bACktRaCk5pls00:01
krababbeltx then there are newer versions of certain applications, I guess it's like backporting, certainly convenient.00:01
txomon|homekrababbel, well, you can try with the packet default-jdk etc.00:02
txomon|homeit is from oracle00:02
OerHeksbACktRaCk5, what is the name of the file ? .bin .sh .run ?00:03
txomon|homebACktRaCk5, what are you trying to do? Do you know what you are really going to do with a bin editor? you know machine code?00:03
txomon|homeOerHeks, binary as editor doesn't open it00:03
BoohbahbACktRaCk5: check out od and hexedit00:03
bACktRaCk5is just a file.. without extension.. on click right on the file and proprietes : at the Type is just Executable00:03
J2Reasking in case it got buried.... Resizing partitions caused my Ubuntu GRUB to tell me error: Unrecognized Filesystem and puts me into grub rescue. I am able to boot through SuperGRUB2 however. Is there any way i can restore my GRUB?00:03
BoohbahbACktRaCk5: but it's much easier to edit source code... what's the exe in question?00:04
txomon|home!grub2 J200:04

txomon|homebACktRaCk5, so use what they told you, hexedit00:04
bACktRaCk5i trying to make a eggdrop arhive, and i want to see what is in the eggdrop file.. just see not edit00:05
bACktRaCk5ok00:05
bACktRaCk5apt-get install hexedit ?00:05
txomon|homeI suppose so00:05
bACktRaCk5ok00:05
txomon|home!next00:05
txomon|homefuuu you dont have funny things00:05
BoohbahbACktRaCk5: there is also the 'strings' command that will output printable strings in any file (text,binary)00:05
bACktRaCk5hexedit is already the newest version.00:06

bACktRaCk5is allready installed?00:06
krababbelI installed openjdk7 but "sudo update-alternatives --config java" still  shows openjdk6 although it is removed. Libreoffice only shows Sun java6.00:06
txomon|homebACktRaCk5, what do you think?00:06
bACktRaCk5i think yes :) but where is ?:)))00:07
BoohbahbACktRaCk5: which hexedit00:07
txomon|homekrababbel, you should _really_ not remove j600:07
bACktRaCk5i told you.. scz me for this question.. but i`m really new on linux00:07
doomrobocan somebody help me, I have been experiencing key ghosting ever since I upgraded to Precise00:07
doomroboI checked my keyboard to make sure00:07
txomon|homebACktRaCk5, just read the manual00:07
krababbeltxomon|home: I thought I could safely install openjdk7 instead.00:07
txomon|homedoomrobo, define it00:07
txomon|homekrababbel, I am nearly sure that that would break things. There are a lot of programs just for J600:08
doomrobowhen I hold down a key in, say vim, it advances as normal but when I stop pressing the key, it simulates the keypress one more time one second after depressing the key00:08
txomon|homekrababbel, you can specify the classpath etc.00:08
doomroboI have no clue why00:08
BoohbahbACktRaCk5: a gui hex editor is easier than hexedit, i use okteta on kde00:09
txomon|homedoomrobo, just vim? terminal refreshes correctly after resizing?00:09
krababbeltxomon|home: thanks for the hint. I hoped libreoffice would support openjdk7 already, didn't check.00:09
doomrobotxomon|home, yes00:09
doomroboand not only vim, it also happened in a similar way with mousewheel scrolling (a real mouse, not touchpad)00:09
txomon|homedoomrobo, I had problems with terminal resizing, key shortcuts, etc.00:09
BoohbahbACktRaCk5: if you want to just dump the file and not edit it, 'od -x file.exe'00:10
doomrobotxomon|home, come to think of it, XChat has been lagging on showing new posts in IRC, it repeats the last one and takes a second to refresh the text00:10

dasyogiI'll add the system brightness instruction to init.d00:29

OerHekscapitantyler, = DV701:13
sideup66essentially I installed ubuntu server and then afterword installed a simple gnome interface (noob here or id live in bash) but I created a raid1 configuration on 2 nonboot drives that I want to automount as they will be used on a home server as a data drive01:14
sideup66basically I got the raid running fine in disk util (nice program btw) but im stumped on the automount as pysdm isnt really helping me much01:14
sideup66so im just asking for a simple beginner friendly how to on doing this..01:15
sideup66pysdm lists the two drives but any mount ails01:15
sideup66fails i mean01:15

nina666hi...  I have mono 2.10.8.1 and monodevelop 2.8.6.3 installed on my computer (im using ubuntu 12.04) when I want to compile my program which has to use System.Net, it does not recognize it. then i saw, under my folder /usr/lib/mono, i have directories of 2.0 3.5 and 4.0. I could find System.Net under directory 4.0, but i couldnt make use of it... does anyone know how i can solve this problem?01:27
skorketI've just installed Ubuntu Server 12.04 onto a machine.  When I first installed it (from cd) I did not have any network access.  Now that I do, I can't get it to connect.  'ifconfig -a' shows an eth0 interface and 'ifup eth0' says "unknown interface eth0=eth0".  Any suggestions?01:28
nina666(i asked this question in mono channel, but no one responds there at all... so i thought maybe someone here uses mono...)01:28

droopehey guys! I have a question, I am running a linux vbox inside a windows 7 enterprise. The reason behind doing so is that it's easier for me not having to explain / configure the computer to work with the network ( which might prove impossible ).01:59
droopeI have installed ubuntu, and it works fine except the fact that they lose the internet connection after a while. The cable still shows as up, but I can't resolve anything01:59
droopenor I can connect to my own internal lan IP address01:59
droopeany clues on why that may be happening and how can I solve it?01:59

apnAboba, are other gstreamer based players refusing to play as well?02:11

adioyea i have another pc02:16
apnAboba, tough cookie.  SoundConverter runs on top of gstreamer, so it will convert to mp3 as needed.  But it does not solve the problem. Is it only specific mp3s, or all of them?02:16
DarwinSurvivoradio: can you use that for irc? if you have no client on it, use http://webchat.freenode.net/02:16
adioDarwinSurvivor: brb02:16
AbobaIt's one particular mp302:16
Abobagoing to try soundconverter02:16
apnAboba, then something is wrong with the file, not software.  Good luck.02:17
DarwinSurvivormca: is unity-2d not working at all, or just not staying as the default?02:17
mcai cant get it to be default02:18
droopeDarwinSurvivor: that didn't work! will be pasting the ifconfig any second now02:18
Abobaapn, used soundconverter to go to wav, then back to mp3, not it works02:19
DarwinSurvivormca: alright. since it appears to be a kdm issue (not saving the default) you'll probably have better luck asking in the #kubuntu channel.02:20
DarwinSurvivormca: you are however welcome to stay in #ubuntu and see if anyone here is familiar with kdm02:21

MneumonicHas anyone had their mouse buttons stop working in Ubuntu 12.04?  I have had this happen to me 3 or 4 times now.02:27
DarwinSurvivordroope: a host-only will create a connection between windows and ubuntu but ubuntu will have NO internet connection02:27
droopeyeah, I went back to a NAT02:27
droopehey DarwinSurvivor the internet died again02:28
droopehere is what the route says02:28
DarwinSurvivordroope: what you need is either NAT (virtualbox will pretend to be a router) or bridge (ubuntu will appear to the router as a separate computer and be 100% visible to the entire network)02:28
DarwinSurvivordroope: ok, give me the outputs of "route" and "ifconfig" i want to see what changed.02:28
DarwinSurvivordroope: also try "ping 10.0.2.2"02:28
droopeall right02:28
DarwinSurvivordroope: if you are intending to connect TO the ubuntu vm from any other computers, you should use bridged instead of NAT, otherwise don't worry about it and kee nat02:29

snapdataIn pavucontrol a recording device is present for Chrome/Firefox when I use the "voice search" on Google's home page. When I utilize my microphone in flash, however, there is no recording device shown in pavucontrol despite the mic being fully operational in Flash. Any ideas?03:03
ejoJeruvy: Hmmm might require installing one of the tweak packages.  ubunty-tweak, myunity, or compiz-config-settings-manager, or unsettings03:03

kevinhi all. so i just upgraded to oneiric. in the process of going to precise... general question: so i chose lightdm over gdm. in gdm, to run an application it was alt+f2, and now it's coming up as a "search" or whatever... i don't need to search. i know what i want to run. what's the keyboard shortcut for that in lightdm?03:04
DarwinSurvivorkevin: I think you have lightdm/gmd confused with gnome/unity03:05

craigbass1976how do I get ubuntu to get on a wireless network before I log in?  I've got a box I'm going to run headless, and it needs to get an ip all by its lonesome03:05
DarwinSurvivorkevin: what you are describing is the unity search bar (after being logged in)03:06
kevinoh, okay. so what's the "application launcher" keyboard shortcut for unity?03:06
droopest3el__: see, you made it! :P03:07
DarwinSurvivorkevin: if you just need it for launching applications, then just use it like you did the old F2. If you hint enter it will automatically launch the top-left-most application being displayed03:07
Jeruvyejo. hmm just did a relogin, and it fixed itself.03:07
st3el__droope, yessir03:07
droope^^03:07
kevinDarwinSurvivor: well, i did alt+f2, type in 'totem' and hit enter. nothing happens. but if i type 'totem' in a terminal window, it opens up. sooo i dont know why it's not working in this unity search thing.03:07
DarwinSurvivorkevin: when you type in "totem" into the search, do you see the totem player's icon in the box below the search line?03:08

snapdataDarwinSurvivor, when a program utilizes a recording device it will show up in pavucontrol under "Recording." You can, from there, change the recording device that it is utilizing. (IE. make a program recording from "Microphone 1" record from "Microphone 2")03:37
snapdataDarwinSurvivor, this works perfectly with everything except Flash. With Flash, no recording device shows up.03:37
E_Megaszykotic10: Oh yeah, and there isn't any other OS installed. The drive was empty prior to installation so Windows isn't involved in this.03:37

gisli_zykotic10: not all mint's are based on ubuntu03:40
snapdataDarwinSurvivor, yeah. However most other programs do too, and they still work fine with pavucontrol.03:40
zykotic10gisli_: lmde... ya there is that03:40
DarwinSurvivorsnapdata: my guess is that flash is plugging directly into alsa and bypassing pulseaudio completely03:41
DarwinSurvivorsnapdata: when you *play* audio in flash, does it show up in pulseaudio's volume mixer?03:41

xanguaVeritas: run apt-get update again and if it doesn't work use the one you first get in your error message 16126D3A3E5C119203:43
DarwinSurvivorsnapdata: hmm, my guess is still that it's using pure alsa for the recording part (since alsa is more common across distros than pulseaudio)03:44
userhow come they dont charge me for downloading it? or am i downloading from illegal website or something?03:44
useri like it free but just hope i am download correct one03:44
snapdataDarwinSurvivor, yeah. I did a bit of googling relating to Flash using ALSA and apparently it was a bug in 2009/2010 that was "fixed" in Ubuntu 11. There was no further information I could find.03:44
DarwinSurvivorVeritas: try using 16126D3A3E5C119203:44
snapdataDarwinSurvivor, I don't know very much about linux. Would it be possible to force Flash to use PulseAudio, or would it use PulseAudio if ALSA was disabled?03:45

snapdataDarwinSurvivor, zykotic10, oh. I do find it curious that the "ALSA Plugin" shows up when audio is played through Flash but not when a recording device is used.03:47
DarwinSurvivorfishcooker: when creating a new user (either with the installer, or the user control dialog), simply chose "encrypt my home folder" and your home-folder documents will automatically be encrypted03:47

lifelikeAfter I updated to 12.04 from 11.10, I tried running shrewsoft vpn and it connected to my vpn just fine. After that, I restarted and since then I can only get internet access through the vpn. Even after restarts.03:57
lifelikeDarwinSurvivor: I was trying to put everything in one line and make it short :)03:57
VeritasDarwinSurvivor: I tried what you said, and posted the output. It didn't work03:58

DarwinSurvivoralusion: ubuntu uses ext4 by default, just go with that. the only time ext4 is an issue (in my experience) is if you need to share the partition with a BSD system04:05

DarwinSurvivorxmad: also check out byobu (screen + extras) and tmux (complete re-write)05:11
DarwinSurvivorxmad: i personally use tmux, but pick which-ever *you* like best05:12
maverickviolinappren : not possible using switch?05:12
violinapprenmaverick: case works on "pattern matching"  not boolean expressions05:12
maverickviolinappren: thanks..05:12
peepsalothi, i have a digital camera that mounts sdcard as gphoto2.  i'm wondering if i can use the sdcard directly as a block device.  i want to dd to the card, i don't have  a regular card reader05:12
sajimonhi, does anyone have problem with X artifacts when resuming to graphics mode from text console, or resuming from sleep?05:12
grysajimon, what kind of problems?05:13
grysajimon, reply to channel rather than me, I am just asking to clarify but I'll not be the one to help you yet05:13
DarwinSurvivorpeepsalot: why do you need to dd the card?05:13
peepsalotDarwinSurvivor, to put an bootable image on it for raspberry pi05:13
DarwinSurvivorpeepsalot: oh, ok. if you have it mounted run "mount" to find out where the block device is05:14
sajimonmy screen as i said, screen gets full of graphic artifacts, esspecialy unity bar and top panel05:14
Um_cara_qualquerexcuse me, what is the best delphi tool for ubuntu?05:14
DarwinSurvivorpeepsalot: no guarantees however on how the camera's interface works.05:14
xmadDarwinSurvivor: I personally use and love tmux, but at work I ssh to a remote server that has screen but not tmux and I was kinda sad since.. you know, screen sucks. But this story may be offtopic so I'll just stop =p05:15
totesmuhgoatsdelphi still exists?05:15
hausi'm seeing conflicting information in the upstart cookbook. when was the manual stanza added? (one version says 0.6.7 and another says 1.3.0)05:15
peepsaloti don't see it in mount.  nautilus shows the location asgphoto2://[usb:003,005]/05:15
ZetaRC121anyone ever get an Acer Aspire One D-250 to sleep on closing? I can sleep and hibernate and restore from both states on the laptop normally, the backlight turns off on closing, but the laptop never stops running. I'm setting this install up for someone else I'd like to have the ability to just be able to close the laptop and it sleep.05:15
violinapprenUm_cara_qualquer: check lazarus05:15
peepsaloti guess i probably need a real card reader05:16
Um_cara_qualquerviolinappren, thx man05:16
DarwinSurvivorpeepsalot: try "df -h" as well05:16
DarwinSurvivorpeepsalot: if that doesn't work, I have one more little trick you can try05:16
peepsalotsucks cause i have one in my laptop but it doesn't seem to recognize.  possibly because i dropped the laptop and it's cracked right there at the sd slot05:16
peepsalotDarwinSurvivor, df -h doesn't show it either05:17
DarwinSurvivorpeepsalot: run "ls /dev/ > 1" then unplug it and count to 10. then run "ls /dev/ > 2" and then "diff 1 2"05:17
peepsalotnothin :-(05:18

DarwinSurvivorpeepsalot: if that doesn't show anything, then it's probably a weird protocol05:20

ffm01011974!lista05:21

alusionCan I make external hard drives to multiboot different Distro's with respective partitions? (like splitting a 1tb into 4 distros 250gb partition each)05:22
alusionYumi will work just fine with HDD's right? I have only done it to flash drives :o05:22
dr_willisalusion:  yes. you may need to handle the  bootloader by hand for some configs05:22
DarwinSurvivorpeepsalot: yeah, then it's definitely a special protocol. if you can find a setting in the camera to change the usb mode, then that might work. otherwise you're SOL as far as using the camera for a block device interface05:23
dr_willisyumi boots the iso files i beliove. grub2 can do that also alusion05:23

K-Richlater all05:23
alusionWould you recommend me any good quick reference guides? I have the iso's and would like to look into grub2 more05:23
DarwinSurvivoralusion: yes, you can put as many linux distros on your ext. hdd as you like (barring restrictions on number of partitions of course)05:24

johnhi, i cant untick "disable hardware acceleration" from flash player in ubuntu 12.04 with unity but i can do this in other desktop enviroments/graph shells/win managers such as gnome shell ,unity 2d and xfce. is it known bug of compiz?05:24
dr_willisalusion:  the pendrivelinux site i think has some guides/tools also05:24
DarwinSurvivoralusion: just install them as usual. almost all linux distro's will make all the others appear in grub without issue05:25
DarwinSurvivoralusion: it shouldn't be any different that setting up multi-boot on an internal hdd05:25

alusionyes I have familiarity with the pendrivelinux tools so I might as well start there eh?05:25
dr_willisjohn souds like an old bug. where you cant click on the menus/buttons in the flash settings. there used to be some work arounds. ONE i recall was holding down the right mouse button, and then trying toi click on the button05:25

missusehi guys i can't get this nethogs running05:26
missuseioctl failed while establishing local IP for selected device eth0. You may specify the device on the command line.05:26
dr_willisvp18:  conky has tons and tons of docs out about it.05:26
missusei got the above messsge05:26
DarwinSurvivorZetaRC121: so sleep works fine when done manually (via the menus) but not automatically when closing the lid?05:27
ZetaRC121DarwinSurvivor yep05:27
vp18well i install it via synaptics but can't get it to work05:27
vp18i got ubuntu 12.04 64 bit05:27
dr_willisvp18:  so you open a terminal and run 'conky' and it does what exactly?05:27
alusionThank you, dr_willis, for showing me that Delicious.com site, it is a treasure to me already.05:27
DarwinSurvivormissuse: you need to add the interface to the command (eth0, wlan0, etc) that you want to monitory05:27
vp18nothing...05:28
johndr_willis it also doesnt work with keyboard05:28
dr_willisalusion:  my bookmarks are  there under delicious.com/dr_willis05:28
vp18i don't see the eye candy or anything05:28
missusedarwinsurvivor how to do that ?05:28
ZetaRC121DarwinSurvivor since the user is a student that uses a padded pouch for it, a closed but running laptop is not a good thing...05:28
DarwinSurvivorZetaRC121: and you checked the "power" setting in the control panel?05:29
dr_willisvp18:  what desktop are you using? normal unity? gnome-shell?05:29
hausokay, different upstart question. does it matter where the manual stanza appears in an upstart configuration or will it only undefine 'start on' stanzas before the manual stanza?05:29
johni mean select it with tab and then untick with space  button05:29
vp18?05:29
missusedarwinsurvivor how to check which one is my internet connection using ?05:29
vp18i got unity and cairo dock05:29
dr_willisvp18:  id check the askubuntu.com site to see if anyone has a tweaked conky config for working with unity.  it could be conky is running - but under the desktop for some reason.05:30
DarwinSurvivormissuse: pastebin the output of "ifconfig" and i'll tell you05:30
DarwinSurvivoralusion: if on wired, probably eth0. if on wireless, probably wlan0. some systems are a little different though05:31
ZetaRC121DarwinSurvivor Yep, there is no option about what to do when the laptop is closed, only what to do when on/off battery and what to do when the power button is pressed05:31
DarwinSurvivorZetaRC121: it would appear that ubuntu is not detecting the lid switch then.05:32

mintuxI would like to see my desktop via browser but my problem is the remote vnc on browser doesn't show my current desktop and it seems it made new session when I use this command : vncserver :1  iv got A VNC server is already running as :1 but it's not true .. so what shall I do?05:37
JimuYeah, I don't see a compelling reason to use it these days05:37
dr_willismintux:  thats how vnc can work.05:38
dr_willismintux:  gnomes 'vino' vnc server can share the current visible desktop - if you enable it05:39
mintuxdr_willis:but I don't have access via browser with vino?05:39
dr_willismintux:  vncserver -kill :1      should kill off any vnc server on port105:39

ktchkHi when installing gimp-2.7 for ubuntu 10.04 lts (rtai) libgimp-2.0.0 need el and en-CA language support. any work arround?05:41
mintuxdr_willis: now I can see my desktop (new session) with http and 5903 port it's a java applet . I want to see desktop with browser05:41
ZetaRC121DarwinSurvivor would that still be the case when the backlight goes off? http://pastebin.com/p8krha0h05:41
dr_willismintux:  theres the x11vnserver or perhaps a vino option. but ive not used the vnc 'web' feature in years.. i found it too slow. i always use a normal vnc client05:42
mintuxdr_willis: I ran vncserver -kill :1 it said to me Can't find file /home/mrg/.vnc/mrg-System-Product-Name:1.pid05:42
dr_willismintux:  check ps ax | grep vnc     to  see how many vncsessions you got running.05:42
mintuxwhen I want to use it ..it said it's using when I want to kill it, it said there is no ...05:42
dr_willisits easy to accidently spawn extra vnc sessions.05:43
dr_willisyou are telling it to use :1  - it could be theres a stale pid file also in your .vnc dir05:43
dr_willisjust 'vncserver' will selext the next open port05:44
mintuxI see something here05:44
DarwinSurvivorZetaRC121: yes, the backlight is most likely directly turned off in hardware05:44
mintuxhttp://codepad.org/UTfswNZb05:44
dr_willisyou could  always use a 'killall vncserver' perhaps  and clean out the .pid files and other extra files in .vnc05:44
dr_willisbut thats a little overkill05:44
mintuxI killall Xtightvnc now I have 3352 pts/2    S+     0:00 grep --colour=auto vnc05:45
dr_willismintux:  yes.. thats grep showing its self. ;)05:46
dr_willislogical eh05:46
mintux:-D05:46
dr_willisi alwyas use the absolute lightest most minimal window manager i can - when using vnc.  too fancy a desktoop can slow it down too much05:47
DarwinSurvivorZetaRC121: does the following file exist on your system?: /proc/acpi/button/lib/LID0/state ?05:47

DarwinSurvivorZetaRC121: once you've done that tell me if you see anything in the list other than "closed"05:54
dr_williscount to 5,tap your heels together 3 times... say the magic words.. ;)05:54

dr_willisfigure out some way to change his wallpaper when he closed the  lid and make it show a scary face... ;P05:55
DarwinSurvivorbahaha05:55
ZetaRC121DarwinSurvivor nope, still closed05:55
dr_willisive learned to NEVER trust the pc doing things automatically when closeing the Lid.. in Linux OR in windows..05:56
DarwinSurvivorZetaRC121: ok, then it appears that acpi (what handles the hardware -> software interface) is detecting your lid switch, but not that it is being triggered05:56
dr_willishad a laptop almost burn up one day  doing that..05:56
StarryNighttrusting windows is like trusting obama NOT to fake his birth certificate05:57
DarwinSurvivorZetaRC121: do you by any chance have a directory for LID1 in the same place as LID0?05:57
Terminus_windows 7 has been quite decent with laptop power management. linux OTOH i've never had any luck with.05:57
Terminus_i've learned to just run pm-suspend manually.05:57
dr_willisive had windos 7 work... unless i was running any apps.. ;)05:57

ZetaRC121dr_willis well on my desktop it usually starts working when I threaten to hit it with the hammer, this laptop is unimpressed by threats though...06:00

rabbi1how to run .aspx scripts on ubuntu ? can i ?06:35
windbuntui only did a 1 gig swap this time hope thats ok06:35
DarwinSurvivorkaustubh: please elaborate on "does not work" is there no network interface to chose, does it time out, do you not get an ip, does routing not work, etc06:37
DarwinSurvivorrabbi1: like asp.net website stuff?06:37
gh0strideranyone here have any ideas why everything else plays audio but not vlc?06:38
rabbi1DarwinSurvivor: yeap, one of asp.net webapp is in windows server, i use ubuntu. I am responsible to edit the HTML and CSS part, but i can't test the file after edition because the pages are asp.net and i am on linux. ....06:38
proxinixyou may need to install ubuntu-restricted-extras gh0strider06:39
gh0striderdragonplayer, kmplayer, kaffeine, everything works except vlc!06:39
gh0stridersorry for the "!" its just frustrating...06:39

ubottuFor multimedia issues, this page has useful information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats - See also https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/musicvideophotos/C/video.html - But please use free formats if you can: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeFormats06:40
gh0strideri tried installing the multimedia repository for ubuntu but that didn't solve anything either...06:40
cache_zai actually only installed vlc, not third party codecs - and things play fine06:40
proxinixForgive me but, is the volume off on the player?  That happens06:41
rabbi1what will asp.net2-examples in the synaptic manager do ? can't find any manuals or instructions :(06:42
gh0striderinstalling ubuntu-restricted-extras didn't solve the problem....06:42
archiegh0strider: You can start a terminal and run vlc and then try playing the file. It should log error messages in the terminal.06:42
gh0striderhmmm...06:42
gh0striderarchie: tried that too...06:43
gh0striderit plays the video in the terminal "console" but no sound06:43

DarwinSurvivorrabbi1: last I checked asp.net could be run on apache if you are using windows, but I don't think it will run on linux06:43
rabbi1DarwinSurvivor: http://logicsupport.com/blog/?p=15306:44
rabbi1fyi06:44
DarwinSurvivorrabbi1: if it uses the mono libraries, then you MAY be able to run it, but that would rely on the fact that your website only uses calls and utilities fully supported by mono06:44
rabbi1DarwinSurvivor: thank you, will check out their site .... worth a try .... :D06:44
DarwinSurvivorrichtroye: yeah, as I thought, it uses mono06:44
DarwinSurvivorrabbi1: beware, a LOT of .net stuff does NOT work in mono at all, so if you use anything exotic or specalized you'll probably run into problems06:45
rabbi1DarwinSurvivor: fingers crossed ;)06:45
DarwinSurvivorrabbi1: If you can, you're probably best off using a virtualmachine or something to get your test system as close to the same as your production system as possible06:45
DarwinSurvivorrabbi1: also, those instructions are for redhad, so you may have to do some translations/conversions when following those instructions06:47

ubottukrababbel for more info: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin.

SuSEnobut you can explain your network configuration, so others can help.07:11
DJonesalusion: I doubt it, the channel is only for the officially supported versions of Ubuntu (ubuntu/kubuntu/xubuntu/lubuntu)07:11

CruX|in virtualbox07:44
DarwinSurvivorthomaspr: no, i386 is for ALL 32 bit processors (except possibly arm)07:44
stevedtrrrrmyes i am in virtualbox07:44
DarwinSurvivorthomaspr: amd64 is also for all 64 bit processors07:44
appamajig_i386 is any x86 (from amd, intel, a few others, but relatively unknown) that does NOT support 64-bit (but i386 apps CAN run on 64-bit hardware)07:44
HowDoIsirriffsalot, they shouldn't release an LTS version saying it works unless it really does.  Taking the expert's word for it shouldn't be "crazy"07:44
DarwinSurvivorthomaspr: basically intel made a 32 bit architecture that everyone else copied and amd did the same with 64 bit07:45
AlinnHi07:45
sirriffsalotHowDoI: they do tell us they can't be 100% sure:)07:45
wildwillycan someone explain what would cause an installation to hang at "stopping CPU interrupts balancing daemon"?07:45
stevedtrrrrmi am in virtual box with 32 bit processor and i386 iso file07:45
AchlysEpithetWell actually the i386 was a family of 32 bit processors including the Intel 80686.07:45
AchlysEpithetThe i586 was the pentium series, and the 686 were most of the 64bit processors.07:45
stevedtrrrrm"This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU :- pae"07:46
AchlysEpithetWell officially, the are intel-specefic, but they use this de-factor term to classify the processors. so an i386 ubuntu would run fine on any 32 bit intel or amd processor.07:46
appamajig_AchlysEpithet, in the context of linux, it means 32-bit compiled. no need to confuse poeple.07:46
stevedtrrrrm"This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU :- pae" << is the error msg when booting to the image thru virtualbox07:46
AchlysEpithetstevedtrrrrm, mmm. Well your CPU doesn't have physical address extension.07:46
DarwinSurvivorstevedtrrrrm: this is in virtualbox?07:46
HowDoIsirriffsalot, yeah, I'm still wondering if I should try to RMA my brand new motherboard before it's too late to try another one.  Maybe mixing up new hardware would make the bug go away07:46
stevedtrrrrmyes darwin07:46
AchlysEpithetThey let you address more than 4 GB of ram in non 64 bit systems.07:46
AlinnIn ubuntu scripts runs after double clicking how can i do this in kubuntu?07:47
sirriffsalotHowDoI: Don't know what to tell you, haha:)07:47
banseljajOkay, Now it won't let me log in graphically, But I can log in from command line easily. Worst of all, it can log in the Guest Account07:47
banseljaj:@07:47
sirriffsalotHowDoI: gonna visit my dad with this computer and see if we can sort it out together since no one here has the length of time + skill to sort it out07:47
AchlysEpithetappamajig_, =\. Well pardon me if I am wrong, but thomaspr thought it's only for intel.07:47
DarwinSurvivorstevedtrrrrm: close the guest, select it and hit "settings -> system -> processor" and make sure "Enable PAE" is checked07:47
stevedtrrrrmachlys epithet - the processor is a standard but 6 or 87 year old ibm thinkpads' intel centrino. 1.5ghz07:47
stevedtrrrrm*6 or 7*07:47
AchlysEpithetstevedtrrrrm, well then it's probably 32 bit, has no PAE. And will therefore only run Ubuntu i386.07:48
AchlysEpithetAnd umm... will only address upto 4 GB of ram.07:48
AchlysEpithet(Actually 3.7 GB or something like that.)07:48
HowDoIsirriffsalot, lul, I would try my new hardware under Windows, but my windows HDD is an IDE drive, and the new motherboard doesn't have a connector.  Irony...07:48
stevedtrrrrmachlys - but ive downloaded the i386 iso07:48
AchlysEpithetIt doesn't run?07:49
AchlysEpithetO_o.07:49

DarwinSurvivorstevedtrrrrm: check the virtualbox setting. if "Enable PAE" is grayed out, your processor does not support it07:49
stevedtrrrrmcorrect.07:49

AchlysEpithetand disable VT/x if there is an option.07:49
DarwinSurvivorstevedtrrrrm: did you check the virtual box setting for PAE?07:49
AchlysEpithetSince I don't know what version of VirtualBox you run.07:49
stevedtrrrrmachlys- ill have to buy some more ram- the machine only has 248MB07:50
AchlysEpithetOh damn. -.-07:50
appamajig_AchlysEpithet, if you want to be technical, it's not an intel term, it's a standard for 32-bit software instruction (a set of instruction used by compiled 32-bit applications) it was pioneered by intel, and first included on 80386 processors. It is not intel-specific, but it is a standard. easiest explained as 32-bit programs are i386. processor doesn't matter (unless you'r on a phone or an up coming arm-processor system).07:50
AchlysEpithetThen just use 128 mb of ram.07:50
stevedtrrrrmachlys - ill set it to that npw07:50
stevedtrrrrmsec07:50
AchlysEpithetappamajig_, are you implying IA-32 is same as i386?07:51
HowDoIsirriffsalot, yeah, right now I just have to deal with the screen blanking out all the time, but at least it hasn't crashed yet.  With a 5 year old graphics card.07:51

stevedtrrrrmwhere will the vtx option be ?07:52
stevedtrrrrm"This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU :- pae" << is the error msg when booting to the image thru virtualbox07:52
AchlysEpithetstevedtrrrrm, under processors, I think. I actually use VMWare.07:52
appamajig_AchlysEpithet, BUT, with all that said, there really was no need to correct you at all. So you can disregard it. had a pedantic moment... IA-32 is the OFFICIAL intel verbage for 32-bit instruction sets. IA-32 is specifically intel, i386 is generic.07:53
appamajig_AchlysEpithet, but no, I wasn't originally saying that.07:53
AchlysEpithet-.-07:53
AlinnIn ubuntu scripts runs after double clicking how can i do this in kubuntu?07:53
stevedtrrrrmi see no vtx option07:54
AchlysEpithetI'll rephrase what you just said. Intel i386 isn't the generic term for all 32 bit processors. It's the official term for the Intel 80686 processors made during in 1985.07:54
stevedtrrrrmerror message is:- "This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU :- pae"07:54
AchlysEpithetWhile IA-32 is the generic name for all 32 bit processors.07:54
AchlysEpithethttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IA-3207:54
AchlysEpithetstevedtrrrrm, Are you sure your CPU has PAE?07:54
appamajig_you got that from IA-32 is the OFFICIAL intel verbage? seriously?07:54
AchlysEpithetIt is.07:55
HowDoIstevedtrrrrm, have you installed the VB kernel modules?07:55

dr_willislubuntu has non pae option by default07:57
HowDoIstevedtrrrrm, did you recently update the linux kernel on your machine?  Virtualbox always needed to reload the kernel module after I did that07:57
DarwinSurvivorHowDoI: I believe his host system is windows07:57
stevedtrrrrmno how do i i wouldnt know how to do that07:58
pedahzurI'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 under KVM/qemu (via virt-install)on a CentOS 6.2 host. Install starts, but then tells me: "ERROR Couldn't find hvm kernel for Ubuntu tree." Same error with the 10.04 ISO. Both are server CDs. Any ideas?07:58
_Matze_My Ubuntu on WMware-player broke down and wouldn't boot anymore. so I came here yesterday and I was told to make a new ubuntu-VM and get access to the old ubuntu-VM from the new system.. how can I do so?07:58
stevedtrrrrmdarwin im on windows yes07:58
HowDoIOh wait, stevedtrrrrm, you're asking about Windows?07:58
AchlysEpithetstevedtrrrrm,07:58
AchlysEpithetUmmm, sorry to bother you, but can you tell me the exact processor you use?07:58
DarwinSurvivorstevedtrrrrm: can you please look at the screenshot I posted and tell me if you have the same PAE/NX option in your virtualbox?07:58
stevedtrrrrmhowdoi - running ubuntu on virtualbox in windows. yes07:58
DarwinSurvivorHowDoI: windows host, ubuntu guest07:58
stevedtrrrrmlooking darwin07:59
HowDoIstevedtrrrrm, so your windows host is complaining about not having pae, or your Ubuntu guest OS?07:59
stevedtrrrrmubuntu guest os when i try to boot to the CD to install it07:59
AchlysEpithetstevedtrrrrm, do you have PAE enabled in BIOS?07:59
stevedtrrrrmdarwin - the option is there, and greyed out, with the check mark present.08:00
AchlysEpithetGreyed out? Aha.08:00
stevedtrrrrmachlys - i wouldnt know.08:00
AchlysEpithetstevedtrrrrm, Most likely, your BIOS doesn't have PAE enabled.08:00
AchlysEpithet=).08:00
AchlysEpithetIf the host doesn't have PAE enabled, the guest can't have an option for PAE.08:00
HowDoIstevedtrrrrm, weird.  Most computers have had pae support for decades, apparently08:01
AchlysEpithetHowDoI, most are, by default, disabled.08:01

stevedtrrrrmthis is a 2005 Thinkpad R50e08:01
stevedtrrrrmso i must go and enable it?08:01
stevedtrrrrmin bios?08:01
HowDoIstevedtrrrrm, have you tried booting the Ubuntu CD directly, without virtualbox?08:02
stevedtrrrrmhowdoi - i dont have a CD08:02
DarwinSurvivorstevedtrrrrm: it could also be that his windows OS simply doesn't have the PAE driver installed.08:03
stevedtrrrrmdarwinsurvivor, how do i check?08:03
EvokenAcheronDammit, my bnc went down. -.-08:03
HowDoIstevedtrrrrm, so you're just mounting the .iso in Windows?  You could try a USB stick08:03
stevedtrrrrmand how do i activate it in  bios?08:03
EvokenAcheronstevedtrrrrm, is it AMI or Phoenix?08:04
stevedtrrrrmhrmm. not sure i have a USB stick- ill check08:04
efaistoshello08:04
EvokenAcheronHello efaistos.08:04
stevedtrrrrmevoken - is what AMI or phoenix?08:04
efaistosWas wondering was the equivalent of sun-java6-jre on ubuntu ...08:04
stevedtrrrrmevoken ive no idea what ami and phoenix refer to08:04
EvokenAcheronstevedtrrrrm, is your BIOS made by American Megatrends International or Phoenix?08:04
efaistosor this one sun-java6-plugin08:04
dr_willis!java08:05
ubottuTo just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.08:05
EvokenAcheronefaistos, the sun-java6-plugin, I believe, integrates java with the browsers.08:05
stevedtrrrrmevoken - i dont know- i dont get the yellow megatrends logo. I imagine phonix - will it tell me at boot?08:05
DarwinSurvivorstevedtrrrrm: booting off the live-cd/usb will tell you if your *processor* supports it. if not, you'll have to use lubuntu or something. If it DOES support it, you will need to try the #windows channel and ask them how to install it in windows08:05
EvokenAcheronstevedtrrrrm, umm.. well yes, usually. Should I get you pictures of those two?08:05
efaistosEvokenAcheron: yeah have a colleague here with an ubuntu ... and cant find any java pkg08:05

HowDoIjanamithran, press the Num Lock key?08:08
AchlysEpithetstevedtrrrrm, all right. Ah, just go through all of the submenus, it should have "PAE" written some place. I am pretty sure.08:08
efaistosthanks i forwarded the two links he should be able to setup his java now :)08:08
AchlysEpithetjanamithran, it could be possible that you're not using the right keyboard layout.08:08

AchlysEpithetdontknow, I believe not, each card has their own driver.08:09
AchlysEpithetYou can use jockey to find out what driver your computer needs.08:09
AchlysEpithetIf you can't find the right driver for your card, go to the ATI website, hopefully, they'll have a source code for your card that you can compile and install.08:10
AchlysEpithetBut jockey-gtk usually detects most of the hardwares that require installing a propreitary driver and does it automatically for you.08:10

xenon_yeah,cannot do,i can't access terminal08:28
DarwinSurvivor_Matze_: try booting the vm with a setup iso for ubuntu and using that08:28
DarwinSurvivor_Matze_: just like when you first installed it, just chose "try ubuntu" instead of "install ubuntu"08:28
AchlysEpithetxenon_, restart your computer, drop into recovery mode.08:28
dr_willis_Matze_:  have the new vm instance  attatch the broken instances hd image to the new vm session as a 2nd hd is one way08:29

DarwinSurvivor_Matze_: select the vm in virtualbox and got to settings -> storage and add the iso as a virtual CD-rom08:32
_Matze_dr_willis:       VMware-player or the VM-OS itself?08:32
DarwinSurvivor_Matze_: then boot it08:32
stevedtrrrrmok how doi08:32
cocolosdr_willis: Well when I run my cuda app it always get killed because the kernel is taking too long08:32
cocolosdr_willis: I assume this is to prevent program from going to infinite loop08:32
xenon_i wrote "sudo dpkg -r" and it gave an error " dpkg : -- remove needs at least one package name argument"08:32
dr_willis_Matze_:  im not clear on what yiou mean. if you want to access a messed up vm disk image.. boot an iso in the VM08:32

thatoneguyi just restarted so it'll tak ea couple mins08:33

AchlysEpithetI suggest you too look at this <--- http://tuxtweaks.com/2008/08/how-to-control-fan-speeds-in-ubuntu/08:36
stevedtrrrrmnope that change to the bios didnt work :(08:36
stevedtrrrrmstill says missing pae08:36
DarwinSurvivorstevedtrrrrm: then you'll either have to talk to the #windows guys to find out if it's a hardware or windows problem. or you will need to use lubuntu which has no pae by default08:36
_Matze_dr_willis:       but how can I tell it, what VM-OS to access?08:36
AchlysEpithetDarwinSurvivor, Most Intels of the Core generation don't go beyond 45 inside the room.08:36
cocolosdr_willis: is that correct?08:37
stevedtrrrrmok darwin thanks08:37
AchlysEpithetCPUs with a bigger manufacturing process tend to heat up faster. AMDs heat up really bad.08:37
DarwinSurvivorstevedtrrrrm: with 256MB of ram, you're going to have a hard time running a vm anyways, especially the full-blown unity desktop08:37
thatoneguyIt's a samsung series 9... being thin probably wouldn't help that, I just thought it was really strange considering it barely gets warm in windows no matter what i do08:37
dr_williscocolos:  no idea. never messed with cuda or that part of ubuntu08:38
rebournanyone familiar with pbxware08:38
DarwinSurvivorthatoneguy: do the fans sound noisier or quieter in ubuntu than windows (also check with your hand how much pressure/volume is coming out)08:38
_Matze_dr_willis:       I have another Ubuntu on VMware-player. can I maybe access the other ubuntu from there?08:38
dr_willis_Matze_:  if i had a broken vm in vbox. i would start that vm session in vbox.  but befor i powered it on 'virtually' i would have it insert the iso in to the virtual cd drive.. so its in fact booting the cd.... same as you would for a real pc.08:39
thatoneguyDarwinSurvivor: I'll take notice tomorrow... the fan on this thing is really quiet so I rarely notice it.08:39
_Matze_dr_willis:       Ah, so I need a virtual cd drive08:40
dr_willis_Matze_:  thats a noirmal feature of all these vm's08:40

ikoniaAnomie21: eg: turn them on/off10:58
Anomie21yep they both work10:58
ikoniaAnomie21: great, ok, so in a minute we are going to run a test encode on your video10:58

OriginalYanksterikonia: ah... It's a home built, no specific model... Stationary cabinet w/ Asus p5q pro motherboard, Sapphire Radeon grahpics and 8gb ram10:59
ikoniaOriginalYankster: ok, but it's an "x86" or "intel" style computer, not the mac platform10:59
Anomie21ikonia: yep10:59
ikoniaAnomie21: great, take a quick look at that top output now, (ignore the ram for the moment) does it look "generic" as in nothing is eating your resources now ?11:00
OriginalYanksterikonia: intel, not a mac platform11:00
Anomie21Yep, only unusual thing is 'python' using 22.3% of my RAM - is that the video encoding?11:00
ikoniaOriginalYankster: ok, is there a reason you're not just doing a standard install from CD11:00
ikoniaAnomie21: are you encoding a video now ?11:01

gaston_it seems raw1394 is not used anymore by 12.0411:05

gaston_hi guys, i'm trying to use an external video aquisition card, but it won't work. anyone familiar with that?11:10
ikoniaAnomie21: that's good11:10
auronandaceikonia: cool, thanks for the info11:10
rtp2342auronandace: -11 is SIGSEGV, so it simulates a segmentation fault in the target process11:10
ikoniaAnomie21: ok, what I'd like you to do, is open the encoding application and run an encode11:10
auronandacertp2342: ah, neat11:10
ikoniaAnomie21: keep an eye on your resources in the top window, you should seem them get used quite agressivly (which is good)11:10
mafiaboythanx ....i will try compiling it11:11

TvL2386Hi guys, I'm running ubuntu12.04 with a HP NC550SFP 10G NIC (Emulex OneConnect) and I'm experiencing packet drops/overruns. Traffic going through is 140MBIT/~40000 p/s and I experience about 1 overrun every 2 seconds. I think it's an issue with the be2net driver (another machine running 10.04 on myricom 10G nics has 10 times the load and drops/overruns nothing) Anybody here got any idea or experiences the same?11:12
ikoniaAnomie21: keep an eye on the "swap" section in top, the total and the used column11:12
OriginalYanksterikonia: have tried formatting USB and starting over, as well as played wildly boot priority/device emulation and still nothing... leaning towards tip from <Wipster> that USB is screwed...11:12
ikoniaAnomie21: if the total and used column are the same number (eg: you've used all available swap) your machine is running low on resources11:12
Anomie21ikonia: Seems like there is plenty of swap, RAM, and CPU11:13
ikoniaAnomie21: ok, start an encode and see what happens11:13
Anomie21but it's still running at a snails pace :(11:13
ikoniaAnomie21: interesting, so you know you're not shy on resources then11:13
ikoniaOriginalYankster: unplug your disk and try to boot the USB disk, does it still work again ?11:13

Anomie21ikonia: Anything else I can do? Just leave it for a few hours and see it works?11:17
apctrgaston_: Ya i'm using 9.10...becoz i have created a  local repository for that one...11:17
ikoniaAnomie21: let it run, lets see what happens11:17
auronandacegaston_: i have no experience with firewire11:17
gaston_i see that raw1394 and such are not used anymore in 12.04?11:17
gaston_auronandace, oh then forget it, thanks anyways :)11:18
Anomie21Time to investigate online photo slideshow makers :P11:18
rtp2342gaston_: raw1394 belongs to the old firewire stack and is deprecated11:18
ikoniaAnomie21: you'll need to let one run as a benchmark to see if we can improve it11:18
WipsterThe ubuntu 12.04 server i386 I have on a usb keeps failing its md5 check on ./install/netboot/ubuntu-installer/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default, I have checked the md5 of the iso and its correct and I have used two different usb's. is there a known problem with the current server image?11:18
ikoniaAnomie21: out of interest, how big is this movie encode ?11:18
gaston_rtp2342, so what do i need to do to use my video card?11:19
rtp2342gaston_: i don't know if there is a replacement for raw1394 in the new stack11:19
ikoniaWipster: why is a usb key looking at a pxe config ?11:19
gaston_rtp2342, i don't really need a replacement, i just need to be able to grab from my cam ;)11:19

gaston_rtp2342, but as far as I know, all video grabbers are firewire, no?11:20
Anomie21ikonia: Not sure, 33 .TIFFs at about 500MB going in, not sure whatll that be once its converted11:20
OriginalYanksterikonia: i'll be darned.. Nope, doesn't work. USB skrewd?11:20
ikoniaOriginalYankster: it certainly sounds that way11:20
rtp2342gaston_: sorry, no experience with video grabbers11:20
ikoniaAnomie21: ok, just trying to get an idea of the size11:20
ikoniaWipster: ok, so don't worry about pxeconfig as your not using pxe11:21
gaston_rtp2342, easy, i'll keep looking and ask again ;)11:21
Anomie21ikonia: http://www.photosnack.com/ <-- Looks like a lot easier solution :P11:21
stangrifirst of all, the asterisk.org has no binary packages for 12.04 so I'm stuck with the reference to oneiric in sources.list11:21
stangrishould I just remove this reference?11:21
Wipsterikonia, as the self check fails on that package how do I know the rest is fine? Will this problem be corrected in the next ico packing?11:22
Wipster*iso11:22
ikoniaWipster: no idea what you're talking about "next iso packaging", if the iso verify's the md5sum you should be fine11:22
skulltipmorning, should I install a fresh 12.04 or upgrade? any difference?11:22
rtp2342gaston_: from the help text of the new firewire stack: "the module will be called firewire-core. This module functionally replaces ieee1394, raw1394, and video1394. To access it from application programs, you generally need at least libraw1394 v2."11:22
Wipsterikonia, but it fails its self test which is worrying11:23
rtp2342gaston_: so i guess your framegrabbing app has to support libraw1394 v2.11:23
zvacetskulltip:you will  end up with same result11:23
auronandaceskulltip: more can go wrong with an upgrade (especially if you use ppas)11:23
edgyHi, I installed squid but it's listening on tcp6 only, what can I do to fix this?11:23
ikoniaWipster: depends what that self test is checking for, you're using the netboot option, I'm not sure how well that CD is put tgother11:23
gaston_rtp2342, hm i think i have it, but let me try again11:23
skulltipok thanks auronandace and zvacet11:24
ikoniaWipster: either way, you're not using the pxeboot stuff, so you shouldn't have a problem11:24

ikoniaedgy: how did you install squid11:24
Wipsterikonia, ok cheers, shall just go for it then11:24

Jbarcus81Question.. Long time Ubuntu user, first time putting it on my laptop by Asus... I can't get the power settings to extend my battery life at all.. I can get about 5 hours if not more on Windows .. but Ubuntu drains it in about an hour or less.. what gives??11:44
Dr_willisJbarcus81,  what version of ubuntu?11:45
Jbarcus8112.04 x6411:46
Dr_willisYou have one of those dual-gpu optimus laptops?11:46
Jbarcus81It has an Intel Core i-511:47
Jbarcus81But Intel HD 3000 Graphics11:47
Dr_williswell that elimimtes the only idea i have on  whats sucking the battery.11:47
Jbarcus81lol... I have no idea.. I have it set to suspend when I close the lid.. .It seems to start to do this but locks up and I have to power down and back on to get it back..11:48

Jbarcus81I bought it in February ...11:52
Dr_willisJbarcus81,  ive often found that 'very new' laptops tend to be more problematic, untill the next release of ubuntu comes out.  ie: one i bought right NOW may have issues that may get fixed with the next 6 mo release.11:53
Dr_willisoften its kernel bugs/fix's that are the main cause/cure.11:53

guest1999Dr_willis: manual says: ZLIB_1_2 must be assigned to a directory containing the zlib-1.2 library; it should be /usr/lib.12:00
Dr_willisgaston_,  Hmm. been ages since i used one. last camcorder i had with firewire it actually accessed it as if it was a hard drive.. :)12:00
guest1999on 12.04 it was auto detected12:00
Dr_willisJbarcus81,  you could install all the desktops on the same install if you wanted.12:00
Dr_willisJbarcus81,  for low end machines/old skool type interfaces/   i tend to use Lubuntu.12:01
gaston_Dr_willis, act it send Composite to the card, which then is plugged by firewire to the laptop12:01
guest1999Dr_willis: I am using the configure: ./configure --f90=gfortran --blas=/usr/lib/ --lapack=/usr/lib/lapack/12:01
DeltaHeavyJbarcus81: When it comes to Desktop interfaces it's mostly preferance. Some are more lightweight than others so if you're using a pretty old machine, I'd suggest XFCE, and if you have something even older like a pentium II, LXDE is more lightweight. You can however install any number of Desktop enviroments and switch between them freely but then you have applications that make use of KDE mixed in with GNOME and it can get annoying.12:01

CRM114it looks like freemono is not really monospace12:03
DeltaHeavyJbarcus81: If I recall correctly XFCE uses GTK+ just like GNOME so if you installed XFCE in a plain Ubuntu install you shouldn't run into many of the headaches I mentioned before ealier. You can install it with apt-get12:03
Dr_willismakes the song and dances you got to do on windows to get alternative 'shells' seem redicilous. ;)12:03
Dr_willisDoes lubuntu use gtk? I never noticed.. i think it may for some apps..12:04
Jbarcus81I'll give it a shot! Thanks..12:04
DeltaHeavyidk if LXDE uses GTK+. GTK+ does seem to be leading the pack though.12:04
Dr_willisgtk+ is used by so many things :) i imagine lubuntu uses it for somthing.12:04

Dr_willisMorganJarl,  you get to the login/lightdm screen and what happens exactly?12:09
Dr_willischrowe_,  what release of ubuntu?12:09
shinichiDr_willis, sir can you help me about ubuntu 12.04?12:09
Dr_willisshinichi,  tell the channel the problem and see who can help/knows...12:10
chrowe_Dr_willis: 11.1012:10
MorganJarlDr_willis, I have set my user to log in automatically, but it stops at the log in anyway. So I type in teh pasword, the skreen goes black for half a second (showing some text that I have no time to read) and tehn I am back at the login again.12:10
chrowe_and I am running nautilus for my file manager12:11
Dr_willisMorganJarl,  go to the console, stop lightdm, (sudo service lightdm stop) and try 'startx' and look for error messages.   you could also try making a new user and see if the same issue happens to them.12:11
MorganJarlDr_willis, problem is I can only log in as guest so I have no SUDO rights.12:12
Dr_willischrowe_,  i alwyas used the 'ntfs-config' tool (had to install it) to set/tweak my ntfs mounting options.  I thought 11.10+ used dconf, not gconf also...12:12
Dr_willisMorganJarl,  at the console you cant login?12:12
Dr_willisMorganJarl,  alt-ctrl-f1 = console. :)12:12
DeltaHeavyMorganJarl: Or even better use 'su <username>'12:13
Dr_willisMorganJarl,  there is a known issue in 12.04 where users cant login via lightdm, but guest can.. (i just installed gdm and i can login with it)12:13
DeltaHeavy'su - <username>' would be better as it would run that users personal login bash scripts12:14

shinichiok, erm, i've installed ubuntu 12.04 on a partitioned external hard drive yesterday, after install, ubuntu doesn't boot up and only a black screen greeted me..,but when i boot up my windows 7 it boots up normally..so i tried searching the net for solutions and what i used is easyBCD instead of grub2 which i think has a problem..,anyway, when i choose ubuntu it loads and then gets stuck at the line "starting cmain()...", i tried waiting but nothing hap12:15

Dr_willishttp://askubuntu.com/questions/130721/12-04-lightdm-cannot-login12:16
DeltaHeavyThat doesn't sound like it would effect 'su' though. It sounds like it's a bug in the GUI app.12:16
Dr_willisshinichi,  i run my ubuntu system totally from external usbs befor without needing easybcd. I just have to tell the pc to boot the usb. and a black screen could be a 'nomodeset' type issue.12:16
Dr_willisshinichi,  do you see the grub menu when you boot the external disk?12:17
shinichihow could i fix it then?12:17
Dr_willisDeltaHeavy,  thats why i asked if he could login to the console.. but he never replied...12:17
shinichierr, no, only black screen12:17
Dr_willisshinichi,  it try the fixgrub factoid tips and seeif you can get grub installed to the usb. it may be it just failed to install right.12:17

MrUnagihow can i run a bash script at boot as root?12:36
ZuLLyim not so sure about this unity business12:36
MonkeyDustmafiaboy  maybe add the icons to the hidden folder ~/.icons -- havent tried it, tho12:36
fidel!notunity12:36
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 !classic12:36
mafiaboyi tried it but after that what to do :MonkeyDust12:37
fidelmafiaboy: the pure install doenst need gnome-tweak-tool12:37
MonkeyDustZuLLy  you're free to not use it, like myself12:37
MrUnagi!upstart12:37
ubottuUpstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/12:37

MonkeyDustDeltaHeavy  maybe try to reduce the number of sub-directories, 8 does not sound healthy to me12:40
alankiladid gimp 2.8 get the improved internal representations already, or is it still something for the future? I mean, each channel as 32-bit floating point value12:40
DeltaHeavyfidel: I found GNOME 2 to be far more usable than GNOME 2 fallback mode12:40
MrUnagi!runlevel12:40
ubottuIn Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.12:40

ubottuFraz: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter13:25
gulzarFraz: install boot-manager and change the resolution.13:25
tyler_dhow do you turn off NetworkManager without it coming back up automagically in 12.04 64 please?13:26
charly_Hi all. Tell me how to turn on the printer color profile icm, which is the directory usr / share / color / icc. Xubuntu 12.0413:26
Frazit was fine before13:26
Abhijittyler_d, killall networkmanager13:26
gulzarFraz: sorry.. its startup manager13:26
MonkeyDusttyler_d  remove it from the startup applications13:26
Frazas i said, the computer went off mid upgrade13:26
xskydevilxHow would I upgrade the kernel on 11.04 easily to the newest one available? Like the new 3.x ones?13:26
gulzarFraz: its ok.. sometimes it happens try startup-manager. It is the first thing I install and correct that black screen13:27
tyler_dMonkeyDust: how do you stop it without removing it from startup please?13:27
Abhijittyler_d, killall networkmanager13:27
Mionxskydevilx: backports13:27
tyler_dAbhijit: and it should say something such as sudo killall NetworkManager... but then it immediately starts up again13:27
Abhijittyler_d, sudo killall networkmanager13:27
IntuitiveNipplewillwork4foo: Use a loop and get the name of the directory using NEWDIR=$(basename ${FILENAME%*.})13:28
Frazok thanks13:28
MonkeyDusttyler_d  try pkill networkmanager, but if you don't want it to come back, you have to remove it from startup application13:28
MonkeyDusts13:28
IntuitiveNippleFraz: Is that Dan?13:28
xskydevilxMion, I beg your pardon?13:28
Fraznot that im aware of:P13:28

IntuitiveNippleOK ... I know a 'Fraz' that is always having Ubuntu problems  :p13:29
Frazlol13:29
Fraznow you know 2:P13:29
IntuitiveNippleFraz: Uhoh!13:29
MonkeyDusttyler_d  have you removed it from startup apps?13:29
xskydevilxMion, And how would I do that?13:29
tyler_dMonkeyDust: I just outlined that I don't want it removed from startup apps, I simply want to know how to stop it when required13:30
IntuitiveNippleFraz: Sounds like, at start-up you need to hold the Shift key down to get to the GRUB bootloader menu, and try one of the recovery kernels13:30
tyler_d:p13:30
AbhijitMonkeyDust, how will he get it back on startup if he removes it from startup?13:30
Mionxskydevilx: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBackports https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports etc13:30
MonkeyDusttyler_d  Abhijit not sure what you want: you want it to come back, but you don't want it to come back13:31
xskydevilxMion, No luck so far. Can't I just get a generic kernel and upgrade it manually?13:31
AbhijitMonkeyDust, he want it bak ON startup13:32
tyler_dMonkeyDust: when I kill hte proc from term, it starts back up, I do not want that.13:32

as001hi my usb modem hspa data card for my mobile internet does not work in 12.04 and it worked in 11.10 without problems. Can you help me with this issue ?13:34
xskydevilxIntuitiveNipple, So, in a nutshell, I would just download stuff from here: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ and upgrade it for Natty.13:34
as001i can see it in lsusb as: Bus 001 Device 004:  ID 1bbb:000 T & A Mobile Phones13:35
as001but I can't see it under Network Connections and I can't configure anything13:35
tyler_ddoes anyone know how to stop the NetworkManager from a terminal please?13:36

xskydevilxWhat does "Sync to VBlank" mean?14:27
rebournllutz i try localhost:81 from ubuntu (base system) not inside the pbxware14:28
llutzrebourn: how should that work? localhost is local host, not guest14:28
IntuitiveNipplexskydevilx: it prevents display tearing at higher resolutions14:28
llutzrebourn: you have to use the vms external ip14:29
rebournlocal host meaning my local_IPadress:8114:29
obscurant1stsomebody?14:29
xskydevilxIntuitiveNipple, And therefore can limit FPS, right?14:29
rebournllutz how do i find out the external IP?14:29
MonkeyDustrebourn  is that ipv6?14:29
llutzrebourn: inside vm, ifconfig14:29
IntuitiveNipplerebourn: localhost means the IP address 127.0.0.1 - it is ONLY accessible from the SAME HOST14:29
rebournipconfig or ifconfig14:29
llutzrebourn: and if you need to access the vm from the host-system, you should use bridged-networking for the guest14:30

drcodehi all14:34
IntuitiveNipplerebourn: If you're trying to access the virtual machine from a machine other than the host, you'll need to add a static route your network router or each device that needs to access it, something like ip route add 10.0.2.0/24 via IP.OF.HOST.OF.VM14:34

LuUserhey all i'm running lubuntu 12.04...i set up pgp keys in passwords and keys (seahorse) but how do i encrypt/decrypt messages?  when i right click on a text file i dont see the encryption options14:38
llutzrebourn: start "VirtualBox" and check the vm config14:38
theadminobscurant1st: If you're running gnome-shell, then the only sane way for shutdown I know is via GDM, that is, log out and... well14:38
llutzIntuitiveNipple: that's not needed if vbox is configured to use bridged-networking (vmnet does all that)14:39
obscurant1sttheadmin: well, I can power ff if I press alt without logging out14:39
rebournllutz: NAT is chosen, bridged adapter is an option if that is what you mean14:39

obscurant1sttheadmin: But I would like to know if there is anyway to change that suspend to power off. As of now, "suspend" changes to power off if I press alt14:40

wookienzguys need some help with an upstart job. I have created a script and placed it in /etc/init/ however it doesnt run on boot. Infact even when booted and trying to TAB autocomplete in the /etc/init dir it doesnt see it.14:40
solsTiCehi. It seems I can't resize the icons of the unity launcher in 12.04. is it because it considers that every screen with 1024x768 reso must be a touch screen and don't need icon resizing ??14:40
wookienzdo i need to update anything after placing it there?14:40
theadminobscurant1st: I see, uh, that's a rather awkward key combo. Anyway, you can create a launcher for something like this: dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest="org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit" /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Stop14:40

vbajpaiI compiled and installed a software (let's say foo) from source, it got installed at /usr/local/foo, i am interested in foo/bin, foo/include, foo/lib, how do I make the system learn of the files within these directories? manually symlinking /usr/local/{bin, include, lib}/{each item} -> /usr/local/foo/{bin, include, lib}/{each time} seems tedious16:00

gulzarPici: Hello. Remember I asked about creating symlinks. Here is what I wanted to do. Exactly what I wanted to have. When Main.sh is launched it shows this http://imagebin.org/211847 . When Accessories is clicked it shows this http://imagebin.org/211848 . Clicking on Arrow takes back to Main screen and so on it works. It is little bit like KDE-search-plasma .. just without search bar (thinking of adding that also) and much less RAM and CPU usage.16:17
Cyonxadd 'XChat IRC' to the end of the whitelist string. I then had to do an alt-f2 "unity --replace" to get it to take effect.16:17

idiot_is there a way to transfer usrs?17:07

IntuitiveNippleunperson: invincible_ That program really ought to have beeen statically linked if it is to be widely distributed, not rely on system libraries if it is that particular about the supported ABI17:07
IntuitiveNippleidiot_: All of /etc/  some of /var/ all of /usr/local/ all of /home/, config from /boot/grub/17:08
unpersonIf you downloaded http://archive.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/gcc-2.95/libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2_2.95.4-27_i386.deb you could try installing it.  I think you should just be able to find the file and double clikc on it.  That should start GDebi to install the package.17:08
invincible_@unperson: Yes Sir, I did. But I have no idea how to install it..17:08
Jerusalem420my samba just stopped working.17:08
lusersidiot_: /opt (if you have any)17:08
unpersoninvincible_, But there's a good chance it will not work.17:08
IntuitiveNippleunperson: I'm concerned, if invincible_ installs that libc .deb package it could replace some existing system library symlinks17:09
IntuitiveNippleunperson: which might render the system unhappy to say the least17:09
arooni-mobileIntuitiveNipple, what of /var/  ?  ;i'm doing something similar tomomrrow17:09
unpersonIntuitiveNipple, Yes, that's possible.  I thought it would warn him first.  No?17:09
unpersoninvincible_, Hold on a second.17:09
ringeHi, I really need some input: My log files are empty, should I worry?17:10
x-ipwhat program can i use so my workmates can control my machine connectin by the local lan and i can keep working without notice that ? i mean, if i activate vnc server with 'vino' app, they can use my machine but they disturb me while i'm programming17:10
unpersonIntuitiveNipple, Also, you're of course right that they should have statically linked the library.17:10
invincible_IntuitiveNipple & unperson: Sure Sir.17:10
x-ipthe idea is they connect to my machine in a new session17:10
IntuitiveNippleunperson: I'm not sure if it would warn ... running dpkg -i is pretty clear you want to upgrade/downgrade a package, after all17:11

K4kwhen installing libnss-ldapd you get a tui to select the LDAP lookups that will be enabled. How can you get to this same window without uninstalling and re-installing libnss-ldapd?17:11
dr_willisx-ip:  vncserver. or ssh with.x forwarding17:11
dr_willisx-ip:  not vino17:11
x-ipdr_willis, 'vino' is a vnc server right ?17:11
jpdsx-ip: Or xpra.17:11
unpersonIntuitiveNipple, True.  Yes, I agree that replacing libstdc++ would be bad.  I thought it would not overwrite any existing files installed by apt/dpkg without a warning, but I may be wrong.17:11
