gvoDegorth: what error00:03
Degorthgvo: it points me to a log file, let me look00:04
gvotomreyn: I have no idea, I refuse to install 12.0300:04
gvo12.04 Is a piece of trash.  As is unity.00:04
tomreyngvo: jockey-gtk is the 'Additional drivers' screen00:04
gvotomreyn: Thanks.00:04
gvoI guess Degorth has found it.00:04
tomreyngvo: i'm happy with 12.04 besides of the general direction ubuntu is taking since i've switched to xubuntu00:05
gvotomreyn: I understand.00:06
Degorthgvo: I tried it again to generate the log file but it doesn't seem to be making it anymore, though the error still happens00:08
Degorthit's saying there should be a file called jockey.log in /var/log but there isn't one00:08
gvoSo to get to a terminal window, you can Ctrl-Alt-F1, to get back to a gui you can use ALT-F7 (maybe>00:10

keithclarkI'm trying to get the video capture feature of youtube to work for me but I get a Flash Players settings box come up that asks me to allow access but I cannot check any of the boxes to enable the feature.  Any way around this?00:18
Degorthgvo: I guess the driver isn't compatible with kernel 3.5 then since this only started happening when I upgraded00:20
gvoThat's not surprising.00:21
kantiankeithclark: of course, you might save yourself a lot of trouble by using a program from the ubuntu repositories called youtube-dl (that is, youtube downloader)00:22
kantianwhich runs in a terminal and uses wget00:22
keithclarkkantian, how to capture in the first place though?  I tried VLC but it gives me some kind of audio feedback and locks up my computer.00:23
tomreyngvo: the proprietary drivers usually take a while to adjust to updated kernel ABIs.00:23
tomreynactually that was for  Degorth ^00:23
cyphindoes anyone know why my HDMI sound driver won't show up in alsamixer?00:24
kantiankeithclark:  you simply put the URL for the youtube video in the terminal command00:24
Degorthso then is there a way to set up multiple monitors without the drivers?00:24
kantianand youtube-dl does all the rest for you00:24
keithclarkkantian, maybe you misunderstood.  I want to upload video.  I wanted to use youtube to capture video.00:24
gvotomreyn: Yep00:24
tomreynkeithclark: looks like he misunderstood. and left. this bug has been around for a good while, and adobe seems to have more important things to deal with.00:26
Dr_williscyphin,  you may want to check your exact chipset at the forums and askubuntu.com  for my GF108 (i think) i had to install the pavcontrol tool and twiddle with it..  then when i rebooted it started working.. not sure why, ive had to do this on the last 3 releases including 12.1000:26
keithclarktomreyn, ah, got you.  Is there some application that will record video for me?00:27
tomreynkeithclark: you could file a bug report or search existing bug reports for workarounds, if any.00:27
tomreynkeithclark: of course, plenty. i'm not so much into this srea, though. what do you plan to record?00:27
cyphini have a ati hd 7750 how would i find the chipset?00:27
keithclarktomreyn, just video on my netbook00:28
tomreynkeithclark: are you looking for something like a desktop recorder, i.e. to record what you are doing on your screen?00:28
tomreynkeithclark: or do you want to capture from your webcam or similar?00:28
keithclarktomreyn, webcam00:29
tomreynkeithclark: try cheese for starters, but there can be something better, i'm really not into that.00:30
keithclarktomreyn, no problem at all.  Thanks and I'll start there.00:30
tomreynyou can search the software repository for 'webcam' or 'video recording'00:31
Degorthapparently some nvidia driver is still installed on this machine since the X server control program is still there, how do I delete it completely?00:31

blackshirtluid, what your wifi card?00:35
addonwhen iam trying to run a bash command via terminal it i dont have the permission needed what should i do to gain it?00:36
tomreynDegorth: if it says "status: 0" then you: sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf{,.orig}00:36
Degorthtomreyn: E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?00:36
LuidWhat command is that? Sorry00:36
addonLuid:are you talking to me?00:37
tomreynDegorth: close any other software which is using the package management system, such as synaptic, aptitude, jockey (the add-on driver installer)00:37
addonLuid:for installing adobe flash player ./libflashplayer.so00:37
blackshirtluid, you can use lspci command? And look at neteork/wifi controller00:37
tomreynDegorth: and redo the whole line00:37
blackshirtLuid, maybe some broadcomm or atheros chipset i think00:37
Degorthtomreyn: status: o00:38
tomreyn<tomreyn> Degorth: if it says "status: 0" then you: sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf{,.orig}00:38

tomreynNastyNaz: first user does 'screen' to start the session, second user does 'screen -x' to join it.00:40

tomreynNastyNaz: wow, sorry to hear that ;-)00:42
tomreynNastyNaz: you know about man pages and all?00:42
tomreynNastyNaz: i'm glad i could help, though00:43
NastyNaztomreyn: yeah but usually they are too ofuscated to make any sense of00:43
tomreynNastyNaz: well screen is a bit complex, i agree. look for "screen cheat sheet", possibly adding "GNU" on the web, you should find at least two good ones.00:43
tomreynLuid: so sometimes it does not work at all after boot, and sometimes it works all the time?00:45
tomreynLuid: or does it fail after some minutes of working fine?00:45
NastyNaztomreyn: wow very useful, thanks.00:45
LuidTomreyn: Sometimes it works when I boot up (until I shutdown), sometimes it doesn't (until I keep restarting  until it works)00:45
tomreynLuid: but does it fail sometimes without rebooting while it worked for a while?00:46
LuidNope, works until I shutdown.00:47
tomreynLuid: do you know what a wireless kill switch is?00:47
Degorthtomreyn: after rebooting I get a black screen with the words 'could not write byte: broken pipe' on all of my monitors00:47
DegorthI'm in recovery mode right now00:47
LuidTomreyn: the physical switch? If not, no00:47
tomreynLuid: yes, a physical switch, i was wondering whether you accidentially switched it off there.00:48
tomreynLuid: sounds lame, i know, but it's happened to many people before.00:48
tomreynDegorth: hmm okay that's not so great. sounds like X crashed there.00:49
LuidTomreyn: nah, that is on. I boot up, it works, i boot up, it doesn't. Like there is a chance factor for it to work...00:49
Degorthtomreyn: so what do I do then?00:49
tomreynDegorth: you mean X recovery mode, right? so you get the low resolution and slow and sketchy graphical desktop without acceleration?00:50
Degorthtomreyn: it looks normal right now, I just booted into recovery mode from GRUB and continued with normal boot00:50
Degorthtomreyn: if I don't do that it seems it comes up with  the broken pipe, I tried it twice00:51
tomreynLuid: hmm, can you check whether you have the linux-firmware package installed? dpkg -l linux-firmware | grep ^ii00:51
tomreynLuid: if it outputs something then you already have it installed.00:51
Degorthtomreyn: it appears to get my resolution correctly, though it's underscanning a bit00:51
LuidTomreyn: error, unknown option00:52
tomreynDegorth: okay so X fails when you boot up normally, but not when you boot up in recovery / single user mode.00:52
Degorthtomreyn: it appears that way00:52
tomreynDegorth I think there must be more leftovers from the nvidea driver installed which we didn't remove, yet00:53
tomreynI'll look up a how.to on cleaning up that mess properly00:53
Degorthtomreyn: it also tells me that it can't apply certain options to the screen (leftovers from Nvidia's driver when it was working and I had it configured to run three monitors)00:53
tomreynLuid: try again, i think you had a typo there. it's dpkg, then dash and a lower case L00:54
Degorthtomreyn: would removing the xorg.conf help?00:54
anonbitanybody on know much about torrenting through a vpn?00:54
tomreynDegorth: you already moved it out of the way earlier, if you did as i suggested00:55
LuidTomreyn: it output something.00:55
tomreynDegorth:  <tomreyn> Degorth: if it says "status: 0" then you: sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf{,.orig}00:55

tomreynDegorth: okay, i'm having a look. this will take a while and i'll ask some questions. first one: you're on ubuntu 12.04, right? you are using an updated kernel then. does this problem also occur with the relase version kernel?01:55
DegorthI'm running kernel 3.5 with Ubuntu 12.04, I haven't had this issue in the release kernel01:56
Degorthin the release kernel the driver installed properly01:56

OdraIs there a way to make my mouse pointer move at a constantspeed?01:59
wilee-nileeOdra, in relations to how fast you actually move it?02:00
OdraRight now its "accelerating"02:00
OdraAnd it feels very werid to me02:00
OdraIt takes too long to start and too long to stop02:01
wilee-nileeOdra, meaning if you whip it fast it runs the same?02:01
wilee-nileeOdra, I doubt it without a hack02:01
wilee-nileeOdra, it is supposed to move the cursor in relation to how fast you move the mouse02:02
wilee-nileeOdra, or be adjusted in the mouse settings02:02
wilee-nileeand or02:02
Degorthwilee-nilee, doesn't that also mean the mouse stops as soon as the mouse itself stops02:02
OdraIt starts moving but then it drags02:03
tomreynDegorth: okay then my guess is that the noveau X driver you have is just not compatible with the kenrle you have there. if you want updated kernel an accelerated (i.e. non VESA) X then try the xorg-edgers PPA02:03
OdraThere is no "speed" setting02:03
OdraOnly acceleration02:03
DegorthOdra, maybe the system is lagging?02:03
OdraThat doesnt make sense02:03

Linux_Guy10.04 isn't that bad03:05
TomM2I see.03:05
SonikkuAmericaOh come on, 10.04 wasn't THAT bad was it? 10.10 was a fail.03:05
SonikkuAmericaAt least it wasn't LTS03:05
theadmin10.04 was alright, but it totally failed with, like, half of the devices for me. Sound, graphics, network :/03:05
* Linux_Guy has never had it fail on me :)03:05
TomM2Linux_Guy, I was on 10.04 then moved to 10.10 but flightgear was not supported at the latest version for 10.x03:06
Linux_Guybut everyone has varying mileage03:06
cfhowlettTomM2: in fact, I've had a whole lot less angst, anger and issues by adopting and LTS only policy.  But perhaps that's just me...03:06
SonikkuAmericaJust 4 kix I think I'll get all the other DEs as well.03:06
=== treaver is now known as TrevMyster
TomM2I will probably just use LTS.03:06
TrevMysterQuick question everyone : Is there a way to get netflix?03:06
b1tgl0wI'm looking for a list of distros that _aren't_ rolling release. Having trouble with google. Can someone provide a link?03:06
SonikkuAmericaYa know, KDE, XFCE, LXDE, FHDE, JWOFHDE, OIEHORIHWEPDE, and the like. :-)03:06
TomM2Probably upgrade every time a new LTS comes out.03:06
TrevMysterOh also I can't get NixNote to start up can someone help me with that too?03:06
SonikkuAmericabltgl0w: There's always Bing.03:07
TomM2If ubuntu was on KDE be default would Kubuntu be called Gubuntu? :P03:07
theadminTomM2: Actually, they are developing a Gnome-based fork now, I think the name was "Gnobuntu".03:07
SonikkuAmericaTomM2: It should be, now that Ubuntu's default DE is Unity.03:07
hydrox24b1tgl0w: try searching 'linux distributions -"rolling release"'03:08
SonikkuAmericaGnobuntu = "No 'Buntu.03:08
TomM2I am 50/50 on Unity because it's sexy at the same time it's ugly.03:08
theadminSo any help on getting magnet links to open with Vuze?03:08
SonikkuAmericaI'm of the school that says Ubuntu and GNOME are inseparable. Canonical has just broken my heart.03:08
hydrox24TomM2: I'm more than happy with GNOME-shell and would recommend it.03:09
hydrox24SonikkuAmerica: Indeed.03:09
theadminSonikkuAmerica: It was a sane choice considering how "featureful" the original GNOME3 release was, sadly.03:09
SonikkuAmericaNot to mention I absolutely hate lightdm.03:09
TomM2I like how Microsoft is implementing the tablet feel to windows 8, Microsoft copied Ubuntu it's quite obvious.03:09
TomM2hydrox24, I know.03:09
SonikkuAmericaUnity can run on my machine but GNOME 3 Shell can't.03:10
TrevMysterCould someone message me on how to get NixNote to work? It's something I really need. Also if you know how I can get Netflix working that would be great too.03:10
SonikkuAmericatheadmin: You mean featureLESS. I got the White Screen of Death.03:10
theadminSonikkuAmerica: That's why I took it in quotes ;)03:10
hydrox24TomM2: I don't like it, I think that Apple has it right, with having seperate interfaces for mobile and PC and then mixing the best bits.03:10
hydrox24TomM2: But this needs to continue in !offtopic.03:10
TomM2Does Ubuntu One sync from LAN? Cause it's easier to do it internally than externally?03:10
ubottu#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!03:10
SonikkuAmericaBut no Java or Flash on iOS devices and ::punches the Apple off the tree::03:11
Linux_Guynetflix does not support linux and so far I've not seen it run on anything other than a boxee box, android tablet/phone or other proprietary item03:11
cfhowlettTomM2: yes.  Uone will synch from every network connection.03:11
TrevMyster:( NixNote still won't work03:18

ertcould you help me? i'm attempting to set up a dual boot for my mac, but i can't partition my hard drive.  people have told me to repair it, but it never works. for obvious reasons, i can't repair it while booted to it, and booting to an ubuntu live dvd won't fix it03:32
cfhowlettert: why can't the HDD partition?03:33
ertno clue03:33
cfhowlettert: error msgs?03:34
=== megabitdragon is now known as zz_megabitdragon
ertpartition failed with the error: Couldn't modify the partition map because file system verification failed03:35
ertthat was when i tried it using the mac disk utility03:35
cfhowlettert: ...and?03:36
ertit didn't work?03:36
cfhowlettert: ok.  Well, if the mac partitioner fails I would say you have a fundamental hardware issue and should perhaps consider replacement.03:37
ertreally? i doubt it. i've had it for less than a year.03:38
cfhowlettert: assume you're following the methods described on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBook03:38
cfhowlettert: also, you bought used?  Cuz certain things will act screwy, e.g. my previously ihackintosh wouldn't display the windows partition when upgrading 10.04 to 12.04.  Finally found that even though I had formatted the drive, the previous osx/gpt partition table rendered win7 invisible.03:40
ertbought new03:40
cfhowlettert: hmm.  suggest you consult ubuntu forums / mac users  http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=32803:45
ertalright. thanks03:46
diamondsstartup disk creator will only erase my disk :/03:51
cfhowlettdiamonds: by design - yes03:52
diamondsstep 1: "Insert a USB stick with at least 2GB of free space."03:53
diamondscfhowlett: if that's true it's not reflected here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/create-a-usb-stick-on-ubuntu03:53
diamondsAlright well is there another option?03:54
diamondsbecause that won't do03:54
blueguy19hello there03:54
cfhowlettdiamonds: hey are you trying to install to the USB drive as a separate HDD or use the USB drive as a startup disk?03:55
cfhowlettblueguy19: greetings03:55
diamondscfhowlett: not sure what you mean by that03:56
diamondsI intend to use as live disc for gparting, then to install from it03:56
diamondsanyway are these instructions just wrong?03:57
cfhowlettdiamonds: add the USB drive as an additional HDD and install ubuntu there OR use the USB drive as a startup disk medium instead like a cdrom or a USB03:57
diamondsI have the same freespace (incidentally) as they do in the example03:57
cfhowlettdiamonds i.e. liveboot from the USB drive03:57
diamondsthat's what I want03:57
blueguy19cfhowlett: hi there03:57
cfhowlettdiamonds: ok so you want to use the USB drive as a liveboot startup disk.  Note: ubuntu startup disk creator *WILL* wipe that drive before installing ubuntu.03:58
diamondscfhowlett: so the tutorial is inaccurate :(03:59
diamondsthis one : http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/create-a-usb-stick-on-ubuntu03:59
diamondsis there any other way?03:59
diamondsI'm downloading the DVD version now03:59
diamondsI don't wish to delete the contents of my thumb drive04:00
cfhowlettdiamonds: so burn a DVD, CDROM or USB stick04:00
diamondswhat do you mean burn a usb stick?04:01
cfhowlettdiamonds startup disk creator to a 2 gigabyte usb memory stick04:01
joustindiamonds, if you are going to boot off of any media it needs to be clean, additional files could cause issues04:01
ubottublueguy19, please see my private message04:02
diamondsjoustin: it's funny cuz I didn't do this before04:02
diamondsi think I was booting mint (I just deleted the files from this usb drive :p)04:03
joustin  /shrug04:03
theadmindiamonds: Burn a USB stick as in "sudo dd if=ubuntu.iso of=/dev/sdz"04:03
theadmindiamonds: But, that *will* wipe /dev/sdz (replace "z" with the appropriate drive letter of your stick)04:04

Degorthcan anyone help me with getting chatzilla standalone to run on Ubuntu 12.04?04:05
theadminblueguy19: That's not a question you know, it depends on your video card. Install the propertiary drivers for your GPU and you should be good to go :/04:05
cfhowlettvokevybez: open the file properties for the drive, change settings to read/write.  Probably need to be root though.04:05
blueguy19theadmin: I have installed NVIDIA drivers04:06
blueguy19@theadmin but it still didnt work04:06
theadmincfhowlett: Eh, are you sure you want to change permissions under /dev? udev should be the only one to touch that04:06
theadminblueguy19: Well, I think you can use the nvidia settings tool to configure it now04:06
blueguy19@theadmin is there something I need to set04:06
vokevybezcfhowlett: when i try to it change it return this error ¨http://pastebin.com/ijJHfiVw¨04:06
Lollerbladermy ubuntu doesnt work, what do?04:06
blueguy19@theadmin let me try doing that04:07
theadminLollerblader: Details04:07
cfhowletttheadmin: plz correct me if I misspoke04:07
cfhowlettvokevybez: note theadmin's feedback04:07
theadmincfhowlett: Well, I have no idea what you actually meant, but chmodding/chowning anything under /dev will actually give no result (even as root), because the stuff there is *not* a regular file/folder04:07
Lollerbladercalling geeksquad04:07
theadmincfhowlett: If you meant something along the lines of "mount -o defaults,rw /dev/sdz1 /mnt" then yeah, I guess that's the fix04:08
OdraHow do I upgrade ubuntu?04:08
cfhowletttheadmin: thanks.04:08
cfhowlettOdra: what version are you currently running04:08
theadminOdra: Do you want to change the release to 12.04, or simply upgrade your software packages?04:09
vokevybeztheadmin: so i need to mount the device manually then?04:09
theadminvokevybez: *might* need to. I have no idea, automount fails on some devices. See also !fstab04:09
OdraI want to upgrade to 12.04, but my update manager only shows 10.1004:09
cfhowlettOdra: in your update manager, change settings to show LTS only and you should see 12.0404:10
Degorthcan anyone help me run chatzilla standalone on ubuntu 12.04? xulrunner doesn't seem to install and the program doesn't run04:10
cfhowlettOdra: can't update 10.10 to 12.04 directly.04:10
MonkeyDustOdra  backup and fresh install may be te most efficient way04:10
Odracfhowlett: I changed the settings but it still shows 10.10 as the upgrade option04:11
cfhowlettOdra: what monkeydust said +104:11
theadminOdra: Open "software-properties-gtk" or "software-properties-kde" as root. Go to "Updates", find the release train setting (can't remember the actual name), set it to "Long-term support releases only". Apply. Run "update-manager -d"04:11

OdraThanks. bbl upgrading04:13
vokevybeztheadmin:am supposed to add my device and resective mount points?04:13
theadminvokevybez: Possibly so -- depends on whether automount works for the device or not. If not, add it to fstab with the desired mount options04:13
vokevybeztheadmin: the device is supposed to auto-mount but these days i have to click it to mount it.04:15
theadminvokevybez: Well, I think that's about as good04:15
theadminEven better since sometimes automount is not what you want04:15

wingnut2626hi all i have ubuntu host with a windows xp guest.  What are the NAT settings to use so that i can use my wlan0 connection on the xp guest04:16
blueguy19theadmin: not able to setup x server display settings04:16
theadminvokevybez: Okay, add it like this: /dev/sdz1 /mnt ext4 defaults,rw 0 0 # That's the basic idea. "defaults,rw" is the mount option field here. Everything else should be self-explanatory.04:17
theadminBoogeyman: Depends on what terminal you're using. In KDE, it's normally "konsole", in regular Ubuntu, "gnome-terminal". In Xubuntu, "xfce4-terminal" and finally in Lubuntu, "lxterm".04:17
cfhowlettBoogeyman: we have to go deeper to open a terminal IN a terminal ...04:17
