icariouscan anyone tell me, which ubuntu repo contains the broadcom 4313 drivers?00:06
black_13is there a way to remaster the unbutu install cd to boot off a hard drive00:07
snwhicarious, the restricted repe "bcmwl-kernel-source" package00:07
pragmaticenigmaicarious: You need to install the firmware-b43-installer which should enable the ability to install the drivers00:08
icarioussnwh: isnt it the package "firmware-b43-installer" which contains the driver?00:08
icariouspragmaticenigma: thanks mate00:08
icariousi was confused which package contains the drivers ..00:08
pragmaticenigmathe installer doesn't contain the driver, just the definition for the hardware detection to be able to identify and retrieve the correct drivers00:09
pragmaticenigmaicarious: after you install that package, you will see the device appear in the additional drivers utiility00:09
icariouspragmaticenigma: so installing the package "firmware-b43-installer" will fetch the drivers for Broadcom 431300:09
snwhicarious, I have the broadcom 4313 and all I install bcmwl-kernel-source00:09
icariouspragmaticenigma: thanks00:09
snwhicarious the b43-installer will just fetch them from the internet.00:10
pragmaticenigmalike everything snwh , there is more than one way to do things... just trying to use the easiest way that I know00:10
snwhpragmaticenigma, indeed there is, I just let the additional drivers dialog do its thing.00:11

wasanzyplease am trying to create a startup disk using the startup disk creator on ubuntu 12.04 but it is not working00:35
daemongplvisioneer: I don't have experience with cryptsetup but from google it looks like it only encrypts the drive with no option to make it bootable. So to use that external drive you need an OS that has cryptsetup installed to be prompted for password to open the drive.00:35
wasanzythe iso if centos iso00:35
daemongplvisioneer: what OS is on the external HD?00:36
snwhwasanzy, I do believe the startup disk creator doesn't do isos outside of ubuntu00:36
visioneerdaemongpl ive created a boot partition for that00:36
wasanzyso what can I use instead? because I need to create a startup disk using my pendrive00:37
daemongplvisioneer, boot partition has to boot some sort of OS with cryptsetup installed to access the drive00:37
visioneerspecifically, im following this tut http://www.edwiget.name/2011/11/administration-backtrack-5r1-full-disk-encryption-install-to-hard-drive/00:37
snwhwasanzy, you can try unetbootin or the command "sudo dd if=[location of your iso] of=[location of your pendrive, /dev/sdX]"00:37

unlessKentos, the version available at USC didn't work, then I downloaded a upgraded version from oracle website as .deb and reinstalled it via USC again, then it stoped being recognized by USC and this one remains with same issues as the preview.02:18

squidnip_so, I have a permissions/groups question02:33
daemongpldietrichman: whats your command to open the network share?02:33
squidnip_I want to allow only certain users access to a folder, so I created a group titled folderaccess, and added those users to the group02:34
dietrichmani have been accessing network  shares via my home folder and then mounting it manually, the share set up isnt the problem, its setting up the automount in the terminal.....02:34
squidnip_then I changed the group of the folder to folderaccess02:34
squidnip_but users in that group still get permission denied. chmod on it is rwxrwx---02:35
jagginesssquidnip_, well if you changed anything with "group" memberships, be sure to logout then relogin02:36
squidnip_accessing it from ssh, can i just jump out of the session and back in?02:36
jagginesssquidnip_, ask a better question.. you obviously know that is a logoff02:37
squidnip_I'm new to this, but I tried it and it worked02:37
jagginessok good, so it works.02:38
squidnip_awesome, thanks02:38
squidnip_more advanced question now: I'm doing this to ultimately mount an NFS share I'm setting up from my laptop02:40
squidnip_from my reading I have to sync the uids on them02:40
squidnip_did that, still getting permission denied errors even though the uids and usernames match02:40
squidnip_do i have to also create a matching group or something on my laptop (osx)?02:41

The apt-get is failing with a 404 which, after reading, is due to the release no longer being supported. As I'm only trying to install a package to get of this old release, is there a workaround to enable the installation of vsftpd? Thanks!02:43
ikoniaKentos: tcp wrappers or iptables, or sshd hosts02:43
NisstyreKentos: is this for ssh?02:43
cfhowlettunless: but ikonia is spot on.  USC packages are managed by USC ...02:43

NisstyreKentos: the best solution is to use ssh key authentication only02:45
NisstyreKentos: then only people with the correct private key can connect02:45
ikoniathat won't limit it to one host02:45
Nisstyreno, it won't02:45
ikoniathat will limit it to one key02:45
ikoniahis request was to limit it to one host02:46
Nisstyrebut it's a better solution imo02:46
ikonianot one user02:46
ikoniaNisstyre: no, it's not, if he wants to limit it to one host, then your solution is not what he asked for02:46

ikoniaKentos: there is nothing wrong with keys, it's a great tool, but it will not limit access from one host as you initially requested02:47

Guest43458hello, is there any downside to 'upgrading' to Lubuntu or Xubuntu from Ubuntu via apt versus a fresh install?  I'm a bit confused because they seem to be presented as unique operating systems but are they actually just GUI wrappers with different resource requirements and features?04:37
silverarrowlotuspsychje, I installed with package installer?04:37
lotuspsychjeGuest43458: its always recommended to clean install new ubuntu version04:38
silverarrowlotuspsychje, yeah, when lunched from terminal all it seems to do is reinstall04:38
lotuspsychjesilverarrow:if you downloaded from web, software centre should open to install.04:39

Guest43458right… probably better to just do fresh install than shotgun surgery of packages ;)04:43
wilee-nileeGuest43458, It depends on your skill level all of those desktops can be removed and be replaced by the other, with pkg install lists, as far as speed I have nevr noticed any didderence.04:45
alprewell unity, gnome does like to use over 700MB it seems, maybe more RAM needed04:46
alpreGuest43458: then just installing lxde and choosing it at login would help still instead of reinstalling04:47
Guest43458alpre: I'd probably upgrade the ram but the system uses rd-ram and that stuff is rare and expensive now. ( well IIRC it was always expensive, just not as rare )04:49

wilee-nileeanternat2, I think you might make a thread on the ubuntu forums, it look pretty broken from here.06:28
m3powalso make sure it's fanned propertly06:28
kunjiBut doing that requires lifting up the processor, so I would try everything else first06:29
kunjiIncluding updating to the latest drivers06:29
gordonjcpGeoffrey2: depends what you're trying to do06:29
m3powkunji you have a laptop ?06:29
gordonjcpGeoffrey2: I tend to go with four, for boot, swap, root and home06:29

m3powrapstudio 4 month old laptop ?06:30
kunjiProbably not rapstudio, try pretty much everything else first.06:30
kunjiAlso you don't want to void any warranty you may have06:30
wilee-nileeGeoffrey2,  1 for the OS 1 for swap, you can seperate home if needed to upgrade or change the OS.06:30
tasslehoffUbuntu 12.04 offers me no restricted drivers for my T530, but I suspect I need an NVIDIA one to make my minidisplayport work.06:30
rapstudioi haven't updated the graphic drivers.... kunji06:31
kunjifishcooker: It's basically robust out of the box.06:31
kunjirapstudio: Well, give that a try ^_^06:31
anternat2wilee-nilee:  thank you for your suggestion06:31
Geoffrey2ok, I'm dual booting with Windows 7, which is already installed, and I have a good 120+ gigs free for Ubuntu....06:31
gordonjcpfishcooker: robust?  Buy a good-quality case, possibly a ruggedised rackmount case06:31
gordonjcpfishcooker: mount your mechanical drives on rubber shockmounts, or stick to SSD if you can live with the limited space06:32
rapstudioby the way....is there any reason behind the heatup of my laptop06:32
rapstudioi mean idon't run too many processes06:32
Geoffrey2ok, so the /, /home, and swap still pretty much covers it....06:32
gordonjcpfishcooker: What exactly are you trying to do?06:32
gordonjcpGeoffrey2: and /boot06:33
=== n is now known as Guest96025
kunjiMaybe, check if you have any processes that have run wild and are running up 100% cpu.  You can see what is using the most by using the top command in the terminal.06:33
wilee-nileeGeoffrey2, You want to be aware of the limit of the number of primary partitions on a HD, and installing ubuntu in a logical in a extended partition with the swap most likely.06:33
gordonjcpGeoffrey2: that only needs to be quite small - 256MB is overkill - but it needs to be ext2 ideally06:33
wilee-nileegordonjcp, boot partitions are not hardly needed.06:34
wilee-nileebut to each their own.06:34
gordonjcpwilee-nilee: yeah, but they make your life a lot easier06:34
gordonjcpthere's no reason *not* to have one06:34
kunjiWhy would he have one?06:35
Geoffrey2all of ubuntu is going in the extended partition...06:35
wilee-nileegordonjcp, maybe your life as that is what you use, but not really grub can be purged and installed in the OS and the mbr.06:35
gordonjcpGeoffrey2: yeah, that's fine06:35

hateballpndemc_: You're looking to just copy a directory from one host to another, over SSH (SCP) ?06:37
fishcookergordonjcp: ubuntu server with secured wireless connection, apache, mysql, php, JRE, tomcat +perl06:37
pndemc_gordonjcp, managing a server, and I need to duplicate a gameserver directory06:37
pndemc_for setting up another server of the same game06:37
kunjipndemc_: you can just use get and put (maybe need a -r to make them recursive), unless it's an old version of ssh you're dealing with06:37
gordonjcppndemc_: right, but what are you actually trying to do with this directory?  Copy it from one machine to another?06:37
pndemc_nopf, just another folder in the same /home/ direcotry06:38
gordonjcppndemc_: scp -r <source> <dest> ought to work, or maybe rsync -ave ssh --recursive <source> <dest>06:38
gordonjcppndemc_: oh, then just ssh in and cp -r06:38
pndemc_what's the cp -r for?06:39
gordonjcppndemc_: you want to copy a directory, right?06:39
gordonjcpcp --recursive source dest06:39
kunjifishcooker: You can secure it various ways, including iptables or ufw, snort, etc... security is a large topic, you can install the LAMP stack with one command, it's something like sudo apt-get install lamp-server^06:39
kunjiAnd the ^ is not a typo06:40
hateballI would use rsync, especially if it's something of size06:40
gordonjcppndemc_: -r for "recursive" means "this, and everything below"06:40
kunjiSo that leaves what, JRE, tomcat+perl?  Which should all install easily through Synaptic, unless you want the Oracle version for your JRE, in which case Oracle has direction on their site.06:41

wxlplease tell me there's someone here that can save me. i'm running lubuntu on a netbook with a trackpad. everything was peachy keen and now all of a sudden if i try to move the cursor it scrolls. i do have 2-finger xy scrolling setup on autostart with synclient, so this behavior is not abnormal, but it is when i don't have two fingers on the track pad :) so my question: do you know of any way i can restart the trackpad driver???06:45
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest38562
gordonjcpwxl: if you reboot then anything you did with synclient on the command-line will be forgotten06:46
Geoffrey2thanks...can the updated ext for windows handle ext4 partitions, or should i stick with ext3?06:46
wxlgordonjcp: i'm trying to avoid rebooting but i did nothing with synclient between it working and it not working.06:47
gordonjcpwxl: weird06:47
gordonjcpwxl: synaptics is pretty weird and buggy06:47

wxlmodprobe pulls up a variety of mouse drivers06:48
gordonjcpwxl: on my macbook I only ever use an external mouse, because the touchpad is so damn weird06:48
wxlone of which is synaptics06:48
fishcookerkunji: which version of your ubuntu server06:48

fishcookerfor pragmatic matter06:51
kunjifishcooker: I'm running the latest12.04 (as it is an LTS release), though I don't actually run the server version (the difference is more or less just having the GUI by default).  My computer isn't primarily a server though, I just use it as one for my personal convenience.06:51
gordonjcpfishcooker: okay, well as long as you're not expecting more than a couple of simultaneous connections, it might work06:52
kunjigordonjcp: Like my case, where I only expect connections from me :P06:53
gordonjcpkunji: yeah, and if you're only connecting to one server at a time it should be fine06:54
gordonjcpkunji: if you want to do something like ssh in *and* use web *and* use mail, it'll just die06:54

LorSamPau_wdalek_, ubuntu have problems with some video cards, nomodeset helped me other time09:19

ActionParsnipdalek_: have you tried the boot option:  nouveau.blacklist=109:22
LorSamPau_wdalek_, when you are selecting the os before loading it - press F6(Other options) - there will be nomodeset option09:23
ombletukeliswhats up09:23
dalek_ActionParsnip: sounds complicated... I am soooo tired. I am going to try and find this nomodeset this then I may have to quit for the night09:23
ActionParsnipdalek_: not at all09:24
ActionParsnipdalek_: its very simple09:24
LorSamPau_wdalek_, if it isn't there - you can manualy edit the os line by pressing "e" - and add nomodeset09:24
ActionParsnipdalek_: hold shift at boot, delete the words (using keyboard):  quiet splash    and add the word: nouveau.blacklist=1     press ENTER to continue the boot, how is taht in any way hard. Its basically typing..?09:25
LorSamPau_wand to edit the line you must press "e"09:25
dalek_ActionParsnip: I am going to have to write this down since I won't be able to see this when I reboot.09:26
LorSamPau_w1) During the restart, when you see the “Grub Loading” message, immediately press “ESC”  or holde "SHIFT" while booting to get to the grub menu. 2) Highlight the first entry and press “e” to edit the entry. 3) Scroll down to the line that starts with “linux…” and move the cursor to the end. Enter “nomodeset” or "nouveau.blacklist=1" 4) Press Ctrl + X to continue the booting process.09:27

BlackPanxiostat -N should show LV names, but it doesnt on one of my servers. do i need aditional package/module in kernel installed to make device-mapper show proper LV's of disk... ? using ubuntu distro.12:04

iNTElits more easier XD12:04
cfhowlettiNTEl: that's one way to fix it...12:05
ActionParsnipiNTEl: sure you can. you can do anything you can in a live OS that you can in an installed OS except reboot12:05
ActionParsnipiNTEl: hardly needed but yes its easier, just a bit OTT for the sake of a bootloader..12:05
ActionParsnipiNTEl: once you run the terminal you can use the guide and chroot properly and reinstate the bootloader,12:06
^DEMOSS^hello, anybody can help me? i clone my phisical server to virtual using vmware 5.0 converter ( 10.10 lts \ i686 ) but have a failed boot vm. I do some things to install grub 2 again, but failed all. grub error: symbol 'grub_puts_' not found  - is now )12:08
bazhang^DEMOSS^, 10.10 is not LTS12:09
jrib^DEMOSS^: 10.10 is not lts.  10.10 is no longer supported even12:09
bazhang^DEMOSS^, upgrade12:09
^DEMOSS^i cant upgrade12:09
jrib^DEMOSS^: why?12:09
bazhang^DEMOSS^, it's not supported here12:10
ubottuEnd-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades12:10
^DEMOSS^i can't loading my system. couse have problem with grub12:10
ActionParsnip^DEMOSS^: its not supported anymore12:10
ActionParsnip^DEMOSS^: its like calling Microsoft support for windows 95 support, they won't help you as it is dead12:10
cfhowlettIt's not even supported here.12:10
ActionParsnip^DEMOSS^: maverick is also dead12:10
EaglemanSo ActionParsnip you are saying i should ust stick with ssh and not get a webgui?12:11
^DEMOSS^-_- 10.10 is super-pupper secure nano ubuntu, what have non-material system and not ubuntu ?12:11
ActionParsnipEagleman: if you are doing such basic stuff as installing software, you can use SSH for taht and gain a whole bunch of security rather than some junk web interface12:11
dr_willisEagleman:  thats the best way i would think.12:12
dr_willis^DEMOSS^:  what?12:12
ActionParsnip^DEMOSS^: maverick is EOL, all that nonesense is mooted by this fact12:13
Eaglemani will deinstall webmin and zentyal then12:13

jrib!startup | aum__12:17
ubottuaum__: To add programs to start up when you log into your Gnome session go to System>Preferences>Sessions and use the Startup Programs tab. For more information, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddingProgramToSessionStartup - See !boot for starting non-interactive programs at boot12:17
dr_willisaum__:  rc.local is NOT for x/gui apps12:17
jribaum__: don't use rc.local for that12:17
dr_willisuse your users autorun directory12:17
dr_willisor was it autostart12:17
jribdr_willis: ~/.config/autostart/ I guess12:18
cfhowlettdemoss  I guess you're the sysadmin?  Send out word that you're upgrading and sys will be unavailable for ### hours.  Make a plan, make a back, make a download and install your system.  Just my opinion.12:18
aum__jrib, i can not use graphics , its not in my control12:18
jribaum__: if you can't use graphics, what's the point of trying to run firefox?12:18
diverdudehow can i count how many files this command finds? find Plugin/TwigView/tmp/views/ -iname '*.php'12:18
aum__dr_willis, its like a kiosk system on every boot up i need firefox to start12:19

gordonjcpI must admit, I find all this "make it look like Gnome 2" stuff kind of cute13:46

gordonjcpchicognu: each to their own13:47
usr13mobius420: How did you get a bios virus?13:47

mobius420usr13,   my former  roommate decided to be a bad person13:48

mobius420and then i start getting backdoored constantly13:48
mobius420I really need help getting an hdr file extracted from a particular dell bios utility13:49
gordonjcpmobius420: this is probably not the best place for it13:49

m000gleDasEi:  Yeah, the drop-down menu is key.  I have several dozen wallpapers in my Pictures folder, making it inconvenient to use.  It would be nice to have several groups in the drop-down menu.  For example: "Windows Wallpapers", "OSX Wallpapers", "Natty Wallpapers", "Oneiric Wallpapers", "Precise Wallpapers" etc15:25

m000gleOerHeks:  Thanks.  I may do that as a band-aid solution.  Sorting it by drop-down menu has the advantage of only having to load one category at a time.  Once you have dozens of wallpapers, it can take quite a while to load them each time you open Appearance.15:31

ActionParsnipasker: it does as the system will deny access to any other user17:15
TheWardenjacta: try ls /dev/hd* and see if you can see sr017:15
Uber-GeekI created a script that runs vlc in daemon mode, if I do a service moh start it runs, but not from rc.local. The file is in the init.d directory and is executable17:15
guntbertTheWarden: sorry, no idea :(17:15
jactaTheWarden, ls: cannot access /dev/hd*: No such file or directory17:15

SlutaTramsaActionParsnip any idea on my question regarding Volume up/down on my keyboard? (don't mean to bother you..)17:17
TheWardenActionParsnip: well its interfacing with int remotely locally to a socket and therefore doesn't require resolving domains.17:17
ikoniaasker: well, you can't do that as the hard disk will be in use, however you can remove most of it by running an rm -rf as a trigger instead of a firewall17:17
ActionParsnipTheWarden: I'll put it in quotes to make it clearer as you aren't getting it17:17

ActionParsnipTheWarden: do you want the vlc to run on the remote screen only?17:21
TheWardenjacta: no I'm here, trying to solve my own issues :-). Ahh, trying mounting it manually "mount /dev/sr0 /media/temp" without double quotes and make sure the mount path exists, "/media/temp". In this case it should be mounted under /mnt and if we get this to work we can add this to your /etc/fstab17:21
jactaActionParsnip, TheWarden does dmesg says something? http://pastebin.com/FVr9X1bm17:23
TheWardenActionParsnip: no it runs on the system itself. I want VLC to run in full screen mode playing an infinite loop of videos. I'm locally via a script send commands using RC via the Unix socket to start VLC and add items to the play list. Perodicially it checks a remote server for new content if new content is found it downloads it and updates the play list.17:23

Sebastienunp ?17:31
SebastienWhat is this ActionParsnip ?17:31
TheWardenjacta: find out the device name of a usb device with certainty. Then try to mount it a simple mount /dev/device_name /mnt/temp should do the trick. As I stated before make sure the mount point /mnt/temp exists before issuing the command.17:32
TheWardenjacta: blkid should list all devices as well17:32
jactaTheWarden, blkid only gives the sr0 :/17:32
Uber-Geekjrib, it can run via the command line, vlc with the --daemon flag. I can get it to work manually, just not upon bootup17:33
ActionParsnipSebastien: its a one shot app for extracting any archive with a single command, no need to memorise stuff17:33
TheWardenjacta: ensure the cables are secured properly.17:33
TheWardenjacta: try doing sudo blkid17:33
jribUber-Geek: is there a reason you don't just run it on login?17:33
ActionParsnipTheWarden: if you have the app running at startup, you can control it with the web ui. Is that what you need?17:33
jactaTheWarden, check pm for output :o17:33
Uber-Geekit's a server, I need it to run when the machine powers on17:33
TheWardenjacta: you have a usb hug connected?17:34
jactaTheWarden, only thing right now is the usb pen17:34
TheWardenActionParsnip: no I stated what I required, I need to use the RC interface module so that I can send commands to control the player, add files to the play list, etc. without human interaction directly. All this is done via scripts.17:35
ActionParsnipTheWarden: oh, thats pretty fancy17:35
TheWardenjacta: mm the reason I as is because the dmsg stated a usb hub and I was wondering if you were hooking a USB hub up and then plugging devinces into that.17:35
Uber-Geekjrib, this server sits in a remote data center, when we reboot the server, I need the vlc to start up automatically without logging in and executing the command manually17:36
TheWardenActionParsnip: well yes and no but the idea works just getting all these errors and then having it crap out once daily. which the errors is what I'm trying to resolve.17:36
jactaTheWarden, only had mouse/keyboard/pens in it17:36
jactaTheWarden, futhermore, gparted sees it right now as /dev/sdb/17:36
jribUber-Geek: so you have an upstart script you created with this "moh" service?17:37
TheWardenjacta: according to the dmsg you have an ODD HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GT50N running on SATA.17:37
jribUber-Geek: or is this a sys-v style script you created?17:37
jactaTheWarden, must be my cd drive inside it :o17:37
Uber-Geekjrib, I added the init info to it, and made it executable.17:38
jribUber-Geek: this is not a clear answer17:38
TheWardenjacta: yeah have you tried different discs? I see the Logitech keyboard and mouse.... mmm17:38

jribUber-Geek: if you want to stick with sysv-init for some reason, then you should model your script after /etc/init.d/skeleton.  However, ubuntu has moved on to upstart and the scripts are not formatted the same.  There's a very good document at http://upstart.ubuntu.com/cookbook/ about creating init scripts for upstart.  In either case, you should not be attempting to start the init script with commands in17:46

SillyTalkerdr_willis: well i'll try, but i need to copy the image again firs,t where do i find the file please?17:47
jribUber-Geek: well ideally, you would use upstart.  If you don't care about having it managed and just want to run a command at boot, then just put the command in /etc/rc.local itself17:47
dr_willisSillyTalker:  .dmrc is in your home17:47
SillyTalkerdr_willis: ok thanks, i'll let you know if it worked17:48

SillyTalkerdr_willis: are you sure it is still supported though?17:49

=== jesseC is now known as Guest66824
otpicnerpealpre, I have three hard disks.  Windows is on /dev/sda1 and Ubuntu is on /dev/sdb1.  Since it boots into Windows when I turn my computer on, I believe I need to install GRUB to the MBR of /dev/sda18:23
aminosamigoshello :) i want to ask what is the purpose of the .local folder18:23
otpicnerpemy other hard disk is just for extra storage, my D drive on Windows, it is an NTFS partition18:23
servercbeshould I past all the info? Is it Needed.. If it is let me know please18:24
alpreotpicnerpe: you don't need to overwrite the windows mbr on sda, you can use sdb18:24
capribexUpgraded to 12.04 and lost the encryption of Home folder. First boot everything was fine and Ubuntu asked for the encryption passphrase. But then it stopped asking for the passphrase or in other words canceled the encryption by its own will... How do I reinstate encryption? Why did the system delete it?18:24
alpreotpicnerpe: if you installed grub to sdb, then you just need to set in bios to boot from that hdd first18:24
otpicnerpealpre, OK.  So if I install GRUB on the MBR of sdb, I imagine I would need to configure the BIOS?18:24
otpicnerpeWhen I look at the software repository for Grub, the only result I see is this Legacy version... that doesn't seem like what I want18:25

capribexnobody with any insight re lost encryption?18:34
servercbehelp please.18:35
otpicnerpealpre, I mounted /dev/sdb1 and I see grub is already installed there in /boot.  So I believe I just need to tell the BIOS to boot from that disk.  However, looking at cfdisk for /dev/sdb, I do not see the BOOT flag for /dev/sdb1 where root (and thus /boot) is mounted to.  Does this mean I would need to give this partition the boot flag?18:36
guntbertcapribex: normally you are not asked for the encryption passphrase every time, it is by itself encrypted with your password and therefore used "automatically" when you log in18:36
alpreservercbe: it could be impossible, the internal card shuts off if you use another18:36
servercbemmmm....but it works with windows pretty well... so.. this is why I am trying to do the same on ubuntu18:37
servercbeI dont understand why I could be impossible18:37
servercbecould you explain me please...18:37
alpreotpicnerpe: I am not sure about the boot flag, I'd follow the instructions first on ubuntu.help, section 2.2.2 and if it still won't boot change the flag too. Don't forget the bios boot order.18:38
capribex<guntbert>: thanks! finally some insight :-)  with the previous versions of ubuntu it asked me every time I booted. note that my log-in password and my encrypted home folder passphrase are different. are you sure it is still, somehow, encrypted and safe?18:38
alpreservercbe: if it works on windows, then I was wrong18:38
servercbeso... any suggestion...18:39
guntbertcapribex: how did you creat that homedir encryption?18:39
capribex<guntbert>: about a year ago when installed ubuntu.... a few days ago i run the upgrade to 12.04. worked perfectly and first few boots asked for my passphrase. but then stopped. now when i boot as USER it just asks for the boot password but not for the encrypted directory passphrase. but still gives me access to it....18:41
guntbertcapribex: please look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EncryptedHome, scroll down to "Encrypted Home" - does that apply to your situation?18:42

auronandacefrancesco_: why not?19:23
dr_willisfrancesco_:  its not that heavy.   unity runs well on my low end netbook19:23
capribexguntbert: it means that in order to access the encrypted files, "all" it takes is the admin password and the system ignores the passphrase protecting the encrypted data... isn't it unsafe and defeating the purpose?19:24
francesco_Perhaps it is not Gnome that is heavy. It is my pc that is slow.19:24

capribexguntbert: that is, with the previous version of ubuntu, even after log in i would still need to give the system a different passphrase to make the encrypted files available....  looked safer, no?19:25
francesco_I should not criticize Ghome perhaps, but if what you tell me is true, and Gnome is "heavier" than LXDE, and with LXDE I can get the same result, I don't understand why they don't use LXDE.19:26
guntbertcapribex: it doesn't ignore anything, the decryption is done when you log in - people usually choose a secure password for their account (and you need the password of that account)19:26
Eaglemanhttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/Roundcube Is it me or is it way obselete?19:26
dr_willisfrancesco_:  lxde does not have the same feature set19:26
GunArmdr_willis: that was my guess too, (I'm in GMT -6) but I just manaully reset the timezone and no dice,  and actually these are the lampp files copied from another server where i originally started having the problem (out of the blue) so maybe the php files got jacked up some how19:27
dr_willisEagleman:  cube and unity does not work well. so id say its been  an outdated guide for some time19:27
capribexguntbert: so i was worried for nothing :-)   guntbert, thank you so much. your help was (is) much appreciated.19:27
ubottuUnity is the default UI since Ubuntu 11.04.  Unity is a shell for GNOME. see http://unity.ubuntu.com. For a GNOME 2-like experience, see !notunity19:27
EaglemanI am running CLI only19:27
guntbertcapribex: You're welcome :)19:28
dr_willisyou are talking about the compiz cube?19:28
dr_willisit has a 'round/sphere' option ;)19:28
francesco_dr_willis, pertinent question: could you explain me again how I install the lxde environment, where I have Ubuntu pre-installed already?19:28
Eaglemandr_willis isnt there a web interface?19:29
auronandacefrancesco_: sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop19:29
dr_willisfrancesco_:  on the lightdm login screen you select it via the gear icon19:29
dr_willisEagleman:  a web interface to compiz?19:29
Eaglemanfor roundcube19:29
dr_willisi think we are talking about 2 totally different round cubes...19:30
EaglemanWell there is so i aam a bit confused with you saaying that it isnt compatible with unity19:30
Eaglemanwhile i am on a server :P19:30
francesco_auronandace, do I need to reset something after I install it, or do I just reboot my PC?19:30
=== mimor is now known as mimor_
OerHeksEagleman, good to mention you are on a server, so why do you need roundcube anyway ?19:31
auronandacefrancesco_: log out then choose lxde at the login screen19:31
EaglemanTo look at my e-mail online19:31
francesco_auronandace, after I install lxde do I have multiple environment to choose when starting up my pc?19:32
auronandacefrancesco_: at the login screen19:33
Pazziehi all, i have a question, (i am building a ubuntu server, on vmware esx, i am replacing my windows media server for a ubuntu media server) bascily what i want to know is, since i have 4 different disks (1 os, 4 data disks) would you recommend lvm or no lvm, Since i am reading alot of different information about it.19:33
EaglemanWhich mediaa center will you use?19:33
wNPazzie: lvm is great if your'e going to manipulating your storage19:33
francesco_auronandace, what if I want to use lxde permanently, and I don't want Ubuntu to ask me all the time?19:33
Pazzieps3 media server Eagleman19:34
=== scottas is now known as zz_scottas
wNPazzie: for exmaple, if you plan on adding more disks to this setup in the future, lvm will allow you to extend the existing file-system over the new disk, increasing the total available space for that 1 volume19:34
PazziewN: what do you mean? with manipulating19:34
wNsee previous example19:34
auronandacefrancesco_: it doesn't ask all the time, it uses your previous selection as a default19:34
Pazzieyes but, i use one disk for one partion19:35
wamichohow do you change the color of the fonts on unity top panel ?19:35
Chris___just installed 12.10 x64; how can I switch my desktop manager to gnome? I don't like this default one.19:35
wamichoHey  i am new to unity how do you change the color of the fonts on unity top panel ?19:35
Pazzielet me correct that, if i want to extend my disk, i simply resize the disk in vmware (make it bigger) insteat of adding a new disk19:36
dr_willisPazzie:  i dont use lvm for my media server. i just keep my vids sorted onto similer related disks and share them all19:36
sliddjurAre there any quick button command to switch language with two installed keyboard layouts?19:36
francesco_auronandace, is it dangerous?19:36
dr_willisvmware has tools to enlarge vmware disk im ages19:36
auronandacefrancesco_: not in the least19:36
wNPazzie: in my media server, I have 3 disks. 2x1TB and 1x3TB. I use LVM to make 1x5TB volume19:36
Pazziedr_willis: on my windows media server i have now 4 disks that i share in my media server and i want to do the same configuration om my ubuntu machine19:37

francesco_auronandace, thank you very much for your advice and for your patience.19:37
dr_willisPazzie:  i dont see how vmware figues into this..19:37
Pazzieand i dont need that, since i have all my data organized allready19:37
auronandacefrancesco_: no worries :)19:37
wNPazzie: if you're not going to be manipulating the storage then you dont need lvm19:38
Pazziedr_willis: i have a vmware esx server had home with 16GB of RAM so i have everything virtual at home19:38
dr_willisi keèp mine organized with a simple directory structure and let xbmc/boxee/plex share them all19:38
wNi didnt' think i'd fill 2TB as fast as i did. im glad i used lvm so i could just throw 3tb at it and extend the volume.19:38
Troy^is lvm done during formating of the drive?19:39
Pazziedr_willis: i like ps3 media server more, gives my more settings and love the addons19:39
wNTroy^: yes19:39
GunClivethe package nvidia-current in 12.04 is defect. i read i should add a ppa, which i did. but which package shall i install now? is it still the same name or something from there? https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat/+archive/x-updates btw i got nvidia gtx 550 ti. thanks19:39
wNTroy^: it's a layer inbetween the disk and the file-system19:39
gordonjcpPazzie: I use minidlna, which is a bit clunky but works fairly well19:40
dr_willisi just use boxee/plex/xbmc or some of the other dlna/upnp servers like minidlna19:40

Pazziena since i stream everything, i like to be able to add settings like dts, quality settings, speaker setup, can tweak the proccesor usage19:41
Pazzieand because i also have a ps3, so the same matches more :P19:42
Troy^i absolutely hate the ps3 for streaming19:42
PazzieTroy^: i love it19:42
dr_willislooked at getting a ps3.. never did19:43
Troy^specially when i like to stream 1080k DTS MKVs over 802.11n19:43
Pazziei can stream everything with the best quality and the ps3 have dts-hd support and 3d support same as my reciever and tv19:43
Pazzieand the ps3 is the only console who support those things19:44
Troy^i had problems with cinavia and other encoding bullcrap. with my HTPC and my ubuntu server it's perfect.19:45

ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!19:48
Pazziei have another question, what size do you recommend for the OS disk? 10GB?19:49
Pazziemore or less?19:49
Troy^10gb is pretty small is your /home/ going to be on there as well?19:49
OerHekshal, a quick scan shows no problems with thegeekstuff url. so firefox has a problem then.19:50

halOerHeks: did you open it in firefox?19:50
Pazziei am a windows server guy normaly19:50

OerHekshal, no, i have no firefox.19:50

SillyTalker_dr_willis: any ideas?19:59
Troy^Pazzie_: you should be fine but honestly a server is best headless not gui20:00
iNTEl_is there someone could help me ?20:00
guntbert!password | iNTEl_20:00
ubottuiNTEl_: Forgot your password? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword What's the root password? See !sudo. Don't see *** in password prompts? That's normal. Sudo doesn't ask for your password? It remembers you for several minutes. Please use strong passwords, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/StrongPasswords20:00
shwaiilcompdoc: thanks :) So if I install the latest Ubuntu, it should work without some extra commands etc ?!20:00
MonkeyDustiNTEl_  the password was 1d10t20:00
dr_willisSillyTalker_:  not really with your frakenstine android-ubuntu setup. you hsould of just installed lubuntu into your vm fro m the start perhaps.20:00
iNTEl_ty monkeydust20:00
Pazzie_thats why i want to do the most through the cli, but i dont know if some things are better to do with the desktop20:01
iNTEl_that show ur great cooperate20:01
EaglemanPazzie_ a GUI has way to much limitations and eats space, if you want to run it as a server run it as a server20:01
SillyTalker_dr_willis: the only thing i need to do now is startlubuntu20:01
SillyTalker_dr_willis: but it complains there's no display when i do this over ssh of course20:01
dr_willisSillyTalker_:  i would guess the lubuntu session is not there.20:01
Pazzie_point taken Eagleman20:01
SillyTalker_dr_willis: but lubuntu-desktop is installed20:01
dr_willisSillyTalker_:  export your display variable20:01
Eaglemanyou will learn it20:01
Eaglemani did and i am still learning it20:02
dr_willisexport DISPlAY=localhost:020:02
Troy^Pazzie_: things aren't setup via desktop really for most of the things you're going to be setting up on a server. text editor and cli and it is easiest done through ssh where you have a full desktop20:02
SillyTalker_dr_willis: how please?20:02
SillyTalker_dr_willis: ok thanks again :)20:02
Eaglemanlinux is made for the CLI20:02
compdocshwaiil, thats hard to say. Sometimes things have to be set up, sometimes not. Ive never done it with your system20:02
shwaiilcompdoc: thanks :)20:02
Pazzie_yes i and its better that way, then your realy learn what your are changing and not just click on something with your mouse ;)20:02
SillyTalker_dr_willis: cannot open display20:03
compdocshwaiil, buy another hard drive, and test with that20:03
compdocif you want to save windows20:03
shwaiilcompdoc: I wont use windows, I'm just a lil bit worried, because it's so expensive.... :)20:03
Troy^Pazzie_: most things aren't really going to let you click on things anythings.. like i said most everything in linux is configure/installed and run via cli specially for a server20:03
Troy^Pazzie_: specially things that are usually put on a server20:04
dr_willisSillyTalker_:  no idea then.  id reinstall ubuntu-desktop and see if you can get to a lightdm login screen. or just install lubuntu from the start20:04
SillyTalker_dr_willis: i can't just install anything but thanks20:04
Pazzie_yes and what do you guys recommend for a management server, webmin or ebox (has a new name now)20:04
Pazzie_or maybe something else20:04
Troy^SillyTalker_: why can't you install anything?20:04
guntbertPazzie_: just do it from the command line20:05
guntbert!webmin | Pazzie_20:05
ubottuPazzie_: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.20:05
dr_willisSillyTalker_:   which is why i mentioned your setup  mostly likely is some frankenstein  ubuntu variant. ;)20:05
Pazzie_guntbert: do you also know ebox?20:05
SillyTalker_dr_willis: no but i dunno why the hell they removed the login screen, maybe because VNC wouldnt work with it or something like that20:06
dr_willisSillyTalker_:  ive seen lubuntu on android vm things. that use  lubuntu from the beginning20:06
SillyTalker_thats the only nonstandrd thing really20:06
SillyTalker_dr_willis: well i didn't find anything20:06

NisstyreFor some reason libjpeg62 is not installed as a dependency for racket...yet it requires it to run20:06

Nisstyreeltigre: there is _nothing_ related to your disc drive in there?20:55
Nisstyreeltigre: I find that hard to believe20:55

Jordan_Uohzie: Truecrypt has a non-Free (and pretty poor) license, and is a pain to install in a *reliable and secure* dual boot fashion. You can use manual partitioning in Ubuntu's installer and it will give you the option to install grub to the PBR of your ext4 partition, but this is unreliable and insecure (with any bootloader). You can also install grub to the MBR and reliably load Truecrypt from grub, but I unfortunately don20:58
Jordan_Uohzie: ... don't have time to explain how to do that at the moment.20:58
OerHekseltigre, if you installed ubuntu with it, it should be oke. what disc did you insert ? try ubuntu iso20:58
