coz_Thaumx,  mm I am not familiar with this ,, hold on00:00
Thaumxthanks coz00:00
coz_Thaumx,  my search so far has many who apparenlty are having similar issues with this00:03
coz_Thaumx,   out of curiosity,,,  do   sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade00:04
Thaumxthanks coz, I've been googling different variations for the last day, can't seem to find a fix.00:04
coz_Thaumx,  one thing you could do is disable that in  /etc/apt/sources.list00:04
cmannsimma try ppa-purge00:05
coz_Thaumx,  rather disable that PPA00:05
GTAXLThe page just shows up black. :/00:05
coz_Tharlinn,  some are reporting that the purchase has taken up to 7 hours  for some applications00:05
cmannswell i didnt enable it00:05
cmannsall i know is fresh installs giving me cannto load session ubuntu00:05
\u03b5hello, is there a more or less documented way to manually install ubuntu?00:05
Thaumxsorry, I'm very new to ubuntu, not familiar with PPA. I am running that command you sent now. it's stuck on the two purchased apps now til it times out and continues00:06
bazhang\u03b5, manually?00:06
\u03b5bazhang: partition manager is not letting us do what we want, it insists on formatting a partition we already formatted00:06
\u03b5and it fails upon doing so00:07
bazhang\u03b5, the alternate cd gives tons more control, if you are using the live cd method00:07
bazhang\u03b5, text based (ncurses) install only00:08
coz_Thaumx,  ok,,,  well if you opena terminal    sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list   and see if that PPA  is listed,, if so ,, in front of it  put   #  and save the file then rerun  the apt-get update00:08
coz_Thaumx,   be right back,,nature call00:08

cmannsOnly issue now is whenever I click certain progs in xfce it brings up a dialog for pass and its not my user/sudo pass :|00:21

Thaumxcoz_, I can't seem to find anything in the sources.list related to the purchased software. nothing using https, either00:23
coz_Thaumx,   ok then I am puzzled,,, as I said I have not attempted to purchase anything so far,, it  may be a bug,,,  I would go ahead and try to report this on launchpad  for ubuntu 11.0400:24
Thaumxcoz_, yeah, that seems to be the only thing to do. I have no idea what could be causing the issue :(00:25
coz_Thaumx,   understood,,, I cant think of a solution at all,, unless someone here is more familiar with it than I am00:26
Ainsleehi, i'm trying to get kvm going by using the ubuntu wiki, it's telling me in networking to edit the compatability.conf file, but the line that it says to edit, isn't in the file, do i just insert it? (new to ubuntu etc)00:26

clausendoes anyone know which component of Ubuntu parses the LiveCD boot command "netcfg/disable_dhcp=true"?00:37
coz_Thaumx,   mm I dont think that is the issue,, somehow it is trying to find the  link for that particular piece of software,, could be that PPA is down00:38
coz_Thaumx,   try a reboot,, and then try the update,,  see if it gets rid of wanting to attempt to download that software,, or find the main site for that software and contact the developer about it00:38
cmannsSo I got the nvidia drivers installed, blank screen after boots. How can I single user?00:39
Thaumxcoz_, I tried that, they contacted the software people, and said the server is up. it's just not authenticating or something00:39
coz_Thaumx,  ooooo thats not good news00:39
coz_Thaumx,   then I am completely stuck,, create the bug report,, see what solutions they come up with00:40
alexThunderThaumx: what's your problem?00:40
ThaumxI can't connect to the PPA that serves out purchased software00:40

Thaumxcoz_, thanks for your help. I'll try a bug report :)00:42

Thaumxszal, both the items show up as purchased in the software center... they just never "update cache" when installing there00:50
szalThaumx: my guess (I never bought something there) is that you need a way to enter the credentials they provided for you; so either they have sent you instructions on how to do that, or you should ask00:52
alexThunderno that's not necessary00:52
alexThunderThaumx: what does apt-get update say?00:53

Thaumxlapaga, I'm not sure. none of that information is visible from the software center, only apt-get update. I've tried two purchases, so it seems unlikely that it's a problem with  a single item01:00

escottWinCamXP, not likely to get steam working under wine (but feel free to check winehq) there are occasional (usually unfounded) rumors of steam for linux. please try to keep your comments/questions to one line02:10

escottSeanmc98|mobile, you can then boot the install media/livecd and grow the ntfs partition out02:56

endipHi all, quick question. There's a known long term issue with Realtek NIC RTL8111/8168B. The problem is that Ubuntu loads the RTL8169 Drivers at book and doesn't recognize the NIC. I read somewhere that by blacklisting the RTL8169 Drivers ubuntu will load the RTL8111 drivers. So, my question is how can I blacklist the RTL8169 drivers? 'Cause I don't know how.03:42
=== SOULJABOY is now known as CitizenKang
escottendip, there is an /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, not sure exactly how it works03:43

endipwrong dir03:47
endipescott, Interesting, there's a file called blacklist-rare-network.conf  --- I wonder what that's for.03:48
KE1HAIf you remove all other drivers, you probably dont need to usr blacklist as there aren't any conflicting drvs.03:48
KE1HAThe purpose of blacklisting is to prevent other modules from being loaded that could render something inoperable.03:49

nankura hello guys, im on xubuntu 11.04 and id like to install gnome 3 to try it out, but i noticed in the package manager theres 2 options of a package called "gnome" and one called "gnome-session" gnome seems to be a package that includes alot of software and tools. but im wondering if i install that, will it take over my XFCE installation, or can i choose either from gdm04:01
escott!gnome3 | nankura04:01
ubottunankura: Gnome 3 is not currently supported on Ubuntu. A PPA for natty is available at https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3 but these packages are EXPERIMENTAL and UNSTABLE, will break Unity and possibly other parts of your system, and cannot be downgraded safely.04:01
TBotNikescott: But If I just restore it then back to square one, with it erroring.  Do you know that the ownership and permissions are supposed to be on this file?  When trouble start two things changed, 1. file somehow was chmod 775, 2. added "%myuser ALL=(ALL) ALL" to /etc/sudoers.04:02
endipDoes anyone know how to blacklist a RLTR8169 driver so that it doesn't load? I know you have to add a line to blacklist.conf, but I don't know how.04:02
klossorhmm ubuntu is outputting to 2 monitors (mirrored image) at the moment, though when I try to extend them I get an error stating the configuration request (3800 x 1920) cant be output... any idea's folks?04:02
TBotNikescott: Going to undo the sudoers now, but still do not understand the issue with the .profile file?04:02
escottTBotNik, permissions on your .profile shouldn't matter that much but 644 is sufficient04:04
escottTBotNik, mainly it shouldn be writable by other users since it gets executed all the time04:05
TBotNikescott: Set at 755 right now04:06
Generic_DumbassWhere does Ktorrent put your downloads by default?04:08
TBotNikescott: Thinking the entry is sudoers, was changing the uid level from 1000 to something else and therefore making it not readable, as seeing it no longer belonging to the user.04:08
TBotNikescott: Think I'm right?04:09
Generic_DumbassDisregard my question, Ktorrent became unreadable under High Contrast theme and it took a while04:10

rwwejv: I'm skeptical of this whole "it will work soon" thing, btw. Netflix says 12 months from now. I say "lol ok".05:33
wols_endip: well you can use apt-zip or such. but: I seriously doubt you can only go online with a specially compiled driver. just because you read that somehwere on the internet, doesn't make it true. but your choice what work you want to do05:33
endipwols: if it's on my ubuntu cd would it have been installed?05:34
corinthluckysmack, Yep, it was announced in May. Netflix is working on an html5 stream through Chrome, and it'll work in Chromium in Linux.05:34

endipwols: Is there another way?05:34
wols_endip: since you don't tell us about the problem in a meaningful way, no one can tell05:34

corinthjavier, Try downloading the Wubi tool from http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/windows-installer05:35
javieryeah, wubi isn't working for me either05:35
corinthluckysmack, probably the same way that Hulu secured its streams in html5.05:35

I'm trying to follow some instructions I found online that look like they will work for me.05:36

ubottuharesh: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade06:26
theadminharesh: Just saying, an upgrade is a very bad idea in Ubuntu. Best option is a reinstall.06:26

grytheadmin: Is this true for upgrade from any version, or just from a very old version to the latest one?06:27
Lasersjavier: The best course to have Ubuntu and preserve Windows 100%?  Get another hard drive. Install Ubuntu on that one. Keep things simple and separate (from each others).06:27
wols_endip: "link up" in dmesg clearly shows it has a physical connection to the router. I dunno why avahi has a different interface tho06:27

mystiquebawols_, I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 and I had to manually install the "real" OpenOffice from their website.  That's why I got rid of libreoffice.  Btw, what exactly do I use for "<each libreoffice package>."  I'm a total newbie06:35
micahlibreoffice sucks06:36
csdserverharesh, do you have access to your router configuration from another device on the network?06:36
endipwols: k06:36
micahi switched back to 10.04 cause it has open office06:36
wols_mystiqueba: now you see why installing stuff frm 3rd parties and PPAs is a bad idea06:36
HackNewtonok thanks wols_06:36
wols_mystiqueba: dpkg -l |grep libreoffice   all of those packages. alternatively  dpkg -l |grep openoffice   all of them06:36
mystiquebawols_, yeah.  But Openoffice had always been the standard so I don't see why it's such a big deal06:36
wols_micromatikal: libreoffice is the same as openoffice06:36
wols_mystiqueba: cause their packages are broken. and openoffice is not the standard anymore. and I wouldn't want to run any software owned by oracle if I can help it. and with libreoffice I have a hoice. Unlike Virtualbox or Java06:37
javierok. i am buring a livecd image. last time i did this i got a grub rescue prompt. what is the best way to install on a seperate (empty) drive for dual boot capability06:38
endipwols: sudo dhclient eth1 didn't return anything. Was it supposed to?06:38
mystiquebawols, that makes sense.  By the way, is there no easier way to do this?06:38
wols_endip: if a command doesn't print anything, it means it has succeded. which is a good thing06:39
endipwols: k, good06:39
wols_endip: same ff80 IP address?06:39
wols_fe80 rather06:39
endipwols: eth1:avahi is gone now.06:40
wols_endip: good riddance. avahi sucks. rarely if ever needed (it's zeroconf)06:40
endipwols, eth1 still gives me that inet6 addr: fe80:: ... etc.06:41
wols_endip: so what IP does eth1 have06:41
wols_hmm.. question is, why is it eth1 when you have no eth006:41
javiercan anyone help me set up natty via the gui on a separate drive from windows06:41
wols_javier: ubuntu will show you two disks when you install, install on the 2nd one. done06:41

DKSAINIhow i can install koha server06:43
wols_endip: if it is a new installatin, maybe do reinstall. check dmesg then for "link up" messages and hope it's eth0 this time. this could be the problem why nm doesn't use it06:43

wols_udev only changes to eth1 if there is a eth0 already or if the MAC of the ethernet changed06:44

javieri had windows in raid until today06:50
javierso i could split the drives for windows and ubuntu06:51
wols_javier: that's why. have you reinstalled your windows to remove the RAID?06:51
javieryes. In the bios, i am ide, and in windows i two separate drives06:51
wols_you should use "SATA" or "AHCI" normally. not IDE06:51
javierbut I am at the gui from the live cd for natty06:51
wols_and it's some artifact from your raid installation I'd say06:52
ekshibarovPolah: I am using all default settings in VirtualBox, only slightly increased the amount of RAM. Most likely this is a problem in VirtualBox, at later I'll try another virtual machine. Thank's06:52
javierhow do i get rid of it so this can work06:52

wols_mystiqueba: warnings are not errors06:56
bkerensaUbuntu hates usb wifi adapters06:56
OmegaFortejavier, Okay, you don't need to install a different operating system to configure your current one. Just go into the raid's firmware during boot and trash the array.06:56
javiersounds like i have to open the case, move sata connections out of a raid configuration, change the bios to ahci, and see what happens06:56
OmegaFortejavier, No, I just told you what to do.06:56
wols_javier: if you can get a /dev/sdb somewhere in the installer, you're good. if it continues to only show /dev/mapper you have a problem06:57

deembkerensa: i found an old thread from about 2005. it says chmodding /dev/console to 0644 solve the problem, but it doesn't06:58
OmegaFortejavier, No, dammit. CTRL-I or CTRL-H, depending on the controller, DESTROY THE ARRAY, And leave it be.06:58
bkerensadeem: You could try System -> Preferences -> Keyboard06:58

LarsTorbenI am usinh WIndows 7 by now, because Ubuntu 11.04 did not work good for me. I have a problem with window maximzing. SInce 11.04 Ubuntu uses Compiz because Unity08:44
IdleOne!classic | LarsTorben08:45
ubottuLarsTorben: The default interface in Ubuntu 11.04 is !Unity. To switch back to regular !GNOME: log out, click your username, click the Session box at the bottom of the screen, and select "Ubuntu Classic".08:45
stein-onLarsTorben, try kde08:45
LarsTorbenIdleOne: Yes, its possible. But it is not an alternative to 11.1008:45

samy3how to install the VirtulBox with the help of terminal command?08:46
LarsTorbenI will first try to explain the problem08:46
rwwLarsTorben: In oneiric, you can use GNOME 3 in Shell or Fallback mode. But oneiric is offtopic for here, as you know ;)08:46
IdleOneLarsTorben: 11.10 is not released yet and not supported in this channel. if you want help with 11.04 this is the correct channel. I gave you an option to be able to run 11.04.08:46
LarsTorbenOK, thanks.08:46
LarsTorbenWell, my problem with Unity is, Unity uses 2 workspaces vertical, 2 desktops horizontal08:47
oCeanLarsTorben: it is really not necessary to explain the problem. You have done so before. The bugs logged against this problem have not been solved08:47
LarsTorbenAnd if there is a window a bit more on desktop2, it maximises there, but i want to stay on 108:47

KM0201remi_: yes, but i don't have a solution to that, sorry10:43
szalX3D[AFK]: and please ask a meaningful question10:43
Sidewinder1X3D[AFK], You might look in #ubuntu-server10:43
remi_KM0201, oh, i see! thanks! i want thinking that it was a crazy thing to do lol :D10:43
dnivramakara: I'm guessing that your network connection is set to "Auto DHCP" but it's not able to find a DHCP server, hence not get an IP address and fails to connect.10:44
=== X3D[AFK] is now known as X3D

Blade20remi_, take a look at pitivi video editor10:46
remi_Blade20, yo! yeah? where? :)10:46
Blade20remi_, package manager10:46
Sidewinder1X3D, It would depend on what they were doing; if they were all streaming video, alot...etc.10:47
jetscreamerdamn that's a non-extensive db on the bot10:47
X3Dthey would be using my VPS for hosting websites10:47
X3Dand would a bandwidth spiltter help?10:47
makaradnivra: its set to 'Auto eth0'. thank you, i see an option on the ipv4 settings tab which says 'require ipv4 addressing for this connection to complete'10:47
Blade20need to find the "grep" command for a video card in "lspci"10:47
ioniteKM0201: does XFCE use gnome?10:48
dnivramakara: you're safer creating a new connection that statically configures IP addresses.10:48
KM0201ionite: it uses a lot of gnome libraries, yes10:48
remi_Blade20, i typed "pitivi" on synaptic but there is only one package, the installation one :(10:48

karniHi guys. I'm having issues booting 10.04.3 from USB key. It tells me "Unknown keyword in configuration file: gfxboot"10:48
dnivramakara: this might help a bit perhaps. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UserDays/01292011/Networking%20and%20sharing%20files%20in%20Ubuntu. It covers setting up a static IP.10:48
KM0201ionite: could be.10:48
karniI've booted it from USB key.10:49
KM0201ionite: but i don't think thats it.10:49
Blade20remi_, then i think i missed what you are looking for... you need a video editor to cut parts of videos yes?10:49
karniI have also tried re-burning the iso onto the USB, still same issue.10:49
karniI also can't find other 10.04 version than 10.04.310:49
jetscreameravidemux works10:49
karniAny hints how can I boot the 10.04.3 installer?10:49
lotuspsychjeX3D: you could etherape or wireshark network bandwith flows10:49
Blade20karni, be sure to check the md5sum10:49
karniBlade20: I'll do that, thank you10:50
KM0201karni: also, how are yo uputting it on USB?.10:50
karniKM0201: Startup Disk Creator (Ubuntu default tool)10:50
Sidewinder1karni, Did you check the iso with Md5sum, prior to burning?10:50
KM0201hmm, i've had problems w/ that one in the past.10:50
GirlyGirlkarni: try unetbootin10:50
KM0201bu tit should work.10:50
remi_Blade20, i am using Pitivi and in the timeline where i have portions of videos, i want to know how to copy and paste these portions i resized and all, copy c/v doesn't work :(10:50
KM0201try unetbootin10:50
X3Dso what would be the typical usage lotuspsychje?10:50
Blade20karni, it is always better/easer to burn Linux distro ISO in Linux10:50
karniSidewinder1: No, but that's what Blade20 suggested, and I'm doing right now.10:51
karniBlade20: I did that..10:51
karniCome on guys :) Startup Disk Creator10:51
karniI've installed it onto usb from my 11.0410:51

Blade20remi_, you may need to look into other video editing programs to find what you are looking for then.10:52
remi_Blade20, thank you for your answer10:52
lotuspsychjeX3D: bandwith usage? depends on what Sidewinder1 said earlier, how many users and what kind of stuff they do...10:52

karniBlade20: md5sum is correct :<10:53
Blade20karni, are you burning slow....10:53

karniSidewinder1: Thank you, I know what unetbootin is :)10:53
Blade20karni, are you using a Linux distro to burn it?10:54
natrixnatrix89Why does ubuntu have empathy installed by default, although it crashes all the time and pidgin is much much better?10:54
karniSidewinder1: I'm sorry, I meant, I've seen it yesterday, but indeed I asked if it run on Ubuntu ;) So thank you!10:54
X3Dlotuspsychje would you say 60gb peek, 60 gb peek per month would be enough?10:54
karniBlade20: Ok, let's start from scratch. I'm running 11.04 - I used "Startup Disk Creator" (from *UBuntu*) to burn 10.04.3 iso onto my USB. I use ubuntu for 12+ years now :)10:55
lotuspsychjeX3D: whats the purpose of 10 users gonna be?10:55
Sidewinder1X3D, With respect, as you've been told it would all depend on what the useers were doing.10:55
Blade20karni,  if you are using a linux distro get K3B10:55
karniBlade20: I've used this tool to 'burn' tens of ubuntu isos on usb sticks10:55
X3Dfor website hosting10:55
karniBlade20: I'm not burning a CD..10:55
Blade20karni, ok then you will want unetbootin10:55

Sidewinder1karni, If burning CDs, burn at the slowest speed.10:57

Blade20karni, hope it works out... :) ... i understand why.... i made the move back from 11.4 myself10:58
X3Dbut, i also dont want to slow my net speed.....10:58
karniBlade20: I'm quite happy with 11.04, I need 10.04 LTS for my aunts shop :)10:58
karniBlade20:  I do get occasional X crashes, though.10:58
Blade20karni, i just could not get used to Unity10:59
karniBlade20: I'm running UBuntu Classic on 11.04 (you knew you could do that, right?)10:59
X3Dand , also another question, am i able to connect my server to another VPS(my friends) and use both as one?10:59

KM0201ThePub: enjoy while you can, it'll be gone in 11.1011:00
X3Dnp mate!11:00
karniThePub: yup, I didn't get used to Unity yet, so I'm running plain old classic gnome desktop11:00
KM0201karni: only thing that sucks, is when 11.10 hits.11:01
KM0201that wont be an option11:01
ThePubUnity sucks arse, someday they'll realize it :)11:01
X3Dwell thenif it doesnt matter, neither does making silly statements....11:01
Blade20karni, over 90% of what i do is media on here... and with the move to windows 7 (fail!) i decided to come back to linux... :) so i love studio for the media11:01
oCeanX3D: move on please11:01
lotuspsychjethe unity thread comming up11:01
X3Dwhy dont you define your life?11:01
X3Ddefine this, define that......smh11:01
karniBlade20: ah! great to hear :) I now use Windows 7 like.. twice a year ;)11:02
KM0201ThePub: even if they realize unity sucks.. Gnome 3, sucks just as bad.. my point?  Embrace the horror.. you're gonna have to learn a new GUI>>> :) (i recommend LXDE)11:02
makaradnivra: thanks for the link. The problem for me is that all of these require ubuntu to be connected to the Internet in the first place to download the special program that will allow network access - in this case Samba. I don't understand how Ubuntu can ship without these seemingly critical applications. If I rely on a mobile broadband connection for instance and I can't get that working, then it means I have to connect to another computer, but now I always ha11:02
makarave to have a special, which I can't get because I don't have Internet. Isn't this shortsighted of Canonical to not include these in the distro? What network apps are there I can use out of the box? Is there a list?11:02
ThePubKM0201: nah, KDE will be a better choice.11:02
Blade20karni, i built this computer for windows 7 lol... 7 just is not stable enough for me11:03
dnivramakara: that link talks about both "networking" and "sharing". you need samba for "sharing".11:03
KM0201ThePub: i'd rather have my eyes gouged out than use KDE... honestly, if my choice was unity, gnome 3, KDE... i'd use Windows... i hate those 3 that much (and i loved gnome 2.x)11:03
karniBlade20: :D11:03
Blade20years ago... i used Ubuntu... had my computer on for over 6 months without a restart lol11:04
lotuspsychjeThePub: i would rather prefered if they kept the option open to install gnome classic or run unity(not as login choice)11:04
oCeanBlade20: please stay on topic, welcome to take chat to #ubuntu-offtopic11:04
makarai'm with you KM0201. Gnome2 is fine the way it is. Messing around with the interface is messing around with people. Its why I left Windows11:05
ThePubKM0201: can you give me one truely honest reason why KDE4 is worse than Gnome?  I dislike KDE myself, but really Gnome is doing the same thing but with less configuration options.  Except now you're forced to use a "shell" for gnome.11:05
oCeanThePub: this is not a discussion channel11:05
lotuspsychjelets move the untiy topic to #ubuntu-offtopic11:05
Blade20sorry ocean i kinda got all that started11:05
KM0201ThePub: honestly, i hate gnome(again, 3.. not 2.x).. but myu biggest problem w/ KDE, is it's overall interface, and the fact it is SLOW.11:05
oCeanlotuspsychje: thanks11:06
karniAll right, let's see what unetbootin has to say.11:06
lotuspsychjeAnyone knows if bugs get fixxed in ubuntu default updates? or is it kept seperated?11:06
KM0201lotuspsychje: depends on the bug fix i guess11:08
karnilotuspsychje: If you've installed from sources, no. If you installed from UBuntu Software Center or PPA, yes.11:09
astraljavalotuspsychje: Bugs get fixed in all supported software. Security-related fixes are distributed in security-repo, others in -updates.11:09
karnilotuspsychje: Also, depends on what kind of updates you have 'checked' in Update Manager11:09

Sidewinder1Ooops, he's gone :-(11:28
karniBlade20: grep finds info. If you have the temperature, there's nothing to find. Does that command return the temperature? Sorry, I don't use conky, so I'm not sure why you need grep (which is a 'find' tool)11:29
ZenMasterIntegrated intel graphics. No matter what I choose, Unity being the worst all my menus are all messed up. Briefly appearing and dis appearing as the mouse goes over the,11:29
Blade20karni, in conky i can not use the aticonfig.... but if i can get the same info with grep i can use that in conky11:29

karniBlade20: do you need administrator privileges to run aticonfig?11:30
Blade20karni, no11:30

karniBlade20: Since aticonfig is just any command like grep, why can't you use aticonfig in conky :<? /me is completely lost11:30

karniBlade20: I'm guessing that execi executres the following command every 5 seconds11:32
Blade20karni, i'll give it a try :)11:32
karniBlade20: if so, replace sensors | grep "temp2" | cut -d "+" -f2 | cut -c1-2 with your ati command11:32

karniBlade20: I've no idea. It's ASUS K52J, lemme check.11:48
karniBlade20: NVIDIA GeForce 310M (1GB)11:48
wols_karni: install the nvidia restricted drivers? or do you have hybrid graphics?11:49
Blade20karni, wols_ is the nvidia man... :)11:49

kiloblasterhi everyone!11:52
kiloblasteris there someone that has a minute for me pls ?11:53
wols_kiloblaster: ask your real question and skip the fluff in the future11:53
kiloblasteri got an asus 1015pn and i want to install ubuntu 11.04 on it without removing windows11:54
jribkiloblaster: put ubuntu disk in, follow on-screen directions11:55
Sidewinder1kiloblaster, This site should answer all of your questions: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/index.php11:55
vishwai installed natty on my pc and facing problem with suspend and hibernate. is there any solution for this ?11:57
kiloblasterif i install it in windows or using wubi it will go slower right?11:57
irk3zkiloblaster maybey :D11:58
jribkiloblaster: I'd recommend installing ubuntu to its own partition (just boot the cd)11:58
kiloblasterwill it give me the dual boot?11:58
wols_kiloblaster: if you install it to a separate partition, yes it will11:59
Sidewinder1kiloblaster, With all due respect to the developers, avoid WUBI, like the plague. :-)11:59
jribkiloblaster: if you choose that option, sure11:59
wols_it will with wubi too.11:59
karniwols_: heh.. good knews is that the broken resolution was a one time thing (first run after installation). Next two boots work fine. I really hope it was a one time thing, but I don't believe in miracles. Rather a bug. Anyhow, thanks for reaching out a helpful hand.11:59
wols_but I agree with Sidewinder1, don't use wubi if you can avoid it11:59
Sidewinder1wols_, :D11:59
kiloblasterithink i will avoid that... so now i will 1. use gparted to give ubuntu some free space...2. install into that... and when i will boot i will have the option to chose winzozz or ubuntu right?12:00
Sidewinder1vishwa, Did you partition a "swap" partition?12:01
karnikiloblaster: Right, it will give you choice.12:01
astraljavaSidewinder1: From what I hear, wubi's great if you want to see how ubuntu looks like, and works. It's not a long-term solution, that's true.12:01
vishwaSidewinder1: yes12:01
karnikiloblaster: Keep in mind - if you install windows *after* you install ubuntu, it will not give you the option - Windows will overwrite grub, and you'd have to fix it then.12:01
Sidewinder1kiloblaster, Make CERTAIN you defrag your NTFS partition prior to shrinking it!12:02
kiloblasterok... imma trying it :)12:02
karnikiloblaster: You could resize it on Windows as well.12:02
Sidewinder1astraljava, Totally agree.12:02
karnikiloblaster: defrag + resize on windows (for playing with windows partition) is IMHO the safest option. it will reboot, and resize it for you. you then have space for ubuntu installation.12:03
vishwaSidewinder1: i have a swap partition12:04
Sidewinder1kiloblaster, That's why I gave you the psychocats link; it explains everything in a "how-to" format; just about anything you wanna' know.12:04
Stavacan i temporarily hide the gnome panel(s) and then get them back again after a while?12:04
karniStava: Right click -> Properties -> Autohide?12:04
kiloblasterok so i do it from windows... now i have to restart in windows back again...see ya all12:05
karniStava: you could probably use a custom command with Compiz magic to hide them temporarily, but that's a little playing.12:05
Stavakarni, alright, thanks12:05
karniSidewinder1: shrink windows partition12:05
karniSidewinder1: OIC?12:06
Sidewinder1Oh I See.12:06
karniSidewinder1: OIC :D12:06
Sidewinder1karni, Hope he defrags, first...:-(12:06
terrymakara: Hello.12:07
bernhard1when i boot the server cd 11.4 in rescue mode to be able to make an image with DD the prompt has only a few commands: i need to be able to see the harddrives first to see which to clone to which drive.12:07
Blade20karni, you said that was a dual boot you are working on right?12:07
Sidewinder1karni, If not, we'll be sending him to #windows...12:07
karniSidewinder1: even if he doesn't, windows wouldn't break itself, no worries. I mean, if you shrink it using My Computer -> Manage -> Storage sth sth -> shrinnk partition, that's rather safe.12:07
karniSidewinder1: no worries. it's safer than shrinking it with gparted. I've done partition magic many times in my life (and went through many failures as well), he'll be fine :)12:08
karniBlade20: which do you mean? I've installed 10.04.3 on the second laptop. I have 11.04 + win7 on this laptop.12:08
Sidewinder1karni, Personally I wouldn't risk it (not defragging).12:08
karniBlade20: I work on Ubuntu 100%12:08
karniSidewinder1: I wouldn't call risking it, but this is why I wrote defrag + resize on windows12:09
Blade20karni, just a heads up on win 7 sp1 is 900mb and will not install if you have linux dual boot12:09
karniBlade20: I don't know what to say.. I think it makes me laugh. Thank you :) (I use win7 for two things = college stuff and GTAIV maybe one a year, nothing else ;))12:10
karniBlade20: That's really sad..12:11
terrykarni: I have resized MS Windows partitions with all those methods as well, never lost anything yet.  (But I do defrag first, or at least check to see if a defrag has been done recently.)12:12
Blade20karni, just thought i would give you a heads up... when you try to install the sp1 update it will tell you that an unrecognized partition is on the disk and you need to remove it before sp1 can install12:13
karniterry: I did really weird things in my life. I recall resizing Vista partition manually, because windows wouldn't let it. I used fdisk from live USB to get sectors count, drop the partition, shrink ntfs system, and set up the partition manually. That was pretty hardcore, I recall :)12:13
* Sidewinder1 Is not surprised at all.12:14
karniBlade20: Ehhh... :<12:14
karniBlade20: It just makes me sad in general, the windows-only policy etc. I simply won't update, but it's certainly an issue for people who dual boot on regular basis.12:14
Blade20and that is why i run only linux in my box :)12:15
terrykarni: If you resize it with fdisk, I don't think you'll save any data.  fdisk is not a non-destructive partitioning tool.12:15
xgt001hey folks... i installed kubuntu-desktop on natty... everything runs fine but fonts look really ugly... any fix?12:15
terrykarni: But if you have free space, fdisk is fine to use to create NEW partitions.12:15
Blade20xgt001, update video drivers?12:15
karniterry: I didn't *resize* it ;) (It might have been something else, but it was a _low_ level terminal tool.). I droppped the partition boundaries manually from the partition table, resized ntfs (probably shrunk it after defrag to were the last data was), and set up the partition up again. It was the weirdest thing I ever did related to partitioning.12:16
xgt001Blade20: yes its the latest12:16
terrykarni: I usually use fdisk for partitioning.  It's simpliest most straight forward partitioning tool - quick and easy.12:18
Blade20xgt001, are you using unity or gnome clasic12:18
petsoundsxgt001: have u try setting font hinting and dpi from system settings?12:18
terrykarni: And use fdisk to read partition tables. i.e.    sudo fdisk -l12:18
xgt001petsounds: i dono how to config?12:19
karniterry: I use either fdisk or gparted. Right, same here :)12:19
chenthuhow to add to sources.list using terminal?12:20
grychenthu: sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list12:20
chenthugry: thank you12:21
petsoundsxgt001: click kickoff menu, go to system settings, font and you can configure it from there.12:21
industrialWith Ubuntu 11.04, How do I change Workspace Switcher settings? I want 9 workspaces and I want SUPER_L+1~9 to switch there (and with SHIFT for moving a window).12:21
ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)12:22
terryindustrial: 9 workspaces?  Why so many?12:22
Sidewinder1gry, I wasn't sure if nano was graphical, never used it. :-)12:22
industrialBecause I always have that.12:22
industrialterry: I always have media on 5, IRC on 8, social on 7 etc.12:23

industrialwell I do12:23
industrialso how do I do it?12:23

Sidewinder1gry, Understood :D12:24

chenthu i wanna install bitcoins i downloaded it in tar.gz form what command should i use in terminal?13:35
tensorpuddingchenthu: it can contain software that has been compiled already, or it could contain source code, or it could contain just regular text files13:35
tensorpuddingchenthu: you should be reading the instructions13:35
leighmanhow can I set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH or ZLIB_CFLAGS and ZLIB_LIBS so it's found by configure on 10.04?13:35
coz_chenthu,   right click the file and extract it13:35
chenthuwols_ , tensorpudding edbian coz_ : thank you13:35
tensorpuddingchenthu: if you want to run bitcoin there might be a better way13:36
edbianchenthu: sure13:36
jnsl_hmm when i do sshfs@myserver.com13:36
jnsl_hmm when i do sshfs@myserver.com:somedir somedir it works but when i try to fstab it says connection reset by peer13:36
coz_chenthu,   after extracting that file,, take a look inside ,, if there is a .deb  package it can be installed if not,, look for the README and INSTALL  text files13:36
EduardHello everyone13:37
edbianEduard: hi13:37
tensorpuddingchenthu: there is probably a PPA for bitcoin13:37
coz_Eduard,  hey guy13:37
fosburg_I installed 'DraftSight'  and for some reason it works when app icons are shown and if it is a pulldown menu--app won't work13:37
EduardDoes anybody know how you can add new keys in gconf-editor? Mine doesn't seem to allow me it.13:37
coz_fosburg_,  do you have link so I can take a look at that ..where to download13:37
ericthehaxso... Reinstalled linux-generic. And after a reboot everything should work again?13:38
fosburg_cos--not sure of 'link' or how it works.  there is alot about computers I don't know.13:39
fosburg_I'm mostly an application user13:40
coz_fosburg_,  what I meant was,,, where did you get the package for it?13:40
edbianfosburg_: He means a link to the website where you got that program (he assumes for some reason it did not come from the ubuntu software center)13:40
mr202hi all13:40
Eduardor, i can put my question the other way, how do u add programs to unity 2d launcher?13:40
mr202I'm having difficulties installing 11.04 LTS 32-bit on my desktop13:41
dr_willisEduard,  lauch the app, then right click on the icon and it has a keep in launcher item.. normally13:41
mr202is there anyone around who can help me?13:41
uncle_f3dormr202, what difficulties?13:41
mr202well, I can get it to boot the live-cd13:41
edbianmr202: What is the issue?13:41
mr202I then choose the installation option13:42
fosburg_It did not come from the 'Ubuntu soft ware center'  but the center did the install13:42
edbianmr202: All on one line please.  and get to the point :)13:42
mr202and after I can choose to include third-party software and download updates13:42
mr202it just seems to freeze13:42
Eduarddr_willis: omg! u saved my day!13:42
mr202i click next, and nothing happens :(13:42
dr_willisEduard,  may be time to read up on a few unity user guides  that are on the web. :)13:42
edbianmr202: I've heard about that before.  Is this machine online when the ubuntu installer is running?  (is this a liveCd or liveUSB?)13:42
marriedman624I have Karmic installed on my computer with an AR5001 wireless card, I can connect to unsecured network just fine, but cannot connect to secured networks.........any know what I can do to fix this?13:42
coz_fosburg_,  right but where did you get it from,,13:43
coz_fosburg_,  if the software center installed it it means it was a .deb package  but you have to have clicked to download that from somewhere...yes?13:43
leighmanhow can I set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH or ZLIB_CFLAGS and ZLIB_LIBS so it's found by a configure file on 10.04?13:44
mr202so, I'm wondering what install option I might try to make it work... acpi=off / noapic / nolapic / ...13:44
coz_fosburg_,   open a terminal and type     draftsight13:44
fosburg_I need to quit for now--be back later,  thank you for the help13:44
mr202edbian, this machine is online13:45
mr202I'm running the install now without the quiet-option13:45
ericthehax... And sadly, that didn't work.13:45
edbianmr202: Can you take a screenshot of the installer in it's frozen state? and paste it on imageshack.us13:45
edbianmr202: ok13:45
uncle_f3dormr202: my two cents: i would try not installling third party software at installation time and install then after the system is bootable. Install just the basic stuff.13:46
mr202I think it's some hardware issue (although Win7 is working perfectly on the same box, but that doesn't mean anything)13:46
coz_marriedman624,   if no one here  has a solution , at this time,, you can also try the ##linux channel ,,,who is here depends a great deal on timezones  :)13:46
mr202okay, so it's now creating debconf-communicate fifo mechanism13:46
mr202after showing a lot of Buffer I/O errors13:46
marriedman624coz_: Thanks, didn't know about that channel, i'll try there13:46
mr202device sr0, best to check out what device it is before going on with the installation13:47
edbianmr202: device sr0 is the CD13:47
edbianmr202: Many many i/o errors are very common on liveCDs13:47
mr202but I checked the media using the menu option13:47
samtukeanyone know where bluetooth pairing data is store? not in hcid.conf, not in main.conf, not in gconf registry, so where??13:47
mr202and no problem there...13:47
uncle_f3dormarriedman624: by protected do you mean wep, or wpa?13:47
mr202oh, by the way, had the same issue on a LiveUSB of the same .iso13:48
mr202that's why I reverted back to CD's as installation media13:48
edbianmr202: the freeze or the i/o errors?13:48
mr202the freeze13:49
mr202so, I'm now finally in the graphical menu where I choose my preferred language13:49
ericthehaxGuise, I'm scared... I just got this thing the way i wanted it and all I was trying to do was figure out why my mic was incurably quiet... Would a pastebin help any? http://pastebin.com/9FCjysPQ13:49
edbianmr202: I don't remember the installer well enough to follow.  Is it now unfrozen?13:49
ericthehax*why my mic was incurably quiet, and then I broke my sound installing that13:50
mr202well, edbian , it now asks for the third-party option or the download-option...13:50
ericthehax(I'm not even awake, failtyping. sorry...)13:50
mr202so I left both unchecked and clicked 'forward'13:50
mr202and this is usually where it freezes13:50
edbianmr202: Just finish the install without doing anyting extra13:50
edbianmr202: Does it freeze regardless of the check boxes?13:50
sunzaruIs there a way to remote control my ubuntu machine, via windows...not a shell?13:50
edbiansunzaru: remote desktop :)13:51
mr202edbian, I'll now find out... I have tried all options except for checking NONE of the boxes13:51
dr_willissunzaru,  vnc  is one way.13:51
mr202that's what I did now13:51
coz_ericthehax,  according to that pastebin,, unless I am reading it incorrectly,, at the bottom on line 45   rm -rf alsa-driver-1.0.24 > /dev/null  << means the also driver was removed  so "no sound"13:51
mr202but it seems like the usual thing is happening... rotating cursor, no more...13:51
sunzaruKk tnx!13:51
kruxredownload the iso13:51
edbianmr202: haha ok :)13:51
dr_willissunzaru,  teamviewer, vnc, but ssh is worth learning to use.13:51
edbianmr202: does the rest of the liveCD work?13:52
mr202i'll try to boot it without installing13:52
mr202just running the liveCD13:52
mr202one sec13:52
max_hi, I'm missing the memtest option when booting from the ubuntu 11.04 x64 livecd. what has to be done to launch memtest - I can only access a grub console13:52
ubuntuguys give me some softwares like winsetupfromusb that work on my ubuntu plz13:52
edbianmr202: I mean right now.  Is the whole thing frozen or just the installer13:52
mr202well, i can still see the sound and the network dialogs13:53
mr202and interact with them13:53
mr202so it doesn't freeze13:53
ericthehaxcoz: I'm not awake, my brain's not working. Logic and reason tells me I should reinstall the alsa driver, but I'm not quite sure anymore13:53
mr202the installer just keeps "working" on nothing13:53
ericthehaxWhat do, bro?13:53
ubuntuguys give me some softwares like winsetupfromusb that work on my ubuntu plz13:53
dr_willisubuntu,  you could try using wine to run  winsetupfromusb13:53
ubuntuwine is really bad joke in ubuntu13:54
dr_willisubuntu,  You may have to do some googling for that, or ask in #windows for similer tools .13:54
ubuntuit doesn't work13:54
medhunterany experience with netbook Dell inspiron mini 101813:54
dr_willisubuntu,  wine works well for me for the apps i need..13:54
mr202edbian, I'm booting into live now... see if everything works there...13:54
spexiwine works nicely for me too13:54
mr202without installing13:54
ericthehaxubuntu: I dunno, I can play Touhou in wine just fine.13:54
dr_willismost of my popcap games work. :)13:54
ericthehaxI know a lot of Mac users who can't >:313:55
mr202meanwhile I'm downloading another ISO on my laptop13:55
edbianmr202: k13:55
ubuntuit keeps tell me that the file is not an uxecutable fil13:55
mr202are there any reasons NOT to try and install the 64-bit version?13:55
edbianmr202: good idea, burn slow (or use liveUSB, I recommend liveUSB if possible)13:55
edbianmr202: 64bit is fine13:55
dr_willisubuntu,  so thats your logic for it being a joke? RUn it from the command line then.. wine /path/to/whatever.exe13:55
mr202yeah, but edbian , how do I create the liveUSB from within Fedora ?13:56
dr_willisthe 'file needs to be an executable' as a security measure is a bit of a joke..13:56
mr202this laptop is running Fedora13:56
sunzaruIt would rock if steam was for ubuntu also.  There use to be something like is.  Anyone remember that?13:56
dr_willismr202,  the pendrivelinux site has a lot of  tools for that task13:56
dr_willissunzaru,  steam does work in wine. and theres some GPL variant thats steam line i recall.. i forget its name..13:56
dr_willissteam like... :)13:57

dr_willisericthehax,  thats not to say that ALL the games work..13:58
ericthehaxdr_willis: I meant liek, if they started adding native linux support13:59
samtukedoes dbus have persistent storage, like a db that it uses? if so, how do you access it? is this where bluetooth pairing data is stored?13:59
makaraanyone know how to connect two ubuntu pcs with an ethernet cable?13:59
dr_willisericthehax,  theres supposed to be a native client 'in the works' but ive not seen it mentioned in ages13:59
chrometigeron 11.04 classic "no effects"   how can I disable  recent documents ?13:59
edbianmakara: You can't unless you have a crossover cable or you use a switch13:59
mr202I've installed unetbootin13:59
dr_willismakara,  depends on the nics used. You may need a cross over cable.   then plug them in. set up static ip's and ping each other.. done..14:00
ericthehaxYeah, and they NEVER mentioned the mac client and then "oh look a mac client"14:00
makaraebdian: i have a crossover cable14:00
kekse@ubuntu: 1st, microsoft has a philosophy of not publishing their standards so it's pretty hard to code things like ntfs or an install-install-from-usb tool. 2nd why should anybody invest their time to create a tool that helps Microsoft rather than the open source community? doesn't make sense14:00
mr202thought it was only a Windows-app14:00
dr_willismakara,  if you have gb/1000 speed nic's then you dont need a crossoiver cable i belive.14:00
mr202btw, edbian, the LiveCD seems to be working if I don't choose the install option14:00
mr202have a working desktop now14:00
dr_willismakara,  plug in, set static ip,  or install a dhcp server on one.14:00
edbianmakara: as dr_willis said, set static IPs ping each other (then probably scp is easiest to pass files)14:00
kekse@ubuntu write an apeal to microsoft, say you need such a tool for GNU/Linux14:00
edbianmr202: Great :/14:00
makaradr_willis: i got as far as pinging. now i want to share the internet connection of the one with the other14:00
makarahow do i install a dhcp server?14:01
dr_willismakara,  then you need to do a bit more work.. ive not done 'ics' in years.14:01
ubottuIf you want to share the internet connection of your Ubuntu machine with other machines in the network see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet/ConnectionSharing14:01
ericthehaxbrb rebooting and praying to Raptor Jesus that this works14:01
edbianmr202: I suggest just downloading the ISO again (check the md5 sum) and make a liveUSB instead of liveCD. If the problem persists I can suggest some more things14:01
dr_willisyou as basically building your own router. :)14:01

makarain the network connections dialog there is a checkbox which says something about sharing internet connection14:02
edbianmakara: Check that box :P14:02
dr_willismakara,  Ive never used the feature. not needed to since i gave up Dialup. :)14:03
dr_willismakara,  you may need to set the dns servers, and default gateway on the remote box to be the ip# of the main box.14:04
mr202I just feel like such a noob14:04
mr202although I have been using linux for over two years14:04

dr_willisjnsl_,  thats weird.   as a dirty work around you could mount the sshfs from rc.local via a command   that runs as the user. (su username -c command) *i think*   but14:14

dr_willisjnsl_,  i cant think of why the fstab entry would be altering the permissions unles sits somehow getting ran as root.14:14
coz_GTAXL,  mm  I have seen archive rotation ,, log rotation,, not sure about "file rotation"14:15
dr_willismakara_,  let me just add that a $30 router is a handy tool to have. :)14:15

minaaai am still here without receiving any help. let me repeat for the last time? CAN ANYONE HELP ME CONFIGURE MY 3G MODEM WITH USB_MODESWITCH?15:45
coz_minaaa,   I dont have experience with that in particular,, also understand that people who may  have knowledge about it may not be online at this time,, all depends on timezones15:46
Zeikminaaa: Right click on the usb_modeswitch file and go into it's properties. Checkmark it to be an executable program. Close that window and then double click on it.15:46
Sidewinder1Zeik, You might have a look here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades#Why%20choosing%20a%20fresh%20install15:46
ksx4systemminaaa: i remember that on Debian usb_modeswitch was NOT needed on newer (afair 2.6.32+) kernels15:46
ksx4systemminaa: so, what kernel do you run? (uname -a to check) which version of Ubuntu (number please)?15:47
minaaazeik: i used chmod +x on it but it asks me for product id or device id for the 3g modem to be entered as parameter which i do not know15:47
Sidewinder1Zeik, ^ My last was in regards to your Intrepid question. ^15:47
minaaaksx4system: i am using ubuntu 10.1015:47
CozeyoCean: so jde must me updated and have deps fixed? or can i force it to install15:47
ZeikSidewinder: Thank you. But i am actually wanting Intrepid due to it being able to use EXA. I can't stand using this UXA accelleration method.15:48
Zeikminaaa: Hmm. What kind of 3G device are you using? Is it CricKet EVO 3G?15:48
minaaawhen i insert the 3g modem it shows up as cd drive on windows but it doesnt get detected as a cd drive either in ubuntu15:49
rickardHi, how do I "drag" windows to another worksspace?15:49
ksx4systemminaaa: afaics you run 2.6.35 kernel. most popular in Europe 3G modems should run perfectly even with bare bones wvdial15:49
minaaazeik: it is a hsdpa modem named visiontek15:49
Myrttiminaaa: should it?15:49
coz_rickard,   are you running compiz?15:49
rickardcompiz is installed15:49
rickardbut I cant find it when search for it15:49
coz_rickard,  is it running?15:49
coz_rickard,  this is 11.0415:50
minaaalet me give u all a picture of the 3g modem15:50
Zeikminaaa: That is called "Zero CD". It runs one time in windows to install it's drivers and then hides it's self afterwards.15:50
rickardcoz_: correct15:50
coz_rickard,  and are you using the Unity interface or classic mode?15:50
ksx4systemminaaa: cool, i can't even check what chipset it has... manufacturer's website is down15:50
rickardcoz_: I believe I use the unity.. how do i determine?15:50
Zeikminaaa: Those drivers are useless for a Linux installation. Let me look up how to run a flipswitch. I haven't done it in over 3 years. So i am lacking on memory at this point.15:51
minaaaits named visiontek15:51
coz_rickard,   Unity will have the large launcher  on the left side of the screen15:51
oCeanCozey: I think it means that, once emacs23 is installed, the dependency for cedet is already solved. That means you would have to force an install without checking for dependencies - but I'm not sure how to do that and whether you will have all dependencies solved15:51

coz_rickard,  well on that launcher is the  expo   button which will show all workspaces,, you can drag that way ,, also I believe if you  have a focused window,, shift+ctrl+alt+arrows should also move it to another workspace15:52
coz_rickard,  let me know if either of them work for you15:52

coz_rickard,  there are also other options under ccsm,,, if you have compizconfig-settings-manager installed15:54
coz_rickard,   hit alt+F2  type   ccsm15:54
Zeikminaaa: Plug it in and reboot your system. When it is back up. Check out your internet connection icon at the top of the screen. There should be an extra connection in it called "Mobile Device". Click on that to connect.15:54
minaaaksx4system: probably the indian company is geoblocking users. what a bad policy15:55
Zeikminaaa: I hate the new Ubuntu setups... I loved 8.10 and now i am stuck with 11.04. : /15:55
oCeanCozey: searching for those dependencies, results in just more posts from others having similar issues with JDE on 11.04. Unfortunately I don't see how it's solved15:55

minaaazeik: let me try your method. and i shall come back here to tell you the results15:56
CozeyoCean: that's what i've seen too. thanks !15:56

rickardis it a limit of 4 workspaces in natty?16:10
tensorpuddingyou can have more than 416:11
rickardtensorpudding, I downloaded compiz-config-manager.. why isnt there default?16:12
Benkinoobyrickard, that does not depend on natty (=ubuntu version) but in your graphical user interface, wich is in your case, unity, i guess. either way, nearly all interface that support multiple workspaces, support far more than 4 workspaces16:12

k3v1ndbsantos, AVG has a good liveCD that can be installed onto a pendrive. I use it for virus removal. It's linux based.16:44
escottdbsantos, it may depend on the bios. to make it bootable with certain bioses you may need to have fat or eltorrito.16:44
escottbernhard1, have you tried running fsck manually16:44
zteam_dbsantos, if your job uses Windows you won't be to ready a usb stick with anything else than FAT or NTFS (unless you are installing some third-party driver)16:44
ciezrdbsantos: a neat trick, create a folder named "autorun.inf" on the fat32 pendrive16:45

zteam_dbsantos,  well you could just that make it so any changes you made on the stick will be resetted once you reboot16:48
The_Pugilistwell the thing is lion42, i am setting up an ftp server where each users' home directory needs to be encrypted16:49
zteam_dbsantos, that way any virus you will get can't survive once you restarted it16:49
Abhijitlion42, ok.16:49
lion42The_Pugilist, sorry, no idea about that.16:49
The_Pugilistno worries16:49
dr_willisThe_Pugilist:  you are worried about security enough to encrypt the dirs.. but using ftp? wouldent ssh be a better idea from a security point of view?16:49
OmegaForteMornin'. Any standing issues?16:49
Deamosseraphyeah..SSH would be better if security was a problem16:49
dbsantosok... about the health of filesystem on a pendrive, what's the better (FAT, FAT32 or NTFS)?16:50
Deamosseraphand for the encryption, I would have done it at install TBH16:50
The_Pugilistwell yes, dr_willis, but i am looking to implement a remote backup service, and this requires me to use ftp/sftp16:50
zteam_dbsantos, but there possible are ways to format with another filesystem too, but I'm not sure if you will be able too boot from a stick with ext2 for example16:50
DeamosseraphFAT32 is normal on a pendrive16:50
AbhijitDeamosseraph, ntfs or fat3216:50
AbhijitDeamosseraph, not for health but for compatibility16:50

chamunksI am trying to RSYNC a massive directory 450 gigs of tens of thousands of files I want to make this go as smoothly as possible is there a way to log the process for resuming incase of failure and such?17:12
chamunksOr even a way to make rsync break up the job for me into smaller parts.17:12
escottchamunks, thats the point of rsync is that it is easy to resume, just keep running it until it says its done17:12
dr_willis450gb is massive? :) thats my wallpaper collection...17:12
Dulakchamunks: rsync will automatically resume17:12
dr_willisrsync is sort of amazin in how usefull  and thought out it is.17:13
Dulakchamunks: it uses a pretty nifty comparison algo to only transfer the differences, so it doesn't have to restart from scratch17:13
OmegaFortechamunks, I think rsync has super powers.17:13
chamunksescott, Dulak, even after a system reboot or something?  where is it logging this information to? can i force it to log everything to a file somewhere other than the source / dest?17:13
dr_willisYou could look into fsarchiver if  you are  more into  making an 'archival' backup. vs a 'clone'17:13
rumpe1kevin_, the default for mount is to not convert the filename-encodings. That's the problem i guess.17:13
escottchamunks, you could send its output to a file, but there is no point. rsync is designed to handle resumes. it will compare the contents of the remote and local copies and send the differences17:14
Dulakchamunks: it doesn't log anything, it compares things on both sides of the connection and only transfers what is different, so it can resume anytime, anywhere.17:14

chamunksescott, good to know.  but will it still output to the command line as well?  this xfer is going to take days so i wont be watching it.17:21
escottkevin_, if you can figure out what encoding the ntfs system has you can try different versions of the mount command until it works17:22
chamunksescott, but i will be checking up on it occasionally to make sure it hasn't broken.17:22
escottchamunks, if you want to see it at the same time you probably need to use tee17:22
escottkevin_, i don't know much about ntfs but it might require the specification of a codepage17:24

Pisagorcause i am really helpless17:58
dr_willisPisagor:  so what are you going to uninstall? :)  make a new user see if affects them the same way. if NOT then its a user setting issue.17:58
salvatoremongy: thank you, I not found it, now I read and try again :)17:58
dr_willisif it affects ALL users the same way. then its a system type setting issue.17:58
Pisagorwell i am gonna uninstall the default browser, then what may come next17:59
Pisagorwill it open the link "in terminal"17:59
dr_willisPisagor:  you would proberly have better luck  just deleting all your users settings.17:59
dr_willisif its a user setting issued.17:59
Pisagorand i will keep on uninstaling until it opens in a proper file browser - yes i am a narrow minded one -17:59
dr_willisgo ahead then.. have fun. i gave a  test to see if its a user or system issue...17:59
wols_Pisagor: I suspect you will uninstall a lot of dependencies, and you will break your installation even worse18:00
Pisagorwols_, do not scare me18:00
wols_Pisagor: the problem is not your browser...18:00
Pisagorwhat is it then18:00
dr_willisa 'user setting' issue........18:00
wols_it's the program that calls the browser18:00
Pisagorokay, knowing this makes me feel better...18:00
wols_Pisagor: a belief is not knowledge18:01
dr_willisthe default filetype for open folder may be set to  the browser. instead of  the 'open folder..' file manager app.,18:01
Pisagorokay and do you know where i can set these18:01
dr_willisNot sure about Lubuntum, but in Ubuntu, the 'ubuntu-tweak' app can reset the users settings back to defaults.18:01

auronandacePisagor: how did you make the shortcut?18:06
Pisagorwith the help of nautilus18:06
Pisagori created the "short link" in the folder itself then i copied it to desktop18:06
Pisagorand it was working well for a while18:06
auronandacePisagor: until when?18:07
escottzroysch, it must be unmounted, but most fs can be resized easily. i would be more worried about resizing the partition itself18:07

Gasseustheadmin mmk thanks19:04
dr_willisSpaceghost:  downloaded from where?19:05
Gasseusescott does unity still use gconftool-2? I thought it moved to something completely different...19:05
Spaceghostdr_willis: megaupload, hotfile and similars, supossing that I made all the necessary for start the download (captha and that thing)19:06
escottGasseus, unity in 11.04 is still based on gnome2 so yes. not sure what will happen with 11.10 it may have to be something gsettings related19:06
Spaceghostthere is another detail and it's that I would like use while I am watching it a subtitles downloaded separetely19:06
jribSpaceghost: just point your player to the file (for firefox this file ends in .part while it downloads)19:06
SpaceghostI don't know if it will become it more hard19:06
Gasseusescott Well, the current 11.10 repos have gnome3 rather then gnome 2.3019:06
Spaceghostto sincronize19:06
dr_willisSpaceghost:  not really noticed a way to do it.  there could be a lot of potential issues.   but i rarely get videos from such sources. I did see where Utorrent3 had a 'stream' option to watch as you download.19:07
theadmindr_willis: utorrent on Linux won't have that.19:07
theadmindr_willis: I mean, the only way to control it is via a web interface19:07

escottapapa, so you are looking for things like press detect, output (maybe headphone drive), something non-digital (unless you have spdif headphones) and toggle on the OUTPUT checkbox19:16

apapaok when i unplug the analog headphones..something logs19:17

Dulakbullgard4_: my normal setup is swap 2x ram, / 25 gigs, rest to /home, for a workstation19:18
theadminbullgard4_: 20GB for / is enough.19:18
escottapapa, you can run hda tool in an analyze mode. usually when you plug/unplug the headphone there is supposed to be some process which sees that happen and toggles off the output flag on the speakers and on the flag on the headphone, but it may not be looking at the correct pin19:18

billymazeI just got a new external hard drive and I want to use truecrypt to encrypt some data.  However, I'm not sure if I should use an encrypted container or make an encrypted partition.  Is one better than the other?19:30
billymazeIf so, why?19:30
apapaescott, it's not exactly the same model number as listed...19:32
lion42It'd probably be easier to just encrypt the whole drive, especially if you're going to use a significant portion of it for sensitive data19:32
lion42but I don't know the safety of encrypted containers.19:32

corinthThe touchpad sensitivity in the mouse settings don't seem to be doing anything for me....does anyone have any suggestions?19:33

lion42corinth, have you tried searching "ubuntu yourmodelcomputer touchpad" on google or similar?19:33
Dulakbillymaze: It depends on usage, if you are going to have it mounted most of the time, the partition is probably best.  If it will only rarely be mounted, the container probably makes more sense19:33

herrgabrielCoJaBo, try removing KDE and installing GDE... (scnr)20:29
SeveasCoJaBo, fix your memory20:29
astraljavaSeveas: Trademarked by Myrtti. :) Thank her. :)20:29
herrgabrielAh, but thanks Seveas. Will do a quickclean now :)20:29
escottastraljava, agreed. Zorgs you have do download a different iso image from ubuntu.com for 64bit20:29
CoJaBoherrgabriel:  yeh, I don't think its kde related :P20:29
wrtiiiyeats: Ok So why is the default installation trying to find something that does not exist?20:30
endipAnyone have any idea why my lan card is recognized correctly in Ubuntu, but I can't get wired networking to work?20:30
CoJaBoSeveas:  crashes immediately in startup, if it was that bad a mammary error, it'd effect other apps...20:30
Seveasendip, how far does it get? No link, no ip address, no interface?20:30
SeveasCoJaBo, one would think20:30
yeatswrtiii: eh?  I'm seeing "Network is unreachable" which you'd need to fix before aptitude will work20:31
SeveasCoJaBo, mv ~/.gimp-2.6 ~/.gimp-2.6-backup && sudo apt-get install --reinstall gimp20:31
Myrttiastraljava, Seveas :-D20:31
Seveassee if that fixes it20:31
StevenRendip: does ifconfig -a show eth0 ? if so, try sudo ethtool eth0 and see if a link is detected20:31
CoJaBoSeveas:  i.e., before gui even.. total exec time is 840 ms start to crash -_-'20:31
endipSeveas, No link (in other words, the "wired network" option in the indicator in the panel is grayed out?), no IP address, and I don't know about interface. Is there a command I can run for that?20:31
wrtiiiyeats: I'm seeing the file it's requesting on the far end not existing?20:31
endipStevenR, ifconfig - a shows eth0, yes.20:31
Seveasendip, the commands StevenR just gave20:32
StevenRendip: so what does sudo ethtool eth0 say?20:32
endipSeveas, thanks20:32
yeatswrtiii: ah - okay - that probably means the mirror is out of sync - try changing mirrors20:32
wrtiiiyeats: What is network unreachable supposed to mean then?20:32
endipStevenR, k, give me a second I'm chatting on a different computer.20:32
yeatscan you ping anything?20:32
yeatswrtiii: ^^20:32
Seveaswrtiii, that either the computer is not connected to the internet or the server on the other end is down20:32
wrtiiiyears: How do I change to a different mirror?20:33
Seveaswrtiii, gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list20:33
Seveaschange ca.archive to uk.archive20:33
Seveasthat one generally works20:34
CoJaBoSeveas: It doesn't get far enough to create the .gimp dir. Waiting on the reinstall now20:34
yeatswrtiii: or choose a mirror close to you from here: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archivemirrors20:34
endipStevenR, Here's the output from ifconfig lspci http://pastebin.com/r1FrAzND20:35
Seveasyeats, though that's generally a good idea, I always like to use the canonical archive when debugging. It's up most of the time.20:35
CoJaBoSeveas: Yeh, still segfaults after the reinstall :/20:35
endipStevenR, give me a sec to run sudo ethtool eth0, k20:35
yeatsSeveas: good thought20:36
SeveasCoJaBo, install the gimp-dbg package and run it with gdb. See where it crashes20:36
SeveasCoJaBo, also, pastebin the output of 'apt-cache policy gimp'20:36
endipStevenR, sudo ethtool eth0 returned that ethtool is not installed. (Command not found). I don't have an internet connection on that computer so give me a second while I install it manually.20:37
endipethtool that is20:37
Seveasethtool is not installed by default? Damn...20:37
astraljavaendip: You can also do `grep NetworkManager /var/log/syslog`, and see whether it even recognizes the interface.20:38
