gordonjcpugh00:00
gordonjcpjackd is totally broken in 10.0400:00
gordonjcpwhy is it trying to pull in Qt4?00:00
royale1223Achylles_: when i sudo it, it says "wrong instance"00:00
gordonjcpoh, this is ridiculous, that's the most retarded thing I've ever seen00:01
gordonjcpjackd depends on qjackctl00:01
ruggeroroyale1234, my fstab is simple, just the usual cdrom  and floppy mounts, plus the swap and ext4 HD mount00:01
SarcasMo2Where can i find the downloads from Ubuntu software center?00:01
NewWorldSarcasMo2:  There are plenty of public mirrors00:01
royale1223what partition do you have as home ruggero ?00:01
raido_alex86: also see http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=52083500:02
zvacetSarcasMo2:  everything you downloaded with ubuntu software center,synaptic,apt-get  is in /var/cache/apt/archives00:02
alex86raido_ thnx00:02
ruggeroroyale1223, I have nothing referring to my home in fstab. I moved my home using command line.00:02
zvacetSarcasMo2: select faster or closer mirror to you00:03
Achylles_royale1223, do you have a command called service?00:03
ruggeroroyale1223, copied files from old home using cp -a00:03
WeThePeopleis BS-Player available for linux00:03
royale1223Achylles_: command called service? whats that? i dont think so.00:03
SarcasMo2zvacet: thx00:03
zvacetSarcasMo2:np00:04
ruggeroroyale1223, this is my fstab HD mount: UUID=0cc68ffb-0d2f-491a-90f3-71bf1b58dbc6 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       100:04
royale1223ruggero: okay00:04
Achylles_royale1223, because if you have you can just do:    sudo service gdm restart00:04
royale1223Achylles_: restart: Unknown instance:00:05
AsadNewWorld: Yes. But I don't really know what kind of a command is used to toggle display in ubuntu .. that was my main question00:05
SarcasMo2is there a faster way to switch desktops? (keyboard combo)00:05
royale1223ruggero: give me output of "sudo fdisk -l"00:06
XuMuKroyale1223: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart00:06
ruggeroroyale1223, now logging in seems to work as usual and almost all functions are OK with the new home folder. However, some settings configurations were not OK, I checked and my new home folder is completely owned by root:root, not me. I tried all methods to restore it back, but did not work00:06
ruggeroroyale1223, ok just a sec00:06
NewWorldAsad:  try 'xset dpms force off'00:06
=== tschundeee_ is now known as tschundeee
NewWorldSarcasMo2:  Faster how?00:06
Achylles_royale1223, so you have to hit ctrl + alt + backspace to restart the X Server > which means logout > login.00:07
naomi__What program can I use thats like teamviewer? Where my friend (using windows) can connect to me and use my desktop?00:07
royale1223XuMuK: that did it, thanks00:07
Gump-how is freenode connected to reddit?00:07
NewWorldGump-:  Haha why don't you ask them00:07
ruggeroroyale1223, it is few lines, should just paste-and-copy it or there is a better way ?00:07
NewWorldnaomi__:  Look for 'VNC' apps00:07
SarcasMo2im now selecting them with my mouse00:08
SarcasMo2NewWorld: Im now selecting them with my mouse00:08

NewWorldnaomi__:  You could Google :P00:10
gordonjcpgetting sound working in Ubuntu is such an exercise in frustration00:10

culb--00:10
royale1223ruggero: which one is your home part?00:11
NewWorldculb:  She asked. Would it be better to ignore her?00:11
gsfaii am currently 100% confused00:11
ruggeroroyale1223, it is a folder inside /dev/sda1100:11
gsfaiHow the hell can my system have no device file for the sound output and for the microphone input?00:12
gordonjcpgsfai: I'm coming to the conclusion that Ubuntu just doesn't do sound00:12
gsfaii mean it is starting to get annoying00:12
royale1223ruggero: a folder inside sda11? which folder?00:12
NewWorldgsfai:  You have no /dev/dsp00:12
gordonjcpgsfai: except for obnoxiously loud startup sounds that wake up the entire village00:12
NewWorldXD00:12
naomi__Ermm, is Terminal Server Client the same as Teamviewer? Like I dont just want to screenshare, i want him to be able to do things on my laptop00:12
gordonjcpbecause of course there's no way to stop it blasting out its startup sound and if you forget that the PC is plugged into the mixer...00:13
NewWorldruggero:  sda11 is in /dev ... those are device files. You won't find folders in there00:13
ruggeroroyale1223, a folder with my name: /myname. There are other folders there.00:13
NewWorldgordonjcp:  Worst time is when it does this during lectures xD00:13
gsfaicat: /dev/dsp: No such file or directory00:14
NewWorldgsfai:  You are massively fucked xD00:14

gordonjcpNewWorld: doing it at 23:40 was quite bad00:14
gsfaiNewWorld: it doesnt even make sense, 90% of the programs can play music, and record stuff... i just seem to be unable to do it myself or with the remaining 10%00:15
princej88Jordan_U: let me know what you think.00:15
gsfaii think im going in the process of 'HOW DO I PLAYED MUSIC'00:15
NewWorldgsfai:  What is your sound daemon?00:15
gsfaiNewWorld: lsmod?00:15
ruggeroroyale1223, this is my prompt. http://paste.ubuntu.com/587120/00:15
Achylles_naomi__, So you can use ssh depending on what you want to be done in your laptop00:16
NewWorldgsfai:  PulseAudio, Alsa, JACK?00:16
royale1223ruggero: do "ls -la" and pastebin00:16
gsfaii am afraid i have all of the 3 :d00:17
Rehanguys is it ok if i install without a swap partition?00:17
ruggeroroyale1223, yes I see a home folder in my root.00:17
ruggeroroyale1223, ok00:17
naomi__he wants to get ubuntu. and he just wants to be able to connect to my laptop and just look around, yknow? i have no idea what program to get or where to install it.00:17
NewWorldgsfai:  Maybe they are conflicting with each other :S why do you need them all?00:17
gsfaiNewWorld: well i dont know, i just remember being able to work with all of them00:17
NewWorldRehan:  Yes, but kinda depends how much RAM you have00:17
gsfaiits probably pulseaudio though00:18
royale1223naomi__: have you installed ubuntu yet?00:18
Picinaomi__: I don't have a gui in front of me, but there is a remote desktop setting under your System menu. That will allow someone with VNC to connect to your computer.00:18
ruggeroroyale1223, ls -la from which folder? I paste from root now00:18
RehanNewWorld: 6GB. Would that work?00:18
naomi__Yeah royale.00:18
Achylles_naomi__, ssh00:18
NewWorldRehan:  Yep more than enough. I have 2GB and no swap00:18
royale1223ruggero: do it from /media/disk52/ruggero_home00:18
naomi__K i'll try that00:18
NewWorldgsfai:  What are you trying to play sound in and it's not working?00:19
RehanNewWorld: ok great. The other question I have is when I choose the mount folder for the partition, what folder should I select? / or /home?00:19
ruggerohttp://paste.ubuntu.com/587121/00:19
royale1223naomi__: or just use ssh00:19
ruggeroroyale1223, http://paste.ubuntu.com/587121/00:19
NewWorldRehan:  'mount folder'?00:19
ruggeroroyale1223, do it again00:19
gsfaiNewWorld: sound from tuxguitar, but the basic problem, is that i NEED a device file to record from!00:19
zvacetRehan: are you installing ubuntu00:19
RehanNewWorld: it asks for where the partition should be mounted or something similar when i create the partition to install ubuntu00:19
NewWorldroyale1223:  naomi__ : I think she wants a GUI something; she doesn't sound like she's up for setting up and using SSH00:19
Rehanzvacet: yeah00:20
naomi__idk what ssh is lol. or how to connect the two.. like on teamviewer you just have an id and password you enter.00:20
gsfaiarecord does fine, but where in heaven does it take its data from?00:20
zvacetRehan: if you do you can make two partitions root / about 10 GB and home /home for resr of space00:20
Achylles_NewWorld, ssh can open GUI as well00:20
ruggeroroyale1223, http://paste.ubuntu.com/587122/00:20
Rehanzvacet: ok what do you recommend if i only have one partition?00:21
alex86raido_: what i have done. I have installed IDE and interpreter of version 3.1 and not I can work in envirnment with python3. btw it lanches python3 from terminal in response to command python300:21
zvacetRehan: having separate home is good when it comes to reinstall fresh install00:21
zvacetRehan: you must have root and format it as ext400:21
royale1223ruggero: do "cd /home && ls -la"00:21

zvacetRehan: it still can be primary,because you can have 4 partitions00:23
alex86raido_: but why?00:23
NewWorldRehan:  It's best to install on Logical... or else you might have problems with MBR and boot flags and what not. These problems are fixable but just time-consuming to fix00:23
pp7does anyone know why my gnome session will quit/crash (back to login gdm) whenever I use a QT app00:24

zvacetsorry for flood my mistake00:35
royale1223ruggero: whoa.. you cant do that.. you need a empty partition for /home00:36
alex86raido_, the problem is that in the dir there are my python3 files are python2.6 files as well.00:36
ruggeroraido, everything seems to work well. Only some settings -for example audio volume control- and others are grayed and do not work. I googled around and discovered that these do not work if ownership is not yours. I discovered that all my home folder files are root:root and not myname:myname. So I used chown command to fix it, but it gives no error, but no change...00:37
NewWorldalex86:  Why is that a problem?00:37
raido_ruggero: and you are sure that the partition you moved your home to is a linux partition type?00:37
NewWorldruggero:  What are the permissions like? Like rwx?00:38
ScarabDrownerIn 10.10, I have a keyboard layout indicator by the clock, and 5 different workspaces through Compiz. When I select one keyboard layout on one workspace, it changes back to the default keyboard layout when I switch to a different workspace. Also, my "hotkey" for switching layouts only works one-way. It'll switch to the second layout, but not back to the original. How do I fix these problems?00:38
alex86NewWorld: i though that python3 is separate folder, so i can select append it to PYTHONPATH00:38
mikehj316Okay, so I still have the same problem I did earlier today00:38
mikehj316I am where I can begin to work on it00:38
royale1223raido_: he actually copied files from /home/ruggero to s subfolder an ntfs partion.00:38
NewWorldalex86:  That doesn't sound like a problem to me :S00:39
mikehj316Can someone help me reconfigure Ubuntu 10.10 to read my windows files?00:39
alex86NewWorld: actually i don`t get there i can find this PYTHONPATH?00:39
azizLIGHTSffmpeg package doesnt come with mp3 encoding?00:39
royale1223raido_: no wonder he is having permission problems.00:39
mikehj316I am using them on the same computer, alongside windows00:39
raido_royale1223: He need to have home in a linux partition if the permissions and ownerships are to work correctly, also he will need to usermod to change the path to his home dir00:40

royale1223raido_: yeah. but he cant make linux partion, no space i think00:41
raido_ruggero: that does not show the partition type, what is the partition type00:41
mikehj316is anyone able to help me?00:41
NewWorldmikehj316:  Have you installed that ntfs-3g?00:41
alex86NewWorld: well to me as well00:41
NewWorldalex86:  So what do you want?00:41
mikehj316NewWorld: what is that?00:41
ruggeroraido, it is a ntfs partition00:41
NewWorldruggero:  I meant in the /dev folder. Like this: 'ls -la /dev'00:41
royale1223ruggero: you need to copy those files back.00:42
alex86NewWorld: change python path so, i can work with python3 by default, not with python2.600:42
NewWorldmikehj316:  It's a program you can run from your terminal to switch keyb layout00:42
raido_ruggero: you need not to have home in a partition type other that linux, i.e. ext, xfs, jfs etc00:42
mikehj316NewWorld: Where can I find it?00:42
ScarabDrownerNewWorld: the reason I set up a hotkey to switch layouts was so I didn't have to go and do setxkbmap every time I needed to switch back and forth00:42
jdolan_that was awesome.00:43
ruggeroraido, ok... so I have to redo all procedure. Strange that all else seems to work00:43
jdolan_i have all of my email on an IMAP server arranged in folders.00:43
jdolan_i just tried using evolution for the first time.00:43
NewWorldalex86:  running 'python' should default to python3. To run the python2 interpreter there is a seperate bin called 'python2', do you have both?00:43
NewWorldmikehj316:  You know the terminal?00:43
jdolan_it took it upon itself to filter ALL OF MY EXISTING FOLDERS and moved half of my sorted messages into Junk.00:43
jdolan_WHAT THE F00:43
mikehj316NewWorld: yes00:43
raido_ruggero: yes, the files will work but the linux kernel does not respect or understand the permission and ownership flags on other FS types00:43
alex86NewWorld: yes. i have both, but python 2 is by default.00:44
jdolan_what a complete pos Evolution is.  wow.00:44
raido_ruggero: sou you will have those issues00:44
NewWorldScarabDrowner:  You can assign a keyboard shortcut to a setxkbmap command. That's my solution for you lol :P more like workaround00:44
jdolan_can not believe Ubuntu doesn't ship with Thunderbird as default.00:44
alex86NewWorld: but i want to work only with python300:44
NewWorldScarabDrowner:  I can give you my script that cycles through keyboard layouts :)00:44
ruggeroraido, I see... that's maybe why chown just ignore my commands00:44
raido_ruggero: correct00:44
NewWorldalex86:  So when you type 'python' in terminal, it goes into the 2.7 interpreter?00:45
NewWorldmikehj316:  Search for NTFS in software centre, it could be there. Otherwise search for it in synaptic00:45
alex86NewWorld: yeah, 2.600:45
ScarabDrownerNewWorld: is that the aliases to switch to qwerty if you type aeou and to dvorak if you type asdf?00:45

cobe571I tried in every way ... gnome-bluetooth, bluemon, bludevil, etc.. There is a way to send files from cell to pc via bluetooth?  from pc to cell works, but not the other way...01:30
NewWorldzelrik:  What's the problem01:30
reivanenok01:30
zelrikNewWorld: sudo mount -o remount,unhide /dev/cdrom doesnt work01:30
weezazizLIGHTS, The files I want to share are much too large for that. I have been using samba, but it's been acting up on me01:30
NewWorldzelrik:  Test if your fstab will do it: sudo mount /dev/cdrom01:30
zelrikNewWorld: mount: can't find /dev/cdrom in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab01:31
weezNewWorld, In the end, I only need a folder on one computer ot be accessible on the network. Do you know if NFS is easy to configure for this purpose?01:31
cobe571There is a way to send files from cell to pc via bluetooth?  from pc to cell works, but not the other way...01:32
NewWorldzelrik:  Try /dev/sr0 instead. Or check whatever it says in the fstab01:32
NewWorldweez:  I don't, sorry. Maybe rsync?01:32
zelrikNewWorld: oh I see, I ll check01:33
weezNewWorld, I guess I could try rsync. I was really hoping for a more elegant solution than running rsync regularly01:33

SikSo: trying to install Ubuntu from the LiveCD. First time, it fails mid-install because of "I/O error" (probably failed to read something, most likely would have worked if it had retried, but it didn't even give me the option to clean the CD and retry!).03:12
SikSecond time, it copies everything, then it fails when configuring something, and the error message isn't helpful (besides no giving me any real information, it sends me straight to the LiveCD install in hope that I can "research about it").03:12
SikAnd now I think that it also screwed up the ext4 partition it made, because now the installer is completely unable to recognise the partitions on the hard disk and the only options it gives me are to wipe it!03:13

kannan_bonjoyee: thanks. i am on ubuntu 10.10 and have gcc 4.4. i want to know if there is a prepackaged gcc 4.6 that is available for side by side installation03:53
Jordan_UTBotNik1: You can't upgrade from the CD, though you can re-install preserving your current /home (even if it's not on a separate partition).03:54
Roasted_Does anybody know a way I can auto mount a specific Windows share to the Documents folder in a user's home directory EVERY time ANYBODY logs in via domain accounts?03:54
xanguakannan_: maybe there is a ppa, who knows, or upgrade to karmic03:54
xanguakannan_: or compile it yorself03:54
bonjoyeekannan_: dont think so...ubuntu sticks with the version for entire eol....only provides security/bug fixes...03:54
TBotNik1Jordan_U: That link does not have any instructions on 9.04 to 10.04, I read it twice03:55
xanguabonjoyee: lucid is not eol03:55
kannan_xangua: thanks. i was looking exactly for some ppa. i wanted to check that out before i started building myself.03:55
RehanJordan_U, sorry to keep bothering you, but do you have any other suggestions? thank you03:55
xanguaTBotNik1 install lucid from scratch03:55
gaelfxkannan_: as a warning, PPAs don't usually do side-by-side03:56
Jordan_UTBotNik1: You didn't read it carefully enough then. You can't skip releases (as stated clearly in the link) and it has instructions for upgrading from 9.04 to 9.10 then from 9.10 to 10.04.03:56
Jordan_URehan: No, sorry.03:56
broodwichI can't access my mouse at /dev/input/mouse1 I have tried finding a 'call' to it in the xorg.conf, where i expected to find it, but to my dismay xorg.conf did not exist. subsequently i tried stop gdm and then Xorg -configure to force a .conf file but that ended in failed, any ideas? it's a usb Logitech keyboard with a touchpad. cat /dev/input/mouse1 shows that it is functioning but the GUI does not utilize it. i'm on PowerPC, also 03:56
bonjoyeexangua: i did not say that...but gcc wont go from 4.4 to 4.6 in lucid...as far as i know...you'll only get 4.4.1x, 4.4.2x etc...03:56
TBotNik1Jordan_U: It only covers 8.10 to 9.04 and stops there.  Nothing on anything from 9.04 is on that page.  READ it!03:57
sdijsduhaiuHey03:57
sdijsduhaiuI'd like some help using my xbox 360 wired controller's right thumb stick as a mouse03:57

naomi__xangua: what do i type into terminal to run the cairo thing?03:58
lars_gOk one question... important one... where is the key for encrypted home dirs stored at?03:58
xanguanaomi__: the cairo comand, i do not know it, don't use it03:59
sdijsduhaiuHeh. I used a seperate program for that but it was on windows.03:59
xanguatype cairo , hit tab and see what you get naomi__03:59
broodwichlars_g: i do not know but i would guess in /etc/passwd03:59
naomi__nothing at all.03:59
sdijsduhaiuSan andreas for pc won't recognise the right thumbstick as something to move the camera, but it will recognise the mouse03:59
sdijsduhaiuSo if I use the right thumbstick as a mouse, It'll work04:00

broodwichHow can I access the usb mouse in Ubuntu?04:01
barfI need to configure a link net, anyone? is iproute2 still in use? Or are there better ways by now?04:01
gaelfxbroodwich: there should be no problem doing it, have you tried removing it and reinserting it?04:01
bonjoyeebroodwich: it should be plug n play...04:02
naomi__and on any digichat i use, java platform. the windows won't close via the X. pm conversations won't close at all, anyone know why or how to fix this?04:02
bonjoyeebroodwich: unless its not detected...04:02
TBotNik1Jordan_U: Yes "Jaunty 9.04 to Karmic 9.10" is there, but nothing on 9.10 to 10.04, so why do you keep pointing me to an incomplete document set, or is there nothing newer?04:02
gaelfxsorry folks, #chromium is crickets, how do you change the handling of clicking email addresses in chromium? I want it to open compose in gmail within chromium?04:03
gaelfxbroodwich: might be a good idea to pastebin lsusb with the mouse plugged in04:03
xanguaTBotNik1 what you need to do is to cleant install a newer and supported versión04:03
broodwichbonjoyee: it is a touchpad integrated into a usb keyboard, the keyboard works but the touchpad isn't seen04:03
Jordan_UTBotNik1: 9.10 is still (just barely) supported, so isn't covered by that page. As stated on that page, "For upgrading supported releases please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Upgrades".04:04
gaelfxbroodwich: is there a button on the laptop to enable/disable the touchpad?04:04
broodwichi use to be able to nano xorg.conf and put a call to it at /dev/input/mouse1 but the xorg.conf is gone04:04
broodwichgaelfx: no it is just integrated04:04
Znerkyany1 here who can help me with a problem regarding linux with an ati card?04:05
Jordan_UTBotNik1: I actually *have* read the entire page, despite your accusations. I suggest that you do as well before asking further questions.04:05

NoSpinIf i want to play a windows game, and wine isn't cutting it, what are my options other then vmware?04:16
mzuverinkaxisys, make sense, thanks you hoopy frood04:17
Jordan_UV01: Ubuntu server (or debian, but that's offtopic here). It doesn't make much sense to install Ubuntu or XUbuntu which contain Desktop Environments by default when all you want is a server.04:17
DiamondciteNoSpin: VirtualBox is vmware like, there is also Xen(needs newer CPUs)04:17
g15ubuntu keep freezing  my mouse click doesn't response. only the keyboard04:17
NoSpinDiamondcite: the vm products don't seem to work well.. i keep getting paging issues04:17

NoSpinDiamondcite: i remember cedga was a good option, but it looks like they are gone. is there a replacement for them?04:17
DiamondciteNoSpin: Assuming you have a Virtualization Capable CPU, and enough ram of course, it should work better?04:18
V01Jordan_U, as i said its gnna be a home server and would be accessed later via a web interface probably from other system if needed.04:18

ubottug15: In an emergency, you may be able to shutdown cleanly and reboot by holding down Alt+PrintScreen and typing, in succession, R, E, I, S, U and B. For an explanation, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key04:19
mjsNoSpin, vm used to work fine for me, but since then, have gone to VirtualBox04:19
DiamondciteNoSpin: Not too likely, unless it has something to do with Licensing, Cedega used to be quite nice, currently I don't know. AppDB generally has people commenting if it happens to work on other versions.04:19

cool_coasterTheoretician:  only java and flash04:42
cool_coasterneed upgrading04:42
soreaulinux_is_my_hero: I suspect that the nouveau module is being loaded and it's causing the problem. So you need to tell linux not to load it, or load it without modesetting (which may work)04:42
soreaulinux_is_my_hero: But I don't have a live session in front of me so I can't tell you exactly how, sorry04:43

Theoreticiancool_coaster: yeah, but with all the upgrades that come out, I wouldn't be surprised if your system is just out of date04:50

TBotNik1All:  BRB, checking another machine!04:52
lixinfishapn: the same error, "Cannot execute bash: No such file or directory". but sudo -i worked.04:52
soreaulinux_is_my_hero: There are two ways to do mode setting for your monitor with the graphics hardware. You have user mode setting which means the code that makes it happen is in user space, and you have kernel mode setting (kms) where the code happens in the kernel to set your monitors resolutions, refresh etc.04:52
Theoreticiancool_coaster: well, its late where I am, I have to sleep sometime. Good luck with the install.04:52
cool_coasterk04:52
lixinfishapn: I thought this is still the chsh's problem, how can I reset that?04:52
cool_coasternight Theoretician04:52
Znerkyis there any command or program in linux which can give me the name on the cpu?04:53
soreaulinux_is_my_hero: Since the driver is directly responsible for setting the mode for the output device (your monitor), it would make since to try a different code path or just not load nouveau module all together04:53
icedteaZnerky: look at "dmesg" output04:53
linux_is_my_herowell i tried loading with "nomodeset" selected (or deselected, not sure which) and it works just fine04:53
apnlixinfish, try "/usr/bin/sudo -i /usr/bin/chsh"04:54
Znerkywat04:54
linux_is_my_herothen if i install the right nvidea drivers after install it should be fine, right?04:54
soreaulinux_is_my_hero: The only way you can do this from a live session is to use kernel parameters (aka boot options)04:54
Znerkyim still new to linux04:54
broodwichZnerky: sometimes machines have a BIOS setting to auto-shutdown at a certain temp04:54
soreaulinux_is_my_hero: In theory, yes because nvidia module would be loaded instead of nouveau04:54
apnlixinfish, if i am understanding correctly, you are changing shell for root. is that right?04:54
ceoDesktop effects could not be enabled on lenovo G460 why?04:54
AnggaDj98Znerky: go to terminal and type dmesg04:54
linux_is_my_herosoreau: what is an indirect register access?04:55
AnggaDj98Znerky: then put it in pastebin and share the link04:55
soreaulinux_is_my_hero: What's that got to do with ubuntu? (and how should I know? :) )04:55
icedteaZnerky: actually, you could do "less /proc/cpuinfo"04:55
Znerkythe terminal couldn't show all of it04:55
linux_is_my_herosoreau: if gave me an error, but its loading 10.10 installer04:55
linux_is_my_heronomodeset is slower, but it works04:56
AnggaDj98icedtea: thanks for calling that out I almost forgot that :)04:56
icedteanp04:56
linux_is_my_herosoreau: don't i have to do something with drivers after my first boot to prevent the vertical lines again?04:56
Znerkythx icedtea about that last part think i can identify it now04:56
soreaulinux_is_my_hero: Well a graphics card has registers and with kms, the kernel is talking directly to the card but with ums, the driver in user space has to talk to the kernel, indirectly setting the registers to program the hardware04:56
broodwichalmost forgot why i came here04:57
soreaulinux_is_my_hero: No, every time you reboot, it resets everything that happened in the live session04:57
AnggaDj98broodwich: to say that you hate freenode04:57
broodwichDoes anyone know what to do about a missing xorg.conf file and a failed Xorg -configure command?04:57

draven_soli want to make logical volumes across disks. should i partition the disks to only have logical partitions or does it not matter if they are primary/logical partitions?04:58
AnggaDj98broodwich: ok04:58
soreaubroodwich: You don't need xorg.conf unless you're trying to use a proprietary driver04:58
linux_is_my_herosoreau: so does that mean nomodeset was selected just for the livecd session so it can go and install (which includes downloading drivers)?04:59
broodwichsoreau: then how can i get it to see my mouse at /dev/input/mouse1?04:59
soreaulinux_is_my_hero: yes and no04:59
soreaubroodwich: Just create xorg.conf with only an InputDevice section, or whatever it's called05:00
soreaubroodwich: It should still respect the options for just an individual section05:00
yawmhey i wanted to as, does anyone know how to check how much time is taken for an application to start?05:00
soreaulinux_is_my_hero: If you can manage to get past the lines and install it, you should be able to fix it easier since whatever you do from the hard disk installation will remain persistent (so you don't have to keep starting over)05:01
broodwichsoreau: so if i build it it will utilize? seems kind of ify to me that xorg would fail to create one for me but then use one if i merely supply a text file. but if you say so05:01

soreaubroodwich: sure, I wasn't giving a politically correct command, though it actually should work for the purposes of getting his drivers working05:19
Znerky1raido_: it did a reboot of the connection after i inputed the dns servers, so now if i reboot it should use those dns servers automatic right?05:19
broodwichsoreau: easy big fella05:19
raido_Znerky1: it should05:19
OUTOFLUKSbroodwich: will it allow me to access a luks encrypted drive?05:19

apnlixinfish, find root (should be 1st line) and at the end change it back to /bin/bash05:23
gaelfxjiltdil: I'm guessing that would depend heavily on what software the router your using has installed05:23

ubottu'Nice' is a property of a process that determines how willing it is to give CPU time to other processes.  A higher value makes it more likely to give away time.  A negative value makes it less likely. Values are from -19 to 19, with 0 being the default.  For more information, type 'man nice' at a terminal.05:40

StarminnAnggaDj98: Well then, I'm going to have to remain faithful to my good friend GNOME.06:05

StarminnAnggaDj98: I know.06:06
AnggaDj98Starminn: and it needs a lot of memory to use them, so dont use KDE unless you want glitches in your desktop06:06
joeb_hi all .. does anyone use firewall ?06:07
joeb_also what is a good firewall ? i just installed firewall06:07
StarminnAnggaDj98: I've been gradually discovering that. I *want* to like it because it's so gosh darn pretty, but every time I try it vomits all over itself, and sometimes GNOME which I don't appreciate much06:07

AnggaDj98gaelfx: to scan bad blocks in your USB drive06:13
TBotNikAll: Error seems to be coming from the "/nonexistant/path/to/file/archive/dir", which I'm guessing is in a config file and needs changing to an actual existing directory.  Am I right?06:13

DaPenguinLew, you should see multiple kernel options on grub bootup, anyhting with a (recovery) tag07:48

rehanPeddy, i'm not sure if there's some command i'm supposed to enter at tty1 after logging in that will load the GUI08:43
rehanPeddy, so i just reboot, and login via recovery mode, then load it in basic low graphics mode08:43
Peddyrehan, bizarre. Sorry about all this fussery. Could you verify that /etc/grub.d/ exists by typing "cd /etc/grub.d" then "ls"?08:44

LorgonJortleI've read that it may be my driver... but I've no idea.08:47
pistolenedjehi08:47
Peddyrehan, as long as you didn't blacklist the standard nvidia driver, it should be good. OK, can you comment out those 2 lines, Grub_gfxmode, by putting # in front of both of them? Then update-grub and reboot another time08:47
jiltdilranjan:?08:47
Peddyrehan, I just want to get a normal boot working so we can proceed with the next step - using binary drivers from nvidia08:48

pistolenedjeirc chat through a commandline.. THIS brings back good old memories!08:48
Peddyrehan, that won't do any harm, afaik. Did you blacklist anything?08:48
rehanPeddy, ok. I should tell you i downloaded the driver for my card from nvidia earlier and installed it via tty1. but i may not have done it properly, but after that i was able to get into my GUI at the proper resolution08:49

ferengeenovitololo, but never the less, if your script is +x and your symlink is an absolute path to the script. the script should be executable. even if the link exists on a noexec mounted directory09:24

Lewfsck?09:25
bluesmakerYankDownUnder: ok, but i don't know how to09:26
soreau! fsck | Lew09:26
ubottuLew: fsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo shutdown -F -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot09:26
rehanPeddy, video=LVDS-1:d09:26

YankDownUnderBabyGirl, Um...really no reason to use Bleachbit...ya might want to get rid of it (always just trouble with that ya know - and this ain't MS Windows)09:26

Peddyrehan_, it won't be absolutely necessary if you still have access to recovery console - it's more of a power-user thing. Althought it would be nice to have09:32

AdvoWorkhi. got a bit of a query regarding a theme problem.latest version of ubuntu, and using the default theme, initially the clock didnt count/change at all. Changed this to ambiance theme(time then updates) but today turned on the PC, time was missing completely and the username is discared a little. I change to the clearlooks/default theme and right away back to the ambiance one and all is ok again. Any ideas please?09:39

Peddyrehan, bizarre. I'm researching some more :/ out of interest, could you add "splash" after "quiet" in your grub file, then update-grub and reboot? separate splash and quiet with a single space.09:47

meuuijgagive me just a minute, it's on my other box. i'll try it :)09:57
Peddyrehan, darn! how important is tty access to you? I know it's nice to have working, but it's becoming very hacky to get working09:57
ohsixejv: the tools that can do partitioning have all pretty much been updated for proper alignment, use gparted and you should be ok09:58

SarcasMohow can i delete programs with the terminal?10:00
rcconfSarcasMo: sudo apt-get remove <program>10:00
Peddyrehan, to tell the truth, it's rarely used - recovery mode provides everything you need. I use TTYs mainly for restarting or killing programs when they become unresponsive. With the coming 11.04 update, your problem may well be fixed in a new version of X.10:00
Jordan_ULew: Follow the directions at http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download .10:00

=== Guest42544 is now known as Guest48150
rcconfSarcasMo: you can also purge other packages and configs with apt-get purge <program>10:01
ohsixet_: it can be done with maximus, or devilspie10:01
SarcasMorcconf: can i do that from root?10:01
rcconfSarcasMo: if you are root you dont need "sudo"10:01
rehanPeddy, i see. Hmm well you know, maybe I will do a fresh install since i haven't installed anything yet, download the nvidia drivers again and give it another shot.10:01
et_ohsix: But my objective is to create a very minimal system with only FF running in maximized mode. A kiosk in essence.10:01

et_ohsix: Any pointers to a tutorial on that geometry param?10:02
LewWait, which way? Peddys or yours?10:02
Peddyrehan, fresh install would be a great idea. I'm doing so myself. I would recommend the ubuntu-supported drivers, once they're available10:02
Lost1anyone know why ubuntu is erasing my media files? .... it downloads to the directory fine, then a few days later I go to see the files, and they are gone....10:02
SarcasMorehan: E: Unable to locate package Kate10:02
rcconfSarcasMo: apt-cache search kate10:02
soreauet_: Yea, if you have no wm, and manage to get the window positioned correctly (and you do not need any other windows at all) then you might be able to get away with that10:03
Peddyrehan, shoot! haha, any question will be easy compared to getting ttys to work (;10:03
soreauet_: Did you try compiz?10:03
candybanrcconf, (not that I recommend running anything as root to a novice, but ....) what is wrong with sudo -i (or sudo root)10:03

PeddyLew, those directions point to my method10:03
et_soreau: not yet. No..10:04
SarcasMorcconf:  it says : E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied) E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?10:04
rcconfSarcasMo: close synaptic manager or software center10:04
* benzaldehyde passionately embraces ashmew2. you magnificent nerd pile :) it worked! hurray!10:04
candybanrcconf, running as root or putting sudo in front of your command are identically dangerous ...10:04
rcconfcandyban: yes10:04
rcconfcandyban: you are right10:04
Peddyrehan, could you give me an example? Like, you want "pictures" to link to a folder titled "Images" instead?10:04
rehanPeddy, could i have those directories link to my "My Docs" or "My Pics" folders on my win7 ntfs partition if i use ntfs-3G10:04
Lewalright many thanks10:04
candybanbtw. What is ubuntu the default password for root? (like the password it asks when it finds inconsistencies in the root partition)10:05
et_soreau: I tried doing that in another system. Gconf -> /apps/compiz/plugins/move/allscreens/options/snapoff_maximized --> helps !! :)10:05
rehanPeddy, i was thinking i'd have my ntfs partition auto-mount on startup, and then have those directories link to their windows counterpart folders10:05
SarcasMorcconf: how do you close synaptic manager? or software center. there both not in my desktop10:05
meuuijgaPeddy, hm that's interesting. it's saying my password for root is wrong, but really one was never set up10:05
ohsixcandyban: the default is random10:05
YankDownUndercandyban, Ain't one. You have to make one, if you REALLY need to...10:05
pumeustif i use photorec to recover data from 'whole disk',  that means i already got all the data and dont need to bother with searching partitions, right?10:05
ohsix!root | candyban10:05
ubottucandyban: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo10:05
soreauet_: Thats just a more complicated way to do it, as opposed to the more friendly ccsm way10:06
Peddymeuuijga, you enter your normal user password10:06

rcconfSarcasMo: some program related with package managing is running..10:06
Peddymeuuijga, bizarre. Try "sudo nvidia-settings" from a terminal10:06
candybanohsix, how does sudo help when the system cannot boot and asks for the root password (or Ctrl-D to continue ... which it can't since the root partition has issues)10:06
Peddyrehan, I know how to do it, but keeping the icons is different. So i'm experimenting10:06
et_soreau: But without compiz, the window just *moves* rather than snap off and unmaximize.. !!10:07
rehanPeddy, sweet. yeah i know its silly but i like those icons :-P10:07
ohsixcandyban: it doesn't, hurr10:07
Peddyrehan, I know, I'm the same (: do "gedit ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs "10:07
Peddyrehan, there you can type in the paths of your ntfs hdd. Do you know how to find the paths of the respective folders//10:07
meuuijgaPeddy,  ok, did that, GUI popped up. i'm able to change the fan settings but not the clock speed10:08
ohsixi must have missed something, single user mode doesn't ask for a password; you can also use init=/bin/bash on the kernel commandline10:08
candybanohsix, so so why did you let the bot believe me that sudo isthe answer10:08

candybanOr is the preferred method to boot from a live cd and fix it that way?10:09
ejvohsix: well i gave it a start position of 1MB, is that too much?10:09
SarcasMorcconf: i just checked system monitor but i dont see anything related (or i overlook it)10:09

guampaManDay: the way i understand it, as long as you can specify an initrd and kernel params, you can use grub1/2/grub4dos/syslinux12:48

guampano just the options12:49
ManDayyes.12:49
ManDayis it maybe related to specifying file=/cdrom/... as a kernel arg?12:49
ManDayi think the problem really is that the kernel assumes that it finds itsself and its data on the cdrom /dev/sr0 where actually its on the usb12:50

KicchiriAlso, what's a good choice for browser & IRC Client?12:54
ohsixyou could just like,  install it; it's a fully mountable fs and you can chroot to it and run the installer12:54
Blizarhi ! Is there a command to know what is the file pointed by a symbolic link?12:56
guampaKicchiri: you can start securing by setting up a firewall12:56
guampa!firewall12:57
ubottuUbuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Firestarter/Gufw (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE) also exist.12:57
ohsixBlizar: ls -l12:57
ohsixguampa: theres not much running by default, and stopping those is advisable before just firewalling everything12:57
jribBlizar: also readlink.  « readlink -f » will keep following symlinks recursively12:58
guampafirewalling is always a good thing anyway12:58

AsadIs there a software in ubuntu to adjust software-based contrast/brightness/gamma etc. (like in windows)..12:59
ohsixguampa: firewalls can be messed with, it's the software and the exposure surface that's a problem, firewalling can be part of that12:59

ohsixAsad: for video outputs or for everything?12:59

DP_ProphetHi all, I have a question concerning broken packages after an update13:01
AsadI can adjust gamma using xgamma but I wanted to adjust contrast/brightness too..13:01
ohsixAsad: xvattr changes the xvideo port properties, and video players occasionally support it directly, as for the rest it'd be driver specific afaik13:01

Asadi currently use xrandr to switch from and to internal/external display ... somehow ubuntu doesn't support fn + f4 on my laptop13:05
ohsixAsad: you should report a bug about that13:05
tim167hello, how do i find out which device is mounted to /media/32rewrewrewr... ?13:05
ohsixAsad: but theres also the monitor applet which uses xrandr and applies your prefs at boot13:05

sunitI am trying to run slon sql90_cluster "dbname=openbravo3rc4" and slon sql90_cluster "dbname=healthopenstagingdb" in ubuntu 9.10 as deamon so that it will start in boot time. Shall I add this file to /etc/rc.local file ?13:06

benzaldehydeAsad:  i don't use a laptop but i can tell you that alt plus a numbered F key will take you between shells and when in GUI alt+ctrl plus F keys will do the same. usually the GUI is on F713:08
Ja23I pressed Ctrl+C in terminal and it interrupted (as it's supposed to) but I'd like to uninterrrupt, can i do this?13:08
resmojrib, this seems not the way ubuntu made this13:08
jribresmo: hmm, how come?13:08
=== adrien_ is now known as Guest36045
benzaldehydeCtrl+C should be Copy, are you thinking of Control+Break?13:09
resmojrib, I mean in the installer, you can checkmark automated updates, and I want this to be undone13:09
ohsixJa23: you can't uninterrupt it, that kills it; you probably wanted ctrl+z13:09
Asadbenzaldehyde: uhh.. alt + ctrl + f4 for toggle display?13:09
jribresmo: yes, you verified that it's done using one of the two packages mentioned on that wiki page?  Can you check if they are installed?13:09
ohsixJa23: then you use job control stuff to work with it, fg, bg, jobs; it's part of your shell13:10
benzaldehydein GUI it that should take you to a shell13:10
antantHey guys. Can anyone tell me how to install old kernels? They don't seem to be in synaptic13:10
Ja23ohsix: So i should press ctrl+Z13:10
resmojrib, yep, also check cron.d and cron.daily nothing found13:10
resmochecked13:10
ohsixJa23: that will interrupt a running program and give you an opportunity to continue it in the background or the foreground; instead of killing it completely13:11
Ja23ohsix: I was in the middle of working on installing a ppa of gnome, and it was asking me a question, and I went to copy and paste the q into google13:11
ohsixJa23: if you wanted to copy things from a terminal when theres a dialogue on it, hold shift so it doesn't send mouse clicks to it13:11
jribresmo: are you sure the updates are enabled?13:12
Ja23ohsix: yeah, I found that out the hard way, haha13:12
Ja23ohsix: So, is there a way to take a step back?13:12
Guest36045howdy, i've a rather serious problem. I removed my inscription files n' I can't find their. I tried with photorec and other programs but it don't work. I must send these files before this friday :13:12
kz3can anyone teach me how to install a tar.gz file?13:12
PiciJa23: in a terminal, ctrl-c is break. to copy, either select the text with your cursor and use middle-mouse to paste. or use shift-ctrl-c or ctrl-ins to copy13:13
jribkz3: you avoid doing so and just use apt13:13
jrib!compile > kz313:13
ubottukz3, please see my private message13:13
ohsixJa23: you'll have to start again; chances are since you interrupted it, it will say packages are broken and to use dpkg-reconfigure or something, then it will re-ask you the question13:13
kz3how to compile?13:13
resmojrib, I ask this myself :). hmm I am installing again in a vm, to see the difference... thx13:13

Lew_when im formatting my HDD what options do I do13:16
Lew_master boot record?13:16
ikoniaLew_: what do you mean, what options ?13:17
Lew_like13:17
benzaldehydeLew_: well that is ultimately up to you, do you mean how to slice it?13:17
ohsixLew_: unless you know you need gpt, yes; use mbr if it's an x8613:17
Lew_gpt?13:17
benzaldehydehuh?13:17
ohsixLew_: linux can read all sorts of types of partitions, but it's up to your computer's bios to boot them; so if it's a boot volume it's important to use mbr13:18
benzaldehydeoh gparted13:18
Lew_im doing it because my HDD is pretty much missing13:18
solvikhi. i'm searching a solution in order to close a session instead of lock it when there is a certain amount of inactivity. i've searched but didn't find any solution13:18
Lew_and it had the orgiginal ubuntu on it13:18
benzaldehydegparted is great13:18
kz3SpitfireWP please see my PM13:18
ohsixsolvik: forcibly closing things can lead to data loss13:18
benzaldehydedoing what13:18
Pici!who13:18
ubottuAs 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 :)13:18
solvikohsix: well, i know. but i still *need* to do that13:19
ohsixsolvik: if it really is inactive stuff will get swapped out for things that are actually running13:19
Ja23Question (double check):  I accidently pressed Ctrl+C while building GNOME, it was paused, telling me I had a phase build error, and asking me a question, is there any possible way to undo my Ctrl+C13:19
ohsixsolvik: then rig up something to kill their session ;]13:19
Lew_Al;right so13:19
jjpsolvik: often you will have to work with gconf-editor to tweak this13:19
ohsixJa23: are you using jhbuild or something? it should ask you what to do if it's interrupted13:19
Lew_Everything to do with myHDD I get this error "Daemon is inhibited"13:20
Ja23ohsix: yeah I was using jhbuild13:20
solvikohsix: the real problem is there i have several pc with a session system (nis). but when somebody is loggued on more than 1 pc he can't run firefox/chrome (the .config/chromium/SingletonLock etc..)13:20
solvikand it's very annoying13:20
solvikso when there is no activity, the session close itself13:20

=== gigi is now known as Guest2801

Lew_its a boot13:22
ohsixLew_: do you have gparted open? those disk tools inhibit udisks while they're running13:22
Lew_No I dont ohsix13:22
benzaldehydeJa23: sir this is a nerd channel kindly take your having a girlfriend and friends and a life elsewhere :)13:22
benzaldehydei'm kidding13:23
Ja23benzaldehyde: =P13:23
Lew_Anything to do with my HDD I get that error13:23
Lew_"Daemon is inhibited"13:23
ohsixLew_: find out whats inhibiting udisks13:23
Ja23benzaldehyde: so, it's OK if I just close the terminal and try it again before going to bed?13:23
