alex-Can I get infected by keyloggers?00:07
stef1aBenkinooby: not sure... I think I could originally use the slider, but it wouldn't save the brightness after a reboot, so then I added the acpi_vendor and linux lines to the grub config file, and then it got as it is now00:07
ActionParsnipharris_: ok, check it supports Prcise then....00:07

jointits direction on how to manually install amd driver supplied by ubuntu... or to download them of of amd's site and compile the package00:08
nulldevless than windows but if you know the Linux system aN00:08
nulldevand what root and a user is its secure as fook00:09
jointif you remove the amd driver, depending on which one u have, you may have to replace some files... you have to read it. its a bit much at first. but you get used to it. i like to always have the latest catalyst drivers00:09
jointthe ubuntu supplied amd driver doesnt always have the latest features00:09
Benkinoobystef1a, i have to go now, but here is what i would do: try to get back to original state, install the closed source driver (keyword: jockey) in case you haven't00:09
stef1aBenkinooby: yes, sir! thank yoiu!00:10
ActionParsnipharris_: http://ppa.launchpad.net/antonio.chiurazzi/ppa/ubuntu/dists/  only goes up to Oneiric00:10
harris_ActionParsnip,  so how do i get it00:10
harris_is there a code00:10
Benkinoobystef1a, then come here again... it is easier to fix settings that are not save than settings that are not working at all00:10
jointcatalyst 12.5 will be released any day now00:10
Benkinoobystef1a, to be honest, it is very strange that the brightness changes for new chrome tabs00:10
Celso_joint : thanks alot dude! already bookmarked that link :D going to restart to see if the changes worked! thanks!00:11
jointok good luck00:11
jointyea i keep that link up in the cloud myself :)00:11
Benkinoobystef1a, also, i don't think it intended, that the brightness is saved over a reboot00:11
nulldevbrightness lvls would never be stored in a var00:12
jointi hope he can read that from another comp. he might just be booting up to a command prompt00:12
Benkinoobystef1a, but if you want that, a small bash-skript could be used for that, which saves the config at shutdown and resets the config at reboot.00:12
Benkinoobystef1a, also i am sure that there is a "default" brightness set somewhere in the system00:13

dr_willismain us servers been slow this holiday weekend?  or has it just been some isp issues ive been having?02:41
longbaohoangSorry, but I'm new here. Just wanna ask that can I install Ubuntu dual with Windows 7.02:41
bazhang!dualboot | longbaohoang02:41
dr_willislongbaohoang: yes. thats a common way to do it02:41

dr_willislongbaohoang:  hopefully your pc maker has not used 4 primary partitions on the hard drive allready02:42
ActionParsnipdr_willis: tried apt-fast ?02:43
dr_willisActionParsnip:  seen that mentioned, not tried it.02:43
dr_willisseems onb the weekends my server speeds get slow to the updates.. or it may be my isp/connection gets slow due to all the people watching netflix,  or somthing. ;)02:44
ActionParsnipdr_willis: it's apt-get + axel  downloads from 3 places, makes things faster#02:44
ActionParsnipdr_willis: might help with the slowness02:44
longbaohoangI have a ThinkPad X220t, if I try to cut my C partitions and install Ubuntu, will I lost my laptop factory reset?02:44
reisiolongbaohoang: only if something goes wrong02:45
dr_willislongbaohoang:  most pcs have a 'restore' partition you shoud always make a restore-dvd set if you want to keep windows.02:45
reisiowell, you should always make a backup of anything you want to be sure to have a copy of02:46
reisioburning to DVDs is one way to do that02:46
reisioanother is to dd to a file on another disk02:46
dr_williseven if you dont put linux on it... allways make a set or 2 of those02:46
reisiowaste of time02:46
escottlongbaohoang, i've found that those "windows recovery dvd's" never work. the only thing that seems to work is a windows backup to an external device02:46
reisioan external drive will serve you better in the long run, cost less in the long run, and be simpler to use immediately02:46
ActionParsnipreisio: PITA more like02:46
dr_willisi tend to just buy a new hard drive for my laptops ;) keep the original somewhere safe. and replace it with one that always seems to be 2x tghe size for just a few $02:47
reisioActionParsnip: yeah02:47
reisioI... don't backup Windows anymore02:47
longbaohoangBut my laptop have no DVD driver. It's a X series, you know.02:47
reisioafter deleting so many 50GB backups, you learn to not waste your time doing it any longer02:47
reisioI might backup a reinstall partition, as those are usually no more than 10GB02:47
dr_willislongbaohoang:  external usb optical drives are cheap02:47
reisiobut only for other people not myself :p02:48
lixlongbaohoang: us a memorystick instead02:48
cryptotheslylongbaohoang, use the Windows utilities to resize a Windows partition. Anything after XP tends to get all twisted if you use something like gParted to manipulate them.02:48
reisionah gparted will work02:48
reisiobut there's no 100% guarantee it will02:48
dr_willisi tend to keep a laptop for like 2 years then pass it on to my brother or other faimly. so its easier for me to pop back in that old laptops original hd. and they got a new system ;)02:48
reisioit's more like 98%02:48
escottcryptothesly, i've never had a problem02:48
cryptotheslyescott, lucky you02:48
reisiocould be luck :p02:49
reisiocould be something else :D02:49
escottcryptothesly, im just wondering if there is something unusual about your windows systems. but i've moved NTFS partitions all around the disk and its always booted just fine02:50
reisioit's definitely a good idea to defrag first02:51
dr_willisdefragging... how quaint.. ;P02:52
reisioindeed :p02:52
dr_willisalways amuseing to  see the look on a windows users face when you tell them that youve never needed to  defrag  your linux box...,02:53
lixdefrag is ot, guys!02:53
ActionParsnipyeah dr_willis  you install to ext2...right :)02:53
dr_willisBEosFs! ;)02:53
reisiodr_willis: and other things02:54
dr_willisHavent heard much news on the 'new filesystems' front lately either.02:54
ActionParsnipkeep user docs, swap space, temp  and system on different partitions in windows and you wont have to defrag windows nearly as much02:54
dr_willisive had newly formated hard drives.. i copy a few files to.. then windows tools say its fragmenetd..  at less then 1% iin use... go  figure.02:55
cryptotheslyescott, nothing unusual - factory restore partition, followed by a Win7 partition. Resizing the Win7 partition using gParted has caused it to go dirty twice. Not had that problem using disk utils in Win7. Hardly empirical science I know :)02:55
dr_willisWhat is the name of the next generation Filesystem that was all the rage a few months back? Btrfs? i havent seen it mentioned on blog sites lately02:56
cryptotheslyIs that B-tree based?02:56
ActionParsnipdr_willis: i tried it on my lappy, seemed to run slower02:57
cryptotheslySeem to remember B-tree being the next big thing 5 years ago...  think that was in relation to databases though.02:57

KRomoanyone running google chrome on ubuntu?02:59
cryptotheslyAVP, tar.gz are compressed archives. Whether you can run what is contained in them depends on what it is really.03:00
ActionParsnipKRomo: i do03:00
KRomoi need help with it03:01

tr3ntonI find some of the about://flags in chrome(ium) cause that profile error for me, occasionally03:05
KRomoevery time i opened chrom,e it said myt profile couldnt be read and then my history was empty03:05
ActionParsnipspeeddial2 in chrome is awesome03:05
ActionParsnipKRomo: is it ok now though?03:06
KRomoit seems so :)03:06
KRomoi didnt do anything tho03:06
dr_willisKRomo:  wonder if you ever accidently ran the browser as root.  that can goof up permissions on some files03:06
cryptotheslyAVP, it's not a no no for sure. tar.gz can quite happily be extracted on Ubuntu. Whether what is contained will run on Ubuntu will depend on whether it is already compiled and what it was compiled for. If it's not compiled then it ~should~ be possible to compile and run it. If you can be more specific about what tar.gz you have it might be helpful.03:06
tr3ntonthere's some new extension for remote access: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gbchcmhmhahfdphkhkmpfmihenigjmpp , could be cool :D03:06

ActionParsnipdlum: oh jeez, thats a whole LOT of headaches. Expect issues03:24
reisionydel: obviously not the ideal way, but you could use wmctrl to fix such things for one-offs03:24

dlumescott: the grub line to boot the kernel is only-ubiquity quite splash03:26
dlumescott: it goes black after it tries to switch to X03:26
dr3mroreisio, I know about that but wouldn't it be gr8 if a script can do it automatically and restores it if needed!!03:26
cryptotheslydr3mro, DejaDup does a good job03:27

ms-daisythanks nydel.  That still didn't work.  Problem is I've never tried to save a conf file on a server.  Can anyone point me to a tutorial, documentation, something that will walk a total noob through it?  Google is landing me on helpful stuff like "save the conf file before you edit it."03:49
nydelms-daisy: same error?03:50
nydelms-daisy: try this: cp /etc/apt/apt.conf ~/apt.conf.original03:51
nydelms-daisy: that should put a copy of the original in your home directory03:51
ms-daisyo god I'm an idiot. It's /etc/apt/apt.conf.d03:51
KRomohows is Fedora?03:51
nydelms-daisy: that's why we love computers -- when they mess up, it's our fault :)03:51
KRomoi see people making a big deal about ver 1703:52
reisioKRomo: it's probably the best distro for being an unpaid RHEL beta tester there is03:53
ms-daisyNop, I still don't have it.  Seriously.  Can anyone point me to a detailed document on saving .conf files?03:53
reisioms-daisy: saving them?03:53
ms-daisycopying them sorry03:54
U5Z3Whats with the FloodBot1,2, and 3's?03:54
reisioms-daisy: from where to where? Why?03:54
nydelms-daisy: there's no real topic on saving conf files -- you need to know about "linux file permissions" & the "cp" command.03:54
reisioU5Z3: 3 comes after 2 comes after 103:54
nydelms-daisy: 9 times of 10, a .conf is textual03:54
ms-daisyreiso I'm going to screw with a .conf file. I want to save the original before that.03:54
zombifieror cp -r if you want to copy directories03:55
reisioms-daisy: ah03:55
lixms-daisy: "cp foo bar" or "cat foo > bar"03:55
paulus68_xan_: thx03:55
reisioms-daisy: cp /path/to/conf /home/youruser/conf.backupFOO#03:55
KRomowhat app can i use to use my scanner?03:55
nydelzombifier: is that right, does cp take -r? i know rm does but i didn't think cp did.03:55
zombifierI believe vim has an option of saving the original when editing03:55
reisioKRomo: what make?03:55
lixKRomo: gimp!03:55
KRomohp officejet 6500a03:55
zombifiernydel: Yes, cp takes the --recursive option03:55
Blue1zombifier: indeed03:55
reisioKRomo: hplip/hplip-gui03:55
nydelzombifier: good to know thx03:55
ms-daisyzombifier vim FTW!03:56
bazhangKRomo, simplescan03:56
KRomoi installed hplip but i didnt see a scan option03:56
reisioKRomo: you probably want hplip-gui03:56
reisioKRomo: otherwise it's commands only, like 'hp-scan'03:56
reisio(which I actually prefer)03:56
ActionParsnipKRomo: xsane03:56
reisioKRomo: the buttons on the scanner may also work, but not necessarily03:56
KRomoits connected over network03:56
KRomois that ok?03:56

KRomooh wow xsane works flawless03:58
U5Z3whats xsane?03:58
KRomothanks action!03:58
nydelms-daisy: do this: "sudo vi /etc/apt/apt.conf.d" then type ":w /etc/apt/apt.conf.d" then type ":q"03:58
ActionParsnip!info xsane03:58
meisth0thbazhang, i know about packaging, but it would be a lot easier for me if there is already one experienced user that wants to help me03:58
ubottuxsane (source: xsane): featureful graphical frontend for SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy). In component universe, is optional. Version 0.998-3ubuntu2 (precise), package size 264 kB, installed size 812 kB03:58
nydelms-daisy: do this: "sudo vi /etc/apt/apt.conf.d" then type ":w /etc/apt/apt.conf.d.original" then type ":q"03:58
zykotick9nydel: apt.conf.d is a directory usually03:59
bazhangmeisth0th, better to learn it, asking here for someone to compile your app for a ppa is not the way to go03:59
zombifiernano has the -b option. Dunno if vim has it03:59
nydelzykotick9: i asked that, i thought it wasn't this time03:59
ms-daisyThanks nydel.  I'm still disappointed that I can't copy a simple file :S03:59
nydelms-daisy: it might not be a file03:59
zombifiercp -r is needed in order to copy a folder04:00
tr3ntoni have pinned an application to the unity launcher (text editor). But if I right click some text files, Open With Scite; it creates a new icon in the launcher (same icon, so it appears there twice).04:00
nydelms-daisy: try "sudo cp -r /etc/apt/apt.d.conf /etc/apt/apt.d.conf.original04:00
tr3ntonIs that expected behavior04:00
KRomohow do i minimize all windows? like in windows windoskey+d?04:00
reisiodunno if recommending vi is a good idea for someone who didn't know how to cp a few seconds ago04:00
reisioKRomo: try CTRL+ALT+d04:00
_xan_apt.conf.d is a directory04:00
nydelms-daisy: the "-r" means recursive, you need this to copy a directory.04:00
ms-daisyreisio: good point.  This server is for breaking.04:00
reisioeverything is, in the end :p04:00
KRomoctrl+alt+d does nothing04:00
reisiobut you might find nano or gedit a better editor04:00
reisioKRomo: which version of Ubuntu?04:01
paulus68is there a utility under ubuntu simular like norton disk doktor?04:01
U5Z3ya i like gedit04:01
ms-daisygedit on a server with no gui reisio ?04:01
nydeli would recommend nano for command line04:01
KRomoi learned ctrl+alt+t is terminal today, i love that04:01
nydelwhat ms-daisy said04:01
rcrnstnHi guys, Im having problems with C++ "mem_fun" and "bind1st", can you help? http://codepad.org/g3AvnAlL (19 lines)04:01
reisioKRomo: should be Meta+D, just like Windows04:01
U5Z3Oops right04:01
ActionParsnipKRomo: you can also install guake and use F12 (by default) to show and hide the terminal :)04:02
zombifierYup, nano -B shoud save the original file as a backup04:02
_xan_KRomo: You will love guake even more then04:02
robotdevilcan I use windows pen drive creator if my ubuntu disc creator is broken04:02
reisiocan customize all the shortcuts :p04:02
robotdevilin wine04:02
lixpaulus86: what exactly would you like to do?04:02
KRomowindows+d does nothing04:02
ActionParsnipreisio: meta+D will run the app in Unity assigned to the letter D in the launcher :)04:02
zombifierrobotdevil: I see no difference04:02
zombifierIn 12.04 it's Ctrl + Super + D now04:02
robotdevilzombifier: I meant in wine04:02
reisioActionParsnip: not what what I'm reading says04:02
reisioActionParsnip: what's desktop toggle, then?04:03
KRomoOH WOW04:03
KRomoctrl super d works04:03
zombifierI have no idea why you should run system tools in wine. Try unetbootin04:03
reisiowhat an awful shortcut04:03
dwarderi'm on Ubuntu 11.04, how do i enable tun if, /sbin/modprobe tun gives WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/.04:03

lm_wow guy you are very serviceable :) i'm male04:03
nydelKRomo: global hotkey list is found in system-settings -> keyboard -> shortcuts04:03
nydelKRomo: you might like a lot of them04:03
paulus68lix: I have a harddrive that has some bad sectors on them which makes it still possible to read and format however impossible to reinstall ubuntu on this drive it keeps hanging therefore I want to see if it's possible to "replace" the bad sectors and try to use the hd again04:04
zombifierTry holding the Super key04:04
reisiolm_: I'm male, too, small world04:04
ActionParsnipKRomo: hold down windows key for a long time and you'll see all the asigned shortcuts04:04
KRomoright now i am running ubuntu 12.04 on a small 90gb sata3 6gbps ssd. i have a sata3 2tb drive i want to install as a storage drive. should i format it ntfs or ext4 like trhe ssd?04:04
KRomooh wow lol04:04
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot04:04
lm_reisio, i know04:04
lixpaulus86: !info fsck04:04
reisiodoes Ubuntu's 'shutdown' not have -F ?04:05
_xan_!fsck paulus8604:05
robotdevilzombifier: didnt know about it thanks04:05
ms-daisynydel: Okie dokie. I was trying to copy a directory. Epic fail. But now I've got the CORRECT conf files copied.  Thanks to all!04:05
KRomoreisio: what distro you on?04:05
nydelms-daisy: very welcome04:05
reisioKRomo: one whose shutdown has -F :D04:05
ActionParsnipreisio: windows shutdown has -f ;)04:06
zombifierYeah its kinda weird that mv does not have -r, while cp and rm has04:06
reisioActionParsnip: what about Mac OS? :p04:06
zombifiersudo shutdown now04:06
ActionParsnipreisio: ubuntu has -r -s -H -P -c and -k04:06
zombifierin Ubuntu04:06
paulus68_xan_: but will it also repair the filesystem if needed?04:06
ActionParsnipreisio: no idea, not used mac too extensively04:06
* lix wonders if option "-f" stands for "forever"04:06
reisioActionParsnip: so at all :D heh04:07
zombifierjust read shutdown's man page04:07
_xan_paulus68: yes04:07
ActionParsnipreisio: a little, to play music at a party04:07
_xan_paulus68: man fsck04:07

lixpaulus86 http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/hardy/man8/fsck.8.html04:08
nydela lot of new ubuntu users seem not to know basic li/unix commands -- i think we should alias rm='rm -i' in the next release04:08

bazhangIeatpienstuff, you never asked a real question04:11
ActionParsnipIeatpienstuff: wassup?04:11
reisioActionParsnip: it's important for some people to get rid of their money :p04:11
dr_willisit helps to state the problem.04:11
Ieatpienstuffhow can I use JoinMe on linux?04:11
lixIeatpienstuff: try http://teamviewer.com04:11
reisioIeatpienstuff: what is it?04:11
Ieatpienstuffno no teamviewer04:11
dr_willisI dont think anyone in here has ever heard of JoinMe04:11
IeatpienstuffI just want to share how i draw by using it04:11
lixIeatpienstuff: what is "JoinMe" anyways?04:11
reisio^ :p04:11
Ieatpienstuffto share your screen with people04:12
dr_willisand the JoinMe web site mentions a Linux client?04:12

_xan_dr_willis: could run the development environment... not sure what the performance would be like04:20

dr_willisi figure eventually it will happen.  Be sort of a neat 'feature' for ubuntu to have an easy way to do it,.04:22
EtgarDizzhi all!04:22
CoJaBohi some!04:22
EtgarDizzI'd like to consult: I have ubuntu 11.04 installed, with some applications/modifications. from your experience, how much incompatibility should I expect if I try to upgrade to 12.04? meaning - should I even do it?04:22
=== tibbers_ is now known as kylemcgill
reisioEtgarDizz: you probably won't have any with apps not to do with the GUI/Unity/GNOME04:23
zykotick9EtgarDizz: you can't skip releases so you'd have to upgrade twice 11.04 -> 11.10 then 11.10 -> 12.0404:24
ramsmithEtgarDizz: i tend to create two / partitions one that is active and one that i use for the next release. I have a home partitions that i recycle04:24
reisiozykotick9: not even LTS?04:24
dr_willisif you don't  want or need the new features. stay with what ya have. ;)04:24
zykotick9reisio: LTS is an exception (that proves the rule ;)04:25
CoJaBoThis machine's still on Jaunty :/04:25
reisioramsmith: and you find that's necessary?04:25
reisiozykotick9: right04:25
ramsmithreisio: it has proven to be the best way for me.04:25
EtgarDizzzykotick9, that's what I meant... upgrading twice. reisio, good point. I don't think I have any mods to the gui, I do however have modified the x11 config file, and have added some libs to support java 32-bit for eg. does that sound like something that could break? meaning, the libs I installed are probably release-specific?04:26
ramsmithreisio: not necessary but i have done it that way at least 4 times after having nigling issues between upgrades04:26
_xan_dr_willis: have you tried to run bluestacks in wine just for kicks?04:26
ccooffeeI'm planning on installing Ubuntu. Please name a few things I should start with to make the computer more secure.04:26
zykotick9EtgarDizz: personally (and it's only a personal OPINION), i think upgrade are a bad idea YMMV04:26
reisioramsmith: issues like?04:27
EtgarDizzzykotick9, YMMV?...04:27
reisioEtgarDizz: can't speak to your mysterious Java™ configs, but the rest should be fine04:27
verwilstyour mileage may vary04:27
zykotick9EtgarDizz: sorry, Your Milage May Vary (meaning you might have a different experinece)04:27
reisioEtgarDizz: and even if it isn't, it shouldn't take you more than a few hours here to sort any issues out04:27
_xan_ccooffee: laptop lock, security cam connected to cctv, 300lbs security guard?04:27
dr_willis_xan_:  thats almost twisted. ;)04:28
reisiono offense, but if you can't upgrade it, you need to find another distro04:28
ramsmithreiso: just funny little stuff. its been over two years since i've done it differently.04:28
reisioramsmith: mmm04:28
ccooffee_xan_: Almost funny... :/04:28
ramsmithreisio: from memory it was mostly gnome related.04:28
EtgarDizzzykotick9, reisio, that's good advice. can you recommend a back-up application, to create an image of what I have now, in case I don't like the new release and want to revert?04:29
reisio_xan_: yeah, if you'd not used avoirdupois it'd have been funny04:29
zykotick9EtgarDizz: clonezilla livecd, or dd for image backups are two options04:29
reisioEtgarDizz: rsync from a livecd is pretty simple04:29
_xan_reisio: haha04:30
reisiorsync -av /where/root/is/mounted/ /some/other/place/04:30
reisio_xan_: :D04:30
reisiodm, that would've made it funny04:30

LilCan anyone show me how to connect wvdial using usb modem without modprobing first, please.. :)04:32
_xan_ccooffee: what are you trying to achieve from a security standpoint?  encryption? anonymity? firewalled environment?04:33
dr_williswhy not just make the module autoload?04:33
ccooffee_xan_: Basic security stuff. :>04:33
dr_willisactually the plugging in of the device should load the module04:33
reisioccooffee: should be pretty secure by default04:34

Cerrdorhow do I fix that?04:34
_xan_ccooffee: exactly what reisio said04:34
ccooffeereisio: SHOULD be? Oh oh!04:34
reisioccooffee: heh04:34
dr_willislil cant do what....04:34
reisioccooffee: for example an ssh server probably isn't even installed04:34
reisioccooffee: so people can't even try to brute force or guess your pass and break in remotely04:34
ccooffee_xan_: reisio: I read the firewall isn't turned on by default? :/04:35
dr_willisa normal desktop ubuntu install has no default services listening . i belive04:35
reisioccooffee: if you want some "security" (peace of mind), look into something like AIDE or tripwire, so you know if and when your system has been compromised, and exactly how to undo it04:35
dr_willisccooffee:  its on. but theres no default rules blocking anything.04:35
Lildr_willis how to loading..04:35
_xan_ccooffee: do you have a laptop that you are moving around? or just a desktop?04:35
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 blacklist04:35
CerrdorI chmod my script 777 over and over and I still get permission denied, why is it not sticking lol04:36
dr_willisCerrdor:  check output of ls -l, what fs is the file on?04:36
zykotick9Cerrdor: is the script on a FAT/NTFS partition by chance?04:36
ccooffee_xan_: It's a laptop used as a desktop. :p04:36
ccooffeereisio: That sounds complicated.04:37
reisioccooffee: it isn't _really_04:37
reisioccooffee: but you have plenty of time to figure out how to use it, because it's pretty unlikely you'll need it at all :p04:37
ccooffeedr_willis: Would it be easy to block all incoming connections?04:37
_xan_ccooffee: if you have a router by default you don't need to worry about a firewall... I would really only be concerned about a firewall if you are accessing public wifi or something similar.04:37
ForSparePartsHey guys? I had an upgrade fail and I'm running dpkg --configure -a from chroot -- it's dying on me, says "too many errors." Is there anything I can do about that?04:37
Lilthanks... :D04:38

EtgarDizzwhy would it work, when I try to go back from /some/other/place into /there/root/is? the new release would be more recent and nothing would happen, no?04:38

ccooffeereisio: Just yesterday I used the Installation DVD that came with my laptop to be SURE nothing was tampered with. Guess what? utorrent came preinstalled on the fucking DVD(?!) and once I installed VLC the icon was upside down... :/04:39
reisioEtgarDizz: from a live OS, if you have your root (/) mounted to say /mnt/oldubuntu, and a drive with sufficient space mounted to /mnt/oldbackup, you'd run: rsync -av /mnt/oldubuntu/ /mnt/oldbackup/04:39
ForSparePartsIt seems like the errors are all "dependency problems - leaving unconfigured"04:39
reisioEtgarDizz: hrmm?04:40
reisioccooffee: talking about an Ubuntu DVD?04:40
ccooffeereisio: No, Mac OS X.04:40
reisioMac OS isn't much for security04:41
reisiothere's a massive dormant botnet involving Apple computers ATM04:41

reisioccooffee: installing what, Mac OS?04:41
ccooffeereisio: Yes.04:42
reisioccooffee: mmm, that's a different OS though :p04:42
ccooffeereisio: And why the **** was utorrent already on the DVD?04:42
bazhangccooffee, thats offtopic here. try a mac channel04:42
_xan_ccooffee: http://www.puschitz.com/SecuringLinux.shtml04:42
ccooffeebazhang: Why? I'm not trying to get any help for OS X. We're just talking about it.04:42
bazhangccooffee, and no cursing here04:43
bazhangccooffee, it's NOT the chat channel04:43
EtgarDizzreisio, I thought you meant I can do this from my normal OS and not only from a live CD. also, how would I replace the new relase with the backup if needed? what command in rsync?04:43
ccooffeebazhang: Wow. Calm down?04:43
reisioccooffee: I'd imagine because it wasn't an official DVD image, or alternatively because they have some commercial partnership with them04:43
reisioEtgarDizz: you can, but it's more complicated as there are parts of the OS you wouldn't want to attempt to copy04:43
reisioEtgarDizz: like /proc/04:43
reisioEtgarDizz: you can just rm the new files and rsync -av back the old ones04:44
EtgarDizzreisio, what's the diff? if / is mounted to somewhere, wouldn't /proc/ be there with it (eg /mnt/old/proc/)?04:44
reisioEtgarDizz: proc itself would be, but not the dynamic files inside it04:44
reisioit'd just be an empty dir waiting to be filled by a running system04:45
CoJaBoIn general, you don't want to try to back up a running system's root lol..04:45
crazyharryhow can I download entire directory (all subfolder and files within it )using wget command ?04:45
EtgarDizzreisio, I think I need to try this for myself to get a better undestanding... one problem: the live CD option isn't available cos I'm planning on an upgrade not a fresh install04:45
=== lance is now known as Guest74164
reisiocrazyharry: ask #linux04:46
reisioEtgarDizz: it's only not an option if you don't have a live OS image and/or don't have a CD/DVD/USB stick04:46
zykotick9crazyharry: -r for recursive04:47
reisioyou don't need it for the upgrade, it's just convenient for backing up a system (because the system won't be _running_)04:47
crazyharryzykotick9, I did -r , only copies index.html file04:47
EtgarDizzreision, I guess I'm missing something. can you explain the steps you'd take in this method?04:47
zykotick9crazyharry: perhaps it's a dynamic site?04:48
EtgarDizzreisio, also the steps needed to restore the backup04:48
crazyharryzykotick9, I used  wget -r -nH --cut-dirs=2 --no-parent --reject="index.html*" --user=xxx --password='yyy'  https://valicertext.roche.com/OID_XXYYX/*04:48
reisioEtgarDizz: obtain live OS image and burn/image to CD or DVD or USB stick, reboot system to this live OS, mount the local root filesystem as well as someplace to put a copy of it (you can copy it to /home/foo/ if you want, but exclusions would come into play), rsync -av /path/to/original/ /path/to/newcopy/04:49
=== 18WAA3I0Z is now known as mangdood

wifioregonHi, I've been introducing a lot of people in my chat to Ubuntu, but they complain that they want to be able to play good games.  I remember someone a while back talking about some new engine thats going to be way cool. Are there any good commercial games for ubuntu?04:58

lilihi. i have som txt file in /var/log/ and some .gz file in it. i want to remve all files in /var/log/ Except .gz files?04:59
reisioplayonlinux can help with that, I s'pose04:59
reflexrgwifioregon there is a lot of free software/open source games cross platform games04:59
wifioregonreisio, but all the games I've tried so far are buggy and slow with wine...and I've tried a lot04:59
reflexrgalso there is emulators to play games too04:59
wifioregonthanks, but what about modern games with killer graphics?05:00
reflexrgI think dosbox is cross platform05:00
reflexrgthere is modern games wifioregon05:00
wifioregonI've already been installing all the main free and open source games05:00
wifioregonrelexrg, could you recommend a couple?05:00

xclusive585wifioregon: yeasterday someone mentioned "nethack" for playing windows games on Linux? never heard of it but maybe it's worth a google?05:01

reisionethack is a game05:01
wifioregonbut no commercial games?05:01
reisiowifioregon: I already said there were05:01
zombifierIt depends05:01
reflexrgjust because it isn't commercial doesn't mean the game sucks05:02
wifioregonreisio:  sorry, just having trouble finding anything good with google05:02
lilireisio: no i want all files excepts gz05:02
reisiothere are also whole sites dedicated to gaming on Linux05:02
reisioall the games from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humble_Indie_Bundle IIRC are cross platform05:02
reflexrgthere is other ways to make money with a product than selling to end users05:03
reisiolili: that's what the command I gave you finds05:03
xclusive585ok, need a good "hello world" program that is a) available as source, b) has enough options where I can really learn about flags and different "ways" to compile. I'm a noob to compiling and plan on really learning, I've got a virtual machine all ready to go so I can make a mess and not worry about it :-). Input?05:03
reisiolili: might want to add -type f if you don't want empty dirs, too05:03
reisioxclusive585: I'm not aware of any such source, get yourself an intro book05:03

MrKeunerhello, which media pc is good with ubuntu? Any personal suggestions are welcome.05:05
wifioregonMrKeuner:  pretty much all modern PC's run great with ubuntu05:05
wifioregonMrKeuner:  I've had really good experiences with Lenovo and linux05:05

xclusive585LOL, yea package manager won't give me experience compiling, anys I'll try that programming room05:05
reisioMrKeuner: talking about hardware or software?05:06
MrKeunerreisio, hardware05:06
reisioMrKeuner: what wifioregon said05:06
reisioreflexrg: 'mount' might make it obvious (or might not)05:06
MrKeunerwifioregon, I have a lenovo laptop x200 which has a fingerprint reader that is not supported by Linux05:07
reflexrgMrKeuner just get a pc that has open source friendly hardware ATI graphics are open source friendly05:07
lilireisio: ok. thank you05:07
reisioMrKeuner: just as well, they aren't useful05:07
reisioalthough more than likely it is supported :p05:07
wifioregonMrKeuner:  well yea things like that are probably using proprietory software..05:07
wifioregonIts so easy to get past finger print readers anyways05:08
wifioregonha with ubuntu05:08
wifioregonlive disk05:08
reflexrgMrKeuner http://www.h-node.org/05:09
MrKeunermy point is not the fingerprint reader. I was assuming there may be parts of lenovo that won't work with my operating system05:09
reisioif someone has physical access to your computer, you're going to have to do a lot better than a finger print reader05:09
reisioMrKeuner: Lenovo in particular is pretty good about it05:09
reisiothey also prefer Intel hardware, which is also particularly good about it05:09
MrKeunerreflexrg, that sounds good, I'll check it05:09
lixMrKreuner: check here http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/05:09
reisioand again, I bet your fingerprint reader actually _is_ supported05:10
MrKeunerlix, that website is far from complete and lacks recent models05:10
MrKeunerreisio, I am pretty sure it is not05:10
reisioMrKeuner: you could try http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/ or http://linux-laptop.net/ (in the case of laptops)05:10
reflexrgMrKeuner https://www.gnu.org/links/companies.html05:10
reisioMrKeuner: but it's pretty simple to get a hardware list from a site/retailer and just check compatibility on individual bits05:11
MrKeunerreisio, Bus 004 Device 002: ID 08ff:2810 AuthenTec, Inc. AES281005:11
reisiothe most important bits being network and graphics devices05:11
wifioregonMrKeuner:  I'm looking for a good link that was really helpful for me. One sec05:11
MrKeunerreisio, network as in wired as well?05:11
reisioMrKeuner: yes, but wireless is more likely to be problematic05:12
reflexrgMrKeuner just buy a pc from sites that sell computers preinstalled with linux and if you have specific needs ask them what computers they sell that offer the best 3d acceleration and also ask if it requires non free firmware05:12
reisioMrKeuner: the internet tells me that device _is_ supported05:12
reisiolaunchpad.net, even05:12
reisioor: buy from sites with a good return policy05:13
wifioregonMrKeuner:  Ugh nevermind cant find it. Anyone know of a good site that reviews all the different PC's on how well they perform with linux?05:13
reisiowifioregon: nope, sounds like a waste of time05:13
wifioregonThere was an excellent one i saw a few months gack05:13
reisiono OS supports more hardware than Linux05:13
ForSparePartsHey, does anyone know how to fix the dpkg "dependency problem -- leaving unconfigured" error?05:13
wifioregonreisio:  I agree, but its a commond question people ask, and they really like to see what others have to say about the model they plan on purchasing05:14
reisioyeah but people also frequently ask why don't you vote republican :p05:14
SnowieHi all. must be missing something here. read the man, cant find any way to use ffmpeg to pull the metadata from a video file. and i see now that it is now replaced by avconv, but still no option. any suggestions05:15
amh345apache -v05:15
amh345is there a way to upgrade apache 2.2 to 2.4 using apt-get?05:15
ForSparePartsAlternately, is there any way to do a reinstall and keep my data intact without copying it all to another drive?05:15
MrKeunerreisio, your point is never mind if linux supports a new pc you intend to buy, because chances are very high that Linux supports your new prospective hardware?05:16
reflexrgcheck this site out to find webcams and other external devices that work well with linux http://www.h-node.org/  and buy from these providers for computers that work well with linux and just ask them what pc works best if you have specific needs such as 3d acceleration...etc... https://www.gnu.org/links/companies.html wifioregon05:16
reisioSnowie: any particular part of the metadata?05:16
xclusive585##programming was as helpful as here :-P. I'm just going to pick at random.05:17
reisioMrKeuner: no, although that wouldn't be a terrible point, my point was that a site such as the one referred to would not be particularly useful05:17
Snowieall of it really. i have a sh@#$ load of video that needs sorting. just want to see what info might be there. i know it's likely to be scarce. more need title and ep info.05:17
Snowiereisio, probably not gunna happen i know05:18
reflexrgalso the most popular hardware that is a few years old tends to be the most well supported hardware MrKeuner05:18
reflexrgI think dell sells pcs with ubuntu on them05:18
reflexrgor did they stop doing that?05:18
shawncm217Ubuntu 12.04 has stopped printing on me. I've deleted and re-added the printer. Deleted all jobs from queue. Reviewed logs. Checked for updates. No success. Need suggestions.05:18

reisioSnowie: don't mention that you're using libav if you are :p05:19
Zackingtoni would love to know if the made ubuntu based pcs05:19
reisioZackington: they sell them, yes05:19
Snowiereisio, lol, bad blood hey. thanks mate05:20
reisiowell it's not really your fault your distro has chosen to switch to some grumpy kid's fork05:20
reflexrgMrKeuner the only thing that I have found that linux sometimes has problems with is graphics card ports s-video...etc. webcams, 3d acceleration05:20
SnowieHere you go. Buy one of these if you want, well, 90% garauntee of good performance and no issues https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecommendedHardware05:20
reflexrgnot sure about internal webcams05:21
SnowieZackington, there are alot of companies out there that build them05:21
reisioreflexrg: Windows has the same problems, it's just usually preinstalled by a professional05:21
reflexrgwhat problems reisio05:21
SnowieZackington, giyf http://linuxpreloaded.com/05:21
reisioapparently you can still get Ubuntu preinstalled on Dell computers if you call them and ask05:21
reisioreflexrg: those you just mentioned Linux sometimes has05:22
=== Eszett is now known as Guest49936
Snowiereisio, i would say, someone ruined windows to make sure there webcam worked, but yes, i agree.05:23
reisioSnowie: right, and doing the same thing with Linux accomplishes the same thing: the webcam works05:24
Snowiereisio, ;)05:24
reisiothat is to say: comparing Windows preinstalled by a professional with Linux installed by an amateur is not particularly useful05:24
reisioit's not Linux's fault if you don't know how to install drivers :D05:24
Snowiereisio, i know ill probably get flames, but win7 is pretty polished OEM, but manufacturers always seem to munt it somehow05:25
reisioalthough most linux distros go to great lengths to make it automated for you, very much unlike Windows05:25

paulus68is there a way to get the taskbar in 12.04 transparent so that it blends into your current wallpaper?05:26
dr_willisbut are they included by default.05:26
reisiopaulus68: undoubtedly05:26
reisiodr_willis: that's a distro issue05:26
reisioUbuntu inherits some of Debian's DFSG05:26
Snowiepaulus68, that's an interesting one. Used to be part of compiz i believe. hmmm05:27
reisiowhich are good for Linux in general, just potentially problematic for end users05:27
dr_willispaulus68:  you mean the left side panel?05:27
paulus68dr_willis: yes05:27
dr_willisit is semi-transparent now i thought05:27
dr_willisor at least the color changes. :)05:27
Snowiepaulus68, not really supported here, but try this http://www.addictivetips.com/ubuntu-linux-tips/myunity-comprehensive-unity-tweak-for-ubuntu-11-04-and-11-10/05:28
dr_willisi think i saw some transparancy settings in myunity or theunity plugin in ccsm05:28
paulus68dr_willis: I know there is a way to create transparent panel like in the old days however I didn't find a way to achieve this in 120405:28
dr_willisMyUnity is in the 12.04 repos.05:28
dr_willisi always found the transparancy to make things less readable05:29
undecimpaulus68: Pretty sure both Ubuntu tweak and CCSM let you set the transparency of the panel05:30
dr_willisthe top panel transparency can cause issues with seeing the menu items,.05:30
xclusive585I'll rephrase this question. What's a good source package to learn about GCC compiler with?05:30
undecimdr_willis: As long as you have a dark bg, it should be fine, right?05:31
=== ray1claw_afk is now known as ray1claw
dr_willisundecim:  actually it showed two layers of text - the gnome desktop menu and  the app menu text.. so i think a dark bgmay not help withj that05:31
dr_willisundecim:  i recall  seeing the issue with some themes. gnome-shjell does it differntly  so the transoarency dosent look as bad there05:32
Snowiewhat i love in unity in 12.04 is hitting alt to see EVERY menu item in a search box. skip to next track in spotify with a couple of keystrokes without touching the mouse or toggling windows. HELLZ YEAH05:32
dr_willisthe 'HUD" is handy05:32
undecimdr_willis: That doesn't happen to me05:33
undecimdr_willis: In fact... this transparency looks pretty nice.05:33
dr_willisbut its like unity is going 2 routes.. one way is 'focusing on keyboard ussage'  but then they say its going to be for tablets and phones.. with no keyboard05:33
dr_willisundecim:  i had totally unreadable text over text in the top panel with some themes  as i said.05:33
dr_willisnot all themse have the transparent top panel  i belive05:34
undecimdr_willis: I think it's perfectly possible and reasonable to have both keyboard and tablet oriented usage05:34
dr_willisor you can disable the desktop feature of nautlius as a extra work around05:34
wilee-nileeyou can make the top panel clear as well05:34
* dr_willis wonders how to use the hud on a tablet. ;)05:34

ramy_danyone here noticing that cups is not starting with ubuntu 11.10 and 12.04 ?05:35
dr_williswilee-nilee:  and that can look nasty with some themes05:35
Snowiedr_willis, yes. but i have to say, it's the same route that all distros are going. merging the desktop and the tablet/touch interface. i prefer ubuntu's take. Ever tried to easily switch to next track on an android phone. out of app, open music app, click next etc etc. why not big fat button that lets you type a few letters and see options for all your open apps05:36
wilee-nileedr_willis, I suppose so, it is just an option.05:36
wilee-nileetransparent is what I mean.05:36
randiokay, I fully give up! I have spent hours trying to fix my wifi! :/05:36

dr_willisundecim:  not on a ppc at the moment. but i saw them in MyUnity, or in  Ubuntu-tweak and i havent been using U-T much lately.05:39
dr_willisi recall turning off the trask with some slider button in a tweak tool last week05:40
randiAetheros  5800 built in05:40

randiworked fine until i upgraded to 12.04.05:41

Snowieif you open a terminal and run ifconfig do you see wlan0 there?05:41
randinot  anymore05:42
Snowiedr_willis, known issue?05:42
dr_willisSnowie:  with the 12.04 release the kernel and stuff has changed. so theres been a lot of very deep changes - hard to tell if  the upgrade messed up. or ifits a 12.04 issue05:42

Snowiesomeone here might point me in the right direction. I work in support for an isp, and our modems by default are configured to have gateway, everything below is the gateway is DHCP, and everything above is free to assign static. We dont support static, so theres nothing official in our docs. Is this a TCP/IP standard of some sort??? if so. where are the docs?05:51
Snowie*below OF the gateway address05:52
sbatteyAre there any immediate security concerns for a ubuntu server running snedmail to send mail through php?05:52
Blue1Snowie: afaik it's arbitary05:53
dr_willisSnowie:  so the lan is limited to 137 differnt ip addresses dynamicaly you are saying?05:53
SnowieBlue1, yep. i know that everyone in the know knows, but how does my poor end user know if there is no docs, and it's not even in the manual????? just weird05:54
Blue1Snowie: write the manual.05:54
dr_willisi do my home lan the opposite way. anything below 100 i reserve for my staticc servers and devices, the router hands out  dynamic to anything  starting at 101+05:54
Snowiedr_willis, yeah. but this if for home. generally wifi, so that's plenty05:54
dr_willisyour isp is decidening on it.. so they should mention it?05:55
Blue1Snowie: i think the big consideration is whatever you decide - be consistant05:55
Snowiedr_willis, yeah, but our company supplied modems are fairly locked. The big driver is playstation and xbox (and other port forwarding) at least home users with some knowledge should have a document somewhere05:56
=== ray1claw is now known as ray1claw_afk
dr_willisif the device is for a home lan user.. i dont see how the  static not supported applies.. the ip range you gave is whatggs given out to devices on thelan.. thats not the same as the isp giving the user a static ip05:57

reisioalthough nobody serious uses them06:33
zombifieramanthakur: Use Qt06:34
blackcatnekonegrHello, I need to create a mbr for a usb flash drive, but for some reason Gparted can't, doing a low level format on the drive works (Yes I know that destroys the mbr) but then using Gparted I cannot create a new mbr, should I try gparted live cd or something?06:34
dr_willisthe question seems a little... vague.. You mean what Development envs. exist for linux?06:34
=== neurotus is now known as pirix
dr_willisyou mean gparte cant partion the drive at all?06:35
blackcatnekonegrdr_willis, sometimes it does, but I keep getting error mensages due to the mbr not existing06:35
amanthakurreisio, zombifier i want to use C as the programming language, will that work with qt?06:36
dr_willishmm. sounmds like the flash  drive may be failing.06:36
dr_willisif you 'zero' the flash with dd, then use gparted on it. first thing it asks is what sort of partioning scheme to use, (dos or that other one). does that work?06:37
=== headyadmin_ is now known as headyadmin
reisioamanthakur: yes06:37
amanthakurreisio, thansk :)06:37
blackcatnekonegrdr_willis, I tried a full low level format and it worked fine, if the device was damaged I would have got error messages, can gparted copy a mbr in the live cd? I could try to copy the mbr from another usb flash drive of the same size, would that work?06:38
dr_willisblackcatnekonegr:  exactly what do you mean by 'low level format'06:38
blackcatnekonegrdr_willis, it "seems" to work, then later I get error mensages06:38
dr_willissounds to me like its failing, and eventually will totally fail.06:39
weiyangcurrently, ubuntu doesn't use /etc/inittab?06:39
ubottuUpstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/06:39
dr_willistheres some other factoidon thst weiyang  bit i think.. correct. no inittab06:39
ubottuIn Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.06:40
blackcatnekonegrdr_willis, low level format cleans all the data in a hard disk, including mbr, is a last resort to make a drive use-able again, in theory after that, you should be able to create a mbr using gparted to make the drive useable again.06:40
dr_willisblackcatnekonegr:  how did you do this 'low level format'06:40

cougar_I was wondering if anyone might could help me out here. I initially created a liveboot usb from my usb external hard drive. However, when attempting to install ubuntu on my laptop, somehow I derped and installed it on my external. So now my laptop is misssing a OS and I can't get the liveboot to boot instead of regular Ubuntu. Any ideas or directions for search for me?07:10
=== JC_SoCal_ is now known as MoMo_
EliahKaganIt sounds like the problem is that your laptop doesn't let you choose which of multiple USB devices to boot, and is booting the big hard drive rather than the flash drive (and you want it to boot the flash drive). The easiest solution is to unplug the big hard drive from the computer and let it boot off the flash drive. Then plug the big hard drive in. Then do Install Ubuntu.07:13
=== MoMo_ is now known as MoMo
cougar_Let me clarify07:13
cougar_both the liveboot files and the now full ubuntu install are on the same external hard drive07:14
=== ray1claw_afk is now known as ray1claw
EliahKaganOh I see, and when you boot from the external hard drive, it boots the live boot files instead of the full Ubuntu install.07:14
cougar_No, it boots the full ubuntu install07:14
cougar_But I want to boot the liveboot07:14
EliahKaganAnd you want it to boot the live boot files, to install on the internal drive?07:15
cougar_So that I can install ubuntu onto my os-less laptop07:15
EliahKaganIs the external hard drive the only disk you have besides the internal hard disk?07:15
cougar_Normally I'd have just gotten a CD-RW07:16
EliahKaganDoes your laptop have a CD/DVD drive?07:16
cougar_But it wasn't available at the time07:16
cougar_It does. But I don't have a CD-RW to make a boot cd07:16
EliahKaganyou don't actually need a CD-RW, a CD-R will work (i.e., the CD doesn't have to be REwriteable)07:16
cougar_Right. Excuse me. I meant a cd in general.07:16
cougar_No problem.07:19
DaZcougar_: so the only os you have is on the external and you can boot it? :f07:20
waxstonein System Settings->Details->Graphics I see Driver Unknown but my graphics driver (Nvidia) was installed through "Additional Drivers" Widget. Am i missing something?07:21
DaZusually when i setup os on a different drive, and it's too dumb to let me do it with chroot, i set it through a virtual machine :f07:21
tnf-phoenixhow do i get my scanner working?07:22
tnf-phoenixnot a lot of libs when i sudoed.07:22
DaZwaxstone: does it work? :f07:22
cougar_Yes DaZ07:23
EliahKagancougar_: Since the live system on the external is probably not configured to be booted through the boot loader that was installed on the external in the installation process, the only ways I know of to make the external drive boot into the live system would involve booting from some other disk to change things on the external drive. That's not going to work for you, because you don't have any other disk. I think there might be a w07:23
EliahKaganay to boot into the live system on the external drive by issuing commands manually on the grub> prompt, but I don't know what commands would do that for you. However, there is another solution that comes to mind, which does not involve attempting to boot from the live system at all.07:23
waxstoneDaz: Im experencing RANDOM freezing so technically no07:23
cougar_I'm listening Eliah07:23
EliahKagan(typing) :-)07:24
EliahKagancougar_: Ubuntu's graphical installer, Ubiquity, can be installed on a non-live system, such as the system you can currently boot to on the external drive. You could install the package ubiquity in this system, and use it to install Ubuntu to the hard drive. This may or may not be painless, because I am not sure you have a package source handy. But you can create one if you don't.07:24
EliahKagancougar_: Before you try anything like that, though, there is something else that you should check. Are you absolutely sure that the OS *is* actually installed on the external drive? Is it possible that the OS is installed on the internal drive like you wanted, but that the GRUB2 boot loader is installed on the external drive? This would cause the operating system on the internal drive to require the external drive to be attached,07:25
EliahKaganin order to boot.07:25
yabooanyone using ivy bridge with ubuntu07:25
EliahKaganThis is also a much easier mistake to make installing, than anything I can think of that would both wipe out the internal disk and also install to the same disk that you were booted from for the installation.07:26
cougar_.... To be completely honest. I'm not 100% positive. The reason I believe it is installed on my external is because when I look at the files and folders on my external, I see all the normal system folders for a full ubuntu which weren't previously there.07:27
cougar_also, if I attempt to power on my laptop without my external plugged in, it goes to a blinking dash that doesn't change and if I attempt to press buttons I get a system beep.07:27
EliahKagancougar_: Does the external drive's access light activate (flicker) when you access these files?07:28
cougar_The external just has a on/off light. I.e. if it is powered on it will maintain a constant light (no flicker)07:28
cougar_However, I just checked, and I can physically feel the disk whirring in the external when I attempt to access new files.07:29
EliahKaganDo you know the sizes (about) of the external and internal drives? (I'm just trying to think of a simple way to check which has the OS, since your situation is already pretty complicated.)07:29
EliahKaganif you feel that when accessing the files and not otherwise, then it's on the external drive07:29
cougar_Right. My external is a terrabyte, but it did not install the whole TB because I had other data on it. My laptop is ~500 GB (I'm not actually positive)07:30
cougar_I really appreciate the help and you listening thus far by the way.07:30
cougar_Can you remember the terminal command off the top of your head for listing disk partitions?07:31
EliahKaganDo you have important other data on your external? Are you sure that data remains accessible? (We should be sure of that first.)07:31
EliahKagancougar_: the two most popular options are "sudo fdisk -l" and "sudo parted -l"07:31
EliahKagancougar_: you can list mounted partitions and their mount options with "mount" and you can list most mounted partitions and the amount of used, free, and total space with "df -h"07:32
cougar_I'm going to copy what I see here and see if you can tell me what I'm seeing better than I can07:33
cougar_Filesystem             Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on07:34
cougar_/dev/sda1              591G   12G  549G   3% /07:34

FloodBot1cougar_: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.07:34
EliahKagancougar_: if you want to try the Ubiquity idea, the actual package you'd install is ubiquity-frontend-gtk ...but i'm searching for information on this and there isn't a lot of it, Ubiquity does not seem designed to work in this way, so it might be best for you to just obtain a a few burnable CD's (a few in case you get a bad burn or something)07:34
EliahKagancougar_: that looks like output from "df -h" but if there is no mounted partition on the internal drive, then you won't see it; you might want to run "sudo fdisk -l" or "sudo parted -l" instead07:35
cougar_Yeah it is.07:36
EliahKaganyou can paste at http://paste.ubuntu.com -- that gives you a link to your pasted text, which you can post here07:36
cougar_Yeah. Thanks for that. I didn't know that previous07:36
EliahKagancougar_: Did you have important data on the external drive that you wanted to retain?07:37
cougar_I mean... I would like to not lose it if at all possible.07:38
cougar_Do you have an idea that would require losing it that would work?07:38
vexaxvhey guys, does anyone use freeotfe?07:38
waxstonein System Settings->Details->Graphics I see Driver Unknown but my graphics driver (Nvidia) was installed through "Additional Drivers" Widget. Am i missing something?07:38
EliahKagancougar_: No, I just wanted to make sure you didn't *already* lose it.07:39
EliahKagancougar_: I wanted to make sure you have successfully accessed it from within your currently installed Ubuntu system.07:39
cougar_Oh no. I can browse to it and use it fine, yes.07:39
cougar_It is indeed still there.07:39
* EliahKagan sighs with relief. Good!07:39
cougar_Is there anyway to simply move the ubuntu install from my external to my internal HD? XD07:40
vexaxvokay does anyone know of a good flash drive encryption software for ubuntu 12.04 64 bit??07:40
Mnemonic^Hi, does anyone know how to make SSH (server) NOT start at boot time. I cant figure out why it is starting. There are no scripts for it in /etc/rc#.d catalogs.07:41
EliahKagancougar_: Yes, you can move it...if you can run off an operating system other than it. You could attempt to move it from itself, but this would likely not work, and you might have subtle errors in the target system as a result.07:41
cougar_Gotcha. So no. hmm...07:42
cougar_I wish I could just create an image and then push the image to the seperate hard drive.07:42
EliahKagancougar_: The best thing to do might be to buy a cheap (it could be relatively small, like 1 GB) USB flash drive07:42
cougar_Yeah. I guess so.07:42
cougar_Thanks anyway07:43

wilee-nileevexaxv, I have not heard of a app that will just install to the flash, you can buy a flash that has that though.07:45
EliahKagancougar_: I wonder if you can run debian-installer (the text-based installer that is on the Ubuntu alternate CD) from inside an installed system.07:45
EliahKagancougar_: That would be something to look into.07:45
vexaxvwell maybe ill see if i can copy truecrypts files onto the drive07:45
cougar_I agree. Would be great07:45
yellabs-r2is wizardpen installed , or should i install it to get Trust slimline tablet TB-5300 working, any one using this drawing tablet ?07:46

cougar_Right. I'm in the process of googling. Thanks a lot for the help.07:48
EliahKagancougar_: or i'll be back in here at some point and would probably be willing to continue looking into it...but it sounds like you want your computer working without the external attached sooner rather than later ....so, good luck!

swine_hey, what would cause an initctl command to hang ?09:00
Solaris444what was the exact command you issued swine_?09:01
swine_initctl stop/start servicename09:01
Solaris444That wasn't the command you issued.09:02
swine_i wrote the control file for the service i'm starting09:02
zetherooJust did an update on my laptop running 11.10 and now my external speakers no longer work!! The laptop speakers work but when I plug the external speaker in there is no audio output at all ...09:02
swine_initctl stop zing-httpd09:02
Solaris444What command did you *actually* issue swine_?09:02
swine_if that makes you feel any better :)09:02
Solaris444ah ok.09:02
Solaris444and it's hanging when you try to stop it?09:02
swine_sometimes when i start it too09:02
swine_if interrupt it and then call stop again it won't hang09:03
swine_will say that it's already stopped09:03
Solaris444Then it sounds like your script is waiting on some information that it's never receiving.09:03
Solaris444I doubt it's initctl's fault.09:03
swine_it's a very simple script09:03
Solaris444zetheroo: Did you restart your laptop?09:03
Solaris444swine_: Even simple scripts can go wrong.09:03
Solaris444paste the script into pastebin.09:03

lorddeltaI'll repeat my question: How can I setup a script to turn ON my screen? I've tried at + xset dpms force on, hasn't worked. I'd appreciate knowing why, or if there's another path I can try to take. Like, an issue with at that would make a difference, or whether I should be looking into the i2c interface more.09:04
Solaris444lorddelta: What do you mean "turn it on"?09:05
Solaris444Do you mean wake it up from sleep?09:05
swine_Solaris444, you see anything interesting there ?09:05
lorddeltaSolaris444: xset dpms force off turns the screen power off. And blanks the screen (since this isn't e-ink). I want to be able to schedule the screen to turn back on.09:06
Solaris444swine_ most likely point of failure is the final line.09:06
Solaris444Try running it by itself and seeing what happens.09:06
swine_what do you mean by 'running it by itself' ?09:06
Solaris444lorddelta: You could always try simulating a keypress.09:07
Solaris444swine_: Issue the command to start you http daemon as it is written on the final line of your script and see what happens.09:07
lorddeltaSolaris444: If I was happy with making breakfast by pulling the string to pull the hammer to spin the wheel to...etc. etc., yes maybe I could try that ;)09:08
swine_Solaris444, it runs fine09:08
Solaris444Also it seems a bit strange that you would start on filesystem. It really should start on network.09:08
wildintwawowe, I mounted it myself09:08
Solaris444swine_: It's not a question of whether it "runs fine" but what kind of output it gives you.09:09
Solaris444lorddelta: Well since zset dpms force on isn't working...09:09

lorddeltaI want to know what the interfaces for correctly controlling the screen power itself might be. If I have to use i2c I suppose I could...but I've programmed screens/driver that used SPI/I2C, so I know that can be a hastle.09:10

sa7elakHello is there a tool to help me to get the right driver to my video card ?09:10
dr_willissa7elak:  what video card09:10
lorddeltaSolaris444: Yes. But the solution would be to fix xset dpms force on...or understand why at might not be able to call that successfully.09:10
sa7elaksis671 <dr_willis>09:10
dr_willissis? Egads...  those things are very poorly supported by the company09:11
dr_willisdoes it work at all?09:11
Solaris444swine_: Then I don't know. You might just have to add some debugging information to your script to see where it's getting stuck.09:11
sa7elakyeah I've been told so <dr_willis>09:11
swine_Solaris444, what script ? there's nothing there09:11
Solaris444And like I said, you've got "start on filesystem" for starters.09:12
Solaris444Go through line by line. Pretend you've never seen it before.09:12
swine_eh ?09:12
swine_what's "start on filesystem' ?09:12
Solaris444In the 3rd line of your script.09:12
dr_willis'run the service after the filesytems are all mounted'   (i belive is what thats saying to do)09:13
Solaris444Did you just copy and paste another script and then add your command to the end?09:13
sa7elak<dr_willis> i copied the driver files manually and to get higher resolution , I got the higher resolution but i still feel that the resolution is not correct also i get crash while playing vedios09:13
swine_Solaris444, more or less, yes09:13
swine_there's really nothing special here09:13

dr_willissa7elak:  hard to offer any suggestions. if its working at all.. you should consider youreslf lucky09:13
Solaris444swine_, stop assuming. Go and understand what every line of that script does and then you'll find out why it's hanging.09:14

Solaris444swine_, you've copied and pasted somebody else's code, and you don't understand it. Why would you assume it would work properly?09:15
swine_Solaris444, because it looks like every other service out there09:16
Solaris444No, it doesn't.09:16
Solaris444Your script is hanging because the instructions you've given it *tell* it to hang.09:17
swine_and which instuctions are those ?09:17
swine_this is why i came in here09:17
swine_i was asking what's a likely cause of a hang09:17
Solaris444The 18 lines of code in pastebin.09:17
swine_i'm guessing that this is a common problem with upstart services09:17
Solaris444No, it isn't.09:17
Solaris444It's a common problem with people who mess around with code they don't understand.09:17
dr_willisif its using network features - it needs to be told to start after networking is avilable.09:18
Solaris444You haven't even tried to understand the problem yourself.09:18
Solaris444I told him that already dr_willis. He hasn't listened.09:18
dr_willisnot after the filesystems get mounted09:18
swine_dr_willis, i'm running initctl on the commandline09:18
Solaris444Because it's "just like every other service".09:18

cypher-neoGreekFreak, Uninstalling Unity is complicated, but it regarded half the files on the computer as a dependencies. If you're that desperate to get rid of Unity, it's usually far easier to find an Ubuntu disk image that uses the desktop you prefer and (after backing up your files) reformat using that image.11:11

ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)12:18

DeltaHeavyDeathslycer: This is a "REAL" LAMPP server, where XAMPP is more of a simulation. Great if not better for developing in certain respects, but nobody uses XAMPP for production.12:22

DeltaHeavyDeathslycer: You'll learn a lot more this way as it's not some simulated enviroment. I had to use XAMPP for a course once and hated every moment of it lol. Was nice I could just bring around my whole production enviroment on a USB though. I'd say that's it's only advantage.12:24

DeltaHeavyChuck_Norris: I'm trying to help Deathslycer though. I don't know why you'd suggest the open driver over the proprietary one.12:30

Vinnie_winHow do I get xfree86-devel ?12:31
Chuck_NorrisPierreb: what command gives you that outputs?12:31
Pierrebsudo apt-get install aptitude12:31
DeltaHeavyPierreb: IMO, don't bother getting the free driver. Push Ubuntu into CLI mode and download the proprietary driver. If you tell me what card it is I can get you the link and you can download it directly from the command prompt12:32
PierrebDeltaHeavy: nvidia 420 gts12:32
DeltaHeavyPierreb: It's always better getting drivers made by the people who made the hardware than some reversed engineered garbage.12:32
Chuck_Norrisye, that will solve, becouse that way you will use nouveau, but, you can not play 3D games like Urban Terror with nouveau12:32

Dr_Willissirknight:  depending on how you put the disrto on the flash drive. there may not be any free space to use.12:43

DeltaHeavyPierreb: For some god awful reason "NetworkManager" is a GUI only tool and is what is often required to maintain an internet connection when it's already configured. Try starting the NetworkManager service, or boot into a normal mode and just get into the CLI (I know the GUI hangs) with Ctrl + Alt + F112:45

fidel_Charlie410: in short - some kind of irc-operator13:29
Dr_Willis!java | ldgs13:29
ubottuldgs: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.13:29

kvarleyIs there a way to clone an SD Card with dd but in a way that the output of the device is half the size of the actual card? For example my SD card is 512 MB but the content on there only actually fills 128MB, is there a way to clone the partitions but with a smaller cylinder size?13:30
ldgsDr_Willis should i install 6 or 7 of the jre13:31
gvokvarley: you'd probably be better off cloning it then shrinking it.13:31

Daraelkvarley: Is there any reason a simple copy of the files on it wouldn't serve your purposes?13:32
Dr_Williskvarley:  you could use resiZe  The partion on the sd card as small as you can with gpartd. then image that filesystem. not the whole device.13:33
kvarleyDarael: Yes - I'm making an image which is going to be written to a card to be booted on an ARM device13:33
Daraelkvarley: I see.  You're probably best off doing as Dr_Willis suggests, then.13:33
kvarleyDr_Willis: Would that carry over boot flags for that partition?13:33
Dr_Williskvarley:  bootable image. that does make it tougher. still you could make 2 partions on it. shrink one, then leave the back half unallocated. that way when you run out of space. its not hurting anything.13:34

ubottuDeathslycer: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)13:56

ubottuJonnyRo: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic14:30

ironmreisio, are you on drugs or drunken ? *g*14:40
txomonreisio, so, any idea for those apt uris?14:41
reisiochrometiger: I doubt you'll need to go to such lengths14:41
reisiochrometiger: first I'd try simply mv'ing /etc/X11/xorg.conf elsewhere (you might want it later for the nvidia box), and making sure xserver-xorg-video-intel is installed14:42
reisiotxomon: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptURL14:42
chrometigerreisio:   k  how to i make sure of that ?14:42
reisioedlinde: yup, 12GB14:43
fizk_webmin.com is down14:43
reisiofizk_: good :p14:43
fizk_reisio, why is that good14:43
reisiochrometiger: try it and if it works you know and if it doesn't work you know14:43
bazhangfizk_, webmin is not supported here14:43
reisiofizk_: security hazard14:43
edlindereisio, thanks14:43
xyzzy_Is there a way of preventing a single, one-off command from getting stored in bash's history?14:44
fizk_what do you recommend14:44
gudjonhelp with surround sound:14:44
bazhang!webmin | fizk_14:44
ubottufizk_: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.14:44
gudjoni want to have:14:44
gudjonHDMI submitting sound as usual14:44
gudjon3x 3.5mm jacks on motherboard to submit sound to home theatre system.14:44
gudjonat the same time.?14:44
FloodBot1gudjon: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.14:44
edlindereisio, and for Ubuntu version : can I just say "uname -a"14:44
imbezolxyzzy_: unset HSTFILE14:44
chrometigerreisio:  my xorg.conf  just says default device    it doesn't even say  nvidia14:44
bazhangfizk_, zentyal14:44
reisioxyzzy_: you can just clear the history afterwards with history -c && echo '' > ~/.bash_history14:44
bazhang!ebox > fizk_14:44
ubottufizk_, please see my private message14:44
fizk_bazhang, ok, thanks14:44
xyzzy_reisio: I don't want to clear the whole history, just exlude a single command which will contain a password14:45
reisioedlinde: for a generic idea, yes14:45
reisioedlinde: cat /etc/*release* might be more specific14:45
* reisio shrugs14:45
reisioxyzzy_: ah, you shouldn't ever type a password in plain text (so it can be seen by eyes), history or not14:45
reisiochrometiger: not necessarily relevant :p14:45
reisiochrometiger: point is nvidia's driver (not nouveau) uses xorg.conf, but using intel you shouldn't need it (and probably further do not want it present)14:46
imbezolxyzzy_: TMPHIST="$HISTFILE" ; unset HISTFILE ; dosomething_you_want_unlogged ; export HISTFILE="$TMPHIST"14:46
gudjonneed help with surround-sound how to connect 5.1 with 3x jack plugs with out disable-ing sound on HMDI14:47
reisiogudjon: why would you have to disable sound on hdmi?14:47
gudjoni dont want to disable the sound on the HDMI14:48
chrometigerreisio:  ok i've moved it     now what,,   reboot,  and what do i do if it doesn't boot back ?14:48
reisiogudjon: so don't14:48
reisiochrometiger: it'll boot whether X works or not14:48
reisiochrometiger: did you make sure the package was installed?14:48
chrometigerhow ?14:48
gudjoni want to have both i cant manage to output sound on multible jack plugs14:49
reisiochrometiger: sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel14:49
reisiogudjon: sounds like a situation for #pulseaudio14:49
chrometigerreisio:    ok newest version is installed14:49
gudjonreisio thanks i'll check it out :)14:50
reisiochrometiger: if X doesn't start use CTRL+ALT+F2 if necessary to drop to a console, you can use the package 'irssi' to IRC from outside of X, good luck14:50
dob1hi, there is a way while connecting to a public wifi network to configure ubuntu to disable all the share folders etc?14:52
fl1bbl3dob1: probably easier to raise shields (iptables)14:52
JonnyRofl1bbl3, I agree. I was originally going to propose stopping the samba service, but that could be a pain in the ass14:53
troulouliou_devhi what is the best tool to set up a planning in diagram and export it in  pdf and excell format14:53
JonnyRoat least to automate14:53
dob1fl1bbl3, welcome to user friendly, it's more simple to shutdown samba then14:53
JonnyRotroulouliou_dev, i'm a pretty big fan of inkscape14:53
troulouliou_dev+- the equivalent of microsoft project under  in windows14:53
JonnyRotroulouliou_dev, GNU project is pretty decent14:53
troulouliou_devJonnyRo, nice will take a look at it14:54
fl1bbl3dob1: well not really, and presupposed that only Samba is listening14:54
txomonty reisio14:54
Cajun_Lan_ManHello everyone.  Could someone help me figure out why 12.04 refuses to authenticate to my AD network shares? I've never had this problem with Ubuntu before.14:55
fl1bbl3dob1: you can just have a publicwifi script that automates flipping iptables to reject any inbound packet that isn't part of an existing connection14:55
reisiotroulouliou_dev: http://alternativeto.net/software/microsoft-project/?platform=linux14:55
reisiotroulouliou_dev: a lot of web-based stuff these days, too14:55
gvoHaving a problem with b43 driver.  Did apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer but the "additional drivers" menu doesn't find it.  A modprobe of b43 unknown symbol in module, log says it doesn't like b43.blacklist14:55
fl1bbl3thats flipping as in switching over, not flipping as in fricking :)14:55
chrometigerreisio:  ok  still  I dont have the ability to use gnome shell     or Unity     keep getting reverted to  gnome classic14:56
gvohttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx I'm following these instructions but they don't seem to work for 12.0414:56
budddhadoes ANyone know anything about configuring samba?14:56
dob1fl1bbl3, i see your points, i can create an iptables script that reject incoming connections as you said, but it's bit a surprise that when you configure a connection on ubuntu theare are not options for this, in windows xp there are,  maybe they prefer to develop unity ....14:56
compdocbudddha, somewhat14:57
bazhangbudddha, whats the real question14:57
troulouliou_devreisio, nice , planner looks good for my needs14:57
reisiochrometiger: that's not necessarily abnormal, I believe it assesses your hardware and chooses which based on what you've got14:57
budddhai have 2 printers on the ubuntu machine that i want to access from a win xp machine14:57
reisiotroulouliou_dev: no nonsense? Got something against nonsense?! :p14:57
budddhai can see my computer when i do discovery but not my printers14:58
budddhahow do i do this properly?14:58
compdocI dont share printers, but dont you use cups for that?14:58
budddhacups didnt work for me14:59
budddhasamba was recommended14:59
OerHeksbudddha, i would acces the printers tru http://<hostname>:631/printers/<printername> >>> https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NetworkPrintingFromWinXP14:59
=== eid is now known as eid_
compdocIm not sure samba by itself shares printers15:00
chrometigerreisio: its like I have no drivers installed at all   even google earth says  unknown graphics card and closes15:00
troulouliou_devreisio, no pdf / excell export tough15:01

Brustoski-FanAny idea's on how to enable rgba window transparency15:02
Pierrebgvo: it booted into it15:02
gvoPierreb What did you install from?15:03
gvoVersion/level, etc.15:03
Pierrebgvo: regular iso from ubuntu15:03
Pierrebcurrent lts15:03
gvoIt should have gone into the gui automatically.15:03
Pierrebi updated the graphic drivers...15:03
gvoDid you attempt the live cd first?15:03
gvoPierreb: did it work in gui mode before you updated the graphic drivers?15:04
Pierrebgvo: the installation booted into gui before but i updated the nvidia drivers and now it kinda wont boot into gui15:04
Pierrebjust cli15:04
gvoPierreb: edit the .xsession-errors file15:05
gvoPierreb: You may be able to see a meaningful error.15:05
gvoPierreb: also try dmesg | less and page through to see if there are any errors.15:06
Pierrebgvo: kk ill check that15:06
SKullB0xhi, what is the root directory of nginx for public access. /usr/share/nginx/www/ works find locally. but i have port farwarded for remote access n i get 404 status15:08
ikoniaSKullB0x: the directory doesn't change15:08
SKullB0xthe response headers show the nginx/1.0.5 as server15:08
Pierrebgvo: found it it says the kernel module have version 295.45 and im running 295.5315:09

SKullB0xikonia: but i can't access my website remotely :(.  it works locally thou15:09
gvoPierreb: Interesting.15:09
icerootItalSpliff: stop it15:09
ikoniaItalSpliff: please don't spam15:09
ikoniaSKullB0x: yes, that's most likley your port forwarding setup wrong, or your web server not set to listen on the right address15:09
DJonesklined already15:09
spillerei've installed ubuntu virtual machine on a ubuntu host. I have two IPs, i set the same ip configuration from the host on the guest, just changing the ip address, any idea on other things i have to change to make it work?15:09
RowleyHey guys and girls.  Anyone in here technically minded on Wifi problems?15:10
reisiospillere: mv /etc/udev/rules.d/*persistent* stuff15:10
ikoniaRowley: just ask your real question15:10
rasalhaguehello everyone15:10
SKullB0xikonia the server is listening. it says nginx/1.0.5 in the response headers but the status is 404!15:10
reisiospillere: unless it wasn't migrated, in which case don't :p15:10
Cajun_Lan_ManHello everyone.  Could someone help me figure out why 12.04 refuses to authenticate to my AD network shares? I've never had this problem with Ubuntu before.15:11
ikoniaSKullB0x: ok, so look at the nginx log see if it gets the hit and what the error is15:11
amelia_Hej -- on a machine running 11.10, do i want to do the update manager route to 12.04 or do a fresh install from LiveUSB? Pros/Cons of each?15:11
ikoniaSKullB0x: it's probably not set to listen on the public address, so when it gets headers from the public address doesn't know what to do with them15:12
ikoniaamelia_: totally your call15:12
RowleyOk looked through a tonne of info still no answer. I have a TP-Link 300 mbps wireless PCI adapter. It wold seem that it makes 12.04 freeze whenever it is turned on.  From study people say it needs Atheros drivers and it indeed picks up these in the install. Is there anyhting else I could try.15:12
OerHeksamelia_, download the iso, put it on usb and do release upgrade. if anything goes wrong, you have an usb to solve problems15:12
ikoniaRowley: it makes your whole machine physically lock up ?15:13
amelia_OerHeks: release upgrade? And do you mean just go the "Update Manager" route and have the USB just in case?15:13
RowleyYes it does15:13
spillerereisio; what you mean?15:13
OerHeksamelia_, yes, this is the safest way to do.15:13
ikoniaRowley: does the mouse still move ?15:13
reisiospillere: nothing, did you have a problem?15:13
amelia_Thought so, thanks - although I prefer the fresh install, I've heard upgrading can cause issues15:14
SKullB0xikonia: how do i make nginx serve public address like it would do locally15:14
RowleyYes I believe the mouse still moves.15:14
ikoniaSKullB0x: it depends on your set,15:14
ikoniaRowley: can you confirm ?15:14
spillerereisio i have 70-persistent-net.rules, do i move it where?15:14
Cajun_Lan_Manamelia_: Clean installs are always more likely to be problem free.  One thing you may want to consider is how much customization you've put into the system.  Upgrades will carry over a lot of that customatization, and save you the hassle of having to do it all over again.15:14
ikoniaSKullB0x: what do the logs say for the hits15:14
RowleyYes I can confirm that the mouse still moves.15:14
fizk_bazhang, I installed Zentyal, but I'm unable to add/remove local users15:14
ikoniaRowley: ok, so the machine isn't hard locking then, good15:14
reisiospillere: nowhere, though you had migrated the install to the guest system, but you did a fresh install didn't you15:15
ikoniaRowley: so what happenes if you click on an icon, say launch an application like a terminal15:15
spillerereisio: yes i have never user a VM on my server before15:15
spillereso it's the first time15:15
amelia_Cajun_Lan_Man: that was my thinking, thanks15:15
RowleyWell it does not usually let me get that far. I litrally have 10 to 30 seconds on connection time15:15
fizk_bazhang, I thought the Users and Groups module would have this feature, but it only has the ability to change the ldap user mode15:15
spillerereisio: do i need to change things on the host or the guest?15:15
RowleyWith Ethernet lead in however it is fine, also I updated fully using an Ethernet lead, tried a full re-install with wifi off also.15:16
Cajun_Lan_Manamelia_: If you do try the upgrade, just make sure your data is backed up, and have the USB/CD to do a clean install if it goes wonky on you.15:17
ikoniaRowley: the connection being there/not there shouldn't change if you can open an application or not15:17
ikoniaRowley: what happens when you try to launch an application, such as a terminal15:17
amelia_yup, tack :)15:17
RowleyAs soon as wifi is turned on all I have functioning is the mouse so I cannot use terminal or any application, however with wifi off I can use Ubuntu completely fine with no problems what so ever.15:18
Molfarhi there. In /etc/rc.local I have put a command (cd /home/ubuntu/keybow && git pull) &>/home/ubuntu/git.log but after reboot I see empty file /home/ubuntu/git.log, but I expect it to have git's output. what is that?15:18
Molfargenerally, I need to update git repository at system startup15:19
OsakasaHi, i'm trying to install wine1.5 but get this error (2 lines) E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable) and second line E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?15:19
ikoniaRowley: what happens when you try to launch an application such as a terminal15:19
MolfarOsakasa: try sudo15:19
Osakasayep, sudo apt-get install wine1.515:19
spillerereisio: do i need to add another SUBSYSTEM then on host?15:19
MolfarOsakasa: or close synaptic15:19
RowleyIt does nothing. It does not seem to register the fact I clicked on anything.15:20
reisiospillere: to accomplish what?15:20
fizk_ah, module wasn't enabled15:20
spillerereisio: on my VM guest, i can't access the internet15:20
Osakasaworked, thanks ☺15:20
reisiospillere: modprobe e100015:20
ikoniaRowley: ok, so when you click the icon to launch something, there is nothing to signify it's actually taken the click15:20
RowleyThat is correct15:20
spillerereisio: what does it do?15:21
reisiospillere: enables the network driver :p15:21
ikoniaRowley: as a test can you please open a terminal, make sure it has focus, then turn on wifi, when the machine starts being a problem, see if you can still type in the terminal15:21
reisiospillere: assuming the default, lspci | grep -i net would tell you for sure which is being provided15:21
Rowleyright ok will do15:21
spillerereisio: ifconfig give's me ip's and everuthing15:22
reisiospillere: check net settings in vbox, should be set to NAT by default15:22
spillereI set as bridge15:22
reisiospillere: why'd you do that15:23
spillerereisio: idk, VMs at my work are like this, let me try NAT15:23
Cerrdorwhich package has dig, host etc..?15:23
reisioCerrdor: apt-file could tell you15:24
imbezolCerrdor: try bind9utils15:24
DerpadongIsnt MATE like a clone of GNOME2 but more updated?15:25
imbezolCerrdor: host is bind9-host on my machine15:25
reisioDerpadong: it's a clone, anyways15:25
reisioDerpadong: and by clone I mean fork15:25
Cerrdorbut I need a dig15:25
reisioand by fork I mean they ran s/gnome/mate/15:25
DerpadongOh ok15:25
reisioCerrdor: ...15:26
spillerereisio: anyway as NAT it doesnt work, maybe the IP's i'm using arent right15:26
spillerehow to set DHCP back on?15:26
reisioshould probably talk to #vbox, then15:26
Cerrdorreisio, -bash: apt-file: command not found15:26
spillereill do15:26
reisiospillere: what's the guest going to be for, exactly?15:26
fizk_nice, I saved changes on Ebox and now my server is unresponsive15:26
reisioCerrdor: install it15:26
chrometigerreisio: ok   Unity works now  not well but works,   gnomeshell and google earth does not,  I still dont know whats going on ?15:26
spillerereisio: a python dev machine15:26
reisiofizk_: and that's why you don't use webUIs to administer servers15:26
imbezolreisio Cerrdor: you can just do dpkg -S /path/to/file15:27
fizk_reisio, are you kidding me, I've been using webmin just fine for a long time15:27
reisiochrometiger: I doubt googleearth is related15:27
reisiochrometiger: gnome shell I don't know, it might require accel15:27
* reisio shrugs15:27
reisiospillere: can't you do that on your Ubuntu... host?15:27
Cerrdorimbezol, the file isnt installed yet15:27
reisioimbezol: ^15:27
spillerereisio: yes but i want to set on a guest15:28
reisiofizk_: what does my kidding you or not have to do with you having used webmin for a long time15:28
spilleremaybe i install ubuntu graphic then15:28
reisiospillere: but why :p15:28
spillerereisio: coz i want to have a VM for some other things that i can screw up15:29
reisiokay :p15:29
reisiospillere: not sure why you need more than DHCP in that case15:29
spillerei didnt install DHCP15:29
spillerecoz i'm installling on a ded server, which dont have DHCP i guess15:30
reisiommm, unlikely, but15:30
* reisio shrugs15:30
spillereill reinatall and try to set it with DHCP then15:30
reisiospillere: you don't have to reinstall :/15:31
spillerehow do I set DHCP?15:31
spillereit's only terminal15:31
reisiojust undoing whatever you did in your attempt to use a static IP should suffice15:32
spillerei did static when istalling15:32
reisiosilly installers15:33
chrootreisio: i found that if i want to use mutt, i have to install postfix, but i don't want to install a mail server.15:34
reisioactually that's probably the wrong page15:34
reisiochroot: no you don't have to15:34
reisiospillere: reverse of this, probs :p http://www.ubuntugeek.com/change-ubuntu-system-from-dhcp-to-a-static-ip-address.html15:35
chrootreisio: i just want to use mutt instead of thunderbird, is it easy?15:35

Cajun_Lan_Mancompdoc: regardless of how I'm logged in, it prompts me for a username, password, and domain. In previous versions, I just filled out the required info, told it to remember me until I log out, and everything was fine.  However now, in 12.04, it prompts me for the info, I enter it, but it just repeats the prompt, as if I had entered the incorrect information.16:00
L3topwhat is your issue xentrepreneur?16:01
icerootjrib: the bug is the version of the package, someone forgot 1_3.3.* they used 3.3.* without the 1_16:02
peterrooneyportis0: can't see why not.  ext3/4 filesystem drivers exist for windows.16:02

Ezimhi everyone. will ubuntu update libreoffice 3.4.5 under 12.04 should a user use ppa or download from there site?16:04
portis0peterrooney - so it is feasible that a dual booting linux/windows laptop with a virus on windows could allow access to the linux machine when booted? In this case linux was installed from windows.16:04
icerootxentrepreneur: then the session was killed16:04
xentrepreneuri can acces the session from the remote desktop16:04
icerootxentrepreneur: xrdp will always first look if there is another open session (not the session directly on the real screen because that session is different)16:04

blackcatnekonegrwawowe, ubuntu cannot read the device anymore besides the "AX216 FLASH READER" thing, so is a bit late for that, to sum up the device was broken from day one, usb flash drives have no guaranty, every kind of format has ended bad, I even did a low lever format then created a Master boot record, but is useless, not not even gparted sees the device anymore. Sometimes one gets faulty hardware I guess.17:01

schreberhow do you unmount a mounted drive? I've tried sudo umount /dev/blah1 but I get a 'device is busy' message when clearly it's not.17:15
wawoweschreber: lsof | grep /dev/blah117:16
wawoweschreber: or /mnt/blah117:16
wawoweschreber: kill the process that's using it17:16
blackcatnekonegrschreber, first close any program, window that may be using the device, if that fails, try right click, "unmount" use "Safe unmount" if available17:16
bjorkintoshwawowe, how do i redirect the sound to my new sound card?17:17
wawowebjorkintosh: pastebin the output of aplay -l and tell me which card you want to use17:18
schreberthe lsof | grep /dev/blah1 didn't return anything neither did the it's alternative /mnt/blah117:18
escottschreber, did you "cd" out of that folder17:18
bjorkintoshcard 1: Headset [HP Digital Stereo Headset], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]  Subdevices: 1/117:19
bjorkintoshthat's the card i want to use ^17:19
wawowebjorkintosh: k17:19
escottschreber, you can also issue a "dismount when possible" command which will prevent new processes from accessing the disk, but not fully unmounting17:19
iLogicalMy keyboard is a generic abnt 2 keyboard... I don't see my keyboard's brand anywhere in this list, what do I do:17:19
schreberhow do I issue that command?17:19
escottiLogical, select a generic 104 keyboard then17:19
blackcatnekonegrschreber, if that does not work, see if the device is being written (Usually the light is on) and wait until it ends. If nothing seems to work, just shut down the system (By using linux, not manually) if you see any error messages during the shut down, try to virus scan the hard disk /usb flash drive and also scan for errors.17:20
wawowebjorkintosh: put http://paste.ubuntu.com/1015105/ in ~/.asoundrc17:20
schreberit's an internal drive not external17:20
blackcatnekonegriLogical, pick generic keyboard and manually set the language, keyboard setting.17:20
iLogicalescott, thanks17:20
escottiLogical, umount -l, just be aware that doing so does not actually dismount the device so you cant unplug17:20
escottschreber, ^^ not iLogical17:21

EaglemanI'm having an issue with windows supporting characters in file names, i currently have this script and since windows isnt supporting : and linux isnt allowing me to replace the : with ; OUTPUTFILE="/media/usbbackupdisk/configbackups/configbackup_$(date +%m-%d-%Y_%I:%M).tar.gz"17:21

bootstrapHi, I'm having an external hd issue.  Only some of my folders are visible.  Anyone know why?  The folders are still there just not visible, ex: I can cd to /music in terminal17:22
escottEagleman, although I cannot understand what would compel you to put any of those characters in the filename17:22
iLogicalwith just worked very fine blackcatnekonegr17:22
Eagleman(date +%m-%d-%Y_%I/;%M) doesnt work17:23
blackcatnekonegrEagleman, tried massive renaming the files in windows? or if you want to rename files in linux, "Purrr" while old, works well.17:23
wawowebootstrap: may be corrupted17:23
PiciEagleman: it would be \; not /;17:23
wawowebootstrap: if it's fat16 or something like that17:24
bootstrapwawowe it's ntfs17:24
EaglemanThanks Pici it worked17:24
escottEagleman, for your own sanity I would strongly suggest %Y%m%d%I%M17:24
blackcatnekonegriLogical, did you fix your keyboard problem?17:24
EaglemanAnd why is that escott17:25
wawowebootstrap: don't know then, could try defragging it17:25
iLogicalblackcatnekonegr, it asked to configure it to upgrade17:25
EaglemanWhat i have now looks better and is easier to read on windows17:25
iLogicalit's working still17:25
escottEagleman, because special characters in filenames are bad (as you are discovering) and because your current format does not sort correctly, but %Y%m%d does17:25
iLogicalI guess we will see if it works after reboot ;) blackcatnekonegr17:25
bootstrapwawowe: yeah, I'm going to try now, just wanted to ask to see what others thought17:26
wawowebootstrap: either way you should think about backing up as much as you can17:26
EaglemanIt sorts well escott17:26
bootstrapwawowe: yeah thanks, I have it on dropbox and wuala already, so it isn't a huge deal17:26

ubottudonvito: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Gufw (GNOME) and Guarddog (KDE from Lucid onwards) also exist.17:37

CoJaBowawowe: This is Grub1 tho17:46
Jordan_UCoJaBo: Then I would recommend configuring your existing grub legacy install to boot the Ubuntu 12.04 netboot installer. It will run completely from RAM so it can install to the hard drive it was initially loaded from. If it fails during install you might be left with a completely unbootable system though.17:46
jfroebeanyone know of a way to install ubuntu 12.04 remotely?  I currently have remote access (via logmein) to a windows box that needs to be rebuilt to ubuntu 12.04 - I do not have physical access to the machine.  Win7 would be wiped from the box.17:46

ubottuiLogical: Ubuntu 11.10 uses GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic17:52

wawowemonika: download the lib and put it in ~/.mozilla/plugins17:52
blackcatnekonegrmonika, what version of opera are you using?17:53
Jordan_UCoJaBo: The first thing you need to do is download the netboot kernel and initrd from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/netboot/precise/ but to know which to download you need to know if your computer has a 64 bit processor (just like you need to know with any OS installation).17:53

Jordan_UCoJaBo: Since you only have one hard drive there is pretty much nothing you can do to install Ubuntu which won't involve some risk of making that drive unbootable. Even creating a new partition on the same drive and bootstrapping from there carries some risk. I think my solution is the least risk because it's the simplest, it's a standard installation using the netboot installer with nothing fancy to make it less reliable.18:08
PenguincscCoJaBo: can you get one?18:08
CoJaBoPenguincsc: I have a USB CD drive and SD card; it boots from neither of these.18:08
PenguincscCoJaBo: All you need is at least 2GB18:08

blackcatnekonegrBhavesh, there is not such a thing as the perfect generic driver, if you have a proprietary video card use the proprietary video card driver unless card is a generic.18:09
CoJaBoPenguincsc: Not sure if it will even boot from it- I've never seen a machine that boots from neither a USB CD drive nor SD18:09
svm_invictvsYou're going to laugh at me for asking this...18:09
mcb_1donvito2: Yes, but you have to download de .deb and install it with dpkg.18:09

svm_invictvsI downloaded a binary from the web, trying to run it.  I get bash: ./foo.bin: No such file or directory18:10
svm_invictvsThis is despite the fact that file is right there18:10
PenguincscCoJaBo: I used an SD card to install Ubuntu on my cd-less netbook18:10
blackcatnekonegrBhavesh, both ATi and NVIDIA are know to have problems with ubuntu generic drivers18:10
PenguincscCoJaBo: try this: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows18:10
Rud_svm_invictvs: chmod a+x foo.bin18:10
svm_invictvspatrick@ubuntu:~$ ./server924_linux32.bin18:10
svm_invictvs-bash: ./server924_linux32.bin: No such file or directory18:10
CoJaBoPenguincsc: Yeh, I've done that on my netbook before I got my CD drive. Neither work on this machine tho.18:10
PenguincscCoJaBo: You can use the SD card with a special adapter18:11
Jordan_Usvm_invictvs: The file which isn't found is the standard 32 bit C library that the binary depends on but which you haven't installed yet on your primarily 64 bit system.18:11
Bhaveshblackcatnekonegr: So what am I supposed to do if I want a video card driver?18:11
CoJaBoPenguincsc: It has an internal SD18:11
Bhaveshblackcatnekonegr: Well I have a Nvidia GeForce video card. It was supported earlier on Ubuntu 11.10 but not now.18:11
