escottMoleMan, so boot the normal livecd, then mount your ubuntu partition to /media/ubuntu with sudo mkdir /media/ubuntu; sudo mount /dev/sda# /media/ubuntu; you then have to bind mount /proc and /dev and maybe /sys with sudo mount -o bind /proc /media/ubuntu/proc (same for dev and sys); mount the new boot partition with sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/ubuntu/boot; finally then sudo chroot /media/ubuntu; at this point you should be inside your ub00:00

c_smith_hey, I got a new Desktop, and I have no monitor to hook it up to, and I really would like to get started on installing Ubuntu 11.10 on it, and saw that it had an S-Video out jack, and found a VCR that has a similar jack (S-VIDEO out), and I'm wondering whether I can connect the 2 safely to get the PC to display on the TV.00:00
medemanand thanks to everybody who helped me, good night/day00:00
Ho^OhOer: What I really need is DEBOOTSTRAP into Raid0 tutorial.          Which doesn't seem to be out here.00:00
c_smith_I have a monitor at home.00:00
MoleManescott: so i need a normal disk not server?00:00
escottMoleMan, you can use either. everything you are doing is command line. so just boot to a normal commandline on the cd00:01
bulletxtdoes someone know why ubuntu wants to install postfix when doing do-release-upgrade on ubuntu 8.04 (upgrades to 10.04)?00:01
Ho^OhThe steps/path names changes in between tutorials and I do not know which is which. (sda/md0) because the tutorials were not made for my situation.00:01
Gentoo64c_smith_: possibly, try it...00:02
Gentoo64c_smith_: i dont hear that used very often though :)00:02
fellayaboyhow can i see the commands for those in /etc/init.d/??i tried man and --help but im doing it wrong00:02
c_smith_ok, I have a 32" TV at home with VGA, HDMI, and a bunch of other ports in the back if this doesn't pan out.00:02
overcluckerfellayaboy: not all the init scripts are even functional00:03
fellayaboyi see00:03
c_smith_and I'd need to find said cord in a box full of 'em. :P00:03
fellayaboywell for those that are functional...is their a way00:03
Gentoo64c_smith_: your best bet would be the vga or hdmi00:03
fellayaboyor do i have to look at scattered documenations found in other folders and such00:03
cppdevI love linux :)00:03
c_smith_Gentoo64, true dat, gotta love VGA.00:04
Gentoo64yea im still using vga00:04
overcluckerfellayaboy: mostly you'll only have stop start reload and force-reload.00:04
fellayaboywhere can i see info about my vpn malfunctioning..which logs00:05
c_smith_Gentoo64, funny thing is the tower seems to have one of the latest iteration of VGA, and 2 old VGA ports..... strange, never seen one like that.00:05
akSeyafolks.. quick question, i need to change some setting on kernel .config but when I run "make modules", scripts/kconfig/conf --silentoldconfig Kconfig is run and is overwrite .config00:05
c_smith_it was custom built for someone who is no longer alive.00:05
akSeyawhat can I do?00:05
tristan3199usso after upgrading to 11.10 my speakers started "hissing" loudly.. seems like something to do with my drivers..00:05
priXon`does ubuntu support multiple monitors (i.e. connecting the notebook to the tv for example)? because on my old r60, I've never managed to enable it in a suitable manner00:06

t432I am unable to login after adding a file to the etc/profile.d/... how can i remove this file?00:06
Gentoo64c_smith_: theres only 1 vga afaik00:06
c_smith_priXon`, yes it does, and it's easy to set up.00:06
fellayaboystart stop reload and status00:06
fellayaboygot it00:06
fellayaboythanks overclucker00:06
tristan3199usanyideas how to fix this??00:06
c_smith_Gentoo64, yeah, as far as I can tell, the difference is purely looks.00:06
overcluckerfellayaboy: you can read the initscript with a text editor00:06
ActionParsniptristan3199us: try:  killall pulseaudio; rm -r ~/.pulse*          wait a little while then try some sound stuff00:07
fellayaboywheres the initscript00:07
c_smith_the other two ports just look older (with pins sticking out)00:07
overcluckerfellayaboy: /etc/init.d00:07
priXon`ok, thanks00:07
fellayaboyoh what will that tell me...00:07
MoleManescott: does it matter if the new boot partition is sda4 it canvstill be flagged as the boot partition?00:07
fellayaboythe commands for each daemon/00:07
c_smith_priXon`, if you want, I could point you to the app you would search for in Unity.00:08
escottMoleMan, that shouldn't matter just be sure to reference the correct partitions in all your mounts (i've been assuming boot was sda1 so you would use sda4)00:08
tristan3199usactionParsnip: thank you.. it did turn off pulseaudio, however it still hisses at me..00:09
priXon`c_smith_, please do. although now, on my r60, i'm still using 10.04 (and I've got some problems because of ati radeon mobility)00:09
fellayaboywhats the log to see for checking whats wrong with network connections??00:10
ActionParsniptristan3199us: what is the output of:    wget -O alsa-info.sh http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh && chmod +x ./alsa-info.sh && ./alsa-info.sh00:10
overcluckerfellayaboy: init.d isn't really used very much in ubuntu, mostly it's ontrolled with sudo service start|stop|reload with configs in /etc/init00:10
c_smith_priXon`, this is assuming you are using Unity, open up the dash, and search "display" it'll be the one with the monitor with measuring tools on it.00:10
MoleManescott: should the files be in /boot? they appear to be in /boot/boot00:11
escottMoleMan, that would be the problem then. move them down a level00:11
overcluckerfellayaboy: erm, sudo service SERVICE  start|stop|reload|status00:11

MoleManah it was becase there was already a grub folder it wouldnt let me replace00:17
escottMoleMan, because of the grub install. its not too important. the main thing is the kernel. just rerun the grub-install and update-grub and dont worry about grub related files00:17
soulHello I have a question regarding of my radio tray. It shows playing a music with the title but I can't hear anything sound from radio tray. My audio works fine by the way, only my radio tray does not.00:17

jschallhow do i get rid of xorg-edgers? ppa-purge goes nuts and wants to hose my system00:24
dns53jschall there is a tool called ppa-purge to remove any packages installed by a ppa and install the standard version00:25
MoleManright, it boots, how do i add the existing  partition to the lvm and keep all files?00:25
Jordan_U!details | jschall00:25
ubottujschall: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."00:25

jschallJordan_U: http://pastebin.com/D83X7Z4N00:25
escottMoleMan, so at this point since you will be modifying the / partition you will have to work from a livecd because you cannot modify a mounted partition00:26
tristan3199usactionparsnip: will do.. u think maybe my sound driver has changed??00:26

_numbersjust upgraded to 11.10 and in gnome3 when i go to system settings > display i get an error "Could not get screen information" "RANDR extension is not present"00:27
Sentridohhey everyone00:27
_numbersso i go `sudo apt-get install xrandr` and i get an error "E: Package 'xrandr' has no installation candidate"00:27
dns53jschall hmm you might have some trouble there, you might have to work out what packages were installed  from that ppa yourself and work out the versions yourself using aptitude00:27
_numbers"However the following packages replace it:   x11-xserver-utils:i386 x11-xserver-utils"00:28
ActionParsniptristan3199us: it will be the same driver, just a different build..00:28
dns53jschall could you file a bug with ppa-purge?00:28
c_smith__numbers, what are you trying to do with xrandr?00:28
_numbersi just want to open the Display settings from System Settings00:28
c_smith__numbers, you might try installing libxrandr00:28
c_smith__numbers, aside from that, I don't know that xrandr can be installed by itself. and I'm pretty sure Xrandr is just a library.00:29
_numberslibxrandr2 is already the newest version.00:29
_numbersit used to be a binary00:29
c_smith__numbers, then you have it.00:29
c_smith__numbers, but I'd try installing the packages that it lists that replace what you are trying to install.00:30
jschalldns53: i don't have the first clue how to resolve this manually...00:30
MoleManescott: ok, the last bit i had to do from busybox but im not sure it will work for next bit due to limited functionality  will desktop livecd do\?00:30
c_smith__numbers, if it says they are installed, chance are you already have it.00:31
escottMoleMan, What last bit?00:31
_numbersx11-xserver-utils is already the newest version.00:31
_numbersi have it in /usr/bin/xrandr00:31
_numbersmaybe i need to run it00:31
MoleManfixing the boot00:31
_numbers"RandR extension missing"00:31
escottMoleMan, but it does boot at this point00:31
_numbersmaybe after upgrade i need to reinstall nvidia driver00:32
c_smith__numbers, give me a second.00:32
escottMoleMan, and its booting to a complete system with the new boot partition. You could verify by umounting the /boot and removing any files in the /boot folder that was hidden underneath the partition00:32
overcluckerjschall: apt-get remove the package, apt-get autoremove, remove the ppa from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ ; apt-get update; apt-get install package00:33
dns53jschall  bring up aptitude, go to the package, down the bottom of each package screen is a list of versions available00:33
bobo37774How to reset dconf settings and recreate  ~/.config/dconf?00:33

dns53 jschall are you using a versison of ppa-purge from the ppa-purge ppa?00:33
c_smith__numbers, ok, try installing "Grandr" then run Grandr when it's done.00:33
jschalldns53: no00:34
c_smith__numbers, just so you know, Grandr is a GTK interface for Xrandr.00:34
_numbersXlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0".00:34
_numbersRandR extension missing00:34
_numbersthats what grandr says00:34
c_smith__numbers, ok, I'm stumped here, give me a second to google this.00:34
jschalldns53: should i be?00:35
ActionParsnipdsnyders: in network manager00:35
_numbersone site says Xinerama and RandR are rivals00:35
_numbersi am using xinerama00:35
ActionParsnipdsnyders: set the interface to DHCP (address only) and you can specify DNS servers manually00:35
escottMoleMan, in that case then you need to boot the livecd (and it might be helpful to have a gui for the next bit). And in the livecd you can take your backups and being the process of migrating to the lvm partitions00:35
mouwho escott00:36

ActionParsnipdsnyders: you mean the IP must be static?00:36
* MoleMan goes CD hunting again00:37
dsnydersActionParsnip, Yes, sorry about that.00:37
c_smith__numbers, if tat's the case. I'd be careful with what you do, conflicting apps have the very real possibility of breaking a system, especially ones that integrate with an important part like X.org.00:37
_numbers"You need to enable the composite extension in your xorg.conf file."00:38
_numbersi have that disabled00:38
_numbersi have 4 monitors00:38
c_smith__numbers, try enabling it then.00:38
ActionParsnipdsnyders: thats fine, you can set both IP and DNS in network manager00:39
_numbersya i'll experiment. it wasn't working before but maybe now that i upgraded. trying bbl00:39
c_smith__numbers, then reboot and see what happens. if anything goes wrong, come back here.00:39

switchtechfederated_life: are you connecting through terminal?00:48
escottMoleMan, (a) you can copy the data to a spare drive then create a new lvm partition to replace the existing / partition and then create a volume and copy the data back00:48
federated_lifeyes terminal00:49
switchtechand its the password req that takes a min to show?00:49
federated_lifeyep, like 5-10 secs00:49
ActionParsnipdsnyders: you can use /etc/network/interfaces   to set the IP, you can then manually populate /etc/resolv.conf    and uninstall network manager if you never want to use wifi easily...00:49
escottMoleMan, or (b) shrink the ext4, create the lvm, create the volume, move the data from the shrunken ext4 to the lvm, remove the ext4, grow the lvm00:49

jmoreira81zew803iffsdf: I'm trying to find good resources on installing hamachi in ubuntu02:16
tarrenceHi, I have Ubuntu running in a virtual machine on my mac and I want to switch the mapping of ctrl and command keys so that both os's match... How would I go about doing this?02:16
zew803iffsdfOk hehe, don't yet konw about hamachi02:16
holsteintarrence: i would set that in virtualbox02:16
ActionParsniptarrence: i'd ask in #vbox too02:16
jmoreira81yea… i saw that… but i need documented....02:16
switchtechdRounse: feur frei02:17
Ho^OhWhat makes me mad is that I get bad kernels to work with:        Like, what the heck?!02:17
tarrenceholstein: ActionParsnip : I'm using VMware Fusion02:17
escotttarrence, running gnome or unity go to keyboard preferences click on layout and then on the layouts tab click on options02:17
ActionParsnipjmoreira81: looks like its windows only. What are you trying to achieve?02:17
holsteintarrence: i would set them in there then.. im not sure where those are in VMware, just Vbox02:17

ActionParsniptarrence: then #vmware02:18
jmoreira81tarrence: tried parallels? the new version rocks compared to wmware02:18
switchtechburnt: had some of the same frustration, finally went to GDM, (crunchbang distro)02:18
tarrencejmoreira81: VMWare works great for me.02:18
canurabushey... could someone please help me understand a couple of things about themes in ubuntu? I'm trying to use this Gnome 3 theme: http://tiheum.deviantart.com/art/Holo-28007698002:18

jmoreira81ActionParsnip: I just need to access my network away from home...02:19
dRounseswitchtech: i am building a home/file server and i have two mobos to pick from, i have a celeron d and an amd athlon ii, i need one for my desktop also, i feel like my processor is struggline (celeron d) when i am using file converters for mp3 and watching youtube, which should i use for my server02:19
ActionParsnipjmoreira81: but to achieve what?02:19
jmoreira81to work remotely02:19
canurabusand it kind of works, but the colors are different... ie, the screenshot has a dark background theme. How do I get those same colors in ubuntu?02:19
ActionParsnipjmoreira81: ok much easier, what apps will you be running?02:19
holsteindRounse: i would go with the quieter one02:19
holsteinjmoreira81: team viewer is pretty easy, and free for personal use02:20
jmoreira81ActionParsnip: I need to access my file server… my files...02:20
switchtechdRounse: old hardware... which is the higher FSB and MHZ for the processor id use for the desktop, make the server a text only version to cut out the overhead... IMHO02:20
holsteinjmoreira81: ssh is how i do that02:20
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience02:20
burntswitchtech, thanks for the help :) ... its anoying, a seen it setup on a friends02:20
jmoreira81ActionParsnip: more importantly mysql database02:20
Zillyhow doth I maketh another user account easily???02:20
ActionParsnipjmoreira81: install openssh-server and you have an SFTP server which you can access your files over the internet securely with02:20
burntbut cannot ask him, out of the country now02:20
switchtechburnt: try compiz?02:20
holsteinZilly: sudo adduser username02:20
jmoreira81holstein: i use ssh too… but for development is not ideal for database access02:20
ActionParsnipjmoreira81:how do you interact with your SQL? Do you use terminal?02:21
switchtechburnt: or kidnap said friend and "acquire" the information...02:21
holsteinjmoreira81: cool... ssh is the tool more prefer.. not sure what you'd rather use... ftp?02:21
urlin2uzilly or user accounts, you can tick admin there if needed.02:21
urlin2uZilly,  ^^02:21
jmoreira81ActionParsnip: Yes but the CMS i'm using to needs to connect to mysql as well…. it's working well at home...02:21
ModFatherHi There i got some wierd problems with my ubuntu 11.10 oneiric , i cant ping my boxes, i can ping it from other network but from the same network i cant see each other,02:21
ZillyI'm using 10.04 and I don't have user accounts02:22
jmoreira81holstein: SSH is out of context here…. i need an app to access a database...02:22
holsteinModFather: did you set static IP's?02:22
zew803iffsdfTo create a new user account: 1. Go to System settings ....... 2. Click on User Accounts ........ 3. Click "Unlock" to type your admin password.  ......... 4. Click the "+" button to add a new user.02:22
switchtechModFather: gateway issues?02:22
ActionParsnipZilly: you have one user account, the one you made when you first created the install...02:22
_MarcusI have lots of Gnome Desktop programs installed, how do I remove them all with one swift command?02:22
ModFatherholstein: yes they got same ip, sometime i ping with success but when i try same ping same ip i got fail02:22
holsteinjmoreira81: pretty sure thats what most helpful folk here would suggest02:22
holsteinModFather: they need to have unique IP's02:22
ModFatherswitchtech: yes seems to be gateway issues, sometimes i can ping sometimes not. how i can figure out ?02:22
ActionParsnipjmoreira81: you can VNC over SSH  for a secure connection02:22
=== Administrator is now known as Guest51838
_Marcus"gnome" isn't installed02:22
ModFatherholstein: they have02:22
jmoreira81holstein: you're not understudying what i need it a VPN for...02:23
jmoreira81ActionParsnip: how would i access mysql over vnc?02:23
holsteinModFather: just working through the obvious... how about boxes that are using DHCP?02:23
switchtechModFather: is it on the same piece of network gear? (one switch / router)?02:23
Zillywhat should I install to get "user accounts"?02:23
holsteinjmoreira81: you are corret02:23
urlin2u_Marcus, so what do you have, and how did you get there and what have you removed so far?02:23
ActionParsnip_Marcus: remove libgnome-desktop-3-2 and it should make the rest fail deps and be marked for removal02:23
holstein!detail | jmoreira8102:23
damo22jmoreira81: you can forward the mysql port over ssh02:23
ModFatherholstein its cloud servers from RackSpace Cloud Services02:23
holstein!details | jmoreira8102:23
ubottujmoreira81: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."02:23
ActionParsnipjmoreira81: however you do it on your desktop now...02:24
ActionParsnip!vnc | jmoreira8102:24
damo22jmoreira81: then connect to it like it was on your own machine02:24
ubottujmoreira81: VNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX02:24
_Marcusurlin2u: I am in CLI, I added the "text" parameter to Grub02:24
dRounseholstein: well both are pretty quiet and the server will be in a closet type room, its hard to explain but i wont hear it, but is celeron d ok for streaming movies and stuff or will it work too hard? the server chassis has four fans so heat wont be a problem02:24
ModFatherswitchtech: yes it is on the same network, same Datacenter, hosted on the same account at cloud servers RackSpaceCloud02:24
jmoreira81ActionParsnip: gotcha..02:24
jmoreira81ActionParsnip: let me read that...02:24
ActionParsnipjmoreira81: if you can find out the command you run to get the app, you can just run the app via terminal and use x forwardig02:25
damo22jmoreira81: you might not need vnc, if you just need to talk to mysql database from over the internet02:25
jmoreira81ActionParsnip: thanks for you help… I have to log off; i'm at a starbucks and they're closing.. be back shortly02:25
holsteinjmoreira81: http://blog.bodhizazen.net/linux/how-to-vpn-using-ssh/ https://wiki.ubuntu.com/VPN maybe02:25
ActionParsnipjmoreira81: the app will run on the server side, but be displayed on your client02:25
switchtechModFather: you hope so anyway... it may be their LAN/WAN setup screwing with you. May want to hit rackspace and query for "cluster" support...02:25
_MarcusActionParsnip: How do I remove all the extra Gnome applications?02:25
_MarcusActionParsnip: Without going through each one02:25
jmoreira81ActionParsnip: I run all my databases from my ubuntu machine02:26
singkongi have install plexydesk and then what next to use ?02:26
ModFatherswitchtech : they will say again that will be problem from my side, how i can check if their LAN/WAN setup screwing with mine boxes? is any way to figure it out?02:26
ActionParsnip_Marcus: yes as it will make the others fail deps02:26
escott_Marcus, you could just remove the xserver and everything that depends on it should go away02:26
_MarcusActionParsnip: So what do I do to just remove them?02:26
dRounse_Marcus: thats hard because some of them have dependencies that might mess with your OS02:26
ActionParsnip_Marcus: sudo apt-get --purge autoremove02:27
_MarcusdRounse: Oh well02:27
_MarcusActionParsnip: It said it didn't remove anything02:28
ActionParsnip_Marcus: then remove more gnome stuffs. If you run:  dpkg -l | grep gnome     you can remove stuff02:29
_MarcusActionParsnip: Can I do something like "sudo apt-get remove | dpkg -l | grep gnome"?02:30
ActionParsnip_Marcus: could try:    sudo apt-get --purge remove `dpkg -l | grep gnome`02:31

krispaulWondering was the metapackage for the ubuntu desktop?02:32
ActionParsnipSimon1245: default is CTRL+ALT+D02:32
jribiceocean: probably dd, cut, or split02:33
jribiceocean: oh, check out "truncate" as well02:34
iceoceanjrib, split should work well i think. thanks02:34
iceoceanis split binary safe?02:34
akSeyaguys, when configuring kernel, what could prevent "Flat Memory" to be shown on menuconfig > Kernel Features > Memory model ?02:34

_MarcusSimon1245: I'm sure ubottu has it but, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KeyboardShortcuts02:36

Simon1245ActionParsnip, _Marcus, Thanks for the links02:37
Simon1245ActionParsnip, by the way this 12.04 is released already or about to come?02:38
_Marcus!shortcuts | Simon124502:38
ubottuSimon1245: Keyboard shortcuts can be set in System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts. If your multimedia keys don't work with that, try the 'keytouch' package, explained at http://keytouch.sourceforge.net/ - See !Keyboard for changing layouts. A list of keyboard shortcuts for Unity is available at http://ubottu.com/y/shortcuts02:38
ActionParsnipSimon1245: look at the version number, then think about the year ;)02:39
ActionParsnipSimon1245: its in Alpha2 now02:39
Simon124511.10 = 2011 - august?02:39
Simon1245So 12.04 = April - 2012?02:39
Simon1245Ah, I see :D Smart way of making it :D02:40
ActionParsnipSimon1245: 11.10 = 20(11) october (10)th month02:40
ActionParsnipSimon1245: makes sense, also easier to know when releases are EOL too02:40
Simon1245opps my bad I said august lol :D02:40
Simon1245Oh and they release a new release every 6th month?02:40
Simon1245I used to use linux for like 2-3 years ago for testing and at that time I heard about it02:41
skilzI have a VERY VERY VERY ANNOYING problem with alsamixer, when I play a different song the volume raises to 100% each time and blasts my ears with headphones02:42
Simon1245By the way what button is "Super" key?02:43
ActionParsnipSimon1245: windows key to you02:43
mkultra_skilz, you need to set your default alsa mixing volume02:43
mkultra_mac key / windows key = "super key"02:43
Simon1245By the way would it be possible to play Windows game on Linux?02:44
mkultra_sometimes yes02:44
Simon1245Is Wine easy to use?02:44
mkultra_wine tricks installs steam for windows really good on linux, its a little slow for portal though02:44
mkultra_depends upon what you would define as easy02:44
mkultra_alt + f2 gnome-terminal02:45
mkultra_wine dozesux.exe02:45
mkultra_for your exe files02:45
_MarcusI don't really see why you would move over from Windows to Ubuntu for gaming purposes.02:45
_MarcusWine is good, but it's not great02:45
ActionParsnipmkultra_: or press CTRL+ALT+T  for easier terminal access02:45
mkultra_then everythings in $HOME/.wine/drive_c02:45
mkultra_ctrl alt t doesnt work for me02:46
mkultra_im in xfce02:46
Simon1245_Marcus, basically it fucked up today badly had virus and shit I removed it or something and the whole computer sort of shut down02:46
ActionParsnipmkultra_: yeah it works there too..02:46
gogetamkultra_: what you trying to get to02:46
mkultra_alt + f2 is distro agnostic02:46
_MarcusSimon1245: When there's a problem like that, install it again :D02:46
mkultra_im explaining wine to people asking if its easy02:46
Simon1245Now too lazy to reinstall Windows again so I was hopin gthat it would work to use every Windows thing on here02:46
urlin2umkultra_, works in xfce for me.02:46
ActionParsnipmkultra_: or install guake and use a shortcut button, like the console in Quake / HalfLife etc02:47
mkultra_might be my keyboard02:47
ActionParsnipSimon1245: I'd look for open equivs02:47
mkultra_yeah i have that bound to f1202:47
gogetaSimon1245: you can try one lof those live cds with a vires scanner and try to clean it out but with todays nasty stuff you probly need to reformat the box02:47
wesselhow should I execute this command? dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/xxx bs=446 count=102:47
mkultra_generic ubuntu NOOBS dont have all that02:47
mkultra_they have alt + f2 gnome-terminal.....02:47
wesselI want the command to operate on my usb stick02:48
mkultra_nautilus should do it02:48
Simon1245gogeta, it's a laptop well, too lazy to do that and I don't even have the real recovery disk so I'm gonna lose all the vaio stuff and shit02:48
mkultra_alt + f2 nautilus02:48
Simon1245ActionParsnip, What's equivs?02:48
crazydiamondwessel: what do you want to do?02:48
mkultra_should be able to dig through its settings to get the drive to show up02:48

Kcharlecan anyone tell me why i dont have permissions to images my www folder when i go to it in the browser?02:49
_MarcusSimon1245: Ah. Most HP laptops(even desktops) come with backup hard drives02:49
Simon1245urlin2u, Not sure honestly, it was on the computer that I could create a recovery disk but I didn't find it until it was like 1 hour left till I broke it.. I mean before breaking it02:49
crazydiamonduse gparted or palimpsest02:49
crazydiamondwessel: use gparted or palimpsest02:50
gogetaSimon1245: yea if you have a backup partation many new machines do un less you removed it you can restore from there02:50
urlin2uSimon1245, if you bought it new and got no dvd for reinstall you have a recovery partition.02:50
Simon1245_Marcus, Ah this one had installed you think it's accessable while restarting it?02:50
Simon1245gogeta, How?02:50
wesselWill that remove grub?02:50
gogetaSimon1245: it should be a hotkey at boot it verys on the pc02:51
Simon1245urlin2u, Ah, that's right I didn't get a dvd with it02:51
_schism_question gentlemen and ladies.  I was goofing around in 10.04 and installed wicd and of course the normal network thing went bye bye.  if I uninstall wicd will the normal thing come back?02:51
crazydiamondwessel: full format will. you can delete all partitions. but notice that if you want to keep data you will need to copy it somewhere (all data will be deleted)02:51
hiexpohow can i detect what wireless driver i am currently using02:52
urlin2uSimon1245, you can probably recover it from a f8 prompt, but it will overwrite the main partition.02:52
Simon1245Uhm let me come on my other laptop while I restart this one, see you soon02:52
_MarcusSimon1245: What?02:52
Kcharlecan anyone tell me why i dont have permissions to images my www folder when i go to it in the browser?02:52

urlin2udamo22, you don't have to zero the drive03:08

escottsoulf_, unlike gconf it seems that options dont exist until they are changed. in gconf you always had the schema to fall back on but in dconf you dont. but often you can just set the gconf key and it seems to work05:44
bobenhausanyone know how to reset unity ?05:47
superdave321how do I make a source trusted? there are some updates that my computer just won't download...05:47
urlin2usuperdave321, you geting key missing or not good in the terminal.05:51
superdave321actually using the update gui, but i do have a key missing in a different repo...05:52
urlin2usuperdave321, a terminal update will tell you run this if you get a key problem. sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys "key here"05:55
=== dan__ is now known as Guest20006
soulf_escott, what do you mean "just set the gconf key"? How would I do that?05:56
superdave321where do I get the "key here" part?05:56
urlin2ubobosomfan, unity --reset or unity --replace I forget which one05:57
urlin2ubobosomfan, no sudo05:57

urlin2usuperdave321, run a update in the terminal use the key mentioned in the key here05:58
superdave321I'm guessing apt-get update?05:59
urlin2usuperdave321, yeah sudo apt-get update don't do this in root05:59
superdave321riff you have to use a '|' inbetween command and username...05:59
superdave321urlin2u isn't that what sudo does...06:00
urlin2usuperdave321, yeah but some people like to just access root to do stuff when not needed, just a precautionary.06:00
superdave321ahh. ok. gotcha. will do.06:01
urlin2usuperdave321, the apt-get update just triggered a red flag.06:01
urlin2usuperdave321, like I said we get people on here running root all the time we never know. :)06:02
escottsoulf_, i would (a) try using gconf-editor it might still work. if it doesnt then use dconf-editor but create the key and directory based on what you see in gconf-editor schemas (alternately use gsettings cli to create and set the value)06:02
superdave321urlin2u: gotcha06:02

urlin2ubobenhaus, you did not know the unity was aplug in in compiz you could of fixed that desktop broken with a reset there.06:16

sun_devilI have a directory and need to change the owner back to root  with chown and I also need to use chown for permissions06:30
jschallis there an ubuntu tablet available yet?06:31
urlin2ujschall, http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/01/ubuntu-tablet-to-compete-with-android-ios/06:33
sun_devila chown permission of 77006:34
escottsun_devil, chown doesnt change permission bits it changes ownership. chmod changes the permission bits06:35
sun_devilOk, how would you change owner back to root with chown06:36
escott!man | sun_devil06:36
ubottusun_devil: 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/06:36
escottsun_devil, chown [OPTION]... [OWNER][:[GROUP]] FILE..06:37
sun_devilI tried chown root:account root06:38
escottsun_devil, why are you trying to change the group to "account" and is the file really named "root"06:38
phibxrsun_devil, what are you trying to change the ownership of?06:38
sun_devilmy group is called account but I by mistake changed the owner06:39
escottsun_devil, it would be chown root filename or chown root:root filename or chown root:someothergroup filename06:39
sun_devilwhat does the blue color mean, directory?06:43
ztag100Could anyone let me know why this happens?06:43
Dr_willistry a ls -l and see. the colors can differ depending on the terminal app.06:43
Dr_willisztag100:  you could at least aummarize the problem06:44
ztag100Dr_willis, I mean the background in conky06:44
ztag100it is supposed to be transparent06:44
ztag100but instead, it's that06:45
Dr_willisas for conky -  try restarting it. with some differnt config settings. try some example config files also.06:45
sun_devilwill not let me change the root06:45
Dr_willisYour terminal has a differnt wallpaper then your desktop?06:46
escottsun_devil, unprivileged users cant just chown files to root06:46
sun_devilI am root, want to change the owner back to root06:47
Dr_willissun_devil:  so what command are you using exactly?06:47
sun_devilSorry I did it06:47
sun_devildid a chown root:account acctsrecv06:48
escottsun_devil, and what error message did it give you06:49
sun_devilnone, the root is owner, account is group and not sure what acctsrecv is but did a ls -l and it looks good06:50
Dr_willisnot sure wat acctrecv is? thats the file you are working on...06:51
Dr_willisare we doing some homework exersize?06:51
sun_deviltrying to understand the file system and its like trying to learn a foreign language06:52
escott!permissions | sun_devil06:52
ubottusun_devil: An explanation of what file permissions are and how they can be manipulated can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions06:52
Dr_willisI found it rather straight forward compared to how windows does permssions.06:52
sun_devilNever had to use permissions on windows06:52
Dr_willisTheres some more advanced things you can do with linux fs's that i rarely touch. (ACL's and so forth) but the basics are rather straight forward06:52
Dr_willisYou are lucky then.06:52
Dr_willisHaving to right with them getting set wrong all the time on win706:53
escottDr_willis, windows has permissions? unless you mean that dialog with 14 tabs where you end up selecting everything because otherwise nothing works06:53
sun_devilVMware is a great idea to trying this stuff out on06:53
Dr_willisescott:  and you discover a dozen users that seem tobe 100 didgit clsid #'s06:53
sun_devilIn windows it the configurations that nobody touches06:54
Dr_willisive had to touch them due to windows screwing them up.06:55
Fudgehi i am trying to mount an hfs partition on an osx drive, /dev only lists sdc but fdisk -l lists sdc1 and an empty sdc2, how can i mount it if dev doesnt show sdc106:55
escottDr_willis, my favorite was when the auditing group at our bank got pissed because the traders had rw access to the risk control stuff so we sent a very carefully filled out form to the filesystem specialist saying exactly how the permissions needed to be, waited for them to say it was done, and then a week later i find that the traders still have access06:55
Dr_willisI rarely ever need to mess with groups in linux really...06:55
escottFudge, fyi you won't be able to get rw without disabling journaling on hfs+06:56
Dr_willissmall home lans... gotta love them06:56
sun_devilWell just something you should know and you only use it once06:56
Fudgeescott  i have read that but im trying to mount it to fix something06:56
skilzHow can I change the direction windows minimize, I want them to go up not down since I have my toolbar up the top of my screen06:57
escottso the thing that is weird in your description is the use of fdisk. shouldn't a mac partition be on a gpt disk. in which case why are you seeing anything with fdisk?06:57
Fudgefdisk does say its gpt yes06:57
sixplewhy am i getting this error message: You don't have the right permissions to extract archives in the folder "file:///media/GAMES/DS%20Games"06:57
Dr_willisskilz:  you could check the ccsm tools settings. but be carefull with that tool.06:58
escottsixple, because you dont have write permissions on /media/Games/DS Games06:58
Fudgeescott  the drive was installed on another computer and put into this box after a while, so osx isnt loading i guess hardware cahnges, but i cant read the errors or try to fix it when booting into osx so thought i may be able to do something if i mount it, guess not06:58
sixplebut why06:58
Dr_willissimplexio:  what filesystem is that  Games disk using? this is a usb? a hard drive?06:59
escottsixple, hard to say without more details. what kind of file system is /media/GAMES06:59
sixpleits a micro SD card06:59
escottFudge, is this an old version of linux that doesnt understand gpt? is it listed in /proc/partitions07:00
cadzhow do i get in to the control panel07:00
escottsixple, does the microsd or its adapter have a read only toggle? (its a physical switch) and is it set to rw?07:00
Dr_willisTop right gear/thing icon has menu to get to some settings.07:00
sixpleits got 'lock' but its not toggled to the 'lock' position07:01
Dr_willisive seen where removeable vfat/ntfs get mounted in such a way that  the user needs root access to get to them fully. You can run the 'ntfs-config' tool to tweak the system so all users have full rights to them07:02
Dr_willisplug it in., see if root can write to it from the terminal, check 'mount' output to see what its mounted options are.07:02
Dr_willisYou could also just copy the files to your home, and extract them there. :)07:03

Dr_williscadz:  Never noticed.. I set it to never hide. I think thats going to be the default in the next release also.07:13
Dr_willisskilz:  You may want to use somthing other then the rather minimal fluxbox then.07:14
Dr_willistheres dozens of other window managers out there.   I dont play with them all much any more.07:15

Chipzzzhotring: have you tried cairo-dock?08:43
hotringno Chipzzz i have not tried cairo dock I wanted something like windows 7 taskbar so I went for dockbarx08:44
yao_ziyuanhow do i see which processes are using the hard disk most heavily now?08:45
yao_ziyuani'm hearing intensive hard disk activity08:45
mikem94590What does updating to kernel 3.2.5 on Oneiric entail?08:45
kalimojowhat log do incorrect logins go to ?08:45
cfhowlettyao_ziyuan: top08:45
ChipzzzIt's up to you but i just watched a video about dockbarx and cairo seems nicer looking and more flexible... but to each is own :-)08:46
auronandacemikem94590: losing support here08:46
yao_ziyuancfhowlett: i only see memory in 'top'08:46
mikem94590I've had to run Windows for like a month now after my old laptop died08:46
hotringChipzzz, ohh but I love dockbarx, can you tell me how do I add it to startup?08:46
pnormanyao_ziyuan: iotop is what I use. not sure if it's installed by default08:46
mikem94590Bought this new one and got stuck with power regression issues08:46
mikem94590Heard that kernel 3.2.5 fixed that08:47
auronandace!kernel | mikem9459008:47
ubottumikem94590: The core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)08:47
Chipzzzhotring: it doesn't show up in 'startup programs'?08:47
yao_ziyuanpnorman: thx08:48
mikem94590Is 3.2.5 in repos?08:48
pnormanAPT is telling me that "The following packages have been kept back", how do I upgrade those packages08:48
coolmachine freezes for couple seconds & then works & then again freezes. this cycle goes on on a infinite lopp. In logs, I get "device reported invalid sector 0". logs: https://gist.github.com/1807351  what is wrong?08:49
Yabdenif packages are being kept back, check your sources.list for pinning08:49
Yabdenor rather, your preferences file08:49
pnormanYabden: they're the linux-server, linux-headers-server and linux-image-server packages08:50
auronandacemikem94590: no, if there is a ppa of it you could use that (ppas are also not supported here)08:50
mikem94590I appreciate the insight08:50
mikem94590Thanks for your time :)08:50
auronandacemikem94590: no worries :)08:51
cfhowletthotring: also see AWN dock08:51
mikem94590Perhaps I'll just wait for 12.0408:51
pnormanYabden: Where would the preferences file be?08:51
Jordan_Upnorman: Normally this shouldn't happen unless you're using ppas or other third party repositories (or a development version of Ubuntu).08:52
mikem94590Looks like that fixes my problem :)08:53
hotringChipzzz I think I found the executable file for dockbarx in /usr/bin folder and I ran it, the taskbar works, can you now tell me how do I add it to startup list?08:53
pnormanJordan_U: linux-headers-server linux-image-server linux-server aren't from any of the PPAs I use, and I'm just running 11.10 server, nothing special08:53
Jordan_Upnorman: It's often not the packages from the ppa which are held back, but rather conflics in ppa packages cause non-ppa packes not to be upgradable.08:54
Chipzzzhotring: in a terminal type, "gnome-session-properties"08:54
pnormanHow would I identify the conflicts?08:54
hotringwell, awn looks promising cfhowlett, but can you tell me how to I add dockbarx to startup? i have never added any program to startup.08:54
Chipzzzhotring: i just told you above08:55
Jordan_Upnorman: Try running "sudo apt-get install linux-image-server" to see why that particular packages is being held back. It may be that all you need to do is run "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" though, which may propose to remove some packages (you'll need to decide if they are packages you care about).08:55
Chipzzzhotring: then check dockbarx08:55
=== Resistance is now known as EvilResistance
pnormanAh, dist-upgrade is what I was thinking of08:56
hotringdockbarx is not there, should I select it from /usr/bin?08:56
Chipzzzhotring: yes. click "Add" and make a launcher for it08:57
hotringok I added it, now since I use natty, can I replace the panel with this dockbarx?08:57
Chipzzzhotring: i don't think so, but you can auto-hide the panel08:58
robin0800hotring: usr/share/applications perhaps08:58
hotringChipzzz can you tell me how to auto-hide this panel?08:59
hotringoh i got it I saw the auto hide option09:00
Chipzzzhotring: :-)09:01
hotringChipzzz, can you suggest some nice screenlets?09:01
ChipzzzI like the weather and system monitor applets09:01
Chipzzzhotring: also the wifi signal strength is sometimes useful for me09:02
hotringhey can you send me the link to system monitor applet? I would love to try it Chipzzz09:02

hotringChipzzz, can you modify any screenlet?09:04
hotringor add or delete its features?09:05
=== max is now known as Guest43280
ejvwhat's a screenlet09:06
Chipzzzhotring: the system monitor i'm using is system load indicator... if it isn't in the available applets, software center should have it09:06
Chipzzzhotring: yes, you can modify applets... most are written in python and are easily accessible09:06
hcuongvnHi all. I need some helps to fix error with "smplayer" software!09:06
sdahi all, I have an Broadcom Corporation BCM43225 802.11b/g/n (rev 01) with kernel firmware, it search only N wireless it seems unable to find my wifi G AP09:06
hotringok do you know how to create a screenlet? just asking09:07
rdjmhghhi i have noticed an issue with amavisd in 12.0409:08
Chipzzzhotring: i've modified several but never written one from scratch. I suppose i could if i had to, why?09:08

sdaworse than i though, somehow i cannot find ANY wireless connection with iwlist but from gnome it found only N09:10
hotringChipzzz, I used to love rainmeter in windows and modified a lot of skins in rainmeter so I was just asking whether modifying screenlets is as easy as modifying rainmeter skins09:10
Chipzzzhotring: rainmeter looks really nice but i don't know much about its internals... applets are usually only a few hundred lines of python and fairly easy to modify, though, given a little thought09:13
WaltherIirc, rainmeter is a config madness09:14
hotringohh, incase you have screenlets, can I see their snapshots plz?09:14
nightcrowcan someone please tell me how i can add a user to use a specific application that can only be run as root09:15
nightcrowi know it requires modifying the passwd, but im not sure how09:15

PeoplesAdvocateIs this a good place to ask a simple question about ubuntu servers?09:19
ejvnothing, i just find the command peculiar09:19
EvilResistancePeoplesAdvocate, yes, you can do that here09:19
EvilResistanceejv, indeed09:19
ejvi just had to reboot my ubuntu server, there goes my 5 week uptime, i hate you ubuntu! (no, not really)09:20
HeavyMetalhi i made a RAM disk but when i am finished with it how to i flush it to release the RAM?09:20
Chipzzzhotring: here's a video that shows it off nicely (not mine, specifically, but a generic install): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbUynt1iJic09:20
oCeanejv: on some other networks, IRC is used for filesharing between users. The list command shows available content there09:20
ejvoCean: sounds... arcane.09:21
PeoplesAdvocateOk thanks EvilResistance: I have been looking around for best practices about DocumentRoot on Apache or Nginx. I seem to see people recommend to leave it at /srv/www/ and others in your home directory! What is the recommend setup?09:21
ejvarcane/archaic :-)09:21
^Blackflowers^Hi, i'm looking into ubuntu to install on my other computer. I am looking to use it mainly to serve files and host some web sites could I just use ubuntu and not ubuntu-server?09:22
Chipzzzhotring: bear in mind that it's highly configurable and can run in quite a few different configurations09:22
EvilResistancePeoplesAdvocate, i use /var/www, another admin i know uses /home/webuser/public_html/, it really depends on your setup.  If you want pure default, /var/www/ is a safe bet.09:22
ejv^Blackflowers^: my understanding is that server is more stripped down (no desktop environment for example) than the normal desktop ubuntu iso09:22
hotringohhhhh its niceeee09:23
Chipzzzhotring: :-)09:23
oCean^Blackflowers^: sure, because you can install any available software (in the repositories) on both the -server and -desktop editions09:23
Chipzzzhotring: highly recommended09:23
ejv^Blackflowers^: so you may, in fact, *prefer* ubuntu server, from a security standpoint no less09:23
ejv^Blackflowers^: installation from server will be a tad bit different than the desktop version. the ubuntu server install can only be described as ... DOS-ish, for lack of a better adjective. Of course you can, at a later time, choose to install a desktop environment like KDE, Gnome, etc.09:25
nightcrowguys.. can someone please help me09:26
nightcrowcan someone please tell me how i can add a user to use a specific application that can only be run as root09:26
PeoplesAdvocateEvilResistance, I don't mind leaving it on default since I am the only one on my VPS at this time. But if i get a few friends wanting to host their own I would rather have them jailed to their home directories. If i set it up for the DocumentRoot to be at home directories in a folder (public_html) wont i have a problem with the webserver writing to the directories. (ex. wordpress creating a file)09:26
nightcrowi have added her to /etc/group09:26
nightcrowlike this:apt-mirror:x:133:ayeletw09:27
nightcrowbut i dont think it is enough09:27
nightcrowcan someone please help09:27
ejvnightcrow: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions09:27
EvilResistancePeoplesAdvocate, chown the folder so www-data group (or whatever group your webserver runs as, probably www-data) has access, it shouldnt be a problem, if i remember right.09:28
nightcrowthank you ejv ill have a read through that09:28
oCeannightcrow: you can temporarily elevate privileges by using 'sudo', this can also be used to delegate certain privileges to a specifc user09:28
oCean!sudo | nightcrow09:28
ubottunightcrow: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo09:28
ejvit mentions sudo in the file permissions guide, fyi09:29
ejvhe just needs to read it heh09:29
nightcrowoCean: i know about sudo, but i dont want to give her that kind of power09:29
nightcrowshe isnt a sudoer09:29
oCeanejv, nightcrow  file permissions won't help you09:29
astroboy81Guys, help me. I can't change all value on dconf-editor. Using 11.1009:29
nightcrowi just want her to be able to use apt-mirror as she likes09:29
oCeannightcrow: the proper way is to use sudo for that09:29
^Blackflowers^ejv ah, well as long as it works i'm for trying. gui is a little important to me, the sites i'm hosting don't get much traffic i use them for practice.09:29
nightcrowoCean: why?09:29
PeoplesAdvocateok thanks EvilResistance, gonna go configure it in the home directory then.  :D09:29
nightcrowoCean: but if i give her sudo, then she can do whatever she wants09:29
oCeannightcrow: you don't need to give her access to all commands, just configure sudo so that she can execute the command you want09:30
oCeannightcrow: no09:30
ejvi won't pretend to understand wth he's doing, but it sounds like a permissions issue heh09:30
nightcrowoCean: how can i do that?09:30
nightcrowejv: i want to give a specific user the ability to use apt-mirror09:30
oCeannightcrow: read the sudo documentation - you can give access to one single command09:30
nightcrowejv: without giving her sudo09:30
nightcrowok, oCean ill check it out09:30

hotringi have heard this htop before i dont seem to remember Chipzzz can you refresh me a bit09:35
nightcrowoCean: i did this: ayeletw ALL=/usr/bin/apt-mirror09:35

nightcrowahh, ok09:36
Chipzzzhotring: "sudo apt-get install htop" gets it for you09:36
hotringohh yes Chipzzz similar to sensors i guess09:36
nightcrowejv: ill try that09:36
oCeannightcrow: be careful when editing sudoers file, always use visudo command09:36
nightcrowwhy cant I use pico?09:37
ejvi use nano personally, im just very careful09:37
oCeanejv: it's not a matter of trial-and-error09:37
ejvbecause you can lock yourself out of root privelege if you botch the file badly09:37
hotringthanks Chipzzz09:37
oCeanejv: visudo uses nano too09:37
oCean(if that is your default editor)09:37
nightcrowoCean: would this worrk?09:37
nightcrowALL=(ALL) /usr/bin/apt-mirror *09:37
Chipzzzhotring: is isn't eyecandy like sensors, but it's very useful when you have system issues to troubleshoot... glad i could help :-)09:38
Jordan_Unightcrow: visudo actually uses nano by default on Ubuntu. The name is a bit misleading, it's not an editor so much as a tool for making editing of /etc/sudoers safer, using the preffered editor on the system.09:38
nightcrowi see09:38
nightcrowthank you Jordan_U09:38
Jordan_Unightcrow: You're welcome.09:38
nightcrowoCean: Jordan_U would ejv's command work?09:38

SerythDo I put an irssi config file in .irssi?09:54
oCeannightcrow: the actual command has to be started with 'sudo'..  so  sudo apt-mirror  for example09:54
Dr_willispnorman:  You have done a memtest on the system? Its a nasty crash that locks up the system that badly.09:54
ejvSeryth: when you initialize irssi, it will automagically create an ~/.irssi/config file09:54
Serythejv: Okay, cool. I've not used irssi for a long time, and I just found a config that looks pretty nice09:55
oCeannightcrow: anyway, ejv's examples are close, so I'll paste you my example: http://paste.ubuntu.com/838828/  (I added the first and third definition)09:55

nightcrowoCean: checking09:55
pnormanDr_willis: Any way to run a memtest without heading over to the machine?09:56

MrMist1What's the best way of running "cron-like" tasks in ubuntu? I know how to set up Cron, but it doesn't seem like it's being used bu default by the system10:29
zeozanand i want to install gnome 3.3.5 ?10:29
llutzMrMist1: it is used by default10:29
MrMist1llutz: so how come crontab -l doesn't reveal anything when running as root?10:30
llutzMrMist1: that what's /etc/crontab for10:30
zeozanno one can help me ?10:30
ikoniazeozan: is there a package for gnome 3.3.5 ?10:30
zeozanyeah i think10:30
ikoniazeozan: where is it ?10:30
zeozanok i will get it wait10:30
MrMist1llutz: Hmm... i thought I was supposed to run crontab -e to edit crontab?10:31
aleenai just wanted to ask but still searching for solution #)10:31
llutzMrMist1: since root-account is disabled in *buntu, it makes no sense10:31
zeozanthis is gnome 3.3.510:31
llutzMrMist1: as user, "crontab -e" works fine10:31
ikoniazeozan: that is a tar file - not a package10:31
MrMist1llutz: It's not disabled?? sudo su root10:31
ChipzzzMrMist1: use the crontab commands to create the jobs you want and /etc/crontab should be created10:31
ikoniazeozan: you need an ubuntu (deb) package10:31
zeozanok what can i do ?10:32
llutzMrMist1: no recommended and not supported here10:32
llutzMrMist1: if you need a root-shell, use "sudo -i"10:32
ikoniazeozan: wait for the distribution to offer an upgrade package10:32
rymate1234llutz: another way to get a root shell is sudo bah10:34
rymate1234*sudo bash10:34
llutzrymate1234: there are million ways to get a root shell, sudo -i   is the recommended one at *buntu10:34
llutz!wfm | rymate123410:34
ubotturymate1234: Common Sense: Just because you can, does not mean you should (and especially recommend to others). Think before you do. "Works for me" does not mean it is ok. The latest version of everything is not always useful if you aim for stability. Please see http://geekosophical.net/random/worksforme/10:34
MrMist1llutz: sudo -i? Never used that one... care to explain the difference?10:36
llutzMrMist1: read "man sudo"10:37
rymate1234gives the same result10:37
rymate1234but sudo bash keeps you in the directory you were in10:37
llutzMrMist1: it just makes sure you get a proper env similar to a root-login shell10:37
popeyrymate1234: sudo -s  # is the way to do that ☺10:37
ChipzzzMrMist1: there is no 'root' user in ubuntu and sudo -i compensates for the differences between ubuntu & the more standard configuration10:37

slackin_A question of opinion: When compiling a kernel for a static machine setup, nothing will ever change, is it better to make drivers n such modules or built in? Are there other advantages over one another other than size?12:14

Chipzzzastroboy81: it's a very stubborn problem, i have to give it that ;-)12:15
dr--willissudo fdisk -l | pastebinit       should work12:15

dr--willisi recall it workibg for me in the past12:16

johnson19Hi, just installed 10.11 on a GM33 integrated box. Display shows up as unknown. Was stuck in 1024 x 786 resolution. Used xrandr to add new mode for 1280 x 1024. Resolution changes fine, but I have black bars down the side of my screen that I can't get rid of, even using the monitor settings. Any ideas?12:18
MonkeyDustlucidmadman  or open a new tab in terminal, so you can switch12:18
llutzdamo22:  pipes work with sudo , echo blah > foo    won't12:18
lucidmadmanso the syntax is: sudo su fdisk -l?12:18
MonkeyDustsudo fdisk -l12:18
dr--willisdont use sudo su. ;)12:18
damo22lucidmadman: sudo fdisk -l | pastebinit12:18
lucidmadmanwhat's the char between the fdisk command and pastebinit?12:20
llutzlucidmadman: a pipe |12:21
Chipzzzlucidmadman: (shifted backslash)12:21
dr--willislinux lets you use all your jeys...12:21
damo22the pipe is the most useful character in linux12:22
kalimojothere is no command called pastebinit12:22
lucidmadmanyou guys rock12:22
dr--willisso.. install it.12:22

damo22lucidmadman: could use fdisk or dd12:31
lucidmadmandamo22 I tried deleteing the table and writing a new one but it told me that it failed as the device is busy12:34
astroboy81Chipzzz: maybe if I can any value on dconf-editor then changing theme or icon on other app like ubuntu-tweak, gnome-tweak-tool won't be a problem too12:34
Chipzzzastroboy81: did you see the earlier message about "file types editor"?12:35

kalimojowhen i run fdisk -l i get "Disk /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 doesn't contain a valid partition table"12:50
uszaits not easy to ask it, really, i just ended up with kernel panic12:50
ikoniakalimojo: 1.) you need to use sudo 2.) its an encypted device12:50
NoetGoedhow to get virtual box with ubuntu full screen. I get full screen. but the size of ubuntu  window is the same. only change is the black frame that (indeed) fills the full screen. but that can't be the concept right?12:50
ikoniausza: you need to figure out how to ask it12:50
kalimojoi did use sudo12:50
uszaikonia, here is what i ended up with http://ovrload.ru/temp/img_1346_4ba849b8c47c82b25fc31a9728d6c729.jpg12:51
ikoniakalimojo: then when you say what you did, you need to say "I did sudo fdisk -l" not "I did disk -l"12:51

NoetGoeddid anybody understand my question? should I repeat it?12:52
kalimojoikonia : ok12:52
ikoniausza: the "unsupported optional features" is not a good message12:52
uszai know that12:52

uszahow u figured that out?12:53
NoetGoedMonkeyDust thx for the tipp will try.12:53
ikoniausza: by reading what is on the screen - it's hard to be certain without proper information, but that is how it reads to me12:53
NoetGoedah working now. seems I had to restart virtualbox for whatever reasons.12:54
NoetGoedMonkeyDust so you say you don't even have the guest additions?12:54

When I try the same in a command prompt I get 5 lines saying password incorrect and max number of tries exceeded. Logging into recovery mode works so I have a root prompt. Any ideas?14:13
aciculascanuks: if you have a usb stick you can create an ubuntu boot stick using unetbootin. if you reboot into the recovery mode you should be able to install that and use the tool to make a bootable usb disk14:13
theadminonasis: Should be obvious -- download the ISO, burn it, boot the CD and then run the installer14:13
dob_llutz: So the value -/+ buffers/cache is the real value? That sounds correct: free 1439614:13

ActionParsniptheadmin: why is pidgin 'gross'?15:12
monohedronPidgin is for users15:12
fellayaboytheadmin thanks that did it thank u so much15:12
monohedronits playful and not to the point15:12
fellayaboywhat is dhclient15:13
theadminActionParsnip: I don't think Pidgin has the "ignore" function. Pidgin can't sanely communicate with nickserv automatically either I think (not so sure on that one)...15:13
monohedroni prefer command line clients or xchat15:13
ActionParsniptheadmin: wrong, it does have ignore15:13
theadminfellayaboy: dhclient is a somewhat old alternative to dhcpcd. It gets you an IP address from your DHCP servers15:13
ActionParsniptheadmin: I ignore chanserv and nickserv after a new install15:13
fellayaboyooh ok15:13
deskduckActionParsnip, there is only DockbarX Preference file in /usr/share/applications but the executable is in /usr/bin  can you tell me how to make my own file?15:13
ActionParsnipmonohedron: it sends and receives text from the irc server. I've been using it for 12 years now (I used it when it was gaim)15:14
fellayaboytheadmin thanks for telling me...so what does network manager essentially do..cuz i thought without that u couldnt get nothing15:14
kraehemoin, how to disable the spdif soundcard 0, if both cards are snd-hda-intel?15:14
ActionParsnipdeskduck: copy one of the desktop files probably already in there and change the Exec= line to whatever you run15:15
theadminfellayaboy: NetworkManager establishes connections via a graphical interface and the DBus system messagebus. Quite an annoying thing to have actually.15:15
theadminfellayaboy: For me, at least.15:15
zauguys, so any hint on how to have Wubi recognize Ubuntu Business Desktop Remix, please?15:15
fellayaboyok why is that and do u use an alternative besides network manager15:16
monohedronActionParsnip, I dislike it the higher the version number gets :)15:16
fellayaboythe DBus i mean15:16
theadminfellayaboy: Try wicd, it's a nice and lightweight network manager replacement15:16
ActionParsnipmonohedron: never had an issue with it, it does what IRC is made to do, so I fail to see where the issue is15:16
fellayaboythanks...im having issues with network manager so maybe this might help15:16
theadminfellayaboy: Remove networkmanager first though15:17
kraeheor asked the other way round - is it possible for ubuntu to ignore sound card 0 and use sound card 1 for everything?15:17
ActionParsniptheadmin: so, what else do I need in an IRC client exactly?15:17
fellayaboyok..do u know off the top of your head if wicd supports openvpn in its interface15:17

pushpoptheadmin, no nvidia 9800gtx16:06
theadminpushpop: Ah, hm, okay16:06
mneptokpushpop: try the nvidia drivers provided in official repos, or the nouveau driver.16:06
auronandacepushpop: no such thing as stock PPA16:06
pushpopmneptok, I tried the drives in the official repos.  I had the same problem16:07
pushpopthats why I tried the newest which was in the PPA I added16:07
mneptokpushpop: see if the open source nouveau driver exhibits the same problems16:07

mneptoktheadmin: "we?"16:16

freeroute_Marcus: just watch out that once installed, the software is configured for your hardware, so if you take it and use it on an AMD CPU while it's configured for an Intel one, it might not work16:18
ActionParsnipTaneb: try:    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa; sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-iquik/alsa; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade; killall pulseaudio; rm -r ~/.pulse*16:18

del_actionparsnip:  so now i'm at the ubuntu box, and i'm in the grub.d directory...16:18
yusufalibozhi, I'm installing ubuntu 11.10 via using Windows 7. Ubuntu 11.04 is not supported to my wi-fi card. is 10.10 support?16:18
=== dominus is now known as rikut
ActionParsnipdel_: sudo mv /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober /etc/grub.d/09_os-prober; sudo update-grub           you can run it from any directory16:19
superdave321what is the process of getting ubuntu on a usb drive to boot on a mac?16:19
freeroute_Marcus: also, USB flash drives have lower read/write speeds than traditional HDD's, and in effect, traditional HDD's have far lower read/write speeds than SSD's.16:19
aciculayusufaliboz: if its not supported by 11.04 then it wont be in 10.10 either. How do you know it is unsupported? or is it just not working for you atm16:19
del_my os-prober is named 10_os-prober16:19
_Marcusfreeroute: How much slower?16:19
ActionParsnipsuperdave321: use unetbootin with an md5 tested ISO16:19
ActionParsnipdel_: change the 10 for 9016:19
superdave321ActionParsnip: gonna need some explination...16:20
freeroute_Marcus: depends, 7200rpm drives are usually around 50mb/s write16:20
scanuksacicula: how can i make lubuntu 11.10 faster by disabling stuff or change etc .. ?16:20
del_actionparsnip:  why 10 to 90?  don't i want os-prober to be earlier for windows 7 to be default?16:20
TanebActionParsnip, can't hear anything now16:20
aciculascanuks: you have an atom netbook with 1GB ram or something?16:20
scanuksacicula: yep intel atom cpu 1.6ghz and 1gb ram16:21
_Marcusfreeroute: How do I see how fast my USB writes? It's 2.016:21
aciculascanuks: uhm, lubuntu is a good start. do not install software that adds extra systeam deamons like databases and webservers. You could try and use Chrome for browsing, should be a bit easier on memory consumption16:22
TanebOoh, sound!16:22
freeroute_Marcus: usually the ideal speed of USB 2.0 is 480mbit/s duplex, meaning that you would have around 30mb/s read/write16:22
aciculachrome or chromium even, firefox is a bit of a hog16:22
_Marcusfreeroute: So not much of a difference?16:23
ActionParsnipdel_: so it moves the ubuntu kernels to the bottom, this will make windows the top16:23
scanuksacicula: i already have chromium , whats the difference between chrome and chromium in ubuntu16:23
freeroute_Marcus: you could try dd'ing something to the drive and back, are you familiar with the dd command?16:23
scanuksacicula: its not the same ?16:23
aciculascanuks: you can check your memory use by typing free -m in a console16:23
ActionParsnipTaneb: yes, you killed the sound process, so obviously yo will get no sound16:23
_Marcusfreeroute: Nope16:23
ActionParsnipTaneb: your system isnt as fast as you may think it is16:24
TanebActionParsnip, Youtube works now16:24
del_actionparsnip:  sorry, i'm trying to understand - aren't the windows entries contained in os-prober?  if i rename that 90, it'll be at the bottom...16:24
TanebActionParsnip, mic... still not working?16:24
aciculascanuks: its mostly the same, Chrome is the browser as released by google, chromium is the browser built from the open source portions of chrome.16:24
scanuksacicula: oh i see16:24
f0gn0l0hi all, when i plug my usb bluetooth adapter this error popups:Failed to set bluetooth power The error reported is: The name org.bluez was not provided by any .service files . On windows, the adaper works. Can someone help me please?16:24
ActionParsnipdel_: you are getting the idea, if you shove osprober to th bottom it should be ok16:25
aciculascanuks: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/wiki/ChromiumBrowserVsGoogleChrome16:25
TanebSkype seems to have crashed16:25
xanguaacicula: scanuks more like chrome is based on chomium with is 100% free/libre16:25
del_actionparsnip:  but i want windows 7 to be the default...16:25
freeroute_Marcus: it's basically a very early and rudimentary tool to copy files from place to place, see http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/1320 and man dd for example16:25
del_actionparsnip:  so, wouldn't i want to make it like 01_os-prober?16:25
freeroute_Marcus: basic usage is like this: dd if=<location of input file> of=<location of output file>16:26
_Marcusfreeroute: OH! I've used it before for making a pad file for something.16:26
freeroute_Marcus: without the <> of course, but watch out since dd can easily wipe data on the location if done incorrectly16:26
ActionParsnipdel_: try it, you can always boot back to ubuntu to re-edit, just remember what number it used to be16:26
theadminacicula: Quite the opposite. Chrome is *based* on the Chromium project, and Chromium is quite the original. Chrome (or more correctly, Google Chrome) is what Google made for the binary release. You can see that from the "About Google Chrome" page: http://imm.io/gp1s16:26
jiltdilHi please tell me chanel for virtual box oracle?16:26
TanebActionParsnip, microphone still doesn't work16:27
freeroute_Marcus: for example, dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda wipes your whole drive with zeroes ;)16:27
del_actionparsnip:  well, i'm wondering why it didn't work when i tried doing this through grub-customizer16:27
melvincvGRUB scripts are confusing... why can't I just edit grub.cfg like I used to edit menu.lst?16:27
theadminjiltdil: #vbox16:27
jiltdiltheadmin, Thanks16:27
_Marcusfreeroute: So if I want to fill it with random stuff making it untracable, I just do /dev/urandom?16:28
del_actionparsnip:  the only things i have in the directory above os-prober are 00_header and 05_debian_theme then it's 10_os-prober16:28
ActionParsnipTaneb: try:   echo "options snd-hda-codec-realtek index=-2" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprbe.d/alsa-base.conf16:28
del_so i thought that would have re-ordered it right there.16:28
freeroute_Marcus: in essence yes, but it's faster to do with /dev/zero and it makes sure data is unrecoverable16:28
aciculascanuks: the atom netbooks will also accept 2gb sodimms, they are cheap as chips if you can find one. Should speed things up quite a bit16:28
_Marcusfreeroute: Ah. Isn't /dev/zero just blank spaces?16:28
ActionParsnipdel_: all I know is to shove osprober to the bottom, try it16:28
TanebActionParsnip, tee: /etc/modprbe.d/alsa-base.conf: No such file or directory16:29
ActionParsnipTaneb: /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf           sorry, typo16:29
theadminmelvincv: That's nothing to do with Grub, that's an Ubuntu thing (update-grub will keep overwriting grub.cfg with each kernel upgrade), please look into /etc/default/grub and /etc/grub.d/16:29
f0gn0l0when i plug my usb bluetooth adapter this error popups:Failed to set bluetooth power The error reported is: The name org.bluez was not provided by any .service files . On windows, the adaper works. Can someone help me please?16:29
del_actionparsnip:  ok, going to re-boot and see if it worked.16:30
Taneboptions snd-hda-codec-realtek index=-216:30
ActionParsnipmelvincv: you can but as soon as you run: update-grub   your efforts will be undone16:30
ActionParsnipTaneb: yes but it is also added to the file, reboot to test16:30
TanebOkay, bye!¬16:30
theadminmelvincv: ^ What ActionParsnip said. And that's ran with each kernel/grub update so it's... problematic heh16:31
|Anthony|is there any way to reload a pointer theme without logging out and back in?16:31
scanuksacicula: whats that sodimms ?16:31
aciculascanuks: the type of memory in the netbook16:31
aciculaor physical format even16:32
ActionParsnipmelvincv: if you modify grub properly, not only will boot options be applied properly to each kernel but will be added to all kernels in the future. Much simpler16:32
scanuksacicula: oh so atom cpu is good ?16:32
del_actionparsnip:  back.  it didn't work.  it's like grub ignored all the changes.16:32
ActionParsnipdel_: did you run:  sudo update-grub    after making the change?16:32
del_actionparsnip:  i did.16:32
aciculascanuks: idk, i had an atom 1.6 for awhile and it was dreadfully slow.16:33

scanukstheadmin: i know im just asking16:37

konamtheadmin ActionParsnip thanks guys, i think gdebi is my guy :)16:38
del_actionparsnip:  i'll do it again... let's see.16:38
theadminkonam: gdebi is a CLI+GUI tool for installing individual deb packages16:38
ActionParsnipdel_: it will, until you run:   sudo update-grub    to apply the changes and generate grub.conf16:38
theadminkonam: Use gdebi-core if you want CLI only16:38
konamtheadmin yeah, i want the graphical one, it used to be the default one16:39
theadminkonam: True, I have no idea why they had to change that16:39
konamfor some reason they decided to overkill it with for individual packages16:39
Guest23888can someone help me with my Ubuntu install?16:39
theadminGuest23888: You should just ask the question16:39
konamGuest23888 what do you need to know16:39
del_actionparsnip:  it seems to be updating menu.lst, not grub.cfg.  how come?16:40
Guest23888okay, I'm about to completely wipe my system and reinstall dual boot windows 7 and ubuntu, is there an order that I should follow?16:40
ActionParsnipdel_: you need to install Grub2, sounds like you upgraded from a release with grub legacy16:40

cola_i switched to fglrx drivers and now my dual monitor wont work16:41
del_actionparsnip:  okay.  so why would sudo update-grub be updating menu.lst instead?16:41
Guest23888okay, and previous installs of Ubuntu have given me problems, mainly complete system locks due to NVIDIA I think, does that problem still persist?16:41
ActionParsnipGuest23888: the default install will want to use 100% space, if you manually partition WIndows and leave space unpartitioned you will not have to resize it later16:41

del_actionparsnip:  what's a pastebin?  i'm literally a newb with this stuff.16:42
Guest23888well, I have two hard drives, one for Ubuntu, one for Windows, should it be pretty simple to allocate one for each install?16:43
ActionParsnipdel_: its a way to show a LOT of text without flooding the channel, you can make one easier with:  sudo apt-get install pastebinit; clear; pastebinit /etc/lsb-release16:43
Gentoo64Guest23888: do you want to choose them from grub, or choose the hdd to boot from on startup16:44
ActionParsnipdel_: pastebinit is a handy pastebin file for CLI, the command will make a URL, what is the URL16:44
ActionParsnipGuest23888: sure, install Ubuntu to the 2nd drive if you wish, or you could have both OSes on one drive and keep all user data on the other16:44
Guest23888I think I'd just like to select the OS before booting up16:44

boba88hi is the ubuntu 11.10 amd64 only for amd processor compatible, and if yes what installer should i use to install 64 bit version on an Intel cpu16:54
ActionParsnipnicofs: you can then reload it with:  sudo modprobe nameofmodule16:54
del_actionparsnip:  the re-install worked!16:54
ActionParsnipboba88: it will work on intel 64bit too16:54
nicofsActionParsnip, let me be more precise - how do i find out, how the driver is called?16:54
ActionParsnipdel_: sweet16:54
kroonrsyusufaliboz: go to the software centre and search for eclipse16:54
xanguaboba88: amd64 is just a generic name for 64bit16:55
nicofsActionParsnip, lsmod?16:55

mibr001i'm trying to create a text file that will run in terminal when clicked changing the current display profile to those saved here /etc/X11/single.conf for only my laptop display, here /etc/X11/ext-left.conf for my laptop display + my external display to the left, and here /etc/X11/ext-left.conf for my laptop display + external diaplay to the right16:55
boba88ActionParsnip: the thing is it does not want to boot from the CD16:55
ActionParsnipnicofs: close, lshw tells you the driver for the specific hardware :)16:55
jjohnsoni an using ubuntu via usb stick from live iso and persistance storage but im wanting to change the desktop manager from unity to something else, is that possible? im not seeing xfce4 or gnome-session-fallback as options in apt-get16:55

del_actionparsnip:  what is the best ubuntu IRC client?  i am using Xchat right now - but i keep typing people's names to respond... would prefer something with cleaner cut, paste, respond... or are there commands in xchat to do that more easily?16:55
nicofsActionParsnip, output is "PCI (sysfs)" that doesn't sound right...16:56

mibr001nvidia xserver settings is horrible16:56
ActionParsnipboba88: doesn't answer my question16:56
ActionParsnip_Marcus: its a text installer, its not supposed to be pretty16:56
ActionParsnip_Marcus: you think you can get a full X server and drivers into 12Mb....16:57
nicofsActionParsnip, ok, found it... ath9k sounds better16:57
_MarcusActionParsnip: The text thing isn't what bothers me, it's really quite nice.16:57
ActionParsnip_Marcus: then which bit is 'horrible' the text installer is all it is..16:57
_MarcusActionParsnip: I keep freezing up at some spots.16:57
boba88ActionParsnip: what should i try? i did not understand too16:57
ActionParsnipnicofs: some wifi chips don't like hibernating, so you need to unload and reload the driver to make it work16:58
del_actionparsnip:  so any opinion on best ubuntu irc client?16:58
ActionParsnipboba88: what happens when you try to boot the CD?16:58

ActionParsnipdel_: np man16:59
mibr001what terminal command will replace the current file /etc/x11/ext-left.conf to /etc/x11/single.conf16:59
boba88ActionParsnip: i mentioned that i tried that above17:00
ActionParsnipboba88: what GPU do you use?17:00
yusufalibozkroonrs:  why sound is bad?17:00
Chipzzzdel_: irssi is one of the more popular irc clients and the favorite of many17:00
nicofsActionParsnip, that would be as in "service networking stop"?17:00
ActionParsnipmibr001: sudo cp  /etc/x11/ext-left.conf /etc/x11/single.conf        will copy  /etc/x11/ext-left.conf to /etc/x11/single.conf17:00
