Frantic_ActionParsnip_: Hey! i dont know what exactly i did but i ran and reinstalled Ubuntu 11.10 and it seems to be i can run it now with out needing  the flash card plugged in,00:01
TA5KActionParsnip: I have another Notebook with G9300M same sadness.00:01

aBoundBoot option what?00:08
josh123a123some one here told me to add some boot option to get the installer to work00:09
ActionParsnip!bootoptions00:09
ubottuFor a list and explanation on some of the boot options, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions See also !nomodeset.00:09
alien2050meomic: did you try sudo apt-get remove --purge network-manager && sudo apt-get install network-manager00:09
meomicalien2050: no this not, but i did sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager stop and later start again - its same, also why to remove it - it works after reboot - just stops after some time passes00:10
=== SoulShadow is now known as Shadows`busy
alien2050meomic: just to ensure there is no lying config problem, that's why the --purge00:11

aBoundleontopod, http://en.kioskea.net/faq/1591-exe-is-not-a-valid-win32-application00:15
leontopodthanks, I will have a look00:16
alien2050leontopod: unetbootin binary is not sevnz.exe..... it should be unetbootin-windows-563.exe00:16
magicJI have a system that usually works - occasionally, like right now I have five jobs that should print and are not - lpstat shows them waiting - how can I kick lp to handle them and why is this happening00:16
ActionParsnipleontopod: did you MD5 test the ISO you downloaded?00:16
alien2050leontopod: sounds like you DLed malware00:16
alien2050unetbootin.sourceforge.net should be the site00:17
meomicalien2050: ok i did as you said, but still same - it does not react00:19
meomicrestarting intel wlan driver also didnt helped (sudo modprobe -r iwlagn and later same but w/o -r)00:20
alien2050meomic: hmmm.... that's weird... you may have to reboot or resort to more drastic measures like installing wicd; I've had my share of network-manager issues myself in the past. you can also remove it completely and manually configure your NIC through /etc/network/interfaces00:20
ActionParsnipleontopod: were you trying to extract the ISO by right clicking it?00:21
ActionParsnipleontopod: sounds like you are as sevnz.exe is part of 7zip for Windows...00:21
wrektjetwhats the syntax again for finding a PID? eg the process quake. i thought it was ps aux |grep guake but im making an error there00:23
Cristianhello people!00:23
alien2050leontopod: I think what you need to do is open unetbootin first and then select the ISO.... I think you're double-clicking the file and doesn't have any association for ISO or a corrupt 7zip install in M$W.00:23
rob__ps faux |grep quake ?00:24
ActionParsnipwrektjet: ps -ef | grep quake00:24

ActionParsnipleontopod: good, you don't00:29
leontopodI was just following instructions00:29
alien2050leontopod: nope00:29
leontopodit pops up by itself00:30
leontopodI rebooted00:30
leontopodran ccleaner, deleted and redownloaded unetbootin, and am running it again00:30
alien2050leontopod: forget about the popping up... just do it by yourself; open unetbootin, select image, select ISO00:30
leontopodoh wait00:30
ActionParsnipleontopod: try the 1 2 3 app from pendrive linux00:30
leontopodselect iso?00:30
alien2050leontopod: browse, then select your ISO file00:31
ActionParsnipleontopod: yes, point the app to the ISO you downloaded00:31
leontopodok, I am starting over again, the usb drive is empty (it says 64k in use), I am clicking on distribution and selecting a distribution and version, then I click OK, right?00:32
alien2050leontopod: depends if you DLed the ISO file00:32
Taboo_TongueN00b question: I want to install Ubuntu Studio, and have a 64-bit Intel processor. So do I select the latest i386 download, or the latest amd64?00:32
leontopodah, maybe I should download the iso separately00:32
Taboo_TongueIs the latest i386 optomized for a 64bit system?00:33
alien2050Taboo_Tongue: amd64 definitely00:33
* tMH is gone. nsf00:33
Taboo_TongueThanks alien2050 =)00:33
alien2050Taboo_Tongue: np00:34
leontopodI removed 7 zip from my system00:34

leontopodrebooting00:34
leontopodActionParsnip, that is what I am going to try next if this doesn't work00:34
alien2050leontopod: why reboot all the time ? :)00:34
leontopodbecause it is win 2k pro sp4?00:34
alien2050leontopod: ohhh..... you'll love linux! almost no more rebooting ;)00:34

leontopodthe weird thing is this worked the first time I tried it with kubuntu00:36
ActionParsnipalien2050: its the best they've released00:36
leontopodbut kubuntu doesn't like my netbook00:36
alien2050ActionParsnip: unfortunately, you're right...00:36
leontopodso I am going to try straight ubuntu00:36
ActionParsnipalien2050: that's what I meant00:36
acerimmerleontopod: try lubuntu00:36
ActionParsnipleontopod: both are great00:36
alien2050ActionParsnip: :)00:36
leontopodkubuntu did something weird:  I installed it on my netbook, so far so good, then firefox wouldn't install, so I got some help on #kubuntu and they said try changing to desktop view from netbook view00:37
leontopodthat worked, firefox installed then, then an icon popped up on the taskbar saying there were hundreds of updates, so I clicked on that and it started downloading updates00:38
leontopodthen, it got stuck at 52% saying "dpkg running"00:38
leontopodapparently dpkg crashed00:38
leontopodleaving my netbook in an undetermined state00:38
alien2050leontopod: just run it again, should work fine00:38
ActionParsnipleontopod: if you MD5 test the ISO you can reduce that00:38

alien2050leontopod: wow... talk about overkill :)00:40
kszkszevery 2nd reboot Wicd prompts me for password, however wireless network is connected anyway every time. I messed something with insserv. These files like ".depend.start" ".depend.boot", they had some default contents or they are updated by installing apps? should i reinstall Wicd+associated stuff, or fix that files?00:40
IceheartAlways so many people here...busy busy00:40
ActionParsnipleontopod: holding down the power button 5 secods will turn it off, no questions asked00:41
alien2050kszksz: could be something like .wicd in your home dir00:41
leontopodoh, didn't know that00:41
leontopodgood tip, thanks00:41
ActionParsnipleontopod: ATX standard ;)00:41
leontopodit's an acer aspire one btw00:41
kszkszalien2050: there is, but its empty. that 'every 2nd boot' part is interesting00:41
alien2050kszksz: mv it to another directory temporarily, re-enter your config in wicd, try it out00:42
ActionParsnipleontopod: did you MD5 test the ISO you transferred?00:42
alien2050kszksz: could be a racing issue with other services, but I have to admit it's still odd00:42

leontopoddoesn't unetbootin do that?00:43
leontopodI know about md500:43
kszkszalien2050: racing? all 'weird' stuff started happening after typing 'insserv'00:43
IceheartRandom question, how do I view what graphics card I have on my laptop? I remember there being a command but I can't remember what it was.00:43
leontopodlspci00:43
ActionParsnipleontopod: without testing it, you don't now if the file you are using is complete or consistent00:43
fmergesI have a problem with my ubuntu for some time already but it's quite annoying, I have maverick installed, and the issue is in X+Gnome, the issue is that i get regions of the desktop where the windows seem to overlap00:43
leontopodActionParsnip, ah, I thought unetbootin would do the test for me00:43
leontopodmy bad00:43
ActionParsnipIceheart: sudo lshw -C display00:43
ActionParsnipleontopod: not if you use your own ISO, you must do it yourself then00:44
fmergesexample i open the menu i close it and a region of it keeps on the screen, i have to open close and play with the menu to eventually get it away00:44
alien2050kszksz: do you change it's runlevel?00:44
alien2050kszksz: do = did00:44
leontopodI am going to try the Distribution option one more time00:44
IceheartThank you action.00:44

=== JamesMiddendorff is now known as riddlebox
kszkszalien2050: it prompts me only for password to enter 'wicd network manager', wifi is connected anyway even if I dont fill in the password. hmm did I? :P would reinstall solve this00:45
IceheartI noticed my laptop uses ati drivers, could have sworn it had an nvidia graphics card but probably just my immagination.00:45
IceheartYep, just my imagination. haha00:46
alien2050kszksz: it's possible that it would be in your keyring, which would explain it logging it automatically; or some WEP/WPA password manager running in the bg activated by ubuntu00:46
alien2050kszksz: so the info would be located in another .directory00:46

ubluntuwrektjet: use & after cmd00:47
kszkszalien2050: i have password and stuff filled in /etc/network/interfaces, I need Wicd only to reconnect if it gets down. Or I think I need it for it :)00:48
Neek0wrektjet: try hitting alt+f200:49
fmergesit's like regions of the screen freeze... any idea or workaround?00:49
ActionParsnipwrektjet: ALT+F2 is in Ubuntu still00:50
ActionParsnipfmerges: have you tested your RAM?00:50
Neek0wrektjet: or you can just add an & after your command in the terminal. that will run it in the background and allow the program to run after terminal is closed00:50
ActionParsnipNeek0: you need screen, adding amperand only backgrounds the commad, its parent is still the console, so closing it will close the app too00:51
fmergesActionParsnip: yes, ram is fine00:51
ActionParsnipfmerges: when did you last test it?00:51
fmergesActionParsnip: some months back, but im having this since i upgraded to maverick00:51
ActionParsnipfmerges: is it the same as all users? (make a fresh user to test if necessary)00:52
fmergesActionParsnip: going to check with a different user..00:52
fmergesActionParsnip: if it's just with my account what would be the solution?00:52
ActionParsnipfmerges: remove the corrupt config or tweaking00:52
Neek0ActionParsnip: your right. my bad00:53
fmergesActionParsnip: all gnome config?00:53
ActionParsnipfmerges: maybe, we'll see00:53
wrektjetNeek0, ActionParsnip the alt f2 is being weird its navigating me to the program within the dashboard thing (whatever its called) but the & sounds good ill try it00:55

nbros652I was here yesterday looking for a way to inhibit the screensaver, and since I found one, I decided to post it for posterity's sake... The following command can be run periodically in a loop to prevent the screen from locking: dbus-send --session --type=method_call --dest=org.gnome.ScreenSaver /org/gnome/ScreenSaver org.gnome.ScreenSaver.SimulateUserActivity00:59
Neek0wrektjet: yeah, i was wrong in that one. my bad00:59
wrektjetNeek0, its ok!01:00
Neek0wrektjet: you have to type screen, then hit enter. then it will go back to a prompt. then run your command and it will stay after close01:00

wart___hi.  this is a kind of odd quesiton, but if someone is running 11.10 can you tell me what version of powertop gets installed?01:37
wart___the reason being is that on gentoo the powertop i have (1.13) doesn't work with a thinkpad x220; but then i read a blog and this guy using ubuntu 11.10 has it working with x220.01:37
bastidrazorwart___: 1.97 it seems.. apt-cache policy powertop will tell you.01:37
wart___so i'm guessing there's a different version being used in ubuntu and i'd like to find out what one it is.01:37
roothorickwart___: apt-cache policy is telling me 1.97-201:38
wart___bastidrazor: thanks; gentoo uses 1.13 and masks 1.9701:38
wart___i'll try 1.9701:38
roothorickwart___: it's probably just ~keyword meaning they haven't fully tested it01:38
roothorick<--- former Gentooer01:38
wart___yeah; theres 1.97 and 1.98 and *9999 keyworded01:39
armadaformer Gentooer = luser01:39
roothorickI actually switched from gentoo to a combination of Debian servers and Ubuntu desktops/laptops because I was just very very tired of fixing broken crap all the time01:39
wart___armada: ten what is a non-former gentooer?  winning?01:40
wart___ehhe01:40
onelinererm, could you confirm that address? am getting 40401:40
onelinernvm01:40
leprechauarchlinux is a pretty good mix of gentoo slimness and binary package management01:40
armadaentooer is a Gentooer for life.01:40
armada*Gentooer01:41
roothorickarmada: hah, no. There's a way out. It involves being 100% DOWN for several days but you can get out, and with your data intact no less.01:41
onelinerso in the case of blendereducation this would have to be done by blender foundation right?01:41
roothorickgetting away from Linux however, hah, can't happen. You'll keep reaching for the terminal, forever. Of course, Windows is much the same way. That's why there's so many dualbooters out there.01:42
begindLinux is the fun of computing01:42

luckysmackim on ubuntu 11.10. I am getting internet access from a usb device (my phone via tethering on 4g). I have my xbox hooked up to my ethernet port. How can I setup an internet sharing so my xbox or whatever is plugged into the ethernet port can use the connection from my phone usb tethering connection. (or wireless)02:05
leprechauluckysmack, setup dhcp and enable packet forwarding02:07
luckysmackis there a guide available? im not 100% sure how to do that02:08
leprechauluckysmack, or bridge the phone usb dev and the ethernet port creating a little hub and let the xbox pull it's ip from the phone02:08
caesar__should be able to connect your xbox to the phone internet same way you would a wireless router02:08
leprechauthere is taht too ... there are quite a few android apps that let you use your phone as a wireless hotspot02:09
luckysmackmy xbox doesnt have the wireless adapter. not the newer xbox02:09
leprechauon iphones you have to jailbreak them first02:09
caesar__on android you have to root it for free wifi tether02:09
luckysmackyea i can do wireless hotspot. thats fine. I have an android thats rooted.02:09
caesar__luckysmack: you could purchase the for the older ones02:10
caesar__them*02:10
danny_so i got skype :D but uh the web cam show its upsidedown but in cheese webcam booth i am rightside up02:10
leprechauluckysmack, then get yourself a cheap wifi router that's supported by DHCP and configure it as a 'wireless bridge'02:10
danny_how do i fix this02:10
leprechauthat will do what you are wanting02:10
leprechauand is pretty simple02:10
leprechauthen just plug your xbox into that and let it connect wireless to your phone02:10
leprechauerr ... sorry not supported by DHCP ... meant dd-wrt02:10
leprechauwow that was a brain fart moment02:11
caesar__luckysmack: if you have a rooted android with wifi hotspot.. then just connect to it like you would a regular router02:11
luckysmackyea I dont know much about networking. heh.02:11
luckysmackoh ok02:11
caesar__does your xbox have wireless capabilities?02:11
chabiewine: /home/chabie/.wine is not owned by you.. there is some one that can help me?02:11

ubottuIf you want to share the internet connection of your Ubuntu machine with other machines in the network see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet/ConnectionSharing02:12
luckysmackyea but my xbox isnt wireless. its plugged into the ethernet on my computer. and my desktop is able to pickup wireless from my router or phone.02:12
danny_so um any  ideas ?02:12
tripelbHi I am "trying ubuntu" for a friends computer with a liveCD. I've checked the disk. The first time we booted up it didnt seem to understand the wireless (Dell Latitude D410) so I used ethernet. On reboot it complained about something and reported it as a Unity fail. NOW I am at a "loging window and .... I want to know how to login and IF I can get GNOME somehow. --- I vaguely recall something about username ubuntu passowrd "leave it bl02:12

chabiecan you tell the command for me?02:14
chabieyes i've..02:14
luckysmackhow much do those routers cost? last time I looked at frys or best buy they were about $60, in which case I could just get the actual xbox wireless adapter for that same price.02:14
tripelbOK I am using a liveCD on a dell and Unity failed. I got a loging screen and leaving it blank is working to login. (I'm a unity virgin and am awkward and unfamiliar with it.  Is there a way to get gnome.)02:14
linxehluckysmack: you buy things from frys ?02:14
caesar__luckysmack: check this out, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsJ-BqEsLEQ02:15
leprechauluckysmack, depends ... you can get em pretty cheap anymore ... especially the older G models02:15
dr_willisit should be somthing like..  'sudo chown -R .wine  YOURUSERNAME' (i think)02:15

armadaafter installing all files/packages does the "Confugiring Hardaware" stage.03:27
armadaubluntu: do you even run ubuntu? you'd be familiar with the install process, which you don't show it.03:27
ActionParsniparmada: yes, but did you upgrade ubiquity before kicking off the install?03:27
armadaActionParsnip: how??03:27
perysonubluntu, I should do these steps when I was on 11.10 oneiric? :P Instead of installing 10.04.3 ?03:27
ubluntuarmada: insult will get you very far.03:28
ActionParsniparmada: boot to liveUSB, then get a web connection and run:  sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install ubiquity03:28
ubluntuperyson: no if you are on 10.04 you can do them on 10.0403:28
ActionParsniparmada: you will then have the latest installer in the live environment, which may help03:28
armadainteresting03:29
perysonubluntu, I was on 11.10 but I did a format and installed 10.04 because 11.10 was very sluggish even in 2D mode. and I think it's because I didn't have any drivers installed.03:29
armadahow to upgrade ubiquitity in the LiveUSB??03:29
ActionParsniparmada: I just told you03:29

ActionParsnipFrantic_: is it not under sound and video?03:52
armadapangolin: yes, I do03:52
Frantic_]In Synaptic03:52
perysonubluntu: no because even on 10.04 it's not detected in hardware drivers.03:52

ubluntuperyson: but DID you try on 11.10 to see if it was03:52
perysonubluntu: NO03:53
peryson:)03:53
ActionParsnipFrantic_: so you don't see it in software centre?03:53

perysonActionParsnip: yes.04:28
ActionParsniph4ckm3: if you run:   sudo fdisk -l    do you see the partitions04:29
ubluntuperyson: yea but you didn't try to install the drivers dude. so try  to use 11.10 and install drivers with the gui. or come get support here :-)04:29

perysonActionParsnip, ubluntu, almoxarife, good night guys! Thanks for your time! :-) I know you're supporting 11.10 but am in the list with people who prefer 10.04 :D04:32
pnormansamrat: the sudo is only applying to the curl, not to the writing to the file. you don't need to pipe curl anyways, use curl -o mongo.tgz http://....04:32
ActionParsnipFrantic_: long click on the icon, you'll know when it's movable, then reposition it04:32

dr_willisnetgear makes a lot of things subcool04:53
subcoolI have it piggybacked off my fios router, but- when i disconnect the piggy back the router acts normal. WHen i plug in the piggy back- it acts very flacky.04:53
kasiihi all04:55
dr_willissubcool:  what is 'it'  you are talking about..04:55
EvilResistancedr_willis:  <subcool> anyone got a oldschool netgear? mines acting screwy04:55
subcoolWhen i have it piggyback'ed, manuevering through the settings pages, the pages sometimes dont establish, - but when i disconnect the network to the FIos router- all pages work perfectly find04:55
subcoolhaha04:56
subcoolty Evil_Evil_Monkey04:56
EvilResistancesubcool:  why do you need to have a netgear router piggybacking off of a fios router?04:56
subcoolops- EvilResistance04:56
EvilResistancethere's no need to have netgear equipment (especially another router) off of a FiOS router04:56
subcoolEvilResistance, because fios routers are screwy aswell. And i prefer wired connections04:56
EvilResistancesubcool:  FiOS routers come with 4 ethernet ports, unless they changed their standard routers04:56
subcoolim connecting like 4 computers that are right next to eachother.04:57
subcoolEvilResistance, its my setup- just go withit.04:57
EvilResistance5 if you include internet in04:57
EvilResistancesubcool:  i cant go with it, because its unfeasibly complex04:57
EvilResistancesubcool:  if i had such a setup...04:57
dr_willisset the router to switch mode perhaps04:57
subcoolunfeasilbly complex? its just a piggy back04:57
EvilResistancei'd have one cable from FiOS to a 5-port switch, then the 4 systems plugged into the other 4 spots on that switch04:57
subcooldr_willis, nah, i wont the network to be seperate04:58
EvilResistancevoila, instant net expansion04:58
subcoolwant*04:58
EvilResistancesubcool:  that's unfeasible, is what i'm trying to say, you wont get network connectivity in that manner04:58
EvilResistancejust because you cant have a router piggybacking off of another router whilst being in router mode04:58
dr_willishmm.. i thik ive done it that way.. but i set it up static ips04:59
subcoolI have network connectivity- its just that the router itself is acting screwy when navigating04:59
subcooldr_willis, i've done it before too, this isnt new to me.. i just dont get why its acting up04:59
dr_willisscrewy how.04:59
subcoolnavigating the menus on the netgear barely work. pages wont show, some will load and then wont save..05:00
subcoolbut its ONLY when the two are connected.05:00
dr_willisyou mean the netgear settings pages?05:00
subcoolonce i disconnect the piggyback, it works fine05:00

jameslordhzi need a shell utility that have many tabs in a window, so i can open windows for program, systemMonit, and remote, then i can find the working shell convinently05:06
cconyxrevI'm getting SSL errors: "Problem with the SSL CA cert (path? access rights?)"05:06

cconyxrevseems to me like maybe the certs aren't accessible by the user running the script05:06
cconyxrevwhat's the package that installs those certs?05:06
ja-barrcalligra is your best bet as alternative gh0zt, or check the wine db to check compability with running corel draw under wine05:06
dr_willisjameslordhz:  you  mean a 'terminal' application05:06
jameslordhzthe most important is that i can change the name of tab and window, with which i can locate the shell tab easily with boring navigating each tab in order to find the tab i want05:07

ShoogyI just installed 11.10 and dont want the new ui05:07
ja-barror just use screen jamelordhz... byobu is good option05:07

Shoogyhow do I do that05:07
ActionParsnipShoogy: install xfce4  and use that05:07
jameslordhzdr_willis i am using screen now, its nice when you connect remote host, and you should open lots of screen tab if you connect to lots of hosts05:08
Shoogywhere do I get that05:08
Shoogyis that a distro05:08
ActionParsnipShoogy: you'll need to log off, select xfce then log on05:08
ActionParsnipShoogy: no its a different desktop05:08
cconyxrevyay! a dpkg-reconfigure ca-certificates did the trick05:08
Shoogyso it is an addon05:08
Shoogywhere do I get that05:08
jameslordhzso you need a window named remote to include all the tab which are running screen program05:08
ActionParsnipShoogy: in a terminal run:  sudo apt-get udpate; sudo apt-get install xfce405:08
jameslordhzmaybe i should get the source code of Konsole, and modify it.05:09
gh0ztI'm windows user want to migrate to linux, I was always playing with coreldraw, what distribution fit with me? please05:09

ubottuUbuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel".

g[r]eekHi. My networking is not working. If i type ifconfig, I can see both wlan0 and eth0 details. However when I plug my laptop using a CAT5 cable into my router, I can't ping it, it says "Destination host unreachable". Also, my wireless light on my laptop is on, but I don't see any wireless networks on my connections (whereas there are meant to be several showing up). Yesterday this all worked fine and I really have no clue what's wrong. The router is working08:32

Also, none of my wireless connections are showing up on my list of available connections (there are meant to be 4). If I type 'ifconfig' I get all the standard output for eth0 and wlan0, and they're both configured correctly in /etc/networking/interfaces. Any idea what gives?08:45

StarminnSo... in Ubuntu 11.10 w/ Unity, Chromium and Firefox will not play YouTube videos. Only Opera will. Suggestions?08:52
Humbedoohstarminn, Gnash or Flash?08:52
Humbedoohas in, which flash player do you have installed (I'm assuming youtube still uses flash)08:53
StarminnOh. Yeah.08:54
Humbedoohif you're using Gnash, try removing it and installing the proprietary Flash plugin instead and see if it'll do the trick08:54
StarminnHumbedooh, Whatever's default. It use to work, now I don't know why it won't work all of a sudden. HTML5 YouTube works, but not Flash08:56
HumbedoohI believe Gnash is the default today08:57
Humbedoohand I've personally had nothing but trouble with it08:57
ketanhii Friends this is ketan from india.08:58
ts2Humbedooh: adobe flags is the default still08:58
ts2*flash08:58
Humbedoohwell then someone installed gnash on my system while I was sleeping :C08:59
StarminnHumbedooh, Just checked and I don't have Gnash installed. And besides, doesn't Chromium ship with its own version of Flash? I know it used to anyway08:59
ts2Humbedooh: gnash is in universe, so it's can't be default08:59
ts2Starminn: Google Chrome has its own version, not Chromium09:00
Starminnts2, Aha, I see.09:00
Starminnts2, I have the Adobe Flash Plugin for Mozilla installed, but not plain Flash -- would installing plain Flash be beneficial, then? It's just odd because I've not installed/removed anything and it stopped working09:01
sgo11hi, I have changed grub/plymouth/lightdm background image. everything works fine except the default purple ubuntu background color still appears for very little time such as 0.1 second somewhere. why? and how to remove that default ubuntu background color entirely? thanks.09:01
ts2Starminn: make sure you have flashplugin-installer installed, other than that flash issues are rather hard to fix09:01
Starminnts2, Yeah, that's the one I'm talking about that's already installed09:01

r4vnLjL, it shows error: root privilegies requared, something like this10:37
brahmanaI am running Ubuntu 10.04.1 (LTS) as a guest operating system in VMWare. The host OS is Windows 710:37
LjLr4vn: then start it with "sudo"10:37
__godhelpmeI'm having problems installing ubuntu from usb it find or mount from cdrom10:37
r4vnLjL, what is sudo?10:37
r4vnprogram?10:37
LjL!sudo | r4vn10:37
ubottur4vn: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo10:37
skypentllutz_ so anyone visiting that site is looking at their localhost, and if they don't have a /www they just see a default page?10:37
brahmanaEverything was fine when I shut down the system yesterday, but today the ubuntu guest is not able to connecte to the network.10:38
LjLr4vn: "sudo install.sh" will let you execute it as root.10:38
brahmanaIt just bails out. Where can I look for more information?10:38
llutz_skypent: basically yes, ask "TtoMIY@PRIVACYPOST.COM" why that is  or better think about why you mean to access that site10:38
skypentsomsip; llutz; nevermind, i can just go to the site through its ip.  thank you for the help!! you guys rock10:39
llutz_skypent: you cannot go to _that site_ through ip, because the ip is 127.0.0.110:39
skypentllutz_ it's a big riddle full of different stuff, people working on it.  i was just wondering why the main site redirected to my index.html.10:39
quiescensmm10:40
skypentllutz; the ip is http://75.119.203.244/; someone grabbed it before they did that localhost thing.10:40

r4vnLjL, sry, but i dont know how to use sudo :/10:45
LjLr4vn: err, i just told you, just type "sudo install.sh"10:45
dirghsudo basically gives you the right as a super-user10:45
r4vnLjL where to type?10:45
LjLr4vn: in the terminal.10:45
dirghyes10:45
dirghin the terminal10:45
dirghfollowed by your login password10:46
r4vnit shows: sudo: install.sh: command not found10:46
quiescensi was going to mention that wouldn't have worked10:46
LjLr4vn: you need to go to the directory where you downloaded install.sh first.10:46
LjLr4vn: anyway this is going to be very complicated i suspect, just installing that won't work according to the forums i'm reading.10:47
quiescensit still won't work because sudo isn't going to run something from the current directory without the part explicitly set10:47
__godhelpmedirgh, I can't install it says can't mount cd10:47
quiescenspath even10:47
dirghit would be best if you check the md5sum of the iso file10:48

r4vnhow to go to that directory?10:48
token-simonhi here10:49
LjLr4vn: "cd ~/Downloads" or whatever the relevant directory is10:49
LjLr4vn: but as quiescens says, you'll need to type something like "sudo bash install.sh" instead, my bad10:49
dirghI have never tried from a USB, but I believe it should have a similar set of instructions on ubuntu.com10:49
dirghespecially on how to make the USB10:49
dirghbrowse to the particular directory, then right-click and open a terminal10:50
__godhelpmedirgh, you would think but i can't find it and i did fallow the guide that they have on the download page10:51
dirghyou need to boot it from the USB, are you doing that?10:52
__godhelpmedirgh, yes10:52

dirghI need more details on the error10:53
dirghor what happens when you boot from that USB10:53
DragonSlaydirgh, just boot10:54
__godhelpmedirgh, during the install process when it goes to find and mount the cd drive to grab the files thats where it has the error10:54
dirghthe only thing I can think of is making the USB correctly, format it, and re-try it again maybe10:55
dirghit might be an issue with your USB, or the way you created it10:56
__godhelpmedirgh, it's not the way i created it i know that10:57

diverdudeHow do i remove a package which i compiled and installed using sudo make install?11:00
LjLdiverdude: sudo make uninstall, if they were so kind as to provide that option. otherwise, tough beans.11:02

ubottuПожалуйста наберите /join #ubuntu-ru для получения помощи на русском языке. | Pozhalujsta naberite /join #ubuntu-ru dlya polucheniya pomoshi na russkom yazyke.11:02
diverdudeLjL: i get: make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall'.  Stop.11:03
LjLdiverdude: then they didn't provide the option. you will need to find and remove the files manually. this is why sticking to packages is recommended.11:03
diverdudeLjL: problem is that ubuntu packages tend to be a bit older11:04
LjLdiverdude: which often means more stable. anyway next time, at least consider using "checkinstall"11:04
diverdudeLjL: i didnt know there was such an option...anyway its ruby...im sure there is some way of uninstalling11:05
LjLdiverdude: you installed ruby from source...? good luck.11:05
afidegnumhello good morning all, I have installed ssl-cert as directed on http://pkgs.org/ubuntu-11.10/ubuntu-main-i386/ssl-cert_1.0.28_all.deb.html but how do get the ssl keys?11:06
LjLdiverdude: installing things like programming languages and libraries like that is a very bad idea. often, packages in ubuntu depend on a specific version of them, and they will break with your manually installed ones.11:06
LjLdiverdude: what i would try doing is reinstall using checkinstall, and then use the output to find out what files to remove.11:07
afidegnumin fact, the ssl encryption key filepath, that is what I am being asked11:07
afidegnumwhere do I locate it ?11:07
diverdudeLjL: so i do sudo make checkinstall ?11:10
afidegnumany answer pls ?11:10
LjLdiverdude: no "sudo checkinstall"11:10

branantwoozly: ok, so killall [option] [process name]11:18
__godhelpmeljl, k will try11:18
LjLdiverdude: ok that just means you [also] have the Ubuntu package installed. what does "which ruby" say?11:18
diverdudeLjL: that says: /usr/local/bin/ruby11:19
diverdudeLjL: so i have both packs installed...hmm so i need to remove the 1.9.2 somehow11:21
LjLdiverdude: the 1.9.2 package is probably *not* installed at this point, but you still have the files. to make sure, type "dpkg -S /usr/local/bin/ruby", it should say it belongs to no package11:22
LjLdiverdude: right now i'm trying to find out how to list the files contained in a package, because i don't remember, short of extracting the package and seeing (which is a viable option but)11:22
LjLdiverdude: oh here we go, it's "dpkg --contents filename.deb"11:23
aminHey Babies !!!11:23
diverdude LjL: hmmm it says: dpkg: /usr/local/bin/ruby not found.11:23
diverdudeLjL: but the file is in that location when i ls it11:24
LjLdiverdude: that's ok, it's just saying that it cannot find a package to which it belongs11:24
diverdudeoh yes okay11:24
LjLdiverdude: now try the dpkg --contents command on the .deb file created. that will list all the files it contains, and then you can remove them11:24
diverdudeso..filename.deb is what ?11:24
diverdudeahh11:24

auronandacebabali: no worries :)13:01
magicJKent: get to the web site and look grc.com - it repairs disks - and it really does an amazing job - I have had many disks that have been damaged beyond repair supposedly that it has recovered13:02
KentWhen did I say the disk was broken?13:03
magicJKent: I acutually have an advert in the local college  that if everyone else sayds your drive needs to be replaced, bring it to me, if I fix it is $100 if not free.  Tyoicall make a few $100 per month13:03
KentCan someone kick magicJ for spam13:04
KentI said the disk was fine13:04
magicJKent: you said the data was inaccessible and that you thought that hardware did it13:04
KentThe files were corrupted after the system crashed13:04
KentThey were left with 0 bytes, so I'm trying to recover any deleted backups and autorecover files13:04
magicJKent: if you are suer that the files were corrupted I would agree with you - but how do you know that the disk sectors are not damaged13:05
KentExcel makes backups and deletes them regularly as normal operation. I'm hoping to find one of these backups13:05
KentI'm not going to pay for your mates program13:05
magicJKent: ok - good luck - if the data is important it is woth trying anything - I agree13:05
magicJKent: I could ask - why didn;t you have a backup, too13:06
leontopodso the new ubuntu 11.10 gui interface looks like it can run on a pad computer13:06

KentmagicJ, I do have backups, but not for the recently changed data13:06
cipherboyKent: might try testdisk.13:06
magicJllutz: 1) cupsenable did not help, 2) why would the thing have gone to that state anyway, 3) lpstat reports that the lp is accepting jobs13:07
KentUsing testdisk now, but I don't know if it's dumping whole files or just partial data and giving it a file name13:07

MooCow93I have never used or owned a "Smart TV", so I have no idea how they work... but I assume (and hope) that it's some kind of removable module on the back side.13:38

pangolinAnomie21: you formatted the drive?14:15
Anomie21pangolin: yes14:15
compdocAnomie21, you can use chown or run:  gksu nautilus14:15
pangolinAnomie21: ok close gparted14:15

MonkeyDustpangolin  actually, i don't get what Anomie21 wants14:16
MonkeyDustgood luck14:16
pangolinAnomie21: now open your file browser and try to create a folder on that drive14:16
Anomie21pangolin: It's greyed out14:16
compdocI guess Anomie21 cant see my posts14:17
Anomie21sorry compdoc I was messing about with gksu nautilus whilst talking to pangolin14:17
pangolinAnomie21: close your file browser, hit alt-F2 and type gksudo nautilus and then right click on the drive and check the permissions under properties14:18
Anomie21pangolin: There's no 'properties' when I right click the drive in gksudo nautilus14:18
pangolincompdoc: some help :)14:19
drussellkelemvor: hmm I'm puzzled, I can't see anything out of the ordinary there...14:19
kodenok MonkeyDust, I have two screens. In one I accidentally deleted a panel (we will call it monitor A). I have recreated the panel in monitor A. When I open a window monitor A the little tab button that can open and close that window displays on monitor B.14:20
Anomie21Only options I have are 'Open, Open In New Tab, Open In New Window, Add Bookmark, or Unmount'14:20
drussellkelemvor: I've passed the urls to a few people, will let you know if they think of anything14:20
compdocpangolin, I was the first to suggest checking permissions fot the mount folder, and I use Nautilus for that. so whats your problem?14:20
pangolincompdoc: he sees no "properties" when right clicking14:20
kodenhttp://b.4sm.biz/screenshots/clippings/773a68ef84c16baa1cfffb5c8fc873d099d0dfbd.png see where it says, "xchat: koden @ FreeN..." that tab button thing. Not quite sure what to call it MonkeyDust14:21
kelemvordrussell: I'm considering a clean install, but the thing is, I'd rather not, due to installed packages, configs and whatnot.14:21
blast007drussell: could running an fsck maybe help his issue?14:21
compdocso help him fix it - youre in charge now14:21
pangolincompdoc: who said I was in charge? also I asked you to help me...14:22
drussellblast007: maybe...14:22
drussellkelemvor: if you run "touch /forcefsck" and then reboot, when your machine boots up it will check the filesystem to ensure there is no corruption14:23
drussellkelemvor: I don't think that's the problem, but it shouldn't do any harm either14:24
kelemvorI ran SMART Data self test a little earlier, and that didn't report anything. I'll be back after a reboot14:25
blast007might take quite a while for a disk that large14:25
kelemvorblast007: I know. :(14:25
blast007could it be a rootkit?  I haven't encountered one (that I know of), so I'm not sure how "advanced" they are14:26
kelemvorwhatever it is, it's hiding quite well..14:26
blast007yeah14:26
blast007you had mentioned that 'ls' gave weird output?14:26

nixninedisk utility says its not partitioned.  But from mint, I actually managed to partition and install fedora 1615:29
gartraldiverdude: second suggestion is Bad Advice.15:29
diverdudei learned that the hard way15:29
diverdudegartral: its good advice15:29
gartraldiverdude: I have mplayer, vlc, and many other programs that are installed from source.15:29
kelemvordiverdude: I've never used repo when installing ruby. I wan't to easily switch versions if I have an old app that needs another ruby version15:29
nixnineok skel15:29
diverdudekelemvor: then at least bundle it in a deb pack first15:30
skelnixnine: do you know the device name? if so we can skip that step15:30
EvilResistancegartral:  actually is .jar.  what version of minecraft are you using that has the launcher as a ZIP?15:30
diverdudekelemvor: i have manually been sitting and removing ruby files because they dont make an uninstall program15:30
diverdudekelemvor: that was not fun15:30
diverdudekelemvor: and why...because gitorius uses older ruby version15:30
dariusPlaying minecraft is about 3fps on my regular server and about 1fpm on my tekkit server, even with optimine and all of the parameters you suggested.15:30
gartralEvilResistance: my launcher is from back in the 1.6 days.15:30
nixninedont know15:30
nixninewould that be /dev/sdb?15:31
skelnixnine: yeah thats a device name15:31
nomad__gartral, sorry it took so long, i did cd and then tried sudo grub-mkconfig again, but still says cannot find device15:31
gartraldarius: that's really odd. i mean, minecraft runs like absolute dogcrap on my comp but i'm on an over-sized netbook. you shouldn't have that issue15:31
nixninegot it in disk utility15:31
skelnixnine: so if you want to see if that has a good partition table, do sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdb15:32
skelnixnine: in a terminal15:32
gartralnomad__: something has changed. I haven't used GRUB in a few years. I'm sorry but I have no further advice15:32
kelemvordiverdude: I've never had that problem. It lacked an dependency once, so it botched installation, but I had no problem removing/replacing it15:32
dariusI have a redicoulously powerful computer, I can run call of duty and skyrim at the same time on multiple monitors with out even a little bit of studder, but I cannot play minecraft,15:32
skelnixnine: you should see any partitions you made when installing fedora on it, they'll have the type "linux" or "linux ext"15:32
nixninenothing happens with that command15:33

skelnixnine: what you put in /etc/udev/rules.d will overwrite the default stuff in /lib/udev when it boots16:11

skelsquaregoldfish: try http://wiki.dovecot.org/Debugging/Thunderbird ?18:56
Gentoo64daddysturg, i use openbox its very light18:56
diverdudeskel: i think ill just forget about the old for now...18:56
skeldiverdude: awesome :)18:56
Gentoo64daddysturg, because its minimal you can install whatever you want18:56
dr_willishelo_:  check the forums for your exact sound chipset and the forums perhaps.  'sound issues' can get very complex.18:56
Dualityso try and install from terminal, i'd first have to try without install right :)?18:56
diverdudeskel: gawd...now back to try and figuring out how to install gitorious18:56
daddysturgGentoo64: Right. razer-qt is a new DE based on QT, from what I hear. Weird, is openbox not in the main repo?18:56
Gentoo64Duality, i dont mean install from terminal, i mean leave a term open showing logs in real time view18:57
dr_willishelo_:  theres a few people in here at times with decent sound debuging experience.. but not me.18:57
skeldiverdude: you can always use something like gparted to remove the old ubuntu install and resize the partitions (do it from a livecd or something)18:57
Gentoo64Duality, that way you might be able to catch some error18:57
Sparky-UKskel: no upgrades or anything have been done, I manually manage updates as well so nothing should have been upgraded without me knowing. Machine was shutdown gracefully for preperation of a host upgrade, just didnt switch back on18:57
hatebhow do I remove bluetooth icon from system tray ?18:57
Gentoo64daddysturg, should be18:57

Sparky-UKskel: i've just fixed it, I removed a smbfs mount that I had, then it booted20:00
WhiteOwl-mubluntu, I don't know if you read my issue: wifi :D20:00
novid‎dr_willis: i run apt-get purge apache220:00
excelsiordr_willis: without the drivers?20:00
WhiteOwl-mI will probably try to virtualize it on a microsoft home server so I can use my wifi usb stick20:00
alien2050novid: try sudo apt-get remove --purge apache220:01
skelSparky-UK: heh weird. I didn't think the smb would be it because its net based and the local drive would always be recognized first20:01
ubluntuWhiteOwl-m: no way to just run a long wire to the room, wifi sucks for media servers of any kind.....20:01
skelSparky-UK: good to hear though :)20:01
novid‎alien2050: i test it , but there is something related apache220:01
WhiteOwl-myeah the long wire is not possible cause of the door. should be able to close it. the ethernet plug is in my roommates room20:01
alien2050novid: elaborate?20:01
WhiteOwl-mI was also thinking about PowerLine but there are too many unresolved issues and it would be cheaper to find a ubuntu-wifi-card I think20:01
bencchow can I check a package version in a specific repo?20:01
dvrcoderi need help: 6 ubuntu clients which authenticate with LDAP and mount their homes with NFS. we migrated from an ubuntu server (NFS, LDAP) to a Synology server with LDAP directory and NFS. All users have new UIDs, all files have been assigned the new proper owners. Now seemingly at random, people don't get permission to access their files most of the time.20:02
novid‎alien2050:   /etc/init.d/apache2 or a2enmod command20:02
Sparky-UKskel: what I am guessing the reason is due to an upgrade of the nas and dropping the authentication on the smbfs (as its on a dedicated network now)20:02
WhiteOwl-mor maybe there are extra-thin ethernet cables I do not know about :)20:02
excelsiordr_willis: at what point should I try to find the printer with the print manager utility? Only after installing the drivers?20:02
skelSparky-UK: ah ok20:02
alien2050novid: its just an init script, why is it so important that its removed?20:03
dr_willisexcelsior:  yes. even if you found the printer. wouldent make much sence to try it befor hand.. unless you just wanted to see IF it found it.20:03
ubluntuWhiteOwl-m: i'd see if you can work something out with a wire.20:03
novid‎alien2050:   because i cant install libapache2-svn20:03
ubluntuWhiteOwl-m: and why do you need to virtualize ubuntu in windows? ubuntu is awesome for a media server. you can always dualboot if need be20:03
alien2050novid: if its unlinked from /etc/rc.x then it's no issue...20:03
dr_willisexcelsior:  my network printer supports several differnt 'printing protocals' so it actually shows up like 6 differnt ways  when cups scans the network for it.20:03
excelsiordr_willis: I was having trouble finding it before, so I reset the network settings on the printer to factory, and it just found it.20:03
novid‎alien2050: i want to reinstall apache2 clean20:03
alien2050novid: ah! I see...20:03

WhiteOwl-mmy wifi stick is not compatible with ubuntu ;)20:04
WhiteOwl-mthat's why I was thinking about windows20:04
ubluntuget an intel one20:04
alien2050sudo apt-get install --reinstall apache2 ?20:04
novid‎alien2050:  K09apache2 -> ../init.d/apache220:04
WhiteOwl-many intel?20:04
ubluntuor use windows im sure you can run a media server from it. I guess :-)20:04
WhiteOwl-mI really don't wanna use windows, it's like the last resort..20:05
dr_willisexcelsior:  I really like my Wireless Brother laser Printer. :) worked great in Linux.  Now to take a Hammer to the lame 'canon' printer that is a total bear in linux..20:05
ubluntuWhiteOwl-m: i'd do some research do you need N?20:05
WhiteOwl-mlinux has more possibilities20:05
dr_willis'Linux has possibilities'  -> marketing   phrase...20:06
WhiteOwl-mno, my netgear router does support N but it also supports G and so on20:06
ubluntuWhiteOwl-m: I feel like pci cards are more reliable also20:06
WhiteOwl-myeah I read about that20:06
ubluntuespecially for networking20:06
WhiteOwl-mwas reading that Zyxel G-302 should be working20:06
ubluntuic well if it's cheap works and has ok reviews pick it up20:06
WhiteOwl-mand I didn't find a lot of troubleshoot threads about zyxel g-302 which seems positive :D20:06
alien2050WhiteOwl-m: if you have 20$ to spare, I had the same issue and I bought the perfect wifi-N usb adapter on newegg, flawless on U11.1020:06
ubluntunever heard of zyxel tho and i'm an intel man my self20:07
WhiteOwl-mnewegg?20:07
WhiteOwl-mUS/Europe?20:07
alien2050canada20:07
ubluntusee there you go WhiteOwl-m pick that one up :-D20:07
alien2050so US should be same price maybe even less20:07
WhiteOwl-mdo they ship to europe? big issue, otherwise I would pick up a penguin wifi :D20:07
WhiteOwl-mI'm in switzerland ;)20:07
ubluntuis that pci-express to support N ? do you have pci-e WhiteOwl-m20:07

WhiteOwl-mthanks for the hin alien205020:09
WhiteOwl-mhint20:09
alien2050I followed the reviews, they said it worked with ubuntu out-of-the-box , I tried like 5 adapters before this one (even pci ones); it's just the best20:09
WhiteOwl-msounds very good20:10
alien2050bandwidth is very good, never disconnects so there u go20:10
WhiteOwl-mu just plugged it in? what did you use for configuration? wpa-supplicant?20:11
alien2050no drivers necessary, just plug in, reboot and it says "wireless networks detected"20:11
WhiteOwl-mnice20:11
WhiteOwl-mthanks a lot man, will try to get it :)20:11

WhiteOwl-mthey only ship domestic it seems20:15
WhiteOwl-mamazon can't ship it too to switzerland.. damn20:17
dvrcoderis there a place to look up the default settings for nsswitch.conf and all the pam.d files in the default state, with no ldap or anything enabled?20:17
w30derpladee, how did you close down the gtk-window-decorator? edit something?20:17

b1tbktjordan: I'm trying to avoid having to put the livecd image within itself. I just want to the vm install process to get its packages from the livecd's repo.20:24
Jordan_Ub1tbkt: You'll have to be more clear about your end goal. I don't understand what you're trying to accomplish.20:25
almoxarifeanshrpr: thats interesting, i would look at mirroring the guests input-device/s confs in your user account20:25

almoxarifeanshrpr: i have not thought about it before, you are on 'ubuntu'?20:27

almoxarifeanshrpr: can you access the 'guest' home/folder structure?20:28
b1tbktboot live cd -> If desired, select 'Install'. This install process will run through the normal 'install-to-disk' process (using the preseed that I give it). For the 'late-command' option in preseed, I will point it at a script that builds a virtual machine (eg., using virt-install) using another preseed which fully automates the vm installation.....20:29
anshrpryou mean the Home directory, yes....20:29
almoxarifeanshrpr: from your user account, i dont mean login to 'guest'20:29
kasiihi all20:29
b1tbktI have come up with two ways to accomplish this...sort of...20:29
hatebhow do I remove bluetooth and accounts indicators ?20:29
almoxarifeanshrpr: i will assume yes you can20:30
anshrpralmoxarife : yes i can20:30
peterrushmm this is odd20:30
b1tbktmost likely candidate is to create a raw disk image with qemu-create, mount it and somehow point ubquity at it in noninteractive mode. then use virt install to create all of the vm metadata.20:31
almoxarifeanshrpr: i guess the next step is figuring where the confs reside, any ideas? Anyone?20:31

dr_willisexcelsior:  hmm. for my brother printer  drivers were included in some extra  file in the repos i think.20:34
dr_willisexcelsior: apt-cache search brother20:35
llutzdr_willis: unfortunately not for these brother models. those debs work but it is still ugly20:35
dr_willisllutz:  bummers. :) perhaps in next release they will get updated.20:35
dr_willisit pays to not buy cutting edge hardware20:35
llutzdr_willis: better to buy HP :)20:36
dr_willisMy brother was on sale. :) for $90 - replaceing my HP laserjet 6l that i had for 13+ yrs..20:37
BussDriverman, brother printers are awesome20:37
BussDriverproving great drivers for all OSes20:37
dr_willisits just a b/w laser. but it does what i need.20:37
llutzBussDriver: i would prefer they just push theyr ppds into the public20:38
llutzdr_willis: same here, bought a hl2250dn after my last laserjet 2200 died :(20:38
BussDriverjust curious - why do you need ppds when they have a whole linux driver suite?20:39
alapiexit20:39
llutzBussDriver: because i don't like to have 3rd party debs in the system just for printing20:39
BussDriverIt does so much more than just printing though20:40
HSarenaHi! I install ubuntu 11.10 on VMware, i update it, but it can't find my graphical drivers! how can i install this additional driver in my ubuntu????20:40
BussDriverplus, you don't need the package if all you want to do is print20:40
BussDriverbut I agree with your sentiment20:40
llutzBussDriver:  right, i also want to use the duplex-thingy, which wouldn't work with plain PCL-drvers20:41
dr_willisPPD's defind the printer specs in ways that cups inderstands. drivers I think provide other thangs :)20:41
HSarenaplz help me..20:41
BussDriverllutz: Mine lets you scan documents from the printer and send faxes, etc.20:41
dr_willisHSarena:  vmware emulates specific hardware, so im not sure what 'drivers' you would be needing20:42
