magik_can somebody helps with madwifi installation ?00:00
spikebikeI don't mind the unity bar on the left, but the bar at the top is ugly/insane00:00
spikebikeI feel like I'm playing landmines trying to avoid windows so I can get to the menu for each different app00:00
bailiesPici do you know how I can install sun java if I already have oneiric partners in my source list and its still not showing up?00:00
magik_anybody ?! :S ?!00:01
spikebikedon't to mention who needs a 3600 pixel wide menu bar that has something but 3-4 drop downs00:01
j4r00tncan't you just use synaptic to search for madwifi driver?00:01
simplebluej4r00tn, not funny00:02
j4r00tnthat's what I did when I added it... or maybe because I'm using backtrack00:02
agronholmso, the synaptic package manager was removed in 11.10 with no equivalent replacement00:02
j4r00tnahh that's why00:03

cuppsyAnyone having Broadcom wifi issues with 11.10? I couldn't connect to wifi (normally use STA) when booting the live CD. Wanted to ask before I install it tonight.00:05

spikebikewhat is the giant menu bar at the top of the screen called?00:05
teolicyHi. I saw 11.10 is distributed as a hybrid ISO/USB image. Can I simply dd the image onto a USB stick I have lying about?00:05
cuppsy@spikebike The global menu00:05

benjamin_i read that guide and i got error 13200:07
IronGuys, I am having an error when trying to activate the "post-release updates" FGLRX driver, it says the installation failed ...00:07
agronholmgraingert: also, where do I put that apt:// ... url? tried the search box, didn't do a thing00:07
zmbmartinsimpleblue: wow that is lame. I haven't seen those problems at all.00:07
new2netMy ocelot upgrade failed miserably. Can't startx at all. The package manager froze so I restarted in the middle of the upgrade. Upon loading the OS it ate crap so I dropped down to a root shell and ran dpkg --configure -a (to hopefully finish the install). That worked, so I killed gdm and restarted the xserver. Since I didn't want to be root I just restarted. Now i'm completely stuck using 11.04 off a USB. Please advise >.<00:07
Ironagronholm, no problem00:07
graingertagronholm: firefox00:07
simpleblueyeah zmbmartin, * sigh *00:07
magik_thanks -.-00:08
jribnew2net: you should continue the upgrade with apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade00:08
agronholmgraingert: I mean, don't I get a list of all installed packages from software-center?00:08
simplebluei may have to just switch for now, but i really like ubuntu because of it packages00:08
zmbmartinsimpleblue: sorry, what graphics card do you have? ubuntu version?00:08
cuppsyAnyone with Broadcom have wifi issues with the live CD? Can't connect (loops connecting repeatedly) and that's got me hesitant to install.00:08

zmbmartinsimpleblue: 11.10?00:09
simpleblueyes, 64 bit00:09
zmbmartinsimpleblue: fresh install or upgrade?00:09
new2netjrib: The splash screen shows up, then it drops down to ~tty except it is "checking battery life" and gets hung up on this (I'm using a desktop).00:10
simplebluefresh install00:10
bailieshow I can install sun java if I already have oneiric partners in my source list and its still not showing up?00:10
new2netjrib: I have grub which lets me boot into recovery mode, which is basically useless and allows for read-only access.00:11
simpleblueit just might be this microsoft wireless mouse, but in other distros its been fine00:11
thornI have a glitch that keeps repeating itself. See http://imm.io/ahBs for an example. This never happened before with previous releases of ubuntu, only with 11.04. it seems to have to do with text rendering and window drawing... how can I reset this when it happens without restarting? How can I fix it altogether? can someone give me an idea of how to google this problem?00:11
Ironbailies, go for the Restricted Extras and it will install all you need00:11
coraxxbenjamin_: I'm sure I can help, but if you include your "setup" in your question, someone might be able to.00:11

moljac024aunity2d uses compiz?00:12
coraxxbenjamin_: ok... but which ubuntu version ?...which graphics-card ? ...which Wine version ?00:12
itaylor57bailies, you need to enter sudo apt-get upgrade after you add the partners to your source list. then it should show up00:12
grim4593whelp. The upgrade process broke parts of openssl and proftpd/dovecot would not load.00:12
zmbmartinsimpleblue: is it random or do you notice it when you do specific things?00:12
Douggleanyone else noticing that the repos for oneiric are a bit slow atm does that have to do with it being new?00:13
benjamin_oh sorry. Ubuntu Natty. Wine 1.300:13
haddock_hmm. so Postler is included in the softwarecenter, but even in the Oneiric there is a problem with webkit.00:13
grim4593yeah it is slow from being new00:13
Tru3fateyes its slow here too00:13

itaylor57!notunity | Douggle00:14
ubottuDouggle: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions drowpdown. Using Natty? See !classic00:14

moljac024aanyone? whatever i pick lightdm just logs me into unity3d00:29
cbrownemoljac024a, it doesn't, it's logging you into unity3D or unity2D, you're just confusing unity2D with gnome classic (2.x)00:29

moljac024afor example, if my windows are transparent and they are animated i'm in compiz00:30

Nieroshahaha00:38
rahulPici: moljac024a Didn't get you people. what are pros and cons of both?00:39
scampbellThey got upgraded without supporting secondary repos.  It shouldn't be just press return a couple times or push the mouse button a couples times for such a major thing. It should require you actually select that box, not preselected.00:39

CentigonalHello there!01:20
xangua!nounity | rchavik01:20
ubotturchavik: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions drowpdown. Using Natty? See !classic01:20
thornhi there, so I'm working for a non-profit, and I have some older computers with 500 MB to 1000MB of RAM, and I keep getting video glitches when I get close to running out of memory. I don't think we have any actual video cards. If someone would please help me, that would be great.

deebee_SetiAmon: you can't run 32 bit drivers on x64 windows, it's only user mode 32 bits apps that work01:23
soreau! fsck01:23
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot01:23

IszakAnyone know how to install sun java on Ubuntu 11.10?01:43
Iszakit's no longer in the partner repo, ppa? or do I have to download from the site?01:43
xanguaIszak: is not, you can install openjdk7 but if you want oracle/sun java just saw a post on omg!ubuntu! blog01:44
Iszakxangua, is open JDK a complete implementation of sun java?01:45
xanguaIszak: is the free part01:45
Iszakcan't find anything om OMG Ubuntu!01:46
xanguafree, open source¿ don't remember exactly; let's say floss01:46
almoxarifeIszak: the headless is missing I think01:46
FlynsarmyHow do you enable the nouveau 3d drivers in 11.10?01:46
IszakThink I'll stick with Sun Java for now.01:46

keith_linux123thanks to all the devs on this realease01:47
almoxarifeFlynsarmy: why not the nvidia-current ?01:47
rdkhas anyone had luck getting 11.10 to work with dual monitors and ati restricted drivers?  I keep making the selection in the catalyst control panel, and it keeps reverting back to cloned.01:47
xanguaIszak: 10 things to do after install 11.10, it's there on omgubuntu01:47

Iszakxangua, similar site :P01:48
xangua!nounity | kzman01:48
ubottukzman: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions drowpdown. Using Natty? See !classic01:48

StepNjumpHas there anyone here tried photorec to salvage data on an ext4 file system?02:24
almoxarifeabhijain: don't02:25
Mocabhijain: you could stick to 10.10 if your happy..02:25
xanguaabhijain: upgrade to 11.04-11.1002:25
Mocabhijain: I regret my upgrade I jsut did02:25
rdkMoc, me too.02:25
abhijainMoc: why so02:25
ellisMoc: feeling the same way02:25
StepNjumpanyone familiar with photorec02:25
spikebikemoc: same here02:26
Mocabhijain: the unity experience is the big problem... and gnome 3 is basicly the same02:26
copproHey guys. Does oneiric have any tray applets for power or volume management?02:26
almoxarifeat this rate 11.10 may need a channel for itself just to reduce the scrolling02:26
MocI'm on the gnome-session-fallback rightnow...02:26
Mocfeel a bit like 10.10, BUT not as refined..02:26
abhijainMoc: so whats bad to adopt new things02:26
spikebikecoppro: no try they give you a giant top bar, but you can't put anythnig it it02:26
copprospikebike: no, I have trayer going, I just want an applet02:26
Mocabhijain: new thing isn't a problem, the problem is when it actually get in the way of productivity02:26
dvivgadfpalmoxarife: Amd/Ati video02:26
almoxarifecoppro: it does and volume should be visible by default02:27
ellisI think 11.10 needs a channel for itself just to divert all the traffic from the disillusioned buggers like myself :)02:27
copproalmoxarife: I'm not using Unity02:27
copproI'm using XMonad02:27

MocI just switched away from gnome 3... The alt-tab is one of the big reason02:27

rhizmoei'm sure alt-tab will be dealt with sooner than later02:28
rdkellis, xfx 583002:28
ellisrdK: because I had a nightmare with the AMD Catalyst at first02:28
spikebikerdk: yeah I think the unity devels all have single monitor setups02:28
abhijainMoc: oh, first day and controversey starts.02:28
Mocbut all the current application integration into the top bar arn't working... But this might just be an ubuntu issue...02:28
rhizmoegrowing pains02:28

Mocabhijain: I tried to switch to 11.04, and I had the same problem02:28
MocI reverted back to 10.1002:28
ellisrdk: have you tried installing the updated additional drivers?02:29
Alex_Jonesdid my ubuntu just wished me to upgrade to cronical02:29

Alex_Joneswtf is that02:29
MocI would have reverted back again if it wernt for gnome-session-fallback02:29
rhizmoedeja-vu02:29

rdkrdk, not the post-install upgrade ones, i could try those02:29
abhijainMoc: wait till december alpha1 is releasing02:29
almoxarifeif the point is to do something productive while the bugs are worked out I would suggest "unity classic"02:29

Tru3fatetoday02:38
ellisdanopia: 13th Oct 201102:38
danopiano wonder http is so slow02:38
danopiaat least the torrent is going 5MiB/s02:38
danopiai'll set it seed for a while02:39
Mocmy iso dl was pretty quick02:39
Mocit the update server that are slow02:39
danopiamy iso download was going to take an hour02:40
danopiaon a gigabit internet connection02:40
rdkellis, when i uncheck cloned and apply, it doesn't stick... it reverts back to cloned... did you have that problemm?02:40
rhizmoehah, so the missing cog issue is just that the icon isn't showing. you can actually open any of the other menus (time, user, etc) and slide the mouse cursor to the edge of the screen and the menu will expose02:41
tanathwhy can't i upgrade to 11.10 without removing evince, pidgin, gnome, and synaptic?02:41
* danopia makes a usb boot disk so he can install to an SD card02:41
ellisrdk: yes, but I *think* it went away after applying the updates02:41
RobotBotalmoxarife: should i restart and then open Evolution. the message isn't popping just yet after deleting it and opening Evo.02:41
rdktry the torrents if are having slow iso download, danopia02:41
jedixthis makes no sense02:41
gentoofa1Is this the right channel in which to ask about installing a torrent seed server to seed the latest ubuntu images?02:41
danopiardk, the torrent went by at 5 MiB/s02:41
rhizmoegentoofa1: transmission02:41
ellisrdk: before i did, clicking 'apply' would just make the window dissapear and nothing actually change02:42
almoxarifeRobotBot: a log out/in should help02:42
gentoofa1rhizmoe: Is that the best one? I want something efficient.02:42
rdkellis, hmm, I have applied the update, but I'm still seeing what you are describing, nothing is changing.02:42
tanathrhizmoe, deluge02:42
danopiagei use deluge02:42
RobotBotok brb. i'll try it.02:42
danopiagentoofa1, i use deluge02:42
rhizmoegentoofa1: it's not a complicated piece of software, efficiency isn't much of an issue.02:42
rdkellis, I am picking multi display desktop02:42
zaapieli use transmission02:42
rhizmoeit's really just a matter of taste02:43
ellisrdk: is that the bottom option from the list of 4/5? I can't remember the wording exactly but I know theirs two almost identical sounding settings that do very different things02:43
tanathwhy does upgrading to 11.10 what to remove evince, pidgin, gnome, and synaptic?02:43
danopiagentoofa1, i'm having a hard time getting peers to leech from me, it seems like hte torrent is very well-seeded02:43
Mocis there a way to put back the file/edit/... menu to the window ?02:43
gentoofa1rhizmoe: I have a 100Mbps symmetric internet connection with only 256MB of RAM.02:43

ryaxnbhow do i tell if im running unity 2d or unity 3d02:43
sebsebseb!gnome2 | tanath02:44
ubottutanath: The GNOME Foundation has ceased support for GNOME 2, and as such it is not in Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot). See !notunity for an alternative desktop experience.02:44
danopiagentoofa1, i'm on a gigabit university connection and i'm seeding at 35 KiB/s02:44
sebsebsebtanath: that's why02:44
sebsebsebtanath: and Software Centre is used now to replace Synaptic by default, but still in repos02:44
tanathsebsebseb, i know that. but gnome 3 is in repos, no?02:44
gentoofa1danopia: This might be a gigabit connection. I am not sure. It is a VM.02:44
rhizmoegentoofa1: sounds like a personal problem02:44
xannenUbuntu 11.10: My networking is not working.  I had google: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1847900    best results so far.  And it has not worked.02:44
danopiagentoofa1, linux server?02:44
tanathsebsebseb, i know that as well. but i have it installed, so why is it removing it?02:44
ryaxnb gnome 3 is included in ubuntu 11.1002:44
new2netCan someone lend me perhaps 3 minutes of their time to help me install 11.04 on a hard drive (and get rid of grub), while keeping the files on a separate hard drive.02:44
sebsebsebtanath: well Gnome 3.2 is in Ubuntu 11.10, but with Unity by default, rather than Gnome Shell02:44
gentoofa1danopia: Ubuntu Server 10.0402:44
Julius_how do i register a domain?>02:44
ellisrdk: hmm.. not too sure. The way it worked for me the first time was to go into normal System Settings >> Display, untick mirror and select low resolutions for both screens so that it'd accept. Then with the new low-res desktop, open catalyst and change, then restart02:44
tanathsebsebseb, defaults are irrelevant. i'm upgrading02:44
ryaxnbhowever, gnome shell is not included by default but can be added02:45
rhizmoeJulius_: www.joker.com02:45
ellisrdk: if that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas ahah02:45
=== gentoofa1 is now known as gentoofan
ryaxnbno, when you upgrade, it removes gnome-panel and adds unity and removes gnome-shell02:45
=== aCat is now known as jMyles
sebsebsebnew2net: get rid of Grub???02:45
danopiagentoofa1, does it have a GUI set up? if not, don't try transmission, it's gui. deluge has a server and webui but it's not that easy to set up the first time around02:45
rdkellis, ah, I didn't try the low res thing, I'll try that,02:45
ryaxnb(well, more accurately, it doesn't bother to install Gnome-shell)02:45
dayduhI'm thinking about rubbity jibbits02:45

tanathryaxnb, don't have gnome-shell yet, but why would it remove it?02:45
ryaxnbyou can still add gnome-panel or gnome-shell.02:45
new2netsebsebseb, When I boot up it says "Grub Recovery > "   and help  /help --help man nothing works02:45
ellisrdk: it may not have made a difference, that's just the only thing i can think that may affect it. Some clash between Ubuntu screen settings and AMDs02:46
sebsebsebnew2net: ok and when do you get that?02:46
ryaxnbtanath, like i said, it doesn't, but it doesn't add it, and it does remove all PPAs, so since it was only on ubuntu 11.04 via PPA...02:46
tanathryaxnb, shouldn't have to reinstall stuff taht's already installed02:46
sebsebsebnew2net: did you upgrade to 11.10 and it went wrong and so Grub issue?02:46
ryaxnbit removes gnome-panel because it's a legacy component02:46

sebsebseb!nounity | ryaxnb02:47
ubotturyaxnb: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions drowpdown. Using Natty? See !classic02:47
ryaxnband still haven't got an answer- am i using unity-2d or unity-3d02:47
tanathryaxnb, it's a problem.02:47

ellisCan Xfce have the window management that stock Ubuntu has? I'm referring to window resizing when dragged to edge of screen02:49
ryaxnbsebsebseb, well, doing a update-manager -d gets you the very latest Ubuntu 11.10 as of the day you do it.02:49
tanaththe problem is removing things that don't need to be. they should be upgraded instead of removed, forcing user to note down what's removed and reinstall again after02:49
ryaxnbwhich includes some post-beta 2 files but maybe not the release files.02:49

al4nc4dskernel 3.0 ?02:53
tanathryaxnb, it wants to remove it for me02:53
kamilnadeemSynaptic is still here02:53
ryaxnbkamilnadeem, then you are on the newest ubuntu 11.1002:53
sebsebsebnew2net: or do it in manual install, and set up a seperate /home if you really wanted to even, but you got two hard disks anyway02:53
ryaxnband that is that.02:53
ellisrdk, oh right, well on mine it's the shortcut for Workspace Siwtcher. Just click that instead, it's in the launcher02:53
sebsebsebnew2net: manual install, I meant custum partitining in the installer02:54
ryaxnblet's try this02:54
ellisrdk, it's just that it has lots of strange rendering artefacts on mine, wondering if it's a common problem with AMD cards02:54
ryaxnbif unity-2d is running, they'll be a unity-2d process, right, and if 3d is running, there'll be a compiz process, right?02:54
grendal-primeok this is making me nuts...install just stops at the ubuntu screen02:54
ryaxnbso i can do a ps -aux to tell??02:54
grendal-primeeven the alternate installer02:54

ryaxnbso i have unity 3d then.02:56
sebsebsebnew2net: doesn't really matter where it goes I think, which hard disk02:56
ellisrdk, oh right. Well I've just reinstalled 11.10, and am having the exact same problem as you now. AMD Catalyst isn't saving settings02:56
ryaxnbgrendal-prime, have you tried banging the keyboard, that actually worked for me once02:56
ryaxnbas in "pressing all the keys in succesion"02:56

sandraellis, if it's any consolation I found oneriric Xfce is a very nice and snappy OS03:26
Stingray88almoxarife: whatever the default file manager is03:26
popschdajhorn, hm. a pity, because I experience lots of bugs with nautilus03:26
ellissandra, seems nice so far. Business first though: have to get these monitors sorted03:27
almoxarifeStingray88: I guess I should have asked, you using ubuntu?03:27
Stingray88almoxarife: 11.0403:27
popschdajhorn, but overall it's working :-) the bleeding edge.03:27
ellisrdk, falling at the first hurdle unfortunately. Catalyst won't open in super-user for some reason03:27
rdkellis, I think 11.10 hates catalyst03:27
dajhornpopsch: I had to suck it up and learn XFCE.  I couldn't get GNOME the way I wanted it.03:27
sandraI finally managed to install 11.10 ...was disapointed that I  couldn't get  Ubuntu 11.10 32 bit edition to load on my laptop.03:27
ellisrdk, sure seems that way03:28
almoxarifeStingray88: you did or did not install nautilus-share?03:28
Benwalburnthe guide that someone directed me to to install the broadcom driver manually either is not what i need or i did something wrong03:28
Benwalburncan someone walk me through?03:28
Stingray88almoxarife: I don't think I typed it in correctly hang on03:28
popschdajhorn, I think 11.10 looks gorgeous with the theme and the cleaned up nautilus. I like it03:28
almoxarifeStingray88: nautilus-share03:28
soreaurdk: ellis: It doesn't have anything to do with the version of ubuntu. Most any proprietary drivers are problematic03:28
sandraCould someone kindly tell me how to open a root file manager under 11.1003:29
ellisrdk, at least xfce has let me set independent screen resolutions... not with Catalyst, mind you03:29
Stingray88almoxarife: it says it was already installed03:29
ellissoreau: I don't think that is the case though. It worked flawless in 11.0403:29
almoxarifeStingray88: cool03:29
joshua__So, I need some help getting Unity running.03:29
s0ulburnIm going through the cd install of Ubuntu server and i got a Debootstrap warning file:///cdrom/pool/main/z/zlib/zlib1g_1.2.3.3.dfsg-15ubuntu1_adm64.deb was corrupt. I looked it up and it looks like that is the runtime library for gzip if im not mistaken. Is it safe to proceed with install and just update or download the package after install???03:30
soreauellis: ubuntu packages a different version of the driver every release, consistent with whatever AMD releases03:30
almoxarifeStingray88: now, open that file/folder browser, it should be nautilus and right click on a folder, do you see 'sharing' as an option?03:30
caesar_will i lose data when upgrading through the update manager?03:30
rdkellis, soreau hmm, now there's something we haven't tried, an older release of catalyst03:30
taglasss0ulburn: Did you check the checksum of your download?03:30
ellissoreau: I installed 11.04 yesterday, 11.10 today. I doubt AMD have changed their release since then. Still, can't be certain, that may turn out to be the case03:30
almoxarifeStingray88:  a folder in your home folder03:31
godzukidajhorn: will check it out. Thanks!03:31
PurpleSmokecaesar_ normally nope, but it's good idea to take a backup of your data before update.03:31
dajhorngodzuki: Welcome.03:31
rdkellis, 11.04 probably uses an older version of catalysr03:31
Stingray88almoxarife: yes, it's installing the sharing service now03:31
s0ulburnNo its the same Iso ive been using in my VMs i just burned it to a disc03:31
soreaurdk: The only way you might be able to is get it from amd but it may not be compatible with the newer version of X03:31
avsusandra: "gksudo nautilus" not working?03:31
caesar_PurpleSmoke: is it best to just do a clean install?03:31
Stingray88almoxarife: seems like its installing samba again03:31
ellisrdk, worth a shot. I also read that installing Catalyst through Terminal doesn't always give the latest version03:31
=== Halcyon is now known as Halcyon1011
PurpleSmokein my opinion yes03:31
caesar_ok03:31
soreaurdk: Also installing the driver outside of ubuntu repos may break your system03:31
almoxarifeStingray88: yes, but its deciding what it needs not you, let it be03:31
=== r0bby is now known as Guest62562
soreaurdk: The better option is to help the open radeon driver get better by filing bug reports03:32
Stingray88almoxarife: yup, I just restarted nautilus now03:32
s0ulburnI just used it to install UEC front end in a VM and didnt get this warning03:32
sandraavsu, let me try it brb03:32
rdksoreau, yeah, I've already broken it twice tonight, I am working on a clean install and I keep reinstalling :)03:32
Benwalburncan someone tell me how to manually install the broadcom driver? i have the tar file from the broadcom website, i just don't know what to do with it03:32
almoxarifeStingray88: pick a folder again and right click, your options should include 'everyone' , you need to choose it for ease of use03:33
soreaurdk: Also FWIW, real channels like #radeon may take several hours or even a day to get a response from a developer03:33
ellisrdk, I've been doing the same thing. I swear installs take longer then I remember...03:33
soreaurdk: You didn't stay, so no one will respond03:33
chintanwhy all realeases like 11.04 , 11.10 ,12.04 ,12.10 ?03:33
Stingray88almoxarife: there is no everyone option03:34
Stingray88almoxarife: there is a guess access option03:34
chintanany reason behind this03:34
chintan?03:34
rdksoreau, yes, unfortuantely I have to keep rebooting as I break things, I need to sign on from a different comptuer and try03:34

ellisrdk, do you know how to open Catalyst from the command line?03:35
rdkhave to call it a night for today, thx for tips, we'll getit wokring somehow03:35
ellischintan: no problem03:35
rdkellis, nope03:35
ellisrdk, ok. hope it works out well, cya03:35
MrSassyPantsis there something like smartmontools for sd* devices?03:35
almoxarifeStingray88: then restart the machine, and check on the windows machine, you should see the ubuntu machine and the folder as a choice03:35
soreauellis: amdcccle03:35
Stingray88almoxarife: 'net usershare' returned error 255:net userhare add: cannot convert name "everyone" to a SID. The connection was refused. Maybe smbd is not running03:35

almoxarifeStingray88: did you restart the ubuntu machine?03:36
ellissoreau: command not found unfortunately!03:36
Stingray88almoxarife: no because I can't create the share03:36
chintani installed ubuntu 11.1003:37

chintan& its very good03:37

ellissoreau: makes sense. I was trying 'sudo amdcccle' to try and force it into super-user mode, but it doesn't seem to be making a difference03:38
sandraavsu, it works when I press alt F2 but what I wanted was the right mouse click desktop feature "Open as Administrator" function to work under Oneiric it works under Natty.03:38
bobbertmarconius: tip: just say what you need help with and someone will help.03:38

marconiusUbuntu started acting strange last week and I don't know how to debug the problem, because I am not really getting any errors03:40
Stingray88almoxarife: share this folder, allow others to create and delete files, guest access… all checked03:40
sandraavsu, any ideas you might have would be greatly appreciated.03:40
ellissoreau: it's acting very strangely in xfce. 'AMD Catalyst Control Center' opens normally but 'AMD Catalyst Control Center (Administrative)' does nothing03:40
almoxarifeStingray88: restart the ubuntu03:40
sandraavsu, I enjoy that feature I 1st discovered this feature on Linuxmint 11 which is based on ubuntu.03:41
ellissoreau: I'm starting to think I'm a bit over my head and would be better off reverting to 11.04 which I know works. Is there any way of reporting my problems to the relevant people, if it'd be helpful to them?03:41
soreauellis: The open radeon driver doesn't use amdcccle03:41
bobbertmarconius: whats it doing?03:41
complexity[root@NewBeginnings catalog]# mogrify -resize '800x600' *.jpg03:41
PotentChiliyou're probably asked this a lot.. but why did they remove the Fonts and Icons, etc settings from Appearance?...03:41
complexityhow do you recursively search all directories with that command03:41
complexityplease03:42
complexitysave me a lot of time.03:42
soreauellis: Before installing fglrx/catalyst/proprietary/amd driver, the open radeon driver is already installed and working by default03:42
soreaucomplexity: First, don't run as root03:42
complexityoh03:42
complexitygood point03:43
complexitynext?03:43
marconiusfirst of all, booting is slow. then the volume controls have been disabled (my audio device doesn't even show up in the Sound Settings), the pc freezes for 5-20 seconds every once in a while. I though the upgrade to 11.10 would fix this problem, but it didn't. I got one error once from HPlip saying that the there was no system tray. On another occasion I got a gconf error. its pretty frustrating. Does this seem familiar to anyone?03:43
soreaucomplexity: Second, use bash: for i in ./*.jpg; do mogrify -resize '800x600' "$i"; done03:43
Stingray88almoxarife: now I don't have the option to click guest access at all03:43
avsusandra: I have no idea why this feature is not in newest distro :P Maybe writing script is possible?03:43
ellissoreau: The problem I had was that it would not allow virtual desktops larger than ~2500px, whereas mine's 1680+1280.03:43
soreauellis: Sure it does03:43
almoxarifeStingray88: what folder you trying to share?03:43
Stingray88almoxarife: a folder on my desktop03:44
Stingray88almoxarife: eventually I want to share 3 USB drives as well03:44
bobbertmarconius: this sounds like usual upgrade problems. i have never managed to upgrade ubuntu and find doing new install far easier and safer. are additional drivers installed for audio device?03:44
sandraavsu, I was able to install this feature in Natty.03:44
complexitysoreau, I've been on IRC for 8 years and never got such perfect straight forward help, now I can drink a beer.03:45
sandraunfortunately it does not work under Oneiric.03:45
almoxarifeStingray88: lets try to share 'documents' in your home folder, what happens?03:45
dr_willisStingray88:  may be easier to edit the smb.conf and setup the shares03:45
soreaucomplexity: Don't you mean, you'll buy me one next time.. aw, nm03:45
Stingray88almoxarife: I get a very long error03:45
ellissoreau: This is the error I get: "The selected configuration for displays could not be applied. Required virtual size does not fit available size: requested=(2960, 1050)... ...maximum=(1680, 1680).03:46

maulanasoreau, that will make my data lost03:55
almoxarifeStingray88: that does exist03:56
maulanasoreau, and what you mean reinstalling ?03:56
rabbi1hey, got it, just run compiz and from preference reset to default and then restart, but got to set on themes from scratch03:56

glitch-modbut no sound :(03:57
maulanaor thebest ide for me soreau03:57

almoxarifeStingray88: quite a while back I went thru the samba server install and config to just share folders with another machine, I never got the confs right, I found a link that told me to use the method I suggested, and my problems were solved, btw, the link insisted on everything that was samba had to go prior to the fix, I didn't do it as it stipulated and was still in the same situation you are in, my point is this, once I followed t04:01
marconiusbobbert: I may experiment a little, but I don't know if what I installed are considered system packages: HPLIP, python image library, virtualenv, virtualenvwrapper ... that's about it... well apart from the python packages installed with pip adn easy-install into the virtualenvs. Nothing crazy.04:01

Ironsianhulo, where do you create your installation stick?04:13
Stingray88almoxarife: it's not, how do I start it04:13
bobberthome: then just say that. gentoo is good if you're a technical user. kubuntu is not very good, and hard  to get used to. xubuntu is ok. try distrowatch.com has good reviews of lots of distros.04:14
sianhulohowever, i lost that config04:14
almoxarifeStingray88: that's the thing, it should be running04:14
OerHeksKubuntu is great, bobbert04:14
sianhuloIron, i dunno, ubuntu make it itself and it works in another sistem04:14
sianhulorabbi1, it is already...04:14

rabbi1sianhulo: u trying to install ubuntu ?04:14
almoxarifeStingray88: I guess not in your case04:14
sianhuloi'm trying to update it04:14
romeo_sianhulo: whats the error you get?04:15
joe040288Edisto, most manufaters have a bios cd that you boot up04:15
Ironsianhulo, hummmm... you can try unetbootin and make sure you have it formatted in FAT3204:15
Stingray88almoxarife: how do I force it to start then04:15
Philosoraptorarghx: any ideas?04:15
rabbi1zmbmartin: never exp on hp. got to check their specific site for bios upgrade04:15
sianhuloi'm a mess with cds so i wanna update it through usb04:15
nosbighome: Another option to try if you want multimedia production with some stability...  Debian Wheezy/Testing with the Debian Multimedia repositories added...04:15
rabbi1sianhulo: then why you need bios ?04:15
zmbmartinrabbi1: yeah it says windows required. I tried a few things to know avail. Thanks anyways04:15
sianhuloIron,  i've tried with that, with the default of ubuntu and at least 2 more04:15
bobbertoerheks: i like the interface, but dont like the one click to open thing and the widgets. i also think theme is outdated. i am not condoning or hating it i am merely stating what my experience is with it, that it confused me as a new user.04:16
sianhuloneither worked04:16
bobberthome: it?04:16
kuchikuhow do i know i'm using kde or something else04:16
rabbi1zmbmartin: then install windows, upgrade bios then install ubuntu04:16
sianhuloromeo_, it only shows "boot error"(THE BIOS)04:16
Ironsianhulo, what kinf of error does it give?04:16
Ironkind*04:16
dajhornIron: The log says that the fglrx module was successfully compiled, but it seems like it didn't match the PCI identifier of the hardware.  What kind of ATI/AMD video card do you have in the computer?04:16
sianhuloIron, shows output "boot error"04:16
Stingray88how do I force samba to start04:17

Stingray88does anyone know?04:17
sianhulohowever, it works by grub, but i lost the configurtion04:17
almoxarifeStingray88: by undoing everything that may be samba related and then installing nautilus-share04:17
Irondajhorn, I have a Mobility Radeon 5650 HD04:17
sianhulosomebody know how to add the option?04:17

nosbigStingray88: service samba start?04:17
romeo_sianhulo: ah. i know a system of mine is a pain to boot off usb. It doesnt pick it up as a removable device, but as a harddrive. just a matter of changing the boot order of my harddrives. sound possible04:17
Stingray88almoxarife: I already tried doing purge on samba and system-config-samba but all of my configurations remain04:17
rabbi1zmbmartin: nothing, just goahead and do it. it's always better to have your bios upgraded once in 2 years04:18
Stingray88nosbig: unrecognized service… and yes, it's installed04:18
bobbertstingray88: /etc/init.d/samba restart. i think04:18
sianhuloromeo_, yep, mine tells that either, it's with my hardisk, however, that doesn't help04:18
almoxarifeStingray88: tell me when you are staring at synaptic04:18
Stingray88bobbert: no such file or directory04:19
Stingray88almoxarife: I am already04:19

rabbi1romeo_: if his bios doesn't support usb then that is of no use04:20
GrecooHey, do you know how to start with gnome3 on 11.10?04:20
Grecooi couldn't do it04:20
rabbi1zmbmartin: yes, you will just blowup the boot config file, that you can reset it later04:20
almoxarifeStingray88: what do you see installed? on left side click on installed04:20
IronGrecoo, here it started the last logged in session....04:21
Edistoi thought gnome3 was what 11.10 was using....04:21
arghxzmbmartin: you can, but you will need to reinstall grub afterwards04:21
zmbmartinrabbi1: awesome I will work on that. Thanks04:21
bobbertgrecoo: go to gnome.org and it will have install instruction for ubuntu.04:21
joe040288having trouble getting 3d effects working on 11.10 installed nvidia drivers and compiz settings manager but no matter what i change nothing works04:21
Grecoook, thanks04:21
sianhuloromeo_,  it seems, but i don't quite understand it xD, in fact, english isn't my primary language...04:21
rabbi1zmbmartin: before doing so, just keep the solution ready to recover your grub....04:21
IronGrecoo, actually, you can install from the Software Center04:21
joe040288Edisto, no its using unity but u can use genome 3 with the ubuntu classic trick04:21
itaylor57!notunity +04:21

OerHeksStingray88, to check if samba is running > service smbd status04:23
Philosoraptorsooo arghx any ideas?04:23
arghxpaulnm: apt-get can do that04:23
rabbi1zmbmartin: you won't loose anything other than grub, and depends on your FS/ Drive Structure... So i have no idea how is yours, need to understand your situation and you are the best person to judge that04:23
rabbi1zmbmartin: conclusion is can be done.04:23
joe040288arghx, no looks like its software assisted04:23

zmbmartinrabbi1: Yeah I will take all that into consideration.04:23
Irondajhorn, ok, thanks04:23
paulnmarghx: yeah, but then I have to manually change the sources, then back again afterwards.  I was hoping upgrade-manager finally had that capability.04:24
almoxarifeStingray88: complete remove 'nautilus-share and samba'04:24
Irondajhorn, as it is offered here in the drivers app, it should be...04:24
Philosoraptorarghx: mount paste: /dev/sdb2 on /media/BHS type hfsplus (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks)04:24
arghxpaulnm: no you don't have to change anything. updsate manager and apt-get use the same sources.lost04:24
joe040288arghx, i looked at the nvidia setting manager and i think its software assited but i cant tell for sure04:24
Hdale85do you think a dist upgrade will go smoothly going from ubuntu server 8.04 LTS to 10.04 LTS?04:25
Philosoraptorarghx: when i try moving anything to it it says "Error while copying to "BHS". The destination is read-only."04:25
arghxjoe040288: you look in the wrong place. Xorg log or glxconfig is the place04:25
paulnmarghx: Oops, I meant when upgrading distro versions.04:25
joe040288arghx, ok04:25
arghxpaulnm: same applies. what is your actual problem you want to solve?04:25
Stingray88almoxarife: OK, completely removed those04:26
almoxarifeStingray88: now what do you see?04:26
Stingray88almoxarife: that those packages aren't installed04:26

arghxalmoxarife: hint: dpkg -l |grep samba04:27
paulnmarghx: If update-manager doesn't have the option, then it doesn't really matter.  In the past, I've changed the sources to the new release, apt-get/aptitude downloaded updates, then put the sources back.  When actually running upgrade-manager later on, it still downloaded more files.04:28
joe040288arghx, in the xorg log file it says it loaded the glx module but it doesnt say if it is hardware or software assisted04:28
almoxarifearghx: please feel free to assist, I won't go terminal until i have to04:28

Irondajhorn, ha, now you got me ;P04:36
Stingray88almoxarife: where is residual04:36
joe040288ryankrizan, could be the ipv6 settings i noticed when i installed that they were set to auto dhpc to i set it to ignore04:36
Irondajhorn, if I just deactivate through the Drivers app, will it do?04:36
PCdocryankrizan: i didnt check by downloading files, but browsing is some what slow04:36
dajhornIron: The drivers from AMD come in a dot-run file.   They conflict with the drivers that you can install from the Software Center (or Jockey).  You need to be careful not to mixmatch them.04:36
crackheadOmg can ANYONE help me get rt73usb to work?!?!04:37

ryankrizanPCdoc, Not sure that would be the issue. The laptop I'm on now is a Dell 1545, and it's doing fine.04:39
almoxarifeStingray88: left I mean04:39
PCdocryankrizan: mine made a bit faster when restarted modem04:40

nosbigthe tool exits and does nothing.05:22
zykotick9VampsDaBeast, well WAV file aren't lossy, so you will not lose anything "extra" - just what's suppose to be lost05:23

nosbigShould I run aptitude dist-upgrade?  Should I update the system piece by piece, group by group?05:24
studentzchintan a HD can have only 4 primary partitions and a logical partition can have a big number of subpartitions05:24

ironI don't mean to be rude, but who was helping me with the ATI drivers issue? :P05:33
SunTsuVampsDaBeast: problem is: every lossy encoding has a different approach and notion of that, so when reencoding a file that already lost information it will lose even more, which gives you more and more loss and a decrease in quality05:33

zykotick9sianhulo, it's probably not sdf1 if you boot it - can you use UUID or labels instead? (i'm not sure, just making suggestion)05:48

sianhuloseven_, i don't know, that seems pretty strange to me05:48

ubottuTo see a list of your devices/partitions and their corresponding UUID's, run this command in a !shell: « sudo blkid » (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibAtaForAtaDisks for the rationale behind the transition to UUID)05:49

symaxianHm, in 11.10 the mouse is offset by a few hundred pixels when in expo on my system, dual monitors under AMD05:50
yagoosianhulo, UUID is used in /etc/fstab and kernel bootlines05:51

glebihanDatz, you can use gnome-fallback-session + gnome-panel05:54
seven_when i try it, ubuntu wont reboot05:54
fade_hey guys does the firewall automatically activates in ubuntu?05:55
yagooseven_, if none of ur current kernels can support the backlit.. then probably u have to do your own compiling :/05:55
Datzglebihan: thanks. It's either that or have to go with debian for awhile. :-/05:55

yagookeyboardtalk, u can also set passwords to grub ..05:57
yagookeyboardtalk, or simply set a password to the bios..05:57
urlin2ukeyboardtalk, to do anything you will have to use a password a cli does not= full control05:57
yagookeyboardtalk, so a password is needed after the bios-boot test05:58

yagooQuestion, /boot/grub/grub.cfg -- there should be a line near the beginning -- it may be "set default .." or "default" (default numbering starts from 0)05:58
sianhulothe problem is that i know if you can use an old kernel version...05:58
keyboardtalkurlin2u: I was able to change the passwords for all users05:58
urlin2umariano, get a screen shot if you can it sounds like a compiz setup.05:59
zykotick9Question, yagoo's suggestion is actually a poor one.  grub.cfg says "do not edit" for good reason, it's reset every time you update kernel/grub - use phlak_user's suggestion instead05:59
symaxianWow, right after bootup there is a handful of regressions with expo and dual monitors on 11.1005:59
marianook i'll try it05:59

faryshtaDoes someone owns a broadcom wifi here?06:03
phlak_userLewoco__: it isnt; its LTS which means it has Long Term Support and hence is supported longer than the others06:03
glitch-modMy sound it still fubar, listed under sound --> hardware = blank06:03
urlin2ukeyboardtalk, you changed the password to get there it is part of the deal, if you want to lock out anybody else including yourself if you loose the password, you need a password protected bios06:03
joshua__Ubuntu 11.04.  There isn't really an error, so far.  From the moment I installed it, I've loaded into the very basic (gnome, I guess?) ui, instead of Unity.06:03

tanathurlin2u, yep06:27
yagoofaryshta_, 2008 forums show people have been trying this.. it's at least 3 years that chipset was released.. it should be workable.. I even gave u a hint on the module name.06:27

joshua__Hey, does anyone know of another channel that might be less busy where I could get some help with getting Unity working?06:28
urlin2utanath, you need to reload the card graphics at the least.06:28

yagoojoshua__, the busier the better..06:29
tanathurlin2u, i did run jockey and tried to switch to an apparently more updated driver. said it failed and to check log. log said it succeeded06:29
yagooQuestion, ?06:29
illmortalso uh.. anyone know if there's a fix for Deluge after the 11.10 upgrade?06:29
faryshta_Anyone has a BCM5787M chipset work?06:29
yagooQuestion, u have to know what you're trying to fix.06:29
tanathurlin2u, far as i could tell at a glance anyway06:29
* yagoo thinks faryshta_ has asked the same question at least 20 times in 4 minutes..06:29
QuestionI just want to see my systemdatas06:30
joshua__yagoo, except for the people who can't get help.  Lol06:30
urlin2utanath, this is out of my general knowledge area, other then knowing about the reloads after a upgrade06:30
faryshta_yagoo can you stop talking to me?06:30
tanathurlin2u, anyway, why would unity & gnome-shell not add themselves to login screen?06:30
robertothx danke :-)06:30

TehDGMi'll be honest. i dont like changes to my gui. at all. so trying the new one is still a big step06:33
illmortalya TehDGM. And my UI was completely broken on top of that thanks to the conflict between unity, compiz, and emerald06:33

tanathi'm liking even less that i'm trying to give it another shot and ubuntu is failing06:35
illmortalhmm... when I open it. I get a Connection Manager pop up window (never had that before, I don't think). I select it, click, "Connect" and it does nothing, tanath.06:35
faryshta_pangolin: no problem. Thanks.06:35
ch3mi0nI think Unity has potential, it just needs to emulate gnome-do more06:35
yagooch3mi0n, i cant stand unity..06:35
tanathillmortal, sounds like another connection issue other than deluge. i got no such popup06:35

pangolinch3mi0n yagoo could you please take the non support convo elsewhere, $ubuntu-offtopic is a good place.06:36
TehDGMno the major issue with unity in my opinion is that if you want to do more then just browsing and text editing, it gets in your way rather then helping you. changing a simple configuration takes 5 clicks instead of 2 in regular gnome.06:36
ch3mi0nI personally run most programs fullscreen anyway, so Unity+maximize is awesome06:36

urlin2uch3mi0n, "I think Unity has potential, it just needs to emulate gnome-do more" gnome3-do is not even a dektop.06:37
tanathi like that 11.10 seems faster... now i just need it to _work_06:37
ch3mi0nurlin2u: didn't say it was06:37
tanathurlin2u, he's comparing gnome-do to the unity launcher06:38

ubottuStarting in Lucid, the minimize, maximize, and close buttons have been moved to the left side. For more informationand workarounds, please see http://pad.lv/53263307:02
tanathhow do you increase mouse sensitivity at login? it moves unbearably slow07:02
tanathurlin2u, so, i reverted to the driver that works and still not showing gnome-shell or unity at login07:02
cjsurlin2u: Ah, I see. Those look a little, well, "flashy" to me. Basically, I do most launching etc. though FVWM, so I'm just looking mostly for a minimalistic home for the status panel. Do you have thoughts on what might be best for that?07:02
cousin_luigidr_willis: does that apply to gnome-classic as well?07:02

faryshta_tanath I asked a question.07:03
urlin2ucjs, hard to say really I use synapse mostly to bring up apps but my needs are pretty simple.07:03
tanathfaryshta_, not a useful one07:04
nnfxcousin_luigi, where user is your login07:04
dr_willistheres a classic in 11.10?07:04
faryshta_tanath: again. What is a useful question here?07:04
smwdr_willis, gnome-panel I think07:04
cousin_luiginnfx: trying07:04
metellius*sigh* Hash sum mismatch, BADSIG, Failed to fetch, bzip2 corruption etc (all related). My upgrade fails at the very first step because of issues download package lists. has anyone else had this? I've seen it on my home pc, and me an several others at work are also getting it07:04
tanathdr_willis, kinda. install gnome-session-fallback. it's what i'm using...07:04
cjsurlin2u: What is Synapse? It doesn't sound like anything listed on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synapse_(disambiguation)07:04
smwtanath, are any features missing?07:04
dr_willisthats gnomeshells/g3s failsafe  ;) not the same as classic in 11.0407:04
cjsMy needs are extremely simple, too.07:05
cousin_luiginnfx: thanks, it worked!:)07:05
tanathsmw, it's 11.10. there's tons of stuff missing >_<07:05
nnfxcousin_luigi, ofc it did :)07:05
nemon82papai was using beta, and now its all updated... Do i still have to install last release07:05
tanathdr_willis, well it still says classic at login07:05
slothbaghey all, is it possible to get synergy to work with lightdm in 11.10?  I only have remote keyboard & mouse to ubuntu box07:05
andynjust installed 11.10 on my lenovo e325, however, the machine can't boot from the hard disk. might it be related to EFI?07:05
dr_willisnemon82papa: no07:05
urlin2ucjs, synapse is similar to gnome-do http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/11/synapse-gnome-do-launcher-app-review-ubuntu/07:05
smwtanath, And this is why my laptop still runs 10.10 and my desktop runs 11.04 in classic mode07:05
froohso I just upgraded and now when I log into X it shows a full screen nautalis, instead of like, a background and other stuff07:05
froohno matter what login options I select that happens07:06
smwtanath, And I am looking at replacements for ubuntu :-\07:06
cousin_luigithe only things that remains to be fixed is the flashplugin07:06
tanathsmw, indeed. i thought i'd give unity and gnome-shell a try and regretting it already. can't even get into them.07:06
smwtanath, are you upset you upgraded?07:06
tanathsmw, yeah i looked around. i might be switching to mint07:06
cousin_luigiwhy does flashplugin-installer try to download nspluginwrapper and all that jazz even when it does exist a native 64 bit plugin?07:06
smwtanath, looking at pcbsd now :-). Mint is on the shortlist07:06
tanathsmw, kind of, yes. i still wanna fix this stuff and give it a fair shake though before i ditch07:07
metelliuscousin_luigi: probably because the native one hasn't made it into ubuntu yet07:07
urlin2ucousin_luigi, use flash aid the Firefox addon.07:07

cousin_luigimetellius: odd, it's been out for a while now07:07
smwtanath, fair enough. Gnome-shell sucks too?07:07

ubottufrooh, please see my private message07:07
tanathsmw, not sure. i can't get that or unity to show at login screen. didn't have them installed when upgrading...07:07
tanathsmw, so i can't log into them.. >_<07:08
urlin2uRP64, PM are discouraged as we all learn from each others help, use the FF addon flash aid and choose the latest or the beta.07:08
smwtanath, sudo apt-get install gnome-shell?07:08

RP64urlin2u? flash aid? Oh I didn't know about that what I did was install the add on "flash 11" through firefox and the default was flash 10, it installed and ran flash 11 and 10 at the same time, if I disable 10 , 11 doesn't work, if I disable 11, 10 does work07:09
tanathdr_willis, oh hell no. that installs way too much crap i don't want07:09
RP64urlin2u: and there's no option to uninstall either07:09

cjsurlin2u: Ah, ok. So I'm not clear on whether gnome-panel is considered an "application launcher," and whether application launchers also hold the notificaiton area.07:15
cjsurlin2u: (I mean, notification area and so on.) So, where do you see, e.g., your sound and network icons? In your Synapse display?07:16
somethingintereshi all, I have installed the latest VirtualBox on Ubuntu's newly released 11.10 by download the AMD64 Deb file. The progam is install and can be run from terminal with no problems but there doesn't appear to be icon for the program itself to start it without using the command line. There was an icon on 11.04. Any ideas?07:17
urlin2ucjs, in the classic gnome panel is a notification area, it is different then a application launcher except for what is running it will control.07:17

crash1hdHey all if I have a 250gb hdd and I am going to install ubuntu onto it I was thinking 100mb efi / 40gb ntfs (for windows 7) / (250mb for /boot) and 8gb for swap (as I have 8gb of ram) the remaining for / but I was thinking of having a /home but have no idea how much do I give to / and how much do I give to /home?08:42
gribouillereisio, I can't remove nouveau, because it is used by other modules08:43
phlak_userznow: ok change it back to automatic; when it works, note down the gateway and DNS settings and the route and set it to be the same when you config it manually08:43

NoobSunTsu: tnx for all ^^08:45
faryshtaphlak_user: reisio rechecked bios, it says wlan is activated.08:45
lightak well I'll suggest a new partition for /home anyway and yeah 20 for / and rest for home should be good, that what I did08:45
dr_williscrash1hd:  easier to bqckup and upgrade later08:45
dr_williscrash1hd:  or clean installs a lot easier08:45
gribouillereisio, in the column "Used by" for nouveau, there is "1". what does it mean?08:45

crash1hdcause the are on seperate partitions08:46
phlak_userHenry01: can you select some other DE on login (after you enter username)08:46
lightahaving home separate is like asking the benefit of separate partition crash1hd imo. personally I used to setup that on ntfs to share it with windows08:46
dr_willisomega_123:  thers no need to msg people your question.08:46
phlak_useromega_123: do what?08:46
znowphlak_user: the gateway should be 192.168.200.2 -_- that is set, now I can dig www.google.com08:47
crash1hdlighta, you would have /home on an ntfs partition?08:47

gribouillereisio, are you still here?08:48
crash1hddr_willis, right so if all data is on the /home or elsewhere and since ubuntu takes up less then 3gb of space would it be safe to assume that 10gb would be plenty?08:48

ubottuMaMaGoody: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions drowpdown. Using Natty? See !classic09:11
_trinephlak_user, is there a solution09:11
Henry01phlak_user, yes09:11
crash1hdreisio, without EFI at least you have a better chance of it booting09:11
reisiocrash1hd: it should boot :)09:11
MaMaGoodybazhang thanks!09:12
crash1hdreisio, I have no idea how to fix an EFI boot though09:12
phlak_usernomoa: its actually quite cool; if you have multiple terminal windows and hover over the icon during alt-tab; it will split and show you icons for the other terminal windows09:12
crash1hdreisio, like a non EFI boot hdd with ubuntu on it can be placed into another machine and still boot09:12
crash1hdreisio, with EFI it would have to be a machine that has EFI to make it boot09:13
l0lwutHas anyone had trouble logging in after the update? I get the splash window and then it just hangs on a black screen, I can start a window manager on screen :1 manually if I switch over to the terminal. tldr: I can't get to the login window on boot09:13
phlak_user_trine: without additional info, cant think of anything. did you try selecting a different Session?09:13
m4yerhm, faryshta, doesn't look that good ... I'm out of ideas ... (expect running through the whole ~1000 lines of dmesg and hoping, that you simply didn't come up with the right phrase to search)09:13

nomoaphlak_user, yes, but when you work on 2 terminals it's cool to do a single Alt-Tab to switch between this 2 terminals, how can I do with 11.10?09:14
crash1hdreisio, I guess what I mean by that is when I go to boot ubuntu that is installed on a drive but was installed with EFI and I try to boot right from the drive without EFI it says that it cant find any os09:14
phlak_usernomoa: i just told you; wait over the single terminal icon; it will change to show you two windows09:15
zeeroxi have a internet setup with modem > switch > ubuntu server, ubuntu server is setup as my gateway, which i have 2 windows clients connecting to, i read the howtos on the ubuntu site for internet sharing....and here is my syslog http://dpaste.com/634164/ everytime it does the renewal i get disconnected09:15
reisiocrash1hd: I'd suspect configuration error first09:15

disseis it possible to encrypt the home folder at the desktop installation?09:16
scarleoHi. I'm having trouble booting after upgrade to 11.10, it says at boot Waiting for network configuration, then Waiting 60 more seconds, then Booting without network configuration and it never gets passed that screen09:16
crash1hdreisio, ok well it seems that when I install ubuntu with EFI it creates an ubuntu boot menu choice in the bios and if I dont use it then I cant boot from it09:16
zeeroxphlak_user: i assign the windows clients the ips09:16
grifo74one opinion about ubuntu 11.10?09:16
faryshtam4yer: tried that too. Didn't worked either :(09:16
grifo74give me09:16
zeeroxphlak_user: got the gateway set to the ubuntu server09:16
crash1hdreisio, so if for some reason I downgrade my bios and loose the ubuntu boot choice then the OS no longer can boot09:16
SunTsugrifo74: I wish there was only one09:16
m4yerfaryshta: then sorry... now im totally out of ideas ...09:16
nomoaphlak_user, ok thanks09:16
phlak_userzeerox: so what is disconnecting? the gateway?09:16
reisiocrash1hd: if you don't use the boot option you can't boot?  That doesn't sound so odd, does it?09:16
zeeroxyeah, just the past few days but i havnt changed nothing09:17
pasqoocan i not use unity while keeping gnome 3? i mean... i'd like to continue using gnome as it was before 11.04... with the bar on the top with the list of my opened apps etc09:17
nomoaphlak_user, just found Ctrl-Alt-Tab, it's actually what I want09:17
phlak_usernomoa: oh ok09:18
crash1hdreisio, no but if I install ubuntu without EFI then one doesnt need it to boot (I realize this is a moot point) but just seems like its another step in the process, which is why I was originally asking if it was worth it (and I guess trying to convince myself that its not)09:18

_trinephlak_user, using my own user name09:19
reisiocrash1hd: if I were assembling a box, I'd go with coreboot09:19
dc5ala_trine, another idea: maybe go to your console and try a stop lightdm and start gdm and see if you have same problem there09:20
crash1hdreisio, and there for probably not worth using09:20

HalabundHello!  I'd like to know where is the executable search path for root set on an Ubuntu system.  For a root account the PATH from /etc/environment is not being picked up.  I'd like to know where that path that root sees is set.  It's not /etc/profile, not /root/.profile ...09:25

andyhas anyone received this error before?09:41
Halabunddc5ala, default location, somewhere inside /usr/local/texlive, it has its own bin directory there and told me to add it to the path.  I added it to /etc/environment, which makes it work for me as a user.  But I need to make it work for root so it can update and install latex packages09:41

phlak_userHenry01: then it probably didnt go through09:42
dc5alaHalabund, you could use the global bashrc in /etc for that, e.g. a line like PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/texlive/bin09:42
phlak_userHenry01: dead due to power outage?09:42
_trineelacheche_anis, I also seem to be having problems with lightdm09:42

Henry01phlak_user, I havent change any setting since that09:44
phlak_userHenry01: did it ever boot after that?09:44
dc5ala_trine, after your did a "sudo stop lightdm" you can try "sudo start gdm" (haven't tried that but gdm is still on my system, see "sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm")09:45
Halabunddc5ala, there's not /etc/bashrc, should I create it?  Or use /etc/.profile?  or /root/.profile ?  The reason I didn't want to use those is that those files are nto where the path is set for root.  I was wondering where exactly is the path set for root (as it's different from PATH for my user).  Also I don't understand why 'sudo echo $PATH' gives the PATH from /etc/environment, which has texlive; while 'sudo tlmgr' (the texlive package manager) doe09:45
Halabundrk.  There's something I really don't understand.  Also, 'sudo -s', then 'echo $PATH' gives a different path again from 'sudo echo $PATH'09:45
Henry01phlak_user, before i upgraded it had ever boot with the typical "pink" color09:46
dc5alaHalabund, i have a /etc/bash.bashrc, adding a path there is working for me09:46
