LiquidNilHello, I want to watch blu ray disk on ubuntu, VLC does not play it and yes I have the restricted extras and a blu ray drive????????00:00
hylianWeThePeople: have a good rest!00:00
WeThePeoplethx00:00
v0lksmanso fancontrol is removed but how do I restore the default fan behavior?00:00
LiquidNil!help00:00

v0lksmanmy fans are running full speed right now...hahaha00:00
LiquidNilv0lksman: please take that to ot00:00
v0lksmanLiquidNil: ? how is that not an ubuntu support question?00:01
KM0201i don't think you can play bluray natively in linux yet (i could be wrong)00:01
hylianv0lksman: well your pc is nice and cool. I will do some research quick and see if i can dig anything up...00:01
LiquidNilKM0201: so Blu ray can not be played on Ubuntu?00:01
v0lksmanhylian: thanks! digging too!00:01
KM0201LiquidNil: thats not what i said, i said i don't think it can be done natively(the way you're wanting to do it)..00:02
MerisLiquidNil, it can be played, just takes a little work00:02
KM0201google seems to confirm this.00:02

NicoBresslerIs it viable to program in Python in Ubuntu?00:02
ZeptisNicoBressler, yep.00:02
Dr_WillisNicoBressler:  python is used for a lot of things in Ubuntu00:02
NicoBresslerI would love to start learning Python00:03
Dr_Willismore viable in Linux, then in windows i would imagine.. ;)00:03
NicoBresslerI knew someone who was coding a phone system in Python00:03
MerisLiquidNil, try this link: http://apcmag.com/how-to-play-blu-ray-in-linux.htm00:03

Vyla2i think my system is not using the iGPU integrated of my i5-2500K... how do i check that?00:04
MerisZeptis, what's wrong?00:04
hylianv0lksman: well, this is a lot of work, but I think this may solve your problem. gkrellm is a strange little program. it will let you control your fan with the proper plugin... http://tuxtweaks.com/2008/08/how-to-control-fan-speeds-in-ubuntu/00:04
Zeptisnothing, Meris, I just posted that right before you did00:04
MerisZeptis, ah, you meant: Ninja'd.00:04
Zeptisninja'd implies lack of sodas :\00:05
Dr_WillisNinja Soda Jerks?00:05
MerisZeptis, does it now? How curious. Can't seem to see the connection between soda and ninja, but that must be me, I guess ;-)00:05
v0lksmanhylian: yeah I'm hoping to not have to control my fan and set it back to auto.  it's on a server anyways so no gui00:06

v0lksmanhylian: hahaha...that's what got me into this mess. :)00:07

hylianv0lksman: ohh, i misunderstood. hmmm, how strange. considering this is a server you probably want to keep up, i am assuming you have not restarted it... could it be something that needs restart of the kernel to re-implement?00:10

LiquidNiloh00:16
LiquidNilim not going to run it on a vm just to watch a blu ray disk00:16
hylianlinusable: no, it is dvd/blueray software pre configured in a linux kernel. you run it from live cd or usb drive.00:16
v0lksmanhylian: yeah thanks! normally we don't need to mess with fan speeds but this box is acting weird. at least it will be nice and cool overnight...hahaha00:17
LiquidNilhylian: where can i get it, the repos?00:17
Jordan_ULiquidNil: http://lxbdplayer.sourceforge.net/english.html looks promising, but I have not tested it in any way and cannot vouch for it.(simly found it through http://askubuntu.com/questions/9912/how-can-i-watch-blu-ray-discs?rq=1 )00:17
LiquidNilJordan_U: thanks00:18
hylianLiquidNil: not vm. you reboot the machine with the linux kernel, and then run the blueray. it doesn't play encrypted blue ray though...00:18

Teddey305i restarted the pc00:54
Teddey305and the cd seems to have gotten stuck, so im going to burn a  new copy and see00:54
WeThePeoplecoldkey21, what distro u using00:55
hylianTeddey305: this problem has existed since 2006. It looks like Ubuntu never did solve this problem. You may have to use another distrobution. I would not suggest fedora though, it seems they have the same problem00:56
blackshirtwhat the problem exactly?00:56
coldkey2112.0400:56
hylianblackshirt: he gets this error: IBM Laptop detected; this module may corrupt your serial eeprom! Refusing to load mudule!00:56
hylianblackshirt: and then he can't install ubnutu00:57
blackshirtthat was very basic...00:57
WeThePeopleteddey305, you could ask in #hardware too00:57
Jordan_UTeddey305: Are you actually running into any problems or are you just worried about seeing an error message?00:57
Teddey305i already ran into an error message00:57
hylianblackshirt: he has a ibm 600 x. there is a problem in the kernel itself, i believe. it will not install ubuntu.00:57
Teddey305but i restarted the pc and it seemed to get past the error message, but the pc froze up00:58
blackshirti don't know exactly what the hardware inside that series..00:58
Teddey305so i burned a new copy to see if i get the same message00:58
blackshirtHave you try to disable some spesific options?00:58
Teddey305but if i did have to find another distro, which one is as easy to use as ubuntu? This is for my mother, who is 67, and she's used to windows lol, but i dont have the money to buy her a new pc at the moment, so im trying to get this one fixed up, so she can at least  watch some youtube videos or listen to some music.01:00
=== Dr_Willis_ is now known as Dr-Willis-testin

LostMonkdoes netflix instant watch not work on linux?01:09
hylianTeddey305: i am sorry man. I have dug as deep as I can. IBM never did give much or any support for this issue, and the linux heads basically came up with nada. I know ubuntu 5.10 works on your laptop. i can't imagine that being of any real help to you though for your purposes.01:09
coldkey21hylian: the mirror option is not even avalible it sees it all as one large laptop monitor 3360x1050 when it should be two 1680x105001:09

hylianikonia: right. we are looking for a linux distrobution that does not use lm sensors so he can install linux, so he can watch youtube. you don't know what's going on, i do. please don't act this way, thanks.,01:18
ikoniahylian: lmsensors is not installed an enabled by default on pretty much any linux distro01:18
ikoniahylian: I'm pretty sure I do know what's going on, hence why I'm asking you to think about the random advice and comments you are making to actually help poeple.01:19
wormjam__: Open the file, and have a look inside. if there is a file looks like "makefile" or "configure", that is a source code.01:19

jam__yep 12.0401:27
StarthunderKM0201: oh, lol01:27
hylianjam__: the first question would be why you installed an antivirus.. is it a linux version, or did you try and install it via wine?01:27
jam__it linux version and it was a deb package01:28
jam__got it from here See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus01:28
hylianjam__: can you type apt-cache search avg for me in the console?01:28

cellofellowI plan to install Windows 8 in a virtual machine. Just, which one? I'm quite familiar with VirtualBox but was wondering if KVM with virt-manager is better.01:37
hylianjam__: here are the commands and a nice howto for avg. it is all console commands though. I had some success with clam av and f-prot. clam av does have a gui (grpahical front end) you can download seperately that will let you run the anti virus in a nice graphic window. http://ihaveapc.com/2011/07/how-to-install-and-use-avg-antivirus-in-linux-mint-ubuntu/01:37

ubottuyam_: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)02:45
cfhowlettWeThePeople: greetings02:45
SpiifySo i have a question that may sound silly. Can ubuntu be installed on a freshly built cp with no os02:45
cfhowlettSpiify: not silly and yes it can02:46
yam_is that real he always repead it . is it joke or sth?02:46
chspurgeoncfhowlett: ill give that a try, thanks for your help!02:46
cfhowlettchspurgeon: best of luck.02:46
lidarSpiify, no question is silly!! well yours kind of is but of course it can be installed02:46
|Anthony|yam_, that is a bot02:46
yoofyes02:46
h22turboyam_: u can boot ubuntu in recovery mode, drop to a root shell, then reinstall it to get back to your desktop02:46
Smackbookdoes adding a drive to an mdadm array overwrite its partition table?02:47
MonkeyDustyam_  ubottu is a (ro)bot02:47
yam_so should i do what he says dpkg -l | awk '/^rc/{print $2}' |  sudo xargs dpkg -P02:47
yoofhow much programming knowledge does it take before i can write code for ubuntu02:47
yoof?02:47
h22turboyam_: then try to remove it again (try google for proper way to uninstall AVG on ubuntu)02:47
MonkeyDustyam_  and ubottu is a girl02:47
|Anthony|yam_, may i suggest that in the future you use clamav02:47
WeThePeople!ubotto02:47
jribyam_: wait02:48
h22turboyoof: thats a pretty open question... code what? what language? umm... cant really be answered02:48
|Anthony|yam_, it is in the ubuntu repos and is (imho) superior to the commercial options02:48
agc93Has anyone else had the NVIDIA API Mismatch errors with the new drivers?02:48
yoofi am beginning c++ right now02:48
jribyam_: do you understand that that command will remove all configurations from packages you've uninstalled?02:48
SpiifyHaha i was thinking about building a pc for the first time and i am on a strict budget figured ubuntu would be the eay to go02:48
lidaryoof, you cvan contribute to almost any project ... if its a good patch the maintainer will use it02:48
yam_yep02:49
__Eggmanyoof: I would suggest reading the GNU guide to C/C++ programming, it is very well written and has plenty of examples02:49
h22turboyoof: you can download many C++ IDEs for ubuntu to code and compile02:49
Zeptishello again: I'm in jockey-gtk, and I'm looking at 4 drivers; they all seem to be directing me to a /usr/share/doc/ section I don't have a directory for.02:49
cfhowlettSpiify: very wise.02:50
h22turboZeptis: i always download the drivers from the actual company website (nvidia.com, etc) and install like that02:50
agc93After I installed the latest NVIDIA drivers, X won't start because of a mismatch with the kernel module.02:50
agc93I don't think that will work02:51
Zeptish22turbo: >>Unable to determine the version of the kernel sources located in '/lib/modules/3.2.0-29-generic/build'02:52
h22turboagc93: did u remove the nouveau modules?02:52
Zeptisfrom the nvidia-installer.log02:52
yoofgreat, i will check out the gnu guide to c/c++ programming02:52
zykotick9h22turbo: nvidia.com drivers are usually a bad idea on ubuntu... jockey is a MUCH better idea.02:52
h22turbooh, u need to download your kernel source/headers, uninstall the nouveau modules, then install nvidia drivers02:53
h22turbozykotick9: i get better performance with nvidia.coms drivers.... way better than the jockey drivers02:53
zykotick9!wfm02:53
ubottuCommon Sense: Just because you can, does not mean you should (and especially recommend to others). Think before you do. "Works for me" does not mean it is ok. The latest version of everything is not always useful if you aim for stability. Please see http://geekosophical.net/random/worksforme/02:53
lidarits not the "ubuntu" way but i always built my own kernel and then used nvidia drivers from website02:54
__Eggmanyoof: It's a small pdf, I would also hang out at #ubuntu-programming (though it's usually a ghost town)02:54
Zeptish22turbo: if I did the universal metapackage for headers and source, I just need to uninstall nouveau, right?02:55
h22turboagc93: there is tons of howto guides on installing nvidia.coms drivers on ubuntu. it will show you step by step how to do everything.02:55
h22turboZeptis: yea, but just to be safe... I'd do a uname -a and download the correct ones... the meta packages should work fine tho02:56
h22turboand install the build-essential package02:57
SpiifyDoes ubuntu run well on low end processors?02:58
=== buhman is now known as xXxXxbUhmAnxXxXx
h22turboZeptis: apt-cache search linux-headers-$(uname -r)02:58
ZeptisSpiify: not out of the box, use xbuntu for that02:58
=== xXxXxbUhmAnxXxXx is now known as xXxXXXxXxX
__EggmanSpiffy: Depends, GNOME can be kind of heavy handed on your graphics, I'd suggest trying Lubuntu or Kubuntu which feature lighter-weight desktop environments02:58
cfhowlettSpiify: lubuntu and xubuntu both run well on low-spec machines are are designed to do so02:59
h22turboSpiify: depends on the desktop env u use... gnome and kde would be pretty sluggish on a low end pc02:59
h22turboSpiify: try xubuntu02:59
yam_I cant log in my ubuntu . how can i back up by desktop to a flash drive?02:59
euryalehi guys02:59

agc93I just had a quick search and turns out there actually aren't any guides on the net that work with the new NVIDIA drivers. They usually fail after the first reboot.03:02

Zeptish22turbo: so, I got my headers, I got my source, so I just need to remove the nouveau xorg, right?03:03
agc93NVIDIA website, or the xorg-edgers PPA, possibly also X-Swat. Haven't checked what they're up to03:03

lidaryam_, you might be able to just apt-getr install ubuntu-desktop03:04
=== xXxXXXxXxX is now known as buhman
somsipagc93: I think you've already been advised that NVIDIA drivers may not be suitable, but if current drivers are not working, instal official repo drivers or an old version of XSwat, etc...03:04
foreclei'm have question03:04
Zeptisshoot, forecle.03:04
__EggmanSpiify: Either is good, the G630 would use less power IIRC it's a 65W but most of the i3's use closer to 35 regardless of their TDP rating03:04
cfhowlett!ask|forecle:03:04
ubottuforecle:: Please 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 !patience03:04
agc93somsip: Repo ones don't seem to support multimonitors on my card, which is kind of a deal-breaker for me. Will try old XSwat03:04

ubottuZeptis, please see my private message03:05
Zeptisplay it again, James.03:05
h22turbolots of howto guides on installing nvidia drivers on ubuntu03:05
somsipagc93: I played with a few and XSwat seemed to have a good rep. I'm on dual monitor here on an old card with official drivers, but different models may be dodgy03:05
agc93somsip: ok, I'll have a look. My early attempts at using multiple cards for triple monitors resulted in a borked install but I might be able to get duals working03:06
yam_what is the command to coppy my desktop to usb03:06
=== euphoria is now known as ceradon-away
SpiifyWould ubuntu run good enough on either of those with 4GB DDR3?03:06
Zeptisokay, I'm going to write this down this time so I don't forget syntax03:06
somsipagc93: how are you settng it up? With nvidia-settings or a manual method?03:06
agc93yam_ what are you trying to copy?03:06
yam_my desktop03:07
agc93somsip: nvidia-settings mostly. Xorg.conf never works for me anymore03:07
ZeptisSpiffy: RAM would be fine, but the processing on unity will be somewhat slow03:07
agc93yam_ you're going to need to be more specific03:07
h22turboyam_: cp /home/XXXX/Desktop /media/USB/ (or whatever ur USB is mounted as)03:07

SpiifyAre the Llano line any better or should i stay away from them03:10
yam_lidar: I corrected it now but still does not work03:10
lidaryam_, what error ?03:10
__EggmanSpiify: Weak cores, strong GPUs, depends on the computers intended use03:10
h22turboyam_: umm, why are u backing everything up on a usb stick? i would just backup what u need/want like docs, pics, etc... then reinstall ubuntu fresh...03:10
F1CCC#channel 1003:11
agc93__Eggman: older than that. I've tried a couple of combinations of GeForce 210's, 9800's, 9600's and 8400's. None of them work properly. Turning on Xinerama usually breaks, but TwinView works for just two of them03:11

ictadvice?03:13
yam_I m not Im tring to backup my desktop files03:13
cfhowlettyam_: maybe backup your /home data and clean install at this point?  Broken system is broken.  Fix it or lose it.03:13
lidaryam_, make a live cd to run from .. back up important stuff then just start over .. it "is|" fixable however faster easier for you to start over im sure03:13
somsipagc93: Option         "TwinView" "1"03:13
__Eggmaneither the G930 or the x3 will be fine, which ever fits better into your budget03:13
yam_lidar: I dont know what is live cd03:14
somsipagc93: big monitor on DFP and little one on CRT. Worked very easiy with nvidia-settings03:14
__Eggmandepending on the games you intend to play, I'd start with a GT640 (~$110 USD) and work your way up depending on your needs03:14
yam_lidar: please be simple Im new03:14
cfhowlett!live cd|yam_03:14
ubottuyam_: The Ubuntu Desktop CD is a "LiveCD" which can be run without altering existing files on your harddrive. Especially useful for testing your hardware's compatibility, it also includes an install option.03:14
h22turboyam_: live cd is ubuntu iso burnt to a CD. u can boot up ubuntu in a live env from the CD03:15
__Eggmanagc: sorry to leave you hanging, I don't have any experience w/ twinview :(03:15
cfhowlettyam_: you can also create a live USB03:15
yam_I installed it from a bootable usb03:15
cfhowlettyam_: same same03:15
yam_I still have it03:15
h22turboyam_: that will give u a graphical desktop again... then u can mount your ubuntu partition and save whatever u want and also try to fix your problems03:15
bruteforceyam_: then the bootable usb is your live media03:16
yam_how step by step? please03:16
agc93somsip: just tried apt-get installing nvidia-current, rebooting, then all my monitors appear as disabled in nvidia-settings. If I change one back to Separate X Screen and restart X, Compiz crashes, Unity never loads and the desktop is unusable. With just one monitor03:17
h22turboyam_: google is your friend man... use it... esp if you are new to linux and trying to do stuff. google has millions of step by step howto guides with pictures and everything03:17
h22turboyam_: a lot easier than somebody tryin to type everything out on IRC03:17
cfhowlettyam_: plug in your usb, reboot, change the bios to booot from the usb and then install.  You said you did this already so it's the same process.03:17
somsipagc93: ah, well I'm not in unity/compiz so I'm not sure how badly that might affect things. If I paste xorg.conf would that help?03:18
agc93somsip: maybe. I was more just getting at the fact that wasn't working.03:18
yam_cfhowlett: I did it before but it will erase all of my files03:18
h22turboyam_: google search ubuntu live cd recovery and u will find lots of howto guides on what you are trying to do03:19
somsipagc93: then maybe I can't help more. I'm no expert - I just have the same config and, except for some kernel module build problems I had, this worked out of the box for me03:19
cfhowlettyam_: which is why you backup your /home first.03:19
somsipagc93: the module is loading ok is it?03:19
yam_which I failed to do the backup03:19
agc93somsip: Not sure. Seems to be. lsmod has it there. But nvidia-settings thinks all of my displays are disabled03:19
h22turboyam_: it will not erase all your files... you are just booting from cd/usb... then you must mount the actual partition u installed ubuntu on... then u can make changes to it and/or fix it03:20
yam_thats all I need a back up03:20
SpiifyHow about a prntium g640t for cpu?03:20
_pepitorhi buddiesanybody knows what's up with undernet servers? I can't connect!03:20
cfhowlett_pepitor: servers are changing over.  It'll be awhile ...03:20
h22turboyam_: like i said, google ubuntu live cd recovery (use the same process even tho you are using live usb)03:21
somsipagc93: this may be unrelated, but I did have the same. Make sure that the module is present and built for the kernel you're running. That whatever you show for uname -r is in the list of modules built by dpkg when you install the drivers03:21
_pepitorokie, long time I don't log into IRC...  thanks! :)03:21
yam_tell me what to google h2203:21
h22turboyam_: backup important stuff like pics, docs, whatever... then format ur hard drive and do a fresh install of ubuntu03:21
__EggmanSpiify: Good, but it may struggle on some games03:21
h22turboyam_: ubuntu live cd recovery03:22
agc93somsip: That's what the original problem was. NVIDIA's drivers off the website build the 304.43 driver, but with a 173 module, so they fail. I can't work out how to force the module version03:22
somsipagc93: Purge everything nvidia. Start again.03:22
h22turboyam_: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CategoryBackupRecovery03:22

AndroUserThe way the root password is when you first install... I want it back :-P03:47
membreyailiteck multi-touch according to xinput --list03:47
jrib!root | AndroUser03:47
ubottuAndroUser: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo03:47
jribAndroUser: that wiki page explains how03:47

membreyathe video card is an Intel GMA 3150.  Shouldn't that be in the default install?04:04
Guest95517cfhowlett, no, it gets so far past grub then bleah....  Something about a broken pipe at this point, but the disk was totally full before I started clearing out old apt caches and trying to repartition.04:05
cfhowlettGuest95517: also, if he's running vista and has only 250 gig HDD, I'm guessing this is an older box which means MBR scheme.04:05
Zeptis95517: 'broken pipe' is an error returned by X11, if that's any help in narrowing it down.04:06
cfhowlettGuest95517: you got issues, son.  :)  Assuming you're not contemplating "fixing" Vista, seems to me the best option is to optimize ubuntu.  You're limited as there're already 3 primary partitions, so you can't add another primary without violating the mbr and breaking things.  My suggestion?  Delete/Reinstall (pita, I know, but whatchagonnado?04:08

h22turboi dont see why its so hard for people to use google. ive been here for like 2-3 hours... and every question asked here has a solution/answer just by doing a simple google search05:04
LiDaR!google05:04
ubottuWhile Google is useful for helpers, many newer users don't have the google-fu yet. Please don't tell people to "google it" when they ask a question.05:04
cfhowlett!google|h22turbo05:04
ubottuh22turbo: please see above05:04
king_cobratoo many trackers on google..05:05
h22turbowell thats just dumb... cause ive answered every question here in the past 3 hours just by doing a simple google search then copy and paste them the answer here05:05
ChogyDanh22turbo: I agree with you.  Folks should at least give google a try.   It's frustrating when you google for it, and it is like the top result05:05
LiDaRback when i started using linux people were mean i was told go google it and rtfm a few timeslol05:05
h22turboif they're that lazy... or dumb... they dont need to use linux lol05:06

timatoothposix on mac is out of date05:10
LiDaRlotuspsychje, did you try restarting x ?05:10
Zeptisanyone else experienced with openbox?05:10
lotuspsychjeZeptis: square mouse pointer is corrupt, not a pointer anymore..but disformed05:11
lotuspsychjeLiDaR:command?05:11

h22turbojk dont do that....05:12

Adiepeople need to stop saying "rm -rf" in here -.-05:12
lotuspsychjeh22turbo: you think it didnt google it yet..strugling on this bug for years now05:12
AdieIt's not funny, especially when people here are often new to linux and looking for support05:13
Adie^___^05:13
lotuspsychjeAdie: i agree on that05:13

h22turbotry those results?05:13
LiDaRlotuspsychje, sudo service login-manager restart05:13
h22turbotons of results about that bug05:13
Adieis chromium going to work better than chrome?05:13
lotuspsychjeLiDaR:ok tnx lemme try that later on the machine, you think it would help?05:14
Adieor maybe I should use firefox? idk. I am using chrome now it's it's pretty buggy :<05:14
ChogyDanAdie: not particularly.  the flash is a bit different05:14
LiDaRlotuspsychje, probably not05:14
king_cobrafirefox is a really good browser.. not so buggy05:15
lotuspsychjeh22turbo:ive been reading them all already, nothing suggested helped me05:15
LiDaRlotuspsychje, however if restrting x makes it go away then there may be a setting in your x config to fix it05:15

Adieso then... gksudo nautilus?05:20
Adieam i right?05:20
AdieDawn262, you don't need to log into ubuntu as root to do that.05:21
Dawn262??05:21
Adieyou simply need to open a file manager as root05:21
Dawn262yeah   but I forgot how to do that!05:22
Dawn262dain bramage05:22
Adienautilus is the default one in ubuntu, so if you use "gksudo nautilus" you shoudl have no issue copying05:22
Dawn262will try     brb05:22
Adiejust don't delete your filesystem while you do that D:05:22

yam_and do i need to update clamav my self or it updates automaticly?05:57
LiDaRyam_, your running a mail server  ?05:58
crizisyam_, you can install 'checkinstall' package, then you can do "checkinstall -D -y" instead of "make install" so you get .deb out of sources which can be easily uninstalled05:58

lotuspsychjeyam_:does clamav have rootkit support?05:58

h22turbogetting exploited and viruses/malware is 2 totally different things dude.... lol06:02
coolstarfishbait: HTML5 video still works, riet?06:02
h22turboa antivirus is not going to protect your server or linux pc from getting exploited06:02
IBM1234now is an xploit and a virus the same thing, b/c then will the antivirus check for xploits?06:03
crizislotuspsychje, "linux servers" hardly get exploited that often, crappy web software is what gets exploited usually06:03
h22turboIBM1234: a exploit (or your pc getting exploited) and a antivirus scanner is 2 totally different things. a antivirus will not help in any way and will not detect a exploit if your computer is vulnerable06:04
lotuspsychjecrizis: to stay a bit ontopic, you saying an ubuntu server is fully safe against specialized rootkits?06:04

lotuspsychjefishbait: just re-ask your question once in a while mate06:06
crizislotuspsychje, that's pretty unanswerable question06:07
crizislotuspsychje, capable admin can prevent getting any specialized rootkits on the server, to put it shortly06:07

lotuspsychjecrizis: i know common sense can save us alot of trouble, but still every day new tricks in tha house to exploit linux servers06:08
h22turboIBM1234: u dont need one for linux.... autorun stuff works on windows... and malware that uses USB spread (autorun) only works on windows06:08

h22turbothere is malware and viruses for linux... but its pretty rare06:10
h22turbou dont need a antivirus tho06:10
crizislotuspsychje, 1) allow ssh only from certain ip's/hosts which you really need 2) install only services you actually use 3) mount /home and /var/www with noexec flag so you can't run binaries out of them, 4) jailkit the ssh users unless absolutely needed, and you've already done the job almost impossible for 99.99% cases06:11
lotuspsychjeh22turbo: thats a dangerous thing to say..06:11
h22turboeven downloading from torrents, limewire, etc... or browsing the web to an infected (drive-by) website that infects computers.... will 99.8% of the time not infect a linux computer06:11

susundbergin the media that is read-only malware cannot write changes ..06:17
Blue1there is also a security through obscurity measure -- port 22 is blocked to the outside world - works inside the lan - if you want to ssh from the outside, you can move the listening port.06:18
h22turboi know a lot about viruses, spreading malware, botnets, etc etc... and its very very rare your linux box will be infected by one browsing the web or downloading stuff from the internet (like movies, music, programs from known websites)06:18

fishbaiti located a lib flashplayer.so for 11.2.202.236 and swapped accordingly now opera works perfectly06:40
fishbaitokay so the root issue is opera 12.01 is incompatible with flashplayer 11.2.202.238 for future reference the fix is to *completely remove* flash player 11.2.202.238 and install and older version 11.2.202.236 worked for me06:43

somanHi all. Cannot build codelite Ubuntu 12.04 32bit. I'm getting error asm/errno.h: file not found. Here is etc/environment file's contents: C_INCLUDE_PATH="/usr/include/i386-linux-gnu" CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH="/usr/include/i386-linux-gnu". What could be a problem?07:18
sam___sudo su or sudo -i07:18
sam___?07:18
LiDaRsoman, looks like your missing gcc or parts of07:18
tsimpsonsam___: use "sudo -i" if you want a "root shell"07:19
geirhasam___: «sudo -s» instead of «su» or  «sudo -i» instead of «su -»07:19
somanLiDaR: how can I fix it?07:19
histosoman: is there a reason you don't want to use codelite from teh software center?07:19
sam___I need it for compiling07:19
sam___whch one do i need?07:19
tsimpsonsam___: you don't need to be root to compile anything07:19
somanhisto: I need last from codelite's SVN07:19
sam___tar.gz packages i read it in a guide i should be root.07:20
BlackWebis Anyone familiar with Samba, My Question is through the gui interface then I'm able to add a samba user thats not a user on the local linux system, which when doing so it asks for Windows Username, & password then above for Unix account it says asterisk, Well how would i do that on a server through commandline, so that a windows user can access share without having local account on actual server07:20
LiDaRsoman, i dont remebr the package names off top of my head07:20
k1l_sam___: just use sudo <command>07:20
sam___http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/softinstall.html07:20
geirhasam___: Then the guide is wrong. Only an install requires root, if you install it under /usr or /opt07:21
k1l_sam___: its the ubuntu way to not be root all the time. so most howtos which are for linux dont expect that ubuntu way07:21
LiDaRsoman, apt-cache search gcc should show what you need maybe apt-cache search build07:21
histosam___: you don't need tob e root to compile only to install. but the correct way would be sudo -i07:21
timfrostsoman: the compile dependencies will be  needed.  They will be installed with 'sudo apt-get build-dep codelite'07:21
geirhasam___: ./configure && make && sudo make install07:21
histosam___: I would suggest using checkinstall to install packages from source07:21
histo!checkinstall | sam___07:21
ubottusam___: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!07:21
dagerikhow do i troubleshoot that an external monitor is not detected by the 'Display' menu in the settings?07:22

somantimfrost: the message in russian and I'm translating: no packages with source code were found for codelite. No one package will be updated installed or removed. E: you should fill sources.list putting sources' URI in it.07:28

Name141I assume they'll start rolling that down to old customers not on Gen407:32
timfrostsoman: there is a version of codelite in the universe repository (at least for 12.04/precise).  If you enable that repository, you should have access to the necessary packages.  You might also find that the version of codelite in the repository is suitabl;e, so that you don't need to build  frpom source07:33

BenkinoobyLiDaR, since the laptop is elderly i thought it might not have a network card07:54

Kevin1aI'm nearing the limits of my frustration here.  Maybe one of you helpful individuals can ease my anger.  I am getting stuttering (cutting in and out, sounding robotic, popping and crackling) sound on my system.  I first experienced it using Window$ 7, and reinstalled the drivers a million times, tried 2 external soundcards (some of which linked to wireless headset so it can't be the cables), and tried just about everything else.  I got frust07:55
Kevin1arated, blamed it on Window$, and installed Ubuntu on the second hard disk.  Strangely, I still have the issue.  What in the world could cause cutting-out audio that is cross platform, cross sound-card, CPU-load independent (happens even when playing a regular mp3), not a codec problem (problem occures in VLC which uses it's own codecs), etc.  Any ideas?  The system has decent specs.  Built in audio is Realteck, Audio Card I added is Creative07:55

iamtotalyscrewedUbuntu will never move forward as an operating system because it lacks the users willing to help that it desperately needs.

When I first booted, my boot menu had the usual linux generic, recovery mode, both memtest options, and my windows 7 entry, but it also had like five identical entries labeled "Ubuntu 12.04.1 (12.04) (on /dev/sda5)". I installed grub customizer to remove the duplicates (im using burg, by the way). I uncheck everything except win10:40
twalbaumdows 7 and one of the ubuntu 12.04.1 entries and save it. when i refresh it, it generates NEW ubuntu 12.04.1 entries and they are checked. so i started out with about five, and now i have 12 because i keep trying to get rid of them.10:40

b3rz3rk3r_morning all, i need some advice on installing ubuntu to an ssd. I have windows on its own separate drive and will be giving Ubuntu the whole SSD. Will grub still properly overwrite the windows boot loader even though its on another drive?10:57
WarOfTheNerdb3rz3rk3r_, you can specify the drive it goes on10:58
WarOfTheNerdb3rz3rk3r_, to be honest though, I'd just change boot order in the BIOS and leave the Windows bootloader intact10:59
dr_willisb3rz3rk3r_: tell grub to install to the mbr of the ssd and set bios to boot from the ssd10:59
dr_willisthets mt setup with a 128gb ssd just for linux10:59
WarOfTheNerdbecause Windows 8 and future versions are going to be harder to work with in the future10:59
WarOfTheNerddr_willis, SSD is more valuable on Linux with the way it jams up under heavy I/O load11:00
twalbaumcan anyone tell me why my boot menu is generating duplicate entries every time i refresh it in grub customizer?11:00
b3rz3rk3r_WarOfTheNerd, dr_willis ok thanks guys, will do!11:00
dr_williswith ssd here 12.10 boots into unity in like 10 sec ;)11:01

wibbit33Does multimedia still lag with banshee?12:16

BlackWebIs anyone familiar with samba, to I know in order to allow a user to access your samba file, without having a local account on machine you'd have a entry in the /etc/samba/smbusers, But giving that user a password would you just do smbpasswd to the local account that you tied the username to, or is there a different way13:16
jribjalexandru: depends on what you actually want to do.  Python is a great language though; #python for more help with it13:16
gryjalexandru, that's a language choice question; different languages have different applications. as this is an ubuntu support channel, i might suggest we discuss that in #ubuntu-offtopic13:16

bazhang!notunity | Elvano14:05
ubottuElvano: Ubuntu 11.10 and higher use GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic14:05

linucksHi, I'm having issues on 12.04 after I suspend my thinkpad x220t. For some reason it only picks up some wireless networks and I cannot reconnect to my home network. The wifi card is Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6205 (rev 34). Wondering if anyone can please help me?14:11

bazhangaptana studio ganster14:12
linucksgordonjcp, hmmm I thought I tried that, but which way did you go about disabling and re-enabling the wireless?14:12
gordonjcpganster: you don't get dreamweaver for linux14:12
gordonjcpganster: it might work in wine14:12
gansterbazhang, ok let me try14:12
marcappuccinoit is not native dreamweaver only through wine maybe14:13
gordonjcplinucks: just from the nm-applet14:13
marcappuccinodualboot windows?14:13

craigbass1976linucks, I've had trouble for some time waking up a laptop; when I do something like shut the lid at work (while I'm on the network there) and then cracking it open again at home.14:14
gordonjcpganster: having done quite a bit of backend work on websites, I find the best way to deal with dreamweaver sites is to delete them completely and start from scratch ;-)14:14
ganstermarcappuccino, , i don like  wine isn't  working fine with ubuntu14:14
linuckscraigbass1976, hmm I see, have you had any issues like it only showing _some_ of the available networks? found any fixes?14:14
corentinmarcappuccino: guess i'll just kill that stupid NM14:14
craigbass1976gordonjcp, heh14:14
marcappuccinoit depends what you run - i pesonally dont like wine, but if you want extra compatibility try crossover for linux14:15
linucksthe thing is, this works on fedora, but not ubuntu14:15
linucks:/14:15
ganstergordonjcp,  why from the scratch is more preferable than dreamweaver14:15
craigbass1976linucks, eventually I can get on.  I see your fedora issue though...  I tried 16 for a bit and didn't have this problem at all.14:16
gordonjcpganster: because dreamweaver produces horrible unusable code14:16

drPoohttp://paste.ubuntu.com/1171889/14:29
drPoojrib, http://paste.ubuntu.com/1171889/14:29
jribdrPoo: a general issue with crontab is that, for example, your PATH is not the same; you could also try changing @reboot to some current time so you can better test without rebooting.  Lastly, you could put something like /usr/bin/touch /tmp/script_runs to verify the script runs14:29

ElvanoHey lot, are the guys who helped me  earlier with my GUI still here?15:28
DarkAceLaptopmy volume randomly resets to 0 and mutes, and I cannot set it back unless I reboot? any idea why, and/or any ideas on how to fix?15:29
LiDaRDarkAceLaptop, does syslog / dmesg show an error sounds like pun intended module unloading15:29
mnewtonjpds, cat /var/log/mysql.err yields nothing15:29
DarkAceLaptopwhen I turn up the volume and un-mute, I hear nothing. if I plug something in when the volume is up and un-muted it resets to muted and 0 again15:29
killer_can anyone suggest me a good document manager?15:30
Alpha-OmegaLiDaR: I knew about the security updates, but I didn't know that you get updates of new versions as well, thought it was only security updates15:30
ElvanoJust wanted to tell you I've tried both the Xubuntu and Gnome interfaces and eventually went for the gnome one. Seems to work nicely up till now. Thank you15:30

Alpha-OmegaLiDaR: so why exactly is there 6 month release cycles if new software is automatically added in the repos and not frozen after release?15:31
LiDaRAlpha-Omega, the updates are new versions if you have version 12.5.1 .. something needs fixed they release 12.5.2 ect. ect.15:31
LiDaRAlpha-Omega, non critical updates are tested to make sure they have less bugs before releasing to everyone15:32
DarkAceLaptopLiDaR, am I looking for something in particular? "audio" "sound" and "speaker" is not found when running dmesg15:32
=== foobArrrr is now known as foobArrr
Alpha-OmegaLiDaR: non critical being the kernel, GNU utils, shh, etc? so I'll be getting updates for Firefox this that all the time huh, I just installed Ubuntu yesterday?15:33
LiDaRDarkAceLaptop, could be cryptic post your dmesg output to pastebin15:33
mneptokAlpha-Omega: no new versions are added to repos unless they address security vulnerabilities and cannot be backported.15:34
LiDaRAlpha-Omega, if there is a security issue .. the update comes faster if its just a new version .. there is no rush and they test more there is probably some explanation on ubuntu site somehwere what method used15:34
Alpha-Omegamneptok: ohh ok, so the new version of firefox, 14.0.1 most likely addresses a security vulnerability as well, not just new features15:35
mneptokAlpha-Omega: correct. you will have that version of Firefox, with some point releases to address backported fixes.15:35
Alpha-Omegaalright, makes sense now, just was amazed where firefox was such a new version15:35
mneptokAlpha-Omega: this is assuming you use only the default repositories.15:36

motaka2ok I was installing the wrong CD so I just took that out and I am installing the new cd it asked me the language and then It just went on a black screen on the top of that screen I can see the blinking cursor, what is happening ? it is more than 10 mins that it is blinking15:37
LiDaRAlpha-Omega, if your just a desktop user and adventurous you could always use testing/unstable but things break frequently15:37
Alpha-Omegaone thing that should be fixed though in the Ubuntu minimal install is having the default suggested place of Grub to be installed be the drive which the install was done and root was installed, not sda when sdb is what was used for the install, had an issue with that yesterday15:37
jribAlpha-Omega: I think firefox is somewhat of a special case: http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Ubuntu-will-now-track-Mozilla-updates-1386831.html15:37

LiDaRDarkAceLaptop, see the line PME# d1 d2 ect repeating .. thats your error message i bet15:39
Alpha-Omegajrib: yep, it seems that firefox will be updated with every new release, odd why they chose to do that, most likely because of the frequent updates and wide-spread usage of the browser I'm guessing15:39
Lorran0l0v3, the two things are very different, in fact the virtual machine comprises some virtual hardware where your computer comprises physical (and possibly different) hardware. It might be that your installation media is corrupted, you could check it when you switch on your computer by choosing the appropriate option in the very first menu you get15:39
motaka2no help ?15:41
LiDaRDarkAceLaptop, the webcam is throwing errors also it seems its a external usb one ?15:41

n0l0v3it scrolls through the text screen so fast when doing the install I can't really make sense of it then it just freezes. really strange15:44
DarkAceLaptopLiDaR, really? I don't have a USB webcam15:46
DarkAceLaptopI have a webcam, but it's built-in15:46
Lorran0l0v3, you may also check your media image before burning it, you need to download the md5 checksum along with the image and then using a program which computes md5 sums. On linux it commonly comes with your distro and having the checksum file and the image in the same directory you can run md5sum -c checksumsFile and see what it says. On Windows you need a program to compute md5 sums.15:46

Lorrawildcard-ger, sure, you can install Windows first and Ubuntu after and when you install Ubuntu you edit your partitioning scheme to suit your needs. Do format the share partition with a filesystem readable by both OS's (e.g. NTFS)15:58

lickalottno, it's mainly gui based, but it was written in TCL/TK and I don't have a decompiler.  So my work around is to make my own realtime "gui" by redirecting a single line per second to another file and then tailing that file with the -f17:00
conradindo dont need a decompiler for tcl17:00

conradinI speak expect.17:01
lickalottright.  the particular GUI i'm trying to mirror is .tk17:01

lickalott?17:04
SolarisB2ythe method you explained using for reading one line of a file17:04
gasbakidhello world17:05
lickalottthe main thing I need is to be able to adjust the interval at which the redirection happens.  But if I can redirect the entire content of the large file to another (file.1) then "watch -n 1" file.1 that may work?17:05

KircleIf an ether cable doesn't have what category it is printed on the cable how might I find out which one it is?17:06
SolarisB2yKircle: possibly you can derive some ideas from the speed they auto-negotiate too if it works?17:07
KircleWhat do you mean by 'auto-negotiate'?17:08
SolarisB2yunless you set speed/duplex on a hard code - it autonegotiates17:08
gordonjcpKircle: it's probably CAT5E17:08

yattaif I close lid of laptop suspend is activated and lock screen too but it seems that suspend freezes my screen after moving mouse how to fix this?17:08
SolarisB2ybut it could be CAT617:08

dtcrshr I need help in setting up ubuntu networking so locally (via iptables or something) all traffic to web servide (p 80) go redirected to my proxy server. Iv created the rules, changed the forwarding to 1 but didnt worked, is there a different way to use iptables under ubuntu?17:10
SolarisB2ybiggest difference is the bandwidth and features etc for crosstalk etc but if thats a result of extra padding in the bundle - cool17:10

ActionParsnipjtannenbaum: what file system did you format it?19:11

ActionParsnipEnderTheThird: have you tried the boot option:  nomodeset19:11
cristian_cHi19:11
thierry__Please, i am trying to port ubuntu-core on my Pandaboard B1 , i have installed Xorg and openBox, for now, i'm using a serial terminal to get output: my first question is, when i launsh startx , nothing happens , normally the terminal should change? is it a miciom restricion?19:11
ActionParsnipjtannenbaum: sudo mkdir /media/sdb1; sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb119:12
thierry__ second question : what packages should i add to get the output via HDMI?19:12
EnderTheThirdActionParsnip:  I can do that now.  brb.19:12
jtannenbaumActionParsnip: great, thanks19:12
jtannenbaumhow can I make it do that every time19:12
ActionParsnipjtannenbaum: did it mount?19:13
jtannenbaumyes19:13
ActionParsnipjtannenbaum: run:  sudo blkid | grep sdb119:13
ActionParsnipjtannenbaum: you can then use the UUID and add it to /etc/fstab  and the option will be used every time19:13
Alpha-Omegaalright, nm-applet doesn't show up on tint2 but when I randomly click on where it should be, it comes up and I select my network and nothing happens19:13

jtannenbaumyea I figured.. what's the exact thing I should add I can never remember19:14
cristian_cI'm using lostirc, and I would change the quit message. I've looked for in the lostirc hidden folder of my Home directory and I've found a file called events.conf. There are these lines in this file: quit = 15--  00%1 16 has quit  15( 09%2 15)   quit2 =  15--  00%1 16 has quit, but I don't think it is the right file19:14
EnderTheThirdActionParsnip:  No dice.  Just getting a black screen.  Trying to ctrl+alt+f1 to a terminal, but no luck.19:14
jtannenbaumoh duh I bet it's because there's already an fstab entry for /etc/sdb119:15
cristian_cHow can I change my personal quit message? What's the right file to edit?19:15
cristian_cAny ideas?19:15
jtannenbaummaybe I should just comment that out19:15

cristian_cWeThePeople, I'm using Lubuntu, and lostirc is a lightweight irc client19:16
jtannenbaumdoes journalling really use like 100 GB or is that just WD screwing with me19:16
cristian_cActionParsnip, I don't understand?§ Can you repeat? :)19:16
ActionParsnipjtannenbaum: 5% I believe, you can use tune2fs to change it19:17
EnderTheThirdActionParsnip:  nvm, I forgot the space before nomodeset when changing the boot options19:17
EnderTheThirdActionParsnip:  Now I can get to a terminal.  I'll see if I can get it to show me a GUI with the custom xorg.conf now.19:17
ActionParsnipcristian_c: the /quitirc command can be tailed with some text, its pretty worthless tbh19:17
TeduardoIs there a MySQL 5.6 pkg for Ubuntu 12.04?19:18
ActionParsnipEnderTheThird: you can use:  Xorg -configure     to make a skeleton xorg.conf file you can copy to /etc/X1119:18
jtannenbaumis journalling good or bad for a drive that will have torrent data on it19:18
ActionParsnipjtannenbaum: its probably not needed if its just user data19:19
