MK`Weird question but, do any of you know if the (very) old DOS programs like SQ have been ported to linux?01:16
ActionParsniptruexfan81: lxde is nice and light :)01:16
agentgasmaskHi all. Does anyone know what the linux support for a card like this is? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681415057401:16
cfhowlettMK`   probably not ...01:16
ActionParsnipMK`: could run it in dosbox01:16
ActionParsnipMK`: what is SQ?01:16
MK`it was DOS's zip program back in the day01:17
zykotick9ActionParsnip: i'm quessing SQ = Space Quest?01:17

truexfan81i guess i left out i use dual monitors with xineramma01:17
damo22MK`, you have an old archive you want to uncompress?01:17
MK`damo22 yeah, I guess I will have to use dosbox and find the program somewhere01:18
ActionParsnipMK`: why not use unp or one of the gui apps if you want to manipulate archives.?01:18
truexfan81i like lxde but for some reason it won't work with my display setup01:18
_MarcusMK`: And nothing else will unzip it?01:18
damo22i used to use ARJ compression in dos01:18
MK`no :P it's ok, I will try dosbox.01:18
ActionParsniptruexfan81: XFCE, KDE and Gnome are all fine. XFCE is the lightest of those 301:19
trismMK`: SQ works nearly perfectly in scummvm01:19

_schism_can someone explain to me why we have to enter ./ to run some programs?  I have googled it quite a bit but cant seem to find an answer02:15
zykotick9_schism_: PATH related, ./ means from this location02:15
log_schism_: Because it specifies that you are running the program with that name in the current directory.02:15
totesmuhgoats_schism_: ./ refers to the current workin directory02:15
totesmuhgoatsit means you are executing something in your current path02:16
totesmuhgoatsif you want to execute anything from anywhere you can add it to the PATH variable02:16

totesmuhgoatszykotick9: oh?02:16
totesmuhgoatsoh i see02:16
totesmuhgoatsi misspoke02:16
_schism_so even if you are running it in a directory you still have to tell it your running it in the directory and that is how it does it then?02:17
log_schism_: Yes.02:17
totesmuhgoats_schism_: well you either have to specify an absolute path, or a relative path02:17
zykotick9_schism_: it is a BAD idea to have your current directory in your $PATH02:17
=== jelatta_away is now known as jelatta
totesmuhgoatsabsolute path would mean /usr/bin/whatevs02:17

_schism_I think I get it now.  And if more people would come in here when they have questions I don't think windoze would have any market share at all :)02:19

_schism_log if I wanted to be bold I would run arch :)02:28
tensorpuddingCube``, it's possible that the script is failing because sshd is already running02:28
_schism_zykotick9, I know I dont need it I just am thinking of poking at it to learn something new02:28
zykotick9_schism_: well, knock yourself out.  ksplice was aquired by Oracle, so it's on my "won't use" list.  good luck.02:29
satyanashKarmaon, You could place a lot of vertical windows and set mouse scroll to 1 horizontal pixel line per scroll, to give you smooth scrolling; however getting back to your earlier viewport would be difficult if you have infinite/lots of desktops..02:29

satyanashKarmaon, It's doable then.. but you want scrolling to work wherever your mouse pointer is, right? not just on the desktop ?02:34
TurtleSoupActionParsnip: is there a way to have rsync constantly running? I want to back up files from one hard drive to another, but only if they're added from this point on. I also want to be able to modify the files on one of the drives, so RAID isn't for me.02:34

Karmaonsatyanash: just on the desktop02:35
ActionParsnipTurtleSoup: cron a job to run every 10 mins or so, I believe dropbox does LAN sync too, worth looking into02:35
satyanashKarmaon, Hmm. It is doable, I believe you can change the virtual desktop settings in the control panel, and also set up mouse scroll switching from there too.02:37

evilgeeniusHi All.  I have tried installing Mint, Ubuntu and Debian, and after each install i get this error when the machine is restarted : "GRUB error: file not found."  .  After each install I have removed all partitions using GParted.      I have just run a tool in a LiveCd called boot-repair.  This tool attempted to repair grub but it failed.  This tool created this pastebin :  http://paste.ubuntu.com/846730/ .  Could someone have a look 02:37
Dr_willisevildaemon,  which OS are you wanting to handle grub?02:38
Pikkachuhi, where are synaptic custom filters stored?02:38
satyanashKarmaon, you will be better off asking other people how _exactly_ to do that, since I don't use the defaults that Ubuntu provides.02:38

DanDareHello. Whats the name of app for gnome or KDE (cant remember), that will show disposable wireless network in a icon?03:50
bludi'm trying to google it but, anyone know what i need to put in my mplayer config to force it to always use alsa instead of pulse?03:50
DanDareIt also informs network activity if its connected or disconnected in the taskbar03:51
cfhowlettDanDare   disposable wireless?  hmm.  In gnome that would be the indicator applet03:51
DanDarecfhowlett: but its used to make connections also, by clicking in the icon03:51
DanDareSo you choose a network and go03:51
invisigothiki seem to be having a common problem with an uncommon solution, if anyone happens to be not so busy, and with kung fu stronger than i, i could use the help.03:51
cfhowlettDanDare   right click to connect, right03:51
DanDarecfhowlett, yeah03:52
DanDarecfhowlett, you click to connect and it prompts for WPA key in a window03:52
cfhowlettDanDare   http://imagebin.org/19949703:53
cfhowlettDanDare   I'm on 10.04 so YMMV, but I just added this to my gnome panel...03:53
DanDarecfhowlett, I see. I think its not this one, thanks anyway. Im looking for some automated program to connect to wireless03:54
DanDarecfhowlett, the one i remember have animated icon while trying to connect03:54
cfhowlettDanDare   hmm.  Can't say as I'm familiar then.  What version of buntu are you on?03:55
AxsuulI'm using SSH keys to authenticate so I don't have a password, but when I need to issue a sudo command, what do I do when it asks for a password?03:56
DanDarecfhowlett, I think its network-manager-gnome03:57
cfhowlettDanDare   this thing?03:57
DanDarecfhowlett, im not sure now, but i think it isnt the one i talk about :p03:58
gfsdfgfdgCan I ask? Is Lubuntu recognised here? Is it an adopted child?03:58
cfhowlettgfsdfgfdg   lubuntu is supported to a degree...03:58
bludIs it just alsa=1 ?03:58
bludi'll try..03:58

liberalare any ops aware that user lorfus is randomly spamming links to people as they enter here?03:59
DanDarecfhowlett, im installing network-manager-gnome. I think thats what i look for04:00
bludnope, it's not alsa or noalsa04:00
liberalI assume it's as they enter here, because this is the only place where i have a common channel with him/her/it.04:00
bludanybody know how to force mplayer to always use alsa?04:00
cfhowlettDanDare   I seem to recall that wifi radar was the default in 7.04/7.10.  FWIW that pic I showed you is from network-manager with the same/better functionality04:00
cfhowlettDanDare   invoke from cli with nm04:01
bludyeah, lorfus spammed me with a link about 'jews did wtc"04:01
liberalblud: ~/.mplayer/conf (or something like that)04:01
bludliberal, yup but i don't know the variable04:01
DanDarecfhowlett, ok04:01
liberalblud: man mplayer is helpful with that04:02
cfhowlettDanDare   wait 1 - misinformation...04:02
liberali don't remember the config variable either. been too long since i used mplayer04:02
RenatoSilvaI've deleted grub.d and reinstalling grub-pc is not recreating them, how to make it?04:02

gfsdfgfdgI am very new to Ubuntu and Linux. I change because of security. I had only used Ubuntu for a month. I had learned some things and I like Ubuntu. However, the most important reason I changed, security, because I had not configured anything yet(had not configured firewall and don't know how to do it), does this mean someone can hack into my computer?04:04
hauxI'm experiencing so many problems right now with grub that I don't even know where to begin... I rearranged some SATA cables and tried to change which drive's mbr grub was installed on. Everything appeared to work fine until I messed with Grub Customizer and then Windows disappeared from the boot list. Then I uninstalled grub2 completely, reinstalled, and now the boot list will no longer even show up.04:04
hauxI don't know what to do...04:04
liberalblud: i don't know what freevo is, but good luck. maybe its just a matter of setting the preferred application in your window manager.04:05

psusiEruadan, either.. if the virtual machine resolution is lower than the real screen resolution, then it won't use the whole screen04:28
snickers_be back when hell freezes over04:28

tadpolei still dont know what to do after that XD04:35
ubottuTo just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin.

zykotick9vindav: how big is your SWAP partition?04:55
cfhowlettvindav   pretty sure that's a questionable idea but ask the channel...04:55
zykotick9vindav: you DON'T want to store anything there - doubt it's possible04:55
vindavzytotick9:  it is 232GB, used 135GB already for it.04:56
zykotick9vindav: that's not SWAP then (or i hope it isn't)04:57
zykotick9!tab > vindav04:57
ubottuvindav, please see my private message04:57
cfhowlettvindav   my general rule is Swap = 2X ram.  YMMV.04:57
Poindexter_Hey guys I am running a Virtual IRC  ubuntu client box. Just checking it out.04:58
urfr332g0cfhowlett, how much ram do you have?04:58
zykotick9cfhowlett: i'd suggest in modern times, 2X RAM is overkill - but it's easier then trying to explain Physical RAM + a little (if you want hibernate)04:59
cfhowletturfr332g0   4 gig ram/8gig swap.04:59
urfr332g0cfhowlett, ^^^^04:59
vindavzykotick9:  my /dev/sda5 HDD is my local drive;  /dev/sda1  is that small portion of 100MB; and the /dev/sda2 is I guess the SWAP area.05:00
cfhowlettzykotick9   out of a 500g drive, 8G seems a trivial sacrifice to the computing gods.05:00
vindavcfhowlett:  What is the purpose of SWAT ?05:00
ubottuvindav: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info05:00

zykotick9Mission: start with ~/.bashrc05:06

zykotick9Mission: it really depends what you want to configure however, other common settings might be in ~/.profile05:07

Missionit would be some place where you'd place something like...  cat art.txt05:10
zykotick9Mission: "cat art.txt" is a command with a file.  What do you really want to do?05:11
meiji11I have an ubuntu question of my own. often, when experiencing a problem (ie I can't connect to my WAP) I'll reboot and find that ubuntu has automatically routed around it (or so it would seem).. is there a way to check the changes it made without resorting to /var/log or dmesg, etc? it's great that ubuntu does it, but I would like to know how. with other linux distributions, problems of that nature just.. persist, until I fix them myself.05:11

zykotick9Mission: FYI i was wrong about MOTD, that doesn't show when you open a terminal05:19
riyonukOkay, I think I botched something up on my server. I can't ping anything. All I did was change dhcp to static (tutorial for getting a static ip) and now it wont work :(05:19

aBoundHello all, I was curious was there anyway to switch the Unity numbered shortcuts to key combination shortcuts?05:26
riyonukits in a vmware install though, so im not sure if I'm doing it the right way05:26
cfhowlettskegeek   adaptor would be the box part - read the label.  Should be of same manufacture as your computer.05:26
acceptancehiexpo: ok05:26
invisigothikdr_willis: i actually already did the driver by terminal code, following the instructions from launchpad05:26
overcluckerriyonuk: can you ping ?05:26
skegeekIt all came in the same box, I bought this laptop brand new.05:27
cfhowlettskegeek   OK that should answer that question....05:28
riyonukit says host unreachable05:29
riyonukthis is actually quite complicated to setup, but it's fun nontheless05:29
hiexpo? is that true that gnome 2 is out no longer supported ?05:29
skegeekI don't know why BIOS requires the  cord to be unplugged, although Toshiba did release an upgrade recently which I still haven't figured out how to download/install.05:29
cfhowletthiexpo   consider g2 dead05:29
overcluckerriyonuk: that means name servers aren't the problem05:29
zykotick9hiexpo: g2 is alive and well in debian stable, for another year or so05:30

riyonukOkay, now after doing this, hopefully my plan will work. Now I can SSH, through Terminal on my Mac, into my Virtual Machine, since it's set to a static IP, right? I've already installed openssh-server, and guides online aren't too helpful with adding pub keys06:01

chaos_zerolike a boss06:03
riyonukI know how to generate it, but no idea how to get it onto the virtual machine, or where it goes06:03
pnormanriyonuk: many routers have an option to assign some hosts (by MAC address) to always have the same IP06:03
pnormanriyonuk: the pub key goes into ~/.ssh/ and you'll have to either copy/paste, use scp, or something similar06:04

dipixdRounse, good, I have a Celeron on a desktop and it's not working when I installed ubuntu on it. pretty much good for a home file server06:30
WoCpoyntz if u have a mac emulator to use it in, try that... assuming the image is from a mac06:30
urfr332g0!ask > antisk3ptic06:30
ubottuantisk3ptic, please see my private message06:30
antisk3pticokay thank you06:31
dRounsedipix, well ubuntu runs fine, but i do a lot of music and watching youtube and i can hear it struggle, also i play minecraft and my desktop with 2 gigs of ram the the athlon ii is struggling, i think itd kill my celeron06:31
Blue1dRounse: what kind of card?06:31
poyntzWoC: I don't have a mac emulator :(. Basically I'm trying to covert a .dmg file to an .iso06:31
incognitoI have downloaded the PulseAudio volume control package, but my driver is the alsa driver for the ASUS motherboard06:31
dr_willisminecraft is not very optmized. ;)06:32
poyntzWoC: I want to put all the files on the .iso onto a pendrive and install Mac OS X on another partition06:32
dr_willispoyntz:  there may be dmg2iso converters for widows you could use in wie06:32
antisk3pticSo I am setting up an sftp server on a ubuntu 11.10 box. It will be on a network with Windows Server 2008, which is a domain controller. This sftp server will be strictly a file server, WinServ has Active Directory with Kerberos. I am used to setting up ssh with keys. I need to know how to set it up so users can authenticate with kerberos on a mainly windows based network and then get into06:32
antisk3pticubuntu box06:32
poyntzdr_willis: I don't have windows :(06:32
chris_anyone like to look to see whats wrong with a php script of mine(and maybe give me some pointers)06:33
iyank4incognito, seems chrome/firefox is directly using alsa, or the rhythombox that directly using alsa.. check the output setting of rythmbox, *i'm using banshee06:33
dipixdRounse, your daily use is pretty heavy, I'd suggest building a quad core06:33
poyntzdr_willis: I crashed my windows installation and now only have linux06:33
WoCpoyntz that sounds more like a osx question than ubuntu question06:33
dr_willispoyntz:  to boot from the pendrive? try just dd-ing the image to the flsdh06:33
dRounseBlue1 GeForce 6150SE nForce06:33
dr_willispoyntz:  windows tools often work in 'wine'06:33
incognitoiyank4: in my pulseaudio playback it doesn't show my chrome right now, and i have my game up, but it shows rhythmbox06:33
debugg3r I hate niggers.06:33
Ben64chris_: you know... nmap exists06:34
taipresprobably should add that to the bots06:34
dRounsedipix when i get the money im going to build one, but im going to build an htpc first then a desktop, then upgrade storage on my server06:34
chris_I dont know what nmap is06:34
antisk3pticI have figured how to go into sshd_config and set KerberosAuthentication to yes, but i basically need to know how to route the windows server to the ubuntu box so it knows which kerberos to authenticate with06:34
dr_willis!info nmap06:34
ubottunmap (source: nmap): The Network Mapper. In component main, is extra. Version 5.21-1.1 (oneiric), package size 1584 kB, installed size 7064 kB06:34
Ben64chris_: your php script can be replaced by "nmap -sP"06:35
taipresnmap is a scanner...an advanced one at that, lets you detect operating systems and other things06:35
Blue1dRounse: that sounds more like a video card06:35
Blue1dRounse: try:  lspci | grep Audio06:35
incognitoiyank4: how would i go about finding out if my chrome/firefox is directly accessing my alsa driver?06:35
dRounseoh you i thought you said video card06:35
Blue1dRounse: my bad I thought you had sound card issues.06:36
dRounsenVidia Corporation MCP61 High Definition Audio06:36
dRounsenoo i have more video card issues than sound card06:36

I often see line like - 'iwlagn 0000:03:00.0: Aggregation not enabled for tid 0 because load = 1' repeating in vt during which the wireless disconnects and then connects back. dmesg | tail - http://paste.ubuntu.com/846902/ . What exactly is causing disconnection and how can I fix it? Laptop uses - Intel Advanced-N6230 (2x2 agn + Bluetooth) whereas wireless router supports all b/g/n06:44
blub0xCan anyone provide help. I opened network tools and the device tab. The white box showing network adapters is too thin to see anything06:44
ch33zfor example I am running Ubunut 11.10 Server and when I try to do the Name Resolution it gives me command not found when adding this "sudo /etc/resolv.conf. "06:44
zykotick9ch33z: "sudo nano /etc/resolve.conf"06:45
ch33zI am trying to add numerous websites to the webs server06:45
ch33zi go there06:45
ch33zits blank..06:45
FloodBot1ch33z: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.06:45

zykotick9ch33z: sorry typo resolv.conf06:45
ch33zjust adding a basic website or websites06:45
ch33zbasic html06:45
Ben64html isn't in resolv.conf06:46
ch33zi have 2 basic html sites i want to upload06:46
Ben64that has nothing to do with resolv.conf06:46
ch33zbut, in order to get those sites done, I suppose I need to get DNS, Apache, and SSH set up correct?06:46
blub0xCan anyone provide help. I opened network tools and the device tab. The white box showing network adapters is too thin to see anything.06:46
cfhowlettsunshine   ?  confirm this is a dual boot?06:46
Blue1you might want to use ftp06:46
chris__my problem was that my script was not working06:46
ch33zyes, Blue1 what do i type in the ftp client though?06:46
Ben64apache yes, ssh is really really handy, and dns isn't necessary at all06:46
Ben64ch33z: the ip address or the hostname of the server06:47
Blue1ch33z: well you need to know the name of the ftp server, and then a userid/password as a mininum06:47
ch33zBen64 so "server name, user name, and password?06:47
Blue1ch33z: yes, what client ru using?06:48
ch33zand transmit either are fine.06:48
Ben64sftp is usually easier to get set up06:48
blub0xBueler, Bueler, anyone, anyone.  I opened network tools and the device tab. The white box showing network adapters is too thin to see anything06:48
Blue1ch33z: not one I am fam. with.  but you need those regardless of the client.06:48
ch33zalright well is SFTP already set up on ubuntu server by default?06:49
Ben64if you have ssh running06:49
ch33zi believe i do06:49
Ben64chris__: nmap -sP
Blue1ch33z: what is it your are trying to do?06:50
ch33zjust upload basic html files06:50
ch33zthats it06:50
ch33znothing crazy06:50
ch33zi would like to host 2 sites I have 9 static ips but, if I can get up one site for now that would be great.06:51
Ben64just get a scp or sftp client and go for it06:51
Blue1ch33z: any ftp client will sork06:51
blub0xCan anyone provide help. I opened network tools and the device tab. The white box showing network adapters is too thin to see anything06:51
chris__Thats awesome, so much faster06:51
bazhangblub0x, please dont repeat every minute06:51
ch33zalso when I start SSH on the server it says this " could not load host key rs, dsa, and ecdsa"06:51
Blue1ch33z: well you need to have the apache server installed for that -- and most isp's block incoming http (port 80) requests.06:52
blub0xSo what should i do then06:52
tuxcanflyHi all, I'm on Kubuntu 11.10, kernel 3.0.0-16-generic, bcm4313 chipset, wl drivers06:52
ch33zi have a business class internet class so they dont block any ports06:52
ch33zand apache2 is installed06:52
tuxcanflyand I'm trying to change the default IP assigned by network manager on a share connection06:52
bazhangblub0x, be patient. try askubuntu.com while you wait, repeat in 10-15 minutes or so06:52
Blue1ch33z: iirc the default location is /var/www06:52
tuxcanflythe default is and I want to change the IP to 169.x06:53
tuxcanflywould that be possible?06:53
Ben64but if you want more than one site on it, shouldn't use /var/www06:53
Blue1Ben64 correct06:53
ch33zo Blue106:53
ch33zwhich do I use then?06:53
zyracksisSo I turned on my machine today, all my desktop icons were blank and my top menu bar was white. I made sure I had the right drivers and tried to change the theme, but no luck06:53

zyracksisScreenshot here http://img571.imageshack.us/img571/6158/screenshotat20120218175.png06:53
chris__you could probally do this in a split second, how would I take the ips and turn them in an array06:54
Blue1i haven't done apache in ages -- I do all my web hosting thru godaddy - far far easier06:54
ch33z"apache2: could not reliabily determine the servers fully quallified domain name using for ServerName"06:54

ZorroTwas it working before the upgrade?07:11
brightsparkmattyf, alias?07:11
dr_willismattyf:  make a script. or alias07:11
incognitono i havent zorrot, just firefox, and then i went to chrome07:11
Blue1hartley: okay.  I have never seen a *nix system w/o /var/log/messages07:11
zyracksisBlue1: "gdm: unrecognised service"07:11
ZorroTso it did not work in chrome or firefox.07:11
mattyfsorry, am new to linux, will search for alias now - thanks!07:11
incognitoand i didnt try before the upgrade, i just knew 9.10 was outdated so i had to update07:11
Blue1zyracksis: what version of ubuntu?07:11

petroidНеподскажите чем отлечается дестрибутив убунту 11.10 от 12.04?07:12
ZorroTok, so you've done like a big dist upgrade07:12
ZorroTi saw something about your problem for ubuntu 9.107:12
incognitoyes, from 9.10 to 10.04 lts07:12
Blue1zyracksis: okay let me think what the gdm is called in 11.1007:12
dr_willis11.10 uses lightdm by default07:12
bazhang!upgrade | petroid07:12
ubottupetroid: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade07:12

Blue1dr_willis: thanks07:13
bazhangpetroid, its english here, russian in #ubuntu-ru07:13
brightsparkmattyf, "alias node=nodejs".  If you want it to persist across login, put it in your .bashrc07:13
ZorroTand sometimes those can be trickier than they look :-)07:13
ZorroTmattyf: rockin' node?07:13
incognitozorrot: my exact problem lol07:13
cfhowlettbazhang   what you see that tells you ru - all I see is zapgat salad...07:13
ZorroTmattfy: for a good time, call couchdb :-)07:13
zyracksisBlue1: Just tried lightdm, no luck there either07:14
Blue1zyracksis: so you willneed to restart that -- sudo service lightdm restart -- you should have to relogin, and that should re-create the files.07:14
mattyfthanks brightspark! yeah ZorroT - learning nodejs, expressjs, jade (haml) and sass today07:14
bazhangcfhowlett, his .ru host for one07:14
mattyfand couchdb apparrently ;)07:14
Blue1zyracksis: you can try gdm3 but I am 99% sure thats debian07:14
incognitoZorroT: one second, i'm going to have a look at it.07:14
cfhowlettbazhang   ah.07:14
petroidDo not tell me what  11.10 to 12.04?07:14
ZorroTmattyf: couchdb uses json objects over http as the interface. so you can bump straight from node and get native answers -- no futzing with interpreting database-ese.07:14
zyracksisBlue1: LightDM restarted, but it didnt fix the problem07:15
bazhangpetroid, I gave you a link on how to upgrade07:15
Blue1zyracksis: did you select gnome when you logged back in?07:15

apt-getterI only get one value.08:44
smegzorI have a strange problem with Ubuntu 10.04 and 11.10.  On 2 computers if you switch users, you sometimes get a black screen and nothing else happens.  Anyone else have that happen often?08:45

apt-getterit gives me "(-9,222,31)" amd I want to have the three numbers separated.08:45

crackerjackza while back i installed ubuntu using wubi... i had a power failure when trying to upgrade ubuntu and i was unable to boot so i decided to reinstall linux.. there is only one problem though i can't mount /dev/sda3 to /mnt/nixold.. i need to back up my files before i reinstall linux but it won't let me mount the partition that my files are on :/08:54
crackerjackzi am currently booted into linux via the live cd...08:55

brightsparkapt-getter, just a minute; I want to test out the solution I'm using09:01
crackerjackztheadmin: it says unable to locate package 'pastebinit'09:01

apt-getteraccel1 is x, accel2 is y, and accel3 is z?09:05
theadmincrackerjackz: You're typing things wrong then -- pastebinit is in the repos09:05
brightsparkapt-getter, yes.09:05
crackerjackztheadmin: apt-cache search pastebinit returns no results09:06
brightsparkapt-getter, assuming the coordinates it gives are in the order (x,y,z)09:06

theadmincrackerjackz: See, we haz09:07
crackerjackztheadmin: i think the reason its not showing up is because im on the live cd?09:07
meganerdtheadmin: did he apt-get update first?09:07
crackerjackzmeganerd: yes09:07
theadmincrackerjackz: That wouldn't make much sense, unless... Do you have the universe repo enabled?09:07
brightsparkapt-getter, can you confirm or disconfirm that your accelerometer data is ending up where you want it?09:07

brightsparkapt-getter, glad to help.  Goodnight09:09
apt-getterI am in Germany, it's morning 'lol'09:10
crackerjackztheadmin: it returns no output... what does that mean?09:11
theadmincrackerjackz: Means you don't have it enabled09:11
crackerjackztheadmin: does it need to be enabled for me to install pastebinit?09:11
theadmincrackerjackz: Yeah, or else... Well, let's figure out a way without pbi because it's annoying to handle repos via cli if you don't know how to lol09:11
crackerjackztheadmin: well if i can direct the output to a text file then i could scp it to my webserver or something09:12
theadmincrackerjackz: wget http://wgetpaste.zlin.dk/wgetpaste-1 -O wgp && chmod +x wgp && sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/nixold | ./wgp09:12

playitHey I have a list of things and need to make a layout of the pros and cons of each visually in an easy to see manner..09:17
shadowh511playit: use Libreoffice Presentation or a document with a table09:17
crackerjackztheadmin: its not letting direct the output to the text file.. i tried sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/nixold | errormesg i also tried sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/nixold >>errormesg.txt09:18
shadowh511have the bullets be X-marks and checkmarks09:18
playitI was using VYM to make a map of different choices they could make and it was looking alright but when i went to export it to html it was way too wide09:18
playitthats a good idea shadow511 im good with those just was looking for a more robust solution09:19
theadmincrackerjackz: Are you in a sane directory? That is, do you have permissions to write the the current directory?09:19
shadowh511playit: I'm sorry I can't help you further, I've never run into a need for something like that before ^^;;09:19
playitor the quickest way to through together something professional .. I liked how in VYM I could have pictures that my clients can click and it takes them to web references etc..09:19
playitthanks for the help09:20
crackerjackztheadmin: yup its just the home directory09:20
playitill look into what you mentioned as well09:20
theadmincrackerjackz: Weird...09:20
theadmincrackerjackz: Ah, actually, NOT weird09:20
crackerjackztheadmin: btw i tried the wget paste thing and it complained about the -0 (it didn09:21
theadmincrackerjackz: sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/nixold 2>&1 | tee file09:21
shadowh511playit: kay, glad to help ^_^ Mindmapping might be better anyway. Have you looked into UML? it's for code, but it could be fedangled to make the diagrams you want09:21
playitno I haven't I'll check into it09:21
playitvym seemed kind of clunky to me09:22
playitthe HTML output wasn't what I was expecting .. Not sure how they got standard widths and it was hard to layout as well09:22
crackerjackztheadmin: okay that time it worked but it only directed the output of the last line it didn't show the whole error message09:23
barnexHello. I can't kill process on 11.10 and consider reporting a bug. Can someone tell me what should I include in this report to make it useful?09:23
shadowh511playit: yeah, some of the fringe cases in FOSS don't get worked out the cleanest, it's a know issue09:23
theadmincrackerjackz: Huh. Now that's weird.09:23
shadowh511barnex: what process?09:23
theadminbarnex: Run: ubuntu-bug compiz09:23
theadminbarnex: It will include most info you'll need, you'll only have to describe what happens09:23
barnexDon't I need some info about kernel? It seems to be the kernel problem.09:24
playitthanks for the uml selection.. I would of never knew how to google for that09:24
crackerjackztheadmin: basically it says can't find ext2 file system on sda3 can't find ext4 file system on sda3.. bogus number or reserved sectors. you must specify the file system type09:24
playitthats precisely the kind of solutions im looking for09:24
barnexTop says that compiz is in 'R' state09:24
barnexand it just ignores kill -909:24
crackerjackz(when ever i try to mount it that is)09:24
theadmincrackerjackz: Try doing that.09:24
theadmincrackerjackz: What FS is on it?09:24
crackerjackztheadmin: i'm not sure it was so long ago... i installed linux using wubi though09:25
playitdo you or anyone else know of any other solutions? Im going to further research UML I just want to make sure theres not an easier direction to take09:25
playitUML looks promising for what I want to do09:25
theadmincrackerjackz: Oh, but uh, then it'd be on your Windows partition in some file09:25
bc81barnex: you might try switching window managers (metacity --replace, compiz --replace)  just a suggestion09:25
prashant_123456ssh client says access denied dont know why ?09:26
crackerjackztheadmin: there is a seperate partition called linux with some wubi stuff in it.. but i don't see my files09:27
theadmincrackerjackz: You need to mount the actual wubi drive, it's in a file called "root.disk"09:27
anonymousinukhiya, can anyone help me with changing the default channel on my wlan0/ mon0  antenna?09:28
crackerjackztheadmin: how do i search all mounted partitions for the file root.disk09:28
theadmincrackerjackz: sudo find -type f -iname 'root.disk'09:28
=== digital is now known as Guest3560
crackerjackztheadmin: it returned no output09:29
theadmincrackerjackz: Well, then the partition isn't mounted09:29
crackerjackztheadmin: i think it might work this time... i was in the home directory when i ran that command09:30
crackerjackzi cd'd to / and now its taking longer for the command to return something so im guessing its searching09:30
theadmincrackerjackz: Oh, pardon me: sudo find / -type f -iname 'root.disk'09:30
theadmincrackerjackz: Or yeah, cd to /09:30
barnexbc81: Hmm, that might work, but i have no idea how to do it - I currently have 2 guest sessions running compiz at 100%, and I'm not logged in neither of them.09:31
crackerjackztheadmin: okay i found it.. it says /.media/Linux/ubuntu/disks/root.disk09:32
barnexI can su to those guest, but then when I try metacity --replace I get Window manager error: Unable to open X display :009:32
OerHeksanonymousinuk, change the default channel, in your Wifirouter.09:32
theadmincrackerjackz: Great, that's the one. Now: sudo mount -o loop /media/Linux/ubuntu/disks/root.disk /mnt/nixold09:32
bc81barnex: how are you trying to kill compiz?09:32
barnexsudo kill -9 1538409:33
barnexwhere 15384 is the pid09:33
anonymousinukthnks, Oheks09:33
bc81barnex: ok, how about killall compiz?09:33
theadminbarnex: But compiz may have multiple processes... "sudo pkill compiz" will work better09:33
anonymousinuki just assumed it was the program controlling the channel !09:34
barnexwell, even if it does have multiple processes, shouldn09:34
barnexwell, even if it does have multiple processes, shouldn't the 15384 be killed anyways?09:34
crackerjackztheadmin: my files!!!! i love j00!!!09:34
theadmincrackerjackz: lol, uh, thanks I guess :D09:34
crackerjackztheadmin: thank you so much09:34
barnexpkill and killall haven't worked09:35
theadmincrackerjackz: np, if you said you're using wubi in the first place you'd have saved me a lot of time :D09:35
meganerdbarnex: have you tried restarting X?09:35
barnexI did sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm restart09:36
barnexI believe it restarts X server as well?09:36
theadminbarnex: Yeah it should09:36
crackerjackztheadmin: actually i did mention wubi in the very first sentence i posted here09:37
theadmincrackerjackz: Ah guess I skipped it, sorry09:37
crackerjackztheadmin: its all good you helped me plus even though we went through some crap tryin to figure it out you taught me a couple of things i didn't know so not only did you help me get my files but you taught me a couple of things that i didn't know09:38
bc81barnex: or what about killall -9 compiz09:38
theadmincrackerjackz: It's no problem09:38
biggi_matYou should charge him.09:39
barnexbc81: doesn't work.09:39
crackerjackz^ actually i think some of you guys should make money answering peoples questions09:39
crackerjackzyour knowledge is worth a lot09:39
barnexWell, It seems like the program isn't the problem - all of them return 0, so kernel seems to accept the signal09:39
barnexand something is wrong on the kernel part?09:40
bc81barnex: the answer here says you can't kill compiz when the Launcher or Unity is running, maybe that's the problem? http://askubuntu.com/questions/47022/how-to-kill-unity-panel-unity-launcher09:41
barnexbc81: hmm, I'm not sure what are the process names of Unity and Launcher, but "ps ax | grep -i unity" lists no processes09:43
meganerdbarnex: assuming that you are using the default, have you tried shutting down X?  /etc/init.d/lightdm stop09:44
barnexI don't really understand how ubuntu manages multiple users09:45
barnexmeganerd: yes09:45
barnexit seems to do some deep magic, pausing all users program when I switch users?09:45
hydrox24barnex: not sure about that, although I never use the switch user funstion.09:45
barnexI noticed that when I switch users while playing music, the music stops09:46
theadminbarnex: pulseaudio runs in a user-based manner, it won't play anything while you're not in the right user session09:46
GhrimI have a usb microphone, how do I set it up?09:47
=== iqpi|off is now known as iqpi|on
hydrox24barnex: that wouldnt be pausing processes, just pulseaudio doing some muting.09:48
tomodohow do I turn off compiz?09:48
warfarenGhrim: should be pretty straightforward. plugin it in and select it in the sound properties09:49
warfarentomodo: at the login screen i think you can select gnome instead from a drop down menu09:49
tomodooh, thank yo9u09:49
warfareni dunno if they still have it in the latest release though09:50
tomodothe menu bar in a program (racket) is not showing up.. looks like this http://i.imgur.com/0ApdG.png09:50
tomodoany ideas how to fix it?09:50
warfarenoh wait, my mistake. you said compiz not unity tomodo09:50
theadmintomodo: It's Unity's fault, trying to use globalmenu with your app and failing :/09:51
tomodoI was able to turn off unity09:51
warfarensorry im confused. that would be desktop effects i think09:51
theadmintomodo: Remove "appmenu-gtk" and "appmenu-qt" if you have those09:51
tomodohow do I turn off globalmenu?09:51
crackerjackztheadmin: i know this is a little off topic for this channel but by chance would you happen to know where mysql databases get saved by default (like say you run one of those .php install scripts and it sets up the tables and all of that for you) im looking for the db for vxguestbook not sure where its at though09:51
theadmincrackerjackz: Nope no idea09:51
tomodoI am removing them with synaptic09:52
tomodothat didn't solve the problem09:52
tomodomaybe I need to log out and back in09:53
tomodothanks for your help, I'll go see what happens09:53
jaciJaci Poli09:54
krishguys, on oneiric, I dont get unity menus on vnc.. I get some file, edit menu on the top.. any solutions?09:56
tomodothanks for the suggeswtion but when I removed the menubar programs it still has the same bug09:59

Zizzua lot10:07
Ben64what evidence do you have to support that theory10:08
Zizzuthe best evidence is he changed my admin password and modified grub, i cant login10:08
Zizzuthen a 24h on 24 ddos on the adsl10:09
Ben64ubuntu doesn't have a root password by default10:09
zmpwhois zmp10:10
Zizzuwhat that mean, he just change the password, every time im on linux this guy enter it and block the system so i cant use it10:10
Ben64check the logs then, it'd show if someone was accessing you10:10
OerHeksZizzu, hard to believe, look in your room for camera's10:11
tomodowhich logs?10:11

Ben64its not a hacker10:11
ubuntutheadmin: ty10:11

Zizzui am the only one which use the computer it is my computer in my room in my home10:12
Zizzui have something in the hardware which work like a signal10:13
OerHeksZizzu stop using wireless keyboard .10:13
hydrox24Zizzu: and what, every time you use ubuntu the password get's changed?10:13
Zizzuhappened 2 times10:13
hydrox24Zizzu: Yes, are you using a BT keyboard?10:13
hydrox24Zizzu: and is you password long and secure?10:14
syscomerci spyro , j'ai reboot la machine car rien ne fonctionnais10:14
hydrox24Zizzu: also, do you know if you have ssh installed and/or the openssh server running?10:14
barnexZizzu: maybe it's something drive related? I imagine it's possible that every new ubuntu installation with the same partition table uses the same place on the hdd to store the password data10:14

barnexit may appear like your password changes?10:15
barnexbut hardware virus isn't more probable :P10:15
Zizzuits not about the password only its about a group of hackers showing they can find me everywhere i connect and root my computer when they want10:15

MyrttiZizzu: it could be your keyboard that's broken.10:15
OerHeksZizzu is it raining outside ? nice day to troll a channel.10:15
Zizzuthere are, after the password changed i format again and put windows 7, i connect to a game a guy called me and say: NOW U PLAY HE GOOD10:16

MonkeyDustSpyros  that suggesting that command is a no-no here10:17

Spyroswhat do you mean10:18
Zizzuim on windows 7 now cant use linux10:18
barnexZizzu: well, don't take this as a personal attack, but if you really aren't trolling and you agree that it's probably impossible...10:18
zambahow can i check if my system is running on s-ata or ide?10:18
oratedIs nomodeset option default in grub?10:18
Ben64Zizzu: this is ubuntu support, not paranoid windows 7 support10:18
theadminorated: Nope, why would it be?10:18
barnexMaybe it's not computer issue, but mental health one?10:18
hydrox24Zizzu: I would suggest that you look into encrypting your HDD and/or look for suspicious vans hanging around outside your house if you are concerned about security10:18
SpyrosMonkeyDust, what do you mean?10:19
Ben64Spyros: sudo -i isn't recommended10:19
theadminBen64: How come? That's the recommended way to get the root shell10:19
Ben64it can be dangerous if the user doesn't realize what it does10:19

barnexthe whole login/profile issue isn't really that obvious10:20
barnexI just recently learned it because i had to for ruby version manager10:21

ikoniaZizzu: hi, this channel is for ubuntu support only, can you please keep to that topic10:24
BuboCan anyone help me install gimp 2.7.4? compile and install? I asked on #gimp but nobody seems to be able to help me10:25
ikoniaBubo: why can you not use the version that is in the repo10:25
Zizzui know this channel is about ubuntu but this virus is the best virus ever and ubuntu is not immune to this kind of virus u know10:25
BuboBecause of unmet dependencies.. people have been trying to help me (here in this channel) many times and nobody seems to be able to fix it10:25
ikoniaZizzu: unless your question is an ubuntu support question, please keep it out of this channel10:25
barnexBubo: why compile? There seems to be ppa for it?10:25
Bubothe repo gives me 2.7.510:25

ubottuBubo: Doesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.10:26
MyrttiBubo: and why do you need it?10:26
ikoniaBubo: unless you are using external repos / PPA's the version in the ubuntu repo will not complain of failed dependencies10:26
BuboI said i have asked here for help many times, and few people tried to help me but i end up formatting10:26

ikoniaBubo: do you have any 3rd party repos or PPA's ?10:27

BuboI searched on google, and some other people have been having the same problem with 2.7.510:28
MonkeyDustBubo  what is being said is: remove the PPA's to solve the problem(s)10:28
ikoniaBubo: please focus on what I'm saying10:28
ikoniaMonkeyDust: that is not what is being said10:29
ikoniaMonkeyDust: removing a PPA at this time will do nothing10:29

shadowh511ppa-purge should remove the broken dep'd gimp10:29
oratedtheadmin: Afaik setting "nomodeset" disables KMS which would end up giving VT's native resolution? I only wanted to confirm as I forgot the what original grub option was after recent changes. Could you link me to any article describing all the grub options?10:29

BuboYou add a repository10:31
rcsheetsWhat's the correct way to change the PATH system-wide? Looks like /etc/login.defs but when I make changes there, I'm not seeing them reflected in new logins.10:31
Buboand it gives you the latest unstable which is now 2.7.5 (doesnt work)10:31
alkisgThank you shadowh511, I'll check that too10:31
ikoniaBubo: ok - to that repository will be downloading dependencies that are causing the conflict10:31
Bubo2.7.4 worked and installed easily10:31
shadowh511alkisg: no problem10:31
theadminalkisg: I... kind of understand what you're talking about. Hm, okay then, fluxbox?10:31

=== SpaceMonkey is now known as zehshi
BuboYes but 2.7.4 didnt had any problems, but 2.7.5 does10:32
ikoniaBubo: if the package is causing conflicts you need to either a.) stop using the external repos b.) conact the owner of those repos and ask them to resolve them for you10:32
alkisgbarnex: ...it's not very pretty but it does the work :)10:32
Buboand they changed to 2.7.5 in the repository 2 weeks ago i think10:32
meganerdBubo: yes, and the gimp PPA broke something10:32
shadowh511Bubo: you installed unstable software, it eats children from time to time10:32
ikoniaBubo: we cannot fix external packages - contact the package maintainers10:32
barnexalkisg: well, that's bluetile - basically xmonad preconfigured to play nicely with gnome10:32
BuboI downloaded 2.7.4 version and i asked if someone can help me compile it10:32
meganerdBubo: that is the very nature of unstable, updates break things10:32
Bubothat version is working on ubuntu 11.10 without any problems10:32
ikoniaBubo: that is a terrible idea10:33
barnexI used it for a while and then moved to xmonad with my own config, it's really awesome.10:33
meganerdBubo: not really on topic, and probably more effort than it is worth.10:33
theadminHm... I really should try xmonad too10:33
ikoniaBubo: I strongly advise you to talk to the gimp package maintainers and ask them for assitance, you will probably get reasonable help10:33
oratedtheadmin meganerd: I said it wrong.. those are linux options. Grub only helps them to pass10:34
barnextheadmin: yes you should :-). Editing haskell configs when you don't know first thing about haskell is painful though10:34
theadminbarnex: Ah... hm, then I'd rather stick to i3 where configs are a pretty obvious language :D10:34
BuboOk thank you10:34
meganerdorated: then the kernel source is probably  where you want to look.  There are a lot of options10:35
oratedmeganerd: Yes, searching. Thanks10:35
barnextheadmin: what language is that?10:35
theadminbarnex: Not sure really, but it's just understandable just from looking at the default config10:36
barnexoh ok, so it's more like a proper config, not a program?10:36
barnexI really like the idea of programming my config10:36
barnexso I can change the bindings depending on layout for instance10:36
theadminbarnex: Ah... Hm, say, do you know any wms which would use Perl and/or Ruby for configs?10:37
barnexor the desktop or the running apps10:37
shadowh511awesome would be better then10:37
shadowh511it uses a lua config file10:37
meganerdorated: there is a Documentation folder in the kernel source10:37
barnextheadmin: I used wmii few years ago, don't know if it's still maintained10:37

patrunjelHi. Do bash scripts get outputed sequentially? I have a script that compiles some code, outputs whatever, to let me know the compiling is done, so I can test the speed of whatever algorithm I'm trying, and I wanna know if the echo is outputted exactly when my compiling is done, or if it's loaded into a  buffer and outputed when my whole script finishes executing11:37
_ravenMonkeyDust i need something like a graph11:38
theadminpatrunjel: The output is produced as soon as the "echo" program is called pretty much11:39
patrunjeltheadmin, ok, thanks :D11:39

tMHppl, once upon a time I have seen (and even installed!) slackware with enlightment version 6 or 7, the version that has some steam-punk visuals, yet it has sound scheme with nice effects like - closing window via pressing [x] button gave blast sound etc. does somebody remember this enlightment version , ever used, and know how to install it on xubuntu instead of xfce?:)12:01

ubottuThe default interface in Ubuntu 11.04 is !Unity. To switch back to regular !GNOME: log out, click your username, click the Session box at the bottom of the screen, and select "Ubuntu Classic". For 11.10, see !notunity12:08
ubottuUbuntu 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 !classic12:08
ubottuGNOME is the default !desktop environment on Ubuntu up to 10.10 To install it from Kubuntu or Xubuntu, type « sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop » in a !terminal.12:08

AbhijitBubo, after install w7 in the blank space you need to boot into live cd and from there you need to reinstall the grub15:10

legendi have question for you15:13
hydesteri think i broke crypttab.  i cleaned it up using tabs instead of spaces, at least that is all i think i did.  now on boot it never prompts for password and update-initramfs doesn't seem to make my changes seen on boot.  any suggestions on how fix this?  the closest i thought i got was dpkg-reconfigure cryptsetup since it'll look at crypttab, but just initramfs prompt on boot after logo screen hangs a bit15:13
bazhanglegend, then ask the channel15:14

beastysmall question15:23
beastyi have 16gb of ram in my system15:23
beastybut for some reason ubuntu shows only 3.515:23
Kaizer@ Shedevil. With a single 4gig stick it next upgrade could be 815:23
BlouBloubeasty: Yes, install Ubuntu-6415:23
bazhangbeasty, 64bit system installed?15:23
Shedevilyou need 64 bit15:23
beastyBlouBlou: no this is a 32 bit system15:24
LjLbeasty: a 32-bit system with 16GB of RAM?15:24
LjLbeasty: that seems unlikely.15:24
BlouBloubeasty: It won't detect 16 then, you need the 64-bits edition15:24
bazhanginstall the pae kernel then beasty15:24
beastybazhang: ?15:24
BlouBlou!pae | beasty15:25
ubottubeasty: To use more than ~3.2GB RAM on a 32bit system you can install the PAE-enabled kernel. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE for more info15:25
bazhangLjL, it only shows 3.515:25
LjLbazhang: right, but when instructed to install 64-bit Ubuntu, he said it's a 32-bit system. i have my doubt a pure 32-bit system would have 16GB of RAM.15:25
Jacruthhi there, how could I know If I can use special setting on my video card, for example ARB_SYNC?15:25
Shedevilwhy is he using 32-bit OS though, downloaded the wrong .iso by accident or has a 32 bit proc?15:25

Shedevilwell I've been reading about how to get the sound from the client comps onto the host comp over LAN as well15:36
Nullifi3dnever experimented with that :P15:36
Shedeviland I think pulseaudio will do that15:36
Shedevilbut I want the host machine to be windows15:36
Nullifi3dwhy not just use a 3.5mm cable?15:37
Nullifi3dspeaker out > line in15:37
Shedevilthat would work if I only had one client comp... but I have 315:37
Shedevilor could I daisy chain them....?15:37
Nullifi3dyeah i tihnk you could15:37
Nullifi3djust make sure all your levels are the same going across15:38
Shedevilso line out from the 2nd PC would be carrying 1st and 2nd PC audio to line in on 3rd host PC?15:38

Nullifi3dlol no it wont15:39

airtonixSmashingX: how did you install the program in the first place ?16:13
SmashingXzykotick9: so just the database, but to update the program?16:13
airtonixSmashingX: software center? ppa? a zip file? a tar ball?16:13
zykotick9SmashingX: "sudo apt-get upgrade" will upgrade everything16:13
SmashingXairtonix: software center16:13
airtonixSmashingX: then you won't get a new version.16:14
matt__thanks zykotik9, that did it. I have a broadcom BCM430616:14
monohedronubuntu at devices that are no drives16:14
svgI'm having troubles installing Ubuntu 11.04 on a Mac Book Pro. Using the alternate cd, when setup starts up, it fails to recognize the cd(rom) and to mount it.16:14
zykotick9SmashingX: technically my last statement was a lie - "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" will upgrade everything (same as GUI update manager)16:14
SmashingXok that was what my followup question was about16:14
monohedroni know how to mount a drive but how could i take a speaker along or a mouse or a  keyboard16:14
airtonixSmashingX: you would either need to look if the filezilla provides a ppa with the latest version of research how to install from tar.gz16:14
airtonixor *16:14
SmashingXairtonix: why it has to be such a pain to upgrade a software :(16:15
airtonixmonohedron: speaker and keyboard are possible but handled by two other programs/protocols16:15
monsterripperhi there, how do install cinnamon on ubuntu , exactly ???16:15
airtonixSmashingX: as opposed to what?16:15
SmashingXairtonix: other OS?16:15
_ravenwhere is the rhythmbox-cache? (need to reset imported files))16:15
zykotick9monsterripper: when others have asked, they've typically gotten a "not supported" reply, but i don't personally have any idea... (i don't even really know what cinnamon is, is that mint's new interface?)16:16
airtonixSmashingX: windows doesn't have apt-get upgrade, macosx doesn't have the massive library of apt-get repos.16:16
monohedronairtonix, isn't there a standard way of 'mounting' devices across machines ?16:16
monsterripperzykotick9: yep...16:16
zykotick9monohedron: NFS for file systems16:16
airtonixSmashingX: yes. nfs.16:16
SmashingXto update you just have to download the newest version, install it and it will automatically replace the old version16:17
airtonixmonohedron: you may also appreciate autofs16:17
monohedronzykotick9, don't mind file systems i kno how to do that16:17
monohedronairtonix, hmm let me have a look16:17
SerythHm, how can I change admin accounts? I wnat to delete an account, but I can't because it says that that user is the only system admin O.o16:17
zykotick9monohedron: for other devices, i don't thik it's possible16:17
airtonixSmashingX: thats one program... wait till you have to manage 100s of computers at once... now repeat your single action again 100 times.16:17
airtonixSmashingX: seriously... installing and managing software on linux is alot easier than windows or macosx16:18
zykotick9Seryth: add your user to the "admin" group (which permits sudo access)16:18
SmashingXairtonix: well for me it's useful because in that cas I'm only updating the software I'm really using16:18
SmashingXairtonix: why would you upgrade software you don't use?16:18
airtonixSmashingX: which is why i said "find a ppa that provides the latest version of filezilla"16:18
Serythzykotick9: how?16:18
zykotick9airtonix: s/linux/ubuntu/ try slackware and say linux is easier for installing software ;)16:18
airtonixSmashingX: ? i wouldn't upgrade software i don't use... because i wouldn't have it installed.16:18
_ravenwhere is the rhythmbox-cache? (need to reset scanned files)16:19
SmashingXairtonix: but with that I have to add it to a file that I don't remember the name, and the run many commands after I did a lot of research abou it16:19
zykotick9Seryth: i'm not going to reply.  So either ask the channel how, or do some research.16:19
meta-coderWoah woah woah! 1485 chatters here!16:19
airtonixSmashingX: and with macosx and windows you have to remember all individual the places all your software came from when you need to update them ...16:19
SmashingXairtonix: I'm pretty sure 90% of the people has at least 1 program in their computer they used to use it but not anymore16:19
Serythzykotick9: Uh, okay....16:20
airtonixSmashingX: i'm not sure what your point is. or how that's a bad thing about apt-get16:20
airtonixSmashingX: 1. add ppa. 2. use software. 3. somewhere in future run : sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade 4. relish as all upgradable software is upgraded16:21
SmashingXairtonix: well my point is why it has to be such a pain to upgrade a program as you asked.. as opposed to lets say windows16:21
module000SmashingX: that "software i don't use" includes things like your drivers that you want updated to fix bugs/errors. along with a plethora of other useful updates.16:21
zykotick9module000: +116:21
royale1223Gparted dont detect partitions. why?16:22
celthunderroyale1223: what type?16:22
SmashingXmodule000:  drivers? I just install drivers when I install my OS, and then I forget about them16:22
compdocSmashingX, you mean why would someone update software they dont use thats installed? Pretty simple answer to that16:22
royale1223celthunder: /dev/sdb sata16:22
airtonixSmashingX: last time i had to upgrade software on a windows machine it took me all afternoon... that's just one machine... same operation on my linux gaming laptop takes 30mins16:22
celthunderroyale1223: do you have the fs tools installed for the partition type/mbr/gpt stuff16:22
royale1223celthunder: everything in it16:22
royale1223celthunder: tried deleting gpt via gdisk, no use16:23
module000SmashingX: and since you normally forget about them, that's precisely why you benefit from them being updated by someone who is watchful enough(your OS) to *not* forget about them. this is a non-argument, install windows if this makes no sense.16:23
zykotick9SmashingX: perhaps there are some variable you aren't taking into account.  Updates in Ubuntu ONLY fix bugs and security issues, that's it - you don't get NEW versions of stuff.16:23
airtonixSmashingX: btw why are you use filezilla when nautilus does ftp and sftp/ssh better16:23
airtonixzykotick9: unless you add ppa16:23
_ravenwhere is the rhythmbox-cache? (need to reset scanned files)16:23
zykotick9airtonix: right, and PPA's are unsupported 3rd party16:23
airtonix_raven: somewhere in ~/.config/16:23
royale1223celthunder: this happend when i was using testdisk to recover a deleted partition16:24
SmashingXzykotick9: I think that's a good point16:24
SerythHow can I add a user to the admin group? I currently have two users, and I tried to delete one of them, but got an error saying that it's the only user in the admin group, and deleting it would screw everything up. How can I switch admin to the other user, so I can delete the one I want to?16:24
SmashingXzykotick9: But I also think there are also some improvements16:24
czxairtonix, in WIndows and MacOSX you don't have to wait FOUR months to upgrade your ENTIRE system to get a new version of a program16:24
zykotick9_raven: i always pointed rhythmbox to a directory with one or two files, rescanned, the switched back to regular music directory and rescanned16:24
celthunderroyale1223: lol don't delete partitions you still want...gl16:24
airtonixczx: i don't have to wait four months on linux either.16:25
airtonixczx: it's great isn't it! :)16:25

czxyes, if you can afford playing with git and compiler16:25
royale1223royale1223: i didnt. i recoverd the deleted partition. they are rw from nautilus. but gparted dont detect them16:25
SmashingXairtonix: mhhh I find Filezilla easier to use16:25
airtonixczx: who said anything about git?16:26
royale1223celthunder: : i didnt. i recoverd the deleted partition. they are rw from nautilus. but gparted dont detect them16:26
airtonixSmashingX: that's strange i find it frustratingly difficult to use.16:26
SmashingXairtonix: what's the main point why you find it easier?16:27
royale1223celthunder: and because gparted dont work i cant install ubuntu on it.16:27
airtonixSmashingX: it's the same interface that i use to operate on local files.16:27
royale1223celthunder: i can read write the files very well. Its just the gparted.16:27
SmashingXairtonix: well let me give it a try16:27
SmashingXairtonix: the bad thing about it is that I will have to lear the different functions to use16:28
airtonixSmashingX: is there some special feature that filezilla has?16:28

airtonixsvg: yeah i went back to 10.1016:30
celthunderroyale1223: no ideas lol16:30
royale1223svg: try usb installer. www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/16:30
airtonixsvg: but i actually installed from usb i think.16:30
royale1223celthunder: thanks anyway.16:30
airtonixsvg: but you have to prepare the usb as a hfs or something16:30
celthunderroyale1223: try to do it from a terminal (start gparted) or use parted or fdisk see if you can get the error16:30
svgThis sounds like the right module isn't loaded for cdrom access16:31
mmaattI am having trouble with my wifi card. My internet connection is noticeably slower on ubuntu than on windows. Any suggestions on where to start?16:31
purplefoolok, trying to install a new graphic card and ran into problems.  the gui doesn't work, so i am stuck in terminal (not to savey there).  i am trying to get computer to update the system through ppa, but it only reads what is needed and doesn't download them...how to i get it to download the needed files?16:31
royale1223celthunder: no errors on fdisk16:31
SmashingXairtonix: not special feature but as I said sometimes you stick to a program because you know how it works and you know where to find anything you need easily, even thought others find it difficult to use (like in our case)16:33
royale1223celthunder: fdisk http://paste.ubuntu.com/847420/16:33
airtonixSmashingX: i think i really like the idea of having my ssh and ftp servers bookmarked in nautilus right there next to my other stuff... (plus once mounted they are actually accesible through ~/.gvfs/server name/path/to/stuff/on/remote/machine/16:34

royale1223purplefool: i use sudo apt-fast upgrade . much faster16:37
airtonixSmashingX: open up the gnome-shell overview: (press windows key) or move mouse to top left corner of screen, or press 'activities'16:37

danileigh79Masterlorn: sype lsusb into a seperate terminal16:49

module000royale1223: i dont' know how to fix that though, if it was me i would export the partitions, re-create the table, then import my data partitions. there could be an easier way but i don't have experience with it16:49

sacarlsonLukeNukem: your router is forwarded?  is all the firewall on that system also disabled open?17:22
f10w3r5make sure you're allowing tcp/80 on your outside interface.17:22

zykotick9LukeNukem: can a computer on the local network connect?  (verifies server is working)  are you forwarding to the correct IP of the server?  perhaps your ISP blocks port 80?17:26
