and then hopefully edit it via open office Base. Is this the fastest way to get it done? If so08:46

petancrashanddie_: sure08:50
Dwade09jrib, i added text and then rebooted after i updated grub and it still booted into the x session.08:50

jribaaaoooaaa: I don't know, there are certainly libraries to edit csv files that you could try.  But then you have to hope they won't add commas too.  What commas is open office adding?08:52
rinku_kokirican any one help me fix my boot issue on a clean install of ubuntu?08:52

Dwade09jrib http://pastebin.com/WZZMgjnT and http://pastebin.com/bL8tUjdb08:55
jribrinku_kokiri: follow the !grub2 wiki page.  And tell us exactly what step fails and how.08:55
crashanddie_TorrBY, what shell interpreters are installed on the target systems?08:55
rinku_kokirijrib> i did08:55
rinku_kokiri After selecting "OK" the next option allows the user to test GRUB 2 by adding an entry to their normal GRUB menu. Select "Yes" to place a Chainload option on the GRUB menu. When GRUB boots the next time, the user can select a normal GRUB entry or transfer control to GRUB 2 via the Chainload entry.08:55
rinku_kokiri^^ can't do08:55
aaaoooaaaalright Ill upload the files onto pastebin08:55
ozramyes i saw some locked folder, with parts of the erroneous "deb conversion"... in the download directory. is deleting that.. enough?08:55
jribrinku_kokiri: "can't do" because...08:55
rinku_kokiribecause it fails08:55
crashanddie_TorrBY, it could be that bash isn't installed, and then the default shell can crash on bash-specific keywords08:55
jribrinku_kokiri: fails how exactly?08:56
rinku_kokirijrib> error: cannot find device for / (is /dev mounted?)08:56
crashanddie_rinku_kokiri, you messed up your partitioning08:56
TorrBYcrashanddie_, bash 4.1.5(1)-release08:56
rinku_kokiri.it did it itself08:56
rinku_kokirijrib> ^^08:56
rinku_kokiriso no08:56
jribDwade09: I still don't see "text" there.  Do you know what you have to do?08:56
crashanddie_rinku_kokiri, reinstall, and select "use one device for all" (new users) or whatever the exact name is08:56
aeMaethi think it's installed, just the shell might be ignoring bash and running with dash anyhow...08:56
rinku_kokiricrashanddie_> that's what i selected in the first place08:56
crashanddie_TorrBY, what error do you get?08:57
Dwade09jrib i added "text" after the line you told me to add in the /etc/default/grub08:57
jribDwade09: oh I see what you did.  No use the existing line that says GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT08:57
TorrBYcrashanddie_, this http://p.defau.lt/?3f_C3uw7daTY2LbKFPccig alsways return "unknown"08:58
Dwade09then i get the error as before08:59
aeMaethwithin the quotes08:59
jribDwade09: you still haven't pastebinned the file that gives you the error08:59

petanaaaoooaaa: sorry I didn't watch your issue I don't know what you need09:01

jribDwade09: oh I see what you did.  No use the existing line that says GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT09:01
s7hi, am running an all ubuntu internet cafe. i need a recommendation for time management software09:01
ozramso ... about the failed deb-conversion leftovers from alien. is it enough if i delete those files which ended up in a "locked" folder... within my download folder?09:01
jribDwade09: and delete the line you added...09:02
crashanddie_TorrBY, it's not a shell issue, it's a problem in your algorithm09:02
rinku_kokirijrib for future knowledge (so you actually know how to answer someone's question next time) i used this to fix... no thanx to you  http://www.webtechquery.com/index.php/2010/04/install-grub2-from-live-cd/09:02
ozrami mean if alien said it failed. did it maybe partially install my flash plugin and i have to go and remove/clean that up now with sort of "apt remove"... or not?09:03
rinku_kokirijrib> maybe you can add that to your quick list of !'s or help pages09:03
Dwade09i added GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text" then you said put text on the other one so i did, now its saying that. it worked the other way but booted into gui.09:03
TorrBYok, i'v found. problem is in ^M at the end of each line of FLISH09:03
jribrinku_kokiri: if the wiki directions are lacking, it would be great if you could update them with your experience09:03
chevieCan someone get 'wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/lucid/universe/binary-i386/Packages.bz2' and then check the file with 'bzip2 -t Packages.bz2', please?  When I do this, bzip2 complains about a CRC error (and so does my 'apt-get update') :-(. TNX.09:03
jribrinku_kokiri: I'm not sure why you seem to be mad at me for sending you information09:03
rinku_kokiriyep cause you're too busy "helppin people" huh09:03
crashanddie_TorrBY, also, you shouldn't use uppercase variable names09:03
rinku_kokirimaybe if you wouldn't have trigger happied me09:04
ozramhow can i display a user bar in x-chat? :F09:04
crashanddie_TorrBY, you might have collisions with environment variables -- always use lowercase (or begin with lowercase and use uppercase to separate words, etc)09:04
aaaoooaaahi guys I have a CSV file(ORIGINAL : http://pastebin.com/XHm4JqRp ) that I need to edit and cannot edit it via openofficeCalc/msexcel because it changes the structure of the file(File Open + saved in calc with no "changes" : http://pastebin.com/JxVsLjmp ). The only way I can think of doing it is to create an ODBC connection to the csv file and then hopefully edit it via open office Base. Is this the fastest way to get it done? If so how should i go abou09:04
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, actually, the second file is valid, the first isn't.09:05
Dwade09jrib, where it says quiet splash do i remove that and put text?09:06
ozramokay again... despite the ops recommendation. anyone experienced care to help for 10-15 mins. @ query?09:06
spandiDoes Empathy support video chat for GTALK ?09:06
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, would also recommend using an IRC client that is aware of the message limit, your last line was cut ("If so how should I go abo")09:06
bazhangozram, ask here09:06
aaaoooaaacrashanddie_: yeah i sorta know that but i have to work with the former method09:06
ozramits not 1 question09:06
aaaoooaaai mean format09:06
jribDwade09: add text so it will have three words09:06
bazhangozram, then ask them one by one.09:06
ozrammy main goal is to get thise cheap chinese midi keyboard running on ubuntu09:06
ozramwhich is... like.. quite a few steps left. i suppose09:06
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, then just write a quick shell script that "fixes" it after your changes09:07
Kyriusi have a question09:08
aaaoooaaacrashanddie_:  Yeah except I dont know the nature of the commaing and IM not prepared to take risks09:08
jribaaaoooaaa: how was the existing file created?09:08
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, btw, the only changes that could ever possibly impact it are the first 6 lines09:08
petanKyrius: go ahead09:08
Kyriusis there a way to make rarfilesource work o linux? or is it already out there and i can't find it09:09
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, where you have a bunch of ,,,,, at the end09:09
aaaoooaaacrashanddie_: whatdya mean?09:09
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, other than that, the files are pretty much exactly the same AFAICT09:09
petanKyrius: what rarfilesource09:09
aaaoooaaacrashanddie_: youre wrong. I passed it into a file comparator and its all over the place09:09
aeMaethKyrius, i thought vlc could do that five years ago09:09
Kyriusit is a codec that enables you playing video straight from rar09:09
aaaoooaaacrashanddie_: tried chaning it by replace but that only made things worse09:10
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, don't tell people who are trying to help you "you're wrong"09:10
aeMaethpetan, http://www.v12pwr.com/RARFileSource/09:10
petanKyrius: try vlc - apt-get install vlc09:10
Kyriusi have vlc09:10
Kyriusdoesn't work09:10
Kyriushow do i enab le it09:10
aaaoooaaacrashanddie_: im sorry didnt mean for you to take it personally. I just meant to say that i checked and it isnt just the first few lines09:10
Dwade09jrib i added text to all three of the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT and still boots into xsession09:10
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, obviously, your parser can understand empty fields (15th line, "TAG,,Local" -- so having ,, or ,"", doesn't make a difference)09:10
jribDwade09: there aren't three lines with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT.  There's only one.  There's another line that kind of looks like it, but it's not.  And then there's the line that you added, but you should remove.09:11
petanKyrius: sorry no idea, mybe others09:11
Kyriusit's ok, tnx anyway09:11
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, so the fact that the last two fields are being nulled (15th line, ","","" becomes 8th line ",,) has little to no bearing09:12
aaaoooaaajrib: a proprietary program called RSLogix500009:12
veteranhello..how can i download source code of programs?09:12
jrib!source > veteran09:12
ubottuveteran, please see my private message09:12
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, other than that, it's just empty lines which are removed09:12
gogetaKyrius: extract your rar09:12
jribaaaoooaaa: why not save it in OOo without making changes and use some sort of diff program to see what changes.  Then you can check if it's just the initial part of the file that's getting changed09:13
Dwade09jrib done and done, but it boots back up into xsession09:13
jribDwade09: right, so I asked you to pastebin the file09:13
zambai'm looking for a piece of software that can timeshift a potentially infinite video stream and let's the user extract portions of the video stream on demand.. does anyone know of something like that?09:13
crashanddie_jrib, that's what he did09:13
Kyriuswhy would i want to extract it if i can play it straight out of rar09:13
jribcrashanddie_: ah, I missed that09:13
aaaoooaaacrashanddie_: it isnt about the nulls09:13
gogetaKyrius: so lazy09:13
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, have you tried using the file?09:14
gogetaKyrius: yout not saving any space having movies rard there aruldy compressed09:15
Dwade09jrib http://pastebin.com/GhGQLhFY09:15
aaaoooaaacrashanddie_: yes, it wont accept it, i RTM and it explicitly stated that I shouldnt try to edit the file using excel09:15
Kyriusthat's true09:15
jribDwade09: ok, now what happens when you run « sudo update-grub »?09:16
airtonix!find csv09:16
ubottuFound: csv2latex, csvtool, libclass-csv-perl, libcommons-csv-java, libcommons-csv-java-doc, libcsv-java, libcsv-ocaml-dev, libdbd-csv-perl, libtext-csv-encoded-perl, libtext-csv-perl (and 2 others) http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=csv&searchon=names&suite=maverick&section=all09:16
Dwade09it updates, then whne i reboot it, it boots into the xsession. jrib.09:16
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, basically, any CSV editor is probably going to re-write your file as OO has done. You're probably better off using vim to edit the file09:16
jribDwade09: ok, now pastebin /boot/grub/grub.cfg09:16
Kyriuswell, i'll live09:16
Dwade09jrib, how do i get the file besides using nano ?09:16
aaaoooaaacrashanddie_: is msaccess/openoffice base a CSV editor?09:16
jribDwade09: gedit?09:17
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, yeah, they all work the same09:17
gogetaKyrius: lol just saw it as someone with to mutch time making that plugin09:17
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, they load the file into memory, and when you ask to save, it jumps dumps it through a transformer: memory > CSV file.09:17
jribaaaoooaaa: you should ask the makers of the software how you /can/ edit the csv file09:17
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, they don't actually go and edit a single part of the file, they just overwrite the whole thing most of the time.09:17
aaaoooaaacrashanddie_: can I use sql?09:18
aeMaethgogeta, i see how it could be helpful to leave it in rar's if that's how you get them and you have a lot..save space..but you could load the video into /tmp and watch it from there :P09:18
aaaoooaaajrib: I have but they take forever to get back to me09:18
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, you can try, but I'm betting you a buck or two it will be the exact same result09:18

m4rkhi there.. i installed ubuntu netbook remix, but the interface is so terrible, i've ended up using regular gnome. is there any benefit to switching to xubuntu?09:20
gogetaaeMaeth: limits of compresion in genrel09:20
aeMaethit's already in the rar, and if he extracts it it's in two places now, so he's saying it's easier to leave it be09:20

ubottuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)09:21
blackshirterry: what you mean ??09:21
amageethe machines can see each other.. i've told machine A to "share" a directory, i just don't know how to access that directory from machine B09:21
aeMaethgogeta, it started because of irc, and carries on for ???? reasons09:21
gogetaaeMaeth: pretty mutch09:21
erryblackshirt, i want the mysql db back09:21
aaaoooaaacrashanddie_: http://pastebin.com/XHm4JqRp line 79 : "IN_FS_2_00" needs to be changed to "IN_2_00_FS" and line "OUT_SV_5_01" "OUT_5_01_SV"09:21
errylike the mysql mysql db09:21
Dwade09thank you jrib i will add "text" beside them first.09:21

crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, only on line 79 or all lines?09:22
gogetaaeMaeth: at least for torrents09:22
aeMaethgogeta, well, useless in this day and age, but when everyone had slow connections and it could corrupt,  packs were easier09:22
blackshirterry: i don't know and can' figure out your problem... if you want back, you can install it again09:22

jribDwade09: no problem, glad it worked09:25

erryjrib, it seems to keep the config and dbs tho09:37
metallicowhat does "relocation error" mean?09:37

crashanddie_jrib, no idea, which is why I put the commas there09:40
cabrilohello all... how do I enable session choosing in GDM in Ubuntu 10.04?09:41
jribcrashanddie_: echo 'foo bar foobar cat(bar)' | sed -e 's/\<foo\>/x/g; s/\<bar\>/y/g'09:41
crashanddie_jrib, yeah, he probably should do the second one before the first...09:41
gogetacabrilo: press the session buttion09:41
petanmetallico: try get it from mozilla.org just to ensure it's same09:41
petanmetallico: just unpack it to ~/bin/ff/09:42
crashanddie_aaaoooaaa, anyway, you get the idea, feel free to ask some more questions if you have them. Good luck.09:42
cabrilogogeta, no session button...09:42
gogetacabrilo: shure is says session09:42
cabriloit's strange though. I have it set up so there is automatic login after N seconds... during this time, I can choose a session, but that's the only time. e.g. when I log out, there isn't one09:42
gogetacabrilo: unless your using auto login09:43
cabrilogogeta, I tried without auto login too09:43
cabriloand there isn't one09:43
metallicodownloading now09:43
n3rV3cabrilo, try f10 on the login screen might work...09:43
cabrilolet me give that a try09:44
cabrilon3rV3, nope :(09:44
petanmetallico: run it from ~/bin/ff you can execute it from nautilus09:45
cabriloI have universal access preferences, date/time and shut down buttons09:45
zambai'm looking for a piece of software that can timeshift a potentially infinite video stream and let's the user extract portions of the video stream on demand.. does anyone know of something like that?09:46
n3rV3cabrilo, do you have any other desktop mangers...09:46
cabrilon3rV3, kdm is also installed09:47

cabriloI couldn't even get the list of users to show in kdm09:47
oamso, could someone point me in the general direction of setting up a global proxy, also taking care of https? iptables solved my http/ftp forwarding problems, but mitm attacks and all.. for https :/09:47
vince_hi there09:49
metallicoi downloaded it and extracted to bin/ff what do i do next?09:50
petanmetallico: open it and run it's binary09:50
metallicoit started!09:51
petanmetallico: ok do you want to repair apt version? this one will work only for you09:51
cabriloseriously though, everybody else in 10.04 have session chooser in gdm?09:51
ikoniametallico: don't install anything from mozilla.org on your ubuntu install09:51
ikoniametallico: it will conflict with the versions installed by ubuntu and will not be managed by the package manager, so your desktop will not be aware of them09:52
petanikonia: if he just unpack it will not break anything, in his home09:52
cabrilocan somebody give me an example of their settings? e.g /etc/gdm/custom.conf09:52
BenomsHi, I use a laptop with ubuntu and have an external display in Clone mode (Nvidia 310M). My external screen is a higher native res than my laptop so things don't fit on the laptop screen when i'm using the external screen, which is fine, coz i'm using the external screen, but when i unplug the external screen, the laptop stays at the resolution too high for its screen (it doesn't squash, it just goes off the screen).  Does anyone know of a w09:52
cabrilogogeta, n3rV3, could you please paste me somewhere your /etc/gdm/custom.conf?09:52
ikoniapetan: depends how careful he is, there is no need to download anything from mozilla.org09:52
petanikonia: this help us to find where is problem09:53
petanikonia: you won't break apt version by unpacking it to ~/bin09:53
n3rV3cabrilo, one moment09:53
ikoniapetan: how ?09:53
vince_Does anybody know what's going on with the latest Ubuntu update? I'm suig gnome and the new update features a lot of KDE-related updates.09:53

cabrilon3rV3, thanks09:53
NocturnalGuycan anyone help me with ddclient?09:53
petanikonia: now I know that problem is not in plugins for instance09:53
ikoniapetan: disabling plugins in the firefox pacakge in ubuntu would prove that09:54
petanikonia: they are installed in profile and this new version started with them09:54

petanmetallico: backup /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.12 to ~/bck09:57
cabriloa bit annoying... I wanted to give KDE a try and realized I couldn't switch to it09:57
petanmetallico: replace the file with version from ~/bin you will need to do that as root, I suggest to use mc for that09:58
ikoniametallico: do not do that09:58
ikoniametallico: your system will lose support09:58
plitterHello, I added the sentence <options snd-hda-intel model=lifebook> in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf but nothings seems to really have changed after i rebooted, so i tried changed <options snd-hda-intel model=æøæaæøæå> and still nothing changed, is there something more i need to do to check different model settings?09:58

n3rV3MACscr_lappy, it would be along the lines chown -R u+x <username> /home/<pathtohomedir>10:12

ozramdo i need soundfronts for qsynth?10:37

ozrami just want to play keyboard. here..10:38
jribnickmoeck: why isn't it possible?10:38
sacarlsonozram: I used the keyboard software that interfaces the leter keys to the midi events to test it10:38
ozramwhat is it called?10:39
nickmoeckjrib: I'd rather not answer that ;)10:39
jribnickmoeck: it's dangerous to use an unsupported release as you aren't getting security updates any more...10:39
sacarlsonozram: I used the tmidity10:39
sacarlsonozram: and virtual midi keyboard10:40
sacarlsonozram: opps and that was timidity10:41
taranwhere can I get the list of channels available10:41
minimecHi I would like to mix (and record) two input devices (Zoom H2 + Logitech Headset) I guess I have to use some of the Moptions in Pavucontrol. How would I handle that?10:41
nickmoeckjrib: I know. It's a testing/lab environment and I need to be on Intrepid for the stuff that I'm working on10:41
ozramwhy a virtual one?10:41
sacarlsonozram: I don't have a midi keyboard just the keyboard on my computer10:42

ozrambut timidity... plays midi signals in sound?10:45
sacarlsonozram: I think timidity starts at boot but can start it from the terminal10:45
ozramso its like jackd or ... what?10:45
sacarlsonozram: yes timidity converts midi files to sound10:45
ozrami want to generate sound from midi signals10:46
ozramnot files10:46
sacarlsonozram: no jackd is more like a sound mixer10:46
ozrami have a keyboard here10:46
ozramdoes timidity do that?10:46
Osmosisperdonar sabeis alguno como se llama el canal de Java no puedo conectar a #Java10:46
ozrami started it from console. all that happens is some text showing up.. thats it10:46
sacarlsonozram:  timidity simulates a synthisizer with midi events it creates sounds10:46
sacarlsonozram: you can use your keyboard to create the events to play it10:47
OsmosisSorry i forget change the chip with the language XD!, somebody know what is the name of the Java channel?10:47
ozramdont know how some console text is supposed to generate sound for me from my keyboard. when i cant see anything starting in the gui?10:47
Osmosiswith #Java i can not achieve connect10:47
sacarlsonozram:  the patch panel will be the gui part to route your midi events to the instruments you want to play10:48

minimecHow can I record two input devices at the same time with PulseAudio?10:51
sacarlsonminimec: well your audio card might be sterio so it can record two sounds with a simple record program10:52
sinaihello,i am a greenhand,there is a software which named ‘Prism’ in my new OS, Who can tell me what it is? There are so many english that i can't understand well.10:53
sacarlsonminimec: you can create internaly software generated sound with more chanels with a recording software like rosegarden10:53
minimecsacarlson: I have a Zoom H2 and a Logitech Headset. They are both working and shown in 'input devices' in pulseaudio. SHouldn't there be the possibility to mix these two devices and use them as 'recording device'?10:53
sacarlsonminimec: sounds like two sound cards yes so you can use rosegarden or other to record them10:54
minimecsacarlson: Even more sound cards. 2x Webcam Sphere + Zoom H2 + Logitech Headset + Internal audio --> 5 input devices. Thx for the Rosegarden hint. Would I be able to stream the mixed devices or does Rosegarden just record them?10:56

ubuXubulea123 good idea u may need it someday13:01
sorywhat should I do ?13:01
ubuXubulea123 have u already made your windows back up disks?13:02
crashanddie_sory, "tap" isn't the correct name13:02
crashanddie_sory, basically, when you say "modprobe xxx", it tries to find a module for the kernel named "xxx". In this case, you asked it to load the module called "tap", and it can't find it.13:02

zambait's basically just a .desktop file13:10
ubuXubulea123 if u have chosen to protect your recovery partition as you stated then you are ready, if in doubt you can ask your computer manufacturer to be sure about securing that, but if you made your back up disks your even more secure.13:10
Dr_Williszamba:  if you want to do it for all newly made users. put it in /etc/skel13:10
Dr_Williszamba:  for allready made users.. not sure of a proper way to do that..13:10

lea123ubuxubu Any idea why the Windows Recovery Environment loader is showing as the largest partion ?? Thats quite confusing13:11
ubuXubulea123 no13:11
Dr_Willislea123:  Windows Recovery Env. Loader. may be the Windows 7 'boot' partition. or a 'system recovery' partition for restoreing windows.13:11
Dr_Willislea123:  how large is it?13:11
leadZEROAre there any good GUIs for Server that can control the various services? IE, DHCP, DNS, Web, FTP?13:12
ubuXubulea123 it includes your entire OS and the software to create those backup disks13:12
Dr_WillisleadZERO:  dont use webmin. :) theres another alternative.. ebox perhaps? i forget its name13:12
ubottuebox is a web-based GUI interface for administering a server. It is designed to work with Ubuntu/Debian style configuration management. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/eBox13:12
aftertafgot an answer : First of all, you can make "UseDNS no13:12
lea123Dr Willis its showing 125 GB which is the size of C drive... Vista has partioned my HDD into 3 partions viz C 125GB , D 125 GB and 1.6GB recovery partion13:13
ubuXubulea123 but when you create your ubuntu partition you will be making that separate altogether and using ext 3 or 4 your choice and you will not be touching the windows partitions13:13

lea123Yeah but its (recovery partion)  hidden you see13:16
Consul_FalxI have huawei E270 and ubuntu lucid amd6413:16
binkyblue_anna: i wasn't aware that u can chown for a group... just users?... checking man....13:16
blue_annabinky, even after that, you might need to be sure that the primary group for each user is group113:16
lea123Sorry Dr. Willis I didn't understand ..13:17
ubuXubulea123 you may be better off choosing the side by side option..after confirming which one is your recovery partition13:17
lea123Are you sure the side by side will not attempt to write on the partition recovery disk13:17
lea123What is the the meaning "device for boot loader installation" ??13:18
ubuXubulea123 thats why i said call your manufacturer and confirm which one the recovery is13:18
ubuXubulea123 grub should be prechecked off for that13:18
binkyblue_anna: the primary group is their names... so for it to work i have to change each one's primary group? what if I have other groups where one needs access but the other doesn't?13:19
lea123ubuxubu the manufacturere will not reply since its a VISTA machine13:19
Benoms1Hi, i'm trying to use ubuntu as a sort of home file server. Can anyone tell me if there is a way i can do file/folder replication. I want to make sure that a cop certain folders (eg, photos) are present on more than 1 disk and would like this to be automatic.13:19
lea123also its a hidden partition13:19
ubuXubulea123 yes they will if they preinstalled vista13:19
ubuXubui know its hidden13:19
Benoms1cop of*13:19
blue_annabinky, well for the touch to work, you shouldnt need to do that. but if you want user2 to be able to open the file after user1 creates it, you need to make sure the file is created with the shared group permissions13:19
lea123Would they be knowing in terms of SD1, SD2 and SD3 ?? you mean ..13:20
blue_annabinky, if you have many shared groups that they work with, your users will have to get used to the chown/chgrp commands13:20
ubuXubulea123 they will know exactly the  size and where it lies as opposed to c drive13:20

Consul_Falxhelp me, i need to configure an 3G/edge modem Huawei E270 on Lucid6413:21
ubuXubulea123 and that will give you confidence when we build your new partitoon13:21
binkyblue_anna: right i got you there, but the problem is i can't write to the directory to even do the touch...13:21
Dr_Willislea123:  you can examine all the partitions from a live linux cd. and see ahts on them.13:21
blue_annabinky, the key is to think of it as a binding between groups of files and a purpose, not a binding between groups ofpeople and a purpose13:21
pibarnasConsul_Falx: its blue light turn on and you cant navigate?13:21
blue_annabinky what is the owner and group of /home/user# (where you are touching a file)13:21
lea123ubuXubu , Dr Willis :  the graphic clearly shows the linear order of the partion first the hidden 1.6GB then 125 and 123GB ... which are the C and D drives13:22
ubuXubulea123 when i looked at ubuntu's graphical representation of my disk, you don't seem confident13:22
blue_annasorry, groups of people and the files ..13:22
lea123THE SD1 is the 1.6GB..13:23
ubuXubulea123 i meant when i saw that graph i could clearly see where everything was13:23
lea123sd2 = 125GB13:23
Dr_Willislea123:   I would guess the 1.6 is the windows recovery partition. Look on the partition see what files is there. sda1 would be the 1.6gb i imagine.13:23
binkyblue_anna: the owner is user2.  the group it's under is group1, user1 and user2 are members of group1, the dir i am trying to write in to touch, is 775  so owner:rwx and group:rwx, but its denying user1 write...13:23
Consul_Falxpibarnas: it's blinking in blue and i can access the ROM on the device13:23
Dr_Willislea123:  if sda3 is empty of files. you could install linux there.13:23
lea123Dr Wiliis precisely correct13:23
blue_annabinky, that's not exactly what I was expecting .. try touching a file in user1's home and changing the group to group1, then moving it there?13:24

Dr_Willislea123:  you need to delete the partiton thats empty. and let the installer use the space where its at.13:25
Dr_Willislea123:  thats one way to do it. or manually make the partitions.13:25
Dr_Willislea123:  you must have a / partition and a swap partition as a minimum.13:25

binkyblue_anna: i will try to see what happens, but in the end im trying to do a samba share and control access via groups... so it's got me stumped, because the samba permissions are all set but the simple writing for group access is not working right from the console...13:26
Dr_Willislea123:  for starters it would be 'sda3'  and if its empty.. you can delete it..13:26
Dr_Willislea123:  it can NOT be a ntfs/ or vfat/windows aprtition. You must make linux partitiosn.13:27

binkyblue_anna: the mv didn't work either, access denied.  no i can't get the rights working on the actual box13:28
Dr_Willislea123:  new partition.. not partition table....13:28
Dr_Williskek:  is the script using Bash or sh?13:28
binkyit's ubuntu server 10.1013:28
duckx0ris there a way to change the language for menus and windows by the command line?13:29
kekDr_Willis: tried both. Using #!/bin/bash -i at the top of the script makes it work...13:29
lea123Dr. Willis Wow I didn't know that difference which meant - I had to hit ADD and it brought a small dialog box asking me to choose the type of new partion from primary or logical ??13:30
blue_annabinky, okay .. I dont know how samba works .. the groups and users you have on one machine are only superficially related to the groups and users of another .. for example if you removed the remote drive and plugged it in locally, and it had a user uid 555 named pinky, that disks files would show up with the name of the user with uid 555 on your local machine. your problem is actually with samba and not with unix fs, the f13:30
blue_annailesystem part you have set up correctly13:30
binkyblue_anna : some extensive searching in google before i came here made me think it was acls... but not sure13:30
blue_annaIm surprised , windows still uses samba?13:31
binkyblue_anna: sorry to confuse... i should not have mentioned samba... even in my simplest original example, having nothing to do with samba, just standard unix commands, it's not working.13:31
blue_annabinky, well, you said the drives you are writing to are not local13:31
lea123Dr. Willis a small dialog box asks me to choose the type of new partion from primary or logical ??13:32
greywalki have a question - ubuntu 10.10 - i cannot start ntfs-config tool - it asks for the password, but the application does not launch. can anyone help me with that?13:32
Dr_Willislea123:  i always use primaries13:32
blue_annabinky, if the drives are on a different machine than the user permissions files, that would explain the errors13:32
Dr_Willislea123:  if you just saved the layout with  that partition deleted.. you could restart the isntaller and tell it to use 'unallocated' space. and it would auto partition.13:32
binkyblue_anna: i was just letting you know where i eventually was trying to get.  im saying that i cant get a simple touch on local drive with local users working with group permissions.13:33
Dr_Willislea123:  example layout --> (windowws recovery)(windows) (/) (swap)13:33
Dr_Willisbye all.. bbl13:33
maverickjesusdoes anyone know if its possible to change the screen draw size in ubuntu?13:33

OsmosisDo you know something why the ##java channel is not accesible?13:34
blue_annabinky that should work .. there are examples online that demonstrate the effect. is there free space on the drive?13:34

n3rV3maverickjesus, thats your display(hardware) settings, find the menu button on screen and try adjusting13:35
binkyblue_anna: yea it seems to me straight forward, but for some reason permisson is being denied.13:35
lea123What is the difference between primary and logical partion ??13:35
ikonialea123: nothing13:35
duckx0rmaverickjesus, could be your monitor. is there some sort of "auto" button on it?13:35
binkyblue_anna: owner works, root works, but group doesnt13:35
ubuXubulea123 i chose logical and i saw doctor said primary so dont worry13:35
maverickjesus its an LCD tv for a media center13:35
LjLlea123: there can only be 4 primary partitions, so logical partitions are a trick to have more. basically, one primary partition is designated as an "extended partition" and can contain several more "logical partitions"13:35
ubuXubumine works great13:36
maverickjesusreason I ask is it never used to do it13:36
maverickjesusonly since I updated to 10.1013:36
lea123OK ubuxubu then I am sure i need to choose location for the partion as end rather than the beginning right considering my windows recovery partion is in the front13:37
lea123or beginning13:37
OsmosisLjL i dont have created a password13:37
binkyblue_anna: i suppose i should fire up a gentoo vm i have and try it there, but to me this seems so basic... albeit i havn't messed with groups on ubuntu before, but i assumed the same across platforms...13:37
OsmosisLjL just a username13:37
ubuXubulea123 build it, make it ext 3 or 4 (3 is better IMO), format it, choose / as the mount point13:37

ubuXubuikonia but i have seen odd behaviour in 4 but then again thats just me i told lea123 3 or 413:45
ikoniaubuXubu: why are you still going on about this13:45
ubuXubuso enough of the 3/4 stuff13:46
binkyblue_anna: you can do a sudo groups "user" to get the groups for that from any user with sudo13:46

crashanddie_Vogg, ask a question13:51
Voggits all baby speak13:51
tsimpsonStaRetji1: by default the root user is disabled, so you can't login to it. also many DEs disable login as root anyway13:51
lea123ubuxubu :)13:51
castblue_anna: fyi, you can use newgrp team to save relogging in13:51
crashanddie_hariom, can you connect to port 1194 on UDP?13:51

ubuXubulea123 i think overall ikonia knows more than me but i have 18 dual boot computers in my basement hehe13:52
blue_annacast, yes13:52
quiescensblue_anna: in short that is pretty much the expected behaviour, the list of groups you belong to are set when you log in13:52

tsimpsonheiher: you an not13:54
crashanddie_Vogg, what happens when you tracepath another website?13:54
popeysresu: thats tricky, 3gp is a format we don't support out of teh box, you might need medibuntu ffmpeg codecs for that13:54
StaRetji1tsimpson: I've added password to root user and I have ssh access for root. So, I thought if I start xfce4 session as root I could run apps as root also, plus I have some bash scripts, I guess they will run without a permission problems if ran as root user.13:54
ubuXubulea123 hey you did the job right by making all your back ups 1st so just dive in13:54
popeysresu: vlc might be able to do it though13:54
blue_annabinky, if tht works then yes, you just needed to log in again13:54

QuagmireHello Guys, Did a fresh install of 10.04 LTS a few days ago and now each time I wake the system up from hibernation mode the screen will dim after just a very few seconds, but it doesn't always do the dimming thing. It will do it for a while, then quit, then do it again later. The only thing that stops it is a reboot. No, this is not a huge deal, but I'm curious if anyone else has noticed it or knows a cure (besides rebooting.) .LOL13:59
ubuXubuLjL u know why13:59
