CalimeroTeknik!pkgfile grub-install.real00:38
Jordan_UCalimeroTeknik: grub-install.real is part of an (IMHO) ugly hack used for wubi. You should only see anything about grub-install.real if you have the package "lupin-support" installed, and that should only be installed if you used wubi to install Ubuntu so it's odd that you're seeing it. Do you have lupin-support installed?00:38
dejan_why when I try to save document (html) that is in the www folder anoying popup comes saying that cant backup filer overwrite? i am using bluefish pls how to avoid this?00:38
CalimeroTeknikoh. strange !00:38
mickster04CalimeroTeknik: when you say you are chrooted?00:39
CalimeroTeknikI booted a livecd00:39
CalimeroTeknikmounted /dev/sda7 that contains ubuntu to /mnt (it has no /boot partition)00:39
mickster04CalimeroTeknik: ok00:39
CalimeroTeknikmounted -o bind /dev /proc and /sys to /mnt00:39
mickster04CalimeroTeknik: just checking, :p00:39
CalimeroTeknikchroot /mnt00:39
CalimeroTeknikthen grub-install /dev/sda700:39
CalimeroTeknikand it says that00:39
edbiandejan_, The www folder is not writeable by your user.00:40
CalimeroTeknikthat's a normal install on ext4 on /dev/sda700:40
mickster04CalimeroTeknik: i figured you would want to just install it to sda? not a prticular number00:40
dejan_edbian: this is so annoying and I must save there often because i am making changes to some webpages00:40
CalimeroTeknikmickster04, not really, because I will chainload it00:40
dejan_edbian: how can I fix this please ?00:40
mickster04CalimeroTeknik: very good00:40
CalimeroTeknikanyway, the problem is the same, file not found00:40
CalimeroTeknik(whether I use /dev/sda or /dev/sda7 as argument)00:41
edbiandejan_, Would you like the fix, or the explanation or both?00:41
lwizardlthe url for the spam news does 40400:41

Scunizi_Using Nautilus "Connect to server" I can connect to my NAS using samba protocol.. but when I go to Places Network the server doesn't show up there at all.. now... sometimes it does... why is this?00:42
ActionParsnipserg27475024: and the output of:  lsmod    Thanks00:42
poiteeAnyone able to help with samba and win7 before I off myself?00:43
edbiandejan_, The first command makes the group owner you, the second command makes the owner and the group owner able to read/write/execute and forbids anybody else from editing hte files00:43
GunniActionParsnip i can't connect it to the internet, anything built in?00:43
dejan_lwizardl: thanks :)00:43
dejan_edbian: it says no such file of dir00:43
ActionParsnipScunizi_: the thing you connected to will be in the left panel and should also appear on the desktop00:43
edbiandejan_, Where are these files?00:43
dejan_edbian: um its in var yep let me check00:43
mickster04poitee: i think suicide is a bit of an extreme reaction, give us some more insight into your problem00:43
jeniawhat's this ratelimit.c file? Often, when I start a new video on SMPlayer or Pause/Unpause it, the entire screen becomes black'n'white and stays that way. When I look at /var/log/messages file after that, it always says pulseaudio: ratelimit.c: [some #] of events suppressed.00:43
ActionParsnipGunni: you can use iwconfig to define the connection00:43
Scunizi_ActionParsnip: after connecting yes.. prior to that Places>Network can't see it..00:43
jribedbian: no read access for www-data?00:43
edbiandejan_, try this instead.  sudo chown -R root:<userName> /var/www00:44
poiteeAlready apt-got samba... I can see the samba server on win7 but cannot browse or connect to shares...00:44
edbianjrib, oh is that supposed to happen... mmmm00:44
dejan_edbian: they are in var/www :(00:44
edbiandejan_, I might have been wrong, hang on a second00:44
lwizardlanyone know the release date for 11.04 ? the daily beta seems flakey hehe. And I want to see if my audio is fixed in the release00:44
ActionParsnipScunizi_: not sure then. You can add the device permanently in nautilus by making it a bookmark which is in the connect to server dialogue00:44
mickster04poitee: have you had a look at editing /etc/default/smb (possibly /samba rather than smb) and the config there?00:44
ActionParsniplwizardl: ask in #ubuntu+100:44
edbianjrib, Should we add him to www-data group?  Or make the files owned by www-data instead of root?00:44

CalimeroTeknikthis is a normal install from the CD00:47
CalimeroTeknikthat error on grub-install is very strange, if .real is in wubi !00:48

mickster04poitee: uhm, yeah that may not work so well...I tried creating a writable share on a mounted hdd and it wouldn't let me, even if i set the folder to the most open settings. i think mounted partitions always have certain rights when they are mounted...00:48

shamelessn00bHi guys, I'm using ubuntu 10.10, I want a user be able to copy a file to my system remotely on just 1 folder, I want to give him ssh access but want to make sure that he can't get out of that one folder00:55
ipwnagestill not there00:55
edwardI can do it by writing a script to check proc but I was hoping there was an inbuilt solution00:55
Jordan_UCalimeroTeknik: It should. It's completely bizarre that you have wubi's grub-install though.00:55
CalimeroTeknikyes, and that's part of the reasons why I want to chainload ubuntu00:56

SeanfHey, I"m trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 on a computer, I'm at the 'Who are you?' stage but the forward button isn't available.01:05
edbianSeanf, What did you type for a username ?01:05
komotive_what you need to do is set the network options to nat mode if you do not have a dhcp service locally01:05
edbianSeanf, the username field must be all lower case01:05
edbianSeanf, (They should really mention that in the installer)01:06
Seanfok thanks01:06
Seanflet me try that01:06
=== Guest15386 is now known as DarkDevil
trickkomotive_: im a bit of a noob at this stuff, and that sounds difficult01:06
komotive_if you do have dhcp then you can use the other mode ...01:06
komotive_Ok .... I'll run up min01:06
CalimeroTeknikJordan_U, that gives :  grub-pc: /usr/sbin/grub-install01:06
=== DarkDevil is now known as Guest5975
CalimeroTeknikseems normal, and yet, it's getting really unbelievable01:06
Seanfedbian, you are a lifesaver!01:06
trickkomotive_: well i have a wireless network here, and computers connecting to it are just given an ip address i think01:06
edbianSeanf, haha, just experienced01:06
trickkomotive_: does that mean i have dhcp?01:07
SeanfI've been pulling my hair out over this for hours01:07
komotive_Yep you've got it!01:07
komotive_DHCP is a go01:07
edbianSeanf, hahaa, you should have asked earlier!01:07
SeanfLater guys!01:07
komotive_So from the top tabs ..... delect <devices>01:07
trickkomotive_: great so where do i go to select it?01:07
SeanfI know01:07
SeanfI bricked my last computer trying to do that, now I can fix it xD01:08
komotive_select <network adapters>01:08
Jordan_UCalimeroTeknik: I have no idea what's happening. Please file a bug report with "ubuntu-bug grub-pc".01:08
trickkomotive_: top of what?01:08
CalimeroTeknikJordan_U, I can fix this with the ubuntu livecd nope ?01:09
CalimeroTeknikthen, updates will always fail of course01:09
komotive_( the menu bar )then use the dropdown to select01:09
trickkomotive_:  oh ok01:09
blkdghow can i tell the date on which a system was installed?01:09
komotive_so you can select nat or bridged01:10
trickkomotive_: yep and u want me to choose bridged?01:10
komotive_nat will give your machine a translated IP address for the www01:10
komotive_bridged will put it on the same as your lan01:10
trickkomotive_: ok so i should choose NAT? and do i choose 'cable connected' or not?01:11
trickcos im on wifi01:11
Jordan_UCalimeroTeknik: You can run grub-install from the liveCD environment but you don't really need to as you already should have a /boot/grub/core.img that you can load via grub legacy using the commands I gave you in #grub.01:11
edbiantrick, Choose cable connected.  The virtual machine does not have wifi (and does not care that the host OS is on wifi)01:11
CalimeroTeknikJordan_U, good point.01:11
komotive_just use bridged and it'll set everything for you ......01:11
trickoh ok01:11

komotive_you can go one better ..... install guest addins and use seemles mode01:15
edbiantrick, Ubuntu can virtualize XP on a netbook.  AWESOME.01:15
blkdgcryptodira, tell the live cd to format.01:15
jeymbjcan i send you the printscreen of the error please01:15
Jordan_Ucryptodira: Yes. Do you want to preserve the contents of /home or whipe everything?01:15
edbiancryptodira, Yeah, just tell it to use the old / as it's / and the old swap as it's swap.  The partitions will be reformatted and thus erased for you.01:15
edbianjeymbj, sure01:15
cryptodirablkdg, forgot to mention that i did NOT want to reformat...01:16

edbiantrick, running a VM is 'virtualizing' you're virtualizing XP and Ubuntu is able to do it on a netbook (which means you have modest hardware) which means Ubuntu is efficient (and that impresses me).  Clear?01:19

ActionParsnipJordan_U: the status file will show fewer packages than are actually available, its not hugely graceful01:22
Bing0blkdg, the reason I prefer not is because I can resize within natiulus.  with that said, can the presets not be modified?01:22
jeymbjis that one01:22
aeon-ltdAfflicto: you don't unless you used wubi01:22
edbianAfflicto, Just install Ubuntu over itself.  Alternatively, boot the live CD, use gparted to erase the Ubuntu partitions.  (either one achieves the same goal of removing the old Ubuntu install)01:22
edbianjeymbj, that's it01:23
Jordan_UActionParsnip: Interesting. Is there a bug report about this?01:23
aeon-ltdAfflicto: you repartition then reinstall mbr or a bootloader you'd like01:23
Afflictowhats wubi?01:23
ubottuWubi is an Ubuntu installer for Windows users that allows you to install and uninstall Ubuntu like a Windows application, in a simple and safe way. http://wubi-installer.org/support.php and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide for troubleshooting. Please  file bugs at http://launchpad.net/wubi/+filebug. For Ubuntu Maverick/10.10 http://releases.ubuntu.com/maverick/wubi.exe01:23
usl_I am a first time user of Ubuntu and linux. its easy but i dont know commands. Does anyone have commands for linux and what the do?01:23
Afflictoyes I used wubi, it was on the usb drive. while inside win xp.01:23
mickster04usl_: it's depends what you want to do?01:23
AfflictoSo.. easiest way to uninstall is gparted?01:23
edbianjeymbj, I'm not sure.  You should ask in the spanish channel01:24
komotive_@usl_ google is your friend!!01:24
blkdgBing0, doesn't look like it.01:24
edbianusl_, PM me :)01:24
edbianjeymbj, It's hard enough to figure out.  Let alone in another language.01:24
mickster04usl_: this is a support channel for people with problems, if you are just learning this probably isn't the place for you01:24
Jordan_UAfflicto: If you installed Ubuntu via wubi then remove it using Add/Remove programs in Windows.01:24
jeymbji have to mention that i am having that error 127 after i upgrade fro, 10.04 to the 10.10 maverick01:24

cryptodiraActionParsnip, that is an interesting feature.... one that i would not have noticed... so in the interests of gracefully fixing 10.04, how can i figure out why the 10.10 upgrade hangs?01:24
Afflictook thanks01:24
ActionParsnipusl_: nobody is born knowing the commands01:24
usl_mickster04,  is there any channel well i can learn?01:25
usl_ActionParsnip, true!01:25

komotive_@usl_ try youtube as well ...01:25

LnxGnomeEmuAlert, Cron runs commands for you.  if those commands produce output to STDOUT, then the system by default tries to mail the output to you.  That requires some kind of mail delivery system.  postfix is mail system.02:19

drobole_cesurasean: thats not a problem, unless you want something else there. The thing is, grub doesn't change what disk your BIOS jumps to. BIOS always only jumps to one disk, if it finds grub there the rest goes well03:58
drobole_if you have grub on another disk as well, it doesnt matter03:58

MatrixHello! can anybody tell me how I can write hindi using transliteration in ubuntu 10.1004:02

ActionParsnipmouse-_: you can use the mniimal ISO then install openbox and get an OS for near enough 1Gb04:05
drobole_ok then the grub in use is the one at /dev/sdb04:05
mouse-_yeah, see, it doesn't work with the non-minimal ISO install04:05
hiexpousually /dev/sdb is a usb device04:05
mouse-_which is strange04:05

mouse-_i'm not going to argue the point04:06
ActionParsnipmouse-_: also use smaller apps like abiword + gnumeric instead of openoffice04:06
drobole_cesurasean: so you have installed grub on /dev/sdb1 or something?04:06

ActionParsnipcesurasean: mount   will tell you which partition is /boot04:08
drobole_ok you mount it (if its not already) and you cd to it and delete the /root directory there i guess. not an expert on this though04:08
ActionParsnipcesurasean: I see04:08
ActionParsnipcesurasean: all I can recommend is mount the partitions to see which kernels in the displayed grub match the partition contents04:09
cesuraseanim currently booted into my system04:09
cesuraseanhow do i know which /boot, off which partition was read?04:10
drobole_he said / is on /dev/sdb04:10
xanguayshi: if you have your home in another partiton, yes04:10
cesuraseani think sdb, and sdb2 have it04:10

drobole_what directory is sda5 mounted on?04:12
gorgonzolahey, i'm getting 404'ed trying to install some packages from lucid backports. Unlikely that the repo is down, right? what can cause this behaviour in apt?04:12

cesuraseansda2 is /media/SYSTEM RESERVED04:13
Ben65cesurasean: check which /boot has the current kernel04:13

ssbplsdrobole_:do i have to boot the new kernel in the /boot ,and if i want to test my module ,do i have to start the new kernel and test it ?04:46
drobole_ssbpls: umm, thats a advanced topic. Basically you write the module, copy it into the source tree where the drivers it, then you have to add a line in some config file to instruct make to compile it into the kernel. You better find a good tutorial on the net. its hard to explain here04:46
ActionParsnipAmitabha: what is the name of the file and where is it located and I can give a command (both are VERY case sensitive)04:46
muvague_dude: Most likely no programs absolutely require anything from the home folder. So no, nothing will crash.04:46
Nisstyrethe / partition is the most important04:46

roasted__Question - I have Ubuntu on a Windows domain. I somehow changed my default shell to something other than /bin/bash. My terminal prompt shows up as $ on my domain account now.

ur2d2rreading th emanual hasn't helped06:16
noonianur2d2r, you need to mount the iso for the additions from the os you are virtualizing06:16
iflema!grub2 | ZacLnxNewb grub should list the recovery partition and youmay need to /join ##windows06:17
ubottuZacLnxNewb grub should list the recovery partition and youmay need to /join ##windows: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub206:17

FrozenFireIs it relatively safe to enlarge an ext4 partition which houses my /home? Of course, I'd have to do it from a Live CD, but I don't really have to worry *too much* about data loss, do I? I have backups of essential files, but I'd be a bit choked if I lost my data (new torrents, etc).06:29
ActionParsnipFrozenFire: should be ok06:30
jamiewanFrozenFire, you should be rite mate, not a problem for me ever06:30
FrozenFireI had seen a forum post about ext4 resizing being decidedly broken for 9.04's Live CD. That's fixed in 10.10, yes?06:31
ZacLnxNewbActionParsnip:  The problem only happened because of ubuntu's grub boot loader06:32
ActionParsnipZacLnxNewb: you are stil installing windows06:32
ZacLnxNewbActionParsnip: I think I've found the answer though06:32
ZacLnxNewbActionParsnip:  The problem is entirely related to ubuntu06:32
FrozenFireZacLnxNewb: I think what he's getting at is that the problem is with Windows not playing nicely with dual-booting, and thus it's not something that the channel provides support for.06:33
FrozenFireWhile it may be a result of something Ubuntu *did*, it's not a problem caused by Ubuntu directly.06:33

ur2d2rActionParsnip: I rebooted ubuntu (in vbox) and tried to follow the instructions in the video but, the iso image for guest additions is not coming up on the desktop. Please advise?06:41
ur2d2rActionParsnip: The reason why I downloaded the guest additions is bc someone here said it would fix my VirtualBox screen from a window to fullscreen.06:43
tsyj2007ur2d2r: does't work06:44
tsyj2007ur2d2r: does't it work?06:44
ur2d2rActionParsnip: when I use CTRL + F it switches to fullscreen but it is still a window with a 5" black coarder around it.06:44
ur2d2r<tsyj2007> no06:45

AcrimoniousGoronI've never installed anything other Linux distributions in VBox but installing the guest additions has fixed that issue about 95% of the time06:49
parasolu need to install the guest addon06:49
parasoland then reboot, then you can resize it to any resolution u want06:49
AcrimoniousGoronyeah if you haven't rebooted the machine you have to do that06:50
AcrimoniousGoronvirtual machine that is06:50
ur2d2rI installed the guest add on but I haven't been able to figure out how to install or "Use" it.06:50

tsyj2007ur2d2r: parasol is right06:52
HF_acidur2d2r: you have to install it on the virtual machine, not the host06:52
AcrimoniousGoronur2d2r: when you're in the virtual OS, the guest additions mounts as a CD. There is an installer on the "CD". You install that06:52
ur2d2rok how do I check if its there? if i go to installed packages it shows up?06:52
ur2d2rI installed it through the os on the06:53
AcrimoniousGoronur2d2r: you cant install it on the host machine, like acid said. I'm not sure how to check06:53
ur2d2rI didnt install through host06:53
AcrimoniousGoronur2d2r: if a cd was mounted in the virtual os and you ran the guest additions installer it should be installed06:53
ur2d2rthe only os i have on the machine is ubuntu 10.1006:53
AcrimoniousGoronur2d2r: all you should have to do is reboot for it to take effect06:53
parasolyou have to install the guest addon, one of the menu on the your virtual box unbuntu window, it will mount as a cd, open it, and there should be a notice that says install script notice, its like an autorun file. just click that06:54

The system load of the server is over 400, and it's pretty much unusable. The RAID is a two disc mirror of 250GB. Vaguely, how long should I expect the rebuild to take.. ?09:07

MosselmaniacOur company needs a webserver, a LAMP-installation, for internal use, so within the network domain. We developed with an external company a web application, which is currently running on a development server on their side. Now we want to migrate the application internally.

coz_visual1ce,  I dont know if the actual   "gnome3"  is going to be better than that10:07
coz_visual1ce,  rather ubun tu 11.0410:07
coz_visual1ce,   so ubuntu 11.04  will have compiz instead of mutter as the compositor for the netbook edition and the version of compiz on 11.04  will be compiz 0.9.x10:07

Amozopenbees, can you ping for example, google.com?11:03
Amozfrimend, optical disk drives11:03
callaghanfrimend: to me it sounds like a problem with your graphics card... since it happens on different os', it has something to do with hardware, maybe even a temperature problem11:03
frimendI have tried touching it after, neither ram, gpu or cpu is especially hot.11:04
frimendcan the cpu / motherboard be the error?11:05
frimendor is ram/graphics card much more likely?11:05
callaghanfrimend: I even had one case of a bad PSU that caused the graphics card to black out randomly, causing in a computer crash11:06

dkamHi guys - trying to mount an NFS share with pretty default values - get "mount(2) invalid argument"12:57
Fjodordkam: Which arguments do you give to mount?12:57
mix22891give me a women after midnight12:57
dkamFjodor:  mount -t nfs <ip>:/path /local/path -v12:58
theprototypeI really wish i could figure out if the overclocking of my GPU will carry over from Win7 to ubuntu dual booted. From what i've heard, some methods flash the bios on the card itself, which i would think should most definately carry over.12:58
dkammount.nfs: mount(2): Invalid argument12:58
dkammount.nfs: an incorrect mount option was specified12:58
dkamFjodor: sudo naturally.12:58
dkamFjodor: same options work on another host12:59
theprototypei may then need to use the drivers from nvidia, since i can't find the specifics on the drivers downloaded from ubuntu. Another project. Yay!12:59
Fjodordkam: -v just gives the version. I don't think that it accepts other options with -v12:59
Fjodordkam: Sorry, wrong info12:59
dkamFjodor: without -v I get mount.nfs: an incorrect mount option was specified12:59
jribtheprototype: did you see if nvidia-settings gets you information about the card you want?12:59
dkamFjodor: yeah - it's verbose12:59
jribdkam: what are you actually typing?13:00
dkamsudo mount -t nfs /var/www/booko.com.au/booko/public/images/covers/13:00
theprototypei can know everything about my card, even what i can overclock it up to without overheating or worrying about anything. Figuring out if it will cause issues under ubuntu is another deal. Haven't used nvidia-settings, but i've google searched the info and found people that used the software and had images.13:01
Fjodordkam: Is nfs-common installed on the machine?13:01
jribdkam: hmm... try dropping final '/' in the paths?13:01
bobo123i installed a driver on linux but when i do modprobe name_of_driver, it says device not found, can it be because the device is not on the computer?13:02

Dr_Willisbobo123:  what sort of device?13:03
jribdkam: does it work if you don't pass "-t nfs" explicitly?13:03
bobo123Dr_Willis, i'm not sure, a friend of mine told me can you try to install this driver on linux, i said i will try i made, make ,make install, everything went ok, but when i do modprobe i get device not found13:04

decafrom where can i add or delete programs shortcuts at the applications bar ?13:05
bobo123Dr_Willis, yes when i do modprobe name_of_module13:05
Dr_Willisdeca:  the alacarte menu editor program can let you edit the menus. or right click on themenu i think..13:05
Fjodordeca: Right-clicking on the menu should have an edit option13:06

decaDr_Willis thank u but with right click only let me add shortcut to the main panel13:06
Dr_Willisdeca:  open the applicatuions menu, right click in there.. or just run 'alacarte' if you wan tto edit your menus.. (its the same program both ways)13:08

dkamFjodor: yeah - good point.13:23
dkamSo - I need a v3 client13:23
jribdkam: not sure if you missed it, you need to use nfsvers=3, not nfsvers-313:23

elteseHi. Im having some problem that is preventing me from going in to the world of linux fulltime. Since I'm a pretty big CS player I need to use an anti-cheat called EAC. However I have no way of making this work in wine. For my programming I use virtualbox. Could I possibly do the same with this? (You get banned if eac fails to authenticate thats why I havent simply tried it)13:26
nyx0anyone can help me with some advice about a forum that was and is constantly  flooded?13:26
jribFjodor, dkam: I have 0 experience with nfs13:26
dkamFjodor: thanks - error has now moved to portmap permissions on the server! So getting somewhere13:27
Fjodorjrib: Ok, but I also need to get going and you seemed to have some points ;-)13:27
jribFjodor: sure, I'll be around a bit more13:28
Fjodorjrib: :-)13:28
dkamjrib: Humiliation. 1. /etc/hosts.allow on the server wasn't configured with the host.  2. had to force version 3 - even though the other client doesn't require that.13:30
dkamjrib: but - original client is Ubuntu 10.04 and new client is 10.1013:31
dkamjrib: so - the default must have changed.13:31
dkamjrib: thanks for your help13:31

[TK]D-Fenderhedin: That is just a web-script, not an "app"14:12
BluesKajkothaguy_ubuntu, do the partitions show up in  nautilus/places ? if so then you should be able to copy from one partiion to the other if you have permissions setup to do so.14:12

nn102400ruan, All desktop based systems use some sort of network handling setup. Network manager makes it very easy to set up your network connection how ever you want it. It does all the back end work for you. But if you like doing that back end work all your self. Go ahead, kill network manager, learn about /etc/network/interfaces file and set up manual configuration based management.14:28

ROsmanovkothaguy_ubuntu, http://wellkin.info/ano/14:52
Pumpkin-Ascavasaion: the IRC server needs to be able to make the connection to your machine running identd (TCP/113). So if you are behind NAT, and not port forwarding TCP/113, it won't work.14:52
kothaguy_ubuntuROsmanov, :i cant paste in pastebin also14:52
AscavasaionPumpkin-: So in Firestarter I should open port 113?14:52

ROsmanovkothaguy_ubuntu, I have never used clamtk/clamav. I guess clamav blocks connections. I'd turn it to scan on-demand, since IMHO Ubuntu is safe enough to get rid of antiviruses, until U don't send something to Windows users(U'd probably need clamav just to check emails to forward emails ...)15:05
nn102400duckstar, if its not the format try the -frameskip option to speed up the sound.15:05

ROsmanovkothaguy_ubuntu, windows viruses are nothing for Ubuntu15:08
jfcaronnishant: Nothing specifically, I found that I mostly use my netbook while it is plugged in, so power isn't an issue for me.  Apparently Leeenux (which I use - Ubuntu variant) does have extra power-related stuff though.15:08

Roasted_Question - Using an Ubuntu machine on a Windows domain, I somehow managed to change my default terminal to sh. I want it to be back to bash. I issued the chsh command to change it, but it failed because my domain user (obviously) does not reside in /etc/passwd. This is a problem because this happens on my account to EVERY Ubuntu computer on the domain. How can I fix it?15:12
nishantyes jfcaron thanks I was thinking the same and was wondeing why it had such a different GUI than desktop without much advantgae15:12
jfcaronnishant: The netbook GUI seems to be aimed at the "internet appliance" style of netbook user, who just wants one-click internets, but not much other functionality.  It's also difficult to customize.15:13

Roasted_ROsmanov, didn't work.15:17
speedyafter desktop loads seems fine then all off the borders window mangaer stops then locks me out of doing anything short of a cold reboot bummer15:17
ROsmanovRoasted_, then "source ~/.bashrc" should change your default shell instantly. However, for instance, sshd can load ~/.profile or ~/.bash_profile or some other rc-file15:17
Roasted_ROsmanov, what I dont understand is how it triggers on WHEREVER my account logs in.15:17
Roasted_ROsmanov, I thought I could just delete the profile entry and I'd be good. But I logged on a different PC and it was still there. the sh is such a pita too when Im doing terminal.15:18
prodigy0987fixxxermet: Maverick has the ntp packages as well, will that do?15:18
jribRoasted_: you're using likewise open?15:19
Roasted_jrib, yes.15:19
ROsmanovRoasted_, I'd quote "man bash": When bash is invoked as an interactive login shell, or as a non-interactive shell with the --login option, it first reads  and  executes15:19
ROsmanov       commands  from  the  file  /etc/profile, if that file exists.  After reading that file, it looks for ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login, and15:19
ROsmanov       ~/.profile, in that order, and reads and executes commands from the first one that exists and is readable.15:19
jribROsmanov: isn't there an associated config file for likewise open where you can set users' shell?15:19
Roasted_jrib, the thing is, this changed after I ran a command in terminal under my domain user name.15:20
jribRoasted_: what command?15:20
Roasted_jrib, I was testing out a command to mount my share to gvfs. I ran gvfs-mount smb://server/users/#()15:20
anubarack_guys is there an alternative to gyazio for ubuntu ? or at least something similar15:20
Roasted_jrib, and bam. all downhill from there.15:20
Roasted_jrib, the command was suggested to me by a user here, as #() was supposedly a wild card for whoever was actively logged in.15:20
Roasted_jrib, but it obviously went south on me15:20
fixxxermetprodigy0987: I want the latest version, as it has some new options15:20
ROsmanovjrib, ~/.profile should keep user's settings. Mine loads ~/.bashrc15:21
prodigy0987fixxxermet: okie-doke, then you might be able to download it from http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/ntp and install it with 'dpkg -i'15:21
jribROsmanov: but by the time any of that is sourced, it's too late.  The user already has a shell.  No?15:21
prodigy0987fixxxermet: if that doesn't work (due to dependencies or whatnot), i'd install from source15:22
Roasted_jrib, do you think what I did is reversible?15:22
=== toto is now known as Guest52476
jribRoasted_: well I don't see how it could possibly change the shell.  But did you check if you've a setting for bash as users' shell in the config file for likewise open?15:22

Roasted_jrib, its JUST my account, which is where I ran the command.15:23

jribRoasted_: I found this mention: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1569865 I'm not familiar with likwise open, but I assume lwconfig just modifies a config file somewhere.  Or maybe you can query with lwconfig what current settings are15:24

Roasted_jrib, because I dont know how to set my domain user to have sudo rights, so I cant run sudo commands. So is local administrator on the ubuntu machine okay????15:39
jribRoasted_: your questions are my first exposure to likewise open, so don't know much.  Do you know if these settings are stored in the user's home or in some other way?  What are these .reg files that are always referred to?  What does lwconfig actually do?15:40
jfcaronWhen I am using apt-get interactively, is there a way to direct the output to a file while still being able to tell it [Y/n] when it asks for confirmation?15:41
ZacLnxNewbmr_chris:  Okay, I have 222 GB of hard drive space to allocate15:41
Roasted_jrib, I'm not sure what lwconfig does. I'm new to likewise open as well. I ran with it after I heard canonical recommends it for AD integration as we are flirting with introducing Ubuntu to "the wild" here at work. I do not believe settings are locally stored because I have deleted my profile dozens of times and logged into completely different computers with the exact same results, but again, only under MY username.15:41

ZacLnxNewbmr_chris:  Install a fresh install of windows 7 as the primary operating system, using the recovery partition15:42
ROsmanovRoasted_, I didn't use likewise open. But for "sudo" rights in ubuntu user should be listed in /etc/sudoers15:42
jribRoasted_: this last link http://www.likewise.com/community/index.php/forums/viewthread/932/#2787 has Jonathan suggesting su - root for the lwconfig command and then running lw-ad-cache delete-all "on the client" which I suppose means "as the normal user"15:42

edbianjfcaron, If you don't want to then do this: sudo apt-get install <something> >file.txt   what gets saved? I've never tried it15:43
jribRoasted_: do you know how to add users to groups?  Should be able to just add them to the "admin" group.  Sorry, when Jonathan says "su - root", on ubuntu, you can read that as "run with sudo"15:43
ZacLnxNewbmr_chris:  I want to give 65 GB for the windows partition, 14 for ubuntu, and 1 GB for swap, and the rest will be "Storage"15:43
Roasted_jrib, it's not. It deletes the slash and makes it DOMAINmy_user15:43
edbianjfcaron, btw dpkg and apt keep logs in  /var/log (they log everything you do using each of them respectively)15:43
