iwantfroyo@chaospsychex I'm pretty sure it's because 2.6 is the default version. You can install python 3.1 from the Software Center, but don't remove python 2.6. It'll mess stuff up.00:39

chaospsychexwhat do you mean 'bounce' to the corner of your screen ?00:46

AszuromSo, I just installed 11.04.  Got flgrx installed for my ATI 6970 card, and oddly Compiz effects don't seem to be available.  I'm sorta newbish so I assume I'd enable them under "Appearance" but visual effects tab isn't present00:46

iwantfroyo@chaospsychex no it isn't. It draws the desktop (along with nautilus). [I think]00:47
scorchgeekI also don't remember how to do that00:48
elgruntoxscorchgeek: how would I go about doing that for my intel 300000:48
elgruntoxi thought ubuntu wouldve asked me to update or something00:48
yeatscmdbbq: memory full?  swapping?  high system load?00:48
Dr_Williscompiz is a window manager,. you use compiz or metacity.. :L)00:48
iwantfroyo@Aszurom if you give ccsm to people who don't know what they're doing, they usually break it. If you're using Unity, be very careful. Very easy to break it.00:48
iwantfroyo@Dr_Willis I thought Ubuntu's wm was gnome-wm. I didn't know compiz could act as one.00:49
scorchgeekyes, last time I played with it I managed to make windows have no title bar, I fixed that and you couldn't drag them around the screen00:49
scorchgeekfortunately a bit of googling fixed it00:49
chaospsychexwhat was the problem?00:49
scorchgeekfor some reason these features are all plugins that can be turned off00:49

iwantfroyoionite, Unity might be, but it'll probably default you into Gnome Classic, which should work fine. If it doesn't default you into there, you should probably consider trying it anyways.01:08
matttheguyhi guys is this the write room to get help with Ubuntu?  I'm having trouble connecting to my wireless network.01:08
Dr_Willisionite:  my netbook was able to run kde and gnome just fine.  some heavy eyecandy effects might bog it down a bit. but it did work decently well.01:08
iwantfroyoionite, lubuntu is LXDE, xubuntu is XFCE, kubuntu is KDE. Ubuntu's default DE is Gnome with the Unity shell, which is a little heavy for older/weaker systems.01:09
Dr_Willisionite:  for the lightest desktop = lubuntu.01:09
ioniteso i guess ubuntu is not for me..01:09
yeatsionite: I run regular ubuntu on a netbook without any problems - FYI01:09
urlin2uionite, those are opinions your getting not actual use I have that set up with unity and the cube runs sbapy.01:09
Dr_Willisionite:  ubuntu ran fine on my netbook.01:09
Dr_Willisionite:  only real issue was watching HD video files. that was a bit much for it.01:09
ionitedoes lubuntu gets the same support in channel ubuntu?01:09
iwantfroyoionite, It works perfectly fine, even on the normal Ubuntu installation (it'll put you into Gnome without the Unity shell, which is fast, and in my opinion, better)01:10
xanguaso the answer is try it yourself......01:10
Dr_Willisionite:  the layout of programs and menus are diffent. but its   supported in #lubuntu mainly. or here.01:10
iwantfroyoionite, If you want something really fast, try Lubuntu.01:10
elgruntoxionite: just dont use an external monitor!!01:10
urlin2uelgruntox, wrong.01:10
xanguaiwantfroyo: if you want amazingly fast use terminal ;)01:10
ioniteso i'll just off my unity and 3d settings right?01:10
Dr_WillisI imagine lubuntu will get more use by more people in the future as the backlash against gnome3 and unity grows :)01:10
photonI HATE UNITY.01:11
photonhad to be said.01:11
iwantfroyoxangua, I've used cli exclusively on Arch. It really is nice, but I like being able to see the Ubuntu Forums pictures.01:11
=== quu|away is now known as Quutar
valorinI LOVE UNITY.01:11
valorinhad to be said.01:11
Dr_Willisphoton:  its a work in progress.. in the 11.10 release - its gaining some nice features.01:11
* photon strongly disagrees with valorin, but respects his/her opinion.01:12
iwantfroyophoton, Unity is a relatively new project. If you want to see a really beautiful Unity, try Oneiric (11.10). Can't guarantee stability, however. It's in beta.01:12
ioniteDr_Willis: what's bad about gnom3 and unity?01:12
Dr_Willisionite:  forceing me to 'work' in ways i dont want to. :)01:12
ioniteso ubuntu have got a obstacle now which is unity?01:13
Dr_Willisand lots of little quirks...01:13
iwantfroyoionite, There's nothing wrong with them. They just use a lot of graphics resources.01:13
ioniteiwantfroyo: i'm only with 256 mb.01:13
photoniwantfroyo: hmm ok01:13
* valorin strongly disagrees with photon, but respects his/her opinion.01:13
EvollanaJesus fucking Christ Ubuntu so FUCKING MEGA sucks. Unity is a damn JOKE. Use Debian or Arch Linux!!!01:13
iwantfroyoionite, graphics memory?01:13
Evollanasuck my cock faggots01:13
FloodBot1Evollana: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.01:13
Dr_Willisionite:   when you have 30+ yrs of using systems.. and then suddendly they change things for ways that dont seem to make things any better.. its an issue.01:13
W3ird_N3rdcould I suggest somewhere what compiling options should be used for software in the Ubuntu repo's? maybe I should use brainstorm for that?01:14
chaospsychexiwantfroyo: i do i invoke the 3dwindow ?01:14
* racho disagrees with valorin and photon, but respect their opinions while working in G-Shell01:14
ioniteDr_Willis: alright... sounds not very friendly01:14
Dr_Willisionite:  depends on what you m ean by friendly. :) thats a vague term - always has been01:14
urlin2uDr_Willis, it is a opinion.01:14
yurgt1_hola a todos, alguien en español?01:14
iwantfroyoionite, They're not very customizable, so you shouldn't go for them if you like customization. However, they are VERY efficient, having stuff like universal searches, and so on.01:14
ionitebtw how do i install p7zip package?01:14
szal!es | yurgt1_01:14
ubottuyurgt1_: En la mayoría de canales de Ubuntu se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español o charlar entra en el canal #ubuntu-es. Escribe "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y dale a enter.01:14
photonit's not just with Ubuntu. A lot of software developers recently seem to think "Hey, we run out of ideas, so instead of making the existing system better and bug-free, let's just invent something completely new, just for the sake of it."01:15
W3ird_N3rdmencoder should really be compiled with twolame.. I can encode it myself, but it would be more convenient if it was just compiled in by default01:15
Dr_WillisIm getting so used to how my android phone works.. i want a desktop more like it. :)01:15
photondean: hi01:16
buguldeyHmm. mdadm seems to be buggy wrt OutOfMemory conditions. I installed a raid level 1 array /dev/md0 with 2 disks: "/dev/sdb" "missing". Formatted as reiserFS. THEN, some apps triggered O O M while I was sleeping. I rebooted with Ubuntu dialog for Shutdown/Reboot. After bootup, the file system of /dev/md0 became "Unknown" as palimpsest shows it. Something has also changed the device name from /dev/md0 into /dev/md_d0 (I haven't commanded to do s01:16
deanwhere are you from?01:16
iwantfroyophoton, Unity was a project to try to make Ubuntu stand above the crowd. In my opinion, it worked well for those who liked it. If you didn't like the change, you should try some other DE. They're still free and available, you know.01:16
ioniteDr_Willis: how do i install p7zip full for my unetbootin to install ubuntu?01:16
valorinphoton, I can understand that. I personally find Unity to work the way I like to work, but I do know a number of people who don't work the same way and prefer traditional Gnome 2. Each to his/her own :)01:16
ioniteiwantfroyo: is it possible to disable unity?01:17
urlin2uionite, you don't need 7zip for unetbootin01:17
elgruntoxso does anyone have an idea on how to fix my external monitor issue01:17
Dr_Willisif you install the unetbootin package it should pull in all it needs.01:17
ioniteurlin2u: i was prompted so.01:17
elgruntoxive updated my graphics drivers01:17
fission6what terminal based irc clients do you guys use01:17
elgruntoxstill cant 1080p01:17
Dr_Willisfission6:  i perfer weechat these days. over irssi01:18
iwantfroyoionite, yes. If you don't have enough resources, it will do that for you. If you have enough resources but don't like it, log out, look at the bottom of the screen (there should be a drop down menu that says "Ubuntu"), and change it to "Ubuntu Classic"01:18
urlin2uionite, your getting alot of bogus opinions here just frealize that.01:18
fission6Dr_Willis: ok01:18
Dr_Willishow can an opinion be bogus.. its an opinion.. :)01:18
Dr_WillisI like blue paint.. :) is that bogus?01:18
IdleOnelets stick to support please01:19
urlin2uDr_Willis, if prefaced with my opinion that is okay I have seen that just once, a new user may not know the difference.01:19
smvhello. I've been thinking to use GPT on a boot disk, but I'm not sure how the partitioning should look. if anyone would pastebin a gdisk -l /dev/sdX from a working GPT boot disk would be great...01:19
iwantfroyoionite, Ubuntu Classic will give you the Gnome 2 without the Unity shell (which is the heavy part). Gnome 2 is quite quick. My old circa 2000 machine works fine with it.01:19
elgruntoxid love support IdleOne !01:19
photoniwantfroyo, valorin: sure, I understand, but wouldn't it make more sense for those developers to invest their time into fixing bugs/security holes/memory leaks, etc? I'm sure there are still a lot of them around which are yet to be found. but instead they are doing the same mistake as Microsoft with Windows. putting a completely new OS out every few years. at least they have a reason, revenue, but that's not the case with Ubuntu. it's free anyway.01:19
buguldeyionite: sudo apt-get install p7zip-full01:19
Mr_HandsIdleOne is a power hunger GEEK who sucks man cocks and likes to get his man flower busted one a week. A NOOB at *nix. GEEK01:19
urlin2uIdleOne, accurtae support would be nice.01:19
Mr_Handssuck it nun01:20
ionitebuguldey: that was what i was looking for.. lovely.01:20
elgruntoxIdleOne: do you know how i can go about getting my monitor to use its native resolution?01:20
IdleOneelgruntox: no.01:20
elgruntoxopen source to the rescue yet again01:20
IdleOneelgruntox: someone in here probably does.01:20
rachoelgruntox, what exactly is your problem?01:20
ionitebesides the environment what is the diff between KDE and Ubuntu?01:20
buguldeyionite: you can use 'aptitude search packagename' (w/o quotes) to search for packages01:20
photonelgruntox: have you tried installing the proper graphic card drivers? that often fixed that problem for me.01:21
urlin2uelgruntox, have you looked in monitors/display01:21
elgruntoxyes yes and yes!01:21
iwantfroyophoton, The goal with Natty was to get Unity started. It isn't meant to be a bug-free system, or a completely stable one. The goal is to get it bug free and stable by 12.04. In between LTS releases, new concepts are formed and put into action. You have to expect them to have bugs.01:21
elgruntoxmonitors/display only lets me set it to 102401:21
elgruntoxdrivers are updated01:21
buguldeyionite: or aptitude search keyword01:21
elgruntoxand my xorg.conf is empty01:21
Mr_HandsIdleOne, are you a woman. I mean you don't know dick about *nix. AntiSec is still floating =)01:21
FriarI can't seem to get flash to work with 11.04. have it installed from software center, but I keep ghetting messages about installing a missing plugin.01:21
rachoelgruntox, what does xrandr -q spits01:22
photonFriar: are you using Firefox?01:22
iwantfroyoionite, The KDE version of Ubuntu is called Kubuntu, and it comes with programs written in Qt (normal Ubuntu is GTK).01:22
Mr_Handslol trying to do a trace01:22
Mr_HandsGet some real tools01:22
urlin2uFriar, install the restricted-extras01:22
elgruntoxracho: i shall find out01:22
buguldeyok. noone answered about mdadm.01:22
elgruntoxracho: it says 1920x108001:23
elgruntoxfor hdmi01:23
elgruntoxso im assuming its supported but i cant change it in the monitor settings app01:23
bosyakwhat the difference between descktop & server if I need install server at home with GUI?01:23
ioniteso ubuntu is more rigid in softwares and less customizable?01:23
Friarphoton, I am using firefox...urlin2u can I just do sudo apt-get install restricted-extras?01:24
iwantfroyoionite, No. Ubuntu uses Gnome by default, which is written in GTK. GTK programs run better in Gnome, and Qt programs run better in KDE.01:24
urlin2uFriar, yep.01:24
photonFriar: do what urlin2u said, if it does not work, I can give you another option.01:24
elgruntoxracho: any idea?01:24
urlin2uFriar, ubuntu-restricted-extras01:24
iwantfroyoionite, You can still run Qt programs in Gnome, and vice versa. They just won't support stuff like dragging something from one program to another.01:24
Dr_Willisionite:  gnome progrmas tend to be designed to be   less configurable.01:25
Friarurlin2u...ah got it...didn't recognize without ubuntu in front.01:25
rachoelgruntox, just a moment to refresh my memory with the manpage :)01:25
Dr_Willisionite:  as a way to make them more user friendly.01:25
Mr_HandsAll right ya cunts I am getting tired of your LOL Linux noob stuff. Get a real system like Arch or BackTrack 5. Metasploit framework and learn some RFI, OFI and XSS with some nice SQL injection tricks.01:25
elgruntoxracho: you rock!01:25
ionitestill puzzled in between kde and ubuntu wonder which should i try sighs.01:25
iwantfroyoDr_Willis, Gnome programs are plenty customizable. Just usually behind the scenes. The options aren't right there in front of you.01:25
Friarthanks photon, and urlin2u.01:25
Dr_Willisiwantfroyo:  often not even behind the scenes...01:26
urlin2uMR-Hands sociopath or narcissist which I wonder01:26
Friargot another question about photography with ubuntu....I've read about programs that you can use to control a nikon d90 with your computer.01:26
valorinphoton, I think part of it comes down to being innovative. A lot of users, like yourself, are happy to use a rock solid desktop which doesn't change, while others like to try new things and designs. There is the "shiny" affect as well, where being new and pretty attracts users. But I personally find the launcher and dash to be a lot quicker and easier to use than the old menus, so I'll never go back. I find unity better, even tho01:26
valorinugh it's got bugs and issues, they are being resolved and the experience gets better over time.01:26
iwantfroyoDr_Willis, that is true. KDE has its merits, and Gnome does too. KDE is better for customization, I agree.01:26
bosyakDr_Willis: Please, what the difference between descktop & server if I need install server at home with GUI?01:26
rachoelgruntox, you have a laptop/netbook or desktop01:26
Friardoes anyone know what that is? i'm looking to do some night photography with my camera01:26
Dr_Willisbosyak:  server has no gui..  if you dont know that you need a server.. stick to the desktop edition01:27
szalbosyak: what do you need a GUI on a server for?01:27
iwantfroyoionite, You can install normal Ubuntu, then install the kubuntu-desktop package, which well let you log into whichever you choose.01:27
Dr_Willisbosyak:   you can run services on the desktop editiion01:27
elgruntoxracho: laptop with hdmi out01:27
elgruntoxtoa monitor01:27
iwantfroyoionite, I find installing KDE onto Ubuntu is easier than installing Gnome+Unity onto Kubuntu.01:27
elgruntoxim trying to set the monitors display01:27
urlin2uFriar, you're welcome.:D01:27
Dr_Willisionite:  i tend to install lubuntu, kubuntu, and ubuntu all on my system. :)01:27
Dr_Williswife uses lubuntu, i normally use kubuntu, sometimes i use ubuntu.01:28
X_already_in_usehey guys, help me out here, I've always wondered how to format a pendrive/usb flashdrive/thumbdrive  on linux (my lubuntu),  in win7 all I do is rite click format on My Computer, how do I go about this on lubuntu, just use Gparted then delete partition, add new partition ??01:28
Dr_WillisX_already_in_use:  gparted an do it.. yes.. or command line tools.01:28
iwantfroyoDr_Willis, Wow. That's a lot. I'm considering trying LXDE myself (despite using Linux for years, I've never really tried it). What do you think of it?01:28
xanguaX_already_in_use: you can also right clic-format01:28
Dr_Willisiwantfroyo:  lubuntu works decently well.01:28
Dr_Willisiwantfroyo:  its missing a few little things.. but nothing major.01:29
iwantfroyoDr_Willis, Alright. Thank you. I'll try it when I have the time.01:29
fedeHi, anyone knows hot to activate opengl on photoshop using wine?01:29
bosyakDr_Willis, szal  I want install server (postfix, VM, httpd,...) for test enviroment... and in the same time work like on desktop. And I want to know what the difference between distribution (server vs desktop)01:29
darthtoneis their anyway to change the way shell reads and puts out data size from kb to mb?    for example 7,583 kb/10,000 downloading?01:29
darthtonefrom apt-get and such01:29
Dr_Willisbosyak:  as i said.. you can install services on the desktop install...01:29
Dr_Willisbosyak:  theres no real reason for you to use the server install just to play with some services01:30
rachoelgruntox, xrandr --output *device name here* --mode 1920x108001:30
bosyakDr_Willis: ok, thanks01:30
* szal doesn't think there is a difference, the kernel is the same on *buntu01:30
elgruntoxhey that worked racho01:31
elgruntoxdo i have to do that every time i log in01:31
elgruntoxor reboot01:31
Dr_Willisserver i think installs a differnet default kernel.. and a few other little things.. but its easier to install services on desktop . then install a desktop on server install..01:31
photonvalorin: I guess I'm just being old-fashioned. I prefer a stable, secure system over something brand new anytime, although I do understand the appeal. but I honestly don't want Linux to get a lot of users, because then black-hat hackers and malicious people will focus their attacks more and more on Linux. You can see that starting with the Macintosh now. And I honestly don't think that Linux is that much safer than any other OS, yes it's architecture01:31
photonis safer by design than, say, Windows, but still. too many bugs and security holes are still found years after an initial release.01:31
X_already_in_usexangua, where do I rite click format in linux? to format the pendrive/thumbdrive01:31
xanguaX_already_in_use: on the pendrive icon...01:31
rachoelgruntox, i suppose it will work until reboot. but you can always make a little script to start it automatically01:31
elgruntoxracho: actualy nevermind now i can select it in the menu01:31
elgruntoxi just clicked set default so i hope that worked!01:32
elgruntoxthanks a bunch for the help01:32
iwantfroyophoton, I agree. The good thing is the code is open, so if Ubuntu becomes really mainstream, people who need more security can just switch.01:32
rachoelgruntox, :) you're welcome01:32
darthtoneis there anyway to change the way the term prints out data size from KB to MB?01:32
elgruntoxi guess the settings app didnt detect my monitor properly or something01:32
X_already_in_usexangua, i dont see the reformat option01:32
photoniwantfroyo: switch? to another distro?01:33
rachoelgruntox, the answer is probably in the Xorg logs01:33
X_already_in_usexangua, im using pcman file manager01:33
xanguaX_already_in_use: well in ubuntu gnome it is01:33
X_already_in_usexangua, interesting, will check that out. thnx for the tips anyways01:33

swaroopis there an easier way to export all 5000 songs to my Ubuntu root ?01:48
nac-godfatheranyone know how to get xscreensaver to run under root?01:48
Dr_Willisetfb:  i would not use the term execellent. :)01:48
etfbDr_Willis, as I said - after KDE4, everything looks good.01:49
swaroopdoes ipod get mounted?01:49

hsantiagohi, my glxgears is not working. i get this message: "Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0"." i removed my nvidia card and now im using onboard video. how can i fix it?01:49
Dr_Willisetfb:  i find kde4 very useable right now01:49
swarooppardon my ignorance01:49
etfbDr_Willis, probably is - it's what, two years since it was made standard in Kubuntu?  Three?  Long enough for it to finally be ready.01:49
Dr_Willisetfb:  and in 3 years. unity may be muchbetter. :)01:50
Dr_Willisor it may be a dead project.01:50
usr13I think it's because she toggles back and forth with F1101:50
etfbOh certainly.  I look forward to the day that the icon bar up the top works properly with XChat, Skype, etc, the menus in LibreOffice are integrated, the bloody sidebar hides when it's supposed to...01:50
freshone0what should ber the mount location or point for the 400 gb partition?01:50
swaroopin 3 years Ubuntu maybe the best OS ever01:50
swaroopi mean better than OS X01:51

Dr_Willisfreshone0:  mount it whever you want. dependign on your needs01:52

rwwKrenair: 1) #ubuntu+1 for oneiric discussion and support, please. 2) Yes, as far as I know.02:39

justyellowboyYou're trying to establish a partition in a CD-Rom right?02:55
BrandonBoltonrww: I thought this was the general chat one. Sorry about that. I have no association with the website just a member. :)02:55
freshone0no i want my"  home " to be the larger partition02:56
freshone0out of 500 gb it is only 100 gb02:56
freshone0and i do not have permission to use the 400 gb02:56
justyellowboyOhhh you are creating a filesystem and trying to resize your home partition.02:57
freshone0the 400 gb partition is mounted on /02:57
freshone0is it ok or do i need to change it02:57
BrandonBoltonfreshone0, Go to terminal and type in sudo apt-get install gparted I just gparted for all of my partition needs. :)02:57
justyellowboyThat means that the root filesystem is on the 400 gb partition.02:58
dr-willisnot sure of the proper wsy to shrink a primary and add it to an extended and logical.02:58
justyellowboyYou would have to eliminate that entire partition to add it to your current home partition.02:58
justyellowboyAnd then02:58
Lasersfreshone0: There are no ideal solutions -- just preferences. My preference was using two HDD. 20GB HDD for / -- and 300TB for ~/02:58
justyellowboyyou'd have to find a new place to put the root filesystem.02:58
justyellowboyYou follow me so far, right?02:58
justyellowboyI believe that's the case.02:59
dr-willisit may take some work in gparted to resize them.02:59
freshone0how does on e acess a file on / ?02:59
usr13freshone0: You need to shrink your / partition (/dev/sda1)  and increase size of /home (/dev/sda5)02:59
dr-willissame as any other location freshone002:59
justyellowboyOh okay, I thought you couldn't shrink the / partition. o:03:00
BrandonBoltonfreshone0: Why didn't you just edit the partition table during the installation?03:00
dr-willisusr13:  he may need to grow theextended fiirst then the logical03:00
usr13freshone0:   The root partition  (/dev/sda1)  can be as small as 30G03:00
justyellowboyHe probably assumed 100 gb was enough03:00
freshone0how does one use  a partition mounted on/03:00
justyellowboyYou boot it.03:00
LasersThrough fstab?03:00
LasersThat's for automatic stuffs.03:01
dr-willisfreshone0:  you will want to be ysing a live cd with gparted on it for this work03:01
usr13freshone0: dr-willis is correct  /dev/sda2  has to be enlarged. (Because /dev/sda5 is logical partition on /dev/sda2)03:01
freshone0i mean i can only store files in the  home partition  how do i access  the rest03:01
usr13freshone0: Yes, that is how it works03:01
justyellowboyBeing able to store files in the home partition is a good thing, majorly.03:02
dr-williscd /     then ls. you are acessing it..03:02
usr13freshone0: You just need to change your partition sizes to match your needs.03:02
justyellowboyAgh I should at least know the answer to that question aljfkffs I suck at helping03:02
freshone0tell me what to do03:02
justyellowboyfstab has a friendly interface, right?03:03
usr13freshone0:  The root partition / (/dev/sda1) can be small.  20-30G is plenty03:03
justyellowboyHahaha okay03:03
dr-willisfreshone0:  get a live cd that has gparted for starters. backup imporntant files also.03:03
usr13freshone0: Increase size of /dev/sda2 (and in turn /dev/sda5) to about 400G03:04

BrandonBoltonfreshone0: Here, follow this link. http://www.wikihow.com/Use-Gparted It's to learn how to use Gparted. After you learn go to terminal and type 'sudo apt-get install gparted' without the qoutes of coures :)03:04
freshone0dev/sda1 is 372.53 gib03:04
usr13freshone0: Yes, that is way too big03:04
freshone0according to gparted03:04
usr13freshone0: Home needs to be that big (or bigger)03:05
usr13freshone0: As dr-willis suggests, fire up the liveCD and use gparted03:05
freshone0and dev/sda5 is 92.2303:05
dr-willisyou could just move home to the / and not use a seoerate home partitiin03:05
freshone0what do i do03:05
chaospsychexwho would do such a thing as that03:05
usr13freshone0: shrink /dev/sda1  and take up the space on  /dev/sda2 (and in turn /dev/sda5, the logical partition).03:06
justyellowboyProbably people who don't want to have the hassle of partition resizing, although it sounds simple enough in this case~03:06
dr-willisthen delete the sda2.  and resize sda1 and remake sda2. move home back03:06
freshone0live cd is the cd i used to install ubuntu03:06
justyellowboyYes, that LiveCD.03:06
freshone0so i just put it and then what?03:06
justyellowboyUse that.03:06
justyellowboyI got this!03:06
chaospsychexhe will have to chroot03:07
BrandonBoltonfreshone0: Yes, that is the live cd. Just choose the try Ubuntu link.03:07
dr-willisjustyellowboy:  rhw use of a extended logical makes it a little harder03:07
justyellowboyInsert the LiveCD and reboot. You can use a key (F11 works) to boot from CD. Then you will be using the LiveCD OS.03:07

tripelbfrom the community documentation I am understanding that ubuntu on a macbook 2.1 does not support the built-in wireless (airport) - there is a picture with a lock on it. Is this true?  ( https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBook2-1/Lucid#Wireless_.28AirPort.29 )04:39
caseyterr_: Really? That's not good. Well thank you for replying. Is there any way around this? Also do you know anything about why Vuze crashes anytime I try to search?04:39
terr_Cuchulainn: mbr should only affect boot.04:39
terr_casey: I've never heard of VUSE04:39
caseyterr_: It also goes by azreus.04:40
caseyterr_: Previous name I should say.04:40
terr_casey:  only way I know is politcal.  Like I've told programmers I spervised and managed that they have time to put in proper errror checking and at the end of the day they didn't!04:40
chaospsychexhow can i start a irc server?04:41
chaospsychexwhat program do i use04:41
Cuchulainnterr_, and that's the probl...tried ntfsfix...no avail...can't ultimately read mft's...so created an image with ddrescue, and then using scalpel to carve out each file type into a directory...is this the bes/preferred course of action?04:41
daniel__is it possible to use 4G on ubuntu?04:41
caseyterr_: Oh ok. Well is this going to be corrected in 11.10?04:41
adamixchaospsychex: inspircd04:41
terr_chaospsychex: I asked that question 10 years ago and was asked why I want to?04:41
simplebluedoes ubuntu 11.04 come with C++0x installed by default?04:41
chaospsychexi have my reasons04:41
chaospsychexinspirecd? what is that04:42
adamixirc server daemon04:42
tripelbcasey I just came in on this. I used transmission with no problems. I hope that helps. (I failed with Vuze/azurus)04:42
chaospsychexwhats the package name of the daemon /.04:42
terr_Cuchulainn: I'd make a disk image with dd and then send the drive to seagate.  its like $100 and they will tell you the bill and its under $200004:43
caseytripelb: Is there any search features with transmission, because that's what i'm really looking for. From what I saw, it's just to download and upload torrents.04:43
tripelbcasey, please be more specific. Do you want to search the internet to look for torrents?04:43
caseytripelb: lol of course not. I can do that with any browser of my liking. I'm looking for a torrent downloading software that will search certain sites for me: such as frostwire, vuze, qb, etc.04:44
tripelbcasey if that's what you mean, I have good success with isotorent and google. (it'would be great but I get so many results that want me to pay for their site that I get fruestrated from time to tome)04:44
caseytripelb: Same here. That's why i'm looking for an app that will do that such as the ones listed above.04:45
terr_Cuchulainn: Only way I'd take on the NTFS issue is if someone will pay $100 per hour after I figure out how to do it.04:45
wildbatCuchulainn: how you messed you ntfs? ~ there are more and better tools for Windows for NTFS then linus. or you can try testdisk/ photorec.04:45
daniel__if it's possible to use 4G in ubuntu, do i need som package for it??04:45
tripelbcasey, I dont understand about that so that's my limit. If you want to explain to me you can pm me (since it is off topic) or tell me to go to #ubuntu-offtopic04:45
caseytripelb: its ok. But thank you for trying. I may have found my answer :).04:46
tripelbcasey, what do you search them for?04:46
urlin2udaniel__, not without a router/modem/phone04:47
Cuchulainnterr_, wildbat , ty for the advice...meshes with what i'd already found, but unfortunately not apropos for this job....04:47
tripelbcasey I'll go look myself) and you are welcome.04:47

Cuchulainnterr_, just a personal favor that i took on, and if it's gone, it's gone; but would be a shame, as is pictures of his 13 grandchildren...and 2gs wouldn't be a problem for him, if he didn't have at least 13 grandchildren...04:49
urlin2udaniel__, so is this 20 questions here can you give specifics it is you that needs the help here.04:50
Cuchulainnterr_, if that makes sense at all..04:51

ubottusolofight: #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!05:15
TheEvilPhoenixoh nevermind05:15

elizabethwhy cant i use it on skype?05:16
elizabethi dont have it running in the back ground and i just want to be able to get it working before i leave for school. lol.05:16
elizabethi tried to open skype and share video but it doesnt do anything05:16
AlessonZaireSure sure educational purposes at 1am, just keep asking at conventional time and someone will eventually know how to help you05:17
zHammeRzmyself I would wait until 3am, and then call grandpa and say the chat channel says they don't know to call you. :)05:18
tensorpuddingelizabeth: probably a driver issue05:18

elizabethi dk anything about the workings of a computer i just know how to use the internet and programs for the most part lol. he told me that he had it working earlier with skype but i am not sure if he tried the web cam out05:20
AlessonZaireHe got rid of the webcam drivers on purpose to avoid misuse lol05:21

tensorpuddingelizabeth: if you want to fix the issue05:24
tensorpuddingelizabeth: you'll have to get some information05:24
elizabethwhat information?05:24
tensorpuddingelizabeth: you'll need to open a terminal, and type some commands05:24
elizabethopen a terminal?05:24
tensorpuddingelizabeth: yes05:24
tensorpuddingit's a program05:24
elizabethhow do i do that?05:24
tensorpuddingit's called Terminal05:24
tensorpuddingyou'll find it in applications05:24
laiboowhy i can't install PDFLaTex and LaTeX ?05:25
elizabethok got the terminal05:25
tensorpuddingelizabeth: okay, type 'lsusb'05:25
elizabeththen what05:25
tensorpuddinghit enter05:26
tensorpuddingelizabeth: it'll write a bunch of stuff, information about all the parts of your computer, including your webcam05:26
elizabethit wrote three devices05:26
tensorpuddingelizabeth: do you know what version of ubuntu you have?05:26
elizabethno but i have skype 2.0 on here that he downloaded for me05:27
elizabethif that helps any05:27
kwixson_uDumb question: how do I mount a SD card I just stuck into my netbook?05:27
tensorpuddingelizabeth: do you see your webcame there?05:27
tensorpuddingelizabeth: in the devices05:27
elizabethyes i saw the webcam name there. well not the actual web cam name but its a device called webcam05:28
tensorpuddingelizabeth: okay05:28
kwixson_uIt sometimes just pops up on my desktop. This time it doesn't.05:28
tensorpuddingwhat's the ID05:28
tensorpuddingelizabeth: it'll look like four characters, then a :, then four numbers05:28
milamberkwixson_u: this will tell you where the filesystem is: sudo fdisk -l05:28
milamberkwixson_u: then you will have to create a directory and mount the fs there05:29
tensorpuddingthat should be supported by skype05:29
tensorpuddingwhich version of skype do you have05:29
tensorpuddingopen skype and check the about05:29

RvPupanyone on tonight thats good with install foulups?05:32
tensorpuddingelizabeth: probably05:32
tensorpuddingelizabeth: what version of ubuntu is it05:32
elizabethi still dont know that05:32
tensorpuddingelizabeth: open up System Monitor05:32
elizabethhow do i find that one out?05:32
elizabethwhere is system monitor?05:32
milamberkwixson_u: you can also run the command: df to compare the devices listed to the mount points. and the fs on the card is probably going to be some sort of fat vs the ext3/4 linux05:32
tensorpuddingelizabeth: it should be under applications05:32
tensorpuddingif your laptop is that old, your grandfather might have put a rather old version of ubuntu on it05:33
tensorpuddingyou might want a newer one05:33
elizabethi wish i knew how to get a newer version of it.05:33
elizabethi cant find a system monitor.05:33
tensorpuddingdepending on which version you have, you might easily upgrade05:33
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade05:33
elizabethso what version do i want?05:34
ActionParsnipelizabeth: what cpu and ram does the system have?05:35
kwixson_umilamber: The df command shows me only the native filesystem and one of the two (the one that is always in this netbook) SD cards I have stuck into the machine.05:35
tensorpuddingelizabeth: i think it's under Applications -> System05:35
elizabethcpu? ram?05:35
milambertensorpudding: lsb_release -r  ??05:35
kwixson_uNo mention of the 2nd.05:35
milamberkwixson_u: can you pastebin the output of sudo fdisk -l and df?05:35
AlessonZaireIt might be not so wise to upgrade at this moment, some people are complaining the newest kernel version is having battery problems with notebooks05:36
tensorpuddingelizabeth: given the age of your machine, it's not going to be able to run the newest05:36
elizabethso what does that mean?05:36
tensorpuddingelizabeth: did you find System Monitor in the System submenu of Applications?05:36
crash1hdCan anyone tell me what the limitations are for a wubi install?05:36
crash1hdif any05:37
ActionParsnipElizabeth: how fast is the cpu? How much ram does it have? If it has a make and model then what is it and we can use that to find out :-)05:37
milamberkwixson_u: then the fs (usually sd something) that is listed on the fdisk, but not the df is the one that still needs to be mounted05:37
AlessonZairecrash1hd none :D05:37
tensorpuddingActionParsnip: she doesn't know about computers, it's a compaq presario 70005:37
AlessonZaire<- is on a wubi install now05:37
crash1hdWould I be able to use wine without issue?05:37
tensorpuddingActionParsnip: they used amd durons, and had about 256 MB of RAM in default config05:37
AlessonZairecrash1hd yes, I use wine perfectly on a wubi install05:37
AlessonZaireIt even runs world of warcraft lol05:37
ActionParsnipcrash1hd: same as a regular install. The ubuntu drive is just stored in a f05:37
crash1hdhow about if I choose to give it dedicated hdd space later? can I transfer it or do I have to reinstall?05:38
tensorpuddingelizabeth: if you can't find system monitor, try typing lsb_release -r into the terminal you have open, and tell me what it says05:38
ActionParsnipcrash1hd: you won't be able to access the ubuntu data from windows but the wubi will be able to access the windows data from /host05:39
elizabethit said no lsb modules are available05:39
crash1hdActionParsnip, ahh that makes sense05:39
AlessonZairecrash1hd the only difference is that you'll have the ubuntu data and windows data at the same partition, which I find to be quite convenient, but it's always your choice05:39
tensorpuddingelizabeth: what about lsb_release -a05:40
ActionParsnipcrash1hd: there is a wubi to real install method, I've not done it personally05:40

z3ro3xI used the alternate cd to install Ubuntu 11.04 into a virtual machine (I'm experimenting here) with /boot as first primary and everything else (swap, /, /home) in an encrypted LVM.  MY question is, if I ever want to do a fresh install in the future as opposed to a upgrade, how do I unlock the encrypted LVM during the setup process and tell it not to reformat /home?  Normally when I do a fresh reinstall I can tell the partition manager06:19
z3ro3x not to format /home and I'm good.  But with this new setup it's way more complicated.06:19
milamberbullgard4_: yes. i thought i got it from the repos, but i have reported several bugs (that have been fixed). so current is probably going to be your best bet.06:19

cristian_cI've got a keyboard called Media Wireless Desktop by Labtec. I tried to set the keyboard shortcuts directly from the Applications-> Settings-> Xfce4 settings manager -> Keyboard-> Applications shortcuts. I clicked on Add and for example I typed the command 'evolution'. I pressed Ok and then the system asked me to type the key on the keyboard.09:00
cristian_cIn this case the key was correctly recognized as XF86Mail and has been included in the list of shortcuts. But if I press the mail key, it always happens the same problem, that instead of opening evolution, the pc goes into stand-by. Is anyone able to understand what the problem is due? I even tried keytouch editor and it recognized the keys.09:00

qmrI've had about 10x in last week when desktop has stopped responding requiring multiple GDM restarts, and 3 times system has crashed completely09:43
qmrI sent shuttleworth some hate tweets.  http://i.imgur.com/VkC3I.jpg09:44
htmlqmr,   bs  you say ? well i  do say that  since 11.04  we offically have a linux distro just like VISTA , and 11,10 is going to be like win7 (its a toss up)09:44
SoothsayerWhat all are the startup script files on ubuntu?09:45
qmrhtml: is that good or bad? :P09:45
Sidewinder1qmr, I stick with LTS versions; unless ones hdw is cutting/bleeding edge, for me, that's the best bet. Sorry you're having problems w/Natty.09:45
qmrSoothsayer: /etc/rc.d/09:45
Soothsayerqmr, I don't have that file.09:46
SoothsayerI have an rc.local (file) and rc0.d , rc1.d, etc, etc which are directories09:46
qmrwell that's not quite correct.  it's /etc/init.d/, and /etc/rc[1-6].d for various runlevels09:46
auronandace!upstart | Soothsayer09:47
ubottuSoothsayer: Upstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/09:47
BadgerpooAnyone able to help with ipv6 issues?09:47
ActionParsnipqmr: does it happen as all users?09:47
qmrActionParsnip: single user system09:47
Soothsayerqmr, so /etc/init.d/apache2 is what causes  apache to start at boot?09:47
ActionParsnipqmr: no, Ubuntu is a multi-user OS09:48
ActionParsnipqmr: make ANOTHER user and see if it's the same with vanilla settings09:48
qmrSoothsayer: that's teh apache control script, it's started from ...09:48
qmrwhy don't you put that in a memo and entitle it "Shit I Already Know"09:48
auronandaceqmr: seriously, watch the language09:49
qmrSoothsayer: the bit that starts apache is going to be something like /etc/rc2.d/S20apache209:49
ActionParsnipqmr: your settings for nautilus may be corrupted, if the app reads them it may hang. A new user with default settings behaving the same way as the current user will point to the app being defective, if it is ok then it is simply your user settings which are bad09:50
qmrit's not a regularly occuring problem though09:50
ActionParsnipqmr: its worth exploring09:51
Sidewinder1qmr, And if the apps defective, you could try totally removing it and reinstalling (Nautilus).09:51
Soothsayerqmr, wow, these files go over my head. I expected there to be just one line saying apache2ctl restart or something09:52
Sidewinder1qmr, But you probably already know that. :D09:52
wh1zz0Hello everyone, my hibernate does not work. It wored before but it no longer works, I use Dell Vostro 1310 and i"m on natty09:52
Myrttiactuallty, sudo service apache2 start, or somesuch09:52
qmrI just need to install 10.04 or whenever ubuntu was last junk09:52
uabn93i downloaded the latest mupen64plus, ran install.sh in terminal, it installed. now what? how do i run the program?09:52
qmrSoothsayer: what are you wanting to change about how apache runs or when it runs or?09:53
wh1zz0Hello everyone, my hibernate does not work. It worked before but it no longer works, I use Dell Vostro 1310 and i"m on natty.. Please how can I get it working again?09:53
ActionParsnipuabn93: if you run:   which muppen64plus    does it output anything?09:53
=== fisted_ is now known as fisted
Sidewinder1qmr, 10.04 works (almost) flawlessly for me.09:53
qmrwh1zz0: tried booting old kernels?09:53
Soothsayerqmr, I want to actually change the startup configuration used for mongodb, not apache.09:53
wh1zz0qmr: How do I do that? When it's loading I hold shift right/09:53
Soothsayernormally, I started it with the command sudo mongod --dbpath /var/lib/mongodb/      but I want to see how does it start on boot.09:54
qmrwh1zz0: when your computer starts you should see a GRUB screen with your configured OS's listed.. old kernels will be an option there09:54
qmrwh1zz0: did this loss of functionality happen after a kernel update?  Or other software update?09:54
apleActionParsnip: So, once I make this VirtualBox, will it save it's state or do I have to do that manually? For instance, if I download a bunch of apps and such on the Ubuntu virtualbox, will they load the next time I hit "Start" or do I have to save that state lest I start off on a clean Ubuntu install every time?09:54
uabn93ActionParsnip: its in /usr/local/bin/mupen64plus how do i go about opening it?09:54
qmraple: the virtualbox is persistent09:55
ActionParsnipuabn93: you can make a launcher on the desktop to run that comamnd and you can then double click the launcher09:55
wh1zz0qmr: I have just one OS .. which is ubuntu.. when my computer starts it just shows DELL, then purple and then writes ubuntu and heads to the login screen09:55
qmrwh1zz0: it sounds like you have timeout 0 in grub or such ..09:56
movan2011Hi there.  I'm using "classic" Gnome (2.32) on Ubuntu 11.04 and added a drawer applet to a left-hand panel.  When you first add thing into the panel it work fine, but once you log out (or killall gnome-panel) it doesn't show when you click it.09:56
ActionParsnipaple: you can stop systems and save state, or you can shut them down etc. The updates and changes you make are persistent between boots09:56
qmrwh1zz0: or try pressing shift key when your computer comes on?09:56
wh1zz0qmr: I'm guessing it must have happened after I installed something, but I am not sure what because I installed a whole lot of things on that day09:56
damo22wh1zz0: hold left shift while pc boots09:56
movan2011Eventually figured out how to get it showing but now it seems oriented in the top left corner of the screen and I can't move it and ubuntu seems to ignore any changes I make to its position properties.  Anyone know how to fix this?09:57
wh1zz0qmr: So which of the kernels do you sugges I boot?09:57
qmrwh1zz0: NOT whatever the highest numbered one is.  go backwards one by one until you find one that hibernates properly09:57
apleActionParsnip, qmr: So interesting :)))09:57
wh1zz0qmr, damo22: But will this affect any setting I have or will it roll back any installed program?09:58
qmrwh1zz0: no.  this is booting a different kernel image.  you're still running the same software09:58
damo22wh1zz0: it will just load a different kernel, all the apps stay intact09:58
wh1zz0qmr, damo22: Great.. Thanks for this.. Will try that now.10:00

jasefHey uhm, I'm getting ready to fresh install 11.10 over my 11.04 installation, but I just remembered I chose to encrypt my home folder, is there any way to reverse this so all my files are accessible when I install 11.10?10:08
damo22jasef: make sure you know the password that encypts your data, and preferably which algorithm10:10
jasefI know my password, but I don't know what algorithm Ubuntu encrypts home folders with.10:11
damo22jasef: good point, neither do i10:11
dr-williswhen in doubt... backup...  ;)10:12
damo22jasef: is your home folder on a separate partition?10:12
Brutus-i can't find the acpid deamon listed among the processes in the system monitor. Is acpid the name of the daemon?10:13
aeplusfull disk encryption is awesome, but it does not seem to be available on the main installation media (alternate install CD supports it though)10:13
ActionParsnipI think its a big headache10:13
damo22ActionParsnip: i agree10:14
uabn93what about truecrypt10:14
damo22i like to be free to dd a partition and remount it without worrying about encryption algorithms10:15

Dori922whats a good guide for learning fdisk? that explains cylinders, heads etc...10:15
uabn93ActionParsnip: i tried it all and nothing seems to work. should i restart or something?10:15
=== Badgerpo1 is now known as Badgerpoo
damo22Dori922: cylinders/heads/sectors are not really relevant in todays hardware as everything is logical block addressing10:16
kescchow do i "reboot your computer and select the Linux kernel 3.0 entry on your GRUB boot loader."10:16
dr-willisDori922:  wikipedia pages on hard drives and partitions is a good start.10:17
uabn93kescc: use your keyboard arrows10:17
kesccuabn93 what do you mean, when10:17
damo22Dori922: although if you are doing something strange like rebuilding a usb-zip drive you might need it10:17
kesccuabn93 when at reboot i should use arrows?10:17
kesccuabn93 i dont even know what is GRUB, explaine please10:18
aple1How much RAM should I allocate for this Ubuntu VirtualBox y'think?10:18
aple14gb total10:18
oCeankescc: explain what are you trying to do? There is no 3.0 kernel in current ubuntu version10:18
aple1Doing a lot of Photoshop on Win710:18
ActionParsnipuabn93: what will rebooting achieve?10:18
damo22aple1: probably not more than 50% of your total ram?10:18
aple1I was thinking 768mb.10:19
kesccoCean yes it is, i am trying http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-to-Install-Linux-Kernel-3-0-on-Ubuntu-11-04-217409.shtml10:19
aple1Think Ubuntu will run smoothly with that?10:19
ActionParsnipuabn93: try: cd ~/Desktop; ln -s  /usr/local/bin/mupen64plus10:19
Dori922damo22: I have a server with a 1tb drive and want to have ~ 50gb in the server partition and 950gb in a storage partition.. then subdivide the storage partition into different logical partitions(for different users)10:19
uabn93kescc: grub is the black screen that shows up when you boot up your computer. when you see that screen, u get 10 seconds to choose which operating system to boot. use the up and down arrows and enter to select10:19
Dori922damo22:  when i use fdisk it asks me about stuff like cylinders :o10:19
damo22Dori922: thats not too hard, try gparted10:19
oCeankescc: that kernel is from a PPA, those are not supported 3rd party repositories. Be very careful when using PPA's10:19
kescckescc i dont get that, i have only ubuntu on this machine10:20
kesccuabn93 ^10:20
Dori922damo22:  isnt that a gui system? i dont have a gui on the server :s10:20
ultrixxjasef: ubuntu uses aes+xts for harddisk encryption10:20
damo22Dori922: oh okay, then i know how to do it10:20
damo22Dori922: it will be painful from command line though10:21
uabn93kescc: if you only have ubuntu, then a list will show up when you have more that one kernel installed10:21
Dori922damo22: if i had a gui it would be fine but i dont :P unless i install a gnome gui and then uninstall when the partitions are done...10:21
jasefultrixx, thanks. I'm thinking I might just go the easy cheap way and copy the files out and then back in after installing 11.10 lol...10:21
damo22Dori922: perhaps you can boot the server into a livecd and use gparted10:22
damo22Dori922: so you dont have to touch the server install, just run the livecd temporarily while you partition the drive in a gui10:23
vanquish349how do i check systems specks10:23
lnghi! I need to install libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0, but it's not present on my Ubuntu. Do I need to add the repo for it? http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/libgdk-pixbuf2.0-010:23
Dori922damo22:  can i do that -after- servers installed?10:23
lngor how do I install it?10:23
ActionParsniplng: what is the output of:  lsb_release -sc10:23
oCeanvanquish349: there are several ways.. lspci, lsusb, cat /proc/cpuinfo, cat /proc/meminfo etc.  Running  sudo lshw  will give a comprehensive list of your hardware config10:23
damo22Dori922: sure why not..10:24
lngActionParsnip: I have lucid10:24
Dori922damo22:  thanks :D *new*10:24
damo22Dori922: are you sure you want separate partitions for each user, or just a partition for /home10:25
ActionParsniplng: then you may need to upgrade to maverick, or find a ppa with the app10:26
ActionParsniplng: mixing packages between releases is not advised or supported10:26
lngActionParsnip: how do I upgrade to maverick?10:27
damo22Dori922: i think its possible to set up disk quotas for each user without giving them physical restriction by partition10:27
lngActionParsnip: do I need livecd?10:27
ActionParsnip!upgrade | lng10:27

maalacssl handshake error on pidgin sipe : office communicator10:27
Dori922damo22:  i need to have each partition as secure for each user as possible ideally i want to stop them ls'ing each others partitions10:29
damo22Dori922: you can do that with permissions10:29
damo22Dori922: on the same partition10:29
Dori922damo22:  so im practicing with seperate partitions so i can encrypt etc...10:29
dr-willisDori922:  you can just set proper modes to stop that10:29
maxiihi all10:30
Dori922dr-willis: damo22: will partitioning give no benifits at all? :s10:30
dr-willisDori922:  i cant really think if any10:30
dr-willisunless they are on diff hds.10:31
dr-willisthen you could see some speed gains i guess10:31
maxiiwats new with ubuntu 11.0410:31
damo22Dori922: partitioning means you can easily back up an encypted partition using dd10:31
lngActionParsnip: so simple. on Gento it would took me 2 or 3 days to get all of the packages compiled, rebuit10:32
Dori922damo22:  that will be handy though :P10:32

aple1ActionParsnip: Sorry to keep bumming you for help, but is there somewhere I need to put the ubuntu .iso or does it only need to load once?10:32
Dori922damo22:  might be worth the extra effort...10:32
damo22Dori922: i shudder at the thought of encrypting a whole partition though10:33
ActionParsnipaple1: put it wherever you want10:33
damo22Dori922: you will suffer a speed loss10:33
aple1So it only needs loaded once?10:33
aple1Then I can delete it?10:33
aple1Or will the iso always need to be fetched?10:33
ActionParsnipaple1: you just tell the virtualbox to use it, be sure you MD5 test the ISO before you use it10:33
Dori922damo22: the partitions are only gonna be ~20gb though and they need to be as secure as possible, i have a i7 8core cpu with 8gb ram so im hoping that keeps speed loss low10:33
ActionParsnipaple1: once the OS is installed, you can delete the instal ISO if you wish10:34

uabn93Well, im outta here10:36
uhm_nvidia-drivers are installed and they are working till now10:37
Hyperbyte!anyone | Badgerpoo10:37
ubottuBadgerpoo: A high percentage of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..." Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.10:37
ActionParsnipuhm_: try:  sudo nvidia-xconfig    then reboot10:37
uabn93can't solve this crud10:37
damo22Dori922: but if you stick with proper unix file permissions and a single partition, it should be easy to get support10:37
uhm_ActionParsnip: but I have no xorg.conf files10:37
uhm_and nvidia-drivers worked liek a charm till now10:37
Dori922damo22: right now its a demo system with nothing bar the server on the whole hard drive so i can trash it as often as possible until i know how to encrypt.. once they are connected to an account and encrypted, im hoping there arnt many ways to go wrong(users will only be able to read and write)10:38
cheenutell me some of the most useful packages10:38
Dori922damo22: its for an online backup system though, i was thinking encrypting the partitions would increase security10:38
Hyperbytecheenu, most useful?  kernel. :)  See here:  http://packages.ubuntu.com/10:39
Hyperbytecheenu, or have a look through the Ubuntu software center.10:39
maalacssl handshake error on Pidgin using sipe: Office Communicator to HP10:39
ActionParsnipuhm_: that command will make one10:40
Hyperbytekvarley, where are you looking for your CPU speed?   cat /proc/cpuinfo  ?10:40
damo22Dori922: one thing i know for sure, if there is a physical disk error, likely you will lose the whole partition rather than just a sector from a file10:40
BadgerpooMy Ubuntu 11.04 PC lost it's global ipv6 address yesterday. It still has a link local address, but is now ignoring the RA packets. tcpdump sees the RA packets arriving, and some other ipv6 traffic on eth0. The network widget has been set to "ignore" and "automatic" but neither work.10:40
kvarleyHyperbyte: In System Monitor and cpuinfo it shows the 2.93GHz speed rather than 4GHz. The output of my cpuinfo can be found here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/683403/10:41
Hyperbytekvarley, /proc/cpuinfo even shows 1.2 ghz.  I'd say there is CPU scaling active on your system (to decrease warmth and power usage of CPU), which ignores the BIOS overclock.10:42
kvarleyHyperbyte: CPU scaling running within Ubuntu or as part of the hardware or something?10:44
damo22Dori922: in my opinion you should chop the remainder of the terabyte in half and use one just for backups of the main one10:44
Dori922damo22: chop as in make primary partitions?10:44
Hyperbytekvarley, which Ubuntu version?10:45
kristoffer_help me i messed up my system by following this guide: http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-to-Install-Linux-Kernel-3-0-on-Ubuntu-11-04-217409.shtml and i got errors so i tried to reboot but it doesent come to the login screen just that Ubuntu loader, and then to some text with no gUI that tells me to login and password, how can i enter gRUB ?10:45
Dori922damo22: im just pasting this convo to my boss now see if he still wants me to partition :P *intern*10:45
kvarleyHyperbyte: 11.04 Desktop 64-bit10:45

Hyperbyte!ot | Cheenu10:46
ubottuCheenu: #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!10:46
Hyperbytekvarley, hrm... not sure actually.  My CPU on 11.04 x86_64 is scaling too, but no idea what part of the OS (assuming for a second it is the OS) is responsible for it.10:47
skplcan someone help me please? i installed gnome-shell but forgot to tell my machine to load the gdm, so it's trying to logon automatically without success10:48
damo22Dori922: then you can backup the MBR as well so you keep the whole partition table in one place, with 4 partitions they can all be primary10:48
Serythmichael_p hey :)10:48
Hyperbytekvarley, I suppose it could be the BIOS as well, if you have some cool 'n quiet feature enabled.  Sorry, no idea anymore.  I don't overclock, so never ran into this.10:49
kvarleyHyperbyte: It's strange isn't it. This computer came with windows 7 on it and that also said the stock speed and not the overclocked one. I'd like to know how to turn scaling off for when I want to encode video or do something cpu intensive. Forums post maybe?10:49
michael_pjust getting the dvd version10:49
Dori922damo22:  and then with permissions ill be able to keep users as only having read/write permissions for their "home" drives(and set quota's to stop overuse?)10:49
kvarleyHyperbyte: I bought the pc as a prebuilt custom system which came overclocked so I guess I'll have to look! Thanks for all the help anyway :)10:49
Hyperbytekvarley, you could try to max out the CPU and see what /proc/cpuinfo reports.10:49
damo22Dori922: correct (home directories)10:49
damo22Dori922: they would all be sharing one /home partition10:50
Hyperbytekvarley, /proc/cpuinfo will always report the current megahertz the CPU is scaled to after "cpu MHz", not the maximum.  It could be that it's scaling it to the overclocked value, while other tools still report the stock information.10:50
Hyperbytekvarley, so by maxing it out and seeing what /proc/cpuinfo says you'll learn what value it's really running at when it matters.10:51
skplis there anyway i can get ubuntu to load the gdm from the terminal instead of trying to login automaticaslly?10:51
kvarleyHyperbyte: All 4 cores run at 2.93GHz when encoding, which is maxed out to the stock value...hmmmm10:52
damo22skpl: do you mean you want to disable gdm from starting at boot, then launch it manually from the console?10:53
kristoffer_please help me i messed up my system by following this guide: http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-to-Install-Linux-Kernel-3-0-on-Ubuntu-11-04-217409.shtml  and i got errors so i tried to reboot and now it doesent come to the login screen just that Ubuntu loader screen and then it freezes, and then to some text with no gUI if i go crazy on the keyboard while the ubuntu startup screen is loading that tells me to login and password, what10:53
kristoffer_should i do now and how can i enter gRUB, like it sais on the guide?10:53
jribkristoffer_: just choose the earlier kernel in grub10:54
kristoffer_jrib how do i enter it?10:54
Dori922dddbmt:  okey so in /home primary partition all users are added and in that partition their own directories are stored(ie user1 has "User1Homedir" with a 20gb disk quota and permissions to only access that folder)..10:54
jribkristoffer_: hold shift during boot10:54
xxzzhello where i can find netbook edition download10:54
Lasers!unr | xxzz10:54
ubottuxxzz: Starting with Ubuntu 11.04, the Ubuntu Netbook Edition is no longer being offered as a separate install as Unity is now standard for all Ubuntu desktop installs.10:54
kristoffer_jrib ok ill try10:54
dddbmtDori922, huh?10:55
xxzzok so i get 32 bit and install it, i trust the same should work with kbuntu then10:55
damo22Dori922: yes10:55
Dori922thanks :D damo22 !10:56
aeplusxxzz, i got 11.04 installed on my mini9 with 4gigs of hd space... it requires some workarounds10:56
ActionParsnipthere is a 3rd party ppa for the old netbook interface if you desire it...10:57
skpldamo22, well what i did was install gnome shell and i know this breaks unity, so what i would like to do is select gnome-shell from the gdm menu buit i have my computer set to login automatically, which it is trying to do unsuccesfuylly right now, is there anyway to load gdm without having started X yet?10:57
damo22Dori922: once you have the partitioning done and grub installed, you should back up the MBR for your server so should you lose the partition table you can recover the /home partition with all their data10:57

ActionParsnipaple1: good11:00
skpldamo22, no, that didnt bring up the login screen11:01
teddyroosebeltis it worth running dist-upgrade for the new 11.10A update?11:01
jribpadi999: try exiv2 if you want something command-line or just use your favorite language's exif library11:01
damo22skp1: check the Xorg logs in /var/log/Xorg...11:01
Dori922damo22: thanks a mil for this :D11:01
skpldamo22, what should i be looking for?11:02
damo22Dori922: no worries11:02
padi999jrib: obviously I need to see the image I am metatagging/renaming while I go through the images11:02
damo22skp1: (EE) or (WW)11:02
jribpadi999: so?11:02
padi999so a commandline tool does not help here11:03
padi999What I need is a program that shows me a picture and editable metadata on the side and the name of the file, too. Then an arrow that sends me to the next picture, simple, right?11:03
jribpadi999: it depends on how you want to do it.  Just offering you options11:03
skpldamo22, i got a fatal server error11:04
padi999This is for ehancing the workflow of the process.11:05
ActionParsnippadi999: shotwell and f-spot allow metadata editing and renaming....11:05
damo22skp1: does the error message fit on one line?11:05
padi999ActionParsnip: ActionParsnip perfect11:05
michael_pubuntu can except all graphics cards cause mine is a xfx 250 gts11:06
skpldamo: xf860-openconsole vt_waitactive failed: interrupted system call11:06
padi999ActionParsnip: Of course a lot of programs provide what I need but I need to have easy access to that. Not having to click through all  menues on every picture11:06
guest34padi what's your interest in metatagging and renaming about11:06
skpldamo22, alli wanna do is load my login screen so i can select gnome-shell as my session11:06
padi999guest34: sorting11:07
guest34that's rather vauge. the reason i ask is because i am very into tagging, semantics and organization.11:08
skpldamo22, when i tried restartingt the gdm it just proceeded to log me in autmatically11:09
padi999guest34: Well, I have different people in every image and I would like to be able to say "show all pictures containing person X"11:09
skplor try to anyw3ay, i cant get in11:09
burgwill ubuntu11.10 come with gnome too? or just unity?11:09
aple1How can I tell if my PC is compatible with Ubuntu 64?11:09
Serythaple1 can you run 64bit applications?11:09
devcalaisHow do I forcefully close an open application? Sort of a CTRL+ALT+DEL method.. ?11:10
guest34yes padi. that's exactly what i want, for like all information oO i am actively working to become set up for this. how committed are you to the endeavor?11:10
ActionParsnipburg: unity will run in gnome. unity is not a DE11:10
tonysanMy server constantly  eats out swap, and then thrashing. I believe it is due to mysql server tuning, how do I detect thrashing in cron?11:10
ActionParsnipaple1: if you are using a Ubuntu guest OS, then you need to see if your CPU will run 64bit guest OSes. Not all 64bit CPUs can do this11:10
burgActionParsnip, i`ve just installed 11.10 beta in virtual machine, and i noticed that i can`t chose to login with gnome 2 (like in 11.04)11:10
padi999guest34: phew, I just started browsing on the topic and I cannot imagine noone ever wanted to do something like this. ^^11:10
BadgerpooFixed my ipv6 issue, when you firewall all ipv6 traffic it doesn't work! :P11:11
ActionParsnipburg: unity-2D replaces Ubuntu Classic which is in Natty11:11
Sidewinder1devcalais, kill "the-process-name".11:11
aple1Seryth: Yeah, but when I tried to fire up an Ubuntu virtualbox, it says, "This kernel requires an x86-64 cpu, but only detected i686. Please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU."11:11
ActionParsnipburg: Oneiric uses Gnome311:11
aple1ActionParsnip: That's probably the problem then.11:11
Serythaple1 it's probably VB set up wrong11:11
aple1Seryth: O rly?11:11
ActionParsnipaple1: then you should check your BIOS has the virtual 64bit guests feature enabled11:11
ActionParsnipaple1: check if your CPU also can perform the function11:12
Serythaple1 have you got the 64 bit version of VB?11:12
damo22skpl: did you get gnome-shell from a ppa?11:12
devcalaisWhats the terminal command to find what your active processes are?11:12
ActionParsnipaple1: I suggest you take the easy road and use 32bit Ubuntu11:12
Serythdevcalais have you got htop installed?11:12
padi999guest34: the suggestion by ActionParsnip to use Shotwell is actually quite good, I'd say. Just need to find the shortcut to "modify tags" and "renaming" and I'm good to go11:12
burgActionParsnip, so it won`t come by default with the classic desktop look? only this new unity?11:12
damo22devcalais: ps11:12
aple1Seryth: Yeah I got the 64bit VBox11:12
skpldamo22,  yes11:12
guest34padi i feel this is one of the most pressing matters to the computer, internet, information, searching, that hasn't been adequately satsified. i am learning programming almost entirely for this very matter11:12
ActionParsnipburg: yes, Unity with effects (via compiz) or unity-2D11:12
Serythaple1 Hm, make sure you set up the virtual machine right11:13
aple1ActionParsnip: I'll take your advice on this one. I don't see what I'd use 64bit for anyway.11:13
burgah, too bad. i don`t like unity at all11:13
devcalaishtop? I'd guess not.11:13
ActionParsnipburg: if you want the classic look, I suggest you install XUbuntu and use that11:13
aple1Seryth: I'm pretty sure I did. Is there anything I should be particularly mindful of to make it 64bit friendly?11:13
guest34padi i request we stay in touch to have more eyes on the matter so to speak11:13
damo22skpl:you could purge the ppa and revert to unity11:13
ActionParsnipburg: or some other DE, you can stil use Gnome based apps in KDE / XFCE / LXDE etc11:13
Serythdevcalais don't worry. Htop is a resources watcher/manager, sort of like win task manager (sudo apt-get install htop)11:13
kristoffer_jrib ok i found grub and tried with all the 3 older kernels that was on the list but it doesent go any longer than the ubuntu startup loader then it says on my screen "no signal" and my screen turns of, its because i uinstalled NVIDIA drivers like it said in the guide right? what can i do now?11:13
skpldamo22, i cant get logged in11:14
Serythaple1 considering I don't use VB, I've got no clue :P. Just use 32 bit ;)11:14
devcalaisSeryth: cheers, I'll give it browse. Time to browse more manuals.11:14
guest34or combine our observations on it11:14
aple1haha dammit I was going to but you kept telling me it was a config problem :D11:14
damo22skpl: do you have network?11:14
jribkristoffer_: can you get to a tty?  Or recovery mode in one of the older kernels?11:14
aple1Wanted to sort that out11:14
aple1Ok, 32-bit'n this11:14
Serythbildramer was here O.o11:14
skpldamo22, im not sure11:15
damo22skpl: from console type ping -c 3 www.google.com11:15
guest34i'm currently working on learning rdf. linking in linux may also have potential. i have only begun to learn linux. i also envision some software for automatically analyzing pages for easier input for tags11:15
ActionParsnipaple1: could use the minimal ISO and install from the web :)11:15
guest34computer vision seems quite primitive, and i am not about to wait until that gets sorted out. is software to more easily tag what you are looking for?11:16
kristoffer_jrib, whats tty? i tried recovery mode and it comes to a screen with alot of text11:16
jribkristoffer_: install the nvidia drivers there11:16
kristoffer_jrib how do i install them?11:16
jribkristoffer_: how did you do it before?  How did you uninstall them?11:17
unicumyet again.. any ideas as to why UBUNTU is not able to connect to an ad-hoc network? (secured or open, doesn't matter) - ewlist wlan0 scan does actually list the network, so does network manager.. but stupuntu won't connect11:17
aple1ActionParsnip: The 32-bit .iso? S'what I'm doin'!11:17
kristoffer_jrib i dissabled it in the ubuntu gui11:18
awise12unicum: stupuntu ?11:18

damo22skpl: shift pageup11:22
fileservercould anyone tell me how to set up a decent nas on ubuntu11:22
ActionParsnipaple1: you can use the 12Mb minimal ISO  which will install using packages over the web. Very cool11:22
skpldamo22, i donts see it anywhere11:23
damo22skpl: should be a line in that file such as11:23

Pieswhen I'm trying "route del" I get "SIOCDELRT: No such process". How i can delete that route?11:25
* awise12 is reading https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Adhoc11:25
th0rPies: using sudo?11:25
Piesrunning as root11:25

damo22Pies: are you sure that route still exists?11:26
aepluspies, is that a valid route?11:26
Piesyeah, route returns it11:26
_rubenroute's depreciated in favor of the 'ip' command .. and one might need to specify the subnetmask as well11:26
ActionParsnipPies: could restart the networking service, see if it helps11:26
damo22Pies: i have experience with some VPN software that stuffs up the routing table under linux11:27
skpldamo22, its not there11:28
PiesActionParsnip: /etc/init.d/networking restart ? was trying that too11:29
ActionParsnipPies: sudo service networking restart      is the new way11:29
damo22skpl: ls /etc/apt/11:30
PiesI should add any params?11:30
damo22skpl: see if theres a separate file with a ppa11:30
szal"service"?  isn't that Fedora?11:30
ActionParsnipPies: should be fine11:30
Piesdamo22: don't have any VPN, only wicd is managing my network, but that shouldn't make me unable to delete route11:31
ActionParsnipszal: possibly11:31
PiesActionParsnip: restart: Unknown instance:11:31
ActionParsnipPies: i see11:31
glebihanszal, "service" is related to upstart, which has been used by ubuntu for a few releases now11:31
szalthe 'upstart way' would be: sudo stop networking && sudo start networking11:31
kristoffer_jrib ok i found grub and tried with all the 3 older kernels that was on the list but it doesent go any longer than the ubuntu startup loader then it says on my screen "no signal" and my screen turns of, its because i uinstalled NVIDIA drivers like it said in the guide right? what can i do now?11:32
daavisis it so hard for Ubuntu creators to make all file supports on audacious. In my case - *.wma. There was also problems with playing *.mkv files but luckily Totem came with support wich worked great. File support problems are very bad thing if the target is windows users as well11:32

damo22skpl: grep -r ppa /etc/apt11:35

jribtrinity: define "screen name"11:35
ubuntu_<ActionParsnip> hope so. LXDE + compiz works AWESOME in Knoppix so inspired from it.11:35

Now I've got hundred of "k" programs, and I don't know who to delete all them at once. Someone can help me? How to delete everything I instaled from kubuntu?12:18

javier_yes, the complete command12:21
damo22how do i disable screensaver permanently? it doesnt seem to honour the settings in the gui settings page12:22
coz_javier_,  let me get the entire command and let you see it  hold on12:22

[-supNow-hello usr13 and actionparsnip: Thanks for your help yesterday I was able to figure it out. So that you guys are aware in case anyone else runs into this issue... In order for windows to format and install on a disk that was previously formatted for ubuntu it has to be the only drive plugged into the system. Strange as it sounds and as little sense it makes it's the only thing that worked.12:33

usr13An inode is a data structure on a traditional Unix-style file system such as UFS. An inode stores all the information about a regular file, directory, or other file system object, except its data and name. When you format a partition, the process assigns just so many inodes.  If you end up with lots and lots of very small files, it's possible to run out of inodes and it will act as if the drive is full, but it is really just out of inodes.12:46

xfce_murdererlucenut: in my case it configured grub automatically13:47
SIFTUxfce_murderer: just dont start a display manager13:47
chriswrTAndriamirado, its a copy of a game iso , and to rephrase that question... once i get the split iso files on the cds would i just copy and paste the files on the cds onto my other computer? if so how would i mount the iso since theres so many of them?13:48
xfce_murdererSIFTU: it turns on on boot, how do I disable it?13:48
SIFTUxfce_murderer: and you are probably thinking of using "startx"13:48
xfce_murdererSIFTU: thanks, I'll remember13:48
SIFTUxfce_murderer: update-rc.d13:48
tdnI have some m4a audio files that are apple lossless codec, I think. How do I play those? Audacious cannot handle play them. I guess I need to install some lib or codec?13:49
TAndriamiradochriswr: so it fully depends of the game. Most of them are protected.13:50
mongychriswr, split -d -b 700M file.iso splitfile13:50
xfce_murdererSIFTU: update-rc.d "???"13:50
Andy80jussi01: hi :)13:51
chriswrTAndriamirado, alright ill just try and see13:51
lucenutI searched bootable usb on the wiki and returned nothing. Just "usb" returns a bunch of stuff that doesn't seem to be about a bootable drive.13:51
mongychriswr, cat splitfile* > file.iso13:51
Stanley00xfce_murderer: I think you should digging more in man upstart and init, it's the first proc start when system startup...13:51
TAndriamiradochriswr: sorry ;-)) (..and you could try mongy's tip ;-)13:52
xfce_murderertdn: do you have restricted areas cidecs installed?13:52
mongychriswr, md5sum the before and after just to verify.  works for me fine tho13:52
chriswrmongy, alright , how would i merge the files back together once i got them on my other computer?13:53
mongychriswr, see cat13:53
chriswrmongy, my other computer is windows  :/13:53
xfce_murderertdn: do you have restricted areas cidecs installed?13:53
xfce_murdererlucenut: it doesn't matter if it's from CD or USB13:54
mongychriswr, split -b 700M file.iso splitfile <then>  cat splitfile* > file.iso13:54
javier_hi: how to install digikam in gnome? do I need all kde stall, like dolphin? can't I make it use nautilus?13:54
chriswrmongy, so the "cat splitfile* > file.iso" works on windows?13:56
MonkeyDustchriswr: mount the Windoze partition on Ubuntu and then merge the files13:56
mongychriswr, oh, I assumed linux13:56
codemagicianim trying to run a backup python script but it bails out because there is a file called .gvfs in my home directory which appears to have user = ? group = ?13:56
Laserscodemagician: Exclude .gvffs13:57
Lasersand trash while you're at it.13:57
ubottuYour GUI file manager's Trash folder is located at ~/.local/share/Trash/ for files moved to trash from your hard disk and .../.Trash-userid/ on external devices for files moved to trash from the device.13:57
ActionParsnipcodemagician: its a special folder, take it out of the scope13:57
codemagicianActionParsnip, who created it?13:57
LasersNautilus's automagically mount stuffs.13:58
MonkeyDustchriswr: or merge the files, then mount the Windoze partition and copy the merged files to that partition13:58
ActionParsnipcodemagician: its where gvfs mounts shares and such13:58
codemagicianActionParsnip, it caused my backups to fail13:58
codemagicianActionParsnip, because it has no user or group associated with it13:58
lightawhy does ubuntu depot still have galileo eclipse instead a newer one like indigo or even helios ?13:59
ActionParsnipcodemagician: remove the folder from the scope and you'll be fine13:59
codemagicianActionParsnip, just rm .gvfs13:59
chriswrMonkeyDust, the problem im having is that when i try to mount the iso file on ubuntu it says that theres no files in it and also its not in iso 9660 , so i used "iat" and it says  "image is broken     this image is not CD image"13:59
mongychriswr, could compress it in nautilus 'compress' and use 7z or something to make volumes, then use 7zip in windows to unpack13:59
MonkeyDustlighta: 'why' is a philosophical question, this is a technical channel13:59
ActionParsnipcodemagician: no or you will make issues13:59
lucenutI still can't find where to start on making a bootable usb stick with 11.0413:59
lucenutGoogle brings up things for 813:59
ActionParsniplucenut: it's the same method13:59
codemagicianActionParsnip, about 10 mins ago ls -l showed "d?????????   ? ?    ?          ?                ? .gvfs"14:00
lightaI meant technically is there a logical reason like stability or you like to make user search more ?...14:00
codemagicianActionParsnip, now it is owned by me in devteam group14:00
ActionParsnipcodemagician: its just a container that gvfs uses to mount stuff, theres no need to back it up and its not technically a folder, just make your script ignore the folder14:00
codemagicianActionParsnip, actually ignore that. its still ? ?14:00
usr13lucenut:  http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download14:01
slsthe idiot is here14:01
Picilighta: have you checked launchpad for bug reports against that package? Perhaps there is a legitimate reason listed there.  I suspect it is because packaging it is a real pain.14:01
tonysanCould somebody provide a simple script: do some job when swap usage is above some threshold?14:01
Laserscodemagician: Yes. You said you have a backup script. Fix it to exclude few folders.14:01
chriswrmongy, that sounds like a good idea , if i compress it with natilius is there somthing i can use on this linux computer to split the compressed file into multiple volumes? or is 7zip for linux also?14:01
tdnxfce_murderer, yes I do.14:02
ActionParsniptonysan: you will be using 'free -m' and grepping and awking til you get the value you want, then performing some logic on the value14:02
tdnxfce_murderer, I have those isntalled.14:02
Picitonysan: Thats not really within the scope of this channel.  Someone in #bash might be able to help you write that, or you'd more likely be looking for a framework that allows you to create jobs based on system properties.14:02
tdnxfce_murderer, which one should make it work?14:02
=== himcesjf1 is now known as himcesjf
tonysanActionParsnip: actually it is the grepping and awking that hinders me ...14:02
tdnxfce_murderer, here is dpkg -l |grep codec: http://paste.adora.dk/P2152.html14:02
mongychriswr, 7zip is available for most if not all14:03
tonysanok, I'll switch to another channel, thanks14:03

engrxyzi hae a root partition and an lvm partition. i installed mysql and transfer the datadir from /var/lib/mysql to the lvm partition. when i do a mysql restore, i found out that the / root partition as well as the lvm partition is growing together. any tips?14:05
Kartagishow do I fix Class PDO not found?14:05
ActionParsniptonysan: $3 prints the 3rd value, you can get free with: $4  and total is $214:05
mongychriswr, for a command it would be 7z a -v700m -mx=0 file.7z file.iso   (if you want no compression, quicker)14:06
ActionParsniptonysan: you can then use bash to perform logic on those values (calculate percentage etc)14:06
tsaknorrishmm... how i can add launchers to unity?14:06

tsaknorrisi dont want to use firefox and i want to replace it with chromium14:07

MonkeyDusttsaknorris: apt-get install chromium-browser14:07
usr13RamtinA: What is it?14:07
ActionParsniptsaknorris: or run the app, when it appears, right click the icon and select 'keep in launcher'14:07
chriswrmongy, alright , is there not a gui for 7zip , i just downloaded it on ubuntu software center14:08
somsipKartagis: Dom you want the #php channel?14:08
MonkeyDustah Unity14:08
tsaknorrisi didnt got any list with right button hmm...14:08
mongychriswr,  used in nautilus14:08
RamtinAtsaknorris:just install chromium,ask you for deafult ;)14:08
Kartagissomsip: they told me to ask here14:08
RamtinAusr13: i can't empty my trash :(14:08
mongychriswr, the compression app that is,  file-roller14:08
ActionParsniptsaknorris: I use chromium, it sits on the bar just fine14:08
Laserschriswr: Use Gnome File-Roller. It's one GUI that will take care of all archives.14:08
tsaknorrisRamtinA, i have it already...i just upgraded to this 11.1014:08
usr13RamtinA: Why not?14:08
ActionParsniptsaknorris: then ask in #ubuntu+1   Oneiric isn't supported here until it is released14:09
usr13RamtinA: Does it give some sort of error?14:09
chriswrmongy, umm how do i use nautilus exactly? kinda noobish at this , do i need to install it also or does it come preinstalled on ubuntu 11.0414:09
RamtinAusr13:  Error while deleting.There was an error deleting Fani.lnk.14:09

usr13RamtinA: Where is Fani.lnk ?14:10
mongychriswr, the file manager.  if you have 7zip installed, select your file.iso and right click compress, 7z will be an optoin14:10
ActionParsnipdo ISO files compress well?14:10
chriswrmongy, oh alright cool14:10
mongyActionParsnip, have done , certain ones14:10
ActionParsnipI doubt it will due to squashfs being used to store the data on the ubuntu ISO14:10
somsipKartagis: wait - just saw this Update: it looks like this is a result of PDO moving into the PHP code; don't try to install PDO using PECL, just skip to the database-specific install (e.g. pdo_mysql).14:11
Stanley00tsaknorris: well, read the manual is a good idea, I remember that there is a prog call help on your ubuntu ;)14:11
RamtinAin my flash USB14:11
mongychriswr, if you use terminal you can do this a lot quicker, with no compression.14:11
RamtinAusr13:in my flash USB14:11

Kartagissomsip: now I need to upgrade PHP14:12
tsaknorristhis is also cool :)14:12
mongychriswr, open it up then.,14:12
somsipKartagis: I'd read around it first if I were you. Thatlast "Update:" was from a site suggesting to apt-get purge php-*, and resintall php-5 before installing PDO14:13

lucenutHow do you resize?14:57
lucenutI selected swap and clicked OK.14:57
usr13lucenut: Look at how much free space you have and decide how to allocte for Linux. Or tell us how much free space you come up with and we will help you decide.  Or, you can let the installer do the automatic allocation.14:57
lucenutThere is ~ 198G free of 250 according to windows.14:58
noobie3when trying to intsall lubuntu 11.4 i get this error http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/822/12314124.jpg/14:58
noobie3any help? :(14:58
lucenutI don't understand this UI though.14:58
usr13lucenut: That is plenty, use the 198G of free space.14:58
edbianlucenut: Free space in windows means NTFS partition space that is not filled with files / folder.  Free in this installer means this part of the drive is not a partition at all.14:58
lucenutOK, I wasn't asked anything about size/space.14:58
edbianlucenut: The fact that windows reports 198Gb free means that you can shrink the windows ntfs partition.14:58
usr13lucenut: And let ubuntu automatically decide and re-partition for itself.14:58
lucenutI chose "swap" and hit OK.14:59
edbianusr13: He can learn if he wants to14:59
edbianlucenut: also you probably have more than 1 'windows' partition  windows 7 usually has like 414:59
lucenutNow in here it shows the 250G partition as Type=swap.14:59
usr13lucenut: Look at the available options and think about it.14:59
edbianlucenut: 1 repair partition, 1 boot partition, and one actual windows data partition is very common14:59
edbianlucenut: How much ram do you have?15:00
usr13lucenut: You only need about 3 or 4G for swap15:00
chmielsenHey, I have a problem. When I'm building program from a source it is later asking me for a lot of files in directories like /etc /var etc. How can I install it, so it would be like from synaptics?15:00
RamtinAusr13: my computer restarted15:00
lucenutRight, there is a ntfs 35MB and a fat16 33MB15:00
edbianlucenut: (that's almost definitely waaaay to much swap15:00
sliptteescomo extract bios dump on ubuntu?15:00
lucenutI didn't mention them because I didn't think they were important.15:00
edbianlucenut:    fat16 33Mb?  <- I have no idea what this is.  It's pretty uselessly small15:01
usr13lucenut: You are correct, those are not important, you can just leave them as is.15:01
lucenutOK, I highlighted the 250G and clicked "Revert" and now instead of swap it says it's ntfs.15:01
edbianlucenut: Be careful here.  It is rather easy to erase your entire windows OS at this stage of the installer.15:01
lucenutThat is why I am asking questions.15:01
usr13lucenut: How much RAM does this PC have?15:01
noobie3http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/822/12314124.jpg/ <-- anyone familiar with this kind of error?15:02
edbianlucenut: just a warning :)15:02
lucenut1G, and that is the max for it.15:02
edbiannoobie3: It's a kernel panic15:02
edbianlucenut: Then your swap should be 1Gb, what's the max for what?15:02
chmielsenHey, I have a problem. When I'm building program from a source it is later asking me for a lot of files in directories like /etc /var etc. How can I install it, so it would be like from synaptics?15:02
noobie3i could read that by myself :) anything else15:02
usr13lucenut: Then 1 or 2G of swap is fine.15:02
lucenutSo here I am again at the Allocate drive space screen. What do I do?15:02
RamtinAmy ram is 512MB , and 58%of that is in use .and just my pidgin is run :D . is it fine?15:02
lucenutWhere do I "get" that swap space?15:03
edbiannoobie3: They're usually very hard to figure out.  Typically they're caused by bad hardware (unless you're using the nightly build kernel)15:03
sproatyhi since using ubuntu 11.04, Nautilus no longer autocompletes in the location bar when SSH'd into a server; any ideas?15:03
edbianlucenut: You create a partition that is type swap on the drive15:03
ActionParsnipRamtinA: probably find most is use by disk caching15:03
tab1293mpd is not used to stream music correct?15:03
ActionParsnipRamtinA: http://www.linuxatemyram.com/15:03
lucenutSo do I take some space from the 250G ntfs?15:03
edbianlucenut: You do that by shrinking partitions until you have some unallocated space, then you right click the unallocated space and create a new (swap) partition that is 1Gb big (1024Mb)15:03

ChousukeRamtinA: as long as you have free RAM left you don't need to pay attention to it15:04
lucenutOK, how do I "shrink" a partition?15:04
edbianlucenut: You have to take space from some partition probably yes15:04
TehAndrewRyanActionParsnip: yes it has been written before, however if i F11 the window i don't get that problem15:04
edbianlucenut: right click it and choose resize15:04
edbianlucenut: If it has a key / lock or a red ! then you won't be able to15:04
lucenutThere is no right-clicking on this installer screen.15:04
ChousukeRamtinA: and most of the time you don't need to even when you have no free RAM left :)15:04
emily_spenceris there a setting i can edit to repair a shaky mouse cursor15:04
ChousukeRamtinA: though with only 0.5GB you can run out if you run too many apps at the same time15:05
lucenutI can highlight the 250G partition and click the "edit" button.15:05
edbianlucenut: then highlight one of the partitions on the drive and use the resize button (perhaps it's called edit in the installer)15:05
lucenutI mean "Change" the button is labelled.15:05
edbianlucenut: You are confusing me.  Your hdd is 250Gb total right?15:05
edbianlucenut: You should have at least 1 partition that is = or < 250Gb15:05
ActionParsniptechnoviking: what desktop environment do you use?15:06
lucenutYes, /dev/sda2 ntfs 249884315:06
lucenutI can highlight it and click "Change".15:06
usr13lucenut: So use about half of that one.15:06
lucenutI don't know how to "use" it. :-(15:07
edbianlucenut: so you want to be editing these partitions (not the entire 250Gb drive)  the partitions each are not 250Gb so don't say things like 'I'm selecting 250Gb and resizing' cause that's not true right?15:07
nhochthow to check infomation about USB3G on ubuntu?15:07

lucenutOK, the 249843 partition.15:08
gabyyi just installed ubuntu desktop, but then i don't know what to do with it. what i should do to use it as production for digital image editing?15:08
edbianusr13: In the installer it's called edit / change15:08
lucenutI thought 250 was a good round for that.15:08
Stanley00gabyy: you can use gimp and/or inkscape to edit digital picture15:08
lucenutThere is nothing on this Allocate Drive Space screen saying "resize" anywhere.15:08
edbianlucenut: it's close but it is confusing because 250Gb would imply you're editing the entire drive (which you're not).  If you did you would be erasing windows completely.15:08
TehAndrewRyanActionParsnip: wtf i'm stuck, i alt+f4'ed spoutcraft, and now my entire primary monitor is white15:09
edbianlucenut: PM me?15:09
gabyyis there no photoshop for ubuntu.15:09
TehAndrewRyanActionParsnip: i can't open a terminal, nor alt+tab to change window15:09
ubottugimp is an advanced image manipulation application for Ubuntu. See http://www.gimp.org for tutorials and more information.15:09
Lasersgabyy: That's linux alternative of photoshop, gimp.15:09
usr13Oh ok. lucenut As edbian points out, the option is edit / change.  You want to resize the parttion, (shrink it to a smaller size).15:09
Stanley00gabyy: you can install photoshop via wine or playonlinux, but I dont recommend that15:09
EskimoBobhi can someone please tell me what pkg. installs /boot/System.map /boot/abi and /boot/vmcoreinfo files15:10
gabyyokay, think i'm gonna give it a try. is it in the apt?15:10
lucenutusr13. I highlight the 249843 partition and click "Change" and get an "Edit a partition" dialog. Nothing about resizing here.15:10
Stanley00gabyy: yes, try finding it on Ubuntu software center15:10
gabyythanks all.15:10
usr13lucenut: If you fish around there, you should find out how to resize (shrink) the largest partion in order to create enough free space for the Linux install.15:11
RamtinAgabyy: there isn't photoshop.but you can use gimp15:11
usr13lucenut: Have you already allocated some space for swap ?15:12
lucenutI set the 249843 to swap and was told that was wrong.15:12
lucenutSo I reverted it back.15:12

EskimoBobKingsy: read a book15:13
KingsyEskimoBob: reading a book is hardly a game :P15:13
usr13lucenut: Ok, well as I said, if you fish around there on that screen, you should find out how to set aside some free space for the linux install.  Shrinking the largest partition is basically what you are going to do.15:13
EskimoBobKingsy: read a good book and it better than a game15:13
gabyyRamtinA: okkie dookie. let me familiarize myself with gimp. thanks15:14
EskimoBobam I on the wrong channel?15:14

EskimoBobso where can I get the answer to my question? what *buntu pkg. installs /boot/System.map /boot/abi and /boot/vmcoreinfo files15:15
usr13lucenut: Choose that largest partition, right-click on it, and you should come up with a context menu that offers resize as an option.15:15
EskimoBobPici: this is exactly what I am looking for :)15:15
lucenutusr13 there is no context menu right-click in this installer screen.15:16
