hassI have a weird problem with my Ubuntu installation.  Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.01:47
hassIt seems that Nautilus is running as root01:47
wingnut2626aYeah #ubuntu01:47
xanguahass: like in: it seems you are running nautilus as root¿¿01:47
hassthe root desktop is shown01:48
xanguahass: how did you¿ because it can't happen on it's own ;)01:48
hasswhen I open my home folder the icon is the standard folder icon instead of the little house icon01:48
hassI'm sure I did something, but I can't figure out what I did01:48
hassit has been this way for a while01:48
hassalso I have been having permission problems.  If I copy a file in Nautilus it sets the owner to root01:49
almoxarifehass: if you were asked for a password to start nautilus then i can see you being in root, or you are in the root account to begin with, otherwise no, it would not01:49
hassit does not ask for a password when I start the computer01:50
almoxarifehass: permission problems related to you playing with sudo/su/gksu etc?01:50

almoxarifehass: yes, more like01:50
hasswhen I open nautilus it asks for a password, even when I open my home folder01:51
almoxarifehass: that would do it01:51
hassbut why is the root desktop displayed?  And why is it opening my home folder as root?01:51
joebobjoeI need help making a Live USB. I've followed the instructions but the USB is not recognizable by OS X, and not bootable. It has an fdisk partion scheme and on Apple's website, a GUID scheme is required... :(01:52

almoxarifehass:  cause it opened as root01:52

soloquiemI need some help uninstalling ubuntu 11.1. I don't have a dual boot, just ubuntu. Any help would be greatly appreciated02:11
hassalmoxarife: could you explain what the log file tells you?02:11
almoxarifeNotJimCarrey: you have onboard sound as well?02:11
NotJimCarreyyeah, but it's disabled in bios02:12
anynicknamesoloquiem: what do you mean? How do you want to uninstall?02:12
almoxarifeNotJimCarrey: did you make conf changes anywhere?02:12
pangolinsoloquiem: put in the cd of whatever you want to install instead of ubuntu02:12
anynicknamesoloquiem: can't you just install whatever OS you intend on top of it?02:12

AlbireoXHi, is there a term for the design pattern of passing arguments to static methods for the static methods to do stuff? (Not factory as it doesn't create anything or singleton because it isn't an object)02:14
pangolinsoloquiem: when you boot your computer it should tell you what key to press to get into SETUP.02:14
anynicknamesoloquiem: when you boot your computer, try one of the F's (F2, F8 or F11 should Work), or Esc02:14
NotJimCarreyrestored original default.pa, but still the same error02:15
anynicknamesoloquiem: or as pangolin said, it should appear when you boot, but it's usually one of those02:15
almoxarifeNotJimCarrey: make a copy of the files you made changes to, save them in your home folder, and re-install 'pulseaudio' , you can save the files and remove pulseaudio before reboot, but install pulseaudio after reboot, got it?02:15
soloquiemanynickname: I will try that02:15
anynicknamesoloquiem: when you're in the BIOS settings, it's easy, just go to "boot order", and change it there02:15
kieppiehi all. I'm having trouble getting MPD to push ASLA audio out through my secondary sound card. SLSA to XBMC on my primary (HDMI) works fine02:17
soloquiemanynickname: is the number key specific for ubuntu, or the computer I'm using?02:17
anynicknamesoloquiem: the computer02:18
almoxarifekieppie: ask in #xbmc , someone will assist02:18
anynicknamesoloquiem: but as pangolin pointed out, it should appear when you boot (usually does, although I've seen cases where it doesn't, or it's just to fast)02:19
kieppiealmoxarife: my XBMC setup is OK in that regard, so my query's not really relevant there (alshough I have IR keymapping under kernel 3.0.x that I'm trying to work through002:19
almoxarifekieppie: suit yourself02:19
soloquiemanynickname: haven't seen it, restarting a couple times now02:19
kieppiealmoxarife: I'm already in the #XBMC channel..02:20
almoxarifekieppie: me too02:20
anynicknamesoloquiem: if I does not tell you which key it is, just try Esc and all of the function keys02:20
anynicknamesoloquiem: you can even try them all on the same boot, it should work too02:20
soloquiemanynickname: that worked, thanks02:22

MagusOTBwell, I do have it, it's in my rommate's folder on our fileserver. The question is why does it seemingly arbitrarily believe that it's finished the play queue and move on to that?02:30
aeon-ltdiggymydog: the default gui on ubuntu02:30
iggymydoghow do i change it?02:30
MagusOTBAlso, I find it annoying that there's no intuitive way to play an audio CD02:30

iggymydogso its quick02:31
aeon-ltdiggymydog: firstly install another Desktop Environment (for future ref 'DE') like xfce (xubuntu) lxde (lubuntu)02:31

GrymmoireHeGuru, using gconf-editor to reset all the configurations didn't fix the problem, the terminal still isn't being recognized as something that I should be able to alt-tab to or have in the launcher...03:28
HeGuruGrymmoire: that might not be due to gnome-terminal settings but due to window manager settings03:29
GrymmoireHow do I change those?03:30
Grymmoire(Still new to ubuntu, just installed it the other day)03:30
LinuxRulesWhy does ubuntu restrict root , yet sets /home 755?03:30
foxhoundzWhy is Linux so awesome?03:30
HeGuruGrymmoire: sorry can't help with that, could be a lot of things03:30
LinuxRulesand alow sudo to be root?03:30
anynicknamefoxhoundz: because it's made by awesome people03:31
GrymmoireDoes anyone here know how to change window manager settings03:31
GrymmoireHeGuru, well I know what started the problem03:31
LinuxRulesI meant why is it insecure?03:31
HeGuruLinuxRules: whats wrong with /home 755? What makes you think that insecure?03:32
GrymmoireI put the terminal in the launcher by default but then took it out right after, and then I started having these issues with the terminal03:32
LinuxRulesheguru do you know file permissions?03:32
HeGuruLinuxRules: yes I do03:32
LinuxRulesso read access for anyone is good?03:32
HeGuruLinuxRules: you need r and x on directories to be able to enter the folders03:33
LinuxRulesyea thats what 755 grants03:33
GrymmoireHm03:33
MrKeunerreading a directory means reading the list of files and directories in it03:34
anynicknameLinuxRules: you can have read access for all on /home, but your /home/username be accessible only to you, I believe03:34
LinuxRulesread access on /home for groups and other is not secure03:34
LinuxRulesI am meaning /home/*03:35
MrKeuneranynickname, each directory has its own read permissions03:35
=== gcunha__ is now known as GuilhermeCunha
LinuxRules755 is not safe03:35
LinuxRulesnot exploitable but can give enough away to make it exploitable03:36
MrKeuner755 for /home is not a problem, 755 for user's home is a problem03:36
anynicknameMrKeuner: right, that's where I was getting at, so it can not be a big deal, depending how one has the rest of the system set up03:36

LinuxRulesmrkeuner on servers yeah but not desktops03:38
Tony_i can see the wireless networks bu i cant connect to them, any ideas03:38
HeGuruLinuxRules: agreed, and this has been mentioned ubuntu guides with instructions to change this behaviour (have user readable only home folders)03:38
MrKeunerLinuxRules, on desktops too if you ahve a webserver on the desktop03:38
anynickname755 is rwxr-xr-x, right?03:40

hayloyeah do 700 or 710 depending on what you want03:54
vassagusi mean, crossover use a folder that points to a real directory on linux03:54
vassagusjust need to know where is it,03:54
IneedMyWowok i cant find nautilus or the folder im hunting at all03:54
IneedMyWowi used to have a browse c folder03:54
anynicknameejv and MrKeuner, found it: via man page 'ls'. "If the file or directory has extended security information, the permissions field printed by the -l option is followed by a '+' character.". This generally means the file is encumbered with access restrictions outside of the traditional Unix permissions - likely Access Control List (ACL).03:55
IneedMyWowsome wine thing i think03:55
vassagustry to use find03:55
LinuxRulesineedmywow open a terminal and type nautilus03:55
IneedMyWowk03:55
ejvIneedMyWow: stop being dense, the default gnome file manager *is* Nautilus, when you clicked on Places -> Location; it launched an instance of Nautilus03:55
IneedMyWowok did that now where is my c: folder that crossover uses?03:55
MrKeunerIneedMyWow, you have to reboot into windows to see that03:56
LinuxRulesc: folder thats win****03:56
IneedMyWowstop being dense? now thats not very useful ubuntu style love and help is it ya queer pants03:56
acerimmer...and it begins03:56
vassagusIneedMyWow, i think that the folder is in /home/user/03:56
xanguaIneedMyWow: then you sure know your virtual c directory is on .wine, to show .wine you need to press 'Control+h' on your home directory03:57
ejvsince when did this become #crossover ...03:57
* ejv sighs03:57
IneedMyWowim aware its windows but crossover access wow.exe on here where is that folder i need to edit the config file03:57
vassagusprobably something like .wine or .crossover03:57
LinuxRulesask win**** support03:57
vassagusopen a terminal, and use find03:57
IneedMyWowok03:57
haylojust open the windows files from nautilus- mount the drive it doesnt matter if it says C on it03:57
hayloyou will have more acess to the win files through nautilus than you have in windows probly lol03:58

I am beginner and want to know how to put together my python pieces for deployment in automated fashion. I do have packages like Apache2 httpd, httplib2, lxml etc to compile and install. I am absolutely beginner when it comes to build system (new to build terms like target dist etc)03:59
vassagusthat should return the path where the wow is store03:59
LinuxRuleswhy are you guys supporting someone to find to run in wine?04:00
IneedMyWowand how do i use find04:00
LinuxRuleswhen they eventually find it probbably wont run04:00
IneedMyWowcuz they are good people, unlike...04:00
vassagusIneedMyWow here is an example find / -name 'wow.exe' -print04:00
sonanbulofmaybe locate04:00
ejvlol @ vassagus04:00
ejvIneedMyWow: man find04:01
vassaguslol :D04:01
MrKeunerIneedMyWow, I am amazed people still try to help you04:01
IneedMyWowwhy cant i just search for it in nautilus?04:01
IneedMyWowok that got me a bunch of permission denied04:01
doc-saintlyI was using the disk manager to check the health of my Raid 5 array and I mistakenly clicked the "check" button and now it is "rebuilding" the array even though there was nothing wrong with it04:01
IneedMyWowdont worry nobody has helped me with nada04:01
doc-saintlycan I stop this safely somehow?04:01
hayloLinuxRules it is funny, but they are right thats the only place its called c04:02
vassagusIneedMyWow thats couse you are not root04:02
LinuxRulesif they dont know how to find files in Linux god help ,them wityh getting all the dll's without errors pointing them to those dll04:02
vassagusIneedMyWow try to do a find in your home folder04:02
IneedMyWowi did that and still nothing, i know its in here04:02
vassagusfind ./ -name 'wow.exe' -print04:02

jeniahello everyone04:06
sonanbulofhi04:06
jeniawhen i run sshd, it does not seem to listen to port 2204:06
ejvIneedMyWow: I recommend as a beginner, you concentrate on a dual-boot configuration, ubuntu on one partition or disk, windows on the other; this is your best avenue.04:06
hariomejv: Would you point to appropriate link you are mentioning. I am new to build automation therefore would need to understand how and why of things and terminology04:07
sonanbulofi recomend google04:07
neildomoHow do you know it's not listening on port 22?04:07
ejvhariom: just google gentoo portage04:07
jeniafor of all, the i try to connect with a client it says that the the connection was refured04:07
vassagusIneedMyWow, just saying, maybe you have to read a couple of books, before asking04:07
jeniafirst of all*04:07
jeniasecond, when i run fuser on the sshd process, it return nothing04:07
LinuxRulesjenia if the service is started whats the output of netstat -ln | grep 2204:07
jeniaone second04:08
neildomojenia     ps -ef |grep sshd      do you get output?04:08
ejvhariom, freebsd's software policy is another good example of automation, unix brother to portage04:08
jeniatcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:22              0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN04:08
jeniatcp6       0      0 :::22                   :::*                    LISTEN04:08
neildomojenia  firewall running?04:08
LinuxRulesits listening then have you tried a restart?04:09
neildomoselinux enabled, but not configured for sshd?04:09
jeniahow do i check if the firewall is running?04:09
ejvare you trying to ssh to your daemon as root, and you've denied root in your config?04:10
neildomo/sbin/iptables -L04:10
LinuxRulesjenia you have physical access to it then or was that netstat from you PC?04:10
jeniaits from my pc04:10
LinuxRulesok04:10
jeniai have physical access04:10
sonanbulof hariom look here http://www3.fh-swf.de/fbin/roth/download/prg3.howto_autoconfmake.pdf04:11
LinuxRulesjenia is this a dedicated or virtual server hosted some where else?04:11
LinuxRules^^ seen what you posted04:11
jeniathis is just my pc, and i want to be able to connect to it from elsewhere04:11
LinuxRulesthe failure will be at your router04:11
LinuxRulesthat will be blocking incoming (most of it any way)04:12
LinuxRulesor are you connecting on LAN?04:12
vassagusare you testing from the internet, or LAN?04:12
=== asrblr is now known as Guest93352
jeniabut i my router, i open port 22 for external and forwarded it to port 22 internal04:13
jeniawait, thats the problem.04:13
jeniafrom lan04:13
jeniathe external port will be what? 80?04:13
vassaguswhatever you want04:14
LinuxRulesjenia what is it you need just ssh?04:14
neildomoTo make things easy,  I'd use 22 on both sides.04:14
hariomsonanbulof: looking at it. Thanks04:14
neildomoLater you can change the Internet side to cut down on script kiddies.04:14
jeniayea, that what im using.04:14
LinuxRulesalways change default port if only to stop /var filling04:14
neildomoYou have two computers on your lan?04:15
LinuxRulesyou will get pwnd04:15
vassagusare you forwading to your LAN ip?04:15
jenia i want to start with ssh and see how it works. than ill use other program to transfer files over the la04:15
LinuxRulesjenia does ssh respond calling from a local session?04:15
LinuxRulesi.e ssh root@localhost04:16
neildomoLinuxRules   I was just going to suggest that!04:16
vassagusme 2, lol04:16
jeniayes it responded to a local session04:17
neildomoYou can add  '-v'  to be verbose04:17
LinuxRulesit usually fixes the prob 90%04:17
vassagusyes indeed04:17
LinuxRulessorry jenia its user error04:17
neildomojenia   so sshd is responding, at least locally04:17
LinuxRulesor your firewall04:17
geoffmccjenia: i also use port 22, however you will get alot of hack attempts on your ssh, so i would suggest using something like fail2ban to protect your box04:18
LinuxRulessorry04:18
jeniacan you tell me, how do i find out what my name is on the network? like whats the name of the computer?04:18
vassagusconnect to your ip04:18
LinuxRuleshostname04:18
LinuxRuleswhoami04:18
vassagussometimes hostname dont resolve on lan04:19
LinuxRuleshostname dont resolve its whats set on the server04:19
vassagusbut i think that he is trying to conect to a pc that is locally on his lan04:19
LinuxRuleswill need to use IP then04:20
jeniaokay i did hostname and it printed it04:20
LinuxRuleshostname wont help04:20
htmlAPU supported in the kernel Uubntu?04:20
jeniawhat is it then?04:20
vassagusjenia use /sbin/ifconfig to find the ip04:20
vassagusthen connect using the IP not name04:21
sonanbulofcat /etc/hosts04:21
overcluckerhostname will be useless from a remote system04:21
LinuxRulesjenia well unless you know the IP of the box you want to connect6 to you will need to can the IP range of your network to find it04:21
LinuxRules*scan04:22
overcluckeryou can add the hostname to your hosts file04:22
LinuxRulesnot with out knowing the IP they cant!04:22
geoffmccjenia: also if your trying to connect locally, i would suggest assigning a static ip to server if you havent04:22

FloodBot1Madgunner: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.04:24
sonanbulofhi04:24
Madgunnerits about windows 804:24
h00kMadgunner: this isn't the place04:24
michaelgamblei installed zentyal, and it looks like its a paired down version of ubuntu server running lxde04:24
h00kubottu: ot | Madgunner04:24

LinuxRulesnmap 192.168.0./24 -n -sn -sP will usually pick up servers on your network unless your IP range is different04:24
vassagusLinuxRules, thanks thats very usefull to me04:25
besogonMy computer is in a domain. The problem is that I have to unblock SAMBA printer every day to print. Is it possible to unblock forever?04:25
michaelgamblemy challenge is i compiled and installed an app the same way i have four times today on lubuntu and ubuntu.. but for some reason this flavour the app won't show up in the task bar and i think its cause they have some really crappy peered down task bar? is that possible? and if so is their a way to fix / upgrade the task bar?04:26
sonanbulofMadgunner i already boycott windows, don't need to boycot somthing that i dont use or maybe dead by itself04:26
telloneWhat does, basename: extra operand `3' mean?04:26
vassagusbesogon you should log your box into the domain04:26
stersanyone know of a good chan to talk about dpkg?04:27
LinuxRules<michaelgamble> its because your using different desktops04:27
michaelgamblebut i had it working on lxde from lubuntu04:27
michaelgamblethis is also a variant of lxde04:27
michaelgambleit just seems to have a worse taskbar04:27
chowdermichaelgamble: what is the name of the taskbar application you are using? As far as I know you need to write a .desktop file. These files are able to be read by menus that conform to the freedesktop standards. Basically .desktop file = nice menu icon. Also did you get any errors while you compiled the application?04:27
michaelgambledo i have any options?04:27
vassagusbesogon you must configure samba to ldap configuration or ad, research about that04:27
michaelgambleno errors compiling the app04:28
LinuxRulestheres no reason you cant ask about dpkg here04:28
michaelgambleeverything looked gravy04:28
michaelgamblealso the config wizard of the app worked as normal04:28
sonanbulofruntime error or warnings?04:28
michaelgamblenope04:28
LinuxRulesit wont be the compiling it will be the differencies with desktops04:29
michaelgamblei think its running to be honest (my hunch) i just think this desktop isn't supporting displaying the icon in the taskbar04:29
sonanbulofsrtange, maybe the taskbar is buggy (or uses other ways to handle windows list)04:29
michaelgambleis it hard to install a different desktop?04:29
LinuxRulesthats what I was trying to tell ya :)04:29
chowdermichaelgamble: what taskbar are you talking about? Unity? I'm still pretty sure that you need to write a .desktop file.04:29
michaelgamblei installed zentyal for easy fileshare management04:30
mebigfatguy_yup need a foo.desktop file04:30
michaelgambleso whats my best bet here04:30
michaelgamblerepaire or replace?04:30
LinuxRulesno installing a new desktop or installing anything isnt hard unless you dont know how to use bash04:31
LinuxRulesnew gui only ^^04:31
michaelgamblethats cool i got a pretty good hang of bash, and point me to the right tut from google and I'm a happy camper04:31
besogonvassagus: Now I'm working with user who is not participate in domain. BUt samba is tuned to log in to domain. I write  usermap file which has string (rak = VSCC/rak) where rak is my ubuntu user. hope it would be enough04:32
michaelgambleso needs a replace04:32
LinuxRules<michaelgamble> so what you running now?04:32
chowdermichaelgamble: just write a .desktop file for your application. Its not that hard.04:32
besogonbut it's not04:32
michaelgamblelet me google how to do that :)04:32
sonanbulofyes google rules04:32
LinuxRuleswhats .desktop gonna fix he wants to change his desktop shell04:33
besogonvassagus: moreover samba is connected to the domain correctly. ubuntu doesn't remember my password for the printer04:33
LinuxRulesi.e kde to gnome04:33
besogon:(04:33
michaelgamble:) conflicting perspectives huh04:34
chowderLinuxRules: well I mentioned it because he seemed to want to get an icon on his taskbar. Now about changing desktop shells that's a different topic.04:34
nixninehey guys, how can i tell if my computer is bluetooth capable?04:34

sonanbulofanyone with version control knowledge?04:36
nivyaji guess i need to install some drivers- but i don't know how or where?04:36
michaelgamblemy app uses libindicator04:36
chowdersonanbulof: I have a bit of experience with git, svn, and cvs.04:36
vassagusbesogon can you create a user on AD, and added to the printer,04:37
vassagusand replicate that user on the box04:37
nixnineno way to check in terminal?04:37
gh0striderhello everyone, i have a usb gps device that has been assigned to /dev/ttyUSB0, and when i run gpsd i check the output by running "cat /dev/ttyUSB0" and it used to show me readable text with long/lat numbers, now it shows me just gibberish and non readable text, is there anyway to change it back so readable text?04:38
sonanbulofi never used any version control but i feel that i need for future crossplatform development only for myself, wich is the best(easy to mantain, and deploy) solution?04:38
gh0strideri really need some help changing it back, this is for a project for school and i am going to be in a heap of trouble if i can't figure this out...04:38
sonanbulofchowder?04:39
vassagusgh0strider maybe its the device config. Protocol maybe its on binary.04:39
besogonvassagus: no I'm participate in the domain but have no rules to change the domain... I'm reading in the Samba Official  web documents. Think I should ad something into my smb.conf04:39
chowdersonanbulof: sorry, multiple servers in my chat client04:40
mebigfatguy_sonanbulof, i'm partial git w/github04:40
chowdersonanbulof: I find that git is pretty good04:40
=== Axlin is now known as Axlin^
chowdersonanbulof: sourceforge uses git as its default. I was working on a network manager called QDnet but I'm not on the team anymore. I don't really have a preference for version control. I just use what's agreed upon.04:41
sonanbulofsorry for buggin you, git it's fine for only one coder?04:41
=== Axlin_ is now known as Axlin
mebigfatguy_sonanbulof, sure04:41
vassagusbesogon i was thinking about it. If you find a solution, i really appreciate if you share it.04:41
mebigfatguy_wouldn't be very good for multiple coders if it wasn't good for 104:41
gh0stridervassagus: i am running gpsd with these options "gpsd /dev/ttyUSB0 -b -n" and for some reason it just started printing out gibberish when i do this command "cat /dev/ttyUSB0" and i really need to change it back it is so important to me...04:41
sonanbulofthanks, i look only for git04:41
StepNjumpAnybody familiar with the /dev/dsp file in the pulseAudio server?04:42
mebigfatguy_sonanbulof, look at github.com while you are at it... really nice04:42
chowdersonanbulof: well any kind of version control can be used by just one person. Its a great way to keep your code and revisions organized.04:42
vassagusgh0strider you said, that your device was working normally earlier04:42
besogonvassagus: lpadmin command should help as they advice. gonna try it04:42
gh0stridervassagus: yes it just started printing this non readable text today, i am not sure what caused it...04:43
vassagusgh0strider have you tried to reset the device to factory defaults,04:44
gh0stridervassagus: i think it happened when i disconnected the usb gps device from my guest os (ubuntu vmware player) and then i connected it back to my guest linux os...04:44
gh0stridervassagus: how can i reset the gps devices back to its defaults...04:45
gh0strider?04:45
sonanbulofi'm worried about changes in time and regresions from one platform to another (sorry for my english) and cant recover old versions code (i'm using OSX TimeMachine for that but i dont trust on it for this task)04:45
dagerikHow can I grep a binary file for only ascii values? I only want to get words and sentences and such.04:45
mebigfatguy_dagerik, you are looking for specific words, or just looking for ascii of any form04:45
dagerikmebigfatguy_: Any form.04:46
vassagusgh0strider it depends of your device, did you tried to read from your host OS04:46
gh0strideri have a globalsat bu-35304:46
sonanbulofthanks chowder and mebigfatguy for the help i look for git04:47
chowdersonanbulof: any time and good luck04:48
vassagusgh0strider be aware that factory reset will clear custom configurations on your device,04:49
sonanbulofbye04:49
gh0strideri am really scared because my grade is depending on this project and i need to fix this issue and find out how to change it back to readable text...04:49
dagerikgh0strider: What is the problem?04:49

maginotfirst, are your sure its your device?04:56
maginotsecond it may be not human readable04:56
maginotuse dmesg first04:57
vassagusgh0strider look the device's manual for factory defaults04:57
gh0striderdmesg is not going to tell me why its printing non readable text04:57
gh0strideri thought maybe it was a baudrate issue but i don't think so because my gps device is running at the right baud rate...04:57
gh0striderbrb04:57
maginotof course not, but you must first guarantee that its your gps device04:58
Oermaybe GPS is down for the moment04:58
maginotif you are doing to do a cat on the device baudrate will not apply, actually cat will not work as a terminal reader04:59

haldollHi everyone, I'm new to Ubuntu and I've figured out how to load stock applications, but if one has downloaded drivers from, say "creative" for linux, what is the best way to install the drivers?05:01
maginotusually you recompile the kernel with right support or download the modules and build'em05:03
haldollmaginot, could you be more specific05:03
vassagusgh0strider try to changed your device from binary to nmea ascii05:03
haldollI'm sorry, new at this thing and don't know specifically what to do, sorry05:04
vassagusgh0strider gpsctl -f -n /dev/ttyUSB005:04
Oerhaldoll what drivers ? sound should work OOTB05:04
haldollI'm just saying "creative" as the sound drivers as an example, but when I down load the drivers, I can "extract" them, but don't know how to get it into the operating system after that05:05

haldollsimply / it was it says05:18
maginotmichaelgamble, did you had a server install before? Why are you doing that anyway05:18
michaelgamblestupid mac autocorrect built into the OS now05:19
haldollsorry, I don't mean to be dumb, but I'm really knew at this....05:19
firstlastjust upgraded to 11.10 and I wish to change the default driver form radeon to fglrx to use all 3 of my monitors05:19
michaelgambleyeah installed zentyal for the filesharing management05:19
firstlastbeen trying a variety of things, but X simply won't start05:19
maginothaldoll, what you mean about / ? did you save in the root of the system or under some folder in you home folder?05:19
firstlasthow do i replace the default radeon driver with fglrx?05:19
michaelgamblewhich ran lxde but not properly configured to run an app that i wanted05:19
haylofirstlast did you install fglrx through "additional drivers"05:19
maginothaldoll, did you downloaded this file with firefox or what?05:19
gh0striderokay so when i went on my other linux distro and did "cat /dev/ttyUSB0" it printed gibberish, non readable text which means that it is an issue with my gps device, so does anyone here have any idea on how i can change my gps device to its default settings in linux?05:20
michaelgambleso i want the server but a different desktop05:20
haldollyes, firefox05:20
gh0strideror will i have to do this in windows?05:20
nitinabscott951: you can either use the fn-button combo that comes on most keyboards, it must be a key with touchpad crossed out, or you can go change your settings in the System Settings>Mouse and Touchpad settings05:20
haldollthen it asked if I wanted to open it with the archive manager and I said yes.05:20
gh0strideri really need some help on this...like i said my grade depends on this...05:20
maginothaldoll, so? isnt there "Save as ?" option so you can save it under you desktop or in the Downloads folder (I think its this the default option)05:20
gh0stridermy entire grade...05:20
maginotok05:20
maginotyou said yes, and extracted the files to some place05:21
scott951nitinab: thanks05:21
maginothaldoll, I would do everything from command line05:22
maginotactually you will need it05:22
haldollI did, say download section, but then how do I install it?05:22
maginotif you give me  the path where for the file will be much easier to help you05:22
gh0strideranyone have any ideas on how to restore a usb gps to default settings?05:23
gh0striderif i can't figure this out i am in big trouble...05:23
firstlastanyone? :(05:23
haldollwell, when I look for it in "DASH" it is in the downloads section05:23
haylogh0strider, i can tell you that the device should just be a file to linux. do ls -la in the directory that contains your device. and search for the related config files in nautilus perhaps you could get rid of the stuff that is interfering with your "default settings"05:23
pangolingh0strider: if you have the option of doing it in Windows that is what you should do to not compromise your grade. figure out later what the problem is and try to get it fixed.05:24
maginothaldoll, do me a favor would ya05:24
maginothaldoll, open the gnome-terminal05:24
maginothaldoll, like alt+f2 and type gnome-terminal and hit enter05:24
hayloyes i have virtualbox installed in case i need windows for class gh0strider05:24
haldollthere05:25
maginothaldoll, ok, no what is the name of the file you said before?05:25
haylodid you get your thorzine haldol?05:25
haldollit is in a subdirectory called "xfidrv_linux_public_us_1.0005:26
haldollit is in the downloads subdirectly when I look for it in DASH05:26
maginothaldoll, type in the console:  find ~ | grep xfidrv05:26
gh0strideri don't know what to do and i am freaking out...05:26
maginothaldoll, pastebin the results05:26

gh0strideri don't know how to reset back to its default state (my gps device)05:27
maginotgh0strider, I tried to help you, but since you are freaking out you didnt listened anything05:27
haylodid you search for "gps" in nautilus under file system gh0strider ?05:27
pangolingh0strider: setting it back to default would be done in the devices settings menu05:28
haylolol yeah you make a great claim for help but dont seem to be trying anything05:28
nitinabi just installed tracker, but the indexing is not getting done, the tracker-store component is running, but nothing else. how can i start the indexing ?05:28
haldollI did, and it just gave me "no results" and went back to the origin again05:28
haldollsorry05:28
gh0striderthe gps goes to /dev/ttyUSB0 and there is nothing to list its not a directory...05:28
haldollI'm really trying05:28
wingless2434I've Googled about GVFS, but haven't found much useful info.  In one sentence, can someone sum up why I, a normal desktop end-user, would want GVFS on my system?  as far as I can tell it only exists to frustrate commands that fail to read it05:28
maginothaldoll, not exactly? are you logged as root??05:28
gh0striderhaylo: i have tried many things05:28
gh0stridermany things05:28
haylook what is the utility or app that controls the device?05:29
maginotgh0strider, you tried many things wrong. What you want to do, read the output? proccess it? Use some application?05:29
haldollI think so as it lists my name as "haldoll@haldoll:~s05:29
wingless2434case in point: the .gvfs file in my home directory: wtf is it and why should i want it?05:30
nitinabwingless2434: why do you need gvfs for ?05:30
almoxarifewingless2434: you would use gvfs if you kept a mirror of a remote drive locally, .gvfs would be the place where it sat05:30
maginothaldoll, do this instead:  find ~ | grep oss05:30
wingless2434almoxarife, nitinab, is it some kind of network file system protocol?05:30
haldollk give me a sec05:30
almoxarifewingless2434: long story short, you cant get rid of it, nautilus depends on it,05:31
haldollit gave me the following response....  /home/haldoll/.cache/software-center/icons/sc-agent-crossover-pro.png05:31
haldoll/home/haldoll/.cache/software-center/icons/sc-agent-crossover-standard.png05:31
haldoll/home/haldoll/.cache/software-center/icons/sc-agent-crossover-games.png05:31
nitinabyes wingless2434 ... when you connect to anything like sftp, ftp, or smb, a its mounted under .gvfs05:31
maginothaldoll, use pastebin, and Im looking for the path to the oss file you downloaded earlier05:32
gh0strideri am trying to see how to reset this usb gps device back to its original factory settings but i can't find a good link with instructions on how to reset a bu-353 gps device05:32
maginot!pastebin05:32
wingless2434almoxarife, nitinab: I suppose that's useful.  But why is it integral to GNOME?  Seems really weird to be integrated into the GUI layer...05:32
maginotgh0strider, do you have its model?05:32
haldollnot sure what "pastebin" is, sorry05:32
maginot!pastebin05:32

almoxarifewingless2434: if you can pull nautilus from gnome you wont have gvfs anymore, you wont have nautilus either05:33
nitinabwingless2434: some later programs need it , or depend on it . so just ignore it05:33
haldollpastebin: command not found05:33
haylopastebin is a thing you learn to use real quick on irc05:33
haylolook it up it is self expanatory05:33
almoxarifewingless2434: why the fixation on gvfs?05:33
nitinablol @haldoll05:33
wingless2434can you use this GVFS stuff without using nautilus...? e.g. if i were to log into my machine remotely via ssh and didn't start up a windows session05:33
maginothaldoll, pastebin is a site, where you post the text, like you can post many lines >> paste.ubuntu.com05:33
almoxarifewingless2434: yes05:33
haylopastebin is a website05:33
maginothaldoll, hey, I have a way better ideia05:34
haldollgot it sorry, like I said i'm new to this05:34
maginothaldoll, go to the gnome-terminal05:34
haldollk05:34
haldollthere05:34
wingless2434almoxarife, it's just puzzled me and i haven't been able to understand it from preliminary googling.  where can i find more info on the topic?05:34
maginothaldoll, type: mkdir A && cd A05:34
=== robert__ is now known as CyFus
wingless2434almoxarife, I don't undersatnd why something like GVFS would be wanted if we already have NFS05:35
CyFuscan anyone tell me where menu applets are stored?05:35
haylothey are stored all over the place i think05:35
haldolldone05:35
maginothaldoll, what is the link from the file you downloaded?05:35
almoxarifewingless2434: you are looking at gvfs with out a 'use' for it, you got a networked house? more than one pc ?05:35
hayloif you look at the properties you can see the file path to their execution command05:36
CyFusi cant find the one for sound control05:36

wingless2434almoxarife, sorry, important phone call came in.  I'm on a one PC home system, so I have no need to network stuff right now.05:40
wingless2434almoxarife, I think that's probably teh issue - i don't have the problems it's trying to fix, but i'm still curious05:41
FluxDHi, what is the easiest way to start a pure compiz session without unity launcher, I dont want to use gnome fallback or gnome 3.05:41
almoxarifewingless2434: have a network outside the home you want to connect to?05:42
nitinabhow can i force start it to start indexing05:42
pangolinnitinab: start what?05:43
wingless2434almoxarife, i don't, no05:43
almoxarifewingless2434: stop fixating?05:44
guest829385Greetings! I bought and installed ddr3 204 pin ram in a netbook. It won't boot, and it's failing as if there were no ram in there at all. There's no further comaptability issue, right? Since it fits the socket, ddr3 204 pin should work yes?05:44
wingless2434almoxarife, probably the best solution for now.  i'll revisit it later if i need to.  thanks!05:44
nitinabthe tracker daemon that does the actual indexing pangolin05:44
pangolinnitinab: sudo updatedb05:45
nitinabpangolin: we aren't talking about the updatedb-locate combo but the tracker-search tool05:46
almoxarifenitinab: you should have three processes associated with tracker running, all of them user processess05:47
pangolinnitinab: try man tracker05:47
almoxarifenitinab: look at system monitor05:48
nitinabi did that pangolin , it says the indexing tool tracker-miner-fs should be started at login automatically05:48
pangolinprobably is. install tracker-gui05:48
nitinabbut all i have in the process list is tracker-store... which is the hub to serve queries but not the indexer05:48
almoxarifenitinab: you should have three processes associated with tracker running, all of them user processess05:49
almoxarifenitinab: how did you install 'tracker'?05:49
nitinabjust one is running ... the tracker-store, the gui is needle, which gives up no results when run05:49
vagothcppon the 11.10 amd64 there is no xorg.conf, has the location moved?05:50
nitinab"apt-get install tracker tracker-gui"05:50
SwedeMikevagothcpp: nope, but if there is no special config, there is no xorg.conf. sane defaults.05:50
lisa_k05:50
almoxarifenitinab: you need the 'tracker' package05:50
nitinabso i dont think i have any componentss missing almoxarife05:50
almoxarifenitinab: you need the 'tracker' package05:50
nitinabi did that almoxarife already ... the packages are available, i can get the ui and preferences page. just not the indexer05:51
almoxarifenitinab: install the 'tracker' <-- one word, package05:52
nitinabok done that almoxarife : says "tracker is already the newest version."05:53
almoxarifenitinab: log out, and return05:53
IcemanV9vagothcpp, there isn't one05:53

almoxarifegh0strider: is it a hardware gps unit, the kind you connect via usb?05:55
pangolingh0strider: stop wasting your time and ours please. Do your project in windows and worry about fixing getting the device working in linux later.05:55
JBunnyHi everyone. just installed drivers for my NVidia card and the resolution is stuck at 640x480. Any ideas?05:56
nitinabalmoxarife: that brings up the preferences dialog, there are folders set to be indexed, i even tried setting it to index always, even when there are other programs running .. no effect05:56
gh0striderhas anyone here ever had to reset a usb gps device to its default settings?05:57
vagothcppJBunny, it was just said to me: to fix screen resolution or other X problems: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution05:57
vagothcppIcemanV9^^05:57
almoxarifenitinab: find the logs at ~/local/tracker i think thats the place, see whats up05:57
IcemanV9vagothcpp,  it may help if you see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VideoDriverHowto05:58
nitinabhold on minute almoxarife05:58
almoxarifegh0strider: there is no config, there is nothing to return to default, those rom units spit out garmin protocol nmea and thats it05:59
vagothcppIcemanV9, I think the main problem is that I have 2 graphics cards, 1 internal (and not able to disable), and an nvidia 520mx, on windows, a program can be set to use either, not sure how this is going to work for ubuntu06:00
JBunnyalmoxarife: what was that command you had me enter the other day that let me know what my VGA adapter was ie VGA0 or 1?06:00
almoxarifeJBunny: not sure, you sure i gave it to you?06:01
nitinabalmoxarife: the path is .local/share/tracker and the logs are for tracker-store (empty) and tracker-needle (with previous search terms)06:02
JBunnyalmoxarife: pretty sure. it gave me a big list of things including my monitor.06:02
almoxarifeJBunny: xorg.0.log?06:03

Pascoal!seen fooka06:04
ubottuI have no seen command06:04
nitinabi can use all of them , apt-get was how i installed it ... purge and then a reinstall should help?06:04
IcemanV9vagothcpp, ah. not sure about that one. i believe it needs to be disabled in order for ubuntu to see nvidia.06:04
JBunnyalmoxarife: really? sorry, you and JStrong were helping me at the same time, maybe it was him.06:04
vagothcppIcemanV9, which is not possible, Ubuntu can see the nvidia, just X is unable to take advantage of it since I cannot find where to change the driver used06:05
almoxarifenitinab: use synatpic, search for tracker, there should be at least three apps installed, needle i believe makes it four06:05
nitinablet me do that almoxarife06:05
vagothcppi am about to attempt the manual install over the apt install and see if i get anywhere06:05
IcemanV9vagothcpp, any good from wiki? perhaps xrandr may help?06:05

paulus68I have added a new hd to my server how do I format it to be an ntfs Note(that I already tried several options however the file system it's mentioning is still linux when entering the command sudo fdisk -l07:17
carolosafter doing chroot in ubuntu oneiric, should I do grub-install /dev/sda or update-grub?07:18
Seveaspaulus68, what fdisk thinks the partition is and the filesystem that's formatted onto it are two different things unfortunately07:18
sathish_collab.net07:18
xtgyalawesome!  it's working, transferring now, thanks!!! :_D07:19
xtgyal*:-D07:19
Seveaspaulus68, and for a linux server I'd format it as ext4, not ntfs07:19
svaisanehi07:19
paulus68Seveas: is this drive then also available for window users?07:20
sathish_quit07:20
paulus68Seveas: that's the reason I wanted to have it in ntfs07:20
grendal-primeya this is considerably more versatile than the last time i looked at this07:20

Seveassvaisane, /var/log/syslog07:21
svaisaneSeveas: nothing there from NFS07:21
Seveaspaulus68, then the local filesystem does not matter. Samba is what you need :)07:21
Seveassvaisane, then look on the client07:21
svaisaneSeveas: cannot07:21
Seveassvaisane, well, then it's impossible for us to help07:22
paulus68Seveas: I agree with you there just wanted to be certain that ext4 is not a problem for the window users07:22

svaisaneintok: and also make coffee?08:06
JLucHello08:06
icerootintok: i guess "k3b" can do that08:07
dagerikIn which file is PPA's added?08:08
icerootintok: its a burning application for kde, which also can be used on gnome/unity and so on. if i am correct there is an option like that08:08
intoksvaisane is it really too much to ask for any of the OSS burning software to tie into FFMPEG? I've been able to do that on my old Mac for as long as I can remember, oldest version of Toast Titanium I have is 6, and it does it just fine08:08
icerootdagerik: /etc/apt/sources.list08:08
icerootdagerik: if not, use "grep -r ppa-searchstring /etc/apt/*08:08
dagerikiceroot: Nope, cannot find mine which is causing a 40408:08
JLucit happens irregularly that the application switcher disappear : 1) pressing Windows Key doesnt launch anayting (nothing happen) , and 2) no application bar appear when ALT TAB, i have to choose blindly, trying one, 2, 3, 4 presses until the right app is selected. Plz How to cure or avoid this deadlock to happen ?08:09

agus_sintangslikts: Ctrl + F for basic ehm, yo want to get full path08:40

Krissedim attempting this: sudo echo "echo smb:\\path to some windows share >> .gtk-bookmarks" >> /etc/skel/.profile08:40
sliktsagus_sintang: what?08:40
leontopodsudo vim08:41
MyrttiNSQ: you can donate to some upstream developers...08:41
dagerikpnorman: thanks, I got it!08:41
agus_sintangslikts: Ctrl + F and then type ".extension"08:41
MyrttiKrissed: you may want to use "tee" instead of >> or |08:42
sliktsagus_sintang: do you even understand the question? I know how to ctrl+f, but when I have the results, it doesn't show the path of the results even in the properties dialog08:42
pnormandagerik: When debugging ssh keys I find it's helpful to leave a connection open and try to open a second connection, to avoid locking yourself out08:42
sliktsI have to open each individual result and look at the path from there08:42
agus_sintangweh, it's should show "properties" if right-click08:43
sliktsagus_sintang: yes, and in the properties the path is TRUNCATED08:43
KrissedMyrtti hmm well since i just rememberd i altered sudoers file i suppose i should reboot before trying this first.. i tried making an empty file in the skel folder and see if i could append the line to that file. i couldnt08:43
agus_sintangowh, oke slikts08:43
onreKrissed, you certainly do not need to reboot. your problem is that the redirection happens in the normal user's shell, as in, sudo only affects the command before the redirection.08:44
onreKrissed, use sudo -s to get a root shell, then run your echo thing08:44
Krissedonre im trying to make instructions to configure a special version of ubuntu 11.10 so i need this to be as inactive as possible.08:45
=== yann_ is now known as aya
Krissedbasicly i just want a string added to the file08:45
onreKrissed, then you might try sudo "echo ... >> file"08:45
Krissedhmm ok ill try that08:46
onreKrissed, as i stated earlier, the problem is that sudo command >> file only runs the command as root. >> file "happens" as normal user.08:46
Krissedahh like that.. ok08:46
icerootKrissed: sudo echo foo > bar is not working, you have to use "tee"08:46
icerootKrissed: because sudo is acting on "echo" not on ">"08:46
Krissedi was just afraid it would get messed up when it sees two echo commands08:46
Krissedok thanks ill give it a try08:46
onreiceroot, how would pipe and tee make it any different? of course, unless you did echo something | sudo tee file08:47

Guest36393When compiling code with gcc, did they recently change where in the terminal instruction the libraries need to be listed?10:20
StarminnOH goodness. Alright, running Ubuntu 11.10. The font color was off, so I ran unity --replace. This created multiple instances of Unity overlaying each other. So I said screw it and ran "unity --reset." Now the font still isn't fixed, I've lost all my settings( which is my own fault), and now my background won't change either, and of course this happens as I'm going to bed. Anyone care to assist?10:20

StarminnI have tried to change the desktop background from the Appearance menu to no avail. Assistance? Ubuntu 11.10 w/ Unity10:31
supplyou can just open the image and set it as background?10:32
StarminnActually, I seem to have a bigger problem10:32
StarminnUnity seems to be stuck in an infinite loop of "unity --reset" so I cannot change *any* options. Any suggestions?10:32

suppldoes it provide any errors on where its stuck or something like that?10:35
diverdudeis it posible to somehow log error messages that occur at startup?10:35
ikoniadiverdude: they are logged10:36
diverdudeikonia, where?10:36
Starminnsuppl, Is that directed to me?10:36
supplyes.10:36

Starminnsuppl, No errors. Just a lack of action10:37
diverdudeikonia, ok... different servers and daemons etc. are initiated at startup, and they fail and send error messages and i need to debug it10:37
ikoniadiverdude: what's failing10:38
diverdudeikonia, something i have installed. Its not core ubuntu10:38
ikoniadiverdude: ok - so tell me what's failing10:38
diverdudeikonia, well its gitorious10:38
ikoniadiverdude: that's a gui as far as I know10:39

diverdudeikonia, and sphinxx server10:39
diverdudeikonia, yes it is10:39
diverdudesphinx server10:39
ikoniadiverdude: ok - so a gui won't start at boot up, so I'm not sure why you are expecting a gui to be lauched as part of the boot sequence10:39
ikoniadiverdude: ok, so first question. 1.) how did you install sphinx10:40
diverdudeikonia, well its using some scripts at bootup that fails10:40
diverdudeikonia, sudo apt-get install sphinxserver10:40
ikoniadiverdude: ok, what repo did it come from ?10:40
ikonia!info sphinxserver10:40
ubottuPackage sphinxserver does not exist in oneiric10:40

ikoniadiverdude: ok, can you start the sphinxserver manually ?10:41
diverdudeikonia, hmmm good question. i think i can but i am not sure how10:42
ikoniadiverdude: ok - so this is what you need to check10:42
ikoniadiverdude: that will give you information on any problems/errors10:42
ikoniadiverdude: you should also see the server trying to start in the syslog10:42

ikoniadiverdude: that's not what I said10:43
diverdudeikonia, no it was just an information10:43
ikoniadiverdude: I said you need to manually start it to test it, and you can also check the syslog to see it start10:43
diverdudeikonia, where do i see the syslog?10:44
ikoniadiverdude: /var/log10:44
ikoniadiverdude: when you boot the machine, you should also see it try to start it, do you see it then ?10:44
diverdudeikonia, yeah i do...it squirts out lots of messsages but it goes away again to quick. thats why i waanted to log it10:45
ikoniadiverdude: ok, so try to start it manually is the best way forward10:46
diverdudeikonia, ahh /var/log/boot.log has the info10:46
ikoniathat may not contain what you want10:46
diverdudeikonia, it has the errors i see at startup...at least the ones i can i remember i saw10:48
diverdudeikonia, git-demon script uses some depricated gems (its a ruby app)10:49
ikoniaok ?10:49
diverdudeikonia, ok thx. now i can start to try and resolve first that deprecation error which is printed like a million times10:53

SVNDRDoes anyone have a link the the best minimun requirements to run Ubuntu11.10 .. all i really find is RAM and HDD size.. but im trying to find a more detailed requirement page10:54
icerootSVNDR: like?10:55
icerootSVNDR: what else do you think is important?10:55
erwti want to write an auto resolution program in the linux kernel  ,for now my kernel 2.6.31 supports only one resolution 1024x768 ,i want to add multiple resolution formats in the kernel ,this is my screen .c file http://pastebin.com/rv9Mubf9, but before the above i want to know how ubuntu detects the multiple screen  resolution  and then chosses automatically10:55
SVNDRiceroot: like processes, and the speed, graphics card ect..10:55
dr_willisbest minimum.... is an odd term10:56
ActionParsnip!requirements10:56
ubottuHardware requirements to install, boot and comfortably use Ubuntu are listed at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements - For a !flavor with lower requirements, see !Xubuntu or !Lubuntu10:56
icerootSVNDR: no special vga needed, minimum cpu is i58610:56
ActionParsnipSVNDR: also the server install will need less than desktop initially. Depends what services you intend to run10:56
icerootor was i586 dropped?10:56
ActionParsnipi believe i586 was dropped10:57
icerootSVNDR: ok, every i686 cpu will work10:57
icerootSVNDR: speed doesnt matter10:57
ActionParsnipSVNDR: if you have a PC which is less than about 7 years old, it will run well in most cases10:57
SVNDRActionParsnip: i have seen that once.. im looking for more though.. or is that pretty much it.. because i have better then all them specs, yet Ubuntu really doesnt run well10:58
ActionParsnipSVNDR: what do you have in the way of CPU/RAM and video chip?10:58
icerootSVNDR: why not ask your real question? "why is my ubuntu slow" instead of "what minimum does ubuntu needs"10:58
SVNDR1.6GHz, 3GB RAM, my graphics is intergrated..10:59
icerootSVNDR: what does not run well? what ubuntu version, what desktop10:59
ActionParsnipSVNDR: what chip is it? the output of:  lspci | grep -i vga   will tell you10:59
SVNDRiceroot: i have, like 10 times.. and ive tried. like 50 different things.. its not helping..10:59
icerootSVNDR: what is top telling? what is the output of "free -m"10:59
ActionParsnipSVNDR: is the system a laptop?11:00
dr_willisintegrated still has a chipset11:00
SVNDRiceroot: Ubuntu11.10, and Ubuntu heats up my laptop to close to 80C sometimes.. it gets pretty laggy when switching pages.. umm theres another stuff but ive been over it before..11:01
ActionParsniphopefully it's not some SiS rubbish11:01
icerootSVNDR: your system is getting slow because the cpu will underclock itself if getting to hot11:01
ActionParsnipSVNDR: in a termiinal run:  lscpi | grep -i vga   what is output?11:01
SVNDRIntel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller11:01
iceroothope "underclock" is the correct word for it11:01
SVNDRiceroot: yea i know that.. and ive tried to fix the overheating, in so many ways.. with no good outcome.. not even an ounce of positive feedback11:02
SVNDRunderclock sounds bout right11:02
icerootSVNDR: but that info is important11:02
farrukhjonhi all! how get info about installed package for example path of installation...version etc.11:02
icerootSVNDR: because that is the reason for your problems and not the amount of ram, the vga or something else11:02
phoenix_firebrdi am using the onboard intel gma x4500 graphics card. Google earths needs libgl.so, what is the package i need to install to get the libgl.so11:03

Pumpkin- /win 3311:04
Pumpkin-aojfafj11:04
icerootSVNDR: the problem (and i thinkg i already told that to you some days ago) is... that your OS cant detect the hardware correctly, e.g. temp, fanspeed and so on and because of that its not running the fan (correctly)11:04
ActionParsnipSVNDR: is the system a laptop or desktop ?11:05

SVNDRdr_willis: i have bought a cooling pad.. which helps, barely though..11:05
icerootSVNDR: i told you that some days ago11:05
diverdudethe full error is: Gem::SourceIndex#add_spec called from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/source_index.rb:127.11:05
diverdudeNOTE: Gem::SourceIndex#add_spec is deprecated, use Specification.add_spec. It will be removed on or after 2011-11-01.11:05
lorddeltaAnd if so, how on earth to get it working...11:05
ActionParsnipfarrukhjon: apt-cache policy packagename    will show the installed and available versions11:05
SVNDRiceroot: what do you mean you told me that??11:05
farrukhjoniceroot: thanks for help :)11:05
icerootSVNDR: i am sure we already talked about your issie11:05
icerootSVNDR: and i named you the exact reason11:06
ActionParsnipfarrukhjon: the path is fairly irrelevant, all you need is the binary to launch the app which you can see with:    which command      e.g.    which gedit11:06
SVNDRiceroot: yes we have, and iive talked to about 10 other people also.. and ive tried almost everything thats been suggested11:06
icerootSVNDR: your OS (ubuntu) cant read the hardware-infos correclty and because of that its failing at adjusting the cpu-speed and fan-speed11:06
ActionParsnipSVNDR: do you have the latest BIOS?11:06
dr_willisdry ice. ;)11:07
icerootSVNDR: new bios and/or new kernel is a possible solution11:07
lorddeltaI've tried NetworkManager, ad-hoc network, security WPA/WPA2. It "associates", i can run wpa_cli and see that its "connected", but I can't seem to get any computers running on said network to speak to one another...11:07
SVNDRiceroot: just lmsensors cant detect it.. im pretty sure ice ramped up the RPM but changing something in a conf file somehwhere.. cant remember what now though11:07
ActionParsnipSVNDR: what make and model is the system (if it has one)11:07
icerootSVNDR: what?11:07
lorddeltaWorks fine without encryption.11:07
icerootSVNDR: rpm?11:07
dr_willis12.04 should help from what ive read with power issues.11:07
icerootSVNDR: you installed rpm-files?11:07
SVNDRiceroot: ive got the latest BIOS for my system, and it doesnt show anything about fan control either11:08
ActionParsnipSVNDR: what make and model is the system (if it has one)11:08
SVNDRiceroot: im not sure, this was like a week or two ago..11:08
lorddeltaI'd ask about this in networking, except it seems to me the problem is wpa_supplicant/NetworkManager/the state of linux wireless drivers...11:08

g[r]eekHey fellas. I've set up dnsmasq on my one ubuntu server. In order to use it as a DNS server on our LAN, I had to configure my laptop's /etc/resolv.conf to include the server's IP address as a nameserver. All was working fine until I rebooted my laptop. It seems /etc/resolv.conf has been re-written again. How do I ensure that my LAN server stays in there as a nameserver? Thanks11:26
hil001yes11:26
hil001I also got online with 12.04, but not 11.0411:26

llutzg[r]eek: add your dns-server to networkmanagers connection, rightclick connection, edit11:26
ActionParsnipg[r]eek: you'll need to set the interfaces on the clients to: dhcp (address only) then set the DNS to the IP of your DNS server, then some web ones11:26
hil001I cannot, because I chatting from Windows 7 on another PC11:27

g[r]eekHi guys. I'm using the package resolvconf to include our LAN server's IP address in the list of nameservers. This nameserver is configured in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head. Now the problem we're having is that while all requests to the LAN server are very fast, requests to the outside internet are taking forever to resolve. That's because our ADSL router's dynamically assigned nameservers are being placed after our LAN server's IP in /etc/resolv.conf.13:28
g[r]eekAnd of course if we swap them around (ie: put the LAN server's IP in resolvconf's tail file), the internet requests are quick but LAN requests are slow. Any idea how to solve this so that both are quick? Thanks13:28
ActionParsnipdubey: yours will be lightdm as you are using Oneiric with Gnome more than likely, mine is lxdm as I use LXDE :)13:28

ActionParsnipg[r]eek: its free to try13:30
vreghow do you get to the terminal on a livecd ubuntu?13:30
ikoniag[r]eek: you have a list of name server, some are you internal ones, some are you adsl ones13:30
ActionParsnipdubey: ask in #ubuntu-server too13:30
g[r]eekActionParsnip, no what I meant was why would that work?13:30
ActionParsnipg[r]eek: might be faster than the ones you have set13:30
ikoniag[r]eek: your internal ones are quick13:30
ikoniag[r]eek: stop the adsl router giving out it's name servers to clients, or fix the adsl's name server forwarding13:30
werdermint: its a lot easier and cleaner to redo the usb stick as that will clear out other problems the stick most probably has13:30

The server has got one physical netowrk card, eth0, and a 'virtual' interface, ppp0, which is the VPN tunnel when it s active.

kantlivelongBussDriver: i would suggest installing ubuntu in a VM for the time being if u can16:03
kantlivelongthat way u dont have to deal w/ driver nonsense16:03
kantlivelongBussDriver: u can always convert the VM to ur physical box when the stable driver is out16:04
BussDriverkantlivelong: I rely on the performance a bit too much for that I'm afraid16:04
rabbi1ActionParsnip: facepaste is the one for now :)16:05
poli2hello all! I just installed libsasl2-modules-sql and the libsql.so file is correctly in /usr/lib/sasl2, but when I try a saslpluginviewer, it will not list this sql plugin. Any ideas why?16:05
ActionParsniprabbi1: if it works, cool16:05
kantlivelongBussDriver: theres not much of a loss when using vbox unless your looking for high end video16:05
BussDriverthat's exactly what I'm looking for16:05
kantlivelongBussDriver: then again your likely not goingto get highend video w/ the opensource ati driver..16:05
BussDriverI can drive 2 external monitors with ubuntu right now16:05
BussDrivercan't do that in windows unfortunately :\16:06
kantlivelongBussDriver: vbox supports multimon16:06
BussDriverright, if the underlying OS does too16:06
kantlivelongBussDriver: yeah16:06
BussDriverwhich it doesn't for me16:06
kantlivelongstupid ATI(AMD)16:06
kantlivelongthey need to open their drivers16:06
BussDriverindeed16:06

BussDriveri thought it was nvidia that hasn't opened anything16:07
kantlivelongBussDriver: oh? i musta missed something..16:07
RamtinA1any one know how can i use socks5 in ubuntu?16:07
kantlivelongBussDriver: i know nvidia is closed but i never had much of a problem w/ them minus the stupid powermizer bugs16:07

_sammy_hoping someone can point me in the right direction here...  I'm trying to file a bug regarding oneiric hanging during boot (this is before X starts...  it's early enough that I can't boot to single user mode, but late enough I can boot to recovery mode).  To report a bug, I need to identify the package.  If I knew the package which was responsible, I'd have taken the damn thing out of the boot process by now.  Any ideas?16:47
jsschmidIt's a vserver, there is nothing I can change about that... I can't update the kernel....16:47
ikonia_sammy_: recovery mode is single user mode16:47
ActionParsnipjsschmid: what is the output of: lsb_release -a   use a pastebin to host16:47
_sammy_iknoia: it's *a* single user mode.  it's different that what you get from specifying "single" on the kernel command line.16:47
ActionParsnipjsschmid: https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=32598&forum=4116:47
ikonia_sammy_: it's the same thing16:48
ikonia_sammy_: there is just a wrapper16:48
ikonia_sammy_: disable bootsplash and see what process is hanging16:48
FarallaHi. Can I switch to console-only mode in 11.10?16:48
roadfishMonkeyDust:thanks again ... adding gateway to eth0 got my two computer ping'ing each other. But now eth0 and ppp0 are in conflict.16:48
jsschmidhttp://tinypaste.com/813ee36216:48
llutzActionParsnip: says nothing about the vps-system if thats the kernel of the openvz-node16:48
roadfishGood news, bad news. My two computers can ping each other after added a gateway line to eth0 /etc/network/interfaces.16:48
roadfishBut, bad news: I use a dialup-modem (aka ppp0) to get online ... and my modem fails after adding eth0 gateway. For instance "ping gnu.org" gives "unknown host" ... until I remove the eth0 gateway line again.16:48
FarallaHow can I shutdown X?16:49
_sammy_well, one works, the other doesn't.  fwiw, the last thing displayed is "fsck from util-linux 2.19.1".  I seriously doubt fsck is the problem, as the system boots if I set the bios to use the integrated intel graphics, and fails if I use the nvidia graphics.  I think the problem is near console-setup, but I can't actually nail it down.16:49
pip__cool, found some documentation.  Thanks again :)16:50
Tony_what is easier to install a tar.gz or tar.bz216:50
ikonia_sammy_: there is a known problem with the intel/ati ones16:50
ikoniaTony_: they are the same file16:50
ikoniaTony_: just compressed differently16:50
ikonia_sammy_: sorry, intel/nvidia ones16:50
_sammy_nor, for that matter, can I find where console-setup (via setupcon?) is actually invoked.16:50
MonkeyDustroadfish  i'm not familiar with ppp016:50
jsschmidActionParsnip: Well, I can't update and I am about to change the hosting anyway ... so it's just that I would like to know what the problem could be, in case something like that happens some other time16:51
ikonia_sammy_: there are quite a few bugs logged against it, there is a kernel option you need to pass to get it to force intel (I think from memory)16:51
jsschmidActionParsnip: http://tinypaste.com/813ee36216:51
_sammy_ikonia: interesting, that may be my bug, if it's a non-X-related crash.  also, I have an identical model laptop which does boot on the nvidia just fine.16:51
ikonia_sammy_: there is a ton of bugs against those cards16:51
_sammy_ikonia: erm, if I wanted to run with the intel graphics, I could force that in bios.16:51
roadfishMonkeyDust: bottom line is I want internet to go through ppp0 (dialup modem) but i want locat 192.168 to go through eth0 ... and they seem to be in conflict.16:51
ikonia_sammy_: many which have the same symptoms you suggest16:52
ikonia_sammy_: try it then, disable nvidia in the bios, see if it helps16:52
wiggmpkAlright, still having issues with my sound (finally got my speakers to work again) but my speakers wont mute when I plug in my headphones, any help would be awesome16:52

ikoniaI have seen that bug before16:52
_sammy_as does natty on the nvidia16:52
roadfishI'm firing up some google queries but nothing is too obvious yet. So I'm poking around for search ideas and/or solutions (like using gateway).16:52
_sammy_ikonia: if you've got a pointer to an existing bug number, or even some helpful search terms, that would be great, I'm not seeing anything similar16:55
ikonia_sammy_: I've not got the bug numbers to hand, there should be quite a few though16:55

martianTony_: Well, to convert a tar.gz to a tar.bz2, simply gunzip the tar and the bzip2 it up, but a deb is more than just a file format; it's CONTENTS are what matters. I don't know how to create a deb personally, but there is lots of info on how to do so online.17:01

mrtcHi there! I'm running ubuntu under VirtualBox and have mounted a shared folder with a sudo mount command. Is there somewhere I can put this command to auto run on boot?17:38
sfsf32why all of you talk nonsense? and why those strange acronyms used?17:38
ActionParsnipmrtc: in /etc/rc.local   above the exit 0 line will do it17:38
ActionParsnipsfsf32: which acronyms?17:38
mrtcActionParsnip: perfect, thanks!17:38
sfsf32lxde, gtk, ecc...17:38
ActionParsnipsfsf32: lxde is a name, gtk is short for Gnome Tool Kit, it is very understood in the Linux world. It's like VAT and such17:39
auronandacesfsf32: every area of expertise has jargon17:39
theadminsfsf32: Those are commonly known. Nobody wants to say "GIMP Toolkit" or "Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment"17:39
theadminActionParsnip: btw, GTK is "GIMP Toolkit", not "GNOME".17:39
sfsf32VAT?17:39

pangolinPlease get back to Ubuntu support. #ubuntu-offtopic will gladly entertain other subjects.17:42
sfsf32ok, thank you17:42
sfsf32is "ok" an acronym?17:42

jutnuxmsterbrewer: ./configure17:45
EvilResistancemsterbrewer:  you extract the information in the .tar.gz first, you dont usually *install* directly from a tar.gz17:45
jutnuxmsterbrewer: make17:45
theadminbudmang: Add "nosplash noquiet" to the kernel line17:45

ActionParsnipJimu: does 2D work ok?17:48
anynicknamemsterbrewer: or you can try the join.me website (it's made by the logmein team)17:48
auronandacetheadmin: you realise teamviewer is essentially a wine applicating that ships with its own version of wine17:48
EvilResistancemsterbrewer:  cant guarantee anything though17:48
JimuActionParsnip: sure does17:48

theadminauronandace: Still works well :P17:49
auronandacetheadmin: works well yes, but hardly what i'd call more-or-less native17:49
JimuActionParsnip: if you saw the screenshot, does that look like Ubuntu issue or VBox/Host issue?17:50
theadminauronandace: They did change the code in order for it to work with Wine though. Cut out some features which were broken, etc.17:50
anynicknamemsterbrewer: but if you really want hamachi on Linux, here, https://secure.logmein.com/labs/17:50
ActionParsnipJimu: ubuntu will use the hardware given, so I'd check settings etc17:51

LadyGoreyI tried to fiddle around with stuff in Terminal and it didn't work18:07
theadminLadyGorey: Might need to be root... Try: gksu nautilus18:07
theadminLadyGorey: Bad idea generally, don't abuse that too much18:07
zerefMonkeyDust: k, umm wlan0 is on 192.168.1.xxx and eth0 is on 192.168.0.xxx what should the gateway be?18:07
LadyGoreyIt keeps saying "Operation not permitted"18:07
MonkeyDustzeref  i guess your router, 192.168.0.1 or so18:08
theadminLadyGorey: Wait, HFS+?... idk if Linux supports writing to that.18:08

ubottubudmang: 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/fixsudo18:16

icerootdajhorn: if the mirror is not fully synced i would get an hashsum-missmatch because packages.gz is not matching the deb-files18:39
cwolf233the game is saved to my laptop18:39
sstaBetara: chown :somegroup filename; chmod 750 filename18:40
theadminBetara: Uh yes, see the manual of "setfacl"...18:40
cwolf233the .exe file that is18:40
MonkeyDustsudipta  great, we're getting somewhere, you see the partition, you just have to mount them, either manually or in /etc/fstab18:40
icerootssta: thank you i will have a look at it18:40
LadyGoreyIs there anyone who can walk me through accessing my external hard drive again?18:40
theadminBetara: You need to mount the filesystem with ACL support though. Or just change the owning group18:40
Betarassta Thank You!18:40
pdayton1why does the ubuntu download site recommend the 32 bit release?18:41
pip__I'll try again18:41
MonkeyDustsudipta  in a terminal: mkdir blah and then sudo mount /dev/sda5 blah18:41
ActionParsnipcwolf233: if the file is held on your linux partition, you can mark it as executable with:  chmod +x Setup.exe   (change the filename as needed), then run:   wine ./Setup.exe     The commands are VERY case sensitive too18:41
theadminpdayton1: Cause  the 32-bit architecture is more widely supported18:41
sudiptahow to do it with fstab? can u please help18:41
sstapdayton1: it does?  I thought they changed to recommend the 64bit now?18:41
icerootpdayton1: it will changed for 12.04 to amd6418:41
dajhornpdayton1: And because the proprietary things like Flash and Skype are more reliable on 32-bit.18:41
pip__My xterm has no scroll bars what do I have to do to get them?18:41
MonkeyDust!fstab| sudipta18:41
ubottusudipta: The /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions18:41
pip__I'm not using a mouse, just one of those funky buttons in the keyboard18:42
pdayton1thanks dajhorn18:42
ActionParsniptheadmin: oh absolutely, just warning of bad ideas18:42
dajhornpdayton1: Welcome.  This might change for the 12.04 release.   64-bit as the advertised default.18:42
Guest31464how i can change permission to editing my autorun file ? is sudo chmod 444 and sudo chmod 004 is god idea?18:42
sudiptadoes an entry in fstab ensure that the partition will be mounted automatically on start up?18:42
Guest31464*good18:42
ActionParsnipdajhorn: not had an issue in 64bit with either, there are 64bit versions of both18:42
Tony_anybody good with installing tar.bz2 files18:42
icerootsudipta: yes18:42
LadyGoreyI'm super afraid I'll hurt my computer/hard drive if I attempt this myself18:43
JasonnTony_: what do you mean installing?18:43
ActionParsnipGuest31464: do you own the file?18:43
sstaTony_: tar.bz2 is just an archive18:43
MonkeyDustsudipta  first do it manually, so you see what happens: mkdir NTFS and then sudo mount /dev/sda5 NTFS18:43
dajhornActionParsnip: The packaging for 32-bit is better.  No nsplugin wrapper either.  Better PulseAudio support.18:43
theadminActionParsnip: Sorry?18:43
skypentanyone had experience with verifying pgp signatures using seahorse?18:43
ActionParsnipdajhorn: there is native flash 64bit, it is released and in the partner repo18:43
ActionParsniptheadmin: just warning users of converting lossy to lossy, that's all18:44
Tony_jasonn, getting the archive to work.18:44
dajhornActionParsnip: It wasn't there for a long time.  I was the guy running the 64-bit PPA for it.18:44
iceroot!anyone | skypent18:44
ubottuskypent: A high percentage of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..." Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.18:44
ActionParsnipdajhorn: nice!!!18:44
theadminActionParsnip: Ah... Yeah that's a bad idea :D18:44
sstaTony_: tar jxvf foo.tar.bz218:44
cwolf233ActionParsnip: thanks!18:44
JasonnTony_: tar zjf (file name18:44
sstaor whatever the gui archive tool is called will do it18:44
Guest31464ActionParsnip: yes18:44
ActionParsnipdajhorn: yeah if you enable the partner repo and instal adobe-installer you will get 32bit or 64bit depending on the ubuntu arch18:44
Jasonnxjf *18:44
ActionParsnipGuest31464: then why sudo if you are the owner?18:44
dajhornActionParsnip: And Adobe was a bit unreliable in keeping their 64-bit build updated.   They would go weeks with known vulnerabilities.18:45
ActionParsnipdajhorn: your ppa was the bom dude18:45
skypenticeroot: that was the real question....18:45
skypenticeroot: that's as specific as the question would ever get...18:45
maginothowdy.18:45
dajhornActionParsnip: Thanks...  I think that the partner repo getting updated is probably why they're going 64-bit default.  Just a guess.18:45
Guest31464ActionParsnip: sory. may be i dont know good about permissions and cant correct answer to your question(18:45
=== ripps__ is now known as ripps
sudiptaMonkeyDust: it works fine......except one thing that i can not move anything to trash18:46
ActionParsnipdajhorn: its released now so is in the repos and that18:47
icerootskypent: ok, the answer is yes. so the question is answered18:47
icerootskypent: and now you will see you have a REAL question which it "how does it work"18:47
MonkeyDustsudipta  \o/ glad you're helped18:47
sudiptaMonkeyDust: thanks a lot :)18:47
Guest31464ActionParsnip: i try to make some permission to autostart file im my usb-drive for usind in windows pc with spyware,virus and other..18:48
skypenticeroot: i just wondered if anyone had; that's great to hear other people had also done that thing.  thanks, bud.18:48
theadminiceroot: Come on, don't... (s)he did ask the real question in the same line, anyway...18:48
pip__Xterm scrollbars...how do I get them please?18:48
theadminpip__: It doesn't HAVE any. Use pageup/pagedown to scroll18:48
iceroottheadmin: yes??? [19:43]   skypent | anyone had experience with verifying pgp signatures using seahorse?18:48
theadminpip__: Or use a normal terminal.18:48
ActionParsnipGuest31464: then make an autorun.inf file and windows will use it18:49
theadminiceroot: Yeah... "how to verify pgp signatures using seahorse" is the real question, it's pretty obvious from here :D18:49
pip__lol, I've installed lxterminal, didn;t think of page up or down, thanks :)18:49
iceroot[19:47]   iceroot | skypent: and now you will see you have a REAL question which it "how does it work"18:49
