basokeOkay, so I'm having a weird problem, when I open an openGL window, or the GIMP, the desktop gets all manner of hideous graphical spazms.00:08
ScuniziIs there an easy way to unmount a SD card outside of opening Dolphin and doing it from there..?  Let's leave the cli out of responses please.. I know that one.00:27
SentynelScunizi: does it appear in the device notifier in the system tray? if so there'll be an unmount button there00:28
Scunizigood question.. haven't looked there. hang on00:28
ScuniziSentynel: yep.. I played with the little icon right next to its listing.  Although not very clear about what it does when looking at it, it appears to mount and unmount the card. Is that the easy location?00:30
SentynelScunizi: that's the quickest gui way of mounting/unmounting I'm aware of00:31
ScuniziI've been on this version of KDE for quite some time and never bothered to look there. Thanks! :)  and shame on me :-/00:31

systemclientwhat is an easy way to get a DHCP Server running for eth0 for a LAN Party? I just need it for one event and want to start it manually. Can I set it in the network settings or do I have to install something?06:31
=== pangolin is now known as IdleOne
azevedoHello, someone else sow a KDE issue when you minimized some application?06:39
hateballsystemclient: you'd need to install a dhcpd, either dhcpd3 or dnsmasq is what I'd go with06:44
hateballsetting up dhcpd3 is pretty trivial, and you could change the daemon to start manually06:44
systemclienthateball: okay, how would I set it up to start manually?06:46
systemclienthateball: sysv-rc-conf?06:50
hateballsystemclient: this is a pretty good post http://askubuntu.com/a/2034706:50
systemclienthateball: I'll look into that, thanks!06:50
hateballI don't know which version you're on, I don't know if it's upstart in 12.04 as I've not used dhcpd on that06:50
hateballif it's not, you'll want to use update-rc.d06:50
systemclienthateball: I'll look into it, the askubuntu post is pretty  thorough06:55
systemclientWhen I try to install packages, I am told that something is broken and packages are held. How can I upgrade all held packages?06:56
calcmandanis there a kernel module that allows reading from a compact flash drive? When i put a micro sd card on my machine, it mounts fine. If i load a live disc, it won't see the same micro sd. i'm thinking kubuntu's live disc kernel doesn't have the module.06:59
hateballsystemclient: make sure you apt-get update first06:59
systemclienthateball: I think I am missing the main repo … changed the mirror and I guess I messed that up07:01

BlaXpiritMuon is actually great11:23
BluesKajHey all11:24
Avihaydoes it show you the dpkg output yet?11:24
BlaXpiriti'm not sure what you mean by that. but from all the graphical package managers it's the best11:26
Avihayunless it gives me enough output to know when my system is broken, why and what I can do to fix it, like the dpkg output does, it's a bad idea to use it as a package manager11:37
Avihaytry synaptic, it's ugly, but it's feature complete and it shows you the dpkg output, so you know exactly what goes wrong with your installation when it happens11:38
Avihaydpkg is a "package manager for Debian" (it deals with the what's on your computer side rather then with how to get the packages online) your package manager' more or less, has to use it to do the actual installing11:43

genii-aroundmandy434: Ok. So, to try: cd && sudo chown $(whoami): /home/$(whoami)/.ICEauthority20:35
gregoit seem this can also happen if someone uses sudo on graphcial interface instead of kdesudo20:36
genii-aroundmandy434: And then go back to the graphical login screen and see if you able to enter after that20:36
mandy434ok will try this now20:36

Joitmandy you can try this, open a new window with ctrl-alt-f1 or f2 or f3 .. login as user21:23
Joitthen hit chown user:user /home/user/.ICEauthority21:23
Joitits a workaround when iceauthority didnt get updated21:24

Joitit writes, with root rights, not sure, if you have to put sudo infront21:24

Joityou can switch back21:24
Joitjust look where at what window you are in now,21:24
mandy434for user is that my user nake or "user"21:25

Joitnot sure why he use 644 for this21:28
Joitusual its something 1000 or so21:28
Joitbut i think it doesnt make much matter21:28
mandy434now ok will do that now21:28
Joitthen type exit21:29
Joitand then reboot21:29
Joiti found another page :p21:30
Joitone sec21:30
mandy434already rebooting21:30
mandy434did i mess up21:30
Joitdid you use sudo at the chown command?21:31
mandy434i did21:31
Joitok, that what he suggested too21:31
Joiti will past what he did21:31
Joitwas similar to ours21:31
Joit1. cd /home/benutzername/21:31
mandy434cool. should i try to log on regular now21:31
Joit2. rm -r .ICEauthority21:31
Joit4. touch .ICEauthority21:31
Joit5. sudo chown Benutzername /home/Benutzername/.ICEauthority21:32
Joit6. sudo reboot21:32
mandy434do i need to do these commands now21:32
Joithe said, that way the iceauthority will be created new21:32
mandy434okay i will do that now21:32
Joitwell, not sure, i tink both should work, only not sure, if the usernumber does make a different21:32
Joitbut we can try it afterwards again,w hen it doesnt work21:33
skreech_mandy434: try ls -l /home21:33
Joitany user got a number21:33

mandy434it says missing operand after mandy/home/mandy.ICEauthority21:36
mandy434when i try the chown command21:36
Joitdo you use it as root?21:37

Joitcd /home/mandy ..?21:38
=== [mad]Berry is now known as madberry
mandy434so cd first21:39
mandy434oh shoot missed that ill redo21:39
Joitwhat do you get at ls -ls /home?21:40
Joitwhat numbers21:40
Joitwhat numbers for mandy21:40
Joiterr ls -la /hom21:40
Joit :) ls -la /home      Is it!21:41
mandy434it says cd command not found. or without sudo permission denied21:41
Joitdo ls21:42
mandy434it took that21:42
mandy434do you need the output21:42
Joitjust tell me the number what is in the line of mandy21:43
Joitthen we can compare with the first example21:44
mandy434there are four lines. the first says "total 12"21:45
mandy434the next " drwxr-xr-x 3 root root"21:46
Joitwell, i looked again, seems 777 works better, because it changes the the permission of folders subfolders and files21:46
Joitcan you open again a console with ctrl-alt-f2 or 321:47
Joitf1 - f5 works21:47
mandy434im in f1 right now21:47
Joitlogin as user21:48
mandy434should i switch21:48
Joitno its ok i think21:48
mandy434okay i am already logged on as user in that case21:48
Joitthen do sudo chmod 777 /home/user/.ICEauthority21:48
Joitthen do sudo chmod 777 /home/mandy/.ICEauthority21:48
TheLordOfTimeum... in practice,777-ing items is bad21:49
TheLordOfTimelike literally ***bad***21:49
Joitdarn it, you are right21:50
Joiti read further21:50
Joiti am sorry, need to redo it21:50
TheLordOfTimei'm not on KDE atm, but I have a .ICEauthority... its perms are like this21:50
TheLordOfTime32K -rw------- 1 teward teward 28K Jul 12 16:50 .ICEauthority21:50
mandy434uh o21:50
mandy434now what21:50
Joit1 sec...21:50
mandy434already dids it21:50
Joitnothing lost21:51
mandy434is there a sudo undo ha ha21:51
Joityou allways can change the permission21:51
mandy434oh good21:51
Joityou simple overwrite it with a new sudo :)21:51
TheLordOfTimewould be 600 if you're using numerics to define permissions21:51
Joit664 was ok, just need a _r at last21:51
TheLordOfTime(if you're matching default-setups)21:51
mandy434ok so what do i write now?21:52
Joitthat page i looked up again, said, you can get errors with ie apche at 77721:52
mandy434so do the same thing but do sudo chmod 664 /home/mandy/.ICEauthority -R21:53
Joit do sudo chmod 664 /home/user/.ICEauthority -R21:53
mandy434okay done21:54
Joitok, now you can reboot21:54
Joiti hope to see you soon :)21:54
mandy434rebooting I need a drink. Should it work now21:55
Joitchanging the permissions is not a big deal anyway21:55
Joityes, it should21:55
Joitwe did create the permission file new and set the permission from your files and folders at your home folder21:56
Joitthere is nothing lost when you didnot format anything or delete :)21:56
mandy434It still wont let me log in "cannot enter home dierectory. using /."21:56
Joityou need to reboot21:57
Joitdid you do that?21:57
mandy434I did.21:57
Joitthat was fast21:57
mandy434did it matter that the cd step was missed before21:57
SimpHi people of the World21:57
Joitnot for the example one21:58
Joithe didnt do that21:58
mandy434so i only needed the one chmod command21:58
Joittry again sudo chown mandy:mandy /home/user -R21:59
Joitand then reboot again21:59
Joittry again sudo chown mandy:mandy /home/mandy -R21:59
Joitmissed one mandy :)21:59
Joitthen reboot22:00
Joitbtw did you install maybe clamav?22:00
Joita page said, it can mess up with this file22:00
Joitor the permission even22:01
mandy558sorry lost connection for a minute22:02
mandy558Still no luck22:03
Joitok again step by step22:04
Joitbut i wanna look again a bit more at the web22:04
Joityou are not the only one with the problem :) maybe someone has a good solution22:04
szalis that an installed system or a live system?22:04
mandy558this is so weird. I worked perfectly for 2 months.22:05
mandy558what is installed vs live22:05
mandy558Its all local and a fresh installation if thats what you mean22:05
Joitmandy558:  shows 2 solutions now. either reboot in recovery mode, or first try it again with chmod22:11
Joitthe first and easy method is, open a a console again22:12
Joitthen type chown mandy:mandy /home/mandy/.ICEauthority22:12
Joitthis time maybe without root rights22:12
Joitwhen you got an error, then you have to use the sudo22:12
Joiti understand peoples very well, when they do not want to look at the net, so much mess there ...22:13
mandy558do i need -R22:13
Joitat the next command22:13
Joitdid you get an error?22:14
mandy558okay not on the chown though22:14
mandy558no errors22:14
Joitchmod 644 /home/mandy/.ICEauthority22:14
Joitthe -r command is actually only to change the permission at the folder and files22:15
Joitthis 2 been for set the permission at the iceautority file22:15
mandy558so -R on this one either22:15

Joitmainly its to fix the ice file and have the permission for your user22:19
Joityes, you can use any konsole what runs at f1-f522:19
Joitit doesnt matter, you can open them all time at linux, thats wha is kinda handy here :)22:19
mandy558Cool. Should I try normal logon now?22:19
Joitand toogle betweeeen the konoles with ctrl-alt f1-f522:19
mandy558dang same old errors22:20

Joitthe 2nd line usual says recovery mode, and you can pick it with the arrow key22:23
Joitup and down keys22:24
mandy558you mean failsafe mode?22:24
mandy558okay. I will try. That wasnt working earlier though.22:25
Daskreechmandy558: Still having issues?22:25
Joitok. do you get something like a recovery menu?22:25
mandy558I get same errors for failsafe. no luck22:26
Joityes Daskreech still no ccess22:26
Joitmandy, not yet :)22:26
Joitdo you have a recovery menu or only a prompt?22:26
Joita command line22:26
mandy558i can only access the command line. i get the home folder error when trying to access failsafe from the KDE login menu.22:27
Joitits ok, are you logged in there as user or root?22:27
mandy558im not sure. i have to give my user name and password.22:28
Joitok means you can choose what you want22:28
Joitlogin as root then22:28
Daskreechmandy558: can You type sudo apt-get -y install pastebinit22:29
mandy558do i use root for user name in command line22:29
Daskreechmandy558: no22:29
mandy558oh. so how do i pick?22:29
mandy558Dakreech:: I can try that22:30
Daskreech!root | joit22:30
ubottujoit: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo22:30
Joityeah was about to sudo the rest22:31
Daskreechmandy558: When that installs let me know22:31
DaskreechIs that ok it's installed?22:32

Daskreechmandy558: Now type pwd23:04
mandy558it still outpouts   /23:04
Daskreechmandy558: ha ok :) type ls -la /home | pastebinit23:05
Joitwith the -b option23:06
Daskreechpatebinit byitself doesn't work?23:07
mandy558i mean paste in that adress23:08
Joitno, mandy, yes Daskreech you need -b http://url23:08
Daskreechmandy558: Fixed it already. can you type grep mandy /etc/passwd | pastebinit23:09
DaskreechJoit: Booo23:09
Joituse -b http://paste.ubuntu.com23:09
Joitpste ubuntu will create the url23:09
Joitelse pastebinit wont work23:10
DaskreechJoit: Oh I guess that makes sense. She doesn't own anywhere that can create a default23:10
Mandy089sorry my chat session failed23:10
DaskreechMandy089: ok did you get the last command I gave you?23:11
Joityes, probatly, http://pastebin.com is the default23:11
Daskreechgrep mandy /etc/passwd | pastebinit -b paste.ubuntu.com23:11
Mandy089what was it again? :)23:11
TheLordOfTimeJoit:  if you're using pastebinit its default was paste.ubuntu.com ages ago23:11
TheLordOfTimesince at least natty23:11
DaskreechTheLordOfTime: yes but she has no home directory so it can't create a config and so has no default is my guess23:12
JoitTheLordOfTime:  that what i got from the page :) i do not use it anyway23:12
TheLordOfTimeDaskreech:  that's odd, i've used pastebinit without a home conf and its used paste.ubuntu.com...23:12
DaskreechTheLordOfTime: note the "is my guess" part23:12
Joitit is, because without -b it dosnt work for he23:13
DaskreechI have no idea how it actually works but it not providing a default automatically is strange23:13
TheLordOfTimesounds like a broken package version23:13
DaskreechJoit: correlation isn't causation23:13
TheLordOfTimeare they in quantal or something?23:13
Joitbut i tried the comand too after i installed pastebinit, and it did not work,23:13
Joitand my system is ok so far23:13
Joiti did need to use -b for a url23:14
Mandy089was the output23:16
DaskreechMandy089: you login with a capital M ?23:17
Mandy089is that bad23:18
DaskreechNo just checking somethings out23:18
Mandy089oh ok. good23:19
DaskreechMandy089: alright type sudo chmod 700 /home/dommunoz0123:20
Daskreechthen try login23:20
Mandy089what do you mean by login. is login a command?23:20
DaskreechMandy089: No try getting through the GUI23:21
Joitgui - graphical user interface23:22
Joitmeans she need to start the xserver?23:22
Mandy089Oh still says. Cannot enter home directory. Using/.23:22
DaskreechMandy089: type cd /home/dommunoz0123:23
Mandy089permission denied23:24
Joiti would either rename or remove the iceauthority file, yxou can craete it new with touch23:24
DaskreechMandy089: you are logged in as yourself right?23:24
Daskreechsudo chmod 777 /home/dommunoz01 then try cd /home/dommunoz0123:25
Mandy089ok that worked23:27
Joitmandy did you spell last time at the file ICEauthority with upper and lower letters?23:28
DaskreechMandy089: ok sudo chmod 755 /home/dommunoz0123:28
Mandy089i did spell it with upper and lower case23:29
Joitstill strange at all23:29
Mandy089Daskreech:: okay did the chmod thing again23:30
DaskreechMandy089: now try login to the GUI23:30
Mandy089I think its doing something23:31
Joitchmod - change file mode bits, means you set special rights on a file , like read (allowed), read write /allowed)23:31
Mandy089its slowly logging on23:31
Mandy089yep im in23:32
Mandy089is it permanantly fixed23:32
DaskreechMandy089: Yes23:34
DaskreechMandy089: Assuming that your rights on the files in your home directory haven't changed23:34
DaskreechYou had lost the rights to enter your own directory23:34
Mandy089You guys are awesome :). I tried having my brother help me, because he had set it up. But he didnt know much about fixing it.23:35
Mandy089How did i lose the rights?23:36
Mandy089so i dont do something stupid again23:36
Joitmandy that can happen in more ways, do you maybe remeber what you did do at last?23:38
Joitinstalled or deinstalled something?23:39
Mandy089i was creating a drawing for my thesis. when i tried to save the program crashed. I then restarted the computer to see if that would fix it and thats when i couldnt login.23:40
DaskreechMandy089: I can't tell you how you lostthem I just know they were gone23:40
DaskreechMandy089: I can show you how it works if you like23:40
Mandy089Daskreech:: How does it work?23:40
DaskreechMandy089: how much do you know about Unix File permissions?23:41
Mandy089not much23:42
DaskreechAlright well each file has three sets of permissions23:42
DaskreechPermissions for whoever owns the file permissions for anyone in the same group as the file and then everyone else in the world23:43
Mandy089How can these be changed23:43
DaskreechFor each of those categories you can have three basic permissions. Ability to read the file ability to change the file and ability to run the file as if it is a program23:44
Daskreechin the GUI you can right click -> properties -> permissions23:44
DaskreechIn the CLI you can use chmod23:44
Mandy089when is it necessary to change permissions23:45
DaskreechWhen you want the permissions changed :)23:45
Daskreechit's just controlling who is allowed to do what23:45
Mandy089Oh ok.23:45
Daskreechnow in your case you had lost the executable rights to your directory. When you execute a directory you enter it23:46
DaskreechThink double clicking on a folder in a file manager23:46
Daskreechso we added that back and now you can login23:46
Mandy089that makes since23:46
Mandy089so installing new programs can change this23:46
Mandy089or misusing a program in my case23:47
DaskreechMandy089: they should not and very few can actually do so in anycase23:47
DaskreechMisusing a program may but again I'm not sure what sequence would lead to that23:47
Mandy089Me neither. A frien had showed me how to use a CAD program for diagrams. libreCAD. This is when it happened.23:48
Mandy089should. i not use this program again. or reinstall it23:49
DaskreechAlso neat. hadn't head of a Librecad. Hope it's partially decent23:49
DaskreechMandy089: How did you install it?23:49
Mandy089I believe it came with kubuntu 12.04.23:49
faglnarI believe I came with kubuntu 12.0423:51
Daskreech!info librecad23:52
ubottulibrecad (source: librecad): Computer-aided design (CAD) system. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.0.1+nolibs-2 (precise), package size 2092 kB, installed size 4336 kB23:52
DaskreechSo it did23:52
Daskreechsudo apt-get remove --purge librecad && sudo apt-get install librecad23:52
Mandy089ok Ill do that now23:53
Daskreechsudo apt-get remove faglnar23:53
DaskreechMandy089: hope that works out23:54
Joityou missed the -purge23:54
DaskreechJoit: I'm being nice23:55
Mandy089 it seems to be working23:57
Mandy089so what does the && in your last statement mean?23:57
