erik32533will the one on lauchpad01:41
holsteinzingaro: sure... but when i have seen that issue, i have ran sudo update-grub as urlin2u suggests, and that i mentioned earlier, and it just picks up windows... which is why i asked if you could see/mount the windows partition.. and i didnt hear back from you on that01:42
erik32533im running version 701:42

urlin2u_Tristan, you boot the ubuntu cd or thumb, identify which please.02:05
its_me_Tristan : which did you install first?02:05
holsteinzingaro: i would change that from "#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0" to "GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=8" ... removing the "#" and changing 0 to 8 or so02:05
its_me_Tristan : First Windows 7 and then Ubuntu I guess?02:05

holsteinyou might want to change GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true02:08
urlin2usansnumbers, the sda4 is the container of sda5 it is on the edge of sda5 easier to just use the lines naming the partitikons.02:09

urlin2u_Tristan, even better since you getting a uefi response this is not a noob area go to the ubuntu forums and start a thread.02:17

devsysHey guys, quick question I am running ubuntu 11.10 server and want to make sure I have my web root secured. When I do a ps -aux | grep apache, I see that apache2 is running as user www-data. The confusing thing is if I do a ls -lah on /var/www, www-data is not listed as a user or group -- root is listed as the group. I checked /etc/groups and it isnt a member of the root group. The webserver works and serves files, just a little confused02:21
devsysIt's prettu much a outof the box install02:22
doug_if fsck is not working, how would I troubleshoot that?02:22
Ben64devsys: www-data doesn't need to own files to read them02:22

tigrangcurrent kernel is 3.0.0-15-generic02:24
doug_Ben64_: when I try to boot the partition, I get nothing, just a blinking cursor. When I run fsck, the test locks up and I have to hard restart02:24
egaregaDid you get this with earlier kernels?02:24
Ben64doug_: run fsck with -v02:25
tigrangegarega: I had 3.0.0-12 before, didn't work. Havent tried any other02:25
bagels_Hi evrywun!02:25
doug_Ben64_:  Ill try that. Also, when I tried to do a rcovery, it came up with a kernel panic, a VFS error i believe02:26
holsteintigrang: i would want to try 10.04.. the last LTS (long term support)02:26
bagels_Does anyone know a way to burn an mp3 playlist into an mp3 data cd?  Looking on google doesn't give me much useful info.02:26
holsteinbagels_: an mp3 data CD is just that.. just the data files.. if you have the mp3's, just drag them over on a data layout in the order of the playlist02:27
tigrangholstein: can I just use the kernel version 10.04 uses? And do you know which one that is?02:27
bagels_holstein the point would be I make a playlist, then burn it without having to recreate the playlist by hunting through different folders to find the ding dang songs manually02:28
holsteintigrang: i wouldnt even bother with that.. i would literally load up the live CD and check.. but i usually take the hard drive out of machines like that and test from CD so i can force powerdown or whatever02:28
tigrangholstein: try puting the computer to sleep from the live cd?02:29
holsteinbagels_: right.. but the burner wont care about that playlist...02:29
bagels_holstein, you know how Brasero makes CD's from playlist?02:29
holsteintigrang: like i said, you can usually sleep from live CD's and test that just fine.. thats on my normal routine that i do with new machines02:30
holsteinbagels_: sure.. but not data discs from audio playlists AFAIK..02:30
tigrangholstein: ok, ill try02:30
bagels_holstein I'm looking to burn 3 hours on one disc.  I know brasero doesn't, but it's you know, a pain to sift through all your music folders02:30

xanguajavierf_: F9 to show sidebar03:04
negativesubb1: well the easy way would be to just remove the ppa and then 'apt-get update' but it's not ideal03:05
javierf_xangua, ops, but sidebar is there all the time. But no cover art. If I go to plugins/extensions, there is nothing there, and I remember there used to be many of them03:05
jed852With this tarball I get a Linux 1 error.  cp: cannot create regular file '/tftpboot' : Permission denied03:05

negativejed852: are you sudo?03:06
xanguajavierf_: then go to software center and install the plugins you want that are listed in rhythmbox03:06
javierf_xangua, I think something goes wrong in the instalation after I unistalled it once, because not I have no plugins, there is no indicator... I tried normal install and from repositories03:06

ubottushafeeqes: 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 !classic03:19

negativebatbrat: since it's NTFS, do you have access to a windows machine?04:28

batbratThere is also the minute possibility that it was FAT32. That is rather unlikely though. It's been a while since I used this drive. But it has absolutely vital data. It's my backup drive. My original copy of the data is beyond recovery at the moment and through no fault of my own.04:28

DJones!nounity | rokyronnie08:34
ubotturokyronnie: 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 !classic08:34

overcluckerlinocisco: i'm not sure how being on ubuntu-server makes any difference to apt10:12
randomnewbWhat info info do you need?10:12
tanathikonia, because if it's the media, then it should see, 'Oh, this media doesn't support it' and alert the user10:12
ikoniatanath: how does it know ?10:13
tanathikonia, instead of letting the user burn thinking it'll work and possibly wasting discs10:13
tanathikonia, manufacturer id, perhaps?10:13
ikoniatanath: the only way it could know whould be to do a test burn,10:14

ikoniatanath: well, there "is" that many and each brand has many versions10:16
randomnewbThe CD too.10:16
scarleorandomnewb, where does it hang? Not % but what isit doing when hanging?10:16
tanathikonia, i think that's a common misconception. you can't tell what kind of disc you're getting before you buy. brand is irrelevant10:17
randomnewbInstalling after the partitions are set up.10:17
ikoniatanath: it's not a common misconception10:17
llutz_tanath: there are lists about media on several forums around the net. read atip of yours (wodim -atip), check them for known problems10:17
tanathikonia, you need the disc's media id to tell who manufactered it, which you can't get before buying10:18

theadminHalexander9000: We don't support "other" distributions. Only Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu and Lubuntu, specifically, as well as Edubuntu and Ubuntu Studio.10:25
llutz_tanath:  http://cdrecord.berlios.de/private/man/README/README.multi10:26
theadminacering: I don't think Conky does this (but it should be possible with some other software)10:26
aceringIn short, can I launch an application using conky by way of launchers?10:26
Halexander9000So, what you're saying is that I should risk it and try Ubuntu, after all those other failures?10:26
ikoniaacering: waiting longer than 60 seconds before asking again is a good start, you asked waited 60 seconds then started asking for help again10:26
aceringtheadmin, I want it embedded in conky10:26
theadminHalexander9000: We don't say that. All we say is we won't support you if you're using an unsupported distro.10:26
theadminacering: Repeating once every 10 minutes or so is acceptable, don't repeat too often10:26
aceringthanks for the advice colonel [ikonia]10:27
tanathllutz, don't suppose you can give me the tldr of that?10:27
bullgard4'~$ gedit /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.32/kernel/power/poweroff.c; /* * When the user hits Sys-Rq o to power down the machine this is the * callback we use. */ .' What is here meant by »callback«?10:27
theadminbullgard4: Try #ubuntu-devel , we don't really support development issues here.10:28
Halexander9000Fine. I'll get Ubuntu.10:28
bullgard4theadmin: You are in error. This is no development but actual Ubuntu practice.10:29
ikoniabullgard4: where are you getting that message ?10:29
theadminbullgard4: It is development since you are fiddling with source code10:29
theadminikonia: It's in the source files (kernel/power/poweroff.c)10:29
ikoniatheadmin: I konw, I want bullgard4 to answer10:29
ikoniabullgard4: where are you getting that message ?10:30
bullgard4theadmin: Your reasoning is ridiculous.10:30
randomnewbWhat is /var used for?10:30
overcluckerHalexander9000: get a low res texture pack. that;s what i use on my eeepc  904ha10:30
ikoniabullgard4: is this question an ubuntu support issue, or a generic kernel question ?10:30
Halexander9000I used optifine on windows overclucker! I never strayed away from the 16 px texture packs.10:30
bullgard4ikonia: I am referring to an actual Ubuntu program-10:30
theadminrandomnewb: "/var contains variable data files. This includes spool directories and files, administrative and logging data, and transient and temporary files."10:31
theadminrandomnewb: Give this a read: http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html10:31
ikoniabullgard4: which ubuntu program ?10:31
tanathllutz, i'm not finding that helpful. i'm not doing things manually, and it doesn't seem to tell me how to tell if it's in fact multisession10:32
overcluckerHalexander9000: performance on linux is still net very good, less capable hardware like with an eeepc, you'll really notice10:32
bullgard4ikonia: The name of the Ubuntu program is "poweroff".10:32
ikoniabullgard4: how do you launch it10:32
llutz_tanath: the system (wodim) sees your media as empty/non-multisession.10:32
ikoniabullgard4: as from what you are saying you are reading the power off function in the kernel10:32
tanathllutz, it's certainly not empty10:33
tanathllutz, and doesn't show that way in nautilus10:33
ikoniabullgard4: could you please clarify10:33
llutz_tanath: so either the media is broken or wodim is (i'd guess wodim is)10:33
bullgard4ikonia: "[11:32]<ikonia>bullgard4: how do you launch it" <- Please read 'man poweroff' for an answer.10:33
ikoniabullgard4: no, I'm asking you10:33
tanathllutz, disc seems fine10:33
tanathllutz, data, etc.. all good10:34
ikoniabullgard4: if you want help - respond to questions, don't tell me to read the man pages10:34
overcluckerHalexander9000: also, use sun-jre instead of openjdk10:34
tanathllutz, could it be because i burned an iso?10:34
ehsan_I have installed grub2 on usb and I want to do update-grub but it updates the one installed on my internal harddrive not the one that is on usb10:34
llutz_tanath: you burned an iso as multisession? you can't10:34
tanathllutz, it's just a data iso...10:35
tanathllutz, :(10:35
tanathllutz, if that can't be done, then it definitely should have warned me10:35
llutz_tanath: idk file a bugreport10:35
theadminehsan_: Run instead, "sudo grub-mkconfig -o /path/to/usb/boot/grub/grub.cfg"10:35
bullgard4ikonia: I have used the program 'poweroff' in the command '~$ sudo poweroff'.10:35
tanathllutz, enh, no time for that and i'll forget. ty though10:35
ikoniabullgard4: ok - if you look that's actually a symlink10:35
ikoniabullgard4: what is your actual questions10:36
bullgard4ikonia: Your message does not answer my question at the outset.10:36
ikoniabullgard4: because you have not asked a question10:36
ikoniabullgard4: or at least one that is clear10:36
bullgard4ikonia: I know that well. And It does not answer the question which I put at the outset.10:36
ikoniabullgard4: so if you have an ubuntu specific support question please ask10:36
bullgard4ikonia: Please read what I wrote bewfore and take notice and try to understand the meaning in it.10:37
aspirinanybody knows a software like itunes to sync ipad with ubuntu?10:37

ikoniaoverclucker: how is that even an ubuntu query10:42

ikoniabullgard4 it is NOT ubuntu made source code10:42

CJKayStupid Unity10:50
CJKaySo buggy10:51
ikoniaCJKay: want help or want to rant ?10:51
scarleorandomnewb, yes now I am :)10:51
CJKayJust to rant thanks10:51
CJKayAlthough actually10:51
ikoniaCJKay: this isn't the right channel - so don't do it10:51
randomnewbI'm installing now.10:51
CJKayI don't know if anyone's put in some form of support for it but Unity is a *massive* memory leaker over time10:51
randomnewbAt "Copying Files"10:52
ikoniaCJKay: we support unity here10:52
CJKaySo do I, just this issue really gets to me when I'm down to 400MB RAM left over just two days10:52
scarleorandomnewb, wubi installer?10:52
ikoniaI suspect you probably just have file systems cached as your machine is underused10:53
CJKayI drop caches regularly10:53
ikoniaCJKay: it's a feature the kernel does that is very useful to make use of spare ram10:53
scarleorandomnewb, and please address with username when writing10:53
ikoniaCJKay: how are you dropping the cache ?10:53
randomnewbscarleo I'm trying the installer from Live CD now.10:53
CJKaysudo sync10:53
CJKaysudo echo {1|2|3} > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches10:53
ikoniaCJKay: so that won't just drop it10:54
ikoniaCJKay: that will re-cache after clearning down the current cache10:54
scarleorandomnewb, is that the one giving you trouble or are you trying it as a different method now?10:54
ikoniaCJKay: that won't stop it caching10:54
CJKayI'm not trying to stop it caching, just I like to clean it up a bit when it starts to get laggy10:54
randomnewbscarleo I'm trying it as a different method.10:54
randomnewbIt's in the download phase now.10:55
ikoniaCJKay: why do you think unity has a large memory leak problem ?10:55
zgrubuntu is going to migrate to systemd or it will remain on upstart?10:55
deskduckHello, I plan to install ubuntu, and I currently have 3 windows ntfs hard drives, I want to install ubuntu only on c drive while erasing the entire windows OS, is this possible?10:55
theadminzgr: Upstart currently.10:55
ikoniazgr: follow the uds sessions10:55
theadmindeskduck: Sure, but the drive won't stay as NTFS10:55
randomnewbscarleo, is this kind of problem common?10:55
CJKayikonia: When I restart Unity, `free` says I typically gain upwards of 1.5GB free RAM10:55
CJKayAnd the system speeds up again10:56
ikoniaCJKay: why do you think that's specfically unity,10:56
deskduckI want to keep data on drive d and e intact, but convert the rest of the space into ext4, can that be possible?10:56
scarleorandomnewb, no, I don't know if it is common wityh wubi thing, I think that one is kinda new so wouldn't be surprised if it had a bug or two, but installing from Live should work just fine10:56
CJKayI can't tell if it's specifically Unity, just that it's closely linked to Unity since the same thing happens when I run no applications other than the default ones10:57
CJKaySupposedly nm-applet has quite a large leak10:57
ikoniaCJKay: how are you restarting unity ?10:57
CJKayI usually do unity --replace10:57
ikoniathat's just re-spawning the unity shell10:57
CJKaySo how do you restart it?10:57
deskduckI want to keep data on drive d and e intact, but convert the c drive into ext4, can that be possible?10:58
CJKaydeskduck: No, copy everything to an external drive, format, put it back10:58
scott_freecant get wireless working on hp pavillion zv500010:58
irdxbackup data, convert and restore10:58
deskduck I dont have one10:58
ikoniaCJKay: if you feel it's valid (which based on your comments it is) log a bug, although I have a machine here that's got an uptime of 32days with unity and has solid memory use, no issues10:58
deskduckneither can I afford that is why I am asking10:58
almoxarifedeskduck: drive D is the cd/dvd aint it?10:59
CJKayikonia: Hmm, well this happens with my laptop and my desktop so I may well put in a report10:59
randomnewbdeskduck anymore detail you can give?10:59
CJKayA telltale sign is that when I try to run one of my applications, malloc fails10:59
ikoniaCJKay: if you feel it's valid, get a bug report in, as much detail as possible10:59
randomnewbPartitioning isn't really difficult but it is something you must be very careful with.11:00
deskduckI am planning to install ubuntu 11.10 on c drive which is around 40 GB[ i want it converted to ext4 naturally]  and I have 2 other drives D and E around 120 GB[ my HDD is 160 GB], now I have [precious] data on D and E so what am I saying is can I install ubuntu only on C and keep D and E as mountable ntfs partitions?11:01
scott_freecant get the b43fwcutter towork havnt had this problem bfore11:01
crizzyyes deskduck.11:02
scott_freeis there a prob with b3 on 11.10?11:02
theadmindeskduck: Yes. Reformat one of the drives to ext4, mount to /, done. Don't touch the others11:02
deskduckwow thanks  crizzy11:02
Shiugood day11:02
randomnewbscarleo, my install completed.11:03
scarleorandomnewb, great!11:03
scott_freeworked fine on open suse i wonder if i got a bad install11:03
deskduckand thanks theadmin, trying ubuntu for the first time can I get some opinions on ubuntu [I mean the basic differences between ubuntu and windows]11:03
theadmindeskduck: Too many to list. But first of all, the filesystem in Linux is different. The main drive (where you install to) is the root directory or /. Every other drive is attached to it as a folder, for instance /blah, /bleh, /foo, /bar11:04
scarleoscott_free, did you check Additional Drivers, might need to activate it11:04
theadmindeskduck: That's important to understand, we have no drive letters :P11:04
Shiuanyone got a good grasp of pulseaudio and getting surround working through HDMI? I've got stereo working just fine, and I've been checking the extra-hdmi.conf file for a surround profile that corresponds with my stereo output.. its there in the conf file, just not in the control panel on desktop11:04
randomnewbDo not be afraid of the terminal.11:05
scott_freeya it doesnt come up11:05
scott_freeit said hardware switch on wireless11:05
deskduckalso, theadmin, you mentioned earlier about mount to /, what is this?11:05
scott_freewierd, i read some threads11:05
scarleoscott_free, what is your hardware, NIC?11:05
scott_free Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)11:06
theadmindeskduck: If you use the "Advanced" option when installing you will be able to choose a mount point for each partition (that is, the folder it's accessed on). To tell it to "install to this drive", specify the mount point as /11:06

deskduckwell then how do you modify "source code" and what does it mean the admin?11:10
theadminguest123321: halfop11:11
theadmindeskduck: The program code (internal instructions of how to do this or that, how to make the program work) is usually just a text file which you can open with your favorite editor, so...11:11
theadminictxiangxin: X comes preinstalled in Ubuntu with all the libs, you're not really making sense. Are you using the server version?11:12
deskduckwhat is derivative? I am seeing lubuntu, xubuntu and ubuntu on ubuntu.com, which one should i choose?11:13

theadminHalexander90001: Won't work though, no boot sector this way11:35
theadminHalexander90001: Well, the boot sector is there, but in the wrong place altogether (on the partition rather than MBR) so it won't boot11:36

auronandaceHalexander90001: define "weird" :)11:36

Halexander90001It says error: input/output error.11:38

Halexander90001I'll try again.11:38

geirhaHalexander90001: If the usb drive was mounted while you ran the dd, that would explain the corrupt looking fs11:38

vavoyshtheadmin: awesome. Is it possible to use the default (for 11.04) volume control meter for alsa? I removed pulseaudio for alsa, hoping it would fix some sound problems, but it didn't, so I want to switch back, only I can't figure out how11:39

zacariasif everything freezes and you can't even start terminal to run a "killall" command, what shall you do? Is there a jkeyboard shortcut to force apps to quit or you just have to force the computer to restart?11:39
theadminvavoysh: Oh boy... Not sure really. Never had sound problems no matter what I used so I always just left it be :D11:39
theadminzacarias: Hit Alt-SysRQ-K11:39

ubottuamityadav9314: Ubuntu is a complete Linux-based operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. It is developed by a large community and we invite you to participate too! - Also see http://www.ubuntu.com12:10
amityadav9314Why to use it ?12:10
auronandaceamityadav9314: why not?12:11
amityadav9314auronandace: when we have Fedora?12:11

ubottuamityadav9314: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!12:11

amityadav9314auronandace: Why Gnome 3 does not work in ubuntu 11.04?12:12

amityadav9314auronandace: What if our graphics does not support?12:13
bazhangamityadav9314, did you have an actual support issue with Ubuntu? what version are you using, for example12:14
auronandaceamityadav9314: then you can't use it, i think it reverts to a fallback mode (not ure though since i don't use gnome at all)12:14
ubuntuaddictedamityadav9314, what graphics?12:14
ubuntuaddictedamityadav9314, nvidia or ati chipset?12:15
bazhangamityadav9314, if your card does not support it, then you cannot use some of the features.12:15
amityadav9314auronandace: But i have heard some Software rendering, what is that?12:15

dohertyIs it possible to tell my ssh client which authentication mechanisms to use? I want it to skip attempting kerberos and gssapi-with-mic, which just slow things down.14:26
Dweezahrroasted, it is appletalk or another protocol that gives the dns name or the linux box hasnt configured dns properly14:26
roastedfidel: I'm not running anything in particular. Just verizon DSL - broadband router - etc.14:26
roastedDweezahr: in OSX I'm using smb://HTPC @ connect to server. I'm not sure if that helps answer that or not.14:26
Dweezahrwhere's the @ for?14:27
roastedfidel: but would network manager not populate dns properly? It says my dns server is my router....14:27
fidelroasted: i would run dig on both boxes and compare the output14:27
roastedDweezahr: I meant at the actual "connect to server" I use smb://HTPC14:27
fidelapple boxes tend to use apple-specific network voodoo in some corners14:27
roastedDweezahr: I meant @ as a verbal expression. I didn't actually use it.14:28

Dweezahrand it used to work then?14:29
Dweezahrif not, changes make no difference here14:29
roastedDweezahr: I'm having a hard time remembering... the laptops are mine, and the desktop is a HTPC I set up for my gf. Since then, we both moved in together, so now my laptops and HTPC are now in the same household.14:29
roastedDweezahr: I think I specifically set up workgroups on my file server, but that's not in this equation. HTPC and file server are separate beasts14:30
Dweezahrroasted, I always use ip address, and use 4 different operating systems14:30
styelzmaybe need roasted did you enable wins on samba14:30
roastedDweezahr: well I like using the IP as well, but I used host name not realizing what I was doing and I saw it failed. On a hunch my mac was here so I tried it.14:30
roastedstyelz: how does one do that?14:30
styelzname resolution14:30

Dweezahrroasted, all running windows, yes14:31
Dweezahrrunning windows to osx, probably14:31
Dweezahrlinux to windows, no14:31
roastedDweezahr: I'm not sure. It's a motorola oruter that's about to get thrown out anyway and upgraded. But network manager DOES populate my DNS server as, which is the motorola.14:31
roastedDweezahr: what about linux to linux?14:31
roastedall I use is linux. the mac is only here because it's a work system.14:31
DweezahrThen you have all configuration options for yourself14:31
Dweezahrthe samba configuration then needs to be altered14:32
roastedDweezahr: but what is the default behavior? Same workgroup across all linux machines on LAN = smb://HTPC should work?14:32
azmodeusdoes anybody knows how can I install and change languages on the kubuntu-desktop installed on a xubuntu sys??? =)14:32
Dweezahrroasted, unequal workgroups can cause problems, but avoiding it does not guarantee a proper output14:32
DweezahrI think there is a resolve problem14:33
DweezahrAnd normally names are given by a dns server to be resolved to ip addresses14:33

bazhangcypher-neo, launchpad has a PPA search page14:34
Dweezahrresolv.conf is the local file that is checked before the dns server14:34
Dweezahrso type the name of the computer in it, and the ip address and then the machine itself will translate the name to the ip14:35

Dweezahrwell, dns is not working14:35
Dweezahrcan you configure it on your router?14:35
Dweezahrif not, then that is not enough14:35

roastedDweezahr: do newer routers typically handle this? like Linksys E2000s etc?14:36
Dweezahrroasted, it is the operating system on the router that determines this14:36
roastedDweezahr: so it needs to be flashed? Stock firmware wouldn't do it?14:37
Dweezahrbut also an old router like mine can run dd-wrt a custom rom, and then you have the world of conifguration possibilities14:37
Dweezahrusually, then you use a gateway with a dns14:37
Dweezahrlike here, that is just a normal pc with multiple network interface cards14:37
cypher-neobazhang, Oh... :( I found it. It's under Precise development.14:37
cypher-neobazhang, No package available yet... which means that gimp-svn is broken until April, probably.14:37
roastedDweezahr: I'm just trying to think what the simplest path is for me to get this working... if I'm upgrading routers anyway and I can get one to handle dns stuff, that would work.14:38
roastedDweezahr: thereagain I wonder if proper workgroups would be enough.14:38
propokrGood Morning14:38
kapzALright! I need to upgrade the version of SANE-Genesys for my scanner to work...can someone help me? Thanks14:38
Dweezahrroasted, you can try, but as long as you earn your money faster with working, then I would say just buy a new router instead of 30 hours of programming and searching14:39
Ashii_someone know why fonts act this way? http://ompldr.org/vY3Ftdw14:39
Dweezahrnot fonts, Ashii_, just spaces everywhere14:40
Ashii_Dweezahr: but how do you shrink the spaces?14:40
cypher-neoAshii_, Depending on what font you are using, it could be the design of the font itself.14:40
Ashii_cypher-neo: it looks fine in conky, but looks horrid in term14:41
azmodeusmmm, no answers... :( sob... I cant install other languages....14:41
webbeasthello, I am new to ubuntu as well as to conky, I dont know I modified the following script properly, need assistance http://pastebin.com/m1JLajfg14:41
cypher-neoAshii_, What font is it?14:41
webbeastis the entire script wrong? I downloaded it from conky website.14:42
webbeastand made some modifications.........14:42
Dweezahrwebbeast, you are compiling the source code I assume?14:43
jattno conky is configurable14:44
webbeastI am loading the conky script Dweezahr14:44
roastedappreciate it Dweezahr !14:44
auronandacewebbeast: is that the whole conky.conf file?14:44
cypher-neowebbeast, From the pastebin you sent, it looks like every line in the script is hashbang'ed14:45
Dweezahrroasted, okay, it is fun, but If you want to talk seriously about technical things in your network, give #networking a visit, there you see some complex things14:45
webbeastno, its the .conkyrc file Dweezahr14:45
cypher-neowebbeast, If a line begins with a #, it won't be used when Conky loads that script.14:45

cypher-neowebbeast, Simple? I do know a simple script. Let me find it.14:47
cypher-neowebbeast, It might take me a few minutes. Stay here in chat. :)14:47
ActionParsnipwebbeast: there are samples online14:47
webbeastI am trying that and am getting errors ActionParsnip14:48
webbeastcypher-neo, take your time, I am right here14:48
auronandacewebbeast: trying what exactly?14:48
styelzXATRIX: you can copy one of the fies from /usr/share/zoneinfo/... to /etc/zoneinfo14:48
Dweezahrno, he is still reading my page, it takes a while, and a gui is more useful14:49
cypher-neowebbeast, Conky Wizard is about as simple as you can get! http://code.google.com/p/conkywizard/downloads/list14:49
ActionParsnipwebbeast: find a sample config online and copy it in the ~/.conkyrc file  it will be read and used14:49
XATRIXstyelz: i did it allready :)14:49
XATRIXthe problem is my system still using UTC14:50
cypher-neowebbeast, It's also a great way to learn Conky, but making the Wizard do weird things and see how it affects the script.14:50
ActionParsnipwebbeast: what's good about conky is the file is read in line, so changes apply without restarting the app14:50
XATRIX10 17:50:07 MSK 201214:50

cypher-neowebbeast, Let me point you to the Conky configuration page. There are numerous CPU commands that can be used on Conky that don't require external scripts.14:56
cypher-neowebbeast, Perhaps using a default command will work for you.14:56

SenorWombatAgreed - and lowers CPU usage as well.15:02
Jeihahey. I installed WoW with Wine. I fully updated it, but I can't make it run. If I open it with the wow.exe is lags way too much and I can't do anything. what to do15:02

cypher-neoSenorWombat, Conky bars were something I never designed. I did full desktop-CPU-draining designs, but I had trouble keeping my designs simple.15:04
jacerI just wanted some anecdotal feedback.  The general hold up is video performance, but workstation 8 is supposed to be much closer to the hardware level.15:04

cloudgeekdonavan01: if need to do your home folder then you need to do whole disk encryption16:40
module000_raven: that way when you chroot inside /mnt/my_root, your filesystem is arranged the same way it normally would be16:40
_ravenmodule000, i forgot about boot perhaps that is the problem16:40
donavan01is there a good how to on using truecrypt or soemthing (easier the better) for ubuntu?16:41
module000donavan01: for individual files, or for encrypted an entire block device?16:42
donavan01either ... both ... I basically want to keep my files secure as im going to have a good deal of sensitive docs on this laptop16:43

mcb_ignerious: If you tell the problem.... we can see we can help.16:49
module000donavan01: nono the encryption happens before the OS installs, you enable it during the installatino process16:49
module000donavan01: then when you boot up, youll get a password prompt to unlock the disk at the beginning of the boot procedure16:50
module000donavan01: this means that if someone swipes your laptop or removes the physical disk , it will be useless to them16:50

donavan01module000 so is it basically a function of the partition format?16:52
tsimpsonignerious: add "-lm" to the command16:52
module000donavan01: it's a kernel function, the encryption layer happens transparent to any reads/writes to the disk.16:52

whitelynxi haven't been able to find any info online relating to the download itself getting a 404... only things i've found are where repositories get a 404 when updating, which isn't happening to me16:55

whitelynxand other packages have been installing fine16:55
igneriousgcc -lm Series1 Series1.c16:55
donavan01module000 not what I mean ... let me see if I can explain what Im asking better... initially the disk will be formatted in something like FAT or whatever lunix uses ... then before the OS is coppied to the Disk the installer will encrypt the whole drive making even the empty space look like junk to anyone trying to snoop... once that is done the OS is installed like normal... then each time them computer boots it will ask for16:56
donavan01 a password to access the hard drive so that the OS can boot... does that about sum up whats going on or have I misunderstood what I have read?16:56

javierf_Hi! One question: Is it possible to have /home on a nfts partition? For work reasons, I need to use windows, but I prefer ubuntu on my leasure time. But it would be great to share home partition in both SO. I'm not a purist, so it's not a phylosophical question (I know nfts is not an open source format type), just practical. Thanks!17:21
jaybuttsbubo, it is flash which uses alot of cpu..but you say 'downloading' so I assume you mean you are downloading it and not watching it, what does the iowait look like? sound like it could be a hardware issue, try tunnning down flash and using a mod for your browser that lets you watch flash videos using an external program17:21
mcb_Excell: You can check if the proprety you are changing is not beening changed twice. If it appears in another line of the file, it will have the second velue it get.17:21
auronandacejavierf_: no, you need a linux filesystem for /home because of file permissions17:22

Benkinooby2auronandace, using minitube it only requires 27%17:25

jacerjavier, while there's nothing wrong with that, using ntfs probably isn't the best idea.17:28
Benkinooby2javierf_, the only thing you have to think about is the file system... using FAT32 would be the safest because all OS can work with it17:28
hceylanBıth xchat and xchat-gnome closes when I close the window17:28
javierf_Benkinooby2, but, if I will use windows 7 and ubuntu, nfts should be ok, shouldn't it?17:28
hceylanis there a way to keep it running and use the indicator?17:28
auronandaceBenkinooby2: fat32 has a 4gb max filesize limit, so ntfs is really the only option17:28
Benkinooby2javierf_, i am not sure how safe it is to use ubunto on ntfs17:29
jacerthe linux driver for NTFS is quirky.  You can read it safely, but every write function has the potential to fubar your system.17:29
jaceror at least the ntfs partition.17:29
javierf_auronandace, so, let's say, you have /home partition for some things, like configuration files. But how many Gb should I have there?17:29
BuboHow can I reinstall ubuntu but without losing software and settings ? :\ is it possible? without formatting the drive17:29
javierf_Benkinooby2, what's better in Fat32 than ntfs?17:30
auronandacejavierf_: up to you, i don't use a seperate home partition17:30
Benkinooby2javierf_, that windows and linux can both use it safely17:30
Excellmcb_ nothing there its basiclly the default config file17:30

jaybuttsBubo: do this, it will shutdown your computer and do fsck before shutdown (easier) - fsck will check and repair your disc - run this as root: shutdown -rF  ; echo "I don't know about wubi but I herd of performance problems with that"17:31
Benkinooby2auronandace, afaic ntfs is not safe for linux writing on it17:31
ubottuTo view your Windows/Mac partitions see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AutomaticallyMountPartitions - For write access, see !NTFS-3g or !FUSE17:31
ubottuntfs-3g is a Linux driver which allows read/write access to NTFS partitions. Installation instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MountingWindowsPartitions17:31

ubottuTo install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash - See also  !Restricted and !Gnash19:02
holsteinmeerkats: i would want to see 10.04 personally.. 12.04 is still in 'testing', though it can be helpful when troubleshooting and you want the latest kernel to test with19:02

rumpe1naman, if they "steal" the mails on the mail-server, the only thing you can do is change the password. And it's not ubuntu related. And yes, ubuntu should be much more secure, but if someone has phyiscal access to your pc, you need further measurements.19:02
meerkatsholstein, why 10.04? aint that quite outdated?19:02
namanITs become very challenging to stop the intrusion and no anti software companies offer support.19:03
holsteinmeerkats: its the latest LTS.. long term support.. its still currently supported19:03
