scienceNinjaBobaren't there drivers for mouse and touch-pad that can be reinstalled?00:00
hydrox24scienceNinjaBob: no, the "drivers" are kinda generic/inbuilt00:00
hydrox24scienceNinjaBob: I think....00:00
damo22scienceNinjaBob: i dont see how they are related , what is the actual problem you are experiencing00:00
cfhowlettscienceNinjaBob: there are some drivers for specific make/model = just depends.00:00
waglewhat subsystem in 10.04 mounts disks?  i want to see the scripts, and i'm not finding them00:01
scienceNinjaBobthe problem is when i touch my touchpad or move my mouse my screen flickers a few times and i'm back at the login screen00:01

schurlhydrox24: do i have to do a automount00:03
schurlhydrox24:?00:03
damo22scienceNinjaBob: im not sure if this is the solution00:03
schurlhydrox24: or is it automaticaly mounted?00:03
urlin2uwagle, that makes it read and write backup the one that works before you do anything00:03
damo22scienceNinjaBob: do you want to know what they did00:03
hydrox24schurl: I dunno, is this like an external drive, because my USB drives auto-mount when hot-plugged (pugged in while the laptop is running)00:03
scienceNinjaBobyes sure anything that mite help00:03

damo22scienceNinjaBob: sudo su00:04
hydrox24schurl: OK, and you know anything about how it's formateed (windows/NTFS or mac/HFS+)???00:05
nemoSooo, why is it that after I installed chrome, merely for testing purposes, links from update manager open in it?00:05
schurlhydrox24: its ntfs00:05
nemoI most definitely did not set it as my default browser00:05
scienceNinjaBobyeah i'm root now00:05
damo22echo "blacklist vga16fb" > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-vga16fb.conf00:05
damo22scienceNinjaBob: ^^00:05
Gentoo64nemo, because the update manager knows chrome loads faster00:06
nemo...00:06
nemoGentoo64: complete nonsense00:06
nemowhatever00:06
nemoI presume stupid package sets a higher weight00:06
urlin2uGentoo64, not even close to helpful.00:06
nemooh well00:06
nemoI'll figure it out myself00:06
waglei meant external disk00:06
scienceNinjaBobthat's it? let me try to use the touch pad.00:06
damo22no00:06
hydrox24schurl: ahh, well... I wanna go have my morning coffee now, can I come back in 10-20 mins. alterntively, look up (google) "mount ntfs fstab ubuntu 11.10"00:06
damo22scienceNinjaBob: then do this:   update-initramfs -u00:06
urlin2unemo, you can set the deault browser.00:07
schurlhydrox24: good morning, its 1 in the morning here in vienna :)00:07
nemourlin2u: tried that in firefox. said it already was default.  So I assume it got set somewhere else00:07
scienceNinjaBobk he's doing something00:07
Wargasmnemo: or you can just get rid of chrome :)00:07
schurlhydrox24: enjoy and thx00:07
nemoWargasm: yeah, that's probably a good idea, although occasionally I do need to try and figure out why it is screwing up a site layout00:07
Gentoo64nemo, try in the system settings menu00:07
Gentoo64nemo, there should be some default browser setting there somewhere00:08
wunnlehey, i'm trying to pair my bluetooth device with my ubuntu. I'm following a guide, which told me to run "hcitool scan".  I did, but i get this error > "Device is not available: No such device". What's the problem?00:08

scienceNinjaBobupdated initramfs00:08

ubottuanother contentless ping... sigh...00:08
scienceNinjaBobok00:08
scienceNinjaBobbrb00:08
stx1wow did not get pinged... I miss the scripts00:08
nemohm. changing it from "Debian sensible browser" to Firefox in prefered apps appears to have fixed...00:08
nemoI guess "Debian sensible" is one that gets overridden by whatever package has a higher weight... or something like that.00:09
nemoanyway. all better. Thanks for the genuinely useful suggestion in the end, Gentoo64 :)00:09
nemol8r00:09
urlin2unemo, no not really go to Settings->System Info->Default Applications tp pick the default you want00:09

Canadian1296What is the best firewall to use on Ubuntu 11.10? I want to allow all connections from the machine to the net, but only ssh from the net to the machine. It should drop all other requests and let them time out, not say they were denied. uwf is already installed, so if it will work, how do I use it.01:57
cfhowlett!firewall|canadian129601:57
ubottucanadian1296: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Gufw (GNOME) and Guarddog (KDE Lucid and Maverick) also exist.01:57

BlogaiGerasOK, my hash code is b11301dc298d4b16850cee2a421e3567, shouldnt it be 62fb5d750c30a27a26d01c5f3d8df459 for my ubuntu 11.10 64 bit desktop?02:49
jetoledingdangdong: is there a proxy option in preferences or under any of the menus or dialoges they return?02:49
cfhowlettBlogaiGeras: check that against the 11.10 md5sum02:49
dingdangdongjetole: the thing is they actually have removed the menu it used to have :O02:49

BlogaiGerashttp://releases.ubuntu.com/11.10/MD5SUMS here?02:50
BlogaiGerasIt's different from mine? Or am I doing something wrong?02:50
jerichowasahoaxI recently changed my Apache2 <VirtualHost> tag to read my.domain.here:80 instead of *:80. Now whenever Apache2 reads the config I get this warning: [Fri Feb 10 21:47:55 2012] [warn] NameVirtualHost *:80 has no VirtualHosts02:50
cfhowlettBlogaiGeras: no you're at teh right place02:50
jerichowasahoaxThe webserver still *works* but I'd like to figure out where this is in the default configs so I don't have to look at it :-)02:50
jetoledingdangdong: Don't know what to say. I don't use gyachi. Maybe try reading the docs (especially since I doubt they've removed that feature) and if that doesn't help then see if anyone else has a answer02:51
jerichowasahoaxand by "figure out" I mean "ask other people while putting minimal effort into finding it", heh02:51

Halexander9000Does anyone have some advice on how to Optimize Ubuntu for an ASUS EEE PC 904HD?02:51
cfhowlettBlogaiGeras: you mean download the iso again?  only if it doesn't match up correctly...02:51
urlin2ujerichowasahoax, the channel guidelines specifically ask you not to due that. :)02:52
urlin2udo*02:52
BlogaiGerasWell maybe i'm misunderstanding something, but the hash in the file is not the same as my hash i pasted here?02:52
jetoleBlogaiGeras: sounds like you didn't get the whole/complete download02:52
Squarismo it does exist02:52
BlogaiGerasAlright, I'll redownload it then.02:52
BlogaiGerasThanks.02:52
dingdangdongjetole: no idea, couldn't find anything . not yet :-/ , thx anyway :)02:52
BlogaiGerasFor the quick help.02:53
BlogaiGeras;)02:53
BlogaiGerasAnd try then.02:53
cfhowlettBlogaiGeras: might have been incomplete or scrambled .  it happens.  and toda you learned something.02:53
shellcodecallmed: what u mean02:53
jetoleBlogaiGeras: assuming you're pasting the correct hash and referring to the proper hash for the correct file then it appears your download is corrupt02:53
jetoledingdangdong: np02:53
BlogaiGerasThat's rather strange, I never realised that something can get corrupt and be burned flawlessly without any errors?02:53

urlin2uthe*02:54
jetoleBlogaiGeras: it can but I'm betting it flawlessly burned the incorrect ISO to begin with but both are possible02:54
jetolediuneigh: yes but it's not something I would say is easy for someone who has never used it02:54
cfhowlettBlogaiGeras: as jetole said.  Old computer phrase: "garbage in, garbage out"02:54
jerichowasahoaxurlin2u: Does it? I can't find it02:55
BlogaiGeras;D Alright.02:55
diuneigh•jetole• ok.. the live USB is almost done..02:55
cfhowlettBlogaiGeras: good luck02:55
BlogaiGerasThanks, guys.02:55

diuneigh•jetole• live USB is done.. rebooting now..02:58
BlogaiGerasThe new hash matches, I'm burning the CD.03:00
jetoleback03:00
jetoleBlogaiGeras: when done, run another hash check on the CD03:00
cfhowlettBlogaiGeras: great!  to be supersure, you need to check teh burn as well03:00
BlogaiGerasOh, OK, thanks, good idea.03:01
dlentzpeople still burn CD's?03:01
jetoleBlogaiGeras: if the hash check on the CD fails then burn again, if it fails yet again then look into replacing your cdrom03:01
cfhowlettBlogaiGeras: you should be burning the cd at slow speed to reduce errors03:01
BlogaiGerasobviously you don't want to reserve a usb stick for having an ubuntu bootable cd...03:01
jetoleBlogaiGeras: A CD should always have the same hash as the ISO which created it03:01
BlogaiGerasAlright, thanks I'll check it03:02
urlin2ujerichowasahoax, kind of hard to find but here it is see Do some research before asking a question http://www.sabi.co.uk/Notes/linuxHelpAsk.html03:02
jetoleBlogaiGeras: why not? usb sticks are cheap these days anyways and you can still use them for storage03:02
diuneighjetole: I am using the live USB now... I couldn't use your command.. the aptitude package is not installed on the live USB..using the web freenode.net03:02
BlogaiGerasI wouldn't say it's much of a storage if it's already a bootable...03:02
jetoleBlogaiGeras: the bootable usb creation program formats the stick as vfat by default making it usable in just about any OS as a normal USB stick as long as you don't remove or corrupt the ubuntu files it installs03:03
urlin2ujerichowasahoax, or lol don't admit you haven't. :)03:03
Squarismg++ is a c++ compiler right?03:04

diuneighjetole:  should I try it again?03:04
BlogaiGerasWell true, but it's a mess inside the stick, I assume?'03:04
* jetole has the bad habbit of using apt-get still even though aptitude is safer03:04
jetoleBlogaiGeras: not that bad. Some files. Some folders. I'd just create a new folder for storing everything else I need03:05

Squarismdoes anyone know if its bad to upgrade the g++ compiler on 11.10?03:06
jayhawk08Squarism: yes, you can compile c++ with gcc, but if you like with the standard libraries libraries you want to use g++03:06
jetolediuneigh: stop!03:06
cfhowlettSquarism: don't see why it would be "bad"...?03:06
jetolediuneigh: and say when03:06
diuneighjetole: but I be in root?03:07
jetolediuneigh: do you have a root terminal up right now?03:07
Squarismcfhowlett, i thought it might be part of the "system files" so to speak... dependent on other stuff in the os03:07
diuneighjetole: no.. can I do a sudo -s at the command line?03:07
diuneighjetole: how to do a root terminal?03:07
jetoleI forget what -s does. You can do sudo -i03:07
jayhawk08Squarism: g++ only gets used when you're compiling programs, so if you don't do that it shouldn't matter03:08
jetole@ diuneigh03:08
cfhowlettSquarism: regular update should address all dependencies and what not.  I'd say you're safe - but what do I know?03:08

jetolediuneigh: I don't see a partition that would be /home on this list. sda and sdc look like windows partition and sdb shows a 2 normal linux partitions and 1 swap partition where one of the linux partitions and the swap parition are extended partitions on sdb. If I read that correctly, where is your /home partition?03:22

AfdalHello all05:02
jetolemeh.05:03
AfdalI'm installing Xubuntu on a hardware RAID0 partition alongside Windows XP05:03
AfdalAnd in order to make sure it uses the exact partition and size I specify, i'm doing the custom installation05:03
jetoleAfdal: what's your question?05:04
AfdalCan anyone explain to me what is meant by the various options for partition mount points?05:04
AfdalThere's / and /boot and others05:04
AfdalWhich one do I choose, and why?05:04
diuneighJetole: np.05:04
bruenigsup mofuckas05:05
AfdalWhat I want to do is setup grub but NOT on the MBR05:05
AfdalAnd then choose from Windows or GRUB from Window's boot.ini05:05
jetoleAfdal: unlike windows each partition doesn't have a drive letter but instead they are all a directory under / for example I can make a partition mount to /var and another partition mount to /usr/local and another one mount to /dir1/dir2/dir3/dir4 but for the most part you should be ok with one single partition mounted to /05:05
FrijolensteinAre you tired of niggers?05:06
FrijolensteinI am!05:06
AfdalSo it doesn't matter at all?05:06
FrijolensteinThat is why I joined Chimpout Forum!05:06
jetoleAfdal: then you will have to set your current boot loader to chain link to the partition grub is installed on05:06
AfdalThey're just arbitrary names?05:06
AfdalYeah I'm fine with that part05:06
jetoleAfdal: you need a / partition for sure and beyond that there are best practices for other partitions but on a typical desktop you don't have to worry about more then /05:07
AfdalAll right, I'll use / for the Mount point then05:07
AfdalThanks05:07
samlockokay, is there a way i can convert the GPT to MBR?05:07
jetoleAfdal: you may be warned about not having a swap partition which is good best practice to have but for your first install you can ignore that warning05:07
AfdalI made the swap partition too05:07
* jetole goes back to reading docs regarding the problem of diuneigh 05:07
AfdalNow how can I make sure Grub doesn't get put on the MBR?05:08
samlockthis is my exact problem: http://superuser.com/questions/352546/thinkpad-x121e-bios-uefi-legacy-ubuntu-installation-doent-start05:08
AfdalIs it just a matter of selecting the Linux boot partition and NOT the whole drive?05:08
jetoleAfdal: it will ask you05:08
jetoleAfdal: yes05:09
Afdalokay, thanks05:09
AfdalLet's see if this works this time...05:09
jetoleAfdal: it should all work fine but if something gets fucked up, boot off your windows disk into the console and run: fdisk /mbr05:10
jetoleAfdal: and that will fix your mbr05:10
AfdalYeah I already had to do that one :(05:10
* jetole goes back diuneigh's problem 05:10
Afdalonce05:10
jetoleAfdal: then you know what to do if you **** it up again05:10
AfdalI just ran into an error actually05:11

diuneighJetole: lots to upgrade... computer has been down for a while..05:43
escottbb05, you want a web filter?05:43
jetolebb05: there isn't a best way to filter bad searches as far as I know but you can filter people to accessing bad sites by using a transparent proxy (see squid) and one of the modules / add-ins that helps block content you don't want users accessing05:43
jetolediuneigh: just out of curiousity do you see anything on that list relating to crypt05:43
jetole?05:44
bb05well.. essentially looking to limit the users themselves (with a single login) and keep them from breaking it.05:44
diuneighJetole: not yet... got one error though.. Can not write log, openpty() failed (/dev/pts not mounted?)05:44
escottbb05, you mean you have guest users and you want to prevent privilege escalation?05:44
jetolediuneigh: actually I have a better question I should have asked hours ago. Do you care if you lose anything on your encrypted home dir?05:44
diuneighJetole: done..05:44
bb05escott: yes & combined with squid05:45
diuneighJetole: yes...I do.... otherwise I would have just reinstalled ubuntu..05:45
jetolediuneigh: k05:45
=== aaron is now known as Guest27971
CidGuess nobody knows what I'm asking05:46
escottbb05, well the squid proxy should be placed at the router and any http traffic should be directed through squid. so thats fairly easy. the privilege escalation is harder to deal with. you want to be careful to limit them to only those programs that are appropriate. beyond that its a good idea to see if you can get the hardware to boot off the lan. that way you can consider the physical terminal compromised, and know that a reboot will fi05:46
escottx it05:46
bb05escott: thanks for the info, off 2 google =)05:48
jetolediuneigh: everything I am reading keeps saying you needed that string that was given to you when you setup your home dir which you told me you didn't write down05:48
jetolediuneigh: you may be fucked at this point05:48
diuneighJetole: I have it... I got it from unwrapping the passphrase..05:48
jetolediuneigh: come again?05:48
quiescensi have gotten lost from trying to understand why your conversation seems so complicated05:49
jetolequiescens: talking to me?05:49
escottbb05, the thing to keep in the back of your mind is that "physical access is root access" so buy some locks for the case, and password protect the bios.05:50
diuneighJetole: I didn't write down the passphrase when I installed ubuntu... however, I read that I could find it by enter ecryptfs-unwrap-passphrase /home/username/.ecryptfs/wrapped-passphrase05:50
quiescensi thought it started with trying to access an encrypted home, and then seems to have ended up changing name servers to install updates so i forget what the problem was05:50
jetolediuneigh: so you now know your passphrase?05:50
diuneighJetole: yes at least the one I got from unwrapping it..05:50
jetolequiescens: the ubuntu wiki page for this mentions making sure you have the latest version of the software and diuneigh is booting off of a live usb which I walked him through doing a chroot to his computers drives05:51
jetolequiescens: answer all your questions?05:51
bb05as we are currently setup, there will always be a way for 'live' booting, but we monitor them while in the room this is more of a fail-safe if we miss something.05:51

diuneighJetole:  I thank you for your time..05:53

diuneighJetole: haha.. ok.. so basically don't reboot the computer then?05:58
merniliohi all! :-)05:58
escottKyle123, at 12 we all knew how to get around blackice on windows. you hit f1. clicked around until the first hyperlink you could see and voila you had IE. you are either concerned that this will happen or you aren't. bb05 asked so he is presumably concerned -- besides a live usb seems much more likely than a privilige escalation from a non-priviledged user05:58
Oregon`hi. I was given a 40 gig external harddrive today.  I want to format it...opened gparted, and see two partitions...one is ntfs, and the other is only 7.84Mgs, unallocated.   Should I format both partitions, or should I leave the unallocated partion? THANKS05:59
Kyle123escott from people who don't know much about compuers05:59
jetolediuneigh: I did that on the spot but the methodology is basically this, mount your root partition to a mount point, mount any other partitions to the proper sub dir of where you mounted your root parition (don't worry about swap) and then do a mount --bind (which just mounts an existing directory to another directory) to the proper points under where you mounted your root paritition and then root "chroot DIR /bin/bash" where DIR is where you mounted ...05:59

urlin2ujetole, ;)06:13

cryptodirajetole, now that you have had your fun.... do you have a solution to the problem with upgrading?06:13

jetolecryptodira: nope. sorry06:14
jetolecryptodira: someone else might though06:14
pangolinjetole: I'm only going to ask nice, next time I need to guess I will assume the worst and ban you. :)06:14
escottsindile, if you have two monitors with different sizes its possible that the window manager is confused about the geometry on the secondary because it is basing it off the primary06:14
Oregon`urlin2u:  and jetole: okay thanks. So I just deleted the ntfs and now its letting me create a new one looks good.  I create is at a "Primary Partiton" right? Sorry for such newb questions I just dont want to screw it up.06:14
jetolepangolin: sorry. Just trying to have a sense of humor is all06:15
jetolepangolin: so I can't even swear if I censor it?06:15
diuneighJetole: I can see files in my home dir.. but they all say they are encrypted.. is that progress or not?06:15
jetolepangolin: and if that's the case, isn't that a bit much?06:15
pangolinjetole: humour is all well and good but it is not helpful. stick to support in here and you are welcome to join #ubuntu-offtopic for fun.06:15
Oregon`urlin2u:  Also should I create a label for the drive? or just leave it blank?06:15
escottdiuneigh, no06:15
jonathonIs it possible to permanantly Decrypt my home folder?06:15
pangolinjetole: correct, no swearing.06:15
Oregon`jonathon: yes. I like the program encfs for that06:15
akpkHow to clear DNS cache ???06:16
jetolepangolin: by the way, not that this should matter but I've spent the last many hours here working on fixing diuneigh problem and it seems much to get kickbanned for censoring my swearing06:16
urlin2uOregon`, what do you want to do with the drive and do you want a windows OS to access it?06:16
jonathonOregon' Alright, thanks06:16
* jetole sighs 06:16
sindileescott: the two monitors are different sizes, but this happens with certain applications - for example libreoffice, firefox displays fine06:16
jetolepangolin: ok06:16
Ho^OhHow can I know if my server is capable of HARDWARE RAID0 ?06:16
Oregon`urlin2u: I need to use it for multiple computers...linux and windows...I constantly have to back up files for people.06:16
escottsindile, does libreoffice have windows on both screens when this is happening?06:16
pangolinjetole: #ubuntu doesn't have a karma system, you don't get extra points for good work that you can spend on breaking rules.06:16
urlin2uOregon`, then make another NTFS]06:16
jetolediuneigh: I honestly don't know and I'm pretty much too tired to look into it now but maybe check some docs06:16
jetolepangolin: well that explains why I said "not that it should matter"06:17
escottsindile, sounds like a bug in the libreoffice toolkit. you might try reporting it06:17
Oregon`k thanks06:17
urlin2uOregon`, no problem .06:17
jetolepangolin: #ubuntu also doesn't seem to have a "social rationalization" system either but I don't want to get ban'd so I'll try my best to bite my tounge06:18

sindileescott: libreoffice has no problem on the secondary monitor06:18
cryptodirapretty busy in here, so i will try again: 10.10 amd/64... trying to auto upgrade to 11.04... update manager says it is available but fails with: "could not download release notes"   how can this be fixed so that the upgrade will proceed?06:18
diuneighJetole: np..06:18
pangolinjetole: I appreciate your understanding06:18
Ho^OhROFL @ pangolin.06:19
urlin2ucryptodira, you completely updated?06:19
jetolediuneigh: I hope you get it set up but seriously, week from hell at work, I've had a few drinks and it's been a long day at the office and I'm about at my ends with this issue and while I know encryption, I don't use encrypted /home dirs06:19
jetolepangolin: btw, is hell a sensitive word?06:19
jetolepangolin: like I just said "week from hell at the office". Is that ok?06:20
pangolinjetole: :) see /msg ubottu !guidelines06:20

jonathonOregon', Might you know the command I need to Decrypt?06:20
escottsindile, misread though you were saying libre was buggy. in any case its a toolkit issue with the toolkit that application is using06:21
urlin2ucryptodira, not sure then.06:21
mesodermHey -- how do I make it where a particular user isn't listed as an option in the graphical login screen?06:22
mesodermi.e. I have two user accounts on my system, and only want one to be visible through gdm06:22
cryptodiraurlin2u, i have been getting a failure to d/l the "list of changes" for the incremental updates... tho they will actually d/l and install.... the big update from 10.10 to 11.04 fails.06:22
jetolemesoderm: userdel06:23
jetolemesoderm: deluser06:23
jetolemesoderm: either or06:23
mesodermjetole, I don't want to remove the user. I just don't want the account to appear as an option on the login screen.06:23
kraz3dCan anyone run me through setting up sftp and opening port 22?06:24
kraz3dI already set myself as DMZ06:24
urlin2ucryptodira, personally I never upgrade distros, I have everything on external HD's so I fresh install faster and cleaner06:24
jetolemesoderm: there used to be a way in the GUI. Now there is still a way but not sure anymore how. I'm using 10.04 and I click "start" -> system -> administration -> login system : and I don't see the option there anymore06:25
urlin2ucomputer only has OS's06:25
escottmesoderm, gdm or lightdm?06:25
jetolemesoderm: ubuntu has become surprisingly complex in its attempts to become simple06:25
mesodermAnyone here know what Canonical was thinking when they removed the ability to do pretty much everything through the System Settings dialog?06:25
jetolecryptodira: oh I have done the upgrade on some server systems which works well and the same process applies to desktops06:26
jetolecryptodira: let me see if I can find the url06:26
cryptodiraurlin2u, that is a handy way to do it for sure, however, i live off-grid and have no snail mail service, so instead of waiting until summer and getting a live cd, i thought i would try the upgrade route... bummer it is failing.06:26
mesodermescott -- Sorry lightdm -- I just looked that up, and realized that's what 11.10 uses by default. My bad.06:27
BoomBoxjetole: the developers think that whatever they think is easy to use for them is easy to use for normal people06:27
BoomBoxwhich just isnt the cas06:27
jetolecryptodira: which version of ubuntu are you using06:27
BoomBoxcase*06:27
jetoleBoomBox: can you please say that again in english?06:27
escottmesoderm, so don't bother with the config files in /etc/lightdm as lightdm ignores its own config files06:27

rodhash_Hello guys, I'm facing little trouble with audio (Ubuntu 11.10)...06:28
rodhash_mplayer runs fine but the sound suddenly stops, why is this happening?06:28
jetolecryptodira: I know the versions say something different then what you have but try this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LucidUpgrades#Network_Upgrade_for_Ubuntu_Servers_.28Recommended.2906:28
rodhash_Anyone, any idea?06:29
jetoleBoomBox: check out IRC netiquette where it mentions saying a users name when you address them in a channel so that the comment is hilighted and more easily visible06:29
cryptodirajetole, Thanks!   i will give that a try.06:29
sindileescott: i think you are right - my primary maximum monitor resolution is 1366x768 (16:9) and secondary is 1920x1080 (16:9), if i change the secondary to 1280x720 there is no problem and any resolution higher than that the problem occurs06:30
Ho^Ohmesoderm: Actually, edit /etc/lightdm/users.conf                        sudo /etc/lightdm/users.conf06:30
Ho^Ohmesoderm: Then follow the guide in the forum.06:30
jetolerodhash_: try with different audio output. You can see a list of it by running: mplayer -ao help06:30
jetolecryptodira: hope it helps06:30
kraz3dIs there any FTP server clients with a decent GUI so I don't have to use sftp?06:32
rodhash_jetole, Here it's... there's something very odd, I'm using Skype and just started to watch a video on youtube, when it started.... the youtube player runs fine, mplayer runs fine too.... but the sound stops after just few seconds...06:32
jetoleoh so I was gonna read the guidelines url that pangolin referred me to a bot which just listed the url but then I got distracted helping people. I'll read it now06:32
escottHo^Oh, those don't work i tried it with 11.10a2 reported a bug and they added the helpful comment at the top # NOTE: If you have AccountsService installed on your system, then LightDM will # use this instead and these settings will be ignored06:32
jetolerodhash_: did you try what I said?06:32
jetolerodhash_: try running mplayer -ao alsa06:32
rodhash_jetole, Yes I tried, but my point is: it was working fine for a long time...06:33
Ho^OhBoomBox: Actually, the new changes here is nice, surrounding Unity. I'm able to work with less distractions now.06:33
jetolerodhash_: if -ao alsa works then edit (or create) ~/.mplayer/config and add the line "ao=alsa"06:33
jetolerodhash_: that way you don't need to add it on each line06:33
cryptodirajetole, that link was no different than what i have already been doing...after clicking to upgrade, we get no further instructions because the system is NOT downloading the release notes.... it hangs at that error.06:34
jetolerodhash_: I don't care. *********** in the USA was working fine for a long time till some smart people got together and decided it was a bad idea and had it abolished... ok that was actually a really poor way to make my point and probably pretty insulting to some people so I am going to censor that but my point being is that I care about the here and now and not the yesterday and the day before06:35
jetolecryptodira: if you had to click to upgrade then you didn't follow the directions on the link I gave you06:35

rodhash_yes... it can be, there was a recent upgrade06:37
bazhangsinux, ask your question to the channel please06:37
jetolerodhash_: so try: mplayer -ao alsa06:38

escottsinux, have you tried just swapping an http or https in for the rtmp06:46
sinuxescott, nope06:46
jetolerodhash_: the answer is yes and I don't know how. sorry but I know it can be done06:46
escottsinux, its serving out of port 80 its worth a try06:47

rodhash_Anyone, any idea?? How to roll back an upgrade ??06:47
pcalguien que sepa español e ingles06:47

ubottupc: En la mayoría de canales de Ubuntu se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español o charlar entra en el canal #ubuntu-es. Escribe "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y dale a enter.06:47
jetolerodhash_: but... probably not worth it anyhow, a lot of other programs rely on that certain programs which they depend on is at least version X.Y and it may lead to future upgrade problems. Best probably just to edit the mplayer config file06:47
bazhangrodhash_, why would you think of trying that? whats the issue06:48
mac_osxHi all, anyone offer a little / LOT of advice? Serious problem.06:48
Ho^Ohrodhash_: Ubuntu isn't Windows, you don't downgrade generally, but if you feel like working hard, there is a way. It depends on how exactly you upgraded in the first place.06:48

AfdalHey all06:59
xgt001bazhang, so right now there are no ppa's to i guess? coz the unity-staging ppa wont work in oneiric06:59
omacmac_osx, there is a special way of adding a boot device in the bios.  look for it and you will have  menu that shows that you have a DVD/CD drive.  The proof is that when you boot, the BIOS detects and displays the kinds of devices i.e. (name of DVD/CD device) that you have.06:59
mac_osxdamo, it's a Dell06:59
AfdalDoes anyone know the mount point name for a floppy in ubuntu?06:59
damo2222Afdal: /dev/fd007:00
bazhangxgt001, I dont directly know of one, just pointing that out07:00
jetoleHo^Oh: if your a room admin then run /last Frijolenstein and then kick ban the user07:00
omacmac_osx: once you add the device to the boot list, then you can change the boot order to the cd/DVD device first, before the hard drive.07:00
AfdalI'm trying to make a grub booter from a floppy and it keeps telling me /media/floppy does not exist07:00
jetoleHo^Oh: he wasn't referring to engineers as I initially thought07:00
bazhangjetole, he's long gone07:00
Ho^OhThanks to bazhang :D07:00
jetolebazhang: I know but just wanted to make sure he stays gone. Thanks07:00
Afdaldamo2222: So it should be "mount /dev/fd0 /media/floppy" right?07:00
mac_osxomac, can you tell me why I have another user and can't access the CD drive anymore? Is it the hack?07:01
damo2222Afdal: actually you probably need something like /dev/fd0u144007:01
Afdal"mount: mount point /media/floppy does not exist"07:01
IgramulAfdal, You'll need the dirctory /media/floppy as mount point.07:01
cfhowlettmac_osx: I JUST received my replacement dvd drive today.  Here's what to do: boot and go into the bios.  From there run diagnostics.  If you get an error on your dvd test self-test 0147, remove and reseat the drive.  test again.  If it fails again, replace the drive.  or so the web informs me.07:01
mac_osxomac, I'll do as you say. Thanks07:01
IgramulAfdal, "sudo mkdir /media/floppy"07:01
escottmac_osx, sounds like you messed up your groups. what groups are you a member of? did you perhaps run usermod -G without -a?07:01
AfdalYou have to make the directory before you mount it?07:01
Ho^OhAfdal: mount /media/fd007:01
Ho^OhAnd yes you have to if you want it to be at a specific directory07:02
Ho^OhOtherwise, do nto use the second parameter.07:02
mac_osxescott, I don't think so, but I pissed off someone who is a hacker07:02

omaccreate a directory:  /mnt/floppy....mkdir -p /mnt/floppy07:05
escottAfdal, don't think you can just copy grub stages to a floppy and expect it to be bootable. are you following instructions from somewhere?07:05
Ho^OhYou have to be doing something extremely weird to be hackable.07:05
AfdalYeah, I think this guide might be outdated, for GRUB 107:05
TheAncientGoatHo^Oh: Most routers are uselessly insecure07:05
TheAncientGoatdefault passwords etc07:05
omacAfdal:  then do a mount:   mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy07:05
omacthat should do the trick.07:06
Ho^OhOr if a person has physical "In person"  access to your computer.07:06
Afdalyeah I got it mounted omac07:06
AfdalI can't seem to figure out out to actually get the bootloader onto the floppy now07:06
TheAncientGoatYeah, then you pretty much can't do anything other than encrypt your hd, but then you have to look at keyloggers etc07:06
Ho^OhTheAncientGoat: But darn, people should've been set those up (Good point though, so many passwordless routers in my neighborhood. xD)07:06
AfdalI'm following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto/BootFloppy, but I think that might not apply for GRUB207:06

jetolepangolin: so I finially finished reading https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines. When you say not to use asterisks to censor myself, are you referring to off-topic or was it the context I used it in where you felt that I might be harassing or inciting harassment because I got the impression from that I shouldn't swear at all even if I am censoring myself in doing so and making sure that my obscenity isn't seen by anyone but I didn't see any mention of ...07:09
jetole... this on the page https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines that lead me to believe I shouldn't do so. I saw that I shouldn't obfuscate obscene words but self censoring is very different from obfuscation where it can be said to be obfuscation if I use a swear word but I replace a letter with a similar number or if I use some local slang to say a swear word but spell it in a manner that is not the normal spelling but censoring myself seems rather ...07:09
escottAfdal, where is your kernel going to reside?07:09
urlin2udiuneigh, you get in with your saved key?07:09
jetole... different and it's something I even see common TV stations with shows rated for all audiences doing so long story short, I'm not sure which part of the guidelines I was in violation of and I want to make sure I know so I don't do it again and wind up getting kicked out of the room07:09

Ho^Ohomac: Raid setup messed Afdal apparently.07:11
diuneighJetole: just kept playing around with it....07:11
AfdalI'm having a lot of trouble getting grub to install on that07:11
escottAfdal, you may find more expertise in #grub, but i would think that you would want some variant of grub-install --allow-floppy --boot-directory=/media/floppy /dev/fd007:11
omacthen...copy files to your floppy directories.07:11
jetolediuneigh: will read now but what did you do?07:11
AfdalSo for now I'm just trying to get grub up somewhere so I can actually boot07:11
omaccp stage1 stage2 /media/floppy/boot/grub07:11
AfdalI'm tired of tinkering around on a Live OS07:11
bazhangAndrewMac_, no idea what you installed? what about pavucontrol to configure it07:11
diuneighJetole: that website worked for me...  now I will mount my other drive and copy the files..07:12
AndrewMac_bazhang: not at this stage, it was a while back and i just restarted the pc :/07:12
diuneighJetole:  you got me in the right direction.07:12
AndrewMac_(so something that takes effect only after a restart)07:12
urlin2uAfdal, you tried supergrub or reloading the grub bootloader to the mbr07:12
bazhangAndrewMac_, first off, before you install or remove anything is check in alsamixer and see that nothing is muted07:12
escottomac, those files won't exist if Afdal is using grub2 (which is the case if he has a new ubuntu install)07:13
AndrewMac_pavucontrol gives me connection failed07:13
jetolediuneigh: yeah I just read that. It's pretty informative while brief but I didn't see that on the ubuntu wiki page I was reading earlier and it probably should be07:13
AndrewMac_alsamixer gives me "cannot open mixer: No such file or directory"07:13
omacthen afdal shouldn't be following that recipe then.07:13
diuneighJetole: I typed sudo ecryptfs-recover-private and followed the prompt.. entered my login password and it worked..07:13
jetolediuneigh: my advice still stands. Unless you live with the gestapo or live in china or plan on hacking the cia/fbi/dod/etc then, if I were you, I would remove the enctypted /home dir07:13
AfdalYeah I'm on Xubuntu 11.1007:14

xharx__is there a way to avoid tearing in ubuntu ? http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tearing07:16
omacgrub-install /dev/fd007:16
escottAfdal, you are going to have a hard time getting grub to boot off a floppy. grub2 base module set is 4.3MB. use something like the iso and a cd or usb07:17
urlin2uAfdal, it boots a OS that is broken, small download worth a try. YOU can also reload the grub bootloader to the mbr, we also have a script you can run that will tell what is where in the OS07:17
AfdalI don't want grub on the MBR though07:17

AfdalBecause I'm doing a dual linux windows boot07:17
Afdaland I want to be able to select GRUB at Window's boot.ini07:17
urlin2uAfdal, you can't boot windows then, you can use esaybcd to boot ubuntu from the windows boot.07:18
urlin2uAfdal, use easybcd07:18
AndrewMac_bazhang: here is the output of alsa-info.sh -> http://pastebin.com/AzqtRAr107:19

urlin2uAfdal, it is a app that willboot other OS's from the windows boot menu.  http://neosmart.net/EasyBCD/07:20
omacafdal: yes.07:20
urlin2uAfdal, to be honest the floppy is a waste of time easybcd will do what you want.07:20

AfdalAnd to do that I'm following this guide, which says I apparently first need to get into my linux natively07:22
JiggyBlkMnI fucking hate niggers!07:23
escottAfdal, determine what version of fakeraid you have and do some googling. but you will have issues if you are stripping because the bootloader needs to understand the raid well enough to reconstruct the kernel and initrd, and the kernel needs to have the dmraid drivers in the initrd so it can find the root fs07:23

escottdiuneigh, no07:30
Ben64diuneigh: not for cp, other programs it does matter, i suggest you look at the manual pages for more information. like this "man cp"07:31
diuneighescott: can I copy read only files?  I ask because I tried and it said cp cannot open07:31
AfdalTried "grub-mkrescue --overlay=/boot/grub --image-type=floppy --output=GRUB2.img" too07:31
AfdalWhat else do I need here?07:31
diuneighBen64 and escott: ok.. thanks.07:31
escottdiuneigh, you can only copy files that you can access07:31
Ben64diuneigh: if you don't have permission to read you cannot copy07:31
escottAfdal, grub-mkrescue is not something im familiar with, that looks like a valid command based on a cursory glance at the man page. i would suggest that what you are trying to do is probably not necessary07:32
diuneighescott: if I can see them does that mean I can access them?  the encryption program put them in a temp dir as read only.07:33
Afdal:(07:33
escottAfdal, assuming you are in a livecd almost any grub issue can be fixed via chroot. and if that can't fix it then it might just be that this dmraid setup is not bootable07:33

escottdiuneigh, ok what are the permissions on that folder?07:35
escottAfdal, and of course it doesn't because removing documentation is always a good idea. i'll see if i can find instructions online07:35
diuneighescott: don't know.. how to check?07:35
AfdalThat guide says nothing about chroot07:35
Afdaloh07:36
escottAfdal, so this is a bit terse but it has all the parts that are needed http://zeldor.biz/2010/12/install-grub-from-chroot/07:36
escottAfdal, the only changes you might make to that are that you evidently want to be installing to the pbr instead of the mbr so you would say /dev/sda# where # is your ubuntu partition. grub will likely complain so you would have to force it07:37
AfdalOkay, I'll try that now escott07:37
Ho^OhHow can I know if my server is capable of HARDWARE RAID 0?07:37
AfdalNo, not sd#07:37
AfdalRAID partitions are read as dev/mapper/blahblah07:37
escottAfdal, and you probably need to mkdir /mnt since it won't exist on your livecd and of course adjust /dev/sda1 to reference your ubuntu partition as well07:37
* jetole goes back to #ubuntu07:38
jetoleoops. wrong chan07:38

escott!man | Afdal, in this case "man grub-install"07:48
AfdalIs that a terminal command?07:48
ubottuAfdal, in this case "man grub-install": The "man" command brings up the Linux manual pages for the command you're interested in. Try "man intro" at the  command line, or see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal | Manpages online: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/07:48
Afdalah okay07:48
diuneighescott: does that look ok?07:49
escottdiuneigh, the destination folder is root owned. you should chown it to yourself07:50
szalthat'll be a hard task to do on NTFS07:50
llutz_you cannot chown on ntfs, you need mount options (uid/gid) for that07:50
AfdalOkay so what I gather from that...   "/usr/sbin/grub-install --recheck --no-floppy /dev/mapper/nvidia_aeedagcb2 --force" is the right command?07:50
escottszal, llutz thanks07:50
AfdalNo wait, "/usr/sbin/grub-install --recheck --no-floppy --force /dev/mapper/nvidia_aeedagcb2"?07:51
escottdiuneigh, just see if you can "touch /destination/test" first07:51
escottAfdal, yep07:51

escottAfdal, test it and see if it boots. nothing else to do07:53
AfdalIt shouldn't boot07:54
Afdalright...  ?07:54
AfdalThe goal is to go to Windows' NT loader first07:54

ubottuAfdal program name is nautilus: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)08:03

escottHo^Oh, so my guess and its only a guess. is that you install the kernel as usual, then install mdadm, then make sure mdadm is a loaded module on boot and update-initramfs08:05
AfdalNope, not that either08:05

=== sherif is now known as Guest38762
escottbullgard4, callbacks are (generally) function pointers called by an event handler to "callback" to the code that bound to the event08:09
llutz_bullgard4: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Callback_(computer_programming)08:10
escottbullgard4, in this case poweroff.c is binding to a sysrq event which is handled by a kernel input event handler, and is giving it a function pointer that i is requesting be called when that key combination is pressed08:10
AfdalAll right, I -think- that did it08:10

=== szal_ is now known as szal
zyracksispiliakis: It's probably an issue with wine not telling unity that the program has closed properly. If you get wine to emulate a virtual desktop, then run eve fullscreen in that, you shouldn't lose that much desktop space. Not much more I can help with, sorry08:28
auronandacepiliakis: wine has issues with compiz08:29

hp__no my college allows torrnts download08:34
hp__else on which channel can i know about it08:34
auronandacepiliakis: and what makes you think wine is causing that instead of compiz?08:34
AfdalIs this simply command line with no options called GNU GRUB version 1.99-12ubuntu5, and I can't figure out how to boot from that08:34
themonitorhp__: Then why do you need a proxy?08:35
AfdalSo first off, is that GRUB2?08:35
piliakisafdal if you want to repair/reinstall grub the way i use is a flash stick boot of ubuntu and then run boot-repair08:35

charles_____i don't know how to set it up and connect it09:38
jetolescarleo: as far as I know that doesn't help and I've looked into the USB 2.0 speed issue quite extensively. In fact, if I recall correctly, it's a kernel issue that hasn't yet been corrected09:39
scarleojetole, It doesn't work fully for me either but sure got better09:40
jetolescarleo: but I am addressing this from memory when I looked at it 2 months ago and I may now be mistaken09:40
jetolescarleo: what speed do you get?09:40
jetolespacebug-: don't mind my chatter. Still putting the solution together for you09:40
scarleojetole, don't remember and right now I have no usb stick09:41
spacebug-it's ok09:41
jetolescarleo: I don't recall what speed I got either but I'd probably know if you said something that I knew was well above mine09:41
scarleojetole, I know I saw some improvement though, but I also read it will vary from hardware to hardware09:41
scarleojetole, definitely not solved :)09:42
jetolescarleo: I do remember endless ubuntu forum threads and launchpad bug reports though that were all unanswered or said there is no current solution09:42
scarleojetole, I'll google it a bit09:42
jetolescarleo: yeah I was kind of pissed. I hate it when windows can do something simple with a common piece of commodity hardware and there is no Linux solution to do the same. A little depressed at that too09:43
jetolescarleo: well it's not my stick or question at the moment09:43
scarleojetole, we can do so many things better than win anyway so we are still way ahead, but I know the feeling ;)09:44

themonitorGuest28570: ubuntu-restricted-extras gives you lots of stuff as well as flash.09:48
themonitoroh...  I guess he left.09:48
jetolesaju_m: if there was default data to put in that file it would already be there. There is default data for your system but it's not stored in ~/.vimrc and if you specify anything in ~/.vimrc that's already specified for the system then ~/.vimrc takes precedence09:49
jetolethemonitor: yeah but if I had to throw in my two cents you can get a much newer version of flash from the adobe web site but I didn't feel like walking anyone through that right now09:50

tay__Anyone know why I can't access my router config?10:12

tay__name server 192.168.1.100 I think10:14
ubuntufuck of10:14
jetoletay__: that's probably being set by your DHCP server but if you want to over ride it, edit /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf and add the line: supersede domain-name-servers NEW_NAMESERVER10:16
robin0800soulraven: its an indicator-xchat or something like that10:16
jetoletay__: replace NEW_NAMESERVER with the name server you want to replace it with10:16
nickkissimoCIAO A TUTTI10:16
jetoletay__: if you want to add a new name server and keep the others but have the new name server as the first server on your list, add the line prepend domain-name-servers NEW_NAMESERVER10:16
jetoletay__: after you add that line, if say eth0 is the nic connected to the network, run: dhclient -r eth0 && dhclient eth010:17
jetoletay__: or just /etc/init.d/networking restart10:18

llutz_!checkinstall | jetole10:18
ubottujetole: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!10:18
llutz_pnorman: just build the new version and install the resulting deb10:19

oCeanmivulf: see /etc/alternatives, your gnome-www-browser is probably linked to default /usr/bin/firefox10:39
diverdudellutz_: i can start it in safe mode only10:39
diverdudellutz_: or recovery mode i think its called10:40
cypher-neomivulf, Okay. So here's how. Open the Terminal and type (without the quotes) "sudo update-alternatives --get-selections"10:40
jetoleoCean: kinda seems like a step backwards. Is that protected against upgrades and apt-get/aptitude/synaptic installs?10:40
llutz_diverdude: fs-errors, broken files/configs? what exactly is b0rked?10:40
jetoleoCean: I guess there's always the chattr +i option to protect it at least10:41
oCeanjetole: if you have more than one version of certain software installed, 'update-alternatives' is the proper way to set defaults10:41
cypher-neomivulf, I think most likely the directory tree you are looking for x-www-browser10:41
oCeanjetole: those are just symlinks, so nothing to do with updates etc10:41
cypher-neomivulf, And when you look at the tree, it will tell you what the current default for that is.10:41
jetoleoCean: How do I change the default for my user but not the whole system?10:41
oCeanjetole: not through alternatives10:42
jetoleright10:42
melvincvI need to change autoplay for blank DVD to 'do nothing', but I had set it to open CD/DVD creator. Now I don't get the option to change it back to do nothing?10:42
jetoleoCean: so how?10:42
oCeanjetole: I have no idea, not working with multiple users. And that was not the question10:42
diverdudellutz_: i have no idea what is broken,....it starts booting and when it comes to this place where it says *starting all kinds of stuff10:43
kalimojokindone: cant sent to #defocus10:43
jetoleoCean: well ok at not working with multiple users but that is the question. I just asked it10:43
cypher-neomivulf, Now type "update-alternatives --list x-www-browser" to see which alternatives are available to be selected on your system. Hopefully both of your browsers will be displayed.10:43
diverdudellutz_: so it writes starting and stopping a lot of things, and in the end it says checking battery state and then it just hangs there10:43
robin0800melvincv: I think ubuntu-tweak can do that10:44
cypher-neomivulf, If it is displayed, type "sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser" and select which browser you want to be default from the menu that shows up.10:44
cypher-neomivulf, Let me know if that works. :)10:44
melvincvI'm on Natty.10:44
sda1986hi, have a i5 on my laptop and i want compile my kernel, can I use my AmdX6 to do that?10:45
jetoleoCean: also the proper way to do something is not change the whole system for ones own personal needs and on the system I am using now, 10.04, this is easily done. If what you proposed is documented as the proper way to do things then the documents are mistaken10:45
mecoI've installed a new bittorrent client. How do I make new torrents be handled by the new instead of the old client?10:45
diverdudellutz_: are you there+10:45
diverdude?10:45
Ben64sda1986: why do you want to compile a kernel?10:46
oCeanjetole: the way cypher-neo just explained to mivulf is the proper way. I have no idea what the documentation says10:46
sda1986Ben64, the standard kernel on repository doesn't support some stuff of my new laptop, most important touchpad, with a 3.2 kernel it support it10:47
cypher-neojetole, oCean, I just quoted the documentation. ;)10:47
oCeanthere you go10:47
diverdudellutz: last time the problem was with graphic drivers and i gave up fixing it10:47
diverdudellutz: i suspect its the same problem again10:47
Ben64sda1986: you could upgrade to 12.0410:47
=== arpitgoyal is now known as arpit
cypher-neojetole, oCean, However, on 10.04 there is a GUI interface that is much easier to use than Terminal commands.10:48
jetoleoCean: it may be the documented way or the commonly accepted way but the logic to state it is the proper way is flawed and while it may work in mivulf's case it should only be used in a circumstance where the user knows that they want to change it system wide and for everything else there should be a standard default procedure on how to do it for just your user10:48
mysteriousdarrenmeco: I would uninstall the old one10:48
jetolecypher-neo: yeah but it's not just a case of what was there but basic system administration skills which dictate best practices10:48
sda1986Ben64,  yes but it's still alpha isn't it? I want a stable system, i can live with beta but not with alpha10:48
mecomysteriousdarren: ok...10:48
oCeanjetole: ok, but again the question is "how to set another version of firefox as a default in ubuntu 11.10 by using symlinks"10:49
jetolecypher-neo and oCean: it's like comparing telling a user to edit a file in /usr/share/vim when instead they should place the change in ~/.vimrc10:49
mysteriousdarrenmeco: what did you install? what was the old one?10:49
jetoleoCean: I didn't say anything about symlinks10:49
cypher-neojetole, There's no such thing as basic when using symlinks. The 10.04 program updated the "update-alternatives" just the same as the command function does.10:50
Ben64sda1986: its doing a lot better now than before. all the times i've compiled a kernel on ubuntu things haven't worked how they should, so i wouldn't recommend it10:50
mecomysteriousdarren: I'm moving from transmission to tribler10:50
cypher-neojetole, And you were talking about symlinks when suggesting the Preferred Applications program.10:50
=== arpitgoyal is now known as arpitgyl
jetolecypher-neo: in 10.04, I don't know how it works but I know it doesn't affect all users10:50
oCeannvm, I don't see this discussion going anywhere, let's move back to support10:50
sda1986Ben64, ok, i'll make a try!10:51
cypher-neojetole, update-alternatives doesn't affect all users either.10:51
cypher-neojetole, It only affects the current user, or global settings if the user is admin10:51
m0ron5where do i put pci=routeirq for USB2 support? I cannot find the menu.1st (didn't know it has changed of late)10:51
jetolecypher-neo: I was referring to mivulf's question but now I'm correcting oCean who is saying the proper way to do it is to make changes for all users because that's what someone else told him (I assume since he mentioned he didn't read it in any documentation)10:51
mysteriousdarrenmeco: I am not familar with tribler sorry10:51
cypher-neojetole, And there's more to the command if you want to affect it globally10:51
jetolecypher-neo: ah well that changes everything10:52
jetolecypher-neo: and I didn't realize10:52
cypher-neojetole, Depending on how many people use the computer, it is much easier to make changes globally. It's also more secure to make global changes.10:52
jetoleso, cypher-neo and oCean: this was all my mistake. No one had mentioned update-alternatives only affects the current user till now and I didn't know10:52
cypher-neojetole, Once you've patched a problem you don't want to leave it open on one user account to be reopened.10:52
jetolecypher-neo: true but that should be an alternative action vs. a default action10:53
mivulfcypher-neo: jetole: ok big thx for a help, sirs.10:53
cypher-neojetole, Let me check... just to be sure...10:53
bsdVIPi got banned in here yesterday by freakin ocean10:53
jetolecypher-neo: speaking as a sys admin myself, the changes should affect all users only when you're intending to affect all users10:53

asiekierkamy dad's running a ubuntu 10.10 livecd and to get teamviewer working i need to install ia32-libs10:54

diverdudei have nvidia drivers. WHat should i write in order to do? sudo apt-get remove --purge video drivers ? is it sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-current ?10:54
jetolecypher-neo: I assumed this was regarding changes in /etc/alternatives and I shouldn't have assumed anything10:54
scarleom0ron5, in /etc/default/grub the line starting with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT10:54
jetolecypher-neo & oCean: again, my mistake10:55
oCeanjetole: no prob, really10:55
duelleHi there, currently I have a partition encrypted. Now I would like to do a fresh install of my system. Do I have to back anything to be able to mount my encrypted partition after reinstall?10:55
scarleom0ron5, or for just testing just edit the line for one boot in grub when booting10:55
cypher-neoquiescens, Oh really?10:55
jetole... oh10:56
cypher-neoquiescens, I was under the impression that it was single user, unless you tagged it with --admindir10:56
jetole... oh @ quiescens10:56

paraxxohow can i make make my res 1024x600 16:9 in LUbuntu10:57
cypher-neoquiescens, Oh...10:57
cypher-neojetole, My bad. It's possible I was wrong. Since I'm the only user on my computer, I've never had a chance to check and see if any other user accounts are affected by an update-alternatives change.10:58
m0ron5one more thing before i reboot the system to test this out... where can i put 'apt-get clean' in the system scripts to be sure that the apt cache is cleared either on bootup or shutdown (need this to be transparent.. without a password challenge.. irrespective of the user rebooting the system!!)10:59
cypher-neom0ron5, You could put it in .bash, but it would need to be a shell script.11:00
cypher-neom0ron5, I'm not sure I can help you there. I just got started with Shell... I have my computer doing some very interesting things on startup, but nothing like that.11:01
m0ron5cypher-neo, but wouldn't that fail without the sudo privileges and password?11:01
jetolem0ron5: if it doesn't have to be on startup or shutdown but instead every so many days (can be every 1 day) see /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/10periodic11:01
pnormanm0ron5: I can't give you exact details, but I suggest reading /etc/init.d/README11:02
testtopenjdk-6-jre takes 50%-90% CPU even if the program takes 1% CPU when run in windows with the sun jre, is it a bug with ubuntu11:02
jetolem0ron5: specifically APT::Periodic::AutocleanInterval "5";11:02
jetolem0ron5: and this would in fact be the preferred way to do it11:02

cypher-neodiverdude, I can try11:05
diverdudecypher-neo: thx man. its just totally gone11:05
cypher-neodiverdude, Okay. I assume you want some files left on the hard drive though.11:05
jetolecypher-neo: yeah I just finished my testing, update-alternatives seems to be global only11:05
diffredhi! Ubuntu 11.10, I have changed my user name in System Settings, everything seems fine except when I open a terminal I still get oldname@computer~. I have already restarted and still appears. Any idea how can I change the terminal username? Thanks in advance11:05
diverdudecypher-neo: no programs responded so i did hard reboot and now cannot start the system again11:05
jetolecypher-neo: as far as I can tell11:06
cypher-neodiverdude, Can you boot from a USB stick or Live CD?11:06
diverdudecypher-neo: i would like the old system to work again...so not reinstall because i got stuff lying in that system and setups which i would like to keep11:07
diverdudecypher-neo: i can boot in recovery mode and get a terminal11:07
cypher-neodiverdude, Do you have a spare 2Gb USB drive?11:07

Myrttiparaxxo: and what happens when you try to do what the error message suggests?11:08
Stelpai have another question; don't worry, this one shouldn't be distro-specific11:08
Stelpaif you don't mind me asking, i mean :x11:09
Stelpathis place is just much more friendly than mint's help chan :\11:09
diverdudecypher-neo:  ok im listening11:09
jetoleStelpa: what is the question?11:09
cypher-neodiverdude, Boot the computer using a Live CD, and click "Try" not "Install" so it boots to the Live CD desktop. Then pop in your USB drive and use the USB Drive creator to make a Live-USB-drive that you can boot from. Then restart the computer, ejecting the CD, and boot from the USB drive.11:09
paraxxoMyrtti: in the first time i tried to fix missing it output error , second time it worked . lubuntu is stable ?11:10
Stelpajetole: :D11:10
Stelpahow can you make linux automatically copy files from one folder to another?11:10
cypher-neodiverdude, This frees up your CD/DVD burner, so you can mount the hard drive and burn files to CD/DVD11:10
Stelpai have just recently set up my harddrive, and i would like to make my system automatically copy files from one folder to another on the new harddrive11:10
jetoleStelpa: don't know if there is any standard solution but try inosync11:10
Stelpaas backup11:10
Stelpahmm11:10
Stelpai will look, ty!11:10
cypher-neodiverdude, Make sense?11:11
diverdudecypher-neo: yeah but what about all my setups... ? i thinks its just a matter of fixing the graphics drivers somehow11:11
scarleoStelpa, just make a small copy script that does the job and run it with a cron job11:11
jetoleStelpa: yeah there isn't really a standard solution to that as far as I know. backups are often scheduled11:11
Stelpascarleo: i am too noob for this :x11:11
diverdudecypher-neo: i dont think its necessary to reformat everything11:11
wenninghello11:11
cypher-neodiverdude, I am mainly trying to let you backup your files before tweaking your system, just in case.11:11
Stelpacould you maybe help write it, or would that be too much to ask? :x11:11
jetoleStelpa: then you would be lost with inosync too. If that is too newbie for you then you may be up the creek without a paddle11:11
jetoleStelpa: how would you set this up on windows?11:12
paraxxoMyrtti: i installed grandr and it doesnt let u choose 16:9 or 4:3 or w.e u want11:12

CharminTheMoose_Is it possible for two kernels of the same version on the same system to co-exist without too much hassle?11:12
jetoleStelpa: me either11:12
cypher-neodiverdude, What happened to the graphics drivers you were using?11:12
cypher-neodiverdude, Were they working fine before? Did you change anything?11:12
Stelpabut it would be convenient; transmission (the torrent client) automatically saves .torrent files to a directory that seems like it can't be changed11:13

cypher-neodiverdude, What problem?11:14
cypher-neodiverdude, What does it do?11:14
Stelpabut, how could i make it, as jetole said, do it on a schedule?11:14
scarleoStelpa, yes, then run crontab -e and follow instructions or google for more help11:14
jetoleStelpa: heh. no that's not all. That's a bash script he posted that you then need to set as a bash script, give it executable permissions then add it to the crontab11:14
Myrttiparaxxo: yes?11:14
paraxxoMyrtti: when i installed Ubuntu-Netbook-Edition it was perfect resolution with 1024x600 16:9 but it was too slow for my netbook so im trying lubuntu now11:14

Stelpai know how to chmod, i am not THAT newbie, but still i'm a noob >_<11:16
Stelpaty for all the help! i'm gonna try this :D11:16
jetoleStelpa: scarleo's solution works and pretty well. There are a lot of inotify solutions that I think work better but if a bash script is too much for you then, I'm sorry to say, but at this point I'm a little too tired to walk you through it so I'm gonna turn this over to scarleo who can help you better then I can11:16
cypher-neodiverdude, What is the problem? Can you describe it?11:16
jetolelucidmadman: did you ask in #samba?11:16
Stelpajetole: that's fine, ty very much for being patient with me... i know ubuntu and mint don't get along too well, and honestly i kinda regret choosing mint, but its a bit too late to go back on it now :s11:17
Stelpaso anyways ty for being nice :)11:17
lucidmadmani haven't, I'll try there, thanks jetole!11:17
jetoleStelpa: while this is a ubuntu room, unlike your previous question from earlier, this one actually could be equally asked in a #aix room or #hpux or #redhat or just about any *nix room so no worries11:18

Jacruthjetole, I did not format it (but I need to fix it, thanks dad!) so I don't know what did my father do with it11:24

damo22unless he formatted the partition again11:27
quiescensJacruth: but if it was properly formatted then it isn't worth the effort trying unless it is worth a lot11:27
jetoleJacruth: a partition table only exists within the first 512 bytes of a disk (at least the most common and almost universal foramt of the MS-DOS partition table does)11:27
damo22then its gone11:27

scarleoStelpa, yeah :)11:27
Jacruthjetole, it makes sense11:27

jetoleJacruth: I'm siding with damo22. testdisk looks like it can do exactly what you need11:30
diverdudecypher-neo: exactly11:30
Ben64damo22: yes you do11:30
cypher-neodiverdude, Uh-oh...11:30
=== papa is now known as angelofdeath
jetoleBen64: if you need to know where the old partitions started and stopped then that's not the tool you would use11:30
diverdudecypher-neo: i tried reinstalling nvidia drivers11:30
Ben64  rescue START END                         rescue a lost partition near START        and END11:30
damo22Ben64: testdisk can recover without input like that11:31
jetoleBen64: granted gparted is great but there are tools that only need to know the disk to look at11:31
Jacruthcool!11:31
cypher-neodiverdude, Umm, this is an odd request. Try booting from the CD and see how far along in the boot you get. If you manage to boot the Live CD, click Try Ubuntu and see how far along that gets.11:31
Ben64parted != gparted11:31
cypher-neodiverdude, Out of curiousity, what are the specs on your computer?11:31
bobo123what is the difference between gnome (version 3) and gnome classic ??11:31
diverdudecypher-neo: its a lenovo W52011:31
cypher-neobobo123, GNOME3 doesn't use Unity11:32
jetoleBen64: no it's not the same app. you are right. Who said differently?11:32
jetoleJacruth: try testdisk that damo22 mentioned11:32
UidXcan pulseaudio stream an audio outside of my local network?11:32
Ben64jetole: i said parted, you said gparted11:32
bobo123cypher-neo, why are you mentioning Unity?11:32
paraxxocypher-neo: so should i just install UNR cuz theres no lnr11:32
jetoleBen64: oh my mistake11:32
diverdudecypher-neo: ill try live boot11:32
Jacruthjetole, I'm installing it, thanks.11:32
damo22Jacruth: do you know how many partitions were there before?11:32
jetoleJacruth: No prob. Thank damo22 too11:32
jetole;-)11:32
cypher-neoparaxxo, I would try that.11:33
sarwotes11:33
Jacruthdamo22, sdb, I supose.11:33
cypher-neobobo123, Because you asked what the difference is, and I told you the basic difference.11:33
jetoleJacruth: sdb isn't a partition11:33
=== Administrator is now known as Guest24611
jetoleJacruth: a partition would be like sdb1, sdb2, etc11:33
paraxxocypher-neo: can u tell me if theres any other kinds of linux netbook edition , becus ubuntu netbook runs real slow11:33
cypher-neobobo123, My bad... You mentioned GNOME classic11:33
Jacruthsorry, language barrier.11:33
damo22Jacruth: did you split your drive into mulitple? or only 1?11:33
bobo123cypher-neo, yes11:34
Jacruthdamo22, wait a second, I'll show you something11:34
jetoledamo22: he ran file against it and it showed a MBR and other data to indicate it's a partitioned disk11:34
cypher-neobobo123, The difference between GNOME3 and Classic is Classic resembles GNOME back in the GNOME2.x days (Ubuntu 10.10 and previous versions)11:34
diverdudecypher-neo: live boot works just fine11:34
jetoledamo22: or at least that it's not a disk with extX on it outside of a partition table11:34
diverdudecypher-neo: i dont think anything is wrong with the computer. the problem is ubuntu11:34
bobo123cypher-neo, so how can i change the theme in gnome 3?11:34
Jacruthdamo22, what about this? http://i.imgur.com/83Kde.png11:34
bobo123cypher-neo, i copied a theme in the .themes directory, but no theme is shown in the gnome-tweak-tool11:35
Stelpascarleo: i think i got it working! :D11:35
damo22Jacruth: you can use this info to recover11:35
cypher-neobobo123, GNOME3 is a version of GNOME that doesn't use Unity (like 11.04 to current) but uses a similar interface based on Mutter.11:35
Stelpascarleo: ty for all the help ^_^11:35
jetoleJacruth: that looks good but you showed fdisk -l which didn't show a partition there11:35
diverdudecypher-neo: so how can i fix it11:36
damo22Jacruth: did you make that yourself AFTER trying to recover?11:36
quiescensjetole: it did, it said there was 1 extended partition, and nothing else, but its in a different language11:36
Jacruthjetole, that is why I'm a little confused. Why gparted shows them?11:36
Jacruthdamo22, I didn't.11:36
cypher-neobobo123, Take the theme out of the .themes directory. Open gnome-tweak-tool and click on the Themes tab. Install the theme by loading it directly in the tool. It will install the theme to the correct directory if it is a valid theme.11:36
bobo123cypher-neo, but it is not possible to install gnome 2 on ubuntu 11.10?11:36
damo22Jacruth: it says there are no partitions except an extended one11:37
quiescensanyway, try the testdisk thing if someone is walking you through it, and be careful11:37
jetolequiescens: ah you're right. my mistake and no hable espanol11:37
ubuntuciaoo11:37
ubuntu!lista11:37
ubottuThis is not a file sharing channel (or network); be sure to read the channel topic. If you're looking for information about me, type « /msg ubottu !bot ». If you're looking for a channel, see « /msg ubottu !alis ».11:37
quiescensjetole: yeah, i was looking at it thinking the same thing11:37
bobo123cypher-neo, it will be of great help if you could tell me where is the open file button in the gnome-tweak-tool, because i can't find such button11:37
diverdudecypher??11:38
diverdudecypher-neo: +11:38
cypher-neodiverdude, Don't know. Last time I had a computer hang halfway through boot like what you describe it was a faulty video card (one that needed to be completely replaced). Time before that, it was a faulty CPU.11:38
jetolequiescens: yeah I just mis-read it is all11:38
damo22Jacruth: how big was your old drive when you were using it?11:38
cypher-neodiverdude, Both were hardware problems...11:38
jetoleJacruth: wait! stop! run: file -s /dev/sdb111:38
Jacruthdamo22, I think there is not any way to know it, I supo...11:38
diverdudecypher-neo: but if it works in live boot then i guess its not a hardware problem?11:38
cypher-neodiverdude, That's what I'm trying to test. If it's hardware or Ubuntu11:39
Jacruthjetole, http://paste.ubuntu.com/837657/11:39
cypher-neodiverdude, If it hangs on a Live CD boot, it's almost definitely hardware.11:39
Jacruthit is a x86 boot sector11:39
jetoleJacruth: just for fun, run: sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt11:39
diverdudecypher-neo: it does not hang on Live CD boot11:39
cypher-neobobo123, Click on the Themes tab. Do you see a load file button next to the Theme changer?11:39
cypher-neodiverdude, Well, that's good... I suppose.11:40
jetoleJacruth: and if there is no output then run: ls /mnt11:40
Jacruthjetole, it says I need to specify the filetype11:40
JacruthI tried with ext2, ext3, ntfs and vfat11:40
Jacruthwithout success11:40
jetoleJacruth: meh. ok. I leave you in the hands of damo22 and testdisk11:40
Jacruththanks11:40
diverdudecypher-neo: yes...but that leaves me with a broken ubuntu again11:40
diverdude:/11:41
bobo123cypher-neo, no there is no such button, there is only: Window Theme (Drop Down Box), Shell Theme (Not available - Shell user-extension not enabled), GTK-Theme DropDown Box11:41
jetoleJacruth: yeah if it's a known fs type it should/would have auto detected it11:41
diverdudeman im gonna go for linux mint i think...hoping for fewer problems11:41
cypher-neoOH!!11:41

ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode12:03

bobo123cypher-neo, after the upgrade i will check the version12:04

kaltorakHello, I'm trying to remove the privileges from a user to mount external media, or access it, I've unmarked all privileges at System>Administration>Users and groups>Advanced settings>user privileges, I've trying with the gdm-guest session, and so, but all the same, still mounting the usb key when I insert it, and has full access to it, I was wondering how it's possible this ? and how can I avoid this undesired mount ?12:31

cypher-neoroura, I hate USC. It doesn't give proper explanations for failure.12:33
cypher-neoroura, Try running "sudo apt-get install gimp" from the Terminal12:33
cypher-neoroura, That will tell you why it won't install. And I can work from there...12:33
rumpe1kaltorak, hmm... maybe you can deactivate fuse somehow? Or look into udev rule definitions? Just some thoughts.12:34
kaltorakrumpel, consider that I need to unprivileged just one user, not all the users, I will read about udev12:34
rumpe1kaltorak, udev is more low-level. You can define, what happens when certain patterns match a detected device.12:35

mac_osxI have a quick question if someone has a minute. After MANY hours, I finally found a way to access my etc/passwd file. I need to know how many dudes are in me.12:36

lucidmadmanchipzzz: how do I fix that?13:23
Jonathan_Well, I run apt-get update and apt-get upgrade at regular basis, but I did not know that the kernel was upgraded as well13:24
holsteinJonathan_: i find those commands dont always upgrade the kernel though.. so i use aptitude13:24
Jonathan_holstein: I think my issues came with a recent upgrade13:24
Jonathan_holstein: But I am not sure13:24
Jonathan_holstein: How can I check for versions in the file /etc/default/grub?13:24
holsteinJonathan_: cool... thats what i was proposing.. an upgrade that had broken something13:25
oCeanJonathan_: run  dpkg -l | grep linux-image will show you the kernel packages installed13:25
oCeanJonathan_: then,  apt-cache policy linux-image-server to see if a newer version is available13:26
Jonathan_oCean, holstein:13:26
Jonathan_ii  linux-image-3.0.0-12-generic-pae      3.0.0-12.20                             Linux kernel image for version 3.0.0 on x8613:26
Jonathan_ii  linux-image-3.0.0-14-generic-pae      3.0.0-14.23                             Linux kernel image for version 3.0.0 on x8613:26
Jonathan_ii  linux-image-generic-pae               3.0.0.14.16                             Generic Linux kernel image13:26
oCeanJonathan_: please don't paste here13:26
Jonathan_Sorry13:26
holsteinJonathan_: you should use http://paste.ubuntu.com/ , and i wont know from looking... this is going to be specific to your hardware13:26
Chipzzzlucidmadman: i haven't installed vbox for a long time, so i'm not sure that's the problem... better read up on it so i don't give you bad advice :-)13:27
oCeanJonathan_: oh you have generic version, not -server. Run  apt-cache policy linux-image-generic-pae  to see if newer versions are available13:27
Jonathan_oCean: http://paste.ubuntu.com/837785/13:27
=== BHawkHackerist is now known as BlackHawker
holsteinJonathan_: assuming it has anything to do with the kernel, which it could... you can boot one of the earlier images as i suggested to test13:27
oCeanJonathan_: try that for linux-image-generic-pae13:27
Jonathan_oCean: http://paste.ubuntu.com/837786/13:27
oCeanJonathan_: so there's a slightly newer version (3.0.0.15.17)  run  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade13:28

elementzis there any way to use resolution independent icon files in the 'Icon' entry within an applications .desktop file? I tried to use .iso and .svg, but none of them worked so far.13:37
elementzwhat filetype can i use?13:37
Jonathan_oCean: I have upgraded the kernel now and the server is running13:38
holsteinLuigi: it shouldnt... though i wouldnt do it that way, or suggest using wubi.. or installing an OS without backing up whats already there13:38
Jonathan_oCean: The freezes occur at random times, so time will probably tell if it's worked or not13:38
Jonathan_oCean: Hopefully it has :)13:38

mgaunard_Halexander9000: disable unity13:49
Chipzzzarunkumar413: does it work in firefox?13:50
HarmoniumYes, but before there was System>Preferences>Windows (or something to that effect) and you could change it to Ctrl or Meta. I don't see that option anymore (mainly because System disappeared).13:50
arunkumar413Chipzzz: didn't check. i'll check13:50
Halexander9000mgaunard_: Is that safe? And if so, how am I going to do it?13:50
mgaunard_Harmonium: it's probably in keyboard shortcuts13:50
Chipzzzarunkumar413: k13:50
Harmoniummgaunard_: how do I access it?13:51
TalatyHarmonium, Maybe with gconf-editor13:51
mgaunard_Halexander9000: I personally don't use unity, but I assume you can just disable the unity plugin in ccsm13:51
mgaunard_Halexander9000: compizconfigsettings-manager13:51
mgaunard_Harmonium: keyboard shortcuts is in the new system settings thing13:51
mgaunard_it's Keyboard > shortcuts sorry13:52
Halexander9000mgaunard_: Erm, that might be a problem, considering that the only way I see that I can configure anything is through the use of the Settings menu on the Unity bar. There's nothing there that says what you just told me to look for.13:52
mgaunard_Harmonium: I'm afraid I don't see what you need though :(13:53
HarmoniumI'm checking it now. I don't see it either.13:53
TalatyHarmonium, "gnome-tweak-tool" or "gconf-editor"13:53
TalatyHarmonium, gnome-tweak-tool" i i can remember, let me check13:54

Dr_willisBUbo_:   depending on your Hard drive layout. you may want to set up several parttions14:23
ChipzzzBUbo_: i like it much better too... don't even waste the disk space for a dual-boot ;-)14:23
BUbo_Dr_willis: several partitions? what for ?14:23
Ho^OhBUbo_: Duelbooting?14:24
Dr_willisBUbo_:  / for /home and swap = are commonly used.14:24
crizzythanks. watching 60hz vomit on 120hz lcd was horrible14:24
crizzy:-)14:24
ChipzzzBUbo_: plus the win7 partition14:24
BUbo_for /home ill put ~200GB and for swap how much ?14:24
Dr_willisswap depends on your needs. and if you want to use hibernate/suspend.14:24
BUbo_isnt the swap partition default with the ubuntu installation? or you have to set it up yourself ?14:24
dsnydersHi all!  I somehow managed to delete my eth0.  It is not in the list in System>Preferences>Network, and when I try to add it there, it says that the device is not managed.  Where are the config files?14:24
ChipzzzBUbo_: 8 gig or better14:24
Dr_willisit makes one by default. You can tweak its size.14:25
Halexander9000HOLLY FRAGGIN' HECK... what just happened? I pressed alt-tab out of habit and the whole screen went blank.14:25
BUbo_Oh14:25
Ho^OhBUbo_: It's default. You can set it up without it too.14:25
BUbo_so ill make it 8 GB14:25
BUbo_it should be fine i guess14:25
=== BlackHawker is now known as WhiteEye
Ho^OhBUbo_: 8GBs for swap?       Or for Ubuntu itself?14:25
BUbo_swap14:25
ChipzzzBUbo_: swap14:26
Ho^OhThat depends on how much ram you have.14:26
BUbo_so, first backup everything to external hdd, format whoel drive, isntall ubuntu 11.10, install win7, install drivers, apps, updates, etc.. long long day :|14:26
BUbo_4GB14:26
Ho^OhOkay, 8GBs is fine.14:26
BUbo_Is there a way to backup setting or files for ubuntu ?14:26
ChipzzzBUbo_: you have to install win7 before ubuntu or win7 will mess up grub14:26
Dr_willisBUbo_:  your users home dir - has all your user settings.14:26
Halexander9000Alright guys, it Configuring LXDM It's asking me to choose the Default  Display Manager: lightdm or lxdm?14:26
Ho^OhCopy hidden files in: /home/bubo/14:27
Halexander9000in*14:27
BUbo_Yes i know that Chipzzz, i made that mistake once..14:27
Ho^OhHidden files and directories.14:27
ikoniamode +q bullgard*!*@*14:27
ChipzzzBUbo_: :-)14:27
BUbo_So I can copy and paste the /home dir ? that will overwrite all the setting with these that i am using atm, and will it install apps? or i have to install them again from start ?14:27
Halexander9000bazhang: Which one do I choose?14:27
ChipzzzBUbo_: yes, but make sure you copy all the hidden files and directories14:28
Dr_willisBUbo_:  installed apps are NOT normally in your home.14:28
Dr_willisunless you installed them there.14:28
ChipzzzBUbo_: but you have to install the apps again14:28
BUbo_so ill install first the apps then paste the settings?14:28
s0u][ight_hello, is there a tool to set a maximum download amount on a given network interface?14:28
ChipzzzBUbo_: yes14:28
Dr_willisorder shouldent matter much.14:29
Halexander9000Hello?14:29
Ho^OhBUbo_: Actually, this is possible:                Copying the entire /home/yourname                                    And on fresh Ubuntu install, only put back what you need. (Or just drop the entire folder back in there).14:29
Dr_willisYou could copy all your settings from home to your ubuntu one account for cloud backup. :)14:29
Halexander9000In Configuring LXDM It's asking me to choose the Default  Display Manager: lightdm or lxdm?14:29
ChipzzzBUbo_: Dr_willis is correct that the order won't matter in that regard14:29
BUbo_Ok then14:29
rakshasaCan anyone help me i'm migrating to a new system and have to backup my programs and configuration and user specific data. How do I go about. I heard that I just need to backup my /user /home en /etc , am i forgetting something here?14:29
BUbo_ubunutu one account ? how much space do i get there ?14:29
Ho^OhIf you ever mess up,            Backup your current  /home/yourname,                  Then delete EVERYTHING in /home/yourname.                     And then logout, login to get a fresh new desktop.14:30

BUbo_should i get 64bit or 32bit? It says recommended on the 32bit..14:30
Halexander9000I went with LXDM.14:30

BUbo_Ok, downloading ubunbu 11.1014:31
BUbo_any other stuff that I need to know ?14:31
AethelrickThe 32bit recommendation is for broader hardware support14:32
OerHeksHo^Oh, not true, and next 12.04 will be 64 bit recommended.14:32
Ho^OhAethelrick: That too.14:32
BUbo_so there is a chance some of my hardware wont be supported by the 64bit ?14:32
ChipzzzBUbo_: run a live cd before you commit to an install and you'll find out14:33
AethelrickIf your system is fully supported in 64bit mode and you have 4gb ram or more then it's worth going 64.14:33

eQuiNoX__hey everyone, the PATH env var usually uses ":" as the seperator. what happens what there's a ";" instead? is the path before it ignored or something?14:37
OerHeksChipzzz, you asked incompatible hardware, optimus ( intel & nvidia GPU)14:37
Ho^OhOerHeks: Weird, a lot of people then won't be able to use Ubuntu.14:37

BUbo_imo14:38
eQuiNoX__PATH or LD_LIBRARY_PATH, im assuming the behavior is somewhat similar14:38

BUbo_i used brasero14:41
tsimpsoneQuiNoX__: the semicolon is not a separator, it sees "/foo;/bar" as one path to "/foo;/bar", that's probably not what you want14:42
eQuiNoX__Chipzzz yeah i should but i just saw a shell script that uses ";" so im kinda confused14:42

tsimpsoneQuiNoX__: yes, but ';' is not a valid separator, it should be ':' to separate the paths in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH14:44

ubottuIn Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.14:52
