wizonesolutionsActionParsnip: We're both talking about ntfs-3g yeah? Just to confirm. Also, does NTFS-3G treat internal partitions different than external hard drives? I've got a couple externals that are mounting fine on another box, and actually other internal partitions too...dunno what's...different about this one!00:00
kanhiyaI found that Ubuntu 11.10 is just a crap of mind00:00
kanhiyawaste time in finding solutions of bugs00:00
kanhiyaSo manu bugs00:00
ActionParsnipwizonesolutions: the location of the partition is moot, as long as it is seen correctly by the kernel, all access is abstracted by the kernel.00:00
wizonesolutionsActionParsnip: Anyway, no luck with those options either. I put them in exactly as you wrote them.00:01
kanhiyaWaiting for LTS and will be last linux Distro , i will try otherwise will switch to Windows00:01
wizonesolutionsActionParsnip: Good to know. Probably diff NTFS-3G versions then is what's throwing me off00:01
tjkentwizonesolutions: what is your problem now?00:01
wizonesolutionsActionParsnip: All I needed on my home server was uid=<username>,gid=<groupname> and I was golden. But that doesn't seem to be enough here.00:02
wizonesolutionstjkent: Trying to get write access as my normal user to an NTFS partition.00:02
wizonesolutionstjkent: AKA, trying to mount it as such.00:02
tjkentyou can't mount it at all?00:02
tjkentwhen you try to mount it does it say that it is busy or can you not even see it?00:03
wizonesolutionstjkent: I mount it, but it basically ignores anything I specify about permissoins.00:03
wizonesolutionstjkent: Mounting works. But the permissions are not as I want.00:03
tjkentI am assuming that you are dual booting?00:04
ActionParsnipwizonesolutions: try changing ntfs-3g to auto00:04
KFPHi there.  I just upgraded my graphics card, but I can't seem to get it to work properly.00:04
wizonesolutionsActionParsnip: You mean for the filesystem basically?00:05
wizonesolutionstjkent: Yep, dual-booting.00:05
tjkentwhat is wrong with the permissions are you not able to write anything to it?00:05
agentgasmaskActionParsnip: No, I'll have to do that. I thought there might be 3rd party raid tools that would work with it.00:05
netninjawizonesolutions: not to be smart, I'm joining the convo in the middle, but did you just try "sudo mount /dev/<whatever> /<mountpoint>"?  Doesn't that default to auto?00:06
wizonesolutionstjkent: File/directory ownership. Users is owned by root/root, so I can't cd in or see anything.00:06
macPawnscan anyone help me get my touchpad recognized00:06

marabi2hello  netninja sup00:06
KFPMy old graphics card was an Nvidia GF 8500GT and the new one is an Nvidia GTX550 Ti.  When I try to use the Nvidia proprietary drivers, the computer refuses to start X, saying "kernel module NVIDIA not found".00:06
tjkentwell I got one way that you can do it, but I don't use ntfs-3g00:06
tjkentand I am able to do everything00:06
tjkentalso it mounts when it boots00:07
wizonesolutionstjkent: If it's safe...then I don't really care if it's ntfs-3g or not.00:07
wizonesolutionsnetninja: pretty sure that won't do it but humoring you, one sec.00:07

ActionParsnipKFP: did you remove the driver before switching the hardware00:08
wizonesolutionstjkent: OK so shoot00:08
tjkentpm'd it to you00:08
aikInsaan|homehow does one get to the Ubuntu GUI from bash shell?00:08
wizonesolutionsActionParsnip: Changing to auto wouldn't do it since netninja's suggestion didn't work.00:09
tjkentI wrote the whole thing for my school so I know that it works00:09
netninjaaikInsaan: "startx"?00:09
KFPActionParsnip:  Uh, I removed it afterwards.   ._.       Then reinstalled.00:09
tjkentwizonesolutions: did you get it?00:09
ActionParsnipKFP: did you reboot so that you were using the open driver for a spell?00:10
ActionParsnipKFP: you may want to add the xorg edgers updates ppa (not the xorg edgers itself) and instal the 285 driver00:10
marabi2hi ring2 sup00:11
kevin_hi all. any way i can default /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward and ip_dynaddr to "1"? or do i have to just set it to 1 always in an init.d script00:12
KFPActionParsnip: I think I'm using the open driver now (I deleted xorg.conf after X refused to start. Now I'm in X but not using the Nvidia driver.)00:12
KimbleHi.  I'm trying to grant write permissions to a CIFS share to a user.  The share is mounted thusly in fstab: user=transmission%,noatime,nodiratime,rw,noexec,_netdev,sync. Transmission is the user I want to be able to write to the share. But it keeps getting a permission denied error. Ideas?00:12
netninjawizonesolutions: try mounting with these options: "rw,auto,user,fmask=0111,dmask=0000"00:12
ActionParsnipKFP: does:  sudo lshw -C display | grep driver    show: driver=nouveau00:13
crazytranekevin_, i believe /etc/sysctl.conf is where you should look00:13
netninjawizonesolutions: remembering to mount with 3g ntfs00:13
crazytranejust add "net.ipv4.ip_forward=1"00:14
crazytranemight even be there already00:14
wizonesolutionsnetninja: Just tried similar with normal ntfs, will try with ntfs-3g (cc tjkent)00:15
wizonesolutionsThis is totally funky :D00:15
wizonesolutionsoh yeah, one thing to revise from my original statement because I guess NTFS-3G has moved on from what I knew. xattrs and POSIX ACLs *are* enabled00:16
wizonesolutionsit's by default, it seems00:16
netninjawizonesolutions: yeah, when I mount my Win8 partition from unity, it mounts this way automatically00:16
wizonesolutionsbut that may be interfering somehow00:16
KFPActionParsnip: It doesn't show anything at all. :\      (well, it shows "sysfs (PCI)" for a bit but that disappears after a couple of seconds.00:16
kevin_crazytrane: great. thanks a lot00:16
KFPEr, "PCI (sysfs)".00:16
crazytraneno prob00:17
aikInsaan|homehow does one get to the Ubuntu GUI from bash shell?00:17
ActionParsnipKFP: ok then try:  sudo lshw -C display00:17
wizonesolutionstjkent: You mentioned rebooting in PM, I just don't understand why I can't umount and then mount -a. What cached data or whatever is getting reinitialized upon reboot? Doesn't it just read from /etc/fstab like mount -a does?00:17
netninjaaikInsaan: startx00:17
KFPActionParsnip: http://pastebin.com/8VpZbtyW00:18
aikInsaan|homehow does one get to the Ubuntu GUI from bash shell?00:18
tjkentwizonesolutions: fstab is read when your system boots00:18
wizonesolutionsnetninja: No luck on those options either :/00:18
netninjawizonesolutions: wow.  tjkent is right: are you adding this in fstab and then "mount -a"?00:19
wizonesolutionstjkent: Yeah mount -a and normal mount commands also check it if for example I type "mount /mnt/windows" <--- my mount point00:19
tjkentaikInsaan|home: startx00:19
JetJaguarXPaikInsaan|home  The Ubuntu GUI should launch automatically00:19
wizonesolutionsnetninja: Yeah, I umount first00:19
aikInsaan|hometjkent: that doest work00:19
tjkentaikInsaan|home: what is the error00:19
ActionParsnipKFP: looks good, add the repo and install nvidia-current to get the 295 driver00:20
wizonesolutionsnetninja: And it *does* get mounted again, so it's responding somehow. I don't see how it could only be half-responding, hence my question about what is different about rebooting if both methods are reading the same file.00:20
bobweaverhello there I was looking aroung the net looking for top ten things to do after install ubuntu install. and Have found some cool stuff. but I guess I would like to hear from you also. Like what do you install after installing ubuntu. also I am having some troubles with my nvidia (02:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation C77 [GeForce 8200M G] [10de:0845] (rev a2))   I can not seem to get anything to record the desktop,00:20
bobweavercorrectly that is. also my interneal mic will not work here is alsa for that  http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=c862089cec79175cfa218c69e04a720c4460136d00:20
KFPActionParsnip: System -> Administration -> Additional drivers  says that the Nvidia (version current) driver is in use, but when I try "Nvidia X Server Settings" it says it's currently not in use. :/00:20
MaynardJKeenanif I instal the wireless drivers of my laptop through the software center00:21
MaynardJKeenan<MaynardJKeenan> should this fix my wireless problems?00:21
tjkentwizonesolutions: it worked for me00:21
netninjawizonesolutions: I'm not sure exactly what you mean, but if you "sudo umount /<mountpoint>" and then edit your fstab with the options I suggested, then "sudo mount -a" that should reload your fstab... is that what you're saying doesn't work, after you put what I suggested ("rw,auto,user,fmask=0111,dmask=0000") into fstab?00:21
bobweaverOh also I have xorgers repo and nvidia current00:21
KFP"You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver.  Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server."     <--- But when I do that, it refuses to start X.00:21
aikInsaan|hometjkent:  it says '-bash: startx: command not found'00:21
wizonesolutionsnetninja: That's exactly what I've been doing, yep.00:21
ActionParsnipKFP: but did you add the repo?00:21
netninjaaikInstaan: did you install the server version, or a version without GUI?00:21

stinkfistwhen i write sudo lshw -C network in the terminal they ask for password01:02
stinkfistwhat password are they asking for exactly ?01:02
DarwinSurvivorstinkfist: you are using "sudo" which asks for YOUR password to perform adminstrative actions01:02
stinkfistbut it never let me finishes typing it for some reason01:02
L3dcan someone explain to me how to add the xvba lines in etc/env ,cause i keep getting errors ,and i dont know if i need to justify and what not :/01:02
DarwinSurvivorstinkfist: what do you mean by "never lets you finish"?01:02
ActionParsnipDarwinSurvivor: could use:  df -h | pastebinit01:02
bobweaverM4dD0G:  after that run :  ./autosh.sh    then  ./configure   then   make    then make install01:02
borillionum how do you grep for things like symbols ex '->cow01:02
Picistinkfist: for security reasons, it won't echo back asterisks or anything when you type your password.01:02
stinkfistit always interrupts me saying Sorry try again01:02

stinkfist>.< i was pressing enter so i can see what i was typing01:06
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: good lord, why so many unused partitions? you have 10 partitions split between 2 drives and only appear to be using 1 of them (plus swap)....01:06
PiciL3d: Just type the lines in there that you need and save and you're done.  What part of it are you having issues with?01:06
ActionParsnipDarwinSurvivor: true but very worthwhile01:06
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: do you dual-boot into a bunch of other distros/os's?01:06
brightsparkHi, the icons for my volume and network connection (maverick; in the notification area) do not reflect my current icon theme.  How can I fix this?01:06
brightsparkgtk-update-icon-cache: The generated cache was invalid.01:06
ActionParsnipbrightspark: could try logoff then logon01:06
StepNjumpDarwinSurvivor.. I know... I need to recover the files from those old installations! I'm a real organization nightmare.. I know!01:06
L3dxvba needs to work with vaapi man ..01:06
StepNjumpDarwinSurvivor, no! not even... just ntfs that I'm slowly phasing out too01:07
StepNjumpI'm a work in progress01:07
L3dkeep getting errors at the vainfo01:07
brightsparkActionParsnip, thanks.  This has persisted across reboots for some time now.  When I actually open power management it uses the correct icon, but not in the tray.01:07
ActionParsnipbrightspark: does it affect all themes?01:08
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: well, bottom line: you are using a 35GB partition for *everything* in ubuntu and have 8.1GB of that left (line 2). try "sudo apt-get clean" as sudoman suggested01:08
bobweaverM4dD0G:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/761101/   <-- take that and copy to gedit   then name garmin-script  and put in home dirctory. then open terminal and do a chmod +x garmin-script   then run ./garmin-script01:08
tjkentI can't get my printer to show up in ubuntu01:08
StepNjumpYes I have done this DarwinSurvivor.. Haven't seen the error since01:09
tjkentI have downloaded the driver but it won't show up under printers,01:09
L3dok so i dont know hwta im doing wrong ,cant i just use synaptic for all this extra work ??01:09
brightsparkActionParsnip, yes.  I see the icon for the volume control and the logoff/shutdown menu change but not the icons for volume or network.01:09
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: it probably wasn't an error at all. the apt cache can EASILY take up multiple GigaBytes of space if not cleaned after a few months of updates01:09
StepNjumpDarwinSurvivor, which partition contains my grub info (/boot)?01:09
M4dD0Gbobweaver: ok thanks. will try it now. theres something wrong with svn. don't forget im not using ubuntu, but maemo5.01:10
sudomanStepNjump: if you didn't set it manually, it is under /01:10
StepNjumpBesides DarwinSurvivor, I'm not even sure which software was telling me that I was running out of space. Could have been ubuntu one01:10
sudomanStepNjump: ... the same partition that / is on01:10
L3dwhy is vaapi such a difficult thing ...01:10
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: from your post: the actual data is in sda6, but the bootloader is either directly in sda or sdb (check your BIOS to see which drive it boots from).01:11
StepNjumpok sudoman01:11
bobweaveroh M4dD0G what is maemo5 ?01:11
L3di see there is a diffrance in players and oss too heh01:11
StepNjumpI should have created a /boot partition though with all those other old partitions01:11
StepNjumpboots from sda01:11
DarwinSurvivorso /boot is part of sda06 (main partition), but it will be "activated" by a small bootloader in one of the 2 drives' boot sectors01:11
M4dD0Gbobweaver: os for nokia N90001:11
L3dcan someone pm me please to get thru this vainfo issue ?01:12
bobweaverM4dD0G:  we should take this conversation to #ubuntu-offtopic01:12
StepNjumpbut which partition... ! ??? Don't know... Not a problem. I will eventually reinstall the boot info in a /boot partition and do a update-grub but it scares the heck out of me01:12
sudomanStepNjump: i don't think there's much of an advantage of having a separate boot partition unless you are trying to encrypt as much as you possibly can. (you have to leave the boot partition unencrypted, because otherwise, you wouldn't have a kernel to perform the decryption.)01:12
StepNjumpOk guys, thanks for your help. I will let you know in case the error happens again01:12
StepNjumpWell that's another good reason sudoman. I want to encrypt my ~/ eventually so... good point01:13
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: sda6 ( mounted as "/" )01:13
L3dhow do i install tar.gz files again ?01:13
L3dill get the splitted desktop ones than ..01:14
sudomanStepNjump: but you can do that without encypting the the / partition. if you don't encrypt that, you don't need to install a separate /boot partition. you can just let them stay together01:14
M4dD0Gbobweaver: ok, sorry..!01:14
StepNjumpOk DarwinSurvivor.. Yes that's what I thought! thanks for confirming sda601:14
bobweaverM4dD0G:  this phone looks awesome !01:14
sudomanStepNjump: if you are interested in going all the way, look up installation instructions for "full disk encryption"01:14
L3dhow do i install the splitted desktop libva1 and xvba tar.gz,s01:15
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: basically, unless you see a drive mounted AS /boot, that means it is simply in the drive mounted as /01:15
StepNjumpoh I see what you are saying sudoman.. So I would just encrypt a separate ~/ on it's own partition?01:15
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: with ecrypfs you don't even need to use a separate partition01:15
sudomanStepNjump: actually, ubuntu supports encrypting individual home folders, but you could also encrypt a separate home partition01:15
StepNjumpyes but I wouldn't want my / encrypted all the way! That would be dumb no?01:16
sudomanStepNjump: the first might be easier to set up, i don't know01:16
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EncryptedPrivateDirectory01:16
netninjaQuestion: I had Ubuntu installed on my laptop with everything working fine.  I upgraded to 8gb ram from 2 (two new 4gb chips) and all of a sudden, suspend doesn't re-initialize the video after I bring it out of suspend, and hibernate doesn't restart from session on bring-out-of-hibernate, it starts fresh.  Memory checks out ok.  Any ideas?01:16
StepNjumpoh really! sudoman.. even my ~/Documents folder alone?01:16
StepNjumpThank you very much DarwinSurvivor and sudoman for all your help01:16
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: ecryptfs can be used to encrypt ANY folder (~/, ~/Documents, ~/Private, etc)01:17
sudomanStepNjump: well, you might want an encrypted /tmp and swap since those sometimes get temporary files from your home folder written to them. beyond that, it's a certain level of paranoia. (i have "full" disk encryption)01:17
L3dsplitted desktop has libva1 with patches ,is this still the normal libva1 ?or do i need a libva cause its now-where ,im lost here ,someone ?01:17
DarwinSurvivorsudoman: swap is a good idea, but /tmp is never written to the HDD, so there's no point encrypting that01:17
brightsparkActionParsnip, I just confirmed that the problem persists across logoffs no matter which icon set I am using.01:18
sudomanDarwinSurvivor: didn't know that... thanks for the heads-up :)01:18
DarwinSurvivorsudoman: oh, wait, hold on a second01:18
StepNjumpok great!01:18
DarwinSurvivorsudoman: nope, my mistake, it is on the HDD. I hade manually set it up as a ramdisk :P01:18
L3dicon problems brightspark ?01:18
sudomanDarwinSurvivor: good idea :)01:18
StepNjumpIwill encrypt just ~/Documents, /tmp and /swap then!01:18
L3dremove smplayer i think ..01:19
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: sorry, /tmp IS on the HDD, you can mount it as a ramdisk if you like, but that pre-allocates ram (make sure you have LOTS before doing that!)01:19
sudomanStepNjump: you mean "swap", no '/'. it's a partition, not a folder01:19
brightsparkL3d, yes- the notification area does not use the correct icons based on the theme I have selected.01:19
StepNjumpI don't understand DarwinSurvivor? I only have 2 GB01:19
L3dwhat player do u use ?01:20
brightsparkL3d, volume control uses the correct icon, but not battery or network01:20
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: the easiest (and most common) thing to do is encrypt the home folder of each user (~/), that includes Documents, Pictures, settings, cache, etc01:20
StepNjumpoh ok sudoman.. so swap partition has to be encrypted eh?01:20
blaodsahey can anyone tell me what getty is and where it is for?01:20
L3di got some other folder vieuw with smplayer some times ,i dunno01:20
StepNjumpright.. Well I don't care about my pictures.. Nothing that I need to hide there.. It's more my banking info01:20
sudomanStepNjump: it doesn't have to be... but if you are willing to find good instructions, it can be done.01:21
SolarisBoyits a vty no?01:21
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: you can make /tmp a partition that resides in RAM, but then you have a limited size for /tmp and part of your ram gets used up for it. I wouldn't bother if I were you01:21
brightsparkL3d, The program 'smplayer' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:01:21
brightsparksudo apt-get install smplayer01:21

SolarisBoyblaodsa: they are virtual tty's01:21
SolarisBoyblaodsa: they spawn the VT's you access with CTRL + ALT + FN01:21
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: when encrypting the home folder, it automatically decripts it when you log in (using you password), it's 100% transparent and VERY easy to use.01:22
SolarisBoyblaodsa: if tou have for instance 4 running you have like that many available virtual terminals that you can switch too01:22
L3dsom programs change layout wich can do some other layout changes i think .. dont know anything else01:22
L3dwhat do i use for installing tar.gz ??01:22
StepNjumpYes ok DarwinSurvivor and sudoman.. I appreciate all your explanations. BTW, is there a macro available for xchat that would type our correspondent's nick when replying on the channel? either by right clicking or anything?01:22
determinologyIve ran into another problem when im on windows the internet is fast but when being on ubuntu the updates+apps+internet browsing is slow..Any ideas and even sometimes it doesnt connect to the page and i have to refresh01:23
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: also remember that lots of applications (even banking ones) save stuff to ~/.config, ~/.local, etc in the home folder, so you should encrypt the entire home folder if you are going to bother encrypting in the first place01:23
brightsparkStepNjump, xchat has tab completion, which is probably easier to use in the first place.01:23
sudomanStepNjump: in weechat at least, you can start typing the first few letters and hit tab.01:23
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: type the first few characters, then hit <tab> for auto-complete01:23
jehoshua02Any tips on how to troubleshoot an "unable to read" message with ImageMagick?01:23
StepNjumpI know DarwinSurvivor. It's really nice. I had it before but got worried that in the event my X would crash, I wouldn't know how to decrypt at the TTY01:24
blaodsaSolarisBoy: and what can i set or run when i start getty in a normal console?!01:24

L3dyou,d say allways heh no ?01:24
SolarisBoyblaodsa: why would you want to start getty from a normal console?01:24
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: the link I posted includes instructions for manual decryption via command line01:24
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: besides, you should have external backups anyways :P01:25
L3di allready got catalyst ,does this change after this ?01:25
blaodsaSolarisBoy: because my teacher told me i should do it .. and he wants to know the anser.. :D01:25
StepNjumpoh nice, I'll try weechat! sudoman. Ok DarwinSurvivor.. copy that. I will encrypt the whole ~/ then01:25
SolarisBoyso you want your homework done?01:25
SolarisBoyblaodsa: your teacher told you you should do what?01:25
L3dim confussed01:26
blaodsaSolarisBoy: user getty in an normal console and find out what goes on ..01:26
DarwinSurvivorStepNjump: just make sure that you save a copy of the "encryption key" when you set up encryption (it will tell you to anyways). That key can be used to decrypt everything, so print/write it on paper and you will never lose your files :D01:26
L3dthis joint should make up for that01:26
SolarisBoythat doesn't make sense01:26
L3ddo i need additional restricted drivers after i allreadsy installed catalyst ?01:27
SolarisBoyyou can access getty from a normal console as long as your on a remote connection to the host (like DRAC or ILO) or you are in front of it01:27
L3dgosh i mean ubuntu restricked extras ,do i need those after catalyst ?01:28

neonflx2so a while back i got banned because i was voicing my opinion about the direction is heading with unity, i was not belligerent or did i use any foul language, the reason i got banned was because the op did not agree with my point of view, reality is that unity  has created some controversy and for the op to banned me just because it shows that we are not as "open source" as we think we are01:45
itscoolnetmind, forgot to mention that I was dragging sideways too with no success.01:45

itscoolKimble: you can make a backup folder in there and move them into there. and reboot, that should likely do the trick.01:53
=== brennan is now known as eternalulz
jsilvaActionParsnip: thanks but I don't want tinycore inside ubuntu, I want boot tinycore from ubuntu grub01:54
Kimbleitscool: i guess that's one way :)01:54
itscoolKimble: problem is, tho, what depends on them. will the be satisfied and will your system hang because they aren't running?01:54
L3dThe action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources. what do i do next to get gecko to install ?01:54
gogetajsilva: yea there grub script isnt very smart01:55
jsilvagogeta: :/01:55
Kimbleitscool: I've disabled them manually while booted and nothing seems to complain, so hopefully things should be fine.01:55
L3dim trying to update wine with the added url but i cnt get past that01:55
itscoolis there a unity config file that can be edited by hand to control the order of the icons?01:55
gogetajsilva: ever run puppy its nearly the same but a bit more loaded01:56
ActionParsnipL3d: how did you add the wine ppa?01:56
gogetajsilva: with mutch smarter installers01:56
KimbleUnless: I'm mounting a local cifs share usine fstab. Will uninstalling smbd, nmbd and winbind interfere with that?01:56

ldiamondI used to love Ubuntu, however, 11.10 has Unity only and I hate it. What are the alternatives? (I tried Xfce, but it's far less functional than Gnome was on Ubuntu... speaking of media keys on kb and some other basic functionality or bugs)01:56
ActionParsnipL3d: did you use add-apt-repository ?01:56
ActionParsnipL3d: or did you edit sources.list01:57
anadoni'm trying to print off a giant image from my standard printer.  How do I do this?01:57
gogetaldiamond: xfce is abought as close as you can get01:57
L3dlast one in settins01:57
ActionParsnipL3d: undo whatever you did, then in a terminal, run: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa01:57
ActionParsnipL3d: and you will have zero issues01:57
ldiamondSo no plans to have a gnome2-like UI in Ubuntu?01:57
gogetaldiamond: you can try mint with mate witch is a gnome 2 fork onto gtk3 but is still very early01:58
ActionParsnipldiamond: you can use xfce, looks and smells like gnome201:58
ldiamondActionParsnip, I tried Xubuntu and it's a sub-par distro01:58
gogetaldiamond: most ditros to me are sub par these days01:59
jsilvagogeta: is there a way to test grub2 files without rebooting?01:59
gogetaldiamond: linux is so busy trying to change they forget it wasent broken01:59
L3ddo i need third party developers repository and launchpad/rexbron?02:00
ldiamondgogeta, what distro do you use then?02:00
gogetaldiamond: arch02:01
itscooljsilva: found this, long read, but describe what you want to do with tiny core. >>> http://gr8idea.info/os/tutorials/tiny-core/install.html02:01
ldiamondsubpar as well?02:01
gogetaldiamond: arch comes with a base kernel and a package manager02:01
L3ddont know where thay came from ,i think ubuntu games is supposed to be there02:01
gogetaldiamond: you build it yourself02:01
ldiamondugh, I don't have time for that02:01
anadoni'm trying to print off a giant image from my standard printer.  How do I do this?02:02
gogetaldiamond: its very well documented if you can read and type ts easy02:02
ldiamondI used to run ubuntu 10.04. It was functional02:02
itscoolldiamond: you can also install gnome-desktop and that will give you a gnome2-like interface. i've got installed on mine.02:02
ldiamondin 11.10 isn't gnome-desktop giving you Unity?02:03
L3dhttp://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu is this normaly in the other sources list ?02:03
ldiamondare you referring to gnome-panel package?02:03
itscoolldiamond: no02:03
gogetaldiamond: lets hope when mate gets a bit less buggy ubuntu picks it up02:03
gogetaldiamond: so we all get the gnome 2 ui back02:03
L3dThird party developers repository02:03
itscoolldiamond: look at the description in synaptic for the entry 'gnome-desktop', you'll drool again.02:04
ActionParsnipldiamond: its the same distro, just a different set of default apps, the underlying mechanics are 00% identical02:04
gogetaldiamond: i think there is a ppa for mate for ubuntu02:04
gogetaldiamond: note its still very early most thing probly whont work02:05
netninjawill ubuntu run without a swapdisk?02:05
ldiamondActionParsnip,  what distro are you refering to?02:05
tofaHi I would like to update from ubuntu 10.04 32 bit to any release after and including 10.04 that is 64 bit, which my processor supports. I have a dual boot system. Is there anyway to do this from within ubuntu and thereby not disturb the dual boot?02:05
Hilikusdoes anyone know a way to update pulseaudio to 1.1? i can't find a ppa or anything for 11.1002:05
ActionParsnipnetninja: yes02:05
=== GNUdog|away is now known as GNUdog|work
L3dActionParsnip what is normaly in the other sources list btw ?02:05
gogetanetninja: yes swap is kinda pointless on systems with alot of ram02:05
ActionParsnipldiamond: xubuntu, its the same ubuntu, just uses xfce4 as the de instead of gnome02:05
netninjaActionParsnip: I think my suspend/hibernate issues are because I have no swapdisk, even though I attempted to install one.  How can I get the system to recognize the swap disk?02:05
OerHeksHilikus, build it yourself ?02:05
ActionParsnipL3d: the default repos02:05
ldiamondActionParsnip, yes, but the default apps don't work well.02:05
HilikusOerHeks: there's too many dependencies02:06
ActionParsnipnetninja: you will need swap for hibernate02:06
ActionParsnipldiamond: you can install gnome apps in xubuntu and they will run02:06
netninjaActionParsnip: so how do I get it to recognize?02:06
L3dcan i get a picie ?02:06
gogetaldiamond: you can install the aps you like after and remove the ones you dont02:06
L3dill look a picture up on google02:06
ldiamondgogeta, one being gnome :p. At least it would handle the media keyboard02:06
ActionParsnipnetninja: recognise what, the swap?02:06
ravenhow to control cpu frequency by cmd02:07
gogetaldiamond: one of the reasion i whent to arch to install the apps i whanted02:07
netninjaActionParsnip: am I to add the swapspace in fstab?02:07
ActionParsnipnetninja: you should have on02:07
netninjaI have a swapspace; it's not in use when I "mount" or "df -h"02:07
L3dno "other sources " is normaly on than i gues ?02:08
gogetaldiamond: wg i whant xfce4 with pidgin firefox and mplayer02:08
netninjaso, my question stands: how do I get the system to recognize the swapspace?02:08
L3dno getdeb.net gmaes02:08
gogetaldiamond: so only those apps are installed02:08
StepNjumpDarwinSurvivor sorry for not getting back to you. I was away. I just read what you wrote. Thank you.02:08
L3dfor games ?02:08
ActionParsnipnetninja: do you have it defined in /etc/fstab02:08
netninjaActionParsnip: hence my question, "do I make sure it's added in /etc/fstab?" :P02:09
* netninja checks02:09
ActionParsnipL3d: you can add the getdeb ppa with the deb on their site02:09
ActionParsnipnetninja: the default install will have made one and added it in fstab02:09
ActionParsnipnetninja: I am not aware of how you installed so cannot say for sure how YOUR setup is02:09
L3dim not shure how amny links were made with wine ...02:10
OerHeksnetninja, swap not in use means ready, but not in use yet.02:10
ActionParsnipL3d: after you add the deb, run:  sudo apt-get update    and the site will work as needed02:11
netninjaActionParsnip: I have a line in fstab which says "/dev/mapper/cryptswap1 none swap sw 0 0"02:11
netninjaOerHeks: I have no idea what that means02:11
ActionParsnipnetninja: oh you used encryptfs?02:11
netninjaOerHeks: oh, I getcha02:11
anadoni'm trying to print off a giant image from my standard printer.  How do I do this?02:11
netninjaActionParsnip: perhaps?  Not sure what that is02:11
netninjahow about, what's the easiest way to get just a basic, nonencrpyted, non complicated swapspace so I can hibernate?02:11
netninjaI have a 9gig partition ready for swap02:12
L3dok i get it a litle ,hoping it will overwrite whaevr it did first ..02:12
ActionParsnipnetninja: its a secure file system, you manually choose it at install time, it's not default02:12
netninjaI didn't know swap could be so complicated02:12
HQRajaKnow of any IRC client for Ubuntu that's as close to mIRC on Windows as it gets?02:12
netninjaActionParsnip: the only secure thing I picked was for my /home directory, not for this swap thing; regardless, I seem to have it on, so how might I fix my fugup? :/02:12
ring2HQRaja, xchat02:12
L3dso thaty did change after all heh02:12
HQRajaring2: Using it right now but kinda feel some lack02:13
ring2HQRaja, lack of what?02:13
ActionParsnipnetninja: if you encrypt it, then it can be a bit more complex02:13
HQRajaring2: Like the dead-simple alias/popups/scripting of mIRC for starters02:13
OerHeksnetninja, no swap on an encrypted filesystem is a security measure. you don't want a burglar recreate your data.02:13
ActionParsnipnetninja: maybe you need to run:  sudo swapon /dev/partitionname02:14
* netninja checks, and thanks :)02:14
HQRajaBut perhaps that's because I haven't really explored all the options of XChat yet?02:14
netninjaI'd really like it to not be encrypted, the swapfile... I could care less.02:14
itscoolnetninja: sudo swapon -s02:14
L3drighto connecting :)02:14
itscoolnetninja: if that returns a result table your swap is active02:14

ztag100hmm.. good to know02:18
ActionParsnipstinkfist: which wifi chip?02:18
ActionParsnipstinkfist: can you ping
itscoolnetninja: remove that entry and then check your partition setup and see if you still have a partition set aside for swap. then if you do, turn it into swap with 'mkswap <device' and then issue the command 'swapon' to active it.02:19
gogetasp4z: yea and anything dx11 will need windows anyways wines fails hard at dc1102:19
stinkfistill try02:19
ActionParsnipstinkfist: there is a native broadcom driver, you don't need anything manually downloading from the web02:19

stinkfistitscool no you see my internet works fine with ethernet02:21
stinkfistwhen i disconnect ethernet my wireless isnt working02:22

itscoolgogeta: not always, i've found that with ubu i have had to reinstall it on many occasions02:23
netninjaitscool: well, "swapon" and then "swapon -s" didn't work; "swapon" by itself demanded arguments, so I figured restarting was best02:23
itscoolnetninja: i should have mentioned to sudo it02:23
gogetaitscool: my old pcima on my c610 dell works out of the box02:24
stinkfistum its says network is unreachable when i try to ping my home grade routers02:24
netninjaitscool: I did :)02:24

itscoolgogeta: depends on which broadcom it is then i reckon.02:24
itscoolnetninja: is the partition you told it, was it formatted as swap?02:25
itscoolnetninja: it must be a dedicated partition. can't be shared with something else.02:25
itscooldo sudo mkswap <device>02:25
netninjaitscool: it was once formatted for swap, I'll format it again, and yes, it's a 9gig all by itself (I have 8gb ram, so I went 9gb swapfile for hibernate)02:25
* netninja formats02:25
itscoolnetninja: ie>> mkswap /dev/sda302:26
gogetanetninja: lol 9gb swap02:26
gogetanetninja: hibernate does not use swap btw02:26
netninjagogets: I have 8gb ram; larger than ram is required for swap for hibernate.  why are you lulzing?02:26
netninjagogets: I and Parsnip think differently02:26
itscoolnetninja: dear god man. I hibernate with a 4gb swap and loads of spare room left over. what you are you hibernating?02:26
tofaHi, I need to update from ubuntu 10.04 32 bit to a 64 bit ubuntu OS is there someway of doing this from within ubuntu?02:27
netninjaitscool: do yu understand what hibernate does?02:27
gogetaitscool: i hibernate with 1gb swap02:27
gogetaitscool: my system has 8gb ram02:27
itscoolnetninja: yes i do02:27
itscoolnetninja: i know the difference between it and sleeping as well02:27
netninjaoh neat.  that's great.02:27
netninjaso do I02:27
* itscool leaps for joy!02:28
stinkfistitscool my broadcom is internal. i think. it came with my laptop.02:28
netninjaso "what I'm hibernating" isn't really a valid question, then, is it?02:28
keithzgtofa: not so easily, but as long as you keep a separate /home partition (or at least back it up) it shouldn't be too hard to just reinstall but have everything act like nothing much happened ;)02:28
netninjasince it writes RAM to disk?02:28
stinkfistalso Actionparsnip i cant ping my home grade routers02:28
netninjaso, what's being hibernated will change every time...02:28
gogetanetninja: hibernate is a snapshot of the whole running prosses and sent to disk02:28
L3dits wierd i have extras and 3rd  pary but its all updates :)02:28
tofakeithzg: So how would I do that?02:29
gogetanetninja: maybe your thinking sleep thats to ram02:29
netninjagogets: yes, you're right, so... what does that have to do with "what are you hibernating?"02:29
itscoolnetninja: it is because i'm curious as to what you have that comprises 9gb of state that needs saving so your can turn your machine off, ship it to jupiter station 2 and restart it later after the red dwarf docks with port authority there. :) dude. I am a cat.02:29
* netninja bangs head off desk02:29
netninjaI know what sleep is02:29
netninjaI didn't say it writes to ram02:29
netninjaI said it writes ram to disk02:29
L3dthe update works from the console cool ,thnx actionman :D02:29
gogetanetninja: yea but not in the fasion you think02:30
netninjagogets: the only thing I'm not aware of is *where* it writes to disk (swap vs fs), which really, I don't care.02:30
L3dsome real action ..02:30
gogetanetninja: just whats running02:30
gogetanetninja: it goes directly into the fs02:30
netninjagogeta: I don't care what fashion it writes, I'd like it to work again; it stopped working when I upgraded my ram from 2gb to 8gb, and apparently my swap got fucked up as well.02:31
netninjaI'm less concerned with the specifics of something indirectly related to the actual problem, as I am to fixing the problem.02:31
gogetanetninja: oh its broken?02:31
L3dlaters pps and thnx for the help ,cant wait for the new version ,gona try buying it with a mag02:31
netninjaso getting hung up on where it writes to, I don't really care as much about as fixing the fact that it just *does* *not* *hibernate*02:32
toxedwhy dosent banshee close on xfce wen exited upon ?02:32
gogetanetninja: hibernate can be quite large in some cases02:32
L3ddo i need ubuntu server for my dual xeon server hpx400002:32
itscoolnetninja: easiest thing to do is back up the home partition, and create an install file from your synaptic. reload your ubu of choice. drop in your home partition during install and reload from  your synaptic file aftewards. but you won't discover anything that way.02:32
gogetanetninja: maybe to big and you run out of fs space02:32
CaptAnonCan anyone help me open a program in terminal Can not open display02:32
netninjagogeta: well, I have 40gb available on the fs, with just 8gig of stuff on the disk, an 8gig swap (which is now disabled), and 8gig of ram02:33
gogetanetninja: humm02:33
=== mike_ is now known as Guest43631
netninjaso unless 8gig of ram plus 8gig of files running very few system files takes up more than 40gb, that's not the issue, I'm afraid02:33
e75how can i change the device for sound output from the cli?02:33
netninjayeah, humm :(02:33
L3dhow does ubuntu server work ,is it bette for my server hpx4000 ?02:34
netninjaagain, this all works fine until I upgraded to 8gb of ram from 2; ram checked out fine02:34
L3dfaster than/02:34
itscoolL3d: are you using your machine for file serving or as a workstation or as a gaming platform?02:34
L3dmoslty games but i dl allot and make some funky music ehh02:35
L3ddamn my spellngs bad ..02:35
L3djsut think there are diff drivers like windows :s02:36
Artemis3netninja, did you do memtest after installing the ram?02:36
itscoolL3d: then you don't want 'server' that for things like file serving, apache and other stuff of an enterprise network nature. stick with the standard ubuntu for gaming.02:36
Artemis3netninja, you let a whole pass go perfectly?02:36
netninjaArtemis3: just a few hours ago as well02:36
netninjaArtemis3: yes, took almost 3 hours02:36
itscoolL3d: no, but if you are having driver issues please let us know as we might be able to help you solve the problems. :)02:37
L3ddont wana begin talking about windows here hehe02:37
Artemis3netninja, actually i have 8g of ram and no swap so that shouldn't be a problem02:37
itscoolL3d: oh, so you are finally fed up with bg trying to get you ready w8 and now you want to go Ubuntu? Yeah just do the standard desktop edition. you'll be fine.02:38
L3dwell im doingthat survay thing with the upd manager ,and i like this cjat altho it is very busy :p02:38
netninjawoah, crazy! - since blowing up my swap just a minute ago, now Hibernate isn't even an option any more02:38
itscooldon't bother with 64bit support, it's still weak. unless someone here says otherwise.02:38
Artemis3netninja, ok, if you want to hibernate, as opposed to suspend, your swap must be a little bigger than your ram02:38
L3daargh chat02:38
lhasapersonally i just turn off the monitor :|02:39
L3dim on 32 with one or 2 64 pci sluts02:39

itscoolL3d: well there you go, someone says otherwise.02:39
OerHeksitscool next release will be 64 bit recommended02:39
netninjaArtemis3: yes, I'm aware of that, and yet, people in this forum keep saying that and then the opposite of that; I've always believed that was true02:39
somsipitscool: :)02:39
netninjaArtemis3: however, there are plenty of people in this channel that say this is not true with apparent self-examples :(02:40
itscoolsomsip: OerHeks: you guys saying the flash issue with 64 bit has been resolved?02:40
Artemis3netninja, you swap should something like 8,1g, or perhaps 8,01g02:40
OerHeksArtemis3 is right, swap needs to be bigger than ram to store more pointers02:40
L3dknow what i like ,no more bad driver updates and the likes with this xfx card weeee02:40
somsipitscool: just connected here and it worked02:41
somsipitscool: gah...http://www.wechoosethemoon.org/02:41
OerHeksitscool, no, 64 bit will be recommended, not about flash at all.02:41
netninjaArtemis3: I'm formatting it for swap now at 9gb.02:41
Artemis3netninja, should do.02:41

netninjaweird - the swap partition needs to be formatted, isn't loaded as swap right now, but I can't format it since something has a lock on it.  I'm booting into livecd to format the partition and fstab is already updated to reflect the swap on startup02:51
the_truthis there any way to recover files after a reformatting?02:51
itscoolthe_truth: in linux you can use photorec from another linux like a live cd, and on windows there are loads of options.02:52

beatbreakerthe_truth, please explain the full problem03:26
the_truthi mean from click n drag too the file system03:26
aeon-ltdthe_truth: because you don't have permission to if it's outside your /home03:27

beatbreakerso you're in ubuntu, and you click and drag a folder form the desktop to somewhere else, and it doesn't copy?03:27
matinso does anyone know how to set up subversion?03:27
the_truthThe whole problem is im trying to recover files from my previous version of ubuntu and Im goin crazy tryin ta figure it out03:27
mazda01the_truth, ubuntu runs on the linux kernel where as OSX runs on XNU which has with much of BSD's code in the kernel03:27
beatbreakermatin, http://lmgtfy.com/?q=setup+subversion03:28
aeon-ltdmatin: try #svn03:28
matini meant that i need help03:28
mazda01the_truth, check out a live cd like system rescue which has dd_rescue on it. very cool stuff03:28
the_truthphotorec system rescue ahhhh how do i do all this?03:29
mazda01the_truth, i personally have a 16GB usb stick which has multi-boot on it which allows me to boot into ubuntu, system rescue, amongst other things. it's great for data recovery03:29
mazda01the_truth, just many many others before you learned how to do it. Use google and start reading.03:30

mazda01SultansElephant, i agree. LOL03:33
Flannelthe_truth: Except don't put a lot of faith in those working.  But it is theoretically possible.  First thing you need to do is ABSOLUTELY STOP using the drive in question.03:33

beatbreakerFlannel, sorry03:34
matinI'm setting up a server03:34
mazda01the_truth, you will want to use system rescue to create an "image" of the drive, then you will fiddle with that to see what data you can recover. this way , you aren't accessing the disk BUT only that one time to create an image with dd_rescue03:34
Flannelmatin: Alright, which tutorial? just so I know what steps they're having you go through03:34
mazda01the_truth, go to the other channel, much easier to help ya03:35

giikeranyone knows how to transfer file from a Mac to ubuntu?03:39
Flannelmatin: Alright.  In general howtogeek is a horrible place for accurate tutorials (for Debian based systems, they tend to do things the RPM based way), but this one looks pretty accurate (mostly because its straightforward).  What steps are you having trouble with? or just "get to end, stuff don't work"?03:39
netninjagiiker: can you mount the machd on the local machine?03:40
matinhaha ok Flannel03:40
netninjagiiker: if they're seperate machines and you just need to move some files, use dropbox :)03:40
matinwell now i just tried to import, svn import /home/fouad/public_html file:///triumph03:40

giikermatin: the file I need is 6 GB03:41

netninjagiiker: you can mount easily a linuxfs on the mac, and transfer it that way03:41
netninja(I'm assuming they're networked?)03:42
Flannelmatin: Alright.  That makes sense, now that I take a second look at that tutorial.  Let me ask, is your intent to do this via apache? (http(s):// links) or do you not care what protocol?  Do you want/need the apache browsing ability?03:42
matinthis is my first time using subversion03:42
giikernetninja: you mean with nfs maybe?03:42
matinmy objective is to subversion my website03:42
netninjagiiker: what is your linux filesystem?03:42
netninjagiiker: and are both machines networked, as in, visible to each other on the network?03:43
giikernetninja: ext403:43
Flannelmatin: Right.  So, you're already running apache on this machine (or don't mind running it if you're not already)?03:43

matini have that set up03:45
Flannelmatin: over http or https or both?03:45

matinill just stick with http for now03:49

tr3esHow do I change the size for the top bar in Ubuntu 11.10?03:50
=== Guest30218 is now known as dvz
Flannelmatin: So, lets make this work.  From that tutorial, I think you have a /svn directory, is this true?03:50
Flannelmatin: Alright, lets go ahead and delete that.  We have to re-create the repository anyway, so the least we can do is do it in a non-obnoxious location.03:51
netninjano matter what I do, I cannot seem to salvage this ubuntu install to get it to hibernate, suspend, or use a swapfile03:51

* netninja contemplates reformatting/reinstalling03:51
Flannelmatin: I'll come back to that, give me a sec.03:51
Flannelmatin: Do you have /var on a separate (large) partition, because you're expecting to put a lot of stuff in /var/www? or do we just have one partition with everything on it?03:52
matini moved html directory from /var/www03:52
matinto /home/fouad/public_html03:52

matinsorry tries, i don't use ubuntu03:53
matinnetninja, by myself03:53
Flannelmatin: No worries, everyone is new at some point :)03:53
netninjamatin: was there a need to move this directory?03:53
matinnetninja, nope :)03:53
matinseemed like a good idea03:54
Flannelmatin: Alright.  I'm not going to deal with that at the moment, but go ahead and pastebin the output of `df -h` (pastebin is http://planet.ubuntu.com/, you paste output, hit 'submit' then give the url here for us to look at)03:54
netninjamatin: and what are you trying to do exactly?  like, what are you using the /var/www/html or /home/you/whatever directory for, just your apache, right?03:54
Flannelmatin: Er, sorry. paste.ubuntu.com03:54
matinnetninja yeah03:55
matinand it's working03:55
matinFlannel, any directory?03:55

Flannelmatin: just `df -h`03:55
Flannelnetninja: Setting up subversion server.03:55
matinnetninja, I'm trying to set up an svn03:56
matini guess this is one of the drawbacks of learning coding on webhosts03:56
Flannelmatin: Alright, so we've just got everything in /, which is fine.  We're still going to put /svn in /var though, because that's where it belongs.  (There is no standard here, other than /var for variable sized data)03:56
netninjamatin: you're setting up svn into your html directory for your website?03:56
* netninja shuts up, Flannel obviously has this one :)03:56
matinok so how do i move it03:57
matinjust svnadmin?03:57
Flannelmatin: Personally, I made a /var/devel/ which I then put /svn/ and other things in, but you're free to just create it in /var/svn/03:57
matini cd'd into var03:57
matinthen i just do svnadmin create /svn?03:57
Flannelmatin: No, we're not moving, we're going to delete the old one: `sudo rm -r /svn` (Be very careful with that, you don't want a space in between '/' and 'svn')03:58
Flannelmatin: No03:58
matinalright deleted03:58
matinlol yeah deleting / would be pretty bad03:58
ResistanceFlannel:  PM for a sec?03:58
FlannelResistance: Always.03:59
Flannelmatin: Alright, now go ahead and make a svn folder, sudo mkdir /var/svn/ if you want it in /var/svn/ (for example, mine is /var/devel/svn/)03:59
matini just stuck with /var/svn04:00
SachinDeyI installed Ocelot yesterday and i don't see the GRUB before it startup, Grub   did install04:00
Flannelmatin: That's fine.  Ok.  So, in our head we realize we have to update the apache config to point there, which we'll do in a minute.  Right now, I need to ask: Is this going to be your only svn repository? or do you think you'll have an immediate need for more than one?04:01
ResistanceSachinDey:  if there's no other OSes, you wont see grub usually04:01
ActionParsnipSachinDey: if you hold shift at boot, do you see grub then?04:01
matinonly this one04:01
Flannelmatin: We can add more later, of course, so you're not really locked in, but we can do it for "1" now or for "many" now (with a little bit more work)04:01
Flannelmatin: Alright, good.04:01
=== aidenhong_ is now known as aidenhong
Flannelmatin: Alright, I'd normally say we're ready to create it, but before, I feel compelled to ask: did you change the default user/group that apache runs as?04:02

Flannelmatin: this would consist of replacing `www-data` with $something-else in your apache config.04:02
=== Auriel__ is now known as Auriel
matini feel as if a tutorial told me to04:03
Flannelmatin: This is why I asked :)  Also, did I mention howtogeek is a rotten place for tutorials yet? :)04:03
SachinDeyI see it now, thanks ActionParship04:04
SachinDeyIts just a solo linux machine, Resistance04:04
Flannelmatin: If you didn't change anything, /etc/apache2/envvars would list it, BUT since you may have hardcoded it, we'll need to probably check /etc/apache2/apache2.conf.  So, the command to do that:04:04
matinnano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf?04:05
Flannelmatin: Nah, we'll use grep, it's easier!04:05
matinah ok04:05
ActionParsnipSachinDey: if its only Ubuntu then Grub won't show as there isn't really much need, you can use the shift trick if you need recovery mode or an older kernel to boot04:05
matinso just sudo grep /etc/apache2/apache2.conf04:05
Flannelmatin: Let me pause this, because this is a teaching moment.04:06
Flannelmatin: So, `sudo` is only used when you need elevated permissions.  MOST (not all, but probably 99%) config files are world readable, so there's no reason to sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf (unless you intend to change something) or sudo grep /etc/whatever04:07
SachinDeyOne of the good thing about Ocelot is, the 10 seconds start up04:07
Flannelmatin: Its not the end of the world, most of the time sudo X will work just fine, but it can cause problems, and certainly can lead to accidental changes :)04:08
matinah ok04:08
Flannelmatin: anyway, the command you can pastebin the output to is: grep User /etc/apache2/apache2.conf && grep Group /etc/apache2/apache2.conf && grep www-data /etc/apache2/envvars04:08
matinthank you04:08
Flannelmatin: All on one line (command1 && command2 && command3 means 'do command1, then if it has no errors, do command2, and the same with command3)04:08

bowikaxu_can't create node servers :-S04:09
DroidInccan i use grid with gnome3?04:09
ActionParsnipDroidInc: sure, enable it04:09
Flannelmatin: So that command looked first for the string 'User' in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf, then it looked for 'Group' in the same file, and then the last command looked for 'www-data' in /etc/apache2/envvars04:09
DroidIncunder compiz?04:09
ActionParsnipDroidInc: yes, in ccsm04:10
Flannelmatin: The first two told me you haven't hard coded the values (theyre still ${APACHE_RUN_USER} and ${APACHE_RUN_GROUP}, respectively) and the last one told me you haven't changed the defaults for those settings either.04:10

the_hulkActionParsnip, ok04:13
ActionParsnipDroidInc: are you using unity?04:13
ActionParsnipDroidInc: Unity is a shell for gnome 304:13

matinFlannel, sorry had to get up for a second04:14
Flannelmatin: No worries.04:14
matinI'm good :)04:14
ActionParsnipDroidInc: if you press ALT+F2 and run:  compiz --replace    does it activate?04:14
Flannelmatin: Alright.  So, the point of that was to figure out what user and group apache runs as.  You're still default, which means it runs as www-data:www-data.04:15
roastedhello! I am unable to unmount my sd card. It just sits there for... well... forever. Literally. GParted, disk utility, etc. I'm also experiencing issues with this sd card in my phone. I was trying to pop it in my laptop to do a file system check but I can't unmount it to initiate the FS check. Any ideas?04:15
DroidInckilled my gnome304:15
DroidIncbut now my grid keybindngs work04:15
ActionParsnipDroidInc: you just need to reload the WM so it rereads the config04:15
matinFlannel: right04:15
ActionParsnipDroidInc: Gnome was untouched, only compiz changed04:15
Flannelmatin: Now that we know that, we want to make /var/svn/ owned by www-data:www-data (because the apache user is going to be how we interact with it): sudo chown www-data:www-data /var/svn/04:16
matinalright done04:16
DroidInccant alt f2 and no terminal open =X04:16
roastedthis sd card is driving me crazy...04:17
Flannelmatin: Now, we're ready to create our svn repository.  Again, we want to do this as our apache user.  So we'll use sudo to open a shell as our apache user, then move to our subversion directory, then make a repository.  What name do you want to give this repository?04:17
roastedonce I forcibly unmount it, it wont come back unless I restart my laptop. awesome04:17
Ed_Moneyhow can I back up my home directory in recovery mode?04:18
matinFlannel: triumph04:18
Flannelmatin: Alright.  So, `sudo -u www-data -i` (it likely won't ask for your password, but if it does, remember, it's YOUR password)04:19
DroidInchow do i reload gnome wm now04:19
Flannelmatin: then you'll see probably nothing but a `$` prompt.  You're essentially logged in as apache right now, you can probably `ls` and see your site's files.  So we want to change to our subversion directory, `cd /var/svn/`04:20
Flannelmatin: and then create our repository: `svnadmin create triumph`04:20
matinwhen i did ls04:20
Flannelmatin: sure04:20
matinit says ls: cannot open directory .: Permission denied04:20
Flannelmatin: Oh, this could be due to the fact that you moved it to your homedir.04:21
StepNjumpmatin you may need to chown04:21
StepNjumpmatin go on your terminal and type ls -al04:21
Flannelmatin: You can cd /var/svn/ and `ls` successfully though, right? (it'll be empty, but it wont error)04:21
matinsudo chown www-data:www-data /home/fouad/public_html04:21
Flannelmatin: No, don't do that.04:22
StepNjumpOh sorry Flannel, I didn't realize you were helping him04:22
matinoops i just did that :P04:22
Flannelmatin: That's alright.  It gave you a "you're not allowed" message anyway, because you're www-data, right?04:22
matinyeah Flannel04:22
matini can cd into svn and ls04:22
matini mean /var/svn04:22
Flannelmatin: (even if you did it as your user, we can fix it later)04:22
Flannelmatin: right.  So, `svnadmin create triumph`  (we could have just did `svnadmin create /var/svn/triumph` instead of cd etc too, but this is obviously more educational :)04:23
NorthwoodsWhen i run localhost , it says Forbidden , you dont' have access to /04:23
matinwhere do i do that04:23
Flannelmatin: Just in the terminal, where you're currently in /var/svn/ as www-data04:23
Flannelmatin: Same terminal04:23
matinok created04:24
Flannelmatin: 'triumph' in that case is a relative path, 'whereever I am' being the default working directory04:24
Flannelmatin: Alright, now we want to get out of our www-data terminal, and go back to your normal user, so we use `exit` (which is similar but different than logout)04:25
matini also use exit to exit ssh04:25
vicroolap view for linux???04:25

Flannelmatin: At least, that's probably where it is.  You may have done it differently if you were using a different tutorial.04:27

arkanabarStepNjump,  yep, it's the newest version.04:51
arkanabarI remember something about the URI being autoconfigured wrong last time, but I can't find anything on that.04:51
StepNjumparkanabar, did you run it with the printer connected or unplugged?04:51
Flannelmatin: Alright, so you have (line 19): SVNPath /svn/triumph, this needs to be /var/svn/triumph04:52
arkanabarStepNjump, I don't suppose I've run it.  Which is better, & should I delete the printer I have now?04:52
StepNjumpWell, when I installed my printer, it worked fine but when I ran hplip, my printer was not connected arkanabar04:53
Flannelmatin: If you look at your error log, it was looking for /svn/triumph/format (format is a file in the repository that apache was looking for), which is how I knew this wasn't configured correctly (should be looking for /var/svn/triumph/format)04:53
matinRevision 004:53
matinso…. how do i use it lol04:53
matini know git04:53
matinwhere you do git push origin master04:54
arkanabarStepNjump, hplip is apparently a metapackage.  what command do I need to actually run?04:54
Flannelmatin: So, now go back to your homedir, make a scratch folder, go into it.  `svn checkout https://playtriumph.tk/svn/ .`04:54
Flannelmatin: That'll checkout the repository (its empty) to your current working directory (which, you've made a new folder for)04:54

StepNjumparkanabar, also, ensure your printer is supported before trying to install it04:55

arkanabarStepNjump, hplip:  command not found04:55
StepNjumpIt doesn't support ALL HP products!04:55
arkanabarStepNjump, it is.  I got it to work on my lappy just fine.04:55
Flannelmatin: Install svn on your macbook.... I don't really know how to do that :)  We CAN do it on your server too if that's easier04:55
StepNjumpof course, you have to download the app. Hold on04:56
StepNjumpI think you should run it by ./hplip04:56

arkanabarhow about that.  it just up and worked this time.  who can figure?05:02
StepNjumpThen just download it.. but be CAREFUL to read every screen before going to the next screen. ALSO ENSURE your printer is NOT connected UNLESS at the end when HPLIP asks you to connect the printer05:03
StepNjumplol arkanabar...  likes the website05:03

Flannelmatin: You need to svn add first.  You've checked out, then you copy (filesystem) then add (files from filesystem into svn), then commit.  `svn status` will tell you what has been added (not yet committed), or question marks mean "not under version control"05:21

ActionParsnipSp0tter: which GPU too?07:08
zeroedoutcrystal: is the vendor "ati" "nvidia" or something else?07:08
ActionParsnipSp0tter: looks like an ION equiv for ATi, should be fine07:08
deserteglactionparsnip: let me browse the links you provided, thank you. and PS. I do understand it can work on other releases, I just read that out of all releases, 9.10 had the best performance.07:09
crystalzeroedout, vendor: Intel Corporation07:09
zeroedoutcrystal: Then there is no proprietary driver :D! Are you experienceing any problems with the default driver?07:10
Sp0tterActionParsnip: its much better than an ion07:10
Sp0tteraccording to benchmarks07:10
Sp0tterAMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics07:10
crystalzeroedout, yes the videos/flash games seem laggy and fuzzy. But it could just be my computer.07:11
ActionParsnipSp0tter: I'm not an ati fan but should be fine, were the benchmarks under Linux?07:11
Sp0tteri'm a huge ATI fan, i have 20 ATI/AMD cards running now :)07:11
ActionParsnipSp0tter: then ION may work better, differnt OS. Benchmarks in Windows don't necessarily reflect Linux performance07:11
zeroedoutcrystal: flash sucks. let me state that again, flash sucks. For youtube, go to www.youtube.com/testtube look for "html5" and join the test for that. That will give you great performance, but not every video uses html5 yet (it will default back to flash if the video doesn't do html5)07:12
ActionParsnipSp0tter: I use only nvidia, they have supported Linux for as long as I've used it (started in 2001)07:12
chalcedonythe only reason for using ati is price07:13
Sp0tterand btc mining07:13
zeroedoutcrystal: You can try dwhelper, to download videos in their native format. That will give you good performance on them, even full screen, but it does require the extra step to download07:13
aum__zeroedout, i think when we invoke a command using sudo or gksudo and we are a sudoser then it always ask for a password...07:13
ActionParsnipzeroedout: works fine here, not had an issue07:14
crystalzeroedout, thanks for that. How about other videos, I want to view online. Not downloading though.07:14
nevynActionParsnip: really I thought nvidia support only arrived quite recently due to dave airlie's efforts07:14
zeroedoutcrystal: As a third alternative, you can try a lighter webbrowser, chrome, rekonq, qtweb, or epiphany may deliver better performance. But I'm not certain that will help. dwhelper is probably your best bet (but it does require that one extra step)07:15
ActionParsnipnevyn: it's been ages. I was running proprietary driver on my Riva TNT2 Ultra 32Mb07:15
nevynoh.. proprietary driver. yeah that's not supported by linux07:16
xflash does suck, and flash support in 64bit linux is even worse.....07:16

ActionParsnipx: 64bit flash works great here in chromium daily build.07:17
zeroedoutActionprsnip: I've had flash work great with properietary nvidia drivers, but the problem is that it is not a long term solution. When nvidia drops support for the card, I'll either be stuck on an ancient kernel or novoeu07:17
xActionParsnip, hrm. well I can't have any other sound playing or it doesn't work for me which is annoying and it seems to lock up firefox all the time. i'd use chromium but there is no option to make all the text a certain size which is a deal breaker for me.07:18

bobweaverhow to stop ubuntu from installing popularity contest on install ?07:50
its_menevyn: I don't understand. A bit more clear please? (I am new to git & programming)07:50
xwhat is popularity contest ?07:50
kazagistaralmoxarife: are you saying I can use MS-DOS or something to run it?07:51
almoxarifebobweaver: remove the package07:51
wookienzguys, i have a WD 2 drive Raid 1 USB device. One of the drives has gone bad. any chance i can just remove the good drive, stick it in my ubuntu system and mirror it just in case the other goes bad/07:51
bobweaverx:  Iit is used to giveinfo to devs about what is installed on your computer07:51
xbobweaver, as in developers ?07:51
bobweaverx: yes07:51
xhrm weird. I have never heard of it.07:52
bobweaverdebian package I think07:52
almoxarifekazagistar: run a bios upgrade?07:52
nevynits_me: so if you like github use github. if you want to keep everything onsite. then there are a bunch of options.07:52
varys0101x: interesting pavucontrol -- i have no concept however on what settings are optimal -- im confused at what these two devices even are. on windows its just realtek driver or whatever. ive got an HDMI device that shows activity and internal stereo audio that doesnt07:52
kazagistaralmoxarife: yeah, one that does not work in freedos07:52
xvarys0101, are you using a stereo wire out for audio on your pc?07:52
its_menevyn:  okay, thanks.07:52
bobweaverx:  https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/popularity-contest07:53
nevyngitolite will do really nifty access control for central internal git cannonical repositories I use it every day (it can do nifty things like per branch and per file tree restrictions)07:53

cheshairHi! I was told to get and try instantbird as an irc client. On my Ubuntu 11.10 repos is not present, though. Is there any particular reason for this? Or is it just that the package is yet to be created?07:53
xbobweaver, weird. sounds almost like spyware (harmless though) but for linux haha!07:53

Resistancecheshair:  there's other IRC clients available, if you cant find one07:53
xvarys0101, I mean, how are you getting audio out of your computer. using speakers connected via analog or... ?07:54

varys0101x: my problem is just ignorance and not knowing what the right setting is most likely. yeah i can get sound just not exclusively from the headphones07:55
bobweaveralmoxarife:  I just remove with apt before running ubiquity ?07:55
cheshairandrew_46, i am using xchat but i don't like it very much, i can give irssi a try but i preferred something more of a gui than of a tui07:55

StarryNightanyone is running nvidia video card?07:56
Resistancecheshair:  its closer to pidgin than IRC client07:56
bobweaveralmoxarife: sweet I will try07:56
ResistanceStarryNight:  yeah, but not one with Optimus.  Sup07:56
xvarys0101, so it plays through your internal speakers and your headphones currently ?07:56
bobweaveralmoxarife:  I hope that it is not build into ubiquity07:56
almoxarifebobweaver: it will probably brake ubuntu-desktop though07:57
cheshairandrew_46, yes but i thought it was better using software from the ubuntu repos (does this idea of mine make any sense?)07:57
* bobweaver needs to learn more about live cd 07:57
xbobweaver, if when you do that command, it wants to remove alot of packages. don't do it lol07:57
StarryNightoh just wondered i installed the drivers for it but i noticed jitter and would evey few seconds just freeze the screen for like a second or so when watching a movie07:57
ResistanceStarryNight:  i get that too, sometimes.07:58
bobweaverx:  lol07:58
StarryNightwondered if thats common07:58
ResistanceStarryNight:  could be just the movie, or some weird issue with your card, but i dont think its uncommon07:58
ResistanceStarryNight:  i've seen it with nvidia, intel, and ati(amd) cards, so its not specific to nvidia07:59
andrew_46cheshair: From the repository is recommended but should not limit you completely :). Looks easy enough to install, give me a sec and I will try it07:59
gnome-xchatim new to ubuntu and lovin it07:59
cheshairResistance, i see... i didn't get that, thanks for pointing out. Main issue form me is that I am looking for some confortable way of turning on my pc and having automatically logged in in my IRC chans of choice. With xchat autologin capabilities this is a pain, as far as i can se07:59
xvarys0101, in alsamixer if you use your arrow keys to scroll, you see nothing in there named speakers or something that would indicate it controls the laptop speakers?07:59
ResistanceStarryNight:  also, there's a bunch of other factors that cound impoact that07:59
bobweaverI dont care if it is on my computer as long as dpkg dont touch it :>)07:59
Resistancecheshair:  nothing will *easily* do that07:59
Resistancesave for pidgin or stuff like it07:59
varys0101x: i dont get any sound anymore i totally just screwed around too much its a settings thing .. re: alsamixer yes i see speakers07:59
Resistancecheshair:  anything that claims to be instant messaging and irc...07:59
cheshairResistance, ah thank you so much07:59
Resistancecheshair:  is probably not a full irc client07:59
Resistancecheshair:  you can set xchat as a startup item though08:00
Resistancei.e. after you login it loads08:00
StarryNightwhen i run windows i have no problem but just linux but if i just use generic drivers i dont get that issue just with nvidia drivers for linux08:00
Resistancebut i'd not recommend that08:00
xvarys0101, ok. hit M on the one called speaker and the 00's should go away on the bottom.08:00
varys0101x: master, speaker, pcm, front, front mic jack mode, S/PDIF, S/PDIF Default PCM, S/DIF Playback SOurce, Beep08:00
xvarys0101, make sure everything except speaker is unmuted.08:00
kazagistarwhen I turn on my netbook normally, it blackscreens right away until I turn it off, but if I turn it on in recovery and "resume" it boots normally08:01
varys0101x: do i want it MM or 00 is one muted or something08:02
xvarys0101, MM is muted08:02
cheshairResistance, each time I launch xchat, it automatically log me in in ubuntu channel, which i do not want. There is a way to change this, of course, but i didn't find it, that's a bit frustrating. Anyway, you already answered my question, thank you very much08:03
Resistancecheshair:  #xchat for xchat help08:03
Resistancecheshair:  but you're welcome :)08:03
cheshairResistance, yes sure08:03
varys0101x: thanks for your help, i got it to work by turning speakers bar all the way down (while unmuted)08:03
varys0101handy alsamixer thing08:04
varys0101muting speakers though makes both headphones and internal speakers go away08:04
xvarys0101, hrm ...08:04
varys0101but turning speakers to 0<>0 is a workaround it seems08:05
garden92how would i install a game from an iso?08:05
xvarys0101, in pavucontrol on the config tab. under the card ur using (internel audio) or whatever. in the dropdown box of options does it have any like line out or something.08:05
xvarys0101, I don't doubt what ur saying it's just weird that it would work that way.08:06
kazagistargarden92: if it lacks more nasty copy protections, you should be able to just mount it and run it (in wine if it is a windows game)08:06
=== aidenhong_ is now known as aidenhong
varys0101x: nope08:06
varys0101x: three options with the word "output"08:07
xgarden92, if it's a new game, or one that uses like alot of resources it probably won't work / run very well in wine08:07
andrew_46cheshair: This will get you a look at the application in action anyway: http://paste.ubuntu.com/761376/ It is a single command...08:07
xvarys0101, your using the internal audio analog, like an intel chip or something ?08:07
varys0101x: yeah i guess according to alsamixer its..08:07
StarryNightok so i signed in with 2d ubuntu and it seems to fix the problems08:07

its_menevyn: Ubuntu Software Center has gitolite + gitweb (as addon for gitolite), which is easier to install. Do they have the same interface as GitHub?08:08
garden92X: its a linux port and i think older then 0408:08
its_menevyn: (This is a private project and I wouldn't host it on another service)08:08
xgarden92, if it's ported to linux why do you need wine?08:09
andrew_46cheshair: If you like the application you should be able to drop the whole folder and contents in /usr/local08:09
cheshairandrew_46, fine08:09
garden92x: thats just what kazagistar said. im not trying to use wine08:09
xvarys0101, oh. well i'm not sure on the details of that kind of card (IDT?) but if turning down the speaker vol works for you i'd say go with it since im not sure what else you can try if muting the speaker also mutes the headphone.08:10
xvarys0101, the only control I know that should affect everything would be 'pcm'08:10
xor master obviously...08:10

windbtw, if you dare to disable journaling of the hfs+ partition then you can use them without fuse in linux and it might be bit faster09:38
xINodeNotHere, what do you mean system upgrade, just install the new updates? or upgrade whole distribution ?09:38
mazda01then i overheard a guy wanting an adapter for his android phone that he could plug in and convert signal to composite or component connection. they were looking at the little usb mini connector. i had just grabbed a cable for my iphone to output my video/audio signal to my tv. so this poor customer wanted to do the same with his android but he must have had an older android without the output capabilities09:38

mazda01INodeNotHere, i haven't upgraded in a long time and it may have changed09:39
mazda01INodeNotHere, no, I mean I may be wrong09:40
INodeNotHeremazda01: i googled it you are right09:40

astro771i have installed wubi and get dumped to {initramfs} when I reboot saying it can't find device ... any pointers?  (win7, 64 bit ubuntu 11.10 )09:40

blackshirtINodeNotHere: can you boot on single mode ?09:44
truepurpleSomething changed with nautilus and it no longer has a list to the left of drives and stuff, how do I get that back?09:44
mazda01auronandace, that's sort of incorrect thing to say IMO09:44
Lasers_truepurple: Toggle on "Sidebar" in one of the file menu.09:44
xmazda01, I think he is right though honestly....09:45
Lasers_truepurple: Press F9 could work. I'm not on linux right now so I can't check that really fast. :(09:45
mazda01truepurple, ins't it under View, then check mark sidepane?09:45
blackshirtastro771: i have no play with wubi, but if you want, i think maybe better to install on dedicated partition09:45
mazda01Lasers, yeap, F9 works09:45
skegeekI was setting up ebox, and now i cannot login to my accounts because ldap password is incorrect. Any way to reset?09:45
Lasers_mazda01: Cool. Thx. :)09:45
auronandacemazda01: howso? wubi is meant to be a demo or preview for those only comfortable with windows systems. (linux was never meant to be installed through windows)09:45
mazda01auronandace, because something was "never meant" for something, that means it can become so? Was man meant to fly? was man meant to go into out space?09:46
INodeNotHereblackshirt: what is single mode?09:47
mazda01auronandace, wubi is meant for the lowly windows users who wants to try out ubuntu, and the ubuntu install from wubi can NOW be moved if so desired to it's own dual boot setup.09:47
INodeNotHereblackshirt: you mean single user mode?09:47
happygoluckyi think he's talking about run levels09:47

mahasonabut when I do I get this error ERROR: Module usbserial is in use by option,usb_wwan09:49
INodeNotHeremazda01: the system does boot fine, i think the issue is something todo with gnome. i get everything OK when the system boots. just the GUI doesnt kick in right09:49
mazda01INodeNotHere, if it did crash during a upgrade, you just have to work thru the items that didn't get upgraded OR start again BUT first backing up your stuff you can't lose. so you would use a live cd or usb stick, mount the partition you want to restrieve data from, save it elsewhere, then feel confident you can do a fresh install09:49
INodeNotHeremazda01: sounds like a plan, thanks09:49
astro771I tried to install it while Microsoft Clikc-to-run had a virtual partition available and the install crapped out on it ... removing the virtual partiiton and trying again ... unable to get it working09:49
mazda01INodeNotHere, well, if it is merely a gnome thing, drop to tty1 and install a new desktop manager09:50

blackshirtmahasona, if you have question, just ask ..09:50

happygoluckyAdvoWork: is what you're looking to install smbfs?10:12
ikoniainashdeen: ubuntu-tweak is not something I'd recommend10:12
ikoniainashdeen: you just remove the files you no longer want/need using the file manager10:12
theadmininashdeen: That should be clean enough. You can also safely wipe /tmp and /var/log/ unless you need stuff in those10:12

RTYGY45how do i ask ubuntu in the command prompt to install gnome GUI ?10:26
RTYGY45apt-get install gnome..?10:26
TACPILOTI applied the recommended patch to the header files10:26
ikoniaTACPILOT: ok - why are you trying to do this as the busybox version ubuntu ships is compatible with the 3.0 kernel10:27
ikoniaTACPILOT: the 11.X repos contain busybox that is compatible with 3.X kernel10:27
TACPILOThowever is like the build system doesnt even know there there10:27
ikoniaTACPILOT: the 11.X repos contain busybox that is compatible with the 3.X kernel, so why are you trying to build another version ?10:28
TACPILOTwhy does it never fail I spend more time trying to justify a project and its needs then actualy getting answers10:28
ikoniaTACPILOT: because it's important to understand the question and the situation10:29
ikoniaTACPILOT: so many people do the wrong thing because they are not aware of option10:29
TACPILOTthe question still reamains .. is there something I need to do with the header files after applying a patch that will enable the system to utilize the change ?10:30
ikoniaTACPILOT: is there a reason you are dodging the question10:30
ikoniawhy are you trying to build a busy box version, when the 11.x repos contain busy box that is compatible with the 3.X kernel10:30
ikoniais there a specific reason you can't use that version ?10:30
TACPILOTsee what I mean .. since I been here I have asked one question and still all i get is a dance10:31
ikoniaTACPILOT: it's easier if you just answer the questions so we can understand your situation/reasoning better and help10:32
TACPILOTwhat question is that ?10:32
ikoniaTACPILOT: why you are trying to build your own version of busy box, when the 11.X repos contain a pre-compiled version that is compatible with the 3.X kernel10:33
TACPILOTperhaps its the wrong version .. but still that question has nothing to do with answering mine10:34
ikoniaTACPILOT: it is, you should use the ubuntu pre-built version, it's compatible with the 3.0 kernel as you initially wanted10:35

ikoniaTACPILOT: you're using 11.X, and 3.X kernel, the busy box version in the repo would be a much better option, it works, it's pre-packaged, it's supported10:35
TACPILOTyes that would work for 99% of situation .. but then if that was a solution I wouldnt be here in the first place.10:36

jferhrolf: window +shift + 1 also works10:49
RTYGY45you are talking to users10:49
TACPILOTmy question is with the standard build environment .. how do u get the system to see changes made to the installed headers ?10:49
RTYGY45you have a problem with a patch or a code then go ask the right people10:49
soreauTACPILOT: By helping us understand what is wrong, you could potentially help other users which is what the open source philosophy provides10:49
KFPHow can I find my stuff in Unity?   I just upgraded from 10.10, and now I can no longer find my main data hard drive.   It used to be nicely listed in the "System" menu, but nothing like that is no longer around.10:49
ikoniaTACPILOT: how are you changing the installed headers ?10:50
KFP(Well, yes, I can find it in the terminal.)10:50
KFP...But isn't there any GUI access to it?10:50
TACPILOTI directly patch the file10:50
ikoniaTACPILOT: what command are you using to patch the headers10:50
hrolfjfer: That's what I was looking for. Opening a new instance of the app. For Ctrl + N to work I must be in the Home folder (or in Nautilius)10:50
TACPILOTbecause of version differences patch wont work so I had to do it by hand10:51
jferhrolf: yes that should work for any app that you want a new instance of.10:51
muhammedis there any other software like empathy which can be minimized like empathy10:51
ikoniaTACPILOT: right so you've changed the files by hand, so you know they are different10:51
ikoniaTACPILOT: so the build process will see them as different based on what you've changed10:51
ikoniaTACPILOT: so what is the issue ?10:52
TACPILOTcontent is still valid10:52
ikoniaTACPILOT: so what is the issue then ?10:52
TACPILOTis there a command needed to run to update the build environment to see changes made to the headers ?10:52
ikoniano, it's dynamic10:52
ikoniaTACPILOT: what is the actual issue you are seeing10:53
TACPILOTI  can completely empty /usr/src/linux yet its like headers are still present in the system ??10:53
ikoniaTACPILOT: why do you think that ?10:54
BesogonHi. Have you notived that If you use Chrome or google chrome extensively it become freezing on web page downloading?10:54
ikoniaTACPILOT: I don't believe there should be /usr/src/linux on ubuntu10:54

sgo11hi, I am upgrading to 11.10 from 11.04 online. The state is 'Installing the upgrades about 8 minutes left'. I don't know if I press anything wrong by mistake or something weird happens. The popup window tells me "Could not install the upgrades: the upgrade has aborted. Your system could be in an unusable state. A recovery will run now(dpkg -configure-a)." what to do? should I click the 'Close' button? Currently, I still have unity running.....10:55
TACPILOTi made link for it was not there10:55
ikoniaTACPILOT: ok, so that maybe part of the issue, /usr/src/linux isn't how ubuntu does it (compared to redhat)10:55
ikoniaTACPILOT: ok, so you're doing your own thing, whcih is possibly why this isn't working10:55
DarsVaedaanother question about unity :( I have libreoffice opened, but there is no icon in the launcher/sidebar/window-desktop chooser, how do I get my libreoffice back?10:56

mr_louHey. I've just installed Ubuntu 11.10 at work. Running an older version at home. Why can't I rearrange the Close-Window X _ [_] buttons on windows anymore? And where do I move the side-bar? It's on the left, I want it on the right.10:56
TACPILOTwhere does ubuntu store reference to current valid headers ?10:57
deej1976DarsVaeda: Have you tried ALT-TAB10:57
DarsVaedayes there is nothing too10:57
ikoniaTACPILOT: I've answered your original question as you asked - I'm not helping any more as I shouldn't have to beg for you to give me information in order to help you10:58
TACPILOTI could have headers and full sources for a half dozen kernels .. how does it know which to compile against ?10:58
ikoniaTACPILOT: there are documents on https://wiki.ubuntu.com and https://help.ubuntu.com10:58
DarsVaedaif I just open the file again then the window pops up again, but that is not like a solution ;)10:58
KFPWhere in Unity can I find my other hard drive?   The "Files & Folders" option in the launcher only lists stuff in the "Home" folder.10:58
deej1976DarsVaeda: Are you sure libreoffice is running?10:59
DarsVaedathe file is locked10:59
TACPILOTmy question is and has always been about the build system ... all those other questions just clouded the issue10:59
theadminKFP: Just start the filemanager, nautilus, it should have them listed on the left side10:59
DarsVaedaand as said if I open the file "again" I get back the window10:59
TACPILOTI could have headers and full sources for a half dozen kernels .. how does it know which to compile against ?11:00

Myrttimbrochh: have no idea, I use emacs :-P11:09
ikoniaMyrtti: sorry11:09
sgo11ikonia, anything easier than re-install? it seems the partial 11.10 is working properly. I just don't know what it's missing. the upgrade process was aborted when there are only 8 minutes left. (out of more than 1 hour installation process).11:09
Myrttiikonia: no prob, just got me confused for a fraction of a second11:09
ikoniasgo11: personally, the failed installs never leave a good state, in my view. the best option to me is always a clean install to go to a known good install state11:10

ubottumr_lou: 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".

truepurpleSidewinder1, I downloaded a file from their site that put it into the software center, and then I clicked install from there12:10
truepurpleSidewinder1, 5 minutes ago12:10
truepurpledr_willis, how about adding a icon to the menu?12:11
truepurpledr_willis, in internet with the rest12:11
dr_willisi dont use gnome-classic. so no idea.12:11
dr_willisits likely it may appear there if you log out/back in.12:12
Guest14859how can I check how much disk space I have left in ubuntu?12:12
dr_willisGuest14859:  df -h command is one way.12:12
dr_willis!info alacarte12:12
ubottualacarte (source: alacarte): easy GNOME menu editing tool. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.13.2-2ubuntu3 (oneiric), package size 52 kB, installed size 348 kB12:12
dr_willistheres always the menu editor tool to add menu entries.12:13
Guest14859dr_willis: thanks12:13
truepurpledr_willis, where-how12:13
dr_williswhere how what? alacarte is a gui tool to edit the menus.12:14
dr_willisused to be you could right click on the menu to laucnh it.. no idea if that works in the classic modes or not.12:14
afidegnumhello, pls how do I enable cron in ubuntu?12:15
dr_willisafidegnum:  cron is installed/enabled by default.12:15
ubottucron is a way to schedule execution of software/scripts. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CronHowto12:15
dumb1224 Hi, how can I suspend when using a WM like openbox?12:15
dumb1224                  without root passwd? uPower?12:15
MonkeyDustor alt-f2 alacarte12:15
truepurpledr_willis, ah that worked, how do I give it the opera icon though?12:17
INodewhere can i find a log of gnome errors, gnome does not start when i boot my computer12:18
glebihandumb1224, http://openbox.org/wiki/Suspend_and_hibernate12:18
dumb1224glebihan: oh thanks12:18
glebihandumb1224, you're welcome12:18
dr_willissudo updatedb , locate opera.png    see where the icon is at.12:19
dr_willisINode:  so gdm login screen works?12:20
dumb1224glebihan: well pm-suspend requires sudo, in ubuntu theres scripts which doesn't require root to suspend or shutdown, like, press the power button12:20
truepurpledr_willis, what does that command do?12:20
Chris_____How do I download Ubuntu Latest pre packed with GNOME 3?12:20
dumb1224glebihan: isn't there?12:21
dr_willistruepurple:  looks for the file opera.png  using the locate database12:21
INodedr_willis: no it does not. boot seems to go fine, everything says OK next to it. but rather than the normal gnome log in screen i get a small icon of a computer and then the name of my computer in the center of the screen12:21
glebihandumb1224, not sure as I don't use openbox, but I think it would have been mentioned there if there was12:21
dr_willisINode:  you could try booting to 'text' mode and login at teh console and see what 'startx' gives for errors.12:21
INodedr_willis: the time is also displayed in the top center on the screen12:21
truepurpledr_willis, so I type sudo updatedb opera.png?12:21
dr_willisINode:  that sounds like its booting a messed up gnome desktop12:22
dr_willistruepurple:  its 2 differnt commands...12:22
INodedr_willis: ok i will do that12:22
dr_willissudo updatedb then  locate opera.png    see where the icon is at.12:22
Sidewinder1dumb1224, "Pressing the power button" is rarely a good idea. If you're referring to the button on the CPU; instead, have a look at REISUB.12:22
dr_willisINode:  you have it set to auto login?12:22
Chris_____How do I download Ubuntu Latest pre packed with GNOME 3?12:22
Sidewinder1!reisub | dumb122412:22
ubottudumb1224: In an emergency, you may be able to shutdown cleanly and reboot by holding down Alt+PrintScreen and typing, in succession, R, E, I, S, U and B. For an explanation, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key12:22
dr_willisChris_____:  find some unoffical remastered ubuntu.12:22
INodedr_willis: i found a bunch of files inside /var/log/gdm should i delete all them and try and boot again. i should have a nice small list of log files then right? based around my issue12:22
truepurpledr_willis, updateb seemed to do nothing, not a menu to search or anything12:22
ubuntuanyone using the new ubuntu12:23
INodedr_willis: no auto login is disabled. i have to enter my password normaly12:23
Sidewinder1Not here,. :D12:23
Chris_____dr_willis:  are such packages stable?12:23
dr_willisINode: i would go to text mode. and try 'startx' and see if theres any error messages. You are using gnome-shell? or unity?12:23
ubuntufunny side lol12:23
dr_willisChris_____:  no idea. they are not supported here.12:23
dumb1224Sidewinder1: thanks, but I meant the script to shutdown/suspend my laptop without asking for passwd12:23
Sidewinder1dumb1224, OIC.12:24
RTYGY45what is the startx used for ?12:24
dr_willisINode:  it could be some weird breakage in your gnome settings. You could try making a new user and see if you canlogin as them.12:24
Chris_____dr_willis:  Okay, any way install GNOME3 on ubuntu?12:24
dr_willisChris_____:  gnome-3 is on 11.10 by default12:24
deej1976!notunity | Chris_____12:24
ubottuChris_____: 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 !classic12:24
INodedr_willis: i dont even get to the login console. this happends before i log in12:24
dumb1224Sidewinder1: I found a little script in /etc/acpi/powerbtn, it defines an event when the powerbtn pressed some action is done12:25
Chris_____ubottu:  Ty12:25
ubottuYou're welcome! But keep in mind I'm just a bot ;-)12:25
dr_willisINode:   try text mode, and the startx command perhaps. the way you describe it - it sounds like its auto logging into the gnome-shell.12:25
INodei think unity is installed, but i normaly just use ubuntu-classic interface12:25
INodedr_willis: ok will do. back soon. thanks for the hel12:25
INodedr_willis: are there an log files i should pay extra attention to12:25
Sidewinder1dumb1224, I hope it works the way you want.12:25
ubottuYum! Err, I mean, APT!12:26
dr_willisINode:  id test by making a new user. if a new user works.. then its points to a user setting issue.12:26
auronandace!cookie | Sidewinder112:26
ubottuSidewinder1: Wow! You're such a great helper, you deserve a cookie!12:26
INodeINode: OK, i will boot into text mode add a new user and get back to you, thanks for the help12:27
Sidewinder1Yum! Err, I mean, APT112:27
truepurpledr_willis, what does "sudo updatedb" do? It does not look for any files12:27
dr_willistruepurple:  it updates the locate database for the locate command to use...12:27
dumb1224Sidewinder1: but the problem seems it only gets invoked when the powerbtn is pressed12:27
dr_williswithout it locate will not be seeing the newest files.12:27
dumb1224Sidewinder1: anyother case it still asks for passwd12:28
dr_willisor you could just use the package manager tools to see what files that opera.deb installed where. it proberly installed some opera.png somewhere.12:28
Sidewinder1dumb1224, I stink at scripts; especially ones that I have screwed up, myself.. :-( Sorry..12:28
truepurpledr_willis, Sidewinder1 looking in the menu editor more, it seems there was a icon already, but it wasn't showing, the command was something like "opera %u" when I changed the command to "opera" the icon showed up.12:29
truepurplewhat was the deal with that?12:29
dumb1224Sidewinder1: thanks all the same12:29

Sidewinder1!rootirc | Guest931812:30
ubottuGuest9318: It's not technically our business, but we'd like to tell you that IRC'ing as root is a Very Bad Idea (tm). After all, doing anything as root when root is not needed is bad, and especially bad with software that connects to the Internet.12:30
dr_willistruepurple:  i imagine it defaulted to looking for an opera.png in the icon paths.12:30
dr_willisif the command was foobar  it would look for foobar.png  i imagine12:31
truepurpledr_willis, I don't know what you mean, but I mean, the ending of the command that I deleted made the link itself not show up in the menu12:31
RTYGY45dr_willis i'm trying to install a minimum ubuntu and now i'm in the command pompt. how do i install a GUI ?12:31
Sidewinder1dr_willis, Or, was the "%u" a variable for current user?12:31
dr_willistruepurple:  if there was an opera menu item allready when you ran alacarte.. it most likely ment it was added by the package manager tools.. but you needed to log out/back in or refresh the menus to get it to show, and you dident need to do any changes by hand.12:32
dr_willis %u = url passed to the item i imagine.12:32
tjingboemwhat is the command to see if my joystick works?12:32
dr_willis!find jstest12:32
ubottuFound: jstest-gtk, jstest-gtk-dbg12:32
dr_willistjingboem:  try jstest-gtk :)12:33
styelzmaybe Guest9318 is a virus12:33
* styelz hides12:33
Sidewinder1styelz, Doubtful, but one never knows.. :-)12:33
Sidewinder1styelz, I've always wondered why so many run chat clients as root..12:35
tjingboemdr_willis. that's a great program, thank you!12:35
dr_willisSidewinder1:  because some distros/live cd's default to root  by default12:36
* styelz ponders12:36
truepurpledr_willis, no, when I added a link to it before noticing the old one, that showed right away. But the old one did not show until I deleted that extra stuff at the end of the command for it. Any idea what %u (or something like that) might be meant to do and why it would cause the link to not show?12:37
Sidewinder1dr_willis, I always learn somethin' from you! Thanx. :D12:37
styelzSidewinder1: me too12:37

raven11.10 how to set cpu frequency to "on demand"12:40
theadmin!clone | ziro`12:40
ubottuziro`: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate12:40
dr_willistruepurple:   its a command line argument.. that gets passed to the app.12:41
ubottuWays to automate installation of Ubuntu on multiple machines are described at https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/installation-guide/i386/automatic-install.html - See also !cloning12:41
theadmin10.04? That's old12:41
ziro`maybe i just need to write a bash script12:41
dr_willisziro`:  i did an install to a 32gb flash drive. set it up how i liked.. then 'dd'ed it to other machines to clone its install.12:41
dr_willisziro`:  depends on your needs....12:41
ziro`it's more for building new production servers as well as setting up development vms12:42
ubottuUbuntu can be installed in lots of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall - Don't want to use a CD? See http://tinyurl.com/3exghs - See also !automate12:42
dr_willisso you got some complex needs. :)12:42
ziro`well, i didn't think it was so complex :)12:42
raven11.10 how to set cpu frequency to "on demand"12:42
dr_willisYou want identical clones,  the usb/dd trick can work. :) or mondo/mindi12:43
dr_willisactually mondo/mindi last i looked ages ago - could even ask/set hostname and other differnt defaults after it restored the system12:43
ziro`well, we really want scripts to build these machines12:43
dr_willisGo for it. :)12:44
ziro`so we can install the later versions of packages than we'd usually just by changing the script we build from12:44

truepurpledr_willis, if ubuntu doesn't care about the command, why would it hide the link because of said command?12:45
llutzraven: sudo cpufreq-selector -g ondemand12:47
dr_willistruepurple:  could be it was looking for 'opera %u.png'12:47
dr_willistruepurple:  could be the opera package makers messed up also...12:47
ravenllutz, does not work12:48
ubottuDoesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.12:48
dr_willistruepurple:  could be you just needed to refresh your menus also and the opera %u might have worked..12:48
truepurpledr_willis, but the link itself didn't show, because of this comand, and this wasn't in the part for which icon to use, but what command to run12:48
z3braDoes somebody knows how to add a tabulation at the beginning of multiple line with VIM ?12:48
dr_willisgnome has known issues with not seeing changes to the menus items untill it gets refreshed.12:49
truepurpledr_willis, but new menu links showed right away, how do you "refresh the menu" anyway?12:49
ravenllutz, it still idles on maximum frequency!!!!!!!12:49
dr_willisz3bra:  how many lines? you could make a macro12:49
dr_willisz3bra:  or do it once by hand and use the . key to repeate it.12:49
ravenwhere to find tray icons like from mounted truecrypt sessions12:49

Gentoo64raven, in the system tray12:50
z3bradr_willis "^" represent the begginning of the line ?12:50
ravenGentoo64, there is NO system tray and NO truecrypt icon with NO option to unmount volumes12:51
theadminz3bra: Yeah12:51
xanguathere is a cpufreq indicator raven12:51
Gentoo64raven, dno then. you can unmount from the truecrypt gui12:51
ravenxangua, where12:51
z3braOkay ! Thanks a lot dr_willis and theadmin !12:51
z3braBye !12:51
ravenGentoo64, i cannot access the GUI12:51
Sidewinder1truepurple, Rebooting will generally refresh everything; we do, however, try to avoid that as it is somewhat, winblozish. I would assume a logiout/logout would refresh most items.12:52
ravenGentoo64, because there is NO tray icon to come up with this gui again12:52
xanguaraven: http://askubuntu.com/posts/37997/revisions12:52
xanguaand other seful indicators http://is.gd/mOLuUu12:52
Gentoo64raven, you dont need it12:52
Gentoo64raven, click the truecrypt program icon12:52
ravenGentoo64, how to do it then12:52
Gentoo64raven, or in terminal try truecrypt12:52
Sidewinder1logout/login, even.12:53
ravenGentoo64, truecrypt already running12:53

Sidewinder1Mornin' Browser12:54
smethiaHi Tom12:54
Gentoo64that would solve ur problem12:54
ravenGentoo64, do you know anything about this unity/gnome3 crap?12:54
truepurpleSidewinder1, there isn't a better/easier way? And why would one menu link require a refresh, but another wouldn't?12:55
Sidewinder1truepurple, I have no idea, sorry. Perhaps you might consider (if you've solved the problem) moving on to the "next item on your list." I will say that I have never added a program, form the providers/writers site, to Software Center and installed form there..12:57
Sidewinder1from, even.12:58
ravenxangua, why theese applets do not apopear after relogin12:58
Sidewinder1truepurple, I prefer Synaptic12:58
truepurpleSidewinder1, except I wouldn't know how to add it with synaptic12:59
xanguaraven: run indicator-cpufreq ¿12:59
Sidewinder1truepurple, That's partially my point. For me, I don't install anything, with few exceptions, not listed in Synaptics 35,000 choices.13:00
Sidewinder1truepurple, Even then, sometimes after installation, there's no icon and I launch form CLI; but usually that's for programs that I rarely use.13:02
dr_willisIf you used the .deb package. you basically did install it with synaptic, (or some other apt tool)13:02
dr_willisI imagine its the package  thats not runnng some post setup command to tell gnome to rescan13:02
truepurpleSidewinder1, its got lots of random files that are hard to search through, its confusing the way it works, and just because some program like opera isn't listed in it, doesn't mean I shouldn't use it13:02
dr_willisOpera I think is in one of the repos.13:03
ubottuOpera is an advanced, fast and free (as in beer) web browser. It is packaged for easy installation into Ubuntu. More information at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OperaBrowser13:03
Sidewinder1truepurple, You are correct on all counts.13:03
dr_willisive had to many issues with oprea the last few months ive used it. back to using chrome.13:03

truepurpledr_willis, like what kind of issues?13:04
jason00Question - let's say I have an SD card with an EXT3 partition that will not unmount. I fell asleep last night with my computer trying to unmount it via nautilus and it sat there for the better part of 6 hours unable to unmount. It was still trying when I woke up. Any ideas?13:04
dr_willistruepurple:  its not syncing with opera on my phone like its supposed to. and im constantly finding sites these days that have special features that dont work with opera.13:05
dr_willistruepurple:  main reason i was using it on the pc. was because i was also using it on my phone.13:05
ravendr_willis, all apps that make ubuntu ready to work at least a bit sensefully       http://askubuntu.com/questions/30334/list-of-application-indicators13:05

the_misfitor just pull the damn thing out and stop being a baby13:06
dr_willisraven:  most of those indicator applets came out after the 11.10 release i belive.13:06
getitfixedHow do I package ubuntu 11.04 for xoom13:06
jason00the_misfit: stop being a baby? pardon me? The SD card doesn't WORK when I try to use it.13:06
truepurpledr_willis, Sidewinder1 I have flash installed, but it has a graphics update problem, where if I click a button that is meant to change a screen, it does not change fully, and I get broken artifacts of the two screens, the one before, and the one I am suppose to be at. Scrolling down on the webpage, and back up, updates the graphics, but moving something from another window in front of it, does not. This is the same in both opera and fir13:06
truepurpleefox, not in midori but that browser has lots of other issues, including with its flash13:06
dr_willisraven:  with any luck they will get included in teh default repos for the next release.13:06
jason00the_misfit: I'm trying to understand what's wrong with it. It's not about it properly unmounting, it's about it not working and it won't properly unmount as a result.13:06
the_misfitjason00: i was in jest i apologize you got offended. So the problem is ?13:07
superZoomhow do i run GUI app from terminaa13:07
jason00the_misfit: read above.13:07
dr_willissuperZoom:  type its name..13:07
dr_willissuperZoom:  ie 'gedit' to run gedit...13:07
the_misfitjason00: Does the OS detect it?13:07
jason00the_misfit: apologize I got offended? Or apologize you acted like a child? There's a difference.13:07
ravendr_willis, will canonical then think about the users again?13:07
the_misfitjason00: Relax, let's move on to your problem please!13:07
dr_willisraven:  pointless and off topic discussion.13:07
jason00the_misfit: the SD card is from my phone. FAT32 and EXT3 partitions. The EXT3 partition shows up as 0.0 B when its 2 gb in size.13:08
dr_willisThe focus for the next release from what ive seen will be 'polishing' the disrto.  so we will have to see what happens.13:08
jason00the_misfit: the SD card with EXT partition contains apps to my phone, so its necessary it works and I realized right away it was acting up13:08
jason00the_misfit: you know, I just did a backup - I wonder if it kicked it to my EXT partition and not FAT and maxed it out???13:08
the_misfitjason00: well, is your phone reading the data?13:08
ravendr_willis, most important to discuss about otherwise ubuntu will become 100% crap very very soon13:08
jason00the_misfit: FAT yes, EXT no.13:09
pangolin!ot | raven13:09
ubotturaven: #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!13:09
jason00the_misfit: FAT is data, EXT is apps13:09
jason00the_misfit: I thought maybe the FS was corrupt.13:09
jason00raven: I happen to like Ubuntu's recent decisions. Very much in fact. Sorry you disagree, but other distros are available if you so choose.13:09
the_misfitjason00: have you tried mounting it using a live cd13:09
BarkingFishjason00: apologies for butting in, and I know this is OT - but what phone do you have? I've never seen one which reads linux partitions off a storage card.13:10
jason00BarkingFish: android.13:10
superZoomdr_willis: Surprisingly it is working now, but before i change owner and trying to run from root terminal, and it was giving error13:10
the_misfitya BarkingFish, he prob has a rooted phone13:10
BarkingFishok, thanks.  I think it's time for an upgrade for me :)13:10
jason00BarkingFish: my android is super low end and has so little space for apps, so I partitioned the SD card with 2gb EXT3 and used Link2SD (avialable in market) to automatically sym-link things over so I utilize the 2GB spot for apps instead of the lowsy 170mb onboard memory.13:10
jason00BarkingFish: the_misfit yes, my phone is rooted and flashed. :D13:11
jason00the_misfit: the other thing is, If I have the card in my laptop and unmount it, my laptop wont ever detect it again unless I reboot the laptop13:12
=== dirtypillows is now known as ShameSpiral
the_misfitjason00: Try booting a live distro like.. Partition Magic or something13:12
the_misfitand see if it sees both part13:12
truepurpledr_willis,  Sidewinder1, can you help me with my flash trouble?13:12
the_misfitat least eliminate the hardware possibility first13:13
BarkingFishjason00: One thing I'd also like to check - where did you partition the card into Ext3? Is it on the same distro you're on now?13:13
jason00BarkingFish: I partitioned it with gparted on ubuntu. I've done a lot of backups/recoveries lately so I wonder if osmething got corrupt....13:13
jason00the_misfit: here's what's weird... ext is giving me the headache, yet it operates fine on ubuntu. the fat partition comes back with 0 bytes used yet theres data on it. Strange...13:13
a433bon configuring squid proxy13:14

jason00jtokarchuk: yeah. I wonder if I borked it. :(13:14
a433bi do that how ?13:15
jason00the_misfit: whats wrong with GParted in Ubuntu vs GParted on Ubuntu livecd?13:15
BarkingFishwell ext3 is journalised, isn't it?  Would having a damaged journal affect it in any way?13:15
ShrekHello, how to change the interface language of Ubuntu 11.10?13:16
ShrekI want to use German and Portuguese.13:16
jtokarchukjason00, shouldn't matter, I'm thinking he means don;t use "dr. bobs magic partition creat0r recoverererer 5000"13:16
jason00BarkingFish: I'm not sure. I may just have to redo the card. I was trying to do a FS check but I cant do a FS check unless its unmounted... but it wont properly unmount... this is why ( the_misfit ) I was trying to spend so much time unmounting it.13:16
the_misfitjason00: well, it's my impression that your installed OS can't read the FAT partition, correct, and you're unsure if it's a hardware or software issue13:16
the_misfitjust a suggestion13:16
jason00the_misfit: my OS is Ubuntu. Ubuntu can read/write/sleep/eat FAT32.13:16
jtokarchukjason00: Stupid question but all the pins on the card are of course clean and not separated?13:16
jason00the_misfit: the fact Ubuntu CAN read it, yet its saying 0 bytes used, makes me wonder if its corrupt13:16
Sidewinder1truepurple, What you need to remember is that Opera was originally designed as a 'stripped-down', light weight browser. I would think Flash and other 'heavy', items might be problematic. Flash in Firefox, on the other hand, should kind' take care of itself; unless it's a graphics- card/driver issue..13:17
jason00jtokarchuk: oh yeah, we're good there. I never even pulled the card out to the laptop until I saw I was having issues on the phone. The issues didnt come about until I did a recovery and 3 backups.13:17
jtokarchukjason00: if ubuntu can play with ext3 fine I would backup what you have and just format your card, you probably have a damaged partition table, it doesn't know what's listed for the fat32 so it just reads 0B13:17
jason00jtokarchuk: which takes the 2gb partition + the phones onboard storage, zips it, and saves it to the FAT partition13:17
truepurpleSidewinder1, its not taking care of itself, I installed opera because firefox was having trouble with the flash, and opera updates the flash screen better, but still has the same problem13:18
jtokarchukjason00, as annoying as that is that's probably the proper solution13:18
BarkingFishWell I have to go guys, but I will say this  - for what it's worth, I've attempted to mix partition types on a card before (for a PC, not for a phone) and it never turns out well.  They're prone to taking a nosedive from my personal experience.13:18
jason00jtokarchuk: I'm fine with it. I was just trying to understand what caused it. :(13:18
jason00BarkingFish: with all file systems? Or just EXT?13:18
BarkingFishjason00: My last mix was Ext2|Ext313:19
jason00BarkingFish: k, appreciate it.13:19
Sidewinder1truepurple, Im' sorry that I can't be of further assistance. :-(  As I'm currently running Firefox 3.3.24 along with Lucid, 10.04 and it all 'just works', including flash..13:20
BarkingFishif it's not unmounting properly, the only thing I can suggest is that you shutdown your machine, remembering to do an ALT+SYSRQ+E to sync your disks first, then ALT+SYSRQ+R to remount the system Read only before you do.13:20
Sidewinder1Oops, make that FF 3.6.24...13:21
jtokarchukjason00, I just read upwards, quite unsure. If the card is still reading I am reluctant to say it's the card. Perhaps you had a bad block in your FAT that unmount puked at? I'm just speculating13:21
BarkingFishjason00: Sorry, that should be ALT SysRq + U to remount R/O, not Alt SysRq + R13:23
BarkingFishanyway, gotta go, see you later.13:24
jason00jtokarchuk: the other curve ball is the fact I'm using 2 different partition types on 1 card and using them interchangably13:25
jason00jtokarchuk: I did so many recoveries and backups in the last day that mayb eI just borked it13:26
jtokarchukjason00, certainly possible, pain in the butt, though =[13:26
jason00jtokarchuk: I should DD it to a .tar.gz for backup purposes13:26
jtokarchukjason00,  yes you should, you could even then mount it as an image and mess with it if you os desire13:26
jtokarchukjason00, so*13:26
ShrekHello, how to change the interface language of Ubuntu 11.10? I want to use German and Portuguese, and possibly another one.13:27
Sidewinder1truepurple, If you're experiencing the same or similar issues in FF and Opera with flash, that indicates, at least a flash or more likely problem with the video-card/driver, for same. I don't think that I could be terribly helpful with either, as I said they just work, for me.13:27

truepurpleSidewinder1, but it isn't the case in midori, and it wasn't the case for a long time. Someone said once that it was a issue with a newer flash version, but how might I revert to the last version that worked then?13:30

jason00jtokarchuk: still failing to create ext3 over existing ext3. new partition table coming...13:32
=== sly is now known as Guest77190
jtokarchukjason00: back it up, blow the partitions away, force it to unmount, and try to start fresh. IF that doesn't work, for what the SD cards cost, it might cost you less to buy one than what you will put into it in your own labor13:33
jason00jtokarchuk: unable to create partition table. what the??????13:33
jason00jtokarchuk: I think I killed my sd card??13:34
jtokarchukjason00, it seems that way. how long have you had it?13:34
Sidewinder1truepurple, I'm not sure and this is probably horrible advice but, if it were me, I'd probably remove FF and reinstall with a previous version. cAUTION! That may screw up your system, I don't know but it sounds like you're somewhat desperate.13:34
jason00jtokarchuk: uh. 5 months or so?13:34
jtokarchukjason00, if you so wish, call the manufacturer and exercise your warranty, most of the people there have no idea what a partition is. so if you say "it doesnt work" they will believe you. However, the cost of the shipping to them will probably buy you a new card anyway13:35
truepurpleSidewinder1, reinstall flash with a previous version? Flash does not seem to be attached to any one particular browser13:35
Sidewinder1truepurple, It'll certainly kill your bookmarks/history unless you back them up.13:35

jtokarchukjason00, sorry I could not be of more help, got to run.13:36
jason00jtokarchuk: thanks13:36
Sidewinder1truepurple, No I meant remove Firefox and reinstall a previous version, one that worked for you, but the CAUTION, above still applies..13:36
truepurpleSidewinder1, reinstall a previous version of firefox? Its not firefox that is the issue here13:37
slakcphili am backing up some directories that have files over 150gb in them and getting real slow results with rsync13:37

Sidewinder1slakcphil, Not that I'm aware of; I don't think there any "rsync optimization" which speed it up.13:40

usc911Hey guys, im having some odd issues. I have a pretty new and decent spec asus laptop, over the last couple of days when every im doing anything even slightly cpu intensive ( am currently untarring) the cpu fan goes absolutely ballistic, I cant work out what would possibly be the issue, any thoughts/suggestions?14:07
smwhickleberryfun, really?14:07
smwhickleberryfun, that doesn't make sense14:07
smwhickleberryfun, you tried it?14:07
ikoniausc911: probably your cpu needs cool when it scales up while untarring14:07
usc911ikonia:but its never happened before and I used to failry hammer vmware14:08
Sidewinder1usc911, ikonia That was my thought, as well.14:08
hickleberryfunsmw, how so? no i havent tried it, but whenever you use the sudo command, you are ALWAYS prompted for your password unless you have entered it recently and your system is set to save the password for an amount of time within the span14:08
ikoniausc911: different types of use, vmware is more ram than cpu14:08
smwhickleberryfun, but this is a live cd14:08
usc911ah ok14:08
hickleberryfunsmw and gksudo for a graphical interface prompt14:08
smwhickleberryfun, it should work. The people who made the disk must have built in a way to obtain root14:09
ikoniausc911: look at it from a simple point of view, your cpu use goes up when you untar, = your cpu is more used, = your cpu is hotter, = turn on the fan14:09
agentgasmaskHi all. Can I delete the /home/user/.mozilla/firefox/profile/cache directory safely? Is it required?14:09
usc911ikinia:how about video (iplayer in particular) that also hammers the fan and hasn’t done previously14:09
hickleberryfunsmw i guess ill try it but it will probably be a waste of time- definitely appreciate the help though14:09
xanguasmw: there is no root password on ubuntu14:10
smwhickleberryfun, If I were making the disk I would setup sudo nopass. I am sure they did it.14:10

ikoniausc911: it sounds like your laptop may not have the best/most compatible apci interface, but it does work14:10
usc911ikonia: thanks14:10

xanguaFoulad: control+alt+t , cotrol+alt+F (1 to 6 )14:44
r4yhello. I was using Firefox 3.6 on Ubuntu 10.04.3 and add-ons will not pop up,so I upgraded to Firefox 8 but I still have the same problem, so I used the Software Center to download Chatzilla and I have seaMonkey running it so I could get here14:45
apwbdjpxangua, that latter isn't actually a terminal window14:45
ok2cqrGentoo64, No I have not. I'm not sure how to use autoconf.14:45
Sidewinder1Foulad, I knew one of the terminal gurus would know. :-)14:45
Gentoo64ok2cqr, it was that by default14:45
Foulad<apwbdjp> <xangua> thank you , what is keyboard shortcut to change keyboard language14:45
Gentoo64before you set static ip14:45
* Sidewinder1 Is definatly, one.. :-(14:45
gulzarr4y: so prob is that the addons are not working???14:45
Gentoo64ok2cqr, id ask in #ipv6 as theyd know more then in here14:46
xanguar4y: rename yout .mozilla directory to try a new profile and see if it fixes it14:46
r4yNo add-ons pop up, I will check again for the exact message14:46
ok2cqrGentoo64, but how to tell the ip address to eth0 interface? With ifconfig?14:46
ok2cqrGentoo64, Thank you, I'll try it.14:46
Gentoo64or network/interfaces14:46
ok2cqrI didn't have anything about ipv6 there14:46
Foulad what is keyboard shortcut to change keyboard language14:47
apwbdjpFoulad, http://www.wikihow.com/Change-Keyboard-Layout-in-Ubuntu, not sure if this is what you're looking for14:47
apwbdjp!repeat | Foulad14:47
ubottuFoulad: 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/14:47
Foulad<ubottu> thank yuo14:48
Foulad<apwbdjp> no , i have 2 languages on my ubuntu (arabic , english) if i would like to wirte on arabic i have to change it on top bar14:49
theadminFoulad: If you have multiple layouts installed, you will be able to configure the shortcut to switch it in "Keyboard".14:49
Foulad<apwbdjp> is there is way to change it with keyboard ?14:49
theadminFoulad: By default, if I recall right, it's Alt+Alt14:49
mboeruanyone here know kickseed, preseed, kickstart14:49

Sidewinder1Foulad, At least you had the where-with-all to enclose in "<>" so she wouldn't stick her (ubottu) tongue, out at you. :D14:49
mboeruubuntu uses a combination of kickstart with preseed, called preseed14:50

ubottuGuest43897: It's not technically our business, but we'd like to tell you that IRC'ing as root is a Very Bad Idea (tm). After all, doing anything as root when root is not needed is bad, and especially bad with software that connects to the Internet.14:50
r4yI don't know why it's not saying it now, but still nothing is poping up, but I looked under my history to find this as part of one of my searches firefox couldn't retrieve add-ons14:50
Foulad<theadmin> Alt+Alt not working for me , im trying to change my keyboard to arabic , they only way now to change it from top bar by mouse14:50
Gentoo64Foulad, why not set arabic as default?14:50
theadminFoulad: As I said, go to "Keyboard" in the settings center thingo, you'll be able to find the shortcuts for such stuff there (and change them too)14:51
theadminGentoo64: It's like with English and Russian - you need to switch because you can't type English with the Russian layout and vice versa14:51

Gentoo64can help, lol14:58
r4ythank you deej197614:59
vegabondhow can i use the command line to open an application14:59
Gentoo64vega-, type the app name14:59
apwbdjpvegabond, by typing the name of the application, and hitting enter14:59
deej1976vegabond: start a terminal and enter the name i.e. gedit15:00
Gentoo64try typing part of it and hitting tab15:00
Gentoo64some are weird names15:00
Gentoo64random e.g avidemux is avidemux_gtk15:00

apwbdjpGentoo64, even more twister: Ubuntu's disk utility: palimpsest15:00
Gentoo64yeah, lol15:00
Sidewinder1deej1976, I even tried ubuntu's sphinx-somethin'-or-other and couldn't get it configured properly, it's a speech to text program. If it'd worked, the floodbots would've set a permanent ban on my IP. ;-)15:01
Gentoo64not even tab can help you with that15:01
r4yIf you want to know what the name is for a program drag and drop it into the terminal then try omitting the rest. That usually works.15:01
Gentoo64r4y, dont work in all terminals/des.15:01
ok2cqrGentoo64, I just looked at dmesg and see eth0: no IPv6 routers present but ping6 to ipv6.google.com works15:01
Gentoo64bad practice imo15:01
Gentoo64ok2cqr, thats normall message15:01
deej1976Sidewinder1: Excellent wouldn't have to watch this terminal.15:02
apwbdjpr4y, Gentoo64 I remember an app that would give you the name of whatever window you clic on.. anyone know about that?15:02
Gentoo64:s not sure15:02
llutzapwbdjp: xwininfo15:03
apwbdjpllutz, I love you15:03
Sidewinder1deej1976, No, no; I'd still have to read the screen; just would've been able to speak (with no typos/spelling mistakes) and text would've been in my response window; just hit 'enter'.15:04
apwbdjpxprop seems to help with that too15:04
Gentoo64ok2cqr, keep a tail -f /var/log/messages (or similar) open see if it says anything when it cuts off15:04
Gentoo64or plain dmesg15:05
WicketUserhi , i tried to install mysql server and upgrade it but i got some error that i am not able to remove mysql server or install it again.. any suggestion?15:05

r4ySorry for flooding. I guess I should leave15:06
ok2cqrGentoo64, nothing was added15:06
Gentoo64so ipv4 still works fine when v6 cuts off?15:07
Sidewinder1r4y, I didn't think you were flooding..15:07
Gentoo64and only on one box, both have same net cards?15:07
WicketUserguys, i am new to ubuntu.. could u tell me how to uninstall a software completely?15:07
Gentoo64same router etc?15:07
ok2cqrGentoo64, yes, ipv4 is still working15:07
Gentoo64WicketUser, apt-get purge app15:07
r45c4lhello friends, actually i am having some strange problem that when i am trying to open some websites its saying may be my system is infected with some virus, so i have taken the o/p of netstat -an and pstree can any one help me to figure out the problem15:07
deej1976WicketUser: sudo apt-get purge [packagename]15:08
r45c4li am not that good with linux15:08
Gentoo64ok2cqr, hmm weird15:08
Gentoo64ok2cqr, paste /etc/network/interfaces?15:08
OerHeksWicketUser, normally stop the service before removal.15:08
Sidewinder1r4y, OIC, up above; everyone makes a mistake every now and then.. NP.15:08
Gentoo64ok2cqr, i probably cant help tho15:08
ok2cqrGentoo64, it seems that it iw working only if I leave ping6 ipv6.google.com running. After I terminate it, the connection is gone in a few seconds.15:08
r4yHmm, well, light bulb. I should backup .mozilla, then try un-installing ad-block then see if my problem with add-ons not popping up go away,so I need to go.15:09
Gentoo64r45c4l, its a stupid advert15:09
Gentoo64ignore it15:09
Gentoo64ok2cqr, ahh15:09
r45c4lbut Gentoo64 its really not allowing me to open couple of websites and asking me to fill stupid captchas15:09
Gentoo64ok2cqr, make sure ipv6 ping is enabled on ur box15:09
Gentoo64youll need it for a tunel15:10
Gentoo64or itl disconnect you15:10
r45c4lif u want i can upload  a screenshot too Gentoo6415:10
Gentoo64r45c4l, ok15:10
r4yTake care all. And thank you for the kind words Sidewinder115:10
Sidewinder1r4y, As an aside, I use adblock plus and have never has a problem with add-ons..15:10
ok2cqrGentoo64, I have native connection.15:10
Gentoo64oh ok15:10
BarbarianGood evening ladies and gentlemen15:10
r4yI have used ad-block a whole lot before without problems, so I don't what is going on15:10
zach_so I'm a newbie to irc... is there anyone that would be kind enough to walk me through it.... unless I figured it out already15:10
Gentoo64r45c4l, screenshot please15:11
r45c4lok 1 sec Gentoo64 till then here is th e OP of netstat -a and pstree http://pastebin.com/QqViiuEY15:11
Gentoo64netstat means nothing to me15:11
Gentoo64it could be anything15:11
Sidewinder1r4y, It can, at times, be a challenge, but I'm reasonably certain that you'll figger' it out.15:11
Barbarianr45c4l, because of the way linux works, any virus is probably confined to your browser. Try uninstalling and purging, then reinstalling it15:12
r4yisn't there an irc channel for zach, it is the freenode channel or something like that. I remember asking before15:12
Gentoo64Barbarian, that wont do anything15:12
=== enigmo is now known as enth
BarbarianGentoo64, no?15:12
Gentoo64you cant get viruses like on windows15:12
zach_ya r4y i think i screwed up the setup15:12
Gentoo64it wouldnt be confuned to the browser anyway15:12
Gentoo64imo it just wouldnt happen15:12
Gentoo64unless it was ie in wine (possibly)15:13
r4yI run chatzilla. It's great. It's an add-on for Firefox15:13
enthOpera has a pretty okay integrated irc client15:13
r4yYou can also get chatzilla through the Ubuntu Software Center15:13
BarbarianThats the way I've understood it, that individual applications can get compromised, but that never affects any other app or the operating system15:13
zach_cool thanks a bunch man15:14
r4yNo Problem15:14
Gentoo64Barbarian, nah. the whole thing about runnin "not" as root is so if anything bad does happen, the worst that can happen is a ruined /home15:14
Gentoo64not a ruined /15:14

Gentoo64r45c4l, ok that looks normal15:15
Gentoo64the site just wants you to fill in crap15:15
Gentoo64to proceed15:15

r45c4lyeah but these sites are normal sites Gentoo64 and Barbarian and this never happened before15:16
Gentoo64r45c4l, no idea. its not a virus tho15:16
r4yWow, what a great reason to have home protected with sudo, no?15:16
r45c4lits saying that may be some bot can be also there so is that possible ?15:16
Gentoo64it cant be15:16
dbristowLooks like the precise-preinstalled-desktop-armel+ac100.bootimg that's currently on cdimage.ubuntu.com fails the MD5SUM/SHA1SUM/SHA256SUM checksums15:16
Gentoo64r45c4l, then it wouldnt be /home15:16
dbristow12.04 alpha-115:16
Gentoo64r45c4l, as youd be running stuff as root, which is worse15:17
Barbarianr45c4l, have you tried filling that in and clicking next?15:17
dbristowEverywhere I have been able to download it from, it fails the checksum.15:17
Gentoo64r45c4l, you using proxy?15:17
