xKrisxBenkinooby: where in there is suppose to help me with this problem?01:24
dr_willisSebo,  at the upstart homepage/docs. I got some neat links on upstart at  http://delicious.com/dr_willis01:24
dr_willisSebo,  the upstart cookbook/tips url is very handy01:24
aaasdr_willis: is there a way to get the name of the person you were just talking to?01:24
aaasdr_willis: like ".." in ubuntu for the last used directory01:24
dr_willisaaas,  that would be irc client dependent..01:25
Lasersaaas: Press up? (Not exactly the same -- but it shows the last line)01:25
dr_willisaaas,  never seen a nick completion shortcit like that in any of them01:25
BenkinoobyxKrisx: you want to disable "Browse removable media when inserted"01:25
dr_willisdiffernt irc clients handle tab differntly.01:25
aaasLasers: yeah i guess up arrow and ctrl arrows and backspace is much faster01:25
Guest14050ya sorry i went to the restroom01:25
dr_willisor just hit tab a few times till the right nick shows up.01:25
xKrisxthank you Benkinooby01:25

aaasdr_wills: but it's hard when there are lots of people, right?01:26
Guesst1337foxwolfblood: thank you01:26
dr_willisaaas,  tahts why you normally type the first letter or 2 then hit tab....01:26
zykotick9aaas, FYI "cd .." just takes you to the parent directory, "cd -" actually takes you BACK to last directory01:26
dr_willisalso why nicks that begin with _ or other weirdness are sort of frowned on.01:26

ubottulubuntu is a project to create a derivative of Ubuntu using the LXDE desktop environment. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu . /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.03:05
bazhangagike, openbox + lxde03:06
bazhangagike, install lubuntu-desktop if you wish to try it03:06
hermesbazhang, do you know any thing about sound issues?03:07
agikew30: 'better' is a personal thing. WattOS4 has just been released - http://www.planetwatt.com/03:07
bazhanghermes, you've been asked to post the results of your troubleshooting03:08
w30agike, Lubuntu is promoted as light weight in hard drive usage and cpu reqirements suited to these cheap notebooks that can just barely run XP03:08

ActionParsnipSilentmyst: is the file stored on an NTFS partition by any remote chance?03:11
Silentmysti can move it back and forth03:12
ActionParsnipSilentmyst: You cannot run your windows apps on your dual boot system using Wine, it simply won't run03:12
Silentmysti do it with alot of things03:12
ActionParsnipSilentmyst: you will need to remount your NTFS as setting ALL files as executable so that they are set. NTFS is too primitive to hold Linux file permissions03:12
personHey, trying to use KVM to test kernel changes, but having a hard time. Tried following this http://blog.vmsplice.net/2011/02/near-instant-kernel-development-cycle.html , but not sure what to use for the initrd argument03:13
Silentmystthats why i put it on my ntfs partition cause i can run things in wine off my ntfs partition and then when im in widows i just run it03:13
ActionParsnipSilentmyst: Unless the app is very portable it won't work. Apps need registry keys and file in the windows dir to run, otherwise they could be pirated so easily03:13
hermesbazhang: is that what everone is telling me to show?03:13
ActionParsnipSilentmyst: you will need to remount the NTFS and make it mount so that all files are executable03:14

yaboounderstand the theory, but not yet04:06
ActionParsnipcyberwave: so peole don't spam the channel with pastes04:06
blacksunsevenedbian, so no driver is in use?04:06
cyberwavebut don't you need only one flood bot?  why are there three?04:06
ActionParsnipyaboo: there is more than gnome to use for the DE04:06
yabooActionParsnip, DE?04:07
ActionParsnipcyberwave: not sure there personally :)04:07
edbianblacksunseven: If there is no 'drivers' list then yeah no driver.  There is probably some really low level basic driver that just shows text or something04:07
ActionParsnipyaboo: desktop environment = DE04:07
than_ruai don't know, i use Gnome 3 on kubuntu 11.04, will type on Gnome must use key space...04:07
ActionParsnipyaboo: KDE, LXDE, Gnome etc04:07
yabooActionParsnip, thanks04:07
blacksunsevenedbian, yeah, no drivers list04:07
ActionParsnipyaboo: in Linux you have choice, you don't have to use Unity04:07
edbianblacksunseven: That makes sense to me.  I would just sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-radeon   (to install the radeon driver) and then s04:08
yabooActionParsnip, thanks go back to classic, assume gnome2, same desktop as 10.1004:08
millertimek1a2m3hey, what kind of application can I use to set up a wiki server?"04:08

Bookmanurlin2u, I'm trying my first burn now with this program04:09
blacksunsevenedbian, apt didn't do anything since it thinks its already installed - should i remove and re-install?04:09
edbianblacksunseven: no that's fine, sudo modprobe radeon to try to get it to be used. then restart (what modules were listed?)04:09
blacksunsevenedbian, modprobe doesn't appear to have loaded the module04:11
ActionParsnipmethods: not sure there dude, you may fnid a ppa with it on which you can update with. Its all I can personally suggest. Maybe others can advise04:11

mark49ActionParsnip: sorry, I'm to n00b to follow your question...04:13
ActionParsnipmark49: use a terminal to unload and load the module driving the mouse04:14
blacksunsevenedbian, no good, same output/problems04:15
blacksunsevenedbian, do i need to have X running for a driver to load?04:15
edbianblacksunseven: I'm confused.  Are you in recovery mode right now?  I noticed to reboot you had to leave the IRC room.04:15
edbianblacksunseven: no, a driver being loaded should allow X to run.04:15

ActionParsnipblacksunseven: yes, simply connect with:  ssh -X -C username@server04:17

feng_I use vim + ctags in ubuntu Linux to browse source code, when there are more than one implement , say ioremap,  the vim just give the first implement , not giving a list of implement like in fedora. Why?05:57
dangbarryhey, I was wondering if anyone thinks that the following are security issue:  .bashrc .xinitrc and all .sh files. for example    echo "chromium lemonparty.org" >> .bashrc"  same with any .sh or .xinitrc.. by the way don't not go onto that website, its visually distrubing! last time it was (a bastard friend).. you could do other things like download from git, or wgets. and run them through .sh bashrc .xinitrc. This is easy stopped, by changing the premissions "05:57
ActionParsnipdangbarry: you can change permissions if you are concerned05:59
dangbarryi did!05:59
susundbe1gYeah, and they are not ment for 'public editing' -- i mean they are ment for running commands, that is the designed property. You cannot change that ..06:00
dangbarrybut should the not be by default!06:00
ActionParsnipdangbarry: log a bug if you suspect one06:00
ActionParsnipdangbarry: ".sh files" doesn't mean much in linux either ;)06:01
dangbarryits not that thing this is a bug, quite the opposite. i love the fact that we can do tonnes of things through these files. does nobody think that they should be read only?06:03
susundbe1gNo? They are ment for editing?06:03
dangbarryBut i mean to edit them, require sudo!06:04
susundbe1gi mean your $home/.bashrc should not be writable (or maybe even readable) for some other user but for your self sure06:04
susundbe1gwell /etc/ stuff should require sudo and they afaik do06:04
susundbe1gbut stuff in your /home/ is ment for user editing, and should not require sudo06:04
envygeekseverything in /etc/ is readable except for system user files (passwd, groups, shadow)06:05

ActionParsnippato: what are you doing to cause the message?06:15

cyphasehow can i install python 2.5.2 on natty alongside 2.7?06:23
envygeekscyphase: you compile your own python and name the binary and all it's folders python2.506:23
cyphaseenvygeeks, besides that :). preferably a repo..06:24
envygeeksafaik python2.5 is dead, everyone is moved to 2.606:24
envygeeksor (rarely) 306:24
patoActionParsnip: I think I found the case based on that post. I am guessing the windows backend is not playing along sometimes, and the cifs mount has too big of a parameter. I'll see if I reconfigure that mount point and fix the problem. Thank you for your help on this.06:25

gryflametai1: Sure.06:52
gryoisgam: Hi!06:52
oisgamhey guys i'm new user of ubuntu and i was wondering if there´s any way to get gnome 3 keeping unity?06:53
Lasersoisgam: You can't have both.06:54
milamber!gnome3 | oisgam06:54
ubottuoisgam: Gnome 3 is not currently supported on Ubuntu. A PPA for natty is available at https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3 but these packages are EXPERIMENTAL and UNSTABLE, will break Unity and possibly other parts of your system, and cannot be downgraded safely.06:54
oisgamT_T ok ...06:54
johndobut if you really like the dock I've had some luck with dockbarx06:54
oisgami got docky and works good with unity06:55
_NJSDDngddsgI am using Linux Mint right now and I think to change to Ubuntu. Should I change to Ubuntu ?06:55
gry_NJSDDngddsg: if you like06:56

fr500mint's owner?06:57
fr500as in personal issues?06:57

fr500_NJSDDngddsg: pretty much the same thing mate06:58
milamber_NJSDDngddsg: is there a reason to change?06:59
urlin2u_NJSDDngddsg, your obviously pining to talk about your problems don't do it here.06:59
_NJSDDngddsgmilamber: personal problems with clement lefebvre, mint owner, this is the only06:59
urlin2u_NJSDDngddsg, this s not a mint anything s=channel stop it.07:00
milamber_NJSDDngddsg: that means no then. in my experience change for change sake is not something to do for anything that matters. come on back if you try ubuntu and have support questions :)07:00
oisgamwell also i have some issues, and i wanna know how to solve them. once i've configured the compizcube and the compiz effects and all that stuff the loading screen of ubuntu look creeppy and show somo messages but they disapear too fast i can read them07:01
fr500_NJSDDngddsg: if you have issues... well then change07:01
fr500while there are important differences, for the common user it's all skin deep07:01
oisgami don wanna change i´m the other guy07:02

JoeR1No one needs to remind me that this is NOT the wine room therefore I know this is a long shot but I was hoping someone might have some insight into lag issues I am having with Starcraft Brood War under wine.07:08

milambersheepherd: when working with filesystems/mounts, df is another good one07:09
questionsaboutWhich Ubuntu should I use ß07:09
tensorpuddingquestionsabout: you can use natty, and configure compiz the way you want07:10
sheepherdmilamber, makes sense, ty! you think its a good idea to reformat that drive to ext4? since it would better fit ubuntu and is overall superior afaik07:10
tensorpuddingquestionsabout: no guarantees that it will be stable to your desires though07:10
questionsaboutyes and do you think !!:!= is not stable qnough07:10
tensorpuddingquestionsabout: but no ubuntu has ever been that stable07:10
tensorpuddingthat i haven't had a bug07:10
JoeR1what number is natty? ( god I hate those stupid animal based nick names)07:10

ActionParsnipSyria: did you md5 test the iso you downloaded?07:17
ActionParsnipJoeR1: wine is on topic as it is in the official ubuntu repos07:18
SyriaActionParsnip:  ٍSure, I am trying to install it using an external hard disc and used ubuntu usb start up creator.07:19
JoeR1ActionParsnip, well I have had people bust my hump in this room for asking wine questions so I can never be sure07:19
fr500JoeR1: with wine, as a general rule, your mileage may vary07:19
JoeR1fr500 - I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean07:19
ActionParsnipJoeR1: did you check the appdb for compatibility?07:20
fr500JoeR1: wine is wonderful, but results are never guarranteed07:20
fr500JoeR1: and to your question, define lag07:20
fr500is it low FPS, or real lag as in high ping?07:20
JoeR1 ActionParsnip As I stated before, Yes I did check the appdb and #winehq before coming here07:20

sheepherdso... couple questions left. first off, i cant start banshee anymore. i get following error: http://goo.gl/ZZPOG . i dont see any process running07:23
fr500but that's in Windows07:23
JoeR1ActionParsnip, wine 1.2.307:23
ActionParsnipabhinav_singh: dpkg -l | grep gnome | grep lib     should do it07:23
fr500JoeR1: in wine I'd guess there should be a 20-40% performance penalty07:24
fr500it's pretty broad07:24
fr500and app dependant07:24
JoeR1fr500 - that game doesn't even have graphics settings but yes I should blow the req's out of the water that is why i suspect it is a matter of settings in wine07:24
ActionParsnipJoeR1: uninstall it. Add the wine ppa and install 1.3  it may help07:24
JoeR1action - perhaps, one moment07:25
fr500JoeR1: even if you do in Windows07:25

sheepherdwhat could be the issue here?07:25

triplcmust i install pulseaudio to get gnome-settings-daemon to control audio volume (via multimedia keys), ubuntu 10.04 ? i install a slim (no gnome, only settings-daemon) ubuntu but do not know how to get the volume control correctly. i thought that gnome 2 does not require/demand pulseaudio07:25
fr500JoeR1: that doesn't mean it will be the same in linux with wine07:25
ActionParsnipJoeR1: also make sure the app is fully updated07:25
JoeR1fr500 - even at an 80% performance drop I should have starcraft licked07:25
JoeR1ActionParsnip, it is, of that I am certain07:25

sheepherdbullgard4, yep sry :)07:27
ActionParsnipJoeR1: wine 1.3 may be the ticket. Wine is a strange beast. Also see if cedega or crossoveroffice run it07:27
milamberbullgard4_: NC means not compatible with dos or os/2, hope you don't need that  :/07:27

JoeR1ActionParsnip, I am just running updates with apt-get, if that doesn't work I'll go after a clean wipe07:28
sheepherdbullgard4, so back to my question... to you mean restarting compiz? im not sure what you mean with GUI07:29
ActionParsnipJoeR1: could also see if there are vids on YouTube of people running it and ask how they got it going07:29
sheepherdbullgard4, *do07:29
ActionParsnipJoeR1: natty repos don't have 1.307:29
bullgard4_milamber: Thank you for explaining. --  No, fortunately I do not need any DOS or OS/2 compatibility.07:29
JoeR1ActionParsnip, no, that was also fruitless as any video made recently was concerning Starcarft 2, what with the recent-ish release and all07:30

bullgard4_sheepherd: What do you mean by "separately"?07:51
DoggetI used to have a 4850 ati graphic card and I never had any issue with it. I swapped to a 6850 which is stopping me from installing 11.04. If I swap the 6850 for my old 4850 I can put 11.04, if I put the 6850 back in I can't, even if 11.04 was installed previously using the 4850 card.07:51

DoggetAnybody who can help me out with my 11.04 install/upgrade?07:57
ObrienDaveFriGiN: I had better luck using LinuxPenDrive. Then burned .iso to dvd and installed to an UNformatted stick.07:57
i42nWhat is the difference between upgrade and dist-upgrade?07:57
CloverHello all07:58
sheepherdbullgard4, and this is just one package among 10 others which only showed up in the update manager07:58
Kartagis!english > aztek07:58
bullgard4_sheepherd: Because industrious Ubuntu maintainers every day are improving packages in quality and are delivering them to repositories.07:58
FriGiNObrienDave, dl'n now.07:58
milamberFriGiN: do you have a smaller usb stick to try?07:58
ObrienDaveFriGiN: k07:59
FriGiNthe 2gb stick shows as 1.87 and its shy of the necessary 2gb for the one image i need.07:59
FriGiNObrienDave, http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/ ?08:00

haaalpis there a way to install ubuntu without removing ALL partitions? :O because i have a ntfs partition where a keep all my stuff that i want to save08:02
Lasershaaalp: Make a backup.08:02
Lasershaaalp: Buy new hard drives. They're cheap.08:02
i42nhaaalp: just select at install that you want to keep the windows stuff08:02
bullgard4_haaalp: Yes. This is possible.08:03
haaalpthen how? without buying a new HDD?08:04
bullgard4_haaalp: Use the Ubuntu installer program intelligently.08:04
FriGiNlike i42n said, when installing you can choose to dual boot08:04
Tomikassshow to move icons to bottom in ubuntu??08:04
haaalpyeah but i dont want to dualboot08:04
FriGiNyou can regrub and remove the windows partition info in the boot.08:05
Tomikasssfrom left side to bottom08:05
FriGiNthen kill the /windows for space efficacy..08:05
Lasershaaalp: Why don't you want to buy new hard drive? I guess that NTFS partition isn't important if you're about to play with new toys without reading any manuals.08:05
haaalpi dont want to buy new ones since i already have 4 that i use! -.-08:06
Guest3258I could some assist me, I want to burn a movie to a DVD so I can play it in my DVD player, how would I go about it using Brasero?08:06
Lasershaaalp: They all are full? Use one of them for Ubuntu.08:06
i42nLasers: It is possible without buying new hdd, so why spending more money?08:06
haaalpyes actually, they are full, this is the only one that's not08:07

paszo2008hallo i have question how to enter grub during booting if ubuntu is only operating system ?08:08
Laserspaszo2008: Hold SHIFT if you're on GRUB2. (I believe).08:09
paszo2008i tried holding shift but with no results08:09
bullgard4_!grub2 | paszo200808:09
ubottupaszo2008: 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)08:09
joricki installed ubuntu's GRUB on the partition-level (instead of on the disk level). this laptop already had a GRUB on the hard disk level which does things like restoring windows etc… how would i link the two grub's together? how do i get into grub's config?08:09
paszo2008yes i am on grub 208:09
GrindCrusherpress 'c' when the menu comes up08:09
LasersI think Grub2 is hidden by default (until you hold shift during bootup).08:09
Cyb3rjunkLasers u r right08:10
gjxhello everybody08:11
Cyb3rjunkbut why grub 2 is used in only Ubuntu based distros ?08:11

ObrienDaveacerz: switch under button bad?08:16
paszo2008holding shift during bootup doesnot work :/ - i have installed newest ubuntu on vbox08:17
acerzLasers: it is only a few months old and there is no hardware problem... everything workds well in windows 7 and in windows xp but when I switch to ubuntu, the problem shows up08:17
Lasersacerz: Well. Come back in when you're by your hardware.08:17
ObrienDaveacerz: sounds like driver issue to me08:17
acerzmust be a driver issuew08:18
Lasersacerz: Otherwise we can't help much. You lack make/model specs. It's probably xorg issue if it didn't work out of the box fine.08:18
acerzso no solution can be foud here?08:18
acerzall the others online solve this issue but disable other feaures at the same time08:19

gryquestionsabout, Like I already said you have lots of options, including attempts to make peace, ignrore the owner, or pick another distro, and there is nothing other people can help you with other than help with settling things in a distro if they don't work as good as you like09:33

m_ritehttp://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/30/Unity3Final.png can i get this launcher in gnome?09:39
Lasersm_rite: That's Unity.09:40
LasersDefault in 11.0409:41
m_riteLasers: yes. it's just: i want my usual panels and only that launcher09:41
BlueWolfDose anyone know a program use for creating web pages? A simple program for a beginner but the best? Prefribly a program that writes the Html code for you?09:42
th0rBlueWolf: kompozer?09:42
m_riteLasers: that launcher is really awesome, better than navigating through menus. i want it. but i don't like how unity handles open tasks so i'd like to have a hybrid of the two. any suggestions?09:43
Lasersm_rite: I have no idea because I don't use 11.04. Unity does that? Left side panel. If you want old panels, see !classic09:44
m_ritei have the old panels since i log in with classic. i just want that launcher09:44
LasersThen go back to Unity. Don't log in with classic.09:45
BlueWolfth0r: Is it user Friendly?09:45
th0rBlueWolf: yes, but picky about who it makes friends with09:46
m_riteLasers: with unity comes the whole sidebar icon only ordeal that i don't want09:47
LasersWell, that's part of Unity. It's a compiz plugin.09:48
ubottuUnity is the default UI for Ubuntu 11.04. Unity is a shell for GNOME. see http://unity.ubuntu.com. You can still boot to the classic GNOME desktop; see !classic.09:48
BlueWolfth0r: Ha ha ha, If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.09:48
m_riteLasers: full circle. i don't want the sidebar, i just want the launcher09:48
wildbatis there any tools in ubuntu that can mount/edit WIM  images?09:49

urgruNews from the "wireless trouble courner": AP is found but 11.04 doesn't want to connect; configurations see: http://paste.ubuntuusers.de/402087/ and http://paste.ubuntuusers.de/402092/09:57
bjhaidi have a bash script that runs with bash vas.sh start, if i want it to run as a daemon (run at startup), how do i get that done?10:03
urgruwireless does work with different OS on the same machine.10:03
urgruwireless card is a PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection10:04
envygeeksWhat OS are you on about that works urgru? If it's Fedora then it's because they backport Wireless updates, for Ubuntu you'll have to wait till 11.10 for Kernel 310:05
th0rurgru: I have had problems getting encryption to work in the past. You might try first turning off encryption to determine if that is the problem10:05
BlueWolfDose any one know what is the best Antivirus for Ubuntu? I move alot of documents into my windows partition and I don't feel a need to expose it to the internet to put an Antivirus on. So I want to scan things before I move it into windows?10:06
firebird89hi, how can i apply "convert file1.tiff file1.png" to all files in a directory at once?10:06

jerriyCan somebody tell me why I open this page (below) in Firefox I can't open the bbc page but I get an XML error page?10:08
bjhaidi have a bash script that runs with bash vas.sh start, if i want it to run as a daemon (run at startup), how do i get that done?10:09
jerriyWhat does this mean?: "This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below"10:10
jerriyWhy does firefox open a "document tree" text page instead of the webpage?10:10
BlueWolfth0r: Thanks, Is it reliable though?10:10
th0rBlueWolf: I have used clam on both windows and linux installs for years with no problems. But then again...my web usage is rather conservative10:11
urgruth0r: http://paste.ubuntu.com/666366/10:11
envygeeksjerriy: the problem is with you, I had no problem opening the page, and all browsers have a DOM tree, that is the core of HTML, it's showing yo uthe DOM tree because it has nothing better to show you10:12
jerriy envygeeks: I have no idea what you're talking about10:12
envygeeksjerriy: in the end, it's either you or your ISP making a mistake, that page has no display issues10:13
th0rurgru: are you using the native linux modules for that card? If so, you might try using the windows drivers via ndiswrapper. While the windows driver decreased the sensitivity of my internal card it did improve the stability of the connection10:13
jabdennelCan someone explain to me the difference between aptitude and apt-get? I've heard that there isn't much difference10:14
Polahjabdennel: aptitude is a front-end for apt. They do the same thing really.10:14
jerriy envygeeks: No I do know it is me (I have other browsers and it shows the page correctly) so what did I do wrong and (more to the point) what'd I need to do to alter the Firefox (I have already disabled all addons but to no avail)10:15
llutzjabdennel: both are different apt-frontends, aptitude has some advantages in solving and removing dependemcies10:15
oberthow many Rome,Europe are in Europe?10:15
gryjabdennel ^10:15
sveinseWhat setting controls that windows maximizes if I drag them to the top edge?10:15
envygeeksjerriy: clear your cache, open up firefox from the terminal and see if it complains and go from there that's all you can do10:15
jabdennelok, just checking. I'm kinda new to using linux so it threw me off when I checked for something online and they were like "Hey, type this in: sudo aptitude etc"10:16
urgruth0r : i sticked to the original ubuntu drivers because  they worked before on 11.04. The problem only appeared some days ago.10:16
BlueWolfth0r: Ok I have both Installed how do I update them or set them to update? Start with clam.10:16
oberti dont get this damn time issue10:16
urgruth0r: can you guide me through installing the ndiswrapper drivers?10:17
llutzjabdennel: aptitude is debians preferred tool since a while, apt-get is older and more common to all debian-derives. use whatever you like, but you should stay at one tool10:17
th0rBlueWolf: run clamtk and in the Help menu you can check for updates10:17
jabdennelI'll stick with "apt-get" :D10:17
th0rurgru: install ndis-gtk...from there it is a piece of cake10:17
th0rurgru: you will need to remove the linux module from /etc/module if you added it there. If you didn't, then you need to blacklist it in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf10:18

urgruth0r: sorry, but i'm lost10:21

ikoniathat's not the page, that's the xml that defines the video11:00
jerriyikonia: but I do have access to the page in other websites so I know that the web address is a white page with a video11:01
jribikonia: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b013y4gm seems to load up as a "normal looking" web page for me though11:01
ikoniait's not - it's an XML file11:01
jerriyikonia: that's what I mean :)11:01
jribjerriy: have you tried things like clearing cache?  disabling extensions? firefox safe-mode? new firefox profile?  fresh new ubuntu user?11:01
jribjerriy: ... different browser?11:02
ikoniajrib: the page loads fine for me also11:02
jerriyjrib: yes I've done' that11:02
jribjerriy: and what were the results in each case?11:02
DebiansArmyjerriy: depends on the browser if it loads correctly11:02
ravenevolution only crosses out deleted messages instead of deleting it - what could be wrong?11:03
jerriyALL other browsers I've already in my system (opera chrome...) show the page normally only firefox is causing me trouble (I suppose it's something to do with how it is set up but the question is WHAT?11:03
jribjerriy: it is unlikely a setup issue if it doesn't happen with a fresh new ubuntu user11:04
ravenevolution only crosses out deleted messages instead of deleting it - what could be wrong?11:04
DebiansArmyWell using firefox no problems ... Now its time to clean firefox up and see if you had added any add-ons that may change page layout...11:04
jerriyjrib: what issue is it then?11:04
jerriyDebiansArmy: depends on what?11:05
jribjerriy: don't know.  I'd google the error and scroll through the results while you wait11:05
Satisfiedoh thats interesting, so firefox 5 and 6 are not available for ubuntu.  I wonder why that is11:05
auronandace!info firefox | Satisfied11:06
DebiansArmyjerriy: Done webpage design before not all browsers are set to view all webpages in the exact layout... Try a couple flash websites with different browsers your going to get a different layout11:06

* jrib has firefox 5 in ubuntu...11:06
bjhaidjrib: i see where the error is, i do not need to do it with root permission, anyway this can be done so i do not get it done as root?11:06
jribbjhaid: can you show me the error?  Your script isn't being run as root unless you are logging in as root11:07
DebiansArmyjerriy: you didn't happen to invert colors by pressing alt+n???11:07
jerriyDebiansArmy: but what is making OTHER people's firefox (I assume some of you here have that) not blocking the page11:07
Satisfiedya but why have they made it so difficult to install?  linux not good enough to run the latest versions in a stable way?11:07
jribjerriy: if you have natty-updates or natty-security repositories (which you should), you will get firefox 5 through update manager11:08

bjhaidjrib: i have changed the privileges of the file, so i think that's the problem, i think i need to remove those privileges11:10

jerriygry: Is "nuking" the only option? I thought it was a simple question of tweaking some about-config or userchrome file or something11:11

DebiansArmyjerriy: I don't know what u changed or what has changed for you ... jrib gives a solid answer that your browser could have updated to firefox 5... Mine keeps asking to update... But I'm not a beta tester or having any desire to mess with all of linux in this transition from grub to grub 2 to linux 3.0 there are lots of bugs system wide....

jerriyDebiansArmy: I do have upgraded to FF 5 (despite the official Lucid firefox still being 311:13
bjhaidjrib: thanks, let me try again and see if it works11:13
gryjerriy: that is in no way a wise thing to do when things are borked - the default setup allows to view the page properly; you may need to run ``firefox -safe-mode' and see if the page loads then assuming you close Firefox entirely before doing that. If the safe mode does not help, you will need to reinstall Firefox (aptitude reinstall firefox) and re-try; then try the new profile like...11:13

jribbeginner: just to be clear, you don't mean idle time of 1 hour, you want them logged off after 1 hour even if they are working on something?11:17
DebiansArmyjerriy: In what way, people run raids and have different video card support and needs not everyones system is the same... clean cache or reinstall firefox... I usually just reinstall programs that is the reason I do backups to cdrws or external hard drive... This is the price we pay to play.... I like the fact linux ubuntu, fedora, arch linux and rest of the linux community upgrades you...11:17

blinkizDebiansArmy, Yeah, tried that. Converted the pdf to png and started to zoom. But the text is not rendered so it's just fuzzy11:29
jribbjhaid: if you mean, that should sort out your path issues, it won't.  If you really don't want to use the full path, then you need to change "rackup" to "./rackup" and "rails" to "./rails"11:29

compdoc[THC]AcidRain, running a firewall or iptables?14:04

compdoc[THC]AcidRain, what are the folder and file permissions? I use rsync, and if the permissions arent right, it doesnt work well14:05
[THC]AcidRainas you can see other users have no access!14:05
[THC]AcidRainbut i dont think it will even let me change permissions on it!14:05
khfenox4 reinstall grub might help14:05
Enox4khf- How?14:06
khfi have had that happen14:06
compdocyou can always change permissions as root14:06
Enox4grub rescue> seems to not support any commands.14:06
uetlischwurhello, could some1 mention be a good reason why "sudo cp -vr ~/big_folder" takes more time than copying the filder with nautilus?14:06
uetlischwuradd on: nautilus is not in sudo mode14:06
b0otHow dangerous is it to dd from a live disk?14:06
Enox4b0ot- You probably won't get a consistant image.14:06
Enox4ie, things will change.  And the destination will be messed up.14:07
khfwell i used a boot disc to reinstall.grub14:07
uetlischwurb0ot: might happen that some files will be corrupted14:07
Enox4khf- Once I get the boot disk, what do I do?14:07
[THC]AcidRaindrwx------ 1 acidrain acidrain 4096 2011-08-15 08:58 My_Documents - doesnt do anything. yet no error message14:07
b0otuetlischwur, Enox4 ok... but the original should be fine right?14:07
icerootb0ot: the image after may be broken14:07
theadminuetlischwur: -v can make certain terminals slow down because they need to process all the output. Try redirecting it to a logfile.14:07
[THC]AcidRain sudo chmod -rwxrwxrwx My_Documents/ ***14:07
Enox4b0ot- Yes, be very careful not to screw up "if=" and "of="14:07
m_ritehey guys, i don't want to type my password everytime i sudo something. so i put myusername ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL into /etc/sudoers but it's still asking for the pw. any suggestions?14:07
b0oticeroot, will the one that was source be alright?14:07
iceroot[THC]AcidRain: dont!! use 77714:07
icerootb0ot: yes14:08
compdoc[THC]AcidRain, drwx------ limits it to one particular user, and nothing else14:08
b0otI asked a friend to backup my harddrive and he dd'ed from the a live disk and I want to make it couldn't have hurt my original14:08
theadminm_rite: That looks right, it shouldn't be asking for passwords this way.14:08
khfb0ot if you.mean from a live cd then it is ok14:08
[THC]AcidRainiceroot, im just trying to make any type of change in permissiosn now14:08
[THC]AcidRainit wont let me change them14:08
theadminm_rite: Did you edit sudoers manually or using visudo? If manually, it can fail14:08
uetlischwurtheadmin: ok, i'll benchmark w/o -v option14:08
iceroot[THC]AcidRain: read-only mounted?14:08
[THC]AcidRainhmmm.... how do i mount otherwise?14:09
compdoc[THC]AcidRain, you prolly need to stop the ftp service before making changes14:09
m_ritetheadmin: first with nano, i tried with visudo later14:09
[THC]AcidRaincompdoc, i tried that14:09
compdocisnt there a config file that forces permissions?14:09
b0otkhf, no he used dd with the source partition as the one currently mounted at root. I'm going to redo it with a b0otable version of ubuntu14:09
[THC]AcidRaincompdoc, i thought so14:09
theadminm_rite: Is the line saying "%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL" located AFTER your entry, or BEFORE?14:09
theadminm_rite: It has to be BEFORE it.14:10
[THC]AcidRainperhaps because its an ntfs system? or i could of sworn that i reformatted to ext3...14:10
khfthat.is.the recommended.option14:10
m_riteit's before14:10
theadminm_rite: Okay, now that's totally weird14:10
uetlischwurhi, copying 1.6GB within ~ 25 Minutes with ~1MB/s ... is that normal?14:10
m_riteyes. :D14:10
theadminm_rite: Sounds like a bug to me14:10
uetlischwurhi, copying 1.6GB within ~ 25 Minutes with ~1MB/s ... is that normal? copy fomr hdd to pen drive14:11
theadminuetlischwur: Pendrive? Yes, rather normal... I guess14:11
coz_uetlischwur,  depends on the speed of the pen drive ,, some are slow14:11
coz_uetlischwur,  rather the transfer speed can be slow on some14:11
m_ritetheadmin: http://pastebin.com/8cRBC8LR14:12
[THC]AcidRainuetlischwur, ive never seen it that slow14:12
khfi usually get.faster speeds14:12
uetlischwurtheadmin: coz_ [THC]AcidRain it's a corsair pen drive... i know it can do more than 1.5 MB14:12
uetlischwurtheadmin: coz_ [THC]AcidRain it's a corsair pen drive... i know it can do more than 1.5 MB/s14:12

theadminm_rite: Put the line with your username at the very bottom of the file.14:13
coz_uetlischwur,  what type of files are being transferred?14:13
uetlischwurcoz_: random... mostly documents, pdf, images... no vids14:14
m_ritetheadmin: seems to work14:14
coz_uetlischwur,  ok then that sounds slow ,,,14:14
m_ritetheadmin: thanks14:14
uetlischwurcoz_: how can i find out if i use a usb1 port14:14
theadminm_rite: Also, normally usernames do not contain uppercase letters... Did you adduser --force-badname?14:14
theadminm_rite: That can give you problems. Just saying :D14:14
khfvinu windows will overwrite your.main.boot sector so you will need to.reinstall grub.to.boot ubuntu again14:14

amin`x:5:respawn:/usr/sbin/lightdm -nodaemon doesnot start the lightdm and I went straight to tty. what should i do to run it?14:16
theadminm_rite: later definitions overwrite earlier ones.14:16
uetlischwurcoz_: usb1 speed is 1.5 Mbit/s or 12Mbit/s14:16
theadminm_rite: So, since %admin definition was later, it was more important.14:16
uetlischwurcoz_: usb2 speed is maximum bandwidth of 480 Mbit/s (60 MB/s) (now called "Hi-Speed")14:16
coz_uetlischwur,  so that is about the rate of transfer you are having ... yes?14:16
m_ritetheadmin: i see, thanks14:17
uetlischwurcoz_: got that from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB214:17
=== Gujs_ is now known as Gujs
ThinkT510amin`: what distro do you use?14:17
coz_uetlischwur,  so you are having usb1 transfer rates ...yes?14:17
uetlischwurcoz_: ok, right now the file transfer dialoge shows me 2.7MB/sec14:17

amin`ThinkT510: Iwant to add lightdm to inittab14:17
=== vastu is now known as pgulley
=== ru6yxx is now known as cheekee
uetlischwurcoz_: so it's 20Mbit14:18
coz_uetlischwur,  I would test it , ,when that is finished, with individual files,, to see if the transfer rate increases14:18
uetlischwurcoz_: so it has to be usb214:18
ThinkT510amin`: ok, let me rephrase: why are you crossposting in #ubuntu and #archlinux ?14:18
coz_uetlischwur,  unless you have a reallly ancient system,, it's likely usb214:18
uetlischwurcoz_: so it seems to be a very slow usb214:18
uetlischwurcoz_: no, its a 2 year old netbook14:18
coz_uetlischwur,  it could be a caching issue ,, I have a 4 gig  pen drive ,, it started out painfully slow,  now it is speedy,, what happend?  I have no idea14:19
coz_uetlischwur,  that 2 year old netbook most definitly is usb214:19
compdocwhen I log into a computer with VNC and run the Update-Manager, if it requires a reboot and I click Restart, the machine doesnt restart. Gnome quits (the desktop goes away) but it stops there. Update-Manager remains running, but its stuck - cant open a terminal or anything.  I have to logon with SSH and issue sudo reboot. Any ideas?14:19
theadminamin`: If you have Arch, you just modify the DAEMONS=() array in rc.conf. As for Ubuntu, "man update-rc.d"14:20
uetlischwurcoz_: ok, on the other hand... i started copying and then asked here ... i asked 16:10 now it's 16:2014:20
Atharvavinu : I dont know whether this steps will work or not but still take it as an experiment and in WinXP go to Start-Run-msconfig14:20
amin`ThinkT510: because first the arch buddyies are bunch of underage kids and the second lightdm is the launchpad project and the third i appropriate the help. and I know i am wrong to do it here but here is the best14:20
coz_uetlischwur,  whoa,, how far into the transfer is it now?14:20
uetlischwurcoz_: finished14:20
amin`theadmin: how about inittab?14:20
uetlischwurcoz_: so its 1.6GB in 10 minutes14:20
coz_uetlischwur,  ok  test a single file  to see what the transfer rate it14:21
bazhangamin`, are you using ubuntu14:21
coz_uetlischwur,  that is a long time for 1.6 gigs14:21
theadminamin`: Got nothing to do with inittab.14:21
ThinkT510amin`: i feel you should know that ubuntu uses upstart and arch doesn't by default14:21
amin`bazhang: as an chroot media14:21
ThinkT510!init | amin`14:21
ubottuamin`: Boot options: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions - To add/remove startup services, you can use the package 'bum', or update-rc.d - To add your own startup scripts, use /etc/rc.local - See also !grub and !dualboot - Making a boot floppy: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto/BootFloppy - Also see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SmartBootManagerHowto14:21
bazhangamin`, chroot to archlinux?14:21
uetlischwurcoz_: is is 21Mbit/sec14:21
amin`bazhang: yes14:21
coz_uetlischwur,  mmm14:22
theadminamin`: And, ThinkT510 is right. Arch uses a BSD-style SystemD boot system. It's TOTALLY different, and Ubuntu people will *not* be able to help you with that.14:22
amin`ThinkT510: any idea about inittab?14:22
theadminamin`: Go to #archlinux14:22
amin`theadmin: again sorry14:22
uetlischwurcoz_: i got few  FAT: Directory bread(block 15356) failed in dmesg...14:22
bazhangamin`, this is ubuntu support not arch support please dont ask further14:22
coz_uetlischwur,   ah oh... ok that one I am not sure of14:23
uetlischwurbut that was before attaching the pendrive coz_14:23
ThinkT510theadmin: he is there, he crossposted14:23
coz_uetlischwur,  oh ok  so that single file suggests that it is transferring properly...yes?14:23
uetlischwurcoz_: i didn't do any single files now.. only my big folder14:23
uetlischwurcoz_: let me go for a big file14:23
amin`Guys, lightdm is launchpad project. even arch compiles it straight out off launchpad14:24
coz_uetlischwur,  oh ok,, well at that speed it sounds right14:24
amin`again sorry14:24
bazhangamin`, dont be sorry, just stop asking14:24
amin`Look at the difference between 2 channels14:24
theadminamin`: Sooo? You're not asking for lightdm help14:24
theadminamin`: You're asking for systemd help, which is not only *not* an Ubuntu project, but even totally unsupported in Ubuntu.14:25
[THC]AcidRainwow. gparted is a waste of time. as far as out-of-the-box work goes14:25
ionosphr1/join/j #defocus14:25
Piciamin`: Ubuntu is also a project that is built on Launchpad. But that doesn't mean that they have anything else in common.14:25
amin`theadmin: you mean for inittab option i need systemd installed14:25
theadminbazhang: Thanks.14:26
bazhang[THC]AcidRain, actual support issue with it?14:26
[THC]AcidRainbazhang, it just wont do anything. always says pending14:26
[THC]AcidRainit will detect devices, then when i tell it to do something. it just pends14:27
[THC]AcidRainsudo mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1       - is this not the way to change filesystem?14:28
bazhang[THC]AcidRain, the devices are still mounted?14:28
[THC]AcidRainbazhang, no sir14:28
coz_[THC]AcidRain,   i would check that to be sure  just in case14:28
[THC]AcidRainwell actually i get an error saying device is busy14:29
theadmincoz_: If the device is mounted, it'll say "Device mounted - will not make filesystem here!"14:29
[THC]AcidRainbut when i do sudo umount /dev/sdb1 i get device not mounted14:29
coz_theadmin,  understood14:29
[THC]AcidRainin gparted, it says the filesystem is ext3... with sudo fdisk -l, it says file system is ntfs...14:30
[THC]AcidRainwhich one should i trust?14:30
uetlischwurcoz_: ok, i stoped with a swatch and got 5646.4Mb in 170 seconds one big movie file... results in 33.2 Mb/s14:31
theadmin[THC]AcidRain: fdisk often acts weirdly, try cfdisk14:31
coz_uetlischwur,  thats much better14:31
theadmin[THC]AcidRain: Also, you can't mkfs if you have gparted running14:31
coz_uetlischwur,  I am not sure then why that first attempt was sl slow14:31
auronandace[THC]AcidRain: have you applied changes in gparted?14:32
coz_so slow14:32
[THC]AcidRaintheadmin, i didnt have it running14:32
[THC]AcidRainauronandace, i just reopened gparted and it said it was not a ext3 after i ran the terminal command14:32
uetlischwurcoz_: top speed for usb2 is 480Mb/s ... even if i consider overhead with 50% i am at 33Mb/s comapred to 240Mb/s :(14:33
[THC]AcidRaincfdisk is very scary. where should it say what filesystem it is?14:33
coz_uetlischwur,  i dont have an answer... maybe check in #hardware  or ##linux,,, someone in either place may have a better explanation than I do14:33
theadmin[THC]AcidRain: Um, oh... right, it doesn't even deal with filesystems. Just see if the disk type is "Linux", it'd help14:34
[THC]AcidRaintheadmin,                           Pri/Log   Free Space                      160031.0514:34
[THC]AcidRainthats only information...14:34
[THC]AcidRainunder FS Type, it says "Free Space"14:34

ThePendulumHey. I've got a problem. Everytime my PC returns from Suspend, my internet connection isn't working. I've tried disconnecting/reconnecting, and to disable/enable networking. The only thing that seems to work is to physically plug in/out my internet cable14:35
thunsuckercoz_: i think it has a problem or two, i think i'll stick with 10.0414:36
thunsuckerThePendulum, what version of ubuntu do you have14:36
ThePendulumthunsucker: 11.0414:36
coz_thunsucker,  the mini iso works well  ,, however , as i said , I have not tried it with vbox,, it may indeed have an issue with it that I am not aware of14:36
thunsuckerThePendulum, hmmm i know that 10.04 had a lot of issues with that14:36
thunsuckercoz_, yes i've used it many many times but tried 11.04 the other day and it didn't go so well14:37
ThePendulumthunsucker: I guess they haven't been solved in 11.04 yet :O Or I'm just doing something incredibly wrong14:37
coz_thunsucker,  did you try the live cd in vbox for 11.04 ?14:37
thunsuckercoz_, no this site has low bandwidth, and i'm impatient lol14:37
[THC]AcidRaini dont even trust gparted14:37
[THC]AcidRainit does things way to fast14:37
coz_thunsucker,  oh :)14:37
[THC]AcidRaini click on "create new partition ext3" and it creates it yet says pending...14:38
thunsuckerThePendulum, jus ta moment let me look around, is it a desktop or laptop?14:38
coz_[THC]AcidRain,  out of curiosity,, how large is the drive?14:38
ThePendulumthunsucker: It's a desktop. It's a physical connection, not wi-fi14:38
ThinkT510[THC]AcidRain: after you make your changes, you need to click apply14:39
szal[THC]AcidRain: in my experience GParted does nothing before you click Accept14:39
[THC]AcidRainsudo mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1 -is my exact command14:39
[THC]AcidRainhmmm... ok. i didnt see accept button. let me try after this is done formatting14:39

[THC]AcidRaindude wtf14:46
coz_carif,  what type of mouse?14:46
ThePendulumthunsucker: The thread seems to deal with wireless connections that become invisible. I am using a physical cable connection, and it's visible after suspend, but it just won't connect14:46
[THC]AcidRainfdisk says its a linux fs, gparted says same thing. but now "blkid" says this: /dev/sdb1: LABEL="Server" UUID="36600BB8600B7E3D" TYPE="ntfs"14:46
carl-coz_: normal usb i think14:46
coz_carif,  if it is not  a lazer mouse it should work,, what issues are you having?14:46
[THC]AcidRainagain, which one should i believe?14:47
theadmin[THC]AcidRain: I think you should reboot before checking blkid14:47
thunsuckerThePendulum, the same principle applies. wireless will acti differently with the same problem vs wired. The thread is about acpi suspending the networking and freezing or not becoming available. therefore it should still apply14:47
carl-coz_: my mother called .. she had  some trouble .. and bought a new one .. she thought that it was the mouse .. and tried another port same thing .. although keyboard works fine14:47
uetlischwurcoz_: no, i have exams in digital technics tomorrow and compied my folder with important documents to bring it to a firends... so i have more urgent things to do and just tought i might ask here as long as it copies :P14:47

TheWardenusr13: I don't have control over the environment... these devices running Ubuntu do not have a keyboard or mouse and is remotely administrated. I need to set default responses for those type of prompts.17:05
txomonDexo, it would be as having 2 ubuntus at the same time17:05
PiciDexo: You can, I just don't see the use, since they are the same thing, just with different packages installed.17:05
TheWardenusr13: no its not a desktop pc... it is used in an application environment or says as a STB (set-top-box)..17:06
usr13TheWarden: I see.  Let look and see if I can find an answer. (I don't know.)17:06
IdleOneDexo: you can host your game server at the same time as running the desktop, all with the same single Ubuntu install.17:06
Dexopici: would be running ubuntu desktop without the X be the same as Server?17:06
TheWardenusr13: I've been searching online for an answer but no luck so far.17:06
blackhathai friends17:06
Picitxomon: Okay, lets do this: sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/available-old /var/lib/dpkg/available17:06
DexoIdleOne: but i dont want desktop lagging the server. it uses resources17:07
txomonPici, done17:07
Picitxomon: Then: sudo dpkg --clear-avail; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade17:07
PiciDexo: So you can turn off the service that provides the desktop environment.17:07
DexoPici: how would i do that? im newish to  ubuntu.17:08
IdleOneDexo: you can only boot one instance of Ubuntu at a time. Yes, you could install both server and Desktop on different partitions but you would only be able to boot to one of those and use it.17:08
PiciDexo: sudo service gdm stop    or  start17:08
DexoIdleOne: yes i know that17:08
