escottWallyJ2K, service gdm stop; (and then later service gdm start)00:58
urlin2uowen1, a problem at first install you want the daemon running.00:59
ActionParsnipWallyJ2K: just rename the xorg.conf file and reboot, it will put the settings back in to udev and will be the same as when you first installed00:59

urlin2uowen1, ?01:00

owen1Zoidfarb: i'll try it and come back here. i use wicd-cursor btw01:01
htmlZoidfarb,  i do , but i use the gui,  it kicks me alot01:01
WCwarriorcoz: so i have my old card in. being new to this, i was assuming that i could install the driver then switch the cards.01:02
escottWCwarrior, that would make it harder for you. i would boot to terminal and then use jockey-text01:02
coz_WCwarrior,  well as I said I dont know much about  ati,, however,, because of that I dont know if one driver is good for a different card,, i believe some cards require fglrx and other the open source01:03
ActionParsnipWCwarrior: what video card?01:03
WCwarriorescott: please educate me on this process to do so cause when i have the card in and boot, i don't get a boot screen...just a black screen.01:03
ActionParsnipWCwarrior: tried the boot option: nomodeset01:04

escottWCwarrior, if you are going from an older ati to a newer ati its possible that there is an old config laying around. you might uninstall fglrx and go back to radeonhd and then switch to the newer card01:04
ActionParsniprick_bug: what is the filename?01:05

WCwarriorescott: how do i go about of uninstalling fglrx?01:06
escottWCwarrior, we need a bit more info about the specifics. (a) what card do you currently have in there (b) did you install proprietary drivers for that card (c) what do you see on boot with the new card01:06

jukebox-zeroHello, this could be a silly question. I'm compiling the latest SVN build of tovid on an Ubuntu dist. as part of an effort to update all things dealing with media playback/encoding. Is there a way to use something like checkinstall or auto-apt to build a deb package of the SVN snapshot or is the ./setup.py the only method? The ./setup.py works great and this version of tovid works splendidly, the onl01:09

qinGasseus: Do you have separate /home partition?01:13
Zoidfarbqin, does it require Sun java? I think I just installed java-default from synaptic01:14
jukebox-zeroDasEi: Thanks. But the issue is (and sorry, I copy pasted and didn't make this clear) the install script included with source is python, so it doesn't register with apt-get or aptitude as being installed though it is. I would like to know if I could recompile and use make - sudo checkinstall to build a dep, rather than using their .py install script. I am not a programmer and I suspect their code is probably entirely diffe01:14
jukebox-zerorent than source that uses make - check install if they included a .py installer. But I don't know for sure and wondered if any one feels that indicated that make etc wouldn't work?01:14
owen1Zoidfarb: i am ok to use the gnome app.01:14

escottMike9863, its possible that the battery is not getting back to 100% of what should be possible. you can see if the power supply is sending power by looking at /sys/bus/acpi/drivers/ac/ACPI???/power_supply/AC0/online and for the battery you can look at power levels in /sys/bus/acpi/drivers/battery/..../power_supply/BAT0/energy_now vs energy_full01:36

urlin2ujmcantrell, I had to run sudo apt-get install firefox01:49
escottskpl, depends on whether or not you need to swap. if you have 16gb of ram and only ever browse the web, you probably don't need swap. anything from 0-2xRAM is reasonable for somebody01:49
ActionParsnipskpl: then you want 1Gb of swap01:49

Jordan_Ublopm: You can install Ubuntu using Wubi to test things out. (By using Wubi it is as easy to remove Ubuntu again if you don't want it as it is to uninstall any Windows program).01:59
WallyJ2KOK... created the xorg.conf and added settings to it, but I have to restart for it to work, right?01:59

Haematomanotify-OSD is not functioning correctly02:00
Haematomawhere should I begin to troubleshoot it?02:00
escottblopm, fyi... i'm kinda lazy so I'm not going to plug k53e into google and find what kind of system that is. you might want to run lspci and give us the key details list there (cpu and video card)02:00
Jordan_Ublopm: If the graphics drivers work in a Wubi install they will also work in a normal dual boot configuration, so you would either be able to keep the Wubi install or do a normal dual boot install (I prefer the latter).02:00
WallyJ2Kdasei - That is why I did not want to start from scratch02:00

smcopenoffice had a special package that was needed to run in spanish, but the name of the package was openoffice something or other. My question is since libre office forked what is the naming convintion for thier packages?02:07
WallyJ2KI ran the command. It did nothing to the xorg.conf file02:07
blompSIFTU: sorry for the disconnect.02:07
WallyJ2Kmy xorg.conf file only contains the commands you gave me in pastebin02:07
blompSIFTU: It says VGA compatible controller: Intel Corp device 0116 (rev 09)02:08
SIFTUblomp: ok and "uname -a"02:08
escottzroysch, it tells you not to use fdisk, so don't. and besides the partitions are different block sizes compare 1953513472 vs 195351449402:08
escottzroysch, but since you are using fdisk on a gpt disk those numbers are meaningless, as fdisk doesn't even know what the real partition table is02:09
blompSIFTU: ubuntu 2.6.32-33-generic #70 ubuntu SMP todays date i686 GNU/Linux02:09
escottzroysch, cat /proc/partitions02:10
SIFTUblomp: your kernel is too old.. geta live cd with at least kernel 2.6.38 and for best performance kernel 3.002:10
zroyschescott: should i even be using this GPT? I did it mostly as an experiment02:10
blompSIFTU: This is Ubuntu 10.04 thats why. But I should get 11.04?02:10
escottzroysch, you need to use gpt for disks larger than 2gb (or something around that). gpt has a number of advantages, but you do have to use the correct tools02:11
Jordan_Uzykotick9: GPT is great, just don't use fdisk.02:11
mASOUD_42hi, http://paste.ubuntu.com/667839/   this is a scrip using "zenity" to show a GUI message. it works when invoked form a terminal but when crontab calls it, it doesn't work.what's wrong?here's the crontab line i use http://paste.ubuntu.com/667844/02:11
escottzroysch, 2tb not 2gb02:11
zroyschescott: http://pastebin.com/caBDgqNx02:11
SIFTUblomp: yes your chip came out after that kernel and wasnt supported until 2.6.3802:11
* roma yo02:11
SIFTUand even then it wasnt that great.. but kernel 3.0 it's pretty good02:11
escottzroysch, so there you can see sda1 is not the same size as sdb1 or your md array02:12
blompSIFTU: ok the only thing that annoys me about Ubuntu 11.04 is this side bar thing how do i move it or get rid of it.02:13
zroyschescott: why is sda being made smaller? i even repartitioned it in gparted to maximum size. they are both the same make and model hard drive02:13
escottzroysch, since sda is the same size as sdb your problem must be that you have a few spare blocks in sda that you aren't using. this could be because you aligned the blocks at a MB boundary, and using that additional space could break 4k alignment leading to lower performance. you should try and partition with the additional blocks and then check the alignment with parted before proceeding02:13

Flannelga_sk8er: Almost sounds like you don't have admin rights03:14
ga_sk8ershouldnt this apt-update & apt-upgrade make it into 11.4?03:14
muelliga_sk8er: no.03:14
Bridge|anyone good with tomcat here?03:14
muelliga_sk8er: there is "update-manager" for that.03:15
ga_sk8erFlannel i should have admin rights. i loaded ubuntu today & im only user on the pc03:15
Bridge|Tech_Support: java web app server03:15

muelliThe_Rufus: what's the actual problem?03:16
ga_sk8ermaybe the newer version will let my floppy drive work. i need it so i  can do something03:17
The_Rufusmy problem is I know nothing03:17
xanguaga_sk8er: 9.10 and it's epository is no longer supported, i suggest you to download and install a stable supported version from ubuntu.com03:17
muelliBridge|: well. IRC is not necessarily the best support medium. Try writing their mailinglist.03:17
FriGiNomg i am.. good .. ActionParsnip sorry bout earlier im on my cell for net and it died.. i dont have network connection on the desktop still having grub issues, and i want windows loader back03:17
urlin2uFriGiN, do you have a windows disc?03:17
FriGiNurlin2u: yes.03:18
FriGiNurlin2u: its win 7 fdisk /mbr doesnt work03:18
Guest13688muelli: http://pastebin.com/FTQ8b1SY (Part 2)03:18
muelliThe_Rufus: well. You have to understand that our crystal ball is broken right now and we can't magically see your problem. So I'm afraid that you have to explain it to us.03:18
ga_sk8erxangua if i run the "update manager that muelli was talking about would that update the whole system to 11.403:18

Guest72161Hey guys need some help getting my video card working properly, anyone got some time?03:19
urlin2uFriGiN, booted disc repair.03:19
muelliGuest13688: :-/ look as if your MP3 player behaves weirdly on the USB :-( I wouldn't know how to fix that. It's probably a  weird device not according to the standards.03:19
ga_sk8erguest. what is ur mp3 player doing?03:21
=== sam_ is now known as FollowerOfMendax
Guest13688muelli: I don't know if this would be the cause of the issue or not but the device was formly plugged up to an apple/ibook and utilized in that way.. Would there be a lock or something on it by that OS/system that wont allow access on other systems03:22
urlin2uGuest72138, have you named the card on the channel/03:22
FriGiNside question while im waiting on win7 recovery to boot.. i saw an error message earlier today when messing about with all this.. it basically said that im limited to udma33 for my hdd's cuz im on a 40wire cable but these drives are udma 133.. any insight? isnt sata cable a sata cable?03:22
=== satellit_ is now known as satellit_afk
ga_sk8erim  jsut waiting on this stupid thing to finish its updates03:25
FriGiNurlin2u: rebooted after bootrec /fixmbr - still get error no such device: "hex for my hdd" ... grub rescue>03:26
ga_sk8ereven with 1GB memory it takes a while03:26
SIFTUJoeR1: lol i agree.. learn by breaking it.. thats how I learn too03:27
urlin2uFriGiN, try these 4 commands  in the order they appear. http://paste.ubuntu.com/667878/03:27
JoeR1siftu - well yeah, it's not like a car if I break linux I can just re-install no harm no foul03:28
ga_sk8erthats kinda why im in ubuntu right now...hdd error....bios reads my hdd but windows wont read my hdd....ubuntu reads it so i put ubuntu to thehdd for now03:28
urlin2uFriGiN, is the boot on the C partition or a boot partiton?03:28
ActionParsnipga_sk8er: ram doesn't hugely affect updates, its more the drive speed03:28
ga_sk8eraction...but ram does make the pc go faster03:28
ccmonsterhey guys, my wireless wont seem to connect03:29
ccmonsterit just started happening. 11.0403:29
FriGiNurlin2u: at this point only my raid 0 is left in the box. which is the drive that had my mbr b403:29
ga_sk8ercc monster ....have u connected before?03:29
SIFTUJoeR1: I enjoy breaking and and fixing it03:29
ccmonsteryes. it just started happening03:29
urlin2uFriGiN, in other word do you see W7 identified?03:29
ActionParsnipga_sk8er: true but updates are replacing files on the drive with new ones03:30
JoeR1SIFTU - engineer by chance?03:30
FriGiNi didnt really look after i put my raid driver in the recovery console the first time i just assumed it was there like it had been.. im going back in to do what you said03:30
SIFTUJoeR1: yep :) you?03:30
ga_sk8eraction. i know what its doing. replacing with newer versions of programs. im just being impatient & its taking a while lol03:31
JoeR1SIFTU - I studied at Vanderbilt but I didn't graduate (I ran out money)03:31
ccmonsterany idea?03:31
urlin2uFriGiN, run them like this with a C    C:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/92739203:31
JoeR1SIFTU - Mechanical for me you?03:31
The_Rufusmy terminal screen goes off the edge of my monitor and I can't read anything to the left. How can you change the resolution of your command line03:32
ActionParsnipga_sk8er: you can speed up the download speed by using apt-fast instead of apt-get etc03:32
urlin2uoopps hold on FriGiN03:32
urlin2uFriGiN, C:BootRec.exe /fixmbr03:32
ga_sk8erits done now...brb...gotta restart pc03:32
urlin2uFriGiN, the mistaken post is a good link though on bcd03:33
FriGiNmy problem with that is that it wont be c my hdd doesnt load till i load drivers for it.. so it will be f or g or what have you.03:33
ccmonstermy wireless seems to just not connect03:33
ccmonsterit keeps asking for the password, which i know is correct03:33
ccmonsterand i know its on, because my tablet is connected to it03:34
ActionParsnipccmonster: what wireless chip are you using?03:34
FriGiNccmonster: stupid question.. have you restarted your router?03:34
ccmonsterits a usb wireless03:34
ccmonsterand yea, i did it twice03:34
ActionParsnipccmonster: it still has a wireless chip inside03:34
ga_sk8ermiss me? lol03:35
ActionParsnipccmonster: and how did you set it up (if you had to manually do so)03:35
ccmonsterits has randomly stopped working tonight03:35

vitor-brthe firefox stable ppa has released the version 6?03:37
ubottuFirefox 6 will be available as an update for 11.04 shortly. For 10.04 and 10.10, you can use the unofficial and unsupported PPA at https://launchpad.net/~mozillateam/+archive/firefox-stable03:37
ActionParsnipccmonster: if you run:  sudo iwlist scan | head -n 20    what is the device name (wlan0 and ra0 are common)03:38
urlin2uI think that ppa is incorrect.03:38
ActionParsnipurlin2u: you can suggest new factoids if you wish03:38
atdprhsHello, is it possible to decrease the swap to 1 GB instead of 2 GB to give the file system more space?03:38
theadminGosh, Firefox 6 >.<03:38
WallyJ2KOk all... I updated my video drivers in Ubuntu Classic. Now I can get into Standard "Ubuntu" when I log in. But now "Update Manager" crashes when I try to run it. Ideas?03:38
theadminatdprhs: You can resize partitions from any livecd with gparted03:38
ccmonsterthere isnt anything listed as device name03:38
ActionParsnipatdprhs: boot to liveCD and you should be able to resize partition03:38
atdprhswill it effect the installed ubuntu?03:38
ActionParsnipccmonster: it doesn't say 'device name'03:38
ccmonsteri can see the essid of my phone that it's connected to03:39
ActionParsnipccmonster: like the wired connection is eth003:39
theadminatdprhs: Not really, except it could end up running slower03:39
ccmonsterit says wlan003:39
FriGiNurlin2u: it finds the directory that has my OS in it.. however both /fixboot and /rebuildbcd return "element not found"03:39
ccmonsterbut there isn't anything titled device name03:39
ActionParsnipccmonster: ok that's cool03:39
theadminatdprhs: Basic idea - delete swap, resize /, recreate swap with a smaller size03:39
atdprhshow much swap is required to be at least?03:39
urlin2uActionParsnip, I don't know how, but the FF6 is rumored on the doorstep, knocking so seems better to wait till then. ;-)03:39
theadminatdprhs: 1 gig is fine03:39
theadminatdprhs: Normally, $swap = $RAM*2, but I'd never create a 8-gig swap xD 1 gig is enough03:40
seclm193How do i update flash?03:40
atdprhsokayz, so with Gparted from the live CD, I delete part of the swap and then give that part that I deleted to the File System "/"03:40
ActionParsnipurlin2u: i guess, not something I use or care about03:40
urlin2uFriGiN, not sure about raid and Windows, anybody suggest the bootscript?03:40
ccmonsterso what next?03:40
atdprhsit will not damage anything, right theadmin?03:40
ActionParsnipccmonster: tried disabling wireless security, to test03:40
xanguaseclm193: did you install it from repository¿03:41
theadminatdprhs: It won't.03:41
atdprhsI actually need to do that because I only have like 20 MB free on the file system...03:41
ccmonsterdisabling wireless security ?03:41
ActionParsnipccmonster: just to test03:41
urlin2uActionParsnip, sounds pragmatic me ethier I use it though. ;)03:41
atdprhswell, thank you theadmin!03:41
ccmonsterin ubuntu?03:41
atdprhsand ActionParsnip03:41
theadminatdprhs: No problem at all.03:42
ccmonsternot sure how to do that ActionParsnip03:42
theadminOh, he left. Wanted to suggest him Bleachbit >.<03:42
vitor-brI updated firefox now, thanks03:42
WallyJ2Kcurrently running the command line update to see if updated packages fix the problem03:42
ga_sk8erhow do i install adobe flash on ubuntu03:44
urlin2uFriGiN, can you boot a ubuntu live cd and come on the channel to post the bootscript03:45
ga_sk8eri want to watch youtube videos03:45
ActionParsnipurlin2u: arora or chromium daily build here. Firefox can die for all I care :)03:45

bennishey, if i wanted to acces the keyboard config where mousekeys are stored via keyboard and alt+f2, whatcommand would i run?03:46
ferzhi all03:46
urlin2uFriGiN, did you try installing wicd?03:46
ccmonsterActionParsnip, how do i disable wireless security?03:46
ActionParsnipccmonster: its a setting in your router03:47
Pezhedzcan anyone step through a wireless setup with me? I searched the forums and tried everything with no luck03:47
ccmonsteri think i need to be physically connected and I dont have any laptops in the house at the moment03:47
FriGiNurlin2u: dont know about wicd, and dont know how to install if im not connected..03:47
The_RufusCan anyone tell me how to change the resolution in bash?03:47
escottccmonster, you could move the router03:47
urlin2uFriGiN, I see the wireless card, well if you could hard plug that thing and post the bootscript there may be hope03:47
theadminThe_Rufus: xrandr -s 640x48003:48
ccmonsterI wish I could.03:48
ccmonsterthe wireless is next to a box where the actual fiber is wired into the apt03:48
FriGiNurlin2u: i'll do my damnedest. see what happens.03:48
Guest81553hey guys im having a problem running an os on virtual box when i try to startx03:48
The_RufusI'm not in Xwindows, i'm in a command shell03:48
The_RufusI'm running server03:48
escottccmonster, disconnect it. you dont need to be online to disable the wa03:48
urlin2uFriGiN, this sort of fix is easy with the right tools to see if can be done or not.03:48
ccmonsteri am on my phones wireless connectino03:49
ccmonsteri can turn the router off, then back on. is that what you mean?03:49
ccmonsterwhy would the router randomly NOT allow one single device03:49
FriGiNurlin2u: im ready to put a bullet in my head, now it wont boot at all.. post completes but wont even boot off of the usb now.03:49
ActionParsnipccmonster: no, you need to access the configuration in the router and turn off the encryption so that it is unprotected, to see if it connects then03:50
theadminThe_Rufus: Ah... You need to change your kernel line03:50
ActionParsnipccmonster: if I'd meant turn it off and on I would have said that03:50
The_Rufustheadmin: how do you do that?03:51
theadminThe_Rufus: http://shrimpworks.za.net/2005/01/31/change-your-console-resolution-and-colour-depth/03:51
bennishey, if i wanted to acces the keyboard config where mousekeys are stored via keyboard and alt+f2, whatcommand would i run?03:51
ccmonsteragain, why is the router randomly NOT allowing one machine?03:51
theadminThe_Rufus: The grub menu file in Ubuntu though is /etc/default/grub or something03:51
escottccmonster, it may be restricted by mac address03:52
PerfieMI'm UNBANNED03:52
ActionParsnipccmonster: if the wirelees cannot connect to the encryption you are using then you won't be able to connect. You could try reinstating the driver in the same way you installed it the first time03:53
ActionParsnipPerfieM: just don't get banned again ;)03:54
theadminPerfieM: Just try not to get yourself banned again03:54
PerfieMActionParsnip: I can't make any promises :/03:54
ccmonsterit has connected to this router fine, for weeks.03:54

escottbennis, windows key then type system03:59
bennisthank you!03:59
benniswindows key doesn't doanything?03:59
escottatdprhs, you have to boot the system in a livecd and then grow the partition04:00
atdprhsI am on livecd04:00
escottbennis,  is this classic gnome? maybe the "menu" key (the one on the other side)04:00
jmcantrellshould i use ext2 or ext3 for a large external drive?04:01
bennisescott: the munu key just does a right click basically04:01
escottjmcantrell, ext4 is probably best04:01
theadminjmcantrell: ext2 has no journal thus will wear the drive out less04:01
jmcantrellok. so ext2 or ext4?04:01
atdprhsescott, I'm trying to grow / partition with more space by taking 1 GB from 2 GB swap04:02
atdprhsit seems that swap is in an extended partition04:02
ccmonsteralright i re-restarted the router04:02
ccmonsterhow do i see what is happening AS the card tried to connect to the wireess?04:02
escottjmcantrell, its a bit more like pick your features, ext2=basic ext3=ext2+journal which would wear out an ssd, ext4=ext3+extents, but you can have ext4-journal if you need04:02
escottatdprhs, what are the partition numbers of the relevent partitions04:03
npereai have a problem with my httrack offline software04:03

ActionParsnipstanley_: what res do you use?04:12
smwDoes anyone know what the feature difference is between ubottu's encyclopedia plugin and the supybot factoids plugin?04:13
theadminnperea: Uhh... %)04:13
stanley_right now I am restriced to 1024 x 768 because my graphics card driver isn't installed properly, but you can see that the screen is out of focused and it fits awkwardly on the monitor04:13
rwwsmw: Metadiscussion about ubottu is more likely to get a response in #ubuntu-bots-team. It's a bit offtopic here :)04:14
ActionParsnipstanley_: is 1024x768 ok for you if it was sharper?04:14
theadminatdprhs: I also wanted to suggest Bleachbit, which is a program to help you remove a ton of junk (e.g. temporary files, cache, etc) from your disk04:14
stanley_Essentially I would like to use a larger resolution04:14
smwrww, awesome, thanks for the tip04:14

stanley_it would be if it was sharper04:14

atdprhsEscott, I don't understand how that is possible04:15
stanley_I am not 100% certain what resolution I would like really it depends on how it fits on my screen once I see it04:15
stanley_but 1024 x 768 would be ok if it were sharper04:15

escottatdprhs, to do that, you would first have to delete 2, but doing so will automatically also delete 5 and 6. it is possible (but very dangerous) to write down the exact block locations of 5 and 6, then delete part 2 and recreate a new part 2 that is perfectly partitioned to allow you to exactly recreate part 5 and part 6 thus freeing space for part 1. i would NOT recommend you do this04:20

mASOUD_42hi, http://paste.ubuntu.com/667839/   this is a scrip using "zenity" to show a GUI message. it works when invoked form a terminal but when crontab calls it, it doesn't work.what's wrong?here's the crontab line i use http://paste.ubuntu.com/667844/04:24
SIFTUmASOUD_42: you dont have the full path to the script.. and are you running it as your user (the cron). and does it have $DISPLAY set?04:26
FriGiNurlin2u: im finally into ubuntu off a flash drive, for whatever reason it was having troubles had to move the usb to another port.. what now04:26
atdprhsI will reboot and test it, if it worked, I did not touch sdb5 and 6, it should work specially with the 1 GB linux-swap, right?04:26
mASOUD_42SIFTU, i placed the script in ~/bin . yea i run as user like i type crontab -e for editing it. dont know about $display04:27
SIFTUmASOUD_42: but ~/bin isnt in the $PATH04:28
urlin2uFriGiN, in the terminal run all the commands together, a text file will be in home copy and paste all of it to a pastebin and post the http.  http://paste.ubuntu.com/667640/04:28
escottatdprhs, you may need to adjust your /etc/fstab to reflect the new swap04:28
urlin2uFriGiN, link is the commands04:28
SIFTUmASOUD_42: you could add to the $PATH in your script.. or just use the full path in the crontab04:28
FriGiNurlin2u: net.. cant wget04:28
FriGiNurlin2u: oops.. no net. cant wget04:29
mASOUD_42SIFTU, i can run it only by typing its name. does it mean its in $PATH?04:29
escottSIFTU, by default ~/bin is in the path (if it exists)04:29

mASOUD_42SIFTU, ok ty. I'm gonna google the $DISPLAY04:31
urlin2uFriGiN, we just need more info to help you that means net access for doing this on that computer.04:31
escottmASOUD_42, if you want a cron job to show something visually you need to export DISPLAY=:0 and XAUTHORITY=$HOME/.XAuthority first04:31
SIFTUmASOUD_42: you can "echo $DISPLAY" in a terminal.. then get your script to write it out to a file to compare04:31
urlin2uFriGiN, I thought I was clear about that, we don't fix what we don't know.04:32

mASOUD_42escott, SIFTU it say "/var/run/gdm/auth-for-masoud-pipvLh/database"04:51
jukebox-zeromy best guess is it's not finding libx264-dev but it's installed so this is just ... odd.04:52
escottmASOUD_42, thats annoying. that location will change with each gdm login. you could create a script that on login copies that file to .Xauthority or symlinks as needed04:52
mASOUD_42escott, you mean create a cron job that runs on every boot?04:53
SIFTUmASOUD_42: I would start with "export DISPLAY=:0" in yur script and using full paths when calling your script04:55
escottmASOUD_42, no a script that you would add to your gnome-session to make it so your cron session can find the xauth files it needs04:55
SIFTUI didnt think cron processed .bashrc and I'm not sure where ~/bin is added to the $PATH04:55

greg3000hiya friends, I just upgraded my ubuntu box to the latest distro and now the thing just reboots after passing the grub menu.  Anyone else experiencing this?04:57
=== `mOOse` is now known as m00se
escottSIFTU, or maybe not, but i would think so04:58
urlin2ugreg3000, maverick to natty upgrade?04:58
SIFTUescott: ok, but man xauth doesn suggest that04:58
theadmingreg3000: Upgrading Ubuntu breaks a lot and is somewhat dangerous. I suggest backing your /home up and reinstalling altogether.04:58
greg3000urlin2u: yes, natty, it gave me the new 2.6.38-10 kernel04:58
greg3000theadmin: gosh, never knew that.  at one point I was able to get into repair, but having trouble getting to that point tonight.  can I not run some commands to rebuild the initrd or something?  I guess I am not the only one who experienced this05:00
urlin2ugreg3000, boot a ubuntu cd, and run the all the commands together in a terminal and paste bin the RESULTS.txt that will be in home. http://paste.ubuntu.com/667640/05:00
theadmingreg3000: Hm, I'm not sure how to rebuild initrd on Ubuntu. Try "mkinitcpio", though can't guarantee anything there05:00
greg3000urlin2u: ok I will check it out05:00
greg3000theadmin: ok thanks for the suggestion05:00
urlin2ugreg3000, theadmin may be correct did you get a clean upgrade?05:01
greg3000urlin2u: this was a minimal 10.10 install running only command line, and so I upgraded from the command line.  Everything seemed to work fine, just after rebooting the screen goes off shortly after it passes the grub menu05:03
greg3000then it reboots05:03
blomphow do i get my touchpad tab to show back up in mouse preferences?05:03
escottSIFTU, i think if the Xauthority is in a non-standard place then you need to specify where it is. since mine is in ~/.Xauthority i don't seem to need to do the export provided $HOME is set correctly05:04
urlin2ugreg3000, okay you might just follow this guide, 3 methods here a load from a Natty only cd or use the third chroot if another ubuntu cd. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Copy%20LiveCD%20Files05:04
greg3000urlin2u: ok thanks again05:05
urlin2ugreg3000, if your running headless you could follow this I assume. ;-)05:05
greg3000urlin2u: aye it's a headless box05:06
urlin2ugreg3000, grub2 is the link I assume here as well.05:06
SIFTUmASOUD_42: my try worked05:06
greg3000urlin2u: I think it is grub2, gonna go start hacking away.  thanks - will report back05:07
SIFTUescott: trying it with .Xauth moved05:07
urlin2ugreg3000, cool if you had a upgrade that needs restarting there are a couple of commands  as well.05:07
urlin2ufinishing actually*05:08
SIFTUescott: yep.. you are right.. ~/.Xauthority has to exist then you dont need to export05:10
Guest44352hello all05:11
escottSIFTU, thats funny... im on 11.10 and having the exact opposite. mine is promiscous as the enable xhost, but put the xauth back in the right place05:11
escottSIFTU, it took me so long to figure out how to deal with gdm putting the xauth file in /var and now im using lightdm and the server just doesnt care05:12

harry_whats the diffrence between 'su' command and 'sudo su -' command ???05:12
SIFTUescott: I'm using openbox.. and I cant open anything if I move ~/Xauthority05:12

TheUroshi, i have a question ... i hava an old asus eee 900 netbook wich has 4gb + 8gb ssd ... how i can partition this two drives for ubuntu ? .. can i put entire installation on 4gb and leave 8gb for home ?? ...05:13
escottmASOUD_42, the problem you will have is that pipvLH will change every time you login. so you either have to find it each time (you know it will start the same) or force gdm to put the Xauthority in ~/.Xauthority or use xhost to enable host based authentication (less secure)05:13
ActionParsnipharry_: su is for switch user, default is to root which is disabled, sudo su   wil get you a root shell but use: sudo -i   instead05:14
harry_theadmin: but when my application runs it ask for the root password and when i supply the root password my application runs under the root privilages and at that time i am not able to assess the "env | grep GDM_LANG" variable.05:14

statimanyone familiar with pbuilder know how to clean up the environment.  i built something in it, but now there are a bunch of .deb files in the pbuilder area05:15

harry_ActionParsnip:its a GUI application launch on Double click.05:16
ActionParsnipharry_: you can launch gui apps with gksudo05:16
theadmin!gksu | harry_05:16

escottharry_, launching gui apps from su can break your gui config for non-root users05:17

harry_No i am not missing the point but the problem is i just want to understand the basic thing that what happen if i launch my application when it ask for the root password does it use the command 'su' or 'sudo su -'???just the technical clarification i need05:21

rww!guidelines | afschuld05:21
ubottuafschuld: The guidelines for using the Ubuntu channels can be found here: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines05:21
ActionParsnipharry_: this will make it run with elevated priveledges, it is moot what the command is so saying install jammer doesn't have the facility is nonesense. There are tools in Ubuntu to give it the access it needs. Hell you can even run web browsers with te extra access and they don't have the facility either05:21
SIFTUmASOUD_42: The directory where user's .Xauthority file should be saved. When nothing is specfied the user's home directory is used.05:21

nicheHey guys, still trying to resolve a problem I've been having. I have two HDDs, one with Windows 7 and after installing 11.04 Ubuntu on my other HDD I am no longer able to boot the Windows 7 HDD if my Ubuntu HDD is disconnected or if the priority of my W7 HDD is first. I get stuck at "grub>" every time. Can anyone help?05:21
SIFTUniche: sounds like you blew away the bootloader for windows05:22
urlin2uniche, were you able to get the sdb drive changed in the bios to be read first?05:22
nicheSIFTU, any way to fix that without formatting Windows?05:22
ActionParsnipharry_: as a user which is what you are, when you launch any app without sudo etc, it runs as your user. That's all05:23
harry_ActionParsnip:so when i launch my applicationa and it ask for the root password what happnes at time??05:23
SIFTUniche: PM05:23
nicheurlin2u, yes I was and can boot Ubuntu without a problem as long as it is first priority. However, I do not always have this hard drive connected and it poses a big issue if I can't boot W7 without using the grub loader on the Ubuntu HDD05:23
escottniche, you installed grub to the w7 mbr, put it on the other drives mbr, then you can restore the w7 bootloader if you want05:23
urlin2uSIFTU, easy fix just needs sdb first read and grub loaded to the mbr of sdb05:24
ActionParsnipharry_: there is no root password so it will fail. The app is running as user. If you prefix the command with gksudo then it will already be running as root and you wil not be challenged05:24
SIFTUurlin2u: even when he pulls the linux disk?05:24
urlin2uniche, so when yo boot ubuntu did you run sudo update-grub05:25

nicheurlin2u, ok wait so how do I open that partition and delete anything named grub?05:38
gskellingah, SIFTU05:38
gskellingI'm back =D05:38
nicheurlin2u, I'm a noober05:38
SIFTUgskelling: bad experiences :) well it was working but performance wasnt any good05:38
andersoni really didnt understand05:39
gskellingbad experiences eh. hm05:39
andersonbecause u didnt understand what i want05:39
SIFTUanderson: openbox isnt much lighter than lxde.. as lxde uses openbox as it;s WM05:39
gskellingfor my laptop, people have found ways to disable both the intel one and the nvidia one, I can't decide which route I should go05:39
urlin2uniche, no problem if your in Ubunrtu go to home and look in the side left panel for partitions I can give you a screen shot of what it looks like if wanted.05:39
andersonso i install lxde its better than open box ?05:39
blompwhat does it mean my touchpad tab doesnt come up in mouse options?05:39
SIFTUgskelling: ok you can disable the intel one? do that05:39
ActionParsnipanderson: its a nicer experience but you can run just openbox05:40
don-iso this is a non ubuntu q, but i think you guys might know. Can any router be used as an AP ?05:40
nicheurlin2u, Gotcha. Now how do I find anything named Grub on this large 1TB HDD? lol05:40
don-ior "repeater"05:40
ActionParsnipanderson: like I said, it doesn't do the server any favours using a gui05:40
SIFTUanderson: well not exactly.. but the DE in LXDE isnt that much heavier than plain openbox05:40
gskellingSIFTU, I get much better battery life with just the intel one though05:40
ActionParsnipdon-i: I'd ask in ##networking05:40
SIFTUgskelling: yeah.. do you game?05:40
don-iActionParsnip, thanks :)05:40
urlin2uniche, the boot file look here. http://imagebin.org/16827105:41
gskellingSIFTU, a little, not much05:41
andersoni need to get connected to my vps via vnc and for do that i need graphical inteface to open browser , open programs etc ..05:41
harry_Ok guys thanks for the information...05:41
ActionParsnipanderson: but it's a server, what programs do you need?05:41
SIFTUgskelling: well the intel one is fine if you dont.. and with kernel 3.0 is actually pretty good (2000fps in glxgears)05:41
andersonbrowser like chromium etc ..05:41
nicheurlin2u, OK, deleted the Grub folder out of boot, woot. Now is this like a Mac where I have to empty the trash bin? lol05:42
ActionParsnipanderson: then its not a server, its a desktop system05:42
urlin2uniche, look on that main page and the boot file for anything grub.05:42
gskellingSIFTU, also disabling the intel graphics card requires me to turn my ASUS laptops SATA mode to "compatible" instead of "Enhanced" which I'm afraid would mess up the performance of my SSD05:42
andersonyes i need install desktop on vps05:42
ActionParsnipanderson: why would you want to vnc to a system to run a browser exactly?05:42
SIFTUgskelling: you are lucky you have the option.. I'm stuck05:42
gskellingSIFTU, what laptop?05:42
andersonjust to browse and use the vps as desktop as i use my computer desktop05:43
nicheurlin2u, there was only 1 item inside of the boot folder. It was a folder called Grub and I deleted it. Is there anything else I need to hunt down and delete? I don't know what you mean by main page05:43
SIFTUgskelling: dell XPS 15 l502x05:43
gskellingI worked on one of those today! =P05:43
ActionParsnipanderson: the guide ubottu gave shows how you can use an SSH tunnel to secure vnc05:43
gskellingbig huge honkin' things, but they are powerful05:43
andersonwhat is the lighter browser on ubuntu05:43
andersoni think dinno ?05:43
SIFTUgskelling: yeah has the i7 quad05:44
gskellingis it hard to get the 3.0 kernel working well on ubuntu 11.04?05:44
ActionParsnipanderson: arora is light, or lynx05:44
gskellingmaybe I'll try the intel one with that first, I really don't want to reduce the performance of my ssd05:45
andersonarora ?05:45
ActionParsnipgskelling: shouldn't be too hard but you won't be supported here as it;s a 3rd party kernel05:45
SIFTUgskelling: you could get it from a PPA or manually compile it05:45
urlin2uniche, no run the script again so we can see that the grub.image is gone, be sure to tab my nic to. ;-)05:45
ActionParsnipanderson: yes?05:45
andersoni realy didnt understand your last reply05:45
nichetab your nic to? Elaboration?05:46
SIFTUniche: means autocomplete.. start typing a nic and press tab05:46
urlin2uniche, and paste here. http://paste.ubuntu.com/05:46
nicheI'm such an idiot05:46
nicheurlin2u, http://paste.ubuntu.com/667946/05:48
ActionParsnipanderson: arora is  alight browser, you asked for the name of a browser, so I gave arora as a suggestion.05:49
andersonarora is lighter than dinno ?05:49
ActionParsnipanderson: its a light browser, much lighter than firefox and such05:50
SIFTUanderson: define lighter05:50
ActionParsnipanderson: there is also swiftfox and iceweasel05:50
urlin2uniche, good job it is gone, now I would prefer putting the MS boot in the mbr, but lilo (another bootloader) works for booting windows05:50
urlin2uniche, can you find that MS disc, or you want lilo?05:51
andersonok thank u , but i need if u can please just the lighter one on ubuntu05:51
nicheurlin2u, hmmmmmmm. Let me take a look for that disk. How much trouble is it to do this with lilo?05:51
ActionParsnipanderson: I'm not quite sure. I'd go for arora. If you want the lightest then Lynx will use very few resources and doesn't even need an x server to be present05:51
urlin2uniche, just a ubuntu disc boot and opening the universal repo and two commands05:52
andersonsudo apt-get install Lynx ?05:52
ActionParsnipanderson: lower case l05:52
ActionParsnipanderson: it will work, but has no flash support05:52
andersonand what is the lighter browser have flash support05:53
ActionParsnipanderson: arora05:53
ActionParsnipanderson: flash will most likely run high cpu usage on the box, depends how much CPU power you have05:54
flametai1Anyone in here have an HP Slate 500?05:54
nicheurlin2u, so I use the 11.04 Live CD to do it? How do I go about opening the universal repo?05:54
ubottuGnome 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.05:54
nicheurlin2u, does lilo have any strange quirks that the Windows bootloader would not have?05:55
nichelike annoyances when booting the W7 HDD05:55
SIFTUanderson: http://paste.ubuntu.com/667953/ <-- take your pick05:56
urlin2uniche, open synaptic-settings-repositories first tab tick universe, close those windows leaving synaptic open hit reload then close sysnaptic and open a terminal.05:56
zambaboois it possible to install other releases using nattys' netboot?05:57
zambaboo(pxe, preseed)05:57
andersonthank you very much05:58
urlin2uniche, no lilo you will never see it windos bot will show like normal, especially if from the HD.05:58
urlin2uwindows boot05:58
ActionParsnipflametai1: looks decent05:59
nicheurlin2u, so when I have both HDDs installed and W7 HDD is top priority, is it going to ask me if I want to boot W7 or Ubuntu?05:59
urlin2uniche, windows first in bios will boot like it has a MS bootloader straight in. ;-)05:59
urlin2ulike magic niche, ;-)06:00
flametai1ActionParsnip, It is, but I'm unsure if it's possible to put Linux on. And have it operatable of course. Considering Linux can go onto anything.06:00
flametai1ActionParsnip, I saw a thread about it but people were saying the touch didn't work I believe.06:01
nicheurlin2u, sweet, now what commands do I need to enter when I boot with the Live CD and open universe and terminal?06:01
ActionParsnipflametai1: put ubuntu on an SD card etc and boot to it, see how it goes06:01
ActionParsnipflametai1: assuming it can boot SD card06:01
urlin2uniche, so boot the 11.04 let me know if you want those instructions again06:01
urlin2uniche, open synaptic-settings-repositories first tab tick universe, close those windows leaving synaptic open hit reload then close sysnaptic and open a terminal.06:01
ugly_duckwhats the panel called thats at the bottom of the screen, i love it but natty doesn't have it by default, i like seeing what apps are open all the time06:02
flametai1ActionParsnip, I suppose I could. Just didn't want to waste my time lol06:02
nicheurlin2u, I don't understand. So after doing that and opening Terminal, lilo will be installed on my W7 HDD?06:02
urlin2uniche we will run one command after you load lilo.06:02
ActionParsnipugly_duck: probably gnome-panel. Its lxpanel here :)06:03
NubnubCan any one tell me How to get Compiz to work on Kubuntu? I have all of the packages Dl'd...06:03
urlin2uniche, just follow these instructions, I will cover you here. open synaptic-settings-repositories first tab tick universe, close those windows leaving synaptic open hit reload then close sysnaptic and open a terminal.06:03
nichekk I'm just going to boot and do that and get back into chat06:03
flametai1ActionParsnip, lxpanel? So you are not running Ubuntu then I assume?06:04
urlin2uniche, cool I will explain then the two commands after the instructions06:04
ActionParsnipflametai1: lxde is in the repos, it uses lxpanel06:04
ugly_duckActionParsnip: thats not to bad actually..06:04
ugly_duckbut this one only has the trash and thats it06:04
ActionParsnipflametai1: my desktop on my lappy: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8850924/Images/Desktop.png06:05
ActionParsnipugly_duck: natty puts stuff on the top panel06:05
ActionParsnipflametai1: look nito lubuntu ;)06:06
NubnubAany1 Familiar with Kubuntu? and changing Window managers?06:06
flametai1ActionParsnip, ah, okay then. And oh very interesting! It's colorful :D Something my desktop is not aware of lol! And it sort of reminds me of Kubuntu.06:06
ActionParsnipflametai1: its a lot lighter, its very blue, not too jazzy06:06
longjohn30Nubnub: #kubuntu?06:06
Nubnubjust installed 2 days ago06:07
longjohn30ActionParsnip: is your power consumption noticably lower with lxde as opposed to other distros?06:07
Nubnubdl'd and installed 2 days ago06:07
longjohn30Nubnub: i'm saying your question would be better answered in #kubuntu06:07

ActionParsnipflametai1: looks groovy06:09
flametai1Also, ActionParsnip, LibreOffice, are those closer to microsoft office than OpenOffice? I've been looking for a replacement for Microsoft Office on Linux other than OpenOffice, it doesn't seem to cut it for me.06:10
flametai1And considering I need them as close as possible for college.06:10
flametai1It would be helpful to find it06:10
SIFTUflametai1: libreoffice is a fork of openoffice, so is very similar06:11
flametai1Ah okay.06:11
ActionParsnipflametai1: not sure what the difference is. I just use what's there. There are plenty of comparison sites talking about the differences06:11
ActionParsnipflametai1: tbh, I usually pull it off and just use abiword, I don't fully use openoffice so I save resources (makes a faster pc :))06:12
=== evil is now known as Guest1303

greg3000So I've got an amd phenom II 4-core box and it's having trouble booting ubuntu.  Trouble started after an upgrade to 11.04, but I just downloaded a copy of ubuntu server 64bit, burned it to CD, and this system still reboots near the start of the boot-up sequence.06:21
speedrunnerG55imah try to reboot.06:21

urlin2ubrave soul06:21
niche-LiveCDurlin2u, not finding anything in synaptic package manager that says universe06:22
niche-LiveCDwhere should I be looking06:22
urlin2uniche-LiveCD, synaptic-settings-repositories first tab tick universe, close those windows leaving synaptic open hit reload then close sysnaptic and open a terminal.06:22
rawfodogmy icons wont minimize to the tray. I've deleted the top panel, and moved everything to the bottem. I've included INDICATOR APPLET ALL. Why wont things show up in the systems tray ?06:23
urlin2uniche-LiveCD, your not searching in synaptic but opening these in the top panel06:23
rawfodogNEVERMIND, it's because I didnt add "Notification container"06:24
niche-LiveCDurlin2u, so you want me to Un-tick Community-maintained Open Source Software (universe) ?06:25
rawfodogI take that back. XCHAT still wont show up in the minimized tray06:26
urlin2uniche-LiveCD, don't untick anything first tab at the top far left 2nd line universe tick on.06:26
niche-LiveCDurlin2u, it already had a checkmark then. What do I need to do now06:27
rawfodogWhen I 'x' out of xchat it asks "minimize to tray ?". I won't show in the tray when I minimize it.  I look at the processes and it's still running. It's in the tray right now, but I didn't close it06:27
speedrunnerG55its still isnt in use06:27
speedrunnerG55i thought there was a way to turn it on but i dont remember06:27
urlin2uniche-LiveCD, close those windows leave synaptic open and hit reload let it run then close it and open a terminal.06:27
rawfodogThere is, it asks me and I say yes06:27
niche-LiveCDurlin2u, roger, ready for next step06:28
rawfodogIt used to work before I went customizing the panels06:28
maheanuuDoes anyone here know where I can find manuals for ubuntu and terminal command usage etc  in French.  I have installed 11.04 on my grandsons and daughters computers and they are very much needing instructions in their mother tongue, any help would be greatly appreciated06:28
glebihanrawfodog, did you restart xchat ?06:28
rawfodogmany times06:28
urlin2uniche-LiveCD, so where are yo at.06:28
rawfodogIts in the minimize panel now, but the program window is active06:28
urlin2ulets just for being care run the sudo fdisk -l to make sure sdb is still the windows drive06:28
speedrunnerG55can i at least know here it is?06:29
urlin2uniche-LiveCD, look above06:29
rawfodogThe second I ex it out, it SHOULD be in the panel, the process manager shows it is running, and on default gnome set up it would still show.06:29
rawfodogFor me however, after deleteing the panel and putting everying into one panel, it doesn't show06:29
speedrunnerG55like a general idea of where i can find it?06:29
speedrunnerG55i dont know why it wouldnt be right in aditional drivers,06:29
speedrunnerG55its like i have to go on a scavenger hunt06:30
niche-LiveCDurlin2u, sda2 is my W7 partition06:30

gskellingit has a couple of ubuntu only related issues07:17
gskellingso I thought i'd try07:17
urlin2uLewis29, same fro firefox07:17
ikoniagskelling: how is it ubuntu related ?07:17
gskellingikonia, just the issues during install07:17
zambaikonia: tell me about it :)07:17
gskellinginstalling it on ubuntu requires a few extra steps07:17
gskellingvs other linux distros07:17
zambaikonia: and i'm of course running 64-bit :)07:17
gskellingat least thats what I think07:17
ikoniagskelling: what issue during install07:18
ikoniazamba: the honest answer is, even symatic don't support it (I know their website says they do) but they don't support anything beyond 8.04 due to the dirty hacks,07:18
gskellingikonia, in this one tutorial I found for php-gtk on ubuntu it says "We need to patch the PHP-GTK source because Ubuntu is using a version of libtool which appears to be different than what other distributions are using."07:18
evil_i lose mine secret key,how could i find it?07:18
urlin2uLewis29, if you installed from the terminal history, and ctrl-alt-t opens a terminal07:18
zambaikonia: well, give me the dishonest answer then :)07:18
ikoniagskelling: I thought php-gtk was already in the repos07:18
ikoniazamba: "yes, it's fully supported by symantec and works out of the box"07:19
gskellingikonia, I don't think so...07:19

gskellinglivingdaylight, I can't remember, like I said I haven't used it in awhile. If you're at the web interface you're on the right track though. Remember the point of subsonic is to share your music with any computer in the world, so a username and password are a good idea to prevent any random stranger from getting to it07:45

Peddymang0, what kinds of things do you have installed with Wine?09:37
ikoniamainrain: #winehq would be the best place to ask09:37
mang0Peddy: Games, Ableton live, a couple of others...09:38

Can someone please take a look and point out what I am doing wrong?09:39
mang0Peddy: but doesn't wine have to detect where the programs are? Or can I really just sort out the .desktop and move the whole .wine folder?09:39
Peddymang0, I'm looking for a .desktop file, to see what it's like - do you happen to know where they're located?09:40
mang0Peddy: I was about to ask the same thing!09:40
mang0I've got no idea where .desktop stuff is :/09:41
Peddymang0, from what I remember, there is nothing unique to your hard drive in the launcher - but if the path to .wine is different, you'll need to change that09:41
Peddymang0, e.g. if the other computer has a different username09:41
mang0Peddy: For example, I want to move it from this harddrive to my other one; /mnt/HDD209:42
mang0not to a differant computer09:42
Peddymang0, by the way, the .desktop files are in /home/yourname/.local/share/applications/wine09:42
Peddymang0, oh, I see. Well, in that case, the easiest thing to do would be to move it, then make a symbolic link to .wine in your home directory09:43
mang0Peddy: Okay. So if I move the .wine folder to where I want it, then change the .desktop files, It'll be sorted?09:43
Peddythe above way is much easier and takes 2 seconds :D09:43
mang0yeah haha09:43

emmkaiPolah: i need the location of the drive to put in [here]: sudo mount -t hfsplus [here] /media10:11
emmkaiit's supposed to be /dev/ something, right ?10:11

mrgenixusI've been forced to boot my installation media from my installation target drive10:46
coz_mrgenixus,  what is happening or not happening with the cd?10:46
mrgenixusit's pre-partitioned10:46
mrgenixusbut I can't select a root partition in the installer10:46
de-levecoz, have tried before, dont show all the config, i want a better config for the image, i have that, my monitor supoprt, but dont know how to...10:46
jribmrgenixus: make sure it's not mounted10:46
fatih1993jrib: so, will i install this package additionly?10:47
mrgenixusor, more specificially, I can select it, but it wants to unmount the ENTIRE disk, in order to format one of the partitions10:47
jribfatih1993: you need to install only libmysqlclient-dev10:47

coz_de-leve,  let me check . hold on10:47
mrgenixusbut it doesn't really need to be doing this. I just needs to mount the (already formatted) partition10:48

mrgenixusPolah, I've got the install media written to the first partition10:51
mrgenixusso, it can' be unmounted, as it's the running session10:51
mrgenixusergo, I can't reformat10:51
mrgenixusergo, I can't select a root partition10:51
ikoniamrgenixus: thats not really a bug10:51
Polahmrgenixus: Well you can't install it there then. Burn the ISO to a disk or USB and install...10:51
mrgenixusikonia: in what way is that not a bug10:51
mrgenixusmy cdrom is ruined, won't boot10:52
mrgenixusthe system is a laptop, and predates booting from usb, apparently10:52
ikoniamrgenixus: in that how can you expec tto format a partition you are using10:52
coz_mrgenixus,  what about a flash drive10:52
Polahmrgenixus: The same way you can't install onto a USB from the same USB... Then burn a new CD or put it into a USB flash drive10:52

ikoniamrgenixus: if you're not using that partition why can't you unmount it10:53
mrgenixusI don't need to unmount it, it's not mounted10:53
Polahdomedagen: Everybody in here is a volunteer. We do not expect payment for helping people.10:53
coz_de-leve,  are you still there?10:53
ikoniamrgenixus: why can't you select a root file system then ?10:53
mrgenixusthe installer insists it needs to unmount the partion I'm using, not the one I'm installing to10:53
mrgenixusikonia: because there's a bug in the installer10:53
ikoniamrgenixus: that doesn't sound correct10:53
mrgenixusit won't select a partition, unless I select a filesystem format10:53
mrgenixusIf I select a filesystem format, it says it has to repartition (which it doesn't)10:54
Polahmrgenixus: Shrink the partition with the installation files, make another partition to use as root and install there instead10:54
auronandacedomedagen: if you want to you could always donate to ubuntu10:54
auronandace!donate | domedagen10:54

mrgenixus^^ sda210:55
mrgenixuswhy should I shring anything?10:55
mrgenixusI have everything I need now10:55
mrgenixusif this was gentoo I would be done a week ago10:55
Polahmrgenixus: Yes, so move the installation media to another smaller partition. Therefore you can format the partition you plan to install on with no problems.10:55
mrgenixusPolah: like this: the installation media is on sda1, formatted FAT, trying to install to sda210:56
coz_mrgenixus,   I would strongly reccommend  jfs and dont bother with xfs  but that's just my opinion10:56
Polahmrgenixus: So there's no problem with just reformatting it, then...?10:56
majestikany plans for 11.10 to be scalable? i mean if it detects your GPU cant handle Unity is it gonna fall back to say Unity2D or Gnome3.x10:56
mrgenixuscoz_: srsly, not relevant10:56
mrgenixusPolah: IT's FORMATTED10:56
Polahmrgenixus: Yes, but if it wants you to reformat it in order to install and there's no reason why you shouldn't, then the obvious choice is to just do that.10:57
mrgenixusthe installer won't format it, unless it unmounts /dev/sda110:57
coz_mrgenixus,  so the istall wants to format to ext4 ...yes?10:57
mrgenixuscoz_ no.10:57
domedagenauronandace: TY for advice10:58
coz_mrgenixus,  if it wants to reformat the partition and you are trying to install 11.04,, my guess is it will reformat to ext410:58

* p1l0t *yawn* Good morning10:58

mrgenixusPolah: first, I tried repartioning from the installer (FAIL), then I tried partitioning manualy with fdisk (Success) and then doing the install, and formatting with the installer (fail)10:58

jattempathy with messenger account: network error10:58
jattis this a known problem?10:58

mrgenixuslastly, I formatted manually and tried to just select the destination (it wants to unmount /dev/sda1)10:59
mrgenixuscoz_: there is no way that what you're describing could possibly require the system unmount unrelated partitions11:00
mrgenixuscoz_: I insist that my choice of filesystem is not relevant11:00
majestikcoz_: ext4 is a win dude, unless your using a SSD then i'd suggest manual ext2 with no swap personally11:00
coz_what ?11:00
Polahmrgenixus: Have you actually tried with another filesystem, though?11:01
mrgenixusPolah: in fairness, no.  I still call this a bug11:01
mrgenixuseven if my use is off-label11:01
mrgenixusI'm not asking the system to do anything I shouldn't be able to do11:01
majestikignore me coz_ stick to the guy you was talking to i dont have enough info on your issue and i'm currently at work sorry to but in lol just my two cents11:02
Polahmrgenixus: So perhaps try with another filesystem, and if it still happens then I'll guess you have a faulty installer, or if it works then it's a strange problem with formatting to XFS11:02
mrgenixusPolah: I'm sure the md5 on the installer would match spec11:02
mrgenixusit's def. a bug, even with XFS11:02
mrgenixusit's just a more specific bug11:02
Polahmrgenixus: Go and check the MD5 just in case, and try with another filesystem so as to determine if it's the installer in general or just when you attempt with XFS.11:03

cook1esis there some trick to give my admin user root access? I am aware of the insecureness of this, but wondering anyways12:03
iceroot!sudo | cook1es12:04
ubottucook1es: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo12:04
icerootcook1es: never EVER put your user in the root-group12:04
dr_williscook1es,  your admin user techinally does have 'root' access...  clarify what you are wanting to do exactly..12:05

ikoniapyghassen: ok - I'm going to stop helping you unless you start listening13:00
ikoniapyghassen: calm down and listen to the advice I'm giving you - then I can help you13:00
pyghassenikonia: what did you say?13:01
ikoniapyghassen: please show me the output of the command "id"13:01
pyghassenok I'm listening13:01
pyghassenikonia: here it is uid=1000(ghassen) gid=1000(ghassen) groups=1000(ghassen),1001(subversion)13:02
ikoniapyghassen: was this the default user you setup ubuntu up with ?13:03
pyghassenikonia: it is the same exact one13:03
ikoniapyghassen: (eg: when you installed ubuntu, was this the user account you created)13:03
ikoniapyghassen: have you modified that account in anyway ?13:03
pyghassenlike what? ikonia13:03
ikoniapyghassen: changed it's users/groups13:03
pyghassenI just added a this user to www-data group that's all13:04
ikoniapyghassen: it would appear you've done that wrong, as that user is not a part of the www-data group at all, plus it has been removed from some of the core groups such as the "admin" group13:05
DebiansArmyWaltzingAlong: I think it is like most people say Firefox has become blooted just to much...13:05
ikoniapyghassen: to resolve this is quite simple, boot into recovery mode (from the grub menu) select a recovery shell and use the command "usermod -G admin ghassen"13:06
ikoniapyghassen: that will add the user back into the admin group, from there you can reboot and you'll have sudo access again13:06
ikoniapyghassen: you can then use the user gui to correct add the user to the groups you need13:06
pyghassenfor some reason I needed it be in the www-data group, I didn't know that when you put it in one group it will be revmove13:06
pyghassenremoved in the other group13:06
ikoniapyghassen: you didn't put it in the www-data group as you can see, it's not in that group13:07
ikoniapyghassen: if you follow the instructions I've given you, you will be back working fine in about 5 minutes13:07

lvhI have a WD Velociraptor drive that used to be part (half) of an isw software raid array. Even when I tell the alternative installer to not run dmraid, it refuses to create filesystems on that drive (saying it's in use by the system -- it appears the md subsystem thinks that drive is interesting too...). How can I kill the isw metadata on the drive? I've checked dmraid, but the installer doesn't have the manpage and it isn't obvious to me how I should go forward.13:09

ikoniaklingelbart: untar the file, make the script executale, run it, what is the problem ?13:12
Polahimi: Does that work the same as sh file.sh?13:13

lewis93DebiansArmy, apologies. I just ran that, and the output is this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/668256/13:26
iridiumbecause bourne shell is already in /bin/bash13:26
ikoniash is representative of bourne shell, which ubuntu has linked to dash/ash depending on how you set it up13:26
ikoniabash is bourne again shell, it's updated clone of it, it is not bourne13:27
DebiansArmylewis93: RTL8192SE has a failure... The problem is a driver .... Post that to Ubuntu let them work out driver... It is not supporting Natty...13:31

DebiansArmylewis93: these are hits and usually a bunch of misses to get your wifi card to work....  Just wait would be best advice will take at least 3 months for Ubuntu to get around to a new driver...13:42
ikoniaDebiansArmy: that's nosense, ubuntu won't randomly update or not update a drive13:43
ikoniaDebiansArmy: it needs to be defined if the card is supported, if there is a problem with the current kernel module, a bug needs to be logged detailing it so it can be updated to resolve it13:43
ikoniait won't just happen on it's own13:43
lewis93DebiansArmy, I'll play it safe and wait then - thanks so much for your help. Someone on the forum said the same thing as you; it is indeed a firmware issue. Fingers crossed it all goes smoothly. Cheers again13:44
DebiansArmyikonia: how said randomly if there is a lot problems with Natty they work through driver problems one step at a time... Where did you get random13:44
ikoniaDebiansArmy: you said just wait around for 3 months13:44
ikoniathat is random - with no reason or structure13:44
ikoniaDebiansArmy: a bug needs to be logged if the card is supported, detailing the problem and if possible the resolution, that then needs to be pushed through the bug process13:45

jrqinstalling 11.04 on a samsung n150 with wubi - it's frozen during installation, what gives?14:20
Benkinoobyjrq, if possible avoid wubi install14:21
Polahjrq: Not enough hard drive space, perhaps. Corrupt download of the image. Also +1 for Benkinooby, a proper install is much better.14:21
LaykeFound the solution for the missing pipe key.14:21
Laykexmodmap -e "keycode 94 = backslash bar"14:21
Laykefixed it.14:21
jrqPolah: by 'proper' you mean usb14:21
rumpe1klingelbart, write a script an put it into autostart or maybe use command "{command1 ; command2}"14:21
Benkinoobyjrq, usb or cd14:22
Polahjrq: I mean installing Ubuntu properly in it's own partition, rather than just as an image within your Windows partition.14:22
jrqn150 doesn't have an optical drive14:22
jrqand i'm installing to a seperate partition14:22
Benkinoobyjrq do it with pendirve14:22
Picijrq: Wubi creates a disk image inside your windows partition.14:23
bfreisIs it possible to install Oneiric's package openjdk-7-jdk on Natty without upgrading the whole system?14:23
jrqok the consensus is pendrive is the best usb tool?14:23
Benkinoobyjrq, Pici is right... it just pretends to be a partition14:23
Polahjrq: Still not a proper install. WUBI makes a virtual install, it makes an image in the Windows filesystem and boots into using the Windows bootloader. A proper install is an independent install on a separate partition, with its own filesystem and booted using a suitable bootloader. GRUB can boot Windows and Ubuntu so you needn't worry about getting into your Windows install14:23
Benkinoobyjrq, check out http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download there you will see how to make a usb for ubuntu install with windows14:24

There the bug page doesn't get updated for more then enough or there is still unsupported hardware... Natty has about 10 or 15 wifi cards that are currently not working... Hmm... Yet for 4 months that's a good...14:44
edbianPolah: I don't think so.  At least, on my system if you #!/bin/sh at the top and you write bash specific stuff (like [[ ) you'll get syntax errrors14:44
DebiansArmy...rate of resolution already lewis93 has a support person looking into his card... Hmm... funny ikonia jumps down my shit doesn't even look to see if he reported the bug which he did using the same name as on here.... Yet since I haven't been in this IRC site in what 2 years I can't remember either of your handles ... Lets see I remember [THC]AcidRain , Pic and dr_willis  just not you funny ....14:44
mcotostlPolah, its an HP wireless keyboard, i think its from an old pavillion14:44
Polahmcotostl: Probably an issue with drivers for the receiver then. Use a wired keyboard (;14:45
bassohello, how can i force the grub menu to show up at boot?14:45
Polahedbian: I've found using #!/bin/bash and #!/bin/sh fairly interchangeable. Maybe the stuff I've been using isn't particularly bash specific.14:46
Polahbasso: Hold shift while booting14:46

auronandace!dash | edbian14:46
ubottuedbian: /bin/sh links to the DASH shell in all releases since Ubuntu Edgy (6.10). Since DASH is not 100% compatible with the BASH shell, some scripts might break. You can make scripts execute using BASH by changing the first line of the script to « #! /bin/bash14:46

jrqhanding this machine over with 11.04 as a windows replacement...just wondering if there is a quick way to auto-prevent old grub entries from piling up after each update14:47
edbianmcotostl: Ubuntu is actually doing that automatically to all of your hardware.  That's the way the kernel works14:47
escottHSarena, hit the windows key, then type mouse. its on the second tab of the mouse preferences. as for it getting stuck you can play around with synclient to tweak sensitivities14:47
Polahedbian: I just did man sh and got the man page for dash14:48

jrqor is it only possible to remove old grub entries manually after each update14:48
edbianmcotostl: sure14:48
mcotostlpolah or edbian, one last questions, is there a way to enable the on-screen keyboard once i get past the login?14:49
Polahmcotostl: If you go to System > Preferences > Accessibility (or something along those lines) you'll be able to set options for that I believe14:49
escottjrq, remove the specific kernel versions you don't need with dpkg14:49
dr_willisjrq in the next release they get under a 'old kernels' grub menu item. ;) which is nice14:49
mcotostlpolah, i checked there, but i didnt see anything, i'll check again14:50
mcotostlthanks all14:50
Polahedbian: Wouldn't using #!/bin/bash at the start make it work as bash anyway?14:50
jrqescott: this computer is for a windows noob, i wanted it done automatically14:50
edbianPolah: If you did sh /path/to/file.sh and the file started with #!/bin/bash would definitely make it bash14:50
Polahmcotostl: I recall options for it floating about somewhere14:50

ActionParsnipcoldboot|home: the guys in #compiz may also know16:19
coldboot|homeI'm asking there, too.16:19
ActionParsnipgood :)16:19
coldboot|homeBy the way the new Unity Desktop sucks and shouldn't be forced on upgrade.16:19
coldboot|homeI can see it's an attempt to imitate Mac's interface, but it's too crappy to force on users when they upgrade, just like pulseaudio was.16:20
sipiorcoldboot|home: suck it up.16:20
Polahcoldboot: So just select Ubuntu as a session when you log in. You're not forced to use it and nothing else.16:20
auronandacecoldboot|home: feel free not to use it, my favourite is xfce16:20
ikoniacoldboot|home: don't use ubuntu if you don't like unity, or move to kde/xfce etc16:20
zagibunbuntu: did you do the connect USB thingie on your Tab? or is that not necessary in honeycomb?16:20
kingofswordshow do i get wine 1.3.25 to work with pulseaudio16:20
coldboot|homeI was already using Ubuntu, and it automatically switched to Unity when I upgraded to 11.04. On my machine at work, for some reason it didn't do this.16:21
=== spookz is now known as spo0kz
coldboot|homeMy point is you shouldn't force the switch when a user upgrades, even if they can change it later.16:21
morriprobabyl because your work machine can't display unity16:21
coldboot|homeHow fortunate.16:21
ikoniacoldboot|home: it is forced because it is the only desktop - the gnome 2 interface or "gnome classic" is dead to ubuntu16:21
inhyeoggimwhat is your favorite movie player on Ubuntu?16:21
zagibuif Unity wasn't forced on update, noone would use it16:21
ikonia!best | inhyeoggim16:22
ubottuinhyeoggim: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.16:22
coldboot|homeYou could present users with a screen allowing them to choose.16:22
zagibumy point still stands16:22
morriyou can choose at the login screen can't you?16:22
ikoniacoldboot|home: not if ubuntus plan is to remove gnome classic16:22

mikael_thanks :-)16:26
Polahdddbmt_, sounds like you have an improper burn or an incomplete ISO then.16:26
coldboot|homeikonia: I think a compromise would be to present the user with a suggestion that they try the new Unity desktop, like Gmail does with their new interface. When enough people switch to the new interface, you decide that it's good enough to push to everyone.16:26
ikoniacoldboot|home: there isn't a compromise, perhaps I'm not making myself clear16:27
ikoniacoldboot|home: ubuntu has dropped gnome-classic - it doesn't want you to use it, to it will not offer you the option after 11.10 as it will not exist16:27

dddbmt_Polah, okay - thank you for your time! (Now I need to wait untill tomorrow :/ )16:27
coldboot|homeikonia: Right, so I'm saying that is a mistake, and it should have been presented to users in previous releases to get people to actually use it.16:28
ikoniacoldboot|home: you may think it's a mistake, canonical who develop ubuntu don't,16:28
JemtI'm pretty Sure Gnome will still be available - at least as an additional install16:28
Polahcoldboot|home, like ikonia said, it was presented in 11.0416:29
ikoniaJemt: it's not in main anymore which is what canonical support16:29

Jemtgeekbri: Exactly :)16:30

MyrttiI know this discussion over Unity and the roll out schedule of it is very interesting, but could you please take it elsewhere - it's not exactly on topic here. #ubuntu-offtopic has been quiet for a few moments now...16:31
coldboot|homeSo that the upgrade is always optional.16:31
ikoniacoldboot|home: sorry to have to explain this again, the decision has been take, ubuntu is dropping gnome desktop, that decision is taken, it's over, you now have a choice of using unity, or something else16:32
CarlFKMyrtti: ikonia - thanks.  that's the one.16:32
coldboot|homeI'm just saying that decision was foolish.16:32
vachoguys how do I switch to sudo? su??16:32

coldboot|homeedbian: Yeah I left Debian because nothing got better.16:54
nyraghuOops, sorry about all those line breaks; anyway, I hope the question is clear.16:54
edbiandr_willis: yeah16:55
edbiancoldboot|home: haha :)16:55
edbiannyraghu: did you check the driver you compiled is actually being used?16:55
kingofswordshow do i get wine 1.3.25 to work with pulseaudio16:56
filo1234Hi all, guys there is some pretty explanation about this? http://pastebin.com/xYQf8y8G16:56
BluesKajkingofswords, for a game ?16:56
organikscould somone help me out with this?16:57
organiksi dont have a patch cmd16:57
kingofswordsi read there were pulse driver for wine in a ppa or s'thing but cant find them16:57
edbianfilo1234: gnome likes to insist you have some browser installed16:57
nyraghuedbian: lsmod | grep rtl shows rtl8192ce 127492 0, so it looks like it is being used.16:57
edbiannyraghu: then perhaps that driver just doesn't work16:58
BluesKajkingofswords, does the game have any audio or media configurations , like linking to an audio device ?16:58
filo1234edbian: :-/ gnome is freaky16:59
edbianfilo1234: yes16:59
kingofswordsBluesKaj, i dont really understand what u mean....its not connected to any audio device thou16:59
filo1234so I obbligated to have a browser16:59
nyraghuedbian: perhaps.  I was hoping if there were any alternative ways/drivers.16:59
Kirejiikonia: thanks, I just submitted a bug report on launchpad17:00
edbiannyraghu: what card do you use?17:00
kingofswordsBluesKaj, should i uninstall wine 1.3.25 and install a ppa ver of 1.3.26?17:00
filo1234edbian: kde too...have nonsense17:00
BluesKajkingofswords, for example , are there options like choosing audio settings in the game17:01
edbianfilo1234: yes, haha17:01
nyraghuedbian: Realtek RTL8188CE.17:01
edbianfilo1234: A browser is an important app on the desktop17:01
kingofswordsBluesKaj, no there isnt17:01
BluesKajkingofswords, bummer17:01
kingofswordsthe sound works when i disable pulse but if i do anything included changing volume it stops17:01
t1m310rdis there a way to map multiple folders from one volume into other folders in another volume17:02
delacrhizmoe: yes, that seems to work, althoug it seems that xsane wants to scan each area separately rather than scanning once and then dividing the large image to smaller sections. bit more harsh for the scanner but might suffice. thanks!17:02
filo1234edbian: yeah but I'll like to use what I want! :D like opera, and don't have cromium or firefox too....or rekonk or konqueror17:03
edbiannyraghu: This site: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/rtl819x?highlight=%28RTL8188CE%29 says your driver is correct for your card.  sudo iwlist scan   ?17:03
edbianfilo1234: Mm, I'm pretty sure you can remove all drivers.  I'm just not sure how.17:03
edbianfilo1234: is opera in the rpeos?17:03
filo1234edbian: nope was only an example...17:03
edbianfilo1234: a-ha17:04
filo1234edbian: change my example with lynx :p17:04
edbianfilo1234: :)17:04
faLUCEhi. I just installed ubuntu with a live cd on a acer old netbook,. I chosed to mantain windows vista. All the installation was OK, but after booting grub doesn't show and windows always starts. How can I solve?17:04
organikscould somone help me out with this , http://wiki.winehq.org/USB?17:04
rhizmoedelac: ah, well that's what my 5min of googling turned up :) could be better done in postprocessing17:05
filo1234edbian: OMG http://pastebin.com/VvfjtBKA17:05
edbianfilo1234: that's... wrong17:05
ravenconnected to ssh share folder via places, connect to... - where is this connection linked in the file system?17:06
nyraghuedbian: iwlist scan gives lot of output, and lists all the 4 wireless switches that are accessible to me.17:06
Piciraven: Under ~/.gvfs17:06
edbiannyraghu: the network card is working17:06
edbiannyraghu: :)17:06
filo1234edbian: nope that's crazy IMHO17:06
edbianfilo1234: yes17:06
ravenPici, tnx17:06
rakathandoes anyone here have experience working with hostapd?17:08
delacrhizmoe: might be. do you know any image prosessing programs that are able to auto-crop and save large images to several smaller ones?17:08
sosaitedCan someone help me with setting up SSH with key authentication? I am confused between where to run ssh-keygen and ssh-copy-id.17:10
rhizmoedelac: "multi crop" is the search term i used17:10
sosaitedI ran ssh-keygen on my client computer, as stated by the guide on community pages (The computer I will be connected FROM, TO my server/main pc)17:11
rhizmoesosaited: i've never used ssh-copy-id for that stuff17:11
Picidelac: imagemagick17:11
sosaitedrhizmoe, I should have run ssh-keygen -t rsa -b4096 " etc on which computer?17:11
Picidelac: via the 'convert' or 'mogrify' binaries, See http://www.imagemagick.org/script/index.php for documentation, as it is very powerful.17:12
oCeansosaited: you got the first part correct. Now use ssh-copy-id on that same machine, to copy the id file to your remote server17:12
WCwarrioranyone: i know linux "should" be just about virus free from the net; however, is there software, ie. avg, spybot, malware bytes, etc. that is available for ubuntu 11.0417:12
rakathanWCwarrior: look up ClamAV17:12
escottsosaited, doesnt matter where you run it, but generally you would run it on the client machine so that if the client is compromised other clients dont have to get a new key from the server17:12
sosaitedoCean, By "remote" server. You mean the server, or the client, FROM WHICH I will be connecting to my pc?17:12
WCwarriorrakathan: k thanks. anything else as well?>17:13
rakathanWCwarrior: not that I know of...common sense is my best defense :P17:13
escottsosaited, so if A,B,C will connect to D then A,B,C each run ssh-keygen and then ssh-copy-id username@D17:13
oCeansosaited: on your client, from which you will be ssh'ing, run ssh-copy-id user@server17:13
sosaitedescott, Ok. I did run it on the client. but now my client has 4096 bit key. and server has 2048 bit17:13
escottsosaited, and if A is compromised then the line corresponding to A in D's .ssh/authorized_keys is removed17:13
sosaitedoCean, I already did that. It said "No identities found";17:14
organikscould someone help me with getting wine to see a usb device17:14
Piciescott: or copy the public and private key pair to each of those, there may not need to be a different keyfile created for each17:14
WCwarriorrakathan: thanks.17:14
rhizmoeno. you want one key that you copy your one private key to each of your potential source accounts, with the pub key going to each of the destination accounts17:14
nyraghuedbian: yes, it's working in the sense that it recognizes the switches, etc, but it is not connecting to them, even though i don't need authentication for  them.  network manager takes a few minutes trying to connect, and then gives up saying "wireless network disconnected".  Should I try ndiswrapper?17:14
oCeansosaited: ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub user@server17:14
sosaitedescott, , Got it.17:14
rhizmoetypically i try to choose just one "home base" where the priv key lies and that i connect to all other machines from.17:14
escottPici, but if you do that and A is compromised then everyone has to get a new key. if each has its own key then only D would be a critical point of failure17:15
Piciescott: Aye, you need to weigh your options :)17:15
intraderAnyone, elinks text terminal connects properly to network printer hosted by cups `sudo elinks` on a mac. The elinks program is able to print a test page; administration gives 403 error. However, the 'Applications->System->Printing applet is not able to locate the printer and connect. I have found nothing helpful in Google.17:15
Eryn_1983_FLok now i feel  really dumb, can somebody tell me how to  call  I guess network manager from the cli and connect to some wifi?17:16
Piciintrader: On a mac? What does that have to do with Ubuntu?17:16
DebiansArmyPici: Can't you have the system to reissue a new key after a certain number of days???17:17
intraderPici, the mac hosts the CUPS server. I want to print from ubuntu.17:17
neguebahey folks, don't know if the problem happens just for me but in ubuntu 11.04 the drivers atl1c and ath9k don't work at the same time... the system always happens to freezes at the splash screen... to get the system work i need to first disable my wireless card and then rmmod any of the drivers17:17
escottsosaited, in my network every computer has every other compu
