Jordan_Ujohn3voltas: Wubi is the Windows Based Ubuntu Installer. It creates an ext4 disk image file on your Windows partition and sets up ntldr/BCD to boot from it allowing you to have a full Ubuntu installation without any repartitioning or changing of the MBR. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/install-ubuntu-with-windows00:00
TomatoKetchupMrGizmo757, sorry I couldn't be of much help00:00
psusiring1, I thought the cd was staying the same, but they were adding a new image that was to be around 1+gb, smaller than dvd but larger than cd00:00
MrGizmo757well you helped some.  i went from no emails at all  to emails.   just need to work out this secure connction error.00:01
L3top!cookie | TomatoKetchup00:01
ubottuTomatoKetchup: Wow! You're such a great helper, you deserve a cookie!00:01
MrGizmo757i have an idea.  ill wait until my wife gets done on on her windows laptop.  and i will get thunderbird up on that and compare the advanced settings.00:02
john3voltasJordan_U, as said, i can't install linux or anything suspicious like wubi. all i need is a boot parameter to tell the kernel where to find the filesystem squashfs.00:02
TomatoKetchuplol thanks00:02
L3topIt is cumulative00:02
Jordan_Ujohn3voltas: I don't know what kernel parameter that would be, sorry.00:02
bennypr0fanehello, I have a wlan problem, 12.04 doesn't recognize my chip it's a broadcomm 43xx00:02
L3topeverytime I pop in here today you are fixing.00:02
L3topthats good stuff00:02
MrGizmo757becuase it works fine on the windows machine so  if i can match my settings under ubuntu  to the way its sets itself up under windows maybe it will work.00:02
TomatoKetchupMrGizmo757, good deal, did you check the thunderbird error console?00:03
john3voltasJordan_U, do you mean the kernel parameters are not documented?00:03
TomatoKetchupMrGizmo757,  Tools > Error console, see if there is anything helpful in there.00:03
Jordan_Ujohn3voltas: The may or may not be documented. If they are documented then I don't know where to find them.00:03
ActionParsnipjohn3voltas: what are you wanting to achieve with the boot option?00:03
MrGizmo757there are two erros marked in red00:04

john3voltasActionParsnip, i want to boot ubuntu in a frugal way. just vmlinuz+initrd+filesystem.squashfs from my hdd instead of from a livecd00:04
MrGizmo757and the other says  attribute deprecated00:04
ActionParsnipjohn3voltas: add the boot option:   text00:05
MrGizmo757ok heres somthing.   i have Chrome installed as my browser. and one of the logs says   Could not read chrome manifest 'jar:file:    so maybe its trying to do somthing with chrome that is messing things up.00:06

bennypr0faneI removed bcmwl-kernel-source, broadcom-sta-common, and broadcom-sta-source,00:07

ubottubgamari the assumption when you ask "how do I send a signal" is that you have a working system: The XY problem is when you need to do X, and you think you can use Y to do X, so you ask about how to do Y, when what you really should do is state what your X problem is.

lorecasteroh, that was when i was trying to figure out my NVIDIA issues.01:16
lorecasteri've been in and out of terminal since 17:0001:17

escottif you can get a clean shutdown you might be able to figure out what is going on during the boot by checking the logs. there is also the bootchart utility. you could install that within a chroot, boot it and let it hang and then sysrq out and that might give some details on what is going on01:18
Sheldon23Looks like that's when it's happened.01:19
ActionParsniplorecaster: do you have the root account enabled?01:19
lorecasterI am always logged in as a user, and only EVER access terminal as SUDO when necessary01:19
lorecasterotherwise, all else is default.01:19
bgamariescott: The terminal just shows the result of fsck on /01:19
lorecasteri never mess with users.01:19
Sheldon23Is your password easily guessed?01:19
caesar__what's the best theme manager (iyo) for 10.0401:19
bgamariescott: and some warnings from rpcbind which are due to another bug01:20
ActionParsnipcaesar__: there is one built in...01:20
Sheldon23Was Firewall enabled?  You can check under Admin-Firewall.01:20
ActionParsnipcaesar__: or myunity can do it01:20
lorecasterit's an english pronounciation of a japanese word. all letters, not found in english, 8 characters.01:20
bgamariescott: Yes, sysrq works. swapper is running01:20
lorecastercheck how?01:21
bgamariescott: which makes sense since the harddisk is going wild01:21
caesar__ActionParsnip: are you talking about the appearance preferences?01:21
Sheldon23Click Administration -- Firewall.  See if i's enabled.01:21
escottbgamari, im not sure what i can do but refer you to the logs. i dont know what would be happening at that point in the boot01:21
lorecasterusing gnome301:21
ActionParsnipcaesar__: sure, or myunity under the theme tab01:21
lorecasterI don't have the original gnome pulldowns01:21
bgamariescott: Is there no way to kill the task?01:22
escottbgamari, how do you know what task it is01:22
caesar__ActionParsnip: this is 10.04... i dont have unity01:22
Sheldon23Okay.  Can you go to program list, and type "firewall"01:22
bgamariescott: Point taken; I suppose it's asynchronous01:22
Sheldon23by clicking on that button on the top left (forgot what it's called)01:22
lorecasternothing appears01:22
ActionParsnipcaesar__: then there is the appearence app in the menus01:22
Sheldon23and searching for "firewall"01:22
lorecasterI never installed anything of firewall yet (new install)01:22
bgamariescott: There's no way to convince upstart to spawn a shell to investigate from?01:23
caesar__so default theme manager is better than emerald or gstyles?01:23
escottbgamari, you can always change to boot to recovery but thats a different boot process01:23
escottbgamari, its either a normal boot or it isnt01:23
ActionParsnipcaesar__: its in the default install, it wil therefore gel with the OS as that is it's job01:23
Sheldon23Hmm.  Okay, bottom line looks like there's been some unauthorized root access.  Best thing to do is full reinstall, strong password, diff from previous, enable Firewall, perform security updates.01:24
bgamariescott: sysrq-f killed it01:24
bgamariescott: It's continuing to boot so hopefully I'll know which task it was soon01:24
bgamariescott: It was apparently find presumably started by mounted-tmp01:25
lorecasterunderstood. I really appreciate it. I thought people didn't hack linux. I'm just a home-user with no other reason to be hacked other than random chance... Cable modem, static IP maybe? could pose a problem?01:25
bgamariescott: huh, /tmp must be huge on this machine. weird01:26
_ProtekNickzanyone know how to get the Ubuntu-Tweak working, meaning the LogonSetting, all Disabled right after installing it? and i can't figure it out01:26
Sheldon23Well, even if Linux is generally more secure than Windows, any system without Firewall enabled and a strong password is susceptible.01:26
lorecasterunderstood. I shall do a fresh-install. my keyboard issues appear to have resolved.01:27

lorecasterhow do i turn it off?01:28
lorecasterI never use SSH01:28
_ProtekNickzservice ssh stop01:29
lorecasterpermanent? even after restart?01:29
Sheldon23Try typing this into terminal to check if root account was enabled accidentally: sudo cat /etc/shadow01:29
ActionParsniplorecaster: it's not installed by default, you can uninstall openssh-server if you don't use it01:29
wifioregonMy friend wants to install ubuntu on an old netbook but doesn't have a USB flash drive. Is there any other way he can install?01:29
Sheldon23If root shows a "!" instead of an encrypted password, then root account's been enabled somehow.01:30
_ProtekNickzBurn it to CD01:30
ActionParsnipwifioregon: USB CD driver, SD card01:30
ActionParsnipwifioregon: PXE boot if you can setup a PXE server01:30
wifioregonthanks.. I didnt think about the SD card01:30
Xirrinlorecaster: I have to agree with what was mentioned here earlier. The ONLY way that you know 100% that you are secure is a full reformat, a new STRONG password that you share with no one, and turning off all remote access that isn't actively needed while keeping those that you do need as secure as possible (HTTPS instead of HTTP, SSH v2 instead of v2, running firewall, etc)01:31
_ProtekNickzAnyone know how to get the Ubuntu-Tweak working, meaning the LogonSetting, all Disabled right after installing it? and i can't figure it out01:31
ActionParsnip_ProtekNickz: i don't believe  ubuntu tweak is supported here, its a 3rd party app01:32
Xirrinlorecaster: Also, something to consider is if you're wired or wireless. Wireless is not nearly as secure as people want to believe it is, even with all the "bells and whistles" turned on.01:32
_ProtekNickzi realised that, but was just asking for some friendly advice01:32
Sheldon23_ProtekNickz, Add the ppa. Refresh package list, and install.01:33
Sheldon23_ProtekNickz, http://www.noobslab.com/2011/12/install-ubuntu-tweak-06-on-ubuntu-1204.html01:33

blitzkrieg79i'm building a domain controller for windows boxes out of an ubuntu server, but i think i don't have to use ubuntu server to get it done, can anyone confirm or deny this?02:15
blitzkrieg79meaning i could probably do the same job with regular ubuntu as opposed to ubuntu server02:15
escottblitzkrieg79, sure its all just packages you could start with minimal and build up or start with desktop and add server02:16
blitzkrieg79cool, because its going to be a virtualbox on a freebsd machine02:16
blitzkrieg79and for the life of me i can't find a working link i can use to download an iso for ubuntu server with wget02:16
blitzkrieg79but i can find one for regular ubuntu all day02:17
blitzkrieg79the machine in question has no opticals02:17
Timothyblitzkrieg79, you can get the same job done, but the server install will give you a slimmer install - more resources dedicated to the task, less to a gui02:17

wormmdSome craziness happened the other day: I fired up vim, updated my .Xresources file with some crazy terminal colors, ran xrdb .Xresources, opened vim back up, and noticed that my terminal color changes apparently blew away my vim colorscheme. So I changed them to something else, ran xrdb .Xresources again, and opened .Xresources in vim again. The terminal colors were back to normal, but the colors were the same wacky colors I had changed from, but other file02:48

ms-daisyHello. What's the best way to get Flash working in Firefox 12.0? Right now it's using 100% CPU.  Is Flash-Aid the best option?02:49
wormmdTimothy: when I open .Xresources with vim, the old crazy terminal colors are applied. When I open .config/awesome/rc.lua, my vim colorscheme is respected.02:50
wormmdthe point is, only ,Xresources is weird. Other script files get properly highlighted.02:51
Timothywormmd: can't really help you unfortunately...I'm too lazy to change my colors as 95% of my linux work is client/server admin related.  interested to hear how it works out tho...02:53
Timothycaesar, i'm assuming you've cleared your cache and all that wonderful stuff?02:53
wormmdTimothy: just had a thought: I changed the colors. Wonder what happens if I remove the color lines entirely.02:54
Timothywormmd: taking it back to the defaults & building it back up slowly? you may have a conflict b/n the two (although I'm just shooting in the dark here...again, not an SME here.)02:55

Sheldon23oziBlindSight, If you've made a backup, the easiest thing would be to do a fresh install from a cd or usb.04:50
vexati0nthree18ti_: when you install that, the init script isn't called dhcp3-server04:50
vexati0ni forget what it's called but it's something else... pretty sure it has 'dhcp' in there somewhere tho. list the contents of /etc/init.d/ and look through it04:50

Sheldon23oziBlindSight, Looks like the package "upstart-job" is the problem. Install it individually "sudo apt-get install upstart-job" and then run apt-get dist-upgrade.04:58
grendal-primeand so your interface would come up and udev want to assign it like eth1 instead of eth004:58

combusterhi, anyone have a lot of dropped packets on a wired network on 12.04 ? I've changed to different NIC's (R8169 and e1000) and changed the cable, restarted the router and I still get them05:07
combuster RX packets:10605 errors:0 dropped:62 overruns:0 frame:005:07
grendal-primecombuster, that sounds disenchanting05:08
ubottuUse hostname <somehostname> to set the hostname, or to do it permanently: edit /etc/hosts to include BOTH the old and new hostname and then change /etc/hostname to the new one. WARNING! Make sure that your current hostname and /etc/hosts match, otherwise sudo may not work properly.05:09

myersg2 gb, but the os only reads 1.7, and it normaly uses 1.205:33

mongothat will use 2d accelerated menues etc..05:49
L3topsSilversong: I do not understand your reasoning. I mean... I don't have to... but I believe that you are better off installing the supported version. You should, frankly, have a notifier in desktop which tells you that the third party driver is available.05:49

crizisand whatever it is running, you can edit with crontab -e06:10
glioroscrizis: ok it is running. the statistics still not working. many people has problems with statistics on plesk which in installed on ubuntu and PLESK cannot give an answer06:11
criziswell, plesk is a commercial closed panel so they should give support for it06:12
crizisnot really an ubuntu issue06:12
bkerensaglioros: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CronHowto <-- has some helpful information on cronjobs06:12
bkerensaglioros: thats a server matter you might try #ubuntu-server or contact plesk which provides support for their platform06:12
flowerpotglioros, don't forget to confirm whether cron is really running by executing ps -C cron or ps -ef | grep cron06:13
gliorosi will change host. enough i am tired with them. my advice is stay away from plesk. 10 years i was with cpanel and i never had problems. with plesk i always have problems.06:13

bkerensaglioros: if you need support for Server/VPS/Cloud please feel free to try and seek that support in #Ubuntu-Server however proprietary platforms should be supported by the vendor in this case Plesk is supported by Parrelels or your provider.06:17

Tamoxini mean linux comunity06:30
dr_willisbit of a slow time of day in this channel rightnow.  2:30 am in  the USA06:31
Silversongwhat's the difference between Ctrl+Alt+F2 and Ctrl+Alt+F1?06:31
flowerpotSilversong, one of them gives you virtual tty106:31
flowerpotthe other gives you virtual tty206:31
dr_willisSilversong:  differnt consoles you mean? you normally have 6 of them, f1 through F606:31
gliorosguys i am not able to run this command /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/statistics –calculate-all any ideas why ?06:31
Silversongoh dang. which one exits the X server?06:31
Tamoxinctrl +alt+f2 its to execute something06:31
SilversongI'm trying to install a proprietary driver06:31
dr_willisSilversong:  nonee of them.06:32
dr_willisYou can use commands TO kill X from them06:32
dr_willisalt-ctrl-f7 is the x server display06:32
Tamoxini have  tried to install ubuntu in my netbook but i cant06:32
dr_williswhat are you trying to install exactly Silversong06:32
flowerpotSilversong, the virtual tty's are independent virtual consoles.  think of them as little monitors plugged into your computer.  you can run any commands from any virtual tty; linux won't care06:32
Silversongso sudo service lightdm stop ?06:32
Tamoxini restar my netbook and thers only a black screen06:33
Silversongdr_willis I'm trying to install my NVIDIA prop. driver06:33
dr_willisSilversong:  that should stop lightdm and x.06:33
flowerpotTamoxin, do you have an nvidia video card?06:33
dr_willisSilversong:  you HAVe used the drivers in the repos first?06:33
Silversongwhat you mean, and what's repos?06:33
Tamoxinall my netbook is intel06:33
* Silversong is noob here.06:33
dr_willisSilversong:  you DONT want to just 'go to the nvidia site and ge their ,run file' its most likely not  needed06:34
dr_willisthere should have been a dialog when you logged in about the restricted drivers.06:34
flowerpotSilversong, repo = repository = apt-get repository.  apt-get is a package manager used in ubuntu, which manages the installation/update/uninstallation of packages (=software such as drivers) to your system.06:34
dr_willisgo to your X desktop. run 'jockey-gtk' and see what drivers it suggests and can auto install for  you06:34
Tamoxincan u help me please?06:35
dr_williseveryone has been MS trained to go to a web site and get stuff.. thats availiavble in the package manager. :)06:35

Silversongflowerpot: thanks :) learning something new everyday06:36
Tamoxinmy problem its that ubuntu live usb dont show me the start up screen06:36
dr_willisSilversong:  thats the terminal command06:36
Silversongso I should go run jockey-gtk now?06:36
Tamoxinsorry for my english guys06:36
dr_willisSilversong:  and its Not ./whatever  its just 'jockey-gtk'06:37
dr_willisSilversong:  in the menuis its called 'addational drivers' i belive06:37
flowerpotTamoxin, do you see anything before the blank screen?06:37
flowerpotWhat do you see?06:37
Silversong"No proprietary drivers are in use on this system."06:37
Tamoxina kind of words06:37
Tamoxinbut they06:38
dr_willisand does it suggest insgtalling some?06:38
Silversongdr_willis ^That's what I got earlier from clicking on Additional Drivers within System Settings06:38
Tamoxinwait i dont know how to say it06:38
Silversongdr_willis: No it doesn't say anything else06:38
Silversongwithin terminal it got some 'icon_set != NULL' failed06:38

Tamoxinthe words dissapear too fast06:38
Tamoxinas fast than i cant read it06:39
flowerpotTamoxin, try restarting your computer.  Hold down SHIFT the entire time.06:39
* woozly nice06:39
Tamoxinwith the usb plugged in?06:39
flowerpotThat will probably bring you to a menu -- probably the menu for GRUB, which is a bootloader.06:39

goddardif i have a lost icon meaning it doesn't have a binary file attached to it how can i remove it?06:42

WaraudonThe optical drive was causing things to hang up somehow06:43

Tamoxinmaybe i dint explain me06:43
Tamoxinwhat i want to do is to star ubuntu as a live cd to install it but06:44
dr_willisbrand new laptops are normally the most problematic things to install ubuntu on.06:44
Tamoxini start it in my usb06:44
goddardunless its those new dells06:44
dr_willisTamoxin:  the live cd has a nomodeset option thjjat can helpo you if the graphics is not correct.06:44
ubottuA 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 parameter06:44

SilversongSo yes I do see NVIDIA06:48
bigpapaanyone know a good howto for getting 2 video adapters and 2 monitors working, i guess as two different desktops? i tried the command lines for two monitors but it doesn't see the second video card06:49
Tamoxini should see this image http://img827.imageshack.us/img827/3509/dgfdgrunningoraclevmvir.png06:49
Tamoxinbut i cant06:49
dr_willisSilversong:  look again.. there is BOTH an intel and an nnvidia. so id bet it is one of those Optimus setups06:49
flowerpotTamoxin, I don't know what to say.  Did you verify the md5 hash of the livecd installation media?06:50
dr_willisbigpapa:  2 differnt  video card/chipsets? what chipsets?06:50
Tamoxinwhats that?06:50
bigpapaDr_willis: amd HD 6850 video cards06:50
Silversongdr_willis: Does that mean I have two video cards and I'm using the crappy one of the two?06:51
dr_willisbigpapa:  2 ati cards.. :) at least its not an ati and an nvidia..  I dont know how well ati supports multi ccard/monitor setups - ive only done it with nvidia, rarely06:51

goddarddr_willis: where are those at buddy?06:51
j605network manger reports wifi is disabled by hardware switch06:51
flowerpotTamoxin, my suggestion would be to try re-downloading the livecd06:52
dr_willisgoddard:  try 'locate .desktop' there are tons of them.06:52
Silversongdr_willis: I see. So I should install a proprietary driver for THAT instead, right?06:52
dr_willisSilversong:  intel drivers are included by default. :)06:52
dr_willisSilversong:  thats why intel is so awsome..06:52
Tamoxini had downloaded it trhee times06:52
Silversongdr_willis: Hehe, I like Intel as well06:53
flowerpotTamoxin, try a livecd - not a liveusb06:53
dr_willisTamoxin:  verify the downloads. if they dont verify.. no point in going on..06:53
Silversongdr_willis: So I should just get a proprietary driver for that? Or is there one? What can I do to get my computer run Unity 3D?06:53
Tamoxinonce the alternate version and twice the normal version06:53
Tamoxini cant use live cd cuz i have a netbook06:54
dr_willisSilversong:  intel drivers are included by default. :)  there IS no proptiatry driver for them06:54
Tamoxinthis is a headhache cuz there is no problem whit other distributions like linux mint06:54
dr_willisSilversong:  my netbook does 3d using the normal drivers on intel hardware06:54
Tamoxinbut i dont like it06:54
Silversongdr_willis: Ha. Yes. I clicked on the NVIDIA X Server Settings, and it said "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.06:54

dr_willisthere MAY be updated intel drivers you can get.. but with a laptop that just came out last week it may be too new for them.07:00
dr_willisSilversong:  so i say check the forums and askubuntu.com for info about that exact make of laptop07:01
gh0stn0teSorry, i ve confused this chan with #ubuntu-it, anyway: Someone have got some problem with a "Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd." "RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller" on LMDE? the card seems to work nicely but its like it freeze (no ping, no troughtput) wireshark also stops to log packet when this happens, anybody have got a similar issue? how do I control the driver module? there are some alternative drivers to use for that?07:01
dr_willisSilversong:  its also  possible you can disable the intel. and enable the nvidia in the bios.07:01
gh0stn0te Thanks!07:01

dr_willisEarliest irc i recall was in about 1986  -  was on bbs;s befor that,07:51
BlackWebcant really remember, going through my installed packages to try to find it,07:51
alusionanyways, dr_willis do you happen to know where tomboy notes are saved? Or perhaps how I can search for something from the terminal ? (could improve my skills in searching)07:51

dr_willisthe deveelopment of that  tool is progessing at a very very rapiid pace is whats going on Silversong08:07

dr_willisSilversong:  if you read the artical.. it says that nvidia the company is not supporting it.. so all this bumblebee stuff and so forth has been created by the linux community..  not 'nvidia'08:11
tarzeaudoes unity work with 1204 for multimonitor setups, for anyone?08:11
Silversongwell yeah I know, but as long as it works, right?08:11
dr_willisSilversong:  so 'they' as in 'nvidia' still are being jerks about it as far as ive read,    ;)08:11
dr_willisno... they NEED to support linux..08:11
Silversongcuz MOST of the people in this world are NOOBS08:12
dr_willisI am going intel for my next laptop i imagine.08:12

dr_willisnvidia and ati both give a lot of lip-service to linux. but then just shrug us off.08:12

dr_willisi got a $150 netbook i got on clerance at xmas time. :)08:13
dr_willisgave my Big-monster 20lb gaming laptop to my  brother08:13

crizishandling dual intel/nvidia cards i think08:26
KM0201oh ok08:26
Silversongmy laptop has 2 video cards, one nVIDIA and one Intel08:26

JosssseHello Everybody. Yesterday I was working on an article, took a pause and then turned on my computer again. To my surprise, the .tex file disappeared. I'm pretty sure it was ubuntu ones fault. Is there some sort of back up tools which saves files I chose every, say 5 minutes, so I can have a sort of history of changes?08:33
RawProducealtin: you should be able to setup an ad-hoc network08:33
JosssseMaybe even a gedit module.08:33
altinRawProduce, but If I do that I get disconnected form the network I am getting internet from08:34
RawProducemaybe try and bridge the connections?08:34
auronandaceJosssse: welcome to cloud computing08:34
RawProduceJosssse: you could always setup a git repo and have a daemon commit every 5 minutes xD08:35
Josssseauronandace, :)08:35
JosssseRawProduce, What is a git repo?08:35
RawProduceJosssse: git is a version control system - software developers use it08:36
MatCatHey, I am running Ubuntu 12.04 LTE, and for some reason my ability to change background images has stopped working, the settings program runs fine, but the background does not change, any ideas?08:36
RawProduceit's trivial to setup, though08:36

=== griselda is now known as spex971
chuJosssse: Not a programmer, but I have my whole `~/Documents/' directory in a git repo on a USB stick I have. I just "push" new changes to the stick (about every week) and "pull" them onto a separate computer when I want them updated. Keeps the sets of files consistent. Much easier than emailing myself a change everytime I update the file.08:39
Jossssechu, do you recommend a git for me?08:40
JosssseWould it be a good Idea to have it run every five minutes?08:40
REK_007is there a way to add the DVD ISO as a repo on ubuntu ?08:41
chuJosssse: I *do* recommend git. It's not an issue to set up, and has some really nice tools available. I do the pushes manually, but you could run it every 5 minutes (if you wrote a naive script, it could be a bit painful)08:42
Jossssechu, heh, Git is the git. Sorry.08:42
KM0201REK_007: an ISO? probably.08:42
KM0201you'd have to mount the ISO, then add it to your repository list08:42
REK_007KM0201: yeah an ISO08:43
REK_007KM0201: i have mounted the ISO on /cdrom08:43
Jossssechu, What do you mean by naive script, could be painful??08:43
KM0201ok, what happens when you try to add it to synaptic?08:43
REK_007but sources still dont recognize it08:43
RawProduceJosssse: if your information is not sensitive, you could use github - they host git repositories (repo's) for free08:43
chuJosssse: Well, presumably you'd only want to issue the push if the file had actually changed. In a naive script, you probably wouldn't take that into account.08:44
REK_007when i try add volume on sources it says "Could not find a suitable CD." KM020108:44
JosssseRawProduce, Thanks!08:44
RawProducechu: "git push" on a repo with no changes yields "Everything up-to-date"08:45
RawProduceI don't think that's as much of an issue as you expect08:45
KM0201REK_007: http://askubuntu.com/questions/4694/how-to-use-a-iso-image-as-a-cd-rom-repository08:45
chuRawProduce: Yep, but if you were running that every 5 minutes it's stealing your valuable cpu cycles08:45
Jossssechu, I'll check git out I think It'll do the job. I was actually thinking about writing a perl process which did the job, it wouldn't be sooo hard.08:45
JosssseBut I think git is exactly what I need.08:45
chuJosssse: Git is pretty amazing.08:46
REK_007KM0201: i tried that only didnt work .. so came on IRC08:46

REK_007yeah i tried all of them so far none have worked for me08:47
KM0201REK_007: have you tried juergen's instructions..   http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-19378.html   that looks more logicalt o me (if that doesn't work, i dunno)08:50
REK_007KM0201: I added the path manually ... Get:1 file: precise Release.gpg [198 B]  Get:2 file: precise Release [4,595 B]08:51
REK_007is this supposed to be working then?08:51
KM0201it looks like it.08:51
REK_007cool then :)08:51
KM0201REK_007: you got that when you ran apt-get update?08:52
REK_007yeah KM020108:52
JosssseRawProduce, That's nice but since i'm writing math stuff with latex i'm constantly saving and compiling. I wouldn't want the file to be backed up every time I save it. Just every five minutes, if it changes.08:52
KM0201then i would say it probably worked08:52
REK_007cool :)08:52
chuJosssse: Do you use LyX for LaTeX?08:52
KM0201REK_007: try disconnecting someething from the internet, and see if you can install something that is on the repo.08:53
Jossssechu, No. What's lyx?08:53
REK_007KM0201: yeah trying that08:53
RawProduceJosssse: you could store the last commit date in a file somewhere - when the file changes, compare the date in the file to the current one - if it's more than 5 minutes, commit/push. This way you save every 5 minutes only when there are changes08:53

dr_willisrico:  for somthing that specific. id think google would give faster rewults09:03
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 !classic09:03
alusionI have a 15 second clip, is it too long ?09:03

dr_willisGuest21613:  no idea. never wanted to. never tried,  You may want to check askubuntu,com about your left-click-save thing. ive never noticed that feature09:19
ikoniajust booted my laptop into single user mode with an NFS share missing09:20
lapion]try with a home fs missing09:20
lapionikonia now start up network or do a fsck09:20
Guest21613ok thank you dr_willis09:20
ikonialapion: thats not single user mode09:20
ikoniaif you start networking, it's not single user mode09:20
lapioneither way.. as soon as the system wants to do a fsck it doesn't continue09:21
Guest21613yeah it was always the same for windows and ubuntu but just changed for 12.04. seems crazy to reinstall 11 just because of keybinding issues09:21
lapionand single user networking is not multiuser networking09:21
Guest21613anyone else awake still?09:21
lapionI have to go into the shell start networking up and then do mount all fs read-write09:22
ikonialapion: what are you doing ?  I don't understand09:23
ikoniasingleuser + networking = multi user,09:23
ikoniawhy are you trying to start network, what is your end goal ?09:23
dr_willisi always just right click on links to do things to them09:23
lapionikonia, the problem is that if one of the filesystems in fstab is missing the system cannot be maintained in recovery mode09:25
ikoniait can09:25
ikoniaI'm just testing your /home issue09:25
dr_willisGuest21613:  seems to be some firefox extensions that do the alt-click save feature...09:26
Aggerhi all...ive got a problem with memory leaks on ubuntu 10.04 - i checked out processes and memory usage and noticed that gnome-panel was taking up 900MB (i have a top and bottom panel which are usually quite full with apps)...RAM usage was at around 90% at that point. I killed gnome-panel and after some 10 mintes the panels came up again (note gnome session was still alive all throughout) - problem is RAM is still at 90%...09:27
lapionikonia, did you do a cold start of the laptop ?09:27
lapionikonia, or did you simply revert to single user mode from multi-usermode ?09:27
ikonialapion: I'm doing it on a different machine, one moment,09:28
ikonialapion: I can't drop /home on my laptop, so I'm testing on a different machine,09:28
ikoniaI'll be with you in a moment09:28

ikonialapion: the nfs stuff, yes09:41
ikonialapion: just setting up changing /home now09:41
KM0201Steevca: what is the problem?09:41
Jossssechu, I get a error openin .nano_history file permission denied when i run git commit, why is git even wanting to open that file?09:41
lapionikonia, and you did select the fsck option from the menu ?09:42
ikonialapion: menu ? I just booted into single user mode, that's just a command prompt09:42
alusionwhat does sudo apt-get upgrade do for me that update doesn't?09:42
dr_willisalusion:  update  just gets the List of pacakges TO upgrade09:42
dr_willisupgrade does the real work09:43
chuJosssse: What directory did you initialise git in?09:43
dr_willisupdate the list, then upgrade the system09:43
lapionikonia by single user mode I meant system recovery mode.. which used to be the same as setting single at the grub prompt ..09:43
Steevca_KM0201: I gave a paste bin file.09:43
ikonialapion: recovery mode tries to be too clever, actually try single user mode09:44
alusionI am trying out upgrade then :o09:44
alusionAre there any other repositories one would recommend for ubuntu09:44
lapionwell yeah at the actual single user mode I have no problems doing fscks and other recovery thingies.. but I am not the only one using ubuntu out there09:44
KM0201alusion: i guess that would depend if somethying you want is not in th default repos09:45
ubottuCanonical's partner repositories provide packages a location for software vendors to publish applications. The repo itself can be added by running this in a !terminal: « sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner" »09:45
Jossssechu, home09:45
Steevca_I have a broken package i can't remove. I tried sudo apt-get remove,clean,autoremove,-f nothing works.09:45
ikonialapion: right, so the issue isn't with single user mode, it's with the recovery shell option09:46
chuJosssse: Not sure, but you could add the file .nano_history to the .gitignore file.09:46
KM0201Steevca: so what exactly is your problem w/ installing skype?09:46
lapionikonia, I'm sorry for confusing things..09:46
Steevca_KM0201: i get this http://pastebin.com/JZiNzLDV09:46
ikonialapion: you need to look at what/how the recovery shell works, where it depends on things, if you feel those dependencies are unreasonable, you'll log a bug09:47
ikonialapion: personally I don't think there should be a recovery shell09:47
KM0201Steevca: that looks like a problem w/ the package09:47
KM0201install it from the repositories... add the partner repo, and apt-get install skype09:47
Steevca_KM0201: How?09:48
Steevca_Give me the terminal command.09:48
KM0201!partner | Steevca then after you add the repository, sudo apt-get update  let it finish, then sudo apt-get upgrade09:48

ServerCrashhi i am facing issue with memory leakage10:11
ServerCrashif i run vlc, i see the memory usage constantly rising up10:11
ServerCrashhow can i debug which process is eating up memory10:12
ikoniaServerCrash: well, think about it, you run vlc, you see the memory rising10:12
ikoniayou don't run vlc, do you see the memory rising ?10:12
ikoniaServerCrash: ok, so by that baisc deduction, what is taking the ram10:13
ServerCrashbut when i run vlc, the memory used by VLC remains same10:13
ikoniaServerCrash: that's not surprising10:13
ServerCrashit doesnt change, but total memory used by system keeps increasing10:13
ikoniaServerCrash: ok, again, not massivly surprising10:13
ikoniakalle: only warning - stop now10:13
sirriffsalotHey guys! I'm on ubuntu 2d and wonder if it is still possible to roll up the window as default in Enlightenment?10:13
ServerCrashikonia, nothing to surprise here, what i am trying is to figure out whats consuming memory if not VLC10:14
ikoniakalle: this is an ubuntu technical discusion channel. Please keep to that topic10:14
ikoniaServerCrash: why do you think it's not vlc ?10:14
ikoniaServerCrash: you run vlc - memory goes up you don't run vlc, memory doesn't go up10:14
ServerCrashikonia, its related to VLC, but VLC app is not consuming directly10:14
ikonialook at it from that basic level...10:14
ikoniaServerCrash: that is not surprising10:14
kalleubuntu is using a PAE kernel what does it mean?10:14
sirriffsalotkalle: google:)10:14
ikoniaServerCrash: if an application is eating memory it can eat it without changing size10:14
ikoniasirriffsalot: don't tell people to google10:15
sirriffsalotikonia: why not?:P10:15
ikoniasirriffsalot: but that logic - google your own problem, good luck10:15
sirriffsalotikonia: I have, couldn't find anything;)10:15
ServerCrashikonia, thx, looking for better solution to figure out which specific application is using memory10:15
ikoniakalle: it's a a "large memory" kernel10:15
kallegoogle is evil i will never use it10:15
ikoniasirriffsalot: google better then10:15
kalleikonia ty10:15
ikoniakalle: google is not eveil - however, I have now answered your question10:15
ikoniaServerCrash: why are you not accepting that vlc is eating the memory10:16
ikoniaServerCrash: what makes you think it's not vlc ?10:16
ServerCrashbecause the VLC process is using constant memory, but for sure its causing issue to some of the system process, which is now eating up memory10:16
kallegoogle is evil they are monitoring everything u do on the web with a google widget on the site but lets keep to the topic10:16
ServerCrashso i need to figure out if its dbus or some other daemon thats eating up memory10:17

ikoniaServerCrash: well, the fact that it's keeping a constant memory size while system resources are being eaten, is a good sign that it's actually eating the memory10:17
ikoniaServerCrash: it's quite possible it's it's eating the ram to maintain it's size, hence why you don't see it change size10:17

kelvinellaikonia, ios4.3.310:27
ikoniakelvinella: I understand10:27
ikoniayou need to think hard about what has changed10:27
ikoniakelvinella: something must have changed on your ubuntu system or the phone for it to just stop working10:27
ikoniakelvinella: or try manually mounting it to get better debug out put10:27

StepNjumpIs there a way to find out all the files I opened yesterday and where they were located? Some kind of audit system?10:28

kelvinellaikonia, http://xrigher.info/linux/ubuntu/enable-usb-support-in-virtualbox/10:29
WotWhereikonia: thats right.. but there are other issues also.. ex. on starting Allsettings ---> additional drivers .. i get internal errors SegvFaults.. (which have been reported)10:29
ikoniaStepNjump: you can look at "access" time stamps, but it won't be valid10:29
ikoniakelvinella: I don't need to see the link10:29
kelvinellaikonia, i added none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=1001,devmode=664 0 0 to fstab10:29
ikoniaWotWhere: segfaults normally = hardware problems, which in your case I'd suggest memory / cpu problems10:29
kelvinellawould that affect the automount?10:29
ikoniaWotWhere: I'd run memcheck to do some tests10:29
StepNjumpthanks ikonia10:29
ikoniakelvinella: I don't blieve so, no10:29
kelvinellaikonia, but i delete it after10:30

kelvinellacantor, no change to firmware before can mount and cannot mount10:48
kelvinellame on 4.3.3 too10:49
ikoniayou're not on 4.3.310:49
ikoniayou are using a jailbroken firmware10:49
cantorI am.10:49
ikoniathat is modified10:49
cantorikonia, there is no difference10:49
cantorits not a flash of the firmware10:49
kelvinellaikonia,  but what about my non-jb ipod?10:49
cantorits identical.  All it does it sets a root password10:49
_skplcan someone help me? i cant get simplescan to recognise my scanner10:49
ikoniacantor: it does more than set a root password10:49
kelvinellaikonia, i never change my ipod setting and can not mount now10:49
ikoniakelvinella: has your ubuntu machine had any updates ?10:50
cantorthe pdf exploit allows one to change root, then you install their version of debian and cydia10:50
kelvinellaikonia, i keep update the ubuntu whenver it has new updates10:50
cantorit does not change the firmware, just installs apps and sets password10:50
kelvinellaikonia, like the kernel and stuffs10:50
ikoniakelvinella: right, so as I said before, updates can change the supportabilty of devices10:50
ikoniakelvinella: it very much depends on what versions of $X support versions $Y10:50
cantorkelvinella, you likely got screwed by an update10:51
ikoniakelvinella: apple is not a good platform for the support in linux10:51
huppensuhnI need some kind of encrypted, compressed and mountable file container. what I want to do: offsite backups, limited bandwith, very limited online storage space, sftp/scp, server and client run ubuntu 12.04. I don't want incremental backups, one copy that gets updated regularly is enough, rather synchronization than real backup. ideas I had so far: 1) duplicity. are duplicity's archives mountable? I'd have to do a full backup each10:51
huppensuhn time if i want to keep only one copy, right? 2) split and encrypted 7zip archive or similar on sshfs. are those mountable? does an archive update really only update changed files or would I have to retransmit more? 3) someone suggested compressed btrfs on cryptsetup here. does something like that work with an disk image rather than a disk? would this work? 4) rsync + encfs over sshfs, missing compression. other suggestions? what10:51
huppensuhn's the proper way to do something like that?10:51
FloodBot1huppensuhn: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.10:51
kelvinellaikonia, so how do i fix it?  ifuse?10:51
ikoniakelvinella: you can't, apple is a closed source product that offers zero linux support10:51
kelvinellaikonia, i install ifuse still no automount10:51
ikoniakelvinella: if the hacked support breaks, there is nothing you can do about it10:51
cantorhuppensuhn, truecrypt maybe10:51
kelvinellathen i guess i need to ssh10:51
huppensuhncantor: lacks compression, iirc10:52

gaelfxI've got a box running 12.04 using the NVidia drivers for graphics, and every time I reboot, the resolution is somehow automatically set to 1080i/50hz instead of 1920x1080/60hz, how can I fix it?10:58
vltWhen I run `aptitude install linux-image-generic` there’s a dialog that asks we whether to continue without installing GRUB to MBR. How can I run the aptitude command non-interactively. I want to answer YES to that question.10:59
vlt(from a script)10:59
gaelfxvlt: I think you need to use the --assume-yes option10:59
sirriffsalotgaelfx: how do you fix this exactly?11:00
sirriffsalotgaelfx: sorry, was away. the window border problem that is11:00
gaelfxsirriffsalot: every time I reboot, I have to open nvidia settings and change the refresh rate to 60hz then apply the settings11:01
StepNjumpikonia, I think I know what might have happened as to why my user id shows 1002... could it be because I was dumb the other day and despite the warning from gparted, I interupted a resizing of a partition?11:01

tchipHello, I wanna use Google Translate API to pick words in a list of English words and find the corresponding words in other languages and put them all in the same text file. What programming language do you think I should use?11:02
gaelfxI'm thinking it might be a problem with gnome-display-properties, but I've no idea where to find the config file or change it or stop it from loading11:03
sirriffsalotgaelfx: ah... Perhaps a bit useless, but have you tried google?:P11:03
gaelfxsirriffsalot: indeed11:03
sirriffsalotgaelfx: have you tried ubuntu-tweak or gnome-tweak-tools?11:03
chutchip: You could do it with Python.11:03
gaelfxsirriffsalot: no, and I've no desire to11:03
tchipI don't know Python , unfortunately11:04
sirriffsalotgaelfx: haha, un derstandable..11:04
llutztchip: perl, theres a module for google:translate in cpan11:04
sirriffsalotgaelfx: have you tried running an earlier kernel version?11:05
tchipNo perl, as well. Javascript, or php, would suit?11:05
sirriffsalotgaelfx: as a temporary fix. hold shift when you bootup to get into the grub selection menu, and go for "earlier linux versions" or words to the effect11:05
chutchip: You could really do it with pyhton easily. You wouldn't need to learn much.11:05
icerootwhat does "init [2]" mean? (the [2]) is interesting. its the output of "top" when you press "c" to get the complete process11:06
fernihow can I set pm-powersave to be always on (or true)?11:06
gaelfxsirriffsalot: it's been happening ever since I installed 12.04, it's not something that cropped up after a kernel update or anything like that11:06
Stroobachcan anyone help me with installing Amsn for ubuntu 12.04?11:07
vltgaelfx: I already used --assume-yes with aptitude but I think that’s only used for aptitude’s own question (whether to continue downloading recommended pkgs, for example) but not for the dialog shown by the deb-conf script :(11:07
vltAny other idea?11:07
usb333Hi guys, how do I remove manually-installed packages that aren't tracked by apt?11:08
JPeterso2why is the 12.04 subversion package 1.6?11:08
JPeterso2you got a problem with 1.7?11:08
vltusb333: Did you use dpkg to install it?11:08
usb333vlt I don't think so. I think I compiled it11:09
gaelfxvlt: indeed it is only used with aptitude, since it's only an option for that command, not for the commands it runs ;)11:09
vltusb333: Then it’s technically no “package” and you must remove it manually.11:09
usb333vlt and how do i do that?11:09
vltusb333: rm11:09
icerootJPeterso2: mostly because debian is using 1.611:09
icerootJPeterso2: and its easier to use already existing packages instead of maintaining a new package11:10
vltusb333: You can look into the sources. When it’s properly set up there could be an uninstall routine like `make uninstall` or something liek that.11:10
icerootusb333: depending on the build-process, have a look at the manual of the software, its always different11:10
icerootusb333: that is one reason to use packages instead of self compiled software11:11
usb333vlc I think "make uninstall" did it. Thanks guys!11:11
vltgaelfx: Can I pipe a “Y” to the aptitude process?11:11
icerootvlt: there is an option for automatic selections, so its build into aptitude already but i cant remeber the option (man aptitude)11:12
vlticeroot: Do you mean “-y|--assume-yes”?11:13
j0hnsm1thhow do you see where packages install stuff? like into /etc/ and other places11:13
vlticeroot: That doesn’t work here.11:13
icerootvlt: no there was something different11:13
icerootvlt: something with default/y/n and so on11:13
vlticeroot: Ok, I’ll try to find it.11:13
kubanchow do i install libstdc++11:13
icerootkubanc: apt-cache search libstdc++  to find the package you want (there are different versions)11:14
icerootkubanc: then "sudo apt-get install packagename"11:14
* vlt tries `aptitude -R linux-image-generic` now.11:15
* vlt and inserts “install”11:15
icerootkubanc: i guess gcc/g++ have it and will bring other things too you maybe need11:15
kubanciceroot, http://paste.ubuntu.com/994016/ what package?11:16
sirriffsalotgaelfx: well, for my part doing that solved a temporary problem with usb failures11:16
sirriffsalotgaelfx: might be worth a shot?11:16
icerootkubanc: libstdc++6 sounds good11:16
kubanciceroot, i get this error: ERROR: 32-bit libstdc++ not found. PSQL requires 32-bit libstdc++ support, that's why i'm trying to install libstdc++11:16
kubanciceroot, libstdc++6 is already the newest version.11:17
icerootkubanc: postgresql installed from the ubuntu-repos?11:17
kubanciceroot, probably not, i need it for Pervasive PSQL v11 SP2 client11:18
eutheriai am trying to important an openvpn config using nm-connection-editor, for some reason it wants me to authenticate to save, i tried running it with sudo but it still wants root to authenticate, maybe something broke during my upgrade?11:18

benveii'm trying to install ubuntu via debootstrap minimal. But network is not working ... What are the networking packages? i've allready installed netbase but that wasn't enough11:19
kubanciceroot, well they say you it supports sles and read hat linux, but sles is not free11:19
kubanci was wondering if i can install it on ubuntu11:19
icerootkubanc: of course sles is free11:20
iceroot!free | kubanc11:20
ubottukubanc: freedom is important. Ubuntu is as free as we can make it, which means mostly free software. See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html and http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/licensing11:20

iSeeDeadPixelsServerCrash, top11:21
icerootServerCrash: http://www.linuxatemyram.com/11:21
icerootServerCrash: first read that11:21
icerootkubanc: free means freedom11:22
icerootkubanc: and SLES is GNU/Linux, so its free11:22
icerootkubanc: what you mean is that sles costs money11:22
eutheriamaybe they should start using unbound rather than free11:22
MonkeyDusteutheria  free as in freedom of speech, that is unbound11:23
icerootkubanc: but back to your question, how you installed the software?11:23
crizisif you want SLES or RHEL, you buy them because you want support and quaranteed updates. Just like why you would pay for Ubuntu Advantage11:23
eutheriaMonkeyDust, unbound would cause people to have to think what they mean, i am getting sick of explaining free doesn't mean cheap to people ehre11:23

cypher-neoIs there a way to add a PERMANENT addition to update-alternatives?

icerootmonsterwizard: security updates11:27
leOni checked on the alternate shell that there was the vconfig utility available but i could not find any 8021q support11:27
monsterwizardhow can linux have security updates I never hear of any threats11:28
icerootmonsterwizard: cve.org11:28
icerootmonsterwizard: there are many security issues on the software you are using e.g. flash, java, firefox11:28
cypher-neomonsterwizard, The reason there are security updates, is also the reason you never hear of threats. lol11:28
crizisleOn: not really an answer to your question, but i recommend bookarmking https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/index.html :)11:28
cypher-neoThough iceroot answered it much better. :)11:28
monsterwizardSo it's not so much the linux os but the software people use?11:29
kubanciceroot, http://paste.ubuntu.com/994033/11:29

root_Hi room12:17
ms-daisyyou need /quit12:17
tahimikmy_ubuntu: I looked at the tty output. Approach seems to be correct. It might be that mount is having difficulty finding /OS, in which case you could creat a new directory in your home directory, somthing like ~/mountpoint, and use that instead of /OS12:18
chmacSeems like my printer will only print one page jobs, not multi-page jobs. Any idea how I script the print of a PDF?12:18
jsjgruber-x-pchmac, sounds like a bug. Can you try another kind of printer to narrow down the problem?12:19
my_ubuntu_tahimik: I think the same, cause there is no 'OS' Directory in / . So How will it find it there. Moreover, the mount image is there in /media, but in my command, there is no role of 'media'12:20
chmacjsjgruber-x-p: Probably is, but I need to get 140 pages printed today and I only have 1 printer here :-)12:20
ms-daisychmac: I've seen a thread in ubuntuforums.org about the same issue.  I'm trying to find it but you can look too if you're in a hurry.12:21
jsjgruber-x-pchmac, you could use python and a module called poppler to script the rendering of individual pages, I guess. There's an example of rendering a window from a page of a pdf using poppler in lernid.12:21
chmacms-daisy: Ok, would appreciate the link if you find it.12:21
jsjgruber-x-pchmac, it may be more work to script it than to print 140 pages, I don't know.12:22
chmacI just found `lpr` which seems like it'll print a file, so a simple `for f in *; do lpr f; done` might do the trick :-)12:22
jsjgruber-x-pyou'll have to get each page in its own pdf, however. lpr x.pdf does work, I use it at least once a week.12:23

WotWhereHow many passes for a reliable report in memtest?  or time? should ecc be on or off?12:27
jsjgruber-x-pms-daisy, you use rsync on files and directories, not on whole hard drives or partitions. If you mount all of the partitions on the secondary hard drive you could rsync the root directory of each.12:28
jsjgruber-x-pms-daisy, you would wind up with copies of the contents of the files, but not a copy of the image of the hard disk. You may be12:29

chtulhu318in windows 7 it worked perfectly, shortly I installed ubuntu, but can't the mount to work.12:40
Dr_willisg3orge,  if they mention a package name for the older releases.. i  imagine the name would be the same.12:40

ms-daisyjsjgruber-x-p: yes I agree.  I have rsynced to the server, but I want to rsync directly to the secondary hard drive. the command I used is this: rsync -azv -e  /home/msdaisy msdaisy@
compdocms-daisy, you need two colons12:41
ms-daisycompdoc: where does the second colon go- next to the first?12:41
g3orgeDr_willis: how do I search for a specific model? anything I found is general mac stuff and some other stuff I tried and didn't work.12:42
chtulhu318btw if I go root with sudo -s I'm perfectly able to write12:42
chtulhu318under any other user, files simply don't show up12:42
compdocms-daisy, its best to make it simple - see if you can at least list the rsync shares:  rsync msdaisy@
Dr_willisg3orge,  i dont know what your mac model is. I dont even know mac model #'s -  you could determine your chipset via the lspci output, and other erorr messages and search for those also.12:42
ms-daisycompdoc: the connection was refused.  I just rsync'd the home folder to the server though.  Is this a permissions thing?12:44
compdocms-daisy, very likely12:45
ms-daisycompdoc: so probably the permissions on the mounted drive? or the permissions of my ssh user? (bleh- now I have to learn permissions)12:46
compdocms-daisy, could be perms on the share - but best to check everything12:46

ClientAliveI was wondering, does ubuntu have packages of apps that come as a group? What do you call that, where to find and install?13:59
BiblioclastaAxeman, localhost/zm13:59

ClientAliveDr_willis: I see. Nothing for other stuff (like software development packages in a group?14:00
BiblioclastaDr_willis, nop14:00
Dr_willisClientAlive,  a meta packge is just a special package that depends on other packages... nothing really special about them14:00
llutzDr_willis: check /lib/udev/rules.d/  for it14:00

Unode|WorkI currently have a file open by a program. The file has been accidentally removed from the filesystem but is still being written to by this program. I'm familiar with the lsof approach to recover open files but in this case, since the file is still being written to doing the "cp" approach will only copy the content at the time of the command, which means that a second later the file is incomplete...14:57

zykotick9Si2100: your interfaces file contains no DNS info (same as my setups), so you need valid info in /etc/resolv.conf15:01

zykotick9Si2100: ! see mneptok file instead!  /etc/network/interfaces15:05
waggysaxgenii-around, that sounds right, is there any way around it?15:05
klausjrib: So if i use the command ubuntu-bug <package> what package should i use in my case?15:05
pratzwhen use yeahconsole and i can hear the beep sound when i press backspace15:05
jribklaus: I'd start with sshfs15:05
ruliwaggysax: run 'file xvst'15:05
pratzbasically i want to disable the beep sound from system15:05
Si2100wtf i set it to and i still have no conneciton15:06
ruliwaggysax: also 'echo $QTDIR'15:06
waggysaxruli, done15:06
waggysaxruli: what am I looking for?15:06
ruliwaggysax: and print the output here15:07
waggysaxruli: " file xvst15:07
waggysaxxvst: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (GNU/Linux), statically linked, stripped"15:07
pratzhow can i disable beep sound from system in 12.04 ?15:07
gypsehso nobody has anyy ideas why this thing tells me i have a different card than i do?15:07
pratzand it is speaker beep15:07
MonkeyDustpratz  in a terminal, type alsamixer15:08
Dr_willisgypseh,  check the wine app database or the playonlinux homepage.15:08
rulipratz: you don't. heir shuttleworth has mandated that you must hear speaker beep thus you must15:08
waggysaxruli: there was no output for the other command15:08
Dr_willisI dnt hear any speaker beeps...15:08
Si2100Okie Strange, even with google dns setup when i do: ping google.co.uk i get nothing..15:09
ruliwaggysax: install the 32-bit webkit presuming you're on 64-bit, with apt-get install packagename:i38615:09
pratzruli: what the hell ?15:09
pratzMonkeyDust: next ?15:09
MonkeyDustpratz  explore alsamixer, speaker etc15:09
L3topslook for "beep" or "pc speaker" prc38415:09
L3topser pratz^15:09
waggysaxthank you ruli15:10
ruliwaggysax: does it work then?15:10
pratzMonkeyDust: can not find it , any other way ?15:10
blackber2yhow install conky?15:10
waggysaxruli: not sure yet15:11
MonkeyDustpratz  use the arrows to walk through alsamixer and to change the levels15:11
fratermcan anyone assist me with a 12.04 sources.list issue?  I would like to decipher the error message I'm getting regarding multiple fonts, as well as an issue where certain repositories don't connect with the "check your internet connection" error message.15:11
pratzMonkeyDust: yes, but i can not find the speaker option15:11
ruliwaggysax: since you're running a program not formally installed you might have to run the program with QTDIR and LD_LIBRARY_PATH set to include the 32-bit debian directory tree15:11
pratzMonkeyDust: also, will it diable the speaker output ?15:12
pratzMonkeyDust: i just want to disable the beep sound15:12
MonkeyDustpratz  type alsamixer|pastebinit and paste the url here15:12
waggysaxruli: how do I formally install it?15:12
ruliwaggysax: by getting the package from the repository15:12
waggysaxI see15:12
ruliwaggysax: if there isn't one, then you have to do things manually15:13

rulijust trust ubuntu developers is a very bad idea15:20
Picilorddelta: also http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-1417-1/15:20
lorddeltaPici: I meant is there a decent way to see the release notes via command line? i.e. dpkg or something?15:20
christian__ikonia: you didnt need anything like wvdial or something like that ? i am trying it with the network manager right now15:20
ikoniaruli: why is that ?15:20
christian__one moment15:20
ikoniachristian__: nothing at all15:20
lorddeltaPici, ikonia cat a file in a directory?15:20
lyscerwhen I do "ls -al" it doesn't show up, but I can "cd Marketing" and then "ls -al" and it shows all the files in the directory15:20
ruliikonia: well they're not exactly the sharpest tools in the toolbox15:20
Dr_willishow vague..15:21
christian__ikonia: cannot open netowrk managr :D15:21
ikoniaruli: yet they make and maintain and ubuntu disto which is pretty much the most popular desktop on the linux platform,15:21
Dr_willisand they did backport the security fix to libpng it seems15:21
ikoniaruli: I'd suggest keeping your ill thought comments to yourself15:21
lorddeltaruli: I agree. I trust them enough to create my OS distro, but I like to make 100% sure myself (well, ok, 99%) if I'm made aware of a security vulnerability15:21
ikoniaDr_willis: looks that way15:21
christian__ikonia:  ok its open now, but i dont see any connect button15:21

AruzsiIs gMTP working with Samsung Galaxy SII under Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit?15:21
ruliikonia: yeah good luck with that15:21
ikonialorddelta: so let me get this straight, you trust them to make your OS, but you trust yourself to manage it's security even though you have no idea how to do it15:22
pratzhow can i turn off beep sound in 12.04 ?15:22
lorddeltaikonia, Dr_willis, Pici that's not a judgement on the ubuntu developers15:22
lorddeltaikonia: Why so quick to assume that I'm bashing?15:22
pratzand where are sound preferences in 12.04 ?15:22
ikonialorddelta: clearly it is15:22
lorddeltaikonia: clearly I'm not15:22
lorddeltaikonia: I just want to make sure.15:22
ikonialorddelta: you don't trust them to manage security effentially, yet you don't know how to do it yourself but you trust that knowledge over the experience of the people who maintain and build your distro15:22
MonkeyDustpratz  system settings, sound15:23
rulilorddelta: ikonia is exactly right. you should switch to another distro15:23
resnodoes the base install of ubuntu 12.04 close port 20?15:23
lorddeltaikonia: So? I trust them to a point, and then attempt to learn the rest by myself.15:23
christian__where is the connect button at the network manager :D15:23
resnoah, never mind. didnt have the software isntalled15:23
lorddeltaikonia: please stop being so antagonistic.15:23
ikonialorddelta: houw about trust them - they know what they are doing15:23
lorddeltaikonia: how about you could have just helped me out with a command and we wouldn't be having this silly argument?15:24
ikonialorddelta: there isn't a command15:24
Picilorddelta: Personally I prefer installing apt-listchanges to make sure that I know what changes are being updated when I do my upgrades.15:24
pratzMonkeyDust: hmm, but there is no option for beep or alert15:24
ikonialorddelta: and the fact that you expect a command suggests you should just trust the developers15:24
pratzMonkeyDust: i thought there would be one15:24
Picilorddelta: aptitude has a changelog command, but I'm not sure of one for apt.15:24
lorddeltaPici: *nod* I think I have something like that installed, I do try to read them, but the last update had something like 400+ updates...15:24
lorddeltaSo needless to say I didn't read them all15:25
genii-aroundPici: Yes, I've found that very helpful after a failure, can check exactly what was changed without internet access15:25
lorddeltaikonia: no it doesn't15:25
ikonialorddelta: good luck15:25
lorddeltaikonia: exactly. glad you can see my point.15:25

lorddeltaikonia: Never trust anyone 100%. I trust the ubuntu developpers, to a point, and after that point I want to make sure myself. To a point (no I'm not going to sit and stare at disassembly for hours. Also, a command does not imply that I trust the ubuntu developpers, I'd be fine with setting something up from source, from an external repo - unless the ubuntu developers are also responsible for gcc)15:27

ubottuMrChattyPants: Compiling software from source? Read the tips at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingSoftware (But remember to search for pre-built !packages first). Also read !checkinstall16:39
L3topscorrect bibi2316:39
TaddleOkay, I don't think that helped: http://pastebin.mozilla.org/164496816:39
beandogmysqld: Can't change dir to '/var/lib/mysql/'16:40
beandogthere's your problem, botched install.  Start it over.16:40
Mola_Ram_VishnuCompiling from source is real tricky16:40
L3topsthanks beandog... I didn't follow16:41
TaddleLol,98.3kB for a whole mysql install16:42
L3topsbright out here, and my highlighting was orange on yellow16:42
TaddleThat sounds wrong in every way possible16:42
L3topsTaddle: how are you trying to install?16:42
L3topsTaddle: what command did you use16:42
TaddleL3tops, apt get install mysql-server16:43
TaddleIt was connected to dotdeb though16:43
L3topsTaddle: then it looks like you were just missing a piece16:43
L3topsTaddle: I thought you removed that and updated16:43
TaddleErr, I can't even remove mysql now16:43
Taddlesudo apt get remove mysql-server is right isn't it?16:44
beandogjust use force16:44
L3topswell... first I would get rid of that errant deb16:44
L3topsTaddle: ^16:44
MrChattyPantsIs update-manager written in Java?16:45
Mola_Ram_VishnuMrChattyPants, Hello No !16:45
MrChattyPantsThank god.16:45
L3topsand update Taddle16:45
beandogI was gonna say ...16:45
Mola_Ram_VishnuMrChattyPants, Most likely GTK+16:45
MrChattyPantsCan someone actually help me with the compilation of update-manager?16:47
Mola_Ram_VishnuMrChattyPants, Do you know the difference between C++ and Java ?16:47
MrKeunerhello, is it possible to make a box connect to wireless AP even if noone has signed in?16:47
L3topsTaddle: is there a reason you have those ppas?16:47
L3tops!ppa | Taddle16:48
ubottuTaddle: A Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa and !ppa-purge16:48
beandogMrKeuner: yah, you could do it manually16:48
MrKeunerbeandog, in which file?16:48
beandogit might make networkmanager unhappy though16:48
TaddleOh, I didn't put them there16:48
MrChattyPantsPeople, some help would be very much appreciated.16:48
MrKeunerbeandog, I wouldn't do it despite Network manager16:48
harry_What is your problem?16:48
L3topsbeandog: for instance W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/brianmercer/php/ubuntu/dists/oneiric/main/source/Sources16:49
beandogMrKeuner: you'd use iwconfig stuff, and then dhcp client to get an address16:49
beandogL3tops: wait, whut?16:49
MrChattyPantsI need someone to help with recompiling the update-manager, harry_.16:49
thesheff17_all my characters changed to this: 不经验证就安装这些软件包吗?[y/N] anyone know how to fix this?16:49
llutzMrKeuner: isn't it connecting by default if you set "connection available for all users" in networkmanager?16:49
MrKeunerllutz, haven't tried it, do you think it would?16:50
beandogllutz: I think he means, with no login16:50
MrKeunerbeandog, corrrect16:50
harry_Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling it through the software center GUI?16:50
llutzMrKeuner: at least on my netbook it does. wifi-connection is established without any user being logged in16:50
L3topsbeandog: http://pastebin.mozilla.org/164499316:50
llutzbeandog: yes16:50
MrKeunerllutz, beandog great I'll try it thanks16:50
TaddleI'm guessing I should comment out all the the failing repo PPAs and those CDROM things16:50
beandogL3tops: I'm not familiar enough with apt to know what that's doing16:51
beandogTaddle: that's what I was going to suggest16:51
L3topsbeandog: I would just tell him to sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*; sudo apt-get update16:51
L3topsbut I am lazy16:51
Relocan someone tell me how to download packages through Ubuntu's command line?16:51
paolo_hi. which is the alsa development package in 11.10 ?16:51
beandogL3tops: I like it16:51
beandogRelo: aptitude download16:52
llutzRelo: sudo apt-get install packagename16:52
Relosudo apt-get install xxxxx doesn't work. it wants to assume I have the package already16:52
llutzRelo: exact error is?16:53
harry_Does anyone have problems were their sound card? Mine will randomly stop getting detected but a reboot fixes it16:53
Relocommand is: sudo apt-get install lynx-cur. I get E: unable to locate package lynx-cur16:53
Relotried just lynx...16:53
Relosame. went into aptitude and lynx isnt there16:53
llutz!info lynx-cur16:53

dagolfnutCan anyone here help with connection issues in Pidgin?16:53
llutzRelo: check your sources.list16:54
vidbhow to get folders using ncftp please?16:54
L3topsTaddle: if there are ppas in /etc/apt/sources.list then yes, comment them out. but they may exist in /etc/apt/sources.list.d in which case you would sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*  then sudo apt-get update again16:54
MrChattyPantsI download the  lp:ubuntu/precise-updates/update-manager source files, then went ahead and merged them with the new strings from http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~mterry/update-manager/string-changes/revision/2426. So how do I get a .deb file from that now?16:54
beandogvidb: what do you mean?  Like fetch them?  Do recursive ... ncftpget -r16:54
jeeves_mosshow can I fix my inability to right click the panel?  I want to add things to it, but when I right click it, nothing happens.16:54
Reloalright im there but I dont know what im looking for...16:55
vidbbeandog, I want to copy some folders from a distant server, i tried ncftp but it copy only files.16:55
Relothere isn't a single download command to grab tarballs?16:56
beandogvidb: yah, just use recursive, otherwise it'll only fetch stuff in the root diretory16:56
llutzRelo: you use packages with apt/dpkg not tarballs16:56
LmAtHow do I remove a keyboard layout in Ubuntu?16:56
LmAtI removed it in Gnome, but when I use TTY, it's still there!16:56
xanguajeeves_moss: if you are talking about fallback mode, you need to keep pressed Super+Alt i believe16:56
vidbbeandog, can u give me a command exemple please?16:56
beandogthesheff17: whats your locale set to16:56
TaddleI'm running the remove command again, and it seems to be trying to run a failing, broken setup16:57
L3topsLmAt: did you ever fix your tty problem?16:57
MrChattyPantsLet me ask again: I download the  lp:ubuntu/precise-updates/update-manager source files, then went ahead and merged them with the new strings from http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~mterry/update-manager/string-changes/revision/2426. So how do I get a .deb file from that now?16:57
docmurhow do I remove the overlay scroll bar, it's might be the worlds worst idea ever intergrated into a GUI16:57
L3topsTaddle: dpkg --configure -a16:57
beandogvidb: ncftp16:57
coolcusty_so i'm allowing users to access to an ubuntu box to retrieve and store files via winscp. it's working great. the only thing is that when the user logs in it goes to the root directory and not the user home directory.16:57
beandogvidb: help get16:57
LmAtL3tops: Yeah, I sudo service gdm stop  .  But I guess I wouldn't actually call that "fixing" the problem.16:57
Relookay perhaps I just don't understand then16:57
LmAtL3tops: Thanks for asking :)16:57
jeeves_mossxangua, I'm running the newest release.  and when I go to the top of the desktop, and right click the panel, nothing happens.  normally, I can right click and "add to panel".16:57
vidbok thank you16:57
llutzRelo: it shuld contain a line like "deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main restricted universe multiverse"16:57
llutzRelo: just different mirror than de.archive.... perhaps16:58
L3topsTaddle: that will need a sudo... sorry.16:58
Reloyes, it does16:58
=== harry_ is now known as TheAlliedFleet
llutzRelo: so run "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lynx-cur"16:58
docmurnevermind I got them disabled :-)16:58
xanguajeeves_moss: if you mean unity the panel position is fixed16:58
coolcusty_is there a way to restrict user login and navigation to their home directory and it's sub directories16:59
TaddleGod you guys know a lot :P16:59
jeeves_mossxangua, I'm not trying to move it, just add widgets to it16:59
LmAtWell, after reading, it looks like I should just re-install ubuntu...16:59
beandogcoolcusty_: its called a chroot16:59
xanguajeeves_moss: well you can add Indicators16:59
beandogcoolcusty_: derp, root jail.  my bad.16:59
jeeves_mossxangua, ???16:59
beandogLmAt: what happened?16:59
thesheff17_anyone have all Chinese characters?  I have no idea how to fix this16:59
TaddleL3tops, what was your intention with that?16:59
thesheff17_and I can't read any of the menus17:00
xanguajeeves_moss: http://askubuntu.com/questions/30334/what-application-indicators-are-available17:00
beandogthesheff17_: what's your locale set to?  Open a terminal and run "locale"17:00
L3topsTaddle: that attempts to reconfigure broken package installs17:00
TaddleIt seems like it made no change to me17:00
beandogand pastebin it17:00
jeeves_mossxangua, thank you17:00
LmAtbeandog: I have two keyboard layouts: US and Dvorak.  I got a keyboard that handles the dvorak by itself, so that the computer thinks everything is in qwerty.17:00
coolcusty_beandog: i'll look into it17:00
L3topsTaddle: now apt-get remove again17:00
OerHeksthesheff17, did you actually update a videodriver?17:00
LmAtbeandog: I would now like to remove the dvorak keyboard layout, but don't know how.17:00
beandogcoolcusty_: good luck man, usually it's in place for someone doing remote connections like SSH.17:00
thesheff17_I ran updates17:00
beandogLmAt: oh, that ... it's probably apt-reconfigure kbd or something17:00
LmAtbeandog: I got it working in gnome (very easily), but when I switch to tty1, the dvorak layout is happening again.17:00
Relookay, well... obviously I'm a linux noob so my questions will be annoying, but why can't I just specify a link to somewhere. Say I want to download... i donno... anything other than something that comes from xxxx.ubuntu.xxxx. I simply can't do it?17:01
teh5abikinghello all17:01
TaddleNo change17:01
iSeeDeadPixelswho can help me with setting up MaaS with a existing DHCP server?17:01
beandogLmAt: http://www.wikihow.com/Change-Keyboard-Layout-in-Ubuntu17:01

bibi23L3tops: I found a package wich looks serious, https://launchpad.net/~ondrej/+archive/php5 , I've added the ppa, update etc, but php can't be upgraded because of dependencies that needs to be updated to, is there a way to update php and all the dependencies too?17:01
L3topsbeandog: LmAt dpkg --reconfigure17:01

beandogL3tops: I was close. :)17:01
beandogLmAt: Okay then, it's system keyboard.17:02
beandogplease hold.17:02
wyldeiSeeDeadPixels: #ubuntu-server would probably have people better able to help.17:02
L3topsbibi23: PPAs are unsupported I am afraid. You are a bit on your own there. If you absolutely have to have the lastes version on lucid, you will have to work it out.17:02
beandogL3tops: sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup17:02
yohanni know this is not the right place but i couldnt find a python irc, im having encoding erros in my python script17:02
xanguabibi23: if the ppa doesn't work you need to contact the ppa maintainer17:02
beandogthesheff17_: okay, what's your native language17:02
coolcusty_also how can i give a user a home directory17:03
MrChattyPantsHere's the list of files that I need to make into a .deb: http://paste.ubuntu.com/994526/. How do I do it?17:03

quiescensyay cookie17:06
TaddleGod, that cut a hole in my bank account17:07
Taddle1776 cookies is not cheap17:07

beandogLmAt: really?  whut.17:07
beandogLmAt: did it have you pick your native language and all that17:08
bibi23L3tops: ok so I'll don't do that if it's dangerous, but I don't really understand how should I do then, because with the ppa you gave me earlier wasn't it the same issue? unsuported17:08
LmAtbeandog: really :)  It talked about character set, and font size (which I changed), but not layout.17:08
LmAtbeandog: It asked me the encoding and charcter set, not the layout.17:08

beandogLmAt: weird.  I dunno.17:10
LmAtbeandog: It changes the keyboard layout in gnome.  But afer I restart, the deleted keyboard layout is back!17:10

bibi23L3tops: yes thanks for your help I'm grateful for that, I'm just trying to understand how the packages work because I'm kind of lost in that17:11
LmAtbeandog: That's difficult on tty, but I'll give it my best shot.17:11
beandogwell, that's not entirely true ... it *does* have one, but it's scrambled17:11
beandogLmAt: use nopaste17:11

ubottublitzkrieg766: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo17:12

LmAtbeandog: nope.17:13
beandogLmAt: install gpm if you want a mouse17:13
MrChattyPantsI download the lp:ubuntu/precise-updates/update-manager source files, then went ahead and merged them with the new strings from http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~mterry/update-manager/string-changes/revision/2426.

LmAtbeandog: I'm not interested in a mouse, but I forgot to run tmux before running irssi.  no foresight :(17:14
beandogLmAt: nooooes17:14
LmAtbeandog: That was a LITTLE easier ;)17:14
LmAtbeandog: I had to run nopaste, copy the url somewhere else, go back to irssi, and type the url again :P17:15
bibi23L3tops: maybe I can take the same repository than for my local computer, the difference is that it's precise instead of lucid, does it make it uncompatible?17:15
beandogLmAt: Right, with gpm you could have done copy / paste17:15
beandogmiddle click ftw, also. ;)17:15
LmAtbeandog: Oh, gpm (gnome package manager?) has a clipboard with it?  Is it a service?17:15
coolcusty_beandog: so i tried usermod and it give me a "no changes"  message but there isn't a directory for the user in the home directory and upon logging in i got "could not chdir to home directory /home/theuser: no such file or directory"17:15
beandogLmAt: no ... gdm17:15

LmAtbeandog: I have gdm.  I stopped it (sudo service17:16
beandogLmAt: you dont have to stop it to get to console ... use ctl alt f117:16
LmAtbeandog: What does your /etc/default/keyboard say?17:16
beandogLmAt: alt f7 to get back17:16
LmAtbeandog: That doesn't work for previously described reasons.17:17

LmAtbeandog: It looks like nothing changed.17:22
MrKeunerllutz, you are right, symlink to /etc/alternatives/mail17:22
llutzbeandog: dpkg -L    needs a packagename to list files, -S is to find a package17:22
beandogllutz: derp17:23
llutzMrKeuner: follow the links to find the endpoint17:23
trismsk1special: change the Icon= line in the .desktop file the launcher uses, then drag and drop it back on the launcher (the default .desktop files are usually in /usr/share/applications/, easiest to copy them to ~/.local/share/applications/ and edit there)17:23

oscarHi, I've just install OpenXenManager and had to make my own OpenXenManager.desktop, that's fine. I can start OXM from launcher but it does not indicate it's running so I can't switch to it, just start another instance. Am I missing something in my .desktop file?17:24
llutzMrKeuner: aptitude why packagename17:24
beandogLmAt: hmm that's what mine is too.  Now I'm really stumped.17:25
MrKeunerllutz, thank you very much17:25
beandogLmAt: how did you switch it to begin with?17:25
LmAtbeandog: At installation, it asked what keyboard I use. I told it "dvorak".17:25
beandogLmAt: Also, see if it's that way with another user, too... could be an environment variable somewhere ... I'm not really familiar with keyboard layouts17:25
cristian_con other question:17:25
