=== IVBela1 is now known as IVBela
soreaumiles: network attached? Does it have an IP?00:00
DasEiejay_: you can make e2fsck optimizing, defrag is not much a concern on ext-fs00:01
ejay_are you sure?00:01
mythomaniacDasEi: sup?00:01
Tech_It is not necessary but recomended00:01
ejay_what is ext-fs00:01

ejay_then what is e2fsck00:03
^Phantom^Is there a DVD creator for ubuntu?00:03

^Phantom^One that can make DVDs with menus00:03
ejay_im sorry but im a beginner00:03
^Phantom^I don't need holywood quality stuff00:03
Tech_do you have onallocaded space on your HD go to computer manegement then disk mangement00:04
^Phantom^Enough to put a video onto a dvd that will play in a DVD player with a simple menu00:04
soreauejay_: ext fs is the ext file system. e2fsck is a file system checker for ext file system00:04
{qp}ejay_: its the program to set up ext-fs partitions00:04
soreau! fsck | ejay_00:04
ubottuejay_: 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 reboot00:04
{qp}and to check them00:04

ZykoticK9dylanjuran, add the Partner repo for Sun's java.00:19
ZykoticK9[thor], don't do Partial upgrades.  if you get this message, you can use "aptitude safe-upgrade" to upgrade what is possible.  But Partial upgrade translates to "system will break"00:20

gimpy1382So how do I get Ubuntu 10.04 to use Sun/Oracle Java instead of OpenJDK? I installed sun-java6-bi, sun-java6-plugin, ia32-sun-java6-bin then did "update-alternatives" to point java to the 32 bit one and also exported a new JDK_HOME variable but Firefox still uses OpenJDK.01:49
Zelozeloshow tough would it be to make a screensaver for ubuntu. the screen saver would be just a bout 200 frames of animation no special settings but transparent in part01:49

ZykoticK9cl3tUs, is it a linux (ext3/4) formatted driver or windows (FAT/NTFS)?04:30
ejvcl3tUs: make a group called family, and put all your users in it, then chown it to family04:30
egarffoscargot: I'm not sure how for you to get those without network.  Since they're restricted, they aren't on the install media...04:30

cl3tUsZykoticK9, If it weren't FAT, could I do it through right click > properties > Permissions?04:31
ZykoticK9cl3tUs, you can't apply linux permission to windows drivers - the permission are set in fstab or something.?!?04:32
oscargotegarff: If I do happen to gain access to the internet, what steps can I take to retrieve my gui and wireless drivers?04:32
ZykoticK9cl3tUs, drives not drivers04:32
egarffcl3tUs: you can also add 'file_mode=777,dir_mode=777' or the like to fstab, although, creating a group and chowning it is a better answer.04:32
BestKeptSecretoscargot, don't drivers pop up automatically04:32
cl3tUsZykoticK9, sorry...I didn't mean to have a typo...04:32
ZykoticK9cl3tUs, i was the one with the typo ;)04:32
BestKeptSecretoscargot, also you can go system -> administrator -> hardware drivers04:33
oscargotBestKeptSecret: If I had internet you mean?? And also I have no GUI T_T04:33

egarffcl3tUs: at terminal chmod -R .groupname /<location>04:34
oscargotBestKeptSecret: Thanks for trying :)04:34
egarffcl3tUs: beware though, if you mistype the location, you'll change ownership on many things.04:34
cl3tUswould it be /media/drivename?04:34

egarffcl3tUs: everything.04:35

raonidHi all! Is there an easy way to run Xubuntu from a USB drive?04:41
ubuntu10_10can i import my contacts and settings from a different ubuntu (on another partition)  ???04:42
onecrazycatAgreed, I think a lot of these blog sites want to talk about the new release because it's the cool thing to do, and they want to seem current, but they don't have anything valuable to say besides saying that Unity is controversial (and it really isn't).  It's a shame, because it's detracting from what is probably going to be a nice solid release.04:42
cl3tUsegarff, same thing.04:42
rumpel_raonid, yes... install it to a usb-drive04:42
egarffcl3tUs: you typed 'cd ..'?04:42
ZykoticK9egarff, you can't apply linux permission/ownership onto a FAT partition... cl3tUs04:42
raonidrumpel_, isn't there something similar to that of ubuntu?04:42
cl3tUsI should change from FAT32?04:42
rumpel_ubuntu10_10, one method would be to just copy the specific user-folder from /home to the other ubuntu04:43
egarffcl3tUs: oh, crap.. missed that it was FAT3104:43
egarff32 even04:43
cl3tUsI can reformat...04:43
ZykoticK9cl3tUs, you don't have too, but you can't treat it the same as linux partitions.04:43
rumpel_raonid, i don't understand your question  o.O04:43
egarffcl3tUs: if you don't want to reformat you can do the 'file_mode=777,dir_mode=777' in the fstab04:43
mickster04slaeya: yes indeed04:43
cl3tUsegarff, I don't mind reformatting, but, we are watching a movie atm and they're really into it.04:44
raonidrumpel_, oh, sorry. I mean, can't I use the Startup Disk Creator to install Xubuntu on a usb, just like I can with Ubuntu?04:44

ZykoticK9cl3tUs, if you do any torrenting use ext404:45
egarffcl3tUs: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ext404:45
rumpel_raonid, i guess... you can start a live-medium with that04:45
slaeyamickster04: thanks for all the help!!!04:45
mickster04slaeya: heh, i hardly did anything, you fixed it yourself :p04:45
egarffcl3tUs: I tend to go ext4 anymore by default...04:46
slaeyayeah but I was blaming ubuntu when it was really my fault04:46
cl3tUsZykoticK9, What is this "torrenting"?  Is that like when waves of water rush in a direction?04:46
raonidrumpel_, that's exactly what I want to do04:46
Unirgyhi, how do i know if my kernel is bigmem?04:46
raonidrumpel_, but it's not working04:46
ZykoticK9cl3tUs, the p2p application.. torrents.  i turned it into a verb there ;)04:46
egarffcl3tUs: ZykoticK9 is right.... if you do anything that is going to risk 'fragmentation', ext4 is better.04:46
porthosehas anyone tried to use conky with unity?04:47
egarffcl3tUs: Delayed allocation FTW04:47
cl3tUsZykoticK9, I was playing :D04:47
rumpel_raonid, you could also try to create a boot-stick with unetbootin (which is a better tool for this task in my opinion)04:47
raonidrumpel_, thanks, I'll try with unetbootin04:48
cl3tUsegarff, is that delayed allocation info in that wikipedia entry?04:48
raonidrumpel_, =)04:48
egarffcl3tUs: yeah.04:48

BestKeptSecret I love wordnet04:50
BestKeptSecreti think it's dope04:50
egarffcl3tUs: I have a couple admins in my team that are LPIC cert'd.04:50
BestKeptSecretegarff, is that cert hard to get?04:51
cl3tUsegarff, Can you shoot me something to study to start a linux server environment?  I want to learn so bad, but there's nobody to learn from in this tiny town.  I want to study the LPI cert book (I have it now).04:51
cl3tUsI want to get CCNA, LPI Cert, SCCM, then next Cisco cert.04:51
egarffBestKeptSecret: That's kind of a loaded question.  Depends on your experience.  There are also 3 levels.04:51
slaeyacl3tUs: CCNA and CCNP are easy enough to find on google04:51
slaeyacl3tUs: if you can handle CCNP then don't stop there go for CCIE04:52
egarffcl3tUs: My recommendation is to take on tasks... start with something like setting up an FTP server, then move on to web server, then mail server, etc.04:52
cl3tUsslaeya, That's what I want to do.  Security route.04:52
egarffcl3tUs: that's how I learned... I came up with ideas, and made them happen.04:52
egarffcl3tUs: that and honestly, reading the linux in a nutshell book from o'reilly and just knowing the linux commands helped tons.04:53
cl3tUsegarff, do you have a forum or area you talk to people about that so I can read how to do it?  Or maybe some Youtube vids on how to?  I have hexacore 3.2 GHz AMD and 8 GB ram.  I am g2g on speed :D04:53
egarffcl3tUs: oh, iptables is good foo, learn and learn iptables.04:53
slaeyacl3tUs: I find most people stutter when it comes to IPV6 for me that was the hardest obstacle in any of the Cisco Qualifications.04:53
cl3tUsegarff, I am learning some linux commands, but the guy I like to learn from is usually pretty busy and a ways away from me.  When he can teach me, I'm nowhere near a linux computer :(04:54
egarffcl3tUs: Hmm.... you're in a small town?04:54
egarffcl3tUs: seriously, order up the linux in a nutshell (or unix in a nutshell) books from o'reilly04:54
cl3tUsslaeya, I like IPv6 :D  I don't know anything abput TCP/IP protocols.  I am on CH 2.  Nobody have ever shown me any of this...ever.  I'm learning on my own :D04:54

danileigh79cl3tUs: lollo64it  no worries, brb smoke break04:55
egarffcl3tUs: I seriously read it front to back, even though it's mainly just commands... it's probably the best way I learned all the obscure crap.04:55
cl3tUsknowledge is too beautiful of a gift to keep to oneself or charge for.  It should be given and shared among brothers and friends.04:55
BestKeptSecretegarff, what did you read front to back?04:56
cl3tUsslaeya, Where do you do that?04:56
egarffcl3tUs: tldp.org is good too04:56

egarffBestKeptSecret: that's what the Linux in a nutshell is, basically just a long list of the man pages.04:56

cl3tUsBestKeptSecret, sometimes, I don't know how to search what I'm doing.04:57
BestKeptSecretcl3tus, i think man pages, as i have just found out this exact minute, are the best way to learn04:57
egarffcl3tUs: another thing to do is to go take the 'qualifying' tests for the redhat certs (they're free on redhats site) and take notes on things so you can google and learn them later.04:57
BestKeptSecretcl3tus, i think actually reading the full man page will give you what's needed to use what you're doing04:57

BestKeptSecretslaeya, what's a recovery partition?05:00
ayeceewjlafrance-desk: probably out of scope here too.05:00
slaeyaBestKeptSecret, your speaking windows I take it ?05:00
egarffcl3tUs: https://www.redhat.com/certification/rhce/objectives/05:00
BestKeptSecretslaeya, no not at all05:00
BestKeptSecretno recov partition in ubuntu?05:00
BestKeptSecretor *nix?05:00
egarffcl3tUs: there's a list of things to learn to do in linux. ;)05:01
wjlafrance-deskayecee, thanks. Can you recommend a channel? Working on a twitter client and I want to sniff my network data on a separate box just so it's out of the way. Probably too much work to be worth it.05:01
slaeya*nix questions are not my forte, I'm still learning.  Windows environment is where I believe I thrive05:01
Jordan_Ujrtayloriv: Is there a reason you need to know?05:01
cl3tUsegarff, I know :D  I don't even know where to start.  I think I'll get the Linux for dummies and read this LPI thing.05:01
BestKeptSecretslaeya, windows smindows05:01
cl3tUsI'll start with dummies.05:01
ayeceewjlafrance-desk: sorry, none come to mind.05:01
jrtaylorivJordan_U, Yes. I'd like to wipe out the recovery partition, but not break my Windows system05:01
slaeyaBestKeptSecret, yes I do understand hence the slow transition!05:01
egarffcl3tUs: I hope for much knowledge for you!05:01
BestKeptSecretslaeya, *nix just has a certain beauty to it...05:02
jrtaylorivAnd I was wondering why it was marked bootable, but neither of the other two were.05:02

RigadoogHi, i need help getting my linksys usb adapter to work in ubuntu05:02
cl3tUsBestKeptSecret, We got some new windows :D  Windows  USA talk about good windows...pushy salesmen.  The lady calls me like every other day to see if I got potential customers...05:02

wjlafrance-deskayecee, thanks anyhow :)05:02
cl3tUsegarff, I pray the same for you.  Many thanks.  I love coming into a room and meeting nice people.05:02
Jordan_Ujrtayloriv: "sudo os-propber" should give you a good idea what partitions contain what, but it's not perfect.05:02
slaeyajrtayloriv: you will notice there is probably a switch in BIOS where you can turn D2D or recovery partitions on etc which will be triggered by a function or F key.05:02
mickster04oscargotCLI: details please05:02
egarffcl3tUs: I tire of the 'nerd', RTFM mentality.05:02
RigadoogHi, i need help getting my linksys usb adapter to work in ubuntu05:03
ayeceewjlafrance-desk: I don't suppose you have a managed switch, eh? those can often be configured for port mirroring.05:03
BestKeptSecretegarff, lol... same05:03
BestKeptSecretcl3tus, read the flucking manual05:03
egarffcl3tUs: read the f'ing manual05:03
RigadoogHi, i need help getting my linksys usb adapter to work in ubuntu05:03

egarffcl3tUs, BestKeptSecret, Linux will never win if people act like jerks.05:04
slaeyaRigadoog: a model numberalways helps.   lsusb in terminal05:04
mickster04oscargotCLI: how did you install it, sounds like the cd image was not complete05:04
ayeceeRigadoog: you would get more help if you described the problem.05:04
cl3tUsrecently, he asked me, "Where is device manager?"05:04
BestKeptSecretegarff, you should relay that to all the other linux distros05:04

cl3tUsI politely walked him through it.  That's life.05:04
Rigadoogslaeya: it's a wusb54gc, the connectivity is complete shit and i was unable to install drivers with ndiswrapper05:04
egarffBestKeptSecret: Heh..05:04
oscargotCLImickster04: I had to use the live USB, then installed it regularly like  that05:05
cl3tUsBestKeptSecret, you are nothing compared to many people in this world.  Accept it.  I am in the same boat.  There's no reason for hostility when in the pursuit of knowledge.05:05
Rigadoogand it works fine in windows 7 right now05:05
egarffmickster04: you're right, sorry....05:05
cl3tUsegarff, You should go in a windows server room...omg.  Some real characters there...05:05
mickster04oscargotCLI: did you md5 the image first?05:05
BestKeptSecretcl3tus, what do you mean? accept what?05:05
BestKeptSecretand nothing compared to many people? what do you mean by that?05:05
egarffcl3tUs, BestKeptSecret - mickster04 is right, we're off-topic.05:05
BestKeptSecretI think I'm something compared to a greater amount05:06
cl3tUsBestKeptSecret, no matter how good you are at something, there is always someone better.  RTFM is not a nice thing to tell someone.05:06
ayeceeRigadoog: by "complete shit", do you mean it connects, but easily loses connectivity?05:06
oscargotCLImickster04: no I did not :(05:06
mickster04oscargotCLI: try that, you may find it was not complete05:06
Rigadoogit says it connects, but it cant open a webpage05:06
BestKeptSecretcl3tus, RTFM!05:06
egarffI'm stepping away anyway... take care all.05:06
Rigadoogor it will open like one webpage in 5 mins05:06
rypervenchemickster04: How does one md5 an image? I have yet to learn that.05:06
mickster04oscargotCLI: did you do the "try it without making changes" option?05:06
BestKeptSecretegarff, cya05:06
ubottuTo verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows05:06
rypervenchemickster04: Thankies.05:06
cl3tUsBestKeptSecret, I will, someeday.  Until then, I'll stick with the pros.  They wrote the FM.05:06
oscargotCLImickster04: doesn't that option just run it off the Live CD? The Gui worked fine in the Live CD05:07
slaeyaRigadoog, TBH I was going to point you in the direction of ndiswrapper05:07
oscargotCLImickster04: err liveUSB*05:07
Rigadoogwhat do i do with that05:07
ayeceeRigadoog: takes a long time, or literally 5 minutes?05:07
Rigadoogliterally 5 mins05:07
Rigadoogit fails to load pages a lot05:07
Rigadoogits unusuable05:07
mickster04oscargotCLI: yeah, if you tried that then i am unsure as to why it wouldn't install properly05:08
ayeceeRigadoog: was it working better previously, or is the first time trying it in linux?05:08
Rigadoogfirst time05:08
oscargotCLImickster04: Is there a command where I can update or active the video drivers? I am using intel integrated graphics05:08
Rigadoogi think its possible that i was doing ndiswrapper wrong/ using the wrong drivers05:08
slaeyaRigadoog, I take it you've had a look at this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=279447&page=2  ?05:08
Rigadoogi have not05:09
mickster04oscargotCLI: uhm not that i know of05:09
ayeceeRigadoog: I guess it's not available for testing right now, eh?05:09
mickster04oscargotCLI: try runnig" sudo service gdm restart"05:09

ayeceeRigadoog: that is, you're in windows right now, not in linux, so if I suggest some troubleshooting, you couldn't do it without rebooting.05:10
AegNuddelIs there any 3d landscape software for Ubuntu?05:10
oscargotCLImickster04: it says unknown instance, if I try to use startx it will start the GUI and then will give me a blank screen for a bit05:10
Rigadoogseems like these guys in the forum have it installed, ill give it a try and come back if it doesnt work05:10
Rigadooghave it figured out*05:10
oscargotCLImickster04: I'd have to REISUB out of it, and also, sometimes I end up with a GUI panel actually, but that just tells me that im in Low graphics mode, and it won't let me reconfigure or anything05:11
slaeyamickster04:  I'm about to install windows 7 on virtualbox.  What would you recommend assigning to windows 7 (ram and CPU wise)05:11

dylanjuranim trying to open my files for viewing to a mac on the same network. anyone know how i would go about this?05:11

dylanjuranthanks rob-p. how would i make them shown to finder?05:14

torchieI'm on a windows 7 machine with a 230GB windows NTFS partition and an HP recovery partition, and the installer only gives me the 11 GB otherwise.05:15
torchieHow do you resize an NTFS partition in the installer?05:15
dylanjuranslaeya : how would i set up my xubuntu to do that?05:15
torchieor would I have to go out of the installer?05:15
oscargotCLIegarff: It did not work T_T_T_T05:16
rypervenchetorchie: You can use GParted in from the liveCD05:16
torchiedo I open that from terminal?05:16
rob_pdylanjuran: If you install samba and configure it properly, they will be available via that protocol.  If you want more seamless integration with Mac, you could install netatalk and bonjour.  After that and some careful configuration, your Windows shares will show up in the Finder sidebar.05:16
samsamsupersamyou can resize the NTFS partition from windows, then format the unpartitioned space in the installer05:17
torchiebut then I have to go back into windows and I was enjoying myself so much :(05:17
slaeyatorchie: you should have a partition manager under advanced settings once you click install UBUNTU on the liveCD / liveUSB05:17
rypervenchetorchie: No, it's under "System" "Administration" I think.05:17
torchieah i see it05:17
torchiewow a lot has changed since I last tried on... 9.04 I believe?05:18
rypervenchetorchie: I believe you can drag it to the appropriate size, as well as type in the size you want.05:18
dylanjuranthanks rob_p05:18
mickster04slaeya: well then assign no more than 50%05:18
torchieand I was pleasantly surprised to find that the volume control works with this dv6700's silly capacitive media controls05:18
slaeyamickster04: I don't think they were referring to people that had ample ram ?05:19
rob_pdylanjuran: Actually, if I remember correctly, avahi when properly configured, gives you what bonjour does, at least in that regard. Anyway, good luck.  :)05:19
mickster04slaeya: well ubuntu will want a couple of Gb if you have 8 :p05:19
dylanjuranthanks rob_p: any possible links you might have to help?05:19
slaeyai have 16gb05:20
mickster04slaeya: try at 50% and see what happens to ubunutu05:20
oscargotCLImickster04: Is there a way to check the error logs when I try to start up the gui?05:20
mickster04's usage05:20

slaeyamickster04: ill let you know soon then05:20
j2coolsomeone please tell me why compiz will not activate05:20

Jordan_Uj2cool: #ubuntu+1 for 11.0405:23
ayeceej2cool: 11.04 is not supported here, but rather in #ubuntu+1. However, maybe it's because 11.04 uses the nouveau driver instead of nvidia's driver by default.05:23

noisewaterphdslaeya: I'm going to get lynched for saying this, but I think the free vmware player is better than virtualbox. I like my vm's to be fullscreened with dual monitors, and then I keep them in a seperate workspace. that way ctrl-1 gets me linux, ctrl-2 gets me win7 and so on. and try as i might, I can not get virtualbox to fullscreen on multiple monitors porperly, whereas on vmware it 'just works'06:00

rypervencheRigadoog: Hey, I'm looking at it now.06:15
rypervencheRigadoog: What version of Ubuntu are you using?06:16
Rigadoog4.10 i think06:16
ubottuTo find out what version of Ubuntu you have, type « lsb_release -a » in a !shell - To know the available version of a package, « apt-cache policy <package> »06:16
Rigadoogi dont think that works in win706:16

ruanoh ok06:17
slaeyaRigadoog: do you have a lan cable ?06:17

Rigadoogcuz i looked at the wireless file06:19
slaeyatar -zxvf filename06:19
Rigadoogand it said the tar.something file06:20

Rigadoogalso im not an idiot i know to usually extract things06:20
rypervencheRigadoog: So you extracted the tar.bz file then?06:20
slaeyatar -zxvf wusb54gc.tar.gz06:20

TheLifelessOneWell let me ask, is there a select-all command in Vi/vim?07:11
noisewaterphdTheLifelessOne: you uncommented the other 2 lines as well right?07:11
TheLifelessOneI'm fairly sure I did.07:11
TheLifelessOneWhat were all the lines?07:11
noisewaterphdTheLifelessOne: you can select all in vim with yyX, X being the total number of lines07:12
TheLifelessOneAh, I found out why. Small error in the config07:12
TheLifelessOneYep, that worked. Testing main issue now.07:13
leapy0yoI am actively using my external freeagent drive, but it constantly spins down via spin down timer... I dont know why... most I can do is raise the timer to a higher number... is there something that fucks this up?07:13

noisewaterphdTheLifelessOne: post your log07:14

noisewaterphdactually, probably not needed07:15
noisewaterphd550 is permissions right?07:15

TheLifelessOnenoisewaterphd: That's the error, yes.07:15
noisewaterphdTheLifelessOne: so now you know vsftpd is configured properly07:15
TheLifelessOnenoisewaterphd: If by that, you mean I can connect, yes, but that was never an issue.07:16
danileigh79leapy0yo: sorry don't know07:16
TheLifelessOneI just can't modify files.07:16
noisewaterphdTheLifelessOne: right, but it still would have never worked the way your config was07:16
KimmenTheLifelessOne: what was the original problem? Do you want anonymous login to your ftp?07:16
noisewaterphdTheLifelessOne: now your config is good, we will move on07:16

cache_surpluswhat was the point of kicking me? who is your superior? who gave you irc admin rights? that was uncalled for big time...07:33

noisewaterphdcache_surplus: his advice is sound07:35
aminmy ps is ubuntu 10.1007:35
KimmenTheLifelessOne: your scipt is owned by you but you have no permissions07:35
TheLifelessOneThe error does not seem to be bound to /public/ though. I just tested the script in /var/www, and it also does not work07:35
noisewaterphdcache_surplus: if you are running older or odd hardware it might just not work07:35
ikoniaamin: what operating system07:35
TheLifelessOneKimmen: Okay. How do I fix that?07:35
ikoniaamin: ahh ubuntu 10.10 - ok, what's the issue ?07:36

ikoniaamin: what software ?07:36

TheLifelessOneI've been trying to figure this out for a couple days now. :D07:41
noisewaterphdTheLifelessOne: this was all just to get you running. now that you are set, take a few minutes and dial back those permissions to only what you need. it really shouldnt be too much of an issue, but I would do it just as an extra precaution07:41
YankDownUnderchemicalvamp, Mate, you can run "jockey-gtk" and it will tell you what graphics driver (or whatever driver) you're using.07:41

cache_surplusikonia: i cant burn a cdrom at the moment,,, and this cust's laptop has bios locked on his lappy, not really interesting in diving into hardware, is there a way to boot to say this laptop over the network, esc during boot allows me to off the network... i have yet to do a network boot, typically usb or romdrives, is there a quick sudo apt-get install cmd i can use to fire up a network iso to boot from?07:43
cache_surplushope that wasnt too confusing...07:44
TheLifelessOneThanks for all the help! I'm going to try to get some sleep now. :D07:44
TheLifelessOneG'night #ubuntu!07:44
YankDownUndercache_surplus, Funny that - I generally blow out the client's BIOS if they don't unlock it for me...reckon that's part of my contract, however...ditto with any other passwords...else they get charged heaps more... :)07:45
cutoutregina: thanks07:45
cache_surplusalso,,, has anyone seen this screen before? the purple one with the little man, im curious where i could find into on it? future reference... im seaching google, cant see it yet07:45
ikoniacache_surplus: you can do a network boot, but you'll need a network server, with pxeboot and dhcp and an install source on, that's quite a big setup, so in realism, I'd say "no" contact the customer and ask him for his bios password, or get to a point where you can burn a CD07:45
cache_surplusYankDownUnder: thats true, but i dont want to break anything, ya know?07:45
cache_surplusikonia: trust me , he doesnt know it07:46
ikoniacache_surplus: then get to a position where you can burn a CD07:46
noisewaterphdcache_surplus: can you burn another dvd? if so perhaps try installing 10.04, and then upgrade to 10.10 over net07:46
YankDownUndercache_surplus, Yes, I get that - but if they expect support, then they're going to have to honour "contract of confidentiality" and give out passwords...but hey, that's me...07:46
cache_surplusikonia: ok, lets say i do burn a cdrom boot disk, and i get that error again,,, do you know where i can find a link to info on it?07:46
cache_surplusYankDownUnder: i agree, but he is a friend, and beta testor, its not all offical.07:47
ikoniacache_surplus: get the CD - and see if you get that error, that's the key thing07:47

cache_surplusmaybe i should just reset that bios lol... his kybrd is a little shaky though,, ya know? i dont want to break anything07:49
YankDownUndercache_surplus, Open the drive, very very VERY carefully use a cotton bud to wipe the lens gently - great if you have some isopropyl alcohol on the cotton bud...07:49
lwizardlnoisewaterphd, yeah i know that just wasn't sure about the dates. i thought i read on wikipedia they always released on the 28th but had to check agin07:49
cache_surplusYankDownUnder: ya? ok, thought sounds good,,, ill try that first, then see if i can wodim an iso, bbiab, thanks07:50
ikoniacache_surplus: it's worth using (if possible) supported burn tools07:51
et_Any pointers?07:52
noisewaterphdcache_surplus: ya, thats a fairly old notebook. I wouldn't be surprised if the 10.10 installer maybe just won't go. If all else fails, go back a few versions and do the net upgrades. Thats worked well for me when helping friends/family with older equipment. the 2100 isnt 'that' old, but it could be the case.07:52

YankDownUnderet_, Then you can create one.07:54

et_YankDownUnder: Oh, I think I'll try that..07:55
YankDownUnderet_, Should be EZ enough mate.07:55
et_noisewaterphd: I installed gdm on a server. Idea is to create a stripped down kiosk running only FF07:55
noisewaterphdsounds fun07:55
et_YankDownUnder: Thanks so much. Will do..07:55
ikoniaet_: the desktop build maybe better for that07:55
et_ikonia: Too heavy07:56
ikoniaet_: remove what you don't need07:56
et_ikonia: I wanted to start and build up from something minimal.07:56
ikoniaet_: yes, but the desktop build would be better suited07:56
et_ikonia: Already tried. Too much pain..07:56
noisewaterphdet_: have you looked at lubuntu07:56
mikeaIf your aim is to create a stripped down kiosk running only firefox then perhaps Ubuntu is not the best choice =p07:56
et_ikonia: yeah. I agree. But this was easier..07:57
ikoniaet_: you won't find it easier in the long run in my opinion07:57
aminGuys a few days ago my mouse broke and I just switch numlock off and my keypad section become the virtual mouse and now numlock off or on and also I tik off the the virtual mouse by keyboard on keyboard preference but I could not type any number by number lock anymore  what should i do?07:57
noisewaterphdet_: ya i can think of a few possibly better options, but i didnt want to spit them out on this channel07:57
et_noisewaterphd: Yes. I even tried something minimal with slim and all.. I am pretty novice and could get anything working =)07:57
ikoniaamin: yes the numbers keys not on on the number pad07:57
et_ikonia: Already done it. Only, I am trying to script the part where I enable autologin for a non-admin user07:58
ikoniaet_: if your new to this, you should really use the desktop build and just remove what you don't need, it will certainly make it easier07:58
noisewaterphdet_: suse has a website that lets you pick and choose only the exact features you need, then it compiles together a custom iso for you07:58
aminikonia: on or off I does not type07:58
et_ikonia: Problem is I dunno what file to look for .07:58
noisewaterphdet_: ill try to find the url for you, its very cool07:58
mikeahmm. I'm starting to think maybe apt-get install Amarok wasn't the best idea.07:58
ikoniaet_: you don't need to script that, just use the autologin gui to set it up07:58

ikoniaKartagis: the main issue appears to be permissions on the file system though07:59
et_ikonia: yea. I might have to do that again and again. For a few of my friends.07:59
Guest15501do anyone help me in installing gtalk in ubundu?08:00
et_ikonia: I was able to do that. gdmsetup.08:00
Guest15501can you explain me et_08:00
ikoniaet_: I didn't say do that08:00
et_noisewaterphd: Hey, thanks!08:00
noisewaterphdKartagis: chmod -R 777 /var/mail/vhosts/bilgisayarciniz.org   see if that works, if it does, dial back permissions accordingly08:00
ikoniaet_: system->administration->login window gui08:01
noisewaterphdet_: np, its a very cool tool. I hope ubuntu does something similar some day08:01
et_ikonia: Yes. That's gdmsetup tool.08:01
et_noisewaterphd: Me too..08:01
ikoniaet_: launch it from that manu08:01
et_ikonia: I was able to script something that'll completely lock the desktop down. That includes disabling the panel.08:02
ikoniaet_: you don't need to script this stuff08:02
ikoniaet_: the tools are much better and supported08:02
et_ikonia: No, I am doing a lot of other things too. Like gconf and stuff.08:02
=== samitheb1rber is now known as samitheberber
ikoniaet_: so ? that doesn't change what I've just said08:02
ikoniaet_: you've just said you're new at this, and it looks like your approaching it back to front08:03
ikoniaet_: you configure it, THEN lock it down, not lock it down and try to configure it08:03
et_ikonia: If you need to repeat everything, wouldn't it be better to have a post isntall script that can do everything automatically?08:03
et_ikonia: I understand.08:03
ikoniaet_: you don't need to repeat everything, that's the point. If you set it up using the correct tools, you won't need to repeat anything08:04
Kartagisnoisewaterphd: 777 worked but 777 is evil I hear08:04
et_ikonia: tools like?08:04
ikoniaKartagis: I suggest you work with one person as the guys in #postfix are also guiding you down a seperate path than noisewaterphd08:04
et_ikonia: by repeat I meant doing the same thing in 15 systems.08:04
ikoniaet_: depends08:04
noisewaterphdKartagis: yes in most situations. 777 was just to see if it would work, now look at your users and owner and dial back the permissions to only what you need08:04
ikoniaet_: yes, as I've said you won't need to repeat it08:04
aminikonia: on or off I does not type numbers /08:05
et_ikonia: I'm confused. How then without a script?08:05
ikoniaamin: reboot08:05
tobagoihave this line in my fstab: "/dev/scd0  /media/cdrom0  udf,iso9660  user,noauto,exec,utf8  0  0" but ubuntu doesn't mount the cd rom: "sudo mount /dev/scd0 --> mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0"08:05
ikoniaet_: for example use the policy kit to define the rules of what can/cannot be changed, the login window manager to setup auto login, the home directory config files for things such as firefox's default start page, etc08:05
noisewaterphdKartagis: however, i think that particular directory is fine, but I would check with the postfix guys because I dont use postfix and cant confidently comment on whether or not it is safe08:05
ikoniatobago: no cd in it08:06
et_ikonia: And if you want to do the same on another fresh installation?08:06
ikoniaet_: then either look at build images, or deployment tools08:06
Kartagisnoisewaterphd: 777 works08:07
ikoniaKartagis: you've said that08:07
ikoniaKartagis: now tighten it up - you're going to end up in a mess as you are doing two different things, one from noisewaterphd in here and one from random_guy in #postfix that are differnt08:07
noisewaterphdKartagis: i just saw ikonia comment, and yes, if you are working with the postfix folks i would certainly listen to what they have to say, as i stated im not a postfix user08:07
et_ikonia: You mean like bundling into an iso and use something like cobbler?08:07
ikoniaet_: that's one option, there are many depending on your preferences08:08
noisewaterphdKartagis: 777 was just a quick way to jump in and verify that it was a permissions issue08:08
et_ikonia: ok08:08
cache_surplusi finally got brasero to work right... i tried cdcreator earlier, and it didnt work. i tried multiple disks, rule out bad disks,, so, cdcreator gui didnt work but brasero does? can someone help me figure out why?08:09
cache_surplusis this a permissions thing?08:09
ikoniacache_surplus: what does the log say08:09
bluenemogood morning guys08:11
Kartagisokay, thanks for the starting point noisewaterphd and ikonia08:11
bluenemoi just upgraded my netbook from 10.04 to 10.10, but i dont like the new graphical user interface. how can i use the old one in maverick?08:11
noisewaterphdKartagis: anytime08:11

YankDownUnderbluenemo, Install Gnome & Metacity08:12
mati_ubuntu 10.10 ant ubundu 9.0.4 ant debian08:13
bluenemowill that get me the 10.04 netbook gui back?08:13
bluenemo@ YankDownUnder08:13
YankDownUnderbluenemo, You want the old "pre" netbook interface, or a proper Gnome interface?08:13
cache_surplusikonia: scratch that one, this one is more complete... http://pastebin.com/aUkaDdsX08:14
bluenemoi want the standard netbook interface from 10.04, one sec i'll link a picture08:14
noisewaterphdbluenemo: 10.10 uses unity instead of gnome I believe. I understand your resistance to the change, but you might want to give it longer to grow on you. I say that because moving forward, all of the new versions of ubuntu will be using unity by default.08:14
ikoniacache_surplus: what log is that (file name)08:14
bluenemoi want that one: http://www.macnews.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/ubuntu-netbook-10_04.jpeg08:14

stadoranyone here know how to pipe commands through umm other commands. im trying to set up a remote ubuntu install for a rails program and it hangs up with scripts you execute that require feedback... "input stream exhausted" was too generic?08:14
cache_surplusyou want dmesg?08:14
YankDownUnderbluenemo, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuNetbookEdition/ConvertGnomeSession08:14
ikoniacache_surplus: syslog, fair enough08:14
stadoris that too generic should i explain more.08:15
cache_surplusill get that08:15
ikoniacache_surplus: based on that message it looks like it doesn't like th meida08:15
ikoniacache_surplus: don't need dmesg - don't08:15
bluenemoits for a customer, which propably will find unity to complicated :)08:15
bluenemoso it sadly has to be the old one.. what name had the old one?08:15
noisewaterphdbluenemo: however, the beauty of linux is that you could just keep ditching unity and installing gnome if you really don't like unity08:15
cache_surplusikonia: actually the dmesg shows diff stdout08:15
ikoniacache_surplus: it will do, as it's a different information logger - don't need it08:15
cache_surplusikonia: http://pastebin.com/76wrWF1K08:16
ikoniacache_surplus: doesn't like the media08:16
cache_surplusikonia: i tried diff media, this one is burning now, but i had to use brasero08:16
ikoniacache_surplus: yes, but that tool doesn't like that media08:16
cache_surplusthat was my question... you mean cdcreator doesnt like the media? correct08:16
noisewaterphdcache_surplus: that drive either doesn't like those disks, or the drive could be dirty08:17
cache_surplusits funny, lots of people in the past in #ubuntu suggested i use cdreator gui vs brasero08:17
ikonianoisewaterphd: I'd go for the first one, bease on the I/O error08:17
ikoniacache_surplus: it's personal taste/choice08:17
noisewaterphdman i need to start looking to see if ive been beaten to it before i hit enter08:17

cache_surplusmileage may vary08:18
noisewaterphdNisstyre: I've had the exact opposite experience from yours. I suppose it just depends on your hardware08:19
reginaNisstyre: please dont say that...that may be your personal experience..i have had no issues with it08:19
NisstyreHow is it my "personal experience" ? Software bugs are subjective?08:19

foureight84i'm using the cr-48 and i'm trying to use keytouch to get the hotkeys working. so far the only thing that works is the volume, and brightnessdown works. when i use xev to see the keycode for F7 (brightnessdown), on keydown it reports one code but on keyup it reports another key. so this is why i can't assign the right function. does anyone know what is causing this?08:23
Nisstyreand it's a terribly designed program anyway, since it requires you to eject a CD after you blank it, put it back in, then reload the program08:23
reginaNisstyre: i understand your point...but we could put it as "brasero is horrendous on Nisstyre's hardware"08:24
cache_surplusi got it ikonia https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PXEInstallMultiDistro08:24

Nisstyreohsix, I'd have to run it in gdb08:24
=== david is now known as Guest40093
ohsixNisstyre: not really; you can do with reporting them first08:25
NisstyreI suppose I could08:25
ohsixNisstyre: you should08:25
Nisstyreohsix, how would I report a bug with no information about it?08:25
NisstyreI have to step through the debugger08:25
ohsixand as to ejecting the media then putting it in again, some drives cannot be told that new media is present, ejecting covers them all08:25
Nisstyrejust a pain that's all08:25
marsfligthHave you idea how to change default setting in 'catfish' search tool?08:25
patrykrhow to set it up?08:26
noisewaterphdcache_surplus: if you aren't actually going to use the multi distro features and such, a simple netboot is quicker and easier08:26
reginaNisstyre: no pain no gain;)08:26
noisewaterphdcache_surplus: however PXE is pretty sweet08:26
ohsixNisstyre: and there are even burners where it plainly says, or accepts the command to act as if new media is in there, but doesn't, so making it only ask for the drives that require it is problematic08:27
=== Sonne_ is now known as Sonne
ohsixNisstyre: as to getting information to figure out where the problem is, a program like brasero will have many verbosity options to describe all the operations it is doing08:27
Nisstyreohsix, that's okay, I'll have to get a blank cd to test though, because it only shows up when I burn or blank CDs08:28
ohsixNisstyre: what sort of job were you doing when it was doing what you describe?08:28
ohsixok, that's probably enough information by itself to report the problem08:28

PasswdMD5Hi ! How can I change the passwd of an user by providing the news MD5 hash such as "passwd user <hash-md5" ?08:30
ikoniaPasswdMD5: you don't08:31
ikoniaPasswdMD5: you use the passwd command or gui08:31
ohsixyou can also edit the shadow file directly, but that's just silly08:31
ohsixthey're salted too08:32
PasswdMD5Indeed it was me first idea to edit shadow but in terms of security...08:32
Nisstyreohsix, what does it use as a salt anyway?08:32
torchietrying natty beta08:32
ohsixso editing them without the original password to start with means you need to zero out the salt, which would render it useless08:32
torchiewhat happened to compiz wobble windows and super-tab cover flow like in 10.04?08:33

PasswdMD5ikonia: ok :[08:33
ohsixNisstyre: just random information, it's used to mix the original password; then included as the salt so it can be used in the future to check the encoded portion08:33
torchienow when you say "production..."08:33
ohsixtorchie: install compizconfig-settings-manager and turn them back on08:33
shomonum, oops, I just installed 10.10, then lamp (apache2 mysql-server php5 libapache2-mod-php5) and now I'm getting "you have chosen to open phtml"... what package or config might I be msising?08:34
ohsixtorchie: theres settings migration, but there isn't much that can really be migrated, so you need to set your preferences up again08:34
torchieoh well this is a fresh install08:34
Nisstyreohsix, to prevent precomputation attacks I assume08:34
ohsixahh, then use ccsm08:34
PasswdMD5i'm really sad ikonia  :[08:34
ohsixNisstyre: yep, since those bits are part of the information you need to generate the trials08:34
junaidnaseerhi everyone ... i need to create a BOOTABLE dvd (of something else) in suse linux ... any guidelines, please ??? thank you ... i have only one DVD-R ... so can't take chances ... :)08:35
ohsixPasswdMD5: why? you don't need to use the md5 directly, unless that's all you have; if you need something more "interesting" than what passwd provides you can use pam directly (requires programming knowledge)08:35
ohsixjunaidnaseer: this is the ubuntu channel ...08:36
ohsixjunaidnaseer: if you have a prepared iso that is already supposed to be bootable, burning it will suffice08:36
PasswdMD5I would have thought that, to change the passwd of an user, I could provide the new halted md5 hash directly (without edit shadow) ohsix08:36
torchiemaybe I should have went with 10.1008:36
brightsitesI have a dedicated server for hosting sites and I would like to run a mail server on it. Does anyone know a good and easy set up guide for this?08:37

I can't update anything with update manager because I get the message "Not all updates can be installed. run a partial upgrade... etc. " Also I tried sudo apt-get install -f and checked for broken packages using Synaptic (nothing shows up as broken)... The problem still persists. How can I fix this?08:37
marsfligthHow can I see my mac address?08:37
ohsixPasswdMD5: no you can't, since whats in shadow is prepared by a middle layer, and it needs raw inputs to change/check against the storage backend08:37
junaidnaseerohsix: thank you ...08:37
ohsixmarsfligth: it's in the output of ifconfig08:37
ikoniaBlackDalek: what package is the problem08:37
marsfligthohsix: thanks08:37
ikoniaBlackDalek: tons on https://help.ubuntu.com08:37
VerzorJunid: one recommendation I have heard for burning bootables is not to use high burning speeds.08:37
PasswdMD5ok ohsix because I update these passwords thanks to a file containing the new ones and I would think that storing the hash would be more secure than storing clear passwords !08:38
torchiethe insides of my windows seem to have disappeared!08:38
ikoniaPasswdMD5: not saving passwords to a file is secure,08:38
ohsixbrightsites: theres a ubuntu server handbook; but it's pretty much down to the manuals of the software you'd use, you can search for mailers in the packages or get suggestions for which to use elsewhere08:38
ikoniaPasswdMD5: using the tools to change/manage passwords is secure08:39
PasswdMD5Ok :] I'm gonna use "passwd" :]08:39
ohsixPasswdMD5: yea the problem is the list of them, you should probably find a way for pam to do the whole process for you, or find a way to get whoevers making list of passwords to talk to pam08:39
rypervencheDoes anyone know of any good remote assistance programs for Ubuntu aside from vino and teamviewer? vino isn't that great, and I would prefer something that is more native to Linux.08:40
hipodilskihi how can I bind my Xserver to listen on port 5900?08:40
ohsixrypervenche: most options are going to be like vino, what would you have it do differently?08:40
ikoniarypervenche: any X11 remote app, eg: vnc08:40
ohsixhipodilski: you just need to enable tcp connections, 5900 is the default; it's not a great idea, much smarter to use ssh forwarding08:41

chemicalvampor install the ati proprietary driver by command line08:41
noisewaterphdrypervenche: vnc is the way to go, I think teamviewer is probably one of the better ones, but just check out a bunch of the clients until you find one you like08:42
junaidnaseerVerzor: thank you ... :)08:42
Nisstyreohsix, faster though isn't it? I mean, wouldn't it be safe if you were on a secure LAN?08:43

iderikDoes anyone know where I can find the 'Copy' script? As in the right-click menu08:44
noisewaterphdrypervenche: teamviewer is a vnc client08:44
Nisstyreohsix, fair enough, I've never done it before so...08:44
ohsixiderik: that one isn't a script08:44
Nisstyrebut I have done x11 forwarding and it's nice :P08:45
iderikohsix: really? :O what is it08:45
ohsixiderik: part of nautilus08:45
noisewaterphdrypervenche: so you should be able to use it with vnc for the server, which is very simple to autosatart08:45
rypervenchenoisewaterphd: Just the server. I want to be able to start up my computer and then do the rest remotely. Which package is that? x11vnc or vnc4server?08:45

hipodilskiI need some way to capture my screen in a video08:46
iderikohsix: i cant find it in /gnome2/nautilus-scripts/, where should I look? =)08:46
ohsixiderik: this isn't probably something you'd manage without great effort, but you can use the icccm specs for file copy lists and stuff the clipboard with xclip08:46
noisewaterphdrypervenche: i think ubuntu has vnc server ready to go08:46
rypervenchenoisewaterphd: They do, it is vino, but it is very slow.08:46
ohsixhipodilski: try pithos, there are a lot of desktop recorders08:46
iderikohsix: i just want to look at the code of copy, because im creating a similar one08:47
reginaone thing that cripples vnc is the need for the public up and port forwarding...anything that can take care of that in linux?08:47
hipodilskiohsix: seems like it's not available as a deb for my debian08:47
noisewaterphdrypervenche: for spped i would look in to freenx08:47
iderikohsix: how it gets the selected filenames08:47
iderikohsix: i know there is a variable from nautilus, but i need some more info. thats why i need to take a look at copy script08:48
ohsixiderik: how it gets selected filenames in a nautilus script? or from the treeview natively or what08:48
ohsixiderik: ok, there are lots of scripts that work with files, any one of them should have something, there's also documentation08:48
iderikohsix: nautilus gives you $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS, but it contains the whole path and i only want the filename. so i want to take a look at copy's regexp/split function08:49
chemicalvampcan somebody walk me through connecting to a wired internet connection where DHCP is disabled please. Im stuck at preboot command line08:49
sacarlsonrypervenche: a cool thing I found if you can see both screens of each or multi screens is quicksynergy where you move your mouse to the screen of the computer you want to control08:49
noisewaterphdrypervenche: if you want to stick with vnc instead of NX then tightvnc has a reputation for speed08:49
ohsixiderik: ohsix@krang:~$ basename /dir/filename08:49
iderikohsix: the files are also seperated with a whitespace, so its pretty hard to split them up. since ppl use whitespaces in filenames too.08:50
ohsixchances are you want the whole path though, unless you stash the current directory somewhere08:50
ohsixthey're quoted, just make sure you quote them properly so you don't lose the quoting08:50

erUSULBartzy: is a LTS release10:49
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)10:49

Ymer-I could use some assistance with a problem of mine, if anyone could spare a moment; we are currently building a deb-package on a x64 machine (ubuntu) and converting it with chroot to x32, though when the package is installed and we try to run the installed .jar file, it tosses an error and prints out a bunch of jibberishlike chars.. any thought on what the problem is? (should be noted that if not packaging the .jar file with chroot, the .jar runs perfectly)13:14
coz_saurabh_,  well ,,  i dont have a good way to do that off the top of my head,, let someone else try that question,, I have never had to do this13:15

jiohdiManOwl, no, directly from firefox site... it will give you a compressed file which when uncompressed will allow ff4 to be started just by clicking the firefox file... it all stays within the folder13:35

raniere_gomesI need troubles in ubuntu 11.04... Can someone help me?13:39
Pumpkin-the FF3 and FF4 solution I would go for, but it might not be the best method, would be to uninstall firefox (and have no 4 PPA in sources), then get the source code for FF3 (via apt-get), build the sources for FF3 with an alternative --prefix in configure (say /usr/local/firefox3), and install that manually.13:39
waldircoz_: interesting!13:40
waldirI'lltry that :)13:40
Pumpkin-then add the PPA and install FF4 normally.13:40
coz_waldir,  it lacks nothing,, it will get to a point where you choose what you want installed  aka Desktop evironment etc,, to scroll use the arrow keys ,, to choose  use the SPLACE   bar13:40

BestKeptSecretYmer-, it worked :)13:41
waldircoz_: I've been getting acquainted with the cli for some time now :)13:41
coz_waldir,  just take you time with it  ,,, dont jump the gun making choices,, and one suggestion,, choose just one t hing in the software options like   Gnome Desktop  for example13:41
ManOwlrunning firefox-bin from the extracted firefox3 package causes the launch of firefox4 even after I've changed LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the firefox dir.13:41
coz_waldir, then entire thing will download from the internet so it will be completely up to date when you do first boot13:41
waldircoz_: I first started on ubuntu full time about an year ago... it's kinda inevitable :)13:42
coz_waldir,  yep understood13:42
ManOwlhad to kill ff4 first13:43
Ymer-BestKeptSecret, okey, then you can just erase my command and insert your own, it should all work then :)13:43
BestKeptSecretManOwl, ff4?13:43
waldircoz_: done, will reboot now :)13:44
ManOwlBestKeptSecret: i've installed ff4 using the ppa but I'm using a pre-release version of ff3 that I put in ~/opt13:44

BajKwhy does wayland ALWAYS fail at "no module named libxml2"?!13:45
ManOwlbecause there's no module named libxml2!13:46
ManOwlwhat programming language, python?13:46
PiciBajK: Likely because wayland isn't intended for production  use yet.13:46
Ymer-I could use some assistance with a problem of mine, if anyone could spare a moment; we are currently building a deb-package on a x64 machine (ubuntu) and converting it with chroot to x32, though when the package is installed and we try to run the installed .jar file, it tosses an error and prints out a bunch of jibberishlike chars.. any thought on what the problem is? (should be noted that if not packaging the .jar file with chroot, the .jar runs perfectly)13:46
ManOwl9/10 times the error message is indicative of the reason for failure :)13:46
BajKok my fault^^ libxml2-dev was not installed but EVERY script and EVERY tut I tested forgets this..13:46
BestKeptSecretYmer-, my commands still aren't working... I can tell they're running13:46
NeedSomeHelptensorpudding, I just installed those drivers you provided, but nothing happens. Still cant print.13:47
Ymer-BestKeptSecret, okey, how did you add ur commands?13:47
BestKeptSecretbut not in xorg? or in my gui... because I'll have tomboy open... but it will close13:47
PiciYmer-: #ubuntu-packaging is probably a better place to ask, although its not nearly as busy as here.13:47
BestKeptSecretwhen a minute passes by13:47
Ymer-Pici, alrighty mate, thanks13:47
waldircoz_: I had to come here and comment: the keyboard detection on the minimal cd is awesome!! why on earth does the graphical install use a more cumbersome, "select from a long list" method?13:48
Ymer-BestKeptSecret, not that you have to specify where the command (my case "echo") is located13:48
Ymer-BestKeptSecret, note*13:48
BestKeptSecretYmer-, * * * * * /usr/bin/tomboy13:48
coz_waldir,  not sure but since the minimal is  well,,, minimal.. it works faster for surer13:48
eamon|zzzBestKeptSecret: will that run once a minute?13:49
BestKeptSecreteamon|zzz, i really just want it to run upon startup13:49
waldircoz_: it was great because when i installed ubuntu yesterday on this laptop, i thought about how it could try to be smarter, like asking for the user to type a few keys to detect the keyboard layout... and now this does exactly that!!13:49
eamon|zzzBestKeptSecret: then you want anacron13:50
Ymer-BestKeptSecret, then you should probably put it in /etc/rc.local instead13:50
coz_waldir, very cool13:50
eamon|zzzanacron is for jobs that revolve around downtime. cron is for jobs revolving around uptime13:50
waldircoz_: and the funny thing is, it asked for about 5 keys, but after the first one it knew already :D13:51

shane4ubuntucoz_: is that a bug, because it is very odd that it is horizontal size set to 4 and number of desktops set to 1, and vertical 1, that is odd.14:01
coz_shane4ubuntu,  no ,, remember compiz is a single desktop regardless of how many viewports you enable   akd   horizonatl virtual size14:01
BajKwhy do I need to log out and back in to change the dpi settings of fonts?! I can change the font itself (and the size) like I want to but for dpi settings I need to restart...14:01

ProfessorDuckygrimlyhefty: "/etc/ssh/sshd_config" <- to set the port number14:49
CombatjuanFlameTai1: The only thing I could suggest is checking your bios and perhaps disabling usb as a boot device.  Perhaps the bios thinks that it has a boot sector but it really doesn't?14:49
Fearless13it can be a pb with your firewall14:49
ProfessorDuckygrimlyhefty: "netstat -antp" to see which ports are in use on your system14:49

farciarz84red2kic: are you talking about mouse or keyboard?14:50
CombatjuanFlameTai1: Could be that your bios is confused and angered by USB 3.0?  Maybe flash the bios with a new version?  Sorry.  I'm quite out of ideas.14:50

ruanpmo5: can it be saved as a jpg file?14:56
CombatjuanGuest72747: I'm still a bit unclear on the goal.  Perhaps you have a custom kernel that you compile yourself and it has some special extensions which help vlc with video decoding and you custom compile your vlc as well?  And you want it to be a one-step process?14:56
pmo5cheryl, if cup is install it should ask for a password when you try to open this web page

ubottuubuntu: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD15:15
