pauloI'm a really pain in the ass but I have to ask some one to help me. I have a ASUS A6 and I'm not been capable to run wireless connection. I already read the topic http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=223503 but I really don’t understand it . I'm newby by cocomplete. Can anyone help me?00:00
Datzusually update-grub gives me back my other boot options, but not this time..00:00
ioniteszal: waht do u mean? should i remove the partial files?00:00
OmegaFortezteam, I know. I'm just saying that it has difficulties, but most, if not all are because the user doesn't know what "resolving dependencies" means.00:00
IdleOne!repeat | paulo00:00
ubottupaulo: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/00:00
pauloI'm sorry00:00
szalionite: I guess that wouldn't hurt either00:01
EgyParadoxDatz:Did you try port 22?00:01
zteamOmegaForte, well, did knew what that meant but not exactly how to that easy and without consuming alot of time00:01
ioniteszal: what's the command should i type to remove the partial files?00:01
EgyParadoxsince its sftp not ftp00:01
DatzEgyParadox: I haven't messed with the ftp config yet, but as long as it doesn't interfere with ssh, it might do the trick00:01
DatzI don't know if wordpress would need some additional configuring as well..00:01
OmegaFortezteam, Well usually with the code, you get a list of dependencies to go with it, sometimes not, but google is still a very good tool00:02
sweltmanHi Guys...Can I ask a Q about my ubuntu 11.04 Unity?00:02
Datz.!ask | sweltman :P00:02
szalionite: nah, that's just pkg lists, they will be replaced anyway if fresh ones can be fetched00:02
Datzor else if there is a #channel dedicated to unity?00:02
szalionite: if it were pkgs, that'd be something different00:02
sweltmanSomehow I "adjusted" and lost my title bars on all windows.  Not sure how to get them back00:02
Poliorceteshey guys ive searched the forums on this one but can't find an answer. for some reason i can't adjust the screen brightness via the Fn key, i get a display notification telling me it's dimming or brightening but nothing is actually happening00:03
Poliorcetesany ideas00:03
ioniteszal: i think they are packages?00:03
sweltmanDatz?  Any ideas?00:03
szalionite: no, they are package lists00:03
ioniteszal: so what should i do?00:04
szalionite: sudo apt-get update00:04
Datzsorry sweltman I don't use unity00:04
zteamOmegaForte, yes and sometimes that dependencys doesn't fit with your distro or version of the distro and sometimes google point you to instructions for 8.10 or something then u are using 10.10 or 11.04 yourself00:04
DatzI was just going to say to ask your question, don't ask to ask ;)00:04

pauloDoes any one have the patience to explain me step by step how to do it?00:06
moffa<ionite> sorry I meant ubuntu netbook edition00:06
szalionite: change or remove the country abbreviation in the "deb" URL for the "main" and "universe" repositories00:07

szal!info obkey00:09
ubottuPackage obkey does not exist in natty00:10

cyphahence i'm asking where one might place applications00:10
zteamOmegaForte for u yes, for me, it's time to sleep now00:10
moffa<cypha> why not use Keyboard Shortcuts?00:10
sweltmanOmega, duly noted. :)00:10
OmegaFortecypha, What is it?00:10
ioniteszal: so how do i open the file with the text editor?00:10
cyphait's an application00:10

cyphai need to create a menu item that points to running that python script00:12
zteamBye all00:12
OmegaFortecypha, Python scripts are Scripts. Not applications.00:12
cyphahence, i want to put it somewhere permanent00:12
cyphawhere can I put it?00:12
szalionite: first do me a favour: open a terminal, type 'pastebinit /etc/apt/sources.list' & give me the URL it returns; if pastebinit isn't installed, install it00:12
Datzthere is different criteria dictating which apps go where00:12
OmegaFortecypha, Then just make a folder somewhere you won't delete it, like mkdir /home/USRNM/folderdungus00:12
pauloDoes any one had the same problem has I do at this moment?00:12
OmegaFortecypha, Then right click the menu, and choose edit menu.00:12

OmegaFortecypha, Then find the catagory you want it in, and click that, and hit "New Item" and fill out the run command and args like you run it in bash.00:13

danielboston26is there a way to install gnome 3?00:13
szal!gnome3 | danielboston2600:13
cyphaOmegaForte: for example, in windows, there is "Program Files"00:13
ubottudanielboston26: Gnome 3 is not currently supported on Ubuntu. A PPA for natty is available at https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3 but these packages are EXPERIMENTAL and UNSTABLE, will break Unity and possibly other parts of your system, and cannot be downgraded safely.00:13
cyphawhere can I find the linux alternative?00:14
ioniteszal: unable to locate pastebinit00:14
gardnancypha, if you want to install a new application, generally there are instructions included on the website or in the tarball00:15
gardnanhowever, if it is just a script, you can just put it /usr/local/bin00:15
sweltmanCan anyone help?  I broke unity so there are not any title bars on the windows.  Sounds dumb but I want them back00:15
danielboston26thats fine i only use ubuntu to test linux so i have no important info here00:15
KingFisherWhen I hook my Ubuntu netbook up to power the screen goes black.00:15
KingFisherWhat gives?00:15
aeon-ltdsweltman: alt-f2, metacity --replace00:16
OmegaForteKingFisher, What'd you do?00:16
jdevelThis is a config for dovecot, in the example at http://pastebin.com/rWJSSuXk in the auth default{user = root} does this user really need to be root?  Why not the virtual_mail user?00:16
sweltmanAeon---No can do.  I am not a metacity fan00:16
aeon-ltdsweltman: substitute with 'compiz --replace', if you use that00:16
sweltmanBut thanx00:16
EgyParadoxDatz: Did it work?00:16
OmegaFortesweltman, Those are window managers, not user interfaces dude. You're running one or the other.00:16
OmegaFortesweltman, even in unity.00:17
sweltmanOmega, not perfectly clear on the difference so far.00:17
ioniteszal: did u receive my msg?00:17
KingFisherOmega, I recently changed some power management settings.00:17
OmegaFortesweltman, Metacity and compiz are WINDOW MANAGERS. Unity is a USER INTERFACE.00:17
KingFisherI am messing around with them and I cant figure out what I did.00:17
OmegaForteKingFisher, Well go undo that, and see if it happens again.00:17
sweltmanOmega, I got it now.  So I broke Compiz probably??00:18
szalionite: *sigh* you seem to have one b0rked system there..  anyhoo -> Alt+F2 -> 'gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list' -> enter password -> search for the 'deb' lines that end in "natty main" and "natty universe" & change or remove the country code in the URL00:18
ionitecan anyone help me with this? http://paste.ubuntu.com/658947/00:18

sweltmanomega, script for unity-window-decorator is hung (No unity at the moment)00:22
OmegaFortesweltman, Then restart.00:22
szalionite: wtf..00:23
OmegaFortesweltman, other than that, no other info. I don't use unity because I have a multi-monitor setup and unity hates it.00:23

TonyFisherHello. I'm the guy who asked for the power management advice on my Ubuntu Netbook.00:30
TonyFisherI just logged on to the second account and it works normally but the GUIs have changed in style.00:30
TonyFisherThey all look like something from the late 90s early 2000s00:30
gardnanDatz: kk thanks00:30
Datzgardnan: were there features or something you were looking forward to in the latest versions of emacs?00:30
Datzyou could always manually install00:31
TonyFisherCould this be soemthing bigger than just power management differences/?00:31
gardnanDatz: not really I was just doing some lisp stuff and my windows machine and ubuntu machine were behaving differently00:31
FyonteTonyFisher, What? What is the problem?00:31
TonyFisherFyonte, my ubuntu netbook on the sudo account would go black (the screen) when I put it on battery power00:32
gardnanDatz: but it wasn't the version that was causing it00:32
Datzgardnan: humm, I see00:32
TonyFisherThe other account doesnt have this problem but i just logged back in and the GUi For firefox and Xchat look completely different.00:32
Viking667So. What the heck would be stopping mpd from working???00:32
FyonteTonyFisher, I don't do netbooks, but it does seem like a mode-switch was done, and it lost track of what it was doing.00:32
FyonteTonyFisher, Kinda like Tony Hawk and Sam Fisher did when you made your name. [it is gag. Relax]00:33
FyonteTonyFisher, You are now super spy skateboarder....That would be a sweet tv show..00:33
TonyFisherFyonte, I have been having battery problems before, so could this be the result of that?00:33
FyonteTonyFisher, Probably. Is it still under warranty?00:34
TonyFisherFyonte, I don't think so. I have been having these battery problems on start up for a while now00:34

coz_apollo,   you may want to try the minimal install cd  only 19 megs and installs via t he net  aka  "net install"    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD00:58

jgcampbell300Hello, I am haveing a bit of trouble with my usb external hard drive .. it stores all my music and movies ... and i need to reset the ownership or premmisions of the drive .. when i plug it into a diffrent computer i cant access all of the directories , some of them are owned by root and locked ... i need a way to make it where user of the computer can do everything01:01
jgcampbell300oh im useing ubuntu 11.0401:01
rwwRaggs: by default, yes01:01
Raggsjgcampbell300: chown and chgrp01:02
Raggsrww: strange, it booted to gnome01:02
* Guest13359 hi01:03
jgcampbell300raggs; chmod -R 777 /media/Vol1/01:04
jgcampbell300Raggs, chmod -R 777 /media/Vol1/ will that change all of the premissions of that drive Vol101:04
Raggsjgcampbell300: that would change the permissions01:04
PhaseOmegaForte: ffmpeg > /dev/null 2>&1 worked (thanks #ffmpeg)01:04
jgcampbell300Raggs, cool ... do i need to chgrp to something diffrent ?01:05
Raggsjgcampbell300: add sudo to the beginning01:05
idlemind324jgcampell300 first step would be to find out what your volume is named01:05
idlemind324jgcampell300 something like: ls /media01:05
idlemind324jgcampell300 then run the chmod on that directory01:06
jgcampbell300Raggs, oh ok i see the -R made the changes to all the directories under neath the Vol1 drive01:09
FrettaI am trying to change my IP address, do i do that in: /etc/network/interfaces ?01:11

Viking667Uninstalled mpd, reinstalled mpd, now it works, but only when nothing else has the sound device.01:27
somsipAm I right in thinking installing from 11.04 minimal CD would just give me enough to boot from to console login. So I can build X up from there?01:27
Viking667... which means it got set up to use alsa. Trying to use it with pulseaudio simply doesn't work.01:27

Viking667CaptWho: I did ask you a question, by the way01:32
CaptWhoi dont' even see a numlock key01:32
Viking667First, can you find the Fn key? It should be down beside your Alt or Ctrl key.01:32
CaptWhonormally you'd hold down the fn key to get it to do that01:32
CaptWhoi see the fn key01:33
Viking667Hit it once.01:33
Viking667Then tell me if that lets you type letters now01:33
CaptWhoi hit it once, and i still can't type letters01:33
maumCan someone help me about touch screen?01:33
Viking667Right. Hold it down, and try typing those same keys?01:33
CaptWhothat doesn't seem to change anything01:34
Viking667hm. So something's stuck.01:34
Viking667and you don't see a blue NumLock above any key?01:34
CaptWhoi hold down the function key and hit a O and i still get a 601:34
jrevelesthere should be a little lock with a 9 inside it on your keyborard01:34
jrevelesso press the FN + that key01:35
CaptWhoi see the numlock key01:35
CaptWhoit worked, thanks01:35

lsemplehi I just reinstalled xubuntu 10.04 on my system, is there a way to set which partition the /home folder is after Ubuntu has been reinstalled ???03:19
hylianmrlane, if you really want to gain su access, you can type sudo su, but sudo command password is the usual way to get things done03:19
rwwsudo -i03:19
rwwmouse: Depends on what you mean by trouble. The GNOME 3 builds for released versions of Ubuntu are unstable and unsupported, so in those terms, I'd say "quite a bit".03:19
lsemplemy origional folder is /home,. and I thought I could just reinstall the os, and keep the /home folder which is on the second partition,03:19
lsemplebut the install set the /home folder all on the same partition as the root03:19
mouserww, lol that would explain the mixed reviews.  Thank you.03:20

lsempleor should I reinstall ?03:20
Mike9863How can I make it so that when I attempt to connect to a certain IP address, it will connect to a different one that I specify instead?03:20
somsiplsemple: you will have to boot to livecd, create a new home partition some where else, mount your current /home somewhere, mount the new /home somewhere, copy all from old home to new home, mount current / and edit current /etc/fstab to mnt /home from it's new location03:20
luckysmackdan_, if its encrypted, yea maybe not without some hacking ork nowing the pass.03:20

free99hey all, I'm having an issue where my 11.04 xubuntu client won't correctly mount my encrypted home directory after I logout then back in04:08
free99someone suggested putting "/bin/fusermount -zu "$HOME/.gvfs" 1>/dev/null 2>&1 || true" into my /etc/gdm/PostSession/Default file...04:08
free99but others are saying it doesn't work. Any ideas?04:09
cjs_I have a laptop that's currently dual-boot (10.04 and XP). I'd like to run my XP partition in a KVM instance; is there a way to do that? Setting the instance's block storage device to /dev/sda gets me a grub menu, but when I boot Windows from that it fails with "A disk read error occured. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del to restart."04:12
merlotmmm fishbones04:12
cjs_Or would this be better asked on the #kvm channel?04:12
semi-afkcjs_: i think KVM isn't for WINXP04:14
cjs_semi-afk: What do you mean? It's a hardware-emulating VM: it should run anything.04:15
dlicjs_, VM means virtual machine, don't think you can point the hard drive to a real /dev/sda04:15
free99sorry to bump, but... anyone have any suggestions for dealing with the gvfs error I'm having with my encrypted home directory?04:16
cjs_dli: I don't see why it should make a difference. /dev/sda is simply a long list of bytes that can be read or written in block size chunks. Just like a file, or /dev/sda1, or whatever.04:16
dlicjs_, by default, VM has no access to any real hardware,everything provided from software virtualization04:17
MexibuntuAfter a recent update of my Ubuntu 11.04 system, the flash plugin is now extremly slow and ineffective. Do any other users experience the same issue ? (using chromium here)04:17
jbhewittMexibuntu - chrome doesn't use the flash plugin04:18
jbhewittit uses it's own implementation04:18
dlicjs_, in other words, the /dev/sda seen by OS in virtual machine has no relation with /dev/sda in the host OS04:18
rwwjbhewitt: Chrome, yes. Mexibuntu said Chromium.04:19
jbhewittrww and with that i bow out04:19
=== RA_drc_ is now known as RA_drc
Mexibunturww: So chrome uses it's own "internal" plugin and chromium the system one ?04:20
MexibuntuSo either i try to replace the system plugin or give a try to chrome, right ?04:20
rwwMexibuntu: Chromium doesn't include Flash as it's non-free, so I would imagine so.04:21
rww(I don't use Flash, so...)04:21
rwwsorry, clarification: Debian and Ubuntu's chromium packages don't. I don't know if this is true of Chromium upstream, though I imagine it is.04:21
cjs_dli: I am assigning /dev/sda on the host as the source for /dev/sda in the guest, so they should be identical. I.e., if you read a block from /dev/sda in the guest, you should get the exact same data that you'd get if you read it from /dev/sda in the host. Or does it not work that way?04:22
JZApplesIs there a way to change where Evolution stores all it's data and move that to a software RAID array?04:22
Mexibunturww: Thanks for the detailed answer. Is it easy to use an "earlier" package of flash ?04:22

preecheri wanna setup dual boot--my distro's choices are ubuntu of course but the other distro i was planning on installing uses legacy grub---i tried doing this before & after i install the other distro on my empty partition i dont see ubuntu or the choice to boot into ubuntu--is this because they use different grubs?04:25
larieis that right layout?04:26
Braden`I have a network connection (wired), but I cannot browse any websites.  I can ping external sites though04:26
larieBraden`: try nmap that site04:27
larieBraden`: if nmap will say that 80 port of site is closted or filtered04:27
larieBraden`: then problem is on your router/provider network04:27
larieBraden`: like packet filtering/mtu discovery black hole04:28
Braden`nmap is not currently installed.  Cannot install it because of dns issues I reckon04:28
Braden`How do I check my dns servers?04:29

larieBraden`: nano /etc/resolv.conf04:30
larieBraden`: you need to edit that by hand if you do not use dhcp04:31

JZApplesProbably a dumb question, but in /dev/sda, does the sd stand for anything specific?  I assume dev is device and a, b, c1, c2, etc... is the ATA port/drive, but what is sd?04:34
th0rJZApples: I think it stands for sata. The ide drives I believe are identified as hda, hdb, etc04:35
Blue1JZApples: good question04:35
LasersJZApples: http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Flash-Memory-HOWTO/basics.html -- SCSI disk -- See 6.204:35
JZApplesth0r, that makes sense.  The letters don't really matter right?  For some reason my OS drive got initalized as /dev/sdb and my storage RAID array got marked as /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2.  That's not going to hurt anything is it?04:37
Braden`That fixed it04:37
Braden`Thank you!04:37
cjs_dli: Yes, I've got that, more or less. I'm using virt-manager, but it runs kvm with "-boot c -drive file=/dev/sda,if=ide,index=0,boot=on,format=raw" among other options.04:37
th0rJZApples: I don't think it will hurt anything. So long as the designations do not change from one boot to another it should be OK.04:37
dlicjs_, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KVM/Directly04:38
dlicjs_, it says use the option with care04:39
JZApplesth0r, they shouldn't change, but i don't actually have them listed in fstab.  Is that something I want to make sure and configure?04:39

JZApplesth0r,  I really think I should look into setting everything up in there.  Any idea what /dev/md0 stands for then?  It's a software RAID array that I have setup by following directions online.  They called it md0 and I'm just curious if you knew.04:46

JZApplesActionParsnip, I was still pretty green around the horns when I installed Ubuntu 11.04 a couple weeks ago.  I have since learned much.  I'm pretty sure my fstab config isn't setup properly.  Would you be willing to walk me through setting this up or would that take up too much of your time?  I can paste the info currently in fstab and give you a rundown of my hardware setup if you want.06:07

resc_user_2169ive used rescatux to reinstall grub but every time it ends up not completing06:20
luckysmackActionParsnip, ive had issues before on bood stating that the drive wasnt present so i had to go to recovery mode to remove the entries. but i also think that my have been in mtab. so if i put the normal entry in fstab with the desired settings it will just ignore it if its not there?06:20

resc_user_2169@csdserver  any ideas at all?06:32
lucky711xwhen booting ubuntu 11.04 install cd i can get passed the icons of what looks like is a "card of ram equals a person with a circle around it"? what is this and what does it mean?06:32
jussicorinth: does it give an error? does wine crash or spotify crash?06:33
jussicorinth: and is it a new install of wine?  have you run winecfg yet?06:33
corinthjussi, I think it's Spotify. Spotify asks me to send a crash report afterward. Yes, and yes I did. This is a fresh install of Ubuntu.06:33
corinthTo clarify: It asks me to send a crash report, *after* I restart it.06:34
csdserverwhat is the error exactly?  does it halt your system and give you any message?06:34
jussicorinth: hrm, if its spotify crashing there isnt much we can do, I'd send the crash report and see what they say. Also, try running it from the commandline and see if theres anything informative from there06:34
corinthcsdserver, No error given. Spotify starts up, I log in, it looks as though it starts to load a page or something, and BOOM. Crashes.06:35
lucky711xdoes anyone know what the "RAM = circle around a person" icon means on boot of an Ubuntu 11.04 desktop i386 install cd?06:36

Laserslucky711x: You have a keen eye.06:48
dr_willisvarun,  if you used wubi. you remove  the install same as you would remove any other application in wndows. via the windows add/remove programs tool in the control panel area.06:48
lucky711xIdleOne, fine i wont to it again, I had no intentions of hurt people's feelings, I didn't realize people were so sensitive in here06:49
dr_willisvarun,  so you have 2 wubi installs on a single machine?06:49
varunok then it wasnt wubi06:49
dr_willisI wouldent do wubi at all.. If you did a normal install. then you just delete the partitions. or tell the installer to install over them.06:49
glebihandr_willis, he already deleted the partition06:51
sally_hello all!06:52
glebihanvarun, run "sudo update-grub"06:52

sally_does anyone know how to enable wifi in ubuntu netbook?06:52
varundr_willis, i deleted the partition but it is still showing ubuntu 9 as an option when i reboot, though it gives an error on selecting the option06:52
sally_I'm using an aspire one netbook and I'm switching the switch in the front, but no go06:52
lucky711xsally_, what kind of netbook?06:52
dr_willisvarun,  this is the GRUB menu you are seeing? or the windows bootloader menu?06:52
lucky711xsally_, what does it say when you click the two computers in the top right corner? do you see networks or your wifi card at least?06:53
sally_lucky711x: an acer aspire one06:53
varundr_willis, grub menu06:53
dr_willissally_,  on some of theose netbooks. the front switch dosent work. Or dosent work right. It may need some tweaks to get it going. Ivehad to boot to windows, turn on wireless. then leave it on.. and never touch the switch while in linux06:53
dr_willisvarun,  so you still have a Linux install on it then? and its showing  Ubuntu 9, and 10 and windows?06:54
sally_dr_willis: unfortunately, I don't have dual boot on this computer06:54
lucky711xsally_, you may have issues with hibernating or going to sleep with WIFI on and coming back and not able to enable it06:54
sally_lucky711x:  in the top right corner it has enable networking checked but I can't highly enable wireless to get it going06:55
varundr_willis, yes yes06:55
dr_willisvarun,  double check the partitions, nbe sure you deleted the ones fro the other linux install,. and rerun update-grub - it should auto remove any invalid entries.06:55
varunk i'll try06:56
lucky711xsally_, private message me06:56
sally_i think dr_willis is right.  The card might not be coming on at the switch.  that's a bummer.06:56

yagoomaahes, it's a topic related to "locales" -- anything related to $LANG, and character encodings->"input" and "output display"08:09
ElTimoYcarene: Everything works fine with compositing disabled, and compiz actually worked great on Lucid.08:09

yagoohellyeah, check the apache conf..08:10
yagoohellyeah, /var/www is defined in there somewhere..08:10
YcareneElTimo - unless your X server has compositing turned off for some strange reason.08:11

ionutPhow can i enable A2DP source service in blueman?08:12
ElTimoYcarene: Xrender compositing works just dandily, but it's slow as molasses.08:13
theadminhellyeah: You should not search with a .08:13
Ycareneeltimo - could be doing it in software08:13
theadminhellyeah: grep -r '/var/www' /etc/apache2/08:13
yagoomaahes, did u try looking with aptitude or synaptic ? (xkb keyword?)08:13
maahesyagoo~> its already installed. Synaptic wouldn't tell me anything useful about a particular file which is not a program package in itself08:14
ElTimoYcarene: I thought xrender was entirely software?08:14
yagoomaahes, what is installed?08:14
maahesfound it, nevermind08:14
yagoomaa_pan, dpkg -L <packagename>|grep bin08:14
maahesyagoo~> It's a keyboard profile. they're files installed under /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/ not a program, not something I wanted to change, just a file I wanted to edit.08:15
syntaxx hi i am on quad display and i ran seperate X on each display due to bad performance on xinerama. But i am wondering if its possible to ran a same entity on each seperate X session rather than ran that application on where it ran the first session?08:15
yagoomaahes, there's probably tools so that you can have it in ~08:15
yagoomaahes, i believe theres'an xkb command or something for X resources08:16

yagoomaahes, ckbcomp doesn't do ?08:17
yagoo(there's also manpage loadkeys)08:18
yagoomaahes, you should avoid to editing system wide files.. you should ask #xorg .. things should be easier today :)08:18
maahesyagoo it wouldn't have told me what I wanted to know because I was looking for a file called "neo2" neo2 evidently is a sub-portion of the de layout08:19
maahesyagoo~> I'm copying it, editing it locally and then plugging it back in as my own custom mapping.08:19

AraneidaeTetsuo55, definitely looks like a line ending issue: your sources are CRLF endings, and the patch file is in Unix format09:22
Tetsuo55how to fix?09:23
goddardJon--: can your wifi act as an ap?09:23
yagooapt-cache search dos2unix09:23

Jon--goddard, hold on09:25
AraneidaeTetsuo55, there might be an option on patch, otherwise you can convert all your sources by running dos2unix on them09:25
yagooiceroot, what about on X.. i'm guessing their x counterparts..09:25

goddardJon--: what driver?09:26
yagooiceroot, would it show the flow of text with %CRLF escapes or do the new line?09:26
AraneidaeTetsuo55, if I run `find -type f -exec dos2unix {} \;` the patch then applies (except for one failed hunk), but that's a bit drastic09:26

AraneidaeMorgz, I did say it wasn't what he wanted09:50
ActionParsnipHot2Trot: you can use an alias, it will mean mplayer ALWAYS uses the option09:50
yagooMorgz, well u'll ^ (lose files if filenames are the same)09:50
AraneidaeMorgz, you're better off with `cp -a`09:50
bullgard6iceroot: A device designator, or a filename or what?09:50
Tetsuo55Araneidae: i found the problem, the zip file was using windows line endings, if i do a svn checkout everything should apply correctly09:50
AraneidaeTetsuo55, that's good, is what I thought09:51
icerootbullgard6: everything on linux is a file09:51
icerootbullgard6: but yes its a device designator09:51
AraneidaeThanks for getting back09:51
ActionParsnipHot2Trot: in ~/.bashrc    you can add     alias mplayer='mplayer -fs'09:51

bullgard6iceroot: How can a device designator write a message on thevirtual console?09:52
AraneidaeMorgz, Then you do want my command, it's just the first part is the source directory09:52
MorgzAraneidae - sorry terrible at explaining stuff. cp -a or cp -dR didn't do it.09:52
yagooMorgz, i believe u can flatten it out with rsync09:52
yagooMorgz, rsync is a lazy man's tool imho09:52
icerootbullgard6: the kernel is writing that message09:52
lotuspsychjeanyone knows where to edit gnome-settings-deamon to prevent resetting gnome theme to default?09:52
AraneidaeMorgz, let me be more clear.  Let /source/dir be the name of the directory you want to flatten, /target/dir where you want to put everything.09:53
yagooMorgz, if u want to be sure u don't overwrite files.. u can use tee09:53
yagooMorgz, like->rsync <properstuff> | tee myoutput.txt09:53
Nimeismy mistake09:53
AraneidaeMorgz, then `find /target/dir -type f -exec cp {} /target/dir \;` should work (without the ``)09:53
AraneidaeMorgz, then `find /source/dir -type f -exec cp {} /target/dir \;` should work (without the ``)09:53
bullgard6iceroot: Yes. Probably in particular the MMC kernel subsystem. But what program or routine of the kernel?09:54
Araneidaeyagoo, if you're using xargs then you *do* need to worry about shell quoting (or use -print0 etc)09:54
icerootbullgard6: ##linux09:54
icerootbullgard6: guess that is to detailed for #ubuntu09:54
AraneidaeWhat's the difference between a # and a ## channel?09:55

yagooMorgz, then do compare this number to ur target dir.. u can be sure if any filenames were overwritten..09:58
AraneidaeMorgz, if your current directory is /target/dir then you can put . instead of /target/dir09:58
Araneidaeyagoo, Morgz wanted to flatten everything, so overwriting will be part of the story09:58
yagooI take that as sarcastically.. i'll let that one pass09:59
lotuspsychjedoes regular updates fixes bugs too?09:59
yagooMorgz, what works for you that's good.. keep things professional and clean..10:00

bazhangnixusr, from what10:15
ActionParsnipchenthu: I have the same video chip, install nvidia-current and it will run (as long as your monitor correctly reports EDID). If it doesn't give EDID then run:  sudo nvidia-xconfig    and reboot10:16
bazhangchenthu, the package is unity-2d if thats what you want10:16
chenthuActionParsnip: i have unity instaled but still gnome is active...what do i have to do10:16
ActionParsnipchenthu: you can do anything in the liveOS which you can do in an installed OS except reboot. It just uses a RAM drive for storage10:16
chenthubazhang: No i wanna try unity 3d10:17

NobberNoob question: My audio seems to lack bass (in Natty 11.04) any ideas how to change this?10:21
ActionParsnipamt0101: press ALT+f210:22
ActionParsnipNobber: there is a pulse equalizer in a PPA you can tweak it that way10:22
Nonickshow can I open a program with notepad as a root?10:22
TBotNikbazhang: So any other great ideas?10:22
ActionParsnipNobber: http://exploreubuntu.wordpress.com/2010/04/18/equalizer-for-pulse-audio/10:22
ActionParsnipNonicks: gksudo gedit /path/to/file10:23
ActionParsnipNonicks: notepad is for windows ;)10:23
Nonicks-.- it is? I saw it there in .. wait10:24
NonicksOh man -.-10:24
yagookyle_, use pastebin if u want to continue u can here..10:24
NonicksWell anyway thanks10:24
ionitecan i upgrade from my netbook remix to either XFCE or KDE?10:24
bazhangionite, sure10:24
ionitebazhang: how do i go about?10:25
bazhangionite, what version currently10:25
nqshi peeps.  I'm trying to create a 3+1 raid 10 device in ubutu server (inside a VM)  I create the raid device with the installer, but once created I don't see the device.  how can I access it?10:25
bazhangionite, 10.10?10:25
TBotNikbazhang: These have to be held in a file somewhere.  I wish I knew where cus I'd delete them.  Anyone out there have an Ideas of where these get stored?10:26
OmegaFortenqs, Are you trying to create a HAL layer, or are you making a virtual raid in the vm...10:26
chenthuActionParsnip: i just realised my unity is running but i dont have a dock like side bar like shown in the ubunt official video10:26
ActionParsnipionite: sure just install the DE you desire10:27
ionitebazhang: yep10:27
bazhangionite, upgrade to 11.04, install the xubuntu-desktop / kubuntu-desktop package10:27
ActionParsnipchenthu: if you run:  ccsm   (you may need to install compizconfig-settings-manager)10:27
ActionParsnipchenthu: you can enable the unity plugin10:27
bazhangionite, then if you wish to remove gnome, use the purekde or purexfce link10:27
chenthuActionParsnip: ok10:27
bazhang!purekde > ionite10:27
ubottuionite, please see my private message10:27
bazhang!purexfce | ionite10:28
ubottuionite: If you want to remove all !KDE and !Gnome packages and have a default !Xubuntu system follow the instructions here « http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purexfce »10:28
makarayagoo: for the record, jigdo seems to be pretty pointless. it has downloaded over 700mb of updates and its still going so there's really no added efficiency10:28
iRBiNiXhello. Have anybody mail on .edu???10:28
bazhangiRBiNiX, how is that on topic for here10:28
OmegaFortemakara, What is your issue?10:28
nqsOmegaForte: i'm not sure.  trying to learn raid, i heard ubuntu is easier.  so far that is false.   but I have 1 64mb /boot device and 4 756mb sas raid devices.  I'd expect to see the raid device so i can create partitions within it, yet I onl[y see the physical devices.  when I try to continue it tells me i don't have a root file system10:29
merfso what is the topic10:29
ionitebazhang: ActionParsnip: which is better for my atom 1.6ghz? XFCE or KDE?10:29
bazhangmerf, try /topic10:30
OmegaFortenqs, Raid requires hardware. If you're making an LVS system, you're gonna have to do it from OUTSIDE of the virtual machine, and it will only be visible in Linux.10:30
bazhangionite, your choice try them or check out screenshots, please dont poll here10:30
makaraOmegaForte: i want latest version of natty because the original 11.04 release has a bug that prevents my usb modem from connecting10:30
OmegaFortemakara, You done any research about the modem and current support?10:30
bazhangionite, both will work fine with that system.10:31
TBotNikbazhang: Even have a network restart script but not helping.  Sometimes I get 1/2 way there then it screws me again.  There are 2 extra false connections [ifupdown (eth2) and ifupdown (wlan0)] showing under "wired" connections in Network Manager, but can not delete them. I think there is another place in gnome or gconf that is holding these and that is where the problem is coming from, these conflict with the real eth2 and wlan0 settings.10:31
chenthuActionParsnip: it worked thanks... :)10:32
OmegaFortenqs, and you don't make a raid array inside an operating system. You do it from the raid controller's firmware during boot, or with their specific mananger inside a supported operatic system.10:32
ionitebazhang: work fine is one matter. optimal performance is another10:32
makarathe modem works fine on an updated 11.04 64bit. i'm using it now to chat through lucid lynx10:32
nqsOmegaForte: ok, maybe i'm confused.  are you saying that mdadm is dependent on having a hardwore controller?10:32
makarabut when i install fresh, obviously i can't get the updates for 11.04 without a connection10:32
makara800mb. is this going to end sometime or should I just give up. mobile broadband is extremely expensive in my country10:33
OmegaFortenqs, All raid, except LVS is hardware, home skillet. mdadm controls software raid. Something you won't get performance out of. Raid controllers have specific hardware to make them actually do their job. Doing things over software can slow things down far more than you'd expect.10:34
OmegaFortemakara, Find a physical line or some wifi until it's done.10:34
nqsOmegaForte: i may be assuming that the base system can be isntalled to a mdadm device.  is this incorrect?10:35
makarayeah. damn what a waste10:35
makaracan you comment on jigdo though?10:35
ActionParsnipchenthu: np man10:35
OmegaFortenqs, I wouldn't do it. Software raid doesn't reflect performance, and in some cases, stability. Raid in it's own is to either gain SPEED in the absense of lifetime, or the gain of RELIABILITY in the absense of speed. No point in software raid unless you're just spanning.10:36
OmegaFortemakara, You talking to me? If you are, I don't know what that is.10:36
TBotNikAll: Anyone else have ideas on how I fix my WiFi?10:36
ActionParsnipTBotNik: whats up with it?10:37
TBotNikActionParsnip: Can't get my WiFi settings to stick tonight.  Box had bad shutdown and now I have crap. Even have a network restart script but not helping.  Sometimes I get 1/2 way there then it screws me again.  There are 2 extra false connections [ifupdown (eth2) and ifupdown (wlan0)] showing under "wired" connections in Network Manager, but can not delete them. I think there is another place in gnome or gconf that is holding these and th10:37
nqsOmegaForte: i use hardvare raid in my old file server.  i'll agree it's better in most cases, but in my case, the controller is so old if it dies, assuming i could find another (ok, i do have 2 spares...) the softwore to access it is no longer avadiable.   software raid would solve that problem10:37
spexiHi! I have Ati Radeon HD3850 with two dvi ports. Other port has Samsung Syncmaster T240 and other port has ViewSonic VG1921wm. Samsung works fine but ViewSonic has a blank screen.10:38
spexiWith having ViewSonic plugged in, Ubuntu 11.04 Live-CD boots over 10 minutes, without the monitor the boot lasts about two minutes or less.10:38
OmegaFortenqs, with a huge trade-off of the file system not being transplantable, re-scalable or performing within normal disk standards, let alone with a controller.10:38
spexiAll settings with monitors are freezing, for example changing resolution to Samsung monitor and applying it takes 2-3 minutes and mouse is not moving.10:38
yagoomakara, u can try keeping the update .debs by setting up options in apt.conf-- then copy all those .debs from /var/cache/apt/archives to other machines10:38
bahamashi. are there any issues with the 64-bit ubuntu? i don't have any issues with it myself. i'm just asking because i'm thinking of installing it to be able to use more RAM10:38
spexiIs the problem with ViewSonic and Ubuntu (there's no problems with the monitor when using Windows), or just having dual screen with these monitors or this display adapter is causing problems?10:38
bahamasalso, on the download page the 32 bit version is recommended10:38
MrCoffeeTVbahamas: I have run the 64 bit version on an AMD Sempron, and no issues.10:39
MrCoffeeTVA bit slow, though.10:39
TBotNikActionParsnip: So what do you think?10:39
yagoomakara, eg: u can use the --download-only option and then backup the .debs from the /var/cache/apt/archives10:39
bahamasMrCoffeeTV: i have an i510:39
OmegaFortespexi, Sounds like you're having a UI related issue. I work best on those. Do you use Unity?10:39
ActionParsnipTBotNik: can you give the output of:  sudo lshw -C network; lsb_release -a; lsmod       Thanks10:39
MrCoffeeTVYou should be good to go, bahamas10:39
spexiOmegaForte: Yes, I'm using Unity10:40
MrCoffeeTVI mean, that i5 should bat KDE 4.7 around like a toy.10:40
spexiand now with the livecd10:40
nqsOmegaForte: as an aside, are you familiar at all with raidZ on linux?  i'm trying to emulate a system i'm considering with 2 raid arrays, and for the second i'm trying to decide between raid 5, raid 6 and raid z10:40
spexihaven't installed yet10:40
spexijust because if these two monitors won't work..10:40
OmegaFortespexi, It's not the monitor's fault. It's unity's fault. Unity was designed for a single monitor set up and touch screens.10:40
bahamasMrCoffeeTV: if i already have the 32-bit one, can i somehow make the switch or do i need to reformat and install?10:40
OmegaFortenqs, I just do hardware raid man. I'm not going to risk drives on sofware raid.10:40
nqsOmegaForte: I should note the OS most likely won't be ubuntu, nor debian based10:41
OmegaFortenqs, Then you're out of my spectrum in distro's too.10:41
MrCoffeeTVbahamas: You will most likely have to backup and reformat.10:41
spexiCould I switch Unity to old menu style?10:41
ActionParsnipspexi: log in to Ubuntu Classic10:41
bahamasMrCoffeeTV: i see. thanks for the info10:41
MrCoffeeTVbahamas: You would need to do a clean install, yes.  You should be able to back up your home directory, then put that on the new 64 bit version.  I know, it's a headache.10:42
OmegaFortespexi, You sure can! Simple as logging out and looking at the bottom of the x 0 monitor, and selecting "Ubuntu Classic" from the menu that holds Unity10:42
kyle_yagoo: Thanks for your help. but i just didn't see that i was editing a ftab file instead of FSTAB.  I have now added to correct file and it's working but without write. But i think i'll leave it for now and try myself again. I think if you have to speak to me again your loose all your hair, or you just won't .  Bu thanks anyway...10:42
OmegaFortekyle_, What are you having issues with?10:42
spexiOmegaForte: I haven't installed anything yet, just running on livecd. So is there selection with the installation that I can use Ubuntu classic as default10:42
nqsOmegaForte: like I said, i only tried it because every one said it was fast and easy.   it's taken me about 4x longer to get to this point as it does to do a complete gentoo install10:42
Joe6668anyone in here knowledaeable in networking ?10:43
bahamasMrCoffeeTV: fortunately, i don't have much on it because i just installed it. the greater headache is creating a bootable USB and then setting up the wireless. i spent quite some time yesterday making it work10:43
bahamasi hope that solution is cross-platform, so i can replicate it on the 64-bit version10:43
kyle_OmegaForte: Got following line in FSTAB file and it works. Just don't have write access to share.10:43
OmegaFortenqs, That's why hardware exists to do this job. No software is faster.10:43
kyle_//cca2/users/Staff/Kyle.Wadman /media/Profile cifs user=kyle.wadman,password=10:43
nbest Hello.  A lot of times when I try to copy text from a web page I get a lot of things like "\u2019s" inserted in it.  Can anyone tell me why this is and what I can do about it?10:43
OmegaFortekyle_, Add rw past the password section.10:44
OmegaFortespexi, Yeah, you'll just have to do the same thing I told you.10:44
OmegaFortekyle_, And don't forget your 0 0's.10:44
bahamasnbest: are you copying the raw html?10:44
spexi thanks :)10:44
kyle_OmegaForte: so password=***,rw10:44
yagoonbest, where's the past egoing?10:44
OmegaFortekyle_, Should work just fine.10:44
nqsOmegaForte: well, thanks for the help10:44
bahamasnbest: that's unicode what you're seeing10:44
TBotNikActionParsnip: PB at: http://pastebin.com/ZLsDa9MP10:44
nbest now copying from the web page that's displayed bahamas10:44
oCeanJoe6668: maybe try ##networking channel10:45
yagoonbest, and the target window?10:45
nbest  yagoo i paste the text into a screen reader10:45
yagoonbest, what's the application?10:45
nbest  readplease10:45
nbest i use it on wine10:45
kyle_OmegaForte: nope, i did try that, but when i right click I don't get create folder etc...10:45
yagoonbest, you honest about that?10:45
yagoonbest, wine is not supported on any linux channel man..10:45
nbest  bahamas , so if i changed my web page encoding it mifght fix it?10:45
bahamasnbest: if you paste it anywhere else, do you still see those characters?10:45
OmegaFortekyle_, Okay, then it seems like it's a permissions issue. Lemme look up cifs.10:45
nbest i will check to see if i see it elsewhere... one sec..10:46
kyle_OmegaForte: thanks10:46
spexiHow can I list all network computers in command line? I have one Ubuntu machine but it's not shown on the network window, there's only Windows network. I can still connect to that computer with IP address.10:47
OmegaFortekyle_, Does this apply to you? http://lists.samba.org/archive/linux-cifs-client/2006-November/001590.html10:47
nbest oh, pasting it in gedit i don't get them there10:47
nbest  so i guess it's a wine issue10:47
yagoospexi, smbclient -L <ip>/host10:47
spexiIt would be nice just connect to that computer by name10:47
spexiok thanks10:47
TBotNikActionParsnip: Hope you understand that PB is data from current liveCD boot, not from my HDD boot, where the problem is.  Confused don't be, can't get on if wlan0 is down and it auto configs and comes up on liveCD.10:48
Dori922hey bro's10:48
kyle_OmegaForte: reading it now10:48
yagoospexi, apt-cache search samba (there's smbtree and smbclient)10:48
yagoospexi, there's even gui ones ..10:48
nbest  well thanks anyway yagoo and bahamas10:48
TBotNikDori922: Hey back10:48
bahamasnbest: yw10:48
cyphahow can I run synaptic as root in one line?10:48
dr_williscypha,  gksudo synaptic10:49
MrCoffeeTVWell, I'm off to get some rest.10:49
cyphaso I can create a menu entry for it10:49
MrCoffeeTVGot a good install done tonight, so now have the use of two computers.  Nice.  Take care.10:49
Dori922i want to set up ubuntu so it automatically enter a cmd line command at each log in, what do i need to do to do this? :) just point me in the right direction10:49
cyphadr_willis: you are the man10:49
TBotNikcypha: sure10:49
Dori922ive no gui btw10:49
dr_williscypha,  linux/ubuntu fundamentals.10:49
yagoospexi, what do u mean your ubuntu machine not being shown on the network window? (trying to use nmbd ?)10:49
dr_willisDori922,  for a user they have their own .bashrc and .profile10:50
kyle_OmegaForte: my password in ubuntu and windows are the same.  The windows PC is a Windows 2008 R2 Server (Domain)10:50
dr_willisDori922,  for sysem wide stuff befor any logins. heres  /etc/rc.local10:50
OmegaFortekyle_, It's still a cifs share.10:50
spexiyagoo: When navigating to Places-Network10:50
spexithat computer is not listed there10:50
Dori922dr_willis:  i love you |<-----------------------------this-------------------------------->| much :)10:50
cyphadr_willis: well, how about modifying the libnotify files?10:51
spexiThat computer has this irssi which I'm using right now, so I can connect to that computer with IP, no probs10:51
ActionParsnipTBotNik: how is the installed OS different?10:51
kyle_OmegaForte:OK, so what do i need to add, or is it listed on the url?10:51
cyphawhere are those found so I can alter things?10:51
TBotNikDori922: Write a small script to call "terminal" and go to "System" + "Preferences" + "Startup Applications" and add your script there.10:51
yagoospexi, u can use the nmbd daemon (this is part of the samba package)10:51
dr_willisspexi,  i havce constant issues with shares/machines not gettting seen . windows, linux, and so on. I just basically enter the actual server up/share name and they come right up. then i bookmark them10:51
spexijust wondering that should it be listed there10:51
yagoospexi, use swat.. it's easier to set things up.. (apt-get install swat)10:51
ActionParsnipTBotNik: there is no lshw output there dude10:51
dr_willisspexi,  so in the file mnager you can enter an address. (hit ctrl-l)  enter.. smb://ip.of.the.server/sharename10:51
dr_willissame thing can work in windows.10:51
OmegaFortekyle_, I don't know. I just googled your issue, and came to this. It looks like adding noperm to the args section of the mount would solve your issues...But I don't know.10:52
yagoospexi, then url:localhost:601 if i'm correct or its another port (u use firefox)10:52
spexihave to try those things10:52
ActionParsnipdr_willis: even with the 'smb:' prefix?10:52
OmegaFortekyle_, All of my samba stuff is RW/usr out of the box.10:52
yagoospexi, it's port 901..10:52
dr_willistheres just somthing very weird going on with share browsing.. seems to get worse with each new release of windows/samba.  My "Boxee' box sees EVERYTHING.. the windows pcs tend to see each other.. got one tha tonly sees itself...10:52
endgamerHi folks <waves>10:53
spexiyagoo, ok thanks10:53
Dori922thanks TBotNik  :P10:53
dr_willisfor windows you dont use the smb:  you just use their \\ or // thangs10:53
yagoospexi, so once swat is started.. u can do http://localhost:901 .. it not then
kyle_OmegaForte: top man. It's done10:53
TBotNikActionParsnip: Exact same os, just different config settings and I re-edit all 5 files and they are all correct.  It is the thing, that I can not find that is holding those 2 extra false "wired" connects that is beating me, I know it.10:53
ActionParsnipTBotNik: could remove network manager and install wicd10:53
endgamerI've got an odd issue in Lucid if anyone can help...just installed Fluxbox but when I go to switch sessions I find I have no sessions list at login :) Anything that might cause that to not display?10:53
OmegaFortekyle_, Did it solve your issue?10:53
kyle_OmegaForte: If my ubuntu password was not the same as windows, Would it not work or something??  --- Yes it seems to be working fine..10:54
dr_willisendgamer,  you may need to restrt the gdm service. "sudo service gdm restart"10:54
OmegaFortekyle_, That's not the issue...The issue would be that the unix/linux permissions are not compatable with NTFS/CIFS permissions.10:54
ActionParsnipkyle_: run:  sudo smbpasswd -a $USER    set the sambe password and you can authenticate as that user10:54
endgamerdr_willis, I've actually restarted the whole system and it doesn't appear...10:54
yagoonone of u have experience logging in to a Windows Domain from linux..10:55
yagoohis machine is a Windows Domain computer he already said so much earlier..10:55
dr_willisendgamer,  see if theres one in /usr/share/xsessions, you could also try a 'sudo updatedb' 'locate fluxbox.desktop'   Could be the fb packager dident include one.10:56
endgamerdr_willis Ah, thankyou...I take it the sessions menu will only appear if there are other options set up then?10:56
dr_willisendgamer,  yep. gdm looks in that location and perhaps a few others for the sessiopns to show.10:57
lotuspsychjedr_willis: any idea to colortail -f snort logs instead of syslog1.log?10:57
endgamerdr_willis,  will check that out, cheers10:57
dr_williseasy to make your own. I just noticed I got a fluxbox.desktop session here for KDM. even tho i dont have flxbox installed.10:57
dr_willisendgamer,  here it is.... pastebinit /usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/sessions/fluxbox.desktop10:58
TBotNikActionParsnip: Under the liveCD boot there is only the "Auto eth0" under "Wired" and "Wireless" is showing only the current active "Auto <myssid>" profile.  When the machine boots under HDD the wired NIC does not come up as eth0 but as eth2 and sometime the "Auto eth2" shows under the "Wired" tab and sometime it does not, but always the Network Manager panel pop-up shows both Wired and Wireless as "not managed".10:58
endgamerdr_willis , hmm...seems there's a fluxbox.desktop in xsessions, and a KDE one...10:59
chenthuhas anyone ever successfully customized a login screen? cause i have been try for the past 48 hrs but in vain... :)11:00
dr_willischenthu,  you can change the gdm walpaper and font, and a few other slight tweaks.. but thats about it.11:00
TBotNikActionParsnip: That is why I went to the nm-system-settings.conf file and change the setting to "true".  Wlan0 came up for a while, and when I kept working on it to get it right, it went down and never came back up.  Nothing wrong with the card, service, etc.  Running on that now via liveCD, so all in the settings.11:00
usalabshi everyone, seeing that I have an account on the ubuntu forum,but still not being able to post, there,,,, I have a real problem after installing security updates which included, samba and winbind, and now I can't access any work groups on my local network, where as I have always done so before the updates11:01
chenthudr_willis:  hmmm....but i heared linux is completely customizable ?...cant customize login screen?11:02
dr_willischenthu,  You can customize it by replaceing it.. if you wanted to.. as i just said theres SOME things you can change on it.. but gdm2 is not as themeable as the old gdm.. lookit here....11:02
ActionParsnipchenthu: I know how to change the wallpaper and the colour of the login box11:02
dr_willistips on tewaking GDM look (above)11:02
endgamerdr_willis is there somewhere the session might be forced to gdm?11:03
ActionParsnipTBotNik: not sure then. Could read through:  dmesg | tail     to see what's going on11:03

chenthuActionParsnip: thank you11:03
TBotNikActionParsnip: I sure want a word with the designers of NetworkManager and the whole networking suite.  the "Network Connections" does not have a way to reset, force, whatever on any connection and not being able to delete these 2 false one, is driving me crazy.  Also "Network Tools" is not Network Tools but just Network Monitor and there is no tools to it, just check what your status is.11:03

ActionParsnipraven: ssh -X username@server     openssh-server enables X forwarding by default. Assuming you have an X server on teh client (default in Ubuntu destops) the app will show in the client system if you run any graphical app. Not tried 3D stuff though. Have a try11:06

AegisXHi guys. I'm finding my laptop's touchpad is way too sensitive on Ubuntu. It's almost as if the heat from my hands moves the mouse randomly, making it click here and there. Do you know of a way to mitigate this?11:08
usalabsanyone got any ideas on how I can get nautilus to show the workgroups after the recent security updates of Lucid LTS?11:08
bullgard4_AegisX: Please describe the heat effect more carefully.11:09
ActionParsnipraven: yes, run a graphical app11:10
yagoochentu, it may be in the menu if not.. try "apropos gdmsetup" or apt-cache search greeter .. install the package and look in menu (i believe it would be in system/administration section)11:10
nbest can anyone recommend a good macro program for ubuntu?11:10
ActionParsnipraven: from the terminal11:10
ActionParsnipnbest: macro in what way?11:10
Viking667ActionParsnip: ah huh. How does that modify the /etc/alternatives/mozilla-libjava.so plugin?11:10
bullgard4_usalabs: What workgroups?11:10
yagoonbest, for accessibility? /firefox?11:10
AegisXbullgard4_: So when I type, my palm hovers over the touchpad. I find that as I type, every now and then the mouse will have moved, or clicked somewhere inadvertently (tap to click).11:10
usalabsbullgard4_ the internal network workgroup11:11
nbest i want a script to send the keystrokes "ctrl-c" then switch to another app then paste the text in11:11
nbest  starting in firefox11:11
AegisXbullgard4_: However, I'm fairly certain that there is no (or at least, minimal) contact between my palm and touchpad.11:11
ActionParsnipViking667: not sure, let me search11:11
Tias____Wie gehts?11:11
AegisXbullgard4_: I have the "disable touchpad when typing" feature enabled under mouse settings, but it doesn't seem to help too much.11:12

ravenActionParsnip, ok sry. i am trying to run xbmc on one machine (performance) and need to display that on another (slower) machine. softwarerendering also gives me only a black window via vnc and ssh -X gives me opengl missing error11:12
TBotNikActionParsnip: Looking at that ddclient file now!11:12
Viking667... and where does that point to on your system?11:12
ActionParsnipTBotNik: looks like a good place to hunt11:13
Viking667Because on my system, it still points to the openjdk plugin11:13
nbest i was using autohotkey in windows and am looking for something similar on ubuntu.. i've tried a couple that were recommended from a search but non seem to work very well11:13
ActionParsnipTBotNik: fwiw I don't have that file11:13
ActionParsnipViking667: http://paste.ubuntu.com/659219/11:14
usalabsI click Places -> Network and it shows the folder for 'Windows Network', I've always been able to open that and it shows all the computers on the "home" workgroup, but since the recent security updates, which included, samba and winbind, nautilus doesn't show the "home" workgroup anymore11:14
ActionParsnipraven: if you want an XBMC remote control, enable the web UI11:14
yagoonbest a hot key? depends what u mean a hotkey.. hotkey to what?11:14
ravenActionParsnip, no remote control11:15
ActionParsnipraven: if you have an Android phone, there is an app made by team xbmc to control it like a DVD menu controller too :)11:15
nankurahey guys, is it safe to add yourself the user to every group on the system, i installed the SLiM login manager on xubuntu, and alot of features dont work because you need to be in the usergroup, gdm doesnt need the groups11:15
Viking667ActionParsnip: thanks.11:15
bullgard4_AegisX: This is no heat effect but rather a capacitive effect. I think in those moments your touchpad is not switched off. Rather, your touchpad is configured for gestures. You either manage to get switched off your touchpad in those moments, or switch off Touchpad gestures.11:15
ravenActionParsnip, i need the (graphics-)computing on a machine and displaying on another11:15
dr_willisnbest,  just saw this at a blog site --->  http://maketecheasier.com/make-autokey-works-in-ubuntu-natty/2011/06/2611:15
ActionParsnipraven: not sure about that11:15
nbest  yahoo a hot key that will send a series of keystrokes and/or mouseclicks that I want it to send11:15
AegisXbullgard4_: I see... how do I correct this?11:15
yagoonbest, i believe there's at least a few that can do that..11:16
nbest  hmm, that looks interesting dr_willis  i'll check that site11:16
dr_willis!info autokey11:16
ubottuautokey (source: autokey): dummy transitional package for autokey-qt. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.71.2-1 (natty), package size 3 kB, installed size 60 kB11:16
nbestyahoo well the couple i've tried didn't use hotkeys, but you had to type comands in terminal11:17
ActionParsnipViking667: the java ppa I gave will no doubt be updated more frequently than the official ones too :)11:17
nbest  that's not convenient at all11:17
TBotNikActionParsnip: PB of file at: http://pastebin.com/kvUhKePL  I added the '' behind login= as they were missing.  Hope that is all it is.  Course still want like crap to delete those 2 other false connects.11:17
nbest  yes, i tried autokey but i coudln't get it to work11:17
dr_willisnbest,  that url mentions its has issues. and gives some fixsa11:17
nbest i'm very noobish though on ubuntu, i was hoping there was a simple easy to use one11:18
nbest :P11:18
Viking667ActionParsnip: I still had to manually symlink the plugin into /etc/alternatives11:18
bullgard4_AegisX: I only have some how-to in German: http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/touchpad11:18
Viking667Isn't there an update-alternatives command that is supposed to handle that?11:18
TBotNikActionParsnip: You think I'm good now?11:18
ActionParsnipnbest: http://www.rrfx.net/2009/07/autokey-keyboard-macros-for-linux.html  has a GUI it seems, you don't need the ppa11:18
ActionParsnipTBotNik: try it is all I can advise11:19
bullgard4_usalabs: Google does not find "internal network workgroup". What do you mean?11:19
ActionParsnipViking667: weird, as long as it's working11:19
Viking667ActionParsnip: thanks for that, by the way. I'm outta here a happy boy.11:19
ActionParsnipViking667: :D11:19
TBotNikBRB reboot underway11:19
AegisXbullgard4_: Haha, I can't read German, so I'll try a translator. Thanks for the help though, at least I know what to look for.11:19
nbest  ActionParsnip , yagoo, i guess i'll keep trying with autokey, perhaps i'll be able to figure it out11:20
nbest  thanks11:20
usalabsbullgard4_ the internal network is all the computer on my network used to be shown in nautilusm but now, after the updates I can't access any of the shared folders on the network11:21
AdvoWorkany idea where ubuntu would keep information(such as A records, for all domains on its server)?11:21
ActionParsnipnbest: there may be other solutions11:22
ActionParsnipAdvoWork: if you run:  route     it may show them11:22
bullgard4_usalabs: Did you do file sharing via smb or nfs?11:22
=== vlt is now known as vlt_phone
bullgard4_usalabs: I am not up-to-date with present SMB. I cannot help you finding the shared files.11:23
nbestActionParsnip,  yea, usually more than one way to do something on a computer, i was really asking if any of you guys had from your own personal experience used something like that and had good results11:23
nbest seriously, macros are so darn useful, once you've gotten used to them you'll never want to be without them again11:24
ActionParsnipnbest: gotcha, not something I do personally. I do some basic scripting in bash to make life easier but as for typing in GUIs with Macros it's not something I do11:24
usalabsok, thanks, I think I'll have to reformat the pc, and re-install ubuntu Lucid LTS and NOT do any updates, I'll stick to what someone said "if it works, then leave it alone"11:25
ActionParsnipusalabs: Lucid is LTS at the same time as Natty on the desktop11:25
bullgard4_usalabs: My productive system is also using Lucid LTS.11:26
jribusalabs: you want to make sure you install security  updates11:26
yagoonbest, did u find any with apt-cache searchv?11:26
AdvoWorkActionParsnip, would there not be a config file for all domainnames vs their NS/A records etc?11:26
nbest ActionParsnip , i gather bash is some kind of programing language, which is fine.. but the good thing about autohotkey.. is it is a system wide macro.. so you dont' have to learn a different language for every different context.. learn it once and you can use it on anything.. but anyway, that's neither here nor there since i'm on ubuntu now hehe11:26
usalabsI did, and it was theose updates that has stopped my from access all my ahred folders across the network11:26
nbest  yea, that's where i got autokey from yagoo11:26
nbest  i dl it but can't seem to figure out how to get it to work11:26
nbest  probably more my unfamilurarity with ubuntu than the application itself11:27

yagoonbest, i spotted a few here->xdotool, xmacro, keylauncher -- and this project looks promising https://github.com/polyethene/IronAHK#readme11:28
ActionParsnipAdvoWork: not sure personally11:28
yagoonbest, there are more tools but takes more advanced knowledge with things like xbindkeys..11:28
nbestyagoo, , yea ironahk is the first one i went for, but it's a project that's been dead for years now11:28
nbest and i couldnt' get xmacro to work either hehe11:29
yagoonbest, the last datestamp is apr 7 2011.. so i'm not sure if its entirely dead..11:29
yagooactually june 2011..11:29
usalabsjrib I did install the most recent security updates, and it's those updates that has stopped me from accessing the shared folders across the network, before I did those updates, I was always able to access the network shared folders11:29
jribusalabs: then it's probably worth it to determine the offending package11:29
dr_willisnbest,  i had to change autokey to use the  'X-record' interface for it t work properly here.11:30
nbest yagoo the last datestamp for a forum comment?11:30
usalabsjrib the updates included samba and winbind11:30
yagoothe site i gave has file directory..11:30
jribusalabs: so if you roll those back does the problem go away...?11:30
nbest dr_willis  i'm sure it works.. i was more asking on which macro would be easy to use for ubuntu noob11:30
usalabsjrib how do I do a forced downgrade?11:31
dr_willisnbest,  depends on how hes using the macros I guess..11:31
jribusalabs: sudo apt-get install PACKAGE=VERSION11:31
usalabsjrib how do I know what the previous version was?11:31
jribusalabs: apt-cache policy PACKAGE will show you the versions available11:31
dr_willisusalabs,  you have tried just entering the share server name/path directly in the file manager?11:32
yagoonbest, let me know about the other tools xdotool,xmacro,keylauncher..11:32
dr_willis  smb://server.ip.num.ber/sharename11:32
elacheche_anishello everybody :D I have a question :D11:32
yagoonbest, problem with linux is that doing this stuff is possible for many years but it's ugly...11:32
elacheche_anisWhy the iso 64b edition called amd64, and can this edition work on an intel cpu(centrino or higher)11:33
usalabsdr_willis yes, I tried IP address and host name, and the file manager just showed 'couldnot find smb:///hostname' or 'couldnot find smb:///IP'11:33
AdvoWorkActionParsnip, you probably don't want to know, but I found them in /var/cache/bind/db.**domainname.***11:33
yagooelacheche_anis, amd64 represents 64bit that works on non-itanium intel as well. (reason is because amd was first company to come out with the 64bit)11:34
usalabsdr_willis but from terminal, using smbclient -L hostname I see a list of shares11:34
elacheche_anisok thank you very much yagoo11:35
dr_willisusalabs,  i think you got to many / in the url --> (edample on m lan) -->  smb://nas/PEGSBOOK/11:35
yagooelacheche_anis, np11:35
ubottuAMD64 and Intel 64 are fully supported architectures on Ubuntu. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CommonQuestions#AMD64%20Processors and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amd64 for more information.11:35
ActionParsnipAdvoWork: freaky, mental note11:35
dr_willisusalabs,  browsing is totally broken here.. but i can access them all via directly entering the info.11:35
nbest yagoo, i've not tried xdotool, keylauncher.... those 2 yet.. idk, i think i'll try to get some more practice at ubuntu and maybe try xmacro again because it seems to be popular11:35
dr_willisusalabs,  but my Boxee box, thats running linux, can see them.. :()11:35
shomonhi, what would you recommend for a ubuntu 10.10 laptop that freezes on the login screen?11:35

nbest  yagoo, thanks again for all your suggestions11:36
ActionParsnipmega1: you'll need to upgrade to maverick first11:36
yagoonbest, np..11:36
ActionParsnipshomon: hold shift at boot, select the memtest from the menu you see11:37
mega1how do i do that11:37
=== newton is now known as Guest9600
yagoonbest, i dunno wtf is wrong with developers i bet a lot of people would like this fully implemented and more graphic friendly11:37
ActionParsnipmega1: use the maverick alternate ISO or CD or use the internet11:37
shomonok thanks ActionParsnip11:37
dr_willisusalabs,  weird.. i enter in nautilus  smb://nas/PEGSBOOK/   and it works. still cant browse to it.11:38
nbestyagoo,   lol, yea, i was getting pretty frustrated trying to dl all these progs and not being able to get any to work , but you still gotta love ubuntu.. free, and secure , a great philosophy11:38
shomondr_willis, actually I had problems first that it wouldn't boot and did the blank screen with pointer freeze, but after going into grub and turning on nomodeset it now boots to frozen login :D11:38
shomonI wonder if all that relates to video chipset...11:38
ActionParsnipshomon: if you have bad RAM try removing a stcik (after powering OFF) and retesting. This will help diagnose the bad stick11:38

ActionParsnipEllipsis753: drivers for what part of the board?12:03
bazhangEllipsis753, hardware in ##hardware as I said12:03
dr_willisEllipsis753,  normally its a 'chipset' you need a driver for. Not the whole MB.12:03
mega1i will have to burn it12:03
ActionParsnipmega1: why?12:03
ActionParsnipbazhang: sure the user wants ubuntu drivers for his/her hardware?12:04

Ryan__SOS, you might try adding the repositories correctly. I don't have them right here for Unity, but the code is: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nameofprogramppa12:13
mega1do you think upgrading will work12:14
Ryan__In Google or any other search engine, you might search: unity repository ubuntu 11.0412:14
PiciRyan__: What are you talking about? Unity is in the default Ubuntu repos.12:14
tyler_dkrazykrivda: I don't see why can't? just be sure you do cp "$foo" <<destination>>12:15
Ryan__I was thinking there might be a broken package somewhere on the system. That's why I suggested that12:15

Ryan__makara, you might try upgrading Ubuntu, unless you don't want to. But if you do, then try this: Press Alt + F2 on the keyboard. Then, type: update-manager -d. You can then choose to upgrade Ubuntu.12:20

ActionParsnipTBotNik: wicd12:23

ActionParsnipTBotNik: I find it more flexible, it doesn't do 3G but if you never use 3G you are ok12:24
rumbaI unplugged my network cable while the computer was running, plugged it into another computer, then back into mine and now the network doesn't work anymore. I've even reset the router and no change.12:24

fider123is it advised to dist-upgrade to kernel 2.6.38-10 ??12:25
BluesKajrumba, try rebooting your computer ..don't ask me why12:25
ActionParsniprumba: try restarting the network service, or unloading and loading the module driving the interface12:25
dr_willisfider123,  if you need the new features.. yes.. if not.. no..12:25
Picifider123: If you're not sure, read the changelogs.12:25
rumbaBluesKaj: Did that a few times. Also kept if off and removed the network chable, put the cable back in, turned it back on.12:25
ActionParsnipTBotNik: there are usually alternatives in all cases, each has strengths and weaknesses12:25
bullgard4_rumba: Get your eth0 operational.12:25
fider123Pici: where is a changelog ?12:25
krazykrivdatyler_d: i think it is simply impossible12:25

dr_willisfider123,  no idea.12:26
rumbaThe network card's lights are on when I boot but they turn off _during_ Ubuntu's boot12:26
TBotNikActionParsnip: HOWTO url please, tired on this NM mess.12:26
ActionParsniprumba: you may need to unload and load the nic module12:26
dr_willisfider123,  i always upgrade to the latest.... :)12:26
ActionParsnipTBotNik: sudo apt-get install wicd    it may be on the liveCD which you can add as a repo12:26
TBotNikActionParsnip: Assume I have to purge nm first?12:26
maahesIIRC, editing resolv.conf manually for ubuntu while using nm-applet was useless because nm-applet constantly overwrote it, if I wanted to force nm-applet to use the same DNS for all connections, how would I do so?12:26
ubottuTo set up a Domain Name Service see the !serverguide - https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/dns.html12:26
rumbabullgard4_: Isn't that why I'm here? :P12:26

ActionParsnipmaahes: yes but only when the link comes up, if the dhcp has happened you can edit all you want12:27
JurgentjeHi... I'm having troubles with LPROF (for icc profiles) ... can't find how to load the IT8 target12:27
TBotNikActionParsnip: Will also have to CHROOT from here to install right?12:27
rumbaOkay, I'm on wireless now. Brb.12:27
dr_willismaahes,  i just set my routers dns #'s then set the machines to use the routers ip as their dns.12:27
BluesKajrumba, then follow ActionParsnip 's suggestion , /etc/init.d/networking restqart12:27
bullgard4_rumba: I do not know why you are here. But I answered the question which you put here in this channel.12:27
maahesdr_willis~> this is a laptop12:27
Picifider123: If you're regularly concerned with what changes upgrades are bringing you, you should install apt-listchanges.  It will give you a list after it has downloaded the packages (before it installs them). Alternatively... I'm getting you a link for this package's changes.. one moment.12:27
maahesneither of those answers are solutions12:27
ActionParsnipmaahes: you can set DNS servers in network manager, just set the connection to DHCP (address only) and you can set the DNS servers you desire12:27
BluesKajthis dam kb12:27
maahesActionParsnip~> that works *per connection*12:27
maahesnot globally12:28
ActionParsnipTBotNik: that's another way, slightly more graceful plus you'll get the latest wicd from the repos12:28
maahesI.e. if I connect to Wifi_Hotspot1 it works there, but if I connect to Wifi_Hotspot2 I have to set it again.12:28
ActionParsnipmaahes: I beleive there is an all connection option. Wicd can do it12:28
rumbaRestarted network service, no change.12:29
rumbaThe network card's lights turn off during Ubuntu's boot.12:29
Picifider123: This should be it. Chrome is doing some weird things here (windows) so I had to use w3m: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/2.6.38-10.4612:32
BluesKajrumba, sudo ifconfig up12:32
maahesI hate that ubuntu now requires logging in to view the forums12:33

TBotNikmaahes: Not all entries, just some12:33
skymind0after i installed backtrack tools on ubuntu 10.04 synaptic package manager did not work  how i can fix that12:34
rumbaTried rmmod and modprobe r8169, but nothing changed (except that eth0 now appears as the last interface when I do ip a).12:34
dr_willisskymind0,  try the cli apt-get commands?12:34
bnovcwhenever I start typing anything, anywhere, the Ubuntu panel searcher thing pops up12:34

bnovcor maybe even a fix for this12:35
yagoorumba, u need to alias eth0 to r8169 with modprobe conf file12:35
ActionParsnipTBotNik: do you mean "How can I chroot"?12:35
yagoorumba, perhaps the alias file..12:35
skymind0all of backtrack tools12:35
yagooubottu should have that factoir12:35
ubottuyagoo: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)12:35
rumbayagoo: Yes, please be more specific.12:35
TBotNikActionParsnip: You said "A more graceful way than chroot" I said how?12:36
yagoorumba, i think i gave u enough info.12:36
yagoo(yes i know how to do it)12:36
dr_willisskymind0,  whats is this 'backtrack tools' You are refering to? Ive never heard of them. If you mean stuff from a a backtrack repo. well. You may want to start by removing them.12:36
yagoo( i don't spoon feed nor rtfm because i'm polite )12:36
yagoo(unless u push me)12:36
bazhangyagoo, then dont answer at all12:36
ActionParsnipTBotNik: imho the chrioot is better as you wil be using the web like a regular install. If you enable the install CD as a repo using software centre (and wicd is on the CD) then you can install from there12:36

skymind0you are dr_willis but that tools are very interesting12:46
bnovchm, it seems to be every time I hit ctrl or shift that the launcher bar opens12:46
skymind0dr_wills what is your opinion about python do you think it is good for beginners &hackers?12:47
OmegaForteskymind0, Did you just say that...12:48
TBotNikActionParsnip: My cdrom is not commented out in the /etc/apt/sources.list file, so I'm good to go?12:48
dr_willisskymind0,  just never use the term 'hackers' or 'hacking' again.. it just makes stuff sound stupid.. and Yes. Python is a good language to learn..12:48
quisealI need some help to restart the network manager applet. Anyone ?12:48
dr_willisquiescens,  run nm-applet from the terminal?12:49
skymind0i am sorry12:49
TheCyberShockerHi guys got a different problem now, just installed kubuntu and, for some reason its quite slow, net is slow, and when i click "log out" its just black with the mouse, also the taskbar won't maximize to my screen size12:49

S0SThe following packages have unmet dependencies:  tor : Depends: libevent1 (>= 1.3e) but it is not installable E: Broken packages  <-------- what can I do about it?12:49
wolsdr_willis: without sudo? is it suid root?12:49
dr_williswols,  no idea.12:49
TBotNikActionParsnip: Ah I think we need this in the HDD file, so will work right on reboot, or not?12:49
wolsquiseal: kill it and restart it?12:49
ActionParsnipTBotNik: assuming wicd is on the CD and the CD is in the drive, yes. run:   sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install wicd12:49
quisealwols:  Tried, not working12:49
quisealwols:  I can12:49
wols!doesn't work12:49
ubottuDoesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.12:49
BluesKajrumba, that modprobe reference threw me off , but the rt with a number usually indicates a wifi driver, mine uses rtc and I'm on ethernet12:49
quisealI can't acces my router either.12:50
quisealwols:  I can't be more explicit sorry, because I am on a live cd.12:50

quisealwols:  I am currently running a live cd...12:51
S0SErrrr..... ok o.o12:51
quisealwols:  Any suggestions ?12:51
OmegaForteActionParsnip, Is firewire still considered a "network spooler" in linux...Or do I really have phantom nic's.12:51
wolsquiseal: has your internet access ever worked? andif so, what did you change?12:51
wolsOmegaForte: it still is a NIC aong other things12:52
ActionParsnipOmegaForte: you can use them as NICs, that I know. Otherwise not sure12:52
quisealwols:  I have changed nothing. The current connection works on a live cd just fine12:52
wolsquiseal: I asked about your ubuntu installation12:52
tyler_dI'm trying to get unity back(ubuntu 11.04) when I do unity --reset I get  a seg fault, I went one step further and tried simply `compiz` with the same result.. hep please?12:52
OmegaFortewols, Dammit. I hate firewire.12:52
quisealwols:  The problem is that when I started my machine today, network manager applet was no longer in the gnome bar...and I could not acces my router from firefox which is odd.12:52
ActionParsniptyler_d: is it ok as another user?12:52
quisealwols:  Running 10.10 32 bit ubuntu on the machine12:53
tyler_dActionParsnip: haven't checked12:53
OmegaFortetyler_d, Just log out, select the interface tingus and set it to Unity from whatever you set it to.12:53
wolsquiseal: so check logs, the output of ifconfig, your /etc/network/interfaces, etc12:53
tyler_dOmegaForte: it is already set as unity12:53
quisealwols:  Ok, I'll try. Isn't there some kind of repair of ubuntu?:)12:53

ionitewols: u mean i should use a terminal? can't i use a graphic interface to boot EXE files?12:58
cabulosoi just installed ubuntu 11.04 and tried gwibber for twitter, but nothing shows up in the timeline after i created the account and authorized, anyone can help?12:58
sudokilldouble clicking the exe should work12:58
rumbaBluesKaj: No, I don't see any IP addresses after a 'route'12:59
tyler_dOmegaForte: nothing to compiz specifically, I have been trying to get unity back for some time; with the nvidia drivers or intel drivers (laptop) I don't really care which... fighting for 2 weeks now; currently I'm using the nouveau drivers(ensured that they weren't blacklisted) and rolled back to an old kernel... still no joy12:59
wolsionite: yu can. depending how the GUI is set up. and you can alwaysdefine a shortcut that does "wine <program>"12:59
rumbaI just reinstalled the network-manager via aptitude. I'll reboot and see what happens.12:59
OmegaFortetyler_d, Well, compiz doesn't just into space. It sounds like all the work you've been doing broke a bunch of the dependencies, may be time for a clean install.12:59
tyler_dOmegaForte: well that is simply fantastic to hear.13:00
ionitewols: i got this error http://paste.ubuntu.com/659278/13:00
wolstyler_d: I wouldnÄt listen to him. if there are broken dependencies, apt-get is VERY vocal about them, trust me13:00
OmegaFortetyler_d, Welcome to Linux. Where the tutorials are older than the distros.13:00
BluesKajok rumba, but an install --reinstall would be best , if you updated lately13:01
AdvoWorkany reason why i cant format a drive from ntfs to ufs with gparted?13:01
wolstyler_d: and were you should be very careful what people tell you on irc13:01
ionitewols: alright i solved it. but i'm still puzzled why cant i right click and run it?13:01
wolsAdvoWork: what does gparted tell you?13:01
wolsionite: cause an .exe file is no linux binary?13:02
tyler_dOmegaForte: I personally think thats not a valid solution; if I were using windows ok. but I'm smart enough to know that you can check logs; strace on programs, its simply the next step that is missing; finding someone smarter than I am13:02
tyler_dwols: ;) your a star man I concur13:02
ionitewols: no i mean, like right click, run with WINE13:02
AdvoWorkwols, its just greyed out13:02
OmegaFortetyler_d, Well the thing is; that every step forward you take, you remove the ability to take a step backwards unless you maintain recursive backups.13:02
wolsionite: you are probably looking in the wrong place for autorun.exe. provide a full path to it13:02
wolsAdvoWork: is there a mkfs.ufs somewhere?13:03
ionitewols: but i still get the error of the file '/home/david/Desktop/English/autorun.exe' is not marked as executable.  If this was downloaded or copied from an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run.  For more details, read about the executable bit.13:03
ionitewols: i'm talking about running from GUI.13:03
wolstyler_d: have you tried a new user as suggested?13:03
AdvoWorkwols, locate couldnt find mkfs.ufs13:03
wolstyler_d: ahdn what is the gxinfo | head -n 10 output?13:03
wolsAdvoWork: hence why you cannot create such a filesystem. linux suppor for ufs is very bare to nonexistant anyways afaik13:04
tyler_dwols: root@cthompson:~# glxinfo | head -n 1013:04
tyler_dError: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig13:04
tyler_dname of display: :0.013:04
ionitewols: i tried right clicking the exe file and run with WINE but it doesn't work.13:04
AdvoWorkwols, thing is, its going to be for a freenas box,which uses ufs :/13:04
wolstyler_d: that's an wesome reason why compiz segfaults. no proper 3D support.13:04
dr_willisionite,  use the terminal   wine /path/to/the/whatever.exe13:04
wolstyler_d: question: did you use drives from nvidia.com before? and then switched back to nouveau?13:05
ionitedr_willis: why should i use the terminal and not GUI?13:05
dr_willisionite,  you want it to work? :)13:05
tyler_dwols: fantastical; back to square 1... yah, you and I have been around the block a time or 2 together13:05
sudokillright clicking the exe should work13:05
ionitedr_willis: btw, i installed it in C:/windows where can I find the installed application?13:05
sudokilldouble clicking*13:05
dr_willisionite,  i alwyas use terminal to start wine apps.. theres often a lot of messages/erorrs/info in the terminal text.13:05
wolstyler_d: answer my question please13:05
ionitesudokill: i did try right clicking but it wasn't successful till i used the terminal13:05
wolsionite: check ~/.xsession-errors perhaps13:05
dr_willisionite,  wine has its own 'special' .wine directory that clones a winmdows install13:06
bullgard4_[Natty] /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.38/drivers/mmc/host/Kconfig is headlined: "MMC/SD host controller drivers". What is a "host controller"?13:06
ionitedr_willis: so where can find the files?13:06
tyler_dwols: initially I had tried the nvidia.com drivers yes. .then removed; tried the repo nvidia drivers ; rolled back to nouveau (currently nouveau)13:06
makaralet's start from the top. I have Lynx with Internet and Natty without. I run ethernet cable between them and Natty tries to autoconnect ethernet. It fails. Why?13:06
wolsbullgard4_: a controller on a host. SATA, USB, SDCards, all have host controllers13:06
sprungionite, there is also a #winehq which is the official WINE support channel, they might be able to help you better13:06
wolsmeaning you can attach a "client", in this case a SD card13:07
asdjaputramakara, wait, what?13:07
tyler_dmakara: because the lynx server isn't a dhcp server?13:07
wolsmakara: what is this "Lynx"?13:07
Piciwols: lucid13:07
tyler_dmakara: lynx as far as I know is a text based browswer13:07
makaralucid lynx 10.04 LTS13:07
sprunghe's talking about lucid lynx duh13:08
wolsand as tyler_d just told you, this lynxeither needs a DHCP server or you have to set a static IP on both ends13:08
* sprung rolls eyes13:08
tyler_dawesome.. I just lost the internet race13:08
dr_willisionite,  wine installs stuff into the ~/.wine directory13:08
asdjaputrait's better if he said lucid13:08
asdjaputraor 10.0413:08
wolsmakara: and depending on hardware, you also need a crossover cable13:08
makarawhy must I set an IP on Lynx. its got one from the modem13:08
OmegaFortetyler_d, It's a good thing dude. Winning the internet is paramount to an hero.13:08
sprungmost everybody calls the Lynx browser "links" now13:08
ionitedr_willis: it's not in the file system manager??13:09
wolsmakara: your ethernet you connect to from natty doesn't have an IP. and neither does natty if it doesn't use dhcp or set a static one13:09
sudokillsprung, theyre 2 different browsers13:09
wolssprung: no. they are different browsers13:09
Nicolusis there a xlsx to pdf convertor ?13:09
tyler_dmakara: your 10.04 system gets an ip address from a dhcp server, you need to provide a "bridge" or alternetely the 10.04 has to act as a dhcp server to the other machine13:09
bullgard4_wols: Ah! Understood. Thank you very much for your help.13:09

dr_willisionite,  You do not install windows apps via wine 'system wide'13:10
wolsavinashhm: screen should do it13:10
OmegaForteavinashhm, byobu13:10
wolsdr_willis: depends where the .wine is :P13:10
asdjaputrawols, seconded13:10
tyler_dmakara: or nat it.. but from what I can tell your easiest solution is to plug them both into a router(which is a dhcp server) and go to town13:10
rumbaReposting with more info: I removed the network cable from my computer, plugged it into another, plugged it back into mine and the network card stopped working in Ubuntu 11.04.

wolsmega1: lspci -nn knows13:22
airtonixRA_drc: because you're video card isn't properly supported by your driver. I suspect you are using compiz as the window manager, try installing fusion-icon and switching window manager to metacity13:23
craigbass1976airtonix, I'm in Lucid.  You are right, it's in the print dialog that most apps pop up, but not in this app.  And it doesn't show up in the pist of lrinters when I go into the cups GUI13:23

airtonixcraigbass1976: which application is this ?13:23
mega1ok its a broadcom bcm5751 gigabit pci express13:24
airtonixcraigbass1976: it won't show up in the CUPS web admin or the printer configuration application because it's nothing to do with cups as far as i suspect.13:24
craigbass1976airtonix, it's a java web app; proprietary that I've managed to get running in linux13:24
RA_drcairtonix: how can i tell if i'm using compiz, what should i do to install fusion-icon, and how do i switch the window manager?13:24
craigbass1976airtonix, right, I was wondering if there were some app that would give me a pdf printer cups does see13:24
kakha_hi all13:25
airtonixcraigbass1976: just out of interest, could you screenshot this print dialog window that your java application is producing ?13:25
airtonixcraigbass1976: in anycase, you canf find the cups pdf printer by using apt-cache search cups | grep pdf13:25
airtonixRA_drc: either on the terminal : sudo apt-get install fusion-icon13:26
airtonixRA_drc: or in software center applications > software center. search for fusion-icon, install it.13:27

ubottuepzis: For help on installing and using Ubuntu on a mac, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MactelSupportTeam/CommunityHelpPages14:00
epzisActionParsnip: that involves rEFIt which i don't want to use14:01
ActionParsnipepzis: as far as I am aware you have to14:01
epzisActionParsnip: why i HAVE to? what would prevent me from using say grub ?14:01
Kiff__can anyone assist me with getting automount of a usb device to work14:01
epzisplus i see lots of people claimiing they dual boot without it (on forums but i couldnt ask them how as they never came back lol)14:02
ActionParsnipepzis: your dumbass hardware is stopping you. If you had a regular system, you could.14:02
ben22Could somebody please tell me which service respawns "wpa_supplicant -u -s" when it is killed?14:02
epzisActionParsnip: hardware isnt an issue , single boot works14:02
OmegaForteKiff__, sudo gedit /etc/fstab . Add the mount point, and the local mount with the noauto flag.14:02
jribepzis: you can try grub-efi though I didn't have luck booting os x with it last time i tried14:03
OmegaForteepzis, Yeah, it is the hardware's fault. Your hardware requires EFI support, which is like a hardware abstraction layer loading before the hardware abstraction layer.14:03
epzisOmegaForte: AFAIK (i may be wrong on this) Linux (not just ubuntu )supports EFI now14:04
epzisplus, even tho i would like it to be MY hardware it's actually Apple's lol14:04
qoshey guys. is there a way to switch between 2 x servers by a terminal command? i started a second x server and now i am not able to switch between them with CTRL-ALT-6..9 -.-14:05

ActionParsnipepzis: could use boot camp, or is that the same thing?14:05
ActionParsnipepzis: true but you chose to buy it14:05
epzisActionParsnip: same thing as what? and i didn't choose to pay it i got it given for work14:06
epzis*buy it14:06
ActionParsnipepzis: is bootcamp == refit?14:06
epzisActionParsnip: if you ask my opinion bootcamp is nothing (never seen its use) but yeah if you know a way to dualboot using bootcamp ill give it a try14:07
Kiff__OmegaForte:  lol looking at my fstab for some reason /dev/sdb1 was listed to mount at /14:07
Kiff__not /dev/sda1.. i changed the sdb to sda and now it works if i plug it in14:07
mega1wols it says eth4 not eth014:08
ben22does anybody know how to permanently kill 'wpa_supplicant' ?14:08
OmegaForteKiff__, That's the root mount. Where the OS is installed. You need to find your USB dringus's sd# and set a mount point, and define the file table, add the noauto for when it's missing so it doesn't gripe, define rw so you can write to it, and 0 0 for error handling.14:08
Kiff__OmegaForte: i know its the root mount.. but i dont know why my root device was listed in fstab as sdb114:09
OmegaForteKiff__, Because that' the location of it.14:09
Kiff__becuase my root device is sda14:09
Kiff__df -h shows /dev/sda1             226G  8.2G  206G   4% /14:10
OmegaForteKiff__, I learned something yesterday. Certain USB devices get added before some hard drives, but as long as grub points to the right UUID/address, it doesn't matter.14:10
qoshey guys. is there a way to switch between 2 x servers by a terminal command? i started a second x server and now i am not able to switch between them with CTRL-ALT-6..9 -.-14:10
mega1can i change eth4 to eth014:11
ActionParsnipepzis: not something I've done but it appears it can be done14:11
epzisActionParsnip: you have a link describing it?14:11
Kiff__so it should matter then that i edited fstab to sda1 /14:11
ActionParsnipepzis: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=67854214:11
ActionParsnipepzis: maybe14:11
epzisActionParsnip: that asks me to register O.o14:12
OmegaForteKiff__, Yeah, it does. Just undo what you did before you break something. In linux, there is no undo button.14:12
doubletwistSo, what might cause java web start [javaws] to take **forever** to start? Even if I just run it to get to the settings, it takes about 2 minutes to actually start, but I can't tell what it's doing. I'm using the sun-java6-jre version of jav14:12
Kiff__ok but  how did it mount /dev/sda1 to / when its listed as /dev/sdb114:13
OmegaForteKiff__, God. Okay, stop overthinking this. Open Disk Util from System - Administration.14:13
OmegaForteKiff__, Then unplug the USB dingloid and see WHICH ONE VANISHES. Write that down and plug it back in, and see where it is now.14:14
ActionParsnipepzis: oh, I have an ubuntu forums account. let me retry. All I'm searching for is: ubuntu bootcamp14:14
ActionParsnipepzis: you should try it too14:14
Kiff__i dont need to i know its sdb14:14
mega1how do i reconfiger my network card14:14
OmegaForteKiff__, You  know this, but it wasn't there. Hmm14:14
epzisActionParsnip: if i'm here i eventually did some research, all i found was either use refit or windows14:15
Kiff__it was in disk utility.. i said that when i joined the channel.. but when i clicked mount in disk utility it said mtab says its mounted as / already14:15
OmegaForteKiff__, Maybe it's because the special device mounts are detected on kernel boot, instead of by the bios. And anything mounted at / is the ROOT FILE SYSTEM. Where the OPERATING SYSTEM is installed.14:15
Kiff__which doenst make sense becuase sda is mounted as /14:15
makara_hi. ifconfig -a gives a list of interfaces: eth0, lo, ppp0, wlan0. if I set the ip for eth0 will that affect the ip for ppp0?14:16

ActionParsnipepzis: not sure, why is refit not desirable?14:17
epzisActionParsnip: that mac is still under warranty, surprisingly enough apple wont annoy me if i install linux but surely will if i install refit (thats what they said)14:17

BluesKajtyler_d, what are you trying to do ?14:58
TBotNikBluesKaj: No wonder FF was crapping, showing 3.0 and 3.5 both installed in Synaptic, so can't run because of conflicts, purging all the 3.0 stuff going to 3.514:58

tyler_dBluesKaj: oh dear me. yes, I am trying to remove all packages that refer to the virtual package nvidia-glx15:03
TBotNikusr13: I know I was strictly on 3.5 before I issued the wicd install.  It did purge on NM and I had done that a couple weeks back on another machine and that does knock out parts of FF, dependency wise, then all the 3.0 FF stuff had to come from the wicd install, cus I knew I was on 3.5, had cleaned it up about a month back.15:03
atannusHi. I have the Purple Screen of Death. 10.10 was running _fine_ on the machine, and after upgrade to 11.04 is stuck on purple screen. I have tried all solutions presented on forums, no good. Booting with older kernels .38 and .35 get me to the login screen, but after I type int hte password, I get nothing but the background and the mouse pointer (which can move). The 10.10 install had openSSH installed and working, so I _can_ ssh into the machine15:03
atannus, from where I tried removing the nvidia drivers and reinstalling them, which also did not help. This seems to be a common problem with 11.04, and I also know there is no option to downgrade back to 10.10. Does anyone have an idea?15:03

atannusbut no one seems to give a damn about that.15:16
highness_ne2k: Perfect15:16
usr13atannus: I understand there is a way to do it and have seen some info on it, but don't know how reliable it is.  Best to back up your /home dir and do fresh install. (If you have /home on separate partition, just tell the install to leave it alone and set same user name.15:16
ne2khighness_: this is /etc/crontab, not a user's crontab15:16

ne2khighness_: look in /etc/crontab and see15:18

highness_Is that the wrong way to go?15:18

atannusI'll do a clean debian this time. Ubuntu is becoming too applelish to my taste anyways...15:18
Syntheadwhat does "auth --useshadow --enablemd5" do in a kickstart?15:19
ne2khighness_: crontab -e is for editing a user's crontab, which is different from editing the system crontab15:19
usr13atannus: You can switch back to gnome....15:19
atannususr13, i cant BOOT into the system...15:19
highness_ne2k: Ah.. And when I do crontab -e as root, will it have the same effect?15:19
ne2khighness_: to edit the system crontab, you just edit /etc/crontab -- or use the /etc/cron.daily,etc/ directories (look in /etc/crontab to see how they work)15:19
atannususr13, the damn think is broken. upgrade broke it.15:19

highness_ne2k: Ok. Thanks.15:20
atannususr13, I can ssh, but that's no good for a desktop...15:20
BluesKajmakara_, ssh default port is 22 , so do , ssh alex@remotepcIPaddress15:20
ne2khighness_: I do know, though, that it is acceptable and works to edit the system crontab just by editing /etc/crontab and it will automatically be picked up15:20
makara_usr13: refused. I've only got one login name on this pc and its alex. I'm already logged in and talking to you through it. Can there be multiple logins on one name?15:20
usr13atannus:  What is broken?  (Probably can be fixed.)15:20
ne2khighness_: and that it is /not/ acceptable to edit a user's crontab in this way15:20

atannusjrib, pointless since I can ssh into that machine from other boxes.15:28
jribatannus: can you pastebin /boot/grub/grub.cfg?15:28
ActionParsnipatannus: then nomodeset may be needed, some display stuff in 11.04 is ni teh kernel, which is why it works in Maverick15:28

ioniteWhy does my mp3 stutters even while switching windows or opeing a new tab??15:29
ActionParsnipatannus: different kernel, different issues. Something working in an older version doesn't mean as much as you think15:29

ActionParsnipatannus: no, just that the OS is different so may not work as you expect. Did you try the nomodeset boot option?15:33
atannusjrib, tried removing splash.15:33

dliNarc, still overheating is the real issue15:56
Narcdli: Do you think the network crash is caused by overheating ?15:57
dliNarc, one possibility15:58

trismuosiu: may want to read: http://wiki.debian.org/Adding%20and%20removing%20diversions in addition to the linked Appendix G16:58
ActionParsnipepifanio: hold shift at boot and select recovery mode, then select root and install gnome-power-manager16:59
ActionParsnipepifanio: fixed it for me16:59
hwildeguibou, all of these things are probably based on   /proc/PID/status17:00

mrmcgibbywhat's the proper way to configure a system with two nics where one nic is DHCP and the connected to the internet, and the other is just a private nic with a static IP?  The system keeps trying to use the non-internet nic to get to the internet.  There are two default routes17:06
ActionParsnip!ics | mrmcgibby17:07
ubottumrmcgibby: If you want to share the internet connection of your Ubuntu machine with other machines in the network see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet/ConnectionSharing17:07
ActionParsnipmrmcgibby: you should just need to set the internal nic to static IP with no default gateway17:07

[THC]AcidRainboywonder, i would format your drive to a ext317:10
OmegaFortebrickwall, Try this...http://www.linuxant.com/alsa-driver/archive/alsa-driver-linuxant-
boywonder[THC]AcidRain, format un possible17:10
mrmcgibbyfructose: are you sure you need to reboot?  Have you tried Ctrl-alt-f1?17:10

boywondericeroot,  i tried to install smbfs but it didnt work17:11

icerootboywonder: and the drive is running on windows?17:12
ScuniziI'm looking for openstreetmap in the repos and all I see are icon sets.. with perhaps a reference to "maptool".. what am I missing here?17:12
boywondericeroot, its a network drive17:12

OmegaFortebrickwall, If that doesn't do you any good, welcome to Known bug/Idea #553717:12
mrmcgibbyfructose: if you can get to a console, you can look at the logs from there17:13
boywondericeroot, i dunno what that means i can tell you that i can access the shares in ubuntu17:13
boywondericeroot, i need to mount it in fstab17:13
icerootboywonder: ok and you want to permanently mount the drive?17:13
icerootboywonder: ok17:13
brickwallOne second...17:13
ActionParsnipnmvictor: then you have ahci loaded17:13
icerootboywonder: with what you access the drive from ubuntu? if you access the drive have a look at "mount" if it is nfs or cifs17:14
fructosemrmcgibby: I'm well aware that I have logs... I'm just not aware of how that helps right now. I don't know which one to look in or what to look for17:14

glebihanScunizi, what exactly do you need ? openstreetmap is a set of packages containing different applications17:14
Zh3kahello evryone17:14
nmvictorWhen my system starts, it dims off, I have to adust brightness back to normal with the fn combination. Suspend and hibernate dont work. I am running Natty with linux-kernel 2.6.38-8-generic on Acer 5734z machine. Is this a BUG?17:14
mrmcgibbyfructose: that's the point of looking at logs.  If you don't know what's wrong, you can perhaps start nailing now the issue17:14
uosiuHi again17:14

uosiunext step of my problem with file divertions17:15
boywondericeroot, its cifs17:15
uosiuhttp://wklej.org/id/572632/ this is my problem with package with file colission. divertion is activated17:15
Scuniziglebihan: I thought there was one main file for install.. I"ve got a .gpx file I'm trying to open and view the route.17:15
nmvictorActionParsnip: does ahci module support usb 3.0 too?17:15
OmegaForteZh3ka, Wine can, but it's hit or miss. Go to appdb.winehq.org and search.17:15
icerootboywonder: ok, so its using also credentials?17:15
icerootboywonder: user/password?17:15
boywondericeroot, yes17:16
glebihanScunizi, openstreetmap is a data format and database, and there are several applications that can use that data17:16
glebihanScunizi, have a look at the link I gave you in order to find what package you need to install17:17
[THC]AcidRainwhat irc client does everyone use?17:17
fructosemrmcgibby: Again, pardon my frustration, but it's pretty useless to be simply told to look in the logs. There are many, many logs in many different locations17:17
rww[THC]AcidRain: ask bestbot in #ubuntu-bots17:17
Scuniziglebihan: did.. the link was enlightening.. thanks. I also found that I can open the file in G-Earth as well.. kinda nice..17:17
OmegaForterww, What's that off-topic flag?17:18
boywondericeroot, i think i have the correct page todo this just it installs smbfs for some reason?17:18

mrmcgibbyfructose: Do you want to solve the problem or not?  When it freezes, go into /var/log, find the most recently modified log and see if something useful was recently added.  The cause might be a number of things.  You might find nothing, you might find something.  That's the nature of troubleshooting issues.  If I knew what the problem was, then I'd tell you what log to look in, but I don't.17:20

fructoseKM0201: I don't know why it's freezing. I'm doubtful it's hardware, but have no evidence since I rarely use another OS on it17:27
ubottuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)17:27

KM0201fructose: if it's never froze on anything but 11.04, my first thought would be a problem w/ Unity oor maybe 3D drivers17:28
KM0201fructose: if you switch to gnome-2d, does this continue to be an issue?17:28
fructoseKM0201: I've already switched to Gnome17:28
fructoseKM0201: And even before, restarting unity wouldn't always solve it (though it did on a couple occasions)17:28

ubottuAPT is the Advanced Package Tool, which together with dpkg forms the basic Ubuntu package management toolkit. Short apt-get manual: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGetHowto - Also see !Synaptic (Gnome), !Adept (KDE) or !KPackageKit (KDE)17:29
OmegaFortebrickwall, I'd just build it against make if possible. But like I'm telling you, it's a known bug. You're probably not going to be able to get much more. But don't be afraid to try stuff, but remember. If you don't take recursive backups, you may be setting up for failure.17:29
