jeremiah_ Why am i not authorized in pidgin when i am the administrator?01:04

calwigIts not completed as in, the distro is not completely written to the USB. unetbootin finishes in half a second writing to the USB. Ive downloaded 2 distros. USB is brand new.01:05
WoCsame thing though, just replace /var/log with the tmp path01:05
gisliWoC: /var/log would be something like: /home/gisli/data /var/log ext4 defaults,noatime,mode=1777 0 001:06
gisliWoC: yeah but I want my logs available after restart ;)01:07

showtimei installed ts3 on 11.04 and my microphone doesnt work ... what to do ?01:08
WoCgisli ok ?01:09
gisliWoC: oh okay...do I just do that now or straight after restart? And will I still have my old logs?01:09
WoCyou can either edit that and add to fstab or just add as is to rc.local01:10
WoConce mounted /home/gisli/data will have the actuall logs, you might need to restart the syslog to have it log propperly after the mount01:12
WoCgisli you dont have to restart your computer, you may however need to send a HUP to syslog to have it logging in the new location01:13

openI've just gotten a virtual image for 12.04 the alpha release. My question is: will it keep receiving updates normally -- that effectively, when the real release is out, I will effectively have had the updates anyway to not have to not get the new image?01:46
bazhang!final | open01:46
ubottuopen: If you install a development version of Ubuntu Precise and keep up with package updates, then you will be upgraded to the official release of 12.04 when it comes out. To make sure, type « sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade » in a terminal.01:46
EruadanHello, i used ubuntu lucid as a server. Now i decided to install lucid also, in my local VM, so i have the same system. I installed already the lucid in the vm. Now i just want a basic view, as i want a file manager and a browser there. I decided to install openbox. I installed openbox with sudo  apt-get install openbox, i also updated the system, but i do not have a window after rebooting...I'm sure x was installed as a dependency, what am i missi01:46

mufasaumm..that was only half my message lol02:08
xanguaJimmy__: latest version no because a kernel issue, it's supposed to be fixed on 12.0402:08
Eruadanrofl, I didn't have xorg installed! omg, someone told me that with apt-get openbox, i would get all the rest, as dependencies, omg...ty for the link ^^02:08
holsteinJimmy__: i would say, out-of-the-box.. no... likely much less depending on your hardware... with certain hardware it could be much better02:08
xanguaguest_: it's on the ubuntu cd/usb, you can enable the cd from sources02:08

Eruadanxangua, folllowing the tutorial you gave me, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ServerGUI , i installed everything, but there's no login manager in here,only xauth,xorg and openbox. why i still cannot see any "window" ?do i still need a login manager?maybe slim?02:15
holsteinmufasa: depends.. if you are 11.10 and above, i believe thats gnome3 in the repos02:15
xanguaEruadan: xtartx i believe02:15
mufasayes it is 11.1002:15
xanguastartx *** sorry02:15
Eruadani see, i need to start x02:16
holsteinmufasa: you cant have both.. you can install what ubuntu has always provided, which is the most current version of gnome at release time02:16
holsteinmufasa: i think most find XFCE to be arguably the most like gnome202:16
mufasawhat is xfce?02:17

ActionParsnipDarkStar: its always been easy here... and its always been free03:40
DarkStarcompaired to the other 2 possible os's you could probably go with03:40
DarkStarim having issues with booting but this laptop is ancient03:41
Eruadanfuck yeah!ubuntu is the only decent distro around03:41
DarkStarwell i still like other distros03:41
DarkStarbut this one is really getting impressive as far as linux goes03:41
ActionParsnipDarkStar: I can name 303:41

DarkStarjust saying mainstream iphone junkies03:43
Eruadanlxde is lovelly for my shity lappy,inside the  virtual box03:43
quixotedonActionParsnip: what other distros do you think is most likely to be used?? fedora? openSuse?03:43
ActionParsnipDarkStar: hiku exists and has an active community. It was formally BeOS03:43
DarkStari spent 20 years on irc and bbs and have agorophobia so ive used a few distros in that time lol03:43
ActionParsnipquixotedon: whichever the user deems fit for their needs03:43
=== solareq is now known as macam
quixotedonActionParsnip: haiku is quite a name, I think I once read about it somewhere03:44
DarkStari liked slack, freebsd & redhat but ubuntu is gaining ground as all around great stuff for me03:44
Eruadanthe only distro i could use other than ubuntu, is archlinux, but arch, is really about manual configs, and i don't have the time for that, but i would love to see ubuntu team picking up the good things about arch03:44
WoCBeOS was pretty neat :)03:44
ActionParsnipquixotedon: I started on Mandrake and Gentoo. Great days03:44
MK`I was told Nautilus can be used with an SVN, how can I do this?03:44
quixotedonDarkStar: despite the success, many don't like the change to unity though03:44
irbdaDarkStar: archlinux is quite good too. I agree with you, ubuntu is very *user-friendly* and it is good for a lazy man like me.03:45
ActionParsnipquixotedon: you don't have to use unity...03:45
DarkStari havent had decent enough hardware to see that yet03:45
quixotedonActionParsnip: aaah, mandrake!!! i like that... the first install at my univ though, and also the knoppix that i hung around with :)03:45
Eruadanit's not only about lazy dude, if you write code, you DON'T have the time to manually setup things...imho, arch, is for doesn't have nothing else to do03:45
ActionParsnipquixotedon: xpud gets use a lot here too. its snappy03:46
guest1201ActionParsnip: C556CA: 802.11b/g WLAN03:46
guest1201ActionParsnip: im not sure if i found the name of that correctly. im not the best when it comes to using the terminal yet03:46
quixotedonActionParsnip: and i can't find the reason why people don't like unity, because for a newbie like me, it's just something better than the other two famous OS03:46
ActionParsnipguest1201: ok, can you give a pastebin of the output of: lspci; lsusb; cat /etc/lsb-release03:47
ActionParsnipquixotedon: you don't have to use it, people don't like many parts of their OS (I always strip out Firefox), and its all changable03:47
ActionParsnipquixotedon: You can install xfce4 and use XFCE, there is no unity (by default) in XFCE03:48
guest1201ActionParsnip: not really a paste, ill have to type everything up, im on two seperate computers so give me a sec :)03:48
quixotedonActionParsnip: i have an old pc using pentium 2 back at 'to be thrown away stuff' compartment, any idea on resurrecting it using ubuntu?03:48
MK`I was told Nautilus can be used with an SVN, how can I do this? Is it integrated or do I need to install a plugin? Which do you guys recommend?03:48
ActionParsnipguest1201: its gonna be a lot, just grab the lines that relate to the wifi03:48
quixotedonActionParsnip: or maybe other distros?03:49
ActionParsnipquixotedon: Lubuntu maybe, or puppy, slitaz, tinycore, puppy03:49
quixotedonhmm, quite interesting to try :)03:49

ActionParsnipguest1201: yes03:51
Jeremy3Dquixotedon, not on more wireless networks (home, my parents house, etc) but i can connect to one at a mcdonalds. lol03:51
quixotedonJeremy3D: what's the message?03:51
Jeremy3DWhen I look under the options "Available to all users" isn't checked, so I check it but nothing03:52
zykotick9MK`: i've certainly never used it, but does ubuntu have "rabbitvcs-nautilus - Nautilus extension for RabbitVCS"?03:52
MK`Yes, I am going to try it now zykotick903:52
zykotick9MK`: sorry VCS vs SVN03:52

Jeremy3Dmaybe I'm not signing in as admin or something.  anyone else know?03:54
quixotedonguest1201: it's still possible03:55
ActionParsnipguest1201: the install CD can be used to install packages from so you can do it all offline, its just a little harder. The guide shows you what to do. If you can get a wired link you will simply be offeredf the driver03:55
quixotedonJeremy3D: try signing as an admin03:55
ActionParsnipJeremy3D: run:  sudo lshw -C network    what is the product line of the device?03:55
Jeremy3Dnot sure how. as far as I know there's only one username to sign on in this computer. i'll check though...03:55
quixotedonguest1201: yeah! i also came up to a suggestion of using wired link first.. :)03:56

bc81hellooo again.  i'm trying to sort out some trouble with permissions when mounting an ext3 formatted USB drive connected to a WDTV Live.  it's my understanding that the share used samba, so is accessing it with cifs causing the permission issues?03:57
quixotedonguest1201: then, try the cd installation or the flash disk option03:57
ActionParsnipJeremy3D: give it time, your pci bus is slow03:57
Jeremy3DActionParsnip, ok it's up. what do you want to know?03:57
ActionParsnipJeremy3D: the product line, just like i said earlier03:57
bc81or is there some special mount command to make it work with full read/write capabilities?03:58

ubottuJeremy3D: 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/fixsudo04:00

guest1201ActionParsnip: ok so i clicked on oneiric 11.10, do i click the network tab next?04:01
TynachHi, in Unity 2D, my settings have gotten screwed up. I only have one virtual desktop - how do I change this?04:02
TynachUsing 11.10 here.04:02
ActionParsnipguest1201: read the guide.04:02
ActionParsnipTynach: install compizconfig-settings-manager04:03
ActionParsnipTynach: and under gereneral you can set the desktop size04:03
TynachActionParsnip, this is Unity 2D, not Unity.04:03
TynachUnity is a compiz plugin, and thus has it's settings controlled through Compiz.04:03
TynachHowever, Unity 2D is not.04:03
TynachActionParsnip, I was hoping to find some setting in either gconf or dconf, but I've not found it thus far.04:04
ActionParsnipTynach: i believe it uses the same config in parts, worth trying04:05
TynachActionParsnip, I just tried. Desktop config in Compiz is 2x2, with 4 total.04:06
TynachNo change in behavior.04:06
ActionParsnipTynach: gah04:06
TynachIs multiple desktops handled by Metacity in Unity 2D?04:07
TynachOr is it handled by the QT thingy they did?04:07
TynachOk, fixed it.04:09
ActionParsnipTynach: there used to be an app on the panel to manage it. Not sure how its handled in Unity04:09
zykotick9Tynach: nautilus actually managed the desktop04:10
ActionParsnipTynach: what was the magic bullet?04:10
zykotick9Tynach: SORRY i'm not sure that's try in unity!!04:10
TynachI found a key for "num_workspaces" in "/apps/metacity/general" using gconf-editor.04:10
guest1201ActionParsnip: Its telling me to download drivers from maverick for ubuntu 11.10 im really lost haha04:10
TynachAnd that worked.04:10
BPowerHow can I create an sftp user that has access only to a specific dir and not anything else?04:10
TynachSo, ActionParsnip, zykotick9, it seems Metacity holds the number of desktops setting.04:11
TynachSee ya later!04:11
ActionParsnipTynach: strange04:11
ActionParsnipTynach: glad you got the gold04:11
TynachActionParsnip, it's not strange really. It's the window manager, controls where windows on the desktop go - you can put windows on different desktops, so it makes sense for it to control it. I just skipped over that key before because it was labeled 'workspaces' instead of 'desktops'.04:11
TynachLater, all!04:12
ActionParsnipBPower: it will get the access like a local user on the system, so you can give it access via the standard linux groups04:12

ActionParsnipJeremy3D: if you run:  sudo rfkill list   is it blocked in any way?04:22
Jeremy3Dno on both04:22
ActionParsnipJeremy3D: ok do you have a switch or shortcut to enable / disable wifi?04:23
DrPainzI'm new to Ubuntu, just installed it yesterday and I am trying to get used to it04:24
ActionParsnipJeremy3D: Fn+F204:24
Jeremy3Dwhen I click on the network icon in the top right hand corner, I can enable and disable wireless04:24
Jeremy3DActionParsnip, yea that does the same thing. it's on04:25
ActionParsnipJeremy3D: if you run:  sudo iwlist scan     do you see access points?04:25
Sachhow do i edit the permissions of a file to 'read and write'? It doesn't let me. Can i do so as sudo?04:25
DrPainzdoes anyone have an excellent online tutorial/website to get the most out of ubuntu?  I really don't know where to start, especially in the terminal04:26
DrPainzlike I don't know what the commands mean (i.e. sudo, etc)04:26
ActionParsnipDrPainz: i suggest you just use the OS, you'll learn just like you learned windows04:26
ActionParsnip!manual | DrPainz there is this04:26
ubottuDrPainz there is this: The Ubuntu Manual will help you become familiar with everyday tasks such as surfing the web, listening to music and scanning documents. With an emphasis on easy to follow instructions, it is suitable for all levels of experience. http://ubuntu-manual.org/04:26
Jeremy3DActionParsnip,  lo Interface doesn't support scanning.  eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.  eth1 Scan completed: Home (which is my access point)04:27
ActionParsnipDrPainz: I wouldn't get bogged down with what commands mean til you use/need them04:27
ActionParsnipJeremy3D: bingo, your wifi is picking up as eth1, network manager expects wlan004:27
ActionParsnipJeremy3D: get a wired connection, install wicd and uninstall network manager then reboot04:28
ActionParsnipJeremy3D: the driver is working or you wouldn't see the SSID :)04:28
Sachhow do i edit the permissions of a file to 'read and write'? It doesn't let me. Can i do so as sudo?04:28
DrPainzwell, I'm an advanced user with windows, know Mac somewhat... but wanted to familiarize myself with linux stuff, since I'd like to be a network director somedays and found out linux is best for running networks and stuff04:28
irbdaDrPainz: Don't miss the "Ubuntu Software Center" to install any programs you are interested. :-)04:28
ActionParsnipSach: if you want write access run:  gksudo gedit filename    for a text file (for example)04:28
Jeremy3DActionParsnip, sweet. do you have info on installing wicd04:29
ActionParsnipDrPainz: 'advanced user'? Do you manage data centres and such?04:29
Al_nz1errm: http://pastebin.com/vhvT2vja - help pls04:29
Jeremy3Dnevermind found it04:29
SachActionPArsnip, so the location of the file doesnt matter for that command?04:29
ActionParsnipJeremy3D: use software centre04:29
ActionParsnipSach: yes, you type the full path, or if the terminal is in the same folder you can just name it04:29
DrPainzI'm not sure what you mean ActionParsnip04:30
ActionParsnipDrPainz: just curious of your 'advanced user' of windows claim..04:30
numpybeen a while since I have used ATI cards.. is the fglrx driver stable now?04:31
ActionParsnipJeremy3D: wicd is a lot more flexible than network manager, so you can tell it to use eth1 as wifi and it will happen04:31
DrPainzehh... I'm just really awesome with Windows is all I meant haha04:31
DrPainzI'm the guy a lot of people turn to when they have a computer or network problem in this area04:32
irbdaActionParsnip: I'm an advanced windows user too from the period of win3.1 to win2k  :D04:32
ActionParsnipDrPainz: probably desktop, if you saw what we do where I work you'd think twice ;)04:32
DrPainzwhat did you mean by data centres?04:32
ActionParsnipDrPainz: huge building with racks of servers all working together04:33
DrPainzoh when I was in college we've had projects like that.  I did assist in the building of a mini-supercomputer, consisted of like like 5 or 10 computers in a small room04:33

drommynvidia 6800gt04:35

SleepingPrgmrI'm trying to install Oracle Java 6 and I''m following this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java help documentation here by using the manual method which is linked here http://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/java.  It seems to have worked correctly and I can type "java" in the bash shell but some of my programs which says I need something called JAVA_HOME set and I'm not sure what that may mean.04:45
lahwranirbda: it'd be fuzz, for the most part04:45
ActionParsniplahwran: cat /dev/eth0 > /dev/dsp    maybe04:45
lahwranActionParsnip: network devices are not files04:45
ActionParsniplahwran: in Linux, EVERYTING is a file04:45
lahwranthey're the only device that is an exception to that rule04:45
lahwranlook it up04:45
ActionParsniplahwran: take your pick: http://duckduckgo.com/?q=in+Linux+everyting+is+a+file&kl=uk-en&kp=104:46
earspliTits a lil more complicated then that04:46
earspliTdepends on how you want to hear the sound04:46
earspliTyou'd have to set the bit rate and sample size and such to match up04:46

lahwranearspliT: simple enough, yes?04:48
ActionParsnipguest1201: sudo dpkg -i filename.deb04:48

hayloActionParsnip, can he type gdebi *filename ?04:49
Ben64guest1201: what are you installing? certain things can be dangerous04:49
ActionParsniphaylo: not sure, i've always used dpkg04:49
haylook i should try that04:50
ActionParsnipguest1201: I suggest you run:  sudo apt-get -f install      to pull in deps if needed04:50
haylodpkg is what gdebi is built from i guess04:50
ActionParsniphaylo: makes sense04:50
earspliTlahwran: depends on what the data file looks like lolol04:50
lahwranthere's no possible data file that wouldn't play represented like that :|04:51
earspliTlahwran: i've never tried it with binary data before, but if you could get the data into a buffer of some sort it would work04:51
earspliTbasically, take incoming wireless data and set a word boundary04:52
earspliTits a stupid idea to begin with04:52
lahwranyeah okay fine04:52
earspliTand would take some time coding the alsa API04:52
lahwranit will just sound like white noise04:52
earspliTthat IS all it is04:52
hayloyes with a billion possibilties of nothing04:52
ActionParsniplahwran: yes but thats what my command does, which is what you asked for and why I gave it04:53
earspliTyou might as well just play /dev/random04:53
lahwranActionParsnip: no, it doesn't! did you try it? there is no "eth0" file!04:53

lahwranfor the last time, there isn't an eth0 device. if I was writing it myself I'd have to grab some packet sniffing code from somewhere and use that to get the data04:54

xxOGATAIxxi've been looking for a global menu app in lxde... i actually found one, in *.tar.gz package... i used alien and turned it into a *.deb and installed it with GDebi (because ./configure didn't run)... but now i can't use it, it doesn't appear in the "add elements" part of the panel05:02
earspliTirc.ofdc.net #lxde05:02
earspliT^^^thats the primary channel05:02

thetinyjesusjust a few days for me, im starting to like it05:15
EvilResistancethetinyjesus, many of us have gotten used to unity.  those that refuse to like unity use gnome-shell or the non-unity stuff.  Or in my case, KDE xD05:15
haylogot my purple side bar05:15
harsh343werder, i have net connect usb and i want to share internet on another computer05:15
thetinyjesusEvilResistance: yeah, i looked up gnome 3 it seemed to be more of the same as unity, and kde wasn't my flavor so just going to stick with it. everything seems to be running fine05:16

kelvinplz correct me if i m wrong06:37
theadminurlin2u: It's not06:37
kelvincant i install 12.0406:37
theadminkelvin: You ARE wrong, 12.04 is NOT released. It will be released in April.06:37
theadminkelvin: The Ubuntu versioning system is YY.MM06:38

kelvinso is it wrong informaiton06:38
ActionParsnipkelvin: it doesn't matter what ANY site says. It's not out and its in Beta06:38
aeon-ltdthe only official source is canonical06:38
irbdaso after 100years the version number will be repeated06:39
cfhowlettkelvin: distrowatch is not official **buntu information.  see http://www.howtoforge.com/enabling-compiz-fusion-on-ubuntu-11.10-oneiric-ocelot06:39

AngabladeThank you theadmin. Am I allowed to idle here until the process is complete?06:45
cfhowlettfroxt: nevermind I see it now. you're going from 10.10 to 11.04??06:45

AngabladeOkay, thanks.06:45
theadmin!who | Angablade, just so you familiarize with the general webiquette of IRC06:46
ubottuAngablade, just so you familiarize with the general webiquette of IRC: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)06:46
PhilOk, back now.06:46
froxtAny more suggestions?06:48
cfhowlettfroxt: I can't understand why you would be getting this error on a 10.10 to 11.04 upgrade.  Then again, I'm still on 10.04 as I only do LTS releases.  Please restate the question for the channel.  It's a new one to me.06:48
Angabladetheadmin, Thank you very much. I will update you on the progress when it does something more than load..06:49
theadminfroxt: Try removing any third-party repos (i.e. PPAs) and packages.06:49
froxtits simple, last night I install ubunu 10.10 version. and then i check for the update and it shows that 11.04 is available to install, so i click upgrade, but while calculating it shows this error.06:50
froxtok admin ill try that now06:50
theadminfroxt: I suggest you just install 11.10 from scratch if there isn't anything important there and you don't have much customizations06:50

cfhowlettfroxt: you might also give thought to going with LTS only as more polishing goes into those releases06:52
vsyncfroxt try apt-get clean and run it again06:52
vsyncthere might be broken packages in the cache06:52
froxtI would like to add a little infor about my self, Im new to ubuntu06:52
theadminfroxt: Then it'd be simplier to just reinstall to the newest release (that is, 11.10)06:53

theadminAngablade: Well, actually, since you can't restart via Unity anymore (since it's removed), run "sudo reboot" in the terminal06:54
froxtI'll just install 11.10 direct from downloaded iso06:54
ActionParsnipfroxt: gives a cleaner OS, feels like a new jumper :)06:55
vsyncActionParsnip without actually understanding the problem. props06:55
vsyncit's the ubuntu-wayh06:55
theadminvsync: Yeah, Ubuntu never got release upgrades right. I honestly don't understand their system with "releases", rolling OSs feel much clean, but... If you use Ubuntu, then stick to their ways. If you don't like them, switch :P06:56
ActionParsnipvsync: Ive always clean installed. I find I get fewer issues06:56

North_ I am trying to install Ubuntu using USB installer. but I faced the problem whlie running the Universial USB installer. the error message is "Cannot open output file : autorun.inf" Please HELP?06:58
vsynctheadmin & ActionParsnip yeah sure. The problem was most likely corrupted packages in the cache, i.e. shutdown at download or the likes. But sure =)06:58
ActionParsnipkelvin: so the icons on the desktop are too big?06:58

kelvinyes Action prasnip06:58
kelvinall icons06:59
theadminvsync: Actually it's got nothing to do with package cache, it's ignored when doing release upgrades. The problem is very likely third party repos :P06:59
North_kelvin: I already format USB driver.06:59
ActionParsnipkelvin: what GPU do you use?06:59
kelvinhow to check GPU06:59

TanvirHello everyone, how can I mount all drives at start-up in Ubuntu? I am using 11.10.07:01
savanteliteI am using an old wiki page for an newer system, how do I find /etc/dhcpd.conf on my newer system?07:01
rhin0i just want apps clickeable from a taskbar07:01
theadminvsync: I can, because, well, packages in the cache are for the current release, not for the new one. It won't deal with them since they ain't the right release.07:01
ActionParsnipkelvin: i'm not too good with intel things. All I can suggest is make sure you are fully updated07:01
Jordan_U!fstab | Tanvir07:01
ubottuTanvir: 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 !Partitions07:01
rhin0none of this having to type to find it07:01
rhin0the taskbar always there - a panel07:01
kelvinits fully updated07:01
theadminrhin0: Try XFCE07:01
theadmin!xubuntu | rhin007:01
ubotturhin0: Xubuntu is Ubuntu with Xfce instead of !GNOME. More info at http://www.xubuntu.org and http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/ - To install from Ubuntu: « sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop » - Join #xubuntu for support - See also: !Ubuntu and !Xubuntu-Channels07:01
TanvirJordan_U, thank you. I am reading.07:02
Jordan_UTanvir: You're welcome.07:02
theadminrhin0: KDE? LXDE? There are many alternatives to Unity07:02
PhilOk, I have the Broadcom BCM4311, which means I need the STA drivers.  Since I have no internet access under ubuntu currently, I'll need to follow the 'now internet' instructions.  Will those work since I didn't use a CD to install?07:02
rhin0xfce gave me problems on my hardware (11.10)07:02
rhin0can't use 10.0407:02
Phil*no internet instructions07:02
rhin0why can#t you get an app with one click?07:02
vsynctheadmin two different versions are not able to use some packages of the same version? Or is the apt-system so dumb it'll just pull same stuff out of the new repo anyway?07:02
rhin0thats absolutely ridiculous - the panel was essential07:03
cfhowlettPhil boot windows, download the broadcom linux sta , save to usb and reboot ubuntu.07:03
theadminvsync: Yeah, even if the versions are identical (e.g. "2.5-natty" and "2.5-oneiric") it will pull the oneiric one out07:03
theadminrhin0: Install gnome-fallback07:03
rhin0what absolute GARBAGE unity desktop is07:03
ActionParsnipPhil: the install CD can do what yuo need07:04
Philcfhowlett, that makes a whole lot of sense.  And that'll teach me to leave my usb at home when I decide to install ubuntu  while at work.07:04
Phili don't have teh install CD, ActionParsnip.07:04
PhilI did the Wubi install.07:04
ActionParsnipPhil: wubi makes no difference to your situation07:05
vsynctheadmin well in that case, the same should apply for 3rd party repos so I can't see the problem being there either07:05
cfhowlettPhil fwiw: I went through this process with my bcm4313...and if I can figure this stuff out, anyone can07:05
pehdendo you know a program for linux like nero 6 for windows07:05
theadminvsync: How can it find out the new repos for third parties? That'd be a complicated process... It doesn't do that xD07:05
ActionParsnipPhil: you can mount the install CD inside your ubuntu install and use it as a repository07:05
cfhowlettpehden: brasero07:05
vsynctheadmin yes and in that case it just ignores them, no?07:05
theadminpehden: Brasero, K3b, xfburn07:06
pehdencfhowlett does it do menus07:06
Philcfhowlett: I believe ya, I just don't have my usb with me.07:06
theadminvsync: No, it throws that error at ya and waits till you resolve it by hand07:06
theadminvsync: Silly I know07:06
ActionParsnipPhil: you can download the ISO in Wnidows and then access your ntfs partition via the /host folder07:06
vsyncwell, i switched out of debian-based stuff because of dpkg, but that's just crap07:06
vsyncsuper duper crap07:06
cfhowlettpehden: no idea but it will burn disc just fine07:06

ActionParsnipsherif: you can run@:  gksudo nautilus     and do it that way, it's really not necessary, just use TAB to complete the folder name, why do you need to use the mouse. I already gave you the command??07:15
ActionParsniptheadmin: parted is smarter and shows partition types properly07:15
sherifActionParsnip because i may forget this command later07:15

ActionParsniptheadmin: true but the -l option gives more detail than fdisk -l ;)07:17
theadminJordan_U: True, just saying :D07:17
sherifActionParsnip is there other types of remove07:17
ActionParsnipsherif: it's rm -r   not rm- r07:17

Stanley00sherif: you can use "apropos", ex: "apropos copy"07:22
sheriftheadmin thx07:22
Stanley00krised: I dont know, and I dont think it is possible07:23

sherifstanley00 apropos stands for?07:23
Stanley00sherif: I dont know either ;), ask "whatis apropos" =))07:24
krisedtheadmin i might try that. Though Ive found that uninstalling lightDM and installing GDM will bootch the system if i attempt to remastersys it back into an ISO.. the fresh iso when burned to a disc will not boot (hangs after checking battery state )07:24
theadminkrised: gdm is honestly really, really weird.07:24
krisedso finally i found that its due to gdm messing up this. cause if i just stick to lightdm it works07:24

krisedsherif you can more or less count on a default ubuntu 11.10 install to open just about any common windows file yes07:29
theadminkrised: Also, uh, remastersys is broken/abandoned/deprecated I beleive07:29
sherifkrised didnt get u07:30
krisedtheadmin hmm its updated still though... i belive due to the many demands for it..07:30

Stanley00krised: if that's old, how about install lubuntu? and it looks like window somehow07:32
theadminsherif: Run "gksu nautilus" and then you'll have a filemanager with full access to all files. But that's somewhat... risky07:32
krisedStanley00 lubuntu ?? never heard of it but ill look at it.07:32
Stanley00rick_: I think this channel works 24/2407:32
theadminkrised: I say try Lubuntu too :) It looks like Windows 95-98-ish07:33
sherifkrised theadmin cool actually i like using the terminal07:33
krisedwin 95 ?? yuuck07:33
theadminkrised: Except... not as ugly :P07:33
Stanley00rick_: I mean 24 hours a day :D07:33
theadminkrised: But I mean, by the style of GUIs and such07:33
theadminkrised: http://lubuntu.net07:33
Angablade24/24 as in 24 hours a day. 24 days a week?07:33
sherifis there other terminals better than default one?07:33
rick_oh well it seems the real experts are not on very often07:34
krisedsherif i learned linux from scratch.. having two computers.. one with a small harddrive and another with windows so i could google up stuff whenever i bootched my system and had to reinstall.. after reinstalling it like 2-300 times i got the hang of it.07:34
krisedsherif there are about 1500 diffrent distros of linux.. give em a try.. just dont try suicidelinux untill youre really hardcore though07:34
theadminlol suicidelinux07:35
BrandonNoletWooow, love how the channels with the most users are the linux ones :P07:35
theadminrick_: You just ask your question and we try to help07:35
krisedtheadmin yeah.. you dont know tha tone ?07:35
Angabladethreads bleading all over the ram?07:35
sherifkrised its ok i have windows 7 installed too if i destroyed ubuntu its ok07:35
theadminkrised: I know it, I would never try that xD07:35
scientesI plugged a few usb devices into my apple keyboard, and they show up with lsusb, however my user account (non-privlidged) does not see them07:35
scienteswhat is going on?07:35
rick_ok im trying to get debugging tool i typed in terminal  man apt get  and i dont know what to do next07:35
theadminrick_: Debugging tool for what?07:36
Stanley00rick_: debug with gdb?07:36
sherifkrised do u know how to make flash games work faster on ubuntu?07:36
krisedsherif you might wanna try it inside a virtual machine.. also take a backup of your virtual machine so you can recover fast if it gets slaughtered.07:36
rick_yup gdb07:36
Angablade"sudo apt-get install <app name>07:36
ubuntu23421good morning07:36
theadminrick_: sudo apt-get install gdb07:36
krisedsherif hmm no. ive encounterd problems more like flash running too fast07:36
i_is_brokescientes, try going in as admin and adding them to the proper groups.07:36
sherifkrised that seems complicated07:36
scientesi_is_broke, who to proper groups?07:36
ubuntu23421I have one question maybe very easy to solv07:36
BrandonNoletHow to update from 11.10 to 12.04 without reinstall?07:37
Jordan_Uscientes: What do you mean by "does not see them"? What type of USB devices, and where do you expect them to be listed?07:37
Angabladetheadmin, btw the process is finished and I am now happy as a clam. You made my day.07:37
Stanley00!pangolin | BrandonNolet07:37
ubottuBrandonNolet: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) will be the sixteenth release of Ubuntu. Codename announcement here: http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/784 | Discussion and support in #ubuntu+107:37
theadminBrandonNolet: update-manager -d # But note that 12.04 is not released and not supported.07:37
theadminAngablade: Aww thank you :D07:37
scientesjordan, i_is_broke do i need to be part of "plugdev" group? this is 10.0407:37
theadminubuntu23421: Ask your question first.07:37
BrandonNoletI understand that it's not released and thanks for the info :)07:37
i_is_brokescientes, you have to add them (regular user) so they can use it.07:37
Stanley00ubuntu23421: just ask your question.07:37
ubuntu23421NOOB HERE07:37
scientesjordan, i_is_broke to what groups?07:38
i_is_brokescientes, yup07:38
rick_gdb is already newest version so i got it already?????07:38
krisedsherif its not really. but let me tell you this. the more you use terminal and learn the various commands.. that and google when you need to do somthing you dont know.. then you get the hang of linux very fast actually07:38
Stanley00rick_: yep07:38
scientesi_is_broke, plugdev is the one?07:38
ubuntu23421i have a problem with the lcd of my laptop07:38
scientesthx, i will ask the administrator07:38
Angabladerick_, try uninstalling it then reinstalling it. That always worked for me.07:38
theadminscientes: plugdev, scanner, audio and power are the groups you normally have to be in.07:38
rick_how do i use it???? where do i find it07:38
theadminrick_: If you don't know how to use it why do you need it -_-07:39
Stanley00rick_: just run "gdb /path/to/yourapp"07:39
i_is_brokescientes, ya07:39
sherifkrised yh i guess so my bro told me it all depends on terminal n someone here sent me a pdf files of commands so i will study :)07:39
werderubuntu23421: what's wrong with it?07:39
ubuntu23421It's broke07:39
Angabladeubuntu23421, what seems to be the problem?07:39
scientestheadmin, power and scanner dont exist on this computer (10.04)07:39
werderubuntu23421: so? Is is a cracked screen?07:39
i_is_broketheadmin, thanks its been a while since i have had to add a non user. lol07:39
ubuntu23421so i installed ubunto with an external lg lcd tv07:39
ubuntu23421it goes perfect07:39
theadminscientes: Ah I guess Ubuntu differs from normal distros in here as well07:39
rick_i need to learn07:40
ubuntu23421but once i install drivers from nvidia07:40
ubuntu23421no picture is displayed on the tv monitor07:40
scientestheadmin, what do mean as "normal distros" debian and red hat worlds are differn't across the board07:40
Stanley00rick_: then, you should read the gdb manual on gnu.org07:40
krisedsherif well you can do that.. but nothing beats learning by doing.. whenever you need to do somthing.. you can just about always do it in a terminal as well as in GUI mode.. just reading pfd with commands wont really teach you anything07:40
theadminscientes: Most distros (Debian inclusive actually) have those groups, others do too (Arch, Gentoo etc) so...07:40
werderubuntu23421: is it a laptop or desktop?07:40
sherifkrised wut is GUI mode?07:41
Angabladeubuntu23421, try removing the cord and replacing it. It might just need to sence that the came is in. Then auto switch like alot of other tv's and cards to.07:41
scientestheadmin, yuck07:41
theadminscientes: Huh?07:41
scientesthat it would be differn't without a good reason07:41
krisedsherif thats whenever youre using your mouse.. CLI is commandline (typing) GUI is graphic userinterface. (using mouse)07:41
scientescause they all use PolicyKit07:41
ubuntu23421it doesnt even work with fn+f7 keys07:42
sherifkrised cool and wut is kde?07:42
i_is_brokeoh wait your using a mac right07:42
ubuntu23421its a sony vayo07:42
Angabladeubuntu23421, the video card might just need to detect the tv. Have you tried pulling the cable out and reconnecting it?07:42
theadminscientes: Yeah PolicyKit/ConsoleKit is evil >.<07:42
i_is_brokescientes, sorry forgot to highlight. i dont know what else  is in mac setup either.07:42
werderubuntu23421: so the laptop screen works fine07:42
AngabladeWhat type of connection is it?07:42
krisedsherif kds and gnome are just two graphic ways of showing you your linux.. there are many diffrent kinds of xsessions (thats the graphic part of your linux)07:42
ubuntu23421no i cant see nothing on the lcd07:42
kelvini couldnt able to join room :07:43
omeYo, anyone knows a good PDF2CHM ?07:43
kelvini got following error07:43
rick_i cant find gdb manual on gnu.org07:43
ubuntu23421of the laptop07:43
scientestheadmin, are they inseperable? i know fedora is deprecating ck07:43
Angabladeubuntu23421, what type of connection were you using to connect to the tv?07:43
sherifkrised u mean i can use kde or gnome instead of GUI?07:43
ubuntu23421vga dvi cable07:43
theadminscientes: I'm not sure, but they're annoying for sure... I'd rather just use sudo for ALL permission management.07:43
Stanley00rick_: http://www.gnu.org/software/gdb/documentation/?07:43
Jordan_Urick_: What are you trying to debug and why?07:43
krisedsherif basicly its like in windows where you decide how things should be presented to you.. some like it simple (gnome) others like it like windows (kde) and others like it ugly and unusable (unity)07:43
scientestheadmin, I don't think that is good07:43
Angabladeubuntu23421: Intresting. Does the tv change on boot up?07:43
kelvin##linux Cannot send to channe07:43
ubuntu23421i dont see nothing until it starts the ubunto setup07:43
sherifkrised cuz someone told me that kde is much faster than gui07:43
theadminscientes: Maybe, but at least it's simple...07:43
krisedsherif well kde IS an gui really07:44
scientesI think PolicyKit is good,07:44
kelvin##linux Cannot send to channel07:44
krisedtry google KDE and look at pictures07:44
kelvinhi help : ##linux Cannot send to channe07:44
theadminkelvin: Register your nickname, you07:44

ubottukelvin: Information about registering your nickname: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InternetRelayChat/Registration - Type « /nick <nickname> » to select your nickname. Registration help available by typing /join #freenode07:44
sherifkrised oh ok wut am i now? :D07:44
sherifkrised how do i know im kde or unity07:44
Angabladeubuntu23421, have you tried any other monitors or tv's?07:45
ubuntu23421after I install the drivers for nvidia graphic board it only displays the broken laptop display, i hear sound of the so booting but no picture07:45
werderubuntu23421: did the laptop screen work before you installed the nvidia drivers?07:45
krisedsherif usually it tells you when you boot the system.. if you installed a standard ubuntu and you got a sidebar panel to your left side its unity.07:45
kelvinhow to register nickname07:45
ubuntu23421it aint going to work i know07:45
theadminkelvin: ubottu just told you. /join #freenode and ask there07:46
Stanley00kelvin: try ask it in #freenode or search the web07:46
Angabladewerder, no it was broken when he was installing. He was using a tv throught a vga cable to a tv.07:46
krisedsherif ubuntu these days come with unity (the ugly and unusable gui) but you can always install gnome-fallback session and boot into that as well07:46
werderAngablade: ah ok. missed that bit.07:46
sherifkrised well i get a list on startup like 5 types of startup07:46
fellayaboydo i need a router that supports vpn in order to create a vpn for my home?07:46
Stanley00krised: hmm, unity is fine with me :D07:46
Angabladeubuntu23421, I would try another screen. A monitor perhaps after the machine is completely started up.07:46
krisedsherif yes you can. you should install synaptic first. then install gnome-fallback session07:47
theadminkrised: Why would you need synaptic for that? You can just apt-get it07:47
krisedstanley00 its fine if you just install and go with whats there.. but for working with the system its very anoying imho07:47
ubuntu23421laptop screen never worked07:47
krisedtheadmin for people who arent used to terminal id recommend synaptic for managing packages..07:48
sherifkrised gnome or kde?07:48
ubuntu23421its on but with white on it07:48
theadminkrised: Meh, then nothing wrong with the software-center either :D07:48
krisedsherif why not just install both ?? during the login screen you just pick which one you want for this session07:48
Stanley00krised: I just an edn user, surf the web and listen to music, so unity's fine :D07:48
ubuntu23421GUYZ ive been analyzing the file for the monitor setup07:48
Angabladeubuntu23421, I unstand. Try letting the laptop completely boot to the desktop, then plug another monitor into it if you can.07:48
ubuntu23421and only apears one monitor07:48
krisedStanley00 exactly.. but for administrating the system its a pain.07:48
ubuntu23421but i need two07:49
sherifkrised ok first i have to install synpatic?07:49
ubuntu23421but iam using it07:49
omeWhat is the _right_ way to create a link for a software that you install ? so that it comes up in menu, and you can just type it in shell.07:49
sherifkrised from store?07:49
ubuntu23421running a live session07:49
ubuntu23421of ubuntu07:49
Ben64ubuntu23421: you can use something like xrandr or nvidia-settings to use the 2nd monitor07:49
Stanley00krised: I think admin prefer command line, right?07:49
krisedsherif well you dont HAVE to.. but i think its easier.. in terminal try this: sudo apt-get install synaptic07:49
ubuntu23421i tryed07:49
fellayaboyhow can i setup a vpn for my home without having to mod my router with ddwrt or without buying a vpn router...ive seen so many different programs for windows that seem to work..i believe they work by bridging..is their any program or any way i could do this for ubuntu?07:50
ubuntu23421gives me an error07:50
theadminome, create a .desktop file in /usr/share/applications/. If you wish, there is lxmed to help you with menu editing (although I think it's not in the repos)07:50
ubuntu23421nvidia settings07:50
krisedstanley00 since i have to set up the GUI part for all users.. no.. i gotta see how it looks like.. moving icons around and stuff.07:50
Ben64ubuntu23421: try to not use the enter key as punctuation07:50
Angabladeubuntu23421, if you can do that, then I would sugguest you try. If it doesn't work. Please come back. And we can proceed from there.07:50
Stanley00krised: ah, got that.07:50
ubuntu23421ok, sory07:50
ometheadmin: aight thanks, I will have a look.07:51
krisedStanley00 had i been setting up a proxy or firewall id have done it in terminal too yes07:51
sherifkrised ok done07:51
ubuntu23421It will take for ever to get back here07:51
sherifkrised now wut07:51
ubuntu23421see you07:51
Ben64ubuntu23421: if you have a second computer with linux, you can run nvidia-settings or another monitor configuration tool with x forwarding07:51
Ben64or not07:51
AngabladeI just drank a 20 oz can of redbull. I will be here for a while.07:52
krisedsherif fire up synaptic and search for gnome-fallback session07:52
sherifkrised how can i execute synaptic using terminal?07:52
Ben64gksudo synaptic07:53
krisedyou can also search for kde and install both and then log out and click the small wheel next to your username in lightdm when logging in to select another gui07:53
theadminAngablade: lol you :D07:53
krisedsherif type sudo synaptic07:53
theadminkrised: NO07:53
theadmin!gksu | krised07:53
ubottukrised: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)07:53
krisedyeah you can use gksu as well. in fact that should be prefered.07:53
theadminkrised: Running GUI apps as sudo leads to really sad results, sometimes even breaks desktop environments07:53
theadminkrised: s/as/with/07:54
sherifkrised ok now there r many packages07:54
Angabladetheadmin, Someone helped me. The least I can do is help someone else in return.07:54
theadminAngablade: Nothing, I just laughed at your red bull statement07:54
krisedtheadmin yeah ok. im too much used to sudo so i should learn linux manners.07:54
Stanley00krised: synaptic will ask for password automatically, I think07:54
sherifkrised do u mean if i login as gnome i wont be able to use terminal?07:54
krisedsherif yes you will. terminal is just a program.. the gui just shows you the programs in diffrent ways. they contain same programs07:55
theadminkrised: Heh, yeah, well... I personally don't think any graphical apps (apart from maybe *very* several exceptions) should ever be ran as root anyway07:55
krisedif you install a program in gnome.. and then boot into kde the program will also show up there07:55
Angabladetheadmin, What is better than a can of redbull, metal, MW3 on another screen, and the irc on this screen?07:55
sherifkrised ah ok got it07:55
theadminAngablade: Heheh :) You're a fun person, could you PM me?07:56
krisedtheadmin agreed.07:56
sherifkrised is it gnome-seesion.bin cuz i have it installed :)07:56
sherifkrised session*07:56
krisedsherif hang on while i fire synaptic up here07:57
sherifkrised fire up?07:57
krisedsherif in synaptic click the search icon and search this: gnome-session-fallback07:57
krisedfire up means starting the program.07:57
krisedtheadmin wait.. is 12.04 released yet ?07:58
sherifkrised yh there a green near it i think its already installed07:58
Stanley00krised: not yet...07:58
theadminkrised: No, latest is 11.1007:58
krisedah didnt think so either.. its strange.. 11.10 is the ONLY version apart from 9.10 which works with likewise-open07:58
krisedso i got no choise when picking the version07:59
sherifkrised i think im workin on gnome now :)07:59
sherifkrised its already installed and my interface is not ugly07:59
krisedsherif if youve installed the gnome-session-fallback you need to log out and clicking the little cog next to your name when you log in.. there you can select the gnome-session-fallback08:00
krisedsherif im using gnome too. but its the unity gui that i think is unusable and ugly.08:00
sherifkrised wut is the little cog next to my name?08:01
fellayaboyhow do i get to see the gui in ssh on my side...i used ssh -x username@host and tried to open but it didnt work08:01
krisedsherif when you log in to your computer after restarting it.. where you usually click your name and it asks for password.. there is a small cog.. a wheel with spikes on it.08:02
Stanley00fellayaboy: did you try x app forward HOWTO?08:02
sherifkrised i will just log out and check08:02
fellayaboywheres taht at?08:02
krisedsherif yeah do that. it should work now08:02
fellayaboyim a lil inexperienced08:02
Stanley00fellayaboy: I think you will find the answer there, search for that in the web08:03
Ben64fellayaboy: you might want to re-check the manual page for ssh08:03
fellayaboywhich website08:03
Ben64fellayaboy: -x is not x forwarding, -X is.08:03
fellayaboythank u ben08:03
fellayaboythat probably was my error08:03
metaspikefellayaboy - man ssh - <the manual page> :)08:04
sherifkrised it was set to ubuntu08:04
fellayaboythank u08:04
sherifkrised is ubuntu same as unity?08:04
krisedsherif yes. that is by standard the unity (there is a panel in your left side) click the cog and select fallback session if you can.08:04
sherifkrised cant find panel on left side08:05
krisedsherif if youre logged in with the standard ubuntu it should give you a panel in your left side with icons like firefox and other programs08:06
sherifkrised actually the panel on left side is not there now it was available in ubuntu08:07
sherifkrised im not standard now im gnome08:07
krisedok. then you got a top menu line and a bottom program line right ?08:07
krisedit should look a bit diffrent from the ubuntu youre used to08:08
sherifkrised yup its different08:08
ubuntu25324iam back08:08
krisedsherif then you successfully installed gnome as it use to be.. you can also try kde if you like.. or any other of the many many diffrent xsessions..08:09
ubuntu25324didnt work putting the cable after running the os, as i expected,08:09
metaspikesherif, why are you using fallback?08:09
krisedmetaspike im showing him the diffrence in the xsessions08:09
sherifkrised there were gnome,gnome classic ubuntu, ubuntu 2D08:10
ubuntu25324ppl can i get some help with the monitor issue vs graphic card?08:10
ubuntu253241:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G72M [GeForce Go 7400] (rev a1)08:10
sherifmetaspike wut is fallback?08:10
krisedyeah.. ive set my systems to classic ubuntu.. cause its simple and i like it like that.08:10
sherifkrised now i cant get the left panel :S08:10
metaspikewhat you're using now apparently08:11
krisedsherif in the fallback you dont need it08:11
ubuntu25324any admin on08:11
sherifkrised wut is fallback?08:11
Ben64!details | ubuntu2532408:11
ubottuubuntu25324: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."08:11
krisedsherif it was originally designed as a failsafe way of getting into ubuntu if the graphics cant cope with the "flashy" look of the ubuntu unity08:12
sherifkrised theres activites up left right?08:13
krisedsherif you should see in the top left side two words. one saying Programs another saying Places right ?08:14
ubuntu25324ok, my laptop monitor is broke, i have a tv set installed on the external connector, it works with the standard drivers, but once i install nvidia, it stops working, iam using a sony vayo laptop, with 1:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G72M [GeForce Go 7400] (rev a1), ubuntu 10.4 lts08:14
krisedtheadmin uhmm was it you who recommended me lxdm ?08:14
Ben64ubuntu25324: oh its you again08:14
ubuntu25324iam pluggin the tv with a vga/dvi connector08:15
Ben64ubuntu25324: if you have a second computer with linux, you can run nvidia-settings or another monitor configuration tool with x forwarding08:15
ubuntu25324I dont have any other08:15
krisedAny admin here ?? Im getting racistic PM from Snarbafulator!!!08:15
sherifkrised no theres just activites and when i go on it theres windows, applications08:15
ubuntu25324thats why iam running the LIVE version of ubuntu08:15
icerootkrised: #ubuntu-ops08:16
krisedsherif that sounds more like unity really.08:16
theadminkrised: yeah08:16
krisedtheadmin thanks.. it looks fair.. but i cant log in.. its showing me users that arent on the system08:17
Ben64ubuntu25324: then you'd have to use xrandr08:17
metaspikeubuntu25324, there's probably a fn+function <F1, F2, F3 ETC> key to switch displays, or you can possibly change this behaviour with bios.08:17
sherifkrised i dont feel like that do windows i open just have x and no - or rectangle?08:17
theadmin!ops | Snarbafulator is spamming in PM08:17

kapzHi all! I installed ubuntu 11.10 on VM and I have a few Questions...how to check which unity version I am using(I have completely updated my system)? Is unity 5.2 stable and availabe via normal update or I need to add a ppa? Thanks09:48
sherifkrised is there a key to open terminal without clicking09:48
Jordan_Um1bxd: Do you mean for instance having one Firefox Window in one workspace and another in another?09:48

linociscoStanley00: setfont /usr/share/consolefonts/<name_of_font>.psf.gz . where to find that gz file?09:49
Jordan_Um1bxd: This should work with almost any window manager, ctrl+alt+shift+arrow-key to move a window to another workspace.09:49

m1bxdjordan_u - nope, it just flicks you back to your original workspace09:53
sherifdns53 i forgot a command that was from 4 letters like pprm that open like interface settings u remeber it?09:53
icerootkapz: normally you will never get a newer version within one ubuntu-release, just security fixes09:53
icerootkapz: but i am not sure how unity is handled in that case09:53
theantislimMorning, all.09:54
sohamwith new ubuntu 11.10 released i ask the gurus about some review.09:54
Jordan_Um1bxd: Ctrl+alt+shift+right will move the current window one workspace to the right, and will also switch you one workspace to the right. This can be confusing with maximized windows as it appears nothing has happened.09:55

theadminAh, wait, sizes10:29
theadminDo the same trick but with df for the sizes I think10:30

theadmintom453642356: err... Huh, this seems to work: diff dir1 dir210:30
tom453642356theadmin diff dir1 dir2 - it doesn't work because it reads the file data (every single byte) and takes forever. i don't want to real 100gb of file contents....10:31

theadminloganrun: I like that feature myself and, actually, most desktops have that. Windows does that too16:15

duryxangua: as root?16:51
theadmingrummund: Normally you can start/stop daemons with "sudo service DAEMONNAME start/stop". In your case, I think you want "sudo service tftpd start"16:51
grummundtheadmin: i think tftpd is intended to run from xinetd, but it's not set up...16:52
grummundif i could just invoke it from the command line that would be fine16:53
theadmingrummund: Hm... xinetd... I don't think it's supposed to be ran that way (doesn't make sense to me) but if it is, well... Then I can't really help16:54
john_doe_jrdoes anyone know if there is an application that is free and open source that will allow me to take daily notes ?16:54
grummundwell there's no tftpd script under /etc/init.d/... that i can see16:55
theadminjohn_doe_jr: Zim is my favorite for that.16:55
theadmingrummund: /etc/init.d/ is deprecated and only used for things not yet ported to use Upstart. Look for things under /etc/init/16:55

UICTamaletheadmin: I've also tried reinstalling lightdm17:08
jigspantheadmin:system cant power off completely .17:08
theadminUICTamale: hmmm... If you boot to console (append "text" to the kernel line), does it work?17:08
hatchetjackcompdoc: seems pretty unusable to me at the moment17:08
compdochatchetjack, I have it running windows and nix guests on 3 different servers, using 3 different versions of Ubuntu17:08
theadminjigspan: So it just hangs on a black screen (or on some screen with text ending in "System halted."), right?17:08
hatchetjackcompdoc: and you installed similar to wiki link I posted?17:09
jigspantheadmin: yes sir17:09
duryneed to go... be back17:09
compdochatchetjack, if you are getting permission denied, it sounds like you dont have user/groups set right17:09
theadminjigspan: That'd be "yes ma'am" :P. Either way, append "reboot=bios" to your kernel line and try again. If it doesn't work, try changing that to "reboot=acpi" and finally "reboot=force". See which works for you. After that, update grub to use the respective parameter.17:10
compdochatchetjack, yes, something like that one, but I think thats a bit dated, since it only mentions 10.04 (I think it was). You can google kvm on the actual version you are using17:10
jigspantheadmin: ok mam but how to do that?17:11
hatchetjackcompdoc: how should the perms be set?17:11
go^Does anybody know any tool to use my Nokia (N97 mini) with Ubuntu 11.10? Something like OVI Pc Suite..17:12
McG-Luckyso i am not getting help17:12
=== Arnold_ is now known as Arnold
compdochatchetjack, I dont think you actually need to set perms, you just need to make sure the users and groups exist. If you use apt-get to install, it should set/create all those things for you17:12
theadminjigspan: Well. During the initial startup, after BIOS POST, hold Left Shift. Then you'll see some sort of a menu. Edit the line beginning with "kernel", just add " bios=..." to it (where ... is bios, acpi or force), after which tell it to boot. See if it works, then report back saying which worked and I'll provide further instructions.17:12
theadminjigspan: " reboot=...", rather17:13
auronandaceMcG-Lucky: well, theres not much anyone can do about bad proprietry drivers17:14
compdochatchetjack, also, you have to make sure the service is set to run at boot17:14
jigspantheadmin:i get that menu every time without pressing left shift17:14
compdochatchetjack, that permission denied might simple mean its not running17:14
McG-Luckyso what is it ubuntu17:15
hatchetjackcompdoc: I've verified libvirt-bin is running17:15
hatchetjackcompdoc: my user is in the libvirtd group17:15
hatchetjackI've rebooted17:15
McG-Luckyis it or not17:15
compdochatchetjack, hold on a sec17:16
theadminjigspan: Ah cool, well then just follow the instructions as they are from the next step on. Normally that menu is hidden but.17:16
McG-Luckyout of 1576 people no one can help me17:16
auronandaceMcG-Lucky: you're using closed source ati drivers, only amd has access to those so nobody here can help you if the problem is with the drivers17:16
McG-LuckySo how do you fix that17:17
gr33n7007hhow can I install flash player 11 on ubuntu 10.04 any ideas??17:17
McG-Luckythanks for the reply17:17
auronandaceMcG-Lucky: thats my point, you can't, they are closed sourcew17:17
McG-Luckyso i must uninstall ubuntu17:18
McG-Luckycause it does not work17:18
auronandaceMcG-Lucky: if the problem is with unity then you can file a bug report, if the problem is the ati driver then there is simply nothing you can do17:18
McG-Luckyo and pd it used to work on other ubuntu 's17:19
compdochatchetjack, libvirt-bin is the only service set to run at boot on two of my systems, so that seems right17:19

damo22imbezol: how17:25
compdochatchetjack, it also suggests packages you can install seperately, but those arent needed for most situations17:25
damo22imbezol: for example i want to highlight a fixed width of text and delete just that text17:26
imbezoldamo22: instead of "v" to go into copy mode, do "shift-v"17:26
imbezoldamo22: if you're doing the whole file you can also use "cut" at the command line to do it17:26

benbloom_I;m having problems reading my email with thunderbird 9. I think the new update caused problems and I can't figure out how to fix them. I've tried a apt-get purge and install after backing up and deleting ~/.thunderbird but the problem persists. is there somewhere else that thunderbird settings are stored for use with kde?19:58
marcusweSomeone know how or can redirect me to a forum to wich I would be able to find out how to get my bluetooth keyboard connected, it does not show up on devices when I search. The mouse however do, and it is connected to the same microsoft usb bluetooth dongle.19:58
IanWizardNewb, that's for the temp probe, not for the fan, that should be under something like /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0, not just /hwmon19:59
arianamarcuswe, have you tried wrapped driver?19:59
cfhowlettConfirmed - my optical drive has died.  /jackbauermode: on DAMMIT!20:00
SlartI've got a strange problem with my 64bit ubuntu 11.10 desktop. At my left border I have to very small areas (a couple of pixels wide) that are white, it's not a hardware defect since compiz has decided that these areas should be shadowed (like any normal window). Here's a screenshot of the problem. http://imagebin.org/197646 . Does anyone know what this is? how to fix it?20:00
marcusweadriana, no I have'nt. Where can I find that?20:00
=== Guest13384 is now known as djQuery
congressmonI shouldn't have to FDISK it should I? ??20:01

fellayaboyim sshed into a remote server...if i want to scp..i would have to have the router on my local network opened for ssh??20:03
IanWizardfellayaboy, no20:04
fellayaboyi never used scp before20:04
SteevcaOk,so i am having problems with my network adpater.I have TP-LINK TF-3200 and it's not detected on Ubuntu 11.10,Fedora 15 and Joli OS all are 32 bit.So i asume that drivers are the problem because on windows xp pro it's working fine.20:04
fellayaboyso i would just put in my username@and public ip address when i scp20:04

blinkossAnyone know whyh in 2012 it still takes 6 minutes for an Intel Core 2 Duo machine to boot up and log in?20:05
IanWizardfellayaboy, just disconnect (or open another terminal), and scp user@host:file local_path20:05
IanWizardfellayaboy, that assumes that you're copping FROM the server, to go to, you'd use the local_path first20:05
yezariaelycongressmon: are you on windows or linux?20:05
ericusHi! I have a question regarding .bashrc and aliases. I have this in .bashrc: alias blinkenshell='ssh ericus@a.server'.20:06
djQueryIanWizard, doesnt bring up anything20:06
IanWizarddjQuery, then that's probably not your problem20:06
ericusHow would I change that to get gnome-terminal to open and run that command via alt+f2 blinkenshell20:06
IanWizardfellayaboy, no, you'd be like scp username@publicipaddress ./file20:07
IanWizardfellayaboy, no, you'd be like scp username@publicipaddress:/home/username/file  ./file20:07

eukreignMakefile question: I'm using a make file for collecting random bits of shell commands that I want to execute in my project but this becomes problematic since Makefile checks for filename first, so I have to use .PHONY. I would like to be able to say that all targets in a Makefile are PHONY, is there a way to do that? and finally, is there an alternative to Makefiles that would let me do the same thing? (one other annoy20:09

How would I make it possible to make it open in gnome-terminal when I do alt+f2 and enter blinkenshell? Right now I first need to open a terminal and then enter blinkenshell.20:17
Steevcatheadmin Thanks.20:17
arianaToctiz, rather after fresh install dont update some things through update manager, there are some bugs or something, then U should rather use LTS, for me LTS was better20:17

ItreofI have seen and read about why Ubuntu Desktop 64-bit is not recommended and the 32-bit is. However, looking at the Ubuntu Server, 32-bit is not recommended and 64-bit is...now I am a little confused as to why? I would like to use a 32-bit server and a 64-bit OS, or just both as 32-bit. What is the difference between the two bits as far as server and desktop is concerned?20:24
jribItreof: if you have 4gb of ram or greater, use 64bit, end of story imo20:24
Zw_Hi. I installed tightVNC, but do not have any GUI, do anyone know any good GUIs ? So i can connect to the server with vnc?20:25
IanWizardariana, :)20:25
TC_UbuntuNewbeerealvnc and tightvnc are available for various os20:26
TC_UbuntuNewbeethe viewer is normally free20:26
TC_UbuntuNewbeeor wait - do you want to connect to the cli with vnc??20:27
=== gskellig|away is now known as gskellig|mobile
Zw_i did it before20:28
Zw_just have to install a desktop (ui)20:28
ItreofTC_UbuntuNewbee, I want to connect either way with vnc. However, I was just curious why the 64-bit version was recommended for server, and the 32-bit for client?20:29
ericusHi! I have a question regarding .bashrc and aliases. I have this in .bashrc: alias blinkenshell='ssh ericus@a.server'. How would I make it possible to run in gnome-terminal when I do alt+f2 and enter blinkenshell?20:29
TC_UbuntuNewbeesorry Itrefo, was talking about ZW_'s problem20:30
RoachmmflhyrItreof, typically servers should have more RAM, if a server was running 32 bit OS then it was only be able to utilize 4 GB of RAM20:30
fean0rericus: open terminal before starting ssh-session (like xterm -e ssh ...)20:30

TC_UbuntuNewbee @dbugger: Start at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GDebi20:43
IanWizarddbugger, then after that's done, use:    gdebi-gtk  <package_file_for_virtualbox>20:44
IanWizarddbugger, it will resolve the deps for you.20:44
Tiktalikwarfaren: yeah, I compile software a lot. anyway, in part of the instructions it says...20:44
