coreireWow, this system is determined not to let me install ubuntu. When the picture of they keyboard+man is on the screen my keyboard is not active. It doesn't become active until after it disappears00:01
needlezgoltoof: Theres a reason for it... so f5 isn't a choice. I made a script to change my mac address and get the ip address but would like the page to refresh automatically after that00:01
avashi1how do i stop aptitude from running00:02
needlezscript so far is this http://pastie.org/151660900:02
ActionParsnipchaos2358: mkdir ~/canon;cd ~/canon;wget http://files.canon-europe.com/files/soft37267/software/mp250_debian_driver_pack.tar; tar xvf ./mp250_debian_driver_pack.tar; tar zxvf ./cnijfilter-mp250series-3.20-1-i386-deb.tar.gz; cd cnijfilter-mp250series-3.20-1-i386-deb/packages;  sudo dpkg -i ./*.deb00:04
goltoofneedlez: not sure, but if it's practical you could script the page to do it for you, ie, meta refresh00:04
DasEiavashi1: not to recommended, ctrl-c in terminal00:04
chaos2358ActionParsnip, HUH?00:04
ActionParsnipchaos2358: run that command and it will install the printer driver00:05
ActionParsnipchaos2358: then run:00:05
avashi1thanks DasEi00:05
coreireCan I modify the 10.10 iso image so that it will automatically use nomodeset when it boots?00:06
avashi1I just downloaded a Packet tracer (cisco application) for ubuntu.. its a .bin file but How do i install it00:06
chaos2358ActionParsnip,  ok i was confused because it was such a long command. but it is installing now00:06
Dr_Willis coreire  i did by putting it on a usb flash driv4e and editing the syslinux configs00:06
=== Koopa516 is now known as Pythonic|Away
chaos2358ActionParsnip,  ok that is done now run what?00:06
ActionParsnipchaos2358: rm -r ~/canon; mkdir ~/canon; cd ~/canon;  wget http://files.canon-europe.com/files/soft40252/software/mp250%20scanner%20driver%201.60.tar; tar xvf ./mp250\ scanner\ driver\ 1.60.tar; tar zxvf ./scangearmp-mp250series-1.60-1-deb.tar.gz; cd scangearmp-mp250series-1.60-1-deb/packages/; sudo dpkg -i ./*.deb00:07
coreireDr_Willis: Where are they located? And what must I add?00:07
ActionParsnipchaos2358: sure is but if you read it, it makes sense00:07
ezyhello folks...if I want a process (e.g vlc player) to use less cpu how do I go about it00:07
Dr_Williscoreire:  under syslinux config dirs. in one of the config files. You just have to look for it00:08
GanymedeHello. I was playing some full-screen 3D games and after quitting from them, keyboard presses no longer repeat (e.g. if I hold onto A, it only prints one A and does not print any more), which is different from the previous behavior. How can I restore previous behavior? (Playing with repeat options under System -> Preferences -> Keyboard does not fix the issue).00:08
chaos2358ActionParsnip, ok gotcha and it is done.00:08
wanderingiwhat will rmdir -f do?00:08
chaos2358ActionParsnip, now what?00:08

ActionParsnipchaos2358: try the scanner and try printing00:09
GanymedeNVM, Asked too soon. Answer: xset r rate 30000:09
aeon-ltdezy: you can't force a app to use less cpu, besides tinkering with its prefs, but ultimately what the devs put in uses the cpu it needs; so idealy a well written application is already using its minimum required cpu00:09
ActionParsnipchaos2358: or delete the printer then reattatch it, it should pick it up00:10
chaos2358ActionParsnip,  ok gimmie one sec and i will test00:10
goltoofif i want to wipe clean and format my usb drive to ext3 do i just:  mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda1   ?00:10

chaos2358ActionParsnip,  YOU ARE A GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!00:11
ezyaeon-ltd, would changing the priority of the process help in achieving my goals ?00:11
ActionParsnipgoltoof: yes, make sure it's ext3 though, and make sure the partition isn't mounted or in use00:11
ActionParsnipchaos2358: Canon support is not bad but can REALLY led itself to long command installs like that :)00:11
goltoofActionParsnip:  it isn't ext3 currently it's ntfs.. i want to make it ext3 ... nothing else i should do first.  the drive is unmounted and g2g00:11
aeon-ltdezy: not really unless it was maxing out your cpu or something else is00:11

ezyaeon-ltd, its actually maxing it out...the problem has to do with the heating of my laptop to tempratures of 90+ whenever I stream clips on youtube or view movies through vlc player00:13
DasEiavashi1: synaptics open in parallel ?00:13

aeon-ltdezy: then thats the real problem, ask that question to this channel with more details00:13
ezyaeon-ltd, everytime the laptop hits 2100 Mhz of cpu usage the temprature heats up and I have narrowed it down to those activities that lead to a higher cpu frequency00:14

FaffelHey guys - I'm new to using Ubuntu and I was just wondering if anyone else has encountered the inability to connect to the Steam Network using Wine00:16
ActionParsnipezy: its a liitle known file which can reduce cpu usage in flash00:16
butterflynow is 08:1600:16
FaffelIt installs fine, updates etc but it won't connect to the network00:16
lolcat_Can anyone recommend a ligthweight desktop system? Small download, and low on ram preferably00:16
gunndawgFaffel: I have no issues00:16
FaffelUsing Maverick?00:17
FaffelI first did it using PlayOnLinux, but apparently that's bugged on 64-bit MAverick and loads a 32-bit wine00:17
gunndawgFaffel: yes00:17
chaos2358ActionParsnip, ok you have helped me alot but now i must ask one more thing00:17
FaffelWhich causes some bugs, but I'm just using straight Wine now00:17
FaffelAnd it still won't connect00:17
ActionParsnipezy: also if you add: http://pastie.org/1516639    to /etc/X11/xorg.conf  it can help too00:17
ezyActionParsnip, could there be similar commands for vlc player and virtual box ?00:17
gunndawgFaffel: I am using 32-bit 10.10 and Steam works perfectly00:17

ActionParsnipezy: virtualbox is VERY CPU intensive00:18
butterflywhat's time?00:18
gunndawgFaffel: yes could be some 64-bit incompatibility issues00:18
chaos2358ActionParsnip, do i have to download something in particular in order to scan documents to the computer? i insert and press the scan button on my printer and it doesnt scan to the computer00:18

ezyActionParsnip, any way of tinkering with that ? :-)00:19
butterflyhello,who can tell me the time?00:19
ubottuInformation about using and setting your computer's clock on Ubuntu can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuTime - See https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/NTP.html for information on usage of the Network Time Protocol (NTP)00:19
gunndawgFaffel: I dont believe so, that would be steams framework, and I dont think there is any way to get access to that, i could be wrong though, but it sounds unlikely00:19
rbnswartzlolcat_: try xfce or lxde (xubuntu or lubuntu)00:19
butterflywhat' time?00:19
FaffelHm okay00:19
ActionParsnipezy: you can set a higher nice value which will make the virtualbox process get less CPU time but the guest will run slower00:19

needleznoname1000: please connect to internet thru " hardwire" LAN cable00:38
Jordan_Unoname1000: The CD that you use to install Ubuntu 10.04. Since you can use the system from the CD (use firefox, try some screensavers, etc) it's called a "Live" CD as well as being an install CD.00:38
avashi1Thanks ActionParsnip. I will stick to 10.04 since everything is working fine for now :)00:38
VonorActionParsnip, are you on 10.10? if yes, could you please pastebin your /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf for me?00:38

Vonordoes anyone know if ubuntu has applied patches to alsa in the default distro kernel? (especially the hda-intel driver) I ask, because a fix for an alsa problem on my motherboard apparently works for an ubuntu user but doesn't work for me (I'm on gentoo and the fix is adding a probe_mask option to alsa-base)00:43

ActionParsnipVonor: you can add the probe options in /etc/modprobe/alsa-base.conf   and it will set the option00:45
BlueBomber7I have two panels on top, and on reboot they appear in backwards order.  The one that should be on top is on bottom.00:45

VonorActionParsnip, i know. that wasn't my question, though. that option apparently fixes the issue for an ubuntu user (who has reported that fix on the xbmc forum entry regarding this motherboard) but it doesn't fix it for me (and I'm not using ubuntu) hence I wonder if there might be ubuntu specific patches to the kernel regarding asla/hda-intel which aren't in vanilla00:47

histodiscord_: the only problem is if you have multiple tabs open in gnome-terminal alt+number will switch tabs in gnome-terminal00:47

VonorActionParsnip, "is ubuntu using patches on asla/hda-intel that are not in vanilla" is a question that i should not ask in #ubuntu because i don't use ubuntu? *winks*00:48
BlueBomber7Speaking of panels, ActionParsnip and Jayro, I can't seem to have multiple panels on the same side that autohide.  Should we be able to accomplish this?00:49

ActionParsnipXavier1001: use ALT+F2 and run: firefox00:50

BlueBomber7bubbles|: It doesn't look like something necessarily wrong.  It just looks like a text-mode dropdown menu is all.  Maybe your default login script launches some app?00:59

abstrakthisto, Dr_Willis but I did run sudo update-grub from my already configured system01:18

Dr_Willisabstrakt:  you want to keep  both disrtos?01:18
abstraktDr_Willis, I don't care... I only need to keep the one I already have configured01:19
abstraktDr_Willis, the other one doesn't matter at this point, I just have two system drives so that when the next release comes out I can do a test install on that drive and migrate slowly and still have my original system in case of catastrophic failure, etc01:19
ActionParsnipnicofs: hmm, then you need to find out how to make it not used01:19
Dr_Willisabstrakt:  then delete the partions for the one you dont want. and rerun update-grub01:19

Dr_Willisabstrakt:  original or not.. is not the issue.. its showing all the installed systems as its designed to.01:22
abstraktnot in my mind01:22
abstraktit should show the system that I ran update-grub from first01:22
Dr_Willisexpand your mind then.01:22
Dr_Willisit puts them in the hd order as far as i know.01:22
abstraktlike if I have install A and install B, if I run update-grub from install A then the grub menu should have A as the default01:22
Dr_Willissda first, sdb next and so on. then non linux afterwards01:23

abstraktyet the /dev/sda7 comes out first01:23
Dr_Willisit can tell what order you installed them01:23
Dr_Willisif you run update-grub with a external usb hd plugged in - with linux on that usb.. it will also get added. :) which is confuseing01:23

FaffelThe only things I've installed are Steam and Quakelive, and I copied over and then deleted TF2 files for Steam02:15
FaffelBut the "file system" in Nautilus is saying it has 6.6GB free02:15
FaffelWhen I check my filesystem in DUA, it says it's got 171GB free02:15

matt444now instead of fumbling around on OSX trying to get node.s and other programming stuff installed and working, just works on this ubuntu box.  i'm in love.02:15
FaffelI should have well over 6.6GB free on my 20gb partition02:15
RitleeFaffel, that itself is odd02:15

RitleeFaffel OH Wubi...02:17
KM0201ugh... wubi02:17
FaffelSo I told wubi to set a 20GB partition02:17
FaffelSo DUA is saying my filesystem has 171GB free02:17
FaffelNautilus says File System has 6.6GB free02:17
FaffelAnd in reality it should have around 13GB free02:17
RitleeFaffel, I tried wubi for about 10 minutes didn't much care for it... it does not make it's own partition not really sure how it works02:17

KM0201jrib: unfortunately i've saw more "epic fail" w/ Wubi, than successes.02:18
FaffelI'm probably not using the propery terminology either02:19
FaffelWhen I say "File System" I mean the File System drive/folder in Nautilus02:19
jk_Faffel, wubi creates a window folder that includes a file to serve as ubuntu's drive. It can be up to 30 GB but no larger.02:19

FaffelI see, jk_02:19
badpenguin86I installed Kubuntu, and not my plymouth theme is kubuntu and will not change back. help?02:19
RitleeFaffel, go ahead uninstall wubi and using the disk manager with windows, you can resize your Primary partition and make a 20GB partition and install ubuntu properly you should enjoy it that way02:19
FaffelRitlee I don't have any blank DVDs02:19
jk_Faffel, the discrepancy may be due to Ubuntu's "trash" folder, similar to the Windows recycle bin.02:19
FaffelNah I cleared that out jk02:20

greg3000Hi,  working on NFS-root with a local  /boot -- followed the instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/OnNFSDriveWithLocalBoot02:25
greg3000But ran into the bug here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/maverick/+source/mountall/+bug/53713302:25
greg3000Did anyone solve booting from local /boot and mounting / over NFS using Ubuntu 10.10 ?02:25
munjrib, hmm same thing02:25
FaffelRitlee: Uninstall Wubi from Win7 using insructions from the Ubuntu wiki02:25
RitleeFaffel, np02:25
FaffelMake sure my partitions are set up correctly02:25
FaffelCreate partition of my choice in size02:26
FaffelBoot using my USB Start "disc"02:26
FaffelAnd install the Ubuntu iso to that02:26

KM0201before you go any further, back up important stuff... you seem tobe flying at the seat of your pants w/ this...02:27
Geyo-chanum, does anyone know how to install windows games with wine?02:27
abstraktactually I really don't care tbh02:27
abstraktGeyo-chan, yeah, go buy windows02:27
jribmun: this is in your user's crontab?02:27
KM0201abstrakt: does it matter?.. if you're breaking the rules, you're breaking the rules02:27
munjrib, no, it's sudo02:27
Geyo-chanmeh windows sucks though02:27
jribmun: why?02:27
RitleeFaffel, just about... uninstall according to ubuntu... resize primary partition using window's disk manager, to a size you want to use, and yes then boot off of the usb and install02:27
jribmun: and what do you mean by "sudo"?  sudo isn't a user02:27
Ritleebrb wife is home02:27
FaffelKM0201: There's nothing important for me to back up02:28
FaffelI just did a full format last week02:28

UgonsWill do02:30
greg3000Let me rephrase, do we have any NFS or NFSROOT people here?02:30

jribmun: wfm.  What's your script?02:32
Jordan_UDarke: What wireless chipset?02:32
KM0201mikebot: if neither worked, its likely an issue w/ your thumbdrive... some of them just don't work well for booting live USB's.02:32
DarkeSorry, chipset? All I know is I'm using Dlink wireless router. Define chipset though and I'll probably find it.02:32
speedhog_KM0201: yes02:32
munjrib, actually i just realised i need it in the root crontab because the command i run requires it.02:32
KM0201speedhog_: yes what?02:32
munjrib, let me paste you the script02:32
nit-witmikebot, heres a link to it http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/02:32
mikebotKM0201: OK, thank you... I'll try another one02:33
jribmun: so make it say "hello" and run it as your user02:33
munjrib, ok02:33
Jordan_UDarke: Is it an internal wireless card or USB? (If you have a choice between the two internal is usually the better one to use).02:33

jribmun: what are you running that requires root?02:35
craigbass1976is apt-get update going to do everything?  I'm ssh-ed into a box that I'm sure needs updating (I've done several at home since I was into it last, and my laptop has had several updates) but that command seems to run very fast for having to do that many updates.  I'm wondering if it only got lists of updateable packages or something02:35
Darkeyes. None.02:35
munjrib, it's revoco, which checks the battery of my mouse.02:35
DarkeIt won't even show any networks. It's completely done.02:35
DarkeBut I'll check again.02:35
munjrib, this script basically runs every 10mins, to check the battery of my wireless mouse.02:35
DarkeDon't want to keep restarting everytime I want to check something. It becomes a hassle.02:36
jribmun: you could setup revoco so that sudo does not require a password for the revoco command (that's what I do)02:36
Jordan_UDarke: Can you run "lspci | grep Network" and post the output? (if it's more than one line use http://paste.ubuntu.com )02:36
assassinhave a question does somebody of you know. if the backtrack tools also work within ubuntu ???  because backtrack don  t uses my wlan and i don t want to rebuy things02:36

Jordan_UDarke: I don't know how you would get the same info in Windows.02:38
munjrib, so do i create a group called wheel first?02:39

mrbluessbbIf nobody knows what my problem is please tell me so I can stop wasting my time.02:39
Brett29229Anyone here knowledgeable with permisisons of services..?02:39
jribmun: well you can just use "admin" (default group that can sudo in ubuntu), create a new group of your choice, or just specify your user directly (in this case replace "%wheel" with "username")02:39
craigbass1976When I log into said laptop (see my earlier question) I still get the message that there are X number of updates available and Y of them are security updates.02:39

Brett29229Due to an unfortunate typo, changed permissions of root of file system. Now i only have webmin access to the box. Trying to either fix the problem or fix the essentials to get ssh access again and attempt a remote install.02:41
Brett29229jrib: thanks02:41
jribBrett29229: you did it recursively?02:42
craigbass1976Brett29229, do you have physical access to the box?02:42
Brett29229jrib: yes02:42

Brett29229craigbass1976: no physical access, ~3hr drive02:42
craigbass1976Then jrib has the best advice probably02:42
Brett29229jrib: can i do anything to get ssh access again? to attempt a remote install?02:42
munjrib, ok. after updating sudoers, do i need to log out?02:43
jribBrett29229: I have no experience with webmin.  But what exactly did you execute?  You only say "chmod -R /." but don't mention the permission you actually applied02:43
Brett29229sorry, left out the #.. everything that got changed before i stopped the process is 74402:44
munjrib, so with that line, does that mean i don't need a password to run revoco even in the terminal?02:44
Brett29229jrib: ^^02:44
jribmun: that's right, you just run "sudo revoco blah" and you won't need a password.  You sholudn't need to log out02:44
munjrib, i see. great!02:45
munjrib, it's working now. thanks a lot02:45
jribmun: no problem02:45
munjrib, so do you use revoco to check your mouse's battery?02:45
jribmun: no but I have to reset the wheel mode sometimes02:45
munjrib, then how do you check the battery level?02:46
jribmun: the mouse has 3 lights on it :)02:46

munjrib, oh right. you recharge it everynight?02:48

greg3000NFSroot is always SUCH a time investment02:50
jribmun: logitech support is incredibly awesome.  I actually had a previous mouse, the middle click started making a funny noise, they sent me this more expensive one (because old one was discontinued).  Then I asked them to send me new mouse feet because they were worn out, and they sent me a new mouse.  So... I wouldn't worry about the battery.  As long as it lasts for a day, it's perfect for me02:50
greg3000things never work as expected02:51
greg3000as we see here, there are bugs in 10.04 and 10.1002:51

justinsanetSquar3d: i hear ya. same problem04:03
TSquar3djustinsane: and it only just happened after I updated the iSight firmware.04:03
pc_I did them but does not happen anything04:03
KM0201pc_: that is like 5yrs old... it probably doesn't even work anymore04:04
justinsanemaco: it's not listed04:04
sshcbc81: Yes, "Simple Scan" works! Thanks!!04:04
pc_really ? uhmmmm04:04
bc81sshc: glad to hear it :-)04:04
sacarlsongreenwax: it would have to do with how many files in the dir and how big they are,  if media has no files or less files then it would be faster to sync04:04
justinsanemaco: brb, restarting updates...04:04
macojustinsane: is this a totally fresh install or a "installed it earlier then installed updates" install?04:04
KM0201pc_: why don't you just use pidgin?.04:04
sshcbc81: I've tried other programs for a long frusterating period of time, but the result was either the top portion or a small vertical white line04:04
pc_it does not work04:05
LinuxGuy2009I'm reading up on adding an entry to /etc/fstab to automount my MyBookLive NAS drive and I noticed that the filesystem location at the start of the entry has two forward slashes as opposed to just one. Is there a logical reason for this? Do network locations require the double slashes?04:05
pc_I could not log to my previous accont04:05

sacarlsongreenwax: did you try move it back to /home after you moved it to /media?  it may have already synced,  when you first start the raid it has to copy ond disk to the other to start to make the mirror04:08

Eryn_1983_FLits like they arnt even there anymore..04:11
justinsane_maco: no, because it has worked in 10.10 before...04:11
bullgard4Loshki: I have done exactly this before. I could not detect any fault. Still GParted cannot move this partition.04:11
justinsane_maco: just recently stopped working...04:11
macojustinsane_: well thats "ew" ... try booting an older kernel?04:11
justinsane_maco; does it have something to do with pulseaudio?04:11
KM0201pc_: do you not see where it says .. "type in terminal..."04:12
macojustinsane_: pulseaudio runs on top of the drivers. if you have nothing in /proc/asound/cards, thats the driver or udev or something kernel-y screwing up04:12
justinsane_Maco: i've never booted an older kernel...04:12
macojustinsane_: hold shift during boot and use arrow keys to pick the 3rd entry instead of the first04:12
bc81bullgard4: you test drive for errors? touch /forcefsck04:12
justinsane_let me try that04:12
bc81bullgard4: then you reboot: shutdown now -r04:12
justinsane_maco: any disclaimers?S04:12
macojustinsane_: nope04:12
sacarlsongreenwax: oh and how many users do you have on that system?  maybe other users were reading and writing at the same time so that would slow it down, as media may not of had as much trafic04:12
justinsane_maco: k, brb. wish me godspeed.04:13

retro_I can ping the computer, but no SSH.04:13

KM0201kaushal: you got something wrong there in your source list for sure.06:34
[thor]datz: i got it to work with minimal knowledge of the OS. the routing application is pretty straight-forward. one side has output ( be it a physical input port, or an applications audio output ), and one has input ( physical output ports, or application inputs )06:34
Araneld'oh :| but I'm using the same system for 3 years (and changed 2 computers in the process), I can't reinstall everything from start, It would take ages :(06:34
[thor]datz: you draw a line from "Firefox out 1/2" to "Soundcard Output 1/2" and it routes that signal06:35

Us3r_Unfriendlywhy do you need 64 bit apps?06:45
Us3r_UnfriendlyAranel: ubuntu is great for having 32 bit programs in their repos...06:46
Aranelto use 6gig of ram, looks like PAE is an alternative to it but 64-bit is a better way to handle this I guess.06:46
Araneldoesn't it have the same for 64-bit?06:46
[thor]you don't need to uninstall to use PAE, i switched about 2 months after install06:46
Us3r_UnfriendlyAranel: i'd say use what the other suggested.06:46
Us3r_UnfriendlyAranel: that's what i'm going to do when i get some free time06:46

[thor]Us3r_Unfriendly: sorry, no /msg on this server06:47
Us3r_UnfriendlyAranel: personally i like linux in a 32 bit flavor, but that's me.  Some people want higher performance (which i have noticed -none-).06:48
Us3r_Unfriendly[thor]: guess i'll never know then06:49
Aranel[thor]: looks easy to do =) Would it perform the same as 64-bit or are there any disadvantages with PAE? (Virtual Address Extension is one of them, I don't know why I need it anyway)06:49
[thor]Us3r_Unfriendly: all i got was a message saying your incoming was blocked06:49
[thor]Aranel: i've not tried a 64bit system for any great length of time.06:50
Us3r_Unfriendly[thor]: well i can't ask you in here, never mind06:50
[thor]Us3r_Unfriendly: #thor-06:50
AranelUs3r_Unfriendly: well, Isn't it unneccesary to downgrade to 32-bit, when you already using 64-bit and It's okay?06:51
tsimpsonthere is technically some performance reduction with PAE, but in practice it's negligible06:51

ktwoi tried to connect via ubuntu file explorer via SSH, however when i copy a file it seems that the file is first copied to the local machine, can i force him to do all operation only on remote site without using the console (due to the gui ease of use)#07:13
Araneltripelbb: I guess (I'm not experienced at all) MySql, SQLite and their kind are more advanced and "low-level" choices, afaik they don't ship with a GUI, you install one. Kexi is much more Access-like, easy-to-use but not  awesome as MySql.07:13
tsimpsontripelbb: you can use SQLite for a simple no-configuration database, SQLite stores the database in a file and doesn't require a server to be running. there's MySQL and Postgres SQL for more advanced features, but they require some more configuration and have tighter security features07:13
bullgard4tripelbb: I could. But I won't. I suggest that you use the usual Ubuntu information means to get an idea about both programs. If you have done this (your homework) I will be glad to answer your specific questions.07:15

MikeChelenarunkumar413: all wysiwyg editors add some extra stuff, probably the more advanced editors like kompozer add less additional html11:22

ubottuleoncutz: To install a Java runtime on Ubuntu on 10.04 LTS and newer, see http://tinyurl.com/2ffg7cc -  For the Sun Java products and browser plugin, search for the sun-java6- packages in the !partner repository on Lucid (which must be enabled), or !multiverse repository on older releases.12:25
bazhangleoncutz, enable the partner repo and install from there12:25
pfarrellhi! I'm trying to make a debian package for a library I'm writing. dh_auto_build is acting a bit funny. is this the right place to ask questions?12:25

danny_sagaci:  I want my mount point to be /mnt/gaia  as for dev/sd, how do I find that out for windows computer?12:27
sagarchalisecan anyone tell me what package is that places > connecct to server ?12:28
leoncutzguys, i might sound very stupid here. how do i enable the partner in java?12:28
stresseddanny the output of blkid shows that there is no windows partition on your computer, therefore you can not mount one :(12:28

danny_stressed:  I can't mount a Windows share from a different computer?12:29
stressedah, if you are trying to mount a windows share, that is a totally different thing.12:29
nellimdanny_ you talking about smb at that point12:29
landingonwaterjust a note. when installing alongside vista, and one goes into advanced partitioning, there is no turning back to the install wizard for dual boot. one has to remove the usb, log into vista, shut down and start over. pretty weird.12:29
TopCatstressed: you getting my pm ?12:30
stressedthe easiest way, is to not touch fstab, but in nautilus (file manager) choose "connect to server" and from there is should be simple.12:30
danny_nellim:  yeah, but how to do it is still a mystery to me after many tries12:30
danny_I keep getting failed to retrieve share list from server12:31
landingonwatersince ubuntu can resize a partition, then why is it advised many places to create empty space on the disk using vista disktool ? or maybe thats all outdated information ?12:31

danielhow do i install a .tgz file12:33
randomus1rdaniel, extract by 'tar xvf filename', read the install file; it's usually source and needs a manual compile12:33
bazhangdaniel, what package12:33
danielits called tibia870.tgz from tibia.com12:34
danielit says its for linux12:34
nellimdaniel: tar -xvf the file12:34
nellimdaniel: then read the README file if there is one12:35
randomus1ror INSTALL12:35
randomus1rbut it is manual compiling, if they offer another package, it'd be easier12:35
randomus1rlike .deb or something12:35
