Jordan_U!notunity | grom35800:08
ubottugrom358: 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 !classic00:08
FoolsRunIbis: any thoughts?00:08
grom358ubottu: I installed gnome-panel.. still looks totally different00:08
ubottugrom358: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)00:08
FoolsRunI'm getting ready to reinstall Windows after five years of Ubuntu. I've never had an upgrade break so much.00:09
grom358I've install gnome-panel00:09
IbisFoolsRun: Apparently, the bug still exists. :S          "Username shown as [Invalid UTF-8]".00:09
Jordan_Ugrom358: Did you select the GNOME Fallback mode entry from the Sessions dropdown at login?00:09
grom358Jordan_U: yeah selected gnome classic it was called00:10
duma55Uncle_Sam, first install?00:10
FoolsRunIbis: I seem to be the only one with a white Unity top bar and no GTK theme, though. So that's fun for me.00:10
yagooanyone knows if flash64 is stable?00:10
IbisFoolsRun: I usually do clean installs.00:10
bugs_buggeresteban22x: that was intended to be a joke. nautilus has a few "features" that could as well be bugs. like the missing adress bar switcher for breadcrumbs/text. but thats off-topic. try reinstalling it via the synaptic package manager00:10
Siegel-hi my ubuntu wont start anymore after a frozen installation of the newer version i was prompted to update to. i get a black screen with a blinking cursor. try booting in recovery mode, i get a bunch of lines and nothing happens.00:10
grom358but my theme has been changed.. the menus have changed..00:10
FoolsRunIbis: it would take me weeks to reconfigure everything.00:10
Siegel-upgrade as to 11.000:11
esteban22xok, i'm gonna try00:11
Uncle_Samduma55, no00:11
IbisFoolsRun: I actually am using a white Unity theme right now. Radiance <300:11
yagoonobody uses flash on x64 ?00:11
Jordan_UWhen I have a window maximized (in this case gnome-terminal) the unity launcher isn't showing up even if I bring my cursor to the far left. I need to unmaximize the window to see the launcher. How can I fix this?00:11
SetiAmonyou know with all this "advancement" in UI's i think this whole 3D nonsense has made things lower and less effencient00:11
SetiAmonlike gnome200:11
grom358like what happened to my preferences menu for example00:11
FoolsRunIbis: maybe Raidence is stuck somewhere, then. My top bar is white and it won't change.00:11
Siegel-how can i run ubuntu again while recovering my files? without reinstalling?00:11
duma55Uncle_Sam, main distro .iso, or alternative?00:12
IbisSiegel-: "Run Ubuntu again" ? O_O Please rephrase.00:12
joshua__Hey guys, I have a question about how to get the 3d cube working within the gnome ui of Ubuntu 11.10, can someone direct me to the appropriate channel?  Thanks.00:12
chaituSiegel-: Run the live cd?00:12
bugs_buggerSiegel-: what is the exact log you're getting while booting?00:12
duma55FoolsRun, adwaita?00:12
Jordan_Ujoshua__: I don't think that mutter (the window manager used by gnome-shell) has a 3D cube option.00:13
FoolsRunduma55: selecting different themes in Appearance changes the titles but nothing else00:13
Siegel-chaitu: i tried that but it only gives me the option to install ubuntu (which will delete all the files), when i ex out of that option, it just goes into a new desktop of that ubuntu version without all my files. is there a way to recover the previous desktop through that?00:13
FoolsRunduma55: and HighContrast actually does nothing00:13
Ibisjoshua__: Install ccsm, then use Compiz config manager to set up some effects, such as the cool cube thing.00:13
duma55Jordan_U, definitely doesn't ...00:13
Siegel-bugs_bugger: before any ubuntu stuff shows up??00:13
duma55FoolsRun, using gnome-shell?00:14
bugs_buggerin recovery mode00:14
chaituSiegel-: have you tried booting into recovery mode?00:14
grom358so how do I get my theme back? I don't like dark themes00:14
FoolsRunduma55: I have gnome-shell installed, but I'm trying to use Unity. I installed gnome-shell when Unity wouldn't work right.00:14
dakiraalpicola: that won't work.. I just found I have to rename it AND edit $USER/.config/user-dirs.dirs accordingly00:14
joshua__Ibis,  I have done those things, and tried checking google for tutorials, and I have been unsuccessful.00:14
=== ajf is now known as ajf|offline
FoolsRunduma55: should I try removing gnome-shell?00:15
Siegel-chaitu: yes, it didnt work, but then i chose "previous linux versions" and went into recovery with those. now it gives me a command line: root@david-desktop:~# (david being the desktop i want to recover)00:15
bugs_buggerSiegel-: You should be able to acces the sytem drive from the live cd. the desktop you get is that one of the live cd, but your home folder is still on the hard drive00:15
grom358I installed gnome-panel .. but lost of my theme settings etc00:15
duma55FoolsRun, sorry, being slow ...so you have gnome-shell running?00:15
chaituSiegel-: if its giving you that pormpt, whats stopping you from copying your files?00:16
Siegel-bugs_bugger: ok but how do i acces it? because when i went into the home folder of the live cd there were no files.00:16
Siegel-chaitu: which prompt?00:16
FoolsRunduma55: I'm currently running Unity, which is what I'm having so many problems with. If gnome-shell runs along with that, then yes.00:16
Siegel-chaitu: for installing ubuntu? it lets you copy your files?00:16
chaituSiegel-: once you get that prompt, David - have you tried doing ls?00:17
=== Lonewolf is now known as Guest97634
FoolsRunduma55: I have gnome-shell installed and it's available as a session when logging in, but I'm using "Ubuntu" as my session.00:17
Siegel-chaitu: no, what does "ls" do?00:17
chaituSiegel-: you are trying to recover some files, right? just want to be sure00:17
chaituSiegel-: ls will list all the files you have..00:18
Siegel-yes i am. all of them preferably00:18
bugs_buggerSiegel-: of course. cause thats the home folder on the cd. there should be some entries in the folder panel of nautilus that got random numbers like 01f04jlm07830. depending on your partition setup there will be one system drive and, if you created an extra home partition, a home drive00:18
grom358seriously.. how u suppose to change theme.. I still can't find it00:18
grom358this is so annoying when it prompts you to upgrade and then so much stuff just changes on you00:18
Siegel-chaitu: ok, i did ls and it gave me the names of hte folders. do i just type in the name of the folder iw ould like to open?00:18
FoolsRunduma55: any thoughts?00:18
duma55FoolsRun, unfortunately you have to get the gnome-shell-user-extensions-themes-chicken thingee workee first, and the once it's enabled, you're good...00:18
al_nz1HI All00:19
FoolsRunduma55: the what now?00:19
al_nz1I am trying to install samba, but sudo apt-get install samba tells me its not available or referred to by another package?00:19
bugs_buggerSiegel-: you can mount them by double clicking. figuring out which drive is which should be easy, the root (system) drive contains folders like usr, etc and so on.00:19
rhizmoeNo match for "THEMECHICKEN.COM".00:19
duma55FoolsRun, unfortunately, have forgotten how myself...i found it through dogpile though...00:19
chaitubugs_bugger: I thought live cd mounts your windows drives too, no?00:20
FoolsRunduma55: and that'll fix my Unity problems?00:20
Siegel-bugs_bugger: i see no mouse cursor00:20
Satanaaanyways anyone figured out what "Online accounts" in ubuntu 11.10 is yet?00:20
rhizmoeSatanaa: currently it appears to be google accounts only00:20
yagooSatanaa, i believe that's ubuntu one00:21
tomdtxI just upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 and I can't see the battery status anymore, how do I get it back ?00:21
Satanaayes but what does it do?00:21
bugs_buggerchaitu: it can mount any partition it detects on the hard drive(s) if its got a supported file system. ntfs and fat* are supported, so windows partitions will be mounted as well00:21
Satanaai have tried to login00:21
rhizmoemaybe it makes it so you don't have to gmail in thunderbird00:21
yagoochaitu, some do... some use ntfs-3g, or some use ntfs-readonly00:21
duma55FoolsRun, hope so, prolly knot00:21
Satanaanothing happends00:21
bugs_buggerSiegel-: you dont have no cursor on the live cd?00:21
Siegel-bugs_bugger: im not in the live cd00:21
FoolsRunduma55: heh. I'll try anything. Should have just stuck with 11.04.00:21
yagooso who here uses ubuntu x64?00:22
Siegel-bugs_bugger: i was using a command line in recovery mode00:22
tazzerhey :)00:22
Luciferoanyone is interested to a dropbox 18 gb account for free? Im about to delete it, due inactivity00:22
bugs_buggerSiegel-: are you on windows right now. or at a different pc?00:22

Siegel-bugs_bugger: this system never had windows on it, im on nothing00:22
Siegel-bugs_bugger: recovery mode for ubuntu00:22
rhizmoeSatanaa: worked for me00:22
yagookroq-gar78, do you use chrome or firefox for flash x64? just curious (last time i checked a year ago.. it was out of adobe labs experimental and crashed occsionally)00:22
Satanaait adds to thunderbird rhizmoe ?00:22
Siegel-chaitu: it gave me "desktop documents etc etc"00:22
Aleohi ppl00:22
Aleogood night00:23
rhizmoeno, i already had gmail in thunderbird00:23
rhizmoethat's how i use it00:23
Satanaarhizmoe yea how did it work for you then?00:23
FoolsRunduma55: so you're thinking some theme settings somewhere is stuck and the upgrade didn't change/fix it, and that this tool might?00:23
* yagoo needs to decide to use i386 or x64 on his 64bit machine (would like stability feedback on flashx64)00:23
* edinny is using 11.04 with the classic Gnome. Is there anything I will get from upgrading to 11.10?00:23
Siegel-chaitu: i did su <username> and then startx and now its starting up some desktop, its taking a long time though. i see a mouse cursor and that purple-with-light background of ubuntu. should i just wait? and how long?00:23
kroq-gar78yagoo: firefox w/ flash00:23
rhizmoeSatanaa: what are you talking about? try complete sentences.00:23
Satanaai did00:23
FoolsRunduma55: does the fact that I didn't install gnome-shell until after the upgrade blow that idea away?00:23
Satanaatry focus rhizmoe00:23
grom358edinny: I would not upgrade.. I was using 11.04 with classic gnome00:23
bugs_buggeral_nz1: try typing the command "sudo apt-get install samba" and then hit TAB twice to see all available packages matching "samba"00:24
tazzertoday i made my little sister her own login account i have a lot of music in my account, i want her to have access to my music folder without havin admin rights any ideas????00:24
grom358and 11.10 has just lost all my theme settings and my shortcuts I had on the panel etc00:24
duma55FoolsRun, if you're using Untiy, then let me ask you this...compizconfig is a factor?00:24
yagookroq-gar78, i'm guessing its stable enough for me to go all the way to x64 on this 6gig ram baby...00:24
FoolsRunduma55: I don't understand the question00:24
Satanaarhizmoe  you say that "online accounts" that is added to ubuntu works for you.. you have added gmail to thunderbird.. and you are confused over me?00:24
tomdtxanyone has the same problem (battery status indicator not shown in the pannel ?00:24
duma55FoolsRun, me either...so start again then?00:25
yagooduma55, compizconfig is if you have opengl working properly...00:25
tazzertoday i made my little sister her own login account i have a lot of music in my account, i want her to have access to my music folder without havin admin rights any ideas????00:25
Satanaarhizmoe so im in a full sentence asking you, how does "online accounts" work for you?00:25
FoolsRunduma55: I installed the upgrade, and now Unity has a white top bar and "generic" (looks old school Linux, grey, ugly) window widgets. Most of my icons were missing until I installed gnome-shell, which replaced them with the standard gnome icons, also not pretty.00:25
duma55yagoo, i get that...effed it up soo many times...kinda funny ho stupid i am, as it turns out00:26
gitterrost4hey. Again. I am using Ubuntu 11.04 and have an Elantech Touchpad. I would like to get Vertical Edge Scrolling to work and I don't know how.00:26

nhrscreen is all garbled00:27
Ibisyagoo: Can you use 3D?00:27
bugs_buggerSiegel-: i guess the easiest way to recover your files is to boot into live cd and acces your home folder from there. have you set up an extra home partition by the way?00:27
Ibisyagoo: See 3D icons too?00:27
yagooIbis, absolutely.. Just said 100%. Everything packaged with ubuntu worked EXCEPT opengl/glx.00:27

Ibisyagoo: What was the problem before that?00:28
yagooIbis, what i mean with nvidia's run.. is non-deb package.. -- a download from the nvidia site..00:28
FoolsRunduma55: too much to reconfigure. I'll just install Windows and use the machine for something else if that's the answer.00:28
yagooIbis, i already said. OPENGL does not WORK.00:28
yagooIbis, shows in the logs.00:28
wilberarchOh, maaaaaaaaan!  CCSM completely breaks Unity!!   How do I get it back?!00:28

kaweahdentalwhat is Alt+Grave?00:31

gitterrost4Anyone know how to force this?00:32
Siegel-bugs_bugger: i was able to boot a new desktop (not my own with an empty homefolder) using "startx". how can i recover my home folder through this?00:33
FoolsRunSeems to me that 11.10 was just a teensy bit rushed00:33
OerHeksal_nz1, sudo service smbd restart00:33

Siegel-bugs_bugger: haha thanks a lot, but i have a question, now that i found the files and can back them up on CYBERSPACE, is there any way of just restoring the old desktop or should i jsut reinstall ubuntu?00:36
bugs_buggerSiegel-: btw, nautilus is the file browser used in most GNOME Desktops such as Ubuntu00:36
yagooFoolsRun, um.. lightdm starts the X server00:36
yagooFoolsRun, that's driver related..00:36
duma55FoolsRun, I never figured it out either...apparently all the purging worked..alway just said eff it and reinstall...00:36

al_nz1OerHeks: I am following a guide to get samba going but its fubar - they talk about installing samba, but it should be samba-common as far as I can work out00:36
bugs_buggerSiegel-: well, i guess it would be the easiest to reinstall. figuring out what the exact problem is and fixing it may take up more time that a reinstall.00:37
FoolsRunyagoo: my problem is that my windows don't have the ambiance "look" and my Unity top bar is white and doesn't change when I change themes.00:37
al_nz1they talk about service samba start, but should it be service smbd start?00:37
grom358I hate Unity.. I hate Gnome 300:37
yagooFoolsRun, did u check the X log?00:37
JusticeZeroWhat should I do to get this laptop to boot off the stick in Windows so I can install Ubuntu? :p00:37
OerHeksal_nz1, yes, you need to start the deamon, smbd00:37
Siegel-bugs_bugger: i know what the problem was. well not what the problem was, but was caused it. ubuntu 11.0 was being installed and someone restarted the computer in the middle, so there was no clear os anymore it was just a mess00:37
Satanaagrom358 try unity 2d00:37
Ibis!notunity | grom35800:37
ubottugrom358: 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 !classic00:37
robin0800FoolsRun, have you tried gnom-tweak-tool to change themes?00:37
al_nz1OerHeks: how?00:38
IbisIn face you do not want unity.00:38
FoolsRunrobin0800: does that work in Unity?00:38
OerHeksal_nz1, is samba in the same workgroup ?00:38
grom358Yeah .. and the Gnome fallback isn't the same either00:38
rcmaehlThank you Ubuntu developers! Thank you for the option of SMALLER text in the accessibility options! It really helped on my netbook!00:38
grom358Alt + F2 shortcut gone00:38
grom358what happened to system/preferences menu.. its gone00:38
T2_i have a question, is it good to install ubuntu using wubi or is isntallation from cd or usb is better ?00:38
robin0800FoolsRun, yes apart from the gnome shell specific bits00:38
al_nz1OerHeks: what you mean is it in same workgroup? same workgroup as whtaT?00:38
kaweahdentalgrom358: I've been asking about system/prefs too00:39
rcmaehlT2_: live usb is the quickest00:39
grom358can't seem to move the date/time on my panel00:39
FoolsRunrobin0800: I'll give it a shot00:39
grom358my system monitor applet gone00:39
T2_@rcmaehl: is there any difference in performance?00:39
bugs_buggerSiegel-: well, maybe another run of the system update can fix that for you. i dunno, there is a terminal command to run a system update00:39
kaweahdentalgrom358: can't add any applets to the panel either00:39
OerHeksal_nz1, " sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf "and look for the line workgroup, different workgroup won't connect00:39
grom358this is pretty poor upgrade experience00:39
grom358this is a downgrade00:39
al_nz1OerHeks: I dont want it to be in the same workgroup - I do want the service to start tho00:40
kaweahdentalupgrade for Unity, downgrade if you like gnome00:40
Siegel-bugs_bugger: only one problem, i hav eno browser on this desktop now i want to email these files to myslf00:40
al_nz1OerHeks: That the service is not running is the problem, no?00:40
Siegel-oh wait never mind bugs_bugger maybe i do00:40
grom358seriously.. what is happening to Desktop Linux00:40
NinjaJeffI'm running Gnome. How do I find what other programs I can use besides those in the "Applications" menu?00:40
Siegel-bugs_bugger: found it00:40
bugs_buggerSiegel-: what type of files you want to mail yourself? therer should be firefox on the live cd00:41
edbiangrom358, let's take it to #ubuntu-offtopic00:41
ward_how do i open a terminal in the total hell that the ubuntu GUI has become, please?00:41
rcmaehlT2_: Installing from live cd or USB usually provides better performance from ubuntu using ext2/ext3/ext4 partitions00:41
Aleorobin0800, hi again, do you know why I can't drop the unity launcher icons to re organize them, I have seen this on a video, can it be for being on a virtual box ? I have set 3 GB ram to the Ubuntu and the graphics board is fast00:41
ward_i feel such a stupid idiot, working with linux since 2006 and i cannot open a terminal anymore00:41
Stacy__I'm trying to install 11.10 with WUBI, but the installer doesnt look the same as all the tutorials. Specifically, it doesn't have the option to actually install inside windows. only reboot.00:41
Siegel-bugs_bugger: there is firefox im in my account, i want to email a bunch of text documents. about 3000:41
* duma55 =useless00:41
general1232ward: why dont you just use classic ubuntu00:41
fdsachecking for 'jack' >= 0.109.0 : not found <-- how do i install this?00:41
grom358edbian: sorry I know I'm ranting.. just frustrated by this upgrade that I was prompted to install00:41
ward_general1232, im trying to install..........00:41
kaweahdentalward_: superkey (windows key) search for terminal00:41
general1232ah i see00:41
edbianStacy__, installing with Wubi means installing inside wubi.  There is no option00:41
NinjaJeffIs there where I go to complain about the new Facebook?00:41
FoolsRunAnyone know what the default Unity icon theme is supposed to be?00:41
JusticeZerohelp, does anyone have tips how to get a new laptop to boot from usb? So I can install ubuntu and quit beating my head against win7?00:42
qin!info dmenu00:42
ubottuPackage dmenu does not exist in oneiric00:42
T2_@rcmaehl: ok..thanks00:42
rcmaehlFoolsRun: Ambiance00:42
yagooFoolsRun, ur problem is video driver related.00:42
Stacy__edbian, ?00:42
bugs_buggerSiegel-: ah, i see. if you got bigger files i guess it would be quicker to store them on another usb device.00:42
edbiangrom358, Want help with some immediate problem?  I can even explain how to use a different GUI00:42
rcmaehlFoolsRun: I believe00:42
OerHeksal_nz1, i followed this guide to setup samba-shares, it can't be more simple > http://www.7tutorials.com/how-change-workgroup-ubuntu-linux-work-windows00:42
general1232ward:  sorry i can't really help you, i've got 11.04, try pressing the super key and then typing terminal00:42
ward_kaweahdental, thansk even alt-F2 gterm didnt work :s00:42
edbianStacy__, wubi is always inside windows.00:42
edbianStacy__, If you're using wubi, you're installing inside windows00:42
robin0800NinjaJeff, most are in usr/share/applications00:42
Stacy__edbian, mine WUBI installer doesnt look like this: http://www.ubuntu.com/sites/www.ubuntu.com/files/active/Installer.jpg00:42
=== urjobud is now known as register
Siegel-bugs_bugger: yeah, i have another question.it took me long to install the printer/fax/scanner drivers. if i reinstall ubuntu ill have to do that again. is there a quicker way to do so?00:42
FoolsRunrcmaeh1: Ambiance isn't an option. It was set to Ubuntu-mono-dark00:43
yagooedbian, wubi means loopbackfile on ntfs.. its' overhead  (loopbackfile contains the embedded ext4)00:43
=== register is now known as urjobud
grom358edbian: well.. what is the alternative to Alt+F2 . I use that a lot to run my scripts for connecting to remote desktops00:43
edbianStacy__, What is different about how it looks?  (does it say 11.10 at the top like the picture?)00:43
FoolsRunyagoo: the theme not loading/changing properly is vid driver related? I've tried all three available proprietary drivers and I've tried no proprietary driver with no change.00:43
edbianyagoo, yep :)00:43
NinjaJeffAny suggestions for an application that can decrypt PGP files?00:43
AleoStacy__, I used wubi also and got an error, could no install, so I installed on a virtual box00:43
bugs_buggerSiegel-: no, sorry. if the download/configuration of the drivers was the issue, you'll have to do that again :(00:43
yagoogrom358, u can use alt-<arrow> once ur in plain console (eg: if ur in tty1, u can do alt-rightarrow to go to tty2)00:43
al_nz1OerHeks: well bottom line is smbd is not running and sudo service smbd restart or start doesnt help - 'unrecognised service'00:44
robin0800Aleo, you can only move some of them think order may be changed using dconf not sure00:44
Stacy__edbian, this is what my installer looks like: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12195493/wubi.png00:44
kermithow do i disable the X screensaver without a pointing device?00:44
edbiangrom358, super-a00:44
kaweahdentalthe superkey didn't have much of a purpose in linux before, but now with Unity it reallly is the SUPERKEY...can't live without it00:44
edbianStacy__, mmm, what did you double click to open that window?00:44
Siegel-bugs_bugger: ok now ill have more experience the second time around. but i just dont see why i cant restore my desktop. i see all my files are saved.00:45
grom358what is superkey?00:45
FoolsRunyagoo: I'm happy to accept if that's the problem, but since no driver makes a difference I'm skeptical00:45
Stacy__edbian, yes00:45
kaweahdentalgrom358: aka windows key left of ALT00:45
Stacy__edbian, i downloaded from: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/windows-installer00:45
yagooFoolsRun, if lightdm is crashing, then it's more towards driver issue than about themse.00:45
robin0800kermit, keyboard perhaps00:45
edbianStacy__, what did you double click?00:45
tittuWhat is the difference between the cd and dvd downloads available for ubuntu? thanks00:45
Ibisgrom358: The windows Key. With the window's logo on it.00:45
grom358doesn't appear to be doing anything for me00:45
yagooFoolsRun, you're skeptical? Then pastebin your X log (/var/log/Xorg.0.log)00:45
Stacy__edbian, wubi.exe00:45
OerHeksal_nz1, are both samba and smbfs installed ?00:45
Aleorobin0800, hmm, don't know if I have dconf, but also saw a video of a guy using compiz and unity plugin that I have here, and the guy resize the laucher icons as it moves the icon slider size, but here I do the same and nothing happens00:46
yagooFoolsRun, otherwise you're guessing about a ghost inthe machine00:46
bugs_buggerSiegel-: there is a difference between restoring your desktop and installed packages. but you probably dont have to reinstall. boot into recovery shell and try reupdating from there, maybe this fixes the issue.00:46
FoolsRunyagoo: so I probably have a driver issue, too, but that isn't my theme issue.00:46
kaweahdentalgrom358: that's cuz you're using gnome. Unity relies on it a lot00:46
al_nz1OerHeks: samba-common is00:46
al_nz1OerHeks: hwo to check sambafs?00:46
yagooFoolsRun, if the video driver is the issue. Everything else is irrelevant.00:46
edbianStacy__, That's curious: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide00:46
hueloovooOkay, a variation on my earlier question: *can* you safely install wxpython in Ubuntu that already has 2.8.11?00:46
grom358so do people here like Unity?00:46
rcmaehlhueloovoo: yes using synaptic \00:46
Stacy__edbian, I just deleted and redownloaded it, now it looks like that. very. very. strange. Also I downloaded a .iso a day ago, and it had the same WUBI screen. But now, this 3rd and final download presents the screen in the tutorial. this is SSOOOO frustrating!!!!!00:46
OerHeksal_nz1, you can check if it appears in the output of > apt-cache search samba00:47
Siegel-bugs_bugger the problem is that im not able to boot into recovery shell. well i am able to get to a command line where i typed "startx" and thats how i got to this desktop with the file system.00:47
hueloovooCan't find it in synaptic at all.00:47
robin0800Aleo, think that's broke install confity to do that00:47
Siegel-bugs_bugger: is there a way to boot into recovery shell from that command line?00:47
edbianStacy__, the regular CDs have wubi on them00:47
bugs_buggertittu: the dvd has more software ready to install with the system, the cd needs certain packages to be downloaded after the installing of the system00:47
kaweahdentalgrom358: don't like it much, but gnome in 11.10 is not working all that well anymore00:47
FoolsRunyagoo: so if I switch to the generic, non proprietary driver and lightdm stops crashing, how do I fix my theme problem?00:47
tittu@bugs_bugger: thanks00:47
yagooFoolsRun, I think I can't help you. You refuse to post your X log. Good luck buddy.00:48
edbianStacy__, trying to figure it out00:48
edbianStacy__, do you have teamviewer?00:48
Siegel-bugs_bugger: and also i have this layout of natty narwhal, how do i change it to classic ubuntu? i had it before but i dont remember how i did it00:48
bugs_buggerSiegel-: no, but if i recall it correctly there is a way to log you into a shell session as a user on the system from the live cd.00:48
Aleorobin0800, I could not install confity, I followed the instructions but could no install, don't know why., which they have a deb package00:48
FoolsRunyagoo: I'm rebooting. I'll pastebin my log in a minute.00:48
al_nz1OerHeks: No its not there00:48
Tecanubuntu 11.10 sucks major fuckface00:48
Siegel-bugs_bugger: oh. why wont the live cd enable me to boot into my current desktop?00:48
rcmaehlTecan: Watch the language. Thanks.00:49
Stacy__edbian, no, but the third time i downloaded wubi it present the proper screeen & is installing now00:49
Tecanwhat happened ?00:49
Stacy__edbian, thank you though :)00:49
bugs_buggerSiegel-: do you mean Unity? with the start dock on the left?00:49
OerHeksal_nz1, oke, that is the part you are missing, sudo apt-get install smbfs00:49
edbianStacy__, oh, yay :)00:49
robin0800Aleo, only version 1.0 but that works for me00:49
edbianStacy__, sure, but I didn't do anything!00:49
Siegel-bugs_bugger: yeah it sucks00:49
rcmaehlTecan: If you don't like it then install gnome3 or gnome-shell00:49
hueloovoo11.10 is perfectly serviceable from what I've seen, once you install GNOME-Classic00:49
rcmaehlTecan: or Kubuntu00:49
Aleorobin0800, can you give me the url for that version with deb package ?00:49
Tecani'll go back to suse00:49
tittuI have an i7 processor on my laptop, so which one should i go for PC(intel x86) or 64-bit PC(amd64) ?00:50
NinjaJeffI need a program to encrypt and decrypt PGP files. Where is this in Gnome?00:50
kaweahdentalhueloovoo: gnome classic is missing the System/Prefs menu00:50
rcmaehlNinjaJeff: hold on00:50
bugs_buggerSiegel-: you should be able to select the session form the login screen. in the lower left, there is a dropdown that lets you select the session. there should be something like "gnome-classic"00:50
al_nz1OerHeks: ok smbfs is now installed00:50
Siegel-bugs_bugger: yes ok but i cant get to that screen yet because when i log out it brings me back to the command line00:51
robin0800Aleo, it should be on the same source forge page but can;t check here sorry00:51
Siegel-bugs_bugger: i have a usb stick for the live cd. can i store my text files on it as well?00:51
ward_so when i try to click on my keyboard type the installation freezes and i cannot continue nor go back00:51
ward_what the hell did you do to ubuntu!!?!?!??!00:51
rcmaehlNinjaJeff: sudo apt-get install signing-party00:51
ward_its 100% garbage now00:51
Aleorobin0800, thank anyway going to search :)00:52
bugs_buggerSiegel-: that should be possible. i dont know about it though, how did you create the boot-stick?00:52
NinjaJeffIs that a text or GUI app?00:52
Tecansynaptic crashes00:52
Siegel-bugs_bugger: through the maker on ubuntu.00:52
Siegel-you know the live disk creator00:52
rcmaehlTecan: then use terminal00:52
OerHeksal_nz1, now you can check the service is running, or start over and share the folder00:53
bugs_buggerSiegel-: did you specify any disk space for persistency?00:53
* yagoo is currently install ubuntux64 and expects the video not to work properly..00:53
Tecanwhen i upgraded none of my old packages were kept00:53
ward_third try for a simple installation!00:53
Siegel-bugs_bugger: duuno, but ive used it before to install ubuntu and it worked perfectly. this very one00:53
al_nz1still get unreconised service00:53
al_nz1for sudo service smbd start00:53
OerHeksward_ check your iso first, with md5sum00:53
yagooal_nz1, list of services in /etc/init.d00:53
yagooal_nz1, try "start smbd"00:54
al_nz1start: unknown job :smbd00:54
ward_OerHeks, is fine, its just ubuntu, or how they messed it up00:54
yagooal_nz1, is it listed in /etc/init.d ?00:54

yagooal_nz1, anything with samba?00:57
robin0800grom358, if you mean gnome-tweak-tool its not in a package it is the package00:57
al_nz1and sambafs00:58
al_nz1smbfs i mean00:58
SteveHI have transferred most of my files from one laptop to another, both using 10.4, and find that while I can hover over a song in a directory, and it plays, I can't seem to be able to import files into movieplayer or banshee, and have the play.   Can anyone suggest a troubleshooting scenario to try?00:58
OerHeksal_nz1, i think i got it now, all you need is to install samba & smbfs, not samba-common00:58
yagooal_nz1, try this-> sudo apt-get install samba samba-common system-config-samba samba400:58
emily_hi all, I am trying to help a friend. She said she was updating it but power was unplugged (on laptop) and now it wont boot correctly. It acts like it will but then hangs at a particular spot(where it does its checking and says [ok] on the right side of the screen)I was able to ctrl+alt+F1, login and update but it still wont boot gnome i guess without me going to the term and typing 'startx' Any ideas? Im not sure where to start even. also sh00:58
emily_e is on the new 11.10, not sure how long.00:58
edbianemily_, sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop00:59
gitterrost4I need help getting VerticalEdgeScrolling to work on my Elantech Touchpad in ubuntu 11.04.00:59
al_nz1yagoo: ok - some of those packages were already installed, but its now installing 370Mb for one of them at least01:00
yagooemily_, that sux..01:00
robin0800SteveH, have you tried import media in banshee01:00
yagooal_nz1, cool..01:00
emily_edbian, thanks, i will try that01:00
yagooal_nz1, maybe a gui app gets installed to setup samba.. if not maybe u can list it with dpkg -L system-config-samba01:00
edbianemily_, sure01:00
al_nz1yagoo: so after all thats installed - sudo service smbd start?01:01
SteveHrobin0800: I show the files in the queue, but a) no sound when it plays and b) the Play button doesn't change to a Pause icon.01:01
robin0800SteveH, you have codecs installed?01:02
yagooal_nz1, i dont know the procedure for 11.10..01:02
linuswhat's the difference between loging in with ubuntu and logging in with ubuntu 2d cause I can only login with 2d01:02

yagooal_nz1, i would check the menu, see if there's a samba config app there..01:02
al_nz1yagoo: its running now :-)01:02
SteveHrobin0800: I haven't explicitly installed any.01:03
yagooal_nz1, cool.. btw i was too lazy to use apt-cache search.. and saw this http://www.noobslab.com/2011/07/samba-installation-on-ubuntu-11-041110.html01:03
stewart_Is there a way to get the new toolbar on to my primary display?01:03
al_nz1yagoo: ok to pm?01:03
yagooal_nz1, it's ok to ask in here.. so in case anyone else wants to do samba..01:03
robin0800SteveH, you need to if this is a clean install01:04
edbianstewart_, no :(  That's one of the biggest complaints about unity01:04
al_nz1yagoo: just a general chat really01:04
KM0201al_nz1: you need to configure some shares.01:04
KM0201if you haven't already01:04
Aleorobin0800, installed confity 1.0, I set the laucher size to 32 but no changes, going to log off and in01:04
JusticeZeroHow is K coming along compared to gnome and unity?01:04
al_nz1KM0201: yep - I think I am ok to do that - thanks01:04
Aleosee if they change this way01:05
SteveHrobin0800: Any particular codecs?  My music is generally mp3.01:05
yagooal_nz1, btw u get any graphical app from that config package?01:05
al_nz1yagoo: how would I know?01:05
yagooal_nz1, maybe it's in system settings01:05
stewart_edbian: ah thats ok... I suppose it makes sense having it there but would be nice to customise... maybe next year... thanks for the heads up01:05
linuswhat's the difference between loging in with ubuntu and logging in with ubuntu 2d cause I can only login with 2d01:05
robin0800SteveH, the fluendo mp3 codec is very good IMHO01:05
al_nz1yagoo: yeah I did01:06
edbianstewart_, sure01:06
yagooal_nz1, what about dpkg -L system-config-samba?01:06
yagooal_nz1, any bin listed?01:06
SteveHrobin0800: Can you 'splain how my hovering over a song icon could work, but not banshee?01:06
al_nz1yagoo: its all good now01:07
al_nz1yagoo: whats the diff between the terms smb and samba?01:07
robin0800SteveH, no no idea01:07
KM0201smbd is just the name of the service that starts samba01:07
yagooal_nz1, smb means server message block. Samba is the unix/linux toolset to work with smb/cifs..01:07
KM0201and that.. :)01:08
yagooal_nz1, There's no samba protocol. (people often get this wrong)01:08
yagooal_nz1, smb/cifs are protocols..01:08
FoolsRunyagoo: which log did you want to see from my x?01:08
yagooFoolsRun, /var/log/Xorg.0.log01:08
al_nz1yagoo: are smb and cifs the same thing?01:08
yagooFoolsRun, pastebin it..01:08
yagooal_nz1, cifs is supposed to be newer.. like more security or someting..01:09
yagooal_nz1, i discvered a few weeks ago.. it's very easy to use webdav..01:09
zapshey guys i need some help... i am trying to install xbmc from a previous PPA, but apt stops becuase of unmet deps... what can i do to have it just meet the deps? http://pastebin.com/9C1sid2f01:09

zapsthere's nothing to do but run it01:10

FirefisheI have an HP Mini 110 with the following partition scheme on it: http://paste.ubuntu.com/710391/ -- I have about 107MB of unallocated free space.  /dev/sda2 is the primary partition for /dev/sda5 and /dev/sda6, the linux logical/swap partitions.01:13

paradoxxGreetings all. I have a question about Gnome Shell. Is there a shortcut or faster way to bring up the notification bar on the bottom?01:13
sanduz2anyone know why unity keeps losing focus of windows so easily? when i hop workspaces and such, it kind of just loses focus. my cursor is blinking in a text field, for example, but when i type nothiing happens until i click because unity keeps losing focus (global menu is blank, instead of having the app with the blinking cursors name)01:14
ev_edbian, i was emily, my username changed, that did not seem to work. any other ideas?01:14
edbianev_, what happened? Was that already installed?01:15
yagooFoolsRun, is the problem on the desktop "random" ?01:16
ev_edbian, it installed it. I had to press 'y'. it wont get to the login screen. I have tried updating and upgrading to no avail01:16
jamil_1is it possible to install all the packages from a repo ?01:16
yagooFoolsRun, "The EDID for VIZ VL470M (DFP-1) contradicts itself"01:16
jamil_1assuming my repo is cdrom01:16
al_nz1yagoo: how do I set a static ip? ifconfig?01:16
edbianev_, can you run startx now ?01:16
FoolsRunyagoo: no, the icons, colors, and theme (or lack thereof) is consistent.01:16
edbianjamil_1, some packages conflict with one another I think01:16
edbianjamil_1, also, it's probably several gigabytes worth of data01:17
ev_edbian, if i ctrl+alt+f1 and login and startx it will start, but no login screen01:17
zelrikI have a problem loggin to icq with empathy01:17
edbianev_, sudo apt-get install ldm01:17
jamil_1edbian: no, only from the installation cdrom ?01:17
edbianev_, Guess at the package name but you need to install some dm (ldm, gdm, kdm)01:17
edbianjamil_1, I'm not sure if it's easy but it's definitely possible01:17
yagooFoolsRun, what about the font sizes?.. Did you have to fiddle around with them?01:17
ev_edbian, ok, probably gdm, thats what she was using01:18
yagooFoolsRun, do the fonts appear correct?01:18
jamil_1edbian: if I add it to my sources.list and disable other repos ?01:18
edbianev_, well ldm is the new display manager in 11.1001:18
todd_I just got upgraded and I hat the new look, how do I go back to the drop down style ubuntu???01:18
FoolsRunyagoo: In Unity, yes. In GNOME-Classic, interestingly, some of the fonts are very small.01:18
edbianjamil_1, well you can install things from it but installing everything from it is the hard part.01:18
hylianhey guys, with the new ubuntu 11.10, it doesn't keep my preferred desktop environment, it goes back to unity 3d everytime...01:18
edbianjamil_1, doing what you described will just make it available, it won't install anything01:18
jamil_1edbian: why is it hard ?01:19
yagooFoolsRun, that's what's probably causing it.. because i see this in ur log.. "DPI set to (46, 46)" .. it should be 96..01:19
jamil_1edbian: can you give me some pointers ?01:19
FoolsRunyagoo: that's what's causing the theme issues, too?01:19

szal!repeat | hylian01:22
ubottuhylian: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/01:22
yagootodd_, u install the gnome-fallback-session package.. then can choose it from the login menu (gnome classic)01:22
ubottuThe default interface in Ubuntu 11.04 is !Unity. To switch back to regular !GNOME: log out, click your username, click the Session box at the bottom of the screen, and select "Ubuntu Classic".For 11.10, see !notunity01:22
szaltodd_: 11.what?01:23
pmitroshylian: E.g. things like focus-follows-the-mouse doesn't work with the top of the screen menus.01:23
jamil_1edbian: I must tell you I am on kubuntu01:23
yagoo^ that's after apt-getting that classic fallback package (what the bot said)01:23
hylianszal, i am not. you are allowed to post every so often. I know about that, thank you.01:23
jamil_1edbian: so I may if you dont consider this ot01:23
edbianjamil_1, what is not working in network manager01:23
ubottuUbuntu 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 !classic01:23
ev_edbian, it installed ldm too, rebooted, and still not working is there a logfile i can pastebin?01:23
colby_i uninstalled thunderbird mailclient (on 11.10) and installed evolution (same as i had on 11.04), however, i can't start the mail client from the option on the top menu across the desktop01:23

jeremy-77can some one help me find a link to the bcm4318  driver? I have ndiswrapper installed and been hunting for this driver for a long time with no luck01:24
yagooal_nz1, take note-- x64 bit linux can also run 32-bit ELF if its setup properly..01:24
ex0i want to use the dd command to copy a cd bit for bit to iso...what is the /dev/  path for cd's in ubuntu??01:24
jamil_1edbian: the wireless and wired tabs are disabled, dmesg logs show multiple times termination of network manager01:24
KM0201edbian: that doesn't say whether 32 or 64, .. just says version01:24
edbianev_, start the graphics and look at services-admin01:24
hylianpmitros, no i don't. i use the tty more than the gui. i love my console, sorry.01:25

FirefisheHow does one use unallocated free space, when one already has 4 primary partitions, and 2 logical partitions off of one of the primaries?01:25
yagootodd_, apt-cache search fallback01:25
KM0201al_nz1: thats 32bit.01:25
jamil_1edbian: here is my dmesg: http://paste.ubuntu.com/710401/01:25
edbianFirefishe, by using extended partitions01:25
edbianjamil_1, I'm not sure why01:26
pmitroshylian: Focus-follows-the-mouse lets you switch between terminals much more efficiently, and be able to organize windows such that you can see things clearly (e.g. the window you're typing in doesn't have to cover up other windows)01:26
ex0i just wanna know what the cd's are called in the /dev folder...01:26
ex0so i can use dd command01:26
robin0800pmitros, where is focus-follows-the-mouse?01:26
ex0should be like /dev/hda...01:26
Firefisheedbian: I folow.  Problem is, gparted doesn't seem to allow me to do anything with the unallocated free space.  I also don't want to destroy any current partitions.  Here's my partition table: http://paste.ubuntu.com/710391/01:26
szaljust finished upgrading to Oneiric (apart from the KMail part, I'll do that later ;))..  got one niggle however..  booting takes 2 minutes longer than it's supposed to, because the system is "Waiting for network configuration" and then "Waiting up to 60 seconds more for network configuration", after which it says it starts up w/ incomplete network configuration01:26
yagooex0, maybe it's sr0 --> try dmesg |grep -i cd ..01:27
szalusing ifup, btw, and can't see what's the problem01:27
yagooex0, the device name may be there01:27
pmitrosrobin: I don't understand that question. It is on every classic Unix box I've used.01:27
edbianFirefishe, an extended partition allows you to have more than 4 logical partitions but it counts as one of the 4. So you can't create one unless you delete one of the primary (if only temporarily)01:27
hylianpmitros, yeah, I actually don't mind that. I actually like the xp and gnome 2 de's best. simple. I never use any of the extras added to them...01:27
ex0ty, sr001:27
ex0looks correct01:27
FoolsRunyagoo: the only thing I can find about fonts is "scaling factor" not DPI01:27
pmitrosOkay. I think this might fix it. Gotta restart X. Be back in a moment.01:28
Tecanhow do i sell stuff on the software center ?01:28
yagooFoolsRun, maybe there's an xrandr or something command to set the fonts dpi in X01:28
robin0800pmitros, thought it was something that needs to be enabled01:28
Firefisheedbian: So by 'deleting' one, this will only be a temporary condition within the editor--gparted--and won't actually do anything to damage anything?01:28
FoolsRunyagoo: and you really think that's causing all my theme issues?01:28
edbianFirefishe, wrong01:28
Firefisheedbian:  ya, sort of figured01:29
edbianFirefishe, at least, I wouldn't take that risk01:29
edbianFirefishe, copy one to some other drive, do what you need to do, copy it back01:29
sleepy4201hello can someone help me fix my battery icon, its really driving me crazy01:29
yagooFoolsRun, seems so.. also, it may be driver related (perhaps there are edid dpi helper options for the nvidia driver-- i'm betting there are) (perfect EDID info would prevent these problems)01:29
al_nz1yagoo: nfs work across different workgroups?01:30
yagooFoolsRun, edid is what the monitor tells your video card what it's capable of doing..01:30
sleepy4201i can't see how close my laptop is from dieing or if im optimizing power consumption because it says i completely lack a battery01:30
Firefisheedbian: I have a need for the unallocated free space to be ntfs, so I reinstall win7 starter.  The 11.10 ubuntu partitioner didn't have ntfs as a partitioning choice, which totally baffled me.01:30
Firefisheso I *can* reinstall...01:30
yagooal_nz1, i thought nfs and anything *nix relates to realms.. workgroups sounds mswindows01:30
edbianFirefishe, gparted can create ntfs partitions if you have ntfs-3g installed (package)01:30
open4uwell,it is so amazing....it is the first time i come here....01:31
pmitrosOkay. That fixed it, more-or-less. Gnome is kinda broken in 11.10, but still better than Unity.01:31
pmitrosUnity, by the way, takes about 15 seconds to just log out (!!!)01:32
robin0800Firefishe, its easier to install windows first01:32
sleepy4201i've google'd atleast 30 times looking for a solution but almost nothing fixes it01:32
jeremy-77is the bcm4318 driver already in ubuntu and just needs ndiswrapper to make it work ?01:32
sleepy4201except pluggin in my AC chord01:32
Firefisherobin0800: I'm beyond easy, and I'm not able to just uninstall everything from scratch right now.01:32
jformani just upgraded to 11.10 and i'm trying to look for the old (or whatever it is now) themes configurator. grabbing the corners of windows right now is very tedious and i'd like to increase that border. where can i do this now?01:32
pmitrosI think it might be high time to go back to Debian, if Ubuntu stays this broken.01:32
sleepy4201there's no top panel bar?01:33

yagooFoolsRun, i dont thing u need to reboot if u use that tool..01:36
edbianFirefishe, 1 and 2 are good.  step 3 -> Create an extended partition, put some new partitions in it (all of windows probably).  Re-arrange others instead possibly01:36
FoolsRunyagoo: yeah, but the machine locked up again :)01:36
yagooFoolsRun, that can be used per user session.. (~/.nvidia-settingsrc i think it may make the filename)01:36
edbianFirefishe, I think you get the idea.  I think windows likes to be partition 1, I'm not sure if that's an issue anymore01:36
FoolsRunyagoo: nope, no change.01:36
edbianFirefishe, Ubuntu likes to be in an extended partition better01:37
ev_edbian, that didnt do anything, still cannot open display. Is this why you think i get no login screen and x/dm wont start? I will google lightdm errors in 11.10. thanks for your help01:37
yagooFoolsRun, instead of rebooting, try swithing to console (ctl-alt-f1), (ctl-alt-f7 is gui), then type-- stop lightdm, then edit whatever xorg config that needs to be, then start lightdm01:37

prasanaUh i've installed packages myself as in unpacked the tarball and put various parts of the packages in various places < Installed Autodesk Maya>. I ran the client to upgrade to 11.10 but it says it will remove all the packages i installed on my system. Is there a way for me to upgrade without touching the packages i made. I also noticed that it disables third party sources02:31
mewayFlannel, please pm me so I can help you understand why you are wrong02:31

EtherNethow do I reset everything related to unity and compiz into a user... since it's all messed up, it doesn't refresh the screen unless I make a click or move the mouse. Other users on the same computer works properly, so there's something corrupted with the config. I tried unity --reset, and deleted .gconf .gnome2 .dbus directories from the home folder. any idea please?02:32
elz89prasana: yes, explain and then wait, don't keep posting the same question or explaination!02:33
reisiothe only reason to use iTunes is if you're addicted to using the iTunes store02:33
Flannelmeway: This channel is fine.  If you're having trouble with the speed, we can move to a lower volume channel.02:33

reisiodanielboston26: no it isn't, not remotely02:33
steampunknyanjaIts not me. I just use moc, and my friend uses itunes, and that's the one thing keeping him from switching back to osx. I use amazon mp3, torrents, and moc.02:33

danielboston26itunes is more then a music store now02:35
reisiodanielboston26: yeah, but the music store is the only thing we don't have clones of02:35
elz89reisio: get one, try it, then you will hear the difference ;-)02:35
reisionor do we need clones of, because it's a service (for which there are clones)02:36
reisioelz89: I really won't02:36
steampunknyanjaRight now he's using a VM with winxp just to use itunes. It makes me cringe.02:36

spotterxangua, it doesn't seem to pick up other ones I install02:41
ward_reisio, yeah i have a tabletpc and when i rotate my LCD to portrait the wacom is incorrect / not rotated02:41
spotteralso doesn't allow me to customize the theme (as gnome 2.x did)02:41

xanguaspotter: are the ones that doesn't pick gnome2 themes¿ oneiric uses gnome302:42

qin!notunity | boldfilter02:46
ubottuboldfilter: 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 !classic02:46
spotterseems ok now02:46
xanguaSetiAmon: i have seen on omgubuntu webupd8 and askubuntu lots of shell extensions if that is what you want02:46
boldfilterhipster ubuntu isnt my style02:46
spottergnome fallback mode works reasonably ok, but the panel is horrible02:46
lisa50469Ya, i loaded 11.10 only to have it so bad that I formatted and put 11.04 back on.02:47
JusticeZerobold: honestly, I think that's why unity is default now.. to make people use it and get annoyed with it and make it go froom and stop sucking..02:47
boldfilterlisa50469: thats what im about to do02:47
x_lisa50469, nice :-P02:47

boldfilterDoes xubuntu use Gnome 2?02:48
spotterand if not, move all their contents to those dirs and create the symlinks02:48
JRandolphxubuntu uses XFCE02:48

justin__is anyone finding bugs with ubuntu 11.10? I find that install drivers no longer works, power options on my laptop are now broken, and syncing to the ubuntu keyserver is broken :[02:49

spotterjustin__, it has lots and lots of problems02:50
DasEin-iCe: pastebin the syslog ? sudo apt-get install pastebinit && pastebinit /var/log/syslog02:50
JusticeZerothis netbook has been running xfce. works good, though there are a couple things I haven't figured how to get it to do that are somewhat irksome. (like turn capslock to control permanently, or changing the idle behavior)02:50
Soolqin, id just prefer to ifdown the interface.. its more handy...02:50
boldfilterhmm, have to try it out02:50
justin__is there any reasonable way to downgrade to LTS, or a reinstall required?02:50
spotterbakup your homedir02:50
spotterreinstall :)02:50
Soolspotter, uhm waht for?02:50
qinSool: ifdown/ifup or network-manager02:50
DasEiboldfilter: vbox is your friend for trying distros02:50
JusticeZeroWell i'm not quite sure how to back up recovery.. it only wants to make a recovery DVD, and it does not actually come with an optical drive.02:51
urlin2ujustin__, reinstall is the only choice.02:51
boldfilterI have no friends02:51
DasEijustin__: reinstall, downgrade is a hassle02:51
justin__unexpected issues? this is not the same quality I am used to on ubuntu releases02:51
qinSool: Without nm you have to edit /etc/network/interfaces02:51
elz89boldfilter: again, who cares?02:51
spotterjustin__, it might be possible to fake it out by starting an install, while in installer deleting everything besides /home and having it install without formatting02:51
spotterbut unsure02:51
x_JusticeZero, use dd from a live usb02:51
n-iCeDasEi: http://pastebin.com/z8RaUgbN02:51

x_urlin2u, nah, never seen that before on hp dell or acer.02:53

JusticeZeroThey have seemed a bit more adventurous in their choices of base stuff like desktops the past couple years.02:54

DasEiin sources.list*02:54

wbarberHow do you sync your smartphone with Ubuntu 11.10?02:57
justin__oem installs should read "phone activation"02:57
urlin2ux_, right, but you can not put more than 4 primaries on a HD, I did not say it was the only option, just the one I would choose.02:57
x_urlin2u, you said that you could only restore from recovery 1 time, thats the only thing I said was wrong.02:58

jhouseDasEi, I found a blog which said to reconfigure all packages that began with xserver.  That did not work for me.  The blog also said to delete xorg.conf and use Xorg -configure to recreate it, but I can't find my xorg.conf file03:11

jhouseafter booting into 10.10?03:23
viyyeranyone ?03:23
grom358cause unity doesn't seem to work with it for me.. cause it getting the wm decorations03:23

Lewoco__Is there any difference between Ubuntu Desktop and Ubuntu Alternate aside from the installer?04:05
xanguaLewoco__: no04:05
carlosSIFTU, thanks04:07
padhuLewoco__: Ubuntu Alternate uses Text mode of installation. Alternate contains core only with server side packages. that's all04:08
xanguapadhu: looks like you are talking about minimal ;)04:09
almoxarifepadhu: that's not right04:09
robin0800Lewoco__, raid tools encryption tools better partitioning tool04:09
padhualmoxarife: then04:10
Lewoco__robin0800, In server?04:10
xangua!minimal | padhu04:10
ubottupadhu: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD04:10
almoxarifeLewoco__: if you have a tricky setup you are better off installing the alternate04:10
Lewoco__robin0800, Or in alternate?04:10
robin0800Lewoco__,no in alternate04:10
Lewoco__Minimal sounds like what I want but I don't see it on my mirror...04:10

Lewoco__Incidentally, why does ubuntu desktop install everything without the auto flag?04:12
Lewoco__If I decide to remove one of the ubuntu meta-packages I still have to go and manually remove all of it's dependencies.... annoying =(04:13
psycho_oreosisn't there a switch called autoremove?04:14
Lewoco__psycho_oreos, Yeah there is and I'm asking why the default Ubuntu installation doesn't take advantage of it.04:15
urlin2uLewoco__, you can purge remove stuff using the trigger ubuntu meta-packages is way to vague, and a sily complaint point.04:15

gry2hi, I was upgrading from 11.04 to 11.10, I accidentally logged the user out so the installation was aborted; now I boot it and it says ``Failed to execute /lib/udev/mtp-probe/ : /sys/devices/pci00:00…..0/usb5/… : device not found'', starts a few daemons and then says that waiting for network configuration was unsuccessful, after which it freezes; I have access to a tty where I did apt-get...04:45
gry2...update, apt-get upgrade successfully but a next reboot has same problem. what can I do there other than a complete re-install?04:45
HomeSlice_pdxJZApples, sorry man, it's getting late for me. but you might find it easier just to backup your data and reinstall04:45

stevoZeloZelos, really.  it doesnt seem that bad.  I am using it now, the only other problem I see is fglrx wont work, (it worked fine under 11.04)06:51
soulfHi, I'm using ubuntu 11.10 and was having trouble with the proprietary fglrx driver. Deactivating it in the "additional drivers" menu didn't help, so I figured I'd just select everything with the name fglrx in synaptic packets managers and remove it. Upon reboot however, everything was in "driverless mode". So, how do I reactivate the open source ati driver that worked perfectly before I installed the proprietary driver? Thanks :)06:51
davido-I think I may do a reinstall.06:51

I have an kubuntu on my notebook and a message from the kpackagekit that I have a new distro available. But when I click "upgrade" it asks me for root pwd and then finishes in 20 seconds w/o any error. And nothing updates.

ubottuUbuntu 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 !classic08:46
Theishicool thanks th_08:47

robb_yes you have to downgrade, or use an upgraded gnome that is rather different08:47

MrSassyPantswhat's a good mail client?10:04
nelson8874how do i go to irc.spotchat.org. Using pidgin10:05
almoxarifebrahmana: you need to verify that the vm is set to have a 'always connected' network setting10:05
conntrackQuite an experience to live in fear, isn't it? That's what it is to be a slave.10:05
almoxarifebrahmana: especially if you are hibernating the vm, and by vm I assume you mean the vm process on the host10:06
brahmanaalmoxarife: The state of the network interface as of now is connected, sure abou that (although I don't see an option named "always connected")10:06
almoxarifebrahmana: I don't know how its stated in vmware10:06
brahmanaalmoxarife: There is a "Connect on Power On" and it is selected.10:07
brahmanaalmoxarife: I did not manually hibernate it. The Ubuntu VM went into hibernation by itself since it though the battery had reached critically low state (which is worng and that is a different issue)10:07
jattgnus is a good mail client but might be hard to configure for new users10:08
ntelfordhi guys, my colleague is having trouble booting due to some changes he made to PAM - he needs to get in to the recovery console, but there's no GRUB boot menu - how do you get in to the GRUB boot menu these days?10:08
almoxarifebrahmana: why can't you restart the vm?10:08
robmanevening all...just wondering if it's known that the latest update on 10.10 broke postgres 8(10:09
dc5alantelford, hold left shift key10:10
ntelforddc5ala, thanks dude10:10
brahmanaalmoxarife: Technically I can. There are a bunch of things that I am running now and I would have to shut them down and start them again after reboot. Also I see this problem often and am looking for a solution that doesn't involve a reboot10:10
joa__hey, i try to start multiple terminal instances from unity launcher but cannot get it to work. i heard middle-click but does not do the job10:10
almoxarifebrahmana: how about a logout withing the vm?10:11
jattjoa__: you should create a new shortcut in the toolbar and then you can click on it10:11
jattjoa__: the default behaviour is to have only _one_ terminal instance10:11
phiscibethe relese notes talk about vm shut down problems10:11
brahmanaalmoxarife: that still closes all open programs10:12
joa__jatt: tried that, with "keep in launcher" still no lock10:12

mtrgjatt:  i see10:22
mtrgjatt: my pick on acroread is that it's to fancy and feels bloated more than evince10:22
phiscibei use evince to get a quick view, or just chromes pdf plug in, but go adobe to print10:23

dhruvasagar[4-tea-2]: check alsamixer, it might just be muted.11:03
dhruvasagarPelo: I agree11:03
[4-tea-2]dhruvasagar: it's not muted, it works about 0.2s per second.11:03
dhruvasagar[4-tea-2]: I am not sure what that even means.11:03
phiscibei under stand, upgrades can almost brick a systme, but the bugs are getting ironed out, you keep adding more COMPLEXITY to the system and it always makes it harder to figure out whats happening11:03
[4-tea-2]0.2s audio, followed by 0.8s silence, followed by 0.2s audio11:04
Pelobye for now11:04
dhruvasagar[4-tea-2]: that sounds funny...11:04
[4-tea-2]As if someone was playing with my volume.11:04
[4-tea-2]dhruvasagar: it's at least completely unexpected behaviour.11:04
enchiladoSir Brian Blessed. That would be epic.11:04
phiscibedelete pulseaudio configureation, reboot11:04
dhruvasagar[4-tea-2]: true...11:04
jattPelo: in principle ubuntu 11.10 is a good system. most of the underlying software like the new kernel, C-library, etc, are worthy to upgrade to. unfortunately the quality of the released desktop environments is pretty grim (with the exception of xfce).11:05
fritschjatt: i would not say that11:05
fritschjatt: it is different from all that was before11:05
phiscibehttp://blog.sudobits.com/2011/09/04/ubuntu-11-10-oneiric-ocelot-keyboard-shortcuts-for-unity/  dhruvasagar11:05
[4-tea-2]Also, I got the impression that the multiarch stuff is only half done. My 32bit apps stopped working, apparently because I can't have a 32bit libSDL.11:05
fritschjatt: i forced myself to use unity for the last 6 weeks11:05
fritschjatt: it was very hard :-)11:06
dhruvasagarI have a problem with audio myself, the 'auto muting' works, but when I plug in my headphone and it mutes the speakers, for some reason that mutes the headphones (not in alsamixer, just physically), if I disable alsa mixer, then even if I plug in headphones, both speaker & headphones play music11:06
fritschjatt: but gnome3 is even harder imho11:06
jattafter I replaced unity/gnome3 with xfce4 my system feels as robust as before the upgrade11:06
dhruvasagarphiscibe: thanks, I am sure that will be helpful11:06
jattso 11.10 is not a bad release overall11:06
fritschjatt: jep, i thought about this alternative11:06
enchiladoI've been using Unity for nearly a year and I still don't like it :S11:06
phiscibethey changed the 64bit code to add more suport for running 32 bit apps in 64 system, or course that means buggs11:06
dhruvasagarphiscibe: actually that does not, I know them all.11:06
fritschjatt: some things are pretty bad. "dont dim my screen when i am on battery every 2 minutes"11:06
fritschjatt: such options are just missing11:07
fritschjatt: no chance to change this stuff11:07
dhruvasagarphiscibe: my problem is with the way they've changed the behaviour of 'Alt+Tab'11:07
dhruvasagarphiscibe: previously Alt+Tab switched between windows on the current workspace, but now it does so for windows on all workspaces. That is my problem.11:07
jribenchilado: plenty of alternatives, I would use something I liked11:07
enchiladoYeah, I've considered many times using Arch Linux.11:07
dhruvasagarphiscibe: workspaces seams to have become obsolete by this change, I don't understand what purpose they solve anymore11:08
enchiladoBut I'm not pro enough yet. I will eventually.11:08
jribenchilado: well arch is fine, but you can just use a different window manager/desktop environment on ubuntu...11:08
dhruvasagarphiscibe: seems*11:08
wakejagrwhere in the startup scripts is the virtual console selected?  i want 1 instead of 7 since i have no x11.11:08
enchiladojrib: oh I know11:08
enchiladobut I don't see any point in using Ubuntu if I'm going to do that.11:08
jribwakejagr: look at your kernel line in your grub configuration, it probably says something like "chvt"11:09
[4-tea-2]phiscibe: breaking stuff in a release in a way that will stop users from using their existing applications is bad, mmmkay?11:09
phiscibeyou prbably have to set the alt tab behaviour in copiz11:09
jribenchilado: oh?11:09
wakejagrjrib: thanks.  i'll look at that11:09
llutz_enchilado: so you use ubuntu because unity which you don't like? stupid...11:09

enchiladollutz_: I use Ubuntu because I used to love it. :/11:10
jattunity gets too much credit/visibility. is just a desktop environment which can be easily replaced leaving the underlying system intact.11:10
LjLLachezar: meh try another distribution if you're not content with Ubuntu11:10
llutz_enchilado: what do you love if changing the WM/DE kills this "love"?11:10

dhruvasagarsrini: that's a tad out of my area of expertease. ask everyone.11:12
jattanother advantage of using xfce is that it requires fewer resources so you will have more CPU and memory for the applications you use.11:13
rommsrini: linux already runs on arm, of course...11:13
phiscibethis ihas been done, unless u just like compling11:13
jribLachezar: what are you having an issue with? unity?  Just use a different window manager11:13
dhruvasagarLachezar: I can understand your frustration, and share the same :(11:13
Lachezarjrib: Which one? All suck dounkey balls compared to Gnome2.11:13
dhruvasagarexpertise :)11:13
jattxfce doesn't11:13
jribLachezar: a lot of people that like gnome2 also like xfce11:13
LachezarGnome shell is next to useless, Unity goes even further.11:13
phiscibethere  have been ARM kernels around for awhile11:14
LachezarXFCE is good, I'll admit, but it's a bit on the light side on me...11:14
jribLachezar: light in what way?11:14
llutz_xfce4 is far away from being lite11:14
th_xfce has even messier configuration tools than KDE, and that's an accomplishment11:14
LachezarBetween my problems with video (Artifacts alover the screen), the completely haywire Keyboard layout controls, upgrading mishaps...11:14
jattI disagree, xfce4 settings manager is not messier at all11:15
LjLLachezar: it's very possible that someone will fork GNOME 2 at least for a while, anyway, if they haven't already...11:15
LachezarI loose 3-4 months fixing my upgrade, then decide to reinstall, and the next «release» comes.11:15

phiscibeLXDE is pretty good11:15
th_win7 is pretty good11:16
jattLXDE runs good on phones and on laptops11:16
rommsrini: if you want to know how it's done, search for "cross compiling kernel" in google.11:16
Lachezarjrib: I'll have to look at XFCE again, but I use many Gnome-integrated programs.11:16
wakejagrjrib: i found a vt.handoff option passed to the kernel at boottime.  thanks for the tip11:16
ju2effuck it, im installing debian, more stable, and i can see your opinions on ubuntu, i didnt know it suchk so much, will see how debian manage my studio, do you know if i can get real time kernel on debian11:16

phiscibeThis is by DESIGN  When an application window is maximized the window controls, to much controversy, hide by default.

fritschTimLoal: there is for sure, but not at cost zero11:50
yezariaelyphiscibe: interessting to call this a progress...11:50
fritschTimLoal: could you paste a dmesg into a pastebin?11:51
arghx!attitude TimLoal11:51
yezariaelySemtex:  any problems with this aproach?11:51
TimLoalTehDGM: how much?11:51
Semtexyezariaely: a few minor problems but its useable11:51
fritschTimLoal: xdpms force off will blacken your screen, so this cannot really have solved sth.11:51
Semtexyezariaely: I am having it randomly start up with unity11:51
yezariaelySemtex: If this works, you made my day :)11:51
kerzewhich is the fastest xubuntu or lubuntu11:51
TimLoalarghx: yes just restarting for a clean run11:51
Semtexyezariaely: it does11:51
jattxubuntu is pretty fast11:51
Semtexbut you need to choose ubuntu classic11:51
starbrackhi, does anyone know how to make the unity launcher not auto hide in 11.10 ?11:51
Semtexfrom the login screen11:52
phiscibethe only way to get better suport is ot pay a profeswsional for tech suport, im guessing 100  bucks an dinstance?11:52
ActionParsnipkerze: lubuntu uses fewer resources11:52
Semtexbit like in 11.0411:52
kerzejatt : how about lubuntu11:52
TimLoalfritsch: yes it did for a split second but then ubuntu was super fast11:52
ActionParsnipstarbrack: its configured in ccsm11:52
th_starbrack: install 'compizconfig' from software centre, click for unity plugin, disable panel dodging11:52
fritschTimLoal: the dmesg could help11:52
starbrackcompizconfig didn't help11:52
jattkerze: don't know haven't used. I know LXDE runs on my phone. So it must be pretty fast on a laptop.11:52
th_it does11:52
th_unless you run unity2d11:52
fritschTimLoal: plus lspci if you are just at it11:52
kerzeActionParsnip : What is the effect for taht thing?11:52
starbrackyeah i'm running unity2d indeed11:52
Semtexyezariaely: to get 'ubunu classic' in 11.10, open a terminal and run 'sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback', one you have done that log out, click on the cog icon and choose 'ubuntu classic' then log back in11:53
starbrack(if you know how to make unity work with bumblebee, that would be welcome too)11:53
th_starbrack: in that case, (this is a bit harder but not overly), install 'dconf', run dconf, find for unity2d keys there, there's value for panel hiding11:53
yezariaelySemtex: sure already doing it11:53
ActionParsnipkerze: lxde gives a smoother OS as the CPU will need to work less11:53
sl__Hi. I just upgraded from 11.04 to 11.10 and after that my apache2 won't start after reboot. If I start it manually, it works just fine. I have checked init.d stuff and also used bum to confirm startup / shutdown of service. service apache2 start and restart also does work beautifully.11:53
th_can't check the exact key, at owrk11:53
TimLoalfritsch: i'm a bit new to ubuntu/linux so give it to me slowly, i'll use your nicks when replying to you to help you follow our conversation  thanks :)11:54
ActionParsnipsl__: ad an entry in /etc/rc.local   to start the service there. Add it above the exit 0 line11:54
th_starbrack: http://askubuntu.com/questions/62941/how-do-i-set-the-launcher-to-always-show-in-unity-2d there's exact answer, actually11:54
sl__ActaionParsnip: I'll check that right away. Thanks.11:54
phiscibeActionParsnip: look at the kernel log and see if it is at least trying to start11:54
th_starbrack: might need relogin to activate11:54

Semtexyezariaely: few things you should know right click no longer works on the panels (to move, add, remove items), you have to press alt & right click instead11:55
jribActionParsnip: why would he need to do that?11:55
fritschTimLoal: you go onto the command line and do: dmesg > ~/mydmesg.txt11:55
fritschTimLoal: after this you paste the content of this textfile into one of the above pastebins11:55
starbrackthanks th_11:55
ActionParsnipjrib: its not starting at boot, but can be started manullay so adding in rc.local will run it last and should make it run11:55
kerzeit's same if i install lubuntu from ubuntu via synaptic and directly install lubuntu11:55
fritschTimLoal: the same you do with lspci: lspci ~/mylspci.txt11:55
sl__ActionParsnip: But why it needs to be added? Was it removed due update. When it's in normal init.d stuff start levels. Shouldn't it start anyway?11:55
jribActionParsnip: but it /should/ be started at boot unless he's configured it not to11:55
fritschTimLoal: lspci > ~/mylspci.txt, forgot the >11:56
yezariaelySemtex: you MADE my day. It is still very ugly, but better than this unity thing...11:56
icerootkerze: if that was a question, yes its the same11:56
yezariaelyit is a sin to call this progress ...11:56
ActionParsnipsl__: not sure, check for bugs but the edit should make it work until it gets fixed11:56
phiscibeActionParsnip: unless we see an actual error message is all guess work,11:56
icerootkerze: or better, its the same when you remove "ubuntu-desktop" and all it dependencies, then its the same11:56
kerzeiceroot: thank you11:56
Semtexyezariaely: also the screensaver is a bit werid it keeps asking me for a password even tho I dont use one at boot, and it occasionally boots into unity (but logging out and choosing 'ubuntu classic' fixes that)11:56
iceroot!purelxde | kerze11:56
ubottukerze: If you want to remove all !KDE, !GNOME and !XFCE packages and have a default !Lubuntu system follow the instructions here « http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purelxde »11:56
phiscibethe system.log might be a better place to look11:56
Semtexyezariaely: but yeah it works11:57
TimLoalfritsch: i have pastebinit installed :)11:57
ActionParsnipphiscibe: true but the hack will restore normal service11:57
sl__I did check for startup bugs, but there wasn't anything reported which would exactly correspond my situation. I also removed apache2 using bum and set it back. Everything seems to be fine, but it still fails to start. And logs won't contain anything helpful.11:57
yezariaelySemtex: I use ubuntu in office and at home. But this decision makes me think to choose some other distro.11:57
Semtexyezariaely: your not the only one11:57
ActionParsnipsl__: check for bugs reported. It may be a known issue11:57
cdavisWhere would I look to find out why tn5250 is included in natty but not in oneiric?11:57
TimLoalfritsch: http://paste.yubuntu.com/710883       dmesg11:58
Semtexyezariaely: but I am lazy for the moment it will do11:58
sl__ActionParsnip: Thanks for "work-a-round". These seem to be quite common in linux world. Just make it happen the alternate way if the way it is supposed to work doesnt. ;)11:58
starbrackth_ another thing: how to enable shadows around my windows?11:58
jribsl__: ls -l /etc/rc*/*apache2*11:58
th_starbrack: uhm, you'll need compiz for that11:58
phiscibeyes if there is NO entry for the when the server starts when there should be, that is diagnostic info11:58
yezariaelySemtex: we could file a "bug"11:58
th_starbrack: try alt-f2, "compiz --replace" to use compiz as windowmanager11:58
phiscibeif there is a fail to start message, thats helpful too11:58
th_add that to startup programs if it works11:58
kaolc2Semtex: He's definitely not the only one11:58
tabakhasehi there, my "yesterday working" LiveCD(s/CD/USB/) now stops booting (in the same computer) after "[15.721567] aufs test_add:261:exe[710]: uid/gid/perm //filesystem.squashfs 0/0/0755, 0/0/0777" (freeze >5 minutes)11:58
TimLoalfritsch: http://paste.ubuntu.com/710883       dmesg   (sorry for the typo)11:59
sl__jrib: hit, rc0-6 all levels linked to init.d/apache211:59
jribsl__: can you just pastebin?11:59
starbrackoh that sounds like a rather big change th_, or isn't it?11:59
fritschTimLoal: sorry, this pastebin does not exist11:59
yezariaelykaolc2: so why do we not ask people to reinclude the classical variant or is it technically impossible?11:59
th_not really11:59
fritschTimLoal: correct link?11:59
th_just replacing the windowmanager11:59
Semtexunity is good for netbooks and tablets but it just feels wrong on my desktop with a 22" and 32" dual screen setup11:59
yezariaely(which could be the place!)11:59
=== Alex`aw is now known as BaNz
sl__jrib, naturally. http://pastebin.com/DGC0Z5rk11:59
TimLoalfritsch: http://paste.ubuntu.com/710833       dmesg   (sorry for the second  typo)12:00
starbrackso it doesn't completely replace unity then?12:00
th_nope, it's unity2d with compiz as windowmanager12:00
=== Mud is now known as Guest955
th_whereas unity3d itself is a full plugin for compiz12:00
fritschTimLoal: ah okay, i see you have an nvidia card?12:00
Semtexyezariaely: its a controversial decision made by the ubuntu management12:00
jribsl__: the releases notes says there were some changes to how upstart handles the sys-v-init scripts, I'd start there.  Anything interesting in /etc/default/apache2?12:00
th_starbrack: but why you don't just run full unity3d? :)12:00
Semtexyezariaely: but I dont think its going to change12:00
fritschTimLoal: try to use the nvidia proprietary drivers12:00
th_starbrack: it has many handy features that aren't present in 2d12:00
fritschTimLoal: go to SystemSettings Additional Drivers12:01
yezariaelySemtex: so let's take over the management :D12:01
ActionParsnipSemtex: there are other DEs you can use if Unity isn't for you....12:01
fritschTimLoal: and install nvidia drivers12:01
starbrackth_: my laptop has this videocard that needs bumblebee to use it12:01
TimLoalfritsch: yes ok12:01
starbrackand i don't know how to tell unity to run with optirun12:01
sl__jrib, not as far as I know. http://pastebin.com/nHi7utVp12:01
jattCanonical shares aren't on market.12:01
starbrackif you know how to do that, that would be better indeed12:01
fritschTimLoal: click right in the corner this icon, choose System Settings, then you will find Additional Drivers (i do not have the exact translation)12:01
yezariaelyActionParsnip: I am looking for gnome classical, not xfce, kde or something any chances?12:01
jattyou cannot take over the management without shares :)12:02
CarlFKhow do I turn off the login sound? (the one that plays after you have logged in, as the desktop is coming up12:02
jribsl__: "more reliable handling of legacy sysvinit scripts" I'd try to figure out what that means :P12:02
fritschTimLoal: there you can select the nvidia drivers. after successful installation - you have to reboot12:02
[4-tea-2]Anyone else using a SB X-FI audio card with oneiric? Problems?12:02
TimLoalfritsch: nothing seems to be loading from the dock, ahh actually it is juts taking a looong time, pls bare with me12:02
fritschTimLoal: let`s see what works better afterwards12:02
th_CarlFK: there's mute button at top of lightdm login screen12:02
kaolc2yezariaely: I have no clue - don't ask me, I'm just here to rant :)12:02
ActionParsnipyezariaely: there is a fork of gnome2 called 'mate' it isn't developed by Gnome team and isn't official. I suggest you go to XFCE, it runs a lot like Gnome 212:02
erle-how do i get applets in gnome shell? i installed the applets 3.2 package12:03
sl__Yep. I did fair share of Googling before ending here. Because I didn't find anything that really would solve the issue. But I'm sure googling after a while or some update will fix the problem. The trick by ActionS works just fine before that.12:03
TimLoalfritsch: hard disk seems to be constantly active12:03
yezariaelyActionParsnip: I tried it a while ago, but I didn't like it. I am looking for mate, then...12:03
yezariaelymaybe they are in need of a programmer12:03
ActionParsnipyezariaely: could try LXDE too, there are lots of DEs to try12:03
fritschTimLoal: there is no error in dmesg - so first let`s see what happens after driver installation12:03
fritschTimLoal: it is an acer laptop though :-)12:04
TimLoalfritsch: can i launch the system settings from a prompt?12:04
ActionParsnipyezariaely: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/08/gnome-2-forked/    your choice12:04
sl__I do use piping to logrotate, if it could have anything to do with this. Otherwise all configs are pretty simple.12:04
TimLoalfritsch: is that good or bad?12:04
fritschTimLoal: just run gksu jockey-gtk12:04
jribsl__: do any other scripts in /etc/init.d fail?12:04
Semtex‘Mate’ is currently only packaged for Arch Linux users.12:04
fritschTimLoal: sorry, meant: gksudo jockey-gtk12:04
mononofu_does anyone of you know how to change the desktop wallpaper from the terminal? for a cron script12:04
=== mononofu_ is now known as mononofu
Semtexfrom that article12:05
ActionParsnipfritsch: gksu will run too :)12:05
jribmononofu: use gconftool-212:05
jribmononofu: erm, not sure if that's true with unity actually12:05
mononofujrib: the method I use before (using gconftool-2) broke in 11.1012:05
fritschActionParsnip: okay :-)12:05
sl__jrib, nope, not anymore. But used to, because some paths were missing. lock pid paths etc...12:05
ActionParsnipSemtex: thats all I know. I haven't used Gnome extensively for ages now12:05
jattyou can fork gnome 2 but gtk3 is the future so it makes no sense to support legacy code in the long term12:05
mononofujrib: also, I can't stand unity, so I'm using gnome fallback with Xmonad12:06
Semtexno worries12:06
sgs2_usrmy ubuntu 11.10 unity 3d breaks now :(12:06
Semtexcheers for your help anyways12:06
starbrackAnyone knows how to make unity run with bumblebee?12:06
TimLoalfritsch: looks like this might be a slow one till be get this fixed.  Thanks for your help in the meantime :)12:06
sgs2_usri can't resize window with the bottom icon12:06
sgs2_usrbut it works on the top and top sides12:06
sgs2_usrany idea?12:06
sl__jrib, my friends server failed to start sphinxsearch due /var/run/sphinxsearch path missing12:06
fritschTimLoal: does it still not start?12:06
wendicoim sorry to ask this question here, but im in urgent need of a Veterinarian. Any of you is a Vet? How can i connect to a medicine or veterinarian chat? please help me, i dont know how to use irc to find the correct chat12:06
sl__So it seems quite common that some paths need to be created after dist-upgrade.12:07
VIPER-IIgood day to you all.12:07
CarlFKth_: that mutes eveything, right?  (guessing the smile = not really helpful, which is fine.. just making sure)12:07
mononofujrib: nvm, I think I found a solution: http://www.entirelyunlike.net/?p=6612:07
th_CarlFK: it should just mute the login manager sound12:07
kaolc2When I close the lid of my Ubuntu netbook, it automatically hibernates. About 30% of the time, when I turn it back on, all I will get is some weird purple pixels sprayed all over the screen,
