Jordan_Uhaffi: What is the output of "echo $prefix"?00:03
Jordan_UExtractBeliefs: Yes.00:03
rmxzI see that 'nice' can help an unimportant program keep the CPU available to more important processes,   and ionice can do similar for I/O scheduling;   is there similar for virtual memory?      For example, can I tell Ubuntu that it should be free to swap out much of a particular bloated non-time-critical process to avoid getting in the way of more important uses of that memory?00:03
ocouttsHas anyone been able to install Ubuntu on the latest gen mac minis? A co-worker and I have been having a super tough time.00:03
haffiJordan_U: (hd0,msdos1)/boot/grub00:03
rmxzLooks like /proc/sys/vm/swapiness can do that as a global setting for all processes --- but is there something similar where I can set a per-process swappiness00:04
Jordan_Uhaffi: What is the output of "ls $prefix/grub.cfg"?00:04
escottrmxz, you actually don't want that to happen. if the process is running the last thing you want it to do is have lots of page faults. nice it out, and it will run less and its pages will be later in the LRU and will get swapped00:05
haffiJordan_U: grub.fg (it's there)00:05
Gnearmxz: not really, swappiness is as good as it gets00:05
BluesKajescott, he may not hav an xorg,conf file unless he ran nvidia-xconf00:05
haffiJordan_U: And BTW there's a new version of the Boot info script results (I installed lzma) at: http://pastebin.com/LEp3sKv600:05
Jordan_Uhaffi: What happens if you run "configfile $prefix/grub.cfg"?00:05
schnufflermxz:   You can configure swappiness per cgroup:  http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/cgroups/cgroups.txt  http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/cgroups/memory.txt00:05

haseI don't understand why it says direct rendering: yes but I'm stuck at 640x480 could it be because i'm using an hdtv for the monitor00:07

escotthase, your CRT is not reporting EDID data (which describes the maximum height/width the monitor supports) and you are being dropped back to 640x480. you should be able to force a mode in your xorg.conf, the guis may be protesting in order to prevent you from breaking your monitor00:09

rmxz escott: "...nice it out, and it will run less and its pages will be later in the LRU and will get swapped"00:14
rmxzProblem is that on the 24-core system there's always CPU available so even the lowest priority processes seem to run full speed.00:14
escotthase, see if you can find a Monitor section in there, and it should have a "Mode" or "Modeline" you could use that as a template for your desired mode00:14

gonzaloHello, I installed Ruby (programming language interpreter) with: "sudo apt-get ruby". This installed Ruby 1.8.7, but I want 1.9.2. I did't find 1.9.2 in the synaptic package manager, so I downloaded the source and compiled. However, the Ruby my system has is still 1.8.7. In the folder I downloaded I execute "./ruby --version" and there it's 1.9.2. How do I replace the ruby I have installed...00:40

Guinness2702So, I have package x installed on 10.04 LTS Server, and it's client installed on 11.04 Desktop.  The versions of x are incompatible, and I want to A) upgrade the version of x on the server or B) downgrade the version on the desktop, without changing the versions of ubuntu.  Can I do this? How?01:08
gonzaloschnuffle: I removed many ruby packages with the synaptic package manager. Then, I installed (with SPM) the package "ruby1.9.1". Now I do "which ruby", which returns nothing. "which ruby1.9.1" returns "usr/bin/ruby1.9.1" why isn't it installing correctly?01:08
DK_2tophu: also, the only thing i use to play dvd's is VLC media player. never had any issues but i dont watch many movies or seasons. also did you install ubuntu restricted evtras?01:08
morgantpham - system -> preferences -> preffered applications01:08
HelloWorld321Yes.  I was annoyed by it at first, too.  But then I sorta decided to try the new one.  It's a bit of a hassle to get used to a new UI just because somebody else decided ... but it is good01:08
tophuprobably not01:09
Damian85yes maybe but my sister wanted to use it and just thought what is this. remove this fast :D01:09

DK_2Guinness2702: if you open vlc, with the icon for it, without media, and change the settings, then close vlc, they stay on those settings forever01:14
Guinness2702DK_2, Does that fix the problem?01:14
Guinness2702I don't have to change any settings, just open the config01:14
DK_2i havent played with the audio settings yet01:14
gonzaloschuffle: it did't work well. I did "sudo ln -s /usr/bin/ruby1.9.1 /usr/bin/ruby", which returned: "ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/bin/ruby': File exists". However, "which ruby" returned nothing...01:14

bazhangGuinness2702, you dont01:15
notyournamehelp me with my mousepad. it doesn't work01:15
DK_2Guinness2702: to test that out ill have ta play a media file for a while, so testing is gonna take a little while01:15
bazhangtophu, sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras01:15
schnufflegonzalo: first you have of course tell it that you want to manage alternatives of ruby: sudp update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/ruby ruby /usr/bin/ruby1.9.1 101:15
IdleOnenotyourname: you mean on a laptop?01:15
tophu@notyourname: buy a new one01:15
Kuwangermhalligan: Well, the hack solution is to just extract the config file manually and copy it to the right place. :/01:15
Jordan_Ugonzalo: What is the output of "ls -l /usr/bin/ruby"?01:15
bazhangnotyourname, thats not an ubuntu issue01:15
Guinness2702bazhang, So the only way I can upgrade the version of something on 10.04 is to do it manually?01:15
Loshkimhalligan: well, they *ought* to be idempotent. check all the "force" options in man dpkg. confmiss/confdef. If all else fails, you could edit the package out of /var/lib/dpkg/status and retry (make a backup of the file first)01:16
bazhangGuinness2702, upgrade what01:16
notyournameso what do i do01:16
DK_2tophu: do you know how to use synaptic?01:16
gonzaloJordan_U: "lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 2011-05-20 20:12 /usr/bin/ruby -> /usr/bin/1.9.1"01:16
schnufflegonzalo: then check: ls -l /usr/bin/ruby01:16
Kuwangermhalligan: It'd seem dpkg itself supports a --force-confmiss, but I don't know how to make dpkg reinstall a package.01:16
gonzaloschnuffle: doing the update alternatives now...01:16
Guinness2702bazhang, mythtv backend - my server is 10.04, but my desktop is 11.04 - the versions that come with them are incompatible - I don't want to upgrade the server, just to get the latest mythtv backend :(01:17
Jordan_Ugonzalo: And the output of "ls -l /usr/bin/1.9.1"?01:17
tophuI got it I had syn open on another desktop that's why my sudo apt-get install failed :-(01:17
bazhangGuinness2702, I'd ask in #ubuntu-mythtv honestly01:17
tophuthanks guys ^_^01:17
gonzaloschnuffle: "update-alternatives: --install needs <link> <name> <path> <priority>"01:17
Jordan_Ugonzalo: Wait... That should be /usr/bin/*ruby*1.9.101:17
schnufflegonzalo: wait, don't hurry. You should try to understand what you are doing otherwise you'll get stucked with a damaged system sooner or later01:17
gonzaloJordan_U: going...01:18
Guinness2702bazhang, I'll try there, but I was hoping to do cleanly with packages - i.e. it's not really a mythtv problem, but an ubuntu/package problem - i.e. I want to force 10.04 to use a 11.04 package :\01:18
Jordan_Ugonzalo: Run "sudo rm -i /usr/bin/ruby" then make the symbolic link properly.01:18
bazhangGuinness2702, thats unsupported and will break things.01:18
gonzaloJordan_U: "-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5460 2010-11-02 17:48 /usr/bin/ruby1.9.1"01:18
Kuwangermhalligan: Hmm.. Well, it'd seem as simple as dpkg --force-confmiss -i /var/cache/apt/archives/rsyslog-*01:18
KenBW2Is it possible to get my phone to transmit audio to my laptop over bluetooth?01:19

m_tadeuubuntu is unable to detect the cdrom from my laptop...what can I do to overcome this problem?01:19

gonzaloschnuffle: i was missing the "1" at the end (the priority, i guess). now "which ruby" returns "ruby 1.9.2p0"01:22
gem_catescott, there is no entry in fstab for the cd - and the rules for making one have changed in natty01:22
DK_2m_tadeu: your BIOS is reading from the harddrive before the cd-rom. at bootup press either "f2 - f10 - del" to enter bios and change and save settings"01:22
schnufflegonzalo: fine, and you could have done it without uninstalling the default version :). Next time you'll know01:23
escottgem_cat, generally you dont want an entry in fstab, leave it out and gnome-volume-manager should auto-mount the partition01:23
gonzaloschnuffle: yes, good to know. thanks a lot for your help!01:23

notyournameso how do i fix my mousepad on laptop01:30
gem_catescott, the ownership of cdrom in media is root root01:30
Loshkimhalligan: something like dpkg -i --force-depends <package>. Sorry I'm not handier with dpkg....01:30
mithridatesschnuffle: http://tinyurl.com/3gbnfjf this is the crash report01:30
m_tadeuescott: new advancement....on boot, the cdrom is there...as soon as I touch the eject button(which doesnt do anything),  it sudenly disapeers from /dev01:31
m_tadeuescott: before that, eject cdrom works fine01:31
escottgem_cat, i would remove the folder in /media, remove the entry from fstab and if that doesn't work try udisks --monitor-detail01:31
gem_catdo doubt the ownership in /dev matches the cdrom entry01:32
schnufflemithridates: have you installed the vlc plugin?01:32
mithridatesschnuffle: I'm not sure, but I guess yes. let me see01:32
escottm_tadeu, so `eject cdrom` works, but the eject button messes things up01:32
Loshkimorgan: I'm confused about which is client and which is server. Note you have 4 separate pieces of config to worry about: ssh_config and sshd_config on both client and server...01:32
m_tadeuescott: in deed01:32
escottLoshki, sshd is the server config01:32

escottWhisky_, what errors01:34
syockitescott, Whisky_ : but do you need to chmod for using wine on exe?01:34
m_tadeuwhat happened to /var/log/messages?01:34
sudokillwhen i tried 11.04 it disappeared01:34
Whisky_syockit: I wouldn't know about that. Sorry. Try copying the exe file to .wine directory in your home directory and then wine ~/.wine/FILE.exe~01:35
escottsyockit, you have to do that for bash scripts as well. you could call it by `wine program.exe`01:35
Loshkimhalligan: --reinstall is an apt-get flag, not dpkg...01:35
morganLoshki - you're right, I've been editing ssh_config for the server (pointless), just opened sshd_config, pretty sure I got it from here, cheers.01:36
Whisky_escott: I don't recall right now as I'm Dual booting with windows on the same PC. Is there anyway to run a restore or something? I'm sick of Ubuntu crashing on me everytime. That is why I moved from 11.04 back to 10.04 LTS hoping it'd be stabler01:36
mhalliganaptitude -o DPkg::Options="--force-confmiss" reinstall rsyslog eventually did it.01:36

syockitescott: I usually do not have to chmod +x on .sh file to sh it.01:36
mhalliganthanks for the help veryone, I'm going to go track down the dpkg maintainers and tattoo the word idempotence on their genitals.01:36
escottWhisky_, use your install cd/livecd01:37
Whisky_escott: Assuming I do boot with the livecd, what do I do? :(01:37
escottWhisky_, fix the errors you haven't described to us :)01:38
syockitKevin_Flynn: if you tried to open it from within opera, it will open using the default associated program, but I don't think wine is the first associated. maybe you use a file browser (like nautilus. open Places) to go to the folder (.opera is hidden, hit ctrl-H to show hidden files/folders) and right click LuxorSetup.exe and select open with Wine01:39
escottsyockit, i believe the natty version of wine may be configured to respect the executable flag for security reasons01:40
Kevin_FlynnI got it, thanx guys.  Permissions are the most anoying thing about Ubuntu.01:41

gem_catescott, very interesting - it sees it but there was never an entry in fstab - isnt that required01:48
escottgem_cat, no you DONT want an entry in fstab. the existence of an entry in fstab tells the userspace mounting daemon that you want to manage the mountpoint and NOT to automout it01:49
gem_catwell my fstab is as it was born - no entry01:49
escottgem_cat, i think your problem was the existence of a folder in /media with the name of the mountpoint it would have chosen, but with root ownership01:50
=== roaming is now known as INFURNO
m_tadeuescott: tail -f /var/log/messages gets me this http://pastebin.com/zbXpEAVa01:50
gem_catwill the automount make an entry or do I need to adjust the ownership01:50
escottgem_cat, it will make its own folder. i think the presence of that folder is confusing it01:51

nDuffIn Ubuntu 11.04, I've gone to "Keyboard Shortcuts" in the terminal and unchecked "Enable the menu shortcut key" and "Enable menu access keys".

KodecGuys : where Can I find Metasploit Channel ?02:10
coz_sw0rdfish,  there is an .xml file in that directory for it,, I meant xml02:11
sw0rdfishwell i'm new to *nix...but there is a tag with <duration></duration> for each pic02:11
coz_sw0rdfish,   in terminal  gksudo /usr/share/backgrounds/cosmos/background-1.xml02:12
coz_sw0rdfish,  that xml should have durations in it since it is the driving force of the cosmos images02:12
something_herewhy is it that i can connect to sshd externally when there is no iptables rule? I was under the impression it was a default deny any02:13
sw0rdfishare those durations in minutes or seconds02:13
coz_sw0rdfish,  mm I am going to guess seconds,, however I have not played with this for some time ,, I have never used the cosmos image changes02:14
coz_sw0rdfish,  although 1795  as minutes seems reeaal long :)02:14
sw0rdfishlol yeah02:15
sw0rdfishi'll edit that to 10 seconds :)02:15
sw0rdfishwhat does the gksudo do?02:15
coz_sw0rdfish,  it allows you to open a file as root user  to edit it,, especially .xml since if you try to just click to open it will be uneditable02:16

sammythe package was removed in natty, and I can't find a wireless kernel driver backported module package or a compat-wireless package for natty02:22
sammyand the wireless drivers included in the stock ubuntu kernel with natty also don't work well with my wireless card, same as with maverick. i'm out of ideas. at least it worked okay with the backported modules in maverick. i'm not really sure how those drivers didn't either get folded into natty or put into a new package for natty.02:23

edbianWakko10Warner, They are03:17
edbianWakko10Warner, Multiple processors (graphical or otherwise) are by definitely parallel.  They are used for super computers03:18
Jordan_Ugizmobay: That all sounds normal. In Ubuntu you need to hold shift during boot to see the grub menu and also in Ubuntu grub is configure to set a flag, recordfail=1, which is stored in /boot/grub/grubenv and is cleared on a successfull boot. If booting isn't successfull (like when you pull the plug before /etc/init.d/grub-common is run and clears the recordfail flag) then the timeout is disabled in the grub menu.03:18
piboytravisWakko10Warner: GPUs can be used for supercomputing, but there are only useful for certain typer of processing/data.03:18
syockitWakko10Warner: it's offtopic to talk about that in #ubuntu, you are welcome to discuss in #ubuntu-offtopic. by the way, GPU aren't meant for general purpose computing in the first place03:19
Wakko10WarnerI need to learn more about what type to see what I need more of.03:19

Guest8715 mah let me try to launch it07:21
MACscr|lappyok, my ubuntu 11 system is running like crap after trying out xubuntu and reverting back. Anyway, i think im just going to make an image of the system, format and install 11.04 from scratch. I am though not looking forward to resetting everything up, such as thunderbird, firefox, chromium, deluge, etc, and all of its custom settings that i have setup for it. Think I could possibly restore some of those configs from the user folder07:22

Pete_um i did not no i could go classic07:23
MACscr|lappyPete_: believe me, i hate unity as well07:23

dzupsuperkuh:  why not?07:38
superkuhOkay. Thank you.07:38
Jordan_Uusertom: That error message is not from grub2, which is what current versions of Ubuntu use, which means that you are (for whatever reason) not booting from the drive that grub was most recently installed to.07:38
Jordan_U!bootinfo | usertom07:38
ubottuusertom: To diagnose boot issues, you can use the Boot Info Script available from http://sourceforge.net/projects/bootinfoscript/ Run the script with !sudo and then look at RESULTS.txt (or !pastebin it for others to look at).07:38

bullgard4Jordan_U: The »packaging guide« does not answer the question which I have put or only in a very difficult accessible way. The »packaging guide« is written for MOTUs and similar people to compile a DEB program package. For example https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide/PackagingOverview starts with the headline "The changelog" which clearly is not in my scope.08:15
usertomJordan_U,  are you still there?08:16
Jordan_Uusertom: Yes.08:16
usertomhow bad is it?08:17
Jordan_Uusertom: Your BIOS is booting from /dev/sdc which contains an old and broken grub legacy install. If you change the boot order so that /dev/sda is first it should boot fine.08:18
usertomJordan_U, how would I do that?08:18
gaelfxbullgard4: perhaps you should restate your question and make the problem you're having clearer08:19
Jordan_Uusertom: It depends on your BIOS. When you boot you should see a message like "Press F8 for more options or F12 for a one time boot menu", where F8 and F12 could be any function key depending on your particular BIOS.08:20
bullgard4gaelfx: You are probably right. I will try to re-word.08:20

gartralgo8765432: a) i'm not gardar b) it should be in under lingtk09:19
gaelfxgartral: ok, is there any way to test that? It should be able to do 3Gbps, it's not an old drive09:19
ttiiccand when will I have to upgrade?09:19
theadminttiicc: There's no such Ubuntu version as 10.4.2, do you mean 10.04.2?09:20
Gnea!lts | ttiicc09:20
ubottuttiicc: LTS 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)09:20
ttiiccyes sorry I meant 10.04.209:20
gartralgaelfx: actually, the SATA link has NOTHING too do with the drive's actual throughput09:20
theadmin!lucid | ttiicc09:20
ubottuttiicc: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) was the twelfth release of Ubuntu. Download http://releases.ubuntu.com/10.04/ - Release Info: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/100409:20
theadminttiicc: Check those links.09:20
Jordan_U!bootinfo | linuxking09:21
ubottulinuxking: To diagnose boot issues, you can use the Boot Info Script available from http://sourceforge.net/projects/bootinfoscript/ Run the script with !sudo and then look at RESULTS.txt (or !pastebin it for others to look at).09:21
ttiiccok so I will be able to use it for another 3 years09:21
gaelfxgartral: ok, ok, but how to figure out what's limiting it?09:21
ttiiccthat's nice to know!09:21

theadminCLR-200: What is the problem, exactly? Also, please give the output of lspci|grep -i vga09:23
gaelfxgartral: right, but if the card or the dock is limiting the connection, then how can it accurately gauge throughput?09:23
CLR-200theadmin, i can't see milkytracker or other app in fullscreen09:23
CLR-200i got two black row at the margin of the screen09:23
gartralgaelfx: i'm not sure.. two things too check first are Drive's throughput, and rather or not your Computer's PCI bus/chipset/cpu can handle the load09:24

OrvaI have always wondered why ubuntu puts those minor version numbers for releases12:29

szalOrva: pretty self-explanatory12:30
Orvaszal: yeah, after you hear that "year and month" part12:31
szalDapper was 2 months late; it was the 1st LTS and there was, among other things, a big kernel oops around planned release time12:31

szalomichalek: to my knowledge that has nothing to do w/ the gfx driver since it only applies to the X server, and the bootsplash runs outside of X..  make sure you have "nomodeset" as a kernel option in /boot/grub/grub.cfg; the proprietary driver doesn't support KMS12:56

Dr_Willisnot to be confused with unity's 'dash'14:17
GauravButolahow do I know my which touchpad I am using. My friend has some issue regarding touchpad not working under 11.0414:17
ubottu/bin/sh links to the DASH shell in all releases since Ubuntu Edgy (6.10). Since DASH is not 100% compatible with the BASH shell, some scripts might break. You can make scripts execute using BASH by changing the first line of the script to « #! /bin/bash14:17
A_JActionParsnip, quick question. If I install ubuntu Netbook on a netbook, how is the support for those usb modems we get.. They mostly only come with windows software14:17
tomekhwhy apt-get does not remove it?: http://pastebin.com/ewAChpTN14:19
mrdebDr_Willis: is it better? i use sh to run scripts14:19
ActionParsnipA_J: The UI is moot, you may need to mess with usb-modeswitcher. I assume you mean 3G modem14:20
Dr_Willismrdeb:  if yoyu are using sh in ubuntu.. you are actually using 'dash'14:20
A_JActionParsnip, no 2g actally14:20

fracklecan I install ubuntu on my 1980s alarm clock?14:21
MonkeyDusttomekh: try apt-get purge14:21
ActionParsnipA_J: same difference, the modem will be seen as a USB storage for Windows users who can't run setup.exe, the software then switches the hardware  to the modem part. Ubuntu can already use the modem bit and does not and cannot use use stupid software so you just need to flip it14:21
compdocfrackle, you'll need a time machine to take you back to 198014:21

roastedWhat is it about webmin that makes it incompatible with Ubuntu? Why does Ubuntu say the package is of bad quality, yet the rest of the Linux world uses it without issue?15:47
IdleOne!webmin > roasted15:47
ubotturoasted, please see my private message15:47
roastedQuestion - how can I see the current status of my raid array, as in which drives are active, degraded, whether they are syncing, etc?15:47
iszakFree-man, let him do it if he chooses to, not harming anyone, if it doesn't notify them because of the suffix then that's his loss.15:47

roastedIdleOne, oh, Debian too??15:47
IdleOneroasted: yup15:47
compdocsome ppl like webmin, but I dont use it15:47
roastedIdleOne, I guess that would trickle down to crunchbang, mint, etc then too.15:47
GauravButola_How to know the my laptop's touchpad make. A friend has touchpad problem in natty.15:48
teroasted: I think it is a warning as much as anything else. webmin is a vulnernability issue.15:48
roastedIdleOne, I didn't realize that. kind of a bummer. I liked webmin when I last used it. Thanks.15:48
SkaperenIdleOne: so basically, no one knows how to do what I asked ... if it's even possible15:48
roastedte, oh really??15:48
roastedte, how so?15:48
rwwroasted: As the bot says, webmin doesn't deal well with Debian-style configuration files.15:48
Cheri703Last night my touchpad stopped working...when I am logged in to 10.10, it will not work at all, completely unresponsive. If I am on the login screen, it is fine, if I log into 11.04, it is fine. I don't think I changed anything that would cause it to disable itself, but...it doesn't work (and I need to use 10.10 primarily, so "just use 11.04" isn't helpful). Any thoughts?15:49
roastedrww, I see. I was just trying to understand how it didn't play nice. If I were a webmin dev I'd try to make it universal. *shrug*15:49
IdleOneSkaperen: it isn't possible really, you can pin packages to stay at current installed version but you can't upgrade only packagexy for example15:49
roastedAnyway, thanks for your insight IdleOne rww te15:49
roastedBut does anybody know how I can check the status of my raid array in ubuntu? Software raid, taht is (syncing, degraded, active drives, etc)15:49
rwwIdleOne: sure it is15:49
mrdebCheri703: sounds likea feature designed to makey ou upgrade15:49
rwwSkaperen: sudo apt-get install packagename will upgrade instead of installing if the package is already installed.15:49
IdleOnerww: it is?15:49
SkaperenIdleOne: pinning every one of the packages in the system, doing selected upgrades, then unpinning every package ... does that sound like what it takes?15:49
teroasted: Some use it temporarily and then uninstall it, for security purposes.  But it is not necessary and not good to be used on ubuntu systems.15:50
Guest12017@iszak i read iptables and i don't know how it relates to ping attacks through proxies15:50
Cheri703mrdeb: yeah probably15:50
b44How to make the "repeat delay" of a key shorter ???15:50
Skaperenrww: it also upgrades all the dependent packages, too ... including lots of system stuff15:50
IdleOnerww: I did not know apt-get install worked that way. thanks for the info :)15:50
Cheri703I just don't know why the touchpad would work FINE on the login screen (for 10.10) and then quit as soon as it's logged in15:50
iszakGuest12017, it'll allow you to block their IP's, I can't remember if it supports a range.15:50
iszakGuest11276, that said you could get a list of known proxies and block them.15:51
rwwSkaperen: Ah. No, there is no supported way to break dependency resolution horribly.15:51
iszakGuest12017, ** too many guests15:51
kweebshow a you ?15:51
Guest12017ok i will use name, brb15:51

nclxI just did an apt-get dist-upgrade to natty.  Now when I reboot and login to gdm, it loads the unity desktop and the UI becomes unresponsive.  I'm using the nvidia driver.  I can drop to console, what should I try to fix it?15:51
b44How to make the "repeat delay" of a key shorter ???15:52
Skaperenrww: lots and lots of packages don't need specific versions of other packages ... they can work with a wide range of versions ... but the problem is, if it is dependent, it upgrades the dependent to whatever the latest version is, even if the old version is fully usable15:52
mrdebb44: keyboard option15:52
b44mrdeb: how to enter that by terminal ?15:52
rwwSkaperen: Are you trying to mix packages from different versions of Ubuntu?15:53
