newbie-bobMailserver question. In /etc/postfix/main.cf I have [relayhost =   smtp.someisp.no] and everything works fine. I have to use this   relayhost since my ISP has closed port 25. My ISP tells me that   if I dont want to use their relayhost I have to configure my   mailserver to use a ssl port like port 465. Then I can remove   the relayhost option. Do anyone know where I do this like which   files to edit and is this possible if I don00:02

VimanIs the use of a Firewall necessary in Ubuntu (like it is in windows xp) or more of an add-on?00:33
cfhowlettViman: "necessary" depends on your POV and paranoia quotient.  *buntu/linux are not CURRENTLY seen as high yield targets by the bad guys00:35

Uluruare there negatives/positives to encrypting the home folder on install (as a new user)?00:36
pragmaticenigmaUluru: Only if you are sharing your machine with other people, or using a laptop that will be out a lot and could easily be stolen00:37
pragmaticenigmaAndrew131: I have a feeling that it's a driver issue at it's core... seems to be out for awhile but I'm not finding any submissions on bug trackers which concerns me00:38
pragmaticenigmaUluru: Positives is that it will keep your stuff private from others should your computer ever be stolen.  It's negatives are if you ever forget your password, you will NEVER get your data back00:39

deli was wondering - is there a way to change what programs are displayed in dash home in unity?00:41
Jimm_trying to install to a 2.5tb but it wont partitoin right ot something, im not sure00:41
chaos_zerohow can i make a directory always have certain permissions even if you add files to it? this is ubuntu server so i need to use terminal.00:42
Gentoo64Jimm_: i think you need to use a gpt partition table00:42
=== braiam_ is now known as braiam
delfor example, it says "browse the web" - and wants me to use firefox.  what if i want to set that to chromium?00:42
cfhowlettGentoo64: due to size?00:42
Gentoo64yea00:42
Jimm_can i do that from the live disk?00:42
Gentoo64i think anything over 1.5 or 2tb needs it00:42
Gentoo64Jimm_: gparted can do it easily00:42
joallardSo basically, solution is... change OS?00:42
elbazei begin to enjoy the spirit of your #ubuntu channel00:42
theunholyWhy am I haveing so much trouble with this bull.00:42
theunholyAll i did was install ssh...and i cant connect to the fing thing00:43
Jimm_so i should try to partition before install, not use the resize option on instal live disk?00:43
Gentoo64Jimm_: to chnage the partition table, itll delete the whole disk00:43
cfhowlettJimm_: that's one way...00:43
Jimm_thats fine, the disk is empty00:44
Gentoo64Jimm_: ok, well the installer should have gparted, go into that00:44
Gentoo64at the top under partitions (i think) there should be an option "create new partition table" or similar, do that and choose gpt00:44
theunholyANYONE?00:45
delcan anyone help on that question?00:45
Jimm_kk. its not possible to install straight to 2.5tb is it?00:45

Gentoo64Jimm_: you mean use the whole 2.5tb as /00:45
Gentoo64?00:45
Jimm_yes00:45
Gentoo64if its 2.5tb you might as well partition it tbh, its huge00:45
urfr332g0del, settings will allow you to set favorite apps, anty browser is okay.00:45
urfr332g0any00:46
damo22Jimm_: its good to separate system from data00:46

Jimm_fair enough00:46
Andrew131lol00:46
delubottu:  that was the real question.  it was how do i switch from firefox being the listed default browser in unity dash home to chromium.00:46
ubottudel: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)00:46
damo22Jimm_: in the event of a catastophe its easier to grab a smaller partition off a disk00:47
urfr332g0joallard, you have some good depression meds you may need them after that analyse. :)00:47
hayshow do I installed the sun jdk in ubuntu00:47
MoleMan_I'm trying to move my root onto an LVM with a liveCD but its giving me errors saying disk full, when its not :/ any ideas how to fix? I think its because the Live CD has magically given itself a total filesystem of 125GB which doesnt match anything I can see...00:47
joallardurfr332g0, think of the thousands!00:47
Jimm_is ext4 best thing to use?00:47
damo22Jimm_: or wipe the system partition to upgrade00:47
Gentoo64Jimm_: yea00:47
cfhowlettJimm_: yes00:47
h00k!java | hays00:48
ubottuhays: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.00:48
joallardThere could be a section where you get to see what you could've bought with that money... car, house, who knows?00:48
delurfr332g0:  okay.  please let me know - how do i change my favorite apps in unity's dash home?00:48

theunholyI installed the damn thing00:49
Vimanfreeroute: general information, really00:49
joallardIt is inconceivable to me that you can't be "just a user" in Ubuntu. You *have* to be a developper/troubleshooter of some sort. Else, you can't get anything done00:49
theunholybut it wont let me putty into it from my windows box00:49
urfr332g0del, I think it is settings not dash home you can get to settings from the logout shutdown dropdown top right of top pab\nel.00:49
Vimanbut I guess I'll just rtfm00:49
urfr332g0panel00:49
damo22theunholy: is it behind a NAT router?00:49
theunholyasks for username, i put it in, asks for password, i put it in and it says access denied00:50
theunholyi have the ports forwarded etc00:50
joallardI've never been so attracted to Macs before using Ubuntu. amazing.00:50
damo22theunholy: maybe its not configured to accept plaintext passwords00:50
theunholyHow do I fix that?00:50
pragmaticenigmatheunholy: what user are you trying to log in as?00:50
theunholythe one im in?00:51
delurfr332g0:  ok, i'm in settings.  what i'm saying is that "dash home" part - can i modify the applications it suggests for me in system settings, then?00:51
theunholynot root00:51
freerouteViman: SSH is awesome, you have ssh which is the client and you have sshd, which is the daemon (running on a server for example), so you got a configuration file in yo homiez directory and you edit it. You edit it goood...00:51
Andrew131theunholy: since your using port forwarding is it at all possible that theres a second ssh server your connecting to?00:51
chaos_zeroi have a web server and i have to -R 777 the website folder every time i add a page or something or clients cant access those pages. How can i make it so everything in the folder is automatically of the correct permission?00:51
damo22theunholy: sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config00:51
nicehsim trying to "runas /user:ap someapp" then it says "chroot(2) to directory before execution", anyone know what to do? to make it work?  im root and want to runa program as the "ap" user.00:52
theunholyok damo?00:52
delurfr332g0:  specifically, when i click dock home, it gives me shortcuts.  one of them is to "browse the web" - but it has a firefox icon.  i want to change that to chromium.00:52
theunholyand no im running only one ssh server on it00:52
freerouteViman: also, you can connect remotely so you don't have to walk across the room. When I realized I could do that with my home server I was like... awwww yeah time to grab some popcorn and chill in this seat.00:52
theunholyi have a virtual machine with ubuntu server installed and just installed openssh00:52
muellichaos_zero: well. 777 are never the right permissions. You probably want to add those files as group "www-data". Make sure you are in that group (using gpasswd or smth similar) and then you can do smth like "newgrp www-data" before adding the files.00:52
Andrew131theunholy: Im not saying running only one ssh on the machine is there only one ssh server behind the nat ?00:53
theunholyYes00:53
theunholyShould only be one00:53
joallardokay, why the hell won't they update gtk+ to bugfixed versions?00:53
urfr332g0del, default app usage of spefic things such a s pdf file or media in in the right click properties menu of the app you want to show such as a pdf or a media file. In setting is a favorite default for like which browser to use etc.00:53
damo22theunholy: vms do different types of networking, you can do nat, bridged or private hosting00:53
Vimanfreeroute: sweet!00:53
theunholyi have it bridged with replicate on00:53
freerouteViman: also you can forward ports and stuff, this way it becomes easier to download porn at work and your sysadmin would be like "Welp, looks encrypted. Seems legit!"00:53
damo22theunholy: in that case you are not connecting to the right machine00:54

delurfr332g0:  i'm not quite sure i follow.  for the dock, yes, a right click lets me say let it stick or take it off...00:54
damo22theunholy: since they will share an ip00:54
delurfr332g0:  but for the dock home if i right click, it just opens the app.00:55

chaos_zero muelli: thanks for the reply. i just skimmed man gpasswd and dont quite understand, but disregarding that, it still sounds like you are saying i will have to assign the new files a command every time. I am looking for a way that anything in the folder just works without having to change it every time. For example some people might upload files to it with FTP but then no one can download them until i use the chmod.00:57
Gentoo64Jimm_: not sure why not, you can make primaries00:57

theunholymy internet ip is the same obviously, but that is why i only have ssh running on ubuntu @ 192.168.1.143 and the router forwarding that port to 192.168.1.14300:58
Jimm_not really sure, this is my first time with ubuntu and only ever partitiond with windows before00:58
Olyano in bin00:58
muellichaos_zero: well. several strategies. One would be to have a sticky bit on the folder people are writing to, so that all created files are automatically in the proper group. The other strategy would be to make the user have the www-data group and maybe default to it.00:58
Gentoo64Jimm_: just make it a primary00:58
delurfr332g0:  ok - i got it.  i just changed it in chromium preferences to be the default browser - then it changed it in the dock from firefox to chromium.  that's all i wanted to do.00:58

h00k!fsck | Olya01:30
ubottuOlya: fsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot01:30
damo22theunholy: i believe putty might be using a different password authentication method than the default ubuntu ssh client does01:30

forbidden404in my buddy's house01:57
escottforbidden404, i think it would be helpful to know if this is webbrowser related or something more low-level. so lets teach you to use telnet to download an http page01:57
pmitrosMy computer has a hard drive that mounts in /media on bootup. I accidentally unmounted it. Is there a way to remount it in the same way as ubuntu mounts it? I know I can mkdir /media/[UUID], mount /dev/sdXX /media/[UUID], but that seems like the wrong way to do it.01:57
pmitrosWith a removable drive, I'd unplug it and plug it back in, but this is a normal, fixed HDD01:58
forbidden404escott, telnet?01:58
Gentoo64pmitros: try just /mount/drive01:58
Gentoo64pmitros: try mount /drive rather01:58
h00kpmitros: you could do sudo mount -a, if it has an entry in fstab01:58
pmitrosIt doesn't have an entry in fstab; it's autodetected by Ubuntu on bootup01:59
pmitrosSo mount /media/[UUID] doesn't help.01:59
escottforbidden404, open a terminal and type "telnet www.google.com 80" then quickly type "GET index.html" and hit enter twice01:59
damo22pmitros: you can find out which partition number it is and mount it manually?01:59
escottforbidden404, it should dump some text out which should end with </BODY></HTML> Connection closed by foreign host.02:00
damo22escott: what about curl02:00
pmitrosdamo: I can. I was just hoping there's a Right Way to do it. I've had the same problem with USB drives, when I unmount them by accident, and I wanted to figure this out once and for all.02:00

metsys23hi there again. firstly thank you all that advise me xubuntu, i am enjoying it very much02:02

metsys23now, i have some questions, as usual of noobs02:03
Gentoo64udisks02:03
escottforbidden404, if you can do that then your internet connection would seem to be working and its likely a web browser issue. you can also use tools like wget or curl to download webpages "curl www.google.com/index.html" which might be easier (you get slightly different results with curl)02:03

I setup a Samba share using a guide and it shares fine to the /srv location but I tried also adding a share to a second hard drive and when I try to access from Windows 7, it says I might not have permissions. Can anyone spare a few minutes to help?02:24
escottkarfir, do you not remember the old password?02:24
wingiemadalin: i have a program that will run and exit .. i want it to rerun everytime it is exited02:24
madalinwingie: thats like hitting your head against the wall :)02:24
BigTaxii require some assistance with a network i can see but cannot connect to. extremely frustrating and troubleshoot doesnt seem to do anything but solve hardware issues.02:24
madalinBigTaxi: errors ?02:25
BigTaxino errors... just wont connect02:25
karfircfhowlett: 1.5TB hdd, I'm trying to find the read speed.  there's 4 gigs of ram and it's a 3ghz core duo processor02:25
BigTaxii can see the network, and as far as i know the card is working fine because the network is being detected02:25
karfirescott: No, I don't remember the old password, it was a few years ago that I set it up.02:25
madalinBigTaxi: what distro/version ?02:25
karfirurfr332g0: Yeah, it's encrypted.02:25
escottkarfir, and you never logged into this system in the intervening period?02:26
urfr332g0karfir, whay does it matter you get in?02:26
BigTaxiubuntu uh....oneiric02:26
karfirurfr332g0: It's not critical, I just want my old music and stuff.02:26
BigTaxi11.1002:26
karfirescott: No, left it in NYC and moved to California.02:26
h00k!encrypted | karfir maybe there's something here that can help02:27
ubottukarfir maybe there's something here that can help: For information on setting up encrypted private directories (8.10+) see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EncryptedPrivateDirectory02:27
madalinBigTaxi: did you try tail -f /var/log/syslog while trying to connect ? Can you paste your dmesg somewhere and provide me with the link ?02:27
urfr332g0karfir, that you have not listed to in two years, hmm sound nefarious to be honest. :)02:27
urfr332g0listened.02:27

h00kwingie: don't tell someone to do that.02:28
madalinwingie: good you got it:))02:28
BigTaxiits on another computer, which has no internet so getting you exact copy/paste is not a very good option.02:28
madalinwingie: that'll just flood your computer02:28
karfirurfr332g0: Yeah, hopefully the NSA/whoever has someone whose job it is to do the nefarious stuff that isn't looking for help on URC02:28
BigTaxii'm a newb and miserable with the terminal... tell me what to do and what to look for02:28
madalinBigTaxi: lspci | grep Ethernet outputs anything ?02:28
wingieh00k madalin: I won't do that command, i just need to loop something else02:28
karfirescott: It's only as secure as the old login password that wraps it, which is more like 656,100,000,000, but can be attacked statistically02:29
BigTaxihold on... tail -f /var/log/syslog left me without a command prompt (my computer and user name)02:29
Oerkarfir, how did you changed your password, like you said earlier ?02:30
BigTaxiand so no new commands will go through02:30
laogjust find out the cairo dock is a cool thing to play with02:30
FlannelBigTaxi: ctrl-c to end that command (tail is still running)02:30
Dr_willisBigTaxi:  thats what tail -f means with the -f option.. reads the file untill you ctrl-c02:30
forbidden404Guys, how I know if I'm missing some lib?02:30
pmitrosls02:30
Dr_willisforbidden404:  error messages in the terminal when you run an app that needs the lib normally.02:31
karfirOer: Just went in in recovery mode, logged in as root and ran passwd.  It was actually a bad idea, because there are a ton of tools that attack /etc/shadow, so if I had left it unchanged I could use one of those.02:31
madalinBigTaxi: did you typed that in a terminal ? If so, try pressing CTRL+C02:31
BigTaxiok. lspci | grep ethernet and nothing happened02:31
forbidden404Dr_willis: but this time my problem isnt with a app02:31
forbidden404an*02:31
Dr_willisforbidden404:  whats it with then?02:31
madalinBigTaxi: are you grep Ethernet. Exactly like i said it..02:31
forbidden404Dr_willis: Is about javascript not running well02:32
forbidden404my browser is okay02:32
BigTaxii typed it exactly as you said, in the terminal02:32
forbidden404Idk what is the problem02:32
madalinBigTaxi: and NOTHING outputs ?02:32
BigTaxinothing02:32
BigTaxiits wireless though... just in case you didnt know and it matters02:32
madalinBigTaxi: well, that command should output at LEAST one line saying something about Ethernet controller.. If it doesnt..maybe you're using an USB network card ?02:33
BigTaxinah. it's a card in my tower that i've been using for years.02:33

escottwebroasters, find . -iname "*_notes" -delete02:36
madalinBigTaxi: so, doing a tail -f /var/log/syslog states NOTHING ?02:36
BigTaxino, it does. what do you need to know02:37
webroastersok thanks escott02:37
escottwebroasters, obv. run it without -delete first, but it will only delete those files it prints02:37
p4ch0How can I upgrade without lose my gnome-classic desktop? unity really sucks ....02:38
webroastersescott. Right, i did that02:38
dark|angelanyone know anything about these guys? http://toratek.net/vps-plans - it seems that they offer every possible version of Ubuntu on Xen for pretty cheap02:38
webroastersone question. how do i do this recursively?02:38
madalinBigTaxi: use that command and try to connect. Anything about wireless ?02:39
webroastersso that it deletes eveerything inside the folders02:39
escottwebroasters, find . -iname "*_notes" -delete02:39
escottwebroasters, find is recursive :)02:39
webroastersright. ok, thanks, i'll try it again02:39
ch33zhello02:39
ch33zI need help with a quick item please! :)02:39
escottwebroasters, unless you mean that those are folders. in which case you can use find . -iname "*_notes" -exec rm -rf {} \;02:39
BigTaxitwo say 'disabling freq 24 (72/84) MHz'02:39
BigTaxiworld regulatory domain updated02:40
webroastersyep, that's probably it02:40
ch33zhow do set up dns and apache I just did a fresh install02:40
BigTaxino connection though02:40
webroasterswith a semi-colon at the end?02:40
ch33zand also how do i add my html files in ubuntu?02:40
BigTaxii did not see you give me a command other than the -tail one... thats just a readout02:40
ch33zi am on Ubuntu server.02:40
dark|angelseems like toratek.net makes linode look overpriced...02:40
escottwebroasters, a \;... you have to get the semicolon escaped so that i makes it to find so that find knows the command is done02:40
Oerch33z, it is all in https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/02:41

codemonkey1337guys, I know this may be a bit off topic but I'm kind of despite. I'm taking a systems programming in unix class, and my homework was to create an MBRviewer program. I created one, and everything works, but some of the CHS addresses are off. I'm hoping you guys can run it against your own MBRs and 1) tell me if they are also off and 2)help me debug my program, if you are willing02:55

Chucky_Lucianohey, is it possible to upgrade totem movie player to 3.2.1 if i am using ubuntu natty?  i like v3.2.1 better, as i have used it in fedora 16, but natty only has totem 2.32.0 ...how would one go about getting the later version?  i did see it on softpedia, but i am not sure how to go about installing it08:10
werdergreenit: I'm not on the Buntu right now but I think if you open up the Lens and start typing "flash" or "adobe" it should pop up08:10
somsipAirborneCalavry: version, that is. like, up to 11.10 from 11.04 or something08:10
g00053is there a gnome-shell setting or extension that will bring up notifications on the left instead of the right?08:11

transporterMailserver question. In /etc/postfix/main.cf I have [relayhost = smtp.someisp.no] and everything works fine. I have to use this relayhost since my ISP has closed port 25.

llutz_!runlevel | eyy1sup08:48
ubottueyy1sup: In 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.08:48
mcurranWhen my system starts up, my eth0 connection gets an IP and reports connected, but there's no traffic going through, I always have to disconnect and reconnect.  Anyone got any ideas?  I have wicd running at startup, and I also define a static ip in interfaces file.  I've tried disabling wlan0, but that doesn't help, because I thought wicd was connecting wlan0 and ...08:48
eyy1supubottu: so, since it uses Upstart, seeing "Unknown" is normal because there's nothing in /etc/inittab?08:48

damo22how do i automatically send a message to someone on irc when they come online ?10:08
CaptAnonI've been using ubuntu for the last 3 years, but unity has really really annoyed me and now I cant go back.10:08
dr_willisdamo22:  depends on the irs client. or use msgserv  service10:08
shadowe989CaptAnon, you can go back. Google how to install gnome 2 on it.10:08
dr_willisgnome2 is dead. time to move on.10:08
fidelCaptAnon: dude you can jump away from unity in several ways10:09
fidelwe even mentioned those ways already10:09
dr_willistheres some gnome2ish thangs for gnome-shell in the works :)10:09

shadowe989CaptAnon, Linux is a modular OS. If you don't like it, change it.10:09

JLucsometime its a miniature10:13
shadowe989llutz, hahaha10:13
JLucwhatdo you mean dr_willis ?10:13
dr_willisif file is so big it uses the Adobe icon instead. to save loading a big file10:13
dr_willisless then 10mb -- thumbnail. over 10mb = use adobe icon10:13
dr_willisi think its 10mb.10:13

Ranthor_HarwathHello I am losing windows on the workspace10:17
hoijui<dr_willis>, does not work.. it does not allow me to pull the dialog out on top, over the border10:17
werderoverclucker! a hyperactive chicken?10:17
JLucthen its just because the system has forgotten to miniature them !10:17
Ranthor_Harwathis there any other way to find it other than the alt tab10:18
overcluckerwerder: chicken with increased cluck rate10:18
JLucAMOF i'm not sure i prefer miniature...10:18
hoijuillutz_, also does not work, cause the element on focus is the "choose printer" drop-box, not the ok button10:18
Lintdr_willis, he means modal dialog bound to its parent10:18
JLucsince there is a lot of different file types in that folder10:18

llutz_hoijui: write a bugreport, they should redesign their dialog-boxes10:19
hoijuito whom?10:19
overcluckerJLuc: alt srag should minimize it too, but isn't the point to click a button? you maximize it again afterwards10:19
Linthoijui, and you cannot drag it by holding down alt and dragging by empty regions in it?10:20
hoijuiyou know.. i have to print my pdf ;-)10:20
overclucker*drag10:20
damo22hoijui, you can press enter to print10:20
hoijuiLint, ahhh that works :D thanks10:20
hoijuidamo22, no i can not, cause ok is not default on focus10:20
damo22hoijui, tab to different focus10:21
hoijuii tried draggign with alt+tittlebar, that did not work10:21
* Lint hates clueless gtk developers10:21
hoijuiyeah i can tab the focus10:21
hoijuibut i have to do that blindly10:21
llutz_hoijui: lpr foo.pdf10:21
Lintevery widget library that allows dialogs larger than screen should be shot10:21
hoijuiit works for me now, using alt+drag on an empty part of the dialog10:22
dr_williscompiz  has a way to shrink a window down also.. but i dont know th ekey combo. and  i bet its not on by default10:22
dr_willisscale plugin perhaps?10:22
SerythIf I wanted wine 1.3.36 rather than 1.3.28, (which is in the repo) would I have to build from source?10:22
ikoniaLint: please keep your comments out10:22
dr_willisalt-click-anywhere drag.. should move..10:22
hoijuii cant use commadn line tool, cause the pdf is shown in a browser, and has stuff in it which i can not save (only print)10:22
hoijuiwell.. problem is notw solved for me.. bnut..10:22
hoijuithat is surely no general solution10:22
dr_willisi use the alt-click drag thing on the netboolk all the time.10:23
hoijuino user would figure that out by himself10:23
damo22hoijui, wget httpofpdf  ; lpr pdf10:23
CaptAnonon the software center the comments say that compiz causes 11.10 to crash, can anyone confirm this?10:23
hoijuihmm.. yeah it woudl have been handy in other situations too10:23
dr_willisive had similer issues on windows.10:23

smookeywe used to be able to resolve our windows domain shares with the help of smbclient (from lucid repo), since upgrade to win 2008 servers the smbclient wont resolve anymore. Is there any other tool to resolve the names (without going up to samba 3.6 or something)12:08

feisarHi, I'm installing Ubuntu on my new netbook and I'd like to encrypt a couple of partitions, /tmp, /home, /swap etc. I was thinking of using luks with cryptsetup etc. is that a supported way of doing things in Ubuntu?12:09
CJRamzekapz: thats how its meant to be I think. Its been like that on mine from day one. You dont need to minimize anything and you double click the task bar to maximise12:09

kapzikonia, I am talking about MInt, which is based on ubuntu, I have ssen them in it12:10

MisterPetHi12:10
YanGMgnome shell is the visual made from gnome team for gnome12:10
ikoniakapz: it doesn't matter what other distros are doing, gnome shell does not have maximise/minimise to bar functionality as part of it's configuration, that is not how gnome shell is designed to work12:10

Aboodamelvincv: any particular problems? I am thinking of switching purely because I find my present Gnome shell draining on memory, and KDE is an even worse black hole for resources12:31

camer0nllutz_: how would i readd those users? adduser to the live cd, then copy across?12:55
shadowe989camer0n, /etc/ is where all you're important configuration files are stored, /etc is where the system looks for its settings. Applications will look in . files in you home directory.12:55
llutz_camer0n: idk if the live-cd allows that, try it12:55
shadowe989I don't think that would work the /etc/passwd file would have special users for a live cd, when u use the live cd u auto login the ubuntu user12:56

mintand im c31r2g13:22
=== mint is now known as c31r2g
ActionParsnipLint: samba on win7 uses a different authentication mechanism, if it was published you'd have no issue but Microsoft are as they are so you get issues.13:22
cypher-neoWhen did the topic in #ubuntu switch to win 7?13:23
shadowe989lol13:23
c31r2gcypher-neo i wondered the same13:23
Sivikcypher-neo, its always been about windows.  lol13:23
hermitage<ActionParsnip> but what if i have to do a server search command where first i need to enter a pwd than i want to see the response of the server page by page ?13:23
shadowe989this is the new windows 7 support channel, I guess you didn't get the memo.13:24
ActionParsnipcypher-neo: its a user with samba issues under ubuntu connecting to Win7. So the topic never changed13:24
cypher-neoActionParsnip, Oh...13:24
cypher-neoActionParsnip, Tell him to reformat the Win 7 computer to Ubuntu. Then he'll have no problems at all. lol13:24
shadowe989hah13:24
Siviklol13:24
ActionParsniphermitage: if the command outputs any text you can pipe to less, any text at all :)13:24
ikoniaI don't find that funny,13:24
ActionParsnipcypher-neo: win7 may be needed (games and such)13:25
c31r2ghi again ikonia13:25
c31r2gso good to see ya again ikonia13:25
ActionParsniphermitage: e.g.  sudo find / | grep -i data | less     etc13:25
BrandonBoltonHas ndiswrapper been working with anyone with 10.04.3? I can not get it to work for me with my Linksys AE1000 wireless adapter.13:26
c31r2gdoes this commands listing never end or what ActionParsnip "e.g.  sudo find / | grep -i data | less"13:27
ActionParsnipBrandonBolton: if you run:  sudo modprobe ndiswrapper    does it help?13:27
ActionParsnipc31r2g: it will end eventually13:27
c31r2gwow thats too long too know13:28
BrandonBoltonActionParsnip, I will try that right now.13:28
ActionParsnipc31r2g: its just a sample command, it doesn't really do much useful13:28
Lintikonia, no, I cannot connect without having ntlm2 enabled13:28
ikoniaLint: I am using it out the box13:28
c31r2glike what?ActionParsnip13:28
ikoniac31r2g: you realise this is ubuntu support, not mint support13:28
c31r2gikonia im a newbie just curiosity over learning things and eventually i'll settle to one or the other distro..:)13:29
ikoniac31r2g: then please ask in the mint support channel why you are using mint13:29
MonkeyDustLint  this question dates from 2008 http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/item/15279/13:30
BrandonBoltonActionParsnip, It is complaining about needing a .conf file and how that will be ignored in a future release.13:30
ikoniac31r2g: the irc server is irc.sportchat.org and the channel is #linuxmint-help or #linuxmint-chat13:30
ActionParsnipc31r2g: it just searches al the files and finds any file name or path containing the word 'data'13:30
ActionParsnipBrandonBolton: is it in /etc/modprobe.d by any chance13:30
Lintikonia's debunked i presume13:31
c31r2gwell ikonia because my hdd has gone bad and no other source of running some other distro so running live usb .....u know dont have anything at hand right know13:31
c31r2gthanks ActionParsnip13:31
Lintbut i'm rather perplexed noone done anything with this since 200813:31
BrandonBoltonActionParsnip, this is exactly what it says: http://pastebin.com/Fv3j8HG313:32
c31r2gwell ikonia mint is 98% ubuntu based so might find some help here so i do visit here13:32
c31r2g:)13:32

tensorpuddingexcept mint has its own channel, so ubuntu doesn't support it13:33
bazhang!mintsupport | c31r2g13:33
ubottuc31r2g: Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu. Please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org13:33
ikoniac31r2g: sorry no - they are different13:33
ActionParsnipBrandonBolton: run:  sudo mv /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper /etc/modprobe.d/myndiswrapper.conf13:33
ActionParsnipBrandonBolton: and it will be ok13:33
* melvincv has no issues with samba on win 7, except for Ubuntus older than 10.04, I guess...13:33
hermitageActionParsnip thanks again :)13:33
kyubutsulesson: type passwords manually, apparently copy/paste, although exactly the same, doesnt parse well ..  who knows these things13:34
ActionParsniphermitage: thanks for the gratitude, it makes a difference :)13:34
shadowe989I'm here to help any Linux questions where I can regardless of distro... Linux is Linux. Feel free to PM me.13:34
hermitageahihi13:34
shadowe989hermitage, hi13:34
kyubutsushadowe989: there is a ##linux for that13:35
c31r2gwell i heard 2 days ago about 98% ubuntu based and also some debian based...so got confused sorry for the bother.i hope you people wont mind a newbies curiosity13:35
shadowe989Kyubutsu I'm already in there.13:35
poselesshi, my problem refer to "wiki.ubuntuusers.de/ASURO". Typing "sudo cat /proc/tty/driver/usbserial" only printed out the first linie. An advice to Unplug all USB devices from PC, to turn off, and wait a minute.13:35
ikoniac31r2g: it's not, it's no problem, however please ask in the mint support channel13:35
tensorpuddingbetter than ##linux, go to a support channel for your distro13:35
c31r2gthanks13:35
c31r2gbye13:36
* kyubutsu ponders the meaning of 'redundancy'13:36
poselessdidn't help13:36
BrandonBoltonActionParsnip, I just tried that and did modprobe again. I got no errors at all, but I can't connect to wireless still.13:36
ikoniac31r2g: irc.spotchat.org channel #linuxmint-help or #linuxmint-chat13:36
ActionParsnipBrandonBolton: if you run:  ndiswrapper -l   does it say driver and hardware are present?13:37
shadowe989c31r2g, you are correct, good luck and sorry =/13:37
loganrunI messed up the settings for ubuntu window manager so I have to log in with ubuntu-2d now, is there a way to reset the settings for just his window manager and not the ubuntu-2d window manager13:37
ActionParsniploganrun: unity --reset   maybe13:37
loganrunor is there a way to use the config editor while not logged into that window manager13:37
BrandonBoltonActionParsnip, Yes, it says driver is installed and device is present.13:38
crizzyloganrun: happened to mess around with compizconfig?13:38
ActionParsnipBrandonBolton: ok, run: sudo depmod -a; echo "ndiswrapper" | sudo tee -a /etc/modules13:38
loganruncrizzy: yes, and there is obviously a bug that I hit upon13:38
ActionParsnipBrandonBolton: then reboot and run:  sudo iwlist scan    do you see wireless networks?13:39
crizzyloganrun: ok, tofix, login to unity 2d. start compizconfig. look for 'unity' plugin. i'm pretty sure this got disabled. click it back on. now unity should work again13:39
poselessmy problem refers to "wiki.ubuntuusers.de/ASURO". Typing "sudo cat /proc/tty/driver/usbserial" only printed out the first linie. An advice to nplug all USB devices from PC, to turn off, and wait a minute. (didn't help)13:39
BrandonBoltonActionParsnip, Okay, I will reboot and run that. I will be back in a few seconds.13:40
loganruncrizzy, there is a Ubuntu Unity plugin that is disabled, but it says that it conflicts with other plugins, do you want to resolve these conflicts13:41
crizzyloganrun: clickety-click: yes13:41
crizzy:p13:41
loganruncrizzy, doesn't tell me what the conflict is though, o.k. will try13:41
crizzycompizconfig is poo13:42
crizzyi think there was some talks to remove it from 12.04 repositories because it only breaks ppl's installations13:42
WaltherIs it possible to install Ubuntu without a desktop environment from the Alternate cd?13:42
Walther!alternate13:42
ubottuThe Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/alternative-download#alternate - See also !minimal13:42
ActionParsnipWalther: could use minimal13:43
WaltherActionParsnip: Minimal didn't detect my wireless13:43
Waltherhence couldn't install13:43
=== david is now known as psycose
ActionParsnipWalther: gotcha13:44
shadowe989!Walther I believe so you just have to select the packages it installs on the menu. I've used the server edition before to fine tune like what you're asking.13:44
ubottushadowe989: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)13:44
ActionParsnipWalther: could install, connect to a wired link and be ok13:44
shadowe989oops didn't mean to hit !13:44
underioHi all. I've just installed debian but when loading grub i get this error: file not found, entering rescue mode.. how can i fix?13:45
underioehm, ubuntu13:45
MonkeyDustWalther  first install, then try if wireless works13:45
ActionParsnipunderio: debian isn't supported here13:45
shadowe989lol nice save hahaha13:45
underioActionParsnip, ubuntu, sorry, i made a mistake13:45
ActionParsnipunderio: hmm13:45
shadowe989underio, use a live disc and type grub-install /dev/sda13:46
shadowe989grub-install is the command you need to use to repair your bootloader13:46
underioi've not a live disc, i've an alternate cd13:46
ActionParsnipunderio: press CTRL+ALT+F2 in alternate CD and you may be able to run it there13:47
WaltherMonkeyDust: Minimal CD can't install without internet connection13:47
shadowe989underio, can't make one by any chance? Last time I used the alternative console it didn't seem to launch the apps unless you find them in /bin13:47
BrandonBoltonActionParsnip, I just restarted then ran sudo iwlist scan and it says that lo and eth0 both do not support scanning.13:47
underioActionParsnip, grub-install not found13:47
