noisewaterphdLogan_, rickyrich: I remember my trackpad on my macbook working out of the box, but it worked a lot differently than it did in mac OS, I believe I downloaded something, and that something made my trackpad behave like it did on Mac00:02
OomElvisQ: guys... i have ubuntu 11.04 and have probs connecting to a hidden wireless network. i go "connect to hidden network", it tries to connect (and i can see it in the network manager - 2 bars signal) .... but it just shows the busy icon.. and it eventually cnat connect. but in windows it works - any ideas?00:02
rickyrichnoisewaterphd: well the experience with the touchpad in mac os in unbelievable and here is not the same00:03
guerreroi installed ubuntu and since that mi window 7 always does the disk c check.but yesterday it had an error and it said it was fixing it and now i boot windows 7 and after window 7 logo i just see the cursor.no login or welcome screen.and when i boot ubuntu it always say fixing ubnutu cause it wasnt closed correctly something like that00:03
alhubaishiguerrero, have u installed ubuntu inside windows operating system or u have made a new partition separated from windows00:04
ninwaguerrero, It sounds like your HDD is failing.00:04
excelsiorso I'm selling a Ipad2 16 GB 3G (ATT) unopened for $600, am I being ripped off?00:04

ninwaguerrero, Are you able to check the SMART status of the drive?00:06
alhubaishiguerrero, so now ur booted in ubuntu to come here bro?00:06
guerreroyes i have ubuntu and its the only thing that boots up so here am i00:07
guerrerohow can i check the smart status of the drie?00:07
guerrerothe last thing i did was use the start up manager repair something like that00:07
ninwaguerrero, run the Disk Utility.00:08
rickyrichLogan_: ok i have change with f4 the key for screenshot00:08

Logan_rickyrich: Cool.00:08
ninwaguerrero, hit the super key and type disk, it should show up in the list.00:08
The_CreatorHow do I Alt-Tab through windows on only the active workspace on 11.10?00:08
noisewaterphdguerrero: so you are at least abel to attempt to boot windows?00:08
alhubaishiits good to see Linux survived in ur windows since windows faulted00:09
ninwanoisewaterphd, ye said yes, he gets a cursor but nothing else, after checkdisk was prompted to run00:09
noisewaterphdnot good then00:09
guerreroyes it boots when the window seven does the liil boot thingy that it forms the window 7 flag there it goes black and i just see white curser00:09
simon_ghttp://www.wklej.org/id/603370/ hm... how can i check that something is using freshly created /dev/sda1 and sdb1 :?00:09

alhubaishiguerrero, ur windows has virus or something ? possibly glitches , malware , before this incident happened , was ur computer pretty slow? or did this incident happen since u installed ubuntu.. doesnt make sense if it is00:11
guerrerosince i installed ubuntu.00:12
guerreroits like ubuntu caused an error on my w7... im experienced on fixing computers and mi window 7 was runing great i run it with 8gb ram00:12
ninwaguerrero, Were you able to run the Disk Utility and check the SMART status of the drive?00:12
guerreroi am on disk utility where do i check the smart status?00:13
CheapshotSomeone point me to the right direction. I want search and read txt from website via terminal using keywords. Example i know a certain word from a website and want to print some of the txt under it to the terminal.00:13
ninwaOn the left side it will show a list of controllers and attached devices, look for your hard drive (something like 1.0 TB Hard Disk or similar) and click on it.00:13
noisewaterphdguerrero: if the drive is in fact not going bad, then you need Windows help. Not that you wont get help here, just that this is a linux channel, and at least I personally don't know the first thing about windows00:13
ninwaThen, on the right, you will see a label "SMART Status: ..." and it will have an indicator.00:13
guerrerocheck and confirmed disk is healthy my 320gb hdd00:14
ninwaguerrero, In that case this channel can't help much more, as noisewaterphd said.00:14
rickyrichLogan_: do you know how to setuo the effect of the windows while i move them?00:14
hydesteryears ago i used cups-pdf.  since natty i have been using the "Print to file", which i  believe comes from Gnome.  i like the cups-pdf automatic file naming, although it seems that cups-pdf files are images and not text.  the "print to file" is PDF text, which is nice.  but it is a pain always having to type in the filename.  any way to have it guess based off of its input, like cups-pdf does?00:14
noisewaterphdguerrero: have you tried booting from your windows install disc and attemting whatever repair mode it may have?00:14
th0r1Cheapshot: if you just want to copy something to the command line, highlight it in the browser, click on the terminal, then press the middle button00:15
P-Chanhelp! my ubuntu is crazy! Metacity not work!!!00:15
guerreroyes i try to repair but it says that my windows is perfect...00:15
P-Channohup metacity --replace &   not work00:15
P-Chanmetacity --replace &   too00:15
guerreroi cant eaven boot safe mode.thaty is windows always booting way...00:16
alhubaishiguerrero, it cant be from linux the issue , u installed it in windows , it acts like a software , similar to ur firefox in ur add / remove programs , the extra drive for the ubuntu which is given is in a branch directory , doesnt effect windows00:16
ninwaguerrero, I would recommend attempting to boot safe mode and to turn off all windows services and startup applications. I would also recommend running a anti-malware software (perhaps MBAM) and perhaps you might even want to run ComboFix. If you cannot boot safe-mode, then reload the machine.00:16
P-Chanmy ubuntu is lucid lynx00:16
ninwaI would also check to see if your memory was bad. Although it's odd you aren't having problems in Ubuntu, it is possible that it's coincidence. You can run memtest from the Ubuntu CD.00:17
excelsior!passiveagressive | Logan00:17
Cheapshotth0r1: No im looking to do it all from terminal. So I could fetch the specific part of the site with just a line of command or maybe a script.00:17
guerreroi can reload the machin 20 times and it wil just boot safe mode or normal do the logo thingy and then go black screen and just show normal mouse curser00:17

rickyrichLogan_: i found it it was compiz config manager thanks anyway00:18
P-ChanI solved my problem00:18
Logan_rickyrich: Okay, sounds good.00:18
ninwaguerrero, then perhaps there is something wrong with your installation media, either way, this is not an Ubuntu issue anymore.00:18
guerreroits that when i installed ubnutu it said i had to run startp manager and it said that it fixed my startup and wat it did was fu** it up :((00:19
guerrerothanks for the help tho.ill just keep googling00:20
alhubaishiguerrero, its hard to resolve issues the best doctor is a doctor of himself , u know ur computer , if it was infected with a virus or not , or malware , or something , try to repair windows 7 with windows 7 cd , if u think its virus download windows utility tools that can check and detect if ur system is compromised or any other factor with a solution of a fix.00:20
guerreroany other channal that can help me?00:20
Dori922hey! if i send some .mp3 files from windows pc to ubuntu do they keep they're .mp3 extension?00:21
SIFTUDori922: yes00:21
Dori922SIFTU: ty :)00:21
alhubaishiubuntu doesnt ask u to do stuff in windows like change ur reg or start up manager from ur msconfig , and dont play with msconfig , follow blackviper guide if u want to tweak ur windows www.blackviper.com00:21
alhubaishiGOD give us power please00:22
guerrerothanks :D00:23
a_cuttlefishhi all; not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but does anyone have a method for extracting jpegs from an online flv presentation?00:27
alhubaishidownload the flv00:28
alhubaishithen edit with movie maker like app00:28
a_cuttlefishhow do i pass data to it? it's a map viewer.00:28
a_cuttlefishit's not a movie.00:28
alhubaishiits .avi .flv . mpg they are all similar a_cuttlefish00:29
meomichey, does anyone know if ubuntu is planning to make auto-versioning whole /etc dir? - only config files are there - would be nice00:30
a_cuttlefishit's not a video stream00:30
a_cuttlefishthat's my problem00:30
alhubaishiuse firefox with addon downthemall and videodownload helper , do u get the logo over the logo over that flash video ? if yes u can download and convert it to .avi then extract with ur method if u cant do it with .flv00:31
a_cuttlefishalhubaishi: it's not a video.00:31
alhubaishigive me link00:32
SIFTUa_cuttlefish: you mean extracting pcis from a flash application.. never done that. what about just screenshots?00:32
alhubaishiim in 11.10 and im beta testing with laziness00:32
a_cuttlefishSIFTU: that's what i've been doing, but as you can imagine, it takes a really, really long time.00:32
noisewaterphda_cuttlefish: what do you need the images for? would a screenshot do the trick?00:32
noisewaterphda_cuttlefish: oh nevermind, beat me to it00:33
a_cuttlefishnoisewaterphd: they kinda would, but i need the images perspective-corrected00:33
a_cuttlefishi'm building a virtual copy of a city.00:33
SIFTUa_cuttlefish: you could script it pretty easy.. like when you press a key it takes the shot and names it00:33
noisewaterphda_cuttlefish: anyway, without the source .fla I don't know of any other way to go about it00:33
i12hey my people, Im having an issue with windows shares (samba) and ubuntu 11.1000:34
noisewaterphda_cuttlefish: actually, can you use a converter of some kind and convert it to a sequence of jpegs, then go through and find the ones you need?00:34
a_cuttlefishnoisewaterphd: i need to pass location data to the flv in order for it to ask the host server for the correct images. should i be looking into packet forming?00:34
i12I cannot seem to get the samba config started, its just not kicking in00:34
a_cuttlefishnoisewaterphd: that's what i was thinking; something akin to the way curl can ask for a sequential range of urls00:35
genii-aroundi12: Does: testparm      give any clues?00:35
i12testpram is the one that should check my configs right?00:35
genii-aroundi12: Yes. testparm00:35
genii-aroundNot pram ;)00:36
noisewaterphda_cuttlefish: oh, so you dont even have the file locally, ya, I'm afraid you're stuck with screenshots, unless there is enough of them that it really would save you time to automate it in scripting lang of your choice00:36
i12thats why it wasnt testpraming00:36
i12so yeah unable to open config file, no such file or directory00:37
SIFTUa_cuttlefish: what about screen recording, then splitting it up into images (thousands of them :)00:37
a_cuttlefishnoisewaterphd: well, i can get the file locally, but that doesn't help anything00:37
a_cuttlefishSIFTU: oh, then just pass it through ffmpeg and keep every nth frame or something like that?00:37
a_cuttlefishthat's a really good idea00:37
noisewaterphda_cuttlefish: right, cause it needs data00:37
SIFTUa_cuttlefish: yes00:38
noisewaterphda_cuttlefish: script it or continue on with your evening of screenshots00:38
i12so if I touch smb.conf00:38
SIFTUa_cuttlefish: there is a youtube on it00:38
alhubaishia_cuttlefish, have u tried swish00:38
i12should I reinstall samba?00:38
a_cuttlefishnoisewaterphd: i'm wondering how hard it would be to write my own javascript for this00:38
a_cuttlefishswish? no, i haven't. give me a sec to look it up.00:38
=== Therstrium_ is now known as Therstrium
i12genii-around: looks like smb.conf was missing00:39
genii-aroundi12: Ah, I scrolled up and see your earlier stuff. If the shares are on a win box and accessing from Ubuntu, then mostly you just need smbfs, and not full samba unless you want shares on the Ubuntu box the Windows ones can also access.00:39
SetiAmonwhat are files that end in .run00:39
i12genii-around: yep choice number 1 for the most part, there is also a printer that would be sweet if I could share00:39
SIFTUSetiAmon: usually scripts.. type "file <filename>" and it will tell you00:40
SetiAmoni mean they are old style binary or something right00:40
i12genii-around: I can browse to the network folder, but I cannot get access once Im there, I know the user name and pass, so I think I just need to find the right place to put it00:40
genii-aroundi12: Well, testparm results of no smb.conf is fine without samba installed. To just use the Windows shares, make sure package smbfs is on. Then you can try by putting in Nautilus smb://ip-or-network-name-of-win-box/share-name00:41
SIFTUSetiAmon: what does file say.. it could be anything .run doesnt actually mean anything, could be a bin or a script00:41
baktrakCan anyone help me?. i go to synpatic and go to linux headers because i wanna install a new kernel.. and i download the kernel<whatversion i want>.gearnic or w.e and wont install new kernel?00:41
a_cuttlefish...can swish open compiled flv's?00:41
alhubaishilast i used it was at 199900:42
i12genii-around: would samba provide a way to visually manage the connections though?00:42
alhubaishidno :,<00:42
alhubaishiif theyr updated to this generaion  im sure it can00:43
genii-aroundi12: Not really. There are separate gui frontends to samba though. At any rate, currently, I would suggest checking how the shares are set up on Windows side. You may need to login with different username than the Ubuntu box is trying by default00:43

jhaddadi only installed the server components of ubuntu.  i'd like to install all the nice gui stuff now too.  what's the easiest way to do that?00:54
MrSassyPantshey I'm thinking about switching to ubuntu lts for my home server and I wonder what the real life difference between using the 32bit or 64bit version would be00:54
noisewaterphda_cuttlefish: I'm currently paid to write java, but I use multiple languages00:54
SIFTUMrSassyPants: mainly memory size, although 32 bit has a PAE kenerl anyway. so if you have 4Gb or more it is recommended 64 bit00:55
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: use 64bit00:55
MrSassyPantsSIFTU, I don't see memory as a problem00:55
MrSassyPantsnoisewaterphd, why?00:55
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: the better question is really why not00:56
nasuta-worki dont find the internet explorer, where is it?!00:56
SIFTUMrSassyPants: how much ram do you have?00:56
nasuta-workplease help00:56
MrSassyPantsnoisewaterphd, some stuff might not be available for 64bit, or 64bit may give other compatibility problem. I mean, are there even advantages?00:56
noisewaterphdnasuta-work: firefox is your default browser00:56
a_cuttlefishMrSassyPants: being able to address more than 3gb of ram00:57
MrSassyPantsnoisewaterphd, my #1 pro-64bit argument on the server is "I won't be getting 64bit on my desktop any time soon"00:57
MrSassyPantsa_cuttlefish, irrelevant00:57
a_cuttlefishMrSassyPants: you're not planning on ever having 4gb of ram?00:57
a_cuttlefishor even 3.5?00:57
SIFTUMrSassyPants: then if you have a small amount of RAM go 32 bit00:57
MrSassyPantsa_cuttlefish, currently no, and even if I did - all programs that actually make use of more than 4gigs of ram can do that in 32bit too00:58
JonShwhich linux distro is best for kernel ahcking00:58
Grecoodo someone have the Theft Deferrent Agent for linux?00:58
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: plenty of advantages, you wont find anything you can't use. you can install 32 bit programs on 64 bit just fine anyway00:58
a_cuttlefishi'm missing something here...00:58
MrSassyPantsnoisewaterphd, ominous advantages that no one cares to explain :p00:58
MrSassyPantsa_cuttlefish, 32bit can handle 4+ gigs just fine00:59
SIFTUMrSassyPants: using PAE kernel, which has a slight overhead00:59
prometheanfireI've noticed a problem with ubuntu happens by default for ubuntu installs for me for some reason, the network gets REALLY slow00:59
prometheanfiremy connection is fine in any other OS00:59

MrSassyPantsSIFTU, onoes, and 64bit addressing has overhead to00:59
datakidin a trouble shooting effort I did an apt-get remove that failed. Now that I have apt working again, I don't want the package removed. How can I tell apt to not remove that package?00:59
SIFTUMrSassyPants: not a performance overhead01:00
MrSassyPantsSIFTU, actually, in more ways than one01:00
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: besides the obvious answers, one good reason is simply to be thinking forward01:00
prometheanfire64bit performes better then PAE does01:00
SIFTUprometheanfire: yes thats true01:00
prometheanfireisn't ubuntu multilib anyway?01:00
MrSassyPantsprometheanfire, maybe so, except for when it doesnt01:00

MrSassyPantsprometheanfire, I've seen a lot of packages and applications marked unavailable for 64bit01:01

prometheanfireMrSassyPants: use gentoo :D01:01
a_cuttlefishhi /g/01:01
MrSassyPantsprometheanfire, actually I'm gettint rid of gentoo01:01
nasuta-workcrux linux is better01:01
genii-arounddatakid: Probably like: sudo apt-get install --reinstall packagename01:01
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: then you install the 32 bit compat libraries and install them anyway with --force-architecture01:01
nasuta-workor arch linux01:01
datakidgenii-around, tx01:01
SIFTUMrSassyPants: lots?? or just precompiled 3rd party blobs?01:01
prometheanfireanyway, I can't for the life of me figure out why I can't get ubuntu to go over 10kbps01:01
MrSassyPantsSIFTU, the 3rd party blobs are generally vital01:02
pooltablewhat do  i need to do to update flash to version 11???01:02
prometheanfireMrSassyPants: heh, I'm about to become a gentoo dev :D01:02
MrSassyPantsSIFTU, whatcha do without flash and nvidia-drivers?01:02
SIFTUMrSassyPants: there are 64 versions of both of those01:02
MrSassyPantsprometheanfire, my take on gentoo is that it is now run by microsoft, trying to give linux a bad rep01:02
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: the way I do it is find out if you REALLY have any reason that you must have 32 bit, if you don't, then 64 bit.01:02
prometheanfireMrSassyPants: well, given that the council doesn't have a say in technical maters....01:03
MrSassyPantsnoisewaterphd, that's really the "why the hell not" argument01:03
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: I run a 64bit linux desktop and I have both 64bit flash and the nvidia drivers01:03
MrSassyPantsnoisewaterphd, not the point01:03
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: and that is the only argument01:03
prometheanfireanyway, I just wish ubuntu could actually do networking sanely01:03
ShattersHey, I want to install ubuntu 10 lucid onto USB but with file system greater than 4 gig, but Lili Linux installer says it requires FAT32 and so limit live file system. is it possible to make a live USB greater than 4gig?01:03
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: it sounds like you want 32 bit, so go for it01:04
MrSassyPantsnoisewaterphd, it sounds like I want 64bit, but don't know why01:04
SIFTUMrSassyPants: you just seem to be ignoring the whole RAM things.. while you may not have >3Gb or RAM many do. PAE has a penalty and can only goto 64Gb of RAM anyway01:04
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: 64 bit is a better architecture01:05
MrSassyPantsnoisewaterphd, it's got twice the bits!01:05
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: like I said twice now, its not why, but why not01:05
Shatterscurrently on windows 7 btw, and so it can't install with linux etx's as far as I knoww01:05
MrSassyPantsnoisewaterphd, because of potential compatibility problems01:05
MrSassyPantsnoisewaterphd, but I guess I'm just a late adopter and those are worked out by now01:05
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: and I'm telling you that after years of being 64 bit, I still have not found a single one01:06
=== DrWho is now known as DoctorWho
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: but, you might actually need something that really will not work on 64 bit linux01:06
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: thats why I say, find out if you do01:07
boxybrownFYI I solved my problem01:07
a_cuttlefishShatters: keep in mind that i'm talking entirely out my ass and haven't actually tried this, but can't you just make two partitions on the same drive? use one for storage and the other for os?01:07
MrSassyPantsnothing comes to my mind. especially as it's the home server, meaning it doesn't need cutting edge01:07

Shatterslol that's what I did the last time I installed cuttlefish, but when I was in here last night it sounded way complicated to use the second partition (logical) to install new programs.01:08
Shattersand after all the updates required when installing ub. 10 luc. it leaves me with about 2 gig space for more programs.01:09
a_cuttlefish2gb isn't /that/ bad... right?01:09
a_cuttlefishif it comes down to it, could you move the programs off the main partition and put symlinks in their places?01:09
Shattersit's very bad when the updates are taking up 50% of the expected system space01:10
MrSassyPantsnoisewaterphd, don't you know, 64bit is recommended by ubuntu.com for servers. but 32bit is recommended for desktops.01:10
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: I am aware01:10
Shattershmm not sure about symlinks. gotta google it. I've only used Ubuntu for a few days now.01:10
a_cuttlefishShatters: ohhh. they're like shortcuts, but better.01:10
noisewaterphdMrSassyPants: besides physical address space, 64 bit ubuntu also consistently benchmarks faster than 3201:11
soreauShatters: apt-cache clean should give some room by deleting downloaded packages I believe01:11
soreauShatters: yes, symbolic links are like shortcuts in a way01:11
Shattersyeah I was using bleachbit for that soreau01:12
Shattershmm, last person I asked about installations said that they go to usr/bin or bins but how do I know after installing a package what files go where because frankly the bin folder just looks like a mess01:12
Shattersand I can't tell what files are associated with what apps, they seem mixed up.01:13
noisewaterphdShatters: /usr/bin is a common directory for program binaries, but it is not the only place they are put01:13
noisewaterphdShatters: and many times it is up to you where they go01:14
noisewaterphdShatters: either search, or just find out from wherever you got the software01:14
Shattershm. how to I select a target directory? I couldn't figure it out01:14
noisewaterphdShatters: use locate01:15
Shattersoh, like the package's website. but no way from package manager?01:15
noisewaterphdwhat software is it01:15
noisewaterphdI might already know01:15
zorklatI'm trying to install an HP LJ 1018, and when I try to get the proprietary component, the script complains it doesn't match its signature.  What do I do?01:15
noisewaterphdalso how did you install it01:15
Shattersany future software I want to install after that 2 gig runs out really. 2 gig won't go very far01:16
ShattersI've only been installing things through package manager01:16
noisewaterphdok, well if you install with apt or whatever, then the binary will be on your path no matter where it was put01:17
noisewaterphdso you can just type the name at the command line without caring where it is01:17
Shattersinteresting, even if the executable is on another partition?01:18
noisewaterphdor if it is a service of somekind, like apache or whatever that runs as a service then you would use either service programname start|stop, or /etc/init.d/programname start|stop01:18
noisewaterphdShatters: as long as that location is in your path01:19
noisewaterphdShatters: it could be on a network drive, external, whatever, as long as that drive is mounted, and the location is on your path01:20
=== peregrinator_six is now known as synaptic
Shatters'on your path' meaning the file path in the file's or symlink's properties, yes?01:20
noisewaterphdShatters: if the location is not on your path you would need to use the canonical name to launch it01:20
noisewaterphdShatters: literally your path01:21
noisewaterphdShatters: you can see what is on it by typing echo $PATH at command line01:21

zmbmartinwhen I go to upload a file through a flash based file uploader on the web (like uploadify) the browser to select a file is not themed. It is like ugly plain gtk. Any idea why?01:23
noisewaterphdzorklat: have you tried downloading it again01:23
noisewaterphdzorklat: maybe its incomplete or corrupt and not matching its signature01:24
zorklatmany times.  I get a warning about no permission when trying to get the key.01:24
noisewaterphduse sudo01:24
noisewaterphdzorklat: hp stuff has always 'just worked' for me in ubuntu for quite some time now01:25
zorklat??  I plug in the printer, the script requires my PW thru gksu, it runs, it downloads the plugin, but it can't down load the key.01:25
noisewaterphdzorklat: but HP themselves are actually great help with linux customers01:25
noisewaterphdzorklat: sorry to say that I have no clue, I've given you all the advice I could think of without actually being through it myself01:26
zorklatany suggestions on how I could pull the script output from xterm?  It won't let me copy to clipboard.01:27
ShattersOkay, cool. I copy/pasted all this stuff in notepad to refer to when I boot up ubuntu. Thanks all.01:28
noisewaterphdzorklat: what is it that 'runs' when you plug in the printer? via usb I assume you mean right?01:28
qinzorklat: highligh and middleclick to paste.01:28
noisewaterphdzorklat: or actually right clicking will let you copy I think?01:29
qinzorklat: Wait, xterm?01:29
zorklatqin, yes01:29

ubuntu_one . and the other ..    what are the function of these?01:30
zorklatnoisewaterphd, LXDE/Natty.01:31
noisewaterphdzorklat: you could just do: programname >> output.txt01:31
zorklatqin, I don't run the script, it starts when I attach the printer's usb cable01:31
zorklatI don't know the script's name.01:31

zmbmartinanyone know why when the file browser that pops up to select a file from a flash based file uploader does not follow my ubunt theme?01:32
soreauubuntu_: You can use ls . and ls .. in any directory to see this01:32
zorklatSIFTU, I would, but I don't choose the console.  Xterm fires up and runs the script, I don't know its name.01:32
noisewaterphdzmbmartin: flash is flash, doesnt use system theme01:32
SIFTUzorklat: how do you launch it?01:33
zorklatSIFTU, I plug in the printer's USB cable.01:33
zmbmartinnoisewaterphd: right but this is a gtk file browser the pops up to select a file. let me upload a screenshot.01:33
noisewaterphdzmbmartin: i understand, but thats just flash01:34
SIFTUzorklat: never heard of that before.. HP printers usually work with hplip01:34
noisewaterphdzmbmartin: i mean, yes its gtk, but that is just how flash is01:34
zmbmartinnoisewaterphd: in my archlinux install this is not the case.01:35
zorklatSIFTU, I installed that before I plugged in the printer.01:35
noisewaterphdzorklat: im with SIFTU, I've just got no idea what is happening on your machine to even come up with an idea01:35
SIFTUzorklat: plug it in and run "hp-setup" from a terminal01:35
noisewaterphdzmbmartin: let me rephrase, thats just how flash is on ubuntu01:35
zorklatSIFTU, command not found, unable to locate package.  Natty / LXDE, if it matters.01:36
SIFTUzorklat: shouldnt matter if you install hplip01:37
zmbmartinnoisewaterphd: OK, that seems weird to me considering how well Ubuntu integrates everything. Thanks01:37

balzacSomebody ought to go back to school02:12
balzacMeanwhile, my pinky finger is going numb, making it hard to type.02:12
CoreyPalace_chan: Right.  Firstly it's likely a pathing issue to a different kill (possibly the builtin), secondly specify 2 instead of SIGINT.02:13

almoxarifebalzac: seems to me like a good error msg, I got it02:14
balzacno clue as to why this is the case02:14

detlyokay, so I put the ubuntu installer on a usb stick using unetbootin and tried to install it, but two things went wrong: (a) the installer told me that dpkg returned an error and all of the libreoffice packages are broken, which is probably recoverable, and (b) when I reboot, I just see a screen that says "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"02:27

maynardwv1Any idea as to how I can check?02:29
scratchingmyheadHello all... Zorin is linux isn't it?    Why cant I find a source code to compile my own02:29
noisewaterphdmaynardwv1: find out what your nic is and use google02:29
SIFTUstigma_: I would suggest using the linux software raid mdadm02:30
maynardwv1Sorry, but I am not exactly a smart man. How do I find what my nic is?02:30
SIFTUstigma_: those mb raids are are usually only written for windows02:30
noisewaterphdmaynardwv1: actually, is wired an option you can select, but just not getting connected to your router, or is it just unavailabe. Should clarify that first02:30
scratchingmyheadWhen asking the oracle....  Zorin Source code.. I find 0         Isnt that a violation of linux not providing the source code???02:31
maynardwv1It is available to connect to, but does not connect. I just watch the litte connect widget cycle through for a few, but no connection02:31
stigma_SIFTU: Can you point me to good documentation for that?  I am not well versed in Linux.  I've used Ubuntu in the past, not far from a power user.  Also, should I chose to reinstall Windoze parallel to Ubuntu, will the software RAID cause problems with Windows?02:31
noisewaterphdmaynardwv1: are you able to get connection wirelessly?02:32
maynardwv1yes. without issue02:32
stigma_SIFTU: Excuse me: that should be "but far from a power user".  Very far from a power user, lol.02:32
noisewaterphdmaynardwv1: because unfortunately at this point its diving into a whole different matter of your router and its setup. I will go ahead and assume you have made sure that the ethernet cable is actually plugged in at each end02:33

datakidI'm still getting wide char errors, even though it should be ok with utf8?02:34
SIFTUstigma_: you will need to break the RAID on the mb, which could cause problems with your windows install if you have already installed it on there02:34
datakidsorry, I should re phrase that02:34

noisewaterphdedwardthefma: ping your domain address real quick and see if you are getting served the correct ip02:42
Pilif12pwhy does my computer suddenly shut down after i unplug it?02:42
SIFTUstigma_: so you partition each ssd the same, probably 3 partitions, 200Mb for /boot XXGb for / , XXGB for swap and XXGB for windows, then when you install you combine the / and swap to be raid 002:42
noisewaterphdedwardthefma: could be caching an old one or something02:42
Pilif12pi suppose i should mention that this is a laptop :P02:42
SIFTUstigma_: no more than the MB RAID, as the MB RAID uses the cpu too.. basicially on modern CPU's there is plenty of power for the CPU to do RAID02:42
edwardthefma<noisewaterphd> it works for other pepol to vewe02:42

edwardthefmai just cant acess it for som weard reson on this particular pc02:43
noisewaterphdedwardthefma: your personal machine could be caching an old record02:43
stigma_SIFTU: Honestly, do you think it's better (e.g. less likely for me to blow up), if I simply break the RAID altogether and install one OS on one disk and the other OS on the opposite?02:43
SIFTUstigma_: usually <5% CPU for RAID depending on specs and disk speed etc. My dual core atom is good for 400Mb/s read with the linux raid02:43
edwardthefmaits not just the web brouser02:43
noisewaterphdedwardthefma: your router can cache an old record, your particular isp can cache an old record, etc, etc,02:43
Pilif12pnoisewaterphd: no, it's only about a year and a half old, it started today, it doesn't full the full charge anymore, but it says 91% with 3.5 hours left right now02:43
Pilif12pIt only happens right after I unplug, then I can reboot02:44
stigma_SIFTU: I'm running a Phenom II x602:44
SIFTUstigma_: you could do that.. but I thought you wanted the performance increase of RAID002:44
Pilif12pIt says that the battery level is critical, then shuts down, with no more than 5 seconds warning02:44
edwardthefma<noisewaterphd> is thare a way to fix this quickly02:44
Pilif12phm, i should be in #ubuntu+1 i guess...02:44

stigma_SIFTU: Oh I do, but if this is a solution that is likely to fail given my experience level... what can ya do?  Think I can handle it given zero software RAID experience and very little Linux experience?02:45
maynardwv1my bad, auto etho02:45
SIFTUstigma_: software raid actually has advantages too.. you can rebuild on any linux system (not MB dependant etc)02:45

Avenger143221no i can use the ethernet in windows perfectly04:53

FoolsRunAvenger: not to beat a horse, but you're _sure_ it's ethernet and not the wireless in Windows?04:54
theadminFoolsRun: You are wrong, Windows defaults to ethernet if it's actually present04:54
FoolsRunMonona: is it your boot drive you need to fsck?04:54

FoolsRunAvenger: technically yes, but it'd be way easier if we could get your ethernet working and you could just run the restricted drivers tool05:02
Avenger14322ya but im wondering if its too hard to figure out the ethernet and if it may save time to just get the wireless drivers05:03
Avenger14322unless you disagree and can help me further05:03

oooaaaooohi guys, i have a laptop with 11.04 installed. I want to get the wireless drivers installed for it but it doesnt have hardwired access to the network. Can I download and install the packages(if any) offline?05:03
DDRHello. Trying the live boot CD from the website on my laptop, 11.04 64-bit version, and it won't boot up. It gets stuck trying and failing to load CUPS. Next, it froze my computer's bootloader. Got stuck at 'Press f2 for setup.' forever. Worked again when I manually ejected the disk, so I put the disk back in and tried the 'check disk for errors' option. It worked for a moment, stood still,...05:04
DDR...and it just powered the computer off. Any tips?05:04

dumbo88dfcnvt if you want to promote it, why not prep a package ?05:22
ShirakawasunaGeoffrey2: Ah. So does that mean it was the card reader and not linux (does it do this in windows?)?05:23
Geoffrey2Shirakawasuna, I'll have to try, fortunately this computer dual boots Ubuntu and Vista, so I can load in there, try a few cards, and see what happens...but at least in Linux, it looks like the firmware simply can't handle the HC cards05:25
Geoffrey2Shirakawasuna, it's a known issue with older SD card readers, and generally there's no solution but replacement....05:27

DominosPizzaHello.  I'm thinking about using LTS versions of ubuntu.  However, is there something special I'd be missing out on if I use the LTS versions ? Any fancy new software or anything that would make me go "jolly, I wish I had that version instead" ?05:35
Stanley00DominosPizza: LTS is for stable, if you want new software, ues the newest ubuntu version05:36
Stanley00!LTS | DominosPizza05:36
ubottuDominosPizza: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)05:36
RobbieCrashDominosPizza: check this out http://www.differencebetween.com/difference-between-ubuntu-10-10-and-vs-ubuntu-11-04/05:36
DominosPizzayeah I know what LTS is05:36
gregorywsAnybody here familiar with SAMBA/filesharing on 11.04?05:37
DominosPizzaRobbieCrash: that's more what i'm looking for05:37
RobbieCrashgregoryws what do you need05:37
DominosPizzaRobbieCrash: but that's 10.10 vs 11.04..05:37
RobbieCrashDominosPizza I'm not sure what all is different on the desktop end, but from what I understand, Unity is new and wonderful/awful, Ubuntu One seems nice.05:37
DominosPizzaRobbieCrash: seems they are claiming to have a better preformance when 11.04 hits due to the new kernels.05:39

arovijRobbieCrash : Please help me with making correct entries in sources.list. Those entries are a result of trial and error.05:48
gregorywsOne machine has stock smb.conf file, that I manually added one share to, and the other share was created through Nautilus.  The other is stock all the way.05:48
DominosPizzakaren_m: I doubt even intel verterilazation or AMD-V/SMV would run games well in a virtual machine..05:49
RobbieCrasharovij you stated you can't update due to legacy reasons, I can't give you a list of repositories that are safe for you to use. It would probably be easier to download firefox source and build from source05:49
karen_mDominosPizza, i have not tried that.  for gaming, i reboot... I've got an i5 with 6990, and if i want to game I reboot into windows.  grub ftw05:50

karen_mGirly-Girl has a problem with our conversation05:52
RobbieCrasharovij, do you have build-dep installed?05:52
RobbieCrashtry just doing apt-get install build-dep05:52

glebihanarovij, first thing, there are no packages for hardy at all in that ppa05:52

Girly-GirlHi I have kubuntu 11.04. Aparently something removed kde-workspace packages. I am stuck without GUI now as KDM will not login to anything. I know how to fix this but I need an Internet connection. How can I connect to a 802.11g WPA-PSK wireless network from command line?05:55
gregorywsOnly the one who is currently the "MASTER", and then only it's own local shares...05:55
glebihanarovij, well I don't know exactly how this site works, but it doesn't really matter05:56
RobbieCrashso Master can browse its own shares, but not slave's and slave cannot browse either? Does it matter who the master is?05:56
Us3r_UnfriendlyGirly-Girl I'm running off a machine with no X either05:56
arovijglebihan : ok..05:56
glebihanarovij, as I said there are no packages for hardy in the ppa you added, and there is no chance you'll ever get to build firefox 10 for it05:56

arovijglebihan : I can't build this on later versions of ubuntu.. I have to build with 6.06 ... what entries can I make?05:58
gregorywsRobbieCrash is there a difference between browsing the SAMBA share normally and doing it through localhost?05:58
glebihanarovij, nothing you can do. It simply won't work. And why adding a hardy repository on 6.06 ? Why do you need to build for that version05:59
=== Guest95980 is now known as Hiz
Girly-GirlIdeas for wireless?05:59
th0rGirly-Girl: you can configure the network in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf and /etc/network/interfaces, then use ifup to bring it up06:00
RobbieCrashGirly-Girl, assuming eth0, all commands are sudo, ifdown eht0; dhclient -r eth0; ifup eth0, iwconfig eth0 essid "SSID"; iwconfig eth0 key HEXKEYNOTASCII | iwconfig eth0 key s:ASCIIKEY06:00
Us3r_Unfriendlymucho better06:00
arovijglebihan : I have to make some changes for firefox and later deploy it on some 100 odd machines.. Now these machines use very old version of linux. i have to replicate the same enviornment in my machine..06:00
Girly-GirlRobbieCrash: Does it have to be in ASCI?06:00
RobbieCrashgregoryws it just goes out over the network that way, rather than just browsing through the file explorer.06:01
RobbieCrashGirly-Girl the last one is OR, not both06:01
Girly-GirlRobbieCrash: OR???06:02
Geoffrey2Shirakawasuna, yep, tried in Vista, the regular SD card loaded right up, the SDHC card was totally ignored...06:02

RobbieCrashGirly-Girl the | for or06:02
Girly-GirlRobbieCrash: ok06:02
glebihanarovij, well 6.06 is way outdated... and not supported at all. The thing to do is either upgrade those machines or stick with old versions of firefox06:03
RobbieCrashso you either do iwconfig eth0 key HEXKEY, OR you do iwconfig eth0 key s:ASCIIKEY06:03

dfcnvtPanArtur: I recently tried out your command, found out update-rc isn't in ubuntu06:14
RobbieCrashgregoryws unfortunately, that smb error is the generic one, so it's hard to troubleshoot.06:15
dfcnvtPanArtur: Would update-rc.d do?06:15
PanArturdfcnvt: ooo my mistake. yes06:16
RobbieCrashcan you grep through /var/log/samba/log.OTHERHOST06:16
PanArtur dfcnvt rc.d06:16
dfcnvtto be sure.. does it have to be a script file or init file?06:16
PanArturdfcnvt: I think it could be symlink06:17
dfcnvtokay, how do I undo them?06:17
gregorywsRobbieCrash don't I know it.  It took me two days to get the first smb share going on my desktop.  I'd swear that UBU11.04 samba doesn't behave the way stock samba is supposed to.  I finally managed to get it to where I could access it repeatedly from other windows/ubuntu pc's on my lan.  But today, it's not even browsable..06:17

glebihandfcnvt, is your script just a task to run on boot or really a service ?06:20
gregorywsdummy what's your target viewing platform?06:20
dfcnvtIt's a firewall script.06:21
dummywell, to make a long story short...I have ubuntu at home and mac at school.06:21
glebihandfcnvt, ok but is it just something that needs to be run one time on boot, or does it keep running in background afterwards ?06:22
dummyI need quicktime.  I don't have windows anymore...waaah.06:22
dfcnvtI'd like to have my firewall to run at all time.06:22
dfcnvtSo, run on boot every time.06:22
dummywindows withdrawals06:23
glebihandfcnvt, you didn't really answer my question. Does you script just do some initializations or does it keep running ?06:24
gregorywsdummy do you need to convert files to watch them on the mac or convert to watch on the UBUNTU?06:24
dummyI am going to install the ppa handbrake like you said awhile back06:25
dfcnvtglebihan, both, this script requires a boot everytime the machine run. Meaning, it keep running in the background.06:25
RobbieCrashgregoryws and you haven't changed any of your smb.conf or iptables, or installed any firewalls or anything?06:25
RobbieCrashon either box?06:25
dfcnvtglebihan: So, assuming this line, "update-rc.d firewall defaults" is what I want it to do.06:26
gregorywsRobbieCrash not since it last worked across my network.  And I haven't touched my iptables.  I didn't even know what UFW was, till I ran down a T/S lead.06:27
dfcnvtglebihan, not to be confused, this script run once for iptables to set up the configuration. This script doesn't require a long running in the background.06:27
dummyhow do I install a ppa?06:28
dfcnvtglebihan: maybe that is answering your question?06:28
glebihandfcnvt, err, well not really. You just told be that it both kept running in background and did not. Which one is it ?06:28
gregorywsdummy can you, or, have you included med-buntu in your repo list?06:29
dummyI    will look now06:29
dfcnvtglebihan, let me be clear again. This script only need to run once at the boot up.06:30
gregorywsThere are alot of "grey-area" packages for video playback.  There isn't a video I  haven't been able to play on my Ubuntu pc.  Medi-buntu might be your ticket..06:30
dummyno medibuntu06:30
* rhin0 never had a problem with vid on ubuntu06:30
rhin0use totem06:30
glebihandfcnvt, ok then the simplest way is just to put a line to run that script in /etc/rc.local06:30
rhin0or use ..06:30
rhin0whats the name --- the player06:30
rhin0plays eveyhting06:31
dfcnvt..Okay, I'll check06:31
dummyfound medibuntu in launchpad06:31
dummyokay load medibuntu first06:31
gregorywsdummy google medibuntu  the homepage has instructions on how to add it.06:32
gregorywsRobbieCrash  would simply enabling guest accounts through the smb.conf be the way to check what you suggested earlier?06:33

keyzscan anyone tell me how i open port for utorrent on ubuntu 11.0406:35

dfcnvtglebihan: Am I to understand the purpose of rc.local is to run at the end of the booting's sequence?06:35
gregorywsdummy finding the right packages sometimes takes trial and error.  I've found that different flavors of ubuntu (kubu, xub, ubu, etc) and different versions favor different media players.  DVD playback usually takes a little tinkering for example..06:36
glebihandfcnvt, that's right06:36
dummythis is all new to me06:36
dfcnvtglebihan, thanks... I think I'm interested in learning more about rc06:36
dummybut it certainly is more fun that windows06:36
dummythere is no way I would have found this chat on windows06:37
glebihandfcnvt, that may not be such a good idea actually (I mean to learn too much about it). It's not deprecated on ubuntu and is only still there for compatibility reasons06:37
glebihandfcnvt, the init process is now handled by upstart, so this is probably what you'll want to learn about06:37
glebihanmeant "it's *now* deprecated"06:38
dummyty and goodnight from ca06:40
jasefFirst time I've heard about upstart.... time to research.06:40
dfcnvtglebihan: I might be interested in making my own distro, say, gentoo... Would this learning process require me to understand rc?06:40

xgt001ardithoxha, are you on 10.10 or 10.04?07:10
ardithoxhaxgt001: im 10.1007:10
mekwallhmm, for some reason Ubuntu doesn't remember my ssh passwords. what could be the reason for this?07:10
xgt001Northwoods, are u referring to /home/user or just /home directory07:10
mekwallkeeps asking me for passwords when autofs is remouting my ssh mounts07:10
jasefNorthwoods, /home is owned by root, I think, and /home/<user> is owned by the user07:10
Northwoodsxgt001: you mean i need to create a user /home/user/  , then i can create files and folders under it ?07:11
jasefmekwall, have you tried using keys for autoauth? I don't think it does remember SSH passwords.07:11
mekwalljasef: I am using password protected keys07:12
jasefmekwall, Oh... I'm not sure about it remembering those - I use keys without a password so I don't have to enter anything to connect07:12
xgt001Northwoods, see if your user name is sample then the home  will have /home/sample directory where you have the full access to create anything07:12
bhaveshsusundberg: But can't I use the second command # dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/sdX bs=446 count=1 ? Because the statement above it says "Just remove MBR, without the partition table "07:12
mekwalljasef: heh... well, it's for remote access to corporate servers so I have to have passwords on the keys ;)07:13
bhaveshsusundberg: Just because I dont currently have windows DVD :(07:13
xgt001Northwoods, you cant modify /home folder07:13
somsipmekwall: that's what password protected kets do. You'll have to regen them without keys to avoid that07:13

ardithoxhaxgt001: im 10.10 as said but what is name of that app for system scheme?07:14

bhaveshsusundberg: ok07:14
susundbergbhavesh: you can also write the grub such that it will boot directly to windows, and then from windows erase the linux partition07:14

Jordan_UVelshtein: Can you pastebin the output of "sudo blkid"?07:47
susundbergVelshtein: I am kind of out ideas what to do. I would probably try to dig up first why its a) showing up as dm-0 if its not LVM disk -- could it be that its encrypted disk with LVM and it shows in they way it does -- or is it maybe corrupted?07:47
susundbergVelshtein: oh good somebody else with more skillz is showing up07:48
VelshteinJordan_U: http://pastebin.com/sjMHTj5807:48
VelshteinJordan_U: /dev/sda and dev/sdb are both my drives07:49
dannNHi. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 Server on VirtualBox. How can i load a CD mounted to the virtual cd drive in command line?07:50
VelshteinJordan_U: also note that this is a dual-boot machine. Those NTFS drives are for Win707:50
Jordan_UVelshtein: Can you pastebin the output of "ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/" ?07:50
VelshteinJordan_U: jesus. yes. give me a second. lots of pretty colors07:51
VelshteinJordan_U: http://pastebin.com/iaY3hJun07:51
Jordan_UdannN: sudo mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/07:51
VelshteinJordan_U: on that note, I see a mention of something being unformatted. Surely it would show up in Nautilus then?07:52
Jordan_UVelshtein: It looks like encrypted swap "cryptswap" which would mean that it has no files on it.07:53
dannNJordan_U: thank you07:53
Jordan_UdannN: You're welcome.07:53
VelshteinJordan_U: Interesting. He claims otherwise. Is there a reason it isn't showing up to mount?07:54
VelshteinJordan_U: Or, assuming he's wrong, how would I access it to format it?07:54
jasefI just find it strange that it said it had an invalid partitioning table O-o07:55
Jordan_UVelshtein: Does /dev/dm-0 go away if you remove your friend's disk?07:55
=== syadamin|away is now known as sysadamin
VelshteinJordan_U: Depends how long you're willing to wait. I don't know how safe it is to pull the SATA cable directly out of the drive while the computer is on07:55
Jordan_UVelshtein: I'm guessing from the fact that only two physical devices (/dev/sda and /dev/sdb) are listed that your friends drive is not currently being recognised at all. My guess is that /dev/dm-0 is actually part of your normal system.07:56
VelshteinJordan_U: that's odd, because the BIOS recognized it07:57
VelshteinJordan_U: Are there any other drive formats out there that Ubuntu wouldn't read by default?07:57
Jordan_UVelshtein: As an ugly last resort you can always copy off the files with FreeDOS then (DOS uses the BIOS to access drives).07:58
GirlyGirlHi how to I generate a package download script with apt-get or aptitude?07:59
Jordan_UVelshtein: Only obscure FakeRAID, and in that case I think we would still see the member devices as /dev/sdc, /dev/sde etc in /dev/disk/by-id/ (though I may be wrong, I don't work much with FakeRAID).07:59
VelshteinJordan_U: Interesting. How would I go about that?07:59
VelshteinJordan_U: Hmm. Let me do a quick reboot and see what the drive is listed as in the BIOS08:00
Jordan_UVelshtein: /join ##freedos.08:00
Jordan_UVelshtein: I need to leave now. Good luck.08:00
VelshteinJordan_U: thanks for the help mate08:00
Jordan_UVelshtein: You're welcome.08:00
gregorywsSAMBA problem: Ubuntu 11.04 on 2 PCs; both running full SAMBA from 11.04 repos, smbclient of localhost proves both are aware of each other. But only master can browse and only it's own shares, no matter which one is master at the time.08:01
sammyI thought checking the 'make available for all users' in a network setting in network-manager would make the computer connect to that wireless network at boot. please tell me I dont have to completely NOT use network-manager to have my computer connect to an available wireless network at boot?08:02
sammy(at boot read: before a user logs into gdm)08:02
gregorywssammy I'm late to this party, but are you using a bluetooth or other device external to your machine?08:03
sammyexternal? its not bluetooth or usb. its an internal wireless card.08:04
almoxarifegregoryws: how did you setup samba?08:05
sammyand you're not late gregoryws I just like to jump right in.08:05
sammymaybe checking 'make available for all users' and having it connect at boot is only for wired connections. I swear Ive seen this behavior before without having to manually configure the connection in a console. I thought network manager, since it starts at boot, could connect to a wireless network at boot. I know how to configure /etc/network/interfaces to connect at boot, but Id rather network-manager handle it if possible.08:06
almoxarifegregoryws: listen to sammy08:06
sammyalmoxarife: I have no idea what gregoryws is trying to do :P sorry, I was asking my own question08:06
gregorywsalmoxarife the first PC took awhile, ubuntu 11.04 uses a modified samba setup.  It took me >10hours to get to a working samba share as I wanted it.08:07
gregorywsBUT it worked08:07
Guest98726anybody here familliar with the usb katana?08:07
gregorywsNow, over a week later, I can't access the shares anymore across the network08:08
almoxarifegregoryws: yet they don't share data between them, as sammy said, via nautilus setup sharing, its painless, unless you have configured something in the conf that would negate the changes introduced by the nautilus method08:08
sammyanymore? the shares have disappeared? we'll have to play the 'what changed' game08:08
sammyalmoxarife: again, I have no idea what gregoryws is talking about, I was asking my own question, not responding to him.08:08
almoxarifesammy: got it08:10
sammymy issue is wireless not being started at boot, which is what I thought the behavior was when you checked 'make available for all users' or however its written. though almoxarife sounds right, if you configured samba manually, it might be best to ask in a samba setting, and not here. everyone here tends to be very 'use the UbuntuWay or "do it yourself" as linus would say'08:10
sammywhich would be great if everything worked out of the box more often than not :P devs lately are a bit too worried about bells and whistles to worry about regressions and unified behavior across the board.08:11
ga_pro1988 #join backtrack-linux08:11
almoxarifesammy: yes, if wireless is checked and some wifi is set to auto-all I would expect it to be up at boot08:11
sammyalmoxarife: auto-all? in /etc/NetworkManager or some sort?08:11
gregorywsThe 'Ubuntu Way' isn't working right now either.08:12
ga_pro1988how do i join backtrack??08:12
almoxarifesammy: yes, in networkmanager, no cli and no conf changes08:12
sammyga_pro1988: I think you're looking for /join #channelname08:12
ikoniaga_pro1988: #backtrack-linux is the channel name08:13
almoxarifegregoryws: is what you want in the end to have two desktops being able to share files? and are they in the same network?08:13
sammygregoryws: if you'd like, try installing etckeeper. that will commit your /etc to a concurrent version system. then try apt-get purging any samba packages, and re install them. that might guarantee any config changes youve made that would hose the 'UbuntuWay' are purged08:13
sammygregoryws: if that doesn't work, you can use the cvs system set up in /etc/ to restore that directory to its previous version08:13
sammymaybe concurrent version system isnt the right term; whatever CVS stands for, git and bzr and the like08:14
sammyalmoxarife: so ill fire up my user, check to make sure ... auto-all you say. I dont know where to find this but I'll poke around in the network-manager gui08:14
almoxarifesammy: in the wifi tab of net-manager08:15
gregorywsalmoxarife yes, and yes.  smbclient -L localhost yields :http://paste.ubuntu.com/702630/08:15
almoxarifegregoryws: and to achive the above discussed you installed full samba?08:16
sammyin the wifi tab of network manager all I see is a list of networks, their names and when they were last used, nd three buttons to add/edit and delete networks08:16
gregorywsalmoaxarife if you attempt to share a folder thrue nautilus, it will ask to install full samba.. so I did on both machines08:17
sammyoh! look at that. the 'available to all users' isnt checked. whoooooops08:17
ga_pro1988why i can't go to web site backtrack??08:18
ikoniaga_pro1988: no idea, ask the guys in #backtrack-linux08:18
gregorywssammy didn't know cvs could be used like that...08:18
awaadI want to install RHEL 6 besides my Ubuntu 11.04 on my laptop08:19
awaadIs there any tool that can help me to install it from my flash memory ?08:19
sammygregoryws: its a very handy tool. etckeeper actually runs commits before and after each apt procedure, in case the installation/removal of software makes changes to /etc files you don't like. its one of the first things i install on every debian machine08:19
almoxarifegregoryws: it does a bit more than that, may I suggest you un-install what ever you installed above what was on the machine already related to samba, then using nautilus right click on the folders you want to share, insure everything is checked , most important is that 'anyone' can access , I have been down the road of full installs and I have always gone back to the method discussed above, because it works08:20
iuytfri got 3 pc on my LAN, i want to sent message over broadcast08:20
iuytfrany idea ?08:20
sammyawaad: flash memory as in a usb stick? or sd card? I beleive unetbootin is a very good tool for that, though ubuntu does have its own usb disk creator. i forget its name exactly, googling should yield it.08:21
gregorywssammy etckeeper?  I'll write that down:)08:21
sammyiuytfr: could you be more specific? send a message how, exactly? to where?08:21
awaadsammy: It is a usb stick08:21
awaadsammy: Do you mean "Ubuntu Live Usb Creator" ?08:22
sammyawaad: thats the one08:23
ajayi have a prob with ubuntu one on xubuntu any help?08:23
bazhangajay, try #ubuntuone08:23
AdvoWorkhow can i tell if the version of ubuntu i have installed is desktop or server edition? cat /etc/issue just shows Ubuntu 10.04 LTS \n \l08:23
ikoniaajay: #xubuntu - some of the guys where saying it no longer works with xubuntu08:23
awaadsammy: Do you think it will help me for installing not Ubuntu but RHEL6 ?08:23
ikoniaajay: up to you08:24
ikoniaajay: sorry, that was for awaad08:24
gregorywsalmoxarife wouldn't the 'anyone' can access make it too easy for someone to steal files?08:24
ikoniaajay: the guys in #xubuntu where saying that ubuntuone no longer works with xubuntu08:24
sammyAdvoWork: 'server' and 'desktop' editions of ubuntu only differ by having different meta-packages installed that contain different software. there is no real difference. if you check for the installation of ubuntu-desktop, that will tell you08:24
AdvoWorksammy, how would i check that, from the console? sorry08:25
almoxarifegregoryws: if its not a home net then you can leave it unchecked, you will have to provide user and pass info when you try to log in though to the other folders08:25
sammyAdvoWork: from many places. synaptic package manager, for a GUI. you can run 'sudo apt-cache policy ubuntu-desktop' from the command line, too.08:25
awaadikonia, sammy: I found UNetbootin in Ubuntu repositories. But I want to use it to install RHEL from USB flash memory not on the USB flash memory08:26
almoxarifesammy: that /etckeeper looks interesting, do I have to already have git access or is it all done on install?08:26
awaadikonia, sammy: Will it help ?08:26
ajayikonia:i see but any specific reason why it does not work?08:26
VelshteinAaaand we have an interesting update to my little issue:08:26
VelshteinDrive appears in the BIOS during a cold boot. When I try to boot my linux partition, it hangs on loading cmain(). If I do a standard reboot, the drive disappears in the BIOS.08:26
VelshteinOn a whim, I booted from a LiveCD. Lo and behold, when I try to access /dev/sda I get the lovely "Permission denied"08:27
FloodBot1Velshtein: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.08:27
GirlyGirlHi what is the smallest download install in the repos for a very basic desktop environment for recovery purposes as I am stuck in CLI right now.08:27
ajaybazhang:wil try thanks08:27
sammyawaad: i'm sorry, yes, unetbootin is what you'd like. the live usb creator only makes ubuntu images, I think. unetbootin can use a pre-existing disk image file, or it can download one of many different images online08:27
GirlyGirlFixing KDE needs some downloading over the Internet and its too difficult without Wifi.08:27
awaadsammy: Thanks a lot08:28
sammyGirlyGirl: and youre looking for a gui live cd? I think there's only the 650mb image or the 'alternate' image which doesn't have X08:28
AdvoWorksammy, out of interest, what exactly does sudo apt-cache policy ubuntu-desktop do?08:29
GirlyGirlsammy: No a small de to install on a currently working Ubuntu without GUI08:29
bazhangGirlyGirl, lubuntu-desktop08:29
GirlyGirlbazhang: How big is that?08:30
sammyAdvoWork: try 'man apt-cache' and look for policy :) it will tell you what versions of a particular package you have installed, and where versions of that package are availabe to install from, ie local versions, or repositories08:30
AdvoWorkok, nice one thanks08:30
bazhangGirlyGirl, no idea08:30
GirlyGirlsammy: bazhang I've tried all sorts of ways to connect to w WPA network from CLI but it always fails connecting, if I manage to do that I know how to fix KDE08:31
AdvoWorksammy, doh -bash: man: command not found lol, i forgot it was a base system, ive got a copy on another server though08:31
StarminnWho could help me (or steer me in the direction of help) with this error: 'Unable to connect: java.security.AccessControlException : access denied (java.lang.RuntimePermission getProtectionDomain)' -- this really doesn't have anything to do with Ubuntu, but you guys are great redirectors.08:32
sammyAdvoWork: just run the policy command, i promise it wont do anything but spit out if 'ubuntu-desktop' is installed or not :) you could even try just installing ubuntu-desktop with apt-get and see if it tries to install, or says its already installed. that will tell you if you ahve a desktop install.08:32
sammyAdvoWork: i didnt mean to make it more complicated by suggesting you read the man page08:32
sammyStarminn: did you try putting the entirety of the error into google? ;)08:33
AdvoWorksammy, its not, dont worry, also is it just sudo apt-get install manpages or man (both exist) ?08:33
xannenBetween xen and virtualbox which is easy to use and install?08:34
Starminnsammy: Yes, I did, but I'd rather not comb through hours of reading on Oracles site (especially when what I did read, as well as skim I could not find the answer)08:34
sammyAdvoWork: I couldn't tell you which package youre trying to install, but I can tell you right now, if you tried to run man and nothing happened, you definitely do not have ubuntu-desktop installed. in fact id be surprised if you have ubuntu-minimal installed.08:35
AdvoWorksammy, afaik its a base/barebones ubuntu server(installed from debian via xen as a virtual machine, so i think it always installs the server version, was just checking)08:36
=== Robert_ is now known as Guest85307
sammyStarminn: hm. try googling for different parts of the error and see if you can find someone other than the oracle website,maybe. sorry, maybe someone else recognizes the error, but I don't. I usually have luck finding a blog or some such where someone has had the same error as I.08:36
Starminnsammy: :) Yeah, usually a search of the whole things solves it pretty quick. :) Alright, well thank you for your time08:37
VelshteinI can't seem to access my /dev/sda drive. Using gparted to print the information gives me an "unrecognized disk label" error. Opinions?08:37
VelshteinAnd fdisk doesn't even mention the thing08:38
sammyGirlyGirl: so you're looking for another desktop environment to be able to help you connect to your wifi? from which you can then fix the problem?08:38
sammyVelshtein: can you run 'disk utility'?08:38
shubham_rathihey is razer death adder mouse supported on ubuntu?08:39
Velshteinsammy: sorry, relatively new to linux here. What's the command?08:39
GirlyGirlshubham_rathi: Yes08:39
GirlyGirlshubham_rathi: sorry08:39
GirlyGirlsammy: Yes08:39
sammyVelshtein: are you in a gui or the command line? disk utility is a gui tool.08:39
Velshteinah. i've got the terminal open but i'm also browsing via nautilus08:40
shubham_rathigirlygirl sorry for what?? :P08:40
Velshteinsammy: i've got a copy of nautilus that seems to recognize the drive in my dev/disk/by-id folder, but it doesn't show up anywhere else08:40
sammyVelshtein: Id see if you can run 'disk utility' which I believe is a gtk tool, so if youre using kubuntu it might not be there. its a very handy, comprehensive tool for examining disks08:41
sammyand GirlyGirl I dunno. you're looking for a super tiny de, but anything less than xfce, kde or gnome, and you'd probably have to use a third-party tool to connect to the wireless, like wicd08:42
Velshteinsammy: would love to. is it possible to do from a LiveCD? because that's the only way I can boot an OS and keep the drive accessible in the BIOS08:42
cvamif I opened many windows like browsers with many tabs, media player,  terminal emulator and moving between tabs and windows ,  system gets to console screen(black & text only) and prints some system messages. Why this happened08:42
sammyGirlyGirl: you might be able to run something very simple like twm (tiny window manager) and run wicd from within08:42
GirlyGirlsammy: I already have knetworkmanager and basically nthe complete kde except for kde-workspace which has problems . I can't ask here about that as its not an ubuntu maintained kde.08:43
gregorywscvam can you go back to your desktop?08:43
GirlyGirlsammy: I was thinking this http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/lxde-core08:44
sammyVelshtein: I think disk utility comes on a live cd, yes. if it doesnt you can still install packages, they just wont persist from one boot to the next. i'm not sure what the package contains disk utility, you can search packages.ubuntu.com though08:44
cvamgregoryws: no system get struck there and i have to reboot08:44
hypertypercan grub be accessed from windows to change entries?08:44
Velshteinsammy: ah, super. I found it08:44
sammyGirlyGirl: I honestly dont know if any of the other window managers have built-in network manager support, or even their own network configuration applications.08:44
ikoniahypertyper: no08:44
vltHello. When I open an .odt document in the program crashes after a few seconds. What to check first?08:44
samsuldisk utility > palimsest08:45
samsulpalimsest is the package name...08:45
gregorywscvam so ctrl+alt+Function key doesn't get you back?08:45
sammyvlt: try ~/.xsession-errors08:45
GirlyGirlsammy: But I should be able to launch knetworkmanager once lxde is up08:45
cvamgregoryws: i have not tried. is it due to segmentation fault08:46
GirlyGirlsammy: Rebooting from win xp to try it out08:46
Velshteinsammy: i've got it up and running. Interestingly enough, I've got "-" for a variety of options, and the Volumes are all Unknown.08:46
sammyGirlyGirl: you could launch knetworkmanager within twm (tiny window manager) if all you need is window decorations and a way to start an xterm08:46
gregorywscvam so then, the system messages mentioned above include an error message about a segmentation fault?08:47
vltsammy: Nothing is written there when OpenOffice closes.08:47
sammyVelshtein: well that doesn't sound good. its possible the disk has been formatted/partitioned in some odd way? maybe hardware failure? disk utility should also give you SMART data to see if your disk is failing.08:48
Velshteinsammy: doesn't say failing. Simply says "Not Supported"08:48
Velshteinsammy: I'm more curious and intrigued than worried.08:48
sammyvlt: maybe you can run openoffice in a terminal and see if it spits out any errors, or try /var/log/Xorg.0.log (if I got the file name right)08:49
sammyVelshtein: usb disk?08:49
Velshteinsammy: negative. Hard drive. 1 TB08:49
Velshteinsammy: yes08:49
sammyim not sure why a sata drive wouldnt be reporting smart data.08:49
Velshteinsammy: is there a formatting type that Ubuntu wouldn't recognize by default?08:50
cvamgregoryws: once i  have seen08:50
sammyVelshtein: really really odd ones? nothing that was created by windows or ubuntu08:50
Velshteinsammy: and i'm seeing 3 partitions, though all Unknown. 1000 GB, 247 MB, 123 MB08:50
sammyVelshtein: is it posisble theyre exfat?08:50
pamwe_chetei need some help setting up a kios using ubuntu - it's a touch screen - and i need to limit the user to firefox and limit firefox to one domain only08:51
sammyexfat isn't supported by default in ubuntu, I don't think. I had to install a fuse driver from a ppa. disk utility just saw them and was confused. but knew that they werent blank.08:51
pamwe_cheteis there a tutorial somewhere , i cant find anything on the web08:51
Velshteinsammy: maybe? like I said, I received this drive from a friend who has a client that needs to access it. Says it has family photos on it08:51
sammypamwe_chete: I think google will be your friend. I dont think ubuntu has a specific mode for a kiosk install. you might also want to look into using a specific distribution created for kiosks.08:53
oooaaaooohi guys, how do i create a terminal shortcut on the desktop in 11.04 unity?08:53
gregorywscvam keypress combination of ctrl+alt+Fx (functionkeys 1 thru 12) can switch terminals on standard Ubuntu.  Right now my desktop is on F7, but its osmetimes changes. If your desktop crashed then you probsbly will have to check to system logs.  Someone a little smarter than me will have to direct you on that I beleive.08:53
sammyVelshtein: look into installing the fuse-exfat driver from the ppa. then you can mount them manually.  im not sure what other partitions these days arent recognized. gparted is pretty comprehensive in its recognition of partition types.08:54
nergal_I have a strange problem. According to ifconfig my if recieves traffic. But when performing tcpdump on that interface I get no packets (without any rules). Anyone knows why this may happen?08:54
pamwe_chetesammy, google isn't helping much, and the client insists that the os is ubuntu, he's a zulu guy and ubuntu is a word from his language, i think he's a bit obesessed with ubuntu08:54
oooaaaooohi guys, how do i create a terminal shortcut on the desktop in 11.04 unity?08:55
cvamgregoryws: probably desktop is crashing . thank you any way08:55
sammyoooaaaooo: right click on the desktop and select 'create launcher' also, google is your friend.08:55
pamwe_chetesammy, i know the freedom toaster kiosk is ubuntu, so it's should be easy, i just can't find anything08:55
Starminnoooaaaooo: You could just "Create Launcher" and then set ithe command ot the name of your Terminal program08:55
pamwe_chetenever mind , i found what i was looking for08:56
gregorywsoooaaaooo also ctrl+alt+t will get a terminal08:56
almoxarifepamwe_chete: there is a guest account, and without knowing the user info a guest won't get anyplace else08:56
sammypamwe_chete: I hate to break it to you, but something that specific is probably done manually in most places. if google isnt finding an out-of-the-box kiosk install, it might not exist.08:56
oooaaaooogregoryws: cool but is there anyway i can create a desktop launcher?08:57
Starminnoooaaaooo: I just told you.08:57
almoxarifepamwe_chete: in 11.04 run in classic you could remove all the panels? leaving firefox on the desktop?08:57
gregorywsoooaaaooo also if you click the button in the upper left corner and navigate to a program, you can drag the icon into the launcher bar08:58
almoxarifesammy: think out of the box, make it work!, think its snowing and lives depend on it, if it were easy anyone could do it08:58
oooaaaoooStarminn: sorry yeah i tried that but it doesnt work. Im using "bash" as a command08:58
oooaaaooogregoryws: no i want it on my desktop08:59
Starminnoooaaaooo: Heheh... You're not searching anything, are you? *sigh* Google really *is* your friend. Alright, try "gnome-terminal" I suppose?08:59
oooaaaoooStarminn: im on unity08:59
Velshteinsammy: exfat support currently a work in progress. I'll let you know what happens08:59
almoxarifeoooaaaooo: get it from /users/share/applications, drag it to the desktop09:00
Starminnoooaaaooo: And?09:00
pamwe_chetealmoxarifa : yes it's possible to lock-down gnome and create a kisok where the user only has access to firefox09:00
sammyoooaaaooo: you cant use bash as a command, bash is a shell interpreter. you need an X application, like xterm, or terminal, or terminator. you cant run a bash shell in X without a window to run it in.09:00
pamwe_chetehttp://users.telenet.be/mydotcom/howto/linuxkiosk/ubuntu01.htm <-- ubuntu kios09:01
gregorywsoooaaaooo yep, xterm is a valid app on mine...09:01
Velshteinsammy: interesting. attempting to mount the drive manually as a exfat drive gives me "BUG: failed to read 512 bytes from file at 0."09:01
Starminnoooaaaooo: Unity is just a shell -- it still uses GNOME, so one would think that it would still use gnome-terminal. :) And if you want to change the icon of your Launcher, just click on the default icon and find the image you wanrt09:02
gregorywsoooaaaooo so create a launcher sammy's way and type xterm for the command09:02
Velshteinsammy: perhaps it's not an exfat drive?09:02
sammyVelshtein: its possible its not exfat. if gparted doesn't knwo what type the partition is... then I don't know. gparted or disk utility should at least be able to recognize teh partitions and partitioning scheme.09:03
sammymaybe they're part of a logical volume group? honestly if gparted gives you no information on the type of partitions, you might need more information from the client. maybe a 3rd party tool could help. look into the emergency boot disk. it comes with tons and tons of tools for hard drive exploration, and I think its only a 100mb disk09:04
sammyI dont remember how gparted reports lvm volumes, I would think as such.09:05
Velshteinsammy: what REALLY interests me is that the drive prevents me from booting my Ubuntu partition from a cold boot09:05
gregorywsoooaaaooo does that work for you?09:06
oooaaaooogregoryws: yup i tried both and they both work09:06
Velshteinsammy: if I do a system reset, the drive disappears from my BIOS and I can boot properly, but if it's from a cold boot, the drive is there and I hang while booting09:06
sammyprobably because its being set up in the bios as the first drive to boot from, and the boot attempt fails09:06
armis71hmmm not sure about unity... anyone don't like it?09:06
oooaaaooogregoryws: thanks09:06
gregorywsoooaaaooo that's great :)09:06
Velshteinsammy: then it's found a way to override my BIOS settings, because the BIOS is set to go by default to my windows drive, which then directs it to my modified boot sequence (Win7 or Ubuntu)09:07
sammyid look into tools to verify the hardware integrity of the drive. and see if you could find something in the ultimate boot disk that can identify the partitions09:07
sammyultimate boot cd i think its called. tons of good stuff on there09:07
armis71i got an unused partition, it doesn't show in linux09:07
zarlinohi all, I'd like to add my commercial software to the ubuntu software center. I read this http://developer.ubuntu.com/publish/my-apps-packages/, but cannot figure out how exactly I should package my app. Any suggestions?09:09
ikoniazarlino: what part is not clear ?09:10
=== matt is now known as Guest49559
zarlinoikonia: I don't know and cannot find info on what a "source package" is09:10
zarlinoikonia: "source package format"09:10
ikoniazarlino: ok, they mean a debian package format, so a "source debian package" format that can be used to either build the package09:10
gregorywszarlino there is a dev channel09:11
ikoniazarlino: are you aware of debian package format ?09:11
zarlinoikonia: yes, i already created my .deb09:11
ikoniazarlino: does it comply with the other rules, eg: install to /opt/$package have the configs in ~/.$package etc09:12
zarlinoikonia: no, it is a plain .deb. I didn't create it for the Software Center09:12
zarlinoikonia: can you point me to docs that describe the "source package format"?09:13
ikoniazarlino: ok, so you need to make the deb to comply with those requirements listed on that page09:13
zarlinoikonia: I'd prefer to let the Software Center do packaging and prive this "source format"09:13
zarlinoprive => provide09:14
gregorywszarlino are you familiar with linux?09:14
ikoniazarlino: the source format contains things like the layout, so submit the debian source package format with the correct parameters to allow it to build in line with the requirements on this page09:14
zarlinogregoryws: yes09:14
=== Guest49559 is now known as caddoo
zarlinoikonia: ok, it is just that I cannot find on google anything that describes this "source format"09:15
sammyzarlino: a source debian package. as opposed to a binary one. you should look at the debian packaging docs.09:15
ikoniazarlino: it's basically a tarball, with the sources, the package, the patches, the description file09:15
ikoniazarlino: let me see if I can find a reference link09:15
sammyi wonder how many of the 1400 idlers in here are just bots scraping the hosts of new ubuntu installs to hack09:17
gregorywszarlino: I believe it is possible to have a .DEB package with only binary.  That reference even says that the source code isn't required09:17
sammygregoryws: it is, but they are trying to submit a package for inclusion in the official repositories. I belive they require a source package.09:17
zarlinoikonia: if you can change that page I'd suggest you link to some relevant docs, the world of debian packaging is quite obscure09:17
gregorywssammy: is that possible?09:17
moneo_Hey everyone. My second monitor won't appear in the monitor preferences window... Ubuntu 11.04 just won't detect it. Works OK in windows so the hardware is OK. Any ideas how I can get dual monitors working?09:17
moneo_I have 2 graphics cards, but both monitors are plugged into the primary one. One works, but the other isn't found09:18
ubottuThe packaging guide is at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/NewPackages for information on getting a package integrated into Ubuntu - Other developer resources are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment - See also !backports09:18
ikoniazarlino: ahhh check the first link there.09:18
ikoniazarlino: I'm trying to find a page that used to have a great breakdown09:18
zarlinoikonia: ok thanks will do09:19
sammythere's an entire official debian packaging manual, and the new mantainers guide.09:19
codehottercan I start a process and capture its pid, so I can kill it later?09:19
zarlinosammy: the point is I don't want to read everything about packaging. I just want to know the format required by the Ubuntu Software Center09:19
gregorywssammy: I mean can you hack a fresh install through an IRC client?09:20
Kingsywhich package do I need in order to get shockwave installed for firefox?09:21
Kingsybasically loads of websites are asking for activeX09:21
Kingsyforums are saying to install firefox on wine.. for shockwave.. no way that cant be the way09:22
sammygregoryws: I'm saying you sit in here, and as people join, you get the IPs of people who may not have properly secured their ubuntu installs, and hack them in other ways. not necessarily through IRC.09:23
sammyzarlino: was just trying to point you to docs that outlined what a debian source package is.09:24
Error404NotFoundi have a file: /etc/cron.d/test which contains http://pastebin.com/QjF2UJgd but i don't see it actually running, any ideas?09:24
sammyzarlino: you would technically be a 'new maintainer' of a debian package, so I thought that guide might be helpful.09:24
sammyKingsy: can you be a bit more specific? the website youre going to in firefox in ubuntu is saying you need to install activeX?09:25
jivjivI want to install GTK+ 3.0 through command line. what would be the appropriate apt-get install command?09:25
linuxuz3rhow do you get a full screen shot of ubuntu09:27
sammyjivjiv: you'd have to know what package you want to install. are you doing development? youre looking for libgtk-3- packages, probably libgtk-3-dev if you want to develop09:28
gregorywszarlino what's the app your trying to put through?09:29
sammylinuxuz3r: if youre running gnome I believe 'take screenshot' can be found in accessories09:29
sammylinuxuz3r: try browsing/searching for it as you would any other application.09:29
jivjivsammy : i did sudo apt-get install libgtk3.0-dev ... "couldn't find" ... so i did "sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev" .. http://pastebin.com/5RYnz7fN is the output09:30
sammyjivjiv: what version of ubuntu are you running?09:30
sammyI see libgtk-3-dev which apparently replaces libgtk-3.0-dev -- "sudo apt-cache search whatever" is your friend. you can also use packages.ubuntu.com if you can get there.09:32
jivjivsammy.. : cat /etc/issue gives me Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS .. it's a very old version but I need to work with this. I modified sources.list to include http://pastebin.com/NJ0guvCv09:32
jivjivsammy : sorry din read your message before pushing enter.. let me try that.09:33
sammyjivjiv: it may not be in lucid's repositories. you may need to use something more recent. but I advice against installing packages from such a newer version- you can run into serious libc problems.09:33
jivjivsammy : ok please suggest something09:34
sammyupgrading to a newer version? you can always try to use a recent enough version that contains libgtk-3-dev in it, which you could find by using packages.ubuntu.com09:35
jivjivsammy : I can't upgrade. Need to work with that constraint.09:35
sammyyou might also be able to build the libraries from their source packages, which is suggested when running a package from a different version of ubuntu09:36
jivjivyes this sounds like a better idea..09:36
jivjivBut i am not very familiar with how dependencies work.. gtk is dependent on lot of other libraries also.. getting them manually may be a little difficult09:36
sammylook into package pining. theres an ubuntu doc for it. it should walk you through adding a newer repository (which youve already done, but you may need newer ones) and installing only the few packages youll ned from the newer version.09:37
sammythe docs have instructions on how to do this for firefox, but its the same for any package. what you want to avoid is using the binary package for the libraries - theyre meant to be used with the rest of their version of ubuntu.09:37
jivjivit will be great if you can ping me the link.. actually I am doing this for firefox... Building it in an older versionof linux09:38
=== rchavik is now known as lamebot
sammyi dont know the link off hand, youre looking for ubuntu documentation on 'apt pining' which happens to walk you through building from source as well. you can use links or lynx as a browser from the command line.09:39
jivjivsammy : thanks... will look for it..09:40
liran I removed apache2 package with apt-get remove apache2 and I removed the dir from /etc - how I can re-install it ?09:40
cutiyari didnt remeber and i puted usb flasj where the ubuntu 11.10 alpha on it , so now my 11.4 now ask for upgrades because first i clicked upgrade09:40
cutiyari want to stop it till the official 11.10 is coming09:41
sammyliran: if you want to make sure you remove any configuration files, I'd suggest using "apt-get purge apache2" -- since youve already removed it, id suggest using 'apt-get install apache2' then purging, then installing again.09:41
liransammy: I did it, still not creating new apache2 dir under etc :(09:42
gregorywszarlino: What is the app you're trying to publish?09:43
cutiyarwhat to do ?09:44
liran I removed apache2 package with apt-get remove apache2 and I removed the dir from /etc - how I can re-install it ?09:44
sammyliran: installing apache2 should create the apache2 directory. did you try purging?09:44
caddoousing spotify on latest ubuntu, is there any way i can turn the bass up09:45
liransammy: yes I tried, it didnt09:45
sammycutiyar: short of putting a hold on every package currently installed, or disabling the update-manager, I think ubuntu will always tell you about available upgrades, probably because they could be security upgrades.09:46
Starminncutiyar: Open Update Manager, go to Settings...09:46
sammyliran: if there is no directory called /etc/apache2 when you install apache2, i don't know why it wouldn't create the directory. does 'apt-get install apache2' not report any errors?09:47
Starminncutiyar: Then go to the Updates tab and choose (about halfway down) which you like09:47
cutiyarsammy, i know about updates but its upgrades from 11.4 its not released its happen when i putted usb disk with 11.10 alpha release09:47
sammycaddoo: google pulseaudio equalizer. you might have to add a ppa to install the package.09:48
liransammy: it doesnt, and also not starting apache since files are missing09:48
cutiyarStarminn, i dont understand09:48
sammycutiyar: check /etc/apt/sources.list -- starminn is showing you to a gui that manages that file, but you may have repositories in there listed for oneric, not natty, which is 11.409:48
* Starminn nods yes, sammy read my mind.09:49
cutiyarsammy, in source.list all are changed to oneiric its my problem09:49
gregorywscutiyar maybe he meant synaptic?09:50
sammyliran: never delete files on an ubuntu install you didn't create yourself :P I cant imagine why apt-get install wont create the apache2 directory and isn't giving you an error when it tries. would you please try installing it, purging it, and installing it again? make sure there's no errors reported?09:50
cutiyargregoryws, sammy Starminn , i want my ubuntu be same with yours if have 11.409:51
sammycutiyar: you need to change every instance of oneric to natty and update your package information. then only the versions available in 11.4 will be available to upgrade to. but if you started the upgrade process and stopped it somewhere along the way, it should have changed everything back to natty for you, if you stopped the upgrade cleanly, that is09:51
sammyotherwise you may be too far gone to go back to natty cleanly. I'm not sure exactly what happened when you put the alpha usb key in and clicked upgrade09:51
cutiyarsammy, nothing upgraded was just in calculating changes09:52
cutiyarsammy, when i canceled it09:52
sammycutiyar: ah. check in /etc/apt/ and see if it made a backup copy of your sources.list09:52
gregorywscutiyar what version do you have now?09:52
=== Vladislas is now known as zay
cutiyargregoryws, 11.409:53
sammycutiyar: it may have also made backups in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ as well. you should be able to use those backups, and update your package information.09:53
sammyI was under the impression it restored those backups when the upgrade was cancelled. I could be wrong.09:53
sh00pI know /usr/local/lib/ is in ld's path... does directories like: /usr/local/lib/myprogram/ also end up in the library path?09:54
cutiyarsammy, there source.list.save and sources.list.d folder and sources.list.distUpgrade file09:54
sammythe .distUpgrade files are the backup the upgrade program made. those are the ones you want to be using.09:54
cutiyarsammy, so what should i do now?09:54
vltsammy: I already tried to run it from terminal but it seems to detach. Once the program is running I get my shell prompt again.09:55

beachbrakeCan anyone help me out with my query?10:10
almoxarifebeachbrake: safe? no10:10
szymon_gbut when i re-lunch cfdisk i got my first partition /sda1/ in ext2, but second big one- in proper raid autodetect type10:10
jonathondai: Yes10:11
szymon_gbecause i create 2 of them - one small for /boot, another big for lvm10:11
liransammy: fixed this issue, removed any apache2 related packages and than re-install them all10:11
jonathondai: it'll be in root/media/10:11
beachbrakealmoxarife, you mean it is giving the errors experienced by that blogger?10:11
sammyliran: good idea. i wouldn't have thought of that.10:11
beachbrakealmoxarife, So what is the safest way to try Gnome 3. I dont want to take a backup or use a different partition.10:12
almoxarifebeachbrake: I mean that you will need to add certain ppa's and at some point you will find yourself with broken dependencies10:12
beachbrakeSomeone suggested I use Fedora or Arch.10:12
sammybeachbrake: I'd wait a few months and use 11.1010:12
daijonathon: I open terminal, type "ls" and Media isn't part of it, how am I supposed to get to it?10:13

tomodachioverdub: youre welcome. tptest though is both a server and a client. You can download and install them both for free. The isp:s in my country (sweden) often have a tptest server so that one can try out the connection. it tests a lot of things both tcp/udp and responsetime etc10:17
jonathonSorry bout that10:17

jonathondai: you could type straight in cd /root/media/10:29
=== Squarepy_ is now known as Squarepy
ikoniawhy is anything being put in /root ?10:29
jonathonikonia: Accessing partitions, gotta use root10:29
jonathonthrough the terminal anyways10:29

ikoniajonathon: why do you "have" to use root?10:29
ikoniajonathon: partitions from external devices are in /media normally10:30
ikoniawhy are you not using /media10:30
daijonathon: typing cd /root/Media/ gives me "Permission Denied"  sudo cd /root/Media/ doesn't work :P10:30
jonathoniokonia, /media is in /root10:30
jonathondai, sudo su first, then cd /root/media10:30

gregorywsjonathon: sd cards are actually less safe than usb sticks.  Bought a Gateway 2 years ago. Good price, but it's reader eats sd cards.  An sd card is often just a kind of IC chip that takes a loooong time to forget what it's told.  Just saying :)10:34

daijonathon: hey! i was wondering, is it possible to rename the partition drives? I have an ntfs drive i share with my windows 7 os and it's named '241 GB Filesystem' can I change that?10:34
gregorywslol :)10:34
jonathondai: Not sure, I've not figured it out yet10:34
daijonathon: what about changing the name of the drive number, the name after /Media/10:35
jonathongregoryws, So what would you recommend if I only need say 32 megs of important information stored10:35
jonathondai: Same, I'm not sure about that either10:35
daijonathon: aww10:36
jonathondai: I wanna find out because it give it a ridiculous number10:36
ikoniajonathon: /media is not in root10:36
ikoniajonathon: media is in the root files sytem of "/" not "/root"10:36
cutiyarwhy i cant XBMC ??10:36
gregorywsjonathon: A good quality burnable cd x2.  If security is important you can use an encrypted archive.10:36
jonathonikonia: Same difference10:36
ikoniajonathon: no - it's not10:37
daijonathon: there's a rename option when you right click the drive but renaming it gives you "The item could not be renamed" error10:37
jonathondai: Yea10:37
ikoniajonathon: /root is the home directory of the root user, which under the ubuntu model is locked and unusable10:37
ikoniajonathon: / is the root file ssytem of the operating system10:37
ikoniajonathon: they are VERY different10:37
zpwwho can tell me how to use the ir10:37
jonathongregoryws, but see, I keep a password file, which I have to change once in a while, so cd's won't quite cut it10:38

llutzpaulus68: var=$( find /media/backup1/backups -type f -exec ls -s {} \; | sort -n | tail -n 1)10:39
paulus68llutz: then the second command would be mv $var /media/home/user right?10:40
ikoniajonathon: it makes a massive difference hence why I'm trying to get a definition10:41
gregorywsjonathon: The cd's would be an archive against the failure of your day to day; I prefer bi-annual.  'Course my Password archive is an encrypted text file.10:41
llutzpaulus68: you'd have to strip the size from filename10:41
overdubpaulus68, why not just do find /media/backup1/backups -type f -exec ls -s {} \; | sort -n | tail -n 1 > /mydir/mydir10:41
jonathongregoryws: Well as I said, not too worried about it for now, so my sd card will do for now :)10:42

Horst123llutz: damn, your right... Can't I use the hostname for that?10:46
llutzHorst123: you can't10:46
gregorywsjonathon: everything has its failure point, you burn a good-quality 65 cent optical disc and stick it in a $200 fire-resistant safe.  Still less failure chance than all those little semiconductor joints in a hard drive or sd card..10:47
Horst123There should be a possibility to alias one hostname with another, or?10:47

jonathonHello, Friend ^^10:49
gregorywsjonathon: Nah. Funny, I've only had 1 hard rive failure and 2 flash-ram failures in over 30 years personally.  But I've seen LOTS of other people crying over lost jpegs and such. lol10:49
llutzHorst123: setup a dns, create a CNAME  for the host. /etc/hosts cannot create aliase without IP  (afaik)10:49
Kartagiswhy does libreoffice install when I attempt to install openoffice.org?10:50
jonathongregoryws: Thanfully I've had no failures yet, Only time I lose stuff is because I mess it up somehow10:50
Parsindwhat is a CNAME?10:50
llutzParsind: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNAME_record10:50
Horst123llutz, I think the easiest would be to look up the ip address manually and type it once and give another alias in /etc/hosts. I'm hoping they won't change their IP10:51
vltszymon_g: What exactly did you do? Run cfdisk, press “t”, “fd”, “W” …?10:52
Parsindim way over my head here but doesnt IPV6 makes dns redundant?10:53
=== zpw is now known as xinyi
szymon_gvlt, right. i did it. it saved only second partition (the big one). the first one was, in fact saved as ext210:53
jonathonParsind, Not exactly10:53
szymon_gi.e. it displayed 'raid autodetect', but after writing and exiting cfdisk, and launching it again, it detected this one as ext210:54
* BiKER-JENS just falled in love with htop10:54
gregorywsAnybody out there set up a lot of file shares?  I need a good suggestion how to handle sharing sensitive files over my network. SAMBA did not work very well for me at all.  20+ hours down the tubes.10:54
jonathonDNS applies a name to an IP, ergo it should assign ones to IPV6 just as it does IPV410:54
llutzParsind: if you like to fiddle with ipv6-addresses instead of hostnames, sure10:54
jonathongregoryws, Like how many files?10:54
ikoniagregoryws: you need to give us specific requirements and explain what didn't work for you with samba10:55
Parsindist ipv6 built to make its addresses known to other machines on the network10:55
Horst123Is there a possibility to tell ssh, that I always want to login with a specific username to a certain host?10:55
vltszymon_g: Is there an ext2 fs on that partition?10:55
ikoniaHorst123: ssh -l username host or ssh username@host10:56
vltszymon_g: If yes, that’s why cfdisk shows it.10:56
llutzParsind: addresses aren't hostnames10:56
Horst123ikonia: I dont want to type the username all time10:56
szymon_gdisk was empty10:56
jonathongregoryws, you could try ftp, That's what I use generally to share files between PC's10:56
Horst123ikonia: so ssh should remember that10:56
ikoniaHorst123: it you don't type a username it will default to your current username10:56

pentarexguys why I cant see setenv.sh file in my tomcat/bin directory ?10:56
ikoniaponbiki: how did you install tomcat10:57
ikoniapentarex: how did you install tomcat10:57
jonathonikonia, he said over his home network, security shouldn't be too big an issue, and you can put a pass on FTP10:57
pentarexikonia: it was with the server10:57
xauthHorst123: ssh_config(5)10:57
szymon_gvlt: i created 2 partitions: 1 small 130mb, one big 970gb /for lvm/. the big one was properly labelled as raid autodetect, the small one wasn't- after restarting cfdisk cfdisk showed it as ext2 /despite earlier, before writing changes to disks, it recognised it properly/10:57
pentarexfrom the installation there was a checkbox what i want to install10:57
llutzHorst123: add a "User" entry to your ~/.ssh/config for that host10:57
ikoniajonathon: he said nothing about a home network and he said sensative files10:58
vltszymon_g: What does "hd -v /dev/sda1 | head" look like?10:58
ikoniapentarex: "with the server" ? what server, have you bought a server from a provider ?10:58
jonathonikonia, he says right in his post "Send files over MY Network10:58
ikoniajonathon: that doesn't mean a home network10:58
ikoniajonathon: and he also said sensative files10:58
AdvoWorkif ive ssh'd into a machine before, accepted the key etc, then have setup a new machine with the same ip, and have tried to connect, it wont allow me due to it being different, it says: Add correct host key in /home/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.  but how?10:59
ikoniaAdvoWork: remove the key from the known hosts10:59
pentarexikonia: when I was installing ubuntu 10.04 LTS server edition there was a checkbox with what do you want to install and tomcat6 was in there for choice. I click it and tomcat6 was instaleld10:59
jonathonFTP Is still fine, I highly doubt he is going to be under an attack during the transfer, and FTP isn't insecure if you set it up right10:59
ikoniaAdvoWork: or disable host checking10:59
ikoniajonathon: ftp is totally clear text password and transmission,11:00
gregorywsikonia: I don't know why SAMBA didn't work.  I had it working over a week ago.  I tried it yesterday and there's a strange issue.  I need something reliable and I don't see the Ubuntu 11.04 flavor of samba as worth the hours of unsuccessfull troubleshooting.11:00
jonathonNot if you enable encryption11:00
ikoniajonathon: yes, it is still clear11:00
szymon_gvlt, http://www.wklej.org/id/603448/ but its not a problem anymore :) i created partitions in parted program, than i set their type in cfdisk. works fine :)11:00
ikoniagregoryws: ok - so what type of clients are using this11:00
jonathonIkonia, Well for all your dismissing of FTP< You've yet to offer up any suggestions11:00
ikoniajonathon: because I'm not rushing in with silly comments before understanding the requirements11:01
gregorywsEasy guys.11:01
ikoniagregoryws: tell us more about the requirements, what are the clients ?11:01
jonathonWell let's just see where this goes then...11:01
AdvoWorkikonia, cheers, done11:02
gregorywsikonia, jonathon: I have a home LAN with UBUNTU machines.  I'm looking to segregate my really sensitive files ( password logs, etc.) from my less sensitive: software projects, and family pictures.  I'm hoping to have static shares that auto mount when there available.11:03
janisozaurhello, I'm using 11.10 and I have a problem of totem (the movie player) being default handler of open-the-folder, i.e. when I click "show file in directory", the totem opens. how do I change it?11:04
jonathonikonia, SEE HA, FTP Would be perfect for that11:04
Obituary37anybody please know why i cannot install new ubuntu? my laptop gets hot and unplugged!!11:04
ikoniajonathon: you still don't know that11:04
pentarexikonia: did you respond mate because pidgin drops me and I lost contact11:04
jonathonikonia, I do know that11:04
ikoniajonathon: and the difference between finding out inforamtion before recommnding stuff and blindly jumping in is the key, not the actual solution11:04
ikoniapentarex: sorry I did, I'll change my response though due to a little thought, what is leading you to believe there should be a setenv.sh file there ?11:05
jonathonikonia, No, You offer a suggestion, let them determine if that works, if not, work towards a new one11:05
jonathonIn this case, I was right, he can use FTP Just fine11:05
ikoniajonathon: not if they actually don't understand the implications of what you're saying, I'm just requesting you apply thought to what you recommend11:05
ikoniagregoryws: are you comfortable transmitting the data clear text and passwords clear text across your home network ?11:06
jonathongregoryws, Clear text is fine for most, The ones with more sensitive information you can encrypt yourself beforehand11:07
jonathonWhich would be the best thing to do regardless11:07
adam_i made a booboo :( i created a home directory in cmd line called "steve" with comas included now when i 'sudo rm -R /home/"steve"' it says the file deosnt exist :(11:07
ikoniathe username and passwords are still sent in clear text11:07
ikoniaif gregoryws you are comfortable with that, then a lot of options are available to you11:07
adam_i can see it with ls but cant delete it :(11:07
gregorywsikonia: ikonia jonathon: I think I could clear text it at home.  My wireless is encrypted with a very long key...11:08
jonathonGregoryws, WPA2 I assume?11:08
ikoniagregoryws: what OS is the client running ?11:08
fritschadam_: easiest way to to do is graphically: gksudo nautilus11:09
jonathonikonia, what does it matter?11:09
fritschadam_: this runs nautilus as super user11:09
jonathonikonia, FTP can run on any client11:09
fritschadam_: select the directory and remove it11:09
ikoniajonathon: because the client will show options11:09
gregorywsikonia jonathon: preshared tkip wpa11:09
adam_fritsch: i dont have a gui set up :( unless i try a live cd11:09
fritschadam_: so you have to escape11:09
[poisonborz]hola, I'm trying to customize the gnome panel clock in 10.04, but no tutorial helped.. I can't find the folder in gconf-editor: there is no "clock_screenX" in /apps/panel/applets, just a "default setup", where changes have no effect.11:09
fritschadam_: the dir is called "steve"' with the " and '?11:09
ikoniajonathon: he doesn't have to use FTP - he may find it easiier to use network shares, or ftp, or http or rsync or whatever, finding out the client will help determian options for him11:09
jonathonikonia, See that's your problem here, You're trying to overcomplicate this11:09
jonathongregoryws, Awesome :D11:09
ikoniajonathon: no, I'm trying to find a solution that is best for him, rather then blindly ram a solution down someones through11:10
jonathonikonia, Overcomplication plain and simple <.<11:10
fritschadam_: rm -rf \"steve\"\' will delete a dir calle "steve"' with " in front and "' behind11:10
ikoniajonathon: no, understanding the users request and guiding11:10
jonathonikonia, which is what I did but faster, He wants to transfer files, plain text is fine, Ans ftp take slike 10 minutes at most to set up, so it's simple, fast, and does what he needs11:11
gregorywsjonatho ikonia: Please, you are awesome for just trying to help:) I'll research before I implement.  Just looking for a good general direction is all.11:11
ikoniajonathon: I have no issue with you suggesting ftp, I am requesting you think about the users needs not what you want him to use11:12
ikoniagregoryws: what OS is the client running ?11:12
jonathongregoryws, I RECOMMEND checking out FTP, for it's simplicity, but feel free to research 500 other alternitives that ikonia would like to mnention after 4 hours of detail discussion11:13
gregorywsikonia:  ubuntu is the only OS I need for my sensitive stuff:)11:13
ikoniagregoryws: even the client ?11:14
gregorywsikonia: I might try my android phone, but I'm leary of it's security so it's just Ubuntu for now.11:14

Kartagiswhy does libreoffice install when I attempt to install openoffice.org?11:57
jribKartagis: because libreoffice has replaced openoffice11:57
icerootKartagis: there is no openoffice anymore in ubuntu/debian11:58
ActionParsnip!info openoffice.org11:58

icerootiuytfr: imo there was the tool "talk" or "chat"11:58
ActionParsnipit is still in the repos, even in oneiric11:58
jribActionParsnip: did you see the package descriptions?11:58
Kartagisthat's why I'm asking11:58
icerootActionParsnip: its not openoffice.org11:58
icerootActionParsnip: inside the packqage11:58
jribKartagis: read the package description of what you are installing11:59
ActionParsnipiceroot: then its named badly and should be sorted11:59

cantonichey guys. i am quite new to linux. i have opened a manuel with the "man" command, but how to close the man again?12:21
Picicantonic: q12:22
BluesKajcantonic, the Q12:22
cantonicthank you very much guys. q worked :)12:23
cantonici am starting with ubuntu server (don't want a gui)12:23
cantonicand i will use it for installing several virtual machines on it. hope it is not toooo complicated12:23
NotAnonymoussounds painful :p12:23
NotAnonymouswhy not use GUI? GUI can be handy12:24
NotAnonymousand once you have setup your server just disable the GUI12:24
cantonicNotAnonymous: nah, i already have succesfully installed ubuntu server. now i am trying to build the VMs but i get an error each time when starting the vm. sudo virt-viewer vm1 brings a "cannot open display" error12:25
cantonicNotAnonymous: I tried that. i installed a gui (is it called gnom?) but i could not deactivate it again...12:25
NotAnonymoussure you can.. you just have to uninstall it once you're done12:26
NotAnonymousif you hit CTRL+ALT+F1 you go from GUI to terminal directly12:26
NotAnonymousand from there you can kill/uninstall all the GUIs12:27
cantonicNotAnonymous: which gui should i use on an ubuntu server?12:27
NotAnonymousyou can use any you want.. Gnome works fine12:28
th0rcantonic: something lightweight...lxde might be a good choice12:28
cantonicNotAnonymous: nah, Gnome is too heavy for a server12:28
cantonicth0r: thank you. i will try this one12:29
NotAnonymouswell if you are going to use GUI temporarily then lightweight is not a big issue :)12:29
th0rcantonic: lxde or maybe xfce...I would suggest trying lxde first12:29
cantonicNotAnonymous: I have to run several virtual machines on that pc and a gui like gnome could vanish a lot of my system ressources… that's what i fear12:30
jribcantonic: why even install one then...12:30
th0rcantonic: and you might look into disabling X and lxde instead of uninstalling them. Or even let them run but don't log into the gui...that way it is there if you want it.12:30
cantonicjrib: because i try to install VMs but fail :(12:30
jribcantonic: don't use gui tools to do so?12:31
th0rjrib: there are times when there is a gui app that does something just so much easier12:31
cantonicth0r: what is X?12:31
cantonicjrib: yeah, i try to install using shell but get errors :(12:31
th0rcantonic: X is the underlying framework that makes gui environments work12:31
jribcantonic: installing gui would not affect that then12:31
cantonicjrib: maybe… the error message i get when starting windows 7 virtual machine is "cannot open display"12:32
cantonicsounds like it cannot run gui12:32
NotAnonymousinstalling Gnome, xfce etc. will install X automatically12:32
cantonici wanted to connect using vnc...12:32
jribcantonic: anyway installing a gui will not really have any effect.  You don't even need to uninstall it, just don't start it once you are done12:32
cantonicbut dunno how12:32
jribcantonic: you need a gui for vnc12:33
* tMH- is gone. nsf12:33
jrib!away > tMH-12:33
ubottutMH-, please see my private message12:33
cantonicjrib: on a previous installation of ubuntu server i installed gnome and could not exit it again as it loaded automatically12:33
jribcantonic: just add "text" to your kernel line12:33
th0rcantonic: if you want to run vnc you won't be disabling it anyway...it has to be running12:34
cantonicjrib: sorry, don't understand that :(12:34
=== root is now known as Guest2679
cantonicwhat i understood is: "i need a gui to connec to a vm via vnc"12:35
jribcantonic: in /etc/default/grub you would add " text" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT12:35
jribcantonic: yes, that's true.  If at some point you no longer want to the gui to start automatically, then you can do what I said in /etc/default/grub12:35
cantonicah nice! i see! so grub controls which apps to start on system boot?12:36
=== bm is now known as Guest26894
jribcantonic: no, but the gdm init script checks if you used "text" in your kernel line12:37
=== Robert_ is now known as Guest24387
ActionParsnipcantonic: you can also tell kernel moudules to not load too12:37
NotAnonymouspersonally I would just uninstall the gnome. Much faster than digging into config files and grub12:37
cantonicNotAnonymous: yeah, but if you need it you would have to install it again...12:38
ActionParsnipNotAnonymous: hardly, plus it's more destructive to remove all the packages12:38
jribcantonic: if you need to start it, you can just do « sudo service gdm start » after the machine boots12:38
cantonicso ok. i have no gui so i cannot open the virtual machine. i understand that. but i should be able connecting from another computer to the VM using VNC, right?12:38
NotAnonymoushow can uninstalling be destructive? oO12:39
jribcantonic: right12:39
cantonicjrib: but it does not connect. i see that the vm is running when typing in "virsh -c qemu:///system list"12:39
cantonicunfortunately it doesn't show the VNC-Port12:39
ActionParsnipNotAnonymous: its removes the files, if you just add the boot option, the files are still present but are not used, the change can be rolled back easily. Uninstalling all the packages requires reinstallation of packages. Its simply not necessary12:40
PanArturcantonic: if you disconnect your monitor cable the X won't start.12:40
oratedHello! I've few backup files in tar.bz2 format in desktop. I can connect/transfer files from desktop to laptop with ssh/scp. Since I'm out of space, is it possible that I uncompress  and also delete the files uncompressed initially?12:40
jriborated: you could uncompress during the transfer, would that work?12:40
oratedjrib: I'd like to do that!12:41
ActionParsniporated: do you have excess kernels? You can remove those to free up space12:41
jriborated: ok, I'm pretty sure you can but I don't recall how atm :)12:41
NotAnonymousActionParsnip oh ok. I thought you meant it was going to break the system or sth somehow12:41
oratedjrib: duh12:41
oratedActionParsnip: nope12:41
jriborated: that's code for "google with me"12:41
ActionParsnipNotAnonymous: it wont break it per se, it just removes data when you can just tell the OS to not use it12:42

delinquentmecould anyone make a suggestion as to what channel would be good to ask questions on floating point math in? .. perhaps a general CS chat room?12:42

ActionParsniporated: could mount the sshfs and copy it like a regular file copy12:42
dell_ActionParsni_ : maverick12:43
dell_ ActionParsnip_ : maverick12:44
jriborated: yeah just use ssh to cat the tar.bz2 to the server and pipe that output to "tar xvf -".  That should work.  Try with a small file to test.  ActionParsnip has a good suggestion too.12:44

iuytfrno i don't like that one PanArtur12:50

iuytfrthat command works on windows what you don't work on linux ?12:51

norbert79Good day. Have an interesting question for you all: Is it anyhow possible limiting .fonts.conf for one application, when started? I would like to configure only one application making autohints disabled for it, yet .fonts.conf applies settings session-wide. Now I know some shell scripts might do some workaround, but I am merely looking for something long term, without using additional shell scripts.12:54
KamZouhere an example of my DHCP & DDNS problem : http://pastebin.com/7wbDys0r12:54
PanArturiuytfr: if you write this command to your .bashrc alias will be created autotaticly after login12:54
iuytfrActionParsnip: you mean i have to do installation on each pc ?12:55
ActionParsniptmus: http://www.ubuntu.com/support/training12:55
iridiumnorbert79, reason to do that? (I'm asking because is unlikely)12:55
ActionParsnipiuytfr: not sure, just found it12:55
norbert79iridium: Very basic issue: Hate the automatic font-hinting in Wine. Since changing that has been removed since 1.2, Wine relies on Xft. Now if I apply .fonts.conf, it gets applied session-wide... Real ugly.12:56
iridiumI will answer you in pm12:56
norbert79iridium: Cheers12:57
tmusActionParsnip, thanks...12:57
KamZouanyone good at dhcp & ddns questions ?12:57
ActionParsnipnorbert79: have you asked in #winehq too12:57
norbert79ActionParsnip: Well, question isn't really based on Wine, could be any application12:58

norbert79ActionParsnip: No12:58
norbert79ActionParsnip: Basically I was merely looking for a methodf controlling font hinting appl,ication based12:59
norbert79ActionParsnip: ANY application12:59
ActionParsnipnorbert79: ah, I see. You just mentioned wine and it seemed to relate purely to that12:59
norbert79ActionParsnip: I see. No, wasn't really the goal12:59

sveinseActionParsnip: The kernel log sais that it's found the NIC, configures it (PCI wise). The two last messages are eth0: link is not ready and PME# enabled. But I should be able to reach eth0 using ethtool even if there is no link13:07

twoten210I had natty running, installed Studio 11.04 on top, seemed to go fine, but after first reboot I get a blank screen, no grub menu, no bootup14:33
PanArturtwoten210: take a look at this http://goo.gl/TKms section GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 - but maybe you gave installed grub on your usb stick or somewhere else?14:33
twoten210I have a Studio 10.10 cd here, I think I'll install that, then do the upgrade to 11.04 through the update manager14:34
g0rsGirly-Girl: it worked. Its in system tray now . Thanks14:34
twoten210no, I actually re-installed grub onto sda and I can see the files in mc14:34
Girly-Girlg0rs: You're welcome14:34
ubuntu_mamo kupa14:35
zelozelostwoten210, oh no. ok what u need to do is boot live cd, recover any files needed to be saved by mounting the fs's and putting them on a diff partition/backup media, then re-install. what happened was the settings durring the upgrade got messed up, b4 reboot you was still in the old system, after when it tried to boot the new stuff the settings are'nt right, next time only upgrade dist-dist of the same (ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10)14:36
zelozelosdont upgrade to a diff flavor, instead always do a full install, upgrades are prone to breakage14:36
twoten210now that makes sense, in order to save my apps in /opt I didn't reformat the root partition, that sounds like the problem14:37
PanArturtwoten210: is ubuntu your only system on this pc?14:38
twoten210yes, maybe I should put vector linux on a small partition, that thing always works14:38
antihoaxrealtime kernel tests14:39
zelozelostwoten210, a little suggestion, always keep another partition on the drive for backing up, most of the time reinstalling os's isnt a big deal for the hd, but that way if somehting goes wrong they're alrady saved14:39
zelozelosthats exactly what im trying too get going now, cept i keep forgetting to delete files from ubuntu's parttion when i move to the go-between partiton14:40
PanArturtwoten210: so could you edit your /boot/grub/grub.cfg and check is GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT phrase is there14:40
twoten210mind-reader, that's just where I'm headed!14:41

mo12i have a hidden folder named .fr-Blo2lL on the desktop(10.04), i have no idea how it got there, what are the chances that my computer has been hacked?16:18
theadminmajdekalel: Just ask it16:18
majdekaleli have a group in facebook when someone post anything or make any comment its just deleted directly !!!16:19
theadminmo12: Unlikely. Examine the contents of that folder.16:19
noisewaterphdcyclist_2: are you using a machine that has a hardware button for enabling/disabling the wireless? Perhaps you accidentally hit it if so.16:19
theadminmajdekalel: That's NOT an Ubuntu question.16:19
majdekalelok man can you help about that ?16:19
mo12theadmin: it is empty16:19
theadminmo12: Just remove it. Probably a temporary folder generated by some software.16:19
ubottuPlease 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. :-)16:20

donrusseyecandy basically16:24
cyclist_2noisewaterphd: I use a HP G70-120EA; the only button for the wireless connection is one next to the switch on/off and it does not switches the wireless per se - it only informative; the PC shows a blue light on it, which indicates that the adaptor is recognized [I assume...], but I cannot get it to receive any signal [and my modem/router is right next to it]16:24
melvincvIs the official bitorrent GUI version available yet?16:24

noisewaterphdcyclist_2: dont know about that particular model, but on most HP's that little blue light you are talking about actually is a button. Blue is enabled, if you touch it it will turn amber and be disabled, or vice cersa.16:26

w30cdcdabba, and if it blows up I am out $24 and not $600 + for a computer, well maybe an extension cord also.16:30

ActionParsnipmelvincv: you set zero up and download, doesn't use and internet16:31
SpiderFredhi I have general question, I am currently using rtorrent is it possible to schedule downloading by time? I mean throttle to 1kb per sek from 2pn to 5 pm and go full the rest of time?16:32
ActionParsnipThe_Phoenix: then install xfce4  and you will get a minimal XFCE desktop, youo should also install lightdm or slim for a login screen16:32
donrussyeah but its dated. I have an epic from Sammy right now. I love my Samsung but I can't take sprint anymore.16:32
noisewaterphdThe_Phoenix: XFCE isnt large enough that you should be waiting long enough to start wondering how big it is. Not with a decent connection anyway16:33
ActionParsnipdonruss: HTC ChaCha  then16:33
The_PhoenixI'm on a 512kbps which is the slowest *broadband*.16:33

kay_00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation N10 Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)) ?16:34
melvincvActionParsnip: You mean the temporary speed limit section? Not exactly a scheduler though... I thought it's meant to reduce bandwidth.16:34
ActionParsnipmelvincv: it can be however you want. If you set ZERO up and down, it won't use any speed, then set the temporary speed between 1am to 8am to be unlimited.16:35

rymate1234I'm using xubuntu 11.0416:43
alaingdattashantih: i'm running ubuntu server edition and installing coldfusion and it asked me if i had open office so it could use it to make pdfs16:43
The_Phoenixnoisewaterphd: I was installing via PXE installer for 11.04 in a system with no GUI. My router is still being strained. So, I know the download is still running.16:43
theadmindonruss: I don't :P I just sit in this channel cause I'm bored16:43
wlightningis there a place to go for questions about Ubuntu beta? (mostly just trying to figure out which component to report a bug against)16:43
alaingwhy has open office been renamed?16:43
noisewaterphdThe_Phoenix: sudo apt-get install xfce4 tells me 93.4 MB of additional disk space will be used. I made a pretty good guess, should be playing on the price is right today! Oh, no wait, I went over, cant go over on that show right?16:43
dattashantihalaing: what version of ubuntu server are you running16:43
theadminalaing: It wasn't renamed, it was forked.16:43
cyclist_2theadmin, noisewaterphd: I am back, having re-started the system; 'something' changed; another 'lshw' informs me now that the wireless network is 'unclaimed' instead of 'disabled', as before; do you have any ideas from here? theadmin: could you post those commands for the wlan0 again, please? I forgot to note them down before I began to reboot16:44
alaingdattashantih: 11.0416:44
theadmincyclist_2: "sudo ip link set wlan0 up", but that's only if the network is unencrypted or encryption has already been configured.16:44
donrusstheadmin. lol16:44
noisewaterphdThe_Phoenix: I do already have gnome and unity installed though, which may have made my system need a lot less dependencies16:44
donrusswhat's your Choice16:45
theadmindonruss: Arch.16:45
alaingtheadmin: i dont think coldfusion 9 is going to like a fork16:45
The_Phoenixnoisewaterphd: Thanks. Perhaps you should buy a lottery after all. Thanks. Am installing on a bare bone system. Perhaps the dependencies arte higher. I will give it another 2 hours.16:45
theadminalaing: Most OpenOffice plugins still work if that's what that is16:45
noisewaterphdcyclist_2: what desktop are you using. just try using the auto connect if you can16:45
noisewaterphdThe_Phoenix: I assume you used apt-get to install? Just scroll back up and see how much it said it needs to download16:46
alaingtheadmin: i'm not quiet sure i installed coldfusion 9 on windows and it never gave me the option so I was supprized to see the options but I would like to use them16:46
ShattersSo I have installed Ubuntu 10 lucid onto a USB to run persistent.  When it logs into the default account, I want to set a password but can't from "users and groups" because I don't know the 'current password'. any way to set a password for default account?16:47
noisewaterphdThe_Phoenix: that will be the only way to know, as it will vary from system to system based on dependencies16:47
Shattersit did however allow me to change the accounts name16:47
The_Phoenixnoisewaterphd: Nope, I would have known if I had used apt-get.16:48
theadminShatters: Reboot into the recovery mode, and from there on, "passwd USERNAME" (where USERNAME is the name of your user)16:48
ActionParsnipShatters: what is the output of:   whoami16:49
noisewaterphdThe_Phoenix: if you havent done much else on the network with that machine today, you could use something like top to determine roughly how much it has downloaded so far16:49
Shattersit says "ubuntu"16:49
ActionParsnipShatters: run:  sudo passwd ubuntu     and you can set the password16:49
noisewaterphdShatters: hey sorry, this isnt really help, just curious how you set up an account without a password in the first place. I wasnt aware you could even do that16:50
The_Phoenixnoisewaterphd: Am out of options. Even my router has been running for a while. I will give it some time.16:50
ActionParsnipnoisewaterphd: it can cause issues as far as I am aware, plug it significantly reduces security16:50
Shatterswhen running it from usb I was given option at boot for persistent vs live etc and after selecting persistent, it automatically loaded to desktop16:51
noisewaterphdActionParsnip: will he be able to do that without knowing, or actually having the password in this case?16:51
Layke2What's a hacky way of having a PHP script calling every 15 seconds using a cron.16:51
Layke2I don't know any shell script at all, so I am not sure how I could do a sleep(15) wget http://address.com four times to make it work as expected.16:52
ActionParsnipnoisewaterphd: you'd have to do it yourself, the liveCD has no password set for the  ubuntu account, but you can set one16:52
noisewaterphdShatters: follow ActionParsnip advice and see what happens. If that doesn't work try typing just passwd at the terminal as the account you are trying to update16:52
Shattersgreat, think I got it fixed then. Hmm. ActrionParsnip, when I boot next time, will it ask me for password instead of just logging in?16:53
noisewaterphdActionParsnip: ok, never done that, learn something everyday16:53
theadminLayke2: Eh... I think this would work: while true ; do sleep 15 ; for i in {1..4} do wget http://example.org ; done ; done16:53
theadminOh, missed a semicolon16:54
ActionParsnipnoisewaterphd: me neither, its really bad practise to have blank passwords for anything ever16:54
humehi...anyone got advice on how I make everything (not just text) look smaller on my screen? I have the highest resolution the screen permits, but would like windows and stuff slightly smaller....16:54
theadminLayke2: Put a semicolon before that second "do"16:54
ActionParsniphume: use a higher DPI16:54
Shattersbrb, going to reboot to see if it asks for pass before log on16:54
noisewaterphdShatters: i think it will indeed make you login, unless ubuntu also has a auto login that I am unaware of too16:54
humeActionParsnip, ok..where?16:54
noisewaterphdActionParsnip: definitely16:54
Layke2theadmin I think for readability, since I don't know, could I just have... * * * * * sleep 15; wget <address> then on another line have * * * * * sleep 30; wget <address> ?16:54
Shattershoping not noise, because that would be terrible for security16:54
bahamashello. i have some issues with my wireless card. it's a broadcom 4313. does anyone know if there's a fix? i've seen several solutions on the internet, but i don't know how well they apply to me16:55
Layke2I don't intend this to be a permanent solution. :)16:55
theadminLayke2: Why do you need "sleep" in cron, anyway?16:55
humeActionParsnip, do you mean on the font settings tab of Appearance in System settings?16:55
bubblehouseI have a basic question I can't seem to find a simple answer to16:55
Layke2theadmin, I don't have time (over the next few days) to get my Job Queue working in a proper manner, ie using GearMan through PHP.16:56
Layke2So at the moment, all my Jobs are just saved and ran every minute. I just want to reduce that time a little.16:56
usr13bubblehouse: Ask it.16:56
theadminLayke2: I see... Well, I guess that's the way, since cron doesn't seem to have a "second" section16:56
Layke2I fully realise that this is wrong. :)16:56
torstehuWho is the right person to talk to if i suspect the chromium-daily buildbot is somehow malfunctioning16:57

noisewaterphdhume: first let me say that I'm not entirely sure where ActionParsnip is going with his help for you so far, and he very well may have a trick up his sleeve. But, if you are at max resolution, I'm afraid that there isn't much else you can do that will really satisfy what I think you are trying to accomplish16:58

ActionParsniptorstehu: I use the daily, its fine here, which release are you using?17:00
* MonkeyDust uses a different GUI, OO is still in the repos17:00
humenoisewaterphd, do you mean that the DPI setting only affects fonts? Not other stuff?17:01

sammypaulus68: when you try to move the file from the 100gb partition to the 4gb partition, what happens?18:54
sammypaulus68: I'm confused as to what youre asking is all18:55
sammyLayke2: are you running X? 'disk utility' is super handy.18:55
dv310p3ranyone got any suggestions for a good Navicat like application for ubuntu?18:55
Layke2sammy,  No I'm not.18:55
B0g4r7Layke2, 'file -s /path/to/the/device/containing/the/filesystem' should tell you18:56
paulus68sammy: well I have on my server a file of 100G that I want to move to my external HD where 400G is available however when I am using mv or cp the transfer stops after about 4G stating that there is not enough diskspace18:56
tobeDoes anyone know how to add the sound applet. i dont know what happened to it18:56
sammygold star to B0g4r7, you learn something new every day18:56
sammypaulus68: possibly because NTFS doesnt support files over 4gb?18:57
Layke2B0g4r7,  Yeah it does thanks. ext318:57
sammypaulus68: no that cant be right18:57
paulus68sammy: it can18:58
Layke2I couldn't get the mount to work when I specified ext3, so I changed fstab to "auto" and it seemed to them work.18:58
chirag_d_gr8is it possible to replace ubuntu boot loader with windows bootloader without windows recovery console?18:58
paulus68jerware: did you see these pages for your conky script? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=281865&page=15818:59
usr13sammy: I don't think that is it.  I think NTFS does support filesizes over 4G18:59
sammypaulus68: are you sure there is 400gb and not 4gb? sorry, have to ask you to confirm :P max file size on ntfs is bigger than 4gb18:59
B0g4r7I always have issues when trying to write an a USB drive containing a filesystem type other than the type preferred by the OS I'm currently using.  I've taken to making a few partitions containing differing fs types on these drives, and writing to whichever the OS I'm currently using likes best.18:59
usr13sammy: NTFS supports file sizes up to 17,592,185,978,880 bytes (according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTFS )19:00
B0g4r7It's too bad all these OS vendors don't all add good support for at least one "open" filesystem to their products out-of-the-box.19:01
paulus68sammy: http://pastebin.ca/208718119:01
sammypaulus68: and youre sure its ntfs and not fat32? do you know if the ntfs partition is "optimized for performance" in other words, is it compressed?19:02
paulus68sammy: I am sure it's ntfs19:02
sammypaulus68: I'm stumped. sorry.19:04
brontosaurusrexshould i go 64 bit on atom?19:05
paulus68sammy: however you make me wonder if it is really NTFS what is the command to find out if it is NTFS or another format?19:05
usr13paulus68: Which drive are you talking about? sda sdb sdc sdd or sde ?19:05
B0g4r7brontosaurusrex, I'm running 64-bit natty on an atom and it works fine for me.19:05
sammypaulus68: try just typing 'mount'19:05
usr13paulus68: sudo fdisk -l | pastebinit19:05
B0g4r7brontosaurusrex, different atoms have different cababilities tho, so you should check yours.19:05

Sean_i have a terminal command running atm and i need to boot into my other os for a moment, is there anyway i can pause the cammand and the start it again after i boot back into ubuntu?19:08
faLUCEHi, I can't login anymore from gdm ... It let me choose the user, but it doesn't show me the password dialog. and comes back to the user choose dialog... how can I solve? It seems a serious gdm/gnome bug19:09
sammySean_: you can pause commands in a shell, but their state doesn't stay preserved over reboot. what kind of command are you running?19:09
llutzSean_: reboot same machine? then no19:09

edbianHello ?19:10
paulus68usr13: mv *.tar /media/mybook/server-backup19:10
B0g4r7Sean_, I would just wait for it to finish.  FWIW, if your machine is fairly powerful, you might consider running windows in a VM using VirtualBox or similar.  That way you can boot Windows without shutting down your other OS.19:11
usr13paulus68: Ok, well that is /dev/sde1  and it is vfat19:12
Sean_B0g4r7, alright, ty. And i'll look in to the vm option19:12

B0g4r7faLUCE, yeah, that does sound rather bad.  Can you login on tty1?  I would check the system log for errors.19:13
faLUCEB0g4r7: yes, I can19:13
cccangelhello, is it recommended to upgrade the kernel in ubuntu from 2.6.x to 3.0.x?19:13
paulus68usr13: it's 1 TB with 420G available yes19:13
cccangelwould it break any dependencies or whatnot?19:13
faLUCEB0g4r7: what should I check ?19:13
usr13paulus68: And the file size limit for vfat is  4 GB minus 1 byte19:13
B0g4r7faLUCE, I would look at /var/log/system.log especially.19:13
Picicccangel: Best to wait until it comes as an upgrade if/when you move to 11.10.19:14
usr13paulus68: See:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vfat19:14
paulus68usr13: true19:14
newbie_hi all19:14
B0g4r7faLUCE, er, /var/log/syslog (if you're on natty).  And maybe also the Xorg log in the same dir.19:14
cccangelis the ubuntu team aware of the security fixes in the 3.0.x kernel?19:14
=== metalhead is now known as m3talh3ad
ikoniacccangel: yes19:15
cccangeland where can i find info about 11.10 so i can read about the changes?19:15
B0g4r7kernel 3.0 huh... :surfs over to kernel.org to have a look:19:15
ikoniacccangel: read the topic in #ubuntu+1 channel19:15
paulus68usr13: is there a way that I can convert it from vfat to ntfs without loosing the data on it as it is possible under windows?19:15
awesomenesshey all, does Ubuntu have a standart/downloadable application with what I can check my HDD in order to make sure does it work properly? or has it bad sectors ? I think I don't work as needed how may I check that?19:15
DustyMonkawesomeness: try fsck and badblocks19:16
faLUCEB0g4r7: the system was configured without login password. then, I configured it to ask login password again and it happened this mess19:16
BlueWolfI there anyone here who knows about fixing Ipods in Ubuntu?19:16
usr13paulus68: no19:16
th0rBlueWolf: a nano?19:17
paulus68usr13: ok thx19:17
ikoniaBlueWolf: define "fixing"19:17
faLUCEB0g4r7: there are not useful infos in the files you say19:17
BlueWolfth0r: A nano 5th Generation.19:17
usr13paulus68: Or at least not that I know of. Changing filesystem requires you to  format the partition.19:17
awesomenessDustyMonk, can i download both from Ubuntu software center ?19:17
DustyMonkawesomeness: they are Terminal commands19:18
BlueWolfikonia: It won't show up in my Ubuntu or windows, as when I plug it in it wont show up.19:18
awesomenessDustyMonk, oh i see thanks let me give a try and can i get something out of it19:18
th0rBlueWolf: I have been playing a lot with mine recently in preparation for my soon to arrive touch.From what I have learned, you cannot repair (restore) it from linux. I cannot even get it to work via xp in a vm, but it does restore in xp on another machine.19:18
fabio333_BlueWolf, try with rhytmbox19:18
Aniarany big networking geeks in here who are still using /etc/network/interfaces rather than network-manager ?19:18

usr13paulus68: Is it possible under MS Windows to change format type from vfat to ntfs without loosing data?19:19
gnaddelIs my google-result, that it's currently not possible to use netatalk to create a time machine backup volume for osx-lion, correct?19:19
sammyanyone using earcandy? or have any experience with pulseaudio... at all? Im curious about its auto-volume-changing features when notifications are played.19:19
sammyAniar: ive used the interfaces file before, whats up19:19
AniarI'm trying to figure out if I can set the MTU on my network to 9000 if I have a specific IP address.19:19
awesomenessDustyMonk, fsck commands tells me "WARNING!!!  The filesystem is mounted.   If you continue you ***WILL***19:19
awesomenesscause ***SEVERE*** filesystem damage."19:19
fabio333_ipod isn't supposed to show up like a usb-storage19:19
paulus68usr13: yes19:19
Aniarsammy: everything *else* on my net uses jumbo frames, so I want my laptop to, as well, but not if I'm on site at a customer who won't support it.19:20
B0g4r7fabio333_, bear in mind, this is a "classic ipod", not an iOS device like Touch.19:20
DustyMonkawesomeness: http://linuxmanpages.com/man8/fsck.8.php19:20
usr13paulus68: Thanks for that.  (I was un-aware.)19:20
sammyAniar: but there's nothing about MTU in the man page or docs for the interface file?19:20
paulus68usr13: convert <volume>:/fs:ntfs19:20
Aniarit's not the mtu that's the problem19:20
Aniarit's the condition19:20
Jordan_Uawesomeness: You need to run fsck from a LiveCD. The filesystem can't be mounted while it's being checked.19:20
sammyAniar: connecting wirelessly?19:20
Aniarand I don't think mapping is right, because I want to use DHCP for everything19:20
Aniarsammy: no, wired interface only19:20
w30awesomeness, you better do that with it umounted or else from a live cd19:21
BlueWolfikonia: Well I am to blame, it was doing stupid things so I decided to format it, but I did not think when I did it, I right clicked the Icon on the desktop and clicked format, Twice and now it wont show up.19:21
B0g4r7awesomeness, yes, if you suspect damage to a disk, do not boot from it or use it in any normal way until you can fix it or verify that it is OK.19:21
Aniarsomething like: if [`ip addr show dev eth0` = 192.168.0.x]; then ifconfig eth0 mtu 9000; else ifconfig eth0 mtu 1500; fi19:22
sammyAniar: I dont think you can set a condition based on the ip received or the network attached to without an ssid. there's no good way for it to tell one network from the next. you could create some sort of script to be run every time dhcp gets a new address, and have it check the current IP and set the mtu19:22
sammyI believe dhcpcd has support for running post-connection scripts19:22
Aniarsammy: that's what I was expecting from reading man interfaces19:23
sammyusually used to use the information retreived from the dhcp server to run custom commands19:23
Aniarsammy: I was just hoping I was missing something19:23
TheLegacedoes anyone here know much about openCV19:23
Aniarsammy: hrm, I'll look at that, thanks19:23
sammyAniar: good luck19:23
TheLegacei just wanted to know if the binary on respository has ffmpeg enabled?19:23
Aniarsammy: thanks!19:23

Jordan_Uawesomeness: You're welcome.19:24
B0g4r7"OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision) is a library of programming functions for real time computer vision." -- argh...recursive definition.19:24
BlueWolfth0r: I have tryed it all. Any other suggestions?19:24
th0rBlueWolf: if you have tried it all, there are no other suggestions19:25
sammyB0g4r7: HERD and HURD! linux is all about recursive definitions and acronyms :)19:25
B0g4r7BlueWolf, does the device still work normally when not connected to a computer?  What if you do "reset all" or whatever from within the device's menus?19:25
sammyTheLegace: can you be more specific about which package? maybe its in a repository I dont have enabled...19:26
TheLegaceno no its installed19:26
TheLegacebut the issue is i want know how it was compiled19:26
sammyTheLegace: if you can download the source version of the package I believe you can see how it is compiled19:27
BlueWolfB0g4r7: Well it works normally when it's not plugged into the computer. I have reset it and it does not make a difference.19:27
B0g4r7TheLegace, you can try 'ldd /path/to/the/binary' and see if it links to any ffmpeg-looking libs.19:27
TheLegaceB0g4r7, sweet19:28
