josh___Hello, I'm having an issue getting into my ATI Catalyst Control Center (Administrative). I'm prompted for admin password, enter it, and it rejects it. Does anyone have experience on this issue?01:35
L3topjosh___: lspci -nn | grep VGA01:39
josh___what is this? I'm new to linux01:40
L3topIt is a command to be typed into terminal.01:40
L3topls is a generic prefix meaning list, pci means things on the pci bus. -nn means give me all numbers in the call. | is a pipe, meaning to pipe this output to another command. Grep is a tool which looks for specific patterns. VGA is the pattern I am looking for, it should be quoted but I am lazy.01:42
L3toplspci is NOT the same as ls, it is just a common prefix... to be clear.01:42
josh___Ah nice explanation! It kicked up some info01:42
L3topI need that info in here.01:42

josh___same thing kicked up, INstalled: 2:8.960-0ubuntu101:48
L3topThen they are installed. You probably need to reboot.01:48
josh___Alright, I'll try it out. I didn't install anything prior to joining the channel01:49
L3topThere is also fglrx-amdcccle-updates, but... you probably dont need it...01:49
L3topOk.. wait...01:49
josh___waiting :)01:49
L3topI'm an idiot josh___. I misread your initial question. You just want into catalyst.01:50
josh___yes, it allows me into the basic configuration center, but not into the administrative center where I can truely tinker with the card01:51
josh___it prompts for password, but rejects my password. I verified that I am using the correct admin password.01:51
L3topsudo fglrx-amdcccle   I believe will get you what you want... though... someone should chime in with the gksudo equivilant in KDE.01:52
josh___says fglrx-amdcccle is not a known command01:53
L3topman what opens catalyst... I don't use it... one second.01:55
L3topso... whatever the KDE equiv of gksudo amdcccle is... you really dont want to open gui aps with straight sudo01:57
ubottuIn KDE use « kdesudo <program> »  to run graphical applications with root privileges when you have to. Never just use "sudo"! | See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to find out why.01:58
josh___kdesudo amdcccle works to open up the control center. I am, however, limited to what I can configure. Is this specific to linux in general or is the administrative control center more in depth? For example: GPU and fan settings02:00
josh___The admin center is the one giving me problems in regards to accepting my admin password.02:00
L3topty bazhang.02:01
josh___Yes thank you!02:01
L3topOpening it as administrator (kdesu) should not prompt you for pass to get into administrative josh___.02:01

su_idk if i'm the best person to answer this but you could look in system settings>session management - I did not like programs autostarting so i told it to start with an empty session09:25
jarleAceKing: just make sure to kill Nautilus before you log out, so that it is not started again when your session is resumed at login...09:25

jarleAceKing: if you start with empty session it will not start any of the programs you had running when you logged out, if thats what you want...09:28

amichair_can anyone recommend a good firewall gui? guarddog was great, but no longer works on 12.0411:18
BluesKajamichair_, ufw ?11:34
amichair_BluesKaj: gui?11:34
BluesKajamichair_, according to synaptic "front-end for iptables"11:35
amichair_BluesKaj: it's a cli frontend to an even worse cli interface :-)11:36
BluesKajok , amichair_ ...guess I should stay out of FW stuff , was merely making a suggestion11:37
amichair_BluesKaj: thanks :-)11:37
amichair_BluesKaj: (for your intentions, not for staying out of it ;-) )11:38
BluesKajamichair_, is a FW a requirement at your workplace or are you the cautious type ? Can't blame you if you are , but i'm just curious.11:39
BluesKajmorning mydogsnameisrudy11:40
amichair_BluesKaj: cautious type I suppose. I've got a bunch of stuff running here like vnc,mysql,postgres etc. which should never be accessed outside of localhost, alongside a webserver, ssh and others that should. I'd rather be safe than sorry...11:41
BluesKajyeah amichair_ sounds like you should be careful , with all those ports open11:42
qbitone good way to enhance security on web/database server if there is absolutely no anticipation for tcp connectivity is to turn it off in the database server configs and only have the web server connect through a socket11:44
qbitfirewalling is never really a bad idea either though  - I just have zero experience with firewalling in Linux or doing it with GUIs11:45
qbitI use PF in FreeBSD and just hand edit the rule set11:45
amichair_qbit: true, that's how I have mysql configured. but there are still a bunch of other stuff, and in general I'd prefer having a gatekeeper rather than being vulnerable to human error, upgrades, bugs and app-specific security11:46
amichair_and until now, with guarddog, it was pretty painless11:47
amichair_I've done some lower-level iptables configurations before... I'd just rather not, since it's harder to maintain (or recommend to anyone else, for that matter)11:47

simplewis there any rrepository  with a more recent kde version?  in ubuntu repos theres 4.8.313:11
Sentynelsimplew: the ubuntu repos have 4.8.413:14
simplewSentynel: wht repo are you refering?13:15
CyberSixthe ubuntu one13:16
simplewCyberSix: i just asked which one is that, becaus ei have the ubuntu repo and i only have 4.8.313:17
Sentynelsimplew: it's currently in proposed as far as I can see13:17
Sentynelit's also available from the kubuntu ppa as usual, and 4.9 beta is available from kubuntu beta backports13:18
simplewSentynel: whats the url of the repo?13:18
simplewSentynel: thats not the url13:20
Sentynelwhat url do you want, exactly? the launchpad page? https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ppa/+archive/ppa13:21
simplewSentynel: ah thats a kubuntu repo, thats not ubuntu repo13:21
Sentynelthat's the ppa13:21
Sentynelit links to the 4.8.4 packages in ubuntu proposed though13:22
simplewthis is very weird, i just tried to change an application association to change default browser and i was told that the file ~/.kde/share/config/filetypesrc belongs to root, how can this be?13:25
simplewSentynel: i just see that there are others, how can this be possible?13:26
simplewin ~/.kde/share/config/ i hve 5 files root owned13:27
Sentynelprobably you ran an application that alters those as root13:27
simplewSentynel: theres no application doing such thing13:28
CyberSixnot now13:28
simplewso this is some done in the packages install13:32
Sentynelthose files aren't created by package install, they're created by the programs when they're run13:33
Sentynelat some point in the past, you must have run some program that alters those files as root, causing the files to be owned by root13:33

freeetownL3top: i was referring to /etc/alternatives/x-sesssion-manager. After solving the kdm don't like no special characters, logging on would end up with a message about not finding gnome with only the option to log off14:48
L3topRight... there is a sort of complicated flow to get to DM... I am just rediscovering it all, and trying to figure out how this could occur.14:49

genii-aroundDaemonWitch: So long as you have run chkdsk recently and the filesystem is marked clean, should be no issue resizing from gparted15:13

freeetownL3top: er...i don't know what d-i defaults are but gnome-session was installed (but no gnome heh) and then symlinked to instead of startkde15:20
freeetownand d-i is involved because i used the alternative install cd - only way to install  on lvm15:21
L3topI will have to download the alt installer to figure this out. That isn't going to happen atm. I have a very poor connection and netflix is being used elsewhere in the house15:24
freeetownL3top: no worries - i doubt that you get very many people that moan about d-i15:25
L3topWell... it is entirely possible that d-i is being used incorrectly... not that d-i is the root of the problem... and THAT would need to be fixed.15:26

DaemonWitchlets see15:42
DaemonWitchgenii-around, so if i want to use vesa i just use the vga=xxx option?15:42

ubottugeoff__: A list of official Ubuntu IRC channels, as well as IRC clients for Ubuntu, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InternetRelayChat - For a general list of !freenode channels, see http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#channellist - See also !Guidelines17:24
geoff__but I was more curious about the etiquette17:25
BluesKajthat depends on the server/chatroom. the Code of Conduct if restrictive will usually be posted at the top of the cleint with guideline links etc17:26
geoff__so people don't just join channels, and begin talking into the void?17:27
BluesKajgeoff__, for ubuntu https://wiki.kubuntu.org/IRC/Guidelines17:27
geoff__but where do active chats happen? like http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/2012/05/05/%23kubuntu-devel.html17:31
BluesKajgeoff__, you can talk intothe void if you have a support question , but general chit chat should be done in #kubuntu-offtopic17:31
reclockhola cual es el canal de ubuntu español17:40
reclockjoin ./ubuntu.es17:42
reclockno recuerdo como conectarme17:43
BluesKajreclock, /join ubuntu-es17:43
ubottuEn la mayoría de los canales de Ubuntu, se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español entre al canal #ubuntu-es; escriba "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y presione intro.17:44
leonard_/join #xbmc17:44
genii-aroundone /17:44
leonard_strange client17:44
yoyoor click on #xbmc17:45
leonard_did i type 2 slashes?17:45
BluesKajguess i should have specified  /join ubuntu-es in the server textbox17:46
jamil_1hi all17:53
jamil_1wonder why Xorg process is eating 80% cpu and plasma-desktop is eating 40% cpu17:53
jamil_1how can I reduce this load ?17:53
d0c_u have a fresh install?17:53
jamil_1~ 6 months old17:54
jamil_1or perhaps more17:54
genii-aroundjamil_1: alt-shift-f12 turns off windows effects. They often chew up a lot of resources17:54
d0c_maybe some bug with a theme17:55
jamil_1not that Xorg and plasma-desktop hog cpu at all times, but when they do, pc becomes barely useable17:55

amr_hi everybody18:15
anon__Hi. I have a generic question please. I have a folder which contains many (100+) subfolders, each containing a few subfolders of their own, etc. Is there a quick way to gather all the files (not folders) in a single folder?18:30
L3topfind ./ -f * --exec mv {} /path/to/folder         may work.18:32
L3topfind ./ -f '*' --exec mv {} /path/to/folder may work.18:32
anon__ '*' will not also move folders?18:33
anon__will try this though and report back, thanks :)18:33
anon__find: unknown predicate `-f'18:35
L3toper... one second18:37
L3top-type f18:37
L3topfind ./ -type f '*' --exec mv {} /path/to/folder may work.18:38
Piciyou don't need that '*' there.18:38
anon__with '*', I get this error:18:39
anon__find: Arguments to -type should contain only one letter18:39
L3topyeah... probably not...18:39
anon__and without '*'18:39
anon__I get this:18:39
* L3top should test gibblets like that before giving to people... esp with exec...18:40
anon__find: unknown predicate `--exec'18:40
Pici-exec only has one dash18:40
L3topone -18:40
Piciand you may want to change -exec to -echo to make sure it looks like its doing what you want.18:40
* L3top is all over the place... sorry18:41
Piciyou need \; at the end as well.18:41
anon__I also tried with one dash (after consulting man)18:41
L3topscript fail.18:41
* genii-around makes a very strong coffee, makes sure L3top drinks it18:41
L3topty Pici18:41
anon__ok let's try with -echo instead of exec and a \;18:41
anon__still, unknown predicate '-echo'18:42
anon__here's my command:18:42
anon__find /Desktop/users/user/ -type f -echo mv {} /Desktop/users/user/all \;18:42
L3topthat will create a loop18:43
L3topoh no nm18:43
* L3top drinks coffee18:43
Picihrm... echo might have been deprecated.  use -print18:44
anon__I'm down my first bottle of white wine, brb till I bring the second one, it's going to be a long night :)18:44
Klaus_Dieterhello world18:44
anon__find: paths must precede expression: mv18:44
anon__Usage: find [-H] [-L] [-P] [-Olevel] [-D help|tree|search|stat|rates|opt|exec] [path...] [expression]18:44
Piciand yes, that will create a loop. use -maxdepth=1 if you didn't want to decend down any subdirectories in /Desktop/users/user/18:44
anon__(after using -print)18:44
Picione monet18:44
lordievaderHey everyone18:44
Picihrm... looks like find has removed -echo, but now theres -ok18:45
Klaus_DieterI am running the current kubuntu release and I am happy with it. however every time kalender pops up a reminder I also get this popup that a module called "Z protocol source" could be installed but it is never found for the install. what exactly is missing here?18:46
Klaus_DieterPici: isn't that print0?18:46
Klaus_DieterPici: also -exec echo {} \; does the trick... but it probably is a hell of a lot slower18:46
PiciKlaus_Dieter: thats what I wanted18:47
PiciI think *I* need the coffee now.18:47
Picibeen a long day here.18:47
Picianon__: sorry for the confusion.18:48
* genii-around makes a fresh new pot of very strong coffee for everyone18:49
anon__genii-around can I have a turkish coffee please?18:50
anon__Pici np, just got a bit lost, what would the command look like now?18:50
* genii-around slides anon__ a turkish coffee, just right for drinking18:50
anon__(wow given that I'm receiving commands all day long at work, feels good actually command...)18:51
Picianon__: find /path/ -type f -exec echo mv {} /other/place/ \;18:51
anon__ok let's try this18:51
Piciand then just make sure it looks good before you remove the echo from that.18:51
anon__find: missing argument to `-exec'18:52
Klaus_Dieterhmm I am not sure this is space safe18:52
Piciits technically not.18:52
anon__space safe?18:52
PiciIf you have spaces in your filenames.18:53
Klaus_Dieterif you have spaces / special chars / newlines in your file names this will break18:53
Klaus_Dieterif you only want -maxdepth 1 why don't you use shell globbing?18:53
anon__btw, should there be a space between /place/\;  ?  (before \;)18:53
Klaus_Dieterfor i in *; do mv "${i} /some/place/else; done18:53
anon__Klaus_Dieter: because of two reasons: A) I don't know what -maxdepth is, and B) I have no idea what globbing is, if it hasn't a sexual connotation18:54
Klaus_DieterI wasn'T aware of a sexual connotation... not a native speaker18:54
Klaus_Dieterthe shell will expand * to filenames18:54
anon__neither do I, just sounds like a sloppy blowjob18:54
Klaus_Dieterok so let's just note that if I had meant a sloppy blowjob, I would have said "sloppy blowjob" and move on then ;)18:55
Klaus_Dieteranon__: so what exactly are you hoping to achieve?18:56
genii-aroundPlease remember to try and be family friendly in this channel18:56
Klaus_Dieterok. I am trying but apparently not very good at it. sorry.18:56
anon__Klaus_Dieter: assuming I have /folder with a large structure of subfolders, sub-sub-folders, each containing some files. I also know for a fact that there aren't two similar filenames,18:56
L3topIt will not break on spaces.18:57
anon__I need to move all files into a single folders18:57
anon__L3top: I am almost sure there aren't any spaces, but there could be some special characters.18:57
anon__ah I (may) have an idea, can wget work on local folders?18:57
Klaus_Dieteranon__:  are spaces in the filenames or directories?18:58
anon__Klaus_Dieter: in filenames *probably*18:58
Klaus_Dieterwell since L3top has now established that what Pici  wrote will not break on spaces (also I tried locally) I don't see why this shouldn't work19:01
L3topyou would want to use rsync over wget probably... but find will work. You should check in #bash with what you have for further tweaking.19:01
L3topI dont know about special characters, but I cannot see why it would be a problem with find19:01
anon__well I have stock installation (Penguin)19:01
L3topfind finds special chars.19:01
Klaus_Dieteranon__: don'T worry this will work19:01
L3topthat might cause a problem19:02
anon__ok just so I can eliminate the possibility of typo, would anyone please type me the final command, and I will only replace the paths?19:02
Klaus_DieterL3top: I just tried with spaces19:02
Klaus_Dieteranon__: you are only exchanging the risk of you making a typo for the risk of someone else making a typo19:02
L3topyeah... me too with whitespaces19:02
L3topbut... umlaut or something...19:02
L3topor !19:03
L3topcould do some weird stuff19:03
anon__Klaus_Dieter: isn't this why I came to the experts channel?19:03
Klaus_DieterL3top: didn't try with newlines though19:03
L3topanon__: for this #bash are the beasts19:03
L3topfilename with newlines?19:03
L3topwho would do such an evil thing19:04
anon__L3top: nope, no newlines19:04
Klaus_Dieteranon__: well... no. Coming here does not rid you of the responsibility for your system19:04
anon__okk I'll see with #bash, will report back here if there's any success19:04
Klaus_Dieterhowever Pici  has already typed out what you need19:04
Klaus_Dieterfind /path/ -type f -exec echo mv {} /other/place/ \;19:05
Klaus_Dieterto execute, only get rid of the echo19:05
anon__we have the answer19:10
anon__finish your drink and look at this:19:10
anon__find /path/from -type f -exec mv -t /path/to {} +19:10
anon__the man placed the + sign at the end to note that he's GOOD19:11
anon__thanks for everyone, have a great evening19:13

L3toproot@dcerouter:~/Desktop# find ./ -type f -iname '*' -exec cp {} /home/$USER/Desktop \+          <=-------- was one of my experiments before figuring out that spaces weren't a problem.19:16
L3topalmost there...19:17
* L3top supposes the 30 or so failures over here still indicate he ISN'T good19:18
