Guest63056Hello! :)21:03
bodhi_zazens-fox: support is fine21:06
s-foxOkay bodhi_zazen.21:06
Guest63056So, here is my question: I'm running 11.10 on a virtual machine using VMware (Win 7 host) and I'm having trouble with the network connection. The host machine is connected wirelessly, and that's working fine. Within the virtual ubuntu machine, some internet things are working - for example, I can browse using Firefox, no problem. However, I can't get the software centre to download any programs. Specifically, I'm trying to install Wine, but21:06
Guest63056I can't get the software centre to download any apps. Does anyone have any idea what might be happening?21:06
bodhi_zazenthanks s-fox21:07
s-foxGuest63056,  Can you open a terminal?21:07
s-foxGuest63056,  enter: software-center21:07
s-foxGuest63056,  Please post any errors21:07
Guest63056How do I open a terminal? I know I've done that before.21:08
s-foxThen enter: gnome-terminal21:08
Guest63056OK, so typing software-center just makes the software center run.21:10
Guest63056And that's fine, but I get the same problem.21:11
s-foxWhat errors are coming up when you try to download (look back in the terminal output)21:11
Guest63056softwarecenter.backend - ERROR - error in _on_trans_finished 'Error: None21:12
Guest63056The pop-up says "Failed to download package files - check your internet connection".21:13
s-foxPerhaps it is your source that is down.  Anyone else got any ideas? @ room in general21:14
Guest63056What does that mean? I figure it's gotta be a configuration problem with the virtual machine into the host internet connection, but the browser works from within Ubuntu, so I'm not sure.21:15
Guest63056Also, when I start software center, there's a line that says: softwarecenter.backend.reviews - WARNING - Could not get usefulness frmo server, no username in config file.21:16
Guest63056Failing the software center, is there some other way to download apps and install them into Ubuntu, perhaps using the browser and a direct download, then install?21:17
nlsthznGuest63056: it depends on the software...21:18
s-foxnlsthzn,  Here are the logs for before you joined the discussion - http://paste.ubuntu.com/721096/21:20
Guest63056nlsthzn: Here's the original problem. I'm running 11.10 on a virtual machine using VMware (Win 7 host) and I'm having trouble with the network connection. The host machine is connected wirelessly, and that's working fine. Within the virtual ubuntu machine, some internet things are working - for example, I can browse using Firefox, no problem. However, I can't get the software centre to download any programs. Specifically, I'm trying to insta21:20
Guest63056ll Wine, but I can't get the software center to download any apps.21:20
Guest63056Haha, we had the same thought. :)21:21
nlsthznGuest63056: thanks21:21
nlsthzns-fox: thanks also :)21:21
nlsthznto install wine you could try in terminal "sudo apt-get install wine" however there is an underlying issue with your software center that also needs fixing21:22
Guest63056That terminal command worked.21:24
Guest63056it would be good if the software center also worked, though, you're right.21:24
nlsthznGuest63056: do me a favour and in terminal do "sudo apt-get update"21:24
nlsthznand see what it does/says21:24
Guest63056it's installing wine.21:24
Guest63056I'll do it straight after.21:24
nlsthznah ok... when that is done then :)21:25
Guest63056Much scrolling, and then W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net oneiric Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 5a9a06aef9cb8db021:27
nlsthznGuest63056: well all of your software sources except one is now updated... what we could do is to update your system then try the software center (this is the easy no-troubleshooting involved hope it fixes my problem way)...21:31
nlsthznhas worked for me before :)21:31
Guest63056Update to what?21:31
nlsthznGuest63056: if there has been any bugfixes or security updates you can use "sudo apt-get upgrade" to install them...21:32
s-foxSo it was the sources after all ;-) Not a bad guess.21:32
Guest63056So I'm doing that.21:33
nlsthznGuest63056: after that try the software center again and lets see if we get the same error...21:34
Guest63056It appears to work!21:39
nlsthznGuest63056: \o/ awesome21:39
Guest63056Excellent, thanks! :)21:39
* nlsthzn bows down to s-fox 's wisdom21:39
s-foxI am glad it is now working Guest6305621:40
Guest63056Thanks a bunch! Now to figure out the other stuff. :)21:40
nlsthznGuest63056: well, figure away and once you got it come back again and share some of your wisdom ;)21:42
Guest63056The other stuff is mostly virtual-machine stuff, not ubuntu stuff.21:43

cprofittI am curious if he has proprietary or open ATI driver too22:34
bodhi_zazenFeel free to take it from here if there is something you know about ati22:34
eyadof1it dosen't work :(22:38
cprofittbodhi_zazen: I saw something, but can not find it right now22:38

bodhi_zazenI can probably configure my ssh server to do the, users would ssh -R into my server23:41
asterismoi pastebinit the old fashion, haha23:41

asterismobut this is the thing23:48
asterismothe dialog said something like (1) not connect to anything and (2) connect to a wireless network... bla bla23:49
asterismoand in the list of available networks, there was no networks... there was only 1 item and under the name "Broadcom BCM 4312... not sure"...23:50
cprofittlets try the rfkill list23:50
asterismobut there were not wireless networks... here in my place are like 3 or 4 networks23:50
asterismothat was odd23:51
asterismoinstead the name of the network (my own house is like 95% signal)... it was displayed as the wireless chip name23:51
asterismoand maybe this is not working since the beginning of the installation23:53
cprofittI do not think so based on what you said23:53
cprofittlets try the rfkill list23:53
