hauxDoes anyone know how to remove all printer drivers from Ubuntu?00:00
ericusActionParsnip: does not help :(00:00
Pete-Umbra^_^00:00
ericusI have a linux gateway00:00
ericusTried google's DNS00:00
urlin2uhaux, printer will show you what is installed.00:00
ericusSo finally I called my ISP00:00
ActionParsnipericus: try setting the google dns in your system, not you linux gateway00:00
cfhowlettSteevca: http://lubuntu.net/  && http://xubuntu.org/00:00
ericusthey told me that there is problems in my area00:00
recon_lapcfhowlett: i tried, the text was all messed up. anyway, i'm v happy with 10.04 lts , I 'll let the young guns bleed all over the new stuff00:00

hauxurlin2u, aren't there preinstalled drivers to support a variety of printers?00:01
ericusActionParsnip: I've already done that00:01
cfhowlettrecon_lap: right.  see you in 12.04 then.00:01
ericusThanks anyway00:01
urlin2uhaux, only a list to choose from, not the drivers themselves I believe00:01
Steevcacfhowlett Thanks.00:01
ericusThey told me they'd send me a text when it's fixed00:01
Aethelrickrecon_lap: only way to go for servers00:01

ActionParsnipericus: so why are you in here if no amount of config will help?00:02
Steevcacfhowlett Can i also try an older version of ubuntu?00:02
ericusActionParsnip: some sites works, but SLOW00:02
ericusand some does not, at all00:02
urlin2uhaux, if you had a printer plugged in on install you might but printer will tell what is installed. Are you trying to clear HD space?00:02

MrDoes Wine come with Ubuntu?00:03
cfhowlettSteevca: stick with Long Term Support releases most recent is 10.0400:03

chris__hi can anyone please tell me how to install jre? my path is old00:03
rick__always wineing lol00:03
urlin2umr, no and your nic does not complete itis to short00:03
chris__im new00:04
hauxurlin2u, yes, I figure if there's a large database of printer drivers preinstalled, there's no need to keep them. I was able to add a network printer without Ubuntu downloading anything (as far as I could tell). So this makes me think that it comes with a lot of drivers by default00:04
Mrwhy is it to short?00:04
ericusno ActionParsnip, haha, sorry, I thought I was in the #ubuntu-offtopic channel. My bad, I'm drunk :D00:04
urlin2uMr, ah if I capitalize the M it completes with the tab otherwise no so no biggie.00:04

JosephHarriethaHello, Please take a look at this information: http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=fb0aa063d86d1aeae48c9cbadca3a85627173af800:12
urlin2umaujhsn, you can drag and drop or copy and paste.00:12

JosephHarriethaI am having trouble with my headset. When speaking I sound slow and demonic. I have no idea why its slowing my voice /lowering the pitch00:12

willfrandi've a .avi video, but this video was corrupted, i believe that was a virus, i need recuperate this video, i has to use the divfix, and the mobile media converter, but no resolve my problem. Im from colombia00:14
JosephHarrietha!google | cfhowlett,00:14
ubottucfhowlett,: While Google is useful for helpers, many newer users don't have the google-fu yet. Please don't tell people to "google it" when they ask a question.00:14
urlin2uwillfrand, virus in linux or windows?00:14
maujhsnurlin2u I get an error message when I try the drag and drop method!00:14
ActionParsnipwillfrand: vlc may be able to fix it00:14
Vag-Staincfhowlett: thanks00:15
urlin2umaujhsn, so where is the file and where is the destination?00:15
urlin2uand what is the file?00:15
brontosaurusrexmaujhsn: what error?00:15
Vag-Stainhow to i run transmission?00:15
butch256Hi - I just did a fresh 11.04 install, and now I'm getting "error: no video mode activated" from grub on boot.  Is this common?00:15
JosephHarriethawillfrand, It was NOT a virus. I promise you that. Security companies have been conditioning windows loser for years to belive that antivirus is all that stops hell itself from invading their system. Unfortnatly, the truth is quite the opposite. There are no active viri that affect video files in the way you described.00:16
urlin2uVag-Stain, start iot from the menu.00:16
urlin2uit00:16
brontosaurusrexVag-Stain: i image you need to click on the right icon/menu or whatever is gnome using this days00:17
JosephHarriethawillfrand, It is far more likely that the file was corrupted via a device being unplugged while copying, severe fragmentation or a bad sector remap gone wrong.00:17
andrew9183how come free the fish doesnt work in ubuntu ? :(00:17
chris__recon_lap, cant find any details as to what todo in the read me im trying to install eclipse?00:17

Vag-Stain?00:17
willfrandyes joseph, probably, but then, how can to make to recuperate this video?00:17
urlin2uwillfrand, are you sure you may not just be missing codecs?00:18
maujhsnurlin2u, brontosaurusrex  Error message permission denied! going from /home/dowloads/(file) to /usr/share/gimp.00:18
butch256It says to edit /etc/... but my grub drive only has "/boot"00:18
Vag-Staingot it thanks'00:18
recon_lapchris__: what file did you download, and does it contain a file that ends with .deb00:18
urlin2umaujhsn, what is the download, did y9ou check the repos?00:19
chris__recon just looking,00:19
urlin2uyou00:19
willfrandyes urlin2u, i sure that isn't the codecs00:19
JosephHarriethawillfrand, It will all depend on how much damage has been done. A missing byte or two, vlc will do that. Alot missing? won't work. Make sure you have the proper codec installed and try VLC.00:19
urlin2uwillfrand, avi is just video container could be a number of formats I believe.00:19
willfrandi'm sure that the problem isn't codecs00:19
JosephHarriethawillfrand, you could *in theory* overwrite the bad sectors with black a , besides a few black frames, your file would appear fine.00:19

willfranddivfix00:22
cfhowlettwillfrand: see ffmpeg00:22
JosephHarrietharecon_lap, Start with bash, or maybe ya know... learning the logistics of how to actually use a computer .... such as standalone programs.00:22
brontosaurusrexwillfrand: maybe install mediainfo (it is not in repos, google it), then type : mediainfo my.avi and see what it says, after that you may be able to pick a proper tool for repair00:22

JosephHarrietharecon_lap, Surely, someone who does not have the problem solving skills to figure out a simple archive, will not be very successful in programming.00:23

ActionParsnipJosephHarrietha: the ubuntu install CD has gparted on it, so why need an extra CD>00:29
JosephHarrietharecon_lap, But of course, your way works as well. Nothing is more empowering than self defeat.00:30
JosephHarriethaActionParsnip, Because the ubuntu cd takes 2 minutes to boot and I'm an impatient geek.00:30
||||||||||||||||JosephHarrietha, USB boot?00:31
lahwranhow would I detect a key being pressed, no matter what application is focused?00:31

JosephHarriethabutch256, Oh, I have the same thing. Truecrypt bootloader, esc to boot, right?00:32
recon_lapJosephHarrietha: your presupposing that he'll fail and give up. and i cant think of a better start to learing programming than installing an java ide , i would think he would read a programming book next00:32
butch256JosephHarrietha: "error: no video mode activated" on boot after fresh install00:32
lahwranrecon_lap: java? python is already installed on ubuntu00:32
JosephHarrietharecon_lap, Java for a newbie? Meh. Better than BASIC I guess. But considering his previously demonstrated problem solving skills, I am sure my prediction is correct.00:33
butch256JosephHarrietha:  I can successfully start the raid arrays and access the entire install within my live cd - but... no luck fixing so far...00:33
JosephHarriethabutch256, I see, so its not a truecrypt bug. I've been ignoring it for a while.... maybe I'll get working on it. Since I have another case we can eliminate the possibilities.00:34
urlin2uJosephHarrietha, super faulty cause and effect bro.00:34
JosephHarriethabutch256, Does it prevent your system from booting?00:34
butch256JosephHarrietha: No, i can hit escape and type in my pass etc... its just *really* annoying00:34
JosephHarriethabutch256, Okay, so your in the same boat as me haha.00:34
butch256JosephHarrietha: seems so, if i ever figure it out i'll make a blog post, heh00:35
JosephHarriethabutch256, Alright, can you put your /etc/default/grub file on pastebin? (I don't have a copy of default) and your /boot/grub/grub.cfg00:35
ActionParsnipJosephHarrietha: usb will boot faster than any CD, why not advise they use a USB stick or maybe even buy one just for your impatience. Think about it00:36
recon_lapgetting snippy tonight, long island ice tea's all round00:37
JosephHarriethaActionParsnip, I use a 8GB USB with about 6 distros, 13 system tools, 2 AV's and some other randoms made using YUMI. But as for them, I guess I would have been better off saying the gparted in the live cd :P I just don't like it personally.00:37
butch256JosephHarrietha: it's the default, no worried, i'm going to finish the rest of my install now (current on laptop, desktop doesnt have net access yet)00:37
ActionParsnipJosephHarrietha: the user already has the tool you need, just strange to advise to download what they already have00:38
JosephHarriethabutch256, Alright, can you put them up anyway? (I don't have a copy of the defaults since my system is far from default). I'll compare them and eliminate more possiblities.00:38
ActionParsnipJosephHarrietha: I have a PXE boot with all that stuff, no need for USB00:38
JosephHarriethaActionParsnip, Personal preference makes my advice to others different then what most would consider the "simplest route"00:38
JosephHarriethaActionParsnip, I've never seen a need for that. Clutters up the bootloader. I have truecrypt chainload grub2 ( hidden since I only has one entry).00:39
JosephHarriethaActionParsnip, I used to have a quint boot, but Arch was too time consuming, Hackintosh was too buggy and Jolicloud was pretty much useless.00:40
JosephHarriethabutch256, once your install is done of course.00:41
ActionParsnipJosephHarrietha: try xpud, fastest boot I ever saw00:41

ActionParsnipJosephHarrietha: the stuff in Lucid is painful on newer kit in my experience. I always grab the next release when it hits alpha100:43
JosephHarriethaActionParsnip, I can't really afford to either. Managing two Debian repo's, 4 websites and Uni gets stressful.00:43

zenon_I know just unpack & run will not install01:01
Vovkinstall will make it automatically available in ubuntu's menu system01:02
Vovkand might make it possible to automatically update the game01:02
Vovkdepending on what the installer actually does01:02
Vovkwith unpack and run you'll have to manually make menu entries and manually update01:02
israel7quit01:03
recon_lapzebon_: really depends on the installer, most installers will unpack the program plus other jobs automatically01:03

Vovkreally want to force system to see network card - would solve all my issues01:05
zenon_so in cases its more secure to unpack & run?01:06
Vovkphysical light on network card is on01:06
* Sebastien is a member of http://ubuntu-qc.org/01:06
Vovkso it's receiving power I guess... but not visible to any OS01:06
Vovkno network gurus here? :(01:07
ActionParsnipVovk: can you ping the router's internal IP?01:08
urlin2utelnetter, how did you install on the usb?01:08
recon_lapzenon_: it hard to know, really depends on the program/installer , some installers do little more than unpack the program, others can do lots more. if you want secure you probably have to check the code and compile it yourself01:09
Vovkrouter's internal ip is 127.0.0.0?01:09
Vovkoh01:09
Vovkno. internal ip of the router is 192.168.1.1 (it's actually a laptop forwarding a connection) cannae ping01:10
urlin2utelnetter, you can load grub to the mbr area of the usb with a kive ubuntu disc, would you like a link?01:10
telnetterurlin2u, from a livecd, chose sdd1 format ext4, chose swap second partition on sdd and grub on sdd1.01:10
ActionParsnipVovk: ok, does the interface have an IP address?01:10
Vovkinterface is not found01:10
Vovkifconfig just shows loopback interface01:10
Vovklspci does not even show the card01:10
ActionParsnipVovk: ok then run:  sudo lshw -C network    youi will see the interface name01:11
Nullifi3dhave you tried compiling drivers?01:11
ActionParsnipVovk: you will need the product line01:11
Nullifi3dVovk01:11
zenon_I'm noob at linux in transition, how do I go abount maintaining setup?01:11
telnetterurlin2u, i have 'boot-repair' which will purge and repair grubs. is that the same thing?01:11
ActionParsnipzenon_: keep on top of updates01:11
zenon_cheers Recon01:11
OerVovk, is it enabled in the bios ?01:11
ActionParsnipzenon_: you can use apps like bleachbit to keep the OS clutter free, otherwise it's pretty ok01:11
urlin2utelnetter, 3 methods of putting grub in the mbr read carefully.   https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Reinstalling_GRUB201:12
Vovkbios is on factory default, running lshw01:12
Vovklshw -C Network -> nothing01:12
recon_lapzenon_ no one checks the code, trusting the supplier and keeping uptodate normal01:12
Vovksudo lshw shows a lot of things, none of which are network card01:12
Vovkwondering if it's physically damaged01:12
Vovkdon't know how it could be tho01:12
Vovkmaybe a spider crawled in and sparked it... low chance of that tho...01:13
zenon_thank you all01:13
zenon_I want to check the code.01:13
zenon_but I'm noob01:13
Nullifi3dVovk, it was working in windows, correct?01:13
OerVovk what type of laptop is it ? does it have a FN key to enable/disable network ?01:13
urlin2utelnetter, personally I would not use any gui grub repair, but I knkw the basics of doing it from a live cd or using suoergrub to boot the OS and just doing it from the desktop terminal.01:13
zenon_loosening off the eyes ^^01:13
syn-ackOer, My HP does.01:13
urlin2usupergrub*01:13
Vovkwas working in windows - then windows crashed (lulz) and suddenly, nothing would boot. reinstalled ubuntu on same HD, it boots01:14
Vovkit is a desktop01:14
Vovkwriting to you from lappy01:14
Nullifi3dso if you know or can find out the model of the laptop, and from that determine your nic, id suggest finding specific drivers for your nic and compiling them for the kernel01:14
Nullifi3di think thats a good step to take01:14
Nullifi3dthats what id do at this point if i were you01:15
zenon_what tutorials should I watch?01:15
Vovknot on a laptop. EVGA FTW 720 motherboard with built in ethernet card01:15
telnetterurlin2u, i have the gui boot-repair. if I tell it to scrub and reinstall the grub on sdd1, then the other option is 'force grub install to' i should choose sdd right? and that won't affect the other two installs I have on the hard drives?01:15
Nullifi3doh, wellwhatever01:15
Nullifi3dcan still do it01:15
urlin2utelnetter, never used it I can't confirm anything.01:15
recon_lapzenon_ ; seriously, if you distrust the program that much you probably should not install it.01:16
Vovkhmm want nvidia NIC driver for linux01:16
Vovkor nvidia nic module01:16
Vovkthe thing is it used to work from a vanilla ubuntu livecd01:16
Vovkusing same livecd won't find NIC anymore01:16
zenon_its for my own kowledge01:17
ActionParsnipVovk: check BIOS01:17
Vovkrebooting to check BIOS01:17
Nullifi3dwell if thats true then i bet your nic is fried :/01:17
ActionParsnipVovk: its probably some realtek thing01:17
Vovkprolly01:17
zenon_I dont trust ubuntu01:17
Vovkyou can usually trust ubuntu01:17
zenon_its good01:17
zenon_I like it01:17
urlin2utelnetter, always run a sudo fdisk -l to confirm the usb though as if you boot with a uab the partitions can be moved in how they are being read. Such as then sda of the hd might read as sdb and the usb as sda01:17
Vovkjust can't trust it to not install bloat... but you can take that out yourself01:17
zenon_but I need to learn how to secure check & fix01:18
zenon_& everything01:18
urlin2ubloat the noobs favorite word. lol01:18
zenon_I lol01:18
recon_lapzenon_ lol, 4 years collage , and probably 5+ years working in computer security and you would be off to a good start01:19
zenon_meanig you01:19
ActionParsnipzenon_: the default setup isn't badly setup for security01:19
Vovkin BIOS01:19
Vovklooking for something to help01:19
zenon_yeh I need to get cracking, excuse the pun01:19
Vovkfound MAC0 and MAC1 lan disabled01:19
Vovkonly 2 choices are disabled and auto... switched them to auto01:19
zenon_I don't want to crack.01:19
Vovkdon't think that was the right thing tho01:19
ActionParsnipVovk: grab your bios manual onmline, you may just need to set it to factory defaults and be ok01:19
Vovkit was at factory defaults01:20
ActionParsnipVovk: just flick through the menus, see what you can find01:20
zenon_my veiws on security are that it should be updated & secured before even near the net01:20
OerVovk check all settings to be sure, enable execute bit and stuff01:21
zenon_I don't know how to do that will linux yet01:21
Vovkchecked all settings, enabled basically everything. traying again01:21
Vovktrying again*01:21
telnetterurlin2u, yeah, its sdd in fdisk01:21
zenon_*with01:21
ActionParsnipzenon_: updates offline is possible but pretty unnecessary01:21
zenon_I think it is01:22
zenon_its just logic01:22
ActionParsnipzenon_: offline windows updates for a home user? Seems excessive01:22
zenon_mac being uncrashible turned out to be a myth01:22
ActionParsnipzenon_: you got a WSUS server?01:22
recon_lapzenon_: you just been using windows to long, ubuntu starts off secure01:22
urlin2utelnetter, still can't confirm myself on a app I have never used, I gave you the link to fix it easily from a ubuntu live cd though.01:22
Wargasmbah windows... I hate booting into it01:22
telnetterurlin2u, yes, thanks I will try that.01:23
zenon_I don't know what wsus is01:23
recon_lapzenon_: then you make changes and make it less secure01:23
Wargasmfeels filthy to use windows now that I have ubuntu01:23
zenon_I read it some where a bit backj01:23
ActionParsnipzenon_: its an updates server which runs on the network, professional companies have them so easch server doesn't use the new to update from01:23
urlin2utelnetter, download supergrub to boot into the usb and install the grub bootloader from there one command and a update-grub.01:23
ActionParsnipzenon_: how would you updte a windows PC without web connection and without WSUS?01:24
zenon_I'm noob to ervers too =/01:24
syn-ackActionParsnip, You'd use BITS01:24
zenon_can do addressing on the most part01:24
Vovkcheers01:24
Vovkturning on everything in bios fixed01:24
ActionParsnipsyn-ack: bits uses the web..01:24
Vovknot sure how windows effected BIOS, but should be good now.01:24
ActionParsnipzenon_: how do you update windows before going on the web...01:24
recon_lapzenon_; been running ubuntu since 2006 without anti virus software and never got a virus01:24
syn-ackThats true01:24
zenon_routers just I don't know all of it01:25

hayerno.01:25
hayerthere is no "networking" service01:25
zenon_I'm refreshed to the point of knowing I need all the sp's & security updates for the sp's01:25
ActionParsniphayer: ok, if you run:  sudo lshw -C network    do you see the device?01:25
zenon_exe's01:26

* Lint wonders what OS kernel.org was running without an antivirus software01:26
Vovklol i am not hayer01:26
zenon_brb scrolling right back to see what I missed01:26
ActionParsnipzenon_: but what about if you need more that you don't have, its clunky as anything for very little gain01:27
hayerit says "DISABLED"..01:27
Vovkwhat does lshw -C Network show hayer?01:27
lwizardlis there a way block a ubuntu system from internet access but allow for lan connections ? basically I want to be able to transfer files locally but not globally01:27
ActionParsniphayer: is there a switch to enable or disable networking?01:27
ActionParsniplwizardl: you could set no DNS servers, then set the hostnames in /etc/hosts01:27
urlin2utelnetter, if you use the supergrub disc to get in to the usb OS I can give you the command to load the grub bootloader.01:27
zenon_when I get to security software with windows I give up I don't want to pay for what is'nt securing me01:27
hayerActionParsnip: i ask u.01:28

bazhanglets get back to ubuntu support. windows chat in ##windows01:28
zenon_I know linux is more secure anyway01:29
goddardrecon_lap: at least moderately01:29
Vovkzenon - if you are paranoid, you can use Firestarter to get a firewall set up01:29
Vovkit's an interface for iptables, which you can read about01:29
bazhangVovk, its been displaced by ufw/gufw01:29
Vovklinux + firewall + sane user access control = basically good01:29
zenon_thats not tech advice ^^01:29
recon_lapas far as i recall ubuntu has all ports closed by default01:29
Vovkah, did not know that bazhang01:29
syn-ackbazhang, whaaaa?01:29
goddardpersonally i think the "firewalls" suck for linux01:29
Vovkgoddard, hmm?01:30
ActionParsniphayer: look at the keyboard and such01:30
Vovkblocks access to certain ports01:30
ActionParsniphayer: or you may have a hard switch01:30
goddardVovk: well i mean it in the sense that the GUI sucks01:30
Vovkand can forward ports to other ones01:30
zenon_thank you for all advice01:30
Wargasmzenon_: I use firestarter... you can sit there and watch the traffic if you want01:30
Vovkwhat else do you want a firewall to do?01:30
_schism_anyone running ksplice?01:30
zenon_scrolling back now01:30
syn-ackgoddard, There's nothing wrong with iptables in and of it's self, but nothing compares to ipw, imo01:30
goddardVovk: make it easier less work01:30
ActionParsniphayer: you can also use network manager to enable / disable connections01:30
zenon_thats what I want.01:30
hayerActionParsnip: nope, nothing - its a desktop running server01:30
zenon_cheers01:31

Vovkalso i would love 3D acceleration, tho the drivers used to be available in what used to be called the Restricted Drivers Manager01:51
Vovkthat manager now shows 0 drivers01:51

Vovkapparently unity can't run on a vanilla install with 9800 gt01:51
Vovktho apparently unity is crap01:51

hayerJust same old "Link encap: Ethernet.. " still no ip etc01:52
kopiloI have used nouveau drivers with 9800GT was fine for 2D stuff01:52
ActionParsnipVovk: a software's appeal and quality is a personal thing. Some folks love unity, some hate it01:52
Vovki plan to give unity a try01:52
ActionParsnipVovk: so it is completely subjective, its like ANY software you can name01:52
Vovkif it's anywhere as configurable as fluxbox, and doesn't eat a stupid amount of resources, i'll probably stick with it out of laziness01:52

Nach0zhey guys, need some help :/ I seem to have ROYALLY JACKED UP my ~ folder :/02:31
Nach0zit's got me as the owner when I do ll, but I can't even cd into it unless I'm root02:31
Dr_willisNach0z:  check the ownership  of /home/yourusername  also02:32
Dr_willisand the permissions.02:32
Dr_willisbbl - work time for me.02:32
Nach0zthat's the first thing I checked :/02:32
Nach0zstill no dice.02:32
ActionParsnipNach0z: is the folder markes as executable02:32
PancakezDescra: I believe the LGPL libraries can be used in programs with different licenses.  Pretty sure that's the reason the LGPL exists02:32
Nach0zActionParsnip: +x? believe so yes02:32

Nach0zT_H_X: check tha pastebin link there02:39
Nach0zand what's weird is that I reset all those permissions before I rebooted02:39
Nach0zwhen I rebooted again all the perms were changed up02:39
ActionParsnipNach0z: is your username 'vader'?02:40
T_H_XNach0z: check ls -ld / and  ls -ld /home02:40
clu3ActionParsnip, yep, i am actually running it as a script to add my todolist to the desktop background, everytime i start my day. https://github.com/clu3/ubuntu-desktop-todo-list ^^02:40
ActionParsnipclu3: nice, I have similar but its a post install script called: dostuff02:41
T_H_XNach0z: they shouldboth be drwxr-xr-x02:41
Nach0zActionParsnip: yeah that's me02:41
T_H_XNach0z: if not do chmod 755 / /home02:41
Nach0zT_H_X: they were, but owned by root02:41
T_H_XNach0z: thats fine02:41
Nach0zT_H_X: ActionParsnip: Here's the weird part. When I re-set the permissions and rebooted, the permissions got changed BACK to broken when I logged in02:42
Nach0zbut when I edited /etc/fstab to NOT have /dev/sda9 as /home/vader, and rebooted after fixing perms again, the permissions were all fixed and stuff when I rebooted again02:42
Nach0zalright. So new problem for yall then02:43
Nach0zI have a partition I want to mount as /home/vader, so how do I do this without breaking ubuntu? XD02:44
T_H_XNach0z: maybe the drive wasnt mounted when you fixed the perms.02:44
Mavrick95i cant find the xorg.conf file through console mode, it is not found. can it be the reason why my computer is booting to a black screen?02:44
clu3ActionParsnip, nice. i find todolist in the background image so much easier than opening another todolist app02:44
T_H_XNach0z: are you forcing uid and gid via fstab?02:44
Nach0zT_H_X: not a dang clue. not entirely sure how to check either to be honest02:45
Nach0zthe options were nodev,nosuid though02:46

Mavrick95when i try to boot up my computer, before the black screen hits, i can see a line that says "load fallback graphics = [fail]". does that mean I lack ubuntu's standard drivers necessary to solve the black screen issue? i traced back my problem to ati's proprietary graphics, need to remove it.02:51

lilja_Hi all. I am trying to install ubuntu alongside Mint 11. Even if I wanted to replace Mint I can't. I've burned 3 iso dvds (correctly) and they do not boot even when I f12 and go from the DVD (I am using a toshiba satellite laptop). I'm more than a bit irritated at this point. I don't have room on my usb device to do it from there. Suggestions? Thanks in advance.03:37

lilja_I don't remember for the Mint 12 Lisa disc what the message was, but the others do not display any.. they simply do not work at all. Ubuntu ends up just taking several minutes of the cursor moving down, then it suddenly boots as Mint 11 again. Per specs do you need to know more than which toshiba laptop I am using? Such as how much RAM, etc?03:44
cfhowlettlilja_: is this a dual boot?03:44
lilja_I don't have it set up that way. Just Mint 11 right now, and this morning I had to redo that as apparently no swap drive was created the first time it was installed.03:45
cfhowlettlilja_: are you able to play or operate any other cd's in that disk?  Mine was doing the same thing and I learned that it had actually failed.  Confirmed as it didn't show up in the Places menu...03:45
lilja_oh you mean the integrity of the disk itself?03:46
ActionParsnipVako: are you running this in VMWare?03:46

lilja_Ah03:47
lilja_I sure hope not.03:47
lilja_Is there a test I can run for that?03:47
cfhowlettlilja_: my replacement cost $69.  Test: stick in a music cd.  If it plays, you're good.  If not...03:48
superdave321How do I keep transmission from using too much memory and crashing itself and every other app i'm running?03:48
ActionParsnipVako: I'd ask in #vmware to make sure the network config is correct03:48
lilja_*facepalm I definitely don't have $69 lol. Well I know there is another way to install it like I have a tablet or something but I tried that when I still had vista on this thing and it could never get past not unmounting the CD/DVDROM.03:49

ferris-when i attempt to boot an hp laptop with linux i get to the grub but whenever i attempt to boot to the ubuntu the screen goes blank/black and stays that way... the os doesn't display on the screen... i thought their were some parameters such as noacpi for video... but i do not remember what they are... any help would be much apprecieated.04:02

ferris-i have tried novga but that does nothing04:02
Oerwaggy how did you try to remove gflx ? /usr/share/ati/amd-uninstall.sh ?04:03
ActionParsnipferris-: try the boot option: nomodeset04:03
ferris-thanks ActionParsnip04:04
ActionParsnipferris-: if you use an nvidia gpu use: nouveau.blacklist=104:04
waggysaxOer, I tried that, no such file04:05
superdave321ActionParsnip: here's the log entries that caught my eye: http://paste.ubuntu.com/834786/04:06
ferris-looks like nomodeset worked04:07
ActionParsnipferris-: probably some intel rubbish, or ati gpu then :)04:08

ActionParsnipsuperdave321: if you run transmission as a new user, is it the same?04:08
Oerwaggysax, all i know is an old way on natty >> http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Natty_Installation_Guide#Removing_Catalyst.2Ffglrx04:08
superdave321ActionParsnip: Gah, i'd rather not, i've got a million and one things running at the moment...04:09
superdave321ActionParsnip: rather not try, that is04:09
ActionParsnipsuperdave321: it won't affect that in any way...04:10
ActionParsnipsuperdave321: each user has its own torrents, so running it as a different user won't affect any other users torrents04:11
superdave321ActionParsnip: i'm just saying that i'd rather not log out and try. unless i'm assuming incorrectly...04:12
ActionParsnipsuperdave321: making a new user and running the app there will test if your settings are causing the issue. If the app misbehaves as the new user with vanilla settings then your settings are the issue, if its the same then it is the application itself at fault04:12
ActionParsnipsuperdave321: yes, you would need to log out04:12
ActionParsnipsuperdave321: but its something very useful to test04:13
superdave321ActionParsnip: ok. I'll wrap up and test it. get back with you for log results.04:14

rubst3ri want to try ubuntu but i don't know which version 32bits or 64bits and kubuntu or xubuntu??? and what is the best thing to do to install it alonside windows? do i have to create a new partition first?04:27
ActionParsniprubst3r: if you just want to try the OS, you can boot a liveCD or USB and use the OS there, in RAM04:27
ActionParsniprubst3r: The installer can resize your NTFS, If you use Win7 it can resize it's own NTFS partition and leave free space too04:28

zykotick9bobenhaus: just want to point out that "default ppa's" doesn't make sense, PPAs are 3rd party repositories that you add to ubuntu05:17
zykotick9Mikee73: vbox doesn't have any hardware acceleration, the 3d is software (you don't get direct hardware access from a VM)05:18
zykotick9Mikee73: prior to enabling 3d in the VM, you where using 2d, which can be faster for some things05:18

Mikee73are you sure? I though that I could still get access to real hardaware 3d, even in virtual box...05:19
zykotick9Mikee73: not in VBox, you're using a vbox video driver, not the actual cards video driver05:20
Mikee73if you're right that maybe this explains my problem. Hwever: if I run glxinfo, I see "chropmium" as the video card rasterizer rather than software05:20
zykotick9Mikee73: you can't use ATI/Nvidia/anyother driver inside Vbox05:20
ActionParsnipMavrick95: as long as udev doen't try to load the module05:21
ActionParsnipMavrick95: you could blacklist the module too05:21
MartyMacFlyanyone know the official release date of ubuntu 12.0405:21
zykotick9MartyMacFly: i could tell you the year and month :p05:21
Mikee73I see. But I still have two options" use Chromium rendering or software rasterizer. Wouldnt it make more sense that Chromium (i.e. hardware ?) would be fatsre than software rasterizer?? But I get only 60 (!) FPS with Chromium and 350 FPS with software rasterizer.. Strange//05:22
MartyMacFlyLOL... I think it's some time in april..?05:22
ActionParsnipMikee73: I suggest you use something like LXDE or XFCE in virtualbox, it will make the virtual system impact less on the host05:22
zykotick9Mikee73: 3d has a lot more overhead when your software emulating it05:22
Mikee73ActionParsnip: I actually dont see much load on my host...05:22
Mikee73zykotick9: so you suggest I should stay with software rasterizer rather than trying to tamper with Chromium?05:24
zykotick9Mikee73: not if you need 3d05:24
ActionParsnipMikee73: what is the purpose of the VM?05:25
Mikee73zykotick9: yes, I need 3d but with "hardware" 3d (i.e. chroimium, even though I have Nviida) i get lower FPS rate than with software rasterizer05:25
zykotick9Mikee73: 3d is NOT hardware!05:25
ActionParsnip Mikee73: what is the purpose of the VM?05:27
ImTheDudehello05:27
Mikee73zykotick9: I see, didnt know that... So the bottom line is: what is the optimum setting for my Ubuntu... Now I have software rasterization and get 350 FPS05:27
ActionParsnipImTheDude: hi05:27
Anthonycan anyone help me with grub rescue error05:27
ActionParsnipAnthony: I'd suggest booting to liveCD, chroot and fix there05:27
ImTheDudeanthony you tryed a duel install of ubuntu05:28
zykotick9Mikee73: software will probably going to be faster then the "software emulated 3d"05:28
zykotick9is*05:28
Mikee73ActionParsnip: I have Win7 with a lot of stuff and need to run sophisticated imaging software that runs under linux. Cannot afford partition or new comp...05:28
Anthonyi dont have windows installed05:28
Anthonychroot is name of live cd05:28
ActionParsnipAnthony: chroot is a command on the ubuntu livecd05:29
ActionParsnipMikee73: i'm guessing its 3D software05:29
Anthonyi jsut type it in the cmd box or in the erro propmt05:30
ActionParsnipAnthony: its not a case of just typing the command05:30
zykotick9!grub2 | Anthony05:30
ubottuAnthony: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 - See !grub1 for releases before Karmic (9.10)05:30
Anthonythen can you tell me how to do it pleasdwe05:30
Mikee73ActionParsnip: it runs faster when using 3d, if I have it disabled it gives me "OpenGL error: no pincher..." and runs slower05:30
ActionParsnipAnthony: I suggest you research, rather than try and guess. You will be less likely to do more damage05:30
Mikee73ActionParsnip: Im not sure Im using right terms, maybe I'm confusing 3D with OpenGL05:31
ActionParsnipMikee73: I'd say maybe, try it is all I can say (if you haven't already)05:32
Anthonywhaty do i look up05:32
ActionParsnipMikee73: you do realise that ubuntu uses very little drive space05:32
amithii05:33
ActionParsnipAnthony: I'll find it for you. It will be less frustrating for everyone. Websearching: ubuntu chroot   is clearly a challenge05:33
=== amit is now known as Guest69288
Mikee73ActionParsnip: yes, so you sugggest installing a partition ? But then I will not be able to simultaneously run Ubuntu and Windows05:33
ActionParsnipAnthony: www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/09/live-usb-sticking-grub-2-video/05:33
ActionParsnipMikee73: a dual boot will give the resources you are running windows with, to ubuntu as well as native hardware access05:34
Guest69288I cant open some apps from dash after I install unity 5 in Ubuntu 11.10.. using ppa:unity-team/staging05:34
ActionParsnipGuest69288: contact the ppa maintainer05:34
Guest69288ActionParsnip, I removed the ppa using ppa-purge... still not working05:36
ActionParsnipGuest69288: then I suggest you run:  unity --reset   to get default settings05:37
ActionParsnipGuest69288: you may want to reinstall unity to make sure you are using the official package and its configs05:37
joallard_What is a good IRC client for ubuntu?05:38
ActionParsnipjoallard_: irssi, pidgin, empathy, xchat, weechat, kopete05:38
ActionParsnipjoallard_: all are great05:38
joallard_ActionParsnip, what's "the best"05:38
zykotick9!best | joallard_05:38
ubottujoallard_: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.05:38
joallard_I'm using xchat right now, but it's pretty buggy05:39
joallard_Hence the quotes05:39
Mikee73allright guys, going to sleep, thx05:39
zykotick9joallard_: ask 50 people, get 50 different answers, it's a useless question05:39
ActionParsnipjoallard_: there is no single best app for anything05:39
joallard_Let me reask that05:39
ActionParsnipjoallard_: its like asking "What is the best colour?"05:39
joallard_I don't think so05:40
joallard_I am experiencing frustration right now05:40
ActionParsnipjoallard_: it is, because none are best. ALl you will get are people's opinions05:40
graftubottu, that kind of moral relativism will not stand!05:41
ubottugraft: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)05:41
joallard_Some are better for some people, right?05:41
graftubottu: with opinions like that, you're not05:41
ubottugraft: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)05:41
ActionParsnipjoallard_: if one app was best above all others then nobody would use anything else would they05:41
ActionParsnipjoallard_: the other apps would die out05:41
joallard_People could be "wrong"05:41
graftActionParsnip: what is this, natural selection?05:41
ActionParsnipjoallard_: all the irc clients are simulataneously the best and worst at the same time05:42
joallard_Okay, pass.05:42
joallard_How do I debug xchat?05:42
graftwhat's the bug?05:42
ActionParsnipjoallard_: try it, if you like it, use it. If not, try another until you find something you like05:42
joallard_Segmentation fault05:42
joallard_Crash05:42
graftthat's a pretty bad one... from the repository?05:42
joallard_Yes.05:43
graftwell, (1) use something else, or (2) see if you can find a different version of xchat05:43
ActionParsnipjoallard_: you are using an OS which triumphs on freedom and choice, yet you seem to want a room of complete strangers to TELL you what to think and use? smells like microsoft to me..05:43
joallard_I'm used to seeing *a lot* of bugs in my ubuntu experience. *frustration*05:43
superdave321ActionParsnip: you remember how I was having that problem with transmission crashing everything? i tried that on another computer, and it worked fine.05:43
joallard_"<joallard_> Okay, pass."05:43
ActionParsnipsuperdave321: that will have different config to the one you are on now, and maybe a different version of the app. Hence why I recommended makeing a new user05:44
Mavrick95ActionParsnip: do you think that blacklisting the xorg file might work?05:44
ActionParsnipjoallard_: I use irssi and pidgin05:44
graftjoallard_: try pidgin or irssi, they're both great05:44
joallard_Thank you, but how do I debug xchat?05:44
ActionParsnipMavrick95: you'd blacklist the frglrx module so it won't be loaded05:44
graftjoallard_: maybe you can run it through gdb, but if it's just seg faulting i would try compiling it yourself or downloading a different version of it05:44
superdave321ActionParsnip: so how can I get this one working? I'd rather keep it to one user...05:45
joallard_I don't have the debugging symbols for it. How do I get them?05:45
graftjoallard_: you build it yourself05:45
joallard_The symbols will automatically be there?05:45
graftjoallard_: if you include them when you build it, yes05:45
joallard_Then how do I do that?05:46
graftjoallard_: why do you want to go to this much trouble to fix xchat?05:46
graftjoallard_: wouldn't it be easier to use irssi or pidgin?05:46
ActionParsnipsuperdave321: its just to test, thats all05:46
joallard_That's until I find another bug in another program05:46
joallard_Bugs ought to be fixed05:46
ActionParsnipjoallard_: war ought not to happen05:47
jaghi05:47
joallard_There is an outrageous number of bugs in ubuntu05:47
superdave321ActionParsnip: Ahh. ok. so where should I start for troubleshooting the problem setting(s)?05:47
zykotick9joallard_: ubuntu is not about stability05:47
joallard_ActionParsnip: so we shall encourage it and not try to stop it, right?05:47
ActionParsnipjoallard_: same as in windows, as the song goes "every OS sucks"05:47
ActionParsnipjoallard_: indeed and there are bug fixes and so forth solving them05:47
jagcant seem to get xrandr to work with .xsessionrc.. it looks like it calls, but reverts once desktop fully loaded -- (the xrandr command works manually in xterm). Any geniuses?05:47
graftjoallard_: which distribution are you using?05:48
joallard_Oneiric05:48
graftjoallard_: and what version of xchat?05:48
joallard_0.3005:48
Mavrick95ActionParsnip: but the fglrx is already removed from the system, does it matter if i black list it?05:48
graftjoallard_: where did you get xchat version 0.30?05:48
zykotick9!info xchat05:48
joallard_ActionParsnip: well, I have not seen important bugs in Windows as the ones I have seen in Ubuntu05:48
ubottuxchat (source: xchat): IRC client for X similar to AmIRC. In component universe, is optional. Version 2.8.8-3ubuntu8 (oneiric), package size 350 kB, installed size 928 kB05:48
joallard_graft: already packaged from the repos05:48
graftjoallard_: no, the version in the repository is 2.8.805:49
jagso what do i use instead of .xsessionrc << is this supported in oneiric ?05:49
ActionParsnipjoallard_: exactly, the ubuntu ones are just more visible. That's all05:49
VexiantYo, if I do a Disk Encryption, I will still be able to access folders and what-not, yes?05:49
ActionParsnipjoallard_: could try xchat-gnome05:49
joallard_I meant xchat-gnome05:49
ActionParsnipjoallard_: then try xchat05:49
graftxchat seems to work just fine05:49
joallard_ActionParsnip: Nope. For example, in ubuntu, sometimes unity/X will crash on suspend/resume. Never seen that kind of important bug in Windows.05:50
ActionParsnipjoallard_: or maybe if you rename the xchat config folder, so a new one can be made, it will behave. Kill xchat off, first :)05:50
jagany gurus ?05:50
joallard_ActionParsnip: Even with the bug filed, nothing gets done05:50
VexiantYo, if I do a Disk Encryption, I will still be able to access folders and what-not, yes?05:50
szal!repeat | Vexiant05:50
ubottuVexiant: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/05:50
ActionParsnipjoallard_: try uninstalling an application in safe mode in Windows vista05:50
urlin2uVexiant, how do you plan to encrypt? yes from the running OS only.05:50
joallard_ActionParsnip: Vista is not the latest version. 7 is.05:50
ActionParsnipjoallard_: it can't be dnoe without some clever registry hacking05:50
syddrafI have an ubuntu install on partition /dev/sdb2 that is finally configured just the way I want it. Is it possible to wholesale copy it over to /dev/sdc2?05:50
VexiantWhat exactly is the point of it and what does it do?05:50
jagVexiant, and of course from rescue too.. but u may have to type commands and stuff05:51
ActionParsnipjoallard_: its still supported an updates are made for it05:51
Vexiantok, thanks05:51
ActionParsnipjoallard_: if you call microsoft with an issue in Vista, they will support you05:51
joallard_ActionParsnip: It's not that I don't like Ubuntu; I love the Linux mentality and everything. But damn the bugs are hard to stomach05:51
urlin2uVexiant, or from a encrypted hd if you open it, your question is really lacking details.05:51
jagVexiant, if someone steals your computer, they won't be able to see what's on it05:51
joallard_ActionParsnip: If you call Canonical with an issue in Oneiric, they won't05:51
ActionParsnipjoallard_: try the config folder rename as I suggested05:51
ddddHi, how do i install windows wireless adapter on 11.10?05:51
ActionParsnipjoallard_: I'm simply stating that Windows has its share of stupid bugs05:52
ActionParsnipdddd: never heard of one of those, You sure its not just a regualt adapter..?05:52
joallard_ActionParsnip: And I'm simply stating that they're not as annoying and as crippling as Ubuntu's05:52
ActionParsnipjoallard_: remember blaster?05:52
urlin2udddd, there is a wiki on usb wireless and ones known to work.05:52
ActionParsnipjoallard_: and ALL the systems it nuked05:52
joallard_And that I feel an awful lot of frustration because of them, in comparison to Windows05:52
ActionParsnipjoallard_: have you done as I suggested yet? Renaming the xchat config folder after closing the app?05:53
joallard_you mean ~/.config ?05:53
graftthe only thing i ever have a problem with on ubuntu is suspend/resume05:53
graftnetworking stuff is way better05:53
ddddi have a dlink adapter05:53

EndafyDropping paid support for Kubuntu is so retarded, I am outraged and am quitting Ubuntu for good. Really dropping KDE is really stupid. Fuck your stupid ass ugly useless UI. I hope all of you drown in your own watery dihereah. From the start it has been about the same color. I have always hated Gnome and if you put half the effort into making KDE do what you expext Gnome to do then you might have had desktop dominence. This is good06:27
Endafybye for good, dont care if my IP gets banned, your OS is complete and utter shit. Fuck you developers! Forcing shit is what Microsoft and Apple does, and I hope all of you rot!06:27

mib_tyvhi, thunderbird is showing under packages that would be removed with apt-get's autoremove. how do i make the system see it as a normal package?06:33
ActionParsnipmib_tyv: try:  sudo apt-get --reinstall install thunderbird06:34
ActionParsnipmib_tyv: you removed one of its deps more than likely, so it gets marked for removal06:34
mib_tyvActionParsnip: aha, a *reinstall*. let me try that.06:34
mib_tyvActionParsnip: I don't know, but a reinstall fixed it. Thanks!06:36
ActionParsnipmib_tyv: you removed one of the deps. apps must have all mandatory deps for them to not be marked for removeal. You probably just installed 2 packages which squared off the packages06:37

ramstaso how will i remove them07:14
ramstathe only thing i really want is gnomeshell lol07:14
ActionParsnipramsta: I'd reinstall, the changes they make are hugs and removing them will probably leave your OS in a less than decent state07:14
ActionParsnipramsta: if you want gnome3, install oneiric07:14
ramstaso should i reinstalled and then isntall oneiric07:14

shadowh511OpenSesame: did you back up your data?08:20

marnoldActionParsnip, it was designed for people who can't use touchpads08:20
urlin2uthinking08:20
OpenSesameWell I don't need because I also just fresh installed W708:20
shadowh511OpenSesame: okay, good.08:21
shadowh511OpenSesame: are you on the livecd now?08:21
urlin2uOpenSesame, you leave a unallocated space for ubuntu?08:21
OpenSesameI'm using another computer right now08:21
OpenSesameTrying to dualboot on my laptop08:21
ActionParsnipmarnold: if its connected to the same controller then you may be stuck08:21
shadowh511okay, can you get to a terminal on the laptop?08:21
OpenSesameWell I partitioned my hard drive into two. 250 GB each.08:21
OpenSesameSo there is one that is not allocated at the moment08:22
OpenSesameBut still somehow Ubuntu doesn't detect any OS08:22
shadowh511okay, want me to walk you through manual paritioning?08:22
OpenSesameSure, anything that works08:22
Ben64OpenSesame: did you install it already?08:22
marnoldwhat i thought08:22
urlin2uOpenSesame,is it a raid or uefi set up?08:22
ActionParsnipOpenSesame: 250gb for ubuntu is a lot :-)08:22
shadowh511okay, please open the install app08:22
marnoldhow would i figure that out08:23
OpenSesamein Windows? or restart with the live cd?08:23
shadowh511OpenSesame: on the live cd08:23
OpenSesameOk its loading and then08:23
shadowh511let me know when it's loaded08:23
Ben64OpenSesame: and then you'll install ubuntu onto the empty 250GB partition08:24
meerkatsI can extract alsa-driver_1.0.24+dfsg.orig.tar.bz2 wherever I can, cant i?08:24
kapzHi all! I have ubuntu 11.10 installed on desktop, can I use my cellphone as a webcam? Thanks a lot :)08:24
ActionParsnipmarnold: if you run: lsmod   you will see the loaded drivers. Anything that it isn't obvious what is, research it. You may have 2 mouse ones but i think its going to be the same module running both08:25
shadowh511kapz: what phone?08:25
Ben64meerkats: yes, but that is not the solution to your problem, will likely make more problems for you if you continue that path08:25
ActionParsnipmeerkats: sure. There is a handy ppa if you are not on oneiric08:25
meerkatsim in 11.10 oneiric08:26
OpenSesamehey shadowh511, loaded now08:26
ActionParsnipmarnold: there may be an option on the module to disable the pad. Or it may be in config of the OS08:26
meerkatsI have already seen latest stable alsa, by their site, is 1.0.25 released this year08:26
itsadantewould anyone here have any exp with jetway motherboards?08:26

meerkatshowever, my installation shows: Driver version:08:27
meerkatsLibrary version:    1.0.24.108:27
meerkatsUtilities version:  1.0.24.208:27
ActionParsnipThen run:  unp alsa-driver....  etc08:27
shadowh511OpenSesame: okay, head to the partitoning screen where it says where you want to install ubuntu to08:27
marnoldActionParsnip, i was hoping there was an easy way08:27
OpenSesamek give me a sec08:27
shadowh511kapz: I don't know of any way to do that D:08:27
meerkatssudo apt-get unp?08:27
marnoldthere were HAL rules for hardy08:28
ActionParsnipmeerkats: you missed the word install08:28
marnoldbut according to Dad they dontworknomoar08:28
meerkatsActionParsnip, I have downloaded manually both 1.0.24 and 1.0.25, should I get rid of both?08:28
meerkatsextracted em to a dir named "Compiled"08:28
ActionParsnipmeerkats: get 24, it matches the tools and utils08:29
mk0helloall! is it possible to change a theme in 12.04 alpha? i cannot stand buttons on the left side of a window.08:29
OpenSesameOkay, I'm there, again it says "This computer currently has no detected operating systems. What would you like to do?" Then it gives me two options;  1) Erase disk and install Ubuntu 2) Something else - You can create or resize partitions yourself, or choose multiple partitions for Ubuntu.08:29
Ben64!precise | mk008:30
shadowh511something else08:30
ubottumk0: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) will be the sixteenth release of Ubuntu. Codename announcement here: http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/784 - Blueprints at https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+108:30
OpenSesameOkay, but somehow I see free space  and its size is 500107MB08:30
mk0i know. i installed second alpha08:30
meerkatsActionParsnip, Got rid of both extracted 1.0.25 and 1.0.24 Do I need to ONLY extract 1.0.24 or do the nmp thing you just told me to do?08:31
shadowh511OpenSesame: your disk is clean08:31
OpenSesamewhich I dont think its correct because my HD is 500GB and I already partitioned into two 250GB08:31
marnoldit will also be the second release without gnome208:31
shadowh511OpenSesame: there is nothing on the disk08:31
OpenSesamewell shouldn't there be? I have w7 on it..08:31
OpenSesameso i don't quite get it :(08:31
shadowh511well, it seems there is nothing on your disk somehow08:32
marnoldluckly we has a good lxde variant08:32
OpenSesamewell what would you suggest?08:32
shadowh511OpenSesame: reinstalling windows08:32
OpenSesameI actually tried that too lol08:32
OpenSesameAnd I even partitioned during the installation08:32
meerkats!seen ActionParsnip08:32
ubottuI have no seen command08:32
urlin2uOpenSesame, you can boot windows right?08:32
shadowh511i think this is a sign from the powers that be08:32
marnold!package aufs08:33
OpenSesameyes I can08:33
OpenSesameI can boot it finely08:33
shadowh511O_O08:33
shadowh511voodoo disk08:33
urlin2uOpenSesame, okay then you likely have a raid set up that linux needs to have the right set up to read.08:33
OpenSesamepretty annoyed by this..08:33
OpenSesamei dont get what the problem is08:33
OpenSesamereally? but I have never set my hard drive as Raid before..08:34
Ben64OpenSesame: you must have some strange hard drive set up08:34
OpenSesamethen if so what should i do08:34
shadowh511OpenSesame: nuke everything and install ubuntu first08:34
shadowh511then go off the livecd and shrink ubuntu08:34
shadowh511then install windows08:35
alkisgAre there plans to switch thunderbird to the quick release cycle too, so that we have thunderbird 10, 11 etc  on Lucid? Or that was only for firefox?08:35
meerkatsdo duplicated source lists make synaptic run slower?08:35
urlin2uOpenSesame, go to the ubuntu forums and post there you will most likely get setup unless somebody here sees the situation that knows this stuff.08:35
shadowh511then reinstall ubuntu to ger grub back08:35
meerkatsor update manager?08:35
OpenSesameI see08:35
Ben64shadowh511: don't have to reinstall ubuntu to fix grub08:35
OpenSesameshadowh511, can i just install ubuntu right now then?08:35
shadowh511OpenSesame: yup08:35
shadowh511Ben64: I find it the most reliable way08:35
Ben64its silly08:36
OpenSesameand then shrink it after installation? and then install W7 after and then reinstall ubuntu again?08:36
urlin2ushadowh511, you are out of your area of knowledge here.08:36
Ben64OpenSesame: in the ubuntu installer, just use the manual partitioning and set ubuntu to use half the drive, would save the step of shrinking08:36
shadowh511Ben64 probably has a better way to do it08:36
shadowh511i was just suggesting the way I do ti08:37
OpenSesamelol08:37
OpenSesamei cant even install ubuntu08:37
shadowh511and it Works For Me (tm)08:37
Ben64OpenSesame: why not?08:37
shadowh511OpenSesame: probably a hardware raid card08:37
OpenSesameit pops a warning box saying No root file system. No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.08:37
Ben64yeah you need to make it08:37
OpenSesamewhen I click Install Now to the free space08:37
urlin2uOpenSesame, ignore this help it is not informed.08:37
OpenSesameah i se eok08:38
Ben64OpenSesame: what screen are you at right now08:38
OpenSesamestill pops that warning box..08:38
calamity_Heya guys, quick question: (13)Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80 - what does this mean and how do I fix it? :p08:38
OpenSesameit just says No root file system is defined.08:38
shadowh511calamity_: you have to run it as root08:38
shadowh511calamity_: type in sudo !!08:39
Ben64calamity_: what are you trying to do?08:39
shadowh511Ben64: looks like a http server to me08:39
Ben64OpenSesame: you need to create the partitions on the drive, at minimum a root partition (/) and a swap partition08:39
OpenSesameso click Add?08:39
calamity_Ben64, basically localhost, etc no longer connect, which is weird because it was working fine a few days ago and nothing much has changed.08:39
meerkatshow do I open alsa-driver_1.0.24+dfsg-0ubuntu2.debian.tar.bz2? tar -xjf doesnt seem to work08:39
Ben64calamity_: any port under 1024 can't be opened by a normal user08:40
urlin2uBen64, if the disc does not read the windows partition then building a partition is not solid advice.08:40
OpenSesamegot it, and it now tells me that I have not selected any partitions for use as swap space.08:40
Ben64OpenSesame: i'm not sure, I can't see what you're on08:40
calamity_Ben64, okay, so I just used root, and it's already running, apparently.08:40
OpenSesameshould i just continue? or08:40
Ben64urlin2u: he said he's fine with installing windows again afterwards08:40
calamity_Ben64, but I am still getting no result when I try to connect to the page08:41
urlin2uOpenSesame, go to the ubuntu forums and post your problem.08:41
Ben64calamity_: what program are you running for this08:41
urlin2uBen64, that is a stupid idea.08:41

urlin2uthink08:42
Ben64urlin2u: it will work08:42
calamity_Ben64, Apache208:43
susundbergmeerkats: then the package is wrong edian -- what does the tar -jxf <package-here> say ?08:43
susundbergmeerkats: not wrong edian but wrong format08:43
Ben64calamity_: you really shouldn't be running apache with sudo08:43
scarleomeerkats, try bunzip2 instead08:43
urlin2uBen64, glad you think so but it is advice that is not acceptable in this channel.08:43
tensorpuddingdebian.tar.bz2?08:43
tensorpuddingi've not seen debuild create that, it always creates debian.tar.gz in my experience08:44
tensorpuddingmaybe it's actually a gzip archive08:44
tensorpuddingcheck out what file says08:44
meerkatssusundberg, tar -xjf alsa-driver_1.0.24+dfsg-0ubuntu2.debian.tar.bz2 says nothing at all08:45

meerkatscan I use unp to extract that?08:47
Ben64meerkats: then bunzip2 should extract it08:47
susundbergmeerkats: add -v so it shows the files it extracts08:47

meerkatsBen64, my synaptic: http://imagebin.org/19803209:10

frigBen64 the Netbook Remix interface is very strange... I cant seem to find any "Computer"09:12
meerkatsalsa base is already there, so is alsa 1.0.24 (they are the same) and other 1.0.24 plugins (none for 64 bits, thats not my arquitecture), so I dont understand why I dont see the 1.0.24 drivers activated09:12

panax3ahhh just run puppy09:17
meerkatsBen64, 11.1009:17
rolandfrig: one uses gnome3 or that Unity thingy, Kubuntu uses KDE09:17
frigi just need one that runs faster than windows 7 :\09:17
Ben64meerkats: pastebin "lspci"09:17
rolandfrig: try them both!09:17
frigunderstood09:18
Ben64frig: you could install ubuntu, then install lubuntu on top and use lxde09:18
frigthats probably what ill end up doing09:18
scarleoHas anyone successfully imported browser data from to Chromium from Firefox? It just says "No supported browser found" for me09:18
Ben64frig: lxde is very lightweight, so should be speedy09:18
rolandfrig: or you could even put KDE along with Gnome and lxde09:18
JadedJacob When I set my resolution to 1024x768, after rebooting it always reverts back to the highest resolution my monitor supports, something crazy like 1600x120009:19

steven123Hi. I am looking for the tool used in Ubuntu 10.04 and up which generates a list of installation choice during install. This used to be debconf-get-selections, but this tool does not exist anymore.09:44

theadmin!clone | steven12309:45
ubottusteven123: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate09:45
ictxiangxinhi09:45
steven123theadmin, thanks. But that generates the list of installed packages only. As does dpkg --get-selections. I need the d-i script which keeps track of all the choices made during install09:47

steven123theadmin, thanks. I followed that guide to the tee. However, there's no mention of how to generate the preseed file based on a prior installation. There's an example, but I've been tweaking it and I've run multiple installs. I just can't get the options right :)09:49
theadminsteven123: Hm, I'm not sure about that, sorry09:50

flintwingelakpk: the t comes from the 1 in 1777 - the t is called the sticky bit. It means that only the owner of a file can delete it even though the perms of the directory are 777. ls gives you a quirky view of permissions becase the sticky bit didn't exist in early unix file systems10:42
lord-ivanstanley00 The while loop do i do while(;;) i do not know the condition to ues10:42

lordjjHello, I have a primary partition holding a windows, and an extended partition with 6 logical partitions inside it, 3 of which are /, /home, and swap for an existing distro. I want to set up a new distro with only a /, and swap. What's the best course of action? Creating a new primary partition for the new distro's /? And if I do so, can I share the swap of the existing distro? Or should I make a logical partition for the new distro inside the extended part11:41

LachezarHello. I am having a strange memory leak using du...11:47
macelfreshmy question is, I have a 500go space that i want to be accessible by both ubuntu and windows 7 (data disc), is it ok to use it as a whole for this purpose and what type should i specify?11:48
ikoniamacelfresh: it's not really the best option to do that11:49
macelfreshok11:50
N3M35I5macelfresh: if your on about using it as a junk partition to be read in both windows and ubuntu, go with ntfs woks fine for me11:50
ikoniamacelfresh: the only really cross-compatible file system is fat32 or ntfs11:50
ikoniamacelfresh: ntfs has a closed file system and "works" with linux, but is not %100 stable, although it is "fine", fat32 is stable with both, but has limitations such as file size11:50
N3M35I5if you use fat32, you wont beable to copy anything bigger than 4gb to it11:50
Ben64ntfs gets really weird in linux if you start running out of space11:51
aizensamaello11:51
aizensamasomeone can help me with my ubuntu ?11:52
macelfreshikonia, n3m35I5, ok so maybe i should set up a space for windows only, one for linux only and one common?11:52
navahi all11:52
N3M35I5tbh i'd go with ntfs. works fine for me11:52
N3M35I5but if your only going to copy small files (less than 4gb) go with fat3211:52
nava I make a mock-up for let users to choose want to have full screen with luncher or without it. where should i send it ?11:52

aizensamaflintwingel: yep, the adapter on VB is set to internal network12:07
macelfreshikonia, I have a last question, i have set up my partitions all right, but before i hit install now, there is this question. The question is in french so I'll translate it without being sure if it's the exact same in the english version of the ubuntu install. Anyway i need to specify where the boot programm should, aka on which partition. Which one should i choose? Thanks12:08
aizensamadoesn't that means it uses the network from my windows ?12:08
aizensamashould i set it to NAT ?12:08
flintwingelaizensama: "internal network" to vbox means "don't talk to anything other than other guests"12:08
flintwingelaizensama: either bridged (if you have a DHCP server on your network) or NAT12:09

bananenkampf-deMils_SD none can understand XD doesn't matter, install the package and be happy :) done the same12:16
flintwingelbananenkampf-de: in answer to your question " i wonder when NAT doesnt work".... if you have a guest that's acting as a server (maybe a webserver) you wouldn't want to use NAT as it would make it difficult to access the server12:16
bananenkampf-deflintwingel, okay - thank you. yes i read about this, it's possible to do port-forwarding with NAT but its difficult and stupid, for a server i use bridge :)12:17

theadminJadedJacob: ext4 has some new filesystem options (large fs support, extents, multiblock allocation etc), but most of the time ext3 and ext4 perform the same. ext3 has more compatibility though (older, better tested)... I use ext3 myself, can't complain heh13:23

lmontrieuxAdriannom, just install the latest Ubuntu and use something else, like Gnome 3, Xfce, KDE, you-name-it?13:46
theadminAdriannom: Install Xubuntu, Lubuntu or Kubuntu.13:46
DJones!nounity | Adriannom13:47
debo11.04 is much better than 11.10 from my point of view13:47
ubottuAdriannom: 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 !classic13:47

Is there some way I can restore the directory using only the <file> directory inside of 'increments' ?14:57

erik32533how do i do that14:58
TehAndrewRyanSorry if that didn't make any sense, basically what I mean is that the directory I want to backup is located inside of the folder 'increments', but every file inside of that directory is saved as a diff. I want to be able to restore the original files using the diffs, if that's possible.14:58

roastedsomeone235: ubuntu one is a lot like drop box15:13
roastedvooze: ah thats right.15:13
roastedvooze: I forgot that. I don't use this new fangled unity thing. but I'm not sure how well gnome shell would run in a VM so I figured I'd let unity stick around. :)15:13
someone235roasted, i can't use ubuntu one in server. it requires gnome :(15:13
erik32533ill be back in hour15:14
roastedsomeone235: oh on SERVER. I apologize, I'm not sure :(15:14

voozeroasted: after 2-3 days getting used to it, you cant live without it ;)15:15
someone235holstein, yes, but i want to choose any folder i want, and not just one folder15:15

wonderinggood day.. Is anyone here that can help me recognize a music player.. I have a creative mp3 that when usb plugged in, isn't recognized by the My Computer???  But it is "seen" because it is charging...17:01
Dr_williswondering:  it may have some 'disk drive mode' in its menus. check dmesg output when you plug it in.17:02
JadedJacobIs it a "drag and drop" player, or does it use specialized software like Windows Media Player or Itunes?17:02
wonderingdidn't need it with windows.  wondering if I am missing something.  sys is fully updated?17:03
Dr_willisIt could support both ways17:03

I compiled a package with a modified control file, Debian Wheezy's ZSNES 1.51 to function on Ubuntu without having to seek out an obscure update to ia32-libs. When I do install it, it does install, but debconf pops up at the last second (Not sure why there) and unlike other packages, this one doesn't want to provide the option to reinstall in case of install failure.17:27

JTS000IDI have a Lenovo W520 and I need to install Ubuntu. The Ubuntu Partners page my laptop is compatible with the Pre-Installed image. I called Lenovo and they say they don't support Ubuntu. The Ubuntu website says W520 is compatible with 10.10 (pre-installed only, with notes).18:05
esuavefor example.. when i type: w... it sits.. than i have to hit like the spacebar key to see the results18:06

CharminTheMooseAnyone know why when I copy a file into a tmpfs mounted directory, the RAM usage doubles or so from the size of the file? Say I have a 300mb file, I copy it and free reports 600MB used as cache afterwards. :/18:09
memandzykotick9, thanks -_-18:09
sun_devilAnyone ever use CUPS for printing?18:09

zykotick9mivulf: use something like "gnome-terminal -e vim"18:14
axisysis this a bug?18:14
mbeierlCharminTheMoose, is the tmpfs ram-backed?  Cache from reading the file from the original and then the ramfs backed tmpfs, perhaps?18:15

mbeierlesuave, is it that the display lags, or there really is no output?  Is this in a gnome-terminal, x-term, or...?  What happens if you attempt to copy-n-paste the output using the mouse to select over the text that ought to be there?18:17
kulhasis this the official channel of ubuntu ?18:17
aeon-ltdkulhas: yes18:17
mbeierlbullgard4, is your question "why does it not power off", or "why are some processes still running and the shutdown never completes?"18:18
ethereticzykotick9: so there are an unholy alliance between the pulse/gnome/ubuntu developers? haven't mentioned unity yet...18:18

aeon-ltdmivulf: that's if you use gnome terminal of course18:19
mbeierlesuave, and input the command into...?  What type of interface?  gnome-terminal, xterm, tty (ctrl-alt-f1)?18:19
captainjamieHello everyone. Is it off topic if I ask for recommendations on which tablet I should buy? Because I want to know which type is best at installing Ubuntu on (or at least the Kubuntu mobile one)18:19
SimeonKhi, how can i run a command in chroot mode without having to type the full path. (e.g. "chroot /chrt /bin/bash -c ls")18:20
mbeierlbullgard4, do you happen to have remote filesystems, such as NFS, mounted?18:20
bullgard4captainjamie: Google for 'HCL' and 'Ubuntu'.18:20
zykotick9mbeierl: "sudo mount IP:/Sharename /MOUNTPOINT" should autodetect for NFS18:20
esuavembeierl: im using ubuntu server.. ssh'ed in how can i tell?18:20
mbeierlbullgard4, I've seen systems refuse to halt due to I/O locks in NFS, but that's been a while18:20
captainjamiebullgard4: Ok thanks18:21
mbeierlesuave, oh.  you just told me.  You are using ssh.  What is the local computer running?18:21
esuavembeierl: mac18:21
bullgard4mbeierl: There is no NFS installed on this computer. --18:21
mbeierlesuave, could it be a problem with the mac ssh client setting somehow?18:22
esuavembeierl: ok thanks lemme try restarting the client18:22
bullgard4mbeierl: '~$ mount' does not show any remote filesysrewm18:22
bullgard4mbeierl: '~$ mount' does not show any remote filesystem.18:23
mbeierlbullgard4, k.  there should be a sysreq key combo that tells what programs are still running during the shutdown.  Gimme a moment to look them up18:23
mbeierlbullgard4, there it is: "T".  ctrl+alt+sysrq+t should list what program is still running, preventing the shutdown.  q.v. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key18:25
mbeierlcan anyone correct me, or is the stock kernel compiled with sysrq support?  I'm not on an ubuntu system at the moment.18:25
pangolinmbeierl: it is18:26
occupantso why are ubuntu kernels so large? why isn't everything just a module?18:26
miquehello18:27
pangolinoccupant: not really a question for this channel, my want to ask the kernel team.18:27
pangolins/my/might/18:27
munxlol18:27
munxsorry, been a couple years since i've been here18:28
mbeierlpangolin, thanks!18:28
bullgard4mbeierl: I am using a Thinkpad T61. Ctrl+Alt+SysRq+T responds: "[timestamp] SysRq : Show State" with a _ prompt on the new line. Nothing more. How to proceed?18:29
pangolinoccupant: #ubuntu-kernel should be the proper place to ask18:29
occupantah, thanks18:29
pangolinoccupant: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam#Communications could be helpful to you also18:29
bullgard4occupant: Because Linus Torvalds wants it so.18:30
pangolinbullgard4: that is not helpful.18:30
occupantcompared to other distros, I mean18:30
mbeierlbullgard4, you did that combo during the shutdown, or at a tty?18:30
aestetixHey, if there's a package on ubuntu LTS that is outdated, is it safe to manually update the package?18:31
pangolinoccupant: yeah, #ubuntu-kernel can probably help you a lot more.18:31
crizzy_aestetix: define manually.. i'd rather find some PPA for that package18:32
bullgard4mbeierl: at a tty. The same virtual console where I issued  the shutdown command before.18:32
aestetixcrizzy_: ok. What's the benefit of using LTS, then?18:32
aestetixIt seems like a lot of stuff is outdated, even on the latest version18:32
pangolinaestetix: LTS aims for stability and packages do get security updates and major bug fixes.18:32
esuavePici: it was the terminal application i was using locally to ssh into my machine.. lol there was nothing wrong with the server its self.. thanks mbeierl18:32
crizzy_aestetix: exactly what it says, 'long term support'18:32
mbeierlbullgard4, there's also sysrq+w that should show only blocked processes.  but it sounds like something is not quire right with this.  Once in that state, could you try a forced reboot with "sysrq+reisub"  (that's sysrq+r, then sysrq+e, etc)18:33
crizzy_aestetix: for regular desktops, the answer is "not much", for corporate employments.. "a lot"18:33
crizzy_aestetix: new LTS release will come in 2 months, anyway18:33
mbeierlesuave, great!  pici (fyi^)18:33
aestetixAh, ok.18:33
pangolinaestetix: basically it means that the latest and greatest packages won't be always be ported back to 10.04 but LTS will remain stable.18:33
mbeierlesuave, sorry - I see you let pici know too, thanks!18:33
