kandinskinorthernen, it's a bit of a hassle and you have to use gdb, but you can do it00:03

markgiffordhi guys, playing with nfs and am having a problem getting the client to mount nfs mount properly. Server works OK when mounting from a client which has support for NFSv4 in the kernel. When mounting from a VPS with only nfs (no nfsv4) I get "mount.nfs: No such device" errors00:21

daniel___Can I get some help with nautilus-actions00:24
chipotlehow can i acess grub config so i can fix it with the liveCD?00:25
ZeepZopReplaced Windows 7 with Ubuntu on my main PC today, woot woot!00:25
daniel___Does anyone here know how to use nautilus actions? I have a question on it00:26
EvilResistancedaniel___, just ask your quesiton...00:26
mdpatrick_I need to set a static DNS to workaround a stupid modem issue I have where it gives up on fetching DNS results more often. How do I set a static DNS for my connection on an ubuntu machine?00:28
Jordan_Uchipotle: What problem are you having exactly?00:28
mark_umdpatrick_ /etc/hosts is common to many *nix platforms00:28
daniel___EvilResistance: I'm having trouble to get a script to run. I'm running a python script that fixes whatever simple scan doesn't correctly make when it makes pdfs. Anyways it runs fine with display output setting but it won't run in any other mod and I don't want windows to pop up on it.00:28
mdpatrick_mark_u: OK so given google's public DNS is  8.8.8.8, and 8.8.4.400:29
mdpatrick_mark_u: What would I place in /etc/hosts?????00:29
EvilResistancedaniel___, i'd direct your question to the hchannel rather than to just me, FYI.  But someone will probably answer (I'm on KDE, so I dont use nautilus)00:30
zykotick9mdpatrick_: forget about /etc/hosts (that for something else).  Do you use Network Manager?  there should be a way to enter DNS in there somehow (as N-M overrides /etc/resolv.conf which is actually used for DNS on non-N-M systems)00:31
wolfmitchellHow can I get the programs on Ubuntu Studio without getting them separately or getting another ISO? (Eg. metapackage)00:31
mdpatrick_zykotick9: I must not use network manager because I cant find it??? do I need to apt-get it???00:32
zykotick9mdpatrick_: are you using "ubuntu"?00:33
mdpatrick_zykotick9: yes, unity desktop00:33
zykotick9mdpatrick_: then you're using network manager00:33

kandinskiI want to remove the autologin from a flashmemory livedisk00:34
kandinskiso it prompts for login and I can choose my own user00:34

SachIs it t possibe to open a .pages file in ubuntu 11.04 ?00:34
daniel___Anyone? In nautilus actions I'm having trouble to get a script to run. I'm running a python script that fixes whatever simple scan doesn't correctly make when it makes pdfs. Anyways it runs fine with display output setting but it won't run in any other mod and I don't want windows to pop up on it.00:34
kandinskiSach, have you tried?00:35
zykotick9mdpatrick_: sorry, i'm not sure how it works in N-M?  Someone who uses it might have a better idea.00:35
Sachkandinski, yes00:35
chipotleJordan_U: ubuntu doesn't boot when i select ubuntu00:35
kandinskiSach, it's easier in general if you tell us what you have already tried00:36

zykotick9Where are the DNS settings in Network Manager?  for mdpatrick_00:36
Sachkandinski  ok.  i assumed that my request indicated that I've tried....  what I've tried is doubleclicking on the .pages file.00:37

jaequerycalamari: yes, so i can mount it00:46
scottjzykotick9: sorry wrong chan00:47
Jordan_Ujaequery: I recommend that you simply use GParted for partitioning and filesystem creation.00:47
calamarijaequery, you can run fdisk and choose option c to create a partition00:47
jaequeryi dont have GUI00:47
Jordan_Uchipotle: Does anything different happen if you select the recovery mode entry?00:47
calamarijaequery, (run it interactively I mean)00:48

amazingrandotrying..00:59
ActionParsnipjaequery: pass-num Controls the order in which fsck checks the device/partition for errors at boot time. The root device should be 1. Other partitions should be either 2 (to check after root) or 0 (to disable checking for that partition altogether).    source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fstab01:00

jaequerysomething weird happening, so /ssd is a 1gig partition that i just mounted,  im trying to copy a 380mb folder to /ssd,  and at 359M, it stops saying No space left on device. i do a df -h and says /ssd has 595M Available still.  what's going on?01:03

jaequeryso what do i do in this case?01:06
jaequeryor is this what we call false advertisement?01:07
jaequery:)01:07
jaequeryhow do i increase the indoes01:07
Jordan_Ujaequery: You can recreate the partition with more inodes. See the -i and -N parameters to mkfs.ext4.01:09
Jordan_Ujaequery: You could also convert the filesystem to btrfs, which has no such inode limits, but btrfs is still *experimental* so do *not* depend on it for data you care about, and there is also chances of btrfs crashing your machine.01:10
Chipzzzjaequery: you have plenty of room if you rsync it with --inplace01:10
jaequerychipzzzz: what does --inplace do?01:10
SachIs it t possibe to open a .pages file in ubuntu 11.04 ?  I've tried openoffice and libreoffice, but neither works.01:11
Chipzzzdoesn't make a phantom copy before making it visible01:11
ActionParsnipSach: what sort of file is it?01:12
Jordan_UChipzzz: I don't expect that would make much difference WRT inode counts (which is the limit that jaequery is running into).01:12
SachActionParsnip  it's a word-processed  .pages file from a mac.01:13

allainHello everyone. I've been bashing my head against a network card problem for 2 days without success and was wondering if someone could help me out. Card is atheros device with signature "168c:0032" when running lspci -nn01:25
allainNo matter what I do, I can't get the card to get recognized. Looks like it might be that I need to upgrade to a new kernel to get ath9k support for the card, but I've tried the debian version with that kernal and it just crashes hard when the screen is started. Radeon support is a joke I think01:26
Bsimsallain: yeah thats been the rule for years ATI drivers even on windows are crap01:27
allainI'd settle for 16bit leisure suit larry graphics right now.01:27

papachanis it possible  resizing the window partition space , need more space for ubuntu01:43
Bsimspapachan: yeah use gparted01:44
JoseeAntonioRpapachan: Yes, you can. You can use GParted to resize the Windows partition, so that the space you remove stays as unused space.01:44
papachanok, but without risk of removing windows?01:45
JoseeAntonioRpapachan: Once you have done that, and have unused space, resize the Ubuntu partition01:45
JoseeAntonioRpapachan: No, there is no risk, as you are not formatting the partition.01:45

funnyfingersZac_o_O if you can stop some services for the time, rsync would work.  Rsync might have trouble with databases open for instance.02:09
Zac_o_Oi was thinking rsync, but shoudl i just rsync the whole / directory?  excluding /sys, /dev, /mnt, /proc?02:09
Zac_o_Oah02:09
urfr332gOmister2, should be as far as I know.02:09

tensorpuddingkesi, you said that your problem is restoring windows's ntloader to the mbr, that has nothing to do with ubuntu02:29
urfr332gOkesi, you have to use a key propmt at powering on to get the boot from menu outside of the bios that info maybe in your manual which may be on the web or just info on the web.02:29
`Korvinkesi, grub doesn't start until after you choose the boot device02:29

sacarlsonetyrnal: export has all the details of the link fstab just mounts it at boot03:36
sacarlsonetyrnal: I have also run into problems with nfs at boot that seems it takes some time to setle so I've writen script that mount it later as a work around in rare cases03:37
etyrnalsacarlson, so i do not need to specify ro03:37

Long story short upgrading from 11.04 to 11.10 completely destroyed my installation - broke lots of packages, I get an immediate kernel panic on boot, etc. So I need to back up my data and reinstall. I've been following the guide here to mount the drive: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/rescue-an-encrypted-luks-lvm-volume.html but when I get to the04:24

ubottuTo just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.04:43

chipotleit is because my boot drive is in the 4th or 5th connector, and when i installed ubuntu, no other drives were attached, because it dual boots with win7 and i didn't want win7 formatting all drives05:40
urfr332gOchipolte, you still running a GUID?05:41

fairuz_Which one is better to create local mirror, using debmirror or apt-mirror?06:22
crazycheeseHi, Im searching linux specialist in rostov-on-don, russia. Anyone?06:22
Flannelfairuz_: What's your use-case?06:22
MayazcherquoiHey guys, is it possible to import wireless networks into Ubuntu from Win7? Regards :)06:22
fairuz_Flannel: We are a small of grup want to do an upgrade jam but the internet connection is not good.06:23
fairuz_So I think we could turn one machine to an mirror06:23
fairuz_Download all the upgrades in advance06:23
tweezeI was having some trouble installing ipac-ng, everytime i ran sudo apt-get install ipac-ng, I got the error of can't find that package.  What repository do i need to add to get this package?06:25
Flannelfairuz_: Well, apt-proxy means that you'll only have to download each package that you use once.  But it won't be downloaded until it's used.  debmirror will let you mirror everything.06:25
geirhafairuz_: you might want to look into apt-cacher06:25
Flannelfairuz_: Since the upgrades won't require a full mirror, I imagine apt-proxy will be best, and if you're worried about time during, do an upgrade prior, that'll pre-cache the files in the apt-mirror06:25
geirhaFlannel, fairuz_: Don't use apt-proxy, it's got bugs and is no longer maintained, so those bugs won't be fixed.06:26
Flannelfairuz_: Another way to do it is to download the alternate CD (which you can torrent, if that helps), and then upgrade from that.06:26
Satisfiedi just upgraded to to 11.10 ( i think ) ... this new interface is totally crazy?!  is this how its supposed to be ..... i just want to open a terminal but can't figure out how to do it.06:27

radencan ubuntu be installed on top of software raid at the bios level ?06:28
fairuz_Flannel: geirha: I'm still not getting it. apt-cacher will be used to get necessary packages for update. So can I use these packages for another machines to upgrade too? Or it need to be done for each machine06:29
Satisfiedi'm thinking this must be some sort of a joke... on me ? this interface is just bizarre06:30
Satisfiedis this really gnome?06:30
geirhafairuz_: you set up a box with apt-cacher, then you change your sources.list to point to that box instead of archive.ubuntu.com.06:30
Flannelfairuz_: Yeah, you point each machine to the cacher ('instead of' a repository), then whenever a machine asks for a package, the cacher checks to see if it has it, if it does, it hands it over, if it doesn't, it downloads it from the real repositories, and caches the package for when someone else asks for it.06:30
nubcakeSatisfied: how are we supposed to know what you're looking at?06:30
Satisfiednubcake, shrug, ... i just installed the latest ubuntu and the desktop is just goofy06:31
Satisfiedthere are big blockish and clumsy icons on the left side that make no sense06:31
fairuz_Flanner geirha: Understood. So I have to have one box/machine that is already upgraded so that the other machines can take the upgrade from it. Is that correct?06:32
tweezeI was having some trouble installing ipac-ng, everytime i ran sudo apt-get install ipac-ng, I got the error of can't find that package.  What repository do i need to add to get this package?06:32

Satisfiedunity--canoical   ?06:32
FlannelSatisfied: Unity is the UI.  Canonical is the company that made it.06:32
Satisfiedwoah..06:32
Flannelfairuz_: If you want to have everything cached beforehand, set up the cacher, point a machine at the cacher and upgrade with that machine ahead of time.  This will fill the cache with the packages for the upgrade.06:33

phoenix_firebrdYesterday i was browsing the web using the chrome browser. When i visited a website, an windows exectuble was executed in wine. My chrome doesnt have any extension installed and i think this arbitary code execution is because of a vulnerablity of the browser.06:39
phoenix_firebrdhow can i make my system more secure ? other than uninstalling the wine and chrome06:39
geirhaSatisfied: when? When you clicked the icon, nothing appeared? When you typed skype, no results were shown?06:39
phoenix_firebrdI have deleted the wine directory and checked for any unwanted programs running in the background, nothing like that.06:39

MayazcherquoiHey guys, is it possible to import wireless networks into Ubuntu from Win7? Regards :)06:42
geirhaSatisfied: That's how unity works. For applications you haven't pinned on the dock on the left, you open the Dash and search for the app.06:42
Satisfiedgeirha, that is a very curious comment06:43
tweezeany help on installing ipac-ng?  i tried to apt-get install it, and i can't locate the package?  what repository should i add for this?06:43
geirhaSatisfied: How so?06:43
Satisfiedwhy should I have to search for such simple things?06:43
humungulousMayazcherquoi: no, you have to configure the client settings anew, but it should be trivial, there is no meaningful benefit in the "import" youre envisioning06:43
Mayazcherquoihumungulous: Damn :-/06:44
geirhaSatisfied: *shrug* someone though that was a good idea?06:44
humungulousMayazcherquoi: all you need to know is the SSID and passphrase. you would engineer an entire automated export/import pipeline just for that?06:44
geirhaSatisfied: Anyway, you only need to search it up once, then pin it to the dock.06:44
zykotick9!notunity | Satisfied06:45
ubottuSatisfied: 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 !classic06:45
Satisfiedhow do i pin someting ?06:45
geirhaSatisfied: Once you've started an application, an icon for it will appear in the dock. Right-click it and select "pin"06:46
zykotick9Satisfied: if you are looking for a more Gnome 2-like environement, check out xfce06:46
Satisfiedzykotick9, i was using gnome yesterday and now I have this weird and confusing interface.... this is not gnome06:46

T_H_Xhex20dec: i'll do it if you want to give me ssh / root access06:48
tweezeany help finding a repository for ipac-ng?  i was having some trouble installing it06:49

Satisfiedzykotick9, what happened to the regular gnome then?06:49
hex20decT_H_X, really??06:49
humungulousome: they intend for you to open a web browser to file:///usr/share/doc/06:50
T_H_Xhex20dec: sure, i have nothing better to do06:50
zykotick9Satisfied: gnome2 is deprecated, and gnome3 is almost as bad as unity.  Linus T. switched to xfce for a sanner environment06:50

omehumungulous: but they are mostly .gz and it's not convinent to download the files from your own computer, unziping then using an editor !06:51

humungulousome: nobody actually uses it :)06:51
Satisfiedits so strange06:51
omehumungulous: there is pretty good stuff. I wonder why there isn't a tool to use them.06:51
humungulousome: a browser would gunzip them in passing, is the idea06:51
omewhere does info fetchs the information, IRRC, it doesn't has a DB like man.06:51

MayazcherquoiI'm getting several conficts from a package (libgnome-keyring0), which is making me unable to install gnome-shell :-/06:53
MayazcherquoiHow can I overcome this?06:54
geirhaSatisfied: Well, you got two choices really. Install a different desktop environment, such as xfce or lxde, which are very similar to the "gnome" you're used to, or learn how to use unity.06:54
humungulousah, of course06:54
humungulousome: /usr/share/info/06:54
omehumungulous: nice.06:55
humungulousome: you could do gunzip -c <file> | less06:55

tweezeam i actually posting? lol06:55
EpicGeekZxubuntu06:55
humungulousome: but theres really no reason to use those06:55
MayazcherquoiWhy the hell does uninstalling a package warrant a necessity to install ~120 new packages?06:56
EpicGeekZor you can install xfce4 through apt-get06:56
humungulousome: when you have google and the entire internets06:56
geirhazykotick9: less runs it through lesspipe, which figures out it is a gz file and passes it through gzip06:56
omehumungulous: fair, but there is lots of good stuff in docs that _normally_ you find crap solutions in web.06:56
zykotick9geirha: not here?  odd, gives me a message like "this is binary, still want to show it?" and i get binary output06:56
humunguloustweeze: no one must know06:57

jaequeryisnt hdparm just for max throughput?06:57
jaequeryi need random iops numbers (4k)06:58
humungulousjaequery: it can do a few different tests06:58
omehumungulous: as an example, the answer for gnome3 power button in web (as in google first pages) is 'use a plugin!' but doc says press alt. :D06:58
geirhaSatisfied: Yes, xubuntu is ubuntu preinstalled with xfce instead of gnome, but you can just install xfce in your current ubuntu install.06:58
fairuz_Flannel: geirha: One more question :) The packages cached on the cacher will be independant from the packages used by the cacher machine itself right?06:59
jaequeryhumungulous: how can i use hdparm to give me the 4k random iops numbers? all i know now is just hdparm -tT <device>06:59
zykotick9geirha: if i call lesspipe it does work, neat, thanks.  easier then the zcat method i used to use.06:59

zykotick9fairuz_: yes, each system (including the host, even if it's pointed to the apt-cacher) downloads the packages to the local cache07:00

vkgdreHi, I wonder why grub sometimes need interaction when booting. Usually it just starts the default/only kernel entry, but after changes to the kernel it appears to need me to press enter once. This is not very convenient, as I use the computer without keyboard (or monitor)08:17

masterlord65who can help my with specific problem in partitioning disks ? after restart system dont see new partitions08:24
urfr332gO!nounity | Mayazcherquoi08:25
ubottuMayazcherquoi: 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 !classic08:25
sacarlsonvkgdre: I noticed that and seems on the next boot it again has a timeout of 10 secounds, not sure what makes the timeout condition change08:25
vkgdreMayazcherquoi: Usually the computer just boots without any interaction needed, but sometimes it just stops in the GRUB menu, without any working timeout. Pressing enter once makes it boot as expected (without keypresses) for the next times, until the kernel is changed again (I believe)08:25
Mayazcherquoiurfr332gO: I know how to install it...08:25
CFHowletturgodfather   *patiently awaiting a status report*08:25
MayazcherquoiI was wondering if an aptitude purge on suitable .*unity.* packages would be advisable?08:26
urgodfathertried to activate the driver... got an error then no proprietary drivers are in use on this syster08:26
vkgdresacarlson: yes strange, I believe it might have something to do with remembering the default enttry or something like that08:26
urfr332gOMayazcherquoi, youi can remove unity but it is not advised really, it is rather small.08:26
MayazcherquoiOkay.08:26
CFHowletturgodfather   reboot08:26
Mayazcherquoivkgdre: gksu gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg08:26
CFHowlettMayazcherquoi   feel free to install another DE - just leave unity in place.08:26
Mayazcherquoivkgdre: And check GRUB_TIMEOUT :)08:26
sacarlsonvkgdre: I was manipulating things in grub or I had installed some new package that must have trigered it, but only one time08:27
MayazcherquoiCFHowlett: But why though, if I'm not going to use it at all? :s08:27
urgodfatherbut i CAN see networks so im gonna try to login to mine08:27
sacarlsonopps no more power I got to go.  laters all08:27
CFHowlettMayazcherquoi   it's tiny and IMHO not worth the risk of breaking something via removal.  YMMV08:27
zykotick9Mayazcherquoi: if you remove Unity i imagine it would remove the ubuntu-desktop metapackage, which can cause issues for upgrading to new release08:28
MayazcherquoiCFHowlett && zykotick9: Ohk. Thank you :)08:28
CFHowletturgodfather   do step 5 commands.08:28

theadminprashs: Yes, it does look like it's corrupted then :(09:46
theadminalmoxarife: We're not currently in a wubi setup, so that node has nothing to do with wubi09:46

zykotick9boba88: most rights are determined through group memberships, in a terminal type "groups" and you'll get a list of the groups your user is in.  admin, and plugdev are important (as are several more)10:50
boba88zykotick9: adm dialout cdrom plugdev lpadmin admin sambashare10:51
zykotick9boba88: that appears ok to me (but i can't confirm).  What are you having issues doing exactly?10:51
MonkeyDustboba88  basically, you need sudo for anything outside /home10:52
zykotick9is boba88 missing a sound/audio group above?  or anything else?10:52
tm_ok found it - just for the record and if anyone tries to solve this in april, it is not configured in rsyslog* but in apparmor.d10:52

ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)10:55

theadminboba88: Why do you need to run Eclipse as root at all?10:57
boba88ActionParsnip: but overall i am not sure if my user rights are ok10:57
theadmincancer: Virtualbox is much more of a natural environment. Wubi installs break too often10:57
ActionParsnipcancer: I'd go with virtualbox, I'm not a fan of wubi10:57
boba88theadmin: because my projected had to be checked with sudo svn co and then i do not have access to it as a normal user so neither eclipse run without sudo10:58
futiliusI have a computer that won't start any live CD distro, but I remember I turned off some kernel features on the command line and it worked. anyone have an idea what those could be?10:58

cancerActionParsnip: i'm actually confused about virtual box. in wubi it installed my last ubuntu in seperate partition. that's the point virtualbox brings confusion.11:01
theadminActionParsnip: The "power" group is used by many Linux distros to allow normal users to poweroff the system (used in Gentoo at least), but I don't think Ubuntu uses that.11:01
theadmincancer: Virtualbox creates a virtual hard drive in a file, just like Wubi, but it does it properly11:02
ActionParsnipcancer: wubi installs ubuntu to a disk file which is then loop mounted at boot. Virtualbox install to a similar file but is accessed inside windows so yourun both OSes at the same time11:02
cancerActionParsnip: and what to do with md5?11:02
boba88theadmin: why do i need "boba88:boba88" and not only "boba88" for the user11:02
ActionParsnipcancer: you should test the ISO you have to see if it is complete and consistant. MD5 testing does that11:02
theadminboba88: user:group11:03
ActionParsnipboba88: so that it gives the group ownership to your user too11:03
NyLesplease help me..11:03
boba88ActionParsnip: theadmin thanks11:03
bazhangNyLes, help with what11:04
cancerActionParsnip: ISO just downloaded. how to md5 test.11:04
bazhangNyLes, what video card do you have11:04
NyLesbazhang: I've tried glxgears and the highest FPS is only 53.. what am i missing?11:04

ubottucancer: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows11:04

bazhangNyLes, that is a very old card?11:05
theadminbazhang: Seems like so :D11:05
NyLesbazhang: yeah I think?11:05
bazhangNyLes, so probably not going to get very high score on glxgears11:05
NyLesbazhang: I'm reading this thread; http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=11365 he reached 500FPS :(11:07
boba88ActionParsnip: that worked out.. i have access now... but then i have the following problem: when i do svn up and then i get Password for '(null)' GNOME keyring:11:07
boba88ActionParsnip: i type my user passwd and it does not work11:07
NyLesbazhang: or the version of Ubuntu matters?11:07
boba88ActionParsnip: authorization failed: Could not authenticate to server: rejected Basic challenge (http://xp-dev.com)11:08
ActionParsnipboba88: the gnome keyring password can be different to your logon password11:08
ActionParsnipboba88: svn is not something11:08
boba88ActionParsnip: what is the gnome keyring passwd used for?11:08
wookienz_how do i kick an old nick that is still logged on?11:09
ActionParsnipboba88: storing password for ftp servers and suchlike11:09
NyLesbazhang: when i tried this; glxinfo | grep 's3tc\|direct'.. it says direct rendering: No..11:09
boba88ActionParsnip: it is not my personal computer.... someone else set a user for me i use it11:09
boba88ActionParsnip: or does it have to do with the wallet11:10
theadminwookienz_: ghost11:10
MonkeyDustmental note to self: "help yourself and you will be helped"11:10
ActionParsnipboba88: you can still store accounts as yourown user11:10
boba88ActionParsnip: that stores the master passed11:10
bazhangNyLes, I seriously doubt you can get high scores with such a old card. hardware limitations. you could ask in #compiz , I suppose11:10
boba88ActionParsnip: but then what is the gnome passwd when i have not set it11:11

MonkeyDustsharpK  then  you have to forward X somewhere in the putty preferences11:18

sharpKtheadmin that did it indeed, thanks....11:18
theadminsharpK: np11:18
wookienzit hink sharpK is running it connected to a t as opposed to running it though th ssh connection11:19
ActionParsniprabbi1: it's changed name to ttf-aenigma which is in the repos, which is why ubottu responded when I asked her to...11:19
cncerMonkeyDust: ActionParsnip: VirtualBox 4.1.8 for Windows hosts <--- Finally i'm downloading this.11:19
ActionParsnipcncer: its a good way to try the OS, although all the hardware is virtualized it will still run11:19
sharpKso whenever I launch a graphical application from SSH I need to include the display selector?11:19
theadminsharpK: Pretty much so, or just do "export DISPLAY=:0" first and then run commands as normally11:19
theadminsharpK: -as11:19
ActionParsnipsharpK: if you want it to run on the server's display, yes.Otherwise it will display on the system you launch it via X forwarding11:20
sharpKActionParsnip ahhh, that makes sense...11:20
wookienzX forwarding, cool!11:20
sharpKtheadmin thanks for the knowledge, will try to add that to my repertoire...11:20
ActionParsnipwookienz: dead handy, especially media players.So the sound comes out of the remote system but shows on the client :)11:21
wookienzwho can tackle my NFS prob. what mapping do i need so i dont have UID GID permissions problems.11:21
cncerActionParsnip: i have a single drive & have made 3 partitions of it. my Active drive (C:) have only 1-2 G.B left. so i want to ask from where Virtual Box will use space?11:21
wookienzActionParsnip, cool trick.11:21
ActionParsnipcncer: virtualbox won't use a partition. It installs to a file11:21
MonkeyDusta .vdi file11:22
ActionParsnipcncer: by default it will install to somewhere inside %profile%11:22
cncerActionParsnip: where will it install file?11:22
theadmincncer: You will be able to choose11:22
ActionParsnipcncer: wherever you downloaded it to11:22
theadminMonkeyDust: Not necessarily, VirtualBox supports many virtual HD formats (VDI, VHD, Parallels' HDD and some other one)11:23
theadminAh, VMDK11:23
MonkeyDusttheadmin  i know that, but tnx :)11:23
dr_willisno one ever reads the vbox manual.  :)11:23
MonkeyDustthe vbow whàt? ;)11:23
theadminMonkeyDust: It also supports real hard drives/partitions11:23
kbringardeverything I'm reading tells me if my partman recipe in preseed is set to atomic it should put everything on one partition… did this change recently, or am I just being dumb?11:24
cncertheadmin: ActionParsnip: I'm confused again. installing virtual box is not my issue. i am asking about kubuntu space....? sorry if it my fault that i'm not understanding. (not good in english)11:24
jsoftHow are usb devices mounted? What process does this? Obviously must be some kind of priviledged process?11:24
theadmincncer: Basically. VirtualBox uses a file on your hard drive, anywhere you want, to "store" the "hard drive" of the guest (your Ubuntu install)11:24
ActionParsnipcncer: like I said, it will install to a file in your users my docs some place11:24
nixmaniackMy WiFi doesn't autoconnect after reboot or waking up from sleep. here's the syslog http://paste.ubuntu.com/860366/11:25
auronandacecncer: you can configure where virtualbox stores the virtual harddrive images11:25
theadminjsoft: Automount is handled by gvfs, which does it via dbus11:25
ActionParsnipcncer: it installs to a file which is treated as a 'disk'11:25
cncerActionParsnip: theadmin: can one of you please give exact link to virtual box.11:25

nstridesouti cant log onto my ubuntu 11.10 after upgrade12:20
ActionParsnipdedicated1: if you want to reset your password when you forget it, you can boot to root recover mode and run:  passwd name    and reset the password12:20
BattlestarBi will write my problem12:20
ActionParsnipdedicated1: there isn't one, that's why. Your first user can use sudo as it is in the 'admin' group. There is no root password and the account is disabled12:21

dedicated1ActionParsnip and THX: last question, I removed admin on my main account, made a seperate admin account like in Windows. This seems to be useless and does not give me more protection over the default setup right? if that is right, then if I make my main account admin again does that add me to the sudoers file automaticly?12:35
ActionParsnipguest4875: asI said earlier with imagemagick in CTRL+ALT+F112:35
ActionParsnipdedicated1: is the new accouont in the admin group?12:35
ActionParsnipdedicated1: you don't need to mess with the sudoers file12:35
theadmindedicated1: The default sudoers file simply grants sudo priveleges to all members of the admin group.12:35

theadmin!text | r4412:48
ubottur44: 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%20Mode12:48
ActionParsniptheadmin: it lets you select a region, you can tell it to use root and such and it will do the whole screen afaik12:48
r44thanks I am going to try this12:48
theadminActionParsnip: No no, I mean, shouldn't it be something like "DISPLAY=:0 import ~/foo.png"?12:49

Stevan94NoTok..my problem is I dont know how to install Ati drivers for graphic card14:07
crizzyok, which ati card you have?14:08
Stevan94NoT5450HD download latest driver available14:08
crizzyare you on 11.10 / unity14:08
Stevan94NoT11.1014:08
ActionParsnipnovid: yes, but what does the update dialogue say?14:08
crizzyok, hit super/win button, type 'additional' there, you should find 'additional drivers' app14:08
crizzyopen that. click on the proprietary driver (NOT the post-release ones, the regular one)14:09
crizzyit'll install the driver14:09
crizzyafter that, reboot14:09
Stevan94NoTShould I choose post release update or normal?14:10
crizzynormal14:10
Stevan94NoTok thanks for your help14:10
Trevor69420eh.. someone somewhere said something to me again but i was away and i cant scroll that far up14:10
crizzypost-release has never worked for me.. not for anyone else with ati that i know, either14:10
crizzy:)14:10
ActionParsnipnovid: technically you could boot to the precise install CD and upgrade from there14:10

crizzyStevan94NoT: you might wanna read this after installing proprietary driver: http://askubuntu.com/questions/38028/performance-being-really-choppy-with-ati-drivers14:11
crizzyStevan94NoT: it's not mandatory, but unity window dragging and small stuff like that is a bit choppy without it14:11
ActionParsnipnovid: i suggest you disable all 3rd party sources, it will help you get a smooth upgrade'14:12

HiuhuHey guyz am using ubuntu 10.10 and my software center is not downloading the cache14:33
nibblerTrevor69420, i don't think so. if its a (real) hw controller, it'll have its own bios showing during boot up. the ones in (standard) BIOS are all fake-raid imho14:33

Schleshey there, i´ve got a problem to control my fans on ubuntu. I´m using fancontrol but i´m get an error when trying to adjust the settings. sensors found eine fan  with a speed about 2200 RPM. Pwnconfig returns an source error (cant compare a empty string). The empty string is because pwnconfig doesnt found any fans. during the init process, pwmconfig test which fan the programm can manage and correctly let the fan spin slower. But that is15:01
Schles*eine = one, sry15:01

playmanI just tried running it with "filename.sh" :S15:06
compdoccancer, if you understand how to configure VB to use the path, it shouldnt be a problem15:06
llutz_playman: that only works if the file is executable AND in a dir inside your $PATH15:06
auronandacecancer: yes, if you change the path you could use a different partition with more space15:06

llutz_hrm wrong factoid15:43
mi3xsl, please ask this question in xfce channel15:44
bellmanyou can simply edit the source code of VLC and make it output the current track to dbus, and simply edit conky to read the track from dbus15:44
_Marcusmi3: I logged out, and there is nothing at the bottom.15:44
mi3_Marcus, there will be a session selection at the bottom which release do you use?15:44
_Marcusmi3: 11.1015:45
CoolCoderI have installed openoffice. But how i will open it. when i type cmd soffice its opening libreoffice. how to i get openoffice15:45
mi3bellman, how can I do that? can you suggest? also, I am a complete newbie, and I dont know how to compile from source so pls guide me15:45
mi3_Marcus, there ought to be some kind of a session selector option in the login screen, thats what I know.15:46
xslmi3 i have been asking that question for 3 days, with no success15:46
_Marcusmi3: There is "Guest Session" but that's just a guest account15:47
xsland its important, because if i change monitor or screen resolution and if the bar is on the bottom ...i cant see it15:47

CoolCoderI have installed openoffice. But how i will open it. when i type cmd soffice its opening libreoffice. how to i get openoffice15:49
llutz_mi3: tar.gz?15:49
mi3llutz is it tar.gz file on that link or just a paste?15:50
xslmy problem is related to a xfce design problem that positions the panel using x and y coordinates. and i need to be "bottom" "top"15:50

auronandace!gnome2 | _Marcus15:53
ubottu_Marcus: The GNOME Foundation has ceased support for GNOME 2, and as such it is not in Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot). See !notunity for an alternative desktop experience.15:53
_Marcus!notunity15:53
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 !classic15:53

Biebianhas anyone figured out how to remove the root user yet?  I want to rename root to something more apealing like John or Betty15:57

BattlestarBis there a lens for ubuntu 11.10 for index everything?15:59
bellmansudo su, usermod -l Justin root, passwd Justin to set a password and allow root logins15:59
xslmi3 no its with the xfce panels15:59
OerBiebian what root-user ? root-account is disabled in Ubuntu.15:59

_MarcusBiebian: Some applications use the username "root" as a reference, while some use the uid. I wouldn't recommend it, and you should ask someone else about what I am going to say, but just change "root" to something else in /etc/passwd16:00

Biebian_Marcus thank you that is helpfull I will test this out shortly16:01

TostadaHi.. How do I search for text within files, system wide.? Thank you : )16:01
_MarcusBiebian: take a backup of your machine first16:01

Mech0zKM0201 ``16:35
Mech0z`what?16:35
SomelauwWait, why was I looking at df -h? free -m says only 574 is cached. df -h is my hard disk so that doesn't matter.16:35
KM0201Mech0z: i mean, rather than trying to use zfs in Linux, i'll just wait for btrfs for Linux to be perfected (that was actually for sipior16:35
_MarcusSomelauw: how much RAM is in your machine16:36
Somelauwdf -h doesn't display ram, but diskspace16:36
Somelauw_Marcus: 1 gig.16:36

ubottuBtrfs is a new filesystem available for Ubuntu. It is currently marked as experimental, and should not be used for important data. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/btrfs16:36
Mech0zTrevor69420 one sec16:36
KM0201Mech0z: think of it as a the linux version of ZFS16:36

Mech0zKM0201 year thats what I said, but they didnt get that I didnt have backup of my data, but then I need twice as many disks aka $$$16:40
KM0201Mech0z: right16:40
raidmasterSomelauw they do that at times. You can use the SMART in your drive to see if it is OK.16:40
chris_99i've just tried to upgrade ubuntu to the latest, and now i'm getting 'dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of dpkg-dev:'16:40
Somelauwraidmaster: Why do you think my drive is dying?16:40
KM0201Mech0z: but.. i have 2, 2tb drives on my server, and they are in Raid 1.. money for drives is not the issue for me, redundancy is16:40
chris_99whenever i try and complete the upgrade16:40
Mech0zKM0201 have thoguht about doing raid1 though, but thats still pretty expensive16:40
raidmasterSomelauw weird sounds and slow you said16:41
Mech0zKM0201 well I just bought 2 3tb as they had a cheap offer (very cheap in these times) and my 5 1 tb in raidz (raid5) are full16:41
Mech0zbut want to transfer the data from those drives to linux16:41
KM0201good lord16:41
KM02015, 1tb?16:41

Trevor69420i have 16 x 1TB drives16:42
Trevor69420in RAID 10 though16:42
SomelauwJust noisy actually. Speed is not a problem.16:42
Mech0zso you get 8 disks space?16:42
raidmasterSomelauw what DE are you using. Xfce, Gnome, Unity?16:43
SomelauwMaybe it is an improvement against the heat.16:43
=== neersighted is now known as neersighted|AFK
Trevor694208 disks space?16:43
Trevor69420you mean 8 TB of disk space16:43
Trevor69420yes16:43
Mech0zisnt raid10 8 disks with 8 disks redudency?16:44
Trevor69420RAID 10 can be however many disks u use16:44
raidmasterSomelauw install the Gnome tool Disk Utility and then go into SMART data. Will tell you if your disk is happy16:44
Somelauwraidmaster: okay16:44
Trevor69420if you have 20 disks in RAID 10 the stripes is across 10 of them16:44
Trevor69420in RAID 10 you need an even number of disks16:44
Mech0zyes16:44
Mech0zwhat I meant16:44
Trevor69420your space is half the total number cuz it's striped and mirrored16:44
Mech0zsame as raid1 just with the speed of raid016:44
Trevor69420well no16:45
Trevor69420RAID 1 is fault tolerent16:45
Trevor69420RAID 0 is not16:45
BattlestarBi installed chromium through application center but it is v 17, why is that?16:45
Trevor69420RAID 5 is just eh in my opinion16:45
Mech0zyou get the speed from raid0 and the redundency from raid116:45
Mech0z?16:45
Trevor69420when something goes wrong with RAID 5 it can be a pain to fix16:45
raidmasterTrevor69420 10 really means RAID 1 and RAID 0.16:45
Mech0zdont raid5 fix itself?16:45
Mech0zif you just replace the drive16:45
Trevor69420i get the striping of RAID 0 and the redundancy of RAID 116:46
Trevor69420yes I know raidmaster16:46
BattlestarBi installed chromium through application center but it is v 17, why is that?16:46

DanteHey everyone I'm facing one of the weird and difficult to solve problems on my short ubuntu life, its about my internet connection on ubuntu 10.4, a wired connection, that works perfectly with the same hardware in windows, but in ubuntu its messy.

rokniri had my desktop icons hidden with /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop=false before upgrading to 11.10.  after upgrading, i want to see my desktop icons again, but /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop=true doesn't work.  how can i re-enable my desktop icons and the right click menu?16:46
Trevor69420well yes Mech0z RAID 5 is self fixing but it's not as flexible as RAID 1 and it sufferes for major performance issues when degraded16:47
Trevor69420it's also not cost effective when dealing with write intensive applications16:47
SubjectOneah crap, can you repeat your last sentence to me plz16:47
_MarcusBattlestarB: Try getting it from the Chromium website16:47
Trevor69420i also think RAID 5 is slower than RAID 10 at least in reading16:47
=== neersighted|AFK is now known as neersighted
Trevor69420but the write speed varies based on controller16:48
Trevor69420all RAID has it's downsides16:49
compdocTrevor69420, raid 5 can be very fast - all depends on the controller16:49
Trevor69420but i think RAID 10 has the least downsides16:49

Danteraidmaster: yes it gives me the ip of my router17:02
Danteraidmaster: I actually tried to set up OpenDNS, instead of my router IP in there, because I found it weird, but it didn't solve the problem17:03
Danteraidmaster: I did it with gnome-netowrk-admin17:03
mmcjihow do i find the package version a .deb is built from.  i.e. not the ubuntu package version name, but the original source package revision?17:03
raidmasterDante one thing you can do is try plugging your computer right into your wall and see if it works. Could be your router has issues with ipv617:03
raidmasterDante if your computer does work when by passing the router disable ipv6 (I do this any way for speed and privacy)17:04

Danteraidmaster: I would disable IPv6 anyway, I have went to edit connection in gnome-network-admin, and then edited the eth0 connection, in the IPv6 option I have set Ignore17:06
Halexander9000Help please?17:06
Danteraidmaster: thanks in advance by your help, other guys just tryed to help me and they couldn't...17:07
raidmasterDante a good way to disable IPv6 is /etc/sysctl.conf17:07
raidmasterthen add this17:07

ZalSteveBell, make sure cups is running, then visit http://localhost:631 in your favorite web browser.18:06
eQuiNoX__is there anyway i can configure totem media player so that i can have multiple instances of the same to run?18:07
SteveBellzal how can I see if cups is running?18:07
ZalSteveBell, sorry, I'm not familiar enough yet with ubuntu's service scripts to answer that one well.18:07
starnZal: any ideas??18:07
SteveBellok, well it's a hint for me to start with.18:08
SteveBellthx18:08
Zalstarn, eh, stop using pulseaudio? That's the only thing I would think to try.18:08
starnwell i believe my audio player uses alsa.. and even if i tell teamspeak to use alsa it doesn't have effect.18:08
Zalstarn, I mean, I *hear* how cool it is, but it seems to cause a lot of problems. Maybe they've fixed all that recently, I dunno18:09

zykotick9cordyceps: "sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata" might work18:12
chipotlehow do i compile a tar.gz package; i can't get it through my package manager?18:12
ZalKrissed, I suppose automount will use your /etc/fstab parameters. You can configure it there to mount rw, with appropriate uid, gid, and umask options. See "man mount" and "man fstab" for details. Ubuntu may have some graphical interface to ease this process, I don't know.18:12
zykotick9!checkinstall | chipotle18:12
ubottuchipotle: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled.

pengw hi all18:12
pengwi have  a question18:12
Companionpengw, shoot it18:13
zykotick9chipotle: if you use checkinstall above instead of the regular method you'll be able to uninstall it through regular means (this is a BIG advantage)18:13
Companionpengw, and you already asked18:13
pengwi try to do md5sum and then use diff to cmp it but i dont know how18:13
LjLchipotle: a .tar.gz is just a compressed archive. you use tar like you've been told, then you read the instructions inside it (usually a README or INSTALL file). are you sure the software you want isn't available as an Ubuntu package, though?18:13
pengwcan i use diff to cmp a txt with the the txt in a file? i mean is that diff only able to cmp file with file?18:14
cordycepszykotick9: nope, same old same old18:14
zykotick9cordyceps: well either your timezone is not set, your your clock is set to use UTC instead of local time.  Sorry, not sure how ubuntu deals with that.  Good luck.18:15
starni know under connector i see analog output and analog headphones.18:15
LjLpengw: diff compares files, but you can do "diff <(echo text) file", that's a standard bash thing (if i've got the syntax right)18:15
fairuz_Does apt-cacher has a build-in monitor to see how much space the cache has taken or what are the packages that are cached?18:16

Halexander9000Greeting gentlehumans! I'm desperately trying to make sense of things here. I have this .ogv file that uploads and plays without a problem in youtube. Because it's recorded with RecordMyDesktop, with absolutely no editing done. Now, I want to edit said file.

Krissedzaitzev i recommend you start by installing synaptic and get gnome-fallback and switch to that18:38
zykotick9JohnNapster: assuming update-manager is the package name "sudo apt-get source update-manager" might work18:39

zykotick9Cognitive: when you don't have xorg.conf in place, try "lspci -vnvn" find the VGA section, and the kernel driver in use line, i imagine it's gonna say nouveau instead of nvidia19:19

zykotick9cemycc: remove the wireless from /etc/network/interfaces19:20
rusty149bzimmerly: Nach0z: Thanks anyway19:20
Cognitivezykotick9: output is : "Kernel driver in use: nvidia" followed by "Kernel modules: nvidia_current, nouveau, nvidiafb"19:21
bzimmerlyrusty149: You're welcome. Good luck man.19:21
Cognitivezykotick9: do you think I should just rename the driver to nouveau in xorg.conf?19:21
zykotick9Cognitive: well, that's the nvidia driver then!  so i was wrong.  not sure how that's possible without xorg.conf19:21
uykusuzhello, can i ask for help about "restarting compiz" here?19:21
zykotick9Cognitive: NO, you probably want nvidia over nouveau19:21

ActionParsnipShambat: no need, you will be at the local system19:38
ActionParsnipzykotick9: not sure, bit weird. This is precise prerelease and I've not added my user to any groups19:39
zykotick9ActionParsnip: debian has always used sudo, so perhaps ubuntu is changing to using that?19:39
ShambatActionParsnip: yeah I'm only wondering cause getting a monitor to the box will be a pain19:39
ActionParsnipShambat: you could boot to root recovery with network and SSH, but you'll need local access to get to that point19:40
