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 !classic00:11

GeneralcamoGuys? How do I fix my laptop's touchpad00:55
GeneralcamoAnd get WICD?00:55
sharkusI'm trying to install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7 on an acer laptop. I am not seeing the option to install alongside Windows 7, only options to replace or something else00:55
sharkusAny ideas why I'm not seeing the install alongside option?00:55
sharkusthis is 11.04 btw00:56
aeon-ltdGeneralcamo: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WICD00:56
GeneralcamoCan anyone help me?00:57
tociasharkus, during the installation it will ask where to install ubuntu, and you need to choose a partion that's not used00:58
yagoosharkus, did u choose "something else" option? see if u can resize ntfs00:58
fweezelis there a way to force a resolution that it thinks it can't do?00:58
GeneralcamoUnable to locate package WICD00:58
yagooanyone knows if ntfs can be resized in the ubuntu installer? (for sharkus)00:59
=== Generalcamo is now known as LinuxCody
scarleosharkus: be careful resize partition with windows on it from Ubuntu, do it from win instead. Windows might get angry00:59
cntrationalWhen logging in, nothing shows up except my wallpaper when booting into either Gnome Shell or Unity. I'm on the Live USB, what do I do?00:59
yagoosharkus, i'm not sure if ntfs can be resized..00:59
yagooscarleo, no it won't..00:59
semitonesyagoo: gparted can\\00:59
LinuxCodyI think it can00:59
LinuxCodyI did it00:59
semitonesyagoo: its included on the cd00:59
sharkusok, am in/on LiveCD and looking at GParter00:59
yagoosharkus, i mean-- i'm not sure if ntfs can be resized with the ubuntu installer-- but it can be with the gparted live cd (sf.net)00:59
yagoosharkus, that's perfect..00:59
LinuxCodyAnd does anyone know how to fix a laptop touchpad on ubuntu Oneiric?00:59
sharkusmain reason for me doing this is Windows is refusing to boot, and it's the wife's lappy and she's had enough of windows so I'm trying for a conversion :D01:00
yagoosharkus, and make 2 partitions for linux-- 1 ext4 and the other swap (swap should be 1 gig)01:00
LinuxCodyI cannot use an external mouse, or my laptop's touch pad01:00
uxat54how can i repair Lightdm on my 11.10 system? it wont work, and gdm is used again..how can i fix this?01:00
yagoouxat54, gdm and lightdm dont run at the same time.. u can only have one gui logon daemon (there's much more advanced setups that let u nways..)01:01
scarleoyagoo: So why this warning: "If you have resized a Windows 7 or Vista partition and cannot boot up windows, you can use the instructions from WindowsRecovery to fix it."01:01
aeon-ltdLinuxCody: yes?01:01
yagooscarleo, use paragon rescue kit01:01
yagooscarleo, do u use a 100mb boot partition for bootmgr ?01:02
semitonesscarleo: just in case something happens01:02
yagooscarleo, how many ntfs are there?01:02
scarleoyagoo: No, I was referring to you saying there is no risk in resizing a in partition from Ubuntu01:02
nronflxOMG what moron designed the UI for 11.1001:02
GeneralcamoAny way that my mouse can be fixed?01:02
scarleoyagoo: I have no problems whatsoever and would never touch a copy of Windoze01:03
yagooscarleo, there isn't .. at least for me there isn't.. I've done this like 20 times.. from XP to Win2008-W2008R2 and Win7.01:03
uxat54yagoo, i want to use lightdm but it doesnt work anymore since i made some updates. Now it looks like the old login screen..do you know how i can fix this?01:03
sharkusok, when I unmount the ACER partition in GParted I see a little red exclamation mark in a circle after /dev/sda2, when I view it it makes mention of a bad sector. I;m guessing that perhaps this might be the reason for a) Windows 7 getting upset, and b) the option to install alongside being missing. Does that sound about right?01:03
yagooscarleo, i'm a master at this stuff.01:03
semitonessharkus: at my linux installfest we repartitioned from windows01:03
GeneralcamoIs there any other way I can get help for this?01:03
semitonessharkus: yeah01:03
semitonessharkus: get a new hdd,unfortunately01:03
scarleoyagoo: great :)01:03
tociasharkus, sounds right for a01:03
tociatry a chkdsk -f01:04
sharkuswill do01:04
GeneralcamoHow can I fix my mouse/touchpad on my laptop?01:04
sharkusguessing new HDD time though, but hey, it's backed up, well, the worthwhile stuff is, Windows, nope, who needs to backup the OS :D01:05
LukeI want to run something when lightdm starts... what's the best place to do that?01:05
yagoosharkus, that acer partition is a dumb recovery filesystem for reinstal windows..01:05
nronflxwtf are this guys doing, we are digressing with each released to pre- win 9501:05
yagoosharkus, u can ignore that..01:05
CharminTheMoosewpa_gui is complaining that I can't write the wpa_supplicant.conf file because I don't have update_config=1 in the config file in /etc, which I do. I'm running both apps (both wpa_gui and wpa_supplicant) as root, but still no written config file. Any pointers as to what I'm doing wrong here?01:05
LucidGuyKVM quesiton:  Attempted a   "virsh save guestname guestname.state"  Seemed like it was doing nothing so I ctrl-D the operation.  The guetname system is now stuck "paused".  I noticed that ksmd is eating up 12% cpu with this only one kvmguest paused.  Could the save still be taking place?  I've tried virsh restart, destroy, and even restarting qemu-kvm with no luck.  GuestKVM still paused and ksmd still eating CPU.   Suggestions?01:05
nronflxthe devs are making ubuntu less and less user friendly01:06
yagoosharkus, btw.. if u do fdisk -l .. it may say cylinder boundary doesn't land etc.. this is common and is safe to ignore..01:06
sharkusyagoo: think it's the actual active partition, as it's 286GB, there is some recovery partition of 11GB,01:06
yagoosharkus, that's fine.. u can leave it there01:06
GeneralcamoI agree01:06
semitonesnronflx: do you have a support question?01:06
sharkusthanks for the help, I'll wander off and bash the thing, sorry, chkdsk it :D01:06

yagoo    BIOS problem, address space collision with IRQs and ACPI trouble. The solution about setting acpi=off makes soundcard and wlan work, but there are some bogus interrupts which will be handled by the wrong device driver. Better solution is to disable parallel port if possible, as BIOS sets it fixed on IRQ 7. Then ACPI (CPU scaling, battery charge indicator, shut down), sound and wlan will01:11

theborgernetWoes: thanks i just had the url wrong.01:34
cajunspiceGeneralcamo, if you can do a "dmesg | more", somehwere in that output it will tell you what kind of mouse linux thinks your touchpad is01:34
scarleobnmorgan: Could you try unplug that extra monitor and logout/login then connect it again?01:34
melhuishjWell, I've tried, but its an LVM partition it seems, so I had to go through a rather annoying process to find the actual partition location, and it still didn't work01:35
ActionParsnipGeneralcamo: try a clean install, may help01:35
bnmorganok. brb.01:35
melhuishjOr did you mean just run mount?01:35
GeneralcamoWhich line?01:35
semitonesGeneralcamo: see if the live media detects it01:35
semitonesmelhuishj: just mount, to see what/wehre it is01:36
unc0nnectedhey everyone, I've upgraded from 10.04 to 11.10 and my machine hangs during the boot sequence.  I can alt-f1 into another tty and when I do the hung boot screen goes on to Starting NetBIOS name server, then does a starting/stopping Mount network filesystems and hands there01:36
melhuishjIt seems /dev/sda6 is not present01:36
GeneralcamoI can't even find it01:36
cajunspiceGeneral, another workaround solution would be plugging in an external usb mouse. just temporarily01:36
GeneralcamoI will probably just run a full clean install01:36
GeneralcamoThanks for the help guys, but I think I will just reinstall ubuntu01:38

yagooaymara, i thought applets are going extinct.. i haven't seen one in like the past 2 years..01:41
yagooaymara, midlets and java servlets are here to stay.. but i don't see a future for applets01:41
scarleobyron: hmmm, what's your GPU and what driver are you using?01:41
Guest46424I am /quit01:42
apparatusThe problem being that I just bought a Crucial m4 64GB version and I'm getting relatively normal read speeds (around 275MB/s) but delivers write speeds of 15MB/s (should be multiple times higher).01:42
aymarayagoo, it's not an applet, it is a software to play dominoes online01:42

unc0nnectedhmm, boot sequence hangs but if I alt-f1 and run sudo service gdm start gnome starts up.. any ideas?01:42
yagooaymara, applets exists as java in a webbrowser.. however that's not the only place java is used..01:42
ActionParsnipapparatus: look into hdparm01:43
apparatusOne other person also had problems with it and complained about it in Crucial's forums and managed to find the answer on his own. This however, was in Windows.01:43
yagooaymara, so i was suprised when u said applet.. i see like no applets on the web other than java apps/servers/cellphones..01:43

coraxxscarleo: I can't seem to find a guide on the subject.  Which is very strange.  On Dia's homepage I found a script that _should_ convert .svg-files to .shape-files ...which is nice as Inkscape is a good tool for creating shapes...however it is not working right :-(01:49
scarleocoraxx: there is a guide here: http://dia-installer.de/howto/create_shape/index.html.en Is thta what you want to do?01:49

unc0nnectedSo I can start GDM manually but the thing still hangs on 'Run system V runlevel compatability' .. think installing lightdm would help?01:52

cajunspicecheekee: does anythng show up in a dmesg ?01:54
cheekeecajunspice: it also says /dvd, /dvd4, /cdrom and /cdrom4 don't exist either even though fstab lists them all01:54
scarleocoraxx: Hmmm, it says: You can also use other tools such as Inkscape to draw your shape, save it in the SVG format and import it to Dia.01:54
scarleocoraxx: Could you share a svg file so I can try to import it?01:54
yagoounc0nnected, looks like there's 2 solutions.. i would try the latter one-> https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=11957801:55
cajunspicecheeke: fstab does n't devices be seen, it only automounts them after they are seen01:55
unc0nnectedI've just set lightdm to be the default and it loads fine, but not gdm01:55
yagoounc0nnected, first solution is part-solution (there's a slight flicker).. maybe more bleeding edge fglrx driver doesn't have this problem..01:55
unc0nnectedyagoo: checking the link now.. thanks01:55
unc0nnectedi thought /etc/X11/xorg.conf was depreciated01:56
cajunspicecheekee: try this "dmesg | more" and then "/sr0"01:56
coraxxscarleo: exactly what I've read ...but it really stinks...both the script and the guide :-) ... how can I send a .svg-file to you ? ..or rather how would you like me to do that ;-) ?01:56

unc0nnectedyagoo: gotcha.. actually I tried completely removing all ati drivers and still encountered this problem01:57
yagoounc0nnected, stop lightdm, X -configure, copy the sample for /root or ~/ (xorg.conf.new) and copy it as /etc/X11/xorg.conf01:57

cheekeecajunspice:  the devce simply doesn't respond or allow me to mount it02:01
unc0nnectedyagoo: just xrandr .. I'll look into that warning now and try to solve that. thanks for pointing that out02:01
yagooxrandr works here02:01
jmwpcActionParsnip: That worked... how is that different than adding it to /etc/modules?02:02
cajunspicecheekee: if you want to eject it, try umount {whatever you mounted it to}02:02
yagoounc0nnected, what warning..02:02
unc0nnectedyagoo: as it shold I imagine.. heh, but mine is not a computer that plays by the rules02:02
yagoounc0nnected, xlog or xrandr?02:02
unc0nnectednothing in my life is apparenlty :)02:02
coraxxscarleo: unfortunately no ...but I was a nice trick you found ..maybe I'm closer to the answer now...so thanx.02:02
unc0nnectedyagoo: xrandr, xlog isn't even installed02:02
yagoounc0nnected, your log shows very good edid pickup and modelines.. so it looks very stable02:02

unc0nnectedyagoo: yea that's what it wants you to think.. it wants to lure you into a false sense of security and then it explodes everything all at once02:03
yagoounc0nnected, i meant the last line -> http://paste.ubuntu.com/712690/02:03
yagoounc0nnected, also what's the output of xrandr?02:03
yagoounc0nnected, xrandr |pasteinit -t xrandr02:03
cheekeecajun it says /sr0 is not mounted according to mtab02:03
yagoounc0nnected, xrandr |pastebinit -t xrandr02:03
unc0nnectedyagoo: it just says 'can't open display'02:04
coraxxscarleo: I think the problem is the requirements of the .SVG-file ...there must be some definition somewhere of how it should be formatted if it should work with Dia...or rather the .shape-file format....I don't think all .svg-files agrees with Dia.02:04
yagoounc0nnected, are u normal user?02:04
cajunspicecheekee: oh, did you mount it as root? or at least sudo'd?02:04

cajunspiceivanBliminse: did you try to burn the same download 3 times, or three different downloads?02:28
ivanBliminsecajunspice, three different downloads..02:29
scarleobluer: You should change line 14 in your fstab paste to what I gave you02:29
cajunspicesounds like a bios problem02:29
ivanBliminsecajunspice, the 11.10 32 bit works just fine...02:29
cheryljosiehello, anyone know what to do when hung at initramfs?02:29
ivanBliminsecajunspice, even though it is a 64 bit system02:30
cheryljosieDo not have a clue where to start. not even a kernel prom.02:30
bluerthanx scarleo02:30
dwarderguys, was anyone able to run this device on ubuntu http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=44002:30
cajunspiceivanBliminse: I'd guess the 64 bit version made some assumptions about what kind of bios it would be dealing with, that aren't true02:30
cjsOh, hm. It's not gnome-panel in Ubuntu-2D in 11.10 any more. What am I using for that bar at the top of the screen, and how do I change it?02:30
ivanBliminsecajunspice, any idea on a way around it?02:30
theborgerwhat is the best or works the best VNC type server for 11.04?02:31
dwarderi am thinking about buying one to work with my ubuntu02:31
cheekeecajunspice: my sr0 is back after rebooting but I still don't see anything in top02:31
bluerwhat about noatime02:31
cheryljosiehello, anyone know what to do when hung at initramfs? where to start looking for the problem? is there an update bug in oneiric?02:31
cjsIs there another place I should be asking these questions?02:32
netWoesActionParsnip: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/resolvconf/+bug/366967 looks like it's still bugging people after all these years02:32
ubottuUbuntu bug 366967 in resolvconf (Ubuntu) "ifupdown-udev integration should be thought-out more thoroghly" [Medium,Confirmed]02:32
cajunspiceivanBliminse: I always prefer the 32 bit versions myself. was it the 64 bit version for your particular kind of cpu chip? (intel, amd, etc)02:32
ivanBliminsecajunspice, I didn't know there were differnt versions.. i wondered about it saying amd.. where do I find the 64 bit intel?02:32
cajunspicecheekee: does a "cd /dev" "ls sr*" show anything now?02:32
cheryljosiewould it be faster to just reinstall and try again?02:33
ivanBliminsecajunspice, does using the 64 bit double your throughput?.. why do you prefer 32 bit?02:33
cheekeeyeah sr002:33
cheryljosiei would rather not reinstall... it took me days to get it all running02:33
scarleobluer: You can add it if you want: defaults,noatime where it says default02:35
cajunspiceivanBliminse: I prefer 32 bit because I have an amd64 where the speed of 32 bit is like 95% of the speed of 64 bit, and 32 bit is much more dependable02:35
cheryljosiehello, anyone care to chat about boot problem? hung at initramfs after update, 11.10 oneiric02:35
Stupendoussteve64 bit binaries use more ram, not much use using 64 bit unless you have more ram than 32 bit supports02:35
tabaxter_A quick query. If I am mid-distribution upgrade, is it possible to hibernate my computer without completely screwing the process? I need to have the computer powered down in the next ten minutes in order for an electrician to work on the property.02:35
cajunspicecheekee: if sr0 is there in your /dev directory now, you can use it to mount discs02:36
Stupendousstevetabaxter_: Got a good back?02:36
ivanBliminsecajunspice, I have Intel i5 ... i'm not seeing a 64 bit download for intel.. do they not make one?02:36
cheryljosiei do believe 64 bit has an advantage if running full disk encryption because of the extra registers...02:36
StupendoussteveivanBliminse: It's called amd6402:36
qmrThe following extra packages will be installed:   pulseaudio pulseaudio-esound-compat pulseaudio-module-x1102:36
cheekeecajunspice: I just tried sudo mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom02:36
qmrWHY.  WHY.  WHY.02:36
qmrI removed pulseaudio for a reason02:36
ivanBliminsestupendoussteve, is that not for an AMD?02:37
StupendoussteveAMD did 64 bit first, Intel copied ;)02:37
StupendoussteveIt is for both02:37
cajunspiceivanBliminse: I don't know02:37
qmritanium is pretty old02:37
tabaxter_Stupendoussteve: not great, no. All valuable stuff is on ubuntuone, but a lot of apps are installed that I'd dearly love to not have to reinstall.02:37
StupendoussteveItanium isn't x8602:37
cheekeecajunspice: and got the message /dev/sr0 unknown device02:38
Stupendousstevetabaxter_: Interrupting the upgrade for any reason is generally a very bad idea. It may come back from hibernation, or you might just find a half broken system02:38
cajunspicecheekee: I'm out of ideas, it should be working02:38
ivanBliminsestupendoussteve, any idea why the 64 bit install version doesn't work? I get "prefix not set", then black screen with what looks like white garbled columns... I've tried 3 downloads, cd,dvd,flash02:38
cheryljosieprefix not set sounds like a ram problem?02:39
darkfearsdoes anyone know how I can get NDAS drivers? running Ubuntu 11.10. Have Flash plugin installed, when using firefox it still says "plug-in not installed" when I am trying to view the driver download section on ximeta's website02:39
qmrHow do I install something with apt without getting pulse audio ?02:40
cajunspicecheekee: have you tried putting the disc in the other drive?02:40
darkfearsso basically i cannot see the link which would allow me to download the NDAS drivers without flash plugin working properly02:40
cheryljosieqmr try another distro maybe... all packages are going to pull in their dependencies02:40
ivanBliminsedarkfears, did you try another browser?02:41
qmrpulse is horrible02:41
darkfearsjust chrome but it didnt work either. says flash plugin is not installed.. but it is02:41
StupendoussteveivanBliminse: You're not doing a wubi install, are you?02:41
ivanBliminsestupendoussteve, nope02:41
tabaxter_Stupendoussteve: Bugger.   If I have no other option, is hibernating the safest available option, or am I better to try a complete shut down/something else?02:41
ivanBliminsedarkfears, msg me the site let me take a lok02:42
Stupendousstevetabaxter_: Is it still downloading the packages?02:42
cheryljosieok well i tried, looks like i do a reinstall, since no one cares to acknowledge my presence.02:42
ivanBliminsecheryljosie, just because noone answered doesn't mean noone cares.. be greatful noone replied instead of people giving bad ifo02:42
cajunspicecherlyjosie, what was your problem again?02:42
linociscohi I have encrypted home folder and since I last change my password, I failed to log in. now I totally forgot all old and new password. how could I do ?02:43
ActionParsnipdarkfears: can you give a PASTEBIN of:  uname -a; lsb_release -a; dpkg -l | egrep 'flash|gnash|swf|spark'    thanks02:43
StupendoussteveivanBliminse: It was a known bug with wubi, I'm not seeing anything about actual installs of 11.10, might try the alternate cd02:43
ivanBliminsestupendoussteve, downloading that now.. my last hope lol02:43
qmrhow can I forcefully install a package ignoring dependencies?02:44
cheekeecajunspice: The blu-ray drive works although it is is strangely labelled floppy0. The problem is that I can't write anything to it.02:44
cajunspicecheekee: that's very strange02:45
ActionParsnipqmr: I strongly advise you DON'T but you can tell apt-get to only download the package, then run:   sudo dpkg --force-all -i filename.deb02:45
jpkhi, quick question:  how do you change the default terminal emulator in 11.10?  when i press ctrl+alt+t, i get one terminal, and i want to use another.  in 11.04, this could be changed in a preferred applications applet somewhere.  i can't find that in 11.10.02:46
ActionParsnipqmr: the whole idea of a package based OS is so that apps get deps met, circumventing this will make you not able to install ANY other packages02:46
ActionParsnipqmr: or updates, or anything02:46
Stupendousstevelinocisco: Did you set up a recovery key in the window that popped up when you first booted?02:47
qmrwell as soon as pulse audio gets fixed get back to me :P02:47
ActionParsnipjpk: sudo update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator      perhaps02:47
ActionParsnipqmr: its fixed02:47
qmrActionParsnip: false02:47
tabaxter_Stupendoussteve: Nope. a half an hour off finishing the install stage.02:47
cheekeecajunspice: stranger still, there is NO floppy0 listed in /dev even though...the blu-ray drive clearly works and is listed as floppy002:47
ActionParsnipqmr: works here so it must be02:47
gantryhas anyone installed a gnome-shell extension from the software center?02:47
qmrI tried playing a game and simultaneously running teamspeak and everything went to hell02:48
tabaxter_Stupendoussteve: I'm tempted to just offer the electrician muffins to hold off for the necessary amount of time, but he appears pretty rushed.02:48
linociscoStupendoussteve: I am not sure , bro02:48
ActionParsnipdarkfears: its a terminal command, run it as one then copy the output. Head over to http://pastie.org  and paste the text there and hit paste, when the page changes. Copy the new address in the address bar and paste that here02:48
cajunspiceit cheekee: do you have an actual floppy drive?02:48
qmrhttp://pastebin.com/RKucHBnp :/02:48
linociscoStupendoussteve: I thought I didn't02:48
ActionParsnipqmr: are you using a Creative Audigy sound card by any chance?02:49
cheekeecajunspice: yes I do, I remember noticing both floppy and floppy0 in /dev, 30 mins ago, now both are unlisted02:50
Stupendousstevelinocisco: Wouldn't be very secure if you could decrypt without knowing any of the authentication details, no?02:50

Stupendousstevetemplet: checked https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LightScribe ?02:51
qmrI see..02:51
cajunspicecheekee: I wish I could figure out your problem, but I'm stuped02:51
templetappreciate it Stupendoussteve02:51
ActionParsnipStupendoussteve: beat me to it02:51
cajunspicecheekee: oh wait, in your /etc/udev directory, do you have a file for persistant cd rules?02:52
=== conor_ is now known as Gskellig
Gskelligmy cursor in ubuntu keeps randomly becoming huge02:53
Gskelligcan't figure out how to fix it02:53
jpkActionParsnip: Hm, that seems to change the terminal that opens when you invoke x-terminal-emulator, but the one that opens with the keyboard shortcut didn't change02:54
cheekeecajunspice: yes I do02:55
ActionParsnipjpk: ok then unset CTRL+ALT+T then make a new shortcut to run x-terminal-emulator and it will work02:56
cajunspicecheekee: /etc/udev/rules.d/persistent-cd.rules might be at fault02:56
cajunspicecheekee: that file controls how drives are named02:56
cheekeecajunspice: It still has my old DVD drive listed so it seems like I have 3 DVD drives02:56
cajunspicecheeke: that's probably whats confusing things02:57
jpkActionParsnip: How do I do that?  The keyboard shortcut applet just lets me change the keybinding for "Launch Terminal", but nothing else.02:57
Gskelligmouse is giant in firefox, normal in xchat, except when i go to click on a link or type in a box, then it gets giant again02:58
cajunspiceGskellig: isn't there a desktop setting that makes the cursor grow when moved?02:58
cheekeecajunspice: it even has entries for my pendrives...If I rename the file will anything go badly wrong?02:59
cajunspicecheekee: don't rename the file02:59
Gskelligcajunspice, I don't know, but that doesn't sound like my problem02:59
ActionParsnipjpk: make a new shortcut, i'm not sure how it's done in gnome but this may help02:59
ActionParsnip!shortcut | jpk02:59
ubottujpk: Keyboard shortcuts can be set in System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts. If your multimedia keys don't work with that, try the 'keytouch' package, explained at http://keytouch.sourceforge.net - See !Keyboard for changing layouts. A list of keyboard shortcuts for Unity is available at http://goo.gl/Pwxq102:59
cajunspicecheekee: make a backup copy of the file, and edit the entries in it02:59

ParadigmUltraUnity keeps losing mouse controls.  I suddenly can't gain focus on any windows.  Can anyone tell me why?03:00

SetiAmonI want to burn my mp3s into a playable mp3 cd for the car,what do i use?thats doable right?03:00
ActionParsnipdarkfears: indeed03:00
dr_willisSetiAmon: yes its doable03:01
cajunspiceSetiAmon: you could use mkisofs to combine all the mp3 files into one iso image, and then burn that03:01
VxQeEverytime I browse an SMB share, ubuntu forgets how to talk networking for about 30 seconds. :/03:02
dr_willisSetiAmon: i use k3b with the mp3 plugin but other apps exist also03:02
SetiAmonLuck i had just installed k3b yesterday03:03
SetiAmonso i can burn/play MP3's and they will play on a modern cd player? I remember back in the day i had to use wav or redbook or something.03:03
SetiAmonbut i can fit all 100 or so songs onto a cd.I wonder if modern cd players can play mp3 DVDs?03:04
cajunspiceSetiAmon: are you talking about a plain old cd player or one that can play mp3 data discs?03:04
SetiAmonman i'm so old/behind03:04
dr_willisSetiAmon: some can03:04
SetiAmonits a cd for a friends car,he drives a BMW so i imagine its a modern CD player03:04
GskelligSetiAmon, just before the ipod became popular, you could buy CD-mp3 players03:04
Gskelligbut not all CD players can play MP303:05
ectabyteIs there a way I can just permanently disable the automute features on alsamixer?03:05
Gskelligonly a few03:05
SetiAmoni have anotehr cd player from the 90's i'm sure wouldn't work03:05
Gskelligand they are clearly advertised03:05
dr_willisSetiAmon: make a data cd and see03:05
cajunspiceSetiAmon: ok, so find out the format of a disc that definitely plays in it, and make one like that03:05
SetiAmoni'll try and burn a single cd03:05

Gskelligask away christopher03:06
christopherU know itunes03:06

christopherHow they have all that music, how come Ubuntu hasn't come out with open source music distributer03:06
cajunspiceGskellig: from your description, it's not random, it's being done to the cursor by the apps you're running03:06
ActionParsnipchristopher: ubuntuone has a music store...03:07
dr_willisit has... ;-)03:07
Stupendousstevechristopher: The red dress03:07
christopherIs it free, open source music03:07
Gskelligcajunspice, i think its the cursor... Multiple apps have similar problems03:07
christopherlet me look into it...03:07
Stupendousstevechristopher: I am sure there are free songs, however open source doesn't mean free in price03:07
christopherI know03:08
Stupendoussteveand music doesn't generally have source code03:08
ectabyteIf I wanted to apply this patch http://us.generation-nt.com/answer/bug-631963-patch-alsa-hda-disable-automute-feature-by-default-help-204087371.html would I copy the text after "Ben." into a file then "patch /path/to/file" ?03:08

ActionParsnipchristopher: there are sites with legal torrents too with music for free legally03:08

Gskelligall I've installed is xchat03:10

cajunspiceSetiAmon: what did you get from your attempt with k3b? a data disc with wave files or an audio disc?03:23
holmescnjaz-dev, thank you.03:24
ActionParsnipPhydo: which wireless chip do you have?03:24
jaz-devholmescn: i take it you are using x64?03:24
SetiAmonit said it was mp3 format etc and i burnt it but the cd in the disk was a wav file.it turned it into a wav instead of perserving the mp303:24
linociscoStupendoussteve:  as I have only one account03:24
PhydoActionparsnip: It's a wnda3100v203:24
SetiAmonI choose audio cd btw03:24
akira_what terminal code allows me to remove pokerstars? it was working then it suddendly stopped- must i remove than re-install?03:24
=== Lance_ is now known as Guest48586
holmescnjaz-dev: yup03:24
holmescnflashplugin64-installer from ppa03:25
cajunspiceSetiAmon: if you chose audio cd, then it converts the mp3 to wave, it has to03:25
Phydoactionparsnip: Driver says "bcmwlhigh6"03:25
Stupendousstevelinocisco: How did you change the password, was it on the command line with passwd or in the gui?03:26
holmescnSetiAmon: choose data disc03:26
cajunspiceSetiAmon: if you want a disc full of mp3 files, you have to burn it as a data disc03:26
ActionParsnipPhydo: may help http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=138370803:26
darkfearsmethinks ActionParsnip some kind of IBM AI .lol. Good multitasker03:26
linociscoStupendoussteve: it was changed using command line , passwd username03:26
SetiAmoncajunspice:  do i have to do anything special to get a CAR cd player to play the mp3's?03:27
ChaosrattHaving an odd issue with a fresh install of 11.10 server and gnome desktop03:27
Stupendousstevelinocisco: That is the cause of your trouble, passwd does not update the encryption passphrase (the gui does)03:27
akira_buy a mp3 player headunit03:27
ChaosrattLoads the logon screen just fine, but when I logon the screen flickers black and I'm right back at the logon screen03:27
Stupendousstevelinocisco: if you know the old password, if you change the used password back to that it should work, or you could update the encryption passphrase but you must know the old password03:27
cajunspiceSetiAmon: if it's a modern player that can handle mp3 data discs, then you don't have to do anything too special. just find an mp3 data disc that you know plays in it, and use the same format03:28
SetiAmonOk so just data disk burning mp3's without any special do dads03:29
akira_a stock car radio 9/10 will not play an mp3 file unless its a new model- anything 5 years or older requires a new headunit03:29
cajunspiceSetiAmon: in other words, find out how it wants the files named, and what iso format it expects03:29
akira_this is completely determined by the brand of car- and what options as well03:29
akira_iso and mp3 files should never be in the same sentence03:30
holmescnMy friend's new car just need a usb stick to play mp303:30
cajunspiceSetiAmon: the key is finding a mp3 disc that you know plays in it03:30
akira_exactly "new"03:30
SetiAmonI'm just burning a data disk in k3b and going to test it out and see if it plays03:30
SetiAmonBRb goin to pop it in and see03:30
akira_you can burn a data disk with any operating system but if your car has a old stock player it aint ganna play unless its *.wav03:31
zappusHello everyone03:31
Gskelligcursors still randomly huge03:31
GskelligI think it has to do with the accessibility settings, but I can't find where to change them03:31
cajunspiceGskellig: which window manager are you using?03:32
zappusis there a way to lock down the left side panel from constantly auto-hiding? in 11.1003:32

cajunspiceGskellig: there should be an accessibility tab03:35
akira_i believe he wants it to always apear03:35
Stupendousstevezappus: You're supposed to be able to change it in compizconfig-settings-manager (ccsm). There is a Unity plugin03:35

holmescnoh, sorry.03:36
cjsCtrl-alt-F7/F8/F9 etc. seems to give me different virtual consoles on which I can run an X server. Anybody know an easy way to have, e.g., lightdm running on two at once, so I could easily switch between two users' graphical environments?03:36

ChaosBringerakira_, how would you search for an app in windows 7? its the same in linux lol03:54
soreauoracle: You most likely need an interface in monitor mode. The easiest way would probably be to install aircrack-ng and run 'sudo airmon-ng start wlan0' which will provide a mon0 interface in most cases03:55
Stupendoussteveoracle: did you sudo wireshark?03:55
oracleStupendoussteve: how do I sudo wireshark?03:55

harshadaHey any idea/link abt installing windows through virtual box inside ubuntu 11.04???04:21
cajunspiceI suppose you could try switching it to the VESA driver, it might help04:21
ActionParsnippurpleyuan: doesn't that need running as user?04:21
Guest50830do you know where to configure the keyboard layout for the login screen under 11.10 ?04:21
arghxActionParsnip: just sa single google https://www.infosecisland.com/blogview/16130-The-Urban-Legend-of-Multipass-Hard-Disk-Overwrite.html for example04:21
Stupendoussteveharshada: Start Virtualbox and it will prompt you04:21
Gskelligwith windows i can switch on the fly between the discrete and the performance graphics cards04:21
ActionParsniparghx: reading04:22
Gskelligthere was some progress being made with support for a similar function for linux04:22
arghxActionParsnip: note on where the info about overwriting comes from...04:22
GskelligVESA driver?04:22
purpleyuanActionParsnip: Er... Actually, I don't know. Gosh, I'm a real noob at all these things. Where would I put something like that?04:22
soreaupurpleyuan: Yes, everything in rc.local will be run as root so do not put user commands there.04:22
cajunspiceyes, ubuntu comes with a variety of drivers for you to choose from04:22
mosnowhat the? "The entire disk will be used: Ubuntu /dev/sda (ext4)" -- since when does a filesystem go on the disk device? shouldn't this read /dev/sda1 or something?04:22

Gskelligwww.martin-juhl.dk <--- that guy is working on a software called "bumblebee" and "ironhide" which support graphics switching for intel/nvidia graphics cards on linux04:22
Stupendousstevemosno: Badly worded, it will create the partitions04:23
Gskelligcajunspice, its more than just drivers, in order to get it working correctly I need to disable one graphics card04:23
mosnoStupendoussteve, yep, that's my point exactly04:23
akira_yea- the fbi can take 1/4 inch of of your HD disk after you destroyed it with a hammer and ran DDkill - etc etc and still recover data- so point is null if you really want to erase a hard drive you have to make it disappear- SSD are even harder to wipe04:23
arghxmosno: it will make a partition the size of the disk. and you can put the filesystem on the device with no partition04:23
cajunspiceGskellig: there is a file "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" which tells it which driver to use04:23
ActionParsniparghx: i concede, the document is more current and cites well. My mistake. I am now educated :)04:23
soreaucajunspice: That is not necessarily the case with recent versions of X using open drivers04:23

smwHdale85, you can also use rutorrent frontend for rtorrent04:55
smwHdale85, but I find rutorrent isn't worth the effort of installing when you can use rtorrent strait :-P04:55
soreaumelow01: Well you either use NetworkManager + nm-applet or just use the CLI method since NetworkManager interferes with anything you will try in terminal04:55

JusticeZeroI dunno. This channel is hit or miss. Usually about 75% of the time people ignore me. Probably because nobody knows but it still sucks.04:56

Hdale85smw, yeah I'm running sabnzbd04:57
TerryAeverything runs fine for a few minutes or untill i start downloading something sizable, them after about 20mb the NIC just dies04:57
cajunspiceTerryA: can you ping?04:57
smwHdale85, sickbeard?04:57
soreaumelow01: NetworkManager is the underlying program that manages your network interfaces and which nm-applet uses04:57
TerryAnope, cant ping either04:57
Hdale85smw, no not currently is that a torrent client?04:57
smwHdale85, it is offtopic in this channel but you may want to check out #sickbeard04:57
smwHdale85, nop04:57
TerryAi try shutting nown the nic, then restating but no go, cant connect04:57
melow01soreau, ok04:58
soreaumelow01: Can you pastebin your /etc/network/interfaces file to pastebin.com?04:58
cajunspiceTerryA: what kind of lan/cabling situation?04:58
Hdale85smw, awesome they support nzbsrus haha going to have to set that up.04:58
soreaumelow01: Typically something is wrong in that file when it says device not managed04:58
Hdale85smw, well thanks for the help, I think I'll setup rutorrent it looks pretty nice04:58
TerryAall 3 are on cabled 10/10004:58
smwHdale85, I like nzbs.org and nzb.su :-)04:58
|ntegra|I'll just go try that then04:59
akira_tons of ? are asked and tons of ? are answered- no one ignores questions here- this a gods bank for all answers04:59
smwHdale85, join us in #sickbeard :-)04:59
akira_only thing you wont find here is the answer for why the seed for the tree of life was planted...04:59
TerryAsorry, i cant whisper, im using a webclient and dont have the options04:59
cajunspiceTerryA: after the net dies and you can't ping out, does your hub's activity lights indicate that the hib sees the ping attempts?05:00
stephniwhats the eqivalent of task manager in ubuntu?05:00
TerryAi'll check05:00
akira_system monitor!05:00
akira_soreau just taught me this05:00
JusticeZeroakira: Unfortunately I often have the questions that people give up on and stop answering me. Right now i'm trying to figure out if I can roll back eight days of general updates - since something broke things and I have no idea what.05:00
cajunspiceor "top" command05:00
wereveralternate iso for ubuntu 11.10 can be installed on a live boot usb by the same way that normal iso?05:00
soreauakira_: I didn't say anything about system-monitor05:00
melow01soreau, http://pastebin.com/Ts4mjXsb05:01
akira_X.X it wasn't that term but you fixed my problem05:01
JusticeZeroI don't even know what they were - just that it was sometime between this afternoon and Monday of last week.05:01
cpgocajunspice, its mounted with ntfs-3g and doing a chown has no effect. I can only change owner by mounted the driver with uid/gid= in options but I only want a certain folder as that user/group and the rest as something else. Not possible?05:01
stephniplease does ubuntu have a task manager like in windows?05:02
stephnito see running progs05:02
akira_type system monitor05:02
JusticeZeroSteph: Try 'system monitor'05:02
TerryAok, just tested it, YES the hub and nic lights do flicker with the ping attempt, but i get no response... and it seems to happen after 19mb every time...05:02
soreaumelow01: You need to comment everything but the first two lines05:02
akira_you can't roll back stuff- if you mucked something like all things- need to start fresh05:02
akira_for justice...05:03
melow01soreau, ok...05:03
soreaumelow01: Then try 'sudo service network-manager restart' to restart networking05:03
wereveralternate iso for ubuntu 11.10 can be installed on a live boot usb by the same way that normal iso?05:03
cajunspicecpgo: only the files you change would get a changed ownership, but you might not be able to do that from linux.05:03
akira_at least with ubuntu its like 20minutes install and 20secs to boot05:03
soreaumelow01: and possibly 'killall nm-applet; nm-applet --sm-disable & disown' to restart nm-applet05:03
JusticeZeroVery annoying to have maintenance updates break programs. :p05:03
cajunspiceTerryA: so the problem is in the receiving ... are you running half-duplex or full-duplex?05:04
tioxUbuntu 11.10 AMD64, I am trying to create a custom X session where Avant Window Navigator loads on boot with compiz.05:04
akira_i would assume linux is like windows recovery- a root system written and re written never works as well as a system that was written once and turns the pages- now im no programmer or a logistical user of linux05:04
akira_im just trying to apply general application here-05:04
akira_to life- etc05:04
tioxI modeled My session after gnome-fallback, and it just frozed on me. Am I doing something wrong?05:04
akira_all seems to always follow the same bill05:05
akira_my old geek friends used to say- when it doubt reformat05:05
TerryAno idea cajun, its ust standard installs, i havent tinkered with anything like that05:05
tioxakira_: Then they weren't geeks.05:05
JusticeZeroDunno, i'm willing to take the chance though. Mind you, i'm more and more likely to actively disable my security etc. updates after this.05:06
xanguaakira_: doesn't sounds like geek ;)05:06
cajunspiceTerryA: the update might have switched the default for the ethernet cards to full-duplex, which is only fine if oyu have a compatible full-duplex hub05:06
TerryAhow do i check the setting full vs half?05:06
akira_:P well you muck something up in a written format allbeit windows or linux a tree is a tree05:06
llutzTerryA: ethtool05:06
akira_onces the branches are cut down the stem usually dies05:07
tioxI've used the new settings network manager came with when I updated and had no problem.05:07
soreaumelow01: Anything?05:08
cajunspiceTerryA: trying to run full-duplex on a half-duplex lan will do just what's happening to you, things will run great for a little while05:08
FlynsarmyWhen I hide a window to the system tray (such as banshee or pidgin) and reshow it, its position always changes back to left of my second monitor. how do I get it to stay where i left it before i hid it? 11.10, gnome classic05:08
JusticeZerosoftware isn't botany05:08
akira_or "root" rather05:08
TerryAifconfig doesnt show anything about duplex, installing ethtool now05:09
akira_we are all 0's and ones- from mother nature to this discussion05:09
akira_can't change principality05:09
simple_usersudo mount -t nfs ~/Mounts/Movies is failing in oneric.  Worked fine in natty, and another box on the network has the share in it's fstab with no problems05:09
JusticeZerogenetic fallacy05:09
TerryAoops, no im not, gotta reboot first05:09
Flynsarmygot it. disabling 'place windows' in ccsm did the trick05:09
JusticeZeroIs there a way to find out what packages were updated?05:10
akira_well you have two choices- you can spend 6weeks here complaing of the questions you have that keep getting ignored or back up your work and be fully functional in 35minutes- really the choice is yours05:10
computer_JusticeZero, sure just go to the Ubuntu Software Center and click on the "History" option05:11
JusticeZeroyes but I would need to re-acquire a copy of 10.04 xubuntu and also get xfce and a few other things... and I can't even find out what updates are needed from here.05:12
TerryAok, got ethtool installed, how do i use it to check the duplex setting?05:12
akira_you can find open source networks for any ubuntu dl... google.com05:12
simple_usernfs mount is not working. anyone have experience with this?05:12
llutz  TerryA ethtool ethX05:13
=== tum is now known as Guest99449
JusticeZeroergh. I'm not seeing a 'history' button.05:13
T-CoHello all. I read that there is this great thing called sni-qt in 11.10 which will make systray icons as indicators... However my Skype icon is not shown at all now. Any pointers?05:13
TerryAok its set to full duplex05:13
cajunspiceTerryA: try setting it to half-duplex then05:14
JusticeZeroakira: The problem is not in locating the software. the problem is in the hour long bicycle ride round trip to campus to get to a network that is stable.05:14
melow01soreau, 'sudo service network-manager restart' <-- That did it!05:14
melow01soreau, After I commented out the extra lines05:14
soreaumelfy: Took you long enough ;)05:14
akira_well then- let me tell you this- i have been there- done that- without a bike05:14
melow01soreau, thank you05:14
soreaumelow01: No problem :-)05:14
akira_and it turns into 8+hrs05:14
akira_walking... with your life on your back05:15
akira_so i feel ya05:15
cpgocajunspice, well whatever I needed is actually working now/ thanks for the help05:15
akira_but a bike ride is good for your health ;)05:15
melow01soreau, I copied some of the commands you just told me to run into the /etc/network/interfaces file for future troubleshooting05:15
JusticeZerook, found the history, it was in Synaptic.05:16
TerryAlol, and how do i set it? and will it be permanaent or will it revert on the next reboot?05:16
Gskellighow do i remount the root partition in grub2?05:16
melow01soreau, So, if I want to change that file from the command line, I should turn off NetworkManager?05:16
soreaumelow01: right..05:16
Gskelligwhat I'm about to do might mess up my booting05:16
soreaumelow01: Since you're interested, I personally ditch NetworkManager and nm-applet in favor of CLI network configuration05:17
Gskelligneed to make sure I can fix it05:17
cajunspicellutz knows more about ethtool than I05:17
JusticeZeroNow how do I roll them back? Do I have to do them one at a time and type them in or some such?05:17
melow01soreau, Well, I'm trying to get better at CLI so I'm trying to migrate in that direction05:17
BsimsOk give me a reason to upgrade when the last version has the newest kde and I know the existing bugs with it05:17
wereverhow can I install ubuntu from alternate cd?05:17
llutzTerryA: sudo ethtool -s eth0 full05:18
Bsimsmelow01: I do quite a bit from the cli, what are you trying to do?05:18
llutzTerryA:err, half, sry.    "man ethtool" for more options05:18
melow01soreau, What would be the CLI method of connecting to WiFi if I don't know the ssid... like at a new cafe?05:18
melow01Bsims, thanks... but soreau already fixed my network issue05:18
wereverhow can I install ubuntu from alternate cd? please help, I just installed this iso on a flash memory and I cant start05:18
JusticeZeroBsims: better driver support and various similar infrastructure type things? Assuming you are already dealing with/abandoned the latest kde version?05:19
melow01Bsims, just asking some follow up questions05:19
soreaumelow01: For wired, usually 'sudo dhclient eth0' will suffice. For wifi, it depends on the encryption type. For open you can use 'iwconfig eth1 essid <ap-name>', wep use 'iwconfig eth1 essid <ap-name> key <key>' and for wpa(2) use wpa_supplicant. In any case, you'd follw the config command with dhclient eth105:19
JusticeZerowerever: What are you doing to start with the flash memory? What's it not doing?05:19
Bsimsmelow01: no problem, I would suggest using gnu screen, it turns any terminal into basicaly a tabbed version and it works over ssh05:19
JZApplesWhere are the Unity configuration files in 11.04?  Particularly the Unity launcher shortcuts?  I was trying out 11.10 with a live CD and when I reboot back into my regular OS the filesystem isn't mounted and a README.txt file tells me to execute ecryptfs-mount-private.  The second time I tried the live cd and rebooted, Unity didn't start and all i could see were my desktop icons.  I ran unity --reset but now all my shortcuts05:19
JZApplesin the launcher are gone and the stock ones are there.  Just curious if there is a configuration file for this that can be copied from my old backup.05:19
soreaumelow01: To try these, you'd want to 'killall nm-applet' and 'sudo service network-manager stop' to allow you to have full control over your network interfaces05:20
JusticeZerowerever: (Because while i've never installed with alternate, i HAVE had to troubleshoot a usb memory bootup before..)05:20
werever<JusticeZero>after boot I have a menu with RUN UBUNTU FROM THIS USB, INSTALL ON A HARD DISK, ETC, I choose 1rst or 2nd option nothing happens05:20
melow01soreau, And I would search for an unknown wifi ssid by using 'sudo iwlist eth1 scan|grep -i essid'?05:21
TerryAok, tried "ethtool -s eth0 duplex half" and got operation not permitted - not setting duplex05:21
soreaumelow01: sure.05:21
cajunspiceTerryA: you need to be root05:21
JusticeZerowerever: Hrmmm... I've never seen that one myself..05:22
TerryAi am05:22
TerryAshould i put sudo infront?05:22
melow01soreau, When I entered the key next to iwconfig, does it get sent over the internet in plain text? or encrypted?05:22
harshadahey i want to install virtualbox with windows inside ubuntu 11.04 any idea??05:22
llutzTerryA: not if you are root already05:22
soreaumelow01: WEP is really completely insecure so it doesn't matter anyway..05:22
werever<JusticeZero> I just trying to to this http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2011/05/10/how-to-install-ubuntu-11-04-on-an-encrypted-lvm-file-system/05:22
akira_need web32 if you want century encryption...05:23
cajunspiceTerryA: if ethtool won't do it, you can always try hand-editting the config files05:23
melow01soreau, Ahh.. interesting, didn't know that05:23
wereverhow can I install ubuntu from alternate cd? please help, I just installed this iso on a flash memory and I cant start to install, is something different VS normal ISO?05:23
TerryAi should be root, but it now accepted it with sudo, but it still says its full duplex05:23
BsimsTerryA: ubuntu doesn't do root it does sudo05:23
soreaumelow01: There are more advanced wifi tools and utilities in the aircrack-ng suite.. and more info on their website at aircrack-ng.org05:23
llutzTerryA: "whoami" if you don't know who you are05:24
melow01soreau, ok, got it. thanks for the help and the theory.05:24
TerryAok, so i sudo'd it and it accpted the command, but doing ethtool eth0 again still shows it as full duplex05:24
akira_a simple pw "pop:)!" takes centuries to crack- its not the pw its the suffixes05:25
soreaumelow01: Not a theory.. but that would depend on what you're referring to05:25
wereverplease help how can I install ubuntu 11.10 from alternat cd using a usb flash memory?05:25
Gskellighow do i remount the root partition in grub2?05:25
melow01soreau, ok, well, the explanations05:25
JusticeZero...Why do you need the hard drive to be of that particular type (encrypted?)05:25
cajunspicemight require a reboot05:25
soreaumelow01: There's a lot to learn. But to make it easy in a work situation, just use nm-applet>configure interfaces (or whatever it's called when you click it) to set a static IP instead of DHCP05:26
JusticeZero<-- dubious of that website's claim that you will not take a performance hit from encrypting the entire hard drive that has the OS on it05:26
computer_Oh JusticeZero are you flying no GUI style?05:26
akira_you will take a hit05:27
reisioJusticeZero: noticeable?05:27
akira_if hd is encrypted performance wise05:27
JusticeZeroI'm using the standard (not ubuntu) xfce.05:27
akira_if its heavy05:27
melow01soreau, True, I've been doing that for years but I'm trying to force myself to become comfortable in the CLI environment05:27
reisioJusticeZero: not actually used Xubuntu's Xfce so I'm curious — what's the difference?05:27
JZApplesEncrypting the OS hd has a performance hit.  Makes sense.  Didn't know that.05:27
melow01soreau, baby steps05:28
soreaumelow01: Ok, well just know NetworkManager will interfere with what you try to do on CLI05:28
JusticeZeroThat's what i'd think, which was why I was trying to figure out why werever wanted to install Ubuntu onto an Encrypted LVM format partition..05:29
computer_JusticeZero, /var/log/apt contains a history of package installations05:29
JusticeZerocomputer: The same as the list on synaptic history I assume? So how do I start undoing the update?05:30
akira_with no real known hackers and almost 0 virii on linux- not totally sure why you would feel the need to encrypt unless someone else has access to the drive05:30
reisioviruses :p05:30
reisiothere are plenty of crackers, though05:30
reisiobut not letting sshd run will keep you away from most of that05:30
cajunspiceany linux with pre-version 4 mozilla has a back door05:30
akira_yes- plenty but unless you use open wifi networks...05:30
reisioI'm just saying, you said there were none :p05:31
akira_i said virtually 0 :P05:31
reisioyou said hackers and 0 viruses05:31
computer_JusticeZero, can you start X at all?05:31
JusticeZeroRight - there are probably some valid reasons to install on an encrypted hd but I was unclear whether werever had any of them, and less clear on how the alternate installer would fare any better installing in such an unorthodox enviroment.05:31
reisiothe virus part is essentially true05:31
reisiothe cracker part is not05:31
akira_well why hack a system that very few use? potential gain is minute05:32
reisiokeep your teeth sharp05:32
akira_hackers are everywhere most hackers get employed by the us government after getting caught05:32
reisiobesides you can't know what's on it until you do05:32
JusticeZerocomputer: I'm running my system right now - it mostly runs fine, but the update broke a program I wanted to use.05:32
cajunspicelots of linux users05:32
eshloxsomeone have idea why i cant connect to sftp with kdevelop/krusader (permission denied) but using console sftp its ok? ;-S05:32
reisioJusticeZero: which'n?05:32
JusticeZeroSomething in wine. (Cue the groaning I know.)05:33
cajunspiceTerryA: any luck?05:33
akira_keep your teeth dull and your fangs sharp ;)- how you get away with things...05:33
qinnshi , somebody can tell me how i can close the radio in linux ? my friend was living like this and it is bad music05:33
computer_From my experience unless you have very good practice for implementing encryption things can go very bad very quickly05:33
computer_JusticeZero, so you can run synaptic from the bash?05:34
jdjbmedinahello can someone help me out with my graphics card issue05:34
supyodo you guys prefer ubuntu or joli os?05:34
computer_jdjbmedina, maybe05:34
reisioqinns: you'll have to identify its process/name/icon first05:34
JusticeZeroI dunno, I just ran it from the menu.05:34
jdjbmedinai guess maybe is better than no05:35
llutzsupyo: we prefer no polls here05:35
melow01soreau, got it. that helps a lot.05:35
commiewhats your graphics card issue05:35
akira_i prefer spending my entire life -f ubuntu to work :P05:35
computer_jdjbmedina, we would have to know the nature of the GPU issue better such a question could be answered05:35
soreaumelow01: Another great resource in ##networking. I don't think I've found one to stump those guys yet ;)05:36
almoxarifehow do increase the workspace count from the default 4 to 6 in unity?05:36
computer_JusticeZero, okay so you have GUI, got it05:36
soreaumelow01: s/in/is05:36
commieyou should run 16 workspaces!05:36
DekeI think the video card guy disconnected05:36
akira_why you should never run duel vd cards onboard...05:37
JusticeZeroyes, I have most everything. it's just that it managed to break wine somehow by me doing my maintenance updates, and that is an annoyance.05:37
computer_JusticeZero, well in that case run synaptic package manager and go to "File->History"05:37
JusticeZerocomputer: Done, open05:38
computer_ And there you can look through the updates and remove any suspect offenders05:38
JusticeZeroThat's actually the problem, they all LOOK harmless.05:39
computer_JusticeZero,  When do you do the updates?05:39
JusticeZeroAbout once a week or so I bring the netbook in with me to campus so i'll have a stable network.05:40
reisioqinns: could try lsof /dev/snd/*05:40
akira_the harmless looking are usually the most dangerous :P05:40
computer_JusticeZero, cool but when was the last time you run the update05:41
akira_im sorry i wish i really could help you- but im faded- and im a novice on linux- just an old dos junkie and a computer nerd who used to love microsoft05:41
JusticeZeroI just pasted the log to you. Commit Log for Tue Oct 18 21:04:25 201105:41
akira_i broke my wine too- but i fixed it- dunno how you broke yours05:41
melow01soreau, huhm interesting... what's s/in/is?05:42
cajunspiceWell, good luck TerryA, I'm in need of sleep05:42
JusticeZeroBefore that was Commit Log for Mon Oct 10 14:18:18 201105:42
akira_well i didn't fix it- this chan fixed it.05:42
MrSassyPantswhat's with spamassasssin randomly working and then no longer again? (postfix/dovecot/amavis/spamassassin setup)05:43
qmrwhy is pulse audio default again?05:43
soreaumelow01: Well I made the mistake of typing 'in' where I meant 'is' so I used a common sed nomenclature (]a program designed for text substitution)05:43
MrSassyPantsI mean, after a reboot, spamassassin doesn't seem to do anything anymore05:43
Gskellighow do i remount the root partition in grub2?05:43
D_Russhow do i get the previewer to work on the sidebar in unity. i had this in 11.04 and cant remember how to do it in 11.1005:43
melow01soreau, ok... but I'm still confused on what that is05:43
JusticeZeroBecause Canonical thought that if it got love, it would be better than the commonly used programs.05:44
MrSassyPantsoh, that's avahi05:44
akira_love = 51dollars a week05:44
soreaumelow01: For example if I said 'The bokk is blue' and I meant to type 'book', I'd use s/bokk/book to denote correction05:44
akira_child support05:44
akira_:P sry im done05:45
akira_really im gone.05:45
melow01soreau, ohh... that's notation for corrections? I'm not hip to that jive man.05:45
soreaumelow01: In terminal: 'man sed' ;)05:45
melow01melow01, Ahh.. isn't that the way to correct text in vim? I'm learning vim too05:46
computer_JusticeZero, I say this because if you know the date you updated when things got all broken you can uninstall all things installed on the date05:47
soreauI'm not familiar with vim05:47
JusticeZero*looks* I do have to admit that I have no sympathy for anyone making software of that type complaining that the problem is other programs misbehaving. Since 'working in spite of other programs flakiness' is the main job of the daemon in the first place.05:47
melow01soreau, all good, not important05:47
soreaumelow01: It's a way to correct text from CLI. Usually useful for large corrections or substitutions in source code05:48
yagoothere a way to alias two ethernets (eth0, eth1) ? (both are the same chipset but have different busids) .. can't seem to find this information05:48
reisiomelow01: one way, yes05:48
JusticeZeroRight, I can uninstall it but does that roll it back or just make a hash of everything?05:48
melow01soreau, got it. Ya, I vaguely remember learning that someone along the line.05:48
yagooi think i found something05:49
computer_JusticeZero, and then if you are really keen you can run the update manager once again only this time install them one at a time and check each time if wine brakes05:49
melow01reisio, thanks05:49
spvenskohi, does this (http://pastebin.com/qymdELgi) mean all of my RAM is used up?05:49
JusticeZeroplus, 'how to uninstall/roll back said packages' is sort've the problem.. yeah and if I had a real internet here I probably would.05:49
xc0ffeehey guys.. how do I set 'No proxy' field in ubuntu 11.10?.. 'Network' application doesn't seem to have the option to set 'no-proxy'05:49

ghabitSo, i have one last question ^)06:58
yagooghabit, what does ~/.dmrc say ?06:58
yagooghabit, ~ means home.06:59
tioxMight be better to copy the entire /etc/apt folder.06:59
kickingvegasActionParsnip: also seems to be cycling through the sectors06:59
tioxExcept for the .gvfs file of course, since it won't let you, root or not,.06:59

ghabityagoo, session=gnome-shell06:59
yagooghabit, it does?06:59
yagooghabit, mine says gnome-fallback06:59

robertzaccouryagoo: the log is empty07:00
brandonphp files on newly installed lamp are wanting to save or open.. like a download.. what did i forget?07:00
ghabityagoo, I have changed 'ubuntu' to 'gnome-shell' @ /etc/lighdm/conf and now I am booted @ gnome. gnome-fallback means like gnome2 afaik.07:00
yagooghabit, ls -la  /usr/share/xessions07:00
ActionParsnipkickingvegas: I've only used it a few times on usb flash when my dumb friends balls up their data and have no backup. No where near that size07:00
yagooghabit, hope that gives a hint07:00
kickingvegasActionParsnip: ok thanks07:01
phizohow to check usage consumption etc; i remember it was a command it showed the % of processors07:01
ghabityagoo, how do you think - what is difference between gnome-classic and gnome-fallback? ^)07:01
tioxFor those yet to update, do the following: Make sure if you removed ubuntu-desktop, to install it, and resolve all depends errors. Then, log out and press Ctrl+Alt+F2, log in and do sudo apt-get do-release-upgrade as to avoid all the GUI issues you may encounter doing it from the GUI.07:01

jfb_h20tiox, yagoo, if I use dpkg --get-selections > installed, then edit installed only to have a subset of what I installed and know about, can I use dpkg --set-selections on my fresh install?

DDRCan't move it to the bottom? :(07:22
tioxBut, if you install Avant Window Navigator, and figure out how to make a custom X session with it (like I've been trying to do), then you can, in theory, use it instead of Unity.07:22

`marianne`Arnold, the gnome applet? i have it running on my netbook, though it has no options based on heat... and it's my desktop (which runs fluxbox) that keeps reaching concerning temperatures09:08
llutz_shomon: but mutt should read those files, thunderbird... i doubt it09:08
computer_MonkeyDust, do you persistence?09:08
stephanemagnenatIs there a way to specify a key to backportpackage, or a way to directly backport a package using on launchpad?09:08
shomonmutt just said "not a mailbox"09:08
Arnold`marianne`, are you also running a different operating system on your computer? Or it's just Ubuntu?09:08
`marianne`Arnold, the desktop (the one i'm concerned about) is just ubuntu, the netbook is triple booted with haiku and windows, too09:09
ojiiis there still on way to downgrade ubuntu? Half of my boots fail, unity2d is the only thing I can get to boot (barely though), as of this morning sound completely broke, unity dash doesn't show apps anymore (only files), ...09:10
JudgeMeanEYE: Thank you!09:10
CantWinnojii, I could be wrong, but I'm sure the only real way is to back your stuff up, then dust it and re-install 11.0409:11
Siegel-hi. i have a brother mfc-5460cn printer/scanner/fax which i had installed. i upgraded to ubuntu 11.10 and it doesnt work anymore. i dont know if the driver is still installed and only needs to be updated or if i need to reinstall it. how do i check?09:11
ojiiCantWinn, thought so... so I can just try to somehow get *some* work done until they eventually fix it... great...09:12
ojiinext time i'll wait 6 months with the upgrade09:12
Siegel-anyway i downloade the drivers, but when i tried to give the first command to install the driver this is what happened:09:12
CantWinnojii, From my understanding it's to do with the Gnome3 and not so much Ubuntu09:12

deej1976ojii, did you try a live CD, a fresh install of 11.10 might be better than an upgrade09:13
ojiiCantWinn, do I really care? They bundled a release.... Never had issues with ubuntu upgrades before, they always went super smooth, with 11.10 all hell broke loose09:13

Siegel-i must say that last time i did this, i had the same problem because i didnt type the correct driver name. the name i typed is what its called but my friend gave me a slightly different version of that name and it worked.09:14
deej1976Lots of stuff changed under the hood in this release, give a live CD ago09:14
CantWinnojii, Yeah, a lot of people have been having issues.09:15
coz_celltech,  well  ... not sure what your system specs are that may be causing 11.04 to be running slowly09:15
CantWinncelltech, that depends on your system, and what you need.09:15
celltech11.04 is just a ram hog09:15
ojiiCantWinn, my point. it's sad how this upgrade is really not that good compared to previous ones :(09:15

Siegel-Brother mfc-5460cn, cant seem to install the driver after upgrade to ubuntu 11.10. i tried the first command and got an error. here is a link http://paste.ubuntu.com/712995/09:16
celltech512 should be plenty. XP ran flawlessly on that and I could multitask09:17
coz_osmosis_paul,   well you could open the home directory,, ,ctrl + h.. to show hidden files,, open the .config folder   delete all compiz related folders and then restart compiz or log off and back on to see if that makes a difference09:17
coz_celltech,   I agree to a point... are you on Unity or classic no effects session?09:17
dc5alam4k, check /usr/share/php09:17

Siegel-CantWinn:  im following the instructions from the brother site09:18

CantWinnSiegel-, What is your system? 64? 32?09:20
celltechgood point.. I see your point on that09:20

scarleo!notunity | lyrae09:37
ubottulyrae: 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 !classic09:37

freshinstallJonny, the nature of voip is that the pbx just does the connections - kinda like a matchmaker - then the media, the actual conversation goes direct between clients, so the pbx doesn't need to be terribly fast or have that much bandwidth, as the calls aren't going through it.09:52

freshinstallJonny, try asterisknow - with an old junk PC works really well - you need a bunch of voip phones or ATAs (analogue telephone adapters) to play with it much though - although softphones installed on PCs will work09:53
barzan_scarleo, the rescue broken system also dont work09:53
CantWinnSiegel-, Give it another go after the update, then try to add printer again.. that should work. Also see if you can update cups from your update manager. I'm sorry to take off but I have work soon and I got to go.09:54
freshinstallJonny, but be prepared to spend a year or more mastering it ;-)  I'm glad I did, got a killer phone setup at home now, but it's a long haul09:54

I've done a Google search, and see that quite a few others suffer from the same problem.  The problem resides with apparmor, and it's policies with mysql. The error is as follows:11:09
tindook thanks.. how do i install xfc?11:09
tolecnalapparmor="DENIED" operation="mknod" parent=2968 profile="/usr/sbin/mysqld" name="/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock" pid=2969 comm="mysqld" requested_mask="c" denied_mask="c"11:09

lunitiktindo: again, I told you... sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop-settings or just xubuntu-desktop11:09
lunitikcomputer_: gnome2.011:10
tolecnaland according the apparmor man page, a confined process can't execute commands such as 'mknod' which mysql does when it starts up11:10
tindosorry lumitik i've got like 3 things going on at the same time and i missed it again11:10
tolecnalthus, it can't create the socket, failing to start up mysql.. does anyone have any pointers on how I am to proceed?11:10
computer_lunitik, oh sure, I am cool with that11:10
lunitiktolecnal: read about how to add an allow value for the same11:11

computer_I will just be patient and make do in the meantime11:12
tolecnallunitik: I've read the man pages, and read the wiki entry on apparmor, and none give me any indications as to how I should allow this11:12

tolecnallunitik: I've read that, and I got to admit that it hasn't exactly made me wiser. I could disable apparmor for mysql alltogether, but as the idea behind apparmor is one that actually is sane, I'd rather not disable it (even if it's only for mysql)11:20

lunitiktolecnal: no, just the rule that it isn't permitting atm... you should be able to edit that... the config should show tools to do so, and the actual files involved11:21

jribtolecnal: I don't know if it's related, but did you follow the release notes suggestion regarding apparmor for upgrades?11:23
Rods_TigerHow do I get it to show me the apps folder, so that I can then add an app so that it will start up with it?11:23
lunitikRods_Tiger: "/usr/bin" enter11:23

Rods_TigerI want to use the startup applications to add an app, but there's no apps visible to click on11:24
tolecnallunitik: well, /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.mysql has this (http://pastebin.com/XLC7dFR4), which I understand is permissions which are permissive. And the paths are correct, yet I'm getting errors. And *again*, the man page states that confined processes can't use system commands such as 'mknod'.11:24

Sawtheadmin - it's all virtual machine one disk, so no. But from some reason it's empty. I do know the command exists though, using 'ls -R | grep passwd' find some results, I'm just not sure where..11:59
AnarashaMonkeyDust - Okay, what now?12:00
mrwizeguy1983MonkeyDust, everything i can install under dconf is already installed, any ideas?  is it under dconf editor settings?  i saw something under unity2d called legacy tray, but didn't see anything under unity that was similar12:00
Sawoh, don't know if it's important, but i'm using ubuntu server edition 64bit.12:00
hemzaI'm using ubuntu lucid, now I  want to upgrade to the latest release12:01
rcmaehlUbuntu 11.10 32-bit. How do I remove all the ratings and play counts on a large number of songs in many directories but not any other metadata? Is there a command I run in terminal or a program I can install. I only want to remove rating and play count, absolutely no other metadata do I want to remove.12:01
theadminhemza: You can only upgrade by upgrading to Maverick first, then Natty, and THEN Oneric.12:01
theadminhemza: No fun, really, I suggest a reinstall12:01
mrwizeguy1983ok, thanks for the lead12:02
arfbtwn_is anyone here using Lucid with the banshee-daily ppa enabled? I have it enabled but the version from it shows as 1.9x...12:02
hemzaOk. I know that i want to ask if Oneric work fast like lucid. i'm preparing my PhD and do not want to format my laptop ... theadmin12:03
AnarashaMonkeyDust - Everything in AlsaMixer is unmuted. Which one of them is supposed to be the jack?12:03
Sawtheadmin - ok, I found passwd in /etc/passwd . I can't run it though, it says permission denied.12:03
dr_willishemza:  maybe best to stick with what you got. unless you need the newer features12:03
MonkeyDustmrwizeguy1983: in dconf-editor, choose desktop-unity-panel, find the whitelist, you have to use single quotes12:03
theadminSaw: That's not an executable file...12:04
theadminSaw: Of course you can't run it12:04
llutz_Saw: /usr/bin/passwd, /etc/passwd is the file holding users12:04
varikonniemiwhy does an ubuntu alternate install take so much longer than noemal? i find this disturbing since i want to install to raid, and must use alternate for that, no?12:04
llutz_(more or less)12:04
Sawha, that's right. agrh. I even displayed it before.12:04
dr_willisvarikonniemi:  i cant recall ever seeing it taking longer.12:04
MonkeyDustAnarasha: can't say, it was a mere hint12:04
usr13Saw: You might try and  edit /etc/shadow  go to original user and delete all between first and second colons (:)12:05
sproatyAny idea how to get the windows-like start menu back in 11.10? I've installed gnome-panels-classic and my 'start' menu is split into applications/places - in 11.04 I had a little icon with everything unified12:05
AnarashaEvery bar has the sign 00 on it when unmuted and MM when muted. But PCM doesn't have either one of those, it's simply blank12:05
varikonniemidr_willis, 11.04 took nearly an hour on alternate, under 15 minutes on normal12:05
rcmaehlsproaty: try kubuntu?12:05
AnarashaDo you think that could have anything to say?12:05
sproatyrcmaehl, nah...I'm assuming it's there *somewhere* if it was available in 11.0412:05
hemzaI have some problems with my toshiba A200 laptop, it shutdown suddenly when the processor work hard12:06
usr13Saw: More-than-likely, only the original user has admin priviledges and so that is the one you need.12:06
Sawusr13 - anyway to create new user editing the file rather than editing?12:06
=== Bry8Star_ is now known as Bry8Star
dr_willisvarikonniemi:  could be some bug in the kernel/drivers.. mine was faster i recall.. but now a days. i install from a iso off the first hd.. so my installs are amazing fast. :)12:06
rcmaehlsproaty: yeah with a heck of a lot of configuration file changes and package removals/installs12:06
Sawusr13 - I just want any user, so I can login into my normal shell with all the commands. At least for nwo, anyway.12:06
AnarashaHey everyone :) I have a problem. I just upgraded from 11.04 to 11.10. Everything worked fine on 11.04, but on 11.10, my Jack port doesn't seem to work.12:07
AnarashaWhen I plug something into it, my internal speakers go silent as intended, but whatever I plugged in gives no sound. I run a laptop.12:07
scarleohemza: overheating maybe, are your fans running? Have you cleaned your computer from dust?12:07
AnarashaEverything in AlsaMixer is unmuted except for PCM which doesn't have that option.12:07
rcmaehlAnarasha: define jack port12:07
rcmaehlas in the audio out?12:07
AnarashaThe green, round thingymajig I plug external speakers or headphones into12:07
usr13Saw: I really dont' know why the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword#The_Other_Way  or https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword  didn't work for you.  Did you do exactly as instructed?12:07
AnarashaYeah, audio out12:08
rcmaehlAnarasha: can you screenshot your alsamixer?12:08
AnarashaSure, hold on a sec12:09
Sawusr13 yes. First way didn't work because of the 'Give root password for maintenance'. Second way didn't work because I don't have any kernel in my boot list. Third way is where i'm at now, but there is no passwd utility from some reason.12:09
Dan_EI upgraded to 11.10 and now when I open or try to foward a e-mail or connect to xchat or mostly any other program all I get is a blank white screen?12:09
hemzascarleo, i guess that, and  try to open my laptop to clean the fans, but it is difficult to open it.12:09
Sawusr13 - well, there is one thing. At first I tried editing the 'normal' image (init=/bin/bash) and entering it, but it just didn't run anything after I booted (F10 or ctrl-x). So I did the same fro the recovery mode and used it. I'm there now.12:09
usr13Saw: You don't have a kernel?12:09
smwWhy did ubuntu move /var/run to /run?12:09
smwIs there a reason they choose this?12:10
rcmaehlDan_E: did you check for restricted drivers?12:10
Dan_Eno but how do i do that?12:10
Sawusr13 - it's not listed. there are 4 entries in the list: (1) Ubuntu, with Linux .. (2) same thing, (recovery mode) (3) Memory test (4) Memory test with some extra details.12:10
dabukalamdoes compiz work on lightdm?12:10
llutz_smw: yes, it has to do with tmpfs. long discussion some time ago12:10
alias_lnDan_E:  config your email/xchat12:10
AnarashaRcmaehl - This is my Alsamixer: http://i55.tinypic.com/dxi8f7.png12:10
smwllutz_, link to discussion?12:11
dr_willisdabukalam:  why would it even need to>? :)12:11
Travis-42In Ubuntu 11.10, when I plug in an iPhone it asks me what I want to do for a device with photos (I chose "Do nothing"), and for a device with audio (again "Do Nothing"), but then it pops up a nautilus window with "Documents" on the iPhone. How do I get Ubuntu to do nothing for this too?12:11
scarleohemza: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-1.htm12:11
usr13Saw: Those ARE your kernels.  You have been given adequate information, you just need to sort though it and puzzle it out.  Any more conversation will only cloud the issue.12:11
dabukalamdr_willis, wha?12:11
dr_willisdabukalam:  and yes - it should work with lightdm if it was calling for a window manager.12:11
s1raven: have you tried any of GRUB boot option parameters! .. am not sure what you mean by " loading the release file ".12:11
rcmaehlDisable automute12:11
Sawusr13 - "sort though" ? waht does it mean?12:11
llutz_smw: not off hand, try google. sry12:11
dabukalamdr_willis, oh you mean it has nothing to do with lightdm?12:11
llutz_smw: its not only ubuntu switching to /run12:12
dr_willisdabukalam:  lightdm  is just a special app that runs on top of X.12:12
dabukalamdr_willis, or that lightdm already has those features?12:12
smwllutz_, who else?12:12
usr13Saw: Read, follow instructions.12:12
dabukalamdabukalam, so it didn't replace gnome?12:12
dr_willisand X would be running compiz, or whatever as its wndow manager.12:12
buzzkillI am getting an error 'Could not find the release notes' when trying to use 'update-manager -c' is there another method to upgrade to 11.10?12:12
dr_willisdabukalam:  lightdm replaced GDM.12:12
Sawusr13 - anyway then yes, I did the second way. I entered using init=/bin/bash , and entered. no passwd, as I said. I am getting a few errors at the end, when booting it up though:12:12
rcmaehlAnarasha: then hold on while I look something up12:12
llutz_smw: at least debian12:12
* dabukalam scratches head12:13
Anarasharcmaehl - Thanks mate :) Much appreciated12:13
theadminSaw: Eh, I have an idea here12:13
smwllutz_, ok12:13
theadminSaw: Try this command: mount -o remount,rw /dev/sdXY /12:13
smwllutz_, I found a good explanation12:13
theadminSaw: Where X is a letter and Y is a number, something like "sda1" maybe12:13
usr13theadmin: If he followed the instructions, "change the ro to rw", he would already have it mounted rw, Right?12:15
Sawuser13 - "mount: you must specify the filesystem type". and btw, if I use mount --help to see the options, -o isn't one of them.. i'm gonna try play with it a bit I guess though.12:15
* lunitik wonders when y became a number12:15
hemzatnx scarleo12:15
Sawusr13 - works!12:15
usr13Saw: Not only does that mean that the filesystem was not recognized.... ok got it..?12:16
Sawusr13 - I checked out the options, used 'mount -a' !12:16
Sawnow everything is working :} thx man!12:16
computer_Wow so now I am trying to add my user to the vbox group via GUI and in 'User Accounts' there is no groups12:16
scarleoIs there no way to let the "return from screenlock login" look like the lightdm login? Suddenly everything got so ugly in comparison :)12:16
lunitikSaw: -o should be options... for instance 'mount -t iso9660 -o loop /path/to/iso /some/where/else' would work12:16
AFfoHi I saved a file on a usb stick after waking up ubuntu from suspension, now that file won't open, citing "input/output error". If I cat the file in a terminal, it will display some of the file before finally breaking the cat, saying 'input/output error'12:16
llutz_computer_: sudo adduser user vboxusers12:16
lunitikSaw: allowing you to browse a CDROM in this instance12:16
Dan_Egot it thanks rcmaehl12:17
Sawargh, almost working.12:17
AFfoI don't quite get what use suspend is if it fucks up file saves like this...12:17
AFfoIf anyone has some ideas for recovering this data, would much appreciate it.12:17
Sawnow passwd gives me an error when I try to change password:12:17
Saw"passwd: Authentication token manipulation error" "passwd: password unchanged"12:17
lunitikSaw: just make sure that 'else' is an empty dir12:17
computer_Thanks llutz so you can't do it by the GUI for now in 11.10?12:17
Sawlunitik - I managed to mount all the drives, got passwd now :}12:17
theadminSaw: Okay, do just this: mount -o remount,rw /12:18
llutz_computer_: no idea, i dont use 11.10 and wouldn't ever use a GUI for this ;)12:18
rcmaehlAnarasha: yeah theres a bug report for your card. apparently you're not the only one with that problem with alsa.12:18
theadminSaw: That error is obviously a filesystem write eror12:18
Sawtheadmin - minute, I executed a 'find' command and ctrl-c won't stop it xD12:19
Anarasharcmaehl: Does that mean I should just sit tight and wait for a fix? Or is there something I can do?12:19
klawdhi! i have a VM with ubuntu on it (didn't install it myself) when i go su someuser, it doesn't do anything. anyone know why this oculd be?12:19
rcmaehlAnarasha: you can try a different sound system12:19
theadminklawd: Because Ubuntu doesn't actually use su, you should do this: sudo -u someuser -i12:19
lunitikSaw: sudo -i [enter] ... then passwd username (can add password here or enter and follow the prompt for hashtag typing of password)12:19
plain-userwhat fonts can i use in lirbe office that are similar to georgia or times new roman? or can i install them?12:19
computer_Yar no su in Ubuntu12:19
scarleoSaw: That error has lots of different causes, try google it, some suggest re-shadowing passwords12:19
Anarasharcmaehl: What do you mean by sound system? Software? Or do you mean hardware?12:19
klawdtheadmin: you mean it doesn't use root.. right?12:20
lunitikSaw: my way would just use root instead of the sudo env12:20
scarleoSaw: Ah, saw you solved it, great12:20
