RealEyesokay guys I have a  small problem with os-prober. It won't find my win7 on /media/sda! How do I fix this?00:49
MrChrisDruifHai RealEyes :) Still no luck?00:50
RealEyesYeah :P00:50
RealEyesSo, what I did is switched the sata cables and made my win7 hdd /sda00:50
MrChrisDruifWell...I'm outta options....good luck is all I can say :)00:51
RealEyesThanks for the luck! :P00:53
MrChrisDruifI'm off to bed.....sleep well later00:54
RealEyesThis sums up my whole problem, when you consider that Win7 should be there as well: http://pastebin.com/4e6SRQvT00:58
evilduanedesignRealEyes: you might have to add the Windows entries manually01:08
gentlewordsThis is my first try at chat rooms and IRC, so here goes, my question is this: after you install some application, and I generally use the "Ubuntu Software Center", it sometimes happens that you cannot find it in the "applications" drop-down menu, which has games, accessories, graphics...etc.   This is my general complaint.  So how do you invoke a new application that you cannot find?01:53
evilduanedesignhello gentlewords01:54
ddecatorthe latest software center tells you where you can find it :)01:54
gentlewordsso I how do i install it?01:54
ddecatorif you use KDE, you can hit "alt-f2" and start typing the name of the application and it should pop up01:54
gentlewordsI don't use KDE01:55
gentlewordsI just tried alt-f2 anyway and something popped up that I think will get me going.  Thank YOU!!!01:56
ddecatoryou'd have to use a PPA or natty. a better option is to try finding it. i believe using alt-f2 in GNOME will bring up a launcher where you can start typing the application and it will auto-complete the command. what applicaion are you trying to find?01:56
ddecatoroh, haha, beat me to it01:56
gentlewordsI installed maxima but I still can't find it, not even in the01:57
gentlewordsrun application...application.01:58
ddecatorlooks like maxima doesn't have a graphical frontend by default...did you use the software center?01:58
ddecatoror maybe it does, i'm not sure which of these results i'm supposed to be looking at..01:59
evilduanedesigngentlewords: if it is a command line app, try running the command maxima from the Terminal02:00
evilduanedesignalso you can use the command :  where maxima02:00
gentlewordsI had maxima running before and I invoked it via my tray. ... OK, i will try the terminal.  Thanks for that suggestion.02:00
evilduanedesignwhere should find the executable for the package02:01
gentlewordsI tried typing in "where maxima" and got:02:02
gentlewordsExcuse me, i'm not used to this... and no luck.02:03
evilduanedesignwhere maxima   did not return anything?02:04
gentlewordsI tried typing just "maxima" and got some kind of error.02:04
gentlewordsI can't cut & paste from the console.02:05
ddecatoreither use right-clicks, or ctrl+shift+c02:06
gentlewordsbut, I got an error that said "no command 'where' found"02:06
gentlewordsgreat right-clicks works02:07
gentlewordsNow I recall that there was some kind of front end to maxima that gave me a graphical interface.02:08
evilduanedesignlooks like that might be called  xmaxima02:09
evilduanedesigndpkg -L maxima02:10
gentlewordsthat sounds familiar02:10
evilduanedesign^^ that command will list all files installed by a package02:10
evilduanedesignlook for the file installed in /usr/bin02:10
evilduanedesignthat is the command that will launch the application02:10
gentlewords(%i1) dpkg -L maxima02:11
gentlewordsIncorrect syntax: MAXIMA is not an infix operator02:11
gentlewordsok /usr/bin I will look02:12
gentlewordsthere is a shell script called maxima in /usr/bin   so i suppose I should click on it?02:15
evilduanedesignlooking at the maxima documentation 'maxima' is the correct command to launch the application02:15
evilduanedesignwhat error are you getting?02:15
gentlewordsI clicked on 'maxima' in /usr/bin and I think it came up running in 'terminal', but this is not how I'm comfortable using it.02:17
evilduanedesignyou are in the proggram02:17
evilduanedesignIncorrect syntax: MAXIMA is not an infix operator02:17
evilduanedesignthat is an error from the program02:17

jdillabut i started on ms dos many moons ago02:48
evilduanedesignjdilla: most stuff can be dome either way  terminal  or GUI.02:48
evilduanedesignit is just easier in IRC to give people terminal diresctions then guide them through different windows :)02:49

evilduanedesignmorning all12:34
ray_I got a couple questions12:42
MrChrisDruifray_: Shoot12:42
ray_What's the cammand for having ubuntu do a filesystem check at boot12:42
ray_at the next boot12:43
bioterrorwhy you want to do that, any specific reasons12:43
ray_I am having trouble with this hard drive12:43
ray_it can't handle things like my other hard drives12:43
ray_I am going to have to re-install, but before I do that I am going to use DBAN but before that I wanted to experiment but things aren't going well12:44
ray_I have been having other troubles as well12:45
ray_I know it's my own fault, no doubt12:45
ray_I tried installing Wine 1.312:45
ray_then I had no sound12:45
ray_then I rebooted and went into recovery mode12:46
ray_ then I had sound back12:46
ray_at somepoint between that I had to un-install wine 1.312:46
ray_then I saw that it was in Synaptic Package manager so I said to myself12:46
ray_why not install it again for fun12:47
ray_then after moving some files are I wanted to move my hard drive acted like it was going to fail12:47
ray_and my computer froze several times12:47
ray_that's why12:47
ray_I un-installed wine 1.3 since then12:48
bioterroryou can define those things in fstab12:48
ray_I am not sure that this is a bad sector problem12:50
evilduanedesignsudo shutdown -rF now12:50
ray_However, the Disk Utility said that it was perfectly fine before all this12:50
evilduanedesignshould force fsck on next boot12:50
bioterrorwhat a windows command :D12:51
ray_OK, why are the evil version version of duanedesign, lol12:51
bioterrorbecouse he is iiivyl12:51
ray_thank you12:51
ray_thank you guys12:51
MrChrisDruifYour welcome ray_ :)12:52
ray_hmm, that rebooted my computer, but there was no filesystem check12:54

bheI am looking for help getting my sound card working. It's the last hurdle I have remaining.23:07
MrChrisDruifbhe: What did you try already? It wouldn't help if we suggest things you already tried :)23:09
bhesure thing. first goal was getting someone's attention.23:10
bheubuntu 10.10 minimal install.23:10
MrChrisDruifbhe: If someone knows the answer he/she will respond :)23:10
MrChrisDruifIt's how we work, but with such a general problem, it's difficult to help :)23:10
MrChrisDruif(I'm not sure if I can help thou, but I'll try nonetheless)23:11
bheI do not have external speakers. I only have a usb headset, might complicate things. I installed ALSA Mixer. My sound card is recognized as Realtek (what it is).23:11
bhea) i know there's a console command for alsa to test speakers, as I don't have flash installed to go play video, and no music either23:11
MrChrisDruifbhe: aplay, yes23:12
bheso simply invoking aplay, without params should stream sound?23:13
bheaplay -l, gives me: card 1: Headset [HP Digital Stereo Headset], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]23:15
szczurbhe, speaker-test -c 2 will test stereo channels23:15
szczuryou should hear white noise like in not tuned radio23:16
bheheadset as well?23:16
MrChrisDruifbhe: No, you should select a sound file to play :P23:16
bhedon't have one handy.23:17
bheu know of system sound file?23:17
MrChrisDruifWith aplay that is bhe, sorry to get the misconception...23:17
bheoh gotcha23:17
MrChrisDruifszczur: could you take over? I really need to get something done and then be off to bed23:17
szczuralso check in alsa mixer if MAster or PCM isn't muted [MM]23:18
bheregardless, don't worry bout me, get yourself some Zzzzz23:18
szczurif it is, press M to unmute it23:18
MrChrisDruifThanks bhe :) (I don't want to leave people stranded here :))23:20
bheno, thank you for acknowledging me!23:20
bheszcur, the speaker-test gives me nada23:20
szczurbhe, check alsamixer if there's Master or PCM muted23:21
szczuralsamixer is working, right?23:21
bhewell the headphone option is at 0023:23
bhebut it's not muted, and im not porvided the option of raising it23:23
bhethere are 3 sound cards available in the f6 menu23:24
szczurwhat about PCM?23:24
szczurcan you provide a screenshot23:24
bhepcm is maxed out23:24
bheand not muted23:24
bhelikewise for master23:25
bhefirst i need to establish a test case to prove it's not working.23:26
bheshould i try oss23:28
szczurhave you disabled integrated soundcard if there's any? run alsamixer again and press F6. Choose your USB soundcard and check everything again23:33
szczurstill searching solutions23:33
bheszcur: know of a lightweight Media Player?23:34
szczurohh, i'm using moc but it is terminal based (if it is a problem to you). i use deadbeef too23:35
trinikronobhe: hopefully this can help https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingSoundProblems23:35
trinikronolots of stuff to try in there23:36
bhethx trini, I guess i failed to mention im using xfce4 not gnome. much of the gui stuff doesn't translate to me23:37
trinikronowell say you if you got it working bhe23:44
trinikronowhen i got a lot of trouble with the sound i ended up finding a old pci card i had and that sorted out all my sound problems23:44
xycloMy internet connection (Verizon in NY)  is extremely low now. I pay for 3Mb/s. I get under 1Mb/s. When I call they say they can only troubleshoot in Win and OSX or whatever apple's is called. Are there any settings to improve connection? I bet it is their crappy service, but I want to know if I can do something. I can take this to another channel if you deem it unsuitable.23:46
johnny77xyclo: how many computers are connected?23:48
bhetrinikrono: still no luck, not giving up yet.23:48
bheI've had this sound card working in full ubuntu install23:49
trinikronowell at least you know for sure the sound card itself is working23:49
xyclojust 123:50
xyclojohnny77, just 123:50
trinikronobhe: can you try to hook up the normal speakers23:51
trinikronoand then you try the usb headset thing after23:51
bheno speakers to try :(23:52
johnny77xyclo: are you then connected directly to the cable modem?23:52
bhebut I think I need to switch the priority or the sounds cards.23:52
trinikronobhe: those usb headsets are very different23:53
trinikronocant you at least find a normal headset?23:53
xyclonow through wifi23:53
xycloIt used to work and I know how to do it for the most part, johnny7723:54
xycloBut I do not know firewalls, ports, those kkinds of things23:54
johnny77xyclo: I'm just trying to get an understanding of your setup to see if I can help you.23:54
johnny77xyclo: do you have a router or is your modem wireless? I'm just wondering if other have "borrowed" your wireless.23:56
xyclojohnny77, no problem, I also want to explain :)23:56
xyclomodem-router combo.23:57
xycloI recently changed the password23:57
