zykotick9luist: 1) it's dpkg not apt-get to install DEBs manually 2) if you double click it does it not open in a GUI installer (this is a question)?00:02
luistzykotick9: oh yes.. how can i install with the GUI installer but running from the command line?00:02
zykotick9luist: no idea, never done it ;)  good luck.00:03
luistzykotick9: haha thanks!!00:03
ActionParsnipWiz_KeeD: install xfce4  see if its better there...00:03
Wiz_KeeDwhat's that?00:03
ActionParsnipWiz_KeeD: you have a lost of apps on the bar on the left hand side of the screen, yes?00:04
zykotick9!xfce | Wiz_KeeD00:04
ubottuWiz_KeeD: Xubuntu is Ubuntu with Xfce instead of !GNOME. More info at http://www.xubuntu.org and http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/ - To install from Ubuntu: « sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop » - Join #xubuntu for support - See also: !Ubuntu and !Xubuntu-Channels00:04
Wiz_KeeDActionParsnip, yes i do you are right00:04
ActionParsnipWiz_KeeD: then you are running unity, try xfce, see ifit is more stable and/or more to your liking00:05
Wiz_KeeDthat sounds like quite some large change...00:05
ActionParsnipWiz_KeeD: install the package:  xfce4    log off, then log in to the xfce session00:05
ActionParsnipWiz_KeeD: its not really a change, you will still have unity and so on still instaled00:05

Wiz_KeeDi'm a bit reluctant to make major changes due to the fact that i'm not so used with the linux enviroment...is there any way i can switch back if i don't like it? and how will this affect the restart problem? changing the desktop00:06
tomvoleknewbie question, I need to directory which is owned by user tom to be also writeable by http upload .. ,00:06
NyLesis there a disadvantage if i install ubuntu in a extended partition?00:07
ActionParsnipanonymousinuk: start talking at them, use TAB to autocomplete names ;)00:07
ActionParsnipNyLes: none at all00:07
zykotick9NyLes: no00:07
ActionParsnip_Marcus: is it owned by a dfferent user?00:07

ActionParsnipWiz_KeeD: sudo apt-get install xfce4     then log off and log on to the xfce session00:09
Wiz_KeeDand if i want to switch back? :)00:09
ActionParsnipNyLes: logical partitions are stored in extended parttions as you can only have 4 primary partitions00:10
nitinthewizHey all… I have ubuntu 11.10 installed on a desktop with just 1 gig ram. I prefer working from my Mac, so I screen share to get to the ubuntu. Due to the low RAM, ubuntu is painfully slow. I'm looking for ways to remove all system animations. Google hasn't been clear about gconf/dconf and all sorts of issues people have when they break something and spend hours fixing it. Can someone point me to a clear-cut solution?00:10
ActionParsnipWiz_KeeD: log off and log back into the Unity session...00:10
_MarcusWizKeeD: Just select what you want when you log back in00:10
_MarcusActionParsnip: I want them to have write access too, what could I do?00:10
Wiz_KeeDsuperb i shall try then!00:10
NyLesActionParsnip: that's the only difference?00:10
myraftI have ubuntu 11 running on my laptop - but have a "random-ness" about detecting keyboard and mouse - external keyboard and mouse works just fine00:11
myraftI basically have to power it down and restart and have no idea how to diagnose it00:11
ActionParsnip_Marcus: I suggest you make a group, add them to the group then run:  sudo chown -R :groupname /home/foldername; sudo chmod -R g+rw /home/folder00:11
ActionParsnipNyLes: yes, so you can have 3 primary partitions and 1 extended partitions which can have as many logical partitions as you can need00:12
_MarcusActionParsnip: What about "user:" instead of ":group"?00:13
NyLesActionParsnip: thanks for the information lo, that's why i have 1 extended partition it all my other partitions are there, i already have 3 primary partions, thank you so much..00:13
_MarcusActionParsnip: And this for for the whole /home/, not just one folder in it00:14
ActionParsnip_Marcus: the group you make..00:14
Wiz_KeeDhere goes00:14

god-zotacwhats the deal with grub not showing the menu at boot everytime?  I have done 3 diff ubuntu 11.10 installs and one 12.04 install, and they all just go black screen after POST and then the screen kicks back on at the initialization of X.. i don't like this and would like to know how to change it.00:22
OerHeksmyraft, what is the model/number ?00:22
NyLeswhat will i put to Mount Point: option?00:22
slackgurugod-zotac, grub menu is not necessary with a single kernel installed00:22
slackgurugod-zotac, you can always manually edit grub.conf00:23
god-zotacslackguru:: i have more than a single kernel installed. and i don't like the idea that grub isn't showing the menu incase the kernel fails to boot in the future, or i'd like to see to be able to boot a diff kernel00:23

slackguruthe memory mismatch is why I can't do a standard CD install on that machine god-zotac00:29
god-zotacthis is really driving me crazy, because i like to use customized kernels, and be able to boot a kernel compiled for proprietary fglrx driver, or one that is built for the radeon open source driver, and I also like to have the option to boot another OS visible,  i can't figure out what is wrong here with grub2 that it isn't showing the menu for me at all00:29
AntaresIs there any way to force powertop to save its tuning settings? They are lost each time I restart. :/00:29
slackguruNyLes, what partition are you formatting?00:30
slackguruNyLes, if you are formatting the / partition that is your mountpoint00:30

psusiZac_o_O, I prefer dump, most people use tar00:41
AntaresYellowGTO, what do you mean?00:42
psusi_Marcus, because you didn't install and configure an ftp server ( correctly )?00:42

YellowGTORun two cards at the same time00:42

slackguruglad to hear it god-zotac00:43
myraftI changed the grub file in /etc/default00:43
psusimyraft, then run sudo update-grub00:44
AntaresI wasn't aware that was possible, YellowGTO. You have both cards currently inserted, but you are unable to install drivers for them?00:44

AntaresYellowGTO, I'm not even sure which search settings I can even begin to use so I can Google your question. I don't know the answer off the top of my head, unfortunately.00:47
psusiZac_o_O, as in not tape drives or dvds or removable hard disks that you store most of off site00:47
clarkimusmaxHello, I'm new here (not new to linux).  Can anyone tell me the difference between the priority and niceness fields in 'top'? As I understand it the PR is the scheduling priority. Is there a way to tweak this or is tweaking the niceness the best thing to do?00:47
YellowGTOAntares, I guess I can just try LoL00:47
YellowGTOThanks anyway00:48
psusi_Marcus, are you logged in as a proper user, or anonymous?  btw, ftp should be avoided since it's insecure00:48
AntaresYellowGTO, I don't remember whether you can see which drivers you are able to install while using the "Try Ubuntu" mode, but you can do the Live CD business without installing.00:48
YellowGTOAh ill try that 1st00:48
AntaresIt would be impressive if Additional Drivers offers you both sets of drivers.00:48
_Marcuspsusi: Then I'll use sftp, but for now, it doesn't matter. It is a proper user, named "webmaster"00:48
dotnullDoes anyone know the equivalent program to gnome-power-settings in ubuntu 11.10? I used to execute that program to deal with screen brightness, etc, but it doesn't seem to be in 11.1000:49
Zac_o_Oah got it00:49
mnbv0987clarkimusmax: priority is calculated based on niceness and other magic factors00:49
=== zero is now known as Guest22356
mnbv0987clarkimusmax: change the niceness if youre just trying to "casually" bump up priority. the kernel will choose a priority based on that and other factors.00:50
Zac_o_Oso rdiff to a local source that gets rotated weekly... good choice?00:50
Antaresdotnull, I'm not sure which options are in gnome-power-settings. There is powertop which can enable power saving for USB ports, WiFi, etc.00:50
clarkimusmaxmnbv0987, thanks, I figured that was the case00:50
myraft@psusi - how do I change or based on what is recommended here - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Toshiba_Satellite_L775D_S7340#Touchpad_and_keyboard_are_not_working00:50
psusiZac_o_O, with things like tar and dump, you can make backups, then for instance, email them or drop them on one or more dvds or removable hard drives to store off site, and you don't need the old ones handy to make an incremental backup00:50
clarkimusmaxtrying to copy 147G from a USB drive to /00:51
Zac_o_Oor if I go with rsync - what directories do I need to leave out of rsyncing / ? /proc /sys /dev .....right?00:51
psusimyraft, thought you said you already did?00:51
Zac_o_Oi see00:51
Zac_o_Ogood to know00:51
myraft@psusi:I did edit /etc/default/grub00:52
mnbv0987clarkimusmax: the usb is probably more of a bottleneck than cpu usage; don't be disappointed if you don't see a big improvement.00:52
psusiZac_o_O, at least.. it's generally easier to tell the tool to stick to only a single filesystem... I forget what the switch was for rsync... for cp it's -x, may be the same for rsync00:52
myraft@psusi: sudo update-grub gives this - /etc/default/grub: 38: i8042.nomux=1: not found00:52
Zac_o_Oah i see00:52
stanikihas anyone ever had luck fixing an issure in 11.10 where the display is unknown and there are limited options of resolution choices?00:53
shawnyCan I ask a GNS3 question in here?00:53
psusimyraft, then you didn't edit it right... you need to add the setting in the quotes of the variable I mentioned00:53
tfittswhat do I need to do to change my bash to a regular one.  I created a user and instead of the normal user@hostname $ prompt I just get a $ prompt and none of the default shortcuts work00:53
mnbv0987does anybody know how to disable wifi roaming in 11.10? i'm having trouble establishing a connection to a network where multiple aps have the same ssid.00:53
dotnullAntares, thank you. I'll take a look at that00:53
myraft@psusi: so how do I do something like this  - i8042.nomux=1 i8042.reset ?00:53
psusimyraft, add that to the variable like I said00:54
clarkimusmaxmnbv0987, you're probably right but google chrome hogs resources and I'd like to surf without it affecting the copy too much. Thanks again!00:54
myraft@psusi- I am sorry, i missed it, searching thru00:54
Antaresdotnull, it's available in the repo (sudo apt-get install powertop) and you navigate with the arrow keys.00:54
psusimyraft, GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT... add the extra options there within the quotes00:55
AntaresThere is a tunables section which says either "good" or "bad"; press enter on the item that says "bad" and it'll turn on power saving for that.00:55
jay_why_beeGuys... I am having a dhcpd problem.00:55
NyLeshi again, i have an existing grub configuration in my pc (using it on my windows xp and stuff), can i just add ubuntu there?00:55
AntaresHowever, I have a problem with powertop not saving the settings after a restart, but that may be just me.00:55
psusiNyLes, Ubuntu will install grub2 and add all detected operating systems to it00:56
jay_why_beeI am moving my Ubuntu server from a physical machine to a VM.  Same version (LTS) and so I assumed if I copy the dhcpd.conf and the dhcpd.leases I am all set.  It offers addresses but none of the clients see it.00:56
jay_why_beeSo my log is full of DHCPDISCOVER and DHCPOFFER but not DHCPACKS00:57
tfittshow do I make it so when I ssh in to my machine it automatically runs bash?00:57
psusijay_why_bee, your VM is set up for networking in bridging mode, not NAT right?00:57
NyLespsusi so i have no choice but to install grub2? but i can add my other stuff there?00:57
myraft@psusi: - thanks for the help00:57
jay_why_beepsusi: yes and I see the DHCPDISCOVER00:57
psusiNyLes, it will automatically add it for you00:57
myraftI did that and update grub00:57
=== mike_ is now known as Guest53159
myraftkeyboard not working still00:58
jay_why_beeAnd if I shutdown the DHCPD service and turn it back on the old physical machine, all is good.00:58
god-zotacslackguru:: that should work fine, i don't see what any difference would be from ssh or actually logged into the system, just hope when you reboot the remote machine that all is good, unless you can easily gain physical access to it00:59
psusijay_why_bee, odd.. maybe time to fire up wireshark?00:59
NyLespsusi its not just an OS, to be specific, i have hiren's boot cd, mini windows xp, memtest, recovery console, windows xp installer, plop boot manager etc..00:59
jay_why_beepsusi: packet sniffer?  You leaning towards ESXi doing something to the packets?00:59
stanikidoes anyone have advice on fixing resolution problem where display is unknown?00:59
psusiNyLes, then you may need to add some of them to /etc/grub.d/40_custom01:00
psusijay_why_bee, could be01:00
NyLespsusi thanks, im using 10.04 anyways coz my hardware is too old..01:01
psusiNyLes, so?01:01
psusiNyLes, 11.10 should still run fine01:02
jay_why_beepsusi can I run wireshark in an ssh session?01:02
NyLespsusi it will over ride my existiing grub right?01:02
clarkimusmaxtfitts, ssh shouldn't be different than the user's default login shell. you can edit the laseld in /etc/passwd or "usermod -s /bin/bash username"01:02
psusijay_why_bee, I'd run it on a client machine01:02
psusiNyLes, yes01:02
NyLespsusi really? but when i tried 10.10 it doesn't recognize my video card?01:03
myraft@psusi: any ideas ?01:04
psusiNyLes, do you have an old ati card?  iirc, ati removed support for some older cards from the proprietary drivers, but the open source ones should work fine01:04
psusimyraft, nope01:04
myraft@psusi -thanks01:04
clarkimusmaxtfitts, per google, "chsh" should work as well (man chsh)01:04

psusiNyLes, it should, yea...01:07
psusiNyLes, boot the livecd and find out01:08
NyLespsusi: it wont boot unless  add the option nomodeset.. i mean it boots but only shows black..01:09

NyLespsusi: is it after quiet splash?01:18
roland333I restart the system, press alt.01:19

psusiroland333, how did you format this drive?01:20
roland333As for the DVD-R's i'm trying to use, it wouldn't let me format them.01:21

Antaressomethinginteres, have you looked in the software center? I don't really use wifi analysis stuff, so I can't speak from experience.01:35
somethinginteresAntares: Not atm, I'm not sure how to go about finding an app without knowing its name per se.01:35
AntaresJust type in some keywords you might think the program would use, such as wifi or network analysis, etc.01:36
somethinginteresAntares: I'll have a look now.01:36
mnbv0987can i change the shortcuts on the dash in 11.10? i've never run a network app or media app through there, i don't use this machine for photos or music, firefox is already on the launchpad, and thunderbird is already in the system tray.01:38
mnbv0987the only one i ever click is "more apps" when i'm trying to find other applications.01:38
Antaresmnbv0987, hold alt and then right click on the shortcut in question and choose remove.01:38
AntaresYou can add shortcuts by left-clicking and holding on to something in the dash and then dragging it over to the launcher.01:39

NyLeslol, i tried installing my video card with proprietary, now it wont boot even at nomodeset01:43
Antaressomethinginteres, are you trying to analyze network traffic or do you just want to measure signal strength and whatnot?01:43
Dr_willistxtzttm,  you  are trying /dev/sdb when you may be meaning /dev/sdb101:44
somethinginteresAntares: I'm just want to check signal strength and how crowded the wireless channels are in my area to find the best channel to be on.01:44
jen_how can I video call in pidgeon01:45
txtzttmDr_willis, I was using /dev/sdb but I just tried /dev/sdb1 with the same results01:45
Dr_willistxtzttm,  no idea then. I never use hfs.01:45
Dr_willistxtzttm,  paste the exact mount command you re using to the channel. some one may see a error in it.01:46
zykotick9Lint: i just changed my console font, but even that doesn't apply until midway though the boot process.  I highly doubt you'll be able to change grub's fonts at all.01:46

smw_erpo, which icon? It looks like a cardboard box to me...02:30
erposmw_: The icon for file-roller.02:30
Linterpo, ask theme authors. But it's because archive manager is called file_roller_02:30
OU818well like, I wanna stop windowsing and start ubuntuing and i dont know where to begin02:31

stevelittNyLes, I don't know for sure, but I think it's telling you that you must completely quit X. Which would mean, if you started X with startx, quit X. If you started it by virtue of booting, you need to reboot to CLI mode. Other people can tell you better ways to boot into CLI mode better than I.02:59
stevelittwildman_, Did a program come up when you ran Nautilus?03:00
Thomas__Sounds good, so I decided that I wanted to install ubuntu, but keep Windows 7. Now, I have never done anything with partitions nor ubuntu.

zykotick9stevelitt: if 11.10 uses GDM then yes03:02
mohan_answer from Tim Brookes03:02
bazhanggoose_, choose classic from the login window03:02
goose_err, 11.10 rather03:03
goose_but thanks zykotick903:03
stevelittzykotick9, let me guess, if you're using lightdm, you "sudo service lightdm stop"?03:03
zykotick9stevelitt: i'd guess (i've never used lightdm though)03:04
NylLeszykotick9: thanks your suggestions works fine :)03:04
NylLesbazhang: yes im on 10.04 right now as you guys suggested..03:04
gordon1234mohan_, try this http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW-TO:Install_XBMC_on_Ubuntu/HOW-TO_103:04
wildman_i not sure where you want me to go03:05
gordon1234mohan_, although I don't think it works in 11.1003:05
stevelittwildman_, Go to the place where it gave you the error message, click OK on the dialog box posting the error, then run the menu on the program with Desktop and Pictures and all that (I think you hover or click the menubar at the upper left, and then choose help->about, and tell me what program it says it is.03:05
stevelittzykotick9, Thanks for the info -- I never knew that, and actually had to tweak the grub configuration to boot Ubuntu to CLI, and wasn't that a mess!03:06
NylLesinstallation is done now it prompts me if i would like to run the nvidia-xconfig utility to update my X configuration, what can you guys suggest?03:06
zykotick9stevelitt: :)03:07
Thomas__I can't get into anything ubuntu-related besides the installer, and If I'm reading this boot info script, I actually have to be in ubuntu for it to work03:07
zykotick9NylLes: try running "sudo nvidia-xconfig" not sure if it's going to be there or not though03:07
Lintwhat is the best way to download single precise packahe?03:08
NylLeszykotick9: thanks you're a big help really..03:08
NylLesrestarting now....03:08
mohan_gordon..will do that03:08
LL2|AndroidI should so set that as my quit msg03:09
=== Cpudan80_ is now known as Cpudan80
wildman_ok i have a screen shot for you if that helps03:09
NylLes:( still black screen..03:10
mohan_I am just looking a way to make my ubuntu desktop as a media server...is there a way to do it ?03:10
mohan_if XBMC doesn't work with 11.1003:10
babonkHey guys.  I installed PHPmyadmin and added it to the apache config, but it's not accessible from localhost/phpmyadmin/03:10
dipixmohan_: try "MediaTomb"03:11
Jordan_UThomas__: So you installed using the Alternate / Server install CD rather than the normal Desktop CD?03:11
mohan_let me check03:11
NylLeswhat is the option in grub to boot at CLI?03:11
zykotick9!text | NylLes03:11
ubottuNylLes: To start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode03:11
NylLeszykotick9: ubottu thanks so much..03:12
stevelittwildman_, Good! Now get to the menu on that program (which we now know is Nautilus), and select Go->Network, and see if you get the same error message.03:12
zykotick9NylLes: ubottu is the channel's bot03:12
log!thanks | NylLes03:12
ubottuNylLes: You're welcome! But keep in mind I'm just a bot ;-)03:12
stevelittNylLes, Be sure to back up the config file before adding the word "text".03:13
Thomas__All I did was go to ubuntu.com, click download, click the first "Download and Install", run the burner, then run the disk, click "Install alongside windows" , and select my new partition with nothing on it03:13
NylLeszykotick9: ow hahaha.. stevelitt yeah thanks.. this card is making me lose hope lol..03:13
Jordan_UThomas__: If you select "Try Ubuntu before installing" (or a similar option) you can run a live version of Ubuntu from the CD. From there you can run boot info script.03:14
gbear14275Is there a recommended tool for disk management (Partitioning/lvm) through ssh?  I've only used gparted but this is for a headless machine... no sense to use gnome03:15
gbear14275or rather... how do people do disk management through ssh normally?03:15
zykotick9gbear14275: parted is the cli program gparted relies on.03:15
gordon1234mohan_, I would check out moovida ... its a lot about personal preference though.03:15
Thomas__"Demo and full installation"?03:15
wildman_no it just shows the windows network icon and thats it it us to show all of my other computers when you hit the network deal now the windows icon is the only one that shows but the frist time you hit the net work icon it gives you the error then it just shows the windows icon from then on03:16
gbear14275zykotick9, thanks I remembered that it was based on parted but wasn't sure if that's what people used.03:16
gbear14275zykotick9, can parted create logical volumes?  Or is there another tool I would have to use for LVM stuff...  or would it just be... lvm (I'm beginning to doubt myself)03:17
NylLesim losing hope lol, what's with puppy that it can use my video card..03:17
zykotick9gbear14275: i really wouldn't know, i'm still using regular paritions and fdisk ;)03:17
zykotick9NylLes: old xorg would be my guess03:18
gbear14275zykotick9, I think I answered my own question.  I appreciate the help though03:18
Jordan_UThomas__: What version of Ubuntu are you using? I just tried booting an Ubuntu 11.10 CD and the options are "Try Ubuntu" (what you want) and "Install Ubuntu". No "Demo and full installation".03:18
NylLeszykotick9: old xorg? what do you mean? i can't uninstall the nvidia driver i installed lol..03:19
stevelittwildman_, Install a Samba server on one of the other boxes, and see if you see it in Nautilus. Installing the Samba server should be just an Aptitude thing or an apt-get install thing or whatever Unity uses. If security isn't an issue, temporarily make your home directory accessible on the other computer.03:19
NylLeszykotick9: can i do it with 10.04, that old xorg you're saying?03:19
stevelittwildman_, What confuses me is how it showed the other computers on 11.04, but not on 11.10. I'm assuming all the other computers were not changed. That's bizarre.03:19
zykotick9NylLes: just a theory, but if the other distro uses an older version of Xorg, that might explain why it works with your card03:19
NylLeszykotick9: is there a way to use what puppy is using to ubuntu?03:20
odie5533should /etc/apt/sources.list exist or did the source move somewhere else recently?03:20
zykotick9NylLes: highly doubt it, and remember i'm just theorizing here03:20
XenethHello peeps03:20
Thomas__ Jordan_U :http://puu.sh/hKjg is the menu I am getting.03:21
stevelittzykotick9, NylLes: I used to have stuff like that all the time -- my distro couldn't correctly configure the video card, so I'd run another distro (Knoppix was good for that), it would work fine with the card, and then I'd back up my old xorg.conf and copy the Knoppix xorg.conf to xorg.conf. A lot of times that worked.03:21
krishmishsomeone able to lemme know tips for using backtrack?03:21
bazhangkrishmish, in the backtrack channel #backtrack-linux03:21
NylLesstevelitt: woah? really? what about if i just used puppy? still has the live cd here..03:22
babonkI installed PHPmyadmin and added it to the apache config, but it's not accessible from localhost/phpmyadmin/ .  Can anyone advise me what could be going wrong?03:22
babonkThat URL 404s03:22
stevelittNylLes, BACK UP your old xorg.conf first!!!!!03:22
Jordan_UThomas__: When I boot an Ubuntu 11.10 CD I get to this screen: http://jordanu.dyndns.org/tmp/try_or_install.png Is that what you see?03:22
bludI just installed Lubuntu on my laptop, and I want to output to the tv via vga, but the tv is getting no signal, what do I do?03:22
NylLeswhat's the difference between nvidia-96 and nvidia-96-modaliases?03:22
wildman_no sir all my systems have 11.10 on them and i have two nas boxs that i built and it dosnt see them eather it use to in 11.4 though that is why i am asking for help i will go try that samba thing and see if that works will let you know in just a little while ok03:23
NylLesstevelitt: ahahaha ok thanks..03:23
XenethHoping someone would be able to tell me why "tracepath" is installed by default when "traceroute" is not.  Was there a specific reason?03:23
Jordan_UThomas__: Ahh, I understand now. You need to actually boot from the CD to do a normal install of Ubuntu.03:23
babonknever mind just had to restart apache03:23
NylLescan i access ubuntu files with my windows xp? dual boot..03:24
XenethTracepath alway's seems to fail.03:24
limpchi, i have an AMD Phenom II x6 1075T, which is 3.1ghz.  but when i do cat /proc/cpu | grep "cpu MHz" it shows all the cores at 800.000 MHZ??03:24
Jordan_UThomas__: Follow the instructions here http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download to install Ubuntu normally. You can probably skip to step 3, assuming you've already burned the CD.03:24
Thomas__Jordan_ U :I can't navigate my bios with any sort of accuracy due to a screen problem, and my computer doesn't boot from the the CD on default. Any ideas on what to do?03:25
NylLeswhat does free software only option do?03:25
XenethNylLes, You would have to install drives so that windows can see the linux FS03:25
stevelittlimpc, Your computer slows down the processor when not working hard. Run a prime number generator or something like that and you'll see one of the processors briefly hit 3100.03:25
NylLesXeneth: what do you mean?03:25
Jordan_UThomas__: If you don't get my nick correct my client won't highlight your message.03:25
Jordan_U!tab | Thomas__03:25
ubottuThomas__: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.03:25
XenethNylLes, By default, windows cannot read EXT (ext3 or ext4), so windows cannot see those partitions.  you would have to change that.03:26
NylLesXeneth: but linux can read windows FS?03:27
Jordan_UNylLes: Correct.03:27
NylLesJordan_U: ok thanks..03:27
Jordan_UNylLes: You're welcome.03:27
XenethNylLes, correct, being open, someone wrote drivers so that Linux can read NTFS which is what new windows use.  I have heard of a way to get windows to see EXT3.  do not know if it works for EXT403:28
NylLesXeneth: thanks for the info..03:29
limpcstevelitt, hmm yea ok. i did dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null and saw one core jump to 3ghz03:29
limpcthat scared me, i thought i got ripped off lol03:29
XenethNylLes,  NP.  happy to help.03:29
bludmy tv gets no signal from my laptop vga cable for some reason, anything i can try?03:30
Thomas__Going to try a restart03:30
zykotick9blud: does you laptop have some hotkey combination to toggle video out?03:30
Jordan_UThomas__: What exactly is the problem with the screen that provents you from seeing the BIOS menus?03:30
bludzykotick9: it does but it seems to do nothing03:31
bludzykotick9: back in mythbuntu hitting it (fn-f8) would blank out the laptop screen, but now in lubuntu it has no effect03:31
zykotick9blud: what GPU does it use?03:31
bludintel 85503:32
bludwhen i go to monitors, or do xrandr it *does* see both the laptop screen and the vga out to tv, so, thats cool03:32
stevelittlimpc, Yeah, I had the exact same reaction the first time I did cat /proc/cpuinfo. There's a bios setting by which you can have your computer run full speed all the time, but unless it's mid-winter and you need extra heating, don't do it.03:32
zykotick9blud: sorry, i'm not familiar at all with lxde.  Good luck.03:32
limpcheh yeah03:32
bludi dont really think its a lxde specific thing but w/e03:33
zykotick9stevelitt: the software side would be cpufreq-set from cli03:33
researcher123the red bulb of CPU keeps glowing for quite long and speed of PC slowed down drastically. What can be done?03:33
XenethGuess noone can answer my tracepath/traceroute question.  :)  just trying to find out why tracepath fails after a few hops.03:34
wildman_ok sir this is wildman again i have the samba setup on the other system and it has been setup through this hole thing and i still dont see it in the network now what03:34
stevelittAh, kuhl, thanks zykotick9. Hear that limpc, the software side would be cpufreq-set from cli.03:34
zykotick9limpc: there should be some GUI tool(s) to accomplish the same thing.03:35
stevelittwildman_: I don't know. Ask yourself this question: How can I narrow it down just one more time? Think of a diagnostic test that will rule out certain components. You know the first test I'd try? Go to each of those other 11.10 computers and see if *they* can see the other computers.03:36
HoNgOuRuhow do I install cg compiler?03:36
HoNgOuRucmake tells can't find cg_compiler03:36
wildman_no it dose the same on all of them03:37
stevelittOK wildman_, next test -- try pinging between these ten boxes. I really should have suggested that five suggestions ago.03:38
wildman_same error the frist time then just the windows icon shows03:38
zykotick9wildman_: are all the computer gnu/linux based?  alternatives to MS's SMB sharing would be SSH or NFS.03:38
stevelittOK wildman_, ping others from the one, and then maybe from another. Do the pings work?03:38
GhostWolfhi all, is there anyone who can help me with a webcam issue with skype?03:38
wildman_ok how do i get the ping thing i was just there the other day and forgot how i got there03:40
=== avery is now known as hackview
Xenethwildman_, You can ping from terminal or "System > Administration > Network tools"03:41
wildman_oh ya thanks i forgot how i got there03:41
jen_is there a health chatroom here?03:42
GhostWolfi have an issue with my webcam, i have installed cheese and its running but when i try to use skype my webcam doesn't come up on the other side, im using a laptop to test it, can anyone help me please?03:42
stevelittwildman_, I'm currently on, and I want to see if I have connectivity to, so I do this command from the command prompt of "ping", and don't include the quotes. Ping is your most basic network diagnostic tool. If ping doesn't work, then probably nothing will, except if they have an IMCP blocking firewall, and you don't need to know that yet.03:42
xanguajen_: i don't think there is a Health dedicated channel on freenode03:42

zykotick9rootcoma: not really, there was a bug about server/plymouth having to alt+f1 in Lucid...03:47
wildman_this is what it did03:47
ludlowubuntu servers are slow lately03:47
rootcomazykotick9: Thank you03:48
stevelittwildman_, OK good, you know you have connectivity. How do you narrow it down more? Think of a good way and tell me.03:48
kettererdoes anyone know how to reinsall all the packeges  that i lost OR fix my dependancies problem03:48
zykotick9ketterer: if you have broken packages you can try "sudo apt-get -f install" as a general fix, but doubt it will do anything.03:48
kettererit has not03:49
stevelittHey wildman_, I think the reason we've reached an impasse is neither of us knows exactly what Nautilus does or how it works or how it detects other hosts or how to configure it. It would help to read documents about Nautilus.03:49
kettereri tried 'sudo apt-get clean all' and 'sudo apt-get -f install" and 'sudo apt-get update'03:50
wildman_ok thanks i will go and see what i can learn then thanks for your time wildman03:50
Deihmosjust installed ubuntu. for some reason the laptop fan sound is onn full at all times. can't find a way to fix it03:51
Deihmoslaptop fan runs on full.03:51
Xenethketterer, you may need to reinstall if you removes repositories and do not know what got uninstalled.03:51
kettererit as an added ppa, and i do have the history in USC that shows what was remvoed03:52
GhostWolfok going to ask again, can anyone help me with a webcam issue with skype on ubuntu? i installed a program called cheese, start that up but when i go on and call myself on a laptop, im using a desktop on here, i can't see myself with my webcam on this computer03:52
Xenethketterer, then if you can do updates, you likely will need to systematically reinstall everything that got uninstalled.  then remove what you don't want when it's working.03:54
kettererhmm ok03:54
Xenethketterer, it's a pain, that's why I suggested reinstal.  Likely faster.03:55
kettereri dont mean to be lazy, but is there a way to make a list of all the packeges and then install them at once03:55
almoxarifeGhostWolf: look at Xorg.0.log in /var/log , see if the webcam is mentioned first, if it is then life is a bit easier03:55
kettererok i get it03:55
kettereri will try do it03:55
GhostWolfalmoxarife, um just sec i always have an issue with my webcam, normally in windows i use software to be able to use it, but i know with linux/ubuntu its difficult03:56
XenethGhostWolf, if it works in cheese, I doubt it's an issue with the cam.  I bet it's just getting skype to use it.  That's where I get lost.  :)  GL03:57
jak2000su dhclient why not work ?03:57
GhostWolfXeneth, well i have issues with any program not getting it to work, like amsn or skype, even those sites that you can use your webcam on03:58
=== stevelitt is now known as stevelitt_away
XenethGhostWolf, I thought I saw you state that cheese worked.  did I mis-read?03:59
GhostWolfXeneth, did i say it didn't? sorry it does work i can start cheese and my webcam's light comes on and i can see myself in the window on cheese04:00
GhostWolfsorry if i said it didn't or interpit that id didn't work04:00
GhostWolfand for as with almoxarife's post i have the log opened its a big log, so i don't know where to look04:01
almoxarifeGhostWolf: nevermind the log, your issue is configuring skype to use the webcam04:01
tking0036has anyone tried the linux mint mate desktop with ubuntu04:01
XenethGhostWolf, so that verifies the drivers and hardware.  It's making it accessable by other programs where the issue sounds like.04:01
GhostWolfalmoxarife, ok do you know how i would do that?04:01
=== mbeierl1 is now known as mbeierl
GhostWolfXeneth, so if cheese works its the driver issue then?04:01

GhostWolfalmoxarife, when i installed it on the laptop which did the config, but when i installed it on this pc, it didn't and i see the video section in options for skype but don't see any configuration04:02
XenethGhostWolf, it's a bit out of my area, I'm a network guy.  Just wanted to point that out so it narrows down your search.04:03
GhostWolfXeneth, ok thanks04:03
soreaublud: Do you have the tv connected to the laptop?04:03

homecablei installed a new drive to add more space for /var/www/pub should i mount the new disk to /var/www/pub or mount it to /mnt/disk3 and link folder pub to /var/www/pub ?04:04
almoxarifeGhostWolf: are you saying that the configuration options for skype look different depending on the platform?04:04
GhostWolfsacarlson, that looks like its for linux mint distro, not ubuntu04:04
sacarlsonGhostWolf: sorry that's v4l v4l2  and they have a posible fix in that link but I failed to get it to work for me, I ended up getting another $10 cam that did work04:04
bludsoreau: yes i have the tv connected to the laptop04:05
sacarlsonGhostWolf: mint is almost the same we use the same libs04:05
GhostWolfalmoxarife, no i am saying i don't see any config for the video at all it just has the video option under the options for skype on ubuntu04:05
soreaublud: Did you try gnome-display-properties to see if it's detected?04:05
ketterersorry i missed the last ten mins04:05
kettereri thought i minimized it04:05
sacarlsonGhostWolf: you can do modprobe -l |grep v4l  and see if your cam is v4l or v4l2 compatible04:06
bludsoreau: well i clicked on Monitors and it does see 2 monitors one being the laptop and the other being the vga out I guess. Or if I do xrandr it sees 2 screens you know04:06
soreaublud: Can you pastebin the output of xrandr?04:06
soreaublud: to pastebin.com04:06
GhostWolfwhen i go to video devices almoxarife it has a popdown menu to choose the webcam and the only thing i can select is what it shows which is Camera (/dev/video0)04:06
ketterersorry to ask and leave, But is there a way you can just install all packages that were removed04:07
bludsoreau: I'll have to get the laptop online first , but i'll go do that now04:07
GhostWolfsacarlson, well im not going to buy another webcam really, don't have the money and i need to get this to work by the morning04:07
sacarlsonGhostWolf: well then you you could try the preload as instructed in the link04:07
GhostWolfim looking at that right now sacarlson04:08
almoxarifeGhostWolf: ok, the only option is /dev/video...... ?04:08
GhostWolfalmoxarife, for the camera yes thats the only thing that is on the dropdown box for the video device on my skype on this machine. just want to make sure im using ubntu on this pc not the laptop04:09
almoxarifeGhostWolf: want to make sure ........ using ubuntu????? not sure?04:10
GhostWolfalmoxarife, im just telling you this machine im talking to you from is the ubuntu machine, cause im trying to test my webcam on skype on a laptop04:11

roastedQuestion - if I rsync data from 1 system to another over the WAN, do I need ssh keys to be in place for it to work? Does rsync depend on SSH?04:36
zykotic10roasted: you can use rsync without ssh, if you have some other method of transfering the files (nfs for example)04:37

ActionParsnipNyLes: indeed, waaaaay faster06:07
NitroTigerHow could I get wirehark working under normal user?06:07
NyLesActionParsnip: thanks :)) i'll wait for your recommendation, i really want to usu ubuntu lol06:07
ActionParsnipNyLes: looks fine, you will need to have the proprietary driver installed for it to work06:08
NyLesActionParsnip: i tried installing it but still no video..06:09
ActionParsnipNyLes: if you have the driver installed, you can run:   sudo nvidia-xconfig      and get an xorg.conf file made for you06:10
sacarlsonNitroTiger: I had to setup a script to bring up wireshark as sudo, I'm not sure it will run any other way than  sudo06:10
TheMastergksudo is recommended since it's a GUI.06:10
NitroTigerIsn't there any work around06:11
NyLesActionParsnip: ok, i'll try it again.. i should install nvidia-96 right? may video card is NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 40006:11
sacarlsonTheMaster: NitroTiger: agree'ed gksudo should be used06:11
ActionParsnipNyLes: worth a try, you may want to stick to nouveau06:12
NyLesActionParsnip: ok but how can i use nouveau?06:12
NitroTigerWell that works but what exactly hides interface to be seen by normal user06:12
ActionParsnipNyLes: uninstall the proprietary driver and it will be used by default, or change the driver line in your xorg.conf file06:13
NyLesActionParsnip: im using ubuntu 10.04, i click system > administration > hardware drivers06:14
xchrisxsorry guys.. my computer froze. i'll repost the question: having trouble with installing ubuntu (xubuntu specifically), my live cd boots and i can install to HD fine, but when i reboot to run the system hangs and i can't boot up.. where should i start troubleshooting?06:14
NyLesActionParsnip: and it says the driver is not activated. what will i do now?06:14
ActionParsnipNyLes: ah, ten the default will be nv, not nouveau06:14
ActionParsnipNyLes: considered using Oneiric, the later drivers and such may help06:14
NyLesActionParsnip: how will i use ? so i will just ignore what the Hardware Drivers prompt to me that the driver is not activated?06:15
sacarlsonNitroTiger: I think it has to do with it needs to change the nic to be in promiscuous mode so that in this case requires a sudo to change06:15
ActionParsnipNyLes: you could try:  sudo apt-get install nvidia-current06:15
ActionParsnipxchrisx: what GPU do you use?06:16
NyLesActionParsnip: i thought i i should stick with nouveau?06:16
NitroTigerYou might be right06:16
ActionParsnipNyLes: not sure nouveau is in Lucid, I could be wrong06:16
xchrisxActionParsnip, Nvidia Quadro FX 58006:16
sacarlsonNitroTiger: you could probly find a way to allow a standard user priv of changing nic's to promiscuous but I'm not sure how06:17
NyLesActionParsnip: what about the one you mentioned? Oneiric?06:17
zykotic10NitroTiger: you might want to do an internet search for a debian mailing list post from 2011 entitled "Running Wireshark as non-root in squeeze" i'm not sure if the solution(s) provided will work in ubuntu, but there's a chance.  good luck.06:17
sacarlsonNitroTiger: oh you could add your user to a group in sudo that can only run wireshark as sudo06:18

xchrisxActionParsnip, if it helps: i'm installing from xubuntu 11.10 live cd (booting into cd then installing), and when i reboot the system hangs on a different message each time (one was about checking battery status, though i'm on a desktop)06:20
ActionParsnipxchrisx: add the boot option:  nouveau.blacklist=106:20
xchrisxActionParsnip, when i boot into the live cd or from the hd?06:21
ActionParsnipxchrisx: both if necessary06:21
NyLesActionParsnip: ow i see.. i've removed nvidia drivers, i should restart now then nouveau will be be automatically used? if there is?06:22
ActionParsnipNyLes: not sure nouveau is in Lucid, you will use the nv driver which should work06:23
NyLesActionParsnip: if i use nvidia drivers, the xorg.conf that i showed you will be the exact xorg.conf that will be generated?06:25
ActionParsnipNyLes: the one generated will be slightly different but that one looks great :)06:25

TheMasteryiyezhou123: Did you restart the program/service?06:30
yiyezhou123TheMaster: Hi,i input "mlnet" in command line.06:31

ubottugoddard: A high percentage of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..." Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.06:32
TheMasteryiyezhou123: Since it works on a client/server model, I'd think you'd have to do something like `sudo service mlkonkey restart`, but that's all I can say on the subject as I haven't used it.06:33
TheMasteryiyezhou123: For more info on the subject, you could see their wiki at http://mldonkey.sourceforge.net/Allowed_ips06:33

god-zotaczykotic10:: they don't show the packages that are only installed though do they? it shows everything in the apt cache db installed and not installed, doesnt it?07:19

sacarlsonhelioz: yes you can install bind9 or change dns address to an open one like google at
god-zotaczykotic10:: i understand that, but i only want to know what depends on it that is installed. not from everything in the mirrors that can be installed07:21
ActionParsniphelioz: run:  echo "nameserver" | sudo tee /etc/resolv.conf       then retry the web07:21

ActionParsnipvidb: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install wine1.307:23
god-zotaczykotic10:: yes i am very clear on what a dependency is07:23
ActionParsnipvidb: as I said, remove the edgy repos, they will NOT work in your OS07:23
god-zotaczykotic10:: heres the deal.. i want to see what depends on mysql.. i want to see what pulls it in.  not every package that is available in the repositories that depends on mysql07:23

vidbActionParsnip: and what about this : deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy universe , how can I replace it ?07:24
NyLes_i forgot to backup my xorg lol, is it ok to just delete the existing xorg then a new one will be generated at reboot?07:24
zykotic10god-zotac: so use rdepends then07:24
ActionParsnipvidb: just delete the line07:24
god-zotaczykotic10:: rdepends shows the reverse dependencies of mysql that are available. not just the ones installed07:24
god-zotaczykotic10:: and depends will show the dependencies that mysql depends on07:24
god-zotaci am very clear of that, but i want it to only output in the list it produces packages that i do have installed07:25
llutz_god-zotac: install aptitude, aptitude why mysql07:25
zykotic10god-zotac: i'm sorry.  I see your point, my mistake07:25
god-zotacllutz_:: thank you07:25
soreaugod-zotac: apt-cache rdepends <pkg>07:25
god-zotacsoreau:: no, thats not what i want..07:25
god-zotactry it yourself and you will see why..07:26
zykotic10soreau: ;) i does list everything (as i just discovered, not only what is installed)07:26
llutz_god-zotac: you might fiddle a bit with the results to get the _real_ package causing mysql being instlled07:26
NyLes_i forgot to backup my xorg lol, is it ok to just delete the existing xorg then a new one will be generated at reboot?07:26
zykotic10NyLes_: xorg.conf is NOT autogenerated (in ubuntu)07:27
ActionParsnipNyLes_: no a new one is not generated07:27
god-zotacllutz_:: yea what i am asking for is the equivalent to equery d pkgname  in gentoo ;)07:27
ActionParsnipNyLes_: thats why I always say to rename07:27
NyLes_ActionParsnip: hahaha ok il just reinstall it again..07:27
llutz_god-zotac: whatever that is, i don't know gentoo except the name07:27
mrantimsBen64: Thanks07:27
god-zotacllutz_:: it will show only installed pkgs that are depending on the pkgname you specify in the cmd07:28
Jordan_Ugod-zotac: I missed most of the conversation, but "aptitude why packagename" may be what you want.07:28
vidbActionParsnip: I found two lines in /etc/apt/sources.list: deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy universe  and deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt edgy main , well the second one is related to Wine ,I don't know what the first was for and how can I replace it :S07:28
llutz_god-zotac:ok, thats what " aptitude why mysql " does07:28
soreauvidb: you should comment out any lines with references to ubuntu versions other then the one you are currently running, then run apt-get update07:29
god-zotacyep it helps a lot,  the apt-cache rdepends is rather useless unless you was just wanting to check every single package in the mirrors that depended on something07:29
soreauwell, probably remove not just comment07:29
vidbsordina: But should I replace it ?07:29
soreauvidb: If it isnt for your distro version it likely wont work anyway so get rid of them since it could cause breakage07:30
god-zotacmeh. this is still not producing anything relevant to the situation.. i have mysql-server installed, and when i pretend to remove it it wants to remove these pkgs:  libnet-daemon-perl libdbi-perl mysql-server-core-5.5 mysql-client-core-5.5 libdbd-mysql-perl libplrpc-perl mysql-server-5.5 mysql-client-5.507:31
vidbsoreau: Ok, thanks.07:32
god-zotachowever, when i do the aptitude why mysql-server  all i get is this:  i   rsyslog       Suggests rsyslog-mysql | rsyslog-pgsql p   rsyslog-mysql Suggests mysql-server07:32
god-zotaci see no connection in the two..07:32
llutz_god-zotac:  seems you installed recommends/suggests too, not only depends07:33
soreaugod-zotac: Have you tried actually removing it then reinstalling only the package you want?07:33
god-zotacllutz_:: funny because i don't have the rsyslog-mysql stuff installed07:33
ActionParsnipvidb: remove both07:33
god-zotacsoreau::  im just trying to figure out how to see what is pulling things in on ubuntu.. i've not used ubuntu much in the past, and i'm trying to use some common package management features that i see are important.. compared to what i am use to anyway07:34
soreaugod-zotac: So check the depends for each package of interest?07:36
vidbI have a second problem, when I do 'sudo apt-get update' I get an error asking to 'sudo apt-get autoremove' because a packet called "fgfs-base" is installed and its no longer necessary.. and when I do 'sudo apt-get autoremove' I get this error : E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)07:36
god-zotacsoreau:: depends will just tell what the pkg depends on its self..   rdepends with the apt-cache method will show reverse dependencies of everything available, not just those installed.. thats the point07:36
ActionParsnip!info fgfs-base07:37
soreaugod-zotac: I guess I am not understanding the problem.. sounds like you have everything you need07:37
ubottufgfs-base (source: fgfs-base): Flight Gear Flight Simulator -- base files. In component universe, is extra. Version 2.0.0-1 (oneiric), package size 197486 kB, installed size 298492 kB07:37
ActionParsnipvidb: fgfs-base is only in debian07:37
ActionParsnipoops, maybe not07:37
vidbIt wont be removed :S07:38
soreauvidb: See this is why you shouldnt add incorrect repos07:38
ActionParsnipvidb: try this: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8850924/fixpackage07:38
god-zotacsoreau:: the problem is i don't see a readily available tool to produce output of pkg names that are dependant on the pkg you specify.. its not really hard to see what im wanting.. the aptitude why  seems like it would be the right thing, but its not producing any output similar to what packages will be removed when i pretend to remove the pkg that im wanting to know the reverse dependencies of07:39
soreaugod-zotac: But doesnt (pretend) removing the package give you that information?07:40
NyLes_zykotic10 how again to stop xserver? i forgot sorry..07:40
god-zotacdependency trees are normally    Package A -> Package B -> Package C  and so on.. where A is the pkg you try to install,  B is a direct dependency of A, and C is a direct dependency of B.. ok say that mysql-server is the C in the equation.. I want to know what A and B are..07:41
soreauNyLes_: sudo service gdm stop07:41
zykotic10NyLes_: ctrl+alt+f1 then "sudo service gdm stop"07:41

ActionParsnipgogo_: sounds like the drive died, BIOS not detecting the drive is bad08:22
ActionParsnipgogo_: may need to open the system and check connectors (with the power OFF)08:22
gogo_ActionParsnip: I pulled it out and replaced firmly...still08:22

dRounsei had to write a script08:23
gogo_ActionParsnip: uhm I don't know...both? I think disk is spinning...should i remove disk guard and check?08:23
soreaugogo_: If your bios cant detect your hard disk, its likely a hardware issue. Check cables are firmly attached and the drive isnt dead08:24
ActionParsnipdRounse: so we were'nt wrong were we...it DOES work08:24
gogo_why disk utilty is listing sata and pata host adapter....are they ports?08:24

ubottuFont installation basics here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FontInstallHowto - No fonts in Flash? Install "msttcorefonts" (from !Multiverse), "gsfonts", and "gsfonts-x11". For the official ubuntu font, see: http://font.ubuntu.com/08:36
soreauastro5: Well its not particularly a ubuntu issue but did it used to work at one point?08:37
astro5soreau:  yes it worked in the past, my gut tells me it has something to do with me trying the proprietary ATI graphics driver, then uninstalling that because i didnt like it08:37
astro5i think it messed up the linking of GL somehow08:38
soreauastro5: That sounds plausible. Try reinstalling mesa-common-dev08:38
soreauastro5: Also what is the output of glxinfo|grep renderer?08:38
astro5soreau: output of glxinfo | grep renderer is "OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD RS88008:40

Move it to Trash? This link cannot be used, because its target "/usr/lib/libGL.so.1" doesn't exist"09:04

dansloActionParsnip: there's not much to try, the application pretty much segfaults... I cant even select different audio subsystem (only PA is available)09:05

Ben64removing pulseaudio breaks nothing09:07
Ben64i remove it from all my systems09:07
dansloActionParsnip: tried that - I don't think its related... my co-workers experience the same buggyness09:07
ActionParsnipdanslo: not sure, as far as I am ware the one on the site is later, which may help09:07
astro5soreau:  so i just need to remove the libGL.so file only?09:07
soreauastro5: yea then reinstall those two packages and make sure it's restored09:07
astro5ok, thanks again09:08
ActionParsnipdanslo: even works under xpud here...09:08

ActionParsnipNyLes_: try oneiric, it may help09:09

MeirDHowever, I get Permission Denied error... how am I supposed to do it?09:20
llutz_MeirD: echo 0:97:0 |sudo tee /sys/class/scsi_host/host1/scan09:21
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter09:21
ActionParsnipMeirD: echo "0:97:0" | sudo tee /sys/class/scsi_host/host1/scan09:21
ActionParsnipMeirD: the file is owned by root, so you will need sudo to edit it09:21
MeirDwhy mine doesnt work?09:21
MeirDso why not sudo echo 0:97:0 > /sys/class/scsi_host/host1/scan09:21
ActionParsnipMeirD: sudo doesn't traverse the '>' operator09:22

MeirDweird.. I get error: tee: /sys/class/scsi_host/host97/scan: Invalid Argument09:25
ActionParsnipNyLes_: so you have the one currently running09:25
MeirD(and before it echoes "0:97:0")09:25
ActionParsnipMeirD: could always run:  sudo -i09:25
NyLes_ActionParsnip: how will irename it on terminal?09:25
llutz_ls -l /sys/class/scsi_host09:25

ActionParsnipant_: install nvidia-current package and it will work09:47
ant_Ben64, I am sure it will someday - but I couldnt find a glx package to match the driver in the repositories09:47
Ben64ant_: you should use jockey-glx to install drivers09:47
ant_ActionParsnip, I did, and it complained there was no glx driver09:48
ant_Ben64, jockey ?09:48
NyLes_ActionParsnip: this is funny, 11.10 now gives me white screen lol..09:48
ActionParsnipant_: you may need to run:  sudo nvidia-xconfig    then reboot09:48
Ben64ant_: its an application to help with getting proprietary drivers09:48
ActionParsnipNyLes_: blacklist the nouveau driver til you can get updated09:48
ant_ActionParsnip, hard to run from command line  - nouveau didnt work for me09:48
ActionParsnipant_: run what?09:49
ant_I did blacklist nouveau based on a bug report, and after installing nvidia-current (and rebooting) X complained that no GLX was available09:49
Ben64ant_: you should really use jockey-gtk to install nvidia drivers, but first try to undo the nvidia.com ones09:49
ant_ActionParsnip, Sorry, was referring to Ben64 about jockey-gtk09:49
NyLes_ActionParsnip: ok thanks..09:50
ant_Ben64, does jockey have a command line? If I uninstall nvidia drivers I wont have X working09:50
Ben64ant_: jockey-text09:50
ant_Ben64, thanks, will try it later09:50
Ben64just apt-getting nvidia-current doesn't activate the driver, which is why jockey is the preferred method09:51
ActionParsnipant_: run:  sudo nvidia-xconfig    and reboot09:51
ActionParsnipBen64: it activates it every time here, I've not used jockey for years now09:51
ant_Ben64, hmm, that could be my problem - X was attempting the nvidia driver, but couldnt locate the GLX, and theres no nvidia-glx package since natty09:52
Ben64ActionParsnip: so you do apt-get install nvidia-current and then nvidia-xconfig ?09:52
nicofsActionParsnip, thanks - all I needed for 975kB of space...09:52
ActionParsnipBen64: with sudo, yes09:52

vidbHello, I try to add space to my Ubuntu partition using gparted, but I cannot resise it.. anyone may help me please?10:37
soreauvidb: Do it from a live session10:38
vidbsoreau: Yes, I used a live session, but I cannot resize the ubuntu partition.. I tried to resize an other partition and it works, but the ubuntu part wont be resized10:39
vidbI don't know why :S10:39
JessicaMdlentz: no i mean ctrl+c on a directory and being able to paste into a command line without "file://...." prepended10:42
soreauvidb: it could be how you have your partitions laid out10:42
Roomba_Scoobais there anyone connected from an university? I need to download some scientific publications10:43
llutz_Roomba_Scooba:  Do you have any ubuntu support related question?10:43
wesleyHi! I have a question -  I run ubuntu 11.10 - gnome. - When I just even 'touch' a tab (terminal, gedit, etc) the tab moves outside the window10:44
wesleywhich is highly annoying me, and I don'tknow why it's doing that :(10:44
wesleyis there any way I can 'adjust' the sensitivity of this?10:45

vidbsoreau: this is a screenshot, the linux part is sda7, when I try to resize it I get this http://oi41.tinypic.com/1hw4mr.jpg 0 Free space following! even I have + 2 Gb free... When I try to resize the sda5 it goes with no problem :S10:48
vidbsoreau, the screenshot http://i40.tinypic.com/9ub51t.jpg10:48
soreauvidb: Your linux partition is sandwiched between your swap partition and the end of the drive. You only have about 8Mib to expand which isnt much10:50
vidbvidb: there is no way to fix it ?10:51
vidbsoreau : there is no way to fix it ?10:51
ahelhi! I've installed through unetbootin the daily live. Installation went fine but at boot I don't see grub. in fact it switch immediately to memtest86+ :(10:52
soreauvidb: Look at the sizes and do the math. There is simply no more room unless you shrink one of the other partitions10:52
llutz_ahel: daily live = precise (12.04)?  #ubuntu+1 then10:52
ahelI've tried to press 'esc' or 'down arrow' but nothing.10:53
ahelthank you llutz_10:53
soreauvidb: Even then you would probably have to delete swap and recreate it at the end of the drive10:53
vidbsoreau: How can I do that ?  I'm newbie with gparted.10:54
soreauvidb: Short answer: Very carefully10:54
vidbI mean how can I precise the location "at the end" or not10:54
soreau! gparted | vidb10:54
ubottuvidb: gparted is a !GTK/!Gnome !GUI partitioning program. Type « sudo apt-get install gparted » in a console to install it - A GParted "live" CD is available at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php10:54

soreauvidb: But its pretty easy, just give some thought to what you are doing10:58
ubottunouveau is an open-source nvidia driver included by default since Ubuntu 10.04. Currently, 3D rendering is only partially supported. More information can be found at http://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/ | See !nvidia for the closed-source Nvidia driver.10:58
vidbsoreau: How can I move a partition ?10:58
soreauvidb: Depends where you want to move it to I guess10:59
NyLesi want to block nouveau for installing my card please tell me how..10:59
vidbsoreau: You said "move sda7 up", how can I do that ?10:59
NyLeszykotic10: i know you can help me, i want to block nouveau from installing my video card..11:00
soreauvidb: After you delete swap, then you probably want to go ahead and shrink sda5 then for sda7, just tell it to have no space preceding it11:01
soreauvidb: If there is no space preceding it, then it should come right after sda5..11:02
soreauvidb: You can do probably move and resize sda7 in one step too11:02
llutz_NyLes: echo "blacklist nouveau" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau.conf11:03
vidbsoreau: But why should I shrink sda5 ? I already have 2 Gb of free space (http://i40.tinypic.com/9ub51t.jpg)11:03
vidbI cannot use it?11:03
soreauvidb: Well if you only want to consume that unused space, you wouldnt need to11:04
soreauvidb: I was guessing you would choose a lager size so you wont have to do this again for awhile11:05
vidbsoreau: No, I need just to add the 2Go11:05
NyLesllutz_: thanks..11:06
soreauvidb: But if all you want to do is consume that space 1) delete swap 2) edit sda7 and have 0 space preceding and <size of swap> following 3) create a partition in the blank space at the end for swap 4) take note of swaps new name (possibly sda8) then make sure to edit your /etc/fstab on the disk and tell it where your new swap partition is11:07
soreauvidb: step 2) should effectively move and resize sda711:07
vidbsoreau: Ok, thank you!11:09

soreauvidb: Dont worry about the fstab file on the live session partition, it will be nuked when you reboot. The fstab file you want exists on the sda7 partition you are resizing. So after you are all finished with gparted, mount sda7 and then access the file11:21

llutz_Mrokii: do you use less -F option?11:29
Dr_willisMy logic is still logical..  :)11:29
soreaulucid != 11.0411:29

vidbsoreau: sorry I was wrong :$ I typed nano /etc/fstab instead of /media/..../etc/fstab :$.. (even I was in the /media/.../ folder)12:39
sacarlsonvanadium: maybe the file systems are not linux maybe windows file systems that have no owner or perms12:39
vanadiumthe directory is in the home/user folder12:39
soreauvidb: yea / always points to your root folder12:39
vanadiumI am actually using Aptana IDE and those directories were created by way of Cucumber and Rspec12:40
soreauvidb: so if you were in the directory of your mounted partition, you would just type nano etc/fstab12:40
sacarlsonvanadium: but what file system is it in?   the mount command should tell us that12:40
vanadiumit is ext412:40
vidbsoreau:  I typed it but it opened the live cd fstab file ...!12:41
sacarlsonvanadium: ok if it's ext4 and it's now mounted as read write (could be mounted as read only) then chown should work12:41
soreauvidb: just make sure you get the right one12:41
vanadiumusing chown gives me the message: "invalid user"12:42
vanadiumI have tried with a, g, u12:42

sacarlsonvanadium: oh ok so the disk has been moved to a system that doesn't have that user on that system so it can't change to that user name I guess12:43

Chex_Does that mean that another user can't access the disc?12:55
meberhartcan someone explain to me what Wubi is?12:56
ikoniaChex_: NTFS is mounted using a userapce "fuse" driver, which means only the user mounting the disk can get permisssions to that volume12:56
meberharta way to install it on Windows?12:56
ikoniaChex_: (basically anyway)12:56
sacarlsonvanadium: oh that might be the problem then,  maybe try a usb flash drive install instead of wubi.  does anyone know if wubi works now?12:56
Chex_Ah, thanks for the explanation.12:56
luciferwhere can i ask, is there a forum for backtrack or similar Ubuntu Base OS...?12:56
Chex_The reason I want to share its permissions is so that I can make a samba share out of the whole disk12:56
ikonialucifer: check the website you got the software from for it's support resources12:56
vanadiumthere is no workaround?12:57
__Alex_Chex_: That's the problem. Only POSIX-Compliant file systems can store POSIX premissions, such as UFS, ZFS, XFS, Ext1-4, brtfs, etc. NTFS is NOT on the list12:57
luciferikonia, oK tNx12:57

__Alex_Chex_: If you want to share it in samba, you need to format it. Try: "sudo mkfs.ext4 -L SambaDisk /dev/sdXY", where X is the disk ID, and Y is the partition number13:00

ikoniathevaliantx: where did I say that ?13:09
klawdikonia: i've almost wasted half a day now trying to get sound to work13:09
nononoMyrtti: is that the one single reason? that passwords can be brute-force and keys can't? anything else?13:09
sipiornonono: the important point is that no actual credentials ever go over the wire with rsa authentication, which is strictly challenge/response.13:10
ikoniaklawd: it can be frustrating, part of the issues you'll find is that not all hardware is supported out of the box or auto configured13:10
thevaliantxMyrtti, i was asking how to get apt to install google earth, had no idea that i could use the -f flag to do that, but it still leaves me concerned about the other part that apt is complaining about (the b43 wireless driver, or something like that).13:10
JNL_d-snutz: did you have an vm of windows running before?13:10
ikoniathevaliantx: the wireless error is probably a red-herring and nothing to do with google earth13:10

d-snutzJNL_ no, new computer13:11
thevaliantxikonia, just curious, sure it has nothing to do with google earth, but it did stop apt from installing google earth without using a force flag.13:11

ubottuWiz_KeeD: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)13:40

loganrunit doesn't make sense that just because the window is maximized it breaks the ability to drag it using the title bart13:51

subthalamusNyLes: hmm, mine's got it14:28

uKi`how do I disable wget function for my ubuntu users??14:28
geekbrijrib: It's being set for one user and not the other (other users home DIR is non standard).  I set it by adding JAVA_HOME=$( dirname $( dirname $( readlink -e /usr/bin/java ) ) ) to my .bashrc.14:29
jribgeekbri: How are you determining it's not being set?  Why are you using .bashrc?14:29
kubancsipior, NO, i would like to connect hard drives with IDE cable to motherboard (i have an old computer), then i would like to put all the disks into JBOD, so the operating system will see all the disks as one partition...14:29
subthalamusNyLes:do u see it when "apt-cache search xorg | grep video"14:29
geekbrijrib: I'm doing echo $JAVA_HOME.  I'm using .bashrc because thats where I thought you put env variables you wanted set for a user14:29
GneauKi`: apt-get remove wget14:29
sipiorkubanc: yes, a span :-) have a look for tutorials involving LVM.14:30
kubancsipior, so span equals JBOD?14:30
NyLessubthalamus: yes sir..14:30
subthalamusNyLes: initial guess is fat finger but if you're copy and pasting...14:30
subthalamusare you running the purge at su?14:31
jribgeekbri: I'd suggest using ~/.profile ; .bashrc will get sourced for every interactive bash instance.  Anyway, see if it works ok when you use .profile14:31
NyLessubthalamus: copy paste? fat finger?14:31
sipiorkubanc: not exactly. jbod is used to describe at least two different arrangements.14:31
geekbrijrib: .profile not .bash_profile?14:31
NyLessubthalamus: i didn't copy paste anything14:31
jribgeekbri: correct, .profile14:31
subthalamusNyLes: is it possible u typoed?14:31
sipiorkubanc: have a look: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-RAID_drive_architectures14:31

MikeHHi guys. I'm currently on Lucid and want to go precise. I'm told that changing the apt sources and doing dist-upgrade is a bad idea14:34
jribgeekbri: basically (if you want technical details I must push you to « man bash >) .bash_profile and .profile will get sourced once and be part of your environment even when you aren't in a shell when you log into your desktop environment; .bashrc gets sourced every time you open a up a new shell14:34
subthalamusdid those commands come from the link u sent me?14:35
dohertyI can't find the package that contains this command - can you help? http://upstart.ubuntu.com/cookbook/#init-checkconf14:35
MikeHWhat is the best way to transverse versions14:35
OerHeksMikeH, join #Ubuntu+1 for support for Precise 12.0414:35
subthalamusNyLes: lemme have another look at that link, i skimmed it too fast apparently14:35
NyLessubthalamus: still the same result.. :(14:36
subthalamusNyLes: yea, the blogger didnt check some of his commands14:36
jribgeekbri: I think with sudo, you have a different issue.  The environment is initialized differently and even sanitized (though I am not sure if this happens when you use -u to act as a regular user, my guess is it does)14:37
subthalamusNyLes: um, cant be exactly the same result14:37

sukimaCan you encrypt your home directory after a Wubi install? if so how?14:37
Gneasubthalamus, NyLes: actually, you can purge and remove at the same time. purge just gets rid of any configs that came with and/or were generated as a result of installing the package, so that really cleans it up.  also, '--purge remove' once, all of the arguments thereafter are packagenames always14:37
jribgeekbri: if you « man sudo » and peruse the man page by typing /environment<enter>, then use n and N to navigate to next and previous instances of "environment" it may be helpful14:38

NyLessubthalamus: woah, i removed the last remove and it worked.14:40

Gneasubthalamus: I just had the option wrong14:40
NyLessubthalamus: i just typed apt-get --purge remove xserver-xorg-video-nouveau14:40

subthalamusNyLes: sweet, looks like gnea will help u14:41

ontoNewWorld: nope15:08
compdoclucidguy, check for bad caps15:08
NewWorldonto:  Can you locate the man files with a file browser?15:09
ontoNewWorld: trying the same15:09
NewWorldonto:  like are they actually there?15:09
lucidguycompdoc: hmm .. hate to ask but, what are bad caps?15:09
NewWorldonto:  As in go find their location on the hard disk15:09
compdoclucidguy, you just need to look for them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague15:10
ontoNewWorld: nope15:10
compdocany caps that are round on top are bad15:10
ontoNewWorld: haha, I understand :)15:10
gaussblurincis anyone know a good library for generation of pseudo-prime numbers?15:10
compdoclucidguy, or if you can take a decent pic of your mobo, I'll look15:11
BlackAngelPRGreetings everyone , can some one tell me if there is a guide around to extend the current swap partitions ?15:11
NewWorldonto:  Is it /usr/share/man that you're looking inside?15:11
lucidguycompdoc: understood ... they are fine.15:11
lucidguyhave to run ..15:11
compdoclucidguy, there are also caps in the PSU, and those often fail in the same way15:11
ontoNewWorld: aha, it's in /usr/share/man? Yeah then they're there15:12
ontoI looked in /usr/local/man15:12
ontoaha, I think I know the problem15:12
ivovis there any way to retrieve the answers I gave during installation regarding the manual partitioning? I want to use these answers to generate a preseed file15:12
BlackAngelPRGreetings everyone , can some one tell me if there is a guide around to extend the current swap partitions ?15:14
ontoNewWorld: haha, sorry. I made a stupid mistake. ;)15:14
NewWorldonto:  what was it? and good that it's fine15:15
geekbrijrib: This is actually a wildly frustrating problem because I'm using something called buildr to build my java projects, and for some reason even though now JAVA_HOME is being set through profile.d .... when i try to run buildr it doesn't see the JAVA_HOME and i have to tack on JAVA_HOME buildr before each run for it to work properly.  Who knows whats going wrong here!15:15
debsanBlackAngelPR, just resize it15:15
tetella93Excuse me.. I don't know whether to download files.. How can I do this?15:15
NewWorldBlackAngelPR:  Why a guide? Can't you just resize it easily with Gparted?15:15
ontoNewWorld: I redefined MANPATH in .bash_profile but instead of prepending it to MANPATH, I prepended it to PATH. Of course, it couldn't find it.15:15
bazhangtetella93, download what files15:15
jribgeekbri: i have no experience with buildr.  Maybe it uses sh?  try « sudo dpkg-reconcfigure dash » and have sh point to bash temporarily just to see if it changes buildr's behavior15:16
debsantetella93, don't undestand15:16
trever420yay... finally got FOG to work in ubuntu server15:17
ontoNewWorld: Thanks for the help though!15:17

debsanBlackAngelPR, no pm. Ok just install gparted, you want to resize the partition. So unmount it open gparted select sresize option and resize it.15:17
tetella93debsan, files in general with this program. I have just enrolled15:17
geekbrijrib: excellent point.. hopefully that is not the case.15:17

ivovcan anyone point me towards a working preseed configuration files that actually uses manual configuration?15:19
supNowok seems to have calmed down a little in here I'd like to repost my unanswered question15:19
supNowso this morning I wanted to check out the gnome packages... sudo apt-get install gnome (TAB) kept hitting more and suddenly it started installing a million things. Anyway to undo this?15:19
ikoniasupNow: remove the packages installed, thats the only way15:19
supNowis there a place I can see recently installed packages?15:20
icerootsupNow: i dont know if "gnome" is just a metapackge but "sudo apt-get remove --purge && sudo apt-get autoremove" should do the job15:20
ivov manual configuration for partitioning ofcourse :-)15:20
icerootsupNow: i dont know if "gnome" is just a metapackge but "sudo apt-get remove --purge gnome && sudo apt-get autoremove" should do the job15:20
OersupNow, softwarecentre > history15:21
ludlowI'm using halo theme :)15:21
icerootsupNow: /var/log/apt/term.log15:21
jribgeekbri: so you are running buildr as jenkins and want JAVA_HOME to be set in jenkins environment so that buildr knows where to find java?  Is that correct?15:22
geekbrijrib: bingo.  It moans that JAVA_HOME isn't set when i run it (unless of course I append JAVA_HOME=<path> to the command).15:22
geekbrijrib: it looks like JAVA_HOME is set for the user now, but whatever was preventing it from being set earlier must be stopping it from being set when buildr launches a subshell (or whatevr it is, that it is doing)15:23
jribgeekbri: how do you initialize the whole process?  I assume you aren't logging in as jenkins?15:23
hidihodihiUbuntu offers system disk encryption with the alternate install disc, correct? What is used? LUKS? With what settings? What encryption mode/algorithm? Keysize? Passphrase hash algorithm? Iteration count? (Did i forget anything important?)15:23
geekbrijrib: well, right now what i'm going is sudo -i -u jenkins (or su - jenkins) and then i'm just changing into the proper directory and running buildr.15:23
jribgeekbri: try, using "export JAVA_HOME=whatever_it_is" to see if that makes a difference15:24
supNowiceroot: thanks15:24
tetella93debsan, I have resolved. thank you!15:24
icerootsupNow: but its a good idea to read what the command will remove before saying yes15:25
supNowiceroot: yes I will look through it. It didn't seem to effect my untiy, but gnome doesn't load anything (window borders, nav bars, panels etc etc)15:26
geekbrijrib: in the profile.d script or on the command line directory?15:26
jribgeekbri: either15:27

EvilResistanceiceroot, correct.  "Unity" runs off of GNOME3, without GNOME there is no UNITY15:28

jribsavid: see if the wiki is any help15:30
=== DaZ is now known as Guest13482
savidiceroot, yeah I've read that.15:30
* jrib is too slow15:30
geekbrijrib: it blew up at first. then in the profile.d script i changed dirname and readlink to their fullpaths.  I'm guessing when that was getting executed $PATH wasn't set yet.15:30
iceroot!details | savid15:30
ubottusavid: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."15:30
jribgeekbri: and now it works?15:31
geekbrijrib: ugh guess not.  I get an error when i run builder "can't create Java VM"15:31
geekbrijrib: but of course if i set JAVA_HOME before the command it works fine15:31
jribgeekbri: you used "export"?15:32
geekbrijrib: yes.15:32
savidiceroot, I no longer have an osx partition.  Using the ubuntu mac alternate install cd, I didn't install but no icon shows in the boot menu.  I just get a blinking "?"15:32
savidSorry, voice transcribing on my tablet here15:33
supNowthanks iceroot, EvilResistance: I will do some reasearch online to see if I can figure out why gnome isn't loading based upon the log that shows what it randomly installed15:33
jribgeekbri: but at this point JAVA_HOME is set correctly in your environment, it's just that buildr seems to not care?15:33
savidI _did_ an install15:33
icerootsavid: not having an osx partitions sounds good15:33
geekbrijrib: whats interesting is, i changed it to hardcoded JVM (no dirname and readlink) and now buildr works fine.15:33
savidiceroot,  yeah, so I thought15:33
icerootsavid: so your issue is "the alternate cd does not start correctly?"15:34
geekbrijrib: I think whats happening is somehow buildr is launching a new shell differently and whatever is causing JAVA_HOME not to get set, is having it unset there as well perhaps.  Or maybe whatever was cuasing JAVA_HOME to be unset is causing errors with using dirname and readlink... just not sure.  I'm just going to stick with hardcoding it to /usr/lib/jvm/default-java i guess.15:34
mneptoksavid: does your disk contain a partition for EFI bootloader stuffs?15:34
savidiceroot,  no, I installed using alternate15:34
savidmneptok, yes, I kept the original efi partition15:35
mneptoksavid: you might want to esnure the Ubuntu istaller put the UEFI bootstubs where they belong15:36
savidmneptok,  how do I ensure that15:37
sidney_how do i open source list in a text editor15:38
mneptoksavid: do an ls of the UEFI FAT32 partition. is an Ubuntu bootstub there?15:38

mneptoksavid: just to be sure15:40
Lintsidney_, open source what?15:40
savidmneptok, yes15:40
mneptoksavid: OK, so mount the small UEFI partition and make sure the Ubuntu bootstub is there/15:40
savidmneptok, when trying to mount, it says special device /dev/sda1 does not exist.15:40
bazhangsidney_, sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list15:41
savidI think the alternate installer screwed up my partition tables.   Ugh.15:41
mneptoksavid: try repartitioning completely during a clean reinstall.15:41
ZerpexHi guys, do you know how I can make the default LAMP install in ubuntu, run the files as 'current owner' of the file?15:41
mneptoksavid: the FAT32 UEFI partition only needs to be ~100MB15:42
mdgeorgeEverytime I click on the automatic update window, gnome-shell crashes15:42
savidmneptok, OK, so ubuntu will create it's own efi partition if I do that?15:42
mdgeorgeany suggestions?15:42
mneptoksavid: Ubuntu creates no partitions automatically15:43
mneptoksavid: you'll need to tell the installer to create a 100MB partition at the beginning of the disk, format it FAT32, and mount it at /boot/efi15:43
savidmneptok, hmm..  OK.   Will i15:44
savidUgh tabket15:44

NyLeshow to delete a file using terminal?15:46
savidmneptok will the installer then know what to do with that partition?15:46
savidWith regard to the efi "payload"15:46
mneptoksavid: it should, but if it does not, the steps can be done manually after reinstallation.15:46
savidOk.   I'll try that. Thanks.15:47
igneriousmy eclipse is not starting15:47

But when they lock up, the mouse still moves on the screen. I just can't click anything, nor get any keyboard commands to work. I typically just powercycle the machine to get it working again.16:25
EvilResistanceignerious, run it from terminal.  open up the terminal, type eclipse (or whatever it is)16:26

widderdr_willis: what packages do I need to install for them ?17:34
bc81ubuntu 10.1017:34
id_saryth, it tells me I can use proprietary drivers, if that's what you mean. Neither of the prop. drivers are active yet. Wanted to ask before I installed anything17:34
Pikkachualso, how to make default media folders in ~ (music, video etc) into links to other folder without losing the folder icons? I can't find them in /usr/share/pixmaps|icons17:35
sarythid_: You should just download one17:35
id_there's an ATI driver, then a "post-release" driver, in the "restricted drivers" list17:35
id_yeah, I downloaded the driver direct from ATI, but I had read something a week ago about installing one of these, and then the other17:35
Pikkachuwhat's a clean way to share home configurations among users where each one has write access to change them?17:35
id_if all I need is the downloaded version, then that answers my question17:36
zykotick9Pikkachu: my recommendation - don't17:36
sarythid_: You only need one17:36
id_saryth, cool thanks very much17:36
sarythid_: No problem.17:36
Pikkachuwhat's a clean way to share some specific home configurations among users where each one has write access to change them? I'm thinking of links but not sure on how to put the central configs and whether this is the cleanest solution17:37
=== Mike_ is now known as Guest77618
Pikkachufor example, gedit and gnome-terminal configurations17:37
sacarlsonPikkachu: maybe just ssh the files to each?17:38
sarythPikkachu: From the creation of the user?17:38
sacarlsonPikkachu: or like rsync that also uses ssh17:38
sarythPikkachu: If you are going to create the user now, copy the home directory contents to /etc/skel/17:39
Pikkachusacarlson: it's the same pc, my personal PC, firstly I want to share gedit and gnome-terminal confs between root and me17:39
sacarlsonPikkachu: just symbolic link the files between if it's the same system17:40
sacarlsonPikkachu: ln -s17:40
brett__hi people , how can I set vlc as default player, im using gnome classic and when I right click in nautilus it gives me the open with another application but it dosnt give me the option to select always use this application :( please help17:40
Pikkachusaryth: preferably but not necessarily. But note I want configs to point to the same place so that if I change one config, it changes to all users pointing to them17:40
Pikkachusaryth: where each one has write access to change them -- so no /etc/skel17:41
sacarlsonPikkachu: again symbolic link the same file to all the users directory files17:41
sarythPikkachu: Use a symb. link, as sacarlson said. The only problem with this method is that one user doesn't get write.17:41
sacarlsonPikkachu: you can have more than one sybolic link to one file17:41
Pikkachusacarlson: do you think it's the cleanest solution? what place you'd suggest to keep the configs? /etc/skel itself?17:41
kk23which software is best to make clone a disk with linux and windows?17:42
Pikkachusacarlson: oh sorry no write access, so not /etc/skel17:42
sarythkk23: You can use dd17:42
sacarlsonPikkachu: ya then even newly created users will have the same config17:42
kk23saryth dd i read an article took long time17:43
sacarlsonPikkachu: sorry I'm not very security minded17:43
Pikkachusacarlson: but /etc is not writable for regular users, so it's a non-go17:43
kk23i though to use Gddrescue17:43
sacarlsonPikkachu: you can change a single file in /etc to be 777 if you want17:43
hashashinkk23, clonezilla livecd can make the job i guest17:43
Pikkachusaryth: not if you give write access, and that's required since apps does not only read configs17:44
kk23i try with clonezilla but nothing17:44
kk23disk not boot17:44
thedudeabidesi'm running precise pangolin and the latest nvidia-current is crashing unity when running webgl on firefox17:44
sacarlsonPikkachu: chmod 777 /etc/skel ; I mean17:44
kk23now i try with norton ghost 4 linux17:44
sarythsacarlson: Does the num system work with chmod?17:44
memikemsacarlson, do not chmod 77717:45
kk23the problem is grub17:45
Pikkachusacarlson: hmm I can't recall if you need write access through the whole path to write to a file, do you need?17:45
kk23when clone didn't load17:45
Pikkachusacarlson: I'd chmod only specific files not the whole skel dir I think17:45
tomodoxfce sensors thing is not verygood17:45
tomodothe bars show up as red17:45
sacarlsonmemikem: I told them I wasn't security minded you could disable executable if you want or total bad idea like memikem said17:45
zykotick9thedudeabides: try reasking in #ubuntu+117:45

Cajun_Lan_ManHello all.  I'm having an issue with Ubuntu 11.10, which is happening on multiple computers.  At times the computer will lock up, but the mouse continues to move.  Mouse clicks do not register, nor to keyboard commands. The only thing I can seem to do is reboot.  This is happening on a 4 year old Dell, and a 2 year old HP. Any ideas?17:46
croffesaryth: yes, there are Windows drivers, also in the Broadcom site they do have a tgz with rpm files for Linux drivers.17:47
PikkachuCajun_Lan_Man: yes, reinstall from scratch17:47
sarythcroffe: I recommend downloading the windows drivers and using ndiswrapper17:47
Cajun_Lan_ManPikkachu: This is happening on a clean install, as of 2 days ago.17:47
kokozaursA bit non ubuntu related question, is there any way to download attachment from ipb forum without registration?17:47
PikkachuCajun_Lan_Man: I assume that years old includes dist-upgrades17:47
croffeIs ndiswrapper comparably fast/stable?17:48
PikkachuCajun_Lan_Man: ah ok sorry then17:48
mayurBlack screen is shown on startup.Can anyone help?17:48
=== michael is now known as Guest39336
sarythcroffe:When I used it, it worked fine17:48
Cajun_Lan_ManPikkachu: the age was referring to the hardware.  The installs are both clean.17:48
zykotick9!nomodeset | mayur17:48
ubottumayur: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter17:48
kokozaursOr in worst case17:48
kokozaursthere is an setting that admins need to17:48
kokozaursapprove people before they can download attachments, i need to download one from that specific forum17:48
mayuri tried that but the prblm persists17:48
kokozaursis there any way to find the path where the file is actually located? Invision power board17:49
sacarlsonPikkachu: I just verified you can read write files in /etc with a standard user if file is set to chmod 77717:49
trever420croffe: i'm not sure... but you might be able to use ndiswrapper on the Windows driver and see if it works17:49
Pikkachusaryth, sacarlson: thanks for the suggestions, I'll consider putting specfic settings onto /etc/skell then chmod g=rw them. However I have to greate a group, any name suggestions? Maybe 'sharedconf'? Maybe using an existing one, but which?17:50
mbeierlquestion: I have a PPTP connection from one ubuntu box to another.  If I attempt to ssh using the pptp peer address, the connection handshake occurs but after about 2 seconds of inactivity (according to ssh -vv), the connection is terminated without any error or log on the server.  I know the keys/etc are all good17:50
sarythPikkachu: Create a new group, if you wish. You can add users to multiple groups17:51
Pikkachusacarlson: you don't +x a file unless you want to execute that file17:51
croffehmm ndiswrapper says it's for wireless drivers, whereas mine is wired :) will keep on reading though to see if it can be used with wired.17:51
Pikkachusaryth: I know the basics :P17:51
sacarlsonPikkachu: yes I just tested with chmod 666 /etc/filename and that works too17:51
sarythcroffe: Ndiswrapper can work with Ethernet17:51
sarythPikkachu: Just making sure ;317:51
zykotick9sacarlson: as a general rule, setting something to 777 is the wrong thing to do17:51
Pikkachusaryth: I think I'll take a look into existing groups, preferably those in which all users are included by default17:52

sacarlsonzykotick9: didn't I change it to 666 the so the devil has a part of it now17:52

urfr332gOSo is vlc 2 in the Oneric repos now?17:52

zykotick9sacarlson: no.  i don't help people do things i don't agree with.17:54
aeon-ltdMaslo: passed17:54
urfr332gOOer, are you sure it has been in the 12.04 srepos ince the 18th?17:54
lucidguyDoes anyone know if there is a netdump package for Ubuntu.  My repos come back with nothing.17:54
sacarlsonzykotick9: when time is important at times people take risks that they shouldn't, I hope they find better solutions for the long run17:54
Oerurfr332gO, yes17:54
Pikkachuwould a dist-upgrade overwrite /etc/skell? also, how does config upgrade work? I've seen some diff dialogs in upgrades but I wonder how it works, is it package based? Is there any non-home config file which would not be added or managed (though scripts triggered on removal) by some package?17:55

bellmanif you run Debian, you can simply apt-get install vlc to install the VLC media player.17:57
sacarlsonPikkachu: it's a solution that already works but with bad security as pointed out by zykotick917:57
urfr332gO_Marcus, thanks I was not sure of the bots syntax.17:57
_MarcusHello. I made a link to a directory(I used some mount command, I don't remember what it was) and I need to delete it. When I try to delete it or the folder that it links to it just says "rm: cannot remove `foldername': Device or resource is busy"17:58
_MarcusHow do I remove it?17:58
Pikkachusacarlson: you would rather suggest 66217:58
virungaHi, i want to know and see the interface of my network card object using gdbus but i don't know the object path, can you help me please?17:58
urfr332gOmorph, cinnamon is not supported here. :)17:59
zykotick9_Marcus: check output of "mount" it needs to be unmounted first (be sure your pwd isn't in that mount)17:59
sacarlsonPikkachu: I guess 660 then only the group allowed has read write with no executable might be closer but I"m not security minded17:59
_Marcuszykotick9: http://paste.ubuntu.com/851644/ It did say it twice.18:00
trismvirunga: install d-feet, it will be much easier to browse dbus and find what you need18:01
zykotick9_Marcus: "type none" what filesystem is this?18:01
sacarlsonPikkachu: then maybe you have something set so that new added users also are in that group?18:01
_Marcuszykotick9: Idk, it just followed what some tutorial online told me to do. It doesn't say how to remove it.18:01
zykotick9_Marcus: ummm, perhaps it's due to use of bind?18:01

Pikkachusacarlson: that's achieved with 66x18:03
Pikkachusacarlson: as for the group I'll try to use one of those in which all users are included by default18:04
sacarlsonPikkachu: does chmod 66x /filename even work?  if it did sounds good18:04
Pikkachusacarlson: it's not very important the last bit, just though of o=r for convenience18:05
