yagooaa555, what are ur mountpoints?00:24
erika_yagoo, yea it did. I got to install by removing the flash drive. At what point after loading the ubuntu minimal cd can you remove the flash media? After i got everything to install it gave me a black screen at boot00:24
NoobuntuHow can I install ubuntu-desktop package without SOME dependencies? (for ex.: alacarte)?00:25

nullwire78900:26
erika_yagoo, ok. i'm gonna try doing the installation again. this time i wont try setting up an encrypted lvm00:26
zykotick9Psydoll, have you tried rebooting?  If you have there is a method to remove the lock, if not, try rebooting (or closing any apt based programs)00:27
yagooaa555, if you want to type "dpkg" it defaults to /var/lib/dpkg "/" is not your HDrive..00:27
Psydollzykotick9: yes ive tried rebooting00:27
yagooaa555, everything you did was useless unfortuntely from bad advice00:27

yagooaa555, well i don't know if stage1/2 is on your harddrive..00:29
yagooaa555, if it works then that's fine.. but it was only because grub primary code was inject into the mbr..00:29
Blueleafi have a usb problem with ubuntu 10.10 but only with my blackberry, anyone want to take a crack at it?00:29
yagooaa555, but all the other apt-get commands was pretty much useless..00:30
aa555nothing works i cant get to my operating systems00:30
yagooaa555, are you able to see the boot-repair urls? (Yes or No)00:30
aa555Yes00:30
yagooaa555, so try that..00:30
yagooaa555, let me know..00:30
iceroothow is ubuntu using an encrypted /home? what is the key and where is it store?00:30
aa555yagoo ok...00:30
afeijois it possible to replace my HD to a new one, same size, moving my ubuntu with no loss?00:31
icerootafeijo: yes00:31
rschnckWhat command opens disk-utility? gnome-disk-utility doesn't work00:31
afeijoiceroot, how?00:31
icerootafeijo: i would use dd for that sudo dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/sdX   replace X e.g. with sda and sdb (danger that command can kill a lot if using wrong)00:32
PsydollI got the following error after typing what the ubottu told me for the vlc problem http://paste.ubuntu.com/648674/00:32
FoxxTesttube1: I am back00:32
Blueleafafter reboot my system will see my blackberry as an external media but if i unplug it and plug it back in it will no longer see it.00:32
icerootafeijo: if = inout-file, of=output-file00:33
zykotick9rschnck, is it installed?  "apt-cache policy gnome-disk-utility" if you aren't sure.00:33
yugiohfan2011Earlier I asked if there was a driver for my Dell V105 printer that Ubuntu could use, only to discover there was no such driver for my specific printer. If I were to install a generic printer driver, what driver would you recommend I use if I wanted to print text and graphics?00:33
afeijoiceroot, do I need to do it thru a livecd?00:34
icerootafeijo: no00:34
icerootafeijo: but your new drive has to be unmounted00:34
afeijoit is00:35
icerootafeijo: but you have to be sure to set the correct drives (see  sudo fdisk -l)00:35
icerootafeijo: i would guess its if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb00:35
icerootafeijo: also its a good idea to run that in a screen session00:36
FoxxTerry: do you remember that line you had me run that got my system to recognize the card?00:36
rschnckzykotick9: I'm dead sure it's installed. It just bricked my damn SD card :(00:37
zykotick9rschnck, then i'm not sure what the executable path is then.  Best of luck.00:38
[vali]iceroot: does it work nowadays with the "new" fstab ? (using UUID)00:38
boson12Hi everyone!00:39
Psydolli think tomorrow im going to go to ubuntu 11.04 or whatever it is natty been avoiding it for so long.00:39
iceroot[vali]: hm good point00:39
boson12I am failing to connect to an external monitor via VGA00:39
* zykotick9 thinks LABELs are much easier then UUIDs in fstab00:39
=== dvz- is now known as Guest96470
rschnckzykotick9: On a different note, when I try to format it with DU I get: "Error reating partition table: helper exited with exit code: 1 Error calling fysnc(2) on /dev/mmcblk0: Input/output error"00:40
rschnckzykotick9: Any clue?00:40
boson12does anyone know how to fix my issue with connecting my ubuntu screen to an external monitor via VGA00:40
Psydollboson12: did you go system --> pref --> monitors?00:40
boson12?00:40
icerootafeijo: maybe you have to edit the uuid in /etc/fstab on the new drive. you can get the new uuid with "sudo blkid /dev/sdb"00:40
rschnckI wanted to know the executable path for DU to try running it with gksu to see if that fixed it...00:40
zykotick9rschnck, mmcblk0 is this some sort of raid?00:40
[vali]I did that in the past (and then using cp -a, wich is WAY faster), but now you will need to redo fstab IIRC00:40
icerootrschnck: which du00:40
boson12Psydoll, let me try it00:40
rschnckiceroot: gnome-disk-utility00:40
rschnckzykotick9: No, it's an SDHC 4GB card..00:40
adam_hello00:41
rschnckI bought it like 2 seconds ago.00:41
iceroot[vali]: cp is not copying the mbr and the partion-layout00:41
Ehrmanhi everyone, how can I disable the CTL + Alt shortcut that automatically maximizes every window.  The shortcut is disabled in keyboard shortcuts, I don't know how it got activated.00:41
zykotick9rschnck, sorry i have no idea.  best of luck.00:41
icerootrschnck: that is the command00:41
icerootrschnck: "which du"00:41
rschnckiceroot: I don't know what you're asking then00:41
adam_Ehrman, just pressing Ctrl+Alt ??00:41
Ehrmanyes00:41
icerootrschnck: you asked about the path of the program du00:41
zykotick9iceroot, rschnck is looking for (Gnome) Disk Utility00:41
[vali]iceroot: just create partitions beforehand (then HDD size dont even matter), copy, chroot and grub-install00:42
rschnckzykotick9: I can open it via the application manager...I just wanted to try running it with gksu to see if running it as root fixes the problem.00:42
iceroot[vali]: i think dd is easier :)00:42
[vali]but lots of thing changed since last time I did something like that00:42
adam_Ehrman, do you try to assign another shortcut to the command maximize window ?00:42
[vali]and slower XD00:42
zykotick9rschnck, so Preferences / Main Menu - and see what path GDU is using.00:43
iceroot[vali]: not if setting uo the blocksize correctly00:43
iceroot[vali]: but with the default, yes its slower00:43
EhrmanI know that's not the official shortcut for maximizing windows, but suddenly I can't use any other shortcuts that use CTL + Alt because it maximizes the window in addition to executing the command, the maximize window shortcut already has another command assigned to it00:43
somsipEhrman: is this set in CCSM - sometimes setting in there override keyboard shortcuts00:43
Ehrmanwhat is ccsm?00:43
adam_Ehrman, compiz00:43
Kereltis_Quick question: I'm planing on building a budget pc, the mobo I'm looking at has a VIA audio codec, do VIA chipsets work with Ubuntu 11.04?00:43
somsipEhrman: Compiz Something Settings Manager00:43
adam_Ehrman, compiz broke my box once :(00:44
boson12Psydoll: I had tried to fix my issue in "monitors" but failed00:44
zykotick9!ccsm00:44
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 #compiz00:44
EhrmanI didn't download anything called compiz00:44
boson12Psydoll: Both sides of the VGA cable have 15 pins00:44
EhrmanI did install orca00:45
Psydollboson12: check that you have the latest drivers installed00:45
boson12Psydoll: Also, I have successfully connected to Windows 7 but cannot do it in Ubuntu00:45
adam_Ehrman, sure ? have a look in system or applications i think compiz is the only thing who could overload your shortcuts I think00:45
Psydollboson12: at the top of your screen next to the speaker and date and time, do you see a little green icon there?00:45
somsipEhrman: ok - it was worth a try. I had a similar thing before and CCSM was overriding shortcuts set elsewhere00:45
EhrmanI did I search in the unity search bar for compiz, nothing came up00:45
Psydollboson12: do you have that icon?00:46
boson12Psydoll: No, I don't  see it; but I see a monitor icon in there00:46
Ehrmanthanks somsip, I should reboot00:46
adam_Ehrman, which version of ubuntu ?00:46
boson12Psydoll: Is that the one I have to download/update?00:46
Ehrman11.0400:46
adam_Ehrman, somsip seems to know your issue better than me00:46
Psydollboson12: not sure what that one is open it and see what it says00:46
Psydollboson12: do this open a terminal: and type "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade" without the comas00:47
EhrmanI'm going to reboot and see if that fixes it00:47

boson12Psydoll: I've forgotten the command to show you a snapshot of my terminal. What is it?00:52
KM0201adam_: tis a monumental day for you then.. :)00:53
adam_KM0201, yeah !00:53
icerootafeijo: you also have to copy the mbr and the partiton-layout00:53
Psydollboson12: just go applications -> accessories -> snapshot00:53
tensorpuddingboson12: you can take a screenshot using the Take Screenshot tool00:53
afeijoadam_, why bother? it didn't affect my system. And it is sata, I could swap thru the BIOS00:53

afeijoiceroot, oops, indeed...00:53

adam_afeijo, indeed :) that's an option too lol00:54
Psydollboson12: http://paste.ubuntu.com use that00:54
afeijoiceroot, the first partition I'm copying is my root, it hasn't the mbr and partition-layout?00:54
icerootafeijo: but this should fix it "sudo dd if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/sda1 bs=512 count=1" when sda is the new drive. then you have the partion-layout + mbr there00:54
icerootafeijo: you need the first 512 byte from the old drive00:54
adam_KM0201, why do you mock me ? you are an ubuntu master ? :)00:54
icerootafeijo: thats what bs=512 is doing00:55
KM0201adam_: wasn't mocking you at all, it's a good thing the first time you come here to try and help, rather than be helped... i didn't mean that in a mocking manner at all.00:55
icerootafeijo: after that you can copy single partitions00:55
afeijoiceroot, got it!! thanks a lot. I run it after I finish copying with dd?00:55
afeijoonly afte rthat? oops00:55
icerootafeijo: i would do it first00:56
adam_KM0201, yes i know i was joking too once i talked with a guy who used linux since 1998 i wondered if it was you00:56
afeijoso I need to cancel the current dd, ok00:56
Mandrewcan i make my installed desktop into a live cd?00:56
icerootafeijo: if you copy complete sdb to sda you also get the mbr + partionlayout00:56
adam_Mandrew, yes !! it is possible but it quite complex00:56
afeijoiceroot, one of my partitions is NTFS with over 500gb, no need to copy that00:57
KM0201adam_: ... i've been using it about that long.. but i don't recall ever chatting w/ you.. but im glad you've got everything going.00:57
icerootafeijo: ok00:57
Mandrewok with what software can i do that adam_ ?00:57
afeijoiceroot, the 512 byte should direct to my first linux partition, the root one right? so it is sdb200:57
zonylHi All. I am not able to add icons to the panel.  I check Gconf "locked down" setting and that is not enable either.  Anyone else have an idea?00:58
icerootafeijo: i would do the following , copy the first 512byte, then copy all partions you want, then delete the partions on the new drive you dont need and realocate the space (gparted)00:58
icerootafeijo: no00:58
itaylor57KM0201, i only have 26 yrs unix/linux experience00:58
icerootafeijo: the first 512byte of the drive, so sdb instead of sdb200:58
KM0201itaylor57: lol freakin newbs.00:58
icerootafeijo: not the first 512byte of a partition00:58
adam_Mandrew, not with a single software but a nightmare of multiple commands. A google search to a tutorial is appropriated in this case00:58
afeijoI mean, of=/dev/sda200:59
afeijoif=/dev/sdb00:59
icerootafeijo: no00:59
adam_Mandrew, the fact is that your system is completely loaded in the memory if you use a live cd00:59
icerootafeijo: sdb is the drive, sda2 is a partition00:59
thephasedwhy isn't there a grub.cfg file in /boot/grub on my usb ubuntu00:59
afeijoyes, my root will be at sda2, not sda100:59
thephasedis there any other way i can add noacpi to grub other than that grub.cfg file?01:00
adam_Mandrew, be sure you have enough to host your installation it would be a live dvd i think01:00
icerootafeijo: is there a reason that it must be 2 and not 1 on the new drive?01:00
godtrunkscan anyone tell me what's the command for ubuntu to check disk?01:00
ibm_Mandrew,  acually there is a program called .......remastersys....that will work on Debian based systems01:00
Mandrewso adam_  the start up disk creator wont cut it then?01:00
aikInsaanhow do i add an application to startup in natty?01:00
afeijoiceroot, I partitioned the new drive to the first partition to be 500gb NTFS, so I can install win7 if needed01:00
adam_KM0201, so you come and help people here everyday ? do you know some people managing the ubuntuforums ?01:01
KM0201!startup | afeijo01:01
ubottuafeijo: To add programs to start up when you log into your Gnome session go to System>Preferences>Sessions and use the Startup Programs tab. For more information, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddingProgramToSessionStartup - See !boot for starting non-interactive programs at boot01:01
somsip!fsck | godtrunks01:01
ubottugodtrunks: fsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot01:01
zonylgodtrunks: fsck /dev/sdx01:01
Mandrewibm_, the start up disk creator wont cut it then?01:01
icerootafeijo: hm01:01
KM0201adam_: i'm here almost every day, yes, i don't hang out on the forums to often, so no.. i dont know anyone who manages the forums01:01
godtrunksit's working on debian aswell??01:01
afeijoiceroot, shall I change it to host ntfs last?01:01
ibm_Mandrew,   more likley end  up being a live DVD though01:01

Guest51695Need to reset my user settings because its screwed up bad on my SU02:07

Guest51695Er, all i saw was him saying "I want to try 10.04 now"02:08
KM0201Guest51695: why were you using su anyway?02:08
Guest51695so i made a comment.02:08
b0nghitterth0r: cool ty i'll try02:08
Guest51695Um.02:08
KM0201Guest51695: then you should have read his whole comment.. he wants to try 10.04, becuase 11.04 is having kernel issues,  so i asked, why does he think 10.04 will fix the prob.02:08
Guest51695I guess its SU, i dunno... It was the only user i could log in under.02:08
Guest51695Is that not the same as "Admin" on winblows?02:08
thephasedKM0201: doesn't 10.04 have an earlier kernel version?02:09
KM0201Guest51695: not really.02:09
dsnydersncolis, there is a tee command that pipes an input stream to two output streams02:09
KM0201thephased: yes, but.. i'm trying to understand why you think you won't have this problem in an earlier kernel, thats all.. i'm not saying you won't, just trying to figure out your reasoning02:09
nocilisdsnyders looking into that, thanks02:09
thephasedIt doesn't hurt to try. Process of elimination02:10
sgo11hi, do anyone know how to remove a group in empathy (msn protocol). I tried many ways, it's still present in Edit Contact button after removal. thanks.02:10
thephasedI've searched all around the web for what "net: registered protocol family 1"02:10
thephasedactually means02:10
thephasedeveryone says to just boot acpi=off or maxcpus=102:10
Guest51695Ok, but plz KM0201 dont brake the so far unblemished sanctity of this room for me... Most linux distro people i have met over the years are always uppity, rude and have a god complex. This one has been very nice and helpful. Dont be a dick and ruin it plz =(02:10
KM0201thephased: ok, thinking about this logically, since kernels to to "progress" rather than "regress"... why would you think it would work better in an earlier kernel, than a current one?... if anything, you would want to go to a newer one.02:11
yagoodsnyders, ls -la | tee logging.txt .. and ls -la still displays02:11
yagoonocilis, ls -la | tee logging.txt .. and ls -la still displays02:11
U236WillyWhy can I go to my applications and select 'gtkpod' and it starts right up, However, neither Synaptic, dpkg, or apt-get remove see it as installed.  2nd quest.... how do i get rid of it.. I'd like to 'think' about compiling a new version.02:11
KM0201Guest51695: if you think i was being a dick, then that just shows your misunderstanding of what i said.02:11
NorthernenHow can one view .vmw and similar files in Linux?02:11

DanaG"registered protocol family" is an insignificant message.02:11
Guest51695You can be a dick without knowing your a dick. Just sayin =p02:11
thephasedKM0201: Yeah kernels progress. Someone recommended me to try an earlier version02:11
DanaGthephased: what's the actual problem?02:11
nocilisor pipe the output but don't block it from showing yagoo02:12
KM0201Guest51695: guess the same thing applies to being clueless, huh?02:12
DanaGIs it booting to there and then hanging?02:12
KM0201DanaG: thats what i've been trying to get out of him.02:12
Guest51695Oh im clueless... I have been using ubuntu for a whole maybe 2 weeks.02:12
thephasedyeah DanaG, just hangs02:12
DanaGAh.02:12
thephasedcan i make it bypass the hang?02:12
thephasedif i hit a key it will still boot02:12
thephasedperformance wise there isn't a problem with 11.04 for me02:12
DanaGtry booting with "ignore_loglevel debug" instead of "quiet splash"?02:12
kondorescan someone msg me in private window? just for test02:12
KM0201thephased: so if you hit a key, it bypasses the error, and continues booting?02:12
thephasedyes at least for amd6402:12
NorthernenHow can one view .vmw and similar files in Linux?02:12

dsnyderssam555, mark it as writeable, then delete it.02:15
thephasedoh alright02:15

Northernensam555, chmod +w nameoffile. Then rm it.02:17
U236Willyi upgraded to 11.04 and I'm not sure how i added it in a previous vers.02:17
xanguaNorthernen: ok my google-fu sucks at the moment :S ignore all i said02:17
sam555dsnyders: and Northernen i renamed it to something simple, did chmod and the rm and it worked!02:17
sam555thanks again!02:17
dsnydersnp02:18
Northernensam555, no need to rename it. Linux have tab completion!02:18
U236WillyThe program shows up in 'Applications' and loads but synaptic, dpkg and apt-get remove can't remove what they say doesn't exist.02:18
sam555Northernen: i know, but it wasn't working and I think that was part of why I was having issues with the deletion in the first place02:18

m0nso i've been having issues with my bluetooth on my Toshiba NB550D. I've found a "fix" for it, but the fix doesn't seem to stay.

obeyanceMy computers doing that Fullscreen bug again.03:15
jen_hello03:16
adurodeabastidrazor: hi03:16
xiaqm0n: A little cleaner solution is to blacklist ath3k from automatic loading and load it manually in /etc/rc.local03:16
pete_^this03:16
jen_can someone by chance help me install my wacom disk?03:16
m0nhmmmmmmmmmmm it's just that the toshiba_bluetooth module is taking precedence over the ath3k module.03:16
obeyanceHow do i fix it again? I remember turnning off the hardware acceleration from a youtube video then turning off and back on another setting then reenabling the hardware acceleration from the yt video again and accepting.03:17
m0nas soon as the ath3k module is loaded it's detecting the card as per normal.03:17
yagoojen_, wacom disk? thought they only make digitizer03:17
obeyanceBut i dont remember exactly.03:17
jen_digitizer? sorry dont know03:17
m0nso if i blacklist the toshiba_bluetooth module and force the ath3k module to load at start it SHOULD fix it right?03:17

obeyanceThat version?03:20
obeyanceDo you know a different fix for the fullscreen video bug?03:20
obeyanceI googled this and forum lurked for a while before i finally came to this and asked a few days ago.03:21
obeyanceSo im just for asking, maybe you coudl point me to an information point that i coudl search better though.03:22

pete_do i know you?03:26
hoshi411all my pics have the prefix thmb_ on the front03:26
jen_anyone have a wacom tablet in here?03:26
hoshi411I want to remove that prefix03:26
hoshi411for example03:27
hoshi411mv thmb_* .03:27
hoshi411or something like that03:27
hoshi411mv thmb_* ./03:27
xiaqhoshi411: rename03:27
hoshi411just want to remove the thmb_ prefix in their file names03:27
xiaqhoshi411: rename 's/^thmb_//' *03:28
hoshi411xiaq: wow that is really complicated....03:28
hoshi411xiaq: there's no simpler way to do it with mv03:28
xiaqhoshi411: Just regex...03:28
hoshi411xiaq: regex is tricky03:29
robin0800Eber, you can do sudo aptitude update and then sudo aptitude safe-upgrade but answer no to install03:29
xiaqhoshi411: I know in DOS you can ren thmb_* *03:29
hoshi411xiaq: exactly. that's so simple03:30
hoshi411xiaq: I can't mv thmb_* *03:30
=== CapTech is now known as Charybdis
xiaqhoshi411: That's because mv cannot rename multiple files...03:31
xiaqhoshi411: Also in *nix the wildcard expands in the shell03:31
xiaqhoshi411: Say you have "thmb_a foo" in you PWD03:32
xiaq`mv thmb_* *` would expand to `mv thmb_a foo thmb_a`03:32
xiaqhoshi411: That's incorrect of course03:32
xiaqhoshi411: Behavior of wildcards is up to the shell03:32
xiaqhoshi411: However in the DOS case the `ren` commands gives the wildcard a new meaning03:33
em./w 303:33
xiaqhoshi411: One could implement a DOS-like ren command in Linux03:33
hoshi411xiaq: thank you I think I understand now03:34
xiaqhoshi411: But then you'll have to type `ren 'thmb_*' '*'` to prevent the shell from expanding the *03:34
xiaqhoshi411: You're welcome ;)03:34
hoshi411xiaq: looks like I need some kind of rename app or script if I wanna do this myself in the future03:34
xiaqhoshi411: rename is just fine though the regex looks bad03:34
smp4488how do i configure x to launch a custom session i have in /usr/share/xsessions?03:34
hoshi411im pretty good with the terminal but not good with regex. I have always struggled with it03:35
hoshi411xiaq: by the way . your regex command did not work for some reason O_o03:35
hoshi411it executed in the terminal without any errors but my files have not been renamed O_003:35
xiaqhoshi411: Hmm... let me see03:35
hoshi411xiaq: dont worry about it.  I will search for a renaming utility03:36
hoshi411I have to be able to do this myself in the future03:36
hoshi411I am just doing this for learning purpose mostly03:36
hoshi411but I do actually need to rename these files03:36
xiaqhoshi411: Alright but I guess you'll end up with rename :)03:36

joesephSo, If I set my ubuntu server to a static IP address, can I still access it by server name?03:41
PythonPupjoeseph, That depend on whether your dns or hosts has the static IP and the hostname.03:43

joesephSo, do routers generally work as local DNS servers?03:45

PythonPupjoeseph, go to a command prompt and type    nslookup name     That will tell you if your basic name resolution understands name, where name is the name of the machine with a static IP.03:49

PythonPupdanie655, There is a list at  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecommendedHardware.  wifi is  sometimes a weak spot, because some wifi vendors don't release enough information for drivers to be written.  It is generally easy to fix, though.04:13
PythonPupdanie655, Is wireless N important to you, or would wireless G suffice?04:15

jen_hey does anyone know how to get tinychat to work from ubuntu?04:18
PythonPupdanie655, There seems to be a binary, non-open driver for the Dell 1395 card which I believe you have.  If you can connect to the internet with a wired connection, you should be able to install and activate it.  Personally, I would get another NIC, since I only want hardware that uses open drivers, but that is my choice and you can make your own.04:19
PythonPupdanie655, connect with a wired ethernet connection, go to System/Administration/Hardware drivers and the rest should be obvious and it should work fine.04:21

vivekimsitPythonPup:it was not program, it was just a simple directory..04:38
dlivivekimsit, if not found in trashbin, no easy way to undelete04:38
soulis77-SEIn total 12 attempts. Should I care?04:38
somsipsoulis77-SE: If there is no file there, don't worry about it. They're just fishing for open files04:38
vivekimsitdli: that is waht i want to know..can i do it?04:38
glebihannkh1, the role of the "-p" option" is explained in there : it is used to modify the names of the files in the patch, by removing a certain number of leading slashes04:39
PythonPupvivekimsit, It was a program.  Maybe it was Nautilus.  Are you running Gnome or Unity?04:39
somsipsoulis77-SE: But that's a 200, so your phpMyAdmin is open. Consider .htpasswd in a sub dir off root04:39
dlivivekimsit, remember unix doesn't rely on magic 'undelete', but the unix 101: backup04:39
nkh1glebihan: Ow and that problem with repos fixed, the problem was with apt or dpkg itself , I had a new installation without formatting previous drive and the new installation recognized repos like file:/media/deb.... , ignoring but installing , the previous installation did not install any thing from there.04:39
glebihannkh1, -p0 keeps the full path, -p1 removes 1 leading slash, -p2 removes 2...04:39
nkh1glebihan: Owwww Thanks !04:40
glebihannkh1, great04:40

babuwhat's the diff bn updating ubuntu 10.04 and upgrading to newer version04:42
soulis77-SEsomsip: yeah I got hacked with like 200 attempts one week ago. Not I tried making it safer but I'll add the .ht...   Thanks for the help.04:43
PythonPupThe simple answer is that you can't recover it at this point.  The real answer is that the data is likely on the hard drive and if it is valuable enough, it can be recovered.04:43
vivekimsitPythonPup: yaa, i need to recover it somehow04:43
babuwhen i updating , it updates all packages n when i 'm upgrading it installs newer pkg...tite?04:44
PythonPupbabu, un update just gets you the fixes for 10.04.  An upgrade takes you to 10.10, which is a newer version.04:44
somsipsoulis77-SE: I used to chmod 700 /var/www/tools and keep things  like phpMyAdmin in there, and only chomd 770 when I needed access. But I get the idea htpasswd is secure04:44
PythonPupvivekimsit, Is your hard drive encrypted?  Mine are, so it is certainly possible.04:44
babuPythonPup, i don't get you..... you mean there will be the diff in system env04:44
babubabu:04:45
vivekimsitPythonPup:no!04:45
PythonPupbabu, After an update, your version will still be 10.04.  Maybe it will be 10.04.2,, but it is still basically 10.04.  The kernel will still be 2.6.32. something.04:46
soulis77-SEsomsip: thanks, I'll consider that too. Will not be using the phpMyadmin when the site is finished so then I could chmod or "remove the virtual link".04:46
PythonPupvivekimsit, If the data is really important.  power off the computer at once.  Don't shut down.  Power it off.  Then use a disk scanner which you run from a boot CD or boot USB disk and search the disk for the data.04:47
madhuI have doubt on grub04:48
vivekimsitmadhu:ok04:51
vivekimsitPythonPup: but that is possible only for the open files , i think ?04:53

lumoshi if i have this line in a file and want to add multiple arguments how would i $fontPath = "";04:54
vivekimsitPythonPup: probably there is not any sol. i think04:55
PythonPuplumos, There is no answer for all programs.04:55
lumosPythonPup, how would i find the answer depending on the program04:55
PythonPupvivekimsit, It is not easy to recover deleted data.  I have done it.  If it is on the disk and worth the trouble, it can be retrieved.04:55

FloodBot1lumos: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.04:56
PythonPupvivekimsit, But, it is a fair amount of work and something you need to research before proceeding.  But, if you truly think you might do it, it is imperitive that the mache be powered off.  The longer it runs, the more likely the data will be overwritten.  That space is marked as free now, and the OS may use it.04:57
vivekimsitPythonPup: is there not any other way round because i have not the live CD04:58
lumosPythonPup, plz help04:58
PythonPuplumos, the issue is not the set of fonts.  It is what programs config file you are looking at.  You will need to research that program to see what it expects.04:58
lumosPythonPup, thats fine, i just need to know the syntax04:59
lumosi cant program04:59
PythonPupvivekimsit, There is no simple way that I know of to accomplish what you want.  In the old DOS days with smaller drives, there was a way.  But, not today.04:59
lumosvivekimsit, what are you trying to do05:00
lumosi am curious05:00
vivekimsitPythonPup: thknx for ur concern and support05:00
lumoscmon PythonPup05:01
lumosi heard you are really smart05:01
vivekimsitPythonPup: i hv decided to do it now..can u tell me the detailed procedure?05:02
PythonPupvivekimsit, No.  It would take more time than I have.  I hope I gave you enough info to start your research, though.05:04
lumosPythonPup, what did he want to do05:04
PythonPupHe wants to recover deleted data from his hard drive.  Truly deleted, not just in the trash.05:05

thephasedi did it before in ubuntu, i just forgot the apt-get line05:29
thephasedi tried apt-get install nvidia-xconfig05:29
thephaseddidn't work05:29
vivekimsitthephased: the correct syntax is : sudo apt-get install nvidia-xconfig not i tried05:31
slack-m#pugbot NEEDS 3 TO START NOW! Also check out the newly re-designed website: http://pugbot.com/05:31
thephasedyeah i used sudo05:31
zykotick9thephased, nvidia-xconfig is a separate package on Debian, but I believe on Ubuntu it's always been bundled with the main driver or glx package (probably the latter)05:31
thephasedok. yeah would i have to do sudo apt-get install nvidia-current05:32
thephasedi don't need the driver. i already installed the driver05:32
thephasedill just try nvidia-current05:33
thephasedhopefully it doesn't mess things up05:33
zykotick9thephased, if you've manually installed the driver from nvidia.com, see if they have a download for nvidia-xconfig.  Mixing ubuntu & nvidia.com is probably not wise.05:33

ActionParsnipVee: ok i'll assume its some onboard Intel thing. Try using the bootoption: nomodeset05:40
newbnewboh, sorry. well, I have this Acer Aspire ONE that I had connected to an external hp monitor05:40
newbnewbI was working on some financial stuff that I need to save05:41
newbnewbI was moving the laptop to a different location, and I changed the monitor settings to "turn off external, and turn on laptop screen"05:41
ActionParsnipNexus: did you check the appdb for compatibility?05:41
newbnewbI hit 'apply', but both screens went blank, and it didn't return to the previous setting after I waited a while05:41

newbnewbI tried plugging in a different monitor, but still no luck05:43
newbnewbSwedeMike: yeah, browser05:43
ActionParsnipVee: keeping bios up to date may help, check what issues the new version solves and be VERY sure you are doing it right and using the correct image05:43
SwedeMikenewbnewb: does your laptop have like fn-f4 which changes screen output settings? have you tried it?05:44

bullgard4amit_: It depends on the actual hardware. My experience is that Ubuntu in general does drain more  battery current than Wincows XP but not so "very much". You can reduce Ubuntu battery current drain to values comparable with Windows XP by considerable individual tinkering though.06:19

dobeFEguyquestion: so I've got some friends that work at google and HP that used to help me out a lot on here among other venues, but they have been very silent lately. SO I talked to one guy tonight, and he said (his words not mine) that the moderators here aren't keen on being corrected and they ban folks that question them. One of the guys at HP got pretty mad and switched his entire division to Mint, and the google guys having similar experienc06:31
dobeFEguyes are thinking of following suit and customizing their own Mint distro. So my question is, with big players like this jumping out should we be looking at Mint (and isn't Mint part of Ubuntu?), and what is up with the moderators, are they really that bad? I've witnessed some hasty ego banning, but not that often it didn't seem like. Sorry if that is a dumb question, Im pretty new to linux and the community06:31
rwwdobeFEguy: Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu, no.06:31

zykotick9zilch, sorry I can't help with you ATI issue, just wanted you to know the "...released in October 2010" wasn't required, we can see from the version when something is released.06:35
dobeFEguyrww: i dont think I have any ops questions, my situation is that my company is about to invest a lot of work into linux, and we had decided on ubuntu, but now with the guys who were my biggest help gone, and 2 huge companies switching to Mint because of the modrators here, do I stick with ubuntu, or follow them to mint?06:36
m0nzilch, there's 2 methods of install fglrx if you are interested in using that. if not, add the xorg-edgers ppa for the open-source drivers, which is fully supported, but does not grant as much performance as the proprietary drivers06:36
zilch_m0n, zykotick9  thanks a lot ... doing fglrx06:38
dobeFEguyrww: my buddy just pinged me and said he just tried to logon to meet me here and is still banned06:38

I enabled the wireless in system setup and disabled the HW switch to remove that from consideration. rfkill shows the device and shows it unblock06:39

m0nYankDownUnder, LOL ok. It's a bluetooth issue. Ubuntu is loading the toshiba_bluetooth driver and assigning that to the bluetooth card. Problem is this doesn't allow it to work. I've used the ath3k driver (it's an ATH3011) and this works, but i only managed to get it to work with one restart then it reloads the toshiba driver again06:48

HackNewtonhi all i want to know is there GNOME 3 avaible for ubuntu ?06:49

zykotick9!gnome306:49
ubottuGnome 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.06:49
textwisterYankDownUnder: In blacklist.conf I have bcm43xx.  But in blacklist-bcm43.conf I also have bcm43xx, as well as b43 and b43legacy. Which of these do I comment out?  And do I uninstall the STA driver first?06:49
YankDownUnderm0n, Blacklist the toshiba driver (you should be able to ID it through doing an "lsmod") and then add that to the blacklist.conf => reboot, see what happens. As well, you can force the Atheros driver to load.06:49
YankDownUndertextwister, Unblacklist them from each, then restart, try "jockey-gtk" to see if it will recognise the proper driver at that point my friend.06:50

textwisterpratz_:  Not a scribus expert, but it sounds like the pdf renderer is trying to render characters for which it can't find an appropriate guide.  If you are set to use UTF-8 encoding but are using non-UTF8 fonts, I think that might cause it -- but using specialty fonts might as well (many of them don't include all characters.)07:39

obertand sorry if i'm getting your time without a serious report07:50
obertwols_: ubuntu 607:50
wols_obert: and why do you need to format it?07:50
obertwols_: it is obsolete07:50
wols_that is no reason. e.g. if you need to install another OS there you don't need to format anything. so why do you want to do it?07:51
noisewaterphdobert: for mounting iso just use the mount command, or this link shows you the gui way I guess, but Ive never tried it that way: http://hacktivision.com/index.php/2008/02/24/how-to-mount-iso-images-in-ubuntu-the-ea?blog=207:51
bullgard4llutz_: '~$ "apt-cache depends banshee; ...; Recommends: brasero.' What does »Recdommend« mean? If I do not install the package brasero, Banshee will still function, but it will not burn CDs(DVDs?07:51
wols_obert: gparted is not needed for what you want to do. mkfs is07:51
noisewaterphdbullgard4, right07:51
obertwols_: why i dont need to format the hd if i want to install mini.iso?07:51
wols_bullgard4: it means "it's probably nice if you installed this too"07:51
llutz_bullgard4: right, "depends" are packages it really depends on to work, "recommends" are feature which might be installed but not essentially needed (like burning cds)07:52
obertuhmf07:52
wols_obert: no. the installer, like any other oeprating system installer, can format before it installs. partition too07:52

abadyhi everyone09:07

andantinoyou are going to scrap xubuntu now?09:07
XubuntuDilemmaabady, good, than you dont have it anymore09:07
abadycan any body help me09:07
tomodachishadeslayer: i have to admin i read a couple of them but didnt follow any of them really. Theres quite some documentation though. Did you try both efi and "normal boot"? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro is the link09:07
XubuntuDilemmaadantino, maybe09:07
andantinois it causing you any problems09:07
tomodachishadeslayer: im using my macbook in efi mode.09:08
andantino?09:08
zykes-Nvidia driver 275.x09:08
XubuntuDilemmathe uninstallion? well, not yet because I'm not starting to do so09:08
andantinoid go for lubuntu over puppy....puppy is purty darn fast but everything is outdated09:08
XubuntuDilemmahehe oh ok09:08
shadeslayertomodachi: sorry, what?09:08
XubuntuDilemmaI'd like to see youtube vids and flash content so I guess Puppy would handle that?09:09
andantinooh ya puppy can do that09:09
abadywith bluetooth driver09:09
andantinobut like the browsers for instace are09:09
andantinolike 3 years behind or somehting09:09
ManetaXubuntuDilemma, yeah for sure09:09
XubuntuDilemmaheh oh ok09:09
Manetait has a flash plugin09:09
andantinoare you dual booting xubuntu?09:10
Manetaor you should try the browser linux witch is based on puppy linux XubuntuDilemma09:10
XubuntuDilemmayep09:10
Manetait comes with flash09:10
andantinook09:10
tomodachishadeslayer: the macbook doeent really have a pc bios or anything. It uses something called EFI. it gives some nice features (like access to both my gfx card etc) but you also lose some features. Read about it on the ubuntu wikis. But if you want to try to boot the laptop from the usb in efi mode i think you need to install refit in macosx first09:10
XubuntuDilemmathanks Maneta, maybe I will09:10
andantinoya puppy has flash09:10
andantinoid still give lubuntu a shot first though09:10
babilenXubuntuDilemma: A common misconception seems to be that you have to install a specific release in order to get the associated window manager. (Kubuntu for KDE, Xubuntu for XFCE, ...). You can, however, easily install any of those on every Ubuntu or Debian installation. There is no need for a reinstall.09:11

andantinoparticularly lxde09:12
shadeslayertomodachi: yes, but after that i can't get GRUB to load09:12
andantinoa lot of things would not work right, and then you end up with bloated menus09:13
XubuntuDilemmabut I'm not sure how my problem would leave..that's why I'm considering either re-install or diffirent distro09:13
tomodachishadeslayer: sorry this is something wich is new to me. Ive installed it on a couple of macbooks (a bit older than yours though) but never had this specific issue09:13
andantinoyour problem is things are running to slowly?09:13

albertoI'm having some serious problems with my TFT monitor. The thing is it has three main visualization modes (Movies, Text and Economic). Well, as long as I keep the Movies mode activated everything works fine, but as soon as I change it or lower the brightness, a strange noise appears along with annoying horizontal lines... Any ideas?10:39
JimXLthegoodcushion mount is the command you use to take a disk partition and make it available for use (read or write)10:39
albertoI've already checked the connections and everything's ok.10:39
thegoodcushionJimXL: well yes10:39
Slartalberto: faulty hardware.. ie broken monitor10:39
thegoodcushionbut surely / is mounted always10:40
thegoodcushionhow can you not have a /10:40
JimXLthegoodcushion It's always mounted, right.10:40
JimXLBut on a live cd, a ram file system is mounted on /10:40
albertoSlart Yes, that's what I think. I came into this channel because no one answers me in #hardware10:40
Slartalberto: many monitors have some kind of electronic hum when you lower the brightness so that's not very worrying.. but adding horizontal lines on the screen is not common and would make me worry10:40
the_hulkis there any know problem installing ubuntu 11.4 on windows 64 bit in virtual box?10:41
JimXLSo if your root file system is on /dev/sda1 you could mount /dev/sda1 /mnt;cd /mnt;cat >x.txt    for instance.10:41

backtrackloverwhen i connect to the internet using my atheros wireless card its very slow10:42
backtrackloververy slow when i surf the net10:42
Slartalberto: sounds like something inside your monitor isn't happy.. I would put it in movie mode and be happy while it works10:42
backtrackloverwhy10:42
Slartalberto: or send it back if you've got some guarantee left10:42
albertoSlart I don't :(10:42
albertoSlart It hurts my eyes having to look at the monitor with such a high brightness.10:43
JimXLalberto wear dark glasses?10:43
Slartalberto: yup.. most monitors these days are very bright at the default setting.. not really sure if you can do anything about it from a software point of view.. use some weird gnome theme or set the theme colors to something a bit more greyish10:44

noobie25is there a best way to install my nvidia drivers?10:53
noobie25i've been killing my bootup all this time and finally got it working.10:54
noobie25i finally got it to boot, but don't know how to go about installing the nvidia drivers.10:54
Top-topSlart: thx10:55
AFDnoobie25 - it might depend on your hardware10:55
AFDnoobie25 some people recommend using official drivers, others non-official ones10:55
noobie25AFD: i'd like to follow any advice you give me... what should i do?10:55
thrillERboyHi, If I install Ubuntu with root (/) and /home in different partitions, Am I better off, when Ubuntu crashes?10:56
AFDnoobie25 well I have Nvidia Ion2 and the official nvidia drivers break my boot if I install them10:56
thrillERboySince I can re-install OS on / without touching /home, where all user files live10:56
AFDnoobie25 so I use generic drivers (I think!)10:56
arfbtwnthrillERboy: your data is safe if the system breaks. correct.10:57
JimXLthrillERboy Nothing wrong with that/10:57
ThinkT510thrillERboy: both partitions will need to be checked if there is a crash10:57
JimXLI've been doing it for years.10:57
thrillERboyThinkT510: then How do I only reinstall the OS without touching user data?10:58
JimXLBut you're more likely to want to upgrade an os rather than reinstall.10:58
AFDnoobie25 if you can research your gpu model by googling "gpu_model_name ubuntu" and see what experiences others have with the various drivers you will likely have the best performing system without breaking any boot stuff10:59
thrillERboysometimes ubuntu breaks and all I can see is the grub menu, those times I'm left with no options that to reinstall11:00
ThinkT510thrillERboy: by installing it normally, but when you specify the /home partition don't format it and make sure you use the same username11:00
JimXLthrillERboy boot the install cd and configure the parttioner to use your existing home and NOT reformat it.11:00
wols_thrillERboy: no11:00

ThinkT510thrillERboy: the grub documentation is very straightforward for ubuntu11:02
wols_noobie25: do you want 3D?11:02
thrillERboyEven ls doesn't works in Grub, I know its lame to use ls on a bootloader, but I'm just saying, I'm lost If I See grub CLI :D11:02
noobie25wols_: these are the instructions i found on the web....3 commands.   is this okay??   sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current11:03
Sahootraok what is the problem can you explain in one line ?11:03
noobie25wols_:   yes, i'd like 3D to use openGL.11:03
thrillERboyThinkT510: May be I'll learn my way around it, someday. I know reinstalling OS is just lame.11:03
wols_noobie25: it's not OK. I said drivers ubuntu comes with. not any ppas11:03
wols_noobie25: then free drivers can't really be used. you will need proprietary drivers.11:03
noobie25wols_:  how can i abort current installation?11:04

ThinkT510Mandrew: sorry, i'm not sure what to suggest. do you run any other operating systems on it?12:22
MandrewThinkT510,  but im thinking there must be a way to turn up the fan speed12:22
Anthony25nwidger : ppa:mozillateam/thunderbird-stable12:22
Anthony25stable version12:22
gulzarwhat is the alternative of 'gnome-disk-utility' in KDE?12:22
Mandrewno ThinkT510 its the only one running on my netbook right now12:23
ThinkT510Mandrew: i'd assume the fan speed would be on full anyway when it abruptly shuts off12:23
Mandrewhmm but ThinkT510 there odd to be a way to have it on full all the time, or i might be totally wrong here12:24
ThinkT510Mandrew: have you used any other os's on it previously? if so did they ever overheat and shutdown?12:24
nwidgerAnthony25: thanks! :D12:24
dydhow to change user by command line?12:24
MandrewThinkT510, youe ive tried xubuntu 11.04 and ubuntu 9.04, 9.10, 10.04 and 10.10 with no problems12:25
Anthony25Mandrew for the menu you change it with the cardapio menu ? (I've found a how to and it seems to be the same like your menu)12:25

Anthony25thanks Madrew ;)12:26

TheHackOpsdyd, With samba?12:27
dydTheHackOps: yes12:27
ThinkT510Mandrew: ahh, can you tell me the specs of the netbook?12:27
Mandrewsure ThinkT510 , can you give me the cmd to the CLI for that?12:28
TheHackOpsdyd, Do you have samba config installed?12:28
ThinkT510Mandrew: lspci12:28
GermHi, I have a problem with my system. :\12:29
dydTheHackOps: don't know, but if i try to share via gui it gives error 255, i tried to chown the folder but it didn't work12:29
Rei`ZzZzMandrew: Are you saying 80C is NORMAL or high load?12:29
TheHackOpsGerm, ??12:29
Rei`ZzZzGerm: What is the problem?12:29
=== Rei`ZzZz is now known as Reikoku
GermWhen I boot up, ubuntu only loads a terminal that is full screen and cannot be exited. I have to startx and run a gnome-panel & via command line. I don't know what is causing this problem but :\12:29
oalEvolution or Thunderbird or something else? I'm thinking about moving from gmail's web interface to a dedicated mail client. Suggestions?12:29
ReikokuSaying you have a problem with your system is a bit like going to a doctor and saying you have a problem with your body :P12:29
MandrewThinkT510, http://paste.ubuntu.com/649057/12:29
ReikokuGerm: Does it work fine when you startx?12:30
GermYes12:30
ReikokuIf so you probably broke gdm12:30
GermWell I was told to reinstall it :\12:30
Germso I deleted it then reinstalled it.12:30
ReikokuWell, one way around it is reinstall gdm or another DE12:30
TheHackOpsdyd, looking now for u hold a sec12:30
GermI don't know any other gdm :\12:31
DmoleGerm: how did you del and reinstall it?12:31
dydTheHackOps: thank you12:31
GermYes, I'm sure that I did that.12:31
ReikokuI think you may have to tell it to start on boot again12:31
ThinkT510Mandrew: thanks, can i also see your uname -a12:31
dydTheHackOps: btw i have this error if i login with a domain account, if i join with local admin account it works12:31
GermI don't know howto do that though :(12:31
ReikokuGerm, to see if it's installed, can you exit x and try gdm instead of startx12:31
DmoleGerm: you might need to add GDM to /etc/init.d/ with ..... what was that tool12:32
ReikokuDmole: nano?12:32
GermReikoku: I know it is installed. I re installed it.12:32
GermI just need it to boot on startup.12:32
TheHackOpsdyd, whats ur network setup??12:32
ReikokuGerm: Does it work though?12:32
GermYes,12:32
ReikokuThere are 2 potential issues:12:32
DmoleGerm: chkconfig12:32
ReikokuOK12:32
BarzoghGerm try slim or xdm , those are nice12:33
dydTheHackOps: i have this ubuntu standalone installation, i made it join the domain12:33
ReikokuI use slim12:33
dydTheHackOps: now i want to share a hd on this machine12:33
MandrewThinkT510, http://paste.ubuntu.com/649063/12:33
DmoleGerm: or update-rc.d12:33
dydTheHackOps: and want that share to be accessible to all domain users12:33
TheHackOpsdyd, Prmary??12:33
ReikokuI'm not registered to the Ubuntu forum so I can't see the threads12:34
GermDmole: it says gdm is off.12:34
TheHackOpsdyd, and no windows involved right??12:34
DmoleGerm: that would do it12:34
ReikokuI would imagine there's a tool to edit rc.conf automatically12:34
dydTheHackOps: i set up a softwareraid on 2 hds, now i have an unique disk named /media/RAID12:34
TheHackOpsdyd, http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/5627/sambaserverconfiguratio.jpg12:34
GermNow I have another question, how do I turn gdm on ?12:34
ThinkT510Mandrew: ok, since this is your first install that your using backups i'm guessing it is your machine overheating12:34
TheHackOpsdyd, do u have that util??12:35
dydTheHackOps: strange thing is that if i login with local account, i can share work, if i login with domain account i can't share, probably a permission problem12:35
DmoleGerm: sec I'm checking what it should be12:35
ThinkT510Mandrew: there may be other processes running that add to the effect of overheating12:35
Germok :)12:35
TheHackOpsdyd, can u chmod 777??12:35
dydTheHackOps: now i'm on local admin account, i can12:36
Mandrewok ThinkT510 so im guessing that one way is to address the fans to get the heat down12:36
hellyeahhey12:36
dydTheHackOps: maybe i just have to add domain account to local admin group12:36
zaksoldierHi12:36
zaksoldierHi all12:36
ThinkT510Mandrew: if you want to keep your current setup i'd suggest disabling the backup system (unless you need it)12:36
hellyeahi am using ubuntu 11.10 i took that error while try to install some package http://dpaste.com/573209/ what can i do12:36
Picihellyeah : Oneiric/11.10 is not yet released. Please join #ubuntu+1 for further support and discussion.12:36
GermHow can you use an OS version that isn't yet released :\12:37
ThinkT510Mandrew: then if it keeps overheating you may need to consider using a lighter version12:37
TheHackOpsdyd, Maybe, but if u chmod 777 inside a local network it should be fine12:37
ReikokuDevelopment release12:37
PiciGerm: There are alphas.12:37
Germoh12:37
TheHackOpsdon't reccomend it outside a local network though12:37
Mandrewthe thin is that ive had these problems before i installed the back up software12:37
GermThat would be so buggy though :\12:37
TheHackOpsHas anyone got flash working flawless?12:38
dydTheHackOps: let me try12:38
ThinkT510Mandrew: the key is to avoid overtaxing the cpu, and it's not only the backup system that does that12:38
TheHackOpsthats why i came here12:38
TheHackOpsbut i get caught up helping12:38
MandrewThinkT510, can i down grade to 10.04 or 10.10 and still keep my setup?12:38
dydTheHackOps: :D12:38
ThinkT510Mandrew: i'm not sure, cos it looks like you are using unity12:38

Reikokuhellyeah: The difference is probably that you'll experience issues which are useful to ubuntu 11.10 developers12:41
Reikokuas they want to get rid of them12:41
hellyeahi didnt see a lot of difference between 11.10 and 11.0412:41
ReikokuSo having an 11.10 channel helps them get rid of them12:41

vltAbhijit: restart gnome-panel? How?13:34
YankDownUnderLynx___, One of the tough bits is that you've got a minimal installation - and you'll have to either install the applications (GTK/Gnome) to adjust your display settings, or do it manually13:34
wols_BluesKaj: that hasn't been doing anything for ages now13:34
signal_does anyone know a method to find out on console, if there are 2 monitors plugged into my pc?13:34
Abhijitvlt, right click on it13:34

wols_signal_: xrandr maybe?13:34

JimXLInteresting, it's off on my system too.13:36

BluesKajwols_, don't be too dismissive, there are those with special graphics needs that still need it13:38

wols_JimXL: I wouldn't say better, just different :)13:43

JimXLBut for all intents and purposes either are quite acceptable.13:44
BluesKaj!aptitude | JimXL13:44

pseubodotkeane: s/close/block/13:51

david_bi want to install http://pyaudiere.org/ via 'sudo dpkg -i pyaudiere-0.2-py2.5-i386.deb'. i already installed python2.5 on the netbook, and if i write 'python' in my terminal window it even starts python 2.5.6 but still wenn i try to install pyaudiere it tells me: pyaudiere depends on python2.5 (>=2.5.2); however: Package python2.5 is not installed14:30
david_bany idea why this is happening? i installed python2.5 via the official python-page and then ran a ./configure-make-make install14:31
tiox{Low] There's really no other place to ask this, none I know of anyway, so I'll ask here. Is there any way for DockbarX to have scalable window previews?14:32

david_bJimXL that means? i should have installed it via apt-get?14:32
JimXLdavid_b yes14:32
Picidavid_b: The last supported stable release that python2.5 was available in was Hardy14:32

seaquakeOK so I'm on Ubuntu 10.10... OSS isn't in Ubuntu (at all) any more.  So I'm using ALSA/PulseAudio (the default).  Is it possible for OSS4 and my existing setup to co-exist?  I have some apps (no source, no updates) that are OSS only.14:33

OliPicardand only provide access to 1) the update service and 2) internal IP config14:35
JimXLdavid_b you could always run it in a container.14:35
Picidavid_b: It looks like libaudiere-1.9.4 isn't availble in 11.04 either, either look for a PPA or try installing it from source.14:35

quick-no i just get that initramfs and i have to do i hard shutdown . it's working fine in amd athlon but not in amd athlon x214:52
JimXLquick-: do as dli says and use the arrow keys and delete and backspace keys.14:52
JimXLOK to get to grub menu hold the shift key down while booting.14:53

camdentdli: don't know if there's a ctrl-alt-del equivalent in ubuntu, but i've had to do a hard shutdown with the power button every time.14:58
JimXLChris_Gr: I can't help since I'm running grub not grub2.  You have to add some lines into the grub configuration to tell it where to find the windows partition.14:59

dliradesmrade, do you know about your raid0 devices? at least, do: sudo fdisk -l15:06
camdenthow do I solve my computer freezing in the first place issue?15:06
dlicamdent, do memtest is a good idea15:06
wols_obeyance: no it's not. I think (not totally sure) you can install windows from harddisk, but this is a windows question and off topic here. go and ask ##windows15:06
obeyanceIm digging onlnie while asking here for my question. The problem with finding the answer online is that... Theres 500 million "Install ubuntu on windos" but not the other way around.15:06
djltagahitin: you can in fact install multiple display managers at the same time and choose which to use during the login screen, so try them out each15:06
HITINdjltaga: does lbuntu has same installation process as ubuntu?15:07
radesmradedli: I did fdisk -l, md0 is not listed - there are partitions that make up raid array though15:07

obeyancewols_ Well i know you can install from virtual drive, in windows environment, but i dont know if the same is possible in Linux.15:08
camdentdli: how do I do memtest?  I really know almost nothing about how to use ubuntu.  i understand the concept of the command line interface, but I don't know the vocabulary to get things done.15:08
wols_HITIN: yes. burn cd, put cd into drive and boot from it. it installs15:08
HITINdjltaga: i will try it out once i understand what actually is a display manager.15:08
obeyanceWols_ So this IS a linux/Ubuntu question.15:08
dliradesmrade, sure, can you identify the partitions?15:08
quick-dli: how can i change the quiet splash  in kernel image in the live cd or the usb ?15:09
wols_obeyance: no it's not. how to install windows is NOT a ubuntu question and you CANNOT install it when running a LInux OS. go away with your question15:09
HITINwols_: i tried that with ubuntu but it stays on boot screen, nothing happens15:09
obeyancewols_ Take off the word windows and the question still remins.15:09

DamnSoGooDwols_ , what can i do to install ubuntu to my SSD?15:10

DeathKnighthow do i share files with ubuntu guest and ubuntu host in virtualbox?15:45
obeyanceduckydan, I know i can because i have a bootable install on a flash drive that works on my laptop... just not this PC.15:45
JimXLDeathKnight: assuming you have the network configured properly you can use nfs15:46
HackerIIif its just a pc, chances are its not set to boot first from usb15:46
duckydanobeyance: In my experience, the booting from USB is not yet anywhere near as stable as using a gold old CD. Some BIOS versions are very picky about it.15:47
DeathKnightJimXL, i.. didnt understand. is it different that sharing between linux host and windows guest? isnt it simple like that?15:47
duckydan*good old15:47
JimXLDeathKnight: you might be able to use samba, but nfs is probably a better option.15:47
HackerIIunetbootin works well, I've done it plenty of times. especially on eee pc's15:48
jianfeipici, jokes aside,, considering we have to put up with unity gui, are there any plans by Mark. S. to roll out a Metro gui?15:48
JimXLDeathKnight: run nfs server on the machine with the files to share and nfs client on the remote machine15:48
leonard_yeah I've decided Unity is a shocker15:48
JimXLIMHO configuring nfs is easier than configuring Samba.  But that's 'cause I have done it more often.15:49
DeathKnightok, will check.15:49
leonard_i wish there was a windows 3.1 style interface, openbox, but the menus dont work properly15:49

buhmanI'm trying to configure failover link aggregation, and it would appear to be working for the moment, but I'm not exactly sure whether it is actually configured properly: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/443617/ I want eth1 to be the primary adapter, which it was when I first brought bond0 up, but then it seems to immediately switch over to eth015:50
buhmanalso I'm not sure whether I should care or not, but my interfaces are still assigned ip addresses of their own: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/443616/ is there something special I should be doing to eth0 and eth1 themselves?15:50
JimXLUse your favorite search engine to find out about Dropbox15:50

maslen21JimXL: The idea is that the program would be a service running in the background. Occasionally, users might need to start and stop it.15:56
JimXLOK then I'd use sudo15:56
maslen21(for configuration changes, or updating it to a newer version)15:56
maslen21At first I simply gave everyone in the group full sudo access. But I was told that's wrong. So I'd like to do this a *better* way15:57
JimXLLet the program run as whatever user you want and add info in sudo to let individual users or groups to run specific programs.15:57
maslen21(I'm a complete noob though, so 'using sudo' is not enough info for me)15:57
JimXLYou can tell sudo to permit a user access to just on program.15:57
wh1zz0Hi guys15:57
maslen21also, I have no idea how to create an account that could only be used to run this program - and not be used for a logon or anything else. Could you recommend any sources for that?15:58
splnet_workio: thanks for the tip on grub2. I'm using grub-install for an install on an external device. How do I add new commands directly to grub.cfg?  ( I can't use update-grub since it could impact the HOST box)15:59
JimXLmaslen21: jim     ALL=    /bin/kill is an example of a line that would let user jim execute /bin/kill as root.16:00
Numni have problem with the sound.. i got sound before i updated16:01
JimXLmaslen21:  look in /etc/passwd.  Check nobody or apache or www-data users   One or more will have a shell set to /dev/null.  That will prevent logins.16:01
maslen21JimXL: That's all that's required to prevent logons?16:01
JimXLYep.16:02

dan_smaslen21: Hah. :)16:06
JimXLmaslen21: it's probably best to add all your users in a single grup and the give group access to the appservice16:07
vivpI am using this link . And i am not sure what i am supposed to do next16:07
Alphanumerikmaslen21: what you should do is create a group AppletAccess and add users to the group, then on the Applet program, set the group permissions. For the lone user with sole purpose of accessing the applet, set all permission accordingly16:07
vivphttp://www.howtoforge.com/data_recovery_with_testdisk16:07
dan_sNo, my problem is specific to ecryptfs: It "mounts" my /home/dan/.Private, but not correctly -- if I 'ls' my home folder while mounted, it's full of ecryptfs guarded files.16:07
maslen21JimXL: That's pretty much what I want to do. All those users are already in a group.16:08
JimXLAlphanumerik: That'll work if the service can run as user joe or user sam or whatever, if it has to run as specific user then the sudo approach is better.16:08
maslen21Alphanumerik: The biggest (for me) issue is that this is a program under active development - so the files will be changed/replaced quite often.16:09
Alphanumerikat the end of your makefile add the chmod command to the changed files16:09
JimXLexactly16:09
Alphanumerikthe problem with sudo is it allows root access16:09
JimXLIt can be limited16:10
Alphanumeriksure but if you run sudo for a specific user, why not just use group permission with chmod16:10
JimXLAs I said, if joe starts the app, then it runs as user joe.  If tom starts it then it runs as user tom.  That might not be desirable.16:11

gulzargetting very unusual bug in Unity2D. I opened /media/Data and started copying files into /media/Multimedia. Now the Home icon shows two arrows- one for copy dialog and one for /media/multimedia. But when I minimize Multimedia and try to open it by clicking on icon then copy dialog opens as it is but Multimedia opens as firefox tittle with White area (i am working on firfox). how to solve it?16:20
rado_kirovcan't i make alsa re-detect everything16:20

julian__i'm having to service restart network-manager repeatedly16:21
JimXLrado_kirov: go back to the sound preferences16:21
JimXLTry a few of the other profiles.16:22
JimXLSee if one of them might bring you an input tab.16:22
julian__better still i just kill network-manager and use wpa_supplicant, iwconfig by hand. network-manager really is a bit broken in 11.0416:22
JimXLjulian__ I removed network-manglers and am much happer16:22
obeyance=( I hate how when i type something like "How to Burn ISO Ubuntu" or "How to burn an ISO in ubuntu" all get the same results. "How to burn Ubuntu ISO to disk in windows"16:22

JimXLI had to on my laptop, it just wouldn't run otherwise.16:23

[snake]my usb to sd card adapter that is made by samsung is non-functional. although the indicator light comes on solid. I am on ubuntu 10.04 x86_64. the disk utility knows that it's an adapter but the computer doesn't read the card itself. it's like a cd drive with no cd.16:42
ChrisBuchholzleave16:42
[snake]any suggestions16:42
terry[snake]: May not be partitioned or formatted16:42

terry[snake]: sudo fdisk -l  #See if it shows up there.16:44
[snake]terry, true. but there is a card in it. im saying it doesn't show up16:44
[snake]here is output from format attempt: Error creating partition table: helper exited with exit code 1: cannot open /dev/sdd: No such device or address16:44
terry[snake]: sudo fdisk -l |pastebinit  #And send resulting URL, (if you want  us to have a look at it).16:45
terry[snake]: Make sure the card is inserted properly.  Make sure it is pushed all the way in. etc. etc.16:46
pworkFor this mysql issue, I don't know where to get logs in fact, mysql -u root fails, but the /var/log/mysql/err.log posted before only mentions logs that occured when I installed packages16:46

[snake]indeed16:48
[snake]it's all plugged in... maybe I will try in the back.16:48

[snake]yeah.16:50
[snake]great i tried in the back... and it didn't even show up in the diskutil. and now the front wont work either >.>16:50
dassoukiPici: would mutt be better than alpine/pine ?16:50
[snake]nvm. it needed a second to load/16:51
terry[snake]: You might also try to unplug it, open a terminal and type "tail -f /var/log/messages"  and watch the output of the terminal window as you plug it in again.16:51
terry[snake]: Oh ok I see.16:51
terry[snake]: What does fdisk -l say about it now?16:51
[snake]yeah its showing up via the tail.16:51
Picidassouki: I find it better, but thats just me.  These are the instructions that I followed, if mutt isn't to your liking you can likely adapt them to fit alpine: http://crunchbanglinux.org/wiki/howto/howto_setup_mutt_with_gmail_imap16:51

ubottuUbuntu bug 811499 in xserver-xorg-video-intel (Ubuntu) "Malfunction on boot?" [Undecided,New]16:55
terry[snake]: Don't have much to go on here, don't see it listed in the output of fdisk -l  so can only assume that it has not been partitioned or formatted.  You probably just need to put a partition on it and format it.  The other option is that it is just broken.16:55
[snake]what if its a problem with the sd... hmm. sd or adapter?16:56
[snake]hang on16:56

BluesKajdassouki,,  try lynx it's a browser , alpinre is anemail client , don't think it will connect to gmail16:56
mehhahahow can I set boot priority in ubuntu boot loader?16:57
terry[snake]: If it shows as /dev/sdd  That would mean that it does not have any partitions on it.  In which case, the card may just need to be partitioned and formatted.16:57

quackv2hello, if someone has a second. not sure how to google this, but when i plug in an external monitor, my laptops default behavior is to turn off the laptop screen and just use the external, however it doesn't display properly/at all on the extneral16:58
KlyickI tried additional drivers, but none showed up in the place where you choose them16:58
quackv2anyway to disable the current automatic behavior?16:58
terry[snake]: If you partition and format it and you still can not mount it, then you can be pretty sure the card is bad.  (Actually, you will more-than-likely get errors trying to format or partition the card if it is defective.)16:59
terryquackv2: xrandr    #With no arguments, it will show what screensize resolutions are available.  You may need to pick one that is compatable to the monitor.17:00

dassoukiBluesKaj: thanks17:01
terryI can't see anything either  ^_^17:01
[snake]terry, the only sd card i can test is my wii... and i need some homebrew for that so brb17:02
quackv2yea, damn =/, its like some automatic behavior decided by the monitor preferences, but im not sure how to change it to stop shutting off the laptop monitor when i connect the external to it17:02
quackv2is there a file or something that the monitor preferences is messing with that i can muck with?17:04
gulzarIs there any similar software like "gwenview" for gnome(Unity)?17:04
