MagneticDuckokay, start with a few tutorials00:00
MagneticDuckany good tutorials guys?00:00
MagneticDuckI'm reading a few00:00
usr13Fusion_: What kind of mouse is it?  (and I know it is USB, you already told me that...)00:00
MagneticDuckI'm learning linux myself too, someone100:00
Fusion_usr13 its a Logitech M9000:00
bazhang!manual | someone100:00
ubottusomeone1: The Ubuntu Manual will help you become familiar with everyday tasks such as surfing the web, listening to music and scanning documents. With an emphasis on easy to follow instructions, it is suitable for all levels of experience. http://ubuntu-manual.org/00:00
MagneticDucksomeone1: as to copying the files to a "www directory"..00:00
bazhang!rute | someone1 and this00:00
ubottusomeone1 and this: documentation is to be found at http://help.ubuntu.com and http://wiki.ubuntu.com - General linux documentation: http://www.tldp.org - http://rute.2038bug.com00:00
MagneticDucksomeone1: that's networking00:01
usr13Fusion_: Ok I dono what a M90 is.  Does it have a scroll wheel and buttons on either side?00:01
Fusion_yes it does00:01
nakkorbump, I slightly screwed up sudo. Whever I type sudo (i.e. sudo ls) the first line out is - sudo: unable to resolve host00:02
nakkorI have no idea wtf caused that, anyone else know?00:02
Auzynakkor, Maybe check /etc/hosts ?00:03
AuzyCheck if localhost is in there..00:03
usr13Fusion_: Does the rest of the Desktop look pretty normal?00:03
Dr_willisset your hostname nakkor00:03
ubottuUse hostname <somehostname> to set the hostname, or to do it permanently: edit /etc/hosts to include BOTH the old and new hostname and then change /etc/hostname to the new one. WARNING! Make sure that your current hostname and /etc/hosts match, otherwise sudo may not work properly.00:03
usr13Fusion_: Is there a distortion in the way the desktop looks?00:03
Fusion_yes it does. all the menu bars on gnome are there and the keyboard works normal just the mouse is not there00:04
y0om4I am trying to enter a code into visiondirect for first time and new customers. I tried clearing my cooking, changing my ip, logging out, and using Tor browser but I still cannot use the code again. I do not understand how they could be logging my computer that disallows me to reuse the coupon. What could they be doing that prevents that?00:04
bazhang!ot | y0om400:05
ubottuy0om4: #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!00:05
nakkorAuzy: Dr_willis  I don't think it is a hostname thing, it is whenever I type sudo anywhere that is the first line out00:05
MagneticDuckhey.. question... why doesn't "kill $$" kill the running shell?00:05
ghostchicknakkor,  what did you changed to the configuration?00:05
Auzyhave you checked though nakkor ?00:05
nakkorghostchick: that is the problem, idk00:05
Dr_willisNakkel,  its trying to determina your hostname/ip/stuff is my guess.... thats what the error means to me at least.00:05
Auzyit could  be something completely unrelated too..00:06
someone1my answer wasnt there on the documentaction00:06
nakkorAuzy: yeah, nothing in etc hosts00:06
usr13Fusion_: In gconf-editor it is:  gnome -> peripherals -> mouse00:06
usr13Fusion_: I think I told you wrong before00:06
Fusion_yes that is there00:06
ghostchicknakkor, 12.04? all updated ?00:06
MagneticDuckquestion: what's the hotkey to move a window around to another workspace?00:06
usr13Fusion_: What is cursor_size value?00:07
bazhangsomeone1, you want to use the cd as a repo, to install software from?00:07
someone1i cant cd rom on ubuntu server 1200:07
nakkorI am a newb, but it seems like something cat piped to it and it is spitting it out00:07
nakkorghostchick: 12.04 LTS00:07
usr13Fusion_: What is cursor_theme ?00:07
someone1i just wanna see the files on cd rom and copy them to harddisk00:07
bazhangsomeone1, is that a yes?00:07
someone1just like on dos00:08
MagneticDuckfirst you mount the cdrom00:08
usr13Fusion_: Well, looks normal.00:08
Fusion_yea thats the issue00:08
tightworkis ubuntu 12.04 using compiz?00:08
ghostchicknakkor,  check your pms00:08
usr13Fusion_: Why?00:08
someone1magnetic i dont know anything about console commands00:08
ghostchicktightwork,  the ubuntu unity version yes00:08
usr13Fusion_: What?00:08
bazhangsomeone1, you'd need the alternate cd to use as a software repository. there is no copying files from CD to install as you are imagining with dos00:08
Fusion_usr13 because i cant see the mouse00:09
nakkorghostchick: this is what a sample of it looks like http://pastebin.com/g6aU7DKj00:09
bazhang!alternate | someone1 download this00:09
ubottusomeone1 download this: The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/alternative-download#alternate - See also !minimal00:09
tightworkghostchick: how can I check what I have?00:09
nakkorline 2 is the poblem00:09
usr13Fusion_: Do you see anything where the cursor should be?00:09
nakkorghostchick: sorry, pms? Permissions?00:09
someone1ummm hope that tells how to mount a cd rom00:09
ghostchicktightwork,  if you installed ubuntu 12.04 you are running compiz and therefore unity00:09
Fusion_i have got it to look like a squar box with lines through making gdm defult instead of ligtdm00:10
ghostchicknakkor,  personal messages lol00:10
Dr_willisnakkor,  pastebin your /etc/hosts file00:10
tightworkghostchick: how can I turn off compiz?00:10
bazhangsomeone1, you dont mount it00:10
someone1umm mounting it with mount dev/cd rom ?00:10
MagneticDucksomeone1: hope this helps: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount/00:10
bazhangsomeone1, you simply are not listening00:10
MagneticDuckit's a nice big tutorial on mounting stuff00:10
bazhangMagneticDuck, thats not what is needed here00:11
n2diy what plugin do I need to watch youtube in chromium?00:11
Dr_willisn2diy,  you can enable the html5 feature of chromium on youtube with  the http://youtube.com/html5 page ;) or install flash..00:12
DelphiWorldDr_willis: DUDE, what youtube use for HTML5? what video format?00:13
Dr_willisDelphiWorld,  that would be 'webm'00:13
Dr_willisI belive.00:13
DelphiWorldDr_willis: ah. what about FF/IE?00:13
MagneticDuckwoah, html is getting powerful!00:13
Dr_willisDelphiWorld,  if they support webm.....00:13
DelphiWorldDr_willis: LOL00:13
DelphiWorldDr_willis: otherwise flash fallback00:14
Dr_willisI use FlashReplacer plugin on Firefox.. i watch flash videos in VLC. ;P00:14
tightworkever since i put on ubuntu my laptop has been super hot... i think its compiz, how can I turn it off?00:14
usr13Fusion_: Still there?00:14
Dr_willisso  i dont fallback to flash either.. ;P00:14
Fusion_yes i am00:14
usr13Fusion_: What display adapter do you have?00:14
Dr_willistightwork,  use the unity-2d desktop would be one way to test that.00:14
usr13Fusion_: What is your video card?00:14
Fusion_Nvidia Quattron 400:14
DelphiWorldDr_willis: hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha00:15
DelphiWorlddr_jesus: yolarrydabombu wanna laugh ?00:15
glitsj16tightwork: you can check what desktop session you are now running by entering 'echo $DESKTOP_SESSION' in a terminal .. Unity (with compiz) session is called 'ubuntu' i believe, so if that is what you get as output from the command you can change to another non-compiz session of choice by doing a logout and changing session in the loginscreen00:15
DelphiWorldDr_willis: you wanna laugh ?00:15
DelphiWorldDr_willis: i didn't evean know what channel i'm talking to you on:P00:15
bazhangDelphiWorld, lets get back on topic.00:16
tightworkglitsj16: says ubuntu, ok I will try it ty00:16
usr13Fusion_: sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak00:16
DelphiWorldbazhang: :P00:16
bazhangDelphiWorld, #ubuntu-offtopic for chit chat NOT here00:16
usr13Fusion_: In a terminal.  Ctrl-Alt-t  to launch a terminal.00:16
DelphiWorldbazhang: is that shit chat? ... BOOM!00:17
ghostchicktightwork, check your personal messages00:17
Fusion_usr13 mv: cannot stat `/etc/x11/xorg.conf': No such file or directory00:17
n2diyThanks Dr_willis, youtube is now working, how about videos on facebook?00:17
Dr_willisn2diy,  if they use flash.. install flash.. or a flashreplacer plugin...00:18
ubottuTo install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash - See also  !Restricted and !Gnash00:19
usr13Fusion_: sudo Xorg -configure00:19
Fusion_usr13 gives me Fatal Server error: Server is already active for display 000:20
usr13Fusion_: Oh yea, that you have to do with the Xserver turned off.  AND, if you have the Nvidia driver installed, you should probably use nvidia-xconfig00:22
Fusion_usr13 dont have the nvidia graphics installed00:22
usr13Fusion_: Well, maybe just install it.00:23
usr13Fusion_: Do you want to?00:23
Fusion_i will give anything a try usr13 i dont want to downgrade back to 11.1000:23
usr13Fusion_: jockey-gtk00:26
Fusion_usr13 whats that?00:26
usr13Fusion_: Run:  jockey-gtk  #It will install Nvidia driver.00:26
Fusion_ahh ok00:27
usr13Fusion_: It's the "Additional Driver" app00:27

mahir256i have a windows 7 laptop hooked up wirelessly to the internet, and a lubuntu desktop connected via ethernet (not cross-over) to the laptop's ethernet port.00:37
mahir256how would i configure the lubuntu machine to work with the laptop?00:38
mahir256also, on the windows machine the wired and wireless connections are bridged.00:38
AuzyYou mean so the network works mahir?00:38
AuzyOr, to share files?00:39
SalmanAuzy chat me00:39
mahir256no, i mean i want to hook up the desktop to the internet through the laptop00:39
AuzyOk mahir.. Normally, the lubuntu one should just work with DHCP.. But, if you use static DHCP allocation mahir256 .. Sometimes you get IP conflicts00:40
SalmanAuzy chat me00:40
AuzyEasiest way.. On the windows machine, ipconfig /all00:40
OerHeksmahir256, that would be a windows 7 isssue, ICS internet connection sharing00:40
AuzyOerHeks, not if its bridged..00:41
SalmanAuzy: You how my name green color chat00:41
=== burak is now known as Guest79433
Auzyfind out the IP address, the subnet (probably, and Gateway.. If IP address is, you set the lubuntu one to another number (if its above 100, maybe set it to 70 or something, to stop a conflict).. Gateway / subnet same as windows..00:42
AuzySalman, No idea..00:42
OerHeksSalman, if you type someones chatname, it will appear green or other colour.  Do you have an Ubuntu support question?00:42
SalmanHow OerHeks00:43
Auzymahir256, but if lubuntu says the cable is unplugged, then, you have a faulty cable, the cable isn't a crossover, windows adapter is disabled, or another problem (ie, good luck)00:43

ki4ro_OerHeks: So that's why my scanner screws up after updates?00:47
ki4ro_OerHeks: can I fix that on my machines or what?00:48
OerHekski4ro_, probably yes, install the latest one from the canon website.00:48
Dr_willisSalman,  theres no need to be Msging me private messages.. Most people  tend to ignore them00:49
ki4ro_OerHeks: I meant is there a way to correct my machines so that they get the necessary updates automatically00:49
SalmanChat me private chat00:49
OerHekski4ro_, only if canon produces a PPA, then updates can be send. and they will not.00:50
Dr_willisSalman,  why should anyone Private chat you? If you have a Ubuntyu support question.. ask it IN THE CHANNEL.00:50

ki4ro_Auzy: Don't know, but I don't think anything can "see" it until I get the latest scangear00:52
ki4ro_Auzy: Very frustrating and aggravating00:53
maucatki4ro_ hello00:54
Auzyki4ro_, I'd probably recommend bugging Canon though, and request they make an APT repo  kindly.. With steam coming later this near or next, that will bring games onboard, and a lot more people to Linux, which should make it a better platform to target for development anyway.. But suggest the idea00:54
ki4ro_Auzy: Thanks for the advice...have a good evening00:55

malikmasrdoes anyone have experience with l2tpd or ipsec?01:02
Guest79433dont work01:02
malikmasrim having some trouble with vpn01:02
Auzymalikmasr, I switched to OpenVPN personally.. I assume as a server.. L2TP / PPTP have trouble with some routers01:02
=== Guest72951 is now known as Animeking
malikmasrAuzy, the only reason i avoided openvpn was i dont think its supported on ios devices01:03
AuzyI've never checked malikmasr.. That might be true.01:03
=== Guest79433 is now known as burrakk
malikmasri believe i have the l2tpd vpn working, but for some reason it only connects with my iphone01:04
malikmasrwindows doesnt connect01:04
malikmasrnor ubuntu01:04
malikmasrwhich i found to be odd01:04
burrakkok thanks01:04
Auzymalikmasr, Thats why we gave it up lol.. connecting for us was always inconsistent at the best of times. We'd get random d/c's on some routers, and setting it up was a pain..  Theoretically.. PPTP should be a lot easier (but less secure) than L2TP though01:05
evilytwistedHI, has anyone ever played warcraft 3 lan using linux by hamachi or managed to get the bnet version to allow hosting games?>01:05
malikmasryes thats why i ignored pptp, the lack of security01:05
malikmasris that a major issue though?01:06
Auzyalso, malikmasr you need to be forwarding ports properly, and a few other things01:06
jeffreyhow to reset compiz settings01:06
=== The is now known as Guest62764
malikmasrAuzy i think the port forwarding is correct, the iphone connects no problem, its windows and ubuntu that fail to connect to the vpn01:06
malikmasrAuzy, do you know if the cisco vpn requires cisco hardware? its not a software correct?01:07
AuzyI cant help in either.. I got PPTP working somewhat, but L2TP and IPsec apparently isn't standardised, so you could be having issues for that reason too..  And yes.. Cisco needs hardware, but, the client needs a support contract I think01:08
AuzyYou can use OpenVPN on iOS apparently, if you jailbreak, but not a commercial solution01:08
AuzyI mean, nto commercially viable, because, Jailbreaking is risky, and inconsistent01:09
malikmasrOk, i may try OpenVPN then01:09
malikmasrIt requires certificates?01:09
AuzyIt might be worth it.. Since it uses a UDP tunnel, it works fine.. You could also use SSH port tunnels too I guess (but thats a bit tacky)01:10
AuzyAnd, not sure if it needs certs.. We always use a NAS as the server01:10
malikmasrdo you have a guide that u can recommend for me to setup openvpn?01:10
sdfsdHelp requested for diagnosing SSH authentication denied issue on ubuntu (http://paste.ubuntu.com/1105450/)01:10
malikmasrapparently its easier to setup then ipsec/l2tpd01:11
AuzyOh wait.. one last issue you MAY have.. Check the subnet of your network.. If your network subnet on L2TP is 192.168.0.X, but you are currently on that subnet, there is a conflict01:11
malikmasrI have already checked that01:11
malikmasrno go01:11
Auzythat might explain the ubuntu / windows issue, if you aren't on wifi01:11
malikmasri used a 10.0 subnet for clients01:11
malikmasrwell iphones isnt really a necessity01:12
malikmasri just need to make it so i can be a part of the local network when im remote01:12
malikmasrso pptpd or openvpn are my best shot i assume01:12
AuzyNo guide on OVPN.. QNAP/Synology automates the process, but, it looks easy01:12
malikmasrok ill give it a go then, would u recommend openvpn over pptpd?01:13
jeffreywhat is a good unity replacement?01:13
Auzyyep malikmasr.. PPTP has known security issues, OpenVPN doesn't.. PPTP also uses a weird protocol01:14
malikmasrok thank you so much01:14
malikmasrill give it a go01:14
Auzywhereas OpenVPN uses standard UDP, so its more likely to work anywhere you need01:14
AuzyAlso, you can get openVPN working on DDWRT and such apparently01:14
malikmasrawesome, sounds promising01:16

escottSecretFire, you might have more success removing the drive from the usb adapter and directly connecting the the SATA bus01:40
ghostchickescott,  i have a usb key (4gb) that doesnt appear anymore anywhere , any tips ?01:41
escottAllanon09, so no special attributes are set on those files. unless you are reading ls -l wrong i'm not sure what it might be01:41
SecretFireescott : that is a little beyond my comprehension. Are you saying to dismantle it and remove the disk and directly connect it as if it were an internal?01:41
escottSecretFire, thats what i would try. you might see if anyone else has ideas or ask in ##hardware for other ideas01:42

escottghostchick, sorry, don't know what you can do there01:46
Allanon09escott: I can see every folder. Today I uploaded some data to the server as "me". As media I can see those folders along with everything that was already there. I can't see any of the files in the newly uploaded folders as media.01:46
usr13SecretFire: Sometimes, when a drive is failing, it is overheating as well, and if that is the case, you can sometimes let it cool down, maybe even use some method of cooling it or keeping it cool, (maybe opening the case and using a fan or some other cooling technique)... But at any rate, when you fire it up, be prepaired to grab as much as you can fast before it quits reading again.01:47
ghostchickescott,  no worries and thanks actually i guess the usb has borked , i  will find a way though : P01:47
SecretFireusr13 : thats near impossible, as I can't even get it to mount01:47
escottAllanon09, but the permissions and ownership of the files that cant be seen are the same as the previous files (ie you setgid on the folder)01:47

SecretFireusr13: ok01:52
Allanon09escott: ok. http://paste.ubuntu.com/1116684/01:54
escottSecretFire, biggest issue is you probably need to buy a SATA cable because you probably dont have a spare. you might be able to borrow the cable from a CD drive if you have one01:54
SecretFireescott : I do have a cd drive that don't use anymore01:55
SecretFirealready connected01:55
escottAllanon09, the folder with the new files is cut off but the files inside seem to have the correct permissions01:56
escottSecretFire, then you could probably unplug the connector on the cd drive and plug that into the connectors on the hard drive (once you open the plastic)01:56

ardian__Hi I am a developer I am using Ubuntu on my laptop now, so I develop on my laptop to test the application but I don't want to make my system crashy using a virtual machine isn't the best idea so what do you suggest ? some kind of chroot ?01:57
escottSecretFire, it will be pretty obvious how to do it, just power off the computer and ground yourself before cracking the case. and no wool socks :)01:57
AuzyWhat are you developing ardian__ ?01:57
SecretFireescott : ok01:57
ardian__Auzy, from Django dev to anything also testing01:58
escottAllanon09, and the "New Movie" folder has permissions cerebro users drwxrwxr-x01:58
Allanon09escott: both have this: drwxrwxr-x 2 cerebro users01:58
AuzyBecause, depends on the application ardian__ Many virtual machines run quite well.. That's what I do..  Or I run it as a standard user..01:59
escottAllanon09, and how are you accessing these files with the "media" user? direct access or some kind of samba/nfs thing?01:59
Allanon09escott: it is done with samba01:59
escottAllanon09, then its probably a misconfiguration of samba02:00
Allanon09escott: media user can access everything else....02:00
ardian__Auzy, yes but a VM takes too much of system resoruces not sure if a chroot is something developers use02:00
escottAllanon09, maybe there is a weird character in the folder name that samba chokes on. but i would suspect something with the samba stack02:00
escottardian__, a chroot is rather complex to setup. you have to copy libc and all dependencies into that chroot02:01
Auzyardian__, Depends on the level of virtualisation. whilst I found that stuff like Virtualbox is, Xen for me was efficient.. Just need to make sure you have sufficient ram02:02
ardian__escott, ou that sucks02:02
escottardian__, i would think about the level of isolation you require. i would think you just create a new user account and login as that user and run the app02:02
escottardian__, unless its some deep core level application a different uid should be enough to protect your data and systems02:03

lauratikais it possible and secure to use a vpn over a wlan?02:07
escottardian__, not sure what is wrong with running apache on localhost, but if you want something more limited a headless vbox server could be pretty lightweight02:07
Auzylauratika, A VPN is secure anywhere, depending on what type..02:07
DshoeHello guys, just wondering if there was a way to make my PC suspend after more than 1 hour? That seems to be the limit on my settings but syncing with an Android repo takes much longer than that for me, however I don't wanna leave it on ALL night.02:07
kathiaThank you,  would you be able to help me install it on a Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid lynx) installation?02:08
kathiawait where is the backtrack room? :)02:08
AuzyServer or client? With client, networkmanager has an addon02:08

AuzyYou mean, you already have a VPN server Lauratika, and you want to connect to it?02:09

=== seventh is now known as Guest12091
escottardian__, any virtualization system will allow you to configure it as headless. obvious you install with a head, but turn the head off after the install and just shell in02:10
Auzylauratika, main thing, check what type it is (ie, pptp, openvpn, or lt2p).. Next, software centre, show technical items (bottom), grab network-manager-TYPE..02:10
ardian__escott, great didn't know about this02:11
AuzyAnd yes lauratika.. Depends mainly on the type though.. PPTP tends to be less secure, L2TP/IPSEC can be insecure (depending on the server), and OpenVPN SHOULD be secure, but, its security possibly hasn't been fully proven02:11
escottlauratika, every computer has an identifier. when you ssh user@remote it asks you to save the key which identifies "remote" if you don't trust your web connection then someone could MITM that initial exchange, but if you connect securely once then you are forever safe02:12
kathiamaybe I should reconfigure my question02:13

kathiamy success rate has been nill, except for one time I got it to work by accident, not sure how I did it (don't remember)02:15
AuzyGenerally with VPN though, you preshare keys..  Lauratika.. yeah.. install the openvpn addon.. Although, I had issues with it (but that was ages ago)02:15
escottlauratika, i don't know all the details about the VPN protocols, but the data transmitted over the wireless is encrypted so even if they break the WPA2 security they won't be able to read the VPN traffic. BUT if they break the WPA2 the first time you connect to your VPN and you have no other way of identifying it is the correct VPN, then they could compromise your connection. its like calling a number with an encrypted channel. if you ca02:16
escottn't recognize the voice on the other end then it doesn't really matter that the data is encrypted when it is transmitted because you don't know who you are talking to02:16
puufkathia have you installed "unauthorized essentials"? I think that's what you need02:17
escottlauratika, and the "preshared key" that Auzy mentioned is how you recognize the voice on the other end of the phone conversation02:17
lauratikawell the vpn seems safe enough,how do i identify if vpn is correct?02:17

MReaper-17hay alguien?02:20
kathiaI'm sorry if I ask question that might seem obvious to a lot of people02:20
escottlauratika, when you setup the openvpn server there should have been a step that generated a key. and there is presumably a public key as part of that keypair02:20

terminhellwb jeffrey02:26
escott!notunity | jeffrey02:26
ubottujeffrey: Ubuntu 11.10 and higher use GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic02:26
OerHekskathia, type restricted in softwarecentre, and choose your version02:26

lauratikaso that means this will make a secure connection right?02:26
david0rki've got a tv tuner, the chipset is the same but the vendor uses a slightly different ID, thus the module will work, but wont work as is because its not the correct ID.02:26

ubottujeffrey: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)02:26
lauratikais fair to say that using lan instead of wlan makes it way more secur?02:27
escottlauratika, not really02:27
Auzylauratika, The point of VPN is that everything sent by it cannot be seen, even in the best case02:27
david0rkardian__, ? any ideas?02:27
ardian__david0rk, what module ?02:27
Auzylauratika, whilst theoretically, it may be a tiny bit more secure on LAN, in practice, if it is more secure, then, you aren't using strong enough encryption (because, you want to stop people hijacking the connection online anyway)02:28
david0rkardian__, installed linux-source metapackage,  no .c files anywhere, but the makefile for the module is included in linux-headers.02:28
AuzyAlso, you did mention you are using WPA2 Enterprise.. Provided you are using a strong password (and have the auto connect button disabled on the router), that should be difficult to compromise anyway02:29
ardian__david0rk,  umm I never deal with the kernel02:29
david0rkardian__, i understand it's not guaranteed, so i'm not going to complain if it doesn't work, i'll take mysegfault like a man.02:29
escottlauratika, and these days with computers small enough to fit inside a wall plug it wouldn't be hard to splice an ethernet cable and put a small computer in the middle of that traffic02:30

terminhellthecomputergeek: or erase what you typed02:35

Abhijitjeffrey, and remember its in early development stage. you can practically install it in ubuntu but ubuntu do not have official packages for cinnamon.05:05
jeffreyi was asking about ubuntu05:05
Abhijitbut for cinnamon05:05
KillerFuSo basically I did all that on the link but when I check pulse it still shows only 2 channels.05:05
bobo37773KillerFu: Did you reboot after making changes?05:05
jeffreyis it possible to customize icons and add feature to the sys tray in ubuntu is what im asking05:05
jeffreylike the mail, chat app i dont use, i want to get rid of it05:06
Abhijitjust install the icon set of your choice05:06
KillerFu; default-sample-format = s16le ; default-sample-rate = 44100  default-sample-channels = 6 ; default-channel-map = front-left,front-right05:06
KillerFuwhat i think is the fact that the default channel map is front left, front - right but no center rear's or sub05:06
KillerFuyet i have no clue how to change that05:06
joe2what is pulse?05:07
bobo37773KillerFu: Are you sure 6 is right?05:07
KillerFuyes i have a 5.1 surround sound set up.05:07
jeffreyAbhijit, not the appearance the functionality...05:07
joe2dumb question, i know, but i just ran into it tonight in /tmp05:08
KillerFuFor 5.1 channel sound: default-sample-channels = 605:08
joe2ah, audio drivers?05:08
Abhijitjeffrey, ok05:08
KillerFuati ones05:08
KillerFuaudio is coming from my ati 577005:08
KillerFuso additional drivers05:08
Baramijeffrey, If you use unity on ubuntu, you can extend.. But not javascript..05:09
jeffreyBarami, no idea what youre talking about.. i just wanted to change the tray icons.. like remove the chat mail icon, add a weather icon, etc05:10
jeffreyhide network icon, etc05:10
Baramiyou can change icons manually under /user/share05:10
KillerFuwhen i do pavumeter just shows 2 channels05:10
jeffreywell that is pretty broad05:11
akhilbluecfhowlett: had to quit. back now. any idea what was wrong with the fonts?05:11
bobo37773KillerFu: Can't you change it in pavucontrol?05:11
bobo37773KillerFu: Configuration tab05:11
BaramiI know.. but unity using gnome panel and it's not easy to customize as well as gnome-shell or cinnamon..05:11
KillerFuyou mean the sound mixer?05:12
KillerFuI have no idea where pavucontrol is or how to get there... total linux noobie. :(05:12
bobo37773KillerFu: Open a shell and type pavucontrol05:12
cfhowlettakhilblue: missed your response to "does this fault occur on ALL text displayed or only on certain apps?"05:12
bobo37773KillerFu: Go to the button on the top left to search and search for terminal. That is what I mean by shell05:13
KillerFuyeah i got that :)05:13

Baramijeffrey, http://askubuntu.com/questions/138421/how-to-remove-the-mail-im-icon-from-the-notification-area05:14
bobo37773KillerFu: did you have a program called pavucontrol? The last tab entitled "Configuration" did not have drop down boxes?05:14
KillerFuIt did...but it does not have the option to change audio just turn off the HDMI audio05:15
bobo37773KillerFu: Oh. So the drop down tab did not have an option for 5.1 ?05:15
KillerFuNope. :(05:15
bobo37773KillerFu: Try alsamixer maybe05:16
akhilbluecfhowlett: Not on all apps. some aspects like login screens05:17
Yatothbobo i hv inserted that line in that file05:17
Yatothgotta see if it helps05:17
bobo37773Yatoth: Okay. Hopefully it does05:17

arvislacisHow to successfuly upload package to Launchpad PPA?05:19

=== charles_ is now known as Guest53030
bobo37773KillerFu: Other than that I have no idea05:19
KillerFusee if you read this http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=795525 he talks about channel map05:20
KillerFubut I don't know what to use for 5.105:20
KillerFuI want to try that last if that doesn't work I will try tomorrow.05:20
KillerFuAny idea what to put for the channel map then?05:20
bobo37773That tutorial is from like 4 years ago.05:21
KillerFuYeah but everything he says to do is what the official tutorial says.05:22
KillerFuI am unsure if I change the channel map if I should also take off the semi colon on that line as well?05:22
hithcan anyone help me with f.lux05:23
Luthfi_fsHay guys05:23

jmroghith: This isn't help specific to f.lux, but you might look into a similar program specifically for Linux called "redshift"05:26

devslashwhat is the default ftp server in ubuntu server05:26
hithjmrog, thanks!05:26

akhilbluecause other than the fonts there is no other trouble05:27
Luthfi_fsOh yeah05:27
cfhowlettakhilblue: before you do that, try changing the default fonts.05:27
devslashanyone ?05:27
KillerFu_well time to see if it worked05:28
akhilbluei did. i used ubuntu tweak. the thing is every time i restart a new letter is affected, not the same thing every time. it is not a big deal but it is anoyying05:28
TheVileCatalystHello madarchod05:28
devslashhow do i change the default directory that the user sees when they log in via ftp ?05:28
akhilblueanyway thanks cfhowlett.05:29
devslashwhat is the default ftp server used in ubuntu ?05:30
KillerFu_[pulseaudio] daemon-conf.c: The specified default channel map has a different number of channels than the specified default number of channels.05:30
KillerFu_sigh now i get this...05:30
devslashcan anyone help me05:30
bobo37773devslash: Dont know the default ftp server. Do you have it installed?05:31
Luthfi_fsDev:maybe i can help you05:31
devslashi thought it was vsftpd05:31
devslashi do i can log in via ftp05:31
devslashi want to change it so when i log in via ftp the default directory is not my home dir05:32
bobo37773from there just look for what program is installed. As long as it is still default05:32
cfhowlettakhilblue: annnnnnnnnnnnd there it is.  You know, of course, that UT is NOT in the Software Center.  It's a great tool, and I do appreciate the effort that went into it.  However, it's such a powerful tool that it can easily cause unintended effects... like your's.05:32
cfhowlettakhilblue: how to fix now?  assuming you have hour /home in its own partition, reinstall ubuntu.  If not, backup your data, reinstall ubuntu, restore your data.05:32
devslashhow do i configure the ftp default folder05:33

arvislacisdevslash, What problem with FTP you have?05:34
devslashi want to change it so when i log in via ftp the default directory is not my home dir but a different dir. how do i do that ?05:35
Baramidevslash, check installed package on server..05:35
devslashwhich package05:35
Barami"dpkg -l | grep ftpd" like command05:35
arvislacisdevslash, Use relative path.05:35
devslashwhat do you mean05:35
jmroghith: Are you using Unity?05:36
Barami"dpkf -l" listed package installed on system.. and you can grep package name you want.05:36
hithyes jmrog05:36
hithbtw this a great program05:36
arvislacisdevslash, I mean - change folder path to other...05:37
jmroghith: If you click on Dash (the Ubuntu logo on the Unity launcher) and type 'Startup', I think you'll see something called "Startup Applications" -- you should be able to click on that and add it to autostart05:37
hiththanks again. :D05:37
jmroghith: But that's from memory -- I don't use Unity right now.05:37
jmroghith: No problem. Glad you like it!05:37

Abhijitis there any remastersys alternate for ubuntu? i heard remastersys is dead?05:41
bobo37773Abhijit: Trying to repack an iso?05:42
bobo37773Abhijit: I use a program called isomaster05:42
bobo37773Abhijit: Takes a little getting used to. I remember it being very different from remastersys when I used it last05:43
Abhijitbobo37773, but it has all the functions as that of remastersys?05:43
bobo37773Abhijit: Well it can pack an iso for you. What are you trying to do?05:44
Abhijit'remaster' an existing ubuntu iso05:44
bobo37773Abhijit: Is the iso installed? Or are you going to extract it and chroot in or something?05:45

tinmani got a few questions now that i think about it...05:50
silareHey all, I'm getting a message like this when trying to install the Grid Compiz plugin via Git: http://pastebin.com/iixeaUzV05:51
tinmanwhats the purpose of bashrc or .profile?05:51
arvislacistinman,  just ask.05:52
tinmani did05:52
bobo37773KillerFu: This is not for Ubuntu. But maybe it can help you not sure --> https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PulseAudio/Examples05:52
arvislacistinman, Where you find bashrc?05:53
Baramisilare, Use git://anongit.compiz-fusion.org/compiz/plugins/grid.git instead of git://anongit.compiz-fusion.org/compiz/plugins/grid05:53
tinmanits geditable in home05:53
bobo37773tinman: .bashrc is a user config file for bash.05:53
silareBarami: Actually, just got help from #compiz on it. Thanks! =] It was actually that it's now "compiz" -- not "compiz-fusion" anymore. =P05:54
tinmanit holds paths, so i guess my real questions are what is the purpose of paths and what is the differance between bashrc and .profile05:54
bdi_arrg im so sick and tired of ubuntu crashing all the time.....drives me insane...linux is stable...i think not05:54
bobo37773tinman: .profile or .bash_profile ?05:54
tinmanits stable on a fresh install :P05:54
BaramiIt seems to server doen's work..05:54
Peckerbdi_: whats exactly happens before crash05:55
Peckertheres some reason...05:56
bobo37773tinman: .bash_profile is sourced if the shell is a login shell. Never had a .profile. Seems like it would be similar though05:56
tinmanive had no success with either... :/05:56
bdi_Pecker:  i have no idea...it seems to happen at random points05:56
tinmanyou should be able to gedit into .profile bobo. i didnt know i had one either till a few hours ago :P05:57
Baramisilare, git repository moved to http://cgit.compiz.org/compiz/plugins/grid05:57

tinmanoh... another question: does any one here have any experiance with intellij05:58
tinmannaaa, i said that more to sate your curiosity than mine, but if you dont have that much in this matter then i dont really see the point :/05:59
bobo37773I have .zprofile as I use zsh as my login shell.05:59
bobo37773Because zsh is awesome06:00
bobo37773I think .profile may be for your dm maybe. I don't use a dm either so that may be it.06:03

MantisTobogenProblem I cannot connect to del internet in ubuntu 12.04, I tried pppoeconf and it does not work, it worked on the installation cd just fine so it has nothing to do with the hardware configuration. Secondly, I have tried the GUI interface set up and it is not working at all either. Lastly I have tried restarting my computer and it takes 60 seconds saying it is setting up network. Can anyone help me fix this problem.06:11
FyodorovnaMantisTobogen, del internet? not sure what this means, but do you know your card?06:12
MantisTobogenMy card? how do you not know what dsl internet is there is even a selection for dsl in the gui06:13

MantisTobogenafter inputing commands problem remains @Fyodorovna06:18
Fyodorovnachris_wrx, after you load the ppa you run a update then install the package, naming it here may help as well.06:18
FyodorovnaMantisTobogen, the commands are for you to see the card then post it not a fix.06:18
MantisTobogenI got nothing after running them06:18

chris_wrxFyodorovna, I guess my question is, so I need to specify the ppa I am updating?06:20
Fyodorovnachris_wrx, I have never used bitcoin but it would be sudo apt-get install bitcoin probably, did you make sure the ppa supports your release as well.06:21
Fyodorovnachris_wrx, as regular update reads the ppa's as well.06:22
MantisTobogenI got 00:14.1 Ethernet controller: Marvell technology group Ltd. 88E8056 PCI-E gigabit either net controller (rev 12), and 03:01.0 Ethernet controller: VIA technologies, Inc. VT6105/VT6106S [Rhine-III] (rev 86)06:22

MantisTobogenbecause it is buggy @heroandtn306:23
Fyodorovnachris_wrx, By naming it I meant the app to istall bitcoin, you left that out before I asked.06:23

juhsisi have 2x1TB disk which is connected with raid0. And i use 1.8TB for windows, i allocated 200gb for ubuntu. But when i try to install ubuntu, it shows 2TB disk, not 1.8TB and 0.2TB drives. So how can i install ubuntu in this case ?09:48
rojinai get this error ../../cocos2dx/platform/CCGL.h:89:19: fatal error: GL/gl.h: No such file or directory09:48
juhsisrojina: check if you have gl.h ..09:49
bekksjuhsis: You cant do like you want it. Obviously you dont have a hardware raid0 controller, but a windows-based software-raid-controller, which is unusable in Ubuntu.09:50
rojinawhere i can check for gl.h?09:51
juhsisbekks : so what can i do?09:51
bekksjuhsis: Eithe your set up a software raid in Ubuntu (while installing) or you just use two seperate disks.09:51
juhsisrojina: in command line write this : "$cd ../.." then "$sudo find -name 'gl.h' "09:52
bekksjuhsis: And since you formatted both disks in Windows, for using them as RAID0, you have to kill that entire setup.09:52
juhsisbekks: i connect them in boot menu, not with windows..09:53
juhsisbekks: i have p8p67 mainboard, a brand new version with brand new technologies..09:53
juhsisbekks: so as i think, it is hardware controlled raid009:54
bekksjuhsis: And that mainboard does not have a hardware raid controller, but relies on a windows driver to create a windows-driver-based software raid.09:54
bekksIt isnt.09:54
juhsisbekks: ahh ok09:54
juhsisbekks: i can format it if i will have both ubuntu and windows installed on my disk09:55
juhsisbekks: but if possible i want to use it as raid0 in future..09:55
bekksjuhsis: Only as software raid, not as hardware raid. And without a backup, a RAID0 is pretty close to suicide ;)09:56
juhsisbut i have external disk, which i save my important datum :)09:56
juhsisbekks: so you suggest me to use them seperated, right?09:57
bekksjuhsis: Yes.09:57

OrpheonI have a .ogv file that I'd like to upload to youtube. Google points me towards ffmpeg, which tells me it's outdated and that I should use avconv instead. avconv complains of bad parameters. More googling reveals a mencoder line that works, but completely destroys the quality in the video.10:55
OrpheonAnd ideas?10:55
alankilaOrpheon: maybe don't record/save videos in theora format in the future?10:58
OrpheonI love Record my Desktop10:58
Orpheonbut alas10:58
alankilayeah, well, if youtube doesn't accept it and that's your primary use case, might make sense to select a format youtube works with.10:59
TanvirIceroot, any idea?11:00
alankilaanyways theora is supposed to be fairly good quality -- and it's also question of bitrate -- so I assume theora can be downgraded to another format especially if bitrate is also reduced without appreciable artifacts (I hope)11:01
alankilathat is, artifacts that arise from the video temporarily having been stored in theora11:01
Orpheonthe artifacts with the mencoder line are mostly large uniform colors11:02

xroHi, i use sftp to transfer files between to ubuntu laptop... but i have a really bad speed (400Kb/s)... have you an idea why?11:49
bekksxro: Because of the encryption of _S_FTP.11:50
cfhowlettakhilblue: telepathy is the old messaging manager.  Not sure it's in 12.04 as I use xubuntu, not ubuntu11:50
dr_willisvicium\a: i also get a new hd to put in my linux laptops. that way i replace the wundows hd. ;) so when i sell the laptop a tear or 2 later i just swap the hd back11:50

vicium\adr_willis: Cant you just run a recovery disk though?11:51
vicium\aHmm sounds like a good idea though11:51

kirbeyI'm using the Live Cd14:14
greenityeah, but it was part of the app-showdown, just wanted to know if it will probably come to the repos :)14:15
dr_willislilo -  why are you using lilo?14:15
ubottulilo is an alternative [Li]nux Boot[Lo]ader. Note: it is recommended that you use GRUB on Ubuntu instead.14:15
kirbeyubottu: i intend to use it so i  can repair the boot ini of windows xp14:16
ubottukirbey: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)14:16
MonkeyDustgreenit  create a PPA and hope someone picks it up from the place where you make it available14:16
dr_willisi dont see how lilo helps that.14:16
kirbeysudo lilo -m /dev/mbr14:16
greenitMonkeyDust, ^^14:16
greenitMonkeyDust, well, then i'll just add the repo of the creator :)14:17

UICTamaleHi everyone, fresh install of 12.04 64bit on an AMD CPU desktop system with an nVidia 8800 GTS video card, and my resolution is stuck at 640x480 - both before and after I installed the proprietary drivers14:23
meoblast001my machine keeps complaining /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 is not ready or not found on startup14:24
meoblast001but then the machine functions normally afterwards14:24
MonkeyDustUICTamale  ubuntu uses its own nvidia drivers14:24
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VideoDriverHowto14:25
chroot_hi, how can i open a blog?14:25
meoblast001is this something i should just ignore, or is it a sign of a problem?14:25
ThinkT510chroot_: not a ubuntu support question14:25
ridcully1st_hello, my openbox config manager does not react on keyboard inputs, could somebody help me with that ( in #lubuntu is no one answering)14:25
UICTamaleMonkeyDust: ok, but why can't I select other resolutions?  My monitor supports many, all the way up to 2560x144014:25
mr_louWhat does it require to be able to play a standard DVD movie? I keep getting "Could not  read from resource" when I try. Been like that for years.14:25
chroot_ThinkT510: where should i ask this question?14:25
mr_louI have all the gstreamer codecs, afaik.14:26
UICTamaleMonkeyDust: And during the install, I had my native resolution.14:26
ThinkT510chroot_: try #ubuntu-offtopic14:26
chris_dchroot_, http://lmgtfy.com/?q=start+a+blog14:26

MonkeyDustUICTamale  yeah, a live session is not always the same as an installation, follow the links ubottu shows you14:28
UICTamaleMonkeyDust: I have.. I've also followed all the advice given on askubuntu and the ubuntu forums14:28
UICTamaleMonkeyDust: It seems this problem happens to quite a few people and no one's found a solution.14:28

FlowRiserHello, does somebody here use lightdm-webkit ?14:30
FlowRiseri'm a newb, and the documentation doesn't really cover all the things14:30
* mr_lou found the answer to his own question: https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/musicvideophotos/C/video-dvd.html14:31
MonkeyDustFlowRiser  start from the beginning, what do you want to do and what have you tried before you came here14:31
Salman  /help14:31
FlowRiserOkay, well i'm basically wondering what are the limitations of the webkit; Can it use flash or java applets ?14:32
ThinkT510FlowRiser: lightdm is a login manager, why would you want it to use flash or java?14:33
aaronyea skip the flash and java14:33
FlowRiserto make it prettier14:33
aaronEverything can be done with HTML514:33
FlowRiserso it supports html5 ?14:33
aaronI would assume so14:34
FlowRiserThe documentation just says HTML/CSS, and doesn't really help at all14:34
icerootFlowRiser: flash and java are non free software, so there is no need to use something like that and if possible try not to use that kind of software14:35
ThinkT510especially in a login manager14:35
kai__ there not "freeware" which means you cant just go in there and edit there code14:35
kai__however they are "free" to download there version.14:35
icerootkai__: freeware does not mean you can edit the code14:35
kai__Im not to great with the terms14:35
icerootkai__: they are "free as in free beer" but not "free as in free speech"14:35
iceroot!free | kai__14:36
ubottukai__: freedom is important. Ubuntu is as free as we can make it, which means mostly free software. See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html and http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/licensing14:36
FlowRiserI see, thanks :)14:36
icerootkai__: everything which is not "free as in free speech" is not good because its taking away your rights14:36
kai__so you dont like steam ext?14:37
icerootkai__: we would like something like steam but as free as in free speech more14:37
aaronOK, so from some research it only supports HTML, Javascript, and CSS14:37
FlowRiserAbout that javascript, i cannot seem to make sense of the functions from the default theme ...14:38

nunchukHello. I would like to repartition my current HD to dual boot Windows 7 and linux. For this, I presume, I would need to format it, losing the current installation of windows. Would it be difficult to reinstall it, having at hand the windows key?14:58
ThinkT510nunchuk: you'd need the install disk too14:58
icerootnunchuk: so at the moment you only have windows installed?14:58
FlowRisernunchuk: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/install-ubuntu-with-windows14:59
nunchukI would just shrink the ucrrent partition by using the internal windows utilities, but I want windows to occupy only the last blocks of the HDD14:59
nunchukiceroot: yes14:59
FlowRiseri see14:59
nunchukThinkT510: that can be arraged14:59
icerootnunchuk: there is a resize-option in the ubuntu installer14:59
nunchukFlowRiser: Thanks for the link, will take a look. ;)14:59
icerootnunchuk: which will resize the windows-installation14:59
icerootnunchuk: of course a backup is (like always) a good idea15:00
ThinkT510nunchuk: if you can simply resize partitions then there's no need for a reinstall15:00
MagneticDuckokay... how to I take a program and use its stdout as parameter to another program?15:00
nunchukiceroot: Will it make windows occupy only the final blocks also?15:00

BluesKajnunchuk:  mak sure you run all your windows updates before partitioning15:00
User_007The problem is: lightdm start -> it seems to freeze during 30 seconds with my login selected ( not even the wallpaper is loaded), i can't input the password. After the 30 seconds (without anything happening) it just go back to normal. So i can insert my password and login normally15:01
icerootMagneticDuck: gedit *.txt15:01
guckooh my god! I was able to mount it but now the home directory is encrypted!!!!15:01
icerootMagneticDuck: to open all files endiing with txt in the current folder15:01
guckoIs there anyway to boot from this hard disk on a virtual machine? Because that computer is in another country!15:02
MagneticDuckbut my real problem15:02
MagneticDucklike... find the status of the process whose PID is in a text file15:03
MagneticDuckthat kind of thing15:03
icerootMagneticDuck: ps aux | grep init15:03
icerootMagneticDuck: for example15:03
User_007if i do block the screen, and hit change user it opens a new lightdm on tty8, and the same problem happens again15:03
User_007does anyone have a clue about this problem?15:03
jeffreyanyone know how i can style xfce like ubuntu?15:05

icerootMagneticDuck: for more bash-questiions see #bash15:06

User_007FlowRiser, nothing else is written on the file15:13

ubottuaptitude is another terminal-based front-end to APT. You may encounter problems on multiarch installs (11.10 and higher) as aptitude cannot currently handle the same package with different architectures being installed at the same time. See http://pad.lv/831768 for more information.18:06

itoim trying to do a command line only install and buid it up for my laptop. is there anyway to install ubuntu without the gui?18:25
bazhang!minimal | ito18:25
ubottuito: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD18:25
bazhangito or the alternate cd18:25
bazhang!alternate | ito18:26
ubottuito: The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/alternative-download#alternate - See also !minimal18:26
zykotick9ito: use mini for a minimal environment to build on... alt gives you full ubuntu with a text installer18:26
itodid that. i installed it already. im just having trouble with configuring stuff like laptop-mode-tools and other little things and i there could be a way that ubuntu would do all of this stuff automatically18:27

Fyodorovnagrety, if you move the front of the ubuntu partition and it has the grub control you may need to reload grub to the mbr to boot.18:33

gretyIt's been a while since I've dug into the hd, but I know it's 100GB in size18:34
kalegrety: fdisk -l18:35
grety12.04 has almost half of the space, but I have zero need for the old Win install18:35
kalegrety: i would recommend a backup. clean the disk, make one large partition and put lvm into it. the you can dynamically resize your partitions. after this, restore the backup.18:36

andrew___Normally the I learned everything...  should have read a little more anyway.  I seem to check in to linux every few years  (ever since red hat and the begginning of it's commercialization)  I think i may have found a good reason to stick with it this time though if I can only get a worthy installation set up right....21:27

alankilaNedMan74: does the fan speed change at all normally when you use linux?21:29

HwkillerI wish you luck21:59
teklordI need a gvim config that jives with the ambiance terminal scheme (dark pink/purple).21:59
teklordSomeone must have written one.22:00
teklordI want it.22:00
Dr_Willisso you want me to go google it for you? ;)22:00
teklordDr_Willis: cant find one.  Do your voodoo, duder.22:01
Dr_WillisIve no idea what you really need.. theres dozens of themes at the various vim sites and forums22:02
Dr_Willis It is the top 100 rated color schemes on vim.sf.net as of Jan 20th, 201022:02
teklordDr_Willis: I didnt ask for dozens of themes, I asked for the ambiance theme that Ubuntu is the originator of.  I asked for a gvim theem, not some damn sample pack of theems that I dont want.  Are you an official supprut giver here?  Not very good.22:02
kevinhi all... is there a command to reconfigure/regenerate xorg.conf to "stock"? recently the file was deleted/corrupted and it doesnt register my 1680x1050 resolution.22:03
Dr_Willisteklord,  demand a refund i guess.22:03
kevin"it" being X when it auto-probes when xorg.conf is not found22:03
Father_Jackteklord, ask for your money back22:03
* Dr_Willis closes the ticket.22:03
HwkillerYou shouldn't have to generate an xorg.conf anymore22:03
teklordHow cute, you have a unified reply that matters to you.  Cute.  Kiss kIss.22:03
Dr_Williskevin,  the stock is to not have an xorg.conf22:03
nonhi all22:04
kevinHwkiller , Dr_Willis: well, for some reason 1680x1050 is no longer available.. xrandr doesn't show it22:04
Dr_Williskevin,  whats your video card?22:04
kevinDr_Willis: 02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation C77 [GeForce 8300] (rev a2)22:04
kevinDr_Willis: it's an onboard vidcard, and for some reason the nvidia binary drivers don't work (hard freezes system), so i need to switch back to nouveau22:05
Dr_Williskevin,  i belive you use the nvidia-settings tools  - im not sure how well xrandr does with the nvidia drivers. The xrandr and other tools would be for the Noveau drivers.22:05
kevinDr_Willis: yeah i'm using nouveau22:06
Dr_Willisits posible the nouveau drivers dont support all the features of the card.22:06
kevinDr_Willis: it was working before...22:06
Dr_Williswhat did you do to break it? ;P22:07
kevinDr_Willis: lol. i installed the nvidia binary and then removed it22:07
Dr_Williskevin, is there an xorg.conf file then? if so try renameing it.22:08
kevinDr_Willis: not anymore. i have no xorg.conf22:08
Dr_Willisyou restarted X/rebooted after removing it?22:08
Dr_WillisChecked your X logs? may be some info in /var/log/ about it22:09
AndChat|622356I have mold growing in my room. I hope i wont die22:09
kevinand im looking at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution/#Adding_undetected_resolutions and it says i do in fact need an xorg.conf , but i figured there is some auto-tool to create it, because i didn't create it the first time22:09
Dr_Williskevin,  but if it was working BEFOR when you dident have an xorg.conf    then you shouldent need one.22:09
Dr_Willisby default theres no xorg.conf - only systems i have one on.is when i install my nvidia drivers.22:10
kevinDr_Willis: hmm...22:10
Dr_Willistest with the live cd. see if it gets the proper res.22:10
Dr_Willisthen see if theres an xorg.conf on the live setup. ;P22:10

Anyways, I was also wondering if there are any task-oriented interface project for unity or if the plan is simply to let the users install the virtual-desktops package.22:17

Dr_WillisAn HDMI tv basically IS a computer monitor. :)22:28
inv_the drivers are there twice22:28

Dr_WillisYou may get sound out of the tv by default.. which you may or may not want.22:28

inv_Dr_Willis, what should I do?22:29
KynrekHello everyone22:30
exutuxkevin: you need to set output device, like vga or hdmi or so on, please pastebin xrandr output22:31
AndChat|622356So most 1080p monitors work with ubuntu? Without having to write your own driver or something stupid.22:31

Kynrekif I download the CD version of ubuntu can I install and keep my windows partition?22:33
the_dudez0rHi, is it possible to disable unity and simply run a standard gnome DE?22:33
the_dudez0rKynrek,  yes22:33
ubottuUbuntu 11.10 and higher use GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic22:33
Kynrekcan I use grub and try the e option then?22:33
kevinexutux: https://gist.github.com/320225922:34
the_dudez0rwhat e option?22:34
exutuxkevin: oh "deafult" was the your "device name" ....22:35
kevinguess so22:35
exutuxkevin: well I don't have any clue then , sorry :(22:35
kevinim gonna try the livecd thing22:36
Kynrekinv_ so do I just hold E?22:37
Kynrekwhen grub starts?22:37
the_dudez0rUbuntu is the greatest operating system ever, I use it everyday in my laboratories, and carry extensive algorithmical programs on top of it with incredible reliability and ease. For that, and much more, the_dudez0r recommends Ubuntu! Cheers.22:37
exutuxkevin: are you sure that you're using noveau?22:37
inv_if you can't get a display, press e and at the end of the line with "quiet" in it, add "nomodeset"22:37

Randomuser894739Hello! My girlfriend is running Ubuntu 12.04, with Catalyst 12.6 (Had to do a jockey-less install, due to incompatible hardware) and a Radeon 7850 HD on a 24 inch monitor using a resolution of 1920x1080, connected by an HDMI cable (native). Using the overscan option, the display renders out to each of the four corners of the screen, but after each reboot, the black borders are back! Checking the overscan options reveals that the slider is where it s22:55
Randomuser894739hould be, but the display is not. Moving the slider just an inch then sets the correct overscan option. It resets on each reboot! Can anybody point us in the right direction?22:55
