schnuffle1shawndrost: my advice: update your system if you're linux save or compile apache and create a package from the source otherwise. that way its easier to revert if you have problems00:00
Starminnchaos2358, Have you tried installing and running as sudo? (At least installing so everything gets where it needs to be)00:00

schnuffle1shawndrost: normally an update is painless, but sometimes you have to correct something00:01
Starminnchaos2358, :) Just making sure. Alright, well the only thing I'm left with is just reinstalling it. Just back up your Home folder and reinstall Ubuntu. May be killing a fly with a bazooka but at least it'll work. (Anybody else wanna chime in?)00:01

yayoj1luigiana: which version are you installing?00:05
rumpe1mike_miller, 404 means the current mirror you are using is not available00:05

bindiHey! I have a laptop, Toshiba Satellite Pro A100 (PSAACE), and running Ubuntu 10.10.

macohrmph did naming swap?01:08
macoariqs: sorry01:09
jribariqs: you very likely want unrar, not unrar-free01:09
KGjrib: Sorry, habit. But since then, GStreamer can't find any plugins but the core elements like fakesrc/sink. When I use gst-inspect, only 20 elements are listed. However, /usr/libs/gstreamer-0.10 is filled with all the plugin .so's that GStreamer can't find.01:09
ariqsnp, it's just I have unrar hitting on a different file in the archive as corrupt each time.01:09
macojrib: this seems backwards of how things normally get named. that is, the free one is plain, and the nonfree one is -nonfree01:09
GeekManits gnome but a funky version of it theres no way to use the gui to change settings for update manager01:09

g_0_0bindi, output from cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec ?01:14

juniourKM0201 WT ARE YOU TALKING ABT?01:50
KM0201juniour: did you not ask how to remove ubuntu 10.10?01:50
nicofsjrib, in the end, rootstock creates a tar. i can tell rootstock what shall be inside - but not with which rights... i assume that in most cases it's correct - but even un-taring can have an effect on ownership... so the best and most efficient way to sort out my problem would be to manually adjust what went wrong...01:50
ActionParsnipdigirak: how do you mean 'local'?01:50
juniourKM0201 how to remove that i wanna to use 10.04 thata y i waan to remove01:51
digirakActionParsnip: see its like this01:51
KM0201juniour: just install 10.04 over 10.10.01:51
jribnicofs: tar will preserve permissions by default and keep them intact when you extract as superuser by default (maybe pass --preserve-permissions during extract to be sure)01:51
digirakActionParsnip: i am trying to run cmakekde and it gives a permission error on usr/local/bin01:51
ruffleSActionParsnip, ok thanks. one last question. i guess i'll get it installed so what is the metapackage i should install? would it be linux-generic-pae? and also, does it include the ubuntu patches?01:51
juniourKM0201 last time i did the sam but it dident work01:52

frotzedjuniour: afaik you'll need to backup your necessary data and reformat/reinstall.  I could be wrong though.01:52
nicofsjrib, yes, but even so - the fact that i don't install but just extract is complex... numeric ownership and so on...01:52

nicofsjrib, but what if indeed rootstock creates them wrong...01:57
rwwsagaci: dapper = 6.06 = June 2006. LTS for server is 5 years, so June 2011.01:57
jribnicofs: I was under the impression you used rootstock to create the tar.gz from some install, is that not the case?01:58
frotzedjuniour: I believe there are several tuts online.  Basically your task is to boot to a live 10.04 CD, remove the 10.10 partition (might be able to use the gui) and then select that partition as the one in which you'd like to install 10.04.  GRUB should take care of itself.01:58
nicofsjrib, rootstock takes packages from the repositories and uses qemu to emulate a system where to install them (thats how i understand it) - enough room for mistakes01:59

SushiDudeFredo42, hi02:07
frotzeddjjonex: hello02:07
jribnicofs: well I don't know how to fetch the permission data in a tar.gz, but checking that would see if rootstock is to blame or not (I found no bugs to the effect).  Otherwise, try passing -p to tar and see if it makes a difference02:07

Tohuwfrotzed: That and restarting. I have no issues with this router on another ubuntu system, though (granted, it's using an atheros)02:09
TohuwActionParsnip: frotzed: now the STA shows up again, but trying to install either yields the message: InstallArchives() failed02:09
nicofsjrib, the thing is that "restarting" is really only my last resort... since getting this system running was quite some work... and since then i added lots of other things, drivers, firmware - somewhere in this process some ownerships have gone wrong - all i really need is the info, what should be owned by who...02:09

edbianrcmaehl, you should probably just follow this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=89527302:18
Tohuwfrotzed: I am absolutely certain it is not the fault of the router. There is something strange going on with the OS itself... the STA driver appears and disappears out of jockey, and trying to install the lph version of b43 driver, which is what it really should be using, doesn't work because the URL the deb pulls from is dead.02:18

Tohuwnot a cisco router issue.02:19
singularityyeah, by unviersal i mean everything inside technology02:19
jribnicofs: of course!  The better way is to get the permissions right from the start!  But asking here for the permissions of folders would just give you the same info you already have from your ubuntu system.  Like I said, if it's not possible to do the permissions properly for whatever reason, you can use getfacl/setfacl to copy permissions over02:19
djjonexu know they have everything there02:19

rcmaehlit exists but not when I boot from grub...02:23
edbianrcmaehl, does it all look correct?02:23
datakidcan I get some help with rsync or can someone point me to where I can get some help with rsync02:23
edbianrcmaehl, Well then you my friend need to boot (the system, not the live CD) and look for errors to figure out why you're getting dumped to busybox.  It's possible that the / partition is not being mounted so you're not seeing your /etc/fstab even though it is there.02:24
SushiDudercmaehl, oh hi =P02:24
edbiandatakid, I can help.  More specifically what is the problem?02:25
pooltableis there a way to have 2 hard drive one with windows os the other with ubuntu and both boot at the same time if so how ?02:25
edbianpooltable, It is not possible to boot two OS's at the same time.02:26
rcmaehledbian: proc doesn;t have a device though'02:26
datakidedbian, I am backing up a 550GB drive. I've done a 3 day cp -a to get 500 across. Now I want to rsync the remaining files, but only those that don't already exist in the destination02:26
rcmaehljust noticed that02:26
edbianpooltable, You can have two running at the same time using virtualization.  but one is the host OS and one is virtual02:26
pooltableedbin ok02:26
edbianrcmaehl, That's cause you're not really booting into Ubuntu.  So the whole ubuntu / is not available.  Busybox is very limited.  Do you see any errors during the Ubuntu boot?02:27

datakidedbian, It's a mail spool, that can't go down - so I am expecting some files to have changed, hence mv from cp to rsync02:27
djjonexmy postfix is running how do i send an email now? :(02:27
edbiandatakid, ok hang on, I have to think02:27
edbiandatakid, Should it delete files that are at the destination that are not at the source?02:27
datakidedbian, for some reason I get the impression that rsync will actually overwrite or re-copy files that allready exist02:27
edbianpooltable, virtualbox is neat like that :)02:27
datakidI only want the diff02:28
datakidedbian, yes, I have --delete already02:28
edbiandatakid, rsync is built specifically to easily do what you want02:28
edbiandatakid, -u is the flag you're looking for02:28

LinuxNoobi spent forever trying to open somethin stupid on my desktop, to find out that i had to say /Desktop not /desktop >.>03:46
brandon420ActionParsnip, we appreciate it.03:47
knoppiesLinuxNoob, on linux, capitals ALWAYS (ok, almost always) matter.03:47
LinuxNoobknoppies: i know that now :D03:47
LinuxNoobonly after like..30 minutes of fustration03:47
bobboauok, so, I have just installed 10.10 on a zotac nm10-a-e mobo and I cannot get the 5.1 sound03:47
brandon420everything is case sensitive03:47

LinuxNoobwell. i dod formated my hdd, and linux is my only os03:47
izinucsI just plugged in a usb stick and waited.. then did lsusb and it is recognized but not mounting.. how do I mount it?03:47
pksadiqLinuxNoob: but usually variables are named in capitals     . try     the export command and see some03:47

macoActionParsnip: that's /old/  ... see 8.04? even the one that says 386 is now 68603:48
yonderinghola.  anybody know of a utility to view which mouse button is which when I click them?03:48
macoyondering: xev03:48
pksadiqActionParsnip: what is the difference between 386 and 686?03:48
LinuxNoobthe way i installed it, was i Have to learn what im doing to do it, i cant go back to windows :D03:48
whiteshadowtrying to install from usb, but getting cannot mount cd-rom, ideas?03:48
LinuxNoobinless..i reinstall it ofcourse, which i wont do, inless i have to for a project for school lol03:49
yonderingmaco, that's the one I was looking for, thanks.. just couldn't remember the name.03:49
knoppieswhiteshadow, is the error from GRUB or the cd-rom?03:49
yonderingneed to disable the 'wobble' keys on this mouse. =/03:49
macopksadiq: its a matter of what cpu instructions intel added at what point in history. cmov was added in i686, so UnderSampled probably has a i586 (which would be quite old) or a Via or some brand of thin client (which simply stuck with the old architecture very long)03:50
pksadiqLinuxNoob: if you use Only ubuntu for at least a week, M$ windows will look bad, especailly the scrolling techniques and ....... of ubuntu03:50
fool_LinuxNoob: also try virtualbox03:50
fool_does anyone know how to fix problem where CUPS printers are not shown in the print dialog (evince, firefox, etc...) ?03:50
pksadiqmaco: is there something special with the naming/03:50
whiteshadowknoppies: i'm not using grub, i used univeral usb installer03:50
knoppiesLinuxNoob, you could use something like virtualbox to run windows (assuming your hardware is sufficient), or use WINE which enables you to run some windows apps on linux.03:50
LinuxNoobive got xp,vista,7 cd's i dont need a vm03:50
father_longcat>switch to ubunt03:51
father_longcat>2 years later, visit windows 703:51
LinuxNoobi just am for lack of better quote, jumping in to linux and programming in general without knowhing how to swim03:51
father_longcat>cant find drivers for computer03:51
LinuxNoobive got an asus gaming labtop, it can run lots of stuff :D03:51
knoppieswhiteshadow, is the .iso supported by universal USB installer?03:51
pksadiqLinuxNoob: genuine?03:51
father_longcatlinuxnoob: no offense to anyone here but the best OS for gaming is Win7 unless you love to mess with WINE03:52
LinuxNoobyeah my stuff is legit :)03:52
brandon420whats the best media player for a large volume of music? (flac)03:52
whiteshadowknoppies: yeah, it is supported, otherwise it wouldn't find the iso, i had trouble with it for a bit cuz i was selecting a desktop version when i had the server iso03:52
rwwfather_longcat: #ubuntu is for Ubuntu technical support. Your opinions on Ubuntu vs. Windows 7 are not technical support.03:52
LinuxNoobim goin to school to be a CNT, i know windows, just never messed with linux03:52
knoppiesLinuxNoob, you could use your CDs to install the OS on a VM. You could also duel boot the two. Many people (including myself) do that.03:52
father_longcatbut neither is stating "I have an asus laptop"03:52
ultrabizweb2Have to agree with father ubuntu lts for servers FTW...03:53
LinuxNooband ill need this for later on, when i do servers, as alot use UNIX03:53
macopksadiq: um... 586 is newer than 386 nd 686 is newer than both?  i mean...i think this corresponds to pre-pentium days03:53
father_longcatlts is great for servers03:53
fool_brandon420: mpd03:53

pksadiqmaco: then why the numbering is in the reverse order? any ideas?03:53
father_longcatdescending order of set03:53
father_longcatI mean03:53
brandon420fool_, there isnt anything like foobar, or winamp03:53
father_longcatit went from 386 to 58603:54
father_longcatand then to 68603:54
ActionParsnippksadiq: 386 is the old 8082 CPUs. 686 includes Pentium 3 CPUs and higher (from what I remember)03:54

macoUnderSampled: even some thin clients being manufactured *now* are still 586. maybe its a cheaper architecture to produce *shrug*03:54

LinuxNoobhe wanted a prank he could do to his moms computer, so i wrote him one03:55
brandon420fool_, i have over 11k songs, i need something that will organize it all for me, lol. i know vlc doesnt do that, not sure about mpd, but imma give it a try03:55

xangualjsoftnet: yes03:56
knoppieswhiteshadow, I can suggest using a tool which mounts the drive using GRUB legacy and then trying to follow what that guy said in the forum post.03:56
MrUnagianyone know why rsync -r --delete doesn't work within a script?03:56
fool_brandon420: mpd takes a little to set up, but once it runs it's very nice :)03:56
pksadiqbrandon420: what about mplayer or rhythm box?03:56

pksadiqfool_: my whole hard disk is ~80 GB :O03:56

brandon420father_longcat, what media player you use?03:57
knoppieswhiteshadow, no, I used the multi-iso thing from pendrivelinux, I forget what its called, Let me find it for you. You will have to edit the menu.lst, but otherwise it should work.03:57
ActionParsnipbrandon420: tried deabbeef?03:57

whiteshadowknoppies: gonna give that a shot, be back in 503:58
knoppieswhiteshadow, I suggest you install some small .iso (other than your server one, we will do that manually) then copy your server.iso onto the root of the flash drive. Then we will need to edit the menu.lst03:59
brandon420ActionParsnip, imma try that now03:59

father_longcatwe will invent the self-extracting TARball03:59
ultrabizweb2Pendrive is good stuff03:59
knoppieswhiteshadow, 64 or 32bit? Because that doesn't seem to have the 64bit under the options, but I think you can use it anyway.04:00
KB1JWQknoppies: Does your system support 64 bits?04:00
rewinelandso no ideas on a good ftp server04:01
brandon420must all the good shit be a bitch to install?!04:01
knoppiesKB1JWQ, yes it does, Im talking about a tool that puts .iso files onto a USB flash drive.04:01

ultrabizweb2Does use more ram for gui though.04:04
ActionParsnipultrabizweb2: so why run an ftp server as well as sftp?04:04
knoppiesm_fulder, does your script have the #!/bin/bash (I think its called a shabang or something)04:04
sacarlsonrewineland: well you said you wanted something that needed no account, so maybe ssh wouldn't be as easy for that04:04
pksadiqm_fulder: you might have to change the first line , what is it now #!  .......?04:04
m_fulderknoppies, yes it has04:04
ultrabizweb2For legacy support04:04
m_fulderpksadiq, its #!/bin/bash04:05
ultrabizweb2Most of the time I use scp04:05
ultrabizweb2I have a developer or 2 that uses it.04:05
brandon420deadbeef is 100% legit04:05
knoppiesm_fulder, then Im not sure what your issue is then. Is it possible that the script works its just so quick you dont see the terminal??04:05
pksadiqm_fulder: might be you need to change it to #!/bin/terminal -e         or what ever your terminals path is and try double click04:06
JoseeAntonioRHello, anyone here?04:06

macovirtus: screen isn't an editor, but moving on... glib-2.0 is just the package *name*. the version is 2.2604:11
father_longcat^doing something horribly wrong04:11

dschuettkatphive i am using an ubuntu server box with two nics as my router which is running iptables and bind/dhcp05:45

brandon420how can i install the compiz "extra plugin" package?05:46
katphivedschuett: Also, if the system's running BIND, it's going to try using its own internal resolver FIRST - which means that BIND is going to resolve your host before it ever kicks it out to Google.05:46

ActionParsnipjonnyboi: miint is now debian based which is a rolling release06:06
thorbj0rng_0_0: yeah, but the script might still have a "New Folder" in there somewhere06:06
sacarlsonpylix: that not an application that a lib,  what application is it you plan to run it with?06:06
jonnyboithey do? In the US06:06
g_0_0thorbj0rn, possibly but we haven't seen the makefile, worth a try just to rename it06:06
ActionParsnipjonnyboi: http://www.dell.co.uk/ubuntu06:06
jonnyboiI'm also a gentoo/arch user but I was wondering if ubuntu would go rolling release similar to mint06:07
pylixoh i need the dependency to get gtk+2.22.106:07
thorbj0rnpylix: pastbin makefile?06:07
xgt001no no... ubuntu will be 6 month cycle06:07
ActionParsnipjonnyboi: sorry: http://www.ubuntu.com/dell06:07
pylixthe whole thing?06:07
rigvedpylix: i suggest restarting the make process by forcing it to start fresh, instead of using the cached files06:08
jonnyboithanks, and the next LTS version is 12.04?06:08
sacarlsonpylix: gtk_2.22.1 is also a lib,  what application on top top top of that?06:08
ActionParsnipjonnyboi: yes06:08
zenithdk_-hi, when trying to compile rawstudio I get an error about not being able to find glib.h, but I already installed libglib2.0-dev, and I did apt-get build-dep rawstudio - it seems like a lot of include directories are missing to the gcc command, what should I do?06:08
xgt001rolling release requires us to break our heads over broken packages :D (thats wat i guess) :P06:08
xgt00112.04 will be LTS :)06:08
pylixxfce 4.806:08
jonnyboihmm, I know with arch/gentoo you have to merge config files with new updates06:09
jonnyboiI suspect it would be too hard for common users to do manually06:09
jonnyboinot sure how mint is going to pull it off06:09
xgt001ya ... thats the reason06:09
goddardis it possible to login to ssh as the mysql user?06:10
xgt001but mint have seperate editions for lxde, xfce, kde, gnome (ubuntu) and gnome (debian which is rolling)06:10
rwwCan we move the general OS talk to #ubuntu-offtopic, please?06:10
sacarlsonpylix: well even that's a lib,  but there are already ppa in 10.04 and 10.10 for that http://www.webupd8.org/2011/01/xfce-48-ubuntu-1004-and-1010-ppas.html06:11
xgt001rww: can i update my current ubuntu install offline???06:11

g_0_0pylix, good06:14
xgt001and i have heard about something lik "apt safeupgrade" whats that06:14
thorbj0rnxgt001: aptitude safe-upgrade06:14
g_0_0pylix, I think the configure script was thrown by the initial spaces, without the space now it's going06:14
rwwxgt001: aptitude safe-upgrade is approximately equivalent to apt-get upgrade. It installs packages that are newer in your current version's repositories than on your computer.06:14

thorbj0rnxgt001: "man aptitude"06:15
xgt001are synaptic , ubuntu software center and aptitude independent ???06:15
pylixthe reason i used a folder was cause i didn't think the extract would make one06:15

ActionParsnipxgt001: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BluetoothDialup06:20
xgt001but it works flawlessly in 11.04 !!!06:20
SoulPropagationuse 11.04 then06:20
xgt001thats eating my headoff!06:20
xgt001 dude 11.04 is in alpha stage... (incomplete distro!!)06:21
rww#ubuntu is for released versions of Ubuntu. Try #ubuntu+1 for natty discussion.06:22
ActionParsnipxgt001: then make your call, which is more important..06:22

bazhangxgt001, then be patient06:23
=== jonnyboi is now known as jonnyboy

bazhangxgt001, its offtopic here06:23
xgt001ok... :) any ideas about connecting nokia 6600 via bluetooth to Ubuntu 10.10 /10.04 for net connection????06:24
SoulPropagation1get the packages that are updated in 11.04 and add them to your 10.10 install06:24
rwwMixing packages from different versions of Ubuntu is not supported in this channel.06:25
ActionParsnipxgt001: http://www.abttech.com/connecting-internet-in-ubuntu-using-mobile-as-modem-via-bluetooth-or-datacable/06:25
bazhangSoulPropagation1, supremely bad advice06:25
xgt001i agree with bazhang ... will break lots of packages....06:26
xgt001actionparsnip: i tried it ... doesnt work :(06:26
ActionParsnipxgt001: could just wait 2 months06:26
SoulPropagation1it works with 11.04's packages; it doesn't work with 10.10's packages. that means the only option is to use the updated versions of the packages. you could manually install them but there's no real option outside of version mixing06:28
brandon420how can i check my computer specs?06:28
xgt001the basic problem is... 10.10 cant access my cellphone's bluetooth services ....(even file sharing) ....06:28
bazhangSoulPropagation1, dont recommend it here. its not helpful at all.06:29

ActionParsnipbrandon420: or use lshw-gtk06:29
g_0_0brandon420, sudo lshw | less06:29
xgt001@brandon420: go to system>administration>system monitor> system06:29
sacarlsonxgt001: might it just be in the kernel of 11.04?  you should be able to backport that06:29

xgt001sacarlson: ya .... if thats the case then i dont think nothing much can be done :(06:30
xgt001i wanted especially for 10.04 as its an LTS06:30
SoulPropagation1bazhang: we've determined that it needs a newer version of whatever manages the connection than is available in 10.10. what else can you do besides get the newer package (or manually getting the package's contents or building the contents etc) somehow?06:31
lazyPower!info spidermonkey-bin06:31
ubottuPackage spidermonkey-bin does not exist in maverick06:31
sacarlsonxgt001: why did you already boot the 11.04 kernel in 10.10 and fail?06:31
bazhangSoulPropagation1, backports06:31
xgt001@sacarlson: nonono i was using 10.10 b4.... bt then formatted it and installed 11.04 (only for testing)... and i noticed that bluetooth works so dint remove it06:32
SoulPropagation1xgt001: do you have problems with 11.04?06:32
ActionParsniplazyPower: do you mean Mozilla's C implementation of JavaScript.06:33
lazyPowerActionParsnip: its required to run the jslint plugin for gedit is all i know06:33
pylixthe ppa didn´t work06:33
pylixmy txt rendering is messed up now06:33
xgt001@SoulPropagation1: not with the connection but with the gui of the OS .... i cant logout easily, notification area and compiz crashes randomly and so on06:33
lazyPowerpylix: ooooooo i hadn't considered searching for a ppa. thanks!06:34
xgt001thats justified though... its still in alpha...any help for 10.04 ???06:34
sacarlsonxgt001: so make a dualboot system with 10.10 and 11.04 and try backport the 11.04 kernel then,  if not boot the one that has the feature you need at the moment06:34
ActionParsniplazyPower: maybe: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/lucid/i386/spidermonkey-bin/   never heard of it personally06:34
PurplePeterHi everyone. Xorg has gone berserk and is taking up 100% CPU time on one core, and not working correctly. For some reason, despite sending it SIGKILL and SIGSTOP repeately, it won't die. How do I kill it?06:35
xgt001@sacarlson: 11.04 has a sad grub as of now.... it wont install with the normal installation... it shows error ... so no 10.04 dual boot :(06:35
fdsaseemslegitPurplePeter, you kill it softly.  Also,  Have you tried to reboot?06:36
SoulPropagation1xgt001: how about installing 10.04 second to use its grub06:36
sacarlsonxgt001: you don't need to change grub to boot the 11.04 kernel,  keep 10.04 grub and try just port the kernel06:36
xgt001ok first i have to install 11.04 then 10.04???06:36
Skilzhey guys my pc is screwed, it keeps freeing on the graphical 'Ubuntu' screen with the .... under it, it's before the GDM or what ever it is login screen.06:36
SoulPropagation1xgt001: or use 10.04's installer to reinstall grub06:37
xgt001sacarlson: can u explain how to port the kernel???06:37
chupacabratry fedora06:37
sacarlsonxgt001: you said you already have 11.04 installed,   you just need to setup a spare 6 gig partition to install the secound06:37
ActionParsnipSkilz: when the splash shows, press ESC and you can see the useful text that plymouth hides06:37
ActionParsnipchupacabra: please be constructive06:37
xgt001@chupacabra: ya i tried fedora as well ,... doesnt work06:37
chupacabralol sorry06:38
Blue1xgt001: this might help re-install grub:  http://pkill-9.com/?p=31406:38
chupacabrawhat video chipset?06:38
PurplePeterfdsaseemslegit: I have not. I was more worried about whether I've gone insane and SIGKILL doesn't actually just rudely remove the process from the run queue, than worried about how to fix the issue. For reference, I just discovered that dmesg has some pretty horrific things in it, so I think this issue may be that of a crashed graphics driver.06:38
sacarlsonxgt001: to port the kernel just get the deb file for it and install it in 10.04 or just copy the two files that make up a kernel and put them into /boot and create a custom grub2 entry to boot that set of ported kernel to try06:39
SkilzActionParsnip: not working06:39
xgt001sacarlson: ok the simple deb install should work???06:40
lazaruspchi, I just moved my home folder to a new drive/partition, and I see a "lost & found" folder in it - is that normal?  I'm a Linux noob - ty06:40
xgt001wat about the dependencies????06:40
xgt001lazarus: ya thats normal...06:40
lazaruspcok, thanks - is that like the hidden "recycler" in windows?06:41
ActionParsnipSkilz: ok then hold shift at boot, select recovery mode then select root, you can now use nano to edit /etc/default/grub and remove the quiet splash boot options, you can then run: update-grub  to apply the change and reboot to get a text boot06:41
sacarlsonxgt001: I'm not sure if the kernel is you problem or not but it's one difference between that it could be,  what version kernel is your 11.04 now running?06:41
xgt001@lazarus: exactly!06:41

lazaruspcmight have to change region on the dvd player, listerdl06:43
listerdlthanks is that an option in VLC lazaruspc?06:43
lazaruspclisterdl: doubt it - in windows, you right-click on the player, properties - not sure in linux (I'm noob)06:44
lazaruspcthink it affects the firmware06:45

hakermaniawindparadise: For an application I am developing. The last step is to associate the mime-type with the application. All other things have been done08:15

ActionParsnipCan remember your wishes08:15

hakermaniaActionParsnip: I wasn't probably understood. I am developing an app. It is currently reviewed by the MOTUS, in order to be included to ubuntu. This app has some project files. These files have to be opened with my application by default, once my application's deb file is installed. Imagine that you're downloading a DEB file from Ubuntu Software Center e.g. audacity, it does have .aup project files, that open by default with Audacity. I wan08:20
hakermaniaI have created the new mime type, I've added an icon for this mime-type, and all work, except the association application-mime type, i mean, to open this mime-type with my application.08:21
ActionParsniphakermania: there is a textfile in the user folder to set associations per user so the file may be in /usr/skel08:21

VCooliotgywa: you needed to pipe to awk too, but if it's done, then ok, np11:33
shooooddaniel thank u so much11:33
shoooodi'm trying via terminal11:33
shoooodso what does this cheese do ???11:33
minimecshooood: Stay calm ;) plug it in and start gstreamer-properties. Look in the video section under v4l or v4l2, if you find the cam.11:33
shoooodi setup skype and try to use the webcam but it doesn't work11:34
jukVCoolio: did he fixed his conky?11:35
vandrarwassup mates11:35
DanielParkeranyone: how can I backup my printer-settings+drivers?11:36
VCooliojuk: pretty much, line TEXT was missing, and some packages used in this config; it's better now, he'll get there11:36
mkanyicyDanielParker: why would you want to do that?11:37
shoooodit's supposed to setup chesse but there is nothing11:37
shoooodi typed chesse after the installation finished but it didn't work11:38
sacarlsonDanielParker: most of the stuf if not all can be found and backed up at /etc/cups/ dir11:38
DanielParkermkanyicy, I want to because it was a real hassle installing it... I'm upgrading from 9.10 to 10.10 and it doesn't seem to be a lot better there... so just in case I want to save the printer-settings/drivers11:38

minimecshooood: Did you check gstreamer-properties (Multimedia System Selector)? If your cam is v4l-cam, then skype and cheese will not work, because they only work with 4vl2-devices imho.11:39
shoooodi don't understand11:40
nixjrive made a .sh script, and i want it to run automatically every 10mins, how do i achive that?11:40

shoooodit's not that11:41
mkanyicyDanielParker: just note down the steps you took to install them and proceed11:41
minimecshooood: Pease check gstreamer-properties... v4l is the first gegenratio of linux-webcam-dirvers. v4l2 is the 2nd generation... ;)11:41
shoooodbut i can't understand what does it mean v4l-cam11:41

cmartin0is there a way to prevent that driver from loading?11:46
minimecshooood: gstreamer is your default multimedia framework. If you have rhythmbox or totem player on your system you have gstreamer running. It's default on a ubuntu install. I would be surprised, if you don't have gstreamer installed on your ubuntu system...11:46
dirtyhabanerocmartin0: do you know the apache chan?11:46
shoooodminimec : sorry11:46
cmartin0dirtyhabanero, is this related to 4chan?11:47

dirtyhabanero no, don't worry11:47
shoooodminimec : how can i use this gstreamer11:47
Ad0on my mdadm lvm setup11:47
minimecshooood: <Alt>F2 key on your keyboard, then gstreamer-properties --> You will have a window that pops up. go to the video section and check the v4l and v4l2 devices.11:48
Ad0what's up with that11:48

mkanyicySoftarPaul: try 'sudo service mysql stop' followed by 'sudo service mysql start'11:58

sacarlsonmattc__: sudo apt-get remove --purge mysql12:04
shoooodminimec : how is that ???12:04
minimecshooood: Your cam should also be recognized by skype, if it is recognized in cheese.12:04

gratz|homehi all, i have a python script which should open a usb device to read from, it works as root but not as standard user (permissions problem) in the past it used to be a case of adding the user to the usb group in /etc/group but it seems this has changed, how should i go about doing this now?

RishavTHey guys. I've been using Ubuntu since quite a while now, and I've always had a slight lag in the compiz animations. I thought it was because of my configuration (3 yr old laptop, core2duo 1.5GHz, 2gb ram, nvidia GeForce 8400M GS). However, recently my mom bought a Dell Inspiron Mini (Atom 1.6GHz processor, 1gb ram, Intel inegrated graphics). And it works perfectly on hers (better than mine). So It shouldn't be due to low configuration (since even window13:21
RishavTs seven works fast), and on researching on the internet I've found out its due to nvidia. But I never found a solution. Anyone knows how I can get rid of this? (Lag increases a lot when using docky)13:21
OinsAfter some (wrong) changes at the sudoers file, i get "/etc/sudoers: syntax error near line..." for a the "sudo -i" command. How can i login as root again?13:21

Oinsschnuffle1: Good for you... next time i have this too :)13:25
schnuffle1Oins: but please set AllowRootLogin to no on sshd config13:25
schnuffle1Oins: and next time use visudo which prefents syntax errors13:26
Oinsschnuffle1: i have AllowGroups... and AllowRootLogin no13:26
m4rtinOins: you might be able to fix this by modifying grub to boot with init=/bin/bash13:26
Oinsschnuffle1: ah is visudo a sudo editor?13:26
rbk17RishavT: last thing I can think of: I guess glxinfo | grep vendor13:27
m4rtinOins: actually, cancel that, it won't give your ssh session root13:27
Dr_Willisvisudo double checkes the sudoers file i belive.13:27
rbk17RishavT: gives you: OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation13:27
RishavTrbk17: okay, I'll just do that. one moment.13:27

MojoJojohi how much swap need for ubuntu installation13:27
m4rtinOins: afraid so13:28
m4rtin"The default sudo configuration in Ubuntu is pretty basic and can be found in the /etc/sudoers file. Note that you must never edit this file using a standard text editor. You must use the visudo tool. visudo is required because it will perform extra validation on the sudoers file before you close it to make sure there aren't any syntax errors. This is crucial because a syntax error in a sudoers file could lock out all of the users on you13:28
