s0needouglas-web-dev: use chown and chgrp00:00
Chraz_Rittthsanks, i didn't think of that00:00
Boontoourlin2u: unless, the disc is not working properly perhaps? I am unsure of how to proceed, everywhere i read online fsck, and e2fsck seem to fix the same error but I still have not identified the specific source of the problem00:00
mdsilvadouglas-web-dev, use "chown"00:00
wolfmitchellBack00:00
escottdouglas-web-dev, chown -R username:username BUT since you didn't do the original copy correctly most likely all the permissions are wrong, so things like .ssh will have the wrong permissions if you do this00:00
douglas-web-devmdsilva, thank you00:00
ppangolinhi. i'm already tuned on upgrade from 10.04.3 LTS to 12.04 LTS and my question is: i have two partitions, / (root) and encrypted /home. let's say, that i want to upgrade to newer version of ubuntu and i only want to remove contents of / (root) partition - /home is going to be about the same. how to do it proper way?00:00
fellayaboy_hey listen, i have a script called trz.sh i want to be able to run that script from terminal wherever im at00:00
RxDxcan anyone tell me a "stick notes" program that show the note on desktop like post-it?00:00
fellayaboy_i dont want to ./trz.sh i just wanna trz and thats it00:00
Boontoourlin2u: I assume sda1 is screwy because it has an invalid superblock, but I cannot fsck it00:01
urlin2uBoontoo, sounds like something is broken, I have never had to run a fsck I just reisntall.00:01
jribfellayaboy_: put it in ~/bin and login again00:01
escottfellayaboy_, add it to your .bashrc where you export $PATH00:01
stercordouglas-web-dev: chown --recursive owner:group /home/user/you00:01
Boontoourlin2u: I have tried both before...but I need some of the data on sdb100:01
Boontoourlin2u: and I cannot boot00:01
escottRxDx, tomboy00:01
jribppangolin: you just do the standard upgrade procedure00:01
urlin2uBoontoo, can you open the partition from a live cd?00:01
Chraz_Rittnope, it is only set at full, and all other settings make the problem worse00:02
RxDxescott, tomboy dont stick the note on desktop00:02
stercordouglas-web-dev: Is that enough to get you going?00:02
scythefwdqin - it's my lightdm that was my prob.. kdm boots and lets me in...00:02
Boontoourlin2u: I am doing all of this from a live cd. when I get the error, I don't even have a shell00:02
ppangolinjrib: i would like to install it from scratch, no updates. format / root partition as ext4 and clean install.00:02
Boontoourlin2u: but when I try to use gparted, it crashes unexpectedly00:02
douglas-web-devescott, thank you. So I get on the folder via terminal and type chown -R username:username (same username twice, right?)00:02
urlin2uBoontoo, go to home and the left panel and open the partition.00:02
jrib!encrypted | ppangolin00:02
ubottuppangolin: For information on setting up encrypted private directories (8.10+) see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EncryptedPrivateDirectory00:02
escottppangolin, you should read the documentation on ecryptfs, and make sure you have a backup copy of the key. look in .ecryptfs for instructions on how to copy that key00:03
douglas-web-devstercor, thank you, all try it here :)00:03
douglas-web-devI'll*00:03
jribppangolin: read information there on how to properly record your passphrase00:03
julius_is it possible to use a 2.6.x kernel from 11.04 in 11.10 ?00:03
DrCherrywhere can I find embedded wireless devices in /dev ?  there're not under wlan00:03
ppangolinjrib, escott: the name of user that will be on that computer will be indentically that same00:03
urlin2uBoontoo, or at least look to see if it shows.00:03
jribppangolin: I'd guess that if you keep user password the same it should "just work", but I'd still have the passphrase recorded in a safe place00:03
escottdouglas-web-dev, chown -R u:u /home/u. yes. the u after the : is the group. most files are owned by you and the group is your group. however the permissions on things like .ssh/id_rsa may be wrong00:04
Ragnarocki love fucking users female ubuntu00:04
Chraz_Rittescott, i just tried all my other settings for the plasma, and this is the best00:04
RxDxwhats the shortcut to show desktop?00:04
Boontoourlin2u: I see both disks there, but one of them won't open00:04
Ragnarockkkkkkk00:04
Ragnarocksorry00:04
Ragnarockim sorry mans00:04
stercorRagnarock: Is english your first language?00:04
fellayaboy_yo can u turn a whatever.sh to a bin???? so if u put in in /usr/bin it will work?????? how do u do that pooooolellease00:04
ktosiekRagnarock: learn english00:05
urlin2uBoontoo, is that the one you want, sdb is it a external drive like a usb or internal?00:05
stercorfellayaboy_: chmod +x whatever.sh00:05
Boontoourlin2u: they are both internal00:05
DrCherryhow can I figure out what device my wireless is?00:05
escottfellayaboy_, ~/bin is exported in the $PATH. anything that is executable in ~/bin will be executable on the command line without the full path. so move it to ~/bin and chmod +x it00:05
fellayaboy_stercor but it only works if i go to the directoy and type ./whatever.sh00:05
s0neefellayaboy_: put it in /bin or create soft link (ln -s)00:05
Ragnarockktosiek, learn english ?00:05
Chraz_RittBTW escott, the os identifies the plasma as a 32" when it's a 50 "00:05
mdsilvaRagnarock, will try to take your comment in it's least chauvinistic sense. which might be difficult00:05
douglas-web-devescott, thank you. I'm doing it00:05
fellayaboy_hmmm s8nee soft link???????00:06
fellayaboy_what is soft lin?00:06
stercorfellayaboy_: You have to have it in a directory that is in your path.  echo $PATH00:06
zykotick9fellayaboy_, you shouldn't mess with /usr - use ~/bin instead (FYI you need to log out/back in after creating that directory for it to work)00:06
synapse_anyone here know how to create a fakeroot.tar.gz file of an environment?00:06
Boontoourlin2u: I wonder if just unplugging sda1 would allow sdb1 to load?00:06
fellayaboy_escott excelent idea so i just dump the whatever.sh into bin and i would be able to jsut type whatever in terminal whereever im at and BOOM it will work?00:06
stercorfellayaboy_: Ya got it.00:07
Boontoourlin2u: I don't think sda1 has boot partition for sdb1 anyway00:07
escottfellayaboy_, as long as the executable bit is set, and you are logged in as yourself00:07
stercorfellayaboy_: But it has to be executable.00:07
fellayaboy_8C huh zykotick900:07
stercorfellayaboy_: The chmod +x does that.00:07
fellayaboy_OH OK GUYS I GOT THAT00:07
urlin2uBoontoo, shouldn't make a difference. the boot if none are gpt is the mbr.00:07
fellayaboy_NO PROBLEM SO ILL JUST DUMP IT INTO BIN...00:07
fellayaboy_thanks guys00:07
stercorfellayaboy_: /usr/bin, or better, /usr/local/bin00:08
TheEvilPhoenixin /etc/hosts, if I want to define 6 sites to point to 127.0.0.1, can i define the hostnames to bind to that address all on one line rather than have multiple lines containing 127.0.0.1   <host>00:08
stercorfellayaboy_: stay away from /bin00:08
TheEvilPhoenix?00:08
escottRagnarock, your comment was confusing/offensive. if you have a question please ask it00:08
fellayaboy_stercor why is that????00:08
zykotick9stercor, ~/bin is a better suggestion00:08
urlin2uBoontoo, so what Os"do you have and on what drives?00:08
urlin2uOS's00:08
stercorfellayaboy_: The system uses it.00:08
fellayaboy_hmmm so whos is right zykotick9 or stecor00:09
stercorzykotick9: Is ~/bin normally in the path?00:09
Boontoourlin2u: I should have ubuntu 10.10 on both drives, but I usually only boot from one00:09
Pelocan some one tell me where I can set hotkeys in 11.10 like we could do before ?00:09
Untitled_onlyhey does anyone know how to delete files in the root folder via terminal?00:09
zykotick9stercor, yes by default - but you need to logout/back in for it to work00:09
stercorzykotick9: If so, I've learned something valuable! :-)00:09
ktosiekstercor: yes, if you have it at login time00:09
Boontoourlin2u: under /dev I appear to have an sda1, sda2, sda3, that I do not recall making at all00:09
urlin2uBoontoo, can you pastebin the output from a sudo fdisk -lu on the live cd.00:09
mdsilvaUntitled_only, yes using the "rm" command, but it's probably a really bad idea00:09
Boontoosure00:09
fellayaboy_Untitled only just sudo rm00:09
ktosiekBTW anyone knows why ~/bin isn't just added to PATH?00:10
Ragnarocksorry escott00:10
escottktosiek, it is00:10
Untitled_onlyok.00:10
* stercor checks his path...00:10
ktosiekescott: even when it doesn't exist00:10
escottktosiek, no only when it exists, unless you have changes your .bashrc. check /etc/skel/.bashrc00:10
zykotick9ktosiek, it must exist at login for it to work00:10
Ragnarockim sorry00:10
fellayaboy_hmm so which is it guys...zyco or sterco00:10
Boontoourlin2u: http://pastebin.com/2szDiMxv00:10
Boontoourlin2u: sorry it is a capital S00:11
fellayaboy_zykotick9 or sterco? which one is better...using /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin00:11
Chraz_Rittescott, my problem is solved, i just had to take another look at the controls got the plasma, it has a second set of size settings that i missed.00:11
zykotick9fellayaboy_, neither - ~/bin00:11
escottfellayaboy_, programs for just yourself go in ~/bin. programs for everyone not installed by apt-get go in /usr/local/bin or /opt00:11
mdsilvaktosiek, you can add it to your path very easily00:11
Untitled_onlythanks00:11
ktosiekescott: /etc/skel/.profile:if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then00:11
ktosiekhmm00:11
escottfellayaboy_, you should never manually modify anything in /usr/bin or /bin. that is for apt to manage00:11
fellayaboy_so path will recognize both /usr/bin and /usr/local/bin by default?00:11
ktosiekmdsilva: I know, I'm just questioning the defaults :-)00:12
fellayaboy_escott bingo thats very important00:12
fellayaboy_so its /usr/local/bin00:12
escottfellayaboy_, /usr/bin and /usr/local/bin are exported as part of the path for everyone in /etc/profile00:12
Chraz_Rittthanks escott, and mdsilva, you guys pointed me in the right direction.00:12
fellayaboy_im the only user so for me it doenst matter00:12
escottChraz_Ritt, good00:12
synapse_anyone here know how to create a fakeroot.tar.gz file of an environment?00:12
stercorHmmm....~/bin didn't work for me.00:13
fellayaboy_but any other day i would have to edit the bash_profile00:13
synapse_i.e., I want to create a fakeroot I can uncompress and chroot into00:13
ziesemerMy desktop is hanging on login for some users, but not others.  I determined that it's getting hung at a "gsettings get" call, which returns the result but is not exiting the process for the stuck users.  Any ideas?00:13
urlin2uBoontoo, so what was on each hd as in installs?00:13
escottstercor, have you logged out? or run a bash --login? have you modified your ~/.bashrc00:13
Boontoourlin2u: Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick00:13
stercorI edited /etc/environment; then source /etc/environment; then echo $PATH00:13
urlin2uBoontoo, on which hd?00:14
Pelostercor, I didn'T catch the rest of this but ~/bin means /home/username/bin are you sure that's what you want ?00:14
Boontoourlin2u: should have been on both, but I have only been running the bigger hd00:14
douglas-web-devescott, it worked! I'd never do it that fast, thanks a lot! :)00:14
plummerbAnyone know where to get the New Century Schoolbook font?00:14
Peloplummerb, have you tried on gnomelook.org ?00:14
urlin2uBoontoo, was it a cloned maverick from one to another?00:14
stercorPelo: I don't believe ~ resolved correctly.  Better to put `/home/user/bin' in the path.00:14
escottdouglas-web-dev, id still be worried about your permissions. if you dont tell cp to preserve the owner permissions they could be all wrong00:15
douglas-web-devthere was a blackout here. thanks God It rarely happens.00:15
Untitled_onlydoes anyone here know how to use aircrack-ng?00:15
Boontoourlin2u: I think i separately installed it on sdb1, and then I chose sda1 in BIOS each time I wanted to run it00:15
plummerbPelo  I have not.  I will look.00:15
douglas-web-devescott, even not having .ssh files?00:16
urlin2uBoontoo, okay so did you get a kernel update on the sdb1 manerick, that will change the grub control to the sdb HD.00:16
Pelostercor, I meant that it didn'T point to the regular /bin in the folder tree.   and but if you are talking about a bin folder in the home folder, isn'T it usualy  ~/.bin ?00:16
urlin2umaverick*00:16
fellayaboy_brb ima see if dumping it into local/bin will work00:16
douglas-web-devThey now belong to my user. What could be wrong, escott?00:16
escottdouglas-web-dev, i would audit your permissions. you'll want to use find to figure out how things are permissioned00:16
Boontoourlin2u: I am not sure, there was an automated update as I restarted, I could not see what it was doing because the window was not displaying text00:16
escottdouglas-web-dev, when you cped and lost your ownership you probably changed the rwx bits. so you need to verify that nothing secret has been exposed00:17
urlin2uBoontoo, the only way a kernel can update is in a regular update/upgrade. Have you tried changing the first drive to be read in the bios?00:17
Boontoourlin2u: but I do not remember seeing the new kernel option on statrup00:17
Boontoourlin2u: yes, i tried both drives00:18
MechanisMhello. it's possible to install ubuntu in ramdisk?00:18
fellayaboy_i dumped my trz.sh into /usr/local/bin and typed in trz..... nothing worked.. :(00:18

douglas-web-devescott, It's only my wife and I that use this computer. She has hers own, so almost never she uses mine. I don't have anything here to hide from her. You mean exposure for local users or the internet?00:20
PeloMechanisM, I'm pretty certain that's not the way to go about it00:20
MechanisMPelo why slowin?00:20
urlin2uBoontoo, do what you think is needed, I uae external HD to back stuff up so I never loose anything, both the actual items and clones of the OS using clonezilla.00:20
fellayaboy_wow so just renaming trz.sh to trz solved all my problems00:20
fellayaboy_now all i have to do is trz wherever im at00:20
fellayaboy_well..couldnt have done it without u guys....THANK U00:21
PeloMechanisM, well,  the live desktop session runs off the memory , do you think that is faster then an hdd install ?00:21
MechanisMI have 15000rpm disks for system\swap but want more00:21
urlin2uMechanisM, you can have a flash run the swap00:22
MechanisMjust wondered if ubuntu can be installed in ram somehow00:22
PeloMechanisM, what you want is LFS00:22
escottdouglas-web-dev, for local users mostly, but you should be sure to use cp -a next time00:22
escottdouglas-web-dev, also some programs will refuse to work if secret data is not permissioned correctly. examples would be the .ssh/authorized_keys file will be ignored if it is not permissioned correctly00:23
MechanisMPelo no I wanna keep ubuntu and just wondered if it's can running from ramdisk00:24
plummerbNew Century Schoolbook font is not on gnome-look.org.  Anyone know where I can get it?00:24

foolovei continually get not found in archive error message on untarballing files00:26
MechanisMsame here load ramdisk from dump and all updates dump in file(for load next time and by default keep all in ram)00:27
mdsilvafoolovem sounds like corrupted files00:27
escottMechanisM, so you want to run it off a ramdisk, and somehow snapshot that to the harddrive. you would need a kernel driver for that, and it doesn't sound like a good idea. far far far too easy to end up with an unbootable system. there is a reason we have filesystems00:27
MechanisMescott 'm just got pc with 256GB ram and wanted system in ramdisk lol00:28
mdsilvaMechanisM. wow, that's a lot of ram. what kind of pc is it?00:28
escottMechanisM, (a) that seems pointless. you will make your boot slower as it reads all the binaries of executables you won't need into ram00:29
MechanisMit's ex-database server. also it's have 4 processors each 10 cores00:29
MechanisMI got it from some unsuccessfull internet start-up00:30
escott(b) you could do it by working your way down to a ro core fs, and then building a ramdisk of that and mounting it instead of the real root, when you need to update you reboot but to the hd root, make you modifications, and rebuild your ramdisk00:30

daviddoriaI just tried to upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10. It said the upgrade could not be completed successfully and that I should restart. When I restarted, the Ubuntu progress bar goes across, but then I get a white screen. I tried "recovery mode" which I thought was like "safe mode" but I just get a root terminal prompt. Any suggestions?00:32
MechanisMescott I said it's ex-database server. now it's my home pc00:32

escottdaviddoria, sorry i mean "runlevel" not init00:34
pnormanmdsilva: particularly since any machine with that much ram is likely to be able to run hardware raid with very fast disks00:34

W3ird_N3rdif anyone ever reads/searches the log for this channel: cool 'n' quiet failed because for some reason, it gets disabled when I install 4 memory modules01:01
daviddoriaescott - 'init 2' says "the disk drive for / is not ready yet or not present. continue to wait, or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery01:01
daviddoriaescott - the drive is fine - I booted from a live cd and I can see all my files, etc01:01
escottdaviddoria, thats strange because mount is saying that it is mounted01:02
escottdaviddoria, another approach would be to try and recover from a livecd chroot environment01:02

yagoodaviddoria, or are you just assuming?01:07
yagoovn3Ben, google ubuntu wiki macbook-- there are few tricks (commands likely) for common macbooks01:08

xananaxHello, I've been googling for long now without finding the answer to this: what fonts are safe to remove from /usr/share/fonts?

yagoobenhem, you installed gdm to replace lightdm?01:15
benhemor whatever it was by default, yeah01:15
benhemI thought it was called 'unity'01:15
daviddoriaescott, sorry, now I do01:15
yagoomaybe with the other gdm/kdm logon scressn u should still see the other options01:15
benhemoh, you mean gnome-desktop-manager, the package?01:15

benhemwhich might have included that01:16
yagoobenhem, LOGON screen.. there's not a gear icon (top right corner of username)01:16
daviddoriaescott, even with 'text' the screen does this totally bizarre fade to blotchy white thing01:16

escottdaviddoria, try text nosplash nomodeset?01:16
daviddoriayep, that worked! it booted normally01:18
escottdaviddoria, probably modesetting add nomodeset to your /etc/default/grub default boot options01:18

daviddoriaescott, will do, that's a fight for the morning :)01:22
escottdaviddoria, in the future try to explain the full problem, would have been easier if you described the white splotchiness first01:22
magn3tseSoul, openjdk 7 is available01:23
yagoobenhem, what does your logon screen look like? what i meant is a selection of different "window desktops" - eg: choosing unity, gnome-classic, etc.01:23
magn3tseverything in the repos are against java6 or gcj which is just dumb01:23
daviddoriaescott, ok sorry, I thought the failed upgrade was causing the splotchyness, so I thought that was the thing to fix01:23
benhemI didn't get that.  the gnome-replace process failed, though01:23
benhem(yagoo)01:23
damonI know openjdk is available. I'd really like to install sun (oracle's jdk) from the repos01:23
yagoobenhem, can u open a terminal?01:23
daviddoriawhat is the deal with that splotchyness anyway? I've seen wrong drivers display lower resolutions , or not work at all (black screens) but never almost work and fade to a splotchy white?01:24

marksmanxananax, thanks will try there01:34
benhemyagoo: that's all.  my suspicion is that the gnome-replace got halfway and then aborted01:34
yagoobenhem, i dont think its that01:34
benhemk..01:34
yagoobenhem, u must of done something system wide..01:34
benhemwell, I did -- I mean, I ran gnome-shell --replace01:35
xananaxmarksman: I think wordpress should be using the default apache mailer which is not really configurable, but I guess there should be some wordpress extension that allows you to configure mails, using pear::Mail or something01:35

yagoobenhem, but u did something system wide..01:38

jsmith_98I have a complete noob question... this is my first linux/ubuntu install.  I installed 11.10 on a portablel usb and it's running smooth.  However, I was wondering if I could bypass/remove grub as it's not necessary because I only plug in the drive when I want to use ubuntu.02:01
slimjimflimdo any of those give you a list of access points, or even one?02:01
zyltoid_slimjimflim: no unfortunately, which is the problem :(02:02
invisiblekjsmith_98, i dont believe so. grub is what tells the system which kernel to boot up02:02
slimjimflimzyltoid_: well it looks like your drivers and software are setup correctly02:02
hexacodeanyone know a decent filtering utility for ubuntu that converts to and from  any of the following   hex, binary, ascii , and maybe even character encodings02:02
rypervenchejsmith_98: You don't need to install it onto the USB drive. You only need to run it as a live session.02:02
invisiblekjsmith_98, if you did updates, and ended up getting an updated kernel version, you'd have to go and change a bunch of stuff again02:03
invisiblekor do that02:03
OogyPoogyjsmith_98: I believe if you remove all options except for Ubuntu kernel, and set an autoboot to 1 second it will be the same thing02:03
slimjimflimzyltoid_: the next thing i'd do would be try running it somewhere that you know has a wireless connection02:03

zyltoid_i found a post on opensuse forums where a guy claims the official driver for my card is supposed to be in kernel 2.6.40 +02:09
FerchoLP/I'm gonna ask that on #chromium02:09

slimjimflimzyltoid_: worth a try02:10
zyltoid_i'm on 3.0 already though02:10
zyltoid_i guess i'll just compile what they provide. thanks for the help02:11
slimjimflimzyltoid_: sometimes the newest version isn't the most stable02:11
jsmith_98Hey, thanks for your help guys!  I was expecting to get a bit of slack for being a noob.  I guess we all started somewhere.02:12
jsmith_98I'm sure you'll hear from me again.02:13
yagoojsmith_98, that's fine to ask nooby questions.. as long as you learn 1 step at a time than try to take it all in oneshot like some crazy clickheads that come once in awhile around ;)02:14
CarlFKhow do I run  valgrind compiz ?  which means I need to stop the current instance and run that with the right parms and rights and whatever02:19
zyltoid_i'm looking at the debian docs for my card and it the module is supposed to be 'rt2860sta'02:20

IbisOther than finding programs/files?02:22
VustomWhen using GNOME 3 on Ubuntu 11.10, why isn't there any minimize tab?02:22

VustomI have another problem, when I start my PC and boot into Ubuntu, the loading screen is just purple instead of the Ubuntu logo with the 5 dots, it does come up though, but at the last second02:31
becom33umm escott I have ubunut 11.10 . I had downgrade back to 9.4 coz the latest version was kinda messed up with the Gnome and it didnt take my VGA . btw how am I suppose to activate desktop effects in 11.10 ?02:31
escott!downgrade | becom3302:31
ubottubecom33: Attempting to downgrade to an older Ubuntu version is explicitly not supported and may break your system.02:31
becom33escott: I didnt mean like that . I uninstalled the latest version and installed the older version again02:32
Vustomescott: It should work with GNOME 3; this guy/girl has done it, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eo0QXJrv1hs02:32
_klk_hi all.  i'm running into some weird compile errors in ubuntu 11.10 for a project that used to compile just fine in 10.04.  when it gets to the link stage, every single function call to an external library is marked with "undefined refernce to".  does anyone know what might be going on?02:32
VustomBut for me it doesn't want to work ;c02:32
escottVustom, i dont use it so I dont know. just suggesting it as a possible issue02:33
_klk_a different project that uses the same libraries compiles fine02:33
becom33thought maby if I upgrade from the older version to the latest version effects and resolution might stay the same02:33
escottVustom, run it from a terminal and see if you get an error message02:33
Dougie187_klk_: that means it's not linking correctly.02:33
_klk_all the libraries are installed into the various paths (/lib, /usr/lib, /usr/local/lib)02:33
Vustomescott: gnome-pie right?02:33
Dougie187_klk_: do you have the correct -l statement?02:33
_klk_Dougie187:  how would i go about fixing it?02:33
escottVustom, yes02:33
becom33escott: so what should I do now  ?02:34
escottbecom33, to get desktop effects you need to have a video driver that supports glx. usually people use the jockey-gtk to install proprietary drivers02:34
Vustomescott: http://paste.ubuntu.com/720308/02:34
Dougie187_klk_: undefined reference basically means you have the header to a function you're trying to use, but not the source for it (or the library that contains it). So it should be there, but it doesn't actually exist. If you are using something like math.h, then when you compile you need the -lm flag.02:35
Dougie187etc02:35
becom33escott: but in the older version it takes the effetcs without any drivers . :/02:35
rypervencheescott: What version do you use?02:35
_klk_Dougie187:  I think so.  here is my flags:  -lcurl -lssl -lbz2 -ljson -lcrypto -lPocoFoundation -lPocoNet -lPocoUtil -lPocoCrypto -lboost_thread -lavformat -lavcodec -lavutil -lswscale -lPocoXML -lx264 -lopencv_core -lopencv_highgui -lboost_system -lboost_program_options02:35
_klk_(sorry for long paste)02:35
FloodBot1_klk_: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.02:35
escottrypervenche, version of what02:36
_klk_Dougie187:  and i've manually verified that all those libraries actually exist in  the system02:36
Dougie187_klk_: and that doesn't help me any as I don't know what library your functions should be in or anything.02:36
izinucsI have a readon m7 video card in my thinkpad.. how do I activate that driver for effects? Nothing is listed in Hardware drivers.02:37
rypervencheescott: Ubuntu, or if you don't use it what distro do you use?02:37
izinucsor better yet.. how do you shrink the size of the side launcher bar?02:37
escottbecom33, proprietary drivers sometimes get fouled up during upgrades. before i stopped using them i always had to fix them with every new release version02:37

Dougie187_klk_: what function is undefined?02:38
becom33so escott so how can deal with this jaunty thing ?02:39
_klk_Dougie187: _all_ of them.  every single function call to an external library is flagged with the "undefined reference to …" error.  i can post the make output if you want to see02:39
escottbecom33, jaunty is eol. so you have to upgrade if you want support02:40
Dougie187_klk_: no. the makefile or the compile string would be more useful.02:40
becom33escott: at the moment it only shows me 9.10 version02:40

iamfenneci'm runing lubuntu 10.04 and my update manger is giving me an error that theres not enough free space on my hdd and to empty trash and get rid of temp packages from former installs useing sudo app get clean02:41

Dougie187_klk_: i'll brb. If you pastebin the Makefile or something pm it to me02:42
Polahiamfennec, then you should consider doing that, unless you know you have more space than it claims.02:42
becom33btw is there any method I can put this upgrade and go out see the upgrade level from a remote computer ?02:42
iamfennechow do i do that? i don't know what its asking me to do02:42
izinucsiamfennec: you might also have quite a number of old kernels still installed..02:42
iamfennecyeah thats what i'm thinking, how do i take care of that ?02:43
iamfenneci thought ubuntu managed all that on its own02:43
escottiamfennec, (a) its asking you to run sudo apt-get clean, so do that. (b) use the disk usage analyzer to see where you disk space is being used, and you can ask us if something is bigger than it should be02:43
izinucsiamfennec: open synaptic and search for "linux" you'll get a list of stuff. look for the old kernels and mark them for uninstall.02:44
VustomCan someone help me? I type; 'sudo apt-get install git-core' then; 'cd git clone https://github.com/rcmorano/gnome-shell-gnome2-notifications.git' and then; 'sudo cp -r gnome-shell-gnome2-notifications/gnome-shell-gnome2-notifications@emergya.com /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/' but for some reason when using the last terminal line I get this message; 'No such file or directory'02:44
escottiamfennec, apt will keep older files around that might be useful, like old kernels and old .debs and old config files for programs that have been removed, etc02:44
escottVustom, not cd git clone thats all wrong02:44
escottVustom, git clone, then cd02:45
VustomSo what would it be? I'm confused, I'm just getting this from; http://www.webupd8.org/2011/10/things-to-tweak-after-installing-ubuntu.html02:45
_klk_Dougie187:  sure, i'll post the failing compile string.02:45

marksmanWhat is the easiest way to install windows 7 AFTER ubuntu is installed so I can dual boot?02:46
zykotick9iamfennec, searching for linux-image will probably be a lot easier then just "linux"02:46
izinucsmarksman: wipe the drive .. install 7.. reinstall ubuntu..02:46
escottVustom, cant say exactly, because we didnt write these directions, but git clone downloads the program, cd would change your working directory in some way, and the cp moves the files to a globally available place (VERY BAD THING TO DO)02:46
obert-i'm in a shell in recovery mode, if i try to launch visudo it'll returns that it is a read-only file and then i cannot edit it02:46
izinucsmarksman: windows doesn't play well being installed afterwards.02:47

escottobert-, you are root, no need to sudo. type "whoami"02:47
iamfennecwell i have kept up on deleating the old installs for the os select page my computer starts up too02:47

escottobert-, if you are in a single user mode you are usually there for a reason (unless you intentionally selected it from the boot options). you need to determine why you are mounted ro. fsck the main partition02:51
iamfennecok one think at a time here, what should i do first ?02:51
escottiamfennec, its autoclean that you want, but you keep messing up the typing of the command its "apt-get" not "app get"02:51
izinucsHow do I shrink the size of the left launcher bar?02:52
escottiamfennec, to be honest it doesnt matter which one you use, they both free up space but with clean you will have to redownload stuff which is annoying02:52

iamfennecok did the sudo apt-get clean and it asked for a password which i entered then went back to the root promt02:54
escottobert-, and you need to run fsck /dev/sdX#02:54
escottiamfennec, silence is success02:54

VustomHow do I edit /etc/grub.d/10_linux?03:00
obert-sigh:( for the second time using chown, escott :(03:00
obert-so sad03:00
escottobert-, in that case remount,rw and then run the command correctly03:00
obert-escott: then if i try to run visudo it'll says that /etc/sudoers is in read-only mode03:00
izinucsivanBliminse: .docx opens just fine in libreoffice.. why go the wine route?03:01
escottobert-, you shouldnt be messing with sudoers03:01
obert-escott: read-only file system, sorry03:01
escottobert-, if you ran usermod -G without -a thats why you cant sudo03:01
obert-escott: what should i do?03:01
ertyuiop99escott, I'll come back if it doesn't work, :D03:01
iamfennecis it safe to trash the contence of my tmp folder ?03:01

obert-escott: did i told you that i'm in a vmware vm?03:03
escottivanBliminse, its going to be weird because of the way wine maps the fs into a c:\ d:\ drive. you might just want to start office and open them that way03:03
obert-escott: it'll list some messages, no idea03:04
ertyuiop99escott, is it a good tut?03:04
escottertyuiop99, tldr; but i've seen people mention it before so i guess its ok. can't really say myself03:04
escottobert-, what were the messages, and the vmware bit shouldnt matter03:04
ertyuiop99okay03:04
ivanBliminseescott, is there a way in 11.10 to tell ubuntu what file extensions open with what programs.03:05
obert-escott: Note that one does not really mount a device...03:05
escottivanBliminse, usually you right click on the file in nautilus and say open with, and then save that preference03:05
izinucsHow do I shrink the size of the left launcher bar?03:05
ivanBliminseescott, how do you save that preference03:05
escottobert-, you aren't mounting a device, you are remounting a partition with different options03:06

izinucsHow do I shrink the size of the left launcher bar?03:11
sharejussi: #ubuntu-cn03:12
escottizinucs, try the tweak tool, maybe it can help03:12
ivanBliminseizinucs, you want to shrink the size like the width or the apps?03:12
izinucsescott: don't know that tool03:12
urlin2uizinucs, unity plugin in the compiz config manager03:12
izinucsivanBliminse: width, icon size etc.03:12
ivanBliminseizinucs, ccsm... its the unity plugin, under experimental tab.. works well03:12
klynci created a user via the "User Accounts..." graphical tool, and it appeared in the lightdm login list; i then did 'usermod -u 500 klync' and the user no longer appears, and when logged in as that user, it shows my name as "[Invalid UTF-8]" ... i checked /etc/lightdm/users.conf and it's set to allow any uid >=500; what gives?03:13
izinucsurlin2u: did that. reduced it to the minimum and nothing changed.. even after logging out and back in again.03:13

izinucsivanBliminse: nope03:13
izinucsivanBliminse: didn't change anything.03:13
escottklync, you completely broke that user by changing their uid after their files were laid down03:13
ivanBliminseizinucs, sometimes you have to log out and log back in.. but you can do a ALT+F2.. then type unity --replace03:14
urlin2uizinucs, only works in 3d I believe, although 11.10 it should work, try running compiz --replace in the terminal.03:14
klyncescott: nope, the user's home dir is owned by uid 50003:14

ivanBliminseizinucs, when it comes back up it should be proper.. try the log in log out if that does work... I always do an extreame if things don't take.. like take the size all the way down.. just to make sure it changes.. then adjust03:14

escottblawiz, dont do that03:27
mdsilvaJiKeidan, what's your trouble?03:27
ted__gaga03:27
escottblawiz, if you absolutely have to do something like that, uninstall it first, and then install it to /opt or /usr/local manually03:28
JiKeidanwell i'm working with an ubuntu gateway in my network.. but i have it more specifically for the kernel's built-in iptables and ip route03:28
obert-escott: what is this? which commands i've to launch, and many thanks. obert-, you should also verify groups username and make sure it has the groups you expect03:28
mdsilvaSo, I've heard Lady Gaga prefers ubuntu. Has she upgraded to 11.10 yet?03:28

ubottumdsilva: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!03:29
mdsilvaJiKeidan, ok, what seems to be the problem?03:29
escottobert-, "groups username" replace username with the broken user. if it doesnt say admin that user cant sudo. then "usermod -a -G admin username" to add that user to admin group03:29
blawizescott, do you know how long the delay is generally from a new version to be on the web, and it getting in the ubuntu package sys?03:29
JiKeidanomg, at this point the problem is this room... mdsilva... can i pm you?03:29
mdsilvano03:30
obert-escott: purr:   user : user www-data admin03:30
escottblawiz, usually keyed to releases unless there is a security issue, and the releases are generally debian unstable + a few months of stabilizing03:30
JiKeidanok... iptables... i've read the man pages, i need some clarification on some specifics...03:30
JiKeidanfirst off, conntrack...03:30
mdsilvayou'd do better letting everyone hear the question, then you'll get more answers03:30
JiKeidanwhat is it and how does it work with the packet types to be filtered?03:31
escottobert-, and "user" cannot sudo?03:31
obert-escott: do i have to reboot now?03:31
rootuser777how can i hide other users in taskbar ?03:32
mdsilvaJiKeidan, if you have two ethernet ports on your gateway, it can decide which ones to let pass and which ones to filter out03:32
escottJiKeidan, i believe conntrack is frequently used in NATs to enable dns_masq. the packet types are just the packet types.03:32
blawizescott, ok ok :)03:32

obert-escott: i think i have to reboot to test sudo myuser ?03:32
escottobert-, if you made changes then sure try to reboot03:33
mdsilvaJiKeidan, you specify rules for how it should filter, and you can make those rules work by packet type if you wish03:33
obert-escott: dunno. i'm just following your commands03:33
JiKeidanyes i understand that mdsilva... however, I am unsure specifying -m conntrack plays a role in packet filtration03:33
JiKeidanunsure how* specifying03:33
obert-escott: i'm in panic :P so i got fear to do anything03:33
escottobert-, well lets not say panic. it makes me thing the kernel is panicing which is different (and not happening here)03:34
escottobert-, the fastest thing is probably to just reboot like normal and see if you can sudo then03:35

rootuser777how can i hide users in taskbar?03:35
obert-escott: !!!!!!!! fixed!!!03:36
zykotick9obert-, if you are having issues with sudo (i haven't been following) - did you happen to change your computer name by chance?03:36
mdsilvaJiKeidan, conntrack starts a visual display of connections in real-time03:36
JiKeidani see no visual when used through iptables03:36
JiKeidanare you saying conntrack is it's own module?03:36
mdsilvahttp://www.netfilter.org/projects/conntrack-tools/index.html03:37
JiKeidani'm actually on that page now03:37
JiKeidani guess i'll download it and read the man pages on it03:37
mdsilvahttp://conntrack-tools.netfilter.org/03:37
escottJiKeidan, conntrack is a rather general set of tools to enable connection tracking which allows more complex rules than "just allow port 80 through"03:38
JiKeidanso i need to experiment around with conntrack and then work out how it applies to the iptables later03:38
mdsilvayes, it's a module to help make it easier to admin the connections as they are happening03:38
JiKeidanconnection tracking, escott?03:38
JiKeidansudo routes doesn't do this?03:39
=== sysadamin|away is now known as sysadamin
mdsilvayou get to see who is connecting and to where03:39
JiKeidanor netstat -A ?03:39
obert-zykotick9: if i rebuilt the complete story correctly, i'd made something like chown www-data myuser in order to destroy it: i wasnt able to use sudo with that user. now thanks to escott  we made: launched my VM (vmWare) with Ubuntu 11, clicked very fast in the VM window, pressed CANC to enter Recovery Mode, launched a shell session as root, launched: mount -o remount,rw /  and then   usermod03:39
obert--a -G admin username   and reboot. it is fixed now.03:39
mdsilvaconntrack let's you pick individual connections to block, with a finer control03:40
obert-escott: so many thanks :) you saved my VM03:40
JiKeidanbut you couldn't do that with iptables -s XXX.XXX.xXX.XXX -j DROP?03:40
escottobert-, the chown command wouldn't have messed up your ability to sudo03:40
JiKeidanif all of that is the case, then why include it in with the iptables build?03:40
VustomHow to make grub be in 1680x1050 resolution?03:41
escottobert-, usually what people do when they break their ability to sudo is they use usermod to add themselves to a group but don't specify -a (append) and all the existing groups are wiped out03:41
dardevelinescott, su03:41
denis_http://goo.gl/tuSzO03:41
obert-escott: i'm sure i never used usermod, just chown03:41
escottobert-, if you did that your current user is unable to print, mount devices, share samba folders etc03:41
mdsilvaJiKeidan, because it depends on iptables and makes iptables more controllable03:41
obert-escott: i was trying to add /var/www/ writeable by my own user, that's it03:42
VustomHow can I keep the GNOME 3 dock on the desktop so I don't have to keep clicking Activities?03:42
escottJiKeidan, thats not very fine grained control. you have to know the ip before hand. think "drop connections from ips that make more than X connections a minute for Y minutes"03:43
obert-escott: i got   username is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported.03:43
JiKeidanok... so how would i experiment with iptables module conntrack?03:43
obert-escott: when i tried to do sudo, now it has launch apt-get update correctly03:43
JiKeidani see...03:43
escottobert-, chown cannot cause this error. thats all im saying03:43
JiKeidanand escott... how might u add to a chain that function u just described?... drop ip after x connections via conntrack?03:43
obert-escott: i got it, but i really didnt made anything else strange03:43
xanguaVustom: you don't have to click, just drag que mouse to the top left corner03:43
escottJiKeidan, no idea, never used it.03:44
JiKeidanwell here's what i'm doing in the end...03:44
JiKeidani have an ubuntu gateway03:44
VustomI don't like doing that either, would prefer just to keep the dock on the desktop, is that possible?03:44
JiKeidanit is used because of the nice iptables build03:44
JiKeidani need to filter packets as they come into my server computer03:44
xanguaVustom: install a dock then03:44
qinobert-: There is bash_history in your home to see what happened, or /var/log/auth.log03:44
JiKeidanhowever, i need each packet to maintain it's source IP as it passes through the gateway03:44
JiKeidanthus far, any sort of packet forwarding i have achieved through the gateway computer to the server computer changes the source IP address to the gateway subnet before it gets to the server....03:45
escottJiKeidan, it dns_masquerade for a NAT03:45
JiKeidanthus every connection that is made to the server is made through the ip address 192.168.0.2... instead of the client's03:45
mdsilvaJiKeidan, is your gateway setup for nat?03:46
JiKeidanhow is dns_masquerade for the nat table different than just -j MASQUERADE?03:46
JiKeidanit is03:46
JiKeidanthrough masquerading...03:46
escottJiKeidan, do you understand how dns_masquerade works?03:46
JiKeidanI don't think I do... i have read through the ip routes and iptables man a few times each, but i have still got so many holes in my logic about it all03:46

mdsilvayou mean you want to run your own search engine?03:49
MadpilotTheExplorer, you know how huge Google's server farms are, right, to do what they do?03:49
TheExplorerI mean i want a search engine that is not dependent on.... someone elses server.03:50
TheExplorerYes, Yes, i know how big googles servers are.  as i said originally "if someone were so crazy"03:50
TheExplorerdoes it exist?03:50
mdsilvathere have been programs to do that, they haven't usually been free though. "northern light" has had search engine software for sale03:51
TheExplorerits strange to think few others have thought of this03:51
DebolazTheExplorer: Writing such software is fairly trivial. The reason most people don't use that they really don't have any utility without the enormous hardware resources of Google.03:51

TheExplorerand Marketing03:52
TheExplorerCertain things will be "censored"03:52
mdsilvaTheExplorer, that said, you basically need a huge amount of index database before a search engine is useful03:53
DebolazTheExplorer: Without enormous resources, those things won't even be indexed.03:53
TheExplorerAll i want to index is text.03:53
DebolazTheExplorer: Text is what we're talking about here.03:53
TheExplorerhm.03:53
DebolazTheExplorer: I think you severely underestimate how large the Internet actually is. :-)03:53
TheExplorerNo, trust me. im not a fool. But i want a way to run searches based on patterns i set. For very specific ranges.03:54
mdsilvaTheExplorer, if you just want a mini search engoine to cover your over web site, that's doable, but a net-wide engine requires great resources03:54
DebolazTheExplorer: Trust me, you do underestimate the size of the internet.03:54
TheExplorerFor example: Rule = Keyword found -> note associations in dictionary to keyword -> recycle and specialize to site where (keyword) found then do associations of envorionment type.03:55

TheExplorerOne more question: I just discovered raid. And when reading on it, i discovered that "Raid0" will operate at 2x Data compasity of the smaller drive....04:06
escottTheExplorer, and twice the risk of losing everything04:06

ivanBliminseanyone know why SAMBA GUi doesn't come up in ubuntu 11.10...a rgh04:07
TheExplorerAssuming that one drive is 2x the size of its sister, Is there a format that allows a pattern of "striping" based on calibration of write speeds in fractional "slicing" (yes thankyou escott, I use it only as execution, not backup.04:07
escottTheExplorer, if disks are different size use LVM and JBOD04:08
escottTheExplorer, i don't know if possible to stripe different sizes, but I doubt it. that would make configuration that much harder, and it much more likely to lose everything04:09
dr_willisivanBliminse:  what samba gui do you mean04:09
TheExplorerI am asking, is it not simple enough to dedicate 2 write oppurtunities to one drive and 1 to the other, if the speeds were so?04:10
escottTheExplorer, you could try to have two partitions on one disk and one on the slow disk and raid0 across three partitions, but you would be jumping from partition to partition on the first disks and the seeks would kill you04:12
TheExplorerescott, I did actually think of that on paper... And it would work perfectly if i knew a way to interlace the partitions in alternating write blocks.04:13
ivanBliminseanyone got samba working in 11.10...04:13
TheExplorerThe sequency would have to be drive 1-a drive 2/1-b 2/2-c > back to drive 104:13
escottTheExplorer, the reason this kind of stuff is not supported is that when the day comes you get hit by a bus, and the configuration on the disks is lost nobody will ever figure out how you set things up. so no sane sysadmin does this for a production system, and therefore nobody codes the options in to enable this on systems like yours04:14
=== richard is now known as Guest3696
TheExplorerWell that wasnt nice.04:15
lucid_intervalTheExplorer: I think you can achieve this kind of flexibility by doing striping on top of LMV (stripe across PVs or physical volumes).04:15
escottTheExplorer, its not meant to be mean. just telling you i doubt you will find and easy way to do this04:16
lucid_intervalTheExplorer: that was LVM and not LMV04:16
TheExplorerunderstood.04:16
TheExplorerBut is there such thing as interlaced partitions?04:16
samuelhello guys04:16
TheExplorerlike umm. an ntfs, and ext... alternating tracks on a drive.04:17
samuelanyone know how to check key codes from the terminal?04:17
ivanBliminseI'm shocked that something as simple as samba does not work.. installs perfectly.. I go to run it, it asks for a password.. then nothing04:17
escottTheExplorer, you could set LVMs block size to be small, but you can't guarantee the interlacing04:17
samuelspecifically: how do i map the stamina/speed switch in a vaio to execute some script I have04:18
KamikazeAndyI'm trying to install Ubuntu 11.10 alongside Windows. I'm at the page where I select the partition and it wants me to allocate drive space between files and ubuntu. Why is it doing this? Can I not just have 1 partition aside from swap?04:18
xubunturobIs something wrong with minitube?04:18
lucid_intervalTheExplorer: that is extremely unlikely because it tightly links knowledge of the filesystem (or which filesystem / partition) to the lower level block-level striping04:18
escottKamikazeAndy, you can have just a / partition if thats all you want04:18
TheExplorerescott, if i set the block small, theres still the question of how much data, per physical space exists on a drive that spins at X speed. If the system is willing to stripe the data to annother drive, then you have 3x which is 1/3 each. if you04:19
KamikazeAndyescott, it isn't allowing me that option.04:19
dr_willisivanBliminse:  you should clarify to the channel exactly what you are doing.04:20
TheExploreroh..., nvm... ill stop being a bother.04:20
TheExplorerthanks for the assist04:20
escottTheExplorer, you can try stuff like this, the thing is it exponentially increases the number of config options, and thats generally considered "bad" on a production system, so its not going to be easy, and it may not work the way you want, because nobody has tested it04:21
xubunturobAnyone else having trouble with Minitube?????04:21

ivanBliminsedr_willis, I am trying to install samba and access a windows 7 workgroup .. i type sudo apt-get install samba samba-common system-config-samba... i type symba in unity, the app icon comes up, i click it , it asks for password, dialog goes away, nothing else happens.04:21
VustomLike the sound icon, network icon etc04:21
escottVustom, you cant04:21
VustomWhat about things that I've installed?04:22
robin0800Vustom, gnome-shell?04:22
escottVustom, the shell is not meant to be highly customizable04:22
lyraei downloaded jre via oracle's website. anyone know how to start installation after i extracted the files?04:22
Vustomit looks stupid how I have it now..04:23
escottVustom, if you want to install shell extensions you can, but thats the main way to customize04:23
VustomI have a ram meter and it's in the middle of all the right icons04:23
Vustomram/cpu*04:23
yohola04:23
th3pun15h3rhey got a question, my youtube videos and gamespot videos play just fine but when I go to play ones from IGN they dont, I got the adobe flash plugin and the restricted codec one anything else I could do?04:23
yohi04:24
MadpilotVustom, congratulations, you've just discovered one of the greatest weaknesses of Unity, that if you dislike the defaults, you're out of luck...04:24
VustomI'm using GNOME 3 though D:04:24
th3pun15h3rthere should be a way to get rid of unity04:24
VustomThat's not Unity.. is it04:24
Vustom?04:24
ivanBliminsemadpiolot, I think he is using gnome 304:25
IbyssWho here thinks a Ubuntu Unity File manager would be a good idea? (Done in such a revolutionary way, like how google chrome did. Then we can have something like Opera's speed dial or something like that).04:25
ivanBliminseUnity is basically a big theme on top of ghome 304:25
dr_willisivanBliminse: the nautilus filemanager does nit need samba package installed to access windows machines.  and i ve no idea what that samba binary is to be doing. since samba is a service04:25
escottVustom, both unity and gnome3 follow the same basic principles. customization is bad, user experience should be consistent04:25
TheExplorerescott, come now. dont be so negative. I dont do most of what i tinker with, to be "more productive" I do it to fail, and learn why its not!04:25
TheExploreraaand because i can.04:25
VustomI hope 12.04 is epic :c04:25
dr_willisivanBliminse: umity us a shell on top if gnome304:25
TheExplorerthats why my droid milestone runs ubuntu.04:25
IbyssThen do away with the Dash icon in launcher tray.04:25
Vustom2 questions04:25
ivanBliminsedr_willis, I know04:26
VustomHow can I make it so the GRUB is 1680x1050?04:26
escottVustom, /etc/default/grub04:26
Vustomit keeps staying at 1600x1200 :@04:26
th3pun15h3rdude unity and all of linux is what makes linux great!04:26
KamikazeAndyescott: imagebin.org/18098404:26
dr_willisVustom: check /etc/defaults/grub04:26
th3pun15h3rpeople can customize the UI how they want or use unity or not.04:26
th3pun15h3rI personally like unity and ubuntu compare to other distros04:27
yuin ubuntu 11.10 how can I go back to classic view04:27
VustomGRUB_GFXMODE="1680x1050-24"04:27
Vustom:/04:27
VustomBut it's not 1680x1050 though D:04:27
yuin 11.04 there was an options item04:27
escottKamikazeAndy, use the advanced partitioning tool04:27
yuand there you could choose04:28
zykotick9!notunity | yu04:28
ubottuyu: 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 dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic04:28
VustomWould this work? GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="ro quiet splash vga=0x0369"04:28
KamikazeAndyEscott: ok, I'll try it again. Last time it froze up on "configuring target system"04:28
zykotick9Vustom, vga= lines are deprecated04:29
th3pun15h3rwell just answered my own question its something with firefox chromium plays my ign videos just fine...lame04:29
dr_willisi always set my gryb for lowres rext only ;)04:29

th3pun15h3r*too04:31
TheExplorerSo i went to KDE04:31
Vustom;)04:31
escottTheExplorer, go ahead and try the lvm/raid config if you want. i think we04:31
escottTheExplorer, 've told you everything we know about how you might do it04:32
galmohowever i don't want something like, vmware or virtualbox that creates a whole thing, and the main program I want to run crashes in wine all the time04:32
th3pun15h3rhehe im metro sexual when it comes to picking my OS I love UBUNTU because of the UI look and color scheme lol04:32
Vustom"Try the vga= method, with whatever value you need"04:32
gulzarHow to install awn lucido in 11.10? Getting "unable to locate package". Tried ppa but no result.04:32
VustomWhat does he mean by that?04:32
galmoi've been looking a while now and haven't come across anything that really impressed me04:32
escottgalmo, there isn't much between wine and a VM04:32
th3pun15h3rthey have me with the halloween orange and black color04:32
pnormanI like Ubuntu's default GUI. I run Ubuntu Server.04:33
galmoi'm just saying i don't want a whole virtual desktop because this computer is fairly old and slow and i have enough performance issues as it is04:33
th3pun15h3rsame here pnorman04:33
KamikazeAndygalmo, what program are you wanting to run?04:33
escottVustom, they are modelines for the kernel, and as indicated they are deprecated (so they won't be supported in the future), you can probably find a listing of the modelines currently supported in the kernel documentation04:33
galmopokerstars mainly04:33
th3pun15h3rgalmo I would us Lubuntu or Linux mint LXDE or Puppy Linux or DSL04:33
TheExplorerescott if you know any links that would explain the way the "LVM" + "RAIDx" works, that would be most helpful04:33
th3pun15h3rtry Lubuntu first since its based off the Ubuntu distro04:34
galmoyeah i'm looking for something similar to wine that's light and doesn't require allocating ram and resources like a virtual machine does04:34
th3pun15h3rLinux mint is nice cause it has all the plugins and codecs preinstalled04:34
escottTheExplorer, look at the LVM documentation, and then look at the mdadm documentation. i'm not sure what else i can tell you about them04:34
brunodbohey everyone - if I want to compile from source, can I use the same source to compile for 32bit and on 64bit? or does that depend on the source in question?04:34
escottgalmo, and that thing would be wine04:34
th3pun15h3rplayonlinux but that incorporates wine04:35
VustomWhat vga= would 1680x1050-24 be?04:35
th3pun15h3ranything else you have to pay for it04:35
gulzargalmo : wine has no alternative.04:35
escottgalmo, there are some commercial variants of wine, like crossover and playonlinux that you have to pay for but are tested with some more applications04:35
galmoright, i understand and have been using wine, it crashes constantly which is why I was hoping there was something else04:35
gulzargalmo: virtualization with qemu or Virtualbox is possible but with old hardware wine is the solution .04:36
escottbrunodbo, depends, a well updated project these days should be able to compile for either without trouble04:36
gulzargalmo: if wine is not working then no luck... YOu have to wait for your app supprot in wine04:36
th3pun15h3rany of you guys used super gamer edition linux before ?04:36
galmohmm... well it's something to look into anyways, and i'm checking out that lubuntu right now, yeah wine usually works great for what i need04:36

VustomWould changing set gfxmode=${GRUB_GFXMODE} to set gfxmode=1680x1050 or set gfxmode=1680x1050-24 work?04:37
th3pun15h3rya you could try xubuntu04:38
gulzargalmo: go to wine HQ and see if any disktro support your app . Different distro have different (slight) performance with wine.04:38
th3pun15h3rit just changes ubuntu to xfce ui04:38
gulzarth3pun15h3r: Why you asked that?04:38
galmoxubuntu wouldn't require a whole reinstall then eh, i'm not looking to do that, i mean the machine runs fine with 11.04 and KDE it's just not good enough to be able to take 256 megs of ram away to allocate to a windows virtual machine04:39
gulzargalmo: try Debian LXDE . IT takes only 112MB on my machine with gnome apps04:39
gulzargalmo: with it you can easily run VB04:40
galmothe whole thing is I don't want to do a whole reinstall04:40
galmoi finally have this machine looking and acting *mostly* like I want it too04:40
galmoto04:41
gulzargalmo : then install LXDE on ubuntu and use it.... though it takes around  190MB ..04:41

MeganLWoulffeCan I get someone to PM me about a battery issue in Ubuntu 11.1005:23
Thelmariaanthony_t: You can avoid sending it to the background - that's one way which is easy. I have a script somewhere to kill the process once i've finished using it, but I can't rmember what host it's on, if you want me to look.05:23
bobweaverMeganLWoulffe: what does dmesg have to say05:24
gulzarEquilibrium: try default irc for apps . like for compiz #compiz for qwn #awn and so on. There you can find expert help.05:24
MeganLWoulffebobweaver: What specifically am I looking for, cause that's a crapload of info\05:24
Thelmariaanthony_t: But I'm not sure how to get the pid directly, sans ps | grep, sorry.05:25
bobweaverdmesg show all things that the kernel sees on boot so you are looking to see if it is there if there is any errors or not05:25
bobweaverthat would be the 1st place that I look MeganLWoulffe05:26
anthony_tThelmaria: no worries. Just wondered if you had anything on the top of your head. I'll let you know if I find an elegant solution.05:26

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 dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic05:29

haylo-bot_do you get the option to "install ubuntu"06:16
ubottutejas: The core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)06:16

Satanaasince they broke it themselves06:22
Satanaanone other to blame06:22
Jordan_UVustom: BURG isn't supported here. Do you know if 1680x1050 is a supported *VESA* mode on your hardware?06:22
ActionParsnipVustom: burg isn't supported here. You can set the grub res in /etc/default/grub  You will need to uncomment the line first06:22

uemanhey guys, is there an easy way to install Ubuntu onto a usb stick? Or should I just set it up as a live CD and use it off that?06:25
VustomJordan_U: I'm using 1680x1050 on the desktop as we speak, so wouldn't that mean yes?06:25
ActionParsnipVustom: that shows the lines to edit. Considering its on the screen for only a few seconds personally I wouldn't bother06:25
andrewh192ueman: hey, i was just at the website06:26
andrewh192ueman: there is a way to download a cd version as well as a usb stick..06:26
uemanandrewh192: which website?06:26
andrewh192ueman: http://www.ubuntu.com06:26
Jordan_UVustom: Not neccisarily. That's using native drivers, not VESA.06:26
uemanandrewh192: but is that an y different than a normal install or is it literally the same thing?06:26
VustomMy Pymouth also has a corrupt graphic, it just shoes Ubuntu 11.10 font with crappy like red dots :c06:26
ActionParsnipVustom: its a different driver. The command on the site will show the available resolutions06:26
VustomIt only goes up to 1600x1200 :/06:27
VustomIs there a way to upgrade VESA?06:27
Jordan_Uueman: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download06:27
andrewh192ueman: well, when u download it as a usb stick, it will only be a small part (the most basic part of the install) and the rest it downloads from the servers06:27
andrewh192ueman: when you actually are in the process of downloading06:27
ActionParsnipueman: use unetbootin. Its easy. Remember to MD5 test the ISO you downloaded06:27
Jordan_UVustom: No, you can't change what modes your hardware supports via VESA.06:28
Vustom;@06:28
ActionParsnipVustom: why are you so bothered? Its on the screen less than 10 seconds...06:29

ActionParsnipueman: if you boot the install cd a06:31
Jordan_Uueman: To run Ubuntu from a USB stick simply install it as you would to an internal drive.06:31
HansLandaanyone here know program macchanger?06:31
Satanaaputting the live disc on a usb will allow you to run ubuntu as a live cd06:31
Satanaaerr install disc06:32
haylo-bot_yeah you can make the live usb from live cd if you must- is better than windows anyway06:32
SatanaaHansLanda yes, but you dont need it06:32
haylo-bot_use startup dis creator06:32
haylo-bot_and set the persistence file!! :)06:33
ActionParsnipueman: you can install to the usb like a normal drive. I suggest you use ext2 and put a lot in ramfs to reduce wear on the usb storage06:33
Satanaahttp://www.pendrivelinux.com/06:33

dr_willisueman: theres different ways to put it on ysb06:34

dr_willis agree06:36

dr_willisi dont use macs. sono idea othem n06:37
Jordan_Uueman: Apple's BIOS implementation can't boot from USB, you'd need to install grub-efi (though booting via EFI will cause issues with many graphics drivers).06:37
haylo-bot_try a live cd on the mac and see how it responds06:37
uemani'm currently booted off a live cd06:38
haylo-bot_can you install from the live cd?06:38

Jordan_Uhaylo-bot_: Apple's BIOS implementation doesn't work with USB. It's a known problem.06:39
haylo-bot_oh thats righ tyou are making a persistent usb06:39
haylo-bot_use the usb creator in the live cd06:39
haylo-bot_it is a good program06:39
haylo-bot_and easy to use06:39
uemanand then my system will persist?06:39
haylo-bot_it has an feature where you can set apersisence drive06:40
haylo-bot_it auto sets it at 1G06:40
Jordan_Uhaylo-bot_: Did you see my message?06:40
haylo-bot_you just need to slide the bar up and make it more than 1G06:40
haylo-bot_no jordan06:40
Jordan_Uhaylo-bot_: Apple's BIOS implementation doesn't work with USB. It's a known problem.06:40
haylo-bot_i see sorry06:41
Satanaaafaik macs dont have a bios06:41
Jordan_Uueman: Can you boot the USB on a PC? It will be easier to fix things to be able to boot from a mac from there.06:41
Satanaaefi or something?06:41
Jordan_USatanaa: They also have a BIOS implementation, it just doesn't work with USB drives for some reason.06:41
psycho_oreosefi would be it, and there's elilo which could handle Mac06:42
SatanaaJordan_U im sure they dont have "bios" hehe06:42
haylo-bot_well it is good to note that they have a difficult time booting from usb06:42
haylo-bot_seems like that would make the machine worthless in some ways06:43
haylo-bot_lol06:43
uemanJordan_U: But I know I could boot OSX off usb, how come I can't boot linux?06:44
dahliais there a way I can make that bar at the top hide when the mouse is not near it?06:44
Jordan_Uueman: It can, just not via a BIOS based bootloader. You need to install grub-efi.06:44
Satanaa"ueman> Jordan_U: But I know I could boot OSX off usb, how come I can't boot linux?" because steve jobs didnt want that06:45
haylo-bot_so if you already have grub on a mac you can use usb?06:45
uemanJordan_U: So can I install grub-efi to boot the version of linux I've just installed to the USB key?06:45

Satanaaright now im in a "fist trugh the monitor mood" cuz of ubuntu.. so i dont really know what you mean right now qin07:03
qinhorchata: Or rather is it upgrade and if yes, did you change any compiz settings?07:03
horchataqin: no changes from the default outside of installing the propriatary drivers07:03
horchata11.10, fresh install07:03
horchataqin: nvidia accelerated graphics driver to be specific07:04
almoxarifeVustom: the final location you have showing here is not the one shown on the webpage07:05

sanduz2somsip, how about if i change the DNS provider on my router. isnt there some sort of local cache i can reset?07:13
ForsetiNow i have minimised skype.07:13
ForsetiI can control it at this time07:13
BertoXForseti, modify the notification panel whitelist07:13
SlartibartSomeone should add "required packages" like uswswap to the swapfaq on ubuntu.com, me thinks..07:13
somsipsanduz2: if your router acts as a DNS cache, possibly. It's a very wide question.07:13
SatanaaAbdu the way you setup the first nic, do the samewith the second07:13
ForsetiBertoX, i am new to linux, and dunno how to do this. :s07:14
qingaurav_dreamweav: Most likely your windows did not shutdown properly.07:14
Vustomalmoxarife: My GNOME 3 looks like Windows 98 now :c07:14
sanduz2somsip, ive seen some sites suggestion to restart nscd (or ipconfig /flushdns on windows). then what do these things do?07:14
VustomI've screwed it up D:07:14
gaurav_dreamweavqin, i don't have any other windows os i only use ubuntu07:14
SatanaaForseti if you are new to linux.. ubuntu 11.10 is the wrong choice, its not user friendly07:15
BertoXForseti, gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"07:15
somsipsanduz2: posibly they do things on windows. If you ran your own bind server, you could just stop and restart bind. That's what I do. But bind only caches DNS that are served to it by your DNS provider, hence my original question07:15
Satanaaand what BertoX showed you can cause issues too07:15
qingaurav_dreamweav: right. sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g07:15
ForsetiSatanaa, then what you recommmend for newbie?07:16
sanduz2somsip, hmm, not running bind here.07:16
haylo-bot_yeah shouldnt be a big deal to get an icon in your launcher07:16
SatanaaForseti older version of ubuntu, or linux mint :)07:16
gaurav_dreamweavqin, what this will do07:16
BertoXSatanaa,  please specify issues I can encouter with this modification please ? I do it since 11.04 (especially ofr skype) and I never had any issue07:16
somsipsanduz2: then when you 'dig' an an address, you will be querying your DNS provider (google, opendns, whatever)07:16
qingaurav_dreamweav: Will install tool for mounting ntfs partitions07:16
SatanaaBertoX it can add icons there you dont want07:17
ForsetiSatanaa, hm, 10.04 is good?07:17
somsipsanduz2: And if they have a cached DNS entry that has not expired, that's what you'll get. You can't force them to refresh their cache07:17
BertoXyou mean any application that want to put a tray icon ?07:17
Satanaabetter than 11.10 if you want it to be user friendly07:17
sanduz2somsip, weird. the reason that im asking all this is because even after i change my dns provider on my router, all my requests still seem to go through the same route (traceroute)07:17
Satanaa2 Forseti07:17
Satanaa@*07:17
haylo-bot_i amusing 11.0407:17
Satanaayea07:17
sanduz2somsip, so i thought maybe something local was causing that07:18
somsipsanduz2: those are two separate issues.07:18
BertoXnot really an issue then :)07:18
Vustomalmoxarife: I'm still confused where I need to unzip the folder?07:18
gaurav_dreamweavqin, but can u tell me how its done in 11.04 without any problem.. how come in this it is getting happen07:18
haylo-bot_it performs absurdly well07:18
ForsetiSatanaa, i am migrating from windows. With windows i can do more than linux. So, now i want to learn same things to do with linux. So you are recommending ubuntu?07:18
Blue1only in linux would you never do:   man unzip07:18
Forseti10.04*07:18
darius_Hey everyone, I'm having some issues, my DPGK file is missing.07:19
Forsetidarius_, sveikas. :)07:19
Blue1Forseti: puppy linux or linux mint might be good for starters07:19
SlartibartBlue1: Can you do that anywhere else? Mac?07:19
haylo-bot_hey guys what is the key bind to bring minimized windows to front for Forseti skye problem?07:19
darius_forseti, what?07:19
llutz_darius_: what is DPGK?07:19
almoxarifeVustom: the folder can be unzipped anywhere where you can get to it, it should have unzipped already with the first command line shown on the example07:19
haylo-bot_he keeps minimizing skype07:20
SatanaaForseti http://www.xubuntu.org/ is nice too07:20
Forsetidarius_, sorry, thought that you are form Lithuania. :)07:20
lijuhai anyone can tell Install Gloobus Flow With Nautilus Integration In Ubuntu07:20
Satanaaits ubuntu with xfce instead of unity07:20
qingaurav_dreamweav: First, I did not see ntfs partition since 5 years, besided having it whan running linux is odd, second ntfs support in linux is artifitial so strange things may happen.07:20
darius_llutz, i dont know its a ubuntu program07:20
Blue1Slartibart: do what?07:20
ForsetiSatanaa, hmz now i am realy confused. :D07:20
llutz_darius_: /usr/bin/dpkg you mean?07:20
darius_yes07:20
darius_that file is missing07:20
Blue1darius_: how do you know it's missing?07:21
SatanaaForseti its more user friendly but still latest version07:21
lijuhai anyone can tell Install Gloobus Flow With Nautilus Integration In Ubuntu07:21
ForsetiSatanaa, Xubuntu?07:21
llutz_darius_: why did you remove it? it's essential07:21
SatanaaForseti yes :)07:21
lijuhai anyone can tell Install Gloobus Flow With Nautilus Integration In Ubuntu07:21
Vustomalmoxarife: I unzipped it myself and put it in ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions, I am new to GNOME 3/Ubuntu remember :)07:21
ForsetiSatanaa, better is mint or xubuntu?07:21
darius_I was looking into the error in a forum and it said that my error code meant that the file was missing or corrupt, so I looked and it wasn't there.07:21
SatanaaForseti i would say both really :)07:22
lijuhi i am new to xchat07:22
Satanaaso you do have a choice :)07:22
ForsetiSatanaa, i know, that my questions are so dumb, but i need to know, cuz i really want to learn how to use linux. :s07:22
llutz_darius_: "ls -l /usr/bin/dpkg" in terminal,   any output?07:22
darius_I downloaded a .rpm file that is supposed to be the dpkg but I don't know what to do with it07:22
Blue1darius_: if you type which dpkg                  what do you get?07:22
lijupls tell me the solution for how to Install Gloobus Flow With Nautilus Integration In Ubuntu07:22
somsip!patience | liju07:22
ubottuliju: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/07:22
ikoniadarius_: rpms are not debs07:22
llutz_darius_: ubuntu uses .deb not rpm07:23
ikoniadarius_: you can't use rpms with ubuntu07:23
SatanaaForseti i do get you.. i have used linux for atleast 10 years, and ubuntu 11.10 confuses me07:23
lijuok07:23
darius_if i type dpkg it tells me that its not installed and when i try to install it it says its the latest version07:23
llutz_darius_: "ls -l /usr/bin/dpkg" in terminal,   any output?07:23
SatanaaForseti i might just install xubuntu myself now when i think about it07:23
Blue1darius_: do an echo $path and paste the line here07:23
Vustomhow to see what version of gnome I have?07:24
qindarius_: history | grep dpkg07:24
ForsetiSatanaa, then ubuntu 11,10 really not for me. :D07:24
Blue1sorry echo $PATH07:24
darius_llutz, http://pastie.org/276631507:24
SatanaaForseti its not really for anyone.. new, average, pro.. :)07:24
almoxarifeVustom: didn't work for me, in either location, not sure where the issue is, operator or code07:24
darius_and everyoen I have no idea what any of that means I'm new to linux.07:24
ForsetiSatanaa, hm, so for what? :D07:25
llutz_darius_: so again, why did you remove it?07:25
darius_as I said before I didn't remove it.07:25
llutz_ darius_: history | grep dpkg07:25
darius_How would I be able to remove it I'm not root?07:25
Blue1darius_: then it's either not in yor path or you removed it07:26
llutz_Blue1: see the paste, it's "gone"07:26
darius_blue1 http://pastie.org/276632207:26
SatanaaForseti i dont know really07:27
Blue1not enough contrast to read07:27
gaurav_dreamweavqin, thanks man 1:)07:27
ForsetiSatanaa, Okay, thank you very much, now i am going to choose one of those. :D07:27
armelle#Browsing07:27
qindarius_: It will be silly, but: lsb_release -a07:28
SatanaaForseti thanks for asking, now i know what to do myself :)07:28
ForsetiSatanaa, heh, you are really nice person. ;)07:28
Blue1okay it looks like you did an ls -l /usr/bin/dpkg07:28
llutz_Blue1: because i told him07:28
Satanaayou too Forseti :)07:28
darius_blue what exactly does that mean?07:29
llutz_darius_: nothing important07:29
darius_I'm an OS X person, but this is a PC, so I decided to use Linux on it.07:30
bkovacsGood Man07:30
kriss_Ohh ive made it all work here. Except printers.. I need to be able to somhow add a printer based on its IP (networked printer ofcourse) but when i use the tool to add printers it just give me their names. I cant add by ip somhow07:30
darius_I know very little about this so far.07:30
Satanaamac's are pc's too07:30
ForsetiSatanaa, going for xubuntu 11.04. :)07:30
Blue1well ls -l says to list the details on the file the follows07:30
llutz_ < qin> darius_: It will be silly, but: lsb_release -a07:30
SatanaaForseti xubuntu 11.10 for me :)07:30
BertoXhow to safely remove gnome-power-manager in oneiric please ?07:30
llutz_Blue1: because i told him, to check if the binary is present or he just messed his PATH up07:31
bkovacsI had to update my kernel to 3.0.0-13 to get my epson printer to work07:31
darius_i did that command07:31
qinllutz_: irssi 0.8.15 (Natty?)07:31
darius_it said no LSB moduals07:31
Blue1llutz_: yeah the windows solution (reboot) might fix the problem07:31
llutz_qin: maverick07:31
llutz_Blue1: nonsense07:32
darius_is there anyway I could install it from a backup or download a backup and put it in there?07:32
llutz_darius_: what version of ubuntu are you running? "cat /etc/issue"07:33
darius_11.1007:33
bkovacsdarius upgrade your kernel to 3.0.0-13. You need to enable the pre-release updates in sources. Than use synaptic package manager to mark all updates and install the newer kernel.07:33
darius_how do I update a kernel07:33
qindarius_: Have you attempted upgrade?07:33
llutz_bkovacs: what? how is that related to a missing binary?07:33
bkovacsKernel 3.0.0-12 which comes with 11.10 has some issues with printer detection07:33
darius_apt-get upgrade just tells me that my chromium failed to install properly and to try -f install07:34
qinbkovacs: Installing without dpkg is fairly difficult?07:34
llutz_darius_: you could get the dpkg.deb from packages.ubuntu.org and extract the file07:34
bkovacsSo it's not a detection problem?07:35
llutz_bkovacs: scroll back and read07:35
bkovacsok07:35
kriss_is there any procedure how to add a printer by its IP instead of its bonjourname ?07:35
psypher246hello all, does anyone have some advise on how to get canonical's attention to fix a major bug. As far as myself and a bunch of people are concerned, unity is completely broken when using nvidia twinview to display on more than one monitor and we are getting nowhere on launchpad07:35
qindarius_: Have you upgraded 11.04 to 11.10?07:36
darius_no its from a disc fresh install on a nuked hdd07:36
=== jos is now known as Guest86131
darius_and that website isnt actually a real website07:36
Infektedanyone make any themes for ubuntu 11.10 yet?07:36
darius_its just a picture of an ad07:36
Satanaayes there are loads of gnome3/gtk3 themes Infekted07:37
llutz_darius_: packages.ubuntu.com, sry07:37
darius_oh okay.07:37
Infektedso gtk3 themes work?07:37
Satanaayes07:37
Infektedcause i dont use gnome shell07:37
Satanaaunity is ontop of gnome3 :)07:37
Infektedim in unity07:37
Satanaayes07:37
BertoXSatanaa, I found by myself an icon that shouldn't appear in the bar. So I reverted back the whitelist to default. Now I want to add an application in the whitelist. How to identify the name to put in the whitelist please ?07:37
Satanaaunity is ontop of gnome307:37
Infektedcool07:37
Infektedthanx07:38
SatanaaBertoX i told you :)07:38
BertoXyep :)07:38
Satanaawhat program is it?07:38
BertoXxchat07:38
darius_http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=dpkg&searchon=names&suite=oneiric&section=all which package and how do i do it?07:38
bkovacsI'm on gnome xchat with gnome shell07:38
Satanaayou just add 'xchat' afaik :)07:39
kriss_psypher246 i can recommend install gnome-shell and gdm to remove other options than gnome classic.. that seems to work just fine if you want work done.. unity is a nice looking toy.. its not very useful for working07:39
BertoXI added XChat07:39
BertoXlet me try without caps07:39
llutz_darius_: "uname -m"  32 or 64bit?07:39
darius_3207:39
darius_amd07:39
llutz_darius_: so you got i686?07:40
darius_thats what all the packages say yes07:40
psypher246kriss_: no thanks. I want ot use unity, i like unity and it's been working fine in natty07:41
llutz_darius_: then download the package "dpkg" i38607:41
BertoXSatanaa, thx ! without caps, it works07:41
Satanaanp BertoX :)07:41
SystemParadoxmorning all07:41
BertoXForseti, then don't do the modification I gave you. I found at least one issue as Satanaa  said ...07:41
BertoXjust add 'Skype'  in the list07:42
psypher246kriss_: twinview has been broken since oneiric, and as unity is awesome for work, not just a toy, I can't really work in any other environment anymore07:42
bkovacsBoth Unity and Gnome Shell work fine for me in 11.10. I currently prefer Gnome shell. But don't mind switching to Unity one in a while.07:42
kriss_ok. well its a free envirorment hehe. Personally i was like.. Damn unity go away.. It was easy in 11.04 but alot more tricky in 11.10 However only in 11.10 does it work flawless with domais and windows shares07:42
darius_okay i downloaded, now what do I do?07:42
psypher246kriss_: once you get to know unity you realise how awesome it it07:42
kriss_well i cant find ANYTHING in unity.. in 11.04 i could just barely find the login screen which lets me change the default session07:43
bkovacsBoth are new desktop enviroments and will take a little time to get used to. And both will eventually mature.07:43
Satanaapsypher246 really? im moving to xubuntu 11.10 hehe07:43
psypher246press super key type login07:43
llutz_darius_: "ar xv dpkg.....deb /usr/bin/dpkg"07:43
psypher246not hard at all07:43
kriss_i guess.. but i have good reasons to make gnome look as close to windows as it possibly can.07:43
ForsetiBertoX, Ok, thx. :))07:43
SystemParadoxI have two ubuntu machines here, one with 11.04 and one with 11.10. Both have ATI cards and dual monitors, which work, but neither of them will save any changes I make in the catalyst control center, even in administrative mode. Is this a known problem?07:43
bkovacsIf you want a windows look than use Kubuntu07:43
kriss_I got like 1000 windows users who cant pick their noses without help07:43
grendal-primewow07:44
grendal-primedude. you should take THAT to off topic07:44
grendal-primewhere are the ops for that stuff?07:44
kriss_sorry07:44
darius_llutz, ar: dpkg.....deb: No such file or directory07:45
llutz_darius_: replace with the correct filename of the dpkg.deb you downloaded07:45
bkovacsCheck this out Ricard Stallman Eats something from his foot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I25UeVXrEHQ07:45
darius_okay07:45
llutz_bkovacs:  Do you have any ubuntu support related question?07:46
psypher246Satanaa: xubuntu is cool,but like i said, i really love unity, when it works07:47
psypher246so i will stick with it till it does07:47
darius_llutz it stills says no such file or directory07:47
Satanaapsypher246 i dont know why.. even the dock is "broken" :P07:48
llutz_darius_: cd into the dir you downloaded the file to. then "ar xv dpk<TAB-key><TAB-key>"07:48
llutz_darius_: it should expand the filename07:48
psypher246Satanaa: how do u mean broken?07:49
bkovacsNope just browsing07:49
Satanaayou can click to open a program, but you cant click to minimize it etc07:49
bkovacsSeeing if I can help07:49
psypher246Satanaa: never really wanted to do that so not an issue for me07:49
diverdudeIs there a command to change the title of the command window instead of having to use the mouse?07:49
bkovacsAdding a little humor to our chat07:49
llutz_bkovacs: then pls stop your random offtopic stuff07:50
psypher246i minimize using the panel07:50
darius_what do you mean cd into the directory?07:50
xatconcan any body tell .....how to get rid of Gwenview...from ubuntu 11.1007:50

xatconi cant format my pen drive07:51
psypher246Satanaa: once your learn the shortcut keys, unity becomes a pleasure. but I get that people with disabilities are limited, so i think Ubuntu has hurt those people a little, but then again, I have never tried any of the assistive technologies so i dunno how limiting it is07:51
psypher246right now I just wish i can find a away to get canonicals attention to the big issues07:52
Satanaapsypher246 people with a logic mind are also limited07:52
darius_okay I have this: darius@darius:~/Downloads$  but when I type in the command it still says file or directory not found07:52
Satanaaso retarded people and logic people are hit07:52
psypher246Satanaa: totally disagee07:52
xatconhelp me out ...idont wana use this 11.10 ...how i go back07:53

xatconto 11.0407:53
psypher246Satanaa: agreed07:53
qin xatcon i am afraid, reinstall, but...07:53
qin!nounity | xatcon07:53
ubottuxatcon: 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 dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic07:53
Satanaaanyways i guess unity isent so bad.. ubuntu 11.10 has must made me see it with hate07:54
psypher246Satanaa: why?07:54
psypher246what makes you hate it so?07:54

osmosis_paulGood morning i'm having an issue with Yuuguu since i install Ubuntu 11.10, but if i create a new account in my Ubuntu looks like works07:57
llutz_darius_: "sudo cp usr/bin/dpkg /usr/bin/dpkg "07:57
psypher246sorry i haven't had that issue, others but not that07:57
llutz_darius_: 1st path without leading /07:57
Satanaathe other issues are ok tho, they were fixable07:58
osmosis_pauli have the erro code that Yuuggu throw but i cannot understand somebody can help me?07:58
osmosis_pauli can paste the error and put in her07:58
Satanaapsypher246 and many have this issue, but none knows how to fixit07:58
osmosis_paulhere07:58
diverdudeIs there a command to change the title of the command window instead of having to use the mouse?07:58
darius_what do you mean by that07:58
llutz_darius_: "sudo cp usr/bin/dpkg /usr/bin/dpkg "        exact like this07:59
psypher246Satanaa: i have had many weird annoying issues in ubuntu these past 7 years, each new version brings new issues when they fix other, so I cannot say how happy I am that FINALLY canonicval is gonna spend an entire release cycle on JUSt fixing bugs, it's high time, i have been saying it for years but then unity came along and I had to wait all over again07:59
llutz_darius_: without quotes07:59
darius_okay I did that but no output07:59
llutz_darius_: "ls -l /usr/bin/dpkg" should show the file after that07:59
Satanaaim just gonna do xubuntu and hope that such a MASSIVE issues are gone hehe07:59
Satanaa-a08:00
llutz_darius_: and pls no pastie.org, its really hard to read :)08:00
psypher246Satanaa: yeah sounds like a good idea for now, sorry you can't experience the awesomeness of untity that i appreciate08:00
qindiverdude: gnome-terminal -t your_title08:00

almoxarifeosmosis_paul: must you use it?08:00
darius_It's really easy for me, I guess I just have a good monitor haha08:00
llutz_darius_: so it worked, "sudo apt-get install --reinstall dpkg" now08:00
Satanaapsypher246 i dunno, i used to use gnome2 and docky.. the unity dock is quite a downgrade really too hehe08:01

almoxarifeosmosis_paul: nothing there yet08:09
kriss_satanaa yeah thats what i do.. i also installed gdm and removed the other choices from the folder so there is ONLY the gnome-2 lookalike now.08:09

SnowiePlease help. hopelessly stuck at the grub rescue prompt. installed alongside win7. used the live cd. all i did was shrink the 2 windows partitions, and create 2 new partitions / and /home, install ubuntu. reboot and straight to grub rescue. I have been on ubuntu, and i know it means it can't find grub.conf, but im really not sure how to fix it. now after reinstall it looks like there are 2 swaps on the disk as well. tried formatt08:49
Snowieing ubuntu ext4 partitions back to empty space, but it wont remove the swaps. any ideas08:49
grendal-primeya see we dont use allot of desktop apps usually if we need to i do a gnome minimal install.08:50
grendal-primewhy is gnome not the default for this anymore...kinda werid.08:50
grendal-primehold on.08:50
gorillanoanananagrendal-prime:  because they are targeting the tablet market.. that's why..08:51
grendal-primegrrrrr god i hate tablets08:51
gorillanoanananaespecially with unity08:51
jdtmsnowie -  in Gparted or whatever you are using, right click the swap partitions and there should be an unlock button or something like that08:51
jdtmit'll make the key symbol next to it dissappear08:52
jdtmthen you are free to delete it08:52
Snowiejdtm: no gparted unless it's on the live CD. does the same exist in ubuntu disk utility, will look08:52

ikoniagrendal-prime: if you know it will remedy a problem, great, but just suggesting random things like "use LTS" or "use a server install" to fix a gnome 3 theme issue is not useful08:55

grendal-primei do not know what will happen08:56
ikoniagnome2 is dead, you should start planning for that now08:56

jdtmas far as fixing grub manually, i have no clue.08:57
jdtmlike i said,08:57

iceroot!nox | negueba11:09
ubottunegueba: To start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode11:09

kriss_iceroot yeah ok its ubuntu 11.10 with gnome classic - when im running the add printer app in gnome it scans for network printers and finds alot. however it just tells me what type and model it finds. i need somthing like an IP or hostname or somthing..

lucky105my nvidia xserver settings show max color depth 24  while windows has 32 ???11:13
auronandaceDanielpk: there is no space next to the partition to resize it into11:13
Danielpkauronandace: so i cant do that?11:14
kriss_iceroot well any way to add a network printer would be nice.. at least in windows i can just type in the IP in a window and it will show the printer ready to add..11:14
auronandaceDanielpk: you'd have to move the extended partition first11:14
iceroot!cups | kriss_11:15
ubottukriss_: Printing in Ubuntu is done with cups. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Printers - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsPrinters - http://linuxprinting.org - Printer sharing: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NetworkPrintingFromWindows11:15

auronandaceDanielpk: why do you have an extended partition with just a swap partition in it?11:15
keda87i'm installing ubunntu maverick on my win7 with wubi, i'm choosed 10GB size, and succesfully installed, but can i increase ubuntu space?? cz free 2GB rite now11:15
kriss_iceroot uhmm actually its more the other way around.. the printer is connected to a windows AD server (via network).11:15
Danielpkauronandace: humm i dont know, was other person who installed.11:15
iceroothours: if the widget is downloaded from somewhere else i dont know how to get the source-code but on there website there should be the code11:16
=== jimmy8888 is now known as evelynREAL
Danielpkauronandace: how i can move the partition?11:16
hoursiceroot, good tip, thanks.11:16
icerootkriss_: hm, then samba with cups should be correct i guess11:16
iceroot!samba | kriss_11:16
ubottukriss_: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.11:16
iceroothm not the ones i hoped for11:17
auronandaceDanielpk: since its just swap, you can delete it and make a new one at the other end of the disk (delete the extended partition too)11:17

killswitchguyok i will try11:21
kriss_iceroot there isnt. its too simple in the printer add in gnome3 (classic mode) you can add.. Heck even the IP shows localhost..11:21
icerootkriss_: maybe because the printer is already connected with your cups? and cups is running on localhost11:21

PolahAdhamSabry, install-grub /device/name  will reinstall it on the device you specify, but that might not remove the GNOME style on it.

Wilczekzetui: Try to install using Synaptic, but first add apt repository ppa:ferramroberto/java12:51
ActionParsnipWilczek: that will violate the java license12:52
ActionParsnipWilczek: Oracle don't want their Java product packaging12:52
zetuiLANUAGE=en apt-get install sun-java5-bin12:52
zetuithis one gives the same output12:52
zetuiE: Aucun paquet ne correspond au paquet sun-java5-bin12:53
ActionParsnipzetui: you need to go to www.java.com and download the .bin mark it as executable and run it (copy to /opt first)12:53
ActionParsnipzetui: then symlink the plugin file to your browser's plugins folder12:53
zetuijava its nothing to do with browser12:54
ActionParsnipzetui: it can be a browser plugin...12:56
ActionParsnipzetui: so, yes it can12:56
zetuiActionParsnip:  listen in my case12:57
zetuithere is nothing to do with browser12:57
zetuimy question is simply why i can't install sun-java5-bin from apt ?12:57
Snowieok. so this is officially my worst ubuntu install experience ever. finally decided to ditch win7 and just install ubuntu... purple screen of death. know how to get arround psod to at least boot, but now, saned fails to start. been googling a good 2 hours. what is going wrong here12:58
icerootzetui: because its not allowed anymore to provide that package12:58
obert-mm i cannot halt the system: it'll remains in the terminal window without shutdown all12:58
icerootzetui: you have to download directly from oracle or use a download and install script12:58
icerootzetui: which is imo not in a package until now12:58
ActionParsnipzetui: no, its not packaged anymore12:58
icerootzetui: there is only openjdk12:59
obert-unmount: /run/lock not unmounted   *Will now halt -- System halted.  but then no shutdown happens12:59
obert-seems that killall is gone bad (?)13:00
ActionParsnipzetui: I told you it wasn't packaged literally 10 mins ago13:00
zetuihttp://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=5669013:00
Snowieobert-: i believe HALT and SHUTDOWN are 2 very different states. google that perhaps13:00
zetuiso the best way if i get13:00
zetuii have to download it from here : http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=56690 and13:01
bencchow can I check the return code of a script/command?13:01
zetuiand run the script ?13:01
icerootbencc: #bash13:01
llutzbencc: echo $?13:01
ActionParsnipzetui: thats the only way to get sun java13:01
obert-Snowie: i dunno how to explain :) i made sudo halt in the shell, and the machine is not shutdowning13:01
ActionParsnipzetui: yes, copy it to /opt  and run it using sudo13:01
zetuiok perfect let me check13:01
icerootobert-: sounds like acpi (or what it is called) is not running the poweroff-function13:02
ActionParsnipzetui: so is this to do with a browser?13:02
Snowieobert-: sudo shutdown now13:02
guampajoin #ubuntu-es13:02
ActionParsnipzetui: are you wanting a java plugin for firefox?13:02
obert-Snowie: no i cannot type in this window13:02
zetuino there is nothing to do with browser13:02
zetuii try to setup a stream server13:03
icerootzetui: why not using openjdk?13:03
zetuiand the package is required for13:03
obert-Snowie: it is the window that appears when you halted the system:) the list of things that are killed correctly or failed13:03
obert-sorry eh13:03
icerootzetui: ah ok its a dependency to sun-java6-jdk13:03
ActionParsnipzetui: ahhh, its still the same package, you jut need to setup the java source to be that folder13:03
zetuii don't know if there is a difference between openjdk and java ?13:03
Snowieobert-: what are you typing to make that happen?13:03
ph4nt0m_hi can someone help with this error im trying to remove shorewall13:04

meta-coderWhat is the best ident server available for Oneiric?13:04
ph4nt0m_pls13:04
icerootzetui: the difference is that openjdk is free and opensource, sun-java is bad from a bad company and not free13:04
obert-Snowie: nothing. i'd typed during the session sudo halt and then waiting that the system will be shutdowned.13:04
icerootzetui: if you have the chance use openjdk instead of oracle/sun-java13:04
icerootmeta-coder: the one you like most13:05
Snowieobert-: sudo halt and sudo shutdown are different13:05
Snowielet me try this13:05
Snowie!halt13:05
Snowie!shutdown13:05
ActionParsnipmeta-coder: there is no single best software fr anything in any OS13:05

ActionParsnipansonjack: copy it to /opt and mark it as executable, then run it13:06
antismapwith my eee pc i didn't understand why Jdownloader was so slow.. changing to sun java fixed the problem13:06
ActionParsnipmeta-coder: no idea, why is popular a thing?13:06
ActionParsnipmeta-coder: if arora was 'more popular' than firefox, would you switch browser?13:07
icerootmeta-coder: http://popcon.ubuntu.com13:07
proudy3uh.. need help also. ive got a i3-2310 and intel HD3000 (thinkpad x220) - using ubuntu 11.10 (xubuntu design) - trying 2 play minecraft, which runs smoothly bu Ive got some rly annoying graphic bugs :(13:07
proudy3http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/51/bildschirmfotoam2011102.png/13:07
icerootantismap: and because of that you say that openjdk is slower then sun-java.13:07
icerootantismap: because of one app13:07
meta-coderActionParsnip, :) just trying know about the available identd server choices..13:07
antismapno several apps actually13:08
antismapwith the eee pc you feel directly the difference13:08
proudy3anyone can help me? :p13:08
antismaptry with an old computer you'll see13:08
icerootantismap: working fine here on eeepc 90113:08
ActionParsnipansonjack: you can then symlink the plugin file to your browser's plugins folder13:08
antismapdid you try with sun java also ?13:08
ActionParsnipantismap: I use fatrat, works well13:08
cyphahow can I hibernate?13:08
icerootantismap: biggest difference is that i am using free software, no other difference noticed here13:08
antismapah on eclipse also it helped a lot13:09
HalabundI tried using ubuntu for a while again, but something serious comes up every time.  Right now I was browsing some PDFs and started reading one using the builtin viewer, all using the keyboard.   Now I find that the touchpad is completely non-functional, and I cannot move the mouse pointer.  How do I get out of such glitches?13:09
Snowieok, so it looks like purple screen of death and saned errors might be caused by bad drivers. how can i install radeon 97XX drivers from CLI???13:09

CorrytonappleLemme try a cable shorter than the one I am using which is like four foot long.  BBL then13:46
chomanubottu: yeah I will look into that.  This workstation is connected only to an internal network and has no access to the regular world.  So a CD/DVD with the appropriate updates is kinda what I am looking13:46
ubottuchoman: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)13:46
chomanfor.   Next thing is a patch/repo server on the internal network and redirect apt-get update to look there.13:46

usr13Onkeltem: I use recordmydesktop13:51
Onkeltemusr13: in gnome 3 there is some builtint mechanizm13:51
Onkeltembut I don't understand how it works, how to make it record something correctly13:51
usr13OkropNick: Ok, well, I've yet to use it.13:51
usr13OkropNick: I've actually only done screencasting on my 10.04 box and I've done it on the 11.10 but only via VNC13:53
Onkeltemusr13: when I pressed that shortcut which start it, gnome-shell shows nothing (record button/icon e.g.), and is restarting in 20-30 seconds. Then I find recorded file in my home.13:53

stephnihow can i convert avi to 3gp with mencoder13:54
OnkeltemActionParsnip: yeah, xvidcap is good, I used it before. Istanbul is what I disliked. Kazam is the best, but lacks many options13:54
OnkeltemActionParsnip: now when we have g3, just want to learn how to use it )13:54
usr13Onkeltem: May be kind of like the difference between gtk-recordmydesktop and recordmydesktop, one has GUI controls and the other is just CLI13:55

empityon ubuntu server, I made a mistake removing one directory for the slapd package13:55
empityso I thought I can just remove and reinstall it13:55
ActionParsnipBadLarry: glad you are enjoying it13:55
Onkeltemusr13: thanks, I'll try it13:55
empitysince the configuration is wrong, but "purge -f" or "remove -f" need to have that file13:55
BadLarryActionParsnip: thank you, I was surprised at how smooth it went13:56
empityand i can't reinstall it, wtf wtf wtf :?13:56
stephnilem check it out13:56
usr13Onkeltem: Should be some documentation somewhere.  What is the package name?13:56
empitycan't I just say "reinstall it" rewriting the original files?13:56
ActionParsnipBadLarry: I aways clean install personally, fewer issues :)13:56
Onkeltemusr13: have no idea. It is part of gnome-shell13:57
BadLarryActionParsnip: I may still do that, I figured I'd try an upgrade, see how it went and if it botched things, do a fresh install. Just figured I should share that the upgrade went very well13:57

vatzecHi. :) I am using a wireless network. I can connect to it and access its servers using their Internet hostnames, but I can't connect to anything outside the network. I get proper `host <ipaddress>` responses and I can ping external servers, but the pings are a bit delayed and contain words "Redirect Host(New nexthop: <ip here>". Do you know what is the problem?13:59

laserbledhi, can some1 five the equivalent of httpd - s in ubuntu please14:00
jriblaserbled: hmm?14:01
jriblaserbled: httpd is called apache2 in ubuntu. Not sure if that's your question.14:02
laserbledjrib, the httpd -S equivalent in ubuntu ; when i give apache2 -S it says bad username14:02
jriblaserbled: yes, that's a consequence of how debian/ubuntu write the apache configuration14:02
Onkeltemusr13: good! thank you a lot. The guy told in the video - it doesn't work )) I wonder how they are releasing stuff which doesn't work14:03
laserbledum so what should i do - some1 asked for my httpd -s output14:03

adi_in /etc/samba/smb.conf is it correct to write "browsable" or "browseable" (note the 'e' in "browsEable"). Some tutorials use one versions, others another version. Is there a common typo?14:04
laserbledjrib,  oh okie, llutz thanks14:04
usr13Onkeltem: I think he was talking about the keyboard shrot-cut (that doesn't work).14:04
jribadi_: read « man smb.conf » (they are synonymous)14:05
shpmy micro does not work (internal micro boost off in alsamixer but if i enable it there is a big big big noise)14:05
