semitonesi can't find em on the googles00:04
esing123histo let me exaplin what I want to do00:05
exutuxflohuels: --rcfile file Execute commands from file instead of the system wide initialization file /etc/bash.bashrc and the  standard personal initialization file ~/.bashrc if the shell is interactive (see INVOCATION below).00:05
headsetso ubuntu 10.10 cant play movies00:05
mafdoes anyone know how to set default color to 32 bit in ubuntu ?00:05
esing123histo I want to down and upload files to my linux computer from my windows 700:05
headsetgetting lines in screen00:05
giikerhisto: is acceleration worth only for video? o does the gpu really help run it faster?00:06
esing123histo I have added this into smb.conf so far : http://pastebin.com/h4V8Wmww00:06
histoesing123: well you have several options. You could create a samba share on the ubuntu computer and windows 7 would be able to browse to it with proper settings.00:06
wechatesing123: what is the connection type beetween two machines?00:06
histogiiker: i don't see any gpu settings00:06
histogiiker: but i'd ask in #ubuntu-offtopic00:07

semitoneswhere do I put my bash script so that it's in the $path?00:07
esing123wechat and ethernet00:07
giikerok, thanx!00:07
esing123histo what is the other option than ?00:07
esing123*then00:07
flohuels@exutux: bash doesn't use one of the standard rc files, it's not a problem in ubuntu but in one other linux system...00:07
bastidrazorsemitones: you can add it like the example in ~/.profile00:07
histoesing123: okay does the windows computer see the ubuntu computer in the Network sectioin?00:07
wechatsemitones: echo $PATH00:07
mafanyone ?00:07
esing123histo no unfornatutly not00:07
histoesing123: try clicking on start and going to run and type //ipofubuntucomputer00:08
exutuxflohuels: so this is worng channel00:08
bastidrazorsemitones: err..i misread.. you can have a ~/bin that will be included in your PATH so that you can add your scripts there.00:08
histoesing123: substituting ip with the actual ip ofcourse00:08
exutuxwrong*00:08
esing123histo does it matter if I use lubuntu for the //opfubuntucomputer command?00:08
semitonesbastidrazor, ok. too bad there isn't one automatically made for you00:08
esing123ihsto ah okay00:08
flohuelshmm ok sorry for that i thought there would be many people with general screen/bash knowledge00:08
histoesing123: no the actuall internal ip address00:08
flohuels:-) but thanks00:09
bastidrazorsemitones: just create it mkdir ~/bin then add files to it. ~/.profile will automatically add it for you00:09
esing123k00:09
semitonesoh sweet! thanks00:09
exutuxflohuels: but bash is bash in all linux systems.... and --rcfile works too00:09
histoesing123: you could also open a cmd prompt in windows from the run dialog and try to ping the ip of the lubuntu computer00:09
semitonesbastidrazor, what extension should a bash script use?00:09
mafif you can read this line press .00:09
histosemitones: doesn't need one00:09
mafI get the feeling my posts aren't even posting.00:09
histosemitones: linux doesn't use extensions00:09
semitonessweet00:09
bastidrazorsemitones: extensions are pointles in linux. as long as its executable00:09
histomaf: we can see you00:09
mafoh, phew. ok00:10
wechatsemitones: *.sh or not any . But make it chmod +x00:10
flohuelsexutux: yeah, and I will have to use --rcfile option for bash in screenrc...00:10
bastidrazorsemitones: after you've added it, either start a new terminal session or type source ~/.profile00:10
semitonesok i'll leave it as no extension00:10
semitones"source ~/.profile" ?00:10
esing123no it does not work histo00:11
bastidrazorsemitones: that will rerun .profile so that ~/bin is included in your PATH.00:11
esing123/192.168.0.10000:11
flohuelsexutux: i also could write a script or alias that includes that option but i thought there must be the possibility to do that in screenrc itself...00:11
esing123/192.168.0.100:139 does not work either00:11
histoesing123: forget about the port its //192.168.0.10000:11
histoesing123: if that is the ip of the lubuntu machine00:12
cchildresshmm...by manually extracting the firmware i seem to have it going...for now00:12

randomuseralex__, don't you have a print screen button?00:49
wechath00k: :)00:49
histostiltzkin: probably an issue with the refresh rate or hz00:49
alex__randomuser, i'm trying to apply the concepts of artificial intelligence to a game.00:49
giikerhisto: had to enable graphics when compiling, aaahhhhhhh!00:49
alex__which invovles screen scraping.00:49
stiltzkinhisto, but they both seem to use the same refresh rate - 60Hz00:49
alex__not print screen and me manually doing things00:49
wechatbullgard4: the *best* way to restart gdm is `kill gdm` ^)00:49
h00kwechat, bullgard4: sudo service gdm restart <- this works very nicely00:49
alex__but yea.. the whole x windows system is completely broken00:50
alex__there has even been a book written about how broken it is00:50
histo!troll > alex__00:50
randomuseralex__, so you have one entity that needs to react to another, and it's "input" comes from color recognition and screen scraping?00:50
histostiltzkin: odd00:50
alex__yes randomuser00:50
wechathook: ok, :) i'm usually restart apache and openvpn not gdm :)00:50
stiltzkinhisto, I'd much rather use the Dell panel if possible - the Compaq is a hulking beast00:50
alex__specifically, i'm doing a neural network ocr thing.00:51
bullgard4h00k: It does not work nicely. It obtains with me: "restart: Unknown instance:".00:51
wechatalex__: "Niasilil" == give up00:51
alex__it's easy in windows..  getdesktopwindow(), get the device context, getpixel() job done.00:51

wechatbullgard4: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm --help00:51
alex__i'm not programming a game, please read00:51
histostiltzkin: there may be some X experts that can get you going around here. But i'd bet you'll find the same issue with any distro that is running bullet proof X and that monitor00:51
randomuser<alex__> randomuser, i'm trying to apply the concepts of artificial intelligence to a game.00:51
wechatalex__: Delphi?00:52
alex__yes. Never hear of deep blue? but this is OCR instead00:52
alex__i'm not programming a game.00:52
stiltzkinhisto, indeed, this is not an ubuntu-specific problem. I tried Arch and I have Lenny running at the moment. Same issue00:52
alex__i'm programming soemthing that recognizes objects on the screen00:52
syrinx_I would think the scope of this argument is beyond this channel alex__00:52
alex__based on images.00:52
stiltzkinhisto, it just baffles me that this one monitor could be completely misconfigured every time00:52
alex__and i can't getpixel because xwindows is broken00:52
histostiltzkin: yeah it's the way Xorg is detecting the display modes. if you specify a working mode in your xorg.conf you should be fine00:52
wechatalex__: It is *very* easy in windows: firfox, far, soffice ^)^)^)^)^00:52
histo!ot > alex__00:53
ubottualex__, please see my private message00:53
stiltzkinhisto, how would I go about doing that? All I have in there now is a "Monitor" section that specifies the HorizSync and VertRefresh rates00:53
randomuseralex__, i would have to agree with syrinx_ : if you need help with X, you should talk to X, not the people that package it for you00:53
alex__xwindows is very on topic00:53
bullgard4wechat: This obtains: "The script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an Upstart job, but --help is not supported for Upstart jobs."00:53
syrinx_xwindows is idependent of ubuntu, thus not fit for this channel00:54
alex__whatever.00:54
histoalex__: your problem has nothing to do with ubuntu. and you are just continously whinning about X windows nto asking questions00:54
wechatbullgard4: sooooooo, only restart X?00:54
alex__gnome is built on x windows right?00:54
exutuxbullgard4: sudo service gdm restart00:54

nsd_Anyone know how to make Ubuntu accept bad ram addresses (as indicated by memtest)?00:54
nsd_That is, ignore those addresses00:54
histostiltzkin: I'd check that bug report you had did that guy have working modes posted?  I'm sure there is working xorg.conf somewhere on line.00:54
histoalex__: i would try in #linuxhelp or #xorg00:55
alex__for the last time, i'm not developing a game :/ i'm developing something to play one.  I would never develop a game in any flavor of linux. there's just no drivers for video cards that work.00:55
randomuseralex__, you should realize that one can't simply find a one-to-one conversion for every method used in windows and expect it to work. You need to learn your tools00:55
exutuxbullgard4: or better is sudo service gdm stop && sudo service gdm start00:55
lluacould someone help me with this mpc volume + problem? http://pastebin.com/R1Ugqyc800:55

wechatalex__: learn to use gOOgle00:58
histogiiker: i use irssi inside of screen over an ssh connection so I can C-a c and create a new terminal etc....00:59

exutuxi think that it was gdm-binary00:59
stiltzkinhisto, nevermind, found the model number in teensy font on the bottom side, it is indeed an E153FPF00:59
giikerhisto: I'm connected to this channel just like you, so the only way to get out of irssi without login out is dettaching?01:00
exutuxgiiker: yes01:00
alex__wechat i've been googling for 8 hours.  Most things say:  Xwindows broken. Xorg broken and no new releases.  Use SDL (no documentation update since 2009).  Use some GDk, gtk, gtkmm gtwhatever. use xlib. install xorg-dev.  install xlib-dev. install some other stuff. it's a big mess.01:00
tsimpsongiiker: no, just open another window, you don't need to detach from screen to do that01:00
histogiiker: no opena  new window in screen01:00
wechatalex__: So?01:00
giikerhisto: you are right, forgot one can create other screens, with C-a c, thanx one again...01:01

rwwpbearie: as an analogy, apt-get update is "Waiter, fetch me an up-to-date menu!", apt-get upgrade is ordering some stuff off the menu and eating it, and yum upgrade is probably all of the above, I dunno, I don't use RedHat.02:11
rwwkothaguy_ubuntu: Natty support and discussion in #ubuntu+1, please02:11

elektroidI have a dual-core amd, my current distro when using top or looking at /proc/cpuinfo reveals only a single core but I remember using ubuntu amd64, it showed 2, is it just because I am runnig a 32bit distro or how can I find out?03:23

midas007Hello, I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 "Lucid" and one particular video file (flv) I play has delayed audio. I'd like to play this file and have the audio properly synchronized. I'm not trying to convert the file, just to play it. Does anyone know of an application that would allow me to adjust the sound delay?03:24
skullboysubcool: RAM03:24
kontagiousmidas007, have you tried using VLC player03:25
iretchis there any simple way to have a script run instead of a screensaver? I wish to have the screen just immediately go to DPMS off mode when screensaver is run. This would be useful because I'd like the screen to immediately go back to sleep if there is an unsucessful login attempt at the lock screen03:25
elektroidmidas007: which audio driver are you using?03:25
pbeariehow do i upgrade a 2.6.18 kernel to 2.6.35?03:25
subcoolskullboy, -- lol .. nothing came up. i just ran hwinfo | grep RAM03:25
midas007i've tried VLC but I don't see how to resynchronize the audio03:25
elektroidI had significant audio lag when I used OSS03:26
elektroidmidas007: VLC is your best bet for determining if its a software or audio driver issue03:26
elektroidmidas007: which driver are you using?03:26
midas007how do I check which driver?03:26
skullboysubcool: hwinfo --ram03:26
edbianmidas007, That is a common problem with flash.  I am pretty sure that it is actually that the data itself is not syncronized.  You'd have to use a video editor to actually fix it.  Not sure if such a thing exists03:26
jrmcmI need help "uncapturing" my keyboard and or mouse from a vbox.03:27
elektroidmidas007: just open the sound under preferences should indicate if its oSS, alsa, pulse or whatever03:27

elektroidmidas007: delays only appears with this video or always?03:30
midas007Only this video03:30

DoonzI just got a VPS box with ubuntu 10.04 installed. I created 2 new users. How do i get them to have the same terminal feel as the original user (sorry i dont know what to call it)03:44

elektroidneedlez: sorry, I am reading pam.d configuration to find out what each part means, I am suspect to the onerr part04:58
stiltzkinThe installation of which requires ndiswrapper04:58
elektroidneedlez: if it was that line that changed everything perhaps something is missing or incorrect and I am trying to find out04:58
stiltzkinUnfortunately ndiswrapper can't really be used on PPC, since there are no PPC Windows drivers.04:58

GaduI'm choosing between 2 nearly identical graphics cards. Option 1 supports OpenGL 4.1 whereas Option 2 only supports 3.2 but it is slightly faster. (both are Radeon HD 6850 from same brand)06:12
GaduWhat are the advantages of going up to 4.1 from 3.2?06:12
Jon--giiker: Microsoft has a closed source product that is designed to allow people to chat with other people who, most often, have their email account and choose to use their product. Should they be more open? Sure. Should we get mad or require it of them? I'm not sure you really can. It's within their rights to be competitive and keep their source closed, even if it makes us mad.06:12

elektroidMTecknology: what I mean is that, you expose yourself to a lot of bugs by staying bleeding edge, if you have a version of something and its solid, stay with it unless you need new features06:43
giikergood night everyone, thanx for those who helped me tonight with screen, i really enjoyed it!! see you in the afterlife, if there is any!, I hope! :-)06:43

jigynetwhat is "deep scan"06:44
elektroidthat seems to be Ubuntu's trend anyway, constant updating06:44

elektroidI think Ubuntu was originally based off of Debian SID so that make sense06:45

hiexpoihack4fun, dvdbackup works great06:46
jigynetlol06:46
MTecknologyelektroid: every version does imports from debian unstable; until a few months prior the auto sync is stopped06:46
needlezDwood: you still there??06:46
MTecknologyjigynet: setup and compile and install by hand; very very fun once you know what you're doing06:46
hiexpoihack4fun, but gotta use terminal06:46
elektroidMTecknology: thats why I stopped using Ubuntu for a desktop, since 10.04 everything was overly buggy to me06:47
ihack4funUse Dvdbackup in term?06:47
jigynetMTecknology,  meaning there is code that is tweakable for certain desireable things? and then re-compiled?06:47

Bing0Hi.  Ubuntu 10.10 -- I have a flash issue(not speed, and full-screen works fine) on different computers with different browsers.  If I load a flash video(youtube for ex) and scroll down the flash video follows the page...also if I have other tabs open the flash overlays the other tabs.  Any ideas or anyone else having this issue?  Thanks.06:47
jigynetMTecknology, what would you change for instance?06:48
ihack4funSyntax pretty easy?06:48
jigynetand why06:48
elektroidhell, I am using kernel 2.6.33 because of the realtime patch, I prefer that then the latest kernel just because06:48
=== Conquistador is now known as melik
hiexpodvdbackup is a terminal app06:48
elektroidjigynet: there are a lot of modules that the normal kernel loads and processor functions that are unneeded06:49
hiexpoand works perfect06:49
elektroida lot06:49
elektroidbut I think the majority of Ubuntu users dont notice06:49
nishantmy touchpad problem was because of the laptop key combination that disables touch pad , it remains intact even after boot06:50
jigynetlol processor functions? you would wnat as much cpu functions as possible..optimizations..06:50
hiexpo!dvdbackup06:50
jigynetcouldn't these modules be uninstalled later without having to edit the code?06:50
ihack4funGot it on Sourceforge thx06:50
elektroidjigynet: not optimizations, things like profiling and accounting which are extra overhead06:50
MTecknologyjigynet: it all can be changed; the kernel you're using is about 4.3MB with about 132MB in modules  --  mine is 2.2MB total; no modules06:51
MTecknologyno overhead of added jun06:51
jigynet4.3gb?06:51
MTecknologythat's an m, not a g06:51
elektroida 4.3 gb kernel LOL06:51
MTecknologyi don't think that's even possible06:51
elektroidimagine that thing loading up at start06:51
MTecknologylol06:51
jigynetwell when you say kernal i think of it as the entire os06:52
MTecknologyneed 8GB ram06:52

ihack4funChris got me on that one06:55
jigynetMTecknology, so what would i change to optimize a 64bit xubuntu for my atom netbook?06:55
HyperHoRseiceroot: I have only 512mb of ram06:56
oven_i mounted a network drive through nautilus..how do I figure out info about it through the terminal, using smb://harddrive/share/ won't work, and i don't know of a /dev name and uuid is what i want to figure out..06:56
HyperHoRseiceroot: Will the latest ubuntu always run with my low amount of memory.06:56
icerootHyperHoRse: i think with 512mb ram, lubuntu is worth  look06:56
jigynetelektroid, i didnt say my kernal was 4.3gb i was thinking the numbers mt said were from the entire install06:56
icerootHyperHoRse: not very good06:56
HyperHoRseiceroot: I also have a 512mb graphics card06:56
icerootHyperHoRse: not if you are using ubuntu (with gnome)06:56
HyperHoRseiceroot: Yeah but my 512mb geforce takes care of opengl06:56
HyperHoRseicroot: I actually get ok peformance and can still play games.06:57
icerootHyperHoRse: doesnt matter, applications are not using the ram of your vga06:57
jigynethyper it will run06:57
MTecknologyjigynet: depends; you first need to know what you're doing; then you deeply need to understand the inside of your system and how it all fits together; it's not as simple as just a change here and there and done06:57
HyperHoRseiceroot: is that actually true because I thought opengl takes care of all that06:57
MTecknologyelektroid: so... m4a, flac, mp3 ??06:57
jigynethyper only reason it runs in low gfx mode is because your drivers ar not installed properly06:57
icerootHyperHoRse: its as i said06:57
nishantFolks , I think Ubuntu should allow by default http://www.downloadatoz.com/driver/articles/how-to-enable-intel-graphics-driver-for-ubuntu-10-10.html06:58
HyperHoRsejigynet: my peformance is not bad I can play games pretty good06:58
elektroidMTecknology: dont understand your question? which do I prefer? mp3 because of portability06:58
jigynethyper what is your question about opengl specifically?06:58
iceroot!tab | jigynet06:58
ubottujigynet: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.06:58
HyperHoRseiceroot: Will ubuntu always support 512mb of ram06:58
jigyneta gefore 5500 for example support opengl 2.0 and previous versions06:58
MTecknologyelektroid: if what your putting it on could understand anything; which would you use?06:58
HyperHoRsejigynet: What do you m ean06:58
icerootHyperHoRse: its not a question of support, its a question about performance06:59
HyperHoRsejigynet: I mean open gl shouldn't it use all the graphics ram06:59
hiexpoi am just running a lappy and using ubuntu gnome and it runs fine06:59
MTecknologyHyperHoRse: probably not 20yr from now where people can't believe we used to use DIMM's06:59

HyperHoRseor whatever,07:10
rwwnishant: No, the current stable version of Ubuntu uses 2.6.35.07:10
jigynethyper what?07:10
jigynetso your using nvidia drivers instead of what was provided by ubuntu07:11
theclassycorsairwhat's that website, where you can submit and VOTE on commands? like with switches and combined to do useful and neat things?07:11
HyperHoRsejigynet: in unity. I can't use unity because of the graphics card drivers. Extra Desktop Effects does not work.07:11
nishantso in general is there a lag wrt to latest kernel , is compiling the kernel on own own advised?07:11
elektroidnishant: you can generally go to www.distrowatch.com and see which version of the kernel and main software a distro uses and no maverick 10.10 uses 2.6.3507:11
rwwnishant: No, we advise that you use the version that comes with Ubuntu, as that's the one we support ;)07:11
jigynethmm i have a nvidia 5500 with 512 let me see if i can replicate the issue07:11

jigynetone second pls xD07:12
HyperHoRseso does that mean that unity will be for basic computers that dont have graphics hardware?07:12
nigelbnishant: you dont get the bug fixes or security fixes if you compile your own kernel, neither can you log bugs.  They will be closed since we don't support mainline.07:12

airtonixgrub2 you mean07:20
mwiegandJust got a quick add-apt-repository question: Would add-apt-repository on 10.10 add deb-src lines to the sources.list, even when given a repository starting with "deb "?07:21
zodiac207jokersmile: grub2?07:21
jokersmileif that's the latest and updated and recommeded one from the community, then yeah07:21
MTecknologyelektroid: looks like mp3 defaults add an extra 20-25% over the m4a defauls; i'll assume it's just compression :)07:22
airtonixmwiegand: add-apt-repository does not add lines to /etc/source.list07:22
airtonixjokersmile: grub2 is the one that will let you do multiboot from usb07:22
airtonixjokersmile: it lets you boot straight from iso files on a partition07:22
xZwhitehi07:22
mwiegandairtonix: It sure does on 10.04.07:23
airtonixmwiegand: no. it adds files to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/07:23

jokersmilewill it work on 10.1007:23
dpetrekhihos07:23
xZwhiteif i does apt-get source on a package how can i know how the deb package is compiled?07:24
jigynetsup07:24
mwiegandairtonix: But aside from that, it should not add deb-src lines if not requested, right?07:24
airtonixmwiegand: every single add-apt-repository action i've executed for the last year has only created a relevant file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/07:24
dpetrekso i have ubuntu server with shortage of disk space. command line access only. tried checking whats using the space with df -k. says 96% use on /dev/sda1 which is mounted on /07:24

eckirchncmd line top07:25
meanhow to load the new kernel?07:25
airtonixmwiegand: yes, it will create a file of the name related to the ppa you requested in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and fill that file with the relevant deb & deb-src lines07:26

meani have kernel 2.6.32-27 but it always start with 2.6.32-24,how to load the new kernel?07:27
dpetrekthis does not make sense guys, although i can see disk usage by folders now, the sum of usage by fodlers is not what df -k reports for /07:28

Dr_WillisAint faily fun. :)07:38
poozoi i thought ubuntu was supposed to support that07:38
Devicearand, i almost want to cry lol. the ever faithful ubuntu has crashed on me for the first time ever...07:38
Dr_Willisit would depend on the driver support for that card pooz07:38

jigynetpooz gotta start somewhere right?07:39
Dr_Willisperhaps because they knew it was getting a total work over for 11.0407:39

Raptors?07:50

Dr_WillisRaptors:  the new interface Unity revisted..07:50

dpetrekoverclucker: how07:51
Dr_Willisjigynet:  directx on linux?  Compiz does use acell here.07:51
Devicefifteen minutes of distrsction and the ever faithful ubuntu has given meancontrol again.07:51
jigynetlol xD well something like directx to give apps or gui the benefits of use of the gpu with cpu07:51

Dr_WillisIf you want fancy effects with out the hardware requirements.. check out  the latest Enlightment, or if you want to go to 'way out there land' theres metisse. :)07:53
Raptorsand adds some more features07:53
RaptorsDr_Willis, are they as good as compiz?07:54
Dr_Willis11.04 is just moveing ubuntu to a new directon07:54
Dr_WillisRaptors:  they can do  effects.. they are not the big hogs that compiz is... they have some features lacking in compiz.07:54
tsimpsonjigynet: unity is supposed to be a unified UI, compiz is just a window manager07:54
RaptorsI like it how it is right now07:54
overcluckerdpetrek: type mount. it should show you what is mounted, and where. you can run umount on the mount point, or the mounted device.07:55
Dr_WillisEnlightment - is slowly growing into a 'desktop' :) metisse is a window manager that can do fancy effects  without needing 3d acell.07:55
RaptorsI don't want this unity crap. :|07:55
tsimpsonRaptors: the code is teh broken, unless you know C and GDK/GTK, you're stuck07:55
jigynetis unity more widely  supported and adaptable then compiz? tsimpson..so compiz has dependancies and unity is self contained and streamedlined because of this?07:55
Raptorsugh07:55
Dr_WillisUnity is the next generation. :) i guess youi can say.07:55
RaptorsI guess I'll use the ubuntu package on debian and hope that it was brick my system07:56
Dr_WillisI recall when compiz was in version like .0001 :) and was a total disaster.  Unity is proberly at  .01 level.07:56
tsimpsonjigynet: compiz doesn't do anything other than make your windows wobble etc, unity is something completely different07:56
Raptorstsimpson, it does more then just make your windows wobble07:56
Dr_Willisit can also make the cube!07:56

Dr_WillisRaptors:  ive not even tried it. so have no oponion on it.. it is going to be what gets pushed.. so thats the bottom line.08:03
jigynetendafy,  using the add/remove software in the apps pull down menu will list installed drivers with a gren check mark08:03
endafyjigynet, its all good the add/remove doesnt have any drivers and I really dislike synaptic08:04
overcluckerdpetrek: probably not a good idea to just unmount them. you might want to reboot into a recovery console if you can. then check for files in the unmounted mount points.08:04
RaptorsDr_Willis, maybe by ubuntu. I don't think everyone will be pushing it08:04
endafysudo su then .sh NV*.run should do the trick08:04
Dr_Willisive used everything from GeOS on my C64 to twm, to you name whatever windowmanager/desktop out..08:04

jigynetendafy,  so you went to nvida and download their drivers and expect them to work with ubuntu?08:04

endafyno but we'll see in a moment08:04
Dr_WillisRaptors:  dosent really matter.. Im in #ubuntu support. :) and i imagine other disrtos will follow. or go gnome-3 wich is also going similer routes.08:04
RaptorsLooks pretty horrible to me :/08:04

ubottuvpark: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.09:48

ArabusI have a small problem regarding Ubuntu 10.04 - Some of our users are not able to log in successfully. When they type in username and password in the login prompt of gdm it turns black as if to load the desktop and then returns to the login prompt. Weird thing is, this only happens to some users not all of them.10:54
ArabusI have already tried looking into the logfiles but found no error message I could connect to this. also removing .gnome and .gnome2 folders from the home directory did not help either. Someone has a clue why this happens or where I could read more on that? I'd even be grateful about a pointer where I can increase the debug output of gdm.10:54

jigynetKre10s, was just wondering if for somereason it was configured diffrently..you could try a diffrent manufacturer and see if that makes a diffrence.. do you also have slow speeds?12:43
rizzuhbazhang, capacities are measured in gigabytes now, so saving 20MB sounds stupid, if it is that much.12:44

=== DarkDevil is now known as Guest76051
bullgard4jrib: How can I determine this device number and this partition number?12:45
ikoniarizzuh: because not all servers have DCD12:45
ikoniaDVD12:45
grndlvlsunit: https://secure.jabsupport.com/support/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=135 <-- this looks to be accurate and states what each time value is. I think it would be something like */12 * * * * "PATH/SCRIPT"12:45
Picirizzuh: There is a DVD available if you want.12:45
riverykhispano12:45
rizzuhikonia, for servers you doin't need to ship the whole GUI in the disc.12:45
jribbullgard4: is there a reason you aren't using UUID?12:45
Pici!es | riveryk12:45
ubotturiveryk: En la mayoría de canales de Ubuntu se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español o charlar entra en el canal #ubuntu-es. Escribe "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y dale a enter.12:45
ikoniarizzuh: running a gui on a server is fine12:45
bazhangriveryk, #ubuntu-es12:45
Kre10sjigynet: I bought it at the isp. its from TIM but my isp is VIVO.12:45
rizzuhikonia, and besides, with servers you can usually use a BMC to mount the image from a network share, or spend $20 and get a USB reader, since servers run for several hundred to several thousand.12:46
coz_rizzuh,  the alternative to a dvd install is the minimal install cd  which will list available packages /  DE 's   during install but is only a 12 meg download12:46
ikoniarizzuh: you don't dictate what people useually do12:46
ikoniarizzuh: it's 20 meg, if it's not a big deal, download it12:46
rizzuhikonia, sure, but crippling the distro because of old technologies is not that great.12:46
grndlvlbah thats wrong actually */5 * * * * maybe... I usually have to play around with it a few times actually lol i rarely set one up12:46
ikoniarizzuh: it's not crippling a distro12:46
wakawaka_overclucker: any idea if there's a way to set the default group for a created file?12:46
Picigrndlvl: Thats correct12:47
jigynetrizzuh,  so you expect everyone to go .0020 gigabytes instead of saying 20MB?12:47
rizzuhikonia, almost.12:47
jribMarconM: the syntax to create a symlink is: ln -s TARGET NAME.  So for example if you want to create a symlink to /home/jrib/some/really/long/path/coolfile in /home/jrib, you could do: ln -s /home/jrib/some/really/long/path/coolfile /home/jrib/coolfile12:47
overcluckerwakawaka_: not sure if vsftpd can do that or not12:47
ikoniarizzuh: not in the smallest part is it crippling a dsitro12:47
rizzuhjigynet, I expect people to stop using wimpy CDs.12:47

jigynetrizzuh, not until usb 3.0 is cheap and is actually faster then any other media12:48

ruanKramB: you need to code the file correctly then13:23
jribm___: ls **/*[0-9].ser    in the right directory13:23
KramBcoz: to compile java scripts.13:23
KramBruan: I guess I will look over it. :s13:24
jribm___: and that's a glob, not a regex13:24
ruanKramB: it's returning errors because the code is incorrect13:24
ruansyntax errors13:24
tdnHow do I install the latest 2.6.38 kernel in Kubuntu 10.10? I need to check if a specific bug has been fixed.13:25
m___jrib: that does not work13:25
High_Priesttdn, you download it, compile it and boot it13:25
frxstremcoz_: there were some updates (for tzdata and wine), thought I highly doubt updating them would solve anything...13:25
KramBI don't see what is wrong. >:l13:25
High_Priest:)13:25
jribm___: in what sense does it not work?  Do you get an error or does it do something other than what you wanted?13:25
coz_frxstrem,  right13:25
blackshirttdn: are you want install it from repos or compile by self13:26
m___cannot access **/*[0-9].ser: No such file or directory13:26
coz_frxstrem,  mm and this occurs every time you newly boot into  your system ...yes?13:26
jribm___: what ubuntu version is this?13:26
tdnHigh_Priest, really? Is there no easier way? I would guess that this is a fairly common task. So I thought there would be some .debs available. Either via PPAs or similar.13:26
frxstremcoz_: yes13:26
m___10.1013:26
coz_frxstrem,  does this also occur when you restart X?13:26
tdnblackshirt, preferably via repos.13:26
jribm___: what shell are you using?13:26
isbric_Hey, i just ran a dist-upgrade on a lucid box, after my reboot i get consistent packet loss on localdomain every 10-11 minutes lasting for about 30-60 sec.13:26
m___well bash13:26
bazhangisbric_, dist-upgrade?13:27
frxstremcoz_: I don't know, I haven't tried13:27
tdnisbric_, that sounds *really* strange. What does dmesg say?13:27
KramBDoes anyone here know java, and could look at this for me?13:27
tdnisbric_, paste your dmesg output here: http://paste.adora.dk13:27
coz_frxstrem,  ok try it doing it the correct way     ctrl+alt+F1    log in    sudo  restart gdm13:27
blackshirttdn: check it when there that version on repo13:27
blackshirttdn: or chek from ppa archives13:27
tdnblackshirt, I have tried adding the kernel PPAs, but there are still no 2.6.38 kernel availabe from it. Which PPA should I add?13:28
jribm___: if you want to use find: find -name '*[0-9].ser'13:28
isbric_bazhang: apt-get dist-upgrade13:28
tdnblackshirt, I have not been able to find any useful info on this.13:28
tdnblackshirt, maybe I could try installing the natty kernel in maverick? Would that work? If so, how to do it?13:28
bazhangisbric_, that wont change versions if that is what you are attempting13:28
coz_frxstrem,  you got back here pretty quickly13:29
=== doodoo is now known as Dart
m___cheers, jrib!!13:29
frxstremcoz_: yes, that's because I didn't have to wait when I restarted X13:29
coz_frxstrem,  mmm  so something is up with the initial boot sequence,,, this may be beyond my knowledge....13:30
Aloneaok, is there anything I can temporarily do to fix the brightness on my EEE until the fix comes out next month? (on kubuntu) its at "100%" and its still really dim. I have the issue where my brightness scale is all over the place as I increase/decrease it (its not in order and its all pretty dim)13:30
coz_frxstrem,   which video card is on that system?    lspci | grep -i vta13:30
coz_nono13:31
coz_frxstrem,   lspci | grep -i vga13:31
coz_big fingers :)13:31
frxstremcoz_: nVidia Corporation GT218 [NVS 3100M]13:31
blackshirttdn: you can install natty kernel on maverick, update your sources.list with natty repo, run update and then install kernel from natty repos13:31
coz_frxstrem,  ok13:31
ruanAlonea: have you tried the application "monitor settings"?13:31
coz_frxstrem,  hold on13:31
isbric_my dmesg: http://paste.adora.dk/P1991.html13:32
Alonearuan: so far the brightness settings that came with kubuntu is what is broken. is this a separate application?13:32
airworkhi. i'm trying to delete a partition from my drive but it's telling me the partition is outside the disk. fdisk -l /dev/sda returns weird numbers13:32
isbric_bazhang: no13:32
botcityhi guys i recently put another linux distro on my netbook i thought it would set up a dual boot with ubuntu when grub loads it shows both distros but when i select ubuntu i get error 15 file not found , i dont wanna reinstall ubuntu i know that would fix it but is there another fix?13:32
coz_frxstrem,  out of curiosity would you try    initctl status gdm13:33
ruanAlonea: yes, though it is a gnome app13:33
usr13airwork: sudo fidsk -l /dev/sda | pastebinit13:33
tdnblackshirt, is that safe?13:33
tdnblackshirt, will I always be able to go back later?13:33
[TK]D-Fendertdn: No.13:33
usr13airwork: Which partition are you trying to delete?13:33
tdn[TK]D-Fender, thought so. What will you recommend?13:34
[TK]D-Fender! 11.04 | tdn13:34
ubottutdn: Natty Narwhal is the codename for Ubuntu 11.04, due April 28 2011. Help and support (only) in #ubuntu+1. Natty is unstable and is not intended for production systems.13:34
frxstremcoz_: "gdm start/running, process 3784"13:34
isbric_any ideas?13:34
coz_frxstrem,  mmm ok hold on  let me do a bit of research on this issue13:34
airworkusr13: : trying.. but i'm on the live cd and installing pastebinit is taking forever, let me paste manually13:34
[TK]D-Fendertdn: Recommend yuo wait until it is released and you have a reasonable chance of not ending up with a crippled system13:34
tdn[TK]D-Fender, I do not want to upgrade to natty just yet. I just want to try out the kernel under maverick.13:34
airworki want to delete partition #2 on my one and only drive13:34
Alonearuan: what is even worse is if I manually set the brightness to 100% in the terminal, its still wrong. echo -n 100 /proc/acpi/video/VGA/LCDD/brightness13:35
gee#niteroi13:35
usr13airwork: How are you trying to delete it?  (What partitioning utility are you using?)13:35
