Locus_Asafjay: init.d is a file isn't it?00:00
DasEiblip-: I'm too busy to really go after your issue right now, it's not too hard else to install the right driver, so maybe find your g-card and ask here again00:00
blip-DasEi, np. thanks00:00
shantorn_blip do you kmow what card you have?00:01
jay_why_beelocus_adaf: not it is a directory...  lots of scripts00:01
V13AxelI have a rather odd situation. I just installed Ubuntu 11.04, and now for some reason, my 4.0 surround sound refuses to work. I've gone to Sound Preferences and changed it to 4.0, and made sure that the speakers were plugged into the right jacks, and they are. The main problem is that the master volume only controls the front speakers, the rear speakers are controlled by the ALSA plugin[plugin-container] under Applications, and refu00:01
V13Axelse to be changed otherwise.00:01
Locus_Asafjay: should it be a !#/bin/sh type file?00:01
blip-shantorn, no it's a nvidia card in the laptop, anyway the problem here is that it's a Nvidia Optimus laptop ie 2 graphic cards.  And the official nvidia driver doesn't support this under Linux00:02
NewbeeansI typed the low resolution command....I now have - in blue going down the screen.00:02
jay_why_beelocus_Asaf: sure...  just make the script.  Reboot and test by hand.  Then put it in your init scripts.00:02
shantorn_i have the same system, let me get you what i used00:02
NewbeeansShould I do anthing or reboot?00:02
c03Can anyone help with an aptitude problem?00:02

en1gmaim really wanting to put ubuntu iso on my usb drive but it wants to erase my grub4dos multi-boot options that i already have there....is there any way i can do ubuntu 11.10 iso on my usb stick and still have all the multiboot options i already have?00:03
c03I have tried all the apt-get clean all00:03
c03apt-get update00:03
blip-shantorn, ah ok.  I have a Lenovo T420 btw00:03
c03and -f install00:03
FloodBot1c03: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.00:03
Locus_Asafjay: I'm not familiar with update-rc.d, what is that?00:03
en1gmaif i just do pendrive usb setup i believe it will only have boot option for ubuntu00:03
c03I just write fast FloodBot100:03
c03sorry00:03
en1gmaso i still want to have some kind of multiboot meny so i can select my ISO`s00:03
shantorn_machine doesnt really matter its the optimus thats the glitch, give me 2-3 minutes to get it for you, it worked like a champ for me00:03
blip-shantorn_, great. thanks :)00:04
NewbeeansChannel: should I exit vim?00:04
jay_why_beelocus_asaf : it simply creates the sym links in all the rc#.d runtime directories.00:04
en1gmathere has to be an alternate way then pendrivelinux00:04
en1gmacome on peeops00:04
jay_why_beelocus_asaf: If you know your runlevel,  (say 2) you can just create a link to your script in /etc/rc2.d00:04
Locus_Asafjay: sorry, sym links and runlevels are over my head00:05
Locus_Asafjay: Don't want to be a pest and make you explain too much here00:06
jay_why_beelocus_asaf: in the terminal go into /etc/rc2.d     Then do "ls -l" and you will see all the sym links pointing tho various scripts in /etc/init.d00:06
shantorn_blip- what does the trick is ironhide driver system https://launchpad.net/~mj-casalogic/+archive/ironhide/ go to the bottom of this site and read about natty it works for 11.10 as well http://linux-hybrid-graphics.blogspot.com/2011/08/ironhide-branch-first-release-including.html00:07
=== __mikem is now known as mmiller235
Locus_Asafjay: yes I see that, I see this for example "S99rc.local -> ../init.d/rc.local"00:07
jay_why_beelocus_asaf: cool... so the S is for "start" and K is for "kill"00:08
jay_why_beelocus_asaf: the number is just the order it is executed00:08
en1gmajust msg me...i cant tell if someone has replied to me because im in 4 channels asking same thing00:08
en1gmathis is ubuntu related and no help00:08
Locus_Asafjay: okay gotcha so far00:08
Locus_Asafjay: so how do I set up these sym links?00:09
jay_why_beelocus_asaf: so if you want to link this script to start in runlevel 2.  And you copy your script called "my_portfowd" in /etc/init.d00:09
DasEi1en1gma: you could have an additional grub2 chainloaded by the one in your mbr  to achieve it, take it asa hint, no walkthrough now, installed to a partition, not the mbr for that00:10
c03Can anyone help resolve this: http://pastebin.com/scEu5nvg ???00:10
en1gmayea but the one i have now should already work00:10
Locus_Asafjay: Okay, I have a script that just executes the three iptables commands inside /etc/init.d/00:10
jay_why_beelocus_asaf: you link with the following command: ln -s /etc/init.d/my_portfwd /etc/rc2.d/S99my_portfwd00:10
en1gmai get an error with i try to do it with ubuntu 11.10 about needs to be a continuous file00:10
SeperandWhats the difference in xterm and uxterm?00:11
jay_why_beelocus_asaf: also make sure your script: echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward00:11
blip-shantorn_, I thought there was no solution for this, so this ironhide lets you use only your discrete card on an Optimus system ?  Or it can switch between the 2 cards ?00:12
shantorn_it allows you to switch betweeen them, it defaults to the intel and you start 3d apps with optirun name of app from command line or change shortcut00:13
blip-shantorn_ hmm is this the same thing as the bumblebee project ?00:13
shantorn_the second page is an on going revoltion for it00:13
Locus_Asafjay: That echo should be in the script you're saying?00:13
shantorn_its what bumblebee changed into00:13
NewbeeansI need to set my driver nvidia. How do I increase resolution?00:13
jay_why_beelocus_asaf: yes...  You will need to enable ip_forward on each restart.00:14
Locus_Asafjay: is that what the echo does? I'm a bit confused because I haven't entered that command before, just the two iptable commands and the port forwarding worked00:15
blip-thanks shantorn_ I will try this out00:15
overdubgoogled for "install skype ubuntu 11.10" and got many pages saying to "apt-get install skype" but I get: Unable to locate package skype00:15
overdubanyone know how to fix this?00:15
shantorn_if in doubt google ironhide and read more00:15
shantorn_its an option00:16
NewbeeansHow do I skip Ubuntu screen?00:16
NewbeeansI can't boot past it?00:16
jay_why_beedo a quick: cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward00:16
jay_why_beelocus_asaf: see if it is set to "1"00:16
Locus_Asafno it's set to 000:16

shantorn_sure thing blip-00:18
klslslwhen i open a virtual terminal to try and stop xserver it wont recognise my password says login failed00:18
DasEi1csdb: you can edit /etc/apt/sources.list00:18
Locus_Asafjay: I have glassfish server installed whose default network listener is on 8080, when I load the server on 80 its is successfully redirecting to 8080 so seems to be okay00:18
klslslmeans i cant install nvidia driver00:18
shantorn_did you setup su password?00:18
shantorn_klslsl,00:18
digzMy left click doesn't work in Ubuntu 11.10.00:18
shantorn_are you trying to su or sudo klslsl00:18
digzI'm stuck in the LiveCD, where it does work.00:18
klslsl?00:18
klslslsudo00:18
csdbDasEi1, do you mean to comment all of the other ones out? I was hoping for a more command-line way :-)00:19
shantorn_thats odd the password doesnt work, hmm beets me sorry00:19
jay_why_beelocus_asaf: if you flush your iptables does it stop working?00:19
klslslsudo sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-285.05.09.run00:19
DasEi1csdb: is what I would do, though apt and dpkg have some options like holding certain packages and such00:20
Locus_Asafhow do you flush the iptables?00:20
three18tiwhat do you do when ubuntu docs say  /etc/inetd.conf should have a line in it, but your version of ubuntu doesn't use init scripts?  I feel like I should know the answer but I'm at a loss to explain why tftp doesn't work for PXE boot...00:20
jay_why_beelocus_asaf what all chains are you using?  iptables -F00:20
Locus_Asafjay: nvm I found it00:20
digzanyone?00:21
klslslalso  when login it doesnt work sometimes have to take power line and battery off to start up then nvidia flashes up on screen and it does work00:21
Locus_Asafjay: the flush doesn't effect the forwarding00:21
csdbI have to tell some users how to upgrade just our local debs that are in our local repo and I'm afraid of telling them to go edit the sources.list00:21
Locus_Asafjay: the only thing that messed with the forwarding was doing a restart of the machine00:21
DasEi1Locus_Asaf: sudo iptables --flush00:21
csdbmaybe I'll write an sed script...00:21
csdbis there a way to enable/disable sources via commandline ?00:21
DasEi1csdb: can use nano as editor or move/recreate the list00:22
csdbso that I could "disable all sources but mine; upgrade; re-enable disabled sources" in a script?00:22
DasEi1sure00:22
DasEi1man mv, man echo, man cut, man touch ..00:23
Locus_Asafjay: is there a way to overwrite or delete the ln thing I executed, I think I messed it up slightly00:23
csdbDasEi1, thanks. I'll try to play around with a script that replaces sources.list,upgrades, and then puts back the original00:23
jay_why_beelocus_asaf sure, just "rm"00:24

econdudeawesomeHowdy all. Having a problem getting my printer to print in grayscale since upgrading to 11.10. Tried reinstalling hplip, no change. There is a new "option" too--"color", but nothing is there. ANyone having similar issues?00:26
bfrederiHi, I'm having trouble booting 11.10. I've installed it from scratch, but every time I boot up, it stops around the "Checking Battery state" message. I think it has something to do with the nvidia drivers, but I don't know how to get rid of them.00:26
Locus_Asafjay: not sure why the flush doesn't do anything nor if I need to change the ip4 port forward00:27
econdudeawesomebfrederi: I would get that occasionally. One thing to try is getting into a tty-shell (alt f1 through alt f6) once you reach that portion, and run the command "startx" or "gdm". Then restart and see if the xserver config righted itself00:27
jay_why_beelocus_asaf: It is curious.  I was wondering if you needed it at all...00:28
econdudeawesomebfrederi: if not, at least you have a good idea to start a fix00:28
Locus_Asafjay: that sym link seems to have done the trick00:28
methods1where would i configure things that i use to put into intitab now ?00:28

JoseeAntonioRDasEi1 Thanks.00:31
Locus_Asafjay: thank you very much for your help00:31
bfrederiecondudeawesome: I can install anything from command line. It can't access the repositories for whatever reason.00:31
econdudeawesomebfrederi: interesting. I've had this issue before, but usually running "startx" would do it, or running "gdm" (well, Ubuntu 11.10 doesn't use GDM anymore, so whichever it uses. Let me check).00:31

newkidbut when I tried to run the command, I was told that 'gksudo' isn't installed00:59
Fevernewkid: cant you use vi or vim?00:59
tjiggi_fonewkid, it should be installed by default. If you type: man gksudo into a terminal and get the output from man then it is installed00:59
newkidbut"no manual entry for gksudo'01:00
newkidmaybe that's my issue?01:00

PiranahAnyone else run into extreme network lag after upgrade to 11.10 ?01:01

Daditoshi, I think I screwed up the Unity's/Ubuntu's 11.10 tiling system... Wasn't it supposed to dock windows on the sides when dragged to a border?  How can I enable this?  I reset compiz configuration to default already01:04
newkidthank you fever. usually I'd say I can research it myself but I'm a little lost without a gui in a new ow :O01:04
cmn__matt7879, modern Macs are x86 so you should just be able to pop in the normal disc and press 'c'01:04

Fevernewkid: No probs, if you want you can try to use "nano" instead01:04
PiranahAnyone have a fix or ideas to help with the buggy networking in 11.10 ???01:04
matt7879well i tried that, and got an odd error01:05
Newbeeans_Channel: I went back to 10.4. How do I get my drivers for nvidia? Or do I ignore it since the display is working?01:05
newkidfever: "nano" instead of what? "gksudo"?01:05
Fevernewkid: Its more easy yo use01:05
matt7879I just remember seeing a link somewhere a long time ago for a Mac-specific ubuntu distro01:05
Fevernewkid: no, nano is another terminal text editor01:05
lafonhas anyone used an hsfsoftmodem in oneiric?01:05
newkidfever: got it. so my goal is to run that same command in here?01:06

Piranahnewkid, ctrl x01:08
Fevernewkid: If you look at the bottom of the terminal (program) there is a list of commands. ^ means hold down CTRL. So to save file, CTRL+w and to extit CTRL+x01:09
craigbass1976darius, are there ANY files left when you delete, like hidden directories in /home/yourname ?01:09

PiranahThink I may have to roll back to 11.04 im scouring the forums and not finding a light at the end of the tunnel in terms of the strange network lagg in 11.10. Im not on wifi so that rules out half the answers01:11
FeverThats all for me tonight (german time), see you tomorrow01:11
dariuslafon, apt-get remove skype01:11
newkidThank you for your help fever!01:11
craigbass1976darius, I'm not sure.  ls -a in your home directory and that should show you something.  Maybe a .Skype ? That's what's in mine01:11
Newbeeans_Is there a way to kill frozen tasks?01:11

newkidSo if gksudo isn't installed by default I have a corrupt installation, logical conclusion? I installed this on an old computer, so perhaps ubuntu is referencing the worng disc partition?01:14

Still, if I put the volume only at the right speaker, it mutes the speakers and plays only at the right side of the headphone... it seems a module/support problem for my board... does anybody know how can I fix it?01:16
lafonDasEi1: ahh, ok I'll have to get a live disk and see if it works. dial-up is the only internet i have :/01:17
craigbass1976darius, I've never seen that error...  Perhaps the package isn't called skype, but Skype ?  Oh wait, did you even install it with apt?01:17
DasEi1lafon: give it a try01:17
dariuscraigbass1976 yes i installed it with apt-get install skype01:17
lafoncraigbass1976: I installed skype via the .deb file from their site and purge worked fine01:18

JetJagurXPI have just setup a conky-launch.desktop file so I can autorun Conky when I login to Lubuntu 11.10.  It auto starts just fine, unfortunately it doesn't close when I log out.  Did I do it wrong?01:24
lafonPiranah: oh. sorry I know mostly dial-up and wireless :(01:24
Piranahlafon, its ok i suspect something to so with the nvidia drivers in 11.10 and network manager01:25
Piranahsetup ran fast as heck on 11.04 and earlier01:25
jmcantrellis there anything that can position windows automatically based on rules?01:25
lafonactually speaking about fast setup wubi never works with 11.10 so is there an alternative?01:25
ScuniziUninstall network manager an manually configure to see the difference01:25

rickbeeHello! This is the 3rd day of my inability to record videos using flash. :( I have installed flash in every single documented way that I have been able to find, I am a long time *nix user and pretty skilled, it just will not let me click the flash settings.. i can't click allow to give it access to my webcam. :| any ideas?01:26
Piranahbbiab thanks all for the help01:26
Piranahthis chan rocks01:26
Piranah:)01:26
=== luist_ is now known as luist
dr_willisjmcantrell:  devilspie, or theres some compiz plugins i recall.01:27
dr_willisrickbee:  theres been flash accessing webcam issues for ages...01:27
gusnanjmcantrell, as dr_willis said, try devilspie, or my project devilspie201:27
lucas-arggnome-shell i love so much...01:27
rickbeedr_willis: any ideas? where does flash store the excpetions or the 'always allow' 'list'?01:27
jmcantrellgusnan: diff between devilspie and devilspie2?01:28
newkidSo if gksudo isn't installed by default I have a corrupt installation, logical conclusion? I installed this on an old computer, so perhaps ubuntu is referencing the worng disc partition?01:28
dr_willisrickbee:  if you cant click on the buttons in a flash window. thats an old issue thats also been around for ages. I seem to recall some work arounds.. like disablng compiz, or trying a shift-click, or  holding down the right/menu mouse button then trying to click01:28
gusnanjmcantrell, devilspie isn't very maintained, and devilspie2 is based on LUA instead of the regular expressions of devilspie.01:29
dariuscan anyone help me with this please? http://pastie.org/2753808 I get it everytime I do something in terminal01:29
lafonnewkid: not sure. ive never been without some form of sudo01:29
lafondarius: try installing it again with "sudo apt-get install skype" and then "sudo apt-get purge skype"01:29
JetJagurXPI guess my question is:  What is the correct way to auto launch an app when I login to Lubuntu?01:29
dr_willisrickbee:  if flash is workng in other ways. its installed corectly. :)01:29
newkidlafon: normal sudo works, but gk does not :/01:29
newkidlafon: and allegedly it should be installed by default on the server distributuion of linux01:30
dr_willisJetJagurXP:  lubuntu/lxde uses openbox. and i think it can use the ~/.config/autostart/  directory01:30
lafongksudo or gksu?01:30
gusnanjmcantrell, http://www.gusnan.se/devilspie2/01:30
craigbass1976dr_willis, you ever run into not being able to log into the gui, but terminal and ssh are fine?  I'm getting (and still searching the web for the terms) "Unregistered Authentication for session /org/freedesktop....." and another line that I thought was interesting containing "user ingroup nopasswdlogin".  I'm also looking through today's channel logs as I was in and pasted the exact errors then.  Box is not on a netowrk01:30
craigbass1976at the moment01:30
dariuslafon http://pastie.org/275381301:30
dr_williscraigbass1976:  not seen that issue.01:31
JetJagurXPdr_willis  I did that.  However, the application I started doesn't close when I log out.  I guess that is the expected behavior.  But I want it so shut down when I log out also...01:31
jmcantrellgusnan: needs a ppa01:31
dr_willisJetJagurXP:  cant say ive ever noticed the issue.. guess ig can depend on the app.01:31
gusnanjmcantrell, hmmm... yeah, I guess you are right... I am not using Ubuntu as my primary system however...01:32
dariusdr_willis can you help me with this? http://pastie.org/275381301:32
K4ki found another error in /var/log/auth.log, lightdm: pam_succeed_if(lightdm:auth): requirement "user ingroup nopasswdlogin" not met by user [myuser]" anyone care to lend a hand? i can't get past the login screen.01:33
jmcantrellgusnan: ah, i just assumed... given the channel01:33
rickbeeomg i love gnome-shell01:33
dr_willisdarius:  at least summarize the issue. most people wont go to every URL posted to read the actual problem...01:33
rickbeejesus, these devs are effing awesome.01:33
Zoogooit's 02:33 here in england and i am gasping...01:34
dr_willisrickbee:  been having gnome-shell lock up on me when i try typing in anything to 'search' for an app today..01:34
rickbeedr_willis: Guess what, it fixed my issue with flash!01:34
rickbeeSwitching to Gnome as my session type fixed it.01:34
dariusdr_willis, I have an issue everytime I try installing something, it says either error merging package or it says 6%...01:35
gusnanjmcantrell, I am however working on getting it into Debian - This means you will get it into Ubuntu too.01:35
dariusdr_willis, using the apt-get install command01:35
p4nWhen pressing the power button to boot up my machine, sometimes it boots up, and sometimes it doesn't. It's that simple. The only details I can give is that sometimes it goes to the boot screen (and sometimes it doesn't). Any clues as to what I could do?01:35
dr_willisrickbee:  its likely it was compiz somehow interfearring withn your ability to click on buttons in flash window./.  that was an issue ages ago...01:35
dr_willisp4n:  the boot screen of Ubuntu? or the BIOS/Post boot screen? or the Login screeen?01:36
p4nBoot screen of Ubuntu, then goes to black. Signal/notification/power light still stays on my machine as if it's on and doing something, though. But the screen stays black.01:36
dr_willisIf its not posting/showing the bios scrren - then you got some hardware issues.. I have a similer old pc thats a little flakey.01:36
JetJagurXPdr_willis  Should I add a line to my bash_logout file to close it if it's open?01:36
dr_willisJetJagurXP:  you could try.01:37
jmcantrelldoes anyone use the compiz grid plugin?01:37
computer_Thanks all for all the work, just received an very interesting update the other day for 11.10 labeled something like 'alsa-plugin-somthing' and now my internal mic on my laptop sounds just as good as any Mac or Windows internal mic I have ever heard.01:37
p4nIt goes past the BIOS screen and then it either goes straight to black and nothing, OR it shows the Ubuntu boot screen for a few seconds then goes to black. If I'm lucky, like right now, it boots all the day.01:37
p4nway*01:37
dr_willisJetJagurXP:  ive never seen an app manage to stay around after i log out of X. :)  unless i spawn it to the background..01:37
p4nIt fails about 25% of the time.01:37
dr_willisp4n:  remove the quiet/splash option in /etc/default/grub  (replace quiet splash, with noquiet nosplash nofb)    so you can see all the error messages.. it Might give a clue when it next fails to boot up.01:38
dr_willisp4n:  it sounds more like a hardware issue then anything else to me.01:38
JetJagurXPdr_willis  I am launching it with the command conky -c /home/<username>/.conky/conkyrc01:39
computer_Was just curious if anyone knew what the road map for GIMP might be? As I see that it's integration with Unity to be ugly to use.01:39
dr_willisJetJagurXP:  ive never had conky prevent me from logging out.. what is it doing exactly?01:39
dr_willisJetJagurXP:  'conky  -yadda yadda &'   perhaps..01:39
JetJagurXPdr_willis  Oh I can log out.  But conky continues to run.  Shows up on the Login screen.01:40
hux_How do I top up a vodafone mobile donge (K3770) as they don't support Linux yet01:40
dr_willisJetJagurXP:  now thats an interesting bug.... never seen that befor.01:40
JetJagurXPdr_willis  If I login again conky launches a second time.01:40
p4ndr_willis: it says I don't have permission to save the file.01:40
dr_willisJetJagurXP:  check the askubuntu.com site and the forums perhaps...  you could do a 'killall conky'  in your logout file i guess.01:40
dr_willisp4n:  its a system file.. so of course. you need to use root/sudo access to it.01:41
computer_Of course I will ask in #gimp01:41
dr_willisp4n:  then you rerun 'sudo update-grub' to apply the changes01:41
JetJagurXPdr_willis  Is is because I'm launching it using a .desktop file in HOME/.config/autostart  ?01:41
dr_willisp4n:  is this a laptop or a desktop machine?01:41
dr_willisJetJagurXP:  shouldent matter.01:41
p4ndr_willis: laptop. I might need more specific instructions than that.01:42
beginneris there something like apt-get update to update to the latest spidermonkey ?01:42

BlackWebHow do you specify a display driver to use02:08
enix316zykotick9_: you have been over several days now. glad u are here02:08
yagoogdea73, it's actually pretty complex to fix suspend/powersaving.. it takes x number commands to find out what's wrong..02:08
yagoogdea73, and u have to check the bios, the kernbootline... see if theres any irq conflicts.. it's a real pita02:08
gdea73oh02:08
Gskelligwhat is the best way to have a command auto run on boot (not as root)02:08
gdea73bummer. and this has been driving me crazy for a while too, but ah well02:09
yagoogdea73, yeah.. best is to see if google "ubuntu wiki" + other keywords can help solve the problem..02:09
yagoogdea73, as i said it's real pita..02:09

gdea73that's too bad. anyway, so no idea what error "-5" means with an ide controller?02:10
gdea73actually I was repeatedly trying to suspend about a week ago02:10
yagoogdea73, the older hardware.. sleep wasnt very much implemented..02:11

gdea73ah ok02:11
gdea73just interesting that Windows 95C on a Pentium II suspends juust fine ;P02:11
NewbeeansHow do I upgrade to 10.10 ?02:11
gdea73(or on mine at least)02:11
yagoogdea73, and ide is pretty much very old.. you have usb?02:11
yagoogdea73, oh pentium 2..02:11
gdea73oh, no this is newer hardware02:11
yagoogdea73, dont worry about getting sleep working properly on that..02:12
BlackWebzykotick9, Heres the problem Installed 10.10 worked fine with desktop effects, then installed packages and now desktopeffects cant be enabled02:12
gdea73not old hardware, I'm just getting distracted... the P2 is completely separate.02:12
BlackWebthe hardware is intel02:12
gdea73my current PC actually has SATA, but it's in "IDE Mode" (not AHCI)02:12
BlackWebwhich the intel driver is install "xserver-xorg-video-intel02:12
gdea73I just keep the Pentium II for fun, that's in the basement :P02:12
BlackWebhow would i make it use the intel driver again, or the default one it was using02:13
gdea73actually this is sort of odd, in the log, it says says "pci_legacy_suspend(): ahci_pci_device_suspend ..."02:13
yagoogdea73, you using ahci?02:13
gdea73I was originally but now anymore. Did that affect things if I installed using AHCI and switched in BIOS later?02:13
gdea73anyway it's just odd, because this is not PCI, it's not legacy, and AHCI is off...02:14
zykotick9_BlackWeb, "...then installed packages..." sounds suspicious ;)  Do you currently have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file?02:14

yagoogdea73, u can interchange ahci to something else without data damage.. as for affecting sleep in linux i have noclue..02:15
R3db3ardNewbeeans, go to software sources and select the tickbox that gives you every update02:15
zykotick9_Newbeeans, by default LTS will only update to another LTS release (there is a way to change it, but I've never done it)02:15
craigbass1976HansLanda, what have you got for a card?  What you done so far?  I make no promises...  I haven't had to monkey with a card since before dapper02:15
yagoogdea73, it's possible a config in linux has something set to ahci. But i have no clue to that.. (probably #kernel may know)02:15
gdea73yagoo, ok. I just was unsure if something was "configured" for AHCI when I installed. Like if ahci was on when I installed, it might mess things up by turning it off later...02:15
BlackWebNo dont have a xorg.conf file in /etc/X1102:15
gdea73yeah that may be..02:16
gdea73oh well I guess I give up then, for now :P02:16

yagoogdea73, you are?02:17
gdea73it was only on screen for like a fraction of a second though02:17
gdea73I *was*, when AHCI was on.02:17
yagoogdea73, is ahci module loaded ?02:17
gdea73I don't think so, maybe..02:17
yagoogdea73, turn bios back to ahci.. reboot then see if ahci module is loaded (or shown in dmesg)02:17
gdea73well I have dmesg right here for now02:17
gdea73and it already does show up :S02:17
yagoogdea73, u need to set it to ahci in bios02:18

K4k"Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead" I get this plus GPG signature errors doing apt-get update. I believe it's due to an incomplete update from earlier today. What's built in to apt to correct this?02:41

diamondsxchat window is over my terminal so I can't see both at once02:42
gdea73that's really the only change too, since it last worked. This TV has already had problems recognizing HDMI (xbox 360, etc)02:42
gdea73but it eventually worked, I wasn't sure how, or why..02:42
jobalcaenmaybe you pulleda socket loose?02:42
diamondstheres a way to make windows less opaque... can I do that keyboardwise?02:42

x3qt0rwithout installing the packages?02:43
jobalcaenis anyone here using a static ip on a wireless interface?02:43
gdea73meaning, maybe that is interf. with the psu as well, I mean the receiver is 2" below it.02:43

jobalcaenis anyone here using a static ip on a wireless interface?02:44
cmn`javier__, e2fsck only does ext{2,3,4} partitions, so no. -c updates the bad sectors list in the partition table02:44
gdea73ah well... guess I'll rewatch some of the shows on TiVo02:44
gdea73thanks all02:44

Polahxananax, you could try removing and readding the repository. I don't know the command to remove, but to readd would be sudo add-apt-repository <repositorygoeshere>03:00

yagoodiamonds, not sure--- but chechk this out-> dpkg -L xserver-xorg-input-synaptics03:01
Polahscribus12, set a static IP on there system's or router's network settings. Of course, if you'll be accessing it externally (outside your home network) you'll also need to configure port forwarding on the router and ask your ISP for a static IP as well03:01

xananaxscribus12: you can remove unity and put back gnome2, but that won't hold for long, if you are using ubuntu you are going to have to get used to unity03:28
Bentley_xananax, thanks, that got me into the compiz settings. Still no love though - no unity launcher or top panel. Compiz seems to be working (ie: i can turn on wobbly windows and see it working)03:28
xananaxdid you try running gnome-panel?03:28
xananaxBentley_: my problem is I have no idea how unity works, I can deal with gnome errors, but I ain't using unity so...03:29
Polahxananax, you could try reimporting the key manually, but I don't know the keys for the repositories.03:29
Bentley_xananax, I noticed that there is a Ubuntu Unity Plugin" in compiz settings. It was turned off.  Turned it on a viola!03:30

xananaxscribus12: yeah, or Mint, it's still using gnome2, but eventually, it will have to switch to G303:31
yagoodiamonds, if not.. then i can tell u how a command can make a sample just for ur machine03:31
diamondsyagoo: no it doesn't03:31
Polahxananax, No idea. the command is gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv <key>  then there's a second one to add it to the keyring if I can find it03:32
diamondshere https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config it says /etc/xorg.conf and that's not there either03:32
xananaxPolah: thanks a lot, if I can get the key I should find my way around to add it to trusted.gpg somehow03:32
diamondsI tried sudo Xorg -configure but it said "Server is already active for display 003:33
xananaxscribus12: I am personally testing Mint 11 as I speak, it's cool, I it feels like my good old ubuntu again, but when gnome2 will not be an option anymore I'll probably turn to xfce, unless unity or G3 has evolved enough so I can customize them03:33

liamHi. I have just installed 11.10 on a lenovo idea pad Y560P. Everything works and then all of a sudden if stops booting. Can't see any error messages. I have already tried one reinstall and then the same thing happens again. Any ideas on how I could find out whats happening?03:44
kiruaxmerci03:45
en1gmacmn` so even if im building a module it can not be used? #2 ok i dloaded another (what appears to be a modified kernel) and it is missing the debian/scripts die03:45

en1gmaxananax so if i got a nic driver i want to build from sources i would or i would not use it?03:45
en1gmakernel related is drivers/modules right?03:46
xananaxen1gma, I truly have no idea sorry; never built packages03:46
cmn`en1gma, seperate modules are usually packaged seperately. make-kpkg is usually for just the kernel tree03:46

RealKillazTheEvilPhoenix, waw....04:37
gulzaralex1017, type this in terminal - sudo apt-get install gnome-disk-utility04:37
gulzaralex1017, done?04:37
alex1017ok got it04:37
gulzaralex1017, installed?04:38
TheEvilPhoenixRealKillaz:  i havent found a way to make it work in linux.  Short of running IE8 or something in Wine, with Silverlight... which only works 15% of the time04:38
RealKillazTheEvilPhoenix, I still can not imagine such a service will not work on a Linux OS. I mean is it so difficult for them?04:39
TheEvilPhoenixRealKillaz:  they use Silverlight04:39
TheEvilPhoenixits a MS-only product04:39
RealKillazTheEvilPhoenix, the fact they use SilverLight. I already think the service sucks without even watching one single movie!!04:40
gulzaralex1017, done?04:40
alex1017gulzar, it said it couldnt find package, but i am looking at something on disk usage analyzer that might help?04:40
gulzaralex1017, you can use it04:41
RealKillazTheEvilPhoenix, I heard it is working on ChromeOS04:41
RealKillazTheEvilPhoenix, and Mac04:41
gulzaralex1017, so how big is your root partition and how big is your home partition?04:41
alex1017it say "/" is 100% full at 2.9, which looks wrong04:41
RealKillazTheEvilPhoenix,  ChromeOS is a linux variant....04:42
RealKillazlinux distro04:42
gulzaralex1017, disk analyzer can do that work but for me it is confusing.. so finallly what is the result04:42
alex1017home is 7.2% full04:42
gulzaralex1017, no its not wrong04:42
gulzaralex1017, buddy .. you made wrong partitions.. but don't worry04:42
alex1017lol ty!!04:43

SinnerNyxif have to hard boot my machine, grub doesn't automatically go to the first option as usual.. how do i fix this?04:43

matrilloxany 11.10 Server users here?04:44
gulzaralex1017, you should have made / to be atleast 5GB for normal functioning and 8GB for such upgrades04:44
SinnerNyxif i have to hard boot my machine, the next time I boot grub doesn't automatically boot the default system after a 3-second timeout. how would I make it ignore the state of the last boot and just use the default boot line?04:44
SinnerNyxya matrillox04:44
gulzaralex1017, Ok on which system are you?04:45
matrilloxhaving an issue after applying the most recent patches via apt-get update, upgrade.04:45
urlin2uSinnerNyx, what is the default, and what is it actually booting to?04:45
gulzaralex1017, which version ?04:45
gulzaralex1017, how big is your hard disk?04:45

MrPocketzheat issue me thnks04:46
gulzaralex1017, there?04:46
SinnerNyxessentially this is a headless VM, and I need to know that it will always attempt to boot regularly, so that it gets to the point that the ssh server becomes available.04:46
alex1017yes...04:46
alex1017i think it says i have 6.8 G space04:47
SinnerNyxmatrillox, you'll have to be more specific04:47
gulzarMrPocketz, using Unity?04:47
matrilloxeth0 is not coming online during boot. only an ifdown then ifup at the console brings eth0 up.04:47
urlin2ujakes, not in the repos I sure you will have to look for a download of it on the web, why would you want it?04:47
SinnerNyxmatrillox: what issue, is this a clean install? did you install any non-default packages?04:47
gulzaralex1017, ummm which ubuntu version you are using?04:47
urlin2uSinnerNyx, I'm not familiar with servers sorry.04:47
MrPocketzyeah, i jsut noticed the PSU fan isn't spining..04:47
alex1017let me look04:47
MrPocketzbbl04:47
SinnerNyxurlin2u, i dont think its any different from regular ubuntu04:47
SinnerNyxif i have a regular ubuntu and i do a hard boot, i believe grub wont autoboot the default system04:48
urlin2uSinnerNyx, sudo update grub will reload it posssibly if you have changed ut.04:48
urlin2usudo update-grub *04:48
SinnerNyxthats fair, just not sure what to change in the grub config. thanks for the pointer though urlin2u04:48

alex1017sorry :(04:53
gulzarbarberdt, ya it should but its not04:53
alex1017i'm sorry and embarrassed, guys04:53
gulzaralex1017, the only option is download the latest version 11.10 and install it .. You have no option left. 8.0 is over04:53
barberdtalex1017: never be embarassed04:53
barberdtthat's what these places are for04:54
gulzaralex1017, or try 10.04 it is long term editions04:54
gulzarbarberdt, I can't believe they ship that old verison04:54
barberdtI wasn't aware Dell was even shipping with ubuntu as an option back then04:55
gulzarbarberdt, yes DELL WAS but not now... I think they are drooping support for Linux. Very less options are there from the04:55
alex1017ok, thats what i'll do, research how to get the new OS,.......  you guys are totally great -- especially you, gulzar04:55

gulzarSinnerNyx, yes with Lilo04:57
barberdtperfectly comfy with my thinkpad :P04:57
gulzaralex1017, follow the link04:57
gulzarSinnerNyx, what is your requirement?04:57
SinnerNyxgulzar Lilo is another bootloader? I don't want anything possibly holding up my computer on boot. I want it to just go directly to booting Ubuntu Server 11.1004:57
alex1017i will, gulzar....  10 pm here, gotta call it a night....  so i'll tackle tomorrow....  onward and upward....  again, thanks, and take care!!04:57
barberdtSinnerNyx: what I'm confused about is that, if it's 11.10 and there's only one system on disk, it should be bypassing grub alltogether, right?04:58
alex1017linux forever!04:58
barberdtor is that not the case on server edition...04:58
gulzaralex1017, urwelcome04:58
barberdti'm running 11.10 desktop ed. alone on disk, and i never see grub on boot04:58

Gskelligchandru_in, do you know if that fixes the hibernation too?05:14
SinnerNyxlol ever watch those movies where someone has a command line and is about to press enter when someone runs into the room and shouts "WAIT!!!".. gulzar just IRC shouted "WAIT!!!" to me :p05:14
chandru_inGskellig, yes. It continues to give wrong estimates of time left. But it doesn't trigger the critical level action05:14
SinnerNyxgulzar, yep as stated i've already done that05:14
Gskelligah05:14
gulzarSinnerNyx, edit it there and then run update-grub05:15
gulzarSinnerNyx, or else there will be a problem05:15
chandru_inGskellig, It says 2 hrs left then 2 mins left then back to 1:45 left. But since % left works fine, it uses this now for determining critical level05:15
SinnerNyxgulzar: yep.. already did :S05:16
gulzarSinnerNyx, I usually use gui and refer to /boot so was little confused. But remember edit it from /etc/default05:16
gulzarSinnerNyx, Ok do it. no problem if you edit that file. Once you edit it in /etc/default adn run update everything will be in posiotn05:16

tripelbHello. I have a MacBook now. I have a copy of the ubuntu.iso on the hard drive. I have a 2G emplty "flash drive" SD card. I'd like instructions for making the boot from all this. The sitespages I found were from 2008. Something more current SVP05:40
ActionParsnipOdin: make sure you enable the same software sources in both05:41
oxino is only for my system05:41
oxii have iptables configured05:41
ActionParsniptripelb: use unetbootin. Be sure you MD5 test the ISO you have05:41
tripelbexcept I dont have the ubuntu.iso so I'll have to get one. The newest I've used is the LTS 10,04 is the USB install the same for natty?05:41
tripelbhi action.05:42
odin_ActionParsnip,   enable ?  I did an standard install, I don't remember any tickbox or setting to show packages, I only installed amd64 around 6 hours ago (so I don't think my memory is that bad)05:42
pnormantripelb: I don't think anything with Disk Utility on OS X has changed in the last few years05:42
ActionParsniptripelb: same method, different file05:42
odin_ActionParsnip, I have allowed it to do software update and reboot and now I am looking for packages like "joe" and "build-essentials" in Ubuntu Software Centre, these packages are available from command like with "apt-cache show"05:43

pnormantripelb: depends which you want to install. my server uses natty.05:45

ActionParsnip!runleve | Shogoot10:17
ActionParsnip!runlevel | Shogoot10:17
ubottuShogoot: In Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.10:17

StaRetjiHi Folks, I've Huawei e1550 usb gsm modem. I use usb_modeswitch to kick it out of mass storage mode to modem mode and it works just fine. However, I have strange problem, if reboot pc, bios will wait 5 minutes to check devices (checking boot drives). If I shutdown pc and power on, it boots fast, passes this check. However, if I reboot PC this problem show up. So, my question is, is there a way to force PC, or BIOS, to reboot the same way as it would if Powe10:19
ShogootActionParsnip, which means that any program refered from Upstart is the one that gets to run on upstart and they have no runlevel anymore. /or do they get a runlevel 0 which is equal to 3-4-57?10:19
BrixSatim trying to compile this but i get this error http://paste.ubuntu.com/718665/ :S10:19
denysoniqueActionParsnip: nope, I am still going to have the newest compiz from Oneiric, by adding the Natty repository I will only receive updates for the 2.6.38 kernel, the rest of the my packages will be installed from Oneiric repositories, as latest versions will be only provided by oneiric10:19

MindSparkhi, how do I change my window manager?10:24
Kaapaguys, lost the tray on the latest system update - any tips on how to fix this?10:24
ActionParsnipcypha: when you use the domain name, the hosts file will override network DNS and convert the name to 127.0.0.1 (localhost)10:25
ActionParsnipMindSpark: managername --replace10:25
ActionParsnipMindSpark: e.g.    openbox --replace10:25
MindSparkActionParsnip, that's for the current session, what about if I want it to be done automatically upon login?10:25
ActionParsnipMindSpark: you could add a startup item I guess10:26
cyphaActionParsnip, so where do I point my domain name's nameservers?10:26

MindSparkisn't there a way to do it through the environment? a variable such as WINDOW_MANAGER ?10:26

ActionParsnipcypha: you will need to specify them in network manager, good admins will change the DHCP reply to set this automagically10:27
cyphaI don't have a hosting account10:27
ActionParsnipShogoot: afaik, runleve 2 to before GUI are the same10:27

PavillioxHow do I make it so I can write to an NTFS drive?10:28
dc5alaMindSpark, there was a setting for the window manager gconf, not sure if this is used by someone but gnome210:28
ActionParsnipcypha: or you can manually define up to 3 in /etc/resolv.conf10:28
icerootPavilliox: use ntfs-3g instead of ntfs10:28
ActionParsnip!ntfs | Pavilliox10:28

icerootPavilliox: yes10:29
cyphaI really don't get it10:29
icerootPavilliox: but you will format to ntfs instead of ntfs-3g10:29
cyphalike from the point of the nameservers for my domain name10:29
PavillioxThen install ntfs-3g from apt-get?10:29

dr_willisyoga:  the webupd8 blog and askubuntu.com sites have dozens of unity tweaks and tips.12:28
cyphallutz_, I currently have https://gist.github.com/5634bbbdd8af944919c912:28
chemtailI've already done a painstaking manual 'mkfs.ext4 -c -c' on a partition that took over six hours to complete.  Now installing with alternate CD in ncurses mode.  How can I be sure the installer doesn't try and re-format the ext4 filesystem, putting the badblock check to waste?12:29
dr_willisstephni:  winff, ffmpeg, mencoder, arista, or other apps...12:29
cyphado I just add another entry for 127.0.0.1   asdf.zapto.org12:29
dr_willisstephni:  i seem to recall doing that in winff ages ago.12:29
dr_willisbut i have a better phone now. :)12:29
stephniok lem try12:30
digzdr_willis: nothing happens.12:30
dr_willisdigz:  clarify what you did exactly...12:30
Stanley00chemtail: there an option to do that, when you select the partition12:30
llutz_cypha: no www here, sry. what do you want to achieve?12:30
cyphaI just registered a free domain, and I'd like for it to point to my local server I'm running12:31
digzdr_willis: alt+f2 -> typed 'xev' -> clicked 'xev' -> small window comes up, white with a black square -> try clicking all around the window -> nothing12:31
stephniis it in software center12:31
cyphalocal server is running at http://127.0.0.1:800012:31
dr_willisdigz: dont use alt-f2 open a terminal and runit12:31
digzdr_willis: okay, doing now.12:32
dr_willisdigz:  it prints a lot of info to the terminal.. thats whats to look at.12:32
chemtailStanley00: Yeah.  Problem is, I didn't find the option in the text installer.  And when last I did the partition setup, it even wanted to format the usb drive I was booting the installer off..12:32
chemtailSo that kinda made me stop and think and stop.12:32
llutz_cypha: install "noip2" to keep your IP actual. do you use a router? then you'll need portforwarding pointing to your machine:800012:32
=== silent is now known as Guest65333
cyphaI've already forwarded12:33
cyphaI can access my server externally12:33
cyphausing my external IP address12:33
cyphaall forwarding for port 8000 has been done12:33
digzdr_willis: yeah i get a lot of data12:33
digzthrough mouse movement and clicking.12:33
Stanley00chemtail: It's strange, it was there, when I install my ubuntu...12:33
dr_willisdigz:  you see mouse/up/down items whenyou click the left mouse button?12:34
chemtailStanley00: commandline/ncurses installer?12:34
llutz_cypha: ok, then add "127.0.0.1   asdf.zapto.org" to /etc/hosts12:34
Stanley00chemtail: yes, alternate CD12:34
cyphallutz_, even though I have another 127.0.0.1 entry?12:34
llutz_cypha: you can have as many as you want12:34
cyphaah ok12:34
digzdr_willis: shall i paste bin you what I get?12:34
dr_willisdigz:  not really :) there just should be some changes if you have the pointer in the window. not moving and you click the buttons12:35
dr_willisdigz:  that would show the mouse IS working12:35
dr_willisbutton press and button release events. with a # showing the button12:35
elgrecohi ubuntu pals12:36
Stanley00chemtail: when choose a partition, the first line show which FS, and after you choose the FS, the second line is whether format it or not.12:36
elgrecoI would like to ask something about VPN PPTP12:36
dr_willisdigz:  this looks a little neater as a test...     xev | grep Button12:36
digzdr_willis: yeah, it responds when i click and release.12:36
dr_willisdigz:  then when you press the buttons inthe window. you  should see press/remease for each click12:36
dr_willisdigz:  so its working for both buttons?12:37
llutz_grr, we need a new cron. Lots of code needed just to run a job "every 3rd tuesday of a month". Does anybody have a simple workaround?12:37
alecatin a dual screen configuration, is it possible to have only one top bar instead of twice the same ?12:37
elgrecois there a way to make a PPTP connection using smart-card or certificate ?12:37
alecatin gnome12:37
alecatwith unity12:37
digzdr_willis: it seems to be, yes.12:37
tomodachialecat: yes12:37
dr_willisalecat:  multi monitor setup is  very rough right now sadly.. its planed on getting some loving in the next release i hear.12:37
dr_willisdigz:  so mecahnically the mouse seems to be working.. how about your touch pad? click its buttons and see12:38
tomodachillutz_: just use make a cronjob, its a bit unintitive at first but once you get the hang of it you will be fine12:38
digzdr_willis: doing now12:38
alecattomodachi, any clue/link on how to achieve this ?12:38
tomodachialecat: what gfx card are you using?12:38
llutz_tomodachi: cron cannot handle "every 3rd tuesday"12:38
elgreco@ ALL is there a way to make a PPTP connection using smart-card or certificate ?12:38
alecattomodachi, an ati (don't know which serie :( )12:39
llutz_tomodachi: cron is very intuitive, but very limited too12:39
cyphallutz_, do I add the port to it?12:39
dr_willisdigz:  as a amuseing work around, no right clicking.. you can run   mousetweaks  -c --dwell --ssc12:39
cyphato /etc/hosts that is12:39
tomodachillutz_: just make a counter within your script and make it run every tuesday then.12:39
llutz_cypha: /etc/hosts holds hosts/ips not ports12:39
llutz_tomodachi: ugly12:39
dr_willisdigz:  then click on the 'secondary click' item, and a mouse move/dwell will then do a right click. :) its a feature for disabed people12:39
chemtailStanley00: my bad.  I gutsed going further with the setup again and found the option to "keep data" this time.  Thanks, though, I was too worried about spending another 6.5 hours to even go there :p12:39
tomodachialecat: well nvidia has their own "twinview" feature that easily enables this. I imagine that ati has the same.12:39
tomodachillutz_: well then just count the amount of hours that is every third tuesday and use this instead then12:40
_spt_ /msg NickServ identify barker1812:40
alecattomodachi, i don't have proprietary drivers enabled. is suppose i must do it12:40
Stanley00_spt_: ooops!12:40
ubuntuwoeshi all ..new to ubuntu ... have been trying to install it for days now ... with no success ... 64 bit win 7 and 64 bit ubuntu ... dual boot ... no luck in getting ubuntu to recognize partitions on the drive.  can someone help12:40
dr_willisHeh.. always msg the services from the server window..12:41
cyphallutz_, how do I direct it to the correct port then?12:41
llutz_tomodachi: as i said, there are lots of bloated scripts for that, i just was looking for something more simple12:41
cyphacuz my port is only listening on 800012:41
tomodachialecat:  that will help . Another way is configuring a spearate x server for each output. Then you can just configure that other x server not to have the bar12:41
llutz_cypha: portforwarding12:41
cyphaforward 80 to 8000?12:41
alecattomodachi, 2 x servers ! it sounds tricky to me :)12:41
digzdr_willis: OH CRAP12:41
llutz_cypha: for example, yes12:41
digzdr_willis: i think we have a breakthrough of some kind.12:41
digzdr_willis: trackpad right click responds, but left click doesn't.12:42
smiii Hi all! I know this is a bit cheeky but I'd really appreciate all your help with this: http://www.discoverbamboo.eu/click/1366/3f621895356c150ed2d1bd29c7e2ca4d - thanks!12:42
digzdr_willis: could this be the root of the problem?12:42
tomodachialecat: its a little bit tricky but it has some nice features as well. You can use desktop switching separately.12:42
dr_willisdigz:  now that app only seems to show the clicks.. if you click and hold down.... it may not be showing that...12:42
dr_willisIm not sure of a mouse config/debug app that shows more detailed info.12:42
tomodachialecat: for each desktop.12:42
dr_willisUnless anyone else knows of a tool to show if a mouse button is held down or not...12:43
tomodachidr_willis: if you can just cat the output device. if you want to see if there is any output.12:43
OerHekssmii is that some kind of contest to win a Bamboo ?12:43
cyphallutz_, so how do I port forward? :)12:43
digzdr_willis: it shows when i press down, and when i release.12:43
dr_willistomodachi:  cating here.. dident show the mouse clicks..  showed movement.. but not clicking.. i tried sudo cat /dev/input/mice12:43
digzon all three buttons but trackpad leftclick.12:43
dr_willisdigz:  so that confirms the button is broke at least. :)12:44
llutz_cypha: you said you already forwarded it in your router12:44
digzdr_willis: do you think if i physically destroyed it it would help?12:44
cyphallutz_, I meant I let 8000 through12:44
dr_willisdigz:  no idea. hard to tell12:44
llutz_cypha: you forward WAN:80 -> LAN:800012:44
dr_willisdigz:  theres most likely some wires you could unplug from the touchpad..12:45
dr_willisMy laptops got physical off buttons for their touchpads12:45
llutz_cypha: again: are you behind a router?12:45
digzdr_willis: mine has an FN shortcut12:45
cyphallutz_, yes I am12:45
digzdr_willis: but it's useless.12:45
llutz_cypha: it should have setting for that12:46
cyphayeah, I'm doing it12:46
cyphaI just had 8000 external and 8000 internal12:46
cyphaso I'm making 80 external to 8000 internal12:46
dr_willisi gotta run.. bbl12:46
dr_willisgood luck12:46
kanha_I have ubuntu 11.04 installed in my laptop and it was working wel but now its not booting an error msg as>>>>an occured unable to mount /var/run.How to fix it?12:48
cyphallutz_, won't this affect all websites though?12:49
llutz_cypha: all those being accessible from external, yes12:50
cyphai'm saying, won't this convert even google.com (which I suppose would use port 80) into using 8000 internally?12:51
amin`JWM ?? how could someone build a menu for JWM automatically? like this in openbox  mmaker -vf OpenBox312:51
llutz_cypha: no, you redirecto incoming ports, not outgoing12:51

spiekeyhow can i get the linux-header for 2.6.38-11-genericin Ubuntu 11.10? I does not seem to be in the repo anymore13:50
auronandacesandra_: there is the real question13:50
icerootsandra_: 11.10 is using 3.0 and not 2.6.3813:51
icerootsandra_: wrong nick13:51
icerootspiekey: 11.10 is using linux 3.0 and not 2.6.3813:51
icerootspiekey: so you need the headers for your current kernel which is 3.013:51
spiekeyiceroot, i know. Stilll...i just upgraded and want to use the last Kernel... :)13:52
sandra_iceroot, I did state my question earlier but be that as it may I had to log in using Unity 2D because my 3D unity would not come up .13:52
icerootspiekey: and why not 3.0.0.x?13:52
sandra_iceroot, do you know of a way of restoring the 3D Unity desktop?13:53
icerootsandra_: sorry, no13:53
auronandacesandra_: try not using a ppa for xorg13:54
sandra_iceroot, Unity 2D uses Gnome 3.2.0 not gnome 213:54

See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa13:57
auronandacesandra_: bottom line is if you want support for a ppa, ask the ppa provider13:57
MonkeyDustsandra_: ppa's are not supported by the community13:58
auronandacesandra_: especially for something as fundamental as xorg13:58

auronandacesandra_: you ask the provider, not the users in the official support channel13:59
MonkeyDustsandra_: find out who created the ppa and contact that person13:59

I would uninstall the packages from the PPA, that apparently didn't work ...using the Synaptic Package Manager (within it you can select the section called 'Origins' on then the PPA, there by showing you all packages installed from that place) ... secondly I would make a copy of your xorg.conf file (located in /etc/X11/xorg.conf ) ...and then delete the current one ...then...14:12

remoteCTRL3ActionParsnip: i wonder why software center wont find neither kubuntu nor xubuntu...14:50
=== ruda_ is now known as rstm
auronandaceremoteCTRL3: use synaptic instead14:50
remoteCTRL3auronandace: i use software center only when i cannot find something with apt-cache...14:51
remoteCTRL3ok guys, it was a pleasure14:51
sandra_remoteCTRL3, Xubuntu does use ubuntu software center by default in the 11.10 version14:51
* remoteCTRL3 -> @xfce testing14:51
auronandaceremoteCTRL3: xfce is my favourite14:52
llutz_isn't softwarecentre just another frontend to apt?14:52
remoteCTRL3sandra_: somewhat interesting: software cdenter does find xubuntu and kubuntu but ONLY if you type xubuntu-desktop if you search for xubuntu desktop it wont14:52
remoteCTRL3veeery veird14:52
edbianllutz_: yes14:53
remoteCTRL3auronandace: i was using kde some ages ago, then gnome, but i dont like unity, so i am looking for alternatives. gome is also unfinished imho...14:53
auronandaceremoteCTRL3: lxde is another option14:53
remoteCTRL3auronandace: yes i heard of it...14:53
auronandaceremoteCTRL3: and enlightenment14:54
remoteCTRL3but i am actually not looking for a lightweight desktop but for one less cumbersome...14:54
