Dr_Willismacdaddy:  easiest/simplist way. install ssh on ubuntu box. use winscp on windows box.03:12
odacelthunder, "chmod: cannot access `configure': No such file or directory03:12
celthunderoda: is there a configure script when you run ls03:12
Dr_Willisoda:  then you dont have a 'configure' script to run.03:12
macdaddyDR_Willis, do you have a guide or set of instructions, Im a noob03:12
Snowie_NOOBspertoda, take a step back, what are you trying to do exactly03:12
Dr_Willismacdaddy:  install ssh server on ubuntu, run winscp on windows.. is about as basic as it gets03:12
Snowie_NOOBspert! info ssh03:13
Snowie_NOOBsperthope that works03:13
odaSnowie_NOOBspert, Trying to install Java Runtime03:13
odaSnowie_NOOBspert, It's been extracted from a tarball03:13
celthunderoda: apt-get install jre or whatever03:13
Snowie_NOOBspertok. so you need to chmod the file03:13
Snowie_NOOBspertif you ls, is there a file called 'configure;03:13
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.03:13

AprelHas anyone used kdenlive 0.9 on Ubuntu and had problems getting audio?03:17
AprelI've tried every audio setting and audio device...03:18
Aprelcalling it in the terminal doesn't output any error message.03:18
L3topAprel: what problem are you specifically having? During monitor you cannot hear audio?03:20
Dr_Willisif its running on ubuntu/unity/gnome - you should be using the 'pulse' audio sound device i would hink03:20
=== fupz is now known as felipe__
Dr_Willis'alsa' device sould also work03:21
L3topAprel: but watching the video you are trying to edit does play audio if you just open it?03:21
piihbI turned off my Bluetooth and it turned off my wireless too. I won't let me turn it on. Is there a way to fix this with the terminal? Also, when I go to the Windows partition, my wireless is always off, and I have to turn it on every time.03:22
AprelI don't get any audio in the program on playback, but if I export a video with audio and play in in something else (like movie player) audio is fine03:22
Dr_Willispiihb:  'go to the windows partition'  = you mean boot to  windows?03:23
AprelBut absolutely no sound while editing :/03:23
piihbYeah. I turned off the bluetooth on Ubuntu and now my wireless is automatically turned off every time I boot to Windows.03:23
dingushello, i am going to install ubuntu on my laptop, but i'm not sure whether or not I should use the 32bit or 64bit version. my processor is a core i7, 64bit, but the ubuntu download page reccomends 32bit03:23
L3topAprel: by export... what format are you exporting it to? what is the source file? It may be a codec... can you play the source with audio in something else?03:23
dingusshould i just go with the 64bit version ?03:24
Dr_Willisdingus:  use 64bit if your hardware supports it03:24
sunitasethihi L3top03:24
zykotick9dingus: if you need to ask, i'd say use 32bit03:24
sunitasethihttp://paste.ubuntu.com/1004104/ L3top does this make sense to you?03:24
L3tophello sunitasethi. You are going to ask me about this oddball USB ethernet call eh?03:24
sunitasethiL3top: it is challenging03:25
AprelL3top: yes, source has sound in vlc, movieplayer, etc. I also tried exporting teh file i want to edit to raw codec. That plays fine in everything else, but feeding it back into kdenlive doesn't make audio available :/03:25
dingusDr_Willis, zykotick9 thanks03:25
naryfasunitasethi: good to see you here again lol03:25
sunitasethihi naryfa03:25
AprelAnd actually did that export with kdenlive itself03:25
naryfasunitasethi: hi :)03:26
* L3top doesn't let 15 dollar solutions cause him this much aggrivation... 03:26
Dr_Willisive been toying wwith video editing in 'openshot' this week..  decent little app. :)03:26
sunitasethinaryfa: hi03:26
sunitasethiL3top:  good03:26
piihbDr_Willis: Yeah. I turned off the bluetooth on Ubuntu and now my wireless is automatically turned off every time I boot to Windows.03:26
sunitasethidoes this make sense to anyone ? http://paste.ubuntu.com/1004104/03:26
L3topI would assume that it is a setting in kdenlive Aprel... I do not use kdenlive... so I cannot look through it. What is the source file type?03:27
naryfasunitasethi: you still fight with that usb ethernet?03:28
harris_hi how do you add the tomboy lens to ubuntu 12.0403:28
sunitasethinaryfa: yes we never spoke before03:28
L3topsunitasethi: have you confirmed that this usb ethernet adapter is working in another OS?03:28
naryfasunitasethi: we did, last night03:28
harris_naryfa, are you still chatting about ethernet03:28
vexaxvhey guys i installed 12.04 on my wifes laptop and everything is good except the brightness is so low and i set it all the way up it wont change if i move the slider..03:28
sunitasethinaryfa: i am going to sell the adapter03:28

xanguaharris_: http://www.webupd8.org/2011/11/unity-tomboy-lens.html google is your friend03:29
L3tophave you confirmed that specific one  in your hands does sunitasethi?03:29
Dr_Willisvexaxv:  often its a good idea to check the forums or askubuntu.com for the exact make/brand/model  of  laptop - and see if others have similer issues and possible fixs03:29
harris_xangua, what about grooveshark03:29
AprelL3top: it's an flv. I'm going to give Dr_Willis' openshot a try.03:29
piihbDr_Willis: What were you saying earlier about using recovery mode to reinstall, in a sense?03:30
sunitasethiL3top: it was when i bought it03:30
ivanBliminsehello.. I'm running docky on gnome 3.4.2, is there any reason the docklets disappear on computer restart or logout/login, or any solutions known?03:30
zykotick9vexaxv: does this happen to be a EEE netbook?03:30
xanguaharris_: mmm it looks the ppa for tomboy lens is only for oneirc03:30
Dr_Willispiihb:  you normally use recovery or rescue mode to 'fix' a broken system03:30
vexaxvits a toshiba satelite l75503:30
sunitasethiL3top: but you never know03:30
harris_xangua,  well03:30
Dr_Willistomboy has really fallen out of favor. ;(  i liked the app.. but never use it any  more either03:30
sunitasethiL3top: and i think this http://paste.ubuntu.com/1004104/ it may have worked03:31
zykotick9vexaxv: adding "acpi_osi=Linux" to grub might be worth a shot, e at grub menu to test.03:31
vexaxvzykotick9, how do i do that03:31
L3topthat is why I am asking sunitasethi... usually if you get a "bad cable" query... something is wrong with the device... but not necessarily.03:31
piihbDr_Willis: So how can I use that to fix my Bluetooth? Also, when I did recovery mode last time, I had to hold the power button on my laptop because I was staring a bunch of white text on a black background and nothing was happening03:32
burnthey :) ... I upgraded to 12.04 from gnome classic, wow what a mistake, now cannot see the pannel in unity, in gnome classic (with effects) I cannot move, resize, minimize or close a window! ... I can only move windows in gnome classic without effects03:32
sunitasethiL3top: it is in excellent physical condition03:32
burnthas anyone else had any problems03:32
Dr_Willispiihb:  i dont know how you turned off your blooth.. try turning it back on he same way?03:32

L3topvexaxv: can you raise the brightness with the fn + f? key ( on this laptop it is f8)03:33
burntwish I could fix this03:33
Dr_Willisharris_:  if the ppd does not support 12.04 -  then you  would use the source. which may  not  work properly with the new versions of unity03:33
harris_does anyone know a lot about lenses03:33
vexaxvL3top, no..03:33
Dr_Willisblackmatrix_ny:  use 64bit os if your hardware supports it03:34

Dr_Willisedwinkcw:  bash has some keyboard shortcuts to delete last word.. but i cant rember them03:45

Dr_Willischeck the  bash docs/tutorials :)03:46
Dr_Willissaw some bash command line keybinding  cheat sheet online once..03:46

Dr_Willisvite: for most of the dpkg config dialogs, i belive you use tab to move around, arrow, space and enter keys03:54
Aprelshape: looking at sensors --help, it looks like you can supply a config file. My guess is yours got corrupted or was never set right by the program03:54
BlackWebWhich on the client machine then i can ls the directories just fine of the vfstp server but ya just doesnt want to transfer it03:55

chip8874bazhang: I would like to know how to script that action with linux04:01

paulus68Dr_Willis: since I am not able to get into a live cd at the moment, might also be possible that I need to burn the image again04:13
robertzaccourhow do I make my USB webcam default?04:13
Harrissudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer04:13
Harrissudo modprobe b43 Dr_Willis04:13
Dr_WillisHarris:  the install command just needs ran once.04:13
Dr_WillisHarris:  and you can set the module to autoload04:14
ubottuTo compile modules and drivers that are not bundled with the standard kernel,  for more info /msg ubottu kernel  , install the relevant package, usually called "<modulename>-source", and run « sudo module-assistant » (you will have to do this again after kernel updates). To prevent specific modules from loading, see /msg ubottu blacklist04:14
shapeAprel, of course. I use it on my other (good) computer, because it plays....Everything!04:14
HarrisDr_Willis,  how04:14
Dr_Williswhat is the module autoload file.. /etc/modules i think04:14
HarrisDr_Willis,  it said permission dined04:15
Dr_WillisHarris:  linux basics.. to mess with system configs.. you need sudo rights04:15
Dr_Williswell ubuntu  basics. ;)04:15
Dr_Willisits also possible thst module has been blacklisted to keep it from auto-loading04:15
Dr_Willisyou may  need to unblacklist it.04:16
vexaxvL3top, thank u it worked what did no acpi mean04:16

BlackWebWhen I try to transfer a file with ftp, using "get remotefile localdestination" then it Aborts, doing verbose then it says it cant open file, but on a Windows Box it transfers just fine, Any ideas?04:17
L3topIt turned off the advanced configuration and power interface vexaxv.04:17
Dr_WillisHarris:  so add the module name to the end of the /etc/modules file04:17
vexaxvL3top, what does that have to do with brightness04:18
vexaxvL3top, i have one more issue and this time its on my laptop haha04:19
L3topThe greatest drain on power on laptops is often the screen... it attempts to automatically change the settings. This works on a bunch of hardware, on some, it does not.04:19

robertzaccourhow do I make my USB webcam default?04:19
tattolianyone in here have an x120e or might be able to figure out why i can get sound from both my headphone jack and hdmi but nothing from my speakers?04:20
L3topdefault what robertzaccour?04:20
tattoliim running 64 bit 12.0404:20
Harrishow do i make it autorun Dr_Willis  what do i type the codes in04:21
Dr_WillisHarris:  the /etc/modules file is a text file you edit and add the modules you want to load to the list.04:21
L3toptattoli: have you looked at alsamixer? Just type alsamixer in a terminal, and see that the appropriate mixers have levels and are not muted (MM at bottom)04:22
=== Kasjopaja is now known as Guest92623
L3topWhat is the other issue vexaxv?04:22
vexaxvL3top, well my issue is when i shut down my computer it hangs and 9/10 times i have to hold the power button04:22
robertzaccourL3top, there's a really cool webcam photo app from the Chrome Web Store and it uses the laptop's built in webcam instead of the USB one there's no option for that. Maybe I can somehow disable the laptop webcam?04:23
UncleSlippyFisthello all. first irc so i know very little04:23
tattoliL3top: nothing is muted in alsamixer04:24
robertzaccourL3top, that would probably work. Maybe there's a way to disable my integrated webcam04:24
HarrisDr_Willis,  i cant/ dont know how to open /etc/modules04:25
Dr_WillisHarris:  its a text file. use a text editor04:25
ubottuText Editors: gedit (GNOME), Kate (KDE), mousepad (Xfce4) - Terminal-based: nano, vi/vim, emacs, ed - For HTML/CSS editors, see !html - For programming editors and IDE, see !code04:26
Harriswhere do i locate it04:26
L3topvexaxv: you might look through dmesg log and try to figure out what is hanging...  that log is no joke though. cat /var/log/dmesg04:26
UncleSlippyFisthey, I'm going to get a thinkpad T520 and istall ubuntu on it pretty soon.  Has anyone done this? Any issues?04:26
Dr_WillisHarris:  locate? the full path to the file ie /etc/modules04:26
Dr_WillisHarris:  gksudo gedit  /etc/modules04:27
L3toprobertzaccour: I am not really sure how that would be done... depending on how the application detects things, I don't know how to ignore hardware in /dev.  It is possible you can unmount things udev automatically finds, but I honestly don't know04:27
Dr_Willisif you unload the module for a device - its /dev/ entry should also vanish04:28
felipe__is anybody else having problems when turning off their laptops. Mine doesn't shutdowns or restarts.04:29
UncleSlippyFistI have had no problems myself04:29
Dr_Willisfelipe__:  can depend on the chipset/make/model of the laptop   often the forums or askubuntu.com have tweaks for specific models04:29
vexaxvL3top, i dont see anything04:29
UncleSlippyFistblue people in youtube videos anyone? really annoying04:30
felipe__Dr_Willis, I found nothing on the forums, I'll try askubuntu. but this has been happening to me since 11.10 before that it worked flawlessly04:31
bazhangUncleSlippyFist, full screen the flash, then turn off hw acceleration04:31
Dr_WillisUncleSlippyFist:  known bug. disable hardware acceleration  in flash settings can fix it. or use html5 option on youtube04:31
L3topvexaxv: Unfortunately I can't really think of a better place to start than there... I have never really had any sort of shutdown issues. Perhaps someone else will have a better idea.04:31
Dr_Willisfelipe__:  new kernel, new subsystem changes.. new bugs04:31
robertzaccourL3top, oh ok thanks anyhow. I was hoping I could disable the integrated webcam so that the chrome app uses the usb webcam instead04:31
UncleSlippyFistDr_Willis: Is there a way to disable hardware acceleration without right clicking a flash video? Because right clicking always freezes the browser for me04:31
felipe__Dr_Willis, ok thanks04:32
Dr_Willisrobertzaccour:  unload the module the other webcam uses.04:32
vexaxvL3top, well thanks for all your help im off for now cya man :)04:32
Dr_WillisUncleSlippyFist:  make sure its fullscreened. i just use html5 on youtube04:32
L3toprobertzaccour: you may indeed be able to... Dr_Willis pointed out that removing the module should handle it... so I am guessing an rmmod will be in order... I am looking things up.04:32
UncleSlippyFisti use html5, too, but for some reason it doesn't work on all videos.  Some are still flash.  very random04:33
L3topnp vexaxv, sorry I couldn't be of more help on your second issue...04:33
Dr_Willisyoutube dosnet have them all converted to html504:33
UncleSlippyFistoh hey! full screen worked! Thanks, Dr_Willis04:33
AethrsI'm trying to rescue a system that won't boot with grub, but when I update-grub2 it can't find the device for the root filesystem.  I'm chrooted, can anyone help?04:33
Dr_WillisAethrs:  did you set up the  /dev/ in the  mountpoint befor you chrooted?04:35
AethrsYes, i did.04:35
AethrsThat's why I'm kinda confused.04:35
Dr_Willisperosnally i tend to just use 'grub-install'  with all the right options, i rarely chroot any more04:35
Dr_Willistheres also that boot-repair gui tool04:35
AethrsHow do i use grub-install ?04:36
AethrsOr the gui tool, for that matter.04:36
Dr_Willisgrub-install --help04:36

Dr_Willisrobertzaccour: do what?04:38
* Dr_Willis has only a 10 line history buffer visible04:39
robertzaccourDr_Willis, I don't know how to unload webcam modules04:39
Dr_Willisrobertzaccour:  sudo rmmod modulename04:39

ksbalaji_mine 10.4 LTS - after update my ooo is slow. Starts accessing HDD on every click/move! Help!04:40
Dr_Willistheres a link to installing the 'boot-repair' tool somewhere in those docs. its in a ppa.04:40
AethrsSo would grub-install --root-directory=/mnt be reasonable?04:40
AethrsDr_Willis- "Installing"?  I have a unbootable system.04:40
Dr_WillisAethrs:  im not sur if it wants /mnt/ or /mnt/boot04:40
Dr_Willisyou can install the boot-repair tool from a live-cd setup to 'ram'04:40
robertzaccourDr_Willis, sudo rmmod modulenamme04:41
robertzaccourERROR: Module modulenamme does not exist in /proc/modules04:41
Dr_Willisi was hopeing thwy would include it on the 12.04 live cd. ;( but no luck04:41
AethrsSearching on that page for repair turns up nothing.04:41
Dr_Willisrobertzaccour:  yes.. you need to put in the right modulename04:41
robertzaccourDr_Willis, oh, I don't know what that is04:42
Dr_Willisrobertzaccour: neiother do i04:42
Dr_Williswhich is why i said 'modulename' ;)04:42
robertzaccourDr_Willis, do you know how to find what the modulename is?04:43
Dr_Willislsmod shows them all.. but what each webcam uses..  no idea.04:43
Dr_Willisit may have  the name of the webcam somewhere in the name of the module04:44
AethrsDo you happen to have a link to the repair tool?  Those grub links are huge and searching for "repair" returns no results within the very, very long pages.04:45

Dr_Willisheh/ my /boot/abi-3.2.0-23-generic partion is like 5 gb.. it rarely gets full04:51
Dr_Willisoops. ;) tabcompletion04:51
Dr_Willisi do keep iso files in it.04:51
AethrsFor some reason the installer made it 228M, and it's full.04:51
AethrsAnd I can't boot, update initramfs, or anything.04:51
Aethrsi don't even know what I can delete.04:51

undecimI've got an encrypted home directory on one computer, and want to be able to access it via NFS on another computer, but all I see is the "Access-Your-Private-Data.desktop" and "README.txt" files. How do I view the ecryptfs files with nfs?04:53
robertzaccourDr_Willis, would it help if I pastebin the output?04:53
AethrsSo Dr_Willis- Where am I supposed to find that grub-fix-utility ?04:54
fhdundecim: I'm thinking that the user whose homedir that is has to be logged in for the files to be accessible.04:54
undecimfhd: I am04:55
Dr_WillisAethrs:  the boot-repair is a gui tool you can install, i normally just need to use  the grub-install command.04:55
fhdundecim: Hm, I was pretty sure they got mounted on login.04:55
undecimfhd: In fact, that's where I'm running this chat from. sftp works just fine.04:55
Dr_Willismy /boot/ is taking up 50mb right now04:55
undecimfhd: They get mounted, but as a FUSE filesystem. The nfs-kernel-server doesn't read it.04:55
fhdundecim: Can root see the files? True on my system.04:56
undecimfhd: Yes, but not nfs04:56
fhdundecim: Oh, no idea then, sorry.04:56
undecimI'm thinking I need to install a userspace NFS server....04:56
fhdundecim: I thought NFS was user space :P04:56
undecimfhd: Not the one in the ubuntu repos, lol04:57
Dr_Willisi think theres like 2 differnt nfs serverws in the repos04:57
ubottunfs is the network file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo for information on installing and configuring NFS.04:57
undecimDr_Willis: I only see nfs-kernel-server.... Google finds nfs-user-server for Hardy.... 4 years behind for me04:57
Dr_Willisones in the kernel - so its faster04:57
AethrsSo it's something like grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/vda04:58
Dr_Willis-root would be a path to a mounted directory not a deivce i belive04:58
Dr_Willisunless you are using a weird mountpointnasme ;)04:58
AethrsManual page says "--root-directory=DIR"04:58
Dr_Willisor i am reading the word wrapped command formated badly on irc'04:59
Dr_Willisi cant recall if you wantg /mnt/ or /mnt/boot/04:59
Dr_Willis if your /boot/ is on its own partition. it mayy want just that dir.05:00

AethrsIs that on the ubuntu website?05:05
Dr_Willisits on the boot-repaur url i pasted earlier i think..,05:06
Dr_WillisIm not sure if you MUST use 64bit  for a 64bit repair..  but id think it would be a good idea05:06

wilee-nileeAethrs, run the create bootinfo and paste it to a pastebin  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair05:06

Madpilotnext question for someone trying to like Unity - can the "messaging" dropdown be customized? Having Thunderbutt there when I use Evolution is a minor nuisance.05:12
vadi2I'm having a severe issue with 12.04's home encryption. I can't find out which files are taking up space - the disk usage analyzer says only 8gb is used by home when I scan it, yet when I scan the whole filesystem, it says 90gb is used by home. The computer is also complaining that there is -NO- disk space left.05:12
Dr_Willislaumonier:  after you use dd to dd an iso to theusb, you will need to 'zero' it out and repartition it back to a normal filesystem for unetbootin or other tools to be able to  write to it05:12
vadi2Does anyone know how to fix this? I don't think it will boot next time I restart it.05:12

lymoni keep getting the "cdboot : coudlnt find ntldr" ive burned ubuntu to disk and put it on usb and nothing... just keep getting that05:42
Dr_Willistry it and see.. i dont use ftp any more... dump ftp and use ssh/scp....05:42
BlackWebone sec i'll try that05:42
Madpilotlymon, that's a Windows install guide and sounds like a Win install error...05:42

lymonim doing the del and selecting usb and disc05:43

Dr_Willisyou might have made usb wrongly05:43
lymonlike i did the whole boot usb and disk and yeah...05:43
Dr_Willisntldr = a common windows error message05:43
lymonhow so? all ubuntu said for install was copy .iso and put in flash05:44
Dr_Willislymon:  you just put the iso on  the usb as a file? whats the contents of the usb now?05:44
L3topvexaxv: they drop support rather a lot... typically because they add support for something new which causes some sort of problem with X range of cards... the degree of the problem varies.05:44
Guest58135a la conchesumadre con esta gua!05:45
ThePendulumDr_Willis: Probably something along the lines of ubuntu12.04_amd64.iso05:45
L3toptheir response is simply "that is no longer supported" vexaxv05:45
vexaxvL3top, well i could always download from amd's site05:45
L3topbut RS/RV 6xx-8xx are explicitly not supported.05:45
Dr_Willislymon:  you did it wrong then/missread the  guide05:46
Dr_Willislymon:  you image, or use a tool like unetbootin to put the iso on the usb in a bootable format05:46
Dr_Willislymon:  tools at the pendrivelinux web site make it  easy05:46

WizardGood morning.05:47
Dr_WillisThePendulum:  ive had unetbootin fail quiet a lot over the yers..   the pendrive tools have several differnt tools. and are often updated a lot fasgter05:47
Dr_Willisunetbootin for a long time couldent do a persistant save file, or use grub2 ..notsure of its featuers now05:48
vexaxvL3top, would i get better performance if i downloaded from amd's site as opposed to the proprietary restricted drivers?05:48
Dr_Willisalso i dont think unetbootin can set up several differnt disrtos on the pendrive, like  some of the pendrivelinux sites tools can thats a biggie for me05:49
Dr_Willis16gb flash drive with 16 differnt disrtos ;)05:49
ThePendulumDr_Willis: What do you mean? There are plenty of distro´s you may use it for, even some of the BSD ones05:49

ThePendulumI installed Ubuntu on my SSD, but Windows is ever since completely preventing from anything but itself to boot05:55
dj__yeah the ip works but not the hostname05:55
Dr_Willisdj__:  dirty fix. edit /etc/hosts and have the hotsname map to  the ip# ;)05:55
Dr_Willisi think theres a better fix.. but i always use static ips on my home lan05:55
dj__ok then what if the ip is a dynamic ip given by the dhcp05:56
Dr_Willisi set my dhcp server to always assign ip based on mac.. so the boxs get the same ip.05:56
Dr_Willisany new machines get a higher range of ip#'s05:56

fidel_iceroot: i dont need the nv-part of the gfx on linux anyways06:04

dj__well linux is just a side project for me to learn but i will do as it will help me if i ever have to work with a linux server XD06:14
icerootdj__: on a linux-server you need the 4 tools i mentioned06:14

Dr_Willisnone of us are.. nirmal06:17
dj__thats true but its the same language with slight changes06:17
L3topvexaxv: I am just telling you, that your card is unsupported. If it works for you... awesome... I am a big fan of not fixing what isn't broken... ATI does not produce such a list to my knowledge... it would make my job a whole lot easier. Instead they put out a memo noting that they have dropped support for xxxx or have added support for xxxx I am still looking for that.06:17
icerootdj__: ssh can do so many things, e.g. i am using ssh to write this message to you, i am using ssh to copy some files, so have access to another machine, so use a secure ftp protocol and so on06:17
chigybuntuI have tried to ssh to a blackbuntu machine and the connection is refused...06:18

wilee-nileeDr_Willis, you ever figure out how to clean that casper?07:06
Dr_Willisi rarely use the eprsistance file stuff wilee-nilee  - what do you mean clean?07:07
wilee-nileeDr_Willis, the casper gets full it wont clear with a autoremove or autoclean or the cache I believe07:07

enclosedhello, i noticed that the 12.04 image says it is 701 MB does this mean it will not fit onto a CD-R?07:08

vexaxvikonia, if u hold shift grub comes up, then u can click recovery mode i can still go the the login screen but the "unity" session and gnome session had disappeared from the menu so when i type in my password and log in nothing happens08:35
wilee-nileelukicat, had you installed drivers before this change08:35
lukicathmm not really, just did a clean installation of ubuntu 12.0408:36
ikoniavexaxv: recovery mode should not be a deskop/gui08:36
vexaxvikonia, what do u mean08:37
freakolowskyok this is getting ridiculus ... i have 8GB of RAM (40% free), ihave i7 quadcore proc (top shows nothing above 5%), i have a Radeon with 1GB RAM ... yet unity i still glitchy when switching wrkspaces .. what gives08:37
wilee-nileelukicat, graphics are not really a strong area for me but the channel needs to know exactly what you have run this command and post the results.  lspci | grep VGA08:37
unkn-errorwhen updating, upgrading and installing packages with apt, synaptic and aptitude dose the package manager do a check (of hash, md5 or sha etc.) to see if the downloaded archive/packages are saine(healthly)?08:37
ikoniavexaxv: when you launch into recovery mode, it should drop you into a shell, not a desktop08:37
vexaxvikonia, it brings me to a menu08:38
SolarisBoyyea i think it does which asks you what you want to do - run fsck etc etc etc08:38
vexaxvikonia, resume clean dpkg failsafex fsck grub network root system-summary08:38
ikoniaversi: what are the menu options08:38
ikoniavexaxv: which one are you picking ?08:38
ikoniavexaxv: which option are you selecting ?08:38
vexaxvikonia, network to enable networking (my blue light comes on) then root so i can get in the terminal but if i wait 3 sec if retrys to boot normal08:39
vexaxvcant even type anything in08:39
ikoniavexaxv: just select "root"08:39
stephanmgwilee-nilee: okay, thank you08:39
enclosedi am trying to boot from the live cd at first i was getting a black screen with a blinking dash in the top right hand corner so i set nomodeset and it started to boot but i got this error.. can someone help me make sense of it? http://db.tt/hKiIWiUT08:39
lukicat00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation System Controller Hub (SCH Poulsbo) Graphics Controller (rev 06)08:39
vexaxvikonia, k hang on08:40
lukicatwilee-nilee, i think its an known error with this ugly graphic card, going to google it again...08:40
vexaxvk im in the terminal now what08:40
vexaxvikonia, how can i turn on the internet via terminal08:40
ikoniavexaxv: now you should be able to install the missing packages08:40
ikoniavexaxv: use the init script08:40
ikoniavexaxv: or manually set it up08:40
ikoniavexaxv: eg: ip or ifconfig08:41
vexaxvikonia, my internet isnt on, i have to click enable networking lol but thats what messes it up, so what do i type to turn on the wifi08:41
ikoniavexaxv: I'm busy patching a machine at the moment and you don't appear to be listening to what I say when I say "don't click enable networking" - manually setup the network connection with "ip" or "ifconfig"08:42
SolarisBoyifconfig <interface> <ip address> netmask <your netmask> up would work08:42
vexaxvikonia, i never said i did click it i heard what u said, i dont know how to manually do it08:42
SolarisBoyvexaxv: ^08:43
SolarisBoyim assuming your in a root shell and the user root - else you need to prepend sudo08:43
ngabahm, I've just realized that month == minute08:43
vexaxvsays the package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened08:45
vexaxvwhen i try to install a pkg via terminal08:45
sheepyI usually use apt-get to update, and it had been holding back a kernel update, but yesterday I used the GUI and it updated the kernel and started chucking up loads of crash report errors on boot and unity 3d has switched back to unity 2d08:46
curiousxaloha all :D08:47
sheepyI just updated the kernel again today, the crash report popups are gone now, but I seem to be stuck in Unity 2d08:47
sheepy*errors on login, not boot08:47
vexaxvhow do i connect to another computer via ip on ubuntu 12.0408:47
vexaxvlike teamviewer08:47
SolarisBoyyou use a connection protocol08:48
fizyplanktonvexaxv: if all you need is a shell, use ssh08:48
vexaxvi dont think that would even work..08:48
sheepyis there any way to get unity to try running in the normal unity mode, as it seems to be stuck in unity 2d, even though I am not logging in using the "Ubuntu 2d" option at the login screen.08:48
curiousxvexaxv: with teamviewr08:48
ubottuVNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX08:48
vexaxvi accidentally deleted gnome-session and i casnt login now i need to reinstall it but i cant get to a terminal with internet to reinstall08:48
vexaxvthats my problem08:48
SolarisBoyumm - did you try to do what they told you vexaxv?08:49
curiousxoh! ye, ubuntu has with vino server but in order to the remote machine you have to open the port 590008:49
SolarisBoywhich is bring up the interface manually while in safe mode?08:49
SolarisBoylike the ifconfig line previously shown? - or is that you didn't read that?08:49
vexaxvSolarisBoy, yes but i dont think i did it properly08:49
SolarisBoyok - so fix the command it works08:49
vexaxvi did ifconfig08:49
vexaxvjust now08:49
vexaxvi need to turn on wlan008:50
SolarisBoyagain -08:50
lymonso ummm yeah guys...08:50
lymonlooks like it works when i used the hdmi port08:50
gkaklasvexaxv, to enable a network interface use "ifup wlan0"08:50
lymonam i all safe?08:50
lymonhold on as i restart that pc and check08:50
SolarisBoylol - cute08:51
vexaxvit says unknown interface08:51
lymonto install wireless adapter somehow and then ill install wine and DIABLO308:51
SolarisBoyvexaxv: im thinking you use network manager?08:52
lymonthis makes me sad though the problem the whole time was not using hdmi08:52
SolarisBoylymon: thats not the problem really08:52
lymonare you sure?08:52
vexaxvSolarisBoy, i use it to enable my internet when i can actually use my laptop..08:52
lymoneverything is running smoothly now08:52
SolarisBoythats because you swapped to hdmi instead of doing nomodeset08:52
gkaklasvexaxv, does wlan0 appear in the output of "ifconfig"?08:52
vexaxvSolarisBoy, wlan0 popped up when i did those command u told me with the ip netmask etc08:52
SolarisBoyso in turn you moved your computer to fix it - non optimal but if it works fine08:52
vexaxvgkaklas, no08:53
lymonit works this way better08:53
vexaxvgkaklas, only lo08:53
SolarisBoyvexaxv: ifup is for configured interfaces08:53
SolarisBoyit assumes you have some file that ifup will use08:53
lymonsince what that comp is for is for editing and this monitor is well.... dimmish08:53
SolarisBoyif your using network manager - you dont have that file08:53
Knightwisehey everyone08:53
fizyplanktonvexaxv: im assuming you are in the recovery root shell. are you in the shell with networking?08:54
vexaxvSolarisBoy, okay so what do i need to do to get the internet working..08:54
Knightwiseanyone have any experience with booting 12.04 on a G4 imac ?08:54
SolarisBoybring up the wlan the same way network manager would08:54
KnightwiseI try to boot from the cd but the sceen just goes blanc08:54
gkaklasvexaxv, then you have to configure the wlan0 interface manually...08:54
vexaxvfizyplankton, i am but when i click enable networking after about 5 sec it trys to boot again which takes me out of recovery mode08:54
vexaxvgkaklas, k how08:54
SolarisBoyfirst is wireless your only option? vexaxv?08:55
vexaxvSolarisBoy, yes08:55
SolarisBoyok - then carry on08:55
fizyplanktonvexaxv: another idea, since it looks like internet wont work for quite some time, if you only deleted the gnome-session folder (wherever that may have been), just live boot from a cd and copy and paste it08:56
vexaxvwhen im in recovery mode when i click enable networking then go back to the terminal i type ctrl alt delete i think that may be why it trys to load, whats the appropriate key to hit to go back08:56
vexaxvfizyplankton, i have ubuntu on a usb08:56
fizyplanktonvexaxv: is the broken ubuntu on the usb?08:56
vexaxvfizyplankton, no its a new copy08:56
fizyplanktonvexaxv: then if you just deleted a folder, boot live from the usb and copy it08:57
vexaxvfizyplankton, i deleted the pkg via synaptic08:57
SolarisBoyor you can boot the cd mount the drive and chroot into it08:57
fizyplanktonnow thats an idea.08:57
llutz_vexaxv: boot into normal mode, login at console, install your package08:57
Moscherkoboldhello everyone, is this the right place to ask a question about ubuntu one?08:57
gkaklasvexaxv, could you repeat your problem with gnome..?08:57
vexaxvk so wait if im on live desktop via usb how do i get into my o.s to install gnome-session back08:57
llutz_vexaxv: why do you use recovery mode with all its limitations for this?08:58
vexaxvi accidentally deleted gnome-session08:58
fizyplanktonllutz_: its not that simple08:58
llutz_fizyplankton: it is08:58
SolarisBoyllutz_: problem being setting up his wireless is a task for a beginner08:58
vexaxvso when i try to login theres nothing not kdm gnome unity08:58
jstooneHi, I'm using Xmonad as my default window-manager and I need to execute a cmd when i login. What is the best way of doing this?08:58

llutz_vexaxv: console-login not X08:58
llutz_vexaxv: boot, pres alt-ctrl-f1, login08:58
SolarisBoylet see if that works.....08:59
gkaklasvexaxv, what does come up when you boot?08:59
jstoonellutz_: that is tty1 right?08:59
llutz_jstoone: yes08:59
jstoone llutz_: thanks08:59
llutz_jstoone: line above was not meant for you08:59
vexaxvi can boot normal and it goes to the login screen09:00
vexaxvbut when u switch from unity to gnome09:00

jstoonellutz_: have to go, but thanks!09:01
llutz_vexaxv: press "ALT-CTRL-F2"09:01
llutz_jstoone: line above was not meant for you, i havent answered to your problem09:01
vexaxvllutz, beeps again then nothing09:02
llutz_vexaxv: then you have way more problems than just a removed package09:02
vexaxvllutz, wait it opped up then disappeared09:02
vexaxvhang on09:02
fizyplanktonvexaxv: if your not in any graphics manager, press alt-sysrq(aka print screen)-r then do ctrl-alt-f1. if you are in a display manager, do ctrl-alt-sysrq-r then ctrl-alt-f109:02
SolarisBoyi love those sysrq combos =) super old school09:03
fizyplanktoni know right!09:03
SolarisBoylols ;>09:03
fizyplanktonunfortunatly, i frequantly have to use REISUB because my xorg.conf is a nightmare09:03
fizyplanktonand i refuse to try to clean it up because it took me 14 solid hours to get it working09:04
SolarisBoyyea - sounds like me - i haven't touched anything named xorg. in a long time - my box works lol09:04
sbatteyfizyplankton it;s not just your xorg.conf that is a nightmare….the entire x system is a nightmare09:04
sbatteyI say we cleanse it with fire.09:04
pbx2how to move the close buttons etc to the right in ubuntu 12.04 lts09:04
SolarisBoyi think its more so what people do with x to break it09:04
sbatteyX is flawed for what it's used for.09:05
fizyplanktonsbattey: get this. i cant use xrandr. im stuck bridging 2 physical graphics cards across 4 monitors with.....wait for it........XCINERAMA09:05
SolarisBoyoh heck nah09:05
sbatteySounds raunchy.09:05
lukicathow to let ubuntu 12.04 look like e.g. 11.10?09:06
SolarisBoyassuming you have what DE setup?09:06
SolarisBoylukicat: do you mean classic gnome?09:06
fizyplanktonget this. the when the screensaver turns off, you can see a drop in mem usage on the system monitor graph. hey, a fullscreen app across over five and a half million pixels takes alot of memory09:06
vexaxvk i got it to work and im in the terminal again but this time when i type ifconfig eth0 pops up09:06
SolarisBoyim sure the macro link is just a coming,, give it a sec..09:06
vexaxvhow do i enable it so i can download the pkgs09:07
SolarisBoyfizyplankton: madness !! lol09:07
pbx2I only get 2d option in login...i don't think you can get gnome in ubuntu 12.0409:07
vexaxvpbx2, u can09:07
SolarisBoyvexaxv: thats not hte command i gave you =)09:07
pbx2vexaxv, how?09:07
SolarisBoyifconfig lists interfaces - more options/arguments convfigures them09:07
vexaxvSolarisBoy, okay what do i do solaris09:07
llutz_vexaxv: "nmcli con"   it should show you your connections. take the connection name of your wifi-connection and "nmcli con id "that_name" up"09:07
SolarisBoylook into nmcli thing that llutz mentioned09:08
SolarisBoyits likely you best option09:08
vexaxvpbx2, synaptic, install gnome-session09:08
SolarisBoy&& no internet in safe more - wlan only interface - configured via nm - sounds like llutz_ hit it on the head to me..09:08
pbx2so its not possible to move the close buttons to the right with unity?09:08

vexaxvllutz, im trying to connect to ballhome so how do i type it09:09
pbx2iceroot, the bug link has way too many comments to go through09:10
SolarisBoyas in the network? ballhome? if you bring up the interface via nm09:10
icerootpbx2: there is one command with gconf09:10
llutz_vexaxv: "ballhome" is given under NAME when you run "nmcli con"?09:10
SolarisBoyit would automatically look for you remembered networks afaik09:10
SolarisBoyi think thats the SSID he wants in on09:10
vexaxvllutz, yes09:10
pbx2iceroot, do we press alt + f2 to go to gconf09:11
icerootpbx2: gconftool-2 --set /apps/metacity/general/button_layout --type string "menu:minimize,maximize,close"09:11
llutz_vexaxv: nmcli con id "ballhome" up09:11
icerootpbx2: type that in a terminal09:11
pbx2iceroot, thanks. it works :)09:11
vexaxvllutz, says error con and id are not valid09:12
SolarisBoyis the interface up?09:12
SolarisBoyim sitting looking at my nmcli con output and i see my wireless nets from home09:12

llutz_mayanks43: uname -r09:40
mayanks43llutz_: 3.3.609:41
SolarisBoyd8bhatta: you can use it manually like this ssh -i .pub or you can setup for .ssh/config file to point it automaticlly each time09:41
llutz_mayanks43: check changelogs for 3.3.x then. 3.2.x has come with iwlwifi, no idea why 3.3. doesn't09:42
georgeeI tried to install suphp and Browser starts downloading PHP files any ideas?09:42
SolarisBoyd8bhatta: technically the command would be more like 'ssh -i /path/to/key.pub user@host' but as stated you can setup in .ssh/config or the global alternative to point the Host and what user and what key to use - and then you can simply do 'ssh hostname' and the setttings will be read in09:42

llutz_!checkinstall | Malsasa09:56
ubottuMalsasa: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!09:56

fidel_eul3r: i am not using putty myself - but yeah: defining protocol and host ip should be everything you need to do afaik09:57
CrypticSquaredso back to my 3D ubuntu problem.. anyone seen it before?09:58
fidel_putty should ask for the user afterwards afaik09:58
HyperbyteSolarisBoy, that is very much appreciated.  Samba logs say on connect that primary group SID of a user, does not match the domain of the user.  pdbedit -u jan -v  shows this to be correct, different SID's.  This is the full debug output form pdbedit -u jan -v:  http://dev.hfive.nl/sambaldap.txt09:58

SolarisBoyi swear i saw that before.. hmm09:59
kippyHow can I reconnect to same remote x-session after a disconnect? I am using xrdp on remote machine and remmina to connect09:59
HyperbyteThe group exists in ldap.  'net groupmap list' confirms it.  I've ran the LDAP query manually, it gives exactly one result - the correct group.  Yet somehow Samba thinks it is not a domain group.09:59
HyperbyteThe type of the group is specified while creating the groupmap as type=domain though, and LDAP sambaGroupType is 2, which reflects that.10:00
Dr_Williskippy:  try reconnecting yet? its possible the x-session closed and you cant reconnect10:00
SolarisBoysilly question your nsswitch didn't change?10:00
HyperbyteSolarisBoy, mmm...10:00
kippyDr_willis, i reconnected, but it gives me a new session i think with the desktop, I can't see my running applications, although pgrep lists them10:01

HyperbyteThe whole problem is I can't log on.  I can't log on because my primary group SID isn't part of the domain.  The group SID isn't part of the domain because Samba assigns another one, because it won't recognise my primary gorup iN DALP.10:26

CalypSo I gave up on the loading boot logo freeze-up and tried another computer. Same thing, only it don't clear the initial bios bootscreen, so this one is like: "Booting atapi CD ROM:"  ... "Loading boot logo..."  and then nothing more. (12.4 on an old machine (read "Pentium 2")10:52

ubottuCalyp: The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/alternative-download#alternate - See also !minimal10:57
xevioxhi, where can I change the default sender address ("From" field) of system generated emails?10:57
yeatsCalyp: but... I would assume that machine probably would not run regular Ubuntu - you might want to try Xubuntu or Lubuntu10:57
stuengiceroot: thanks I got xbmc running nicely as normal user, installed lightdm10:57
xevioxI've installed ssmtp and be able to send messages through it, sadly it doesn't work without a valid sender address as parameter10:58
xevioxbut I want to use the option to rewrite the sender to the defaults one to be able to also get system messages sent..10:58
stuengwhen linux starts up my system spends a long time at "waiting for network configuration" I have commented out everything in /etc/network/interfaces. I dont want the system to wait for the network on boot, what I can do ?10:58
stuenganyone know of something that will monitor my bandwidth use? in real time? nice GUI looking thing?11:01
SolarisBoywaiting for network means you have or may have a slow network11:02
icerootstueng: nice to hear that11:02
SolarisBoyrather than bandwidth consumption - maybe your getting slow dhcp assignment or something?11:02
sirriffsalotyeats: I tried the command with nouveau, no luck.. nothing pops up, just a new line of "xxxx@xxxx:-#"11:02
stuengSolarisBoy: I dont want network, I commented out everything in interfaces I want to contorl the network after I boot11:02
sirriffsalotyeats: any other ideas?:)11:02
SolarisBoybut - like you should let interfaces bring up lo and stuff11:02
SolarisBoystueng: leave lo up dude..11:02
dontknowchromium still 18, great!!!!!11:02
Calypyeats: thanks, on another p3 it says thatthe kernel requires a feature missing in the CPU ( pae cmov )11:03
stuengyeah ill uncomment lo11:03
sirriffsalotyeats:  I don't have the any headers for lowlatency according to synaptic, could that be the reason?11:03
stuengits sat there waiting for something though... but whatever it is is not in interfaces so where else would it be ?11:03
SolarisBoystueng: then once you do that ok - sure disable the interfaces.. it really depends _where_ they are managed at11:03
SolarisBoystueng: network manager maybe?11:03
SolarisBoystueng: anyway once you get a clean boot - restart network manually and see if it spits a clue on console or logs11:04
stuengSolarisBoy: the box is portable, in different locations it will connect oto different networks.  I want to manage the networks from inside XBMC with the nm-manager plugin11:04
SolarisBoyhmm - does that negate anything i mentioned ?11:05
stuengSolarisBoy: network manager works independantly of interfaces? is there a file I can edit to look at what its trying to do?11:05
SolarisBoySolarisBoy: you can have both running - if it's interfaces afaik networkmanager should ignore - but yes there are more than one place or way an interface can get up'd11:05
SolarisBoygenerally if it's happening dynamically on boot on a ubuntu box - its interfaces or network manager for defaults11:06
stuengSolarisBoy: right, and how would I configure NM? from the terminal? which file(s)?11:06
SolarisBoystueng: nothing says you don't have some other not so common network utility running - but technically its not that fuzzy check network manager - check interfaces11:06
SolarisBoystueng: either or11:06
stuengI dont have a window manager so I need to do this from terminal11:07
SolarisBoystueng: most users will default to the applet configuration - but i think you can use the command line the sme11:07
SolarisBoystueng: ^^11:07
SolarisBoystueng: nm-tool i think will atleast print the configs for you11:07
SolarisBoystueng: rather the interfaces its managing - and their status11:08
=== Guest10018 is now known as MaNU_
stuengSolarisBoy: yeah it spits out a list of SSIDs in range and the status of  eth011:08
SolarisBoyso there you go11:08
=== MaNU_ is now known as MaNU__
SolarisBoydisable them there - either by command line - which i dont use nm so can't help much more than telling you to man the command11:09
SolarisBoybut stueng: if you see wlan ssid's there and you see eth0 thats whats managing those and thats whats bringing them up11:09
shawny78hello all, probably a simple question, but could someone tell me how to find out who is logged into your system (I'm guessing 'who' command) but also, what IP they are loggedd in from?11:09
stuengSolarisBoy: for example, in the gui, you can tick a box tha t says  "connect automatically"11:09
stuengSolarisBoy: so what I am looking for is the text based equivilant to unticking that box I guess11:10
SolarisBoystueng: you need to man the command11:10
jribshawny78: you can use "who" or "w"11:10

SolarisBoystueng: man/research - i just mentioned im not as fmailiar nm - not used to using it - i set up my interfaces manually - i hate managers11:11
SolarisBoyso if your looking for help on the commands to use - i'd refer you to man - or one of the folks in this room, they probably use nm more than me..11:11

dontknowwhy does official repo still have chromium 18, not 19?11:18
ubottuTo install the Linux (kernel) headers, open a terminal and: sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) To install headers for libraries, you need the accompanying -dev packages11:18
SolarisBoyi had a client who couldn't find the 'pseudo' command - we kicked around the idea of making a global alias for pseudo='sudo' but it was to much11:18
Dr_Willisdontknow:  because its not ready yet..11:18

SolarisBoydoesn't mean it goes in the repo11:19
manish411in archlinux we start gnome-session through a script called xinitrc which is read by the login manager11:19

WhereIsMySpoonwtf is going on11:20
SolarisBoylike on arch - the default install no dm - so you can either start from Xinitrc or do a DM - if you do DM - it will likely start your sessions and such11:20
SolarisBoyits an "authenticated" session much like how you start ssh-agent etc - in fact i think closely related11:20
Dr_Willismanish411:  you can create custome x sessions by either making a .desktop file for the session or using the .xsession file and select custom/user in kdm11:20

Every time I open a directory with Nautalis, even after the folder is open the "Opening <directory name>" hangs for a while.

HyperbyteThe idmap lines did the trick, but -still- Samba was assigning the group a SID of the local server, rather than the domain.  I couldn't explain it.  When I gave the local server the same name as the domain (so the SIDs were identical to start with), things started working.11:53

HyperbyteSolarisBoy, so it isn't super-pretty, and I still don't know exactly -why- Samba was futzing with the domain group SID's... but at this point I'm so happy it works, I cannot stand still to care about the why. :)11:54

XanoI need to delete all files and folders of which the names start with a period that are located (anywhere in the tree) in a given folder. rm -R is only recursive in that it deletes all contents if the match is a folder, but it does not search the hierarchy itself. How do I do this?12:22

L3topsJasonGriffee: try the text version of the installer... I don't know what versions you have installed in the past, but clearly you are having an issue, probably gpu related, to the unity desktop. You may have to use the text based installer until such time as you can use a driver more appropirate than the framebuffer development driver packed in the installer.14:39

level15hi, all: i have 3 LVM volumes on 3 different servers. I formatted them as ext 4. They all mount fine. However, when the system is booting, it complains it cannot check them because of too high revision of the FS or damaged superblock (see http://pastebin.com/RVgrFk5U). If I do file -sL /dev/vg00/bacula_backups, it says it is indeed an ext4 FS, mounted or unclean. ANy ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.14:58

beandogDr_willis: not lately.  Mine runs on eSATA, thank goodness16:08
Dr_willisI have a few external sata's but they never seem to work right.16:09
hairydogeSATA is faster than USB3 or no?16:09
ausnworddd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/sda takes 45 min no matter16:09
BLZbubbahairydog: i would expect the drive to be the limiting factor either way16:09
beandogBLZbubba: yahp.16:09
Dr_willisyea - the hd themselfs are slower then what the buss/connections can handle i belive.16:09
hairydoglet's say you have the same speed drive but one is USB3 one is eSATA, what would be a faster transfer rate?16:10
Dr_willisevery improvement, leapfrogs other things to move the main bottleneck somewhere else.16:10
beandogprobably eSATA16:10
ausnwordeSATA to hdmi16:10
hairydogoh nice16:10

pgibDoes anyone else dislike the "Enter" key behavior in the Unity HUD?  Pressing enter will execute whatever the first item is on the list - however, sometimes the list is slow to update.  Case in point: type "gimp" and press enter. Evince starts because the list didn't update in time.16:11

BLZbubba"The transfer rates for eSATA and USB3 are very close. A really good eSATA setup should win by a narrow margin."16:11
hairydoganyhow, can anyone help me figure out what I did wrong16:11
pgibso now, if I want to issue a command, I need to wait an additional second for the hud to say "Oh he's done typing. Let's update the list"  In my opinion, after pressing enter it should perform one final "update" even if it is invisible to the user16:11

kyle__e33: The VDI format is the same across distros & systems.  This is a virtualbox issue.  All you need to do is make new VMs and point them to the VDI files.  Someone in a virtualbox channel may be able to help.17:45

Guest90451kyle__, I've got the server name from outlook express, but I can't configure it on thenderbird17:47

LucidGuysk1special, nVidia?17:49
BA707First things first...  On the login screen, whatever account I click on, the first time I click on it after entering that screen (or re-entering it), there is no field for the password.  I must CANCEL that first attempt, then on the second try - the password field comes up.  Is there a fix for this ?17:49
kyle__Guest90451: You just put it in as an IMAP server, and (if you're on it's local network) the SMTP server.  If you're not on it's local network, you may have to find another SMTP server.  For whatever reason the thunderbird build in ubuntu doesn't let you save your account & account settings if the SMTP server is bad/non-existant/not-responding.17:49

Dr_willisnewlou-os,  and last i used zorin. i figured i was better off with ubuntu. ;)18:04
diakiteok thank you18:04
JessicaWd8bhatta: if you're just using to let your php script send mail, be lazy, uninstall sendmail and install ssmtp. It's super easy to configure.18:04
d8bhattaJessicaW: hmm...ok..18:05
quixotedonBA707: sometimes fault things like that happen but it only occasionally happens18:05
newlou-osanyone know where Zorin board is?18:05
Dr_willisnewlou-os,  id say check their homepage/forums for mention of irc channels. it might be #zorin  it might not be on this server at all18:06
BA707quixotedon: I have lost track of where the utility is for changing the background and layout of the login screen.  Is that still available ?  Perhaps changing that will straighten out the prob ?18:06

newlou-oszorin is ubuntu isn't it?18:07
JessicaWd8bhatta: but, if you plan on sending and receiving mail, either configure sendmail or install postifix.18:07
Dr_willisnewlou-os,  just because its based on ubuntu, does not make it supported here.18:07

jiffe98is there a way of finding recently installed packages?18:09
JessicaWd8bhatta: well, ssmtp is definitely the easiest. It uses whatever mail server you already have setup. For example, lets say you use gmail. You point ssmtp to use mail.gmail.com and give it the authentication info and it takes care of the rest.18:10
kanfathufoolhu_hei i need some help18:10
Gewinnennew to kubuntu, trying to update my java. I'm having some trouble18:10
Dr_willisjiffe1,  must be. ive noticed the 'logwatch' utility giveing me a summary of recently installed packages. so the log files in /var/log perhaps have info18:10
kanfathufoolhu_i need to fix permissions to ubuntu18:10
kyle__I'm running a script from crontab, that checks for a dead vnc cleans up and runs a new one, or runs a new vnc iff none is running.18:10
kanfathufoolhu_i am having extreme problems with ubuntu18:10
JessicaWd8bhatta: if you don't have access to an external smtp server then, use postfix, i personally find it easier to configure than sendmail.18:10
BA707quixotedon:  Nope...  Just installed this a couple days ago and have not really tried anything other than the OEM tools/settings.   My next step is to d/l all the updates, but I wanted to be SURE none of THEM were going to break the install or cause instability, first.  Are there any 'updates' that I should NOT do ?18:11
Dr_williskyle__,  i have seen ways to use xinit, or upstart to spawn a vnc session as needed.18:11
MustaKotkaHi, I'm trying to install the latest Ubuntu on my VirtualBox. I would like it to "Download updates while installing", but it says that I am not connected to Internet... How should I proceed?18:11
d8bhattaJessicaW: ok..will try ssmtp first and see how it goes18:11
kyle__Inside of those VNC sessions (run from crontab), the shell settings are screwed up.  It ignores the shell in /etc/passwd, and manually running bash it refuses to read it's .bash_profile and .bashrc18:11
Dr_willisMustaKotka,  either way wont matter much. i wonder why your vm is not connectged to the internet however.18:11
JessicaWd8bhatta: if that doesn't work for you, here's a basic postfix setup. it's what's preferred by the ubuntu community. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PostfixBasicSetupHowto18:12
kyle__Dr_willis: True, but there's no reason this shouldn't work.18:12
quixotedonBA707: i think try updating the security updates first18:12
Dr_williskyle__,  personally i ssh in, and start vncserver as needed..18:12
Dr_williskyle__,  i find the whole auto launching/keeping it going just adds to much hassle18:12
MustaKotkaDr_willis, any ideas how to connect it or should I ask google?18:12
quixotedonBA707: recommended updates can be done later, u know every new version comes with some bug, they might be fixed after updating18:13

kyle__kanfathufoolhu_: Sure, you can specify where it is in the apache config files.  Or if you mean ~kyle ~george pages, that's called public home folders.18:15
kanfathufoolhu_dagerik: how to i create a symlink18:15
eokkyle_: grab desktop, sound from mic, and webcam. put webcam as an overlay in the bottom right corner, send it to vlc and stream it out on http18:15
dagerikkanfathufoolhu_: The "ln" command.18:15
Dr_willisMustaKotka,  check the network card settings perhaps. vbox always connected to the internet for me when ivd ran linux in it.18:15
eokkyle_ i dont have a webcam here, so i don't know if my code will work18:15
Dr_williskanfathufoolhu_,  the web servers normally have some security settings where they may or may not follow links. for security reasons18:16
MustaKotkaDr_willis, thanks for the help.18:16
BA707LadyNikon: Yes..  Definately..18:16
kyle__eok: Sure, easy to do with X and any video player that can render to the X background (mplayer can), but with gnome/kde desktops its a bit harder, as they often write to that layer for backgorunds and stuff.18:16
kanfathufoolhu_Dr_willis: so will the sym link work and if so what shoud i do since i am pretty new to linux18:16
dagerikkanfathufoolhu_: Here is an example: cd /var/www && ln -s /home/john/ johns_folder18:16
eokkyle_ i might have figured out how to do it all with just ffmpeg and vlc, but getting this here: failed to avformat_open_input 'v4l2'18:17
kyle__eok: I used to play movies fullscreen as my background, while working (fluxbox wm + mplayer)18:17
kanfathufoolhu_dagerik: will it fix the permission issues18:17
Dr_williskanfathufoolhu_,  no idea. Id keep the web files in the proper dirs and not be tossing links around.18:17
BA707LadyNikon:  Got a lot of laughs from that guy, especially in the early years (WYNO Radio), got a little rough later on, but still a good comedian...18:17
eokkyle_: I dont have a webcame here so not sure if its a wrong argument or not18:17
dagerikkanfathufoolhu_: What permission issues do you have?18:17
BA707Ooops..  Off topic..  Sorry..  I'm outta here..  Bye All..18:17

Fat-Thingwat about monodevelop!? does it support perl programming?18:31
tking0038mono is for .net18:32
sirriffsalotpiihb: if I'm guessing right I suppose it means you'll get to the grub selection menu when you boot by holding in shift, and then clicking "e" on the particular version you want to edit. But what guide etc are you following so we're sure?18:32
Dr_willismost people tend to run away from mono.18:32
sirriffsalotpiihb: or what syntroPi said, emphasis on the "careful" bit18:32
Dr_willisIm not sure why you really need a fancy editor for perl.18:32
Fat-Thingi see so can i get that geany on software centre Dr_willis ?18:33
dagerikWhen I add a symlink in /var/www it doesnt show up in the directory listing. It is 777.18:33

sirriffsalotpiihb: may I suggest you reboot now so you don't wake up to an unfunctional computer that ruins your breakfast?:)18:39
kyle__tking0038: I don't really think so.  A jdk is so complex, I doubt much of it's efficiencies/inefficiencies are affected by the compiler.18:39

djszapiHey! Is it possible to eliminate the top bar on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS ?18:40
tking0038kyle__: is it more of the math typed stuff18:40
fabiobikim trying to use rfidiot with my omnikey reader18:40
Dr_willisdjszapi,  not really18:40
sirriffsalotdjszapi: what top bar?18:40
Dr_willisdjszapi,  unity puts the menus in that bar. :)18:41
kyle__tking0038: Computationally complex code, mathy stuff.  Outside of that, it's probably a tossup as to which is faster.18:41
tking0038install lxde ... be done with unity18:41
sirriffsalotdjszapi: I'm with tking0038 on this one18:41
tking0038kyle__: ok ... thanks again18:41
eokkyle__: i think i figured it out: http://ffmpeg.org/libavfilter.html#movie18:41
kyle__tking0038: Don't waste to much time playing with compile flags and speed testing.  It's a black hole you'll get sucked down into.18:41
sirriffsalotdjszapi: or if you're addicted to gnome layout, at least go for gnome classic18:41
tking0038better go for the new mate thing18:41
eokkyle__: movie=/dev/video0:f=video4linux218:42
kyle__tking0038: If it's your own code, use a profiler see where it's slow.  THat will help nomatter what compiler it's compiled with.18:42
Dr_willisbut dont expect support for 'mate' in here. ;)18:42

Uncle_how do u display temperatures in gnome-panel in 12.04?18:42
tking0038t432:  you are going to have to figure out what package is causing the problem and remove it18:43
Uncle_after upgrading the applet was gone18:43
Dr_willisUncle_,  thers some indicator-applets in the repos, or differnt ppas that can add that feature18:43
Dr_willisUncle_,  the askubuntu.com site has a big list of all known indicator-applets you can add.18:43
eokkyle__: yea, can't wait to get back to work tomorrow, they can kiss the f*ing webex presentations goodbye :D18:43
Uncle_thanks, i'll check it out18:43
