j0hndoeMy laptop spec is 1.8 Ghz / 384 Mb RAM / 764 Mb SWAP, on certain occasion my CPU would reach 100% even though I have 1 to 3 open programs with around 200 Mb of RAM used. I think, maybe it has to be with swap, so I'm thinking of reducing it to 128 Mb, Can I just do that thru Gparted, wont it mess up my system?00:00
Lintstill who can help me troubleshoot boot issue?00:00
j0hndoewhat is your problem Lint00:00
antnashsraue, tried it......     for i in `find . -name Only*`; do mv $1 `echo $1 | sed -e "s,Only Fools ,,"`; done00:00
Lintit hangs somewhere in init00:00
antnashNo luck00:01
antnashsaid I'm using mv wrong00:01
urlin2uj0hndoe, reducing the swap size will not change that change the swappiness.00:01
Lintantnash, filenames have spaces?00:01
h00kantnash: I'd recommend #bash for that00:01
srauereplace $1 with $i00:01
j0hndoeurlin2u, so its safe to reduce the size of swap, is that what you're saying?00:01
antnashyup, saw that right before you said it00:02
qinantnash: No find, nasted loop:  for i in {1..8}; do for y in {1..12}; do  echo season$i episode$y; done; done;00:02
clemenstimplerj0hndoe, reducing the size of swap does not minimise the frequency of swapping00:03
urlin2uj0hndoe, it will not fix the problem, you v=can reduce it you see what I'm saying, this will though to some extent.  http://dammuozz.selfip.com/?p=30800:03
j0hndoeclemenstimpler, but i read somewhere the more size of swap is the more work cpu does making it lag.. is that true?00:04
urlin2uj0hndoe, cpu use, and ram use and the swap area are conneted to some extent but high cpu is just that.00:04
urlin2uswap is for when the ram gets to a certain use j0hndoe00:05
j0hndoeurlin2u, im trying to edit swap it wont let me delete or shrink or something00:05
clemenstimplerj0hndoe, general advice: try to diagnose your problem before you copy solutions from the web00:05
urlin2uj0hndoe, right click then shut off, that will do you no good though.00:06
LintI'm not exactly find reinstalling OS each two weeks funny or productive00:06
j0hndoeurlin2u, no good as in, will it mess up my system?00:06
urlin2uj0hndoe, it wont fix the problem you describe.00:07
j0hndoeLink, you got problem with bootloader yes?00:07
Lintnope, with init00:07
wildbatjohndoe, you will have a slower system or even hangs if you don't have enough memory ( RAM+ SWAP), shrinking do you no good at all ~00:08

Lycai know there is, but im very new to the linux scene. im still trying to figure it out00:31
clemenstimplerLyca, you find them by opening synaptic and entering 'torrent' in the search box00:31
clemenstimplerthen you google the single programs and form an opinion00:31
Dr_WillisLyca:  theres even uTorrent ported to linux (web interface only, 32bit only)00:31
Lycaim considering either xubuntu or lubuntu, but im wondering if there would be a disadvantage if i got lubuntu as compared to xubuntu00:31
Dr_WillisLyca:  i tend to use qbittorrent. the exact ubuntu variant wont matter much.00:31
Dr_WillisLyca:  if you have a low end system. try lubuntu first00:32
th0rLyca: you will find lxde lighter than xfce, but you will find xfce more configurable and maybe a little more powerful00:32
EyePulpwhen I run "sudo service foo start" where can I look to see why it fails?00:32
clemenstimplerLyca, some programs are tied to particular environments: if you install ktorrent on a lubuntu install, it will draw in many dependent packages00:32
Lycathis is the computer im running it on, if you guys wouldnt mind checking out the specs00:32
aaasjo-erlend: the problem with synergy is that you cant move windows between monitors hopefully you don't find it annoying like i did00:33
jo-erlendaaas, that would be cool. But that's not something I need.00:33
th0rLyca: I used to do system performance analysis for work. I think you will find xfce and lxde pretty close as far as utilization of system resources. A more important decision will probably be which software you choose to use with it00:33

mldanyone know why wvdialer says "no carrier" (cdma mini-pci-express card) is there a way to debug that?01:12
atdprhsurlin2u, is it because of the 0 bytes that my disk space became?01:12
th0rhenry-: /dev/sdb. Type 'mount' in the terminal and see if /dev/sdb is mounted somewhere. If not you should be able to mount it01:13
urlin2uatdprhs, I only know how to push the button and wait.01:13
atdprhsurlin2u, is it possible to give "/" more free space from "home", I'm not technically using it yet01:13
urlin2uatdprhs, I never wipe the whole free space, it might have froze01:13
urlin2uatdprhs, you have a seperate home?01:14
henry-"mount sdb" "mount sdb1" won't work01:14
henry-"can't find"!01:14
urlin2uhenry-, /dev/sdxX01:14
atdprhsit was 387 MB, when I started the bleach bit to start cleaning, it killed the free space completely01:15
th0rhenry-: try mount /dev/sdb, but I think you will have to create a  mount point (a simple folder) and then use a full mount command.01:16
henry-what's the syntax for the full mount command?01:17
atdprhsurlin2u, I do have a seperate home01:17
th0rhenry-: assuming the simple command doesn't work. Create a folder in your home (mkdir /home/username/tempmnt). Then issue this command 'mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /home/username/tempmnt....put your username in both commands01:17
GusI need some help guys!01:18
henry-don't we all Gus ;D01:18
GusHow can I get my HDD back to NTFS on Ubuntu?01:18
hydrozenHi. I have an EC2 small instance running Lucid, and it's reporting high average loads but the cpu seems idle most of the time… is it possible that it's reporting false data?01:18
WHAT_UPI don't know where to ask this, but what would be the correct way to make my /home partition change from primary to logical?01:18
urlin2uatdprhs, you would I think change the partitions in gparted, seems like a waste though, unless it is really messed up.01:18
th0rhenry-: and you might need /dev/sdb1 instead of /dev/sdb01:18
henry-henry@main:~$ sudo mount /dev/sdb /home/samsungmount01:19
henry-mount: mount point /home/samsungmount does not exist01:19
hydrozenthe machine feels pretty responsive too… doesnt feel slow01:19
geth022I am having a hard time connecting to my wireless internet through my Ubuntu OS. Am i on the right channel for this?01:19
Gus How can I get my HDD back to NTFS on Ubuntu? It is FAT32 right now!01:19
th0rhenry-: you need to create the mountpoint.....if your username is 'henry' then mkdir /home/henry/tempmnt01:19
urlin2uGus, you want the info on it now/01:20
urlin2uGus, you will need to pull it off to change.01:20
henry-it exists th0r01:20
GusI need to make the HDD NTFS01:20
th0rhenry-: then you should be able to use it in the mount command01:20
GusI don't have Windows on the PC just Ubuntu01:21
GusSo I want to know how to make it NTFS01:21
geth022I know i have the correct setup for the actual internet modem thing, it works fine for this computer right here, but it is not registering it in ubuntu B///01:21
henry-now it claims that neither sdb or sdb1 exist01:21
henry-could it be the phone's programming?01:21

th0rGus: http://maketecheasier.com/how-to-reformat-an-external-hard-drive-to-ntfs-format-in-ubuntu-hardy/2008/09/2901:21
henry-you'll need to repartition the drive Gus01:22
mecablazeI am trying to get a cron job to work. I have it running under root (sudo crontab -e). The command is a python script. It runs fine when I run it through the terminal, but it errors out when it runs through the cron job (via /var/log/syslog)01:22
GusThis will work on a internal correct?01:22
henry-oh, an external drive01:22
henry-if you change the filesystem type it will erase all data! Gus01:22
henry-so back up your data01:22
th0rhenry-: it appears from the pastebin that it is recognized as /dev/sdb, so that command should work. But I have never worked with a phone...so there may be something else involved01:23
GusOk, so how do I make my internal HDD NTFS?01:23
urlin2uGus, using that ink will wipe the info in formatting a ntfs01:23
GusEven Internal?01:23
atdprhsurlin2u, won't I need to change the configuration of the home folder to be located on the /01:24
urlin2uGus, yes you have to remove the data to be saved then make a NTFS then reoad it01:24
henry-I have a hunch that it's coded in the phones software to only allow their software to access the phone th0r01:24
GusHow? That shows external01:24
urlin2uatdprhs, not really an area of expertse for me I have only one partition per install.01:25

phrostbiteIs there a way in firefox to open multiple tabs when the application is opened?01:26
urlin2uGus, in windows I think you can convert look on the web01:26
pietro10specifically the modal dialog box will not respond to button presses01:26
calwigHorizEdgeScroll was set to 0 instead of being set to 1 for some reason. So I just set it to 1 and it worked. Scroll mouse working.01:26

hidensoftpietro10: how i can establish a VPN connection ? i make it , but i don't know how i can do this01:31
pietro10hidensoft: hm. So you created a VPN connection but you don't know how to connect to it?01:32
hidensoftvpn connection menu in network manager applet just have 2 submenu , configure vpn and disconnect vpn01:32

ubottuprezident: 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.01:36

maaheswithout a PWM module, how can I force acpi to run my fan at 100%? There is fan control going on for some reason, but fancontrol told me I had no PWM modules01:46
urlin2uGus,  backup what's there deleta and mae antfs01:46
Gus_How do I delete?01:46
gogetaGus_: RIGHT CLICK DELETE01:47
Dr_Willisbure4st037:  make sure there is a /media/cdrom directory?01:47
gogetaGus_: lol dam capslock01:47
hydrozenis it possible that Lucid doesnt report correct average load on EC2? I'm getting average load between 2-4 while the cpu seems to be idle. Doesnt make sense… and the machine feels responsive.01:47
Gus_Won't let me select it01:47
bure4st037Dr_Willis, I made one and mounted the .iso in it01:47
Dr_Willisbure4st037:  but for burning an iso file.. im not sure why you need to do that.01:47
urlin2uGus, right click the swap then swap off then right click it and delete then sda1 delete then sda 2delete01:47
gogetaGus_: you would need to do it on the live cd01:47
Dr_Willisbure4st037:  oh. you are trying to  fake it out. :)01:47
bure4st037still didn't work, and burning is not an option01:47
Gus_On the live CD?01:48
Dr_Williscould be its trying to remount it or somthing bure4st037  ive never used aptoncd01:48
urlin2uGus, yes on a live cd of course01:48
gogetaGus_: yea you cant reformat a drive in use01:48
Gus_How do I do that?01:48
Dr_Willisgogeta:  well :) you can.. but its not nice.. heh...01:48
urlin2uGus, are you just trying to install windows?01:48
Gus_Yes, but my HDD needs to be NTFS and it isn't right now01:49
gogetaGus_: windows can do it01:49
Gus_I don't have windows on it right now01:49
urlin2uGus, windows will make the NTFS for you.01:49
Dr_WillisGus_:  windows installer disk can do it. or perhaps try the gparted live cd. that way nothing is in use.01:49
Gus_Windows installer won;t01:49
Gus_It fails01:49
=== jeremy is now known as Guest38002
Gus_It says it can't do it01:50
Dr_Willisso the core of the issue is windows installer failing.. :) and you are trying to work around it.01:50
Gus_And restarts my PC01:50
gogetaGus_: in the installer when it shows the partations slect delete on all of them01:50
urlin2uGus, I doubt that but use a live ubuntucd or gparted cd01:50
pietro10k how about this01:50
Gus_It doesn't get that far01:50
pietro10if I force quit Ubuntu Software Center in this situation, will Iscrew up my pakcage database?01:50
Gus_It says loading installer folders and then says failed01:50
gogetaGus_: i think for 7 you have to slect advanced when it ask where to install01:50
xrdodrxcalwig, you there?01:50
urlin2uGus_, if it does not get that far I doun=bt it will instal, kinda important part.01:51
bure4st037pietro10, if it's running and you close APT, it will fuck up your system01:51
Gus_I know01:51
Gus_That's why I need it to be NTS01:51
Gus_That is why I am here01:51
xrdodrx!language | bure4st03701:51
ubottubure4st037: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family-friendly, polite, and professional.01:51
Dr_WillisGus_:  so to make a ntfs. you could use gparted (or other live cds) or ask in #windows about doing it via a windows disk of some kind.01:51
Dr_WillisGus_:  or gparted + the ntfsprogs on ubuntu. if the disk/partitions are not in use.01:51
Gus_How do I get them not in use?01:52
Dr_Willisgparted requires ntfsprogs installed to allow messing with ntfs.01:52
henry-well hot damn th0r01:52
Gus_I'm not good with Ubuntu01:52
henry-it's working01:52
henry-thanks man01:52
gogetaGus_: in windows when it ask what hdd to install on slect advanced it will bring up partations delete all of them then  on the empty tell windows to install there01:52
henry-you gain 30 wizard points01:52
Dr_WillisGus_:  unmount them.. which will be hard to do if you are trying to mess with your / partition.. which is why i mention the live cd's01:52
Gus_Be back later01:52
th0rhenry-: in all fairness they should go to google <smile>01:52
Dr_WillisGoogle is a level 10000000 wizzard.01:53
gogetaDr_Willis: what happond to over 900001:53
th0rhenry-: you can blacklist that module so it doesn't give you problems after reboot01:53
henry-I've been trying to google the problem for quite some time now th0r :P01:54
henry-I just removed the thing01:54
henry-should be enough, right?01:54
Lintare there some gui tools for unattended installation?01:54
th0rhenry-: an advantage of knowing nothing....I got real good at the searches01:54
th0rhenry-: that module will reload at reboot....put the module name in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and it won't load again01:55
henry-you mean blacklist.conf, right?01:56
th0rhenry-: I think so. I haven't used it in a while...would need to go back to google <smile>01:57
th0rhenry-: yeah...just looked...it is blacklist.conf01:57
henry-alrighty then!01:58
WarOpI'm installing packages onto another machine using packages previous downloaded already, and on the other machine after i installed about half its saying "Package is missing final newline"02:03

mjreedIf I were setting up a real server, it'd be a VM in someone's data center. :)02:14
KM0201still doesn't make sense02:14
mjreedOK.  Can we stipulate that I'm an idiot because noone in their right mind would ever do such a stupid thing as set up a server on wifi, and move on?  I would still like to be able to set the box up without waiting for the wire runs.02:15

WarOPComputer Rebooted so what does it mean when it says "Package is missing Final newline02:16
mjreedThanks, thund3r god.  I appreciate the support.  Any tips on where to look next?  Most of the stuff I found online either requires software that I can't find, or only works if the card shows up in /proc...02:17
mjreedthe old ath_pci driver is not showing up; the ath9k driver is there in lsmod..02:17
th0rmjreed:  might the server have a hardware switch that is being misread?02:17
WarOPGoogled & found to change /var/lib/dpkg/info > /var/lib/dpkg/info.old02:17
WarOPwhich it worked to install the package that was saying Missing final newline02:17
mjreednah, it's not a laptop and the wifi is an add-on card with no switch,02:18
Jordan_Umjreed: You should be able to configure it with /etc/network/interfaces and ifup/ifdown, or use nm-cli if you really want network-manager. But it no showing up in /proc/net/wireless is concerning. I'm pretty sure network-manager won't help fix that.02:18
WarOPbut what trying to install updated packages and it's like it doesnt see the existing packages already installed02:18
mjreedyeah, i'm trying to get from lshw and lspci to /proc.  I don't know what the missing piece of the puzzle is there.02:18

mjreedhuh.  added the config to /etc/network/interfaces and rebooted and it worked.02:43
mjreedThanks for the assist, Jordan_U and th0r.02:44
JasonnSuperdave321: lol, other than read the manual, not really. Every router is different... Make sure you are forwarding it, and not triggering it, and make sure you are forwarding the right port to the right server.02:44
Jordan_Umjreed: You're welcome.02:44
Superdave321Jasonn: ok, Thanks. Is there anything in the server I could check? i've set it up on a non-standard port...02:45

san_Hi,  a week I cannot connect to the ssh server I used to be able to connect before I moved to another app, always getting the error  port 22: No route to host, which is strange since my collegues can connect from outside...Any thought or possible test to pinpoint the problemÉ thanks03:14
alazare619kk ill try that parker thanks for the idea03:14
ParkerRWell theres more03:15
Flannelalazare619: Alright.  Well, it means you aren't able to currently use sudo.  Could be a variety of reasons.  You'll need to ask in #debian (try #debian on oftc, thats the primary channel).  If it were Ubuntu, I'd say you likely removed yourself from the admin group, but that's not how debian does things.03:15
ParkerRFlannel, no I had this confused with debian its my fault for the confusion03:15
Superdave321Thelmaria: When I try to connect, it actually prints "ssh: connect to host {address} port {port #}: connection refused."03:15

FlannelParkerR: No worries.03:16
alazare619all over 3g love android phones03:16
ParkerRFlannel, but yeah Ubuntu should make the user able to use sudo from the get go03:16
ThelmariaSuperdave321: Check /var/log/auth.log - that'll tell you if the ssh server recieves the request (ie, port forwarding is working).03:16
alazare619only worry i didnt base it off ubuntu was cause there is no equal on ubuntu to liquorix kernel03:17
FlannelParkerR: Well, he could have removed himself from the admin group accidentally.03:17

dzeremis1Hi everybody. I have what I think might be a simple question. I have a Gateway laptop that is five years old. It has an internal wifi card. Some time ago, I had a newer PC that did not have wifi at all and bought a CISCO Linksys AE1000 card. It works via USB and is much better wireless technology. I think I've installed the thing. My computer definitely sees it with lsusb. But I'm wondering how to put it in use. It would be a lot better th03:30
dzeremis1an the internal wireless card.03:30
Book_Jordan_U: No, this is not.. I've tried booting up w/ a liveCD and the bootup process is halted as well03:31

Duesentriebhi all. i have a problem with the unity desktop. basically, it fails to load on login. my problem is pretty much exactly the one described here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/34622/faulty-unity-session/5832306:34
Pirschlinuxrealm: if I had 10.04 iso, I'd just go back to that.06:34
Duesentriebany idea how to reset unity so i can use it again?06:34
linuxrealmPirsch: lspci and look for what card you have06:34

linuxrealmunix/linux is very well documented, and Howtos are all over help.ubuntu.com. you will be amazed at how simple to complex tasks are step by step. you will have no problems. its all about keyword searching though, so for your issue, it would be, user mount usb drive, something like that06:50

anth0nyItBlends, you know what?  I think I found it, it was Cardapio06:53
linuxrealmglisstech: there are lots of programs you may find interesting that are not maintained or support by ubuntu update, therefore, errata is important to read when upgrading anything, what was fixed, what is still broken or is not mentioned. its pretty serious do upgrades. however, as you progress, you will see what you can and should not upgrade.06:53

Guest3679is there any one who can guide me set samab on ubuntu I am new to this07:21
PythonPupMACscr.  Sure, there should be a partition table.  The virtual machine sees a disk and partitions just like a real machine.  At least, in VirtualBox they do.  I expect XEN is the same.07:21

Guest3679pythonPup shall i uninstall samba4 ?07:26
Guest3679PythonPup !!and this is new thing do u mean to say ntfs don't support for samba07:27
PythonPupI would not trust Linux with a NTFS disk for more than trivial writes.  It is great for reading.  NTFS is not documented well.07:27
PythonPupGuest3679, samba and ntfs are separate issues.  Anything the system can read and write reliably, samba can share.  NTFS under Linux is just not a good idea07:28
rectec794613PythonPup: Do you know anything about uTouch or know what channel I can go to to get support?07:28

rectec794613PythonPup: It's a multitouch trackpad gesture recognition tool for Ubuntu. Well I'll ask around as I see you have a lot of work to do :)07:30
PythonPupGuest3679, Any normal Linux filesystem.  I usually talk over with people how they plan to use their system before we pick a filesystem.  I suppose if I had to pick one, I'd go with XFS.  Certainly not ext3 or 4.07:30

PythonPupJokesOnYou77, NTFS filesystems can be read fine in Linux.  I use Ubuntu to recover data off of them with no problem.  A little writing is even ok.  But a lot of writing tends to lead to corrupted NTFS volumes in my experience.  I would never set one up that way.07:33

linuxrealmi think PythonPup meant on other linux distros not ubuntu, currently ubuntu defaults to ext4. if your mounting a diff fs, then thats a diff thing07:34
PythonPupGuest3679, Only root can make a filesystem, generally.  You need to do that as sudo.  And, be very careful to specify the right partition.07:35

PythonPupGuest3679, so the command you should issue is something like   mkfs -t xfs /dev/sdb107:38
rectec794613linuxrealm: I think the hardware is fine, I ran evtest on event7, and found out that that was the trackpad07:38

linuxrealmPythonPup: i use xfs on bsd. mounting no problem. but linux, i havent tried or had the need to yet, let alone know the differences lol07:40
linuxrealmi figure the maintainers chose the fs for a reason per distro07:40
PythonPuplinuxrealm, Most people won't see a problem with ext3 or 4.  I understand that.  I have seen major problems with either.  I also consider both to be unfinished hacks.  But, I think the filesystem discussion may be deemed off topic here.07:40

Guest3679PythonPup !! I removed samba4 and Instilling samba only is it ok08:01
LintTank852, use virtual machine instead08:01
PythonPupGuest3679, No, that's not next.  Next we add the filesystem to fstab so it will be there next boot.08:02
Tank852Lint: thats very slow isn't it?08:02
PythonPupGuest3679, Yes, uninstall samba4 and install samba08:02
PingvillerTank852: I would use openoffice, while writing, and then edit it before submitting it using a normal windows machine with office, or virtual machine as Lint said08:02

PythonPupGuest3679,   I would start with something like this.08:26
LintDuelisti, no, just extract the folder looking like 'somename-1.2.3'08:26
PythonPupGuest3679, you probably want to change the sharename, the netbios name, and the hosts allow.  But, you likely should put something in each of those.08:27
Guest3679PythonPup !! Ok08:27

LintDuelisti, then inspect it contents and see if 'configure' is present08:28

urlin2uDuelisti, I figured that would work looked correct.08:37

smwPythonPup, yeah, just saw the package network-manager-strongswan.08:39
Arthurcould somebody help me? the camera works well, I can take photos in the comp using cheese, but I can't record the voice08:40

PythonPupArthur, is it selected as the current input?  If not, try that and see if it records.08:48
Moshanatorsweener, the r in -ro means read-only08:48

* szal doesn't think there is a real-world difference.. @ sweener08:49
PythonPup Arthur, you may need to adjust the volume.08:49
=== RobinJ is now known as zz_RobinJ
PythonPupArthur, I don't have a camera.  Those are the settings I would look at.08:50
sweenerMoshanator thanks. I assume the -ro option would be the correct way then08:50
Moshanatorszal is right though, iso filesystems are read-only anyway you mount them08:50
Moshanatorbut yeah, you should know that when mounting anything else08:51
sweenerso I could just mount an iso with the command "mount loop foo.iso /media"08:52
wolfrichow come apt-get shows that a package is uninstalled (after i just did apt-get remove but dpkg -l | grep package shows it still being there.08:53

PythonPupwolfric, I'd start by using Synaptic and doing a completely remove.  Then, reinstall.  Waht is the package?08:56
wolfricPythonPup: jetty08:56
PythonPupsweb, a dremel tool is good.  Seriously, the only program I would use is SpinRite from Steve Gibson.08:57
swebPythonPup, what about dban ?08:59
PythonPupwolfric, I don't do javamuch at all.  There seems to be one config file.  That probably is recreated fine.  But, there is probably some relation to httpd.conf or similar and you will have to work that out by hand, I expect.08:59
SpiderFredhi I am using lynx in my terminal but it cant display some characters of my language(czech) and I am not sure what to do.08:59
wolfricPythonPup: that worked thanks. is there an equiv in apt-get? apt-get purge?09:00
PythonPupdban is a great tool for wiping disks.  It is not so great for testing a disk for bad sectors.09:00
PythonPupwolfric, yes, but I don't know it off hand.09:00

PingvillerGreetings! I'm having some problems with configuring the 000-default file for apache2, to get it to work with phpmyadmin as well as request ticket 4... http://pastebin.com/FMpnUHn9 please advice on how to make it properly configured09:39

agronholminsmod: anything more specific? has someone fixed their crash problems this way?09:40
agronholmstrange that I'm not even getting a core dump though I enabled them09:41
insmodagronholm: I have since 199509:41
PythonPupOh, do you want core dumps.  We can probably come up with neat ways to get those.09:41
voxicPingviller: your current config only allows connection to phpmyadmin from the localhost(the server itself)09:41
dc5alaPingviller, i recommend not using the default file, disable it via a2dissite and create a new one09:42
agronholmPythonPup: I can't understand what's happening09:42
jayzhello people09:42
agronholmthe app just quits09:42
ActionParsniphi jayz09:42
agronholmin fact it doesn't even seem to crash09:42
insmodagronholm: trust me -- or back it up then do it09:42
ActionParsnipagronholm: what if you launch it from terminal?09:42
agronholmI did09:42
StuhrIt seems that Python is pretty popular, but how is it compared to c++ or c#?09:42
jayzi have some doubts ..could u help me out..?09:42
agronholmno messages, no core dump, no nothing09:42
ActionParsnipStuhr: I'd ask in their respective channels09:42
voxicStuhr: Python is much more simple09:43
ActionParsnipagronholm: is there a verbose output option?09:43
insmodagronholm: any way that's how  -- good luck09:43
agronholmActionParsnip: in thunderbird?09:43
PythonPupagronholm, I have not been following your problem well. And, I'll be leaving soon.  An app quiting could be an app problem.  Or, it could be a motherboard problem, Or a memory problem, or a hard disk problem.09:43

jayz@action.. hello?09:45
Guest3679PythonPup!! any solution ?09:45
ActionParsnipjayz: are you having issues with java?09:45
PythonPupGuest3679, good.  Now, save that config file(/etc/samba/smb.conf)  Start experimenting from there with your other requirements.  I believe you had some odd thing about copying the files in a way they could not be deleted by the user.(Or was that someone else?)  Anyway, I have to quit and go home.09:45

jayzi installed  jre .. i have issues in installing the java plugin for firefox09:45
voxicPingviller: if you have the ip type Allow from
PythonPupGuest3679, solution to what?  You said you could create files.  That is the goal.09:46
ActionParsnipjayz: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/java; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin09:46
jayzi created the symbolic link but firefox doesn't load it..09:46
Guest3679PythonPup !! NOOOOO !! they can creat file and & folder But I should not allow to delete09:46
Pingvillervoxic: actually I'd like it to allow all, but where do I paste it? and is it still in the 000-default or the apache.conf for phpmyadmin?09:47
voxicGuest3679: use the creat_mask setting in smb.conf09:47
insmodjayz: your path is wrong09:47
jayzhow to copy from this chatroom?09:47
Guest3679PythonPup!! the whole IDEA was that09:47
PythonPupGuest3679, I can't stay to go through that part with you. See http://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/2001-October/030781.html09:47
voxicPingviller: it int the 000-default, change the line Allow from 127... to your network09:48
jayzok . . i'm new here.. tel me how to copy text from this chat screen?09:48
Guest3679voxic how to use that shall i copy smb.conf09:48

jpw1391for free?11:24

bundaidam022 ! this my smb.conf file http://pastebin.com/B2QSbaNz11:25
ActionParsnipjpw1391: if you run:  echo filename |  cut -d'.' -f2    it will give the file extension11:26
glebihanMBR_Rewritor, have a look at anonymous_enable and anon_root options (and maybe others) in https://security.appspot.com/vsftpd/vsftpd_conf.html11:26
ActionParsnipjpw1391: you can then put it in a variable like: FEXTENSION=`echo "$1" | cut -d'.' -f2`11:26
damo22bundai: at the bottom change the following: guest ok = no, force user = milap, create mask = 0644, directory mask = 164411:26
whoppergatorActionParsnip: infinite loops are bad practice, and that cut will fail on filenames with more than one period, no?11:27
jpw1391so this infinite look would always be running in the background?11:27
ActionParsnipwhoppergator: possibly, but it's a start, it can be refined11:27
ActionParsnipjpw1391: yes, much like a service. I'm sure you could make it more graceful11:28
whoppergatorActionParsnip: jpw1391: you should write a script that uses a grep match, then add it to cron with a reasonable update interval11:28
jpw1391Is there anyways to daemonize it so that I just does it upon a new file entering the parent folder11:28
theadmin!cron | jpw139111:28
ubottujpw1391: cron is a way to schedule execution of software/scripts. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CronHowto  -  There is also a decent Howto at http://www.tech-geeks.org/contrib/mdrone/cron&crontab-howto.htm11:28

theadminJoeR1: https://launchpad.net/gdm2setup11:29
whoppergatorjpw1391: right, i'm saying you couldn't daemonize it with a bash script. your best bet is a cron job11:29
bundaidamo22 you want me to restart pc or service smbd restart11:30
damo22bundai: service smbd restart11:30
JoeR1theadmin, Thank you I shall look immediately11:30
jpw1391alright but lsyncd would daemonize it right? if I were to go that route11:31

JoeR1ActionParsnip, 11.04, Xubuntu11:34
whoppergatorjpw1391: i think so. then you are basically tacking your script on to an existing daemon. apparently there is a nautilus-sync package for that too. Oh yeah, and nautilus-actions now that i think about it, which would be another way to trigger it11:35
jpw1391I use openbox...11:35
jpw1391and pcmanfm11:36

wouter_im getting into linux, but still getting used to the filesystem, as in, where to put my stuff. Now I am following a guide to build some code and it requires me to make a few directories in my build environment. It shows command like mkdir -p ~/bin  . now my question is: Where could / should be my build environment or where would you put yours?11:39
whoppergatorjpw1391: yeah lsyncd will definitely do it, and it ties into inotify, so it would be efficient. i didn't realize you were on openbox. well that's what i get for jumping in the middle of a conversation :P11:39

ActionParsnip!firewall | Lint11:41
ubottuLint: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Gufw (GNOME) and Guarddog (KDE Lucid and Maverick) also exist.11:41

jpw1391whoppergator no worries that's the first i've even said of it11:43
wouter_alright so that command is just a suggestion. I may as well make that ~/myproject/bin then, or would you advise me to keep it in home/bin ?11:43
auronandacedrag0nz: wouldn't it be easier to just have a persistant usb install11:43
ActionParsnipJoeR1: most things would be removed dude, a lot relies on python11:43
whoppergatorLint: yup it's off by default. since there are no open ports on a clean linux install, why would a firewall be necessary?11:43
simion314i never installed ubuntu on a Mac, is it so frioendly to Mac also? i mean i can do install and then dual boot? can it automaticaly resize the Mac partitions?11:43
drag0nzauronandace, you mean have it installed and run from USB?11:43
Lintwhoppergator, theres 6 opened ports, by default11:44
auronandacedrag0nz: yes, a persistant usb install would save your settings too11:44
JoeR1ActionParsnip, yes . . .and yet I would be able to rebuilt from a command line and do it the way I want11:44
mang0I need an email client that I can write a message in raw html. any ideas?11:44

whoppergatorLint: are there vulnerable services listening on those ports? i would also point out that you probably mean that there are 6 opened ports on ubuntu desktop. the server version and other distros have less or none11:44
damo22bundai: try this: add "valid user = milap" at the bottom of smb.conf and delete "public = yes" then do service smbd restart11:45
drag0nzauronandace, one last question, how much disk space does ubuntu 11.04 need?11:45
drag0nzis a 4gb stick good enough?11:45

GalvatronHi. In Ubuntu 11.04 (Classic GNOME, Compiz 0.8.6 from PPA) I have a problem with panel applets loading but frequently not appearing on the top panel (I must restart them to make them show up). If it matters, I'm using a custom kernel and 7300GT with the latest proprietary drivers.13:41
ikonia-remoteGalvatron: ask the PPA maintainer for help13:41
santanalkafoo, They are on a Windows 7 PC. How do I access it from my box ?13:41
GalvatronFirst I must determine where lies the problem13:41
ikonia-remoteGalvatron: and custom kernel + unsupported drivers + unsupported PPA = nightmare to support13:41
alkafooI doubt a window manager malfunctioning would have anything to do with icons from applets for a panel not showing up13:42
ikonia-remoteGalvatron: start reverting things, eg: stock kernel, stock drivers + PPA13:42
alkafoosantan: you need to set them up as shared on the Windows box13:42
santanalkafoo, They are shared, require no password and can be accessed from other Windows PC's on the network. How do I access them from Linux ?13:44

photonikonia-remote: sudo apt-get install linux-image-...14:18
photonGalvatron: it was the only .38 kernel available.14:18
valthyxikonia-remote, any idea?14:18
ikonia-remotephoton: that doesn't look like a 10.04 kernel14:18
ikonia-remotevalthyx: I missed part of the conversation can you hit it from the Windows machine and ssh in ok ?14:18
photonikonia-remote: it is not. it's a 11.04 kernel, but support for 11.04 should not run out in October, should it?14:18
ikonia-remotephoton: game over with support then14:19
ikonia-remotephoton: mixing packages from different repos will break your supportability14:19
valthyxikonia-remote, my windows does not allow me to bind to port 443. some system service is running there, i could not terminate.14:19
ikonia-remotevalthyx: ssh does not run on 44314:19
valthyxand i have to use port 44314:19
Galvatronphoton: The idea behind LTS is also that a kernel will be updated for a longer period of time.14:19
=== david is now known as Guest60331
ikonia-remotevalthyx: web servers SSL run on 44314:19
valthyxyes, but i have to use 443 because i am going to ssh tunneling from outside14:20
valthyxport 22 is blocked14:20
photonany way to get a newer kernel then without upgrading to 10.10 or 11.*? I really like the rest of the software to have LTS.14:20
ikonia-remotevalthyx: you said it wa son the same network14:20
ikonia-remotevalthyx: tunneling from the outside is not the same network14:20
valthyxyes, i have to try first, before bringing it our14:20
valthyxyes, i have to try first, before bringing it out14:20
ikonia-remotephoton: why do you want a newer kernel14:20
valthyxif locally is not working, then outside would not be working too14:21
ikonia-remotevalthyx: test this when you get home and you can use the local network without tunneling14:21
valthyxok, i am now.14:21
photonikonia-remote: that would take too long to explain. but I have my reasons and I have already checked alternatives.14:21
ikonia-remotevalthyx: you just said you where not and you where tunneling14:21
robbietjuhikonia-remote: Not always, they also can run on other ports.. The standard is 443, but there are some apps that don't run there..14:21
ikonia-remotephoton: in that case "no"14:21
ikonia-remoterobbietjuh: no - it has to be 443 to comply with browsers14:22
valthyxikonia-remote, you misunderstood me. i will ssh tunelling from outside, i am currently at home, testing14:22
sipiorphoton: you can always roll your own. it's not terribly hard if you apply some care.14:22
ikonia-remotevalthyx: ok - forget tunneling14:22
valthyxonce it is done, i would use it from outside14:22
ikonia-remotevalthyx: is your windows machine on the same network as your ubuntu machine, yes/no14:22
ikonia-remotevalthyx: from your windows machine can you ssh to your ubuntu machine on the local network - no tunneling yes/no14:22
valthyxbut i could not bind to port 443, some windows service is running, and it doesnt allow me to stop the process,14:22
valthyxikonia-remote, no14:23
ikonia-remoteforget 443 and binding14:23
valthyxnot even ssh14:23
ikonia-remotevalthyx: what port is ssh running on the ubuntu machine ?14:23
ikonia-remotevalthyx: change it to 22 (default) and test it from your local windows machine14:23

monty156my boot up and shut down screens are just loads of text. anyone know how to get rid of the text and show the ubuntu logo or whatever?14:33
Picimonty156: What release of Ubuntu are you using?14:36
monty156checked that usplash page but its asif the text is over the splash screen if you know what i mean14:37
Picimonty156: Are they any choices if you run: sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth14:37
Picimonty156: usplash is not applicable in 11.0414:37
Picimonty156: I don't know what you mean by that.14:37
h00kmonty156: 11.04 uses plymouth, and not usplash14:38
monty156Pici: yeah there is the one selected is /lib/plymouth/themes/glow/glow.plymouth14:39
monty156i'm not wanting to change the plymouth theme its just disabling the text overlay. it also appears REALLY low res14:43

dddbmtHi guys. For some reason every time I watch a flash movie on the internet (youtube etc.) it goes double speed + there's no sound. I've created another user on my machine - from there it works perfectly. Any ideas? (Ubuntu 11.04)14:48
theadminK350: Hit Alt+F2, type "seahorse", hit Enter, find the "login" keyring, and delete it's password.14:48
iceroot_Hyperbyte: samba can use ldap e.g.14:48
alkafoodddbmt: neat14:48
monty156om26er: thank you :D will this sort the problem of the text being overlayed over the plymouth theme14:48
iceroot_Hyperbyte: also samba can use the normal pam-stack and so using the "normal" linux-auth14:48
alkafoodddbmt: what browser?14:49
dddbmtalkafoo, both chromium and firefox.14:49
Hyperbyteiceroot_, I've already configured pam/nss to use ldap.  Do I need to configure Samba to use LDAP then still, or can I just tell Samba to use pam?14:49
alkafooboth, interesting14:49
om26ermonty156, yes, it made my install almost text free14:49
K350theadmin: Ah thanks! Oh, who, what sat the password. Shouldn't I know it?14:49
dddbmtalkafoo, as I said it works correct if I log in as another user in ubuntu. So I don't think it's a browser setting? (might be wrong though)14:49
theadminK350: I have no idea about that14:49
monty156om26er: thank you:D14:50
geirhadddbmt: With both users, open about:plugins in firefox. See if you see a difference regarding flash.14:50
om26ermonty156, yw ;-)14:50
K350theadmin: Ok , thanks again!:-)14:50
alkafoodddbmt: for Firefox, compare ~/.mozilla/plugins directories14:50
iceroot_Hyperbyte: if i am correct you can say pam or ldap. i am using a config here against ldap. maybe have a look at #samba for further infos14:50
Hyperbyteiceroot_, thanks. :)14:51
K350theadmin: I've no such program - seahorse14:51
theadminK350: Huh... It used to be installed by default14:51
dddbmtalkafoo, I only got "extensions" and "firefox" under ~/.mozilla14:51
theadminK350: You should probably sudo apt-get install seahorse14:51
alkafoodddbmt: for both users?14:51
K350theadmin: I see. And this has noting to do with my computer password or user password, no?14:52
CombatjuanIs there an ubuntu subchannel for help with kernel compiles?14:52

rickardHi, is there a killer log file viewer for ubuntu? I want something better than tail :) and the system log viewer.14:56
Combatjuantheadmin: I should clarify.  I did follow that guide and of course actually compiling the kernel was easy.  My problems (I think) are ubuntu specific.  The linux-headers.deb it created has dependency conflicts I'm not sure how to resolve.14:56
theadminCombatjuan: Oh, I see...14:57
dddbmtalkafoo, geirha - I onced played a flash game that allowed me to change the speed of the game. The problem MIGHT have occured after that - if that is any help?14:57

DroidAgentI used unetbootin to make a USB bootdisk for ubuntu server.. but it's trying to detect a CD, which it obviously doesn't have. I tried adding cdrom-detect/try-usb=true but it had no effect. When I drop to a shell in the installer I can see and mount the USB disk. Any way I can convince the installer to use my mounted USB drive as a source?15:27
Genezerah... reboot...*cough*15:28
Genezerbe right back jrib15:28

DulcinHi, how can I determine where grub is installed?15:47
Dulcinon which partition15:47
schnuffleCoolCoder: That file is PPA free, so there muist be a file inm /etc/apt/sources.list.d15:47
ikonia-remoteDulcin: it's normally put on the master boot record15:47
edbianDulcin: It is in a /boot folder15:47
ikonia-remoteDulcin: the configs are in /etc/grub and the binaries it needs likes in /boot15:48
edbianDulcin: It is in the MBR and on some partition (it is too large to fit)15:48
theadminCoolCoder: That looks about fine, do you have any files located in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ ?15:48
andrewleCan I use monit to monitor and nfs-kernel-server?15:48
andrewlenfs-kernel-server doesn't create a pidfile, so I've been at a loss15:48
DulcinSo if I have a /boot/grub/ folder it means that it is installed on the same paritition as ubuntu?15:48
CoolCodergksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d gives file not found15:48
theadminCoolCoder: Ot15:48
schnuffleCoolCoder: can reset your system with ppa-purge. That will uninstall the repository and set every package to the one from the origin rep15:48
theadminCoolCoder: It's a directory.15:48
ikonia-remoteDulcin: no, it's normally installed on the master boot record of the disk15:48
schnuffleCoolCoder: its a directory15:48
edbianDulcin: if that folder is on the same partition as ubuntu (this is most likely the case)15:48
theadminCoolCoder: cd there and then ls, see if any files exist15:49
eypaljpds: yes, that was the form I filled and sent.15:49
CoolCoderhttp://pastebin.com/YRhrH8eV these are files inside that folder15:49
Dulcinikonia-remote: Well it is all on the same harddisk, just different partitions15:49
eypaljpds: i guess i will just have to wait. I can understand they must be pretty busy15:49
Dulcinbut I guess that answered my question15:50
ikonia-remoteCoolCoder: quite a few PPA's15:50
theadminCoolCoder: Hm... And what's the error again?15:50
jpdseypal: PM.15:50
ikonia-remoteDulcin: grub is installed to the master boot record - not a partition normally15:50
ikonia-remoteDulcin: forget the partitions15:50
theadminikonia-remote: grub still does store it's configs in /boot so it does need a partition there15:50
CoolCoderhttp://bigbrovar.aoizora.org/index.php/2010/01/10/how-to-safely-remove-ppa-repository-from-ubuntu/  i am following this to remove those ppa?15:51
schnuffleCoolCoder: you can try to fix it with ppa-purge ppa:exaile-devel-ppa-natty15:51
ikonia-remotetheadmin: yes, /boot and /etc/grub are key, but grub actually lives on the mbr15:51
schnuffleCoolCoder: Yes15:51
Dulcinikonia-remote: but when installing ubuntu, it asks me where to install grub boot loader, which partition do i select there? same as ubuntu partition?15:51
ikonia-remoteDulcin: it doesn't ask you to put it on a partition15:51
theadminikonia-remote: I do know, figured after I accidentally installed grub to a partition and then couldn't boot :D15:51
ikonia-remoteDulcin: put it on the master boot record,15:52
schnuffleDulcin: If you use grub as initial boot loader it needs to go to the MBR of your first hdd15:52
Dulcinikonia-remote: It's a list with sda1 sda2 sdb1 sdb2 etc.15:52
grendal-primehey guys i got this werid thing with 10.04-64 bit install...nautilus wont open15:52
Dulcinwell let's put it this way: how do I know what my MBR is?15:52
ikonia-remoteDulcin: you should have been presented with the option to put grub on the mbr or partition, select mbr15:52
theadminDulcin: It's normally /dev/sda15:52
grendal-primeunless i su to root then its fine.15:52
ikonia-remoteDulcin: the mbr is the disk - not the partition15:53
theadmingrendal-prime: Some weirdness with the settings I guess, erase whatever nautilus config directory is15:53

xrdodrxandersonchuck, I use midori, but elinks is even lighter16:31
andersonchuckelinks ?16:31
tensorpuddingflashplayer is going to use a quite a lot of resources on any browser you use16:31
xrdodrxelinks is a textmode browser16:31
pietro10if it helps, I know the full width numbers have no serif and the characters are more spaced apart16:31
xrdodrxyou can use a framebuffer to display images16:32
xrdodrxit's the quickest you can get16:32

Ramb0I searched a lot but couldn't find anyone with the same problem..16:45
ActionParsnipRamb0: foremost possibly, if the data hasn't been nuked or overwritten, your backups will be the easiest and most reliable method of data restore16:45

ubottuGNOME is the default !desktop environment on Ubuntu up to 10.10 To install it from Kubuntu or Xubuntu, type « sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop » in a !terminal.16:47
Ramb0ActionParsnip I don't have a backup :(.. I'll give foremost a shot.. any other suggestions?16:48
ActionParsnipandersonchuck: then the lightest without gui is ubuntu minimal16:48
ubottuUnity is the default UI for Ubuntu 11.04. Unity is a shell for GNOME. see http://unity.ubuntu.com. You can still boot to the classic GNOME desktop; see !classic.16:48
jribdabukalam: is the partition you installed to full?16:48
scythefwdxrdodrx - I'm not even sure where to start on how unfortunately.  I suspect it's just the config of the .deb... which is a bit above my head.  I'm about the least competent there is on Linux.  I can use it for my needs and that's about it16:48
tensorpuddinggrendal-prime: kill it, then try starting nautilus again16:48
dabukalamjrib: nope16:48
ActionParsnipRamb0: that's all. Why do you not have a backup if your data is valuable enough to warrant effort to restore it?16:48
andersonchucksorry you didnt understand me16:48
grendal-primetensorpudding, that didnt work ither. (tried that earlyer as well)16:48
grendal-primeand its not working now16:48

scythefwdok, now the reason I really came here, 10.10 is the last version that will run on a ppc correct?16:49
poison_its slower than windows16:49
ActionParsnipandersonchuck: "<andersonchuck> can u give me name for the lightest download on ubuntu ?"   the lightest download to get Ubuntu is the minimal16:49
ActionParsnipandersonchuck: if you mean the smallest package then there will be a few, like nano which is a few Kb to download16:50
xrdodrxscythefwd, it seems that way, technically ppc hasn't been supported officially since 6.1016:50
grendal-primetensorpudding, doesnt say in the system mon..let me look under htop16:50
coraxxPici: this is weird ... they should naturally be a command that retrieves the KeyID from a repository ... so I really wanna know that command.16:51
grendal-primeya running as root16:51
coraxxPici: *they = there16:51
scythefwdxrdodrx, thanks.  Got a friend who wants to dip a toe in and give it a try.. but the only spare he has lying around is an old g416:51
Ramb0ActionParsnip, I was doing a backup because I was leaving the country.. but suddenly there where a lot of problems and I was in a hurry.. so I let the computer to my brother and asked PLEASE to do not delete the ubuntu partition.. he misunderstood and tought I told him to delete the ubuntu partition :P.. I have backup of most of the important things however,  work and college assignments.. but personal stuff like photos or things I don't know about16:51
xrdodrxscythefwd, might want to try debian :)16:51
coraxxActionParsnip: Do you know of any linux commands that can retrieve the KeyID from a repository ?16:52
dabukalamRamb0: HAHHAHAAHHAA how stupid...16:52
ActionParsnipRamb0: all i can suggest is foremost16:52
dabukalamRamb0: I LOLed16:52
rumpe1coraxx, apt-key list maybe?16:52
grendal-primeok now it says its running as the user account...but.  still nothing16:52
scythefwdxrdodrx - he's about 600 miles away, so I can't really be there to help him.16:53
ActionParsnipcoraxx: if you get the GPG key in a terminal, you can run: sudo apt-key adv --recv-key --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com KEYHERE16:53
grendal-primetensorpudding, not i got this desktop flashing thing that happens when i try and fire it off16:53
grendal-primebut nothing appearns16:53
coraxxActionParsnip: yeah I know!!!...but I don't have the 'KEYHERE'...that is the one I'm looking for16:54
OmegaI'm running out of partition space, but there is more space on my hard disk, is there a way to resize the partition while in-session (so without a live-cd)?16:54
Ramb0dabukalam, yeah... it wasn't that funny for me :P16:54
ActionParsnipcoraxx: then run:  sudo apt-get update     you will get the 16 character hex key to add16:54
rumpe1Omega, you can only resize the partition on-the-fly with special filesystems, not with ext16:54
coraxxrumpe1: thanx for the command, however it only shows the KeyID for pub_keys that has already been installed...not the KeyID for the respositories with missing pub_keys.16:55
ActionParsnipcoraxx: if you use add-apt-repository instead of adding stuff in sources.list etc, you won't get the issue16:55
benji123Hi, Does Ubuntu allow to reuse a socket even if in TIME_WAIT state?16:55
Omegarumpe1: I'm using reiserfs16:55
rumpe1coraxx, well... then check the reps in sources.list/sources.list.d, which aren't listed16:55

rumpe1konsumer, but there are several different regex-standards16:56

SmokeyDhey everyone. If I click on a usb stick in locations, it is automatically mounted and opened. But if I mount it in the terminal with "mount", I need to manually make the mount point, and be root to mount it16:59
ActionParsniproasted: if you uninstall alacarte, does the package manager want to gut the OS?16:59
SmokeyDis there a commandline way to do the same as a normal user as would be done by clicking the usb-stick in nautilus or "locations"16:59
Pici!lockdown | roasted these links may help16:59
ubotturoasted these links may help: Looking to lockdown your users' GNOME environment? Check out http://library.gnome.org/admin/deployment-guide/ - GNOME's Sysadmin guide may also be helpful: http://library.gnome.org/admin/system-admin-guide/stable/16:59
ActionParsnipSmokeyD: as long as the user is in the right group, it should work17:00
coraxxActionParsnip: When the need for a specific information arise ... calling a function/command that among other things (running maybe commands you do not wish to execute at the given time) gives you the information by throwing an error-code, that just so happens to contain it ...not a 'pretty' way to handle data-technology ;-)17:00
SmokeyDActionParsnip, in the desktop environment/nautilus, yes. But mount /dev/sdc1 doesn't work, and there is also no mountpoint for the memorystick in /media for instance17:01

oakboxHi all, I have been trying to set up eBox on my 10.04 server (followed ubuntu server guide).  I already run a site on port 443, in the setup I changed the port to 10000 but looking at the logs it is still trying to run apache on port 443.  I did a dpkg-reconfigure ebox and tried resetting the port to 10000 (and other ports) but each time i look at the logs after restarting the ebox service it is trying to use port 443.  Can anyone help?17:02
SmokeyDActionParsnip, I guess nautilus and gnome do all sorts of magic things that the "mount" commandline tool doesn't do. I am wondering what nautilus/gnome are doing17:03
rumpe1roasted, thats the magic of file permissions  ... e.g. owner: admin:admin permissions: rw-rw-r--17:03
Piciroasted: Did you look at the links I gave you at all?17:04
roastedrumpe1, good thought. I just wonder where the edit menus thing resides.17:04
rumpe1SmokeyD, usually they use FUSE (filesystem in userspace), which mounts to $HOME/.gvfs17:04
roastedPici, oh yes. I'm reading through them now.17:04
roastedPici, just continuing a side conversation, that's all. :)17:04
SmokeyDrumpe1, a usb stick is mounted to /media/<systemlabeloffilesystem>17:04
SmokeyDtry it: put a usb stick in your machine, open the location in nautilus, and check your /media folder17:05

rumpe1SmokeyD, well... FUSE isn't always used, e.g. if one was mounted earlier manually to a specific folder(?not sure) or has a fstab entry.17:07
coraxxdelki8: *that = thank17:07
lesshastefirefox seems to be quite flaky these says.. it freezes on http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-14646334 for example17:08
lesshastethis is 3.6.2017:08
lesshasteanyone else see this?17:08
ikonia-remotelesshaste: does it freeze on any other URL's17:08
lesshasteyou have to click on "live updates"17:08
delki8coraxx, im ok17:09
SmokeyDrumpe1, no my ubstick has no fstab entry. I don't know about fuse, but I know that in ubuntu, you can plugin any usb drive, and it is automatically  mounted in /media with the mountpoint being the label of the filesystem, without that mountpoint being present before17:09
lesshasteikonia-remote: it seems to freeze on pages that update themselves.. presumably it can't cope with the javascript17:09
ikonia-remotelesshaste: any other non-BBC examples ?17:09
delki8did someone here know if in 11.10 gnome 2 will be a option?17:09
SmokeyDrumpe1, it also works in my livecd17:09
tensorpuddingdelki8: it'll be gone completely17:09
lesshasteikonia-remote: I don't have any now as I don't use non-BBC pages often :) But I have seen it17:09
tensorpuddingdelki8: replaced by gnome 317:09
coraxxlesshaste: are you using a 32-bit Flash plugin on a 64-bit installation of Ubuntu ?17:10

grendal-primetensorpudding,  ya so i can create a folder on the desktop and then open it with nautilus but i cannot creat a launcher for it and i cannot launch if from the menu17:10

gileswany ideas?17:10
lesshastecoraxx: a good question.. let me check that .. uname says i686 which means 64 bit right?17:10
delki8h00k, thx for that17:11
lesshastecoraxx: about:plugins says Shockwave Flash 10.3 r181  how do I tell if that is 32 bit?17:11
tensorpuddinglesshaste: i686 would be 32-bit17:11
delki8Did someone could install with success the new Gimp 2.7.3 in 11.04? Im having some troubles...17:12
grendal-primetensorpudding, yes several times.   Also everything will work so long as i dont go to my home dir...must be some sort of permissions problem?17:12
coraxxikonia-remote:  no...but flash sometimes interferes with the stability of firefox and its scripting system17:12
lesshastetensorpudding: oh yes.. sorry17:12
lesshastecoraxx: I am on 32 bit linux it seems17:12
tensorpuddinggrendal-prime: maybe17:12
coraxxlesshaste:  "x86_64" is 64-bit .... i686 is 32-bit17:12
ikonia-remoteI've never seen flash have an effect on anything other than flash17:12
tensorpuddinggrendal-prime: your home directory is normal right?17:12

lesshastecoraxx: if you click live updates on that page.. does it freeze?17:14
delki8asch, Hello17:14
szallesshaste: no freeze here17:14
coraxxikonia-remote: I have seen on 64-bit Ubuntu installations ...that the standard plugin in the "restricted ubuntu packages" is 32-bit ...which means Ubuntu uses an nswrapper plugin thing, that messes with the "plugin-container" which messes with the execution of client-scripts, such as Javascript17:14
Slartviller: the alternate and normal install will give you the same system, afaik. the only difference is the installer (and the alternate installer has some extra options.. encryption and such)17:14
airtonixthree cheers for suspend breaking every damn week!!!17:14
lesshasteszal: which firefox version?17:14
LordShivaHey ubuntu is based on debian so yeap you can install from other source you can even make a instalation cd if you know how17:14

LordShivaIsn't just a fact taht our developers i mean debian and ubuntu are basically often same ppl :p17:17
iceroot_LordShiva: you have a support-question? else please be quit17:18
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!17:18
coraxxikonia-remote: yes... but software is tricky ... if a plugin uses too much of the CPU Load ...other processes within the software might freeze and therefore timeout ...some errors you get notified of...other you might not17:18
hyperioxPici: The guidelines say nothing about "joking around".17:18
ubottuYou might think your joke is funny, but you may confuse new users who follow your advice or irritate people who attempt to answer your question.17:18
ubottuAs our !guidelines say, "When helping, be helpful". If you're not familiar with the issue at hand, let someone else handle it instead of making !offtopic comments or jokes.17:18
grendal-primetensorpudding, ya that gvfs thing is werid17:19
LordShivaWell the best sort of a support that you could give to a ubuntu user is to tell them to read RTFM and to use Debian instead ! Actually to learn something ! :)17:19

john_ramboActionParsnip, Cant boot it using the recovery mode ...same issue17:38
coraxxlesshaste: you have to uninstall the old "flash-installer" packages first ...and then manually select the new packages which is called "flash64-installer" or something17:38
lesshastecoraxx: even on 32 bit?17:39
coraxxlesshaste: oops ...you can't install 64-bit flash on your 64-bit system....sorry17:39
lesshastecoraxx: sure.. but can you install 32 bit flash 11?17:39
lesshasteon lucid17:39
coraxxlesshaste: probably...I haven't as I only use 64-bit ....but search with google ...and see if a friendly soul has either a repository you can add or a package you can download with the new Flash-player.17:40
sdf2i have an ussue with my pc, it freezes randomly, like i do some calculations in gimp and ot freezes like, usb turns off and my screen freeze, tho i use windows on this machine, it won't give me any bsod.... so basically what should i try to do now? if i gotta replace some parts ... its not a problem but what... it seems like i can't figure out whats the problem...17:41
lesshastecoraxx: ah so that repo was 64 bit only.. ok thanks17:41
coraxxlesshaste: worst case scenario is to go to Adobe own page and download it there ...and overwrite the one file that the plugin consist of.17:41

VeritasinessHi all. I've just installed Natty, and have copied over my Windows fonts (Calibri, Cambria, Arial, etc) so that I can use them in word processing when necessary. I'm also using Libre Office, and for both Arial and Calibri (and some other fonts as well), font smoothing is just... off.18:01
coraxxActionParsnip: ok...hang checking it out :-)18:01
VeritasinessFor example, when I type out a sentence in Calibri in Libre Office, there are odd spaces between letters and things don't look quite right - but when I print it, it looks perfectly normal.18:02
ActionParsnipcoraxx: if you add that line then in /etc/apt/sources.list   then run: sudo apt-get update    you should see a GPG key error which you may be able to get the key with a groovy command18:02
coraxxActionParsnip: yes...that is probaly the page where I got the repository information the first time...however they did NOT provide a key.18:02
VeritasinessI've checked my font smoothing settings and so forth, and I've edited .fonts.conf to fix bitmap issues when scaling, but it still isn't right - and Arial has never really looked correct to me in Linux. Maybe that's because I have to spend most of my time in Windows.18:02
coraxxActionParsnip: yes I SHOULD....however I don't :-)18:03
JusticeZerowell, it looked like it went through that time, but i'm not quite sure why.18:05

kkunothe first thing I've made was upgrading18:17
theadminlaos: Installing trough Windows, you mean?18:17

theadminlaos: It adds entries to boot.ini18:17
kkunoI've tried this with different modern pcs18:17
laos@theadmin not exactly. wubi had some sort of function to  allow me to boot the live CD - so i used it, now i installed ubuntu, its on a real partition on a real drive, but grub is either broken, or something and i'm only getting Win718:18
laosim getting an ubuntu option, but it doesnt go to my install18:18
kkunoI have a good pc, 2 years old, tried with a quad core, everytime the dist upgrade is way too slow18:18

ActionParsnipkkuno: arch also uses apt...18:18
laos@theadmin i hate grub problems...18:18
theadminActionParsnip: Sorry, lolwut?18:19
theadminActionParsnip: Arch uses pacman18:19
kkunoActionParsnip, no, it uses pacman18:19
terry_kkuno: Or just back up home to flash drive and replace files as needed afterward.18:19
ActionParsnipthought it could use apt too..18:19
laos@theadmin to repair grub and recover windows, know any guides for that?18:19
kkunoterry_, yeah, but why apt can't do this for me?18:19
theadminActionParsnip: Maybe... if you're crazy enough to use apt there and wish to compile the whole apt suite from source18:19
kkunowhy windows is 10x faster than ubuntu when upgrading18:19
kkunoand archlinux too18:20
terry_kkuno: Why is it such a problem, (the time it takes)?18:20
urlin2ulaos, do you get a grub menu at powering on?18:20
kkunobecause 3 hours for upgrading is frankly too much18:20
terry_kkuno: Really, MS Windows upgrades faster?18:20
vankoochhi all18:20
kkunoterry_, nope, but faster then ubuntu18:20
laos@urlin2u i get "Windows Boot Manager" with Windows 7 and Ubuntu as options18:20
