dr_willis!info guake00:00
ubottuguake (source: guake): Drop-down terminal for GNOME Desktop Environment. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.4.2-7 (precise), package size 147 kB, installed size 894 kB00:00
reisiotonsofpcs: it's a terminal that hides off screen until you tell it to show up00:00
ActionParsniptonsofpcs: did you ever play half life, counterstrike or quake?00:00
reisiothat is: it's a terminal with predefined shortcuts to appear and disappear00:00
dr3mrowill wayland composite support replace compiz !!00:00
tonsofpcsah, so it's ` ;)00:00
ActionParsniptonsofpcs: exactly00:01
tonsofpcs[that's a yes, ActionParsnip]00:01
ActionParsniptonsofpcs: there is a lighter guake-like app called tilde too :)00:01
tonsofpcsdr3mro: I still want e17 to replace compiz...00:01
BrowserActionParsnip: no, it is strange in the before Ubuntu's version i hadn't problems00:01
tonsofpcsbut ~ is tilde, wouldn't tilde be the 'high brow' version of grave?00:01
ActionParsniptonsofpcs: its great, run a command then hide the terminal, you can check progress by bringing it back down :)00:01
dr_willisf12 may be geting grabbed by the desktop00:02
tonsofpcsActionParsnip: so it's like screen for my gui screen? :)00:02
ActionParsniptonsofpcs: its just a drop down terminal, dead handy00:02
ipproblemActionParsnip: I fixed the problem... I resolved the IP for us.archive.ubuntu.com and then wrote it into /etc/hosts00:02
dr3mrotonsofpcs, I think all composite  managers will die for wayland as it will be a part of it as a plugin !! i read something like that00:02
BrowserWell, i am going to restart again..00:02
ActionParsnipipproblem: nice00:02
tonsofpcsdr3mro: have you ever used enlightenment?00:03
BrowserBye, thanks.00:03
ActionParsnipBrowser: make sure you link /usr/share/applications/guake.desktop in ~/.config/autostart00:03
dr3mrotonsofpcs, No!00:03
trismgkatsev: looks like it needs a bit of updating for 12.04, but otherwise it looks accurate. if you have to download the packages, in addition to the packages listed you will also need: dkms, the linux-headers packages for your kernel version and the ndiswrapper-dkms package00:03
trismgkatsev: I think everything else should be installed by default00:03
tonsofpcsdr3mro: i highly recommend it00:03
tonsofpcswhen I used linux for 'desktop' work, it was amazing.00:03
dr3mrowhen will 3.4 kernel hit ubuntu precise repos!!00:03
BrowserActionParsnip: yes, there is a link00:04
tonsofpcs(I now don't do 'desktop' work outside of work so it's not really useful)00:04
dr3mrotonsofpcs, but I use unity and it needs compiz!00:04
CoJaBoEr. Why does it show up in the boot menu as "Ubuntu, with Linux"? lol00:04
robertzaccourhow do I enable the codecs for kdenlive?00:04
ActionParsnipdr3mro: it won't, it's a Quantal kernel00:04
tonsofpcsbut e17 > unity.00:04
tonsofpcs(I know, I'm a heathen for saying that here)00:04
ActionParsnipdr3mro: there are 3rd party sources for the kernel but it won't be suppored here00:04
dr_willise17.. has issues.00:05
werderdr3mro: 3.4 won't be coming to 12.0400:05
gkatsevtrism: do I need the linux-headers if I'm just installing from apt-get?00:05
myherohow to save the full irssi log of the current session ?00:05
KRomo3.4 kernel wont work with nvidia driver, beware00:05
tonsofpcsdr_willis: it does? is e16 the stable one then?  I always get the two confused...00:05
myherohow to save the full irssi log of the current session ?00:05
dr_willistonsofpcs:  both have really quirky... quirks.00:05
tonsofpcsmyhero: I think it only logs from the point you set logging on ...00:06
dr3mroActionParsnip, I did install it by back porting it from quantal to my personal PPA on launchpad !! but wouldn't it be nice if it's available in the repos as an option!!!00:06
KRomohow do i check for drive errors in ubuntu?00:06
harushimocan someone write that symbolic link code for virtual box00:06
myherotonsofpc: means....00:06
tonsofpcsdr_willis: like?00:06
trismgkatsev: yes because ndiswrapper-dkms has to build the ndiswrapper kernel module for your kernel (in previous ubuntu versions it was included in the linux-image package, but dropped in 12.04 unfortunately)00:06
tonsofpcsmyhero: 'no'00:06
BrowserActionParsnip: i am going to restart again..00:06
werderdr3mro: I've heard lots of problems with 3.400:06
dr3mroActionParsnip, even when Quantal is released!!00:06
harushimoI created an icon. I want to do that00:06
ActionParsnipdr3mro: its not a Precise kernel, it will be in Quantal00:06
gkatsevtrism: ah, ok. Maybe that's why it didn't actually connect.00:06
myherotonsofpf: any way to save irssi log ?00:07
dr3mrowerder, for me it has better over all performance and  less heat from the FAN !!00:07
ActionParsnipdr3mro: quantal is 12.10 so will be released in the 10th month of 201200:07
dr_willison my phone  cant type a lot. go try them00:07
reisioif it's released on time00:07
reisiowhich is likely00:07
werderdr3mro: sweet, maybe I'll give it a try then00:07
reisioand you can get betas before then00:07
dr3mroActionParsnip, I know !! but why not back port it and give the user an option !00:07
con-manname a good php server program I can stall to test websites locally00:07

werderdr3mro: the Canonical team is pretty small for the size of the base. They only have so many people.00:08
harushimois this the correct command?00:08
con-manreisio, oh apache has native php support? w00t.00:08
ActionParsnipharushimo: you want to link the desktop file in /usr/share/applications00:08
harushimoit should00:08

harushimoln -s /usr/bin/virtualbox /usr/share/applications/Virtual.desktop00:09
harushimolike that?00:09
piper69_can someone please help me00:09
ActionParsnipharushimo: no00:10
dr_willisharushimo:  a. desktop file is not a binary executable00:10
=== notmegazig is now known as _schism_
dr3mropiper69_, !?00:10
werderdr3mro: right but remember 12.04 is their new business release and they don't want people coming to them with problems they can't support00:10
ActionParsnipharushimo: ln -s /usr/share/applications/virtualbox.desktop ~/Desktop/VirtualBox.desktop00:10
ActionParsnipharushimo: use TAB to complete the names00:10
CoJaBoLoll.. Wifi still doesn't work "out of the box" -_-'00:10

piper69_dr3mro: i am trying to add w32codec for vlc to play wmv files00:10
dr_willisCoJaBo:  did for me00:11
ActionParsnipCoJaBo: depends on the chip...ALL my wifis work out of the box00:11
CoJaBodr_willis: Huh; well it says the driver is installed and in use, but no wifi card appears.00:11
dr3mrowerder, but in 2 years new hardware will emerge and busness users need new kernel as will as kernel installing is pretty safe as it never over write the old kern00:11
harushimovirtual box source destination for me is /usr/bin/virtualbox00:11
piper69_i have wasted 1hr trying to get this thing to work instead of studying00:11
piper69_please help00:11
harushimowhy wouldn't you use this00:11
reisiopiper69_: okay00:11
harushimoafter this, I'm done00:12
harushimothank you00:12
werderdr3mro: remember lots of businesses haven't upgraded from XP yet. Change is bad and I don't think Ubuntu hardware requirements will be drastically different 2 years from now.00:12
ActionParsnipharushimo: thats the binary, not the desktop file which will give a decent icon00:12
piper69_resisio i tried smplayer,mplayer, vlc and all are not playing the wmv00:12
ActionParsnipharushimo: you can use the binary if you want but it won't look too great and may get lost in the rest00:12
rhorstkoetterhi. does anyone have issues with nouveau video drivers while booting up the system? I get "video frequency too high (german translation)" while booting up and everything switches back to normal once lightdm is reached. using ubuntu 12.0400:13
dr3mrowerder, but new k00:13
reisiopiper69_: does 'rei' and then hitting TAB not work in chatzilla?00:13
dr3mrowerder, but newer kern means more hardware support !!00:13
harushimowhenever creating icons on 10.04, I was using the binaries00:13
harushimothank you00:13
piper69_reisio: opps , sorry i am just frustrated00:13
rhorstkoetteror even better, a solution. dmesg doesn't provide any error messages00:13

CoJaBoIt supports more of the really obscure codecs00:17
roastedQuestion - did I goof this up? I ran "sudo usermod -G motion jason". Did I successfully add the user jason to the group motion?00:17
ActionParsnippiper69_: Maverick is no longer supported00:18
piper69_CoJaBo: yes and its not working00:18
browserActionParsnip: startup apps?00:18
reisiopiper69_: windows media video 9 is relatively new and not 100% supported, your best bet would be to use a live snapshot from mplayer trunk00:18
ActionParsnipbrowser: yes, search dash00:18
reisioor ffmpeg (and convert them)00:18
quiescensroasted: adduser is probably safer00:18
ActionParsnippiper69_: I suggest you upgrade to a supported release, Maverick is now dead00:18
piper69_reisio: ?!00:18
reisiopiper69_: alternatively, tell your instructor you're already paying for the class and don't need to be forced to use Windows on top of it00:18
quiescensroasted: as far as I am aware, you probably removed jason from all groups other than motion as well00:19
roastedquiescens, dangit. Now I'm getting that jason isn't part of the sudoers file. Somehow I must have booted him out accidentally.00:19
roastedquiescens, lol, yep. unfortunately.00:19
roastedquiescens, dang I suck. I did this over SSH too...00:19
ActionParsniproasted: sudo usermod -a -G motion jason00:19
piper69_ActionParsnip: i don't like the new GUI00:19
KRomotoday, it took a really long time for ubuntu to boot...why?00:19
escottroasted, you have been on here enough to know never to use usermod -G without -a00:19
KRomosat on purple screen00:19
roastedescott, no kidding.00:19
ActionParsniproasted: you are adding the user to a supplementary group, your command wil make the user in ONLY the motion group00:19
escottKRomo, probably checking the filesystem00:19
ActionParsnippiper69_: you don't have to use it00:20
gvoKRomo: probably fscking the disk00:20
KRomooh ok00:20
reisiopiper69_: http://www.andrews-corner.org/mplayer.html00:20
KRomowhy would it do that?00:20
roastedescott, I wasn't thinking. Sitting out here on the deck with the puppy, he ran off just as I was typing the command... came back and facepalmed.00:20
ActionParsnipKRomo: what GPU do you use?00:20
quiescensroasted: i typically use: adduser (user) (group)00:20
gvoKRomo: cause it doest it periodically00:20
roastedquiescens, even if the user already exists?00:20
quiescensroasted: just so that forgetting an option doesn't go and obliterate their groups00:20
nesoguys ?pls help me,cant connect to internet (im using old HDD 12Gb now >win xp) wanna be on ubuntu pls help00:20
gvoKRomo: Just to be sure all is well.00:20

KRomonvidia gtx 46000:20
piper69_easy to just wipe ubuntu and install windows i guess00:20
escottKRomo, it will do so automatically every 20 reboots or so. it should be fairly quick with ext4 unless your disk is really large00:21
ActionParsnippiper69_: doesn't make maverick supported, you need to upgrade to at least Natty, which is EOL in October00:21
ActionParsnippiper69_: could install XFCE and use that, its very similar to Gnome 200:21
ActionParsnippiper69_: Gnome is not the only desktlop00:21
KRomook cool, it wasnt super long just longer than usual its a 90gb ssd sata 3 so it is not big and not slow00:21
nesoi install ubuntu 12.04 ,and ubuntu dont detect my 3G usb mode :(00:21
escottKRomo, you can hit the up arrow and see what it is doing but you probably got concerned when your 3 second boot became 6 seconds :)00:22
reisiopiper69_: or... go to a computer lab and convert them00:22
KRomoim so happy with ubuntu, my computer isnt obsolete by any means but i built it in 200700:22
ActionParsnippiper69_: you could even install KDE and use that00:22
reisiopiper69_: or, as already mentioned, tell your instructor you shouldn't be charged an additional $200 just to watch some videos for his class00:22
ActionParsnippiper69_: or LXDE..00:22
KRomoand its running great00:23
piper69_ActionParsnip: i will give that a try, do i just upgrade from synaptic00:23
roastedquiescens, now, remind me... if I boot up to root recovery shell... I can get jason back in sudoers. no? sudo usermod -a -G ...... jason....00:23
KRomo5 year old computer running pretty well00:23
roastedquiescens, would I have to edit sudoers or is there a group I can plug in?00:23
Jordan_U!eolupgrade | piper69_00:23
reisiopiper69_: and if you upload one of the files I can tell you whether svn mplayer supports it or not00:23
Jordan_U!eol | piper69_00:23
ubottupiper69_: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades00:23
ActionParsnippiper69_: could do, I'd just clean install with Precise then install gnome-panel :)00:23
reisioI could even convert them for you if there aren't too many00:23
quiescensroasted: the group you need is probably admin00:24
quiescensroasted: adm, sorry00:24
roastedquiescens, k... time to bust out a monitor and hook it up to the box.00:24
roastedoh? adm?00:24
nesoanyone lol00:24

roastedadmin rings a bell00:24
reisioneso: usb?00:25
quiescensroasted: to be sure, have a quick read of /etc/sudoers00:25
roastedadmin is at least listed in the gui and references to having sudo rights00:25
reisioneso: what does lsusb say about it?00:25
piper69_ohhh shooot that means i will loose all my class notes and ather files00:25
roastedquiescens, I even thought I set up a 2nd admin account on this box too. clearly I failed there as well. I normally have a 2nd admin account for backup purposes...00:25
piper69_i will be dead if anything happen to this laptop00:25
roastedquiescens, at any rate, brb. time to giv eit a go00:25
dr_willisbackups... use them. :)00:26

dsnydersHi all!  I put my machine to sleep for 60s using rtcwake, and when it awoke, I wound up with a blank screen:  No mouse, no cursor, nothing.  I am able to ssh into the box, so I think it has something to do with the graphics.  Any suggestions for getting it to wake up fully?00:37
brian__this is totaly new to me00:37
ActionParsnipbrian__: is the file system mounted read only?00:38
brian__No clue why it would be.00:38
brian__what's the CL check?00:38
ActionParsnipbrian__: if there are issues the default is to mount read only00:38

escottroasted_, yes. its the debian way and they evidently wanted to eliminate one cause for issues during conversion00:40

Zyclops1i'm trying to work out how to open an ssh connection to a local server.  I'm fairly novice at server administration stuff.   Locally i can ssh on port 22 to the server, but externally i can not.  On my router i have port 22 forwarded to the router.  I can ping the router. however when i ssh to it, it does not connect.  I've done /sudo/sbin/iptables —list-rules and it just says INPUT/FORWARD/OUTPUT are all set to acc00:42
ActionParsnipZyclops1: is it a home grade router?00:42
brian__ok, this is strange. It wont let me click any check boxes in settings - as if it double clicks every time I click or something00:42
Zyclops1tcp        0      0    *               LISTEN  << this is what netstat -an | grep "LISTEN" outputs00:43
Zyclops1ActionParsnip: yeah.. it's running DD-WRT00:43
ActionParsnipZyclops1: tried a reboot?00:43
escottZyclops1, On my router i have port 22 forwarded to the router <<< i assume you meant "computer"00:43
Zyclops1ah yeah sorry00:43
Zyclops1yep and it's forwarded to the correct internal IP address00:43
roasted_Would it be easier (even possible) to create a new administrator user, then add jason back to the admin group? Everything I'm trying on Google isn't working.00:43
Zyclops1ActionParsnip: nah i haven't.. of the router or the server? note i can ssh locally into the server00:44
escottZyclops1, you can run ssh -vvvv and see if it says anything about the connection, but i would double check the router00:44
ActionParsniproasted_: you could, just make new and add it to the admin group00:44
quiescensroasted_: did sudo group not work?00:44
ActionParsnipZyclops1: the router00:44
Zyclops1escott: ok thanks00:44
roasted_quiescens: sudo usermod -a -G sudo jason...... no00:44
ActionParsnipZyclops1: it may need to happen to get the WAN side sorted00:44
Zyclops1ActionParsnip: awesome i'll try that.. sorry co-workers :)00:44
ActionParsniproasted_: thats right00:44
Zyclops1i can forward it to my local computer.. on port 8000:44
roasted_ActionParsnip: didn't work00:44
roasted_ActionParsnip: cannot lock /etc/passwd' try again later00:45
Zyclops1test that port forwarding is actually working at all00:45
ActionParsniproasted_: is the file system read only?00:45
roasted_ActionParsnip: I have no idea. I'm in root recovery.00:45
ActionParsniproasted_: run:  mount00:45
KRomosudo hdparm -I /dev/sda | grep -i speed00:45
escottroasted_, assuming it is "mount -o remount,rw /00:46
roasted_ActionParsnip: /dev/sda2 on / type ext4  (rw,erroprs=remount-ro)00:46
KRomoconfirmed that sata 3 is working00:46
escottKRomo, i would take those hdparm results with a grain of salt it really just testing the bus00:46
ActionParsnipZyclops1: then edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and change the port it runs there :)00:46
roasted_escott: er, I think that worked?00:46
KRomoescott:i just want to be sure that my ssd is getting proper speed00:46
escottroasted_, thats mounted rw then. still getting the /etc/passwd error00:46
roasted_escott: no, it came back fine.00:46
roasted_escott: rebooting already.00:46
escottKRomo, i saw your message come though just as i hit enter :)00:47
ActionParsnipKRomo: isn't -I just info?00:47
quiescensroasted_: probably delete /etc/passwd.lock00:47
roasted_escott: back in gui, works great.00:47
ActionParsnipKRomo: sudo hdparm -tT /dev/sda    will actualy test read/writes00:47
roasted_quiescens: even though it's working?00:47

Zyclops1ActionParsnip: as a security measure?00:48
ShinobiCan anyone assist with: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1015692/00:49
ActionParsnipZyclops1: no, if you can forward to port 80, you may as well use it00:49

escottivorybishop, if you installed from a 64bit livecd ou would have a 64bit kernel and pae would not be an option.00:58
ivorybishopbut it installed a generic kernel00:58

I use the Alt "tap" and it says "type your command", so I'd think whatever I type would execute as a shell command, (such as "xcalc" to open the calculator that is not in a menu), but it doesn't do it.... any idea how to get this to work? I need an easy access to programs by name, not just icons and not just having a full terminal open01:04

roastedQuestion - anybody use Motion here? I'm having some trouble understanding it. There seems to be two locations to set the startup daemon... One is for automatic startup, the other is for background startup (so it releases the terminal from needing to be present to run). I can't seem to have both running at once, which... I want... I want it to auto start + I want it to have the capability to shut off and manually start background01:34

ubottujamiejackson: To start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode01:36
roastedDr_Willis, speaking of which, is /etc/init.d services still supported? I don't think motion uses sudo service...01:36
ivorybishopescott: ok, checked the color coding and i think i got them in the right slots. ran dmicode again: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1015733/ still showing 3.2 in system monitor :(01:36
ivorybishopplease advise01:36
Dr_Willisroasted:  if you look - the init.d scripts are most likely links to upstart scripts. :) i dont mess with services much.01:36
ActionParsnipjamiejackson: or hold shift at boot and select recovery mode then select root01:37
escottivorybishop, lets take a look at dmesg then01:37
roastedDr_Willis, ahh I forgot. The reason I don't use /etc/init.d/motion start is because the second it detects motion, the entire service shuts itself off....01:37
KRomo./configure --prefix=/usr01:38
KRomoi get configure not found01:38
escottivorybishop, supposedly it would still work even if it wasnt paired it just wouldnt be dual channel.01:38
KRomowhat am i doing wrong?01:38
dsnydersActionParsnip, I've been going through the commands on the website regarding the nvidia wake from suspend/hibernate.  It says to add some lines to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.  Should that be blacklist.conf, because there is no file called blacklist01:38
jamiejacksonDr_Willis: ActionParsnip thx. will try text to the kernel line first01:38
escottivorybishop, so if we get things working you should make sure that your dimms are matching to any color coding on the board itself01:38

roastedapplebloom, little suggestion to show you how meaningless default applications can be... I saved a long command in a google doc... a super long one... sudo apt-get install gimp inkscape clementine vlc chromium-browser etc. I run it after each new install... in 1 command I get a ton of aps. :)01:42
applebloomDr_Willis, but you have to be online to do that01:42
ActionParsnipdsnyders: you can make your own file if you want to keep your extra settings seperate, it doesn't have to go in blacklist.conf01:42
Dr_Willisapplebloom:  so?01:42
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VideoDriverHowto01:42

applebloomit's just a suggestion to improve the casual interface01:43
ActionParsnipapplebloom: if you have a realmedia file in windows, no web access and no realplayer installed you are in the same boat01:43
Dr_WillisYou asked why its not included.. because the default player can handle them01:43
dsnydersActionParsnip, Thanks for the pointer.  I'll rename the file with a .conf "extension".01:43

VMERSINTODr_Willis : was C++ implented in any of the game systems01:47
ActionParsnipVMERSINTO: how is that ubuntu related?01:47
roastedDr_Willis, basically in /etc/default/motion there's an entry to enable the auto start daemon. If I enable this, and in startup apps add "motion", it runs fine. BUT, once I enable the background daemon in /etc/motion/motion.conf, it WILL NOT auto start.01:47
reisiomicrom: enabled by default, IIRC01:48
ivorybishopescott: i saw somewhere that a config file could be modified to correct the issue, but that is a little beyond my skills01:48
VMERSINTOActionParsnip : I develop using ubuntu01:48
roastedDr_Willis, the background daemon allows me to kill it (killall motion) and then type motion again in terminal... it'll begin running and release the terminal so I can close the terminal window and it runs as a daemon in the background.01:48
escottivorybishop, a kernel config file?01:48
micromreisio: after a fresh install, it's not there...01:48
roastedDr_Willis, I want both... but it doesn't seem to work. If I enable the convenience of starting/stopping it via background mode, it refuses to auto start.01:48
roastedDr_Willis, but, I want auto start so if I reboot the server it starts.. but then it almost forces me to reboot each time I make a motion change.01:49
ivorybishopi am not sure, i was just shotgunning a search thru duckduckgo and it shows a lot of stuff01:49
escottivorybishop, a bios update might be in order01:49
ivorybishopi may just have to live with this since i am not a linux pro01:49
escottivorybishop, its also possible the board just doesnt support more than 4GB01:49
ivorybishopi think the bios is as up to date as it will get. its a dell01:50
ivorybishopand an older one at that01:50
escottivorybishop, boards can have their own random limits that are distinct from the number of slots you can fill, although usually its of the form "no DIMM bigger than X"01:50
jamiejacksonDr_Willis: you had the bot tell me about the "text" option in the grub menu. where do i put it? i'm not clear on which is the "kernel" line. there are maybe 10 lines in there01:50
ivorybishopi see01:50
ivorybishopwell, thank you for your patience and your help, its very appreciated01:51
Dr_Willisjamiejackson:  ssame line with the 'quiet splash'' option..01:51
ivorybishopit was worth a shot anyway01:51

nydelUberschallSamsar: good luck. also, next time you're doing an upgrade, make sure everything is killed. that will increase the likeliness of a clean upgrade.05:25
UberschallSamsari was 99% sure everything was but i did an alt-tab to make sure and IMO that shouldn't kill the freaking install window.  that's a bug.05:25
nydelUberschallSamsar: it's not your fault, but linux can be fragile, just as any OS can - we have to be very careful when upgrading. i've killed many a system because i just HAD to check my email while upgrading.05:25

lolcatCan't I start banshee, then burn and then boot?09:14
lolcatjust swap the livecd with the blank one09:14
haneefmubarakWhat exactly are you trying to do and why?09:14
adhownyou can't do it09:14
lolcatI want a livecd09:14
lolcatSo I can install linux09:15

lolcatDoes aptosid have that?09:16
dr3mrohello , how to add more wallpapers to ubuntu appearance dialog 12.04 ?09:16
llutz_lolcat: idk, grml has, sysrescuecd should have too09:16
WhereIsMySpoondependency hell <_>09:17
llutz_lolcat: another way would be using debootstrap to install from running live-cd. wiki/forums should have tutorials on it09:19
WhereIsMySpoonadhown, im trying to now install zlib, but when i run cmake on the gemrb source, it says i need to install zlib library and headers, but i have all the zlib related packages installed09:20
llutz_WhereIsMySpoon: the -dev packages you need09:20
WhereIsMySpoonzlib1g, zlibc, zlib1g-dbg, zlib1g-dev, zlib-bin, zlib-gst09:20
WhereIsMySpoongot all them09:20
lolcatllutz_: I want another distro than the one I have09:20
WhereIsMySpoonllutz_, thats all the ones i need right?09:21
llutz_lolcat: a debian-based one? look at debootstrap09:21
lolcatllutz_: No, I want to change to exherbo09:22
WhereIsMySpoonllutz_, it says im missing zlib_library09:22
adhownWhereIsMySpoon, try to aptitude search zlib ..09:22
WhereIsMySpoonadhown, im using apt09:23
WhereIsMySpoonnot aptitude09:23
WhereIsMySpoonadhown, i used the package manager to search zlib09:23
llutz_WhereIsMySpoon: apt-cache search    package then09:23
WhereIsMySpoonllutz_, thats a lot of packages09:24
llutz_WhereIsMySpoon: i just showed you the alternative to aptitude, i didn't say its usefull for your specific problem09:26
pbx2can't start firefox in Lubuntu?09:27
llutz_WhereIsMySpoon: i haven't followed your issue before, but didn't you use a repo that holds the package you want to install? use apt-get build-dep packagename     to pull the needed dev-packages09:27
fidel_pbx2: whats the error message?09:27
pbx2file not found!09:28
fidel_pbx2: what file09:28
pbx2but there is folder firefox in home dir09:28
zxiestHello everybody :-)09:28
pbx2and there firefox inside that09:28
fidel_pbx2: is firefox installed in the first place?09:28
ikoniahow do you expect to start firefox if it's not installed ?09:28
pbx2how do I install it?09:29
ikoniapbx2: open the package manager, search for it and click install09:29
zxiestI have a directory with chmod 774 but when I "touch foo" in it, I get a file with other permissions. Is there a way for files created in a dir to inherit the parent's permissions?09:29
pbx2but that is Ubunutu version of firefox09:29
pbx2I want the official version09:29
ikoniapbx2: correct09:29
llutz_zxiest: yuo need to define acl for this09:29
ikoniapbx2: the ubuntu version is the official version09:29
WhereIsMySpoonllutz_, when i do that it says unable to find source package for gemrb09:29
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, if it has the name Mozilla Firefox, then it is official09:30
zxiestllutz_ I see... Thanks, will look into that :-)09:30
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, if it has had patches that aren't approved by Mozilla it can't be called Mozilla Firefox09:30
pbx2is it possible to install Official version from .tar.bz2 file?09:30
Onixswhen recovering deleted folders with subfolders, recovering only thr root folder will also recover the whole sub folder of it ?09:30
ikoniapbx2: why do you want that ?09:30
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, that isn't any more official than the one Ubuntu includes, and sure it is, just unpack it anywhere and run the firefox file in it09:30
pbx2Ok fine lets I want to install Firefox Nightly09:30
ikoniapbx2: why ?09:30
llutz_WhereIsMySpoon: but you have defined "deb-src blahblah"  for that repo in your sources.list?09:30
ikoniapbx2: what's wrong with the version ubuntu builds and supplies for you and supports09:31
WhereIsMySpoonllutz_, no, only a deb09:31
pbx2I don't like ubuntu builds09:31
ikoniapbx2: why ?09:31
pbx2I want a clean version for my browser09:31
ikoniapbx2: what is the problem09:31
ikoniapbx2: what is unclean about the ubuntu build09:31
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, erm if you run the official version it still loads the Ubuntu modifications09:31
ikoniapbx2: what is the actual problem with the ubuntu build09:32
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, as they are plugins/extensions09:32
pbx2Lubuntu doesn't include Firefox09:32
ikoniapbx2: so install it from the ubuntu repo09:32
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, and?  apt-get install firefox?09:32
pbx2so that means I can get a clean version if I don't touch ubuntu repo09:32
ikoniapbx2: no it doesn't09:32
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, you're in the Ubuntu repo when you use Lubuntu09:33
ikoniapbx2: please explain what is wrong with using the ubuntu package ?09:33
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, to run the Mozilla tarball:  Extract and run firefox.sh included09:33
pbx2WarOfTheNerd, thanks09:34
pbx2will try that09:34
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, there is no benefit to doing that though, in fact, it's pretty much moronic :|09:34
ring0pbx2, just use the firefox package. this way you get security fixes and program updates. if you don't, you always have to do it manually09:34
WarOfTheNerdring0, not true09:35
WarOfTheNerdring0, when you install to your user area it auto updates and gives security fixes on its own09:35
ring0WarOfTheNerd, it updates itself?09:35
WarOfTheNerdring0, yes09:35
ring0WarOfTheNerd, ok, but only if you install per user not system-wide09:36
WarOfTheNerdring0, if you have the privileges to edit the files, it will update itself, this is also true on Windows XP with the official builds09:36
xjiujiuI got a error message "mountall: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version 'GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by /lib/libpllibply.so.2.14" when I upgrade my ubuntu from 11.10 to 12.04..09:36
xjiujiuum ...Anyone knows how to fix that problem?09:36
WarOfTheNerdring0, the tarball can't tell the difference, so if you make a group called say firefox and chmod 775 after making it system-wide.. it will still update09:37
ring0WarOfTheNerd, how nasty :)09:37
WarOfTheNerdring0, it's clean, firefox was made to be installed per-user09:37
WarOfTheNerdring0, it's distros which hack it to be otherwise09:37
WarOfTheNerdif you're a limited user on Windows, it will even install per-user09:38
ring0WarOfTheNerd, i guess nobody in here cares about windows ;)09:38
WarOfTheNerdwell yeah >_>09:38
WarOfTheNerdbut then no-one in here should care for using official tarballs either09:38
WarOfTheNerdunless they're gonna protest Ubuntu's stupid decision not to use an ESR build for an LTS09:39
WarOfTheNerdESR is the Enterprise Stable Release09:39
dr--willisits more buzzword compliant09:39
WarOfTheNerdit has years of support rather than months09:39
WarOfTheNerdconsider it to be Firefox LTS09:40

=== haneefmubarak is now known as HaneefMubarak
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, I use MATE for that reason09:40
ring0WarOfTheNerd, exactly, nobody should care for tarballs in here09:40
dr--willisi protest your protesting.09:40
David_lamGood morning all09:41
WarOfTheNerdring0, indeed.  I might just build a Firefox ESR package today if I get time09:41
pbx2there is firefox and firefox-bin09:41
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, firefox09:41
WarOfTheNerdfirefox IIRC is a wrapper that lets you re-execute if firefox is already open to make a new window09:42
WarOfTheNerdso you should always use that09:42
pbx2I hope I can paste here 2 lines :)09:42
pbx2pbx@pbx-7678:~/Downloads/firefox$ sudo sh ./firefox09:42
pbx2./firefox: 1: ./firefox: Syntax error: "(" unexpected09:42
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, why sudo?09:42
ikoniapbx2: you need to contact mozilla if there is a problem with their binary install09:42
llutz_pbx2: don't use sudo, don't use sh ....09:42
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, ./firefox is all you need09:43
llutz_pbx2: and, don't use tarballs and ask for support here09:43
pbx2then I get this: bash: ./firefox: No such file or directory09:43
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, chmod 755 ./firefox09:43
dr--willispbx2:  check your directory you are in ;)09:43
WarOfTheNerdthen try ./firefox09:43
nguyenduyis there any one who knows Github09:44
llutz_pbx2: you try to run 32bit firefox on 64bit system or vice versa?09:44
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, also make sure you're in the right directory as dr--willis points out09:44
WarOfTheNerdllutz, 64-bit on 32-bit not doable xD09:44
pbx2I am in the right directory, see my 2 lines above09:44
dr--willisi thought firefox extacted to a firefox-some0versionnumber09:44
llutz_WarOfTheNerd: no shit sherlock09:44
pbx2I m using 64 bit distro09:45
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, chmod 755 firefox && ./firefox09:45
llutz_pbx2: and the firefox you use is 32bit? you lack ia32libs09:45
WarOfTheNerdthere's only a 32-bit official firefox09:45
WarOfTheNerdand he's being silly, he should use the package rather than using the crippled official build09:45
ring0pbx2, the guys in #firefox are sure happy to support their binary install09:46
pbx2ia32libs gonna check synaptic if I am missing that09:46
WarOfTheNerdring0, hah!  Even they aren't really... they prefer people to use the supported version for their OS09:46
WarOfTheNerdring0, the only acceptable time would be if someone used Debian or another distro not permitted to build as Mozilla Firefox09:46

pbx2ikonia, wait a second? why is my Firefox build vulnerable? vs. the one that is Ubuntu's rep?10:06
neureWarOfTheNerd, thats the thing, i think installing guest additions switched my desktop to use unity 2d10:06
neureand i think it wasnt before10:07
dr--willispbx2:  no apparmour porfile for one..10:07
neurehow can i switch back to full unity or whatever it is called?10:07
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, it is 32-bit which gives you less protection in terms of randomising memory locations10:07
WhereIsMySpoonikonia, have you never built anything from source?10:07
ikoniapbx2: I'm not getting into this discussion, I've advised you to use the ubuntu packaged version 3 times and you insist it's got backdoors with no basis or knowledge or experience,10:07
ikoniaWhereIsMySpoon: yes10:07
ikoniaWhereIsMySpoon: I have built things from source many times10:07
WhereIsMySpoonikonia, then wahts the problem10:07
pbx2what is this apparmour profile?10:07
ikoniaWhereIsMySpoon: well, I do it in a controlled manner and not blindly10:08
pbx2I was joking regarding the backdoor...I am sure someone went over the source code right ? :)10:08
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, AppArmour (Application Armour) is a system which protects you from malware and system compromise by restricting the privileges of applications10:08
WhereIsMySpoonikonia, controlled == ?10:08
ikoniapbx2: give me a valid reason why you do not want to use the ubuntu packaged firefox10:08
Onixsoh damn… just lost a 500gb of data :(10:08
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, basically, it says firefox can only do certain things and anything outside of those approved things is denied10:09
ikoniaWhereIsMySpoon: make sure it doesn't conflict with any dependencies of the existing system, isolate where possible away from existing packages, etc, make sure I'm building the right thing for the right reason10:09
pbx2you mean sandboxing tech.10:09
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, it's not a sandbox, it's better than a sandbox10:09
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, it's a white-list based mandatory access control system10:10
zav22i just randomly poked my head in to see what was happening in here and this guy trying to install firefox has kept me here for like an hour just about peeing my pants laughing. *steps back into the shadows*10:10
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, look at this:  http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=XxqHKY5F10:11
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, this is an apparmor profile10:11
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, it stops firefox writing to anywhere outside where it is expected to write for normal operation10:12
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, for example it can write to Downloads but not to Documents when it's enabled10:13
t432The command "update-alternatives --config java"  confirms jdk7 but "Ant" program points to jdk6 -  message" Unable to locate tools.jar. Expected to find it in /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-i386/lib/tools.jar" ... was working fine before reboot10:13

ubottupbx2: 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.10:14
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, it has one built-in but it's not enabled by default as it doesn't need to be10:15
pbx2well I guess I need to enable mine now10:15
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, the only systems that need a firewall by default are Solaris and Windows10:15
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, no you don't need to unless you're running stuff that's massively insecure10:16
Chuck_Norrispbx2: why so paranoic? you know what? Linux !=windows10:16
ikoniaChuck_Norris: windows is not insecure, please don't miss-lead users10:16
WarOfTheNerdpbx2, if you've installed Samba for example you might want it, but the default Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Lubuntu install doesn't benefit from a firewall10:16
ikoniathe OS you use is as secure as you make it10:16
WarOfTheNerdikonia, by default it's insecure10:16
ikoniano, I'm sorry, it's not10:17
WarOfTheNerdikonia, yes it is.  Did you know that ISPs used to block ports 135-139 and port 445 because by default you could remote Windows 2000?10:17
ikoniaso ?10:17
WarOfTheNerdikonia, as in there was no security on its remote admin by default by design10:17
ikoniaWarOfTheNerd: I'm not interested in this stuff10:17
ikoniajoin ##windows if you want to debate it10:18
WarOfTheNerdikonia, so it's fair to say Windows is insecure by default10:18
WarOfTheNerd(because it is_10:18
ikoniaWarOfTheNerd: I'm sorry but it's not, it's as secure as you make it10:18
krababbelikonia: unfortunately they lowered UAC by one to be default10:18
WarOfTheNerdikonia, yes, but by default it is insecure10:18
pbx2so now my firefox build is vulnerable to buffer overflow exploits...because I built it from the tar10:18
ikoniaWarOfTheNerd: join ##windows if you want to debate it, I'm not interestd10:18
ikoniapbx2: why are you regusing to use the ubuntu package ?10:18
ikoniathis is getting tedious, you either need to pick the firefox build and take responsability yourself, or pick the ubuntu package and allow ubuntu to support you10:19
WarOfTheNerdikonia, then why disagree with something which is known fact? :|10:19
ikoniaWarOfTheNerd: because it's not10:19
Chuck_Norrisikonia: if windows doesnt use an AV what's?10:20
ikoniaChuck_Norris: I'm sorry, that doesn't make any sense, and I'm not interested in a windows discussion in this channel10:20
WarOfTheNerdChuck_Norris, remember no-one in this channel has every touched IIS with default permissions and gotten owned in minutes, because we're all smart enough to use something that has good default permissions xD10:22
ikoniaWarOfTheNerd: enough10:23
joelioIs there a way to make the oem config skip the user creation question? I don't need that bit10:24
Chuck_NorrisWarOfTheNerd: xD IIS a couple of day a saw how to DOS an IIS server last version and suddenly BSOD10:25
WarOfTheNerdjoelio, do you mean when you're installing?10:25
bazhang!ot | Chuck_Norris10:25
ubottuChuck_Norris: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!10:25
WarOfTheNerdjoelio, if so that user gets erased post-install10:25
icerootChuck_Norris: can you stop that please? we are not interested in such discussions here10:25
joelioWarOfTheNerd: Yes, I'm creating a supported enviroment for users at $WORK. This entails ubuntu 12.04, kerberos (with cached credentials for laptops) and lots of puppet10:26
joelioI therefore don't need a local user account10:26
Chuck_Norrisok, i'll stop it =P this is the CVE MS12-020 -.-10:26
WarOfTheNerdjoelio, I could be wrong but I think the OEM mode is for home-user shipping, not for enterprise10:26
t432Problem Solved by editing .bashrc file10:27
WarOfTheNerdjoelio, at work, the best way is to customise an install and then image it across10:27
joelioWarOfTheNerd: Yea, but it's a handy tool to allow configuration of the system10:27
joelioWarOfTheNerd: No,  I already have my PXE booting, automated environment.10:27
joelioThere's different users that are difficult to manage programatically10:27
joeliotherefore I needa  simple post install script that runs on first boot10:28
joeliothe user just sets their keyboard/language10:28
joelioI can write another gui to do this, just trying to save time10:28
WarOfTheNerdmight need to hack on it a bit in that case10:28
kradhi.  does anyone know of a SSL Proxy server?10:28
joelioWarOfTheNerd: Yea, that's what I'm thinking10:28
ikoniakrad: please don't ask for that in here10:28
rumanplease tell me any tool for converting my outlook mail to thunderbird10:29
kradikonia, i want to set up my own ssl proxy server10:29
kradikonia, not asking for a public one10:29
WarOfTheNerdikonia, why not?  it's for his own Ubuntu install10:29
ikoniajoelio: can you not create a standard user and then remove it as part of the post-install10:29
kradsquid doesnt work for me so far .. i want to try other programs10:29
ikoniaWarOfTheNerd: because I thought he was asking for a public one10:29
joelioikonia: It's not the isssue... the issue is the oem-config asking to create a user10:29
ikoniakrad: squid does work fine as an SSL proxy10:29
ikoniajoelio: I see10:30
joeliothe user doesn't need an account as they have one in kerberos10:30
kradikonia, nope ..10:30
kradikonia, wasted losts of time trying to set it up10:30

Sazpaimon_I cooked this up to reinstall every package in my system, does it look right? dpkg --get-selections | egrep -v deinstall | awk '{print $1}' |tr '\n' ' ' |xargs apt-get install --reinstall -y --force-yes12:36
Sazpaimon_i also had to add repositories for lucid, maverick, natty, and oneiric to my sources.list because there were a few packages leftover from those distros that apt couldn't find in precise12:37

truepurpleAnother issue, I need flash version 11.2 or latter to run a game, but firefox has only 11.1, and says it is up to date, chrome has a even earlier version of flash installed in it. also chrome is a bit behind in version numbers itself. Now alot of this takes me to a adobe download page, but there are 3 different download options and I got no clue how to install any of em after downloading16:15
ikoniatruepurple: there is normally a "readme" in the tar file16:16
=== root is now known as Guest94566
LoboXsacarlson ok we have progress the eth0 interface have the static ip from the interfaces file >:)16:16
ikoniatruepurple: you basically move the library into the plugins directory in your firefox directory in your home dir and restart firefox16:16
LoboXthat happen when i stoped the network-manager like you said16:16

reisioHarris: you can have the same cosmetic name16:24
truepurpleikonia, I probably did that to get flash initially, and I assume update/upgrade would keep it updated16:24

LoboXis blank no ip info16:27
jobinarhow do i get that LoboX ?16:27
mneptoktruepurple: if you installed the packages i mention, you have a 32 bit Flash plugin running with a wrapper for 64. it's ugly.16:27
LoboXif its by dhcp is auto16:27
mneptoktruepurple: my suggestion gets you the 64 bit native plugin16:27

truepurplemneptok, it is ok for my browser to be up while this is happening, right?16:38
mneptoktruepurple: granted, in the case of Flash, which is dead on Linux, updates will be few. but hopefully security problems will be fixed.16:38
mneptoktruepurple: sure, but the broswer may not "see" the plugin until it is closed and restarted.16:38
truepurpleHow is flash dead on linux?16:39

cristian_cHow can I enable the pinch gesture on my touchpad with ubuntu?16:40
killermy Speakers are working ok...but no sound in headphones16:41

mneptoktruepurple: yes.16:42
Dr_willisjamescarr,  upstart scripts are in /etc/init/ the old sysv ones are in the init.d and other rc# dirs16:42
NastyNazwhats the name of the network security/penetration testing linux distro?16:42
jamescarrDr_willis, regardless, whats the "right" way to disable em?16:43
Dr_willisjamescarr,  for an upstart service you could rename its /etc/init/servicename.conf to be servicename.dontrun  or edit its contents and tell it to not load16:43
cristian_cbut I don't understand what set-prop is related to the pinch16:43
mneptokNastyNaz: not really an Ubuntu support question. thus offtopic.16:43
cristian_cAny ideas?16:43
jamescarrDr_willis, but I still want it to run if I call "service foo start"16:43
Dr_willisfor sysv - you nromally remove the LINK in the rc#  that you want them disabled.16:43
truepurplemneptok, I closed and restarted chrome, but it still says my version isn't 11.2 or latter, do I need to close all browsers in order for the change to be seen, or just the browsers in question?16:43
mneptokNastyNaz: but i'm pretty sure Wolfram Alpha could parse that natural language question with a simple CTL-C CTL-V16:43
Dr_willisjamescarr,  never really noticed.  you may need to edit the .conf file if thats what you want to do16:44
jamescarrDr_willis, thanks. Google led me to the chkconfig tool16:44
jamescarrgonna check it o ut16:44
mneptoktruepurple: look in your home directory for a .mozille folder. look in it, and see if there's a "Plugins" folder. move any Flash version out of that folder.16:45

`prixonI use ubuntu 12.04 with kernel 3.4.0 and get "-1" for "cat /sys/module/i915/parameters/i915_enable_rc6". can someone explain what that means? I was under the impression that i915 is enabled in 12.0416:46
truepurplemneptok, move it where?16:47
mneptoktruepurple: anywhere but where it is. :)16:47
truepurplemneptok, also the libflashplayer.so file?16:47
Pierreb do ubuntu come with a built in rdp server?16:47
mneptoktruepurple: yes, that is the actual plugin. and it's NOT the one you just got from the repositories.16:47
truepurplemneptok, then what is flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz?16:48
mneptoktruepurple: it's something you installed manually, it's an older version, and it is overriding the more recent plugin Adobe sent you from the Partner repo.16:48
truepurplemneptok, so I can safely delete these files?16:48
mneptoktruepurple: the tar.gz is the compressed plugin you got off the web.16:48
mneptoktruepurple: sure, you can delete them16:49
mneptoktruepurple: restart Chrome. then paste this into Chrome's addressbar:  chrome://plugins16:49
truepurpleah, it worked! I didnt even need to restart16:49
mneptoktruepurple: you now have the 64-bit native 11.2 plugin direct from Adobe.16:50

escott`prixon, honestly nobody in this channel is going to know what the particular values of a /sys/module parameter are going to mean. did you search online for this? you might try specifying site:kernel.org16:50
mneptoktruepurple: should be done via repos. the Chrome .deb installer adds stuff so Google's repos keep you updated.16:51
truepurplemneptok, you lost me, what do I need to do?16:51
mneptoktruepurple: nothing :)16:51

It's as if either the middle button or the scroll wheel are stuck active -- any window I move over is brought to the front, any select box (or tab set) I hover on goes straight to the last item, etc. It doesn't seem to be the mouse itself, it happens with every mouse I have.16:54

reisiotruepurple: with your package manager16:57
mneptoktruepurple: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade16:57

BlouBlouit upgrades your ubuntu version16:58
`prixonhmmm -1 = (use per-chip default) (int). thanks!16:58
mneptoktruepurple: pulls in new packages that relate to the very base of the release. like new kernels.16:58
`prixoncan you explain what that means btw?16:58
mneptokBlouBlou: it does not move between Ubuntu releases. "dist-upgrade" will not move an 11.10 install to 12.04.16:58
truepurplemneptok, would it update my linux version?16:59
mneptoktruepurple: if by "linux" you mean "the kernel," then yes. if you mean "Ubuntu," then no.17:00

truepurpleoh I see where you answer that17:01
mneptoktruepurple: yes.17:02
escott`prixon, that you would presumably have to check the source to see what the default is. agreed that its not to helpful to see a -1 there, but thats what it means17:02
reisioalexfu: no freedesktop .desktop file would be my guess17:02

truepurplemneptok, Why is that a separate command? and I thought ubuntu was suppose to update all these automatically without me needing to do stuff, so then why do I need to run 3 different command to update everything, and even then have it not be enough?17:03
truepurplesometimes not enough17:03
LoboXit boot again17:04
LoboXi will unistall17:04
mneptoktruepurple: "update" gets you the list of new packages available. without a list of what's changed, how would the system work? "upgrade" gets you the newest packages, except for kernels and such that are going to affect how the machine actually boots and speak to hardware. "dist-upgrade" does that last part.17:04

reisioBrustofski-Fan: uhuh...17:11
reisioBrustofski-Fan: I assume pulseaudio's mixer/prefs will do the same thing17:12
judgenAny idea why skype ignores the gtk2 theme (it worked in debian when gnome2.30 was installed) I am guessing it is using gtk3 in ubuntu for themes.17:12
=== eid is now known as eid_
Brustofski-Fanreisio, kinda gives the bose speakers effects17:12
manzamannaubottu ok thanks17:12
reisioBrustofski-Fan: is not any special technology AFAIK, just a brand17:12

xanguajudgen: did you set on skype preferences to use the current Desktop theme¿¿17:12
Brustofski-Fanreisio, how do i access pulseaudio's mixer/prefs17:13
reisioBrustofski-Fan: ask the channel, don't use it myself17:13

BarbariandudeHi guys! Due to a series of unfortunate events, I'm now forced to use a xubuntu live USB as my primary operating system, booting friends/family computers into it when I need to do some work. How do I password protect a live, persistent USB on startup?17:14
Penguincscwhat do you need nckrazze17:14

Penguincscnckrazze: te more people see your question - the more help you get ;-)17:16
nckrazzei am trying to do sudo apt-get update, but i get "could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (13: permission denied)17:16
BarbariandudePenguincsc: Will this also work on application memory, such as thunderbird or pidgin login?17:16
pepeereisio, that will record a linux desktop... I need to record a remote vnc/rdp session from a vbox vm17:16
Harrishow do i link my ubuntu account to my vista account17:16
Penguincscnckrazze: try sudo apt-get update17:16
xanguanckrazze: does you used has administrative/sudo privileges¿17:17
PenguincscBarbariandude: I am not sure, but you could create a ramdisk17:17

nckrazzeand i made account17:18
Harris`how do i link my ubuntu account to my vista account17:18
PenguincscBarbariandude: check out Backtrack Linux on google17:18
OerHeksharris Ubuntu and vista accounts don't mix17:18
PenguincscBarbariandude: A USB pendrive isn't a good idea for such a thing - try an external HDD17:18
Penguincscnckrazze: do you have more than one user account?17:19
nckrazzexangua: do you know?17:19
nckrazzeno i do not penguin17:19

nckrazzei did that penguin, i get the message i said17:20
Harrishow do i make a hidden user account in ubuntu17:20
BarbariandudePenguincsc: Ok. Is there any way (other than Puppy Linux which is unusable due to some Broadcom STA driver issues) to get a portable OS that is password-protected? I don't need it to be secure against crypto-analysis, I just need to be confident tech-illiterate people can't enter-enter-access messenger17:20
Harrishow do i make a hidden user account in ubuntu17:21
SafariMonkeyHarris: was that your attempt at a hidden IRC account?17:21
Penguincscnckrazze: so it means another installation program (like the Software Center)is open in the background17:21
nckrazzeyou sure penguin, i;ll check it out, gimma 1 sec17:21
chuWhat do you mean by "hidden" Harris? Just not visible at the login screen?17:21
Harrisyes chu17:21
HarrisSafariMonkey,  i dont know what you are talking about17:21
nckrazzehow do you open the ubuntu alternative for the windows task manager?17:21
pozzzHi. trying to install Joomla 254 locally on LAMP, Kubuntu 12.04. The thing is I've found some old screeshots with Step1 and a list of TICKED/GREEN directories that shoud be writable. Now you do not get that. Can I just go ahead with the installation without doing the chown and chmod commands???17:22
SafariMonkeyHarris: you left the room immediately after posting. sorry, it's my bad sense of humor.17:22
OerHeksnckrazze, open terminal: top  ( better install Htop)17:22
nckrazzewhat oer? terminal top?17:22
PenguincscBarbariandude: in that case, just set it to lock the screen. If you press ALT-CTRL-L before you leave the machine unattended, it will lock immediately17:22
HarrisSafariMonkey,  my computer froze17:23
Harrischu,  what do i do to make it17:23
chuUunfortunately Harris, things don't look too good.17:23
OerHeksnckrazze, yes, in terminal: top17:23
nckrazzei still cant get it penguin, its not working. i have nothing else open17:23
Penguincscnckrazze: ALT-Shift-Esc17:23

chuHarris: I don't know. Read the links I gave you.17:25
BarbariandudePenguincsc: There is such a distro, it is Puppy linux. As I said, as of the latest version it doesn't support the Broadcom network card in 2 of the machines I'm using. I cannot install as the machines belong to other people, they are allowing me use as long as I don't touch the hard drives17:26

MaynardWatersescott: im concerned about killing this "applying changes" I dont want to f up my kernel17:41
escottMaynardWaters, so what is the exact text of the message?17:41
mr0wlwhat's the deal with Skype in Linux?17:42
pepeehmm I got some dependencies problem: The following packages have unmet dependencies:   librtmp-dev : Depends: librtmp0 (= 2.4~20110711.gitc28f1bab-1) but 2.4~20110711.gitc28f1bab-1ubuntu0~ppa1~oneiric1 is to be installed17:42
MaynardWaters"error: cannoc read from '/dev/sdc'"17:43
chrometigercan anyone help me figure out why google earth wont work for me and why I cannot log into gnome shell?   I keep getting reverted to fallback mode17:43
escottmr0wl, a straight flush. what do you mean by deal?17:43
MaynardWatersand it just keep printing that in the details box17:43
escottMaynardWaters, and you are seeing this when?17:43
MaynardWatersright now17:43
Penguincscchrometiger: maybe a graphics card driver issue?17:43
escottMaynardWaters, obviously you are seeing it right now, but what command did you run that is causing this17:43
shurikrulikhi men, give peace of advice pls.. How edit txt file which is in /etc(root rights) from terminal.17:44
escottchrometiger, you probably dont have a glx layer running. what kind of graphics card?17:44
chrometigerPenguinsc: as far as I can see and others helped me earlier  it seems my graphics drivers are installed right17:44
escottshurikrulik, gksudo gedit (or any other editor you want to use)17:44
MaynardWatersi just attempted to update using the gui that pops up when it finds updates17:44
chrometigerescott: Intel mobile 4 series card17:44
MonkeyDustshurikrulik  type sudo -e [filename]17:44
Penguincscchrometiger: only google earth?17:44
Penguincscmaybe an OpenGL issue?17:45
escottchrometiger, what is the cpu?17:45
Penguincscchrometiger: run dmesg17:45
chrometigerGoogle Earth says  "Unknown Graphics card"17:45
escottMaynardWaters, can you give any more context on this error. i still cant figure out where it is coming from17:45
MonkeyDustshurikrulik  or sudo nano [filename]17:46
Penguincscchrometiger: try to log out and choose Unity 2D  does it work then?17:46
shurikrulikdon't opens...17:46
chrometigerescott: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1016701/17:47
escottshurikrulik, what exactly did you type?17:47
shurikruliksudo nano default.txt17:47
vph #ffmpeg17:47
chrometigerPenguinsc: Unity and Unity 2d work,    I cant get gnome shell to work17:47
escottchrometiger, /proc/cpuinfo would be more helpful17:47
escottshurikrulik, and what does "pwd" say?17:48
MaynardWatersescott I openedd up this eeepc after a few months of not touching it, it was working find, the update manager popped up with security updates, in clicked install, it go about 70-80% done, then stopped, I see the connot read from /dev/sdc under the details box below the applying changes where it says configureing linux-image-2.6.38-15-generic17:48
shurikruliknothing no activity17:49
shurikrulikno answers17:49
MaynardWatersim probably just going to sudo kill the update soon if you dont have any ideas where this is coming from17:49
escottMaynardWaters, without some additional lines (like those that preceded the error) its pretty much impossible to figure out what happened17:50
shurikrulikterminal recive command but dose nothing17:50
escottshurikrulik, do you have a terminal prompt?17:50
chrometigerescott: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1016706/17:50
Penguincscchrometiger: do you have multiple monitors?17:50
judgeni have tried both current desktop and gtk17:51
shurikruliknothing absolutely17:51
Penguincscchrometiger: whats the video chip?17:51
chrometigerIntel Mobile 4 series17:51
escottchrometiger, thats a low end chip. perhaps the graphics card just cant handle it17:52
escottshurikrulik, then what are you seeing?17:52
chrometigerso does gnomeshell require more than Unity ?17:52
escottchrometiger, you could send us "glxinfo"17:53
TigerboyI've gotten such poor overall video performance under ubuntu considering I have a highend amd and 8core cpu running at 4.2gigahertz per core. a lot of tearing and when I turn tear-free on in amd settings it is very jittery and frame loss goes up17:53
shurikruliki entered sudo nano default.txt , terminal swallowed it and nothing else17:54
Penguincscchrometiger: does it crash or dosn't start at all?17:54
escottshurikrulik, perhaps you are in nano already i think ctrl-x is the exit key17:54
TigerboyI am using the default AMD commercial driver that comes with Ubuntu. Should I change it to something else for better performance?17:55
chrometigergnomeshell doesn't even load  it just spits me into  gnome panel    default17:55
shurikrulikokey, thk u for help.17:55
escottchrometiger, might you have ever installed nvidia drivers?17:55
compdocTigerboy, did you select the propritory driver?17:55
compdoctry the native one17:55
Tigerboycommercial = proprietary17:56
chrometigerescott: yeah   when I first installed 11.10  I was hooked to my main pc   "im running off an external hd"17:56
TigerboyI need the features of the commercial/proprietary17:56
luc4_macHi! I've been asked by the ubuntu developers to test a mainline kernel. I installed it but it is not booting. I reported this result but now the problem is that I can't boot anymore :-) I'd have to select another kernel in grub, but my keyboard does not respond. Is my only chance to use a live CD?17:56
escottchrometiger, then you need to remove the nvidia driver17:56
compdocnot if it doesnt wrk17:56
Penguincscchrometiger: try this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/86465/switch-from-nvidia-to-internal-intel-hd-graphics-opengl-does-not-work17:56
chrometigerescott:  how do I go about that17:56
escottchrometiger, you can use jockey to disable the nvidia driver or you can remove it with apt-get17:57
chrometigerescott:  k  gimme a bit  i'll try17:58
Penguincscchrometiger: it says it in step 4 of the guide I ssent you17:58
