soreauwylde: Well I downloaded xubuntu for now. This unity fiasco is simply horrid. I don't see how canonical can stamp their name on such garbage00:00
DarwinSurvivorDX099: it's very difficult for us to debug a non-working theme if we don't know what theme isn't working!00:00
wyldesoreau: lol, I felt the same way, I firced myself to use unity, it has made a LOT of progress. It still does take some getting used to.00:00
wyldeforced*00:01
soreauwylde: Well it's upgrading now with do-release-upgrade -d. Hopefully it will JustWork00:03
wyldesoreau: only issue I ran into was reconfiguring a couple of packages on my "server" machine.00:04
soreauwylde: Oh, I configure my machines until they're almost not recognizable ubuntu installations ;) I just wanted to test an LTS->LTS upgrade and see how it pans out. My default usage is usually to always install fresh, as upgrades are problematic00:06
soreauthough I usually just tell that to people in general support00:06
DX099DarwinSurvivor, All of them, apart from Ambiance. Window themes are changing (Metacity if I'm right). But as for GTK themes and Icon themes, I can't change anything. I'm stuck to Ambiance and regular gnome icon theme. Even when trying from "Appearance" menu, Adwaita (default gnome shell) will just change its window, but the inner decoration will still remain Ambiance.00:07
wyldesoreau: I typically do fresh installs as well. I too decided to try it out this time. I only had a few minor issues, although I've heard some horror stories.00:07
soreauwylde: I assume if you don't know what you're doing, things could get messy pretty quick ;)00:07
IdleOnewylde, soreau chit chat in #ubuntu-offtopic please00:07
BrianHHey guys, anyone using Kazam for screen capture?00:08
wyldeIdleOne: alrighty </ot>00:08
soreauIdleOne: Excuse me sir, I am getting support upgrading from 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS00:08
IdleOnesoreau: all I see is you complaining about Unity (again) and talking about what you usually recommend.00:08
DarwinSurvivorDX099: sorry, but I can't think of anything else to do to resolve your issue.00:09
BrianHTrying to find out what's causing a shadow on the top when compiz effects are recorded.  This software is incredible in comparison to recordmydesktop, but I'm still getting some Compiz recording errors.00:09
DX099DarwinSurvivor, :/. Thanks anyway for trying00:09
soreauIdleOne: Please don't start with me00:09
IdleOnesoreau: ok. I won't00:10
soreauThank you.00:10
DarwinSurvivoroh, he left. I was going to suggest trying gnome's irc channel (not on freenode though) :(00:11
k1lumin4t1hey00:11
k1lumin4t1I'm on AMD Phenom II X6 4 GB RAM gear. Shoud I use 32 bits or 64 bits distro?00:11
szaldef'ly 64bit00:12
BrianHk1lumin4t1, why wouldn't you use 64bit?00:12
k1lumin4t1szal, what about packaged availability?00:12
k1lumin4t1BrianH, I dunno, that's what I'm asking... What about packages?00:12
szalunless you absolutely need something that is available for 32bit only AND doesn't play nice on 64bit00:12
pibarnask1lumin4t1: 6400:12
BrianHk1lumin4t1, it's practically the same.  Is there something in particular you don't think will run?00:13
k1lumin4t1BrianH, not a clue at the moment00:13
k1lumin4t1BrianH, I work a lot with audio apps00:14
BrianHk1lumin4t1, I have the X4 and run 64 bit, never had a problem.00:14

JynksHi guys... I wish to compleatly reinstall and replace my old ubuntu installation. I am at the liveCD graphical installer.. there is an option called "erase ubuntu 12.04 LTS and reinstall" .... I am using a duel boot into windows 7.. this option will ONLY erase the ubuntu install right? Windows7 will be left.. and will it also redo the grub launcher?00:23

avinashhmHi , i am using a 12.04 ubuntu .. i installed virtual box in this and then installed ubutu 10.04 in the virtual box .00:24
ficarra1002fishcooker:  I meant, would this computer run it well.00:24

krababbelJynks: just use the 'other' option and choose the right partition00:25
fishcookerp4 with lubuntu ficarra1002.. will be good00:25
avinashhmif i see ip in virtualbox 10.04, i can see some 10.0.x.x ; but i am not able to ping it from my 12.04 real desktop ..00:25
ActionParsnipJynks: sure, just delete the ubuntu partitions, then reinstall to the free space00:25
avinashhmany suggestions pls ?00:25
Jynkskrababbel: yeah this is what i was going to do.. but dose that re-do the grub installer you think?00:25
avinashhmlinxeh, :)00:25
krababbelJynks: it should00:25
DarwinSurvivoravinashhm: virtualbox by default NAT's everything, so the guest can connect outwards, but nothing can connect to the guest00:25
fishcookeruse host only network avinashhm00:25

xeminowell, i'm under 12.04, but in this case i doubt it matters, here is the output from apt-get http://paste.ubuntu.com/977016/00:27
szalficarra1002: to run a recent OS "well" you need, imho, at least 1, if not 2 GB RAM.. XFCE or LXDE (or some other lightweight WM, for that matter) shouldn't give you too much of a headache though.. that old integrated Intel gfx chip might raise issues though00:27
xeminoi'd like to combat those errors00:27

ubukouwylde, let me check that .. thanks a lot.. seems right. should i do mkdir $1 && mv $1 $1   ?01:02
obelusszal: To avoid having to reinstall. I accidentally did o-rx on it.01:03
mongoxtgyal: find has an --regex arg01:03
DarwinSurvivorwylde: you can't have a file and a folder and a file with the same name, so line 1 will fail01:03
wyldeDarwinSurvivor: so true, my bad01:03
xtgyalI'm not sure what that means01:03
xtgyalis that a program I need to download?01:03
ubukouwylde, DarwinSurvivor you cant ?01:04
szalxtgyal: grep is a basic system tool that should be installed on every *nix system01:04
wyldeubukou: in a file named whatever you want.sh  first line --> mkdir ./storage/$1   second line --> mv $1 $1  heh01:04
MrokiiHello. I've upgraded from 11.10 to 12.04 a few days before and wanted to try out unity for the first time today. But I noticed that the entry in the LightDM-menu is gone (the one to choose Unity with all effects). I can choose Unity 2D (without the effects) though. Is there a way to correct that?01:04
wyldelol01:04
ubukouwylde, DarwinSurvivor how about .*?01:04
DarwinSurvivorxtgyal: regex allows you to make more advanced searches using patterns: http://linux.byexamples.com/archives/73/grep-based-on-multiple-keywords/01:04
szalxtgyal: in other words, it's already there01:04
xtgyalI tried the default Find, and also tried out Desktop Search, KFind, and Catfish, all are only one keyword at a time01:05
xtgyaloh ok that's in Terminal, is there a way to do that in GUI?01:05
AlphaPinkyDarwinSurvivor, thanks using that guide I could make it work.01:05
wyldeubukou: you can prove the concept by trying it, make a folder with name a now try to make a file in the same directory named a. It will error saying a already exists01:05
DarwinSurvivorAlphaPinky: good to hear01:06
nlionhello, I'm having an issue connecting to a webdav service using the standard Go->Location menu option01:06
xtgyalhow do I select the directory I want in Terminal?01:06
dontknowanyone here knows about firewalls?01:06
nlionI can mount it with mount -t davfs01:06
DarwinSurvivor!bash | xtgyal01:06
ubottuxtgyal: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome), K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE), or Menu -> Accessories -> LXTerminal (LXDE). Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal01:06
obelusubukou: you could technically do mv $1 ${1}.temp && mkdir $1 && mv ${1}.temp $1/01:07
nlionit gives me this error: "Error: Not a WebDAV enabled sharePlease select another viewer and try again."01:07
linuxfreakerI need help on Ubuntu 11.04 for UEFI mode01:07

Jordan_Uobelus: ubukou: You should quote your variables. Join #bash for good advice on bash scripting.01:08
linuxfreakerI tried installing Ubuntu 11.04 on dell server which do have option of selecting UEFI mode..it showed me GRUB menu and then it is not displaying anything01:08
shinichihey guys, sorry for the late reply, here's the link http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2012/02/20/install-ubuntu-11-10-on-external-hard-drive-with-an-ntfs-partition-at-the-end/01:08

dontknowanyone here using firewall default deny outgoing, i have a question01:08
shinichii followed it except for the last part about the ntfs01:08
xtgyalok I used cd to get to the directory, what is the grep or regex command to search for multiple keywords?01:09
obelus!ask | dontknow01:09
ubottudontknow: 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 !patience01:09

aJynksHi, on a fresh install.. the "additional drivers" for nvidia... what is the difference between (version current [recommended] and (post release u[dates) [version current updates] .. witch of these should I use?01:09
DarwinSurvivorshinichi: ok, can you please re-state what you are doing and seeing at boot time?01:10
ubukouobelus, Jordan_U i ll have to test and read a lot before i get back to you ( not a linux genius here), thanks a lot for the ideas. you probably saved me a lot of time01:10
wyldeaJynks: recommended01:10
DarwinSurvivorxtgyal: that's in the link I posted to you01:10
ubukouDarwinSurvivor, wylde thanks a lot too :)01:10
fishcookeri've chooese recommended one aJynks01:10
smwI just installed ubuntu 12.04. What happened to autocomplete? Nothing except the very basic autocomplete works01:11
aJynkswylde / fishcooker  - ok then.. but what is the other one out of curiosity?01:11
xtgyaloh ok yeah I see it, just a sec then01:11
ubukouDarwinSurvivor, wylde Jordan_U obelus i ll get back to you all.01:11
fishcookergo for it :p01:11
shinichicompletely black, nothing happens, but when i try booting win7 it does boot up, i installed it to my external hdd so as not to mess up my main drive...01:11
shinichii mean win7 boots up.,01:11
DarwinSurvivorshinichi: do you get the grub prompt?01:11
shinichiafter booting the external? no, it's just black screen, could it be a problem with grub?01:12
fishcookerwhen i used current one before login.. there would be a splash of nvidia at glance aJynks01:12
xtgyalok, that doesn't seem to work, the examples look like that's to search within a single file, I'm trying to search multiple keywords over multiple files in a single directory with subfolders01:12
=== Resistance is now known as EvilResistance
wyldextgyal: I believe there's a gedit addon for that... I use it to find needed correction strings in all the files of the Ubuntu help documentation.01:13
DarwinSurvivorshinichi: ok, so you used the BIOS's "select harddrive" menu?01:14
shinichiyes01:14
dontknowis there a way to see actual online person number with xchat?01:14
smwWeird... when I copied /etc/skel/.* ~ --- my autocomplete started working again01:14
shinichialso tried changing the boot priority but the same thing happens01:14

xtgyalit's a collection of hundreds of stories, I'm trying to find a way to search through them using keywords, surely there is a simple program somewhere that can do Google-style searches of a large number of text files?01:15
EWBplus while it's installing a window titled "debconf" pops up and goes away repeatedly01:16
mikerextgyal: cat piped to grep (but you'd have to read the man pages)01:16
DarwinSurvivorshinichi: so the screen is black and the computer is still running. does the caps-lock key toggle the caps-lock light?01:16
xtgyalwhat is cat piped and man?01:16

aJynksGuys I have a ubuntu install and a large drive for "data" I run a duel boot so the large data drive is NTFS so windows can see it. In ubuntu the drive is working fine... "but" Is it possible to move my home dir t oa folder on this data drive... ?01:16
mikerextgyal: cat will print the contents of the file to the console01:16
DarwinSurvivormikere: why would you grep cat to grep? grep can open the files on its own!01:16
NotJimCarreytrying to upgrade ubuntu but i'm getting "Exception during pm.DoInstall():  E:Couldn't configure pre-depend libdb5.1 for libpam-modules, probably a dependency cycle." any ideas on how to fix it?01:16
DarwinSurvivormikere: why would you pip cat to grep? grep can open the files on its own!01:17

restingcan someone explain to me what this statement is trying to do? /etc/apf/apf -f >> /dev/null 2>&101:17
xtgyalI'm not sure what that means either, I'm not an expert unfortunately :-(01:17
restingits stopping the apf firewall and then?01:17
shinichiyes, and no i don't see it toggling caps lock coz i'm using a netbook, does it have to do something with that?01:18
gh0striderhello everyone, does anyone know here if there is an adobel flash player for linux using the arm processor, specifically for people who have installed linux on their android phones?01:18
gh0strider*adobe01:18
xtgyalI'll post it to Ubuntu Forums see what they come up with I guess01:18
mikereDarwinSurvivor: so can you explain to xtgyal how to use it?01:18
xtgyalI tried the grep, but that looks like searching within a single file only01:18
mjrsnyderAre there any legit Java repos for 12.04?01:19
szalgh0strider: Flash for mobile is dead, and Flash for Linux will be in the foreseeable future01:19
xtgyalwhat is the regex thing mentioned earlier?01:19
wyldextgyal: for an exapmle of piping. Let's say I wanted to send the output of cat /var/log/dmesg to pastebinit to show someone on here to get help. I would pipe 'cat /var/log/dmesg | pastebinit'   <--- pipes(or sends the output of) to pastebinit01:19
mikerextgyal: try cat * | grep "your search phrase" or something like that01:19
DarwinSurvivorxtgyal: you can search as many files as you want "grep patter file1 file2 file3 abunchoffiles*"01:19
shinichii mean there's no indicator whether i toggle caps lock in my netbook so i don't really know01:19
gh0striderszal: that may be true down the road in the future, but for now adobe flash is needed..01:19
DarwinSurvivormikere: grep "your search phrase" *01:20
xtgyalohhhh01:20
xtgyalok01:20
xtgyallemme try the star01:20
DarwinSurvivorshinichi: are there any keys that control lights (num-lock, scroll-lock, etc)?01:20
mikerextgyal: the * means all files in the directory.01:20
xtgyalyes, give me a min, I have to restart Terminal01:20
nagetierHi, i debootstraped 12.04 but the generated root account is in no group.. is this correct, did i have to change it putting root in some other groups? I am asking because i can't using nvidia-settings where a normal user can do. I became the error message "The control display is undefined" if i execute nvidia-settings as root. (sorry my broken language)01:20
DarwinSurvivorxtgyal: if you want to search in subfolders, use "grep -R" for recursive01:20
szalgh0strider: Adobe ditched Flash for mobile a year or so ago, and Flash for Linux is EOL since February or so (still getting security fixes though)01:21
xtgyalyes there are subfolders, thanks01:21
mikereDarwinSurvivor: cool, now all I have to remember is to leave cat out of it in the future (it's almost programmed into my fingers by now)01:21

CyberspaceloaaJynks: if you "man ln" without the quotes it gives you the syntax01:51
doomrobohit_, what?!01:51
CyberspaceloaaJynks: "ln [OPTION]... TARGET" is the second form01:51
shinichi_DarwinSurvivor: should i send the file to you?01:52
CyberspaceloaaJynks: the first parameter is the TARGET for the symlink, if you don't supply a LINK_NAME it will place it in the current directory with the same name as the TARGET, in my experience01:53
aJynksCyberspaceloa, ok.. i kinda read that with ln --help.. but I am not 100% understanding it... yeah but "what" is it linking? The root of the directoy you are currently in?01:53

OerHekskantlivelong, no haven't.01:59
KingKatariHey what is the format for adding something to the cron like a set of command to be run X min after the server is started01:59
CyberspaceloaaJynks: the first argument to ln is always the TARGET. With no LINK_NAME argument it will place the link in your current working directory01:59
xanguareinholder: you can keep the super/windows key pressed to show you a useful guide of key combinations02:00
reinholderoh thank christ for that I never thought I'd see the day when I'd beg for my beloved command line02:00
aJynksWhat dose it call the link?02:00
CyberspaceloaaJynks: so if you run that command in your home directory, the created link will reside in your home directory02:00

wormmdTecan: middle-clicking is one of my favorite features.02:46
TecanREK_007: can you scroll down by clicking it and moving the mouse down?02:46
vindavsolofight:  Even by that comment, I read that the image wasn't correctly done, and not a fault of yours personally.  It just the machine.  You may want to do a md5sum check first to verify that the iso image downloaded prior to burning to CD or DVD (depending on the size of it) to conserve on the amount of discs you may be using, or better yet, use a USB stick.  Can you do this for the media you want to use to perform an accurate install ?02:46
REK_007Tecan: yes02:46
Tecandamn, thats another bug i have02:47
solofightvindav: I am using an USB stick only - i am trying a usb boot02:47

lestus_windbuntu, wormd is correct, the bandwidth doesn't even compare, couple that with hdd's ability to buffer, usb will always be slower, also it's not random memory write, it has to write bits serially on the chip of usb stick and then read them serially, so access times are longer just from that02:51
wormmdwindbuntu: if it's a small distro and you have a decent amount of RAM, look into loading the entire distro into ram.02:51
solofightvindav: yes it matches d791352694374f1c478779f7f4447a3f ubuntu-12.04-desktop-i386.iso02:51
restinghow do i configure postfix to sent mails to any domains?02:51
vindavsolofight:  I just have 30seconds before I lift off.  Ok good.  Did you see the hyperlink I gave you on using md5sum properly to even check the USB drive ?02:52
windbuntuhmm well i have tons of ram, just wondered as i see some of the larger flash drives coming down in price02:52
vindavsolofight:  and the link on hashes I gave ?02:52
=== \Derek\ is now known as [Derek]
solofightvinda    yes i did a chechsum on my download and checked it with the link of hashes you gave02:53
wormmdwindbuntu: how often are you running the distro off of the drive?02:53
solofightvindav: ^^02:53
lestus_windbuntu, you as a user will never notice the difference in performance, i run full install of xubuntu from 16Gb flashdrive02:53
OptichipCan someone explain where the panel settings are saved for users?  I need to be able to setup default icons for users that login to the machine?  Anyone here that can help with this?02:53
windbuntui usually run ubuntu everyday02:53
vindavsolofight:  now it should work.  Pardon me...but what does:  ^^  mean ?02:53
wormmdwindbuntu: off of the flash drive? You should dual boot.02:54
trismOptichip: icons in the launcher?02:54
solofightvindav: earlier i didnt type your name properly so later i did and said the message is above with ^^02:54
Optichiptrism :> yes02:54
windbuntuwell my desktops is dedicated totally to ubunu and 2 of my lapptops are dual booters02:54
wormmdbsmith0931: haven't forgotten about you, sorry :)02:54
lestus_windbuntu, the only problem with that is that the flash drive's chip will eventually reach it's limit or read/write cycles and pretty much corrupt your data or die, so it's unreliable long term02:54
astrophilim having an issue watching videos. i upgraded to the newest version last night and when i go to youtube where the video is supposed to be is just black02:55
windbuntuahhh ok lestus_ not good then02:55
wormmdwindbuntu: so why are you running Ubuntu off a flash drive? Also, what lestus said.02:55
trismOptichip: use a gsettings vendor override for com.canonical.Unity.Launcher favorites02:55
vindavsolofight:  ok, you're good to go.  Gotta go...hopefully we get to chat again.   :D02:55
windbuntui never ran it off a flash just been reading about it hearing people talk about it02:55

ericPi just did a fresh install of 12.04 on an intel box. how do i find out whether the installer decided on amd64?02:55
sparc_Hey hey.  Is reprepro still the way to manage your own apt-repositories?  I was wondering if PPAs are based on that.02:56
ericPalso, is there a ppa which would give me a newer libboost than 1.46? (i need >= 1.48)02:56
windbuntui just became curious about the speed of it run that way02:56
REK_007ericP: unam -a02:56
REK_007ericP: uname -a02:56
lestus_windbuntu, your best option here, is get an empty external hard drive enclosure - 2.5" and get the SSD drive, if you are looking for performance in an external drive, problem is, to utilize just half it's writing capability you will need to use usb 3.0, and not many motherboard BIOSes  support booting from usb 3 yet02:57
ericPREK_007, is a "x86_64" kernel amd64?02:57
REK_007ericP: it shows x86_64 for amd64 ..else otherwise02:57
ericPvoila -- tx02:57
windbuntuhmm g ood point i do not have 3.002:57
REK_007yeah ericP02:57

ubukouis there a really bad syntax in this ?02:58
Optichiptrism :> Thanks, can I export the currect settings from one setup desktop and use them?  Or do I have to hand create all the links to icons?02:58
ubukoumkdir works so the mv should work ... (?)02:58
astrophilany ideas guys?02:58

hephaistosXinerama is breaking Unity in 12.04, is there a solution?02:59
ShadowFioshow do i find wheter i have an HDD or an SDD02:59
ClientAlive1649 ppl here and not one person has ever used virt manager? Not one has ever used kvm?02:59
hephaistosClientAlive, this support channel actually sucks pretty bad03:00
astrophilim just trying to figure out how to fix videos03:00
wormmdShadowFios: do you know the make and model of the drive?03:00
hephaistosNot a single person here could even help me with triple monitor issues03:00
ubukouClientAlive, hephaistos  are you serious??03:00
wormmdShadowFios: or the make and model of the computer, if it's a Dell or some such?03:00
kcjWhere are my screenshots going? I press the print screen button and it makes the camera noise and what not but I don't get the normal screenshot dialog. I'm on 12.04.03:01
JZApplesWould something like this work in 12.04 to change the orange highlight color?  https://antecblue.wordpress.com/2011/10/17/replace-the-orange-color-in-ubuntu-11-10-active-color/03:01
ubukouClientAlive, hephaistos  you have not seen unfriendly channels, be patient.03:01
wormmdbsmith0931: can you paste me the output of the command "locale"?03:02
ClientAlivewell if sucks = several days trying and not making any forward progress, not even being talked to after hours being one here, then yeah!03:02
hephaistosRight, or no-one even familiar with dual or triple monitors...03:02
ClientAliveI can't use my brand new $1800 computer - how patient? (I built it over two mos ago now)03:02
ubukouClientAlive, vs the alternative of.... ???03:02
totesmuh1oatsif i update ubuntu, what will happen to things like init scripts that i made myself?03:03
ubukouhephaistos, maybe they are but they are busy. i have dual monitors.03:03
totesmuh1oatsi mean, 10.10 - 12.0403:03
bsmith0931wormmd:  http://pastebin.com/SeC7VJvW03:03
wormmdClientAlive: you built an $1800 computer and you can't figure out kvm?03:03
trismOptichip: yes, it would probably be easiest to set up the icons like you want them and then: gsettings get com.canonical.Unity.Launcher favorites; copy the output and use that in the override file03:03
ubukouhephaistos, its not the easyiest thing dealing with xorg...03:03
hephaistosubukou well you must not use xinearama because it completely breaks unity03:03
hephaistosActually, every other DE out works perfectly with 4 or more monitors03:04
worldkeyhttp://10.10.0.12:8080/Fotos03:04
ubukouhephaistos, i dont use unity.. sorry.03:04
wormmdhephaistos: "X break Y help" is not a great description.03:04
ClientAlivefigure out? troubleshoot errors that wouldn't happen if it worked as it should? Have an intimate knowledge of a dozen technical areas as what? a prereq?03:04
astrophilanyone have any advice on videos not working with the latest upgrade?03:04
wormmdhephaistos: I think you just solved your problem: don't use Unity. I hate it anyway :)03:04
ClientAlivescrew it03:04
lurraca /join #tmux03:04
hephaistosClientAlive, Now you understand why linux sucks on the desktop03:05
ubukouhephaistos, wormmd and that is RIGHT! you need to google and take it step by step.03:05
hephaistoslol "google it"03:05
wormmdClientAlive: You're using linux.03:05
N1gg3rb8erubuntu has always worked fine for me as a desktop03:05

hephaistosUbuntu Support Channel: Have a problem? Google it!03:05
ShadowFioshow do i find whether i have an HDD or an SDD?03:05
wormmdhephaistos: None of us are getting paid to do this.03:05
N1gg3rb8erwell the problem is that Cannonical uses a nigger language word for its inspiration03:06
ubukouhephaistos, wormmd im sure if you narrow it down someone THAT has the time will help you... linux takes patience and time. dont expect everything to work out of the box man.03:06
wormmdShadowFios: do you know the make and model of the drive, or the computer if it's a Dell or HP or what not?03:06
hephaistosWorking out of the box is exactly what Ubuntu advertises.03:06
ShadowFioswormmd: i dont know the model of the drive but i know its dell03:06

wormmdShadowFios: Dell Optiplex 780 or some such other thing? You need those words and numbers to figure it out.03:07
ubukouhephaistos, do you have dual screens out of the box ?03:07
wormmdbsmith0931: sorry, I keep getting distracted, I'm looking into it now :)03:07
hephaistosI have triple screens out of the box, it's not UNHEARD OF IN THE PROFESSIONAL WORLD03:07
astrophilhi totesmuh1oats do you know anything about videos not working with the new upgrade?03:07
ubukouhephaistos, im not going to argue with you. if you think ubuntu is now worth your money take them back where you got them from.03:09
hephaistosMaybe someone needs to inform Mr. Shuttleworth to stop advertising Ubuntu as a feature complete OS ready for the Desktop03:09
bazhang!ot | hephaistos03:10
ubottuhephaistos: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!03:10
wormmdhephaistos: how many people do you know that use three monitors?03:10
hephaistosEveryone in my office.03:10
hephaistosThat's about 16 people03:10
bazhangwormmd, lets move on03:10
wormmdhephaistos: any of them use Linux?03:10
hephaistosAll of them03:10
wormmdbazhang: agreed.03:10
bazhanghephaistos, this is not the channel to rant03:10
astrophilcome on people someone has to know whats going on with my upgrade03:10

bazhangastrophil, blue video?03:11

mcdonc~/Pictures usually03:11
astrophilbazhang, - i upgraded last night and whenever i try to watch a video, the video box is black03:11
wormmdShadowFios: should be on the case somewhere, like Optiplex or Precision and then a three- or four-digit number.03:11
kcjmcdonc, Thanks.03:11
mcdoncnp03:11
JZApplesNo one else here finds the orange highlight in Ubuntu annoying?03:11
bazhangastrophil, this is flash? or what03:12
kcjI'm used to the screenshot dialog.03:12
astrophilyeah. like youtube videos03:12
astrophiland i re-installed flash as well03:12
bazhangastrophil, you have other software in there such as swf player gnash etc?03:12
astrophili dont think so03:12
XStreamXOkay I am trying to use the Cinnamon desktop when loggin into Ubuntu server 12.04 via vnc but I keep getting the gnome-classic desktop. I have tried to modify the .vnc/xstartup file without any success. Any ideas?03:13
bazhangXStreamX, try using something other than cinnamon , does that work03:14
XStreamXLIke what for instance?03:14
sirriffsalotHey guys... Is there now even a temporary fix for people having bootup-freeze problems with a nvidia card having downloaded 12.04?03:15
bazhangXStreamX, like a  supported package03:15
XStreamXCan u suggest one?03:15
XStreamXI think it has to do the the xstartup file.03:15
bazhangXStreamX, what version of ubuntu are you on to have the classic desktop03:15
ShadowFioswormmd: ATA ST9120310AS03:15
ShadowFiosis that it?03:16
astrophilhello?03:16
XStreamX12.04 but I am using server amd6403:16
XStreamXI followed this guide originally ---> http://www.havetheknowhow.com/Configure-the-server/Install-VNC.html03:16
bazhangXStreamX, so thats the gnome-panel then?03:16
csurapmy pc always goes to power save mode right after booting?03:16
bazhang!notunity | XStreamX you mean this?03:17
ubottuXStreamX you mean this?: 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 !classic03:17
csurapanyone know whats the problem?03:17
wormmdbsmith0931: this is a long shot, but does "dpkg -l | grep libc6" show that libc6 is installed?03:17
bsmith0931ii  libc6                                     2.11.1-0ubuntu7.10                              Embedded GNU C Library: Shared libraries03:17

ShadowFioswormmd: ATA ST9120310AS is the drive's model can you tell from that if it's HDD or SDD?03:18
astrophilscrew it, if no one can help just tell me03:18
wormmdShadowFios: that's not an SDD, unfortunately.03:18
ShadowFioswormmd: thx03:19
wormmdShadowFios: np.03:19
ShadowFiosastrophil: if people dont know they dont reply thinking that someone else will know03:19
bazhangastrophil, I asked if you had gnash or others installed, did you check or not03:19
astrophilyes and i said no03:19
bazhangastrophil, you said you thought not. check to make sure03:20
astrophilstupid question, but where do i look?03:20
bazhangastrophil, also, what if you download the flv, and play it with mplayer03:20
XStreamX•ubottu• I followed this guide http://www.havetheknowhow.com/Configure-the-server/Install-VNC.html and now want to change it to Cinnamon instead of gnome-classic.03:20
bazhangastrophil, in your package manager03:20
astrophili dont see any of those listed03:21
astrophilalso,i havetn tried the flv where can i get it03:21
astrophilsorry, im still kinda new to this03:21
bazhangastrophil, and my second question then03:21
wormmdbsmith0931: I was following a lead that libc6 might possibly be broken, the only way I can think to check that off the top of my head is to remove and then add that package.03:21
bsmith0931is that safe03:22
bazhangastrophil, flv is flash video03:22
wyldeXStreamX: basically, if you're choosing to use 3rd party stuffs it's up to you to get support from said 3rd party.03:22
wormmdbsmith0931: I was about to ask the channel :) It probably is.03:22
astrophilok so what do i do to get it'?03:22
bazhangastrophil, download the youtube clip, play it in mplayer.03:22
astrophilok03:23
bsmith0931to all, \can i safely remove lib6 and reinsall it03:23
wormmdbazhang: can you see any harm is something like sudo apt-get purge libc6 && sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get install libc6 to try to fix a possibly broken libc6?03:23
bazhangastrophil, there are various firefox plugins to get that03:23
wormmdbazhang: *harm in03:23
sirriffsalotNo one has any idea...?03:23
bazhangwormmd, libc6? why would messing with that ever be a good idea03:23
astrophilfound it, thanks03:24
bsmith0931bazhang: i have a locale issue03:24
XStreamX•wylde• So you are saying I should ask the maker of Cinnamon for help?03:24
bsmith0931 wormmd thought that would work03:24
bazhangbsmith0931, please describe if you will03:24
bazhangXStreamX, we hav e no idea about cinnamon. try the usual supported ubuntu packages and see if you have the same issue first03:25
=== sirriffsalot is now known as sirsitsalot
wormmdbazhang: I found a reference to a crazy edge case with a broken libc6 affecting locales.03:25
bsmith0931ben@ben-laptop:~$ locale -a | grep en_US locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory locale: Cannot set LC_COLLATE to default locale: No such file or directory en_US.utf803:25
wyldeXStreamX: basically, I'm sure there are forums and whatnot. Is it fair to expect people (99.9% volunteer's) to know everything about every 3rd party package out there?03:25
XStreamX•bazhang• which one would you recommend?03:25
wormmdbazhang: this is closer to his problem http://pastebin.com/XqB44PgL03:26
bazhangXStreamX, just choose one and try03:26
wylde!flavors | XStreamX03:26
ubottuXStreamX: !Kubuntu and !Xubuntu are simply flavors of Ubuntu that come with KDE and Xfce (respectively) installed as default, instead of GNOME. Other specialized flavors of Ubuntu include !Edubuntu, Ubuntu !Studio,  !Mythbuntu, and !Lubuntu03:26
XStreamX•wylde• no and I didn't suggest that there was03:26
wormmdbazhang: also, here's this: http://pastebin.com/SeC7VJvW03:26
bsmith0931wormmd:  thanks i lost track of those03:26
wyldeXStreamX: not being offensive, just explaining why this channel won't support 3rd party stuffs :)03:26
bazhangbsmith0931, this is on server?03:26
bsmith0931no ubuntu lucid03:27
bazhangbsmith0931, ie a server03:27
ubukoufolk i am trying to make a thunar right click option that when you use it on a file: 1st: it moves it to a temp directory 2nd: it creates a folder named after the file i moved 3rd: move the file back to the folder i created.03:27

ubukoui got this far... any ideas how to get rid of that mkdir folder and make it same as the original filename?03:28
bazhangXStreamX, of course yes03:28

javierf_Hi! for some reason, I can't leave conky sticked to my desktop. You can see a "box" around its limits and, if I use the buttom "show desktop", it will hide as any other windows. Someone has an idea why this is happening? Thanks!03:32
joseph_Everytime I boot and connect to the internet a password prompt comes up (not to connect but when it's already connected) and every time I open the browser.03:32
Floyd42joseph_: technically, yes.03:32
ubukouwormmd, basicaly take a file and place it in a folder that is named after that file.03:33
wormmdubukou: right, but for what purpose?03:33
joseph_Is there an antivirus for Linux?03:33
bsmith0931joseph_: clamav03:33
ubukouwormmd, take a bunch of files and create folders for them03:33
gunouillejoseph_, you know, some secret can't be poked like a persident's balls03:34
Floyd42joseph_: yep. clamav.  i also believe avast and avg have linux versions.03:34
ubukouwormmd, and then place them inside.03:34
wormmdubukou: and then probably populate those folders with other things later related to said files?03:34
niteshno need its so secure03:34
joseph_Hey there are like 6 different kinds of clamav, which one do I get?03:35
ubukouwormmd, maybe not sure how it will turn out03:35
ubukouwormmd, any ideas?03:36
wilee-nileejoseph_, avast and bitdefender also have linux version.03:36
trismbsmith0931: somebody is setting LANG to en_US instead of en_US.UTF-8, maybe grep for en_US in your home directory, did you add anything to ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile ?03:36
wormmdubukou: so you're just hacking to hack. I support that :)03:36
bsmith0931trism no, and no03:37
wormmdubukou: I'd have to look into those wildcards, give me a minute.03:37
bsmith0931the 12 commandment thou shall not fix what is not broken03:37
bsmith0931also careful with wildcards03:37
ubukouwormmd, you misunderstood my intention of using that command.03:37
joseph_I knew it! Give it time and Linux will be just as infected as windows. It's being used a lot so here comes the virus.03:37
bsmith0931the 11th commandment is , odf course " be excellent to each other"03:38
bazhangjoseph_, not so.03:39
bazhangjoseph_, any other support questions?03:39
niteshbye03:39
andres__hi, which is the app that make in ubuntu that the fn keys work on my Asus K53TA, I have actually Xubuntu but this not have that functionality.03:40
joseph_I asked one, but no one responded. I went to Synaptic and looked up "antivirus" and the avclam showed up but there are many of them, which one do I get?03:40
bazhangjoseph_, why would you need one03:41
joseph_I think my ubuntu has an infection03:41
LinuxMonkey!antivirus | joseph_03:41
ubottujoseph_: Antivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus03:41
gunouillesure03:41
bazhangjoseph_, what leads you to believe that03:41
ubukoujoseph_, unlikely.. unless you have been REALLY CARELESS03:42
joseph_prompts for password everytime I connect to internet and each time I open a browser.03:42
bazhangjoseph_, have you been running firefox with sudo?03:42
ubukoujoseph_, try running them via the terminal and see what happens03:42
joseph_I use crome and no its' not with sudu03:43
gunouillejoseph_, is there such a thing? my 12.04 is fine so far03:43
joseph_I'm using 10.0403:43
bazhangjoseph_, its the keyring? or your sudo password that is prompted for03:43
gunouillemy 10.04 is ok too03:43
joseph_yes the keyring03:43
gunouillei run 10.04, 11.04 and 12.04. none has this issue03:44
joseph_all the time, every time I open a browser03:44
bazhangjoseph_, then just set it to blank. thats not a virus03:44
wormmdubukou: maybe I did, I was just curious as to the point of the command. Juggling like three balls at once now, which is fewer than earlier, but still, I suck at juggling ;)03:44
terry_Any recommendations for VideoCapturing (via webcam)?03:45

ubukoujoseph_, hahaha... not trying anything bad here, im sure that command could be used for many purposes..03:45
joseph_what are you talking about? what command?03:46
joseph_btw, how do I open browser via terminal?03:46
bazhangjoseph_, why not set the keyring to blank, as I suggest03:46
ubukoujoseph_, open terminal and type "firefox"03:46
joseph_I don't know how to do that, I'm new sorry, I dont even know what a keyring is, other then an annoying password thingy03:47
ubukoujoseph_, wormmd i love how a command that i am trying to make causes so much buzz..03:47
soupeeehow do I stop getting asked for a password whenever my pc boots. 12.0403:47

GrunewaldHi there, is there a way to simply update a WUBI installed ubuntu from the outside? I updated my Ubuntu to 11.10 which killed my bluetooth drivers and now I can#t log in any more because my Keyboard and mouse aren't detected anymore. I am hoping if I update to 12.4 it might work again03:48
bazhangjoseph_, to put something in terminal? or to check in users and groups and set the keyring there; which one03:48
krishi guys, so when i type a command into terminal it works, but when i paste it into /etc/rc.local and restart, it doesn't, can anyone help with getting commands done on startup??03:48
bazhangjoseph_, open a terminal and type chrome (not crome)03:49
joseph_joseph@joseph-laptop:~$ chrome03:49
joseph_chrome: command not found03:49
ubukoujoseph_, google-chrome . Google the problem you are having. you must start understanding how linux works. if you have been using linux for 2.5 years and have these questions its very "lazy" of you :)03:50
sirsitsalotI'm trying to sudo update-grub after having modified the file a bit, but I get this message "/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: cannot find a device for / (is /dev mounted?)" running from a livecd btw03:50
joseph_soupee, I can help you with that.03:50
joseph_in the search, look for "log in screen" and you can set it to auto log in there.03:50
ubukousirsitsalot, not sure if what im saying is correct but you must reconfigure Grub.03:50
trismbsmith0931: hmm, what does your ~/.dmrc look like?03:50
sirsitsalotubottu: I just have... I just want to run the update command so it takes effect:P03:51
ubottusirsitsalot: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)03:51

joseph_ubukou, you are right, I've been lazy because my work and everything else uses Windows, I use Linux as a hobby and use different distros on my pcs here at home.03:52
sirsitsalotwormmd: really? No idea how to do that..03:52
wormmdsirsitsalot: I did it twice recently, drawing up a paste...03:52
sirsitsalotI'm having nvidia issues with the 12.04 release, as with everyone else, so wanted to make "nomodeset" when booting up permanently..03:53
sirsitsalotwormmd: fantastic:)03:53
joseph_so far, none of them bets ubuntu 10.04. It's the only version that doesn't have a lot of problems like them new ones.03:53
felipe_Brzcan anyone tell me how to get more dictionaries/word lists in **/usr/share/dict** ?? my directory is empty!!03:54
ubukouwormmd, sirsitsalot its likely that you need a simple configuration in your grub config file...03:55
ubukousirsitsalot, point it to the right direction03:55
sirsitsalotubukou: if no one is entirely sure I'll just configure it back:)03:55

bazhang!lubuntu | joseph_03:56
ubottujoseph_: lubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE instead of !GNOME as desktop environment, which makes it extremely lightweight. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu - /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.03:56
trismfelipe_Brz: apt-cache search wordlist; will list a bunch03:56

ubukoucd /directory-where-file-is-in04:00

rajand then?04:00
rajjust type the filename?04:00
itismeno04:01

sirriffsalotitisme: hang on, F6 is to select the sound card...04:03
sirriffsalotitisme: is your USB plug a sound card?:D04:03

sirriffsalotitisme: iPod?04:04
obelussirriffsalot: If it's a USB microphone, then yes, it counts as a sound card.04:04
sirriffsalotobelus: yeah; that's why I asked:)04:04
itismeno it is a microphone - http://tinyurl.com/89njkvo04:04
sirriffsalotitisme: and what would you like to do with it?04:05

sirriffsalotitisme: recording software. what are you planning to record with?:)04:05
sirriffsalotitisme: audacity?04:05
itismesome kind of desktop recorder04:05
obelusraj: ./ is required to run things in the current directory as it isn't in the path - the reason being that it's considered insecure to include the current directory in the path (imagine someone writes a malicious program and saves it as 'ls' in a directory, you go into the directory and type 'ls' and it runs their program instead of listing the file contents.04:05
itismeI have 3 installed04:05

itismei jus twant to record my desktop with audio04:07
obelusraj: No problem. Gotta rush off now though, just thought I'd pop in for a minute first. Also, you don't need ./ to run a command on a file in your current directory, so you can do 'nano myfile', but to run it, you need './myfile'04:07
obelusAnyway, I'm out guys.04:07
sirriffsalotitisme: record your desktop with a microphone?04:07

sirriffsalotdanny: now where's the fun in that;D04:46
dannyAnn-Mariya: yes but idk why u would04:46
sirriffsalotDasEi: cool, I'll look more closely when I get home. thank you ever so much for the help!:)04:46

DasEi!chroot | sirriffsalot04:48
sirriffsalotDasEi: no idea how to do the last, but I'll figure it out with the help of others in the end I suppose:) Cheers!04:48
ubottusirriffsalot: A chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot04:48
ubukouDarwinSurvivor, i have tried cd %d; mkdir folder04:48
DarwinSurvivorubukou: try "mkdir %X && mv %f %X/"04:48
sirriffsalotDasEi: cool:D04:48
Ann-Mariyadanny: That I don't know. But the fact is that u can't install win7 after installing ubuntu04:48
DasEisirriffsalot: sure , no yoda skills needed there :)04:48
DarwinSurvivorubukou: that will only work for files that have extensions though (if all of yours do, then you should be good to go)04:48
ryzzani can access my wi-fi but internet is not working on ubuntu (tried on 3 different machines - 2 different ubuntus)... any idea?04:48
sirriffsalotDasEi: to me it is hardcore yoda this04:49
ubukouDarwinSurvivor, gimme a moment to see that.. im pretty boiled here04:49
ubukouDarwinSurvivor, thanks04:49
dannyAnn-Mariya: back your stuff up install windows then isntall ubuntu either with wubi or with the reg installer04:49
DasEisirriffsalot: still aplication, not coders level04:49
sirriffsalotDasEi: well in the end it will have to be, right?04:50
sirriffsalotDasEi: ubuntu developers are working their butts off to fix these nvidia problems04:50
ryzzan???? :(04:50
Ann-Mariyadanny: When I install ubuntu after installing win7, the windows automatically wents deleted04:50
DarwinSurvivorubukou: can you post a link to thunar's docs that describe %f, %d, %n, %X, etc? it will speed this up a LOT04:50
DasEisirriffsalot: yes, I need some time now, I could give it a try in an hour or so, before I have to leave later04:50
Ann-Mariya:-(04:51
DasEisirriffsalot: another good place is forum or askubuntu.com, not as speedy as here04:51

yehello!  There is an question puzzling me:  I installed Ubuntu 12.04 following Ubuntu 10.04 on VMware , and they are in different partitions. When I power on the virtual machine, then an OS choice list occurs(called GNU GRUB 1.99-21Ubuntu3).  But I'd like to  change the list for some reason, so I looked up /boot/grub/menu.lst. however it doen't exist! Can anyone tell me where the file is? Sorry for my poor english.05:35

krababbelryzzan: no ideas, try static configuration first05:36
TonyAnybody here available to help me real quick?  Trying to get my wireless card working.05:36
grendal-primewe got buckets of help05:36
TonyI was hoping so, lol.05:36
grendal-primeits falling out my youknow what right not..05:37
TonyBasically, I just installed Ubuntu Server 12.04 and am having some issues figuring out how to set up my wireless.05:37
grendal-primei had to hire a midget to follow me around and catch it...spare time as well.05:37
ryzzankrababbel: gonna do it then... ty05:37
jribgrendal-prime: are you sure you've installed the correct package for gobject-introspection in lucid?05:37
grendal-primeeeeeewwwww i hate 1204 sorry05:37
grendal-primewell..jri05:38
TonyOk, let me back up, maybe you have a better recommendation.05:38
grendal-primethere is something called that but has -dev on it05:38
TonyIt's an OLD Belkin card, version 4100.05:38
grendal-primegobject-introspection05:38
TonyF5D70000 version 410005:39
jribgrendal-prime: well probably the way gobject05:40
jribgrendal-prime: well probably the way gobject-introspection has changed since lucid05:40
grendal-primei installed that as well ill give it a shot05:41
grendal-primenope same error05:41
jribgrendal-prime: no, I'm telling you that your version of lucid is to old to run that software as is.05:41
jribargh, it's too late.05:41
jribgrendal-prime: the program you're trying to install expects gobject-introspection that is newer than that provided in lucid (as lucid was released about 2 years ago)05:42
jribgrendal-prime: I don't remember that being the case, but that's what it seems like :?05:44

B|tchXon the vm machine ktwo05:47
ktwoB|tchX, i mean what can i do inside the OS , the parameters of the VM are not changeable05:47
ktwois there some filesystem feature i can turn off or something05:48

TonyAnybody fluent in setting up a wireless network through command line / no GUI?05:51
IngoPangm05:52
Tony??05:52
lramonhey05:52
wookiehkhi, can anyone tell me the difference between the scripts in /etc/init.d and /etc/init?05:53
TonyPlease PM me if you think you can help me with a basic wireless setup...05:53
TonyThrough GUI, no X server.05:53
lramondoes any body know a blueray burner that works with linux05:54
wookiehkTony, CLI or GUI?05:54
Terminus_wookiehk: /etc/init.d contains sys v init scripts. /etc/init contains upstart init scripts.05:54
TonyCLI05:54
ktwolramon,  for burning i dont see why there should be issues05:55
wookiehkTerminus_, so sys v scriopts are only run when called, where upstart scripts run on boot up?05:55
wookiehkTony, are you trying to connect to an AP?05:55
lramoni've looked but can't find a blueray burner that works with linux05:55
Terminus_wookiehk: no. sys v init scripts is the old method of starting services on bootup. ubuntu shifted to upstart in order to have an event triggered startup system instead. not everything has been migrated from sys v init to upstart yet.05:57
ktwolramon,  whare are you looking? basically br burning works like dvd burning , if the software supports it you're fine05:57
ktwobut you can not view dhcp bluray of course05:57
ktwoi mean hdcp05:57
atdiehmI am on 12.04, and I have an external NAS which exports smb shares… from the mac, I can just browse to it, and operate on it fine.. from 12.04 I bookmarked it through the 'places' GUI… but every read/write attempt errors the first try, but then usually works the second… any idea what I may have needed to do differently?05:57
ktwolramon, worst-case coming, you can still use a windows VM inside of linux  to burn them, but if im not wrong brasero can do it05:58
lramoni mean a blueray player model like a sony or something05:58
Qualiais it worth upgrading to 12.04 ?06:00
DarwinSurvivorlramon: do you just want to dump files on it, copy a blu-ray or create a blu-ray movie?06:00
lramonto be honest we were trying to data dump it to copy a ps3 game i heard that it is possible06:01
grendal-primei say..give peace a chance...and if that doesnt work get out of the way so the motivated people with balls can do what they were trained to do.!!06:01
grendal-primenight all06:02
DarwinSurvivorlramon: PS3 games probably have a bunch of copy protection on them, so it may not work06:02
lramonThe data dump copies every thing even the encryption so it should work were trying to do it.06:04
Qualiais it worth upgrading to 12.04 ?06:05
wookiehkTerminus_, ok so anything in /etc/init.d wont start and ill have to port them across to /etc/init ?06:05
Qualiaam i asking a stupid question ?06:06
QualiaQualia, yes.06:06
ktwoQualia, well think about it yourself, of course upgrades generally are a good thing06:06
ktwobut if you cant risk to lose time if something goes wrong06:06
ktwothen you come back to "never touch a running system"06:07
Qualiai can, i want more problems06:07
wylde!opinion | Qualia06:07
ubottuQualia: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.06:07
Qualiasolving problems is a good way of learning the system and i need to know more and more06:07
Guido1hello, when i start ubuntu it finds some errors, but i can't see the comandos like I for ignore. what are the comandos?06:07
Qualiaso instead of asking you i need to go research now06:07
aeon-ltdwut?06:08
Qualiaand stop being a hypocrite06:08
DarwinSurvivorlramon: have you heard of dd?06:08
darkhalo117Anybody know why DRM drivers might be causing my video not to display?06:08
allu2Qualia: more problems? try adding debian experimental and sid repos to your ubuntu's /etc/apt/sources.list , then do apt-get dist-upgrade and it should guranteen you problems :P06:09
Terminus_wookiehk: no. scripts in /etc/init.d will still start. things are complicated a bit by the fact that insserv is used as a hack to decide how services are started from /etc/init.d/. in any case, scripts that have been ported to upstart are replaced with a script that starts/stops the service the upstart way.06:09
aeon-ltdQualia: how much do you want to learn? if you've got time i'd suggest starting with a server/cli install then building from there06:09
chilibluehow can I adjust the geometry of my desktop, it is overscanned on my hdtv, nvidia driver?06:09
lramonyes I'm in a network security class at a tech school and we discussed a little on dd and it was said that you can copy ps3 and xbox 360 games without a mod06:10
itismewhat dose "checkinstall" do wehn doing an - - -  apt-get install <ApplicationName> checkinstall - - - ?06:10
aeon-ltdlramon: how do you intend to copy ps3 games without a bd-rw? cause they ain't cheap06:11
Terminus_wookiehk: are you trying to write an init script? if you don't care about distros besides ubuntu, you can just write an upstart script and be done with it.06:11
allu2Qualia: though i must warn you, you wont get support anywhere if you do that :P06:11
Guido1hello, when i start ubuntu it finds some errors, but i can't see the comandos like I for ignore. what are the comandos?06:11
shani0610Hello guys, I have this problem mounting my harddrive: I get this error all the time mounting -Daemon is inhibited06:11
aeon-ltdGuido1: i'm still not getting you06:11
DarwinSurvivorlramon: then try dd, if that doesn't work, chances are you won't be able to get it to (not a until a VERY smart person comes up with a solution)06:11
ktwolramon, you cant even copy x360 games to work like the original ones because of plain hardware limitations06:11
Qualiaallu2, No worries :)06:11
aeon-ltdGuido1: different applications will have different commands06:11
ktwothe original ones have areas written which NO burner can write06:11
Qualiaallu2, and thank you06:11
Guido1aeon-ltd: if you start ubuntu then it cheks for errors on the hard disk06:11
DarwinSurvivor!tab | lramon06:12
ubottulramon: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.06:12
lramonyea thats why i first asked what blueray burner was compat for the linux06:12
DarwinSurvivor!who | lramon06:12
aeon-ltdGuido1: you mean fsck?06:12
ubottulramon: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)06:12
allu2Qualia: don't thank me and really, consider what your doing that will really break your system :S06:12
Guido1aeon-ltd: it's the automatic chek. if it is fsck, then yes06:12
allu2Qualia: backups at least!06:12
aeon-ltdGuido1: you mean you want to skip it?06:12
DarwinSurvivorlramon: oh, you want *hardware*. my old laptop had a blu-ray *reader*, but it wasn't a burner06:13
Guido1aeon-ltd: i want to know the comments for it like "repair", "ignore error", ...06:13
aeon-ltdGuido1: that will be in the man pages for fsck06:14
aeon-ltdGuido1: 'man fsck' at a terminal06:14
Guido1aeon-ltd: in the screen witch shows up i can't see the comments :-(06:15
DarwinSurvivorlramon: well, it *looks* like linux support blu-ray burners (they appear to be standardized), but of course I can't guarantee anything06:15
Guido1aeon-ltd: with other computers i can, but they have no problems in the moment06:15
lramonthanks to all of you for the info i'll check with you later kind of late here06:15
wookiehkTerminus_, i have init.d scripts thaat dont seem to load at boot time, wondering if i make an upstart job whether having both of them in two diff locations is a bad thing!06:16
Terminus_wookiehk: use either sysv or upstart. don't use both at the same time.06:16
aeon-ltdGuido1: i'm still unclear, if you could get a screenshot and show the people in this channel they may be able to help06:17
wookiehkTerminus_, ok thanks06:17
Guido1aeon-ltd: i'm not sure if i can make a screenshot - it is bevore i enter my password06:18
Terminus_wookiehk: if you placed them in init.d manually, you'll have to run update-rc.d to actually get them working. putting them in init.d isn't enough.06:18
wookiehkTerminus_, true, thanks for the reminder. I think ill write the upstart ones and del the init.d ones06:18
aeon-ltdGuido1: do you remember anything else from the screen?06:18
fidel_ahoi06:18
Guido1aeon-ltd: a bit. at first it sayes it is cheking for errord and a percentage06:19
Guido1aeon-ltd: then it finds an error and stops06:19
aeon-ltdGuido1: what are you trying to achieve with this?06:19
Guido1aeon-ltd: normaly it askes what i want to do - do i want to ignore it or repair it etc. and which key i have to pres06:20
aeon-ltdGuido1: but it gives nothing?06:21
Guido1aeon-ltd: but by this computer not al the tekst is shown up - only the question "what do yoiu want to do?", but not the commants06:21
Mrokiihello. I think the LDM menu is kind of messed up (where it shows me which GUI I want to start). It doesn't show me "Ubuntu" (with Unity) as an option, only "Ubuntu 2D". But if I start that, the launcher-bar on the left appears and compiz seems to be activated. Plus when I click on the Ubuntu-Icon in the launcher bar, nothing happens (no overlay-window opens where I should be able to type something in).06:21
Guido1aeon-ltd: so i don't know which butten i have to pres. i only remember "i" for "ignore", but i want to repair it06:22
darkhalo117Any way I can boot to a live cd and disable DRM drivers?06:22
aeon-ltdGuido1: i have no idea, but if it's not pausing or waiting then it's probably not going to recieve the command (it's worth a shot though)06:23
Guido1but what is the command i have to enter?06:24
murlidharhi all while doing apt-get update i get ppa GPG authentication errors ... how can i fix them ?06:25
Guido1aeon-ltd: but what is the command i have to enter?06:25
Guido1aeon-ltd: witch letter06:26
aeon-ltdGuido1: i don't know, logically i'd guess 'r' for repair06:26
Guido1aeon-ltd: sadly not06:27

SatishHello All, Whenever any wifi AP comes in range, Ubuntu shows a pop-up message for notifying this. How ubuntu knows that, AP is in range ?06:30
nastasGuido1: did you try to press C to skip disk checking?06:30
fidel_Satish: if it wouldnt you could never join a network in the first place or am i wrong? ;)06:30
Guido1nastas: no06:30
Satishfidel_, yes. I am more interested to know, how ubuntu deal with it06:31
tarelerulzThe big gui / layout change is the only bad thing about Ubuntu 12.04.    That its just mean it take more time to get use to things.   sound / mic  just is nice06:32
Guido1i wil try soimething06:32
Satishfidel_, I mean, is there any script/daemon running in background. which comes into life as soon as WIFI AP cames in range06:32
nastasGuido1: is ubuntu allow you to press any other key?06:33
fidel_Satish: not sure - as i am not really using wifi that much. i would assume it is reletated with the network-manager you might use06:34
fidel_but thats just a wild guess06:34
SatishIs there any way to autoconnect to wifi, if there is any [ with pre-defined credentials ] ? If wifi is absent, then system must stick with ethernet or data card06:35
Satishfidel_, network-manager do the trick. But I want the command line option plus logic/flow behind this06:35
fidel_Satish: well my laptop autoconnects to its known wireless networks06:35
fidel_in case you use keyring or similar it will get the credentials from there06:36
fidel_k06:36
MrokiiOkay, I've narrowed my problem down (with the Unity-Desktop). As soon as I start compiz, the launcher-icon (the Ubuntu-Symbol) doesn't open any overlay-window anymore. If compiz isn't running, the overlay window can be seen.06:37

DarwinSurvivoralbech: was it a regular update, or the 11.10=>12.04 upgrade?07:06
owhSalutations. I am looking for help with grep. I can use a file with patterns to search another file like this grep -f pattern.txt mydata.txt, how do I find out which patterns do not exist in mydata.txt?07:06
DasEimurlidhar: sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys C2518248EEA1488607:06
albechDarwinSurvivor, it was a clean install right after release.. the update, was just regular updates07:06
DarwinSurvivormurlidhar: please disable all PPA's and try again.07:06
Felins coolHey guys, having an issue with my controller, a standard Mixtrack. I'm running Mixxx 1.10 and the latest BodhiLinux (Ubuntu based). My issue is that while amidi -l shows the Mixtrack Mixxx continues to show No Midi Devices Available in the controller pane.07:07
caihongminhi07:07
DarwinSurvivoralbech: ok, can you reboot and at the grub menu chose "memtest"? unstable systems are often caused by a ram stick starting to die and is very easy to test for07:07

albechDarwinSurvivor, i am on my 11.10 installation now, which works perfectly.. they are installed on two separate partitions07:07
DasEimurlidhar: did the keyserver had itt ? else either disable that ppa or go to launchpad to find out where that key is stored07:08
DarwinSurvivoralbech: you have both versions installed as dual boot?07:08
albechDarwinSurvivor, i can do that, but as i said my system has been rock solid on 11.10 for a long time07:08

DasEithe-newsman: hdX=IDE  sdX=sata07:14
the-newsmanDasEi sda is spefi for ssi drives which i do not have. why did ubuntu see my drivers as scsi ?07:14
BrianNieI installed ubuntu 12.04. I can not use 3D interface, just can use 2D interface. Anyone can tell me why?07:14
the-newsmanDasEi do u mean my drivers r sata and not scsi ?07:15
DarwinSurvivorthe-newsman: almost every linux distro uses sdX for ata/sata drives07:15
DasEithe-newsman: prbly wrong bios setting if sata seen as scsi07:15
the-newsmanthanx guys07:15
DasEithe-newsman: what does sudo fdisk -l   tell about devicenames ?07:16
the-newsmanactually i am runnign ubuntu on VM07:16
DasEisdX ? all fine, sata , the-newsman07:16
DarwinSurvivorthe-newsman: how can you have "real ata" in a vm?!?07:16
DarwinSurvivoralbech: are those dmesg.log and syslog from the /var/log partitions?07:17
the-newsmanDarwinSurvivor i did not choose the type of the drives in VM07:17
the-newsmanit was automatially selected07:17
albechDarwinSurvivor, correct.. the syslog is only the last bit of it.. was too big for pastebin07:17
linuxuz3rwhats up man07:17
DarwinSurvivorthe-newsman: you stated (and I quote): i am using real ATA drives07:17
DasEialbech: do you run from live or the issued system ?07:18
DarwinSurvivoralbech: ok07:18
BrianNieDoes anybody faced 3D login problem? I need help.thanks07:18
DarwinSurvivor!details | BrianNie07:18
ubottuBrianNie: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."07:18
albechDasEi, i run from my stable 11.10 system partition07:18
the-newsmanDarwinSurvivor that what i belived in. my drive is ata. 1 terra bytes. the host is win 7 and the guest is ubuntu07:18
albechDasEi, the issued system crashes too often to troubleshoot from07:19
DarwinSurvivoralbech: are both the 11.10 and 12.04 installations the same architecture?07:19
DasEialbech: sudo apt-get install pastebinit && pastebinit /var/log/syslog07:19
albechDarwinSurvivor, yes07:19
DarwinSurvivoralbech: 64 or 32?07:19
DasEishall give url for here, albech07:19
DasEiah, I see, so got you wrong, albech07:19
TransistoRepeat : What's the best way to increase parition size ?  I have some problem with gParted07:19
albechDasEi, cant do that from this system07:19
TransistoWhat's the best way to increase parition size ?  I have some problem with gParted07:20
DarwinSurvivorthe-newsman: then only windows would see the ata drives, ubuntu has no CLUE what actual hardware you are using, it only sees what the vm "emulates"07:20
albechDarwinSurvivor, 64bit07:20
linuxuz3rcan gparted increase partition size07:20
DasEiTransisto: was the drive unmounted (live-system?) else gparted can't work07:20
Jordan_Ulinuxuz3r: 1: Why are you trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 rather than 12.04? 2: Why are you trying to install as UEFI rather than using your firmware's BIOS implementation?07:20
DasEiTransisto: and don't forget to alter fstab accordingly07:20
BrianNieI used ubuntu 12.04. If I login use 3D, then there is nothing appears except the background. And if I use 2D login, I can access the desktop. My computer is dell inspiron 152607:21
DasEi!blkid07:21
ubottuTo see a list of your devices/partitions and their corresponding UUID's, run this command in a !shell: « sudo blkid » (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibAtaForAtaDisks for the rationale behind the transition to UUID)07:21
TransistoThank you DasEi, I'll have to do it from elsewhere (CD)07:21
DasEi!fstab07:21
ubottuThe /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions07:21
albechone interesting observation when the system do crash is that capslock and scroll lock starts blinking on the keyboard07:21
DarwinSurvivoralbech: you can "pastebinit /media/other_drive/var/log/..."07:21
Jordan_Ualbech: That signifies a kernel panic.07:21
DarwinSurvivoralbech: if the caps-lock key is blinking that is a kernel crash!07:21
albechDarwinSurvivor, shouldnt there be something in the kern log then?07:22
DarwinSurvivoralbech: did you use a usb or cd for the install?07:22
DasEialbech: right, mount the issued partition, then pastebinit that log(s)07:22
albechDarwinSurvivor, CD07:22
=== robert_ is now known as Guest16310
DasEiTransisto: I use usb-installs mostly for such07:22
DarwinSurvivoralbech: can you boot off the cd and run the "check disk for errors" option. feel free to use another computer if you have one07:22
DasEiTransisto: or right away gparted live cd07:23
DasEi.. on usb07:23
DarwinSurvivoralbech: the *may* be something in the kernel log, but only if the kernel was able to write one before boing belly-up07:23
TransistoDasEi : Fstab, that is, even if the partition stay at the same order ?07:23
DasEiTransisto: yes, if you  resize, uuid's change, see above given links07:24
linuxuz3rBrianNie, there might be something wrong with your gnome configuration files07:24
ptmanhi! I'm having problems with nvidia drivers on lucid07:24
linuxuz3rwhat desktop manager are you using?07:24

DasEi!blkid > Transisto07:24
ptmanit's a newer card, so I had to install nvidia-current from ubuntu-swat-x ppa07:24
albechDarwinSurvivor, dmesg: http://paste.ubuntu.com/977423/07:24
linuxuz3rBrianNie, are you using gnome or kde or something else07:25
ptmanbut nouveau is loading even though it is blacklisted, and so the nvidia binary driver doesn't end up in use07:25
albechDarwinSurvivor, kern.log: http://paste.ubuntu.com/977424/07:25
BrianNieI use gnome07:25
linuxuz3rBrianNie, what do you mean by 3d?07:26
linuxuz3rand what happens when you login?07:26
DarwinSurvivoralbech: I'm seeing 3 errors relating to sda2 in that syslog07:26
albechDarwinSurvivor, will have to reboot this machine to test the cd on.. only 64bit arch machine i have here07:26
BrianNieWhen I login , there is the interface selection: 2d or 3d.07:26
snapdataI'm running Ubuntu 12.04. On Windows my dedicated sound card (Xonar DX) had the "Wave out" and "Stereo mix" options that allow you to broadcast the audio being process by your sound card (ie. what comes out of your speakers) as a microphone output. I've been googling for a while and all I've figured out is how to record it with Audacity, which isn't really what I need. Does anyone have any tips/ideas?07:27
DarwinSurvivoralbech: you don't need a 64 bit machine to run the check I don't think07:27
linuxuz3rok07:27
linuxuz3rand you use gnome07:27
snapdataI'd greatly appreciate any input. Thank you.07:27
BrianNieif i chose 3d, then nothing can appear07:27
DarwinSurvivoralbech: can you run "sudo fsck /dev/sda2"? You'll need to unmount it first07:27
BrianNieI can just use 2d, then I can access the desktop07:27
linuxuz3rBrianNie, try this create a new user when you log in 2d then log on to 3d with the new user account07:28
the-newsmanDarwinSurvivor how to know the storage names ?07:28
BrianNieok. let me try07:28
=== Phaiax_ is now known as Phaiax
albechDarwinSurvivor, /dev/sda2: clean, 262481/3662848 files, 1646227/14649271 blocks07:28
DarwinSurvivorthe-newsman: how do *I* know them, or how can *you* find them?07:29
DarwinSurvivoralbech: hmm, ok07:29
the-newsmani do not think there is differene between knowing and finding. however lets say find them07:29
albechDarwinSurvivor, i see those ext4 orphans errors in the syslog.07:30
DarwinSurvivorthe-newsman: usually the easiest way to list all connected hard-drives is "ls /dev/hd* /dev/sd*"07:30
DasEithe-newsman: see above, sudo fdisk -l07:30
the-newsmanDasEi it worked fine. it showed i am using sd*07:31
DarwinSurvivoralbech: how old is the hdd?07:31
the-newsmanbut i dunno if there is other drives.07:31
DasEithe-newsman: so can draw back troops again ;)07:31
albechDarwinSurvivor, hmm im not really sure.. id guess 2-3 years07:32
DasEithe-newsman: vbox ?07:32
the-newsmanVMWARE07:32
DarwinSurvivoralbech: ok07:32
albechDarwinSurvivor, they in a raid007:32
DasEithe-newsman: either way, by default one cd and one hd, floppy sometimes, but you set that in the -not running- vm07:33
DarwinSurvivoralbech: wait, you have a raid?!?07:33
albechDarwinSurvivor, yes, there is a raid0 configured in the bios07:33
DarwinSurvivoralbech: future reference: having a raid array is an *important* thing to mention!07:33
albechDarwinSurvivor, sorrr07:33
albechDarwinSurvivor, sorry07:33
DasEithe-newsman: install gnome-device-manager for a non-tech-gui or install hwinfo and run as root to get grey hairs :)07:34
the-newsmanDasEi can i redue the parition size without losing the installed file ?07:34
DarwinSurvivoralbech: ok, so is sda2 a real partition, or the raided combination of 2 other partitions/hdds?07:34
DasEithe-newsman: I don't understand .. you want to decrease the virtual hd ?07:34
albechDarwinSurvivor, every second installation of ubuntu have been running on that partition with no problems.. i always have a production system running and then the next one in line..07:34
the-newsmani want to split the allocated harddisk size which is 20 g to 15 and 5 drives07:35
=== totesmuh1oats is now known as totesmuhgoats
albechDarwinSurvivor, its a raid0 partition so its running on one partition.07:35
DarwinSurvivorplease create a pastebin with a list of each drive's partitions and which ones are paired up which ones in the raid07:35
albechDarwinSurvivor, its not a software raid within ubuntu..07:36
DarwinSurvivoralbech: you do know that if either drive in a raid0 dies, you lose EVERYTHING right?07:36
albechDarwinSurvivor, sorry.. its a raid107:36
DasEithe-newsman: df -h in your vm shows you usage of current virtual hd, if that is enough, close machine and use the tools provided by vmware (read their faq's, seek for support there), yes for sure possible07:36
DarwinSurvivoralbech: ok, so you have 2 hdd's raided in raid0 at the bios level that appear as only sda to ubuntu. that raided virtual drive is then split into multiple partitions. is that correct?07:37
albechDarwinSurvivor, replicated data on 2 disks07:37
albechDarwinSurvivor, correct07:37
cocolosis there a way of setting the watchdog timer to a longer delay?07:37
albechDarwinSurvivor, except its raid1 and not raid007:37
DarwinSurvivoralbech: ok07:37
albechDarwinSurvivor, confused the two07:37
DasEithe-newsman: if it's (and from your questions I assume so) it's a fresh install, reinstall might be less of hassle07:38
DarwinSurvivoralbech: does your bios support smart-checking each drive individually? If one is starting to fail and the bios isn't handling it properly, it could be causing problems if those sectors happen to be where the other ubuntu installation is07:38
albechDarwinSurvivor, im bot sure if it supports that07:38
albechDarwinSurvivor, i can check07:38
the-newsmanDasEi but i think dividing the harddisk as 2 partitions is something inside the linux itself and not related to the vmware. yes ?07:39
DarwinSurvivoralbech: that would be a good idea. since you are using hardware-raid, there is no way for ubuntu to check the stability of the drives unless it supports the hardware raid's error-report interface07:39
alkisgHi, grub in 12.04 won't work for me (it worked in 10.04), is there another boot loader I could use?07:40

alkisgappi_uppi: I can netboot the client with the same parameters that grub uses locally07:42
mobius420I edited my hosts file to bind the webserver to it's LAN ip07:42
alkisgIs LILO still in a working state?07:43
mobius420now I can see my website's front page but if I try to view the forums it appears all broken or will not load at all07:43
the-newsmanDasEi07:43
the-newsmanDasEi but i think dividing the harddisk as 2 partitions is something inside the linux itself and not related to the vmware. yes ?07:43
DasEithe-newsman: lil more complicated, first need a live(virtualized) system to acces the virtual hd, then afterwards use vmw  to do the actual splitting, see my tip above07:45
BrianNieHi, I tried add a new user. But the problem is same.07:45
DasEi1) partitoning/resizing  2) splitting07:45
DasEithe-newsman: if it's (and from your questions I assume so) it's a fresh install, reinstall might be less of hassle07:46
the-newsmanDasEi yes fresh installation however i am doing that to just pratice. it seems i asked hard mission not for a beginner07:46

HowDoIHi, my brand new Ubuntu install has frequent hard lockups with Ivy Bridge Intel i5-3570 using the built-in HD4000 graphics. I can't find any information on this issue...08:09

SuSEno:_D08:09
sirriffsalotHowDoI: are you pressing alt+tab when it happens?08:09
manny550ok08:09
HowDoINo, I'm just viewing webpages or a music app when it happens.  Even active SSH connections time out when the crash occurs08:10
sirriffsalotHowDoI: well, 12.04 is a pretty recent release, so. I suggest you run everything in terminals and check if any error messages pop up, try to pay attention to what you do just before it happens08:10
omeDoes ubuntu come with a preinstalled alternative to sysv-rc-conf or sysvconfig ?08:11
sirriffsalotHowDoI: if it turns out to be seemingly random, contact someone through a bug report for in-depth investigation08:11
sirriffsalotHowDoI: or ubuntuforums :)08:11
manny550ok08:11
manny550so now that I'm official I can ask my question lol08:11
HowDoIsirriffsalot, it almost always happens when, for example, viewing spinning Internet space ships at this site:  http://www.eveonline.com/universe/spaceships/08:11
DarwinSurvivorHowDoI: I'd also *highly* recommend running the "check this disk for defects" option when booting from the cd or usb you used to install. that will tell you if your install media was corrupted08:11
sirriffsalotHowDoI: are you sure your hardware is meant to handle it?:D08:12
sirriffsalotHowDoI: yeah, should have mentioned that too lol. If it isn't a problem, do a reinstall with a new install usb/CD08:12
sirriffsalotHowDoI: as for the spaceships, my sucky computer with nvidia running on a livecd handles it fine08:13
HowDoIsirriffsalot, This same problem happened with fresh install from USB stick and with upgrade from 10.04 via system-update08:13
sirriffsalotHowDoI: is there any sincere need for "the latest"?;)08:14
manny550So uh my friend caught something fierce in his Windows laptop and it won't startup so I figured of installing Ubuntu onto my External Hard drive to mount his hard disk and extract his files that he needs however Ubuntu did not install onto my External Hard Drive correctly even through correct methods so now I need to delete the stuff that Ubuntu created on my External so I can return it back to normal but in order to do that I need to log08:14
manny550in as the Root User, can anyone help me with this?08:14
ikoniamanny550: you don't need to login as the root user08:14
manny550ikonia: how do I get around this?08:15
DarwinSurvivormanny550: why not just use the live-cd to perform the recovery and dump everything ONTO the external harddrive?08:15
HowDoIsirriffsalot, "the latest" is the hardware I own.  The only other option is an Nvidia 8400GS, which has a completely different set of bugs08:15
sirriffsalotHowDoI: if not, install one ubuntu with something you know will work, and another with the 12.04 that is causing trouble, and while you run freely on your 11.10 or whatever it is before 12.04, you can in a relaxed manner figure out what's up with 12.04:P08:15
ikoniamanny550: what is your end goal? what do you want to do ?08:15
sirriffsalotHowDoI: I meant software-wise:)08:15
sirriffsalotHowDoI: If there is no real need for 12.04 I suggest the above, makes things so much easier when you have in-depth-no-crash-please work to do08:16
manny550ikonia: my end goal to one return my External back to normal and two Get the things out of my friends laptop that he needs but first his laptop doesn't run recovery that's why I went to this drastic measure. I don't know what he did but he caught something fierce of a virus08:16
ikoniamanny550: ok, so do you want help recovering his files ?08:17
sirriffsalotHowDoI: however, if you've never had dual-boot options done in the past, that could present other problems. If so, just go with a 11.10 until some time has passed for the most important 12.04 updates have arrived08:17
manny550ikonia: I want help with that and returning my external hard drive back to normal08:17
HowDoIsirriffsalot, The only other acceptable option to is to go back to 10.04, which now doesn't boot after installing 12.04 to another drive08:17
ikoniamanny550: back to normal ? what's not normal about it ?08:17
sirriffsalotHowDoI: have you never partitioned a hard disk before?:)08:17
DarwinSurvivormanny550: the install cd is also a live-cd that is VERY useful for recovering data. just boot your friends computer with the live-cd, then plug in the external HDD and copy his files over08:18
HowDoIsirriffsalot, I've partitioned disks before.  I installed 12.04 on a brand new SSD which I've tested for errors.  The old HDD with Lucid on it no longer boots08:18
mobius420does anyone know how to enable NAT loopback on a q1000z  ADSL router?08:18
mobius420I am starting to think it is not even possibler08:18
sirriffsalotHowDoI: do some reinstalls and get one functional and one "unsure" install going, is the bottom line here I think while you wait for some of the core updates08:19
manny550ikonia: give me a second to test something08:19
HowDoIsirriffsalot, I'd much rather get 12.04 working on my current hardware, but it crashes so hard that I can't get any error messages from it to report bugs08:19

ikoniaBetrug: tone down the language please.08:21
manny550ikonia: ok so heres the part where I explain my stupidity cause you're right and I could have used the boot cd as a live cd but that didn't occur to me until after I messed up my external.

manny550ikonia: my movies and anime but I backed that up somewhere else so I'm not worried about that plus I think it got erased when I tried installing Ubuntu on it08:24
manny550ikonia: so far the only thing the External has is the botched Ubuntu OS08:24
BrianNieAnd there is still nothing I can do08:24
snapdataI'm running Ubuntu 12.04. On Windows my dedicated sound card (Xonar DX) had the "Wave out" and "Stereo mix" options that allow you to broadcast the audio being process by your sound card (ie. what comes out of your speakers) as a microphone output. I've been googling for a while and all I've figured out is how to record it with Audacity, which isn't really what I need. Does anyone have any tips/ideas?08:24
SuSEnofolks, I installed both Java 6 and Java 7. And I make Java 7 as default. But whenever I checked my Java plugin on http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?detect=jre&try=1 it says Java 6. My questions is how to make Java 7 works on firefox?08:24
DarwinSurvivormanny550: are they on a separate partition?08:24
ikoniamanny550: ok, that's fair enough, so what do you want to do ?08:25
DarwinSurvivorBrianNie: what video card do you have? if ubuntu-2d works, but not ubuntu, chances are it's a video driver problem08:25

PlayXanyone an ideo how i can record from line-in and mic on the same time with pulse?08:25
sirriffsalotPlayX: what are you using to record with?08:26
manny550ikonia: I want to be able to use it as before put stuff in and out as I please but I can't currently I have no power in it. And since it no longer has NTFS it doesn't work in Windows08:26

ikoniamanny550: what OS do you want to be able to use it with ?08:26
sirriffsalotPlayX: oh, I didn't know that was possible, haha:) can't help you there08:26

manny550ikonia: I should say both linux and Windows08:27
BrianNiemy computer is Dell inspiron 1526.08:27
ikoniamanny550: ok, easy solution, boot into windows, use the partition tool to delete the partition, put a new partition with NTFS on it, and job done08:27
SuSEnodoes IcedTea Plugin 1.2 only works for Java 6 ?08:27
DarwinSurvivorPlayX: sorry, I'm not familiar with ffmpeg, but there may be an option to simply have ffmpeg grab both inputs and do the mixing itself (instead of getting pulse to do it)08:27
DarwinSurvivor!java | SuSEno08:28
ubottuSuSEno: 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.08:28

HowDoIsirriffsalot, Nice optimism, but I've seen Bryce Harrington's responses to past bugs about Intel graphics.  Most of the bugs that affected me in past releases never got fixed.  I had to buy a separate video card to have a stable system, and now the drivers for that in 12.04 are also causing problems.08:33
lindsayajf, well it's selected, not sure if it's the default. but the little bar doesn't move when I speak08:34
sirriffsalotHowDoI: hmm, if you do consider yourself this unlucky, and insist on using ubuntu, it would be sensible to pay attention to what video cards and other hardware ubuntu easily works with and get a hold  of some of that;)08:34

manny550ikonia: oh, and it probably doesn't help that every bit of hardware on my desktop that's running Ubuntu is from 0408:38
HowDoIsirriffsalot, I needed new hardware and the newest processors had just come out.  I don't even use a discrete $25 graphics card if I can help it.  I hardly call that "advanced gear".  I just want to see where or IF the bugs I'm having have been reported, or if I should RMA my new components08:39
ikoniamanny550: really doesn't matter08:39

DarwinSurvivorKhanna_Param: ok, it sounds like the r8169 driver (which is the one you are currently using) was very buggy in pre-12.04 releases. if this is a fresh install, you may have more luck by installing 12.04 instead10:15

MarKsaitisits just misleading for the first starters who dont know it10:20
ikoniaMarKsaitis: update the community docs then10:21
MarKsaitisikonia, unfortunatelly I am just the user. There should be easier mechanisms in the doc pages where users can click like or dislike on some doc sections or have options like "dotn apply anymore" whatever.... so that everybody would be able to see a bigger picture. It seems that current methods dont crack the mustard well enough10:22

ikoniaMarKsaitis: moaning about it won't get anything done, especially if you can see a problem, fix it10:23
MarKsaitisikonia, I can see the problem, but I cant see the resolution because the reason I follow these docs is so I know how do configure it properly.10:24
ikoniaMarKsaitis: if you create a wiki account you can login and update the docs to fix any issues you see10:24
MarKsaitisanyways, canonical should do that10:24

ikoniaMarKsaitis: no-one is responsible for that10:26
ikoniaMarKsaitis: canonical doesn't have a document, and you don't like the community doc and you are unwilling to fix it, so you need to find another document outside of ubuntu that you do like.10:26
MarKsaitisikonia, I bet this should be official then https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/openldap-server.html not to mislead people10:28

DarwinSurvivormeco: either way, swapfile on ntfs is a *bad* idea. in fact, swap on any external device is bad unless you can *guaratee* it won't get unpluged before being swapped off (and usb is WAY to slow for swap anyways)10:45

mecoDarwinSurvivor: sudo rm swapfile10:47
ikonialinuxfreaker: sorry, I disagree10:47
DarwinSurvivormeco: make sure you take it out of your fstab as well or ubuntu will try loading a non-existant swap file!10:47
mecoDarwinSurvivor: Already did that!10:48
soa2iiDarkStar1: Though it looks like dpkg-reconfigure creates a HDB database and does not use this new ldif based cn=config method?10:48
soa2iiOr do I get this wrong?10:48
mecoDarwinSurvivor: I guess I'll reboot. Maybe I can delete the unused swapfile then.10:48
DarkStar1soa2ii: you will need to re-populate after the re-configure10:49

DarwinSurvivorlinuxfreaker: ok, and now you are trying it with 12.04?11:01

linuxfreakerDarwinSurvivor: I read somewhere that it is due to kernel < 3.011:02

ubottuUbuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic11:09

fidel_the last annoying issue i have right now with 12.04 (basically with gnome-shell) is a pretty old one. If i want to resize a window with the mouse the area where the mouse-cursor transforms from normal-mode to "window-grabbing-mode" is still way to small. Is that related with the gnome-shell theme i use or where is that based on?11:09
fidel_background: it makes resizing a window harder then it need to be11:10
fidel_havent found a setting so far where i might be able just to define a pixel-based radius or similar to edit that behaviour11:11

Nobbywhy can't i find Sun java in the software center of 12.04?12:05
Dr_willis!java | Nobby12:05
ubottuNobby: 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.12:05
snapdataDr_willis: I was actually using jackd for about an hour trying to figure out how it worked. The documentation provided no insight for someone with little expertise nor did any of the 'tutorials' I found that pertained exclusively to audacity/onboard audio and could not be adapted in any way that I know of.12:05
stefgSocrate: nvidia card? these tend to have problems with reso's over 800x600 in grub12:05
Dr_willisNobby,  because oracle changed the licenses12:05
Strav`Hi. Anyone here having troubles with iwlwifi on 12.04?12:06
Nobbyah.. thanks!12:06
Socratestefg, ati card a mobility 5850. However i got the same issue with both opensource drivers or fglrx12:06
snapdataDr_willis, thank you for the information though. I appreciate it.12:06
Dr_willissnapdata,  jackd is complex.  ive only toyed with it.   you may want to check the askubuntu.com site to see if anoyne has a guide on 'playing music through skype' if skype is what you  plan on doing with it.12:06
gweltermarsfligth: Linux 32-bit can manage up to 64 GB if the kernel use the PAE functionality of the hardware. But there are still limitations like 2GB per process12:07
Socratestefg, however thank you first i'll try to set a proper resolution12:07
snapdataDr_willis, alright. Thank you very much!12:07
Dr_willissnapdata,  if using webcam and web-cam type chats. the 'webcamstudio' program (not in the repos i think) can let you do some amazeing tricks with a webcam,12:07
Dr_willisnot sure if it works with skype properly or not.12:07
gweltermarsfligth: unless you have specific requirements I would recommend 64-bit if the hardware supports it, even if you have 4 GB or less12:08
Nobbyits messing with my minecraft :P12:08
snapdataDr_willis, I'll check it out, although it's not quite what I was looking for. None-the-less it's relieving.12:08
Dr_willissnapdata,  ive used webcamstudio to 'reroute' videos and stuff to my webcam (well it emulates a webcam) so people in chat rooms see videos, or other funny things i send12:09
marsfligthgwelter: thenks for the suggestion. I find strange, that on download page, Ubuntu suggests the 3 bit. I think that a lot of people are using the wrong OS version12:09
snapdataDr_willis, what about audio?12:10
gweltermarsfligth: yes, apparantly they decided 32 bit would be a safe bet12:10

gweltermarsfligth: although 64 bit software might take up a little more memory, there are slight speed gains due to double number of cpu registers and security can be enhanced due to the capabilities of the processor12:12

ubottuUbuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic12:14

railsraideris there a way to make xfs partition on a live server with one partition on it?12:20
marsfligthDr_willis: thanks for answering, but, I don' think that is an idiot point. to choose the right OS version it is the base, I think. so, I hope that Ubuntu makes a note close to the download button, that advise people with more than 3 GB of memory in total (RAM + video adapter), choose the 64-bit for a better Ubuntu experience. Do you agree?12:20
Dr_willismarsfligth,  they are 'idiot proofing'  not an idiot point...12:20
marsfligthDr_willis: sorry, I'w wrong12:21
Dr_willismarsfligth,  most of the chats on the topic agree that  they should put forthe the effort to 'educate' the users - but people seem to get scared by 'techy terms and stuff like that'12:21
gweltermarsfligth: what a about: 32 bit cpus with more than 3 GB? it is possible...12:22
Dr_willis The Move to a PAE kernel by default is also a supriseing change in the policy.12:22
Dr_willisthat makes the  'you got lots of ram - be sure to get 64bit' a bit of a less requirement.12:22
Dr_willisbut i still suggest using 64bit os on your 64bit hardware12:23
gwelterDr_willis: yes, that was more controversional, but they didn't remove the non-pae, did they?12:23
DarwinSurvivorbcuraboy: can you create a new user account and try logging in with that and see if the problem persists? that will tell us if it's a system-wide or user-specific issue12:23
Dr_willisgwelter,  the default installer for ubuntu is pae. the lubuntu cd - uses non-pae it seems.12:23

Dr_willisDarwinSurvivor,  it could be they come with both.. the artical is a little vague ---> "You can also install Xubuntu or Lubuntu since both come with non-PAE Linux kernels,"12:26
marsfligthDr_willis: I'll use 64, absolutely. i was just speaking about the confusion that a new user finds when is choosing what to download. to me, close to the download button, should be a hyperlink or a note, that in few words helps the new Ubuntu user to choose for the better12:26
DarwinSurvivormarsfligth: the problem is that a lot of users don't even know the difference between ram and hard drives12:27
gweltermarsfligth: users who don't have a clue about their hardware, will have the highest chance of a working system with 32 bit12:27
Dr_willismarsfligth,  with that logic everything would have 1000+ notes. :) and the company is trying harder and harder to make things as simple.. BEST would be for the installer to decide. :) but the move to pae-kernel makes it less of an actual issue.12:27

railsraideri need help resizing down a partition parted doesn't work :( says incompatible feature error (using ext3)13:09
OerHekssimples yes, whole drive or your /home13:09
xanguasimples: only your home, if you wich to encrypt all you'll have to use the alternate installer wich is basically debian's13:09
DarwinSurvivorsimples: you can, but it's not terribly easy. if you just need to encrypt you personal files, use home-folder encryption on each account which is VERY easy to set up13:09
_Matze__heyho!13:10
p1l0tlets go!13:10

abhinav_singhi am using ubutnu 11.10 ..when ever i try to update it says "Warning You are about to install software that can't b authenticated! Doing this could allow a malicious individual to damage or take control of your system"..how do i fix it?  i am not getting any gpg key error..  i am tried to fix missing gpg key error using launchpad-getkeys13:10
foobArrrDarwinSurvivor: what's not terribly easy about it? the alternate installer pretty much does everything automatically13:10
_Matze__I'm running Ubuntu im VMware player andd it suddenly doesn't want to start anymore13:10
monaDeveloperrecently I've upgraded to 12.04 but I get busybox built in shell instead of launching the system13:11
jribVictorCL: you can use the "rename" command (see man page for examples; feel free to ask for more detail)13:11
simplesDarwinSurvivor: i asked to encrypt partitions and not jut home, i want to have all system encrypted13:11
fidel__Matze__: any error-output?13:11
monaDeveloperwhat should I do?13:11
VictorCLyes I need the rename command but for a batch of images13:11
DarwinSurvivorfoobArrr: the alterneate installer is not terribly easy for the average user13:11
jribVictorCL: yes, the "rename" command works on batches of images.13:11
xanguaabhinav_singh: what's the output of sudo-apt-get-update ¿13:11
foobArrrhm k13:11
DarwinSurvivorfoobArrr: it's not problem for you or I, but most users basically need the gui installer13:12
fidel_VictorCL: batch-renaming works pretty good with pyrenamer13:12
ironhalikif using TwinView, is it possible to set the workspaces to change independently of eachother, on both monitors?13:12
fidel_VictorCL: free tool - useful ui13:12
_Matze__fidel_: at first the sceen keeps black for a long time13:12
VictorCLok , i dont know much , I think will be faster if I rename them 1 by 113:12
jribVictorCL: that's up to you I guess13:13
Dr_willisironhalik,  they dont work that way. its one WIDE desktop/workspace  basically13:13
simplesso isnt possible to install ubuntu with encrypted partitions, who call it a great distro?13:13
DarwinSurvivorVictorCL: are all the .jpeg's lowercase (the extension part)?13:13
Dr_willisironhalik,  you could pin an app to the 2nd monitor,  and have it show on all workspaces if you wanted13:13
foobArrrsimples: it is. use the alternate installer.13:13
simplesfoobArrr:  the alternate installer for what i see only allows to use LVM13:14
monaDeveloperrecently I've upgraded to 12.04 but I get busybox built in shell instead of launching the system what should I do?13:14
DarwinSurvivorsimples: it is possible, it's just much easier to use encrypted home folder which will protect the user's personal documents just fine13:14

ironhalikDr_willis: and what about different configuration? two x servers with xinerama?13:14
foobArrrsimples: it allows full disk encryption13:14
foobArrrsimples: lvm in luks, iirc13:14
Dr_willisironhalik,  2 x se4rvers - you have a totally seperate X session on the 2nd monitor. could run whatever you wanted.. i never use that setup13:14
simplesfoobArrr: that only possible through LVM, and i dont want LVM13:14
_Matze__fidel_: before these problems my Ubuntu said it had not enough disk space but there is more than enough13:14
simplesDarwinSurvivor: i dont want to just encrypt home13:15
ironhalikDr_willis: and probably wouldnt be able to move windows around, right?13:15
foobArrrsimples: if you partition manually, you can set it up without lvm13:15
simplesfoobArrr:  you can not13:15
Dr_willisironhalik,  xinerama is basically a lesser version of twinview.13:15

DarwinSurvivorjrib: oh well, he left before I posted it anyways13:17
fidel__Matze__: and are you sure there is enough space free on the system-disk ubuntu is using?13:17
Dr_willisironhalik,  i normally set up vlc video on moniotr #2. and do my work on #1 ;)13:17
ironhalikDr_willis: hah, same here ;D I guess that should work for me, too ;)13:18
fidel_Wiz_KeeD: that you dont need knowledge of user&pw to send mails over that box most likely13:18
DarwinSurvivorsimples: is there a problem with using home folder encryption? the regular installer makes that dead-simple to set up.13:18

rr3is it safe to install a PPA?  I want to install python2.7 on 10.04 and askubuntu says I should install a PPA from Felix Krull?15:14
xanguamadurax86: take it with your hands, and close it; it goes to suspension and then it doesn't turn off...happened to me a few times XD15:14
penreturnsyep15:14
xanguarr3: you use ppa at your own risk, it's up to you15:14
omeRingZer0: haha. ok then google " [Put your graphic card name here] problem with ubuntu linux". maybe that should help if you have tried yet.15:14
jpdspenreturns: Then you'd know that it doesn't work as you've put in a load of pipes (|).15:14

madurax86xangua: how to fix it? im hibernating by pm-hibernate15:15
DJonesrr3: some ppas work well, others can ruin a system, it depends how much you trust the ppa creator15:15
RingZer0ome: I will try that, i appreciate the fact that you tried to help man.15:15
omeRingZer0: not a problem. :)15:15
penreturnsnope... use without | <-- just separate the command line15:16
xanguamadurax86: so you close the tape after selecting the turn off menu¿ it goes to suspension instead¿15:16
rr3okay thanks guys, I am going to resist install the ppa on my 10.04 box, just going install a VM with 12.04 for what I need to get done, I believe 12.04 comes with python 2.715:16
omerr3: 2 and 2.7.15:17
madurax86xangua: ah no no thats not the case(it has happened to me too) this is not that after hibernating theres a black screen nothing happens no blingking lights15:17
