trismNFisher: sometimes you need to alt+super+right click (if you are using compiz)01:39
NFishertrism, doesnt either01:40
luxgeekMy lxde environ works fine, it's just the various ubuntu desktops that are borked and ONLY on this user.01:40

trismNFisher: are you sure you're using gnome classic? if so make sure to click on an empty area of the panel01:41
sparky-nah, but you would lose customization :-)   nowadays I use chrome and my bookmarks and apps are in the cloud01:41
luxgeeksparky-: Ubuntu cloud?01:41
sparky-so deleting desktop dot-dirs don't bug me as much01:42
simononlaptopOk this also has been bugging me, i always get errors with system v utilities updates01:42
luxgeeksparky-: I ask because I've use it myself...hadn't thought of putting those there.01:42
NFishertrism, ok thy had to deactivate annotation-feature in compiz-config... can you tell me where i can change the away from that dark theme?01:42
NFisheri wanted to use Human.01:42
luxgeeksparky-: How can I set it so those get syncd without having to export them first?01:42
trismNFisher: human hasn't been ported to gtk3 yet (at least not the one in the repo)01:42
sparky-chrome can now sync bookmarks on different computers if you log into google account01:43
NFishertrism, yeah, because since i wanted the panels to be transparent it looks very odd when the Application und User-Status Panel are still black01:44
sparky-luxgeek, so first you'd log into google acct on the machine with the most important bookmarks, sync to cloud, then you'd gloom on more bookmarks from other machines and overtime as you clean up, you'd have nice sync'd bookmarks01:45

Guest33146Earlier today i tried to install linux mint 9 on a friend computer02:40
Guest33146when i tried to update all hell broke loose02:40
Guest33146i guess it was because the iso was out of date (it has not been updated since release)02:40
Guest33146I am downloading ubuntu 10.04.4; so my question is. Is that iso updated; does it allows me to do a complete dist-update without problems?02:41

ubottuGuest31981: A dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.02:43
Guest31981well that was a typo02:44
bazhangGuest31981, dist-upgrade is not a version upgrade02:44
Guest31981but, the problem is that when i tried to dist-upgrade the mint 9 all hell broke loose02:44
Guest31981and i am not that experienced to fix it be myself02:44
mkultra_yeah do it from iso02:44
Guest31981i am expecting that the 10.4.4 will go out smoother02:45
bazhangGuest31981, we dont support mint here, not sure why you are mentioning mint02:45
Guest31981because mint 9 is based on ubuntu 10.0402:45
mkultra_make a /boot and /home and / partition02:45
Guest31981it would be similar to make a complete dist-updgrade from a 10.04.0 iso02:45

bazhanganelyze, ubuntu support question?04:19
almoxarifethe... noticed that tab complete worked with my nick??? try that with yours04:19
onoez_omgsacarlson, iw shows it supports ap mode obviously04:19
Wingedepmp6nl, any firewalls enabled on the boxes?04:19
sacarlsononoez_omg: ok sounds like it's not the driver then the new bug must be in hostap,  time to backup to 11.1004:19
pmp6nlWingede, IDK, whats the best way to check?04:19
sacarlsononoez_omg: or just write your own script to setup an access point, it's not that hard04:20
Wingedepmp6nl, at consoles sudo iptables -L04:20
thealmoxarife, could you please explein me that?? I really don't undestand04:21
onoez_omgthe sad thing is that ubuntu channel +1 is dead :/04:21
onoez_omgi can't figure out if i should to write bug report04:21
theonoez_omg, dude the sad thing is the channel in spanishn doný work04:21
almoxarifethe.........., nothing, nevermind, all is good04:22
Wingedepmp6nl, 3 chains - if they are all are accept it pretty much rules firewalls out also04:22
onoez_omgthe, i don't speak spanish04:22
pmp6nlWingede, that is what they say04:22
pmp6nlWingede, its odd that putty works but I cannot ssh in via terminal or use rsync04:23
sacarlsononoez_omg: something like this (but this looks old) you can setup shareing https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet/ConnectionSharing04:23
theonoez_omg, i do, and it's a little dicult to me this04:23
Xgateshey guys04:23
almoxarifewhat is used to collect data from an .inf file to create a driver?04:23
onoez_omgthe, how can i help u?04:23
CFHowlettXgates   greetings04:24
sacarlsonthe: google has some cool translation,  best research how to use it04:24
Wingedepmp6nl, im not familiar with unison, but assuming from your comments the sync is done over ssh ?04:24
=== MogDog is now known as Guest80172
Xgatescan someone tell me if any of the modules that get loaded at run time have anything to do with making the backlight brightness work for a laptop with the F keys? In Ubuntu they work for a Dell 15R but in another distro that I'd like to also run they don04:24
thesacarlson, google tranlate  sucks!04:24
theonoez_omg,  you can do nothing04:25
pmp6nlWingede, yes, I am trying anyway.  I dont care how they sync, I just want them to sync over the network04:25
XgatesSo i'm trying to figure out how Ubuntu controls the backlight F key adjustements in Ubuntu...04:25
sacarlsonthe: so you don't know what  a checkbox is in a gui ?04:25
CFHowlettXgates   probably via hardware specific plugins.  At least that's what my dell 1545 shows...04:25
Wingedepmp6nl, perhaps http://www.howtoforge.com/setting-up-unison-file-synchronization-between-two-servers-on-ubuntu-11.10 can help04:25
almoxarifesacarlson: I am actually impressed with google translation, I have not figured out if they are doing literal or have little google-gnomes in the back doing long hand translation. btw, that would be the job I would quit to work in a salt mine, god I hated translating04:26
CFHowlettXgates   try this in a terminal: locate dell04:26
XgatesCFHowlett: what you mean software/firmware that Ubuntu installs?04:26
pmp6nlWingede, humm I tried some of that but no dice.  I think the underlying problem is not being able to ssh in via terminal... isnt that odd?04:26
thesacarlson, what is that?04:26
CFHowlettXgates   dell firmware via ubuntu04:27
XgatesCFHowlett: I'm not on Ubuntu at the moment04:27
XgatesCFHowlett: could you show me the name of the package?04:27
almoxarifewhat is used to collect data from an .inf file to create a driver?04:27
thealmoxarife, i think the same i hate translate to04:28
Wingedepmp6nl, is ssh installed?04:28
pmp6nlWingede, yes it is, on both04:28

Wingedepmp6nl, are you trying to ssh using root as username?04:29
theyes chrome too, but it has many problems04:29
XgatesCFHowlett: I need to know the package name so I can look it up online to see if I can get the source, etc...04:29
pmp6nlWingede,  no, the reg user name.04:29
almoxarifethe.... chrome has problems?04:29

CFHowlettxgates see the dell recovery media creator ...04:31

thesacarlson, ok let me see somethink in spanish04:32
XgatesCFHowlett: what does the Dell receovery have to do with Backlight for a laptop?04:32
CFHowlettXgates   the dell firmware packages control media keys like lighting, music, etc04:32

RalieghSo again, does anyone know what I need to do to make a script that can be run on a Windows PC that runs an init.d script on my Ubuntu server?04:33
sacarlsonXgates: on your other question to find what package a file comes from http://www.ubuntugeek.com/what-package-is-that-file-in.html04:34
thesacarlson, LOL i allredy understand, but what you mean?? i don't know what do you say04:34
Ben64Raliegh: open up putty and run the script?04:35
CFHowlettXgates   see i8kutils firmware-addon-dell04:35
onoez_omgfixed, an issue with reading configuration files04:35
Xgatessacarlson: I'm not on or running Ubuntu04:35
XgatesCFHowlett: what's i8kutils part of the name?04:36
sacarlsonthe: ok next thing to learn GUI  or graphical user interface http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphical_user_interface04:36
CFHowlettXgates   2 dell pacakges: i8kutils and firmware-addon-dell04:36
Xgatesok thanks04:36
CFHowlettXgates   good luck04:36
thesacarlson, I undeetand that04:37
RalieghBen64: I need a script to automatically do that. It's to reset my shoutcast services when they need to remotely, without them having remote access and shit.04:37
Ben64Raliegh: why do it from windows04:38
RalieghBecause most of my clients RUN windows...04:38
theI miss my windows04:38
XgatesCFHowlett: Don't see like this is just source out there, seems to be Ubuntu specfic?04:38
sacarlsonthe: the gui application called gnome-alsa-mixer ;   checkbox>headphones> uncheck ;04:38
RalieghBen64: Missed highlight, lol.04:39
CFHowlettXgates   could be, IDK the details04:39
sacarlsonthe: or should the next leason be what is application?04:39
Ben64Raliegh: that doesn't make sense04:39
thesacarlson, man you are a god, I understant all04:39
sacarlsonthe: see google translators do work04:40
RalieghBen64: It makes... Perfect sense... Lol. My clients need a script to double click or whatever that restarts a service on my Ubuntu server. How does that not make sense?04:40
thesacarlson, google translate don't work04:40
Ben64Raliegh: letting clients restart a service doesn't make sense04:40
imbezolRaliegh: there are command line ssh clients for windows.. you could make a script that runs ssh and connects to the server and runs a script there04:41
imbezolRaliegh: alternatively, if the servers are running a web interface, you could make a small web script that restarts it04:41
Ben64that sounds like the best option ^04:41
imbezolRaliegh: then they could just hit the webpage on their server and restart04:41
RalieghWhy doesn't it? It makes perfect sense, there are multiple shoutcast servers on my server, and everyone who owns one of those servers needs a way to reset the service if it crashes or something. Imbezol, there's no web protocol, but do you have documentation on the SSH scripting? What language is it? I assume Batch.04:41
Ben64giving everyone ssh access is a bad idea™04:41
RalieghI'll of course obfuscate it somehow.04:42
RalieghAnd of course they're on a limited user login.04:42
sacarlsonthe: google is god we are just pawns04:42
imbezolRaliegh: you could do something like give their user sudo access to run the specific command.. like "sudo /etc/init.d/someservice restart"04:43
thesacarlson, on alsamixer i don't see  checkbox  who say that04:43
imbezolRaliegh: then just write a small batch file they can use on windows04:43
RalieghExactly, that's what I need to do imbezol.04:43
XgatesCFHowlett: ok found one i8kutils_1.33.tar.gz what version is Ubuntu running?04:43
RalieghBut I'm not entirely sure where to find docs on how to create this batch file or anything.04:43
sacarlsonthe: that's not the name of the application I gave you04:43
Ben64web interface would be much more secure04:43
CFHowlettXgates   I've got it on 10.0404:43
thesacarlson, google it's a god the probleam here is google tranlate04:43
RalieghTrue Ben, but I don't know how create a web interface to run a command on my server either. If it's easy though I would prefer that route. Is it possible in PHP or something?04:44
imbezolRaliegh: i'd probably just look at turning on the web interface. it would save you from telling your users how to get the components to make a batch script work04:44
XgatesI found this for Natty; https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/natty/+source/i8kutils/1.3304:44
imbezolRaliegh: then you just support the server, not the client machines04:44
imbezolRaliegh: but that's just me04:44
imbezolRaliegh: probably a hundred ways to solve that problem. all of them are going to require some know-how04:44
imbezolRaliegh: or some money to get someone to solve it for you :)04:45
CFHowlettXgates   same version shows up in apt-cache policy04:45
RalieghThere's a web interface for the stream imbezol, an admin login and everything, but nothing that can restart the service/program.04:45
thesacarlson, which one did you give me04:45
imbezolRaliegh: yeah.. you'd have to write a script.. perl cgi, or php, or something of the sorts04:45

anthroposI have an ati card in my netbook and I use gnome 3 (well, gnome shell). and yes, it falls back by default. you can make it work though05:20

gnome2it's just a transient option05:23
anthroposI suspect all the modern gnome  stuff will be based on gnome shell now. but some wm's based on gnome shell look a lot like gnome 205:23
anthroposlike cinnamon05:23
dungeondukebobo37773: Description:Ubuntu 11.1005:23
gnome2i'll investigate05:23
anthroposit's essentially the mint  developer's take on gnome 3, which basically makes it look very much like gnome 205:23
anthroposI personally like gnome shell as is, but i understand why you might object to it05:23
gnome2but isn't cinnnamon for mint?05:24
anthroposyou can run it in ubuntu05:24
anthroposi dont know if its in the repos or not. it probably is05:24

gnome2well i installed 12.04 + mate, then did apt-get update and system crash for example05:25
bobo37773dungeonduke: Well, you will have to install the package you want first.05:25
sacarlsongnome2: just more options,  problem is now seems everyone is looking a different looking screens and harder to know how to instruct to get what they want05:25
anthropos12.04 is beta05:25
anthroposthe beauty of linux is that you can pick whatever desktop environment you wnat, there is no right or wrong choice05:26
gnome2i understand05:26
dungeondukebobo37773: thanks, will do this05:26
gnome2so anthropos, with my ati radeon 5450 i might went into problems with gnome 3?05:26
gnome2this is no magic05:26
gnome2no beauty05:26
anthroposi don't know, but you can check google. if its the netbook chipset then it might be a problem05:27
bobo37773dungeonduke: Okay let us know. Not sure how much it will help since I think 10.10 was gdm and not lightdm if I remember correctly.05:27
anthroposnm, you said it was a separate card. it's probably ok05:27
gnome2well actually is silly what i asking, cause i already tried 12.04 with my ati card05:27
gnome2and went well05:27
gnome2thanks guys05:28

pratzhey guys can i have sound icon with music player in ubuntu 10.04 as we have in ubuntu 11.04 ?05:30
songxk_can 12.04 work well with ATI05:30
anthroposyes, why not05:30
dalek_my desktop manager died. I just upgraded from 10.10 to 11.10 and then I let update manager update... it killed lightdm desktop manager. Now I can't boot. I get "* Starting LightDm Display Manager [fail]" and it hangs there.05:30
anthropos(to songxk_)05:30
songxk_That is good05:30
anthroposI think it works AS well as any of the others :) you'll still have to put up with crappy drivers from ati05:31
E3D3I can talk nonsense but that time-indicator of new Beta upgrader...drives me crazy.05:31
scientesdalek_, "just upgraded from 10.10 to 11.10"05:31
scientesdalek_, did you upgrade to 11.04 first?05:31
bobo37773pratz: You mean like a sound up / down panel applet?05:31
dalek_scientes: nope. skipped it entirely.05:31
scientesdalek_, then you did an unsupported upgrade05:32
research4oscari created a group developers and assigned him shell /bin/sh and home directory /var/www.  I then created developer1 right and assinged him shell /bin/false and to the developer group.  The problem is i can't upload files.05:32
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade05:32
pratzbobo37773: sound up / down plus banshee player next previous in it05:32
dalek_scientes: it is pointless giving me browser links - I have to GUI to run a browser in. How can installing 11.10 be unsupported? What about people who installed 11.10 straight from windows without ever having 11.04 installed?\05:34
dalek_scientes: *no gui05:34
bobo37773pratz: Do you have "indicator-sound" package installed? Is that no longer available in 11.04?05:35
bazhangdalek_, whats the issue05:35
ozzfan76installed ubuntu 12.04 64 bit, works well but a USB 3G CDMA modem does not get automatically listed in Network Manager so i cannot configure it. The modem worked well in 10.10, 11.04 and 11.1005:35
pratzbobo37773: i want this in ubuntu 10.0405:35

dalek_bazhang: now I can't boot past *staring lightdm display manager [fail]05:36
bazhangdalek_, what about in recovery mode05:36
bobo37773pratz: oh I see. Do you have the indicator-sound package installed? Is it in your repos05:37
sacarlsonresearch4oscar: I guess instead of telling what you did at this point tell us what your goal is?05:37
dalek_bazhang: how do I get into recovery mode?05:37
bazhangdalek_, hold shift a t boot05:37
scientesdalek_, fresh installs are supported, and you can do a fresh install to your existing setup without loosing your /home files05:37
scientes^^^on shift05:37
turdcan i ask questions about Wine in here?05:38
bazhangscientes, upgrades are supported too, not just fresh installs05:38

scientesbazhang, he upgraded from 10.10 to 11.10 directly05:38

HeliusCron^i chose the install beside win7 option05:38
research4oscarsacarlson: so that they can upload html files.05:38

dalek_bobo37773: I tried that already... it fails. Hold on - I will get the error message05:41
bobo37773dalek_: Really? I have to hold ctrl. How did you do that? Or is that a default Ubuntu thing?05:41
bobo37773dalek_: Install gdm and switch to that and see if that works05:41
bobo37773dalek_: sudo apt-get install gdm && sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm05:42

I can't login via ssh, it asks for the password, then nothing happens anymore. Switching to text mo06:08

bazhangfoobArrr, what version of ubuntu06:08
bobo37773techlobyte1: Not 100% sure. But I think they are the same. Doesn't the important part of the handshake come from the router?06:08

toygardenGood morning people. I have problems with my laptop when resuming from suspend. Can't see the screen. Sounds familiar to anyone?06:18
bobo37773dalek_: sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm06:18
anthropostoygarden, do you have a swap partition that is as large as your memory?06:20
dalek_bobo37773: ok.. it looks like dpkg is runing automatically after entering apt-get install anyway06:20
bobo37773dalek_: Well pay close attention. If it does not switch it that is the command06:20
dalek_bobo37773: it came up with a congfiguration screen asking me to choose between gdm and lightdm, and entered ok.06:22
bobo37773dalek_: ?? Did you pick gdm?06:22
toygardenanthropos: i'm not sure. df does not display a swap partition? what command can I run to check it?06:23

ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit06:23
michaeljonesif I give it its own hard drive?06:23
anthroposfdisk -l will list all your partitions if you are using msdos partition tables, which you prob are06:23
dalek_bobo37773: will reboot now to see what is broken now.06:23
bobo37773dalek_: Will be here waiting for you06:24
anthroposmichaeljones, it would be hard06:24
sacarlsonadnan_kamili: adhoc works in most cases when ap mode doesn't exist06:24
michaeljonesanthropos: how so?06:24
anthroposyou'd be switching hw constantly. your bare metal hw is totally diff than what it will see in the vm06:24
goddardany way to get h.264 support in firefox?06:24
anthroposit'd be better to run it in a vm in both cases06:24
bobo37773michaeljones: Please elaborate a little if you don't mind06:24
anthroposyou can run it on top of a bare bones hypervisor though06:25
michaeljonesanthropos: right but as long as the drivers for everything exist why should it matter?06:25
anthroposmichaeljones, like I said, it's not impossible06:25
anthroposjust likely to be problematic.06:25
toygardenanthropos: fdisk -l lists that my swap is 2928640 blocks. now, how do I know what blocksize my fs uses?06:25
michaeljonesbobo37773: I want to install ubuntu and boot it from an SSD06:25
anthroposwhy do you need a vm to do that michaeljones06:25
michaeljonesbut when I'm on windows I want to be able to boot that same ubuntu installation from VMware06:25
michaeljonesbobo37773: ^06:25
anthroposi think it's a bad idea. but i'm not going to say it's impossible06:26
bobo37773michaeljones: So you want to install on a hard drive and then put it in some kind of hot swap usb and boot that from a vm? Is that what you mean? Or do you mean an internal drive?06:26
anthropostoygarden, try sfdisk -l -uM06:27
anthroposhe wantsd to boot the same OS both from the bare metal and in a vm06:27
michaeljonesbobo37773: I mean a separate internal drive06:27
anthroposbasically he wants to boot a normal linux install in a VM without cloning it or anything06:27
dalek_bobo37773: hangs at a different point now. Also, it appears from the boot up messages that GDM and LightDM are trying to run simultaneously... perhaps I should purge lightdm?06:27
bobo37773dalek_: Yeah try that and then reconfigure again.06:28
anthroposit'd be better to run it in a hypervisor like kvm or something when you want to boot it "directly", so it's always virtualized, but it would not be running on top of windows always06:28
dalek_bobo37773: I also noticed that the screen flickers a few times before it hangs, like it is trying to switch screen modes but fails.06:28
michaeljonesanthropos: so have KVM also boot windows?06:29
toygardenanthropos: ok, looks like my swap drive is only 3GB and I have 6GB memory. also, I dual-boot on a 128GB SSD, so I don't think I can double the swap space. do you know of any other solution? as it is i just hibernate instead.06:29
joosengeeabout the ubuntu server room is closed.06:29
anthroposyou could do that. it's not what i was thinking, but perhaps it's better. anyways, I invite you to try what you want, michaeljones, and let me know if you get it working06:29
anthroposbut I think it'll be hard to get it working without problems developing at some point06:29
anthroposlinux is pretty tolerant of switching out hw, but this would really be taking it to the next level.06:29
bobo37773dalek_: Hmm. Maybe try killing gdm / lightdm from the console and then just booting straight into X would work or at least give you an error taht makes sense06:29
anthroposbeyond just changing out a mobo once or something06:29
HeliusCron^default ubuntu install beside win7 option sacarlson06:30
joosengeeI don't know the new room that tell about impement for server.06:30
HeliusCron^installed to same drive as my win7 install06:30
anthropostoygarden, you need a swap  partition as large as your ram to suspend, afaik06:30
bobo37773michaeljones: I do not understand the advantage here. Do you want portability or something?06:30
joosengeewindows 8 is good, someone tell me.06:30
anthroposI do not know any workaround. but you could swap to a usb key or something. personally I wouldn't swap to an SSD anyways06:30
joosengeelook friendly.06:30
anthroposif you have 6gb of memory the only thing you are likely to use swap for is suspending06:30
joosengeeand easy to use.06:30

dalek_bobo37773: I have just purged lightdm (which also took ubuntu-desktop with it). Now I am rebooting again. brb06:32
toygardenanthropos: ok, i guess it figures. do you know if there's other pitfalls for me, having a smaller swap partition?06:32
anthropostoygarden, what kind of comp is it?06:32
SmokeyDHey everyone. I have windows XP and ubuntu on my machine in dual boot. I want to swap windows XP for windows 7. Can I just erase windows XP and install windows 7 in the empty space, and then boot from a live cd and reinstall grub?06:33
CFHowlettSmokeyD   that should work06:33
anthroposSmokeyD, yes but win 7 will def nuke grub :)06:33
SmokeyDWindows XP is at the beginning of the hd and there is enough space available for windows 706:33
toygardenanthropos: a toshiba satellite z830, laptop, wiht ssd06:33
michaeljonesbobo37773: basically I want my ubuntu install available even when I'm in windows06:34
anthropostoygarden, you don't really need any swap at all. i would not use a swap partition on such a computer. the only reason you need it is to suspend and just to be on the safe side so you don't run out of memory encoding media or something06:34
anthroposbut realistically, you need no swap06:34
michaeljonesand I'd rather not do some crappy split / and /home partition install06:34
SmokeyDAnthropos that is no problem as long as I can reinstall it again06:34
bobo37773michaeljones: So you want a virtual machine that is synced basically? Also, why is seperating / and /home a crappy install? hahaha06:35
anthroposmichaeljones, you could just run windows in a VM in linux06:35

RedBunnyhow do i make a folder in my home folder Websites ,... show up on the left sidee of the folder program ....where pictures and documents are at06:36
michaeljonesbobo37773: /home, then 1 / for the native boot, and another / for the VM06:36
michaeljonesbobo37773: yea06:36
jessieCFHowlett:i tried thru startup but not booting06:37
SmokeyDRedbunny, there is a graphical taskmanager as well06:37
CFHowlettjessie   you mean startupdiskcreator is absent or won't work?06:37
dalek_bobo37773: failed again. Hangs at message "* Checking battery state..."06:38
sacarlsonjessie: it might require some changes in bios settings to change boot sequence to boot usb first06:38
bobo37773michaeljones: I always use a seperate /home. Hasn't given me any problems yet. I think I know what you are trying to get at though. I think the short answer is no. It will not work like you think it will.06:38
jessieCFHowlett:wont work06:38
CFHowlettjessie   try unetbootin06:38
michaeljonesbobo37773: techically speaking thought what is stopping it from working?06:38

bobo37773dalek_: Why did you remove ubuntu-desktop? I tried to stop you but you were already gone. Why all the trouble? You have some data backed up on /home right? Is that it?06:39
michaeljonesanthropos: I've done it, the first thing it does is it asks for a new key06:40
dalek_bobo37773: yep, it would not let me remove lightdm without ubuntu-desktop as well06:40
sacarlsonjessie: change bios boot sequence http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/ss/bootorderchange.htm ;06:40
bobo37773dalek_: Yeah ubuntu-desktop in your de I think. Your whole gui06:40
bobo37773dalek_: It is something you need06:40
dalek_bobo37773: the data is all still in my home directory. Ok, I will re-install ubuntu-desktop... but will that re-install lightdm too?06:41
sacarlsonjessie: that's my name don't ware it out06:41
jessiesacarlson:will try06:41
bobo37773dalek_: It might but it shouldn't run if you reconfigure to use gdm06:41
toygardensacarlson: nice name06:42
bobo37773dalek_: If it does just kill lightdm and gdm from your console and try to boot directly into X without a display manager06:42
dalek_bobo37773: it wants to reinstall lightdm again. Will try dpkg-reconfigure on it again when it is done.06:43
bobo37773dalek_: Let it and then kill your dm from the console06:43
bobo37773dalek_: Both of them06:43

CFHowlettRedBunny  is this in on your display?  Check your language preferences06:45
RedBunnylanguaages are fine ,...06:46

dalek_bobo37773: how do I kill gdm and lightdm from terminal and boot directly into x?06:49
llutz_Down_to_Earth: check where it is mounted to (mount), then "ls -l /mountpoint" or navigate nautilus to that mountpoint06:50
sacarlsonDown_to_Earth: is mounted where?  /media/??06:50
Down_to_Earthit is mounted in /host, sorry06:50

RedBunnyno its the appostraphies and like where my password is instead of circles it's the Y with lines in it06:51
dalek_bobo37773: ok, gdm and lightdm are killed. What now? Fresh re-install? ;)06:52
arandPulsar-: Yes, make sure to select manual partitioning.06:52
bobo37773dalek_: Not type --> startx06:52
RedBunnyit happendeed duriong a logout06:52
sacarlsonPulsar-: how is the sd card mounted?  there are many options like from a usb device or some systems have other options06:52
RedBunnyall was fine and i signed back in and it was like that06:52
bobo37773dalek_: now*06:53
Pulsar-i have a slot in the computer made for the sd card and i can use a boot menu06:54
CFHowlettRedBunny   reboot and see if it persists06:54
dalek_bobo37773: oh oh oh! I think my problem might be related to nvidia driver issue... tried startx... got a bunch of nvidia fatal errors.. no screens found, failed to load nvidia kernel module, ddxsiggiveup etc...06:54
sacarlsonPulsar-: in that case I think you have a good chance of just install from livecd06:55
RedBunnyi have i just got done iswtalling updates and it rebooted and its still there06:55
Pulsar-np ty06:55
bobo37773dalek_: Cool. I knew we would get a real error that way. Do you have an nvidia card06:55
sacarlsonPulsar-: you will also have to change the boot sequence in bios to boot from the ssd card first06:55
RedBunnyits the last thing i have to fix before i back up my sys from installing ubuntu from windows 8 and wasnt it foixed b4 i backup06:56
RedBunnywant it fixed b4 i backup06:56
dalek_bobo37773: I _was_ mucking about with "pre-release" nvidia driver in the additional hardware thingy before I attempted updates... might still be trying to use that? How do I remove and get the proper nvidia 173 driver back?06:56
dalek_bobo37773: it is an nvidia card, but I can't recall off the top of my head it's name.06:57
sacarlsonPulsar-: you might not have to change bios settings if you install the mbr to another device and just select in grub to start the sd as default06:57
bobo37773dalek_: There really aren't that many different drivers06:58
RedBunnyi down loaded advanced serttings just before that and changed the font but it was working for a while ,...06:58
bobo37773dalek_: So you install the proprietary one?06:58
Pulsar-i want to be able to use the sd card like the live cd06:59
Pulsar-and not use mbr06:59
Pulsar-that do able ?06:59
coder2Hello. I had to install natty kernel from lucid backports, but system do not shutdown anymore, just rebooting instead. Please help.06:59
bobo37773dalek_: Do you have a command "nvidia-xconfig"?07:00
almoxarifePulsar-: you want a live instant on a sd card to run, doable07:00
RedBunnyi changed itback and nothing07:00
dalek_bobo37773: there were four listed in the hardware drivers window... nvidia version 96 (I think), version 173 and those same two versions again but "pre-release" in the name.07:00
Jordan_UPulsar-: As long as your BIOS supports booting from it there is basically no difference between installing Ubuntu to an SD card vs to an internal drive (as long as the drive is large enough).07:00
sacarlsonPulsar-: maybe you just want to boot an iso file from your sd http://ansi.23-5.eu/2011/10/21/howto-boot-iso-images-via-grub2-with-ubuntu/07:01
bobo37773dalek_: Do you have a command "nvidia-xconfig"? Try logging in as super user "sudo -s" and then running "nvidia-xconfig"07:01
wifioregonI need to buy a good laptop that works well with ubuntu. Any particluar models better then others? Are there any companies that sell laptops with ubuntu already installed, since I'm going to erase windows anyways? THANKS07:01
dalek_bobo37773: yes, nvidia-settings is present.07:01
dalek_bobo37773: oops.. wrong command ;)07:01
Pulsar-ok so how about not touching the mbr ?07:01
bobo37773dalek_: brb.07:01
dalek_bobo37773: yes, the other one is there too07:01
sacarlsonPulsar-: you need an mbr to boot you can put it on the sd or other07:02
bobo37773dalek_: sudo -s and then do nvidia-xconfig07:02
almoxarifePulsar-: in order not to touch the mbr the live needs to start from bios setup07:02
sacarlsonPulsar-: you might also not that grub is modified not the mbr07:03
RedBunnyi read somewhere it might be the encoding ,... where would i set the encoding ,...?07:04
bobo37773dalek_: back07:05
almoxarifeRedBunny: you read it, keep reading it07:05
dalek_bobo37773: it tells me VALIDATION ERROR: data incomplete in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf and Device section "Default Device" must have driver name07:05
bobo37773dalek_: after trying to start X?07:05
bobo37773dalek_: Or while running that command?07:06
RedBunnyno im getting wierd symbols showingup,.... wondering if i have the wrong encoding ,... for the desktop07:06
dalek_bobo37773: no, after trying to do sudo -s  nvidia-xconfig07:06
bobo37773dalek_: You did one first and then the other right?07:06
almoxarifeRedBunny: if you are wondering then you are probably right07:07
adammw111Hi, I'm having trouble getting pulseaudio to see a network-discoverable pulseaudio sink/server.07:07
dalek_bobo37773: I seem to recall there is some command that will tell you which nvidia drivers are available for your card?07:08
dalek_bobo37773: yes and no. both together first, then separate07:08
bobo37773dalek_: "apt-cache search nvidia | grep -i installed"07:08
dalek_bobo37773: the validation complaint went away.07:09
bobo37773dalek_: okay. cat out the file to make sure it worked.07:09
bobo37773dalek_: "cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf"07:09
Down_to_EarthThank you bobo37773, and sacarlson :]07:09
almoxarifeadammw111: zeroconf issues?07:10
bobo37773Down_to_Earth: Your welcome. Not sure what I did but heppy to help07:10
dalek_bobo37773: yep it lists contents of the file07:10
adammw111it's appearing fine in avahi-discover, i just checked the logs and seems like it can't connect to the port, connection refused07:10
bobo37773dalek_: "modprobe nvidia"07:11
bobo37773dalek_: as root / sudo07:12
almoxarifebobo37773: do you have nvidia setup on your system?07:12
bobo37773almoxarife: Yeah. Why is the module called something else?07:13
dalek_bobo37773: nope... gives me FATAL: modul nvidia_173_updates not found07:13
almoxarifebobo37773: what did you install to get nvidia working? what version07:13
almoxarifedalek_: are you on a ubuntu system?07:14
bobo37773dalek_: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install nvidia-current07:15
dalek_almoxarife: yes. That is what I am using currently.07:15
bobo37773almoxarife: Does the binary driver not work in 11.10 is that what you mean?07:15
BriteLeafI am new to ubuntu... Can anyone please tell me what command I need to put into terminal to become root?07:15
bobo37773BriteLeaf: sudo -s07:16
bobo37773BriteLeaf: or "sudo su"07:16
BriteLeafthanks =)07:16
dalek_bobo37773: what is that repo?07:17
bobo37773dalek_: For an nvidia driver. I do not think the one you have is working correctly.07:17
almoxarifebobo37773: that's what I would do to install nvidia also, I would have used -edgers, but dalek_ may need to un-install any script-kiddie fixes done thus far07:18
bobo37773dalek_: You could instead do "apt-cache search nvidia | grep -i installed"07:18
bobo37773almoxarife: Agreed. I guess I don't know my way around Ubuntu as much as I used too. Does 11.10 not supprt the closed source driver for some reason?07:19
llutz_bobo37773: what do you expect as output from this command? apt-cache search gives no status information on packages07:19
dalek_bobo37773: tried apt-cache thing, and it piped out no results at all07:19
dalek_is there an easy way to copy/paste in irssi? ;)07:20
bobo37773llutz_: Oh! Okay. Please help with correct command07:20
almoxarifebobo37773: the package to use for nvidia is 'nvidia-current'07:20
llutz_bobo37773: apt-cache policy nvidia-current | grep -i insta07:20
coz_apt-cache search nvidia-current07:20
bobo37773dalek_: Are you catching all this ^^^07:20
wifioregonAnyone have an opinon as to what the best laptop manufactuer is that works really well with Debian based distros or other Linux distros?07:20
dalek_bobo37773: almost... still wish I had copy & paste to make things easier ;)07:21

Tradiehello, is anyone online07:23
almoxarifedalek_: and I would assume 'dkms' is already installed07:23
bobo37773Tradie: There are a lot of people online. We can see you07:23
Tradiei need some help with the ubuntu installation. there is something going on and its confusing me heaps07:24
almoxarifeTradie: just ask the question!07:24
bobo37773Tradie: What is the something that is going on?07:24
dalek_almoxarife: it tells me nvidia-current is already installed.07:24
Tradiewell, i try to boot into the ubuntu entry on the boot menu, to finalise the install and it says it cannot find the installation.iso07:25
Tradiebut the file is there07:25
almoxarifedalek_: so we are back to the script-kiddie tweaks you have added on to the xorg conf via god knows07:25
Tradieive had ubuntu running on this pc just fine before07:25
almoxarifeTradie: boot menu? which?07:26
RedBunnyi somehow loaded gnome desktop onto my sys, when i logout it now loads into gnome is there a way to make it just unity07:26
dalek_almoxarife: i haven't added anything to xorg.conf07:26
almoxarifedalek_: when you bootup, do you get to a graphics screen ?07:27
Tradiewell im guessing it is grub, but i installed with wubi, so its probably the crap windows one. i have had windows 8 dev build and server 2008 r2 installed mon it aswel, but i reformated before trying to install ubuntu07:27
almoxarifeTradie: it's a wubi install, meaning you installed ubuntu thru windows?07:28
goddardwhy do my toolbar icons disappear07:28
dalek_almoxarife: all I've done is activate a driver in additional drivers window and run an update through update manager. I get no graphics at all during boot up.07:28
almoxarifeTradie: you can boot into windows still?07:29
Tradieits just the ubuntu installation thats having trouble07:29
mondayTradie: what version are you installing?07:30
RedBunnycan some one tell me how to change the system encoding ,......?07:30
Tradieive tried 11.10 and 10.04, but same problem07:30
almoxarifeTradie: when given a choice and choosing the ubuntu bootup the issues arise?07:30
=== xy is now known as [xy]
dalek_bobo37773: almoxarife - I am tempted to just do a re-install of 11.10 from a live session, and then I just won't attempt touching the nvidia driver...07:31
mondayTradie: I bet this is related to in not using something like /dev/sdb or /dev/dvd something like that.07:31
dalek_it might be quickest solution07:31
mondayTradie: are you having an issue trying to boot into ubuntu or just during the install?07:31
Tradieyeah, ive checked the mounted locations, and there is nothing mounted -_-07:32
almoxarifedalek_: install from the 'alternate' iso , be brave07:32
mondayTradie: mount it then.07:32
bobo37773 dalek_ Did you try what was mentioned before? --> "apt-get install nvidia-current"07:32
Tradieive tried07:32
almoxarifeTradie: while in windows, you in windows right now?07:32
Tradieyeah i am07:33
dalek_almoxarife: I only have the i386 desktop version on my usb stick07:33
almoxarifeTradie: look for 'ubuntu' folder/directory in root of c:07:33
Jordan_UTradie: I would highly recommend a normal dual boot install rather than Wubi.07:33
almoxarifedalek_: and? got a 32bit system I assume07:34
mondayTradie: I've never installed within windows. I always install booting to the disc/usb drive, ..etc07:34
Tradieive tried that jordan07:34
Tradieit wont let me so i tried wubi07:34
Jordan_UTradie: "won't let me" is a poor description of a problem. What happened when you tried to install Ubuntu normally? Did you boot the installer from a CD or USB?07:35
dalek_almoxarife: my point is, I am not sure how to download and write the alternate 11.10 installer onto my usb stick via a tty terminal07:35
D4rkSilverHi, is there a group or something that gives access to internet, because right nwo, normal users can't do things like ping google.com while root can?07:36
Tradieit was a cd, and i also tried from a rewritable dvd, but it gives an error, something about bootable media07:36
Jordan_UTradie: How did you try to write the file to the CD/DVD?07:36
almoxarifeTradie: I have had a wubi install running on a laptop(the old ladies) now for ???? , the only issue that will arise and not often is when wubibldr crashes07:36
mondayTradie: this sounds like the disc wasn't created correctly.07:37
Tradiewell the disk has worked in the past07:37
Tradiei have 4 disks of it, they all give the same error07:37
mondayTradie: can you create a new one?07:37
Jordan_UTradie: And yet these same disks work in anther machine?07:37
Tradiethey worked in the same machine before07:38
Tradieand yeah i can07:38
dalek_i am going to run the installer again07:38
mondayTradie: if the disc has no issue no matter what you should be able to boot using the disc. Your drive could be having an issue preventing that. In that case create a bootable USB disc with ubuntu on it.07:38
Jordan_UTradie: Are you sure that there is nothing wrong with the CD/DVD drive?07:38
almoxarifedalek_: me either07:38
dalek_seems to me a reinstall is the easiest way out.07:39
mondayTradie: the difficult part of that is using windows to do it and usb boot disc creators sometimes suck outside of linux.07:39
Tradiethere may be, it has been a bit sketchy since i installed a new hdd. either the hdd or the disk drive show up in explorer. not both, so yeah07:39
almoxarifedalek_: yes07:39
Tradieand ill change the sata port of the disk drive, then try again07:39
bobo37773almoxarife: Would installing nvidia-current and rerunning nvidia-xconfig not work to boot into X on ubuntu? Why not?07:39
mondayTradie: the only time I've seen that issue is a screwy install script with debain systems. usually I'm able to mount it and continue but debain tells you where the issue is a bit better than ubuntu.07:40
Tradiedebian <3 haha07:41
Tradiei prefer ubuntu over other distos of linux, and i really dont feel like migrating07:41
Tradiei would rather get this issue worked out07:41
almoxarifebobo37773: it should, yes, why not?  cruff? crap left from previous installs clobbering what one is trying to do 12 steps later?407:41
mondayTradie: after the installs on my debian systems they rarely ever have issues.07:41
mondayusually its an old computer and I'm trying to install it via the internet. not a full media version.07:42
almoxarifemonday: debian? wtf is the point? install debian? really? that the answer?07:42
Tradiewell, ill retry the installation to my second partition, see if that works now07:42
bobo37773almoxarife: Ah, I see. Okay. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't giving horrible advice to someone. Although I do agree with you completely in the sense that I would only ever do a clean install on a Ubuntu system.07:43
mondayalmoxarife: just conversation. I'm not trying to make any points.07:43
mukeshece@tradie:and linux  Mint  is other dibian os i used to prefer as i do not like unity much07:43
bobo37773See you guys later. I'm out of here07:43

mukesheceIt appears that it's related to accessibility settings. I was able to fix this problem on my system by opening Universal Access, enabling then disabling the screen reader, then opening Synaptic again.08:13

YourZombiewhat are you looking to use it for10:00
u4iaJust has a host os for VmWare Workstation10:02
Lantiziau4ia, why bare bones?  if it's just for virtualization only - use esxi 510:04
u4iano other real function otherwise.  Simple gui, good hardware support, running on a 32bit machine.10:04
u4iaDirect X.10:04
u4iaESX doesn't do OpenGL or DirectX.10:05
Lantiziau4ia, workstation doesn't do directx either - just converts to opengl - don't build your hopes up on how good that it10:05
u4iaI've used XP as a host and it works fine.  Even used WineD3D just fine.10:06
u4iaSo it's functional at least, vs not at all with ESXi/ESX.10:07
u4iaI use Vsphere on my 64bit machines and directX and OpenGL work flawlessly.10:08
u4iaBut it leaves 32bit archs out in the cold, so host/VMWare works.  Just trying to find the right flavor of linux.10:09
BriteLeafsudo apt-get install no-ip2 will get me no-ip and install it, right?10:11

sacarlsonimachine: I suck at sound but did you try gnome-alsamixer ?10:22
VCooliodman420: so complare tldp.org to http://mywiki.wooledge.org/BashGuide, not everyone likes abs10:22
imachinesacarlson, i did not10:22
u4iaI just go with Lubuntu and install Gnome.10:23
imachinesacarlson, but I think it maybe to do with the lack of pulse audio daemons on my client side10:23
imachineI really wann go minimal10:23
imachineso I try not to run all daemons10:23
dman420oh that website did the trick coolio thanks!!10:23
imachinejust plain twm with a config10:23

Marzattau4ia: what?10:24
imachineit looks so nice at the moment, I need not more - with nvidia's virtual desktop at 4096x240010:24
imachineI just happen to like music to ;p10:24
imachineI could just throw out the pulseaudio thing in general, i don't think I need it at all10:25
imachineI could use mp3blaster directly, but it says it can't find a mixer device.10:25
=== Lupinedk is now known as lupinedk
sacarlsonimachine: I guess it's dependant on the application some apps may require pulseaudio to work at all maybe some don't,  if you like music it's best not to mess with the sound infrastructure10:26
imachinesacarlson, I can use padsp or directly address /dev/mixer10:27
imachinebut /dev/mixer is not there10:27
imachineso I can use pa, but it doesn't work, for some reason.10:27
YourZombieexploit/unix/webapp/php_vbulletin_template <~~ can anyone further help with what to do after i successfully completed this exploit on my server?10:27

u4iaMarzatta: what what?10:27
imachinesacarlson, no10:28
RedBunnyi have a 1.5 tb hd from my win install that holds movies & music ,... how do i change the permissions to be able to back up to there ,...?10:28
imachinethere's no mixer because there is pulseaudio10:28
sacarlsonimachine: make sure that your user is a part of sound in user groups10:28
sacarlsonimachine: or there's no mixer because there is no alsa10:28
angsis there any webpage that I can find linux drivers? Specificly I am looking for a driver of a usb wireless adaptor10:28
imachinesacarlson, there are devices under /dev/snd/10:28
imachinesacarlson, sq, timer, pcm devices,10:29
Marzattau4ia: lubuntu + gnome?10:29
sacarlsonimachine: did sound work from the livecd ?10:29
u4iaMarzatta: Yeah, LXDE and Gnome.  Beats Unity.10:29
imachinesacarlson, sound works in unity10:30
imachinesacarlson, but i run twm10:30
imachineI recon some daemons don't start10:30
imachineand permissions aren't granted10:30
Marzattau4ia: Xfce beets all together.10:30
sacarlsonimachine: yes as I said check your user to see what groups it belongs to10:31
sacarlsonimachine: are you using the same user in unity as in twm?10:31
imachinewell in group audio user pulse10:31
imachineso i recon user pulse is the user pulseaudio daemon runs at10:31
imachinenow I only need to connect to that daemon10:31
imachineso prolly start some daemon with my .xinitrc10:31
imachinei'll sort it prolly10:32
goddardwhy do my toolbar icons disappear10:32
u4iaMarzatta: Well, the point being, avoiding unity and still having the option for a lightweight windows manager and a full DE and avoiding Unity all together.10:32
u4iaBut whatever flavor of gui makes you happy.10:33
Marzattau4ia: Xfce is the best. Xubuntu is much greater than Lubuntu.10:34
u4iaMarzatta: Whatever makes you happy.10:34
u4iaLXDE works fine for my needs when I need it.  Normally I just use Gnome 3 classic on the desktop.10:35
Marzattau4ia: agree.10:35

fenixu4ia, checking supported models the go series are not listed in 660011:17
fenixu4ia, i tried latest nvidia drivers from ubuntu rep and x would not load....11:17
u4iafenix: so you probably won't find a driver specifically made for your video chipset, but one that covers the whole 6xxx class.11:18
fenixand nouevou drivers are crappy11:18
drecuteit won't work without xephyr11:18
drecuteit is called multiple nested X sessions11:18
fenixu4ia, yes but doesnt the latest nvidia driver from ubuntu rep already support whole 6series?11:18
u4iafenix: http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html11:19
u4iafenix: I don't think so.11:19
u4iaSince Nvidia drivers aren't "free" or opensources, they wouldn't be in the distro or the repositories.11:20
u4iaUbuntu would just use generic VESA.11:20
fenixu4ia, http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-display-ia32-295.33-driver.html11:20
fenixseems lite the latest one covers 6series11:20
u4iaWell give those a shot.  :)11:21
fenixi tried latest from ubuntu rep and all i got was input/output error when loading c11:21
u4iaso don't rely on the ubuntu repositories for your Nvidia drivers.  Nvidia is pretty good about providing drivers for Linux.11:22

alogicif you're using CSS there's no way to hide it from user, it can be reached with Firebug or similar tools of other browsers.12:36
jorsHi.  Need some advice.  Looking to resurrect an old PC I dug up from the attic recently.  Specs are 2.6GHz Celeron, 512Mb RAM, 80Gb HDD, Nvidia 5200 Graphics etc.  Currently has an original copy of XP Pro on it.  Currently getting the Lubuntu 11.10 torrent (it's at 95%).  But I'm reluctant as I've read that Xubuntu is good as well.  From your experience, which would be best given the specs?  If not, should I use another distro altogther?  Choices, choices...12:36
mcloyjrib,  just dont want the user to save the .css12:36
jribmcloy: why?  The user could easily determine the rules anyway12:37
insertbastidrazor: sudo apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade, sudo apt-get install -f, sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get clean all, sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get get -f install, sudo apt-get clean all, sudo apt-get autoremove, sudo apt-get dist-upgrade,12:37
rumpe1mcloy, it is always saved somewhere automatically. That's how the web works.12:37
alogicjors: it's more than enough for pretty much any ubuntu-based distro including the current one.12:37
alogicubuntu 11.10 i mean.12:38
rumpe1mcloy, have you invented a really awesome css-technique or why are you afraid of that?12:38
bastidrazorinsert: none of those commands will upgrade you to a newer distro version.12:38
insertbastidrazor: something like that, this is what my history shows. Probably I should have run do-release-upgrade and that's all :/12:38
jorsYou mean Unity3D as well, wouldn't that be a bit much for it??12:38
insertbastidrazor: well, now I know12:38
sacarlsonmcloy: they can clone your site with wget or other tools in a few secounds, so seems pointless12:38
alogicjors: no, i'm using it on machine with really similar specs.12:38

sacarlsonmcloy: I guess you can only give them screen shots of your sites to prevent that then12:40

genii-aroundinsert: Yes, after 12.04 becomes an official release14:09
Down_to_EarthDarsVaeda, it's if you have than one monitor14:09
auronandaceinsert: you can only upgrade to the next release or from one lts to another14:09
sacarlsonyzhd: read the link as it point out Finally, restart to load all the sensors. Once back at the desktop,  right-click on the top panel and choose "Add to Panel." Select "Hardware  Sensors Monitor" and click the "Add" button,14:10
insertauronandace: I thought so, so I cannot go straight to 12, right?14:10
sacarlsonyzhd: but you should read above that as well14:10
insertauronandace: ok, if they're both LTS I can14:10
genii-aroundinsert: If you go to 10.10 now, you have to then go 11.04->11.10->12.0414:10
auronandaceinsert: yes, 10.04 to 12.04 is possible when it gets released, they are both lts releases14:10
sacarlsonyzhd: maybe that applet is too old?14:10
yzhdsacarlson, can I PM you ?14:11

Down_to_Earthresize an empty space to the OS partition, i mentioned the Wubi installation method because i wasnt too sure if the OS will have any files that ubuntu needs to run.14:29
bazhangDown_to_Earth, the windows? or the wubi14:30

maxpogorelovbazhang, how to turn off 3d in gnome3?14:30
mustmodifySecond question (I'm using temporal partitioning here... fancy! :P )14:30
bazhangmaxpogorelov, what players have you tried that give the blue color14:31
Down_to_EarthI am not too sure how I can be any clearer.14:31
sirknighti am lookin for  a program that is for linux, simular to drangon naturally speaking for winows...do we have these kind of apps?14:31
bazhangDown_to_Earth, you installed ubuntu within windows. you want to make more space for windows, or ubuntu (the wubi install)14:32

sirknightspeech reconizing software?14:32
Down_to_EarthWindows, The "OS" partition, and i already installed ubuntu, i am on it right now. using GParted.14:32
bazhangDown_to_Earth, so the windows OS then14:33
sirknightsparky-,  whats the difference?14:33
sparky-sirknight: one is output, the other is input14:33
Down_to_Earthbazhang, Yes.14:33
bazhangDown_to_Earth, why ask here? you need to resize using windows tools14:34
sparky-mustmodify: likely not.  touchscreens will probably be usb-based ones and those should, if written properly, be hot-pluggable much like usb keyboards and mice14:34
arthurjohnsonsirknight: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speech_recognition_in_Linux14:34
bazhangDown_to_Earth, you cannot resize the windows os from within wubi14:34
mustmodifysparky: That's what I'm hoping. Should be a SWEET setup.14:35
sparky-mustmodify: but, barring space issues, the best solution might be to use one set of keyboard/mouse and run a software that "magically" morphs the mouse/keyboard to another OS when your move cross the screen boundary14:35
sparky-mustmodify: (that means setting up three displays :-))14:35

flamiHi there. it seems that I need the nvidia-current pakcage (295) from precise , but that wants to update half of my system with it, is there a way to get that package without all these dependencies on 11.10 ?14:38
genii-aroundflami: You could instead use the xorg-edgers ppa14:38
flamiOh then lemme google for that . thanks14:38
sparky-flami: are you up to building your own package?  you should be able to grab the source and build it on your system maybe after a few adjustments14:39
arthurjohnsonsirknight: I don't have any recent experience with WINE, but I did get WoW to work under it a few years ago.  It was fun.14:39
flamiwell I need the new driver so the cuda sdk 4.1 runs. so I can build stufff. I dont quite know how to build the nvidia binary driver ... well since its a binary driver :P14:40
sirknightflami,  maybe but what i heard is that you are better off to recompile the package to have it work ... nvidea is the better of the two packages though14:40
flamiI vaguely remeber that apt-get could build packages14:40
auronandaceflami: you don't build the nvidia driver, its not open source14:40

hed_thnx > genii14:49
pansetflami: See, as the I already have 'encrypted LVM' so all data is encrypted, BUT later in the installation when setting up username and pass stuff, it asks if I want to ecnrypt my home dir.14:49
robotboyi have asus k4 w amd graph card14:50
pansetSo since the disk are already LVM encrypted, does the home directory encryption does another layer of encryption on existing encrypted LVM?14:50

bazhangslipttees, this is the wrong channel. 12.04 is supported in #ubuntu+1 NOT here14:53
auronandacerobotboy: in windows? so you want a wubi install?14:54

Dj_FlyByWhats the best way to set an internal static IP? Via router or Via Ubuntu, or both??14:56
flamipanset: if you are the only user, that would be teh best way I think . the nice part of ecryptfs is that every user can "chose" ( depending if the are inn the right group) to encrypt or not14:56

pansetironm: max phrase could be anything I guess, it recommends above 20 character14:57
E3D3auronandace: Thanks, I guess I beter wait until then.14:57
flamipanset: the only thing encryption protect from is when your box gets physically stolen. opnce it is running an attacker can read your stuff14:58
flamipanset: thus I never saw the point of encrypting a server.14:58
ironmpanset, I mean if there is a limitation like 256 characters or so ...14:58
PaulYosefbut i won't give up the battle against racism even if it hides behind in the dutch ubuntu community14:58
flamipanset: if you want strong separation of services and users maybe look into LXC for containerbased virtualisation.14:59
pansetflami: hmm exactly the later part, since it would be no use of encryption on running server. Hmmm14:59

flamipanset: LXC istn quite as good as openvz yet when it comes to isolaton. but openvz only runs on 2.6.32 . ( its in debian squeeze) . also you could look into kvm to have complete virtualisation, which has a higher performance impact, but you can run anything in a virtual machine.15:02

Busbyhi luizqwerty the thing problem I am having is that I am running server 10.04 LTS, have webmin installed and I can't work out how to setup multiple accounts for remote access but each account needs to be secure17:53
ubottuwebmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.17:53

zelozelosi need flash, it was disabled/broken recently via update, now it wont install? what do i need to do?17:59
DoctorDyzhd @ Ubuntu doesn't need softwares like on Windows. You have the Ubuntu Software Center where you can install a lot of stuff and see each one what can do if you have time to waste..or how i said, customize it using Compiz.17:59
Busbyok so the only other question I have is this does this have a gui interface for management as I am very new to ubuntu and find it a bit easier having a gui at the moment17:59
yzhdzelozelos, what do you mean? it's dangerous to install compiz ? I don't want to screw up anything.. as I did some days ago.. had to re install ubuntu.17:59
cristian_cHackerZedi, alsamixer is executed in the terminal17:59
pg345I installed ubuntu oneiric and added kde-desktop. Everything seems to have installed correctly. However, when I try to login, I see the kde splash screen h and then a black screen with only the cursor. Is there anything special that needs to be done for it to work? I want an installation that has unity/gnome/kde available.18:00
DoctorDyzhd @ it's buggy. he means to be carefull on how you manage to edit the settings there18:00
bastidrazorpg345: you probably meant kubuntu-desktop?18:01
zelozelosyzhd, not dangerous, just a little buggy, esp if you want to enable cube or other options which arent already enabled18:01
yzhdDoctorD, I see. You think it's worth installing it?18:01
yzhdzelozelos, are there any other docks for ubuntu ? (stable), I don't really like the dock on the left side18:02
pg345bastidrazor: aptitude install kde-full18:02
zelozelosyzhd, the one on the left is unity, you can change desktop manager by logging out, and selecting another like gnome classic18:02
icerootpg345: sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop18:02
bastidrazorpg345: the proper package is kubuntu-desktop18:02
DoctorDyzhd @ i used to play with compiz and liked. but i prefer to use default settings and do my stuff & work at great performance. but if you feel more comfortable to have everything more smooth , then do it. also, you must have a graphic card and some good RAM18:02
pg345thanks i'll try that18:03
neo1691Hi.... Good evening. :)18:03
zelozelosyzhd, also you can install more managers, i use kde (plasma) sometimes and xfce18:03
HackerZediCristian_c, then try googling it because I never used it in the Terminal.I used the Gnome-ALSA-Mixer once before on my BackTrack.If you've got software center then try installing Gnome-ALSA-Mixer and use the HeadPhone vol controller from it18:03

neo1691can somebody please reply?? i am not sure whether i am properly connected to irc!!!18:03

escottvspvilli, well this config is a bit beyond me. if there is something in the bios that needs changing i would not know what it is or how to do it. i can walk you through a chroot reinstall of the bootloader onto the mbr, but thats about all i can do19:28

ValkyrieHey! What is the disk check command on ubuntu? I seem to have forgotten20:03
Jordan_U!fsck | Valkyrie20:04
ubottuValkyrie: fsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot20:04

mirko1conor_ireland:  {} is the find way to represent the current filename and ';'  is file's way to represent the end of the command, but as ';' is also used by the shell for the same reason, you need to quoted it, so it's not the shell, but find who sees it.20:18

conor_irelandmirko1: ok thanks20:21
conor_irelandmirko1: why is core not qouted? it is a string?20:21
escottconor_ireland, the shell automatically splits strings at whitespace. the quoting is used to prevent the shell from interpreting some symbols20:22
conor_irelandescott: ok thanks20:22
escottconor_ireland, you can type "ls" "-l" instead of ls -l i you want, but nobody does. "ls -l" however is wrong20:23
ValkyrieIs the MBR format the best for an 80 GB harddrive? ALSO, how would I go about installing ubuntu minimally, like without a GUI.20:23
mirko1conor_ireland: in the shell language, quoting does not create a string! quotes just prevent some actions to be performed on the string20:23

escottValkyrie, bios+mbr is easier to work with than bios+gpt, but you can boot either. you just have no need to20:24

ubottuValkyrie: The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/alternative-download#alternate - See also !minimal20:25
ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD20:25

joris456Hi guys, something sad happened to me today:( I "upgraded" to ubuntu 11 & now I can't start gnome 3 anymore.. the gnome package is installed, but when I select "gnome" in the login screen, it just starts gnome classic.. anyone an idea how to make my linux awesome again?21:20
ghallbergdysoco: Yeah, ubuntu applied some patch.21:20
dysocojoris456, Install Gnome-Shell ?21:20
bastidrazormcloy: postfix  and possibly the #postfix channel21:21
ghallbergBut I'll survive now that I know the power of ^W21:21
joris456dysoco: I have it installed and even reinstalled it21:21
dysocojoris456, Not sure then21:21
ejvbastidrazor: in this case, it's best to direct the newcomers to the community docs (imho); postfix is just one component out of many.21:21
joris456but it keeps loggin in to the classic interface instead of the new one21:21
joris456hmm i might try the gnome channel then21:22

joris456sparky- I think the ATI display drivers are not installed (?) in the "applications" menu I only see something from Nvidia & I've a radeon card, so maybe with the upgrade they removed the display drivers/or tried to install the wrong once21:28
h4xx0rdoes anyone have a solution to that problem of mine?21:28
sparky-joris456: that's possible.  even the public radeon driver should support glx, though ... unless you're not using radeon driver at all.  /var/log/X.0.log ;-)  read it21:29
