WolfDogDesignsHey guys. Trying to install Ubuntu alongside Win7 on a new PC. getting the old "(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system." error when trying to boot from cd. Tried 2 different ISO downloads on 2 diff CDs00:07
chipmonkDasei what channel for nautilus help?00:07
terryWolfDogDesigns: What CD burning software did you use?00:08
DasEichipmonk: can ask here00:08
WolfDogDesignserm, Windows Disk Image Burner. .. all I have access to00:08

chipmonkdo i have to resintall nautilus00:09
WolfDogDesignsterry, something else I should use?00:09
terryWolfDogDesigns:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto00:09
Jordan_UWolfDogDesigns: It sounds like the kernel has problems with your particular CDROM drive. Try installing via a flash drive.00:09
iLogicanyone knows if ubuntu has a pdf reader that supports highlighting?00:10
W43372I'm trying to recover a deleted folder of pictures and I'm having an issue with scalpel recovering it.00:10
WolfDogDesignsJordan_U, dont have one :/00:10
WolfDogDesignsterry, it suggests windows image burner should be fine, ill give it a go with the alternative though00:11
YankDownUnderWolfDogDesigns, Use a CD/DVD cleaner in the drive, try again. If anything, burn a new copy of the ISO at a slower speed to make sure it's done correctly.00:11
Jordan_UWolfDogDesigns: I doubt that using another burning program will make any difference.00:12
chipmonkgood suggestion yank always burn at slowest speed00:12
WolfDogDesignsim dling InfraRecorder which should let me set burn speed. Win Image Burner doesnt let you adjust anything00:13
YankDownUnderJordan_U, SLOWER SPEED...as well, every month you should clean your CD/DVD drive...dust IS the enemy...00:13
Jordan_UWolfDogDesigns: The minimal install CD should work. It needs to grab everything from the internet though.00:13
YankDownUnderWolfDogDesigns, XP CD Burner. Free, always works, small, and just always works. ;)00:13
Jordan_UWolfDogDesigns: Can you be connected to the internet via ethernet while installing?00:14
WolfDogDesignsyeah, its got ethernet connection00:14
Jordan_UWolfDogDesigns: Then the minimal install CD *will* work for you.00:15
W43372Trying to recover a deleted folder. What do?00:15
Jordan_U!minimal | WolfDogDesigns00:15
ubottuWolfDogDesigns: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD00:15
Jordan_U!undelete | W4337200:15
ubottuW43372: Some tools to recover lost data are listed and explained at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery - Recovering deleted files on !ext3 filesystems can be virtually impossible, although methods that might work is some cases are described at at http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html and http://projects.izzysoft.de/trac/ext3undel00:15

terryxiamx: cp -ar will work00:22

WolfDogDesignsRight. Im gonna try the new burn. Thanks a lot for the help guys00:26
stercorWhere does Ubuntu set the final PATH variable?  The one that the user uses.00:31
pooltablewhere to find chat about amd fx?00:31
Jordan_Upooltable: "redecuation"?00:31
pooltablejordan u nm i got it00:32
stercorpooltable: #hardware, perhaps?00:32
terrystercor: Are you wanting to add to your PATH?00:33
stercorterry: yes.00:33
pooltablethanks stercor00:34
stercorpooltable: That assumes that AMD is a chip and fx is a part of that chip.00:34
pooltableok what about fluxbox how to comfig it ?00:34
stercorterry: I don't want to do that every time I login/boot.  There must be some place where Ubuntu sets it.00:35
terrystercor: And to see what it now includes:  $PATH00:35
terrystercor: You don't have to do it every time  you boot.  Just do it once.00:36
stercorterry: I have to do it with each new window I open...00:36
DeviceZer0any anyone tell me what the default theme is for unity? I moved my old home folder over and now unity looks all weird and trying to use my old homes theme and settings00:36
terrystercor: What are you talking about?00:37
terrystercor: You need to tell us what it is exactly you are wanting to do.00:37
stercorterry: I need to have the system put an extra directory (actually, two) into the PATH variable on boot-up or login.00:38
pooltablestercor the next new FX 8 core00:38
* stercor know nothing of hardware, only software.00:38
terrystercor: And this is where you have executable files?00:39
stercorterry: Yes.00:39
stercorterry: rc.local?00:39
terrystercor: Why not just put them in /home/stercor/bin   (All of them.)00:39
stercorterry: The executables?00:40
terrystercor: Are you sure it is $PATH options you are after?00:40
stercorterry: Yes00:40
terrystercor: Well then yes, you set the $PATH for executables.  That is all it is for.00:41
terrystercor: So why don't you tell us what it is you really want to do.00:41
stercorterry: I want the system to provide the correct PATH to get to my executables by prepending/postpending the directories on to the PATH variable.  I don't want to do it manually every time I want to use an executable.  That is madness.  Surely Ubuntu has a place to set the PATH variable that the user (any user) uses.00:43
edbianstercor: Put your executables in the correct place00:44
terrystercor: As I just told you;  You do NOT have to do it every time you boot.  Ok?00:44
edbianor at least symlink them iectplace00:44
stercorOh, forget it.  I'll find it myself.  All of the solutions are "Band-Aids" that don't address the problem.00:44
iLogicthe fact that linux has no software capable of making highlights in pdfs makes me sad :(00:44
YankDownUnderstercor, /etc/profile00:44
stercorYankDownUnder: Now we're getting somewhere!00:45
YankDownUnderiLogic, Research before you complain?00:45
iLogicYankDownUnder: I did, actually..00:45
YankDownUnderstercor, Just make sure you make a backup of the /etc/profile before you hose the entire system.00:45
terryas edbian suggest, symlinks are good.  Just place your executables in ~/bin/  and symlink them to /usr/bin or where ever else you want, (that's already in your path).00:45
stercorYankDownUnder: Good advice!00:46
iLogicYankDownUnder: only acrobat reader, and if was previously enabled by acrobat pro which costs a billion bucks00:46
YankDownUnderiLogic, There are always alternatives.00:46
iLogicYankDownUnder: yep, very lame ones.. :(00:47
maumhow can I calibrate touch screen?00:47
maumon ubuntu 11.0400:47
terrystercor: They are not band-aids.  It is the way it's done.  You just don't understand the system.00:47
terrystercor: Have you looked at what you have in your path now?00:48
stercorterry: yes00:48
YankDownUnderiLogic, Ya know, there is something called "Crossover Office" by Codeweavers (www.codeweavers.com) that will allow you to run MS programs in a basically native environment (meaning on linux)00:48
terrystercor: Ok, well what do you need to add to it?00:48
terrystercor: And what do you have against using symlinks?00:49
stercorterry: And I know how to set PATH=blah:$PATH or PATH=$PATH:blah00:49
terrystercor: Then what is the problem?00:49
edbianstercor: Changing the path variable is not the correct solution.00:49
pooltablewhat is the commane to find out what video card i have?00:50
terrystercor: It is a very simple orderly system.  What else do you need?00:50
bazhangpooltable, lspci00:50
edbianpooltable: sudo lspci -k    (I like the -k to tell me what drivers are being used)00:51
iLogicYankDownUnder: yeah.. seems like I'm stuck with pdf x-change in wine, but it's very lame not having one single native app that is able to do such easy task00:51
iLogicYankDownUnder: if not easy, popular..00:51
YankDownUnderiLogic, Then bitch at Adobe for locking down their legalities in such a way as to keep their stuff extremely proprietary.00:51
pooltablebazhang thanks00:52
terrystercor: Just mkdir ~/bin  and put your new executables there.  From that point, you have the option of adding it to your $PATH or symlink to some dir that is already in your path. It is as simple as that.00:52
edbianpooltable: :(00:52

OogyPoogyHi all. Any recommendations on the best way to share an external Harddrive plugged into my Ubuntu box over a home network (other computers running Win7)?00:56
terryOogyPoogy: samba00:56
edbianOogyPoogy: samba is pretty much your only option.  It is hard to configure though00:57
OogyPoogySamba, eh?00:57
terryOogyPoogy: nfs is great, but is for Linux, (not MS Windows)00:57
OogyPoogyI installed Samba from the Software center, but it doesn't seem to have registered an icon in my menu system00:57
YankDownUnderUm...there ARE NFS clients for MS Windows...(not that they're good, but they do exist)00:57
terryOogyPoogy: You have to configure it.,00:57
OogyPoogyterry: if it changes anything, the external harddrive is formatted as fat3200:58
terry!samba | OogyPoogy00:58
ubottuOogyPoogy: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.00:58
edbianOogyPoogy: You probably installed the client not the server00:58
terryOogyPoogy: fat32 is fine, doens't matter.00:58
OogyPoogyebian: ahhhh00:58
edbianOogyPoogy: ahh indeed00:59
OogyPoogyOhh, its in the Admin menu00:59
terryOogyPoogy: sudo apt-get install samba00:59
edbianalso that00:59
edbiannobody needs help?!01:01
edbianHow about some wifi cards!01:01
OogyPoogyterry: I think I have both server and client installed. There is a GUI that pops up for "Server Configuration"01:01
terryedbian: I've got mine.01:01
OogyPoogyI guess its as "simple" as adding a Share01:01
edbianterry: :)01:01
edbianOogyPoogy: ha, yeah right.  Are you on the right workgroup?  Is the samba server running right now?  What user's can access the share you set?01:02
OogyPoogyedbian: haha :) Do I not define the workgroup when making the share? I've set up a user/pass for logging in. How can I check to see if the Samba server is running?01:03
edbianOogyPoogy: ps -e | grep samba    will tell if it's running.01:03
OogyPoogyedbian: thanks for that!01:03
edbianOogyPoogy: The workgroup (afaik) is in the config file in /etc/01:03
edbianOogyPoogy: I have never been clear about the users.  Do the windows user names get sent to the samba server or does the server just see 'samba' the local linux user trying to access stuff?  IDK01:04
OogyPoogyedbian: I typed that command and literally nothing happened. just popped up to the next prompt01:04
edbianOogyPoogy: That means it isn't running.01:04
edbianOogyPoogy: ps -e lists all running processes   | grep filters stuff  We filtered for the word 'samba'01:05
OogyPoogyedbian: ahh.... hehe. I guess /.samba?01:05
edbianOogyPoogy: Get it?01:05
OogyPoogyedbian: Oh I see. I do01:05
YankDownUnder"smbd" is what you want to look for.01:05
OogyPoogyYankDownUnder, as the process listed or is that the filename?01:05
edbianOogyPoogy: ~/.samba is the per user config     There is a system config file (for the server) in /etc somehwere01:05
edbianOogyPoogy: grepping for the right filter might help01:06
OogyPoogyoh, i see.01:06
edbianOogyPoogy: That's the process01:06
YankDownUnderOogyPoogy, To restart samba, /etc/init.d/smbd restart01:06
YankDownUnderWhen looking for it, try: ps - Ae | grep smbd01:06
OogyPoogyYankDownUnder, thanks! Very much appreciate the help here!01:06
OogyPoogyIs it possible to accidentally have duplicate processes running? I have smbd listed twice: http://pastebin.com/qtSA5zq701:09
YankDownUnderOogyPoogy, That's cool. Don't worry. Be happy.01:09
OogyPoogyYankDownUnder, Mr. McFerrin!01:09
edbianOogyPoogy: It likely doesn't matter.  Especially if you plan to reboot01:09
OogyPoogysince you guys are especially helpful, I'll take the opportunity to ask: is there an equivalent Linux/Ubuntu program that tweaks startup settings and cleans unused files like CCleaner for WIndows?01:10
OogyPoogyOr is that not even a necessity by virtue of the Linux architecture?01:11
YankDownUnderIt's not a worry in linux => unless you specifically don't want certain services or programs from starting...otherwise, it's not necessary.01:11
edbianOogyPoogy: They're unnecessary.01:11
iLogicmy netbook has no page up or down keys, anyone knows if there is a way to use function + up and down or something instead?01:11
OogyPoogyAs an off-topic, has anyone seen that crazy 16-year old girl who married that 53 your-old actor? She looks like she's on *major* drugs during her interview01:11
OogyPoogyiLogic, perhaps it can be mapped?01:12
YankDownUnderiLogic, I'd look through the keymappings and keyboard layouts => as well, dig through the Ubuntu forums as I'm quite certain someone with your same machine has ran across the same issue.01:12
iLogicno success so far..01:12
th0riLogic: you can use xev to determine keycodes and xmodmap to fix the issue. Google xmodmap for more details01:12
YankDownUnderiLogic, ...patience is a virtue.01:13
JayBHow do I install the cure font from artwiz to be systemwide? ubuntu 11.0401:13
Carpe|Diemcan somebody tell me whats the latest stable kernel in Ubuntu?01:13
ubottuThe core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)01:13
OogyPoogyWhen Ubuntu gets upgraded and Gnome 2 is removed, do you think there will be a way to reinstall it? I really can't get used to Unity for some reason...01:14
edbianOogyPoogy: I'm not sure you'll be able to get gnome2 in the future.  gnome3 definitely.  What you might want to look at is xfce01:14
th0rOogyPoogy: you might want to consider debian at that point01:14
Carpe|DiemSnooffy: i don't see a version on there?01:14
Snooffyyeah sorry:D01:15
* edbian uses Debian01:15
ubottuCommon Sense: Just because you can, does not mean you should. Think before you do. "Works for me" does not mean it is ok. The latest version of everything is not always useful if you aim for stability.01:15
OogyPoogyth0r, is Debian as user-friendly as Ubuntu?01:15
edbianThat's what he says for stable?01:15
edbianOogyPoogy: no01:15
OogyPoogyedbian: is there a way to emulate the menu dropdown on Gnome 3?01:16
Snooffyit must be there under something..01:16
edbianOogyPoogy: I don't know what feature you're talking about.01:16
Carpe|Diemsomebody give me the output of uname -a on an updates ubuntu system01:16
edbianSnooffy: hahaha01:16
OogyPoogyedbian: so, I'm effectively being booted of Ubuntu if I don't like Unity? Wow.01:16
YankDownUnderOogyPoogy, Gnome3. Egads. There *is* a tweak tool that can make Gnome3 nearly like Gnome2...01:16
edbianOogyPoogy: what? no!  You can use gnome3, kde, xfce, or like a dozen others01:16
OogyPoogyedbian: the application dropdown list01:16
OogyPoogyYankDownUnder, how come everyone hates the traditional menu so much? :)01:17

Carpe|Diemszal: i just want to know the newest ubutnu kernel number01:18
YankDownUnderOogyPoogy, They don't hate it, they "decided via corporate thought" that it was no longer important - that goes for the Unity team and the Gnome3 team. They're trying to emulate the "smartphone" and "netbook" mentality.01:18

OogyPoogyedbian: what you posted looks like an iPhone Os too!01:19
OogyPoogyYankDownUnder, but I don't get it. What if you don't use a touchscreen device?01:19
edbianOogyPoogy: I posted gnome301:20
OogyPoogyedbian: so even Gnome is losing the listed menus? Oh no...01:20
edbianOogyPoogy: gnome3 is very new01:20
edbianOogyPoogy: again, look at xfce01:20
YankDownUnderOogyPoogy, Well, the apparent corporate paradigm is more important than what YOU think. Apparently.01:21
OogyPoogyGod, why can't they at least keep it like they do in Ubuntu - I use Ubuntu "classic" interface.01:21
OogyPoogyI've tried XFCE, but for some reason, the rendering isn't smooth like the stock Ubuntu setup.01:21
sw0rdfishhey guys how can I take a screenshot in firefox of a very long page in one time01:21

rwwMuch as I dislike the various GNOME user interfaces, can we bring the channel back to Ubuntu technical support please?01:22
YankDownUndersw0rdfish, Why don't you just "Print to file" => choose PDF as the output? Works great, ya know...01:22
OogyPoogyrww: Sorry01:22
apollosixKDE is worth another look. But in unity hide the side bar and run a dock. I know it's a bit mac but the cairo dock kills unity dock.01:22
edbiansw0rdfish: I get what you're asking.  Tough question.01:22
sw0rdfishYankDownUnder, print to file? you say... lol let me try and find that :)01:22
edbiansw0rdfish: Try saving the page and converting it somehow.  That's my best guess01:22
infobitya its a good one as YankDownUnder said save it as Pdf serch on google for help01:22

OogyPoogyedbian: oh, I thought an anagram was a new word resulting from rearrangement, not symmetry. See, I am dumb01:30
OogyPoogyth0r: That actually looks quite nice01:30
runicfoxOogyPoogy, a palindrome is symmetry.  an anagram is rearrangement.01:30

edbianYankDownUnder: you monitor must be 10 feet wide01:46
cyperbgso then which one I put it in?01:46
YankDownUndercyperbg, Just add what you wish in the /etc/rc.local and that's easy enough.01:46
edbiancyperbg: either one01:46
YankDownUnderedbian, Two monitors, 24" each.01:46
cyperbgYankDownUnder I tried, it ain't working01:46
edbiancyperbg: /etc/rc.local is probably easier.  What line are you putting in there?01:46
edbianYankDownUnder: nice01:46
cyperbgedbian one moment I'll tell you01:46
edbiancyperbg: k01:47
cyperbgedbian I put /home/cyper/Autominer/startmining.sh before exit 001:47

pieces029Hey I am trying to install a python module to my home directory because I don't have sudo on the system I'm on.  When I do python setup.py install I get an error that the directory doesn't support .pth files.  Can anyone help me with this problem or suggest another way around this?  Thanks01:58
cyperbgI'm stuck01:58
YankDownUndercyperbg, Right - now we're getting somewhere!!! Right - SO, since it's YOUR script in YOUR home dir, what you'd want to do is add it to the "Startup Applications" mate...easy AS! ;)01:58
edbianYankDownUnder: he wants it to run when the system turn on.01:58
cyperbgYankDownUnder I did that but the script has var/log/Autominer.log and it gets access denied01:59
edbianYankDownUnder: And it should it it's in /etc/init.d/rc.local01:59
cyperbgit works - but can't write to the log01:59
cyperbgand it is important to have access to the log01:59
rewatihi there i have broadcom wireless card and installed broadcom sta kernel source from synaptic and restarted my computer still no wireless01:59
edbianpieces029: put the python module source code in the same dir as the program you're writing01:59
cyperbgedbian adding it to Startup appication works - it just can't write to the log01:59
edbiancyperbg: Yeah.  It SHOULD work being called from /etc/init.d/local01:59
pieces029edbian: Ok I'll give that a try02:00
cyperbgedbian you mean /etc/init.d/rc.local?02:00
blackhawklm-sensors applets won't work in unity right?02:01
blackhawkanything else?02:01
edbiancyperbg: put the script in /etc/init.d/ and then run sudo update-rc.d on it02:01
cyperbgok I'll try02:01
cyperbgedbian you mean moving the file?02:02
edbiancyperbg: or copy it02:02
cyperbgedbian I'm going to try something else first: move the log file to the same dir as the script02:03
edbiancyperbg: I'm not SURE it needs to be in /etc/init.d/   but put it there to be safe02:03
cyperbgand then I can add it to Startup and it will work02:03
edbiancyperbg: Just change the permissions of the log file.02:03
edbiancyperbg: But it will only run when you log in then.02:03
edbiancyperbg: where's the other way it starts when the computer starts02:03
cyperbgedbian I login automatically02:03
cyperbgthat is not a problem02:03
edbiancyperbg: Well there ya go then!02:03
cyperbghow do I change the permission to write from user?02:04
\bMike\bcyperbg: chmod02:04
edbiancyperbg: sudo chown you:you /path/to/log/file  would work too02:04
cyperbg\bMike\b I know it's chmod, but I don't know what to write after it02:05
pieces029edbian: so there is c++ files in there as well should I compile those first?02:05
C_Smithokay, my sound system is refusing to respond, I go to change my volume, and I can't, I click on sound preferences, it pops up a windows saying "Waiting for sound system to respond", and it doesn't stop.02:05

edbianpieces029: Is the module not pure python?02:05
C_Smithanything I can try>02:05
C_Smithmind you, I just updated my kernel to 3.002:05
pieces029edbian: no, its pyopencl, so it's a wrapper to open cl02:06
edbianpieces029: Then you'll have to compile the C++ code.  If it's part of the module.02:06
edbiangotta go!02:06
cyperbgedbian I put it in /etc/init.d02:09
cyperbgbut how do I run sudo update-rc.d02:09

SianaGearzDasEi: thx03:43
johnnyonflameWell, it's basically a virtual machine03:43
lsheebai can send u the launcher and u can change the paremeters to be in the linux language with the same procedure because the engine runs both in windows and linux , quake files are like that when u have quake installed in windows u just copy the quake files and add a launcher and walla but i cant find a person who has this knowledge of this case03:43
testytestyRigin: well for starters, you don't want to use a tar.bz203:43
johnnyonflamein a box full of other servers03:43

johnnyonflameso, what didn't you get?03:44
testytestylsheeba: what does the launcher do?03:44
testytestyjohnnyonflame: how it's dedicated03:44
Riginyes i need03:45
johnnyonflameIt's just sold like that, it's not really dedicated03:45
SianaGearzDasEi: well dmesg apparently only remembers the current session, not the one which doesn't boot. i'll go check the rest.03:45
Riginbut i don't know to process with tar.bz203:45
lsheebathe launcher starts the engine thats all , the engine compatibility can run in linux also if the launcher is available03:45
johnnyonflamethe only dedicated thing about it is that it runs what i want and only what I want on it03:45
testytestyRigin: you don't need the tar.bz2, there are binaries03:45
DasEiSianaGearz: dmes will also report a broken start, and where it hangs, dmesg > dmesg.txt of better scrolling03:46

A-KO^Howdy. with 11.04 I'm having trouble getting the Nvidia drivers to work. It says the driver is activated but not in use. The driver is set to "nvidia" in xorg.conf, but but glx gears aren't working properly. 7600GT, bit older. And xrandr doesn't work properly but don't have the error off hand at the moment. Any help?04:42

lsheebawols_, QuakeX files is exactly like Quake3 files , if u have it installed on ur windows , u can copy paste it in ur Linux and put in the launcher made for Linux and it will run the game becasue the pak files can read both ways in linux/windows , the thing i really need is the same thing , a launcher but editing the parameter destination to QuakeX/baseq3 instead of Quake3/baseq304:43
A-KO^wols_: according to Xorg.0.log, the module is loaded and not throwing an error.04:44

jack^_iDRINKbLEACH, ^05:16
nit-witiDRINKbLEACH, okay, but that script will seperate the wheat from the chaffe, use a thumb  to transfer from that computer be creative.05:16
ActionParsnipYankDownUnder: your call dude. I use openbox. Does it with doubleclick :)05:17
ActionParsnipYankDownUnder: could suggest the functionality on http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com05:18
iDRINKbLEACHwols_ jack^_ nit-wit In the "allocate drive space" screen I should selecte "/dev/sda/ ATA ST3160812AS (160 GB)" thatis my original "C;\)05:18
YankDownUnderActionParsnip, There is a way to do the exact same thing by using gconf-editor to change the gwd settings...05:18
jack^_iDRINKbLEACH, ok. if you selected sda as yoru boot drive, it will boot from that drive o_O05:19
iDRINKbLEACHwols_ jack^_ nit-wit In the "allocate drive space" screen I should selecte "/dev/sda/ ATA ST3160812AS (160 GB)" thatis my original "C;\) Under the "Device for boot loader installation"05:19
iDRINKbLEACHjack^_ it will boot from sda but all the "stuff" can be on sdb?05:20
wols_iDRINKbLEACH: are you installing ubuntu on a usb drive on a netbook?05:20
jack^_iDRINKbLEACH, sure05:20
wols_jack^_: if /boot is on /dev/sdb and is a removable usb device, he will get problems, no "sure" there...05:21
jack^_wols_, what?05:21
iDRINKbLEACHwols_ I am installing on a desktop from cd rom05:21
wols_iDRINKbLEACH: sda and sdb are internal drives?05:22
iDRINKbLEACHjack^_ I tried doing that and it prompter "no root file system is defined" "Please correct this from the partitioning menu"05:23
jack^_the only problem i see with boot being on a flash drive is that if you remove it you'll lose boot05:23
wols_jack^_: you lose your bootloader too. which is kinda bad...05:23
iDRINKbLEACHwols_ yes, sda 160gb, and sda internal 1tb05:23
jack^_wols_, indeed05:23
_leifDoes anybody know how to distinguish an Ubuntu Server installation from a Desktop one (from the command line). I guess they differ in their package source lists...05:24
wols_!fixgrub > iDRINKbLEACH05:24
ubottuiDRINKbLEACH, please see my private message05:24
llutz__leif: they don't, just different default packages05:24
wols__leif: they don't. only difference is what packages you install. in short, not possible to distinguish (one can easily install ubuntu server and then later install X and gnome on it)05:25
iDRINKbLEACHwols_ sdb is divided under several partitions. /dev/sdb, /dev/sdb1 (ext) 50000mb, /dev/sdb2 swap 3999mb, /dev/sdb7 ext4 99998, and /dev/sdb8 ext4 20251505:26
xiaohdtutany body here?05:26
iDRINKbLEACHubutto thanks05:27
_leifllutz_: Thanks. The difference is 3-year vs. 5-year support though, so I wonder how the package manager recognizes that.05:27

sondubuntu 10.04.3 server here... will grub "work" with LVM on top of Raid1 or do i need a non-LVM boot partition ?05:44
nit-witiDRINKbLEACH, generally ubuntu will boot from the drive it is installed from, but it has to be able to be first in line in the bios or a key promprt to bring uop the boot menu. A sslave wont go first. You could trandfer the ubuntu to the sda and put the grub in its mbr.  Do you have a windows setuo on sda if so hyou could use easybcd probably, which will run on visya and W7 not XP.05:44

jcreekdreamubuntu, re-boot your system. The first screen is your i.d screen. Click on it. The second screen is to enter your password. At the bottom of the screen you will see , Ubuntu. click on Ubuntu and a menu will pop up. Click on Ubuntu Classic. This will set your desktop to Gnome, untill you change it.05:46
nit-witDreamubuntu, when you boot in there is a classic desktop option in the bottom bar after you choose the user05:46
csdserverDreamubuntu, don't reboot, just log out05:46
ActionParsnipLogging onto freenode is quick today. Like it :)05:47
Dreamubuntubut can i remove unity ?05:47
Dreamubuntufrom ubuntu05:47
iDRINKbLEACHnit-wit I am running winxp, In the "allocate drive space" window I assigned and allocated all the partitions on sdb. On the bottom of that window it has a drop down window for "Device for boot loader installation" should I leave that on "/dev/sda/ ATA st3160812As (160GB) (the master)?05:47
csdserverwhy would you want to?  it takes up like 500k of data05:47
ActionParsnipDreamubuntu: unity 2d is going to replace classic in oneiric, just so you know05:48
jcreekDreamubuntu, that will do away with Unity.05:48
nit-witiDRINKbLEACH, now we are getting into an area I wont touch without the bootscript.05:48

ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)05:49

iDRINKbLEACHnit-wit it hit the "install" button. worst case scenario, I re-format the drive in winxp and start over, wish me luck.05:49
DasEiDreamubuntu: lucid hangs ? ever checked the logs for reason or used a newer kernel ?05:50

yagooiDRINKbLEACH, if u cant do both now.. just do the master boot drive then..05:52
yagooiDRINKbLEACH, is linux spread across the two drives?05:52
ActionParsnipDreamubuntu: exactly, or use software centre05:52
Dreamubuntuccsm ?05:52
iDRINKbLEACHI just selected a username and password and it is "saving installed packages...."05:52

iDRINKbLEACHyagoo I just selected a username and password and it is "saving installed packages...."05:53
Dreamubuntusorry guys for stupid question05:53
ActionParsnipDreamubuntu: press Alt+F2 and run it.05:53
yagooiDRINKbLEACH, linux is very flexible.. you can spread linux partitions any way you want.. but since you're new.. it would be easier to stick with one drive05:53
ActionParsnipDreamubuntu: its a new OS to you so its understandable05:54
Dreamubuntuyes it's like a new os05:55
iDRINKbLEACHyagoo thanks, but is is okay for loader to be on SDA and everything else to be on SDB?? also is loader = GRUB2??05:55
yagooiDRINKbLEACH, linux is very flexible..05:55
mcurranunity is garbage05:55
yagooiDRINKbLEACH, you just need to place grub first stage into /dev/sd<Master>05:55
mcurranugliest default desktop i've seen yet05:56
thewarren1I m totally new05:56
yagooiDRINKbLEACH, which is the first drive bios boots into ?(/dev/sda ?)05:56
Dreamubuntuccsm now work05:56
ActionParsnipiDRINKbLEACH: grub2 is the default bootloader. You can use anything else if you can install it (flexibility again)05:56
yagooiDRINKbLEACH, then it would be /dev/sda since its the first drive to boot from bios05:56
mcurranalways install grub to native linux installed partition and change active partition as necessary, always best05:56

yagoomcurran, show me the document link.05:57
iDRINKbLEACHyagoo Houston we may have a problem, Ubuntu is spinning but nothing is happening, 3-4 minutes and no files are installing. ans yes bios is looking for cd first than sda05:57
yagoomcurran, so you're wrong.05:57
Dreamubuntuok then05:57
mcurranyour telling me if you set your windows partition active and grub is installed on a second partition that grub will still boot?  your nuts05:57
mcurranbooting an active partition has nothing to do with linux it's your bios kid05:58
nit-witmcurran, thats haow mine is set up yagoo is correct.05:58
yagooiDRINKbLEACH, well if cd is booted into you should um choose shutdown or try using bios 'esc' key to bring up menu at the very least05:58
ActionParsnipMcurran: it doesn't, grub loads from mbr then boots the partitions from there05:58
mcurrannot if you don't overwrite your mbr05:58
yagoo"<yagoo> mcurran, linux doesn't use the "active" partition flag"05:58
yagooread that again young one.05:58
* yagoo ignores the troll05:59
mcurrangrub is a bootloader, mbr is a bootloader, a bootsector is irrelevant and your bios selects the active partition05:59

tripelbhelp again. this says to add "ubuntu-server-tip " to the last line in my .bashrc but I dont think that's right (any more?)06:48
jcreekAmivit, Have you installed Vidalia?06:48
* yagoo says if u have gnome apps as a preference but need to run KDE apps it's not problem-- except the kdelibraries would be installed-- hence you can run KDE apps on the gnome desktop06:50
Amivitjcreek, yes, but i dont want to configure specific apps to use the socks proxy, i want to globally route everything through Tor if thats somehow possible?06:50
AmivitTo avoid any lleakage06:50
yagooAmivit, you want to tunnely a torrent app?06:50
yagooAmivit, those apps should have a socks proxy setting..06:51
Amivityagoo, No, I just want the piece of mind of wether i will use skype, messenger, my browser or whatever software it should be, that it is through the TOR06:51
tripelbI did this -->  sudo apt-get install fortunes-ubuntu-server  <-- what did that do?06:51
AmivitLike a transparent gateway i would ugess its called06:51
ubottuTor is a program to route connections through several servers for anonymity. It is in Ubuntu's repositories, but the Tor Project recommends using their Tor packages due to past issues with Ubuntu's. For setup info, see option (2) of https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en | To use Tor on freenode, see !tor-sasl06:52
yagoo(use /msg ubottu if u need more query)06:52
tripelbIs that good info if you want to become a Tor bridge?06:52
yagoono idea..06:52
yagooi've heard of tor before but never dwelved into it06:52
yagoonever used it..06:53
tripelbyagoo, ZykoticK9 idleone thanks for the basic help.06:53
AmivitI dont see how that bot can help me since my request is a bit specific06:53
ZykoticK9tripelb, "fortune" is a cli app that displays little messages (ususally when you log in), in this case, about ubuntu-server06:53
gere@IdleOne thank you06:54
yagooAmivit, if u read it.. "Tor Project recommends using their Tor packages due to past issues with Ubuntu's"06:54
tripelbZykoticK9, ok how can I remove what I just did then?06:54
ZykoticK9tripelb, "sudo apt-get remove fortunes-ubuntu-server" will uninstall it?06:55
Amivityagoo, but i dont have issues with what to install. I just want to know if it's possible to route 100% everything through tor transparantly to the apps running in the system.06:55
jcreekAmivit, I installed Vidalia last week, but haven't set it up yet. However, I ran it in Windows XP and all of my communications then went through it. It was slow, but secure. I am going to Tor and get their advice.06:56
yagooAmivit, if install successfully, you should meet up with others who use TOR, you should be asking the other dude :p.. Tor is not a main thing i reckon06:56
tripelbZykoticK9, seemed to work, thanks. (first uninstall)06:56
tripelbAmvit, I'm no expert but I think that's what tor does.06:57
yagooI wouldn't trust tor for doing my online banking06:57
tripelbamvit, I just tried something and I think it's your preferred destination!! /join #tor06:57
Amivitjcreek, but after installing didnt u still have to coinfigure your browser etc., to use the proxy? Thats what I want to avoid. I want to somehow route everything through the proxy whether it be with iptables, or setting up a seperate computer and using that as the default gateway on ubuntu or something like that.06:58
Amivitthanks tripelb06:58
yagooAmivit, i already answered that. You need to setup your apps. Those apps need to have that 'proxy' option..06:58
yagooAmivit, this is the basic nature of a proxy server. The client's proxy settings need to be setup.06:59
yagoowith-tor or not-tor.. proxy is proxy06:59
yagoo(and if there's no proxy option with the app.. it's still possible to proxy the client but difficult to do so with other external helper tools)07:00
AmivitI think I understand now, thanks.07:01
namelessinseatlewhat is an alternative to flashget for linux?07:01

not-really-humani'm gonna be running Ubuntu in a VM (downloading now).  is Ubuntu much slower in VMWare07:03
jcreekAmivit , Yes, but it gave me a problem. Here is the thing for me. I have Firefox 5. When I ran it in Firefox before it was compatible. It is not in Firefox 5. Previously I jus went to mozilla add-ons and downloaded  Privoxy, Tor Button, and Vidalia . I had to change the proxy settings but I could get these at Privoxy site. Now I have to figure out if I  should  use Firefox or Chromium.07:03

Yukinorohinsmod: what should I check for in pavucontrol ?07:47

Compiglebihan, I am unable to get this part sorted under Post install stuff... I quote: "There are no audio level controls in SvxLink server nor Qtel. The levels must be adjusted with an external tool like aumix, kmix, alsamixer or whatever your favourite mixer is. I usually use the command line alsamixer application. Start one of the mixers and locate the controls to use for adjusting the levels. The output level is adjusted using the two sliders Pcm and Vol08:05
Compi. The input level is adjusted using the Capture (sometimes called IGain) slider, not the Mic or Input (line-in) slider. The latter two are used to adjust the monitoring level of the two inputs. Set these two to zero. Select to use either the microphone or the line-in input. Set the Pcm, Vol and Mic/Input sliders half way up. Adjust the levels according to the instructions below. "08:05

llutz_jnsl_: don't use ssh(fs) as root08:18
jnsl_llutz_ but i want to mount the drive in /meida/<name>08:19
Compiglebihan, Thanks, is this right? http://paste.ubuntu.com/650484/08:19
glebihanCompi, yes should be ok08:19
Compiglebihan, Thanks heaps!08:19
glebihanCompi, you're welcome08:19
llutz_jnsl_: just make sure to be in group fuse08:19
Compiglebihan, I am going to try Qtel and give feedback.. One minute..08:19
insmodjnsl_: why not just sudo mount08:21
llutz_jnsl_: sudo chown <you> /media/<name>08:21
jnsl_llutz_ can i add root to fuse? i tried usermod -a -G fuse root08:21
llutz_insmod: because it's sshfs08:21
insmodllutz, insteed of that08:22
jnsl_<llutz i did chown on the folder, same error ;( im not sure if its a permission thing?08:23
llutz_jnsl_: "sshfs user@host:/path /media/<name>" as user08:24
Compiglebihan, The mic is still not working. no incoming audio.08:24
soulis77-SEllutz: Do I need the dns for localhost?  My VPS provider have dns server for me but.. ?08:25
jnsl_llutz_ thanks i was missing user@08:25
llutz_soulis77-SE: you need a dns, but it doesn't have to run on your local machine08:26
soulis77-SEyes but the dns for the localhost is that special? Or what is dig @localhost   used for?  Newbe...08:27
glebihanCompi, could you try with some other app (like gnome-sound-recorder) ? this way we'll see if the issue comes from Qtel or something else08:27
Romancesoulis77-SE: you can make your own DNS server on your VPS or use free dns services (eg: www.freedns.afraid.org)08:27
Compiglebihan, Ok.. I will try that..08:27
Greysterjus having a look around?08:27
soulis77-SERomance: I have DNS from afraid.org  but the localhost is that dns for MY server ?08:28
soulis77-SEsorry from* my server that is08:28
llutz_soulis77-SE: "dig @localhost"  is senseless if you don't run your own dns locally. "@host" just specifies what dns-server to query08:28
Romancesoulis77-SE: apparantly you can't even remote to your VPS localhost, you still need the IP instead. so. yeah.08:29

ritzzanother question why when i mount a folder with cryptkeeper other users/accounts on the pc have access to this folder on the desktop (im admin user?09:46
th0rritzz: you have a problem with the mount point for cryptkeeper. From previous messages my guess is you are mounting it to the same place as the dvd09:46
wildbatNight-hacks: how many RAM you have?09:46
ritzzhow can that happen if the dvd is the cd rom?09:46

Night-hacksyugiohfan2011:  do you know python ?09:49
wh1zz0 immediately, I test my drive by nserting Spartacus movie and it automounts on my ubuntu (natty). So why can't I get this working , am I  missing something? How can I get this VirtualBox to boot this XP cd? Please help09:49
ActionParsnipwh1zz0: did you set the CD to be used in the virtualbox config?09:49

wh1zz0I think I'm missing something..09:50
ActionParsnipwh1zz0: its part of the config of the virtual system09:51
wh1zz0Is there a way to specify it now even after I finished the wizard?09:51
ActionParsnipwh1zz0: yes, click the vbox then click the settings button09:51

=== Brian is now known as bizy
anurag_so i read that brcm80211 is installed in the natty kernel and i did not need to install drivers for wifi not make it work and sure enuf i din the wifi worked right after i setup natty for dual boot alongside win 7 on my dell m101z but the wifi conked off after a couple of reboots i mean it doesnt detect any networks , a day ago i was not aware of brcm being included in the kernel and i accepted and installed any and all the wifi driver packages that came10:05
anurag_ my way, due to the same prob i then reinstalled the 11.04, since the after the failure for the second time i tried looking for the cause and this is what i've been able to get to after i 'dmesg' there is a line in the code which says 'brmc80211 in staging directory and you have been warned' i get the concept of staging directory and all but what the heck am i supposed to do sure dont wanna go back to lowly windows10:05
anurag_those are all my probs for 3 days i've been at it and have not been able to figure out10:07
tomodachianurag_: that was way to much text for any sane person to read. Keep it short!10:07
tomodachianurag_: so its a testing driver. Not much to do really10:07
anurag_dude thats 3 days work for me10:07
anurag_yea but it works right after install of natty10:08
tomodachitohtori_: get a usb wifi card untill its considered as "stable"?!10:08
anurag_which means ther must be sthing inth updates which puts it in the staging dir as to what i dunno10:08
tomodachipossibly you can find some bleeding edge source of the driver on broadcoms page and compile that one for your kernel instead10:08
anurag_tried nothin ther10:09
tomodachiif you do a reinstall.  track what packages change maybe?10:09
tomodachiand just exclude installing the one that you think messes things up10:09
tomodachiprobably kernel updates10:09

OortieszykoticK9 both don,t help on your suggestion say invalid user10:19
anurag_i din edit dhcpd but i installed all those packages earlier and blacklisted brcm80211 and cfg80211 and mac8021110:19
ZykoticK9Oorties, you need to replace USERNAME with your actual username!10:19

cybervolfei cant connect my internet with wifi adhoc, how to resolv it ?10:28
wols_Oorties: no10:28
rigvedwols_: by enabling it from the software sources? but that will tend to break a lot of right?10:28

cybervolfei cant share it?10:28
ActionParsnipom26er: can you give the output of:10:28
rghose@Oorties: you need to login as root that has permissions on /home10:28
wols_rigved: no. by compiling it yourself by backporting it from a newer version of ubuntu10:28
ActionParsnipom26er: lsb_release -d10:28
ActionParsniprghose: root login is default disabled10:29
ZykoticK9xiaq, careful! that will change permissions on /root instead!!! Oorties10:29
rigvedwols_: ohh...ok. thanks! i'll try that10:29
om26erActionParsnip, Ubuntu 11.0410:29
xiaqZykoticK9: I think (s)he could log in with his own account in the command line10:29
om26erActionParsnip, is there a kernel module that I could reload so that the system thinks I rebooted?10:29
ZykoticK9xiaq, sudo translates to the root user!10:30
rghose@Oorties: Reinstall should be too drastic a thing to do...10:30
TBotNiktomodachi: No router on this network.  If I had that why would I bother setting up dhcp as server?10:30
xiaqZykoticK9: No, expansion of ~ happens in the shell. Try this yourself.10:30
wols_rigved: do you know how to backport a package?10:30
ActionParsnipom26er: can you give the output of:  sudo apt-get -y install pastebinit; clear; lsmod | pastebinit10:30
xiaqZykoticK9: Do this `sudo echo ~`10:30
ActionParsnipom26er: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport/Machines/Netbooks#Asus_Eee_PC_1215P   says it works fine10:30
wols_TBotNik: so you have your own internet? all by yourself?10:30
rghose@Oorties: do a mkdir /home/<username>, where <username> would be the username you use to login...10:31
Oortiesxiaq it says no such file or directory10:31
tomodachiTBotNik: because most "routers" there ary many reasons. But if you dont then its fine :)10:31
rghosecopy stuff from /etc/skel into that folder10:31
rghoseand then chown <username> /home/<username> as root10:31
ZykoticK9xiaq, sorry you're correct.  I just used "sudo ls ~" and it showed my user's ~ not root's10:31
xiaqOorties: As rghose says your home directory may be accidentally removed...10:32
om26erActionParsnip, yes it does say that but I have the problem, its ubuntu certified and still :/ http://paste.ubuntu.com/650528/10:32
rigvedwols_: correct me if i am wrong. i'll download the source code for newer version from packages.ubuntu.com and compile it (configure, make and make install)10:32
xiaqOorties: What's output of `ls /home` ?10:32
xiaqOorties: Or if you can't do that `sudo ls /home`10:32
ActionParsnipom26er: what stuff says isn't useful. If its broken then it's broken :(10:32
wols_rigved: you download it with apt-get source, yes but then you create a .deb package from it with dpkg-buildpackage and install it via dpkg -i package.deb10:32
ActionParsnipom26er: sudo modprobe -r psmouse; sleep 2; sudo modprobe psmouse10:33
wols_rigved: and you need to understand what to put in sources.list too10:33

wols_c0mrade_: apt-get install <new kernel package name>10:33
rigvedwols_: ok. can you tell me what to put in sources.list?10:33
TBotNiktomodachi, wols_: Inet comes in from wlan0, but haved to get dhcp server running first then will try bridging.  If I can get the network running the other 3 servers will write in shared folders that the network, on the wlan0 side already sees and so data will go thru.  Yeah messy but will do until I fix with full bridging.10:33
ActionParsnipom26er: did you go into mouse settings andenable two finger scrolling10:33
xiaqSidewinder1: I joined later than that ;) thanks10:33
wols_rigved: a deb-src line for a ubuntu repo with the version of ffmpeg you want to use10:34

om26erActionParsnip, if modprobe thing does that is it then an issue in the driver or the hardware?10:34

Oortiesxiaq comand not found on sudo l/s saya no such file or directory10:35
rigvedwols_: i understood about giving it a specific ubuntu repo part. how do i tell it to use only the ffmpeg source package from there?10:36
c0mrade_Because I want to update the aircrack-ng tool.10:36
wols_rigved: you don't. you just only download the ffmpeg source and nothing else10:36
ActionParsnipom26er: you may need a boot option on the module10:36
xiaqOorties: Create another user in the command line, or you may just do a fresh install like Sidewinder1 said...10:37
xiaqOorties: s/install/reinstall/10:37
rigvedwols_: ok. and this will not affect my other *-dev packages?10:37
om26erActionParsnip, what does that mean ? :)10:37
ActionParsnipom26er: try adding: options psmouse proto=exps   to /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf   then rerun the modprobe based command I gave earlier. May help10:37
wols_rigved: I talk about SOURCE. source doesn't come in package form10:37
ActionParsnipom26er: you can load modules with extra options, makes them behave differently10:37
rigvedwols_: ok. thanks for your help! i'll try this in a few minutes10:38
rghose@Oorties: run whoami and report what user you have logged in as10:38

Sidewinder1Olotila, Use Gparted to expand your partition.10:40
Sidewinder1Olotila, System--> Administration--> GParted.10:41
ActionParsnipom26er: you could try simply adding to /etc/rc.local   to unload then load the driver just before login, may help10:41
rghoseOlotila: remove unused stuff from /var/log/10:41
rghoseOlotila: try removing the old kernel logs (sudo rm /var/log/kern.log*)10:41
ActionParsnipom26er: then you wouldn't need the psmouse.conf file, but try with. It's all worth a try10:41
rghoseOlotila: and (sudo rm /var/log/syslog*)10:41
OlotilaI'll try gparted, there is only 11,4 MB to begin with10:42
ActionParsnipom26er: basically you will be fighting that module until it plays nice, also make sure you enable the multitouch thing I mentioned earlier in mouse options10:42
om26erActionParsnip, so I should try to add options psmouse proto=exps to /etc/rc.local ?10:42

th0rJoshun: you need to install the ssh server first10:44
Joshunbut the internet ip is the routers ip10:44
dr_willisuse a dynamicdns serbice if the ip chsnges10:44
Joshunand the computers unique ip is only for the local network10:44
Sidewinder1Olotila, Make sure that you back-up first. :-)10:44
Joshunhow would you go about connecting to it then?10:44
dr_willisJoshun:  port firawding setting on the router10:44
Joshunyou cannot just ssh into your internet ip address because that is the router's ip10:45
om26erActionParsnip, adding psmouse.conf makes cursor less sensitive it seems is that normal?10:45
dr_willisJoshun:  yes you can... via port forwarding10:45
om26er*adding to10:45

Joshuni'll set up port forwarding and see if that works then10:45
Sidewinder1soulis77-SE, Yes10:46
TBotNiktomodachi: So what am I mssing, still can not make this work10:46
dr_willisi port forward port 7777 for rxample to box 1. port 22.10:46
dr_willisport 7778 is to box 210:46
wols_soulis77-SE: this is the forum if you have this issue under Ubuntu10:46
Joshunit doesn't work (ssh
soulis77-SEOk, I have a VPS server and the hostname is set to xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.se  (long name).  I use echo xxxx.mooo.com > /etc/hostname to change it.10:47
dr_willisyou dint have firwarding set rught then. use a custome port10:47
ZykoticK9dr_willis, BTW you where correct the other night about sudo timing out after 15 minutes, but you can't test using a watch command, the timer resets each time you run sudo.  I ended up using a sleep command to test it.  Thanks for your input however.10:47
wols_soulis77-SE: you don't put a FQDN into /etc/hostname10:47

wols_rigved: why maverick updates and not just maverick?10:50
wols_rigved: but if ffmpeg is in maverick-updates then that's fine10:50
rigvedwols_: any is fine with me. i just need ffmpeg 0.6 to play .webm files10:50
th0rJoshun: do you have the ssh server installed and running?10:50
Joshunyes it is running fine10:50
Joshunworks under the local network10:50
Joshunbut not over the internet th0r10:51
antivirtelhello! How does that card/transformer called, with what I can use a GDI printer under UNIX (I needed for ubuntu, but it is usually made for Mac)?10:51
rigvedwols_: so, maverick or maverick-updates? i just thought that the updates will give me more stabler version? just a thought...10:51
wols_rigved: just try it. dunno if ffmpeg is in m-updates. you will find out tho10:52
wildgooseJoshun: Do you have an option to manually set the ports being forwarded?10:52
TBotNiktomodachi: Wrote this up at:  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11076068#post11076068  I had found a HOWTO on bridging, but working with mordy on #linux was not able to make it work.  last attempt I manually entered: "ip addr del dev wlan0; brctl addbr br0; brctl addif br0 wlan0; brctl addif br0 eth0; ip addr add dev br0" @ cmd line and that took me down and had to reboot, so still totally stumped on this10:52

dr_willisI dont just forward port 22 -> 22. i use a custome port# going to 2210:53

dr_willisssh has a -p port# option........10:56

dr_willisif you use dyndns you can set up a nice name..  and ssh yourdyndns.org -p 333310:56
Sidewinder1antivirtel, If your printer is unsupported, it probably won't work in linux; that is the manufacturer's fault!10:56
dr_willisassuming the router forwards port 3333 to the right box.10:57
vanquish349sbeck: ?10:57
Joshunwildgoose - is this the right command? ssh -R 7777:
antivirtelSidewinder1 yeah, I know, but I want to check that card's price on ebay!10:57
oCeanJoshun: I think your ssh forward does work10:57
wols_Joshun: first, manage to actually login to your ubuntu before doing port forwarding10:57

vanquish349i have only just gone from windows to ubuntu so i dont know much11:03
ActionParsnipJoshun: then reboot you router, see if it helps. Cheap home grade routers need rebooting11:03
oCeanJoshun: the fact that you cannot connect from your local network might be a setup/routing issue, or even some firewall issue at the hub11:03
wols_vanquish349: do what?11:03
Joshuni'll reboot the router and see if that helps11:03

coffiemansorry i am using ubuntu 10.1011:43
GartralOxymoron: the reason it doesn't is because you're removing a metapackage, you should try removing te wine-data package ;)11:43
coffiemanplz help me geeks11:43
racheal_jmoey : try from where?11:43
Jmoeyfrom a command line11:43

OxymoronActionParsnip: Thanks for tiping regarding Wine 1.3. You know why 1.3 works but n.2? :Pot 111:44
Jmoeyracheal_ - go into the terminal. If you are using gnome2 then do Applications>Accessories>Terminal. Under unity click the ubuntu logo and type terminal11:44
Jmoeythat is if you are using unity11:44
OxymoronGartral: Hmm, but meta or not it should be remove all related.11:44
racheal_Jmoey : i told right, i am unable to even login11:44
Jmoeyracheal_ - log into a tty (control-alt-f1) and run dmesg | less11:45
Jmoeysee if there are any errors11:45
GartralOxymoron: there's method behind that madness: sometimes another application could use libs or other parts of a program, even if the main program isn't there11:45
ActionParsnipOxymoron: wine is a weird creature, your app obviously needs the extra features. I suggest you contact the Sonos guys to get them to make a Linux client. They make an android one, so why not :)11:46
wh1zz0Please guys, what do I press when my computer enters suspend mode. when ever it does, my caps locks and lock buttons keep flashing and I don't know how to resume my machine back.. So I usually press and hold the power button till it goes off (which is bad for the machine). Please what do I press to resume each time it suspends?11:46
racheal_Jmoey : i cant login so how will i press control alt f1?11:46
Jmoeyracheal_ do it anyway11:46
Jmoeyyou don't need to login to do it11:46
OxymoronActionParsnip: Hehe I think people already did. But they know most people using Mac OS or Windows and they are focus on paying customers I guess .... But sure I can ask. Took a heck long time for SPotify to make a QT client :P11:46
racheal_its not possable unless i login or something11:46
Jmoeyits a system-wide shortcut11:46
OxymoronActionParsnip: The Sonos controller works pretty well I must say :)11:47
Oxymoronin wine11:47
racheal_Jmoey : ok i will try11:47
Gartralwh1zz0: the flashing Lock lights indicate there was a BIOS halt.. the best thing to do is disable S1 in BIOS and try again, if that doesn't work, don't suspend11:47
Jmoeyrachael_ - if that doesn't work do alt+sysq+r11:47
OxymoronGartral: Well, then they check if the package is related ONLY to the removing package or not :D11:47
Jmoeyand then do control alt f111:47

ubottuwh1zz0: In an emergency, you may be able to shutdown cleanly and reboot by holding down Alt+PrintScreen and typing, in succession, R, E, I, S, U and B. For an explanation, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key11:48
GartralOxymoron: that was an old behavior, but some packages don't request a lock on dependencies right, so that feature was dropped11:48
OxymoronBAH Q4wine is not support version 1.3 ...11:48
OxymoronGartral: Why not fix those packages instead of drop the feature? :P11:49

Pyrainejrib: in Windows I have a similar issue, in the audio preferences when choosing the output I can choose one that is stereo speaker or one that is sub woofer11:58
OxymoronoCean: Are you sure? :P Maybe ubuntu does some graph-fu and jump over the problem of grpahics? :P11:58

huntwols_: does the glxinfo output mean that my driver has 3D support or my gpu?13:23
wols_hunt: it does13:23
Laserswols_: 5GB according to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements13:23
coz_hunt,   which video card do you have,,, in terminal    lspci | grep -i vga13:24
huntcoz_: its a radeon X 160013:24
Sidewinder1Abhijit, Just about anything a relatively new ubuntu user wants to know. :-)13:24
wols_Lasers: I doubt this statement. unless ubuntu grew more than 1GB in a year13:24
coz_hunt,  this may be a bit old      Compiz requires at least a Radeon 7000 (or M6). For 7000 to HDxxxx series cards, you can use the open source "radeon" driver. HD* cards are also supported by the proprietary "fglrx" driver.13:24
Laserswols_: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu_(operating_system)#System_requirements13:24
AbhijitSidewinder1, do not refer that how to remove k/u/xubuntu article on that website. it breaks it13:25
coz_hunt,  so according to t hat i would assume it should work13:25
wols_coz_: a radeon 1600 is anything but old13:25
coz_wols_,  no I meant the readout may be old13:25
wols_at least for compiz and such13:25
coz_not the card13:25
huntcoz_: how do I know which driver is currently in use?13:25
wols_hunt: radeon is in use, as seen in your Xorg.0.log13:25
coz_hunt,    for ati I am not sure,, I have absolutely no experience with ati13:25
Titan_windowsSidewinder1: i still haven't MB5Sum'd13:26

Sidewinder1Abhijit, With all due respect, did you even look at: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/index.php13:26
huntcoz_: yes, classic without effects13:26
coz_hunt,  ok open a terminal13:26
* mediawork going to linux kernel to solve an ubuntu problem13:26
coz_hunt,     compiz --replace & disown13:26

coz_hunt_, ok now open that either  from the  system/preferences menu or in terminal or alt+F2     ccsm13:31
CaptainQuirkI don't have a dual boot, I don't need any win thing, I think. Super grub disk should do the job13:32

hunt_coz_: right.13:32
Sidewinder1CaptainQuirk, I'm not reading fast enough; sorry... :-(13:32
dr_willisCaptainQuirk:  a normal ubuntu live should do the job of reinstalling grub also. if you use the right commandline commands.13:32

Edlerin shared webhosting environnements13:34
Edlerhow can a php script (control panel), create webhosting accoutns13:34
Edlerdoesn't apache need root permissions for that13:34
PolahCaptainQuirk: Probably a bad disk, should shift during booting from the disk and select "verify integrity" (or something similar to that) from the menu it gives you. If you can't even get to that then you should probably redownload the image and reburn it.13:35
Titan_windows*facepalm* thx wols_13:35

PolahCaptainQuirk: I didn't say launch the live session, I said to verify the disk integrity. Titan_Windows: You'll want to do this too to verify disk integrity. Hold shift while attempting to boot from it and select "verify disk integrity" or a line similar to that from the menu that drops down.13:37

CaptainQuirkPolah, I get the following error message : invalid compressed format / system halted13:39
PolahSilverZ: I can't help you with that personally, perhaps someone else can; hang around for a while and wait.13:39
SilverZyes i did a fresh install13:39
SilverZok thanks13:40
Sidewinder1SilverZ, And after the fresh install you got a kernel panic?13:40
duelleHi there, my shortcuts for copy & paste seem to be "corrupted". If I copy "Test", the pasted String ist "`jm". In terminal I can still copy correctly via middle mouse.13:41
SilverZno the initial install went fine13:41
SilverZthen after it did the auto update and restarted i got the kernel panic13:41
PolahCaptainQuirk: You said you can get into the system but it doesn't function properly. Have you tried accessing another TTY (Ctrl+Alt+F1-F6) rather than the default graphical one?13:41
SilverZnow when I start the computer it just brings up the kernel panic message13:41
ActionParsnipduelle: i advise you install parcellite, it solves everything :)13:41
motzthe mouse arrow just stopped. what should I do?13:41
duelleActionParsnip: Does it fix the shortcuts etc or ist it "just" a gui for clipboard?13:42
ray9naHi. I've got Lucid on a netbook. How do I set up Evolution so I can just use the calendar? It wants me to give it an email address.13:42
Sidewinder1SilverZ, Try booting to LiveCD and have a look at the hard drive... See if anything "jumps-out" at you.13:42
Lasers!info parcellite | duelle13:42
ubottuduelle: parcellite (source: parcellite): lightweight GTK+ clipboard manager. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.9.3-1 (natty), package size 44 kB, installed size 368 kB13:42
CaptainQuirkPolah, I never said I could get to the system13:42
SilverZhmmm, i don't even know what i would be looking for13:43
CaptainQuirkI can see the live CD menu, but that's all13:43
Lasersduelle: It keep a list of all clipboard records so you can preserve many clipboards.13:43
Titan_windowsPolah: i can't find anything like that at all. I'm probably not doing it as you described13:43
SilverZi'm brand new to linux, I don't know what a "kernel panic" implies13:43
Sidewinder1SilverZ, Neither do I; it may be a hardware issue since you said the machine was old.13:44
slim_gazaHi guys I need your recommendation here. I am a student and I have 6 months to dedicate on a single technology. Which would you recommend I do, should I focus on improving my use with django or contributing to pypy? thanks guys13:44
duelleActionParsnip: Ok, just installed it. But the String displayed by parcellite seems still to be corrupted.13:44
PolahCaptainQuirk: You said it was acting strangely. I assumed that meant you could reach it but it was malfunctioning. The problem seems to be a malfunctioning disk. Checksum your ISO and redownload it if necessary and reburn the disk or create a LiveUSB13:44
oCeanslim_gaza: you can try #ubuntu-offtopic, this is ubuntu support channel13:44
humehi... I have a server and a client, both running ubuntu 11.04, but with different times set. Both run ntpd. What might be wrong? (how can ntpd give different times...?)13:44
slim_gazaoCean, okay thanks13:45
jiltdil<Sidewinder1>something issue related with ur grub i think13:45
ActionParsnipduelle: parcellite is a great paste manager, Linux needs the source app you are pasting from to be open to paste from it. Parcelite solves this well13:45
CaptainQuirkPolah, No, I said it was acting strangely before I was shut out of it13:45
PolahTitan_windows: When you put the disk in, hold shift during boot and it should give you a menu. One of the options (near the bottom, I think) is "verify disk integrity" or "check disc data" or something along those lines, I can't recall exactly.13:45
SilverZyeah I'm thinking it might be a RAM issue, I knew this laptop has had RAM issues in the past13:45

Sidewinder1jiltdil, I have no idea as I have never had the pleasure of "kernel-panic", thank the deities/13:46
PolahTitan_windows: You need to shut down and boot into the disc, not just put it in while running Windows.13:46
Titan_windowsOh :/13:46
duelleActionParsnip: Sorry didnt get your point i think. If I copy "daemon" the resulting string displayed by parcellite is something like ´jm and a following special char13:46
Titan_windowsshould I rather do it on the other machine then?13:46
humeThinkT510, both set to Stockholm, Sweden. difference is 5-10 minutes13:46
Titan_windowsthe one i'm trying to isntall linux one13:46
AbhijitTitan_windows, if you want to test then you use vitual machine13:46
CaptainQuirkPolah, the supergrub disk I'm using to try to fix the mbr doesn't work either.13:47
duelleSo in which way can parcellite help to solve that problem13:47
PolahTitan_windows: Put it in whichever machine you're aiming to install or run Ubuntu on.13:47
ThinkT510hume: odd, sorry i can't think of what might be wrong13:47
oCeanAbhijit: sudo netstat -tulpa will show your listening processes at various ports13:47
SilverZthank you all for the help, take care13:47
PolahCaptainQuirk: I can't help you with that, perhaps try asking in #grub and telling them what error that's giving you.13:47
ionitei got an error when booting from my USB from bios.  It reads: Com 32R Image error 800113:47
AbhijitoCean, ok13:47
Titan_windowsPolah: so practically: start comp, press F8, select the CD, press enter and start holding shift?13:47
Titan_windowsuntil a menu pops up13:48
PolahTitan_windows, yes that should do it. Although, by default the machine will boot from the CD if there is a bootable disk present, at least it should do.13:48
jiltdilAbhijit: netstat -nlptun for locally13:48
humeThinkT510, got any idea on workaround? can I manually set a time-shift on the client? that sticks between reboots13:48
CaptainQuirkPolah, I think I could use any CD I want, it wouldn't work because I fear that my problem is hardware related13:48
ThinkT510hume: the only other thing i can think of is if they are set to different ntpd servers13:48
Abhijitjiltdil, thanks13:49
CaptainQuirkI'm just trying to narrow things down13:49
ThinkT510hume: sorry, i have no experience with that13:49
ionitecan anyone help me with my Error 8001. COM 32R Image error?13:49
PolahCaptainQuirk: If you're getting the same error then perhaps.13:49
ray9naHey, everyone. I'm trying to set up Evolution just so I can use the calendar function. I don't want it pulling in email. What's a good work-around for that? I'm using Lucid if that's relevant.13:49
jiltdilAbhijit:anytime :)13:49
Polahionite: If you were to give us some context of what's giving you that error.13:49
CaptainQuirkPolah, not the same error per se, but an impossibility to access the hard drive13:49
uboontuIf I don't check to format existing partition(in which I want to install Ubuntu), will my data on that partition be saved?13:50
ionitei'm booting from USB SD drive and the installation wont proceed.13:50
CaptainQuirkCan I force a root terminal session to make a fsck ?13:50
jiltdilionite: from bios menu select boot from usb13:50
Polahuboontu: Ubuntu will overwrite things it needs to etc. I'd back up the data you need to keep to be sure.13:50
ThinkT510uboontu: you thinking of using an existing /home partition with a new install?13:50
uboontuPolah, so it should not delete everything? I already did backup13:51
uboontuThinkT510, I already have Ubuntu on existing partition, and I want to do fresh install on it13:51
uboontuThinkT510, and I wanna know if my data in /home will be saved13:51
CaptainQuirkPolah, Can I force a root terminal session to make a fsck ?13:51
uboontuCaptainQuirk, yes13:52
duelleActionParsnip: Lasers : Is there any possibility to reset the shortcut settings to default? Or to control whether they are correct? Couldnt find copy/paste anywhere in keybind-settings13:52
CaptainQuirkuboontu, when and how ?13:52
ThinkT510uboontu: if it is a seperate partition you could choose to save it and not format it, but if it is part of your / partition its a little more tricky13:52
uboontuCaptainQuirk: I just answered your question13:52
uboontuThinkT510, I did not get anything so I will just format it :-D13:53
CaptainQuirkuboontu, I just got "yes"13:53
SoGooDhow can i make a small sized live ubuntu ISO? the one with only a web browser, a file manager, a network manager a media player and all essential system files :D13:53
Polah_ionite: Does it boot into the Live session at all?13:53
stercorWhat's a recommended firewall for Ubuntu?13:53
Polah_!minimal | SoGooD13:53
ubottuSoGooD: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD13:53
ThinkT510uboontu: i suppose you could back it up and then overwrite the /home partition from the fresh install with the backup (just be careful of usernames and installed applications)13:53
oCean!ufw | stercor13:53
ubottustercor: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Gufw (GNOME) and Guarddog (KDE Lucid and Maverick) also exist.13:53
dr_willisSoGooD:  theres prob. some ubuntu-varants that allready do that.13:53
wh1zz0It just happened again13:54
SoGooD i need to do that because i got my SSD dead, and all i have now is a 2gb usb stick for my netbook13:54
CaptainQuirkuboontu, I would like to know if there's a way from the grub menu to launch a root session13:54
Polah_stercor: Ubuntu comes with one built in, you can use ufw to configure iptables to define access.13:54
wh1zz0I noticed that it happens when I unplug my battery from power supply13:54
ThinkT510wh1zz0: is this the 3rd time now?13:55
Sidewinder1stercor, Regarding security, you may wish to peruse: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=51081213:55
wh1zz0ThinkT510: Yeah13:55
uboontuCaptainQuirk, oh sorry. I dont know13:55
wh1zz0And I lost every thing again13:55
dr_willisSoGooD:  you can set up a live/peristant save on a 2gb. but that will be tight. You can get a very useable tinycorelinux setup in 2gb13:55

jiltdil<CaptainQuirk> Are you talking about this13:55
wh1zz0Not at all13:55
wh1zz0It wasn't13:55
Sidewinder1wh1zz0, I sent you a PN, did you get it?13:55
ThinkT510wh1zz0: it was13:55
wh1zz0In fact.. it was set to hibernate13:55
SoGooDwill that load up my wifi ccconnection?13:55
Sidewinder1PM, even.13:55
ActionParsnipduelle: its a dedicated app for copy / pasting so should handle it better, it also has history so you can paste past things (multiple clipboards)13:56
wh1zz0Sidewinder1: Not at all13:56
SoGooDdr_willis, will that load up my wifi ccconnection?13:56

wendellplease help13:57
wh1zz0ThinkT510: It was?13:57
wols_CaptainQuirk: yes13:57
Titan_windowsPolah_: nope, no such menu appeared. I held shift from the moment i booted the CD until the "Try Ubuntu"/"Install Ubuntu" screen appeared13:57
dr_willisSoGooD:  with the  wifi drivers.. should.13:57
ThinkT510wh1zz0: sorry, hibernate, but to me thats the same thing13:57
Guest90727i am here13:57
wh1zz0Nopes.. there different13:57
Polah_alex--, that would depend on what type of server you want to secure.13:57
duelleActionParsnip: Ok, but even parcellite shows those strange strings. So it doesnt really solve the problem. Is there any possibility to reset keybinds/copy/paste back to default settings or to review those settings?13:57
ActionParsnipwendell: are you fully updated13:57
ActionParsnipduelle: very weird13:57
Polah_Titan_windows: Left shift? I recall someone having trouble before by holding right shift13:57
wh1zz0hibernate just shuts it down and resumes from where ever it was13:57
=== ross is now known as Guest18823
alex--Polah_: i mean a list that says: change ssh port to 545345413:57
ThinkT510wh1zz0: regardless, hibernate powers off your machine13:57
ActionParsnipduelle: not sure where the setting is stored tbh13:58
alex--that kind of things13:58
Polah_alex--, here might be a good place to start: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Security13:58
wendellActionParsnip: I haven't run Update Manager yet i literally just installed and am installing additional drivers13:58
Titan_windowsPolah_: i can try again with left shift... or i could just go straight ahead to burning a new CD at a lower speed and try that13:58
wh1zz0ThinkT510:  BUt this suspend just puts my machine to a standstill while the two lights keep blinking.. and there's no way to resume13:58
wh1zz0.. unless I power off13:58
alex--Polah_: thx13:58
Polah_Titan_windows: Try left shift.13:58
ThinkT510wh1zz0: you can tell i don't use suspend or hibernate13:58
Titan_windowsit takes so much time tho :/13:58
Titan_windowsfine. brb13:58
wh1zz0This thing it really killing me13:58
SoGooDhere's my idea, i will make a live usb, uninstall all unwanted packages, make a clone of the live usb after removing those packages. will that work?13:59
wh1zz0ThinkT510: How did you do that?13:59
ThinkT510wh1zz0: do what?13:59
wh1zz0ThinkT510: Or you don't use X at all?13:59
dr_willisSoGooD:   you mean do a normal install to usb...13:59
wendellActionParsnip: should update fix most if not all of the issues?13:59
wh1zz0ThinkT510: How did you disable hibernate and suspend?13:59
wendellActionParsnip: updating*13:59
Polah_alex--: I don't see anything about changing the SSH port in the SSH section there, but to change it edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and change the first line from "port 22" to "port <port you want to use>", save it and then restart the ssh service13:59
ThinkT510wh1zz0: look at your power settings, you have it set to hibernate on low battery14:00
alex--Polah_: make it harder for attackers to see which port i'm using14:00
SoGooDyes, i will install just into a usb stick, that's why i need to trim off its size14:00
duelleActionParsnip: Now im a bit confused. It works correctly now. But im not sure how long this will last. do you know the terminal command for copying text to clipboard and paste from clipboard?14:00
Polah_alex--: They can't see which port you're using. You might get connection attempts on port 22, which is why you should change it to something else so it'll just refuse SSH connections.14:00
CaptainQuirkwols_, I try to do it, but the computer reboots automatically14:01
alex--that's what i mean14:01
alex--i should change it from 22 to sth else14:01
wh1zz0So what should it be instead of hibernate..?14:01
alex--but isn't there a guide like that?14:01
wh1zz0ThinkT510: Cus I see only 3 options there.. shutdown, hibernate and suspend14:01
Polah_SoGooD: Don't get the normal ISO and then trim it down, get the minimal ISO and then build upon that to get what you want. Of course, depends on how much you plan to be adding/removing. If you're only going to remove a small amount then perhaps the normal ISO and then trimming would be more efficient.14:01
ThinkT510wh1zz0: look at the options in the drop down list14:01
Feriushi folks. have any one of you tried to run ubuntu 11.04 on machine with intel i7-2630qm with sandy bridge technology and Nvidia gt540m?14:01
wh1zz0ThinkT510: yEA.. Just looked at it again.. I have just those 3 options14:02
CaptainQuirkI think I'm screwed ...14:02
ThinkT510wh1zz0: you don't have a nothing option?14:02
Polah_alex--: I just told you how to do it. Edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and change the first line (non comment) from port 22 to port 2350, for example. Or any port number you want really (within the range of ports, that is). Then save it and restart SSH14:02
SoGooDPolah_ : here's my problem, i got two laptops, the other is dead the other is what i'm using now.14:02
alex--Polah_: i mean a list which says: change port 22 to sth else, change port 21 to this and that, not only for ssh, but for all14:03
wh1zz0ThinkT510: At all14:03
ThinkT510wh1zz0: my options are nothing, suspend, shutdown and ask14:03
wols_CaptainQuirk: could be a bad disk or only bad files (like the kernel). can't say from here14:03
terryPolah_: alex-- AND, after you switch to a non-standard port, you could go a step further and set an iptables rule to block all port 22 traffic from outside.14:03
wh1zz0ThinkT510: Jesus.. Lol.. for real?14:03
ThinkT510wh1zz0: yup, using xubuntu14:03
SoGooDif i will use minimal iso and build it through the net, it can't be because my internet is only for a single machine14:04
Titan_windowsPolah_: same again. when exactly is the menu supposed to pop up? D:14:04
ThinkT510wh1zz0: i prefer xfce14:04
Polah_terry: alex--: Outside the IP ranges you want, else you wouldn't be able to connect to the SSH server anywhere.14:04
alex--terry: is there any way to let the attacker think i dont exist?14:04
Polah_Titan_windows: Pops up on your screen instead of loading the live session.14:04
alex--i mean: that the server doesn't says: hey i'm alive14:04
terryalex--: you can also block port 11314:04
Titan_windowsPolah_: so it's supposed to pop up before the try/install menu?14:04
Titan_windowsthen it failed14:04
Polah_alex--: Refuse unauthorised connections via iptables.14:04
CaptainQuirkwols_, well it would not explain why the live CD won't launch a live session14:04
terryalex--: And others  but mostaly 11314:04
alex--terry: is there any way to let the attacker think i dont exist? when you try on port 22, but the server just keeps itself quiet, so the attacker thinks: server is down14:04
Titan_windowsmy gut tells me to just try to burn a new CD14:04
Polah_Titan_windows: Yes, holding shift during boot should cause it to pop up.14:04
alex--is there any list which service uses whcih port?14:05
CaptainQuirkwols_, could it be ram related ?14:05
Titan_windowsPolah_: maybe my computer is too old for that or something?14:05
terryPolah_: What i'm saying is to block port 22 specifically.  That way, the hacker sees "filtered"14:05
Titan_windowsPolah_: it's from 1999...14:05
Polah_Titan_windows: Doesn't depend on the computer, depends on the disc you have.14:05
wh1zz0Whew.. Please is there anyone here using ubuntu (natty) who has the "Do nothing" option in power management preferences?14:05
terryPolah_: Since your not using port 22 anyway, it doesn't matter.14:06
Titan_windowsPolah_: well since i know the iso isn't damaged, i can just assume the disc is and i'll make a new one at the proper speed14:06
wols_CaptainQuirk: could be too. run memtest to check14:06
Ace2ohi guys,  is it better to use aptitude update or apt-get update?14:06
CaptainQuirkwolfric, Polah_ , I have an impressive number of errors in the memtest14:06
wols_Ace2o: doesn't matter. same14:06
SoGooDdr_willis: will this work? i will boot a live usb and plug in another usb stick where i will install ubuntu. Then, i will uninstall all the packages i don't want before i will install to that other stick.14:07
ThinkT510wh1zz0: i'm curious, can i see a screenshot of your dropdown list (i never use gnome or unity)14:07
Polah_Ace2o: whichever on you prefer.14:07
wols_CaptainQuirk: new mobo or new DRAM or new CPU in your future. congrats (I guess...)14:07
dr_willisSoGooD:  you dont 'uninstall' stuff from a live usb14:07
CaptainQuirkwols_, Polah_ , well, the problem is that I just bought a new one14:07
wols_CaptainQuirk: lower your settings. relax timings, lower the clock for your memory14:07
Polah_CaptainQuirk: Have you tried booting with alternate RAM?14:07
Ace2owols_,  is upgrading the same too?14:08
wols_CaptainQuirk: could be only one stick of your several is bad.try to change around14:08
CaptainQuirkPolah_, how do I do that ?14:08
wols_Ace2o: pretty much. is mostly a matter of choice14:08
Polah_Ace2o: You can't upgrade your system through apt, unless you mean just upgrading packages in which case again, whichever on you prefer to use.14:08
Ace2oi've read articles where they prefer aptitude over apt-get and it just confuses me14:08
CaptainQuirkPolah_, oh, you mean opening it and changing the ram14:08
Polah_CaptainQuirk: Find some alternate sticks of RAM and replace the ones in your computer with them and trying again14:09
wh1zz0Okie.. I think I've found a solution, I'll just go through it. http://www.liberiangeek.net/2011/06/enable-do-nothing-when-laptop-lid-is-closed-in-ubuntu-11-04-natty-narwhal/14:09
Polah_CaptainQuirk, if you have more than one stick, try booting with just one in and then if that fails try with just the other.14:09
CaptainQuirkPolah_, I'll start by that yes14:09
Polah_CaptainQuirk: Hopefully only one of the sticks will be malfunctioning, in that case.14:09
ThinkT510wh1zz0: seems like a silly feature to not include14:10
Ace2ook, so from what I understand i can update the repositories either way but only upgrade using "aptitude" right?14:10
Polah_ Ace2o: Upgrade packages or your OS version?14:10
wols_Ace2o: no. you can upgrade using either. or by using synaptic, or yet another libapt based program14:10
wh1zz0ThinkT510: Lol.. Why would that be totally forgotten14:10
Ace2ojust security and packages14:10
wh1zz0ThinkT510: Jeez14:10
Polah_Ace2o: Either one can upgrade packages. apt-get upgrade14:11
wh1zz0ThinkT510: Well, there must be a reason14:11
ThinkT510wh1zz0: things like that explain why i don't use unity or gnome14:11
anli_Where do I find gtk+ in synaptic?14:11
anli_Searching for gtk+ gives me a billion of blind hits14:11

Ace2ocan anyone tell me what is safe-upgrade?14:13
CaptainQuirkPolah_, is there any chance that they are supposed to be for different kinds of sticks ?14:13
ThinkT510wh1zz0: i customise it a bit from the default look (i'm in arch at the mo but same setup for xubuntu)14:13
Polah_CaptainQuirk: Alternating colours? Probably just for better aesthetics/ease of seeing them14:13
Incarus6anli_, what exactly are you looking for?14:14
Polah_CaptainQuirk: Perhaps you could return the faulty stick under warranty if it's only two months old. Depends how long the warranty you got on it is/was, of course14:14
CaptainQuirkPolah_, ok, then I'm going to add two 512 sticks to cover for the 2go loss until I get a new one14:14
SoGooDdr_willis : isn't that possible?14:15
Polah_Ace2o: I imagine it performs the same as apt-get's dist-upgrade. It only upgrades packages suitable for your distribution (I believe that's how it functions), useful if you aren't running the latest version of Ubuntu14:15
CaptainQuirkPolah_, Yeah, I will probably do that. If the memory test failed, is there any chance that it's for other reason ?14:15

Titan_windowsPolah_: 48x speed compatible, but the last CD obviously didn't work14:17

thrillERboyHi, what is the best software for mounting iso and disk images?14:18
wh1zz0ThinkT510: who knows, perhaps maybe it's the bugs in unity causing most of my problems14:18
carl_Hi, I've just switched over from windows 7 which I found too slow to ubuntu. I used firefox before and I saved my profile into an archive. I read the instructions on the mozilla blog but when I try typing ./firefox -profilemanager it says no such directory exists14:18
ThinkT510wh1zz0: xfce is very underrated in my opinion, definitlt worth a try14:18
Polah_!best | thrillERboy14:18
ubottuthrillERboy: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.14:18
carl_My question is, where do I put my profile so when I start firefox, it loads my settings?14:19
Polah_thrillERboy, you could try AcetoneISO, it's what I've used. I don't know of any others.14:19
dr_willisthrillERboy:  use the mount command as needed . :)14:19
Polah_carl_: /home/<username>/.mozilla/firefox/profiles14:19
thrillERboyThanks Polah_ dr_willis14:19
Polah_carl_: Sorry, just /home/<username>/.mozilla/firefox14:20
dr_willis!iso | thrillERboy14:20
ubottuthrillERboy: To mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.14:20
=== Polah_ is now known as Polah
ActionParsnipPolah_: could just use $HOME/.mozilla/firefox14:20
wh1zz0ThinkT510: Does dreamweaver run fine on your machine using wine?14:20
carl_polah_:Thanks. I don't want to use the command line if I can avoid it, can I just drag and paste the profile from the file manager?14:21
wh1zz0ThinkT510: And can you share your LAN connection via WiFi adhoc?14:21
thrillERboyaetas: Remember me? can recover my disk file, so reinstalled. From now on, I'll backup root.disk every week ;)14:21
ThinkT510wh1zz0: never tried it, don't do any website editing, you can check the wine appdb14:21
anli_Can I make my ubuntu unusable by installing gtk+3.0 from src?14:21
dr_willislearn the command line.. :) just learn it. Your patience will be rewarded.14:21
Incarus6anli_, I think it is not inclued, you will need to install that package: http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/libgtk-3-dev14:21
Polahcarl_: Sure, go to your Home folder and press ctrl+H to show hidden files, open up .mozilla and then go down into firefox14:21
ThinkT510wh1zz0: never tried adhoc wifi mode14:21
thrillERboydr_willis: what should I give as mount point? sorry, me half n00b14:22
anli_Do I have to add something to my sources.list then?14:22
Polahcarl_: also like dr_willis said, you'd benefit from learning how to do things from command line14:22
dr_willis!mount | thrillERboy14:22
ubottuthrillERboy: mount is used to attach devices to directories. See also https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount14:22
dr_willisthrillERboy:  make a directory.. you mount to a directory14:22
Incarus6anli_, I don't think so but I suppose you use Lucid, correct?14:22
thrillERboySo I can mount to any folder?? dr_willis thats what furious ISO was doing I guess.14:22
dr_willisthrillERboy:  thats how mount works...14:23
anli_I use 10.1014:23
dr_willisthrillERboy:  sudo mkdir /media/PICKANAME      then 'sudo mount /dev/whatever /media/PICKANAME' is the basics of it all14:23
carl_I think I'm going to have to. I liked how with windows 98 I didn't need the command line anymore. I don't want to go back to it. There's a reason a GUI is so easy to use, but I'm not going to win any points by saying that14:23
dr_williscarl_:  i use the command line on windows7 all the time. :)14:24
wh1zz0ThinkT510: Okie ... still looking for a workaround and since I didn't find, decided to use VM14:24
dr_willisthere are text/ncurses based file managers14:24
kkb110Isn't there a utility that I can perform something like           'copy to clipboard 1'       'paste from clipboard 3'14:24
wh1zz0ThinkT510: But photoshop works well for me14:24
Sidewinder1carl_, I've been using ubuntu since 2007, and almost, never use CLI. :-)14:24
dr_williskkb110:  theres some clipboard utilitues with history buffers.14:24
ThinkT510wh1zz0: virtualbox i use though, its very good14:25
Polahcarl_: You're forgetting that the Linux command line is extremely powerful and there's a lot of things you can do with it. Often quicker than looking through a GUI.14:25
edbiancarl_: I have been using ubuntu since 2007 and I almost always use cli14:25
Stevezauis there a channel for 11.10?14:25
dr_willisStevezau:  #ubuntu+114:25
carl_good for you dr_willis. I see the command line as something that has to be used, not something I want to use. Anyway, I got into my firefox directory. Saw some profile called 685345f.default. No folder called "profile" though. I'm wondering where I put my stuff.14:25
PolahStevezau: #ubuntu+114:25
kkb110dr_willis, yes, but that's not enough to do that14:25
wh1zz0ThinkT510: So I heard, so mI'm giving it a try.. Buh I hope it doesn't hang up like a Remote Desktop Session?14:25
edbiankkb110: What did you ask for? I missed it.14:25
rbnswartzcarl_ yes the Linux command line is pure power and I use it quite a bit14:25
kkb110ed1703, Isn't there a utility that I can perform something like           'copy to clipboard 1'       'paste from clipboard 3'14:25
dr_willisPure Powar! :)14:26
dr_willisIve never noticed there being more then 1 clipboard..14:26

CaptainQuirkPolah, wols_ , thanks for your help, you saved my day .. Good by14:26
thrillERboythanks dr_willis14:26
kkb110dr_willis, a clipboard manager can emulate that I guess14:26
Incarus6anli_, you are probably looking for that package, try to install it: http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/libgtk2.0-dev14:26
Polahcarl_: For an example, to copy a file you need to open up both directories in nautilus, select it in one, press ctrl+C or right click > copy, switch to the other window and then ctrl+V or right click > paste. With command line you can just do "cp /path/to/file /path/to/destination". Unless you type really slow,  it'll generally be quicker.14:26
dr_williskkb110:  i mentioned using a clipboard manager earlier. :)14:27
edbiankkb110: xclip does not have multiple clipboards.  I don't think there is a linux tool that does14:27
kkb110edbian, lol but you think it's useful?14:27
kkb110dr_willis, but most of them just support history, not more, (a step left to get there)14:27
edbiankkb110: Eh, depends on what you wanna do.  It doesn't do anything the clipboard can't.  Just lets you put things on the clipboard using cli14:27
duelleThanks a lot for your help. byebye14:27
carl_ahh, I saw an ini file which says the path is 585hgsdkt.default, so If I change that to my profile's folder name, well, lessee what happens. Sorry, but you're not going to sell me the virtues of using the command line. I loathe it.14:27
dr_williscarl_:  firefox has a profile manager option. 'firefox -profile' (i think)14:28
carl_soo, what, type it into the command line?14:28
dr_willisto launch it.. yes..14:29
edbiancarl_: firefox --ProfileManager14:29
edbiancarl_: in a term14:29
dr_willis2 dashes or 1.. i never can rember.14:29
Sidewinder1carl_, For file manipulation, with root priv. use "gksudo nautilus, for editing root files use gksudo gedit.14:29
kkb110edbian, for example, let's say I use two sentences frequently, so I want to paste them often, but if would be better if there is a shortcut for each one that pastes the exact sentence I want14:29
edbian2 cause it is more than a single letter14:29
sudiptais there any channel for gnome shell?14:29
carl_profile requires a path it says14:29
dr_willisedbian:  not all apps follow that  standard.. java dosent i belive.14:29
edbiankkb110: I get the idea of 2 clipboards.  I do not think there is a tool in linux that does that.  xclip def does not do that.14:29
edbiandr_willis: oh really?14:29
dr_willisedbian:  try java --help vs java -help14:30
Polahsudipta: #gnome, ubuntu doesn't like gnome-shell though.14:30
Abhijitsudipta, #gnome on irc.gnome.org14:30
kkb110edbian, ok I see.. I guess the only option for me is developing it myself14:30
* edbian believes dr_willis 14:30
edbiankkb110: Or convincing and waiting for me to14:30
edbiancarl_: I think you have to get your profile out of that folder.14:30

Polahanli_: Maverick is Ubuntu 10.1014:31
carl_edbian: I just did it. It was so simple. I dragged and dropped the profile from the archive it was in. Double clicked on the profiles.ini, changed path to "profile" (yes, very imaginative name I know). Started it up, and it all works, save for my pardus copilot addon, but that's fine14:31
Titanoboabefore i proceed, i might aswell check so im not doing anything wrong at the install..14:32

semitones_edbian, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1331730&page=3, one person fixed it by making a /boot partition14:37
Sidewinder1Titanoboa, Perhaps, from LiveCD you could run System--> Administration--> Disk Utility and check the disk for errors/problems; it may be a hardware issue...?14:37

dr_williscarl_:  you should be able to check twinview/enable the tv. and hit apply and it should turn on. but it wont be totally right untill you save the x config. and restart the X server.14:44
TitanoboaSidewinder1: well I have this "Install Ubuntu 11.04" icon right above the "Home Folder" icon. Maybe that's where "System" is supposed to be?14:44
carl_ugh, so system restart then?14:44
edbiancarl_: configuring graphics requires a lot of those14:45

wendellOn an offtopic note: Updating is taking FOREVER.... I really hope it fixes the issues14:46
TitanoboaSidewinder1: did you mean palimpsest?14:46
carl_ok, going to restart. That ususally solves issues. See you soon if it doesn't14:46

giulyhi, i've got some troubles connecting my new printer via wireless. please can anybody  help me14:46
Sidewinder1Titanoboa, Check that! You'll probably need to use gksudo palimpset.14:46
TitanoboaSidewinder1: it opened disk utilities :)14:46
edbianwendell: That's a lot14:47
terrywendell: It WILL take a long time, depending on your connection speeds...14:47
edbianGeekMan: Can you pastebin ls /etc/rc2.d/  ?14:47

terrywendell: Is your connection speed 1.5Mbps ?14:48
Sidewinder1Titanoboa, Yes, gksudo palimpsest    sorry...14:48
wendellterry: I think it's more, but I'm too far away from my modem and router14:48
wendellterry: Too lazy to move the laptop... haha14:48
terrywendell: Wireless ?14:48
TitanoboaSidewinder1: just typing palimpsest opened disk utitilies (that's what we wanted right?) and gksudo palimpsest did nothing14:49
thauriswulfaHELP: Just installed xubuntu but their is no windows option in grub what to do?14:50
carl_Hi folks, back again. Restarted but nope, it's not picking up the telly14:50
Sidewinder1Titanoboa, "Few bad sectors" is not that unusual. It should, therefore, work; unfortunately, I've kinda' run out of idead, at this point, sorry. :-(14:50
edbianthauriswulfa: log into ubuntu, run sudo update-grub14:50
TitanoboaSidewinder1: what were we looking for in disk utilites though?14:50
Sidewinder1ideas, even.14:50
GeekMani forget how i use it i install pastebinit then type pastebinit -b ls    #under rc2.d dir14:50
=== Omega is now known as Troletariat
edbianTitanoboa: can you pastebin the output of sudo fdisk -l  for me?  paste.ubuntu.com14:50
Titanoboasure thing, hold on14:51
edbianGeekMan: paste.ubuntu.com  is probably easier14:51
Sidewinder1Titanoboa, Stand by, let me look...14:51
giulyany idea?14:51
semitones_edbian, ok i'm in gparted, everything looks normal to me14:51
semitones_what did you want to look for?14:52
edbiansemitones_: Ummm, what is your error again? :P14:52
Titanoboaedbian: after doing the palimpsest no commands are working, do i have to type something to go back or something14:52
ionitei got this error vesamenu.c3214:52
Sidewinder1Titanoboa, Under Disk Utility, you should be able to click on "Check/Repair File System"14:52
edbianTitanoboa: IDK.  close the terminal and open a new one14:53
ioniteI got this error: vesamenu.c32: Not a com32R image                            what should i do?14:53
edbianGeekMan: reading...14:53
=== Troletariat is now known as Omega
edbianGeekMan: I am very confused.  ssh is not listed here either!14:53
compdocTitanoboa, before checking your filesystem, in palimpsest click the SMART data button14:53
thauriswulfaedbian: it was not found on upgradation, is  there  any problem ,because i deleted one 100 mb partition while partitioning?14:54
edbianthauriswulfa: That might be a problem :(  Is this windows 7 ?14:54
dr_willisthauriswulfa:  you may have deleted the windows 7 'boot' partition...14:54
thauriswulfadr_willis: is there any way to restore that?14:54
ionitecan anyone help me?14:54
Titanoboacompdoc: on the Hard Disk or the 690MB file (which i suppose is the livecd)14:55
dr_willisive herd you can somehow fix that and make windows not use one.. but id say ask in #windows, or google.14:55
GeekMani went under etc/ and there is the following rc0.d rc1.d rc2.d 3 4 5 6 rcs.d rc.local14:55
terryedbian: What are you trying to do?  "confused"...?14:55
crazy3k_How much RAM can I have in a 32-bit Ubuntu system?14:55
edbianGeekMan: yeah... all run levels14:55
=== maxx is now known as Guest41300
edbiancrazy3k_: approx. 3.2Gb14:55
Polahcrazy3k_: Approximately 3.2GB14:55
compdocTitanoboa, select the hard drive, and open its smart data. any reallocated sectors? (in the raw data column)14:55
edbianterry: GeekMan is missing services he has installed in /etc/rc2.d/14:55
Titanoboayeah compdoc14:56
Polahedbian: hmm, is it Gb rather than GB, or did you mean GB?14:56
GeekManmaybe i should look under local maybe it wants to start at a user level14:56
Titanoboacompdoc: i can't seem to copy/paste it though14:56
semitones__crazy3k_, i heard you could use more too with a special method14:56
compdocTitanoboa, how many reallocated?14:56
edbianPolah: I meant GigaBytes   because nobody ever mean GigaBits14:56
GeekMani have no clue :P14:56
semitones__edbian, what did you want me to look for in gparted?14:56
Titanoboacompdoc: 1 sector14:56
thauriswulfadr_willis: thanks I 'll try14:56
Polahedbian: If you're talking about networking people do (:14:56
edbianGeekMan: Those are run levels.  rc2.d is the one normally used.  0 is for shutdown, 6 is for reboot, 1 is single user mode.  The others aren't really used in debian14:57
Titanoboacompdoc: actually, 2 sectors14:57
edbianPolah: :P14:57
carl_just tried restarting the telly to see if that'd help, nvidia x server still won't pick it up. I thought HDMI was supposed to be easier than vga?14:57
compdocTitanoboa, thats good its not more. Any Pending Sectors Count? or Offline Uncorrectable?14:57
semitones_edbian, error: out of disk. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=133173014:57
Polahedbian: You need to be specific, there's a bit difference between the two!14:57
crazy3k_edbian, Polah, semitones__: Thanks.14:57
edbianPolah: :)14:57
consolecowboyhello, I have auto-login enabled, and every time I boot I need to unlock the keyring 2, 3, sometimes 4 times. Fairly recent issue. I tried changing the password in Passwords and Encryption Keys to blank, but it seems it's reverting to my normal password.14:57
compdocTitanoboa, reallocated sectors are a concern - its something you need to watch. if that number grows, you need to replace the drive14:58
ioniteI got this error: vesamenu.c32: Not a com32R image                            what should i do?14:58
