tomvolekits a test file, and i created it with touch foo00:31
god-zotacRenatoSilva:: you don't have to reinstall grub to get access back to windows, just pop the windows install disc in and repair your install and then it will boot00:31

WoCmjbermea u have a pin set and security options on; on your iphone ?00:33
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: the usb stick is ok00:33
mjbermeaWoC: I have no PIN set.00:33
urfr332gORenatoSilva, yeah if that was the command it would be, try relaxing and actually getting help, and not questioning the ones helping you. :)00:34
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: now I filled user settings, waiting to see what will happen00:34
god-zotacRenatoSilva:: why not just reinstall ubuntu, and let it keep your windows partition, and install the boot loader from the installer. i don't understand why you are going about it the dirty way00:34
Jordan_URenatoSilva: You can also install an MS-Syle mbr from the Ubuntu LiveCD, but I'd like to know more information about why Windows can't boot now so that I'm more confident that will solve the problem.00:34
WoCmjbermea check your dmesg after you hook up the iphone00:35
god-zotacJordan_U:: because he overwrote the MS bootloader with a failed grub install it seems00:35
mjbermeadmesg in Terminal?00:35
RenatoSilvaJordan_U: I'm not sure how mbr got overwritten but surely was in one of the times I tried to install it00:35

Naddhi guys00:38
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: not having swap and reiserfs not ext4, then I tried a new install and set up that in custom option, then it froze in some point00:38
mjbermeaWoC: Sent00:38
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: then I tried again and it froze in some other point00:38
god-zotacRenatoSilva:: for future reference, you might want to consider creating a /home partition seperate from /  so you can store your personalized settings and not format /home each time.. then doing a fresh install is much easier and more convenient00:38
WoCmjbermea try a different usb port00:39
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: I've backed up all I wanted to the ntfs partition (sda3)00:39
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: let me check if it froze again00:40
god-zotacRenatoSilva:: what im saying will prevent you from needing to backup/restore your files by hand each time.. just create /home on a seperate partition and it makes life much easier in the event you want to zap the entire OS and install fresh00:40
_cbhow do I select a folder as a playlist in banshee?00:40

RenatoSilvagod-zotac: what I've backed up is pretty much those settings I told you earlier00:41
god-zotacRenatoSilva:: i understand that, but having /home as a subdirectory on the same partition as /  isn't handy when you want to do a fresh install/reinstall   and for the most part it is a good practice to have /home on its own partition00:41
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: just a gnome2 theme, an emerald theme, settings for terminal and gedit00:41
WoCmjbermea there may be some issue with your iphone then, like the usb connector may be dirty/corroded00:42
god-zotacsee, all that is stored in your /home/username00:42
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: handy?00:42
kpas_How would one get rid of the lower gnome menu in gnome classic00:42
mjbermeaWoC: It works fine on Windows and other Linux distros.00:42
god-zotacyou could have kept all that and just put that /home partition in your new installs fstab, without formating it during install00:42
RenatoSilvathis webchat is very confusing!00:42
WoCmjbermea then i would think you may be lacking a kernel module00:43
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: I don't keep data neither in /home nor in / at all00:43

RenatoSilvagod-zotac: 607 minutes? ã.ã00:44
aguitelhow to know my partitions mounted in terminal?00:45
WoCaguitel; mount00:45
god-zotacRenatoSilva:: you don't keep data in neither /home nor in /? where do you keep it then?  and if you don't have it in home then how do you have your $HOME themes/terminal settings configured to load from somewhere other than the default /home/username/.config00:45
mjbermeaWoC: Alright. :) Let me try downloading the libimobiledevice module because it's reported in a bug.00:45
WoCmjbermea best of luck, it sounds like a good plan00:46
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: my data is stored in sda300:46
aguitelWoC, /home partition appears unmounted in gparted ,is this correct?00:46
mjbermeaWoC: Thanks for your help.00:46
god-zotacRenatoSilva:: and where is sda3 mounted?00:47
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: it doesn't matter00:47
WoCaguitel check with 'mount' in a terminal window00:47
god-zotacRenatoSilva:: for the most part, if you use your /home  you can mount it on a fresh install keeping your old settings, and when you login you wont have to do anything, all your settings will be just like they was in your previous install00:47
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: I don't really have settings/data to save from old installation, just those few I told you, and they're now in sda3 which is my ntfs data partition00:47
god-zotacRenatoSilva:: ok, do it however you wish.. but for future reference you may want to consider a /home partition apart from the /  (root) partition00:48
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: 204:36 remaining, crazy...00:48
aguitelWoC, see that,http://paste.pocoo.org/show/553727/00:48
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: why exactly except for looking cool?00:49
god-zotacRenatoSilva:: is your internet connection slow?00:49
god-zotacRenatoSilva:: looking cool?   its nothing about looking cool,  its handy to not have to reconfigure every single thing you have, and to keep your personal files, web browser settings, terminal settings, themes, downloaded files, etc00:49
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: connection seems ok00:49
god-zotacRenatoSilva:: what i am saying is the things in /home  are usually not distro / release dependent.. they are the settings that are applied to every application upon launch / login to y our desktop environment, login shell, etc00:50
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: if I was about to do something that could erase that data, I'd back it up, which I already did... I don't really see your point. You may like a partition for /home but I don't need it00:50
god-zotacmy point is to carry over your settings and not need to worry about losing them when doing a new install00:51
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: ok it would not be distro/release dependant except it becomes junk over the time00:51
god-zotacanother good point is you can mount the /home partition over a network and keep your same setup across different machines on your network, even ones using different distributions00:51
god-zotacwhat becomes junk about it?00:52
RenatoSilvagod-zotac: this is why I'm starting from scratch after years, I have my home pretty clean but can't speak of everything else, so to be sure I'll overwrite everything from scratch00:52
Legoleaderhi there00:52
god-zotacim done with this conversation, anyone who has any linux experience at all will tell you that having /home on its own partition is a good idea, i see no reason that it is not a good idea00:52

WoChaux i would still use MBR for the aprtition table, for compabilty assurance00:58
RenatoSilvahaux: you don't need to put a bootloader on it if it's a data-only hard drive00:59
hauxRenatoSilva,  When you format a drive in Dist Utility, it has a few options to select from. MBR, GUID, None, or Apple.00:59

gmachine_24Hi. I am about to upgrade my Ubuntu on a dual-boot (win7) machine. I am NOT going to do an upgrade - going to do a fresh install. Should I boot from a live CD and wipe out the Ubuntu partitions ... and then install into the open/unused space? Or will there be a choice when installing to use the area where Ubuntu is currently installed. Thx.01:21
urfr332gOInTrouble, if you do it enough they will ban you and it actually will stop some from helping you01:21
csiekyes thanks to PXE01:21

ThePendulumgmachine_24: When you're installing Ubuntu (11.10?), you'll get the option to replace your old Ubuntun installation with the new one, so that's the option you need :)01:22
csiekThePendulum see the LTSP project01:22

gmachine_24ThePendulum, thanks. So that will be a complete new install, right? Because, as I said, I do not want to do an upgrade. That has failed me.01:22

BrandonBoltonHello, is there an easy way to share the Internet connection from my laptop to something else with Ubuntu?01:26
ThePendulumgmachine_24: Correct, Canonical is so sure about themselves that they are going to quit financial support for Kubuntu as of 12.0401:26
gmachine_24ThePendulum: I thought they said they were doing it because they're not making any money at it.01:26

BrandonBoltongmachine_24, I am trying to share the internet connection from my netbook running 10.04 to a XP desktop so I can do updates. I don't want to have an internet cord going across my living room (kinda a safety hazard).01:28
gmachine_24BrandonBolton: I'm assuming you don't have a router.01:29
ThePendulumgmachine_24: That's correct, so basically you could conclude that they consider KDE doomed and are deadset on Unity on Gnome 3+01:29
gmachine_24ThePendulum: That's unfortunate. Usually more is better.01:29

Whenever I try to use the Software Center to install something I want it will give the usual install dialogue, prompt me for my authentication and such, displaying the "Installing..." message for roughly half a second and then totally stop and just sit there. After which, if I try again, it does the same thing. Any ideas on01:42

playit_I was thinking about transparancy or using gnome 3.2s half feature02:49
Uncle_Festerhow do you uninstall a program in wine in ubuntu 11.10?02:49
playit_or possibly using another device as a virtual second monitor .. like a psp or a kindle or something02:49

playit_haha yes.. it didn't work and I got arrested :\02:52
elkyLL2|Android, we ops find that doing all moderation in private means we have to explain things ten times over and nobody in the channel ever learns.02:52
linux_is_my_heroelky: is drm off limits in here?02:52
reCAPTCHAlinux_is_my_hero: Yeah, they like it so much that they put it on the login screen.02:53

goodtimei learn in here elky02:53
goodtimesink or swim i say02:53
linux_is_my_heroelky: is it wrong to want to print a kindle ebook so i can study with a real book?02:54
elkylinux_is_my_hero, that's technically up to each helper, but it's generally discouraged. we don't want to be known as a piracy channel02:54
LL2|Androidplayit_: lol02:54
elkylinux_is_my_hero, printing is fair use for educational purposes under pretty much all copyright legislation i'm aware of. ianal though02:54

goodtimethere been a few crackdowns02:55

elkylinux_is_my_hero, find better software? i don't know if calibre has a print button or not02:56

elkyalso, we generally don't go supporting windows software in #ubuntu, it's kind of beside the point ;)02:57

Uncle_Festerno i'm just really confused02:57
Uncle_Festerand needed some help02:57

linux_is_my_heroelky: i meant calibre for ubuntu (my computer).  i apoligize for not being more specific.02:59
Uncle_Festeri may just try a diiferent distro.  maybe there is better support03:00
[deXter]Uncle_Fester, Love your nick. :)03:00
rattatoueUncle_Fester, whats your problem exactly? sorry I missed it03:00
ejvlinux_is_my_hero: sorry, i don't know much about that stuff, sounds like it's a shame that kindle isn't releasing their content free of DRM, but that's an subject for another channel03:00
ejvlinux_is_my_hero: all I can say is don't support DRM :)03:01
Uncle_Festeri just recently updated from ubuntu 10.04 to 11.1003:01
patrick__does ubuntu support python03:01
linux_is_my_heroejv: yup03:01
ejvpatrick__: of course03:01
rattatoueUncle_Fester, okay. And?03:01
ejvUncle_Fester: the quality of support you get here, is a function of the quality and thoroughness of details you provide to us.03:02
linux_is_my_heroejv, elky: thanks for your suggestions, though, that should give me so more ideas if i cant get ubuntu calibre to work.  y'all have a good night :-)03:02

Uncle_Festerand i have wine installed. i used to just go to applications and go to wine and uninstall a program.  but now with this new desktop i cant figure out how to uninstall a program from wine03:02
Uncle_Festeri just want to know how to uninstal a program in wine in ubuntu 11.1003:03
rattatoueUncle_Fester, http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#head-9893ae50079ca7a959258f0bc9a17aaf2e69b391 go there and go to 4.2 It says how to uninstall a program in wine.03:03
stanikihi guys, been logged in for hours now, was watching a video on banshee all of a sudden my display resolution reduces drastically and my display is no longer detected HELP PLEASE!03:03
ejvpatrick__: i think you're confused, python has a PSFL license, similar to GPL; you can fetch python from any Ubuntu repository, for free (as in beer)03:03
rattatouestaniki, not to state the obvious did you try restarting the computer?03:03
Uncle_Festeri already looked at it03:03
stanikiyes I did03:03
rattatoueUncle_Fester, and did you try it?03:03
Uncle_Festerhave no clue on how03:04
Flip_is anyone familiar with adding a RAID1 array into an already installed ubuntu os03:04
Uncle_Festernothing shows up in the uninstaller03:04
rattatoueUncle_Fester, in a terminal run wine uninstaller03:04
Flip_i need ubuntu on a separate drive from the raid03:04
rattatoueUncle_Fester, oh strange. Hmm.03:04
Uncle_Festeri did. and no programs show up03:05
rattatouestaniki, is your video card nvidia by any chance?03:05
Uncle_Festernow the uninstaller wont show up03:05
ejvstaniki: i haven't wrestled with ubuntu on a workstation for quite some time, but in the past, i'd invoke a `dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg` to reinitiliaze the environment03:05
decafcan I just dd lucid desktop iso to usb stick and hope it works?03:05
LL2|Android"Thing, Emma Jig. I now pronounce you hand in hand"03:05
stanikino i'm using the onboard graphics card, i am not 100% what it is but its definitely an intel product03:05
zykotick9decaf: it won't - it's not hybrid like 11.1003:06
xanguadecaf: lucid no, you can with oneiric i believe03:06
rattatoueUncle_Fester, sounds like you might need to reinstall your wine03:06
Uncle_Festerit opens and closes really fast03:06
Uncle_Festeryea i'll do that03:06
stanikitried that ejv doesn;t work03:07
decafzykotick9, xangua  I'm on debian, couldn't find a syslinux howto for desktop cd, grub4dos website is down03:07
Flip_HELP WITH RAID :/03:07
ejvstaniki: sorry dude03:07
rattatouestaniki, are you running nvidia?03:07
carp1My laptop goes into terminal and it says there was a panic.  From here, my laptop is froze and I have to force reboot.  Can someone help me?03:07
stanikirattatoue not running nvidida03:07
ejvFlip_: be more specific.03:07
stanikiusing my onboard graphics03:07
stanikinot 100% sure what it is03:07
Flip_I setup a RAID sync when I first installed the live CD with ubuntu server03:07
Flip_I loaded the gnome desktop cause I'm not so crafty with CLI03:08
xanguadecaf: you can use unetbootin to make a bootable ubuntu stick03:08
Flip_I can see the RAID config in the disk utility03:08
ejvyou try reinstalling xserver ?03:08
Flip_but I cannot access the raid as though it is not mounted03:08
Flip_I have my OS on sda my raid is sdb and sdc and i have afourth drive for misc and that is sdd03:08
ejvsudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-core then sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg followed by a reboot ? that's how i'd solve it few years ago03:08
rattatouestaniki, guessing probably intel03:08
decafxangua: unetbootin couldn't detect my usb. but I found grub4dos at sourceforge03:09
LL2|Androidejv: speaking of that03:09
stanikiyes it is an intel product, i'm very new to linux so bear with me if I seem a bit slow03:09
LL2|AndroidMind helping me with installing some gui on my ssh server?03:09
Flip_ejv any ideas03:09
LL2|AndroidI can give you access if need03:09
ejvi'd rather explain, the various desktop environments are available in meta packages i believe, so sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop for instance should give you what you want03:10
rattatoueLL2 did you try sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop or xubuntu-desktop so on?03:10
ejvyou can replace that with lxde, xfce, kde, etc.03:10
Flip_make sure you change your sources.list file before you install dsktop gui03:10
LL2|AndroidI do use root to install apts03:10
ejvi don't know the exact names, you'll need to google or check the ubuntu community docs03:10
LL2|AndroidWhich is the default ccount03:11
LL2|AndroidSo I don't need sudo at the beginning03:11
LL2|AndroidBut thanks03:11
Flip_Android: changes the # in the etc/apt/sources.list03:11
LL2|AndroidAllso, its just regular ubuntu03:11
LL2|AndroidI think it was 11.0403:11
LL2|Android64 bit03:11
Flip_in 11.04 alter the lucid version to hardy03:12
ejvFlip_: is this a software managed raid via 'mdadm' or hardware fakeraid or dedicated hardware controller03:12
LL2|AndroidHoly crap03:12
Flip_it created the /dev/md003:12
LL2|AndroidThat is a lot of packages, ejv03:12
ejvso you said you can't access an unmounted block device, that sounds about right. heheh03:13
Flip_well yeah - i get that lol03:13
Flip_how do i mount it - i tried re-formating it to FREESPACE03:13
=== CPhoenix_ is now known as CPhoenix
ejvyou need to write a filesystem to it03:13
Flip_I need to store my movies and music on this drive so I can use it as a server and gain the redundancy of raid when multiple access takes palce03:14
ejvi understand, is there anything important on it right now Flip_ ?03:14
LL2|JedIRCejv: stupid android is screwing up on me03:14
Flip_nothing. I'm in the beginning stages. Just loading and reloading different ways tot see if i can get my result03:14
LL2|JedIRCAlso, I like how you can answer yes or no instead of y or n03:15
ejvFlip_: ok that's fine, which raid level are you using again?03:15
Flip_3.0tb drives03:15
cloudgeekhost own domain03:15
ejvFlip_: alright, so you need to apply a filesystem, mkfs.[ext3,ext4,xfs,jfs,etc.] /dev/md003:15
Flip_ahhh gotcha03:16
linux_is_my_herohelp, my calibre won't open my ebooks.03:16
Flip_so I initially just partitioned them with GUID and set the RAID sync on them. Now I need to apply a file system?03:16
linux_is_my_heroubuntu 11.10 x64, calibre 0.8.803:16
ejvFlip_: yes, afterwards, you can mount it: mount /dev/md0 /mnt/raid03:17
reisiolinux_is_my_hero: how many formats have you tried?03:17
Flip_One other question. When I do my port forwarding. How do i access it for example (10.1.10..9/xxxxxx)03:17
ejvFlip_: writing a filesystem is, im not sure what the english word is, 'damaging' be sure you don't misspell and that you are applying the change to the correct block device.03:17
Flip_I need NAT to resolve to the correct mount03:18
linux_is_my_heroreisio: *.azw, which i guess is amazons ebook format?03:18
cloudgeekany body how to use bind to host a domain name on our laptop03:19
LL2|JedIRCSo ejv03:19
reisiolinux_is_my_hero: yeah03:19
reisiolinux_is_my_hero: do you get an error?03:19
linux_is_my_herono, it just doesnt do anything.03:19
linux_is_my_heroreisio: *no, it just doesn't do anything.03:19
Flip_ejv: you know anything about ip resolution and NAT03:20
LL2|JedIRCBasically the ubuntu-desktop package is a gui for ubuntu ssh?03:20
LL2|JedIRCAnd I'll still be able to use ssh by default?03:20
ejvFlip_: port forwarding is handled by your switch/router/$NETWORK_EQUIPMENT, you can get the ip address of your machine by typing `sudo ifconfig`, route information from `sudo route -n`, etc.03:20
LL2|JedIRCima do 'sudo sudo'03:21
* LL2|JedIRC has just caused sudo-ception03:21
reisiolinux_is_my_hero: try running calibre from a terminal, and observing the output when you attempt to open the file/s03:21
zykotick9ejv: i didn't think ubuntu needed sudo for ifconfig?03:21
=== CPhoenix_ is now known as CPhoenix
Flip_Yeah... I got that down. I've done a lot of port forwarding but not with a Linux based file system. Just wondering if you know the route for the mount on port forwarding. Id like to be able to access my RAID on https port 44303:22
LL2|JedIRCreisio: is the ubuntu-desktop package basically a gui for ssh?03:22
zykotick9LL2|JedIRC: ubuntu-desktop has basically NOTHING to do with SSH03:22
LL2|JedIRCAnd will it still automatically send me to the ssh at first?03:22
ejvFlip_: sorry you're not making any sense to me03:22
linux_is_my_heroreisio: uh, how?03:22
reisiolinux_is_my_hero: what version of Ubuntu?03:23
ejvmaybe someone else will understand what you want03:23
reisioLL2|JedIRC: what zykotick9 said03:23
linux_is_my_heroreisio: 11.10 x6403:23
reisioLL2|JedIRC: I guess from a really hardcore joking commandline POV you could say that, though :p03:23
reisiolinux_is_my_hero: try CTRL+ALT+t03:23
reisiothen type 'calibre' (probably) and hit ENTER03:24
reisioclose any open calibre first03:24
Flip_Lets say ubuntu is - If I port forward https access to it's going to go to the entire linux system. My other server I use to have would resolve to the main folder by

ejvFlip_: if you want SSH to listen on an alternate port, you can make adjustments to the daemon by modifying /etc/ssh/sshd_config03:24
Flip_hen when I type my static ip address in I would resolve to that one folder on https03:24
LL2|JedIRCejv: how will I start the gui From ssh?03:24
ejvLL2|JedIRC: startx ?03:24
rattatoueLL2|Android, I dont think you can. If you do it will only show you the log of the terminal not the actual gui on the machine. The machine itself will be the only thing seeing the GUI.03:25
LL2|JedIRCejv: it shouldn't start the x gui server on startup, correct?03:25
ejvLL2|JedIRC: i have no idea, im not following your setup.03:25
rattatoueejv, he is sshing into his machine. And wants to start the gui and be able to see it through the SSH too. Which I dont think is possible.03:26
Flip_LL2|Android you can view your gui with "Chicken of the VNC" freeware03:26
ejvrattatoue: it is possible, via vnc or nx03:26
rattatoueejv, I know that. I am meaning through SSH alone its not possible.03:26
Flip_vnc is the best way03:26
ejvLL2|JedIRC: check the ubuntu documentation about 'nxserver'03:27
ejvrattatoue: nxserver occurs over ssh.03:27
Flip_SSH is not possible your right rattatoue03:27
RenatoSilvahow to remove unetbootin from my usb stick? I've installed ubuntu already and I don't need it to be bootable anymore03:27
reisioit's possible even without VNC03:27
linux_is_my_heroreisio: its says the ebook is locked by drm, which is off-topic in here.  can i PM you?03:27
Uncle_Festeri just updated to ubuntu 11.10 and can't figure out how to shut down.  in 10.04 i just went to the upper right hand corner and had the option.  where is it in 11.10?03:27

rattatoueUncle_Fester, upper right corner? The little gear looking icon.03:28
ejv(ssh based, and knowing is half the battle.)03:28

reisioLL2|JedIRC: you might look into X forwarding, too03:28
LL2|JedIRCOh wait03:28
ejvif you have ssh open and listening there's no additional configuration necessary for nx to function03:28
rattatoueUncle_Fester, are you on unity? like where you have a dock looking thing on the left of your screen03:28
Uncle_Festeri am omn 11.1003:29
LL2|JedIRCwhere was the config file with the x11forwarding option?03:29
Flip_LL2|JedIRC what system are you running SSH from03:29
ejvif for some reason you don't have ssh open and working, there's always: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSHHowto03:29
LL2|JedIRCWell, I'm using a android tablet for ssh03:29
rattatoueUncle_Fester, but there are different DE. Do you see icons on the left side of your screen? looks kinda like  a dock with firefox icon and a few others.03:29
LL2|JedIRCBut the server itself is running ubuntu03:29
Jordan_ULL2|JedIRC: What is your end goal?03:29
Uncle_Festeryes i do03:30
Flip_You'll have to find an app that will run VNC if you're on a tablet03:30
LL2|JedIRCI guess to be able to use a gui in ssh03:30
rattatoueUncle_Fester, then you should have a gear icon in the top right.03:30
reisioyeah, it's going to be a pain on Android03:30
reisioand most of the apps will probably be commercial03:30
reisioLL2|JedIRC: ask #android about it03:30

Flip_You're limited on tha Arch on android03:30
Uncle_Festerno. in the far upper right corner03:30
LL2|JedIRCShould I use vnc4server or tightvncserver?03:31
rattatoueUncle_Fester, do you see in the top right where your TIME is, then next to it shows whatever your username is, then next to that is a Gear\star\circle looking icon?03:31
Uncle_Festerit just shows me my user name and option to log in03:31
ejvclients for android is outside the scope of #ubuntu support; but it is possible with nx or vnc to spawn an instance of an environment remotely over ssh.03:31
Flip_You could try those03:31
Uncle_Festerdont have the gear03:31
Flip_See if Android can run chicken of the vnc03:31
rattatoueUncle_Fester, are you at the login screen?03:31
Flip_I've had the most luck with that one03:31
LL2|JedIRCWell, ejv: should I install the vnc4server package or the tightvncserver package?03:32

evildaemonRenatoSilva: Well crap. There wasn't anything irreplacable was there?03:44
Flip_sacarlson I need a new android so bad. i've done so much tampering and experimenting that mine is on the fritz!03:44

zillyAfter login, is .profile executed before .bash_profile?03:45
RenatoSilvaevildaemon: the utility that comes with ubuntu? I'm in windows, will reboot and check and try to give feedback, thanks03:45
sacarlsonFlip_: teamviewer is that a free app on android?  maybe that's why I failed to find a solution to not have to use the small keyboard03:45
smw_!gpgerr told me that that was the key and the system considered it new.03:45
ubottusmw_: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)03:45
evildaemonRenatoSilva: NO, that utility makes it bootable.03:45
RenatoSilvaevildaemon: ok03:45
Flip_TeamViewer is free ;) as long as you use it for personal use (wink wink)03:45
escottzilly, the very top of .profile explains it is not read if .bash_profile exists03:45
zykotick9smw_: !gpgerr is for 3rd party keys, you're looking for ubuntu keys - should be a package i believe03:45
RenatoSilvaevildaemon: both unetbootin and 'the utility that comes with Ubuntu'?03:46
Flip_I use TeamViewer for so uch03:46
evildaemonRenatoSilva: Uh, you should be able to just right click and overwrite it with a FAT filesystem if theres nothing important.03:46
smw_zykotick9, the question is, why am I getting this error?03:46
evildaemonRenatoSilva: Well yeah, thats what there for.03:46
zillyescott, what's the best way to execute a python script upon login, then?03:46
zykotick9smw_: the keys changes, or your keys are corrupt???03:46
Flip_sacarlson it's kinda creepy watching your screen move when you're controling from your phone03:46
smw_zykotick9, obviously the keys did not change.03:46
RenatoSilvaevildaemon: not sure how usb booting works but, doesn't it have also a partition independent area like hdd's MBR?03:47
escottzilly, execute it in a startup script. i dont understand what the question part of this question is03:47
smw_zykotick9, my ubuntu-keyring is up to date and everyone would be complaining now ;-)03:47
evildaemonRenatoSilva: Reformatting should take out the whole volume.03:47
sgo11hi, what is the best screencast application in ubuntu now? Is that still recordmydesktop? I don't see it gets updated within three years. thanks.03:47
Flip_I gave up long ago... don't know why it's my kryp03:48
* evildaemon notes to himself to write a new screenrecord app03:48
RenatoSilvaevildaemon: ok the problem is that I have GiBs of backup files (yes it was mixed with ubuntu install), I'm going to copy them to hdd then reformat it, thanks!03:48
zillyescott, I'm unfamiliar with startup scripts.  I'll have to check them out.  Thanks.03:48
smw_zykotick9, ideas?03:48
evildaemonRenatoSilva: Thats what i'd do. Just copy them to your computers HDD then reformat.03:49
zykotick9smw_: nope, sorry.  good luck.  change mirrors maybe?03:49
RenatoSilvazilly: an easy way to run something when you log in is the session manager, you can add stuff there03:49
escottzilly, presumably you would just put it in .bashrc, but you might want to wrap it in some kind of check of the $TERM variable so that it doesn't get started in situations that aren't appropriate03:49
smw_zykotick9, what mirrors are you using?03:49
smw_zykotick9, I am using http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/03:49

escottzilly, .bashrc is sourced by .profile. just look at .profile to see where. is that not what you want?03:51

smw_Any ideas on how to get the src package from a ppa?03:55
Pikkachuwho was here helping me a few hours ago, I'm RenatoSilva. I was confused about what to do... it was a discussion about compiz, emerald, xfce, gnome, grub, windows, reinstall...03:55
trueGreenanyone know how I can install pico on an AWS instance using yum?03:56
nathan28you may need to uncomment a line in the config for an HP usb all-in-one03:56
Pikkachusmw_: what are you looking for03:56
smw_Pikkachu, the src package used to build the vlc packages03:56
craigbass1976nathan28, I do.  I can print fine; I've not yet loked at cups logs for scan errors.  Would they even be in there?03:56
Pikkachusmw_: when I add a ppa in synaptic like the line shown in the ppa page in LP, it adds two lines, one being for source code03:57
smw_Pikkachu, ppa does the package builds... so it must have the src03:57
sacarlsonsmw_: I see there is another VLC ppa  than what you saw https://launchpad.net/~videolan/+archive/master-daily  that has daily builds03:58

sacarlsonsmw_: well if you see a link from there oficial site I guess03:59
smw_sacarlson, yeah03:59
zykotick9smw_: if your getting the source from the PPA, why not just use the binary?  (getting source from upstream "might" make sense)03:59
craigbass1976nathan28, I don't even see a camera group03:59
smw_zykotick9, getting the src package. Not the src.03:59
=== mint is now known as c31r2g
smw_zykotick9, the src package should have relatively few files in it including a link to the source upstream.04:00
smw_zykotick9, if it also contains the actual vlc src, I can always delete and replace it.04:00
escottcarp1, any distinctive words in the panic?04:00
Pikkachusmw_: doesn't it add the src line for you?04:00
smw_Pikkachu, I am not trying to add the repo04:00
Pikkachusmw_: oh wait, the src line if for source of the app not the package sorry04:01
nathan28crankharder: is it a USB printer?04:01
Pikkachusmw_: you want the DEB source itself? just extract it04:01
nathan28unplug it, plug it back in, and see what dmesg says at the end04:01
Pikkachusmw_: .deb are compressed files04:01
nathan28or messages.log04:01
escottcarp1, are you booting an installed system or a livecd?04:02
carp1Its installed on the drive04:02
escottcarp1, you might try using a livecd to check the smart status of the disks04:03
GreenEmberthe version of transmission in the repo is 1.93 how would I go about installing a different version?04:03

reisioand even then, pretty much only when it's so un-useful nobody forks it or maintains it05:02
ZeloZelosGuest73649, it should show a login05:02
Guest73649Zelo, what do you mean?>05:02
ZeloZelosyou hit alt ctrl and 4 for instance, should show the machines name and login:05:03
Guest73649No, it's goes to a black screen05:03

superdave321Bluetooth dongle is not being recognised by my system. found it's usb id is 0a12:0001, but can't find helpful info online. acts like a missing driver. any ideas?05:04
damo22could be your video drivers are not working in console mode05:04
damo22it does that on my mac05:04
ZeloZeloshow crazy is that..guess its nvidea rofl05:04
damo22i think its EFI05:05
ZeloZelosheres a good one, when i install the nvidea driver for my sys, it disables opengl, which i have dual layered graphics nvidia controlled by intel hd05:06
rhin0nvidia seems to be like the only driver I see - always nvidia - everything nvidia05:06

ZeloZelosubuntu needs a team of 1000's to make drivers for video cards n trouble shoot them to end microsoft's check mate on functionality which is keeping ubuntu from playing those great games, sure theres a few..05:12

reisioZeloZelos: that has nothing to do with video drivers05:13
zykotick9ZeloZelos: until you convince nvidia & ati (err amd) to open there drivers, not much ubuntu or any other distro can do...05:13
reisioZeloZelos: if a company wants to make a game that requires DirectX, and then program the game so poorly that it doesn't run via Wine, that is something Canonical and everyone else can do virtually nothing about05:13
reisiozykotick9: nothing to do with drivers05:13
reisioas far as drivers go, Linux is outcompeting everything05:14
reisiothere is no OS that supports more hardware05:14
Lintreisio, useless hardware05:14
reisioLint: yup, useless hardware that someone needed a driver to use05:14
reisiothe definition of useless05:15
ZeloZelosthey are open to microsoft, which i bet somehow owns/controlls those companies05:15
reisioare you talking about nvidia & ati?05:15
reisiothere are Linux drivers for their devices...05:15
reisiomultiple ones05:15
reisioWindows has only one set of drivers for them05:15
reisiomake sense please :p05:15
ZeloZelosbut they break stuff05:15
reisioso do Windows drivers05:15
reisiothe difference is you pay extra for a computer someone has assembled to work properly with FOO drivers preinstalled05:16
ZeloZelosor just dont work, but windows drivers work most of the time, with less problems, just click update driver?05:16
reisiocomparing that to a computer you put together with minimal knowledge is not particularly useful05:16
reisioZeloZelos: wow, okay so you're from a different planet :p05:16
reisio/join ##windows and just watch for a little while05:16
reisioit's the same as here, only they pay for it and it was already installed FOR THEM05:17
Lintreisio, why my 3 years old driver performs better than today's opensource? it's nonsence05:17
SoulShadowbecause it's opensource05:17
reisioLint: why do we have to compare it to the open source driver?05:17
reisioLint: if it's a nvidia or ati device, there are official drivers05:17
SoulShadowimo, FOSS drivers rarely work as well as their proprietary counterparts05:18
reisioopen source always wins in the end, though05:18
Lintreisio, official drivers do not work on linux since 200905:18
ZeloZelosok so show me the driver that works with my nvidea m550 that dont break open gl05:18

reisionobody's making you update, either05:18
SoulShadowlinux has a long way to go to catch the usability of windows05:19

nathan28ineddhelp: yes05:31
nathan28lxde is nice05:32
nathan28easier than unity05:32
ZeloZelosEtherael, there are a few drivers for some systems (thats IF i understand it right) that help use the functions you are trying to use, but if it worked faster b4, probably not it, the reason i asked is if you may have updated/changed them05:32
Lintactually it's terrible to configure05:32

rattatoueI would guess because if someone is new and has no idea what there doing, no matter if there computer can run 32 or 64, 32 will still work on both.06:00
zykotick9ZeloZelos: Bumblebee is the name of one of those hybrid-graphics software06:00
Blue1ZeloZelos: http://pkill-9.com/ubuntu-2-go/06:00
lucascastroarubin: cause 32bits run on both machines.06:00
lucascastro32bits and 64bits06:00
ZeloZelosthank you Blue1 cant wait to dig in :)06:00
Diaoeri think 32bit soft is  much than 64bit,and 32bit hardware is still more06:00
Blue1ZeloZelos: leave me some feedback - let me know how it goes06:00
sacarlsonZeloZelos: ya I'm not sure it's worth the trouble,  just create another partition on the hd you have and try install a secound copy of ubuntu there06:01
haze__how do you join a second irc server on xchat ?06:01
Blue1ZeloZelos: only 16 semiconvenient steps06:01
cowslammerblue1 pls re-open the private channel06:01
Blue1haze__: /j #channelname06:01
ZeloZelossacarlson, heh...didnt even think of that..good lookin out man!06:01
rhin0arubin - because most machines were 32 bit06:01
haze__bluel no a second server without disconnecting from the first server06:01
Blue1haze__: oh don't use xchat so dunno -- I have use irssi though06:02
superdave321haze__: on your contact list, Room>Join...06:02
rhin0haze__:  add server06:02
cowslammerblue1 vlc crashed the same way the other app06:02
Saber-in irssi you just type /connect <othernetwork>06:02
ZeloZelosBlue1, dont look too daunting to me @) ill get it going now, thanks again, im gonna do both, make the usb and a new partition to mess with, the usb ill make it a pocket copy to take to friends n show off hahaaa06:02
Blue1cowslammer: okay let;s go to im?06:02
haze__in mirc its /server -m  servername   to connect to multiple servers06:03
haze__not sure about xchat though06:03
Blue1ZeloZelos: hopefully avoid the pitfalls....06:03
WaffleGodhttp://imgur.com/hbwCr idk if anyone can see the error06:03
WaffleGodWill this disk still work06:03
ZeloZelosBlue1, n ill be sure to let you know how it went06:03
ZeloZelosin the comments06:03
Blue1ZeloZelos: thanks06:04
Diaoeri use the web.freenode.net,because soft version cant connect to freenode server06:04
Saber-WaffleGod: nope06:04
ZeloZelosi actually did this b4 but i used a microsd, and adapter, but you cant boot from that config06:04
Jordan_UWaffleGod: Probably not.06:04
Saber-Burn another one.06:04
Blue1ZeloZelos: yeah it's slower on a micro sd, depends on what class.06:04
ZeloZelosit was old06:04
Blue1ZeloZelos: and ext4 seems to work fine, no need to use ext2 -06:05
Jordan_UZeloZelos: You can boot from an SD card, as long as the firmware supports booting from USB (or from its internal card reader).06:05
Saber-There's a chance the error is some part of the cd you won't use in your install, but unless that's the last cd for a hundred miles, it's better to juts burn a new one06:05
WaffleGodI actually dont have another cd06:05
WaffleGodand I am new to ubuntu06:05
WaffleGodSo i figured I would come here and ask06:05
Jordan_UWaffleGod: Do you have a flash drive?06:05
WaffleGodJordan_U Not where I am right now06:06
=== RenatoSilva is now known as Pikkachu
gomeThis may be the wrong spot to ask but the support from the website directed me here, can anyone answer a quick question on installing ubuntu?06:06
ZeloZelosJordan_U it wouldnt boot from the adapter with the microsd in it, probably works with an sd card though06:06
gomeAfter booting from a usb drive, I hit install, and i'm treated to a seemingly unending screen of ................ I can hit esc to cancel and enter to start again. Is this the installation process or does there seem to be a problem?06:06
sacarlsonWaffleGod: do you have a usb flash disk (key drive)?06:06
PikkachuJordan_U: oh I got oneiric installed lalala lalala06:06
Jordan_Ugome: That is definitely *not* the installation process :)06:07
WaffleGodsacarlson not where I am now06:07
Jordan_Ugome: How did you create the USB drive?06:07
BsimsI got my new hw picked out 2nd gen core i5-2500, intel BOXDH67BLB3, 8 gig of ddr3, and a 1tb Caviar Black... any issues anyone know about graphics or stabilty wise?06:07
ZeloZelosgome did you use unetbootin or universal to install the installer/live cd ... and did you choose one of the recommended dist from the pulldowns or your own, if its your own it prob wont work06:07
Pikkachugome: screenshots?06:07
WaffleGodHow do I know what part of the cd is the error?06:07
gomehah. I figured as much. I used the unetbootin06:07
Saber-I like that my problem is too weird for anyone to have any idea how to help, lol06:07
gomesorry the universal06:07
BsimsSaber-: heh whats the issue?06:07
sacarlsonWaffleGod: I assume from the error that the drive or the media is bad06:08
ZeloZelosgome downloaded a differant one instead of the ones listed?06:08
Saber-Why can't my mediatomb or mythtv user access a symlink'd directory in their /home... unless I am currently logged into the server06:08
PikkachuSaber-: what problem06:08
gomeand i downloaded 11.10 from ubuntu website06:08
Blue1Saber-: permissions?06:08
BsimsSaber-: did you check the permissions for the destination of that symlink?06:08
WaffleGodsacarlson I think its my disk drive06:08
PikkachuSaber-: oh sorry no idea06:08
ZeloZelosgome the installer for dvd's and such wont run right but the installer program will boot on some of them06:08
gomeand don't have screenshots atm, working on a different comp06:08
WaffleGodI am not 100% sure however06:08
Saber-If I ssh in, it works fine.  If I logout, it disappears from the mediatomb library06:08
sacarlsonWaffleGod:  so without eather a cd media or flash drive do you have another linux system that is running within access?06:08
X-tonicIs ubuntu considering a python3 move anytime soon? say by around 12.10?06:09
WaffleGodsacarlson nope06:09
BsimsSaber-: assuming your permissions are correct ya got a wierd one06:09
WaffleGodShould I just try reburning the disk, but at a slower speed06:09
Saber-lol ya...06:09
Pikkachugome: I successfully installed the downloaded iso onto my usb stick today using unetbootin06:09
gomei followed ubuntu's instructions i thought on booting from a usb drive to install, what should i try instead?06:09
BsimsWaffleGod: Yup and check the md5sum for it06:09
ejvyou don't need to wait for ubuntu, to get in on python3+06:09
WaffleGodBsims checked the md506:10
sacarlsonWaffleGod: I have installed ubuntu from hd to hd,  ok that almost covers it other than boot pxe06:10
WaffleGodits good06:10
PikkachuX-tonic: applications need to be compatible with python 3 for it starting becoming default06:10
Saber-I guess I can just move the media into mediatomb's directory.06:10
ZeloZelosBlue1 is it necessary to make the windows partition on it?06:10
BsimsYeah try it on a lower speed, but it should work06:10
gomeIt starts with Loading /casper/vmlinuz.... then continues with the ......s btw06:10
X-tonicejv, yeah, i know i could just download and use py3, but py3 is been around for more than a year now06:10
WaffleGodok, afk06:10
sacarlsonWaffleGod: I have installed systems over ethernet with pxe but never used windows as a host but it can be done06:10
Blue1ZeloZelos: no, but some people want that, that is how to do it though06:10
X-tonicand now i believe most of the apps work with py306:11
ZeloZelosBlue1, ah ok06:11
* Bsims is off to bed06:11
WaffleGodsacarlson I am not that good with this stuff, yet, and dont really have another computer I can use06:11
PikkachuX-tonic: so you'd expect everybody or like 90% to have migrated from py2? that didn't happen afaik06:11
gomei'm wondering if maybe i missed some sort of setup process before where i'm at06:11
WaffleGodwell, imma do it at 1x write speed06:11
WaffleGodcant go wrong there06:11
PikkachuX-tonic: yeah your belief is wrong afaik06:11
Jordan_Ugome: It's probably a bug of some sort, rather than an error on your part.06:11
sacarlsonWaffleGod: then I would wait and buy a usb flash drive for like $4 and do it later06:12
terminhellgome: have you tried dd?06:12
Pikkachugome: can't you just do it again, unetbootin?06:12
gomethanks, yeah I can try that. It took an hour and a half for some reason to burn the iso though06:12
WaffleGodsacarlson I am going to try burning it at a really low speed and see if it works06:12
gomeand what's dd?06:12
sacarlsonWaffleGod: yes always use the slowest speeds posible06:13
terminhellill take that as a no. nvm, not sure how easily it would be to use to burn a cd anyways06:13
WaffleGodwas using 12x before, gunna try on like 2x06:13
Pikkachugome: it took me no more than 5 minutes to extract the iso onto the usb stick, yours seems a bit slow no?06:13
Jordan_Ugome: Can you try booying the USB on another machine?06:13
BoomerBileis mod_rewrite enabled by default in ubuntu with apache2 freshly installed?06:13
rhin0usb-creator-gtk I always use06:13
rhin0it can take a while06:13
terminhellusb 1.1 drive????06:14
PikkachuBoomerBile: I don't believe it is06:14
ZeloZelosok, off 2 reboot n install to usb06:14
gomeit was extremely slow, i'm not sure why it took so long. thought it was strange too. This system I am on should be more than capable unless the usb drive i'm usually is just extremely terrible06:14
BoomerBilePikkachu, what do i need to install to get it working?06:14
X-tonichm.. possibly.. but on gentoo for instance, about half a year back too, i could get nowhere with py3. Now however, each and every package I have installed, has been installed with py 3.2 and all of it working fine.06:14
rhin0usb is slow06:14
rhin0its a lot of data06:14
gomei can try dual booting on this system06:14
ZeloZelosthank s for the help guys and keep gettin da linux on !06:14
sacarlsonBoomerBile: I don't think so but not sure06:14
PikkachuBoomerBile: no idea06:14
rhin0i mean flash is slow to write to06:14
PikkachuBoomerBile: I'd search for some package06:14
terminhellwith unetbootin you may have to set the 'boot' flag in gparted or something else06:15
=== mint is now known as c31r2g
sacarlsonBoomerBile: as I have mod_rewite active on mine but I think I changed it or a package I installed did06:15
terminhelland in some bios's you have to manually select the usb drive from the bios dev boot options06:15
X-tonicAll I am saying is that at sometime the leap has to be made, and jumping to py3 as default will only accelerate the py3 migration of obsolete packages06:16
Pikkachurhin0: I've downoaded oneiric iso today abd burnt it onto my sub stick with unetbootin, it took me just a few minutes... it was just about extracting not burning06:16
terminhelland sometimes just keep trying to boot from it a few times. Unetbootin is buggy at times06:16
gomegotcha yeah i'll try it again06:16
Pikkachugome: I think it shouldn't be that slow even in USB 1.x06:16
gomei'm trying to see if i can boot from the system i'm chatting on06:16
Pikkachugome: it's not a burning process, it just extracts the iso onto your usb drive06:16
terminhellwell, its a bit more than that06:17
gomeoh gotcha06:17
rhin0anything <= 5 minutes isn't an issue - point is whether it succeeds in the burn06:17
gast2roothowto hide fast user switching in main bar?06:17
c31r2glive disk ubuntu 11.04 with unetbootin doesnt work atleast for me,use pendrivelinux soft instead06:17
BoomerBilethanks sacarlson06:17
terminhellwith usb, best bet is dd. period.06:17
* rhin0 never got ubuntu 10.10 to install once06:17
rhin0gave up on it06:18
gomewould running ubuntu from this computer, installing inside windows from this usb drive i created from universal usb installer serve as the testing i need to determine the problem?06:18
rhin0skipped it (won't install)06:18
zykotick9terminhell: almost as good as cat ;)06:18
gomeor should i try something other than universal usb installer?06:18
BoomerBilesacarlson, i guess it's a2enmod rewrite, then edit the conf files to allowoverride...06:18
sacarlsonBoomerBile: sounds about right06:19
BoomerBilesacarlson, thanks06:19
sacarlsonBoomerBile: can't hurt to enable it two times even if it's already active06:19

rattatoueanyone got xbmc in ubuntu? I installed it and when I go to start it, it complains about missing OPENGL or something, but I am running on the latest Nvidia driver.06:25
terminhelldownload the OS iso manually. then with unetbootin select the .iso image option to manually search for the file.06:25
gomedone that06:25
rattatouegome, by any chance is the USB not booting?06:26
gomestill don't know why the installer takes so long to extract onto the usb06:26
gomeit is booting to usb, i get the GUI for ubuntu at boot, so it is right?06:26
rattatouegome, yes06:26
terminhellit has to unzip a huge amount of data06:26
superdave321rattatoue: Someone here was just saying that the newest nvidia driver actually breaks opengl...06:26
rattatouesuperdave321, *facepalms*06:27
gomeI apologize for being painfully new to linux. I've only used windows and I've read up on ubuntu and trying to install it on the laptop to see what i think06:27
gomethe extraction is taking forever again06:27
rattatouesuperdave321, okay ty06:27
superdave321rattatoue: np06:27
sacarlsongome: is it a very old laptop?06:27
rattatouegome, maybe your computer is slow06:28
gomethe laptop is pretty old, my computer should be fine06:28
rhin0I always use usb-creator-gtk (sudo usb-creator-gtk) gome - blank the usb then select the image iso, write - is always straightforward - so what if it takes a few minutes - 100% reliable06:28
gomeunless i'm missing something06:28
sacarlsongome: try another usb plug if available06:28
rhin0otherwise write to a dvd - just write the iso (right click on the file in the file manager (nautilus)) and write after setting properties so it writes at the lowest speed06:29
gome3 ghz athlon 64 x2, 6000+, 3 gbs ram06:29
gomei'll try another plug, good idea06:29
rhin0possibly his usb key is not blanked still has the windows filing system on it06:29
plouffewhen I type "arp" it shows me about 50 IP addresses, all on the same interface, but only two entries with associated MAC addresses. Anyone know what all those entries doing there?06:29
rhin0way to blank them in windows06:29
sacarlsongome: I have a system that has two usb buses one is the older 1.X and one it 2.X and one boots much faster than the other06:29
gomeand i may try usb-creator-gtk instead, thanks06:29
gomealright thanks06:29
rhin0just play around with it until you manage to blank the usb - sometimes you get locks with the usb filing system vs ubuntu06:30
rhin0unplug etc or even reboot06:30
rhin0always works eventually06:30
rhin0just usb complication06:30
gomegotcha yeah i've formatted it a couple times just to check06:31
terminhellplouffe: it could be other devices in your area.06:32
sacarlsonplouffe: I'm guessing wifi and your on a fringe of it and each reconect it provided another address06:33
* rhin0 musta re-formatted written iso to usb key hundred times06:34
sacarlsonplouffe: or it could be others on the wifi fringe06:34
rhin0always reliable with usb-creator-gtk - generally on 32  bit ubuntu 10.04 cheap laptop06:34
plouffesacarlson, these entries are all for eth106:34

rhin0sometimes it's simpler just to cut a cd or dvd -- usb can be more problematic06:36

terminhellusb's do have a finite amount of writes. They will fail eventually just like any other drive06:37

terminhellzykotick9: thanks, i didnt want to explain that06:38
Ludlowdo you know what my kde is crashing and the killing itself?06:38
sacarlsonplouffe: I'm not sure where your dhcp is running, if your a normal house it would be running in your adsl router but you can disable that one and run a dhcp on your ubuntu to detect what they are06:38
terminhelldoes kde rely on dbus?06:39

terminhellWaffleGod: if you have a bad disk, the problem will get worse. buy a new drive06:39

theadmin...I just tried to tab-complete "morning" :/07:49
theadminbetz1: The module might be renamed (iirc it's "nvidia-current" now), but then again if you're using an unofficial kernel, some modules might fail to work with it07:50

erik32533yea its verified09:17
Jordan_Utonesfrommars: If you use the "Detect any GRUB2 installation" option from Super GRUB2 Disk does grub load properly?09:19
gordon1234georgieee, if you are doing an rsync -av (standard backup option), it does take a while as it copies all the file permissions etc. Even slower if you are doing it between different physical drives. Still faster than anything else I have found09:19
gordon1234georgieee, it will be much faster the second time as only the changes are copied!09:19

erik32533wish chrome wud allow u to change interface09:22
Jordan_Utonesfrommars: If it does, then that likely means that the core.img embedded after the mbr does not match the one in /boot/grub/. If grub still fails to load, then you've probably run run into a grub bug.09:22
cowslammertheadmin i hate to argue but there is no menu09:22
gordon1234georgieee, copy/paste won't copy the file permissions properly and will give you issues if it is for back/restore purposes. Fine for just copying stuff though and I am sure there is an rsync option that would do this.09:22
theadmincowslammer: Oh, uh, I mean, the top panel, at the *very* top of the screen (not top of window, top of screen)09:22
theadmincowslammer: Hover your mouse over there and you'll see the usual menu appear09:23
tonesfrommarsJordan_U: Yes, it appears to load the original config, with my splash image and menu options.09:23
tonesfrommarsWith one difference, there are many duplicate entries for the linux OS09:23
Jordan_Utonesfrommars: OK. That means that *properly* running grub-install should fix the problem.09:23
Jordan_Utonesfrommars: Can you pastebin the output of "debconf-show grub-pc"?09:24
tonesfrommarsJordan_U: One other piece of relevant info to bounce off you: I first apt-get installed grub, but then later realized I needed grub-pc, I think that explains the legacy grub on the one drive.09:25
theadminerik32533: "change interface"? It has tons of themes, you can drag buttons around freely, extensions add nifty bits to the interface too.09:25

=== MeriD is now known as MeirD
Jordan_Utonesfrommars: OK. I think that grub-install might not be running properly on upgrades. I recommend running "sudo upgrade-from-grub-legacy". It will ask you what drives to install grub to, use space bar to select devices and the enter key to continue. You should select both drives (that way booting won't fail if your BIOS decides to boot from a different drive) but you should *not* select any partitions.09:31
cowslammercan someone tell me how to get sun java?09:32
Jordan_U!java | cowslammer09:32
ubottucowslammer: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.09:32

Pikkachujrewhy is noeiric-backport called that way? is it in this sense http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backporting ?09:41
Pikkachuwhy is oneiric-backport named that way when description says unsupported updates? I can't get it09:44
theadminPikkachu: Because it has package versions from Precise.09:46
Night_furyLittle help anyone?09:47
Pikkachutheadmin: precise packages backported to oneiric? why not just put it there in main repos 'security' and 'update'?09:48
theadminPikkachu: Not so sure really, Ubuntu people have some weird release system (not apply major updates to existing releases, just make users get the newer release)09:48

DangerousDaveHi All!10:07
aBoundMost people tend to recommend LTS releases due to the long-term support. Fixes are more likely to fixed more often so it seems.10:08
PikkachuaBound: it looks like the other releases are steps towards a freeze which they call LTS10:09
PikkachuaBound: so they don't matter that much to experiment with stuff in the other releases, but they wonder to be stable in LTS I suppose10:09

hypeBoyhi, how can i install divx player for websites? or is there any alternative i can use?10:10
PikkachuaBound: I'm not sure if I like this :(10:10
aBoundPikkachu, At least you can expect a more stable release at best. Before moving onto the next upgrade.10:11
PikkachuaBound: but you keep stuck on old software10:12
aBoundUsually, latest releases try to keep an update to date package repository. Yet, there are bound to be a few unstable packages in each release.10:13
PikkachuaBound: you're already stuck in regular releases, much more with LTS :( I imagine they do a lot of backporting for LTS10:13
aBoundPikkachu, Put it this way would you rather have stability or the latest packages?10:14
crizzyPPA's are for updating newer softies you need10:14
aBoundThe saying goes: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". :)10:14
hypeBoyPikkachu: how can i install divx web player. i wanna play divx videos on websites10:14
aBoundLike VIM for example I doubt I'd need a new release when one comes out as it might only include minor features. Yet, if a vulnerability exist in the program itself an update is definitely necessary.10:15
PikkachuaBound: that's why I imagine a lot of backporting...because time is often a bug itself... for example libreoffice releases new stuff with big improvements you feel annoyed not having access to, and lots of bug fixing...usptream tend to not support old versions and encourange updating... while in ubuntu these old versions are still there in the LTSes to be maintained... by Canonical (that's why I imagine a lot of backporting for the most important bugs)10:17
PikkachuhypeBoy: I have no idea10:17
crizzyagain: PPA's are exactly for that - updating certain packages outside the distro updates10:18
aBoundPikkachu, I agree with the whole bugs aspect but with newer features it's only necessary if it benefits you in some way otherwise upgrading may not be necessary. But I know some people like to stay up to date and I won't disregard that.10:19
Pikkachucrizzy: ok everybody has listened to you, so will you create a reilable ppa for all packages forever? btw I don't trust your ppas10:20

crizzystop whining10:20

Pikkachucrizzy: I mean, that's not that simple. Each app you want a new version needs to have a ppa availabe somewhere, that's not automatic, and the ppa must be reliable. For example #pidgin does not support ppas other than theirs10:21
aBoundHe does have a valid point it's just using Ubuntu or any Linux distribution tends to work different from other OS's.10:21

BWorldif I have a directory and execute chmod g+s {dir} and have 755 permissions on that directory then the directories created inside suddenly get write permissions but parent directory is rwsr-sr-x :S12:08
BWorldcould somebody explain that.. ?12:08
zzecoolLegoleader: it seems that youa re facing a bug  , that i found a workaround12:08
Legoleaderplease do tell :)12:09
zzecoolLegoleader: but i dont think its wise to try  it as you look like a novice user12:09
escottBWorld, the setgid bit on a directory means that files inside get created with the same group permissions and ignore umask12:10
zzecoolLegoleader: the workaround includes terminal use scripting etc and things can go wrong  easy12:10
LegoleaderI see12:10
zzecoolLegoleader: just keep making updates as usual and hope for a fix12:10
BWorldhm, what about directories escott ?12:10

BWorldyou expect directories created inside inherit the same permissions as the parent directory (rwsr-sr-x)12:10
escottBWorld, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Setuid12:11
zzecoolLegoleader: one question are you using dual monitors?12:13
BWorldthanks escott , when I read the section about "setuid and setgid on directories" I cannot find anything about affecting permissions , it doesn't say anywhere that when inheriting group/user from parent directory that it will add write permissions to the created directory...12:14
BWorldwich is the case at the moment12:14
=== fayimora_ is now known as fayimora
BWorldescott, I mean, creating a directory gives the assigns the correct uid and gid but it 'adds' write permissions for the group wich isn't assigned in the parent directory :S12:15

Ben64but you have it suid12:16
BWorldyes, sticky user and sticky group12:16
BWorlduser has rws permissions, group has r-s permissions and other have r-x permissions12:16
BWorlduser is me, group is www-data12:17
BWorldwww-data should never have write permissions unless explicit set for some subdirectory12:17
escottBWorld, folders created inside a setgid have to also have setgid set otherwise its not recursive and it breaks with the first subdirectory12:17

=== mohammad is now known as Guest1820
escottgkasi, the syntax you are using (hd0,1) is grub1 syntax. for grub 2 one generally uses (hd0,msdos1) or (hd0,gpt1) depending upon the partition table.13:03
MonkeyDustkippi  "Xubuntu 12.04 is the only ubuntu based distro that handles dual screens well. But you will have to script a little to get it working permanently."13:04
kippidual screens are working fine, just the tool bar is a pain13:05
gkasiescott, I dont have msdos or windows on the box. It is a pure ubuntu experience. I get the following when I 'ls'. (hd0) (hd0,msdos3) (hd0, msdos2) (hd0, msdos1)13:05
escottgkasi, msdos just means you have an msdos partition table (normal mbr partition table) as opposed to a gpt table13:07
escottgkasi, try set root='(hd0,msdos#)'13:08
gkasiescott, thanks for that. But I m not familiar with gpt table. Because I dont have that, can you advise which of the three msdos1, 2, 3 I need as a combo to boot up?13:08

escottgkasi, but you are assuming you don't have a /boot partition (by your use of /boot/grub)13:17
gkasiescott, I used to have a boot partition till this morning when I decided to restart the box. Since the restart I'm stuck with this error. Whilst I dont know what those commands mean, I m following http://karuppuswamy.com/wordpress/2011/09/09/how-to-fix-grub-rescue-prompt-without-live-cd-for-grub2/13:18

OerHekstehowe, for 12.04 questions & support, ask in #Ubuntu+113:19
escottgkasi, there are two main reasons why you would get a sudden boot failure. (a) a corrupted partition in which case you need a livecd to fsck the filesystem (b) a change to your partition tables which would not happen without your knowing about it13:20
gkasiescott, yeah corrupted partition seems like a candidate. I m downloading the Ubuntu 10.10 iso at the moment. Could you tell me the fsck command to fix the partition?13:21

apporcescott: you think kvm can virtualize one CPU with vmx?13:57
sacarlsonZerpex: I assume you want it to have privlige but giving it also provides the opertunity  for php to change it13:57
Zerpexsacarlson: I know.. it's pretty easy in php, but shouldn't be needed to create a PHP script that changes the permissions of the folders - there should be a default group-ownershio of the folders to www-data13:57
sacarlsonZerpex: yes anything php creates will be owned by www-data as set by priv in appache13:58
escottapporc, im not sure what you mean by virtualize one cpu. but i believe that recursive kvm does work (although its more of a technology demo than an intended use)13:58
ubottuThis is not a file sharing channel (or network); be sure to read the channel topic. If you're looking for information about me, type « /msg ubottu !bot ». If you're looking for a channel, see « /msg ubottu !alis ».13:59
Zerpexsacarlson: not the files php creates.. let's say I log into ftp on the server, and rightclick, and choose 'new file' then the group should by default be set to www-data13:59
sacarlsonZerpex: you have more than apache set to access the same file set?13:59
apporcescott: sorry, not virtualize, should be "virtual out "13:59
ankitbabhijit, /dev/ttyACM013:59
Zerpexsacarlson: nevermind, the commands I was looking for was chgrp -R www-data /var/www and chmod g+s /var/www14:00
sacarlsonZerpex: so you have an ftp server runing on the same directory under a different user?14:00
sacarlsonZerpex: sorry never used chgrp14:01
apporcescott: because kvm need it's host machine has one CPU with virtualization technology, vmx for intel ,e.g. I don't know whether kvm can virtual out one CPU with vitualiation technology14:01
Zerpexsacarlson: I have a ftp access to /var/www indeed14:01
|newbie|help me with sound..i have a sony vaio laptop e vpceb45fg..when i installed ubuntu it didnt have sound i added some lines to the grub and i got it back..but when i inserted headphones it is gone again14:01
apporcescott: if we want to install kvm on one kvm's client host ,this client must have one CPU with virtulization technology.14:02
sacarlsonZerpex: ok see I didn't know that part but I might have just change ftp user to www-data but that's only because I'm ignorant14:02
Zerpexsacarlson: indeed, but we're 10 developers, with different access14:03
escottapporc, and yes i believe that they have emulated that, but i think it is more of a demo than an intended tool14:03
apporcescott: thanks.14:03

Zerpexsacarlson: xD14:06
LL2|AndroidWell, bootcamp basically allows you to boot into another OS INSTEAD of Mac OS X14:07
LL2|AndroidIts not a VM program14:07
me-1LL2|Android,  I am not lloking for virtulization either14:07
me-1LL2|Android,  thank you for the info14:09
liberalLL2|Android: actually, you can use your bootcamp partition as the drive for a virtual machine. so you can have osx and the bootcamp drive booted simultaneously14:09
LL2|AndroidBut bootcamp itself isnt a VM program14:10
LL2|Android thats what I meant14:10
LL2|AndroidAlso, yay virtualbox allows for vmdk files14:10
sacarlson|newbie|: if it works on headphones maybe plug the speakers into that jack?14:10
escottapporc, http://s3hh.wordpress.com/2012/01/19/nested-kvm-guests/14:10
LL2|AndroidSo I can use it in tandem with VMware14:10

escottayaka, you don't boot a kernel in a chroot. chroot is not a virtualized container. it just changes what "/" means. since "everything is a file" changing "/" has a lot of affects. all your libraries and files are from the chroot, but the running kernel, the actual interface to the hardware, is unchanged14:49

MacroManHi everyone15:27
bc81heyas, Macro15:27
MacroManI'm attempting to configure a third monitor running from a USB2VGA adapter15:27
MacroManIt appears that the 2 monitors I've got were auto configured15:27
MacroManSo I'm trying to mannually configure them in Xorg.conf15:28
VEndixis there any way to play muonline on ubuntu?15:28
sskasirajanhow can i view the source code of apps in ubuntu!!15:28
LjLsskasirajan: apt-get source <packagename>15:28
MacroManHowever, my current monitors aren't in there. I tried 'Xorg -configure' but it gives me an error sayong that x server is already running15:28
MacroManHow can I generate a config file based on my current setup?15:29
zykotick9MacroMan: stop Xorg then run the command (but I though it was "X --configure" but you are probably right)15:29
melvincvActionParsnip, yes, alsamixer seems ok. But I have 3 sound cards listed. 0 - Realtek 1 - Creative SB 5.1 VX  2 - AMD HDMI15:29
ActionParsnipdanileigh79: so its an xbox360 pad.. is it wireless?15:30
MacroManOK, let me try15:30
bc81VEndix: you can tried installing it in PlayOnLinux15:30
ActionParsnipmelvincv: oh those creative things can be a pain, I avoid them like the plague15:30
melvincvActionParsnip, I've connected my speakers to Creative15:30
ActionParsnipmelvincv: have you tried disabling the onboard sound in BIOS?15:30
Lintsskasirajan, on launchpad.net, select a package, a branch and click 'view the code'15:31
MacroManHmm, how odd. When I run Xorg -configure with x server stopped I get an error telling me that the configured devices doesn't match the actual number of devices. I haven't plugged the new monitor in yet15:31
dlentzmelvincv, when you do speaker-test, are you specifying the Creative card (with -d)?15:31
danileigh79ActionParsnip: No, wired... I'm on ubuntu forums right now, it says it *should* work out of box, but I'm in the procecess of updating drivers noow15:31
zykotick9MacroMan: your "Xorg -configure" might not be correct15:31
melvincvActionParsnip, ok, next time I restart I'll try, but, uh, I need both cards as the Creative one does not have front panel audio15:32
ActionParsnipdanileigh79: what is the line that identifies it in the output of:  lsusb15:32
MacroManOK, I'll try your 'X --configure'15:32
ActionParsnipmelvincv: make sure the creative card is set as the outputdevice15:32
melvincvI see my speaker icon in the indicator applet is disabled15:32
danileigh79ActionParsnip: All of my lines are showing root hub except for "Bus 005 Device 002: ID 1bad:f016 Harmonix Music15:32

MacroMan'X --configure' wasn't quite what I was looking for15:36

zykotick9MacroMan: did you see where it put the generated xorg.conf file?  copy it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.15:36
sacarlsonb0ot: man telnet15:37
MacroMan'Xorg -configure' is supposed to automatically create a config file. 'X --configure' seems to be to create one with options15:37
MacroManX --configure didn't create a config file15:37

sacarlsonb0ot: if putty then what you want is ssh15:46
b0otI didn't say I needed to configure a cisco route15:46
b0otconfiguring a cisco router via serial = trivial15:47
b0otwhat I said is that I was able to configure within a cisco router a serial connection on the router with the slip protocol15:47
b0otwhere the serial port is an actual interface on the router15:47

danileigh79ActionParsnip: xboxdrv did not solve problem, should I reboot before trying someting else?15:48
mneptokBubo: if you're an Ubuntu users, i would carefully consider using MariaDB instead of MySQL15:48
ActionParsnipdanileigh79: did you load the driver module in?15:48
sacarlsonb0ot: like this The sl interface allows serial lines to be used as network interfaces      using the slip protocol.  The sl interface can use Van Jacobson TCP      header compression and ICMP filtering.  This is arranged by using the      various link-level flags to the ifconfig(8) command: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/hardy/man8/picocom.8.html15:49

ActionParsnipdanileigh79: yes but did you get the module loaded using the instructions you pasted earlier???16:00
danileigh79zykotick9: looks ilke catting js0 WAS soing something... the analog on this gamepad must be wacky as xboxdrv is showing the y and x axis constantly moving...16:00
sacarlson mneptok mysqld defaults to localhost only but can be setup to allow other ip access control16:01
Computer-01mneptok, this is inside of the conf. : bind-address=
mneptoksacarlson: i know, that's why i asked.16:01
mneptokComputer-01: if you want access to mysqld from somehting other than localhost, you'll have to bind to an external interface16:02
_MarcusHow do I chroot jail a user?16:03
danileigh79ActionParsnip: how? I used sudo rmmod xbox, then sudo xboxdrv, then sudo modprobe xpad again, and still not working16:03
Computer-01mneptok, what do you mean?, how can I do that?16:03
ActionParsnipdanileigh79: run 'rmmod xpad' and then xboxdrv again or start xboxdrv with the option --detach-kernel-driver16:03
mneptokComputer-01: edit your MySQL confogs so that it binds to eth0 (or whatever) instead of the loopback interface16:04
ActionParsnipdanileigh79: maybe the command has to be running for the device to work.....16:04
Computer-01mneptok, eth0 IP address right?16:05
danileigh79ActionParsnip: "unrecognized option '--detach-kernal-driver'" I did this with sudo16:05

_MarcusDoes anyone know how to set up a chroot jail?16:09
lewiseasonHave you tried Google or the ubuntu forum, Marcus?16:11
ikonia_Marcus: it depends what you want to jail16:11
MonkeyDustlewiseason  don't say to 'google it' please16:11
MonkeyDust_Marcus  http://www.brudvik.org/2011/02/chrootjail-sftpscpssh-on-ubuntu/16:11
_Marcusikonia: I want a user to not be able to even see anything outside it's home directory.16:11
sacarlson_Marcus: chroot jail? only time you change root is if you more a whole system to a new root16:12
ikoniasacarlson: nope, there are many reasons16:12
urfr332gO_Marcus, here is a ubuntu man on jail  http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/oneiric/man8/makejail.8.html16:12
ikonia_Marcus: ok, well, you have a few options, you can try to lock the level above the home directory with permissions, this will stop the user moving out of it, but it's not a chroot lock, you could also look at a chroot shell, there is also an option with sshd to chroot jail the user16:13
overcluckerWhen I use my bluetooth headset in duplex mode I can record audio, but I cant hear playback. Is there a fix for this?16:13
sacarlsonikonia: I don't see any user options in chroot16:13
ikoniasacarlson: that's fine, if you don't know any, I'm just informing you there are many reasons to chroot, beyond moving a root location16:13
sacarlson_Marcus: but you could just change all other file priv to not let your user see any other files but his home dir16:14
magmaubuntu server shows wich users are using the machine and mem usage when you logon though ssh. Is it possible to do the same thing with the normal ubuntu?16:14
vivekimsitHow can I know that which command I ran on a particular day in my bash shell?16:14
ikoniasacarlson: a user can still "cd /"16:14
ikoniasacarlson: changing the permissions won't a lock a user into their home directory16:15
oCeanvivekimsit: by default there is no timestamp in bash history file16:15
ActionParsnipikonia: it could if you make the folder not executable..16:15
sacarlsonikonia: yes he could cd but see nothing if the priv of all were like chmod 770 or at least other users couldn't see16:15
ikoniaActionParsnip: no, you can still /16:15
ActionParsnipikonia: damn16:15
vivekimsit oCean: So, is there not any solution16:16
oCeanvivekimsit: when you type the  history  command in shell, you will see your recent commands, by default last 1000 I think.16:16
ikoniasacarlson: you to lock a user into their home direcotry, you're suggesting changing every single file on the systme outside his home directory to remove world permissions /16:16
overcluckerI was actually hoping to be able to do my teleconference from ubuntu, instead of rebooting into windows16:17
sacarlsonikonia: yes I guess so16:17
danileigh79_2ActionParsnip, sorry, I had to take a break, I'm outside on my phone... This xbox controller is pissing me off more than having pms... *headdesk*16:17
ikoniasacarlson: may want to think that through a little more as a lot of things expect read access to certain directories16:17
ActionParsnipdanileigh79_2: if you type: modprobe xbox   then hit tab, does it autcomplete?16:18
vivekimsit oCean: Ya! but the list is normally very large so, I was thinking that if there is any command to see the commands of a particular day16:18
sacarlsonikonia: that's the method I use at least on my own home dir so no one but me can see it16:18
magmaubuntu server shows wich users are using the machine and mem usage when you logon though ssh. Is it possible to do the same thing with the normal ubuntu?16:18
danileigh79_2ActionParsnip, I'll try when I go back inside, lemme finish my cigarette16:18
ikoniasacarlson: stopping someone from seeing into your home dir, as to stopping someone from moving anywhere outside their home dir is a totally different concept16:18
oCeanvivekimsit: there is. Add this line  export HISTTIMEFORMAT='%F %T '  to your ~/.bashrc, then source the bashrc again16:18
Mike9863After I login my touchpad discontinues working and I'm forced to enter the command 'xinput set-int-prop 13 "Synaptics Off" 8 0' Why is this, and is there any way I can fix it?16:18
lewiseasonmagma: try "who"16:19
sacarlsonikonia: true but that's the only solution that's close I can come up with for _Marcus16:19
