funkeyyHi all! i accidentally installed Adobe Acrobat Reader from a packet i downloaded on the adobe-Homepage.. now i want to deinstall it, since document viewer suits my needs more than AR does.. how can i deinstall it? i couldnt find it in synaptic PM...?00:03
szalfunkeyy: of course not if you installed it from something that is not a .deb00:04
KaZumaKatanyway, alsamixer says HDMI audio out not muted, but has no volume sliders. What to do?00:04
funkeyyokay so how can i deinstall it then?00:04

escottfunkeyy, remove it with rm00:05

DatzHi, I'm wondering if there is a config for logrotate which dictates actions for individual logs00:06
escottfunkeyy, if adobe did things correctly it should all be in /opt00:07

urlin2uszal, yep, we are  assuming that the user has a clue.00:08
funkeyyszal, i cant view that page00:09
szalurlin2u: obviously he hasn't, otherwise he hadn't installed Adobe Reader directly from Adobe in the first place ;)00:09
szalfunkeyy: then create a forum account00:09
urlin2utommyfun, you don't want to do that.00:09
escotttommyfun, you cant actually do so as packages conflict00:09

shbk_rudoes anybody know library for c/c++ to catch pressing of keys like ctrl+shift+foo or fn+f7  etc.   ?00:12
tommyfunk, thaks00:12

escott!root | fizy[laptop]00:27
ubottufizy[laptop]: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo00:27

EgyParadoxGuest56414:   runHELI-X.sh not   runHELI-X64.sh00:28
escottfizy[laptop], a init=/bin/bash shouldn't be asking you for a password. but since it is you can use a livecd and try to fix things there00:28
WarOpwhats your problem val_maio00:29
mjbraunI'm a wee bit confuzzled. I'm trying to understand all the services running in my stock 10.0.4 LTS config. One of the services is "console-setup" (service --status-all shows it as "?") but why is the config tool running as a service?00:29

fosburgany help trouble shooting 'unity'?00:32
norcThis is totally horrid. Why cant I specify an image in /etc/default/grub - why do I have to specify a magic number that can change depending on what kernels I install/deinstall?00:32
WarOpvale_maio so if you connect it directly into the computer can you print to it all00:32
escottfizy[laptop], what do you mean selecting the root shell? are you trying to login as root in recovery mode?00:32
escottnorc, what do you want to accomplish? you want to boot a specific version of linux?00:32
vale_maioWarOp: via USB it works very well00:33
vale_maioand HPlip reognize it as well00:33
urlin2uArengorn, from the pm page.  Parted Magic - LiveCD/USB with it's only purpose being partitioning hard drives.00:33

Arengornwith a buch of folders inside00:33
urlin2uArengorn, burn it to a cd.00:33
WarOparengorn mount the iso image00:33
vale_maioonly if I choose to connect it via USB, when HPlip asks to me00:34
Arengornhow00:34
fizy[laptop]escott: yet. that is the only shell option in recovery mode00:34
WarOpthen access folders or burn it to cd as image then access it00:34
WarOpgmoutiso00:34
fizy[laptop]escott: yes*00:34
escottArengorn, burn it/loop mount it00:34
WarOpis a mounting program00:34
norcescott: I have a specific kernel I want to load on a server. I have a variety of kernels installed already, and the way I see it, to set a new default I'd have to COUNT the line in which the kernel I want would appear in grub, and insert that in /etc/default/grub, run update-grub, verify that its truly the right one00:34
urlin2uWarOp, why would yu want to mount it?00:34
WarOpto save burning it to a dvd or cd00:34
norcescott: it's just unusable. I want to specify an initrd, a kernel image as the default bootimage. Not a magic number that is dependent on the entries in /etc/grub.d/00:34
WarOpunless its already on a cd or dvd to access the folders withing00:34
urlin2uWarOp, that makes no sense, but okay.00:35
Arengorni mount it but thers jut a buch of folders inside it00:35
fosburgcant get 'unity' to my desktop--any suggestions?00:35
WarOpso say you have a iso image on HD, mount the image with virtual drive then acess folders inside00:35
escottnorc, the idea is that you change the filenames in /etc/grub.d and always pick #1 because that is your most recent version of whatever you want (windows or linux etc)00:36
intraderOops, further problem - on second laptop I find that the 'Software index is broken' - While finishing it is reinstalling grub.cfg Is there a problem with Synaptic that causes this?00:36
DatzI meant to say I didn't see one in man logrotate, but I'll check again00:36
urlin2uArengorn, what do you want to do with partmagic?00:36
norcescott: What is #1 then? The lowest number?00:36
escottfizy[laptop], boot the livecd and chroot in. im puzzled that you cant get in with single boot00:37
norcescott: I have a feeling that I shouldn't change the files that apt has put there.00:37
norcescott: apart from 40_custom00:37
Arengorni have an hd configured to mac i want to use it with windows and i dont know how i thought partition should be the anwser00:37
escottnorc, first entry, but grub-mkconfig iterates through the scripts in /etc/grub.d in filename order00:37
escottnorc, so you could add your own custom as 06 and it would be the first menu entry00:38
urlin2uArengorn, then you want to burn the ISO to a cd, or load a thumb with like unetbootin, so you can boot partmagic and use it.00:38
norcescott: Since 06_foo is already the default kernel, I'm assuming I should simply copy 10_blah (which is the one I want) to 05_bar ?00:38
chrissbxI'm still not able to boot mythbuntu. wols: setting these in mythbuntu and hitting return will bring up a blinking underline cursor in the top left corner and a second later the reboot. In XBMC, the kernel comes up with a single message: "Kernel panic - not synching: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)";00:38
Arengornya00:38
fizy[laptop]escott: by single boot do you mean normal boot? i can for the time being. but my laptop has serious display issues, and in the event that i screw it up, i want to be able to login and undo it. being root doesnt matter. its just the only option i have00:38
norcescott: naturally that would fail as soon as apt installs a kernel with a lower number.00:38
chrissbxwols: I've now also tried USB booting from a flash stick, same problem, "Unable to mount root fs fon unknown-block(104,1)"00:39
escottnorc, 05 is the theme for me, but yes thats the basic idea00:39
norcescott: Yeah so since 05 is the theme already, should I rename this as well? (are you beginning to see how horrid this is?)00:39
chrissbxI guess I should try normal ubuntu now.00:39
escottnorc, my numbers are different from yours i go 00,05,10 etc00:39
cntbplaying with gadgets anyone knows / used radar map on weather.com00:39
urlin2uArengorn, a regular ubuntu live cd has gparted on it same as partmagic.00:39
cntb?00:40
norcescott: I have a feeling that if I touch any of that, apt will revert those settings in a while.00:40
=== mat__ is now known as Guest40259
norcescott: And that would be rather unpleasant - to say the least.00:40
escottfizy[laptop], no i mean single mode boot (its part of the boot options to the recovery boot)00:40
Arengornbut i cant change anything at this hd00:40
escottnorc, apt should ask before overwritting, but you can install something like etckeeper00:40
urlin2uArengorn, you have to boot a partitoner like the two mentioned here to change the partitions on the hd.00:41
escottfizy[laptop], you should look into how to use a livecd to get a chroot control00:41
Arengorni know but there is no options like 'format ' at this HD00:41
Guest40259I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 and I'm getting weird password bugs, my user passwords is hardly recognized (i.e. I need to do the same sudo command over and over until it works)... Anyway idea someone?00:41

Guest40259Also, I have lot of error in the log files00:42
TheHypnotist_Guest15721, fat fingers?00:42
norcescott: Time to reboot and *pray* nothing breaks. :)00:42
jribTheHypnotist_: that would be my guess as well00:42
urlin2uArengorn, your leaving out a bit of information, such as where and where and what your doing and with what.00:42
fosburgcan i get some help with setting up 'unity' as my desktop?00:42
fizy[laptop]escott: i just think its weird that noone at ubuntu central has tested out recovery mode. its asking me for a nonexistant password00:42
cntbwill chk later see if anyone takes my q00:42
jribfizy[laptop]: it only asks you for a password if you've set a password for root00:42
escottfizy[laptop], something else must be wrong, recovery mode should drop you directly into a shell without getty00:43

Arengornits named as /dev/sdc00:45
urlin2uArengorn, so when you right click the partition on the external you have no delete option.00:45
escottArengorn, if you have partitioned it then just manually call sudo mkfs.ntfs /dev/sdc100:46

escottGuest40259, but in your logs is it conversation error that is causing the could not identify. a conversation error would be like a ctrl-c hitting the process that is asking for the password00:50

escottnorc, well do you know how to use a livecd/chroot to fix things00:55
escottGuest40259, could it be timeout related00:55
ArengornHow do i run stuff as root?00:55
Odd-rationale!sudo | Arengorn00:55
ubottuArengorn: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo00:55
urlin2uArengorn, sudo is your best route.00:56
norcescott: Nope. As I said it's a server located somewhere in France. :-)00:56
escottArengorn, since this is an hfs+ disk it might have a gpt partition. what version of gparted were you using?00:56
norcescott: I knew I should have used kexec. Heh.00:56
escottnorc, thats no good00:56

Arengorn0.7.000:59
escottArengorn, thats fairly old. it might be that gparted was writing an mbr partition on a gpt disk00:59

Arengornwhat i do?00:59
urlin2uArengorn, take a screen shot of that HD in gparted, and image n=bin it.01:00
shbk_rudoes anybody know library for c/c++ to catch pressing of keys like ctrl+shift+foo or fn+f7  etc.   ?01:01
escottArengorn, there is a command line tool "gdisk" which would be able to tell you if the disk has gpt and mbr partitions01:01
Arengornsent01:02
urlin2uArengorn, post the image, I don't take images that way.  http://imagebin.org/index.php?page=add01:03
escottArengorn, if you open the disk utility and look in the first column next to partitioning what does it say01:03
Odd-rationaleseanmc98: as foar as I know, there is no (workable) one. Although dragon dictate is reported to work under wine.01:05

fiberHi, I have an acer timelinex with "Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset HD Audio", and I can't seem to get my mic working!  I can get audio output working fine and the external mic works, just not the internal.  Does anyone have any recommendations?01:10
edbian!ask | krwagwithzach01:10
ubottukrwagwithzach: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)01:10
krwagwithzachive got skype and its not recognizing my mic01:10
Arengorni clicked creat a partition table and it sad error01:11
krwagwithzachbut its recognizing my webcam which the mic is built into01:11
coz_fiber,  first thing i would check in open a terminal  type    alsamixer   , see if any of the sliders are down or muted for headphones01:11
edbiankrwagwithzach: Does the mic work with sound recorder?01:11
Arengornthen i had 298gb unalocated i tryed to created new/ntfs and then thats it01:11
xXPhenomXx_Ive got the same issue with Skype on Ubuntu 11.04, the mic doesnt work01:11
krwagwithzachyes it works with audacity01:11
norcfiber: Have you checked whether the proper channel us unmuted in alsamixer for example?01:11
coz_Arengorn,  are thise physycally separate drives or are the partitions01:11
urlin2uedbian, I think there are overlapping partitions the fat was mounted now it isn't.01:11
escottfiber, http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Help_To_Debug_Intel_HDA01:11

coz_fiber,  mm ok,, not sure then,, I am not the best person for sound issues,, did you check also in the #pulseaudio and #alsa channels ? ..yes?01:13
coz_RocketLauncher,   yeah I am not finding anything that might give an easier way to adjust headphone volumes  ,,  maybe gnome-alsamixwer but that is also manually01:14
urlin2uArengorn, can you right click the one unidetified partition and delete?01:14
RocketLauncheraw01:14
coz_RocketLauncher,  I am still looking,,, you could also google,,,  ubuntu 11.04  headphone volume controls01:14
Arengornhey guys something interesting the hdd still works on linux and all the files are there :) :(01:15
urlin2uArengorn, when mounted the fat shows, but I think you have overlapping partitions, pull off what you ned then unmount it and delete .01:16

Coty91I recently received a new laptop (Acer Aspire 4730z) that has bluetooth capabilities. However, after installing 11.04 the bluetooth isn't recognized. I'm not too sure what to do about it though. Any help would be much appreciated!  :)01:18
dr_willisCoty91,  I would start by checking the forums for that exact make laptop.01:18
Coty91Not seeing any forums related to it.01:20
coz_RocketLauncher,  yeah I am still not finding anythin,, I was hoping someone had made a new applet or something for headphone volume controls01:20
RocketLauncher10.10 worked fine01:20
RocketLauncheri dont know if i did anything wrong here ot not when installing xfce01:20
RocketLauncheri'm using gnome now though, didnt really like xfce01:21
Arengornnope01:21
diamondsso I'm trying to adjust the opacity on windows...01:22
th0rRocketLauncher: you shouldn't have dumped xfce so fast, I have a slider in the volume control for headphoens01:22
rypervencheI use Xfce :) It's nice.01:23
diamondsI have this utility compizconfig settings manager01:23
urlin2udiamonds, you can do it in compiz01:23
diamondshow?01:23
coz_diamonds,  open it,, on the left you will see a vertical list of categories01:23
diamondsI have the opacity option open and it appears to be linked to alt+ button 401:23
diamondsbut what's button 4?01:23
dr_willisdiamonds,  mouse wheel01:24
urlin2udiamonds, figure it I would have to myself but I know that is where it's done. ;)01:24
dr_willishold alt,. move wheel....01:24
diamondsthanks!01:24
diamondsit wasn't working before... :/01:24
urlin2udr_willis, I forgot about that.01:24
coz_alt+mouse 4 & 5  shold make a window transparent01:24
dr_willisa debateable usefull feature..... :)01:25
coz_diamonds,  if you  need help spicifically for compiz  you can me and a few other in the #compiz channel01:25
diamondsthanks01:25
diamondsone other thing...01:26
diamondswhen I alt tab, the windows are in a fixed order01:26
ArengornITS WORKIN FORMATATION ON NTFS IS WORKING01:26
ArengornITS FORMATING :) :)01:26
coz_diamonds,  explain "fixed order"01:26
dr_willisArengorn,  good for you.. we dont need a play by play analisis... :)01:26
diamondshow do I make them "most recently used first"01:26
diamondscoz_: I mean if I opened compiz config last, it is always last.01:27
diamondsI'd prefer that if I alt+tab FROM compiz, then alt+tab once, I'01:27
Arengornand we dont need ur arrogance01:27
diamondsm back to compiz01:27
coz_diamonds,  ok you are using either  the application switcher or the static applications switcher plugins01:27
dr_willisdiamonds,  the plugins in ccsm that handle the alt-tab have numerous settings you can tweak, theres also differnt switchers you can use.01:27
coz_diamonds,  there are other options,, for example,,, the "Scale" plugin01:27
diamondscoz_: how can I figure which one?01:27
coz_diamonds,  well in ccsm as I mentioned,, on the left are the list of categories,, click on the " Window management"  category01:28
intraderAnyone, I have a laptop where I was upgrading to 11.04 - I fount it with the Caps Lock light blinking, and the hardrive light on. Power down and try to reboot gets a Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown block.01:28
coz_diamonds,   there you will find  several switchers,, including scale,01:29
urlin2uintrader, was this a upgarde from another distro?01:29
coz_oy01:29
escottintrader, sure sounds like the drive is toast. have you booted a live cd and run fsck01:29
intraderurlin2u, yes, from 10.1001:29
diamondssorry...01:29
intraderescott, I have 11.04 on a stick - what is next?01:30
diamondsI hit windows key, that opened the search thing but didn't focus on it so when I tried to close it I closed empathy :/01:30
coz_diamonds,   ok in ccsm.. on the left column.. click the "Window mangement"  category01:30
diamondsok looking at cconfig > windows now01:30
urlin2uintrader, escott makes a good suggestion, beyond that I would see if the HD mounts from a live cd and pull out what you need and do a fresh install.01:30
coz_diamonds,   enable the  "Scale" plugin01:30
escottintrader, boot it. fsck your disks, check the smart status, verify the basic hardware is functioning. then start looking at the boot process01:30
diamondscoz_: ok, it was on already01:31
coz_diamonds,  the default  bindings are 2,,one is upper  right corner of the screen , meaning  push the cursor there  and if you have more than one window open you will see the effect  of it01:31
diamondslooking at the settings...01:31
escottintrader, if the hardware is good and it just hung in the midst of the upgrade you could either reinstall or chroot in and attempt to continue the upgrade01:31
diamondscoz_: this is not happening (top right hotspot)01:32
coz_diamonds,  ok try  shift+super+s01:32
diamondswhat's the super?01:32
diamondswindows key?01:32
coz_diamonds,  yes01:32
coz_diamonds,  the original name for that key is "Super"01:32
JZApplesI have successfully created a software RAID array using mdadm but am unable to write to the array due to permissions.  I am able to copy files to it if I use sudo in the terminal.  Can someone point me in a good directions for setting up the permissions on the array?01:32
mcurranthe key with the windows logo, between Ctr and Alt01:32
escottJZApples, permissions on the array are just like permissions on any filesystem01:33
diamondsI thought it was "meta" :p01:33
diamondsanyway01:33
diamondsthat does nothing01:33
diamondsit opens the dock01:33
diamondser..... not dock but, launcher?01:33
escottJZApples, you probably don't have permissions to write to the mountpoint01:33
coz_diamonds,  and the original logo for that key is a diamond  but that is just trivia :)01:33
dr_willismeta = another name for alt.. or was it ctrl..01:33
JZApplesescott, i realize that, but i'm new to linux.  Where do i set that up at.01:33
coz_diamonds,  ah  are you running Unity?01:33
escott!permissions | JZApples01:33
ubottuJZApples: An explanation of what file permissions are and how they can be manipulated can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions01:33
diamondscoz_: yes, shouldn't I be?01:34
diamondsIt came standard...01:34
coz_diamonds,  thats fine lets change that keybinding01:34
escottJZApples, you probably just want to sudo chown user:user /media/array_mountpoint01:34
diamondsis it secretly shit?01:34
intraderescott, urlin2u: I will do as you suggest - how do I determine if hardware is good? the windows partition gives me Boot disk failure. I will boot the 11.04 from the stick and then please help01:34
diamonds!language | diamonds01:34
ubottudiamonds, please see my private message01:34
JZApplesescott, I'm assuming chown grants owner to that user?  That is exactly what I am looking for.  Thank you very much.01:34
coz_diamonds,  wait  try shift + alt + up arrow01:34
escottJZApples, change owner01:35
urlin2uintrader, I think escott will know more about checking the hardware.01:35
diamondscoz_: that did it!01:35
diamondswhat is that setting called?01:35
diamondsanyway that's not what I want, I'm talking alt-tab01:35
coz_diamonds,  that is the keybinding for scale01:35
JZApplesescott, that worked like a charm.  Thanks a million.01:35
JZApplesescott01:35

escottintrader, once the live cd boots run fsck /dev/sdX# whatever the disk partition is. then open the disk utility and find the disk and find the label called SMART and check that nothing is going bad there01:36
diamondsI'll poke around for alt-tab settings01:36
lalalaola01:36
dr_willisdiamonds,  im not sure anyone rembers the original problem now....01:36
coz_diamonds,  alt+tab is the Application switcher or the static application switcher01:36
coz_diamonds,  which of those are enabled01:36
diamondsstatic01:36
lalalahi01:36
coz_diamonds,  ok  did you click on that plugin to see its options01:37
diamondsyes I'm looking at "behavior" but I don't see anything about the order01:37
intraderescott, how do I stop the xchat so it does not scroll your message out of the way?01:37
diamondshow do I take a screenshot? :)01:37
coz_diamonds,  ok then its most likely not configurable within that plugin let me check the applications switcher hold on01:37
escottdiamonds, print screen usually01:38
diamondscoz_: you're a peach <301:38
coz_peaches are good...yes? :)01:38
escottintrader, copy and paste it elsewhere. im not sure01:38
diamondsand "desktop?"01:39
coz_diamonds,  one setting under Application switcher and the "General" tab is   "Focus on Switch"   that will not change order but may be helpful while switching01:39
diamondssorry, show desktop shortcut?01:39
urlin2uintrader, hit ctrl-f put in the nd and search to find al lthe posts of that nic01:39
urlin2u*nic01:39
szalintrader: scrolling up a bit will do the trick (but don't forget to scroll down again when you're finished ;))01:40
diamondshttp://i.imgur.com/JzT62.png < coz_01:40
coz_diamonds,  show desktop shortcut is not under the show desktop plugin ,,itis actually under "General options"  Keybindings tab01:40
diamondswait wait, sorry. let's stick to the alt tab thing01:40
diamondscoz_ so I should activate aapplication switcher?01:41
diamondsnyoooo!01:41
coz_ah darn fingers again01:41
diamondscoz_ so I should activate aapplication switcher? It warned of conflicting keybindings01:41
coz_diamonds,   first disable static  then enable application switcher01:42
coz_diamonds,  however,, neither of the offer and "ordering" of the windows01:42
coz_of them rather01:42
diamondsffffff really?01:42
diamondsso I have to alt+tab+tab+tab+tab to get to one then alt+tab+tab+tab+tab+tab+tab to get back?01:43
diamondsthat's ridic. :(01:43
coz_diamonds,  now if you would like to have this feature,, I am sure it is not difficult to code in,, you can go to #compiz-dev and speak with smspillaz,, if it is easy he may go ahead and put it in,, however,, it may not show up  as an update for some time01:43
intraderescott, the disk is sda5 - the disk utility is not showing the SMART one.01:43
Troy^im having a problem with downloading torrents and getting disconnected from my wireless.. i have to do a full disconnect and reconnect, why is this?01:43
admiralvorianyou guys I'm raging pretty hard right now. I'm getting the "mon0 is on channel -1" issue, research says I need to download the compat-wireless source, patch it, recompile and re-install the mac80211...but wireless.kernel.org is down! are there mirros?01:45
urlin2uTroy^, weak signal?01:45
Troy^urlin2u, no im like 7 feet from router01:46
Troy^urlin2u, i never get disconnects any other time its not an obvious disconnect either internet just stops and i have to manually disconnet and reconnect01:46
intraderescott, there is something called SMART data01:46
urlin2uTroy^, have you checkeed if your still on the net at these times.01:47
Troy^urlin2u, well yea but its not01:47
urlin2uTroy^, the manually disconnect and reconnect is confusing to me.01:48
Troy^i have to do that to get a connection again01:48
urlin2uTroy^, disconnect from the router than, even though you get no internet access.01:49
intraderescott, in the SMART data there seem to have some problems, but I can't tell01:49
Troy^yes disconnect from the router01:49
=== root is now known as Guest69821
Troy^i think it has something with torrents using multiple connections but i dont have a problem in windows01:49
urlin2uTroy^, does your provider maybe lock you out f your bandwidth is flying?01:49
Troy^no01:49
Troy^it doesnt happen in windows, also other comps on my network still have a connection at that time01:50
urlin2uTroy^, anybody else on the network have the skills to knock you off?01:50
escottintrader, i need to sign off for the night, someone else can help you interpret the smart data01:51
Troy^urlin2u, no its a home network i am the admin :P01:51
urlin2uTroy^, have you accessed the router when this happens?01:51
Troy^no i have not tried01:51
w0tan34anyone know of any command line tools that upload incremental changes via sftp?01:52
Troy^but i have a feeling its something to do with deluge and it using multiple connections]01:52
urlin2uTroy^, I would try that , but it will need the net to get there at least mine does,  it may give more info if you can get to it but not the net in general, not sure here really.01:52
intraderAnyone, I have some SMART data info that I am not able to interpret. Trying to see why boot is failing - I am using 11.04 on a USB to look.01:53
Troy^urlin2u, yes im trying the deluge torrent channel now01:54
Troy^urlin2u, i might have solved it i just limited the connections in which deluge can use it seems ok so far01:55
diamondsok so my whole top bar went black01:55
urlin2uTroy^, cool I use deluge, but am careful with the setttings, never have problems.01:56
Troy^but do you use wireless or a wired connection?01:56
diamondssee how black it be http://i.imgur.com/Wlk11.png01:56
urlin2uTroy^, one or the other mainly wireless.01:56

ejvdiamonds, i use pidgin01:58
ejvpidgin + pidgin-otr > *01:59
DraginAnyone?01:59
diamondspidgin less than ideal for irc, imo01:59
ejvthat's what xchat and irssi are for02:00
diamondsyeah02:00
ejvtake your pick ;)02:00
coz_diamonds,    xchat and irssi  are excellent irc clients02:00
DraginQuassel is wat I am using02:00
diamondsI want to try xchat02:00
diamondsirssi was a bit... complex02:00
diamondsbut I should probably give it another go02:00
ejvdiamonds, you won't regret the time invested in memorizing the keybinds02:00
coz_diamonds,  irssi  has a bit of a learning curve,,more so than xchat02:00
diamondsdo they integrate with the desktop notification system?02:01
diamondson mac this was always an issue...02:01
ejvdiamonds, yes there is an irrsi libnotify integration, just google02:01
coz_diamonds,   not sure,, I have heard of a few issues with xchat on Unity02:01

KM0201diamonds: you install a real irc client..lol02:02
coz_urlin2u,  well under classic mode it's fine :)02:02
diamondsshould I just switch to classic mode?02:03
diamondsI'm just learning, I don't really care that much02:03
coz_diamonds,  well it depends,, do you like the way Unity is02:03
diamondsI assumed the newest latest would be BEST but that's... it seems unclear now02:03
diamondscoz_: eh... compared to what?02:03
KM0201!best | diamonds02:03
ubottudiamonds: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.02:03
OmegaFortediamonds, Linux has this weird thing called regressions. Sometimes things are better if they are older.02:03
DraginNever ASS U ME02:03
urlin2ucoz_, I have it running great in natty I just have the fusion icon as a launch on the desktop when I occasionally lose the window header, no big deal.02:04
coz_diamonds,  Unity interface  as well as gnome3 will be the  defaults for most distributions,, certainly Unity for ubuntu02:04
diamondsKM0201: I mean "easier for a beginner" not best02:04
urlin2unatty unity02:04
odie5533I just tried to move some files with mv and accidentally typed rm. Anyway to get them back?02:04
OmegaFortediamonds, Well, easy for a beginner would be gnome. It's familiar to anyone who's ever used a mac.02:04
KM0201diamonds: still, really.. the same thing... if you're really used to Unity, you probably won't like gnome, i was really used to Gnome 2.x, and found unity horrid02:04
diamondsOmegaForte: I'm told I'm using gnome02:04
OmegaForteodie5533, You're working on linux. If you make a mistake, there is NO undo button.02:04
coz_urlin2u,  you may want to find and install  displex app indicator  ,, it would probably work better than fusion icon which was reallly desined for compiz 0.8.x an dpi02:04
Draginodie5533 Pray?02:05
diamondsKM0201: I'm not used to it :p02:05
coz_and prior versions I meant  urlin2u02:05
odie5533aww cmon...02:05
odie5533isn't there a trash bin?02:05
odie5533or an undelete program?02:05
Draginthere is in 11.0402:05
KM0201diamonds: if you intend to stick w/ Ubuntu, personally... i would stay w/ unity..02:05
KM0201since gnome 2.x is gonna be gone in a short few months.02:05
odie5533Dragin: I'm on 11.0402:05
urlin2ucoz_, thanks I look for it it's not in the repos.02:05
Draginbut don't know how thst would work with a Terminal app02:06
diamondsbasically my question is this: "It seems like Unity has some more complications that classic.  Are there enough benefits for me to use unity? Is everything moving in that direction so I should go ahead and get used to it? Or is it just as safe/good to switch back to classic and there will be fewer headaches?"02:06
coz_urlin2u,  no I dont think so hold on02:06

diamondsOmegaForte: no, I don't have the windows style task bar with windows listed02:07
Draginmy guess is the former02:08
coz_urlin2u,  when installed,, is should show up under system tools02:08
OmegaForteTwist9, No, It means that topic is not discussed in the UBUNTU SUPPORT channel.02:08
OmegaFortediamonds, Then you're using unity.02:08
urlin2ucoz_, cool thanks.;)02:08
Twist9what's the primary Ubuntu dev channel on freenode?02:08
OmegaForteTwist9, I don't know.02:09
OmegaForteTwist9, And why ask specifically about 802.22?02:09

Bernhardafter installing ubuntu server 11.4 i get these errors. On reboot the file system /boot is corrupted. When i repair this disk with knoppix cd it says it was uncleanly unmounted. after repair it boots normal. But after a reboot i gives the same error. The error message is Cannot write bytes: pipe error. Basicly it does not unmount /boot correctly. Then i installed Debian to see if it was a02:28

abhiPolah, when i forcefully unplug it, there remain the traces like .trash1000 folder03:12
Polahabhi: Where the drive was mounted?03:13
abhimeans it is not safely removed03:13
rakathandiamonds, so you're just trying to connect to a network then? it looks like everything is working correctly03:13
rwwMy apologies for the following modespam:03:14
oxyrosisi broke amarok, it no longer has the media sources functionality. so i deleted it using synaptic. when i reinstall using either Ubuntu package manager or synaptic amarok is still missing media sources. how can i obliterate amarok so i can start out fresh entirely03:14
abhiit is s 2gb stick, attached to usb 2.0 port, Let me know if you need anything more03:14
ParkerRdiamonds, what is your wifi network name03:14
Polahabhi: what filesystem is it?03:15
abhiOK, it is FAT03:15
dr_willisoxyrosis,  its most likely your 'users settings' not the system settings.. thus the logic of remove/reinstalling it - wont fix it. :)  theres most likely some amarok settings directory in your home that you should remove/rename.03:15
oxyrosisawesome dr_willis, i'll try that before i reinstall it again03:16
ubuntu4shanethere is nothing stronger that sudo rm -frv direcotry    right??  I'm getting a read file-system only?  which it isn't.  Very odd03:16
dr_willisoxyrosis,  the whole remove/reinstall to 'fix' things is a 'windows-trained-mindset' The package manager tools should never touch anything in the users home dirs or settings.03:16
Polahabhi: Unplugging it should be fine, you can remove the leftover folders afterwards03:16
rakathandiamonds, if you're trying to find a network you can use airodump-ng...if you want to connect to a network use iwconfig03:16
dr_willisoxyrosis,  its just that many windows apps have a 'clean user settings...' feature :) thats not how  the apt system works.03:17
diamondsrakathan, it says wireless is off by hardware switch03:17
oxyrosiswell, i dont see an amarok folder or file after i enable hidden files03:17
dr_willistheres 100's of dirs of config files...03:18
abhiPolah: Won't it rise any errors?03:18
oxyrosisat least, not an amarok file or folder i recognize as such03:18
rakathandiamonds, the pastebin you linked says Hard blocked: no03:18
rakathandiamonds, never mind03:18
Polahabhi: No. "Safely removing" the drive only makes sure all reads/writes are completed before dismounting it. Unless you're reading/writing from it when it's unplugged it should be fine03:18

JZAppleswols_, I have an external RAID array hooked up via USB and Ubuntu usually remembers the shares, but not always.  It might be doing it, just slower sometimes so I manually do it, that I don't know.  I basically was curious where these shares are remembered at so I could troubleshoot it further and learn more about it.04:13
wols_what "shares"ß are you saring out this raid as a samba share or are you connecting TO a share?04:13

rakathanadmiralvorian that is incredibly strange, but I haven't worked with realtek drivers before so they might just not support injection04:39

endipNetwork manager isn't working for me, so I had to set some configurations manually with the help of wols here in the IRC. Unfortunately, I put my eth0 'down' and when I brought it back 'up' it wouldn't get an IP. So, I assigned an IP manually using ifconfig eth0 192.169.. etc, and I'm having trouble connecting to the router. Can anyone help me get connect again?04:43

corinthIs there any reason why my icon packs and theme wouldn't load after restarting?04:49
rakathanendip no problem, hope it works out...if it doesn't reconnect you can dhclient eth004:50
rakathanendip and that should grab an ip address from the router04:50
JZApplesWhat is the configuration file that contains the remembered shares from a USB device when right clicking on the folder and selecting Sharing Options?04:50
endiprakathan, yeah, I'm going to go read up on dhclient right now04:50
wildbatendip, if you use DHCP / NM  ~ you should remove the entry in /etc/network/interfaces.04:50
endipwildbat :: ok. What will happen if  i don't change the entries in interfaces?04:51
endipwildbat, will it prevent dhcp from working?04:51
wildbatendip: you will bound to the setting in the interfaces and NM won't work with your adapter. should you choose to use static ip ~ you need to set DNS sever setting to ping google.com etc....04:53

mbrochhArrrrrrrg. This is so damn frustrating... Whenever I chose any theme, like Ambience for example, the panel doesn't change its color. Also for example Google Chrome, which is set to use the GTK Themes colors, stays blue. What is wrong with my Ubuntu? It's a fresh install...04:57
rakathanskpl also what OS is loaded on your hard drive?04:57

rakathanskpl yes, try to boot from the hard drive with the flash drive in the computer-  grub is looking for the flash drive but can't find it04:58
Dynamiccan anyone tell me how I can go about adding different fonts to the terminal04:58
rakathanskpl you should be able to choose which OS to boot from in grub, ubuntu 10.10 from hd or 11.04 from flash drive04:58
endipwildbat -- Right, I wouldn't think so. It seemed like the updates were downloading really fast until it got to the java update and now it's creeping...like under 20kb/s04:59
skplrakathan: how will i fix that so i can boot without the flas drive in?04:59
wildbatendip: the speed is depending on your connection and which mirror server you use and how busy they are ~ you have little control over it  other then pick different server.04:59
rakathanskpl when you get into your desktop ubuntu 10.10, try running sudo update-grub04:59
rakathanskpl without the flash drive in04:59
abhiDynamic: you are advised to add only monospace fonts only05:00
endipwildbat -- fair enough. thanks05:00

grycorinth: It's a panel. If it's not visible, add it.05:31
corinthgry, yeah I know. I was wondering if there's a shortcut, though. It'd be faster (since I'm having trouble with adjusting my mouse sensitivity.)05:32
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: the fsck told me that both FATs appear to be corrupt.  What do I do now?05:33

LostvoicesHi, im having trouble burning with ubuntu.. in brasero it tells me my "blank DVD+R" disc does not have enough space to burn a 164mb iso file.. wodim tells me it cannot crate a new session.... can someone please help i need to record a windows repair iso so i can fix my laptop with all my uni assignments on it... the full wodim error is here: http://pastebin.com/UgaPuTzn05:35
ActionParsnipOvertim3: probably #dsl or #damnsmall05:36
Overtim3kk thanx05:36
corinthLostvoices, it sounds like the disc was previously burned on.05:36
gryOvertim3: #dsl05:36
FazzyPlaxLostvoices: Have you used that disk before? It sounds like you're trying to make a multisession disk with a disk that can only be written once...05:36
Lostvoicesnope it's a brand new blank dvd05:36
* Rudolf_ 05:36
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: when I ran that command on /dev/sdb2, it told me "no such file or directory".  When I ran it on /dev/sdb1, it told me that both FATs are corrupt again ...05:36
YankDownUnderLostvoices, Um...when was the last time the CD/DVD drive itself was cleaned? And have you also tried burning at a super-slow speed?05:37
FazzyPlaxLostvoices: Try it on a different disk... let us know how that fares. The disk may be damaged.05:37
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: can you pastebin fdisk -l /dev/sdb ; fsck -p /dev/sdb105:37
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: What is strange - that when I plugged it into a Windows PC - it assigned it drive letter G and thought it was a CD ...05:37
Lostvoicesok i'll see if i can find another disc :)05:38
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: OK ... let me try that then ...05:38
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: or you can check the drive in windows05:38
YankDownUnder...sticking brand new disks into a dirty drive isn't always a good option...05:38
AsadRhow do i find out the configure arguments that were used to build a particular package in ubuntu?05:39

gry!classic | drewbert05:44
ubottudrewbert: 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".05:44
stillParsnipGasseus: i'd check the exte05:44
GasseusstillParsnip Windows only...05:44
drewbertgry: do you feel the future of ubuntu is ubuntu classic?05:45
jribdrewbert: you can choose "classic" as your session at the login screen if you don't want to use unity05:45
drewbertor should I take the time to learn this?05:45
stillParsnipGasseus: i'd check the extensions page. Rallydriver busdriver today05:45
drewbertjrib: ty05:45
grydrewbert: If you like classic, switch to it. I think it would be supported.05:45
* jrib notices the bot had already said that :D05:45
* drewbert I noticed that too. Okay people, well I guess I'm logging out and switching to classic.05:46
urlin2unatty is the last classic desktop05:46
stillParsnipGasseus: there's a thing you can add to nautilus to do it. Could download image then do it there.05:46
grydrewbert: See you on the other side.05:46
drewbertgry: ciao!05:46
drewbert... how do I log out?05:46
drewbertall my menu bars are gone05:47
GasseusstillParsnip Nautilus? Oh you mean that file browser that goes untouched?05:47
stillParsnipdrewbert: top right button05:47
grydrewbert: The button at right top.05:47
drewbertstillParsnip: ah, thanks05:47
stillParsnipGasseus: what do you use. I'm a pcmanfm man myself05:47
GasseusstillParsnip uhh... I don't really use a file explorer. Its terminal for minecraft stuff and chromium for web, nothing else05:48
stillParsnipGasseus: gotcha. You could make a script to set it using gconf05:49
Gasseusmeh, it was worth a try... I guess there isn't a way in chromium?05:49
stillParsnipGasseus: is there a chromium channel?05:50
GasseusstillParsnip not that I know of05:50
stillParsnipGasseus: you could make the extension yourself :-)05:50
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: I was running those commands as root.  I don't think the check disk on it in Windows will work because that PC is not even identifying the "removable disk" correctly (it thinks it is a CD drive).05:51
GasseusstillParsnip CBA if I don't have any simple explanation of the underlying API.05:51
wsbl-uhpd651stillParsnip: Yes - it is a 16 GB PNY flash drive.  I have tons of pictures backed up on here, which is why this sucks ...05:51
mfilipewhat is the better way to do a fresh install? sometimes I have afraid about new technologies that Canonical adds in new versions that I don't get because my config or base package installed. for example: evolution to thinderbird05:51
stillParsnipGasseus: might have a whirl later, if you extract the extension files you will see their guts05:52
wsbl-uhpd651stillParsnip: It's funny - because this flash drive worked just fine the first time I plugged it in.  This was before I wiped the drive and reinstalled the OS, though ...05:52
GasseusstillParsnip I meant the ubuntu side of the API05:52
stillParsnipwsbl-uhpd651: what filesystem does it use?05:52
wsbl-uhpd651stillParsnip: I believe it is FAT ...  that is what the fsck gave me when I tried running it as root ...05:53
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 based on your description, I'm inclined to think its an ExFAT drive, in which case, it must be opened and converted on a windows computer before use on linux05:53
urlin2umfilipe, you can add and remove what you don't want generally in a distro, except when dependencies to it are needed.05:54
stillParsnipwsbl-uhpd651: ok. What steps do you take when you want to unplug the device?05:54
wildbathmmm never used ExFAT. ubuntu don't support it right?05:55
Gasseuswildbat absolutely not05:55
wsbl-uhpd651Gasseus: OK.  Two things.  Before I reformatted my computer, I plugged it in and transferred pictures onto it in Ubuntu just fine (no problem).  When I try plugging it into a Windows PC, it reads it as a CD drive ...05:55
stillParsnipwildbat: no idea05:55
kennetmorning people, does anyone know of a html/php editor with desgin view such as dreamweaver for windows05:55
Gasseuswildbat any flash drive formatted on windows 7 by default will be formatted exfat05:55
wsbl-uhpd651stillParsnip: I have always used the "safely remove drive" option ...05:55
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 are you able to access the files?05:55
mfilipeurlin2u, I know, but sometime the ubuntu team change some applications to help users that I don't know and I use the old app05:56
stillParsnipkennet: bluefish maybe05:56
stillParsnipwsbl-uhpd651: good its important :-)05:56
wsbl-uhpd651Gasseus: No - neither on Ubuntu or Windows.  Did you see the error message I currently get when I plug it into my Linux machine?05:56
AsadRjrib: ty05:56
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 no I didn't... mind linking it05:56
Gasseusto05:56
kennetstillParsnip, okay, i'll look into that thank you05:56
stillParsnipwsbl-uhpd651: are the files ok in windows?05:57
wsbl-uhpd651Gasseus: this is the error: "error mounting: mount: /dev/sbd1: can't read superblock"05:58
wildbatstillParsnip:  no ~windows id the drive as CDdrive ~ U3?05:58
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 Can you read it from a windows computer05:58
wsbl-uhpd651stillParnsip: like I said, Windows reads the flash drive wrong when I plug it into that PC - it reads it as a CD drive.  When go to open up the files it tells me "Please insert disk into the drive>'05:59
wsbl-uhpd651Gasseus: Windows reads the flash drive wrong when I plug it into that PC - it reads it as a CD drive.  When go to open up the files it tells me "Please insert disk into the drive>"05:59
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 Ok, give me a second, I have a tool to try to fix that.05:59
Gasseusactually...05:59
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 do you have administrator access to a windows computer?05:59
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 the windows case is probably a case of messed drivers06:00
Lostvoiceshey, i tried a new Blank DVD it still says  blank dvd not enough space06:00

Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 what type of files are they?06:01
urlin2uLostvoices, is it a dvd-rw06:01

wsbl-uhpd651Gasseus: They are pictures (JPGs).  This sucks ...06:01

wildbatGasseus, wsbl-uhpd651: strangly fdisk can't read the drive . i am think the usb flash gone bad .06:01
wsbl-uhpd651Gasseus: That's all that's on there ...06:01
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 Ok give me an hour and I'll write a script to try and recover them06:01
Gasseusactually...06:02
wsbl-uhpd651Gasseus: Very strange.  I don't understand how this flash drive could have gone bad.  I just bought it !!!06:02
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: you have 16GB free in your hddrive? i would backup it frist.06:03
urlin2uLostvoices, is that the only one you have, it is a write once.06:03
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 For now, do this as root:06:03
wsbl-uhpd651So like, if I went back to Best Buy and told them what the hell happened - would they do me right?06:03
Gasseusif you have 16 gb space on drive06:03
Lostvoicesi have a reel of blank dvd+r they all say the same error06:03
wsbl-uhpd651Gasseus: K, I'm listening ...06:03

shivhacki'm having issues with gnome-vfs06:04
corinthI want to try out KDE, but I want to be able to easily uninstall all of the KDE packages and bundled apps if I don't like it. What's the best way to do this?06:04
wsbl-uhpd651Gasseus: OK, so this is WITH the device plugged in?06:04
Lostvoicesnot its a multi recorded does both06:04
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 indeed06:04
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 so that if there is a chance of recovery, it will happen.06:04
wildbatGasseus: block size?  that can be slow with 512....06:04
Gasseuswildbat better to do it safe... I've had issues with bigger bs06:05
wsbl-uhpd651Gasseus: run that "dd ..." command in terminal?06:05
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 yes, replace wsbl with your computers username for you06:05
wildbatGasseus: really ~ what happened?06:05
FazzyPlaxLostvoices: The only thing I can recommend, try cleaning the drive itself and updating any drivers for it as well.06:05
urlin2ucorinth, do you have a thumb drive?06:05
Gasseuswildbat: FSCK FSCK'ed it...06:06
noahbanksI stuck with a wireless card that isn't working. I'm trying to install drivers without an internet connection. I was directed earlier to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx for help. I'm installing b43. I am stuck on step one. Where can I find the pool folder?06:06
corinthurlin2u, Yep.06:06
Gasseuswildbat The FSCK program ran the FSCK program for FAT-32, which is inappropriate and will break ExFAT formatted partitions06:06
Lostvoicesim going to try to partition my laptop and install ubuntu on there and see if i can get it on my lappy as this is an old computer maybe the drive is broken06:06
Gasseuswildbat he had the usb plugged in at boot and fsck fsck'ed06:06
urlin2ucorinth, you mght just load it to a thumb with persistence and try it out, unetbootin, and the usb writer in ubuntu will give you a persistent setup.06:07
wildbatGasseus: hmmm ~ good to know ^^ thanks for the info :>06:07
shivhackplease ... anybody can help me with resources about gnome-vfs ??06:07
gryLostvoices: ok06:07
YankDownUndershivhack, Wassup mate?06:07
Gasseuswildbat yes. Lesson of the day: Always format flash drives NTFS06:07
gryshivhack: Just Ask.06:07
glebihannoahbanks, are you installing from a CD ?06:08
noahbanksI am.06:08
wildbatGasseus: always use linux ! XD06:08
Gasseuswildbat school06:08
glebihannoahbanks, then you should find the pool folder at the root of the installation CD06:08
shivhackYankDownUnder : I made a custom dekstop based on ubuntu lucid, using directly gnome-panel and nautilus06:08
Gasseuswildbat: I don't bring my laptop every day06:08
YankDownUndershivhack, Right....and...?06:09
shivhackYankDownUnder :  everything went fine, but special paths are not opened06:09
noahbanksgledihan: I've only started using Ubuntu today. How can I navigate to tha?06:09
YankDownUndershivhack, Ok...now, when you say "special paths" -> are you meaning like the mount points for GVFS?06:09
wsbl-uhpd651Gasseus: K - it must be thinking about it - because I did what you said - and no error message yet.  There are a lot of pictures on there, so maybe the backup will take a bit - if it is truly working at all?06:09
noahbanksglebihan: I've only started using Ubuntu today. How can I navigate to tha?06:09
corinthurlin2u, hm....that doesn't seem like the easiest way to me.06:09
shivhackit' gives 'Nautilus can' handle computer: location'06:09
shivhackthe same for network://06:09
corinthThere isn't a way to remove packages installed by a meta-package?06:09
glebihannoahbanks, the simplest way is to use nautilus (the file browser)06:09
FazzyPlaxI need some help with the Ubuntu Software Center. I tried downloading the program "Gnome Partion Editor", and I got an error in return.06:10
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 that is expected behavior. If you have any way of moving that file to a windows computer, I can guarantee recovery of like 95 % of the files.06:10
grycorinth: apt-get remove ?06:10
urlin2ucorinth, okay.06:10
YankDownUndershivhack, Ah...well, that sounds more like you'll have to muck around with gconf-editor and straighten out the URL's for network and the likes...06:10
shivhackYankDownUnder : how ??06:10
corinthgry, If I apt-get remove  a package like kubuntu-desktop, won't it only remove the dummy package?06:10
MorgzFazzyPlax - may not be what you're after, but I made a G-Parted CD from an ISO and I think it's indispensable.06:10
wsbl-uhpd651Gasseus: OK.  Are you talking about the usbbak.img file?06:10
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 Exactly06:11
anony22asl?06:11
YankDownUndershivhack, What I'd do (if I were you) is to dig through the URL handlers in gconf-editor -> find what works and find the proper associations you're requiring.06:11
shivhackthe main problem is the unavailibility of resources out there :-(06:11
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: the dd command will backup all the data from the usb then can use some software like ddrescue to retrieve all the jpeg if possible.06:11
FazzyPlaxMorgz: I was trying to avoid CD burning in order to install GParted06:11
glebihancorinth, yes but running apt-get autoremove after removing the meta package should also remove all its dependencies06:11
urlin2utestdisk06:11
shivhackYankDownUnder : yathzee, never occured to me06:11
YankDownUndershivhack, I'd be digging through the gnome forums - not Ubuntu forums...cuz this is specifically a Gnome2 issue my friend...06:11
corinthglebihan, oh, great idea. Thanks!06:11
noahbanksglebihan: How can I view the root from there? I don't see it on either the desktop or within the file browser?06:11
shivhackYankDownUnder : thanks a lot, you've been very helpfull ;-)06:12
Gasseuswsbl-uhpd651 you can watch the progress by opening the properties windows for the file in nautilus06:12
YankDownUndershivhack, As well, you can get on the #gnome channels on the Gnome servers...06:12
zabomberanony22: asl?06:12
glebihannoahbanks, you don't see any disks in the left column in nautilus ?06:12

CrOnOs2000hi any1 know how i change the speed of my mouse wheel on lucid im using a microsoft wireless 200006:30
p0aHello I have two hard drives grub is on the first the second has an OS already, but I made free space and I want to install windows there. My question is: 1) How do I install windows there? (just boot the CD rom and the windows partitioner will let me select where to install?) and 2) After I install windows how do I tell GRUB to let me boot from it?06:31
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: will terminal tell me when the back up is finished?06:31
damnognome-look.org is down??06:31
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: then I have to run "ddrescue" manually?06:32
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: yes06:32
glebihanp0a, you should be able to select that space from the windows partitioner06:33
p0aWhoa I just discovered I run Grub2 and there's no /boot/grub/menu.lst hehe06:33
wildbat!recover | wsbl-uhpd65106:33
ubottuwsbl-uhpd651: Some tools to recover lost data are listed and explained at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery - Recovering deleted files on !ext3 filesystems can be virtually impossible, although methods that might work is some cases are described at at http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html and http://projects.izzysoft.de/trac/ext3undel06:33
p0aglebihan, ah thanks for the tip. Question 2) remains if anyone knows, how to let grub know I installed Windows on another drive...06:33
OmegaForte!grub | p0a06:33
ubottup0a: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 - See !grub1 for releases before Karmic (9.10)06:33
glebihanp0a, but installing windows will overwrite the MBR, and you'll have to rerun grub installation  from a live CD06:34
glebihanp0a, the links OmegaForte just gave you will help you do that06:35
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: there are many tools you can use to recover the jpge06:35

p0abut that's impossible06:35
OmegaFortep0a, Nothing is impossible in Linux.06:36
p0aI have 2 hard drives, A and B, I have grub on A and I boot from A so any change on B wouldn't affect A I think06:36

OmegaFortenewbuntguy, Well, Half of your problems are from Unity.06:37
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: photorec may be the easilest fo you ~06:37
newbuntguywhat a let down06:37
adzydoes anyone know about where i can change the setting for what happens when i close my laptop screen to keyboard??? it seems to be crashing my system06:37
p0aOh whatever I'll try it06:38
newbuntguyOMEGAFARTE: what is unity?06:38
bullgard4_gry: I am using Oneiric. In Oneiric I cannot see a "System > About Gnome" dialog.06:38
OmegaForteadzy, This is why I don't use mobile technology. My portable system is an ITX box with one of those flip-DVD things, or I take my ipad. Mobile developers are pinheads who deivate from standards.06:38
skilzis there anyway to play mp3s though my pc speaker?06:39
OmegaForteskilz, Can you turn lead into gold?06:39
skilzOmegaForte: Sure!06:39
newbuntguyWHEN WILL THE TEAM LEARN TO SAY ITS NOT RECOMENDED06:39
OmegaFortenewbuntguy, Ditch the caps, homie.06:39
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: ddrescue or photorec - which one is easier, then?  And what the specific terminal commands that I use once this backup completes?06:40
newbuntguyOK HOMI06:40
skilzOmegaForte: I recall one of my old boxes done exactly that, played audio throught the pc speaker. So it must be possible to re-create this.06:40
OmegaForteskilz, The PC speaker is powered by a 4 bit analog, driverless system. You'd have to connect it to a device that can actually process sound.06:41
adzyOmegaForte, Yea its time for an upgrade this dell laptop is not cutting it!06:42
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: photorec it is more interactive . sudo photorec <the_img_file_that_dd_created>06:42
skilzOmegaForte: What if I set up the pc speaker as an output device for your sound subsystem, and then playback the MP3 files with any MP3 player software?06:42
newbuntguyOmegaForte:should i bounce unity or what?06:42
OmegaForteskilz, You missed the whole possibility of that being shot down. The PC speaker isn't powered by an encoder/decoder set. It's driverless. You cannot pass non serial data to it.06:43
OmegaForteadzy, And make it a new dell. Most of them work OTB with most debian distros.06:43
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: OK - pretty simple.  "sudo [name of tool] [name of img fiile]"  So it would be "sudo ddrescue usbbak.img" too, then - right?06:43
OmegaFortenewbuntguy, Unity was designed for Netbooks and stuff like ipads. Single screen, low powered devices.06:43
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: What does it do, then - like populate some directory with all the jpgs reference in the img file or something?06:43
adzyOmegaForte, Yea its lasted 3 years but i put a magnet on hdd accidentially and now its started to fail lol06:43
skilzOmegaForte: http://www.armadeus.com/wiki/index.php?title=PWM06:44
newbuntguyOmegaForte:and06:44
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: ddrescue work differently06:44
OmegaForteskilz, And your PC can't do that, idiot.06:44
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: OK - so that is what photorec does?06:44
newbuntguyOmegaForte:questin was should i get rid of it :and would it help06:44
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: it try to recover any file.06:45
skilzOmegaForte: Why not?06:45
OmegaForteadzy, A magnet won't hurt a hard drive. Proven. You probably caused a cap to offset and output bad power for a tick, and it just let a minor issue develop.06:45
newbuntguyOmegaForte:thhis is the worst os i have ever used06:46
OmegaForteskilz, Because PC's don't have APF transistors. Learn electronics.06:46
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: "recover" mean it does what - actually ... to the file?06:46
isbricMorning!, coes anyone have a good software load balancer equalent of balance? we are upgrading to 10.04 and this makes for a great time to try somthing new. esp when the old configuration doesnt work with the new version of balance :P06:46
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: yes06:46
newbuntguyhave to command line everything06:46
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: try to scan the whole image/device  and extract the file out without the help of filesystem06:46
OmegaFortenewbuntguy, No, it's the worst UI you've used. Log out with the LOG OUT function in the bar, and click the dropbox where Unity is, set it to Ubuntu Classic. And CLI assists in Debugging. Get used to ti.06:46
newbuntguywhat a piece of crap06:47
especially-corncan i erase the distro's memory of the usb ports?06:47
OmegaForteespecially-corn, Memory of the USB ports. What?06:47
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: I see.  So it then tries extracting out the files to some default location?06:48
newbuntguyi do not see unity06:48
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: yes06:48
OmegaFortenewbuntguy, Look down at the bottom of the monitor.06:48
especially-corni mean kind of like in windows, if you don't install the drivers correctly you get "unknown device" and every time you connect that thing you always get "unknown device" instead of getting a chance to reinstall the drivers06:48
especially-cornso you have to remove them completely and then try again06:48
OmegaFortenewbuntguy, It's there. You're tstill wearing your stupid goggles.06:48
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: aka the image file you just created.06:48
urlin2ulol OmegaForte06:49
OmegaForteespecially-corn, Just unplug it. If the driver didn't load, or failed to load, replugging it will give it another go. However this won't fix a bad driver install, which you'll have to deal with manually.06:49
skilzOmegaForte: try googling for pwm audio driver linux06:49
OmegaForteskilz, For specific hardware. 100/100 your PC ain't got it.06:49
adzyhow do i open multiple terminal windows>?06:50
especially-cornOmegaForte, it doesn't work anymore, yesterday i bought a keyboard with 2 hubs included, it worked flawlessly, that is, until i used the 2 hubs, now it doesn't work anymore06:50
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: right.  Good deal.  The file size is now at 8.5 GB.  I can't remember how much data was on the thing - but it is definitely over halfway done ...06:50
OmegaForteskilz, That stuff is for things like PHONES that use PWM for tone generation, alerting and getting you to clam them hell up.06:50
OmegaForteespecially-corn, Does it work in another port or system?06:50
especially-cornOmegaForte, it works on another system06:50
skilzOmegaForte: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PC_speaker06:50
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: 8.5GB ? i think yours is 16GB drive.06:50
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: it should be 16GB file or your drive is truely faulty06:51
skilzOmegaForte: I believe I have proven you wrong! pwm converts analog (or, digital audio, a quasi-analog) signal into a serial stream of 0 and 106:51
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: right.  which is why it is over halfway finished ...06:51
kcjHow do I edit my keyboard layout (edit != change)? I want to swap my ctrl and alt keys so that using Emacs doesn't hurt.06:51
OmegaForteespecially-corn, Okay. Then you've probably generated a bus conflict. Something a DEVELOPED driver system like windows can handle. Linux'es drivers are written by people who want the driver...Hang on dude.06:51
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: you mean the dd isn't finished yet?06:51
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: no - it isn't ...06:52
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: OK~06:52
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: there are a lot of pictures on there, so ...06:52
OmegaForteskilz, For DRIVER-RAN SYSTEMS. Your PC speaker isn't DRIVER RAN. It's RAW SERIAL. You would need a SERIAL INTERPRETER BETWEEN THAT DEVICE and THE DRIVER..Which your PC speaker DOESN'T HAVE.06:52
* rww turns down OmegaForte's volume06:52
skilzThere is a kernel module named snd-pcsp.ko which may be of interest to you!06:52
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: doesn't matter ~ even it is a empty new drive , dd will give you 16GB file.06:52
especially-cornOmegaForte, yes, thats what i meant, i want my system to "forget" what this keyboard means because i suspect it still thinks my phone is somehow connected to the system,06:53
especially-cornthrough it06:53
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: Oh I see.  That is kind of what I thought ...06:53
OmegaForteskilz, Pc manufacturers stopped putting drivers in the bios frontend for the PC speaker four years ago.06:53
jpdsrww: What do you think 'forte' means?06:53
skilzOmegaForte: This pc is around 9 years old!06:53
OmegaForteespecially-corn, Well, I don't know how to do that, but have you given the system a good power cycle?06:53
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: so all the picture files I had on there will be captured in this 16GB rollup, then?  Is that the idea?06:53
OmegaForteskilz, Then how are...WAit...I keep forgetting. Debian will run on a toaster..06:53
especially-cornOmegaForte, yep, unplugged and stuff06:54
OmegaForteskilz, Then take your old box and cram it.06:54

skilz16:54 < jmarsden> skilz: ask this guy what snd-pcsp.ko is, if it is not a pc speaker driver :)06:55
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: it is a 1:1 drive image. you can backup and restore a drive with dd. and from which , you can recover data too . if it is a working drive you can even mount the image file as if it is a drive.06:55
OmegaForteskilz, A speaker driver, and a sound driver are different.06:55

OmegaForteespecially-corn, Is -:-:-.000E the keyboard that was plugged in; and now is not?06:57
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: if you don't back up ~ you can just run sudo photorec /dev/sdb :)06:57
OmegaForteskilz, Go sit through an electronics engineering class for me homie...Just learn something...And stop harassing me.06:57
kcjHow do I edit my keyboard layout (edit != change)? I want to swap my ctrl and alt keys so that using Emacs doesn't hurt.06:58
rwwfail!06:58
skilzOmegaForte: Playing pwm audio through speaker, with signal generated by software, was very common at a time when sound cards weren't that common.06:58
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: backing up to harddrive make your data safe and harddrive work faster then USB thumb drive in datarecovery (photorec)06:58

wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: yeah - good call.  It's good we are doing both.  I don't know - I think it the USB just got formatted wrong when initially plugged it - to backup my pictures before reformatting ...  It is currently formatted as FAT.  Is there a way to reformat it?  What format is Ubuntu 11.04 in - or what format does this flash drive have to be formatted in for it to be successfully read by my Linux machine, I guess?06:59

OmegaForterww...Can you save me from this pinhead?07:00
especially-cornOmegaForte, look http://paste.ubuntu.com/660943/07:00
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat: Thanks for all your help, by the way.  I have usually been successful in getting my problems solved on here - but not always.  Sometimes failure has just been due to the nature of the problem, though ...07:00
OmegaForteespecially-corn, It looks like it sees something..07:01
wildbatwsbl-uhpd651: linux do read FAT16 and FAT32 ~ but not ExFAT . but FAT is outdated. use NTFS if you use windows with it or else just ext407:01
paijo_i think fat can be read by linux flawlessly07:01
OmegaForteskilz, Did you know fourty years ago we could generate 24 tones over a serial bus to a speaker...That was driven?07:01
especially-cornOmegaForte, yes, it  does, but it doesn't work as it should07:01
skilzOmegaForte: Please don't get upset! You don't like to be proven wrong?07:02
OmegaForteskilz, Did you also know that computer components used to cost more than some cars?07:02
wsbl-uhpd651paijo_: I should think so, because my machine read it fine the first time I plugged it in.  So I don't know what the deal is - sometimes Ubuntu is just kinda "squirrely" ...07:02

YankDownUnderajay, If yer hardware is "older", don't be fooled into thinking that the "newer" is going to be faster, or better...this is LINUX...whether or not it's supported doesn't really come into the issue...does it work? Can you get things to work that don't work? It's worth a thought. I've made the mistakes of upgrading older hardware only to find that things moved heaps slower...ergo, downgraded and dealt with it.07:27
ajaytrue that07:27

newbuntguyeven when it isnt exactly what you are looking for intuition trust it07:28
YankDownUnderajay, Upgrade to 10.04. It's an LTS version, you're good till 2013.07:28

ajayon my main system I want to stay current though.. damn 10.04 runs like sh* on there right now though.. alas..07:32
YankDownUnderajay, If 10.04 runs slowly, have you thought about tweaking it to make it more optimised?07:32
rabbit1unable to connect to internet through huawei 3g e-stick on ubuntu 10.04‌‌, please help07:33
YankDownUnderajay, Cars are not "tuned for performace" when you buy them off the lot. You have to tweak and tune them to YOUR specs...ditto with your OS...07:33
ajayYankDownUnder: it just feels easier to blow it out, it's way annoying.. too often X just locks up the whole system. (mouse moves, but i can't do anything else). gross07:34
ajayYankDownUnder: what is 11 missing for you?07:34
YankDownUnderajay, Well, blowing it out and starting again with 10.04 or 10.10 is a good thing...however, think about things through and through...07:34

_ramocan anyone help here?07:37
YankDownUnderajay, One way of looking at the entire situation - from an educational perspective - is that if your linux install is crawling, something is wrong. Find what is wrong and fix it. You've educated yourself in the process.07:38
newbuntguyramo i would help you but i type way to slow07:38
ajayYankDownUnder: looks like there's plenty of links online about not using unity, so what's the issue? i don't get it07:39
_ramonewbuntguy: this is nor argument :)07:39
newbuntguyjust admiring my handywork my system OK07:40
YankDownUnderajay, Unity - AND Gnome3 - have taken a drastic turn to making your DESKTOP into your NETBOOK or PHONE...therefore, alot of functionality has been lost - just due to "corporate" decision...Unity is still a child, and has many years to mature...think on that.07:40
icerootajay: in 11.04 you can use gnome2 as you are using at the moment07:40
iceroot!classic | ajay07:41
ajayYankDownUnder: please explain or show examples07:41
ubottuajay: 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".07:41
theadminajay, if you like Gnome2 I suggest you to consider Xfce. Ubuntu's getting rid of Gnome2 very soon.07:41
newbuntguythis room helped me in the sence that it pointed me in the right direction. PROPS07:41
ajayoh, but GNOME 3 is "made of easy"07:41
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat_semi_afk: what does that command wipe, specifically - everything off your flash drive?07:41
YankDownUnderajay, If you want a real explanation from an "oldie", take it to PM and I'll be more than happy to explain...07:41
ajayYankDownUnder: I don't want to hear 10 mins of explanation..07:42
FazzyPlaxI need some help badly with GParted...07:42
wildbat_semi_afkwsbl-uhpd651: yes07:42
YankDownUnderajay, Simple answer: You're going to have to completely "re-learn" the interface and functions.07:42
newbuntguywaiting for my kvm switch07:42
ajayso you're saying i'll have to install gnome2 in addition on 11?  sounds like a bit of extra space.. hrmm.. interesting that this divide is forming..07:43
xeologyhi guys, i just upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 on a vps (met some resistance" and now openssh doesnt work.  service ssh yields ssh stop/waiting.  Any ideas?07:43
theadminajay: No, 11.04 still does have Gnome2 by default, you just have to switch to it07:44
urlin2uajay, the classic desktopi s already there natty is the last release with it though07:44
theadminajay: 11.10 won't, and it won't be in the repos either I suppose.07:44
ajayok, so i don't see why Yank won't upgrade to 11 then..07:44
YankDownUnderajay, Gnome2 is the "classic desktop" on 11.04 => so you'll have to remove the scrollbar overlay and Unity in order to "create" a proper Gnome2 desktop...however, that being said, there are some issues you'll end up running across because the Ubuntu folks have decided FOR YOU that Unity is best...ahem...07:44
FazzyPlaxI was trying to use GParted earlier, but when I was trying to adjust my windows partition size in order to make more room for my Ubuntu one, I found out that my hard drive supposedly has only one partition on it.07:44
ajayYankDownUnder: maybe it's time for a new distro for ya then?07:45
YankDownUnderajay, As I've stated, 11.04 ain't all that great on older machines - new and fast and "cutting edge" as it sounds - we're talking about older hardware...mmmm...07:45
gacFazzyPlax: that's normal behaviour? :)07:45
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat_semi_afk: OK - it's telling me that the "photorec" command is not found.  Do I have to install this first?  I entered "sudo photorec /home/[my username]/[name of img file]07:45
YankDownUnderajay, I try, experiment and use nearly all of them...I'm in biz...I'm not a hobbyist...07:45
newbuntguynot spam but:http://www.geeks.com/search.asp?query=kvm&FIELD=ALL07:45
wsbl-uhpd651wildbat_semi_afk: ... the pathname to the img file, I should say - off the end ...07:45
FazzyPlaxgac: if that's the case, then how am I supposed to increase my Ubuntu partition size?07:46
gacoh, I see, you've already installed it?07:46
wildbat_semi_afkwsbl-uhpd651: yes, sudo apt-get install photorec07:46
gacI thought you meant reduce windows to make room for a ubuntu installation, y mistake07:46
grybullgard4_: I suspect you may want #ubuntu+1; the command I gave gives different version that `apt-cache show gnome` and they might be able to confirm which menu item concurs with one of these two commands.07:46
gacwell it's either installed on another drive, or you've installed with Wubi07:46
grybullgard4_: s/that/than/07:47
FazzyPlaxgac: Oh, np. I don't understand what's happening, though. I'm on Ubuntu now, but I was on my Windows environment less than 15 minutes ago.07:47

YankDownUnderajay, Mate, Gnome3 and Unity are the "same visually and in usefullness" - the same ergonomic thinking - the "corporates" are trying to "turn your desktop into a simple phone" - aka iPhone and HTC/Android...THAT is the interface they're pushing...however, for those of us that USE our desktops/netbooks and the likes, we don't appreciate the "force it down their throats" approach...and it's not driving folks away (well, Unity i07:55
YankDownUnders) but it's making folks think about their desktop environment instead of making folks feel GOOD bout using a linux distro...get it?07:55

ioriveurI uses awesome as main wm.09:32
Fuchswhat the ...09:32
Fuchsanli_: do _not_ run a window manager with sudo09:32
ioriveurawesome is awesome, ja.09:33
Fuchsanli_: this is plain nonsence and it might break things such as the access rights to .Xauthority09:33
anli_Fuchs: If I dont use sudo, all that is happening is that I damage window titles and I have to restart the computer09:33
Fuchsanli_: then your system is already rather broken09:34
anli_But if I use sudo, I can work with the computer09:34
Fuchsand no, you don't have to restart, in the worst case you can still CTRL+ALT+F1, login, DISPLAY=:0 whateverwm --replace & disown   CTRL+ALT+F709:34
anli_I cannot change the apperance of windows however09:34
Fuchsanli_: of course not, since it takes the settings of the root user09:34
anli_I have only done metacity --replace in an xterm (trying without sudo)09:35
Fuchsanli_: try fix the other problem first, by changing the wm-theme as an example. As your regular user, not with sudo.09:35
anli_My original problem is that I cannot use compiz together with blender actually09:35
anli_It locks up the graphics after a while so I have to reboot09:35
Fuchsthen don't, switch to metacity while using it, and if not already existing, submit a bug report at launchpad09:35

anli_nvidia 8600 GT09:36
Fuchsand the proprietary driver. What version?09:36

anli_NVRM version: NVIDIA UNIX x86 Kernel Module  270.41.06  Mon Apr 18 14:54:25 PDT 201109:37
Fuchsold, that might still have the bug in it which is similar to what you are describing09:37
Fuchscould you try fetching a newer driver via a ppa  (do _not_ download an install the .run file from nvidia)09:37
Fuchs280.13 should be available09:38
anli_So why do I get that driver when I am running the newest version of ubuntu?09:38
ioriveurhow about nouveu driver09:38
Fuchsanli_: due to the update policy of ubuntu, which is not a bad thing, usually09:38

gryNoNick, ioriveur - there is ##googleplus if you're interested09:39
anli_I cant submit bug reports here and where, I have a job to do09:39
Fuchsanli_: no, it might not be a driver problem, this is just a guess for now, but probably a good one09:39
Fuchsanli_: well, pity, then I can't help you, since I as well have a job to do and not time for more guesses09:39
ioriveurWell, Im in already, thanks.09:39
ioriveurWell, Im in already, thanks. gry09:40
anli_I dont like guesses eitehr09:40
anli_either09:40
Fuchsanli_: creating a bug reports takes ~ 2 minutes, I guess you should have this time09:40
Fuchsanli_: so: try the new driver, if it works: good. If it doesn't: create a bug report.09:40
anli_A bug report then that synaptic is an application that can give me software that is so buggy that I consider switching operating system? ;)09:40
anli_ok09:40
Fuchsanli_: but due to the fact that you have to run a window manager as root to have a working system, I suspect that there might be already something broken on your system.09:41

HeraklesWhat is this now.... am i getting help ?10:04
Heraklesor what ?10:04
Arzhave been trying to install ubuntu 64bit and when i restart to complete the installation, i select ubuntu in the boot option, it says completing installation and all, then the ubuntu load screen comes up but then a corrupted screen shows up and my keyboard is disconnected somehow and i cant do anything, tell me if you want to see how the screen looks like.10:04
gryHerakles: I'm still trying to understand how you're trying to use the dvd.10:04
ioriveurHerakles:ah, I get. You want to install "software", not OS, right?10:05
HeraklesI want to install any Software from DVD, like say Xchat....gry10:05
gryHerakles: the "dvd" option in software center is used to install software from a source which is a "repository"; if the dvd is not one, then it won't work.  If the dvd is an 11.04 installation dvd, then it can't be a repository - the only way to use it is to boot into it and install (with a prior backup)10:06
icerootHerakles: why you want that?10:06
icerootHerakles: instead of using the repos10:06
icerootHerakles: its ALWAYS the best idea to use the software from the repos instead of old software from dvd (with security-issues)10:06
Heraklesgry, i bought the DVD with a easyLinux-magazine and it tells me that it can be used.....10:06
ProstheticShey guys, im more or less wondering a little about the basics of disk access in linux/ubuntu here but: if i write a cron job, that is going to do an ls on 3 directories, and possibly write that to a file, is this going to prevernt my harddrives from going to sleep, or is there some form of disk cacheing that will save me from the above?10:06
Arz?10:06
gryHerakles: Could you follow the instructions, then, and tell us what they were, and what errors you got, please?10:07
icerootHerakles: of course the normal install cd can be used as a repo10:07
icerootHerakles: but as i said its not a good idea to use old software from dvds10:07
ioriveurArz, your console is blacked out and nothing to get?10:07
icerootProstheticS: that will wake up the disks10:08

ioriveurWell, Arz, how many old your system is?10:39
szalAuriga: as you won't be running more than one installation at a time, one swap partition will suffice10:40
Aurigaszal, Right so they do all use the same swap. Thank you. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to be low on resources because of an oversight as small as that.10:41

jrib[HzF]Rocker: best to just ask the channel your actual question (on a single line)10:42
Aurigajrib, How do you mean swap-to-disk? You mean switch to a live cd & configure a swap area?10:42
* szal has 3 swap partitions and all activated, but this just as a precaution if one or more disks fail10:42
jribAuriga: no, like "hibernate" in windows10:42
jribAuriga: I meant "suspend-to-disk", not "swap-to-disk", sorry10:43

[HzF]RockerWhat to do? :'(10:43
Aurigajrib, Ahhh okay, but how would that help? To have multiple swaps for that? You mean you would configure each swap to an OS, then that OS uses it's allocated swap area in suspend...? That sounds really convoluted lol.10:44

ioriveurArz11:04
[HzF]RockerHence i can't connect to the wifi network11:05
ZenMasterSpacewalker: You can't rule me on that becuase you can't tell what my connotation is via txt. Thus making your judgement in accurate. So yes it was more wise to not say anything at all.11:05
ZenMaster[HzF]Rocker: Is there a file that holds all of your wifi settings? like a ".wifi" in your home dir or something, back in the days of bsd there was "net-config".11:06
[HzF]Rockerdunno, gonna go look11:06
maalacharry_: this is so strange. the only reason why i want this to work because whenever i boot up with adapter and then unplug it. it freezes. so i have to start it on battery mode..11:06
wols_ZenMaster: network manager has a config file somewhere. or /etc/network/interfaces if you use that11:06

elkyZenMaster, Please don't use pejoratives such as "gay" in this channel. It's simply not acceptable here.11:12
maalaci have very bad experience on 11.04..i'm going to try on the 11.10 this might fix all the other issues of 11.0411:12

ffeegxhso i've just insert my old usb hdd box in my ubuntu, i see this in my /var/log/messages http://pastebin.com/sReaTXJ8 for some reason this hdd doesn't appear in my ubuntu's hdd list, any key to that?11:19
caferiusi have typed it ti terminal, ActionParsnip. Which part do you want to know?11:19
ActionParsnipcaferius: all, make a pastebin of the full output11:19
glebihanharry_, it sets some environment variables (LANG and LANGUAGE) to the correct values11:19
[HzF]Rocker@ActionParSnip - it does list the network i want to connect to, does that make a difference?11:19
oshekfehAfter I installed ubuntu, I found that access to internet is very slow, can anybody help me?11:19

ActionParsnipffeegxh: when you last unplugged it from a system, what steps did you take?11:21
harry_glebihan: yes precisely but what i am facing in Ubuntu 11.04 is that when ever i change the langauge at the time of login it wont set the environment and the locale variable to that lanague which i have selected at the time of login..??11:21
ffeegxhActionParsnip: well it should be empty11:21
ffeegxhActionParsnip: i guess11:21

sam_muleHow do i stop ubuntu from keeping a history of the last documents I have opened.11:23
ffeegxhActionParsnip: so, i just format it and it will work?11:23
ActionParsnipffeegxh: then I would use gparted and create a new partition. Make sure you select the sdb under the devices menu so you are working on the new drive11:24
sudokillsam_mule- there should be a recently used file in home11:24
ffeegxhActionParsnip: thank you11:24
ActionParsnipffeegxh: yes, its not partitioned so you cannot use it yet11:24
sudokillsam_mule- do sudo chattr +i on it11:24
ActionParsnipffeegxh: :D11:24
sam_mulesudokill: what will that do?11:24
ActionParsnipElirips: it's called Unity. The settings are in ccsm. You may need to install compizconfig-settings-manager so you can run ccsm11:24
sudokillsam_mule- make it so it cant be written to or deleted11:25
jasonmspAnyone know how to get the F10 key to work in the terminal on Natty  so that I can close htop on my server?11:25
[HzF]Rocker@ActionParsnip, i still don't get what to do, the scan doesn't say which interface was used, but it did use the wifi card (as it found 7 wifi networks)11:25
sam_mulesudokill: so in sudo cmd just put what you said.  Or do i need to goto a folder first ?11:25
glebihanharry_, it seems that the variables which values are set when you select the language are in fact LANGUAGE, GDM_LANG and LC_MESSAGES11:25
ActionParsnip[HzF]Rocker: try:  sudo iwlist scan | head -n 20    eth0 wil be listed, underneath will be the wireless interface name11:25
EliripsActionParsnip: I didnt change anything in the configuration, I opened firefox, and now the thing wont hide again11:26
oshekfehAfter I installed ubuntu, I found that access to internet is very slow, can anybody help me?11:26

ActionParsniposhekfeh: tried the google dns servers? may help (plus it's free to try)11:26
ActionParsnipElirips: well its not doing it now so something must be wrong, right?11:26
harry_yes mostly GDM_LANG but this GDM_LANG is what ??11:27
EliripsActionParsnip: indeed.11:27
harry_i use env | grep LANG command11:27
Lostvoicesi have 2 pcs with ubuntu on them and i want to send files from one to the other over wifi. how do i setup a network to do this on ubuntu?11:27
oshekfehActionParsnip: Ok I will try11:27
harry_glebihan:yes mostly GDM_LANG but this GDM_LANG is what ??11:27
ActionParsnipElirips: instal the app then check the unity settings, you can set the hide style there11:27
sam_mulesudokill: so in sudo cmd just put what you said.  Or do i need to goto a folder first ?11:27
dr_willisjasonmsp,  its in the settings/profile for the terminal. its remaped to some other function. I always have to disable that for mc to work right11:27
b0otI can't seem to stream to a multicast ip address in ubuntu 10.0411:28
b0otit seems like any connection to a multicast ip address fails11:28
glebihanharry_, not sure, never saw that one before11:28
dr_willisjasonmsp,  under 'keyboard shortcuts' it seems.11:28
b0otany ideas what could be causing that?11:28
jasonmspdr_willis There is a setting in terminal that does not enable  the f10 key  but when deslected it still does not send the f10 through the terminal.11:29
harry_glebihan:okay but by which command you got the LC_MESSAGE??11:29
glebihanharry_, GDM is the gnome display manager, which handles the login, so that variable must be set when you login when I don't know what it is used for11:29
[HzF]Rocker@ActionParsnip: uhm, then waht? - i do get a list containing address, channel, etc. and it's the right one + some "IE: Unknown: " stuff11:29
sam_muleHow do i stop ubuntu from keeping a history of the last documents I have opened.11:29
glebihanharry_, the "env" command lists all environment variables11:30
ActionParsnip[HzF]Rocker: what is teh scanning interface name?11:30
dr_willisjasonmsp,  odd..   This is in htop you are having the issues. I always use mc.. let me try htop and see if it works.11:30
[HzF]Rocker@ActionParsnip: wlan011:30

gryjemparin1: Good evening.11:31
ActionParsnip[HzF]Rocker: ok that's cool. Did you check the dmesg output?11:31
jemparin1everything should be fine11:31
[HzF]Rockeri missed that11:31
dr_willisjasonmsp,  hmm.. seems its broken.. odd.. for htop you can use 'q' to quit. but  now in my case F10 dosent work for mc either.. interesting.11:31
ActionParsnip[HzF]Rocker: reboot and login, then run:   dmesg | tail11:32
dr_willisjasonmsp,  i never noticed thatbefor. i tend to use terminator instead of gnome0terminal11:32
ActionParsnip[HzF]Rocker: read the output, some lines will relate to the wifi setting up, may give clues11:32
harry_glebihan:now i just need to find out what the LC_MESSAGE means and how to assess it in my project using qt11:32
dr_willisjasonmsp,  it could be compiz is grabbing the f10 key also11:32
Ramsesyou guys need to create a way to we have ubuntu and windows on the same machine at the same time without installation, like a live cd11:33
ActionParsnipcaferius: did you make the pastebin yet?11:33
Ramsesmy dad dont allo me to use only ubuntu11:33
ActionParsnipRamses: how will it be "on the system" if it's not installed?11:33
RamsesII am thinking, wait11:34
ActionParsnipRamses: you can install Ubuntu in a persistant mode to a USB stick / SD card / CF etc11:34
RamsesMy job depends on windows11:34
sam_muleActionParsnip: I get no such file.11:34
ActionParsnipRamses: just tell your system to boot the external storage when you want Ubuntu11:34
Ramsesmy dad is always watching me all day long11:35
dr_willisjasonmsp,  its looking like somthing else is grabbing the F10 key. even in xterm the F10 key is not working.11:35
Ramsesit would interesting to have ubuntu also in the machine like Cygwin11:35
ActionParsnipsam_mule: there is a lot here http://askubuntu.com/questions/34592/how-to-clear-recently-used-files11:35
ActionParsnipRamses: it can be if you have it over LAN11:35

dr_willisRamses,  'colinux' has linux running in a virtual machine you access via xming on a windows box.. its not officially supportede here.. but its a neat tool.11:36
Ramsesa will llok at it, thanks11:36
dr_willisRamses,  andlinux is ubuntu setup with colinux (i think)  but its also not supported here..11:36
Ramsesok, maybe it is what I am looking for11:37
dr_willisRamses,  then theres good old virtualbox.11:37
jasonmspwell you can exit with Q so thats what I'll do for now.  Thanks!11:37
[HzF]Rocker@ActionParsnip: it listed some stuff, but nothing relates to wifi, except: "cfg80211: found new beacon on frequency 2472Mhz (Ch 13) on phy0"11:37
ActionParsnip[HzF]Rocker: nice, anything else?11:37
sam_muleramses: why don't you run in a VM11:38
[HzF]Rocker@ActionParsnip: it said wlan0 is not ready as well11:38
ActionParsnip[HzF]Rocker: any reason, should be stated in the dmesg output11:38

[HzF]RockerActionParsnip: i don't get what the "dmesg | tail" output meant, can you explain or shall i put it on pastebin so you can look?11:43
gryaum___: `man ffmpeg` might clarify that - if you have certain things you tried and which failed, just ask in here.11:43
damnoeth0 on my computer is damaged, so i use eth1  bt Vbox doesnt report eth1 to any virtual machine11:43
th0rdamno: vbox creates virtual interfaces. It should do NAT to whatever working interface you have on the host11:44
aum___gry, the `man ffmpeg` is very big i am just failed to follow it can you specify which switch to use11:44
damnoth0r: bt it doesnt11:44
ActionParsnip[HzF]Rocker: it's quite readable, its the kernel messages since boot. The reboot reduces the amount greatly. If you can get a wired connection you can always install wicd, uninstall network manager then reboot11:44

Balaji_TVRDear Ubuntu friends, I have some question related to Proxy settings. Could you pls. help answering...14:38
Balaji_TVRIn the "network proxy", I have two locations.14:38
Balaji_TVR1) Default (used for office with some proxy settings)14:38
Balaji_TVR2) Home (Used for home network, i.e, direct internet connection)14:38
Balaji_TVRHere my question is, when I switch from "office" location to "default" location, still the environtment variables (like https_proxy) are set and not resetting at all. This is forcing me to restart my laptop to get updated the new environtment settings.14:38
Balaji_TVRa)So, how to get the environment variables updated without restarting?14:38
Balaji_TVRb)Is there any way to automatic proxy config for home/office network?14:38

dr_willisdesignbybeck,  cube and unity fight...   if you dont set them up right..14:40
escottBalaji_TVR, the environment variables will only be changed by a logout/login. the network manager can only change the env for its session and any newly created sessions, but not for the existing session14:41
dr_willisdesignbybeck,  to reset compiz back to defaults ---> gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-114:42
Balaji_TVRThanks escott, Is there any way to set auto proxy settings between home and office network?14:42
escottBalaji_TVR, as for (b) what are you hoping to accomplish. is your main concern that when you switch connections you are now attempting to go through a proxy that doesn't exist14:42

dbolserhow do I change my touchpad settings?14:44
escottBalaji_TVR, i dont have much experience with proxies on my own machine, but one approach might be to install squid proxy on your local machine and force all your connections through it, you could then adjust squid to go through the corporate proxy or not depending upon the situation14:45

escottkrazykrivda, its called cross-compiling. you should find plenty of docs on how to do that16:28
ne2kkrazykrivda: it is unlikely, although not impossible, that your "phone" has the same architecture as your desktop16:29
krazykrivdaescott: ok thanks.. as always16:29
ne2kkrazykrivda: from bitter experience, I can tell you that by far the easiest way is to compile natively, if that is possible.16:29
ne2kkrazykrivda: i.e. compile on the phone itself.16:29
krazykrivdane2k: i don't even have gcc on the phone.. ha16:29

krazykrivdane2k: no it will not.. but I'm tryuing to compile and see how it works.. I'm not sure how to check if device does have econet16:39
rwweinseenai: yes, install it extended16:40
escottGuest15721, please do what the error message tells you and chkdsk the drive in windows. if you don't have a working windows system please don't use ntfs16:40
ne2kkrazykrivda: it's not the device that needs to have it, it's the kernel. the kernel econet module needs to be loaded16:40
szaleinseenai: primary partitions are not located on extended partitions; the extended partition _is_ a primary partition and holds virtual partitions16:40
krazykrivdane2k: yes.. but I"m not sure hwo to check the kernel for the econet module16:40
Ralph124ceinseenai: extended partition is fine - but you need to set up it's own logical partition.16:40

dr_willisGuest Nicks May want to select a actual Nick... via --->   /nick PickANick16:42

ne2kkrazykrivda: obviously to do a real attack the kernel would need to autoload it for you, because you can't modprobe unless you're root16:42
jribcraigbass1976: read changelog/source code16:42
einseenaiRalph124c, thanks, will it be ok, if i just resize opensuse's one and make free space, and then use as target partition, right?16:42
AcidRainas "usb camera" as its iProduct16:42
krazykrivdane2k: I would most likely need SU to run that16:42
ne2kkrazykrivda: yes you'd need to be root to do the modprobe for the test to see if the econet module is available16:43

escottGuest7529, the ntfs driver doesn't like something about your ntfs filesystem. not a lot you can do. you can try and manually mount things with ntfs-3g drivers. you could also try turning off features of the fs in windows (i think shadow copies are a problem)16:44
ne2kkrazykrivda: I guess just try it, then16:44
Ralph124ceinseenai: Yes, but backup OpenSuse data first. Repartitioning without backup works MOST of the time.16:44

designbybecki have: any & !title=MPlayer17:00
designbybeckbut that isn't working... any suggestions?17:00
escott[HzF]Rocker, not really. the things i know to check are that the driver is correct and loaded, that rfkill is off, and that nothing in /etc is preventing network manager from managing the device (if you put stuff in some network related files network manager will yield to manual control) you could try and connect manually to see if that last bit is the problem17:00
