Praxiaardmark, komodo edit looks pretty and exactly what I want, but so far seems to be a bear to get to work with RVM & Ruby hehe00:01

clarkmThe sound on flash is often choppy / distorted when running chrome. Everything seems to be fine in firefox - is this a known issue? I'm running 12.04 with chrome 20.0.1123.2 dev and flash 11.2 r31 plugin.00:02

Andrilreal headache after a beautiful upgrade00:04
derspanksterA minor thing but I have no splash screen during 12.04 boot. Booting with a SSD.00:05
phaidrosSancey: -pr doesnt exists, sry00:05
clarkmphaidros: haha, true - that's why I never full screen! But seriously, this time the sound from flash is actually unlistenable... as in, it isn't the normal sync choppiness.00:05
phaidrosclarkm: I always do: curse loud and heavy, close tab, forget flash content00:05
clarkmIt's a high-pithched distortion sound00:06
phaidrostho, funny phenomenon00:06
osmosiswhat version of python does 12.04 come with?00:06
clarkmIt's weird cause firefox never has this problem00:06
phaidrososmosis: 2.7.300:06
taxmani found a trap on 12.0400:07
phaidrosderspankster: nothing to do with ssd, just install some ubuntu-splash or themel, cant remember wich was fore splashscreeens00:07
phaidrostaxman: orly?00:07
BlueJayWayBe not afeard, indeed.00:08
derspanksterphaidros: I sometimes see a splash when shutting down but never at boot.00:08
jribtaxman: a trap eh?00:08
taxmanwhen you finish the install and change your only one user's permission to "normal" , the hell is raising00:08
ichatcan anyone help me setting up xorg to  vga settings so i can than install the  nvidia drivers...  i cant login to the 'ctrl alt f4'  console,  and i cant boot into grafical mode on   xubuntu and ubuntu  desktops...  gforce 6  laptop...00:08
phaidrosderspankster: reinstall splash package00:08
taxmanhahaha, it's a bit funny00:08
phaidrostaxman: there is still grub ;)00:09
OerHeksderspankster, me too, ssd boot too fast and go straight into login :-D00:09
derspanksterphaidros: I'll check on that , yes ssd is very fast00:09
phaidrosOerHeks: oh, true, now that you mention it, I only see my splash screen for the encryption phrase of the hdd .. hah! thats why :)00:09
phaidrosderspankster: forget it, you wont see it00:09
taxmanmy fast pendrive is fast enough for my 12.0400:10
phaidrostaxman: hm, depends on the IO ;)00:10
ichatcan anyone help me setting up xorg to  vga settings so i can than install the  nvidia drivers...  i cant login to the 'ctrl alt f4'  console,  and i cant boot into grafical mode on   xubuntu and ubuntu  desktops...  gforce 6  laptop...00:10
phaidrosichat: your question is very confuse, repeating it might not help00:10
derspanksterWell, I really didn't care about the splash - just thought I'd mention it - I thought it might be related to the SSD but have seen no docs to confirm it.00:11
phaidrosderspankster: well, one other ooption: crypt your hd, then you'll see the splash for entering the passphrase :)00:11
derspanksterphaidros:  Yes, my test box is booting from a mechanical drive and 12.04 on it shows splash.00:12
phaidrosderspankster: btw, I think it is ubuntu-plymouth-theme-*00:12
ichatphaidros - my questing it really simple... i cant but into grafic mode (all white screen an than it stops..... but duing ubuntu it wont let me escape to the   cli promt either...  - than i tried to go into recovery mode and added   vga=771  to my  boot conf.... as per wiki discripting... but that is ignored also... in they end it leaves me with a complete useless new ubuntu install00:13
compdocif I were to clone a drive running Ubuntu and copy it to a few systems, do I need to worry about duplicate uuid's or anything that might compromise the systems?00:13
derspanksterphaidros: Thanks for the insight.00:13
phaidrosichat, where is your question?00:14
ichathow do i fix it00:14
phaidrosichat: choose failsafe mode from boot loader00:14
taxmanthe 12.04 may refuse to install. if you don't connect the network cable and let it communicate with the mothership00:14
OnlyodinXChat thinks it's fun to do a /who on every channel I join, and it's causing freenode to disconnect me. Any easy way to turn it off?00:15
phaidroscompdoc: nope, not that I can think of00:15
compdocthanks00:15
ichatphaidros - and than?00:15
mkquisthope this is on topic, but can gimp 2.8 be installed on natty?00:15
phaidroscompdoc: other than hostname & ip (if set fixed), as mac adresses are hw depending00:15
phaidrosmkquist: look for a ppa with gimp 2.8 and see if they have packages for natty, if not, upgrade :)00:16
ichatwith 10.4 it was easy i just had to remove xorg.conf   now it doesn't even exist00:16
graftis there a gimp 2.8? more importantly, does it have single-window mode?00:16
mkquistgraft: yes00:16

doki_penwho do i get this? http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/graphics/nip200:16
doki_penhow do i get it00:16
phaidrosichat: I am not sure what the exact problem might be, but uninstalling graphics driver might help for a start, it seems you driver is pivking a resoltion to high for your screen (hence the white screen)00:17
mkquistgraft: its out, just not sure on what it can be installed  =(00:17

Djeff-oHello, I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and I can't format a usb stick to ext2, ext3 or ext4 using gparted. When I do, a red icon with an exclamation mark appears. When I unplugg it and re-insert it again i get the error message: "Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail  or so"00:20
doki_peniceroot: no, 11.10, but I just switched the webpage and it says it's available. I think this is a case of rackspace messing with me00:20
BrokenCogphaidros, dist upgrade yes, via the software center thingy ... sorry not uber on Ubuntu myself, it's my wifes laptop.00:20
doki_peniceroot: looks like they have their own apt mirrors00:20

ubottuichat: To start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode00:22
phaidrosichat: well, not a solution, but a login screnn tho :)00:22
doki_peniceroot: right.. that is what rackspace has on their default ubuntu image.  I Just realized that..00:23
BrokenCogphaidros thanks, I'll try it now.00:23
BrokenCogphaidros so it returned that bpkg --configure -r was needed ... looks like it's getting back on track.  thanks for the tip.  I need to learn this apt-get system ... Slackware has something a bit different.00:25
phaidrosBrokenCog: apt-get is nice, aptitude even more handy sometimes .. and *very* convenient compared to slack ;)00:25

taxmanaptitude is obsolete on 12.04. i have tested it00:26
iceroottaxman: aptitude is still the better tool from both00:27
taxmanthere is no gnome classic on 12.04 either00:27
phaidrosBrokenCog: what actually happend, is that apt realized that the underlying tool (dpkg) wasnt finished in some state and told ya the right command to let dpkg finish its current job. afterwards run that apt command again, as not all dpkg jobs might have been queeued yet00:27
xangua!nounity | taxman00:27
ubottutaxman: 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 !classic00:27

iceroottaxman: there are some tools which are better then the default but they are not installed by default (gimp, vim, zsh, aptitude)00:28

aardmarkfor anyone out there that has encountered this issue: I've been having a tough time figuring out how to transfer ~100GB of data from my Mac to my Ubuntu box, and coming across several lame issues. Best resolution: direct ethernet link between the Mac and the Ubuntu box, and I'm able to transfer roughly 1GB per minute00:34
aardmarkcould probably go even faster if I wasn't using SCP, but hey - this is much less painful than shuttling a thumbdrive00:35
taxmanmac has thunderbolt00:35
tarwichaardmark: Why didn't you boot into Target Disk Mode and read from that? Was it slower? (might have been, not sure)00:35
aardmarkusing target disk mode over ethernet with ubuntu00:36
aardmark?00:36
aardmarktaxman: my mac doesn't have thunderbolt00:36
taxmanO.o00:37
tarwichNegative. Mac has a mode called target disk mode where the mac functions as a glorified USB stick — allowing you to copy to and from it by plugging it into a usb or firewire port.00:37
tarwichaardmark: Sorry, I should have used your name! :-|00:37
aardmarktarwich: oo mount the drive over USB in target mode... that'd have been interesting - I thought it only worked over firewire00:38
aardmarktarwich: I'll have to try that00:38
tarwichaardmark: checking...00:38
ztag100tarwich, Is there a way to do that with ubuntu?00:38
aardmarktarwich: that'd have probably been faster because SCP does the encryption with the transfer00:38
tarwichztag100: negative. It's a mac bios thing.00:39
taxmanmac has no bios00:39

citizenkeysso i removed proftpd.  but now when i try to reinstall it with apt-get install proftpd, it doesn't ask me which mode to use.01:06

tucemiux_mobanyone knows of an "official" fix to the dreaded waiting up to 60 more seconds for network configuration...01:08
walbertSyphirX: What brand of Linux are you accustomed to using?  Debian derivatives, expecially Ubuntu, have a tendency to do things differently - perhaps there's a guide that could help you.01:08
SyphirXDebian but it01:08
SyphirX's been forever01:08
IdleOneSyphirX: use sudo -i for extended admin privs but please be careful01:09
walbertSyphirX: try gksudo gedit /var/log/Xorg.0.log from the Terminal (bash).  To get to bash, hit your meta key, and start typing "terminal"01:09
Xenethtucemiux_mob, The main reason I think for the extra time is because it's a script in the gnome/unity that is doing it, so that must first load.  If you enter the configurations in the network file, that may speed things up.01:09
wyldeSyphirX: or if you're in a gui you can just ctrl+alt+t to open the terminal.01:10
tucemiux_mobXeneth, you mean if I configure dhchp manually?01:10

Djeff-oHello, I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and I can't format a usb stick to ext2, ext3 or ext4 using gparted. When I do, a red icon with an exclamation mark appears. When I unplugg it and re-insert it again i get the error message: "Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail  or so"01:11
Djeff-odemesg output  http://pastebin.com/PzZnQEJP01:11
Xenethtucemiux_mob, correct.  I have never done it on a system with a GUI, so there may be some side-effects, but worth a try.01:11
wyldeDjeff-o: typically usb thumb/pen drives are foramtted fat01:11
connellyhey all, I'm pretty sure that a problem I'm having is bug #969535 and it looks like they have a fix for it in -proposed - how do I download that fix?01:11

SyphirXYou know what? I give up. I can't do it. I thought I'd give Linux a shot again but if I have to go through this again (Dealt with the same thing on OpenSUSE/Ubuntu/etc on my laptop years ago) it's not worth it. Not until Steam comes out.01:12

chsadoscan anyone help me... first time ubuntu user: installed ubuntu 12.04 onto my 2nd HDD on my computer (D:) have win7 installed on C:  i used the webui.exe to install ubuntu onto D: and when i restart i get the option to select windows or ubunty - i select ubuntu and it tells me im missing files or something.... i can get a screen shot if this isnt making any sense01:36
wyldetucemiux: it lets you use themes you can find in the repos.01:37
monvillalonchsados: I've nerves heard of webui.exe do you mean Wubi?01:37
chsadosi assume so.. its the small file you download from the website that downloads ubuntu and installs it through windows01:38
tucemiuxwylde, thanks im goign to look into it but for now im going to fix my video drivers01:38
wyldetucemiux: alrighty.01:38
Jordan_Uchsados: I would recommend that you uninstall Wubi and install Ubuntu in a normal dual boot.01:38
MauhdeebHaving a weird problem opening Windows share that wasn't present on 11.10. Keeps asking for the username and password but if I enter them it says "opening" and eventually falls back to asking again01:39

wylde+1 on Jordan_U 's recommendation.01:39
MauhdeebAnyone seen this behavior?01:39
chsadosi dont want to install it on C: bc i am going to format C and reinstall windows after i get ubuntu functional i want ubuntu on my D drive and windows on my C01:40
conkyhelpi just installed conky. im trying to use a some conky scripts (conkytransmission), but i dont see a .conkyrc file after install and reboot. does anyone know how to customize conky?01:40
Jordan_Uchsados: First, remove Wubi using Add/Remove programs from Windows.01:41
chsadosok01:41
chsadosi guess reformat D again?01:41
wyldeconkyhelp: are you enabling show hidden files?01:41
monvillalonchsados: Wubi , creates a virtual disk , its not a "real" ubuntu installation as I understand it.  Its tied to Windows because it lives inside a Windows file, its a weird thing that I don't recoment01:41

Jordan_Uchsados: Do you absolutely need to install it now, or can you wait until you have a blank CD or a flash drive?01:43

ulkeshchsados, I would suggest VirtualBox as an option as well, depending on what you're trying to do (if you're just trying out Ubuntu, it can be a good way to go if you have enough RAM)01:44
monvillalonchsados: ulkesh idea is great if you just want to try it out01:44

iHarpQuestion:   Why would opening a game. 1. Open Ubuntu Software center    2. Place me on the default screen without prompting me to download anything?02:21
nwp_So I rebooted into old 3.0 kernel and am using that at this point02:21
wyldearulmozhi: does one of the packages have aptoncd-metapackage in the name?02:21
a7i3nI'm an old geezer... I remember editing settings by hand on my first linux install on a bondi iMac...02:21
nwp_I just want networking to work with 3.2 kernel02:21

JoenI've been trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 all day. I'm not using a CD or USB stick (as I don't have any large enough unfortunately), so I mounted the downloaded .iso file with Daemon Tools. The setup said it could boot without a CD by configuring the boot or something. So when it was done, I rebooted and then I got this: "(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system"02:26
JoenI have searched on google with other people with this problem, but none of the solutions work for me.02:26
=== Garr255 is now known as Guest46290
SarahsButtJoen: where are you trying to boot linux from? are you using windows right now?02:26
JoenYes02:26
JoenWhen I reboot now, the Windows boot manager shows Ubuntu and windows02:27
iHarp" I'm not using a CD or USB stick"   then what are you using?02:27
JoenBut when I pick Ubuntu it goes through the logo screen and then shows that02:27
vectory__he used the cd, virtually02:27
JoenThe setup from the iso image said it was able to edit the boot configuration so it booted from it from boot.02:27
SarahsButtCan't you just use Wubi?02:28
yugnipjoen try plop http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanagers.html02:28
LinuxMonkeySarahsButt: nope grub2 is still on version 1.9902:28
Guest135thank you vectory__ :)02:28
vectory__Joen: the cd expects to still be there after reboot, where else would it all the files from needed for install (or did it copy a lot to disk)02:28
ki4roAny active amateur radio operators here?02:28
LinuxMonkeySarahsButt:  you must be thinking of Gimp 2.802:29
JoenSo how exactly do I use this boot manager?02:29
wylde!mini | Joen02:29
ubottuJoen: The 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/MinimalCD02:29
SarahsButtLinuxMonkey: My mistakae it seems. Thanks for the clear up.02:29
yugnipjoen plop instruction http://www.pendrivelinux.com/boot-from-usb-without-bios-support-via-plop-cd/02:30
iHarpLinuxMonkey: Any idea after what I posted up there? ^^02:30
JoenThanks, I'll try plop and then see if I have any CDs or USBs that are small enough for the small image.02:30
yugnipi believe with plop you can also use a floppy?02:31
Jordan_UJoen: I would definitely go with the minimal install image rather than trying to mess with plop (in fact I'm not sure how plop is a solution at all).02:31
LinuxMonkeyiharp thats very odd, ive never come across that02:31
JoenOk.02:31
blockywhat does it mean when booting the livecd says Can not mount /dev/loop1 on /cow02:32
Jordan_UJoen: Make sure to also remove Wubi through Add/Remove programs in Windows.02:32
JoenI don't have Wubi.02:32
Jordan_UJoen: "The setup said it could boot without a CD by configuring the boot or something." That's wubi.02:32
iHarpAnyone know why a freshly installed game would send me to ubuntu software center without prompting me to download anything?02:32
JoenBut I didn't install anything. I just mounted the iso image.02:33
iHarpGame = Savage XR02:33
wyldeJordan_U: he was attempting to install from a mounted iso.02:33
yugnipJordan_U: i must have misunderstood, i assumed the issue was unable to boot from usb02:33
Jordan_Uyugnip: No, the issue is that his USB drive is not large enough for the normal Ubuntu image.02:33
JoenActually, I am unable to find mine.02:34
JoenI can buy one tomorrow if it's necessary, but I'd just prefer to get it going to tonight without it if possible. So now I'm going to look for a CD.02:34
Guest135re my previous question anything i can run on putty to see what mode (pio, udma6 etc etc) an attached usb drive is in? id usually use hdparm for this but it's not liking working on an external hdd.02:34
wyldeJoen: for the minimal you only need 30MB :)02:34
JoenWould an external hard drive work?02:35
JoenThrough USB02:35
Jordan_UJoen: Yes.02:35
blockyhow reliable is Install ubuntu alongside widows 702:35
blockyI just clicked it thinking it would allow me to review the partitioning changes...02:35
Jordan_UJoen: It's easier to configure if the drive uses fat32. With an external drive that's large enough I would definitely go with the normal rather than minimal install image.02:36
iHarpblocky: I do it. I've had relatively no issues.02:36
blockyrelatively no :P02:36
JoenCan the filesystem of the hard drive be messed up if I use it?02:36
Jordan_UJoen: Instructions here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows02:37
JoenThanks02:37
wyldeblocky: I have no issues....but then I haven't used windows for almost a year now :)02:37
Jordan_UJoen: Not unless you select an explicit option to wipe the drive, which would be very difficult to do accidentily.02:37
iHarpblocky: Standard issues such as finding the right drivers and such, but that has notthing to do with windows02:37

oscar76iHarp: I was just wandering if 6G for swap is a little too much02:46
tohuwnapalm54: In general, using distribution-specific packages mean it has been compiled and tested on that distribution. It also often (but not always) means the package is not the latest release. Typically, you are trading bleeding-edge for tested compatibility. Examine the versions, check the project's official documentation and the distribution's provided documentation (if any), decide.02:46

kamerondr_willis, http://paste.ubuntu.com/966145/04:19
paulus68dr_willis: but no need to add sudo I presume just to be sure04:19
dr_williskameron:  you set permissions/ownership  on the mountpoint after you  mount it.. that  sets the permissions for the 'root' of the drive. OR make a directory and chown/chmod that. and let theusers access tghat dir04:19
Guest97419btw...do you suppose the outage or the update messed up the graphics?04:19
dr_willispaulus68:  rc.local  IS ran by the system.. so  its  allready  ran as root04:19
bobweavermohit:  please explain too me like I ma a 7 yr old how you are trying too do this . (sometimes I act like a 7yr old) :)04:19
kamerondr_willis, all my drives i can access just fine except for the ext4 drive mounted to "StoreSwap"04:20
dr_williskameron:  it all depoends on the filesystem in use and the ownership/modes/permissions of the drives filesystemjs04:20
Guest97419thanks bob  thanks much04:20
dr_williskameron:  the other drives are what filesystem?04:20
kamerondr_willis, ext4 and ntfs04:21
dr_willisntfs - is setable at mounttime - because it does NOT support the normal linux  permissions.04:21
dr_willisthats the only  way to set the permissions.ownership on ntfs.04:21
mohiti downloaded the iso file "ubuntu-11.04-desktop-i386.iso" burned it to a dvd successfully and am trying to boot from dvd (have set it as first preference in bios). the boot just freezes. i have done this with 4 dvds now.04:21
dr_willisfor normal linuxx filesystems you normally follow the standard permission 'rules'04:22
bobweavermohit:  where does it frezze ?04:22
kameronmohit try adding option "nomodeset" when you boot.04:22
dr_willismohit:  you  are burning a cd image to  a dvd disk: no  cd disks? why not try a usb flash:04:23
bobweavermohit: meaning .... do you get a spash screen anything or does it just go to windo z ?04:23
kamerondr_willis, i see what i did wrong. i didn't set permissions of the folder it's being mounted to. it's working now. thanks!04:23
dr_willismohit:  how did you burn it to  disk04:23
dr_williskameron:  the permissions of the 'folder' after its mounted.. is a reflection of the permissions of the root of  the drive.  BEFOr  the mount.. the permissions dont matter.04:23
kamerondr_willis, that was my problem04:24
mohitafter getting through bios.it dosnt go to windows. a "_" in the top left corner of the screen just flashes as the dvd tries hard to read. after a while, as i eject th dvd, the boot quickly jumps to windows.04:24
dr_willisi always just make a directory called 'UsersStorage' on the root of  the drive and chown/chmod  that.. the useres dont need to  see the LOST+FOUND directory :)04:25
mohiti used imgburn for one and cdburnerxp another time on a different pc04:25
bobweavermohit:  what kind of computer is this ?04:25
L3topdid you check the md5sum mohit?04:26
dr_willismohit:  id try a usb boot. and test out  those disks on a differnt pc.  Ive  heard of  mixxed results burning the cd iso  image to a blank  DVD also.,04:26
mohiti tried burning a CD as well. exactly the same result.04:26

hnszHow can I invoke a fsck?04:31
wormI used ssh to connect to another's computer, but the wall command cannot show him any information.04:31

bobweaverworm:  notify-send "this is a message about foo "04:32
hnszthat's cute :)04:32

ubottuhnsz: 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 reboot04:34

dr_willisdo you mean 'cores' ?06:23

g0rbyGood morning,  could some one help me unbrick my system? :)06:58
g0rby I was 1/2 way through a 12.04 upgrade from 11.04 It had got to the part where things were asking to be configured in a terminal and my power went down. Now when i reboot I get the error mountall: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version 'GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by /lib/libply.so.2) General error mounting filesystems. A maintainance shell will now be started06:58
foolshbeeju: also the desktop/gnome directory06:59
alankilag0rby: the command dpkg --configure -a is what you need06:59
alankilalet's hope you can get that to execute06:59
g0rbycool, but i ifconfig lists nothing06:59
g0rbyeven though i have cable connection06:59
alankilaforget about that, your first priority is to finish the upgrade07:00
beejufoolsh, I got the idea. To remove that window I need to click "three times" at top left  of it. Good idea!07:00
sasori2501hey all.  trying out 12.04. and really trying to give unity a go.  anyways, anyone know how to apply how the files in folders layout can be applied system wide??  the old way doesnt work ne more.07:01
g0rbyalankila: thx for help, when i run that it winges about read only file system07:02
alankilag0rby: okay, mount / -o remount,rw then07:02
g0rbyshould i reboot to recovery mode then try it?07:02
alankilamight also have to fsck it07:02
g0rbyalankila: it runs now but then dies "errors were encountered processing:" (lots of packages)07:03
g0rbysome pretty important ones07:04
g0rbylike module-init-tools07:04
alankilag0rby: okay, try to run it a few times, if it makes no progress, try apt-get -f install07:04
unique1guys pls i need help with my ubuntu07:04
g0rbyI see the package "mountall" which is present in the error message at boot, mabe try something with that?07:04
alankilathe downside is that it might want something from network though, but the key here is to, one way or other, identify the problematic bits and force the upgrade to finish07:04
unique1when i download files and try to install them i get errors07:05
alankilathe downloaded archives are at /var/cache/apt/archives, so you can also try dpkg -i them directly07:05
unique1or even how to run my installed files07:05
sreunique1, which files ?07:05

sasori2501anyone know how to apply how the files in folders layout can be applied system wide??  the old way doesnt work ne more.07:07
sreunique1, open a terminal and run termsaver07:07
g0rbyalankila: cool, think we are getting there with apt-get install -f lots of shizz happening07:07
unique1sre when i open terminal, which command to use to run the teamsaver?07:08
alankilag0rby: yes... alternate between these commands, then do apt-get upgrade or apt-get dist-upgrade07:08
sreunique1, termsaver07:08
alankilawith luck you will reach the finishing line of complete upgrade and after sync + reboot things should be good again07:08
sreunique1, important that the program have been installed and also located in $PATH07:08
unique1sre say i have the prog on my desktop07:09
unique1open terminal and enter cd Desktop07:09
unique1then what next?07:10

unique1i do sudo python setup.py07:12
fidel_homepage: what are you trying to do?07:12
sreunique1, wild guess is that you now have the source files in a folder located in your Desktop folder. That is not a adequate installation07:12

restingllutz: ic..ok…will look that up..thanks08:20

erik4levelsHi all, I can't run the installer nor the live cd from usb stick on my Lenovo w52008:23
fidel_repozitor: why couldnt you install it?08:23
WrigleyPeterepozitor: synaptic is not installed by default anymore, you need to install it via ubuntu software center08:23
llutzrepozitor: "both ports"? ssh/sftp has nothing to do with ftp, except parts of the name08:23
llutzresting: ^^08:23
llutzsry repozitor wrong nic08:23
repozitorfidel_: i think 12.04 by defualt should have it, no need to install08:23
erik4levelsIs there a way to run the installer from within gnome?08:23
fidel_repozitor: its pretty simple to test isnt it?08:24
ljsoftnethow do i use jstest-gtk?08:24
WrigleyPeteerik4levels: what do you mean by cannot install?08:24
restingllutz: i read that sftp is basically ftp over ssh..08:24
fidel_launch it from cli - if you end up with: command not found - its most likely not installed. if so - install it08:24
erik4levelsIt starts (I can select language etc) and then just turns blank08:24
fidel_or use apt to check if its installed or ....08:24
zykotic10repozitor: synaptic was removed in 11.10 wasn't it?08:24
llutzresting: yes, it uses ssh and also the ssh-port08:24
repozitorllutz: 10.10 have by default, i think, yes?08:24
erik4levelsIt's an optimus nvidia laptop but I disabled all optimus stuff in the bios08:25

fidel_its "chat-rubbish" which might confuse and doesnt contain any relevant info ;)08:29
repozitorfidel_:ok, i mean that in 10.10 i open my system application from menu bar, but 12.04 dosn't have this property08:29
fidel_repozitor: and whats the question now?08:30
repozitorhow to open them in 12.04? :D08:30
repozitori search in dash home, but couldn't find them08:31
MaxFrameshello08:32
fidel_repozitor: its up to you - launch them by terminal - launch them by alt+f2 - by a special launcher (i.e. Kupfer which is my personal choice)08:32
fidel_repozitor: that depends on the user & the desktop-environment -> so it might differ what you prefer based on the fact if you are using unity, gnome-shell or whatewver else08:33
fidel_consider kupfer - its a pretty good launcher (bot not installed by default either)08:33
K-4UHello eveybody. Can somebody help me with a 256 color problem in screen? I already put the config values in my .screenrc, but still no 256 colors :(08:34
foolshakhilesh: Ok you need to put this    http://paste.ubuntu.com/966431/     into the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf and restart X. please note customising the xorg.conf to accommodate a system I have no physical contact with is messing with dark powers. So the xorg.conf file I provide is minimal and should get you to 1024x768@75hz which is fairly common. If when you try this fix you do not get to the desktop or your monitor makes funny noises tur08:34
foolshn off your computer start it in safe mode and remove the xorg.conf file.08:34

akhileshfoolsh:thanks dude!!! great help..08:35
repozitorfidel_:do you use gnome-shell?08:35
zykotic10K-4U: probably depends more on the terminal you are using, but does screen actually support 256 colours?08:36

iHarpsorry for the big post09:35
foolshx_XP: You can turn off the upgrade option is config file some where its what I do for the system I sell because it makes my job easier09:35
DarwinSurvivorREK_007: avast appears to support 32 bit only on linux (according to their website). You could try another scanner such as ClamAV, or run Avast off of a 32-bit live-cd (32bit ubuntu will run fine on 64bit hardware)09:35
=== Jhs2 is now known as jsoby
DarwinSurvivoriHarp: .bin files are notorious for bypassing the package manager and messing up system files. If you ran the .bin as root (by using sudo) then it will may be *very* difficult to undo. If you ran it as a normal user, it may not be that hard09:36
REK_007well i guess I will have to do that .. i dont have a 32bit now..have a 64bit installed so wanted to know if a way was there to install 32bit one on 64bit.  anyway thanks for the help DarwinSurvivor09:37

xuserxhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/966443/09:40
DarwinSurvivoriHarp: reinstalling is probably the best bet. There is some stuff you can do using chroot's to find out what the .bin *probably* did, but you can never really be certain09:40
foolsh'rm -rf /home/xman/tmp/remaster-root/etc/resolv.conf' maybe and try again09:40
enzotibDarwinSurvivor, from texmaker (open dialog) it works, and also works from terminal: texmaker file.tex09:41
enzotibDarwinSurvivor, it is a filemanager->application interaction problem, I think09:41

DarwinSurvivorenzotib: I'm going from memory here (been a couple months since I used thunar), but you should be able to use a custom command to open a file from the file browser. Try using that and manually selecting the texmaker binary as the application you wish to use. That will tell us if the setting is simply wrong, or something else isn't working09:47

x_XPdr_willis:  thats  right i do have only few Mb left for the rest of this month09:51
dr_willisx_XP:  if bandwith is that critical - you may want to setup a 12.04 box ti work as an 'apt-cacher-ng' server to cach all the debs you download. that way they get ddownloaded once then every pc on the lan can get them from the cache09:51

DarwinSurvivorhanthana_: one of the common mistakes is installing the bootloader to a partition instead of the drives MBR.09:53
foolsh09:53

AruzsiHow can I "clone" an Ubuntu 12.04 to some other machines? I think about different UUID, MAC etc.09:55
dr_willis  .bin (self installing exeutables) are very annoying09:55
dr_willisAruzsi:  ive done it with dd befor, ;)09:55
DarwinSurvivoriHarp: absoluetly. If the author was too lazy to not create either a .deb or a compilable source .zip/.tar.gz then they were probably too lazy to make a .bin that can be trusted09:55
dr_willisx_XP:  i never upgrade. i always do clean installs.09:55
Aruzsidr_willis: Yes, some years ago ...09:55
Aruzsidr_willis: Now it doesn't work: Grub2, fstab, udev, etc ...09:56
dr_willisAruzsi:  hmm i did it via dd with 11.04 and it worked09:56
foolshI would still try setting the boot flag for the 140.97 partition before I did any thing else. I've seen grub get put in strange place by the installer before.09:56
dr_willisbut i did an exact image from a usb to  a single hd system09:57
x_XPdr_willis: thanks for that i will remember your anwser for long time now09:57
HyperbyteAruzsi, I believe you can just configure fstab to recognise a partition by label rather than uuid.09:57
Aruzsidr_willis: I tried to using rsync. I mentioned the problematic parts ...09:57
yabanizeHow do i put a boot flag on there?09:57
DarwinSurvivorAruzsi: 2 easiest ways are to either "dd" clone the entire drive (make sure drive #2 is at least as big as drive #1) or copy the system over as normal and reinstall grub09:57
dr_willisi never used rsync Aruzsi , i just did a simple install to a 8gb flash. then cloned it via dd to a few other flash drives. then a internal sata once.09:57
foolshyabanize: you'll need a third party program09:57

Aruzsidr_willis: hmmm....10:00
DarwinSurvivorAruzsi: MAC addresses are stored in the network hardware itself, when linux boots up it re-checks it anyways (if it even bothers to care what it is).10:00
dr_willisAruzsi:  you may want to check out mondo/mindi - it can setup a netboot enviroment where you 'restore' from  images on the network10:00

DarwinSurvivorI hope Naemdar realizes that both his router AND computer need to support 1Gb before the link will go above 100Mb and that it still won't make his torrents any faster10:45

DarwinSurvivorAruzsi: grub doesn't use the UUID's, it uses the (hdX,X) format, the UUID's are mostly used in /etc/fstab so the kernel knows where to mount stuff AFTER grub has passed control over to it10:50

gaelfx!enter > Aruzsi11:07
ubottuAruzsi, please see my private message11:07
DarwinSurvivorRothron: hmm, that video card should work by default (I have a GT430 which was one of its predecessors)11:07
DarwinSurvivorRothron: can you post a screenshot of your issue?11:07
JonathanEllisgaelfx: I have the google repo from when I installed google chrome. I will check which version of google-chrome I have11:07
gaelfxAruzsi: on what drive is ubuntu actually installed? or are you just using a liveusb?11:07
Aruzsigaelfx: sda11:08
gaelfxAruzsi: I mean the physical drive11:08
AkusariHello People!11:08
Aruzsigaelfx: sda is a 32GB SSD11:08
RothronDrawinSurvivor: I can take a photograph of the screen, but I don't see how that will be helpful?11:08
gaelfxAruzsi: ok, and this SSD is in the computer you're using now, right?11:09
Aruzsigaelfx: the full FS is on my external USB drive11:09
Aruzsigaelfx: Yes11:09
JonathanEllisgaelfx: I have google-chrome 18.0.1025.168 and I was already having this problem. I have added some more update settings to my software sources. I will check for more updates and see if anything offers to update.11:09
gaelfxAruzsi: what full FS?11:09
RothronDarwinSurvivor: I thought since I have the installer on an usb key, I could change it to somehow pick a different resolution & refresh. Something that my screen can sync to.11:09
AkusariI've created a bugreport today: http://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/994414 If somebody could set importance to low it would be pleased :-)11:09
Aruzsigaelfx: full FS: It was rsynced the original (16GB) SSD11:09
DarwinSurvivorRothron: I'm just having a hard time picturing what you are experiencing. Maybe you could describe it once again?11:09
ubottuLaunchpad bug 994414 in linux (Ubuntu) "SD-Card slot empty but Kernel think it's attached" [Undecided,Confirmed]11:09
gaelfxJonathanEllis:  I had a similar problem a couple days ago, but the most recent update seems to have fixed it. Could you give me a url that crashes so I can test it?11:10
Aruzsigaelfx: rsynced from the original ...11:10
DarwinSurvivorRothron: ubuntu should be auto-detecting your screen when lightdm loads (and again at login time actually). There shouldn't be any need to manually set it at all11:10
gaelfxAruzsi: ok, but you realize that rsyncing doesn't copy bit-by-bit, right? and thus that any booting information might be put in the wrong place?11:10
foolshadd1ctus: try using this one, the "trick" is to make X think it has two identical monitors. At least that's what I have to do for my setup.11:11
gaelfxAruzsi: why not just do a fresh install on the new SSD?11:11
JonathanEllisgaelfx: Its no particular url that crashes it. Sometimes it happens randomly. Usually its when I try to login to google services with multiple sign on.11:11
Aruzsigaelfx: I knew it won't boot in the very first time because no boot record on the new SSD so I "re"installed grub211:11
foolshadd1ctus: http://paste.ubuntu.com/966671/11:11
gaelfxJonathanEllis: ah, that is a scenario I can't test. The GFW generally makes things like that impossible11:11
foolshadd1ctus: sorry left out the url11:11
DarwinSurvivorRothron: did you mention something about Twinview before? If you only have 1 monitory, why are you using TwinView?11:12
Aruzsigaelfx: Because I need that machine and I don't want to reinvent the wheel from the scratch11:12
Aruzsigaelfx: and I want in a sort time more 30 machines11:12
RothronDrawinSurvivor: From the 64-bit installer iso, I created a bootable usb-key. When I stick it in and boot from it, I first see a low-resolution image of something that looks like a keyboard an equals-sign and circle with a person inside. That lasts for about a second, and then both my monitors report that the signal is out of range.11:13
Aruzsigaelfx: do you understand my base task,11:13
gaelfxAruzsi: well, clearly rsync isn't going to make this any faster if you can't get it to work on one machine11:13
Aruzsigaelfx: Why?11:13
gaelfxAruzsi: you are trying to make the install process faster by duplicating the install from one machine to 30 others, right?11:13
Aruzsigaelfx: My problem is: UUID now11:13
Dr_willisyou can set the uuid of a FS via the tune2fs command, or edit the fstab so it matches.11:14
Aruzsigaelfx: maybe will be more like NIC MAC or NIC identify11:14
DarwinSurvivorRothron: you put the iso onto the usb key (using unetbootin or similar), or *installed* ubuntu to the usb key?11:14
Aruzsigaelfx: Yes11:14
RothronDarwinSurvivor: I have two monitors. I'm currently running 11.10 but since I've done major upgrade so many times, I wanted to do a clean install.11:14
dns53Aruzsi tune2fs /dev/hdb1 -U `uuid`11:14
gaelfxAruzsi: did you see what Dr_willis said?11:14
foolshadd1ctus: Well?11:15
Dr_willisi dont recall the uuid being an issue when i cloned my installs. but i was going from a 8gb usb to a larger usb for the most part11:15
add1ctusfoolsh: replaced the config with the one you gave me, restarted lightdm, still same.11:15
RothronDarwinSurvivor: I used usb-creator-gtk11:15
Aruzsidns53: the new UUID is not the problem. The problem is: how can I tell that to GRUB?11:15
JonathanEllisgaelfx: Update manager is now installing chromium 18.0.1025.168 so hopefully that might fix it11:15
Aruzsigaelfx: about what?11:16
gaelfxJonathanEllis: probably the same update I put on a couple days ago, let me know if it works11:16
_dev0_Hi all, How can I make the screen brighter? I have a notebook lgp430 and FN Keys Of Laptop Brightness Does Not Work, any idea? I already tried this GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor splash"11:16
gaelfxAruzsi: tune2fs11:16
DarwinSurvivorRothron: does it work correctly if you only connect 1 monitor?11:16
dns53Aruzsi chroot to the partition and run update-grub and get ubuntu to update the grub config?11:16
RothronDarwinSurvivor: I'll check it out.11:16
DarwinSurvivorRothron: also, have you verified the integrity of the usb install image?11:16
Aruzsigaelfx: what can I do with tune2fs?11:17

inashdeenhi there, how do i convert an AVI format video to AMV video on ubuntu 12.04. thanks11:17
Aruzsidns53: I tiried it.11:17
dns53Aruzsi change the uuid to the old uuid?11:17
Dr_williswhats an 'amv' video?11:17
Aruzsidns53: I tried11:17
gaelfxAruzsi: match the UUID to what grub wants11:17
Dr_willisset the UUID to 000-000-000-000 for everything. ;)11:17
gaelfxor that :P11:17
foolshadd1ctus: look at your xorg.conf again and see if it add a second monitor section after a restart11:17
Aruzsigaelfx: OK. In which config file???11:17
foolshadd1ctus: if you notice mine only has the one monitor section11:18
Aruzsidns53: UUID is now the old one.11:18
inashdeenDr_willis : it is a video format11:18
gaelfxAruzsi: I think it's in /etc/default/grub, but I'm not sure11:18
NaemdarI feel totally stupid now.  The port was negotiating to 1000 half, that was screwing up the performance.  I installed the pci nic and the problem is gone.11:18
Aruzsigaelfx: I'm absolutelly sure it isn't there.11:18
Dr_willisinashdeen,  so i gathered.. but where did it come from?  cant say ive heard of AMV except for 'anime music video'11:18
add1ctusfoolsh : yep, only one monitor, display and screen section11:18
gaelfxAruzsi: maybe /etc/grub.d/grub.cfg ?11:19
Dr_willisinashdeen,  normally one uses ffmpeg, or mencoder. but  the details of what codec and otehr settngs to use is the imporntant part11:19
Aruzsigaelfx: but I check again ... I have to boot into systemrescuecd ...11:19
Dr_willisgaelfx,  i thought update-grub rescanned the uuids and set them up11:19
RothronDarwinSurvivor: It matches ubuntu-12.04-desktop-amd64.iso in http://releases.ubuntu.com/12.04/MD5SUMS11:19
gaelfxDr_willis: totally possible, but it seems he's tried that and it's still not working11:19
inashdeenDr_wilis: it is not as popular as AVI or mp4. but here is an example http://soft29.com/amv_converter.html11:19
gaelfxinashdeen: mkv ftw!11:20
Dr_willisinashdeen,  when in doubt check the ffmpeg/mencoder faqs and look for presets for winff, and avidemux, and arista11:20
foolshadd1ctus: could try setting the monitor HorizSync 31.0 - 83.0 and VertRefresh 56.0 - 76.0 to the benq values and rm ./.nvidia-settings-rc11:20
gaelfxAruzsi: sorry, /boot/grub/grub.cfg11:21
DarwinSurvivorRothron: ok, can you reboot with the USB and use the built-in checksum checker to make sure the installer didn't get corrupted while being copied to the USB drive?11:21
inashdeenDr_willis : was looking in ffmoeg. apparently ffmpeg doesnt support it11:21
Aruzsigaelfx: it is a generated file ...11:21
add1ctusfoolsh : i did set horizsync and vertrefresh, but i get "cannot remove './.nvidia-settings-rc': No such file or directory11:21
Dr_willisinashdeen,  im suprised anything supports it.. its a closed codec. but  theres some info at --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMV_video_format11:22
Aruzsigaelfx: so it will be right for just a test11:22
RothronDarwinSurvivor: I could probably, if the menu wasn't out of sync. But I'll try with a single monitor when I'm able.11:22
foolshadd1ctus: thats ok restart X11:22
Dr_willisinashdeen,  and its possible that theres some extra ffmpeg options not in the default ffmpeg that would support it.11:22
Dr_willisinashdeen,   The AMV code has been sent upstream to the main FFmpeg project[5] and the mainline version of FFmpeg now decodes and encodes AMV.11:22
RothronDarwinSurvivor: Thank you for your help.11:23
add1ctusfoolsh : changed, still same.11:23
inashdeenDr_willis : still new in ubuntu and not really happy with im seeing. :( btw, thank you11:23
Dr_willisi used the wikipedia search lense ;)11:23
DarwinSurvivorRothron: no problem. let us know how the reboot goes!11:23
Dr_willisinashdeen,  demand a refund?11:23
gaelfxsorry, my battery died11:24
inashdeenDr_willis: what does that mean?11:24
gaelfxAruzsi: did you find it?11:24
Dr_willisinashdeen,   i just used a  unity 'lens' to search wikipedia and find the info without ever leaveing unity. ;) nifty feature those lens11:24
foolshadd1ctus: The thing is, that if use mine http://paste.ubuntu.com/966642/  it should give you what I use which works great11:24
add1ctusfoolsh : so, should i put that one and restart?11:24
foolshadd1ctus: worth a shot11:25
Aruzsigaelfx: in/etc/defaul/grub not consosts of any UUID11:25
add1ctusfoolsh : used the monitor/screen/device sections from there, will restart now11:26
foolshadd1ctus: I would just dump the whole thing in there a try it verbatuim11:26
Dr_willis# Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux11:27

Dr_willis#GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true11:27
Dr_willismakes me wonder how grub sets the root if its not using UUID then,11:27
gaelfxAruzsi: did you check /boot/grub/grub.cfg?11:27
Dr_williswouldent the VPN then need to have some sort of port forwarding enabled same as if the laptop was on a 'real' network?11:28
Aruzsigaelfx: Yes!11:28
Aruzsigaelfx: there is the wrong UUID11:29
foolshadd1ctus: Well?11:29
add1ctusfoolsh: one of my monitors now shows "mode not supported"..11:29
terminalclientDr_willis all port forwarding has been done, but still can't SSH in11:29
gaelfxAruzsi: ok, so change the UUID to the one you see there11:29
Aruzsigaelfx: for a test?11:30
foolshadd1ctus: ok change VertRefresh to 60 - 75.0 instead of 60.0 - 85.011:30
add1ctusfoolsh : i think that they're both around 59 - 75 hz(not 100% sure on which one is 75hz though), and they both support 1280x1024 (at least did in windows)... is it set to those amounts in the config? (not sure if vertrefresh is the refresh rate)11:30
Aruzsigaelfx: because any kernel update will rewrite it.11:30
navajoanyone using openbox?11:30
add1ctusfoolsh : restarting now again11:30

jarcoare there standard some lenses on ubuntu?11:32
add1ctusfoolsh : still the same... one on 1280x1024 and one on 1024x768, and i still get the error message11:32
foolshadd1ctus: dang it11:32
gaelfxAruzsi: also I was saying before you should use tune2fs to change the uuid of the drive to match the one you found in /boot/grub/grub.cfg11:33

Dr_willisgaelfx,  one neat trick was if i moved the new copy pendrive to a 2nd pc.. (so one pc didenthave 2 pen drives with the same uuids) i could boot that pc. run update-grub and it would see the pendriveinstall. so IF i had any issues i could use that pc to boot the pendrive and try to fix things.12:00
RothronDarwinSurvivor: Maybe if I try VGA instead of DVI.12:00

bazhang!notunity | newer13:25
ubottunewer: 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 !classic13:25

ubottumi3: 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".

ldiamondI installed 12.04 and I'm going mad because of Unity. Would anyone please tell me how I can add a custom application shortcut to the launcher? An application with options, parameters and all...15:09
mi3ok...15:09
ikoniami3: neither really, it's a fall back mode for gnome, the base concept is around the gnome2 legacy layout, but it's still built on gnome315:09
sergiu-devi want to install ubuntu for example, but doese it have the hide-tray botton to hide all windows ?15:09
ikoniami3: don't depend on gnome-fallback though15:09

iceroot!classic | ldiamond15:11
ubottuldiamond: The default interface in Ubuntu 11.04 is !Unity. To switch back to regular !GNOME: log out, click your username, click the Session box at the bottom of the screen, and select "Ubuntu Classic". For 11.10, see !notunity15:11
iceroot!nounity | ldiamond15:11
ubottuldiamond: 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 !classic15:11
WoahImaSharkzykotic10: I tried using the nomodeset thing from a 12.04 CD, but still had the same problem as before15:11

romica<Sidewinder> I cant go on, I dont know were to se it. I found the folder name it: .libreoffice and inside is another folder name it: 3 and inside is : user and inside are many others.  I can se there is one name it: backup that is empty.  but going back in 3 there is a text doc name it: .lock and this doc contain many lines, like adresses15:16
