dliAlanJCastonguay_, what's your cpu?00:21
Dr_WillisAlanJCastonguay_,  could be its not a feature in the pae kernel. How much ram you got?00:21
AlanJCastonguay_dli: 2 Intel Xeon 2.8; do you need the cpuid stuffs?00:22
dliAlanJCastonguay_, no, I just wonder whether xeon support cpufreq00:22
AlanJCastonguay_dli: Only 1GB stuffed. I don't know why it decided to use PAE.00:22
ActionParsnipsaruji: try:  sudo nvidia-xconfig    then reboot00:23
sarujiActionParsnip, ok thanks00:23
dliAlanJCastonguay_, I think you can specific which kernel package to use: apt-cache search linux-image00:23
psusiAlanJCastonguay_, the only difference between server and desktop is what packages come installed... mostly gui vs servers00:24
AlanJCastonguay_psusi: Same kernel image, though?00:25
el_bbso I am using the 11.04 alternate amd64 cd because i don't want X to be installed automatically. And the Installer just arrives at "Select and Install Software" and doesn't let me select anything?00:25
dlipsusi, his hardware is server also00:25
Dr_Willispae kernel - is normally for 32bit systems with more then 4gb of ram.00:25
ubottuTo use more than ~3.2GB RAM on a 32bit system you can install the PAE-enabled kernel. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE for more info00:25
psusiAlanJCastonguay_, yea00:26
dliAlanJCastonguay_, I guess your xeon doesn't support cpufreq, after all, you paid for server speed, no need to save on electricity00:26
AlanJCastonguay_dli: Booo. I was actually hoping to just make it a little /quieter/ while sitting next to it for a few months. No need for this much CPU speed at the moment.00:27
Dr_Willisa quick google for xenon support cpufreq has a few interesting hits...00:27

hammoommahcopy *.* lol00:47
Dulakhammoommah: that is more complicated than it seems.  The easiest is to install fresh on the new drive, then copy over you /home dir from the old drive to the new one.00:48
szalDulak: you're slow :P00:49
Dulakszal: yup00:49
ActionParsnipI'd use rsync00:49

hammoommaheparted cant drive copy?00:51
Dulakyou said easiest, not fastest00:51
pauliedoes anyone know how to sync FF with google nexus?00:52
Dulakdd would be the fastest but you have to do some stuff to grow the partitions to match the new sizes you'd want on the new drive00:52
hammoommahi dont want to fresh install as i need all apps downloaded again :( so i'll try using rsync............ hello google00:52
histohammoommah: dd if=/dev/sdx(of old drive) of=/dev/sdx(new hard drive)00:52
fishscenepaulie: You need Firefox on the Nexus.00:52
histohammoommah: if the new drive is bigger you'll want to use rsync00:53
CharybdisI'd suggest dcfldd over dd, it will show you your progress.00:53
fishsceneclonezilla automatically grows the drive if the new drive is  bigger.00:53
hammoommahthanks @histo00:53
Dulakhammoommah: ok, hit me up when you screw it up and you are installing from scratch anyways.  G'luck.00:53
histohammoommah: boot to a live cd partition the new drive. then rsync the old drives conetents to the new ones00:53
hammoommahgood idea00:53

allowoverridevivian: nevermind, thought you ment me01:26
allowoverridehisto: where did you find that info? how do you know? site your source ;)01:27
allowoverridejust to let you know, im not a noob, however, this bluetooth issue didnt exist prior to upgrading, i just noticed yesterday when i wanted to transfer some files via obex01:28
vivianActionParsnip: do I add it at the end of the file?01:28
cmyersI am running natty, installed ratpoison, only to see that when I run a terminal, it runs GNOME TERMINAL.  wtf?  Does anyone know how to change this?01:28
allowoverridei have a dell, bout 2 yrs old, the bluetooth light is not on, which means, the kernel is most likely the issue.01:28
allowoverridesome mod, maybe hcisomething,,01:28
cmyersI strings'd the binary, "gnome" isn't in it anywhere01:28
cmyersand the package contains no obvious rc file01:28

allowoverrideeither help or shut up01:31
bazhangallowoverride, follow the channel guidelines01:31
histoallowoverride: actually I believe bluetooth is now handled by udev. So you may need to do it a different way01:32
aeioufor a keyless ssh login, i want to add my .pub key to the remotes autorized_hosts right?01:32
histoallowoverride: please check this out see if it helps specifically the bluetoothd -u parts01:32
odixtheir wouldnt be any issues cloning a drive using dd to a hybrid drive correCt/01:33

allowoverridehisto: i only have bluetooth , not bluez when i tab complete service.. start01:33
odixhow is that bad ?01:33
aeiouhisto, ah nice!01:34
allowoverridehisto: opps i missed that... ill check01:34
histoallowoverride: yes as I said bluetooth is now part of udev so check that link01:34
allowoverridewhat link?01:34
histoallowoverride: I was thinking of the old way I haven't used bluetooth in ages.01:34
histoallowoverride: http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,77723.0.html01:34
histoaeiou: yeah nifty little script01:34
allowoverridei got distracted, and didnt see a link, paste link again? i dont see it01:34
vivianActionParsnip: hi, I'm back. I added that line at the end of the file (I don't know if the location matters) and the sound is still squeaking :(01:34
histoallowoverride: http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,77723.0.html01:35
vivianActionParsnip: is there any other tweaking you could think about?01:35
ActionParsnipvivian: you'll need things to add to that file to make it good, i suggest you remove the added line as it isn't benefitting you01:35
odixhisto: i can't get it to load01:35
odixhisto, the operating system isnt even viewable it seems01:35
ActionParsnipvivian: look for your laptop model with regards to alsa-base.conf   you may find code to add like the one I gave you01:36
allowoverridehisto: service bluez start bluez: unrecognized service01:36
allowoverridehisto: bluez is already the newest version.01:36
histoodix: I would confirm that the data was actually copied and you didn't reverse the dd command01:36
odixit is copied..01:36
histoallowoverride: keep reading on that page as they sugest bluetoothd -u01:36
vivianActionParsnip: in the forums?01:36
odixi dunno...its weird01:36

ChipDSnowHey all.  I'm looking to write a little script that will allow me to run a program under a different directory.  Any pointers on where I can read up on scripting under Ubuntu?01:37
histoallowoverride: if that doesn't work I would search the forums. I'm not that up to date with bluetooth01:37
ActionParsnipvivian: the web at large, even for different distros. alsa is alsa in any distro01:37
ChipDSnow<-- Noob, btw.01:37
allowoverridehisto: ok, blueman is installed as well01:37
vivianActionParsnip: got it, thanks for helping :)01:37
allowoverrideoh ok,,, histo thanks anyway,,, anyone else feel free to jump in with my bluetooth issue01:37
ohzieHey everyone. Has anyone noticed weirdness with the BM4312 chipset in ubuntu? My wireless connects momentarily, and then dies, and the password stops working.01:38
ActionParsnipallowoverride: if you run: bluetooth  do you get an icon in the system tray?01:38
ActionParsnipohzie: when it drops. Run:  dmesg | tail     it may give clues01:38
histo!bluetooth | allowoverride01:38
ubottuallowoverride: For instructions on how to set up bluetooth, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BluetoothSetup01:38
ohzieActionParsnip: Thank you! I will try this! =]01:39
allowoverridehisto: been there....01:39
ActionParsnipChipDSnow: do you mean run a command and have it manipulate files in a different directory? your question seems muddled01:39
allowoverrideim gonna try bluetoothd -u01:39
ActionParsnipohzie: common causes of that sort of thing are busy wireless channel or ipv6 causing issues01:39
allowoverridehisto: ok, that got sudo service bluetooth status to show, bluetooth is running,,,ill try blueman now01:40
ChipDSnowI've discovered the joys of Nethack, and I want to drop to command line, type in one command, and have it run.01:40
ohzieActionParsnip: I'm not using ipv6(that I'm aware of) and it works fine on the HP laptop and the Asus laptop.01:40
ohzieActionParsnip: I'm suspecting the chipset is weird because I've just heard that sometimes the bm43xx stuff has been weird in linux.01:40
allowoverridehisto: ok, blueman starts, nothing is listed, and the light on dell laptop is still off01:41
ohzieIt is perfectly possible that I am incorrect.01:41
allowoverridei have the service to start, but not with -u per update-rc.d bluetooth enable01:41
ActionParsnipohzie: i'd disable ipv6 using boot option: ipv6.disable=1   it may help01:41
ohzieActionParsnip: Do I put that in my kernel line? In grub?01:41
ohzieor lilo01:41
ohzieit's grub now right?01:41
wabznasmohzie: check first with ip a | grep inet601:42
ohziewabznasm: Yessir I have that turned on.01:42
wabznasmohzie: worth turning off - can do it by boot as ActionParsnip said but also possible to do it another way that I did 2 days ago and now cant find...01:42
ohziewabznasm: Where would I put that boot option?01:43
TraspHello, I'm trying to set up a lightweight system without gnome or kde or anything but I can't get into the "expert install" when trying to boot form a USB-drive with both usb-creator and unetbootin. I have no cd-drive and I don't know if the mobo has support for pxe (it should have but I should also be able to do it from my usb-stick ;p)01:43
Traspany ideas?01:43
wabznasmohzie: I let you foloow ActionParsnip advice on that one - I don't want to override what he is saying01:44
wabznasmohzie: just thought I'd mention the check for ipv6 being active first in case you didn't have to disable01:44
histoTrasp: use the alternate iso and install a command line system01:44
ohziewabznasm: No, I intend to use what he said "disable ipv6 using boot option ipv6.disable=1" I'm just asking where I would put that option.01:44
bazhangTrasp, or anything? just a system without X?01:44
ActionParsnipohzie: yes in the quotes with: quiet splash01:45

ohzieActionParsnip: ty!01:45
ActionParsnipTrasp: oI recommend LXDE01:45
histoTrasp: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/LowMemorySystems01:45
Traspbaxhang: Well, I'll have a openssh-server installed from the beginning and then throw in fluxbox01:45
ActionParsnipohzie: you will need to run:  sudo update-grub   to apply the setting01:45
histoallowoverride: I have no idea. Perhaps the forums?01:45
ActionParsnipTrasp: fluxbox is light too :)01:46
TraspActionParsnip, I'm using that one on my laptops actually, sweet, but I just need X to run an application on a hard working server so...01:46
jimisrvroxFriGiN: Found the firmware update for it. Windows recognizes that the usb is plugged in. However it does not show up in the devices and says that Windows could not recognize it and cant install drivers..but it seems to be that it should work being that it recognized that it was plugged in.01:46
Trasphisto, Thanks!01:46
ohzieActionParsnip: I was about to put it in the grub.cfg01:46
bazhangTrasp, you may wish to try lxde then as ActionParsnip recommends01:46
Traspwill try the alternate cd01:46
ohzieam I doing it wrong?01:46
histobazhang: he didn't want lxde01:46
allowoverridehisto: there are 1400 plus linux users in here, someone will be able to help out. ;) thanks for trying, also, i think the -u setting doesnt apply since udev handles it now, which means i prolly need to update the rc.X scripts... sighs...01:46
wabznasmohzie: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-disable-ipv6-in-ubuntu.html01:47
Traspbazhang, As mentioned, I allready do use it on a couple of my systems :)01:47
ActionParsnipohzie: no, put it in /etc/default/grub01:47
histoallowoverride: I would try reinstalling all the blue* stuff perhaps something got derped during the upgrade01:47
bazhanghisto, he said gnome or kde01:47
ActionParsnipohzie: you NEVER edit grub.cfg01:47
* ohzie shamefaced.01:47
histobazhang: he just wants plain X01:48
histobazhang: lxde is far from that01:48
allowoverridehisto: k01:48
bazhanghisto, as is fluxbox01:48
allowoverridecould you repaste my pastebin to me01:48
allowoverridei rebooted01:48
histobazhang: I didn't suggest fluxbox I pointed out that he could do a command line install. Then install X or whatever he wants01:48
TraspWell then, what should I use to get a minimal x-system then?01:49
bazhangTrasp, alternate cd or minimal cd01:49
TraspI'm not new to *nix but I don't use it too much either01:49
bazhang!minimal | Trasp01:49
ubottuTrasp: 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/MinimalCD01:49
ohzieTrasp: I'd recommend installing a server image. :|01:49
histoallowoverride: http://pastebin.com/sYEcKc3R01:49
allowoverridethanks histo, u cool ;)01:50
ohzieTrasp: and then installing from there01:50
TraspNow i just asked what I should use to get "plain X" as you argued about ;p01:50
th0rTrasp: a 'minimal' x-system will have to include some kind of window manager. LXDE, XFCE, fluxbox, just a few of the lighter ones01:50
allowoverridehisto: the 2nd paste bin, thanks, thats the first one01:50
allowoverridehisto:  they diff, 2nd has more info01:50

madsailorI'm dual booting ubuntu and win7.  If I mount the windows partition under ubuntu and delete some files will windows know that those files have been deleted when it boots next time, or will the OS not recognize that the files were deleted and still reserve space on disk for them02:08
bazhangmadsailor, delete them from where, what files02:08

bazhangmadsailor, bad idea then. for the exact ramifications, try ##windows02:10
madsailorrad_sci_guy, thanks...so your disk space from the deleted files is recognized as being free when you boot back into windows02:10
leeeroooy_jmadsailor: aslong as you dont delete system files it should be fine02:11
madsailorleeeroooy_j, nope...just random pictures02:11

Mark_bensohi everyone, i hope such a question belongs here, i own an internet point and recently users have been complaining because my computers dont have flash and dont "open" some websites (i blocked them lol) one of the most required was megavideo, i actually blocked such websites and flash due to security concerns (although linux is not windows flash has its exploits that may target different OS'es and cause nastities), could anyone tell me if enabling f02:23
Mark_bensolash would be safe? and also, should i allow megavideo (this is the off topic question, again sorry if it doesnt belong here)?  you may want to know that most users use guest session and some limited account with ONLY "administrate system" not checked (so all other permissions are checked) and they all have firefox's default apparmor profile02:23
rrgrzcoolcan anyone provide their expertise with installing swftools on ubuntu?02:24
magn3tsMark_benso, IMO, you can enable flash.02:24
magn3tsMark_benso, if Flash is being used as an exploit... it would be through a megavideo video.02:24
OsmodivsHello. What command do I use to know how many files do I have in one folder? like, I want to know how many fonts do I have in /usr/share/fonts/funfonts I know I have to use the find command, but whatś next?02:25
bazhangMark_benso, are you using ubuntu?02:25
magn3tsMark_benso, it will be through some SWF embedded somewhere inconspicuous. Better would be to use Chrome (Better plugin sandboxing) and have click-to-enable, so users will only use Flash when they explicitly need it.02:25
ActionParsnipMark_benso: flash should be fine02:25
Mark_bensomagn3ts: so you say yes to flash but no to megavideo?02:25
Mark_bensobazhang: yes 11.04 if it matters02:25
magn3tsMark_benso, I'm saying Chrome + Click-to-enable. I don't know why you're worried about megavideo any more than any other site.02:25
Mark_bensoActionParsnip: thank you very much, what about megavideo though? could i trust it?02:25
bazhangMark_benso, using noscript and flashblock as well?02:25
ActionParsnipMark_benso: never used it02:25
magn3tsWhy is megavideo any less trustworthy than any other flash site Mark_benso02:25
Mark_bensobazhang: adblock plus + noscript, but in order to watch the vids they d have (i'd have in this case) to allow megavideo.com02:26

magn3tsMark_benso, Didn't mean from a legal perspective.02:27
clipse`Osmodivs i don't know. im going to upgrade02:27
linux_is_my_herohow do i permanently disable nomodeset in 10.10?02:27
magn3tsMark_benso, dude, stop worrying about megavideo. It's irrelevant, completely.02:27
Osmodivsclipse`: About time02:28
allowoverridehisto: i removed all i could minus gnome-desktop which is dep'd to bluez*02:28
ActionParsniplinux_is_my_hero: add it in the quotes with: quiet splash  in /etc/default/grub   then run: sudo update-group02:28
Mark_bensomagn3ts: then if by "time wasters" you mean stuff that makes them sit for long time i should be happy with it since they pay for it lol02:28
bazhanglinux_is_my_hero, remove it from bootoptions?02:28
histoallowoverride: yeah now reinstall them and see if the problem persists02:28
magn3tsMark_benso, oh, right on then.02:28
allowoverridehisto: thats the plan lol bbiab02:28
magn3tsMark_benso, if this is an internet cafe thing, there are way better ways to do this.02:28
magn3tslike, way,way,way better ways.02:28
histoallowoverride: bbiab?02:28
allowoverridehisto: should i do a reboot?02:28
ActionParsnipclipse`: Lucid desktop support dies at the same time as Natty desktop does. i'd just wait :)02:28
Mark_bensomagn3ts: like?02:29
mrdebthanks bazang the xrandr is good02:29
histoallowoverride: I would after reinstalling just to make sure udev doesn't throw a fit02:29
magn3tsMark_benso, thin clients? a persistent boot with volatile partition that is wiped on every boot, a tempfs in memory, etc.02:29
linux_is_my_heroactionparsnip: it disabled it temporarily for install, but as soon as i restart its going to undo that. so what you're saying is i should do what you said after i install but before i reboot, and it should permanently fix it?02:29
magn3tsMark_benso, then you can just let users do whatever they want.02:29
billy2007does anyone know where i can get ogg. files to use in frets on fire02:29
magn3tsMark_benso, and it's all abandoned upon shutdown02:29
ActionParsniplinux_is_my_hero: adding it in that file will add it to all kernels and subsequent kernels, it will be used automagically02:29
Mark_bensomagn3ts: some users want "permanent" accounts, and i think setting it up with thin clients would have a cost02:30
magn3tsbilly2007, convert to them? They're just an audio file like wav, mp3, etc.02:30
magn3tsMark_benso, um, there'd be some cost if you already have the machines, sure. Otherwise it could be much cheaper potentially. But if they want persistent accounts... is that for data storage or what?02:30
allowoverridehisto: hmmm lets see what bbiab could possibly mean,,, well brb is be right back, so maybe bb = be back, and i = in and a = a, and hmmm lets see, m, could mean min? so bbiab = be back in a min... not to mention over the past 20 yrs i have coined many acronyms from in chat boxes around the world, and finally i prefaced it with a statement, that would imply i would be right back... does that help?02:30
allowoverridei should cut and paste that to gedit for future use... ;)02:30
ActionParsnipclipse`: user may as well keep Lucid, the support for both ends at the same time02:30
magn3tsMark_benso, it could still apply, they have a persistent home directory. That'd work fine, especially if they can't install software via root.02:30
billy2007magn3ts, but then id have to configure the song myself to work in the game02:31
Phr3d13ok, i'm upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 and decided to hit d to view diffs... how do i get back to the upgrade process?02:31
magn3tsbilly2007, I see, I misunderstood. I'd Google, I doubt you're going to get much traction here.02:31
Mark_bensomagn3ts: i already have the machines (been using them with ubuntu for 3 years now lol) and i cant tell (i dont know) what they need storage for besides bookmarks and preferences02:31
billy2007magn3ts, thats my problem ive searched all over google but i cant find anyfiles02:32
ActionParsnipPhr3d13: press Q02:32
allowoverridenote - #bluez-users are braindead...02:32
Mark_bensobazhang: what did you mean by saying that megavideo doesnt make flash more insecure? i dont get it perhaps its my english02:32
magn3tsMark_benso, lol, I think to get the best result, you might want to hire someone or detail the use-case scenarios and solicit opinion. There's a lot of different ways to do this effectively depending on exactly what you're trying to do and allow your users to do.02:32
Phr3d13ActionParsnip, Thank you!02:33
magn3tsMark_benso, Flash is flash. Megavideo does not affect how safe it is. At all.02:33
ActionParsnipPhr3d13: np man02:33
Phr3d13ActionParsnip, i think that should be stated somewhere in the upgrader02:33
Mark_bensomagn3ts: so you say that whatever they go watch even if its some bestiality they wont mess up my machine?02:33
linux_is_my_heroactionparsnip: thanks :-) after its installed im definately gunna try that :-)02:33
magn3tsMark_benso, how is the content of a video going to affect the safeness of your machine?02:34
godofmischiefwow @ Mark_benso02:34
magn3tsMark_benso, more importantly, they're not going to find beastiality on megavideo.02:34
allowoverridehisto: ok, starting from the beginning, i have installed bluez, i did a sudo service bluetooth start, no error, but status says - bluetooth not running02:34
Mark_bensogodofmischief: what?02:34
Mark_bensomagn3ts: i dont know how megavideo handles their stuff tbh, thats why im asking lol02:34
allowoverridei will start with trying to get that bluetooth light on dell laptop working FIRST02:34
linux_is_my_heromark_benso: one of the reasons to go from windows to linux is that linux doesnt have all the backdoors for programmers to exploit when setting up porno sites02:34
bazhangMark_benso, this is getting way offtopic02:34
magn3tsMark_benso, You really need to get past megavideo.02:35
bazhangMark_benso, lets move on please, and follow the channel guidelines for content as well02:35
TheEvilPhoenixallowoverride:  you need a bluetooth card in order to use bluetooth02:35
magn3tslinux_is_my_hero, that's not really accurate and is a massive over simplification.02:35
TheEvilPhoenixallowoverride:  the light is there on most systems.  does lspci show anything?02:35
Mark_bensobazhang: i dont think that bestiality is an offensive term , and by that i meant any content that wouldnt be fine, but if its getting off topic ill just beg forgivness and stop02:35
linux_is_my_heromagnets: really? then why do i never have problems getting porno for me and my girl since switching to ubuntu?02:35

Mark_bensoI'd just like to point out that i actually own a polite internet cafe, not a 18+ one lol02:36

linux_is_my_heroactionparsnip: it won't boot to ubuntu, so how do i edit files?03:04
magn3tsironfroggy, you removed the drive before executing these steps? I think those steps should regenerate the grub configuration files, you may need to do that... do you have a /boot on the remaining drive?03:04
linux_is_my_herorak85: hey :-)03:05
IdleOneallowoverride: take a look at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1101204 little old but may have some helpful hints03:05
ironfroggymagn3ts: i do. i booted into the liveCD and i did the grub install on /dev/sda from there and yes i have /boot on the new disk03:05
ActionParsniplinux_is_my_hero: you will need that link to edit it to get to the desktop, you can then edit the file and it will stick03:05
allowoverrideIdleOne: thanks for researching, ill chk it out...03:05
ironfroggyit seems like i have grub installed but it has no menu/list of kernels to boot03:05
ironfroggyso it just dumps me to its prompt03:06
ActionParsnipironfroggy: you are using grub2 which uses config files and generates grub.cfg03:06
magn3tsironfroggy, have you run update-grub2 ? you might give that a shot.03:06
magn3tsActionParsnip, does it error without a proper grub.cfg though? or does it maybe drop him at this empty prompt?03:06
ironfroggyi will try that03:07
SwitchcatQ: How can I tell if my laptop's built-in card reader is working and/or mount it when I put a card in?  I checked dmesg and didnt see anything obvious but I am not sure what to look for.03:07
ActionParsnipmagn3ts: yes it will error as there is no config to read03:07
magn3tsironfroggy, according to what ActionParsnip, I don't think that will probably fix it, but it shouldn't hurt either.03:07
linux_is_my_heroactionparsnip: i see: :-)03:08
linux_is_my_heroactionparsnip: much appreciated. 10.10 is way faster than 11.04 and ive been meaning to do this but havent had the time until NOW. :-)03:08
ironfroggyhow would i go about resetting the menu list for grub?03:08
ironfroggyi am thinking that is what i need03:08
magn3tsironfroggy, that command "should automatically detect the drives and configure grub appropriately".03:09
ironfroggybut how / where does it find the kernels?03:09
magn3tsIn what regard is 10.10 faster than natty?03:09
magn3tsironfroggy, what do you mean? It scans for them presumably?03:09
ironfroggywell its done that and it didnt find anything. i am trying to figure out how to do it myself03:10
ActionParsniplinux_is_my_hero: depends on config with regards to speed. My 11.04 LXDE based system boots and runs faster than my laptop which has a lot more grunt running gnome03:10
ActionParsniplinux_is_my_hero: the statement is none-sensical03:10
Phr3d13just so everyone knows: upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 doesn't fix a vt641003:11
allowoverridewhats the command to show bios info in cmdline? i forgot... thanks03:11
linux_is_my_heroyeah i would think 11.04 would be faster on my machine. but it wasnt.03:11
ActionParsniplinux_is_my_hero: not necessarily true that newer = faster03:11
magn3tsand linux is magically safer because it doesn't have "holes".03:11
linux_is_my_heroaction parsnip: my desktop is faster with 10.10, my laptop won't run 11.04, and my tablet seems to like 11.04 better than 10.1003:11

joshzI'm having a graphics issue with Ubuntu 11.04 on a Dell Inspiron 8600 (graphics card: AGP 4x - ATI Mobility Radeon 9000).03:14
joshz  It boots off the install disk without any problem whatsoever, but when I try to run off the computer itself after (successfully) installing, it hangs on the desktop, with windows flashing up occasionally for fractions of a second.  If I press ctrl+alt+f7, it gets me into a distorted shell (garbage characters.)03:14
joshz I just rebooted, and now am greeted with an all-white screen with black text on it that looks vaguely like emoticons.03:14

armelTestok no one was up in -arm. this maybe a simple question... can anyone tell me what this means03:27
armelTestPackage build-essential is not available, but is referred to by another package.This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, oris only available from another sourceE: Package build-essential has no installation candidate03:27

magn3tssomething that doesn't look like stock unity.03:31

magn3tsactually, do other DE's have support (even community support) for app-indicators? I've come to quite like them. It's such a nice fix for gnome-applets.03:32

ActionParsniproasted: yeah its nice03:37
magn3tslarie, that doesn't seem very likely.03:37
joshzThe strange thing is that I can run the install, boot off the live cd, and use the live cd without graphics issues at all.03:37
lariemagn3ts: what likely? :)03:38
TigerboyActionParsnip: that would work if it was saved on my system but I've had a couple rough starts as I try to get this one laptop up with 11.04... Hopefully buildessentials will reapear soon... heck Ill find it on the net.03:38
ActionParsniparmor-64: can you give the output of: sudo apt-get -y nstall pastebinit; pastebinit /etc/lsb-release03:38
magn3tslarie, I don't think you're going to find linux software that will read proprietary files.03:38
lariemagn3ts: i see03:38
magn3tslarie, there are alternatives to erwin, but not nearly as professional, and like I said, they won't read erwin files.03:38
allowoverridebefore i try wicd, what is the dpkg method to install from cmdline - NetworkManager back, since I wont be able to use wireless if i disable/uninstall NM to use Wicd and return. thanks!03:38
joshzCould there be a driver problem, or something? Based on the fact that the system displays the graphics fine off the cd, it seems weird that it would fail when not on the cd.03:38
roastedActionParsnip, it seems very simple. does it do playlist syncing to ipods and such?03:39
lariemagn3ts: $(file 1.erwin) shows me -> "data"03:39

allowoverridejust a quick one liner, that would help03:39
roastedActionParsnip, you and me both. I'm just trying to get acquianted with more media players since I have a few friends who might switch to linux IF they can find something to suit their ipod needs :P03:39
magn3tslarie, when I see something like erwin's website... I immediately think VirtualBox+Windows until you can get away from that application, if that's even possible.03:39

lariemagn3ts: thx! is that app the best? :p03:41
allowoverridedoes dpkg always go to the net to load a prog/util? where does it store package info? what dir?03:41
ActionParsnipallowoverride: you could tell apt-get to download the debs. You can always add the install CD as a repo and install network manager from there03:41
magn3tslarie, no clue, I ended up using paint as it was just a homework assignment.03:41
armor-64it's working,whana install it?03:41
magn3tslarie, honestly dbdesigner just happened to show up on a random search for "erwin files ubuntu".03:42
joshzAre there differences in hardware requirements for the live CD versus running from an install?03:42
allowoverrideActionParsnip: ic. but i did an upgrade from 9.10 to 10.10 from the net. so your saying i could burn a cd of 10.10 and load it locally and add to sources/repo?03:42
FriGiNJordan_U: you awake yet?03:42
magn3tsjoshz, possibly but I don't think so, what are you worried about?03:42
allowoverrideActionParsnip: where does dpkg info store the prog/utils it has installed? what dir?03:42
lariemagn3ts: hehe ;)03:42
joshzWell, the graphics work fine on the live CD, but I don't get anything beyond the desktop or occasional windows that flash up when I complete the install and boot off the laptop.03:42
magn3tsWhy do people insist on installing years old versions of ubuntu and then upgrading them in place when a 15 minute download would let them have a clean install?03:42

magn3tsjoshz, or at the gdm login screen, try "Ubuntu Classic" as the desktop to use.03:44

joshzNo noticeable change.03:45
allowoverridesometimes man pages are all over the map, you know that03:45
magn3tsjoshz, well that was my mistake, I meant to have you do `metacity --replace` but if you haven't even logged in, something else is messed up.03:45
joshzNo, it's set to auto-login, I think03:46
magn3tsjoshz, what kind of graphics card? Did you notice, did you have shadows during the installer?03:46
joshzAGP 4x - ATI Mobility Radeon 900003:46
magn3tsjoshz, ack, auto-login is the bane of my existence with graphics problems.03:46
joshzUmm...not sure.03:46
linux_is_my_heroactionparsnip: if my internet is fast on other computers, and my wireless is strong on the problem computer, why would internet be slow?03:46
joshzShould I try to reinstall and not do auto-login?03:47
magn3tsjoshz, yeah, if it's compiz related, you don't get a chance to not use it :S at least if it gets this bad.03:47
allowoverridecan someone ELSE give me a one liner for downloading NetworkManager so i can use it after i HAVE no wireless connection..... thanks03:47

brideanCan anyone familiar with linux administration answer these questions?   http://pastebin.com/bDx2zTy803:50
magn3tsjoshz, yes. You click your username and then options pop up, beside Session: will be a drop down box and "Ubuntu Classic" should be a choice. That will give you compiz, but no Unity. If that fails again, try the Fallback session.03:50
wabznasmjoshz: if you have user access set to 'no password' you won't see this screen03:50

allowoverrideas listed on http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/net/03:51
ActionParsnipbridean: you won't need to "disable wine", its not a default app. Just don't install it. If you keep your users as users and not in the admin group most of this be managed for you03:51
mrdebis the new dual core atom cpu that shows up as 4 cpus good for linux03:51
magn3tsbridean, I doubt that keyboards and mice have completely unique identifiers.03:51
ActionParsnipbridean: C compiling is available, you will just need to install the compiler03:51
magn3tsbridean, you could write said program. Forcing them to enter the information requires knowing how to hook it into the login process, not hard, but something to keep in mind.03:52
ActionParsnipbridean: you will need a proxy server to filter sites as well as log access03:52
magn3tsbridean, if you install the C compiler, even "guest" users will be able to use it.03:52
brideanmagn3ts, The wi-fi has internet access, but to use it you have to set the gateway IP, subnet IP, and so forth03:52
joshzmagn3ts: I see a faint shadow around the cursor, I think.03:53
magn3tsbridean, out of the box, they'll be able to bring in executables on jump drives, but you can disable external media, again, if you know how.03:53
allowoverrideactually its not! i do not see networkmanager on packages.whatever magn3ts. please make sure you post something i can use...03:53
magn3tsjoshz, ok. Hm.03:53
magn3tsallowoverride, pffft.03:53
joshzThere shouldn't be a problem with downloading updates or third-party software, should there?03:53
magn3tsallowoverride, I'll make sure and do that next time you yell in caps.03:53
brideanmagn3ts, So I can't for example, install Netbeans java compiler and only allow certain users access to it?03:53
magn3tsjoshz, shouldn't but I had problems with it during betas :S take that for what you will.03:54
dee27how come files in missing in /usr/local/etc?03:54
magn3tsbridean, that's past the extent of my knowledge. I believe there are ways you can control who has access to what executables, maybe with groups? ActionParsnip might be able to chime in.03:54
allowoverridemy bad, magn3ts im not in a good mood03:54
brideanmagn3ts, If the executables are Windows executables and wine isn't installed, wouldn't they not be able to use them?03:55
magn3tsbridean, correct, I meant linux executables.03:55
magn3tsallowoverride, isn't this roughly what you're looking for: http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/network-manager-gnome03:55
brideanmagn3ts, I don't know if the students are smart enough to create linux executables for hacking.03:55
magn3tsallowoverride, that page also includes a link at the bottom for network-manager.03:56
allowoverridethanks, appreciated03:56
magn3tsbridean, I would make the same assumption though I would've been able to had I desired. :P It's probably a safe assumption in my opinion.03:56
brideanmagn3ts, I suspect they get Windows executables from people who make them available.03:56
magn3tsbridean, I would suspect the same, yes.03:56
allowoverridemagn3ts: thats a lot of deps ! wow03:56
soreaubridean: a2) wine is not installed by default and thus, you do not need to 'disable it' b1) Users only need user access. On ubuntu, the root account is disabled by default. b2) You can configure individual use permissions on linux c1) Configure it as such c2) likewise c3) likewise c4) You can access users history c5) Doable at your own skills limitations Alt) Check the hardware device id's03:56
brideanmagn3ts, The thing is, these are Koreans.   Koreans are so group oriented (no original thought) that pretty much everybody just uses Windows03:57
magn3tsif you want an immutable log though, you'll need to do it at the network level.03:57
joshzWould there be any problem just going with the standard swap partition size, magn3ts?03:58
magn3tssoreau, would they have unique ids even from the same batch of KBs? I don't know how detailed things are at the usb level, just curious.03:58

allowoverrideok bazhang back to my issue, scroll up, its right there :)04:15
alesanused to be ooffice or soffice04:16
bazhangalesan, use the name of the program, what version of ubuntu by the way04:16
allowoverrideunless of course you dont know what i should do,, then please, someone else do jump right in ;) i appreciate real help04:16
alesanbazhang, yes, what is the "name of the program?"04:16
alesanbazhang, ubuntu 11.0404:16
bazhangalesan, libreoffice is in 11.04 for example, thus my asking version of ubuntu04:16
allowoverridesudo service bluetooth status    bluetooth is NOT running, which should i use, see above04:16
allowoverridebefore i do anything i want the right sequence of what to do next,,, im tired of all these diff ways to do the same thing04:17
alesanbazhang, can I get the rgular openoffice instead of "libreoffice" that sounds south-american?04:17
allowoverridealesan: libreoffice is the BOMB, use that for sure, forget the openoffice term04:17
alesanallowoverride, libreoffice works from the command line04:17

Will123456hey guys. my super button has packed in. pressing it or any other super-based button combos does nothing at all. i'm running ubuntu 11.04. where should i go from here? i don't really want to do a full reinstall04:20
alesanallowoverride, what are you talking about?04:20
magn3tsWill123456, what does "packed in" mean?04:21
alesanI wanted to configure thunderbird to use the correct application when I open a .doc file04:21
alesanand I need to specify the binary used to open such MIME type04:21
alesanthanks anyway04:21
Will123456magn3ts: i press it and nothing happens. i remember someone else having a similar problem, and someone recommended running a program that registered and printed back button press events. every button worked except for super.04:21
magn3tsalesan, trust me, you're better off ignoring him.04:21
magn3tsalesan, hold on.04:21
alesanmagn3ts, well but he kind of helped me to find the solution04:22
alesan"libreoffice" is the name of the command I need to call04:22
magn3tsalesan, which office app do you want it to open in04:22
magn3tsalesan, for example Writer would be:   `` libreoffice -writer %U ``04:22
linux_is_my_herowhy would a fresh install of ubuntu have rediculously slow internet when it was fine before i reinstalled ubuntu?04:22
alesanthe one that is associated with the particular file04:22
alesanwell if I have a .doc it should be smart enought to use the writer thing04:23
magn3tsalesan, lol it's making you match mime-types with programs, expecting it to be smart is asking a bit much.04:23

linux_is_my_heroyeah im upgrading right now...relaly wish i had a 40 foot ethernet cable04:23
magn3tsalesan, throwing random files at `libreoffice` may work. If it does, good for you I suppose :P04:23
alesanmagn3ts, once I assign .doc to "libreoffice" then it opens writer, that's how it works04:24

CppIsWeirdyou can make a bin folder in your home directory and put executables in there so that you can use them as commands right?04:43

CppIsWeirdhmm, no, its not.04:46
soreauCppIsWeird: You need to specify the full path the the executable if the directory containing the executable file is not in your $PATH04:46

ActionParsnipsoreau: cheers :D05:22
rwwone of them mentioned it at some point:05:23
rwwcompiz 0.9 was included because 0.8->0.9 switched programming languages, so they could either write Unity in the old one and then port it /again/, or write it in the new one and then include compiz 0.905:23
magn3tsI would completely naively guess unity.05:23
rwwi think it came up at the desktop Q&A on Monday05:23
rwwmagn3ts wins a cookie05:23
soreauThat was the main reason indeed. They needed a way to implement unity quickly, and compiz happened to be it.05:24
magn3tsI mean, lets be fair, unity isn't crazy finished or stable in it's own right. I'll just say I give a pass to people that say skip 11.04 more than "ditch ubuntu cause of unity"05:24
rwwoh, it was going to be re-written in Compiz either way. Clutter was a performance nightmare, and Ubuntu already used Compiz, so...05:25
soreaumagn3ts: In all fairness though, they released unity prematurely05:25
lucky711xwhere is samba shares configured now in 11.04?  I know shares used to be configured in smb.conf but if you right click and share a folder what config file is that saved in?05:25
magn3tssoreau, heh, no contention here. I think Mark was antsy about a visual refresh, he's been talking UI and UI revamp for quite some time05:25
soreauThey should have released 0.9 and tested those waters before dumping on a plethora of other new code in addition05:25
rwwsoreau: I don't think so. I don't think it's stable and finished, but I also think you can't have a 6-month release cycle and always have every plan stable and finished. That's what LTS is for.05:26

blargh_also, i want to set up the partition with gparted05:51
lucky711xblargh_: try this http://tinyurl.com/6yggaqd05:51

jgelihi, am running Natty on a laptop with AMD Fusion e350 and 8GB of ram. I have these freezes that I dont have with Win 7 on the same machine. how do i know whats causing the lock ups?05:53
soreaujgeli: Check logs such as /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog05:54
jgelisoreau, what am I looking for in those files?05:54
blargh_jordan: once i installed win7 over linux, then i could start linux from the bootmanager, so no problem05:54
ParadigmUltraDo people still use Comanche to configure Apache?05:55
blargh_but now i don't even get to the installation because of "NTFS5: no grldr"05:55
jordan_blargh, i just have no clue05:55
soreaujgeli: any interesting messages indicating a problem05:55
jgelisoreau, ill try to post some and hope someone can help05:56
ParadigmUltraI'm pretty suprised that Apache isn't listed in the Software Center05:56
_Neytiri_is there a good narrator out there?05:56
soreaujgeli: Lockups are usually caused by a kernel module (driver) issue but it can be hard to say which. Many times, it's the graphics driver05:57
jgelisoreau: i am having issues with this ATI driver, Apparently Unity doesnt like ATI hardware and this fusion APU is relatively new05:58
lucky711xin case anyone needs to know samba shares are now stored in /var/lib/samba/usershares05:58
zykotick9lucky711x, i think if you install the full samba you'll find the config is still in /etc - it's probably just the "personal file sharing" that uses that /var/lib/.. path05:59
lucky711xblargh_, what steps did you take to install ubuntu and win7?05:59
soreaujgeli: If you've installed the proprietary fglrx driver, remove it. If you're using the default radeon driver, ask in #radeon for support05:59
jgelisoreau: fglrx is the one that works. the open source one does not.06:00
ParadigmUltraAnyone know a good program to configure the Apache server?06:00
lucky711xzykotick9, in the /var/lib/samba/usershares06:00
lucky711x is where shares config files are store when you right click a folder and share it06:00
soreaujgeli: It works, but for newer radeon gpu's, you may need to update the driver stack on the latest version of ubuntu by installing xorg-edgers repo06:01
zykotick9lucky711x, ya that's with the "personal file sharing" or whatever it's called06:01
blargh_lucky711x: i installed ubuntu some time ago and now i have created a bootable USB drive to install win7 from. When booting from this it stops at checking the partitions, saying one is "NTFS5: no grldr" and the last one is "EXT2"06:01
soreaujgeli: It's best to remove fglrx and get help in #radeon06:01
jgelisoreau: im on the syslog but somehow cant find what i need to find.06:01
ActionParsnipblargh_: do you have unpartitioned space on the drive(s)06:01
jgelisoreau: nothing that says error or fail or something like that06:02
blargh_ActionParsnip: nope06:02
lucky711xzykotick9, but you can still use the smb.conf for shares but the /var/lib/samba/usershares06:02
lucky711x seems easier to me06:02
ActionParsnipblargh_: but you do have an NTFS partition?06:02
blargh_yes, two06:02
ActionParsnipblargh_: ok then i'd question the install media06:02
blargh_the empty one i wanted to install win7 to is /dev/sda106:02
blargh_the usb drive is an exact copy of the Win7 DVD06:03
blargh_NTFS formatted, boot flag set06:03
capriblargh: you need more than one partition06:04
caprias i told you before you need a seperated boot partition06:04
blargh_i have set the boot flag too on the empty NTFS partition06:05
nit-witwindows 7 can be installed in one partition unless you need the bitlocker on the ultimate06:05
blargh_nit-wit: its not Ultimate, it is Pro06:06
ActionParsnipblargh_: does the Win7 DVD allow you to copy it exactly? Does it not need extra software etc?06:06
ActionParsnipblargh_: boot flags are moot, you use grub now06:06

melrockzHi everyone, SMplayer is not working in Natty... no video appears, though command line mplayer plays the same video. What could be the issue?06:07
zykotick9melrockz, change the VO in smplayer, should be in the preferences/settings somewhere06:08
melrockzThe VO? Video is set to xv.06:08
zykotick9melrockz, from cli try "mplayer -vo xv FOO" and see if it works.  VO = Video Output06:09
melrockzThanks, I'll try that...06:09
ActionParsnipblargh_: it will boot the OSes once installed. I'd ask in ##windows to make sure the USB stick is made correctly06:10
wireheadhow would I resolve the "checking battery state" hang that occurs after installing a second video card?06:10
blargh_I will try to make the USB stick again from scratch using unetbootin06:10
melrockzNo, 'mplayer -vo xv' does not work!06:10
zykotick9melrockz, so in smplayer change to something else06:11

Tommy_nmwhow to setup CDMA800 Mhz  EVDO Internet connection on ubuntu 10.0406:12
melrockzLooks like x11 mode works in mplayer... I'll try that in smplayer now...06:12
nit-witblargh_, hold on I know a thumb loader that works with W7 i have to find it.06:12
zykotick9melrockz, x11 probably doesn't have "real" fullscreen!06:12
melrockzOops, GL does not work, btw I have old Intel 845GL onboard graphics only :(06:13
nit-witblargh_, http://liveusb.info/dotclear/  this is an excellent tool.06:13
blargh_ok, thanks06:13
zykotick9melrockz, try x11 and test if fullscreen works06:14
AlexDevilLXIs this phrase correct: "somewhen we will all fall down" ?06:14
nit-witblargh_, the method you used will work if you extract the iso to the thumb as well, IE ntfs partion on thumb and a boot flag, then exstract to it.06:14
melrockzK, thanks. One more Q, Doesn't Empathy hang when we try to access IRC chat? Can anything be done 4 that?06:15
Kaoloihi all06:17
zykotick9melrockz, do you have any other IM's configured before you tried IRC?  If not, try configuring something else first.  BTW, IM clients make poor IRC clients.06:17

andydamHi, I'm trying to get my audio to work on Ubuntu 10.10.06:19

andydamI have an ALC662, and I can't get any audio to come out.06:19
nit-witblargh_, if you have the flash block on it wont translate, it is on the translation page second download.06:20
Beyondandydam that sounds like a problem.06:20
melrockzbtw, are there any proper repos for mplayer and smplayer 4 natty? Looks like the ones I found support only Lucid.06:20

zykotick9Trasp, yes, but i haven't done it in a LONG time.06:35
Traspand do I have to install a shitload of librarys to get gdm working?06:35
blargh_what the hell - i am trying to create a 2.3GB ISO with brasero. all it does is create an image checksum and then finish with a 2.0 MB ISO file ...06:35
Traspzykotick9, that's a relief atleast06:36
sweati think andy had the usermod command in reverse.. i gave it to him the right way06:36
zykotick9Trasp, probably a lot less work just to log in ;06:36
Traspzykotick9, want my bitcoinminer to kick up on boot since I won't be around the machines too much and someone else might have to reboot them if something happens06:37

kingmilohi gents. I am booting the Alternate Install medium, however I dont think my graphics card is capable of displaying the nice install options so i only get install and expert install but my real goal is to install ltsp, so how do i tell my install i want to install ltsp from the lesser install options menu?06:38
zykotick9kingmilo, you are aware that Alternate is text only?06:39
kingmilozykotick9, yes, but before that you get the normal install menu, nice graphical menu where u can choose ur install and then it will drop to text when i select ltsp. The problem is the nice graphical install menu cannot be displayed so i get a text install menu without the ltsp install option if that makes sense?06:40
kingmiloso how do i specify i want an ltsp install from the text boot/install menu?06:41
zykotick9kingmilo, i'm not familiar with ltsp sorry.06:41
e_t_I thought you had to use either Edubuntu or Ubuntu Server to get the ltsp option.06:42
ActionParsnipe_t_: you can install server apps on the desktop if you wish06:43
kingmiloe_t_, you can use the Edubuntu, but the Alternate is where normal ltsp is and thats how that is installed06:44

dc5alaTrasp, ah okay, i misunderstood, with "boot" i have something else in mind ;)07:26
zykotick9Trasp, xterm has the same -e option07:26
ActionParsnipNCS_One: you may need w32codecs from medibuntu (i assume 32bit OS)07:27
duhamelskihello, somehow my ubuntu computer has lost communication with my debian fileserver.  all other computers on my network can communicate with eachother except for these two.  does anyone know how to debug this??07:27
breaker313ActionParsnip: Thanks, I'll take a look into that07:27
checoimgThank you Ubottu!07:27
NCS_Onee_t_: what do you recommend?07:27
Traspzykotick9, Nice =) thanks!07:27
NCS_OneActionParsnip: no, 6407:27
sweatTrasp: i supposed you could adjust your .bashrc to execute a terminal on bootup07:27
zykotick9NCS_One, fyi mkv is a container so it can have lots of different codecs inside - there is a w64codecs in medibuntu as well07:27
checoimgduhamelski,  have t=you tried the repair mode when you enter grub?07:28
ActionParsnipduhamelski: can you ping dns and gateway. Can you ping the server via name or ip?07:28
com64I'm having trouble transcoding with mencoder. I get "Audio LAVC, couldn't find encoder for codec libfaac."07:28
duhamelskieveryone else can but i cant ping or ssh07:28
ActionParsnipNCS_One: then w64codecs07:28
checoimgzykotick9,  htnkyou about the bot07:28
checoimgthank you*07:28
Traspsweat, I wanted to know how to run a terminal and make it terminal run a specific command, I know how to xinit and else, but zykotick9  helped me07:29
NCS_Oneok, thanks all07:29
ActionParsnipduhamelski: by both name and ip does it fail?07:29
zykotick9com64, if you are trying to make MP4 files i'd recommend using Handbrake, AAC is crippled in the default Ubuntu repo07:29
com64k thanks.07:29
com64I'm actually trying to transcode to a format that the PSP can play.07:29
duhamelskiActionParsnip: any clue for debugging this?07:30
ActionParsnipduhamelski: can you ping your default gateway?07:30
zykotick9com64, i'd guess Handbrake would work for that (but i don't have a PSP so can't be sure)07:30
checoimgNCS_One, non-free-codes form medibuntu07:30
com64where do I get handbrake?07:30
sandstormhello I've installed ubuntu with wubi and after booting into ubuntu I am getting errors such as: "Bad LUN (0:1) Bad Target Number (1:0)" etc. and it is whining about radeon graphics card. what might be the problem? Thanks.07:30

ubottucom64, please see my private message07:30
duhamelskiActionParsnip: i can ping every computer on my network except for this one07:30
duhamelskiActionParsnip: and every computer on my network can ping my server... and me... except mine07:31
checoimgNCS_One,  w64codecs is the exact name of the package07:31
checoimgI have it installed07:31
checoimgfrom medibuntu07:31
NCS_Onechecoimg: thanks07:32
ActionParsnipduhamelski: if you manually add a route does it work?07:33
checoimgNCS_One,  youe welcome07:33
duhamelskiActionParsnip: how do you do that?07:33
checoimgI'm trying to get XFCE to work with Compiz07:33
checoimgIt crashes sometimes07:33
checoimgAnd XFCE works better in the video drivers for me07:34
ActionParsnipduhamelski: there are sample route commands online. I'm on my phone and its not so fast but you can add a route to the individual host it may be ok07:35
duhamelskiActionParsnip: thanks07:35
checoimgsandstorm, I can't help you there maybe googling a little bit for those errors. Since when do you use UBuntu?07:35
Fudgehow can i specify nameservers in my interfaces file?07:36
sweatFudge: well i'm not saying you can't input them there but i think they belong in /etc/resolv.conf07:37
e_t_Fudge: add a line like "dns-nameservers x.x.x.x"07:38
Fudgethank you07:38
ActionParsnipduhamelski: worth a try. You can always remove it or reboot to revert07:38
zykotick9e_t_, it's "nameserver x.x.x.x" Fudge07:38
checoimgDoes someone knows where are the configuration files for the Monitor settings tool?07:38
checoimgI need to set the two monitor s to work together again07:39

zykotick9e_t_, Fudge sorry my bad.  I didn't know you could but nameservers in the interface file.07:40

phaidrosheya, lately I had a weather widget/applet within indicator, next to the clock.07:54
phaidrosbut I cannot find it anymore .. 11.04 .. any hints?07:54
wabznasmphaidros: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/12/my-weather-indicator-new-ubuntu-weather.html07:55
wabznasmphaidros: though there are a couple at least07:55
e_t_rooted-insideme: guessing based on (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_network_monitoring_systems), I'd go with cacti.07:57
phaidroswabznasm: yeah I know, but I am specifically looking for the one coupled to the clock, it came with stock ubuntu, though. because the standalone applet fails here with compiz and even doesnt find its location database and such07:57
rooted-insidemee_t_: ty bud07:57
wabznasmphaidros: nah - that one kept working/failing depending on the revision with me to, so maybe poor recommendation07:58
sweatrooted-insideme: i'm just a desktop user--icewm has me covered with a netstat icon in the bottom of the screen for bandwidth ups and downs07:58
wabznasmphaidros: go conky?07:58
phaidrosIf I remember correctly I had within the clock thingie in gnomepanel/indicator a button "shwo weather also" or alike ..07:58
phaidroswabznasm: nah, conky is nice, but pointless if gnome panel is running lotsa stuff already07:59
wabznasmphaidros: fairy nuff. I just ditched gnome so an other may have a better suggestion08:00
phaidroswabznasm: heh, I'd go for i3 or ion3 if I'd find the time to get really used to it, maybe with conky. all others like awesome and friends I didnt like too much08:01
wabznasmphaidros: 3rd day with awesome here...interesting08:02
phaidrosand for sure, gnome is bloated , but kde is ugly (imho, no pun to any reader here!, xfce isnt as lightweight as it used to be, and lxde is nice but not quite there feature and usability wise ..)08:02
phaidrosso, for daily use I stick to it .. and I want this darn weather thing back :D08:02
wabznasmphaidros: then I defer to the better informed others08:03

phaidroslonix: you just can use gnome classic, so unity doesnt get fired up08:04
wabznasmlonix: pretty much the stage I got to. I did think unity was attractive, but too cumbersome for mwe08:04
phaidroswait, you said 11.10 .. they'll ditch gnome classic ?08:04

TrevInclonix: I quit ubuntu forever. Thank you08:06
lonixFallback will be unity 2d08:07
tester Hi there any one got coffee and ready for this one.08:07
ejowhatever... I'm happy with ubuntu but switched to xmonad for my window manager08:08
phaidrosrooted-insideme: look for /etc/network/interfaces and configure your eth1, then configure in /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd or alike your dhcp3 server to listen on that interface, you can probably check /etc/default/dhcp* for standard settings before08:09
lonixwitch is still to "baby" for my taste i want a more direct control, rather than the point and click, fullscreen thing08:09

zolgarWould DL'ing Ubuntu Restricted Extras from the software center help?08:51
bazhangpepi_, just checking on opera, the java is in the partner repo08:52
bazhang!partner | pepi_08:53
ubottupepi_: Canonical's partner repositories provide packages a location for software vendors to publish applications. The repo itself can be added by running this in a !terminal: « sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner" »08:53
pepi_i write that in terminal?08:53
bazhangzolgar, not that I'm aware. you need the libdvdcss2 for that from medibuntu.org08:53
zolgarbazhang: okay08:54
bazhangpepi_, or go into synaptic package manager and enable the partner repo08:54
zolgarbazhang: okay i got it as a tar.gz file. do i extract it then run something?08:54
bazhangpepi_, once you have reloaded the packages list, then search for java08:54
bazhangzolgar, its a .deb from medibuntu.org08:55
pepi_from where i enable it08:55
gaurav_nattymy mircophone is not working i think in alsamixer some setting r distrubed08:55
bazhangpepi_, do you have synaptic package manager open in front of you?08:55
zolgarbazhang: my bad dl'd the source XD08:55
th0rzolgar: there should be an ubuntu page about adding medibuntu to synaptic08:56
sandstormhello I've installed ubuntu with wubi and after booting into ubuntu I am getting errors such as: "Bad LUN (0:1) Bad Target Number (1:0)" etc. and it is whining about radeon graphics card. what might be the problem? google and such returns no results. Thanks.08:56
zolgarbazhang: would a restart be in order?08:56
jnsl_how can i update to the latest version of tar?08:56
bazhangpepi_, see the tabs?08:56
bazhangpepi_, the tab that says 'other software'?08:56
zolgarbazhang: guess not. its working :D thanks tons08:57
bazhangth0r, he can just dl the deb, no need for the repo08:57
bazhangpepi_, so click the tab other software, put a check on the canonical partners08:57
gaurav_nattymy mirocphone is not woking08:58
bazhanggaurav_natty, adjust in alsamixer then08:58
pepi_there is several javas, which one im supposed to instal?08:58
bazhangpepi_, close that window, then hit reload08:58
bazhangpepi_, did you update the sources yet? ie reload?08:59
bazhangpepi_, so search for the sun-java packages08:59
hacking_uis here anyone who  installed gnome 3 on natty?09:00

bazhang!gnome3 | hacking_u09:00
ubottuhacking_u: Gnome 3 is not currently supported on Ubuntu. A PPA for natty is available at https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3 but these packages are EXPERIMENTAL and UNSTABLE, will break Unity and possibly other parts of your system, and cannot be downgraded safely.09:00

jnsl_how can i get the latest tar version ? tar --version, gives me 1.22, if i do apt-get install tar, it says tar is latest version but on the tar homepage i read that tar exist in version 1.2609:01
bazhang!java | pepi_ please read09:01
ubottupepi_ please read: To install a Java runtime on Ubuntu on 10.04 LTS and newer, see http://tinyurl.com/2ffg7cc -  For the Sun Java products and browser plugin, search for the sun-java6- packages in the !partner repository on Lucid (which must be enabled), or !multiverse repository on older releases.09:01
bazhangjnsl_, why would you possibly need the latest tar09:01
VictorCL2is there anything similar to notepad++ but for ubuntu?09:02
pepi_okay got it09:02
pepi_how about the opera?09:02
jnsl_i have a module on my server that generates a tar file, but i can't read the file afterwards, says "it dosen't look like a tar file", so i wanted to try and update my version of tar on the server09:02
wabznasmVictorCL2: geany, gedit, notepad++ under wine09:02
wabznasmVictorCL2: kate09:02
VictorCL2yes .. gedit dosnt have syntax highlight09:03
wabznasmVictorCL2: addons can be obtained, but the usual opinion on the net is thatnothing is quite the same as N++09:04
dc5alajnsl_, the problem is probably somewhere else but not in your tar version, probably corrupt file?09:04
bazhangpepi_, you got the .deb from opera homepage, right? just double click it to install09:04
VictorCL2yes I know .. they are like cheap copies :/09:04
wabznasmVictorCL2: add the usual standards of emacs, vim and gvim09:04
wabznasmVictorCL2: which is why I suggested N+ under wine. Apparently very stable09:05
VictorCL2yes .. but why do I have to emulate a windows program on linux ... I want to get confortable using linux softare09:05
jnsl_dc5ala maybe, but there are not much bug info on this, so i figured it might be something with my enviorment09:05

hacking_ubazhang, i didn't know about #ubuntu+1 channel, thx very much09:10

TricksI have recently upgraded to ubuntu 11.04 but have been having some teething issues; firstly, the computer crashes randomly. The monitor output is completely white. Secondly, I can't use dual monitors anymore. Both monitors show the standard desk top but I can't drag windows from left to right09:13
Tricksanybody been having similar issues?09:13
Tricksmy card is: GeForce 7100 GS which worked fine with Ubuntu 1009:14
Incarus6Tricks, does that issue occur only in Unity?09:14
Tricksnope both in classic and unity09:14
deemTricks: did you checked if your card is using 2 xserver and not twinview?09:14
Tricksdeem, hmm09:15
Tricksdeem, this is the strange part, I've used the nVidia gui to set the monitors but when I look in Xorg I can see twin view in the file09:16
Tricksdeem, shall I post the config file?09:16
Tricksdeem, I don't like playing with it cos I don't want to break anything :P09:16

jungleBust3rTricks, you could try creating a 10 gb partion by moving your current one with gparted (gui) installing ubuntu again and playing with that version. Not the most elegant way, yet...09:22

dddbmttsimpson: Symbolic link not allowed or link target not accessible:09:23
dddbmt... so it's my permissions for my SVN folder that's wrong?09:23
Incarus6Tricks, are you sure you saved the nvidia-settings configuration file properly?09:23

arfbtwnKaoloi: so as Dr_Willis said, you don't have a full ubuntu partition10:20
Diverdudesquaregoldfish, aha that gave a lot of info, look: http://pastebin.com/SBiqJbSQ10:20
Kaoloiarfbtwn,  ok, so now if I want to use ubuntu only. I insert my install CD and restart my laptop. follow the instructions and look for an option where i have 'install ubuntu and format the entire drive'?10:21
arfbtwnKaoloi: bingo ;)10:21
Kaoloiarfbtwn, and this will erase my current data on ubuntu right?10:22
Kaoloilike my email settings and stuff10:22
hacking_uKaoloi, have you backed up your data you need?10:23
squaregoldfishDiverdude: So it looks like you've got a greyscale image, but it's encoded as RGB with the image data in the Blue channel. Weird.10:23
arfbtwnKaoloi: The option actually says erase entire disk, so, yes. Do you want to backup your home dir first?10:23
Diverdudesquaregoldfish, i think its grayscale10:23
Diverdudesquaregoldfish, that was my thought also10:23
Kaoloimaybe i should do that haha..10:23
Diverdudesince it has10:23

squaregoldfishdiverdude: Exactly.10:23
arfbtwnKaoloi: tar -jcvf homebackup.tar.bz2 $HOME from ubuntu should do it10:23
Kaoloiwhere will it back up?10:24
caddooprobably a retarded question. But i'm using the latest ubuntu, and i find the font / font rendering very odd10:24
Diverdudesquaregoldfish, ohh well, i will treat it as a colorimage then :) perfect. thx10:24
caddooand hard to work with10:24
Diverdudeehmm grayscale i mean10:24
caddoodid anyone else find this10:24
squaregoldfishdiverdude: Hehe. No problem. Might be worth you converting it to proper greyscale to avoid future confusion...10:24
Kaoloiarfbtwn, when i reinstall ubuntu i'll be able to use that back up? I just need the settings and app i've downloaded...10:24
Kaoloinot much data10:25
Diverdudesquaregoldfish, im gonna import in my python script, so ill just deal with it in there10:25
squaregoldfishdiverdude: Fair enough. Enjoy :)10:25
hacking_uKaoloi, what is dist you use10:25
arfbtwnKaoloi: where ever you say homebackup.tar.bz2 will be. Then you can put that anywhere10:25
caddooalso is it normal to have like 10 updates a day?10:26
hacking_uKaoloi, ummm, natty or ...10:26

TL1caddoo: life never stops10:27
arfbtwnKaoloi: don't worry, it's probably natty but that doesn't really matter too much10:27
hacking_uKaoloi, what is your version of ubuntu(or other dist?)10:27
TL1caddoo: do you have a slow connection ?10:27

Kaoloihacking_u, just a little question, if I reinstall it and only use ubuntu. can i confirm with you guys that i can still install windows 7 later? (in a tiny partition maybe?)10:31
caddooany IDE recommendations for PHP? Using NB 7.0 at the moment its functional but it just doesn't fit in nicely with the OS and is a bit sluggish sometimes10:31
=== ruben is now known as Guest52650
hacking_uKaoloi, yes, u can but if install windows with ubuntu after setting up ubuntu, it can be harder then setting up ubuntu with pre installed windows10:32
KolakCCPretty sure you can't talk about IDEs anywhere..10:33
Kaoloii think i'll follow arfbtwn, do a reinstall (a good clean to my laptop). and hopefully i can use that backup file he made me do somehow! so that I dont have to enter my email settings, apps downloaded, etc.10:33
Kaoloiok ill use ubuntu as my base OS10:33
arfbtwnKaoloi: That command will only backup your settings10:33
Kaoloithats fine then!10:33
arfbtwnKaoloi: you'll still need to re-install the programs fresh10:33
Kaoloiits alright :)10:33
Kaoloibut how to use that backup file?10:34
arfbtwnKaoloi: Once you've reinstalled, you unzip with tar -jxvf homebackup.tar.bz2 but execute from /home10:35
arfbtwnKaoloi: If anything goes wrong, keep a hold of that file ;)10:36
hacking_uKaoloi, u said ur a begginer linuxer, so i propose u to use gui backup tool10:36
Kaoloiok thank you so much arfbtwn & hacking_u, ill try to do it. if im lost ill come and see you again!10:37

Rousemust give11:47
com64for the other partitions, you dont need a mount point11:47
Rousehmm okay :)11:48
com64it may be a good idea to have a swap partition11:48
com64so maybe make another partition11:48
rooted-insidemearfbtwn: so I have to have dnsmasq installed?11:48
Rousetotally 511:48
Rousebut ly 4 primary is allowed11:48
arfbtwnrooted-insideme: you can also do it through network manager from the ipv4 tab when you edit the connection11:48
arfbtwnrooted-insideme: and you won't need dnsmasq11:48
com64make the size at least as much as your RAM, and format to swapfs... then the mount point for it would be linux-swap11:49
rooted-insidemearfbtwn: it's a remote box11:49
com64rouse, can you make a logical partition instead?11:49
com64instead of primary?11:49
introublePici you mean  /path/to/filename means path to folder containing files and subfolders?11:49
arfbtwnrooted-insideme: then dnsmasq is probably the way to11:49
com64rouse, so do that I guess...11:49
introublePici iam new to linux11:49
Piciintrouble: I missed the first question. Can you re-explain what you are trying to do, and I'll provide a command to do what you need to?11:49

introublePici in a folder containing many files. is there a way to change a certain word of every file name (if it contains it) and every code in the file name (if its a .php file for e.g) and replace it with another auto matically?11:51
introubleif in a folder that has subfolders and files. abc232.jpg  00sabc_3.txt and 11.php that contains code that contains *abc*  .   i want to replace all abc with xyz.11:51
Piciintrouble: find /path/to/files/ -type f -iname "*.php" -exec sed -i 's/abc/xyz/g' {} \;11:53
introublePici no the files may or may not be .php  . they can be any . js .jpg11:53
arunkumar413hi, i want to add a short cut key to run a python program which i use frequently. how to do it?11:53
introublePici so type f -iname "*.php"  should be type f -iname "*.*"11:54
Piciintrouble: So it sounds like you want two things to happen.  1) Rename all files and switch abc to xyz and 2) change all code within php files so that abc is now xyz ?11:55
duryGreat for Linux <3 :)11:55
introublePici yes. but i say agian the files may be .php or any other.other11:56
Piciintrouble: Theres no telling what might be in binary files, you could end up corrupting a jpg if you told it to arbitrarily replace text within it.11:56
melvincvHi, now I found my bearings :)11:57
introubleok.. Pici11:59
Piciintrouble: Anyway, the syntax for renaming recursively would be something like: find /path/ -type f -exec rename 's/abc/xyz/' {} \;12:00

ichbinderhello. Is there a history of Ubuntu's Update Manager? Since I used the update manager yesterday, some of my projects using opencv are making trouble... so I wanted to check if it has been updated.13:08

benedict__xangua, are you using the ppa?13:22
dydhow can i list the folders that a certain server shares in lan?13:23

dydusr13: btw is there a way to see shares by command line?13:26

melvincvHi all, I need a good download manager for Natty.13:27
usr13dyd: cat /etc/exports  ?13:27
benedict__Pici, what ubuntu do you use? and do you use the minitube ppa?13:27
xgt001melvincv: try commandline wget13:27
dydusr13: the shares are from another server13:27
melvincvwget supports multiple connections?13:28

usr13dyd: Just guessing.  Don't know how you have them mounted.13:28
usr13dyd: mount13:29
melvincvGood. Some links copied from the browser end with random characters. The browser resolves and gets the correct link. How may I do this when I use wget?13:29

=== ng_ is now known as zz_ng_
usr13rumba: Ubuntu does not come with the tools required to compile from source and build packages from "tarballs".  Installing build-essential solves that for you.13:34
rumbaBut what happens if I install that package? Will the packages from here http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/build-essential be installed?13:35
brainwave92rumba,  if you install that package, you can build all programs when you have the source package13:36
melvincvFor example, how do I download this link with wget? It's an mp3. http://link1.songs.pk/song1.php?songid=852013:36
rumbamelvincv: wget http://link1.songs.pk/song1.php?songid=852013:36
Picirumba: yes, but replace dapper with a release that is actually supported.13:36
rumbaPici: Ok, thanks13:37
icerootmelvincv: wget "url" instead of wget url.  "" is trying to resolf the link13:37
melvincvGreat! Thanks! I'll try that out.13:37

benedict__anyone with ubuntu 10.04 know software that plays videos from youtube? minitube and totem could but i think the youtube api is changed so i would have to go for PPAs (don'T want, once killed my system) and vlc could too if i used a PPA. so is there software that does what i want out of the box?13:45
Cube``i cant get to install them, not even using the gui package manager13:46
xanguabenedict__: already updated minitube with the ppa¿13:47
melvincvHi, how do I change the no. of connections to the download server in wget? This is essential in a download accelerator, right?13:47
usr13benedict__: So wht goal is to play youtube videos in some other way rather than via a browser?13:48
benedict__xangua, no, as i said before, i once messed with PPAs and ended up with a messy system. i'd rather look for alternatives before playing with ppas13:49
benedict__usr13, yes13:49
sipiormelvincv: wget is not a download accelerator.13:49
rumbausr13: thanks13:49
KNUBBIGis it possible to run emerald with unity?13:50
benedict__usr13, earlier i did it with vlc, but in ubuntu 10.04 it's not at the version vlc needs to play youtube (further on, if you make a youtube playlist in vlc the playlist will be modified by vlc)13:50
melvincvOh, I see. I need a download accelerator then.13:50
usr13benedict__: Well, if you just download the flash video files, you can view them how ever you want.  Right?  Or do you still want to view them in a streaming fashion?13:50
xanguaKNUBBIG: i believe no13:50
benedict__usr13, then i tried totem but never got anywhere and today i was told about minitube, which  seems to work flawlessly in ubuntu 1113:50
blinkybhi. I can't see the Sound control on the taskbar! i can't adjust sound :/13:51
KNUBBIGxangua: ok that matches my experience, thanks :D13:51
benedict__usr13, i want to stream them. the perfect thign would be: open the programm, enter what i search for, see the suggestions of youtube, choose on and play it13:51
systemd0wnbenedict__: Lol. Like in firefox?13:52
benedict__systemd0wn, yes. and it works, at least in minitube and totem13:52

mgolischwamicho: like does ps aux|grep mysqld return anything?14:01
KNUBBIGwamicho: are you using xampp?14:02
mgolischdoes your server listen on unix sockets at all?14:02
mgolischif not try to sepcify the hosts ip14:03
benedict__systemd0wn, i think youtube changed it's API and this is why minitube or totem can not correctly access the videos14:03

sipiormikemol: does your current gdm process have the "-nolisten tcp" switch on?14:03
systemd0wnAh. And its not maintained i take it14:04
KNUBBIGwamicho: if stock /etc/init.d/mysqld start (I think)14:04
benedict__usr13, i can not see any hints that dragonplayer plays videos from the youtube web site14:04
mgolischwamicho: nothing else? this means there is no mysqld running14:04
Picibenedict__: You might be able to find a PPA for minitube for Lucid.14:04

MichaelDoeHello guys. Just having some serious trouble with my Ubuntu 11.04. Just updated my kernel - and now the new Kernel'd Linux won't start. When trying to start, it switches between a totally black (off) screen and a command prompt screen (just an underscore). Before that problem, Linux froze and showed a messy picture when starting blender in windowed mode. The current possibility for me is that I use under GRUB Earlier Versions or 15:12

mikemolb0n1: Possibly using something like this: http://freshmeat.net/projects/fuse-zip15:29
mikemolkantxx: They should be enabled by default. They're called 'pty's, and are necessary for things like 'screen' 'xterm' 'konsole' and 'gnome-terminal' to work.15:30

faz_lame question time but here goes: what are some things i can do to make my ubuntu11 desktop look kewl as hell :)15:31
mikemol(Which I've never seen, really)15:31
fishscenefaz_: for starters, get a background that you love.15:31
mikemolpteague_work: On my debian system, logrotate complains if I don't clear out the old rotated logs; I get emailed snippets of the log files it's deleting. Perhaps you need to do some cleanup?15:31
asdjaputra!ot | faz_15:31
ubottufaz_: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!15:31
dydhow can i set graphical settings to the fastest ones?15:32
pteague_workmikemol, well, /var/log/mysql.{err,log,log.1} all have a size of 0 & there's no .gz files... /var/log/mysql/error.log is 31525... & i'm not seeing a mysql-slow.log ... hmm... maybe that's the issue?15:33
mikemolpteague_work: Maybe. Also check permissions for logrotate, for the files it's supposed to be moving around, how many archived copies it's configured to allow, whether or not it's able to control mysqld (if it needs to), and whether or not the disk is getting full-ish.15:35
mikemolMore or less random ideas. :)15:35

llutzBluesKaj: nope, read my line again :)15:39
mikemolwh1zz0: I'd venture a guess that you need to set up a DHCP server on your 'ad-hoc' network. Otherwise, the other wireless clients won't know which IP their gateway is on. AFAIK, there's no simple, graphical way to do this; you'll likely need to learn how to use a DHCP server like ISC's or dnsmasq.15:40
llutzBluesKaj: you can scp that file wherever you want, just use the same path/filename in both commands15:40
mikemolllutz: Note that using scp, you may overwrite any existing entries in authorized_keys15:41

llutzmikemol:  "scp ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub user@host:~/pubkey " then ssh into remote host, and "cat ~/pubkey >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys && rm ~/pubkey"   wont overwrite anything important15:42
ikoniagalamar: the only method is bootstrapping but that's not something I'd suggest15:42
mikemolAh, yeah. That's the reasonable way to do it.15:42

BluesKajmikemol, yes ..justrying to setup pw-less login , that's all ..ssh works fine otherwise15:45
mikemolxxghostxx: Sure, but if 'cd' isn't an actual binary, it needs to be captured by the shell. What you're used to in terms of 'linux commands' is probably a shell command.15:45
* mikemol goes back to work15:45

ubottugalamar see this, helps to install all the stuff you had before. backup /etc/ and /home: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate16:06

Tigerboyron34563654: click the network icon on the task bar and select one of the ones available... make sure it is set up as auto... sometimes I have found that typing in a fixed IP which must be available on your subnet... the gateway(the same ip used to get your router settings page up) and even typing in the DNS ( you can use googles public dns) can help because sometimes the router's DHCP is not so great. With wireless the problem ca16:12

abrown_Dulak:   A lot of headers in /usr/include/linux were updated this morning.   The dots arent showing any action, so it's probably early in the hw detection -- the Nvidia detection must be bad.16:18
szalabrown_: kernel 2.6.38-10 is from natty-proposed, and unless they also have precompiled nVidia driver binaries for it, you need to install the nVidia driver for that kernel 'the hard way', if I'm not mistaken16:18
Dulakabrown_: at the grub menu you can hit the 'e' key to edit the boot line, delete 'quiet' and 'splash' from the line then hit ctrl-x to boot it without the splash16:19

Escherialhello :) is there any way to stop eclipse from displaying its tooltips in the "dead" section below my monitor?17:26
BluesKajppp, look for wireless mobile adapter or something similar17:27
PythonEscherial: try #eclipse17:27
Escherial(i'm using a dual monitor setup where my primary's height is smaller than my secondary, thus there's this rectangular "dead area" underneath my primary)17:27
pppmmh i'm browsing some stuff on google atm17:27
roastedDoes anyone know if Listen supports the ability to sync playlists?17:27
Pythonppp: pastebin the output please17:27
Escherialit happens most noticeably in eclipse, but i figured it was a window manager issue17:27
ActionParsnipEscherial: could try in Ubuntu classic to test17:28
pppPython hold on, in 5 minutes, i'll see what i can do now17:28
yulerMetacity is more responsive than Compiz on my system (10.10 + updates, Nvidia 6200.  If I ditch Compiz for Metacity, I have to figure out why window overlays in Firefox are not drawing completely.  Any ideas?17:28
EscherialActionParsnip: that's not a bad idea :)17:28
ActionParsnipYuler: if you reduce compiz plugins it will be more responsive17:29

Escherialthis is unrelated to anything, but hibernate doesn't seem to do anything on my machine :\17:34
Escheriali'd like to hibernate ubuntu so that i can switch to windows without losing all the stuff i have open17:35
ActionParsnipEscherial: thats what I thought, just checking though, I'm English and Americans have different enunciation ;-)17:35
Escherialppp2: i don't believe so; that looks like a wired ethernet adapter17:36
Escherialunless there's some wireless gigabit standard of which i'm unaware @_@17:36
Pythonppp2: no it's the ethernet card17:36
