cvd_airif i compile it from source will it work?01:33
magn3tsgemini6669, that bug is still around ?!!01:33
alexandrosIs there any way to copy/write files from my ubuntu partition???01:33
laanangemini6669, that is a great feature01:33
alexandrosright now im in windows01:33
gemini6669yeah, from a vanilla install it is definitely still around01:33
michael_popen ssh or lamp01:33
magn3tsthat's just embarassing01:33
gemini6669and quite a deal breaker I might add01:33
magn3tsgemini6669, if you ditch unity it goes away.01:33
alexandrosanyone tell me?01:33
gemini6669I wish that were the case01:33
zykotick9cvd_air, check if a PPA has the updated version you want - "/msg ubottu ppa" for details01:33
magn3tsI was plagued by that for weeks before reverting to cardapio+docky.01:34
gemini6669it was still very present in the new gnome as well01:34
magn3tsalexandros, sorta. why?01:34
magn3tsgemini6669, you got gnome3 working in 11.04?01:34
Logan_cvd_air: I highly doubt compiling from source would make it work out of the box.01:34
alexandrosbecause i want to copy files01:34
ubottuYou can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.01:35
laananurlin2u, any other ideas if the auto-connect/all users doesn't work? apt-get says nm is up to date...01:35
Alx495magn3ts....any ideas on what to do about the ROMPATH?01:35
gemini6669it was working a week ago when I booted back into linux. I haven't been back because I was ticked about the mouse issue01:35
urlin2ulaanan, not sure mine has always worked, wish I did. :D01:35
alexandrosmagnets can u help me?01:35
Logan_cvd_air: This may work for you, actually: https://launchpad.net/~automation/+archive/ppa/+build/268726101:36
laananurlin2u, any idea why nmcli gets 'command not found?'01:36
gemini6669I really want to get the mouse thing fixed though, so... has anyone run across a real fix or is it just supposed to sort itself out on its own? because it has not01:36
joyuseralexandros i think partition magic can do that01:37
alexandrosdo you know a program about it?01:37
magn3tsDCC from Alx495, screaming about rom path.01:37
joyuseralexandros partition magic is the program01:37
magn3tsDude, read a tutorial, or learn the tiniest bit about what you're doing first.01:37
alexandrosok i go download it!01:38
=== nonz is now known as temporarytao
magn3tsAlx495, ROMS are the games that the emulator runs. They're not legal to download and probably aren't meant to be discussed here, though there are open source roms I guess.01:38
joyuseralexandros PM can also write to linux partitions, but it is not convenient01:38
Alx495magn3ts...there are some legal roms.01:38
joyuseralexandros what partition do you have? etx2? ext3?01:38
laananyeah but shouldn't he be careful about what format his HDD is in?01:39
Alx495i used to have a couple..just basic little games01:39
magn3tsAlx495, Ok, so you knwo what they are...01:39
Alx495i do01:39
magn3tsAlx495, not sure what's the confusing part then.01:39

laananlike writing from linux to windows can sometimes kill your data..01:39

urlin2ulaanan, I get a response with that looks like this, I use the cli but I'm not a real expert in it. http://imagebin.org/17330301:39
magn3tsThe rom path is the path where you have them stored.01:39
laananlike Fat 32 to whateer, right?01:39
Alx495the thing is i have no idea where this program wants me to save them01:39
gemini6669I take it that no one else is currently experiencing issues with deadzones on the screen with 11.04 in gnome 3 then?01:40
joyuseralexandros then you need very fresh PM, cuz old versions can only handle ext2, ext301:40
laananurlin2u, thanks...yeah, if I got that I'd be in businesss.01:40
Alx495and since i cant even move around correctly ..it is kind of difficult01:40
alexandrosits version 801:40
urlin2ulaanan, run nm -help01:40
joyuseralexandros I tried pm8 on ext2 some years ago01:40
joyuseralexandros i'm not sure that pm8 can handle ext4...01:41

ubottugemini6669: Gnome 3 is not currently supported on Ubuntu. A PPA for natty is available at https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3 but these packages are EXPERIMENTAL and UNSTABLE, will break Unity and possibly other parts of your system, and cannot be downgraded safely.01:42

gemini6669unity didn't work01:44
cheakoThere are a lot of proxy related bugs, can I start a proxy task force?01:44
joyuseralexandros I would not recommend to correct these errors in PM, because it can ruin all info on that hdd01:44
gemini6669and I don't have as much time on my hands to fix showstopper problems as I did when I was in college01:45
joyuseralexandros you better try another piece of soft.01:45

bombadil_rocksgemini6669, i meant what do you mean by deadzones01:48
gemini6669deadspots: I click on a program and it pulls up, any further clicks within the screen do nothing. there is zero response. sometimes it will actually click something that is one the window behind it01:48

gemini6669@bombadil_rocks thanks, I will give that a shot. I kinda hate the idea of losing the pretty stuff but usability is more importany01:51

urlin2utab compete is the easiest gemini666901:52
alexandrosand then how do i unmount it???01:52
joyuseralexandros in the prog's faq on the site it says: Just "right click" on the dialog list, and select "Change Drive Letter". Then you'll see the mount point dialog, you can add, change or remove any driver letters.01:52
gemini6669urlin2u the first part was a joke, sorry I have kinda been out of the loop for awhile, sorry if I haven't privded you enough info01:52
urlin2ugemini6669, no problem but the channel is a bit busy for chat, :D01:53
gemini6669I haven't had to do this in more years than I care for. things actually just worked or the problem was quickly fixed and found in the forums01:53
gemini6669I haven't been on irc in a few years for a problem that I couldn't solve01:53

t-minusHi guys...01:57
new2netMy calendar (in Unity & Natty 11.04 desktop) is messed up. There are two problems; the first is that when the day changes I must click the calendar twice for it to reflect the correct date. So if I leave my machine on for 3 days and my calendar will be 2 or 3 days off.  The second issue is actually fixed, I guess it just takes a minute to update the time settings (~60 seconds max perhaps).01:57

zykotick9jdm, xut_jc is replying to your question i believe.  My question is why would ssh need a gui?02:01
temporarytaojeremy-4201, i think you need to install an HP-specific program for those types of printers to work02:01
temporarytaohplisp, i think? i've forgotten but i used to have one. try fishing around in synaptic02:02

temporarytaoactually, you can switch back to old-skool gnome. you can choose it when you login. type/choose your login name and look below. :)02:09
somsipjdm: a config will allow you to setup aliases so I can connect to my site with 'ssh somsip', and you can run it in your preferred terminal, and you can share connections so it only has to negotiate a connection the first time if you often have multiple connections to the same machine. there is a man ssh_config and lots of tutorial pages that I've used in the past.02:10

mh512urlin2u: yeah i have ipv6 off02:11
CarlFKyou can resize the partition, but windows may break trying to use it02:11
idlemindalexandros because ms made ntfs and they didn't tell us how to haxor it02:11
alexandrosohh... lol02:12
bombadil_rocksalexandros, also before you do it you need to boot into windows and run a disk cheeck02:12
magn3tsit's also slow as molasses02:12
idlemindmagn3ts every ntfs resize i've ran has gone through pretty fast02:12
bombadil_rocksalexandros, b/c linux can't do a proper disk cheeck of ntfs and if they are any errors it just won't resize it02:13

bombadil_rocksalexandros, no02:20
mh512linurl2: ubuntu 10.10. i just re-enabled ipv6. doesnt seem to solve the problem02:20
mh512doesnt seem to be a browser problem anyway02:21
mh512seems to be a system issue02:21
bombadil_rocksalexandros, or looking at it maybe but I wouldn't02:21
urlin2ualexandros, we are assuming you mean the one you are using no, any others unmount the partition then yes02:21
bombadil_rocksalexandros, linux is incapable of doing an actual disk cheeck, so I wouldn't trust it to do a format either02:23
sgo11hi, it's hard to describe my problem. ubuntu 11.04 natty. with gvim, the chars typed in are not really always up-to-date. eg: 1, if you add a new line, newline not shown. 2, if you type 'hello' really fast, it will show 'h llo'. to solve it, simply use mouse click the window border. it will refresh/update the UI somehow. any ideas?02:23
urlin2umh512, which browser FF 6 is available in a ppa, I doubt it is a system problem other then speed do to a low cpu and ram, trying to load to much which can be blocked with noscript and addblock02:23

Axlinmlncn: Ctrl+Alt+[F1-F6] will bring up a CLI session. Then you can either use "top" to find the program's PID, then hit the "k" key to enter its PID to kill it. Or, if you know the name of the program, use "ps -e|grep <process name>" to get the PID, and use "kill -9 <PID>" to force kill it. Then Ctrl-Alt-F7 to get back to GUI.03:18

prasenjeetpikonia: it works fine for browsers now but when i try anything else (including flash , php code, telnet google.com 80 etc), it doesnt work08:21
ikoniaprasenjeetp: I don't know what you mean by "flash" as flash is run in a browser, as is PHP, so I don't know how your browser is working but you say flash/php isn't08:21

A question about the command "sh" in Ubuntu 11.04: when I have multiple files, e.g. jobs.sh, jobs01, jobs02, jobs03 and I want to use one at a time with sh, on another machine the command stops right when the filenames become ambiguous, i.e. it stops at "sh jobs". On my Ubuntu machine, the "sh" command "intelligently" selects the file ending with .sh automatically. Why?! And can I change that somehow?13:02

tomodachivigneshm: try adding the parameter single  to the kernel command line , and also remove the parameter splash13:07
ichbinderah, the other distro links "sh" to "bash" while ubuntu links to "dash" by default. How can I change that? How can I let sh link to bash? (besides dirty sudo relinking in /bin :) )13:07
=== cmjohnson1 is now known as Guest81602

ichbindertomodachi: enlighten me, please. :)13:08
vigneshm@tomadachi: im sorry.. can u be more detailed.. im a newbee to linux13:08
tomodachiichbinder: scripts use that stuff. and bash and sh ar interpreter of scripts, if they differ, your scripts might break13:08
stianhjhow safe is it to backport say 2.6.38 into lucid lynx?13:09
ichbindervigneshm: the kernel command line is the line that is eexecuted at the very beginning when booting13:09

Piciichbinder: just re-link it manually.13:09
vigneshm@ichbinder: hmm..k13:09
Picitomodachi: bash shouldn't be linked to dash, but dash can be safely linked to bash..13:09
PiciIf that makes any sense.13:09

ichbinderllutz: would you recommend relinking?13:14
llutzichbinder: shouldn't harm13:15
ichbinderllutz: thanks. One last question: why reconfigure dash? Shouldn't it be reconfigure sh or something? Or is sh installed by pkg dash?13:15
llutzichbinder: bash can do all things dash can do, but not vice-versa13:15
ichbinderllutz: kay. Thanks llutz, tomodachi, Pici! Awesome #irc support. :D13:16
llutzichbinder: dash is the package creating the link /bin/sh -> /bin/dash. so reconfigure dash13:16
ichbinderllutz: ah, kay. Thanks!13:16
ichbinderllutz: hm, when running "$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure dash" all I can choose is yes or no for the question if dash "(/bin/sh)" shall be used as default... nothing else.13:18
llutzichbinder: "no" should relink /bin/sh to /bin/bash13:18
ichbinderllutz: so maybe dpkg-reconfigure dash and dpkg-reconfigure bsh?13:18
ichbinderllutz: o'rly!13:19

edbianlovre: any driver you use will be a 'linux' driver.  Sometimes the manufacturer will put out a driver (a linux driver).  I am not familiar with the drivers for this device.  That's the point of the river13:51
antonio_bilygates, it's normal that no rows are affected by the commands i'm typing?13:52
lovreedbian: yes, i know, i was wondering if there are 'generic' drivers i could try, like third party or something... Im going to try to down the interface and set the speed, see if that helps. Be back in a bit13:52

If the module doesn't detected it doesn't show in the lsusb list. Can you help me? I have use the rfkill unlock all command but the modem isn't detected.13:58

dj_beirut-rw-r--r-- 1 nobody nogroup 0 2011-09-21 17:07 /media/test/test_file15:08
ikoniadj_beirut: ok, the fact that the file is owned by the same user when you made it as root, suggests the server (nfs server) is locking the ownership, which is possible with NFS15:08
ikoniadj_beirut: the owner needs to be set either a.) on the server b.) the mount options, if your setup permits it15:08
dj_beirutikonia you mean in fstab where i am mounting this?15:09
ikoniadj_beirut: it's more likley it's locked on the server15:09

ubottuApolloSmile: To view your Windows/Mac partitions see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AutomaticallyMountPartitions - For write access, see !NTFS-3g or !FUSE15:31
ikoniaPolah: it does, but the boot loader is a tricky thing to manage in that situation15:31
Polahikonia: How so?15:31
ikoniaPolah: well, where are you going to put the boot loader ?15:31
Polahikonia: On the USB drive15:32
ApolloSmilereDING IT15:32
compdoca usb memory stick, or ausb external hard drive?15:32
ikoniaPolah: ok, so that means each time you want to use it you'll have to override your motherboard and tell it to boot from the USB drive, is that possible on your machine ?15:32
Polahikonia: Well, USB is set to be selected for boot first. I can also choose which device to boot from temporarily as well15:33
ikoniaPolah: that should be easier to manage15:33
Polahikonia: So in that case can I just configure GRUB as I would normally?15:34
ikoniaPolah: as long as it's on the usb boot loader, and your OS is self contained on the boot loader15:34
ikoniaPolah: sorry, I phrased that bad, as long as the boot loader is onthe USB drive and the OS is self contained fully on the USB, that should be managable15:35
kasihow can I mount a .cdr file in ubuntu?15:35

ikoniaprasenjeetp: I would look at either kickstart for a re-occuring build with changes, or an image based software such as clonezilla to just keep cloning the drives16:26
prasenjeetpikonia: why isnt webmin supported ? any article to read ?16:27
SpiderFredhi how do you call that network authenctication where you can connect to wifi but than can connect to only one site where you login and can use internet?16:27
dr_willis!webmin | prasenjeetp16:27
ubottuprasenjeetp: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.16:27
ikoniaprasenjeetp: it's a project filled with security issues, and the way ubuntu lays out certain config files is incompatible16:27
mneptokprasenjeetp: also, Webmin is a security nightmare.16:27
prasenjeetpApolloSmile: yeah, we want to standardize things16:27
ikoniaSpiderFred: 2 factor ?16:28
prasenjeetpikonia: so, any other suggestions ... want people to be able to do stuff like create virtual domains, databases etc16:28
=== MonkeyDu1t is now known as MonkeyDust
ikoniaprasenjeetp: is these for peoples desktops, or for something like a web hosting business ?16:28
ikoniaprasenjeetp: I'm asking as the purpose will define the tools16:28
prasenjeetpmneptok: this is within the office LAN ... does the security become a concern there too16:28
mneptokprasenjeetp: yes16:29
mneptokprasenjeetp: even more so. as someone with malicious intent already has some degree of access.16:29
SpiderFredikonia: no I mean just one authentication through webclient to use internet16:29
prasenjeetpikonia: its for individual desktops for programmers but they each use their computers as development servers16:29
ApolloSmilehahah ubuntu is using the easy window snap as windows 7 wonders16:29
=== james_ is now known as edwardthefma
ikoniaprasenjeetp: then they should be using tools such as mysql's database tools16:29
ikoniaprasenjeetp: or depending on their systems administrators to manage things like the configs16:30
parami need help[16:30
mneptokprasenjeetp: developers do not need webmin, they need sudo. and build the tools and data needed into your kickstart image (i.e. pre-add the local user accounts to the "mysql" group)16:30
prasenjeetpikonia: sadly, most do not have any insight .. they come from windows background ... i am fighting it hard to get them all to linux16:30
ikoniaprasenjeetp: the mysql tools are gui driven, so should be quite normal to them16:31
mneptokprasenjeetp: Webmin will cause you and your users headaches within a few months. if not weeks.16:31
ikoniaprasenjeetp: mysql on windows is the same tools/config as mysql on linux16:31
mneptokikonia: some are, like Workbench.16:31
ikoniamneptok: which is the tools I suggested16:31
Maartenprasenjeetp: not to be the devil's advocate here..... but would it not be easier to keep them on Windows if they can be productive there? I know we sysadmins always want to convert people, but it isn't always in the best interest of busines.16:32
prasenjeetpany input on apache management16:32
prasenjeetplike creating virtual hosts etc16:32
SavageWolfUh, how would I reinstall a package so it is purged and redownloaded without removing any of it's dependencies?16:32
ikoniaMaarten: it's a valid point.16:32
prasenjeetpMaarten: the license costs for each desktop is huge ... we are finding it hard to handle ... also, once its streamlined, i think people get used to linux too16:33
mneptokprasenjeetp: if a DBA cares about what OS they use, they're not a very good DBA. ;) SQL syntax is SQL syntax, and any text editor can write it. it's the distance between the power-on button and getting to that comfy editor that you need to worry about.16:33
SchalaZealI'm rather curious how my DHCP internet works automatically in Ubuntu yet when I tried Gentoo or Arch Linux it didn't.16:34
ikoniaprasenjeetp: one option is to setup 4 virtual domains as part of the build you deploy and limt them to that16:34
SchalaZealUbuntu has no /etc/rc.conf after all16:34
ikoniaprasenjeetp: I assume you mean apache domains16:34
prasenjeetpmneptok: true ... but there is always a mental block that i have to handle delicately16:34
ikoniaSchalaZeal: it's controlled by gnome in network manager on the desktop16:34
prasenjeetpikonia: thats right, apache virtualhosts16:34
ikoniaprasenjeetp: setup 4 as part of the default build16:34
Maartenyeah there is the license cost, true..... but that amounts to about 3 hours of a web developer's salary, perhaps once a year if you have a MS subscription..... Just saying, as much as I love linux, (I have mixed environment here as well), it isn't always the best solution if you have a large group of windows-minded people.16:35
mang0In AWN is there a way to magnify on hover, like on mac osx dock? I've only managed to get a really really small magnification, and only the icon I'm mousing over....16:35
pythonsnakemang0: no16:36
tadohey. does someone want to save my ipod classic from flying out the window? it has given me endless trouble with ubuntu, and now doesn't mount any longer...16:36
mneptokprasenjeetp: or, identify the most Windows-entrenched staff, and get them VMs in Virtualbox under Ubuntu. let them transition gradually.16:36
prasenjeetpmneptok: Maarten they have got used to linux now ... we have been using mint for over one year now16:37
prasenjeetpjust that we always had webmin (on mint)16:37
ActionParsnipmang0: docky does afaik, and cairodock may too16:37
pythonsnakeprasenjeetp: just try it !16:37
synackfinhow do I remove all the desktop packages to get to a minimal "ubuntu server" state? (ubuntu desktop currently installed)16:37
ikoniaprasenjeetp: if your comfortable with it, use it, just be aware of the issues and risks it causes16:37
pythonsnakeActionParsnip: true16:37
Maartenhmmm... now I have this thin client, and I am re-purposing it as a small linux server, was thinking of putting a webcam on it and using it as a poor man's security system.... any software recommendations?16:37
ActionParsnipsynackfin: uninstall xorg and the rest will be marked for removal16:37
llutzsynackfin: easier to start from 0 with minimal.iso16:38
Maartenprasenjeetp: Ah, if they are already used to linux,no prob :)16:38

prasenjeetppythonsnake: try what ?16:38
ActionParsnipmang0: also simdock does it too (super lightweight)16:38
synackfinActionParnsip: `apt-get purge xorg` only removes two packages: xorg and ubuntu-desktop16:38
mang0ActionParsnip: simdock sounds good, will look into it.16:38
Maartenmneptok: Googling "PM" but not getting a clear answer. Is that a abbreviation for something?16:39
synackfinActionParsnip: I want to remove -everything- non-server related, gnome, wifi tools, etc16:39
mneptokMaarten: "may i private message?"16:39

Maartenmneptok: hahaha! of course ;)16:39
Maartensorry not awake yet, I thought you meant a software package16:40
ActionParsnipsynackfin: also uninstall xserver-xorg and xserver-common16:41

Putrcormyn: thanks, i'll check that17:31
PiciPutr: munin is nice if you like graphs.17:31
CorollaxI've been having upstream internet problems, but network manager doesn't tell me when I get disconnected from the external network (I can still reach the LAN). How do I fix this?17:31
PutrPici: i like graphs :)17:31
cormynPutr: no problem17:31
Putris nagios in the repo and free?17:31
cormynquick question: anyone know of an easy way to detect if a laptop has an extra monitor plugged in on boot to toggle between which xorg.conf file to load for single screen vs dual screen mode?17:32
lovreim connected to LAN with other computers that use Windows, but when i go to network/samba, i dont see any of them, i just get the message: Unable to find any workgroups in your local network. This might be caused by an enabled firewall. But i dont know of any firewall installed. Any idea?17:32
cormynPutr: yes, it's totally free and nagios3 should be in apt17:32
cormynPutr: you can also write your own plugins for things to monitor, their documentation is very good17:32
Putrcormyn: so nagios is a service with a web frontend?17:33

Putrawsome. Let me get that installed :)17:34
Putrand last thing. How do i change the language of the server from the command line? I have a german server that's in german.  I can do most things .. but it annoying17:34
ab847Hi. I am running 11.04 with an Intel Mobile 4 chipset, and cannot change my resolution or boot with Unity. Monitors window says "Monitor: unknown" and no setting can be changed17:34
jasonm_Nagios is extremely configurable and a powerful monitoring tool17:34
cormynPutr: Nagios is Perl-based, but it's pretty easy to install and maintain. I recommend a tool like "nconf" to configure nagios though, as manually tweaking the configuration can be tricky17:35
=== anonymous is now known as Guest53107
cormynPutr: not sure if nconf is in the main apt repo, but it uses php/mysql to manage your hosts, services, etc., and is WAY more intuitive for setting up Nagios: http://www.nconf.org/dokuwiki/doku.php17:35
Putrcorymn: never heard of nconf b4. What does it do?17:35

Putrcormyn what about cacti ... any easyer?17:39
cache_surplusor Satan for that matter17:39
ikoniacpglsn: delete the line and exit visudo - make sure it's not erroring without that line17:39
ActionParsnipab847: I suggest you read:  gedit /var/log/Xorg.0.log17:39
cormynPutr: I haven't used cacti, but as I understand it, cacti does more graphing based on what tools like nagios find for you17:39
cache_surpluscacti is nice, so is cricket17:40
cpglsnikonia: did it, but when i put it again the error stay17:40
cormyncache_surplus: Satan was the original author/maintainer, that's why it's a #$*& to configure17:40
cache_surplusall the same to me, they monitor and nag you about your services/box is down17:40
cache_surplusi have a copy of it somewhere on my tar box17:40
cpglsnActionParsnip: sorry, but i still don't understand "you don't add the switches"17:40
ikoniacpglsn: but when you exit without that line, it saves correctly ?17:40
cpglsnikonia: yes17:40
cache_surplusi still use the perl script to view snort logs with17:40
ikoniacpglsn: are you using spaces or tabs ?17:40
cpglsnikonia: spaces17:41
ikoniacpglsn: it's a tab17:41
cpglsnikonia: between line elements ?17:41
ActionParsnipcpglsn: you are adding the ability for a command to not need password in sudo, the command is the binary 'shutdown'  the switches ar '-h now'  which you do not need to add in the sudoers file17:41
ab847ActionParsnip: http://pastebin.com/wW8Fur2k17:41
ikoniacpglsn: correct17:41

ikoniacpglsn: I've just tested it on my machine and it works fine17:42
cpglsnthe problem is that, the same line in different positions sometimes change the result (error or not)17:43
cpglsnthis is strange17:43

PolahI'm look at the rsync man page and there's the -u option for update, but it also lists -append, --inplace and --append-verify, are all of these options used with -u or are they similar options which I would have to specify separately?17:44
ActionParsnipab847: open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory    maybe a thing17:44
cpglsnikonia: now i but at the biginning of the file, but it ask for a password17:44
ab847ActionParsnip: What can I do about that?17:45
ActionParsnipcpglsn: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sudoers   actually shows how you can add this...17:45
ikoniaPolah: the man page explains the differences17:45
ActionParsnipab847: use the web to find out17:45
ikoniacpglsn: can't explain that, I've just moved mine to the top of the file and it's fine17:46
cpglsnActionParsnip: you roks !17:46
Polahikonia: yes, but they're all listed under -u, there's -u update then just beneath that --append and so on with no shorter version. Is -u only short for --update, or --update --inplace --append --append-verify?17:46
ActionParsnipcpglsn: suprised you didn't check that first17:46
ikoniaPolah: -u is only short for update17:46
cpglsnikonia: ActionParsnip the problem was that, installing joe, it autoset itself as default editor, and, as i can see, joe is not good with sudoers17:46
ikoniaPolah: also be aware of #rsync17:46
Polahikonia: Alright thanks17:46

ab847ActionParsnip: I found a recommendation to dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, which doesn't seem to do anything, and --reinstall xserver-xorg which says "Invalid operation xserver-xorg". I have done both of these before though, and neither did anything to help. Can you think of anything else to try?17:51
ActionParsnipcpglsn: np bro17:51
ActionParsnipab847: you may need an xorg.conf file to specify the driver if udev is not doing its job.17:52
ab847ActionParsnip: I've generated one, and tried filling it in, but it doesn't seem to have any effect. The result seems to be the same with the xorg.conf or without17:53

ActionParsnippk___: so you can undo the setting as you set the proxy in the GUI, the setting may be stored in gconf someplace or another place. Its a simple case of undoing what was done17:59

nullp0interpici tried that already as well18:02
nullp0interPici, no go18:02
Picinullp0inter: let me try something here.. one moment18:02
ab847ActionParsnip: Looking around a bit more; someone has the same problem but in OpenSUSE and he said he fixed it by recreating /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf. I do not have /xorg.conf.d/, is this different in Ubuntu or do I have to create this?18:03
ActionParsnipGuest12849: so the script has a line like:   cd ~/Downloads    and when it ends, you aren't in that folder18:03
ActionParsnipab847: create it, see what happens18:03
Guest12849ActionParsnip,  YES! why? always it has work but not anymore :/18:03
Picinullp0inter: sed -i "s@dbname='abox1029@dbname='rgonet@g" works for me.18:04
ActionParsnipGuest12849: let me test18:04
mbeierlActionParsnip: unfortunately, this is becoming unusable.  I've tried with both radeon and ati proprietary fglrx (which makes things even worse) and no luck18:04
ActionParsnipmbeierl: tried with ubuntu classic?18:05
nullp0interPici, that worked for me...but how is that different from what i had?18:05
Guest12849ActionParsnip, http://paste.ubuntu.com/694650/18:05
nullp0interpici i see the diff, i didnt try double quote non escaped single quotes18:05
ab847ActionParsnip: What is the command? I tried gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf which worked to make xorg.conf but isn't allowing it now18:06
ActionParsnipGuest12849: yeah same, not sure why. I'd ask in #bash. Maybe the change dir only exists in the scope of the script18:07
Guest12849ActionParsnip, i have made script where is 93 line of code. it has worked before but after this "bug" it hasnt worked :/18:07

Maartenprobably old news but..... say you only have that old 128 Mb USB flash drive available, your CD drive just broke down, and you really want to install ubuntu..... Use this: http://netbootcd.tuxfamily.org/ - a ISO file of 10 Mb that can be extracted to a USB drive as well, will connect to ethernet (wired only), and then download the distro and version of your choice, and start installing it. Really neat :) - just thought I would share, I used it to18:13
Maartenput Ubuntu on a beefed up thin client. :)18:13

glebihanhagus, it should be "sudo apt-get remove postgresql" (or "sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove postgresql" if you want to also remove packages that are no longer needed)18:31

cvanceHello, I was working with a company that had a really nice vnc access portal. Each workstation was running a little daemon. When the machine was on, it would connect to a central management server, and when IT wanted to remotely control a workstation, they would log into a web portal on the lan, and it would have a listing of all active computers on the network.19:11
cvanceDoes anyone know of a open source software which kinda does the same thing?19:11
usr13cvance: Well, you could just have launchers for each system  on your network.19:12
cvanceusr13: can you elaborate a little bit more please?19:12
Dan48pscarleo, i have done this before and have not had any problems.  i usually shrink the windows partition from within windows and then the ubuntu installer allows me to install in the unallocated space.  This time however it does not recognize that anything is on the disk.  The same thing happens with debian and xubuntu installers.19:12
qincvance: Machines can "register" on website using curl (any language would be ok).19:13
scarleoDan48p: I know, I was just kidding, I've done it too although it was a long time ago. Not sure about how to fix your problem19:14
usr13cvance: Well, there are a number of ways you can do it, but if you have everyone on static IPs it would be easy to have launchers for each system, just hame them appropriately and click on the one you want and a VNC window just pops up.19:14
cvanceusr13, yeah, I have static ip's assigned, I just being lazy and seeing if anyone knows of some neatly prepared package that does what i'm looking for.19:15
usr13cvance: I just use tightvnc  and   x11vnc19:15
cvanceIf not, no sweat, I can just run the servers and connect because I assigned static ips19:15
cvanceI forgot what my last employer used, but it was kinda neat but very expensive.19:16

BluesKajF3ro, vlc19:17
F3rovlc will do that?19:17
F3rokewl, i will try it, tyvm19:17
cvanceah, i forgot to mention that I am running windows on the workstations19:17
usr13cvance: But if you like names instead of numbers, just fill in the hosts file with them and they can be c1, c2, c3, c4   etc.19:18
scarleomrstibbons: install pavucontrol, on input pull right channel down to 0, untick allow skype to automatically adjust my volume settings in Skype settings19:18
usr13cvance: Doesn't matter.19:18

cvancemore like, I'm looking for suggestions. They would all work fine I think, but wanted a little opinion or two.19:18

KacoDarkenvy: switch to macosx ;-)19:37
Darkenvyzip/rar simply throw everything into a file19:37
Darkenvykaco, I run osx, windows and linux.19:37
Darkenvykaco my backups are of my game server19:38
F3rou could just rstore ur backup and try again, or not...19:38
warmax26but if i try intalling wubi again will it recognize that its installed and that it needs to uninstall a previous version?19:38
variousDarkenvy, look into rshapshot19:38
warmax26or does it need the reg entry to be able to do that19:38
KacoDarkenvy, yeah i was joking, because that is what Time Machine does in macosx :)19:38
F3roif u made a backup, it would still be there...19:39
h00kDarkenvy: consider checking out Deja Dup19:39

DarkenvyI already have the backup files!19:40
warmax26im running windows now tho19:40
DarkenvyI am purging old information. I mean the game folder only increases by 4MB/day19:40
warmax26i need to uninstall ubuntu from my comp19:40
variousWhats better? running pvcreate on a partition "/dev/sda1" or on a whole disk "/dev/sda"?  Does anyone know?  And why?19:40
Darkenvythus, I should be able to only compress the first backup of the month and have the other 29 backups be only 4MB each19:41
h00kDarkenvy: yeah, you should check out duplicity or deja-dup, those backup systems will do differentials as well as encryption if you want19:41
leepingoh sorry! :)19:41
hook`Darkenvy: ill call ubottu any time i want19:41
Darkenvybut those programs will only starting today. not consolidate my current files?19:41

h00kDarkenvy: check out the man page of tar, there's a differential flag19:44
Darkenvyand it didnt say 'hey both these files are only 4MB different! perhaps I should consoludate'19:44

=== Guest91659 is now known as epzil0n
h00kDarkenvy: -d will do diff, -A will append, -u will update19:45
h00kDarkenvy: check out the man page, you may find something there if that helps19:45
Darkenvyso ide probably: create tar with first file. add new file to tar with -d ?19:45
F3ro-r will append19:46

DarkenvyI have 8 months of abckups19:49
h00kDarkenvy: gotcha.19:49
DarkenvyI need to consoludate and keep these files (yes I go back t them sometimes)19:49

glebihantoddnine, I don't think so, I think VirtualBox needs a gui to run, but I'm not sure21:08
zykotick9toddnine, KVM requires your CPU to have virtualization support - but it does seem to have the fastest CPU speed of any of the VM software out there21:08
Noobsaucewhere do i set that?21:09
AshexSo this leads me to believe something in networking was recently updated and I'm trying to confirm21:09
MonkeyDu1tNoobsauce: alt-f221:09
GinoManyou could also do nohup gksudo <command> 2>/dev/null >/dev/null21:09

fructoseAnd who can I rage at about this?21:10
devishhas anyone any idea aboyut21:10
zykotick9toddnine, kvm is very cool, i wasn't so impressed with libvirt - BUT many of the features you probably want are from libvirt21:10
Noobsauceok more ??  sorry I'm learning linux.  now I have the run program window what do I do with it.21:10
yeatsdevish: it's the linux kernel21:10
GinoMandevish: it's the kernel21:10
GinoManya, that21:10
devishso why its in the update21:10
devishi laready compiled the new one21:11
yeatsdevish: because the kernel is updated from time to time21:11
MonkeyDu1tNoobsauce: what do you want to do?21:11
yeats!kernel | devish21:11
ubottudevish: The core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)21:11
devishyeats, the kernel.org was down today all the time21:11
devishis it not the compromised one21:11
NoobsauceI want to be able to run programs thru the gui with sudo. click them like windows.21:12
yeatsdevish: the update is from Ubuntu, not kernel.org21:12
MonkeyDu1tNoobsauce: do NOT do that21:12
devishyeats, yeah21:12
genii-aroundMonkeyDu1t: kworker is not a part of kde or gnome or any other dekstop. It is a kernel process which schedules jobs to be processed.21:12
NoobsauceI'm sorry I mean run installations21:12
rubbsNoobsauce: always use gksu to run your graphical things at root. But keep in mind running normal things as root is frowned upon.21:12
MonkeyDu1twin is vulnerable to malware, because of admin access21:12
yeatsdevish: not sure what you're asking...21:12
zykotick9Noobsauce, it's MUCH better to learn to use GNU/Linux properly.  Although it's a struggle at first.  Don't run everything as sudo.21:13
rubbsNoobsauce: by normal things I mean firefox etc.21:13
MonkeyDu1tNoobsauce: now you want admin access in linux21:13
fliebelWhy doesn't Ubuntu support the screencast feature baked into Gnome 3?21:13
NoobsauceI know I miss spoke I mean when I need to install something I want to just click it and run the install without command line typing everything21:13
devishyeats, i am not asking anything just i am worried see this http://kernel.org/21:14
zykotick9fliebel, because ubuntu doesn't use Gnome3 could be one reason21:14
ubottuGnome 3 is not currently supported on Ubuntu. A PPA for natty is available at https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3 but these packages are EXPERIMENTAL and UNSTABLE, will break Unity and possibly other parts of your system, and cannot be downgraded safely.21:14
fructoseCan anyone tell me what this says... I am locked out of ubuntu forums because I failed my password 5 times... http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=22212721:14
MonkeyDu1tNoobsauce: if you want a system that works like win, then use win21:14
devishyeats, and also this linux.com21:14
zykotick9MonkeyDu1t, +1 ;)21:14
Polahfliebel: Because it doesn't support GNOME3 yet.21:14
yeatsdevish: that issue doesn't really have anything to do with Ubuntu - kernel.org (as you mentioned) was compromised...21:14
Noobsauce@Monkeydult oh......   if it's like that then why is there a fancy gui ???21:15
fliebelOh, right... I somehow associated Unity with Gnome 321:15
devishyeats, but for me ubuntu is after linux21:15
Polahfliebel: Nope, based on GNOME2. GNOME3 will be supported with 11.1021:15
devishyeats, i hope you are getting me21:15
yeatsdevish: nope - not understanding ;-)21:16
PolahNoobsauce: To make the system a bit easier to use.21:16
fliebelalmost there... :) So will it be Unity based on Gnome 3, or just plain Gnome 3?21:16
Noobsaucewell that is what i'm asking.  I'm trying to learn not get hated on.21:16
devishyeats, thats what was talking about G>n21:17
Polahfliebel: Well GNOME will stop shipping with 11.10. 11.10 will only ship with Unity from then onwards, but GNOME3 will be available in the repositories. Unity is based on either GNOME2 or 3 actually, I only know it's based on GNOME.21:17
xanguafliebel: unity runs on top of gnome21:17
MonkeyDu1tNoobsauce: here's my advice,  get used to the password, it's part of the linux way21:17
yeatsdevish: sorry - I'm still not understanding - might just be me though - ask the full channel your question and maybe someone can help21:17

bindiWhy do so many posts on the ubuntu forums require you to be logged in?21:19
NoobsauceI'm not afraid of the password. I'm trying to learn linux and I found out from around the net that you can run installs from the gui. I'm just asking how. I would like to paly around in a familiar setting while I venture forth on learning command line21:19
fructoseApparently the forums tell web crawlers not to cache the content and then require login. I have no idea why anyone in the Ubuntu community would be stupid enough to think that is a good idea21:19
MonkeyDu1tNoobsauce: it's called update manager21:19
bindiyeah well.. i've had answers on google, required me to log in.. went back, took cached version, and worked wonders :-)21:19
zykotick9Noobsauce, ubuntu-software-center or synaptic will allow GUI installs of software from the repository21:19
MonkeyDu1tNoobsauce: zykotick9 is correct21:20
NoobsauceThanks zykotick9, the first non sarcastic answer.  I can see i better get my knowledge from somewhere else21:20

savidHi, I'm trying to start a development webserver on port 8000, and it's saying the port is in use.  What's the best way to find out what process is using aport?   I've tried  "lsof -i :8000", but get no results.21:59
kasihow do I get cups to print again?22:00
toodidaqin....i understood that, the friend needs the pwd and ID to access?22:00
Polahsavid: Why 8000? Why not 80 or 8080?22:00
qintoodida: This will be source of my knowledge: http://edigitales.org/file-sharing-on-ubuntu-one/22:01
savidPolah, because that's the port that's in use.  I want to know what's using it.22:01
Polahsavid: Use a different port?22:01
savidPolah,  that's not my question.22:01
savidPolah, I want to know how to find out what is using that port.22:01
Polahsavid: netstat can show open ports. However, it would be simpler (and for a webserver make more sense, since HTTP uses 80 and 8080) to use another port22:02
nixmaniackhow to *flush dns cache* in Ubuntu?22:02
Polahkasi: look in /var/log/dpkg.log for the programs uninstalled from that command then reinstall them22:03
savidPolah,  django's default web develeopment port is port 8000,  also known as http-alt22:03
kasiPolah, but how come it deleted /usr/bin/google-chrome ??22:03
Polahsavid: 80 is standard http, 8080 is alternate, not 800022:03
synackfinhow do I get a list of files installed in a package?22:03
qintoodida: Usually you do not give your password to anyone. "Usually" you ought to translate as "Never"22:04
kasiPolah, dpkg still said that the package is installed, but the binary was missing22:04
Polahkasi: Because you gave it a wildcard and thus it probably removed a lot more than you wanted it to22:04
synackfinsimilar to rpm -ql (pkg) but for dpkg?22:04
toodidaqin.....did you ever actually use ubuntu one?22:04
Polahkasi: purge with aptitude (aptitude --purge packagename, then reinstall. Configuration files will be removed by purging, mind22:04

rypervenchePolah: Don't even need the --, "aptitude purge packagename" works just fine :)22:05
Polahrypervenche: Ah, good to know.22:05
kasiPolah, it was *removed*22:05
savidPolah, well,  NMAP reports it as http-alt.  Either way, does it matter?   it's the standard for Django.22:05
kasiPolah, uninstalling the printer and reinstalling it now made it work again22:05
Polahkasi: You could try forcing reinstall.22:05
oakmanhow do i copy multiple files in a directory using  xfs_rtcp?  big reward22:05
kasiPolah, yes, I know how to fix that ,but I now wonder whether apt-get did delete some other random stuff, too22:06
Polahsavid: I'm just saying the standard for http is 80, or 8080 sometimes. Since your 8000 is being used by something, it would be better to just configure the webserver to use another port rather than stop whatever is using 8000 which if you want to maintain over time if it's a service, you'll need to reconfigure that anyway22:06
qinoakman: for i in *; do xfs_rtcp $i /new/path/; done;22:07
savidPolah,  I've been using Django for 3 years.   Port 8000 is not generally used by anything else.  I'm assuming my current problem is that there's another django webserver running somewhere.   Hence the reason I would like to find the process and kill it.22:07
toodidaqin: do you know how many group in #ubuntu chat? how to check it? I want to ask the specific question in a specicfic group?22:08
Polahsavid: Look in service --status-all, and ps -A for the process. If so, perhaps use that webserver instead of a new one, assuming Django can host multiple sites.22:08
qinoakman: Or maybe disregard. Just went to xfs_rtcp man page.22:09
savidPolah,  it's a development server, not a system-wide service.22:09
iotoodida: did you want a list of #ubuntu- channels?22:09
Polahkasi: It could've removed them due to you having broken their dependencies. It may also have matched package descriptions as well, for example I just simulated apt-get remove libreoffice* and it lists python-uno as well.22:09
toodidayes qin.22:10
