mitchellis there a way to scan everything?00:03
usr13mitchell: scan what?00:03
yeatsmitchell: sudo clamscan00:04
usr13mitchell: What for?  Are you using your PC as a fileserver?00:04
th0rmitchell: check the clamscan man page00:04
usr13mitchell: Or are you doing this just for the protection for this one system?00:04
usr13!virus | mitchell00:05
ubottumitchell: Antivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus00:05
usr13mitchell: I think you have saddled a dead horse.00:06
mitchellusr13, yes as a matter of fact i am. i would like to scan all files/programs/etc for maximum protection. but i also use this for personal use. and i understand it is very hard to get a virus using linux operating systems, i just want to be on the safe side00:06
usr13mitchell: Don't bother.  You are safe.  Linux is not victum to virus problems.00:06
mitchellNot only this, but I am (unfortunately) under the same partition as windows. just want to be sure00:07

mitchelluser13: ok thank you00:09
usr13faint545: The Software Center00:09
faint545usr13, i couldnt find it00:09
usr13faint545: Or synaptic package manager00:10
faint545usr13, what is the pacakge name?00:10
usr13faint545: sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound00:10
mitchellfaint545: just search for adobe and you will get numerous search results. but the plug in only works for mozilla firefox00:10
Stanley00mitchell: are you sure? It work on chromium too,00:11
mitchellstanley00: did it, i though it had it pre-installed00:11
usr13mitchell:  I think  Stanley00 is correct, it also works on chromium00:12
mitchellusr13: hmm did not know that00:12
usr13mitchell: Well, it may be pre-installed. YOu could be right about that, not sure.00:12
faint545usr13, flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound will also install a flash player? i dont want to overwrite the flash plugin i have installed for firefox00:13
mitchellOh. But Stanley00, did you have to download it for it? Or no?00:13
Stanley00mitchell: I just run sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restrict-extra and wait...00:14
usr13faint545: I'm sorry, what was your original question?00:14
Stanley00mitchell: or apt-get install flashplugin-installer if you just need flash plugin00:14
mitchellStanley00: Oh I see. You didn`t get it from the Software Center?00:15
michael_pwould you say 500 files for kde00:15

mitchellagoole22: what kind of laptop?00:16
urlin2uagoole22, the tap pad right?00:16
maletapfcis there any other application except alsa mixer for setting up sound card and specifying what every jack should work. (I need to set jack for microphone to send sound on my speakers)00:16

domino14so i'm on an AWS instance and it seems my CPU usage has suddenly started to nearly hit 100%. But when i do a "top" i never see the processes get any higher than about 40-50% cumulatively00:17
urlin2uagoole22, I have a aspire one the touch[ad works fine on mine it's just cumbersome I use a mouse00:17
mitchellagoole22: thats why, i had an acer, it sucked. they make it to be affordable. their hardware is horrible.00:17
agoole22well I never had troubles, and the pad works fine,00:18
agoole22seems that sometimes it just locks up, for no reason00:18
agoole22I'm thinking a package issue, maybe something broken ?00:18
mitchellagoole22: how old is it?00:18
agoole22mitchell: 4 months00:18
maletapfcis there any other application except alsa mixer for setting up sound card and specifying what every jack should work. (I need to set jack for microphone to send sound on my speakers)00:18
mitchellagoole22: it very welll could be a package issue if it is only 4 months. have you dr00:19
usr13agoole22: Does it totally lock up?00:19
mitchelldropped it*00:19
agoole22mitchell: never dropped00:19
agoole22usr13: yaeh, once it locks, its totally locked up00:19
usr13agoole22: Test your ram00:19
mitchellagoole22: for how long?00:19
agoole22usr13: I can move it, but I simply can't click on anything00:19
usr13!memtest | agoole2200:19
urlin2uagoole22, are you maxing the ram when this happens the aspire comes with only 1 gig ram.00:20
agoole22mitchell: once it locks, until reboot,00:20
mitchellagoole22: for how long does it lock up for?00:20
agoole22no I have 6 gigs of ram00:20
faint545also, are u able to uninstall a program if you installed it with a .bin file?00:20
agoole22never came close to maxing the ram00:20
usr13agoole22: test your ram   memtest00:20
agoole22usr13: you think memtest ?00:20
agoole22usr13: ok, I will check it,00:20
agoole22usr13: why would the ram prevent me from clicking anything ?00:20
usr13agoole22: May or may not be RAM memory problem but that is first thing I would check.00:21
mitchellagoole22: it could never hurt, although, ido believe it is a hardware issue, not package00:21
agoole22ok, Ill go and do a memtest00:21

[Justm3]also, apparently ubuntu is not accepting ANY function key actions. which is probably why it is not accepting the wireless00:32

urlin2u[Justm3], lspci will list a lot including those.00:33
urlin2u[Justm3], look in additional drivers you probably need a grapgics driver to begin with.00:34
[Justm3]urlin2u, i have a nvidia geforce gtx graphics card, if the sticker is right.00:34

Verto2Is reinstall an option, mssever?  Might be the fastest way to fix everything at once if you can backup anything important.01:09
msseveradamwbb: I recommend using GParted from the live CD to resize your partition. Then, you can create a new partition for Ubuntu01:09
ChogyDandevcalais: try this:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PortableDevices/iPhone01:09
urlin2uadamwbb, as suggested if you do not have 4 primary partitions already, the XP can be shrunk and a extended, for ubuntu put in.01:10

Verto2We've evolved beyond the need for something as primitive as a "phone," devcalais.  ;)01:10
msseverVerto2: I'm not sure, since it isn't my machine. Of course, I'd first have to check from the live CD, which would go a long way towards determining whether this problem is hardware or software. Unfortunately, I'll have to wait on that since my tools are at home.01:11

msseverVerto2: Thanks for your help. It seems that at this time no further troubleshooting is possible01:12

chris215i need help with clam antivirus, is anyone available?01:13
szal!ask | chris21501:14
ubottuchris215: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)01:14
msseverchris215: Just ask your question and see. :)01:14
Verto2clam antivirus?01:14
chris215szal: following the directions from this page :   https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ClamAV     i went to01:16
chris215http://clamtk.sourceforge.net/ and downloaded it01:16
bluebomberWhen I make changes to /etc/network/interfaces, what exactly do I need to do to make the changes take effect?01:16
chris215but i dont know where to extract the tar to01:16
msseverbluebomber: HAve you tried sudo service networking restart?01:17
chris215i already have clamav but i want to install the gui clamtk, the one from sourceforge, i just dont know where to extract the file to01:17
szalchris215: I think 'sudo apt-get install clamtk' would be leagues easier than that01:17
bluebombermssever: I do try that, but that particular service doesn't work for me: "restart: Unknown instance: "01:17
msseverchris215: If there's an Ubuntu package, it'll be MUCH easier01:17
bluebomberI always have to /etc/init.d/networking restart it for some reason (do you know why?).01:18
msseverchris215: is the tarball a source package01:18
chris215mssever: i know, but i wanted to get the more updated version, as suggested on the ubuntu help page, which told me that to do so i should go to clamtk.sourceforge.net and obtain it there01:19
mitchellzoray: hola que pasa?01:19
szal!es | zoray, mitchell01:19
ubottuzoray, mitchell: 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.01:19
zorayhola mitchell01:19
chris215mssever: it's called clamtk-4.34.tar.gz01:19
chris215i dont know what a source package is i am sorry01:20
Verto2More important question is, what do you need av for anyway, chris215?  :)01:20
urlin2uchris215, what are you using it for?01:20
zorayyo quiero habla español01:20
szalchris215: no idea what advantage you think you'll get from that..  the virus definitions are updated independently anyway01:20
chris215i run dual boot with windows 7 and was told it would be a good idea to have it01:20
msseverchris215: Of course, you're free to install the raw package, but if you install stuff outside the package manager, be sure you know what you're doing or else you could end up with a messed up system01:20
pidzhello ubuntu! :)01:20
msseverchris215: clamav won't help your Windows 7 install01:21
|NeXuS|im going crazy im using Ubuntu 10.10 and when a video crashs a video player it loses all video playback in any app01:21
Verto2Do you mount the windows partition most of the time?01:21
msseverchris215: for that, you need a Windows antivirus01:21
chris215thats why i came here, i fugured someone here would know where you are supposed to extract the tar to01:21
szalmssever: clamav actually checks mostly for Windows viruses01:22
th0rmssever: clam IS a windows antivirus....a virus is a virus01:22
msseverchris215: Anyway, I'm assuming the tarball you have is a source tarball. So, you can extract it anywhere01:22
zorayhey i have a problem with my cam of notebook01:22
Verto2I mean it's possible something could install something nasty on the win partition while running ubuntu if the win part is mounted, but.. why?01:22
msseverszal: th0r I meant one that runs under windows01:22
zorayplease help me01:22
msseverzoray: Just ask your question01:22
Stanley00zoray: can you be more specs?01:22
th0rmssever: no, you can use clamtk in ubuntu to scan the windows partition or folders01:22
=== simpleirc162 is now known as berlusconibest
urlin2uchris215, bitdefender and avast have linux use AV that have the windows virus in their updates, and can be used to scan windows ,linux, and external stuff.01:22
msseverchris215: to extract a tarball: tar xzvf tarball_name.tar.gz01:23
msseverchris215: then cd to the newly-created directory and look for a README or INSTALL file with instructions01:24
Verto2chris215:  Just be careful, make backups of critical data, and overwrite any executable code system-wide frequently.  ;)01:24
zoraymy cam watching in internet, but no in messenger01:24
|NeXuS|[0x1dd1a30] xcb_xv generic debug: cannot put image: X11 error 2 = error i get in vlc when i lose video01:24
Verto2Honestly, it's faster than using av.01:24
msseverchris215: But again, unless you know what you're doing, you shouldn't do this unless you're willing to risk a broken system01:24
zoraypleaqse help me01:25
msseverzoray: Can you give more details?01:25
th0rchris215: I think the repo has clamtk 4.33, that should be new enough. You would save yourself some headaches by using a deb package for install01:26
chris215mssever: how do i avoid a broken system?  and by broken system do you mean like it will be cool with a reinstall or like the computer is a paperweight01:26
surskittyhow do I make the monitor shut off a minute after the screen blanks instead of however long it takes by default?  using 10.10, if it matters01:26
msseverchris215: A reinstall would fix things01:26
chris215th0r: ill give it a shot01:26
chris215mssever: ok01:26
zoraymy cam, that i have in the notebook runs on the regular network, but does not connect with messenger01:26
Stanley00zoray: which messenger are you using?01:27
zorayi have 201:27
pidzI would just like to ask what is the difference between Unity and Gnome2. Most importantly, what is the function of that vertical bar on the right?01:27
chris215th0r: synaptic has version 4 of clamtk?  or ubuntu software center01:27
msseverchris215: to avoid a broken system, you have to make sure that manually-installed software stays up to date and doesn't conflict with other stuff. Using a package manager handles this automatically, but as soon as you move away from the package manager, you have to keep track of things yourself. And the package manager won't know about what you've fdone manually01:27
zorayemesene and aMSN01:28
urlin2usurskitty, screensaver time and power screnn shut off coordinate.01:28
chris215while we are on that subject, what are the advantages of using the computer janitor?01:28
chris215do you guys use it?01:28
th0rchris215: clamtk is just a frontend to clam, so the version you use isn't going to be critical. You want to keep clam updated, but the gui isn't critical. You might install that first, and if it doesn't fit your needs you can uninstall and pursue the later version01:28
msseverpidz: The vertical bar on the *left* is like a dock where you can launch programs and manage windows01:28
Verto2pidz:  Unity is a similiar concept to Aero in win7, and the bar on the left is basically a task bar with some animations and some neat features01:28
urlin2uchris215, none use bleachbit.01:29
Verto2Or right, wherever it might be01:29
mitchellchris215: no i dont. I havent, i barely know what is used for01:29
pidzThank you very much mssever & Verto201:29
chris215urlin2u: bleachbit as opposed to computer janitor?01:29
Stanley00zoray: please wait a minute, I haven't used that 2 before01:29
zoraymy cam, that i have in the notebook runs on the regular network, but does not connect with messenger01:29
zorayi use emesene and aMSN01:29
urlin2uchris215, yes, computer janitor can wipe apps if you don't know how to use it.01:30
msseverzoray: What do you mean by "regular network"? Google Video chat? Empathy?01:30
mitchellIs there a defragmenter in Ubuntu?01:30
CyberSixanyone know the proper way to add ipv6 hosts to a users db in pure-ftpd? 'pure-pw usermod user -r [ipv6:host]' breaks01:30
chris215can the mintmenu be installed in ubuntu?01:31
surskittyurlin2u: not sure what you said, but found it while looking again; thank you.01:31
chris215because i really liked that01:31
Stanley00mitchell: you wont need that ;)01:31
mssevermitchell: If there's one, it isn't well-known. At any rate, the ext filesystems don't become too fragmented01:31
pidzmitchell: i don't think you need to defragment ubuntu, or any linux flavor for that matter01:31
zorayno none01:31
urlin2uchris215, be careful about asking questions here in lieu of problems as a new user or ever the answers you get may be biased or just wrong.01:31
zorayi dont' know01:31
|NeXuS|is there a big dif in 9.04 to 10.04 ?01:31
Verto2Depends on the fs, mitchell.  But if you're using ext (the default) you really don't need to worry about it.01:32
idlemind324nexus 10.04 is still supported01:32
zoraymy notebook have a problem with procesator01:32
mssever|NeXuS|: There's a major user interface difference. Google it for details01:32
|NeXuS|i cant keep video play back working in 10.1001:32
mitchellmssever:stanley00:pidz: thanks, i am just looking for ways to optimize my system because i am running windows as well on this as a dual boot and since then, i have noticedd my sytem is offly slow01:32
|NeXuS|i was thinking of back tracking maybe01:32
urlin2u|NeXuS|, backtrack is for geeks, and not supported here.01:33
zorayhowever, i cab use my camera web sites01:33
mssevermitchell: In my experience, the number one thing that slows down a linux sstem is memory issues01:33
|NeXuS|no back track as in try a older ubuntu hehe01:33
zoraybut, no in the messengers01:33
mitchellI agree entirely, i just need to figure out a way where i can move my ubuntu data onto a separate partition so i can delete windows and not have to go thgrough and re install ubuntu01:34
zorayis the cam that is built into the notebook01:35
mssevermitchell: If you're feeling adventureous, you could use cp -a to copy your stuff across, manually fix up your new /etc/fstab, then go to a live CD and update grup to point to your new install01:36
zorayplease help me01:36
mssevermssever: But I can't guarantee success, so be sure to have backups01:36
pidzmssever: can mitchell just delete the windows partition and resize the ubuntu partition to occupy the whole disk?01:36
msseverpidz: mitchell If the goal is simply to delete Windows, that would be the easiest option01:37
zoraymy oprative system is ubuntu01:37
ketnosHey, I just installed ubuntu 11.04 on a coby netbook and the touchpad doesn't work01:37
mitchellI was going to try something like that, my only dillema is that my netbook doesnt have a cd drive and i havent figured out to properly format a flash disk and boot off that to use as a live cd. and i cant just delet windows first becaue i am useing wubi. otherwiwse i would have done that in a heartbeat01:38
ketnosanything I can do to debug that?  I looked in /proc/bus/input/devices and didn't see anything01:38
idlemind324so ubuntu 10.04 lts with virtualbox 4.1 ... i have an ubuntu 10.04 lts server vm running inside it captures all keys but shift + 9 "(" and shift + 0 ")" any ideas?01:38
zoraymy cam no works01:38
msseverzoray: If you want people to help you, try this: First, put everything on ONE line. Then, describe your issue in detail (in one line). Then, if someone knows how to help you, they will. Posting on multiple lines is hard to read01:39
mitchellzoray: probably just need an updated driver compatible with ubuntu01:39
bbbbbbuggggafter enabling Flash's Hardware Acceleration I have a image in background from youtube video01:39
bbbbbbugggghow can I fix this without relogin01:39

mitchellmssever: my last message was to you by the way (forgot to title it) XD01:40
zorayi am women technology that knows no01:40
|NeXuS|is there a big diff in 10.04 to 10.10 ?01:41

bbbbbbugggg|NeXuS|: did u install restricted extras01:43
mitchellmssever: ok i have formatted it, now what do i do?01:43
mssevermitchell: I haven't used Wubi, but if Wubi presents Ubuntu with what appears to be a partition, you can use dd to copy that file to a raw (unformatted) partition. Then, after mounting it and fixing fstab, you shold be good to go01:43
|NeXuS|yeah i did01:43
bbbbbbuggggzoray: what is your question?01:43
szalzoray: no swearing please, not even in other languages than English01:43
|NeXuS|i can play videos then media play back quits01:43

bbbbbbugggg|NeXuS|: install vlc player01:44
|NeXuS|vlc is the same01:44

cornellGood evening.  I use up to three computers at a time.  My normal desktop workstation (ubuntu), my laptop (ubuntu/windows) and my company's laptop.  I use headphones instead of speakers.  I've been wanting the sound from all computers to go to the one set of headphones, but the only equipment I found is relatively fancy and expensive mixers.  I just want to listen to the internet radio, and hear warning beeps and stuff from the others.01:58
MonotokoPici, damn! The file it's trying to overwrite is owned by root >< sorry about that... :$01:59
immysl_how can i start a small open source project to further develop a salary system for ubuntu?01:59
PiciMonotoko: ah!02:00
cornellI had a thought.  The workstation as a mic jack in the front and back.  System / preferences / sound shows mic 1 and mic 2.  Could I take the headphone output from the other two and plug them into the mic jacks?02:00
PiciMonotoko: My next step would have been to test whether you needed to set DISPLAY, but that didn't seem right to me.02:00

cubevanbabyhey there, I have a problem and hoping someone could help. I installed ubuntu 11.04 on an aspire revo and I have no sound. I performed all updates and no dice. anyone able to help?02:03
cubevanbabyI should probably also note that I went in and tried a number of configurations in the sound menu muted and unmuted as some forums suggest02:05
pidzcubevanbaby: i would think that you have to install proprietary drivers for your audio to work02:05
maumI cannot see the menubar and sidebar in ubuntu 11.04. what should I do?02:05
immysl_idlemind324: it's a system that helps small scale businesses to manage the salaries of their employees. i need to further develop it though, but would like to make it an open source app.02:05
idlemind324immysl_ you could place the project on sourceforge, google code or github02:06
idlemind324immysl_ you would still need to promote it02:06
HisRoyalFreshnesI got Natty recently, first time on Linux, wondering if there's any way to make the taskbar on the side auto-hide02:06
cubevanbabypidz: how would I do that? I went into the hardware manager and installed proprietary hardware drivers but it only caught video02:06
immysl_ah thanks for giving me some clues. :) anyway the code might not be real good cos i'm not an expert at programming yet. so it won't have a negative impact on the project right?02:08
idlemind324immysl_ it's the opposite in open source02:08
idlemind324immysl_ you can't be afraid to release your code because of quality. open source projects are so efficient / secure / high quality because of the number of eyes that look at the code02:09

BashI can't really find a good guide to directly install Ubuntu onto a pendrive, is it very different from having a live ubuntu on usb?02:41
edbianmeway: to help you 'use it'  the OS is already handle-ing it for you so you are 'using' it02:41
mewayBash: no02:41
intmedxangua: qin: found the package which contains add-apt-repository command it is contained in python-software-properties. But i can't install it http://pastebin.com/xi7Qh11y02:41
mewayedbian explain?02:41
urlin2uBash, a full install?02:41
Bashmeway: Thanks.02:41
mewayBash: no problem02:42
Pyro_KillerBash: get 2 pendrives, screw out the hdd in you computer, make it install on the usb with mbr and all, screw hdd back in, bott from pendrive when you feel like it02:42
edbianmeway: There is some physical memory on the system.  (your ram) the OS knows about this memory and creates this pretend 'virtual memory' in which is puts stuff.  This helps it simply the task of making sure one program can't talk to another and programs can't read OS data.02:42
urlin2uBash, a direct install if full is diferent then a live cd.02:42
Pyro_KillerBash: ive done so before and i intend to do it again02:42
JZApplesIs anyone aware of a way to have nautilus keep the folder highlighted when you move forward and backward between folders?  For example if I go into a folder from a long list of other folders and then click the back button, i would like to have the folder that i just went into highlighted so i know where i was.02:42
Bashurlin2u: Yeah, so I can install programs etc on it, I thought the "persistant" part you choose was that but I guess I was wrong02:42

BashPyro_Killer: You mean get a live usb on one pendrive and then install on the other one, without a hdd in ofcourse?02:43
mewayedbian: what would increasing this virtual memory do?02:43
FroyoSharkwildgoose, no hang on02:43
Pyro_KillerBash: easiest and safest way, imo02:44
FroyoSharkHDA ATI SB02:44
edbianmeway: Well you see virtual memory can be bigger than physical ram.  To make up this space difference the OS uses the harddrive (swap partition).  Increasing virtual memory would mean you have more swap partition.02:44
BashPyro_Killer: What's the biggest difference? Sorry, a little rusty.02:44
intmedJZApples: i am using nautilus in fedora 15 and i have do nothing it is working for me bu default02:44
urlin2uBash, the persistent is a casper-rw file that fills up and can't be emptied, if you have a thumb of 8 or more gigs and don't want it for installing a full install is a better choice in my opinion, it can be used as you h=would a HD install.02:44
JZApplesintmed, I am using Ubuntu 11.04 and it is not.  Is that a known bug I wonder...02:44
edbianmeway: What are you trying to do?02:44
Pyro_KillerBash: well, its like you installed it on a hdd, but its a pendrive, to cahnge between hdd os and pendrive os, is just a bios setting02:45

BashPyro_Killer: Gotcha, just not clear about what's the advantage against using a live pendrive?02:45
urlin2uBash, no you just loose all the updates your abck to the original ISO.02:46
ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.02:46
squidlyI cant get the 11.04 host to connecto to the cluster with two 10.10 nodes02:46
Bashurlin2u: But when I reboot I still have my changes saved and programs installed?02:46
edbianmeway: messing with virtual memory would require changing the kernel and basically having a M.S. level knowledge of O.S. optimization and an in-depth knowledge of the kernel.  The easiest way for you to increase performance is to get more ram, decrease the amount of programs you're running, or get a faster processor02:46
BashIrssi and my background stayed atleast.02:46
urlin2uBash, not if you remove the casper-rw02:46
Pyro_KillerBash: live os'es doesnt save your files, installed programs or settings, this way it does02:46

urlin2uguser_freeware, where the desktop?02:48
robertzaccourguser_freeware: right click02:48
guser_freewareurlin2u: yes02:48
Bashurlin2u: The mainly use for the pendrive is to help people with their destroyed windows drives and I thought it would be good to both be familiar with my setup and have the programs at hand that might be needed.02:49

guser_freewareokay urlin2u i right clicked now what02:49
HisRoyalFreshnesHe's talking about his ability to computers02:49
JZApplesguser_freeware, lol, skills to pay the bills.  Leet hacker.  Uhhh, guru....etc. etc. etc.02:50
zykotick9robertzaccour, it's up to you.  personally i run 64bit on an eeepc " 'cause it can", but in general if you have less then 4GB memory 64bit is kinda a detriment in many key areas02:50
robertzaccourzykotick9: detriment how? as in slower?02:50
guser_freewareHisRoyalFreshnes: oh02:50
urlin2ubase_, if you have a big enough thumb you can use a multil;oad app, I have a 16 gig that has bitdefender, W7, natty, oneric, puppy, maverick and other ISO's02:50
intmedJZApples: try sudo apt-get update nautilus02:50
zykotick9robertzaccour, it's a complicated explanation, but 64bit uses more memory compared to 32bit...02:50
pidzrobertzaccour 64 bit allows you to take advantage of having more memory02:50
cubevanbabyhey me again. still trying to get the sound to work. got some help to figure out my card and found and installed the drivers then I checked every setting to test... muted and un muted no dice02:51
robertzaccourzykotick9: so 64 bit would be less efficient? how come the laptop came with 64 bit windows 7?02:51
urlin2uguser_freeware, right click choose change desktop background02:51
JZApplesintmed, E: The update command takes no arguments02:51
zykotick9robertzaccour, the actual "detriment" however, comes with the slight compatibility issues in running 32bit only programs02:52
HisRoyalFreshnescubevanbaby: are you getting internet sound but nothing else?02:52
guser_freewareurlin2u: ok, i chose one. but now it looks the same02:52
zykotick9robertzaccour, it's MUCH MORE efficient if you have more the 4+ GB memory ;)02:52

HisRoyalFreshnesYou're in deeper shit than I am02:53
qinJZApples:  inotifywait -m -r --format '%:e %f %T' --timefmt '%H:%M:%S' ~ (make sure your system is quiet, so you could see if nautilius write somwhere, try same for /tmp)02:53
HisRoyalFreshnesJust saying02:53
urlin2uguser_freeware, you can also use almost any background you want like a picture you have, tinker with it I suspect your not clicking a new image if not changing.02:53
zykotick9robertzaccour, in "most" areas and over all, probably yes.  if you're doing encoding probably no02:53
qinJZApples: sudo apt-get update && sudo apr-get install --reinstall nautilus02:54
cubevanbabywell thanks for linkage but not... like helpful thanks anyways02:54

guser_freewareurlin2u: no, i DID click on a new image, but it dint load on my background of my desktop02:54
zykotick9robertzaccour, 64bit is faster in certain areas, but there is more overhead in addressing big memory ranges (BUT, the fact that you can use big memory efficiently makes it the new standard)02:54
HisRoyalFreshnesI was mainly wondering if we were having the same problems, so we could kill two birds at the same time02:55

cubevanbabyit should be fine for that nice and fast just dont try to watch anything03:08

ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot03:15

zykotick9Guest77188, i'm a little hesitant with this as your question isn't 100% clear.  If you've enabled the root account and simply want to disable it, I think you could try "sudo passwd -l root"03:30

stiltzkinChogyDan: Yeah I might not even be in the right channel but you guys are usually pretty helpful with this kind of thing and it relates to Ubuntu - kind of. Basically I want to know if anyone knows of a parallel implementation of LZMA, particularly decompression. I have a 36GB LZMA-compressed file I need to extract, but as it stands now unlzma uses only 1 of my 8 available CPU cores to do the decompression. I want to know if there's some03:48
cubevanbabyno offense I understand this is out of the goodness of your hearts but spending 4 days trying to get sound to work is not my idea of novice user usability03:49
xanguacubevanbaby: you can get paid support from canonical03:49
Guest77188so is there another solution03:49
xangua!attitude | cubevanbaby03:50
ubottucubevanbaby: The people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines03:50
stiltzkinI was looking at fsarchiver, which has support for SMP compression/decompression and LZMA, but it looks like only when encapsulated in its own .fsa file format, it doesn't decompress plain archives03:50
cubevanbabyI covered off that this was a volunteer effort03:51
stiltzkinAlso 7zip supposedly has support for both of those things, but only in the Windows version <_<03:51
kwixsonTrying to set up VLC to stream my webcam on the home network.03:52
cubevanbabymy attitude reflects someone who is fed up because people who said they would help arent and people arent telling me they dont have answers so I asked for paid support especially since there are so many sound issues experienced by many. that is fair03:52
ChogyDancubevanbaby: you are correct.  You may have better luck filing a bug report, where experts might get a better fix03:52

|Justm3|dr_willis: well, i tried wubi cuz EVERY other linux distro seemed to reject my monitor [2000x1000 px] and my wifi... the wubi worked JUST fine for those :|04:46
amircxcan you paste again the url that explains how to do the mount04:46
ssfdre38how can i check how much space im using on my server?04:47
Atharvadr_willis : Great work..keep it up...Inspired by you..Thanks..:)04:47
cubevanbabyis this part of the helpful newbie user community? [00:43] <zHammeRz> dude, your a fucking asshole...fuckiing noob04:47
dr_willisdrivets should be udentical justm304:47
cubevanbabyis it any wonder that I am frustrated?04:47
dr_williswuni justsboots differently04:47
|Justm3|dr_willis: the other linux distros didnt have them by default tho...04:47
rwwcubevanbaby: I believe you're familiar with /ignore. Quoting inappropriate comments in the channel only inflames matters.04:48
htmlcubevanbaby,  i here,04:48
dr_williswhat video chipset?04:48
cubevanbabyso I am supposed to just endure that jesus04:48
|Justm3|nvidia GEFORCE GTX?04:48
dr_willisdifferent distris can gave diff verons if drivers04:48
rwwcubevanbaby: No, you're supposed to ignore it. I can't ban someone from the channel for what boils down to your word vs theirs, so there's not much I can do.04:49
dr_willismore specufic chipset. gtx us a common term i think04:49
|Justm3|idk D:04:49
dr_willisnvida works fine for my 4 machines04:49
cubevanbabyyou know, this is why people are afraid to adopt04:50
zHammeRzApologies, figured I would take it PM since they have been working on it for a while and it would save the channel some spam..my mistake lol04:50
cubevanbabyI am frustrated because for the past 3 days nobody even responded to me in here04:50
dr_williscubevanbaby:  no its not.  please stick to support.04:50
cubevanbabythen I ask nicely no response04:50
rwwcubevanbaby: As you've been told, #ubuntu is for technical support. Ranting about how you're not getting any just contributes to making the channel less usable for everyone else who is also seeking support.04:50
dr_willisif no one knows then they dont know04:50
cubevanbabybut its cool for people to cuss me out tell me to install windows and $%^& myself04:51
dr_williscould be alsa has no supporr for the chipset.04:51
dr_williscould be it may just work in the next release also.04:52
htmlcubevanbaby,  i here, , and i dont want you to do any of that04:52
|Justm3|dr_willis: but can i be assured that since wubi worked *out of the box*, 11.04 will work JUST the same *right out of the box*?04:52
cubevanbabythank god, an answer04:52

|Justm3|im giving up til tomorrow... which is technically in 4 minutes, but im referring to the 16 hours from now tomorrow xD04:57
cubevanbabythanks but no thanks all. after the amount of attitude Ive endured and the lame level of cussing me out that it came to, I will not be using ubuntu any longer. you guys are mean as hell jerks. I get that you do this for free but jesus christ its like you're the big bullies and I'm the stupid noob. I dont get why you guys have to be like that.04:57

celldeeGhostWolf: Did you resolve your problem? If not, I was thinking that you could mount your Vista drive and copy the file over that way.05:13
AlessonZaireHello jessie_05:13
ssfdre38Valder, thanks that worked05:13
permittivityyou don't need the -k, though.05:13
permittivityjust df --total will do the trick05:13
permittivityif you just want the final answer:05:13
permittivitydf -k | tail -105:13
Valderno problem. What permittivity said works too.05:13
permittivityif you just want the percentage:  df --total | awk '/total/  { print $5 }'05:14
permittivitythat's all05:14
permittivitynext in line, please. lol05:14
SIFTUpermittivity: FYI --total doesnt work with nfs mounts05:14
ValderHelp me! lol05:14
permittivityah, good point.  you're very right.05:14
permittivityhmm, you need  to know it on NFS stuff, too?05:15
ValderI need to setup this Print server to work with windows.05:15
permittivitythought that was an easy question.05:15
SIFTUpermittivity: lol I didnt ask the question.. just pointing it out.. as it will count multiple mounts to the same device05:15
dr_willisValder:  i just install samba. and set cups to share my printer and they work with windows. worked for years ;)05:16
permittivityvalder.  cups can be a pain but I suggest you install the cups web interface.  hmm, what's the nifty little "program" called.  it's really a huge help in getting cups + samba to work with windows.05:16
dr_williscups web is installed by default05:16
ValderThat's what it said at ubuntu wiki, but I look for the printer in windows and nothing..05:16
xuser1this is the result http://paste.ubuntu.com/684101/05:16
Valderis the anyway to completely remove Samba? Configurations and everything?05:17
dr_willisValder:  enter the ip#. dont rely on samba ir host names perhaps05:17
dr_willisave you tweaked samba at all Valder05:18
permittivityvalder, sure there is, but why would you?  samba runs out of a config file.05:18
jessie_AlessonZaire: Hello. What's up?05:18
ValderYes. I was file sharing. I think that's where I messed it up.05:18
dr_willischeck smb.conf to be sure printers are shared perhaps05:18
permittivityvalder:   ok.  let me give you a helping hand.  uno momento,senor05:18
AlessonZairejessie_ nothing special, just greeting :D05:19
permittivityvalder:  i'm assumign you can use the command line?05:19
dr_willisuser made shares shouldent affect cups at all05:19
ValderI'm using ssh right now to connect to the server.05:19
davidwinter62trying to download and install testdisk05:20
AlessonZaireIt happened that I switched here the moment you were logging in haha05:20
Valderand Willis, I'm not sure, but I think I just messed with something in the config that doesn't make it work.05:20
davidwinter62I down loaded everything but dont know how to launch05:20
permittivityvalder:  can you give us the output of the following, please don't paste anything self identifiable:05:20
permittivitygrep -v ^# /etc/samba/smb.conf | grep -v ^$05:20

urlin2uxuser1, it looks good try reloading grub to the mbr it looks like it should boot.  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Reinstalling_GRUB205:24
REK_007well i need it for certain purpose as well :/05:24
xanguadavidwinter62: sudo apt-get install testdisk05:24
xuser1so , does windows create this problem?05:24
Stanley00davidwinter62: what's exactly does you need then? using ubuntu?05:24
imadamdr_willis: so you think it may just be an issue with the CD?05:24
AlessonZairedavidwinter62 you're in the right place, just explain your problem, if someone knows the answer, they'll let you know05:24
urlin2uxuser1, the script shows it should be booting I see know cause.05:24
imadamI was able to get linux mint up and running, so its not a hard drive issue?05:24
dr_willisimadam:  or the hd.... like the message said05:25

urlin2uimadam, can you paste bin a screen shot opf gparted?05:26
zHammeRzimadam, are you installing it from cd or dvd?  If so, try burning the image again using a slower speed, such as 4x.  you might have just got a bad burn.05:26
imadamHow can I run a check to verify its md5?05:26
xuser1im not sure is a hhd problem windows works05:26
Stanley00imadam: run md5sum <yourfile>05:26
urlin2u!md5sum | imadam05:26

imadamIts a DVD-R CD.05:26
zHammeRzI would try burning it again at a slower speed and then try to re-install05:26
zHammeRzand what ubott said :)05:27
REK_007xuser1: the windows is good . It works but it present on another physical drive . So I think GRUB has some problem recognizing the HDD05:27
imadamThanks guys, going to try the lower speed and see what happens. I had an older linix mint version on a CD I was able to install onto the desktop, so doesn't look like an HD issue.05:27
xuser1windows and linux are on same hdd05:28
REK_007different HDD05:28
REK_007one is on ssd other on hdd05:28
urlin2uxuser1, yeah, do you want to try just reloading the mbr?05:28
xuser1 REK_007:  win is on c (dev/.sda1) an linux on |dev/sda 305:28

jeffrey_Is there any easy way add the Google Calendar to Ubuntu?  Every tutorial I look at points me to software that doesn't seem to exist anymore....05:30
zHammeRzimadam, when you get 11 loaded up, just press the windows key, then in the search type terminal, then click :)05:30
Lasersimadam: Search for it in Applications "Terminal"05:30
urlin2uREK_007, run this script from a live cd and pastebin the RESULTS.txt http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/05:30

urlin2uimadam, that's the scuttlebutt.:D05:35
earthshadeOr a few? :P05:35
earthshadeNo one^???05:35
Lasers!sup | OJ_Simpson05:35
zHammeRzearthshade, dell used too, not sure if they still do05:36
LasersOJ_Simpson: Nevermind. How're you? What do you need help with? Spit out. :)05:36
ValderI got it! lol05:36
urlin2uearthshade, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuPre-installed05:36
OJ_Simpson<-- Kubuntu 11.0405:36
ActionParsnipearthshade: www.Linuxpreloaded.com05:36
earthshadezHammeRz: I dont think so05:36
earthshadeThx urlin2u and ActionParsnip ill check it out05:36
zHammeRzI know they did for a while, they may have abandoned it..check the other links :)05:36
ActionParsnipOr just home build :-)05:38
jeffrey_even when they did, Dell only installed it on their most underpowered computers, it seemed......05:38
OJ_SimpsonI installed the Full Kubuntu package and it broke my Nvidia video driver, so After removing the package video driver still broke, then I did a clean install with the same /home and still no Nvidia driver05:38
zHammeRzjeffrey_, yea I did notice that.05:38
urlin2uOJ_Simpson, you have to install it sounds like05:39
earthshadeurlin2u ans ActionParsnip thanks!  An the only company i had checked out before was system76, but everything seemed wayyyyy overpriced05:39
dr_willissounds like kubuntu did not break the driver05:39
ActionParsnipOJ_Simpson: did you try: sudo nvidia-xconfig05:39
teweai am server administrator and the server is in another room and i would like to acess remotly using vncviewer but this one is not compfortable becaouse i must be enter to server room and in order to make allow and also iam using putty but this one is fine but this is also i coudnt acess the graphical like vnc viewer is there any body to help me?05:39
imadamNot that big of a market for Ubuntu. Couldn't you always buy a desktop from Dell running no OS and install ubuntu yourself?05:40
OJ_SimpsonI installed the video driver directly from Nvidia the first time, after the clean install I tried to install the driver from the restricted driver section but neither of them will activate05:40
ActionParsniptewea: vnc is very insecure. What distro / OS does the server run?05:41
dr_willistewea:  use vncserver not the built in gnome remote desktop vnc. no need to go to ther room then05:41
earthshadeimadam: you can buy computers without operating systems?!?!?!?05:41
dr_willisearthshade:  of course05:42
ActionParsnipearthshade: sure05:42
zHammeRzearthshade, or just build your own..plenty of howTO guilds on the 'net on how to build one from scratch.05:42
OJ_Simpsonimadam bare bones baby05:42
teweaActionParsnip:ubuntu serevr 8.405:42
zHammeRzhowto GUIDES I mean :)05:42
imadamearthshade, you sure can. I contacted Dell last year asking if they could do it and they said sure.05:42
imadamYou pay over the odds for a new computer running windows.05:42
earthshadeSorry, ios multitasking fail there05:43
ActionParsniptewea: so why do you need more than ssh? I hope you didn't install a desktop on it05:43
ValderDr.Willis. Here are my Samba config files.05:43
earthshadezHammeRz: I want a laptop though so thats gonna be a bit tougher05:43
OJ_Simpsonsudo: nvidia-xconfig: command not found05:43
earthshadeAnd also if you do buy a computer without an OS how do you know if it will be compatible05:44
earthshadeWith ubuntu05:44
ActionParsnipearthshade: tough yes but some companies give the option05:44
nodexubuntu is kinda compatable with ever pc05:44
urlin2uearthshade, http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/05:45
ValderAlmost every.05:45
htmlthere s  a list of part on ubunutu .com that tells you, and ask people, earthshade05:45
ActionParsnipOJ_Simpson: its there when you install an nvidia driver via the repos05:45
teweaActionParsnip:i would like to acess remotly like fro example to show me all the application on the server like the terminal it self and run another graphical application?05:45
htmlearthshade,  what do you have in mind? to build?05:45
imadamnodex, disagree. I installed ubuntu onto my laptop a while back and pretty messed up my wireless card.05:45
earthshadeIm dual booting ubuntu on my old pc now and there are a lot of compatibility issues, thats why im wondering05:45
earthshadehtml: A laptop, without being specific at all05:46
OJ_Simpsonpop the live cd in and if can connect to the internet install simple done05:46
dr_willistewea:  ssh can do that for the most part.05:46
OJ_Simpson@ActionParsnip reinstalling driver now I'll let you know what happens when I reboot05:47
dr_willisssh -x remotepc   run gedit.. it appears locally. running on remote05:47
ValderHow can I reset Samba to default configurations?05:47
htmlearthshade, if its unity based  then brace your self for a fight , to get it to work , unless you find the rare gups that dont have much of one05:47
teweadr_willis:but ssh can only brings me the file  not all application05:47
dr_willisValder: that config looks very default to me exept for the one share05:48
earthshadeHtml: you lost me there :P05:48
dr_willistewea:  rephrase that. it made no sense05:48
ActionParsniptewea: there are web ui possiblities but the more services you add to be  connected to, the less security you will have. There are guides for VNCing to headless systems around the web if you really want. I'd look into ebox too, see if it suits your needs05:48
htmlearthshade, if its unity based  then brace your self for a fight , to get it to work , unless ..05:48
ValderThen why do you believe my Windows pc won't connect? What port does Samba use or does it even use any?05:48
earthshadeIf what is unity based? Unity based?05:48
zHammeRzNothing wrong with Unity05:48
earthshadeIm so lost05:49
earthshade<<<<ubuntu noob05:49
ActionParsniptewea: you can connect to ssh with x forwarding allowed, and run gui apps. Any windows systems will05:49
ValderUnity is GUI which isthe bar you see on the top.05:49
dr_willisValder:  631 for cups.. and it may not be a samba issue. but a cups onw. can you access that minecraft share?05:49
ActionParsnipNeed to run xming but the app will show on the desktop05:50
ValderNo, I can't05:50
earthshadeValder: ah, so what do i need to fight if something is unity based?05:50
htmlearthshade,  then your going to do like 3x and up more work just tring to !) find one that works (gpu) or go with something thats going to give you hell05:50
dr_willisValder:  try to access it via ip. not server name05:50
ValderDepends on how old your computer is.05:50
earthshadeFIND ONE WHAT?!?!?05:50
Valderdr_willis, I'll try.05:50
teweaActionParsnip:how can i connect  to ssh with x forwarding tell  me how can i do that?05:51
imadamWhat is a good IRC client for linux?05:51
dr_willistewea:  ssh -x foo05:51
ValderI tried \\192.168.1.X and nothing05:51
zHammeRzimadam, I use XChat05:51
earthshadeimadam: Xchat05:51
dr_willisValder:  can you ping the box?05:51
imadamThanks guys, going to download Xchat. I haven't been on IRC for years.05:52
ValderThat, I can do05:52
pidzxchat all the way05:52
dr_willischeck firewall Valder  is all i can suggest05:52
wildbattewea:  ssh -X foo05:52
teweadr_willis:but it says Could not resolve hostname foo: Name or service not known?05:52
Valderufw allow smbd?05:52
wildbattewea:  ssh -X <hostname>05:52
SIFTUtewea: dr_willis note it is "ssh -X foo" not -x which actually disables X forwarding05:53
dr_willistewea:  think a bit...  foo is an example name..;)05:53
TehAndrewRyanhey all05:53
ActionParsniptewea: in putty there is a tickbox. You will need to install xming then run it, so the apps have an x server to stick to. The app runs on server but displays on the client. Its not a million miles from Citrix05:53

infidanyone know why google chrome's Developer Tools refuse to let me edit javascript dynamically? I click and double-click on javascript in the 'Scripts' tab like i'm supposed to and nothing ever happens. I've tried it in ubuntu 10.04 LTS on 3 different machines using different versions of chrome, including the 14.x beta and 15.x developer channel versions.06:08
fus10nx1Is there an easy way to have Ubuntu 'watch' a piece of software that crashes very rarely and automatically restart it if it stops running? Furthermore, is it an easy task06:08
infidyet somehow it works in my 13.0 chrome install on windows 7 :|06:08
susundbergOJ_Simpson: afaik googling the error seems like the generated xorg.conf does not contain device line since that is not compulsory, but nvidia-xconf requires such06:09
urlin2uimadam, you kept saying the HD is okay are you familiar with the limit of partition types on a sigle HD?06:09
susundbergfus10nx1: run it manually from terminal06:09
fus10nx1susundberg: what good will that do ?06:10
imadamurlin2u, has no partition. Not running any OS what so ever, bare bone :)06:10
OJ_SimpsonLike I said before I previously installed the driver directly from Nvidia06:10
fus10nx1and that seems like a bad solution for when the machine reobots06:10
susundbergfus10nx1: i guess you can also attach to the process with gdb06:10
urlin2uimadam, cool06:10
susundbergfus10nx1: yes that is for debugging only -- what did you want to do and why?06:10
fus10nx1i have a piece of VPN based software and every so often (very rarely) it'll crash06:11
fus10nx1and i have to manually go in and restart it06:11
fus10nx1its rare, but when it happens my alert system sends hundreds of alerts since none of the machines can talk to teh main server06:11
fus10nx1think nagios06:11
wildbatfus10nx1: you can have a script with endless loops with the command of the app in it . (given it is not a daemon).06:11
fus10nx1isnt there a way to just have ubuntu 'watch' it and if it goes down, try to start it again06:11

pratzhey guys how can i get the network connection window through a command ??07:47
JadedJacobThis maybe a silly question but does ubuntu install faster in 'text mode' or once the live cd environment has loaded07:47
JadedJacobCancel that lol07:48
somsipDaVamps: Logout. On the login screen at the bottom there will be a dropdown to choose your session. Choose Classic Gnome07:48
urlin2uDaVamps, you want the classic desktop?07:48

pratzi am using gnome07:49
htmlgoogle it, its on the forms07:49
DaVampssomsip : ahh so with 11.04 it almost presets the windows managers07:49
bullgard4_DaVamps: Log out and Log in until you have keyed in your username. Then at the bottom there will appear a menu. Select "GNOME Classic'.07:49

somsipDaVamps: Unity is not for m either, but many people like it, so UTT07:51
asdjaputrahoney: yes, it's a command line downloader, but there's a GUI representation of wget too07:51
rumpe1Johnny_Giggles, nowadays, this method is not more secure than simple wiping with just one iteration07:51
ActionParsnipJohnny_Giggles: dd will do that for you, or shred (if I remember correctly)07:51
honeyasdjaputra:i need the graphical07:52
DaVampssomsip : yea.. i'm sure i will get used to it.. and eventually figure it out.. but until then... classic is best :D07:52

oCeankhaliG: that's not what I said. This is technical support questions only. If you need to rant, find another place to do so08:55
asdjaputrabartmon, edit .dmrc08:55
bartmonkhaliG: yes, they do believe they can do better. That's one of the strengths of open source that you can take a project and take it into another direction. It's called forking.08:55
asdjaputrabartmon, sorry i was wrong, it was per-user config files08:55
asdjaputraagree with bartmon, so they will keep improving it for their needs08:56

ActionParsnipDarekDeo: xorg edgers may have it but it is extremely experimental and may cause a tonne of issues. The drivers in the driver app are known to work well08:59

bahamasdagon666: why?09:10
ActionParsnipVampy: do you mean there is a newer version than on the default repos?09:10
VampyAction : i'm tryin to install the MetaCity WM, and its asking for glib (succesfully updated) but gthread cant be found09:11
VampyAction : in term i run sudo apt-get install gthread and returns unable to locate package09:12
ActionParsnipVampy: all the deps for metacity are in the repos09:12
devcalais64bit 11.04 compared to 32bit uses an entirely different kernel, yeah? There is no 'upgrade' option between the two? I just got mailed a 64bit copy, installed 32bit because I was impatient..09:12
VampyAction : so then ./configure then make then make check then make install should work?09:13
somsipdevcalais: I did find a very long and complicated method to switch from 32 to 64, but I just installed 64 on a separate partition and built it up from there09:13
bahamasbartmon: from what i understand here https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-firmware/+bug/728746 , the issue would be that i'm missing some files. however, those files are present in my case09:14
ubottuLaunchpad bug 728746 in linux-firmware (Ubuntu Natty) "broadcom 80211 firmware needs symlinks" [Medium,Fix released]09:14
VampyAction : or would i be better off to sudo apt-get install metacity-<vers>09:14
dagon666bahamas: because bashrc is ment to configure your current tty/pty not to grant/deny access globally to the x server. Of course it will work but it is dirty09:14

VampyAction : so i would need to update it to the newest version, correct?09:18
bahamasdagon666: doesn't xorg have a config file where you can do this?09:18
bartmonbahamas: yes, that was fixed during 11.04 development, before the release in april. I would personally try the method outlined in the last comment - blacklist the default driver (module) and go with b43 & fwcutter. It works really stably on my debian server09:20

ne2khttps://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/alsa-driver/+question/166005 I followed the instructions in comment 1 to fix my sound not working after upgrading to natty. I have now just rebooted after a recent upgrade and sound is not working again -- because I have 2.6.38-10 modules and not 2.6.38-11 modules.09:43
ne2klooking at the package info for linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.38-11-generic_2.6.38-11.201108241605_amd64.deb it says "You likely do not want to install this package directly.

maalacreseting bios password on HP ProBook 6555b. I know there is like a binary or something to do this ..i forgot the password ..need to update bios ..LAN is not working on battery mode09:49
ne2kmaalac: there is usually a hardware way to reset the bios, involving jumpers or combinations of keys at power on. consult your manufacturer09:49
maalactried removing the battery ..didn't work ..i don't see any jumpers on it ..09:50
ne2kmaalac: jumpers will be on the motherboard09:51
ne2kmaalac: you mean you removed the bios battery on the motherboard?09:51
maalacyes, and i tried looking for the jumpers i don't see any ..09:51
ne2kmaalac: there may be a capacitor too, which you would either have to wait to empty or short out to drain it09:52

patoI'm trying to install ubuntu at a "hp EliteBook 8540w" with a nvidia "Quadro FX 1800M". The liveCD crashes when starting Xorg. I've had some trouble with openSuSE 11.4 until I've installed Nvidia-drivers. My concern is that the card is too new for "nv" or "noveau" drivers. How can I enforce the liveCD to use vesa or alike?09:54
coolforyouthank ou koshie09:54
koshieFinalRelizcoolforyou, it's a big community with a lot of nice people. And bad too. :D09:55
koshieFinalRelizBut Ubuntu is perfect for new user.09:55
coolforyouis it good idea to practice ubuntu linux in VMware ?09:55
idefixwhat happens if you type 'ftp &' in a terminal? is it started somewhere invisibly and you can reuse the terminal?09:55
jribpato: there may be some way but I would just use the alternate install cd instead09:55
jrib!alternate | pato09:55
ubottupato: The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/alternative-download#alternate - See also !minimal09:55
bahamasidefix: the process will run in the background09:55
koshieFinalRelizcoolforyou, why not. You've Wubi too. It's is just to try it it's good. But for every day I don't think so.09:55
ActionParsnippato: add the boot option:  blacklist.nouveau=109:56
jribidefix: 'fg' should bring it back to the foreground09:56
bahamasidefix: so yes, you can continue to type in the terminal09:56
koshieFinalRelizWubi install Ubuntu IN windows, like a software. So it's not the best way to use Ubuntu :)09:56
ActionParsnippato: you will then use the nv driver which should work ok09:56
apa__anyone, is there some option in wubi, which forces the reinstallation?09:56
idefixjrib is there a way to resend it back to the background?09:56
coolforyoukos, i just wanted to practice the linux command and instaling driver s , so is VM ware is good option for me09:56
jribidefix: ctrl-z and then 'bg'09:56
robinduckettidefix: probably best to use screen09:56
ActionParsnipapa__: you can uninstall it, then reinstall it09:56
koshieFinalRelizcoolforyou, not good for driver :D09:57
robinduckettapa__: uninstall reinstall09:57
idefixrobinduckett? what do you mean with that?09:57

robinduckettwhy would you want to background it?09:57

ActionParsnipGuest42033: there is empathy and pidgin which can do it, or you can install gyache09:58

AwwwCrapActionParsnip: it works fine as far as games and emulators go, and it moves the mouse around, but the layout is horrible and I'd like to change it10:00
apa__ActionParsnip: ok.. i have used wubi couple times, but now i cant get it to work..10:00
ActionParsnipAwwwCrap: then I'd ask in the xbmc channel10:00
coolforyoukos , actually i was tying to learn red hat linux , but i felt ubuntu will be good to start10:00

ActionParsnipAwwwCrap: if the joystick works in emulators and such then its an xbmc config, surely?10:02
knightstalkerkoshieFinalReliz,you can always try Fedora10:02
koshieFinalRelizcoolforyou, My advice : Try Ubuntu if you really want to use it everyday, it's free, simple, powerfull.10:02
ActionParsnipkoshieFinalReliz: it is, you just won't get support10:02
coolforyouyes kos . many told me debian is best for server10:02
knightstalkerIts free,but its a kind of test place for RHEL10:02
ActionParsnipkoshieFinalReliz: you can run RHL, maybe not RHEL ;)10:03
koshieFinalRelizknightstalker, it's good too, but a little bit updated for a new user.10:03
koshieFinalRelizRHL exist ? :o10:03
knightstalkerkoshieFinalReliz,yup :p10:03
koshieFinalRelizThat's not RHEL10:03
koshieFinalRelizcoolforyou, yes, better than Ubuntu IMHO10:03
koshieFinalRelizBut Ubuntu can make a good server :)10:03

SkandeeI don't think so. We've all got a password, and when we connect to the network and try to open google.com (eg) then we're asked for the password on a website10:28
oCeanknightstalker: searching for packages, you need the word 'info'  ( /msg ubottu info mplayer )10:28

StravHi. I'm experiencing several troubles with unity's launchers so I'm wondering (haven't check launchpad yet but these problems are so obvious I can't believe they still apply): 1. If I search for an application and drag it to the launcher's bar, sometimes it works, sometimes it don't (more especially if I decided to remove and the place again the application in the launcher). 2. when a new launcher is added, sometimes new instances of10:31
Stravthe application are bound to the launcher, sometimes they are not (hence, duplicated). 3. If I manually edit a .desktop, it automatically gets removed from the launcher (even if I do something as simple as change the icon path).10:31
StravIs there any accessible config file I can check to see why everything is so messed up with my unity?10:32

sveinseWhen writing a package, how does a package request a reboot of the system? I often see kernel updates which gives a red icon in gnome telling me to reboot due to an upgrade10:40
Stravah. If there was a programming channel where it'll be possible to casually discuss of one's idea... that'll be ideal. Unfortunately no such thing exists.10:41
taiain fact, the device has a confusing process of use in Windows! they should use integrated wireless modem in the laptop to find available network, then using an application called IBSDriver, the connection gets transferred  to this external modem!!! this process seems rediculous in ubunu10:41
=== Parall4x is now known as daParall4x
=== KNUBBIG is now known as KNUBBIG_
ActionParsnipsveinse: the reboot insn't mandatory, it's just wanting to make you reboot to load the nwe kernel. Or do you have a package you are creating and want to add that feature?10:41
ActionParsniptaia: suprised it connects via usb, most use ethernet which is much more graceful10:42
jpdssveinse: Look at the source for the kernel package?10:42
taiaActionParsnip, yeah, but this one is using USB :P I hate it when it comes to USB issues too :P10:43

solofightmouse, sorry will do10:47
glebihansolofight, first thing the command "sudo apt-get install update" will never work, it should be either "sudo apt-get update" or "sudo apt-get install packagename"10:47
glebihansolofight, so what does "sudo apt-get update" say ?10:49
solofightglebihan, yeah mistake10:49
solofightglebihan, http://pastebin.com/jZsS8gCA10:49
Stravis there some .desktop entry I'm missing?10:49
TheRandomHi, typing 'apt-get install lynx' for example tells me how large the install is etc etc when I tell it to go ahead it gives me 'Something wicked happened resolving 'gb...'' errors? Internet connection is fine.10:49
glebihansolofight, that's the same command, could you pastebin the output of "sudo apt-get update" (will probably be the same, but may be better to check anyway)10:50
solofightglebihan, the same error even when i correct the command10:50
StravTheRandom: try a ping on the repository that gives you the resolving error. Then if it works, try to access it's packages directory from your browser.10:51
TheRandomping'ing google gives an unknown host error.10:51
TheRandomI've ssh'd into it so I can't use the browser10:51
solofightglebihan, i read a post which said to remove the entire directory and try again so did this http://pastebin.com/imnLz4WY10:52
solofightbut no good, eneded up with error10:52
StravTheRandom: just by chance: what does ifconfig gives you for
StravTheRandom: (do you have the lo interface enabled?)10:52
TheRandomerror fetching interface information: device not found10:53
ActionParsnipTheRandom: can you ping ?10:53
TheRandomStrav, unsure10:53
StravTheRandom: that's your problem.10:53
TheRandomActionParsnip, I can10:53
glebihansolofight, try "sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*" then "sudo apt-get update" again10:53
StravTheRandom: try: sudo ifconfig lo up10:53
TheRandomStrav, the network adaptor isn't being picked up?10:53
TheRandomstrav, ran it, no output.10:54
ActionParsnipsolofight: http://pastebin.com/pY1h7LNY10:54
Stravthere's no output usually, but then ifconfig to see if it came back up10:54
ActionParsnipTheRandom: then if you run:  gksudo gedit /etc/resolv.conf     delete ALL text and add the line:  nameserver     save the new file and close gedit, does the web work ok?10:54
solofightActionParsnip, i need to execute all of those one by one ?10:54
TheRandomSeveral lines explaining network adaptors10:55
ActionParsnipsolofight: yes10:55
TheRandomActionParsnip, there was no text in the file, I've added the line.10:55
TheRandomPinging google has found a host, and responds :)10:55
ActionParsnipTheRandom: should be ok, usually that file gets updated by network manager tpe apps (like network-manager and wicd)10:56
TheRandomapt-get install runs.10:56
OnlyodinShould hope so, that's google's DNS ;)10:56
ActionParsnipTheRandom: cool, do you use GUI network apps?10:56
TheRandomActionParsnip, no, not knowingly.10:56
ActionParsnipOnlyodin: I only use it because its easy to remember10:56
TheRandomOnlyodin, I realised after searching :P10:56
TheRandomActionParsnip, so as I understand what occured. My nameserver wasn't available to the server?10:56
Antrax2000hi, im dual-booting ubuntu with arch linux, ubuntu as the primary os. the problem is grub2 tells me that arch boot partition in in /dev/sda5 but actually it's in /dev/sda1. i tried update-grub and still grub got my arch partition wrong, can someone help? thanks10:56
StravTheRandom: yep10:57
TheRandomStrav, thank's.10:57
ActionParsnipTheRandom: ok get fully updated and reboot, see if it stays. If not, we can take extra steps to make it be set each time. The combination of driver/nic and router are making your OS fail to get DNS settings via DHCP (probably some netgear rubbish)10:57
TheRandomHow did you know ActionParsnip  :P10:57
ActionParsnipTheRandom: so we need to work around it by setting the DNS servers manually10:57
TheRandomI'll set it to reboot10:57
StravTheRandom: due to the lack of your loopback interface which got screwed10:58
solofightglebihan, same error10:58
ActionParsnipTheRandom: because you couldn't ping names (needs DNS) so I had you ping a known IP and it worked. Ergo, DNS is failing10:58
solofightwill try ActionParsnip solution10:58
glebihansolofight, did you run the commands ActionParsnip gave you ?10:58
solofightdoing them as we speak10:58
TheRandomActionParsnip, that makes alarming sense :P10:59
ActionParsnipTheRandom: http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using.html  shows how to set it in Ubuntu10:59
solofightActionParsnip, whats the reason for such happening ?10:59
TheRandomAs you forsaw ActionParsnip it has failed again.10:59
solofightbug in ubuntu ?10:59
ActionParsnipsolofight: the apt thing? No idea. I only know the fix11:00
solofightin process of executing the first command11:00
StravActionParsnip: why didn't he had any interfaces to begin with? (I didn't had this problem once or twice)11:00
ActionParsnipTheRandom: if you install dnsmasq and set the first dns server to  you can make name resoles take 0ms rather than ~30ms11:01
StravI did had...11:01
ActionParsnipStrav: no idea, didn't see that bit. Just saw the ping stuff11:01
ActionParsnipTheRandom: you never know, updates may just make it work as it should, meaning you don't need to manually set stuff11:02
TheRandomActionParsnip: installed dnsmasq.11:02
TheRandomActionParsnip: It's interesting as lots of things seemed to fail overnight, ftp, ssh, DNS.11:02
TheRandomActionParsnip: there were no changes on the server bar apt-get upgrade.11:02
damo22ActionParsnip: that doesnt make sense, wouldnt the dns server on localhost still have to ask a real dns for the ip if its not cached?11:02
StravActionParsnip: when I asked him to do an ifconfig... ah I see, he did ifconfig
ActionParsnipTheRandom: you need to tell dnsmasq to listen to
ActionParsnipdamo22: initialy, yes but it learns the resolutions over time11:03
TheRandomActionParsnip, whats the syntax for that? -a --localhost?11:04
mouseI'm running firefox and I can't get it to open .rar files with my archive manager by default or even optionally.  I've added file-roller manually but it only seems to be temporary since it still won't let archive manager be an option in the drop down menu.  Does anyone have experience with this?11:04

solofightActionParsnip, removed ticks from all under other software tab, now again start from first command or just update command ?11:11
htmlinprogressbazhang,  for what ? my name was at the end of every statment11:11
ActionParsnipTheRandom: yes, tht's why you need the guide, the GUI app you are using to configure networking (network manager is default in ubuntu) is overwriting the file, so you need that guide to tell it what to write to the file as it isn't being recieved by DHCP11:12
tarelerulzI try to send files to my pc via blue tooth ,but nothing happens.   What could the problem be11:12
ActionParsnipTheRandom: if it DID then the app would write whatever it recieved but it isn't so it blanks the file11:12
ActionParsnipTheRandom: that's why I gave the link. It explains how you can tell it the DNS servers.11:12

TheRandomActionParsnip, I'm a div I was looking under Debian, however I'm sshing into the server, so do you know how to do this via terminal?11:13
ActionParsnipTheRandom: not sure there. I think there is nm-cli but I've never used it. You could set it for now in resolv.conf manually and when you next physically attend the system (or can get someone else to) you can setup the app there11:14
solofightActionParsnip, closed software center, and again gave sudo apt-get update  and got this error http://pastebin.com/UADn2g8311:14
ActionParsnipTheRandom: if you use a wired connection and nothing smart like VPN etc, you can remove network manager and use /etc/network/interfaces to setup addressing etc and then you can edit resolv.conf and it will not get blanked at boot11:15
ActionParsnipsolofight: I'd try a little later (or try a different server again). Not sure there. Maybe others can advise11:15
mouseActionParsnip, All the packages you've mentioned are installed and I restarted firefox and I still can't get it to use an archive manager by default or to even have an archive manager as an option in the drop down menu.11:16
PoSVActionParsnip: i just tried unrar l file.rar and it asks for a password; is that unrar asking for a password or the .rar?11:16
glebihansolofight, doesn't look like you changed the mirror, did you ?11:17
damo22TheRandom: theres a guide on how to do it on the link ActionParsnip provided earlier... you have to edit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf11:17

Does somebody else have the same experience and if so, why is that? It seems that ignores the .svn for the first folder grep get's in but not for all, or something like that.11:22
Stanley00ichbinder: maybe you should try --exclude-dir=PATTERN11:25

jribzimbres: anything seem funny to you?11:47
krastinanybody know how to make the unity launcher display running programs from the current workspace only?11:47
zimbresjrib: yes, i have removed most default directories because I do not like to name that way. But the question is why my directorys are being diplayed on the Desktop screnn11:48
jribzimbres: look ate the value for DESKTOP11:49
solofightpeople help i changed to main server and entered the commands one by one and whe i do the update this error occurs http://pastebin.com/index/UADn2g8311:49
zimbresjrib: ok, I will edit the file, I did not know it11:50
zHammeRzwhere do you see where the linkspeed of a nic is in Ubuntu 11?11:51
zimbresjrib: Can I just remove lines I do not want?11:51
jribzimbres: you probably don't want to do that as programs will often ask things like "where is the directory for videos?" and XDG_VIDEOS_DIR will be the answer it receives.  Just set some values you prefer11:52
jribzimbres: you can make the value whatever you want (as long as you enter it in the format described in the formats at the top of the file)11:53
hostdreamCan anyone tell me what is wrong in my preseed disk layout http://pastie.org/2496275 that doing a popup appearing during the install process and asking me if I'm ok to write to disk ? I really want to avoid that... :)11:53
zimbresjrib: ok, but anyway I do not need a template directory for example11:54
zimbresjrib: or a publicshare dir11:54
snufftcan someone tell me if the example under the NameVirtualHost is correct for vhosts in apache? http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-create-name-based-and-ip-based-virtual-hosts-in-apache.html11:55
jribzimbres: I do not know what the effect of just deleting the value is (it may be restored or it may not)11:55
snufftshouldn't it be enclosed or something to separate vhost entries?11:55
jribzimbres: if it's restored, it's probably restored according to: /etc/xdg/user-dirs.defaults11:55
zimbresHow do I minimize all windown to have a view of my Desktop on Unity. on later version there was a button on the botton left side of the screen.11:56
pznat 11.4 login screen, there is no option "brazilian portuguese utf-8", I can only see iso-8859-1 option. what is wrong, how can I add the utf-8 option?11:56
robinduckettzimbres: Windows/Super key + D11:56
zimbresjrib: ok, i do most of my work on the terminal and i do not like to see these directories every time I ls11:57

pete-johjrib: hm, my daemon does not show up under jobs, does it gurantee that it runs as a detached process?12:00

pete-johjrib: epic12:01
pete-johjrib: the TTY column says its running as ?12:01
pete-johjrib: instead of ttyX/ptsX12:01
pete-johjrib: any ideas why i cannot stop the daemon  with start-stop-daemon commadn?12:02
jribpete-joh: I am not familiar with start-stop-daemon12:02
jribpete-joh: I would start by investigating how start-stop-daemon tries to stop the process... and seeing how the process responds to different signals12:02
pete-johjrib: its the function that /etc/init.d/scripts call when they start and stop daemons12:02
pete-johjrib: yea, i can stop the daemon by sending kill TERM, the daemon listens to that kill signal12:03
pete-johjrib: but i have no idea about the internal functions in start-stop-daemon12:03
jribpete-joh: I would read start-stop-daemon documentation and source code at this point12:04
pete-johjrib: also, i cannot use 'pgrep <tab> to list the daemon'12:04
pete-johjrib: i fear that the daemon isnt completely daemonized12:04

nicofs_ActionParsnip, where can I do this?12:12
alphonso89i want to install ubuntu side by side with my windows 712:13
alphonso89when i first tried to load it with my usb, i could select the install side by side option and I chose it12:13
don-iis it possible to pipe the output of ls into a text file thats in someone elses home directory ?12:13
don-ii tried with sudo, and it wont let me do that either12:13
Hyperbytedon-i, only if you have write access to it.12:14
alphonso89however it was isntalling and I got an error and it returned me to the selection menu but this time there was only 2 options left. either delete windows 7 or other options12:14
jribdon-i: command | sudo tee file12:14
ActionParsnipnicofs_: run:   gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub    find the line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"   and change it to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash ipv6.disable=1"    save the new file, close gedit then run:   sudo update-grub     reboot to test. You could have EASILY found that out yourself using websearches, leaving me free to help otehrs.12:14
zykotick9don-i, fyi if you are using an actual pipe "|", sudo can't... see jrib above12:14
alphonso89i rebooted severtimes and it was still the same12:14
alphonso89is there anyway i can install side by side :(?12:15
RealAndyDoes anyone know how to setup access to GoogleTalk from pidgin on ubuntu, I get "404 Remote server not found" whenever i query the GoogleTalk user directory?12:15
marenostrumalphonso89, Did you have an empty partition? such as D, E etc. in Windows?12:16
nicofs_ActionParsnip, the disabling thing or that ipv6 is the issue?12:16
alphonso89nah i only have 2 partition. 1 with windows inside and another 1 with backup recovery12:16
ActionParsnipnicofs_: the disabling thing12:16

don-ijrib, brilliant12:16
don-iHyperbyte, zykotick9, jrib  thanks12:17
don-ii should see what 'tee' does..never used that before12:17
marenostrumalphonso89, L didn't install Uvbuntu side by side with Win 7 but did it side by side with XP on my brother-in-law's machine. There was no problem.12:17
jribdon-i: other way is to do « sudo -i » (you get a root prompt), redirect output from ls like you normally would using '>', then exiting once you are done12:17
RealAndyActionParsnip: thanks12:18
alphonso89yea there shouldnt be any problem12:18
alphonso89i mean ive installed it several times before on this laptop as well12:18
alphonso89side by side windows 7 but it was ubuntu 10.04 and this time im using ubuntu 11.10 beta12:18
marenostrumalphonso89, Did you have an empty partition other than where Win is installed (typically C)?12:18
alphonso89marenostrum, nope. i only have 1 with windows 7 inside and another 1 with backup recovery12:19
don-ijrib, good to know !12:19
The_Rufushelp!!!! I've had my server working fine for a few weeks, nothing has changed at all, but now when I "sudo" a command it tells me my username is not in the sudoers list!!!! I can't administer my computer!!!!!!!12:20
marenostrumalphonso89, I am not an expert on dual booting (installing side by side) but as far as I know, the first point is to prepare an empty partion.12:20
marenostrumalphonso89, Most probably, Ubuntu did what you said because it coludn't see an empty partition.12:21
ActionParsnipThe_Rufus: hold shift at boot, select recovery mode then select root, then run:  usermod -a -G admin foo        change foo to your username, reboot and the foo user can use sudo etc12:21
alphonso89mareno, okay but i just want to know if i did anything wrong.12:21
alphonso89mareno, i was able to install side by side before :(12:22

ActionParsnipalphonso89: Win7 can resize it's own partitions, you can then boot the Ubuntu CD and install to the new free space12:22
ActionParsnipalphonso89: I recommend ou12:22
rizzo__quick question, need to install apache 2.2.20, found it here http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/packages/show/319714, how can i install that using apt-get?12:23
ActionParsnipalphonso89: you run a FULL backup in case of catastrophe12:23
rizzo__release: lucid12:23
alphonso89actionparsnip, you are saying that i resize it inside windows then i install ubuntu?12:23
ActionParsnipalphonso89: yes, Win7 can resize it's own NTFS partition12:23
alphonso89actionparsnip, can windows do dynamic partition as well?12:23
ActionParsnipalphonso89: the free space can be then used to install Ubuntu to12:23
marenostrumalphonso89, On Win 7, I believe its easy yo create new partitions. Create one and delete all inside it and try to install Ubuntu side by side. (As I said, I'm not an expert on this issue.)12:23
alphonso89actionparsnip, yea i already backed up. thanks12:23
ActionParsnipalphonso89: that I am not sure of. I just know it can shrink stuff12:24

ActionParsnipalphonso89: it's the way I'd do it. But then again I don't use crappy Windows12:24
Sidewinder1ActionParsnip, When win7 resizes/shrinks it's own partition, does it also defragment?12:24
ActionParsnipSidewinder1: no idea. More than likely ;)12:24
uno1hola ,cual es el canal en español???12:25
marenostrumalphonso89, If you have backup, its nice, don't worry and resize and create a new partition. Do this from Windows OS, I'd say. Then go on as usual.12:25

marenostrumalphonso89, Good luck! I believe that there won't be a trouble.12:28
ne2kActionParsnip: yes12:28
Sidewinder1alphonso89, It can't hurt; and if win7 doesn't automayically do it, when resizing, you'll save yourself a multitude of problems.12:28

rizzo__Pici: lame pci compliance12:32
rizzo__how can i install the oneiric one, or better yet is there a lucid one?12:33
ActionParsniprizzo__: mixing debs between releases is not advised or supported. I suggest you upgrade to oneiric (or find a 3rd party PPA)12:33
ActionParsnip!ppa | rizzo__12:33
ubotturizzo__: A Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA?

javier_Hi. I'm in ubuntu, but some applications, like firefox are using dolphin instead of nautilus (I got dolphin when I installed digikam). How can I change back to nautilus=12:33
rizzo__ActionParsnip: upgrading to Oneiric sounds like a better option, no?12:33
rizzo__its beta?12:34
ne2kActionParsnip: the one I used before (linked in that launchpad URL) had a team-iquik/alsa ppa, which now seems to have vanished12:34
asdjaputrarizzo__, yes, beta12:34
Picirizzo__: PCI compliance shouldn't require you to have a specific version.  The apache2 packages in the repositories  have been patched against CVE-2011-3192, if thats what you're worried about.12:34
ActionParsniprizzo__: its more trustworthy as PPAs are compiled / maintained by random folks from the community. Oneiric is currently beta, yes12:34
ne2kActionParsnip: btw, I already have checked that my driver, library and utilities are synched. all on 1.0.24.x12:35
Sidewinder1marenostrum, No worries; I beat myself up enough for both of us. :-)12:35
rizzo__Pici: they are complaining about CVE-2011-041912:36
ActionParsnipne2k: the iquick ppa only supports up to Lucid12:36

hallgeirgedbian:  you there still?13:12
BluesKajne2k, I get chastised sometimes for suggesting this but pulseaudio can be the problem in a lot of cases , therefore I don't use or need it . Either install pavucontrol and paprefs , or remove pulseaudio and use alsa as your audio ctrl system instead. With pulseaudio it's all or nothing in some cases.13:12
ne2kBluesKaj: I already have pavucontrol13:13
BluesKajne2k, well then , it's your decision whether to keep fiddling with pulseaudio or ....13:14
ne2kBluesKaj: the problem is not with pulseaudio, the problem is with alsa13:14
BluesKajne2k, I have no problems with alsa , but with pulseaudio I have nothing but problems .13:16
ne2kBluesKaj: can I just apt-get remove pulseaudio?13:16
BluesKajne2k, pulseaudio is basically redundant13:17
BluesKajne2k, yes , but you'll need to reboot13:17
valthyxin ubuntu, when i type "arp -a", will it show all the hosts in the network? assuming that host isolation is disabled13:17

robinduckettcould be anything from faulty cable to incorrect hole13:20
ne2krobinsmidsrod: as I said, when I mute and unmute the headphones in pavucontrol (before I removed pulseaudio), I got clicks in the headphones. therefore the headphones are plugged into the right socket13:20

sipiorvalthyx: nmap is useful for exploring your network surroundings.13:21
BluesKajne2k, reboot, force reload alsa means nothing , you need to rid the system of the pulseaudio default config settings13:22

Stanley00martian: that's why anyone should searching before asking ;)14:17
Hyperbytemartian, that's the power of IRC. :)14:18
meowsusarchae, so /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins/ contains the flash plugin .so file?14:18
Poko1oko_Stanley00 same thing it is unresponsive14:18
martianStanley00: I should write an irssi plugin to automatically drop the first message you send to a channel =D14:19
TheishiStanley00: hmm, looks like you are right14:19
archaemeowsus: .../plugins is empty on my drive.14:19

archaemeowsus: my mistake, I am not running the latest release. My fault for thinking the default repository would have it. I'm currently on 12.0.742.112 (90304) Ubuntu 11.04; will download latest and let you know how it goes14:36
meowsusarchae, ah, right on. Yeah repos would never have the most recent version of any highly developed app. That's Windows logic you're using there ;)14:37
archaedon't make me blush, haha :P14:37

mihaurlin2u: you might be right about corruption though16:41
urlin2umiha, it happens do you want a md5sum ink?16:41
pnjh(My apologies in advance if any ubuntu designers are present).  How on earth do I get rid of that ugly purple screen when I start up / reboot  /shut down my computer lol ... Purple is probably my most hated colour :) ... I've seen some ugly "hacks" when searching for this answer on Google, however I'd like to take the time and do it right if anybody has the patience to point me in the right direction? :)16:41
BrandonBoltonmang0: Do you have a Windows computer that you can try and format it with through iTunes? I had to do the same thing with my 1st Generation iPod I don't use anymore.16:42
MeirDedbian: Any ideas?16:43
edbianMeirD: That should be enough for Ubuntu.  Can you elaborate on what you're doing when the windows go grey?16:43
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.16:43
BrandonBoltonpnjh: Just Google 'Change Bootloader screen Ubuntu'16:44
MeirDnothing special... only the terminal window and a browser are open16:44
mang0BrandonBolton I'm afraid I don't :/. I gave up on windows after I got a virus and lost about 700 - 1000 hours work....I have an old, old laptop that doesn't work and probs wouldn't run itunes heh16:44
MeirDSometimes Aptana Studio too... but that's about it16:44
edbianMeirD: next time it happens run top in the terminal and see what is using the most CPU or the most RAM16:44
luiteof course it's window's fault and not your own for not making backups of months of work :p16:44
dinggsmiha: probably no data corruption but a genuine bug. did it load the kernel? "if i start livecd" is too vague a description of where exactly it failed16:44
pnjhBrandonBolton: I did, there were mentions of XSPLASH and Plymouth, a quick scan of these articles led me to believe they are quick "hacks"... isn't there a configuration file or something I can alter manually?16:45
MeirDok, I started "top" I'll check whats going on there16:45
REK_007Guys how can i backup my current ubuntu installation so that i can restore it on my new HDD16:45
urlin2upnjh, at start up you can go text by removing the quiet splash in gksudo gedit  /etc/default/grub16:45
BrandonBoltonmang0: You can try and install iTunes through wWine, there are a few ways to do this but it has to be like iTunes 8 or so.16:46
MeirDcommand "Xorg"16:46
mihadinggs: just checked md5sum, it's fine... it failed right after menu 'start without changing anything'... it wanted to read from 'sr0'16:46
ActionParsnipREK_007: could use dd or partimage16:46
pnjhurlin2u: Text with PURPLE background, so the problem remains lol.  I know it's a silly niggly little point, but I have to look at it every day and it's quite irritating16:46
mihadinggs: cant find option to disable cdrom in bios..16:46
mang0BrandonBolton I'll have a look on appdb for itunes.16:46
urlin2umiha, is the fail a black screen?16:46
REK_007ActionParsnip: I want to keep a backup so that I can format my current 500gb and then again restore ...16:46
ne2kREK_007: can you put both disks in the same machine? if so, do that and use rsync16:47
mihaurlin2u: i pressed f2 and it said ioerror and sr016:47
edbianMeirD: Xorg draws the graphics.  I suggest changing your graphics driver.  Unfortunately I don't know how and I have to go now16:47
urlin2upnjh, black background on my computer16:47
mihait was loading infinetly, the gu16:47
ActionParsnipREK_007: yes, dd will do a bit by bit copy to an image, you can then dd the other way to restore16:47
ne2kREK_007: if not, put them in separate machines and use rsync16:47
BrandonBoltonpnjh: When I did it I had to install a program and download a few different files. I will try and find it again.16:47
MeirDok, thanks man16:47
Matty502First step goes haywire16:47
pnjhBrandonBolton: Thankyou ;)16:47
ne2kActionParsnip: bitcopy is a bit silly if you don't need it. if you copy files you will automatically defragment the drive16:47
urlin2umiha, f2 is generally the bios.16:48
mihathing is i cant find in bios to disable built in cdrom16:48
REK_007sorry i will reframe my question . I will format my HDD on which ubuntu is present and create the partitions again. So is there a way i can backup my current setup[to another HDD] and restore it once my HDD is ready.16:48
pnjhurlin2u: I'll check the file you mentioned and see if I did something different to what you're suggesting.  Xubuntu has the right idea, black and silver <316:48
mihaanyway, my ubuntu 10.04 installation is alright, my lenovo vista recovery wasnt.. just checking if i can boot livecd :)16:48
mang0BrandonBolton looks like itunes 10 is a silver level wine program16:48
ne2kREK_007: why do you want to reformat the drive and recreate the same partitions again?16:48
urlin2uREK_007, yeah clonezilla, but the partions built have to at lwast as big as the original.16:48
greystergood evening everyone16:49
ne2kREK_007: if you're trying to resize, you don't need to go to that length. resizing is mature now16:49
REK_007ne2k: Had made it to GUID table . But not it is having problem reconizing devices on GRUB even with UUIDs16:49
BrandonBoltonpnjh: I did this is a while ago and it worked. http://www.ubuntugeek.co
