shcherbakg_: with some effort imagemagick and gconf-tool would do00:01

Agent_Smithr007: thanks for your help as well00:02
puddlesg_: this means you have to use a local background in a file you can write into :-)00:02
GneaXborder: okay. on the front of the desktop 'box' itself, do you have some small differently colored lights to tell you that the system is on?00:02

TheBawsOn my ubuntu computer00:02
Agent_Smithjpds: thanks ...00:02
GneaTheBaws: you'll need a *LOT* of hard drive space for that00:02
_jesse_TheBaws: the whole internet!? you think it'll fit?00:02
TheBawsIts harder than windows00:02

blackshirtTheBaws: what your troubles ?00:03
TheBawsI try to use the wireless internet00:03
TheBawswith the wireless card00:03
TheBawsbut it says it can't00:03
GneaXborder: okay, yes, those are the LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes). there should be one for power, another for the hard drive (HD or HDD) - the blinking one is usually for the HDD00:03
_jesse_TheBaws: do you mean wireless or broadband?00:04
michael__what kind of wireless card do you have?00:04
xx--ms-gulati-snTheBaws: wht you gotta do, is you gotta buy a full pro computer to run the internets00:04
XborderGnea yeah the green one as in power and a red blinking one for cpu processing00:04
shcherbakg_: he ment extra (copy) file to edit and substitute.00:04
TheBawsI mean the wireless internets00:04
_jesse_TheBaws: so you have a wireless router you are trying to connect to?00:04
WorkingOnWisewhat do I have to do to be able to set up my laptop for "offline imap" so I can read and delete main offline then sync back to gmail what I connect again, using evolution for the mail client?00:04
TheBawsyes00:05
TheBawsBTW this is on my PS300:05

lacrymologyDoes anybody know if there's a way for the USB drives to appear on a windows virtualmachine with virtual box? any other virtual machine will do too, but I'll have to reinstall, so I'd rather use virtualbox if it's possible00:05
_jesse_*ps300:05
TheBawsyeh00:05
_jesse_ah00:05
_jesse_lol00:05
TheBawsI want the intenets on it00:05
_jesse_TheBaws: I'm not sure how well they support that wireless card00:05
GneaXborder: actually, the red one is blinking to tell you that the HDD is processing information, which is sort of an extension of the CPU itself doing work, but not all the time, because the CPU has to do simple things like keeping track of time, which the HDD doesn't blink for, so the LED is only blinking when things like applications are launched, files are being saved, and when data is being moved in and out from RAM to SWAP and so forth00:05
TheBawsAh.00:05
TheBawsmaybe I need to use the cable internets00:06
yagoolacrymology, not ubuntu related.. ask #vbox.. yes you can hook up physical usb drives to a vm guest00:06
_jesse_TheBaws: I would suggest looking around  http://psubuntu.com/00:06
lacrymologyyagoo: thanks00:06
ActionParsniplacrymology: you can share the mount point as a folder in teh config, or use the closed source version. i suggest you ask in #vbox as it is more specific to your issue00:06
TheBawsokay I will go to that site00:06
GneaXborder: So, when you attempt to launch an application, does the red LED blink more often than not?00:06
xx--ms-gulati-sn_jesse_: oi how do i make a computer be able to watch the tvs00:07
_jesse_xx--ms-gulati-sn: with a tv tuner00:07
xx--ms-gulati-snwhere do i buy one?00:07
XborderGnea not really. it keeps blinking at the same rate as before00:07
_jesse_xx--ms-gulati-sn: I'd recommend newegg.com00:07
TheBawsI got one from the ebay00:07
TheBawsI bought the one with the lights on it00:07
GneaXborder: okay. what version of Ubuntu do you have installed?00:07
xx--ms-gulati-sni only have $4000:07
r007larcymlogy you can share it with the guest from the host iirc theres no way to assign a usb device unless its a hd00:07

r007Ive used Linux since back in the days of having to build from source yeah it was a pain but ffs you cant call it now and say windows works better with all the package managers00:14
ridinxx--ms-gulati-sn: use the ubuntu software center. it should be in applications -> games00:14
XborderGnea yeah but the only way i know how to set it up is going to my im accounts and since i have none yet set it up by putting my msn credentials the first time. yet when i go to system -> preferences-> im and voip accounts nothing happens. no "window" pops out00:14
yagooxx--ms-gulati-sn, you have to donate 35 dollars.. then you can play games00:14

r007xx--ms-gulati-sn anything thats better than your windows :D00:16
Habstinatridin: No, but my computer is 64bit (I'm running 64 bit Ubuntu on it right now, but it was with Wubi and I want to switch to a partition) and I want to have the operating system match. Why, does x32 tend to have better luck with this sort of thing?00:16

carandraugmasen, I know. Everywhere I look when I google it, they just say how to prevent. Couldn't manage to find a way to solve my problem yet00:35
GneaXborder: k, have you tried updating the software on the system?00:36
tucemiux_mobacal, sounds like you have a hardware problem with your hard drive, try reinstalling grub00:36
masencarandraug: i don't believe that it's possible00:36
mikha_<r007>it keep pinging and it give me internet timed out00:36
acalI can boot into the live ubuntu (test it out before you install) which is what I'm on right now.00:36
greg__I'm not sure how that would work, but idk I't probably not worth it, I think I'l just give in and give the westin my money00:36
ElPasmoacal have you any usb pendrive or external disk connected during boot?00:36
carandraugmasen, damn. aptitude upgrade was running. And the session closed when I was at those ncurses interfaces upgrading GRUB00:37
Lymani have a hewlett packard office jet g85 on a fresh 10.04 install, and it says the printer is online, but wont print, when trying to print self test page, i get CUPS server error, "client-error-document-format-not-supported" what can i do about this00:37
tucemiux_mobacal, the problem could also be that youre doing something funky when installing grub00:37
acalI have a usb mouse, PS2 keyboard00:37
Jordan_UHabstinat: Make sure that you enable verifying the md5 of the disk after burning in whatever burning software you use.00:37
ridinHabstinat: 4x is recommended00:37
acalHow am I doing something funky installing grub? How do I reinstall it, and will it fix it?00:37
masencarandraug: have you tried dpkg-reconfigure <pkg_name>00:37
greg__oh shit I got a plan00:37
ElPasmoacal: I had the same problem once, and it was when I had a external usb HDD connected...00:37
greg__how about netcat00:37
CaneToadany recommendations as to a good gui-based backup solution for ubuntu?00:37
Jordan_Uacal: How many hard drives do you have?00:38
sorush20hi, I'm copying 227GB and at 13 min remaining I had to restart the computer. Now that I am trying to repeat the process I get an option to merge, however the speed is very slow less than 1mb per second.00:38
r007mikah_ so theres no network issues this is weird00:38
acalI have one connected IDE and an optical drive SATA00:38
mikha_r007 i kno :S00:38
g_sorush20: it may be trying to locate where it was?00:38
XborderGnea not since it stoped working. msn empathy and ps3 media server and i havent noticed anything else not working. cant open system-> preferences-> instant messaging and voip either00:38
shcherbakgreg__: or use wget -R00:38
acalis there a terminal command that I can verify the OS?00:38
masencarandruag: for instance: dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc00:38
GneaXborder: I don't understand - are those 3 different applications or 3 different accounts?00:38
ridinacal, the last time i reinstalled grub was installing it in the MBR, then making a menu.lst for grub00:39
carandraugmasen, no. aptitude is still running. I still don't know if it will become a problem. It might. But before restart the computer and hope everything is okay, I was hoping to simply reconnect00:39
r007mikah_ do you have lynx instaleed or can you use wget?00:39
s093294I did put up a iptables prerouting forward, nothing else. If i make a request on eth1 ip the packages get forwarded, but on ppp0 ip they just get to the firewall and nothing more. Theres no drop polity, its all set to accept.00:39
greg__yeah alright I'm gonna give it a shot, but I gotta exit out of the irc client00:39

mikha_<r007> i will get lunx 1 sec00:39
masencarandraug: good luck with that mate, is the server distant?00:39
tucemiux_mobacal, I usually install to the master boot record, I dont know how you installed grub, it also sounds like it could be potentially a hard drive going bad, I would reinstall grub just to test00:39
Habstinatridin: 10x was the slowest option given in the Ubuntu "burn to disk" tool. Jordan_U: There doesn't seem to be that option. I'll check the MD5s of each individual file once the burn is complete.00:40
acalokay let me test the script then I'll try the reinstall00:40

masenFreeheart: wired or wireless?00:42
FreeheartFirst, I thought it was an issue with Skype, but found that Google Voice has the same issues, and then Ekiga using an entirely open protocol.00:42
Castboundguys iconfigured a new router as a switch, I have no problems to connect to it but the network icon is showing a red ! sign what does it mean? -- In addition to that I had a few problems to resolve some sites, like this irc channel, took me some secs to resolve00:42
Freeheartmasen: Wireless.00:42
Jordan_UHabstinat: You can also just run "md5sum /dev/cdrom".00:42
GneaXborder: I think you're a bit confused on the PS3 media server bit: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ps3MediaServer00:42
masenFreeheart: it could just be a straight up bandwidth issue...do you share the connection with others?00:43

Robinuxguys on a laptop i don't know what cpu it has, if a usb ubuntu x64bit installer fails to load and says "Boot error" ... it must mean its a 32bit system?00:46

snakesqznsFreeheart, I have the same problem with shoutcast00:46
rammyIRCi want to make my laptop connected to ethernet to be a hotspot...so i connect my ipod touch to it00:46

rammyIRCim using ubuntu 10.0400:46

Jordan_Umdpatrick: You're welcome.00:48
macoshomon: you shouldnt need a script00:48
tucemiux_mobacal, I might be mistaken but this message is saying you installed grub in the wrong partition, I would try reinstalling grub: Unknown BootLoader  on sda200:48
macoshomon:  newer versions of alsa are packaged now00:48
Freeheartsnakesqzns: Generally, I have no problems aside from the audio issues I'm describing.00:48
shomonhow do I diagnose sound not working in lucid?00:48
GneaXborder: okay, with the system monitor open, you can see either graphically what the system load is doing (if it's high, that's not a good sign, and if it's got little ridges, it's not doing too much) or if it's showing a list of processes, you can see which ones are using the most CPU usage00:48

Lymanany thoughts or comments on my printing problem00:48
shomonyup, vanilla install00:49
snakesqznsFreeheart, so you can confirm no issues with opengl apps,  or you haven't run any opengl apps?00:49

snakesqznswhy is ubuntu's kernel using 250 hz instead of 1000 hz??00:58
Lymanyagoo, thanks for the tip\00:59
Jordan_UHabstinat: If you take a new CD, burn it on another computer, and try to boot it on anther computer, then you will no that the disk is good and burned correctly. Then just try booting it on the problematic machine and if it fails to boot it's a hardware problem on the problematic machine.00:59

macowasutton3-Kira: i wonder if this is a bug. the mawk manpage says if its an empty string itll spit on individual characters01:48
blackplague1347izinucs: Guess that's what I'll do. Except I may use something than an Ubuntu spinoff, that way I have some idea of which version to get. I'm not sure if this is based off of 10.10 or 10.04, each of which has a specific VirtualBox version.01:48
wasutton3-Kiramaco: Hmmm01:48
macoshcherbak, wasutton3-Kira:  If FS = "", then mawk breaks the record into individual characters, and, similarly, split(s,A,"") places the individual characters of s into A.01:48

Habstinatridin and Jordan_U: Was able to boot a different CD I burned on my Mac on a different computer, so the CD isn't the issue. Now comes the moment of truth I suppose...01:53
izinucsblackplague1347: that's available.. try ubuntu in a vm and see if it works after installing sun-java6-jre01:53
macomcnellis: there are 4GB in use on my server01:53
blackplague1347izinucs: Yeah it's fairly new. I look at DistroWatch pretty often, so every now and then something interesting like that comes up. The main reason for avoiding standard Ubuntu was because last time I tried to install it, it would neither detect wireless connections, nor run java out of the box.01:53
blackplague1347izinucs: Well, Java shouldn't be much of an issue at this point because I downloaded the .deb and RPM from the java website onto my external hard drive. It's there if I need to install it.01:54
izinucsblackplague1347: right.. wireless is one issue.. java another.. java you have to install but it is in the repos01:54
mcnellismaco: that's not a bare install though, is it?01:55
shcherbakmcnellis: 300mb01:55
blackplague1347izinucs: Yeah. I can install it from the terminal with my external hard drive if need be, then get the latest version from the repos.01:55

mcurranno tail just says DIRECT ACCESS or [sdf] attached as SCSI device02:35
izinucsbojangles: ah.. that's not really dns.. that's ssh typically. You'll need port forwarding on the router to pass the ssh tunnel to the computer in your lan at home.02:35
mcurranjust use dmz host or dns-server02:35
bojanglesizinucs: don't i need dns if it's a dynamic ip address though? (in order to use ssh)02:35

axisyshow do I find the rpm of a disk from the os ?02:37
izinucsbojangles: you can use dyndns.com to set that situation up. in your router there will normally be a place to put the credentials for dyndns.com.. dyndns gives you a web address like izinucs-isa.geek.com which will pass to your routers public ip address .. from there port fowarding handles the rest.02:37

mcurranyes, this usb was working flawlessly and I've even had it multibooting several distros.  When I set it up as a plain fat partition and was transferring drivers from one XP machine to another is when it got messed up02:42

yagooaxisys, what's an x4150 all about?02:44
mcurranfat16 or 32 not sure, I used windows gay restore device defaults, so probably 1602:44
axisysyagoo: sun hardware02:44
yagoomcnellis, fat16 is restricted to 500 megs02:44
yagoomcurran, ^02:44
mcurranwell it was 4 gigs and recognised at the time so must have been 3202:45
yagoomcurran, and fat32 is restricted to creating no filesize greater than 4 gigs02:45
Diamondciteaxisys: Server class drives are somewhat harder to track down x.x02:45
mcurranI'm running bt4r1, so I'm going to try some of these digital forensics tools on them and see if I have any luck02:45
ubuntu4shaneyagoo, are you sure fat32 wasn't 2GB?02:45
yagoomcurran, a fat32 can have the filesystem size as 100 gigs.. but filesizes cannot exceed 4 gigs02:45
WXZwhat does "depends * (=*) but * is going to be installed" mean?02:46
mcurranwell it's a little besides the point anyways02:46
yagooubuntu4shane, 64kb can do 4 gigs ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fat32#FAT32 )02:46
ubuntu4shaneyagoo, ok, I guess you got the facts! :)  I was thinking otherwise, but you win. :)02:46

tecnicomcurran: I had that happened a couple of times. I yanked the key out and then I couldn't use it on any other machine. Not even on that same windows machine. But turned out I then tried plugging it on another usb port on that windows machine, it opened it, I tried writting to it and the nreleasing it. And it worked ok after that02:48

gksmithlcwDoes anyone know what would be preventing KVM guests from autostarting on server startup?02:50
Guest5192no02:50
Guest5192I never tried installing them02:50
mcurranyeah, I tried putting it in several xp machines, a windows 7 vm, and older gparted iso's - There are others with the same problem showing this in tail [sdf] Attached SCSI removable disk and lsusb showing USB DISK 30X, but not mounting, I'll just bring it back to BestBuy and say I wan't a new one.02:50
Guest5192unless a script tried to but I have more than enough disk02:51

* gksmithlcw is running libvirt02:51
Keshok.... here it goes:  I have an old laptop, compaq 1200.... it has I think a celeron..... it has Win2000 (originally came with ME) and now I want to replace it with Ubuntu... the question is, should I use the desktop edition or is it lighter to use the Netbook edition?02:51
ubuntu4shaneInfra`, I mean, java -jar file.jar02:52
gksmithlcwThe netbook edition is lighter but the desktop edition should be fine.02:52
Guest5192could you give me the codes?02:52
Guest5192command lines*02:52
ubuntu4shaneKesh, do you know how much ram it has?02:52
Diamondcitetry "sudo apt-get install hal"02:52
joshdreamlandSo I updated to Maverick for some reason, it gripes about my CPU being insecure, then drops into tty102:52
Diamondciteand see what happens.02:52
Keshdoes the Netbook edition need to be on a real Netbook>02:52
Keshdunno, I can check quickly02:53
joshdreamlandAnyone have a great way to fix this, or am I going to have to grope it until it finishes and works02:53
Infra`ubuntu4shane, Yeah that was the command I thought, it gives me this error. "Unable to access jarfile Mars.jar"02:53
Guest5192Errors were encountered while processing: hal winbind02:53
Guest5192when trying to instal hal02:53
yagoojoshdreamland, you've been reading too many train trips in japan about the groping02:53
banker247do you have to update your locate command database or does it do it automatically?02:53
ubuntu4shaneKesh, more than likely the desktop edition of will be fine, if you need something lighter there is Xubuntu02:53
yeatsjoshdreamland: the message about the CPU is probably not related to your other problem02:53
joshdreamlandyagoo: Actually, you might have a point there02:53
rablmy02:54
gksmithlcwSo will there soon be Gubuntu?02:54
DiamondciteGuest5192: (Too many guest nicks, pick something else with /nick newnamehere), Maybe hal's .deb file needs to be redownloaded =/02:54
ubuntu4shaneInfra`, try this: chmod +x Mars.jar  then try to run it again02:54
Keshok, I will try the Desktop edition,  actually thats the one I have downloaded and burnt to a cd02:54

yeatsjoshdreamland: Is the message you're seeing this?: "Your CPU appears to be lacking expected security protections."02:56
ubuntu4shaneInfra`, all we did there was made the file executable, has to do with permissions02:56
joshdreamlandyeats: Yep.02:56
gksmithlcwI take it no one's got anything on my KVM problem?02:56
joshdreamlandyearI assume this NX nonsense wasn't present in previous releases?02:56
KeshAnother question: is it difficult to configure a wi-fi card?  I have an old one, only has WEP (under win2000).   I just dont want to spend 100 hours reading forums to make it work in Ubuntu.02:56
yeatsjoshdreamland: then that's a separate issue from your video issues - that message began in lucid as far as I know02:57
ubuntu4shaneKesh, my experiences are some work well (many) I haven't ran into bad ones, but I know there are some out there02:57
ubuntu4shaneKesh, perhaps if you know the brand or chipset, google it and see if linux users have problems with it02:58
Keshok, fair enough... the few forum posts that I have seen look intimidating....02:58
joshdreamlandyeats: I haven't seen it before. But yeah, I'll ignore it. So why's it dropping me into tty1 if all it's telling me is that message?02:58
ubuntu4shaneKesh, understood, can be very intimidating when jumping in at first.02:58
antihc3anyone know if ubunut cd support vgacon install and where i can find some docs02:58
Keshyes, already found some posts with people using exactly the same card... so I am not alone, thanks anyway02:58

Keshoh...oh....one final and important question:  I tried running Ubuntu on that laptop, from the CD.. It works but there is a red message that says something like "Base address not set....update your Bios or force something...."... what would that be in general terms?03:01
joshdreamlandI don't know what else to say. Lucid worked fine, I updated via the Update Manager, now Maverick is broken03:01
joshdreamlandLucid is the only distro that could recover from blacklist.conf not listing agpgart and intel-agp (neither of which are loaded)03:01
yeatsjoshdreamland: there are regressions with nVidia cards - I have one, which is why I'm skipping Maverick03:02
ubuntu4shaneKesh, sounds like your BIOS is outdated and needs updated, oooor, the system time is not set right?  I'm not sure03:02

Faethincarlos: okay03:34
HabstinatHere's what I know: My disk reader is broken at startup and I can't boot from a CD, period; my USB reader is only mostly broken because it can't get the official installer right at startup, but it can read the alternate installer until halfway through installing Ubuntu it gives me a fatal error about not having a kernel; and I know that my CD and USB were both burned correctly with Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop (tried alternate installer 03:34
Faethincarlos: well, get the system monitor running03:34
carloscheck03:34
HabstinatI have a ThinkPad W700ds by the way, if it's an issue among those computers.03:35

rsyringCan someone help me figure out why getfacl doesn't show the same group permission that ls -l shows: http://paste.ubuntu.com/533335/03:35
Faethincarlos: the thing is, it's definitely a hardware problem if even the system monitor ceases to work for no apparent reason03:35
rsyringls -l shows that group has rw_ but getfacl shows it has r-x03:35
ActionParsnipHabstinat: do you check the ISOs you burn before you burn them?03:36
carloswhen its freeze it just freeze, cant do anything move the mouse and I dont have the system monitor open when it does03:36

Please  file bugs at http://launchpad.net/wubi/+filebug. For Ubuntu Maverick/10.10 http://releases.ubuntu.com/maverick/wubi.exe03:53

Faethincarlos: just give it a try and if it works, let us know03:53
carlosshould I back my files up03:54
sexy_ahh rhymthbox is trying to import shit from somewhere on its own03:54
Faethincarlos: well, it's always a good idea to have a back-up, you didn't do anything but turning off some functionalities. The laptop should still work.03:54
Habstinatsexy_: MikeChelen: I'm on a Wubi'd install right now, but I want to switch to a partition.03:55
carlosis a desktop03:55
WXZyeats: didn't help03:55

Faethincarlos: I need to leave for a minute. Be right back.03:55

carlosshould I do it anyway03:56

sexy_Habstinat, there is actually another way. It allowed you to boot right into the setup on the next restart. Google.03:58
toshiba_flex is what03:58
yeatsWXZ: that would be expected if it's exactly the same deb03:58
Guest30374Hi, Just installed a Qt application and now nautilus is using old x theme rather than GTK. Does anyone know how to resolve this?03:58
Habstinatsexy_: Extremely long story. Basically my CD reader is definitely broken and with a flash drive I can only get halfway in the alternate installer before I get a fatal error about having no kernel.03:58

sorakwhat kind of device, gambit?04:06
Gambit-sorak, USB 2.0 webcams.04:07
Habstinatsexy_: How? SBM won't work because it requires a CD. We went over USBs. My computer doesn't have a floppy drive. I don't want to use Wubi. Installing from Linux won't work because it isn't on a partition. Don't have a cable for VMware installation. That only leaves network installation...04:07
Faethincarlos: you there?04:07
Gambit-I need to get 5 of them about 200 ft, and I'd like to do it without spending $600.04:07

llolcatsmisteralexander: use lsmod to see what modules are loaded04:49
wasutton3-Kiranevermind thought it was something else04:49

llolcatsmmm04:49
llolcatswell its not that clear04:50
llolcatscoz the usally have wierd name04:50
llolcatslike usb_hid or somthing04:50
llolcatsi think there is a list of the module.o files in lib04:50

llolcatswhtch is a list of all thye avilible drivers04:51
llolcatsor rather kernal modules04:51
llolcatswell that problem is more likly todo with your xorg conf04:52
llolcatscd /etc/; find | grep  -i xorg04:52
misteralexanderI was under the impression that 10.10 doesn't have a static xorg.conf anymore . . . it's all been moved out of reach of an "Average User".04:52
llolcatsreally?04:52
llolcatsnfi04:52

MrAnthropeI installed StartUp-Manager which says in the Ubuntu Software Center description it can "Change settings for the bootloader and splash screen". The Help button says it accepts .so format for usplash themes.04:53
misteralexanderyou CAN have one, and the system will default to it, but by system intsall default . . . it's gone.04:53
MrAnthropeIt does not however explain what to do with the .so file...04:54
MrAnthropeWhen I open the program it just has display size and an option to turn on and off boot splash and show text during boot.04:54
VolkodavI do not see anything wrong in my /etc/grub.d/05_debian_theme04:54

MrAnthropeThe first splash screen I tried was incredibly simple. Almost as simple as changing the background.05:04
ferris_MrAnthrope install Ubuntu Tweaks05:05
MrAnthropeBut these others aren't through that Software Center thing, they're jsut files. And they won't do anything.05:05

faction918MrAnthrope, I left the conversation for a minute so I don't know where you left off; search a thing called plymouth. That is what ubunutu uses to display the screen during boot. This is different, however, form the grub splash (which you should not see unless you dual boot) and different from the logon screen. Here is a reference link: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/quick-tipplymouth-themes-in-ubuntu-10-04-lucid-lynx.html05:09
sexy_Mranthrope, nope that isn't working =/05:10
dmenearUbuntu just pushed a plymouth update...05:10

Ebrahempigiron, if the 64bit driver freezes the pc, that means I should find an alternative driver, right?05:13

lucent!kvm | jisiko05:21
ubottujisiko: kvm is the preferred virtualization approach in Ubuntu. For more information see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KVM05:21
jisikoi need to run linux 5.4 and probably some windows oses and virtual machines05:21
SpoofyI'm not too good with ubuntu, but I can manage a little.05:21
i_is_brokeyeah but the virtualbox you get from their site gives you usb support does kvm?05:21
Ebrahempigiron, lshw shows the driver is mdiswrapper+netathuwx05:21
VolkodavJordan_U: It only reads 2 lines from /etc/grub.d/05_debian_theme for some reason05:22
Ebrahemndiswrapper+netathuwx*05:22
misteralexandersirninja: it's all done in your /etc/hosts.deny file . . . google that & it'll walk you through it.05:22
pigironEbrahem: argh!  A ndiswrapper problem... you had problems the native driver?05:22
SpoofySo is anyone familiar with my issue?05:23
Jordan_UVolkodav: Add GRUB_BACKGROUND=/usr/share/images/grub/050817-N-3488C-028.tga to /etc/default/grub.05:23
misteralexandersexy_: what was the problem?05:23
ActionParsnipjisiko: there is no linux 5.405:23
WXZI'm trying to write a bash script which compiles and runs a c# program05:23
WXZhow would I do that?05:23
sirninjamisteralexander: I thought hosts.deny required ip addresses, it works with mac addresses as well?05:23
lucentActionParsnip: he's from the distant future05:23
Jordan_UVolkodav: Though since grub supports png also, and at a higher quality than that tga, I would recommend you use a png/jpeg image instead.05:23
ActionParsniplucent: very distant indeed05:23
SpoofyWXZ did you install mono?05:23
i_is_brokeSpoofy: im pretty sure win 7 has to be installed on the first partition but not  100%05:23
Ebrahempigiron, no native driver works with my usb, dlink dwa 126, the one i am using is windows' 64bit.05:23
WXZSpoofy: yes05:23
VolkodavLet me try Jordan_U05:24
ActionParsnipi_is_broke: it doesnt matter, it's all handled for you05:24
SpoofyCan I just switch the partitions with Gpartion on the ubuntu live CD?05:24
i_is_brokeActionParsnip: then why did it remove ubuntu thebn?05:24
ActionParsnipi_is_broke: not sure, i dont use windows05:24
IsmAvatarWhat is Jetty, and why do I have it installed such that it's printing messages at my boot screen?05:24
ActionParsnipi_is_broke: but grub doesn't care where it is05:25
i_is_brokeActionParsnip: haha me either...lol05:25
SpoofyWXZ, I'm not too good with bash, but I've compiled C# programs before using linux.05:25
i_is_brokeActionParsnip: yeah i know grub dont, but windows does care where it is, and i think it is suppose to be like the first partition05:25
pigironEbrahem: according to Wikipedia there are very few 64 bit Windows XP drivers available for use with ndiswrapper.05:25
WXZSpoofy: I have to, I just want a faster way to do it other than going into terminal05:25
SpoofyAh, I see.05:26
WXZand then cding into the right directory05:26
WXZthen running gmcs, then running mono05:26
SpoofyHave you tried using monodevelop?05:26
ActionParsnippigiron: use the vista 64bit drivers, should be ok05:26
sirninjamisteralexander: And is that the best way to do this? I'm on a network with many access points and it just so happens the one closest to my room doesn't function properly, but it has the strongest signal here, so ubuntu defaults to that one05:26
i_is_brokeSpoofy: its a lot easier if you install windows first as well.05:26
VolkodavJordan_U: still does not work05:26
SpoofyYeah, but I don't want to reinstall ubuntu :( It took me so long to get me the write setup heh05:26
Ebrahempigiron, if my usb vendor/device is listed in wireless.kernel.org, it should natively work right?05:26
Volkodavsudo update-grub does not see thew image05:27
WXZSpoofy: yeah, I guess I'll stick to monodevelop05:27
ActionParsnipsirninja: I believe nm can be told to ignore certain SSIDs05:27

sirninjaActionParsnip: Well, they all have the same ssid's it's the bssid's that are different05:27
ferris_Spoofy... yes do install winblows first and then linux05:27
misteralexandersirninja: Hmm . . . I think I misunderstood your problem . . . I'm checking right now.05:27
ActionParsnipSpoofy: if you do then the dual boot will be handled cleaner, install windows to only a portion of the drive space rather than the default 100% and you wont have to mess with resizing05:27
pigironActionParsnip: then Wikipedia is out of date... it says ndiswrapper doesn't support NDIS 6.05:28
ActionParsnippigiron: update it then, it's a wiki05:28
Balsaqu are supposed to install w7 1st not ubuntu on a dual booter05:28

misteralexandersirninja: I think I might over thinking this . . . you HAVE tried to use the built in GUI frontend for configuring your wireless, right?05:32
mcnuggetslucent: Neither. I just did an Dist upgrade with apt-get in Terminal and I seen a few headers or something with Google in the name.05:33

lexvegasmcnuggets, sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list to remove google sources.05:35
ActionParsnipSyco54645: once you edit and save the file, run: sudo update-grub   and it will put the settings in the grub.cfg file the right way05:35
sirninjamisteralexander: That could work, but there are A LOT of access points here (college campus) and only 1 I know of that doesn't work05:35
lexvegasmcnuggets, just delete the lines with google in it05:35
Spoofyokay, i'll try this!05:35
ActionParsnipEbrahem: is the device a usb wireless or an internal device?05:35
AbhiJitanyone using burg? does it bring load to boot time or boot process due to graphics? is it slow compared to normal grub? is it easy to configure?05:36

Sn4k3Ubuntu 10.10 dosent work of live flashdrive?06:26
bojangles10.10 won't allow me to change the executable permissions06:26
patsbinlucent: crazy shit. ubuntu sucks more and more every day06:26
pksadiqbojangles: did you try chmod?06:26
* lucent sighs06:26
lucentwaste of my time luser06:26
bojanglespksadiq: yes, unfortunately06:27
ActionParsnipSn4k3: yes it does, its a great way to install to netbooks06:27
pksadiqbojangles: and so sudo chmod?06:27
lucentSn4k3: I think Ubuntu 10.10 livecd ISO is difficult to get onto a USB flashdrive correctly06:27
Sn4k3no i have a problem06:27
BalsaqCarplips: the tags you're describing are "file attributes" which AFAIK are supported only within the OS and application, not at the lower file system on the disk.06:27
lucentSn4k3: it does work, just has some trouble because of conflicting versions of syslinux06:27
Sn4k3ohh anyway to fix06:27
Cyrano_DeFunny, more people would raise a stink if they changed software versions in the same release by default.06:27
bojanglespksadiq: yes, that didn't work either unfortunately06:27
ActionParsniplucent: it's not there is 1-2-3 app from pendrielinux for windows or unetbootin for both ubuntu and windows06:27
Sn4k3cuz i want install in my netbook06:28
ActionParsniplucent: not hard in any way06:28
lucentSn4k3: if it won't boot correctly, then well, I forgot how to fix it but there's something you can type if you did get a syslinux prompt, I think it's just "live" and enter06:28
pksadiqbojangles: what is output of ls -al a.out  ?06:28
ActionParsnipSn4k3: did you MD5 test the ISO you have?06:28
Sn4k3yea06:28
Cyrano_DePeople are given an easy route to move to a newer version and are still not happy.06:28
bojangles-rw------- 1 tom tom 17376 2010-11-17 01:18 a.out06:28
lucentActionParsnip: syslinux is poofed, I've tried Unetbootin and the Ubuntu image creator, both do it wrong06:28
Sn4k3and it says some ramzwap thing06:28
ActionParsnipSn4k3: and what OS are you making the live USB in?06:28
ActionParsniplucent: tried pendrive linux 1-2-3 app?06:29
Sn4k3ubuntu 10.1006:29
lucentActionParsnip: no, it was not suggested to me by Ubuntu docs to try pendrive linux 1-2-3 app06:29
Sn4k3cuz my desktop runs it fine cuz i used a cd06:29
pksadiqbojangles: what is the output of sudo chmod +x a.out   ?06:29
bojanglespksadiq: there's no out06:29
ActionParsniplucent: its a windows app and can downloaded the iso for you and MD5 test all in one, its nifty :)06:29
lucentActionParsnip: I'll remember that next time I have access to Windows ? :)06:30
pksadiqbojangles: after trying that try ./a.out        ,what is the output?06:30
Cyrano_DeWhat would they be saying about Ubuntu if the newer version of pidgin were added mid release cycle and all of their contacts and logs got deleted....06:30
ActionParsniplucent: ok, if you have network access the run: sudo apt-get --reinstall install usb-creator usb-creator-gtk   so its the latest one then use that06:30
bojanglespksadiq: bash: ./a.out: Permission denied06:30
ActionParsniplucent: nice06:30
pksadiqbojangles: try sh a.out06:31
ActionParsnipbojangles: sudo chown $USER:$USER ./a.out  then retry06:31
lucentit's been a decade now without Microsoft, pretty much wonder when something better than Ubuntu is going to come along so I can use that06:31
bonez2046could I make a print server from an old ubuntu box.. so that I can share my parallel ported laser jet iii p on my LAN?06:31
pigironEbrahem: does "ls /lib/firmware/ar7010*" produce a hit?06:31
lucentbonez2046: ah, you could.  The LJ IIIP is a nice old printer for sure ;)06:32
lucentbonez2046: aren't your rubber rollers worn out and cracked yet though?06:32
bonez2046lucent: we bought this one damned near 20 years ago .. still works great.. have repaired a few things on it06:32
Ebrahempigiron, no such file or directory06:32
bonez2046lucent: I have replaced the clutch, the laser, and the rollers.. I think the top rollers are due for replacement06:32
lucentthat thing is older than Office Space06:33
lucentLP LOAD LTR06:33
pigironEbrahem: check out this web page... http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k_htc06:33
bojanglespksadiq: http://paste.ubuntu.com/533368/06:33
bojanglesActionParsnip: that didn't seem to do anything06:33
bonez2046lucent: yeah.. I am installing 10.10 on an older deskpro.. hoping to plug this printer as well as a scanner into this box.. to act as my print and scan server06:33
ActionParsnipbojangles: it changed the file ownership to your current user, you should now have access06:34
lucentbonez2046: usb-parallel adapter on your desktop machine might be more efficient06:34
bonez2046lucent: I know I could buy a box from HP et al, that would give the printer an IP.. but this box is just sitting around..06:35
pksadiqbojangles: what type of file is it? is it a compiled file actually?          does gedit a.out           shows any readable texts?06:35
lucentpersonally I wouldn't be able to justify the electricity06:35
bojanglesActionParsnip: a.out doesn't show up as executable though06:35
bonez2046lucent: usb-parallel? is that a hardware device?06:35
ActionParsnipbojangles: thn run: chmod +x a.out06:35
pigironEbrahem: argh!  I should have said "ls /lib/firmware/ar9271*"06:35
bojanglespksadiq: it's compiled f90 code06:35
lucentbonez2046: yeah it's parallel port on one side, and usb on the other, so you can plug old stuff into USB capable computer06:35
lucentinstead of a print server though, just plug it in when you need it or what06:36
bojanglesActionParsnip: that still isn't changing anything06:36
Gorrothhi06:36
pigironEbrahem: ... at least I think /lib/firmware is correct... I don't run Ubuntu.06:36
pksadiqbojangles: fortran?06:36
bojanglespksadiq: yes, sorry06:36
bonez2046lucent: well, my wife and boys print to this printer.. on home LAN.. so I need to have it on.. but I guess they COULD send their jobs to it and then come down and switch the printer on06:36
Gorrothalright, i'm a bit confused here.  how in the heck do i add a "Terminal" icon or something to the kubuntu netbook GUI?06:36
Ebrahempigiron, yes one hit, /lib/firmware/ar9271.fw06:36
Gorrothi found out how to add apps06:37
Gorrothbut it's freakin' confusing06:37
lucentbonez2046: lights dim when you turn it on? ;)06:37
bonez2046lucent: no, they are fine..06:37
pigironEbrahem: do you have a /var/log/messages file?06:37
pksadiqbojangles: try gfortran to compile, did you did so ?06:37
lucentI'm just kidding, wandering o/t06:38
bojanglespksadiq: yes, that's how i compiled it06:38
linux_probeprintserver, or get a networkable printer :)06:38
Ebrahempigiron, yeah06:38
ActionParsnipbojangles: is a.out in $HOME?06:38
bojanglesActionParsnip: no, it's on an ntfs partition where i store all my files06:38
MrAnthropeBut why is the splash screen purple? This seems like a bad decision.06:38
pigironEbrahem: k... what does it say after you "sudo modprobe -r ath9k_htc" and then "sudo modprobe ath9k_htc"?06:39
bojanglesI'm assuming it will run on the linux partition, but it used to not have to be that way (pre-10.10)06:39
pksadiqbojangles: if it works in linux partition make it executable from a linux partition and copy or dd it back06:40
bonez2046linux_probe: the purpose in setting up server is to NOT have to buy a new networked printer06:40
Ebrahempigiron, registered new interface driver ath9k_hif_usb06:40
linux_probedidnt see that part06:40
ActionParsnipbojangles: ahhh, thats why. NTFS is too primitive to store UNIX permissions which is why you are getting issues. If you move it to an Ext3/4 etc partition, it will be fine06:40
bonez2046linux_probe: no worry06:40
doomgiverhey guys, i cant get into the ##c++ channel06:40
chiddid you registeR?06:41
doomgiverit says "cannot send to channel06:41
ActionParsnipdoomgiver: i think you need to register06:41
bojanglesActionParsnip: this wasn't an issue until i upgraded though06:41
doomgiveri have to do it in EACH channel?06:41
bojanglesi could run things off external hard drives too06:41
lucentActionParsnip: I'd guess that it's set when you mount NTFS to disallow executing programs from that mountpoint? not the permissions issue06:41
lucentwell it could be permissions are forced -x by default06:42

wrektjethey all. my webcam is functioning for video but i cant figure out how to get the audio working. it used to work just fine but when I moved some usb devices around it started having problems. when i test the input on multimedia selection it seems to work by making echoing noises but in programs like skype it doesnt06:44
Ebrahempigiron, nope06:44
bojanglespksadiq: i can set the permissions in my linux file system but i lose them when i copy it back to the ntfs partition06:44

A_New_ServerI'm trying to put a globalmenu on Ubuntu and I found this link on google (http://code.google.com/p/gnome2-globalmenu/wiki/InstallingonUbuntu), for step 3, how do I know which one of those I am using06:44
lucentwrektjet: System | Perversions | Sound ;  select webcam for input, quit skype, open skype, skype preferences and check everything out06:44
pigironEbrahem: crap... I'm tapped out... I just can't see why it's not firing up.06:45
lucentlol @ bojangles06:45
lucentcracks me up06:45
pksadiqbojangles: after making it executable try copying it back with dd command06:46
lucentyou people... doin' it wrong06:46
lucentthe mount could be forcing default permissions mask06:46
A_New_ServerHow do I know if I'm using Karmic Koala, Jaunty Jackalope, Intrepid Ibex or Hardy Heron, also what are those?06:47
ActionParsnipA_New_Server: lsb_release -c   will tell you06:48
ActionParsnipA_New_Server: the repo only has up to lucid on so is no use if you are using maverick06:48
bojanglespksadiq: i'm not sure how to use dd, but either way, i can't really keep copying a file back and forth...it just seems strange that upgrading would force people to migrate files?06:49

pksadiqbojangles: after making it executable use the command dd if=/path/to/a.out of=/path/to/ntfs/a.out06:50
lucentCaneToad: thanks, it's been noted before, but yeah what a tricky problem06:50
ActionParsnipA_New_Server: many do :)06:50
A_New_ServerIt says I have lucid, which isn't a listed thing on step 3, is there a way to get around that or change my [whatever that is]?06:51
pksadiqbojangles: please not that if you use dd command in a rong way , it might mess up your partition06:51

shawnboyGreetings. With meerkat, what's quickest way to playing all multimedia & DVDs? good bad ugly, medibuntu, or what?06:55
MrAnthropeOkay is there a way to completely uninstall a splash screen and just get the ugly text?06:55
MrAnthropeI'm getting really frustrated.06:55
shawnboyMrAnthrope: frustrated at what?06:55
MrAnthropeAnd maybe a little bit drunk.06:55
pksadiqMrAnthrope: :O06:56
MrAnthropeI've been trying to change my splash screen for like 6 hours.06:56
linux_probelol06:56
MrAnthropeI finally changed it. And the graphics are all FUBAR.06:56
MrAnthropeLike ALLLL fubar.06:56
linux_probecomment it out >_>06:56
Sn4k3can anyone help me with ffmpeg06:56
VolkodavMrAnthrope: Mine just does not change at all06:56
shawnboydid you first drop to command line from Grub and do a "vbeinfo" to see what your video can handle?06:56
lyjHi06:56
A_New_ServerActionParsnip, so rather than "http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ppa/ubuntu karmic main06:57
A_New_Server" I do "http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ppa/ubuntu lucid main06:57
A_New_Server"06:57
MrAnthropedid I first what?06:57
lyjdoes anyone know the screensaver in ubuntu?06:57
jshmoe24@anyone, I tried to install a .deb package through the ubuntu software center but it stalled out and then I went to cancel it and it is just stuck on cancel. I have tried sudo apt-get remove <package name>, sudo dpkg --remove <package name> and it still isnt working06:57
Sn4k3how to record your screen with FFmpeg ??06:57
lyjI want to find the one with a green radar scanning06:57
A_New_ServerAlso another thing (HOPEFULLY THE LAST >.>), software sources blinks with what looks like the box that prompts for a password and then disappears right after, how can I get it to work?06:57
A_New_Server(I'm a complete noob :[ )06:57
jshmoe24Just stays stuck on cancel :(  <-- sadface06:58
shawnboyMrAnthrope: When you see Grub, hit Esc, read what you have to push to get to command line. Then run "vbeinfo" to see what resolutions your computer will support in that mode.06:58
lyjAnyone can help me?06:58
MrAnthropeI don't see any grubs.06:58
ActionParsnipA_New_Server: exactly06:58
MrAnthropeThere's no dirt in here. It's my bedroom.06:58
jshmoe24Anyone know how to fix a locked canceling program from ubuntu software center?06:59
shawnboyMrAnthrope: then make your graphics that size, and be sure they are Mode RGB.06:59

jshmoe24will try and report back, appreciated06:59
MrAnthropeit just says UBUNTU . . . . .06:59
A_New_ServerDo you have any idea on the other problem? It's odd that it's doing that just like the terminal was07:00

pksadiqMrAnthrope: :D07:00
chris0626891I'm not trying to start a flame-war, but in your guys opinion, what's the best KDE distribution?  The more I read the more "ubuntu" seems to be going away from "conventional" Linux.07:00

wrektjetlucent not sure what caused the issue. but thanks for putting me in the right  spot. i was wasting lots of time in the multimedia selection07:02
MrAnthropeDoes anyone know how to disable splash?07:02
lucentshawnboy: medibuntu is not bad, I'd say just take it one codec at a time, if you need support find and install support for it07:02
lucentwrektjet: no problem, glad you got it figured out07:02
jshmoe24@ActionParSnip E: The package <packagenamehere> needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.07:02
jshmoe24wierd huh07:03
shawnboylucent: ok, so add support for mp3, flac, then chase down what packages are required for x.264, etc?07:03
pksadiqMrAnthrope: by splash do you mean that screen(Logo) at the ubuntu startup?07:03
MrAnthropeYup.07:03
MrAnthropeThe purple screen that says UBUNTU and is purple and has 5 flashing red/white dots on it.07:03
MrAnthropeI want it gone.07:03
jshmoe24I've been using ubuntu for years and havn't seen this. I don't like the ubuntu software center it crashes too much07:03
MrAnthropeDid I mention it's purple?07:03
shawnboylucent: I don't know what to look for when it comes to playing DVDs. honestly I don't remember what I installed to get it working in my previous releases.07:03
Jordan_UMrAnthrope: Hold shift during boot and select recovery mode from the grub menu.07:03
MrAnthropeAgain about grubs.07:04

jshmoe24@pksadiq, Awesome guy07:11
Gorrothdon't think i like it as much as the full desktop edition, but i see how it has its merits for this size screen07:11
MrAnthropeIs there a way to do that, balsaq?07:11
Ebrahempigiron, yeah07:11
MaahesMrAnthrope: I believe there is a way to make grub use the old-style splash screens, but I have been too lazy to do it.07:11
MrAnthropeI don't know what grub means.07:11
MrAnthropeIs that the splash screen?07:11
pksadiq!grub2 | MrAnthrope07:11
ubottuMrAnthrope: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since Ubuntu 9.10.  For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub207:11
MaahesMrAnthrope: Grub2 its the bootloader for ubuntu. It loads the splashscreen07:11
BalsaqMrAnthrope>prolly but i havent found it yet, it would be cool, all balck and white with numbers and letters flowing by like it was a test or something...old school.07:12
* Maahes also really hates OSD, but I haven't found a guide for how to remove it.07:12
MrAnthropeYes. Instead of big fugly purple crap.07:12

MrAnthropeI'm about to uninstall. Or bake a pie. w/e07:12
Balsaqand then at the very end...a black and white password screen all official looking, then right to desktop.07:12
MaahesMrAnthrope: This isn't a make it go away permanently, but if you hit Esc while it loads, it goes away.07:12
MrAnthropeI figured that out when I dropped my beer bottle on my keyboard.07:13
pksadiqMrAnthrope: :D07:13
MrAnthropeI now have a shrine to the beer bottle for making the fugly purple splash screen of doom go away.07:13
pigironEbrahem: he got it working by downloading, and compiling a RaLink driver... Huh???07:13
Maaheswill things that send notices via libnotify show up in the OSD notifier?07:13
MrAnthropeSo there's no terminal command to just make the splash screen go away?07:13

Balsaqthere are so many cool things a computer can do while its booting to desktop, tests, info about hardware, sped tests...would look cool on the way up.07:14

ActionParsnipCyber_Beast: open software centre and untick the CD as a repo. Also please don't flood like that07:53
ActionParsnipCyber_Beast: or you can edit /etc/apt/sources.list and comment the top line out by adding a hash symbol to the start of the line07:54

pksadiqActionParsnip: did you mean about ext4 partition?07:54
Cyber_BeastActionParsnip: I coudn't understand what to comment at the top of sources.list07:55
ActionParsnippksadiq: both fs-driver and the link you gave only provide access to ext2 and ext3. Lucid and maverick use ext4 by default07:55
pksadiqActionParsnip: what about http://www.soluvas.com/read-browse-explore-open-ext2-ext3-ext4-partition-filesystem-from-windows-7/07:55
furichipmink, all it has is two input devices, being "generic keyboard" and "configured mouse"07:56
ActionParsnipCyber_Beast: to comment, add a hash character: # ,to the line listing the cd as a repo, save the new file then run: sudo apt-get update ,and it should be smooth07:56
ActionParsnippksadiq: worth a try07:57
chipminkno monitor or screen declared07:58
ActionParsnipCyber_Beast: at it to the left of the line, the package system will ignore it and if needed you can re-add it07:58

rautamiekkaWhat solution should I use to allow multiple people to remotely login to an Ubuntu machine and use its programs, like in Window$ 7 via Remote Desktop after telling the OS to permit that ?09:05
sosaitedjg_1979: At least if you restart your computer after that, before installing it back first.09:05
dfcnvtcan you tell me what is wrong with this config? otherwise i'd be appreciated if this file is edited manually.09:05
jg_1979sosaited: but09:05
jg_1979sosaited: when you re-imnstall it doen not removes...09:05
sosaitedjg_1979: so a reinstall is better, rather than complete removal (which removes the config filkes09:05
jg_1979sosaited: ah so yes. if it is not removes the config files i will tryit...09:06
sosaitedjg_1979: Reinstall is, uninstall, and then install again. Won't affect ubuntu-desktop09:06
MrsBrautamiekka: x11 forwarding or vnc are probably easiest but if its across the internet it will be slow for either of them. You could use simple ssh if theyre happy with cli09:07
jg_1979sosaited: i just need to ask something else. i use gnome. but i don't use the panels. so i can not use also features like alt+f2 . is there any point for me to use gnome ?09:07
sosaitedjg_1979: For future reference, never uninstall anything that says it HAS to remove ""ubuntu-desktop" too. OR if you do want to take the risk, don't restart your computer BEFORe you install "ubuntu-desktop" back again. I once did it, and I couldn't boot into my system. Had to recover by shrooting09:08
rautamiekkaMrsB: It must be similar to Remote Desktop. It will be used across Net but that's not problem.09:08
Guest49093MrsB, have you tried teamviewer09:08
jg_1979sosaited: im not going to try to re-install system monitor...09:09
sosaitedjg_1979: gnome is not JUST about the panels and shortcuts. A lot other programs are dependent/made for gnome.09:09
jg_1979sosaited: so it is better for me to use fluxbox ...09:09
MrsBrautamiekka: if some of them are going to be windows or mac users then its probably best to stick with vnc, if theyre linux users then x11forwarding or vnc. There is a better one called nx (freenx) but I have never used it so can't report how much better/more difficult it is.09:10
MrsBGuest49093: nope, what is it?09:10
sosaitedjg_1979: No don't be that cautious. Reinstall will be fine. I did it first on my system just now to confirm09:10
rautamiekkaMrsB: Think most users, like me, would be Win users. I'll see about the NX. Ty, will report back later.09:11
Guest49093MrsB, works like vnc??? google it09:11
jg_1979sosaited:  no i will not try it. im waiting for rematsreys to backup my system. after that i can try to re-istall.09:11
jg_1979sosaited: remastersys new version...09:11
sosaitedjg_1979: Fluxbox is just a Window Manager. Gnome is a desktop environment09:12
jg_1979sosaited: anyway i did not had understand the differences desktop manager and window manager yet09:12
MrsBrautamiekka: you could also use virtual machines, using virtualbox you can enable vrdp whch uses the rdp protocol underneath the os. Its an option.09:12
rautamiekkaMrsB: How would that differ from using NX for multi-user concurrent sessions ?09:13
rautamiekkaAnd are you talking about installing Win or Linux into VirtualBox ?09:14
=== APERSON is now known as aperson
MrsBrautamiekka: it would probably use more resources on the host. The vrdp is part of virtualbox so you can install any OS on top of it. You can manage the VM's remotely, starting, stopping etc09:15
MrsBrautamiekka: Im not sure how secure it would be to open it to the internet is the only thing, I would think you could set a login tho. I'll let you research it ;)09:16

Linuxsapienmaybe can find something onthe software center09:47

chidtake a look at this Linuxsapien http://www.webupd8.org/2010/05/finally-easy-way-to-customize-notify.html09:48

Linuxsapienthanks you chid  :)09:48
SmokeyDhey everyone, the compiz config settings manager shows 9 available mouse buttons I can select for the mouse actions for the different effects. But how do I know which button is which?09:48
chidDjAngo23: I'm not sure if there's a simple way (off the top of my head) to remove the encryption, but the 'obvious' way is to make a backup and repartition the home drive09:48
chidactually, that assumes that your home drive is a different partition09:49
chidsorry, I've never partition encryption on linux, but you'll probably need to somehow find out how your encryption is configured09:49
chidoh Linuxsapien, the tutorial uses notify-send09:50

=== Ayrton` is now known as Ayrton
SmokeyDOk, I figured out that with xev I can see which mouse buttons are pressed. It turns out that I have buttons 1-5,8,9,10 and 13. So buttons 6,7,11 and 12 aren't present. But compiz only shows Buttons 1-9. And there also buttons 6 and 7 seem to not be present. Any clues how I can make compiz add buttons 10 and 13?09:59

ectospasmKrishnandu: for troubleshooting though, run it from the terminal so you can see standard output10:42
chidwhere they type any key and it closes?10:42
kazagistar(that is exactly what getchar() does?)10:43
ectospasmKrishnandu: sounds like you need it to block waiting for input10:43
chidok, so if you want that, http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-unix-pause-command.html10:43

chidyeah, I can't figure out the parameters of gnome-terminal10:49
Stavrosectospasm: it does react, but i'm not sure if it's reacting to the left-click10:49

KrishnanduHey guys this is not directly related ubuntu, but what are my scopes in GUI programming?? I mean in Windows we use Visual Studio(VB / C#), what should I learn in Linux??11:36
icarus-cKrishnandu, gtk+ , qt, wxwidget.... etc11:38
nikkonKrishnandu, in world of open source11:38
icarus-cKrishnandu, and for the language, C, C++, python, ruby, perl, java ..... many11:39
nikkononly in BSD port colleciton of application is more than 25 00011:39
Krishnanduicarus-c, gtk+ for GNOME, qt for KDE right??11:39
nikkonjust imagine that u cant modify src of all those stuff and play with it11:39
icarus-cKrishnandu, not exactly.  but GNOME uses gtk+,  and KDE uses Qt11:39
icarus-cKrishnandu, but doesn't mean that you can't build/use Qt apps on GNOME or  Gtk+ apps on KDE11:40
Krishnanduokies...looks like thrilling...so what should I choose?? Anyone of them??11:40
KrishnanduI'd like to use C11:40
Krishnanduwhich is better for n00b?? qt ot gtk+??11:40
DraccoHello folks. I have a question. I set up samba server on xubuntu and added a printer to share. Sadly, I have to type "sudo service smbd restart" each time I log in. Can I automate it somehow? If it was for me I wouldn't see a problem, but this is pc in a company I work for and they don't really like non-automated stuff.11:41
icarus-cKrishnandu, Gtk+ is written in C11:41
kazagistarKrishnandu: Qt, it is far better documented and object oriented11:41
greemor\join#111111:41
icarus-cKrishnandu, Qt written in C++ and it doesn't officially support C11:41
Krishnanduicarus-c, hmm....can't decide which one to use11:42
icarus-cgtk+ is object oriented too :(11:42
icarus-cKrishnandu, coin flips11:42
icarus-cKrishnandu, or think about the license11:42
Krishnanduicarus-c, No idea about license...I'm starting this 1st time....u suggest :P11:43
KrishnanduI'm comfortable in both C, C++ and Java...but don't know ruby, perl, but I learnt Python from online documentation11:43
icarus-cLGPL for gtk+ ,  Qt dual licensed - commercial & LGPL for open source11:43
icarus-cKrishnandu, that means if you want to use Qt to write closed source software, you have to buy a license from nokia11:44
icarus-cand i've heard it is expensive11:44
icarus-ccorrect me if i'm wrong11:44
Krishnanduyou mean if I don't provide the source code if I use qt, i need to buy the license??11:44
icarus-cKrishnandu, iirc yes11:45
bursihidoi am getting this error when i m trying to run vmware (vmware-modconfig:17381): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0.011:45
icarus-cKrishnandu, i'm not sure. check out qt licensing doc11:45
bursihidoi also tried recomplie vmware modules11:45
Krishnanduicarus-c, ok, so which is easier?? qt or gtk+?? Or wxwidgets??11:45
icarus-cKrishnandu, http://qt.nokia.com/products/licensing/11:45
magentaryou can use the lgpl version for commercial products too11:46
Krishnanduhmm11:46
magentarthey changed from gpl to lgpl when nokia overtook trolltech11:46
icarus-cKrishnandu, i'm not knowledgeable enough to answer that. and i haven't use wxwidget at all.  but from my experience, both are good.  but if you do C,  gtk+ is probably the best option11:46
Its-me-againi am debating to install mint 10 or ubuntu maveric11:46
magentarcommercial version is only for support11:46
Fuh-zzthe only reason I knew of to install mint was the nonfree candy11:47
Fuh-zzyou have the option to do so in Ubuntu 10.10 now11:47
icarus-cIts-me-again, simple, you ask here you install ubuntu,  you ask in #linuxmint,  you install mint11:47
Krishnanduok.....so the thing I should look at docs and support?? qt or gtk+?? Which has better docs to learn for a complete n00b knowing C, C++, Java etc. and irc and other support if I stuck??11:47
Krishnanduicarus-c, magentar ^^11:48
icarus-cbetween, i think i've heard that mint is going debian instead11:48
magentarQT works better for crossplatform apps and has a richer feature set11:48
magentargtk+ is more straight forward perhaps, simpler, fits best in GNOME11:48
icarus-cKrishnandu, both are equally fine in my opinion. but some say Qt is better documented, and sweeter for cross-platform dev11:48
Krishnanduokz...then let's start with qt...11:49

chidI forget what it is12:00
hariomEven if I write an email it gets logged in .bash_history12:00
chidyou can just set the size to 012:01
chiddon't know what the param is, maybe MAX_SIZE or something12:01
gccsterchid, theres no such option12:01
Bruce_WayneWhile installing "BURG" i'm getting this screen... http://img264.imageshack.us/img264/2328/screenshotr.jpg  what should I do?12:01
chidwhy do you send emails from bash12:01
srauehariom add a "space" before the first command you write12:01
chidexport HISTSIZE=012:02
chidadd that to your .bashrc12:02

bazhangBruce_Wayne, using burg from where? repos?12:03
c0nv1cthariom, http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/SECURITY_Bash_History_Functions12:03
chidit's not an option12:03
chidit's a program12:03
c0nv1cthariom, that may be of use to you, but sraue is correct, you can prepend a space to your command and it will skip the shell history12:03
chidc0nv1ct: I think he wants to disable all of them12:03
chidso histsize is the easiest way12:03
Bruce_Waynebazhang: Yes, from repos.12:04
icarus-chariom, you may export HISTFILE=0 or HISTFILE=/dev/null in bashrc   .  see man bash12:04
bazhangBruce_Wayne, there is no 'burg' in the repos12:04
Bruce_WayneI added ppa12:04
chidgccster: It's in System->Administration->StartUp Disk Creator12:04
chidmaybe you have to find it in the repos and instlal it first12:04
bazhangBruce_Wayne, perhaps you mean an unsupported 3rd party PPA12:04
bazhangBruce_Wayne, in which case, you should contact the PPA maintainer as that has nothing to do with Ubuntu12:05
hariomicarus-c, chid, c0nv1ct: ok. Looking at that. But isn't it possible that commands I type on command line only gets logged. Not the other text I write in text files etc.12:05
Bruce_Waynebazhang: I tried to follow this... http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/06/get-animated-themed-icon-only-grub-menu-using-burg-now-simple-to-use/12:05

chidare you sending emails in terminal?12:08

Bruce_Waynepale: Do you know how to install "BURG"... cause I have to enter one command... at this screen.. http://img264.imageshack.us/img264/2328/screenshotr.jpg12:40
Dr_Williscryptk:   For my laptop. I had to use the monitors  tool in the system menu to set them up. I dont recall having to select which one was primary/secondary.12:40
Bruce_Wayneand I've been trying to find a solution what to enter there.12:40
Dr_WillisBruce_Wayne:  theres a 'how to install burg' wiki/guides. and theres a 'burg' helper tool that can install and confifgure burg at the omgubuntu or webupd8 web site i saw last week12:40
cryptkyes, I was able to use that to have them not be mirrored, but it won't let me change the primary screen... it moved my panels, conky, everything to the left one, but I need it to all be on the right one12:40
Dr_WillisBruce_Wayne:  the burg helper tool seemed to work very well.12:41
cryptkDr_Willis, so I have a working side by side setup, just the wrong one is primary12:41
SeMeKhBanshee's DBUS (MPRIS) seems broken (it doesn't send SongName+Artist+Album name, the rest is fine) any idea?12:41
Dr_Williscryptk:  for my nvidia cards i have to use the nvuidia control panel. :) so i cant even see what the settings are in system -> pref-> monitors12:42
cryptkDr_Willis, yep, and that is how I did it on my home computer, but my work laptop has dual screens now (well 3, but at work on the docking station I leave the laptop closed)12:43
cryptkhrm... guess I could just re-arrange my desk so i can use the left one as primary... hold one...12:43
Dr_Williscryptk:  could be the docking station is causing some default changes.. ive not used one of those.12:44
Dr_WillisBruce_Wayne:  http://www.webupd8.org/2010/11/burg-manager-10-released-with-option-to.html12:45
cryptkDr_Willis, it isn't that the primary screen changed, I just now added the second screen, wanted to use the right screen as the primary (because of how my desk was arranged, it made more sense)12:46

petangamerpro2000: tell me more mabout13:30
ShinkaI'm using Audacious, by mistake I removed the upper menu (with File, View, et cetera) and I can't get it back ! I even tried reinstalling but to no avail.13:30
gamerpro2000petan: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg/+bug/67411213:30
hariomllutz: but I still get error13:30
llutzhariom: isn't it " APT::Immediate-Confifure "false" "13:30
gamerpro2000petan: There is extensive notes in there13:30
llutzConfigure*13:31
petangamerpro2000: try proprietary driver13:31
gamerpro2000Already did13:31
gamerpro2000Had more problems13:31
gamerpro2000Screens would randomly dire upon logout13:31
gamerpro2000*die13:31
petangamerpro2000: seame problems?13:31
gamerpro2000Not the same13:31
gamerpro2000just more problems13:31
FloodBot3gamerpro2000: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.13:31
gamerpro2000Had more problems with the proprietary driver than I did with the radeon driver13:32
petangamerpro2000: all machines have same gc13:32
gamerpro2000Correct13:32
gamerpro2000I have 50 of them13:32
gamerpro2000or more.  I lose count.13:33
gamerpro2000I didn't build them.  The previous network administrator built these machines.  I simply am taking over in day-to-day operations13:33
petangamerpro2000: does it die after login13:34
gamerpro2000petan: with which driver?13:34
petangamerpro2000: you said it happens with both of them13:34
petangamerpro2000: I mean if it die only after you login to session13:34
gamerpro2000Startup fails with the radeon driver causing the segmentation fault.13:34
gamerpro2000Like, powering on and initializing the displays.  However, the fglrx driver, machines would go to log out and the screen would go black.  The screen would stay powered, but it wouldn't log out gracefully, forcing us to reboot the entire machine.13:35
gamerpro2000Among other weird bugs, like freezing the whole machine upon logout and giving a "SOFT_LOCKUP" error13:36
petangamerpro2000: you have configuration for fglrx but you load radeon13:36
gamerpro2000petan: What do you mean I have configuration for fglrx?13:36
gamerpro2000Where are you seeing this?13:36
petangamepro2000: that is proprietary driver, in xorg.conf13:36
petangamepro2000: config is generated by autoconfig13:37
petangamepro2000: I would purge fglrx and radeon out and make new installation of driver13:37
gamerpro2000petan: I load "radeon" and "glx"13:37
hariomllutz: I have tried this: $sudo apt-get -o APT::Get::Immediate-Configure="false" dist-upgrade13:37
gamerpro2000Where are you seeing a propreitary driver being loaded?  Can you give me a line?13:37
coz_For 7000 to HD4xxx series cards, you can use the open source "radeon" driver. HD2xxx and later series cards are also supported by the proprietary "fglrx" driver.13:37
hariombut I still get errors. No effect observed.13:38
petangamepro2000: I see, but you have previously fglrx installed, they should not be installed both they conflict13:38
llutzhariom: try       -o APT::Immediate-Configure="false"13:38
gamerpro2000petan: They are not.  I used the uninstall script included with the driver package to remove it.  Where are you seeing this?  I need a line on the pastebin's.13:38
bastardchild1982anybody know how to take off the extra stuff in the grub. i have ubuntu, and mint on here13:38
petangamerpro2000: not loaded but xorg.conf was generated by ait-config13:38
llutzhariom: afaik "Immediate-Configure" is an own group like GET13:38
AndriaBonjjour13:39
gamerpro2000petan: Those are just identifiers.  I just left them saying "aticonfig-0 whatever"13:39
hariomllutz: Still no effect observed and get same error13:39
gamerpro2000petan: They don't have any bearing on the drivers13:39
petangamerpro2000: that mean you previously installed fglrx then this driver keep a lot of other binaries even if you switch it to radeon13:39
cryptkDr_Willis, I got it! I made a small bash script, has an if statement checking the output of xrandr, if it says that the monitor is conencted then it runs xrandr --output HDMI1 --primary13:40
llutzhariom: no idea then, sorry13:40
bastardchild1982grub help...13:40
hariomllutz: Actually by mistake I deleted /var/lib/dpkg directory13:40
cryptkput the same thing in /etc/gdm/Init/Default as well13:40
hariomand from then onwards getting this error. I have created dpkg/ status and updates/13:40
hariombut getting same error13:41
bastardchild1982i want to delete the safemode stuff in my grub13:41
gamerpro2000petan: I did previously have fglrx installed, but as I said I used the uninstall script included with the .deb that ATI provided to remove all traces of it.  Then, to be sure, I ran sudo apt-get --purge remove fglrx13:41
cryptkthing is, with it just in the /etc/gdm script it should stay that way, unless something changes it... but upon login it would go back wrong again...13:41
gamerpro2000which didn't do anything, but I wanted to be sure nothing was left13:41
aim__народ13:41
c0nv1ctbastardchild1982, GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_RECOVERY="true"  in your /etc/default/grub13:41
aim__ой, тут все на басурманском..13:41
oshinhi, is it bad that fdisk -l show the end of another partition == start of another?13:41
c0nv1ctbastardchild1982, then update-grub213:41
gamerpro2000aim__ switch to russian13:41
cryptktried putting it in a ~/.xprofile, and it would run the code (I checked by having it touch a file) but something would set it back wrong again afterwards13:41
petangamepro2000: what happen if you install fglrx and try to perform sudo aticonfig --initial13:42
edzi have a question im a newbie at this but under system>preferences>appearance>visual effects i want to choose normal and it works but i have to redo it everytime ???13:42

oshin/dev/sda2            6079       12158    48828416   83  Linux13:42
cryptkhad to make the bash script and set it in startup applications to get it to be reapplied again AFTER whatever is changing it back13:42

oshin /dev/sda2            6079       12158    48828416   83  Linux13:42
gamerpro2000petan: one moment.  It shouldn't do anything13:42
oshin6079 == 6079, is that bad?13:42
gamerpro2000petan: aticonfig: command not found13:42
c0nv1ctbastardchild1982, it is a text file, open it as root with your favorite editor, add the line i mentioned to it and run `sudo update-grub2`13:43
petangamerpro2000: hm, what if you install it and try it then, is it same segmentation fault13:43
cryptkanyone know what would be overriding my ~/.xprofile?13:44

edzyes13:45
edzsorry for posting again and again didnt think it was going through13:46
gamerpro2000petan: The segmentation fault started occurring when I switched to the radeon driver.  Once I removed the fglrx driver, I switched the line for loading fglrx to loading radeon.  Then I made a few changes to kdmrc and such to get the multiseat working and that's when startup began having issues.13:46
edzand it worked13:46
edzbut13:46
edzit resets to none automatically13:46
edz?13:46
c0nv1ctbastardchild1982, GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_RECOVERY="true"  <- add that as a new line at the end13:46
petangamerpro2000: can you undo the changes to kdmrc13:46
oshinno idea then.13:46
gamerpro2000petan: I already tried it.  No avail.13:46
edzok thank you13:47
petangamerpro2000: switch to fglrx13:47
petangamerpro2000: then do13:47
edzalso, which is more stablme with ubuntu 10.10, ATI graphics or Nvidia?13:47
petangamerpro2000: sudo aticonfig --initial13:47
gamerpro2000edz: nvidia13:47
doltoxHi, i'm looking for some support with ubuntu, is there the right place ?13:47
bastardchild1982it won't let me type in there13:47
petangamerpro2000: it will generate xorg.conf13:47
miguel000What can I do, to make my ubuntu also boot when I set AHCI mode (for my sata drive in the bios). Because it freezes during startup now. Only works in IDE mode.13:47
oshinnvidia is a bit buggy here.. but i doubt that ati is better.13:47
miguel000anoyone any ideas?13:48
miguel000or experiencing same problems?13:48
edzok gamerpro thanks i have ATI which explains the lag in VLC i suppose and playback in general how can i be sure i have the latest drivers or is there a way i can know which exact settings to change in ATI catalyst?13:48

oshinmay that thread useful? using gconftool-213:48
c0nv1ctbastardchild1982, you must be doing something wrong then.  open a terminal and type `sudoedit /etc/default/grub`  and edit the file that way13:49
