M-TI think I may have just hosed my media center PC (Acer Aspire Revo) that runs Ubuntu Karmic.  I let it do a system upgrade and after it rebooted it would only come up in Low-Resolution mode,  I use a program called "Back In Time" which I thought was supposed to be like Time Machine on a Mac.  So I tried restoring from the latest backup.  Not only did that NOT fix the video issue, but now Sudo doesn't work, nor any program that requires a00:12

usr13ar0n: Since when __________?00:12
ar0nsince the upgrade?00:12
ar0nM-T,  thats no good00:13

usr13ar0n: Well, yea it works just fine. But that's all I can say.  It works just fine on my 32bit box as well, so....00:15
knoppiestriggerhapp, thanks, what I meant was, they can install anything on their machine, provided that it will run on windows.00:15
triggerhappknoppies, understood :300:15
twitchknoppies: To the best of my knowledge, there is no alternative Skype client for any platform. The Skype protocol has yet to be fully reverse engineered for compatibility with a replacement application. The protocol itself is proprietary and heavily encrypted and obfuscated.00:15
triggerhapptwitch, haha. Just annoy him more ;)00:16
twitch:D00:16
knoppiestwitch, I was hoping to avoid the skype protocol, and use something much better, maybe open source. But as I said, there must be a windows client too.00:16

viewerwhen i suspejnd a job in the terminal using ctrl-z how do i kill it?  i type jobs and see its job 1, then i try kill 1 and it says operation not permitted??00:36
ledbettjCode_Bleu: I just tested it with one of my jpegs -- worked ok; is there something special about the jpg you are trying to convert?00:37
Cronkviewer:  Try "kill -9 1"00:37
Guest4965n4cht: Then why not kill the power during boot to record a boot fail, then get your grub menu that way00:37
LittleRedar0n: the weigh in is still loading (ggrrrrr..hate waiting) Let me see if MMAjunkie has it00:37
n4chtviewer: ps aux | grep <job name>   then kill -900:37
ehwviewer, type %1 otherwise you're killing PID 1, which is probably not what you want...00:37
n4chtsorry... kill -9 <pid>00:37
twitchn4cht: grep -i :P makes it easier00:38
rwwn4cht: hold down shift at boot00:38
p_resCode_Bleu: Can you load the image into GIMP or something similar?00:38
n4chtrww: i'll give that a try.00:38
jamiewanviewer, or run top in terminal find the pid number of the app then sudo kill -9 pid00:38
ledbettjviewer: you can also do ' killall `pidof <programname>` '00:38
ehwviewer, so "kill %1"00:38
Code_Bleuledbettj: it converts for me too, but if you right click and go to properties...then the image tab it says: Failed to load image information00:38
LittleRedar0n: there is a silverlight plugin... give me a sec and I'll let you know if  it works00:39
p_resLinux has issues with maintaining exif data with jpeg > tiff conversions. I know that.00:39
Code_Bleuledbettj: ok, Gimp gives the same result...so that must be the norm...i guess.00:39

twitchGuest4965: i have no ideas sry unless you backport a kernel00:40

viewerledbettj, jamiewan, n4cht, Cronk, thanks but im trying to do it without top or going throught the PID as an exercise00:40
viewerehw, when i try to designate its a job number with 5 it just lists the stopped job like when typing 'jobs'00:40
viewerehw, designate with & (sorry)00:41
n4chtviewer: nice.  i only ever kill processes by PID myself.  good luck though.  :)00:41
LittleRedar0n: it's loading00:41
p_resviewer: You can still use top to nab the pid though.00:41

Cronk(OK, last time.  I am guessing folks don't have an answer, but maybe...just maybe...the question is getting missed.  I will stop spamming after this.)00:42
ar0nicdid it make you buffer/load all of it?00:42

viewerehw, i see, thanks00:44
ar0nichey LittleRed  did it make you load all of it00:44
ehwviewer, as an aside, "sudo kill -9 1" would terminate init (which is always PID 1), at which point hilarity ensues :-)00:45
ar0nicthen play or did it buffer at all00:45

trismBentFranklin: there is no 2.7 package in the lucid repos, it wasn't added until 10.1000:45

morgothis ndiswrapper included in the default installation01:06
AmpelbeinTeggeh: you can use the computer janitor to remove old kernel versions, that will reduce the ubuntu-* entries.01:07
Jordan_Ufabio333: Just run "sudo update-grub" and an entry for Windows will be added automatically.01:07
jamiewanyep01:07

sunnymolinihelp pls, I've installed ubuntu 10.10 netbook in a VM, and lacked the drivers to start up Unity at the first start of the OS. Now I'm using the nromal GNome and I don't know how to make it go back to Unity, I've confirmed that Unity is installed, but I just don't know how to make it the UI.02:24
=== darkwurm is now known as atyoung
ledbettjsunnymolini: pretty sure Unity requires 3d acceleration, which you might not be able to get in a VM.  Otherwise you should be able to choose it from the 'session' selector at the bottom of the GDM login screen.02:26

ledbettjsunnymolini: yup, I think so.02:28
sunnymoliniThat's awesome, thanks ledbettj.02:28
ledbettjsunnymolini: once you select it once, it should ask you if you want to make it your default session02:28
ledbettjsunnymolini: then you could turn autologin back on.02:29
DOOXhow can i know that if my ubuntu 32-bit OS is secure from hacking?02:29
sunnymoliniD00x, If you're looking for metaphysical certitude, then the answer is you can't.02:30
=== atyoung is now known as atyoung_
DOOXsunnymolini , i dont understand you02:31

sunnymolinibasically, no system can be made that can be absolutely hack proof.02:31
sunnymolinieverything has a weakness somewhere, and even if you make your data 100% inaccessible from even yourself, that doesn't mean somebody else can't get to it.02:32
robdigDOOX: a lot of it is common sense. don't use the autologin feature. disable any services that you don't need (telnet, ftp, etc)02:32
DOOXsunnymolini , you are right , but what can i do to ensure that my system if 90 percent secure02:32

Booted offa the live cd, went into preview mode, installed again; went fine. System never successfully boots into the desktop - either locks up immediately after o/s selection or gets to where i can see the background and locks up there. Any ideas? Does Ubuntu have issues with SCSI?02:53
endafywhy do I need to open a terminal for something that used to be all gui?02:53
endafy1 step this page is saying like 802:53
=== maelstrom is now known as Guest65881
edbianA|i3N, Can you boot Ubuntu recovery mode?  (is there failing hardware?)02:55
endafyI used to be able to pop a DVD in and click search and it would just play and now its broken, Java used to be available in synaptic but now its gone, really this is what I call backwards02:55
arbitraryI need GParted to ignore a corrupt superblock.02:55
A|i3N(oh and by the way before anyone says it, all fans are running normally lol. I used to fix this stuff. I'm thinking maybe memory issues but the O/S that was *ON* here was SUSE enterprise and it booted fine but came up to the menu that belonged to the restaurant that owned it)02:55

Ben64"It is recommended that you use openjdk-6 instead."02:56

endafyopenjdk doesnt work with everything02:56
Ben64then read a little bit more and install sun02:56
Ben64it's really not difficult02:56
edbianA|i3N, yes, you can use dmesg for example  It's a good command for general issues.02:56
IdleOneendafy: then open Software sources, enable the partner repository and then search and install java from the package manager of your choice.02:56
endafynickmoeck, yeah not happening idk how02:56
arbitraryThe exact issue is I have a mostly complete copy of a dying hard disk, but I ran out of space in the destination partition, and GParted won't let me add more space because the filesystem is (obviously) corrupt, but fscking the filesystem will force a restart on recovering the data and the hard disk probably won't survive a second run through.02:57
nickmoeckendafy: so, instead of actually trying to figure it out, you're going to come here and complain?02:57
A|i3Nyea I'm really new at this linux thing edbian lol. Using it/installing software and stuff is one thing but troubleshooting this early is challenging lol. If I can get it to boot, I'll hop back on here from the computer after i get xchat on it02:57
nickmoeckYou've obviously done it before, if you installed Sun Java in previous Ubuntu releases02:58
edbianA|i3N, dmesg is just a command.  Run it in the terminal.  Look for errors (espcially near the end).  The last 1/2 is the only 1/2 you need to read probably.02:58
endafywhy does shit have to be difficult <- that right there is cussing and I am getting extremely pissed off at my desktop all of a sudden locking me out of shit I used to be able to accomplish with great ease and yes fix it or lose users, human beings dont give a rat's ass about shit like this, linux for humans indeed PUH, I should have bought a windows instead I bought a system 7 and now I am heavily regretting it02:58
edbianA|i3N, Do you know how to get to recovery mode?02:58
A|i3NOh - one more thing - using a CDMA connection through metroPCS - anyone know how to maybe speed it up a little bit? I want to check to make sure compression is turned on but not sure where to look. Helped in windows.02:59

t4sHi. When trying to install Ubuntu Server 10.04 (and 9.10) on my laptop, all I get is black screen. Ubuntu Desktop 11.04 works fine. The problem might be the graphics card (Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)), but I haven't found any solutions dealing with this problem at install time. If this is the problem, is there a workaround? Thanks03:00

thiebaudecool that works now i set my login not to automatic, appreciate it very much community :)03:04
edbianA|i3N, yep, it gives you choices.  One is to drop to a root shell, that's cli.  If you go that route you can start graphics by doing this: sudo gdm.  However you are also given the choice to boot normally.  It's a little menu03:04

edbiantanki, Ubuntu is easy as far as Linux goes03:07

mcurrandoubt it's related, they'd either be blocked (torrent ports) or not.03:07

robertzaccouris there a good program for capturing video from a usb device?03:08
edbiantanki, It will not if you install correctly03:08
tankiedbian: so ubuntu03:08
mcurranyeah install the grub to the linux partition and then set it active instead of overwriting your mb03:08
mcurranr03:08
tankithanks03:08
tankii will try ubuntu03:08
edbianmcurran, That is not right.  Grub must overwrite the MBR in order to use it to choose which OS to boot.03:09
edbiantanki, have fun03:09
jitittrism: ive limited my upload/download speeds, AND kept my # of connected users down and it still drops. also, when i plug in an additional wireless NIC the internet begins to work again.03:09
mcurranyour wrong edbian03:09
tankiedbian: oh then it is not safe03:09
mcurranyou don't have to overwrite mbr at all03:09
edbiantanki, Ubuntu is safe.03:09
minimecrobertzaccour: USB device? Webcam?03:09
robertzaccourminimec, dazzle03:09
tankiedbian, if it overwrites mbr? then that will corrupt my other partitions03:10
edbianmcurran, the MBR currently has the windows bootloader in it.  The windows bootloader only boots windows.  If you install linux you must write in the HDDs mbr to boot it.03:10
edbiantanki, No it will not.03:10
edbianMBR = Master Boot Record03:10
mcurranno your wrong you can chainload03:10
soreautanki: Installing a different boot loader wont corrupt your partitions03:10
trismjitit: that was my only idea, sorry03:10
mcurranyeah, if you set the linux partition active, it'll read the grub as it's own bootloader. go read up on partitioning03:10
tankiedbian i use another loader03:11
=== Guest55661 is now known as DarkDevil
edbianThe bootloader is actually to big to fit int he MBR.  If you chainload then you tell Grub (in the MBR) to run the windows bootloader on the window partition.03:11
tankiacronis boot loader03:11
soreautanki: Which one?03:11
tankisoreau: acronis boot loader03:11
gerdidytanki: dual booting windows with another os can be dangerous.  you first shrink your windiws partition, then install ubuntu, and then either replace grub the bootloader with windiws' one, or keep it03:11
edbianThe windows boot loader cannot be used to dual boot.03:11
mcurranyour fuckin' wrong dude I'm doing it right now, always have, I know what i'm talking about03:11
=== DarkDevil is now known as Guest83681
bazhangmcurran, no cursing03:11
mcurranand yes you can use the mbr to boot linux03:11
edbianmcurran, You use grub in the MBR to boot linux.  You cannot use the windows bootloader in the MBR to boot linux.03:12
daweefolkwhat are some good command line music players? I have moc and mpd so far. I prefer mpd but it's recently brought up problems "connecting" to localhost.03:12
mcurranyou just copy the grub bootloader to an image and store it on C: and then have mbr load it03:12
minimecrobertzaccour: vlc is probably your friend. --> see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biQ8FXxoXN803:12
soreautanki: Well ubuntu installs grub and auto-detects other OS's and adds entries for them. Any other boot loader is beyond the scope of this channel, so you'd have to configure that to boot ubuntu if it supports it03:12
gerdidyedbian: the windows bootloader can be used to boot linux.03:12
edbianmcurran, The MBR does not load things.  a boot loader in the MBR loads things.03:12

equivocateim trying to connect to my mac and ive tried forums but nothing seems to work03:25
equivocatewas wondering if anyone here can help me03:25
arbitraryI need some way to create a larger partition for this data. . .03:26
gerdidyarbitrary: why cant you create a larger partition?03:27
Polaharbitary: You can expand partitions (into free space) with GParted03:27
=== ninline is now known as coldfire
=== citizen is now known as wbr-citizen
arbitraryI have a partition being filled with data recovered from a dying hard disk, and I need to increase the size of the partition to finish recovering the data, but I can't increase the size as GParted won't assign any more space to it due to the bad superblock (caused by the recovered data). I can't fix the superblock without jeopardizing the integrity of the remaining recovered data.03:28
equivocatecan anyone help me with netatalk?03:28
mcurranhave you tried using fdisk's advanced options for repairing03:29
mcurranis gparted showing it as black03:29
terryarbitrary: How could the recovered data cause a bad superblock?03:29
=== Axlin|AFK is now known as Axlin
arbitraryterry: It was a bad superblock due to read errors on the drive, which since the read errors translate over to the new partition, it reads as a bad suerblock.03:30
mcurrantry force mounting the partition with ntfs3g if it's an ntfs partition, sometimes it stops it from complaining03:30
StrangeCharmwhenever i hit meta+a my windows spread out over my screen like a mac's expose feature. i can't find that shortcut anywhere in the keyboard shortcuts tool. how can i make that stop?03:30
terryarbitrary: I don't think so.03:31
arbitrarymcurran: It's not a matter of mounting it. I just want to increase the size of the (ext4) partition.03:31
mcurranI know, sometimes it helps with gparted though, but only with ntfs03:31
edbianStrangeCharm, sudo apt-get install compiz-config-settings-manager   you can change it in there03:31
terryarbitrary: I think you just need a bigger drive03:31

mcurranI'm trying to setup a small beowulf cluster, but need to solve this first03:34
arbitraryterry: I really don't want to do that, because I want the larger partition to be able to extract data from the recovery partition. It might be possible to store an image of the one partition on the other one, clean the small partition, add more data, write the image, then continue?03:34

captain-obviouswow, tyvm03:48
Tohuwcaptain-obvious: It tells you the problem right in the error. It's not executable. do what Valkyrie said.03:48
mcurranhaven't used netatalk but the solution is changing the configuration and then restarting the daemon03:48
edbiancaptain-obvious, It was downloaded.  it won't let you run it until you change permissions. (this is easy)03:48
captain-obviousi got it, thanks everyone who tried to help :D03:48

razz1edbian: ok so I just install "/" and ignore home? whats the process and what is the best way to get the program settings back to the way they are. Like firefox (I have close to 7 profiles), Zimbra (its installed in the home folder), What issues will I come across? I have a back up of the "/" partition and home as well. Should I first uninstall Zimbra?03:49
aliciapgedbian: it has "(initramfs)" as the prompt03:49
edbianequivocate, We just don't know how.03:49
edbianaliciapg, That's not a full boot.  Did you get any errors?  shift + page up to scroll back and look for some.03:50
equivocateoh even with the link ive offered?03:50
equivocateas im sure thats the fix03:50
naryfaThat's why I always choose to install one system per hard drive.03:50
mcurranequivocate what's your problem in following the solution03:50
equivocatebut no idea how to do it as he hasnt given the code03:50
edbianrazz1, The process is to choose manual partitioning in the installer.  The program settings are all saved in your home folder.03:50
equivocateto change the file03:51
aliciapgedbian: yeah it has quite a few...03:51
equivocateonly how to reset netatalk03:51
edbianaliciapg, Like what?  What's the first one?  The last one?  The one that seems most important to you?03:51
mcurranto restart you would run /etc/init.d/netatalk restart03:51
mcurransudo03:52
equivocateyea i can do that but the forum solver says you need to change he netatalk file03:52
equivocatei just dont know how to change it how he says to03:52

razz1edbian: Thats what I mean, when I reinstall just /, It will not have any programs, but their settings will remain in my home folder, when I install the programs again what will happen to all those .rc files, will they re-associate with the programs. I also have SSH server config, with pub keys in home folder, I am trying to get the config back to the way it was.03:54

edbianrazz1, If you do things correctly the ssh keys will remain in your home folder :)03:55

A|i3Nbut to recap.. 10 y/o server type system. SCSI drives. Dunno what vid card it has. But all I see when i login is background. Lucid version. Clean install. Works in failsafe.05:27
dsnyderschinthaka, The synaptic package manager will try to download from a local mirror.  You shouldn't be hitting the Sri Lanka mirrors unless you are located there.  Because of the different languages, I wouldn't be confident that the mirrors there have the same software that the North American mirrors have.05:30
wliaodsnyders, normally the software is the same.05:31

Guest53351i have a windows partition and I need to backup the entire partition. in a second step i want to write the partion to another harddrive. partimage does that. It also does compress the backup and saves only the used data. Example 320gb harddrive/20GB files => resulting backupfile <= 20GB. As far as I know gparted can not do that09:24
ikoniaGuest53351: gparted will allow you to create partitions, tha tyou can then copy across the data and compress it for you09:25

Since I work primaraly with ubuntu now, i wanted to backup windows while working in ubuntu, then later replace windows with ubuntu and replace the old ubuntu install with windows (sadly i can not delete it entirely).

FSXrobbiethe1st, fulldaykg: When I reinstall Fglrx it only builds for the generic kernel. And got for generic-ck.10:57
robbiethe1stjayant: If you want to, you can create a desktop shortcut to "gnome-terminal -e alasmixer" which should launch it for you10:57
robbiethe1stFSX: Are you reinstalling from the other kernel, or from the "problem" kernel10:58
razieliyojayant, or you could install alsamixergui if you're on X10:58
robbiethe1stFSX: you've got to reinstall it command-line I think, and you -have- to do it from the kernel you want to work10:58
FSXrobbiethe1st: THe default one.10:58
fulldaykgFSX: hmmm, I'm pretty new to Ubuntu... you may have to compile fglrx against the ck source to get it working10:58

dr0idhi, i want to know the difference between read+write and execute11:43
dr0idi know execute would be something like executing it like, a bash script or php script or ruby script, but what if its a simple text file ?11:43
fulldaykgdr0id: same thing11:43
fulldaykgdr0id: execute allows the file to be interpreted as something that will DO something11:44
Unknown0BC1Hi. I just installed. Ubuntu 10.10 maverick. But cant get the networkmanager to properly add a mobile dun connection.11:44
fulldaykgdr0id: rather that something you just read or write to11:44
dr0idfulldaykg: so, if i have a simple text file that just stores some basic info, then execute isnt relevant to that file, right ?11:46
Unknown0BC1I can add the connection but it does not appear on the list of available connections. Is it just me ?11:46
ileacan someone respond to a question please i have asked it 2 times11:46
fulldaykgdr0id: typically executable text files have a line at the very top that tells the computer what interpreter to use to execute it, i.e. ruby/bash/python ... ... well if you attemped to execute it (./myFileMarkedAsExecutable) it's would probably give you an error11:47
dr0idok, thanks11:47

Adkq093robbiethe1st: troubles like?12:22
robbiethe1stAdkq093: Low framerate, (possibly) no AA - It's an Intel card, after all!12:23

ubotturaven: 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.13:28

terry_raven: Just tell it you want to share  your internet connection with the other NIC.13:29
terry_raven: What you are basically doing is setting your PC up to be a router for another.  So you do IPMASQUERADE via NAT (NAT = Network Address Translation).13:30
martijn_dekkerCould anyone please help me with my dualscreen problem?13:30
raventerry_, connection to main router and clients using one wlan device - ubuntu "router" will not be wired13:31
PudabudigadaHi, I'm trying to create a txt in mousepad that will be viewable on a windows machine, which settings should I choose when saving?13:32
terry_raven: Oh.  You want your wlan device to act as a wireless router for multiple wifi connections to that PC?13:32
terry_raven: Is that what you want to do?13:32
terry_raven: If so, first make sure your wifi wlan device supports AP mode.  (Most don't.)13:33
raventerry_, right13:33
terry_raven: If it doesn't support AP mode, you are out of luck.13:33
ravenok...13:33
terry_raven: And you'll just need to get yourself a wireless router.13:33

Socky_hey guys, im folliwng an artice to add mp3 support for mpd, and i typed this "sudo apt-get build-dep mpd && apt-get source mpd"  Step 2 says to "go into the extracted source dir and go into the debian/rules file and modify the line which says DEB_CONFIGURE_USER_FLAGS"  The problem is I dont know where that file is.  Any ideas?13:35
terry_raven: And if you want to just plug your wireless router into the existing router, you can just turn off the DHCP server in the wireless router and it will act as a wireless bridge. (And still accept connections from multiple clients.)13:35
wizothauriswulfa: it works now, thanks13:35

terry_Socky_: As Gnea says; Since it is more than likely in  your home dir, just do: ls mpd/  #And hit tab key a couple times.13:43

Pudabudigadamehdi_, I had a problem with sound coming out through the onboard sound card as opposed to the discrete one, it may be that.13:46

randomnikhi. i reinstalled windows. instead of restoring grub with live cd, i loaded ubuntu using supergrub2 cd. i am now in ubuntu and everything works fine15:34
Taosth0r: im gonna delete linux and ubuntu then just purge the MBR15:34
randomnikbut when i type sudo grub-update it shows that he does update, but when i restart computer, grub is not there, and winxp loads15:34

sacarlsonrandomnik: did you install with wubi from within windows or from a livecd install?15:37
physically_fitbye people15:38
randomniki have dual boot for years now, i usually do restore grub with live cd, but i thought booting into actual ubuntu would be easier15:38
randomnikPaddy_NI, gonna try, tnx. sacarlson, there is your answer15:38
Paddy_NIrandomnik: it is... just install the bootloader in the correct place15:38
Paddy_NI:)15:38
randomnikPaddy_NI, /usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: cannot stat `sda'.15:40
sacarlsonrandomnik: my one liner method if booted from livecd: sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt; sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda # change sda1 and sda to your choice15:40
randomnikafter sudo grub-install sda15:40
redboattest15:40

oCeanredboat: we see you15:41
randomnikfaster then live cd15:41

hihihi100edbian, I created Trash, i cannot cd to it17:23
edbianhihihi100, Did you create .Trash?   or Trash  ??17:23
hihihi100.Trash/17:24
edbianhihihi100, Who owns it?  What are the permissions on it?17:24
hihihi100drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 2011-03-19 18:21 .Trash17:24
hihihi100root17:24
lusmusruan: i thought i17:24
ruanlusmus: i think sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop   should do it?17:25
edbianhihihi100, That is bizarre.  Anybody should be able to cd into it.  What does 'whoami' output?  Are you root right now?17:25
lusmusruan: how much diff is it from installing from a livecd.. the main thing is that i wanted to install like live cd but with a command line interface with the installer17:25
hihihi100root@hihihi100-laptop:~# , not hihihi100@hihihi100-laptop:~$, so Im root17:26
hihihi100rap, whoami shows hihihi10017:26
ruanlusmus: well its a cli install17:26
hihihi100edbian, ignore that17:26
edbianhihihi100, ok, but you're root in the bash shell so...  Can you ls -la .Trash   (just look into it without going into it?)17:26
hihihi100edbian, that was a different terminal17:26
edbianhihihi100, What was a different terminal?  I can see your screenshot here...17:27
hihihi100edbian, in another terminal, I was trying to access trash17:27
hihihi100like hihihi10017:27
lusmusruan: its why i got like this.. or is it the same on whole cd on altanative cd=17:27
edbianhihihi100, So you are inside it?  Is it empty?  Can you access Trash using gksudo nautilus?17:27
ruanlusmus: well im not sure17:28
