TeknoCoolcan't find the windows partition00:00
evantonlet's say I want to find out if a certain app is in the repos by issuing "apt-cache search", but I don't have instant access to an ubuntu box. Are there free online web frontends for quering repos like this?00:00
scorchgeekTeknoCool: sometimes that happens if the ntfs partition is marked as 'dirty' due to improper shutdown...try rebooting into Windows, shutting down properly, and returning to Ubuntu00:01
Jordan_Udequeued: ActionParsnip: EFI allows you to set the default OS from within the booted system, and this default is a specific EFI executable rather than just a drive. grub-install, when using grub-efi and efibootmgr is available, sets grub (using the supplying distribution's name) as the default.00:01
TeknoCooluhm00:01
TeknoCooli'm pretty sure i shut down corectly00:01
jawashinevanton probably packages.ubuntu.com00:01
scorchgeekTeknoCool: it just randomly happened to me when I was dual-booting00:01
TeknoCoolhowever i do get these bluescreens often when i start up windows00:01
scorchgeekit's worth a shot at least, isn't it?00:02
gogetaJordan_U: arch has eft but it always failed on me00:02
gogetaJordan_U: even in a vm00:02
Jordan_Udequeued: Note though that that is all it does as far as firmware is converned, only the default preference is saved. GRUB itself (and all the rest of Ubuntu) still reside only on the hard drive.00:02
TeknoCoolalso this reminds me of a unix based pasword recovery thing i had on a cd that also had problems with dirty drives00:02

mib_mibscorchgeek: yep, runs fine00:07
mib_mibscorchgeek: according to the error, seems like a permission issue, i just don't know on what files or folders - as cron usually runs as a different user right00:07
scorchgeekmib_mib: well it depends00:07
scorchgeekwhat user's crontab are you editing?00:08
scorchgeekare you using sudo crontab, or not?00:08

mib_mibshould i be using sudo crontab?00:08
scorchgeeknot unless you need root privileges00:08

kwixsonI'm going to that link and following the directions now. Thank you.01:16
tensorpuddingkwixson: a PPA is like the repositories that ubuntu has, but it's not official; it's maintained by some helpful guy who has compiled software for you, and once you add the ppa, you can just click-install as you normally would for installing software in the USC01:16
edbianaaas: sure :)  be warned, when you install ccsm it will erase all the settings (that unity made) and you'll have to start turning things on just to get back to normal01:17
aaasedbian: im trying to disable some things to run under vnc, so i dont mind having some things erased ;)01:17

zykotick9Bonz, ok that i can't assist you with.  It was a terminology problem however, that is NOT a dist-upgrade.02:11
Bonzi have done upgrades in the past when i was using debian potato, woody, sid, etc but do not want to trash the system by not doing it the ubuntu way02:11
zykotick9dddbmt, "grep -R <STRING> /path"02:11
zykotick9Bonz, FYI debian updates go much better then ubuntu ones.  Best of luck, I never recommend people upgrade Ubuntus - fresh install is usually easier.02:13
dddbmtzykotick9, I got it going with "grep <string> /path". thanks though!02:13
zykotick9dddbmt, you need -R or -r for recursive02:13
Bonzzykotick9: so they gui thing was informational value only with no dist-upgrade support available i am guessing02:14
dddbmtzykotick9, yup. But I only needed to search in one dir. no sub-dirs.02:14
zykotick9Bonz, dist-upgrade means "install new packages" not "update to new version of ubuntu"02:14
kiichirohey I have a very old flash drive that doesn't even get recognized until hours if that until ubuntu will recognize it, I believe it to be usb 1.0 is there any way to make it automount faster or for me to go into terminal and tell it to look for usb 1.0, I think I have to disable ehci or echi or something like that?02:14
Bonzi take your point with the fresh installs but this is a dual boot thing which was messed up by the other clueless person who installed it for me02:15

PolahGunz4MiPPle: On your panels? I guess you could display as many as you could fit, although if you have a lot then there may be some issues or longer load times with them02:27
Gunz4MiPPlePolah: i am thinking its built into dconf or gconf, a limit02:28
Gunz4MiPPlecause sometimes i have to manually start some indicators02:28

kiichirome02:28
Bonzkiichiro: #/dev/sdb1      /flash  vfat user,noauto,exec   0       002:29
=== X_ is now known as xedx
=== xedx is now known as xeex
Bonzbut as you see i no longer use it02:29
edbiankiichiro: If it's at /media/Kingston it's already mounted02:29
kiichiroas I've said, it does the automount very slow and has to redo it upon startup every time02:29
paijem-cantikhello, anyone here experienced with phpmyadmin setup on nginx02:30
paijem-cantik??02:30
merchus_se lee?02:30
bazhangpaijem-cantik, on debian?02:30
paijem-cantikdebian or ubuntu .. i think not to much differences02:31
kiichirois there a specific way I'm supposed to edit fstab?02:31
bazhangpaijem-cantik, you're using debian02:31
kiichiroI clicked and won't let me save it02:31
TheEvilPhoenixpaijem-cantik:  there's an nginx channel: #nginx02:31
usr13kiichiro: You have to use sudo02:31
zykotick9kiichiro, are you using sudo / gksudo to open the file?02:31
TheEvilPhoenixkiichiro:  gksudo gedit /etc/fstab02:31
usr13kiichiro: or gksudo02:32
Polahkiichiro: You need to do it using sudo. If you're using gedit then use gksudo gedit /etc/fstab02:32
kiichirothanks guys02:32
kiichirookay thanks lol, sorry really still new to linux ig02:32
TheEvilPhoenixpaijem-cantik:  you'll need to set up PHP correctly with nginx02:33
paijem-cantikbazhang: some time ...02:33
TheEvilPhoenixpaijem-cantik:  then it should work.02:33
TheEvilPhoenixpaijem-cantik:  support for that is in #nginx, btw.02:33
bazhangpaijem-cantik, you're crossposting in #debian , your using debian, dont ask for debian support here02:33
paijem-cantikTheEvilPhoenix: yeah, i have setup it correctly i think.. test phpinfo works normally02:33
paijem-cantikbazhang: i'm using ubuntu natty02:34
paijem-cantikbazhang: now using ubuntu natty02:34
volkov_emerald doesnt work02:34
usr13paijem-cantik: Then why are you crossposting to #debian?02:34
bazhangvolkov_, its not maintained nor supported02:34
TheEvilPhoenix!emerald | volkov_02:35
ubottuvolkov_: emerald is an obsolete window decorator for compiz. It's unsupported and unmaintained, making issues with it very hard to diagnose and fix. There are no known, supported alternatives.02:35
TheEvilPhoenixdamn it, stupid lag02:35

Jim455Ranyone knows how to disable ubuntu mutlicast ??02:39
kiichirothank you bazhang02:39
Beav3rAnyone have an idea why wifi isn't showing up in the network drop-down menu if I have PCI adapter installed?02:39
noneabove1182edbian thanks haha02:39
edbianBeav3r: What card do you have?02:39
Beav3rIt's a linksys WDM300N, drivers installed with ndiswrapper02:41
usr13Beav3r: lspci |grep -i wireless  #show us what it says02:41
JoknJim455R: why disable multicast?02:41
Jim455Ri don't use it02:41
Kaapahey there. Trying to create a PXEServer to install ubuntu but having some difficulties with dhcp server02:42
Beav3rNothing for wireless. It shows up as a network controller subsistem: Linksys Device02:42
JoknI don't know about desktop version, but you should be able to do it through ifconfig02:42
Kaapatrying to run dhcpserver in the host, but the host itself is getting a ip02:42
usr13Kaapa: Where is the DHCP server?02:42
KM0201Beav3r: that's all it says?.. does lspci identify it?02:42
usr13Kaapa: YOu need to trun OFF the dhcp server on your router.02:43
Kaapausr13: on the same box02:43
Kaapawell, I need the dhcp server in the router02:43
Kaapaelse I won't  be able to do a net install02:43
usr13Kaapa: The host should have a static IP.  (You can't have two dhcp servers running on the same LAN).02:43
KaapaI'm trying to run the dhcp server on eth0 only02:44
usr13Kaapa: So turn off the dhcp server on the router and let the dhcp server on the PC take over.02:44
Kaapathe router is wireless02:44
Beav3rKM0201: When I just do lspci it shows Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4321 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)02:44
Beav3rSo I must have screwed up somewhere.02:45
KM0201Beav3r: i believe that needs the STA driver02:45
Kaapausr13: can't this be done without removing dhcp form the rourter?02:45
Kaapathe router is wireless, and I'm trying to use nat with a phisical cable02:45
Beav3rOkay, now I'm carpet burning to this thing so how should I go about getting that?02:45
KM0201Beav3r: yup, the STA driver..  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx#Installing STA drivers02:45
Nubi1Kenobineed some help with finding a path to a network drive in terminal mode02:46
Beav3rOkay. So I should probably clear the blacklist it had me set up when I installed ndiswrapper, then?02:46
KM0201Beav3r: afffirmative02:46
usr13Kaapa: It will be much easier if you just turn off the dhcp server on the router and let the dhcp server on the PC take over.02:46
noneabove1182hey guys ive got a problem of my screen not refreshing properly (kinda choppy and only when i do an action) when im running ubuntu 11.04 in a virtualbox with 3D accelerated graphics and unity, any one able to help ?02:46
Beav3rAlright. I'll give that a try.02:47
Kaapausr13: the dhcp in the router is over the wireless connection. Over the wired connection is working ok02:47
Raisoranyone know where I can find linux raid drivers that work with ubuntu 64 and the EVGA X58 FTW3 motherboard?02:47
Kaapabut for some reason, when I do the wired connection, the computer that's acting as a bridge is losing access to the internet02:48
usr13Kaapa: Are they intergrated?  Or not?02:49
usr13Kaapa: What router do you have?02:49
Kaapausr13: I'm trying to install ubuntu in a laptop that doesn't have an optical drive and usb boot doesn't work02:50
Kaapausr13: so I'm trying to use another laptop to act as a pxeserver and use net install02:50
usr13Kaapa: What subnet do you have on the Wireless?  What subnet do you have on the wired network?02:50
Kaapawireless: 192.168.1.X; wired, I'm chosing 192.168.0.X02:51
ChilaquilesI created a DVD to be able to be played on my DVD player using DeVeDe but when I insterted it into my DVD player it says it's not able to play because it's not made for this region, Does anybody know how can I change this?02:51

rypervenchetraskers: Ask SIFTU in #filmsbykris, he has a nice one.03:04
zykotick9kwixson, COPY your current /home to the other drive, then specify a /home mount in fstab.  Once it's tested working you could remove the origional /home/* BE SURE TO UMOUNT THE NEW HOME FIRST!03:05

dreamy_why arent there any games at the games section on ubuntu 10.10 software center?03:07
Beav3rKM0201: I installed the packages as instructed from that page (dkms and bcmwl, fakeroot and patch weren't on the CD) but the STA does not show up in the additional drivers program. Do I need to locate those missing packets elsewhere or are they not needed for 11.04?03:08
KM0201Beav3r: hmm, did you try restarting?03:09
scorchgeekdreamy_: that's unusual, I've never had missing items03:09
Beav3rIt's booting now, I wasn't sure if it would help or not since the doc didn't mention it.03:09
scorchgeekdreamy_: try running sudo apt-get update03:09
dreamy_ok03:10
KM0201Beav3r: actually....   Note: A computer restart may be required before using the wifi card.03:10
Beav3rYeah, but I thought that was after activating the STA driver.03:10
KM0201ah, thats true.03:10

ubottuPlease 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. :-)03:13
scorchgeekJim455R: well, we don't know what your problem is03:13
Jim455Ri want somethign that shows the speed of the LAN03:13
Jim455Rin the panel03:13

scorchgeekyou don't see numbers usually...?03:14
bazhangJim455R, why not use conky instead03:14
Tech-1or gkrellm03:14
zykotick9Chilaquiles, from what I'm reading looks like you can choose NTSC or PAL in devede, which did you choose, and are you in the US?03:15
Jim455Rbazhang yeah very nice03:15
Jim455Rbazhang i want it in the panel03:15
Jim455Rat the top or bottom03:16
Jim455Ryou are closing to what i want03:16
Chilaquileszykotick9: I'm in Mexico, and I chose PAL03:16
Tech-1gkrellm = http://imagebin.org/16804603:16
scorchgeekJim455R: try the package "netspeed"03:16
Chilaquileszykotick9: it's that the problem?03:16
scorchgeekJim455R: then run sudo killall gnome-panel, and you can right-click on the panel and add it03:16
scorchgeeklooks exactly like what you're asking for03:16
zykotick9Chilaquiles, PAL is typically Europe, but I'm not 100% what Mexico uses, my guess would be NTSC though03:16

Jim455Rthank you very very much03:18
AnonSpyfriends a good vpn for backtrack 503:18
_aaron_zykotick9, it doesn't matter if he chooses ntsc or pal he need to change the region of the disc to region 003:18
Chilaquileszykotick9: I think it's NTSC, like this map says right? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PAL-NTSC-SECAM.svg03:18
rwwAnonSpy: Backtrack Linux is not supported here. Ask #backtrack-linux.03:18
bazhangAnonSpy, try the bt channel, its not supported here03:18
Chilaquileszykotick9: or what do you think?03:18
zykotick9Chilaquiles, perhaps _aaron_ has more info?  But i'd try with NTSC and see if that works.  Best of luck.03:19
kwixsonzykotick9: Check that. I thought I had copied everything, but didn't03:19
User809i know smartQ r7 has a ubuntu e-reader that's as close as i found to a tablet :(03:19
User809^v703:19
Chilaquiles_aaron_: how can I change that to region 0?03:19
bazhangUser809, thats really out of scope for this channel, try #ubuntu-offtopic03:20
kwixsonHow do you copy everything properly. I assume there's more to it than dragging and dropping.03:20
User809k03:20
scorchgeekkwixson: copy what properly?03:20
bazhang!home > kwixson03:20

d1g1ta1one of my users deleted his hard drive partition... is there a utility that let's me put it back without reloading all his software?03:21
=== Arcademan` is now known as iArcade
zykotick9kwixson, you need to be sure you copy with permission intact.  "sudo cp -ra /home/* /NEWLOCATION/" should work.03:21
scorchgeekfunny you ask, someone asked about unformatting a partition earlier today...I don't know of one off-hand03:21
Chilaquilessorry03:21
jef91I have a display manager compiled and installed, but it didn't add itself to the list of display managers by default like most do (EG, LXDM and GDM). How can I tell the system to find and use this new display manager at startup? Right now I have to manually run "sudo elsa start" from the tty03:22
scorchgeekd1g1ta1: I think there's a way to recover data from such an area, but it's probably not worth the effort unless there's no backup03:22
scorchgeekI also don't know anything about it:)03:22

lemonsI'm on 11.04 and today ubuntu has been randomly lagging after I'm gone for a few hours and come back. Programs seem to run fine, but my mouse is extremely laggy. No processes are using a lot of CPU or memory though so I don't understand whats wrong. Why is it doing this, and is there anyway to fix it without restarting my computer?03:22
Chilaquiles_aaron_: I have an avi file, and I'm using DeVeDe to convert that avi file into a ISO then I want to burn that to be able to play in my DVD player03:22
scorchgeeklemons: try logging out and logging back in again, or do you want to avoid that too?03:22
zykotick9kwixson, be sure to see that link that bazhang sent you!  It's pure gold for what you are doing.03:23
_aaron_Chilaquiles, one second please03:23
lemonsscorchgeek: i dont mind doing that, but it didn't fix it when this first happened earlier today03:23
scorchgeekyou might also check your mouse batteries if you have a wireless mouse, that can cause a lot of lag03:23
lemonsI'm using a wired logitech G50003:23

scorchgeeklemons: well, no more ideas then, sorry03:24
lemonsis it possible that the G15 daemon for my keyboard would be causing it? its the only thing new i've installed, and i think i installed it today03:24
Chilaquiles_aaron_: ok03:24

Vekusounds good..so do I have to do the same thing for Google Chrome then?03:33
bazhang!compile > merlot03:33
ubottumerlot, please see my private message03:33
bazhang!packaging > merlot03:33
scorchgeekVeku: I think it may be automatically installed in Google Chrome03:33
Flannelmerlot: #ubuntu-packaging probably has plenty of info03:33
scorchgeekat least that's what I'm told when I go to their site03:33
merlotgreat thanks guys!03:33
Vekuyeah..thats wht i thought..so I wanted to dl Chrome..03:33
Vekubut it wouldn't install afterward!03:33
bazhangVeku, they add repos, go to their site03:33
Vekusays somekind of error03:33
ubuntubut i download it again03:33
scorchgeekVeku: what error03:34
bazhangVeku, you need to update your package list: sudo apt-get update03:34
_aaron_Chilaquiles, try changing it to NTSC it might just change the region to 0 which is universal. the only other info i can give you is to check out doom9.net03:34
Vekusomething...<= some numbers...03:34
scorchgeekVeku: please paste the exact error, it's hard to tell what the problem is otherwise03:34
ubuntuand i get the same software  in different place03:34
Vekuoh..ok03:34
Chilaquilesit's that better? or I can change the region to 0 with doom9?03:35
ubuntuand i try to install it03:35
bazhangubuntu, you want to use qq?03:35
ubuntubut i give me a wrong03:35
ubuntuyes03:35
bazhangubuntu, empathy can handle qq03:35
VekuIm currently using mirc client on windows..what irc client is good for Linux..and how should I install them?03:35
Chilaquiles_aaron_:  it's that better? or I can change the region to 0 with doom9?03:35
scorchgeekVeku: I personally like irssi, but there are tons03:35
theadminVeku: Ubuntu comes with XChat03:35
theadminVeku: irssi is a great one, too03:35
bazhangVeku, from the package manager, as all else03:35
Vekuok03:36
bazhangtheadmin, you mean empathy as default03:36
Vekuso where do I find the package manager? settings menue?03:36
scorchgeeksystem --> applications --> synaptic package manager on gnome03:36
_aaron_Chilaquiles, doom9.net is a website with tools for video editing  but i would try NTSC03:36
theadminbazhang: I think Ubuntu used to come with XChat at some point03:37
Vekuso I have to run the command..and then use the update package?03:37
scorchgeekVeku: you can install flash just from the command lin03:37
Vekuoh03:37
Vekuso I dont need to use the package manager?03:38
scorchgeeksudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer03:38
scorchgeekthe package manager is good for browsing packages you don't know the name of03:38
Vekuoh03:38
scorchgeekif you do know the name you can install it through the manager, but it's usually faster not to03:38
Vekugot it..03:38
scorchgeekerm03:39
scorchgeekI wrote the command wrong03:39
Vekuso the irssi is already in the package manager?03:39
Vekuor I need to d/l that?03:39

Anom01yhi, for some reason I have a webserver running on my Ubuntu machine, but I don't know which program is running it..03:41
scorchgeekAnom01y: chances are it's apache, that's the usual webserver (though I'm not sure why you have that going on)03:42
rwwAnom01y: "sudo netstat -lnp --inet", look for local addresses ending in :8003:42
Anom01ywhen I go to this website      http://localhost:80  it pulls up a page saying "it works! This is the default web page for this server. The web server software is running but no content has been added yet."03:42

scorchgeekSingham: when you boot into recovery mode there's an option to restore the X server configuration or drivers or something. You might try that.03:57
scorchgeekarooni-mobile: well, this isn't a way to make it stop hanging, but pressing ctrl-alt-sysrq (printscreen key)-K kills the X server and deals with that a little bit faster :)03:58
installubuntuI'm trying to install lubuntu on Toshiba satellite a50 series and its always crash when it portitioned the hd please help03:58

arooni-mobileSIFTU, it can be; mine isnt.  its running the intel integrated graphics.  when i bought it; it seemed as though nvidia would  never support optimus on linux04:00
Singham<scorchgeek> : It opens just like terminal04:00
scorchgeekSingham: in your GRUB menu when you boot up, there's a recovery mode option04:00
scorchgeeksorry I wasn't very clear on that04:00
SIFTUarooni-mobile: yeah I had hard hangs on my Dell XPS until I moved to kernel 3.0.. about once a day04:00

arooni-mobileSIFTU, so is that kernel coming in the next ubuntu release?04:01

SIFTUarooni-mobile: not sure.. I dont run ubuntu sorry04:01

ccmonsterbut when i go into the drive in nautilus and look at the folder properties, it says its under root04:19
ccmonsterwhich is odd. because I thought I made the owner as me, so...yea04:19
SIFTUccmonster: you tried the dynamic configuration rules like in http://pysdm.sourceforge.net/screenshots/udev_04.png04:19
gugugagawho know anything about tvtime ?04:19
ActionParsnipccmonster: check, then you can make a group with root and the user in and make it the group owner of the folder. Make a note of the current owners04:20
ccmonsteris that the suggested method ActionParsnip ?04:20
ccmonsterSIFTU, i was messing with that.04:20

SIFTUccmonster: ok well you can change that easy enough.. what file system is it?04:23
ccmonsterdo i need to unmount then remount?04:23
SIFTUccmonster: no it's probably just the file permissions04:23
=== `mOOse` is now known as m00se

ccmonsterlittle confusing, you could say04:24

bazhangveku, its not supported, and will break unity. avoid it04:37
bazhang!gnome3 | veku04:37
ubottuveku: Gnome 3 is not currently supported on Ubuntu. A PPA for natty is available at https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3 but these packages are EXPERIMENTAL and UNSTABLE, will break Unity and possibly other parts of your system, and cannot be downgraded safely.04:37
HeGuruarooni-mobile: in 11.10 11 is 2011 and 10 is Month 10 (October) so 11.10 will be release in October 201104:37

vekuwouldn't that be slower..04:40
ActionParsnipveku: depends on config I guess04:41
cfeddemost of the time "easier" means "more like something I already know"04:41

theadminActionParsnip: Well, I think it's rather intuitive that a package manager is to be run as root.04:48
jukebox-zeroSo, I guess this might be a little odd. I'm compiling mplayer from source for the second time, doing it this time because I didn't like how the installation done by make install doesn't show up on either aptitude or apt-get, synaptic, etc. This time I'll be using checkinstall. My question is, I could pass something like --pkgversion="1:$(date +%Y%m%d%H%M)-git" to check install, but do I have to? And since aptitude and apt-04:48
jukebox-zeroget, etc will recognize the package, do I have to worry about it being a candidate for upgrades, or in this case downgrades? Also will aptitude recognize it as satisfying dependancies?04:48

maestrojedActionParsnip, how can I fix it? In gparted? Reformat?05:31
ActionParsnipwrekt: your question seems muddled. If you want to get natty then you MUST upgrade to Maverick (10.10) first. The Natty and Lucid desktop support is EOL on the same day so is the same in that respect05:31
th0rspo0kz: I think it is 'sudo swapoff', but not sure05:31

Would anybody have any ideas why it would suddenly be like that.......I am running Ubuntu 10.10...when I restart it, ti keeps asking me if I05:52

rabbi1how to open .dwg file in 10.04  ?07:30
icerootzen_monkey: a file is stored in sectors and a sector has a specific size07:30
icerootzen_monkey: also there is a difference between MB and MiB07:31
gadgetdevilzen_monkey: file size represents the actual size of the file. Hard drives use something called a "block size" to address space on the drive. This block size is an indivisible unit, so even if you have a file that is less than the block size, you take up the entire block.07:31
icerootzen_monkey: sorry, block instead of sector as gadgetdevil said07:31
=== ab_ is now known as Guest242
zen_monkeyiceroot, i understand the sector idea, but such a difference between both means disk fragmentation?07:32

ubottuCpt_Zyph: 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.07:58

m_ritemarkskil1eck: it's really cool. we used it on windows before and had a lot of fun with it :D08:11
Kaolensuman: If I am not mistaken, it doesn't look like the kernel even registers that you plugged anything in.08:11
JoeR1m_rite, well I could only offer advice that would have both working in the same field so I think this is not what you want08:11
m_riteJoeR1: what do you mean, field?08:12
m_ritethe goal is to not have to go "wait a minute, let me just hand you over the keyboard" every time he wants to take control and type something08:12
JoeR1m_rite, it would be recieving input from both keyboards as if they were one08:13
m_riteJoeR1: yes, that's the plan08:13
JoeR1m_rite, have you tried pluggin them both in at the same time?08:13
m_ritethey are08:13
Kaolensuman: Looks like all you have that is possibly relevant is "usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2". And at that point, I wouldn't know what to do.08:13
JoeR1m_rite, ok, one moment, This may take me a moment as i am currently compiling a new kernel08:14

m_riteJoeR1: ok, awesome, thanks08:17
goofriderI just need some pointers as to how to narrow down the problem08:18
JoeR1m_rite, are both USB or is one PS/2?08:18
rwwRenatoSilva: Unity in 11.04 is a plugin for Compiz that provides a shell as an alternative to GNOME Panel, GNOME Shell, etc.08:18
rwwRenatoSilva: 11.04 runs it on top of GNOME 2. Oneiric runs it on top of GNOME 3.08:19
m_riteJoeR1: both identical USB08:19
JoeR1m_rite, are both plugged in right now?08:19

BlueWolftheadmin: I double clicked on the firefox, it update but did not install?08:52
theadminBlueWolf: Sorry, I think you misunderstand the fact that this package is *not* an Ubuntu package, and thus will *not* integrate with Ubuntu menus and other things without special street magic08:53
kaellanurlin2u: im deleting he backtrack partition and a old ubuntu partiion so now i need t know what one of the swap partitions im using for this instal of ubuntu08:53
urlin2utriunity, you would have to wipe libre and download from open office, libre is ahead of open office now thgough.08:53
darksethi... I have problem. I can't install any ubuntu (dvd or live cd) , becouse when i start installer, and chose language, keyboard... get info theh cdrom coould not be find and mounted. I check logs and i think its problem of i82365 module becouse it dont load08:53
urlin2ukaellan, the swap isn't important for installs, delete all and make a new one with the new partitioning for the install.08:54
cousin_mariourlin2u: thanks, but I'd rather not use an unofficial package for such a critical task08:54
triunityYea, but libre base has serious issues... and those issues didn't exist in openoffice.  So im ok with oo being slightly less advanced...08:55

Earlier today I ran the Windows installer on my Drive E:, I decided to use the Live CD disk to overwrite the entire Drive E: and install Ubuntu that way instead. When I boot my comptuer now and have the option to boot Windows 7 or Ubuntu, when I select Ubuntu I now get an error08:59
urlin2ukaellan, cool your swap is fine then I suggest the one to remove as it will give you more unallocated .09:00
NicheOWATI think it's still trying to boot the Windows installed partition even though I created a new one, how do I go about fixing this? I'm such a noob09:00
urlin2uNicheOWAT, run sudo update-grub in ubuntu09:00
szalNicheOWAT: first, define 'an error'09:00
NicheOWATurlin2u, how do I get to ubuntu? Says Windows can't find that partition whenever I try to boot Ubuntu09:00
NicheOWATI'm in Windows 7 now fyi09:01
urlin2uNicheOWAT, did you install inside of windows?09:01
triunityNicheOWAT, if both are fresh, just install do a reinstall with windows, than install ubuntu on top.  That is the best way09:01
NicheOWATEarlier today yes, but I just used the LiveCD to overwrite that09:01
ziga_the best how to about dualboot i have ever found is here: http://www.lancelhoff.com/restore-grub2-after-installing-windows/09:01
urlin2uNicheOWAT, yes to me09:01
urlin2uNicheOWAT, yes to a wubi install?09:02
BlueWolftheadmin: Ok then, please could you give me the Url for the firefox site.09:02
NicheOWATwhat? Wubi install?09:02
NicheOWATdon't know what this means09:02
theadminBlueWolf: Open a terminal, run this: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox09:02
urlin2uNicheOWAT, first tab the user name so we know who you af=re answering. Did you install ubuntu from windows?09:02
urlin2uare*09:03
NicheOWATurlin2u, the first time I installed Ubuntu ealrier today, yes I did install it with Windows. However I just used the Live CD to install Ubuntu, erasing the Ubuntu that was installed with Windows earlier09:04
NicheOWATI overwrote it because it limited me to 30GB when I ran it through Windows09:04
zambahow can i make a bootable usb from an iso?09:04
urlin2uNicheOWAT, can you screen shot gparted or run a script to pastebin, you will have to onstall gparted.09:04
urlin2uinstall09:05
theadminzamba: There are many ways, unetbootin, usb-creator, lili09:05
NicheOWATurlin2u, I don't know what any of that means09:05
urlin2uNicheOWAT, gparted is a partitioner on the live cd.09:06
zambatheadmin: what works?09:07
milamber!usb | zamba09:07
ubottuzamba: For information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent09:07
urlin2uNicheOWAT, if you can't boot ubuntu we will have to use the install disc to fix it so a screen shot of gparted will get us closer, boot the live cd.09:07
theadminzamba: All of those I listed would work with Ubuntu.09:07
zambathis is not about installing ubuntu, it's about writing bootable iso images to usb09:07
NicheOWATOk, I'm going to reboot with the Live CD.... I'LL BE BAWK09:07

triunityNo, that is not normal09:32
theadminNiche: It's not normal. Make sure it was burned well, there is an option to check disk integrity in the boot menu09:32
triunityIt shouldn't take more than a minute to load09:32
theadmintriunity: It often does take more than a minute. Not more than 3 mins though.09:32

triunityLoL, ok------  if loadtime => 360: print "error"09:34
dr_willis!nomodeset09:34
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter09:34

triunitySignal Interferance09:39
whoppergatorJoeR1: Oh, well I'm coming from a gentoo background in that respect, so my kernel are pretty lean. If you're compiling ALL modules or something then that could take that long09:39

rumianom@triunity thanks09:41
whoppergatorJoeR1: what are you running the compile on? you could also parallel-ize some of it?09:41

doriteysquig milamber and triunity: With the risk of sounding belligerent and while I do appreciate Linux's technical prowess, I don't really consider it very interesting from a desktop functionality standpoin. Like, I'm talking about emulating Ubuntu for the purpose of getting access to things I don't have on Windows or OSX.10:05
doriteyAnd in that case, it won't do much if Ubuntu's only selling point is that it's faster/more secure or whatever.10:05

JoeR1doritey the "selling point" that get ubuntu/linux downloaded more often than not is that it is free10:06
AcidpunkThat and 95% of software on the platform is free as well10:07
SlartZutara: you'll have to check the man page.. man devilspie   should be a good start10:07
triunitythere are a lot of programs on linux that can't be found on mac/windows, but if you don't need/want those programs there is little point.  Like nmap, john the ripper, aircrackng, and the like...  Not to mention  if you are a web dev, you may want linux as a vb for the point of checking compatablity with your sites10:07

Nicheurlin2u, my pc restarted and now I am unable to boot windows or linux. It just says Grub and tells me to press Tab10:11
JoeR1triunity, well different stroke for different folks, I can say that i am pretty sure Ubuntu is ill suited for power users like myself, I lack the high end programmer prowess and I am not on the day care level either and U-linux seems to be too much trouble for not enough benefit but I am still trying10:12
ZutaraI've got no idea of where to start with the geometry command10:12
SlartAdvoWork: I'm not really sure what can go wrong with the mysql stuff.. haven't used it that much myself.. and never to a remote computer10:12
SlartZutara: hang on.. let me install devilspie and see if I can make sense of it10:12
Zutarak10:12
milamberAdvoWork: you have to bind your ip in the my.cnf10:12
milamberAdvoWork: to enable remote connections on the default mysql server10:13
urlin2uNiche, first you are going to have to open the bios and put the sdb hd before the others for this to work. To be honest for me it is 3:13 am I need to crash, so others may be able to help.10:13
AdvoWorkmilamber, is this still the case though, because i can go anymachine > remote machine  = ok, but ubuntuserver > remote machine = fail.. isnt the bind bit supposedly done on the remote side? which i have proven already works?10:14
NicheKk thanks for your helps10:14
triunityWell Joe I guess each has there own.  I've installed linux on about 80 - 90 computers, and about 30 or so server installs.  Most of my clients get a hold of it rather quickly...10:14
urlin2uNiche, this is any easy fix If I was there about 5 min work, but on the web with a new user this could take awhile, I need to sleep.10:14
beginnerhi everyone, i have something to ask: is it possible to have Compiz and Unity together10:14
milamberAdvoWork: not sure what anymachine > remote machine means? and no the bind bit is on the server10:14
dr_willisbeginner:  thats the default. so yes10:15
dr_willisunity runs on top of compiz normally10:16
Zutaraew. Unity.10:16
triunityQuestion.  I have a python script on my desktop, is there any way of running it, merely by double clicking?10:16
dr_williseww you said eww.10:16
Zutaratriunity: yes10:16
SlartZutara: hmm.. it seems devilspie is more of a "configure stuff the way you want them to be" instead of "change things around with the command line"10:16
Zutaradamnit10:16
triunityZutara:  Agreed, unity is horrable.  I tell my clients that it is broke, and switch them back to gnome10:16
Zutarawell this sucks10:17
whoppergatorbeginner: if you want to configure compiz, there is always the compizconfig-settings-manager package10:17
triunityZutara, might elaborating on how?10:17
ricky26triunity: chmod +x filename :p10:17
Zutararight click, choose properties, click permmissions and check the run this file as...10:17
Zutaraor that10:17
triunityWay beyond that...10:17

AdvoWorkmilamber, i mean my general machine here i can connect to mysql on the remote machine so i know the remote machine is accepting connections, but on my ubuntu server, i try the same connection and it times out(so surely that means something on the ubuntu machine is blocking it?)10:19

* Niche prints "Hello World"10:20
ricky26triunity: :P10:20
ricky26triunity: No problem.10:21
dr_willispython is very structured.  so are scripts. ;)10:21
milamberAdvoWork: i don't think you are presenting your problem clearly. you are describing the remote machine as the mysql server. you are saying that you are trying to connect to that server from your server and it is timing out?10:21
milamberAdvoWork: and based on the info provided i would say it sounds like a router issue10:21
triunityDr_Willis, Yea, python is structured, but typically i run python by typing in terminal:  python script.py10:21
triunityWhich doesnt require the : #!/usr/bin/env python10:22
dr_willistriunity:  use thae #! and you dont need to10:22
wildbatanyone know how too loop boot alternate ubuntu ISO ? i tried boot option "iso-scan/filename=the.iso"  but it seem not working .10:22
NicheSigh, how did I screw up a ubuntu install guys? That is like crashing a bike with training wheels10:23
triunityDr, when i run it without that, it just opens python, doesn't actually run the script10:23
dr_williswildbat:  boot iso with grub2 you mean?10:23
whoppergatorwildbat: what are you trying to do?10:23
wildbatdr_willis: yes10:24
wildbatwhoppergator: boot the alternate iso wit grub210:24
whoppergatorNiche: details? sorry i missed your earlier attempt with urlin2u10:24
SlartZutara: that utility worked for me.. note though that if you're using desktop effects (compiz) you have one huuuge desktop.. so if I want to put my irssi window on the desktop to the right I have to move it to coords 2000,10  (my screen is ~1900 pixels wide)10:24
SlartZutara: here are some more commands http://tomas.styblo.name/wmctrl/10:24
sgo11Hi, I am running ubuntu 11.04 natty. did all the upgrades. Intel graphic card. Currently, my screen resolution is not correct. it's restricted to 1024x768. It might because of long VGA cables? (I used two VGA cables and connected them together to make a long one). how to solve it?10:24
dr_williswildbat:  i got some bookmarks on it at delicious.com/dr_willis10:25
sgo11I even tried xrandr --addmode VGA1 1920x1080, but it gave me error: xrandr: cannot find mode "1920x1080"10:25
triunitySecond part of the question, when it runs, it asks: "Do you want to run or display its contents?"  Can i just force this particular script to run always not display?10:25
ricky26sgo11: Which intel card?10:25
NicheWhoppergator, ubuntu not booting. I tried to fix grub and now neither boot10:25
whoppergatorwildbat: is there something wrong with using a flash stick or burning to disc?10:25
sgo11I am very sure my monitor and PC support 1920x1080. I used it before with short cable.10:25
sgo11ricky26, sorry, can't remember. but it's very new one.10:26
sgo11ricky26, I used 1920x1080 before with a short VGA cable. right now, due to the distance between the PC box and monitor, I has to use long cable. so I used two VGA cables. not sure if this is the cause.10:26
whoppergatorNiche: is this an initial dual-boot install of ubuntu? also, are we talking two hdds here or one with multiple partitions?10:27
ricky26sgo11: Did you use the same OS before?10:27
NicheMultiple hdds10:27
ZutaraWell, it moved the minitube window. now it's in my second workspace, on my first monitor and the top half of the window is above the edge of my 1920x1024 monitor.10:27
sgo11ricky26, yeah. ubuntu 11.04.10:28
ricky26sgo11: You've installed the appropriate xorg-xserver-video-X packages right?10:28
whoppergatorNiche: ah, okay. so when you boot, you are seeing grub load, but it can't find the configuration partition?10:28
NicheDownloading x chat now so I can relay more info10:28
sgo11ricky26, actually, I have two PCs and two monitors. they are the same setup and model. another one with short cable (provided by PC) works now in ubuntu 11.04.10:28
NicheOn smart phone now10:29
sgo11ricky26, what is that? just default installation. then upgrade. install vlc, ubuntu-restricted-extras etc...10:29
ricky26sgo11: Graphics drivers, if you didn't do anything special with the first PC you shouldn't need to.10:29
ricky26sgo11: You could always try looking at the two X11 logs to make sure they're both using the same driver.10:30
=== ubuntu is now known as Niche-LiveCD
Niche-LiveCDOk10:30
ricky26sgo11: because that'll be what is restricting the resolution if it's a software problem. ;P10:30
rabbi1guys, unable to start font viewer....10:30
sgo11ricky26, I didn't do anything special with the first PC. just the VGA cables are different. One with PC provided VGA short cable. Another one with two long VGA cables bought from some shop.10:30

Zutarapkill xorg maybe? (or something along those lines10:32
triunityNiche, you are forgetting a step!!!10:32
dr_willisbeginner:  thats been disabed for ages10:33
whoppergatorbeginner: switch to a terminal with ctrl-alt-F1, then log-in and KILL10:33
sgo11ricky26, ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 10.0, is this the line I should look at?10:33
whoppergatorbeginner: if you want that feature back, you can enable it in the keyboard config10:33
* Zutara has been using Ctrl+Alt+Bckspc for a few years.10:33
dr_willisbeginner:  sudo service gdm stop or restart is one way also10:33
Niche-LiveCDwhoppergator, also I was following some instructions online, and accidentally mounted my Windows partition (sda2) when I meant to mount my Linux partition (sdb2). I typed "mount /dev/sda2 /mnt" Did this do something that I need to reverse now?10:33

Zutarahm.10:35
sgo11ricky26, ok. so which line should I look at? I have no idea...10:35
ricky26sgo11: If one of the logs mentions for example i915 or similar, and the other doesn't, it could be something weird.10:35

_vaibhav_I want to print text, from command prompt like.  $echo "hi" > /dev/usb/lp0 , I tried it nut didn't work.. Is there any way I can print from HP laser printer? am using buntu 10.04 and HP aserjet 102010:47
whoppergatorwildbat: the only thing i can think of right now is creating a custon initrd where you could either do the loop mount yourself, or better yet, take the normal ubuntu initrd and replace the alternate to get that function back10:48
triunitystix honestly my knowledge of virutalization is low.  You could run a self deleting script at startup that requests all that information10:48
thrillERboyHi, How do I display contents of a file in terminal?10:48
jpdsthrillERboy: cat $filename10:48
triunityThe idea being once the script is completed it deletes itself and removes itself from startup10:48
whoppergatorthrillERboy: or 'less' if it's long10:48
thrillERboyThanks jpds and whoppergator Works great :)10:49
stixtriunity: it really has nothing to do with virtualization. I just want it to invoke a network and password tool on boot10:49
beginnerthrillERboy type cat <filename>10:49
hazamonzoHey folks. This may or may not be the place to ask but.... im trying to launch a ubuntu AMI on my ec2 server... there are loads to choose from but i would like to use a virgin copy on ubuntu 11.04 x64. Im following this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EC2StartersGuide although im still not sure how i can filter the list of community AMI's to the official virgin copy of ubuntu to launch. Any thoughts?10:49
thrillERboythanks beginner :)10:49
triunityWhat network info do you need to be asked?10:50
triunitylike time zone info10:50
milamber_vaibhav_: just pipe it. <whatever command> | lp10:52
TophenYes. I'm back. With one final question.10:52
triunitystix: http://paste.ubuntu.com/667193/10:52
TophenDoes anyone know if I can read ext4 on windows at all? I'm using QEMUManager and I need to set the physical disk but it's not appearing.10:53
triunitystix: EDIT http://paste.ubuntu.com/667194/10:53

stixthanks :)10:53
Nichetriunity, no go after running those commands10:53
triunityReally... Niche, I believe karma is not with you...10:54
auronandaceTophen: it is better to use a storage partition of ntfs to access from both windows and linux10:54
triunityNiche, you did: http://paste.ubuntu.com/667191/10:54
TophenOk but to install linux on?10:54
NicheTriunity, I am at a grub screen, it's allowing me to type10:54

TophenAs i was going to boot off it. Seeing as how I can't, I'm running it through a vm on windows.10:55
NicheYes, grub>10:55
hazamonzowhoppergator: Aww thanks pal :)10:55
TophenAnd when I'm choosing to boot it on that I can't see it.10:55
triunityNiche, dude, you are at the wrong screen...10:55
milamberTophen: i think ext2read is what you are looking for10:55
TophenOk, ill check that out. Thanks.10:55
triunityYou need to be on a live cd to do this10:55
milamberbut auronandace is correct. if you have files you will need access to on both machines it is best to set up a fat/ntfs partition10:56
NicheI didn't type that stuff in grub> I did it in terminal on the live cd. After rebooting, I get stuck at grub>10:56
triunityOhh ok...10:56
triunityGo to live cd and do this:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/667201/10:57
triunityThis purges your current grub config10:57
triunityBut only do this, don't do the other commands10:57
sgo11ricky26, well. I have setup 1920x1080 with xrandx successfully now. by --newmode and then --addmode. but the screen display looks fuzzy....10:57
triunityin theory, it will log you straight into ubuntu, and you will lose windowz for a lil while, but after the fact, once your in ubuntu, running the last part will give you windows back10:58
ricky26sgo11: You probably need to tweak the timings, look at the mode in xrandr on the PC where it works. :p10:58
triunityI had to do this once, when i changed my swap file allocations http://paste.ubuntu.com/667201/10:59

rabbi1whoppergator: yeah, i got that font, but that's not we need right....11:13
ricky26sgo11: I dunno, even the xrandr man pages are pretty lax. You can try --delmode too. It's not too crucial if it doesn't get deleted as it might get cleaned up when you close X11 anyway.11:13

whoppergatorrabbi1: so what are you after again?11:14
triunityYou need to use a basic proxy to mask your ip...11:14

AdvoWorkmilamber, but i can connect remotely to it, via a local pc, just not from serverA.. serverA is an ubuntu dedicated server, so surely something has to be stopping the connection from going out?11:16

Jim455Rthen11:33
whoppergator_aaron_: so what's the problem then? i guess i don't understand11:34
milamberAdvoWork: probably not, you would have to convince the network admin that your server should have outbound privileges. and the probability of that going over well is inversely proportional to beard length11:34

hashplingto repair a filesystem should we "sudo fsck -p -v -u /dev/sdb1" ?12:28
clu3qin, i added a new image from /home/clu3/Desktop/bg.jpg and I activated it. Now the gconf value of /desktop/background/picture_filename is still /home/clu3/Desktop/bg.jpg . What's weird is i already moved that file bg.jpg to another location, yet the desktop still shows, so it must have been incorporated to Gnome somehow, i wanna modify that value12:28

qinclu3: Do new gconf setting stays after reboot?12:30
_eddie_dirk_, high and critical are 100*C12:30
clu3qin, yep12:30
hashplinghow do i repair a corrupted file system?12:30
clu3i already rebooted, and it's still the old path.12:30
_eddie_dirk_, and my regular cpu temp is ~70*C12:31
whoppergator_aaron_: chk the bot pm and you should be good to go, have fun12:31
qinclu3: What about bg?12:31
_aaron_whoppergator, oh i almost forgot how do i add it so any server that I want is started when the machine starts12:31
dirk__eddie_: Which version do you use?12:31
clu3qin, the bg works as expected, i.e the image is now the bg12:31
_eddie_dirk_, 11.0412:31
RichiHdo i need to add a multimedia repository to ubuntu same as for debian or are the packages in multiverse current and with all codecs, etc?12:31
clu3qin, so basically gnome must keep /clone that bg image to somewhere else12:32
hashplinghow do i repair a corrupted file system?12:32
dirk__eddie_: Strange. Because I read it was a bug on 8.04.12:32
qinclu3: Did you try to move pic, to test it?12:32
bazhangRichiH, ubuntu-restricted-extras covers most everything, you could perhaps take a look at medibuntu.org for anything else12:32
clu3qin, i already did, and reboot. The pic was on my Desktop, now my desktop is totally clean12:33
dirk__eddie_: Does it reboot, or slowing your system down?12:33
clu3what i actually wanna do is how to activate an image to be active bg image , from command line12:33
_eddie_dirk_, sometimes when it is overloaded it turns off12:34
clifftonok i formatted fat32 my only issue is im going to use unetbooting to put  win 7 instalation files on it, and i thought htose had to be ntfs format?12:34
_eddie_dirk_, I figured that is CPU way of defence12:34
_eddie_from overheating12:34
whoppergator_aaron_: if you mean how do you control what services start automagically on boot, then i usually install sysv-rc-conf12:35
theadmincliffton: Unetbootin does not support windows 7, you.12:35
qinclu3: Interesting, find ~ -name yourpicnamehere ?12:35
dirk__eddie_: Yes, that's good. I just hoped it didn't and the cpu monitor was just crazy :P.12:35
clu3qin, i tried that too, from / , and could only find my moved bg.jpg image12:35
clifftoni know it doesnt support but i read tuturial online and it said just select iso and pick your win7 iso which i got12:36
clu3qin, i just tried to modify the gconf value, directly and it activates right away12:36
_eddie_dirk_, I have hp 6730s laptop12:36
whoppergator_aaron_: the usage is sysv-rc-conf [ --level *levels* ] *service* <*on|off*>12:36
clu3do you know how to modify that gconf value from command line?12:36
bazhangwhoppergator, you mean upstart12:36
bazhang!upstart | whoppergator12:37
dirk__eddie_: And it's not just a  hardware problem? Fan that is full of dust, etc?12:37
ubottuwhoppergator: Upstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/12:37

bazhang[THC]AcidRain, pardon?12:39
bazhangvuln, you need to expand it?12:40
[THC]AcidRainbazhang, sry. _eddie_ if you want to know that. take it to #ubuntu-offtopic, #defocus12:40
vuln[THC]AcidRain: it didn't tell me. df -h did12:41
dirk__eddie_: Did you check your processes?12:41
vulnbazhang: I'm doing tests on this machine. But it may receive a big load of files and I don't want it to get overloaded.12:41
_eddie_dirk_, that's all I do :D I type sensors and then I type top -d .5 to check what is going on12:41
whoppergatorbazhang: i still have trouble wrapping my head around upstart, how then would i tell it to start dhcpd on startup?12:41
_eddie_dirk_, now the processes are ok, around 90% idle12:42

vulnThank you bazhang. It may sound silly, but let's say my partition has Xgb and Ubuntu happens to have X/4gb for it (apparently according to df -h). Would it automatically expand in case more space is occupied?12:43
dirk__eddie_: Last I would suggest is just trying a reboot? :P12:43
_eddie_dirk_, I did that as well12:44
theadminvuln: No, it won't12:44
bazhangvuln, no, you would need to expand it12:44
theadminbazhang: Expanding a wubi setup isn't so simple12:44

osmosis_paulhi, somebody know what is the name of the application to open for example remote files of other sever with my text editor in my local machine12:53
htmlkyle_,   [THC]AcidRain  , agreed ,  unless you are  doin the back up for you files   then you go about  a slightly diffternct12:53

osmosis_pauli want execute remotely an application and see the results in the local application of my machine, because that server dont have graphical interface only terminal12:53

Nomad1Hello, since upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 had some issues with my 3g modem, i.e. have to plug in and unplug at least four times before it connects, anyone had that issue. Fails to initialize the modem correctly the first couple of goes.13:24
htmllewis93,  drivers from that era is hard to come by,  and was much made , up til 10.04 ish to 10.10,13:24
ksbalajiWhile booting after the 1st stage, I sometimes the process hangs with blank screen and cursor at top left. How to move further without rebooting? mine is 10.04 LTS13:24
icerootNomad1: does the modem also have a normal usb storage? so usbmodeswitch would be an option13:25
Nomad1Yes has some USB storage on it that acts as a CD ROM.13:25
Nomad1Usually works after the third or fourth unplug though.13:26
Nomad1Also enabling and disabling 3g a couple of times will make it work as well.13:26
lewis93html, what do you suggest?13:26
bazhanglewis93, whats the chipset13:27
Nomad1It is a Nokia CS-12.13:27

jrib[THC]AcidRain: what does "groups ftpuser" return in a shell?13:52
yorickauronandace: I think it might be permission-related13:52
jerriy1 bazhang: yes i have those but I'm not able to play something called windows media files13:52
bazhangjerriy1, wma?13:52
[THC]AcidRainftpuser : users ftpuser13:52
jrib[THC]AcidRain: acidrain and ftpuser should be able to write to the directory then13:53
yorickit segfaults in 0x01538328 in ?? () from /usr/lib/nvidia-current/libGLcore.so.113:53
auronandaceyorick: what is the output if you run them from the terminal?13:53
bazhangjerriy1, sounds like a drm issue rather than a amarok issue frankly13:53
jrib[THC]AcidRain: can you write to the directory in a local shell (not through ftp)13:53
yorickauronandace: segmentation fault.13:54
jrib[THC]AcidRain: as ftpuser13:54
Scuniziwhere do older kernels live in the file system?13:54
=== `mOOse` is now known as kjkh
[THC]AcidRainjrib, so how do i set this up to do it through ftp? cause every guide ive read to this point has told me its all about permissions13:54

ubottupaulo: Por favor, use #ubuntu-br para ajuda em português. Para entrar no canal por favor faça "/join #ubuntu-br" sem as aspas. Para a comunidade local portuguêsa, use #ubuntu-pt. Obrigado.13:55
auronandaceyorick: hmm, odd.. not sure what to suggest sorry13:55
jerriy1bazhang: by that I mean a streaming file (that ends in .qtl)13:55
pauloobrigado13:56
jribpaulo: nada13:56
[THC]AcidRainjrib, ok my question is then, how do i make it so a user across ftp, can write to a directory. assuming all of my file permissions are correct13:56
=== kjkh is now known as m00se
ubuntu?13:57
jrib[THC]AcidRain: did writing to the directory as ftpuser using a shell, work?13:57
[THC]AcidRainjrib, to test this, ill just change my permissions to ftpuser, and do a mv?13:57
jrib[THC]AcidRain: don't change any permissions13:58
htmlyorick,  what are you using as a 3d effects ?13:58
jerriy1bazhang:?13:58
[THC]AcidRain... then how do i test it for user "ftpuser"?13:58
ScuniziCan I delete everything in /var/cache ??13:58
[THC]AcidRaini cant just do su - ftpuser?13:58
bazhangjerriy1, those are quicktime streaming files, seems totem can play them if ubuntuforums post is still applicable. did not see anything about amarok supporting them as of yet though13:58
yorickhtml: nothing?13:59
jrib[THC]AcidRain: sure13:59
jrib[THC]AcidRain: why not?13:59
yorickhttp://pastebin.com/MiRCV4Eg my glxinfo output13:59
jrib[THC]AcidRain: to start another thread of thought... how did you install proftpd?14:00
[THC]AcidRainjrib, through a shell, i went to the "Uploads" folder, and did "touch text.txt" it worked14:00
jrib[THC]AcidRain: as ftpuser, correct?14:00
[THC]AcidRainjrib, through software center14:00
[THC]AcidRainjrib, correct14:00
htmlyorick,  what are you using as a 3d effects , as in compiz?14:00
ScuniziCan I delete everything in /var/cache without causing any issues?14:00
jrib[THC]AcidRain: how is proftpd running as the acidrain user?14:00
PiciScunizi: Why would you do that?14:00
dddbmtHi guys. I used nautilus to stfp onto a server. By the connection broke and now I can't reconnect, is there a way to restart nautilus - or should I restart some ssh-thingie?14:00
[THC]AcidRainas a stand alone? is this your question...14:00
jrib[THC]AcidRain: can you do: ps -ef | grep proft14:01
jerriy1bazhang: qtl and also ASX14:01
ScuniziPici: I need to free room in root so I can log into my system.. I got a message that root was full and on the next boot it won't let me past the login screen14:01
jrib[THC]AcidRain: well like I said, I have never used proftpd before but it seems to me like it would have to run as root to be able to read things like /etc/passwd so you could login14:01
PiciScunizi: Removing the contents of /var/cache/apt/archives/ should be okay.14:02
[THC]AcidRainjrib, http://pastebin.com/Gc7D4gSC14:02
[THC]AcidRaini was told running any remote app as root was bad14:02
bazhangjerriy1, no idea with amarok, totem and mplayer can however14:02
ScuniziPici: ok.. I'd also like to check for older kernels that can be removed.. where do they live?14:02
jrib[THC]AcidRain: it probably starts as root and then switches to nobody.  It's running as "nobody" according to your output14:03
yorickNothing on the guest session14:03
[THC]AcidRainhmmmm. jrib, how do i switch its user?14:03
jrib[THC]AcidRain: anyway this is likely some sort of proftpd configuration issue, not a permissions issue14:03
jrib[THC]AcidRain: it's fine as it is14:03
yorickCompiz on the main account14:03
PiciScunizi: /boot/, but you really should remove the packages that installed those, and also re-run update-grub afterwards.14:03
[THC]AcidRainjrib, what ftp server do you use?14:03
jrib[THC]AcidRain: I do not use one14:04
[THC]AcidRaini am willing to start over and cast out days of knowledge. lol14:04
[THC]AcidRainwhat ftp server would you suggest?14:04
jrib[THC]AcidRain: is there a reason you want to use an ftp server instead of ssh?14:04
iceroot[THC]AcidRain: i dont suggest plain ftp14:04
iceroot[THC]AcidRain: easy to catch passwords14:05
ScuniziPici: understood.. this is kind of an emergency fix.. I can't do things normally in the system because I've been locked out.. so perhaps with a little room it will let me in and I can clear out a bunch of stuff in the more normal fashion.14:05
[THC]AcidRainwhat is difference in ssh? jrib, i like ftp because its only way i know that my users across the world can access my files without having to be half smart14:05
roastedQuestion - I have 2 NICs in my system. DHCP Server is configured for eth0. However, (insert long hardware failure story here) on the new system now it's coming up as eth2 and therefore not starting. How can I "rebind" DHCP Server to eth2 from eth0?14:05
[THC]AcidRainjrib, rly my new question is. is there a ssh client? for window users and such.14:06
Wallace__So I have a directory which is rwxrwxr-t (note: stickybit) owner/group are both 'user', containing files which are r--r--r-- owned by root.  I am logged in as user.  I expect that I cannot rm the file, because I don't own it, but the ubuntu allows me to rm it.  Where am I going wrong?14:06
auronandace!putty | [THC]AcidRain14:06
ubottu[THC]AcidRain: PuTTY is an !SSH client for Windows. Please see: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ for it's homepage and downloads. See also !scp (Secure CoPy)14:06
PiciScunizi: You may want to look at the contents of /var/log/ as well, if unneeded, you can get rid of the older log files in there.14:06
jrib[THC]AcidRain: your users can use sftp basically the same way they use ftp. filezilla is able to do this for example (or winscp or nautilus on linux)14:06
[THC]AcidRainjrib, and what are some sftp servers?14:07
ScuniziPici: I've looked there.. it's a pretty small directory overall.. file sizes are in the "k's" so pretty nominal14:07
jrib[THC]AcidRain: just give them ssh access and they will be able to use sftp.  Do you care that they have ssh access?14:07
[THC]AcidRainjrib, i run several several other servers. earth having access to ssh wont effect anything will it?14:08
jrib[THC]AcidRain: "earth"?14:09
[THC]AcidRainearth = everyone14:09
[THC]AcidRainjrib, i want to create a public ftp account. that anyone can download all public files, and add to 1 folder, called "uploads" then from there i will manage them myself14:10
jrib[THC]AcidRain: that's something probably better suited for an ftp server, but see what others say14:11
=== HipsterPilif is now known as Pilif12p
[THC]AcidRainhttp://blog.markvdb.be/2009/01/sftp-on-ubuntu-and-debian-in-9-easy.html jrib, after looking at this, it appears it would work the same way as what im thinking a normal ftp server should work like14:12

SubNormalcan any one tell me why my connection is "eth0-eth1" I know I have 2 cards but why isint it "eth0" and "eth1"?14:31
ikoniaWallace__: you are the directory owner, so that is why you can delete the files14:33
DamagedFileshow can i find corrupted files in a folder?14:33
ikoniaWallace__: (assuming you are doing this test as the user steve)14:33
Wallace__ikonia, I thought you had to be the *file* owner to delete14:34
ikoniaDamagedFiles: you can't unless you have something to reference them against14:34
ikoniaWallace__: according to the man page, the items owner, the directory owner or the super user14:34
ikoniaWallace__: I was a little surprised too14:34
ikoniaWallace__: the sticky bit is set on the directory in your example, so anything under that directory will be effected14:35
DamagedFilesand how come...nautilus prints a grey space when a jpg is corrupted?14:35
ikoniaDamagedFiles: because it tries to read it and it's not complete14:35
DamagedFilesso there's no tool reading batch files and checking if they are complete or not? that's weird...14:36
Wallace__ikonia, hmm, I want a directory that I can add files to, but not delete from14:36
ikoniaDamagedFiles: not weird14:36
ikoniaWallace__: let me ponder14:37

darkwinisbackiceroot: tried it 5 times...14:39
Wallace__ikonia, srry, was on phone.  I wonder if I change the directory to root:user it will work14:40
icerootdarkwinisback: any errors during that steps? is /var/log/auth.log showing errors?14:40
ikoniaDamagedFiles: because you'd have to read each file into an associated application (eg: an image file into an image view) to know it was incomplete14:41
Wallace__ikonia, hmm, that seems to do it14:41
ikoniaDamagedFiles: or you'd need a reference of the file being ok for you to compare against14:41

netspyis there a way to do an upgrade bypassing current updates? want to migrate from lucid to natty14:43
Wallace__hroi, best suggestion is to examine files in /var/log (e.g. messages, syslog) and see if that reports anything that would indicate you were active14:43
jribnetspy: what do you mean by "current updates"?  And why do you want to avoid them?14:43

ashickur-noor@doritey you may have install Ubuntu 11.0414:59
bayuPici:Thanks14:59
ikoniadoritey: it means your virtual video card is not compatible to run the full graphical experience so goes to "classic" mode, which is less14:59
RawChidbazhang, I've read your URL. But can you or someone else explain in 1 or 2 sentences what a Greeter is?  I'm translating Ubuntu and am not sure if I should translate "Greeter"14:59
FirefishePici...I've never tried that.  If it bonks, will it do the same as the gui-based tools, and auto-cancel the install and revert back properly?14:59
doriteyWhat is unity14:59
doriteyIs it some kind of new interface for ubuntu15:00
auronandace!unity15:00
ikoniadoritey: the desktop you are using15:00
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.15:00

bazhangdoritey, the 3d dock and new interface for 11.04 and beyond15:00
DamagedFilesPici: mogrify15:00
doriteySo Ubuntu previously used "classic GNOME desktop", and now runs something called Unity?15:00
doriteyAnd this is what I can't run15:00
doritey?15:00
usr13Firefishe: There are two ways, the gui and sudo do-release-upgrade15:00
bazhangdoritey, not in a vm, right15:00
Firefisheusr13: I'll try the cli this time15:00
Scall!classic15:01
ubottuThe 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".15:01
doriteyOk. Is there any way to get around this that you know of?15:01
ikoniadoritey: no15:01

rumpe1naxa, print jobs?15:08
naxarumpe1: yes15:09
rumpe1Nitax, sounds like umask15:09
Nitaxbut is umask a global setting or is it local to particular directories?15:09
Nitaxalso, I don't get what the point of setting the uid or gid bits is without also having default permissions for the group or user?15:10
rumpe1Nitax, don't know for sure... but it works with mounts and you can bind/mount directories.15:10
doriteyHi. What does LTS mean.15:12
rumpe1doritey, long term support15:12
doriteyI don't understand from reading the description on the Ubuntu site.15:12
shinsukei want to completely format my hdd. what is the fastest way by software to do that?15:12
doriteyYes but what does it actually mean15:12
jpds!lts | doritey15:12
ubottudoritey: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)15:12
doriteyWhat does "will be supported for 3 years" men15:12
doriteymean*15:12
bazhang3 years desktop, 5 years server doritey15:12
rumpe1doritey, it means you get updates for several year, unlike the other non-lts-versions15:12
doriteyGet updates?15:12
doriteyI don't understand.15:12
usr13Nitax: umask is a global setting but only for the particular user files15:13
bazhangsecurity etc15:13
rumpe1doritey, you don't know updates? o.O15:13
doriteyI know what an update is, but I still don't see how the versions differ.15:13
doriteyHow does 10.04 regular differ from 10.04 LTS15:13
usr13shinsuke: fsck15:13
doriteyLTS means "long-term-support" but I don't understand what this means in that context15:13
Nitaxright, so this is a directory for a project that is shared across users and I want new files created in this directory to be +rw for the whole group15:13
iDirkWhat part you don't understand? :P15:13
bazhangthere is no 10.04 regular gnome doritey15:13
rumpe1doritey, there exists no "regular" 10.04, which isn't LTS15:13
Picidoritey: 10.04 is supported for 3-5 years depending on if you're talking about desktop or server packages.15:14
doriteyOh, I'm thinking of 11.04.15:14
doriteyWell, what's the diff15:14
bazhang!notes > doritey15:14
ubottudoritey, please see my private message15:14
doriteyOr like, what does LTS actually entail from a technical/functional standpoint15:14
Picidoritey: 11.04 is a year older than 10.04 (version numbers indicate the YEAR.MONTH of release)15:15
Picidoritey: er, newer*15:15
PhoenixSTFhello is there any channel for support on eeepc's?15:15
adm_2hi15:15
bazhang!alis | PhoenixSTF15:15
ubottuPhoenixSTF: alis is a services bot that can help you find channels. Read "/msg alis help list" for help and ask any questions about it in #freenode. Example usage: /msg alis list #ubuntu*15:15
usr13doritey: LTS is just a switch that is set that tells your update-manager to only do a ditribution upgrade to the next designated LTS. i.e. 8.04 10.04 12.0415:15
doriteySo when is it decided that a version is LTS15:15
Picidoritey: LTSes are every two years.15:16
adm_2how to know whicj bootloader is working ? after an upgrade from 8.04 to 10.04, i had some file for lilo, some for grub and some for grub215:16
doriteyUgh15:16
Picidoritey: Whats wrong?15:16
rumpe1adm_2, your bootscreen should tell you that15:16
doriteyI still don't understand. What does it actually mean when a version of Ubuntu is "LTS". It has "long-term-support", but what does that even mean? Does it mean that you get tech support?15:17
adm_2rumpe1: i have no bootscreen, only a ssh connection15:17
doriteyDoes it mean that the version is supposed to be supported?15:17
doriteyOk, but in what context?15:17
Gentoo64doritey, means its supported long term15:17
doriteyBy what/whom?15:17
Gentoo64updates15:17
rumpe1doritey, no... just updates over a long periode15:17
jpdsdoritey: You get supported for a longer time, than a normal release.15:17
doriteySo Ubuntu LTS is supported in updates.. b15:17
doriteybut how15:17
doriteywhat does this mean15:17
Picidoritey: It means that security packages are available for 3-5 years depending on which packages you are talking about and supported in community support places like here.15:18
Gentoo64doritey, in ubuntu you get updates for packages for a certain amount of time until the version ends its life. lts just has longer life15:18
usr13It means that that 8.04 and 10.04 have longer end of life.  It means that 6.04 and 8.04 and 10.04 are designated as Long Term.15:18
adm_22 years support for normal release, 5 years for LTS15:18
rumpe1doritey, it means, that if you have a non-lts version, you have to switch earlier to a higher version or you risk security issues15:18
jpdsdoritey: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases15:18
Piciadm_2: 18 months.15:18
usr13!lts | doritey15:18
ubottudoritey: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)15:18
asdqqhi, I got some errors with mplayer and some video files. I read that it was working with a newer version that the one from 11.04. Where can I find more up to date mplayer debs?15:19
Picidoritey: Perhaps something that discusses how software is installed and updated in Ubuntu would be helpful?15:19
rhin0which is now up to 10.04.3 and is rock solid15:19
adm_2oups ok Pici15:19
bazhangasdqq, from their homepage, a ppa or compile it yourself15:19
doriteyYes Pici15:19
PhoenixSTFI have a bit of a issue with bcm4313, cant get it working with 802.11n, has anyone tried to use broadcom-sta-comon?15:19
edbianPhoenixSTF: You CAN get it working?15:20
doriteySo LTS versions are old versions of Ubuntu that get the same software releases as new versions, whereas non-LTS versions cease to get software releases when a new version of Ubuntu is released?15:20
Picidoritey: Let me find a good link.15:20
PhoenixSTFedbian, i can't get it working on 802.11n only g15:20
Picidoritey: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingSoftware is rather informative.15:20
edbiandoritey: Well LTS releases get updates for longer than normal releases but there is more overlap in all of the releases then what you described15:21
doriteyOkay15:21
edbianPhoenixSTF: Which driver are you using?15:21
usr13doritey: So 6.04 reached EOL in April 2009 and was superceeded by 8.04.  8.04 reached EOL  April of 2011 and was superceeded by 10.0415:21
Picidoritey: Think about this: A non LTS release gets updates for just 18 months. In an LTS you could have that install running for 5 years and continue to recieve updates.15:21
doriteyWhat decides when a release is LTS15:22
bazhangusr13, 6.06 actually15:22
PhoenixSTFedbian, don't know lol, how do i check that?15:22
Piciusr13: For the desktop packages. Server support for 8.04 continues to 2013.15:22
doriteyWho's to say that X.XX specifically will be supported15:22
doriteyand not X.XY15:22
doriteyor Y.YY15:22
edbianPhoenixSTF: sudo lspci -k15:22
edbianPhoenixSTF: It will have a large output, you can pastebin it if you need help reading it.  The wifi card is probably near the bottom.15:22
AngelousHello, I was wondering if it's possible to put in the motd Hello, blah. Today is "datehere".15:23
adm_2someone for my pb, i can t boot after an upgrade 8.04 to 10.04,  how to determine which bootloader is working ?15:23
Jim455Rhow do i uninstall pastebin ?15:23
Picidoritey: They are every two years. And the decision is made before work on the release begins.15:23
ikoniaAngelous: sure15:23
usr13bazhang: doritey Oh, ok.  I stand corrected.  it's 6.06 not 6.04  And yes, we're talknig tesktop when we say 3 years, it's 5 years for server.15:23
ikoniaadm_2: there should only be 1 boot loader15:23
AngelousWhat would the synatx be then, ikonia? I'm no bash expert, or anything.15:23
PhoenixSTFedbian, http://pastebin.com/v85MqZR815:23
edbianPhoenixSTF: It will list 'drivers' which is the driver that is currently being used, and 'modules' which is every driver that is installed on the system (but not being used).  drivers are modules in linux15:23
r_a_fdoritey: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LTS15:24
bendrasHi,15:24
Picir_a_f: ah, thanks.15:24
ikoniaAngelous: use the date command `date` or use a script to do "echo todays date is `date`" > /etc/motd each day15:24
PhoenixSTFedbian, ya i can see it15:24
edbianPhoenixSTF: You say wireless n does not work right now?  I have no experience setting up wireless n but I do have some experience with wifi cards in general.15:24
Picidoritey: The link that r_a_f posted has a great image of how the LTSes are supported.15:24
r_a_fPici: np ;)15:24
AngelousNo, ikonia. What I'm wondering if how I would integrate it into the file.15:24
adm_2ikonia: i have files for lilo, other for grub and some for grub2 Oo, how to restore a solid situation (only a ssh connexion)15:24
edbianPhoenixSTF: Let's just try to use the other driver that is listed there.  sudo modprobe -r wl     (to remove wl) and sudo modprobe brcm8021115:24
bazhangJim455R, you mean pastebinit ? pastebin is a service not a package you install15:25
PiciJim455R: Did you mean the pastebinit package?15:25
usr13bazhang: doritey doritey My ubuntu system here was previously 6.06 and was upgraded to 8.04 and then to 10.04 It's been through them all.15:25
ikoniaadm_2: you should only have 1 boot loader, at worst two if you dia a grub1->grub2 upgrade,15:25
bendrasI have a box with "fresh" ubuntu 9.04. Is it safe/OK to upgrade to newer version without getting latest updates for current version?15:25
ikoniaadm_2: remove the config files for the boot loader you are not using15:25
edbianPhoenixSTF: btw, sta and wl are the same driver.  I think they use one another in operation like b43 and ssb   not really sure about that though15:25
PhoenixSTFedbian, well at home not where i am right now, i have 2 routers with 802.11n but my card only gets g 54mbps15:25
osmosis_paulsomebody know if xfoward works with ubuntu?15:25
ikoniabendras: no15:25
ikoniabendras: you need to go through each release15:25
doriteyusr13 alright15:25
doriteywell, thanks to everyone for explaining15:25
AngelousNo, ikonia. What I'm wondering if how I would integrate it into the file.15:26
edbianPhoenixSTF: Are you saying you can't test the card?15:26
trismAngelous: add a script to /etc/update-motd.d/ that uses echo and date as ikonia suggested15:26
ikoniaAngelous: I've just told you15:26
PhoenixSTFedbian, yes well that is the issue, if it aint working with N, if I install the15:26
edbianPhoenixSTF: my suggestion is just to use the other driver that's installed and see if that works.  Can you not do that because you don't have a wireless n signal where you are?15:26
usr13doritey: You'll find the LTS/normal switch on the update-manager15:26
PhoenixSTFedbian, no i dont have a N signal where i am15:26
usr13screen15:26
edbianPhoenixSTF: Well then how are we supposed to fix this? :P15:26
trismAngelous: except without the redirect, so: #!/bin/sh then on the following line echo "Today's date is `date`"15:27
PhoenixSTFedbian, but i have a neibours router that has N, i cant get into it but i can scan!15:27
bendrasikonia: so 9.04 > 9.10 > 10.04>10.10 > 11.04 ?15:27
ikoniabendras: correct15:27
htmlis there a way i can use linux on windows desktop with out a vm on a public pc(windows 7)15:27
adm_2ikonia:  i remove all concerning lilo, how i forced an upgrade from grub to grub2 ? is there a way to upgrade grub2 to accept the new kernel ?15:27
ikoniahtml: no15:27

carl_ok15:28
PiciJim455R: What package?15:28
Jim455Rpastebin15:28
bazhangJim455R, its called pastebinit15:28
usr13doritey: You'll find the LTS/normal switch in the settings menu of the update-manager.  The choices are "Long term support only"  and "Normal releases"15:28
PiciJim455R: pastebin isn't a package name. Are you referring to pastebinit?15:28
Jim455ROK@!! Adriver me crazy15:28
Jim455Rhow to uninstall it15:28
bendrasikonia: but the fact that 9.04 wasnt updated to latest pacages before upgrade to 9.10 wont breake anything hard?15:28
ikoniabendras: yes, it will15:28
carl_salut15:28
Jim455Rhail !15:28
bazhangJim455R, from the package manager, just like everything else15:28
