bAdSystemsHelloWorld321, what seems to be your issue.00:01
terryastley: I'm not sure what your situation is, but sounds like you need an application to control your wireless connections.  If that is the case, I would suggest installing wicd.  sudo apt-get install wicd00:01

Jancsy-anyone willing to help me too, please?00:10
jwandborgJancsy-: What do you need help with?00:10
bAdSystemsHelloWorld321,  i could not make out his words, he seems in a hurry. But if he was correct, then i must inform you that you cannot simply "copy and paste" your database from one system to the next. Only if the systems are of the same operating system.00:11

Jancsy-i'd like to start it on ubuntu00:11
rbnswartzbrock you know for certain that it doesn't work? Have you tried using the cheese photo booth to test it?00:11

Jancsy-nope, i don't see any importance.00:12
Jancsy-yes, i tried.00:12
astleyterry: yes00:12
bAdSystemsHelloWorld321, with but few exceptions, you cannot simply take somthing working in linux, and copy it into windows. For more reasons then it is worth listing.00:12
terryastley: Looks like your wireless device is not supported. You might try trading it for another00:12
rbnswartzjwandborg I don't think wine is does drivers that well are you sure on that one?00:12
HelloWorld321I guess I'll leave my files where they are, then.00:13
jwandborgrbnswartz: Not at all, just out of the blue. (cc Jancsy-)00:13
brockrbnswarts      yes i have tried and it does not work00:13
Jancsy-actually wine could do nothing :))00:13
brockrbnswarts  it says no device found00:13
Jancsy-someone told me that VLC could help me, but I don't have any idea how. i'm too new on ubuntu :)00:13
bAdSystemsHelloWorld321, if at all possible, i would find a equal or better to all your windows needs, then delete vista and become a "pure" ubuntu user. As someone who uses all three systems everyday... i can say with great confidence that windows is, and always will be, a horrible system to its very core. From the kernel to the userland, it wreaks of horrible code.00:14
astleyterry: thats not true, i had it working before, but the driver disappeard...i forgot how i did so in the first place00:14
jwandborgJancsy-: I'm having a hard time trying to see how VLC would help you with driver problems.00:14
terryastley: Oh, ok... Well look at this: http://ubuntulinux.co.in/blog/ubuntu/wifi-card-ralink-5390-configuration-in-ubuntu-10-10-64-bit/00:14
Jancsy-:)00:14
rbnswartzbrock then you don't have the driver. Depending on who made it and what device it is there might not be a linux driver00:14
gluonmanedbian, so I got the following: http://pastebin.com/R5L1hPxe00:15
bAdSystemsHelloWorld321, windows was never ment to be used in todays world, it was build to be a stand alone system, with no internet. You set it up, and use it. Everything put into it was ment to be put in via CD or other input. Thus, it cannot survive in a modern world.00:15
brockrbnswarts   how would i go about getting the driver00:15
terryastley: http://www.downloadatoz.com/driver/articles/ralink-rt3090-rt5390-pcie-wireless-lan-linux-driver-for-ubuntu-10-10.html00:16
bAdSystemsHelloWorld321, if you must use it, i suggest virtual box.  Anyway , i must take my leave. I am needed elsewhere.00:16
Jancsy-jwandborg: so, any chances to make it work?00:17
rbnswartzbrock If the restricted drivers tool can't find anything and google draws up a blank you might have to wait till someone writes one.00:17
phoenixsamprashow to install the 'import' command?00:17

vantageGaryD there is a make.conf right... ?02:30
syn-ack!parroting02:30
astleysorry i had to correct my spelling02:31
syn-ackGaryD, also it should be something like sudo -i/s. never sudo su02:31
GaryDsyn-ack: they are gone, but why would there be 7 instances started by root, when I have 3 as user, and I am only using 1?02:31
syn-ackGaryD, Don't know. Never had that happen here.02:32
GaryDsyn-ack: thanks for the correction. I am not too much of an expert on the terminal yet. I have always just used sudo....but I have used sudo su.02:32

bazhangStarminn, why not just use video download helper addon02:33
vantagegaryd is ubuntu's core way different from other distros like gentoo/slackware?02:33

syn-ackvantage, I have multiple terminals open on my system(S) every day.02:35
vantagesyn-ack i meant for configurations purposes02:35
syn-ackI do too.02:35
gbear14275deww, work around... meaning you couldn't get the ricoh card reader working?02:35
dewwgbear14275: yeah02:36
gbear14275deww, dang...02:36
dewwgbear14275: same with my netbook. i didn't really try anything, just noticed the cards dont pick up. these are all sdhc cards i have02:36
clayton@gbear: unplug the card (if it's plugged in) and then plug it in and type into the terminal: "dmesg | tail" that's the kernel log, there should be something there about it being plugged in and maybe an error02:36
gbear14275this one is 4GB so I'm guessing it is sdhc02:36
GaryDvantage: to the best of my knowledge....yes. Even debian and ubuntu differ a lot.02:37
syn-acklike I said. Yes and No.02:37
gbear14275clayton, no dmesg... thats not good :(02:37
GaryDvantage: you can configure anything on ubuntu in the terminal. gui applications are just using "terminal" commands in the background.02:38
raidogbear14275: use /var/log/messages instead of dmesg02:39
raidogbear14275: Also, I had a T61p and never had an issue with the card reader, so this should be figured out.02:39

tfidfit just shows up the dmesg messages instead of going to sleep03:42
Br0sephStalinthanks sagaci03:42
tfidfthis seems a very weird bug to me03:42
sagaciBr0sephStalin, what do you get stuck at03:43
tfidfi checked on google, i have not yet seen this issue reported03:44
cosmoI just want some sound back, is it too much to ask? the computer isn't much fun without sound03:44
tfidfmay be i should re-install from scratch instead of upgrade03:44

eamonwhy can't i make a shoortcut to a wine program04:02
eamon?04:02
joshmcdogarrhea: sudo isn't supposed to care about what you are doing ;) perhaps there's a program in root's path that's not in the current user's path, and they want to use it (the converse often holds true).04:02

eamondr0id: it's for .tar.gz files04:17
syrinx_xlogik: hmmmm, can you find out what package it is that's causing the error?04:18
eamon.tar.gz is a tar file with gzip compression04:18
eamon.tar is just a bunch of files stuck together04:18
rcmaehlwhat is a tar file?04:18
aZuldunn, i looked at gparted04:18
aZuand it said the install made 3 partitions04:18
aZuone is swap and one is probably the system....the last one i'm confused about04:19

hezinhohelp - how do i set up usb wireless on ubuntu 10.1004:22
aZulol04:22
aZusorry, just very frustrated04:22
eamongzip and gz are the same thing dr0id .tar.gz just means its a tar file that's gzipped04:23
nit-witoven_, have you tried it from the menu or a key press04:23
dr0ideamon: true. but instead of tarballing a file, anyone would just gzip, becuz gzip = tar + compression. isnt it ? :)04:23
eamonif you want to gzip a load of files then you need to tar them all together first04:24
dr0idi have been using them for a long time, just ever gave them a thought :D04:24

dr0idthat was the answer i was looking for. thanks :)04:24
eamondr0id: 1000 files --> 1000 gzip files OR 1 .tar.gz file04:24
dr0id1000 files -> 1 gzip not possible ? just like .zip ?04:25

ubottuThere are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information. Examples: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mint), LinuxMCE (support in #linuxmce), CrunchBang (support in #crunchbang), BackTrack (support in #backtrack-linux), Ultimate Edition04:35
ldunnBackTrack is a distro focused on security04:35

jrtaylorivFor example, I'm trying to build gimp, which needs a newer version of libbabl, but I don't want to just download a newer version of BABL and build from source and make install, because that would (a) possibly break something since it's not tested with the other installed packages (b) not be maintainable with aptitude anymore06:07

bullgard4How can I check if my IBM Thinkpad T42 has outdated Thinkpad BIOS/EC firmware?07:39
shentinoI would most likely shut the system down, boot from a live CD07:40
mrdebshentino: and then?07:40
mrdebdd?07:40
shentinonow, what you do next depends on some things07:40
shentinoNo, not dd07:40
mrdebi dont want the larger disk to be limited in size if the origianl is smaller07:40
shentinogetting partition math right with disparate disk sizes is tricky07:40
mrdebok07:40
shentinowhat OS are you using?07:40
mrdeb10.10 x6407:40
shentinoand what filesystem is /boot and /?07:41
mrdebext2 and 407:41
shentinook, sounds simple.07:41
shentinodo you care if your inode creation times get mucked?07:41
mrdebwhat does that mean07:41
shentinoprobably not.07:41
shentinoBasically what you want to do is07:42
shentino1.  Partition your new drive.07:42
shentino2.  Copy the root partition contnets over to it07:42
shentino3.  Update the bootloader so that the boot sector of the new drive will load grub07:43
shentinodouble check that your /etc/fstab is sane after the migration07:43
mrdebcopy with what partitions, so that i don't get permission issues accessing it later07:43
shentinoprobably a mv -r or a cp -r07:43
mrdebwill the uuid change?07:43
shentinouse the live cd to mount both of them at the same time07:43
shentinothe uuid will probably change, hence the part about updating fstab07:43
shentinoand don't forget about grub.cfg if needed07:44
mrdeband how do you install grub to the new disk07:44
shentinoupdate-grub probably07:44
mrdebprobably?07:44
shentinobut I'm no expert.  What I've described does mesh well with common sense though07:44
mrdebi dont know07:44

randomuserBr0sephStalin, for a lot of things, you can add the -v switch, for 'verbose' to see what's going on. Some of them allow multiple v's, like -vvv to be extra verbose.  With others, it means something else (usually version) but its probably save to include a -v with almost everything just to see whats going on08:20

I got into this mess because about a week ago i got a tool kit in win7, after i removed it apparently it did alot of damage, i was trying to partition my drive so i could backup my stuff when my pc froze and windows would no longer start. Boot manager was missing. So i went to ubuntu to download there netbook os. I have always heard of ubuntu and wanted to try it. Thinking it wouldnt be that hard to bu10:12
sargonrosern an iso with ubunto i ran ahead and installed it. here i am and this is the extent of my knowledge10:12

zetheroois there an Intel control panel for the graphics like Nvidia and ATI have?10:19
Pr0jectRec0ntwitch, but now, I see my setting in Sys -> Pref-> Monitor -> Resolution was wrong :) it was 1360x768 where it should have been 1366x768..10:20

twitchPr0jectRec0n: you can download the nvidia proprietary drivers directly from nvidia if you want and install ... but remember it will then be out of ubuntu repos so everytime a kernel update comes down you will have to reinstall the mod's10:22
Pr0jectRec0nso, yeah, now the other question - i'm connecting an external display - that gets detected and i want different views (not mirror views) on both screens & I think the external display is 1360x768 - I open a flash video in firefox and move it to external display - however if I full screen it, it plays in monitor 1 - why ?10:22

homebrewcidercheers, will check it out11:47
Jordan_Uraven: There is nothing wrong with the iso. dd just takes the bits straight from the CD and you said yourself that "mount -o loop" mounts it without the ;1 (if I understood you correctly).11:47
oCeanreal_ate: PPA's are unsupported11:47
ravenJordan_U, right but how to mount it with nautilus correctly by doubleclick?11:48
real_ate oCean: yes i understand that, but i was just hoping someone could help me purge my changes11:48
bazhangblkdg, transmission? deluge? which torrent client are you referring to11:48

lorizeanheyhey, got a problem setting up compiz-wallpaper/nautilus. When I choose several wallpapers in the plugin and then disable the nautilus show_desktop (like suggested in many guides), I get no background at all (i.e. just a black desktop that doesn't refresh).12:32
ravenBen64, i want the cdroms on hd and mount it from it for example in virtual box but it cannot read it12:32
lorizeanusing ubuntu 10.1012:32
Ben64maybe you're mounting incorrectly?12:33
ravenBen64, i only mount by doubleclick with the archive-mounting tool and with isos written by brasero it works12:33

smwJak3, but putty is useless on linux. There is no reason not to type ssh user@host15:12
scarleoHeleny: Then check again if it's detected15:12
eBittinbtw is there any good way to get the volumekeys and eject key on a mac keyboard working on Debian PPC?15:13
Jak3it depends... if you are a newb then u use putty.... if your an expert user then type the ssh and the host15:14

drcAdkq093: Do I know EVERYTHING that's there? No, but if I wanted to place something nasty, I'd place it somewhere that NEVER gets deleted, like BIOS,  not a visable partition..16:33

Sary_how long will I be waiting for auto hide then? lol as in, how long til natty is supposed to be full release?17:34
coz_Sary_,  on natty open ccsm  go into the unity plugin and tick autohide17:34

ubottuJak3: There are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information. Examples: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mint), LinuxMCE (support in #linuxmce), CrunchBang (support in #crunchbang), BackTrack (support in #backtrack-linux), Ultimate Edition17:34
Sary_Aw I don't have natty yet, I'm brand new to linux and am not sure if downloading an alpha version is a good idea for me17:34
Incarus6themill, right, its etch. looks like he mixed up debian with an ubuntu ppa, that was the reason i was poting to #debian17:35
xrdodrxRealEyes, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=281865 might be a good starting place17:35
Jak3i did.... dood17:35
dnivraJak3, please read what ubottu just told you above ^^.17:35
red2kicSary_: Nah. It's never a good idea for newcomers.17:35
RealEyesthanks xrdodrx17:35
Sary_Jak3 you downloaded natty, you mean?17:35
dnivraJak3, then go to the appropriate channel and ask :).17:35
Sary_red2kic, yeah, that's what I figured, so I might just default to desktop edition and forget all about this netbook edition,17:35
Incarus6themill, *pointing17:35
Sary_I've already changed my swappiness for faster loading and tried changing to Unity 2D too but it was too slow,17:36

Sary_Things are working pretty great and I'm learning fast, but I just REALLY want to auto-hide that sidebar, really bad17:36

PolahSary_, with Natty ther will be no distinguishment betweem desktop and netbook17:37
Sary_or ubuntu, I guess, is what I should be referring to it as17:37
esing123I must know what happened to my ubuntu !!!!17:37
dnivra!ask | esing12317:37
ubottuesing123: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)17:37
red2kicSary_: The whole point of linux is to customize it to your likings. Right now, you're using desktop environment Ubuntu Devs have set it up for their end-users. You can change anything you want -- but I understand you're new and don't even know how to do that in first place.17:37
Jak3sary_ type sudo GNOME-Panel-autohide_side -d 5017:37
scarleoquiel: You mean bluetooth mouse?17:37

Sary_Polah - yes I heard that, and that's fine, just excellent... I like the sidebar if I can have it auto hide17:37
coz_Polah,  well not exactly... you can log into either Unity = netbook or  calssic gnome =  regular gnome of sorts17:37
Sary_oh woah ! Jak3 really? Okay hold on lemme give it a try17:37
arandIs there a way to find (and rename) all files with filenames which would be win-incompatible?17:37
quielscarleo, yes, but the ones without the usb-bluetooth thing.17:37
coz_Sary_,  and as I said  you have to tick the autohide option under the compiz unity plugin17:38
quielscarleo, the way apples mice connect17:38
esing123Suddenly out of nothing I could observe that a NEW kernel has been installed !!! Now I have two Kernel in my Bootloader (Grub2)!! Was there a new kernel release recently or is this something dangerous/malecious???17:38
scarleoquiel: If you have built-in bluetooth it works17:38
coz_but  #ubuntu+1  is the more appropriate channel for ubuntu 11.0417:38
gimpy4685esing123: You must have updated, newer kernels come out all the time.17:38
