crimsonmaneAlexander you can get jasper from the software center inside your "start menu" thingy00:00
ActionParsnipMarkB: well, different models use different chips in the camera, so it varies. Some will work without any effort, some need a little work00:00

minimecMarkB: All newer Logitech cams are using the UVC driver and are compatible.00:00
Alexander_After I install Cheese, where will it be?00:00
MarkBMinimec:  Where can I get Drivers then?  I have c310, is that compatible?00:00
shawnboy[TK]D-Fender: have you taken it for a spin?00:00
crimsonmaneAlexander_: Applications > Ubuntu Software Center, search for Jasper, it's called "The JasPer JPEG-2000 runtime library"00:01
minimecMarkB: Newer cams should be plug&play. Otherwise see http://www.quickcamteam.net/00:01
ActionParsnipshawnboy: its fine here, its also default in natty00:02
valadareshey guys,what is the limit of RAM that detects xubuntu?00:02
crimsonmaneim going AFK... private message me for jasper help00:02
Alexander_crimsonmane00:02
Alexander_I found it,00:02
SentynelMy Kubuntu 10.10 system fails to boot on newer kernel versions - 2.6.35-24 works, but -25 and -27 fail - it just hangs on a plain blue screen when Xorg should start. Had a look in Xorg's logs and all I could find that looks relevant is "[    13.197] (WW) Open ACPI failed (/var/run/acpid.socket) (No such file or directory)". Any ideas?00:02
ActionParsnipAlexander_: under the application menu someplace00:02
Alexander_okay.00:02
[TK]D-Fendershawnboy: Minimally on Windows only so far...00:02
MarkBMinimec:  What driver do I need to get for my c310 to work on Emesene?00:02
MarkBBecause, it will not work for some reason; but I go to Preferences and it works there.00:03
ActionParsnipMarkB: run:  lsusb    and use the 8 character hex id to find guides00:03
shawnboy[TK]D-Fender: sorta stable?00:03

ActionParsnipMarkB: did it not output some text?00:04
MarkBAction:  No sir, it didn't.00:04
valadareswho know what is the limit of RAM that detects Xubuntu?00:04
ActionParsnipvaladares: 32bit or 64bit?00:05
beekari'd say that xubuntu would detact all that your bios would, if you use 6400:05
shawnboy[TK]D-Fender: thanks. for the moment, I'll chalk the envelope thing up to "one of those things". Appreciate your suggestions.00:05
minimecMarkB: So it is tather an Emsnse problem... Install guvcview once and start it. If it works your cam is 100% uvc compatible. It looks like the c310 is an update of the c300 webcam. http://answerpot.com/showthread.php?814602-Support+for+the+Logitech+C310+USB+HD+Webcam00:05
valadares32bits00:05
valadaresActionParsnip:i use xubuntu 32 bits00:06
ActionParsnipvaladares: 32bit can use 3.2Gb, 3.2Gb can use 64Gb (but each process can only use 3.2Gb), 64Bit can use 16 exabytes technically00:06
[TK]D-Fendershawnboy: Idea : Feed the envelope and "cheat" the alignment to get the same ends00:06
ActionParsnip3.2Gb == 32bit PAE, sorry00:06
MarkBMinimec:  Thank you, I will look at this.  Do I get guvcview by entering in Terminal?00:06
Trashihi. i did install ubuntu (gnome) maverick. i use the recommend driver for me nvidia 9500. the problem is that all, especially flash, movies are jerking ... what can i do? before installing ubuntu 10.10 i did use kubuntu 10.04 with the same driver, and everything was fine?!00:06
minimecMarkB: sudo apt-get install guvcview00:07
MarkBI know that, just wanted to know if you get from somewhere else.00:07

myradlifeHi everyone!   I have a script listed to execute in my crontab but it does not appear to actually take effect. I know this because running the script manually has an effect on a log file.

mycosyshaving an issue with xkb - have edited the rules and srvr_ctrl files to add back the vtsysreq option, but no joy, suspect ubuntu has disabled the xorg behavior of compiling them on start, how do i get it to runxkbcomp automatically?00:11
TrashiActionParsnip: ok i'll try that ... i did use your recommended flash package with kubuntu, but ubuntu suggested these packages .. thank you for your help00:11

rami1983hallo! when i try to browse my smartphone via bluetooth, the smartphone asks me for a password. which pass should i type???00:20
Alexander_Can I send you a scrennie?00:20
Motherwhenever I reboot, iwconfig reports the essid as something totally weird, eg. ESSID:"g\xC6isQ\xFFJ\xEC)\xCD\xBA\xAB\xF2\xFB\xE3F|\xC2T\xF8\x1B\xE8\xE7\x8DvZ.c3\x9F\xC9\x9A"00:20
ActionParsnipAlexander_: just copy the text and use pastebin, no need for a full screenie, We only need the text00:21
beekaryeah that looks weird.00:21
minimecMarkB: Your cam is recognized by ubuntu as uvc cam. You can use it with skype, and other software. I don't now if emesene is able to interact 100% with the uvc driver, but you won't find a better driver for your cam in linux. UVC is the best.00:21
Motherthis is what I have in /etc/network/interfaces http://pastebin.com/LHkKTqkc00:22
MarkBSo, my only bet is to get Skype?00:22
MotherI've tried the ESSID with and without quotes00:22

fuzion24mycosys, possibly, but I don't think so00:27
mycosysyou would need to force it on this system then, not a good idea00:27
Alexander_How do I configure it?00:27
myradlifeslt28800642, I've tried with */30 and I have the same issue00:27
fuzion24is there some issue with ubuntu and ntfs partitions over a certain size00:28

fuzion24sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/Green00:30
fuzion24Mount is denied because the NTFS volume is already exclusively opened.00:30
fuzion24The volume may be already mounted, or another software may use it which00:30

nsdodeland: All you have to do to try another desktop manager is install the package from Synaptic or on the command line. E.g., if you wanted to go from Gnome (used in Ubuntu) to KDE (used in Kubuntu), that's as simple as sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop01:05

Geoffrey2I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 Gnome, and I'm looking at a box talking about a Distribution Upgrade....next upgrade should be 11.04 in late April....01:07
nsdvisual1ce: I think you might be able to do that if you install in expert mode; otherwise, yes, you can edit the ISO01:07
nsdvisual1ce: take a look at this: http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/1003801:07
crimsonmaneGeoffrey2: the version number on Ubuntu 10.10 refers to the date it was released. so yes you should do that distro upgrade01:08

nsdzombie_: Depends on where you live, whether that's legal or not. If you're in the USA, that would violate the DMCA.01:11
Geoffrey2crimsonmane, I'm already running 10.10, and have been since October....01:11

zombie_if I buy music I have the right to remove the drm from it01:12
nsdzombie_: I don't believe that's how the law works; that's the reason for the DMCA. Removing DRM is illegal, afaik01:13

HezinhoGRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="i8042.nopnp" - this is what it looks like - its okay ?01:15
nsdGeoffrey2: releases that are marked LTS you only have to upgrade from every third (?) release, when another LTS is released. LTS stands for long term support. The last LTS was 10.04, so since you have10.10, do the upgrade.01:15
ActionParsnipsec^nd: did you MD5 test the ISO you downloaded?01:15

ActionParsnipHezinho: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i8042.nopnp"01:15
nsdsec^nd: If gparted fails, the installer can't continue. You might try partioning with another program (though I doubt that'd help) or another flash drive01:16
ActionParsnipthethinker: if thats the search engine you prefer, yes01:16

alexanderbandukwthor: i didn't want to have to write it if it would01:18

Strife1989Hello, all. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Inspiron 700m. It has a rather annoying quirk: whenever the AC adapter is unplugged, the laptop will always go to Standby. If the laptop is already in Standby or is Hibernating when I unplug the AC Adapter, it will go (back) into Standby once it resumes. Might anyone have an idea as to why it does this?03:04
Abhijit[thor], thanks i install kradioripper and kstreamripper too03:06
Strife1989I do know that it's not triggering the "Standby button pressed" reaction, as changing the action to Hibernate does not cause it to Hibernate on unplugging.03:06

crimsonmanepsusi: for an issue that has been around for years, i would expect it to be fixed03:18
heslamvtor: 10.10 installs very quickly, especially due to the fact that it installs ubuntu whilst you dilly dally over entering details. the partitioner is easier to use too if that's what you're having problems with03:18
psionxrdodrx: they all are...03:18
vtoryh slow hardware and slow human03:18
psusicrimsonmane, can't fix it because the windows driver is proprietary... only the manufacturer could fix it03:18

L-Strife89In other words, just don't try to do too much at once. ;)03:19
psionxrdodrx: /host is your OS's drive, / is the main drive.  so you could say there's 11gb left03:19

abstraktlike, I'm dealing with some automated system setup kind of stuff03:33
AurigaOh no I meant Vtor, he said he is broke, I was saying when he has money to go to Newegg...03:33
abstraktand it's not pheasible to use visudo because that's interactive03:33
abstraktif I manually change the sudoers file03:33
joeoshawaross, need specifics what laptop model03:33
L-Strife89ross: Maybe run apt-get install acpi?03:33

rosslet me try it03:33
abstraktrww, ok great thanks03:33
crimsonmaneis there a list of applications that can be obtained via sudo apt-get, and are these also available through the software store thingy? if not, why must they be obtained in two different ways?03:34
alexanderbandukwexit03:34
farhanshahid2009so google native client uses java right?:-/03:34
arrrghhhcrimsonmane: there's 15 different ways.03:34
rossok trying apt-get install acpi03:34
AurigaCrimsonmane the "Software thingy" Are programs which are in the respitories.03:34
arrrghhhcrimsonmane: the software center is a front-end for apt.03:34
Auriganot all programmes are in there.03:35
vtorhaha nah they already gone and left me nada03:35
arrrghhhcrimsonmane: technically apt-get is a front-end for apt.03:35
AurigaSOmeone correct me if wrong...03:35
heslamcrimesonmane: software centre and synaptic are front ends for apt. synaptic might be more your thing if you're looking for something more technical03:35
arrrghhhAuriga: please don't answer if you're not sure.03:35

skorwhat can I change with bash to allow cursor movement within vi during edit mode ?03:35
crimsonmanethanks for all the responses. my next question is why can't they be compiled under one umbrella for me to browse? why must i go to 15 different places?03:35
rwwbecause you voluntarily choose to use more than one place instead of just using apt-get?03:36
joeoshawaone sec lemme see if i can google something i tend to have better success  then most03:36
rww(or aptitude, for bonus points)03:36
AurigaWas answering as most of the time no one ever does lol.03:36
rossjoeoshawa: please, i just got this laptop 2 days ago03:36
crimsonmaneapt-get requires me to know ahead of schedule what it is i'm getting. i like to browse and find new things.03:36
arrrghhhcrimsonmane: you can go to any of those points and get the same info.  they all pull from the same repo's.03:36
JyZyXELwhat command can you use to see what files a certain process is accessing?03:37
arrrghhhcrimsonmane: so use synaptic or software center.03:37
arrrghhhJyZyXEL: lsof03:37
JyZyXELis there a realtime version of that?03:37

nit-witdigirak, what do you want to dual boot05:04
digiraknit-wit: ubuntu and kubuntu05:05
digiraki want a ubuntu and a kubuntu partition05:05
nit-witdigirak, you can have both on the same OS05:05
cabbagebotOr you could use virtual box and vb the one you'll use the least05:05
jingqq5210generally nvidia driver works well with ubuntu05:05
joeoshawayou can dual boot also if you wish05:05
vishAbhijit: /usr/share/icons/hicolor/.../apps05:05

FBANEXTdamn... the pages just show links and don't work on the print pdf bro05:05
cabbagebotYeah, it could just be my card. It was difficult finding drivers for it on windows05:05
digirakso i want a seperate kubuntu05:06
joeoshawaif you want two different partitions two separate installs you can05:06
nit-witdigirak, how many partitions do you have is the main question and how many HD's05:06

Abhijitvish, thanks05:08
cyybborgi get these funky video color patterns and sound isn't running correctly05:08

sanjeev_digirak: yes but not find any satisfactory answer.05:18
nit-witdigirak, those two partitions amount to about 5 gigs.  You would have to shrink sda5 and you can remove a swap as well.05:19
digiraksanjeev_: also check with your disk analyser05:19
sanjeev_digi_: how can i do this?05:19

nit-witdigirak, boot a live Ubuntu cd open gparted right click both swaps and make sure they are unmounted. right click sda5 the resize and resize. Then build the new partitions in the space of the removed and opened space.05:24

syrinx__genuser_: 3.6.14 works great for me06:17
syrinx_FBANEXT: with or without X?06:18
syrinx_im sure it would run good as a server06:18
neizFBANEXT: actually, sony restricts hardware access in OtherOS.  You are basically using 1/8 processing cores which the PS3 has available to it06:18
lifestreamI stopped using Ubuntu around Lucid, because I didn't like what it was becoming. Is there a place that I can see how much more things have changed?06:18
_genuser_syrinx_: installing new updates. lol, updates to update updates.06:18
SirCaneFBANEXT linux doesn't run on the ps3 very well due to the limitations sony put in the hardware hypervisor06:18
syrinx__genuser_: of course lol06:18
SirCaneyou have half the system ram, no gpu access and only a very small part of the cell processor06:18
FBANEXTWell, I forced linux to boot on 3.55 "not supported anymore for linux" oh well, I thought it would be fun to have a powerful pc but, I thought wrong trying to use the ps3....06:19
lifestreamDoes Ubuntu still use "Indicators">06:19
SirCaneFBANEXT would have been better off getting a 360 and a el-cheapo pc06:20
neizFBANEXT: if sony allowed full access to the hardware then it would be insanely fast, but sadly they crippled it to the point where it is pointless06:20
FBANEXTYeah I'm glad LG sued sony and won hahah06:21
lifestreamWow, no one is using ubuntu right now, that they cant tell me if it has indicators?06:21

buovth0r: How would I change it so that user2 may see the regular prompt, also it seems that this user cannot use commands such as ll?07:04
HyperHoRsejoeoshawa should i remove the old one first?07:04

joeoshawaSecrets, just a sec07:04
ruanis there a way i can remove the splitsecond white screen on software center when its searching?07:04

jrnI need some help in installing a font from shell on my ubuntu server. On my local working machine, I just installed the font with the standard-gui-based-tool ubuntu offers. Everything worked fine, Imagemagick found the font and I was able to use it with it. But now I need to install it from shell, so I put it into /root/.fonts both the otf and a version where I converted the otf with fontforge to ttf. Then I ran fc-cache -fv and it said the font wou08:14
jrnld be installed, but Imagemagick doesn't get it. Next trouble is: since I installed a new version of imagemagick, convert -list font doesn't show the table of fonts I'm used to see08:14

joeoshawaviruses generally have no effect in linux except in wine and even then only major if your running wine as root which you should never do08:23
jrnwhen fc-cache returns "succeded" and "fonts scanned and installed", the font should be available, eh?08:23
FBANEXTI was kinda wondering about that whole virus thing, I think its possible to get a windows virus on linux like a flash drive or external hard drive.  Then that windows virus you got on linux and transfer off those drive once plugged into a windows system?08:23
GryllidaThat'd be fun, joeoshawa, heh. :P08:23

jattmaybe the UUID is not mapping to /dev/sda5 ?09:16
ruanjatt:looks like it09:17
jatthmm09:17
rumpe1jatt, does the UUID match with output of "sudo blkid -g ; blkid"09:17
jattI did swapon and I get:09:17
jattswapon: cannot find the device for UUID=748af6cb-3f0d-4a40-b9b4-7b829a5cf4c509:17
jattrumpe1: with  blkid I am getting: http://pastebin.com/SAc1D9nL09:18
jatt /dev/sda5 is not in the output of that command09:18
jatthow is this possible?09:18
ruanjatt: /dev/sdb5       none            swap    sw              0       009:19
FBANEXTAnybody have any idea whats wrong with my computer?  When every I click wine my computer boots me to the login screen09:19
jattruan: right will try that. those UUIDs are a pain in the neck :)09:19
ruanjatt: do swapon after changing it to that09:19

FBANEXTu'mm sorry but I asked a question09:21
RPMiSOGwibber or Pidgin?09:21
jatthm09:21
ruanjatt: did you do "sudo swapon -a"09:22
jattyes swapon is answering that read swap header failed09:22
FBANEXTWine won't open correctly it just boots me to the login screen whenever I click WINE I get kicked to the login screen then have to relogin09:22
FBANEXTplease09:23
rumpe1jatt, use gparted to check the swap-partition or delete/rebuild it09:23
ruanjatt: you might want to recreate the swap partition09:23
jattmaybe is this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/util-linux/+bug/56903109:23
ubottuUbuntu bug 569031 in util-linux (Ubuntu) "swapon read swap header failed" [Low,Fix released]09:23

tonysanMy machine crashed after I installed openjdk, then it asked me to dpkg --configure -a. Every time I do this, it crashed again, how do I deal with this issue?09:24
FBANEXTWhy am I always ignored when I have a real problem wtf !09:24
jattok will recreate the partition with mkswap09:24
ruanFBANEXT: you can try reinstalling it or installing an older version09:24
rumpe1FBANEXT, be patient09:24
FBANEXTNo that doesn't work done tryed it09:25

FBANEXTI just need to update to the newest X09:26
FBANEXTIts the only way09:26
FBANEXTAnybody know how?09:26
ruanjatt: was it recreated as /dev/sdb5?09:27
jrni just installed the newest imagemagick version by downloading the source, extracting it, ./configure, make, make install, but convert -version still brings the old version, what have I missed to do?09:27

rumpe1FBANEXT, if you really think, this would solve your problems, i don't wonder any longer, how you got into this trouble09:28
jattruan: the right partition is /dev/sda5, but it is not shown in df -a09:28
jattI thought it should appear there?09:29
ruanjatt: is it shown in fdisk -l?09:29

jattand in the top command as shown above09:29
FBANEXTrumpel:: What are you talking about?09:29
rumpe1FBANEXT, stick to the version of the package-manager and solve your problem in a different way09:30
jattI checked in other machine and it doesn't appear in df -a and is using swap09:31
jattso everything is good I guess09:31
FBANEXTHow the log doesn't show any errors and I dunno how to fix this issue09:31
expirementAnybody feel like helping me with a completely newbie question ?09:31

ruan!ask09:31
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)09:31
rumpe1FBANEXT, how have you installed wine exactly?09:31
ruanexpirement: what is the question?09:31
FBANEXTsudo apt-get install wine09:31
expirementI was wondering if the i386 version of ubuntu 10.10 automatically supports intel quad core Q6600. I am confused because the only other package is an AMDx64 package. If i want to use all 4 cores of my processor, which version of ubuntu should i download?09:33
neizFBANEXT: locate a .exe you are trying to run in wine and 'wine <file>.exe' and see the output.. might help troubleshoot your problem09:33
rumpe1neiz, he won't see output, if it crashes his X09:33
FBANEXThmm dunno where it would be09:33
rumpe1FBANEXT, maybe move your $HOME/.wine-Folder to somewhere else, to check, if it's triggered by some weird configuration09:34
ruanexpirement: i think it'll handle all 4 cores with 32bit, but the main question is the ram09:34
=== leonidas_ is now known as Guest66181
Raj007expirement: amd64 is just packaged to use 64-bit instructions on your processor. Q6600 is a 64-bit processor. I would use that.09:35
FBANEXTYou do realize I dunno how to do what you're saying09:35
mycosysexpirement AMD invented 64 bit x86 processors, so the version for them is called AMD 64. works fine on the intel clones too09:35
expirementIm currently running with 3GB of ram. 1GB stick on the way which i will install soon. Will the 32bit version cap me off at 3GB?09:36
mycosyspretty much09:36
FBANEXTugh09:36
neizFBANEXT: could always try a sudo apt-get remove wine then start with a fresh installation of wine09:36
FBANEXTthis is terrible help09:36
expirementnot for me09:36
icerootexpirement: yes, because not only the ram is important, also the ram of your VGA and the general PCI-BUS09:36
mycosysfbanext - if you dont like it you could always pay a consultant09:37
ruanexpirement: in that case you're probably better off with 64bit09:37
FBANEXTright pay somebody, idiot09:37
FBANEXTI'd just go back to windows xp09:37
rumpe1FBANEXT, have fun with xp :)09:37
FBANEXTand say screw this cheap shit09:37
icerootFBANEXT: dont forget to leave this channel09:37
mycosyssteal, pay, ur choice09:37
FBANEXTNo I don't trust me09:37
expirementSo, not only does 32bit limit your ram, but amount of memory on video card as well ?09:37
FBANEXTyou're an idiot09:38
ruanlol what09:38
Raj007lol i hope you guys don't get a lot of FBANEXT's around here.09:38
ruanexpirement: it limits your (ram + video memory) to 3.33gb i believe09:38
mycosysraj007 you hope in vain09:38
icerootexpirement: no, your VGA card will use all of its ram09:38
mycosysruan - is actually a limit of around 4G of addresses09:39
icerootexpirement: but your "real" ram can only handle 4GB ram - VGA - PCI-BUS09:39
ruanmycosys: ah ok09:39
icerootexpirement: so you can use PAE (so you dont have to reinstall) or you do a fresh amd64 installation09:39
mycosyssome are used by the buses, some by vga, what is left the OS can use09:40
icerootexpirement: PAE can hanlde more then 4GB ram, but only 1.8GB per process09:40
icerootmycosys: 4GB - VGA - PCIBUS09:40
expirementi do apologize, but i am windows saavy more than anything and acronyms like PAE are foreign to me. If its not an annoyance could u speak in lamens terms for a newbie ?09:40
mycosys-bios - a few other bits09:40
iceroot!pae | expirement09:41
ubottuexpirement: To use more than ~3.2GB RAM on a 32bit system you can install the PAE-enabled kernel. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE for more info09:41
mycosysPAE is used in doze too09:41
Raj007expirement: just go with 64-bit (fresh install), currently my setup is Q6600@3.6Ghz & 6GB and is stable, working well.09:41
ruanexpirement: physical address extension i believe09:41
mycosysspot on ruan09:41
expirementDid you overclock your Q6600?09:41
expirementmine is 2.409:41
Raj007expirement: yeah Q6600 are VERY overclock friendly.09:42
mmani want to resize the harddisk so I can have windows and ubuntu at the same time. Im trying to run ubuntu livecd but i always get a initramfs error :S09:42
expirementawesome. I read something recently about dell bios's not allowing you to overclock, is this true?09:42
ruanmman: did you verify the integrity of the iso before you burned it?09:42
Raj007expirement: all i did was push my FSB to 405 @ 9x multiplier. And yeah on Dell you can't overclock.09:42
mmanyes09:42
mycosysexpirementnormally yes09:42
mycosysiirc alienware dells can oc09:43
mmanruan, yes09:43
expirementlet me open google real quick to figure out what FSB is =)09:43
Raj007yeah alienware would.09:43
mycosysexpirement front side bus - the way old core and core2 cpus communicate to the rest of the system09:43
Raj007expirement: urmm you also need to play a lot with voltages, stress test etc.09:43
mycosysand older cpus too i spose09:44
expirementyea i'd probably wanna upgrade to liquid cooling as well09:44
mycosysexpirement NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!09:44
expirementno ??09:44
ruanlol09:44
mycosysgood air is as good as most h2o09:44
expirementi hear overclocking is dangerous because of heat09:44
gypsymaurohi09:44
mycosysand badly maintained h2o will kill ir system09:44
Raj007expirement: i'm running fine on air, i forgot which cooler i have, it's been years.09:44
expirementso take the heat away, just dont use liquid cooling ??09:44
gypsymaurothere is a way to prevent nautilus to show hidden shares when browsing a windows network?09:44
mycosysexpirement good air will be enough for ANY 24/7 viable OC09:45
Grishnackhhi there09:45
mycosysis a bit OT here expirement - feel free to join us on efnet #desktops if u like09:45
ruanmy dad used a large fan to cool his pc when the cpu fan failed, it was 10 degrees colder than it was with the cpu fan09:45
Grishnackhhow can i display the filesystem type of a lvm partition?09:45
phretorI've noticed that Ubuntu redirects MySQL's error log to syslog. Is it possible to change this behavior?09:46
mycosysruan - i had a 30cm box fan as my side fan for years09:46
expirementWow i'm sorry. OT ??09:46
mycosysoff topic expirement09:46
expirementah ok09:46
mycosysand this channel is chaotic09:46
expirementsry09:46
mycosyswhy?09:46
mycosysdont be sorry09:46
expirementi like this channel. Very helpful from the very beginning.09:46
ruanGrishnackh: i dont know what a lvm partition is, but have you tried sudo fdisk -l ?09:46
mycosyswould jus be easier there09:46
expirementmust learn the rules though09:46
Grishnackhruan: jepp, i tried fdisk -l...but there's no record containing the filesystem type. lvm partition = lvm logical volume09:48
jrni still need help on compiling and installing a program under ubunutu09:48
mycosysdid you try lvmdisplay?09:48
mycosysGrishnackh09:48
jrnI'm sure here is someone who can help me09:48
ruanjrn: what program is it?09:49
jrnimagemagick09:49
jrni downloaded the source, extracted it, ./configure, make, make install09:49
expirementAny recommendations for reading material on novice command lines and compiling ?? Books for purchase or awesome websites, doesn't matter.09:49
jrnbut convert -version still brings the old one09:49
Grishnackhmycosys: there is no command "lvmdisplay", i think you mean lvdisplay. jepp, i tried already09:50
jrnwhat step did I miss?09:50
mycosyssudo blkid -g ; blkid is what u need Grishnackh09:50
mycosyssorry09:50
expirementI meant to only underline novice, my bad.09:51
jrnruan: any ideas?09:51
Grishnackhmycosys: looks better, but for the fs type there's only TYPE="LVM2_member"...09:51
ruanjrn: did it come with instructions for installation?09:51
jrnyep, the steps i listed above09:51
iqpijrn why don't you install the official version from repo?09:52
jrnwhich are usual for compiling and installing under *nix09:52
jrnmy repo doesn't offer the newest09:52
jrneven not after a dist upgrade09:52
=== samael is now known as Guest33207
mycosysGrishnackh will show it by mount point for the fs09:53
iqpijrn: what have the official imagemagick web version, that the the repo version doesn't have?09:53
mycosysGrishnackh try ls -al /dev/disk/by-uuid and you should be able to figure out from the 2 what is what09:53
jrn6.6.7-10 is the newest and 6.5.7-8 is what I have09:53
sam__Can some one help me on making my taskbars smaller09:54
iqpijrn: but there are some new features? the "old" version does not work?09:54
ruansam__: right click it and click properties09:54
alexrhi, I've got an issue where my python script (maxing out most of my cores) will pause when screen is locked... any ideas?09:54
sam__ok09:55
alexrI need it to continue runnign in the terminal, but when i come back to the system after unlocking screen, I see that CPU has been flat09:55
jrnon my working machine I have the newest version, which can handle the font I want to use, on my server is the old version, which does not handle my font09:55
sam__do you mean the task bars?09:55
ruansam__: yes09:55
ruansam__: panels?09:55
iqpijrn: perhaps you should look for the options available on the ./configure step09:56
iqpijrn: for example, i use to use ffmpeg compiled from svn sources09:56
sam__It is not saying properties09:56
jrnthere are no options listed09:56
alexris it normal for terminal-based processes (i.e. python scripts) to pause when my screen is locked? Any idea how I can stop this?09:56
jrn:|09:56
ruansam__: what do you mean by "taskbar"?09:57
sam__the box fount is to big on fire fox and the box itself is really big09:58
iqpijrn: perhaps in the help files there are not any options listed09:58
guest1874Hi. I've got problem that (hopefully) can be resolved by this http://www.openprinting.org/printer/HP/HP-LaserJet_1005 steps. But can someone tell me where can I find the "sihp1005.dl" file?09:58
jrnhm I don't think the error lies there... make check let's it all pass09:59
iqpijrn: but i have just searched the imagemagick web, and look at the following link http://www.imagemagick.org/script/advanced-unix-installation.php09:59
iqpijrn: there are many options available09:59
jrnbut one last question... afte make install, it should be installed as usual, shouldn't it?09:59
alexrCan anyone point me in the right direction -- after i lock screen my script (running in terminal) loses focus and seems to pause. When I click on it again only then does it resume... any ideas?10:00
iqpijrn: yes, but as ffmpeg, by default, there are some featured disabled by default10:00
iqpijrn: you if you want to have them, you have to recompile with the correct options enabled10:00
maverick340my synaptic segfaults when i type anything in the quick search bar10:00
maverick340any idea why ?10:00
ruansam__: you can try F11 to go fullscreen in firefox10:00
iqpihave to leave, i will connect in some minutes10:01
sam__yes but is there a way to make the boxes smaller?10:01
ruansam__: you could remove any toolbars that you don't use10:03
sam__ok thank you ruan10:04
ekdhalhi !10:04
Raj007speaking of panels, i have this annoying problem. I am using cairo-dock and deleted both my panels (top and bottom). However when i log off and back in, they will both re-appear and i have to delete them everytime. How do i avoid this?10:04
Guest33207does anybody heah know why they deleted java jre from the packages10:06
Grishnackhwhere can i find the log-file from fstab?10:07
Dice-ManGrishnackh: /var/log ?10:08
GrishnackhDice-Man: i did an ll | grep fstab but there's nothing in10:09
llutz_fstab is a file, not a service. grep for mount, but likely those errors would only occur in boot.log, which is disabled by default10:10
icerootGrishnackh: first, you want grep -ir fstab /var/log/* and not pipe the output to grep, second what you excpect in a log about fstab?10:11
happyhessian_if i'm doing a fresh install on a system that already has separate partitions for /home and / is there anything that i need to back up?10:11
iceroothappyhessian_: you cant install into an existing /, you have to format /10:12
Grishnackhiceroot: i made an entry in fstab for automounting a lvm volume. while booting an error mounting /mnt/nas occures...10:12
iceroothappyhessian_: and keep /home10:12
happyhessian_iceroot: right, but what information on / is worth saving?10:12
iceroothappyhessian_: configfiles you edit by hand10:13
happyhessian_all of my personal files and settings are in /home, or at least so i'm led to believe10:13
happyhessian_so like fstab or sources.list10:13
happyhessian_are there any other things that i might overlook...vlc, mpd...almost every program i know of keeps its settings in /home10:14
kekeim a newbie at ubuntu. how can i do manually change dns ,change ip adress or use a proxy10:14
happyhessian_actually, mpd might be in /etc10:14
Bob_Dole_keke: /etc/networking/interfaces is the config file10:15
Grishnackhllutz_: thanks, i actually found an error in there!10:15
kekefor ex. :dns server is 156.154.71.1 and 156.154.70.1 , proxy is 192.168.1.1:8080 like10:15
Bob_Dole_keke: you can right-click on network manager applet and configure it in the GUI too10:17
WassasinI have a problem with TeamSpeak 3. It fails to capture my mic source correctly. (gnome-sound-recorder has no problem, thus my mic source is ok) This is only this case with my mic source; TeamSpeak 3 captures the loopback source (Monitor) fine.10:18
kekeAuto eth0 ipv4 manual settings ive write adress 192.168.1.1 what is netmask and whats gateway10:19
WassasinA sample of how TeamSpeak captures my mic source: http://neko.quezacotl.nl/problems/thisisatest.ogg10:19
iqpiWassasin: have you checked you can record audio with another app?10:19
WassasinYeah10:19
Wassasingnome-sound-recorder works fine10:20
Bob_Dole_keke: if you dont know what those are its best not to mess with them until you do.10:20
llutz_keke: man 5 interfaces             but you'd better use networkmanager and change things there10:20
kekeim a newbie in linux but expert in windows... but i never change netmask and gateway in windows,i only change ip adresses,dns servers etc.10:21
iqpijrn: did you find something in the link y pasted before?10:21
kekeis 255.255.255.0 default netmask?10:22
WassasinMy only guess is that TeamSpeak 3 implements the PulseAudio API incorrectly and does not check what the source format is10:22
llutz_keke: most likely10:22
WassasinBecause that's the only difference between the sources, as far as PulseAudio and TeamSpeak 3 are concerned10:22
WassasinA screeny of padenvchooser: http://neko.quezacotl.nl/problems/teamspeak3.png10:22
Bob_Dole_keke: it depends, in your case probably since its class e10:22

jasonincoloradodesktop10:26
Bob_Dole_Abdalla: i recommend the desktop10:26
Bob_Dole_even people with netbooks dont like the netbook version10:26
jussiAbdalla: the netbook version is a trifle lighter, but its up to you to choose. if your laptop is a bit older or a "mini laptop" - grab the netbook-10:26
jussiAbdalla: but try them both - its free :)10:26
AbdallaThank you.10:26

pupitthanks all10:56
DaraelxAndromeda: When you say "which directory am I supposed to move the files into" - which files?  If you installed from the Software Centre, you'll find Eclipse in your menus.10:57

zpok thank you11:02
MichaelDobrovitszp, i'm not aware of any package that holds cuda toolkit or opencl11:02
DaraelxAndromeda: It looks like the recommended way to do it is rather than copying files, to use the help->software updates->find and install menu option in Eclipse.11:03
DaraelxAndromeda: Specifically, go there, choose "search for new features to install", go next, choose "new remote site", use the URL http://pydev.org/updates and it should be clear from there.11:04
xAndromedathxx a ton!!! i wasnt aware of that11:04

kasadikonia: if you have time, just out of curiosity, how would you partition the disk knowing what the server is meant to do (intranet MIS for 20 or so people who will be storing lots of files on it, with mysql db that will also rapidly grow in size, also they will sometimes access it remotely from their laptops (i use air application for that - go figure they demanded that they have "client" because one of chicks on the board i quote "doesn't like to use browsers"12:24

Amakocan someone help me? i just installed ubuntu netbook and i can't get the right click to work on my mouse12:25
ikoniakasad: just split it into as many options as suites you, eg: /var so your logging is seperate, /srv so your data (mysql/www/whatever) is seperate, / so your root is sperate /boot , /home, swap,12:26
Dr_WillisAmako:  try it in the console. see if it works there. You may need to install 'gpm' first to test it.12:26

kasadikonia: thanks, technically i could still do that considering that it's whole / is LVM12:28
ikoniakasad: true, but is it worth the pain due to your location to the server12:30
kasadikonia: do you think it would be wise, (knowing there's 2 750 gig hd's available atm). Main reason why I didn't messed with it was because I wasn't sure about the size12:30
ikoniakasad: I'd leave it alone personally12:31

ethanolso I followed this guide. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MountWindowsSharesPermanently -- however it does not mount them on boot cause network isn't up fast enough I guess.. I keep having to drop to terminal from x and issue a sudo mount /mnt/destination12:31
kasadikonia: i guess it isn't unless i could get some problems due to everything being stuck onto same partition, as i said, main reason is that i was _very_ unsure about the setting proper size (i know it can be remedied via LVM but this way, i hope to never touch it again, until it's time to add another hd)12:31
ikoniakasad: for me, I'd leave it12:31
kasadikonia: that makes two of us :D12:31

darkguyxD14:27
ikoniaxubuntu89: if you are getting a screen that says "press X to install" then you are booting from install media14:27
Picidarkguy: You can set a window to be 'always on top' from gnome (and probably in kde too).  But the 'selection of a window' part looks a bit more complicated.14:27
darkguyPici: yeah, that works, but the idea is to have a thumbnail of it, so you can have the window minimized - or in another workspace - and still see it in its full size14:28
