maheanuuexutuxI have a clean external 1.5TB drive as the empty back up drive and the files I am trying to reccover are on another external  drive  that is also a 1.5TB00:01
maheanuuI am running the same, and have no problems, with my flash but my upgrade was only 2 days aGO00:03
exutuxmaheanuu: well you can it's enough :D00:03
gothActionParsnip: http://pastebin.com/WjYAENuL00:04
maheanuuexutux  I thought that it would be ok, but looking for the command line stuff I am going to need to do this, I was working in the Directory of Books Ebooks and Audio Books and apparently pumped it into space perhaps Jupiteer as I don't see the debris on Mars00:05
ActionParsnipgoth: sudo apt-get --purge remove gnash gnash-common00:05
ActionParsnipgoth: then:   sudo apt-get --reinstall install adobe-flashplugin00:05
maheanuuActionParsnip, U da smarted dood here!!!00:06
ActionParsnipmaheanuu: sometimes00:06
gothok I try00:06
gothI was actually thinking about removing the flashplugin?00:06
maheanuuActionParsnip, U my heeerow00:06
gothhow far is gnash?00:06
ActionParsnipgoth: not sure, could try it, its free00:07
gothbut flash causes major bugs00:07
gothso maybe worth a try00:07
gothalso flash stores a lot of data00:07

maheanuuexutux, does foremost recover mp3 files as a lot of my ebooks are audio ones and those are the most important to me00:10
ActionParsnipm477: skills are transferable00:11
ActionParsnipmaheanuu: why do you not have a backup?00:11
maheanuuActionParsnip, only one thing I have to say is I'm still dangerous here after all these sessions00:11
ActionParsnipmaheanuu: foremost may be able to recover data, but its not guarunteed00:12
gsrHi all.  My unity launcher seems to have disappeard.  If I put my mouse over it, I can still see the names for each program, and I can still click and launch - but its completely transparent.  Same with the bar at the top of the screen.  can I refresh unity without having to restart X?00:12
maheanuuI do have backups, but I had a major crash and by the time i got finished putting on every version from 10.04 thru 12.04 I lost all sorts of stuff and these drives are external00:13
ActionParsnipmaheanuu: you can go directly from 10.04 to 12.04 as it is LTS to LTS00:14
maheanuuI see that it does pdf's and mpegs but does mpegs inclued mp300:14
ActionParsnipmaheanuu: foremost does all files00:14
triadIt's Ubuntu good as server?00:15
maheanuuI didn't wanna leave 10.04LTS but after a serious crash I had to and Ubuntu kept telling me that I needed to upgrade until I got to 12.0400:15
Debolaztriad: Yes.00:15
zykotick9triad: not really... ubuntu isn't "stable"00:15
maheanuuActionParsnip, I done tole you i am dangerous!00:15
jyczykotick9: what are you talking about?00:15
jyctriad: just use ubuntu LTS, you'll be fine. Wikipedia uses ubuntu servers IIRC00:16
maheanuuActionParsnip, and not too bright either00:16
triadlolm are you serious ))?00:16
edgyHi, I copied my-huge.cnf to my.cnf and restarted mysql and it didn't come up, what's wrong?00:16
triadwhy they use Ubuntu instead other type of OS00:17
triadi use fedora 17 on my netbook and i think to set my server on ubuntu, because centos give's me some serious headache00:17
ActionParsniptriad: ask them00:19
ActionParsniptriad: http://www.ubuntu.com/products/casestudies/wikimedia00:19
triadright now i'm reading that00:19
gothActionParsnip: ok, your procedure didn't help00:20
=== jblp is now known as jblp_away
triadso i'll think i'll go for ubuntu00:20
gothActionParsnip: still the same behaviour, still hw accel deactivated00:20
ActionParsniptriad: why not use it yourself and form your own opinion....00:20
gothtriad: or use debian for server...00:21
Debolazzykotick9: Don't spread fud.00:21
zykotick9Debolaz: i'm not.  ubuntu isn't "stable" in either of the computer sences of the term... that's "fact"00:21
ActionParsnipgoth: remove all the packages you got in the output and then install the adobe-flashplugin package00:22
Debolazzykotick9: What definition of stable would that be then?00:22
goththat's what I did, remove with purge even00:22
zykotick9Debolaz: stable 1) non-changing packages 2) none crashing... </OT>00:22
ActionParsnipgoth: yes remove them all so you have zero flash00:22
Debolazzykotick9: Ubuntu seems perfectly stable to me then.00:23
ActionParsnipzykotick9: once its released it's officially stable :)00:23
zykotick9ActionParsnip: used to be.  not anymore, see firefox... ;)00:23
Cromatzykotick9: What disto do you think is stable more so than Ubuntu, the only one I know is debian stable branch...00:23
zykotick9Cromat: what i use ;)00:23
Cromatlol ok00:24
ActionParsnipzykotick9: ive not seen firefox for the last 3 releases00:24
exutuxI have 15 Ubuntu server running actually and it's all stable00:24
Cromatzykotick9: I missed the first half of the discussion are you having an issue?00:24
zykotick9Cromat: no issue here <i'll drop the OT>00:24
triadthere is 12.04 LTS SERVER stable version ?00:25
exutuxtriad: yes it is00:25
Debolaztriad: Yes.00:25
gothActionParsnip: that's what I did00:25
ActionParsniptriad: yes00:25
gothActionParsnip: I think it is some setting in firefox00:25
triadi had ubuntu desktop for 6 months, i know how it works. just asking about the server because i don't know how it is00:25
antonio_thank you actionparsnip00:25
gothhow do I change the firefox settings?00:25
antonio_my touchpad work perfectly now..00:25
gothI forgot00:25
ActionParsnipgoth: then no idea, your OS is 64bit and the adobe-flashplugin package will install 64bit flash, you could play with /etc/adobe/mms.cfg file00:26
Debolaztriad: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/server00:26
ActionParsnipantonio_: what was the magic bullet?00:26
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest96283
Cromatgoth: The alternative is to use chrome, no need for flash then as a seperate install00:26
antonio_actually I am sure..00:26
triadDebolaz: it has installation features, like ..to be able to not install any DE and so on ?00:26
Debolaztriad: The server edition is very reliable, stable, and generally one of the best server distributions to use.00:26
Debolaztriad: It does not install any desktop by default.00:27
antonio_i restart ubunt..00:27
=== Guest96283 is now known as Aitor
triadi;m not interested in desktop or any other kinky non-interesting stuff00:27
zykotick9Debolaz: lol - see debian or rh for a "real" server distro00:27
exutuxtriad: server edition doesn't has X00:27
gothchrome has some other issues00:27
gothI prefer firefox00:27
exutuxtriad: it's a SERVER! lol00:27
Debolazzykotick9: Debian is fine, though I tend to strongly advice people against using RH. CentOS is somewhat better, but still a real pita to deal with compared to Ubuntu/Debian.00:28
Alazare619anyone used x2go?00:28
ActionParsniptriad: you can install miimal ISO then install the desktop you desire00:28
gothGrecoo: hmm, so chrome has builtin flash?00:28
gothwhat flash/swf/whatever system are they using?00:28
ActionParsnipgoth: yes it will continue flash, firefox will probably do something similar00:28
gothanyway, I still have the same problem00:29
exutuxzykotick9: rh isn't free and debian sure is stable but it doesn' has a dedicated server edition and it's so old for packages versions00:29
gothfor now I'll just use dwhelper to download the flash00:29
exutuxzykotick9: obv it's stable...it's a bit old00:29
gothand then play it from the harddisk00:29
goththat never crashes00:29
zykotick9exutux: if you think debian packages are "old" you've not used rhel...00:29
Debolazzykotick9: RH based server distributions tend to require a lot higher level of knowledge about the inner workings of the system. If you want things to just work, Debian or Ubuntu is simply a lot better choice. And unless you are managing a large number of servers, there simply isn't any advantage *at all* with using RH.00:29
gothbut it is soooo anoying00:29
zykotick9Debolaz: i'd never personally use rh... but it's an enterprise grade OS00:30
exutuxzykotick9: I've used rh and centOS too and I have some debian server00:30
exutuxant they has old "stable" packages it's real00:31
Debolazzykotick9: "Enterprise grade" means nothing other than that they sell support contracts. Which Canonical does as well of course.00:31
exutuxso I close OT...00:31
exutuxzykotick9: and I repeat RH isn't free00:31
brandonjCentOS is free00:32
triadi prefer fedora for my notebook :)00:32
exutuxbrandonj: but isn't RH and it doesn't has support like RH00:32
CromatI never could get use to fedora00:32
brandonjexutux: it's pretty much red hat.00:32
ActionParsnipI'm using xpud more these days00:32
triadCromat: what's so different ?00:33
Debolazbrandonj: And you get no (Official) support contracts for CentOS, which means I certainly wouldn't recommend it for "enterprise" use. And then what's the point? Using it for the sake of using it?00:33
triadi like fedora because it gets installed very easy with XFCE00:33
triadgnome crashes at me i think00:33
triadin fact, i never tested on this netbook00:33
triadi think i might definitly move to ubuntu00:33
Cromattriad: Not sure, I don't know rpm really and it just felt uncomfortable.  Might have to give it another try but in the past I had nothing but hardware problems00:33
brandonjDebolaz: I'm not advocating it's use, but if you want red hat for some reason, but can't afford the commercial product, use centos00:34
Platypus-Manis there an easy way to check network traffic in terminal? I just want some basic like % / emgabit used, when I search I only find advanced stuff like packet sniffing, web filtering etc00:34
Cromattried: Most likely just bad luck on my part00:34
triadCromat: hm..00:34
triaddon't know what to say00:34
exutuxbrandonj: yeah but it doesn't matetr with discussion :D00:34
Cromattried: I'll give it another go now00:34
Cromatbeen wanting to do a nothing install on empty drive00:34
triadi'll check on youtube to see how it works ubuntu on my netbook :)00:34
Debolazbrandonj: It's just that I can't think of any reason why one would want that. Ubuntu just seems like a superior choice as server compared to RH/CentOS in all but some very, very specific cases.00:35
exutuxPlatypus-Man: iftop00:35
exutuxPlatypus-Man: or iptraf00:35
Cromattriad: Plus the ubuntu community has been more help especially for my Asus Zenbook...00:35
Cromatlol -- tried: The requested URL /pub/linux/fedora/releases/17/Live/x86_64/Fedora-17-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso was not found on this server00:36
triadfedora doesn't want you00:36
Cromattriad: see bad luck :)00:36
Platypus-Manexutux: thanks00:36
Cromatjust a bad mirror going now00:37
brandonjDebolaz: I tend to agree, but I wouldn't say Ubuntu "blows away" RHEL.  Debian might, though.00:37
CromatDoes anyone here use SublimeText2? Is it worth the 59.99?00:37
DebolazCromat: Imho, yes.00:37
exutuxPlatypus-Man: not at all :)00:38
DebolazCromat: I use it on Mac, Windows, and Linux and it's my preferred editor in all those environments.00:38
CromatDebolaz: Is the license good across all os's00:38
dj_segfaultHow does SublimeText2 compare to, say, JEdit?00:38
DebolazCromat: Yes.00:39
CromatDebolaz: I have a mac book pro at work, and I use only linux at home00:39
exutuxbrandonj: what is the difference from debian and ubuntu?00:39
CromatDebolaz: cool, then I might have to get it00:39
exutuxbrandonj: by using them for server?00:39
DebolazCromat: Keep in mind that you can evaluate sublime for free.00:39
DebolazCromat: So you can see if you like it before you buy it.00:39
Cromatyea downloading it now00:39
Debolazdj_segfault: Never tried jedit.00:39
Asad2005How can i get rid off disabled sources enteries aft dist upgrade00:40
Debolazdj_segfault: Given that jedit is written in Java, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that sublime is probably more snappy. :)00:40
brandonjexutux: debian stable undergoes more rigorous testing and auditing, imo, and it seems (to me) to be more stable running in a server environment00:40
exutuxbrandonj: for example if you need a web server... why you choose debian instead of Ubuntu server?00:40
cschriderI just installed 12.04 and now I am trying to get a netgear MA311 wireless card to work.00:41
=== aaaas is now known as aaas
DebolazCromat: Btw, you can install sublime through apt-get: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/06/sublime-text-20-stable-released-ppa.html00:41
dj_segfaultDebolaz: That's a safe assumption, yes.00:41
exutuxbrandonj: how I said above... debian is old, for that reason is considered stable00:41
CromatDebolaz: Cool I just downloaded the tarball00:41
triadI have 1 GB DDR3, 1 GHz, ASUS EEE PC Seashell Series X1015BX - how it will work ?00:42
brandonjexutux: debian isn't 'old'?00:42
exutuxbut it doeasn't matter with server edition00:42
CromatDebolaz: But the ppa might have unity integration by default00:42
DebolazCromat: Installing through the PPA has the advantage that it will integrate it properly into your system.00:42
cschriderthe card is installed in the machine but I don't think it was detected.00:42
exutuxbrandonj: debian packages are older than Ubuntu packages00:42
cschriderthere doesn't seem to be any wlan networking loaded00:42
Debolaztriad: Ubuntu should run fine on that. I have a rather old netbook with 1 GB RAM myself, and Ubuntu has no problems running on it.00:43
DraugauthAnyone know how I can team my NIC connections?00:43
Debolaztriad: Remember to install zram though. :)00:43
brandonjexutux: in debian stable that's often true, but the same will happen when you're on the third year of an LTS ubuntu release as well.  Bleeding edge packages aren't typically a concern when you're running a server.00:43
exutuxtriad: if you want a light dm use lubuntu-desktop or XFCE00:43
Artemis3Debolaz, the fact that something is new, begs for being more careful, older stuff tends to be better supported, you have to check and double check each component support with linux before purchase00:43
zykotick9Artemis3: +100:44
DraugauthI have a Pro/1000 MT Dual Port NIC and I would like to team the connections as the system is going to be a file/media/cloud server for the house.  Anyone know how to go about doing that?00:44
triadxfce much better. i'll think about it. right now i will still use fedora as desktop and ubuntu as server :)00:44
DebolazArtemis3: Yes, but Ubuntu tends to have among the best documentation available for what hardware is supported.00:44
Debolaztriad: xubuntu gives you a nice XFCE environment out of the box.00:45
exutuxArtemis3: we speaking about servers00:45
Artemis3triad, indeed, consider Xubuntu which comes with XFCE by default00:45
maheanuuexutux, can I use  -t *.* and recover everything that I have deleted in the past few days on this drive that I want to recover the books on, it would be better if I couls do that as I have lost other stuff in this circle jerk00:45

exutuxArtemis3: btw was all OT00:49
Debolazexutux: Context is overrated.00:49
brandonjVyk2: you're going to have to describe what linx is00:49
exutuxDebolaz: right00:49
Vyk2W4sp: a program that allows you to stress test your CPU giving you a value in Gflops00:49
exutuxArtemis3: so forget my sentence :D00:49

DrManhattanwhats the difference in CPU load for fakeraid vs software raid?00:56
W4spDraugauth: Is that's bonding ...? Have two NICs that seemling are one interface?00:57
Draugauthfakeraid and software raid are basically the same.  I think you mean hardware raid (where the controller handles all the raid duties) and fakeraid where the system handles the raid duties00:57
DraugauthW4sp:  Could be.  Intell calls it Teaming but yes where 2 or more nics act as 1 interface00:58
Artemis3DrManhattan, fakeraid in linux is not a good idea, to say the least; even if they had the same cpu usage; you are better off with soft, for reliability, and portability, or even options00:58
DrManhattanyeah and I can mix raid types with software raid00:58
jpmhI have 12.4 and have used SETTINGS?DISPLAY LOCK but it does not lock, why not00:59
DrManhattanie /boot=raid1 /=raid1 swap=raid000:59

DraugauthDrManhattan:  I hear ZFS is very good to use.   I plan on testing it out at some point but right now my raid controller handles all my raid duties instead of the filesystem/fs00:59
cschriderok, what am I looking for in dmesg?00:59
DraugauthW4sp:  Ok thank you00:59
brandonjDraugauth: I used to use something called ifenslave to accomplish teaming, but that was a long time ago00:59
Draugauthbrandonj:  Alright I will look at ifenslave as well.  Thank you01:00
ratcheerWhen I worked on big systems, we used a combination of hardware and software RAID01:00

brandonjcschrider: is that a pci or usb wireless card?01:01
cschriderbrandonj: pci01:01
W4spcschrider: YOu can see what devices are detected. That is, even if there is no driver it tells you it what hardware is available. Among other things, of course.01:01

Artemis3DrManhattan, soft raid is very forgiving, of course you will have reduced performance, but even green drives will work (albeit slowly, and you should disable that parking stuff lol)01:08

DraugauthBethy:  Do you have an android phone?  if so download wifi analyzer and watch the signal strength on the router.  It might be crapping out on you.  Can also use that app to find less clogged channels.01:21
Draugauthblazingtruth:  http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2012/05/17/how-to-dual-boot-ubuntu-12-04-and-windows-7/01:22
Bethyi have a iphone01:22
jribblazingtruth: install ubuntu.  During install you can choose to keep windows around.  Afterwards,  you can change what boots by default (see ubottu)01:22
jrib!grub | blazingtruth01:22
ubottublazingtruth: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 - See !grub1 for releases before Karmic (9.10)01:22
DraugauthBethy:  try seeing if you can find an app that will pick up Wireless APs and show their signal strength.01:22
cfhowlettblazingtruth: back up your windows data, take your time, follow the dualboot tutorial and happy buntu times...01:23
DraugauthW4sp:  How do you start iotop?  I installed it but can't find it with the Unity hub01:23
W4spDraugauth: Just sudo iotop01:23
DraugauthW4sp: kk ty01:24
DraugauthW4sp:  Any ideas on how to speed up a R6 array using a hardware controller?01:26
W4spDraugauth: Sorry, no. The ntop is a big one and requires a daemon to run, btw.01:26
DraugauthW4sp:  That explains why it quit.  What daemon do I need to run for it?01:27
maheanuuexutux, I am trying to write the command line for foremost, and do I need to put in the -h  after the -v?  Also, the drive I want to recover the files from is /dev/sdb1 and the one I want to use as the drop is /dev/sdc1 and I am not sure what all the files were in the directory but they were text and audio (mp3) for the most part.  can I use as the directory  *ebooks* as a wild card?01:27
W4spDraugauth: Did you install it? You are being asked for a password that you later need to attach a client to it.01:28
W4spDraugauth: I don't have it installed on the system I'm using right now.01:28
DraugauthW4sp:  Ok I'll work on it later.  Guess I should focus on trying to improve the speed of the R6 array ;)01:28
=== OptiWork is now known as OptiStanford
W4spDraugauth: Is it for a server, eg many io requests from different users?01:30
maheanuuexutux, I know that I have to be sudo to run, but I will NOT run it until I am sure that my command line is absolutely correct as I want to recoup as much as I can01:30
BethyDraugauth: there doesnt seem to be any problems with the router.01:31
DraugauthW4sp:  Home server.   will have 10+ devices connecting to it at any given time.   Trying to get myself caught up on what has happened in the IT world ;)  Also got WHS coming in next week.01:31
DraugauthBethy:  So the signal strength is staying steady right?01:31
W4spDraugauth: I trust you are aware that 2008 requires 2GB to idle. ;-)01:32
DraugauthW4sp:  Server has 8GB of ram.01:32
DraugauthW4sp:  the server is a Core 2 Duo X6800 on an Asus P5N-SLI motherboard with 8GB of ram (16GB was just to expensive lol) Highpoint Rocketraid 3560 Raid Controller, and a few other goodies01:35
W4spDraugauth: All this to proxy IRC on freenode? Just joking.01:35
DraugauthW4sp:  Well I am gunna use the system to setup a cloud service for friends and family, provide backup services for friends and family, and provide multimedia to the household.01:36
W4spDraugauth: Any chance to assist Bethy ? I wonder if it is a powe management thing. On OpenBSD there's a ifconfig <if> -nopowersave that does not seem to exist on Ubuntu.01:37
DraugauthW4sp:  Well I'm waiting to her from her if the signal strength is staying steady.   Not sure what else.  My laptop that had linux on it got stolen about a year ago ;(01:38
W4spDraugauth: There's a way to disable power management per device in a config file but can't remember where it is. :-(01:38
BethyDraugauth: the signal strength is nice and steady01:39
W4spDraugauth: That sounds exciting. Will you use pf as a firewall?01:39
=== `mOOse` is now known as m00se
DraugauthBethy:  Hrmm  have you tried loading a different driver for the wireless?   It shouldn't be dropping the connection if the signal strength is steady.  Let me look something up01:40
DraugauthW4sp:  Not right now.  I have a nice router to handle that and 2 24 port gigabit managed switches coming to play with as well01:41
BethyDraugauth:  awww thankyou, im new to Ubuntu, i really appreciate this ^__^01:41
W4spBethy: Do you ahve the Realtek RTL8192E WiFi card in you laptop?01:41
* cfhowlett bets she's got broadcom01:42
BethyW4ap: how would one find that out? :)01:42
DraugauthBethy:  Disable IPV6 on it and see if that helps.01:42
BethyDraugauth: how do i do that?01:43
DraugauthBethy:  Click on the network icon and click configure network01:43
DraugauthBethy:  Then go to wireless if memory serves01:43
Bethyah okies, ty01:44
Kre10s_make: avr32-gcc: Command not found... the only avr package in synaptic is gcc-avr. where do i get avr32-gcc from? is this an alias to something else?01:47
BethyDraugauth:  done it, deleted them, and re connected to the network, just waiting to see if it stops, thankyou for helping01:48
DraugauthBethy:  No problem.  If it doesn't we'll try checking the drivers and see if we can find you updated ones or not.01:48
BethyDraugauth: ahh, no luck, it done it again lol01:50
DraugauthBethy:  dang ok click the Unity icon in the top right and search for "additional drivers"01:51
BethyDraugauth:  i tried that and there was no additional drivers available. (a friend helpd with that lol)01:52
DraugauthBethy:  not sure what else then.   Someone asked if you had a broadcom.   Is the laptop setup for dual boot so you still have windows?01:53
cfhowlettBethy: broadcom: yes or no?01:53
W4spBethy: Could you let us know your WiFi card. Open a terminal with Alt+Ctrl+t and type in lspci01:54
* W4sp cfhowlett may now lose or win the bet. 01:54
zykotick9Bethy: "lspci | grep -i network" might show you less output (might not show wireless though :(01:54
AcidRainill say this. fedora 17 is nice now that i got the MATE-desktop super pimped out.01:54
BethyDraugauth:  no, just Ubuntu.01:54
Bethyjust a sec...01:54
AcidRainbut... i just dont like fedora. its not as good as ubuntu. what is everyones favorite flavor?01:55
AcidRaini want to install something better.01:55
ActionParsnipAcidRain: lubuntu imho01:55
AcidRainalso i will say this, ubuntu and windows xp suck at handling my wireless driver. fedora is epic with it01:55
AcidRainActionParsnip, why do you like lubuntu?01:55
AcidRainimma google it now01:55
cfhowlettW4sp: so it's broadcom then?01:55
ActionParsnipAcidRain: because when you sk it to do something, it just does it and doesn't dance around01:56
W4spcfhowlett: I don't know yet. We're awaiting the output of lspci with eager anticipation.01:56
AcidRainActionParsnip, what seems to be the difference between ubuntu and lubuntu?01:56
AcidRainim lookinng to do alot of perl programming01:57
ActionParsnipAcidRain: it uses LXDE as the desktop and openbox as the WM01:57
AcidRainthe gedit in fedora is even down graded from that of ubuntu01:57

kameronis it possible to have one machine provide an X session for a completely separate set of keyboard/mouse/monitor? for multi users at once?01:59
AcidRainActionParsnip, so its good as if not better than ubuntu, especially since it uses LXDE, which appears to be close to gnome201:59
ActionParsnipmaheanuu: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery#Foremost01:59
ActionParsnipAcidRain: better is an opinion, so is never concrete01:59
AcidRainActionParsnip, so what is your opinion?02:00
ActionParsnipAcidRain: lxde rocks, try it02:00
AcidRainhonestly, cause im rly gonna format now if u say its better02:00
AcidRainActionParsnip, then ill brb in about 1 hr ;)02:00

DrManhattanActionParsnip, stop: Unknown Instance02:07
ActionParsnipDrManhattan: then use status instead02:07
Shazer[2]i have downloaded Sublime Text 2, and I've extracted it now I need to run the binary.02:08
DrManhattanwhats the console app to config your networking02:08
Shazer[2]I've done ./sublime_text but it says no such file or directory.02:08
Shazer[2]Double clicking also won't open it.02:08
Shazer[2]Anyone have any ideas?02:08
ActionParsnipShazer[2]: are you in the same folder as the file?02:09
Shazer[2]ActionParsnip, yes, I am.02:09
cvrShazer[2]: I just downloaded and extracted the file works fine from here02:10
Shazer[2]Any idea why it would say that?02:10
Shazer[2]Hmm :(02:10
ActionParsnipShazer[2]: and is the file marked as executable?, you can check with: ls -l ./sublime_text02:10
Shazer[2]That's all I tried too.02:10
Shazer[2]shannon@ubuntu:~/Downloads/Sublime Text 2$ ls -l ./sublime_text -rwxr-xr-x 1 shannon shannon 7972576 Jul 14 10:07 ./sublime_text02:11

Shazer[2]But then02:12
Shazer[2]shannon@ubuntu:~/Downloads/Sublime Text 2$ ./sublime_text bash: ./sublime_text: No such file or directory02:12
ActionParsnipShazer[2]: does it run ok with gksudo?02:12
DrManhattanyeah sudo service stop doesn't work02:13
cvrShazer[2]: did u get the 64/32 bit that suits your install?02:13
ActionParsnipDrManhattan: use TAB to complete the service name02:13
ActionParsnipcvr: I think you got it02:13
Shazer[2]I got, Python 2.7.3 compressed source tarball (for Linux, Unix or Mac OS X)02:13
ActionParsnipShazer[2]: what is the output of:   uname -a; file ./sublime_text02:14
Shazer[2]ActionParsnip, http://pastebin.com/3TV9C2ke02:14
ActionParsnipcvr: you win02:15
Shazer[2]What's the problem?02:15
cvrShazer[2]: get the 64bit download02:15
ActionParsnipShazer[2]: you have a 32bit ap when your ubuntu is 64bit02:15
Shazer[2]I don't see a 64-bit link?02:15
Shazer[2]Oh, right nevermind xD02:15
Shazer[2]Right now..02:18
Shazer[2]Is there anyway I can get some files from my windows partition on ubuntu?02:18
dj_segfaultIn 10.04 (Gnome 2) is there a way to get X to redetect monitors without logging out?  I hook up a TV to the external port, but if I logged in without that hooked up...02:18
dylanShazer[2]:You should be able to mount the windows partition02:19
Shazer[2]dylan, what do I need to do?02:19
Shazer[2]I'm completely noob to this.02:19
ActionParsnipShazer[2]: Ubuntu can read NTFS natively. If you used wubi you can use the /hosts folder02:19
AcidRain2012ActionParsnip: burning to disk02:19
AcidRain2012ActionParsnip: oh its done ;)02:19
dylanShazer[2]: when you open your home folder, you should see something under devices like "64GB Filesystem" or however big your windows partiton is02:20
Shazer[2]Thanks :)02:20
ActionParsnipShazer[2]: could just use this ppa: https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/sublime-text-2?field.series_filter=precise02:22
AcidRain2012i wonder if there is a way to take every single bit of configuration related to a certain program ex postfix, ices, mumble, esc, and put them onto lubuntu. just in the even that ActionPartition's opinion is right about it, and it, i quote: "rapes" ;p02:22
AcidRain2012fedora was fast, but poor software center handling, and in my opinion, functionality was low on linux part, and it was hard to do normal ubuntu things02:24
dylanI had the same experience02:24
AcidRain2012ActionParsnip: with lubuntu, during the install, it is already failing to connect to the router. :/02:29
AcidRain2012fedora is better here once more, but i can cope with it02:29
ActionParsnipAcidRain2012: its the same OS as Ubuntu, just a different DE/WM thats all02:29
ActionParsnipAcidRain2012: so if you had that with Ubuntu, it will be the same in Lubuntu, Kubuntu and Xubuntu02:30
dylanThen again I was using fedora 14, not the new one02:30
dj_segfaultActionParsnip: I checked out Sublime since it was mentioned here earlier.  Very impressive.  It seems to have all the key features I like about JEdit, though the documentation is much lighter.02:30
vaks3anyone know how I can check what kind of vid card my computer will accept I have a desktop and want to buy a new one02:31
ActionParsnipdj_segfault: cool, if you like it use it :)02:31
vaks3but I dunno if its PCI 2.0 or w/e02:31
AcidRain2012ActionParsnip: ouch....02:31
dj_segfaultActionParsnip: are you associated with that project, or you just like it?02:31
ActionParsnipvaks3: ask in #hardware02:31
AcidRain2012ActionParsnip: so im gussing kubuntu is KXDE and x is XXDE?02:31
ActionParsnipdj_segfault: I don't even use it, I use leafpad and nano. A user was simply asking about it02:32
dylanvaks3: try #hardware02:32
ActionParsnipAcidRain2012: KDE and XFCE, but yes02:32
dj_segfaultvaks3: If you google the motherboard you should be able to find out02:32
vaks3thx guys02:32
pnormanFor some reason when I do apt-get no-install-recommends remove libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 it wants to *install* dbus-x11 as well as remove parts of postgresql. How could I find out why it wants to do these actions?02:32
pnormaner, -- in front of no-install-recommends02:33
dj_segfaultpnorman: Could that mean it thinks that package is no longer being used?  Can you try Synaptic and see what it says?02:33
pnormandj_segfault: the list for automatically installed and no longer required is a different list02:34
pnormandj_segfault: How would I use synaptic?02:34
dj_segfaultDo you have GUI or is this a server?02:34
AcidRain2012just cause its a server, doesnt mean theres no gui ;) just sayin02:34
IDWMasterHi. I was installing Ubuntu on a computer which previously had Windows on it.02:35
dylanmy server has a gui...02:35
dj_segfaultAcidRain2012: Agreed.  I can't imagine setting up a server without GUI but a lot of people here do.02:35
IDWMasterI used the installer provided to attempt to resize the partition02:35
ActionParsnipdylan: then its a desktop OS02:35
IDWMasterIt was resizing for about a few hours02:35
IDWMasterthen stopped02:35
IDWMasterand said that the resize operation had failed02:35
IDWMasterI tried to reboot the computer off of Windows02:35
IDWMasterit would not boot02:36
pnormanNo GUI. I'm not actually sure off hand if I installed with a -server image, but I don't think that's what you're really interested in02:36
rypervenchedj_segfault: All you need are SSH and vim, nuff said :)02:36
dj_segfaultIDWMaster: Did you intend to REPLACE windows or install alongside of it.02:36
IDWMasterThe drive no longer shows in partition editor02:36
IDWMasterInstall alongside it02:36
IDWMasterI selected that option02:36
dylanwhy does it need to lack a gui?02:36
IDWMasterThere was an error during resize02:36
IDWMasterand now all data on the drive seems to be lost02:36
cfhowlettIDWMaster: don't panic.02:36
AcidRain2012IDWMaster: more than likely u didnt. that screen is very tricky and has honestly tricked me in the past. fucked up cause i lost everything.02:36
IDWMasterIs there any way to recover it?02:36
cfhowlettIDWMaster: DO NOT panic.02:36
AcidRain2012it needs to be in big bold letters. WILL ERASE ALL02:36
ActionParsnipdylan: securty, resources and boot time are 3 I can think of quiickly02:37
IDWMasterIt is in big red letters02:37
IDWMasterI didn't choose that option02:37
ActionParsnipIDWMaster: use yorbackups02:37
IDWMasterResize failed because system ran out of RAM02:37
AcidRain2012IDWMaster: oh rly02:37
cfhowlettIDWMaster: reboot your ubuntu disk and see if the windows partition is still there.02:37
AcidRain2012IDWMaster: must just been to blazed :P02:37
IDWMasterIt doesn't show up in partition editor or Nautilus02:37
dylanthose are just reasons not to have one, there is no law that states "Servers must lack a Graphical User INterface"02:37
dj_segfaultMany sysadmins feel the more software you have installed, the more potential for security problems, and the more daemons running the same thing02:37
IDWMasterAre there any tools I can use to recover the data?02:38
cfhowlettIDWMaster: it MIGHT be gone.  Boot your windows disk and run windows repair02:38
ubottuSome tools to recover lost data are listed and explained at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery - Recovering deleted files on !ext3 filesystems can be virtually impossible, although methods that might work is some cases are described at at http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html and http://projects.izzysoft.de/trac/ext3undel02:38
ActionParsnipIDWMaster: foremost possibly, backups will easily restore the data02:38
IDWMasterThis particular system was never backed up02:38
IDWMasterI've tried testdisk02:39
IDWMastercan't find the partition02:39
ActionParsnipIDWMaster: why did you not run a full backup before doing something so drastic?02:39
ActionParsnipIDWMaster: is your data not important?02:39
IDWMasterInstalled Ubuntu on so many computers before, it's never had a problem partitioning02:39
* cfhowlett ...not gonna say it, not gonna say it ...02:39
IDWMasterIs there a way in Ubuntu to recover such lost data?02:40
IDWMasterOr should I contact a forensics specialist02:40
IDWMasterOr should I contact a forensics specialist?02:40
ActionParsnipIDWMaster: the default can, just install foremost02:40
dylanIDWMaster: try somethign like scalper02:40
ActionParsnipIDWMaster: you have learned the value of backup the ardest way.02:40
AcidRain2012IDWMaster: a forensics specialist can only find out what you looked at, and what you did. not the contents of files02:40
dylanyou want file recovery02:40
AcidRain2012after a partition that is. that is to my understanding what i read from a FBI book02:40
cfhowlettIDWMaster: imagine IT Tech Yoda: ALWAYS back up your data, you must!02:40
pnormanI guess what I want to do is figure out the dependency connection between libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 and the other packages02:41
dylanThat's why I have so many cloud accounts02:41
AcidRain2012cfhowlett: it would be: "Yoda: back up your data always, you must! uhmmmumm02:41
dylanUbuntu One, Dropbox, Pogoplug, SkyDrive, Icloud02:41
dylanand a personal server02:41
pnormanAcidRain2012: did you try the links that ubottu suggested?02:41
AcidRain2012pnorman: for what?02:42
pnormanAcidRain2012: whoops, wrong person02:42
pnormanAcidRain2012: although a data recovery company could likely recover the contents of files, assuming you didn't do anything like encrypt the disk or use fakeraid02:43
AcidRain2012pnorman: how is that possible? i read in the fbi book, they carry around a briefcase that can clone your hdd. then take it back to the lab, and pull up allocated asm data and hex positioning in some type of table and can accurately guestimate what you did02:44
Platypus-Manwhen Challenger exploded, they managed to locate enough of the hdd platters, and fix them up enough to extract data... so yeah, when you can't blow it up with rocket fuel your data can pretty much always be extracted if you throw enough money at it02:47
=== on3pk is now known as on24pk
IDWMasterCan this company do it? http://www.securedatarecovery.com/hard-drive-data-recovery.html02:47
IDWMasterData was lost on an NTFS partition02:47
DebolazWhich is why you need encryption if you want to really prevent someone from getting your data.02:47
AcidRain2012Platypus-Man: but the difference here is, that was rocket fuel, this is a repartitioning and format02:47
AcidRain2012not only a repartitioning, but a fail02:48
IDWMasterHow much money do I need to throw at it?02:48
pnormanIDWMaster: I've heard that recovery prices start at around $250-$50002:48
CerebralVortexIDWMaster: At that price you need to decide how valuable that data actually is...02:49
AcidRain2012IDWMaster: do you have access to tax payer money?02:50
IDWMasterI wish02:50
AcidRain2012yeah your screwed02:50
pnormanah, i figured out why it wants to remove parts of postgresql. postgis depends on gtk02:50

cfhowlettmalucious: does Canon provide a printer driver for this device?02:56
maluciouscfhowlett, i haven't checked their site.02:56
cfhowlettmalucious: recommended.  a Canon driver probably works better than a 3rd party driver.02:57
maluciouscfhowlett, just checked their site. no support02:59
[Toto]anyone give me a hand ?02:59
cfhowlettmalucious: ok.  stay in this channel and re-ask every 15 minutes or so.  also do a search for linux+ubuntu+your printer02:59

cfhowlettkexibq: yes:  vinagre03:02
zykotick9kexibq: i use irssi in a screen session remotely on a regular basis, right now infact...03:03
Calahankexibq just ssh to your work marchine and use irc?03:03

maheanuuIs there any sensible way to learn the command line?03:06
nabawethe Man pages03:06
nabawealso these webs are pretty good03:07
Calahanmaheanuu well each team you need to do somth from command line you learn it :P03:07
maheanuuThe harder I work the more in the crap I get03:07
Calahanmaheanuu what you mean?03:07
nabaweand the wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command-line_interface03:08
maheanuuI have NO team, I am the only one on an island that uses Ub untu and every one else uses windoze or Crapple03:08
nabawecheck the chart at the bot03:08
maheanuuI have a real problem with an external disk that stored data and the entire directory somewhere I have no idea where03:09
dj_segfaultmaheanuu: You can use the find command to find that file.  Go to the drive and type "find . -name thenameofyourdirectory"03:10
maheanuuI am trying to use foremost to recover all my books, ebooks, and audio books that dissappeared this morning and I cant make heads or tails out of the command line for foremost03:10
maheanuuIt ISN"T There03:11
maheanuuNothing is anywhere on the drive so I must be deleted.....03:11
booleanevening... looking for a cli based file indexing tool ... anyone ? ( besides doing a massif find and grep script )03:11
Calahanmaheanuu well maybe you accidently deleted files? Imho they aren't there if you cannot find them? Or searching in wrong location.03:12
dj_segfaultmaheanuu: Are you absolutely sure the drive is mounted, and you're not just looking at the mount point directory?03:12
maheanuuYes the drive is mounted and available, I will not write to it until I recover these files03:12
dj_segfaultmaheanuu: Good move.03:13
maheanuudj_segfault, I have no idea how it happened, I had used a cut and paste as I was doubling up on files that I had moved from a directory to a sub directory03:14
booleanmaheanuu: ensure that it is read only when mounted to guarantee no change03:14
* boolean is looking for a specific tool that does partition/file recover for ext3 ... gimme a sec03:15
maheanuuor should I say directories as I have abouty 300 gigs of books there03:15
maheanuuI am using NTFS03:15
booleanoh ... then look for any windows style undelete tool03:16
booleanthe net is full of them03:16
FreeFogHey there03:16
FreeFogAny one is versed in the Advanced Format specification from Western Digital?03:16
maheanuuI use NTFS as every one in my area and I am talking about 5 islands in a group and then the capitol a hundred fifty miles away and they all speak french or tahitian and not a one knows anything about linux03:17
Myrthhi, i'm trying to skip fsck on boot, and edited the kernel line in boot, added fastboot. but it still auto-runs fsck. what else can i try? thanks03:17
cfhowlettFreeFog: greetings03:17
FreeFogHeey there Cfhowlett03:17
FreeFogany of the Ubuntu IRC branches specializes on fstab and harddrives?03:18
cfhowlettFreeFog: what's your ubuntu issue?03:18
maheanuuThey have peeps in Papeete who use linux, but very few speak english and even tho I speak French I do not speak or understand technicial french03:18
booleanMyrth: if during boot, your system is requesting a fsck, you should let it03:18
booleanMyrth: there is a "dirty03:18
Myrthboolean, it is a "has gone 224 days without fsck"03:18
boolean" bit on the fs causing it to launch03:18
newbie|2Myrth: edit your fstab file03:19
Myrthboolean: it is more important for me right now to have the server up, than have the profilactic check, which can take hours03:19
Myrthnewbie|2: i can't get to it, because i can't boot the server03:19
booleanmaheanuu: may I suggest then you download hiren's boot cd, boot your box off of that and use the recovery tools there...03:19
newbie|2use a live cd03:19
FreeFogI am trying to check if a NTFS drive I use for backups is properly formated under the Advanced Format specification of Western Digital03:20
Myrthi have remote kvm, and tried remote mount and boot live xubuntu and dsl, but it just gets stuck or too slow03:20
FreeFogI tested with parted and the align command03:20
FreeFogbut parted (at least in my limited experience) has no way of teling me if the topology was properly set03:20
FreeFogI really want to know if I achieved the use of 4kB03:21
AcidRain2012from what i have seen im liking lubuntu03:21
maheanuuBoolean, the drive is a 1.5 TB and I have a formatted partitioned virgin standing by to do the dump on if I can ever get the gd command line correct03:21
AcidRain2012i believe i liked fedora just a liiiiiiiiitttle better03:21
FreeFogI see in parted a phi and logical out put but I am not sure if I achieved what I wanted03:21
[Toto]i have some problems with /etc/passwd03:21
[Toto]no one users password works03:22
booleanMyrth: then take a look at tune2fs to change the interval from X to whatever your heart desires03:22
Myrthboolean: i can't boot the system03:22
Myrththe only access i have right now before it starts fsck is grub03:22
Myrthgoogle shows i have to add "fastboot" to kernel line in grub, but it doesn't help03:23
booleanmaheanuu: another approach might be to use dd the bad disk into an image on the new drive and mount it via loop to see if you can get at it ... ( google search for instructions )03:23
ouyesany good tutorial about how to use the ubuntu shell, like grep and find, how to write regular expressions( man pages is lack of examples)03:24
jribMyrth: what kernel?  What ubuntu version?03:24
booleanMyrth: if memory servers, while the system does a typical boot up, doesnt it ask you to do the fsck or is it simply forcing it upon you03:25
maheanuuboolean, I do NOT want to do anything with this drive until I have run foremost, and sure could use some help on the command line03:25
maheanuuThat is all i am asking for03:26
Myrthjrib: 11.10, 3.0.0-2303:26
chocobogamesquestion. ubuntu 12.04 completely freezes on my about once a day. everything becomes locked. what steps should i take to identify the cause/resolve the problem, if possible?03:26
maheanuuI have the bad drive sdb and the new formatted drive sdc I want to do foremost on sdb and dump the files on sdc03:27
* boolean sighs 03:27
jribMyrth: what are you doing exactly to add the "fastboot" option?03:28
maheanuuchocobogames, what are you doing when it freezes!?03:28
Myrthjrib: googling "cancel fsck boot" recommends to add this option to disable fsck03:28
chocobogamesmaheanuu, it actually happens randomly. sometimes i'm using chromium, sometimes i'm in eclipse03:28
jribMyrth: ok, but that's not my question03:29
chocobogamesmaheanuu, nothing about it has been consistent other than that it's a complete freeze03:29
Calahanmaheanuu maybe this helps http://paste.ubuntu.com/1142313/03:29
Myrthjrib: oh, in grub, click E, go to kernel line, click E, add fastboot, click B03:29
=== 64MABRMYC is now known as greenkobold
jribMyrth: "click E"?03:29
Myrthjrib: to edit03:30
maheanuuchocobogames, I had the same problem with 10.04 and found out that Firefox was causing the lockups I downloaded the latest version after I deleted the old one and the problem went away03:30
jribMyrth: ok I guess you press e on your keyboard and you probably press something like f10 (can't remember) to actually boot?03:30
Myrthjrib: the legend on the botton says "B" to boot03:31
Myrthwhich it does03:31
jribMyrth: well I'm not sure why fastboot isn't working.  Though on ubuntu, there is usually a message present during fsck that says "press whatever to cancel" while it happens03:32
=== scottas is now known as zz_scottas
Myrthjrib: nope. Esc would cancel it in Mint, but in ubuntu it would just switch between splash and log screens03:33
jribMyrth: what filesystem is this?03:34
maheanuuCalahan, can I use $ find *ebooks* to find the entire directory03:35
Calahanmaheanuu maybe can also try locate03:35
jribMyrth: and you don't have access to the files?03:36
Calahanmaheanuu try locate (folder_name)03:36
Myrthjrib: it is a remote server, i don't have physical, access, only remote KVM. I've tried to remote mount live ISOs but it takes too long to boot. well i guess i'll try again.. might take 15 mins03:36
jribMyrth: how big is the filesystem?  Seems like fsck would likely be done by now03:37
Myrthjrib: 500GB03:37
Myrthmultiple partitions.. it looks like it tries to fsck all of them at the same time03:38
Myrthwhich would be so stupid03:38
=== tensorpudding_ is now known as tensorpudding
jribMyrth: only other thing to suggest is change your options in grub so you don't (or do; change whatever is happening now) get a splash screen.  Maybe then you can cancel with escape03:39
Myrthjrib: i've tried to edit the grub options on boot and add "fastboot" but it's ignored03:39
jribMyrth: yes, I'm suggesting something different03:40
jrib!es | pakl03:40
ubottupakl: En la mayoría de los canales de Ubuntu, se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español entre al canal #ubuntu-es; escriba "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y presione intro.03:40
Myrthjrib: oh i see03:40
jribMyrth: if that doesn't work, maybe you can change init to /bin/bash (not sure if fsck will still run then) and get access to the files that way03:45
Myrthi'll try to give it few hours for fsck03:46
Myrthtell you the truth it doesn't bother me that much.. it's a weekend and night.. but my wife is killing me, as she has some stuff there, heh03:47
tech1i have an external usb drive "/media/SEA_DISC" which gets mounted automatically. i can open files on it and move them around that drive but if i try to copy them to my home folder(like Documents) with Nautilus i get error: "Error when getting information for file" "No such file or directory" .... but if i copy with "cp" from terminal it copies ok i just reinstalled today and im sure the first time around last week i copied03:48

wilee-nileetrailbar, at login there is a dropdoen from a gear icon to the right of the user login.04:15
trailbarwilee-nilee: ok, because compositing does not work my whole ui is screwed and unusable at the moment, is there a way via command line or other to just restart x so i can attempt login again?04:16

Calahanvaks you interested only in shell or gui aswell?04:19
agentgasmaskJPeterson: I think dmesg does that.04:19
JPetersonhow do i ask the login screen to not clear the boot screen log?04:19
vaksim too noob to go shell only04:19
JPetersoncat /var/log/dmesg|grep checking returns ""04:19
Calahanvaks could bet ~5 GB needed04:20
agentgasmaskJPeterson: try the dmesg command insted of catting the log.04:20

vakshow much faster is linux on an SSD than a standard 7200rpm HD?04:20

jgcampbell300i been trying all night to figure out how to print from a 8 1/2" X 4" envelope with a inventory list on it ... can anyone direct me to a site that would tell me how to do this ...04:22

tobeushey all, I need help with ssh client/host config in ubuntu 12.04.  Is there a better channel I should check or can anyone help me out here?04:24
agentgasmaskjgcampbell300: what do you mean print "from" an envelope? You are trying to print an inventory list on an envelope?04:24
agentgasmaskvaks: i get 200MB/second compared with 35MB/sec.04:25
Calahantobeus i gues can try asking here04:25
deadmundtobeus, This is probably the best channel to ask.04:25
tobeusok, I'll give it a go.  I was trying to read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH/OpenSSH/Keys and was getting confused which commands were run on host and which were run on client.04:26
jgcampbell300agentgasmask, yes i am trying to print alot of lines with lables to the left of them ... but there is alot of them so i have to print length ways on the envelope and nothing seems to be working on my ubuntu machine04:26
jgcampbell300well to do that anyways04:26
deadlyninjamy kernel crashed right as i started converting a raid5 to a raid6 with mdadm04:26
tobeusI wasn't sure how to get the server to recognize a client as an authorized entity and make the connection.04:27
deadlyninjanow it wont mount and im not sure what to do04:27
agentgasmaskjgcampbell300: I know some guys in our office print with a hacked up openoffice writer page. They just kept messing with the margins till it printed right.04:27
Calahantobeus you mean you cannot connect to your server with ssh or what is the problem?04:28
y0om4aHOW DO I FIX THAT?04:28
agentgasmaskdeadlyninja: I'm saying a prayer for you now. Fellas, if you know how to help this guy, please do! :)04:28
jgcampbell300agentgasmask, do you know how to make it print sideways ... or from bottem to top04:28
deadlyninjaagentgasmask, i dont like the sound of that04:29
tobeusCorrect, cannot connect.  Tried copying keys using ssh-copy-id, but no success.04:29
agentgasmaskjgcampbell300: you are probably looking for the "landscape" setting once you do File->Print.04:29
minimecy0om4a: boot in recovery mode, drop to a root shell, then 'passwd youruser'04:29
caixais there anyway to fix video tearing in ubuntu04:29
minimecy0om4a: Like that you can get a new password for youruser.04:30
wilee-nileey0om4a, here is the info suggested by minimec http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/resetpassword/04:30
agentgasmaskdeadlyninja: I'm not saying there is nothing to do. just off the bat try an: mdadm -D /dev/md0 (or whatever your md number is)04:30
Calahany0om4a if you have not encrypted your home dir you can restet passwd with live cd or usb04:30
tech1wont he need a password to get root?04:30
tobeusCreated rsa keys on host, then used ssh-copy-id but got Permission denied (Publickey).04:30
deadlyninjaagentgasmask, mdadm: md device /dev/md1 does not appear to be active.04:31
tobeusThe home directory is encrypted, but i used the corrective measure described by creating a folder named /etc/ssh/user-name and copied authorized_keys to that folder.04:31
tobeuson the server04:31
jgcampbell300agentgasmask, that does sound like what i need ... you know i havent tried making one from scratch ... the envelope wisard is probblay screwing me up ... thanks for the input04:31
deadlyninjaanyone here an expert on raids?04:32
agentgasmaskdeadlyninja: try in ##linux too.04:32
tobeusIt appears my client machine has an encrypted home directory too since I find .encryptfs (or something like that) when I use ls -l in the home directory.04:32
tobeuswould that impact my ssh-copy-id though?04:33
deadlyninjaagentgasmask, will do04:33
agentgasmasktobeus: I know ssh is picky about the permissions on the directory where the keys are stored. the should not be world readable, and I think the default mkdir make it world readable, so double check.04:34
agentgasmaskegc: Hello.04:35
tobeusagentgasmask, so that would be chmod 755 ~/.ssh on the host, or chmod 755 /etc/ssh/user-name on the server?04:36
tobeusagentgasmask, and would that be 755?04:36
agentgasmasktobeus: sorry, shoud be 750 or even 700.04:37
bellorinrobertAlguien que hable español!04:38
tobeusagentgasmask, sorry, I meant to type 700, but my brain shot out 755 by habit.  thx, I'll give that a try.  So I'm using chmod 700 ~/.ssh on th host, just for clarification, right?04:38
bellorinrobertPor aqui04:38
agentgasmasktobeus: yes, that's what I have here. Also, do it on the /etc/ssh/user-name dir too.04:39
agentgasmasktobeus: If you are still having trouble, you can try to connect with ssh -vv and it may give you some more hints.04:41
ProtekNickzhi all, i change my login sound to a custom one and its still playing the drums at login? any clues peeps, i went to /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/ and overwrote the sound desktop-login.ogg and nadda04:41
agentgasmaskProtekNickz: IIRC it's in Settings->admin->login or session or somthing like that.04:44
agentgasmaskProtekNickz: You are talking about the drums that play when gdm comes up (the login screen)?04:44
logix_you want to replace it, not stop it?04:45
tobeusagentgasmask, I wouldn't expect ssh to succeed if I can't get the ssh-copy-id to work though, right?  That is where I'm getting the Permission Denied (publickey)04:45
tobeusagentgasmask, I've adjusted the permissions on the files and folder on the client and host as we discussed, but I'm still getting a permission denied problem.04:46
logix_ProtekNickz: I would be interested in doing that aswell, what's the method you're trying now?04:46
ProtekNickzagentgasmask:  yes i am04:47
tobeusagentgasmask, I feel like I'm missing something on the server-side.  How does the server know it should trust my public key on the client?  What am I missing?04:48
agentgasmasktobeus: Oh, you are getting the permission denied error when running ssh-copy-id? It's not that hard to just put your pub key in the authorized-keys file. Just cat key.pub >> ~/.ssh/authorized-keys04:48
agentgasmasktobeus: yes?04:48
tobeusagentgasmask, sry, miskeyed.  typing04:48
ProtekNickzlogix: as far as i've found so far, the sounds are in /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo ogg format04:48
logix_hmm, and what exactly happened when you overwrote it with another .ogg04:49
ProtekNickzive replaces 2 which i thought it was and well  they were not lol04:49
agentgasmaskProtekNickz: I'm on xubuntu here, but if I remember, it should be in one of the settings in the admin section of the panel menu. I would just click around a bit.04:49
ProtekNickzsame drum sound still04:49
ProtekNickzagentgasmask:  where is the panel?04:50
ahoneybunProtekNickz, I have not read any tutorials about changing the sound, so I don't know if you can04:50
tobeusagentgasmask, ok, that's probably what it is.  So I have to copy it over manually then?  I thought that's what the ssh-copy-id was for, and wasn't sure how the host knew it was a valid addition.  I'll have to get a monitor and keyboard hooked back up to the server again.04:51

tech1whats the du or other command to show folder/file sizes in a directory of only subfolder level...... so if folder "fruit" contained "apple" and "pear" -which both contained other files, i just want to see the sizes of apple and pear04:53
minimecProtekNickz: The file is /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/desktop-login.ogg Just have to change that one...04:53

tobeusIt's been forever since I got that box put together, so my guess is that I do not, so I'll have to get the monitor and keyboard.04:56
tobeusagentgasmask, No biggie.  It shouldn't be too difficult.  Should I turn on password authentication if the box is exposed to the internet for wan side ssh?04:57
ProtekNickzBRB maybe reboot lol04:57
agentgasmasktobeus: It's probably good to just have key-based in that case. Just remember that the key is much more secure if you set a password for the key when you make it. I know it's tempting to just leave it blank, but if our are facine the wan, it might be a concern.04:58
Draugauthok followed the tutorial for ifenslave and it shut down the network connections.  any ideas?04:59
dez82how are you all05:00
Draugauthdez82:  Ok just trying to get bonding working /lol05:00
tobeusagentgasmask, yeah, I used my more secure password for that.  thx for the tip.05:00
dez82I just installed 12.04 LTS, and am determined not to go back to winblows05:01
dez82so i thought I should join here for support05:01
agentgasmasktobeus: I should be arround for a little bit longer if you need help once you get the monitor and keyboard setup.05:01
agentgasmaskdez82: Welcome! :)05:01
dez82Thanx agentgasmask05:01
dez82expect a few "silly" questions from me over the next few weeks05:02
dez82i trained in fedora and centos, so my ubuntu is a little scratchy05:02
Keegan_hey when I type once in terminal and then I can't type the command password wonder why??05:03
agentgasmaskKeegan_: try control-q. just a guess.05:03
sirriffsalotHey! I'm having these streams of xruns in ubuntu studio 12.04, and I think I need a realtime kernel.. anyone able to confirm this?05:04
sirriffsalotAll I have now is the standard lowlatency kernel that comes with ubuntu studio05:04
tobeusagentgasmask, ok, thx.  Still wrestling the other equipment.  Should be done soon.05:04
tech1is there a command i can put in a script to make the terminal running the script go bigger/fullscreen?05:05
tobeusagentgasmask, I think I'm going to turn on password auth long enough to send the key.  Otherwise I'll have to find an old flash drive.05:05
agentgasmasktobeus: haha, yeah that should be good.05:05
tobeusagentgasmask, wow, this thing was back in the 10.04 days.  Going to work on updating that to 12.04 I think later.  Whilst I have keyb/monitor still hooked up.05:06
dez82hey, out of interest, I'm having to use the nouveou drivers for my nvidia8500GT as the proprietory dual screen support doesnt work. Has anybody found a way to get dual screen working with better performance? (3d etc)05:06
agentgasmasktobeus: let me know how that goes. :)05:07
ProtekNickzFor any one that wants to know which file it  is , for the login screen sound it's Location: /uar/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/system-ready.ogg05:08
ProtekNickzGot it :D05:08
ProtekNickzuar = "usr" lol soz05:08
ProtekNickzthanks for the help peeps :D05:10
agentgasmaskProtekNickz: Glad it worked out. Come back anytime.05:10
ProtekNickzi will and do :D05:11
tobeusagentgasmask, what was the cat command to append the new public key to the authorized keyfile again?05:12
iToastI got a ubuntu server05:12
iToastand I want to back it up in such a way05:12
iToastI can just take the backup from a 10.4 server and bring it to a 12.4 server05:13
iToastand still use things like "apt-get upgrade" and it'l reconize all the installed apps from the backups05:13
agentgasmasktobeus: just cat the public key file to the authorized_keys file. So: cat key.pub >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys05:13
iToastI know I need to backup /home /etc /var05:14
iToastAny other parts of my FS?05:14
agentgasmaskiToast: Is there a question in there somewhere? and don't be afrade of a big block of text. It's better then having a bunch of broken up posts.05:14
goddardanyone know the KDE overall buttons ?05:14
iToastagentgasmask:  I'm after making a backup of my ubuntu server05:14
agentgasmaskiToast: do you want to have all the same software installed?05:15
iToastthat I can take to a new ubuntu install of a updated version05:15
iToastagentgasmask:  yes05:15
iToastphrakt: !05:15
agentgasmaskOk. you are looking for dpkg --get-selection on the old server.05:15
tobeusagentgasmask, awesome, that did it!05:15
iToastOk, what directorys should I backup?05:16
agentgasmasktobeus: Sweet! :) I guess once you had the password setup, you could just have used ssh-copy-id. DOGH!05:16
tobeusagentgasmask, so for future reference, is there really a purpose to ssh-copy-id when using an encrypted home directory?  I tried using that after enabling password login.05:16
ProtekNickzok another ponder :D, has anyone got a nice tutorial on how to back up your machine, like what to back up and what not to ect..? if so i would apriciate it05:16
agentgasmasktobeus: oh, and it still failed?05:17
tobeusagentgasmask, I tried and it said it worked, but after I disabled passwords, it gave me the Permission Denied (publickey) problem when I ssh'd in.05:17
iToastAnyone got a idea on what  I should do...?05:17
iToastWhat directories should I backup...?05:17
iToastI know /var /etc /home05:17
agentgasmasktobeus: I don't have any experiance with encrypted home dirs. But I would think that once it was mounted, it would act just like a normal filesystem to the programs accessing it.05:18
agentgasmaskiToast: once sec...05:18
tobeusagentgasmask, it was probably my mistake somewhere.05:18
Platypus-ManiToast: you could use CloneZilla and back it all up05:18
iToastPlatypus-Man: No downtime.05:18
agentgasmasktobeus: Oh well. Water under the bridge and all.05:18
iToastEverything needs to happen while the machine keeps going.05:18
tobeusagentgasmask, I'm guessing that ssh-copy-id tried to copy the .pub keyfile to the default location on the host of ~/.ssh rather than the new location /etc/ssh/user-name which is where it has to be for the encrypted filesystem.  Either way, thx for the help!05:19
iToastAnyone got any idea >_<05:19
iToastI know I can do a more complex backup, so dump all databases copy all files05:19
iToastand copy my home directory and start fresh05:19
agentgasmasktobeus: no problem. Glad all my previouse pain could be usefull to someone else.05:19
JPeterson"sudo apt-get <anything>" crash without message. how to trace the problem?05:19
iToastJPeterson: Error logs!05:20
tobeusagentgasmask, yep, looks like it.  I have a brand new file called authorized_keys in the ~/.ssh folder for my encrypted file with the pub key appended.  That's what it did.05:20
JPetersoniToast: where?05:20
iToastJPeterson: /var/log I believe.05:20
tobeusagentgasmask, lol, thx again.  ttyl.05:20

iToastagentgasmask: thats it"05:22
iToastProtekNickz: One of the strange things that happened was a cable started moving in my room on its own...05:23
agentgasmaskiToast: first on old server run: dpkg --get-selections > selections.txt05:23
iToastviolently. I recorded, amazingly that file went corrupt minutes later...05:23
agentgasmaskiToast: Then, copy that file to the new server and run: dpgk --set-selections < selections.txt05:23
iToastagentgasmask: and just copy the other directorys?05:24
ProtekNickzdont worry about it, prolly someone try to steal your copper wire to weight it in lol05:24

KatsumeBliskcfhowlett: Thanks. I actually figured out a separate problem that made that question irrelevant. I installed an app from source since it's not in the repos, but it wasn't showing in the dash because it was placed in a weird spot. I found it.07:59

bekksJPeterson: What do you expect?08:59
JPetersonbekks: the stdout stderr from "apt-get"09:00
glebihanJPeterson, if you're going to ignore everything that's being told to you, why do you bother asking for help ?09:00
JPetersonglebihan: no offence but i'm asking for advanced help09:00
bekksJPeterson: apt-get isnt a valid shell, but a valid executable. The chroot command doesnt know the difference, and just executes apt-get, ,which DOESNT give you a shell where you could see output at all.09:00
glebihanJPeterson, and you already got 2 answers...09:00
bekksglebihan: err, 3.09:00
glebihanbekks, yes 3 now09:00
JPetersonbekks: thanks for the lecture. can you answer how to redirect stdout now09:01
bekksJPeterson: Unless you extend apt-get to have to code to act as a shell, there is now way. Use a proper shell like bash instead of apt-get in your command sample.09:02

amh345is linux a valid format of disk?  re: fstab09:04

cfhowlettJosh9449: not sure.  Ask in this channel how to force the hardware switch on in xubuntu.09:05
bekksglebihan: Sounds like overkill ;) dpkg --get-selection, --set-selection should work too :) But reinstalling is more easy.09:05
JPetersonbekks. the purpose is to run apt-get on /mnt09:05

Josh9449I mean force reset09:06
amh345ok linux is not a valid file system type09:06

cfhowlettJosh9449: did the network EVER work?  say during live boot installation?09:11
Josh9449Yea but it never stayed connected for long09:11

=== eboyjr is now known as eboy
TJ-Josh9449: press Alt+F2, at the command prompt type "gksudo mousepad /etc/network/interfaces", type your password, then delete the entire every line of that file after "iface lo inet loopback" - leave that line in place. Save the file, then restart the PC09:21
TJ-Josh9449: So the file will just have "auto lo"  and "iface lo inet loopback" and those lines before those which are comments (start with the # character)09:22

dygeyTJ-" yeah, cd, echo...tells me nothing. this is the first time i'm seeling linux09:24
TJ-Josh9449: Once the text editor is started and you can see the contents of the file, delete everything from "# The primary network interface" to the end of the file09:24
TJ-Josh9449: Then save the file, exit the text editor, and restart the PC09:24
Josh9449Nothing happened when i typed in the command09:25
TJ-dygey: "echo $HOME" should report the path to the current user's home directory. "cd ~" will change to the home directory. the "~" command is short for $HOME in most shells on Unux/Linux09:25
bekksdygey: cd /home/myusername09:25

TJ-Josh9449: wait .. I'm asking others to confirm this information for you - that mousepad is the text editor on Xubuntu09:26

Josh9449Oh ok09:27
sachael_TJ-: mousepad is the text editor09:27
dygeybekks: thanks.09:27
TJ-sachael: thank you09:27
W4spTJ-: Mousepad is but from command line try nano09:28
=== sachael_ is now known as sahaquiel
TJ-Josh9449: ok, you probably typed the command slightly wrong09:28
TJ-W4sp: trying not confuse Josh with nano!09:28
Josh9449Tell me it again?09:28
TJ-Josh9449: press Alt+F2, type "gksudo mousepad" ... that should start the GUI text editor09:28
W4spTJ-: I tell you so it's in your hands.09:28
TJ-W4sp: I'm reserving that for the fall-back position :p09:29
Josh9449i typed it in09:29
Josh9449it asked for ,y pass and i typd that in too09:29
Josh9449nothing happened09:30
TJ-Josh9449: oh! so that means mousepad is missing ... no worries, we'll do it from a terminal instead09:30
Josh9449oh -ok :D09:30
cc11rocks_1Use the terminal to "enable" mousepad :P (sudo apt-get install mousepad)09:30
TJ-Josh9449: at a terminal command line type "sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces" - this should bring up a text based editor with the file loaded ready to edit09:31
cc11rocks_1Josh9449: Ignore me, listen to TJ-...While what I'm saying is valid, it was more of a joke...09:31
TJ-cc11rocks: :p09:31
Josh9449ok lol09:31
TJ-cc11rocks: We could also just reinstall the entire OS :D09:31
Josh9449this window popped up09:31
cc11rocks_1TJ- True, true :P09:32
TJ-Josh9449: what's the window?09:32
TJ-Josh9449: does it show the file contents that you pasted to pastebin?09:32
Josh9449yes it dfoes09:32
Josh9449it does09:32
TJ-Josh9449: Yay! OK ... now the navigation keys are a little strange so take your time.09:33
Josh9449i think i understand it... lol09:33
TJ-Josh9449: first, move the cursor down until it is on the line "# The primary network interface"09:33
Josh9449ok im on it09:33
TJ-Josh9449: Now we're going to 'kill' that line and everything after it by repeatedly pressing Ctrl+K until they are all gone09:34

Josh9449THANKS TJ :DDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!09:38
TJ-cc11rocks:  your log file doesn't reveal anything obvious, we'll need to dig further when I return, unless someone else can help in the menatime09:39
cc11rocks_1When do you return?09:39
emmancan anyone help me to identify the problem with wireless please?09:39
cc11rocks_1I don't mind posting more/all of the log09:39

cc11rocks_1I do need to go to bed ASAP though (within 20 min)09:40
cc11rocks_1Be back in 10ish?09:40
cc11rocks_1Tj- ?09:40
W4spdygey: That's not a question. What's the problem? I don't get it.09:40
TJ-cc11rocks:  look for lines in /var/log/syslog that come from "wpa_supplicant" - that's the process responsible for doing encrypted WiFi connections09:41
cc11rocks_1Okay, thanks...What do I do with them?09:41
dygeyW4sp, the question is that i don't know how to do that. i can't paste anything in the home folder and also, i can't find the fonts folder09:41
W4spdygey: YOu probably haven't downloaded a folder but an archive file. What did you use to download the file/folder?09:42
dygeyW4sp: indeed, it's an archive. i've extracted it in a separate folder, i can see now what's inside of it, but i have to copy two folders in other folders of my system.that i can't do,don't know why and how09:44
Papahelooo guys i have an adsl pppoe connection i get fast downloads but browsing is very slow in ubuntu 12.0409:44
heisenminkPapa: perhaps port80 is limited by your ISP09:45
Papai am getting this problem in ubuntu based distros only 12.0409:46
cc11rocksTJ- : http://pastebin.com/ezDf9Bph << There's what I found that looks like errors and such09:46
Papa11.10 worked fine for me09:46
DraugauthHow can you tell if your network drivers support ethtool?09:46
cc11rocks_1I'm afk now for about 10 min09:47
cc11rocksfor shower09:47
W4spdygey: No problem. If you say 'see' you probably use  a file manager that shows you the content of the archive. What we need to do is to extract the archive and copy the folder(s) to the location that it requires. I assume therefore you know where the downloaded archive is. Can you tell me from where you downloaded conky so I can do the same?09:47
Papahey why i am getting this problem in ubuntu and ubuntu based distros09:47
luftikussWhat DEB program packages provide the Network File System?09:48
DraugauthPapa:  Check your proxy settings.  I don't have dsl but webbrowsing is fine for me.09:48
dygeyW4sp: it shows me, but i've extracted them also. the instructions, download links and how to are here http://askubuntu.com/questions/134252/is-there-any-alternative-for-windows-gadgets-in-ubuntu09:49
Draugauthluftikuss:  you talking about NTFS?  They all should.  If ZFS then the solaris group unless you add in support for it.09:49
DraugauthHow can you tell if your network drivers support ethtool?09:49
JPetersonhow do i install a deb file wirhout dpkg, ie extract and copy09:51
luftikussDraugauth: I am not talking about NTFS. I am alking about RFC3530.09:51
Draugauthluftikuss:  Ah that I don't know.  I would have to google it.09:51
Papai have dual booted fedora and ubuntu my browsing is fast in fedora ubuntu cannot load a simple website09:51
DraugauthPapa:  Again like I said check your proxy settings09:52
Papai did this sudo pppoeconf but it gets hanged :O09:52
Draugauthluftikuss:  http://nfs.sourceforge.net/ says it is supported in kernels 2.6 and later09:53
W4spdygey: I cannot find a directly linked download location related to conky. That said there is a google search link. The first record on the google results leads me to http://puna.upf.edu/node/44 Is that what you want to do? Installing conky?09:53
luftikussDraugauth: Thank you verymuch for your help.09:54
heisenminkPapa: is your ubuntu running directly off the hard drive? Which browser are you using?09:54
Draugauthluftikuss:  Anytime09:54
Papai am using firefox 14.0.1 yea it is in my dev/sda109:55
heisenminkPapa: try if chrome is any faster09:56
=== logan_ is now known as Guest40752
dygeyW4sp: if you paste the link i gave you in the browser, it will take you to a askubuntu.com page.at the middle of that page (approx.) is conky and the install tips an how-to. yes, i'm trying to install conky, in 12.04 LTS09:56
Papayeaa tried but idk what problem is this website are not opening fully status bar just keeps revolving page is half loaded :O09:57
Papai cannot explain how much slow browsing is :O09:57
DraugauthPapa:  p r o x y   s e t t i n g s     Check them.09:57
W4spdygey: OK, is there anything that would have suggested you not to use 'sudo apt-get install conky'?09:57
userHello! I have an issue with Ardour. Someone can help?09:58
caeli have a small issue after upgrading from xubuntu 11.04 to 11.10,  its no longer loading my broadcom based WLAN and intel based LAN at boot. ( i'm running 11.10 on an dell inspiron 1300 if that helps)09:58
Papai disabled ipv6 still no result09:58
cc11rocksTJ- If you are back,09:59
cc11rocks_1I'm ready09:59
Draugauthcael:  There is a problem from what I'm hearing with broadcom based wireless nics09:59
=== logan__ is now known as Guest79758
dygeyis that simple. i copyed .conky folder, but can't paste it into home directory (also,where is the home folder for sure?) second, i've copyed the fonts, but where is the Home/.fonts/ folder to paste them to?09:59
W4spdygey: Also, I can guide you on how to copy those directories.09:59
DraugauthPapa:  And what about the proxy settings?  which have nothing to do with ipv6 or chrome etc.09:59
caelDraugauth, i'm used to manually modprob'ing broadcom devices (case in point raspbian (debian for RaspberryPi. having to manually probe the audio) but i didnt have a issue before with the laptop's wifi under 11.0410:00
W4spdygey: OK, to identify where your home folder is you can use 'echo $HOME' without the quotes. The outpu tis your home folder.10:00
caeland papa what do you mean "slow" ? like pages take forever to resolve/load?10:00
Draugauthcael:  Yeah it seems to be a recen problem so I'm guessing it happened after 11.0410:00
dygeyW4sp: no intention to offend you, but sudo,apt,and the rest sounds SF to me. this is the first time i see linux10:00
tech1ok iv made a variable containing date and tested it with "echo $ymd" but "mkdir test$ymd" just creates a folder called test?10:01
eboyAlways use echo and variables with double quotes. Like this: echo "$ymd"10:01
Papayea cael10:01
W4spdygey: To do that use Ctrl+Alt+t to get a terminal and type in the command  'echo $HOME' .10:01
dygeyW4sp:ok, did it10:02
caelare you using your default ISP's DNS? i had rather slow loading on alot of sites on my isp's own. i get better results using Google's OpenDNS.10:02
caeland Draugauth , my bad lspci shows the LAN is also Broadcom based10:02
Papahey i tried to change the dns sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf changed it to google dn but if i reboot it changes to my original isp again :O10:03
Draugauthcael:  Yeah someone earlier said there was a problem with broadcom.   I saw it on google in passing but didn't read up on it sorry10:03
caelahh ok.10:03
caeland yea i've noticed broadcom isnt really  OpenSource Friendly that much.10:03
W4spdygey: The output is your home folder. Now we need to find out what two directories you want to copy. But to be perfectly honest with you, this command will get you there much quicker... 'sudo apt-get install conky' You will be asked for your password and if you want to install conky. Press yes and you get what you want.10:04
ryan1995Can ubuntu os get viruses etc?10:04
caelyes, but Linux malware/viruses arent as Widespread as Windows viruses10:05
Nkos231i know this is not the right channel but i suppose many university students will be here. I want a journal from csiro publishing but my insitute doesn't have access. Can anyone download a paper for me if he has access to this journal?10:05
Draugauthryan1995: Yes but the chances of it happening are very very low.10:05
cc11rocks_1ryan1995 - Yes, just like any other OS. Though with kernel changes and other upgraded software, along with the low market share of GNU/Linux OS's, you are very much not likely to get one10:05
caelmuch like the few for Mac OSX, linux ones still need User intervention.10:05
k1lNkos231: better ask offtopic stuff in the offtopic channel10:06
caelone cant just "slip" in.10:06
W4spdygey: It is also the right way to do it. If you install with apt-get it logs what has been installed. Later, if you update our OS the system knows what you have installed and will provide updates for those packages like conky as well. IF you do it manually you are on thin ice. PArticularily as you said you're new to it.10:06
cc11rocksryan1995 - Although you can use antivirus software if you wish10:06
dygeyW4sp: looks like it was already installed10:06
ryan1995Oh ok lol10:06
ryan1995So i can download torrents, etc and not have to worry?10:07
cc11rocksCael - What about flash etc "drive-by" downloads/installs...All OS's are affected by those (some OS's more than others)10:07
luftikussW4sp: What IRC network does provide an amateur radio channel?10:07
W4spdygey: Fine then, now you need to configure it so it matches your region and so on. IF you get stuck can come back and ask the channel for assistance.10:07
cc11rocks_1Cael - Like that nasty flame/fire virus that hit the Mac OS...If targeted correctly, it could have hit Ubuntu, Mac, AND Windows with ONE virus10:08
caelone question though Draugauth , i got used to debian (again via my Ras-Pi) does ubuntu load modules that are listed at boot? and cc11rocks , ones that spread via exploits in say removable media? yea stuff like that is somewhat Platform universal.10:08
k1lryan1995: viruses (or malware to be more specific) needs more user intervention due to the design of the rights managment. so if you keep your eyes and mind open it is not gonna happen10:08
ryan1995Do I need an antivirus?10:08
caelNot really in linux ryan1995 , but it never hurts to be safe,10:08
ryan1995I have Xubuntu is it the same thing?10:09
cc11rockscael - That is a possibility, but I was talking about viruses that require no user intervention - the ones that you just go to a website and you are infected with. Called a "drive-by" download10:09
cc11rocksYes, ryan1995...They use the same technologies that would get infected...10:09
ryan1995Oh ok lol10:09
cc11rocksEither way...I currently don't have antivirus on10:09
cc11rocks_1either of my (Ubuntu) computers10:09
k1lryan1995: as an example: dont activate every ppa or .deb package you can find. think about if you really need it and where is the package from10:09
MonkeyDust!av > ryan199510:09
ubotturyan1995, please see my private message10:09
caelryan1995, yea the versions of ubuntu are just specialised for one spefic WM, Xubuntu is set around XFC, kubuntu around KDE, normal ubuntu around gnome.10:10
ryan1995Im new to Xubuntu I just netinstalled it onto my laptop10:10
dygeyW4sp: sorry mate, you got me wrong. that was EXACTLY what i was doing. i know my english isn't that good, bout if you were reading what i was saying, you've found out by now what i was trying to do to get this...bag of dirt running.10:10
caelthough i see xubuntu is a lil "peppy" on older hardware,10:10
cc11rockswebupd8 is a VERY reliable ppa manager that I trust...I tend to be wary of most others if they didn't come from devs10:10
W4spdygey: Before you go and focus your undivided attention to your conky let me point you to something that you may need in the future. As mentioned use Ctrl+Alt+t to get to a terminal. You can use cd to change directory or to go to your home folder, cp and mv to copy and move, pwd to shwo your actual directory. To figure out what these commands are type man <command> at the command prompt.10:10
ryan1995I dont download anything really though10:10
k1lryan1995: but in general you can feel quite safe.10:10
cael(that and i like the XFCE WM, has a verry "OSX-y" feel.10:10
MasterKongjoin #windows10:11
ryan1995I just play online browser game/ stream videos and music10:11
cc11rocksI have webupd8 ppa's for (Oracle) Java, VLC's (no longer true, but used to use), as well as several  others...10:11

cc11rocksHello superbbbfab, anything we can help you with?10:12
cc11rockssuperbbbfab - What is wrong? Is there a new version that is to be installed?10:12
Cantideryan1995, after more than 2 years of using Ubuntu as my main OS, and without any anti-virus software, I've never gotten a virus (that i've been aware of)10:12
DraugauthAnyone here a hardware raid user in Ubuntu?10:12
ryan1995Oh ok Cantide thanks for the insight ȘD10:12
DraugauthCantide:  After decades using MS OS's I've never gotten a virus but then I don't open every single thing in the world either /lol10:13
DrManhattanDraugauth, fakeraid hardware raid or true hardware raid10:13
dygeyW4sp: don't bother man.i'm hard headed.thanks anyway10:13
superbbbfabi d0n't understand how it works, there is a guide for it?10:13
caelryan1995,  though if your going to download/use a "sketchy" file or website.10:13
ryan1995I dont cael dont worry ȘD10:13
caelsandbox it in a VM(VirtualMachine)10:13
cc11rocksTry this to update : wget -q "http://deb.playonlinux.com/public.gpg" -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_precise.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install playonlinux10:13
DraugauthDrManhattan:  True hardware raid (24 port card)10:13
DrManhattanwow - I've only done fakeraid. Respect.10:14
CantideDraugauth, fair enough, but others have infected my MS OS via memory sticks and the like10:14
ryan1995I have another question Cantide Lol10:14
cc11rocksplayonlinux uses wine (winehq.org) to run/install Windows programs10:14
TJ-Draugauth: what's the issue?10:14
caelplayonlinux is basicly just a front-end to wine.10:14
DraugauthCantide:  Ah I don't even let my family ony my systems except in a VERY restricted account10:14
ryan1995Nvm I fixed it10:14
Cantidethat's the safest way :)10:14
dygeyok, guys...can someone give me some real help with conky? or i'm asking too much?10:14
sahaquielaww yeah, 20 days uptime on my crappy notebook10:14
cc11rocksplayonlinux uses the most compatible version of wine for the most popular programs and games10:14
Cantideryan1995, sure :) although I'm not very knowledgeable :)10:15
cc11rocksTJ- Can you help me real quick? I'm supposed to be in bed...10:15
DraugauthTJ-:  I am able to achieve 200MB writes over the network via 2 systems writing to it but can only get 45-50MB reads over the network via the same 2 systems.10:15
Cantidewhew :)10:15
ryan1995How do you change your keyboard?10:15
TJ-cc11rocks: Did you find any mentions of wpa_supplicant?10:15
Dr_Willisdygey:  depends on the help. conky has a huge amount of info out there on the web10:15
DrManhattanit's a shame you can't get better gaming in linux like you could in the good old days of counter-strike10:15
DraugauthDrManhattan:  I got my card for a good deal.   350 and I got 4 of the 6 cables with it ;)10:15
ryan1995It gives me wierd symbols that arent there when i press some keys10:15
sahaquielDrManhattan: let's hope steam on linux changes that!10:15
superbbbfabbut i 've to disinstall playonlinux?10:15
cc11rocksI can give you more if you need it...10:15
DraugauthDrManhattan:  L4D runs smoother and faster on Linux.   Valve proved it via steam.10:15
cc11rockssuperbbbfab - to uninstall, run "sudo apt-get purge playonlinux"10:16
TJ-Draugauth: Is dmcrypt in use? Are you using NFS for the network?10:16
Dr_Willissuperbbbfab: playonlinux uses wine10:16
cc11rocksThat will get rid of it completely...10:16
dygeyDr_Willis: yeah, a huge amount not for the begginers in linux10:16
W4spdygey: I'm female but will pass your wishes along when I get a chance to see one. LOL.10:16
DrManhattani'd be stoked to be able to play cs:s on linux but source engine is so old10:16
DrManhattanbf3 or die10:16
DraugauthTJ-:  NTFS (waiting on 5 more HDDs to switch over to NFS/ZFS)  didn't install dmcrypt.  How can I find out if it is on?10:16
cc11rocksTJ- I didn't know what to cut out or not...if you need more, I don't mind posting more...10:17
Cantidein a way i see the lack of gaming on Linux a blessing in disguise - less distractions :p10:17
caelit took awhile to fully run (well unoffically) my fav MMO on WINE.10:17
TJ-Draugauth: dmcrypt would only be if you're using LUKS to encrypt the block devices10:17
dygeyW4sp: then sorry for the "man" thing10:17
cael"Final Fantasy XI"10:17
superbbbfabto play windows games i can use also only wine? or it's important also playonlinux?10:17
DraugauthTJ-:  I didn't install LUKS and honestly don't know what it is ;)10:17
caelwell you need wine reguardless playonlinux just makes it easier to install games/apps10:17
cc11rocksCantide - Over the past couple months, I've come up with a HUGE list of games for GNU/Linux OS's...And Steam is coming to GNU/Linux in a few months, etc10:17
Dr_Willissuperbbbfab: playonlinux is a frindlier frontend to wine10:17
Matan[M]hello, someone know how to integrate x-chat with chat/mail menu in u12.04?10:18
DrManhattanyeah but steam going doesn't mean steam GAMES are going10:18
DrManhattanand like I said, bf3 or die.10:18
cc11rocksBut it's the START of something...10:18
TJ-Draugauth: Good ... one less thing to consider! ... So the file-systems are NTFS ... how are they being shared over the network if not NFS? Samba ?10:18
DraugauthSteam has already converted L4D to Linux OGL.   Some others are in the works as well.10:18
DraugauthTJ-:  Yes Samba.10:19
DrManhattanif bf3 goes over ill leave windows.10:19
cc11rocksL4D runs BETTER on GNU/Linux than on Windows (if I remember my sources correctly)10:19
Cantideas Linux gains steam (pun intended) i'm sure more and more games will come, too10:19
superbbbfabdr willis sorry i don't understand "frindlier frontend "10:19
DrManhattanyeah dude but thats SO OLLD10:19
caelyea DrManhattan , some games that srecive regular updates at one version can make it run just fine on linux,  while one can make it run like crap and another outright Break it.10:19
Draugauthcc11rocks:  Nixie Pixel says so so we know it's true!  ;)10:19
TJ-Draugauth: OK ... I think it could be a SMB/CIFS issue10:19
cc11rocksDraugauth :D10:19
cc11rocksTJ- Did that post help?10:19
DraugauthTJ-:  Any suggestions?10:19

extropywhat kind of background wouldy ou actually need to get hired at Steam to work on *nix stuff?10:22
TJ-Draugauth: I see mentions that sometimes it can be caused by the NICs not being in full-duplex mode as well as other things you can check. Take a look at http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/speed.html#id269095210:22

cc11rocksTJ- Funny how I ran lspci a couple min ago10:23

TJ-Draugauth: focus on the network link layer ... on both the clients and the server10:23
TJ-cc11rocks: Did you pastebin it?10:23

Dr_Willisdygey:  the archive you downloaded.. extract it somewhere.. fine the .conky file. copy it to your /home/yourusername directory10:24
Dr_Willisdygey:  sure it dident say .conkyrc ?10:24
TJ-Draugauth: not necessarily... these things are complex beasts... at the very least, prove that the network isn't the issue and try to isolate the issue to one side of the link, and then monitor processes i/o performance and so forth10:25
extropyanyone here pretty savvy with postfix?10:25
Dr_Willisdygey:  in your home directory make a .fonts directory, copy the font files to it10:25

TJ-cc11rocks: now give me "sudo lspci -nnvv -s 2:0.0"10:26

DraugauthTJ-:  Ok Ubuntu is timing out when I try to open the workgroup.  Any ideas?10:30
cc11rocksTJ- Don't they tweak the kernel that comes with this. Wouldn't I lose the kernel options that they turn on/off?10:31
W4spdygey: As this is directly aimed to me ... I told you to repeat your question as I joined later. Don't blame Ubuntu or others for your lack of communication skills.10:31
TJ-Draugauth: I've tried to stay away from SMB/CIFS since it is such a mess, so I can't be much more use to you. But it sounds like you're starting to get closer to an explanation and fix10:31
TJ-cc11rocks: No, we build the mainline kernels and package them using the same kernel config10:32

TJ-cc11rocks: Yes, that will do10:35
DraugauthDr_Willis:  How do I enter it?  Only thing I could find is search10:36
TJ-cc11rocks: you'll need the linux-image, linux-image-extra linux-headers-*all and linux-headers* for your archituecture10:36
TJ-cc11rocks: so either i386 or amd64 packages, but don't mix them10:36
extropyMarzata: if the port is forwarded (and allowed, prerouted) you should be able to connect just fine10:36

SpoonlessHi all10:42
DraugauthDr_Willis:  That one didn't but I think I found the oops.    It was a nested directory so I think I needed the full path.   But yeah I just hit 97MB so it isn't a network issue.10:42
SpoonlessCan anyone give me a hand with some Live Usb trouble I've been having? Or is this not the place?10:43
Dr_WillisSpoonless:  state the issue,10:43
Draugauthsamba is /etc/samba/samba.conf right?10:45
SpoonlessAttempted to install Ubuntu 12.04 on a thumb drive so that I could live boot it. The terminal instructions on the site didn't work for me so I used Unetbootin, but that creates a bootable USB that works on windows, not Mac, which I wasn't aware of. I'd like to make one that I can boot on my MBP.10:45
DraugauthSpoonless: Format the USB in the mac file type and try it.  I had a problem with unetbootin in FAT not working on my server but NTFS did.10:46
SpoonlessSo GUID?10:46
extropymac's like GPT right?10:46
Matan[M]hello, someone know how to integrate x-chat with chat/mail menu in u12.04?10:47
SpoonlessThe thing is, Unetbootin states that the created USB won't work on Mac after it's done installing.10:47
extropywhen I boot from pen drives I almost always end up using good old fashion FAT10:47
KatsumeBliskSpoonless: If I'm not mistaken, you hold down a key when booting from USB on a mac to do it. I'm not a Mac expert though.10:47
qualiaSo if i download an ISO of a distro for pen drive, can I boot it from my local drive10:48
extropyKatsumeBlisk: not a mac user, but that's still good to know10:48
extropyqualia: the boot sector has to be written to, but otherwise yeah, it's pretty much as simple as all that10:48
SpoonlessKatsumeBlisk: Hold down the Option key to show available startup disks. The usb doesn't show up though.10:48
Dr_Willisqualia: easier to put it on a usb10:48
KatsumeBliskextropy: I don't ever deal with Macs, so I'm kind of guessing. lol.10:48
KatsumeBliskSpoonless: Ah. Then I can't help. I don't use Macs ever.10:48

extropyUSB itself, yes10:50
extropybut the r/w speed of some crappy Sandisk Cruzer, nah10:50
SpoonlessI would do that, install from a CD and specify the USB as the install site, but my Optical drive is busted...10:50
gmagnobtw, I'm using a xubuntu 12.0410:51
KatsumeBliskextropy: It depends on the drive. You can't call an entire form of media slower than another when you use slow forms of that media. :P10:51
extropyactually ... really?10:51

W4spmhahe: That would be for tcsh and csh.10:53
extropyugh, I hate it when I type "calc" and hit [enter] from "Dash Home" and it pulls up LibreOffice for some reason, think I'll just remove it. Who uses spreadsheets anyway?10:54
DraugauthSpoonless:  That's the only thing I can suggest.  I'm not a MAC fan personally.  Don't get me wrong MAC is a good PC and all but I don't like the parent company ;)10:54
extropyok, it's because it's *called* "LibraOffice Calc" ... I'm a dumbass10:55
extropywhy don't they just call it was it is? "LibraOffice Spreadsheet"10:55
DraugauthSpoonless:  But I know on my P5NSLI motherboard I could not boot from any USB formatted as FAT16 or FAT 32.  I had to use NTFS.  So it's worth a try.10:56

SpoonlessForgive my noobish comment, but when formatting a drive, the only formats available to me are a bunch of "Mac OSX Extended", "Ms-Dos FAT", "ExFat" and "Free Space." What were the formats you were referring to, NTFS, FAT16, FAT 32. Could the problem be there?11:03
extropyOS-X itself has supported GUID Patrition Tables since version 10.4.0 if that helps11:04
extropyI know OpenBSD likes GUID .. can't see why OS-X would be any different11:04
extropythough I guess this assumes that the harware bundle with GUID-friendly OS-X would support GUID, can't really assume I guess.11:05
SpoonlessI can use GUID, Apple partition or MBR. Somehow, whenever I try to bind a .img file to my newly formatted GUID thumb drive, I turns to MBR upon completion and tells me "this disk can't be read on this computer."11:07
extropyshaneloots: when you installed Ubuntu did you select the "Download updates while installing"?11:07
extropyI seem to have similar problems if I try to do that. Seems to work better if I install the ISO "vanilla" and *then* update11:07

Dr_WillisGuest39671:  edit the image file in /usr/share/backgrounds/  would be one way. ;) backup the original11:09
extropythe method I like for Flash drives is to just install that partition table / bootloader and simply copy the content of the ISO to the flash drive11:09

DraugauthFor some reason last reboot they stopped auto enabling11:09
extropythough I haven't done the pen drive thing it a while ... it keeps bricking my drives T:11:09
Spoonlessextopry: I'm afraid that seems to be beyond my capabilities. I just convert the .iso to an .img with hdiutil, then dd it over to my usb. How would I do what you're describing?11:10
Dr_Willisif you dd an iso file to flash. ive always had to dd' from /dev/zero to the flash then use gparted to repatition it to return it to 'normal'11:10
Guest39671thanks Dr_Willis will try now11:11
Dr_WillisSpoonless:  i just dd the iso file. no need to converet11:11
TJ-shaneloots: With "nomodeset" it is possible the correct xserver driver for the video adaptor refuses to load and the system falls back to the VESA or framebuffer drivers, both of which can fail to select a valid mode. If you remove "nomodeset" and let the PC boot and get all the way to the GUI log-in (even if the screen is blank whilst booting) can you then get correct graphics?11:11

shanelootsi am installing from a cd?11:53

TJ-Dr_Willis: I agree; forums indicate that the HD3870 is supposed to work OK but might have video-playback acceleration issues, but nothing like shaneloots is describing11:54
bonhoefferbut i had no mouse11:55
shanelootsi will download the alternative cd and see how it goes. but would i not get issues anyway once it is installed?11:56

Golfgeoislandmonkey: Know that one11:58
Golfgeoislandmonkey: and nice though, and state I am going to ask ;) hihi11:58
MaxwellI´m having a big problem right now: yesterday I used gparted to expand my linux partition. for doing that it had to copy my partition to the front on my hard drive. At the point about a half was copied my computer turned suddenly off without error message. Same as trying to do a diskcheck after crashing and also crashed. Ubuntu can´t boot right now of course but it only copied my data which means it still is somewhere on my harddriv11:58
Maxwell Is there any option to rescue that data?11:59
GolfgeoMaxwell, low level tool can be a help, but only if you know where the start and end of the data is... exactly I mean...11:59
islandmonkeyGolfgeo: Can't remember where I got it from, but you can use a tool called Plymouth Manager which allows you to easily change the splash screen of Plymouth from themes from somewhere like http://gnome-look.org12:00
shanelootsTJ-: will i not just get the same issues once its installed?12:00
dsnydersMaxwell, you can try using a utility called testdisk.12:00
Golfgeoislandmonkey: will take a look at it12:00
Golfgeothanks mate12:00
MaxwellIs it like a live-cd?12:00
TJ-shaneloots: Often, no. Sometimes its to do with the limited options the LiveCD has12:01
alphadaSomeone can help me to resolve a grub issue? I m not able to start the windows 7 . Please find the summary here : http://paste.ubuntu.com/1142767/12:01
GolfgeoMaxwell: to be honest, best bet is to start over with the disk, install a fresh copy of everything and safe on a ton of mental pain and shrinks...12:02
dsnydersMaxwell, No.  It is something that may be on a live-cd, though.  Testdisk scans a hard drive and attempts to rebuild partitions.12:02
MaxwellFound it. Semms like its also included in gparted but I dont want to use it though it crashed already a few times12:03
MaxwellThat would be the best to copy my data on an external harddrive12:03
shanelootsTJ-: ok great ill download it and try. thanks for your help12:03
dsnydersMaxwell, that may not be it.  Testdisk is a command line, text only application.12:04
islandmonkeyGolfgeo: Found it myself (if you haven't already): http://sourceforge.net/projects/plymouthmanager/12:04
MaxwellI found this site http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Livecd12:04
nielsohey guys, im trying to reduce my mouse sensitivity to a much slower speed. the system preferences are already at minimum value. anyone any suggestion how to solve that problem?12:04

The_Cogahmet_fethar: You cannot re-package and sell the software from the repositories itself, but you can create what you like using that software (books, pictures, your own software) and the product you create is yours.12:21
greenitjgcampbell300, just ask your question, if any1 knows the answer, he/she will answer and if this is not the right place you will be redirected to the right channel ;-)12:21

ubottugreenit: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)12:22
greenit!ubottu cloud12:22
yeatsahmet_fethar: make sure you understand the licensing terms of each program you'd like to develop on12:22
glebihanThe_Cog, you can sell software from the repositories, as long as the source are freely available12:22
greenit!ubuntu cloud12:22
BluesKajHey all12:23
ubottuThe Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC), powered by Eucalyptus, is highly configurable and customizable to a variety of environments. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEC12:23
ahmet_fetharyeats: but The_cog writes that every app is free to use.12:23
jgcampbell300if i build a cloud with say 10 servers ... and I have one image that runs say some kind of server software that eats up alot of resources ... will it start using resources from all computers to run the one image ?12:23
OerHeksMeikel, did you set the script as executable ? chmod + x /path/to/script12:24
yeatsahmet_fethar: every app is free to use, but there are licensing terms on each program individually that concern exactly the kinds of questions you have about them (but that's probably off-topic here anyway)12:24
The_Cogglebihan: Yes. If you want to sell sw from the repos, then you can, with restrictions. See the licence the software comes with: GPL, LGPL etc.12:25
greenit!cloud | jgcampbell30012:25
ubottujgcampbell300: The Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC), powered by Eucalyptus, is highly configurable and customizable to a variety of environments. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEC12:25
glebihanThe_Cog, I know those licenses very well12:25
greenitjgcampbell300, i think the beginners guide at the end of the site will help you12:25
jgcampbell300greenit, thanks12:26
The_Cogahmet_fethar was asking, and seems less familiar with them.12:26
ahmet_fetharyeats: for example when ı want to install an application from synaptic, it isnatlls also other houndred depended pacgas to work propely. So ı need also to read all licences of them too. We will use ubuntu and other softwares from software center on our departmant. so we need to read million packages licence?12:26
Crnkojhi guys, i was wondering if one can install ubuntu 12.04 on a macbook air 2008 ? i only can find 8.04 ubuntu for that version of the air. thanks12:26
yeatsahmet_fethar: you need to understand the licensing terms of any program you plan to develop on and redistribute, yes12:27
ubottuFor help on installing and using Ubuntu on a mac, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MactelSupportTeam/CommunityHelpPages12:27
yeatsahmet_fethar: I would suggest reading up on open source licenses12:28
jribCrnkoj: what version are you talking about?12:28
ahmet_fetharyeats: we will use firefox to research on internet. we need to read it? it comes with ubuntu's isnatllation.12:28
Crnkojjrib this is te one im looking at http://www.ebay.de/itm/MacBook-Air-13-1-6-Core2Duo-2-GB-120-GB-SSD-A1304-MB543D-A-viel-Zubehor-/120964478785?pt=Apple_Systeme&hash=item1c2a0b774112:28
Crnkojjrib so it woudl depend if i bid on it or not depending ont he possibility to install latest ubuntu on it12:28
jribCrnkoj: what version of ubuntu are you talking about when you say you found an 8.04 for it12:29
yeatsahmet_fethar: you're misunderstanding me12:29
Crnkojjrib oh i was just googling around about ubuntu n macbook air and i only found 8.0412:29
ahmet_fetharyeats: i am talking for each app which are already listed on ubuntu's software center (firefox, eclipse, openjdk...)12:30
Crnkojjrib well i found this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookAir where they suggest 8.04... and thats sort of too old for me...12:30
jribCrnkoj: macbooks are intel macs you should be able to use the amd64 and i386 versions of ubuntu.  Thus why I am confused that you found a version of 8.04 for it12:30
ahmet_fetharyeats: if i will install extra from outside (from a deb package) i will ready the licence ofcorse.12:30
yeatsahmet_fethar: if you're *using* a program, these issues don't apply.  they only apply if you're planning to develop on them and re-sell them12:30
Crnkojjrib yes im confused about it myself as well, thats why i was asking around here12:30
ahmet_fetharyeats: oh alright than.12:31
ahmet_fetharyeats: :)12:31
Crnkojjrib i mean i know i can put gentoo on it and it will work fine, but for certain programs i woudl need ubuntu12:31
ahmet_fetharyeats: so i will develope a new application, i will not re-sell repackage anything.12:31
ahmet_fetharyeats: thank you :)12:31
Crnkojjrib so now im wondering if i can isntall teh latest ubuntu on a macbook air 2008 (core 2 duo)12:31
jribCrnkoj: yes12:31
Crnkojjrib ah ok thanks12:31
Crnkojjrib those ubuntu pages are so confusing lol =/12:32
jribCrnkoj: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookAir4-2 talsk about 12.04 for example12:32
Crnkojjrib ye but thats macbook air 4,212:32
Crnkojthe latest version12:32
tommy34im having trouble running an executable file, i double click it and it doesnt do anything12:33
jribCrnkoj: there isn't a 12.04 page for 4,1 because no one bothered to create one, but it should work12:33
Crnkojjrib ah ok thanks12:33
The_Cogahmet_fethar: If you are just using Linux to create your own work, you don't have to worry about the Linux licenses. Create and sell as much as you want. The restrictions are on redistributing Linux, in the same way as you can't sell copies of Windows yourself.12:36

ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience13:01
jriblars_: well one way would be to kill the pid you see there in the lsof output.  But it depends on your program13:01
lars_what is the best 1 to kill??13:01

jriblars_: after you killed it, did it still show up in lsof output?13:04
lars_nope thats gone13:05

bsandmanubottu i have looked everywhere and dont seem to be getting anywhere13:05

lars_so i open the program then?13:06
jriblars_: as step 1, yes13:06
lars_an step 2?13:06
Dr_Williscmaiz82:  perhaps 'unity --reset-icons' to reset it13:06
jriblars_: the lsof command you ran before13:06
Crnkojguys i ahve one question does the latest 12.04 ubuntu use grub or gru2 ?13:07
cmaiz82Dr_Willis, not work :(13:07
Dr_WillisCrnkoj:  grub2 is the default since like 10.04 i think13:07
MonkeyDustCrnkoj  grub213:07
lars_this is it http://paste.ubuntu.com/1142946/13:08
Crnkojok thanks13:08
Dr_Williscmaiz82:  theres unity --reset or --replace also. or try making a new user, see if the issue also affects them. if so. its a system wide issue13:09
jriblars_: well you now have a new process on that port... probably the one you just started13:09
jriblars_: so everything is ok now...?13:09
lars_no it said the same error13:09
Crnkojguys furtheron im coming from gentoo and want to have a dualboot of gentoo and ubuntu on one pc, my question now is with which distro shoudl i setup grub2 (im already using grub2 in gentoo), since i more often change kernels in gentoo i guess i might rather go with gentoo?13:09
jriblars_: what is that you want to do?  It seems like you're running a minecraft server on that port now.  What else do you want to do?13:09
lars_only minecraft server13:10
jriblars_: yes, it's now running it seems13:10
jriblars_: because it's already running13:10
lars_no if i start the minecraft it sayd this13:10
jriblars_: you only start it one time13:10
lars_this is what i did start program then did lof13:10
lars_and then it said it probetly run that port13:11
jriblars_: ok, but when you first ran it, it didn't complain.  So it started ok presumably13:11
jriblars_: I have to make guesses because you do not show me what you do13:12
lars_if is close the mienecraft server it said no ports are on that pc and when i open it said its already in use13:12
jriblars_: show on a pastebin13:12
lars_thats the port13:12
jriblars_: no, you're showing me the port being in use, and then you trying to start another server (well I guess anyway because there is no command there) and then it fails because the port is already in use13:13
cmaiz82i tried the 2 commands but do not work Dr_Willis, i'll go to create a new account, but i think is a system problem :(13:13
jriblars_: afaict you already have the server running and are trying to start another for some reason13:13
lars_look i closed the minecraft it said nothing when i open minecraft it listen to the port and the minecraft says its already in use13:14
jriblars_: yes, show me what you just said in a pastebin13:14
lars_can you do remote pc thats easyer13:14
jriblars_: no13:14
Dr_Willislars_:  close the minecraft how?13:14
pranavkmy work proxy allows me to connect to outside 443 and 80 ports only. I want to set up a system with chained proxies by running a squid proxy server on amazon aws on port 443 which would do all the stuff including IRC (on different port ) and other stuff for me so that i can surf smoothly. I can use proxychains but i want some localhost proxy to be internally set so that to all the softwares like pidgin i specify this localhost proxy a13:14
Dr_Willisyoy mean close down the server?13:14
jribpranavk: why not just ssh on 443?13:15
pranavkjrib: well , then what about accessing IRC ( on different port) through pidgin13:16
pranavkjrib: i can ssh to that machine using corkscrew and do the stuff....13:16
pranavkjrib: but i want something more flexible so that my application don't even know that there is something blocking the port they want to access.13:16
lars_thats everything13:17
cmaiz82I did everything but still does not display icons Dr_Willis13:17

Fish-Faceevery so often after leaving my computer for a while, the unity launcher's icons all disappear. It's happened now after coming back to it after ~2 days.

jriblars_: what's the lsof -i :25565 output at this very moment?13:19
cmaiz82the problem start after a system upgrade, it replaced libgl1-mesa-dri and now i have the problem13:19

lars_but the server cant find it and said the warning13:20
pranavkTJ-: no , proxy allows only 80 and 443 TCP .13:20
jriblars_: I can't help you any more.  Good luck with your issue13:20
lars_why not13:20
pranavkTJ-: I was thinking to create some program sort of on the localhost that do it automatically.13:21
lars_can i use an other port instead of port 25565??13:21
TJ-pranavk: An openvpn TCP connection then?13:21
TJ-pranavk: see for instance http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/howto.html13:22
lars_can port 8080 be used??13:22
libraratNot to add to the mess of issues swarming around here.. but I've got a server that (it's a gen 2 poweredge 2900) that is running 12.04 server. The whole system periodically hangs for no real reason. active ssh connections are cut off (sometimes), samba shares fall on their face (until the hang stop).  TTY1 remains clean. The logs show zero indication of anything happening.. What I haven't been able to work out is if it's every sing13:23
libraratle service hanging, or the whole system (but I'm going to go with whole system here, minus tty1)  ideas?13:23
pranavkTJ-: hmmm. okay. Actually I had an account over AWS and since their micro instance is for free, i thought to take advantage of that .....13:23
pranavkbut well will look into it now13:23
lars_i got the error at al the ports13:23

lars_can you give me a link where to get that 1?13:28
jrib!java | lars_13:28
ubottulars_: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin.

Stavawho could have guessed13:33
dungeonmaster93I'm trying to run Minecraft.exe but when I click on the file it attempts to open it with the archive program. ANy ideas?13:33
DJonesdungeonmaster93: You need the minecraft.jar from the minecraft website13:33
dungeonmaster93I have that too, but it also tries to open with the archive program13:34
DJonesdungeonmaster93: That should then allow you to open it with java13:34
dungeonmaster93I'm test driving this OS is java pre installed or do I have to install it?13:35
DJonesI just right click on the minecraft.jar and open with openJDK java 6 runtime or sun java 6 runtime13:35
Asad2005I am getting a system freez (not responding) from time to time. Last time was right after i issued clamscan what log to look in13:35
lars_thank you all verry verry much it work now13:35
DJones!java | dungeonmaster93 You'll probably need to install the openJDK java 6,13:35

Dr_Willisthe module name is 'nvidia-current' ? i thought it was just 'nvidia'14:24
bobweavergood point Dr_Willis  you could be correct on that one14:24
cmaiz82I will take a picture of the code to do it, lol14:24
Dr_Willispackage name is nvidia-current ;)14:25
Guest56390Dr.Willis Neg. that didnt work.  Do you think it is a virus or bug of some sort??  The exact wording is software updates are available for this computer.  1 update has been selected. 85 kb will be downloaded14:25
Guest56390then trying to install nothing happens14:25
cmaiz82yes nvidia-current14:25
cmaiz82ok, i will try it bobweaver and Dr_Willis and tell you the results14:25
Dr_WillisGuest56390:  ubuntu updates do not put things in the usere home dirs.. and it would not be using a file:// type path. so we need to know exactly what is giving you that message14:26
Guest56390Dr.Willis  I do not understand this and it has been doing that for months.. NOT the usual updates process14:26
Dr_WillisGuest56390:  what program is giving that message14:26

cmaiz82unity not work fine for me at least14:39
theadmincmaiz82: sudo apt-get install gnome-shell && sudo apt-get remove unity14:39
Dr_Willisdougl: under server settings i recall..14:39
theadminSectorX8: All of Ubuntu's development takes place on Launchpad. So that's the first place to look.14:39
cmaiz82ok i'll try it theadmin14:40
douglDr_Willis, thank you - err I checked there and cant seem to find it14:40
DJonesSectorX8: Best way to start is by using it, getting used to it and then helping to answer questions here, on the UBuntu forums or through askubuntu14:40
Dr_Willis!info unity14:40
ubottuunity (source: unity): Interface designed for efficiency of space and interaction.. In component main, is optional. Version 5.12-0ubuntu1 (precise), package size 1248 kB, installed size 3532 kB14:40
Dr_Willisi figured unity was a meta package ;) guess not14:40

ubottuSectorX8: To contribute and help out with Ubuntu, see http://www.ubuntu.com/community/participate and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ContributeToUbuntu14:40

MikeulusHello all. Has anyone gotten Left 4 Dead 2 running properly in wine on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit?14:42

Dr_Williscmaiz82:  you selected it at the login screen?14:42
theadminMikeulus: VALVe is porting Left4Dead to Linux, as well as some other games. But, anyway, source games tend to work quite well with Wine. For more help, install your graphic drivers and head over to #winehq14:43
cmaiz82Unfortunately, I did not like unity14:43
bobweavercmaiz82, you can do some great things with unity like look what I did with unity 2d http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfrm117Ukr014:43
Dr_Willisunity works well for me. and has some very neat features14:43

SectorX8OK I have read though the contribute page. But my field is not development, testing or such. I'm doing security. Such as pentesting, forensics, cloud security etc. I suppose that my competence could be requested in the community?14:47
theadminSectorX8: Quite possible. You might want to join #ubuntu-devel and ask around there.14:48
SectorX8OK. I'll do. Thanks.14:48

sambagirlyes bobweaver that is what i prefer. that is one reason why i have debian squeeze on some of the laptops now due to the disarray interface.  in my opinion, users are being cheated because they don't have the panels nor workspaces they had in all previous releases. top and bottom panels vanished! those are some of the most imporant beauties of linux to have ease of access and multi-functional enviornment "easily"..heck i15:24

extropyyeah they're going for Wayland now right?15:27
Saikiqt guy?15:27
extropybecause of it's OpenGL support?15:27
Dr_Willisthings will get very interesting when waylang gets here15:27
islandmonkeyextropy: Wayland is available for testing15:27
extropyor is it just leaner?15:27
agentgasmaskbobweaver: what is the feuter of gnome-classic?15:28
extropylike what's the motivation I wonder15:28
bobweaveragentgasmask,  not sure but the code is open source and compiling things in qt-creator is easy15:28
islandmonkeyextropy: X is terrible.15:28
agentgasmaskbobweaver: true. :)15:28
bobweaverlike I am on 12.10 with NUX 3 and unity 6.5   but I also have nux1 installed and Unty 415:28
Dr_Willisextropy:  X is  a very old 'standard' and has a lot of limits.15:29
bobweaverand different formfactors also15:29
bobweaverBut once again that is QT15:29
extropyis Wayland an X replacement then? I guess I just assumed it was a Unity replacement15:30
=== rajat is now known as rayn
Saikideadmund: returned blank15:30
Dr_Willisextropy:  its a x replacement15:30

Dr_Willis!info wayland15:30
ubottuPackage wayland does not exist in precise15:30
extropyand unity is a gnome replacement15:30
bobweaverextor,  no Nux is the graphic c++ lib15:30

Dr_Willisunity is a gnome shell...15:30
islandmonkey!info libwayland15:30
ubottuPackage libwayland does not exist in precise15:30
Saikideadmund: yes15:30
deadmundSaiki: Perhaps you made a typo on the file name?15:30
extropywhat was so inhibiting about X? seems pretty robust to me15:31
deadmundSaiki: try it with some other files that you know exist.  For example: apt-file search firefox15:31
Saikideadmund: library = /usr/local/lib/libepsng_p11.so15:31
Fuchsextropy: not really, since unity has no applications, it's just a few compiz plugins. You still need file managers and such. But I guess this would be more suitable for the offtopic channel.15:31
Dr_Willisextropy:  its like 20yr old standard15:31
islandmonkey!info libwayland015:31
bobweavermeaning that you can tie the lib into just about anything to render 3d stuff15:31

deadmundSaiki: without the folder name in front of it15:33
* Dr_Willis missread.15:33
notdanThinkT510: ok, so I just have to download the 64bit cd then?15:33
bobweaverbut of cource you get ride of QT you loss ubuntu phone and tv untill there is a way to run a different form factor using unity libs15:33
bobweaversorry </rant>15:33
ThinkT510notdan: if you want 64bit yeah15:33
Saikideadmund: apt-file search libepsng_p11  (returns blank)15:34

libraratHey guys, I've got a weird issue with a Server install. Essentially, I'm seeing frequent lockups. They only happen on remote sessions (TTY1 is unaffected) but it's happening to all network services. When I ssh, sometimes I get disconnected and other times I don't. As a diagnostic measure, I set a ping up to google and let it run - I saw the lockup (ping stats stop refreshing) freeze for about 20 seconds, then a whole block of stats15:46
librarat appears at once and the ping was still going just fine.  I was told that this might be an interrupt issue I'm seeing but I have no idea how to further diagnose this. This just started happening, out of the blue. I've completely reinstalled my server and even from a clean install (but with 11.10 and 12.04) I am still having these same issues. Does anyone have any ideas?15:46
Saikideadmund: http://pastebin.com/yPh9kn3815:46

disownso then the most knowledgeable people in the field would be using it ?16:20
TJ-biifer: You'll need to remove the Google repository from the list of software sources, or correct it, because it seems they've taken away that repository.16:20
TJ-disown: It's the common way that dev's around the world communicate16:21
disownmake sense , no more mailing lists or forums ... well maybe irc is the quickest and prefered way to do it16:21
KihokkiDoes anybody here use Intel GMA3600? Any news for upcoming drivers?16:23

TJ-gitesh: I think that is supposed to mean "bring up at boot time for all users" so if it isn't coming up I'm not sure why16:37
TJ-cristian__: sed using regular expressions to match and do replacements; you'll need to read a good sed tutorial e.g.  http://www.grymoire.com/Unix/Sed.html16:38
cristian__TJ for example... <TD>12345 is a normal numer, it hass to be deleted... if there are numbers with special caracters like +123456 they must be saved removing just the <TD> tag16:40

WHAT_DOWNi'm in an apartment building where i'm not allowed to connect wireless routers to the wall, but i can connect them to the computer. is there any way i can use a router to allow my phone to tether to my computer for internet access?16:54
WHAT_DOWNor even just tether the router to the computer16:54
theadminWHAT_DOWN: Uh, why do you need a router for that? Just tether it to the computer. What OS does the phone have?16:54
theadminWHAT_DOWN: Then it's simple. Settings -> Wireless Networks -> Tethering and Portable Hotspot -> USB Tethering -> Enable16:55
WHAT_DOWNthe computer doesn't have wireless, which i guess will make things a problem16:55
disownyou can connect your phone to a wireless router in the network settings of it16:55
disownfrom there you can connect your computer thru your phone to the wifi router16:56
disownby setting it as an access point16:56
disownso re cap just connect your phone to the wifi router via the network settings and also thru the network settings set up an access point SSID on your phone then connect your computer to it. But why not directly connect to the wifi router in the first places16:57
disownvia your computer16:58
theadmindisown: Phone has the internet in this scenario, not the router.16:58
theadmindisown: So that's what (s)he's trying to figure out16:58
disownO so you are using the 3g for your internet you have an APN then16:58
theadminWhich is much easier resolved by directly plugging the phone in16:59
samuelanyone here know of a channel where i can get hold of people from yorba?16:59
disownin that cases all you have to do is enable wifi access point on your phone and connect your computer via the SSID of your phone17:00
disownwhen it shows up in the networks availabe on your computer17:00
samuelor alternatively someone here that knows alot about shotwell17:00
theadmindisown: Aaand the computer doesn't have wireless, which is why the best idea here is USB tethering17:01
theadminsamuel: Shotwell is the default photo manager in Ubuntu, so shoot17:01
samuelwell just lately it has been detecting alot of my photo's as duplicate17:01
samueleven though they are not17:01
samuelto the point that i have whole days of photographs missing17:01
samueland random ones in existing events that are missing17:02
disownif you don't have wifi on your computer your only option is to tether directly thru usb or if your computer has bluetooth though thats more difficult to set up17:02
samuelthe files are there on the computer, but they do not show up in shotwell17:02
samuelwhen i try to manually plant them in, it says that it is already there17:02
samuelso do have to delete my shotwell database file and start again, ro is there some other way around this?17:03
theadminsamuel: Well, wait for someone who knows.. Cause I don't, I just know that this question is okay to ask here17:03
theadminI use, uh, I think Gwenview.17:03
samuelok well i will hang about, hopefully i can get the photo's in without wiping my database17:05
davidhurwichHello, don't mean to interupt i wondering if i could ask Ubuntu question17:05
davidhurwichto the group17:05

samueldavidurwich - its always best to have the exact make and model of the hardware you are having a problem with17:12
DJonesMrSergeantBigfoo: I don't have any issues with OpenJDK 6 and minecraft, that works as well as Sun Java (For me anyway)17:12
bunjeeanyone help me access terminal?17:12
samueland lspci will tell you if it is something like a wireless card or graphics card17:12
samuellsusb will tell you about anything connecting through a usb bus like a webcam or touchpad17:12

xorox90how can I deal wth package mass up problem after long time using ubuntu? although I always apt-get autoremove, some packages doesn't have proper dependency... so garbage leave..17:15
samuelnow, i dont know of any specific issues with that card, but if i were you my next step would be to put into google the following17:15
samuel"ubuntu 12.04 bcm4311"17:15
samuelyou may find a whole thread on ubuntu forums where someone has gone through exactly what you are going through17:16
samueland you can see what they have tried, failed, and succeded on17:16
samueli recommend that rather than us both running through all off that17:16
samueli had an issue with my broadcom wireless card in that it only gave me 2 bars of signal17:17
samuelbut i found a thread on ubuntu forums with the resolution17:17
davidhurwichOk, thanks i see what the forums have17:17
samueloops you may have missed some of what i said davidhurwich17:17
phred_hi all17:17
samueli will repeat the important bit...17:17
samuelgoogle this "ubuntu 12.04 bcm4311"17:18
samuelwithout the speech marks17:18
samuelhi phred17:18
samueli'm not sure whether you are asking or telling xorox9017:18
davidhurwichokay thanks17:18
phred_so who's the guru here today?  :)17:18
samueli always find synaptic package manager useful for problems with packages17:19
samuelphred if you just ask, if there is someone reading that knows the answer they will chip in17:19
samuelyou dont have to be a guru to answer some questions17:19

phred_i want to know how to bypass a dpkg error message17:19
davidhurwichthanks man, i appreciate it17:20
samuelyou mean you want to force the package to install anyway phred17:20
phred_i am running kubuntu... tried to upgrade from natty to oneiric a few days ago17:20
samueli believe you can do that by adding -f or -F cant remember which to your command17:20
samuelcheck the manpage17:20
phred_doesn't work17:20
phred_problem is that netbase won't install... i keep getting an error about md5hash17:21
phred_but i have downloaded several different times... i know the .deb file is good17:21
phred_now i just want to force dpkg to ignore the error and install it anyway17:21
samuelthe md5hash error appears to disagree with you17:21
phred_yes, it does17:21
phred_but i have downloaded and extracted it several times from different sources17:22
phred_i have scanned my file system and found no errors17:22
phred_i am convinced the error is either a) bogus, or b) refers to some config file somewhere that is borked17:22
TJ-What is the error message, precisely?17:23
phred_hang on17:23
phred_in isolation, the error reads:17:25
phred_Setting up netbase (4.47ubuntu1) ...17:25
phred_dpkg: error processing netbase (--configure):17:25
phred_ failed to read on buffer copy for md5hash: Input/output error17:25
phred_i have even tried different versions of netbase in an effort to resolve the problem17:25
phred_i can find no legitimate reason for the error17:25
phred_and yet, as you can see, networking seems to be working17:26
TJ-phred_: That's a sure symptom of a corrupted disk17:27
phred_i have scanned it and found no errors17:27
phred_if there's a corrupted file somewhere that i could delete and try again, i'd love to find it17:28
TJ-Have you checked the kernel log for reports of disk read/write errors? /var/log/kern.log17:28
phred_no... hang on, i'll do that17:29
KircleI'm trying to install emerald on 12.04 in a virtual machine before installing it on my actual desktop (had trouble with it in the past). I followed a tutorial on how to get it working in precise but after typing emerald --reload nothing changes17:30
phred_i do have a number of disk errors, but those are mostly a result of the peculiar hardware setup17:30
phred_would dpkg.log be more informative?17:30
Kircleusing fusion icon makes parts of the screen go black and eventually crashes compiz.17:30
deitarionI've got an old Athlon 2500+ that I'm setting up with Lubuntu but it's not offering me an nVidia binary driver for the GeForce4 MX 4000 in it. Since I'm planning on donating this to someone needy, what's the least fragile way to stop Flash from crashing immediately on plugin load? (YouTube is the ONLY thing I need to fix before it's ready to give away)17:33
theadmindeitarion: If it's YouTube, why do you need Flash?17:34
theadmindeitarion: Let it load it's HTML5 version and that's it17:34
deitariontheadmin: Don't they still blacklist the HTML5 player on any video that needs to display ads?17:34
theadmindeitarion: Do they? I have no idea...17:34
theadmindeitarion: I have adblock plus %)17:35
theadmindeitarion: Oh yeah, it says they don't17:35
theadmindeitarion: How did you install Flash anyway?17:35
deitariontheadmin: I checked the "Install patented codecs" checkbox in the installer.17:35
theadmindeitarion: Oh, that... I have no idea what that really does, but yeah, that should be enough. Hm.17:36
deitariontheadmin: The problem is that Flash crashes when you use Nouveau as the video driver.17:36
phred_would gnash help?17:36
theadmindeitarion: Hm... Why not install nvidia-current?17:36
theadminOr yeah, gnash might be good too17:36
deitarionThis is the first machine I've had with a video card older than a GeForce FX5200 and, hence, the first one where it hasn't offered an nVidia binary driver. I'm guessing the GeForce4-series is too old for nvidia-current. (I'll try it. If that doesn't work, I'll see if nvidia-legacy still exists and works.)17:37
deitarionI find Gnash too unpredictable to put on a machine I'm gonna donate.17:38
phred_it doesn't always work, but it seems at least to be stable on my systems17:38
deitarionI have trouble keeping Gnash stable on my geek box. Everything else, my mother uses every day and the worst issue she's run into is that LightDM silently fails to login if the hard drive is full because the un-privileged subprocess can't log into the root-reserved free space.17:39
phred_you're way beyond my skillset now... :)17:40
deitarionGnash also gives confusing results when you try to play a flash file which uses unsupported opcodes or ActionScript classes and, last I checked (about a month ago), it still had AV desync issues when playing an MP3 BGM track on a drawn/tweened/animated (non-FLV/MP4) video track.17:40
phred_is there a generic driver available that might work instead of the nvidia proprietary one?17:41
agentgasmaskguthrie: Hey. :)17:42
theadminphred_: The "generic" one is vesa, but...17:42
theadminphred_: That's gonna get ugly on a more-or-less big screen.17:42
pranavkusing openvpn i am connected to the openvpn server now creating a new network interface tun0, now i have two network interface eth0 and tun0, how do i tell my applications to use tun0 now instead of eth017:43
deitarionphred_: I suspect Flash will crash on anything that doesn't give it the GPU acceleration it wants. The only option I can think of there would be to copy the config file from my desktop where Flash works well enough for me to disable acceleration and write out the binary config file.17:43
phred_i think 800x600 looks great on a 21" monitor!  :)17:43
deitarion(The human-readable /etc config file only lets you force-ENABLE GPU acceleration. To force-disable it, you have to use the GUI INSIDE the flash plugin which writes a binary blob config file at ~/.macromedia/Flash_Player/macromedia.com/support/flashplayer/sys/settings.sol17:44
ubottulmarietto: No warez here! This is not a file sharing channel (or network); read the channel topic. If you're looking for information about me, type « /msg ubottu !bot ». If you're looking for a channel, see « /msg ubottu !alis ».17:44
deitarion...and I'm wary of that option because, if someone using the machine says "Hey! GPU acceleration!" and changes the setting, their only option is to ask someone with working flash to disable GPU acceleration and send over their settings.sol... which also happens to contain a list of all the domains you've visited with Flash.)17:45
DAN_Can anyone help with installing ubuntu?17:46
phred_just curious: does that video card use shared system memory?  if so, could there be a conflict of some kind?17:46
DAN_It just freezes once it has rebooted to complete install.17:46

DAN_But yes, black screened on a number of occassions17:47
wilee-nilee!nomodeset | DAN_ try this17:47
ubottuDAN_ try this: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter17:47
DAN_thanks, but tired it17:47
DAN_tried it17:47
DAN_no joy17:47
wilee-nileeDAN_, you would insert nomodeset in the krnel at grub the link shows how.17:47
wilee-nileeah DAN_17:48
DAN_yes, tried it. it doesn't work.17:48
pranavkTJ-: okay, thanks17:48
DAN_Techie friends are  all perplexed17:48
phred_is there a less-specific driver available from nvidia - one that supports the chipset but may not be optimized for that particular card?17:49
DAN_It worked wonderfully on my puny little netbook, but not on my main laptop17:49
phred_DAN_: could there be a loose hardware connection somewhere (drive cable, for example)?17:49
wilee-nileeDAN_, the live cd worked fine?17:49
DAN_until it reboots to complete install17:50
DAN_it doesn't work either when doing it from a USB/Disk17:50
wilee-nileesame basic install17:50
wilee-nileeDAN_, where you on the net on the installs ans clicked the update on install>17:51
wilee-nileeDAN_, there is a box that can be clicked to have updates installed while installing, it may be a driver that would have been picked up then.17:52
DAN_ok, I'll start again with it and see if I can do that. ty17:53
phred_good luck17:53
cristianhi guys17:53
wilee-nileeDAN_, might be easier then waiting for a search of the problem , may not hard to say.17:53

arabihello guys17:55
arabiis there any andorid emulator available for 12.04 ???17:55
wilee-nileeDAN_, you are using the live cd, should be 2nd or third gui has a third party baox as well.17:55
arabido you have any idea?17:55
DAN_it's definitely not there.17:56
DAN_yes, live cd17:56
arabiis there any android emulator available for Ubuntu 12.0417:56

crankhardergetting "gzip: stdout: No space left on device" while trying to update update-initramfs.  Seems that my /boot has 0 space left on it.  Is there anything I can do short of resizing that partition?17:58
wilee-nileeDAN_, here is a picture set of install. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/install-ubuntu-desktop17:58
wilee-nileesays wireless but more then that will be picked up.17:59
DAN_thanks. mine looks nothing like that at all.18:00
phred_crankharder: you probably need to purge some old kernels that take up space on /boot, but i don't know how to do that safely18:00
DAN_not this time around, at least.18:00
WeThePeople i have resized my ntfs now i would like to expand the linux fs by that much and gparted doesnt have an option to do this, is there a program that can add freespace to a partition?18:00
wilee-nileeDAN_, 12.04 correct?18:00
DAN_mine looks like this....http://praji.files.wordpress.com/2008/07/wubi.png18:00
DAN_12.04, ye18:01
wilee-nileeDAN_, that is a wubi install18:01
Sidewinder1WeThePeople, Gparted should do that; just make sure the partition you're trying to expand/shrink is unmounted.18:01
DAN_what's that?18:01
Sidewinder1WeThePeople, You may need to do that from a LiveCD environment.18:02
wilee-nileeDAN_, also says 8.04 which is end of life I believe.18:02
arabiis there any android emulator available for UBUNTU 12.04 ??18:02
wilee-nileeDAN_, A wubi instal is a install from windows18:02
DAN_8.04 thing is just taken from google images. i'm deffo trying to install 12.0418:03
DAN_yes, well I am installing from windows...18:03
Sidewinder1Real friends don't let friends use wubi; WADR to the developers, of cource.18:03
wilee-nileeDAN_, Installed from windows? that is the only way you would see that gui.18:03
DAN_yes, installing from win718:04
theadmincristian: Your regex looks correct, I have no idea why sed isn't working, but this seems to do the trick: perl -ne 's/^[0-9]$//;print'18:04
wilee-nileeSidewinder1, So what do people do that have no other way such as a work computer with no vm.18:04
Sidewinder1Good question.18:04
alecjwhi there, how can i use the internal microphone in my laptop under precise?18:04
cristianwith perl too ?18:05
wilee-nileewubi has its place but I get your point.18:05
Sidewinder1How 'bout LiveCD..18:05
=== rose is now known as Guest68720
theadmincristian: Why not? Perl is installed almost anywhere18:05
cristian-.- but i'm from maemo let me try it18:05
wilee-nileeDAN_, Wubi is basically a try out install it is a file in windows rather then a full install dualboot, is that what you want.18:06
Sidewinder1wilee-nilee, I agree; I just cringe when folks try to use it on a long term basis, upgrades, etc.. But I know what you mean.18:06

DAN_esp because currys tells me doing so would invalidate my warranty18:06
cristiandoesnt work18:06
Sidewinder1DAN_, Just do a "real" dual boot; I've been doing exactly that for years now.18:07
cristianthis is the command line18:07

wilee-nileeDAN_, you don't need to junk windows, I have multiple installs on one hd, W7 and 3 linux installs, some cringe at this though. This does not fix your original problem other then a full install would allo the updates and may be fine.18:07
phred_if doing a dual boot with windows, EasyBCD (http://neosmart.net/EasyBCD) is your friend18:08
cristianbut in the html outputfile i still have a line with a Number18:08
Sidewinder1DAN_, That's the whole purpose of Dual Boot; to have win on one partition and win on another. Then you can use which ever OS meets your needs, on an application basis.18:08
wilee-nileephred_, so is grub2 easybcd is a okay setup but not really needed if you understand the mbr, and have the right discs.18:08
Sidewinder1Oops Win on one and ubuntu on another, sorry.18:09
Sidewinder1 Time for a break. :-(18:09
phred_wilee-nilee: AND you intend to use grub as your bootloader.  If, on the other hand, you really want or need to use the Windows bootloader, EasyBCD is your friend.18:09
wilee-nileephred_, To each their own. ;)18:10

KircleI have a theme that was created for an older version of gnome and when I use it using 3.4 certain text is displayed as white making it almost un-readable in certain areas due to white backgrounds. How do I update the theme to play ball with 3.4? The author no longer takes interest in his themes18:51
nashirakI am having trouble deleting a file (as root).  I just installed a new mother board and I am getting permission denied when I try to delete the file.  In dmesg I get ata3.00: error {UNC} then ata3.00: failed command: Read DMA.  Its a reiser fs partition, if that makes a difference.  Any thoughts?18:51
dylannashirak: what is the location of the file?18:53
nashirakdylan: /usr/share/doc/libnss3/copyright18:53
nashirakdylan: I was trying to do a apt-get upgrade and when it went to remove that package I started getting permission denied on that file.  I am stuck in apt-get limbo until this gets resolved18:54

MrGizmo757can somebody help? i have an error SMbus not enabled. dmsg shows the driver but shows it being disabled.  how do i enable it?19:39
syddrafAs long as you configure VirtualBox to pass through the network connection properly, I don't see it being an issue.19:39
Edleryes but i mean will the vm have the same IP as the mac, and someone trying to connect to FTP for example will end up connecting to the VM rather than just mac ?19:39
Edleryes that's what i'm talking about, you can make it pass the connection ?19:39
syddrafEdler: Yes. I haven't done it personally, but I know that it is possible.19:39
Edlerokay and what about reboots, can Virtualbox open and run the vm on boot ?19:40
syddrafHaven't done it personally, but I don't see any reason you couldn't add VirtualBox to your startup list in mac.19:40

biiferHi. I have some issues with screen resolution. I have 2 24" monitors giving me a resolution of 3840x1200. Under "System Settings/Displays my setup is recognized as a "Laptop" with a 3840x1200 resolution, all in one screen. The "NVIDIA X Server" program recognizes 2 different screens and the more correct resolution of 2 times 1920x1200. The problems I get are related to full screen modes in different areas, Youtube for exam19:51

kevin_hi all. so for some reason my ps3 controller's input stopped, so i unplugged it. now 'lsusb' still shows it there as device 003... why is that? it's disconnected from the system, and dmesg shows 'USB disconnect, device number 3'20:31

palisadeit would be a base system image21:15
ThinkT510palisade: don't you mean before?21:15
DominicLowwould installing it as a dual boot system raise any problems though? not that familiar with dd21:15

ThinkT510palisade: if you dd an image how are you going to select the partition type or size?21:20
ReZa__AtaFibanezr  wlc21:21
ThinkT510palisade: the partition layout has to be there before you copy the data over21:21
palisadeThinkT510: it gets selected before the image is made so the image is already prepared with a default partition type and size... it would have to be expanded afterwards with parted to reach the size that matches their hdd, but the image would be small enough to fit on most common hard drives today, there could be a second disc that still copies individual packages if the user prefers that i suppose and has a smaller hdd21:21
