psinghitguru, and it sounds like the user wants the calendar to be stored locally-- not connected online.  Is that correct?00:01
itgurupsingh the calender is to be imported into a *heaves* exchange calender .... (damn you OWA) :)00:05
psinghitguru, Ha Ha.  Thunderbird esports as *.ics or *.cvs.  Would one of these work for you when you "re-import" into exchange?00:06

HedgeMageHey, all.  I'm an experienced Linux user, and I'm trying to teach a total newbie some Ubuntu basics via VNC as he's not quite 100% CLI-ready yet (we're getting there).  He doesn't control the NAT he's behind.  Port 22 is forwarded to his machine, but nothing else.  AFAIK vino can't be made to listen on anything other than 5900 (if it can please correct me).  I'm considering trying to help him02:16
HedgeMageconfigure it so I can connect via an SSH tunnel, but that's so far over his head it would be an onerous undertaking.  We could use IPtables to locally forward port 22 to port 5900, but that sounds equally hard to talk him through.Is there an easier-for-newbies way to solve this problem (I don't care if it's easy for me, I know what I'm doing and control my own network)?02:17
DasEiHedgeMage: google teamspeak02:18
somsipHedgeMage: not what your asking, but would Skype share screen be of use? Or Teamviewer, if that can be set to use non-standard port?02:20
DasEiHedgeMage: or ssh -X, iff 22 is already free02:20
idefixis debian better than ubuntu?02:20
nac-godfatherAnyone know if it's possible to pair a different model wireless keyboard receiver to another wireless keyboard?02:20
bkfitzHedgeMage: ufw?02:20
xanguaidefix: depends of your needs and this is not the channel for that ;) stick to the topic please02:20
idefixwhen I hover over my Floopy Disk in nautilus it says "Mount and open Floppy Drive" however when I click or double click it nothing happens, what's wrong?02:21
DasEierr, http://tinyurl.com/6knqrv2 ,HedgeMage02:21
nac-godfatherI friggen had my cool wireless keyboard shit the bed when I plugged in the reciever and it sparked.  Supposedly causing a power circuit to be switched off/on.  They say it can be fixed by doing a full reset/cmos reset, but I don't know...02:21
sammycan anyone suggest a good wireless scanner? I'm trying to choose a channel for a new wifi router and I'd like to see what channels are already saturated around here...02:23
bkfitzsammy: iwscanner02:24
g0rssammy: there is a wifi radar ?!02:24
g0rssammy: you'd find several02:24
sammybkfitz: all I saw was a 3rd party package for iwscanner, and I don't like installing 3rd party packages without reviewing the code. good suggestion, though, that's the first one I found, too.02:24
idefixjust because I'm old doesn't mean I can't still use floppy disks...02:25
g0rsidefix: what do you mean?02:25
idefixit seems nobody wants to help a weirdo who still uses floppy disks in 201102:25
g0rsidefix: what about them? are you unable to mount a floppy drive?02:26
idefixit's not possible in nautilus02:26
nac-godfathersammy, use airodump-ng, from aircrack-ng02:26
g0rsidefix: i stopped using them around 200202:26
nac-godfatherworks great02:26
nac-godfatheror wicd02:26
bkfitzsammy: source is in the download... i trust it and it works great02:26
PxGaZuZhey everyone02:26
idefixI guess getting myself a USB stick wouldn't hurt02:26
idefixbut for now02:26
g0rssammy: aircrack and airdump are good for hacking too although their driver support is limited unless you are using atheros02:27
nac-godfatheror you could simply use "iwlist <interface> scan" and then grep your results to your liking02:27
PxGaZuZcan anyone help me figure out how to create some space so i can dual boot?02:27
g0rsidefix: usb had replaced floppy disks02:27
PxGaZuZheres an image i get from gparted02:27
OerHeksidefix >   sudo mount /dev/fd0 /floppy -t vfat   ( found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount  )02:27
bkfitzsammy: how about kismet02:27
nac-godfatheranyone know how I can reset a probably power circuit breaker that was blown from ESD on my keyboard receiver.02:28
manbra_linuxhey.  i want to play a game with a friend on hte same computer.  I'm thinking i could have two Xs, one for eahc monitor.  can i 'bind' a mouse and keyboard to each x?02:28
idefixhow do you get out of the man mount command?!02:28
nac-godfatherdmesg gives this when plugging in my keyboard receiver:  new full speed USB device number 19 using ohci_hcd    device not accepting address 19, error -6202:28

PxGaZuZ can anyone help me figure out how to create some space so i can dual boot?02:29
sammybkfitz: thanks, I was hoping there was something already in a repo. kismet is what I used years ago but its configuration is more than I need. i was really hoping for something a bit more simple.02:30
bkfitzsammy: yep... it's called iwscanner ;)02:30
sammyg0rs: I think I am actually using an atheros card, I'll look into aircrack.02:30
sammybkfitz: ha :P I'm just always so skeptical of projects that have been around for a while but have no official debian package02:30
PxGaZuZno help eh? fine....02:31
g0rssammy: it might need some work too although if you are debian its much easier as there are deb packages02:31
Nicolas_Leonida2ok my cron is definitely not working on time, are there logs I could see why?02:31
idefixoerheks are you sure floppy disks are vfat?02:32
g0rsidefix: floppy disks usually have fat1202:32
philipballewcan i open a document made with pages in ubuntu02:32
bkfitzsammy: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-834947.html02:33
g0rsidefix: on linux im not really sure , probably you can format them with ext202:33
sammybkfitz: sorry, don't get me wrong, I end up installing things without reviewed packages a lot, I was just being lazy and hoping there was a more simple scanner in the repos. thanks for the suggestions, g0rs and nac-godfather02:34
sammyI'll use iwscanner. maybe I'll nominate it for a getdebs package.02:34
bkfitzsammy: yeah... i understand.  Looks like this one is pretty vetted though... not sure why ubuntu hasn't packaged it or at least auth'd it02:35
nac-godfatherbuild from source, always :)02:35
g0rssammy: you might try wifi radar . I'm not really sure about the name02:35
idefixI guess OerHeks is part of the Wicca trying to screw things up for all non-wiccans02:35
g0rssammy: it lists diferent wlans and their channels02:35
sammyg0rs: i saw you mention that but I didnt know what you meant02:35

bonez2046ActionParsnip: I ran those both... if I kill pulseaudio, what starts it back up?02:50
ActionParsnipjamescarr_: unity2D replaces ubuntu classic in oneiric, so you may want to switch to xfce02:50
jamescarr_ActionParsnip, xfce!? No way!02:50
ActionParsnipbonez2046: its a setting in gnome, it is a required item so is autostarted02:50
jamescarr_ActionParsnip, xfce is good if I was running a 386sx :)02:50
ActionParsnipjamescarr_: gnome in ubuntu will be purely unity based in futire releases02:51
ActionParsnipjamescarr_: its a fine desktop, looks and smells like gnome2 as well02:51

bambanxqin when i pres tab i see this wine1.3-gecko  wine-bin       winetricks03:39
Rota1.3 version03:39
Gasseuszromayn Really, running a DHCP server separate from your router is overkill.03:39
bambanxqin buddy03:39
mediapcg0rs: I do get 1080i (tv is 1080i) but when I make a movie full screen the edges go outside of the viewable area03:39
g0rsmediapc: very interesting. I wanted to try something like that but postponed it for a while. I wanted to hook up a tv to a computer through wlan because i usually dont use so much bandwidth on my wlan router03:39
qinbambanx: Remove all or them. sudo apt-get purge wine1.3 wine1.3-gecko winetricks03:40
zromaynGasseus, have you setup dhcp3 in ubuntu server before? If so, can you help me set it up correctly?03:40
qinbambanx: And: rm -r ~/.wine (please carefull)03:40
bambanxqin  /usr/share/wine/gecko' say me it snot empy and i cannot unistall03:40
slimHello I am new and am running an old compaq armada e500 using ubuntu 10.0 and barely know how to run it. I am having troubles running flash. Can someone please help Me .???..Oh and I am a newbie...03:40
cakeb0sszromayn how many computers? and why isnt simply using a router with the dhcp server enabled sufficient?03:41
Gasseuszromayn I've tried, its nearly impossible, and its overkill, unless you need it for some hyper-special purpose that is non-existant.03:41
mediapcIm able to stream video from the linksys e4200 router (usb drive) no problem with linux. sucks I cant see it very well in HDMI03:41
GasseusYour router will do a better job at assigning IP's which you can use.03:41
bambanxqin what cani do buddy?03:42
qinbambanx: You can remove it later, after: dpkg -l wine1.3-gecko will return that there is not package.03:42
ZeloZelosslim did you try the software center? type flash in the search box it should show up03:42
akston@slim - Open the Ubuntu SW Centre from the gnome menu, type 'flash' into the search box - you'll find a package called Adobe Flash Plugin (Installer for the Adobe Flash Plugin)03:42
qinbambanx: Or try: sudo apt-get autoremove03:42
akston@slim It's kind of like an 'app store'03:43
bambanxqin  sudo apt-get purge wine1.3-gecko03:44
bambanx this say me , it cannot remove because is a virtual package03:44
Otend...Nnnnnope, BIOS has nothing.03:44
slimoh ya thanks guys i  will thank you i will try that03:44
g0rsmediapc: are you using an external wlan card for connecting to the tv?  is it not possible to connect the tv to your wlan router?03:44
qinbambanx: Uhm: sudo apt-get purge wine1.303:44
zromaynGasseus, I just want to be able to get it working, that's all.03:44
slimI am very new to this03:45
Gasseuszromayn but WHY?03:45
mediapcg0rs: tv does not have a place for a wlan. right now the pc is using a 300Mbps usb wireless adapter03:45
w0_is compiz cool? (sounds dumb, i know. hah)03:46
zromaynGasseus, I just told you, because I want to get it working. That's all.03:46
bambanxthanks qin you are like a angel god send me bro03:46
bjoswald83It's cool if you like cubes and wobbly windows03:46
bjoswald83Otherwise I wouldn't recommend it03:46
g0rsmediapc: are all of the connections in your wlan router full? it usually has 256 ethernet ports03:46
qinbambanx: Sweet.03:46
w0_seriously is compiz a configuration tool? or a program that runs all the time?03:46
bjoswald83It's basicly desktop 3D support for window effects03:47
qinw0_: It is compisitor03:47
DasEiw0_: which gcard are you using ?03:47
bjoswald83And it's the backbone of Unity03:47

w0_uhm .. integrated on an AMD board ... lemme check what kinda chips we're eating ....03:47
w0_well AMD cpu board03:47
ubottuPlease give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."03:47
akston@w0_ The dekstop cube thing is a 'cool' way of organizing your workspaces on the faces of a cube, I find it useful because you can set it up to be translucent and see other things that are going on03:48
bjoswald83I think it's cool because it's unique03:48
bjoswald83You can only do so much with Alt-Tab03:48
qinbambanx: locate wine - that one is crude, but dpkg -l wine1.3 tell you what system see.03:48
DasEiw0_: rather less good idea, as compiz sucks quite lot of graphic power, might run in trouble other then bigger decent cards, nvidia works best for me03:49
zromaynhas anybody here played with dhcp3-server with ubuntu 11.04?03:49
w0_akston - cool is cool .. but I prefer eleagance.  makles me feel like a ninha03:49

g0rsmediapc: my wlan router is also very slow i'm not getting more than 2megabytes/sec . If i use ethernet on the router its about 3 megabytes per second.

DasEiphlak_user: but you can also easily loose bookmarks or parts of profiles as we see03:53
mikodoslim, again just check for "flash in synaptic or software centre, (do a search for flash), they will show if you have installed any other flash applications earlier, if so un-install them before installing adobe flash03:53
w0_on a side note, would adding a vid card to my system that uses integrated video, make my puter run faster?03:53
mediapcg0rs: i take it the printer is not n though. The way I understand the router to work is if there is anything connected to the router that is not n the devices that are connected that are n end up connecting in g or b for compatability03:54
phlak_userDasEi: ok03:54
DasEiw0_: yes, memory alone03:54
mediapcg0rs: unless its a dual band router you cannot have something connected with n and something else with a/b/g03:54
g0rsmediapc: that could be a reason . I did explicitly configure my router to be in wireless n mode only.  The printer connects with wireless n mode.03:55
w0_dasei -- that's what I needed to hear. thx!03:55
g0rsmediapc: or perhaps the printer is connecting in abg modes.03:55

DasEiw0_: until you are a hardcore gamer even the older gforce 8600 (and higher) are fine n cheap03:56
mediapcg0rs: check and see if the printer is n capable. it might also be that the driver you are using is not connecting in N. Mine was not because of an issue with the ralink driver provided to ubuntu03:56
g0rsmediapc: what is the maximum speed you got on a wireless n router?03:56

whodafckhmmm should I just install ubuntu on my asus g53?04:00
mediapcg0rs: yes I dont need more than ~120 Mbps to show 1080i without issues which I do get with the setup I have now04:00
Gasseuswhodafck are you absolutely sure you don't need windows?04:00
whodafckit took me 3 hours to figure out how to install vm workstation tools04:01
whodafcki pretty sure i need it bro04:01
magn3tsCan anyone tell me why Ubuntu has simply stopping repeating my keypresses?04:01
g0rsmediapc: 120Mbps is 15 megabytes per second04:01
Gasseuswhodafck then don't04:01
DasEiw0_: 4 g is fine for most uses, rather rip the one if it's another brand and then tune timings, or get similar modules, both channels oc04:01
Gasseusmagn3ts hit the right control key04:01
whodafckthis is hard04:01

g0rsphlak_user: i can try a http server which stores files if that helps04:22

g0rsphlak_user: if i use wget04:26
phlak_userg0rs: i am unable to understand your goal; are you testing your internet connection throughput or your network interface card (wired or wireless)?04:26
Gasseusgrumpy I don't know, its just something everyone says to check on minecraft because if you listen off of, you can only ocnnect to the interface you assigned it to.04:26
grumpygrumpy: ah, thanks, i didnt know that04:27
g0rsphlak_user: im trying to test throughput of network interface card (wired or wireless)04:27

Sidveegrumpy, Gasseus My wireless light is blinking when ever there is data transfer. Instead it was static with white light before. How to fix this bug?04:28
g0rsphlak_user: yes it lower than the speed of ethernet or wlan link04:28
phlak_userg0rs: hence my advice to test it between two machines connected back-to-back04:28
GasseusSidvee Don't involve me in something I'm clueless about04:28
g0rsphlak_user: how ot use iperf on a wlan router. can we test the data rate of a wlan router with that tool?04:28
grumpySidvee: thats probably going to be a kernel issue, it affected my girlfriend as well, and that is a very involved fix.  i suggest filing a bug on launchpad.net and hopefully it will get fixed "soon".04:29
phlak_userg0rs: yes, just put the wlan router in between the two machines04:29
g0rsphlak_user: can you think of the other machine as your wlan router?04:29
grumpyGasseus, phlak_user: it looks like its listening on port 43595, which I dont remember setting it up that way...04:29
usr13phlak_user: g0rs Or just connect directly.04:29
Sidveegrumpy, thanks. :)04:30
phlak_userg0rs: no you cant; cos the specs are different for both04:30

Guest13790Hi all. Anyone here familiar with Evolution? I just tried it and noticed I have no emails left in my email account. How can I fix this?04:31
grumpyGasseus: well i just restarted sshd and the netstat command shows the updated PID, so i think its running its just listening to the wrong port.  ill have to investigate more.  thanks though!04:31
phlak_usergrumpy: you can ssh -p 43595 user@localhost to find out04:31
qingrumpy: To see if your ssh server listen (and on what port): sudo service ssh status; sudo netstat -tulp; (on server machine)04:32

phlak_userGuest13790: on your server? theres an option to "leave messages on server" in Evolution04:32

eaglestarActionParsnip, no i dont04:46

magn3tsbrian_, take it as an opportunity to move away from hotmail.04:49
brian_Hi Phlak_user. I had an idea. What if I used Thunderbird and imported from Evolution? Would that put everything back in Hotmail?04:50
magn3tsbrian_, no.04:50
brian_magn3ts: I don't have many choices.04:50
magn3tsYou'd need to be able to access hotmail from Evolution and copy the emails back up.04:50
magn3tsbrian_, I'd recommend connecting via IMAP and then uploading them.04:50
magn3tsAnd not use pop going forward.04:50
brian_magn3ts: I'm really a noob.04:51
ShattersDasEi, would using wine make this possible? or any easier?04:51
phlak_userbrian_: theres another option; apparently hotmail sends them to the trash folder which might not be empty; so you can go to trash and mark them as unread (or move to inbox)04:51

phlak_userAlexLibman:  i wouldnt do it any other way (esp if i committed harakiri) :)05:55
ActionParsnipToras: take it elsewhere please, this is ubuntu support only, not pathetic rant channel05:55
CanidWhat, you mean "sudo ripperx" ?05:55
Guest40876phlak_user, Its a dump from a game running under wine ...Sorry for the late reply05:55
phlak_userGuest40876: what do you expect to learn from it?05:55
CanidOkay, I'll try that...05:55
Guest40876phlak_user, Hoping to find out why the game is not running05:56
phlak_userdamno: not via packages; you can install one and download the other manually and run from there05:56
Canidsudo ripperx is just hanging there as well. No good05:57
AlexLibmanDo I still do that from the rescue root shell?  Do I remount the root partition as rw?05:57
phlak_userGuest40876: core dumps are generally in hex; and make sense more to debuggers/developers; you could use gdb to load the dump or a hex editor to view it05:57
damnophlak_user: how abt if I get the dev package from synaptic?05:57
airtonixi'm running a 10.04 server on a live site, and to `pip install psycopg2-2.4` i need to `sudo apt-get install libpq-dev python-dev`,  and one of the deps for that is libssl0.9.8 << i notice in the changelog for it at some point it says something about a system restart required :  http://dpaste.com/626865/... i forget to check what version i might have installed .05:57

RodrigoGI have ubuntu 10.04 Lucid installed, with a ati FirePRO 2450 Multiview. I'm a real n00b when it comes to ubuntu but I had a misconfiguration issue earlier and my boss yelled at me to fix it05:58
airtonixSetiAmon: moblocker isn't a full on firefwall... it's just a IP address blocker interface to iptables05:59
ActionParsnipthanks bazhang05:59
RodrigoGI tried deleting the driver following some instructions but apparently they were incomplete as I now have a black screen when booted05:59
airtonixActionParsnip: refresh my memory on how to check what version of a package i have installed please05:59
phlak_userRodrigoG: if you press Ctl+Alt+F1, you might get a terminal05:59
RodrigoGTried, but no luck at times06:00
SetiAmonok.I'm running firestarter but there doesn't appear to be a "training" mode in firewalls like i'm used to?06:00
RodrigoGis there a way to access a recovery menu? maybe do a rollback?06:00
fainaairtonix: dpkg --status <package name>06:01
airtonixfaina: cheers06:01
CanidI give up. I can't lose any more sleep over this tonight06:01

RodrigoGphlak_user: I see, I have the installation dvd which gives me live access (where i'm at06:03
RodrigoGbut it didn't show any option to repair06:04
phlak_userRodrigoG: what were the grub options on that DVD?06:04
phlak_userRodrigoG: grub *menu* options06:04
RodrigoGphlak_user: you lost me there, total n00b here06:04
RodrigoGoh, menu options were try ubuntu(livecdish) or install06:05
AlexLibmanI wasn't able to fix the problem I caused with `usermod -G wheel username` by running `usermod -G username username` - still says username not in sudoers.  All I did to /etc/sudoers is uncomment the wheel line.  What am I supposed to do exactly?06:05
RodrigoGphlak_user: when I try install it says something about installing both on the same drive or deleting old installation and using the whole hard drive06:06
AlexLibmanAlso...  I got myself banned from the official Ubuntu forums for ranting (on appropriate threads) about Copyfree licenses being superior to Copyleft.  Now I have no place to get support for my system76 laptop...  Any suggestions for getting myself unbanned?06:07
Woohooois there a tool on linux that allows viewing of gpu card details like gpu-z does on windows?06:07

wartrendwho is your isp alexlibman06:08
AlexLibmanwartrend: since I make no effort to mask my IP, why would you need to ask?06:09
phlak_userAlexLibman: do you have this in your sudoers -> %sudo   ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL06:09
wartrendjoin the ubuntu irc and ask in there. only  a 1000 people in there06:09
wartrendwell if you got a big isp like say comcast you can change your ip06:10
phlak_userAlexLibman: and this -> %admin ALL=(ALL) ALL06:10
wartrendwrong window lol06:10
TelrothWhy does smart think that 75 million read errors is normal?06:10
phlak_userAlexLibman: and ensure that username is member of admin in /etc/group06:10

bambanxwhat software allow to edit multiples images?06:12
ActionParsnipbambanx: gimp can edit as many images as you want06:12
RodrigoGbambanx: GIMP06:12
kfizz1bambax, imagemagick allows some command line options to edit a batch of images.06:13
AlexLibmanNevermind, I didn't modify /etc/sudoers, so, yes, that line exists as in the original.06:13
kfizz1Been a while since I've used it, tho, so I probably wouldn't be much specific help.06:13
Shattersso, I somehow lost admin privileges on ubuntu default account. not sure what to do.06:13
RodrigoGphlak_user: any suggestions?06:13
AlexLibmanAh, the "admin" is the group I want.  I thought it was same groupname as the username.  So just `usermod -G admin username`?06:14
phlak_userRodrigoG: when did you install the OS?06:14
AlexLibmanwartrend: I might be a Copyfree """troll""", but I never sockpuppet.06:14
wartrendnot sure what you mean?06:15
wartrendI don't pull on my ding dong06:15
RodrigoGI don't even know, it's a workstation at my workplace, it's been installed since before I started working here a year ago06:15
AlexLibmanwartrend: You suggested that I create another forum account to bypass the ban, like by using a proxy.  I have an ethical policy against that.  I always use my real name online.06:15
phlak_userRodrigoG: is there an option to upgrade your install to 11.04? cos 10.04 is at EOL06:16
RodrigoGNot with the cd I have, and not if it means data loss06:16
bambanxrawtherapee its nice06:16
wartrendAlexLibman nothing wrong with a fresh start bro.06:17
RodrigoGphlak_user: not with the cd I have and not if it means data loss06:17
wartrendI had to reset my IP a few times to do bans on IRC Servers.06:17
AlexLibmanThe reason why I ran `usermod -G wheel` in the first place is when rsync'ing files to a BSD machine the group gets changed.  I guess I should simply run rsync with --no-g instead.06:18
phlak_userRodrigoG: guess not06:18
oratedWhile creating LiveISO or LiveUSB, how is swap size decided? Or is it required?06:18
AlexLibmanI don't want a fresh start, and I haven't done anything terribly wrong.  It's the left-wing political bias on that forum that's the problem.06:19
RodrigoGphlak_user: thanks anyway, I'll see about killing myself now :P xD good luck to all!06:19
oratedI don't have to worry about it as the application/command will write the image but does swap comes anywhere in the process?06:19
wartrendI know how you feel ALexLibman. I hate that06:19
RodrigoGGoodbye everyone!06:20
mekwallhey! how do I best troubleshoot a insanely slow ssh connect? I mean, once I am connected it is fast, its just the negotiation that is slow.06:20
AlexLibman(And it was so long ago I hardly remember the details.  You can still find the posts via http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=965147 )06:20
paulus68mekwall is that slow to every connection that you make?06:21
glebihanorated, on a live usb, the system will use any swap space available on the file system, if there is none, it won't use any. No swap space is usually created on the live usb itself06:21
fainamekwall: ssh -v, though when I have that problem its usually something is making a dns request and its failing over to another dns server06:21
mekwallpaulus68, nope, only to this one server... weird thing is, it goes fast to connect to from my windows machine06:21
phlak_usermekwall:  if you start the connection with a -v, the verbose messages might throw up some clues- maybe its waiting for something to happen06:21
nixjrcan i plug/unplug sata hdds while my system is running, if im not r/w to them?06:22
mekwallwow :) thanks for the quick response paulus68, faina, phlak_user ... will check it out :)06:22
fainamekwall: it helps to ask questions that have frustrated other people too ;)06:23
oratedglebihan: System will use any space available on the fc created on usb?06:23
fainanixjr: I think the answer is sometimes... depends on the hardware06:23
glebihanorated, on the whole file system actually. If you have a swap partition on your hard drive it will be used06:23
mekwallphlak_user, paulus68, faina: http://pastie.org/263618006:23
mekwallthat's where it is slow06:24
mekwallwhen it goes to public key it just flies06:24
oratedglebihan: What in cases where linux is installed on usb?06:24
nixjrfaina, guess ill play ti safe and it it the long way then, this is all my data im talking about lol06:24
phlak_usermekwall: turn off gssapi in ssh_config or sshd_config if youre not using it06:24
fainamekwall: that looks like its timing out looking for the GSS components06:24
glebihanorated, as I said, if there is no swap partition available, it won't use any swap06:24
JokesOnYou77hi all.  Can anyone help me write a script for a remote machine so that it will automatically execute a command when I ssh in?06:25
mekwallphlak_user, faina: indeed :) thanks! going to disable it06:25
oratedglebihan: Yes, that was for LiveUSB/LiveCD case but if linux is installed on usb formatting it to extx, then also the same applies?06:26
=== GNUdog_ is now known as GNUdog
glebihanorated, yes. It applies in all cases (even if you install on a hard drive actually). Swap space is not required, so if there is none, none is used06:27
nixjrim planning on formatting and reinstalling ubuntu, I have a dual monitor setup configured just the way I like it, which file(s) should I backup to keep this configuration?06:27
glebihanorated, the only difference between liveUSB and actual installation is that the live USB will use any swap space available, whereas an install will only use the swap space it was told to use at installation time06:27
oratedglebihan: Ok, thanks. But usually while installing linux on HDD (probably also for SSD), it asks to create swap otherwise installer will crash or the system will be unstable06:28
glebihanorated, no it shouldn't crash. Creating swap space is highly recommended but not necessary06:29
oratedglebihan: Alright, thanks06:29
glebihanorated, you're welcome06:29

kokabiel|ngopiHello everybody :D06:32
ActionParsnipHi kokabiel|ngopi06:32
kokabiel|ngopiwhat the topic today?06:33
DoverOsAfter uninstalling pulseaudio in unity the sound menu went away. How do you get it back?06:33
ActionParsnipkokabiel|ngopi: same as every day - ubuntu support06:33
nixjrim planning on formatting and reinstalling ubuntu, I have a dual monitor setup configured just the way I like it, which file(s) should I backup to keep this configuration?06:33
ActionParsnipnixjr: which video chip do you use and how did you configure it?06:34
nixjrActionParsnip, i configured it via a text file but i dont recall where or what the file was called, its nvidia06:36
ActionParsnipnixjr: does /etc/X11/xorg.conf   ring a bell ;-)06:37
Shirakawasunanixjr: back up everything in /etc06:37
Shirakawasunanixjr: my /etc is only 16 megabytes06:37
Shirakawasunanixjr: actually you should really be backing up everything in /etc and /home on a regular basis, to save yourself frustrations later06:38
kokabiel|ngopiActionParsnip: any idea how to configur ATI Radeon on kernel3?06:38
nixjri backup home, but thats all, dont really understand the rest of the directory structure06:38
nixjrActionParsnip, thanks, that was what i was looking for06:39
ActionParsnipkokabiel|ngopi: kernel 3 isn't supported here06:39
Shirakawasunanixjr: /home contains per-user settings, /etc contains systemwide settings (in general).06:39
ActionParsnipkokabiel|ngopi: if you are using oneiric, you are supported until release day in #ubuntu+106:40
Shirakawasunanixjr: so if you set up a samba share (file sharing with windows/other types of computers), the settings would go in /etc/samba06:40
kokabiel|ngopiActionParsnip: my os have built in kernel306:40
ActionParsnipkokabiel|ngopi: then its not ubuntu06:41
Shirakawasunanixjr: you can't go wrong backing up /etc, it's very tiny. Here's my backup list: /home, /etc, /usr/local/bin, /usr/local/sbin (the latter two are for scripts, you can skip them if you didn't write any)06:41
nixjrShirakawasuna, ah ok, well my /etc is only 13mb so thats not a problem to backup06:41
kokabiel|ngopiActionParsnip: here only talk ubuntu?06:42
soreaunixjr: xorg.conf is probably the main file you want to backup X driver config settings06:42
hexacodeanyone know where i save ttf files?  im installing fonts except i foget which foldr to put them in06:42
ActionParsnipkokabiel|ngopi: yes06:42

soreauDoverOs: Look at the packages that were removed when you uninstalled pulseaudio06:43
nixjrShirakawasuna, is there a simple way to output the contents of the "applications" menu in gnome? theres a bunch of applications ive added over time that wernt in there to begin with06:43
kokabiel|ngopiActionParsnip: how about another distro?06:43
Shirakawasunanixjr: /var/log might also be useful if you ever want old logs. I don't know if you do.06:43

DoverOssoreau: I reinstalled them, so it must have been something outside of the normal package setup..06:44
* soreau poses06:44
SigmaWPSay hello everyone :D06:44
Shirakawasunanixjr: that should be in your user's home directory. I don't remember exactly where they're kept by gnome, but probably somewhere in .config or .local. I would check ~/.local/share/applications06:44
ActionParsnipnixjr: its great backing up xorg.conf. install driver, restore file and restart x. Nice06:44
soreauDoverOs: Not sure but if you're using 11.10, you should ask in #ubuntu+106:44
soreauActionParsnip: The nice thing is when you need no xorg.conf because you use an open driver that justwroks06:45
siksiwhat could cause debus to function incorrectly? if i select, say, places -> home folder it says "Opening <username>" for a little while and then just disappears - nautilus never appears. ditto for rest of places06:45

W43372I upgraded from XP to 7 and now I can't share files between my Desktop and my netbook running Natty.06:46

soreau! smaba | W4337206:46

ubottuW43372: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.06:47

susundbergsoreau: huh -- i have ati proprietary without any xorg.conf06:47
soreaususundberg: Really? Can you pastebin your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file?06:47
nixjri did "sudo cp /etc/ /some/other/place" but it says cp: omitting directory `/etc/'06:47
ActionParsnipkokabiel|ngopi: which distro are you on and I may be able to point you to the relevant channel06:47
soreaunixjr: cp -r06:47
nixjrsoreau, ah thank you :)06:48
susundbergsoreau: sure: http://pastebin.com/5qQAPkyq06:48
W43372soreau I already have Samba on this netbook. The only thing that changed is the computer with Windows on nit06:48
Shirakawasunanixjr: don't use cp for backups, there's better options06:49
Shirakawasunanixjr: rsync is the best, in my opinion.06:49
soreaususundberg: must be ubuntu patches because X will not load a proprietary driver without being specifically told (via xorg.conf)06:50
nixjrShirakawasuna, im just doing this once manually before I format, but ill keep that in mind for later06:50
ActionParsnipShirakawasuna: cp is fine for a one off archive06:50
soreaususundberg: I notice ubuntu's X checks for fglrx even if it's not installed06:50
Shirakawasunanixjr: This is the type of command I use: rsync -avz --progress --delete --numeric-ids /etc /backup/ . Notice that /etc has no trailing slash and /backup/ does. This is important.06:50
susundbergsoreau: might be very well so .. don't know06:50

arkiverThe problem i face is my laptop gets really heated up while using for a long time07:09
paulus68I have a backup script which is functioning correctly however after a complete backup my drive is full and I don't have any free space left,07:09
ShirakawasunaGeoffrey2: he ehci_hcd and usb-storage messages are a good sign. They're usb modules (drivers) for usb and storage, respectively07:10
paulus68is there a way to create a script that checks the diskspace and if I don't have enough free space that the largest file is moved to another drive07:10
ShirakawasunaGeoffrey2: I don't really know how to deal with /dev/sg nodes, but it appears you may be able to figure out what they mean and map them to other nodes for easier use07:10

arkiveris there any tweak i can use?07:11
Shirakawasunapaulus68: du -sh (or just du -s) will give you the size of files. If you're talking about doing this in a single directory, you could probably bash script it - have it check every minute or something (or on a cron job). If it's systemwide, you're going to need a specialized tool of some kind to check for the 'largest file' in the system.07:12

SwedeMikenergal_: update only changes if you reboot.07:19
soreauhoutyl: Try gnome-language-selector07:19
GirlyGirlHi I would like to know how to force an unvavailable resolution for a tv connected via VGA on a laptop07:19
SwedeMikenergal_: and no, it shouldn't be service affecting, it'll change immediately when you save the new resolv.conf file07:20
nergal_SwedeMike: what? A reboot is required for changing dns-servers?07:20
SwedeMikenergal_: you used the word "uptime".07:20
Shirakawasunahoutyl: this might help https://help.ubuntu.com/11.04/ubuntu-help/session-language.html07:20
SwedeMikenergal_: uptime is something specific here, it's not "service is available"07:20
nergal_service uptime yes07:20
Shirakawasunabut it's a little outdated07:20
SwedeMikenergal_: don't use "uptime", it's confusing.07:20
Shirakawasunahoutyl: basically search the app lens for 'session' or 'language'07:20
SwedeMikenergal_: $ uptime07:20
SwedeMike 09:20:54 up 205 days, 21:51,  7 users,  load average: 0.06, 0.10, 0.0907:20
SwedeMikenergal_: that is "uptime".07:21
arkiverShirakawasuna, i am not sure of anyone else using the same laptop . But before ubuntu i used mint10 and i had the same issues.07:21
arkivera solution is to use a cooling pd07:21
paulus68Shirakawasuna: the thing is that I need to check this after the backup script has run if I don't have any or no space left I want to create a script that is going to move the file towards the new location07:21
nergal_well, I guess you understood what I meant :)07:22
Shirakawasunaarkiver: by someone else, I mean google for the exact model and find someone else who wrote a guide. Hopefully there's one out there and they talk about power management or acpi07:22
SwedeMikenergal_: yes, eventually.07:22
arkiveralso if anyone here is using ubuntu on a laptop, can u tell me what temperatures do your laptops work on?07:22
arkiverShirakawasuna, okay i think i can do that07:22
Shirakawasunaarkiver: sure thing. It's annoying to search, but it's the most useful thing imo :/. It's how I got acpi working on my thinkpad before the support was automatic in the kernel.07:23
fainaarkiver: it really depends on the laptop design & how well the power management is enabled.07:23
Shirakawasunaarkiver: also my thinkpad runs really cool.07:24
Shirakawasunaarkiver: also see if there's any processes running that are making your processor run all the time, which will heat up your system (use top)07:25
Shirakawasunapaulus68: You don't want to run into a situation where you're actually out of space on either drive. It will corrupt parts of the filesystem. You want something that will check the space available and do the safe thing.07:26
arkiverI had that. Top shows nothing more than 10% of CPU usage07:26
phlak_usersoreau: Go to tools-Web developer-view page source (ctl+u is a shortcut)07:26
fainaarkiver: also look into powertop07:26
arkiverI'm wondering whether 50-60degrees is normal temp for laptops?07:26
fainaits not uncommon07:27
fainais that surface temperature or cpu temperature?07:27
fainaalso is that a desktop replacement style laptop?07:27
soreauphlak_user: Yes, it is there indeed. Thanks07:28
phlak_usersoreau: yw07:28
arkiverCPU temperature07:28
arkiverfaina, Is it safe to use Powertop? it needs root privileges!07:29
Geoffrey2Shirakawasuna, hmm, apparently /dev/sg2 is mapped to /dev/scd1, but when I try to mount scd1, I get an error that says there is no medium on /dev/sr107:30
linxehsome laptops hit 90c07:30
phlak_userGeoffrey2: thats the cdrom07:31
fainaarkiver: I've run it and haven't observed anything going wrong, though I haven't done a security analysis07:31
drussellarkiver: it's pretty safe afaik07:35
paulus68Shirakawasuna: I know however it's on an external hard drive and (yes I have to replace it with a bigger one) but in the mean time I need to keep an eye on it07:36
gvandeweyerwhere/how do I tell dpkg that I have python2.6 instead of python2.7 as default on my system? I need to install some older deb and dpkg complains about the python version.07:37

GirlyGirlgvandeweyer: Can't find a newer deb07:38
GirlyGirlgvandeweyer: What are you installing exactly07:38
gvandeweyerGirlyGirl: I need the older version (dependencies)07:38

GirlyGirlgvandeweyer: What is it you are installing07:39
houtylbut firefox is still german07:39
houtyldo i need another package?07:39
phlak_usergvandeweyer: you could do a "force" install or "no-deps"07:39
GirlyGirlphlak_user: That would probably break things07:39
szalhoutyl: prolly firefox-locale-en07:40
gvandeweyerGirlyGirl: it's a lucid deb on a natty system of python-rpy. I need the older version of R (bioconductor version, needs to be in sync with some LTS lucid systems,), so the newer python-rpy tries to update r-base, which is not allowed07:40

marcreicheltI need to reset my Empathy program, but I don't know how07:41
marcreicheltis there anything I need to do beside removing ~/.mission-control and ~/.config/Empathy?07:41
gvandeweyerphlak_user: no-deps is not recognised or in dpkg man07:41
GirlyGirlgvandeweyer: Can't you upgrade the lucid systems as downgrading python on Natty can have bad consequences and break Ubuntu components07:41
Geoffrey2phlak_user, duh, I see it, sg3 is the card reader, sg2 is the cdrom....07:41
gvandeweyerGirlyGirl: there is no LTS yet after lucid07:41
marcreicheltbecause Empathy keeps asking me for Accounts and seems to remove/add accounts on its own, and I don't know how to reset it to the beginning07:42
GirlyGirlgvandeweyer: Or you can downgrade the natty system maybe07:42
gvandeweyerGirlyGirl: and the natty is my desktop pc, which was not hardware supported by the LTS lucid07:42
gvandeweyerI tried all :-)07:42
houtylszal: sry i don't understand07:42
szalhoutyl: what's there to understand?07:43
houtylwhere do i have to click?07:45
gvandeweyerphlak_user: the force-depends options seems to have done the trick. thanks for the tip07:46

gvandeweyerGirlyGirl: btw: natty still does not support the dell optiplex 990. I can not turn the system off/reboot. it hangs on the splash screen.07:47

sammyso here's one i almost surely know the answer to already: I'm using PA to pipe sound from a desktop across the room (with the large screen) to the lappy on my lap (with my headphones plugged in). when I watch video, I can sync up the audio, but pulseaudio wants to play every bit of audio for me, even when it becomes lagged. is there any better solution with pulseaudio? maybe including jack in the mix? id be okay with PA 'dropping frames' as it were, to s08:44

sammytouchpad: interesting. I wanted to watch this episode now, but I might look into it.08:50
sammyFudge: can you get a vendor and product ID from lspci -v ? you should be able to google for general device support in linux with that information. is it not working out of the box for you, then?08:50

Gentoo64i use the vdpau for mplayer, i think ati needs GL output12:41
xgt001i am unlucky then i guess coz nvidia supported vdpau from long back...12:41
xgt001i am doubtful about ati support12:41

ubottudan-mytt: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/14:49
DasEiAdvoWork: sry, I slapt my ethercable while friggling here14:49
lunitikdan-mytt: It is a difficult problem because whatever considered will need the keyboard to look around...14:49
lunitikdan-mytt: that it doesn't even work with GRUB means it isn't even really a Linux question... GRUB does not function with Linux, it loads Linux14:51
StaRetjiCan someone help me out, I need to make bash script loop. I mean, it runs command1, command2, command3 and after that I would like to run command1 again and all that until I interrupt the script. Thx folks !14:51
lunitikStaRetji: try throwing exec /path/to/script at the end of the script?14:52
AdvoWorklunitik, oki, i will try 4gb/2swap, i can always change on the fly, well with a half/config change14:52
StaRetjilunitik: Brilliant !!! so simple solution and that is awesome! :) Thx man14:53

lunitikdan-mytt: do you have another keyboard you can plug in to look around?14:55

PoopheadJust a newbie, willing to take my lumps...I logged on here yesterday with problems related to a display malfunction...Discovered (belatedly) by reading that I had picked the wrong time( and didn't do my homework) to install a partial upgrade...Did another thru terminal mode this morning and all is well (so far)...15:08

DasEipc 12 ^15:11
DasEipc12 ^, heh15:12
pc12dont get it sorry15:12
lunitikpc12: well, nouveau apparently doesn't like it... it could be better to use nv.... nvidia is the official driver from them15:12
DasEipc12: no, boot regulary to the end, press Ctrl+alt+F115:12
pc12i press that?15:12
pc12but i dunno how to go back15:13
AdvoWorklunitik, fail on my behalf, swap was refering to HD, not memory :S  what would u recommend for HD swap? if im allocating 15GB for the HD size15:13
lunitikDasEi: if he has access to the terminal (which I assume since he pasted a lsmod) its fine15:13
pc12and what will i do to ctrl+alt+f115:13

jola_Seven_Six_Two: run your ubuntu installation from usb then open terminal and enter sudo grub-install /dev/sda16:38
jola_GRMrGecko: yes I saw it but I cant find error there I think, than your problem is concern with Xorg16:38
jola_GRMrGecko: even if this is wifi error system should boot normally16:39
GRMrGeckojola_: what makes you think wpa_supplicant has to do with xorg?16:39
w30rokra, call your script as aa\\nn instead of aa\nn16:40
GRMrGeckojola_: I believe the blacking out of the screen is the wifi issue poping up on the external display port.16:40

But it's not working here.17:32

Steve132-2I already have octave3.2 installed.  octave3.2 depends on the reference blas contained in the libblas3gf file.  As an alternate, it can use the atlas blas found in libatlas3gf19:31

yaroslav0rudenokproblem with octave -> using libblas rather then libatlas19:32
