chuckbartowskihi digirak dont think i have those options in lubuntu it's a lot different to ubuntu, the only thing i could find is power management daemon but dont think thats it00:10
digirakchuckbartowski: yes thats the thing00:10
zabomberSuparNoobie100: Have you checked out virtualbox?00:10
nicholas_How can I copy instructions from my chat window ?00:10
chuckbartowskithanks mate00:11
digirakthe daemon has a gui interface called power management00:11
SuparNoobie100zabomber: the hd died and i have a new hd. I dont have macosx.00:11
chuckbartowskihmm mine doesnt have a gui anywhere00:11
Jordan_Uiceroot: It's still a good idea to use diff -u. Diff with no other options is almost useless for patch submission as there is no context, meaning almost any change to the file (even one unrelated to the area being patched) will prevent the patch from applying properly.00:11
digirakchuckbartowski: check that and change ur option to suspend instead of hibernate00:11

dinexiUbuntuByte: 1) which browser? 2) which flash plugin? 3) there is no chrome for ubuntu.00:12

dinexiiceroot: I thought it is chromium.00:13
UbuntuBytenah Chrome browser, Adobe Flash 10.200:13
chuckbartowskiahh i think i found it digi00:14
Jordan_Udinexi: Chromium is the open source project from which Chrome is made. Both are available for Ubuntu.00:14
xanguaChromium is open source dinexi00:14
itaylor57UbuntuByte: I use chromium and haven'y seen the problem00:14

nicholas_Jordan: so what will  mv ~/.wine ~/.wine-old actually do ?00:15
chuckbartowskihmmm strange thing is, that it is set to suspend, but when opening lid i dont get anything just blank screen and linux basically halts there00:15
nicholas_I followed Jordan's instruction and get:00:16
nicholas_nicholas@nicholas-laptop:~$  mv ~/.wine ~/.wine-old00:16
nicholas_nicholas@nicholas-laptop:~$  mv ~/.wine ~/.wine-old00:16
nicholas_mv: cannot stat `/home/nicholas/.wine': No such file or directory00:16
FloodBot3nicholas_: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.00:16
Jordan_Unicholas_: All of wine's settings, and the virtual 'C:' drive, are stored in the directory ~/.wine. By renaming this directory you cause wine to create a new one on the next run. It's like deleting the directory except you can still restore it later by naming it back again.00:17
SuparNoobie100mv -r?00:17
SuparNoobie100oh you dont have .wine00:17

onwardHumpf, why is it that Maverick's GNOME runs so slowly in a Intel single core 1.5GHz with 512MB of RAM?00:19
Jordan_Unicholas_: You don't appear to have a .wine directory. You should have one if you've actually been using wine though.00:19
SuparNoobie100Docfxit: you can start by removing all the games00:19
chuckbartowskihmm tried that too, not sure what it is but on xp it doesnt do it only on linux00:19

nicholas_How do U turn red when speaking to me ?00:24
cubi_Jordan_U: installing Ubuntu on ntfs without needing windows to do it00:24
Jordan_Ucubi_: Why?00:24
xanguaQuintin: download !minimal and install lubuntu-desktop00:25
Quintinyea, that's not what I asked.  I'd rather not download and burn again if I can help it00:25

cubi_Jordan_U: I'll get the graphics card fixed at some point, and don't want to bother repartitioning00:26
DocfxitQuintin I think I'm out of space.00:26
QuintinDocfxit: think?  try df -h at a terminal window, or use that disk-free thingie under accessories00:26
Jordan_Unicholas_: You don't have a .wine directory because you already successfuly renamed it to ".wine-old".00:27
boumagiday from oz00:27
boumai wanted to talk to someone about some differences between the desktop and server versions of ubuntu, before i go reinstalling00:27
Jordan_Ucubi_: It's a *lot* less of a bother to repartition.00:28
DocfxitQuintin I think this is where my problem is /dev/sda2 5.6G 5.4G 0 = Available00:28
cubi_Jordan_U: possibly. but I feel hacky :)00:28
boumabasically i am running a desktop, but the primary purpose is for running kate/pdflatex/matlab/mathematica/ifort, thats 99% of its use, plus vlc/mplayer and gnome desktop (stripped down as much as possible)00:28
tensorpuddingbouma: the only difference is the packages installed, and you can switch between them by installing the right metapackage00:28
Xionhow can i eliminate empathy from keyrin promt at boot start up00:29
QuintinDocfxit: ok, where is that mounted?00:29
DocfxitIs it possible to re-partition while booted into the OS?00:29
nicholas_Bot says  As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)00:29
nicholas_What does bot mean ?00:29
Jordan_Ucubi_: It's not worth it and while I've done it I don't really want to outline all of the steps required.00:29
DocfxitQuintin It's mounted during boot up.00:29
boumatensorpudding: right, cause i wanted to get rid of the mDNS avahi system, but wine depends on it, so all such deps and the deb's themselves are identical?00:29
Quintinnicholas_: it's not a person.  it's a program that responds only to certain input00:29
Xionnicholas_:) bot is a machine00:30
tensorpuddingnicholas_: a bot is a program that provides responses, it's not a person00:30
QuintinDocfxit: no kidding?  mounted _where_ though?00:30
nicholas_I know that00:30
cubi_Jordan_U: fine. did you figure it out on your own or will google be able to help?00:30
guitar431Irc bots are scripts who have a simple parsing logic.00:30
DocfxitQuintin I don't know how to answer your question.00:30
Quintincubi_: what is your problem that jordan recommends repartitioning to solve?00:30
nicholas_But how do I do the ! tab thing00:30
Jordan_Ucubi_: On my own. I'm betting that google will be mostly useless.00:30
tensorpuddingbouma: ubuntu server lacks a gui, and it is generally recommended not to install one if you're using server version00:31
itaylor57nicholas_: enter the first few letters of who you wish to address, then press the tab button and it will automatically expand the name for you00:31
Xionok now that we all got clear what bot is,i need to eliminate empathy from keyrin at boot,,i want it to autostart with on inconvenience00:31
QuintinDocfxit: when you type df -h , it shows the mount point!  "Mounted on:"00:31
guitar431like this !language00:31
cubi_Quintin: installing ubuntu to an image file on an ntfs partition instead of resizing the partition and creating a linux one00:31
itaylor57nicholas_: just like that00:31

itaylor57nicholas_: when you use my nick it shows as color for me00:32
nicholas_itaylor57, Gotya thanks00:32
QuintinDocfxit: ok, try aptitude clean, then consider removing large packages00:32
Xionnicholas_:) u flooting the channel for no reason at all,,people with issues need the channel to solve them,,so please00:33
tensorpuddingyou can send text in a different color but this is usually obnoxious and not all clients support it00:33
nicholas_Jordan_U, Can I just delete the old wine?00:33
Jordan_Unicholas_: Yes.00:33
DocfxitQuintin I do have plenty of room on another partition but I'm working on it remotely.00:33
nicholas_Xion, Ure a bot, correct?00:33
exutuxcubi_: my mind doesn't able to understand why do you wanna do that O.O00:33
boumatensorpudding: hrm, also eg, evolution seems impossible to remove without removing the whole desktop00:33
Xionnicholas_:) u wish00:33
Xioncan i remove empathy from keyring00:33
tensorpuddingbouma: evolution is depended on for a good number of things00:33
nicholas_Xion, Are U or not?00:33
QuintinDocfxit: no reason you can't do what I suggested remotely.  also, dpkg-query -Wf '${Installed-Size}\t${Package}\n' | sort -n  will list packages by size00:34
cubi_exutux: it's easy to get rid of later on, whereas repartitioning now needs lots of defragging etc00:34
greg__Im new to linux, how can i change owner permissions for my /home folder? I can view files but cant cut/copy/paste anything.00:34
exutuxcubi_: but do you have windows installed?00:34
Xionbouma:) i remove evolution with out affecting my desktop00:35
cubi_exutux: yes but it doesn't boot at the moment. safe mode does though ... maybe I could just run wubi through there?00:35
boumatensorpudding: do you think another distro might better suit my preferences?00:35
tensorpuddingwhat exactly is this that you want?00:35
boumaXion: youre not running gnome right?00:35
Xionbouma:) yes,ubuntu 10.4 LTS00:36
Xiongnome desktop00:36
exutuxcubi_: I don't think so00:36
tensorpuddingif what you want is a server-esque install with gnome but without as much stuff in it as ubuntu, you might want a different distro00:36
Xionbouma:) try linux mint gnome00:37
tensorpuddingbut you can customize an ubuntu server install to your liking00:37
tensorpuddingit just takes more work00:37
Quintinbouma: what is it you want?00:37
ohziebouma: If you want to remove it so badly you could uninstall the ubuntu-desktop metapackage and then install gnome separately.00:37
tensorpuddingmostly installing things that it won't have that you want00:37
exutuxcubi_: I think that best way is to check out NTFS by chkdsk or ntfsfix from linux00:37
boumaXion: ah, i have my uncle running 10.04 cause he cant set things up beyond clicking on a deb from a web site like skype, which is handled very well, but then had to put in a bunch of ppa's to get more recent vlc eg00:37
ohziebouma: although it seems like it would take a lot of effort and be a pita00:37

Xionin users and grups is there a group for apps like empathy00:45
exutuxcubi_: uhmmmm Windows run in safe graphics mode or in safe mode OS????00:45
kk9822ok xion i will try00:46
QuintinDocfxit: did you do `aptitude clean' ?00:46
chuckbartowskiQuintin, thanks for advice mate, Jordan_U helped me i was just trying to install firefox 4 and wasnt sure how, but got there sorry im a noob with linux, but trying to learn so dont have to pester you guys :)00:46
boumaohzie: the thing is, sometimes i have eg, mathematica running on a calc overnight, and i fully appreciate that it is in some ways the wrong tool, thats why i prototype with it and then reimplement in fortran (intel fort is pretty darn efficient in this domain) but i want the mathematica prototype to be correct so i can use it to compare against the results from ifort so i some verification of correctness00:46
cubi_exutux: the safe mode that's chosen in windows boot menu instead of starting normally00:46
Xionkk9822:) and is a debian to00:46
kk9822i will check00:47
Polahitaylor57: I got it to work; I was using the wrong encryption type.00:47
itaylor57Polah: good to hear00:47
DocfxitQuintin yes. That looked like it ran but didn't seem to free up any space. I'll run it again.00:48
nicholas_WINE question. How do I launch an exe programme installed with Wine?00:48
boumaohzie: plus the large community and dev pace of ubuntu is a big advantage, although im really not sure i like where the desktop is going, as it is i always turn off 3d wm/compositors00:48
exutuxcubi_: well I don't think that you can install something in this situation....but you can try00:48
bazhangnicholas_, right click open with wine00:48
red2kicnicholas_: wine Win32virus.exe00:48
Quintinnicholas_: usually it gets installed in your wine submenu in gnome... otherwise use "wine <program>" from command line00:48
boumanicholas_: right click and check that it has execute permission for your user, then double click :)00:49
irssipimpQuintin: i know that, but i felt, that this was not the right way to do this system wide.00:49
snake__is a universal binary mac application exec file able to run on linux? (it sure sounds like it should.)00:49
nicholas_Quintin, The problem is I dont have the wine submenu00:49
bazhangsnake__, no00:49
berefeiraanyone using miredo?00:49
Quintinnicholas_: logout and log in again, perhaps00:49
rwwsnake__: No. The "Universal" in "Universal Binary" means that it runs on PPC and Intel OS X installs.00:49
irssipimpQuintin: but i found /etc/default/locale, which was what i needed00:49
DocfxitQuintin After running it again it still shows Zero available00:49
ohziebouma: A lot of people do. Everyone has their thing. 10.04 is the first version I've ever actully used the window manager in gnome(minus compositing though.) I was using gnome with xfwm4 for the longest time.00:49
nicholas_Quintin, will try00:49
snake__rww, oh thanks for clearing that up for me :P00:50
=== eric is now known as Palm
boumanicholas_: no matter if you're going to run from the prompt with ./winprog.exe, or from a gui, you need exec attribute set00:50
exutuxcubi_: my advise is always to resize your partition and install Ubuntu normally00:50
nicholas_Quintin, how do I log out?00:50
ohziebouma: But I, personally, have just had better luck with deb based systems than anything else, and Ubuntu is prettier than vanilla debian. :300:50

I tried booting with irqpoll option, but then it gets stuck and never boots. Recovery mode also doesn't work. Any idea what's the matter?00:55

Azzy_112358Hello, I was hoping someone could help me with a little sound problem, my headphones are not detected, at all. Internal audio shows up, a friend who has ubuntu says that when I plug my headphones in, in the sound manager I should see a "jack" or "headphones" option show up on outbut, but all I have is internal...00:57
chuckbartowskired2kic,  didnt think of using other desktop, it's just reading a novel and if shut laptop down i know it can read it later00:58

nicholas_bouma you need exec attribute set    meaning?00:58
Azzy_112358The computer doesn't even "notice" them. They are plugged in and the alerts from IRC are coming from my speakers.00:58
boumacan anyone tell me a little about arch, can i get some of the same effect as use flags, eg if a ubuntu package doesnt have certain compilation options then im either stuck with deps or without some functionality, but without the indeterminacy that can be gentoo00:59
bazhangbouma, arch? as in archlinux?00:59
Azzy_112358I've installed Ubuntu before and it didn't work either, never managed to go past this problem00:59
boumaim imagining instead of binaries for every possible combination of use flag and arch, just a couple of common sets00:59
chuckbartowskiQuintin, with evince is there a way of making a shortcut in start menu? i dont see a link to it in my start menu i can launch it though from terminal01:00
boumabazhang: yup, as in archlinux01:00
Azzy_112358Same version, it's clean, all I had to do was edit the grub, "acpi = copy_dsdt". Other than that, it's mint condition01:00

xanguabouma:  /join #archlinux01:00

bazhangdbugger, mediatomb? others?01:00
chuckbartowskiQuintin, sorry i'm new to linux, im using lubuntu 10.10, the start menu is like windows start button where it lists all programs, lubuntu has it's own version,01:01

dbuggerXion, Im not too savvy on Linuxy-things. I like things working pretty much out of the box. If I have to meddle with the system, Id rather not do it.01:02

guedesavHello again. I just upgrades my karmic to lucid, it wasn't bootin. Now I tried booting with "noapic nolapic" and without "quiet splash", and the "disabling IRQ" messages stopped, but it suddenly enters graphic mode and sets the splash screen(even though I told it NOT TO) and my screen is all flickering, so I can't see a damn thing. Can someone help me now?01:26
ohsixbazhang: padevchooser is deprecated/obsolete01:26
Azzy_112358Mmm, no01:26
guitar431if you go back to windows you will go back to surveilance, big brother and an open standard back door for the fbi01:27
SuparNoobie100nothing to hide!01:27
Azzy_112358I take that back, padevchooser is installed and updated.01:27
bazhangohsix, in favor of what? its in maverick and natty still01:27
nicholas_I installed Palm desktop via Wine but do not have a shortcut nor for it nor for wine...01:27
pssalmansacarlson: i am on a normal desktop with no wifi... just wired network and i have uninstalled the default network manager and installed wicd but same problem01:27
Zupis the Ubuntu support channel?01:27
bazhangZup, yes01:27
ac7ssZup: yup01:27
Zupbazhang: thankyou01:28
IAMAgirlac7ss, excellent. How do I do that ie how do I "use the bootloader (you mean grub right?) to use an old kernel" -- no wireless. I'm greatly vanilla (+picasa,VLC,IRC,wine never-used, abiword, cheese) and ethernet-connected. --  Now I remember that grub/2? gievs me this long list at startup (bla bla, bla bla recovery, bla bla, ...)  Maybe this is a list of old kernels?01:28
nikkiihow do i list all users on ubuntu?01:28
ohsixbazhang: pavucontrol, and i don't see padevchooser around anymore01:28
bazhangnikkii, on your system?01:28
sacarlsonpssalman: when it's disconnected what is seen in ifconfig?  and route ? also see what becomes of the contents of /etc/resolv.conf01:28
bazhang!info padevchooser | ohsix01:28
chmkQuintin, I need to recover that HDD, the problem is, there are a few partitions, one of them is windows and the windows loads, but there is an unpartitioned space that I want to install Ubuntu on, but I can't partition that empty space, it gives me an input/output error gparted and in disk manager.01:28
ubottuohsix: padevchooser (source: padevchooser): PulseAudio Device Chooser. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.9.3-2ubuntu4 (maverick), package size 19 kB, installed size 132 kB01:28
Azzy_112358I believe Linux is detecting my soundcard correctly, at least the name is right01:28
ohsixbazhang: you have to go out of your way to install it01:29
Azzy_112358But it's like the jack doesn't exist. Nor the inbuild microphone01:29
guedesavHello again. I just upgrades my karmic to lucid, it wasn't bootin.

Can someone help me now?01:29
nikkiibazhang, yes but not currently on, i want to list ones that are even not currently on01:29
bazhangohsix, that hardly means obselete01:29
ohsixbazhang: anyways, this isn't very important, theres like 2 checkboxes that are in padevchooser that load modules that people rely on01:29
ZupI have a question..... I had webcamstudio  installed then took it off and erased all the left over files... however when I run "locate webcamstudio" files come up, but in a gui root search, there are no files... look at my screen shot.... http://imagebin.org/14463001:29
ac7ssIAMAgirl: during the boot, there is a time to press ESC. then you can access the old kernels in a menu. Shouldn't need that though. The biggest troubles I have had were with Wireless and video. Video has a failback mode that will allow you to repair.01:29
Todd200I love swap01:30
ohsixbazhang: i didn't base my judgement on whether you have to manually install it, it's long from upstream01:30
chmkpcpower, when I look in disk manager, it sees all partitions and it shows it as /dev/sda, but even in disk manager, I cannot partition unpartitioned space in it, it thinks for a while, then times out and says input/output error.01:30
Todd200What is the speed difference between wubi and native install?01:30
pcpowerchmk: maybe the drive is bad?01:30
ac7ssThanks for the [TAB] info. saves a lot of typing in IRC.01:30
nicholas_ If I get no answer, how long to wait B4 i repeat my question ? I installed Palm desktop via Wine but do not have a shortcut nor for it nor for wine...01:31
ohsixnicholas_: #winehq brah01:31
bazhangnicholas_, whats the listing in the appdb01:31
Azzy_112358So, padevchooser is installed and so is pavcontrol01:31
ac7ssnicholas_, do you have a wine entry in your program dropdown?01:31
nicholas_ac7ss, I do not01:31
guedesavHello again. I just upgrades my karmic to lucid, it wasn't bootin. Now I tried booting with "noapic nolapic" and without "quiet splash", and the "disabling IRQ" messages stopped, but it suddenly enters graphic mode and sets the splash screen(even though I told it NOT TO) and my screen is all flickering, so I can't see a damn thing. Can someone help me now? BTW, it was working fine in intrepid, jaunty and karmic.01:32
chmkpcpower, existing windows partition loads from it. That's the point, I know that something is wrong with the disk, but obviously, I can't check it with fsck, the question was how do I check it then?01:32
IAMAgirlac7ss, what is that "list of ubuntus" I see when I boot up?  (The HD is an XP dual boot.)01:32
nicholas_ac7ss, I have been trying to solve that problem for ages01:32
ac7ssnicholas_, I cannot tell you how to add that, perhaps someone else here....01:32
IAMAgirlchmk, I cant fix you but I'm interested. Are you doing this - by booting from a liveCD?01:33
ohsixnicholas_: the desktop integration stuff isn't 100%, so it can't be expected that .desktop entries show up for everything you install; you might have to run it manually01:33
sacarlsonguedesav: did you run proprietary video drivers before the upgrade?01:33
drcnicholas_: if you look in Edit Menu, is wine listed anywhere in there (maybe unchecked)?01:33
Jordan_USuparNoobie100: If you can it's easiest to boot from a CD, using this iso if you want to do a 64 bit install you'll need to use the +mac iso (which works around a bug in Apple's firmware). I know there is a version for Ubuntu but all I can find at the moment is the one for kubuntu: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/ports/releases/10.10/release/kubuntu-10.10-alternate-amd64+mac.iso01:33
ac7ssIAMAgirl, The list of ubuntus is a listing of the kernels. if the top one doesn't work, you can select the one below it. (not the safe mode one, the one below that.)01:33
Azzy_112358Well, I really need sound on my headphones, aint restricting my video editing to times when people are not around.01:34
chmkpcpower, I don't believe that in a such powerful and old OS, as linux no disk check/recovery programs.01:34
nicholas_drc, I know that there is this problem: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=107464601:34
chmkIAMAgir, yes01:34
ac7ssnicholas_, I am running the netbook edition now, so I cannot try it myself. (the menu system is different.)01:35
headsetallways been problems ati cards with ubuntu ?01:35
guedesavsacarlson: I just booted my newly installed Intrepid and upgraded it to Jaunty, then Karmic and then Lucid. For all I know, it should be at least displaying with a 648x480 resolution like the others did.01:35
nicholas_ohsix, As I was saying to drc: I came accross this http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=107464601:35
nicholas_ac7ss, thks for trying01:35
guedesavsacarlson: also, all I have is an onboard sis671 video card. I don't think that'd be a problem.01:36
coz_guedesav,  I dont think sis has a 3d acceleration driver for linux  at this time if that was what you wanted01:37
ohsixbazhang: fwiw, gnome-volume-control can do everything aside from moving streams; but its device tab does move streams as people expect01:37
guedesavcoz_: I don't use 3d acceleration, I just want a monitor that works01:37
greg__Im new to linux, how can i change owner permissions for my /home folder? I can view files but cant cut/copy/paste anything.01:37
drcnicholas_: You didn't answer my question01:37
coz_guedesav,  ah ok... is it not giving you the proper resolution?01:37
guedesavcoz_: It's not giving me nothing. The screen is flickering and I can't see a damn thing.01:38
guedesavcoz_: and this will sound bitter, but it worked all fine in 8.04. I hate upgrading my system, and that's the reason.01:38
nicholas_drc, Sorrry no its not01:38
SuparNoobie100Jordan_U: I tried that but cd drive is dead i think01:38
coz_guedesav,  yes i understand... which version are you on now?01:38
guedesavcoz_: as I said three times already, lucid.01:38
Austin_Whats the term for a Ubuntu newbie (or, Someone who only half-knows the terminal in Ubuntu, Or, GUI Windows Junkie)?01:38
fr00gCan anybody tell me if it's possible to minimize Evolution to the messaging menu?01:39
ohsixAustin_: "a normal person"01:39
IAMAgirlac7ss, thanks a lot. I've put learn a lot more about how ubuntu works on my list. Even how a driver works, on the way to learning how to write one.01:39
guedesavcoz_: my intrepid got all freaky yesterday, when I came here they told me to install lucid or a newer version. But since I don't have a CD for lucid, I had to start at intrepid and do the upgrades. Now it's not working. yay.01:39
coz_guedesav,  sorry  I didnt see that ,,, i dont know if there is a new driver in .deb format01:39
nicholas_drc I read it had to do with a delete line somewhere that had to be removed01:39
coz_guedesav, oooo  that actually may be the issue then01:39
drcnicholas_: was it <ever> in the menu (maybe installed and uninstalled earlier)?01:40
guedesavcoz_: ...really01:40
coz_guedesav,  I 'never" suggest upgrading01:40
coz_guedesav,  it can cause more issues than it solves  ... at times01:40
Austin_Yow! flooding!01:40
nicholas_drc, I was once upon a time01:40
Jordan_Uguedesav: SiS cards are the worst supported graphics cards in linux by far. If you can change cards, do.01:40
guedesavcoz_: It's onboard. I don't think I can change it.01:40
coz_very true^^01:40
Austin_@ohsix Lol, I guess maybe I am normal after all.01:40
nicholas_drc, Google says it is a known issue s for your missing menu shortcuts, look for a Wine entry in /home/<user name>/.config/menus/applications.menu. It should have a <Deleted/> on the end of it like this:01:40
FloodBot3nicholas_: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.01:40
coz_guedesav,  do you have an agp or pcie slot on the system01:41
nicholas_oops sorry01:41
drcnicholas_: I've seen this on my machine before, let me think on what I did to resolve this (it was a while ago)01:41
ac7ssIAMAgirl, Thats more ambitiious than me. I just write scripts and such.01:41
cubi_SuparNoobie100: I don't know if there's something special with Macbooks, but I had trouble installing Ubuntu on a Mac mini, until installing a separate bootloader called rEFIt01:41
Azzy_112358So, no one is able to help me with this. I have a useless mic and headphones.01:42
guedesavcoz_: I never opened this thing, but it's a laptop. Also, I'd like to use my Ubuntu in less than a week, so unless you have any idea how I can get my lucid to work in text mode so I can at least try to install the driver I have, I'll go reformat my disk and reinstall intrepid on it so I can get back to using it normally like I did.01:42
coz_guedesav,  and I think i deleted the last  sis driver in .deb package I  found01:42
IAMAgirl Azzy_112358, still here01:42
fr00gCan anybody tell me if it's possible to minimize Evolution to the messaging menu?01:42
Jordan_USuparNoobie100: I don't have enough time right now to walk through making a USB drive that's bootable on an intel mac but it is possilbe and I will likely have time tomorrow.01:42
Azzy_112358Well, this is less than a nightmare than my old PC, with a Unichrome.01:42
coz_guedesav,  ah darn,, this is going to be painful... can you back up the files you need and maybe download the  minimal install cd which is only 12 megs and burn it/01:42
drcnicholas_: The second message in the link you posted was how I solved the problem.  Make sure you back up the file or you may make your menu problem worse (experience :)01:43
Jordan_Uguedesav: Can you pastebin your /etc/X11/xorg.conf ?01:43
guedesavcoz_: I can't burn cds. My CD driver is busted. PRoblem is, I think I had this same problem whn I installed 10.04 from a CD way back ago.01:43
guedesavJordan_U: I can't access Ubuntu at all, so I think not.01:43
coz_guedesav,  ooo01:43
IAMAgirlAzzy_112358, If you dont mind someone asking stuff similar to "is it plugged in?" and going from there, tell me.01:43
sacarlsonguedesav: to get to text mode you might try <ctl><alt> f2  and to return to graphics if it worked <clt><alt> f701:43
semehey guys.. I've been trying to find out why but network-manager and wicd are both broken on 10.10... I read somthing about it being broken by some update but I can't figure out what it is... basically it shows me the wireless networks and asks me to authenticate but just keeps aasking me for my password01:43
Jordan_Uguedesav: What happens when you try to boot?01:43
guedesavsacarlson: No. The text mode is all flickery too.01:43
nicholas_drc I need step by step help on that one01:43
Azzy_112358It's okay01:43
nicholas_How do I back up the file ?01:44
Azzy_112358I've seen cases where those questions would fix the issue, you never know xD01:44
Jordan_Uguedesav: NVM, see it in scrollback.01:44
sacarlsonguedesav: then boot the older kernel at boot time01:44
Jordan_Uguedesav: Try holding shift during boot to get the grub menu and select the recovery mode entry.01:44
guedesavsacarllson: I tried, it didn't boot. I think 10.04 pretty much ruined them all.01:44
drcnicholas_: that message gives you step by step01:44
nicholas_drc How do I back up?01:44
Jordan_Uguedesav: If you can get to a shell that way try "mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-bak" then reboot.01:45
guedesavBTW, I just remembered the first time I installed Ubuntu here in this machine I had to do this "noapic nolapic" thing too. I'm pretty sure it was lucid now, that's why I settled with intrepid in the first place...01:45
greg__Im new to linux, how can i change owner permissions for my /home folder? I can view files but cant cut/copy/paste anything.01:45
drcnicholas_: copy the file under a different name, like <filename.old> or whatever you want01:45
jribgreg__: what do you want to cut/copy/paste and why?01:45
sacarlsonguedesav: I don't know how an install could mess up an older kernel text mode,  you sure you tried <ctl><alt> f2 ?01:45
nicholas_drc iIt says to delete the <delete> but my menu is different01:45
guedesavJordan_U: if you scrollback you might find out that I already said even the text mode is flickery.01:45
sl33k_How do i find where is my eclipse/dropins directory?01:46
guedesavsacarlson: yes. I tried ctrl alt F1 to F12. All flickering.01:46
ac7ssgreg__, do you mean your /home or /home/USERNAME ?01:46

guedesavsacarlson: yes, it is there. Your point?01:48

drcnicholas_: the menu <file>, the one that message said to edit01:48

ac7ssgreg__, what is the target folder?01:48
sacarlsonguedesav: well I can only asume you tried text mode in each01:48
coz_sl33k_,  not sure but you can try to open your home directory  then hit ctrl+h  to show hidden files and look to see if there is a  .eclipse folder01:48
greg__Please change to another color as i cant see your name when in yellow01:48
nicholas_drc One sec I have several lemme paste them01:48
Azzy_112358I was still hoping someone had an idea on why my sound stuff is limited to my builtin speakers...01:48
guedesavJordan_U: by tomorrow I'd like to get this solved once and for all, so if I don't get any progress here I'm going back to 8.04, support or no support.01:48
Austin_18 MB Ram *lol* 1.43 GB HDD *lol* some old processor that takes a while to work,01:49
ac7ssgreg__, I am not making the color change. it is on your client.01:49
bazhangAustin_, then no01:49
pssalmansacarlson: did you see my last msg01:49
guedesavsacarlson: yep. IF you want I can try them all again with "noapic nolapic", since I'm not sure I did that01:49
Austin_lol, I know.01:49
coz_greg__,   what size hard drive do you have on that system?01:49
bazhangAustin_, so why ask01:49
guedesavsorry, I meant 8.1001:49
Austin_small talk, really.01:49
greg__ac7ss, just another folder in my /home folder. IE move a file from say documents to letters01:49
bazhangAustin_, this is support; chit chat in #ubuntu-offtopic please01:49
Jordan_Uguedesav: 8.04 is still (just barely) supported since it's an LTS release.01:50
sacarlsonpssalman: no I looked back two pages and see nothing01:50
ac7ssgreg__, /home is not your home, it is where user home directorys are located. Your home directory would be /home/greg__/01:50
nicholas_drc, Here is my screen shot http://imagebin.org/144634     what should i open and edit ?01:50
guedesavJordan_U: yea, but I don't think a lot of the software I used will work with the old versions of the packages.01:50
mdgnice screen shot01:50
guedesavWell, I'm going to try booting all the kernels again. Maybe they've decided to work all of a sudden.01:51
Jordan_Uguedesav: There's likely many more backported packages for 8.04 than 8.10.01:51
Austin_Oh. right.01:51
pssalmansacarlson: this is the ifconfig when disconnected from internet...01:51

Austin_@chmk what do you mean, recover?01:55
puffI'm on ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS, running firefox 3.6.5.  I installed firefox 4.0 from the PPA.  I'm pretty happy  with it, but reluctant to uninstall 3.6.5 just yet.  However, various  apps (gnome terminal, empathy) still start up firefox 3.6.5  when I click on a URL.  How do I change this?01:56
pssalmansacarlson: thanks... and for the file u asked me about it only returned my dns and they were google public dns since i configured my router to use them01:56
sacarlsonchmk: you can recover files from a broken hddisk, I would have to search for the tools01:56

francesc1nikkii: that mean s u have 32 bit02:12
edbianlanclin, The drive is probably going into powersave mode when it's not being used.  This usually forces the drive to be unmounted.  If you create an entry in fstab for it it should automount for you.02:12

lanclinHow do i find out the device name02:15
nicholas_sacarlson, I must say I am a lot less paranois about updating than on windows02:16
nicholas_sacarlson, BTW do I need an antivrus ? A firewall ?02:16
lanclinwhen I type df -h, it is not picking up like /sdb1 or something02:16
mmiller235is there ANY way to get unity to work in virtual box?02:16

lanclindev/sdb1 on /media/Lance type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks,uid=1000,gid=1000,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,flush)02:17
lanclinthis is the output02:17
nicholas_sacarlson, And my question about antivirus and firewall?02:17
edbianmmiller235, Just install unity?02:17
mmiller235edbian, no because unity refuses to run02:18
mmiller235edbian it keeps throwing up errors and then crashing02:18
sacarlsonnicholas_: don't need them,  firewall is only needed if you have other nodes in you network that you want to have access to differnet things02:18
francesc1lanclin: the device is sdb102:18
edbianmmiller235, mmm, I've never tried something like that.  I'm afraid I can't offer any help!02:18
nicholas_sacarlson, Merci02:18
sacarlsonnicholas_: and virus in linux I have never seen one02:18
francesc1lanclin: did u want to add that drive to the fstab?02:18
lanclinYes ..02:19
mmiller235yup, I log in, unity tries to start up, an then crashes02:19
edbianfrancesc1, His issue is that the drive keeps randomly unmounting.  I told him to put it in fstab so that it remounts automatically02:19
sacarlsonnicholas_: instead of a firewall just close the open services on your system you don't want,  see sudo netstat -pant to see what port you listen to and close what you don't need02:19
francesc1edbian: ooo okay .. didnt see that part... that is weird that it just unmounts ... but wouldnt a mount -a solve it02:20
=== Guest59984 is now known as ok_wait
edbianfrancesc1, mount -a will say 'no such device in fstab' for the external.02:20
edbianfrancesc1, I think the external hdd is going into powersave mode and therefore is unmounting02:21
drcnicholas_: do you have a ppa for plaxx in your package manager?02:21
ac7ssnicholas_, I update all the time. (Security usually. but sticking with the LTS on the server.) Only here to help.02:21

ubottuchaorain, please see my private message02:59
meowsussoreau, I guess i since i've been using Ubuntu solely for the last 3 years, i've noticed that the spell checking support is more lacking than in MS Windows. I was wondering if it was a dictionary issue and if i could just update ubuntu to use a better, more univeral spell checking dictionary02:59
meowsuscase-in-point "univeral"02:59
sacarlsonaroman: if your not experienced with compiling I think gtk+ isn't a good place to start02:59
soreaumeowsus: For me, aspell checking in xchat is at least superior.. which app are you reviewing?02:59
Joe___sorry. ive never used linux before...could you step me through the process02:59
meowsussoreau, Hahaha, actually, i just realized that as i was trying to come up with examples.03:00
ac7ssJoe___, do you have a terminal window on the screen?03:00
meowsusI guess in chrome and firefox mostly is where i see the most problems03:00
soreauJoe___: First, see if you can move windows with Alt+Drag or if a dialog box pops up when you do Alt+F203:00
aromansacarlson: gotta learn somewhere. But gtk+ compiles fine, i accidentally compiled as root, which is why I'm here03:00
aromanhad to pass the no introspection flag first, though03:00
sacarlsonaroman: true start somewhere you must but many apps depend on gtk+ so if you break that you break many things,03:01
aromansacarlson: well that's kind of why I'm installing it03:01
aromani'm writing an app in gtk3 :)03:01
soreauaroman: General rule of thumb: you should be able to compile anything as user (provided the user owns the src dir) but should use root when installing (to a perfix the user doesnt own, like standard /usr )03:01
meowsusSo i guess my question would be is there a way to make aspell the universal spell checking application for my system? Or tell specific programs to say "to hell with this spellcheck dictionary, I want 'aspell!'"03:02
sacarlsonaroman: can't you use the repository for gtk3?03:02
aromanyeah that much I've got03:02
Joe___yeah. everything is running in the background. i can get a terminal window open.03:02
aromansacarlson: I could for this project, but there is another program that I'd like to run that depends on the latest gtk303:02
sacarlsonaroman: oh you not compiling the lib but you app that links to gtk+03:02
aromansacarlson: I'm wanting to compile against the gtk3 devel headers, yes.03:02
soreausacarlson: That's what I gathered ;)03:02

ubuntumy Ubuntu 10.10 was working perfectly. I had grub2 and everything with single OS so I decided to add xp for the dual boot because I needed some software but after I installed Xp it automatically goes to boot xp without even asking me if I want ubuntu. Basically Xp partition became a boot partition. I logged from live cd and changed boot partition back to the ubuntu partition with Gparted and when I restarted it hanged at blinking "_" doing nothing. I need h03:07

Aginordraven_sol: it depends on the issue, dmesg should be able to tell you more03:20
alphurJoe___, xubuntu would be better03:20
smwJoe___, in order of mem usage (ascending) xubuntu, ubuntu, kubuntu03:21
alphurStepNjump, don't know, but you can build android yourself at google's website whatever03:21
AginorDocfxit: what exactly do you mean by your question?03:21
synderhow do i know if i have libcurl libraries installed or not?03:21
synderwhere are they located?03:21
dinJoe___: jeos :)03:21
StepNjumpok thanks alphur03:21
jamie4Joe___, it's not *buntu anymore, but #! might be worth a real shot03:21
AginorDocfxit: and yes, it might be a problem depending on how you partitioned the system03:21
shentinosorry, just aggravated about the spam.03:21
alphurStepNjump, good luck :)03:21
shentinocarry on and I'm sorry for swearing03:21
jamie4LXDE*buntu easier than Xubuntu (on mem)?03:22
bazhangjamie4, much03:22
smwjamesgecko, correct03:22
bazhangjamie4, its open box and lxde03:22
draven_solAginor, mostly all i_mode failures and i/o errors03:22
mmiller235rww why did you only use a name ban?03:22
jamie4bazhang, I meant for Joe___ 's PIII03:22
rwwmmiller235: because I'm crafty.03:22
bazhangjamie4, yep03:22
mmiller235oh ok03:23
jamie4bazhang, Lubuntu > #! ?03:23
bazhangjamie4, crunchbang? no idea, try #crunchbang03:23
Aginordraven_sol: read/write failure kind of thing?03:23
Joe___hey so what do you mean by "but #! might be worth a real shot"03:23
DocfxitAginor My / has run out of room. It's 100% full. If you want I can post a clip of the entire drive.03:23
Aginordraven_sol: and timetouts?03:23
StepNjumpthanks alphur03:23
draven_solAginor, yes03:23
ac7ssDocfxit, have you cleaned out the apt cache?03:24
AginorDocfxit: that's probable a problem, yes, check the size of /var/log and see if you have some giant files there03:24
jamie4bazhang, it's just openbox - it's probably lighter than xfce or lxde, just not a *buntu anymore03:24
Aginordraven_sol: it is most likely broken, yes03:24
najibhi, how can i disable /var/run mount as tmpfs (shm)?03:24
najibnone         tmpfs    746M  332K  746M   1% /var/run03:24
bazhangjamie4, I am aware of that, you can get even more minimal with lubuntu03:24
draven_solAginor, thanks for all the info.03:24
Aginordraven_sol: without seeing the info it's hard to tell though03:25
Aginordraven_sol: it might be worth rebooting the machine and have a look at the drive with smartctl03:25
jamie4Joe___ I mean (crunchbang linux, i.e. #! see #crunchbang perhaps) is lighter than xubuntu, bazhang says lubuntu can be lighter, but #! comes very very light already - openbox on debian (used to be on ubuntu)03:25
DocfxitAginor I have one file I know of that is 14 Mwa ha ha ha ha ha...... I'd like to copy it off the system and delete it.03:26
lashaI reinstalled grub03:26
dinJoe___: jeos + openbox03:26
lashabut when I open Gparted the boot flag is still on Xp partition03:26
DocfxitAginor I have no idea where that mess came from.03:26
lashalast time I changed boot flag manually it didnt work03:26
jfanggrub 2?03:26
lashaI have it but not on that partition03:27
Guest65399soreau: I received this after completed the help:  WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release.03:27

delinquentmefiltering the OPEN files from LSOF  by ONLY network connections to my computer ...  ? how do i do this ?03:27
soreauGuest65399: It's a warning, not an error03:27
draven_solAginor, eh that drives been giving me too many issues, it's at about that time to toss it so i already have scrapped it.03:27
nessusdo not click on that link from timecop1203:28
nit-witlasha, do you want to boot xp03:28
Aginordraven_sol: fair enough03:28
ac7ssDocfxit, sudo apt-get clean03:28
Guest65399ok, so everything is fine then? i followed the help to the letter.  I just started using Ubuntu yesterday03:28
lashanit-wit I can boot xp because it was a default boot partition03:28
lashanit-wit my problem was that i cant dual boot03:29
ac7ssDocfxit, this may be enough to give you some wiggle room. that and purging old log files.03:29
soreauresearchewr123: It looks fine to me. Are you sure that's from the hard drive and not from the live system?03:29
AginorDocfxit: unless you have a tiny, tiny, partition, that's not too bad. and it's probably just one of the system logs03:29
nit-witlasha, so what is the problem it is not clear03:29
lashanit-wit basically it overided the grub2 of ubuntu03:29
researchewr123soreau: how do I confirm where it is from?03:29
WRAzheya, how do I change the theme of empathy messages?03:29
nit-witlasha, you tried to reload grub2 and it didn't work?03:29
researchewr123soreau: im not very expert I work as adviced by supportes here03:29
jfanglasha, you need to run update command in grub203:30
lashaI didn't restart, afraid to see blank screen again03:30
jfanglet it automatically refush you MBR03:30
lashai ll reboot03:30
lashai ll be back03:30
geegeegeewhat chmod do i do to stop people using ls in my home directory?03:30
Docfxitac7ss Thank you. It didn't give me any room.03:30
ac7sswhat does 'df -h' show for space?03:31
researchewr123soreau: Im trying from different folder perhaps right one http://paste.ubuntu.com/584606/03:31

vhdlhi, can I ask a question?03:32
bazhangvhdl, you did03:32
ac7ssDocfxit, what is the big file in red on lower right?03:33
lashanit-wit I am back grub worked but only ubuntu appeared :S03:33
nit-witlasha, run sudo update-grub in the ubuntu03:33
lashahow do i include xp partition now ?03:33
lashanit-wit ok sek03:34
r0fs3ck5lasha: have you deleted your other bootloader by any chance?03:34
=== jarvis_ is now known as dougpiston
nit-witlasha, xp has to have the bootflag03:34
ac7ssDocfxit, you need to migrate some of those files in /media that is too small of a drive. (I have thumb drives larger than that.)03:34
lashanit-wit thank you man you are my hero, it wrote that it detected xp !03:34
Docfxitac7ss I will run it again to see if it will tell me.03:34
lashanit-wit thank you so much my 4 hours of horror just ended03:34
nit-witlasha, others helped we all do it .03:35
soreauresearchewr123: Still looks ok, not sure what is going wrong03:35
lashaok thank you guys very much :)03:35
researchewr123soreau: how do I reach the folder from which u want me to paste log03:35
AginorDocfxit: look into /media, that seems to be your space hogger, are you sure that it only contains mounted devices?03:35
soreauresearchewr123: You have to mount the root file system from the ubuntu install o the hard drive03:36
researchewr123soreau: how to do that03:36
soreau! mount | researchewr12303:36
ubotturesearchewr123: mount is used to attach devices to directories. See also https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount03:36
researchewr123soreau: ok.im trying03:37
Docfxitac7ss Media is not being used. It's a dual boot. That partition is Windows XP03:37
ratiusHey guys do you have made the flash player "square" work in Lucid 10.04 with firefox 4 on a 64 bits system? It does not seem to work for me and the flash plugin for 32 bit is very glitchy for me to the point of unusability.03:37
rebirthhow do i set a script to run at shut down time?03:38
researchewr123soreau: when I typed the mount command in terminal I got this http://paste.ubuntu.com/584607/03:39
ac7ssDocfxit, according to what you posted, /media is the biggest user.03:40
DocfxitAginor It looks like Media only contains mounted devices. I don't see any of Ubuntu there.03:40
ac7ssDocfxit, what does df report? (post to pastbin.)03:40
imperfect-Anyone know if there is a syslog-ng-3 package/repo for 8.04 LTS03:40

glitchdhow would i make a shortcut on my top panel to launch a java application??03:53

bfreisHi, I'm having an issue with my internet connection in Ubuntu. It is *very* slow. When I boot to Windows on exactly the same machine, internet is very fast.03:57
bfreisFor example, time host www.google.com shows me almost 2 seconds!03:57
policyqanyone know why 'apt-get search --installed' doesn't search only installed packages? how do you do that03:57
policyqapt-cache i mean03:57
htatbfreis, I had a similar problem, then I changed to google's public DNS, and it was fixed.03:57
vhdlhi, can I ask a question?03:57
superbobis there a way to resize the root partition while logged in?03:57
bfreishtat, I'm already using google's public dns03:57
bfreishtat I've already tried other dns servers, it is always the same thing!03:58
=== nicholas_ is now known as t-boxmy
=== t-boxmy is now known as tboxmy
superbobi made it too small on a netbook, and the nb doesn't have a cd drive03:58
ac7sspolicyq, Perhaps the cache has been cleared?03:58
superboband i have no other way to run a boot disk or anything.03:58
policyqso how to rebuild it03:58
superbobno external cd drives03:58
htatbfreis, are you sure it isn't looking for IPv6 first? That is the other possible problem03:58
raidopolicyq: that is not what that command does, see dpkg03:58
bfreishtat, I've seen suggestions to disable IPv6, I've tried that as well, but the connection is still slow03:58
ActionParsnipsuperbob: as long as the partition is unmounted you can resize, obviously the system partition needs to be mounted to be used, so no. use a live cd / usb03:58
bfreishtat, currently, IPv6 is disabled03:59
policyqwhen i do a search, it shows all packages. i read the man page, and apt-cache doesn't give any error using --installed with search so i thought it should work03:59
tboxmyis the app in JAR file?03:59
ActionParsnipglitchd: do you simply double click the jar file?03:59
Aginorbfreis: have you looked at the mtu?03:59
Aginormight be that it's too high in linux and lower in windows03:59
ac7sssuperbob, resize2fs can do it.03:59
superbobActionParsnip:  that's what I'm saying... i have no cd drive and no usb stick... is there anything else i can do?03:59
bfreisAginor, no, do you have any links explaining what should I try?04:00
superbobac7ss: is it risky?04:00
BAIXADASANTISTA<ubottu>: Ta ai parceiro04:00
glitchdActionParsnip, i just figured it out, i wasnt putting the correct slash before the space.04:00
ActionParsnipsuperbob: netboot to a pxe server on your lan, grab an SD card, ANYTHING will do04:00
glitchdActionParsnip, thx anyways man, i appreciate the intended help04:00
ActionParsnipglitchd: smooth :)04:00
glitchdActionParsnip, adios bud04:00
ActionParsnipglitchd: you got the gold, that's all we need04:00
BAIXADASANTISTAubottu: Ta ai ???04:00
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)04:00
ac7sssuperbob, Yes, always. backup data first. (use a live usb helps as well.)04:00
glitchdActionParsnip, indeed thx again=)04:00
superbobActionParsnip:  where would I go to install a gparted boot disk on an SD card?04:01
ac7sssuperbob, I have not lost data doing a resize yet. YMMV04:01
WRAzhow do I change the empathy IM theme?04:01
Aginorbfreis: I only have about 10 minutes until I need to leave, not sure I will have time to help you, it might also not be the issue04:02
raidopolicyq: you interpreted the man page incorrectly, try "dpkg --get-selections"04:02
bfreisAginor, ok04:02
vhdlcan I run ubuntu on a nokia flip phone?04:02
superbobac7ss:   cool.  I'll use that as a last option if I can't get the SD card thing to work......04:02
bfreisAginor, I've found something on MTU, I will try that04:02
superbob(thanks guys)04:02
Aginorbfreis: how do know what your problem is?04:02
Aginorbfreis: by pinging?04:02
Aginorbfreis: because if that's how you find out, mtu wont change it04:03
bfreisAginor, I don't know what the problem is, I just know the symptom: internet is very slow, and time host www.google.com takes forever (almost 2 seconds!)04:03
ac7sssuperbob, Backing up is ALWAYS a good idea when messing with the partitions.04:03
bfreisAginor, I've tried disabling IPv6 (it is currently disabled), but the it is still slow04:03
superbobac7ss: agreed...  if i had a way to do it!!04:03
Aginorbfreis: so it's only while doing dns lookups?04:03
bfreisAginor, it looks like that04:04
Aginorbfreis: or what's your latency when you actually ping google.com?04:04
bfreisAginor, latency is good (around 10ms)04:04
bfreisAginor, download speed is good as well (from the Ubuntu mirrors closest to my home, I download at about 2MB/p (with a 20Mbps connection))04:04
ac7sssuperbob, tarball it and place on a i-net host if all else fails. (a few around for temp storage.)04:04
Aginorbfreis: so, does /etc/resolv.conf look like what you expect it to?04:04
superbobgood idea.  thx04:05
bfreisAginor, yes, it lists nameserver, google's public dns04:05
superbobActionParsnip:   I'm looking for a way to install gparted to SD, not seeing anything (googling, etc)04:05
Aginorbfreis: and that's what you use in windows as well?04:05
bfreisAginor, yes, exactly the same04:06
ac7sssuperbob, should work like any usb drive.04:06
Aginorbfreis: and why don't you use one of your ISP's DNS servers?04:06
brophathow can i find out if ia32-libs is installed?04:06
superbobac7ss: so this should work?  http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2833298/how_to_install_gparted_on_a_usb_flash.html04:06
Aginorbfreis: and pinging that ip is fine? - and you only have one server configured?04:06
bfreisAginor, I've got configured as well (google's secondary public dns)04:07
ac7sssuperbob, it should work. the netbook sees it as a usb I believe.04:07
bfreisAginor, pinging gives me 10ms04:07
superbobgotcha.  cool, thanks ac7ss04:07
Aginorbfreis: does "host -v www.google.com" give you anything interesting?04:08
Aginorbfreis: and how do you connect to the Internet?04:08
raidobrophat: You can look it up in synaptic or at the terminal do$dpkg --get-selections | grep ia32-libs04:08
ActionParsnipsuperbob: there is a gparted live cd with just gparted and you can use unetbootin to make the bootable SD. If you still have your Ubuntu ISO then you can use that too04:09
c001what is a ubi installer04:09
ActionParsnipc001: do you mean wubi?04:09
bfreisAginor, it looks alright04:09
brophatraido it said do: command not found04:10
vhdlhi, can I ask a question?04:10
raidobrophat: do everything after $04:10
bazhangvhdl, a real question, sure04:10
raidobrophat: dont include do$04:10
brophatoh ok bwshhahaha04:11
brophatraido it returned  "ia32-libs                                     install"04:11
brophatdoes that mean it is installed? or does it mean i have yet to install it04:12
raidobrophat: then you have it04:12
Aginorbfreis: how long did it take according to the last line? :D04:12
raidobrophat: You could also do "apt-get install ia32-libs" and it will tell you you already have it04:12
ActionParsnipraido: that'll need sudo ;)04:13
brophatraido i will try that04:13
bfreisAginor, actually, quite fast right now, strange04:13
raidobrophat: see^^^ what ActionParsnip said04:13
superbobok.... dumb question....  i'm sleepy, or i'd remember how to do this:  how can I check which /dev/XXXX is the one for the SD card04:13
superbobobviously it's not sda1 :D04:13
bfreisAginor, maybe it has been cached?04:14
superbobmight it be /dev/mmcblck0p1?04:14
bfreisAginor, I've tried another host, that I've never tried before04:14
bfreisAginor, it took very long04:14
ac7sssuperbob, that could be it.04:14
bfreisAginor, almost 2 seconds again04:14
ac7sstry a 'df' and see if it is the right size.04:15
superbobthere we go!  thanks ac7ss04:15
brophatraido that apt-get said it said "ia32-libs is already the newest version" whatever that means04:16
brophatis that ubuntu's way of saying already there?04:16
ActionParsnipbrophat: i don't think it can be made any clearer really...04:16
ac7ssDocfxit, how is it going?04:16
rwwbrophat: yes04:16
raidobrophat: yep your good to go04:16
Aginorsorry bfreis, my time is up04:16
Aginorbfreis: I'll be back later though04:16
bfreisAginor, ok, thanks for your help!04:16
vhdlcan I run ubuntu on a nokia flip phone?04:16
Aginorbfreis: but try a different dns server04:16
bfreisAginor, ok04:16
bazhangvhdl, no04:17
bfreisAginor, well, I will leave soon. It's late here, 1AM04:17
bfreisAginor, thanks again04:17

mylistoI'm wondering if there is any kind of screen scraping (data mining) application for Ubuntu04:26
ActionParsnipWRAz: it will install the development release (currently natty)04:26
WRAzcool, so I have an install I just muck around on it I can install natty that way04:27
thauriswulfaAvetec: you can also use the package you downloaded , just  go to terminal and run firefox from there04:27

speedrunnerG55can i replace the backlight of a laptop screen seperatley04:36
ohsixspeedrunnerG55:  yes04:36
ActionParsnipAvetec: i suggest you upgrade to at least Lucid, Karmic (9.10) is EOL next month too. Your release is no longer supported04:37
ohsixspeedrunnerG55: they're removable, for recycling and replacement04:37
ac7ssspeedrunnerG55, Yes, a lot of work. finding the part is difficult.04:37
speedrunnerG55ok, where can i buy them04:37
speedrunnerG55i know its the problem04:37
bazhangspeedrunnerG55, try ##hardware04:37
ac7ssspeedrunnerG55, depends on the model and type.04:37
bazhangspeedrunnerG55, this is ubuntu support only04:37
speedrunnerG55i dont feel like buying the whole lcd, or is that a better idea04:37
ActionParsnipspeedrunnerG55: ask in ##hardware04:38
ac7ssspeedrunnerG55, instructables has a tutorial for that.04:38
ohsixbut yea, this isn't really ubuntu related04:38
AvetecActionParsnip: can i upgrade using live cd?04:38
rwwAvetec: no04:38
ActionParsnipAvetec: you can upgrade with the alternate cd, not the livecd04:38
speedrunnerG55i dont like ##hardware they never stay ontopic and everyone ignores me and talks about the goverment videogames ant the economy04:38
bazhangAvetec, no, using alternate cd04:38
ActionParsnipspeedrunnerG55: this is ubuntu support only04:38
bazhangspeedrunnerG55, no matter, this is not the place04:38
rwwspeedrunnerG55: so your solution to a channel being offtopic is to be offtopic in another channel?04:39

c001i want it to default to linux not windows04:51
c001or blow windows away and just boot off linux.04:51
Starminnmocha0range: I believe it's just << sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade >> ("update" brings everything to get the most recent versions, "upgrade" upgrades everything to that newest version.)04:52
ActionParsnipmocha0range: only way I know it can be done is to edit /etc/apt/sources.list and comment out all but the security lines04:52
ohsixmocha0range: just make sure your sources include *-security, and none of the -proposed or -backports ones04:52
ruanc001: to just boot off linux you'll need to do a proper install04:52
ohsixmocha0range: look at /etc/apt/sources.list04:52
ruanc001: since wubi install depends on windows04:52
ubottuWubi is an Ubuntu installer for Windows users that allows you to install and uninstall Ubuntu like a Windows application, in a simple and safe way. http://wubi-installer.org/support.php and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide for troubleshooting.

Starminnmocha0range: Ah. Disregard my statement. I thought you were speaking of something slightly different04:52
DaPenguinc001, you'll need to migrate wubi to it's own partition for that and set up grub as the default bootloader04:52

DaPenguinc001, there's a way to edit the windows bootloader from windows itself, just can't remember it off the top of my head05:01
DaPenguinc001, i'd just say make ubuntu the default option with a short timeout05:02
J11can i mount a disk in portable ubuntu and get it unmounted in windows?05:02
Blue1portable ubuntu?05:03
c001DaPenguin: i don't see that option in the ubuntu installer before it loads05:04
J11Blue1: yes the sf project which alows you to run ubuntu on windows using colinux05:04
DaPenguinc001, you're using wubi right? or am I getting my channels crossed?05:04
ruanJ11: windows doesnt deal with linux device names05:04
Blue1J11: new one on me.05:04
Saturn2888if I wanna setup a RAID with md0p1 and md0p2 using gpt, would I also have to setup a partition table on top of it using the md device? is that a good idea at all?05:05
Blue1J11: do you mean....wubi by chance?05:05
raidoSaturn2888: You want to raid 2 partitions on the same physical disk?05:06
J11Blue1: no i don't think it's the same: http://sourceforge.net/projects/portableubuntu/05:06
RoganAlrighty guys. Tricky question, possibly a bug, most likely my own fault. I installed xubuntu-desktop via the package manager and switched to that session (coming from normal ubuntu, v10.10)... When in there, I was suddenly booted to the login screen again - Now whenever I try open an xubuntu or xfce session it loads for a bit, flashes the terminal for half a second (too short to read anything) and kicks me back to the login screen05:06
RoganAny suggestions?05:06
c001yes wubi05:07
Saturn2888raido: naw05:07
Blue1J11: wow.  I must be behind the times.  I had no idea this even existed.05:07
c001DaPenguin: there is no option when you are installing it to default to linux before it loads the windows or linux menu05:07
c001none that i know of05:07
Saturn2888I wanna take two physical disks and raid one large partition on each so I end up with something I can create a /dev/md from05:07
Blue1J11: so kinda like wine, but in reverse?  iow run linux apps under windows?05:08
raidoSaturn2888: Yeah thats normal05:08
DaPenguinc001, it's not done from the installer. you have to run the install, edit the bootloader before reboot from a windows app, then reboot05:08
DaPenguinc001, think that should accomplish what you're after05:09
J11Blue1: yes you get individual apps, although you get the ubuntu gnome'menu'bar at the top and the windows one on the bottom05:09
brophati have a .deb driver file, what do i do to install it?05:10
ubottudeb is the Debian package format, also used by Ubuntu. To install .deb files, simply double-click (in Ubuntu) or click (in Kubuntu) on them to start the GDebi utility.05:10
brophatubottu how about from terminal?05:11
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)05:11
rww brophat sudo dpkg -i package.deb05:11
Blue1J11: I'll have to play with that.  but usually if the device isn't mounted first in the host os, you can't mount it in the guest os.  so to answer your question - my experience with vbox anyway, is if you unmount it in the host os, it gets unmounted in the guest os.05:11
brophatok thaks05:11
raidoSaturn2888: You threw me on md0p1 and md0p2, those would be the same disk, More likely it would be like md0p2 and md1p205:12
Saturn2888oh oik05:12
jrmcmIm trying to mount and use a usb drive in a vbox, it shows on the host, but not in the vbox05:13
J11well don't really need it mounted yet, as i need to copy linux partions from one disk to another usb disk and possibly i have to shrink it first or enlarge it later05:13

_antantI'm having a massive fail with my nvidia card. It just sits on a purple screen when i try and boot05:14
raidoRogan: Sounds like a problem with the Xserver. Did you install any new video drivers?05:14
_antantif I delete my xorg.conf then I can at least boot in, but if I try and get a decent resolution no luck05:14
_antantIt's a fresh install05:14
Saturn2888raido: nope, I'm not using different md devices. Either way, I have a question. I accidentally put two drives together in an md which shouldn't have gone together and already had data. How do I delete the md I created by accident?05:14
ohsixRogan: login on a terminal and check the permissions of ~/.ICEauthority05:14
J11Blue1: maybe i just have to mess around in the portable_ubuntu.conf05:15
DaPenguin_antant, might want to try the restricted driver for it05:15
_antantI am05:15
raidoSaturn2888: Id have to read the man page myslef, I dont often user the linux raid tools05:16
brophatare there any wirless printers that works with 64 bit ubuntu?05:16
_antantI'm living in one huge steaming pile of fail05:16

Starminnphysically_fit: ^^05:24
yinee_hi, is there any chinese?05:24
raidoRogan: You can make a new user, then login as that new user and see if the WM is ok05:24
RoganWould trying to log into it as root work just aswell? I'm cool with a new user if not05:25
physically_fitStarminn, thanks. that site says that is up. it must be my DNS.05:25

amh345is there a way to configure FTP (commandline) to connect to a server and upload files everynight using a cron or sometihng?05:27

jrmcmLinuxpwns: ok i have the guest additions, what now?05:29
Linuxpwnstry to install the USB device through settings on virtualbox itself...05:30
ac7ssamh345, I use a mount and then r-sync.05:30
amh345Linuxpwns: can i also execute commandline script in this ftp txt file?05:30
ActionParsnipamh345: you can write a script (ftp can be scripted too)05:30
Linuxpwnsamh345: I wouldn't see why not its a bash script05:30
ActionParsnipamh345: or mount the ftp then rsync as ac7ss says05:30
amh345what i need to do is 1)run a script to dump contents to a txt file, encrypt the txt file (gpg) and then upload it.  im trying to put the pieces together. i've  never done this before.05:31
Linuxpwnswell in that case its macro..but you can use bash I suppose... i wouldn't see why not05:31
rogan_Bingo, easy as that. Now where do xfce files live for this copying? :)05:32
Linuxpwnsamh345: Here's a very rudimentary way of automating the ftp process http://willcode4beer.com/tips.jsp?set=bashftp It all depends on which ftp software you use I guess.05:32
DaPenguinamh345, http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/, good bash scripting reference05:32
ActionParsnipamh345: have the ftp permanently mounted at boot using fstab05:32
ac7ssamh345, if it is a single file, use mput05:33
LinuxpwnsActionParsnip: Only disadvantage is your password will appear in clear text. Can you encrypt the file and still run in stealth?05:33
kalingacan someone please help me to make my nvidia graphics card to work on Ubuntu10.1005:33

ljsoftnetTheBuntu i think ext405:39
ActionParsnipuser1_: sure, if the client is windows and you are using x forwarding then you will need to run xming05:39
StarminnkalingaL Gives you something to read until somebody who can actually help comes along.05:39
ljsoftnetTheBuntu i never tried the others05:39

kalingathanks  ubottu and Starminn..05:40
r0fs3ck5I have achieved very high speeds with ext405:40
ActionParsnipuser1_: then you can use rdesktop to connect to the desktop and use it thinly05:41
rogan_cp /home/test/* /home/rogan/* going to do the trick?05:41
rogan_Don't care about rogan's stoed home data05:41
r0fs3ck5Just out of interest, has anyone else got really high write speeds with ext4 by manually matching the physical and logical blocks on your hdd?05:41
ActionParsnipuser1_: obviously if you only have  single license then it will lock the local desktop05:41
user1_ActionParsnip : ok but it won't be a network boot setup then?05:42
raidorogan_: yeah, youll have to use sudo for that though and then do chown -R rogan:rogan /home/rogan05:42
physically_fiti still can't connect to twitter.com and i fixed my DNS. is it up for anyone of you?05:42
Linuxpwnsphysically_fit: It is fine on my end.05:43
ActionParsnipuser1_: it can be if you run a pxe server on the windows side05:43
raidorogan_: and you have to use -r with cp as well to copy recursively05:43
superbobhow does one get into screen to choose what distro to load usually?05:43

ActionParsnipsparky44: the repo you added to install skype...you have it twice on your system, you need to remove one06:16
Jordan_Usuperbob: What you're going to want to do is 1: copy the iso (the file itself, no extracting) to the SD card, any fileystem will work for the SD card 2: create a /boot/grub/grub.cfg on the SD card following this template: http://www.supergrubdisk.org/wiki/Loopback.cfg 3: sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mountpoint/ /dev/sdX06:16

Jordan_Usuperbob: No, that's just explaining the template that you need to use as the contents for /boot/grub/grub.cfg. /boot/grub/loopback.cfg is a file inside the iso. (I need to make those instructions a bit clearer).06:36

cad3fyare you kidding me? i need to login as root but can't remember the password, or if i even set a root pass.06:40
Jordan_Usuperbob: :)06:40
ac7sscad3fy, you use your login password. you can change that.06:40
icerootcad3fy: and we can help to fix systems if someone is doing silly things a root, so ots not supported here06:40
ActionParsnipcad3fy: you don't just use sudo06:41
LinuxpwnsKaren_b:  Full Tilt Poker is working perfectly fine for me under POL installation. Did you have font issues with the game itself?06:41
tsimpsoncad3fy: you don't need to login as root06:41
cad3fyno no, i'm trying to use sudo and it asks for the pass for root, i cant remember it, or not sure if i even set it06:41
ActionParsnipcad3fy: if you need a user pass reset, reboot and hold shift, select recovery mode then select root and you can run: passwd username06:41
cad3fyahh thanks06:41
tsimpsoncad3fy: sudo asks for _your_ password06:41
icerootcad3fy: sudo is asking for your user-password, not for root password06:41
ActionParsnipcad3fy: you don't need root06:41
cad3fyoh right06:41

icerootcad3fy: sudo airdriver-ng06:42
Jordan_Usuperbob: Correct.06:43
cad3fyso if i ever need to use root, i will put sudo before the command?06:43
iceroot!sudo | cad3fy06:43
ubottucad3fy: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo06:43

JohnTeddyHow can I have a command be executed once I am connected to the Internet. Meaning once I connect to wireless or wired, I want a command to be executed. I'm in Shanghai for a few months.. and various sites are blocked. So I just ssh tunnel to a server in California.. ssh -fND 1080 me@myserver.com; then I just use localhost:1080 on my browser/pidgin for a socks proxy. I don't want to type this ssh command everytime I start my computer though, I want it to07:08
JohnTeddyI'm not sure what the char limit is on this ircd, tell me if that was truncated.07:08

JohnTeddyshatly: Is that your way of telling me it was truncated?07:09
shatlyit eneded with i want it to07:09
JohnTeddyI want it to be executed as sooon as I am connected to the network.07:09
JohnTeddyI want the condition of the command to be dependent on a successful connection to the Internet.07:10
shatlyyou can add it to the startup script07:10
shatlyon that hummm07:10
JohnTeddyright, but if I execute the command before I'm on the wireless, it will fail.07:10
JohnTeddyI don't want some random sleep timer, I want it to be quick.07:10
JohnTeddyyou know, I turn on my computer, I want to brose right away.. I don't want to wait for sleep 10 or something.07:11
ActionParsnipmurphylan: i don't use skype07:12
JohnTeddyI could modify the browser icon, so it executes the ssh command.07:12
ActionParsnipmurphylan: the test call will enable you to test all aspects of sound07:12
JohnTeddyThat seems like the best solution right now.07:12
murphylanActionParsnip: where is the test call?07:12
ActionParsnipJohnTeddy: could have a script pinging and when it passes then you are connecteded and it can launch the browser then terminate07:13

cladTyping "ibus" in synaptic gives me the lib used to type simplified chinese in pinyin07:25
cladBut I can't seeem to see any lib related to the bopomofo based input method07:25
critical_maxshadghost, "sudo apt-get autoremove". check "apt-get --help" for an easy reference to the other options.07:26

ac7ssmurphylan, what do you mean by restart ubuntu server? the entire machine? or just part of it?07:26
cladSynaptic reports it as not installed07:26
murphylanac7ss: yes, I use reboot07:27
ac7ssmurphylan, 'reboot now'07:27
murphylanac7ss: I want install a desktop for ubuntu server, but I do not know whcih one can I use?07:28
cladBeside zhuyin isn't an input method, it only allows to type bopomofo directly (like ㄨㄛˇ not 我)07:28
cladKimmen, nop it's not chewing it's another one that's actually much better07:28
ohsixclad: run ibus-setup and see what input method it's using07:28
ac7ssmurphylan, I believe you can just install gnome-desktop and it will take care of the dependancies.07:28
ohsixsince i reinstalled it's not actually using ibus, but the gtk input methods07:28
cladIt is only listed as"Bopomofo" nothing more precise ohsix07:29
murphylanac7ss: thanks07:29
cladEven the "about" button isnt any help07:29
ohsixclad: gcin?07:31

cladgoogling the email adress on the about dialog box I found what seems to be the blog of the developper07:32

ac7ssclad: use google translate. :)07:33
ActionParsnipclad: try babelfish07:33
ohsixhrm i thought they just used existing input methods07:33
ac7ssActionParsnip, I find it interesting that babelfish.altavista.com still works.07:33
ohsixibus-pinyin: It includes a Chinese Pinyin input method and a Chinese ZhuYin (Bopomofo) input method for IBus.07:33

spectacularhi, i have a laptop that dual-boots ubuntu and windoze...  after dist-upgrade, grub doesn't detect my windows partition anymore.  it used to always do so automatically in menu.lst. now grub is using a cfg instead of a lst, and no windoze.  thoughts?07:34

TwisolI have a brand new Asus G73sw laptop, and Ubuntu isn't recognizing most (any?) of the function key actions. For example, the brightness keys produce a gauge on the top-right but it doesn't actually affect the brightness, and the volume keys don't do anything. Also, nothing shows up in acpi_listen for the volume keys.07:51
bazhangMindPhreak, take the chat elsewhere07:51
TwisolMy old laptop was a G73jh, and there's no visible difference between the keyboards, but the old one work(ed|s) fine.07:51
TwisolI've looked high and low for information but it's really sparse. =/07:52
MindPhreakTwisol, Maybe it is a keymap problem.07:52
ubottuKeyboard shortcuts can be set in System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts. If your multimedia keys don't work with that, try the 'keytouch' package, explained at http://keytouch.sourceforge.net - See !Keyboard for changing layouts07:52
MindPhreakTry setting your keyboard map to 104key general Intl'07:52
TwisolMindPhreak, well, the old laptop worked out of the box, no configuration needed07:52
TwisolMindPhreak, I'll try that07:52
rebirthhelp! I just updated to maverick and now my wifi won't work. :(07:53
ac7ssrebirth, what is your wifi chipset?07:54
TwisolMindPhreak, there's no 104 intl. There's 105 intl though... but that's what it was already set to!07:54
MindPhreakTwisol, try setting up the shortcuts in System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts to use the FN key in combination with the Function key for hotkey support07:54
MindPhreakSee if that helps07:54
TwisolMindPhreak, I tried that and it wouldn't recognize the keypress07:55
rebirthac7ss I don't know07:55
MindPhreakTwisol, what was the latop model again, If I may know?07:55

timlkim using ubuntu 10.10. I have a couple of digital certs which i want to install. The certs have to be installed at the OS level.On windows we double click on each  cert to install it. What is the procedure for installing digital certs on ubuntu ?07:56
Mr_BondHi, is it possible to run tasks that fork into the background with upstart?07:56
rebirthac7ss internal07:56
maxillusionistrebirth did you mind restarting ??07:57
TwisolMindPhreak, if it would help, I can paste the output from acpi_listen on both models. I know some things appear on the old one that don't appear on the new one.07:57
jarnosUpdate manager is very slow in 10.10. E.g. building data structures takes ages.07:57
MindPhreakTwisol, Go to System->Preferences->Keyboard and select the type of keyboard to " Asus Laptop"07:57
MindPhreakInstead of the system-wide default " 105key Intl' "07:58
MindPhreakSee if that helps.07:58
TwisolIt doesn't seem like it.07:58
MindPhreakThat did once happen with my Asus VX507:58
ac7ssrebirth,  'lshw -class network'07:59
timlkThe cert names are BuiltinObjectToken-RSASecurity2048v3.crt and RSAPublicRootCAv1.crt07:59
rebirthmaxillusionist, I tried restarting07:59
TwisolMindPhreak: acpi_listen displays the acpi events as they come in, right? It's not displaying the events that the old one's getting, which makes me think that the events aren't being received at all07:59
timlkhow should i install these certs in ubuntu ?07:59
Mr_Bondseems can use pre-start and post-start07:59
MindPhreakTwisol, Yes, acpi_Listen reports to all acpi events.08:00
TwisolMindPhreak, and the keyboard backlight isn't working either. I had a Windows install once that didn't have the Asus ATK driver installed and it was like this, but I installed it and the backlight and everything came on. Could this be a driver issue?08:00
MindPhreakWell, I can't say about the backlight bit, for I never used backlit keyboards.08:00
MindPhreakThis can't possibly be a driver issue.08:00
TwisolHeheh. It's not so much the specific functionality as it is the fact that none of this is working08:00
MindPhreaksince most keyboard drivers are generic.08:00
MindPhreakand not proprietary.08:00
TwisolAsus provides its own ATK driver, though.08:00
MindPhreakAnd they usually come with kernels.08:01
Twisolwithout it, the media functions weren't working08:01
MindPhreakI see....08:01
TwisolI can provide a link on their site08:01
MindPhreakMaybe, roll back the ATK drivers08:01

critical_maxiNeedHelp07, the PPA is specific to FF4 though08:51
critical_maxso it shouldn't affect other software on your system08:52
iNeedHelp07critical_max: so, I'm removing it..08:52
critical_maxiNeedHelp07, after the PPA is removed you can use Software Center or apt-get to check for updates (will rebuild the available list and FF4 won't be there anymore) and then install FF, 3 being the only available option08:52
critical_maxiNeedHelp07, actually Update Manager if you want to do it graphically, software center doesn't have an "check updates" button08:53

headsetis it me ati drivers dont work well ubuntu10:19
soreauheadset: It depends on which driver you are referring to. There is the proprietary fglrx and the default open radeon driver10:20

zvacetjonesyNH:  you don't need two users with admin privilrges10:22
soreauheadset: Then you have installed a driver that entirely does not support your card10:22
jonesyNHzvacet: I'll have what i want..10:22
zvacetsoreau: it was solution for me10:23
headseti have ?10:23
oCeanjonesyNH: by default, on ubuntu, there is no login for the root user. A regular user in the admin group can use sudo to run root commands.10:23
soreauheadset: Yes, fglrx hasnt supported your card for a few years now10:23
zvacetjonesyNH:  sorry your comp your decision you can add second user to admin group10:23
oCeanjonesyNH: but if you are able on your current vps to switch (or even login) as root, that you can perfectly well use the command that was shown to you10:23
jonesyNHoCean: when i run sudo.. it says access denied or whatever10:23
jonesyNHoCean: i can login to root10:23
jonesyNHoCean: so there is root...10:23
jorisHi. Howcome symlinks are world writeable in ubuntu?10:23
soreauheadset: You need to remove it. 1) Look int /usr/share/ati/ for an uninstall script 2) dpkg -l|grep fglrx and remove any package with ii next to it 3) Reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx and -dri 4) Cross fingers 5) Cold boot the machine10:24
oCeanjonesyNH: ok, login/become root, and run the adduser command on the existing user.10:24
headsetdamn so got to go back to windows10:24
soreauheadset: No, you broke your drivers so you fix them10:24
jonesyNHoCean: i think maybe vps are different.. they modify it so u can login as root...10:24
ikoniajonesyNH: use the admin gui10:25
jonesyNHoCean: or so it seems10:25
jonesyNHikonia: i said its gandi vps10:25
juk!sudo | jonesyNH10:25
ubottujonesyNH: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo10:25
ikoniajonesyNH: VPS builds are often modified ubuntu versions, so it's best to ask your vnedor for support10:25

elFidel!ask | DemoOn12:30
ubottuDemoOn: 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. :-)12:30
DemoOnelFidel: ok, nobody can, nvm12:30
soreauanup: What do you mean doing it in command?12:30
anupsoreau, the interviews told me that i have to do the same by using commands instead of script12:30
s3r3n1t7anup, that is a command. In fact, these are multiple commands chain together.12:30
soreauanup: what commands? What interviews?12:31
czardozjob interviews I guess12:31
soreauanup: and what does this have to do with ubuntu?12:31
elFidelthis channel is just insane ...bye12:31
soreauanup: Try ##linux or #bash12:31
anupfind all those files, whose content have the pattern "a" repeated only once12:31
s3r3n1t7soreau, if i may jump in .... i think he should use find12:31
soreaus3r3n1t7: rock on12:31
soreauI have no idea what he is talking about12:32
anupdavid. find won't work12:32
anupsee this link soreau12:32
anupu will understand from the script12:32
anupwhat i want to say12:32
czardoztry to cat all files and grep <space>a<space>12:32
soreauanup: Yes, I saw it and I asked you what you meant by commands12:32
s3r3n1t7anup, find will work. In fact, it has worked, does work, and will continue to work.12:33
soreauanup: but i was asked to do it by command <-- what do you mean by this?12:33
anupgrep -io a *|awk '{count[$1]++}END{for(j in count) print j,""count[j]""}' FS=:|awk -F " " '$2==1{print $1}'12:33
jinkanup: wth? :S12:33
czardozwhy ask if you have the answer :-S12:33
jinkgrep -ic a *12:33
anupbut my command doesn't work12:34
soreau! work | anup12:34
ubottuanup: Doesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.12:34
anupas grep -o a * has differnt output12:34

s3r3n1t7anup, i can't say i'm really surprised. You're trying to go the impossible way. Use find (which is a command) or just grep. But i wonder, why do you need our help to complete an assignment from an interview? You'd still flunk out.12:35

FirefisheI'm using ubuntu 10.04.  I'm trying to transfer files to a sansa e260 music player/data drive.  I've never had any problems before when I wanted to transfer files, I'd just do it.  Now when I try to move files to the player, it says it's in read-only mode.12:43
anupwhat is that12:43
s3r3n1t7anup, so now you're changing the assignment. Instead of showing which files have an a, you're trying to count how many .... could you 1. be more specific and 2. do your own homework please?12:43
