GremuchnikHi. how do I edit the applications list in GNOME3 to add an icon to an application shown without it? thanks!00:01
Scuniziconbot: logged in under your user name?00:01
ActionParsnipmikeru: i believe so, you can enable the systray item etc00:02
mikeruQ: can I install GNOME3 and keep unity?00:02
mikeruActionParsnip: not with the notification area (I already have that on)00:02
Scuniziconbot: sudo service lightdm start00:02
Gremuchnikmikeru, yes, simply install gnome-shell and then logout and login with a "gnome" session00:02
mikeruActionParsnip: but I think it used to display download/upload speed in the Dock, much like Chrome displays download progress on the Dock00:03
mikeruI might be confusing it with the Mac version though.00:03
mikeruGremuchnik: will that install all Gnome 3 stuff?00:03
ActionParsnipmikeru: it can be made to show more, or you can  disable te tray icon and it will live in the launcher00:03
mikerulike, all the standard GNOME 3 stuff installed by default in Fedora and <insertdistributionshippingnome3>?00:04

mikeruActionParsnip: I only used Gnome 3 once, when it was still alpha or whatever they denoted it (and it was slow and unstable as hell). while I don't intend to stick to it, I'd like to test it00:05

psychx-Is it simple to dual-boot multiple linux distros?00:06
ActionParsnipmikeru: could propose it on brainstorm.ubuntu.com00:06
mikeruI would, but so far I've seen that whatever is proposed on brainstorm is ignored...00:06
Scunizipsychx-: if you want to do that just to check out other distros.. install them into a virtual machine with virtualbox.. much easier.. espicaially if you decide to "not" like the distro.. it's easy to delete.00:06
_mustafa_ubuntu's lekka ek sa00:07
mikeruand some blog post I once read said that the only things that they implement from brainstorm, were in fact planned already by Canonical.00:07
psychx-Scunizi: Ok, I will try that. What is the typical app to use? VirtualBox?00:09
Scunizipsychx-: yep.. virtualbox.org if you want to get version with usb support et.al.. otherwise I believe it's also in the repos with all the non-free stuff ripped out of it.00:10
ActionParsnipmikeru: http://www.webupd8.org/2011/09/integrate-transmission-with-unity.html00:10

ubottuTor is a program to route connections through several servers for anonymity. It is in Ubuntu's repositories, but the Tor Project recommends using their Tor packages due to past issues with Ubuntu's. For setup info, see option (2) of https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en | To use Tor on freenode, see !tor-sasl00:46
yoaino3vI looked there just a lot of nothing00:46

urlin2uyoaino3v, or you can get it that way that is00:56
micromis there a plugin for libreoffice to save to an on-line SVN repository instead of saving to the local drive?00:58
Shirakawasunastealth-: I'm confused about the blank screen/gui/prompt statement. If you can access a terminal on that computer, you can uninstall the driver (e.g. remove the nvidia packages) with apt, then they can no longer load.00:59
stealth-Yes, I'm aware of that.01:00
Shirakawasunastealth-: then other packages will step in and fill the gap - if nvidia, then nouveau or vesa01:00
stealth-But I have absolutely no idea what it installed.01:00
Marmelodovanyone know why my mouse automatically grabs stuff when I single click for no apparent reason01:00
Shirakawasunastealth-: dpkg-query --list | grep nvid (or whatever)01:00
Marmelodovand don't know how to replicate it either01:00
jribMarmelodov: your mouse could be broken.  See if it happens with another mouse01:01
Marmelodovyeah happens when I use my mouse or touchpad01:01
stealth-Shirakawasuna: I have nvidia-96-updates, nvidia-common, and nvidia-settings-updates. Remove all of those, and things should go back to as they were?01:01
ShirakawasunaMarmelodov: like alt+click?01:01
Rothamhey.. how can I reset unity/system settings from the terminal in 11.1001:01
tashis using visudo the suggested way to add someone to sudoers?01:01
jribtash: of course01:01
Rothami changed a couple settings and it crashed01:01
tashor, just edit /etc/group and add the user to the admin group01:01
Marmelodovlike if I were to click and hold01:01
Jordan_URotham: For unity and compiz settings only, "unity --reset".01:01
Marmelodovbut stops if i click again01:02
Shirakawasunastealth-: if you remove those, it should hopefully default to nouveau or vesa, which is the default.01:02
tashjrib: second question ^01:02
stealth-Shirakawasuna: Alright, I'll give it a shot.01:02
jribtash: depends on what you want to do.  If all you want to do is give the user full sudo access, then just add them to the admin group (sudo adduser USERNAME admin).  Do not edit /etc/group....01:02
SwashBucklahello, I would like to use a custom Xsession, instead of the default Ubuntu session manager, BUT _keep_ the default Ubuntu login manager. Anyone done this? This seems relevant but does not quite meet my needs: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CustomXSession01:02
urlin2uMarmelodov, have you made any adjustments to compiz?01:02
Shirakawasunastealth-: it might require a restart or manually unloading modules/restarting X. If you don't know how to do the latter, just reboot (sudo reboot) after uninstalling the packages.01:02
tashjrib: I want to give them sudo rights01:02
Jordan_Ujrib: tash: Yes, but adding someone to the "admin" group is the recommended way to simply give someone sudo privileges in Ubuntu.01:02
Guest87142argh irc all these years and i still dont know how to use it. could someone answer probably a very simple question01:02
tashuser is already created01:02
jribtash: then add them to the admin group01:02
MarmelodovI thought it was that too but it was doing it even before I installed compiz01:03
tashso, usermod -G admin user ?01:03
jribtash: sudo adduser USERNAME admin, does not create user, it adds user to admin group01:03
stealth-Shirakawasuna: It wants to remove ubuntu-desktop as well.01:03

urlin2uIcehawk78, I'm not really solid in this area, but I would think if you get to a cli and remove the fglrx drivers you would be in, I don't thin it is a grub problem.01:21

TrcxAny one good with gnome themeing?  Everything looks right when I log in, but then (after ~ 10s) I loose all themeing and it looks like I'm using win 98.01:54
urlin2uwhyameye, conky is in the ubuntu repos it is the conky set up that will make something possible, I read that it will only show 2 cores though.  Google conky to get screen shots then get the scripts.01:55

welderUbuntu is a big mess now that Unity is default... it's all locked down where you can't customize anything! How do I change Empathy settings? How do I remove the top bar that wastes my screen space?!? Why is there a global 'Online Accounts' setting that doesn't work yet!???!02:09

dj_segfaultJust had a weird thing happening with my Ubuntu 10.04.  I have dual monitors running separate X, with the second being hooked up to my TV.  I was watching MythTV on it, and something happened and now I can't move my mouse from the first screen to the second, so I can't control MythTV.  Is there something I can try to fix that?02:11
sunrunner20So, I'm having an issue: performed a commandline install of 11.10 in vmware and it won't boot. removed quite splash from GRUB and boot appears stuck at or immediatly after "Starting apparmor profiles [OK]"02:12
YcareneI've got a notebook with a bum battery, this causes the system to contstantly throw "battery discharging" notification in the upper right corner and pop up "battery discharging" dialog boxes, how do I get it to stop this without affecting other notificiations?02:12
welderusr13: i've been using it long enough to have gotten used to it02:12
usr13welder: It is simplicity.02:12
welderusr13: you can't get used to not being able to customize stuff02:12
Jordan_U!notunity | welder02:13
ubottuwelder: 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 !classic02:13
usr13I think you're just used to the way things were before.  You are resisting change.02:13
|Slacker|welder, install ccsm and then you can customize unity a bit02:13
Ycarenesunrunner20 - can you boot it in recovery mode?02:13
welderusr13: simplicity is great... as long as you provide options for power users to customize for productivity02:13

Ycareneunity doesn't like my hardware I don't think.02:16
Jordan_Uex0: Every time Ubuntu is released, all versions (Desktop, server, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu...) are released simultaniously. There are no "Server only" or "Desktop only" releases.02:16
welderits not hard to provide options that are hidden from most users by a freaking ADVANCED tab or button!02:16
ex0i understand, thank you.02:16
sunrunner20Ycarene: i didn't install x02:16
dj_segfaultusr13: lack of options means lack of power.  It would have been very easy to have it default to a simple interface but still have the option of turning advanced features back on.  That's not what Gnome/Unity is now though.  They've reduced its capabilities02:16
Ycarenehmm, ok02:17
ghostnik11hi i am on ubuntu 11.10 and when i move to trash items on a sd card and then tell ubuntu to eject media, it doesn't delete the files before ejecting the sd card like it use to do in 11.0402:17
welderdj_segfault: exactly!02:17
ghostnik11how can i get ubuntu 11.10 to delete the files from an sd card when i tell it to eject the sd card02:17
Jordan_Uwelder: dj_segfault: This channel is for Ubuntu support, not for complaining about things you don't like. Try #ubuntu-offtopic.02:17
Ycarenesunrunner20 - I didn't know that it gave that option, something else starting then that's hanging the system, can you start apparmor from recovery mode?02:17
urlin2ughostnik11, you can bypass the trash to a straight delete if you want.02:17
dj_segfaultJordan_U: Fair enough.  My apologies.  I asked a question, then that topic came up.02:18
welderJordan_U: i need support... I need help reducing icons in chat windows of Empathy because they are so large I can't see chat history without scrolling up02:18

franco79I've apparently lost some headers in my update manager. The erros says: Encountered a section with no Package: header, E:Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/ar.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_oneiric-updates_main_binary-amd64_Packages02:19
ghostnik11urlin2u,  yeah but the thing is i have already told it to remove the items to trash and now when i load the sd card it loads up with the items not there but the sd card is still full when i check the properties it still shows the sd card being full even though i deleted some stuff off it02:19
franco79is there a way to do a workaround with this?02:19
welderJordan_U: I need help configuring Unity so the top bar hides or gets combined with the side bar because it wastes my screen realestate02:19
Jordan_Uwelder: For IRC I would personally recommend a dedicated IRC client like Xchat or irssi.02:19
sunrunner20Ycarene: how do i do that?02:19
urlin2ughostnik11, the sd card is a plugin right, it has its opwn trash hidden.02:20
welderJordan_U: I'm using irssi for IRC02:20

Jordan_Uwelder: Unity can't be configured to hide the top bar, though it is integrated with the menus of maximised windows to save space. If you're not happy with that you'll need to switch to something other than unity.02:21

Jordan_Uwelder: This is your last warning. This channel is for Ubuntu support, not discussion of things you don't like. I told you your options for the bar at the top of the screen (use something other than unity).02:24
ghostnik11urlin2u, b/4 u said i could bypass the way to delete the files without sending them to trash, how can i do that b/c when i select all it only gives me an option of move to trash no delete02:25
sunrunner20Ycarene: no idea how to check for that (googling to try to learn real quick though)02:25
ghostnik11urlin2u, or permanent delete02:25
Ycarenesunrunner20 - do an ls -l /etc/rcS.d02:25
urlin2ughostnik11, I set my preferences in nautilus to have a bypass of trash I never use it.02:25
Ycarenesunrunner20 - numbers go from lowest to highest02:26
urlin2ughostnik11, you still have a choice of trash or delete that way02:26
Gentoo64ghostnik11, i think hold shift then right click delete02:26
Gentoo64ghostnik11, do you ever use trash?02:27

ghostnik11Gentoo64, yeah but sometimes i go into trash and delete permanently02:27
Gentoo64ah ok02:27
sunrunner20Ycarene: ls -l /etc/rcS.d yeilds a link to apparmor and urandom02:28
ghostnik11Gentoo64, holding shift and right clicking doesn't allow me to delete them still only option of move to trash02:28
|Slacker|ghostnik11, select the files you wanna delete and then shift+delete02:28
Gentoo64ah thats the one02:29
Gentoo64i knew it was some key and delete02:29
ghostnik11<|Slacker|> that worked perfectly02:30
hspncghostnik11: you should use gconf-editor to change your preferences regarding deleting files with the right-click02:30
Gentoo64i think its thunar where you have to shift and right click02:30
|Slacker|ghostnik11, ;)02:30
ghostnik11hspnc, how can i do that, via terminal or is there a gui i can use02:30
hspnctype in gconf-edit02:30
urlin2uhspnc, there is a ay to do it in the nautilus edit.02:30

ghostnik11yeah i am thinking i have to do it the nautilus way b/c he said gconf isn't installed02:31
Gentoo64welder, oh yea...02:32
welderJordan_U: there must be a way to change more Unity settings without using the GUI right?02:32
Ycarenesunrunner20 - is there an option to do an interactive startup when you boot into recovery mode? (what are the menu options?)02:32
Gentoo64i thought you meant app icons02:32
welderGentoo64: see how that gets annoying when I have to scroll up to see history?02:32
Rothami used to run ubuntu 10.10.. just upgraded to 11.10, and archive manager cant open .xpi files anymore... is there a way I can get it to open xpi files? (fire fox addons), or is there another file roller that works?02:33

daleharveyhey, got a fresh install of ubuntu on a new laptop and the colours suck, I open the "Color" from preferences, and all it gives me is my screen with a default profile and no option to calibrate03:11
a_p3rsonor, can i recommend thunderbird?03:11
daleharveyI cant even seem to change the contrast03:11
a_p3rsonthunderbird *should* automatically setup server settings03:11
sparrWJordan_U: I'm not, nvidia-current came in as a dependency of something else03:11
ImTheDudeill try that03:11
a_p3rsonjust look up thunderbird in the software centre03:11

Jordan_UsparrW: If you're using the package manager then it should be all done automagically. What problem are you having?03:12
ImTheDudeim installing03:12
a_p3rsonwhen you start it, it will ask for your name and email and should set it up automatically03:12
a_p3rsondoes hotmail require you pay/turn on the pop3 server?03:12
Jordan_Urichard3: What happens when you try to access your ntfs partition?03:13
ImTheDudei hop this works. Now i can use the same email address cant i or do i have to configure another eamil account03:13

urlin2urichard3, not working in what way?03:13
a_p3rsondoes hotmail need to turn on pop3 access/want you to pay for it?03:13
sparrWJordan_U: I installed a random app, which depended on nvidia-current so that gor updated. Now many 3d apps say this when I launch them:03:13
richard3yesterday my NTFS partition was listed in /media under the volume name.  now it's just gone03:13
a_p3rsongmail needs you to enable imap access i know03:13
sparrWError: API mismatch: the NVIDIA kernel module has version 270.41.06, but this NVIDIA driver component has version 280.13.  Please make sure that the kernel module and all NVIDIA driver components have the same version.03:13

sparrWJordan_U: sorry, I misremembered. What I installed was nvidia-current-dev, to get GL/gl.h03:15
ImTheDudehave all three email accounts from one place i thought i could do that with evolution03:15
a_p3rsonthunderbird looks in a database of domains of emails (email@domainhere.net) and sets up the correct settings03:15
a_p3rsonthunderbird supports multiple emails, yes03:15
richard3I only want to know why it was working automatically, then stopped.  I don't think it's a hardware thing or anything else03:15
ImTheDudewhats imap stand for?03:15
a_p3rsonjust be careful when sending/replying, its very easy to not notice which email its sending it on03:15
richard3but thank you Jordan :)03:15
a_p3rsoninternet message access protocol03:16
a_p3rsonhotmail doesnt have imap access, only pop303:16
Jordan_Urichard3: And to help you discover why it stopped working I need to see the output from "sudo blkid".03:16
a_p3rsonimap is a little better though, it reads the message from the server rather than where pop3 downloads all of them and then opens them locally03:17
a_p3rsonthat help?03:17

=== basepi_ is now known as basepi
Jordan_UTunix: Are you using Ubuntu? If apt is not installed then you or someone else has done something very wrong.03:19
|Anthony|is the version of grub installed in ubuntu not what's managing the boot?03:19
TunixJordan_U: I dont think its ubuntu im trying to find the command that shows me the distro now03:20
richard3Jordan_U: you just mounted it on /mnt03:20
Jordan_UTunix: This is #ubuntu, we only support Ubuntu here. You can try ##linux or your actual distribution's support channel.03:20
Jordan_Urichard3: Did it mount without error?03:20
TunixAh thank you03:20
Jordan_Urichard3: OK. Try "sudo umount /mnt/" and tell me if the partition is listed in nautilus (the file browser). Nautilus mounts partitions when you try to access them, not at boot / login.03:21

ZutaraAnyone know how I would bridge my eth0/1 with my ra0 on 10.04? Everytime I bring the bridge up it knocks my Wireless out.03:23
Jordan_U|Anthony|: Do you just want to change the grub background or do you want an entire theme?03:23
|Anthony|an entire theme... eventually03:24
|Anthony|but for now an image would be a start03:24
|Anthony|thought of using this theme:03:24
richard3Jordan_U http://pastebin.com/hfG3sUqA03:24
Jordan_U|Anthony|: To change the background add "GRUB_BACKGROUND=/path/to/new/background.png" to /etc/default/grub then run "sudo update-grub".03:25
=== max is now known as Guest59041
|Anthony|yeah, i read that on the grub theming page03:25
Jordan_Urichard3: What command did you run / what did you do to get that error message?03:26
|Anthony|i really like that theme i just linked, but i'm concerned cause there's no uninstall script03:26
richard3my NTFS volume was in the PCMANFM tree, just clicked on it there03:26
arooni-mobileonce i set up a /etc/init.d script; how do i give it "life" i.e.. make it so it gets run on every startUP?03:26
Jordan_Urichard3: I'm not sure if pacman is setup properly for this or not. Have you always used pacman or did you ever use nautilus?03:27
richard3just installed lubuntu yesterday.  Anyhow do you think this is a bigger problem, or just fix it manually like the ubuntu website says.  and Thanks!03:28
Jordan_U|Anthony|: An install script should not be needed. I'm looking now to see what the script does.03:28
|Anthony|it writes to grub.cfg and what not03:29
richard3lubuntu= pcmanfm03:29
|Anthony|not a bad script though03:29
Jordan_U|Anthony|: It does not write to the grub.cfg.03:31
kookykookieCan i change my resolution remotely?03:31
spikebikeany suggestions for outputting audio to two USB headsets simultaneously?03:32
kookykookiei changed the default resolution, not the gui is too big for the monitor03:32
kookykookieits also frozen =\03:32
Jordan_U|Anthony|: All the script does is copy the theme files to /boot/grub/themes/Oxygen/, change the GRUB_GFXMODE= option in /etc/default/grub, and add the GRUB_THEME= option in /etc/default/grub.03:32
Jordan_U|Anthony|: You can do that yourself and document it for future reference so you know how to undo it. Though I agree that almost anything which comes with an install script should have an unstall script as well.03:34

xxiaoi waited waited...until i had to kill aptitude, i waited for about 20 minutes03:41
xxiaoeven paused my build job, did not help03:41
Jordan_Uxxiao: Triple check all of them for something which might be dpkg. Killing aptitude or dpkg should always be very last resorts (after asking for help from places like this if possible).03:41
xxiaoJordan_U: checked all terminals, none is running apt-* or dpkg03:42
xxiaoactually one is running this irc another is a vim03:42

ehsansnso how would it be with cd?03:51
Jordan_Uehsansn: How are you running the script. Normally what you care about is what directory the user was in (Current Working Directory) when they ran the script, not the location of the script itself.03:51

ehsansnI need to have sth instead of the first cd line03:55
Jordan_Uehsansn: Why do you need to use cd at all? The default current working directory is the current working directory from the parent process.03:55

Johannes1I am trying to set up a my own web server using a VPS I purchased. I think everything is set up correctly however how do I set up my DNS so my domains point to my IP? I literally have no idea how to do this.03:56

gloomernp eHAPPY03:56
gloomernp ehsansn03:56
Jordan_Uehsansn: Can you post the entire (fixed) script to http://pastebin.ubuntu.com ?03:56

MrDudleis there a way to give a specific file a custom icon?03:57
gloomerso whoever you bought the domain from03:57
MrDudlelike i want my icons on the desktop03:57
MrDudleto have a different appearance03:57
MrDudlefrom the file type appearance03:57
Johannes1gloomer: No I got  that part. But I need it to point to a nameserver ... but I haven't set up a nameserver. How do I do that on my end, I mean.03:57
MrDudleyou don't need a domain server03:57
MrDudleuse something like afraid.org03:58
MrDudlethen you can point your domain all sorts of places03:58
ehsansnwhere is the mistake mr Jordan_U03:58
Jordan_Uehsansn: If you remove line 2 your script will be functionally the same. Line two will do nothing but print the current working directory.03:58
Jordan_Uehsansn: The '$relpath;' part will literally do nothing. Performs no function, produces no output.03:59
ehsansnIl try it again now04:00
gloomeryup just prints path04:00
gloomerif you want to use path you need to store it in a variable04:00
gloomerbut you dont need it for that script04:00
ehsansnoh lol yes you guys are right04:02
ehsansnif I just double click on it and choose run in terminal it will do what I want04:02
ehsansnwhat I did before is I ran it from within terminal and it converted files in the home directory04:03

Is just upgrading the packages manually and then doing a dist-upgrade going to work? I seem to remember doing something similar when 11.04 broke itself and I had to install from a tty....04:13

elacheche_anisIs the mail server of the MLs down???04:26
theoremharsh343: you don't ... you'll need to remake the config files from a fresh installation --- modify them accordingly from there04:26
oldschoolthe desktop cube04:27
harsh343theorem, means again i have to need an fresh installation04:27
harsh343is it possible through cd04:27
urlin2uoldschool, how are you trying to set up the desktop in compiz?04:27
theoremharsh343: no, you can do it without a fresh install, you just need to take copies of the files from something similar -- like a fresh install and modify them to fit your system04:27
zykotick9_Zutara, just FYI (if it applies) but as noted on this page, most wireless don't support bridging - good luck.  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KVM/Networking04:27
ImTheDudedo u understand what im trying do?04:27
ImTheDudedo you understand what im doing04:28
urlin2uoldschool, the cube is not difficult you using any links or just winging it?04:28
brjanncharsh343: I'm assuming you were logged in as root if you were allowed to delete /etc, so look to see if /root/.local/share/Trash/etc exists. (Also, this is why you shouldn't login as root. :) )04:28
lorddeltaImTheDude: Mostly...you mentioned two accounts, worked, which ones worked, and what protocols were they using?04:29
oldschoolurlin2u all i do is check the desktop cube on compiz and i lose all my icons04:29
harsh343brjannc, as i say i m not able to start the os now so how can possible them so see all possibility04:30
oldschoolmy just left with the wallpaper04:30

ImTheDudewell lorddelta the ones that worked are my live hotmail account and my gmail account but the yahoo password wont verify and it wont work. the other two that do work use pop3 and imap.04:31
theoremharsh343: you might be able to boot from the instllation media and copy the /etc directory from ther eonto the disk -- you'll be dealing with quite a bit of cifferences though -- it's worth a shot04:31

ImTheDudewhat is that loarddelta?04:32
lorddeltaImTheDude: seems like Yahoo uses a modified version of IMAP, so you can't use a normal IMAP client....04:32
oldschoolurlin2u ok thanks for the link04:34
lorddeltaImTheDude: I'd recommend you find someone/learn how to compile this stuff yourself, it doesn't look like there's an easy fix for Yahoo IMAP. Don't give up though, I don't know everything. :)04:34
mister2hey, does anyone know if you can do some shenanigans to flip the microphone/headphone jack's purposes? i have a dead headphone jack and don't care for the microphone.04:35
theoremmister2: the hardware usually doesn't let you do something like that -- the closest thing is probably the line-out jack04:35
mister2theorem mk, i think i'm just going to get a usb headphone set or usb soundcard04:36
Natecati just installed ubuntu using the windows installer and i found grub wasn't installed04:36
RockMeAmadeusI went back to gnome instead of kde04:36
ImTheDudenot a big deal just thought it would be more simple to have three accounts, if there is a way im going to find out but if not im just going to forget it thanks though lorddelta .04:36
RockMeAmadeusDropbox looked like a pain to set up in kde04:36
brjanncmister2: If the jacks are simply connected to the motherboard with wire headers, you could potentially connect the mic jack to the headphone connector. But that's a bit beyond ubuntu support :)04:36
theoremmister2: sounds like extra work -- how did the port die ?04:36
mister2theorem unknown, it came to me dead04:37
lorddeltaImTheDude: the only "easy" thing I can think of is to setup your gmail so that it uses the yahoo account04:37
mister2it's a dell ini 1004:37
floydspritetheorem u get my results04:37
lorddeltaImTheDude: You mentioned your gmail already works. So if you setup the account via accounts in gmail, and ask Yahoo to forward everything to gmail, you should be good.04:37
ImTheDudehow would i do that lorddelta04:37
theoremfloydsprite: ?04:38
Natecatdoes anybody know how to install grub on a pre-existing installation that doesnt have grub04:38
brjanncmister2: Oh, it's a netbook. Nevermind, hardware monkeying isn't really an option then04:38
mister2brjannc i just finished putting it back together ;)04:38
Natecatand since it doesnt have grub i have no access to ubuntu04:38
mister2but i think the simplest solution is just a usb sound card04:39
ImTheDudeso i go to yahoo setting and ask it to forward the mail to my gmail?04:39
zykotick9_Natecat, use a LiveCD, then chroot into the HD install - see "/msg ubottu grub2" for the link to the grub2 help page04:39
lorddeltaImTheDude: In gmail: Little gear in the top right corner -> Accounts tab, "Add another e-mail address you own"04:40
lorddeltaImTheDude: In Yahoo: wherever their forward to address button is.04:40
waterDrophello avery one04:40
waterDropwhat ae we talk about now?04:40
Natecatzykotick9:i dont have any blank disks. i got ubuntu using windows installer is there anyway to do it without the disk?04:41
zykotick9_Natecat, if you used WUBI then disregard what i suggested.  Good luck.04:41
Natecatshould i reinstall and hope the installer works properly this time?04:42
zobugtelcomo ago para ir al chat de ubuntu en español04:42
waterDropNatecat: try Virtual Machine...04:42
urlin2uNatecat, are you letting th app work as presented and not building a partion?04:43
Natecati have a partition of 200 GB for ubuntu04:43
Natecatwhen i try to boot into ubuntu it goes to command line04:43
ubottuzobugtel: En la mayoría de canales de Ubuntu se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español o charlar entra en el canal #ubuntu-es. Escribe "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y dale a enter.04:43
urlin2uNatecat, and your using a wubi install?04:43
Natecatit didnt install grub for some reason04:43
urlin2uNatecat, that is your problem it does not work that way.04:44
lorddeltaImTheDude: Yeah it looks like yahoo doesn't wanna let you forward for free. So you'd have to use the other, more technically involved option I gave you.04:44
Natecaturlin2u: what do u mean?04:44
urlin2uNatecat, boot a ubuntu cd and install it to that partition it has to be a ext type not a NTFS04:44
Natecatoh so i have to reformat?04:45
* skgolden is away: i'm not here at the moment.04:45
urlin2uNatecat, wubu is not a partition install it is a file in windows as is limited to 30 gigs.04:45
Natecatnot according to the guide on ubuntu's website04:46
urlin2uNatecat, link me to that guide.04:46
Natecatnvm can i just move files to main partition or do i have to reinstall04:47

urlin2uNatecat, not knowing what you have done I can't answer, and you seem to have some wires crossed in your understanding not sure where, but as I have exsplained is how it is.04:48
xanguaImTheDude: just set yahoo pop304:48
ImTheDudei gve uyahoo is to stubborn04:49

Natecatok im going to do a reinstall04:49
ImTheDudeot yielding to reason or persuasion04:49
ImTheDudenot yielding to reason or persuasion04:49
Natecatoh the installation size is how much data is on the VM04:51

urlin2uNatecat, okay, good luck just give this page a read as well. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide04:52
brjanncharsh343: No worries, booting from usb and selecting "try ubuntu" won't change anything on the disk, and we won't need to do anything that will mess with your windows install04:52

Natecatis there anyway to soft reboot ubuntu while it is frozen04:55
harsh343two icons on my dekstop install ubuntu 11.10 and Examples04:56

ImTheDudethat was a joke yall ant laughing though05:13

crassusI'd like to tile apps in the tty, you see05:19
qincrassus: All x dm will use vt, but you can xinit -- :1 vt1 (so xterm will land on tty1)05:19
crassusqin: not sure I understand you fully05:20
qincrassus: maybe: fbterm, tmux, screen05:20
brjanncharsh343: This will take a while to run, because it's going to search everywhere. But it's basically looking for a file that should only exist in the /etc directory05:20
crassusoh, so tmux will work with the ttys q?05:20
crassusqin: ^^ ?05:20
qincrassus: Yes, it will05:21

ImTheDudei tried to uninstall evolution but i still see the tab listed in application . how do i remove the evolution tab from application?05:44
sioncrassus, are you sure your shell behaviour isn't set to vi instead of emacs? (which I prefer anyway, but could, though unlikely, be the cause of some of your trouble)05:45

harsh343brjannc, I am able to start my previous ubuntu 11.10 but not display all the options05:46
crassussion: i'm not sure, but I'd prefer vi05:47
brjanncharsh343: What do you mean by display all the options?05:47
JPetersonxangua: searched the whole ./, there's no compiz05:47
crassusor whatever keeps the normal word jumping stuff05:47
harsh343only shows file, edit, view, Go, bookmarks and help in the top line not displaying all the features of ubuntu 11.1005:47
JPetersonhow do i change back to ubuntu classic from the command line?05:47
xanguaJPeterson: are you using unity2d¿05:47
crassuslike in irssi now05:47
crassusI can't jump word by word05:47
crassusbut I can erase fine05:47
JPetersonxangua: couldnt' tell you05:47
JPetersonhow do i tell?05:48
ok_waitbrjannc, would you know how i would execute 'xset dpms force off' for example on the remote machine?05:48
xanguaJPeterson: if you didn't had 3d efects from the beggining, you are05:48
JPetersonxangua: was using ubuntu classic in 11.04 and upgraded to 11.1005:48
ok_waitand it actually turn off the remote machine's monitor05:48
brjanncharsh343: Did you perhaps delete any other potentially important directories besides /etc? :)05:49
sionwell crassus depending on the program you can set it, for example in your .bashrc you can have "set -o vi" for bash or "bindkey -v" in .zhsrc for zsh...?05:49
harsh343not seeing like this http://arstechnica.com/open-source/news/2010/10/shuttleworth-unity-shell-will-be-default-desktop-in-ubuntu-1104.ars05:49
sioncrassus, then you could jump words, by switching to command mode and pressing w, same as in vi/vim05:50
brjanncok_wait: You could try      ssh -X user@host "DISPLAY=:0 xset dpms force off"05:50
eltigrehey, I would like to have gcc-4.3 in a current version of Ubuntu....05:50
wafflzhello ppl. so im trying to install 10.04 on an old computer but i need to unshadow the bios first.. how can i do this?05:50
eltigredo you know any way to do that?05:51
harsh343brjannc, no i do not delete any other things, but may be if its my fault again05:51
zykotick9!notunity | JPeterson05:51
ubottuJPeterson: 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 !classic05:51
=== jesus is now known as Guest14340
brjanncharsh343: Hmm, I'm not sure, then. We restored the /etc directory to what it was before it was deleted, so I don't there there should be any issues there... Are you logged in as a different user or anything like that?05:52
JPetersonzykotick9: thx but apt-get install crashes http://iu500.imgur.com/all/05:52
JPeterson* http://i.imgur.com/SjRlR.png05:52
harsh343brjannc, now i am logged with the same user05:52
sioneltigre, 2 ways, either do Packge > Force Version in synaptic package manager (may be possible from apt-get also) or download 4.3 source and install (that way you can install elsewhere, e.g. your home dir, so that it does not conflict with your normal gcc installation)05:52
Guest14340hi i just get compiz cube working for me but now i can move my windows around anyone know how to fix this05:52
brjanncharsh343: And it's still not the way it was before?05:53
eltigresion, hm ok... I had hoped for a simpler way, but thanks05:53
Guest14340compiz desktop cube05:53
zykotick9JPeterson, umm, ya I saw your pasted image before.  That looks like a very broken system, good luck.05:53
ok_waitbrjannc, that's perfect thank you very much05:53
sioneltigre, the first way is not really complicated, if you need help just ask05:53
=== barna is now known as bipul
brjanncharsh343: I'm not sure what could be wrong, then. The only thing I can think of to try is to create a brand new user, and see if it looks right then05:54
harsh343brjannc, now also there is not option of shut down and restart and all those things05:54
brjanncok_wait: Sure thing :)05:54
eltigresion, yes, but wouldn't that break other software?05:54
JPetersonzykotick9: well there was nothing wrong with it before the 11.10 upgrade05:54
crassussion: in emacs mode, do I jump words by ctrl+leftArrow/rightArrow?05:54
sioneltigre, possibly, probably only if the software needs to be compiled with a certain version (in which case take option 2, installing from source to another place). it might also be possible using software centre but I don't know because I don't use it05:55
JPetersonhow do I reset apt-get? so that apt-get install doesn't crash?05:55
harsh343brjannc, it looks like little ubuntu 10.0405:55
brjanncharsh343: It sounds like your user profile may be corrupted or something; I would try to create a new user and see if that works, and if so, maybe come back and ask how to fix a corrupted user profile in 11.10? (I'm not using 11.10, so I really don't know)05:55
xanguaJPeterson: i see no apt crash there, just a broken window05:55

eltigresion, in synaptic I can see that I have 4.4 and 4.5 installed, how can I downgrade one?05:56
brjanncharsh343: But it *is* the installation you had before, right? All your files from yesterday or whenever are there and everything?05:56
JPetersonxangua: how do i get the fullscreen console?05:56

sioneltigre, as far as I know you would have to uninstall and reinstall with forced version05:58
JPetersonxangua: notice how it crahes to the terminal after the 50% message05:58
harsh343one small question at the same time i am not able to copy the data in the pendrive how can i ?05:58
brjanncharsh343: Okay, good. Then my only guess is that your user profile is corrupted somehow05:59
ImTheDudejordanu how and where?05:59

sioneltigre, also if you are using apt-get from commandline you can downgrade by specifying the package version like apt-get install gcc=4:4.6.1-2ubuntu5 (replacing the last part with the desired version number)06:01
harsh343brjannc, three options occurs in the login screen myusername, Guest user and other is it possible to enter the login from 2 other options06:01

sioncrassus, if you're still here backward and forward by word with EMACS bindings is in fact M-b and M-f respectively (just tested it) but it can have annoying conflicts, e.g. my Meta key is bound to Alt, and Alt-F on my terminal opens up the File menu, this wouldn't be a problem with vi bindings06:09
Jordan_UImTheDude: I told you to use pastebin multiple times. Please read more carefully and try to follow directions exactly. If there is something about my directions you don't understand then ask.06:09
sionbut then you would need to know the vi bindings...06:09
JPetersonit wasn't that hard folks, a rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock rm /var/cache/apt/archives/lock dpkg --configure -a apt-get install -f should have been suggested to my question!06:09

sionbrjannc, are you sure it's admin group though? in other distros it's the group: wheel06:24
zykotick9sion, it's "admin" for ubuntu06:25

sionharsh343, your problem is that the user you're using does not have root access06:25

icerootJPeterson: have a look with ~/.gnome TAB TAB06:25
lotuspsychjeany solution yet for corrupt mouse cursor bug at boot?06:25
brjanncharsh343: Yes, you'll have to     su harsh    first, since that user can use sudo06:25
JPetersoniceroot: i've just noticed before that the ubuntu version upgrade sometimes asks if i want to reset a changed config06:25
icerootlotuspsychje: is there a bug opened?06:25
JPetersonso i thought that function might be exposed from the command line06:25

sionharsh343, do you know the password to your previous username?06:26
harsh343brjannc, after using su harsh i am able to do anything then why need any other command06:26
JPetersoniceroot: ok so?06:26
icerootJPeterson: if you choose no, dpkg will create a config called foobar.conf.dpkg for that package06:26
harsh343sion, yes i am only the user of my lapt06:26
icerootJPeterson: just try the rename of the global gnome config06:26
brjanncharsh343: Because you may as well add your new user to the admin group, so you don't have to constantly su to harsh before you can use sudo06:27
brjanncharsh343: It's not necessary, just might be less hassle for you06:27
harsh343brjannc, then what i can do now06:27
JPetersoniceroot: can you be more specific, for example which file06:27
sionharsh343, I obviously don't understand your problem, what are you trying to achieve?06:28
brjanncharsh343: su harsh    then      sudo usermod -aG admin hary06:28
icerootJPeterson: ~/.gnome3 ~/.gnome or something like that should be the file06:28
lorddeltasion: he deleted his /etc folder, and now he's trying to fix the system.06:28
icerootJPeterson: but because i am not using gnome i dont have that folder to check06:28
brjanncharsh343: Then you will be able to sudo as hary.06:28

JPetersoniceroot: ~/.gnome2 is the only gnome in ~06:28

icerootlotuspsychje: you tried Option        "sw_cursor"?06:30
harsh343brjannc, befor using this also i am able to go in sudo nautilus with su harsh06:30
lorddeltasion: sounds like it. I'm just hanging (waiting to see if I can upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10 here), though so, I'm not sure how far he's gotten.06:30
lorddeltasion: If I knew dbus well enough to to a grep search on the logs in pidgin I could provide with a summary on pastebin...06:31
harsh343and also after using your command su harsh    then      sudo usermod -aG admin hary, when i again open a new terminal i am not able to open sudo nautilus again i neede su harsh again06:31
JPetersoniceroot: what about dpkg-reconfigure --all? what does that do?06:31
brjanncharsh343: I understand that -- what I'm saying is that you would be able to sudo *without* needing to su harsh first. But if you're happy doing that, it's fine06:31
icerootJPeterson: to much06:31
brjanncharsh343: You'll need to log out and log back in for the change to take effect for the hary user.06:31
harsh343brjannc, ok06:32
sionlorddelta; hah, well thanks!06:32
brjanncharsh343: (Also, *please* don't sudo nautilus! That's how you ended up deleting your /etc directory by mistake!)06:32
harsh343brjannc, hmmmmmmmmmm06:32
JPetersoniceroot: ok06:32
icerootJPeterson: ls -all ~/.06:32
sionharsh343, why do you want to 'sudo nautilus'? what will you do once you get nautilus?06:32
brjanncharsh343: sudo should be used *very* infrequently, only when you need it.06:32
icerootJPeterson: can you paste that output? (check first if there are filenames you dont want to post)06:33
lorddeltasion: actually I've sudo nautilus'ed a couple of times to change a config file or something. Its not always obvious how to do that to a newbie.06:33
booh-partimage tell me that it can't work with mounted partition but... I continue and it seems to do the job anyway ;-)06:34
icerootlorddelta: sudo gedit /path/to/configfile06:34
zykotick9lorddelta, i at least hope you used gksu or gksudo06:34
harsh343brjannc, yes now after restart i am able to see the window again06:34
ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)06:34
JPetersoniceroot: ok here http://pastebin.com/zNktULP706:34
icerootlorddelta: of course gksudo gedit /path/to/configfile06:34
lorddeltaiceroot: yeah, I know that.06:34
harsh343and use sudo directly with username hary06:34
sionlorddelta, well I was just thinking, if he wants to fix things maybe we can help him do it without nautilus instead of going on a mission to get a GUI?06:34
brjanncharsh343: Great!06:34
harsh343brjannc, but i am not able to see all my drives06:35
lorddeltaiceroot: actually usually these days its sudo gedit or sudo bash -c 'echo "changetobemade" >> fileinquestion'06:35
harsh343yes not i am able06:35
icerootlorddelta: its always gksudo06:35
harsh343when i again open sudo nautilus06:35
harsh343brjannc, thanks very very much dear06:35
harsh343you are very clever man06:35
icerootlorddelta: and of course the real solution is "sudo vim /foo/bar"06:35
brjanncharsh343: You may need to add a few more groups to your new user. You can see what groups harsh was in with    groups harsh    and then add hary to those groups with     sudo usermod -aG <group> hary06:36
lorddeltazykotick9: and I think I eventually did that. I mainly did that back in 10.10...before I learned about gksudo06:36
icerootJPeterson: mv ~/.gconf ~/.gconf.orig && mv ~/.config ~/.config.orig06:36
brjanncharsh343: Heh, you're welcome. Good luck!06:36
lorddeltaiceroot: Yes I know, but I'm not proficient yet with vim. I'm an emacs guy anyways.06:36
icerootJPeterson: after that, logout and login again06:37
harsh343brjannc, one last question i am not able to copy anything in my pendrive what i can do now ?06:37
JPetersoniceroot: i made a new user, looks the same, so these settings wont matter06:37
icerootJPeterson: hm06:37
ImTheDudeapt-catch poilcy evolution is that it?06:37
sionharsh343, check which user owns the pendrive with: ls -l /media/pendrive (replacing /media/pendrive with path to your pendrive)06:38
ImTheDudei forgot06:38
lorddeltaImTheDude: apt-cache policy evolution06:38
ImTheDudeim still trying to figure out pastbin06:38
icerootJPeterson: then i guess --reconfigure on dpkg is the only way06:38
icerootJPeterson: thought its just a user-based config issue06:38
sionharsh343, if the owner of the file is not the current user then you will probably not be able to write to it without either a) changing permissions b) changing ownership c) changing users d) remounting drive06:39
icerootImTheDude: post your text on pastebin, click "submit" and post the url so we can see your pasted text06:39
ImTheDudeim try to it keeps sending me to launchpad06:39
icerootImTheDude: or use this "sudo apt-get install pastebinit" and then you can use "command-you-want-to-paste | pastebinit"06:40
ImTheDudehttp://paste.ubuntu.com/738003/plain/ there is that it06:41
sionImTheDude, try http://pastebin.com/ instead, you should be able to paste anonymously, just paste your code in the box and copy the URI from the address bar06:41
sionImTheDude, nevermind, looks like you got it! :-)06:41
ImTheDudeya but does it work06:42
icerootImTheDude: what is your issue with evolution?06:42
JPetersoniceroot: what --reconfigure?06:43
ImTheDudei cant get the tabe evolution out of application06:43
JPetersonyou mean dpkg-reconfigure?06:43
iamfennechi anyone up ?06:43
icerootImTheDude: so you mean "evolution is still in my menu but its not installed"06:43
ImTheDudeeven though i uninstalled it06:44
JPetersonhow do i dpkg-reconfigure -a silent? i don't want a million dialogs06:44
icerootImTheDude: should be removed after you logout and login again06:44
iamfennecwhats a program that can tell me what the internal stuff is doing on my lappy ?06:44

sionharsh343, unfortunately my proxy is blocking your pastebin at the moment :(06:47
lorddeltaGuest68269: After you install the extras (usually apt-get install compiz-extras), you need to lookup what the config key is.06:47

harsh343brjannc, ok06:47
sionGuest68269, do you have Compiz Config Settings Manager installed? It will be under the extra animations.06:47
ph4nt0m_xit keeps telling me i have an error when i goto youtube06:48
iceroot!details | ph4nt0m_x06:48
ubottuph4nt0m_x: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."06:48
Jordan_UJPeterson: You almost never want to use "force" type options. Try --pcritical. That tells dpkg to only show questions with a priority ('p') of 'critical'.06:48
ImTheDudewait is there a command to put a link in irc?06:48
brjanncsion: the mountpoint he's talking about has perms 775 and is owned by user 99, group 9906:48
JPetersonJordan_U: ok06:48
lorddeltaImTheDude: What irc client?06:48
sionGuest68269, if not, the package you want is compizconfig-settings-manager06:48
lorddelta^v for me.06:48
icerootImTheDude: http://foo.bar   just write it06:48
Jordan_UJPeterson: Make that '-pcritical' rather than '--pcritical'.06:49
icerootImTheDude: or copy it06:49

sionImTheDude, what are you trying to do with the links?06:49
Jordan_UJPeterson: What are you hoping to accomplish with that?06:50
ImTheDudedumb question sorry06:50
lorddeltaNow...whether there is an api for spamming irc with links is a better question (not in the spirit of spamming, in the spirit of piping pastebinit urls to irc)06:50
deku-treeGuest68269: you might have to install the extra's via synaptic package manager (or varient).  just look up "compiz extra" or whatever06:50
icerootph4nt0m_x: as i said before, we need usefull infos. what ubuntu version, what browser, what error-message, output of "dpkg -l \*flashplugin\"*06:51

mihuHi. When my notebook starts up with 11.10, lp, parport and irda modules are loaded automatically. It seems that the chipset supports these, but they are not available on my hardware. Out of curiosity, I wanted to prevent these modules from being loaded. I blacklisted them in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and disabled cups' auto loading of lp module in /etc/default/cups.08:48
mihuUnfortunately, this did not work, something is still loading these modules. Any idea how I can find out who is loading these modules and prevent them from being loaded? (I know I can simply delete the module binary, but that would be too easy...)08:48

proxxbodhi_ oke, well one can have only a few partitions on an logical partion (4 if iam not mistaking)...  uhm so i suggest you make an extended partition for linux.. on top of that make the  root and the swap etc10:59
luca_biDo you know MIME?11:00
bodhi_so how do i go about doing that? heres the options i am given, logical or primary, location for new partition beginning or end, use as ext4, swap, etc, mount point, / etc11:00
bodhi_i have about 60 gb of space11:00
luca_biIt is a fundamental component of phpmyadmin since 200311:01
xjkxso it is weird, I got the 11.10 and my audio doesnt work on youtube, i downloaded a ogg file I also cant play in banshee, but, if I go in gnome-control-center and do a speaker test, it says "test left" and "test right", how about that ?11:02
edakiriAre there tablet computers with Ubuntu preinstalled yet?11:02

proxxbodhi_ just a sec, iam thinking :P11:03
SirDeiubodhi_: If you already have win7 installed and want to install Ubuntu after, the Ubuntu installer will present a choice of : Install Ubuntu alongside Windows ...11:04
bodhi_proxx, i want grub to let me choose from win7 or linux, as i said i have 60 gb of free space11:04
deej1976bodhi_: Two partitions minimum, / and swap ( Best is 3 /,/home,swap )11:04
CrazyThinkerWhy do we need /bin, /usr/local/bin and /usr/bin? Three different places to store a binaries that can be executed by non-root users?11:04
edakirixjkx, youtube is flash.  there is a special package for Flash audio. check you have it installed.  I don't have a tip for banshee.  In worst case you can bail to Rhythmbox or Amarok or 1 of the new Amarok forks.11:04
llutzCrazyThinker: historcal reasons, to be changed in future i guess11:04
SirDeiubodhi_: otherwise you already have 2 primary partitions, and can add two more only (one should be /boot and another one extended with 2 logical ones for / and swap)11:05
rumpe1CrazyThinker, try "man hier" in terminal11:05
bodhi_deej1976, so, that-s two logical or primary? one swap that mounts where, one ext4 that mounts where?11:05
CrazyThinkerrumpe1, Thank you11:05
edakirixjkx, you can also ditch pulse-audio.  Is there any reason to have it now that ALSA DMix is enabled by default?11:05

Ycarenepulse-audio is pretty hard to remove without breaking other stuff.11:06
deej1976bodhi_| One primary for / (root) and swap partition#11:07
proxxbodhi_ oke but you can make an ext and a swap ? the swap should be mount point SWAP and the EXT4 should be as     "      /        "11:07
bodhi_let me see if i am communicating well here, I am facing a box, that has a ticker, where i can select from logical or primary, location at either beginning or end, ext4, ext3, ext2 etc, and then mount point, / /home etc11:07
edakirixjkx, pulse goes through alsa. pulse-audio uses much RAM (which I have little of at the moment)  Intel HD Audio is usualy Internal. Ycarene I removed it without suffering, but am running Debian sid/unstable.11:07
deej1976bodhi_: primary, ext4, mount point /11:09
bodhi_what should i choose for what, if i choose to make a swap should i choose it primary or logical, considering i have win7 already installed, considering i have 60 gb of free space and 500 mb ram what size should i make swap and where should it mount11:09
esbenunity and gnome3 is asking me for root password instead of sudo password. I accidentaly screwed up my groups but am now a member of admin again and can sudo, but gnome and unity doesnt know.11:09

deej1976bodhi_: swap, desired amount (end)11:09
xjkxbe right back11:10
bodhi_deej1976, the ext4 should be located at the beginnning or at the end?11:10
proxxbodhi_ it is appended this way, else you will leave gaps, its just stack :)11:11
bodhi_ok now, the swap, i have 1,5 gb free space left, 500mb ram, should the swap be primary or logical, located at beginning or end, and where should it mount11:12

edakiribodhi_, Too much swap can effectively crash your system if it gets used. If you don't use TmpFS, I recommend <= 1GB swap. ext4 is well supported and stable.  you don't need other filesystem for files.  Reiser4 is good for /tmp or /var/cache11:18

stwangejasonmchristos, the server ISO doesn't have a live boot. Are you sure you're not just telling me how to boot ubuntu into rescue mode (similar to sticking a 1 or single after the kernel line)? I'm trying to *install* the base system, so only the basic packages even exist on the hard drive11:31

deej1976luca_bi: But the clue is in the name: phpmyADMNIN, I don't believe you can make useable applications in it12:51
jasefdeej1976, correct me if I'm wrong... but wasn't the question about tables, not 'usable applications'12:51
Per-Arne_jasef: so basicly it works just like, say for example Your freedom?12:52
deej1976luca_bi: This is no long a ubuntu support question, and is more about php/mysql12:52

ReliantMy Wireless stopped working after a recent Ubuntu update. The troubleshooting docs on the official site are no help. Does anyone know some useful ones or if this is a known issue with a known fix?12:52
tomodachiReliant: does running the command iwconfig in the terminal, list the device?12:53
luca_bideej1976: What is the best channel i can ask this question? I think you can create usable applications without writing in php12:53

jasefluca_bi, phpMyAdmin is not usable to create applications, it only creates the backend structure to store information for other applications, such as blogging software, forums, etc.12:54
luca_bideej1976: I prefer using phpmyadmin because it's the application which my host company gives to me12:54
deej1976luca_bi: Please see jasef comment12:55
luca_bijasef: Really?12:55
Reliantthere we go. Deleted the connection and re-entered the key, and now it works12:55
jasefluca_bi, Yes. I'm very sure about this.12:55
luca_bijasef: So with LAMP structure you cannot create applications?12:56
KrisDouglasluca_bi, PHPMyAdmin is designed like an excel spreadsheet editor. It doesn't make the user interface for you.12:56
KrisDouglasluca_bi, you run "apps" on a LAMP structure, using PHP & MySQL12:56
jasefluca_bi, for web applications, you can use LAMP, but you WRITE the applications in PHP. The PHP application uses MySQL as a backend to store data.12:56
ReliantI just got a spam tell from sedena asking me to go to a website12:56
KrisDouglasReliant, me too12:57
luca_bijasef: But I know that you can import .sql file in phpmyadmin12:57
KrisDouglasyes, .sql is exported data12:57
jasefluca_bi, a .sql file is only a database. It is NOT an application12:57
luca_bijasef: you can also export these kind of file12:57

jasefluca_bi, short answer is no. I wouldn't recommend anyone who's not familiar with database structure principles to even try to edit anything with phpmyadmin. Any website that you could possibly edit with phpmyadmin would have a much easier interface for editing it.13:00

rolandcompdoc: there are contradicting opinions everywhere15:37
proxxmagooster; youll learn over time, trust me , i was noob once 2, just take the ride :)15:37

aking1012lolz @proxx statement15:38
magoosterok thanks everyone, have a great day :)15:38
proxxu2 sir15:38
compdocroland, but gparted starts the partition at the correct location for alingment15:38
rolandcompdoc: then why all the forums say to create the partition as aligned?15:39
rolandcompdoc: I talking about SSD's15:39

zaxonspoxproxx negative, did tried that15:49
proxxzaxonspox, oke  and can you connect to other APs ?15:49
zaxonspoxproxx yes, here to others AP, or in my home, to my AP15:50

proxxzaxonspox; iam by no means an expert, just to state that, what chipset do you have?15:51
zaxonspoxproxx can it be some AP conf issue? The security mode is WPA2 Pers., WPA alg. is AES15:52
rolandcompdoc: so when creating the partition I should select "align to MiB" ?15:53
proxxzaxonspox; thats indeed possible, than again, if you can connect to other AP's with the same encryption, than its funny15:53

=== JimmyJ_ is now known as JimmyJ
sipiorct529: well, as permanent as any other environment variable, yes.16:48
brjannctheishi: use hard links instead16:49
ct529sipior: I meant, would it be rewritten by the CFLAGS variable that is in the Makefiles?16:50
theishibrjannc: can i use that for directories as well16:50
Gentoo64ct529, the makefiles will override it afaik16:50
sipiorct529: most makefiles are sensible enough to append such things. if not, patch the makefile.16:50
Gentoo64you could set export CFLAGS="" in /etc/profile16:50
brjannctheishi: no, you can only hard link files16:50

hydesterdoes anybody know if OpenSSL 1.0.0e security fixes are going to be backported to Lucid?  For example, CVE-2011-3207 and CVE-2011-320716:52
ubottucrypto/x509/x509_vfy.c in OpenSSL 1.0.x before 1.0.0e does not initialize certain structure members, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass CRL validation by using a nextUpdate value corresponding to a time in the past. (http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-3207)16:52

FlyOnTheWallI don't suppose anybody here has any experience in setting up a WPA2-Enterprise Wifi network using debian or ubuntu as the Freeradius server?16:52
ct529Gentoo64: only for the kernel, but the makefile structure is very complicated16:53
Gentoo64leave the kernel as it is16:53
Gentoo64you can turn off Os in the kernel itself16:53
ct529Gentoo64: what do you mean?16:53
Gentoo64and it should use o216:53
puffAh, found it in Accessories/Settings/Settings Mananger/Display.16:53
Gentoo64ct529, the kernel has options for similar things. i wouldnt use custom cflags on it16:54
sipiorct529: configure will generally honour the environmental variables it finds. that should be sufficient. don't use O3 in the kernel, btw (good lord)16:54
ct529Gentoo64: no, I am experimentig with kernel specifically compiled for my processor, with the -O3 --march=native flag on, to see how much we gain in term of performance16:54
Gentoo64disable "optimize for size"16:54
Gentoo64and select the cpu type you have ie core2/xeon16:54
Gentoo64the kernel is best left as it is it has its own optimizations16:54
ct529Gentoo64: I thought --march=native was disabling potimize for size16:54
Gentoo64optimize for size is Os16:54
Gentoo64disable that and you get O216:55
ct529Gentoo64: well, actually generic amd64 is not very optimized16:55
Gentoo64yes thats why you can choose16:55
Gentoo64processor type16:55
Gentoo64it has a small list16:55
Squarismis "i havent gotten it"... as in "i get it" in past sense, correct english?16:55

tixoswhen i login, i am not presented with the desktop, but 1 titlebar at the top16:56
ct529Gentoo64: exactly, this is what I did, but at compilation time I want to use --march=native, because I have noticed a difference on other compiled packages16:56
tixoshow can i reset?16:56
Gentoo64Squarism, i think so16:56
ct529Gentoo64: why would you not use -O3?16:56
Gentoo64ct529, probably placebo16:56
ct529Gentoo64: what do you mean?16:56
Gentoo64ct529, O3 will slow down 99.9% of packages16:56
Gentoo64makes bigger binaries16:56
ct529Gentoo64: why?16:56
Gentoo64need more cache16:56

Install works fine, it reboots. If I leave the USB drive IN, it boots off the USB (default), if I remove it I get blinky underscore17:59
Pumpkin-appi_uppi: my understanding though is on ubuntu you may need to rebuild the sshd package to allow you to do that.18:00
lexflexthe thing is that ubuntu - of all three - makes my work the hardest as i am fiddling all the time with issues that are "just working" on windows and os x. then again, i think both microsoft and apple are just E-V-I-L18:00
Tamale_Barbarian: sounds like the proprietary drivers aren't supported anymore for cards as old as mine18:00
Abhijittpyo, which working os you already have installed there?18:00
Tamale_I've heard people say open-source should work fine18:00
ubottu#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!18:00
tpyoon the last machine I did this on. None18:00
Abhijitlexflex, pls come to #ubuntu-offtopic18:00
tpyoonly one machine that ive done this one had another OS, the other two were clean18:01
BarbarianTamale_: Lemme go do some googlin', see what I find18:01
Abhijittpyo, and which is that os you are trying to install adn getting problem?18:01
Tamale_Barbarian: thank you18:01
tpyoeither Xubuntu or Ubuntu Studio18:01
tpyothose are the two I have tried18:01
tpyoUbuntu studio twice, Xubuntu once18:01
tpyowhat kind of error does a blinky underscore suggest. Is it not very common?18:02
sven_tpyo, at what stage?18:02
BarbarianTamale_: try this driver http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-8.42.3-x86.x86_64.run18:03
Tulitomaattiany idea how to control which network interface a process/program(s) use to connect to the internet?18:03
tpyoimmediately after boot18:03
tpyoe.g. post bios18:03
Tamale_Barbarian: you sure propreitary is best bet?18:03
lexflexall: i moved my interesting and highly controversial question to #ubuntu-offtopic as suggested by Abhijit. feel free to join and see how things turn out in the ever lasting fight of the OSes18:03
BarbarianTamale_: When it comes to hardware, normally yes.18:03
Abhijittpyo, try reinstalling grub18:04
tpyolike when you'd expect some console talking about booting or a nice screen showing the OS name and loading bar.... i get a blinky underscore instead18:04

KHendrikHi everyone18:05
KHendrikshort question installing ubuntu server on a software raid 10 how long should it normally take18:06
geoffmcctypo: i get that too, it locks up the whole pc, have to hold down power button to get to turn off,  but for me its display. i have to go into bios and turn dual display off and then it boots like a charm18:06
tpyoBarbarian, no, ctrl+alt+f5 does nothing, + del still reboots and nothing appears on the screen18:06
tpyogeoffmcc, id totally understand if it was the display except the Xubunut one at least boots fine off the usb18:07
sstaKHendrik: depends on LOTS of factors.  I wouldn't imagine it would take more than an hour though (unless you have HUGE disk or soemthing)18:07
sven_tpyo, i had the same problem with my fresh install. i booted rescue mode, and executed update-grub2 (or such) - then it worked after reboot18:07
tpyohow do i boot rescue mode?18:08
tpyofrom the usb?18:08
sven_tpyo, just boot another system (same architecture, livecd, usb, etc)18:08
Barbariantpyo, should be on the menu where u select OS18:08
sven_Barbarian, thats the menu he does not get ;-)18:08
Barbarianoh lol18:08
Barbariannvm me :D18:08
KHendrikssta: It#s been almost two hours so I#m kindof worried that something is wrong still the progress bar is at 40%18:08
sven_KHendrik, that is too long. but you can alt-f2 to a shell, use top, chroot /target, press alt-f4 to see logs etc18:09
theborgerKHendrik: sure you set it up right?18:09
KHendriktheborger, pretty sure did it all before18:10
theborgeryea something not right18:10
sstaKHendrik: hmm...that doesn't sound good to me...18:10
tpyoso i chose help and got a console18:10
tpyobut any combination of update -grub218:10
KHendriksven_, top not found18:11
tpyodoesn't seem to be good....18:11
tpyoso like... do I need to search somewhere to find the right command or am I at a bad prompt?18:11
sven_KHendrik, you first have to "chroot /target" - there you have what is installed so far in tools etc....18:11
tpyoshould I execute from the USB instead into "proper" xubuntu?18:11
=== mohammad is now known as Guest2581
* tpyo apologises for not knowing what he is doing D:18:11
sven_tpyo, so you booted from usb/cd, then mount your harddrive (mount /dev/sda???? /mnt) and chroot into it (chroot /mnt) - to find out which sda??? you need to use... either try sda1 sda2...5 or use your knowledge to find out :)18:12
K4kIs Ubuntu server set up not to auto mount CDrom disks like the desktop version?18:12
sven_K4k, i woul wonder if it did18:13
JoniiWhat's the difference between Libre Office and Open Office, and why did the default processor change from 10.4 to 11.10?18:13
sven_Jonii, libre is a fork, due to unclear support of openoffice's new owner - for you it should be the same18:14
sstaJonii: libre office is a fork of openoffice18:14
KHendriktop looks normal to me18:14
Joniisven_: "for me it should be the same"?18:15
K4ksven_: Any idea how I can mount it manually? I can't find /dev/cdrom or anything else like that18:15
sven_KHendrik, any busy process?18:15
sven_K4k, cdr* sr* sd[abcd] dont know sorry18:15
KHendrikmd1_raid10 and md1_resync but only like 4% cpu18:16
sven_Jonii, at the time of the fork taking place, both software products are 100% identical, then some names and logos get changed.... and thats where we are almost at18:16
