_MarcusCanadian1296: cli00:39
_MarcusCanadian1296: I didn't mount it in Ubuntu. How do I do that?00:39
Canadian1296_Marcus: Then you have to mount it. You use the command "sudo mount /dev/<disk> /mnt" So the cd rom is in /dev, and you have to find out what it's called. If it was 123, you'd use "sudo mount /dev/123 /mnt"00:40

HeadcaseMy laptop (Running Ubuntu 10.04) won't boot into the OS as far as I can tell, it gives me the message "No init found. Try passing init=bootarg". The LiveCD won't mount the drive either.02:46
N3ffaDid anything change (config wise) or hardware wise before you go the error?02:47
HeadcaseNo, nothing changed, but the machine overheated and shut down before this happened. (It's a Toshiba Satellite, they're prone to overheating)02:48
N3ffahrm, sounds like your drive got corrupted or failed... I can't be sure but if the default init isn't booting than that's likely the problem. Especially if the LiveCD isn't mounting the drive.02:49
HeadcaseBugger. Is there any way to recover my data from the drive?02:50
diamondshow do I pipe to the clipbaord?02:50
N3ffabefore ruling out a bad drive, you can try to format it again. You will lose everything but if it's just a curupted filesystem than that should work.02:50

N3ffawhat error do you get when you try to mount it from livecd02:50

bazhang!notunity | sgo1103:49
ubottusgo11: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic03:49
cfhowlettLesterwood: as evidenced by your continued and deliberate flouting of this channel' protocols?03:49
urfr332g0N3ffa, funny it was in your response as well, groud yourself now. :)03:49

cyphasenathan28, there's some kind of pattern.. haven't figured it out yet :P06:17
subb1meskarune: but do not have ubuntu installed on ntfs partition06:17
cyphasei can write a script to do it fairly easily, i just wondered if there was some standard utility i could use06:17

hiexpo1 sec06:18
sun_devilThe list in Ubuntu for Kodak printer is about 506:18
meskarunempgutta: you can limit what ip's use the port, or have it be lan only. check your router's manual06:18
mpguttameskarune: ok sure.06:18
somsipmpgutta: no, you need to add a route from the router to the PC06:18

monraHello! My laptop screen's right part doesn't work. So I was wondering, is there a way to "tell" ubuntu, just to put all the windows in the left part, so I don't have to minimize a window it's time it opens?06:28
victicomI tried installing on a virtual machine, ubuntu 11.10, and no luck today... So... I'll try again tomorrow.06:28
sun_devilNetwork printer has a IP address and says connected to local host but cant print test page?06:28
_Brun0_victicom, thanks! good to know it is a temporary issue. I'll keep using firefox for now and try it tomorrow. Thanks!06:28
victicomWait wait wait...06:28
victicomI did not say it was temporary... I only said it was actin up today. I don't know for sure that it will be back tomorrow.06:29
_Brun0_victicom, I know but it's google.. they'll probably fix it.06:29
victicomThat's what I'm hoping on. I use chrome for the most part.06:29
victicomYeah... more than likely.06:29
victicomGL tomorrow @ it.06:29

victicomNow...that there might be an issue.06:30
ubottustytown: Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu. Please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org06:31
hiexpomeskarune, he or she what eva is a dummy cause I used about 20 times hehe and there is no config file just amake file   hehe06:31

victicomOh, I meant for stytown06:32
_Brun0_victicom, ok sorry06:32
victicomI know its rare to run a VB on USB stick06:32
meskarunemaybe stytown is running mint in a vm in ubuntu?06:33
victicomWell... back to our Ubuntu issue?06:33
meskaruneand they want to use their php stuff in their local install06:33
victicomYEs, even if thats the case, mesk... it still is a linux mint related question.06:33
subb1overclucker: yea. phew.. thanks once again06:33
victicomThats what I thought, though... so... anyways, I joined the linuxmint channel, too.06:34
victicom_Brun0_, do you think it may have to do with the virtual box that U11.10 is not allowing Chrome download site? I dont know... some weird issue?06:35
_Brun0_victicom, no because the lik: https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb also gives the same 404 error on my Win7 machine.06:36
victicomNope... then its not a VB thing.06:36

prashant_123456which version of gnome do am i using ??06:50
nathan28prashant_123456: i don't know but apt does06:50
macmartineKimmen: So, you probably need to know more about the setup, but might it make sense to make a user just for the cron tasks?06:51
prashant_123456nathan28, any command to know that06:51
nathan28prashant_123456: i don't know apt, $man apt and read the section on querying06:51
nathan28or just fire up synpatic pkg manager06:51
cfhowlettHeyHeyHey: a 30 second check to ensure the quality of the download isn't so much trouble really.  also, you should check sum the burned CDROM to ensure that it's good.  If both of those pass, if you correctly booted from the CDROM as you claim then possibly your CDROM drive is faulty.06:51

_Brun0_I remember the day I ran everything as root. It was when trying to install and configure my first linux distro ever. Let me tell you, that day I destroyed and reinstalled poor debian 14 times in a row! Then I learned that with great power comes great responsibility.06:52
HeyHeyHeyHow do I do the md5 check?06:52
ubottuheyheyhey, please see my private message06:52

mcurranprashant_123456 I'm pretty sure you delete ~/.gnome2/panel2.d the pane2.d directory, but I'm not possitive, and that's for gnome208:06
GhostWolftristan3199us, not to be rude but i don't think thats going to help, if its a problem of not reading a plain audio cd it has to be something not needed mounted, ubuntu can reconize other discs just fine..08:07
GhostWolfbut anyways since that wasn't really want i wanted to know i just do an old fashion way and go into windows and put the music onto my comp..08:07
janisozaurwhy does 'canorus' package require lilypond-doc? shouldn't the -doc package be only suggested?08:08
terminhellbecause ubuntu likes to pull in things that really aren't required08:09
prashant_123456mcurran, using ubuntu 11.1008:09
terminhelli mean, just try removing gdm or evolution....it tries  to take all of gnome with it...or used too08:09
tristan3199usghostwolf: no offense taken..08:10
janisozaurterminhell, hmm, it seems that apt-get thinks 'recommends' means 'depends'08:10
Lintterminhell, that's because gnome is compiled in the way its developers expect08:12
Lintthey cannot afford playing hackers and compile gnome without important dependencies providing the functionality user wants08:13
terminhellLint: its an ubuntu issue. other distro's will allow you to remove components from gnome that wont end up removing the whole gnome install.08:14
glebihanterminhell, ubuntu also allows you to do that08:14
terminhellperhaps, but not as finely tuned as it could be08:15
glebihanterminhell, the only package that will get removed when you uninstall gdm is the gnome metapacjage08:15
wisniawho can tell me how to change gnome file manager icon colours (apperance) ?08:15
Lintterminhell, they will not, as gnome components will not load if libraries they are linked with are missing08:16
linux5001Hey guys, anybody knows where to get Linux System Engineers? I already advertised on xing, linkedin without success. The market seems be completely sucked dry. Anybody knows of forums that have subforums for jobs? I can not find any.08:16
glebihanLint, most gnome components do not depend on each other08:16
terminhelland thats the problem. for some reason evolution is tied in so much with ubuntu's version of gnome (or at least used to be) that it wants to take most of it with it08:17
tobshow can i send privat msg to users in irc under client "weechat"08:17
glebihanterminhell, what do you mean "most of it" ?08:17
tobsanybody else uses "weechat"??08:18
glebihanterminhell, what does it want to remove when you try to uninstall evolution ? which packages08:18
alexander-zfhow to change from default unity to gnome in ltsp client?08:18
glebihanterminhell, that's a metapackage08:18
glebihanterminhell, removing it doesn't actually remove anything08:18
terminhellhmm, a bit misleading i suppose08:19
glebihanterminhell, it's just there to help installing a default gnome desktop08:19
terminhellstill odd that it would even display that though08:19
glebihanterminhell, it depends on all gnome packages but contains no data08:19
terminhellit just doesnt seem as modular as it could be08:19
glebihanterminhell, no, it's normal. Evolution is one of gnome's default applications so gnome-desktop depend on it08:19
glebihanterminhell, it is very modular. As soon as you'll remove the gnome-desktop package, you'll be able to remove any part of gnome you want08:20
terminhelli guess my issue is the need to remove a meta package in the first place, or its need of one at all08:21
glebihanterminhell, the need for one is that it makes things much more simpler when a user wants to install gnome08:21
glebihanterminhell, he only has 1 package to install08:22
terminhelli guess i just have a different philosophy to package management08:23
terminhellhello Mephisto08:23

Dwade09how do i convert .flv or .mp4 or .avi to .mp3?10:37
Muelliso azbarcea_, I think you can apt-get purge the -15 one, because you still have the -12 installed :) Actually, apt-get purge both, the -15 and the -16. Oh, and the -17, too.10:37
chaospsychexMacroMan: once irssi is started you run '/server irc.ubuntu.com'10:37
chaospsychexMacroMan: then '/nick MacroMan' then 'join #ubuntu'10:37
MacroManOk got it10:37
chaospsychexso do that and we go from there10:38

Simon1245Hey guys, could someone tell me how to connect "My Documents" from Windows to Linux and changes made in Linux happens on Windows aswell, would be appericated if someoen could help me step by step :)11:04
Muellieh azbarcea_. More context would be good, i.e. to see were ec2 comes from :-\ Maybe use wgetpaste or smth like that to conveniently post the thing.11:04
damo22Simon1245, you could create a separate partition for your stuff11:04
MacroMan"pgrep gdm" doesn't do anything11:04
chaospsychexMacroMan: reboot11:04
ActionParsnipSimon1245: is it an internel partition11:04
MacroManOK, be back in a min11:04
llutzMacroMan: so no gdm running11:04
damo22Simon1245, using an NTFS or FAT32 partition that both OS can see11:05
Simon1245damo22, How would that work?11:05
Simon1245damo22, No idea, ActionParsnip what does that mean lol11:05
=== MrPen is now known as penreturns
damo22Simon1245, basically its a segment of your hard disk dedicated to your important files, and both OS can Read and Write to it11:06
davidOK, it booted back to command line11:07
=== david is now known as Guest45827
Guest45827ah damn11:07
damo22Simon1245, is that what youre after?11:07
Guest45827I didn't login to MacroMan quick enough11:07
Simon1245damo22, How can I check wether it's NTFS or FAT32?11:07
Simon1245damo22, Yes so basically if I'm working on linux and saves something that it appears on Windows when I switch to Windows partition11:08
damo22Simon1245, it doesnt exist on your machine yet, im saying its one way you can set things up11:08
david__Ok I'm back11:09
david__It's MacroMan11:09
Simon1245damo22, I want something that could save changes I made in one OS to another so I don't have to switch it manually, it's hard to explain lol11:09
chaospsychexdavid__: so what happened11:09
damo22Simon1245, this is why i recommend splitting your important data into a separate partition11:09
david__Just booted back to command line11:09
ActionParsnipSimon1245: is it on a disk INSIDE the system?11:09
david__But did do a disk check when it started11:10
kaiowasHi, just wondering if anyone here has installed Ubuntu on a Mac and could answer a couple of questions?11:10
Simon1245ActionParsnip, Yeah it's on the harddrive in the computer, not using any external one if that's what you mean11:10
ActionParsnipSimon1245: Ubuntu can access your NTFS partitions easily, just have it mount at boot then make a symlink for easy access11:10
david__Shall I try removing gdm and putting on kdm instead?11:10
Jordan_Ukaiowas: Easiest way to find out is to ask your questions. If anyone can answer them, they probably will :)11:11
ActionParsnipSimon1245: yes, its on a drive inside your system, so its an internal partitions11:11
chaospsychexdavid__: do you run the purge command before you reinstalled gdm ?11:11
kaiowasJordan_U: Right :)11:11
damo22Simon1245, can you paste the output of sudo fdisk -l11:11
david__No, was I supposed to?11:11
damo22Simon1245, to a pastebin11:11
Simon1245damo22, sure11:11
david__So apt-get remove gdm11:11
david__apt-get purge gdm11:11
Simon1245ActionParsnip, I see :) your way seems easier how can I do it?11:11
chaospsychexapt-get remove --purge gdm11:11
azbarcea_Muelli: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/551332/11:11
david__then apt-get install gdm11:11
chaospsychexprefixed with sudo ofcourse11:11
azbarcea_Muelli: great tool that wgetpaste ... thx ...11:11
david__Ok, let me do that quickly11:11
kaiowasHow much space will Ubuntu take installed? I thought 20gb should be enough for a Ubuntu partition, so i can play around some with it.11:11
chaospsychexubuntu will take 19.5gb11:12
damo22chaospsychex, O_o11:12
david__hmm, my tty2 is stuck starting apache.11:12
ActionParsnipSimon1245: you will need to add an entry for it in /etc/fstab so that it mounts at boot11:12
Myrttikaiowas: depends on how you'll partition and plan your system11:12
kaiowasthey are good at compressing those files then ;)11:12
Simon1245damo22, http://pastebin.com/1Eb5si8d11:12
chaospsychexdavid__: why is it trying to start apache?11:12
Myrttichaospsychex: if you don't have constructive and actually helpful things to say, then don't.11:12
Jordan_Ukaiowas: A default install of Ubuntu takes a little less than 3 GiB last I checked. How much space you need beyond that depens on what files you store and what applications you install.11:12
ActionParsnipkaiowas: my full gnome desktop is about 4Gb in size with all the codecs and so forth11:12
kaiowasMyrtti: First time install.. so this will be just a partition so i can learn Ubuntu.11:13
Simon1245ActionParsnip, could you show me how to do it like step by step as I'm a beginner to this.11:13
david__I have apache running on my machine by default11:13
ActionParsnip!ntfs | Simon124511:13
ubottuSimon1245: To view your Windows/Mac partitions see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AutomaticallyMountPartitions - For write access, see !NTFS-3g or !FUSE11:13
david__I'll worry about that later11:13
ActionParsnipSimon1245: there are plenty of guides around11:13
Simon1245ActionParsnip, Thanks :) Checking it now :)11:13
damo22Simon1245, you have too many swap partitions!11:13
david__Don't I need to re-install ubuntu-desktop since it was removed when I first did apt-get remove gdm?11:14
Muellihm azbarcea_. It tries to do a  "find /tmp/mkinitramfs_SISkZ5". Can you do that?11:14
kaiowasSo, to partition my drive i should go to the Bootcamp program and do the same way as i install windows.. then install refit?11:14
chaospsychexdavid__: yes, was that re-installed when gdm was re-installed?11:14
chaospsychexdavid__: it should of installed it when gdm was installed, depends11:14
david__No, when I removed gdm again, it didn't show it for removal11:14
chaospsychexsudo apt-get install gdm11:15
chaospsychexdont hit anything11:15
david__how do I check if I have it11:15
Jordan_Ukaiowas: No. Boot Camp will create a "hybrid" mbr, which is only needed because Windows can't boot from GPT on BIOS systems. If you're not using Windows, you don't want a hybrid mbr.11:15
Simon1245damo22, What does that mean lol11:15
chaospsychexdavid__: have what?11:15
kaiowasJordan: Ok, so just go to diskutilities and make one more partition of the free space i have?11:15
azbarcea_Muelli: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/551333/11:15
david__Actually the apt-get install for gdm sisn't install it11:16
david__Can I do apt-get install ubuntu-desktop?11:16
damo22Simon1245, it appears that you have a hidden windows partition, plus 2 NTFS partitions plus a linux one and 3 swap partitions11:16
chaospsychexdavid__: ok so 'sudo apt-get remove --purge ubuntu-desktop' first11:16
Muellihm azbarcea_. Looks good. Can you do a "echo $?" immediately after the find?11:16
azbarcea_Muelli: no headers11:16
Halexander9000ActionParsnip: That hasn't helped sir.11:17
Jordan_Ukaiowas: Follow the directions here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download , and also install rEFIt just for ease (it's not needed, but it's convenient)11:17
david__Ok, now install?11:17
azbarcea_Muelli: shouldn't be some headers there?11:17
chaospsychexdavid__: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop11:17
david__Ok Downloading11:17
chaospsychexdavid__: then 'sudo apt-get install gdm'11:17
david__it's 10mb11:17
Simon1245damo22, the hidden one is Windows recovery one, the 2 NTFS is one C: and one :D for like backup files, linux one is kinda obvious and got no idea what the 3 swap one means lol11:17
david__I already have gdm though11:17
ActionParsnipHalexander9000: thats all I know dude, sorry. Not something I use11:18
azbarcea_Muelli: output is: 011:18
damo22Simon1245, do you want 4Gb of extra space as a E:?11:18
Muellino azbarcea_, why? It's the initramdisk, the thing that gets loaded even before your OS is loaded.11:18
chaospsychexdavid__: did you purge before you 'sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desltop' ?11:18
farrukhjonhow about upgrading linux kernel from kernel.org from trabal, is who tried it11:18
Simon1245E: linux one?11:18
kaiowasJordan_U: Thank you. If i don't install rEFIt i can just hold the ALT key and choose the Ubuntu partition?11:18
david__It's also instsalling linux-headers-generic11:18
azbarcea_Muelli: $ echo $?11:18
Halexander9000ActionParsnip: By any chance, you wouldn't happen to know the LXDE chat room here? Whenever I /list the channels on this network, pidgin crashes.11:18
david__Ok that's complete now11:19

Jordan_Ukaiowas: There are instructions for making a USB drive which is bootable by a mac at the page I linked to, but they are complicated, not recommended, and will have you booting in EFI mode which will cause problems with graphics drivers. Also, if you do end up going the USB route you would have to *not* use the +mac iso.11:23
Muelliazbarcea_: hm. but that's good *thinking*. Make it smth like this:11:23

terminhellXeli: not sure if this helps https://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell/CheatSheet11:59
auronandacesideev: there is an update, but you won't get 3.2.5 or higher on 11.10 unless you deliberately install it11:59

terminhellsideev: i wouldnt attempt going outside of the stable kernels for ubuntu. weird weird things can happen.12:00
sideevauronandace: And how can i install it?12:00
sideevterminhell: The one am having is the latest stable kernels? o12:01
krissedcrizzy_ i have a script.. in this script i do some editing that requires sudo.. however when i execute the script it just gives me access denied. it doesnt ask me for password at all. why ?12:01
terminhellsideev: most likely12:01
krissedcrizzy_ every command that needs the sudo inside the script starts with sudo12:01
auronandacesideev: sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade (that will get you the latest in the repo which is
denis_my firefox crashes non stop, even after reinstallation, since last upadate. how can i fix it?12:03
azbarcea_Muelli: i did another apt-get upgade ... got the same errors, the system asked me to restart, I did, the default option was kernel -16, which it freeze (with keyboard leds flashing), now i'm in  kernel -12 again12:03
crizzy_krissed: execute this script via a wrapper script like i said12:03
krissedah ok. sorry didnt see that line untill just now12:04
Muellihm azbarcea_. Can you get us dmesg and syslog again?12:04
crizzy_krissed: 1) script that calls your script with gksudo - this script is callable by everyone 2) your actual scrip which executes only with sudo, called by script 112:04
azbarcea_Muelli: sure12:04
crizzy_krissed: then make a shortcut to the first script12:04
krissedcrizzy_ excelent. thanks12:04
azbarcea_Muelli: dmesg is http://paste.pocoo.org/show/551370/ and syslog is http://paste.pocoo.org/show/551371/12:05
OliAnybody know where Gedit 3's settings are stored? I'm trying to migrate settings from one account to another but I've now copied everything in $(find . -iname '*gedit*') and it's still using stock settings.12:05
MuelliOli: gconf respective dconf12:05
ActionParsnipOli: try:  find $HOME | grep -i gedi12:06
sideevterminhell: auronandace Thanks for all the help. Really mean it. Learned so many things. And still want to learn a lot. Sometimes I find IRC chat better than a google search. Thanks again. :)12:06
ActionParsnipOli: may also be in dconf12:06
OliActionParsnip: that's essentially what I've done12:06
terminhellsideev: your welcome. good luck12:06
auronandacesideev: no worries :)12:06
OliMuelli & ActionParsnip: Any ideas how to extract the settings from one dconf and move them over?12:06
Muelliazbarcea_: you've got the very same errors again. Can you see that in dmesg? I don't think it make sense but to minimize the error potential, I'd remove the nvidia binary driver. If that's possible that is :-| Maybe remove all kernels after -12.12:06
MuelliOli: not right now, but there is gconftool-2 and I'm confident, that there is a dconf-tool (or the like). Google will know.12:07
ActionParsnipOli: not sure tbh, does dconf have a man page?12:07

magentium__Hello everyone :)12:08
raahedeHow do I over SSH disable the login screen on a Ubuntu 11.10 desktop ?12:10
terminhelltensorpudding: very carefully?12:10
azbarcea_Muelli: remove -16 with errors http://pastebin.com/c3ZLjGfX12:11
=== nick is now known as Guest65947
terminhellraahede: why would you do that? and what, like the gdm?12:11
tensorpuddingso i guess if you use virtualbox in ubuntu you always have to be in fear of updates bumping the kernel version and breaking guest additions12:11
icerootraahede: you want that the system will start with cli instead of a gui? or auto-login?12:11
iceroottensorpudding: no12:12
tensorpuddingor i guess i have to wait until someone pushes an update that fixes it12:12
iceroottensorpudding: not if you are using everyting from the repos12:12
tensorpuddingoh, i definitely am12:12
Halexander9000Can anyone help me with a minecraft issue?12:12
ActionParsnipHalexander9000: what is the issue?12:12
iceroottensorpudding: then normally everything should fit12:12
raahedeiceroot, yes a autologin, its on my parents computer and they dosent need a logon screen when they turn on ubuntu12:12
magentium__Halexander9000 whats up? whats the issue ?12:12
tensorpuddingyes, and the fact that it doesn't means someone screwed up12:12
Muelliah yeah azbarcea_. We still haven't configured initramfs-tools *thinking*. Well. Can you get rid of your binary driver anyway?12:13
azbarcea_Muelli: u're refering to errors from dmesg at line 1299?12:13
raahedeiceroot, iam supporting them via SSH, so if there is a file I just can edit, it would be perfect12:13
Halexander9000ActionParsnip: magentium__: Same as always I'm afraid. Clicking too fast and the mouse cursor pops out of the window and pauses my game. Can't use swords because of it.12:13
Muelliazbarcea_: probably. there's an oops caused by your nvidia driver and then it remounts two partitions read only. Both events are not good.12:13
magentium__Ahh i see. I never had that issue on mine. What version of JAVA are you using? The OpenJDK or the SunJava version?12:14
magentium__i found OpenJDK my mouse would not stay in the window.12:14
Halexander9000magentium__: Hm. How do I check?12:14
Halexander9000magentium__: Is there a terminal command for that?12:14
krissedHmm what happens if i attempt in using sed to delete lines in a file which doesnt exist ?12:15
magentium__Halexander9000 just type in a terminal : java -version12:16
magentium__And let me know what it says12:16
azbarcea_Muelli: $ sudo apt-get -y purge nvidia* | wgetpaste : "No apport report written because the error message indicates its a followup error from a previous failure. E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)" ... more http://paste.pocoo.org/show/551376/12:16
Halexander9000magentium_: OpenJDK as suspected.12:17
azbarcea_Muelli: reboot?12:18
Muelliazbarcea_: mom12:18
MuelliI'll check the output12:18
meethow do i turn on the touchpad after turning it off from the the terminal12:18
magentium__Halexander9000 give me two minutes i will get you a link to install SunJava. Its much faster and more stable12:19
Halexander9000Thanks magentium__.12:19
Muelliazbarcea_: could you do smth like dpkg-reconfigure -p low initramfs-tools ?12:19
ActionParsnipmeet: could unload then reload the psmouse module12:19
meeti used sudo modprobe -r psmouse to turn off the touchpad12:19
Calinouto use sun's java, you will have to use update-alternatives12:19
Calinoudownload sun's java, unzip, put in /opt folder, use update-alternatives correctly12:20
azbarcea_Muelli: /usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: initramfs-tools is broken or not fully installed12:20
meetwhats the opposite of sudo modprobe -r psmouse then?12:20
Muellihm azbarcea_. Full output?12:20
anninteresting i need java for some browsing12:20
azbarcea_Muelli: that's it!12:21
azbarcea_Muelli: that's the full output :)12:21
meetok got it. used sudo modprobe psmouse12:21
azbarcea_Muelli: we have the backup ... right?12:21
chilli0Hey, I have an ubuntu headless server, and after like 1day it always dissconnects from the network, how can i figure out why this is happening?!12:21
Muelliazbarcea_: yeah, so no problem :)12:22
Muelliazbarcea_: alright. Well. reboot first. Then we'll take care of initramfs-tools12:22
azbarcea_Muelli: brb ... rebooting12:22
Muellichilli0: Check /var/log/{syslog,daemon,debug, ...}12:23
chilli0Muelli: Can you be any more specific. i found something in syslog a few days ago, but didn't know what to think of it, i'll pb if you could have a look.12:24
=== ksinkar_ is now known as ksinkar
Muelliwell chilli0. How do you know, that is disconnects in first place? I.e. what are the symptoms?12:24
raahedeiceroot, I can see in some guides, there is an easy way to do it in the GUI. In User accounts, but does it remove the SSH password aswell? because it shouldnt. Thanks in advance.12:25
azbarcea_Muelli: i'm back12:25
chilli0Muelli: i can't ping it..12:25
azbarcea_Muelli: another dmesg: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/551381/12:25
Muellichilli0: hm. How do you get access to the machine then? I.e. do you have to reboot?12:26
azbarcea_chilli0: do you have VPNs?12:27
Muellihm azbarcea_. Again: EXT4-fs (sda2): re-mounted. Opts: errors=remount-ro,commit=0 :-(12:27
chilli0yeah reboot every time, and no not that i remember. i may have tried a while ago to set one up.12:27
ray1clawI need to host a VNC server so another guy can access my PC remotely. We are not on a local network. Can anyone please explain or give me a ref link to help get around to this?12:27
Muelliazbarcea_: what are these for partitions? sda2 and sdb4?12:27
azbarcea_Muelli: sda2 is /12:28
Muelliray1claw: maybe: http://askubuntu.com/questions/11075/how-can-i-enable-the-share-desktop-feature-in-empathy12:28

ubotturay1claw: 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 !FreeNX12:29
ray1clawMuelli, share desktop only shows the other guy ur desktop in realtime, and does not allow them to control it.12:29
Muelliazbarcea_: arr :-\ hm. I don't get it. It should be read only, but we wrote to /etc/ and /tmp all the time *thinking*. That's a weird message. But let's assume that it doesn't matter... Can you show us apt-get install --reinstall initramfs-tools again?12:30
ray1clawubottu, i need to know how to set up a VNC server using vino or something... the GUI app sets up a local server, but when some guy puts in my global ip ‌into vinagre, it says the server is closed12:31
ubotturay1claw: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)12:31
Muelliray1claw: hm. should be possible to set remote control up. Maybe with vino-preferences12:31

azbarcea_Muelli: fstab - http://paste.pocoo.org/show/551386/12:31
ActionParsnipray1claw: why does the guy need remote desktop access? Maybe there is a sleeker solution..12:32

ray1clawActionParsnip, whats the sleeker solution12:34
krissedI got a little script issue: What would the expected outcome of this do: if [-f /etc/skel/.profile.old]12:34
ray1clawMuelli, tried vino-prefs, it only sets up for the local network12:34
Muelliray1claw: set vino up and then use emphaty12:34
damo22krissed: you need a space like so:  [ -f ..... .old  ]12:35
ActionParsnipray1claw: well, what will the guy do once connected to your system?12:35
azbarcea_Muelli: you seem to be God here, everyone wants you :)12:35
llutz[ -f /etc/skel/.profile.old ] krissed12:35
krissedahh thanks12:35
ray1clawActionParsnip, i need to show the guy a site ive been designing in wordpress.. since dynamic dns doesnt work, vnc is my alternate solution12:36
Muelliazbarcea_: Can you show us apt-get install --reinstall initramfs-tools again?12:36
ray1clawMuelli, hmm, okay, i'm looking through it now12:36
krisseddamo22 and 1lutz THANKS.. I made a script which lets me pick a location of our schools and based on userinput from 1-9 it creates your bookmarks to accomodate the windows common shares12:37
ActionParsnipray1claw: are you running a web server on the system?12:37
ray1clawActionParsnip, so all he'll do is access my desktop, open up the browser, and open up localhost/wordpress and localhost/wordpress/wp-admin12:37
azbarcea_Muelli: i think it worked: http://pastebin.com/7xZiQxBu (besides the error)12:37
ActionParsnipray1claw: why not port forward port 80 on the router to port 80 on the server and he can browse it12:37
azbarcea_Muelli: or not12:37
azbarcea_Muelli: missing /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf12:37
ActionParsnipray1claw: you just need to give him your WAN IP and he can web browse as normal.12:38
Muelliazbarcea_: no. Yeah, that's the point. Let's mkdir /etc/initramfs-tools12:38
Muelliazbarcea_: and then "sudo touch /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf". Weird though. I would have expected it to set that up for us. Something's weird anyway.12:38
ActionParsnipray1claw: you don't need the full desktop for that. VNC is really OTT for that purpose.12:38
azbarcea_Muelli: i do have the directory initramfs-tools, no need to recreate it: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/551387/12:39
Muellioh, that's interesting indeed azbarcea_. So just do the touch then12:39
ray1clawActionParsnip, can you elucidate on that please? I have a modem connected in series with a router/repeater.. my modem is a beetle 220bx and i dont see any port forwarding or NAT options in there, but there are plenty of options within my router..12:40
azbarcea_Muelli: ok ... at least something new: http://pastebin.com/exTwyXgu12:40
azbarcea_Muelli: when we last did this we were in kernel -15 ... now we are in -12 (if it matters)12:41
ray1clawActionParsnip, i'd appreciate if you could help me step by step on this, 'cause I'm still a newb to all this12:42
ActionParsnipray1claw: you will need to access the config of your router using your web browser, you will then go to the port forwarding (sometimes called virtual server) and tell the router to forward al requests on port 80 to the IP address of your web server12:42
ActionParsnipray1claw: I can't do it step by step as routers vary massively, there is no single answer12:42
Muelliazbarcea_: WTF? /usr/sbin/mkinitramfs: 360: cannot create : Directory nonexistent. Arr. I have way too many of your pastebins open -.- Trying to find the script...12:43
ActionParsnipray1claw: once you access your routers config page, start hunting through the options, you'll find it12:43
=== e|f_ is now known as e|f
azbarcea_Muelli: at least ": mkinitramfs failure cpio 141 gzip 2" we have gzip 2 instead of 1 :D12:44
Muelliazbarcea_: your /bin/sh is dash again, right?12:44
ray1clawActionParsnip, I realize that, the problem is, that my modem (beetle 220bx) (accessed by putting in into the browser) is a very old model and has no port-forwarding/NAT/virtual server options.. I can pastebin a screenie if you'd like12:44
azbarcea_Muelli: yep12:45
azbarcea_Muelli: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2012-02-15 13:40 /bin/sh -> dash*12:45
krissedGod damn!. Its like the perfect day here.. I now can have schools install my costumized distro of ubuntu - join it to the domain - have users log on. Have each school pick their own common shares plus their own private ones.. awsome!12:45
ActionParsnipray1claw: i'd check your manual, if there is no port forwarding then you are pretty stuck12:45
Muelliazbarcea_: do you remember the last bash -x you executed? I can't find it right now, but we want to do that again (but slightly different)12:47
ray1clawActionParsnip, but the wifi router (which is a different device altogether - accessed by putting in into the browser) is fairly and has post forwarding in there. My question is, will it work if I forward it from there.. the heirarchy is phone cable->modem->wifi router->desktop12:47
ray1claw*fairly new12:47
ActionParsnipray1claw: the modom is a transparent device so don't sweat the modem too much12:47
yakci installed gnome 3 and some how i can't get all the shortcuts working. for example ctrl + alt + d or ctrl + alt + t is not working even they seem to be mapped in keyboard settings12:48
damo22if you have a cable modem plugged into the wan port of a router, the router sees all the ports at the wan side afaik12:48
yakcwhat should i do12:48

ActionParsnipyakc: what is the output of:  lsb_release -sc12:48
azbarcea_Muelli: we don't have -16 installed to do this, I should make an apt-get isntall -16 first, right?12:49
Muelliazbarcea_: yeah, hm. do that again but with -12 and "/bin/sh" instead of "bash".12:49

yakcActionParsnip, it simply says oneiric12:49
ActionParsnipyakc: ok then Gnome3 is default installed. You don't have to install it manually12:50
azbarcea_Muelli: i did a sudo bash ... http://paste.pocoo.org/show/551390/12:50
Muelliazbarcea_: do it w/o bash but /bin/sh12:50
azbarcea_Muelli: but the previous one was with bash and 1612:50
Muelliazbarcea_: yeah, hm. do that again but with -12 and "/bin/sh" instead of "bash".12:50
ray1clawActionParsnip, okay, so I found virtual servers in the router settings, can you tell me what all goes in the text boxes here? The fields are labelled: Inbound port, Type(TCP/UDP), Private Address Port (192.168.2.___), Private port12:51
Metaphysicist So I have a question for you gurus. I'm running a linux-based drive-wiping software on multiple machines with RAID controllers. I was wondering if there was a way to always correlate a number from the controller to a mount point, and make it that way every time (regardless of UUID). So Port 2 on the SAS/SATA/Whatever controller always points to /dev/sd*12:51
azbarcea_Muelli: all the output :D /bin/sh: Can't open mkinitramfs12:51
azbarcea_Muelli: I think I'll go nuts :D12:51
yourfrinedisaacHi I took 12.04 for a test drive and I get an error message that says my cpu doesn't have pae. What is pae. My cpu isnt that old.12:51
Muelliazbarcea_: make it sudo /bin/sh /usr/sbin/mkinitramfs ...12:51
ActionParsnipray1claw: on your system, run:  iconfig   you will see your IP address12:52
damo22Metaphysicist, doesnt the raid controller automatically number the drives according to their slot in the bays?12:52
azbarcea_Muelli: however: "sudo bash -x mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-3.0.0-12-generic.new 3.0.0-12-generic 2>&1 | wgetpaste" outputs  http://paste.pocoo.org/show/551393/12:52
ActionParsnipray1claw: do you have it? It will be something like  or similar12:53
ray1clawacmeinc1, iconfig or ifconfig or iwconfig?12:53
Metaphysicistdamo22, that would've been my assumption also, but since the drives themselves are not running in RAID, and we pull certain ones out (as in not in sequence all the time), the controller is just a pointer for us, and sometimes it doesn't stick.12:53
azbarcea_Muelli: $ sudo /bin/sh -x /usr/bin/mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-3.0.0-12-generic.new 3.0.0-12-generic 2>&112:53
azbarcea_/bin/sh: Can't open /usr/bin/mkinitramfs12:53
Muelliazbarcea_: /usr/sbin/12:53
ray1clawActionParsnip, my local ip is btw12:54
meetdo i need to install the recommended updates?12:54
damo22Metaphysicist, it might be worth pulling out all the drives, (labelling them of course beforehand) then put a random one into slot 0 and see if it changes when you put the same drive into slot 112:54
ray1clawActionParsnip, iconfig or ifconfig or iwconfig?12:54
azbarcea_Muelli: no shit ... the same thing, but differs gzip 1 (bash) to gzip 2 (dash) http://paste.pocoo.org/show/551394/12:55
damo22Metaphysicist, of course dont start the raid or you'll clobber data12:55
ActionParsnipray1claw: it's the inet addr:   adress12:55
Metaphysicistdamo22, right, thank you, I'll give it a try12:55
ActionParsnipray1claw: try both, why not :)12:55
Muelliwell azbarcea_. It also says "/usr/sbin/mkinitramfs: 1: cannot create : Directory nonexistent" now, doesn't it?12:55
ray1clawActionParsnip, its

delinquentmeYabden, so how will this influence my bootup .. I'd like GRUB to handle the boot13:40
Yabdenit won't influence it, it's a bit advanced and mostly used for specific things13:41
delinquentmeif i were installing it over a existing windows install13:41
delinquentmeohh ok13:41
delinquentmebut most of the time i'd want just good old /13:41

With debootstrap, chroot techniques etc. (like this tuto: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomizationFromScratch ) which use only the terminal?

azbarcea_Muelli: I think I did it 2012-02-13 ... but I can't recall why13:54
geirhaApparently part of klibc-utils package13:55

heizmannPlease :) is there a good, nice tutorial to learn how to create live systems? (basing on ubuntu)? With debootstrap, chroot techniques etc. (like this tuto: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomizationFromScratch ) which use only the terminal? I wish I could create a live system like this, but using cryptsetup (luks) and logical volume management (with lvm2). It is certainly possible, but how?14:20
kroonrsprashant_123456: i.e. the filder on the right saying "home"14:20
Chipzzzprashant_123456: that's why i suggest logging in with the recovery console and changing the password... that will make your root password whatever you change it to14:20

DarkStar1quick question, my vps only has 10.04 as the only ubuntu option to install but I need 11.10 (oneiric) in order to be able to install one of the openStack cloud tech. Can I install Lucid and do a dist-upgrade to oneiric?14:33
slingshotHi, I would like to install lightdm on my natty is it safe? Will I get the same appearance of lightdm as in oneiric?14:34
kroonrsprashant_123456: ok, so then it's not the login name that's a problem.  Can you on the terminal run "su root"14:34
prashant_123456kroonrs, yep14:34
kroonrsprashant_123456: does it prompt you for a password?14:35
prashant_123456kroonrs, yep14:35
danileigh79Every time I reboot my laptop (11.10) the wifi is disabled. I have to use sudo b43-fwcutter --unsupported -w /lib/firmware broadcom-wl-
ActionParsnipDarkStar1: wait until April and install Precise :)14:35
kroonrsprashant_123456: hold on a sec: are you actually logged in to your gui as root?14:35
danileigh79along with sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb & sudo modprobe b43 to reenble it, how do I make it enabled permanently14:35
ActionParsnipDarkStar1: if you have lucid and want Oneiric you will need to upgrade to Maverick, then natty then oneiric14:36
cristian_cI'm using Oneiric Ocelot 11.10, I purchased an asus WL-330gE. The device shields the connection to the router, unfortunately I have to first establish a direct connection to the router, and then the computer automatically snaps to a repeater. But if the PC tries to connect to the router via the repeater, it fails14:36
prashant_123456kroonrs, it says auth failure while i put password in it14:36
cristian_cthe network manager tries to connect several times, but it fails to connect. So I updated the firmware to the latest version, from version to, but unfortunately the problem persists14:36
kroonrsprashant_123456: are you actually logged in to your gui as root? if so, you would not be prompted for a password when you typed "su root", I think.14:36
cristian_cWhat can I do to solve the problem?14:36
meskarunedaniLEIGH79: sounds like you have power saving on14:37
ActionParsnipkroonrs: that would be a bad idea too14:37
slingshotHi, I would like to install lightdm on my natty is it safe? Will I get the same appearance of lightdm as in oneiric?14:37
prashant_123456kroonrs, but it requires password14:37
meskarunedanileigh79: powersaving will turn off the wifi card to save battery life14:37
yashshahprashant_123456: I'am also looking for the solution14:37
DarkStar1ActionParsnip: a 3 step upgrade. No other way?14:37
danileigh79meskarune: No, I mean everytime I reboot, Ubuntu loads without wifi support and I have to reenable it with the fwcutter and modprobe tools14:37
ActionParsnipDarkStar1: no, you have to stop at the next release, if you wait til April you can upgrade from LTS to LTS and get 12.0414:38
ActionParsnipprashant_123456: there is no root password, and the account is disabled...14:38
DarkStar1ActionParsnip: Lucid is 10.04 right? and from 10.04-11.10 I have to do 10.10, then 11.04 then 11.1014:38
kroonrsprashant_123456, yashshah: I have to go now, unfortunately.  It seems you are not logged in as root, so root can't be the correct login credentials for you.14:38
slingshot I would like to install lightdm on my natty ,is it safe? Will I get the same appearance of lightdm as in oneiric? Someone advice me !14:38
ActionParsnipDarkStar1: yes lucid == 10.0414:38
prashant_123456kroonrs, thanks for the help14:39
ActionParsnipDarkStar1: yes you need to upgrade through each release consquetively. Or just clean install Oneiric14:39
prashant_123456ActionParsnip, so what to do14:39
ActionParsnipprashant_123456: log in as your user and use that, when you need admin (root) access, use sudo. Its how the OS is designed14:39
yashshahprashant_123456: It is solved14:39
prashant_123456yashshah,  tell me how14:40
prashant_123456ActionParsnip, i have root password14:40
slingshotcan someone suggest whether should I install lightdm on natty? Is someone kind enough to answer?14:40
prashant_123456yashshah, ??14:40
yashshahprashant_123456: Your password contains any number?14:40
prashant_123456yashshah, yep14:41

ActionParsnipprashant_123456: its not supported here, and its not advised, or needed14:41
yashshahprashant_123456:Dun type with numpad, type it with the no. above the alphabets14:41
DarkStar1I thought 11.04 was LTS14:41
prashant_123456yashshah, ok14:41
ActionParsnipDarkStar1: 8.04, 10.04, 12.04   are LTS14:41
prashant_123456yashshah, let me try14:41
danileigh79DarkStar1: nope, 20.0414:41
ActionParsnipDarkStar1: the intermediate releases are not14:41
danileigh79DarkStar1: nope, 10.0414:41
yashshahprashant_123456: Okay! Good luck!14:41
slingshotuhh, what if something goes wrong? how can I get back to gdm then danileigh79?14:41
DarkStar1Ok thanks14:41
ActionParsnipprashant_123456: if you use the OS as it is intended, you will have fewer issues. Autologging in as root is REALLY dumb14:42
prashant_123456ActionParsnip, ok14:42

fidelrabbi1: an you start i.e. lightdm from terminal after boot?15:36
rabbi1Bubo: u have already removed gimp, remove the supporting files, and then update your apt-get and then select Gimp from the Syn Mgr, and install15:37
theadminAnyone, um, I remember we had a program in the repos which allowed to emulate most X events (mouse clicks, keypresses, window resizing, tons of stuff), it was really handy but I totally forgot the name, Google is of no help... Anyone can name it?15:37

rabbi1Bubo: Sorry, i got more problems :(15:37
rabbi1meskarune: when i get hit boot, i get a command prompt and then a blank screen, that's it15:38
meskarunerabbi1: is it the grub prompt or your system prompt?15:39
OerHekstheadmin, xdotool ?15:39
rabbi1meskarune: in my first boot, I got a login screen and a note saying "gnome was unable to install" something like this. I then restarted after that i just get blank screen .....15:39
theadminOerHeks: That's it! Thank you :)15:39
rabbi1meskarune: system prompt ...15:41
fidelrabbi1: i would test if i can jum to a terminal session (i.e. via ctrl+alt+f6) can try to login there. then check if x,loginmanager(lightdm or gdm most likely) are running - are startable etc15:41
kingfisher64anybody else know anything about getting printers to work in ubuntu? I've tried for days (not in a row thankfully) to get this working and I just can't.15:41

meskarunerabbi1: if you can log in, do you think you could type "startx" and see if x starts? I'm thinking maybe x is trying to load, and that is the black screen you are seeing15:43

VimanWhen I convert OGG to AVI using mencoder/ffmpeg, the quality drops real bad. Is there another way to do it? I can't edit OGG (ironical, isn't it?).17:15

Thurin1Viman: Tell ffmpeg to use a different quality...17:15

LintThurin1, it's not what?17:17
Thurin1Lint, it depends on how you tweaked your desktop and if you're using KDE/GNOME.17:17
Thurin1It's not impossible.17:17
danileigh79Viman: should be to change fps rate in the main conversion window17:17
Thurin1Well in Unity not sure.17:17
LintI have GTK dialogs17:17
kingfisher64MonkeyDust - thanks, if it looks like i'm running into a problems i'll try that.17:17

BobbyHi Everyone17:19
Thurin1You just add 'network' to your side panel.17:19
LintThurin1, add it from where?17:20
Thurin1In Gnome (not sure if Unity changed this) - you add network to side panel, and boom. Open files from network on browse.17:20
danileigh79When i type in "sudo b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware wl_apsta-" to reactivate my wifi, it says "Cannot open input file wl_apsta-" How can I fix this so I can make my wifi settings permanent?17:20
Thurin1When you click the open dialog, you see the panel to the left with destinations? Add network as a destination as well.17:20
VimanThurin1: changing fps didn't exactly do it. The screen still looks scrambled (I did a screencast)17:21
cautionhow do I set a system wide environmental var?17:21
Vimanfrom gtk-RecordMyDesktop17:21
Thurin1Viman: Yeah, not fps.. overall quality.17:22
LintThurin1, there's only Search, Recent, Home, Desktop, Filesystem, Floppy, CDROM, and folders from my profile, no network in sight17:22
Thurin1Just read the ffmepg manual, it tells you how to set parameters.17:22
clone1018Anyone in here have any experience with KDE and ATI, basically, I have my tri monitor setup perfect, except for one thing, the main monitor is set as my far left, when it needs to be my middle, anyone know how to change which is the primary with the aticonfig command or the control panel for it?17:22

Lintit is there in file manager, but not in open dialog :(17:23

User_007hello, i am running Natty AMD64, 2.6.38-13 kernel. I set my ufw to deny everything, but i allow in and out of ports 80 and 443. But the rules seems to not work, and all the ports seem to be blocked. (it don't work and nmap say it's all closed)17:25
Thurin1For now Right click an open space in the "Open File" section and select "Show hidden files". Then go to .gvfs and your remote share will be mounted there.17:26
Thurin1Keep in mind that the 'open' dialog is application specific, so for some you'll never be able to open across network.17:26
User_007what is my error?17:26
