ubottulazerath: Ubuntu Server Edition is a release of Ubuntu designed especially for server environments, including a server specific !kernel and no !GUI. The install CD contains many server applications. Current !LTS version is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04) - More info: http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu/serveredition - Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/ - Support in #ubuntu-server00:04
Danny_Jorishi, I have an ubuntu vm. My vbox is set up to use eth1 (airport) but when I do ifconfig it seems like it's trying to use eth2, which isn't defined. When I modify /etc/network/interfaces all eth1 to eth2 , I can use the ip address. But only at work, and not at home. Any idea why?00:04
flowerpotSuppose my server goes through a dirty shutdown and the file system may be in an inconsistent state.  Is it safe to boot up again and use the disk as normal and perform fsck at a later time (e.g. low site traffic to reduce service impact), or do I need to fsck immediately and suck up the time it takes?00:05
Danny_JorisI'm home now and want to use my vm, but I can't access it through the host browser00:05

grubbyoneDanny_Joris: you're trying to access it from the host?00:11
Danny_Jorisgrubbyone: yes00:11

mister2hey, i'm running ubuntu and wanna make a bootable windows xp disk with a nice simple tool. does anybody know how i would do that? and telling me to go elsewhere doesn't count as constructive, just so you know :P00:19
ActionParsnipmister2: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/10/create-bootable-windows-7-usb-drive.html00:20
TaosHow can I send mesages on the console to other online users00:20
agentgasmaskmister2: So you want to make a partition/extra hdd/usbkey/whatever bootable to windows using easy to use tools to complete the task?00:21
mister2actionparsnip: windows xp too?00:21
mister2agentgasmask: something like unetbootin would be awesome00:21
dlpdroidI'm trying to connect an Ubuntu box to the internet via an Android phone using USB tethering. The usb0 device is created, but upon trying to bring up the interface with "ip link set usb0 up", I get "RTNETLINK answers: Cannot assign requested address". Any ideas?00:21
ActionParsnipmister2: no idea, try it00:21
=== gskellig|mobile is now known as Gskellig
agentgasmaskmister2: I would like to see it. I didn't know you could do a "live" environment with Windows.00:21
mister2agentgasmask: you can, but that's not actually what i'm after, i want to install from00:22
agentgasmaskfrom?00:22
mister2let me clarify; i want to install windows xp from usb, and i'm in an ubuntu environment right now.00:22
Oermister2, try msdn networks, microsoft provides a usb tool, not sure if it can handle xp00:22
mister2oer does it function on ubuntu?00:23
Oerno00:23
mister2oer well that doesn't really help then...00:23
dlpdroidClearly NetworkManager doesn't do a very good job either, and starting dhclient on the interface yields the same error.00:23
mister2actionparsnip: nope, doesn't work00:24
DJ_HaMsTai have the latest ubuntu and hooked UP A AWUS036H WIFI card, on iwconfig it shows as wlan1 but i dont have the option to connect to other wifi access points on the networking widget on the top tool bar00:24
agentgasmaskmister2: Just a shot in the dark, and the others can correct me, but, I think you might be able to mount iso file via grub. The iso would be on the usbkey and grub would be installed as well. Fellas?00:25
mister2agentgasmask: theoretically useful, but overcomplicated. i'm installing on the laptop next to me, and a usb drive is far simpler. i was under the impression it was quite easy00:25
dlpdroidAnd this functionality would be useful as my phone line is dead (presumably due to JCB attack or similar).00:26
=== matt_ is now known as Guest18312
agentgasmaskmister2: that would be simple. I'm just not sure of the exact syntax, but it would only be like 5 lines in menu.list or grub.cfg.00:26

tioxIt's only on my custom X session I've seen this happen.01:09
tigrangSamsung Behold is the phone01:09
melliferahmm01:09
zenon=P ok I will stop being lame & come back when I have real troubleshooting01:10
tioxNot on Gnome Classic, not on Ubuntu, just on my custom X.01:10
AzzyWell, since most tutorials I find on getting adobe products on are outdated to as much as 2006, I can't really get anything going before I install Ubuntu01:10
melliferayou built the custom x yourself?01:10
kernel-ownageHi, does anyone have a good procedure to use tor in xchat ?01:10
tioxI meant X session, lol01:10
AzzyWasn't there a way to install Windows on a partition and use that partition from Ubuntu?01:10
bazhangkernel-ownage, on freenode?01:10
tioxJust took the Gnome fallback and added my own startup stuff to it. Shouldn't be a big deal.01:10
kernel-ownageyes01:11
tioxGonna remove DockbarX from Avant WIndow Navigator and see what goes.01:11
dtmbmw325itigrang what is on sdb1?01:11
melliferatiox: you could always rebuild your custom x session settings from a blank slate, I guess01:11
bazhangkernel-ownage, you'll need to get their instructions for tor over sasl, /j #freenode01:11
tioxI could, but I don't feel like remembering stuff,.01:11
kernel-ownagethank you01:12
AzzyAlso, if anyone owns a Toshiba, are the ACPI issues fixed or do I still have to work around them?01:12
tioxI just took the fallback session from /usr/share/xsession and the desktop file /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions, modified them and made something of my own to access from the login manager.01:12
tigrangdtmbmw325i, it was probably my flash drive01:13
dtmbmw325itigrang hmm I am not sure01:13
tigrangdtmbmw325i, is there a way to clear dmesg logs, so I can plugin just my phone and see if it gets logged01:14

tigrangdtmbmw325i, fdisk doesnt show it and its not in nautilus01:16
tioxMaybe running the memory through memtest fixed something.01:16
tioxSegfaulting is an extremely strange and enigmatic behavior. It's also strange and oddly fascinating how it irons itself out.01:17
melliferatiox: that's not good, might indicate a subtle memory problem01:17

tioxBRB, balls to figuring out files, easier to set it up by hand.01:18
tigrangprobably fat, im not sure id have to restart to check01:18
melliferatigrang: what device name did the phone get?01:19
tigrangmellifera, lsusb shows Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, not sure if thats what you need01:20
tioxI didn't even have to connect the computer to the printer to do a network print.01:21
* tiox feels very silly now01:21
melliferatigrang: I meant like /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc, etc. "lsscsi" should show you the name the phone got01:21
tioxThat USE to be practice on Windows, which is why I made it kinda a big deal to do so before. Huh.01:21
tioxWell, thanks for the encouragement mellifera. I'll have to let memtest do more testing some time.01:22
tigrangmellifera, sec, installing that app now01:22
dtmbmw325imellifera I am not sure what the deal is. It isn't getting a ?location?01:22
tigrangmellifera, it didnt get one. it only shows my hard drive and cd drive01:23
melliferatigrang: that means it's seeing the phone as a general usb device but not as a file-formatted harddrive.01:24
lorenzohi, I have set up an ubuntu access point but I cant seem to connect to it. I can see it, I can try to connect but it times out. I have no idea what is going on, how do I find out what the error is?01:25
tigrangmellifera, two things, running lsusb -v shows it as Mass Storage, and two, what can I do about it? what format does it need to be?01:25
melliferatigrang: I have a camera like that. You have to change a setting on the camera to make it be seen as a hardrive01:25
tigrangmellifera, in my phone settings Ive set it to "Mass Storage" already01:26
melliferatigrang: I don't know then. USB is so undependable01:26

dtmbmw325ilet me rephrase my thought... exchange works great with AD and windows... I havent used anything but lotus notes domino.... ick02:41
mystik_Bombslakcphil theres a limit to how much users i can have on my own vpn??? and i have to pay for more???02:42

funnyfingersmystik_Bomb do you have a router that supports VPN or you want one of the Ubuntu workstations to be the router?02:48
funnyfingersIf you have a router then you just have to worry about a client on each device.02:48
mystik_Bombidk if it supports vpn..its a newer router so i believe it should support it02:49
MathuinOkay, cube is sexy, but every time I swtich to a new face, the screen goes black for a very short period of time.02:50
funnyfingersthat isn't true at all.02:50
mystik_Bombi want to connect a windows 7, a ubuntu & an android device to one vpn02:50
funnyfingersWell first you have to see if your router supports it.02:50
funnyfingersOr let me rephrase or you can rephrase...02:51
mystik_Bomband this vpn that i want to connect all those devices to is on personal computer i ahve at home which has a ubuntu 10.04 os in it02:51
mystik_Bombwell excuse me im a lil confusing here02:52
funnyfingersSo you are calling your VPN at home a VPN which I assume is behind some kind of router, you are not home and you have all these devices that you want to connect to it?02:52
funnyfingerssorry you are calling your PC a VPN...02:52
mystik_Bombyes i am02:52

rypervenchemystik_Bomb: I, to this day, have not been able to get it to work properly on chromium.02:56
funnyfingersNot quite how you would do it.  I would use a router that would be the VPN.  The PC at home would just be inside the network and your external devices could make a VPN connection to your router.02:57
mystik_Bombrypervenche, u proxy tunneled thru vpn???02:57
mystik_Bomba proxy tunneled thru vpn? i meant to say..02:57
mystik_Bombwell i guess the router would be the network i connect to....02:58
grubbyonemystik_Bomb: if your router can support the full version of dd-wrt you can set it up as a pptp server02:58
rypervenchemystik_Bomb: Oops, sorry, wrong person.02:58
rypervencheDrDigital: I meant to send that to you.02:58
mystik_Bombfrom what i hear the android supports: PPTP, L2TP, L2TP/IPsec PSK, or L2TP/IPsec CRT  and l2tp/ipsec crt is the most secure..so i could want that02:59

grubbyoneI want to make a usb stick that boots up and automagically does things04:36
sharkmapLirth: one thing I did was sign up for a shell account on another computer and since it's a shell its command prompt only. good way to learnh04:36
Lirthsharkmap: how do you make a shell account?04:38
UidXawww i have a terrible stomachache04:38

WoCsolofight, looks like it04:39
sharkmapLirth: I went to sdf.org and they have free shell accounts. It's a non-profit, just for the users sort of place really cool04:39
solofightWoC, no other round abouts ?04:39
WoCi only had a quick look at it a few months ago, never had the time to dig into it, i resolrted to usb ;)04:40
sharkmapLirth: telnet to sdf.org, login as new and go from there. easy peasy04:40
sharkmapLirth: I'm logged in there right now, running irc from their shell04:41

WoCLirth, cd04:45
Lirthholstein, WoC: thanks04:46
Lirthholstein, WoC: what does cd stand for?04:46
sharkmapLirth: This is a good shell tutorial: http://www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/Teaching/Unix/04:47
sharkmapeasy to understand for the beginner04:47
zykotick9Lirth: cd = change directory04:48
Lirthzykotick9: Thanks.04:48
Lirthsharkmap: What is your opinion of the Bash tutorial on linuxconfig? http://linuxconfig.org/Bash_scripting_Tutorial04:49
PeterSJCTrouble installing Ubuntu 11.10 on a Dell Latitude D600; anyone want to help?04:49
urlin2uPeterSJC, just give a outline of where your at.04:50
axeiaXe_: D04:51
sharkmapLirth: not familiar with that one. is it linuxconfig.org ?04:51
iaXe_axe, ...04:51
PeterSJCCompleted a fresh installation... got back to a non-graphic shutdown screen, got a message "umount: /run/lock: not mounted", then something about casper and "Please remove installation media..."   But when I press ENTER, I see a couple of funny characters and then nothing.04:52
holsteinPeterSJC: how did it run live?04:52
PeterSJCI did not try running it live off the installation disk, but instead did a new-complete installation on a single 30 GB partition04:53
sharkmapLirth: Here's one with less ads popping up at you: http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/index.html04:53
urlin2uPeterSJC, is it a install from windows, a wubi?04:54
PeterSJCI created a CD (in Windows, another computer) and booted from that on the Dell04:54
Lirthsharkmap: In a bunch of tutorials there are the # symbols followed by notes. If I put that in the actual script would it just ignore it also as a default function of bash?04:55
sharkmapLirth: yeah those are comments04:56
Lirthsharkmap: Good to know if I'm ever smart enough to teach someone.04:56
sharkmapLirth: I'm really not that good yet. I was you three weeks ago. That first website I gave you is a really good beginning and tells you everything you need to know about the shell04:57
sharkmapto get started04:57
holsteinPeterSJC: i would try getting to the live desktop, then you'll know the hardware is supported, or how well it is supported04:57
zykotick9Lirth: the first line with the #! is not a comment BTW04:58
PeterSJCholstein: What is the "live desktop"?04:58
Lirthzykotick9: What does it do?04:58
holsteinPeterSJC: from the installation disc, try it live *before* installing04:58
zykotick9Lirth: it determines what to run it with #!/bin/bash vs #!/bin/sh should give different results (but this is a terrible example, as both would be the same on ubuntu)04:59
PeterSJCholstein: You mean the option where the installation disk asks whether you want to try Ubuntu or install it?04:59
sharkmapLirth: I think it is the beginning of the script05:00
holsteinPeterSJC: instead of installing, and hoping the graphics card is supported, you can try it live... you can boot up live, from the CD.. poke around in there.. try the sound.. see about the wifi if you have it... see how the screen looks... whatever else.. then, you can go from there05:00
Lirthzykotick9: Does it make the shell run differently? I've read about sh being the first and bash continuing on with it (or something like that) and there was another type mentioned. Would using the #! have different commands based on the shell?05:01
PeterSJCholstein: I will try it. Thanks05:01
MrKeunerhello, I have a script ran by user's crontab. When user runs the script, it works fine, however when the script is run by crontab $USER environment variable seems to be not defined. Why would that happen?05:01
xtgyalHello, I am trying to password-protect a directory in var/www with Apache on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx.  I followed the instructions at http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/howto/auth.html but doesn't seem to be working.  I typed at the bottom of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: " <Directory /var/www/secret> "   " AuthType Basic AuthName "Restricted Files" "   " AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords "   " Require user user1 "   05:01
zykotick9Lirth: (under normal cirumstances) sh has a lot fewer features then bash.  But in modern times, sh usually just point to bash.05:02
Lirthsharkmap, zykotick9: I just realized this is going slightly off topic from Ubuntu. Is there a bash IRC that I could log into for these discussions?05:02
MrKeuner$HOME is defined but somehow not $USER05:03
zykotick9Lirth: #bash, but it's a pretty "serious" channel05:03
sharkmapLirth: sh is 'bourne shell' and bash is 'bourne again' shell05:03
Lirthzykotick9: What do you mean by "serious"? Do they not like noobs?05:03
zykotick9Lirth: i'm kinda hinting at that ya - but i'm sure they're nice as well ;)05:04
Lirthzykotick9: I'll just try not to get booted.05:04

Lirthurlin2u: What?05:06
urlin2unothin05:06
Raymond_WoC, i have to edit the html to get it to work :)05:06

urlin2uLirth, I'm not worthy a reference to joke.05:06
pitarian@xtgyal http://www.sitedeveloper.ws/tutorials/htaccess.htm05:06
xtgyalUbuntu Help Manual says not to use htaccess ?05:07
Lirthsharkmap: I tried that once. Then I quickly discovered how close the 'b' and the 'n' keys are and how easy it can be to typo...05:07
pitarianand why is that?05:07
sharkmapLirth: same difference. :-)05:07
urlin2upitarian, you have a support question?05:07

xtgyalyes Ubuntu does list how to use apache2.conf and the code provided by http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/howto/auth.html does not work05:09
WoCsharkmap, heh... you got my hopes up on free shell, only free for students05:12
sharkmapWoC: well, its free for 600 days, but if you give them a dollar, it's forever.05:12
sharkmapWoc: and you don't have to be a student, I'm not.05:13
WoCOh, thx05:13
WoCno wi just need to find someone to verify me then05:13
LirthWoC, sharkmap: I'd say that's close enough to free. :)05:14
WoCerr validate that is05:14
sharkmapWoC: validate is just giving them a dollar (or 3 dollars if you do it through paypal)05:14
WoCi was reading the official join page05:15
WoCsharkmap, I assume scp is available after validation ?05:17
sharkmapWoC: not sure. There is another 'higher' level, it's 36 dollars (one time fee), that makes you a full on member with voting rights05:18
LirthIn the title info for this channel it says "Please use the torrents". I understand that torrents allow peer to peer data transfer, but I don't understand how it works.05:18
sharkmapWoC: could be that's not available on the free level05:18
WoCit does list ssh/sftp05:18
voozeHey guys.. i just installed kernel 3.2.0 though PPA, and wanted to try not using NON-opensource gfx driver.. but now this happens? http://peecee.dk/upload/view/349658/full check right corner.. with the "pixel fail" any ideas?05:19
sharkmapWoC: not sure what 'scp' is. :-)05:19
pitariananyone in here uses vyatta?05:19
abvayadIs there any aplet manager for ubuntu unity05:19
WoCscp; secure copy, part of ssh05:19
zykotick9sharkmap: scp = secure copy (it uses ssh)05:19
sharkmapWoC: inbound ssh for free, outbound for 36 dollars. :-(05:20
WoCk05:21
WoCI wouldnt use outbound ssh anyhow05:21
zykotick9WoC: you can probably install anything on Ubuntu that any shell service offers05:22
frybyehi - what do I have to do to get ubuntu 11.10 to run ckfs on starting??05:23
sharkmapzykotick9: the point for me is to have a remote shell, it's different than a local machine. it's 'real world' so to speak05:23
zykotick9!fsck | frybye05:24
ubottufrybye: fsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot05:24
WoCzykotick9, i reckon, if i ever get my head around the package system05:24
voozeHey guys.. i just installed kernel 3.2.0 though PPA, and wanted to try not using NON-opensource gfx driver.. but now this happens? http://peecee.dk/upload/view/349658/full check right corner.. with the "pixel fail" any ideas?05:25
zykotick9WoC: well, from terminal use "apt-cache search foo" to search for stuff, and "sudo apt-get install foo" to install ;)05:25
dragosmchi guys05:25
dragosmchow can i force ubuntu live to boot in UEFI mode?05:25
rich_hey whats going on05:25
WoCI got that part, zykotick9, its things like searching for which package  provided file y and that sort of things05:26
zykotick9WoC: providing a particular file, can be a little trickier at time.  I'll resort to online searches ;) if apt-cache fails.  If the file is on the system and you want to know what file it's from you can use "dpkg -S /path/to/file"05:28
WoCzykotick9, at the moment though; i would really like to know how to register a manual kernel installation05:28
WoCThanks05:28
zykotick9WoC: sorry I've never had to use manual kernels in ubuntu/debian good luck (not sure what you mean by register either)05:29
WoCwouldnt happen to know a way to make 'dpkg -l' output without the border ?05:29
WoCby register; so it would show up in 'dpkg -l'05:30
WoCand also for dependencies, i reckon05:30
LirthAt the start of this IRC page it tells us to use the torrents. Where would I found out how they work and how they can tell the difference between a bogus virus and a real file that I want?05:30
WoCi would assume quite some packages depend on a kernel05:31
zykotick9WoC: border?  what border?  i can't really add manually installed stuff to the apt database.  checkinstall can create DEBs from source, but i doubt kernel would be easy.05:31
the_padawan2can anyone help me with USB speakers? I see volume bars moving in the pulseaudio device checker when I play a song but no sound comes out05:31
frybyehi - I just ran fsck on start but still when I try to use acronis true image 11 to make an image of my pc it complains that "some particians have errors ..etc etc.. " it will only do a sector by sector backup - I need to use acronis cos other systems are too complicated for me...05:32
zykotick9Lirth: the torrent suggestion applies to downloading the ubuntu ISO - not other stuff..05:32
WoCzykotick9, try 'dpkg -l | tail' and you see the part to the left of the actual package name05:32
zykotick9WoC: that's the packages status05:32
PeterSJCholstein:I am running Ubuntu from the CD, on this Dell computer and have encountered no problems with the GUI programs that I have tried. (not sure how to start a shell to try commands)05:32

Lirththe_padawan2: Try hitting super and searching for the "sound" setting. There is a tab with "Hardware". Try checking that out. It's how I got my 2nd monitor to run the sound.05:33

j1000_linux not linus05:33
the_padawan2@Lirth hitting super?05:33
Lirththe_padawan2: windows key05:34
zykotick9frybye: sorry i have no idea what acronis is - and i personally think drive image backups are a waste of space.  but best of luck.05:34

the_padawan2Lirth: ok i don't have that... i'm on 10.0405:34
WoCheh, thanks zykotick9, i thought it was just some table frame gone broken or so... ii05:34
Lirththe_padawan2: Do you have the system settings program?05:35
frybyezykotick9: thanks - but what do you do if a system gets shotup?05:35
zapbuzzwhere do i go to get the above driver?05:35
the_padawan2Lirth: Yes; i have even set the device in Sound preference>Hardware05:35
Lirththe_padawan2: and that's not working?05:35
the_padawan2Lirth: afraid not05:36
frybyezykotick9: do you just make a copy of /home or...?05:36
Lirththe_padawan2: I know this makes it sound like I think you're an idiot (I don't, I do this all the time), but is it turned on?05:36
zykotick9frybye: i carefully keep track of any system files i modify (and back those up), and back up selected . files in my home dir, and my files obviously.05:37
the_padawan2Lirth: It is, the there is an LED on the volume control05:37
WoCzykotick9, looks like; hi, rc, ii05:37
the_padawan2Lirth: the color of the LED even changed from yellow to green...05:37
PeterSJCholstein: are you still here?05:37
zykotick9WoC: did you find out what they all mean?  i know ii is installed, and the rc means there are config files, no idea what the hi stands for.05:37
the_padawan2Lirth: and now apparently it's red...05:38
Lirththe_padawan2: good. Now, in your screen there should be a volume icon (I'm not experienced with .04 so I don't know where it is). Mine is in the top bar with things like the clock.05:38
Lirththe_padawan2: and the good was from earlier...05:38
urlin2uPeterman, the live cd run okay?05:38
the_padawan2Lirth: yeah i've got volume control05:38
frybyezykotick9: if I needed to re-install the ubuntu (dont have the level of knowledge to do it your way..) then having a copy of /home and putting that over the new installation would work or..?05:39
j1000_any takers on looking at this error to see if i'm missing a lib or something needed to compile05:39
the_padawan2Lirth: as in, i've got the program to do it05:39
Lirththe_padawan2: is that on?05:39
the_padawan2Lirth: yes05:39
the_padawan2Lirth: in the Output panel it lists two devices, internal and the USB05:39
the_padawan2Lirth: I have selected USB, it's unmuted and the volume is up05:39
zykotick9frybye: it should!  but, that assumes it's the same version of ubuntu, in rare cases .home stuff can cause issues with newer versions of software :(05:39
frybyezykotick9: basically all I need to do is get acronis tru image to work without complaining about damaged partitions.. even if takes space on a usb drive - this helps me...05:40
zapbuzzim looking for a driver for s3 Chrome 9 HC for x64 Ubuntu05:40
plumhey all05:40
Lirththe_padawan2: Hopefully your sound settings (in hardware) has this. Mine shows a drop down menu called "Settings for the selected device:". Do you have that?05:40
plumis truecrypt good? will it slow my computer down?05:41
the_padawan2Lirth: you mean in Hardware Drivers?05:41
frybyezykotick9: I guess csfk only looks at the file system structure.. perhaps it is a physical defect on the h-drive .. any linux programme to check that and excluse damaged sectors etc..?05:41
Lirthplum: I haven't used it personally but I've run into a few recommendations for it.05:41
plumhmm. i'm considering it just for kicks05:42
Lirththe_padawan2: I mean the sound settings where you chose the USB speakers05:42
WoCzykotick9, i think i got the gest of it05:42
zykotick9frybye: i'm sorry, i just looked up acronis - and it's propritary software, i'm no longer interested in helping you with your issue.  good luck though.05:42
frybyeIf I want to save /home - does the .home content get saved with it..?05:42
the_padawan2Lirth: ah ok05:42
plumi'm not a "bad boy" kind of person, but i'm curious at it. i just don't want to lose performance05:42
the_padawan2Lirth: there's just one drop down called Profile. the choices are "off", 5.1, or 4.1 sound. I have it set to 5.105:43
extenderI've never seen anything slow down because of truecrypt05:43
urlin2uplum, kinda off topic it is a third party ubuntu has encryption.05:43
Lirththe_padawan2:  That should be it. Are your speakers 5.1 surround?05:43
plumtrue, my bad05:43
the_padawan2Lirth: yes05:43
flowerpotIs there an channel op online right now?05:44

Lirththe_padawan2: and you just hit the end of my technical expertise. I thought I was smart for the last five minutes...05:44
the_padawan2Lirth: ok well thanks for trying05:44
the_padawan2Lirth: back to the forums05:44

voozeI just update to kernel 3.2 (ubuntu 11.10) how do i enable nouveau instead of nvidia-driver? Some says its blacklisted after having used nvidia-driver05:46
zykotick9frybye: it depends on how you save ~ if the .folder stuff is saved (be careful), if you use nautilus CTRL+H will show hidden files.05:46
j1000_ok im ubuntu stupid so im reduced to begging can someone look at an error and on an ics compile and see if it is a missing lib?05:47

Lirthj1000: Try putting the error in pastebin and giving the link05:48
zykotick9vooze: the blacklisting is true.  I'd start by checking /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf.  Regarding the driver you should either move xorg.conf or edit it (harder method)05:48
j1000_just a sec thanks lirth05:48
flowerpotzykotick9, urlin2u: thanks05:48
j1000_http://pastebin.com/ES269uaa05:51
voozezykotick9: thanks for your answer. I see its not in blacklist.conf, where is xorrg.conf located?05:51
frybyezykotick9: am not sure what the default file manager is in 11.10 unity - but I am just copying the whole home directory and hope that does it..05:51
zykotick9vooze: it's possible the blacklist is elsewhere then??? xorg.conf is in /etc/X11/xorg.conf05:52
ruesy.05:52
zykotick9frybye: unity is gnome, which uses nautilus - so ctrl+h should work05:52
zykotick9frybye: just verify your backup has the .hidden folders05:53
frybyezykotick9: If I remember right for such a re-install there is another directoy that is important to backup - /etc..something? You know it..?05:53
j1000_if that error means anything to anybody i'm open to suggestions05:53
LirthWhere do I find the error dumps? I've had a problem where ubuntu just outright crashes.05:53
voozezykotick9: hmm not sure, but xorg.conf is not in /etc/X11/05:53
zykotick9frybye: /etc has all the system settings - important if you've modified any, but not sure of the value of backup it up if you haven't05:53
zykotick9vooze: that's ok, but i don't think you could be using the nvidia driver then (it requires xorg.conf), while the open source drivers don't need it05:54
QaDeShiyas. anybody else got problems with the latest firefox upgrade in 10.04?05:54
urlin2uflowerpot, no problem. :)05:54
j1000_my error is in trying to compile ics so i just copied what was in the ternminal05:54
frybyezykotick9: my idea is that if the system breaks - I can use a 11.10 install cd to re-install and then just write the /home over the existing one - if writing the /ext over the installed one is a good idea - to get back to where I was before broken?05:55
zykotick9QaDeS: crashes?  someone earlier renamed there ~/.mozilla and it seemed to correct there issue, but lost there settings (something in the settings might not be compatible with firefox 10)05:56
j1000_i think its a missing lib but i followed several guides to the letter and im not the only one getting the same error05:56
zykotick9frybye: ya, after reinstall just replacing your backed up /home should work (you might/probably will have to chown the directories)05:57
voozezykotick9: ah okay, but its because i get this "pixel error?" http://peecee.dk/upload/view/349658/full check right corner05:57
frybyezykotick9: right - there is a recursive for chown - so I could apply it to /home and all below it right?05:58
zykotick9vooze: with my uzbl browser and that image paste site, i can't actually scroll right to see the corner, sorry.  Was there some reason you upgraded your kernel?05:58
zykotick9frybye: you shouldn't!  /home should be owned by root:root, only the subdirectories should be owned by there respective users05:59
frybyezykotick9: ok tks06:00
QaDeSzykotick9, didn't work :(06:00
QaDeSis there a way to pin apt to an earlier firefox version?06:01
zykotick9frybye: what i was getting at: if you reinstall, and create users with the same name(s) they might not be the same UID# and thus the system will view them as different users06:01
voozezykotick9: I use gnome shell.. with nouveau and 3.0 gnome shell was a bit buggy, then i tryed with nvidia + nvidia experimental from the driver-gui.. but some shell-themes were really slow.. So i figured I would give 3.2 kernel + nouveau a shot :)06:01
=== Gskellig|away is now known as gskellig|mobile
zykotick9vooze: typically the ONLY reason to upgrade to a new kernel is to get hardware support for newer devices06:02
LirthWhere do I find crash dumps?06:02
voozezykotick9: as okay, i though that nouveau was updated with new kernels also :)06:03
zykotick9QaDeS: the repo probably no longer has the older version though, so going back might not be possible.  Specific to your question, see "/msg ubottu pinning" for pinning details.06:04
zykotick9vooze: possible? i suppose.06:04

LirthI've got a question on the naming of Ubuntu releases. I've noticed there has been 11.04, 11.10, and 12.04 is coming out next. Why is it named with .04 and .10?06:13
zykotick9Lirth: month they are released in06:14
zykotick9Lirth: first number is the year06:14
acerimmerLirth- 11 = year 04 = month06:14

urlin2uColonel_Panic, is this a full install on the usb or a iso loaded with a persistent file?06:26
Colonel_PanicIt's both06:27
Colonel_PanicI mean, it's a  bootable USB, and I have made an ISO out of it as well06:28
urlin2uColonel_Panic, that makes no sense these are separate types of setups.06:28

Colonel_PanicThe idea is to take an existing distro from a bootable USB stick, add some programs, and then burn the whole thing to a bootable DVD06:31

nowzHello, I would like to set up a Web server with Apache/PHP & Mysql06:48
nowzI heard about "lamp" but i don't find it in my apt06:48
zykotick9!lamp | nowz06:48
ubottunowz: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)06:48

zykotick9ParkerR: i realize that's not directly related to your issue, but...07:03
urlin2ukapz, you will have to ask in the other channel it is in development, if you need a stable it is not technically stable.07:03

zykotick9ParkerR: when you did the "dmesg | grep firmware" did you see loaded messages?07:05
kapzurlin2u: I thinki you don't get my question, I dont want to spend my limited bandwith downloading the whole ISO then AGAIN downloading almost all the updated packages...is there a way to get a minimal install then just download the current packages such as unity,firefox 9/10 etc07:05
acerimmer!mini|kapz07:06
ubottukapz: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD07:06
urlin2ukapz, of which one 12.04, 11.04...etc?07:06
zykotick9aBound: are you using Unity? not sure if it's possible with that either.07:06
urlin2u11.10 is the question07:06
ParkerRzykotick9, There was just one "[    8.414357] iwlagn 0000:03:00.0: loaded firmware version 8.83.5.1 build 33692" Looking through dmesg it seems like the correct firmware was loaded for the card07:06
kapzurlin2u: stable release which is I think 11.1007:06
zykotick9ParkerR: i doubt that has to do with your TV card though?07:06
aBoundzykotick9, Yes I'm using Unity. Figures, with the wallpaper plugin enabled it'll more or less work though Compiz is a bit buggy for 11.10.07:07
urlin2ukapz, you can use a minimal and do a netdownload07:07
ParkerRNope07:07
kapzthanks ubottu, I guess this should sufffice07:07
zykotick9aBound: historically you had to enable the wallpaper plugin in compiz, then disable nautilus from controlling the desktop.  But I REALLY am not sure how to do it on modern systems (or if it's even possible), I'm talking old Gnome2.07:08
brighthashello everybody.07:08

acerimmerzykotick9 - that's not late, that's mummified07:15
zykotick9acerimmer: it was late, by two months, thus the .06 versus the scheduled .0407:16
ryan__zapbuzz: Okay, well you already have the tarball. All you need to do is decompress it using tar -xvzf file.tgz, and then cd into the directory. Then compile using ./configure, then make, then sudo make install07:16
acerimmerzykotick9 - I stand corrected.07:16
zykotick9zapbuzz: ryan__ WAIT - if it really is make, make install - use checkinstall (so it can be removed if there are issues)07:17
zykotick9!checkinstall | zapbuzz07:17
ubottuzapbuzz: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!07:17

ryan__memyself: man wget says that you can use --spider to check if the page is there but to not actually download it, if that helps your purpose07:22

imgx64I reported a bug in Banshee two months ago (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=665356 ), but no one has responded. Can someone please confirm it or at least give me a workaround for the problem?09:46
ubottuGnome bug 665356 in general "Playing a "Music" track makes "Videos" playback stop moving to the next video" [Normal,Unconfirmed]09:46
scarleoalmoxarife, no, but I have a ssh connection open, displaying the folders and then unmounting that ssh and nautilus closes09:46
scarleoalmoxarife, I expect it to fall back to something, not close09:47
almoxarifescarleo: nautilus is opened within the ssh session? otherwise why would it close?09:47
theadminalmoxarife: (s)he's using an sftp:// connection from Nautilus, which makes a pseudo-"device" appear in the left bar. If you unmount that device with the folder being currently open, nautilus will close itself09:49
theadmin(which is a sane behaviour, in my opinion)09:49
scarleotheadmin, sane? :) I still need nautilus, just not the ssh/sftp session09:50
scarleoit's annoying09:50
imgx64I find Nautilus inconsistent about that. When I unmount/eject a drive I'm currenlty in, it sometimes goes to the home folder and sometimes closes.09:50
theadminscarleo: Yeah, well, uh... Click "Home" in the left bar *before* unmounting?09:50
almoxarifescarleo: never mind, one way to keep nautilus from closing yet being able to access remote via sftp is to install 'gigolo' and set it up to keep the session open and avail to navigate at .gvfs, worked for me09:51
scarleotheadmin, like imgx64 says, it behaves different different times. Sometimes it even closes when I'm in home and closes a ssh session09:51
scarleoand sometimes it falls back to home when I'm displaying the ssh session09:51
theadminscarleo: Huh... Well, I don't use nautilus myself so I dunno. Weird behaviour indeed09:52
almoxarifescarleo: purge nautilus and re-install, freshen it up09:52
scarleoalmoxarife, yeah, I'll try that09:53

It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot11:50

LigHGreetings.12:41
_Ethan_uep!12:41
_Ethan_Does it worth to install ubuntu 64 bit for a 2.4Ghz quad (i think q6600)12:42
bullgard4_Ethan_: Yes.12:42
_Ethan_i´d like to know, in general terms, differences in performance.12:42
dafoxdoes ubuntu still use the file /etc/fonts/local.conf? It seems to be ignored, and it's not included by e.g. /etc/fonts/fonts.conf ?12:42
auronandace_Ethan_: if you can install 64bit, it's almost always best to install 64bit12:42
_Ethan_auronandace i´d like to bencharmk it, any command or programm?12:43
namoamitabuddhadafox: don't use.12:43
LigHI don't get weather and temperature values for my location I set up in the scheduler in Gnome Classic. Is my location too far away from the next supported location, regarding its coordinates?12:43
auronandace_Ethan_: sorry, iv'e never run any benchmarks12:43
_Ethan_and, is it possible to install ubuntu 64 "over" ubuntu 32, to not to do more partitions12:43
theadmin_Ethan_: No, it's not12:44
_Ethan_oh :12:44
_Ethan_(12:44
theadmin_Ethan_: That is, you have to reinstall.12:44
theadmin_Ethan_: You can't "upgrade" to 64-bit or something12:44
dafoxnamoamitabuddha: why not, and what is the recommended way to enable the lcflegacy filter for freetype/fontconfig?12:44
_Ethan_yes, that's what i mean, but would be my programms conserved?12:44
_Ethan_ok12:44
namoamitabuddhadafox: If local, create $HOME/.fonts.conf12:44
_Ethan_i didnt read "cant" xD12:44
zykotick9_Ethan_: using 64bit or 32bit depends more on the ammount of memory you have then anything else, if you have 4GB or more, use 64bit (i actually use 64bit whenever CPU supports, but on my EEE with 1GB RAM it's foolish really)12:44
dafoxnamoamitabuddha: system wide please12:45
_Ethan_i have 4 gb yes12:45
namoamitabuddhadafox: If global, write a new file in /etc/fonts/conf.d/12:45
dafoxnamoamitabuddha: and if I put it in .fonts.conf, it should have the same effect as local.conf in terms of priority12:45
_Ethan_zykotick9 what is your EEE ?12:45
varun06I have installed Marlin, can I remove nautilus?12:45

mintmanDeckard_25_: haven't seen a question on governing cpu since back in ubuntu 9.04.  Short answer is no and if you have limited resources use a lubuntu or crunchbang or bohdi or small damm linux or puppy linux.13:20
FCR2012Asdf13:20
LjLasdfss: are you really sure you can't boot from USB? it's possible you have to press F8 or something while the BIOS boots, in order to select the boot device. i'm saying this because i think a real installation is preferrable to Wubi.13:20

FCR2012LjL yeah13:20

LjLkwtm2: normally, you don't get updates in the first place. only those for security fixes or fixes to serious bugs (until End Of Life). there is the "backports" repository, but it doesn't contain all packages, only those that people request.13:21
asdfsscannot choose cd13:21
FCR2012Windows don't13:21

mintmanvideo card sis or mirage has had problems running in ubuntu since 8.1013:52
BarbariandudeYou ubuntu guys are awesome btw, ubuntu introduced me to linux and gave me a relatively safe place to play with things and learn without brutally destroying my install. Now I feel more confident I'm going to Gentoo. Cheers guys :D13:53
cmenchiononly question I have is how do i install video drivers :)13:53
qwertz1111no, it's ubuntu has had problems13:53
mintmanBarbariandude: wow that is a mighty step hill your climbing good luck13:53

cmenchionits a onboard intel 965 i think....its an old acer aspire 361013:55
danieldsjcmenchion:  I find that Intel cards usually work out of the box.  Is there something lacking from the graphical functionality?13:56
MonkeyDusti have intel13:56
cmenchionit seems laggy compared to when running windows xp13:57
Gentoo64cmenchion: it will do13:57

danieldsjcmenchion:  If you have old hardware, you might want to consider using Lubuntu.  It is an Ubuntu flavour that uses LXDE.13:58
cmenchionGentoo64 it doesn't seem like that. using same game (minecraft) I thought would run better in ubuntu runs worse....like everything usually updating drivers help13:59

cmenchionahhh thanks danielsj13:59
cmenchionI'll check it out13:59
qwertz1111danieldsj: it will not help14:00
mintmanqwertz1111: this is going to be as close as u get to the reaction as what ur having with this sis 771 card and there solution14:00
mintmanqwertz1111: http://blog.bigsmoke.us/2011/01/18/ubuntu-sis-671-driver14:00
qwertz1111because lubuntu uses same gnome applications as standard ubuntu14:00
qwertz1111and gnome services takes same amount of memory14:00
danieldsjcmenchion:  Using Lubuntu may help with general operating system snappiness, but the Minecraft performance may be due to something else.14:01
Gentoo64lubuntu will still help in terms of graphics performance14:01

linusoleanderIt's about 20% faster than normal. I used date -s "time" to reset it last night, and now it's 3h and 22 min off.14:16
linusoleanderThe npt update is turned of as of yesterday – just in case. What can the problem be?14:16
dr_willislinusoleander:  has it always had this issue?14:17
linusoleanderdr_willis: No, the server has been working perfect for 1.5 years14:17
linusoleanderIt appeard 2 days ago14:17
dr_willislinusoleander:  Strange. - I had a laptop once where the clock ran like at 10x normal speed due a bios bug. but i dont see how that could be your issue.14:18
dr_willisI coulkd sit and watch the panel clock tick seconds by at 10x normal speed.. :)  made games really really hard..14:18
linusoleanderdr_willis: The first thing to do, if possible, would be to detach from the BIOS clock14:18

linusoleanderThe last message was to oCean14:20

Barbariandude!nounity | Somelauw14:34
ubottuSomelauw: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic14:34

dr_willis|Long|:  via bash/command line you mean?14:41
Somelauw|Long| in evince you can select multiple files14:41
SomelauwIn bash, you'll probably have to use a forloop thing.14:41
dr_willis|Long|: bash has a regular expression feature to do that.. but i  would just cheat and use 'mc' or some other command line file manager. :)14:42
|Long|i use ssh preferably cmd like mv14:42
dr_willismc is too handy to not know about.14:42
dr_willisworks great over ssh also14:42

Somelauwdon't know why it is not available in the software center14:42
dr_willis|Long|:  bash has some syntax similer to that.. but i dont know it exactly off hand.14:43
dr_willisdir/file[1-9]  perhaps..14:43
|Long|let me try that14:43
dr_willistry echo flile[1-9] as a test.. or just make a simple script that does each move. and run it.14:43

bullgard4ikonia: What "shortkey" do you mean?15:00
ikoniabullgard4: "super-key -> epihany"15:00
ikoniamcl0vin: that looks like a conflict from a PPA package15:01
ikoniamcl0vin: I've seen something similar recently with (I think it was) the Gimp PPA15:01
ikoniamcl0vin: got any PPA's or 3rd party repos enabled ?15:01

AD_Ubuntu 11.10 64bit from USB15:03

ikoniaAD_: what are you talking about then, "can't connect" if there is no OS installed15:03

mcl0vinikonia: what poor me should do now15:03
ikoniamcl0vin: it's the price of using PPA's that are not well designed or thought through, and it's part of the reasons people don't support PPAs15:04
ikoniamcl0vin: re-install15:04
ikoniaAD_: I have no idea what you are talking about "asking you to connect"15:04

ikoniaandongni: bad apci support ?15:05
mcl0vinikonia: please tell me that the upgrade will continue and when you said reinstall you are talking about gimp and other 3rd party15:05
ActionParsnipandongni: power button cuts the power, works on any OS.15:05
ikoniamcl0vin: very doubtful15:05
AD_Yes, but is should right?15:05
ActionParsnipandongni: do you have network shares mounted?15:05
AD_it should15:05

daneshello, is there any support for fingerprint readers? Do you recommend using one?15:13
ActionParsnipAD_: when you select shutdown and you see the plymouth splash, press ESC so you can watch the shutdown. See where it hangs15:13
aukMy web browsers recognizes my java 7 plugin from Oracle's website. but I can not get those plugins to work.     Especially since I deleted my /home/ user directory to fix the problem of slow LOGOUTS.15:14

ubukouActionParsnip, i got stuck with LightDM.. have you used it ?15:15
ikoniabullgard6: I doubt it's a genuine problem as someone would have noticed such a core bit of fucntionality not working, it's more likley a problem with your setup15:15
bullgard6ikonia: Right.15:15
AD_ActionParsnip: what do you want to know, there a bunch of stuff hanging15:15

xubuntu5hey!15:21
ActionParsnipauk: http://paste.ubuntu.com/828926/15:22
ActionParsnipauk: its pretty simple really15:22
frybye- put differently.. is there a way to specify what video driver to us during the boot process...?15:23
danesI plan to buy a usb fingerprint reader to use it with ubuntu. Anyone has suggestions as which brand may be convinient?15:23

frybyedanes.. most work afasik15:23
=== wolf is now known as Guest20279
ActionParsnipfrybye: you can blacklist drivers to force the OS to load a specific one, or you can use an xorg.conf file15:24
ikoniadanes: also check at what kernel level they are supported at to make sure the ubuntu version you want to use is at that level15:24
ActionParsnipauk: I use chromium browser too, hence the symlink15:25
aukYea I noticed.15:25
frybyeso the pc is running with the ati 3000 onboard now - and if I edit xorg.config - fit the gt240 card in - it will then use the corrected xorg.conf?15:25
=== Lorra is now known as LorraEatin
ActionParsnipfrybye: do you want to use both video cards?15:26
frybyeeh - or wont the changed xorg.conf take immediate effect or .. hmm.. me with limited knwledge again..15:26
ActionParsnipfrybye: the xorg.conf will need manually editting15:26
frybyeActionParsnip: no I am happy with just the gt240 - which is much better than the 300015:26
ActionParsnipfrybye: then disable the onboard card in BIOS and set the primary display to the pci express15:27
_Ethan_for a remote control of a pc by using LAN, what would you recommend me ? any software?15:27
jack1what up fools15:27
jack1WHAST HAPPENING15:27
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: what are you controlling it to achieve?15:27
jack1YO YO15:27

ikonia!guidelines > jack115:28
ubottujack1, please see my private message15:28

ikoniajack1: also you may want to check how to interact in the channels, ubottu has just sent you a pm with a link to guide you15:28
_Ethan_ActionParsnip im planning to mount a pc without screen and keyboard, in a small room, and control it from my bedroom by using a remote connection.15:28
jack1no wackers15:28
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: yes but to achieve what end?15:28
bastilist15:28
ActionParsnipfrybye: the nvidia-xconfig    command will make you an xorg.conf   file.15:29
_Ethan_i dont want to have the tower with the fan (very noisy) in my room.15:29
ikoniabasti: no15:29
ikonianot here15:29
_Ethan_and i dont have a flat screen , so i prefer to control it remotely, it is a old amd athlon15:29
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: so the client system is more like a thin client15:29
frybyeActionParsnip: even with the gt240 card not physically present??? If I put it in the pc automatically tries to use it and makes a mess of the screen?15:30
_Ethan_i thought about teamviewer15:30
_Ethan_but i think it has to connect to the teamviewer's servers15:30
ActionParsnipfrybye: you may need the boot option:  nouveau.blacklist=115:30
frybyeActionParsnip: thanks for all the help so far...15:30
_Ethan_and i cannot have LAN speed15:30
_Ethan_in that case15:30
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: but what activities are you doing on the remote system?15:30
_Ethan_just storing and maybe running torrent15:30
frybyeActionParsnip: how to I get to use a boot option - interrupt the boot process with what key?15:31
ActionParsnipfrybye: hold shift and you can add it there by pressing E on the kernel15:31
_Ethan_and well, who knows, freaking with mame could be a choice too :P15:31
n1c0-nuXHello, i'm looking for a good ubuntu video screen capture log... Who can help me ?15:31

_Ethan_ok, np15:32
_Ethan_its not my primary goal15:32
_Ethan_my goal is to access and control it from another pc in my lan15:32
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: most stuff you can manae with web UIs and SSH (X forwarding as well as file serving)15:32
frybyeActionParsnip:  let me get this right - I psychically fit the gt240 card.. then boot the system to the ati 3000 by using nouveau.blacklist=1 and then use the nvidia-xconfig or ..?15:32
_Ethan_i really would like to install both windows and ubuntu15:32
FrankyI have a question. I just recently downloaded Ubuntu (through a USB) and it took up 37 GB of space. I then got XFCE yesterday since I have an old computer. I'm trying to update things but it says I only have 2.5GB left. Is there a way I can gain more?15:32
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: you haven't said what you will be doing on the server, just that you want to access it....15:33
_Ethan_ActionParsnip what i want to do is exactly what teamviewer does15:33
Culiforgeis jrib around?15:33
frybyeaitch - now I have it - I do the nvidia-xconfig now - and then add the gt240 and boot to that...15:33
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: once more...Why do you want to connect? What will you do once connected to the remote system? What is the purpose of connecting to the remote system?15:33
holsteinFranky: delete things... you can purge whatever you are not using... an instal should *not* take 37GB's, thats likely your data15:34
mcl0vinikonia: is there a way i can have a list of all pkgs i have so that i can reinstall them after fresh install15:34
_Ethan_ActionParsnip i will for example download files15:34
zzecool37 gb install ????15:34
zzecoolomg15:34
zzecoollol15:34
_Ethan_to my laptop from that pc15:34
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: dowload, like torrents?15:34
_Ethan_yes15:34
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: you don't need teamviewer for that15:34
_Ethan_or videos, etc15:35
FrankyHolstein:  tried that but I just got this yesterday. I don't have anything to delete. lol.15:35
_Ethan_yes that's why im looking for another choice :D15:35
_Ethan_or running Matlab, Octave15:35
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: you can use the webui in transmission to manage torrents, you can then use samba or sftp to share your file system15:35
SomelauwHi, is it safe to enable vt-x in my bios? Is there a reason this setting is enabled by default?15:35
Somelauwvirtualbox seems to require this change15:35
holsteinFranky: then you will just need to tolerate it, delete things, or mount the hard drive live and consider resizing partitions, though i would not do that without having aeverything backedup15:36
_Ethan_ActionParsnip ok15:36
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: isn't octave ran in a terminal?15:36
_Ethan_ActionParsnip yes15:36
_Ethan_it is15:37
Frankyholstein: poohey. Is their any way I can downsize the amount of space it takes Ubuntu to run? All I know is yesterday it said it would use 37GB of my space during the installation.15:37
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: so you can use putty or ssh in a terminal and connect, makes no sense to see the whole screen when you are just going to open a terminal15:37
zzecoolFranky: there is something wrong with your installation15:37
mcl0vini remember Debian had a way that you can mirror all your pkgs back to the new install15:37
zzecoolsomething terribly wrong15:37
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: this is WHY I ask what people are doing as soon as they start chatting about teamviewer etc, a LOT of the time its not needed..15:38
Frankyzzecool: I downloaded linux from a USB using Linux Pendrive (I think that's what the program is called)15:38
Culiforgewas chatting with jrib earlier about fixing a boot problem.. upon his advice I chroot'd to the not booting install but don't know what to do from there15:38
zzecoolRun system-monitor15:38
_Ethan_ActionParsnip15:38
frybyeActionParsnip: nvidia-xconfig ... "command not found...??"15:38
zzecooland check the last tab15:38
_Ethan_teamviewer is really easy to install15:39
zzecoolto see where is all this space15:39
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: running just the SSH terminal will use a lot less resources15:39
wesselHow can I move the top "system" bar to below15:39
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: easier than:  sudo apt-get install openssh-server       I doubt it heavily15:39
zzecoolwessel: you cant15:39
* Aha2Y wants Ubuntu on smartphone!!!15:39
Frankyzzecool: Is system monitor in the settings menu?15:39
wesselWhat you mean you can't?15:39
ActionParsnipAha2Y: omgubuntu have some mock ups.15:40
pk__Aha2Y: bad idea, i would say15:40
zzecoolopen the dash and type system15:40
wesselI just did an update, it used to always at the bottom of my screen15:40
Aha2YWhy Bad?15:40
_Ethan_ActionParsnip yes15:40
zzecoolit gonna reveal him self15:40
Aha2YWouldn't it be awesome?15:40
Aha2YHaving ubuntu on your phone15:40
_Ethan_click on an icon and voila!15:40
holsteinFranky: ubuntu has never taken that much for me.. are you sure this is ubuntu? and not something ubuntu based?15:40
Aha2YJust needs a bigger screen and CPU15:40
_Ethan_Aha2Y that's android :)15:40
Aha2YNoway.15:40
frybyeActionParsnip: what packets have to be installed for    nvidia-xconfig to function?15:40
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: still needs to download a deb, openssh is a command, no web browsing needed15:40
Aha2YUbuntu needs to replace Android!15:41
ActionParsnipfrybye: nvidia-current15:41
pk__Aha2Y: what is the difference15:41
ActionParsnipAha2Y: no way, android rocks15:41
pk__both are linux15:41
Aha2YAndroid is slow :(15:41
Aha2YBut ubuntu haz unity :P15:41
holsteinFranky: i would download the iso directly from http://www.ubuntu.com/ ...come here *before* downloading/installing and ask about what you want to do15:41
rlrosased15:41
Aha2Ya phone that acts more like a computer than some computers15:41
ActionParsnipAha2Y: use golauncher, flys on my GT54015:41
Frankyholstein: This is ubuntu. I downloaded it from a Linux site. Actually, from cnet.com because I was following directions on how to download it to a USB. Currently I have XFCE. Would uninstalling other enviroments help?15:41
ActionParsnip_Ethan_: in short you don't need the full desktop in any way. You can do your octave stuff via ssh which will be faster and use fewer resources15:42
holsteinFranky: good luck ! ...i routinely run ubuntu on 8gb virtual hard drives15:42
Aha2YI have a GT-I5800 and android is slow ass hell.15:42
ActionParsnipAha2Y: try golauncher ex15:42
Aha2YWith a apt market15:42
Aha2YLol golaunched :P15:42
holsteinFranky: you could have downloaded a customized version of ubuntu from somewhere else15:42
Aha2YYou are funny.15:42
holsteinFranky: you dont "download it to USB'15:43
holsteinif you would like to make a bootable USB stick, that can be done with the normal iso that i suggest you download from http://www.ubuntu.com/15:43
ActionParsnipAha2Y: try it, its smooth15:43
wesselIs it really impossible to move the position of the "email/sound/clock/user bar" ?15:43
Aha2YActionParsnip, I have15:43
Frankyholstein: I made my USB a boot device to download Ubuntu on to so I didn't need to buy the boot disk.15:43
Aha2YMy phone is just SLOW.15:43
holsteinFranky: im not suggesting you purchase anything15:44
ActionParsnipwessel: depends which desktop :)15:44
bullgard6'~$ gunzip /etc/alternatives/x-www-browser.1.gz;  gzip: /etc/alternatives/x-www-browser.1.gz: Too many levels of symbolic links' --  How to deal with this?15:44
holsteinFranky: im suggesting that the fact you have a 30+gb installation, i suspect you have downloaded *not* the normal ubuntu15:44
wesselI just did an update, I don't think my desktop changed15:44
wesselWhat is desktop?15:44
ActionParsnipwessel: do you use Unity?15:45
holsteinFranky: if that is a customized installation disk, who knows what is on it, and you would need to refer to the creator (cnet, or whoever) to ask what is ther and why15:45
wesselProbably15:45
xubuntu5anyone here use centerim?15:45
holsteinFranky: i would be comfortable with 6 or 8gb's to run ubuntu on15:45
wesselHow do I check?15:45
ActionParsnipwessel: application bar on the left?15:45
wesselYes15:45
ActionParsnipwessel: thats unity on gnome desktop15:45
ActionParsnipwessel: I'm not sure it can be moved but I've not used unity a lot15:46
holsteinFranky: you dont purchase the iso from http://www.ubuntu.com/ ,its just the *official* download, instead of what i am alleging as a custom one15:46
Frankyholstein: Oh. :( So there is a way to download an OS (in my case Ubuntu XFCE) directly to my comp.15:46
ActionParsnipwessel: you could install xfce4 and use that as yourdesktop and it will look like Gnome215:46
wesselWell I keep turning off my machine when I want to close an application, because the turn off machine is in the top right corner15:46
xubuntu5xubuntu has xfce in it15:46
holsteinFranky: xubuntu is what you would want for XFCE and ubuntu15:46
wesselwhere the [x] button of a window used to be15:46
xubuntu5xubuntu is awesome :)15:46
mgaunard_are there repositories where I can find more recent builds of the kernel?15:46
holsteinFranky: again that will take up about 5 or 6 gb's stock15:46
ActionParsnipyou can install xfce4 on Ubuntu or Kubuntu and it will be an option at login15:47
holsteinhttp://xubuntu.org/15:47
Frankyholstein: OH! THAT EXPLAINS EVERYTHING :) Thank you :) I accidentally downloaded both Ubuntu and Xubuntu. Is there a way I can uninstall Ubuntu?15:47
holsteinFranky: you dont purchase the iso from there ^^ its free... you just know its the official iso15:47
ActionParsnipso no need to install a new ubuntu, just install the package you need15:47
holsteinFranky: sure, but that wont get you 30GB"s extra15:47
Frankyholstein: I know but it'll help a little. So how do I uninstall Ubuntu and keep my Xubuntu and XFCE15:48
frybyeActionParsnip: I have installed   nvidia-current   but nvidia-xconfig   is still not being found??? sorry...15:48
aukActionParsnip: Thank you so much for that script, I was able to install my 64bit version of that java. :D15:48
holsteinFranky: if you have 30+gb's, you can uninstall a lot ...but i dont know what you have, and you'll just need to search blindly through the packages... OR, just install the official xubuntu15:48
ActionParsnipauk: nice, just tweak the script huh ;)15:48
wesselActionParsnip, can you give me some keywords, I would like to change the unity "desktop layout" but I'm not sure what is the proper naming15:49
wesselLike how is the top "bar" called?15:49
ActionParsnipfrybye: its installed with the nvidia-current package, what is the output of:   lsb_release -sc15:49
holsteinFranky: you can search in a package manager for ubuntu-desktop for example, but that is *not* going to free up 30GB's15:49
Frankyholstein: Oh okay gotcha. I got Xubuntu from my cousin yesterday. He gave me a code to type into a terminal. It then downloaded xubuntu for me. Do you want me to show you the code?15:49
frybyeActionParsnip: oneric15:49
holsteinsudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop15:49
xubuntu5you can do that?15:49
frybyee e e oneiric15:49
xubuntu5wasn't and that installs it on top of ubuntu??15:50
holsteinFranky: something like that but thats *not* 30gb's of stuff15:50
ActionParsnipwessel: try:   edit unity top bar15:50
xubuntu5anyone try cinnamon??15:50
andreas_can anyone tell me how to convince linux to  use my docking station's dvi and displayport interfaces? so far only vga and lvds1 are shown in xrandr :(15:50
holsteinFranky: i have to run... i suggest you get an offical iso and start over, but if you want to manually go through a package manger and search, im sure someone will help you get closer to a stock install :) ... enjoy!15:50
jemtHi. Are php/text files "tagged" with a specific encoding, or is the encoding given by the characters used in the document? If the latter is the case, how does programs determine what charset to use to interpret the content? Trial and error ?15:50

khalid_hi16:13
ActionParsnipFranky: same way you installed it, just using a different ISO...16:13
ActionParsnipHapos: what hardware do you have?16:13
aukFranky: Okay, what you do is this.        1. Figure out if your computer is 32bit OS or a 64bit OS (Actually, machine).           2. Decide on how you want to install Xubuntu.         CD disk or USB drive?                        3.      You then BURN CD or copy Xubuntu to your USB flash drive and    restart your computer to boot into the CD or USB.16:13

ubukoui d say starting with ubuntu is a safe choice.. very good community support.16:16
Frankyauk: which site can I download the OS from?16:17
aukFranky: Unetbootin, for linux and windows: http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/                      If you're on Ubuntu right now, just push CTRL+ALT+T    and wait for terminal window to pop up, then run this command: sudo apt-get install unetbootin16:17

Haposubukou um yeah I've experienced some problems in the past, but ummmm I am not such a fanatic gamer, WoW is just fine for me. And I think Wine will be more than enough for WoW :P Do you think Gentoo will be better for Java coding?16:18
Frankyauk: can I use the terminal in XFCE to get unebootin?16:18
SilentD97I think some people need to learn how to use Google.16:18
holsteinFranky: im unclear as to what you hae done so far.. have you installed several ubuntu's?16:18
aukFranky: Yes.       (You can also /safely/ assume that all terminals are the same for any linux distro).16:19
holsteinyou dont need to do that really... you can have ubuntu with XFCE and LXDE for example and choose between them at boot16:19
ActionParsnipHapos: WoW runs wine really well16:19
holsteinall the ubuntu's are bascially the same as far as packages, its just these cusomizations that make the difference Franky16:19
aukFranky: At least, it functions similarly. So just apt-get install unetbootin               (The word sudo     means to do this as an ADMIN, under root priveledges).16:20
ubukouHapos, i have never loaded a game on ubuntu successfully.. i havent tryied really hard.. im sure some people have been able to load many game... as for programing i am not the best one in here to answer you...16:20
holsteinyou dont have to have ubuntu and xubuntu insatlled, you can have ubuntu and install XFCE and choose between them... and if thats the case, you really wont save that much hard drive space removing unity16:20
Frankyholstein: Okay. So I downloaded Ubuntu a few days ago to my USB. I booted my USB to the comp.  installed Ubuntu. It was to slow for me so my cousin (an expert in Linux) gave me a code to get Xubuntu and now I have ubuntu and xubuntu. I want to just have xubuntu16:20
SilentD97I'm in the market for a laptop today. Any brands that cooperate particularly well with Ubuntu?16:20

holsteinFranky: if you are asking "i am running out of hard drive space, and i want to removing unity, because the installation is taking up 37GB's and i want to reclaim space" remvoving unity will *not* save that much space16:23
HaposActionParsnip: Thank you very much for your information16:23
Frankyauk: I'm sorry. I'm getting mixed up :( This is so complicated. I just don't want Ubuntu anymore. I just want Xubuntu (which I have also)16:23
aukFranky: The easiest solution is to put Xubuntu in your USB, via, unetbootin and install Xubuntu.16:23
Tm_TSilentD97: try asking in #ubuntu-offtopic perhaps (:16:23
ActionParsnipubukou: sure, Cairo dock just needs compositing, the DE is moot16:23

aukLike you previously did.16:23
Frankyauk: So the code you have me for unebootin (what is unebootin?)16:24
Frankyauk: Yes, to sum it all up, I want a fresh clean install of Xubuntu16:24

nsd_Does anyone know how to set up a guest session account on Ubuntu 10.04 (LTS)? Evidently there is a package called gdm-guest-session that handles creating temporary files and such but it must be launched from an already-running session. I noticed that in /usr/share/gdm/guest-session there appear to be some sort of guest session scripts, but I don't know anything about them. I don't want to create a permanent user account (and, say, just call16:34
nsd_it guest) and give it no password or something like that. I like the idea of lightdm's guest user account (in the latest Ubuntu) that is created temporarily. Is there something that I can do like that?16:34
pip__does anyone know what's happened to flashvideoreplacer?  I don't seem able to find it anymore16:35
nsd_Evidently there is also a .desktop file in /usr/share/xsessions related to a guest session as well.16:35
dr_willisnsd_:  seems every release they chnge how the guest session works.. sometimes you login as a normal user. switch to 'guest' then hand  the pc over to whoever.. in 11.04 you have an actual guest user  whos settings are not saved.16:37
dr_willisor was that in 11.10  i never use the feature. :) no matter what they do people seem to always hate how it works.16:38
igor_hey guys can you help me?16:38
nsd_dr_willis: Yes, I've noticed as much. I would like to know if it is possible to have a temporary guest user log in like in 11.04/11.10, except I'm on 10.04. Like I said evidently Canonical wrote scripts to make it work... Perhaps I have to write my own solution...16:38
ericusHave I've got this right? Can I use 8GB RAM with a PAE-kernel, not 64bit?16:39
ericusOr should I go for the 64bit version?16:39
ericusOr is it still very buggy?16:39
wietzehi Im booting ubuntu from pxeboot; but when I do, for some reason I do get network, but my dns lookups fail16:39
nsd_ericus: I don't know anything about PAE but I am pretty certain that with 32 bit address pointers you can't access more than 4gb16:39
wietzecan anyone tell me how I can get the dns lookup to work? the /etc/resolv.conf is sane16:39

ubukouActionParsnip, hmmm ok .. i rebooted.. what i noticed is that when i choose in lightDM what Enviroment to load there is only the option of "XFCE(previous) there, i opens all the processes i had open when i halted... is there a way to kill everything on shutdown ? that is a lightDM thing ... right ?16:40

dr_willisive seen people in here asking for that same feature to be enabled in Unity/gnome :)16:41
ubukoudr_willis, interesting thing is that it does the same thing when i load KDE...16:41

wietzehmmm16:46
wietzeActionParsnip: your version worked16:46
knjigathose should allow for gpu scaling, but the option is greyed out until you change resolutuin. Maybe it isn't there in the Linux version though.16:46
wietzeperhaps the resolv.conf is malformed?16:46
ActionParsnipwietze: basically your DNS sucks or you aren't getting DNS via DHCP16:46
wietzeActionParsnip: nono16:46
wietzeI didnt use 8.8.8.8 :)16:46
wietzeI used the one that was already in the resolv.conf16:46
wietzebut I removed all other lines16:47
ubukoudr_willis, hmm i ll check on #XFCE16:47
ActionParsnipwietze: http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using.html    use that, the file is made by network manager at boot, so use that guide and the config will stick16:47
ubukoudr_willis, thanks16:47
wietzeActionParsnip: not really no :)16:48

ubukouem, there is no way ubuntu says its a mistake.. its not. took hard work to get there .. and in the process something was improved even if we cant see it. unity might be a stepping stone for something better.. was it worth the resources spent on developing it? once again, only time will tell.17:21

MonkeyDustAlana  good idea, there's only about 300 active distro's17:25
tioxlol17:25
ActionParsnipAlana: see ubottus guides17:25
zygopteraThe authors might call it plagiarism to rename and appropriate all their packages17:25
tioxMonkeyDust is right. Balls to making your own OS these days when just visiting distrowatch.com will give you a good idea of your competition.17:25
ActionParsnipzygoptera: its not, its one of the founding principles of the OS17:25
Dr_Willisbe sort of pontless to rename 'ls' to be 'myspiffydir'17:26
ubukouEximius, sorry wrong person.....:S17:26
tioxI don't know why ls hasn't gained a dir alias yet.17:26
Dr_Willisthere is a dir  command allready in ubuntu17:26
tioxBecause it's kinda confusing to be doing dir in DOSbox, or for a WIndows user coming from Windows command line to use ls instead.17:27
Eximiusubukou: lol17:27
zygopteratiox: it's easy to make an alias17:27
ubukouSomelauw, , there is a bug filed. concernign that.. some people found that removing xserver-xorg-video-nouveau helped... google and read about it... i broken my setup trying to upgrtade.. use caution.17:27

ubukoui just used http://pastebin.com/sqESyWSK this to build docky.. anyone has any idea where it is.. doesnt seem to be in home folder...17:31
slainbybeatsanything is wring with my sound... i cant change the volume via system oO17:31
ActionParsnipSomelauw: i'd also disable the http://packages.ros.org/ repo you added17:31
AlanaAnd i can change name of programs!? its too legal?17:31
urlin2uslainbybeats, ask and if anybody know they will answer17:31
zygopterapfifo: like schduled system functions which were expected to take place, not happening and causing things to be unstable or not function at all17:31
ActionParsnipslainbybeats: if you run:  alsamixer   can you change it there?17:31
SomelauwActionParsnip: I think that package is the one which added depends on opencv.17:32
ActionParsnipSomelauw: could remove that, upgrade then reinstall it17:32
slainbybeatsi first gotta install that mixer17:32
AlanaDr_Willis, And i can change name of programs!? its too legal?17:32
AlanaDr_Willis: And i can change name of programs!? its too legal?17:32
auronandaceslainbybeats: alsamixer should be there by default17:33
SomelauwI am going to look for a way to just disable it and not remove it.17:33
slainbybeatsbut i can change in Rythmbox... it only doesnt work if i want to change it in ubuntu.. so i cant get really loud sounds out of that laptop17:33
AlanaPlease Help!17:33
MonkeyDustAlana  there's also girl-geek stuff17:33
ActionParsnipslainbybeats: the OS will tell you what you need, its part of a default install though17:33
auronandaceAlana: why do you want to make your own OS?17:33
AlanaMonkeyDust, where?17:33
pfifozygoptera, how about, replacing it with a different cron daemon, do I have any options?17:34
MonkeyDustAlana  http://www.theage.com.au/it-pro/business-it/girl-geeks-to-take-over-the-world-20110923-1kox1.html17:34
Alanaauronandace, and why not? and why Mark do it?17:34
Somelauwthanks17:34
slainbybeatsnope, it always starts the Softwarecenter, so theres no Program17:34
zygopteraIt sounds like Alana doesn't really want to make her own OS, it sounds like she just wants to change enough names so she can take credit for making an OS17:34
ubukouActionParsnip, is there a way to remove KDE and Unity and leave only XFCE on my box without breaking it ?17:34
AlanaMonkeyDust, thanks!17:34
MonkeyDustanything to please a lady17:35
slainbybeats...17:35
zygopterapfifo: what's wrong with the builtin cron daemon?17:35
nsd_Anyone know how to set the default gdm session? I now have a guest user account set up but I need to change it from gnome to fvwm.17:35
ActionParsnipubukou: the only way I can think is to first remove the qt libs, the kde apps willfail deps and be marked for uninstall17:35
Alanazygoptera, jealous?17:35
bahamashello. I'm using 64-bit ubuntu 11.04 and the sound doesn't work, except in the browser. any thoughts on how to fix this?17:35

ubottuslainbybeats: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family-friendly, polite, and professional.17:35
nsd_I see that in /usr/share/gdm/guest-session there is some magic performed with the $GDMSESSION variable but I don't know where it is set initially or what the magic does exactly. Is that set initially from gconf?17:35
aBoundI forgot I was in here hehe. :P17:35
nsd_Also I am using 10.04 LTS17:36
ubukouActionParsnip, is it recomended?17:36
ActionParsnipubukou: you will then need to compare the 2 metapackages for ubuntu-desktop and xubuntu-desktop to see which is unique to the ubuntu desktop and remove that17:36
Alanaauronandace, openforge,...17:36
pfifozygoptera, Ive never been too happy with it, so basicly just personal reasons. I am going to try removing it, if you want you can PM me your email and ill let you know how it works out.17:36
Alanaauronandace, sourceforge17:36
Dr_WillisAlana:   your example was changeing the name of the DISTRO. not the 'programs' i think17:36
ActionParsnipubukou: kde is Qt based, xfce and gnome are gtk based so its a great way to carve out kde17:36
slainbybeatsfor anyone who wants to know, i use the latest stable 11.10 release17:36
jtreminioMorning all - does anyone know of a music player that has support for youtube URLs?17:36
Dr_WillisAlana:  if you are remastering your own ubuntu, you most likely dont want to be calling it 'ubuntu' :)17:37
zygopterapfifo: no. publish your results here, so everyone can learn from your experiment17:37
slainbybeatsi love open source :D17:37
auronandaceAlana: you didn't answer my question17:37
gazzzzzzzzzaI want to rename everyting to be more manly17:37
ubukouActionParsnip, so only removing kde is recomended?17:37
gazzzzzzzzzalike OpenOffice just changed to LibreOffice17:37
gazzzzzzzzzaSo can I change it to like17:37
Seven_Six_TwoI have a desktop (11.10 amd64) that isn't on the internet. I have a laptop (11.10 amd64) that can travel and connect. Without downloading the full 40GB required to use apt-mirror, I would like to update, and if possible, download some new packages. Is there a semi-easy way to do it? I'm not new...17:37
nsd_Here's a simpler question: Does anyone know if the default GDM session is set in gconf? I can't use gdmsetup because the unlock feature does not work17:37
gazzzzzzzzzasuperManlyWordProcessorONLYforMEN ?17:37
ActionParsnipslainbybeats: can you give the output of: wget -O alsa-info.sh http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh; chmod +x ./alsa-info.sh; ./alsa-info.sh17:37
ActionParsnipslainbybeats: select to upload to the server and a URL is made, what is it?17:38
mwallacesdHi guys good morning/afternoon! If I edit the file /etc/sysctl.conf and add the line vm.swappiness=10 is it intructing the system to use how much swap according my RAM???17:38
AlanaDr_Willis, i want LibreOffice =>  MyOwnOffice, UMPlayer => MyOwnPlayer,...17:38
mcl0vinwhat will be a good practice to follow if i have two hdd each is 80GB...how can i set it up to where i can have ubuntu os in one drive and all user data in the other one , so that if i ever have to upgrade and it goes south like it did this morning i don't worry about backing up17:38
ActionParsnipubukou: why would it not be?17:38
gazzzzzzzzzaI want LibreOffice => ONLYFORMEN17:38
Alanaauronandace, sorry bad english i :( reformulire please17:38

gazzzzzzzzzaHey Alana, wanna met up in real life ?17:39
auronandaceAlana: why are you renaaming everything?17:39
Dr_WillisAlana:  i dont see the point in doing that either. change the menu item if you want. but its still just pointless.17:39
wonderingHello all.. I am running zorin.. Ubuntu based and I was wondering how to get the search bar in the windows 7 appearance mode??  Its there in gnome but not xp or 717:39
urlin2umwallacesd, it is a control of when the swap is used at points of ram use17:39
AlanaI corresponded with Stallman17:39

ubottuAlana: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!17:39
ActionParsnipmcl0vin: you set the partitioning at install time. I suggest you have /, swap and /home on one of the drives, then make a partition on the othe 80Gb drive and use it as pure user data. I doubt you will need 80Gb for /  and swap17:39
theadminwondering: We don't have those modes in Ubuntu, therefore we can't help. This is also offtopic here.17:40
theadminLjL: Yeah, I mean, unless you make a real fork... Distributing the same thing under a different name sounds fishy17:40
zygopteraHey mcl0vin! :) There are guides available for putting "/home" on a separate drive. That would probably work best17:40
