gordon1234t432, are you using the B43 driver?00:01
krambiorixDr_willis_, better rc.local than fstab?00:01
t432gordon1234: im not sure...it came with ubuntu installation - worked automatically so I didnt need to play about with it.00:02
gordon1234t432, if you click on the network connection and lock at connection information, it should tell you the driver00:02
t432Thats the beauty of Ubuntu 11.10 :)00:03
Dr_willis_krambiorix,  fstab is designed for such tasks..00:03
vidphileHey all, I have two systems here. Both systems are running 11.10. One plays mts files in totem and in vlc the other only plays the audio while showing the pink screen. Anyone know whats installed on the first system that's allowing this to happen?00:03
nyleshow can i blacklist a driver? by adding blacklist (driver) in the blacklist.conf right?00:03
Dr_willis_!blacklist00:03
ubottuTo blacklist a module, edit /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist.conf and add « blacklist <modulename> » to the end of that list - To explicitly load modules in a specific order, list them in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and type « sudo update-initramfs -u »00:03
nylesDr_willis_, thanks.. but how come it doesn't change anything? can you tell me what are the drivers for video card? im using nvidia graphics card..00:04
mbot_y00:05
krambiorixDr_willis_, ok thx!00:05
Dr_willis_nyles,  no idea really - If its a 3 yr old laptop with a dual video setup. it must be some thing rather unique for the time.00:06
=== max is now known as Guest73637
Dr_willis_nyles,  you may want to check the forums and askubuntu.com for that exact laptop make/model.00:06
nylesDr_willis_, would you believe that this PC is more than 10 years old?00:06
t432 gordon1234: lsusb out says [Broadcom 4320]00:06
t432im assuming that is the driver00:07
Dr_willis_nyles,  time to save up your lunch money then. :)00:07
Mathias56Anyone might know why blender keep crashing on my ubuntu server but not on windows? It only happens on scenes with heavy particle effects.00:07
t432gordon1234: network connections gives me no driver info... whats the terminal command?00:07
* Dr_willis_ waits for the Cherry Pi - Uber-mini-pc thing to start shipping. :)00:07
Mathias56Blender chat seems kind of dead00:07
nylesDr_willis_, is there no other way than that? lol hahaha.. i want to use this even if this is too old..00:08
ActionParsnipDr_willis_: I'm up for a cotton candy :)00:08
Dr_willis_nyles,  no idea.  with a 10 yr old laptop. you are lucky it even boots really...00:08
gordon1234t432, ah. Its not active, so no driver is loaded yet.00:09
EvilResistancenyles, if the system is more than ten years old its graphics card is probably not supporting dual monitors.  Either that, or there's no drivers that would do that because the card is likely far past its production end dates.00:09
savidHow do I make it so that I can access the grub menu during startup?  I need to revert to the previous kernel.00:09
Mathias56have you guys ever seen what happens to old computers? They ship them to africa where they throw them in a big fire to melt the metals out :P00:09
nylesDr_willis_, i can't seem to find the my_blacklist.conf that the both is pertaining to, am i the one to generate it?00:10
zykotick9savid: HOLD shift after BIOS00:10
nylesEvilResistance, im not trying to use dual monitors.. ^^00:10
savidZykotic, tried that,  doesn't seem to work.00:10
* EvilResistance misread then00:10
gordon1234t432, have to dash, but there are a few hits on google about 4320s and getting them to work. Good luck00:10
nylesEvilResistance, im just trying to solve the black screen..00:10
t432gordon1234: but im connected?00:10
EvilResistancenyles, it may still be the card.00:10

t432ok00:11
const_antinePidgin source has configure script that uses pkg-config to find if libglib is adequately recent. However, the install package for glib doesn't provide pkg-config with information about itself. What do?00:11
savidzykotick9, isn't there some way to make it so that grub always shows the menu with a delay?00:11
Dr_willis_nyles,  its saying to make one of some name you want.00:11
pomkeHello, I'm on natty on my laptop, the update manager cannot seem to find oneiric at all, its tracking normal releases, I've tried 3-4 different mirrors including the main server..00:11
gordon1234t432, right click on the wireless icon and select connection information00:11
nylesEvilResistance, i see, even if this works with windows xp, and puppy linux?00:12
Dr_willis_ edit /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist.conf  <------------------------ Pick a descriptive name00:12
nylesDr_willis_, ohhh and it will be loaded automatically?00:12
Dr_willis_nyles,  thats how it works - I rarely have to mess with blackliusting00:12
EvilResistancenyles, it could indeed still be the card, but i'll let Dr_willis_ help you out here, i've got a phone call coming in00:12
t432gordon1234: Driver: rndis_wlan00:12

gordon1234t432, yep. you need to have the b43 driver .... sorry, really need to go now.00:14
Dr_willis_nyles,  im not even sure what you are doing, or why you need to be doing all this.00:14
t432gordon1234: Before you go ..do i install it with ndiswrapper?00:14
nylesDr_willis_, ahh ok thanks..00:14
zykotick9savid: sorry I was AFK, ya check in /etc/default/grub for the setting (don't forget "sudo update-grub" after making any changes)00:18

invisibleki'm looking for some sort of application for putting music on to my mp3 player. i know i can just drag and drop but i'd prefer something that would convert if need be and also to change the bitrate as it copies in order to maximize space00:22
Dr_willis_Fudge,  depends on yoru video chipset. and unity in 11.10 and befor have 'issues' wth dual monitors - other desktops/wms may work better for you00:22

Dr_willis_BrendanMcc,  you mean in Vmware - can you change the virtual nic chipset?00:27
BrendanMccDr_willis_: YES!!00:27
BrendanMccActionParsnip: I already asked in Vmware00:28

ubottuvesa is the default video driver if X can't find a better one. Also see !x00:28
pomkesharpK: its tail -F /var/log/auth.log00:28
Dr_willis_I know that virtualbox has like 3 differnt 'nic chipsets' you can select. and then like 3 differnt types of networking for the virtual machine to use.00:28

rattatoueBrendanMcc, yes you can. I have done bridged and that before with vmware.00:32
dejahthorisnyles: you could try looking in /var/log/xorg.0.log00:33
BrendanMccrattatoue: is there a link explaining the procedure or would you mind helping me get it done?00:33
rattatouenyles, or you could try lspci -v and then find your video card maybe00:34
ActionParsnipnyles: sudo lshw -C display | grep driver00:34
rattatoueBrendanMcc, it should just be under the settings for that VM. I think its settings then like on the right it says Network or hardware.00:34
nylesdejahthoris, rattatoue ActionParsnip thanks so much..00:35
sharpKhow would I check in there's some kind of firewall install on 11.10?00:35

MagicJchid:  why there of all places00:37
rattatouenyles, if you remove the driver that your card is using, then most likely you will get a failed driver problem when you try restarting and X wont load00:38
nylesrattatoue, thanks..00:38

some_new_dudnyles: what are you asking LOL00:40
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 parameter00:40
ActionParsnipnyles: depends on which windows driver00:40
dejahthorisnyles: want kind of video card do you have?00:41
nylesActionParsnip, wow? so its possible? its video card driver..00:41

ActionParsniprattatoue: there are some viruses for Linux, they are just in Labs01:13
urfr332gOrattatoue, just assumptions that show the lack of knowledge of open source which runs about half of the servers on the web, and Gogles search engines and many other areas.01:13
Lintthese servers could run System V to the same effect01:14
rattatoueI am not assuming anything, I know there are linux viruses. Its simple math. The more people that use a OS and the more popular it is, the more people will write viruses for it. Ergo like Windows is most popular it has more viruses. Just as Linux is hackable so is WIndows Mac etc01:14
mehworkcan't seem to connect to wifi, syslog is saying: wlan0 DHCP transaction took too long, stopping.  Anyone know why?01:15
urfr332gOrattatoue, there are none on the web and your simple math.01:15
ActionParsniprattatoue: its nothing do with popularity01:15
Linturfr332gO, kernel.org01:15
urfr332gOrattatoue, a root kit is not a virus by the way.01:15
rattatoueYes it does, why make a virus to infect us linux users. When make one for Windows and you infect a lot more people01:15
ActionParsniprattatoue: https://www.linux.com/news/software/applications/8261-note-to-new-linux-users-no-antivirus-needed01:15
rattatoueOkay this talk is pointless, you all are not understanding what I am saying. So its pointless to have this convo lol01:16
rattatouemehwork, are you trying to use dhcpcd to get the wireless working?01:16
mehworkrattatoue: i have no idea01:17
mehworki'm just using wifi like i always do in ubuntu as far as i know01:17
rattatouemehwork, how are you trying to get your wireless working?01:17
urfr332gOLint, right but as far as I have read that breach was not released to the public and the mother kernels so to speak were securely store to be clean.01:17
mehworki right click on the network icon in the panel and go into 'edit connections' (lucid lynx)01:17
mehworkrattatoue: ^01:17
urfr332gOLint, I'm not arguing that open source is not hackable but use some critical thinking and empirical data in your argument.01:18
rattatouemehwork, are you sure your selecting your wireless network instead of another one?01:18
rhobdayi think i messed up01:19
rhobdayit said there is no such thing as output.txt01:19
NyLesrattatoue: can you analyze the xorg.conf i got from puppy linux?01:20
mehworkrattatoue: very sure01:20
rattatoueNyLes, sure, can you paste it on pastebin01:20
mehworkrattatoue: i even have another ubuntu computer connected to it and i'm seeing the connection settings are equal01:20
NyLesrattatoue: http://paste.ubuntu.com/850965/01:21
mehworkrattatoue: only difference is the computer that's wifi isnt working is a desktop that has a wireless card/antennae but it worked a few months ago the last time i used it01:21
rhobdayAction01:21
rattatoueNyLes, it is using the nv driver01:22
NyLesrattatoue: i just want to ask under section monitor, it is different with the one generated by nvidia-xconfig?01:23
ActionParsniprhobday: ?01:23
rhobdayis there an easier way to talk to you01:23
rattatoueNyLes, it may be, idk how the nvidia-xconfig generates that part exactly vs the way puppylinux finds it01:23
NyLesrattatoue: the option with nvidia's xorg is DPMS01:23
ActionParsniprhobday: you can run gedit and just run:  lspci;lsusb    then copy the text manually if you want01:23

rattatouemehwork, it sounds like a driver issue. ActionParsnip might be able to help you with wireless driver problem.01:25
NyLesrattatoue: i mean the option under section monitor with the xorg.conf generated by nvidia is DPMS.. while in puppy it's Preffered?01:25

erpoIs there a way to install ubuntu on a PC with no graphics card? It does have an ethernet port and a CD drive.01:27
rattatoueNyLes, that might be your problem on Ubuntu. As someone mentioned before you could be going outside of your resolution. Where on puppy linux it sets your resolution to 1024x60001:27
robbie72hi everybody, should the linux-headers packages take an unusually long time to install ?01:27
erpoI don't mean "no monitor attached." I mean "no onboard video or video card installed."01:27

gener1cif i have an rpm 64bit driver01:35
gener1ccan i 100% make a deb out of it with alien?01:35
robbie72urfr332gO: normal ubuntu installation from cd, dedicated hardware etc, no wubi, i had to google to know what it was.01:35
urfr332gOtim, chroot with a ubuntu cd past 9.10 the install, a cd=to the ubuntu release your running would be ideal.01:35
urfr332gOrobbie72, where on that big of a HD?01:36
acidrainive had this issue before. but i forgot how i fixed it01:36
almoxarifegener1c: yes you should be able to, the docs are a bit confusing for those who dont understand both rpm and deb though01:36
rhobdayWhat will knowing which wifi card i have do anyways01:36
tlmurfr332gO: i actually only have one flash drive which has gentoo on it01:36
gener1cok thanks almoxarife01:37
rattatoueacidrain, you could try sudo ifconfig eth0 down and then sudo ifconfig eth0 up in terminal. Sometimes that will reload the connection and pull an IP01:37
acidrainive made it as far as ifconfig eth0 saying that i am connected.01:37
acidrainrattatoue: let me try this01:37

ubotturattatoue: 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.01:37
urfr332gOtim, that wont fix it download a ubuntu cd=to the install best tool you can have for that release. Also is this a standard dual boot or a wubi install?01:37
acidrainrattatoue: still not connecting01:38
almoxarifegener1c: 'checkinstall' is also an option if you have the 'source'01:38
acidrainlast time, i did some type of manual routing, which i have tried this time to the best of my knowledge01:38
rattatoueacidrain, when you type ifconfig does it show an IP?01:38
tlmurfr332gO: any way i can do it manually?  i don't have a cd drive and i don't think i can put something else on the flash drive when that's my only bootable system01:39
robbie72urfr332gO: the partition the root is on is near the start of the hard drive01:39
robbie72on the fast bit01:39
acidrainrattatoue: it will not show unless i manually set the DCHP reservation on the router for 192.168.1.107 and then set that ip as my box, but it still wont go online01:39

acidrainrattatoue: it now shows inet addr: 192.168.1.107, but its not online, cannot connect to google.com01:43
rhobdaysorry i timed out, but does that help?01:43
urfr332gOtim, to be honest a install of any distro without access to its live cd or discs is a mistake.01:43
rattatoueacidrain, okay try this in terminal. Ping 74.125.225.111. And see what it says.01:43
rhobdayActionParsnip are you there?01:44
spartan2276pnorman, I'm trying to create a file in the hal directory but I guess this is old and does not apply to 11.10, so I'm trying to find out where I need to create this file sudo vi /etc/hal/fdi/policy/99-x11-wizardpen.fdi01:44

rattatoueacidrain, okay01:45
rattatoueacidrain, when you type ifconfig you have a inet addr: right?01:45
pnormanspartan2276: oh, the file doesn't exist? look somewhere under /usr/share/hal/fdi I think01:45
acidrainrattatoue: just to be clear, the gateway is my routers ip right?01:45

ActionParsnipamt897: could use dd or rsync02:58
amt897however, I've tried partitioning in both gparted and windows disk manager to shrink my ntfs partition on the ssd (I have 42 gb free), and each time it doesn't let me shrink by any more than 2 gb.02:58
scienteswell 1. you have to do this from a liveCD amt89702:58
amt897doing it from a usb stick ubuntu pendrive02:59
scientesthen 2. resize windows partition, resize down linux partition, copy linux partition, resize linux partition to max size02:59
scientesalso you should probably have a swap partition on the SSD02:59
amt897actionparsnip: what are those?02:59
scientesthen thats the end of gparted02:59
amt897yeah, i have a 200 mb swap partition, sorry.02:59
XuMuKscientes: swap on ssd? too expensive I guess...03:00
amt897right-- i try to use gparted.  it only gives me 2 gb or so to shrink the partition by03:00
very_sadhrm tintoy, hold on03:00
bludBen64: that made my tv flicker like crazy and be completely messed up :o03:00
scientesthen you 3. mount the new linux root- mount /dev/sdgajgsea /mnt; cd /mnt; mount -t proc proc proc; mount --bind /dev dev; mount -t sysfs sysfs sys; chroot . /bin/su03:00
XuMuKonly / and /boot should be placed on ssd, the rest is fine where it is03:01
tintoyvery_sad: ok I'll wait for your answer.03:01
amt897it works perfectly fine as-is.  there's just something very elegant about having both of my OSes on the same drive03:01
very_sadtintoy: boot ubuntu then remove /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules03:01

amt897recent enough I'd think03:12
urfr332gOblumonkey, unetbootin I think is in the repos.03:12
scientesblumonkey, you should always use the most recent version03:12
scientesblumonkey, but yeah that is a way to do an upgrade03:13
urfr332gOblumonkey, sudo apt-get install unetbootin in a terminal.03:13
blumonkeyyes but the software package i dont think contains the latest version03:13
blumonkeybecause linuxcoin is not in the drop down of unetbootin03:13
XuMuKblumonkey: You can't... or install what it offers from repos or get it from svn/bzr or compile it youself03:13
urfr332gOblumonkey, down load it from them directly if that is true.03:13

urfr332gOblumonkey, it is not in my version in oneiric, you can download their iso though and use unetbootin to load a usb.03:15
savidFffffuuuuuuu03:15
scientessavid, what are your symptoms03:15
scientessavid, its probably grub that you need to reinstall03:15
rumpe1amt897, SSDs automatically use fragmentation a lot, but that's not an issue. They don't have to swing around mechanical elements.03:16
XuMuKOffGridOps: yes, if you have /home in separate partition03:16
scientesamt897, defraging a SSD is idiotic, as they use a FTL inside them03:16
scientesso they are already fragmented03:16
savidscientes,  I updated my kbd drivers using a dkms deb pkg and kbd no longer works03:16
scienteskbd, as in Keyboard?03:17
OffGridOpsXuMuK, i'm not sure if i do.  i installed 11.10 and just started using it---nothing special on the orig install03:17
amt897scientes:  okay, cool.  the other advice they give is...  close all programs in memory (shouldn't be an issue in pendrive ubuntu), run windows disk cleanup, and "Disable pagefile, kernel memory dump, system restore and hibernation"03:17
savidscientes, I need to restore the initrd that was installed by the original lived03:17
scienteswell hibernate and swap files is still an issue amt89703:17
XuMuKsavid: type this ls /boot/ -lat and look if there are more than one images left03:17
urfr332gOscientes, gparted will not move the unmovable paging files in a windows setup correctly, generally causes breakage.03:17
scientesbut that really shouldn't mattter when you have 120 GB amgarching03:17
scientes*amt03:17
rumpe1amt897, it's much more important to not use their full capacity. Otherwise it will reduce it's lifetime. Read some tutorials about SSDs.03:17

urfr332gOamt897, W7 has a virtual partitioner use it.03:19
rumpe1amt897, can you describe your partition layout a bit more detailed?03:19
scientessavid, remove the modules you added--you can't just restore an old initrd as there is a differn't one for each minor kernel version03:19

amt897okay, so my ssd is a 120 GiB Intel drive.  200 MB partition for system, the C: partition is 111.59 GB; 42ish gb free.03:20
amt897I would like to shrink that free space by 20 GB or so and install Ubuntu there.03:20
scientesgeeze, though why does windows need so much damn expensive space03:20
rumpe1amt897, you want to shrink free space? .. .That doesn't make any sense.03:21
helpmeASAPHow much memory do I need to make a virtual machine with a lubuntu host?03:21
XuMuKscientes: he could point grub to older ones03:21
blumonkeyi downloaded unetbootin-linux-565 from sourceforge but it says i need to open with an application, send to: where would i send this03:21
urfr332gOamt897, use the W7 Disk manager I believe it is called, run from admin.03:21
scientesXuMuK, does dkms only rebuild current versions?03:21
ActionParsniphelpmeASAP: what OS is the guest?03:21
rumpe1amt897, ah, i get it. You want to shrink C: (?)03:21
scientesblumonkey, sudo apt-get install unetbootin03:21
OffGridOpsXuMuK, found the info thanx03:21
ActionParsniphelpmeASAP: or do you mean how much ram should you assign to the guest?03:21
amt897yessir, rumpel03:21
scientesblumonkey, also, unetbootin on linux isn't the best supported software, what are you trying to do?03:22
helpmeASAPActionParnip: any guest capable of using OpenVPN I hope. and safe. must be Linux03:22
XuMuKscientes: I think it creates new image and initrd03:22
amt897urfr332g0: i'll open it up now03:22
scientesXuMuK, uhhhhh, it obviously doesn't create a new image, as that would be a kernel compile--doesn't dound like you...03:22
savidscientes,  I see.  I'll try that.  Thanks.03:22
helpmeASAPActionParsnip: No, I mean how many RAM should my computer have to have a virtual machine run smoothly. Host lubuntu03:22
scientesthe question is whether is only changes the current initrd, or old ones03:22
scientesas well03:22
urfr332gOamt897, that is the best way to go, your set up may not mess with the paging files but using the onboard is safer.03:23
urfr332gOsetup=what you want to do.03:23
rumpe1amt897, you should be able to shrink the windows-partition if windows isn't still in some kind of hibernation mode. You can't use windows because it can't shrink a partition it is running from.03:23
amt897urfr332g0: the windows disk manager only lets me shrink my C: partition by 539 mb now (varies depending upon what's chilling in memory)03:24
urfr332gOrumpe1, not true windows 7 can resize a running setup.03:24
blumonkeyscientes_ when im not using my computer i wanted to boot from usb into linuxcoin to mine bitcoins for fun03:24
thevaliantxwhat can i do to make my wireless internet to work again?  i looked at "Additional Drivers" and it says that the Broadcom STA driver is activated but not currently in use.03:24
ActionParsniphelpmeASAP: so the host is lubuntu and the guest is lubuntu? Is that correct?03:24
rumpe1urfr332gO, virtual partitions? ... Doesn't like a good idea to me. (imho)03:24
amt897rumpe1: I also tried by rebooting from windows and booting into a live CD without mounting any other partitions.  gparted had a similar problem to disk manager now.03:24
helpmeASAPActionParsnip: Yes I suppose03:25
urfr332gOamt897, probaly due to where stuff is on the ssd especially the paging file, if you brute force it with gparted you will likely break it, do a backup image first.03:25
ActionParsniphelpmeASAP: lubuntu's minimal ram is 256Mb, so 512Mb as a BARE minimum. I'd go for at least 1Gb to be safe03:25
urfr332gOrumpe1, Because you are not familiar with it.03:25
urfr332gOprobably*03:25
ActionParsniphelpmeASAP: personally I try and max out the RAM in a PC. RAM is stupidly cheap03:26

helpmeASAPActionParsnip: OK thanks!03:27
savidscientes,  OK I removed hid-apple and bcm5973,  now my kb and my mouse won't work.03:27
urfr332gOrumpe1, your more likely to break a windows setup if you move the unmovable paging and other stuff, that is why it is advised to do a defragg of evrything to the front and not move the partition with data in that area.03:27
XuMuKnimbiotics: recordmydesktop-gtk && cheese03:27

nicknefariousWhy does it do it?03:30
scientessavid, just boot from an earlier kernel03:30
helpmeASAPAnyone know if best virtual machine? VMWare or VirtualBox or is there better??????03:30
psusiadhikari, open synaptic, find package, click install?03:31
ActionParsniphelpmeASAP: there is no best, or better03:31
savidscientes, I wish it were that easy.   The dkms pkg over wrote the kernel.   It makes03:31
XuMuKhelpmeASAP: yes, kvm, but it's not so easu to setup03:31
ActionParsniphelpmeASAP: if one was outright best, the other would not get used03:31
psusihelpmeASAP, I just use qemu-kvm and lately have been experimenting with xen03:31
urfr332gOhelpmeASAP, if you google the screen lock there is lots of info. :)03:32
scientessavid, it overwrote the initrd, you could chroot into the target system, and then remove the dkms package, which will remove the modules and rebuild the initrd03:32
helpmeASAPhow to install kvm?!! that the Linux version right?03:32
adhikaripsusi but there is no package containing phigs03:32
scientesyou can't manually change modules cause it doesn't rebuild the initrd, which is where the problem is happening03:32

adhikarii am talking about this library03:32
scienteshelpmeASAP, use virt-manager03:32
sacarlsonnicknefarious: it's google redirection, they sense your location and provide an address depending on where they see you are located03:32
savidscientes,  you mean remove dkms via apt-get?03:32
ActionParsniptruexfan81: there may be a ppa03:32
scientessavid, while in a chroot of the target system03:32
scientes!chroot03:32
ubottuA chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot03:32
nicknefariouspsusi Can you explain why it does it?03:32
urfr332gOhelpmeASAP, your just asking random questions look at the channel and freenode policy they ask you to do some of this yourself via the web. :)03:33
truexfan81i've been googling for one, so far i haven't found it, thats why i'm on here asking03:33
psusiadhikari, then you'll have to google for a ppa or get the source and build it yourself03:33
psusinicknefarious, because google has many servers03:33
savidscientes, remove and reinstall, or just remove?03:34
nicknefariouspsusi sure so this isn't an example of DNS poisoning (I am in China)03:34
sacarlsonnicknefarious: you can use dig google.com to get more details on there dns configs03:34
psusinicknefarious, they use dns CNAME records for www to alias it to many different servers03:34
scientessavid, unless you need dkms for something, like propritary drivers, just remove03:34
savidOk03:34
scientesits mainly nvidia, fglrx, and broadcom wireless AFAIK03:34
halt_cdpr cdpr cdpr cdpr cdpr comeon someone...03:35

Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic03:46

LordDragonActionParsnip: nothing comes up at all04:18

rohit_Hi, I have a question - I have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS installed, but I am a Comp. Sci. major and I happen to install Labview and it is not supportable with WINE, so I need to install Windows 7. Is their any way I can transfer all my data (mainly pictures,music,videos, etc...) from Ubuntu to Windows? I really need this done very urgently05:22
cfhowlettrohit dropbox05:23
ndkellyrohit_, Yes. Do you have access to an external drive?05:23
ActionParsniprohit_: use your backups05:23
rohit_alright05:23
rohit_is their any method w/o using a external?05:24
scutrohit_, www.fs-driver.org05:24
rohit_because i will daul boot05:24
rohit_so is it possible if i can easily just copy and paste it over to my windows 705:24
ndkellyDropbox is always an easy option05:24
ndkellyOr Box05:24
acidrainActionParsnip: damn it, now i cant boot from my other hdd. and its not listed in the boot options. it wont load my options of which device to boot from05:25
scutrohit_, or use ntfs-3g to mount ntfs partition under linux05:25
rohit_with fs-driver i can easily read linux formats and just drag and drop all the info over?05:25
ActionParsnipacidrain: lose the option then ust use the blacklist :)05:25
ActionParsniprohit_: not Ext405:26
scutrohit_, yes, dunno with the performance and not ext505:26
acidrainActionParsnip: what do you mean? i cant even access my other hdd now...05:26
rohit_I se05:26
scutext4*05:26
ActionParsniprohit_: Ubuntu can read and write NTFS though05:26
rohit_Oh alright05:26
rohit_i'll try to find an external hard drive from a friend05:26
rohit_another quesiton05:26
rohit_will Linux ever have a port for Labview or Autodesk?05:26
ActionParsnipacidrain: change it in root recovery mode (hold shift at boot), or you can do it in liveCD05:27
ActionParsniprohit_: you'd have to ask the developers05:27
acidrainok i got it. seems times have changed since i last touched a comp. lol05:27
Jordan_Urohit_: The developers of Labview and Autodesk that is.05:27

MisakaImotuoHi. I can't seem to get things like gedit, empathy, evince, etc. to have my GTK themes applied on Ubuntu05:30

=== macmartine_ is now known as macmartine
acidrainActionParsnip: so what do you suggest now?05:31
ActionParsnipincognegro: you will need to add the playdeb repo (using the deb from the site). You will also need to dextract the ROMs from YOUR playstation to use it05:31
MisakaImotuoI have no idea why the themes stop applying to certain applications only when I'm running outside a DE05:31
incognegroOhhhh boy05:31
ActionParsnipacidrain: not sure, i'd have a search for guides and such based on the chip name05:31
incognegroThat's something05:31
acidrainActionParsnip: do you suggest i take this computer back? and buy another one?05:33
MisakaImotuoAlso I'm launching both openbox and lxde via GDM, so that rules that out05:33
ActionParsnipacidrain: for an ethernet controller, hardly05:33
acidrainwell it kinda seems like the thing to do... i mean this box is useless to me if it wont go online05:34
ActionParsnipacidrain: you can get a PCI ethernet adapter for the price of a pack of smokes...05:34
acidraina pci ethernet adapater you say...05:34
acidraini think i have 1 of those laying around. it should work?05:34
MisakaImotuoI should also note that applications like thunar, chromium (for it's GTK bits), lxappearance, etc. all work fine with my GTK theme05:34
ActionParsnipacidrain: depends on the chip, worth a try05:34
acidrainlooks like this mobo doesnt have a pci slow05:35

MisakaImotuoI'm also using the Lubuntu-Default theme, so it can't be GTK3 issues05:35

wikyhow to install gnome3 in ubuntu11.1006:03
ActionParsnipwiky: its already installed06:04
bazhangwiky, gnome-shell ?06:04
XuMuKwiky: sudo apt-get install gnome-shell06:04
pangolin!notunity | wiky06:04
ubottuwiky: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic06:04
ActionParsnipwiky: if you are using Unity, it is a shell for Gnome 306:04

hex20decHey everyone, I'm trying to search through all the files in my server for a certain string and I tackle this error message every time I do it. Some results show, and then the error comes and it stops searching. This is the error: "grep: dev/log: No such device or address" and every time it's in a different location.06:26
ActionParsnipmehdi: does it happen as a new user?06:26
mehdiActionParsnip, wat do u mean ? i install it recently and done all th updates and install nvidia too06:27
acidrainActionParsnip: i followed the instructions at that link, but it didnt seem to fix anything at all. now the ethernet is not showing up at all. what to do about this?06:28
Jordan_Uhex20dec: You need to somehow exclude /dev/ from your search.06:28
ActionParsnipmehdi: make a new user, log in as the new user, run firefox06:28
ActionParsnipacidrain: try a different guide then..06:28
hex20decJordan_U: And how do I do that?06:29
Jordan_Uhex20dec: find's '-xdev' option might be useful (xdev does not stand for exclude /dev/ btw, it's just a coincidence).06:29

hex20decJordan_U: Haha, alright thanks.06:30

ActionParsniphex20dec: add an extra pipe:   | grep -v whatever06:31
hex20decActionParsnip: What is -v?06:31
ActionParsniphex20dec: in(v)ert is how I remember it, makes the grep output things which DON'T match the string06:32
hex20decActionParsnip: This is what I typed, "grep -lir  "www-data" *" from the root dir. Now do I add another grep like you said?06:35

hex20decIt06:38

KindariI have a monitor connected to a server, I want to be able to control whats on it via ssh. I was thinking best solution would probably be using screen or tmux.

Ben64Kindari: control what exactly08:19
KindariI want the monitor to mirror the ssh session.08:19
Ben64oh, well then screen would work for that08:19

somsipKindari: I run tmux on servers i maintain. Just setup an alias to "autossh -t tmux a" once tmux is running and that's about it08:20
hayloKindari it needs X-forwarding set and your monitor need an ip i think08:20

mehdidoes anybody know how can i run *.pbk in linux?08:20

GhrimSo I'm using xubuntu with firefox nightly. I can deal with how windows scrolls (instantly, but not smooth), and I like how mac scrolls (smoothly, but with no delay), but I just can't handle how xubuntu scrolls (smoothly, but still to the same fixed distances of windows, and it does this by just slowly moving to whatever you would have scrolled to on windows). Is there any way I can make it scroll how macs do, or failing that, how window08:47

vega-my oneiric install suddenly wants to remove a bunch of :i386 packages, is this ok? it is a 64bit install. Just wondering why this happens now suddenly..09:37
vega-(ie. suggests apt-get autoremove)09:37
ServerSagevega-: Perhaps packages that have been moved to 64bit?  What are the packages?09:38
geirhaRawProduce: The setgid bit on a directory only affects the ownership of files created within, not the permission bits.09:38
llutz_RawProduce: use ACLs or try to change umask. default umask = 002209:38
geirhaRawProduce: You'll either have to enable acl and set some default acls on the dir, or just make sure your umask is set to 000209:38
RawProducewhat's acls?09:39
llutz_!acl09:39
llutz_RawProduce: man setfacl, man getfacl09:39
RawProduceah, access control list09:39
vega-ServerSage: http://pastebin.com/9FFsVAsN09:39
RawProducethanks, I'll take a look at that09:39
geirhaRawProduce: access control lists. Gives you more fine grained control of file permissions.09:39
NyLesi received a prompt that ubuntu will run in low graphics mode?09:40

ServerSagevega-: I don't know why some of those would even be installed as 64 bit versions have been around for a while.09:40
fireball001I wanna know how to change the login window in ubuntu natty, I already know how to change the background, I want to  change the login window completely, any guesses?09:41
bmonkjvega-, I can only imagine that you have had some 32bit version of a program installed that had these as dependencies09:41
vega-bmonkj: could be yes, i'd guess it's safe to run autoremove..09:41
bmonkjvega-, I would assume so09:42

Right-clicking the "Desktop" there doesn't bring up any menu. Maybe this has to do with some X-server stuff, of which I know very little. Any advice on how I can get a normal-looking Desktop ?09:51

ubottuUbuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic10:11

llutz!mint | RedViper14:36
ubottuRedViper: Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu. Please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org14:36
dr_willisinzen:  depends on the services and job the server is doing14:36
linociscoinzen: no. I am to read from ubuntu documentation14:36
RedViperllutz: Why?14:37
llutzRedViper: why what?14:37
bazhangRedViper, this is not a mint support channel14:37
inzenis setting up a server complex? dr_willis linocisco? or is it just as simple as 1 2 3?14:37
llutzRedViper: no mint-support here14:37
dr_willismint has its own support channels14:37
llutzRedViper: mint is mint, not ubuntu (even if its based on it)14:37
dr_willisinzen:  totally depends on what you want the server to 'serve'14:37
dr_willisinzen:  install the desktop edition, install needed services.. is all i do14:38
MonkeyDustinzen  there's the command tasksel (task select), but then: 'simple' depends on how skilled you are14:39

linelevelHi, is there any danger in keeping my Thinpad cpu fan speed manually set to "disengaged", so it spins much faster than the highest numerical setting (which is 7 @ around 4500 RPM.. "disengaged" is @ over 6500 RPM). It's noisier for sure, but is there any danger in keeping it there permanently? My thinkpad never overheated until a few weeks ago, but now it's overheating constantly unless I set fan speed to "disengaged".15:01

luciferhi i'm having trouble with hybernating my ubuntu when i close the LID of my notebook It Wont Come back So I Have To Restart Completely15:07
musztimy question is if I register a domain with outside nameserver like freedns.afraid. org, and my ip is dynamic, will it register for me?15:08
llutzroasted: yes15:08

roastedlucifer: I've personally found "hibernate" to suck, on my windows and linux systems, even on my mac I have issues with hibernate. Suspend tho I've grown to prefer on any platform.15:08

roastedlucifer: I'm not sure. Personally, I come here for quick questions. I find the UbuntuForums to have more luck with issues like that because since it sits there all day many more people can read your question.15:10

Guest76002rattatoue: install flashaid, i think?16:32
martianheat1: well, that's strange. For some reason you don't have network manager installed. I'm still on 11.04 so maybe they took it out in 11.10 in some stroke of genius16:33
heat1martian: from the terminal it says "command not found", then I hitted alt-f2, wrote nm-applet and hitted <Enter> it doesn't do anything16:33
rattatoueGuest76002, your welcome to try that if you want, but honestly never used the program so I wouldnt know on that.16:33

Morpheusxnli am running unity 2d why is it that the buttons for close minimize and maximize are not visible on full screen in 3D they are16:41

beanbilal03, instead of typing <bean>, my name is bean, not <bean>.16:43

rcmaehlxsl: true. Just don't let anyone go into the settings and just right click and accept connection from source and you should be fine16:45

trever420xs1: is UFW a GUI frontend for IPTables?16:45
trever420and does it run from a web interface?16:45

xsltrever420: command line16:45
martianheat1: did you install network manager?16:46
rabbi1martian: what does it do ?16:46
kpas_rattatoue, oh yeah all that crap plus reinstall nv drivers - nothing worked until I used my old xorg16:46
martianrabbi1: attempts to fix the archive16:46
rattatouekpas_, sounds like you need that fresh install16:46
heat1I can't because I don't have network on ubuntu 11.1016:46
rcmaehl:| People at my school keep thinking I'm on command prompt :| This ISN'T a winblows pc16:46
rabbi1martian: nope, it just zipped the .zip file16:46
kpas_rattatoue, yes16:46

kpas_rattatoue, is cinn more similar to gnome 2 or 3 and can I install via app-get16:49

shade7p:)16:51
rabbi1martian: from the -FF command i am able to see the data inside .zip file. but not extract16:51
rcmaehlI got to go.16:51
rattatouekpas_, yes, you can have it look exactly like gnome2, well I mean theres a few lil differents or I just have mine setup kinda like a start bar in windows was. Its a lot more polished then mate desktop is and looks a lot better.16:51
Lunar_LanderI use Thunderbird to read the emails in my uni account and there I got an E-Mail newsletter from an Electronic Shop, but the shop was hacked by someone last year, i.e. that guy replaced the shop with a black site, which said that he took the site down. Now I don't know if the E-Mails coming from the shop are OK. I didn't open the e-mail but of course thunderbird had downloaded it from uni to my harddrive16:52
Lunar_LanderI now deleted it16:52
kpas_rattatoue, is it tar ball install or a apt-get install16:52
martianrabbi1: that probably means the header of the archive is intact, so zip is still able to see what is supposed to be in it, but the data is probably all garbled16:52
Lunar_Landerpotential danger?16:52
rattatouekpas_, apt-get install once you add the ppa16:52
rattatoueLunar_Lamp, if you were running on Linux when you downloaded the email due to Linux's file permissions you should be okay.16:53
ubusrvI'm having trouble running proftpd on an ubuntu server... every time someone tries to connect (outside the LAN) and set passive mode it times out the connection; I've tried ANYTHING I found in manuals, but nothing happens... passive ports are set, ports are open through iptables, router ports open; nf_conntrack, nf_conntrack, nf_nat_ftp modules loaded, and still nothing16:53
kpas_rattatoue, so when I try I can select what desktop to use when logging in right e.g. gnome, unity, or Cin16:53
ubusrvany ideas, please?16:53
scwizardwhen using sudo my PATH is /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin16:53
scwizardand I can't figure out how to change this16:53
rattatouekpas_, right. I just pick Cinnamon. You can look on youtube its actually from linux-mint but works great in ubuntu too.16:54
scwizardthis is strange because there is no such /usr/X11R6 folder on my computer16:54
martianLunar_Lander: very unlikely. Not only is thunderbird 'smart' enough to not run things the way some other M$ email clients may have, but being linux, there are not many email virus type things out there to worry about. I wouldn't load the remote images in thunderbird (as it may ask you to do) as it will tell an attacker that someone at your IP is viewing the email, but aside from that don't stress it.16:54

martianrabbi1: rad!16:55
Lunar_Landeroh martian what I also have is plain text view and don't have images showing up in the e-mail16:56
kpas_rattatoue, Oer , Yes I get it.  No one OS can support every DE out their16:56
Lunar_LanderI think that is what you meant?16:56
kpas_rattatoue, Oer, but it does not hurt to try different things now and then16:56
Lunar_Landerthat if an image is attached that it is just an attachment and isn't displayed at once16:56

kpas_rattatoue, Oer, plus this might give me ceedence to get the wife to spring for a more powerfull PC since my is about 6 + years old16:57

zykotick9!checkinstall | goathouse77417:33
ubottugoathouse774: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!17:33
