JohnMnemonicok. tommorow. is that right choice 11.04? or better is 10.?00:33
gmachine_24I was here earlier asking how to move / expand partitions. I did what I thought was correct - but on reboot I get a message error: no such partition and the next line grub rescue > ... this is a dual-boot with Vista and Linux 10.04.LTS and I am on a live CD on the computer in question00:33

ParkerR10.* is bettery because no Unity00:34
ActionParsnipJohnMnemonic: natty is supported after maverick dies, you can boot to ubuntu classic and it will look like maverick00:34
edbiangmachine_24: I can help you update grub.  Mount you ubuntu partition (do you know how to do that?)00:34
Nobgul_ParkerR, unity can be turned off.00:34
fructosePici: Cool, thanks00:34
ActionParsnipParkerR: ubuntu classic is part of Natty, thus no unity00:34
ParkerRI know00:34
ActionParsnipParkerR: JohnMnemonic may also LIKE Unity...00:34
ParkerRIn Ubuntu classic there were some UI elements that didn't line up for me00:35
ActionParsnipParkerR: they may "line up" for the user..00:35
ParkerRWhy I dumped Ubuntu00:35
gmachine_24edbian, yes. but... I did a manual partition when I installed Ubuntu so I have a /boot, / , /home /swap and maybe one more00:35

ParkerRActionParsnip, Ok00:35
Nobgul_ParkerR, Just because you have issues with some thngs does nto mean other people will.00:35
edbiangmachine_24: mount /00:35
ParkerRI didn't say he would00:35
edbiangmachine_24: (and put it in a folder that is easy to type at the cli)00:35
ParkerRI was giving my opinion00:35
ActionParsnipParkerR: you never said that, you said it is better, there was no mention of opinion.00:36

Nobgul_ParkerR, just so i understand, you are in a support channel for ubuntu, but yet you don't use ubuntu?  ParkerR, do you need pecific help related to ubuntu?00:37
ParkerRI help where I can00:37
Picifructose: sorry, I'm not sure00:37

gmachine_24edbian - OK, I believe I am there00:40
gmachine_24should I cd into that directory?00:40
edbiangmachine_24: you don't have to cd to it00:40
gmachine_24edbian, ok, great. what next?00:40
edbiangmachine_24: We need to reinstall grub.  what hdd is the one you boot?  /dev/sda?00:40
ActionParsnipDirus: I thoughtit did..00:40
fructosePici: Thanks anyway00:40
gmachine_24edbian, yes, /dev/sda6 if it matters00:40
DirusActionParsnip: I guess I never tried taking the cd out, does it do it by default?00:41
gmachine_24edbian, but I think the boot partition is elsewhere00:41
edbiangmachine_24: Where did you mount your ubuntu /  on the live CD?  I need to ask all this to show you the command without errors :)00:41
ActionParsnipDirus: you will still need the CD in but the installer runs in RAM00:41
edbiangmachine_24: You have a separate boot?  Ooh I think I missed that :P00:41
DirusActionParsnip: oh that's not what I'm looking for00:42
Diruscan the livecd boot to ram?00:42
gmachine_24edbian, no problem. I understand. yeah, a separate boot. but here's something: when I start up gparted nothing has a label00:42
=== meritorious is now known as StrangeCharm
Nobgul_Dirus, i don't think so00:42
edbiangmachine_24: Lables are not important.00:42

edbiangmachine_24: The command we need to run: sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/path/to/boot /dev/sda00:43
Diruswhat is casper? the word is used for other things and google doesn't return relevant results00:44
ActionParsnipDirus: you could make a small partition with the ISO on and grub booting to it. Kinda a lot of work though00:44
Dirusthe internet says it can be done with casper00:44
edbiangmachine_24: Sorry about the mistake!00:46

DirusNobgul_: ah thanks, that sorta helps00:47
Dirusthis is what I found https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BootToRAM00:47
edbiangmachine_24: Here's what's in my /boot  http://paste.ubuntu.com/646906/00:47
edbiangmachine_24: It doesn't matter though.00:47
Dirusit says "Unnecessary on 11.04 LiveCD. Casper now includes a functioning toram option, which even works with the iso-scan/filename= option."00:47
gmachine_24edbian, ok, I found the boot directory. give me a minute to mount it00:47
Dirusbut I don't know how to enable that toram option00:47
edbiangmachine_24: It should be you /boot partition right? What do you mean you found it?00:47
gmachine_24I mean nothing is labeled except the swap folder00:48
edbiangmachine_24: ahhh, so is it /dev/sda3 or /dev/sda5 or 4?  yeah I got ya00:48
gmachine_24yes the boot is /dev/sda700:49
gmachine_24edbian, and it's mounted to ~/secondboot00:49
hammoommahhello all, i've made a 4gig partition on my hd, i want to set it up like a bootable usb drive, i tried copying all files off bootable usb and setting boot flag on but grub doesnt find it when i do a grub-mkconfig???00:50
edbiangmachine_24: sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/home/<you>/secondboot /dev/sda00:50
gmachine_24edbian, you're sure about this........... ? ;)00:50
edbiangmachine_24: yes00:50
hammoommahwouldnt you use grub-pc???00:50
edbiangmachine_24: It's going to write grub into the MBR of /dev/sda and it's going to point at your boot partition.  Assuming the boot partition is write it will work00:50
edbianhammoommah: Talking to me?00:51
gmachine_24edbian, ok, hang on.00:51
hammoommahhow do you tag people in these chat msg?00:51

gmachine_24edbian, the last /dev/sda . . . is supposed to be what?00:52
hammoommahedbian cools00:52
edbiangmachine_24: the hdd you boot00:52
edbiangmachine_24: not a partition so no number.  the actual drive00:52

Nobgul_tomgeorge, for what00:53
edbiangmachine_24: worst case we'll have to write the grub menu by hand which I can do.00:53

tomgeorgeNobgul_, it isn't working00:55
tomgeorgeNobgul_, thing is I don't use Tor for IRC00:55
tomgeorgeonly for browsing00:55
Nobgul_tomgeorge, but on a more serious note, most irc networks have vhosts, so there is no real reason to use tor. But really this si a ubuntu help channel, you can try asking in #freenode someone there may help00:55
edbiangmachine_24: wow.  Is your grub installed?00:55
tomgeorgek thanx00:55
gmachine_24edbian, no. I got an error msg to wit: Unrecognized option `--boot-directory=/home/ubuntu/secondboot'00:57
edbiangmachine_24: what version of ubuntu are you running?00:58
edbiangmachine_24: ahhh, yes then it should be sudo grub-install --root-directory=/home/<you>/secondhdd /dev/sda00:58

edbiangmachine_24: what did you run?01:04
edbiangmachine_24: how did you get it to work?01:04

sudokillharisund, it can01:45
dr_willisthere are some issues with dual monitor support and unity. but ive not messed with that yet.01:45
harisundsudokill: What should I enable for that to happen? Once I do a sudo stop gdm, plugging in my external hard disk has no effect, and I have to manually mount it01:46
dr_willisharisund:  theres automounting services you can install on a server.. but normally on a server. one is not just plugging in usb/flash/drives all the time.01:46
sudokill^ yea01:46
harisunddr_willis: Well, this is more like a small PC I have behind my desktop that I use as a back up and stuff, so I just plug in my usb disks01:46

fishscene_2I'm trying to set up a diskless workstation (thinclient) with LTSP. The server is running 11.04 64-bit and the thinclient is running 32-bit.

Does anyone know how to even begin troubleshooting this?01:49
sudokillchaddy, whats the point in that? lol01:49
dr_willisfishscene_2:  try getting to the console. and using 'startx' to see if you get some error output. or check the /var/log/Xorg logs..01:50
fishscene_2How do I get to the console?01:50
Famousdr_willis is lubuntu same looking as ubuntu01:50
sudokillFamous, no its not01:50
Famoussudokill: Im getting conufsed witch to download witch is better01:51
Famouslubuntu or xubuntu01:51
sudokillFamous, theyre both light and will be good for your comp01:51
JensitXubuntu you can try out on your ubuntu system01:51
sudokillFamous, they just use different panels and file managers basically01:51
rypervenche2Famous: lubuntu is very light, xubuntu has more feature.01:51
JensitJust install the xubuntu metapackage and select xubuntu on the loginscreen01:52
pooltablehelp installed or use jpcsp-linux-x86?01:52
dr_willislubuntu is as about as light as you can get with the  core features most people would want.01:52

The server is running Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit and I followed instructions from here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LTSPQuickInstall (ltsp-build-client --arch i386) I then told my DHCP server to hand out the boot directory (dhcp-boot=/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0,,

fishscene_2My DHCP server is telling the client to pull the 32-bit image. My client won't boot with the 64-bit image.02:45

Jordan_Ufrax: You're welcome.04:19
xanguaTrfsrfr: there is also Long Term Support 10.04 , 3 years of support and you can upgrade directly to the next LTS 12.0404:19
Doinklep_res, i used to use it, dont anymore04:20
xanguaTrfsrfr: otherwise you will need to upgrade to 11.04, 11.10, 12.0404:20
p_resDoinkle: no worries mate.04:21
Trfsrfrxangua, are you recommending a newb like me use a a LTS version?04:21
xanguaTrfsrfr: only if you don't wanna go thru 11.0404:21
coconutzhey. i got a assembla svn repo and i want to make cron job to push every day a version of it to my machine, i should use svn checkout myrepo.com ?04:22
xanguaTrfsrfr: you can neither stick to 10.10 for ever, only one year and a half support04:22
lucascastrodoes someone know about the problem with mouse on ubuntu? the mouse  stops working.04:22
Trfsrfrxangua, 11.04 is pretty much all I know. But I find it buggy..I lose things, web pages arent visible until I'm restarting, the taskbar changes at random...04:23
dstufftI'm having an issue. Compiz keeps locking up my computer and I have to ctrl alt f4 and kill -9 compiz to get a responsive desktop again (and then I Have to reboot because killing it messes things up majorly)04:23

nit-witdstufft, how are you confirming that compiz is the problem?04:26
dstufftnit-wit: top shows compiz is using 100% cpu whenever my desktop locks up, and if I kill -9 compiz responsiveness is restored04:27
dstufftit's not immediate04:27
dstufftit's seemingly random when it starts to happen, but once it happens the only thing that restores responsiveness is killing compiz or rebooting04:28
zoLevDotComrebooting is better04:29
dstufftwell yea, because not having compiz sucks, but rebooting is a bad fix too :p04:29
karexlucascastro: i don't know your problem, but my mouse has the problem with power04:31
dstufftit's probably something I did when I installed it. Not sure what though D:04:31
karexlucascastro: i mean usb autosuspend04:31
lucascastroKarex: but did you need reload the module to it come back to work?04:32

d_atharva_Hi.....I got aquestion in my mind....Whydoes ubuntu does not include plugins like mp3,rar etc. (which I have to download each time after its installation). Is there any reason for it ?05:39
JoAnneThraxChipzzz: Gracias.05:40
Chipzzzde nada05:40
alazare619flash mp3 rar etc05:41
alazare619are all non-free05:41
alazare619there license doesnt make them free to include05:41
alazare619thus you have to get them from the source ie lame mp3 win rar and adobe flash05:41
alazare619pretty much there eula reads like this05:41
KM0201d_atharva_: if you pay attention while installing... since like 10.04 i think.. there's a box that says "click here if you wish to download/install nonfree multimedia codecs" (basicallyt hats what it says)05:42
KM0201if you're not checking that box.. ou only have yourself to blame05:42
alazare619it is free to use but without written consent by the creator you may not incorporate these into your own software05:42
KM0201d_atharva_: beyond that, sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restrictd-extras   will install just about everything you need, w/o scouring the internnet to install them.05:43
d_atharva_<alazare619> : So these plugins should also not be  in remastered ubuntu's like zorin etc.....(Which are installed in it)...So do they have licence of giving it with their remastered product ?05:45
alazare619to be honest d_atharva_ i have no idea05:46
alazare619im guessing they have some kind of agreement05:46
alazare619or they remake it like debian does under there own name05:46
alazare619debian uses iceweasel wich is the same as ff05:46
alazare619they might do similar05:46

JohanSJAi know that 'windows' is referred as 'meta' or 'super' key sometimes06:12

nit-witgechmog, thanks for clearing that up, the script should get us the info we need.06:14

JohanSJAI am trying to install Ubuntu on a totally new laptop. During the installation stage, I started thinking about the disk partitioning issue. Should I go for 'Default - use all' (which results in one large / partition and 4GB swap) or 'Manual partitioning (10GB for /, 4GB for swap, rest for /home)?06:18
gechmogoh ok06:18
laserbledHi, anyone using wink here - I cant get to install it - it says 2 packages missing - installed it but still says the same06:18
NielsMknis it possible to upgrade from ubuntu 32 bit to 64 bit?06:18
pepito141can anyone help a noob with a version selection?06:19
alazare619NielsMkn,  as far as i know thats impossible without alot of work06:19
JohanSJAI have been using the 'manual partitioning' so far but I am wondering if it really worth effort to manually partitioning them.06:19
NielsMknand its impossible to run 64 bit apps on 32 bit ones :(06:19
wildbat1JohanSJA: i will go for manual06:19
pepito141i just inherited an alienware i7 and want to replace vista with 11.04 but should i choose 64 bit?06:20
NielsMknpepito you must be having more than 4 GB RAM06:20
NielsMknso you should definetely go for 64 bit06:20
pepito141ok.  thanks,  i will check now06:20
nit-witJohanSJA, that is sort of a personal preference really. What do you want?06:21
JohanSJAwildbat1: I have been told that separating / and /home would be ideal but confused why Ubuntu didn't use that as their default06:21
ChipzzzJohanSJA: I usually use a relatively small partition for the system (/), a swap disk 1 or 2 times the size of ram, and the rest /home06:21
RenatoSilvais there any way to get  the ip of an interface using the name contained in /etc/network/interfaces rather than what pops up into ifconfig?06:21
pepito141NielsMkn - i have exactly 4gb ram.  enough? or go with 32bit?06:21
wildbat1JohanSJA: there is many thing Ubuntu / other OS should do but that don't, like windows ~ it won't have D: by default ~06:22
NielsMknGo with 64 bit06:22
JohanSJAnit-wit: Just try to understand why Ubuntu didn't use a better partitioning scheme for Default. And why separating / and /home is a more ideal situation?06:22
NielsMkn32 bit will allow you to only use 3 GB RAM, 1 GB will be wasted06:22
Jordan_URenatoSilva: What do you mean by "using the name contained in /etc/network/interfaces"? What is wrong with ifconfig?06:22
pepito141ok thanks.  logging off and starting the d/l!  cant wait!06:23

ChipzzzJohanSJA: if you trash your kernel, restoring it is easier/safer if it is on its own disk... /home is protected06:23
JohanSJAChipzzz: I normally allocate around 10GB for / and 2xram for swap and rest for /home06:23
nit-witJohanSJA, I use the one partition, I have evrything off the computer it is full of OS's mainly.06:24
alazare619i really wish i would of made my home directory its own partition...06:24
NielsMknvehemoth, you sure?06:24
gechmognit-wit: I guess I should have been more clear (sorry), but i have no networking what so ever to download your script, so I also have no ability to paste it on pastebin as well. :(06:24
NielsMknI was using 10.10 64 bit before this06:24

Jordan_Uvehemoth: NielsMkn: 64 bit does not use even close to twice as much RAM. Pointers are twice as large but pointers are only a small fraction of data stored in RAM.06:24

gechmogI can't even mount a usb device.06:24
ejvfor the majority, the community clearly thought that the default of combining root and home is satisfactory. devoting /home to a seperate partition does allow you to thoroughly trash your installation without impacting your personal files (in most cases)06:24
gechmognit-wit: I'm on my laptop now.06:24

nit-witgechmog, can you boot a live cd on the infected computer and plug a usb into it.06:25
Jordan_UNielsMkn: You're welcome.06:25
gechmognit-wit: My desktop is what is having the problem, but after scowering the forums it seems all I need is a alternate cd as you so kindly linked to me. :D06:25
JohanSJAChipzzz: ya. Just wondering if this is a more recommended way of partitioning a new drive when Ubuntu just go with 1 partition06:25
gechmognit-wit: sure06:25
alazare619i have to say tho xubuntus ram usage is not that much less then gnome it is definetly faster and snappier06:26
alazare619the boot is slow as hell tho for some reason idk why compared to gnome the boot is wayyyy slower06:26
alazare619but once loaded its waaaaaay snappier06:26

NielsMknwell I am all for ubuntu classic06:26
alazare619i can tell this case i can actually play html5 videos ow06:26
alazare619and now06:26
nit-witgechmog, I doubt the alt cd is the answer to be honest it is probably simpler then that. Use the thumb to transfer the script download to the bad computer, on the live desktop=cd booted, then transfer it back to the laptop, and paste it here.  http://paste.ubuntu.com/06:27
JohanSJADefTone: you should be able to access your windows partition easily in Ubuntu06:27
RenatoSilvaJordan_U: I mean exactly as stated, imagine an interface is called dsl-provider in interfaces file, but pops up as ppp0 in ifconfig because pppoe is stupid06:28
DefTonehow so JohanSJA ?06:28
RenatoSilvaJordan_U: so I need to hook an interface through what's in interfaces file06:29
DefTonei can see it in disk utility.....is there a way to open it up and copy files to a flash drive?06:29
JohanSJADefTone: you are in your Ubuntu right now? Just find it in your Nautilus.06:29

YankDownUnderhanthana, Are you not able to find the "Help" files in the Synaptic Package Manager for your language?07:09
hanthanaacr: what is the exact place to ask this question if you guys not aware of this07:09
kroq-gar78also, it's a makeshift server (a laptop)07:09
hanthanaI am not a Ubuntu user07:09
YankDownUnderkroq-gar78, You should be able to pick which kernel you desire through package management07:09
hanthanabut I want to localize the installer07:09
kroq-gar78YankDownUnder: but what's a "pae" kernel do?07:10
hanthanaYankDownUnder: acr ^^07:10
YankDownUnderPAE = physical address extension07:10
kroq-gar78YankDownUnder: what's that mean? I'm no technical expert :(07:11
raveHi guys07:11
YankDownUnderkroq-gar78, It means that that particular kernel can make use of memory beyond 4gb07:11

acrhanthana look in source07:12
YankDownUnderhanthana, That might be something to ask in the dev channel...07:12
kroq-gar78ssfdre38_: I think it depends on which version of firefox you're using. If you're using 4 or above, full HTML5 support AFAIK07:12
YankDownUnderkroq-gar78, My servers user PAE's...and I don't like using 64bit linux...07:13

YankDownUnderhanthana, It's up to you to join the #ubuntu-dev channel...no one else.07:13
hanthanaany way debian and fedora much better than ubuntu supoort07:14
YankDownUnderrave, You should be able to correct the installation (in a term, do: sudo apt-get -f install => then retry your installation)07:14

YankDownUnderhanthana, Well, have fun with Debian and Fedora.07:14
kroq-gar78YankDownUnder: ok, but does the server installer do PAE by default? my laptop only has 2GB ram but it's still doing PAE installs by default07:14
hanthanaafter several queries you point the channel name07:14
YankDownUnderhanthana, I gave you the name of the channel.07:14
hanthanaanyway thaks07:15
raveYankDownUnder: thank you ill try that07:15
YankDownUnderkroq-gar78, If you're absolutely worried about the kernel, use the package management system to change to a different kernel. Easy as that.07:15
kroq-gar78YankDownUnder: ok. how do I change the kernel type? the only reason I want to do this is because I am apt-cacher-ng-ing all of my ubuntu computers07:16
kroq-gar78so, there would be no problem switching the kernel type, yes?07:17
YankDownUnderkroq-gar78, Find the kernel you want in the Synaptic Package Manager, then you'll be able to take it from there. Search on "linux-image"07:17
YankDownUnderkroq-gar78, I can't tell you that - there may be programs/services on the server that require the PAE kernel...07:18
kroq-gar78YankDownUnder: k thanks dude. do you know of any examples that might require PAE's?07:18
kroq-gar78just wonderin07:18
YankDownUnderkroq-gar78, Mate, nah, I don't...however, that being said, since I moved all my servers and client's servers to Ubuntu, I let the system determine the necessary kernel as per.07:19

blackdivinebefore that it was 9.0408:49
blackdivineI have been running my own server for 2 years now08:50
Fenixdeuxblackdivine: All I need is LAMP08:50
Lasersbullgard4_: Maybe you can use inotify to monitor the changes (whilst you make the change) to find it.08:50
blackdivineFenixdeux, yes, then its more good,. when you install server ed, it asks you to what kinda server you want.08:50
Fenixdeuxand rsync over secure connection for proper backups08:50
blackdivineFenixdeux, you can check things like LAMP, FTP, Mail, SSH, etc just check and and hit install while installation.08:50

noobplzhelplasers: i'm running ubuntu via virtualbox, my internet is fine on my normal OS, WITHIN virtualbox's ubuntu there is no internet after i changed my MAC09:02
Fenixdeuxdoesn't IPv6 affix the MAC addresss to your IPv6 address or some other grossly inappropriate shit like that.. luckily you ( the client ) can reply "no comment" to the reqs to get that part of the address and I belive that fake mac addressers for this purpose are around09:03

arunkumar413blackdivine: can u check if you are able to update to 1409:05
blackdivinearunkumar413, since chromium is coming from external resources ( not even ubuntu people are managing it ) it can be slower, and yes let me check09:05

tixo5edit your GRUB10:45
nothingspecialflexy: /etc/modules10:45
tixo5you can edit at GRUB menu10:45
flexytixo5: like following line 'bttv i2c_hw=1 card=0x71 '10:45
munzxguys! ,... i gave up!! i could't repair my sys boot problem!!! ... i searched and tried everything possible in the net but nothing worked!!! .... the problem that my system halts on boot so i have to re-boot it where u get several options to starts the system ... the only one that works is : previous linux ... then ubuntu linux-generic  or something similar!10:46
Tetarchosa fake ircop caled niko make shadow on a people we try to contact you10:46
wasanzy_oh that is exactly the instruction I followed to install the vmware10:46
tixo5nothingspecial: i dont think he wants to directly edit the module? im not sure10:46
flexynothingspecial: I don't mean to get the module loaded, it does that already. I need to set parameters for the module, because it does not autodetect the dvb card correctly10:46
nothingspecialtixo5: Oh, sorry :)10:46
|Long|hi guys, when i point to shutdown menu, it keep loopback to login screen how do i fix tis?10:46
wh1zz0SwedMike.. yes! you are right..10:46
tixo5flexy:  test your line out by press i think 'E' on your GRUb line at boot10:47
tixo5edit the script10:47
tixo5if it works, add to grub.cfg10:47
wh1zz0That's the sort of thing I need... Something which hides and lets me unlock it upon boot10:47
flexytixo5, nothingspecial: kernel parameters, or options to a module to load. So that the kernel is not loaded without the options. Grub is way too soon.10:47
wh1zz0I looked at trucrypt but it doesnt say much about how it works10:48
tixo5grub is way too soon? can you explain?10:48

hongry_I added a second video card, and although NVIDIA X Server Settings detects the device, whenever I configure a second screen to use the new display adapter, I get an error upon re-loading xorg.  Might someone assist me in resolving this problem?11:09
tixo5ya rofl, fail11:09
tixo5however, its not listing the module i want11:09
tixo5so must i compile extra modules myself?11:10
tixo5or should i try and install this   'v   libapache2-mod-security2 '   even with the 'v' ?11:10
exutuxdo you have installed libapache2-mod-security?11:10
dr_willishongry_:  configure how. whats the first video card?11:10
tixo5im not sure totally what 'v' means still, does it mean something else similar is already isntalled?11:10
rumbaWhat's up with Ubuntu 11.04? It keeps crashing every few minutes and I didn't even install/configure very much.11:11
exutuxtixo5: sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-security what says?11:11
tixo5i didnt want to do it incase it messes up something else ^ i was checking, shall i just run it ? i have no image/snapshot of my server atm11:12
rumbaThe screen keeps going black, then shows the image again, then black, then the image again and I can't click on anything. When I get bored of watching that, I have to do a cold reboot.11:12
wasanzy_what is the command to luch virtual machine from a terminal window?11:12
rumbaThere's also the dock at the left side of the screen that sometimes appears and it just won't go away. How do I hide it?11:12
hongry_dr_willis, :  The first video card, (GPU 0) - (GeForce 6800 XT).  The Second video card, (GPU 1) - (Geforce 8400 GS).  GPU 0 is a PCI Express x16, GPU 1 is listed as a PCI Express x1.11:12
dr_willisrumba:  what image11:12
rumbaI would like to replace it with Cairo-Dock.11:13
rumbadr_willis: Ubuntu 11.04 x6411:13
exutuxtixo5: ok but it need to installed11:13
tixo5ahh, exutux i think its virtual, because the real package is libapache-mod-security11:13
tixo5Note, selecting 'libapache-mod-security' instead of 'libapache2-mod-security2'11:13
tixo5so its just been added to apache2 for name purposes11:13
tixo5searching purposes*11:13
exutuxtixo5: yeah11:14
tixo5exutux: any ideas how i would find the version of soemthing compiled in the ubuntu repos?11:14
tixo5i may want/need to compile it myself if its old ?11:14
ikoniatixo5: can you give me an example of what you want to know11:14
tixo5i suppose i really want to know, how  up to date the ubuntu repos are for apache modules11:14
tixo5whether i should compile them all myself11:15
exutuxtixo5: I don't understand, so if you want enable that module you'll need to install it befor and after enable by e2enmod11:15
rumbaI can't work like this...11:15
ikoniatixo5: the package version normally tells you the version of the software in it11:15
ikoniatixo5: keep in mind back ports also11:15
dr_willishongry_:  ive used 2 nvidia cards befor. but one issue ive seen is if the 2 cards differ in age. they may need different driver versiins.  i tend to have cards that have 2 video outs these days.11:15
* rumba keeps thinking about the Windows 7 he has at home... never had issues like these11:15
tixo5ikonia:  this doesnt show anything11:15
hongry_dr_willis, :  if they do indeed require different driver versions, how might I accomplish installing the correct driver version for the newly added second card?11:16
=== Mahmoud is now known as Guest42322
tixo5this is the latest version from mod_security website "modsecurity-apache_2.6.1.tar.gz"    how do i know if its been compiled by ubuntu, or if they are using an older version11:16
MrNthDegreerumba, that is because the display drivers aren't installed properly11:17
ikoniatixo5: what does it say ?11:17
jLothjoin #reddit11:17
jLothsorry forgot /11:17
rumbaMrNthDegree: It worked fine for exactly two weeks.11:17
dr_willishongry_: im not sure you can.  you did run the addayional drivers tool? then used nvidia-settings tool?11:17
tixo5ikonia: ubuntu is trying to install this   "libapache-mod-security"11:17
tixo5and "mod-security-common"11:17
ikoniatixo5: there is normally a version number on the package though11:17
ikoniatixo5: if you query it11:17
tixo5there isnt lol11:17
tixo5query how?11:17
dr_willishongry_: or just use the gpl driver. but it sort of sucks11:17
rumbaMrNthDegree: So what can I do about it?11:17
MrNthDegreerumba, I don't tend to use non-LTS versions of Ubuntu11:17
dawidGada ktoś po Polsku?11:18
MrNthDegreerumba, check your drivers are installed correctly if you're using either ATI or NVIDIA proprietary drivers11:18
hongry_dr_willis, :  right after you said the bit about the different drivers I fired up the "additional drivers" tool.  I'm not really sure what to do though, honestly.  I have three drivers listed, one that is activated, and I'm not sure what to do from there...11:18
andaii'm reading a guide , it says install Mono via winetricks, but i don't see it there11:18
dr_willishongry_: i just use the recommended ones11:18
MrNthDegreerumba, also keep in mind if you're using Unity, that it's quite a new desktop environment and is quite rough11:19
exutuxtixo5: apt-cache policy libapache-mod-security11:19
dr_willishongry_:  how many monitors are you using total?11:19
exutuxwhich version get you?11:19
MrNthDegreerumba, Unity tends to expose bugs in a lot of drivers when running with 3D effects enabled11:19
tixo5exutux:  thanks for the command11:20
tixo5Version table:11:20
tixo5     2.5.12-1 011:20
hongry_dr_willis, :  none of them are listed as recommended, as far as I can see.  the first two are both listed as "NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library".  The third is listed as simply "nvidia_173".  The "nvidia_173" driver is the one that is activated, but not currently in use, according to the Additional Drivers utility.11:20
rumbaMrNthDegree: How do I know if 3D effects are enabled?11:20
tixo5it is quite new, i will see if there is an exploits / bypasses for that version11:20
dr_willishongry_:  the not in use can ba a bug. its in use if nvidia-settings says it is..11:20
hongry_maybe I'll try activating one of the other ones...11:21
exutuxtixo5: yeah but there is constantly security upgrades11:21
dr_willishongry_: you did run nvidia-settings and turned on twinview11:21
exutuxthere are*11:21
MrNthDegreerumba, for Unity, you'd know if you've installed compiz11:21
dr_willisgotta run bbl11:21
hongry_dr_willis, :  no, when I was trying to configure the second display I had configured it for "Separate X Display".  I do not desire to use TwinView.11:22
exutuxtixo5: so I think that isn't a problem if it isn't latest new version...11:22
MrNthDegreerumba, try the following for me:  http://ubuntuguide.net/ubuntu-11-04-natty-login-to-classic-gnome-2-desktop11:22
rumbaMrNthDegree: Well, compiz is installed.11:22
hongry_I just de-activated/re-activated the "nvidia_173" driver, and it says I need to restart computer to apply changes.11:22
rumbaMrNthDegree: Thanks, great!11:22
tixo5exutux: that depends if there is a severe security problem with it11:22
hongry_I'm going to go give it a spin.  I'll be back momentarily.  Thank you thus far for your recommendations.  I'll let you know how it goes when I return.11:22
amanforindiathis is my partitioning scheme11:22
exutuxtixo5: sure11:23
MrNthDegreerumba, the GNOME 2 desktop is a very well tested environment, while Unity is still very new (think of it as akin to when Vista first came out!)11:23

wh1zz0Does anyone now if trucrypt hides and encrypts upon reboot?11:33
tharakaHi, anyone can help me to solve my problem that is a, when I installed FF+ubuntu on my matchine there is no NIC driver , so then I can't access the internet , where I can find this NIC driver for hp compaq 6200 pro mt pc11:33
MrNthDegreealberto, i've only ever had a Linux box sharing the printer, with Windows as a client11:33
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, what do you mean?11:34
albertoMrNthDegree Did it work for you?11:34
szaltharaka: what's FF got to do w/ it?11:34
SwedeMikewh1zz0: most disk-encryption does real time encryption, it doesn't do anything specific when rebooting.11:34
wh1zz0I am looking for a tool or Something which hides folders and lets me unlock it upon boot11:34
MrNthDegreealberto, with the printer connected to Linux box and shared to Windows, yes, not done it the other way11:34
wh1zz0Something like what hide folders v 3.5 does on windows11:35
MrNthDegreealberto, when Linux shares it, you don't even need samba because CUPS can be accessed through Windows if you use XP11:35
dawidDavid_4d- Bitch!11:35
bazhangdawid, stop that11:35
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, I don't know what that does, however, what I do know is that everything you save inside a TC container is encrypted11:35
dawidBazhang- Wchat?11:35
albertoMrNthDegree Thank you11:35
wh1zz0When you say encrypted, what kind of encryption are we talking about here?11:36
szalalberto: I believe I once had a setup where I shared a printer via Windows file and printer sharing, and it worked11:36
wh1zz0Prompted for password each time I try to access it OR just file protection11:36
MrNthDegreealberto, with XP you'd use the URL option and put in the URL to the printer you get from the CUPS web interface and then install drivers as you would for local ;)11:36
arikmwh1zz0, you can choose the symmetric cipher, amongst other things11:36
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, every time you try to access the container11:37
albertoMrNthDegree Great! Thanks indeed11:37
tharakasorry I got it wrong11:37
tharakalet me know how can I find that driver11:37
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, but truecrypt is lame compared to Ubuntu's encryption option11:37
lonix!alias > lonix11:38
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, the built-in home directory encryption means when you're not logged in, everything is inaccessible, and it depends on your password to decrypt the key to decrypt the files11:38
av-adilsonhi i've got an issue with two clients, I removed nis and nfs-common added new users however, I have no network. Ntwork manager doens't show any eth* connections, anyone can tell me why and how to resolve this issue?11:39
lonix!bashrc > lonix11:39
wh1zz0Whew.. The thing is, these are files I use all the time, so it would be ardous to keep repeating the password each time I want to access files. But also, on the other hand the are very personal files that I like to keep hidden from prying eyes. So I'm sort of looking for something which can automatically hide upon reboot and only ask me for pass when I boot11:39
bazhanglonix, /msg ubottu please11:39
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, the built in encryption does that11:39
lonixkk, sorry11:39
dawidAlberto, I am of Polish. Jeb on the snout fucking prick11:39
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, why didn't you opt to encrypt home directory when you installed?  It does that11:40
wh1zz0Hmm... seems I'd have to make do with the default ubuntu encryption then.. Where is is located and how can I activate it?11:40
wh1zz0No I just don't want the entire home dir encrypted11:40
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, why not?11:40
wh1zz0I just want a particular dir inside /home/user11:40
Dreamscapehey all anyone here familiar with virtualmin?11:41
nightcrowhow do I remove a service from bootup11:41
FourTensIn Banshee is there a way to hide the artist view and sort albums by artist?11:41
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, well the built-in encryption uses command line tools for mounting individual directories11:41
nightcrowi have smbd running but I dont want it to start when I turn on the server, I only want to start it manually11:41
wh1zz0MrNthDegree:  Well, lol.. lame reason to be honest11:41
nightcrowhow can I achieve this?11:41
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, you could script truecrypt on login11:42
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, that would mean a box would appear asking for a password and then mount the folder11:42
phani Hi.. unable to play videos in this link http://www.video.mediaset.it/video/sportmediaset/tutti_i_gol/225240/udinese-lazio-2-1.html lucid 10.4 , tried on firefox and also chrome. Installed moonlight plugin as well but still not working.. any ideas.. updated flash as well11:42
wh1zz0MrNthDegree: I guess I was just looking at a scenario whereby it wouldn't look as though I was hidding my entire system from my friends11:42
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, well you're not if you encrypt /home/user and use two user accounts11:43
wh1zz0Okie.. so MrNthDegree where do I find the default encryption now that I didnt enable it during installation?11:43
MrNthDegreeon GNOME 2:  System -> Administration -> Users and Groups11:43
MrNthDegreeWhen making a new user, there's a checkbox to enable encryption11:44
wilharthello, anyone have problem with playback it flickers in my hdmi out tv lcd11:44
wilhartbut does not flicker in my main monitor11:44
wh1zz0MrNthDegree: I just want to encrypt one folder /home/user/thisfolder11:44
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, that isn't built-in unfortunately, so you'll have to script that yourself11:44
wh1zz0Owh... okie I'm on 11.04 so i guess i'd just find user and groups11:44
wh1zz0Hmm....any nice material on this please?11:45
arikmMrNthDegree, wh1zz0, I wonder if you can make a encryptfs filesystem in a file, then mount it in your desired folder?11:45
av-adilsonhi i've got an issue with two clients, I removed nis and nfs-common added new users however, I have no network. Network manager doens't show any eth* connections, anyone can tell me why and how to resolve this issue?11:45

arikmi.e. with the loop device11:45
nightcrowav-adilson: ifup?11:45
wh1zz0it's the encryptfs filesystem file I cannot make11:45
wh1zz0Can you link me to a resource?11:46
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, http://nerdcenter.de/howto-debian-loopback-dm-crypt-luks-pam-mount/ <-- complicated but works11:46
rumbaMrNthDegree: I chose Ubuntu Classic at the login screen. This is exactly what I wanted and I hope it will behave better. Thanks!11:47
wh1zz0Hmm.. Thanks11:47
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, that will be unlocked on login though11:47
av-adilsonnightcrow, ifup doesn't recognise eth0 which should've been the standard11:48
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, which is no different from encrypting the whole home folder, since as soon as someone is logged in, they have access11:48
arikmMrNthDegree but it will make it easier to move around the folder, i.e to other machines11:48
wh1zz0Then that will not work for my purpose11:49
MrNthDegreearikm, many files vs. one file yeah11:49
wh1zz0Anyone ever tried cryptkeeper/11:50
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, what are you looking for exactly then?  Nothing wrong with manually opening truecrypt and putting in the password once each time you log in11:50
wh1zz0Yes, if it would mean only putting the password once, i.e once logged in, then I'm cool with it11:51
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, yes you can do that with truecrypt11:51
wh1zz0but the issue of putting the password all the time is what I felt would be like a nagging wife11:51
arikmMrNthDegree I agree, password just once, seems to satisfy the requirements11:51
arikmwh1zz0, just at mount time11:52
wh1zz0but does truecrypt also hide the folders or it just locks it?11:52
malama_hi everyone,Can anyone help me on how to change folder permissions of folders in the file system11:52
wilhartOk, hi. I have problem when playbacking video (i have nvidia 9800gt) outputs are dvi out to monitor and hdmi to my second projector screen11:52
wilhartand. The problem is that i get flickering when playbacking video on second projector, and this DOES dont affect my dvi main monitor!11:52
wilhartPlease help.11:52
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, there isn't any folder in the real world ;)11:52
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, truecrypt makes a big file containing a whole filesystem, which is mounted as a folder11:52
arikmwh1zz0: trucrypt implements an entire filesystem. Just happens you can put it on a file11:52
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, when it's not mounted, there's an empty folder there11:52
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, you can mount it to any folder, even a folder containing files11:53
wh1zz0MrNthDegree:  Hmm I see11:53
=== UltimediaOS is now known as Markus[uOS]
wh1zz0Interesting stuff11:53
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, so you could just mount it to say /home/user/Public and no-one would know there's ever been anything there11:53
arikmwh1zz0: and the idea behind trucrypt is that folks that look at the file cannot tell it is even a truecrypt file11:53
MrNthDegreeeven if Public has 100s of files in it, those files are untouched11:53
arikmjust a bunch of junk11:53
wh1zz0Lol.. awesome11:53
wh1zz0But each time I login I have to mount only once right?11:54
wh1zz0Great.. thanks for this11:54
MrNthDegreeand if you forget to unmount, it's still unmounted at reboot11:54
wh1zz0Exactly what I need11:54
MrNthDegreejust be aware that even with this, there are privacy leaks11:55
wh1zz0But one last question, why do you feel truecrypt is lame?11:55
nightcrowav-adilson: driver?11:55
arikmespecially since having it mounted is as vulnerable as any other file on your system11:55
jpdswh1zz0: It's not fully open-source software?11:55
MrNthDegreejpds, it is, it suffers from the Firefox problem11:56
wh1zz0There are known bugs right?11:56
MrNthDegreejpds, you can't edit it and leave it called Truecrypt, same as Firefox11:56
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, it's not lame, if you use it right.  But compared to doing the whole of $HOME, it's not very good11:56
jpdsMrNthDegree: I know.11:56
jpdswh1zz0: All software has bugs.11:56
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, for example:  Open a picture in a photo management/editing app and that file will show in the last opened list11:57
nightcrowav-adilson: mv /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules.old11:57
nightcrowav-adilson: and then reboot11:57
wh1zz0Yea I know.. but I only call serious bugs, bugs11:57
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, which is not good because then people will know a file was opened which isn't there right now11:57
wh1zz0Omg..! that's a serious one MrNthDegree11:57
arikmwh1zz0: got to be sensible with filenames too!11:58
wh1zz0There was one tool I used in winbows pista which had that error11:58
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, that's not a truecrypt bug, that's a not-using-encryption-properly issue ;)11:58
wh1zz0It made the whole thing useless11:58
wh1zz0Well.. yeah not really a bug11:58
* MrNthDegree gives people a separate user account to work around this issue11:58
wh1zz0But it made using the whole tool completely useless11:58
aikInsaanhey....i have made some changes to grub during the boot (specifically: added nomodeset)...i would now like to make this a permanent change for all restarts (not for upgrades as yet though)...11:58
av-adilsonnightcrow, will try11:58
wh1zz0I mean the essence and whole cover would be bown away11:58
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, not really, if you encrypt all of $HOME and have an autologin on another user account which is for non-private use...11:59
chompingHi guys, anyone who knows how to set a system wide proxy setting? I have this instance in the cloud and wanted to access the internet thru a proxy. Any idea?11:59

MrNthDegreewh1zz0, on Windows, privacy is such an issue that Truecrypt lets you have a hidden container for a second copy of Windows :P11:59
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, so it's about understanding how all your software works and working around privacy issues12:00
* MrNthDegree has some pictures of past girlfriends and other stuff which is potentially compromising and uses encryption of the homedir and separate accounts for that reason12:01
arikmMrNthDegree:  to be clear, that is for any encryption system12:01
MrNthDegreearikm, true, but the built-in caters for all that because of the way Linux works, excluding Java using /tmp12:01
arikmgotta be careful about /tmp files as well12:01
arikmI agree, the builtin is nice, and transparent12:02
MrNthDegree/tmp can of course have LUKS with random keys12:02

kasun_hi i'm having a problem with network connectivity, my NIC card dosent detect by ubuntu, but works fine with windows, can some one help me to solve this12:03
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, in addition there are less obvious issues which hit people occasionally, like privacy leaks on IM clients12:03
wh1zz0Okie.. I just thought for a second there.. So what you are advising is that the best way is to have a second account where I keep all compromising files right?12:03
dydhow can i create a link in the dekstop to a command? like wine /media/LaCie/exe/program.exe12:03
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, yep and that account to be encrypted12:03
aetasMrNibbles, its incosiderate to encrypt porn12:03
wh1zz0Hmm.. I see12:03
MrNthDegreewh1zz0, and then all you need do is have auto-login on a non-private account12:03
wh1zz0So let's say I wish to pick up a couple of files I just login to that account right?12:04
wh1zz0And work directly from there12:04
MrNthDegreepretty much12:04
MrNthDegreepeople will see the non-private account all the time since it "just loads" and won't think about any other accounts12:04
MrNthDegreeand if you need an excuse, just name the account "Maintenance" or something and claim it's there for emergencies like when your normal account won't login12:04
wh1zz0MrNthDegree: You have a very good point there, if it aint broke don't change it.. I'm going to try something now12:05
MrNthDegree(after all, that's a necessity on most systems)12:05

baloooHi.  I'm currently using Ubuntu but i'm on a windows network that I do not manage.  I'm having problems pinging any other machines (windows or linux) by their hostname, and similarly they cannot ping my machine by my hostname.  Is there something I "need to"or can do to make my ubuntu machine compliant with however windows networks are managed?13:40
dr_willisbalooo:  can you ping by ip#13:40
balooodr_willis: pinging the ip works.  But out ips are not static.13:41
skfaxjrib: http://pastebin.com/4rYYcUVr13:42

icerootsurfdue: have a look at "man getfacl"13:45

edbianSoothsayer: I gave incomplete commands and the solution I gave is one of many (perhaps not the BEST) but it will work just fine.  Would you like complete commands?14:33
Shambatok, I followed the tutorial on the Foxyproxy webpage ... according to man ssh "Currently the SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 protocols are supported, and ssh will act as a SOCKS server."14:33
PiciShambat: It will, but why are you trying to ssh into www.paypal.com?14:34
Soothsayeredbian, yes. Basically i have this directory called 'foo' which is my website. I want it to be both read/write accessible to www-data (apache) and my user (so php command line) can access it too.14:34
ikoniaShambat: it won't14:34

furibondoxin particular with ubuntu 10.04 server and 11.04 desktop14:35
ShambatPici: I'm not, www.paypal.com is just there to fill the need of the command, the socks server will at request-time determine where the request will be relayed, and so it will send it somewhere else ... at least according to foxyproxy docs14:35
ikoniaPici: as a socks5 server ?14:36
furibondoxwith other ubuntu versions and other linux distro all works correct14:36
edbianSoothsayer: Perhaps it would be more proper to make you the owner and www-data the group owner  since it's in your home14:36
edbianSoothsayer: hang on14:36
Soothsayeredbian, yes14:36
PiciShambat: You need to ssh into the server you'd like to tunnel your connections through.14:36
ikoniaPhr3d13: the webserver has no svn capabilities, you setup an svn repo and a web server, there is a module to allow you to hook the web server into the svn repo to display the repo14:36
Soothsayeredbian, but it has to also ensure that all 'dynamically' generated files are created with permissions accessible to both my user and www-data14:36
ShambatPici: ok, yeah I have done that14:36

mobius420MangledBody,  so you've installed linux, but your graphics card will only run in low res mode is that correct?14:46
PiciShambat: the ip address of the server that is running the ssh server.14:46
MangledBodymobius420: Not exactly, it shows only horizontal stripes at Ubuntu when it starts liveCD imediately, at Kubuntu after few seconds14:47
BluesKajMangledBody, a laptop ?14:47

cliworksbetterIn lucid, I try to change the boot console font by editing /etc/default/grup and changing the GFX values but to no avail... after invoking sudo update-grub no gxf line can be found in /boot/grub/grub.cfg, which means that update-grub is not taking into account the changes I make in /etc/default/grub, what can it be?14:53
mobius420MangledBody,  I read you   but what I am asking you is this:  Does that motherboard have an integrated graphics port14:53
mobius420MangledBody,  if it does, perhaps you can boot to a useable desktop environment and obtain the latest Nvidia drivers14:54
MangledBodymobius420: Searching for the description of motherboard, I'm not sure, I can't see any other monitor port...14:54
BluesKajMangledBody, the alternate cd installed on my 6yr old pc , where the live cd couldn't get past the first phase...it just stalled there14:54
mobius420MangledBody,  you can do this without an integrated gpu, but it will probably be easier for you with working video14:54
mobius420MangledBody,  okay14:54

shaduhi, does anyone know why my sound gives some sort of noise when i have the volume level at certain levels? is this because of alsa?14:57
mobius420MangledBody,  I am checking to see of your GPU can use the latest Nvidia driver for linux...but I have to admit "MS-Corp" being branded on the card and in the name is not a good sign14:57

dydPhr3d13, how do i check that?15:13
dydnothingspecial: then what do i have to select? SSH?15:13
mobius420MangledBody,  you can boot to a lower run level, install the driver I gave in the link and *maybe* it iwll run  in low res mode...but there is a reason it's freezing at the splash screen15:13
dydnothingspecial: what port shoul i set?15:13

hlfshellHello everyone. I am trying to get my desktop to allow VNCing in. It seems none of my devices can VNC to my laptop at all. I have used the ubuntu Remote Desktop option to contorl it so far. What else could I be missing to allow people to connect?17:19
xanguatrollboy_: right clic on the windows list- preferences17:19
trollboy_HackerII, still nothing like that on my ubuntu17:19
trollboy_ok xangua where is the windows list- preferences?17:19
HackerIIhuh, maybe 11.0 got rid of it17:19
dr_willishlfshell:  local lan? or over internet?17:19

dr_willishlfshell:  what vnc clients/os on the other pcs17:20
prashant_123456Haughty_Princess, your problem ??17:20
hlfshellI've tried it with TightVNC on windows, VNCViewer on another ubuntu machine, and android-vnc-viewer on a tablet (the real goal of this exercise)17:20
Haughty_PrincessI have no problem17:20

BarkingFishGood evening all.  I'm migrating from my old distro, mandriva, to ubuntu 11.04, but I'm having problems.  I got a dvd iso, but my burner (k3b) won't burn the iso properly, it gets to about half way through, and moans about a buffer underrun.17:21
jvgeliHaughty_Princess: move to #ubuntu-offtopic17:21
xanguahttp://img830.imageshack.us/my.php?image=tmpjrr86o.png trollboy_17:21
BarkingFishIs this something I can fix or is it a fault with the iso?17:21
dr_willishlfshell:  can the ubuntu box ssh to the vnc server ip?17:22
hlfshellyes - i was doing that fine this morning so i can confirm that it cna do that17:22
trollboy_Perfect Thanks xangua!! I was clicking in the wrong space!17:22
NorthernenBarkingFish, try another CD/burning program?17:22
dr_willishlfshell:  as a test try installing tightvnc server on the vncserver box, ssh in, run vncserver, then see if a vnc client can connect17:23
mounteverestMy chrome browser says preferences couldn't be saved every time it starts.. any solution?17:23
BarkingFishNorthernen: I don't know of any others for KDE, I'll go check our repos, but to the best of my knowledge, k3b is the only one available to us. There's others for gnome, but i haven't got gnome installed17:23
xanguamounteverest: try chromium-browser instead17:23
trollboy_mounteverest, possibly permissions?17:23
dr_willishlfshell:  i rarely use the gnome vnc feature. i use stand alone vnc servers like tightvnc, or vnc4server17:24
BarkingFishand I've wasted 2 dvd+r's on attempting to burn the iso, so I won't try again unless I can be certain it's my fault :)17:24
mounteverestxangua, chromium 12.0.742.91 (87961) actually17:24
dr_willisBarkingFish:  make  a bootable flash instead perhaps17:25
mounteveresttrollboy_, permissions for what?17:25
dr_willisBarkingFish:  why are you using the dvd?17:25
trollboy_mounteverest, for the conf files?17:25
BarkingFishbecause I need multilingual support.17:25
eiriksvindoes anyone know how I could download this for offline usage:  http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:2.5/Manual17:25
dr_willisi think you could install that later.. but you could try burning at the slowest speed the burner can do17:26
django23hello erveryone, i googled a lot about my touchepad, on my latptop (ASUS K53T) and i just can' t find a way to enable touchepad option in system > preferences > mouse.  My touchPad is recognized as a PS/2 Logitech Wheel mouse.17:26
BarkingFishThe area I work in, I have a couple of friends from other countries who want to learn to use Linux, so I'm teaching them.17:26
mounteveresttrollboy_, and where would they be?17:26
Picieiriksvin: I'd ask the folks in #blender if they had an offline version of it first.17:26
eiriksvinits okay if it don't have all of it there, but i need as much as I can get17:26
NorthernenBarkingFish, seems to be hardware related rather than related to the ISO. Is your computer being heavily used while you burn?17:26
trollboy_for me its /home/trollboy/.config/google-chrome17:26
BarkingFishAs long as you have language support for Hindi and Bulgarian, I'm fine :)17:26
BarkingFishNorthernen: No. I don't do anything else while I'm burning17:27

Snarshquick question, i have a cdrom with printer drivers that i need to install to a computer that doesn't ahve a cdrom, i was going to pull the install file from the cdrom and put it on a usb for the computer, but the install file and drivers, etc, are all hidden. is there a way to see these files on the cdrom? control h isn't revealing them and i'm sure this has something to do with them actually being hidden because the company is a 17:32
dr_willisscp can go from local to remote, or remote to local17:32
dr_willisSnarsh:  its rare you get a cd with linux printer drivers17:33
MonotokoOdd-rationale, you need to run it from the local machine...but it works both ways17:33
=== administrator is now known as Guest75350
Monotokoyou can specify a remote file to "grab"17:33
Snarshthis is a windows cd but i'm trying to the pull the drivers while on my ubuntu os because i have a feeling it would be even more work on my windows os17:33
dr_willisSnarsh:  and ive never seen a way to hide files on a cd like you mention17:33
usrSnarsh: Are  you sure they are "hidden".  Maybe you're just not looking in the right place.17:33
BarkingFishsorry about that17:33
sbalmosI seem to remember Googling around for something related to this. But is there no way for automount to work in a remote user X session (e.g. from an NX session)? I get unauthorized when trying to automount an external HD17:33
dr_willisSnarsh:  what is the printer  the drivers may be in the repos17:34
jbwivguys, in a recovery effort on my machine, I accidentally installed the 32-bit version but wanted the 64-bit version. is there any way to upgrade a 32-bit to a 64-bit? If not, is there a way to capture all packages installed so I can re-install them automatically? I've spent a good bit of effort restoring my environment before I caught the mistake17:34
Snarshwhen i insert the CD, /media/CD is automatically mounted and all that is in the cd is a PDF about the printer installation, nothing else on the CD17:34
BarkingFishRight, i think the best way to go is to see also if my drive has underrun protection, and whether it's something I can enable if it has17:34
dr_willis!clone | jbwiv17:34
ubottujbwiv: 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 !automate17:34
mounteveresttrollboy_, changed permissions to 777 for ~/.config/Local State and ~/.config/Default/Preferences.. and it worked! thanks..17:34
BarkingFishin the mean time, I'll try again with a slower burn and see how I get on. If I have anymore probs, I'll get back to you :)17:34
