violinapprenshape: wait on it for a bit?00:07
killswitch_and what login are you using?00:07
trent_I think ubunto hate me lol00:07
meganerdkillswitch_: I would start by googling customize lightdm00:07
trailblazerz11violinappren: returns not understood. enter that as one line right?00:07
killswitch_(maybe I can find a way to.... work around it, using how you would do it?00:07
ring0trism, no cat? :)00:07
shapeviolinappren, It's been 5 minutes already, how long should I wait?00:07
Resistancetrent_:  did you enable the universe repository?00:07
shapeviolinappren, it looks like it's frozen and nothing is happening in system monitor00:07
killswitch_thx meganerd00:08
Resistancetrent_:  ia32-libs-multiarch, the package which installs 32bit libraries on a 64bit system, exists in the universe repository00:08
trent_Resistance i dont think so ive never heard of it00:08
meganerdkillswitch_: you probably want to create a theme.  I did this with kdm a long time ago00:08
violinapprenshape: hmm00:08
killswitch_all I get is customize appearance, backgrounds, etc.... um,00:09
trent_Resistance how do i di that?00:09
trismring0: I think cat is assumed when you don't specify00:09
killswitch_I changed the wallpaper of the bg00:09

trent_thanks man00:09
killswitch_and turned the auto wallpaper trasitioning off,00:09

zippy314Hi.  Where do I find the error log for the unity launcher (12.04) i.e. I have an icon that when clicked on doesn't launch the app, and I'd like to see the log file to diagnose the problem.00:09
meganerdkillswitch_: background is probably a good start.  I am not sure how lightdm does it, but I seem to remember putting it in a background image00:10
aguitelhow upgrade 10.04 to 12.04 in command line ?00:10

killswitch_meganerd light dm usually takes the wall paper from the desktop and throws it into the login screen. I disabled something in the photo I'm using for my bg,00:10
shapeviolinappren, It seems like it worked "as in, it uploaded the log00:10
aguitelBen64, it say: no upgrade found00:11
killswitch_meganered then I used ubuntu tweak to change the wall paper, and had to edit the lightdm.conf file to turn off the guest and user list.00:11
violinapprenshape: ok then, check the bug?00:11
killswitch_as far as changing the pre-defined text.... I've searched forums, google, and come up with blanks..00:11
aguitelBen64, it say: No new release found00:12
trailblazerz11violinappren: think that worked, took a couple off the unmet dependecies, just do it again with others?00:12
Ben64aguitel: i guess the upgrade isn't recommended yet. you can still do it with sudo do-release-upgrade -d00:12
meganerdfrom the little I saw, /etc/lightdm/unity-greeter.conf might be useful depending on the version of Ubuntu.00:12
violinapprentrailblazerz11: what remains?00:13
aguitelBen64, it works00:13
diverdudeIs there some way to replace h with hk in all files in a directory?00:13

wizonesolutionsAnyone know a forum post or what have you I could read to solve the issue where I can't install the updated fglrx drivers00:16
trismkillswitch_: you would need to recompile unity-greeter to change that text00:16
killswitch_is there an easier way to do this trism?00:16
wizonesolutionsI got this in 11.10 too00:17
wizonesolutionsAMD graphics card00:17

hdpbI can no longer get skype video using "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype" in 64-bit. any solutions?00:17
Resistancetrent_:  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=179  except where it says 'warty' in what you need to change, replace 'warty' with 'precise'00:18
Resistancetrent_:  that'll enable the universe repository, then you can install ia32-libs-multiarch00:18
violinapprenhdpb: does it exist? check the output of: file /usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so00:18
wizonesolutionswhooooa warty, that brings back memories00:19
Resistanceand after that, run that original command you stated, if it doesn't work, lemme know i can help you get the 32bit packages for certain versions of certain packages00:19
trent_Resistance thank you so much ill give it a try00:19
Resistancetrent_:  and sorry for the delay, i'm active right now in about 10 other channels :P00:19
trent_Resistance no worries about that you rock man00:20
trismkillswitch_: you would need to change the _("Username:") strings in src/unity-greeter.vala in the unity-greeter source and rebuild it (and/or change it in the po file for your locale, but I think it is easier the other way)00:20
violinapprenhdpb: and btw, there are 64 bit version of skype, just enable the partner repository and install with apt-get00:20

ubottukillswitch_: You can easily fetch a package's source with apt-get. See: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-sourcehandling.en.html00:22
bitplanehi all, Skype install has messed up apt-get, something to do with i386 qt4 libraries on my x64 system00:23
violinapprenkillswitch_:  its not a directory stemming from root, it will be the source code files downloaded with apt-get source00:23
killswitch_okay, got the unity greeter with sudo... now what?00:23
wyldekillswitch_: it's not really that hard. you just make a idrectory in your /home for the source like oo maybe /home/$USER/source , cd ~/source ,  apt-get source unity-greeter; sudo apt-get install build-essential; sudo apt-get build-dep unity-greeter; make your edits and re-compile.00:23

killswitch_then I open with text editor, make edit,00:25
EvilResistancevicatcu:  so what's the issue?00:25
Vuthhttp://www.linuxbsdos.com/2011/05/04/manual-disk-partitioning-guide-for-ubuntu-11-04/  please why do they have 2 ext4 drives and 1 ext2 drives? why not make them all ext4? isnt ext4 better? but on the ubuntu help website it asks u to ext3 instead00:25
EvilResistance!java | vicatcu00:25
ubottuvicatcu: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.00:25
killswitch_then run sudo make00:25
killswitch_and sudo make install?00:25
violinapprenbitplane: pastebin00:26
trismkillswitch_: no00:26
EvilResistancevicatcu:  i'd trust the community documentation over a random blog.00:26

Vuthhow about ext3? is ext4 better?00:26
escottVuth, in general terms ext3=ext3+journal and ext4=ext3+extents (efficient storage of large files)00:27
EvilResistancetrent_:  pastebin your /etc/apt/sources.list00:27
killswitch_okay found the unity greeter, now what?00:27
vicatcuEvilResistance: the "random blog" *is* the recommendation from the link you posted00:27
trismkillswitch_: after running wylde's commands, and making your edits, rebuild the package with: debuild -uc -us -b; (you will also need devscripts and fakeroot)00:27
escottVuth, so /boot has no real advantage to being ext3 or ext4 because you (a) cant recover it because you havent booted and (b) you have no large files00:27

violinapprenhdpb: what was the output of the file command?00:28

EvilResistanceor use Java 700:28

loconutany ideas how to get it back?00:30
killswitch_I understand that but.... sometimes I need root for some things, and very very very seldom do I use it00:30

Hooloovootux___: i'll explain a bit more in detail what i'm doing instead. could be that i'm doing it all is some craazy way. i've got a python script that uses webkitgtk. i need to give that script access to a z-server somehow so i installed it on my server.00:51

Vuthhow do i uninstall ubuntu if i installed it alongside windows7??00:54
Jordan_UDJ_XCON: Odd, the same is happening with me.00:55
wyldebe back in a bit, I needs me some coffee! :)00:55
Hooloovootux___: so i can do something like execute ssh -XC username@localhost at the top of my script?00:55
tux___Does anyone know how to set wine to check the executable bit rather than just running anything?00:55
killswitch_so it should now look like this, right? >> http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/963645/00:56
DJ_XCONJordan_U: Just imagined the nautilus window maximized without the min, max, closed buttons showing. Then you make that same window half the size, and the buttons suddenly show up.00:57

Jordan_UDJ_XCON: "gnome-screenshot -i" should work. (though IMHO so should gnome-screenshot without -i, I'm investigating that now).00:57
wyldekillswitch_: I only looked at the one instance but yeah, I saw the one at line 385-38800:57
DJ_XCONJordan_U: there is no setting for "hiding the buttons" on maximize00:57
killswitch_thought it was line 530?00:58
tux___Hooloovoo: I think so, I've never done this from within python though.  that will certainly give you access to X11 software in your OS.  You'll have to set up a new terminal window with xterm if you want to run a display manager like gnome or kde through it though.00:58
trismkillswitch_: looks good to me00:58
killswitch_awesome. now what?00:58

killswitch_now I would do sudo chown username:username /home/username/unity-greeter-0.2.8/src ?01:02
killswitch_then use debuild?01:02
ring0how do i remove the 'for purchase' category in software-center, so that i don't see the commercial programs anymore?01:02
trismkillswitch_: would be better to fix the permissions and do it without sudo (you may also want to run: dch -i; and enter a changelog message so the deb isn't replaced when you upgrade)01:02
Hooloovootux___: if i log in to the server using the -XC flag the DISPLAY var is still not set01:03

killswitch_and after it's built then I restart?01:06
killswitch_or do I have to do sudo make and sudo make install?01:07
escott!checkinstall | killswitch_01:07
ubottukillswitch_: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!01:07
trismkillswitch_: after you build the package, install it with: sudo dpkg -i package.deb01:07
trismkillswitch_: don't use checkinstall, this source is already packaged01:07
Brustofski-FanTrying to mplayer -playlist video.pls on dev/sdb01:08

tucemiuxJayWalker_, well basically - what is it that you like about the upgrade the most? and what is it you dont like??  the last upgrade broke my startup and ubuntu cries about configuring the network card when booting up01:16
uBUXUBuNFisher, i ssume your hardware is up to spec?01:16
oldskoolubuntuescott, what is the real benefit to unity besides the "look"?01:16
BlackAngelPR5 year support = stable stable and more secure01:17
escottoldskoolubuntu, its a completely different environment01:17
JayWalker_tucemiux, the installer is nice. beyond that, I can't get nvidia drivers working properly for 3d acceleration, and wifi doesn't work either. so I haven't really gotten a chance to "experience" it in a good light01:17

Brustofski-Fanit's mounted when you can open it right01:21

killswitch_and how do I force my ubuntu to lock an account if the password is entered wrong too many times?01:22

scottamungaHey everybody.  I just wanted to ask if anybody has noticed visual glitches with precise? I have a compaq presario cq60615DX with precise 64 bit.  No proprietary drivers in use; integrated graphics is intel GMA 4500m.01:23
scottamungaI get visual glitches after logging in, and I'm getting them now while using the latest version of playonlinux01:24
BlackAngelPRplayonlinux use wine to emulate windows if you have an integrated graphic verify your installed drivers :P01:24
vectory__hi, having 10.04 and firefox ppa since 0.6 i guess, im having troubles with flash now. it just disappeared after the last ff update to 12.0 :O does that still quallify for support?01:24

OY1Ras is the volume control controls the master volume linear but the PCM and LFE are either on or of01:26
L3topscottamunga: the driver you are likely using is xserver-xorg-video-intel... that one, however opens up accelleration. It is a compliment, not a replacement01:27

tucemiuxBlackAngelPR, you mean i cant upgrade?01:27

Jordan_UNFisher: What is your end goal? Do you have a lot of mp3s with 10 seconds of silence at the end?01:34
vectory__NFisher: using mencode or ffmpeg, but beware that are no light tools to get into01:34
NFisherJordan_U, no i just derived an mp3 from a YT-Video which has some jingle-sound at the end01:34
Jordan_UNFisher: Then it's proabably much easier to use a GUI app like Audacity rather than trying to do this via the terminal.01:35
NFisher..which i want to cut out obviously01:35
sk1special@david. that worked.. thank ya thank ya. but do i not want accelerated graphics  on because..theyre accelerated?01:35

SuperNoeManhey I'm on ubuntu 12.04, just upgraded from 11.1002:02
wyldekillswitch_: it's provided by another package/s02:02
SuperNoeManI was using lxde, and I switched to gnome to set something02:02
SuperNoeMani can't see the panels,02:02
SuperNoeManhow can I start them?02:03
t0rx__L3top.  12.04.  I upgraded the kernel to 3.3.4 because I read it had GMA3600 support02:03
killswitch_do you know where I can get it wylde?02:03
wyldekillswitch_: did you open that link i posted?02:03
killswitch_I did02:03
wyldekillswitch_: it's in the top 2 lines....02:03
L3topt0rx__: sudo apt-get install i965-va-driver02:03
killswitch_okay... thx...02:03
wyldekillswitch_: Provided By:02:03
t0rx__L3top, bzhang.  Currently it is using vesa and inxi reports I could use fbdev or intel. However they both hang X02:04
killswitch_I don't see any loc in the top 2 lines wylde02:04
quidnuncHow do I get the progress of a running dpkg command?02:04
t0rx__L3top, do I need to make a customized xorg.conf after installing i965 or will a reboot detect it?02:05
killswitch_ohhh okay02:05
killswitch_thx wylde02:05
wyldekillswitch_: did you actually read anything on the page?02:05
killswitch_(sorry, a little slow today)02:05
killswitch_I did Name: Synopsis... Descript...02:05
L3topt0rx__: I expect you will have to switch your Driver             "vesa" to intel, and confirm that apt-cache policy xserver-xorg-video-intel | grep Installed returns a version02:06
wyldekillswitch_: the reverse I think, slow down and read :) I don't mind helping but all my children are grown and on their own. I don't have to spoon feed anyone anymore! :P lol02:06
t0rx__L3top, will that version come back after it is installed or once graphics are running with the intel driver?02:07
L3topt0rx__: the i965 is a graphics accelleration compliment, not a replacement driver.02:07
t0rx__L3top, ok I get this currently: Installed: 2:2.17.0-1ubuntu4 (still running vesa right now)02:08

Chris6692Hi, can somebody help me? I'm in the process of upgrading to 12.04, but it's been stuck at the installation phase for over a day now. Would it be a bad idea to cancel the upgrade at this point?02:09
killswitch_so, wylde, do I have to get all of the built files or...?02:09
L3topt0rx__: that is what I would expect to see. I would install the i965, switch the driver to intel and reboot. This assumes you have an xorg.conf already to edit.02:09
killswitch_Chris6692: did you enable the networking, and select it to download the updates as it installs?02:09
wyldekillswitch_: it's provided by the libpam-modules package. That is what you need to install.02:09
killswitch_okay, thank you wylde02:10
L3topChris6692: What is it stuck on?02:10
t0rx__L3top, none to edit but would it be as simple as: X -configure and then changing "vesa" to "intel".  Or do I need to develop that config futher.02:10
Chris6692I did not. It's stuck on "Preparing libc6."02:10
L3topI would expect that to be it t0rx__02:10
Chris6692Also, I can't open applications or files, so the computer is pretty much unusable.02:10
L3topwell... and copying it to the correct directory/name t0rx__02:10
killswitch_do I reboot after install wylde?02:11
wyldekillswitch_: then read the man file or maybe have a search on the forums for how to configure it. I've never done it so I'll be little help there.02:11
wyldekillswitch_: only if it tells you to. Which most don't, if unsure a logout alone might be enough.02:11
t0rx__L3top, right.  Do I need a full reboot or just virtual term, kill lightdm, config update and start x again?02:12
L3topt0rx__: I reboot, but because I am lazy.02:12
t0rx__L3top, hehe, ok thanks.  I'm trying it now.  I'll report back.  Thanks for the help.02:13
Chris6692L3top: whoops, forgot to include your name. It's stuck on "Preparing libc6"02:14
L3topChris6692: I believe you will have to interrupt it, regardless at this point. I would also backup my /home dir if it is not on another partition already.02:15
L3topChris6692: can you ctrl alt f2 and use terminal or is it completely hung?02:16
Jordan_UChris6692: Don't cancel the upgrade yet. First I would check what specific command is hung, hopefully determine why, and either fix it or kill that command and hope that the rest of the upgrade continues afterward.02:17
killswitch_my /etc/pam.d/system-auth is missing still02:19
L3topChris6692: what Jordan_U said. I was going to tell you to ps aux | grep dpkg     there will probably be a process with a long string of stuff in it. Killing that process may stop the hang and continue the upgrade. Once it is finished you may have other steps to take, and another apt-get upgrade would probably be a good idea.02:19
frankcox767I installed ubuntu 12.04 and I cannot log in - it worked a few times02:19
killswitch_i have etc/pam.d but system-auth file isn't there wyle.02:19
Chris6692L3top and Jordan_U: Thanks02:20
Jordan_UChris6692: You're welcome.02:20
Jordan_UChris6692: L3top: I would avoid killing dpkg itself also, I would first simply look for the command using the most CPU (infinite loops tend to do that) and kill it. Don't kill it until you've checked with us here though.02:22
frankcox767can anyone tell me why ubuntu 12.04 would stop letting me log in02:22
t0rx__L3top, no dice.  X crashes when "intel" replaces "vesa"02:22

ryanrhee90it complains that it can't find the package "setuptools" eventhough apt says it's already installed"02:57
ryanrhee90so i think maybe it's b/c my python version is 2.5 but setuptools is a higher version?02:57

L3topryanrhee90: I knew as soon as I hit enter that I shouldn't make up terms trying to give people support. I mean only what I explained afterwords... something is held in depends at a specific old version, which is preventing a lot of things from upgrading so as to not break it.03:04
twoten210pepee: I'll reboot and see if it comes up03:04
pepeetwoten210, the hardware is recognized, and running fine. the problem is the software or your connection03:04

ryanrhee90L3top ah okay. would you know how to ask apt for a list of things that are pinned? I'm not aware of anything that's pinned down like that03:08
bazhangryanrhee90, dist-upgrade would release those03:08
b0otI'm going to be traveling internationally where there are heavily censored internets, are there any free tools here where I can setup a free vpn so I could get unrestricted internet abroad?03:09
bazhang!dist-upgrade | ryanrhee9003:09
ubotturyanrhee90: 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.03:09
bazhangb0ot, thats not an ubuntu issue03:09
ryanrhee90bazhang: E: Could not perform immediate configuration on 'python2.7-minimal'.Please see man 5 apt.conf under APT::Immediate-Configure for details. (2)03:09

ryanrhee90Sure. It asks me if I want to do: "219 upgraded, 213 newly installed, 14 to remove and 1 not upgraded." and then right as i hit "y", I get that error.03:10
Num83rGuyb0ot: I don't know about a free VPN but I know about a cheap one.03:10
ryanrhee90L3top: just did it. :/03:10
ryanrhee90L3top: I get " E: Could not perform immediate configuration on 'python2.7-minimal'.Please see man 5 apt.conf under APT::Immediate-Configure for details. (2)"03:11

plustax_on 11.1003:14
vexaxvhey i have a question for you guys03:15
wile-nileecg2916, hmm at times there are graphic card drivers that are not there and nomodeset is chosen from a f6 prompt at the try or install memory check gui, not sure that is your problem but thought it might help to know.03:15
killswitch_does anyone know how to set an extra password for login in 12.04?03:15
vexaxvthe fps has a noticeable difference from windows too linux no matter what gpu (is what ive come to understand) and im guessing its the drivers so whats up with this03:16
HickeroarHey all. I have a 640GB drive running windows 7. I'd like to dual boot windows 7 and ubuntu. If I resize my windows (C) partition, and run the liveCD and install 12.04, will the installer detect window 7 and set me up a bootloader so I can choose OSs?03:16
L3topWell... ryanrhee90 what would be the harm in removing python2.7-minimal? I mean... at this point I would start uninstalling broken things until I could dist upgrade, making note of what I removed... I am not sure it is the best advice, so I keep hesitating to give it.03:16
Hickeroaror do I need to do that manually?03:16
vexaxvHickeroar, it will but u have to do it manually03:16
vexaxvHickeroar, just choose custom when you do partitioning on ubuntu03:16
tLtplustax_: bingoogle for 'linux root password recovery'03:16
ludkilleraint that linux uses an ext file system03:16
vexaxvHickeroar, then set it up03:16
ludkillermaybe u should allocate some space03:17
vexaxvcan someone help me figure out why the drivers cause such a fps drop from windows to ubuntu?03:17
Hickeroarvexaxv: So it is relatively straight forward as far as the bootloader goes?03:17
wile-nileevexaxv, it is other or something other, and a custom install is not needed per say.03:17
ryanrhee90L3top: I don't have python 2.7. I /want/ python 2.7. I tried removing my current python, but it wouldn't let me: https://gist.github.com/3b1adb8f5dd1f33eb56d03:17
vexaxvHickeroar, it used to give u an option to install the bootloader or not but i havent seen it latley just make sure you click anything u see advanced settings and try to find it03:17
vexaxvdoes anyone know whats up with my fps issue?!03:18
Hickeroarvexaxv: Thank you. I've done the whole thing manually a long time ago, but it's been several years, haha. I appreciate the help03:18
L3topryanrhee90: dpkg --configure -a03:18
Hickeroarvexaxv haha apparently they dont support ++ here03:18
vexaxvHickeroar, np  lol03:18
vexaxvHickeroar, :P03:18
ryanrhee90L3top: did it. no output.03:18
vexaxvHickeroar, but yeah it is pretty straight forward its just like installing windows when you do the partitioning so..like i said keep an eye out for the grub bootloader option its a bitch to remove it atleast it was for me03:19

L3topryanrhee90: You have something in your dependency web that is causing an impossible situation... you are going to have to find it, and remove it, If it tells you it breaks something else, go for it. I would, at this point, go for plymouth. Again keeping in mind  you want to make a note of what you get rid of... and do NOT remove anything that warns you it is a very bad idea to do so.03:25
vexaxvayebear, im pretty sure it does, i think i remember seeying that but feel free to double check me03:26
ayebearvexaxv: what video card do you have? (the brand name)03:26

Basstard`vexaxv: Talk to the hardware manufacturer and ask them why they don't provide better support/drivers.03:28
L3topnp ryanrhee90... I just don't want you to break your install because of what I am telling you to do. It would make me sad.03:28
ryanrhee90okay, so removing plymouth isnot an option, and i can't remove gvfs without trying to install python...03:28

pepeetwoten210, you sure b43-fwcutter is installed? run: dpkg -l | grep b43-fwcutter03:28
j-lo-skihello room03:28
ayebearvexaxv: it is a different window manager. i don't think you could run unity on it, so just try using unity2d which uses metacity. to do this, you could try doing metacity --replace, but it could mess up stuff, so just log off, and log back into "ubuntu 2d" by changing the option before you log in.03:28
vexaxvi have a feeling most game issues on linux come from the drivers03:29
ayebearyeah probably03:29
tucemiuxomg the install is not automatic, it was stuck waiting for me to click on OK o.O grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr03:29
ryanrhee90L3top: okay, then how about this? Is there a way I can tell apt to install python-minimal with the option "-o APT::Immediate-Configure=false", and remove gvfs at the same time?03:29
ayebeari have an nvidia card and games run just as good in linux.03:29
vexaxvayebear, so use unity 2d and it should improve my performce?03:29
tucemiuxwhat a lousy excuse of an upgrade!03:29
vexaxvayebear, that was obvious lol not to be rude i mean i didnt think of it03:29
ryanrhee90L3top: I mean. I'm trying to remove gvfs so i can install python, but removing gvfs is impossible because it tries to install python03:29

bazhang!notunity | WulRadyansyka03:55
ubottuWulRadyansyka: 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 !classic03:55

wilee-nileejon180, I have not looked close but I think there are 2 ubuntu choices, or at least it escapes me as of now. You might not have 3d access as of now needing a graphic driver is this possible?04:57
jon180i installed the nvidia driver, which worked for me in 10.0404:57
wilee-nileejon180, cool so two choices did you get to the 3d?04:57
jon180i used ubuntu 3d because i assumed ubuntu is 1d, or is that not the case?04:58
jon180i meant 2d04:58

ubottukartook: 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 !classic05:47

L3topCheery: one moment06:18
ubuntoowylde: ActionParsnip Thanks, but i mean is it worth to upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04? I am seeking stability. Ubuntu is not fully stable on my coreI3 sandybridge desktop. Lot of stability issues06:18
L3top.20 does not understand the -P switch06:18
ActionParsnipkamilnadeem: what if you launch it from terminal?06:19
_jon180_how do i enable unity 3d?06:19

fidel_ubuntoo: at the end we cant tell you if 11.10 or 12.04 works more stable on your device06:19
ActionParsnipubuntoo: i always clean install new releases06:19
L3topCheery: 2.20 does not understand the -P switch06:19
CheeryL3top: oh okay. well it's still okay for me to upgrade06:20
ActionParsnip_jon180_: setup 3D acceleration and you can choose the 'Ubuntu' option from the login page06:20
wyldeubuntoo: it has run very stable for me ever since a few days into the beta1 stage. With only a few minor hiccups. But that's just my experience on the hardware I have.06:20
L3topCheery: Sure... was just saying if you were worried about problems, and were only doing it for the upgraded package...06:21
_jon180_so "ubuntu" is definitely supposed to be 3d and not 1d, right?06:21
CheeryL3top: but you think I could get 2.21 from somewhere myself? without having to wait for upgrade teams?06:21

ubottutrent_: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)06:23
ActionParsnipkamilnadeem: you need to install the package providing that file. Try changing directory to the folder containing the binary. The pwd may be important06:23
wyldetrent_: sudo apt-get install  libncurses5-dev06:24

restingi installed vsftpd..but hw do i set the user and pwd for the login?06:30
ActionParsnipkamilnadeem: it probably had the right numbered lib. Precise probably has a later version using a later number, so the game can't find it06:31
wyldetrent_: I just installed it fine here ... hmm06:31
kamilnadeemActionParsnip, so what should I do to make it work?06:32
ActionParsnipkamilnadeem: so what you do is make a link pointing to the newer lib but give the link the name your error gave. The file will be identical but the game will see what it needs06:32

kamilnadeemActionParsnip, I am sorry brother but I don't know how does one do that?06:34
ActionParsnipkamilnadeem: so if you have libjpeg.so.69 in /usr/lib but your game wants libjpeg.so.62  you would run: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libjpeg.so.69 /usr/lib/libjpeg.so.62     and it will f06:35
trent_Reading state information... Done libncurses5-dev is already the newest version.06:35

Jordan_Uferni: What makes you think that it can't handle GPT? Booting via BIOS doesn't require the firmware to understand partition tables of any form.08:04
ferniJordan_U: well tried formatting gpt -> did not find any bootable disks08:04
Jordan_Uferni: How did you install grub?08:05
linuxfreakerubuntuhelp_: Thanks for the link. I am little confused..if thats link I need to follow for Dell Poweredge servers to boot ubuntu08:05
linuxfreakerubuntuhelp_: It says EDK II build environment ...what that is for?08:05
linuxfreakerubuntuhelp_: Whats the whole concept here about?08:06
linuxfreakerubuntuhelp_: It seems it covers VM part..08:06
ferniJordan_U: I discovered it when trying out fedora, it defaulted to gpt -> did not work. when i formatted it msdos, it worked. But dont know how fedoras installer installs the grub08:06
Jordan_Uferni: There are some buggy (mostly Intel) BIOS's which do for some reason look at the msdos partition table and check that a partition exists with a boot flag. Luckily all GPT labels also have a protective mbr containing an msdos partition table, so you can still mark the protective partition active and the firmware will happily boot from the disk (loading the bootloader from the mbr, as it should).08:07
zmalexhi. I have a problem repairing my jetty installation. apt-get remove says it's not installed while apt-get install says it is.08:07
zmalexI googled to find a fix but i'm out of luck.08:07
ubuntuhelp_linuxfreaker: EDK II is just the environment and version control system that has been developed for EFI users08:07
ferniJordan_U: havent tried with ubuntu, since this created msdos table. this is samsung 5 series with some phoenix bios / uefi08:08
linuxfreakerubuntuhelp_: Okie fine...so are we going to build custom firmware08:08
Jordan_Uferni: Fedora's installer markes a partition active by default when installing with an msdos label, but not when installing via GPT (because technically it's against spec to have an active partition in the protective msdos label). You can still mark a partition active yourself though and solve the problem.08:08
linuxfreakerubuntuhelp_: and the custom UEFI firmware to be able to support Ubuntu 11.408:08
linuxfreakerubuntuhelp_: Correct?08:08
Boothkauronandace: Thanks, but i already enabled the canonical source. The problem I'm getting is apt-get spewing "407 Proxy authentication required". Problem is, I did authenticate and i can use the internet just fine otherwise08:09
auronandaceBoothk: sorry, i have no experience with proxies08:09
Jordan_Ulinuxfreaker: Please answer, why do you want to use UEFI? (And remember, you do *not* need UEFI to have a 3+ TiB boot disk)08:09
ubuntuhelp_linuxfreaker: thats the idea. your firmware can be ported all the way from 11.04 to 12.0408:10

wookienzhi, i have two nics. When the second nic omes up it adds a second default route that i dont want. How do i stop this behaviour?08:20
SunTsuwookienz: how do you configure it?08:20
Jordan_Ulinuxfreaker: Since you are using a 3+ TiB disk Ubuntu's installer will use GPT for the disk (and would even on a BIOS based boot). I *think* that if you boot the install CD via UEFI the Ubuntu installer will install grub-efi as well, but that's mostly a guess.08:20
krababbelwookienz: When you give an address to a link, it seems to get a route automatically. You can delete it using 'ip route delete'08:20

vexaxvhey guys, quick question what exactly does the command "sudo apt-get update" do? how come when i use this i get updates sometimes08:32
sburjanvexaxv: this shecks if there are updates for your system. if there, you get the update window08:33
llutz_vexaxv: it updates package information for available packages08:33
SunTsuvexaxv: it updates your package lists - i.e. queries your package repositories for them and they tell you what they have in stock08:33
vexaxvso how come when i get updates say i get 50 updates..i run it and sometimes ill get 51 instead08:33
vexaxvor 5208:33
vexaxvits almosst like i should be running that command before i update08:34
richtroyeI get the idea that in the world of debs there's a two-step procedure for making your system current:  (1) update and then (2) upgrade08:34
SunTsuvexaxv: yes, of course. You need to do that before using apt-get upgrade - or use some graphical package manager to do that for you08:35
isnnnnvexaxv: you need to run update before upgrade08:35
vexaxvso that command updates the lists so i get the right upgrades?08:35

psypher246realy realy realy good, i can't stress it enouhg, if u want to learn to code, doit, just a few weeks at your own pace,09:30
DracoZAI dont know why I bother with Linux in an office environment just creates more work for myself09:31
=== Guest56070 is now known as Bogdaniel
SunTsuesak: I'd only use "auto lo" and do the rest using networkmanager09:31
psypher246pungi-man: start it now, you can cath the last 2 weeks up quick09:31
aciculaDracoZA: best to discuss that in -offtopic unless you have a particular support question09:32
=== Bogdaniel is now known as Guest70081
nyuszika7hIs #ubuntu+1 invite-only because there is no newer release than 12.04?09:32
pungi-manyeah I have already started it09:32
DracoZAacicula ive asked a question twice but no response09:32
esaksuntsu my dhcp is on or off ?09:32
richtroyeI have a question.  I just found that on my ubuntu 12.4 with mplayer and smplayer installed, a video plays as a small image which on another machine (fedora 12) is resized to fit the whole window.  Mplayer used there too.09:32
SunTsuesak: it's off, there's no dhcp in your interfaces file09:32
esaksuntsu after i connected wireless internet  it happen.09:33
richtroyeEven when I type 'f' during mplayer play to go fullscreen, and it does go fullscreen, the image is still small and centered in that full screen.09:33
aciculaDracoZA: i doubt anyone here can tell you of a specific change to the printer subsystem09:33
richtroyeVideo in question is captured from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEpFnyDBj8w09:33
esak suntsu before connected wireless internet is was normaly09:33
richtroyeDo you have any suggestions on what I can do to get the 12.4 mplayer to go large-image in this situation?09:34
pungi-manpsypher246, thanks again!!09:34
aciculaDracoZA: except that im sure it still uses cups09:34
psypher246pungi-man: pleasure09:34
ludkillerpsypher246 , any website like this one to learn Objective C and Assembly ?09:34
ludkillertheres one more website like coursera.org where i learn Cryptography09:35
acicularichtroye: you can change the video driver output of mplayer, or tell it to stretch the video. youll have to look in the man page on how to do that though09:35
richtroyeacicula I know about the -aspect option but I haven't tried it.09:35
polishguy94I've reinstalled pulseaudio - there's still no sound and sound icon disappeared from my top bar09:35
richtroyetrying that now09:35
psypher246well not sure but check this: http://www.hardocp.com/news/2012/05/02/harvard_mit_announce_free_online_classes/09:35
richtroyeNo difference09:36
DracoZAacicula certainly there would have been notice of an increase in questions/problems relating to printing, I have done a clean installation and a simple task such as sharing a printer doesnt work, the "server settings" tab under printer properties has vanished but when you go to the printer properties to try and enable publishing you get the message to go to "server settings" to enable publishing09:37
DracoZAwhich is no longer there!09:37
ludkillerthanks i will get updated regularly about that ...... thanks again psypher24609:37
polishguy94fucking linux, nothing can just work, there must always something get broken without doing anything. PIECE OF SHIT09:37
aciculaDracoZA: hmm thats clearly not right09:37
DracoZAacicula thats what I thought09:38
ajay__hey all09:38
ajay__i just found a cool video09:39
ajay__just check this out09:39
ajay__Cool Futuristic Desktop by necopost09:39
ajay__on youtube09:39
ikoniaajay__: please don'tpost in here09:39
FloodBot1ajay__: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.09:39
ikoniaajay__: this is a support channel, we are not interested in videos09:39
ajay__i need to know how to install this09:39
ajay__sure. i know09:39
DracoZAand the worst is I now have the staff in the office giving me crap because they cant print and of course linux gets blamed, it's already an uphill battle trying to implement linux in a MS environment and then to have printing issues...anyway im sure my ramblings are falling on deaf ears.09:40
ajay__could anyone tell whats the error in the program. the author is not available09:40
ikoniaajay__: error in what program ?09:40
ajay__please follow the link09:41
=== linagee_ is now known as linagee
ajay__its on necopost [dot] com09:42
ikoniaajay__: I don't want to watch a video09:42
ikoniaajay__: just tell me the problem you want resolved09:42
ajay__its based on conky09:42
ikoniaajay__: what's the problem you want resolved09:42
ajay__the configuration file has an error09:42
ikoniaajay__: what is the application called09:43
ThinkT510ikonia: like blood out of a stone...09:43
ajay__the name is conky-Tronn.. it is a  Tron like theme09:43
ajay__its on necopost [dot] com09:43
fidel_ajay__: ever considered asking in #conky?09:43
ajay__i tried09:43
ajay__as I'm so excited and want it now09:43
fidel_as it should somehow be morte conky related then ubuntu? just my feeling09:43
ajay__I gave up for a while and came here09:44
richtroyeacicula I found the issue.  I had a second separate mplayer process running.  When I got rid of that, the video I was concerned about full-screened just fine.  Interesting behavior, an mplayer bug evidently.09:44
ikoniaajay__: conky-tron is just image files for conky09:44
ikoniait's just a normal conky install09:44
ajay__I installed conky09:44
fidel_its always a good idea to ask in the matching place - you wouldnt ask a bmw-seller for a benz either. anyway - good luck09:44
acicularichtroye: one mplayer just hogging the video out. you can set it to null explicitly09:44
ajay__and when I try to change the configuration to this file09:45
ajay__That he have posted in the website09:45
Lazikajay__: wa this interface looks good09:45
ikoniaajay__: if you are using someone elses config, you need to talk to that person about his config file09:45
ajay__that program goes into an infinite loop or something09:45
fidel_or troubleshooting that config using comments etc09:46
fidel_anyway -> give #conky a try in addition to here ;)09:46
ajay__I thought you guys may have tried something like this09:46
ikoniaFira: anatole ?09:46
MarKsaitishow do u all find 12.04 LTS so far?09:47
ajay__i never tried unity09:48
ThinkT510MarKsaitis: suprisingly good, need any help?09:48
ajay__its not because i hate it using..09:48
richtroyeMarKsaitis I'm hating it less and less !!09:48
ajay__try cinnamon09:48
MarKsaitisThinkT510, I guess not, I have installed it 2 weeks ago and kept upgrading, I just guess that I am all up to date09:48
ajay__best gnome 2 like gnome 3 interfaec09:48
richtroyeI got my twelve virtual workspaces by hacking a bit, arranged in a 3 x 4 grid in the workspace switcher, and I found how to set focus follows mouse, MarKsaitis -- those are always my two first hurdles.09:50

somethinginteresHow do I install applications to my SSD? I have a 60GB SSD as my / partition but apps don't seem to install to the SSD? How can I make most of my apps install to the SSD?09:55
ikoniasomethinginteres: apps will go where the package tells them to09:55
alankilasomethinginteres: well where do the applications install if not on /?09:55
DJones!ask | zzz_09:56
ubottuzzz_: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience09:56
somethinginteresalankila: I guess it has to be installing on there... just not seeing any speed increases. Odd.09:56

mrsuchyPL<somethinginteres> ssd is your main disk ? I mean / ??09:57
mrsuchyPLzzz_ ?09:57
somethinginteresmrsuchyPL: SSD is my main disk. It's my / partition.09:57
Imrachow do I add multiple ipv6 addresses to a single interface in /etc/network/interfaces?09:57
somethinginteresmrsuchyPL: booting is very quick. App loading, not really09:58
Myrttisomethinginteres: what other partitions do you have then?09:58
somethinginteresMyrtti: only /home09:58
fgMy graphic card is Radeon HD 4200. In thes page: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx what item should i select? Desktop graphics, embedded graphics or Integrated motherboard graphics?09:58
Myrttisomethinginteres: and only one harddrive, the SSD?09:58
somethinginteresMyrtti: nah, different drive for /home09:59
mrsuchyPLsomethinginteres I dont understand you. App dont install where you set or what ?and what is mean "App loading, not really" ?? :)09:59
mrsuchyPLtak you're time and write a problem10:00
ThinkT510mrsuchyPL: he means booting is quick but loading apps isn't10:00
somethinginteresmrsuchyPL: sorry, I mean that applications install but I am not noticing a fast loading speed from them I'd expect for an SSD10:00
LgLfg: try this one  http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx10:00
mrsuchyPLI see10:00
alkisg32 bit is still the recommented download? I thought in UDS it was decided to switch to 64 bit as the recommented one, does someone have any links to why the opposite was decided?10:00
krababbelsomethinginteres: usually apps will load config from your home directory10:00
somethingintereskrababbel: Ah.. that might be it.10:01
krababbelsomethinginteres: you probably could point ~/.config for instance to a partition on your SSD10:01
airtonixsomethinginteres: really depends what it is...10:01
krababbelI'd guess10:02
airtonixsomethinginteres: mozilla programs like to keep an sqlite database in your home folder10:02
fgLgL: Thanks. which item did you select?10:02
Myrttialkisg: usage surveys revealed that a bigger percentage of users were on 32-bit than was expected10:02
somethinginteresairtonix: a good e.g. would be VMWare where SSD speed would be nice. I note it does have a .vmware folder in /home10:02
alkisgThank you Myrtti, I also found a ML thread here: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2012-April/035054.html10:03
alankilaMyrtti: you mean, incapable of using 64-bit OS?10:03
airtonixsomethinginteres: not familiar with vmware10:03
somethinginteresairtonix: np10:03
richtroyeI am having much trouble capturing the resize arrows, both corner and side, on a typical window in Ubuntu 12.4.  I'm running it under VMware Workstation 8, but I've never had such trouble with other OSes I run that way.10:03
LgLhd radeon 4xxx... but its same for all radeon10:03
LgLfg: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI10:03
LgLcheck that out and folow it10:04
krababbelsomethinginteres: what do you mean? I guess putting the vm disk on the ssd would help.10:04
richtroyeIs there a way to increase the border width by a pixel or two, maybe, so I can get a better purchase on those resizing arrows?10:04
aviksilI'm having issues with system tray icons in precise. many applications (e.g. xchat) does not show the system tray icon10:04
krababbelsomethinginteres: but you can specifiy the folder for the disk files10:04
airtonixrichtroye: hold alt, middle click then drag10:04
aviksilthis was not the case for oneiric though10:05
airtonixrichtroye: note: no need to aim for edges or corners10:05
bubuzhi guys question. box A cant get through firewall to internet, but can get to box B which can get out to the internet. I need to be able to update and install things on box A. How would I go about an SSH tunnel allowing this?10:05
somethingintereskrababbel: I might try that actually, thanks.10:05
richtroyeairtonix Thanks, and I've just now found that smashing Alt-F8 helps too10:06
Myrttialankila: I can't remember the details, sorry :-|10:06
SunTsububuz: use ssh's socks proxy10:06
airtonixrichtroye: unfortunately gnomes resize and drag keyboard only shortcuts fail in comparison to kde10:06
richtroyeAll the same, those resizing arrows are flaky in the extreme and should be made unflaky either by removing them or fixing them10:06
airtonixbubuz: if you want a gui interface to managing ssh tunnels , try gstm10:07
SunTsububuz: -D10:07
airtonixrichtroye: that's a problem on every single operating system i've come across though10:07
bubuzairtonix, not bothered about that, would rather CLI10:07
airtonixrichtroye: at least linux has lazy grab to  resize and drag with10:07
bubuzSunTsu, please elaborate10:07
richtroyeairtonix I don't know what middle-click is on my laptop, and the couple of things I tried with Alt didn't work10:08
airtonixrichtroye: you can change it to right click instead of middle click with dconf-editor or gsettings10:08
richtroyeairtonix Is that Alt-F8 thing called "lazy grab"?  Sounds apt10:08
alankilahttps://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2012-April/035088.html appears to say that 25 % of machines would fall out10:08
alankilaI can not actually believe this is true, but I haven't read the mail yet10:09
richtroyeI guess I'll just remember Alt-F8 for my own personal use10:09
airtonixrichtroye: no the holding alt, then clicking to drag or resize in any of the general quarters of a window is what i refer to as 'lazy resize/drag'10:09
richtroyeairtonix Oh okay.10:09
SunTsububuz: openssh has a socks proxy facility built in. Use -d <port>, put that  into /etc/apt/apt.conf and there you go10:09
airtonixrichtroye: i don't think there is five minutes that pass each day where i'm not using those shortcuts10:10
fgLgL: Thanks. A useful page:). but i want to understand what type my graphic card is?10:10
SunTsuer -D it is, not -d10:10
richtroyeOh by the way, I'm an xchat developer, and I have a patch I'd like to test on 12.4.  Can someone point me to a cookbook on how to get and build a ubuntu source package, so that I can know and perhaps install the build prerequisites for xchat?10:10
alankilarichtroye: apt-get build-dep xchat should get you started10:11
richtroyethansk AlanBell10:11
alankilathe debian packages are typically build by some invocation like "fakeroot debian/rules binary-arch" at the package root10:12
krababbelAny solution to problems in gnome terminal with irssi?10:12
ThinkT510!source | richtroye10:12
ubotturichtroye: You can easily fetch a package's source with apt-get. See: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-sourcehandling.en.html10:12
richtroyealankila  Wow, that's pretty nifty!10:12
alankilaoh yes, apt-get source xchat downloads and patches the source, too. I somehow forgot to mention that.10:12
Imrachow do I add multiple ipv6 addresses to a single interface in /etc/network/interfaces?10:13
krababbelImrac: tried adding address lines?10:14
Imrackrababbel yes, first thing I tried10:14
krababbelImrac: You can do 'ip addr add' command10:15
=== iCeDrEaM is now known as Guest67068
Imrackrababbel That works fine, but doesn't survive reboot. I tried 'up' and 'post-up' with ip addr and ifconfig add and it still wont re-add the ip addresses10:18
Guest67068Good ornig for all.10:18
dubeyi have installed ubuntu 12.04 and trying to connect to my old server. It is now allowing me to login10:18
krababbelImrac: it doesn't survive probably, yes. Sorry, no idea how to tell Ubuntu to do that. Probably a script thing?10:19
Guest67068I update my ubuntu 12.04 now, and the system not working in 3D mode after update, anyone have this problem?10:19
bubuzSunTsu, there is no /etc/apt/apt.conf file10:19

bubuzSunTsu, how would I set apt.cfg to point to proxy then?11:04
MonkeyDustor Linu Security Modules?11:05
t0rx__L3top, I installed xserver-xorg-video-intel from the ubuntu-x-swat PPA, did an X -configure, replaced "vesa" with "intel" but still get an X crash with "no screens"11:06
fidel_sarthor: so your issue is that shorewall itself is available via apt - but the LinkStatusMonitor not. checked if that additional thing has maybe a ppa somewhere?11:07
SunTsububuz: just read about that, you need to use tsocks: tsocks apt-get update for example. apt doesn't know how to handle socks on it's own11:07
fidel_or considered (never used that function) to transform the .rpm to a .deb? which should be possible in theory11:07
sarthorfidel_, one can not install lsm via that comand. I asked in shorewall chan too11:07
bubuzok thx11:07
bubuzgrrr but I cant apt-get isntall tsocks11:08
fidel_ok i give up ;)11:08

dominikHi everyone. I've got some audio trouble. I have broken Jack3.5 port on my laptop. It's works fine, but it cannot recognize if is jack plugged in or out but it sometimes getting signal if i move a cable. I solved problem by disabling Auto-Mute on alsamixer and i made keybord schortcuts. Now after upgrade to new kernel and entire system (11.10 -> 12.04) Auto-mute option nothing changes. It's disabled but it works. Have someone any idea?11:21

JohnnyricoMC_polishguy94,if you're gonna try a clean install, try dpkg --get-selections. That should give you a list of all packages. With some usage of cut or awk you can then get a nice little list you can feed to apt-get after a clean install.11:58

farawayhi. i have a question to upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04 form cd. first of all, i have made backups of all data. then i started form cd to do an installation and did "upgrade form 11.10 to 12.04"12:49
faraway then i was asked "how you are?" and i thought ok, i don't wan to create a new user so i stopped the upgrade process which was a bad idea :D is the only way now to do a complete reinstallation. or can i get back to 11.10 ? i only went to the step "How you are?"12:49
auronandaceshape: you can't undo that12:49
MonkeyDustdandre  fresh install *is* required, tho, if you want to go from 32 to 64bit12:49

shapeauronandace, yes but what if I put sda2 let's say, it copied the mbr to sda2 correct? how do I remove the mbr from sda212:51
farawayActionParsnip: is there somewhere a tutorial for this ?12:51
_numberssince i upgraded from 11.10 to 12.04 ubuntu server 64-bit, my ~/.bashrc stopped executing12:51
shapeauronandace, even though there was no mbr on sda212:51
auronandaceshape: mbr is always at the beginning of the disk, you can put a bootloader at sda2 but not an mbr12:51
_numbersso i dont have bash completion or aliases12:52
llutz_numbers: "echo $SHELL" says what after login?12:52
_numbers /bin/bash12:52
shapeauronandace, so basically nothing happened then on sda2 correct? the mbr is still on sda12:52

fayazhi, what's the /tmp/python.cache_ubuntu for? it's taken up all of my inodes12:54

pfoteHi. installed a (k)ubuntu yesterday on a amd64 machine with a existing win7 on a seperate hd, guided installation. worked flawlessly with one exception, the grub did detect win, created a entry for it, but it doesn't work, it creates a error like "efi - file not found". tried to read up on EFI/UEFI but got confused, any advice on what to read to get that solved? i have no clue about these new booting concepts :-/13:00
krababbelshape: you erased windows mbr?13:00
krababbelshape: you can restore that13:00
shapekrababbel, I know, but what I did was somehow break my partition.13:01
serardIs there any way to have a /etc/hosts file writable by user ? Something like ~/.hosts ?13:01
shapekrababbel, gparted sees the windows partition as "unkown file system"13:01
tiduxhow do I get `keychain` to stop using GNOME keyring?13:01
tiduxI've tried just shutting off the gnome-keyring-daemon process with pkill13:01
krababbelshape: oh, I thought you only did it to sda, not sda213:02
tiduxbut then keychain fails entirely, unlike on systems with no GNOME keyring13:02
gaelfxserard: don't think so, the whole point of it being root-owned is so that users can't screw it up13:03
shapekrababbel, The command I posted above is the simplest way to restore the MBR from the Live CD, as Ive done it before. What happened to me was that I seleted the bootloader on a different drive, and when I used that command I typed sda1 instead of sda which made my Windows Partition "unkown file system"13:03
krababbelshape: OK, I see13:03
serardYes but I want my devs to be able to screw it as they want when they create .local websites13:04
serardWhere is this /etc/hosts being used & or configured ?13:04

chiliblueok how do you enable unity 3d, my gfx spport it13:05
shapekrababbel, all because I installed the bootloader on sda1 and tried to restore the mbr on sda1.13:05
gaelfxchiliblue: when you login, make sure Ubuntu session is selected13:05
MonkeyDustchiliblue  you can select it in lightdm13:05
krababbelshape: sda1 is a partition of course, sda holds the mbr. The windows loader is on sda1 for instance I think.13:06
shapekrababbel, which is the windows partition, instead of putting it on dev/sda. Careless mistake.13:06
pfotenobody a idea?13:06
DanielConvissorserard: hosts is used by os networking layer.  one possible way to do _something_ along the lines you want for web devs is to use mod_rewrite13:06
shapekrababbel, yes. I didn't pay attention because of fatigue.13:06
DanielConvissorserard: (in apache)13:06
tiduxnever mind, I figured out the --nogui switch to "keychain" and killed a running process13:06

fidel_in case of my dell mobile: acpi=noirq was a saver13:40
auronandacephzbox_: i take it you are using 10.0413:41
sledgesr4y, you need to identify your root partition (guy from link has it as his sda7 "Using sda7 in my examples since that is the root partition of my Ubuntu installation." but yours will be different)13:41
fidel_maybe worth a test - while i am not into that toic myself that deeply13:41

jrib!nounity | teabrick13:44
ubottuteabrick: 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 !classic13:44
phzbox_gaelfx: well, there's nothing yet on the vps13:44
fidel_teabrick: unity is just a desktop-env13:44
Guest68191hello, everybody13:44
phzbox_should I just apt-get upgrade or reinstall 11.0 from scratch is better?13:44

Picizamba: supposedly.  I have other issues with the way Empathy does things, so I'm not really the right person to ask.13:47

gaelfxteabrick: that's not what this channel is for, sorry13:47
chilibluefidel_, ok, didn't mean to ask an worn out question13:48
sledgesr4y, your root partition is identified as a file node under /dev, so it's full path and name is "/dev/sda1"13:48
polishguy94I can hit Esc and It interrupts logging in but then i cannot enter a password, login screen is useless13:48
sledgesr4y, start denotes an active partition. which 9 out of 10 cases is, but sometimes may not be your root partition13:49
r4yI know that. What I ment was from the pastebin I posted earlier. It has a star next to "/dev/sda1   *" and not the others13:49
sledgesr4y, just answered, and made a typo: not "start" but "star" ;)13:49

auronandaceBeelsebob: menu.list is grub1, grub2 uses grub.cfg and config files in /etc/grub.d/14:02
alankilaBeelsebob: no idea. /etc/default/grub might have something14:02
gaelfxpolishguy94: you can have ubuntu-desktop and xubuntu-desktop installed on the same install without issues, just select which one you want when you login14:02
alankilayou aren't supposed to edit the boot config file yourself anyway because it's generated from bunch of scripts14:02

Oasaamel: Check this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades14:13
gaelfxr4y: what hasn't stopped unpacking?14:14
cypher-neoThanks for the help fidel_ and alankila. I figured out both the package name and it's PID to send the error report.14:14
jpdskatspaugh: There's a nodejs package in the archives though.14:14

* ThinkT510 wonders why some people can't live without ppas, don't they realise they are 3rd party unsupported packages (then they wonder why things break)15:37
KM0201is 2.8 stable, or is it still beta?  that might explain why (or why not) 2.8 is not in 12.0415:37
alesanThinkT510, I said, I was hoping the new long-awaited GIMP would be available throught the official long-supported channel15:38
ActionParsnipKM0201: i've used it here for basic stuff, seems ok. Not sure on the status15:38
ThinkT510KM0201: very recently released as stable15:38
PiciKM0201, alesan: 2.8 was an RC last I checked.15:38
alesanKM0201, AFAIK it has been released today15:38
KM0201ActionParsnip: same here.. i'm a fan of gimp(like you, basic stuff)..  2.6 is fine for me15:38

Varsuchisyydraf: that should help15:38
Varsuchithey have changed it.15:38
KM0201alesan: well, that explains it.. they're not gonna put a beta in an LTS15:38
alesanKM0201, 2.8 will finally have one window mode15:38
skomorokhThinkT510: one or two flakey PPAs are easier to deal with than Arch, Gentoo or Debian unstable. It's a tradeoff.15:39
