Benkinoobynotsureaboutthis, in your case you want the .deb file. this is the file that is allready compiled. only if you want to comle the programm on your own or if you want to see the source code you should go for the source files.00:00
Benkinoobynotsureaboutthis, just curious: what deb do you want to install?00:00
w30Eitan, the problem is that the Web page is IE only, not for Firefox, Opera, Chrome, etc.00:00
w30Eitan, thank Bill for that.00:01
notsureaboutthisBenkinooby: this game engine: http://www.panda3d.org/ I assume it's safe because it looks legitimate, i think i'll just try it and hope for the best :) (if i looked at the source code on my own i doubt i'd know what it was even doing anyway)00:01
w30Eitan, lots of big company apps are built that way and they would find it expensive to change so IE 6 keeps on existing.00:02

bazhanggodtrunks2, you're trying to compile aircrack; got build-essential installed ?01:15
* edbian loves jumanji01:15
FloodBot1billy2007: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.01:15
FrozenFireMy understanding is that Xorg automatically generates a configuration for the hardware it handles on boot, rather than using the Xorg.conf as was previously used. Is there a way to export a working configuration of Xorg into an Xorg.conf, and then inhibit regeneration?01:16
bazhangbilly2007, stop that01:16
kcjedbian, ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda6 /mnt01:16
edbiankcj: Go to the /mnt folder and look at it.  Are the file read only?01:16
edbiankcj: no news is good news. No error means the command worked01:16
godtrunks2this is build-essential01:17
billy2007if i download a torrent using vuze where can i find the completed download01:17
FrozenFirebilly2007, Wherever you have Vuze configured to download to.01:17
FrozenFirePersonally, I use ~/Torrents for Deluge.01:17
kcjedbian, Still read-only. I can't create folders or files.01:17
FrozenFireMight go to ~/Downloads01:17
bazhanggodtrunks2, aircrack-ng is in the repos, why are you compiling it01:17

bazhangsudo apt-get install aircrack-ng godtrunks201:18
edbiancanu-qumm: I like the movie and the game jumanji.  I use Debian and firefox :)01:18

edbiancanu-qumm: When I said jumanji I was referring to one hell of a movie01:19
edbiancanu-qumm: Does it run on linux?01:19
kcjedbian, http://paste.ubuntu.com/643666/01:19
bazhanggodtrunks2, you installed it, using the command above? then no need to compile it01:19
canu-qummedbian: yes, it's FOR linux.01:19

billy2007by right clicking an iso and selecting burn to disk will make the disk executeble am i right01:20

dan__what do i need to install to get System->Preferences->Sound? I'm on 10.04 and it's missing01:20
bazhanggodtrunks2, in the terminal type -----> which aircrack-ng01:22
edbiankcj: The partition is mounted read / write but the liveCD user doesn't have permission to edit the files.  Are you trying to do a one time fix here?  use gksudo nautilus and use that window to do what you need to do.  It is root01:22
kcjfilo1234, edbian, Ah. gksu nautils saved the day. :) Thanks for the help.01:22
edbiancanu-qumm: Looks like you need to use git01:22
canu-qummedbian: I got it installed, the output didn't go too well with jumanji.01:22
edbiankcj: Sure.  Alternatively you might be able to run the mount command without sudo and then you don't need it at all.01:22
godtrunks2i typed01:22
bazhanggodtrunks2, and what was the output01:23
edbiancanu-qumm: What did it say? Do you have those dependencies met?01:23
billy2007by right clicking an iso and selecting burn to disk will make the disk executeble am i right i just want to double check as i only have one disk left01:23
canu-qummedbian: im kind of a noob.. lol01:23
edbiancanu-qumm: What are you trying to tell me?01:23
edbianbilly2007: In Ubuntu ?01:23
bazhanggodtrunks2, try this:    sudo apt-get install aircrack-ng01:23
billy2007edbian, yes but not an ubuntu iso file a different operating system01:24
bazhangbilly2007, it will burn the iso to disk for booting, no matter the OS01:24
edbianbilly2007: I wouldn't trust right lick.01:25
edbianbilly2007: But perhaps it does do that.01:25

billy2007hi i need help with vbox i found this forum http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1198060 it shows my problem and a solution but when i type sudo  /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup it says command not found?04:03
zelozelosubuntu24234, ok, durring install youll get to a partition optons menu, you want to set it to manual,04:03
bazhangBarami, then there is not one04:03
bazhang!gnome3 | Barami04:03
ubottuBarami: 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.04:03
zelozelosubuntu24234, if you do it right it wont mess with windows at all, did you defrag windows 1st?04:03
ubuntu24234zelozelos: is that after a screen that gives the options replace windows and something else?04:03
uuser123bazhang: i have added that line with vi ,added in last04:03
Roasted_Which multimedia applications besides Rhythmbox and Banshee allow you to synchronize a playlist to your media device?04:03
ubuntu24234zelozelos: no i didn't04:03
BaramiI know. But i have a problem about input method with gtk3.04:04
zelozelosubuntu24234, is it a new or almost new win install?04:04
Baramii can't find answer on the web.04:04
bazhangBarami, its offtopic here. so please dont ask any further.04:04
ubuntu24234zelozelos: 6 months04:04
zelozelosubuntu24234, ok you need 2 defrag 1st unless its 7 which does it automatically, vista will if you had it set to do it04:04
ubuntu24234zelozelos: it is windows seven04:05
zelozelosubuntu24234, this is because you will be squishing your win partition and making room for linux and swap04:05
uuser123bazhang: last time when i download this group of package it went through04:05
ubuntu24234zelozelos: so do I have to defrag if the install is windows seven04:05
maestrohi, I'm having an issue upgrading to 11.04, I get this error at the end of the download bit:  Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/k/kde4libs/libkhtml5_4.6.2-0ubuntu4_i386.deb Size mismatch04:06
zelozelosubuntu24234, personally i always start with defrag 1st when messing around with a windows partition04:06
uuser123but when i try to download .rar file after that i am facing this problem04:06
ubuntu24234zelozelos: ok will do then04:06
ubuntu24234zelozelos: thanks :-)04:06
zelozelosubuntu24234, ok so after that when you get to the partition manager part of the install you have 2 click install side by side, then scroll the amount of disk space you want to allocate04:06
zelozelosgood luck04:07
Baramii know, but i had been found channel that can have discussion about gnome on this server.( #ubuntu-next? #ubuntu-gen? )  but i forgot the correct channel name.;04:07
bazhangBarami, there is none..04:07
bazhangBarami, as I said 11.04 does not support gnome304:07
uuser123when ever i try to download any package with sudo apt-get install owasp-* or even sudo apt-get install owa* it give me error with could not find package owasp-wte-s2-.rar04:09
MrCleanWithHairuuser123: why are you using  a *04:09
nagchampaI've run into a problem where I have a fakeraid (raid 0, intel, required for dual booting) partitioned using gpt and dmraid doesn't automatically intialise the partitions04:09
uuser123becase there is a lot of package04:09
nagchampai can use kpartx to initialise the partitions after startup, but i'm wondering what the best way to have this occur automatically at startup04:10
nagchampai'm thinking creating a boot script to run before local partitions are mounted, so i can add the partitions on the raid to fstab04:11
nagchampajust wondering if anyone has a better option04:11

saliakhas anyone here been able to start a daemon from their /etc/rc.local script? i start one that foks an di see its output in boot.log, but it stops running04:42
billy_ActionParsnip, 4.0.2 i think you helped me uninstall it earlier and it hasnt worked on reinstall ever since04:42
ActionParsnipbilly_: you can run virtualbox on windows, its made by the same people04:42
chocolatesActionParsnip, can i pm you what the terminal is telling me to do after i installed it?04:42
chocolatesit is pretty long,and i am not sure what it is asking me to do.04:43

ActionParsnipbilly_: do the messages you posted get made when you try and launch virtualbox itself or is it in the OS you have installed in a virtual system.04:44
chocolatesActionParsnip, http://pastebin.com/HRgbTcTS04:44
billy_as soon as ive made the vm and try to launch it04:44
saliakseems like it gets a sigterm at the end of rc.local04:44
ActionParsnipchocolates: use software centre and disable the CD as a repo, then enable universe an multiverse04:44
e_t_ActionParsnip, the error billy_ is talking about is on the host. The guest VM never successfully starts.04:44
wildbatubuntu24234: you have single drive?04:45

HackNewtonSenjai, why use terminal if you do it by GUI ?04:47
ActionParsnipchocolates: install the packages it names to get rid of the warnings04:47
SenjaiHackNewton, xinerama broke the GUI04:47
chocolatesActionParsnip, the terminal is installing them, is that ok?04:47

billy_ActionParsnip, where do i find that sorry i really aint very good at this04:48
infinigodwhat do i put in the sudoers file to allow a user ALL access except for "su"04:49
wildbatubuntu24234:  you need to resize partitions ~ and make a new one for ubuntu . you can use Gparted ~ to do it you can only have four primary partition ~ so you have to backup one ~ then delete it , then make a logicial partition so you can have more then four partitions.04:49
ubuntu24234wildbat: so the ubuntu installer can't do that04:49
ActionParsnipbilly_: you can use user management to add the user to the group, there are many guides on virtualbox on the which I think you should use rather than guessing, they show you how to do it properly04:49
ubuntu24234wildbat:  can I run gparted off the live usb04:49
bullgard4ubuntu24234: Yes.04:50
e_t_billy_: type "groups" on the command line and press Enter. That command shows you all the groups your user is a member of. Look for "vboxusers" in the list.04:50
ubuntu24234bullgard4: to both questions?04:50
bullgard4ubuntu24234: No.04:50
wildbatubuntu24234: nope ~ you have to allocation spaces for ubuntu ~and  yes you can  ALt-f2 type in "gparted"04:50

saliakActionParsnip: it's already running as a daemon, is that still necessary?04:57

saliakActionParsnip: looking at syslog and my debug messages, it seems to get a SIGTERM message04:57
saliakActionParsnip : so i feel like I should be able to do this the right way, using init.d scripts.  so I made one that starts the daemon when i call it manually, but when I boot up, there's no sign of it ever running.  what are the log files that would help debug that?04:58

vivanovhow to set keyboard hotkeys in oneiric ?05:47
e_t_billy2007: OK. That's why it's not working now. The virtualbox-ose version is only at 4.0.4 while the one from Oracle is 4.0.10. It won't replace a newer version with an older version.05:47
zeroedoutah.... um, you can set something in /etc/hosts to redirect it to another ip......... I think05:47

crackerjackzDasEi, pidof htop returns nothing05:48
olskolirchost.deny zeroedout ?05:48

upgrdmanhow do i verify my ethernet card is running in gigabit mode? file transfers are topping out at around 11 - 12MB with a gigabit router and other box with known gigabit ethernet05:49
e_t_billy2007: Download it again, then "sudo dpkg -i /path/to/downloaded/file"05:49
DasEiif htop isn't running, it will have no pid, and yes more comfortable top05:49
zeroedoutolskolirc: i belive hosts.deny is for denying hosts accessing your machine. you want an entry in /etc/hosts that redirects querys from xxx.com to $null05:50
billy2007i dont need to uninstall the old version again do i05:50
erle-upgrdman, you will get a gigabit transfer rate only under perfect conditions (good cable etc.)05:50
crackerjackzDasEi, thanks05:50
erle-upgrdman, "gigabit" is just the name of the new standard, not a guarantee of transfer rate05:50
e_t_billy2007: It wouldn't hurt to do so, just to be safe.05:50
DasEicrackerjackz: if you killed it, run : sudo dpkg --configure -a05:50
olskolirchow would I make that look zeroedout please?05:50
olskolircdirect it back to adobe lol zeroedout05:51
erle-upgrdman, you can see that you have a gigabit card by connecting two cards directly without special cables05:51
crackerjackzDasEi, okay, and what does that do?05:51
DasEicrackerjackz: checks for dpkg state, as you interupted in unkwon state for now05:52
upgrdmanerle-, i know but its topping out at almost exactly 100Mb05:52
realjoedoes lucid run on zacate boards?05:52

e_t_olskolirc: sudo bash -c "echo mpsnare.iesnare.com >> /etc/hosts" Be sure to use TWO > characters.05:53
DasEicrackerjackz: no, you could check the logs though, mostly something wrong with network05:53
olskolircthanks :-) e_t_05:54
crackerjackzDasEi, that makes sense actually im not sure why but my net keeps flaking out.. took me like 15 minutes to download xchat but it fluctuates.. i think its my router05:54

MK``Ever since I upgraded to 11.04, file opening has been a bit off. If I try to open a file of unknown type, instead of sending me to select a program, it throws an error and says "not a folder", but I never set Nautilus as default to open unknown files. Additionally, whenever I download something with Firefox, I can't open it from Firefox's Download window, it throws the same error, even if the type is known.05:58
ubottuWe do not support XAMPP installs here. Please use the LAMP stack that is in our repositories; see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP for more information.05:58

MK``And on top of all that, whenever I do open a file or folder, the "Opening [folder]..." thing that gets to the taskbar lasts way too long, long after it has successfully opened. I can close the folder before the "Opening..." message goes away.05:59
olskolircblock mpsnare.iesnare.com from anywhere else?  /etc/hosts.deny?06:00

baldarishey why is sudo In -s used?06:01
ActionParsnipHapsbana1: do you mean ln -s06:01
crackerjackzis there a way to make sudo use a different password rather than the same password i login with?06:01
baldarisooh thats a l no I lol, my bad06:01
ActionParsnipHapsbana1: it makes a symbolic link to a file, its like a windows shortcut but more powerful06:02
e_t_olskolirc: hosts.deny is something different. The entry in /etc/hosts will thoroughly kill the website from that computer.06:02
olskolircthanks e_t_06:02
e_t_olskolirc: When looking up a website, the computer consults /etc/hosts BEFORE looking at DNS, so giving the entry there will prevent it from loading.06:03

ubuntu24234is ext4 still unstable sometimes or is it good to use06:11
Lancelotbrandon_: open the terminal, run sudo nvidia-settings. Under Display Configuration you can enable the other monitor. I'm guessing you just want an extended desktop. Enable it in twinview mode.06:11
billy2007e_t_,  this is result from dpkg command06:11
JoeR1__ext4 has stabilty issues?06:11
e_t_billy2007: Spelling or typing errors are most likely. Linux is cAsE sensitive, so "downloads" is different from "Downloads".06:12

billy2007when burning a dick do i need to wait for image checksum or can i remove disk06:58
nit-witbilly2007, are you using brasero?06:58
e_t_Waiting for the checksum helps to avoid coasters.06:59
billy2007nit-wit, no riht clciked and selected burn06:59
ActionParsnipbilly2007: i'd let it finish so you know the burn is good06:59
billy2007e_t_, what are coasters and il let it finish just to be sure it going to take an hour :(07:00
nit-witbilly2007, it's using brasero then turn off the md5sum plugins , if you don't need that function.07:00
wildgoosebilly2007, Bad cd burns can be used as coasters.07:00
e_t_"coasters" are mis-burned disks that are good for little else but putting under drinks.07:00
ActionParsnipbilly2007: coasters are little mats you put cups and similar on07:01

ubuntu24234Ok I partitioned my hard drive using gparted and now have a 80 gb ext 4 partition, how do I get ubuntu to install on that partition07:01
ActionParsnipOr make cat toys from :-)07:02
billy2007ActionParsnip, lmao haha07:02
glebihanubuntu24234, During installation, select this partition to be mounted on "/"07:02
ubuntu24234glebihan: select it for the partition for the bootloader?07:03
subhcan u tell me how to get initd demon07:04
ActionParsnipubuntu24234: ubuntu should use 2 partitions. / and swap. Use custom partitioning and you can manipulate the space07:04
afatywildbat: Thank you very much.07:04
glebihanubuntu24234, no the bootloader will be automatically configured based on the partitions you choose to install your system on07:04
afatyafaty@afaty-laptop ~/Downloads/system_status $ enca -L zh_CN Readme.txt Simplified Chinese National Standard; GB231207:04
subhhi can u tell me about initd07:04
afatyenca is OK07:04
wildbatafaty: your welcome ~07:04
glebihanubuntu24234, you just have to choose the mount point for each partition you want to use, the one for the system being mounted on "/"07:05
ActionParsnipEnca looks smart07:05
wildbatafaty: still not perfect ~ use UTF8 ~ ! even in windows ;p ~ (OT: use Notepad++ WIN$)07:05
ubuntu24234glebihan: I don't understand, I am at this part http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/89/screenshothhq.png/ and there is no way to set the / thing07:06
bhaveshActionParsnip: ehm is there something wrong with my graphics card or compiz then?07:07
glebihanubuntu24234, select your 80GB partition, click "Change..." then select "Use as ext-4" and set "/" as mount point07:07
glebihanubuntu24234, *ext-3*07:08
ubuntu24234glebihan: wait so not ext407:08
ActionParsnipbhavesh: after the hang, run:  dmesg | tail    it may give clues07:08
glebihanubuntu24234, which one of the partitions do you want to install on ?07:08
ubuntu24234the ext4 one07:09
glebihanubuntu24234, I don't see it on your screenshot, but in this case it's "Use as ext4"07:09
bhaveshActionParsnip: aha it gave me some numbers! and shows some settings07:09
AlexDevilLXcan i put intel i7 on asus m3a76-cm?07:10
ubuntu24234glebihan: oh excuse me I miss spoke ext3 you were right07:10
afatywildbat: Now been completely resolved, I hate windows, I know a lot of file editing software can solve, but I wanted to use under linux command to resolve. enca is nice.07:10
ActionParsnipbhavesh: use the Internet to see what it means :-)07:10
glebihanubuntu24234, then "Use as ext3" :)07:10
bhaveshActinParsnip: ok07:10
ActionParsnipAlexDevilLX: ask in ##hardware this is ubuntu support07:11
bhaveshActionParsnip: btw: http://i.imgur.com/zakF0.png07:11
ubuntu24234glebihan: so like this http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/813/screenshot2zu.png/ ?07:11
glebihanubuntu24234, yes07:11
ubuntu24234ok the installer is now saying I need a swap partition, can't it just use the ext3 partition?07:13
glebihanubuntu24234, no the swap must be on its own partition07:14
ActionParsnipbhavesh: in future, pastebin text if you want to show text. Pasting an image isn't necessary at all07:14
bhaveshActionParsnip: ok. I feel pasting image is easier,07:14
bhaveshive to just drag and drop it..07:14
ubuntu24234glebihan: so ubuntu  just can't create a file on the partition and use that as swap? dang. Do i need a swap partition with 3 gb ram?07:14
ActionParsnipbhavesh: plus if you look at the image the text is illegible07:15
ActionParsnipubuntu24234: do you want to be able to hibernate?07:15
glebihanubuntu24234, yes it's highly recommended. the swap partition should be about the same size as your RAM07:15
ubuntu24234ActionParsnip: Yes07:16
ubuntu24234glebihan: ok is there any way to have it just use a file, like windows07:16
ActionParsnipubuntu24234: then you will need 3Gb of swap07:16
glebihanubuntu24234, no07:16
ActionParsnipubuntu24234: sure you can use a swapfile but keeping swap to itself is good (same in windows too)07:17
glebihanActionParsnip, how would you do that ?07:18
ubuntu24234ActionParsnip: What would be the advatages of an actual swap file and if so is it ok that I use a logical partition not a primary one because I ran out of primary partitions07:18
ActionParsnip!swap | glebihan07:19
ubottuglebihan: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info07:19

Additionally, whenever I download something with Firefox, I can't open it from Firefox's Download window, it throws the same error, even if the type is known.08:27
MK``And on top of all that, whenever I do open a file or folder, the "Opening [folder]..." thing that gets to the taskbar lasts way too long, long after it has successfully opened. I can close the folder before the "Opening..." message goes away.08:27
MK``I won't even go into my other problems at the moment, but how can I restore Ubuntu to, at least, prompt me to select a program when file type is unknown?08:27

shaibnhello :) i'm trying to install my linux driver for a realtek 8168 driver. I did 'make clean modules' -> 'make install' -> 'depmod -a' -> 'insmod ./src/r8168.ko' ; and it all went fine. but after I reboot, it doesn't load the driver automatically. How can I make this work automatically?08:27
mikubuntuDasEi :: sudo apt-get install hplip-cups hplip-gui COMPLETED08:29
mikubuntuDasEi should i run :: sudo modprobe hpcups && sudo service cups restart :: NOW?08:30
glebihanIleden, from what I've read, xfce4-power-manager doesn't seem to control the network adapters, do I guess your problem is bios/hardware related08:31
ubuntu24234mikubuntu: DasEi left08:32
Iledenglebihan: the irregular interval would suggest it's not a power manager thing08:32
glebihanIleden, right08:33

mikubuntunow i'm lost ;p08:34
kubancis ubuntu support good for USB/IDE-SATA adapters08:35
DistroJockeymikubuntu: "sudo modprobe hpcups && sudo service cups restart" just loads that module and restarts the print service, you can run it anytime (but best not to run it when printing)08:36
asfggHello. I recently installed ubuntu 11.04. Had this certain issue with my gpu freezing the x, so I am using classic with no effects which is working. My problem is however, that my second monitor is showing wrong. Half of the screen is showing primary monitor and half is showing only the secondary. the resoltuoins are set as what is optimal for both08:36
mikubuntuDistroJockey: i'm not sure why he told me to run it08:37

Dr-Zeussquick question - best ubuntu distro for netbook with amd c50/fusion (acer one 522)? 10.04-netbook386? or would a 64 distro  be better? (no c50 support info) thoughts?08:53
truepurpleglebihan: It doesnt install anything though?08:53
glebihantruepurple, it only installs the medibuntu-keyring package08:54
bobweaverDr-Zeuss, what is the ram08:54
Dr-Zeuss1gb shared08:54
truepurpleSo look in the package manager or the software center?08:54
bobweaverDr-Zeuss, I would go 3208:54
Dr-Zeusscrappy eh? need to drop  4gb in08:55
bobweaverDr-Zeuss, untill I got up to 3 gigs of ran08:55
bobweaverDr-Zeuss, untill I got up to 3 gigs of ram*08:55
bobweaverDr-Zeuss, that is just my option08:56
Dr-Zeusssounds like we are on the same wavelength, just couldnt find info if 64 would use the c50 better (it is a dual core 64bit cpu) but it fairly new.08:56
DistroJockeymikubuntu: At any rate, I doubt you will find color calibration for it in Linux. As you said, it's been sitting idle for a year and the cartridges are probably solid ink now. Best to get new cartridges. Then again, probably cheaper to buy a new printer.08:56
mikubuntuDistroJockey: sorry, deskjet f 4480 .. i definitely have something wrong because i see others in the forums have solved there problems and report perfect operation08:57

DistroJockeymikubuntu: Yeah, the included drivers should be fine. Pretty sure your cartridges are dead.08:59
alqaysari need any program it can repair bad sectors08:59
Dr-Zeussbobweaver: Thanks08:59
pRoV7x how can i use drivers from Windows with Uubuntu, please08:59
mikubuntuDistroJockey: ya, thats prolly it, i wonder if they can be refilled08:59
mikubuntui haven't had a printer for 5 years so i haven't had any printing issues ... lols09:00
DistroJockeymikubuntu: As I said, it's probably cheaper to buy a new printer.09:00
bobweaveralqaysar, if your harddrive is going out then it is you could try and fix it with fsck -y09:00
mikubuntui think i'm remembering why i din't have a printer09:00
DistroJockeymikubuntu:  hehe. Yeah, I don't.09:01
mikubuntucauses sharp pain in the a** , just below the wallet09:01
bobweaveralqaysar, but if it is going out back up and get a new one09:01
alqaysarits USB harddrive , how can you used this tool?09:01
bobweaveralqaysar, never mind I thought that you where talking about a harddrive09:02
alqaysaris open it but its slow09:02
mikubuntuthanks guys for all your help, i'll check on cartridges in the morning09:02
bobweaveralqaysar, are you trying to get lost info out of it data recovery ?09:03
DistroJockeymikubuntu: no and good luck09:03
DistroJockeymikubuntu: np^09:03
buggyerhi, any recommendation on a distributed/replication file system?09:03
bobweaverbuggyer, remastersys09:03
alqaysari want to fix the bad sectors09:04
bobweaveralqaysar, 0.oI dont know if you can do that09:04
alqaysarthere is some programs in windows i try it, but it dosent work09:05
buggyerbobweaver: im looking for a kind of live replicating fs. i want to have specific data on 2 machines, as failover.09:05
alqaysarnow i want to fix it in ubuntu09:05
bobweaverbuggyer, yes remastersys http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/09:06
alqaysarany idea?09:06
DistroJockeyalqaysar: Google gave me this post, might be worth a look: http://www.overclock.net/linux-unix/588130-ubuntu-9-10-failing-hard-disk.html09:07
bobweaverbuggyer, It makes a live cd/dvd of you system09:07
DistroJockeyalqaysar: badblocks  might do what you want. The hard drive will get worse though, so best to replace it09:07
buggyerbobweaver: yeah, i read that. but i'd like to have some server-client stuff. means if i copy a file to server1 it should appear on server2 also.09:08
bobweaveralqaysar, I agree with DistroJockey09:08
bobweaverbuggyer, Ohh09:08
alqaysarthank you guys :D09:09
DistroJockeyalqaysar: You're welcome :)09:10
onatshey guys09:10
onatswhat's the term called again when i want a partition to be expandable by adding disks?09:10
buggyerbobweaver: drbd looks good.09:10
bobweaverbuggyer, yeah I am not much of a cluster guy one day...09:11
buggyerbobweaver: i'm trying to avoid to have lots of boxes just for security reasons. i have master slave setup already running. except some files i need on both as failover. thats the reason why im asking. :)09:12
DistroJockeyonats: An LVM Volume Group maybe:  http://www.linux.com/archive/feature/11864509:14
onatsthere we go!09:15
onatsthanks DistroJockey09:15
DistroJockeyonats: Not a big fan of LVM, but it may be worth looking at09:15
onatsDistroJockey, why so?09:15
onatsits just hard to setup right?09:15
onatsno known disadvantages?09:15
DistroJockeyonats: if a drive dies so does all your data probably09:16
onatsunless i have raid 109:16
e_t_LVM has many of the risks of raid0.09:16
onatsbut i have raid 1 hardware09:16
DistroJockeyonats: yeah, what e_t_ said :)09:16
DistroJockeyonats: you might be better off adding a disk and mounting it as a new directory in your /home (pretty sure you can do that)09:18
onatswell im going to provision a partition for mail storage09:18
onatsthus, i need an expandable volume09:18
e_t_On top of raid1 hardware, it should be OK. It is harder to configure, and harder to recover in case of serious errors. About the only advantage is the ability to concatenate disk space and grow or shrink volumes.09:18
onatse_t_, with a mail storage space (software manages)09:19
onatsi think its best to use expandable volumes09:20
DistroJockeyonats: adding the drive and redirecting what you need to it would be safest I think. Like placing /var on a new volume for example.09:20
LoqusCan I create  a number of virtual Ethernet Interfaces which uses the same physical Ethernet Adaptor, but each have a different MAC address?09:22
IledenHi! I'm experiencing a weird problem. My computer loses its network connection after random amount (~20min) of inactivity, and any user activity (even moving mouse) brings it back up. This is problematic because I'm trying to do a long network file transfer on it... Any ideas what might be causing this OR how to hack around the problem, by e.g. mimicking user behaviour with a script or something like that?09:22
LoqusIleden, what's your platform (hardware type)09:23
IledenLoqus: some Compaq desktop, running xubuntu09:24
cyphahow do I make a file writable?09:24
cypha(remove read-only)09:24
LoqusCypha google for CHMOD09:24
buggyerwhats a good method to create a container file to host a separate filesystem on an already used filesystem? like this /DATA (ext3); /DATA/container mounted on /DATA2 (ext3)09:24
Iledencypha: right click, and use "permissions" to allow it.09:24
o0o0can it be power management?09:24
Iledencypha: or from terminal: chmod u+w filename09:25
LoqusIleden, it sounds like power modes... so the PC goes into power saving if unused for a while.09:25
IledenLoqus: yeah, i thought so... but the interval is random!09:25
Loquso0o0... snap ;')09:25
LoqusRandom? It's hard to know what your PC might considder as "inactivity"... hoe random is random? I mean, is it always longer than 10 minutes and never more than 20?09:25
unopbuggyer, you can use a loop device on pretty much any of the standard filesystems..  I'd think this might do.     mount -o loop -t ext3 your_ext3_file /path/to/directory09:26
IledenLoqus: so far i've measured roughly 15 mins, 40 mins and 20 mins09:26
Loqus...definately looks like PM settings. Can you check when it goes offline if the link LEDs on your network card, and whatever you're plugged into stay up?09:26
Loqus...also, look out for flashing turnign into solid lights on the activity LED of your adaptor.09:27
buggyerunop: is it possible to give the loopback device a specific size? if i crate a 500GB big file, would the loopback device then also have 500gb of size?09:27
IledenLoqus: I'll check at next disconnect09:27
Loquscool... let me know, I'll be Idling all day.09:27
e_t_buggyer: dd if=/dev/zero of=/DATA/container bs=1024 count=X where X is how many kilobytes you want the file to be. Then mke2fs /DATA/container.09:27
cyphathank Ileden09:28
LoqusHas anyone succcessfully created  a number of virtual Ethernet Interfaces which use the same physical Ethernet Adaptor, but each have a different MAC address?09:28
icerootLoqus: if i am correct you cant change the mac-adress because eth0 is used for the traffic instead of eth0:1 so the mac from eth0 is used09:28
Gorrodoes anyone know how to move a file from one directory to another ?09:29
icerootGorro: mv09:29
mosx1hi all, having a breakdown here trying to get a remote desktop session to an 11.04 desktop box  over ssh09:29
e_t_Loqus: I *think* that only the priciest NICs allow multiple MAC addresses.09:29
mosx1from a win box09:29
mosx1using putt09:29
icerootGorro: mv file /new/path/09:29
buggyere_t_: thanks a lot, i think i can use this method. :)09:29
cyphaIleden, it didn't work09:30
Gorrookay how do i find out the full directory in putty?09:30
Iledencypha: no?09:30
cyphastill says readonly file09:30
Iledencypha: hm, could be you're not the owner of the file09:30
mosx1I run this command on the ubuntu box: x11vnc -safer -localhost -nopw -once -display :009:30
cyphai did sudo chmod u+w inputrc09:30
mosx1then attempt to connect to localhost:0 using vncviewer (version 4.1.2)09:31
Gorrois there a command to fing the true full directory09:31
alqaysarguys , how can i used the terminal form Ubuntu LiveCD?09:31
Iledencypha: if you're not the owner, there two choices: change the owner of the file, or give write permissions to everyone (u+ only gives to the owner)09:31
cyphahow do I change the owner?09:32
wh1zz0Hi guys.. please pardon my stupid question...09:32
Gorrocypha use chmod09:32
wh1zz0How can I change my box name?09:32
crackerjackzi am looking for a text editior similiar to notepad plus plus for linux09:32
Iledencypha: chown username filename09:32
ortsvorstehercypha, you can use chown to change owner09:32
crackerjackzany ideas?09:33
Iledencypha: but be careful... it could break something09:33
LoqusThanks iceroot, e_t_, I think you're right... for the scenario VLANs is the obvious way to go, but I want to make sure I've explored all options. I would ofc like to have 6 network cards, but some things just aren't practivcal on an embedded system ;)09:33
Gorrocrackerjackz you can try pico09:33
Iledencypha: since after that the original owner no longer has access to the file09:33
almoxarifewh1zz0: change the 'host' file to something else in /etc09:33
ortsvorstehercypha, do you want to modify /etc/inputrc with ownership and mode?09:34
cyphaIleden, cool, that worked09:34
crackerjackzGorro, isn't that nano?09:34
cyphabut I don't know who the original owner was09:34
cyphaand is it possible to have multiple owners?09:34
Gorroyes you can allow who you want to be the owner09:34
Iledencypha: a file can have one owner, and one group (which can contain multiple users)09:34
crackerjackzi am looking for a text editor that doesn't make a mess of my XTHML, CSS, PHP.. etc09:35
cyphaok, well, hopefully it didn't break anything09:35
cyphaguess I'll find out09:35
Phylockcrackerjackz - take a look at http://linuxappfinder.com/09:35
Iledencypha: yeah, knowing the original owner would've been part of the being careful part... :)09:35
wh1zz0almoxarife: thanks but not sure I clearly get you...which of the files precisely?09:35
e_t_wh1zz0: you have to change both /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts09:35

mosx1oh sorry - didn't see it was on a usb10:19
mosx1my mistake10:19
Dr_Willisejo,  bad iso, tool making the iso messed up. .. issue btween the kind of usb and pc...10:19
ejoThe ISO worked fine for installing on another pc last week.10:20
ejoYeah maybe I'll just try another port (that would be too easy/weird but i'll try it of course)10:20
Dr_Willisejo,  test it with some other pc's, try remaking it with some other iso->usb tools , try a differnt usb stick10:20
csdwifiis there a shortcut C^ or M^ command for desktop switcher?10:20
Dr_Willisin the next release i  hear you are supposed to be able to 'dd' the iso to theusb stick. so hopefully that will remove a lot of problems.  but thats for the future10:21
ejoThe only other thing I can think of is, the two hard drives in this PC used to be a striped RAID array; I deleted the array and reset the BIOS so that I would have a clean slate to work with, and I don't know if anything about that operation could have interfered with Live CD operation.10:21
Dr_Williscsdwifi,  clarify what you are meaning.10:21
gryGuest39412: Do you want to continue using Unity after removing that?10:21
ejoDr_Willis: like I said, it tested fine with another PC, it installed perfectly10:21
csdwifidr_willis : I mean control or alt command10:21

Guest39412do you know a way?10:23
Guest39412anybody know a way?10:23
Dr_Willisthers proberly a way Guest39412  but i dont know it off hand. check the askubuntu.com site would be my first stop.10:24
Dr_Williscsdwifi,  that would be a setting you could setup via the CCSM tool for  'compiz'10:25
ubottuTo enable advanced customization of desktop effects in Ubuntu: install 'compizconfig-settings-manager' or 'simple-ccsm'. If you install the latter, a new option will appear in your appearance properties - See also !compiz - Help in #compiz10:25

doc-donkey i also have a bunch of QT4 files to download, im not into programing and was wondering if i could discard those updates since i never use the QT4 programing tools. are they usefull to the system even tho i never open the programs ?12:34

ubottuJoAnneOminous: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades12:34

bazhangJoAnneOminous, theres a eolupgrades link in there12:36
recon69_lapcsdwifi: no, you can use patch to apply the patch file, or edit the file /b/source/lib/replace/autoconfig-2.60.m4 and manualy add the patch changes12:36
gestI test malware in virtual machines so if a virus slips onto Linux it can hurt any of my windows pcs on my wifi network right?12:36
tsimpsongest: unless you install wine, and run the "virus" manually, you can't run windows programs in non-windows environments12:36
IledenDark_owl: joking? i've only made one joke, that was about your all-caps message.12:36

gestby using the NAT adapter12:38

jamesiarmes_I am trying to set up an Ubuntu 10.10 server running apache 2.2.16 and PHP 2.3. When I browse go to the web browser using HTTPS I get the following in the log repeatedly: "[Thu Jul 14 08:31:51 2011] [notice] child pid xxxx exit signal Segmentation fault (11)". If I go to a page that doesn't include anything (images, css, etc.) everything loads fine. If I go to a page that has some includes then I occasionally get a file (usually a CSS or image file) that12:38
jamesiarmes_ fails to load. I am using mod_gnutls.12:38
gest I just wanted to make sure if I downloaded a windows virus on ubuntu t would affect my windows only pcs on the network12:38
bazhangbilly2007, what version of ubuntu is the iso12:38
dydPici: thank you12:39
ichbinderhm, nobody has a hint? Maybe some buzz words I could search for? The actual message didn't bring up something that was helpful to me... :-/12:39
billy2007bazhang it isnt an ubuntu iso12:39
bazhangbilly2007, what is it12:39
IledenDark_owl: if I were you, I'd try using the windows driver via ndiswrapper12:39
billy2007winxp ut it says in help file it will burn all bootable os12:40
recon69_lapgest: don't work like that. the virus has to get run on the pc. your linux box can't do that12:40
IledenDark_owl: or maybe see if the linux driver (which is a kernel module) has some options to try12:40
wslayerIdleOne: i didn't install windows, there's only ubuntu on the machine12:40
gestoh ok12:40
wslayerIdleOne: anyway thanks12:40
recon69_lapcsdwifi: you following what i saying about the patch file12:40
compdocjamesiarmes_, is it an old computer? maybe you have a hardware issue12:40
mosx1how do i get privilidges on the desktop gui 11.04 ?12:41
tsimpsonichbinder: password login is enabled by default, so someone probably put "PasswordAuthentication no" in /etc/ssh/sshd_config on the remote system12:41
mosx1equiv of sudo - where it puts the key icon at top of screen12:41
Dark_owlIleden: and to check that options ?12:41
IdleOnewslayer: the links provided will still help you to reinstall grub. How or why grub is gone doesn't really matter the point is you need to install it.12:41
tyler_dI used to "zoom out" and see all of the desktops using 'super+e' but now it does not work, anyone tell me how to get that functinoality back please?12:41
tsimpsonmosx1: I think you mean gksudo12:42
jamesiarmes_compdoc: I've tried it on a server we have in the office that is about 2 years old and I've tried it on Amazon's EC212:42
JoAnneOminousDo I just append that EOL upgrade sources.list to my /etc/apt/sources.list, or should I replace the whole thing?12:42
bazhangtyler_d, using unity?12:42
tyler_dbazhang: yes12:42
csdwifirecon69_lap, i'm trying to sort it out.  not sure what version of autoconf i have but what I want to do is remove whatever version it is and do a ./config make and make install for 2.68 to make sure i'm current. the patch you linked to said it was a workaround for 2.6.3, i'm thinking it's fixed in 2.6.812:42
ichbindertsimpson: ah, ok... hm, is there a way to have the passwords not clear text?12:42
compdocjamesiarmes_, then that rules out hardware12:42
tsimpsonJoAnneOminous: replace the current repositories with those from old-releases.ubuntu.com12:42
bazhangtyler_d, what about hitting the workspaces icon12:42
tyler_dbazhang: want the keyboard shortcut if its possible please12:42
tsimpsonichbinder: "clear text" is a bit misleading, the password is transmitted encrypted12:43
IledenDark_owl: unfortunately i have to go now. ask someone about how to find out what kernel module your wifi card is using ,and how to check if it has options12:43
bazhangtyler_d, no idea, sorry12:43
tyler_dbazhang: doesn't have to be win+e12:43
IledenDark_owl: i would help you but i really have to go.12:43
Dark_owlo>k bro THANX ANY WAY :)12:43
bazhangtyler_d, probably set in ccsm though12:43
ichbindertsimpson: within the tunnel, correct?12:43
recon69_lapcsdwifi:  what i'm saying is there is a bug in the code you downloaded, you need to edit the m4 config file in samba's build tree12:43
tsimpsonichbinder: yes, so it can't be snooped over the network12:43
tyler_dbazhang: k, I will keep googling ;) thanks anyways12:43
mosx1what i mean is...if i go looking in /etc/apache2/conf.d/ any files i open are read only12:43
ichbindertsimpson: like: using the keys, the tunnel is established and encrypted. The password is then needed for login, kind of12:44
bazhangtyler_d, I'd ask in #compiz as well12:44
csdwifioh oh oh... i see now.  i'll go check the source file indicated in the patch then12:44
bazhangDark_owl, whats the chipset for your nic12:44
onlawhere can I find the preferences and adminstrative task handling with unity ? like I want to configure my monitor settings and login settings, but in unity menu I can only add apps on it12:44
desssdli: thank you mate, installed system and running 11.04 now :)!12:44
ichbindertsimpson: ah, thanks! Good to know. I put it there myself, but was mentally too unflexible to realize, that that might be the problem... thanks for teaching! :)12:44
Dark_owlbazhang Realtek12:44
bazhangonla, system settings ---launcher and menus , perhaps12:45
tsimpsonichbinder: the raw computer<->computer connection is established, then encrypted, then data (including passwords) is sent12:45
bazhangDark_owl, exact model name and number please12:45
tsimpsonichbinder: you aren't the first person to be confused by the poor wording of that option12:45
bazhangDark_owl, usb or pci12:45
mosx1if i go looking in /etc/apache2/conf.d/ any files i open are read only - how can i open them as root ?12:45
Dark_owlbazhang: usb12:45
recon69_lapmosx1: you could use  sudo nautilus on command line. be careful though12:45
onlabazhang, ah thanks12:45
bazhanglsusb to paste.ubuntu.com Dark_owl12:46
ichbindertsimpson: yeah, that's what confused me... i mean, it's saying tunneled, but it should be capitalized :D12:46
Dark_owlbazhang: i works with airecrack and kismet12:46
Sidewinder1mosx1, gksudo gedit.12:46
Dark_owlbazhang: it works with airecrack and kismet12:46
bazhangDark_owl, so whats your issue12:46
BluesKajJoAnneOminous, Upgrading the sources.list to new development release Make sure you edit it for ppas first  'sudo sed -i 's/lucid/maverick/' /etc/apt/sources.list , Warning , this can be risky,12:46
Sidewinder1mosx1, Or gksudo nautilus.12:46
recon69_lapSidewinder1: opps, keep forgetting about the gksudo12:46
ichbinderonla: it should be where you can turn of your computer12:47
ichbinderonla: clicking on the power button, it should open a menu. At the bottom, you can find "System Settings"12:47
BluesKajJoAnneOminous, substitute the proper versions in (/lucid/maverick/)12:47
ichbinderonla: or do what I did: http://scottlinux.com/2011/03/05/ubuntu-11-04-change-from-unity-to-classic-gnome/ :)12:47
onlaI found the place now.. went to the "monitors" and my system is not finding the names for my monitors. it just says "unknown" and when I try to not mirror the 2 monitors, it doesn't work12:47
Dark_owlbazhang: i conntect the wifi well and can open only one page then it sops responsing and i must reconnect again every 3 or 4 seconds12:48
ichbinderonla: (you can see the button there :) )12:48
onlayup thx...12:48
Sidewinder1mosx1, You may wish to read: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo12:48
ichbinderonla: then, I guess, it's a problem with the X-config, etc... only solo-monitor, so can't really help. Sorry12:48
PiciBluesKaj: I don't see how that is helpful.12:48
PiciJoAnneOminous: Please follow tsimpson's advice. I don't think that what BluesKaj is telling you will do what you want.12:49
csdwifiaha, pesky pesky.  recon69_lap - gnu m4 wasn't installed, i'm going to see if that solved anything12:49
Dark_owlbazhang: i conntect the wifi well and can open only one page then it sops responsing and i must reconnect again every 3 or 4 seconds12:50
BluesKajPici,  : JoAnneOminous> Do I just append that EOL upgrade sources.list to my /etc/apt/sources.list, or should I replace the whole thing?i12:50
BluesKajPici,  it's an option12:50
bazhangDark_owl, dont see how that is "working well"12:50
tsimpsonBluesKaj: your advice doesn't answer that, changing release wasn't the question12:51
PiciBluesKaj: tsimpson answered 4 minutes before you did.  Simply doing s/oldrelease/newrelease/g is not the same as replacing archive.ubuntu.com with old-releases.ubuntu.com12:51
bazhangDark_owl, try #aircrack-ng12:51
tsimpsonBluesKaj: and simply replacing and old release name with a new one is not a good way to upgrade, and in fact will likely break badly12:51
Will123456hey guys. is it a bad idea to share /tmp and /var partitions between operating systems?12:52
BluesKajtsimpson, I did say it was risky12:52
recon69_lapDark_owl:  get the ip address of both machines and try ping them12:52
Dark_owl<bazhang> bro it connect WELL but can't browse internet12:52
tsimpsonBluesKaj: there is "risky" and there is "likely to require you to scrap everything and do a fresh install"12:52
BluesKajtsimpson, looks like that may be the case anyway12:53
csdwifiwhen i'm installing a package like autoconf do i have to specifiy it to my /usr/bin/ directory?12:53
billy2007bazhang any ideas why startup disk creator wont load my iso12:53
bazhangbilly2007, where does xp hand out iso?12:53
JoAnneOminousOkay...I'm a bit confused...12:53
tsimpsonBluesKaj: no, there is a clear and documented procedure from upgrading from dapper to hardy12:53
bazhangJoAnneOminous, follow tsimpson 's advice please12:54
recon69_lapcsdwifi: i'd just go with the default.12:54
JoAnneOminousI did what it says to do on the EOL upgrade page, and it's upgrading to karmic...which is also EOL?12:54
* BluesKaj backs off12:54
JoAnneOminousbazhang: I am, I think...12:55
tsimpsonJoAnneOminous: did you run the command with "/etc/update-manager/release-upgrades" in it?12:55
csdwifiwell, i successfuly ( i think) ran ./config ; make ; make install but i'm getting :   bash: /usr/bin/autoconf: No such file or directory.12:55
tsimpsonJoAnneOminous: make sure that /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades has "Prompt=lts", then re-try the upgrade12:55
recon69_lapcsdwifi: you need to read the output of each comman to make sure they worked12:55
JoAnneOminoustsimpson: Yes, I ran that...12:55
JoAnneOminousOkay...I'll check...12:56
tsimpsonJoAnneOminous: you should not when you want to run LTS -> LTS upgrades, I'll fix that documentation12:56
Dark_owl<bazhang> bro it connect WELL but can't browse internet12:56
recon69_lapcsdwifi: the last bit will tell you if the worked correct12:56
bazhangDark_owl, no idea about aircrack-ng and kismet, sorry12:56
Dark_owl<bazhang> not that but i can't browse internet using my wifi on ubuntu12:57
csdwifirecon69_lap, http://paste.ubuntu.com/644072/12:58
JoAnneOminoustsimpson: Okay...I updated the /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades with the Prompt=lts...but the other upgrade to karmic is ongoing...should I not-interrupt it?12:58
tsimpsonJoAnneOminous: as long as it hasn't started downloading, installing or removing packages, you can interrupt it12:58
JoAnneOminoustsimpson: I'm pretty certain it is already...I think because I told it to...12:59
JoAnneOminoustsimpson: It's performing a number of "Get" operations12:59
tsimpsonJoAnneOminous: then I guess you'll just have to wait, and upgrade again when it's complete13:00
JoAnneOminoustsimpson: Okay...it's only another 20 minutes or so...thanks for your help...13:00
mosx1I have no copy/paste functionality in my VNC Viewer session from Windows to Ubuntu, is it a server side setting ? I'm using x11vnc or is it client side setting ?13:01
csdwifirecon69_lap, i do see some bin files now in my autoconf-2.68/bin directory, should i just manually move them to usr/bin ?13:01
JoAnneOminoustsimpson: So...when it's done do I just re-do the "sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade" and "sudo do-release-upgrade" again with the new /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades ?13:01
csdwifi(they weren't there in the tarball)13:02
recon69_lapcsdwifi: hmm, depends what the files are called.13:02
JoAnneOminoustsimpson: And should I do the "sudo do-release-upgrade" when it's done with the karmic before moving onto the LTS upgrade?13:02
csdwifirecon69_lap : they're autoconf autoheader autom4te autoreconf , all executable13:02
JoAnneOminoustsimpson: (sorry for all the annoying questions)13:03
recon69_lapcsdwifi: no, dont copy them13:03
recon69_laptry 'make -B'13:03
=== zhongguo is now known as blueghost
tsimpsonJoAnneOminous: well do the normal package updates, then you may have to change that file back to "Prompt=normal" (as karmic wasn't LTS), then do-release-upgrade again13:04
csdwifilots of warnings with that one...13:04
recon69_lapcsdwifi: try 'make -B', i dont think it compiled13:04
voozeHey.. I just reinstalled ubuntu 11.04.. but after removing emphaty and installing pidgin insted, when i close pidgin with the (X) it closes down, insted of staying online like IM should.. How can i change this?13:04
recon69_lapcsdwifi: warning dont matter to programmers lol13:04
csdwifiwell it's doing a lot more than last time...13:05
recon69_lapcsdwifi: i forced it to rebuild everything to see if any error happen, you can look at the end to see what it did13:05
th0rvooze: it is an option in Preferences in Pidgin13:05
tyler_danyone else notice when you whitelist 'all' applications with unity that clicking the "default" icons no longer works... you have to click on your name then scroll over to get to them? anyone know how to fix that13:06
CycovinceHello community :)13:06
csdwifiis it normal for it to look like it's just looping?13:06
CycovinceI've got a small problem with Lifera (RSS reader). The launcher included in the messaging menu is gone :(13:07
recon69_lapcsdwifi: yes13:07
recon69_lapcsdwifi: could take a while, depending on you comp13:07
csdwifii see it's starting to do things inside of /usr/bin/  so that is a good sign i guess =)13:07
Ir0nmanI have a problem two folders are showing up as files13:08
Ir0nmanand i cant access them from the browser idk how i broke them13:08
JoAnneOminoustsimpson: When it's done with the downloads I'll run the "do-release-upgrade" (having changed the prompt back to 'normal') and then change it to lts...13:08
recon69_lapcsdwifi: you should see changes though, hope it's not doing anything in /usr/bin though :P13:08
tsimpsonJoAnneOminous: yeah, that should be fine13:09

csdwifier, i think the warning might have been about this..13:10
csdwifinevermind it's done i believe...13:10
JoAnneOminoustsimpson: So, after changing back to Prompt=lts, do I need to reboot or something, or can I just jump into a new round of  "sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade" and "sudo do-release-upgrade"?13:10
th0rvooze: Tools-Preferences-Interface set the system tray icon to show Always13:10
csdwifino errors at the end13:11
recon69_lapcsdwifi: then try make install13:11
voozeth0r, ah thanks alot :)13:11
recon69_lapcsdwifi: read the out put, check the directory is lists for you binnary13:12
csdwifirecon69_lap, such as this = test -z "/usr/local/share/autoconf/autotest" || /bin/mkdir -p "/usr/local/share/autoconf/autotest"13:13
tsimpsonJoAnneOminous: you shouldn't have to reboot, no13:13
csdwifii still can't use autoconf from the command line...13:13
tsimpsonJoAnneOminous: it may be a good idea, to boot into the newer kernel etc, though13:13
recon69_lapcsdwifi: was hoping for 'entering dir xxx, copying file13:13
recon69_lapcsdwifi: past the output13:14

szalhmm..  anyone have an idea what I need to change where if I want to have fsck on boot a little more verbose?  standard option is --quiet, and when fsck checks a partition it only says which one and, "Your disk drives are being checked for errors. This may take some time."..  I'd like to pass the -C option (progress bars) for fsck on boot13:17

Sidewinder1Ir0nman, I'm not really sure what you're saying; a "browser" will usually open files. If you're talking about Nautilus it should be able to open folders and access files. Please elaborate. :-)13:18
Ir0nmanthose are showing like files but they are folders13:18
csdwifiis where i'm running makes from13:18
recon69_lapcsdwifi: though we where trying to make samba, you in the right directory13:19

edbianreachingperfecti: That used to be the case.  Then firefox moved their tmp files.  It is annoying to say the least.13:39
szalfuzzeelumpkins: using what driver? -> 'lspci -v' will show you under "VGA adapter" or whatever it's called13:39
Will123456fuzzeelumpkins: that probably explains why it can't auto detect the native res (just a guess). if you can't use DVI or something like that, i recommend using xrandr to set the resolution13:39

ChesterXbazhang, this package is not in the ubuntu repository - but i can give you the sourceforge link14:01

ChesterXbazhang, as i told you before this package does not form part of any of the ubuntu repository14:07
onelinerthe intended idea was that the update manager would then fetch new nightly builds and update the package for me, and that works fine up to the point where it needs to "authenticate" the source, here the make human repository fails (has no public key) and the gui update manager tells me so, and here is the culprit; the gui update manager warms me that it couldnt check the authenticity of the source, but instead of giving me the option to "continue anyway"14:08
onelinerit simply has a close button14:08
dmsupermanWhat's the new way to send notifications in 11.04? Like notify-send14:09

bazhangChesterX, no idea sorry. you could ask in #aircrack-ng I suppose14:10

ubottuWilcoRogers: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)14:53

Dr_Willistucemiux:  what data14:57
Lmatbyroncoughlin, Right, that's what I did, but only after apt-get ting and uninstalling (which took a lot of time).  It undermines my faith in apt-get, but I suppose that's of  no consequence to Ubuntu.14:57

sowmyacan anybody pl help me out14:58
ortsvorstehertucemiux, if you are not sure, why you do not make a copy of that picture and save it as backup before editing it.14:58
bazhangsowmya, xchat menu network list, edit server, put in channel to autojoin14:58

byroncoughlinLMat it is the program that I use to get software for Ubuntu15:00
bazhangsowmya, in ubuntu xchat, freenode is listed as ubuntu servers15:00
Dr_Willistucemiux: id say its gone15:00
Lmatbyroncoughlin, Ah, no, I don't use it.  I use apt-get .15:01

bazhang!java | Tjololo1215:14
ubottuTjololo12: 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.15:14

bazhang!partner | Tjololo1215:14
ubottuTjololo12: 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" »15:14
airtonixhow was it that you would make dpkg reveal the path it installs each of the files in a deb ?15:15
Tjololo12ah there we are, thank you15:15
Piciairtonix: dpkg -L packagename15:15
bazhangTjololo12, or you can go into synaptic package manager under other software and enable there15:15
Piciairtonix: And the reverse is dpkg -S /path/to/file15:15
Laurenceboh i need to run GoogleEarthLinux.bin15:15
Fulgenciowicd is not finding any wired connnection....why could that be for?¿15:16
tucemiuxTru3fate: ahhh... the answer is samba, apparently you can use samba to access your shared folders which is an over kill for me, I once had that same problem and decided to just host an ubuntu server and store all my files there, windows and ubuntu can access the files without a glitch15:16
LmatHow do I put something on the path?15:16

Eric-Norhi. need helt mount external usb hdd15:18
bazhangEric-Nor, use fstab?15:18
bazhang!fstab | Eric-Nor15:18
ubottuEric-Nor: The /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions15:18
Fulgenciobazhang: when i do ifconfig no eth shown, just lo15:19
bazhangFulgencio, what about sudo ifup eth015:19
Picitucemiux, Lmat: It is initially defined in /etc/environment, but for adding to it for yourself, you should add a PATH=/new/path:$PATH to your own .bashrc (or relevant $SHELL config file)15:19
LmatWhat does bg do?  man bg doesn't work and bg--help isn't very descriptive.15:19

Fulgenciokunji: im working in a cloned machine...where wicd was working properly....it its not on the cloned machine now.15:21
tucemiuxLmat: edit .profile and search for PATH, add the location of your application there BUT if you have your own app you should create it in ~/bin -- anything in there will be seen in your PATH15:21
Tjololo12bazhang: no idea, it's what I found googling for "moodle appliance"15:21
bazhangFulgencio, paste.ubuntu.com with the output of lspci please15:21
Tjololo12any way I can find out?15:21
PiciLmat: Yes, unless you have a reason to add a whole directory to your path, its common to just drop a symlink into something already in your path.15:21
