nlsthzn-workwell I would imagine that if -r was a valid option it would be mentioned there...00:02
bookpagenlsthzn-work: that's why I checked there, and that's why I asked if there was an option'like' -r for scp. I guess I'll just work around it then00:05

geth022I am having a hard time connecting to my wireless internet through my Ubuntu OS. Am i on the right channel for this?01:18
nlsthzn-workgeth022: you are... might take a while for a guru to step up and assist you so please be patient (I am a bit up and down at work so I will rather not attempt half heartedly)01:20
philipballewgeth022, i can try. whats your problem01:22
geth022okee, it is simply not reading that there is indeed a wireless network01:22
geth022I am currently connected to said network now,01:22
geth022my mom's computer is doing fine, i  don't quite understand what the problem is01:23
philipballewso your moms computer connects, but yours does not?01:23
philipballewwhats the difference between yours and hers?01:24
geth022Yes, my desktop is connected locally to the modem/router/thing via ethernet, whilst my mothers (Windows 7) is wirelessly connected to the internet01:24
geth022desktop is Windows XP01:25
coalwaterhello philipballew ,geth02201:25
geth022hey dere!01:25
coalwaterso what's up01:25
philipballewokay. do you have your wireless card internally or via a say usb stick?01:26
philipballewcoalwater, his wifi wont see any networks01:26
geth022Wireless internet is being recognized on alll computers, operating systems except for Ubuntu... it is a laptop, its internal01:26
philipballewaltight. lets get to the bottom of this01:27
coalwaterdid u check the wireless guide the ubot has?01:27
coalwaterit's a wireless problem? or internet in general?01:27
philipballewgeth022, theres not a wifi switch on your laptop for a on and off function correct?01:28
geth022correct Phil, as for Coal, all other computers are doing fine with it, i had my laptop working fine on the internet with windows 7, but only on Ubuntu it doesn't worok01:29
coalwatereven by wire?01:29
philipballewget okay :) open a terminal01:29
geth022yeah :/ i tried local connection too01:30
geth022open a terminal? like command prompt?01:30
philipballewmaximize the terminal and type lspci -vvv01:30
coalwaterctrl+alt+t might open it for u01:30
philipballewyeah. but the terminal is much more powerful01:30
philipballewwhat version of ubuntu are you running01:30
geth022cool, soo typing it in now...01:31
coalwaterphilipballew: +1 to that lol01:31
philipballewthen copy and paste everything in the terminal to this site here01:31
geth022holy shit that's a long list...01:31
geth022ummmm, i'm on a different computer01:31
philipballewgeth022, it gives good info about your hardware inside your laptop :)01:31
geth022oooo, i see, well, how do you want me to communicate it to you guys?01:32
philipballewhum. connect your laptop via a cat5?01:32
philipballewdoes that work?01:32
geth022i've got Ubuntu 10.10 btws01:32
philipballewhow new is your laptop/01:33
geth022i don't know what any of that cat5 stuff means :((01:33
philipballewsay ethernet or wired connection?01:33
philipballewcan you hook it up that way01:33
geth022reasonably new, just short of coming standard with a webcam01:33
geth022no, i tried that01:33
geth022i'm new to OS01:34
philipballewit may be that the laptop is newer then the version of ubuntu therefor lacking the drivers for that model01:34
geth022*I'm new to OS's that aren't Windows lol01:34
geth022should i get the 11. 04 version then?01:34
coalwaterit can't be  just an ip conflict, or dhcp problem?01:35
geth022no ideas bros...01:35
philipballewwell heres what i want you to do. remember when you installed ubuntu 10.10 you had the cd boot into the operating system and then you installed?01:35
philipballewcoalwater, it might easily be that01:35
philipballewdo that with 11.04 and see if your internet works01:36
philipballewalso do you have a flash drive?01:36
geth022damn, ok! I... kinda... don't know where it is...01:37
geth022i have a dvd burner i can use01:37
geth022How would i go about cleaning up the two OS's i'm not gonna use if it works?01:37
philipballewsure, just copy the output from the terminal onto a text file and then put it onto the compueter with internet. then put it on the site i said or if your unsude you can email it to me and ill do it01:38
philipballewthen after that try 11.0401:38
geth022ok!, i'll be back in a few minutes ok? i'mm go do that01:40
philipballewalright. i will probably be here. if not someone should01:41
coalwaterhey philipballew do u know how to mark several lines in nano to cut them01:43
nlsthzn-workcoalwater: if you have a mouse higglight them and copy paste using ctrl+shift+c and -v01:45
nlsthzn-workI think that should work...01:45

coalwateri'm currently using putty to my home pc01:46
E3D3When I open a new document in Dolpin file-manager it opens new instances of Emacs editor or Conkeror web-browser but I prefer to open them in the same/one window. How can I do that ?01:46
coalwaterE3D3: it's usually a preference, check dolpin prefrences, cause nautilus has that setting01:47
coalwatero wait, ur case is a lil different01:47
geth022oh hey, it's got like two hour estimated time to completion, so i might have to log on tomorrow01:48
coalwateri'm not sure how u can do that, because dolpin or any explorer just calls the excutable, and that opens a new window01:48
coalwaterhey geth022 , sorry u know i came lil later than when u started asking, so i want to ask something01:49
E3D3okay, i experimented with the arguments but I can't find info about it.01:49

coalwaterwhen u use the cable , does the info say that u have an ip ? or does it say that you're not conencted01:51
geth022it says i am not connected, no network connections01:51
coalwaterand there's an option in the network applet, it says enable networking, u make sure it's not disabled01:51

r4yhello, I have this error:11:33
r4y>./autogen.sh: 3: aclocal: not found11:33
r4yI am trying to install torrentzip11:34
bioterrorwhat's torrentzip?11:34
r4yIt for comressing mame roms.11:34
r4yAnd I am sure other things.11:35
bioterrorroms are binaries, does it compress them much?11:35
r4yI am not sure the answer, nor the question. I should find a link.11:36
geirhar4y: sudo apt-get install build-essential11:37
r4yYes I did that first.11:37
geirhainstall autoconf and automake too (I wasn't sure if build-essential covered those)11:38
r4yHere is a guide I am making:11:39
r4yDoes automake replace sudo make install?11:40
geirhar4y: ''./configure; make test'' -> ''./configure && make test''11:40
geirhaNo point in running make if configure fails11:40
r4yHere is what I have so far, but I haven't used what was suggested here yet:11:41
bioterrorr4y, did you notice my url, your torrentzip is outdated and no longer mainted, as the t7zip is a replacement for it11:42
r4yI am running Ubuntu 11.04 on VMware. I am sorry I will check it out thank you for the info.11:43
geirhar4y: Instead of saying cd /home/username/foo, say: cd ~/foo or cd "$HOME/foo"11:43
r4yGreat idea, thank you I will.11:44
r4yDoes the third one need quotes?11:45
geirhaAnother issue is that ~/Desktop is localized. On my system it's ~/Skrivebord11:45
geirhar4y: Preferably, yes. Whenever you have a $var or $(command) or `command`, you want it enclosed in double quotes... for good practice.11:46
geirhaHOME is unlikely to contain any shell syntax that could cause issues though.11:46
r4yWell, this guide is for Ubuntu users and if they costumized their Linux OS that much then they would know what to do11:46
r4yI need to go back and read. Thank you all for the info.11:47
geirhaIf you during the install of Ubuntu say you live in Spain and speak spanish, your desktop folder will be named with the spanish translation of the word Desktop.11:47
r4yWell I can't argue with you there, as you know more then I do on this subject11:49
r4ySo did configure fail?11:49
r4yThe outdated version of torrentzip worked for me the last time I tried it.11:51
geirhazlib's configure seemed to succeed11:51
r4yThank you for the help.11:51
r4yI bookmarked the newer version to share with other, so thank you bioterror for the link.11:52
r4yautomake was already installed, but I don't know what installed it, but that's that. I will try again now.11:57
geirhaaclocal is installed by either autoconf or automake, don't quite remember which.11:58
geirhaBut you generally need both anyway.11:58
geirhaLooks ok, I think you can disregard the warnings.11:59
r4yOK, next to go then, I'll be back right away12:00
r4yLooks good to me so far12:01
r4yThen next step they had was make12:02
r4ybut I have seen sudo make install before so I am unsure.12:02
r4yDo make I guess12:02
r4yI should be testing it I guess. I will look for the binary.12:04
r4ywhat was that command for finding a binary with a word?12:05
r4yIt will be trrntzip12:06
geirha''type trrntzip''12:06
r4yNot found, give me a little. I have text files laying around with this kind of info for future use.12:07
geirhaWell, once you do  sudo make install  it will install the binaries in /usr/local/bin, unless you specified a different destination with configure12:08
r4yOK, I will try that and see what happens12:08
geirhaOnce it's installed there, type should see it since /usr/local/bin should be in your PATH.12:08
r4yO yes:12:10
r4yI can't remember where I saved that command in a text file, but I am making note.12:11
r4yThank you very much for the help. Great job.12:11
geirhaSomeone might have told you to use a command called which12:11
geirhaIf so, delete that from your file and replace it with type12:11
geirhawhich is a highly non-standard, useless command that overcomplicates the simple task type does.12:12
r4yI made note of everything, except I didn't understand exactly what this meant: ”./configure; make test” -> ”./configure && make test”12:12
r4yI think you are right. It was the command which12:12
geirhacmd1; cmd2   cmd1 runs, and regardless of whether it failed or succeeded, cmd2 is run.12:12
geirhacmd1 && cmd2  cmd1 runs, and if, and only if, cmd1 suceeded, cmd2 is run.12:13
geirhamake is dependant on the configure script suceeded, so there's no point in trying to run it if configure didn't suceed.12:13
r4yI think I can understand what you just wrote in the last 3 sentences, but I need a sec to think.12:14
r4yO, I see12:14
geirhaSorry about all the typos :)12:15
r4yI am low on sleep. Thank you very much for the help. Like I said I will share the link bioterror share with me.12:15
r4yI make way more mistakes when I type. You should have seen all the mistakes I made this morning. I was thinking of banging my head against the wall, but that wouldn't help.12:16
r4yI want to make some notes on what you have told me.12:17
r4yMy first note:12:21
r4yWhen ”./configure; make test” is ran, first configure runs, and regardless of whether it failed or succeeded, make test is run.12:21
r4yWhen ”./configure && make test” is ran, first configure runs, and if, and only if, configure suceeded, make test is run.12:21
r4yI forgot to add the sentence you typed after that.12:22
geirhaThose two sentences are correct.12:23
r4yI will add the type command as part of my guide.12:23
r4yThank you for all the help.12:23
r4ySo regarding what you said: Instead of saying cd /home/username/foo, say: cd ~/foo or cd "$HOME/foo"12:29
r4yI think you said cd "$HOME/foo" was the better of the two.12:29
r4yYou said: HOME is unlikely to contain any shell syntax that could cause issues though.12:31
geirha~ expands to the value of the HOME variable, so either is good.12:32
geirhacd ~/foo is shorter so I'd go with that.12:33
holsteinwhen i use $HOME, it seems auto complete doesnt work as expected, which is a deal breaker for me12:33
geirhaIn scripts though, it is generally recommended to use $HOME instead of ~12:33
holsteini'll buy that... is that because its easier to see and read in the text geirha ?12:34
geirhaholstein: Yeah, that one has been discussed on the bug-bash list. It was introduced due to a change that fixed a different issue. Chet isn't sure how to "fix" it properly.12:35
geirhaholstein: Mainly because tilde expansion is a bit more magical than parameter expansion.12:35
holsteingood to know12:35
geirhaVAR=~/foo  # here, ~ gets expanded to your homedir12:36
geirhaexport VAR=~/foo  # here it doesn't.12:36
geirhaerr, well, in bash it will also in the case of export, as a special case, but not in POSIX sh.12:36
geirhaSo using "$HOME" generally causes less confusion12:37
r4yI made some notes, but I am not at you level guys. Have fun and thank you for the help.12:39
r4yCool stuff, Take care.12:39
