HorizonXPi'm trying to change some ubuntu one preferences, but it's giving me a gnomekeyring.IOError when I run ubuntuone-preferences from the commmand line via SSH00:00
Cody3290I don't have a box. Mentioned earlier that I "borrow" internet from a neighbor00:00
ElvewynHoly crap, I'm not running any anti virus OR a firewall, am I safe? I heard linux is harder to break into...00:00
b0g4nk1dah. Do u leech the connection with WiFi?00:00
Jordan_U!virus | Elvewyn00:01
ubottuElvewyn: Antivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus00:01
Cody3290Yes, I am using wifi00:01
Jordan_U!firewall | Elvewyn00:01
ubottuElvewyn: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Firestarter/Gufw (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE) also exist.00:01
b0g4nk1d@Elvewyn Linux is fairly hard to break into, you don't need an antivirus but a firewall certainly helps if you want one00:01
Cody3290oh00:01
b0g4nk1d@Elvewyn Firestarter is a good choice00:01
Cody3290ufw is already installed00:01
Cody3290I thought I needed to download it.00:02
ElvewynI was thinking about getting a hardware one, in case I buy more PC's. Mine's anncient00:02
b0g4nk1dit comes preinstalled with ubuntu @Cody329000:02
Cody3290Does it have a GUI, or should I check out that "firewall configuration" program too?00:02
BismilSohbet7414hello00:02
Cody3290I'm not that good with the terminal (yet)00:02
BismilSohbet7414hi00:02
Slayeram using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and all of a sudden am unable to play Youtube videos, I get the message adobe flash plugin has crashed.. Pls help00:03
droboleElvewyn: I guess a virus wouldn't be able to do much without root access, once it has, AV wont help you :p00:03
b0g4nk1dtry the GUI frontend - ufw on my system appears to be some sort of iptables manager daemon00:03
b0g4nk1di did man ufw00:03
ElvewynI've only been using ubuntu for a month or two...00:03
Cody3290a month or two, and you only just realized you neglected to install a firewall/AV?00:03
Cody3290lol00:03
b0g4nk1dI use KlamAV00:04
Cody3290That's one of the first things that I do when I get a windows computer (not that it does me any good)00:04
ElvewynNo, but I though I didn't need it.00:04

ElvewynI think so...00:07
ElvewynOr at least fined.00:07

milamber sk_ what do you mean by panel? the panel should be visible on all desktops00:49
pooltableor use00:49
ActionParsnipalphonso: there is no lucid ppa on that server: http://ppa.launchpad.net/gnome3-team/gnome3/ubuntu/dists/00:49
psusi\share, umm... the calculator?00:50
\sharepsusi: but for this.00:50
ActionParsnip\share: in what output?00:50
psusi\share, huh?00:50
\shareActionParsnip: a tool to convert KB to MB MB to KB GB to KB .00:51
\share.00:51
\shareetc00:51
alphonsoactionparsnip: that is the server that the apt line seems to want to use.. not sure how to re-direct it00:51
chibihogoshinoanyway i can switch bluetooth profiles ?  like from headset to audio sync when i get a call and then back ?00:51
psusi\share, yea... use the calculator and multiply or divide by 102400:51
SX486so, this question doesn't particularly pertain to ubuntu, but BasicLinux 3.5, I just don't know where else to go for help..00:51
\sharepsusi: thats not what I want.00:51
psusi\share, then what do you want?00:52
\sharepsusi: read above00:52
nameless`SX486: don't ask to ask, just ask00:52
ActionParsnip\share: http://egret.net/kb__mb.htm00:52
pooltable /share what do you want?00:52
\shareActionParsnip: yeah I know that site lol I would like a tool (offline)00:52
sk_milamber: so I have the default panel on a screen. I want to move it to another location, like on top instead of at the bottom; but ultimately to another screen without having to repopulate the a new panel with all the same buttons. Is this possible?00:52
psusi\share, what do you think I was answering?00:52
alketHi, I just installed Firefox RC from mozilla daily ppa, after 20min my computer froze and i rebooted, but now it is promting me for password (even though i set it to autologin) and it is not recognising my password ??00:52
ActionParsnipSX486: its based on slackware, try a slackware channel00:53
iso3how do i determine what user a program is running under00:53
nameless`\share: can't you just use your head to divide or multiply per 100 ?00:53
muellialket: maybe it just hibernated or so and asks you to unlock the screen..?00:53
\sharenameless`: cant you just shut up00:53
ActionParsnipalket: boot to root recovery mode and reset your password there with:  passwd foo     replace foo with your username00:53
muelliiso3: i.e. ps aux | grep $program00:53
Cody3290Is there a program to make softwarecenter download more quickly, or is there a way to make it download multiple files at once?00:53
SX486Ok, so I'm on BasicLinux 3.5 and you can run X11R6, but there is no desktp so all of the X apps have to be run from one of the other terminlas (usually CTRL+ALT+F2), but I can't execute any of my apps beause I don't know what to say for display.00:53
psusiiso3, ps u00:53
nameless`iso3: ps, top, htop00:53
ActionParsnipCody3290: use torrents00:54
alketmuelli: no, i rebooted several times then00:54
Cody3290x.e00:54
alketActionParsnip: how can i do that ?00:54
Cody3290I meant from within the Software Center. I know how to torrent >.<00:54
alphonsoactionparsnip: so are you saying I can ignore that error?00:54
Cody3290Speaking of torrents: Is uTorrent better t han the one that comes with ubuntu?00:54
droboleSX486: try 000:54
nameless`\share: i'm just asking, give a little bit of context, is it for a bash script ? C program ? command line tool ? try to think a little bit before insulting anyone00:54
ActionParsnip\share: could make a script I guess00:54
ActionParsnipalket: hold shift at boot00:55
Cody3290By which i mean "Transmission BitTorrent Program"00:55
Cody3290Client, rather00:55
bastidrazorCody3290: transmission or even deluge blows uTorrent out of the water00:55
SX486And I only run it because it runs on my 48600:55
Cody3290Got it.00:55
ActionParsnipalphonso: there isn't support for Lucid on the PPA you added.00:55
\sharenameless`: that wasn't a insult sorry if you got offended00:55
milambersk_: in 10.04 the panel default is the top. when you switch workspaces the panel should be the same. to change the properties right click on the panel and then properties00:55
ActionParsnipSX486: its offtopic here, ask in a slackware channel00:55
pooltableqbittorrent use here00:55
alketActionParsnip: Shift is not working ?00:56
ActionParsnipalket: hold it as soon as the system starts to boot, before the boot splash00:56
pooltablealket nedd a new keyboard?00:56
pooltableneed00:56
SX486ActionParsnip: Do you know of a Slackware channel?00:56
visual1cei have my default browser set to google chrome in preferences -> preferred applications but for some reason, firefox is opening when i click on a link00:57
Jordan_USX486: ##slackware00:57
nameless`SX486: /j #slackware00:57
alketActionParsnip: pooltable : I tried again, it is not working00:57
ActionParsnipSX486: #slackware would be a safe bet.....00:57
ActionParsnipalket: what is the output of: lsb_release -d    please00:58
mickster04visual1ce: that may be linked to the program the links are in, if you are clicking them in say xchat, it may well have it's own preferences for that00:58
alketActionParsnip: I can't login, but my release is Ubuntu 10.1000:58
pooltablealket what  key?00:58
visual1ceevolution but even just .desktop url files00:58
Cody3290When I scan for drivers, it tells me "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system."00:58
IrreducibilisHow to use pure-ftpd? I dont understand the documentation00:59
ActionParsnipalket: shift will show grub, as soon as the system POST beeps, hold shift and don't let go00:59
IrreducibilisAnd like, I can access it, but it shows no files00:59
Irreducibilisshouldnt it show my home directory00:59
Cody3290Filezilla is easier to use00:59
drobolewhats the best IRC client for gnome (except irssi)00:59
Cody3290o.o00:59
Irreducibilisdrobole, Xchat00:59
ActionParsnipdrobole: there is no single best app for anything00:59
nameless`drobole: xchat, i guess00:59
Cody3290personally, drobole, I use chatzilla which is an addon for firefox00:59
ActionParsnipdrobole: in any OS00:59
drobolenot xchat-gnome?00:59
Cody3290I find it more extensible than Xchat00:59
ActionParsnipdrobole: none and all are best01:00
IrreducibilisCody3290, but filezilla isn't a server01:00
skullboyhow do i startx via gdm01:00
pooltablechatzilla here01:00
Cody3290There is a server and client versions, if I'm not mistaken01:00
droboleSome are bad though01:00
alphonsoactionparsnip: blasted I didn't upgrade to 10.10 b/c i heard they were going away from gnome - i didn't want to lose it.01:00
Cody3290drobole: if you want something simple to use, use Xchat01:00
ActionParsnipdrobole: your question is as intelligent as: "what is the best coloutr of the rainbow?"01:00
alketActionParsnip: No its not working with shift, this is the third time im trying01:00
IrreducibilisIsn't there a GUI ftp server for linux?01:00
Cody3290I guess he's asking for people's favorites01:00
alketpooltable: what do you mean with "what key" ?01:00
Cody3290or what we reccoment01:00
bastidrazornice01:01
ActionParsnipalket: if you are using grub2 which is default in maverick, you hold shift to see the grub menu01:01
skullboyhow do i startx via gdm01:01
droboleActionParsnip: Your wrong01:01
Cody3290reccomend, rather01:01
bastidrazorskullboy: you don't01:01
alketActionParsnip: So the chances are that I got malicious content by Mozilla Daily PPA ?01:01
visual1ceya just checked again - preferred browser is set to google chrome but when i click on a html attachment or .desktop url file firefox opens the page01:01
droboleActionParsnip: Your reply is recursively correct for any question01:01
ActionParsnipdrobole: its not, there is no single best app for anything. Each app has different abilities. Not all users requirements and tastes are identical so there will NEVER be a best01:01
pooltablealket what key is not working when you press it?01:01
IrreducibilisHow to use pure-ftpd? I dont understand the documentation and when I access it, no files show up when it says its supposed to show my home01:02
alketpooltable: Shift of course as ActionParsnip suggested01:02
ActionParsnipdrobole: so no, it only applys to "best" questions01:02
skullboybastidrazor: i mean how do i get the x session to use gdm01:02
visual1cewell chrome/chromium is always better than firefox :P ff is clunky takes a heap of memory and its interface takes up way too much real estate01:02
campeei prefer ff01:02
Cody3290i like firefox o.o01:02
CoNFuS3Danyone know why flash crashes so much on ubuntu?01:02
droboleActionParsnip: You know I cant deny that01:02
Irreducibilisfirefox has better/more addons01:02
ActionParsnipCoNFuS3D: possible conflict of plugins01:03
campeeCoNFuS3D: the newest version of flash crashes frequently on all platforms.01:03
pooltablesorry did you tray caps lock then key then caps lock off?01:03
visual1ceive never liked ff... its interface has always peeved me01:03
campeeCoNFuS3D: it's a known issue with Adobe.01:03
CoNFuS3Doh, that sucks then01:03
Cody3290Oh, Irreducibilis: http://filezilla-project.org/01:03
campeeCoNFuS3D: instead of closing your browser just try reloading the page. that tends to fix it.01:03
visual1cechrome is so much faster01:03
skullboyCoNFuS3D: what version are you runing01:03
Cody3290Filezilla has a server, but it's for windows only01:03
IrreducibilisCody3290, It says the server is windows only01:03
ActionParsnipdrobole: i know, hence why its a useless question. If youcan constrain it some with things you want the client to do then it is an intelligent question01:03
CoNFuS3Dof flash, or ubuntu?01:03
Cody3290So run it through wine?01:03
IrreducibilisI only care about the server part01:03
campeeCoNFuS3D: http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/flash-102-found-be-crashy01:03
Cody3290^01:03
Cody3290Run it through wine?01:03
IrreducibilisWine? I'd rather have a native solution.01:04
visual1ceit does have some advantages though - like when i use firefox to chat here it plays a noise when someone addresses me01:04
ActionParsnipCoNFuS3D: try flash 10.301:04
visual1cenot in chrome01:04
ActionParsnipCoNFuS3D: its beta and I havent tested it fully yet but seems ok01:04
visual1cebut webchat loads so much faster in chrome01:04
skullboyCoNFuS3D: what version are you runing01:04
IrreducibilisAnd I was hoping someone could just help me with pure-ftpd01:04
Cody3290True, native is always nice01:04
CoNFuS3Dflash version 10.201:04
Cody3290But this is the wrong channel, technically01:04
droboleActionParsnip: In that case I'd rephrase to "Which gnome IRC clients are bad"01:04
ActionParsnipCoNFuS3D: if your OS is 64bit then you can try the 64bit flash ppa01:04
Cody3290#ubuntu-offtopic would be better01:04
JdGordonany ideas why klogd will refuse to start if i have the / on a usb disk (the same filesystem works fine from a nfs mount). "start-stop-daemon: Unable to start /sbin/klogd: Permission denied (Permission denied)" permissions are fine though01:05
IrreducibilisIs there even anyone in there who can help?01:05
ActionParsnipdrobole: none are bad, some have fewer features but if they give what is required then they are not bad are they01:05
Cody3290There might be.01:05
alketActionParsnip: I can log in with Ctrl+alt+ F1 with my current password , how can I kill the login screen ?01:05
nameless`drobole: flipping a stupid question doesn't make it intelligent :)01:05
skullboyjdgordon: sudo01:05
Cody3290Never know unless you ask.01:05
v3ctorIrreducibilis: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PureFTP01:05
Cody3290Or wait long enough for someone to help you in here01:06
JdGordonskullboy: sudo is not needed in the boot script...01:06
ActionParsnipalket: I'd grab another keyboard, or try the other shift button#01:06
Cody3290>.<01:06
Jordan_Udrobole: If you insist on getting peoples opinions join #ubuntu-bots and ask "what is the best irc client">01:06
Cody3290lol01:06
JdGordongnome is also refusing to start, dont know why... * Starting GNOME Display Manager...                                                  [fail]01:06
pooltableis it the sso login?01:07
ActionParsnipdrobole: why not try a few for YOURSELF and evaluate. You are using an OS which promotes freedom and choice, yet you wade into an irc channel and ask strangers what you should use. Smacks of Microsoft don't you think??01:07
droboleJordan_U: A bad client is a client with bugs and lacking userfriendlyness. I just didnt care to spell it out01:07
twiztidhey all, so wats the news on the 2d unity QT working with compiz???01:07
skullboyjdgordon: ohh right so what is the prob again01:07
Jordan_Udrobole: Your question is not going to be answered here. Please accept that and move on.01:08
ActionParsnipdrobole: userfriendliness is entirely tangiable from user to user. One person's easy is another person's hard01:08
droboleActionParsnip: I'm not convinced you know who you are taking to either tbo01:08
twiztidi have would like to try out unity on my maverick install but am wondering how well it plays with compiz?01:08
skullboyjdgordon: ohh right so what is the prob again01:08
tjholowaychukk so I re-installed, restarted, and I still end up in the tty :(01:08
JdGordonskullboy: trying to boot this ubuttu FS from a usb key (it works fine booting from NFS).01:08

GringoStarHi, I'm using ubuntu 8.10, I was trying to install my video driver (nvidia 96) but my kernel was not up to date so during reboot DKMS is trying to auto-install but can't find the kernel 2.6.34 (I'm still using 2.6.30) My question is If I install the newest kernel would it work or I need to install the older 2.6.34.X and what should be the last number (not specified by the nvidia driver)?01:11
pooltabletomasm a player like vlc01:11
Cody3290yet somehow, clean, at the same time01:11
Cody3290It's an odd fealing.01:11
Cody3290feeling ,rather.01:11
ActionParsniptomasm-: if you install vlc and gnome-mplayer it will pull in a tonne of codecs. You can also add the w32codecs package from medibuntu repo to maybe get what you need01:11

Cody3290How do I enable my firewall again?01:13
JdGordonskullboy: I have a fully working filesystem which was booted over NFS. I tarred it and untarred it to the usb disk and fixed the kernel boot command to mount the usb instead of nfs, gnome and klogd wont start, nothing else has changed from the working configuration01:14
ActionParsnipJonii: read the manpage for mencoder, imagine the possibilities just by that one command01:14

aborticidewell maybe we can set a video as the background01:43
red2kicCody3290: Deny -- Allow all incoming packet -- but report as reject all incoming packets.01:43

pooltablebut thanks01:44
mickster04aborticide: our?01:45
red2kicCody3290: From what I'm reading. It looks like "Deny" is ignoring the packets where "Reject" will reject the packets -- The sender would know the packets got rejected as opposed to no responsive.01:45
mickster04aborticide: ok, so make a video, and set it to play in vlc in wallpaper mode, how about that01:45
aborticidemickster04: well i figure i'll report back to you every couple of hours and let you know how it goes01:45
red2kicCody3290: You ask a girl out for a date. She rejected you. You acknowledge it.01:45
aborticidemickster04: ah yes 'wallpaper mode' that's a way to do it01:45
red2kicCody3290: You ask a girl out for a date. She deny "ignore" you. You aren't sure.01:45
aborticidei'm pretty sure no means no when it comes to women01:46
mickster04aborticide: you still need the video though01:46
twiztidaborticide: have you heard of a polling option that goes in the linux command line as a work around? at the time i didnt have the kernel that supported the option01:46
aborticidemickster04: yes, i have no idea how to make the video, but can VLC play gifs?01:46
mickster04red2kic: nice analogy01:46

mickster04aborticide: just try it01:47
aborticidemickster04: well i know it'l work, but i don't have VLC instlaled now01:47
aborticidei've used wallpaper mode before01:47
aborticidein fact i first learned about it in ubuntu01:48
Cody3290oh.01:48
mickster04aborticide: ok, well i dunno if it can, that's all, what happened when you set the gif as the background01:48
nameless`aborticide: you want to test your gif ?01:48
Cody3290THank you, red2kic01:48
aborticidenameless`: yes, but i don't have VLC installed, the problem is if VLC can play gifs, not if it can play gifs as background mode01:48
aborticideit can play anything as wallpaper that it can play in normal mode01:48
aborticideand my background mode i mean wallpaper mode01:49

aromanhey, I'm working on an ubuntu based linux distro. When I change /etc/lsb-release to be custom to this distro, it breaks most of apt/package management. It tries to look for repositories with the name of my distro, not with maverick. However, if I use "maverick", other things do not display correctly. How can I fix this?02:45
ActionParsnipKimLaroux: use a pastebin to give the output of: uname -a; lsb_release -a; dpkg -l | grep flash; dpkg -l | grep swf; dpkg -l | grep gnash      Thanks02:45

kenesisActionParsnip, im on a netbook so i get a bit of xtra space and i like the layout of the app menu, i just dont like the app tray03:22
cryptopsyyea but endorse doesn't mean technical support03:22
kenesisi like it more than the desktop03:22
ActionParsnipcryptopsy: dell put ubuntu on their systems, if thats what you mean...03:22
cryptopsyActionParsnip: yea that's one form of endorse, but not really since it was optional03:22
cryptopsyand most people chose windows03:23
ActionParsnipkenesis: you can boot to regular desktop and add what you like03:23
SoulPropagationSo my hard drive says it's full even though du -x / says it's only using 90gb (on a 250gb drive). df says /dev/mapper/***********-root has 2.1mb free... where's the other >100gb going and how can I get it back?03:23
josh_ritgeris there a command to reset all settings pertaining to my mouse/touchpad, something went wrong and it wont scroll now now matter what I do03:23
cryptopsySoulPropagation: hey this is answered gazillion ways on google03:23
cryptopsyoverhead03:23
ActionParsnipcryptopsy: just because its optional doesn't make it any less03:23
=== paijo is now known as blackshirt
cryptopsyActionParsnip: no, but getting offended makes you less03:23
kenesisActionParsnip, lol i know you said that. but how would i get all the feature from the netbook one that i like03:23
tc2k11hi, if i wanted help for postfix on ubuntu, where would i ask03:24
ActionParsnipcryptopsy: don't tell users to websearch without giving some help. Technically EVERY question can be answered using research03:24
Gentdoes is there a really up to date PPA for gnome3 / gnome-shell?03:24
cryptopsyActionParsnip: no this is one of those common ones like 'how can i see CPU usage'03:24
ActionParsnipcryptopsy: when was I offended?03:24
HalfAWolfHow do I print above 1200 pixels per inch ?03:24
cryptopsyActionParsnip: you changed the question about endorsement to about ubuntu not being less03:24
HalfAWolfI'm all set up with a new HP Photosmart Premium C310a03:24
ActionParsnipcryptopsy: people ask a range of questions in here dude03:24
cryptopsyi never said it was less because dell sells more machines with windows on it03:24
HalfAWolfThe drivers on Ubuntu 10.10 worked, but I updated them from the hplipopensource.com website in an attempt to get full resolution printing.03:24
ActionParsnipcryptopsy: no, I meant less endorsed just because its optional03:24
HalfAWolfIf I go to printer properties, under "Job Options" there is a "printer-resolution" field under the advanced options, it contains the text "(unknown IPP tag)" and I've tried changing it, but when I press apply, it gets set back to (unknown IPP tag).03:24
cryptopsyyou felt the need to take the conversation in that direction03:24
ActionParsnipcryptopsy: keep the context in mind and what I say will make sense03:24
josh_ritgerhow do I reset my mouse settings to defaults03:24
HalfAWolfI had the same 1200 dpi limitation with the HP Officejet 6500A that we bought and returned (didn't like the colour rendition of its photo printing), so I am guessing that's the default limit Linux uses when it doesn't know what it should be.03:24
Cody3290how do I use a .install file?03:25
HalfAWolfThis printer is supposed to be able to do 9600 x 2400 dpi for colour prints, how can I get Ubuntu to let me?03:25
cryptopsyActionParsnip: you can't even say its less endorsed because of that, windows has a longer history03:25
ActionParsnipCody3290: what sort of file does: file     say it is, the file extension tells you very little in ubuntu03:25
rwwcryptopsy: My apologies, it appears that when cleaning up my bans, I accidentally removed the one you requested.03:26

Cody3290Ahh, i have another question as well as the .install one03:29
Cody3290When i try to install GPeriodic, i get "Requires installation of untrusted packages"03:29
Cody3290and it won't let me install03:30
DiamondciteSoulPropagation: So in "df -h" is 221G 90G 2.1M ?03:30
SoulPropagationno 221G 210G 2.1M03:30
DiamondciteThat 10G is reserved space03:30
b0g4nk1d@cody3290 what won't install?03:30
DiamondciteOriginally the Ext filesystem reserved 5% of a partition for system critical tasks.03:30
SoulPropagationRight but du -xh / gives 86G /03:31
Cody3290GPeriodic03:31
Cody3290"GPeriodic is a small X/GTK+-based program which allows you to browse through a periodic table of chemical elements, and view somewhat detailed information on each of the elements. 118 elements are currently listed."03:31
DiamondciteSoulPropagation: If you want that space back.. you can use tune2fs to change an option I think.. But I won't recommend such an action on your system drive.03:31
DiamondciteSoulPropagation: Also things done with sudo can temporary ignore running out of space by using that reserved space.03:32
SoulPropagationDiamondcite: I don't mind having 5% reserved. I'm wondering why du -x says / is only using 86G, but df says / is using 21003:32
bob__693Cody3290: GPeriodic has an error in melting point of Neon03:33
SoulPropagationWhere's the other 115GB going?03:33
DiamondciteSoulPropagation: I'm not sure what the -x option means.. (checks man)03:33
SoulPropagation-x means ignore my usb hdd03:33
Cody3290I'll try one of the other periodictales then03:33

DiamondciteBlackWeb: If you have no idea what it does... why are you trying it ^_^03:49

ImprovOpenVZ is not a program to install templates.03:51
b0g4nk1dhow do i list all the packages I have installed on my computer by installation dates?03:51
ImprovGo lookup OpenVZ on Wikipedia; it is used to virtualise Linux instances.03:52
Diamondcite..Blackweb Those templates are to be placed at the specified folder /vz/cache/templates and it should just show up the next time openvz starts... isn't it?03:52
BlackWebmainly trying to install templates cause on some distributions then when i right click on screen and create document other distribtuions have alot of options and my 8.10 just says no templates installed03:52

Cody3290No, i didn't do anything03:55
Cody3290<Cody3290>didn't press or change anything, it just started working again03:55
Cody3290<Cody3290>I got GPeriodic installed03:55
Cody3290<Cody3290>Melting point of neon isn't a very big deal, I'm never gonna use it in my classes, so..03:55
Elitestatusi've reformated ubuntu, seeing if itl work with my alfa03:55
FloodBot1Cody3290: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.03:55
ActionParsnipPhobix: so if you install a telnet client you can run: telnet hostname port      does it connect?03:55
DiamondciteBlackWeb: Try /var/lib/vz/template/cache03:55
Cody3290Pleh, sorry.03:55
Phobixlet me install it real quick, hold on03:55
DiamondciteBlackWeb: I am not sure if this is relevant to you, http://www.howtoforge.com/installing-and-using-openvz-on-ubuntu-8.1003:56
BlackWebalright one sec, cause ya wasnt sure if i needed to install openvz but i"ll try it03:56
Cody3290Next question! How do I use "tarballs"03:56
ElitestatusActionParsnip: do you think itl reconise the alfa without installing the same driver from the website?03:56
ActionParsnipPhobix: seems to use port 24800 by default03:56
Cody3290and what is the difference between tar.gz and  tar.bz203:56
HalfAWolfI have another question while I'm in here... do packages that you download, then install in the terminal, show up in the package manager, or any other list?03:56
ImprovCody: They're compressed using different compression software.03:56
Improv.tar.gz is compressed with gzip, .tar.bz2 is compressed with bzip203:57
Lasivianare there any common viruses floating around that I should be concerned about in .deb files? thanks03:57
ActionParsnipCody3290: they both start life as .tar but are compressed differently, gzip for .gz and bzip for .bz203:57
PhobixActionParsnip: yea03:57
Phobixits really strange though03:57
ImprovCody: Gnu tar can compress/decompress both .gz and .bz2 files03:57
ActionParsnipPhobix: so it connects with telnet?03:57
PhobixI can ping them, but I dont see the machines, or anything in my places>network03:57
ActionParsnipImprov: so can unp ;)03:57
HalfAWolfI had installed a copy of vmware a couple months ago, and configured it, but by the time I got a system image to actually use with the thing, it says it's no longer correctly configured03:57
Improvtar xjf decompresses .tar.bz2, tar xzf decompresses .tar.gz files03:57
Phobixno, it doesnt03:57
Phobixtimeout03:57
BlackWebDont have that directory on system, so I'll try installing openvz and see if that helps03:57
Cody3290Great, so, how do I use them?03:58
macoLasivian: anyone can make a deb file and put it up on the internet, so use caution when getting them from random people.  the ones in the ubuntu repository, however, are made by a small set of people who have spent a long while building trust within the community until they finally were voted upon by one of the developer membership boards and given upload access03:58
ActionParsnipCody3290: Improv: you can decompress both without having to remember that junk with:  unp filename03:58
DiamondciteBlackWeb: Why install openvz.. what do you want to do...03:58
HalfAWolfI looked up the problem, and it looks like it might be some buggyboo with vmware that will make me reconfigure every time I use it, so I thought I'd try a fresh install03:58
itai1hi, i installed openvpn and been using the vpn once in a while with no problems, starting today i cant acess the internet WITHOUT using the VPN, it must have changed some of my config files but I dont know where to start , can anyone help?03:58
ActionParsnipCody3290: unp is optional so you will need to install it, it will also handle zip, tar and other archives03:58
Cody3290Example: Current Predicament: I download AssaultCube. It gives me "AssaultCube_v1.1.0.4.tar.bz2"03:58
HalfAWolfbut I want to make sure the old one is cleanly removed first03:59
Improvunp is probably Ubuntu-specific; it's probably better to use software common to all Unices so your knowledge is more portable.03:59
Cody3290Now what do I do with that file?03:59
Lasivianmaco: yeah, this isn;t from the repository, that's why i'm cautious :)03:59
HalfAWolfand I'm not sure how to do that if it's not in synaptic Package manager03:59
ActionParsnipImprov: oh absolutely, but if a tool is available, why not use it03:59
macoLasivian: you can view the contents in Ark or File Roller03:59
BlackWebtrying to install the downloaded templates but the directory the site told me to place it after download doesnt exist03:59
ActionParsnipImprov: i'm sure ubuntu-restrivted-extras isn't in any other distro....03:59
ImprovCody: What ytou do with the tarball depends on what is in the tarball :)04:00
GaryDBlackWeb: what are the templates for?04:00
ImprovYou can put anything you want in a tarball.04:00

HalfAWolfI had installed a copy of vmware a couple months ago, and configured it, but by the time I got a system image to actually use with the thing, it says it's no longer correctly configured04:01
HalfAWolfI looked up the problem, and it looks like it might be some buggyboo with vmware that will make me reconfigure every time I use it, so I thought I'd try a fresh install04:01
ImprovCody: Any good answer to your question might be kind of involved.04:01

inquiryqueueCody:  There are several ways people install software. One is with the package manager interface, and then there are ways to install things from files.04:08
inquiryqueueHere is a link to instructions for installing from tarballs:  https://help.ubuntu.com/7.04/add-applications/C/install-file.html04:08
GaryDHalfAWolf: if you install packages from source, then you will have to run the uninstall script provided with the package. if there are any bits and pieces left over, then you will have to remove them manually. if i am wrong someone will speak up.04:08
ImprovPhobix: You can use "lsof -i tcp" to find out what network ports are open.04:09

GaryDHalfAWolf: what version of ubuntu are you running?04:13

PhobixImprov: what did that do?04:13

ImprovPhobix: It looks to see if anything has that port open04:13
ImprovIf there's a process, then it's using it04:13
GaryDmu: do you mean the synaptics touch pad, or synaptic package manager04:13
ImprovOtherwise, it's free for Synaptic.04:13
ActionParsnipte: no true, it is in some cases04:13
Phobixok, so nothing returned04:13
ImprovGroovy.04:13
Phobixdoes that mean no?04:14
ImprovThat means it is free for use by the instructions you referenced.04:14

mute: I'm trying to replicate the synaptics configuration that Ubuntu uses by default for my X.org configuration in Arch04:15

teFiveways: Yes, hassle-free is a good way to put it.04:16
Elitestatusanyone help me with my problem?04:16
muFiveways: 32-bit is recommended because you can use 32-bit on 64-bit systems but not the other way around. x64 is no more of a hassle.04:16

jiltdilaaron11: i open terminal go to edit-->profile preference-->title and command  and ticked the option run a custom command instead of my shell; after doing this when i want to ope n my termianl it always splashes and gets vanished how to get rid of this?  http://img806.imageshack.us/content_round.php?page=done&l=img806/4992/screenshot1fgy.png    see this i have had done that05:01
jiltdilGaryD:ok05:01
buckymechanist, It's an extended partition. An extended partition is just a container for other partitions, your next partition is /dev/sda505:02
temechanist: sda5 sda6 sda7  are logical partitions sda1 and sda2 are primary ones.  sda2 is the extended partition which contains sda5 sda6 an sda705:02
saintbasilI added PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/MATLAB/bin/ to my .profile, saved it, but shell still can't find the matlab file. help?05:02
jukjiltdil: sad reality05:02
mechanistte: when the partition dialog comes out, from the installation manager, there is only blank space, and no enabled buttons05:02
aaron11jiltdil, Wow, you know a is not a command?05:02
temechanist: So what exactly do you want to do?05:03
ChikokishiDoes anyone here have experience with gEDA Schematic?05:03
mechanistinstalling ubuntu05:03
jiltdilaaron11:yes i know it i did it by mistake i know a is not a command?05:03
temechanist: ... wipe everything and install Linux?05:03
aaron11jiltdil, Did you try Alt-F2 gnome-terminal?05:04
jiltdilaaron11:but now how to resolve this situation?05:04
mechanistte: are you telling me this is the only possible solution?05:04
trismsaintbasil: .profile is only sourced for login shells, so you need to log out then back in (or just . ~/.profile)05:04
sougata_jiltdil, cd ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default05:04
jiltdilaaron11: i have tried alt+F2 and then typed here xterm it opens terminal05:04
temechanist: NO, I'm asking what it is that you want to do?05:04
sougata_and check if there is something in the xml that specifes custom command05:04
aaron11jiltdil, gnome-terminal?05:04
aaron11jiltdil, You see05:05
temechanist: What do you have now and what do you want to have when your done?05:05
jiltdilaaron11: same output splashes and vanished05:05
mechanistte: I just wans that in that dialog at least one partitions comes out, so I can install ubuntu05:05
aaron11jiltdil, You left the "exit terminal after command exits" option on. Thats whats happening05:05
sougata_jiltdil, I mean not through terminal05:05
mechanistte: have you in mind what dialog I'm talking about?05:06
jiltdilsougata:then05:06
sougata_press ctrl+alt f205:06
sougata_wait05:06
sougata_listen05:06
temechanist: I'm assuming you are talking about the install program showing you options for re-partitioning your drive.05:07
sougata_then when you again want to come back to X , press ctrl + alt + f705:07
temechanist: Do you now have a Linux install that runs?05:07
sougata_or otherwise you can use the file browser to see that file05:07
jiltdilsougata:actually m on virtual box so alt+ctrl+F1-F6 didn't open05:08
mechanistte: at the moment I got only the live cd05:08
temechanist: what are you doing with the ntfs partitions?  what do you use them for?05:08
aaron11jiltdil, Why dont you reinstall gnome-terminal05:08
mechanistte: in there are stored vital files, gigas of my works in games and personal stuff05:09
GaryDjiltdil: try using gconf-editor to change the values back for the terminal.05:09
RoastedHas anybody used Ubuntu with LTSP? I'm curious about changing the login screen of the thin client systems so it can be better adapted for classroom use.05:09
temechanist: So you want to save and keep sda5 sda6 and sda7 ?05:09
jukjiltdil: why dont you blow the f* computer with bazooka05:09
sougata_jiltdil, GardyD is correct05:09
mechanistte: I just wanna know why the installator doesn't see any partitions, and this both in ubuntu and in seven05:09
aaron11jiltdil, Yes use gconf-editor, i see the custom command option there05:10
mechanistte: the irony is that gparted sees partitions without any issue05:10
trismjiltdil: all you need to do is hit alt+f2, type: gnome-terminal -x /bin/bash and then fix your profile options05:10
aaron11jiltdil, apps ---> gnome-terminal ---> Profiles ---> default05:10
temechanist: Windows 7 does not see Linux partitions, (does not have capability to read them so ignores them).05:11
mechanistte: windows 7 doesn't see those ntfs partitions, neither05:11

GaryDLorgonJortle: any success?06:00
Jordan_Umechanist: The only reason that I know of for Ubuntu's installer to ignore a drive is when that drive appears to be part of an array whose type the installer does not understand.06:00
nbros652te: here's what I've done. I've gone into the router configuration page. It has a place to enter the ip address of a serve on which to store logs. I set up rsyslog to receive the log data, but I don't know what port to set in the rsyslog.conf file.06:01
LorgonJortleGaryD, I'm installing FlowPlayer now. I had to make some tea.06:02
tenbros652: Oh, I see... ok, well not sure... It doesn't even suggest what type of service to use to accept the log files?06:02
nbros652te: Unfortunately, it doesn't. It's a Chinese router and all it has is a blank for an ip address. Doesn't hint at whether it uses udp or tcp and says nothing about the port.06:04
mechanistJordan_U: if you mean array of partitions, well I just have three ntfs, one ext4, one swap, and the Windows 7's installation manager too doesn't see the hard disk06:04
GaryDLorganJortle: cool. let everyone know how it goes...i gotta go.06:04

GaryDg'night or g'mornin ... whichever it is to you!06:05
nbros652te: and I can't specify my own port because there input box has a character limit... Volans VE156006:05
Jordan_Umechanist: No, you don't currently have an array, but this disk may have previously been part of one, or there may be some other reason that something that looks like raid metadata might be on the drive.06:05
tenbros652: It doesn't suggest ftp or anything?06:05
Jordan_Umechanist: Try booting with the "nodmraid" kernel parameter. To do that press any key within the first 5 seconds of boot and press F6 to get a menu of options, check the nodmraid option.06:06
mechanisthell, this sounds serious then06:06
Jordan_Umechanist: No, not serious at all (if this is what's happening).06:06

mechanistotherwise, you can also run mirc under wine06:24
Chilaquilesmechanist: that really sucks06:24
mechanistso that it works under linux too06:24
mechanistwhy?06:24
AnubArackTransmission is failing on my setup so I have to use Vuze (deluge fails even worst)06:25
mechanistI tried and it worked06:25
mechanist:D06:25
Chilaquilesbecause wine sux06:25
MadpilotChilaquiles, xchat is fairly configurable; you can move the various subwindows around06:25
Chilaquilesis very unstable06:25
mechanistlol06:25
Chilaquilesyou always see errors that you don't have any idea where they came from06:25

MadpilotChilaquiles, "not as stable as it was" is relative. Still vastly safer and easier to admin & secure than Windows06:31

ChilaquilesMadpilot: what about Mac?06:31
kingrope#arab06:32
teholmser: Is the ehternet port connected to anything?06:32
ActionParsniphalpbatman: you can use a tool to put the install ISO on USB. Changes will not stick. Or you can create a persistant install on USB and yuo updates and changes will retain between reboots06:32
MadpilotChilaquiles, no clue. Never owned a Mac, hardly ever used them.06:32
StepNjumpactionparsnip: Hi. Would you know how to download the display drivers for my Acer netbook. I think you once helped me with that but unfortunately, I fried my old netbook!06:32
halpbatmanActionParsnip: so direct full install to usb is the same as persistent install?06:32
holmserte: yeah, it's plugged into my router right now, but for some reason I can't get it to show up06:32
ChilaquilesMadpilot: yes it can be relative but from lets say 90% secure that was before now is 50% secure06:33

ActionParsniphalpbatman: ive never heard of direct full install06:34
teholmser: And you want it to conect via hard wired connecton?06:34
AnubArackSchala, no. you just didn't let it boot one time and it self-diagnosed that it has a problem (just select boot normaly)06:34
ActionParsnipStepNjump: mention the netbook model06:34
holmserte: exactly06:34
Schalait seems either Ubuntu is touching my Windows system, or Windows is suicidal about coexisting with Ubuntu06:34
MadpilotChilaquiles, the rise in popular, easy-to-use Linux versions like Ubuntu was always going to lead to an increase in attacks. I'd say "50% secure" is gross scaremongering, though.06:34

mrdebuntumacs have i3 intel now06:39
teholmser: Once wicd is installed, you will need to log out and back in again in order for the interface to become visible on the screen.  After logging back in again, you'll see a little icon in the bar that has what looks like one monitor in front of another.  Click on it to change from one connection to the other - to choose what device to use for a network connection.06:39
AnubArackChilaquiles, at the prices of macs .... never06:39
ChilaquilesAnubArack: do they come from the same source?06:39
Gorilla_No_BakaChilaquiles:  they only have to lower their prices and they will overtaken them in about one month06:39
MadpilotChilaquiles, ask Mr. Jobs. This is kind of getting off-topic for #ubuntu, though. Non-tech support should really be moved to #ubuntu-offtopic06:40
WauraudonI'm running a CLI install of Ubuntu, and I'm trying to replace tty1 with an interactive script using dialog. The problem is, sometimes boot messages continue to display after tty1 is initialized, causing my menu to not display. Any ideas?06:40
ActionParsnipte: wicd also has a cli interface with wicd-curses so is great for servers :)06:40
ChilaquilesAnubArack: but I think Mac people know that their prices are not competitive right now, but I'm sure they will lower the prices as they see an increment in their sales06:40

I seem to be still having a problem with BT4 being read only, I'm not sure what to do about that, and for some reason Ubuntu is giving me an error saying that it can't mount ubuntu, but skipping the mounting process allows it to boot normally as though it's trying to mount some secondary filesystem that06:46
sqwertleis just a copy, not too sure.06:46
ActionParsnipsqwertle: backtrack isn't supported here06:46

holmseror "gksudo gparted" from CLI06:50
Wauraudoncfedde: I notice that, that's how I log into the system to edit the script or run other commands, but the UI on tty1 is configured using /etc/init/tty1.conf using respawn, so if it doesn't display properly the first time, I can't get it to work06:50
syn-ackvsk_ram21, Most of those apps can be found in the Partners repo and even google, who has their own safe repo to add and use.06:51

danie114te, its not working right i installed ubuntu on it and it didnt boot right with my computer but i used another one and it worked fine i just wanna fix it06:51
FrozenFireMadpilot: Will do. Was just hoping there was an independent means of comparing the package lists or package checksums to a "clean" version without a bunch of scripting.06:51
teholmser: what do you mean, network login setup?06:52
cfeddeWauraudon, you are saying that you start your ui script in the /etc/init/tty1.conf file?06:52
Wauraudoncfedde: yea, it replaces the login on tty106:52
MadpilotFrozenFire, not AFAIK. Another case of "that's never broken for me, so I don't know how to fix it"...06:52
syn-ackvsk_ram21, And to be quite blunt with you, we don't really assist with non-supported repos.06:52

LorgonJortlete, I've the same exact code now (trying it without JWPlayer) and it still works in Chromium, but not in FF.07:02
StepNjumpMrdebuntu. I'm to quite sure. I could check the specifications07:03
brontoeeeLorgonJortle, windows, as ie users? you will need some additional formats, or use flash compatible format exclusively07:03

LorgonJortlebrontoeee, They've all been using FF.07:03
holmserphaedo, I've been running it exclusively for the last 5 years, but now I want to get down and dirty.  I was thinking about trying a LFS install07:03
_skplsoreau: sudp apt-get dist-upgrade07:03
brontoeeeLorgonJortle, then ogv should work with <video> tag or with jwplayer configured to switch to html5 mode07:04

holmserphaedo, I would eventually like linux sys admin to be my job07:05
LorgonJortlebrontoeee, It's weird, I added the Java code to play OGG videos if HTML5 fails so that FF might work, but it's not failing, it's just not working. The HTML5 video starts to load, and then craps out, so it never gets to the flash video.07:05

LorgonJortlebrontoeee, Also, does that load for you?07:09
StepNjumpmrdebuntu: no, not really other than that the FXs are all grayed out in the Visual appearance ! Visual effects07:09
phaedoholmser, this is true, yet if you get your CCNA and know enough about linux then there is your job07:09
phaedoalso the CCNA is a very respected cert07:09
danie114te, ok so the program just finished downloading now what07:10
mrdebuntuStepNjump: hmm ok. it may be a newer intel graphics chip.  the intel driver is typically automatically installed and features 3d effects in linux07:10

StepNjumpmrdebuntu: The main reason that motivated me to try to download new video drivers is because my mouse is very quick to go all over the place when I type.. In one forum, someone was suggesting to download new video drivers (I don't see what the reason for doing so is)07:11
holmserphaedo,  my issue is that most of those certs give you the how, not the why07:11

recognoscoargh. grading assignments sux.07:12
phaedoif you want to be a linux admin07:12
mrdebuntuStepNjump: all right. well, i will research your particular model and see i find anything. as far as i know, the driver should automatically work for intel, sans some newer chipset models.07:12

phaedoCCNA, will give you the knowledge for networks (how to setup, etc.) then linux is what you need to learn just by testing stuff out on your own07:13
cryptodiraor conversely, how do you tell the upgrade manger to ignore Opera?07:13
LorgonJortlebrontoeee, Hmm... alright. I'll get to the JWPlayer docs and see if I can get it more properly setup.07:13
LorgonJortleThanks.07:14
phaedoi took a linux class in college and they don't really teach much...  basic commands07:14

brontoeeeLorgonJortle, why jwplayer if your format of choice is html5 related?07:14
pranavamhi07:14
StepNjumpMrdebuntu: Like you say, maybe it's too recent... Would you have a work around for preventing mouse to go all over the place whilst typing?07:14
mrdebuntuStepNjump: what about the mouse settings? have you experimented with changing acceleration there?07:15
arlanderSSP ?07:15
LorgonJortlebrontoeee, You think it'd be fine to stick with HTML5 and OGV?07:15

LorgonJortlebrontoeee, Alright. I'll get on that then. Thanks.07:17
brontoeeeLorgonJortle, the supereasy way is just a direct link to ogv file, some will then download, some will open in browser07:17
LorgonJortleNo doubt.07:17
phaedorecognosco, nowadays a google search is faster than thumbing through a book, but that is just my opinion07:17
brontoeeeLorgonJortle, and its not messy07:18
LorgonJortleYeah. :P07:18
recognoscophaedo: but reading a book cover to cover gives a better understanding of the whole subject. google searches are good, but they are for solutions to problems at hand. for theory, we need the text.07:18

StepNjumpMrdebuntu: Conservatively, I disabled the scrolling feature under mouse settings and flagged disable touchpad while typing  but that doesn't seem to make a difference. When I say I have problem with my mouse, I should have referred to it as the touchpad. Sorry. No! It's an Acer netbook.07:19

cryptodirawhere does one get the authentication keys for the Opera browser?  so that the upgrade manager will do its job..10.10 amd/6407:20

bryhoytIf I use dd to create a harddrive image of my 160Gb drive (/dev/sda), and I only have about 10Gb of actual data on the drive, can I get away with dd'ing only the first 10Gb, assuming my data is not fragmented, or would that never work in any situation?07:22
StepNjumpIt's the one that they have for sale there at Costco W43372., The Acer D255-1268 model (black color). It works well W43372 but it would benefit a lot from fine tuning it (I have some instructions somewhere.. If you want I could email you the link) and an extra 1GB would be very good.07:22
recognoscobryhoyt: i recently dd'ed a 250gb disk - it took 30 hours07:23
W43372stepnjump: the email is eldonkr@gmail.com; go for it. When you were installing did your drive have 3 different ntfs partions on it?07:23
bryhoytrecognosco: that's exactly why I want to try cutting down07:23
holmserIs it just me, or is dropbox just fancy rsync?07:23
recognoscobryhoyt: but to answer your question, no. i don't think so.07:23
ChikokishiWhat is the difference between Synaptic and Software centre?07:24
StepNjumpMrdebuntu & mrdebuntu: If the touchpad disabled whilst typing were to work properly, it would be great. Seems to be a bug from Ubuntu. Might want to report it07:24
Athenont/give athenon87 4 6407:24
bryhoytholmser: yes, but try explaining rsync to your grandmother ;-)07:24
brontoeeeChikokishi, synaptic is sexy and fast, while software center is also there07:24
StepNjumpW43372, yes I believe so.. The normal C partition, the recovery partition and I forget what the other one came up as... If you want I could check using fdisk here07:24
StepNjumpIt was 3 or 4 partitions, yes07:25
W43372stepnjump: Mine has a 14gb part, a 104mb, and a 236gb. I want to keep windows and the recovery partitions, So I need to know which two to leave alone, I'm assuming the two smallest but I don't want to be wrong07:25
swazzyQ I can't see my wally icon on the panel so i can change my picture's around.07:25
Chikokishibrontoeee, so Software centre is synaptic for people who like windows type stuff?07:25
StepNjumpW43372 What I have done is I downloaded a free partition manager from download.com and resized the main C partition to allow 100GB for Linux use formated in EXT3 FS. The install was very easy after that.07:26
bryhoytrecognosco: what if I reduce the /dev/sda1 partition size to  < ~10Gb (with say gparted), can I get a good image of /dev/sda by copying only the first ~10Gb (plus a few Mb just to be safe)? I.e. is all the partition table, mbr, etc etc stored at the start of the drive?07:26
brontoeeeChikokishi, windows doesnt have a concept of central repos, so what do you mean?07:26
overcluckerChikokishi: I haven't seen a package manager like that on windows yet07:26
W43372stepnjump: I'm assuming that the two smallest partitions are windows and the recovery, right?07:27
ChikokishiI mean.. like the way it works07:27
recognoscobryhoyt: that would be a more feasible solution. reduce the size. dd it.07:27
phaedomaybe he meant it's more gui-ish07:27
overcluckerChikokishi: ah, it is a bit simple07:27
Chikokishilike in ubuntu a lot of stuff is run in terminal, where as in windows a lot of the 'same' stuff is run in control panel07:27
ChikokishiYeahh Gui ish07:27
=== jsurfer_ is now known as jsurfer
phaedohehe07:27
phaedothat will be in the dictionary soon...07:28
brontoeeeso synaptic is less guiish then software center? :)07:28
bryhoytrecognosco: Thanks. Do you know for certain it would be reliable, or could I still be shooting myself in the foot? This is a production system, so kinda important for me not to create latent problems.07:28
ChikokishiMaybe... lol07:28
StepNjumpW43372: yes you want to resize your 236GB to let's say 100GB size for Ubuntu use via Windows 7 using a free partition software. That way when you will try to install Ubuntu with your USB key, it will be very clear which partition to reformat in EXT4. No confusion to have there.07:28
Chikokishiwhoknows.  Long story short im trying to get Geda to work like Pspice.07:28
cryptodirai am looking at 'mark all upgrades' in synaptic.... it wants to remove VLC, but not upgrade or replace it... is VLC not supported for 10.10 amd/64 ?07:28
Chikokishiand so i was trying to decide between using syna and software centre07:29
mrdebuntucryptodira: it is supported07:29
StepNjumpW43372, well one of the two is def. the recovery but the other one I wouldn't know. No, it's not the windows. Windows actually resides on your 236GB partition07:29
cryptodiramrdebuntu,  then why would it want to remove it for upgrades?07:29
mrdebuntucryptodira: i dont know. i just use apt in terminal to apt-get upgrade07:29
brontoeeeChikokishi, you can use both for various tasks07:29
recognoscobryhoyt: an dd copy of 10gb will bring back that 10gb only. so stuff that you add later, will be lost when your restore the backup. i think rsync is the smarter way to go.07:29

StepNjumpCan somebody tell me what the bash command is to be used in order to list all partitions on my sda1?07:30

But after running update manager and everything I've bumped right up to my maximum hard disk space. Is there any "light" hard-disk version of Ubuntu, or, alternatively, what mount points should I put on the SD card that would minimize internal-hard-drive space usage?08:01

Sonnejnlsnl_, unfortunately that's as much as you can do - next time try avoiding installing by those means09:20
Sonnejnlsnl_, any specific reason why you compiled wine from source?09:21

ChikokishiSonne, yes that is the direct input/ outputs.09:46

=== lance_ is now known as Guest76564
Sonnerems, when you have to compile things that need libraries, you  need the -dev versions09:49

ChikokishiSonne, gerris is a program that gives 3d models of fluid flow, and there are screenshots of it on the internet.  So i think its just me doing somethign wrong.09:49

jukEmanon: echo test | md5sum09:49
Sonnejnlsnl_, because it will download the sources, not the package - and will download the same version as the packages09:49
Emanonwhere test is the string i want to hash juk?09:49
SonneChikokishi, i can assure you it has no graphic user interface. you have to supply a file to it, and it will create another file with the graphs09:50
jnlsnl_Sonne i dont want the source this time, i just want a normal installation of wine:-)09:50
SonneEmanon, echo -n "string" | md5sum09:50

EmanonI'll use it ubuntu side only if it's only available there.09:52

shariq_I am getting problem10:23

lightayes StepNjump that why driver is a main issue, but there often some free one to remplace those, especially if your hardware is common10:25

oliver_sinisterstuf  and update as second step      sudo apt-get update11:17

sabgentonsinisterstuf: do you have 10.10?11:17
erUSULcablop: no problem11:18
th0roliver_: adding the repo just puts the repo link in the list, apt-get update actually contacts the repo and gets the software info11:18
sinisterstufsabgenton, yes, I have 10.1011:18
oliver_th0r, but  why can't I  just add the link to the repo and execute the update on a new line ... why do i have to combine it with    && sudo apt-get update11:18
sabgentonok mabye thats why I dont' have it11:18
buschwuschis there an alternative to filezilla, something sleeker/simpler?11:18
th0roliver_: you can do them separately....it isn't necessary to do them on one line11:19
sinisterstufoliver_, you don't have to11:19
oliver_th0r, well it gave me an error like failed to read from launchpad....11:19
th0roliver_: just leave out the &&11:19
sabgentonoliver_: so if your run apt-get update first by itself and then later run the command in question it doesn't work?11:19
oliver_th0r , but when i combined them it worked flawlessly11:19
erUSULbuschwusch: Places>connect to Server?11:19

W43372Computer A has things in it's shared folder I need on computer B. I mount that share on computer B, but when I try to move the files it says i don't have permission, what do?11:20

buschwuscherUSUL: i know how to use filezilla, i just want something better looking, like transmit, which is what i use under osx11:20
oliver_sabgenton makes  no sense to me11:20
sinisterstufoliver_, no. the steps are, add the ppa, update the repository, install the package11:20
=== solsTiCe is now known as Guest63122
=== tom___ is now known as _tom
sinisterstufoliver_, after you do the add-apt-repository you do the apt-get update && apt-get install whateveryouwant11:22
sabgentonoliver_: Well apt-get update  updates your package  list so apt might not run if there was a corruption in your packagelist11:22
oliver_sinisterstuf, hmm well it all worked fine  just when i tried     sudo add-apt-repository ...  (i would have run the sudo apt-get update afterwards) alone i got an error but when i run           sudo add-apt-repository... && sudo apt-get update        it worked11:22

exilerunning maverick, suddenly none of my daemons (including sysklogd) are starting on reboot. networking also down for same reason. initctl lists them all as stop/waiting. initctl start rc gives "failed to start". any ideas?12:12
bastidrazorMagizian^xx^: don't advertise12:13
theprototypelighta lol yes. but i want to run scripts. i end up having to do this a lot ending with a LOT of typing which is no biggie but if a script exists i'd like to use it, and i'm not familiar with scrips at all12:13
jribexile: what changed since last time they did run?12:13
theprototypelight i know this is getting in to programming which is totally friggin COOL12:13

schnufflewewe: what does not work, show a ls -l <program>12:14
theprototypeschnuffle yes i'm sorry. lol i knows it binary (thanks to you), do people put files in binary to prevent people from easily looking at the "code" or whatever ????12:14

wewei save it as file in OPT and i put shorcut in Desktop12:22
exileon the plus side i've learned a ton on how linux boots, on the negative i cant get anything to start except manually12:24
devkhadkacan i pause phptorec recovery process, and continue next time from the same point onward12:24

Curly_QSchnuffle I read the Smoothwall page. Is it necessary to have a 3rd box as a smoothwall server? Will do the tunnelling without a 3rd box?12:26
exilewish i knew, there's nothing pertinent in /var/log/syslog, last message is about cron being killed by TERM. this is on a remote unattended server, just a whole lot of --MARK-- since then, then nothing as sysklogd didnt start after a reboot12:26
jribexile: can you start it manually?12:27
schnuffleCurly_Q: you only need your box and the box yu want to connect to, nothing more12:27
exileyes, but it won't catch anything on boot12:27
schnuffleCurly_Q: and of course te remote box needs ssh enabled12:27
Curly_QOK thanks. Schematic diagram mentions a 3rd box.12:27
jribexile: how do you start it munually?12:28
weweschnuffle, i did it in the file but still it dose not work12:28
schnuffleCurly_Q: it was the first hit from google, mybe I should lookup a better example12:28
schnufflewewe: can you be more precise about what is not working?12:28
Curly_QI am actually logged in with SSH. No that was a good example. I am sure I can find stuff on it. I appreciate you pointing me in that direction.12:29
exilejrib: /etc/init.d/sysklogd start (also tried via initctl start rc, which fails)12:29
jribexile: ok, so we should figure out why it fails with initctl12:29
DECAheeeeeelp :)   how to restore main top panel if you delete it ???12:29
exilei'd love to know where that's logged to12:29
schnuffleCurly_Q: the important part is that you use remote portforwarding12:29
exilebut upstart doco is very vague12:29
bastidrazor!resetpanels  | DECA12:29
ubottuDECA: To reset the gnome panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »12:29
wewei have some topology that does work as root when i run it the program from terminal , so i need the program always work as root12:30
Curly_QSchnuffle, that was the lesson I gathered from this. I appreciate it.12:30
sacarlsonhow do I get a history of what was installed with synaptic sorted by time?12:30
DECAubottu let me try12:30
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)12:30
Curly_QAt least I finally got the thing running.12:30
schnuffleCurly_Q: FreeNX uses ssh by default to connect12:30
DECAubottu : thank you man12:31
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)12:31
bastidrazorDECA: you're welcome :)12:31
Curly_QThat's good to know.12:31
DECAwhere is a place with all that comand ?12:31
DECAcommands ???12:31
schnuffleDECA: you meanthe robot commands?12:32
exilejrib, do you know where to find the logs from initctl? upstart is vague at best, indicates it should be logged to syslog :<12:32
DECAyes12:32
bastidrazorDECA: http://ubottu.com/factoids.cgi12:32
jribexile: I don't.  I'll see if I can find more info.  Is there a reason you're using sysklogd though?12:33
DECAbastidrazor :   thank you  man12:33
exilecame by default12:33
bastidrazorDECA: you're welcome.12:33
DECA:)12:33
exilejrib: i have klogd in /etc/init.d too12:34
jribexile: what ubuntu version?  I seem to have rsyslog on all my systems12:35
DECAbastidrazor : do you also lknow how to enable a usb at virtual box ?12:35
exilemaverick, but it was a VPS'd image12:35
exilejrib, i can try apting it but i'm worried about making this more complicated even12:36
jribexile: no need, I was trying to understand the situation12:36
bastidrazorDECA: if you installed the virtualbox-OSE version from the repo's then USB's will not work. you will have to install the version from virtual box's website.12:36
DECAohhh iseee12:36
DECAyes i did that12:36
schnuffleDECA: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox/USB12:36
=== mRy is now known as Guest45309
jribexile: are you logging to a remote host?12:37
DECAtrhank you schnuffle12:37
bastidrazorand i did not know the OSE version had a fix. good to know,12:38
schnufflebastidrazor: haven't tried it12:39
bastidrazori prefer vmware, so i have not tested the fix either.12:39
jribexile: also, start trying http://upstart.ubuntu.com/wiki/Debugging to get more info on what is happening12:39
schnufflebastidrazor: I prefered vmware but moving to ESXi/KVM12:40
bastidrazorschnuffle: more features? better support?12:41
Curly_QSchnuffle, when doing an apt-get to install FreeNX, how often do you use sudo apt-get update ?  And what about the sudo aptitude install freenx   ?12:41
schnuffleCurly_Q: aptitude is the recommended way of installing it unites apt-get and apt-cache and has better dependency resolution12:42
exilejrib, yes12:42
bastidrazorCurly_Q: i personally apt-get update before i do anything else. uptodate package lists are important.12:42
Dr_WillisCurly_Q:  you 'sudo apt-get update' every time you add/remove repos.. or want to refresj the package listings.12:42
jribexile: yes, it's logging to a remote host?12:42
exilejrib, yes i'm on a remote host - no grub12:42
Dr_WillisIm not sure aptitude is really that recommended any more..  but some people perfer it..12:42
schnuffleCurly_Q: Before I install a package I do a aptitude update, just to be sure to have the actual package list12:42
Curly_QI see. It is almost like a windows updater.12:43
bastidrazori thought aptitude was being phased out in the later versions of ubuntu?12:43
Dr_WillisCurly_Q:  the apt update system  works MUCH better then windows update ever did12:43
Dr_Willisbastidrazor:  its not installed by default any more./12:43
jribexile: did you setup sysklogd to log to a remote host?12:43
bastidrazorDr_Willis: i guess no better way to phase out then not include.12:43
schnufflebastidrazor: really, hmm any reason for that?12:43
bastidrazorschnuffle: no idea why they would drop aptitude.12:44
exilejrib: nope, and i've seen that google result already :P (ps, i appreciate the help)12:44
