oren_Hey guys big problem here (hope you don't mind a lot of text) : I had dual booted Ubuntu and Linux before but my Windows partition got that new Java exploit trojan thing and it got completely trashed so I thought I'd try and reinstall windows, tried that but it didn't work at all (kept resetting itself as soon as it loaded windows) so I thought "bugger it, I'll just install Ubuntu as the only OS", so I got my usb key, loaded up00:24
oren_ubuntu and reinstalled it over my old Ubuntu (which I could no longer get into because the windows installation ruined the grub thing) and it installed on my 350gb drive or whatever it was and all was fine for a while until I reset my computer and nothing loaded at all, until I booted from the same USB key that I had to install ubuntu. Now I can only load my ubuntu via that usb key (but! you might think that I installed it on the00:24
oren_USB, but I obviously didn't because I remember reinstalling Ubuntu over my old existant ubuntu that I just could no longer get into because grub was dead and even when I take the key out, it's absolutely fine). What is going wrong here? Any help would be greatly appreciated00:24

drupinok wilee-nilee so i dont keep a seperate /boot partion .. what is good swap size00:54
wilee-nileedrupin, YOu want to do a manual something other install make sure grub is pointed at the usb like sdb etc whatever it is no partitions for grub.00:54
unless__Dr_willis, good question.00:54
Dr_willisdrupin,  if using suspend/sleep = about the size of ram + a littlebit  is common.00:54
wilee-nileedrupin, The swap normally is equal to the ram if you want to hibernate, what is your ram and do you need a hibernate?00:55
drupindr_jesus_: wilee-nilee: hibernate ya means keep idle00:56
drupinohh that the reason current install is freezing now... swap is now 1GB and ram is 2.5GB00:57
wilee-nileesuspend does not y=use the swap I believe only hibernate, which I think now has to be turned on.00:57
Dr_willisI got less then 10 sec boot times. :) i dont use any of them.00:57
drupinmy current install crashes if too much apps loaded00:58
wilee-nileeDr_willis, you left out the nah nah nah nah nah00:58
Dr_willisswap=ram is a safe bet. if you have 'just' 2.5 gb of ram.. you may want  3gb of swap00:58
Dr_willisIts amuseing when the POST testing takes longer then the OS booting00:58
drupinwill then 5 GB good for the rest of OS00:59
Dr_willis5gb for / ? thats way tiny.00:59
Dr_willisperhaps doable.. but i wouldent think you would get much work done00:59

VinnyAtaideI've installed windows first, so I've used the windows built-in partition manager to shrink 100gb from my HD01:07

bin_bashHi there. I have a Crapbook Pro 8,1 and it says on the website that the Thunderbolt port "won't work"01:45
bin_bashbut that's not true01:45
Dr_willis'on the website'  meaning......01:45
Dr_willisif its a wiki page. you can correct/change things.. it maybe for older releases01:46
Dr_willistheres also a ubuntu docs channel i belive01:46
bin_bashIt's not a wiki page01:46
bin_bashBut the information is incorrect no matter what version you're using.01:46
usr13bin_bash: It says, "You can contribute to this wiki, see Wiki Guide for details"01:47
bin_bashWell I'm not going to explain how it works01:48
bin_bashI just wanted to tell you it was wrong01:48
bin_bashI don't even use Ewbuntu01:48
usr13bin_bash: What DO you use?01:48
Dr_willisetch-a-sketch? ;)01:48
usr13Ok, I'm lost....01:48
bin_bashThat was quick.01:49
wilee-nileemaybe you could change the wiki to say crapbook01:49
bin_bashNot everyone thinks Apple is shit01:49
usr13wilee-nilee: excellent01:49
bin_bashIt might be offensive to some of the hipsters in here.01:49
TorpedoSkyline<3 Apple01:50
wilee-nileeno just your rhetoric is all01:50
bin_bashTorpedoSkyline, your opinion is bad and you should feel bad.01:50
usr13bin_bash: certainly not me.  (I was being facetious.)01:51
* TorpedoSkyline shanks bin_bash with a paper towel holder.01:51
bin_bashusr13, you asked me what I was using. I said "Arch".01:51
bin_bashWhat is so confusing about that01:51
TorpedoSkylineArch is like so 1979.01:52
usr13bin_bash: This is the #ubuntu channel.01:52
bin_bashTorpedoSkyline, what01:52
bin_bashusr13, I came in here to correct your data.01:52
TorpedoSkylineno one in here wants to deal with an OS you have to piece together to run.01:52
usr13bin_bash: Usually, people here are discussing ubuntu systems.01:52
zester1Isn't this a support channel? Shouldn't we I don't know...... Talking about support related stuff and not apple bs?01:52
usr13bin_bash: It is not my data.01:52
TorpedoSkylinezester1 we should be.01:52
TorpedoSkylineTake this to #ubuntu-offtopic.01:52
ratcheerTorpedoSkyline: +101:53
bin_bashzester1, it /is/ a support issue because someoe might come in quoting that page and you all will cling to it like some kind of bible01:53
moxieor #ubuntu-losers01:53
bin_bashand it's blatantly incorrect.01:53
bin_bashI use the thunderbolt port to output to my LCD TV01:53
jribbin_bash: and you're on natty?01:54
TorpedoSkylinebin_bash then change it and contribute to society.. stop complaining. xD01:54
TorpedoSkylinejrib, no Arch.01:54
jribTorpedoSkyline: ...01:54
usr13jrib: He is not a Ubuntu user.01:54
bin_bashjrib, it doesn't matter what I'm using, because it's a kernel issue and it was updated with the 3.4 kernel01:54
jribbin_bash: verify it works on the *natty* version of ubuntu (which doesn't have 3.4 iirc), then feel free to fix the page.  Not sure what else you expect here.  This channel is for ubuntu support.01:55
bin_bashjrib, there's literally no reason that apt-get update shouldn't update the kernel01:55
bin_bashand if it doesn't01:55
CelsoHi there! Does sommeone has a bug on the ubuntu 12.04.1 on the left bar that isn't showing the app name when we put the mouse on top of the icon?01:55

TorpedoSkylinebin_bash. Thank you for the information. Your job of notifying the Ubuntu community is complete.01:56
bkc_bin_bash: stop bitching... you're giving Arch-users a bad reputation! -.-01:56

CelsoDoes sommeone has a bug on ubuntu 12.04.1 on the left bar that isn't showing the app name when we put the mouse on top of the icon?01:57
Dr_willisCelso,  just a few apps or all apps?01:57
Celsoalmost all but its random01:58
zester1Celso: What graphics card and driver are you using? Intel, Ati, Nvidia. OSS or Binary Blob?01:58
delinquentmecp is the copy/paste command ja???01:58
Dr_willisCelso,  ive not heard anyone else mention it.  was wondering if it was just Java apps. :)01:58
Dr_willisdelinquentme,  cp copies..01:58
Dr_willisdelinquentme,  man cp    for details of it.01:59
Celsowith the intel 3000HD card and intel i3 processor01:59
Dr_willispaste - is more of a 'move/rename' operation.01:59
zester1Do they flicker?01:59
Celsohum...  weird....01:59
Celsoif i put the mouse, sometimes it shows, sometimes not....02:00
Celsobut with the 2D version i am not having it02:00
Celsoanny problem02:00
zester1Try upgrading your ubuntu, sounds like a bug with compositing.02:01
Celsoi am using ubuntu 12.04.1 full updated02:01
wilee-nileeCelso, You might try resetting the unity desktop, have you tweaked it in any way?02:02
Dr_willistest with a newly made user.02:02
Celsonop. just installed the pc, and installed the updates and the language. nothing more.02:02
Celsomaybe something related to a bug on language pack?02:03
zester1No that wouldnt be it.02:04
zester1Its more than likely a bug in unity's compiz. I have no idea why they choose that as a foundation for unity it has always been extreamly buggy.02:05
Celsoshowld i report it?02:07
zester1Yes I would02:07
VinnyAtaidehello, it's me again, sorry for bothering you guys for so long02:07
Celsook. i will report it.02:07
Celsothanks for the help02:08
zester1Sorry we could be more help ;)02:08
VinnyAtaideI have a screenshot from my windows partition manager showing all my partitions. I hope this way the situation could be better for me. I don't wanna delete my windows files02:08
zester1could = couldn't02:08
Celsono problem02:08
jagginessVinnyAtaide, well backup your stuff.. cuse the xubuntu installer is not something i ever tried (you should try #xubuntu if you're using xubuntu)02:09
Celsoi was searching for this bug but didn't find anything so, i was wondering if anyone here would hear something about it02:09
wilee-nileeVinnyAtaide, the windows partitioner will leave out actual partitions, you want to post a gparted view here.02:09
Celsoor experienced the same bug02:09
zester1I have experanced it before.02:09
VinnyAtaideI'm not using Xubuntu, xubuntu was before I formatted with windows02:09
jagginessVinnyAtaide, http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php02:09
usr13jagginess: It is not different from the Ubuntu installer.02:09
zester1A few times I just switched to using a differant window manager.02:10
jagginessusr13, maybe, but I never used it.02:10
VinnyAtaideyeah, ubuntu kubuntu and xubuntu share the same installer02:10
Celsoand how you got it fixed?02:10
VinnyAtaidecan you see the link that I've posted?02:11
zester1Ummm I bought a Nvidia card and used the binary drivers from nvidia or you could try a differant wndow manager like xfwin02:11
GycklarnWhen I use apt-get upgrade, are my nvidia drivers updated as well? I never thought about it until now.02:12
zester1 VinnyAtaide: How do you propose your going to backup 400+GB of data?02:12
blackshirtgycklarn, no,you should reinstall nvidia driver again02:13
VinnyAtaideI would, but it's funky, thanks guys I'll learn by myself and if I find the answer I'll post here =)02:13
zester1No one here installed when you upgrade if there is an avalable update its installed.02:13
allan_Hi, I has installed Xubuntu on my PC but I Like Ubuntu Desktop02:14
zester1blackshirt: What makes you think you have to re-install NV drivers when you update. I02:14
usr13allan_: install ubuntu-desktop02:15
allan_How I can Install the Ubuntu Desktop?02:15
zester1Download normal ubuntu would be the easyest way.02:15

jagginessallan_, you mean um unity?02:15
allan_Ubuntu Desktop or GNome, What is the best?02:15
jagginessallan_, again here with ya man.. I have no idea if unity is on xubuntu!!!!!02:15
VinnyAtaidexubuntu have xfce02:16

allan_yes Xubuntu have Xfce,but I like Ubuntu Desktop02:16
allan_My PC no support PAE02:16
zester1allan: Try both and you decided it comes down to preferance there is no one is better than the other.02:16
wilee-nileeallan_, Here is a lionk for removing xubuntu and installing unity.  http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/pureubuntu02:16

wilee-nileeallan_, check the release is the same if you use it.02:17
allan_is ugly02:17

VinnyAtaideallan_ xfce is fast and clean, unity is slow"er" and prettier, and have some accesibility advantage02:17

delinquentmeis there a better way to have done a cp operation ... something perhaps a bit more transparent as to what happening?02:18
delinquentmeALSO .. is a CP operation a heavy thing in an ubuntu OS?02:18
chriswardtrism, worked, thanks *gives cookie*02:19
trismchrisward: yum02:19
zester1 You guys want to see my Desktop Environment?  Its my own custom creation everything written from scratch by me :)02:19
zester1From the window manager on down.02:19
allan_What is the best for me?: Unity or Gnome Desktops?02:19
VinnyAtaidethe best way is just reinstall ubuntu, if you install ubuntu on xubuntu you're gonna have a bad time with the many options of softwares that do the same thing (my opinion =p)02:20

Nullzero-laptop_No broadcom coming up which is what this latptop uses from all the other pavillion dv600002:59
Nullzero-laptop_posts i've been seeing02:59
jameswwhat is overhead of an encrypted home folder? i see my home folder taking up as much space as th e encrypted version, is it as simple as that, the price is that you have to have an encrypted copy of everything? or am i misreading?02:59
Nullzero-laptop_I found one post from someone who had the same issue but it was never solved.03:00

lotuspsychjeNullzero-laptop_:whats the default Os on that laptop?03:04
wilee-nileeNullzero-laptop_, Here is a 12.04 link. http://askubuntu.com/questions/125529/wireless-doesnt-work-on-a-broadcom-bcm431203:05
lotuspsychjeNullzero-laptop_:did you install broadcom drivers correclty?03:05
Nullzero-laptop_There are no drivers installed at all, I don't know which ones to use because it doesn't show up in lspci03:06
lotuspsychjeNullzero-laptop_:try the additional drivers section, or software centre or synaptics03:07
Nullzero-laptop_All I know is that this laptop normally uses a broadcom wireless card03:07
mirajmust not count as pci, maybe it counts as pcmcia or cardbus?03:07
Nullzero-laptop_any way I can find out?03:07
Nullzero-laptop_command not found, not part of the standard install?03:08
mirajI thought it was a standard package03:08
Nullzero-laptop_yeah it says its installed03:09
Nullzero-laptop_found it lspcmcia03:12
Nullzero-laptop_no output03:12
mirajsorry, it was just an idea03:12
bekorhi using ubuntu 12.04 gnome classic. some how compiz not fully functional somehow, windows animations  not working anymore03:13
Nullzero-laptop_so that's basically where I am at.  If i had anything in lspci i'm pretty sure I would have had this working, but since its not in there at all I'm out of ideas03:14
bkc_Nullzero-laptop_: tried lsusb?03:15
mirajhas anyne else with that model got it working with any distro of linux?03:15
Nullzero-laptop_bkc hub and camera03:15
Nullzero-laptop_yes, from what i'm reading in the forums everyone else has a broadcom wireless adapter03:16
Nullzero-laptop_and then they just have to install the correct drivers03:16
xkillndis wrapper?03:16
mirajyou said the wireless had a physical switch?03:17
Nullzero-laptop_Only one thread I saw had someone without anythign in his lspci output and there was no solution on that one03:17
Nullzero-laptop_first thing I checked was to make sure it was in the on position03:17
mirajwhat happens if you jiggle the switch a little?03:17
xkillis the card PnP compliant? is this a super old card? is the cardbus? is the laptop ancient?03:18
Fernestnot a question about ubuntu, but does one know, why I can't send messages to channels like #python and #c++ ?03:18

peepsalothow do i configure the actions that ubuntu takes when my phone is plugged in over USB03:19
bkc_peepsalot: udev-rules?03:19
Nullzero-laptop_laptop isn't ancient, like I said there are a lot of threads with people having driver issues on this laptop but they just needed to correct their drivers, all of them had the card show up in the lspci and it was a broadcom03:19
Nullzero-laptop_I've cycled the physical switch a few times to see if that was the issue03:20
mirajis there any chance the power-saving controls has it turned off?03:21
drupini am now on the persistence live system03:21
peepsalotbkc_, i don't see anything related in /etc/udev/rules.d03:21
drupini can keep using this?03:21
Nullzero-laptop_hmm let me check miraj03:21
Nullzero-laptop_i would have thought even if that were the case it would still see it on the bus03:22
bkc_peepsalot: nothing there because you havn't put anything there... defaults and so on...03:22
peepsalotbkc_, rhythmbox automatically opens up, i don't want it to03:22
peepsalotalso nautilus, i don't want anything to open automatically03:22
peepsaloti actually uninstalled rhytmbox thinking that would stop it.  now vlc opens up03:23
bkc_peepsalot: that has nothing to do with udev... it's default applications03:23

bitbarronMy Mozilla Thunderbird has started to become unresponsive when I start it up in Ubuntu.  How can I troubleshoot this problem?03:23
mirajbitbarron : unresponsive in what way(s)?03:24
Nullzero-laptop_I don't see anythign in the power settings that would point to the wireless03:25
bitbarronmiraj, When I open it, it immediately "hangs", and when I try to quit by clicking the "x", it says it is not responding and asks if I desire to "force quit"03:25
xkilldrupin: you can not re-use disk space. deleting files just gets them out of your face but you dont regain the space03:26
zester1OMG have you seen the new Redmond Linux Distro!!!!!!!03:26
wilee-nileebitbarron, try opening it with the terminal running thunderbird and look for errors03:26
mirajNullzero-laptop_ : don't know, it's a mystery. If you have any wifi pc-cards, you could use one of them03:26
bitbarronmiraj, by "hangs", I mean I cannot navigate around the user interface of the program such as move from one email to another, or even open the menus03:27
xkillit works till you run out of disk space03:27
DracoDanLRPChow do I set the default runlevel with upstart?03:27

bkc_Nautilus__: Alt+.03:27
Nullzero-laptop_@miraj ok, thanks for the help, I'll have to see if I cna get a usb or pcmcia card03:28
bitbarronwilee-nilee, No errors seem to be coming up in terminal.  Also, the screen dims????03:29
xkillit is very simple to over come the 4GB filesystem limit. use a linux partitioner to partition the drive into a 2GB FAT16 partition and a second ext2 partition as large as you like labeled "casper"  (or "live-rw" if it is debian)03:29
Nautilus__bkc_: hm, doesnt seem to do it, and I hit refresh after03:29
Nautilus__bkc_: Is it in the GUI anywhere?03:29
mirajbitbarron : something must have got corrupted, maybe a virus. mozilla products are bad for that.03:29
bkc_Nautilus__: 2sec...03:29
wilee-nileebitbarron, same look as well? Not sure here really if it was me I would purge it and reinstall, but I keep nothing in my thunderbird.03:30
danmichelwow, congrats to the folks at Ubuntu. I havent touched Linux in like 5 years. This is amazing03:30
mirajbitbarron : sylpheed is a pretty good email program ...03:30
danmichelback in the wobbly windows days03:30
bkc_Nautilus__: Alt+. works just fine for me... K3b 2.0.2... you have to select the filemanager-part thou03:31
bitbarronmiraj, Really?  Well, what you say is what it seems likely.  I didn't know viruses took hold on mozilla distros running on linux03:31
wilee-nileemiraj, mozilla products are bad for what?03:31
drupinxkill: plz i need article on it03:31
bkc_wilee-nilee: memory-leaks... it has more holes than a swiss cheese ...03:31
mirajmozilla products can be corrupted with specially crafted xml files03:32
bitbarronwilee-nilee, By purge, you simply mean uninstall and reinstall, correct?03:32
Nautilus__bkc_: huh I just installed this and it's 1.91.003:32
wilee-nileebitbarron, sudo apt-get purge thunderbird   then reinstall03:33
bkc_Nautilus__: note, that I said <alt>+<dot> as in the key between / and , :)03:33
bkc_Nautilus__: I'm also assuming you're talking about K3b, the cd/dvd-burner app in KDE :)03:33
wilee-nileememory leaks possibly a xml crafted unlikely03:33
Nautilus__bkc_: I missed the dot!03:34
bitbarronwilee-nilee, Since I am running Thunderbird as IMAP, my emails should all be uneffected, correct?03:34

bitbarronwilee-nilee, I think that is the case.  It's gmail.03:35
wilee-nileebitbarron, I have university address used this way myself.03:35
bkc_Nautilus__: poor default-value actually :)03:35
Nautilus__bkc_: nah, if it's off I won't know if I missed something03:36
bkc_Nautilus__: also... that value is remembered for that directory by the KDE framework... just so you know ;)03:37
mirajit could be gmail's fault, bad network packets causing tbird to lockup03:37

blackshirti thinks, nvidia user gets more trouble compared to intel or ati one03:40
bkc_Nautilus__: I'm guesing not... that will keep it as a link...03:40
morganbkc_, the recommended one03:40
bkc_morgan: then turn of a few (or many) desktop effects...03:40
morganbkc_, ok I'll try that. where/how do I do that please?03:40
bkc_blackshirt: because Ubuntu havn't up'ed the driver-version yet to >302 -.-03:41
blackshirtmorgan, maybe related to compiz effect03:41
Nautilus__bkc_: Options: "Follow link now" then? Actually I just have 2 choices, then rest of the 4 add "Always" to the action03:41
blackshirtbkc_ you are right03:41
morganI'd like to turn off all effects etc03:41
bkc_morgan: I'm guessing you're using unity? then I have no idea :/03:41
bkc_Nautilus__: yes, that one :)03:42
blackshirtmorgan, maybe better and test them step by step03:42
bkc_I'd turn of compiz entirely then, if you're not gonna use it anyway :)03:42
PedrolitoI'm trying to enable the html 5 mode in youtube, but youtube claims that the firefox 15 in ubuntu doesn't have WebM.  Is that correct?03:42

PedrolitoNautilus__, how did you fix it?03:47
morganis unity like gnome? or they are different?03:47
wilee-nileebkc_, unity is a plugin in compiz.03:47
Nautilus__Pedrolito: I haven't.  And it's not just firefox03:47
blackshirtmorgan, they are different thing03:47

morganmiraj, which would you say is the 'lightest'03:50
bkc_Nautilus__: guess why youtube are moving towards html5 & webm :)03:50
bkc_xangua: hence the censuring...03:50
mirajmorgan, the absolute lightest windows manager would be twm, but you probably wouldn't want to use it03:51
Nautilus__bkc_: thanks, I've been wondering about that for months03:51
bkc_xangua: or were you refering to Arch ;)03:51
Nautilus__Pedrolito: we may be out of luck until YT does their thing03:51
mirajmorgan, somewhere in the middle are compromise solutions, like xfce or afterstep03:52
morganoh I think I tried xfce in xubuntu and hated it, it was super choppy and laggy for me03:52
Pedrolitobkc_, you're right, I found a video which allows to use the html5 player, and it's working fine03:52
mirajmorgan, don't know what xfce would be choppy and laggy, ubless you've got hw problems. it's got no eye candy extras really03:53
bkc_morgan: how can xfce be laggy and unity not? ... that is physically impossible...03:53
xkillxfce on ubuntu w/ USB flash 4 hard drive = smooth and nice  (weird thing though, other laptop that is 10 years older, runs faster. faster USB flashdrive maybe?)03:53
Nautilus__is there a way to tell which ones work, without embedding them one by one? Some field on the YT page for the video?03:53
nexusguy59you around shaladore?03:54
morganI dono but video and stuff etc was super choppy03:54
bkc_Nautilus__: not to my knowledge no... havn't looked into it :)03:54
jameswwhat is overhead of an encrypted home folder? i see my home folder taking up as much space as th e encrypted version, is it as simple as that, the price is that you have to have an encrypted copy of everything? or am i misreading?03:54
Pedrolitomorgan, xfce is super smooth for me, it makes my netbook usable, unity was wayyyyyy to slow03:55
bkc_morgan: bad configuration then... or just not installed the correct nvidia-driver :)03:55
Nautilus__Pedrolito: what specific YT video did you fid that does HTML5, and how did you find it?03:55
xkillthe overhead depends on the encryption strength and if it's padded03:55
PedrolitoNautilus__, I search for the 'html5' keyword in youtube, and the first video I tried used the html5 mode03:55
xkillwhat alg?03:56
Nautilus__Pedrolito: ok, heh03:56
morganeverything was default03:56
PedrolitoNautilus__,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzPxo7Y6JyA to be specific03:56
bkc_morgan: then there's your problem... you need to install the nvidia-driver :)03:57
morganthat was definitely installed03:57
xkillthats like bitching about progman or explorer when you where running on standard vga driver03:57
jameswxkill how can i find the alg?03:58
morganI'm not that noob D:03:58
machiolatwhat does it mean if i'm superuser and yet an .sh script won't run, i.e. permission denied03:59
jameswwhatever was default alg xkill03:59
machiolati've tried su, su sudo, sudo03:59
machiolatchanged permissions and everything and still get permission denied03:59
xkillthen it would be very small international 56bit non padded encryption03:59
WeThePeoplemachiolat, try sudo i03:59
WeThePeoplesudo -i03:59
Nautilus__Pedrolito: Interesting, I'm on that video's YT page and it's embedded via flash.  I wonder if they show Flash by default if the browser supports both? (I'm in FF).   bkc_: any thoughts there?04:00
xkillidk what ubuntu uses by default but i assume its about as easy to crack as wep04:00
machiolatwith sudo -i it says no such file or directory now? wtf...04:00
machiolatafter telling me permissoin denied for a hundred other things04:01
WeThePeoplemachiolat, reset terminal and type sudo -i04:01
bkc_Nautilus__: If you're in the beta-program for html5 then no, it should default to html5/webm and revert to flash if and only if the video isn't converted to webm yet...04:02
machiolat-bash: ./Fritzing: No such file or directory04:02
machiolatand yet, there it is04:02

Dr_willisYou are spelling it right? ;)04:03
Dr_williscase matters.04:03
PedrolitoNautilus, maybe you're using an extension that changes your user agent string.  That is my case, and I had to make it send my real user agent to youtube for html5 to work04:04
machiolatyeah i'm using Tab, so it's spelling it for me04:04
Dr_willismachiolat,  try 'file thatfilename'04:04
Dr_willisif its a 32bit binary.. and you are on a 64bit os...04:04
Nautilus__bkc_: 10-4, thanks _again_04:05
Dr_willisor visa-versa04:05
bkc_Pedrolito: has nothing to do with user-agent... it's a javascript-thingy that checks for html5-support04:05
machiolatthis is the 64 bit package, but ok... let me check04:05
machiolatand i've tried with the 32 as well04:05

Pedrolitobkc, I'm just saying that on my firefox, I'm not getting the html 5 if I block my user agent04:05

Dr_willisalso you said it was a 'sh' script. so whats the first few lines.. the #!/bin/whatever  lines04:06
bkc_machiolat: and you do have the #!/bin/bash line at the top... right...04:06
bkc_and not just #!/bash...04:06
WeThePeoplemachiolat, you cd into a dir. >>04:06
Pedrolitoso maybe Nautilus has some kind of interfering extension such as noscript or the like04:06
machiolatcontents of the actual script http://bpaste.net/show/rbNd7vFLP0W5f384ZkVf/04:07

bkc_I just guessing here thou...04:22
sin_taxIs there an easy way to aggregate/concatenate several folders into a single read only samba (or other?) share? For example I might have /media/movies/ on two disks, but I would like to share /media/ as one share that aggregates those two disks /media/ folders together.04:23
bkc_xkill: actually... ubuntu-desktop...04:23
xkillreally? theres a seperate unity package04:23
m4k4r0n3ubuntu-destop its better.04:23
nicekiwi_bkc_: seems a lil ultra complicated..04:23
xkillits linux04:23
m4k4r0n3what you prefered? Ubuntu or Xubuntu??04:23

m4k4r0n3dont have effects. =(04:25
xkillthats not what it's for04:25
bkc_effects... -.-04:25
Janossin_tax, nothing exactly like that comes to mind, but how about you create /shared and create two links under it to each of your media dir and then share the /shared directory with you favorite file sharing protocol04:26
xkillxfce is a lightweight no thrills run on anything windows manager04:26
bkc_sin_tax: just share /media? o.O04:26
m4k4r0n3i think what Unity is a better xfce.04:26
sin_taxJanos, that would sort of work, but I have similar subfolders in many of the drives so I would still have to 'hunt' for the content I want unless I know ahead of time which drive it is on04:26
jessersHello guys04:27
sin_taxbkc_, because I have a /media folder on multiple drives04:27
xkilluntill you try running unity on a pentium I04:27

davidwhat is the best way to install gnome 3 in ubuntu 12.04 without breaking anything?04:28
jessersYet. I am able to connect to wirless networks04:28
xkillthen why are you using xfce if you have a nice comp and what eye candy? thats not what it's for!04:28
bkc_david: sudo apt-get install gnome04:28
bkc_jessers: don't use ifconfig... use ip04:29
bkc_jessers: also, try ip addr show wlan004:29
Janossin_tax, you still have to figure out what you want to share no matter what04:29
davidin this command what does gnome represent. Someone else told me sudo apt-get install gnome-shell so I am a little confuse04:29
WeThePeopleip no work in linux04:29
m4k4r0n3Correct. i go to the install ubuntu-desktop04:29
m4k4r0n3and now, i very happy. hAhaehea04:29
jessersbkc_ ok let me try it04:29
bkc_WeThePeople: it does... ip addr show, ip link etc...04:30
bkc_WeThePeople: wasn't referring to ipconfig... -.-04:30

bkc_ifconfig is depricated and should be killed with fire imho...04:30
xkilldavid; "sudo apt-get install gnome-shell"  will download and install the Gnome window manager (Ubuntu uses the Unity window manager by default)04:31
sin_taxJanos, basically, I have multiple drives (3 now, more later) with a similar /media structure.  So disk 01 might have /media/television/show_a and disk 02 might have /media/television/show_b and I would like to have a 'concatenated / aggregated' /media share that shows both subfolders from disk 01 and 02... Otherwise I have to guess which disk (or sub-share if I do a /allmedia share which has all my disks in it) the content is on...04:31
bkc_MeXTuX: it's -lmysqlpp04:31
bkc_sin_tax: glhf ^^04:31
davidso I want to try gnome 3. which command do I use04:32
xkillpress the Tab key to show your options04:32
bkc_david: is it installed?04:32
m4k4r0n3thanks guy!!04:32
sin_taxThanks bkc_ ^__^;   It seems greyhole is close to what I want but I don't care about redundancy04:32
xkillTab key autocompletes or presents options04:32
davidhow can I check?04:32
davidim on Ubuntu 12.0404:33
bkc_david: sudo apt-get install gnome04:33
bkc_it should either install it, or tell you it's already installed04:33
xkillin that shell while you are typing the command gnome-04:33
jessers_bkc_  I got this04:33
jessers_o command 'ipconfig' found, did you mean:04:33

Janossin_tax, raid0 or raid5 might be more what you need04:33

sin_taxJanos, yeah, that would do it but I have a fear of catastrophic data loss in the case of losing some drives in a RAID array.  And it is difficult to grow the array by adding drives with some RAID solutions.  Thanks for you help though04:35
bkc_anything more than 2 lines... paste it on a pastebin-service -.-04:35
WeThePeoplejessers_, use paste.ubuntu.com04:35

jessers_cool!  thanks bkc_04:36

jessers_iwconfig  output this : lo        no wireless extensions.04:36
Pinkamena_Dhi guys04:36
jessers_I have a network adapter and a wireless network adapter04:37
bkc_jessers_: iwconfig should also say something about eth0 and eth1...04:37
MeXTuXbkc_: thank you04:37
bkc_Pinkamena_D: o/04:37
bkc_MeXTuX: np04:37
jessers_I'm connected wirelessly though   : /04:37
Janossin_tax, all linux raid solutions are easy to grow, and if you are worried about data loss, the more reason to use a raid configuration, just make sure you don't use raid 0 for that04:37
M4k4r0n3Im back using Unity.04:38
sin_taxJanos, is it possible to create an array (using mdadm or whatever) without obliterating the data already on the drives?04:39
Janossin_tax, yes sir04:39
M4k4r0n3whats better language of programation: php or python?04:39
jessers_Does anyone know if there a way for UBUNTU to download and install the drivers for my wireless adapter through terminal?04:39
bkc_M4k4r0n3: not related to ubuntu04:40
Pinkamena_Di know the chances anyone has done this here are rather slim, but anyway, i am trying to install halo (the first one) on ubuntu. I got wineinstalled and followed the online guides fully. I have seen some other people are having the same problem i am, but no one seems sto have found a solution for them04:40
bkc_jessers_: not that I know of04:40
Pinkamena_Dthe problem is that after you start the programs and the intro videos pass, you can hear the background muchs but its just a black screen04:40
Janossin_tax, also, i don't know what software do you use to play your media, but i know that xbmc can create a library to which you can just add file system paths and it will scan them, every now and then for changes, this keeps everything in one place even if you have files all over the file system04:40
Pinkamena_Di am guessing only some people have it because its something with the video driver or video card04:40
bkc_Pinkamena_D: you need to install DX-support through winetricks04:41
Janossin_tax, i'm pretty sure other media players have this functionality04:41
bkc_and select it in winecfg04:41
jessers_It is weird it all started after I partitioned my HDD for a dual-boot with   Ubuntu \ Windows04:41
sin_taxJanos, I use Plex, which does the same, but I have been having some issues with it so was looking for a fall-back plan that just allows me to browse media via a samba share04:41
M4k4r0n3i want to program in python on Ubuntu04:41
M4k4r0n3anyone know any really good IDE?04:41
joejackwifi not connecting. ifconfig shows only inet6 address but no intet addr does that help to debug the problem?04:41
bkc_M4k4r0n3: sudo apt-get install python04:41
M4k4r0n3python 3.2?04:42
glassresistorhave this weird problem with bluetooth headset in 10.04 but can't think of a way to google for it04:42
Pinkamena_Ddo you know where that "dx support" option is located offhand?04:42
bkc_M4k4r0n3: yes04:42
jessers_joejack i f you do ifconfig on terminal do you see a wlan listing?04:42
Janossin_tax, well then you have at least 3 options, raid, fix your current media player or get a new one that :)04:43
bkc_Pinkamena_D: not of the top of my head no, but it's under install programs... give me a sec and I'll have a look04:43
xkillsudo apt-get install bluefish04:43
M4k4r0n3how to respond like you?04:43
joejackyeah wlan0 that is the listing that is not showing a inet addr just an inet6 addr04:43
glassresistorbasically whenever I switch the program using sound saw going from hulu to youtube or just changing pages or changing the sound/movie im watching the A2DP high fedelity sound stars clipping and sounding bad..04:44
joejackjessers_ that comment was for you04:44
sin_taxJanos, thanks again =]04:44
bkc_joejack: the inet6-address is probably the default address...04:44
glassresistor... but if i toggle to hsp then back to a2dp it works great04:44
jessers_Try this joejack go to Terminal & type : dhclient eth004:44
glassresistoranyone have any ideas? i've noticed similar problems with multicast and pulse audio04:45
jessers_It is the same as ipconfig/ renew in Windows OS04:46
jessers_Did it work?04:46
Janossin_tax, just one piece of advice, if you decide to go with raid, try to simulate the procedure on a VM first, wrong step here and you loose you data :P04:46
joejackjessers_ it came back operation not permitted04:46
bkc_Pinkamena_D: winetricks -> Select the default wine-prefix -> Install a Windows DLL or component -> dx<something>04:46
glassresistorso bluetooth audio works but i have to toggle the sound between each track change, any ideas?04:46
jessers_Try it as root04:46
jessers_sudo dhclient eth004:46
Pinkamena_Dthank you very much, i will try it out now04:47
joejackok true haha04:47
=== dark3n is now known as dark3n|off
joejackjessers_ it seems to be just hanging now04:48
glassresistorits it pulseaudio or the bluetooth drivers I should be looking at?04:48
joejackyeah jessers_ that command is just hanging04:49
zed_hi I am using kubuntu 12.04 on this laptop and >I am having problems with the wireless04:49
jessers_So it did not renew your address04:49
zed_there is no network manager app on the taskbar, and I can't find it in the menus04:49
jessers_Hi zed_04:49
zed_hey jessers_04:49
jessers_Welcome to the club!!  LOL04:49
zed_why is this a common problem ?04:50
zed_there is no icon or app anywhere for accessing the net04:50
joejackjessers_ no ifconfig still only shows an inet6 addr for wlan004:50
vkasdoes anybody have an idea about this weird problem -  working in gnome-classic session and had a panel in the right side of the screen which i deleted. now i cannot reach in the area that was covered by the panel. the area is kind of cut-off from the desktop - even on the login screen. screenshot of the whole screen also omits the area04:50
jessers_I don't know man...my netbook was working fine and I connect wirelessly yet my wireless adapter doesn't show up on terminal04:50
Pinkamena_Dtheirs a whole bunch of d3dx9 and d3dx10 ones04:51
jessers_ok hang on joejack04:51
Pinkamena_Dill start with a generic dx9...04:51
jessers_zed_ so if you are already connected to a network all you need is a browser, correct?04:52
jessers_joejack , let's try flushing your DNS cache04:53
jessers_type this on terminal :  /etc/rc.d/init.d/nscd restart04:53
glassresistoris anyone using bluetooth headsets without the problem?04:53
joejackjessers_  it says no such file or directory04:56
joejackjessers_ what now04:58
jessers_I'm searching04:59
jessers_joejack try this :  sudo /etc/init.d/dns-clean start05:01
jessers_So nothing seems to happen but we cleared your DNS cache05:03
jessers_Now try restarting your wireless adapter, porfavor05:03
joejackjessers_ ok did the command and still nothing05:04

nydelanyone here use vimprobable?05:32
ankurwhat's that05:32
nydelankur: it's a vi improved editor-like web browser05:32
ankurnydel, lemme see05:32
IdleOnethank you05:33
ankurnydel, you know shell scripting?05:33
daklanthat bot sure was annoying05:33
nydelankur: sh, bash, lush, a bit of csh, lisp, perl, php05:33
random777Anyone here use a Steelseries sensie mouse?05:33
nydelankur: lisp & bash mostly05:34
zed_Intel Centrino  Advanced-N 620505:34
zed_can't get that to work05:34
ankurnydel, why are you using vimprobable? O.o05:35
nydelzed_: what can't you get to work exactly?05:35
zed_nydel: well I have kubuntu 12.04 installed. and05:35
zed_the network app doesn't give me the option to enable wirelesss05:35
zed_its greyed out05:35
daklandriver not loaded?05:35
zed_hardware drivers shows nothing05:35
nydelankur: i look at a lot of textual websites and am on a minimal kick right now. it's actually a really great browser, vimprobable is. much faster than any other browser i've used.05:36
zed_not sure where to get the drivers from i guess i have to manually install them from the manufacturers website ?05:36
ankurnydel, yeah if you're reading text then it's great.05:36
luckysmackanyone know how I can fix apt-get in 12.04 ? my router crashed when installing java, and now i cant install or recover apt-get. http://bpaste.net/show/6JksJM2aZVpv6dgyN9zT/05:37
nydelzed_: that's really unfortunate, i'm sorry to hear that didn't work automatically. you'll have to install the drivers, are you able to find them?05:37
daklanzed_: should be supported out of box, it seems. what does lspci say about it?05:37
ankurnydel, but then when it comes to multimedia it would suck05:37
bkc_nydel: what's the difference between vimprobable and say luakit? :)05:37
ankurluckysmack, try reopening your terminal05:38
zed_03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6205 (rev 34)05:38
daklanluckysmack: tried "apt-get install -f"?05:38
ankurluckysmack, it usually works for me05:38
nydelankur: i really dislike how multimedia www/http has become. i miss the old days. i wanna meet with my friends on a telnet bbs or shell, not facebook. ideas, not identity.05:38
daklanzed_: so the kernel recognizes it. Try lsmod|grep iwlagn05:38
nydelbkc_: i know vimprobable is built on lua.. i'm not sure how to answer your question in full05:39
zed_daklan: absolutely no output from that command05:39
bkc_nydel: luakit is the same, just that all config-files are written in lua... also all plugins/whatnot :)05:39
daklanzed_: modprobe iwlagn05:39
luckysmackdaklan: yea tried that. did some stiff but didnt work.05:39
daklanyou'd need sudo privileges for that, zed_05:39
zed_daklan: nothing05:39
ankurnydel, haha i don't think that's gonna happen.05:39
luckysmackankur: something that simple seems to have worked...05:40
daklanluckysmack: what errors are you getting?05:40
TheMinimalistWhat is the difference between the Minimal CD and the regular 12.04 LTS if the Minimal CD will still result in a 5GB install? I ask because I'll be getting a netbook ( 1.6GHz processor dual-core, 1GB RAM ) and am looking for the smallest install and memory footprint05:40
nydelankur: it will! you'll see! (i don't even believe me)05:40
zed_daklan: nothing05:40
ankurluckysmack, haha i know :D05:40
zed_no output05:40
nydelbkc_: i never learned anything about lua. should i?05:40
bkc_TheMinimalist: If you want small... don't go for ubuntu...05:40
ankurnydel, let us hope soo. I hate multimedia taking too long to load up :P05:40
daklanzed_: try lsmod|grep iwlagn again05:40
bkc_nydel: yes, it's a nice language :)05:40
zed_daklan: sudo ?05:41
luckysmackdaklan: i pasted them in my link. but closing and reopening the terminal after those were run, seems to have fixed it.05:41
daklanzed_: nope05:41
daklanluckysmack: good! :)05:41
zed_daklan: nothing no output05:41
nydelankur: and 99.(loop for i from 0 to (get-universal-time) do (format t "9")% of the media is crap05:41
TheMinimalistbkc_: What would you personally recommend then? Ubuntu seems amazing for a server ( 500MB total install? ) but seems bloated for a desktop ( 5GB? )05:41
daklanzed_: interesting05:41
zed_daklan: http://pastebin.com/Re3R6H1x05:41
ankurnydel, didn't understand a word :\ not much of a geek05:42
nydelankur: 99.99999999% of the media that takes so long to load is crap05:42
bkc_TheMinimalist: I'd recommend xubuntu, if at all ubuntu...05:42
ankurnydel hahaha true that05:42
TheMinimalistbkc_ May I PM you?05:42
bkc_TheMinimalist: sure05:42
nydelbkc_: nice for what, or, what sort of programming do you do? is lua easy to use for gui?05:43
bkc_nydel: lua is something you use for embedded scripting... not as a separate program :)05:43
ankurguys i want to create my own operating system as my final year engineering project, i'm clueless from where to start. Any ideas?05:43
daklanzed_: sudo modprobe iwl496505:43
bkc_ankur: GLHF, you'll need it ^^05:43
nydelankur: do you use any of the popular web servers, like facébook, twiddler etc05:43
zed_daklan: nothing05:44
zed_remmber this is kde05:44
daklanzed_: then look it up using lsmod. If no output, you may need to Google exactly what package provides that module05:44
daklanzed_: won't matter if it's kde. looks like you're just missing the driver05:44
nydelbkc_: could it be useful for collecting a program written in different scripting languages?05:44
nydelbkc_: often i write a portion in lisp & a portion in ba/sh or perl, my methods of combining them are messy05:45
daklanzed_: i wonder if the shipped kernel includes that module. It may not05:45
zed_daklan: yeah I don't know05:45
daklanzed_: sorry, which version are you running?05:46
pupilhello everyone, my x server is error05:48

drupinDuplicate sources.list entry http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-security/universe i386 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/security.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_precise-security_universe_binary-i386_Packages)05:50
drupinhow i remove this05:50
Rootbrianthere seems to be an issue with Cheese. It just will not start at all. All I get is it crashing all the time and I'm curious as to when a fix will be released soon.05:50
thufir_I'm using DAR to create DVD backup slices.  How large should the slices be?   There's a slight problem with large files:  http://askubuntu.com/questions/187954/dar-slice-size-for-dvds  because ISO 9660 doesn't allow for large files.  I'm looking for the most space efficient slice size.05:50
daxdrupin: check in /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* for a duplicate entry that looks like that05:50
bkc_thufir_: just use split and cat :/05:50
drupinok dax a min05:51
thufir_bkc_:  heh.  wow, that sounds quite painful.  it's just that everytime I do the arithmetic to minimize wasted DVD space, it's either too large or too small.05:52
bkc_how hard can it be? just divide the files into parts that together completely fills up a DVD :/05:53
ankurbkc_, you mean the magazine?05:53
ankurnydel, i use fb twitter g+05:53
nydelcool i'm running awesomewm for the first time05:53
ankurnydel, helps me stay connected and updated05:53
thufir_bkc_: I'm not sure that you understand my question, thank you, though.05:53
bkc_ankur: magazine? o.O05:54
ankurbkc_, what's glhf?05:54
nydelankur: me too, but i don't like any of them. they don't help me stay connected or updated at all. if anything they create distance between myself & friends i might make an effort to see (& vise versa) if these social bits didn't exist05:55
RootbrianI'm using gnome-fallback. Usually I have gnome-panel running within fluxbox. It's just brilliant. No need for compiz.05:55
bkc_thufir_: I think I do... you can't put files bigger than 2GB on an iso9660-fs, so you have to split the files to be less than 2GB but at the same time use al available space on the disk...05:55
bkc_ankur: Good Luck, Have Fun05:55
phyrexianslugGLHF -> Good Luck,  High Five05:55
luckysmackankur: ok maybe it didnt work.05:55
ankurbkc_, haha, tq05:55
ankurluckysmack, what didn't work05:55
bkc_thufir_: correct?05:56
luckysmackit will download and attempt to install a package, then beore it finishes, it wil tell me: E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)05:56
thufir_bkc_: yes, that's the problem.  1024MB perhaps?05:56
ankurnydel, it surely makes you lazy and not get you to meet them, but then everything has it's pros and cons05:56
nydelof course, yeah, you're right ankur05:56
luckysmack `sudo dpkg --configure -a' will again try to install them, but give the same error.05:56
nydelbrb switchign back to cinnamon05:57
ankurluckysmack, umm are you on live session or what?05:57
=== user___ is now known as rootbrian
bkc_thufir_: how is 1024*4 4.7? that would be 4GB... you have to divide them at a npot value... 1604MB would almost completely fill each DVD...05:57
rootbrianfigured the /name command didn't work in chatzilla.05:57
ankurluckysmack, try this http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=164217305:58
daklanluckysmack: try to uninstall the package that's causing the issue (using -f)05:58
bkc_thufir_: actually, just remembered that most DVDs are only 4.5GB, so that would be 1536MB / splice05:58
luckysmacki get: E: Could not get lock /var/lock/aptitude - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)05:58
bkc_thufir_: I'd go for 1500, to be on the same side :)05:58
ankuranyone here aware of shell scripting and stuff?05:59
daklanluckysmack: you have a stale aptitude process05:59
Janosankur, i know about stuff :)05:59
ankurdaklan, yeah that can be the case, luckysmack are you using software centre to maybe download or maybe ubuntu is updating05:59
daklanluckysmack: look for any aptitude processes using ps05:59
daklanluckysmack: then kill that sucker :)06:00
luckysmackthe only thing i have been using is terminal and chrome06:00
ankurJanos, i wanted to make an operating system for my final year engineering project i don't know where to start06:00
thufir_bkc_:  ok, thanks06:00
ankurJanos, mind tipping?06:00
Janosankur, at the beginning ? :P06:01
ankurJanos, yeah and where is that? :P06:01
luckysmackankur: in regards to the link you sent me :http://bpaste.net/show/PPj4IUPs7jNlG680XiuX/06:02
hficif ur having issues with /var/lock why don't u just delete the file from lock?06:03
thufir_if you leave out the -p flag for DAR (Disk ARchive), and the hard drive fills up, will DAR pause and prompt you to remove files, press enter, and then continue after user input?  Or, is it not quite that smart?06:04
daklanluckysmack: some proc is using that config.dat. lsof|grep <whatever> file and see if that process is something that should be running06:05
bkc_thufir_: I've never used DAR... I use dd, split and cat06:05
luckysmacki tried killing aptitude and its still shows up with ps. not doing it right? I tried 'sudo killall aptitude' and 'sudo kill 21704' (the pid)06:05
daklanluckysmack: kill -9 <pid>06:05
hfickill -9 pid06:05
thufir_bkc_: ok, thaks I'm trying that slice size you suggested.  I think it will be close enough for gov'mt work.06:05
drupin/etc/apt/sources.list.d two enteries of dvd.list06:05
bkc_thufir_: also, for an automated backup-system, that's a really bad idea...06:05
thufir_bkc_: why is that a bad idea?06:06
bkc_thufir_: the pause-and-wait-for-user-input-thingy that is...06:06
thufir_oh, yeah, I'm just backing up an entire hard drive in order to format it.  It's a one-time backup.06:07
bkc_thufir_: then I'd suggest a removable harddrive instead :)06:07
thufir_lol, yes, that would make more sense. I'm not always known for doing things the sensible way...06:08
luckysmackdaklan: `lsof | grep config.dat` doesnt come up with any results06:08
bkc_thufir_: have a look att clonezilla, it's a live-distro built for exactly this purpose :)06:08
thufir_will do, thanks :)06:08
xkillredo is easier06:08
luckysmackdaklan: kill -9 pid killed aptitude, but still same error.06:09
Janosso i have not been paying much attention to file systems lately and suddenly i find this /run directory, ls -lid tells me it shares the same inode as /var/run which leaves me with two questions: first, is it possible to hard link directories on ext4 ? and more importantly, why the hell do we keep putting more stuff in / ? :P06:09
ankurluckysmack, i am no expert bro, sudo apt works when i restart my terminal06:09
luckysmackwould a simple restart fix this?06:09
ankurluckysmack, from what i can see it's the half installed program that' causing the problem, try uninstalling it06:09
daklanluckysmack: tried to uninstall the package you were trying to install?06:09
Pazziehi all, i want to add my additional hdd (existing one) i can see him but if i want to mount it it keeps saying in correct filesystem, what happend was i reinstalled my system and now i want to add the harddrive again06:09
daklanankur: good insight :)06:09
luckysmackyea i have tried.06:09
bkc_thufir_: http://clonezilla.org/ :)06:09
Pazziei my previous configuration it was a lvm06:10
luckysmack ill post the output06:10
drupinthe double enteries not moving out06:10
drupinin the PPA06:10
xkillsudo dpkg --configure -a && sudo apt-get autoremove06:10
ankurdaklan, how much of coding do you know on linux?06:10
daklanPazzie: specify the correct file type using -t parameter06:11
xkillthufir_: http://redobackup.org/06:11
daklanankur: by "coding", you mean scripting?06:11
Pazziedaklan: in the fstab file?06:11
daklanankur: run of the mill shell scripting, python, some other stuff06:11
daklanPazzie: mount -t06:12
daklanPazzie: add your special ingredients to that command06:12
luckysmacki closed my terminal, and tried again. here are my results, still broken: http://bpaste.net/show/1sltGB5f9h5og1qouRYL/06:12
daklanPazzie: in fact, "man mount"06:12
daklanluckysmack: sudo apt-get remove --purge man-db06:13
Pazziewell what i did was this, i put the uuid in the fstab file (since i can see the harddrive) and then i do sudo mount -a06:13
daklanluckysmack: it's getting stuck at that point06:13
daklanPazzie: try it first using "mount", then modify your fstab according to what worked with mount06:13
thufir_xkill: thanks. I think DAR will suffice for tonight, but good to know.06:14
alqasmeysudo apt-get autotremove06:14
ankurdaklan, any tips for a noob aiming to make an OS06:14
JanosPazzie, just my two cents, if you had a lvm config on this drive you can't mount it directly AFAIK, you have to assemble the lvm first and then mount the lvm device06:14
daklanPazzie: you may be specifying the wrong fs type, or you specified the entire drive when in fact you want to mount a partition06:14
daklanankur: an OS? big dreams there, brother06:15
daklanankur: and no, you can't clobber an OS together using shell scripting06:15
Pazziedaklan: yes thats te error message i am receiving06:15
daklanPazzie: inspect the partitions on that drive using fdisk -l06:16
daklanPazzie: my guess is that your drive is partitioned, and you're trying to mount /dev/sda instead of /dev/sda1 (as an example)06:16
Pazziedaklan: if i do fdisk -l nothing happends (do i need to type the hdd behind it?06:17
xkillshould have listed the drives06:17
xkillsudo fdisk -l06:18
hficPazzie, you need sudo06:18
daklanPazzie: yep. "man fdisk" for more info06:18
daklanyeah, and whatever the other folks said06:18
jmstickdak is apt-get purge program the same as apt-get remove --purge program06:18
ankurdaklan, yeah i know but i need to start with something. and we need to dream big, haven't you heard? Shoot for the moon, don't worry even if you miss you'll land amongst the stars :P06:18
Pazziedaklan: yes that is correct, but i have read, that nowdays ubuntu mounts on uuid instead of /dev/sdb for example06:18
luckysmackdaklan: running `sudo apt-get remove --purge man-db` will uninstall my ubuntu-desktop and a lot of other things. : gnome-user-guide* man-db* ubuntu-desktop* ubuntu-docs* ubuntu-standard* yelp*06:19
daklanPazzie: yes, that's if you reference the correct uuid06:19
daklanluckysmack: wow, use dpkg instead06:19
xkillsudo dpkg --configure -a && sudo apt-get autoremove06:19
hficPazzie, blkid will show u UUIDs06:19
daklanxkill: dpkg is failing on the configure step, that won't work06:20
luckysmacksudo dpkg --configure -a doesnt work.06:20
Pazziedaklan: i see the drive with fdisk -l (/dev/sdc1 system GPT) but i dont see the filesystem it is06:20
hficPazzie, sudo blkid06:21
daklanluckysmack: dpkg -r06:21
luckysmackdpkg gives me this: http://bpaste.net/show/52q4AYLP288zruBq2lpc/06:21
daklani had to man that stupid flag, haven't used dpkg by itself in a while :(06:21
Pazziehfic: this is what i now see: /dev/sdc1: UUID="wttki2-9ggl-b4Zx-7dRc-T522-SfFl-BnSHNP" TYPE="LVM2_member"06:21
daklanPazzie: oh, it's LVM06:21
hficPazzie, your drive is LVM06:22
Pazzieyes, i have tried it in my last configuration06:22
Pazziebut i dont want that anymore06:22
Pazziei dont need lvm06:22
jmstickluckysmack fuser -v /var/cache/debconf/config.dat to find out which process is using this file.06:22
luckysmacksudo dpkg -r man-db gives me this: http://bpaste.net/show/Xj6jfPNpF9TweN4pz79S/06:23
Pazziebut there is still data on the drive06:23
luckysmackjmstick: no results06:23
jmsticksudo dpkg --configure -a doesnt work?06:24
luckysmackjmstick: no that gives me: http://bpaste.net/show/52q4AYLP288zruBq2lpc/06:24
daklanluckysmack: tried the -f flag?06:25
Pazziehfic: or daklan any idea? i just want to access the data and after that i can repartition the drive if needed06:25
luckysmackdaklan: aptitude install -f  ? yea i have06:25
daklanPazzie: never tried mounting lvm on a separate machine. I'm sure there's a way, just haven't tried it06:26
Janosluckysmack, what's the status of the package ? dpkg --get-selections <package>06:26
luckysmackif i do that with aptitude, it wants to remove ubuntu-desktop, since it wants to now remove man-db06:26
hficPazzie, do pvs06:26
Pazzieanyone? hfic06:27
ankurdaklan, there?06:27
jmstickluckysmack tryed a restart and or: sudo apt-get install -f && sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get update06:27
JanosPazzie, pvs, vgs and lvs should give you more info06:27
Pazziepvs? just as a command?06:27
daklanPazzie: tried this? http://linuxers.org/howto/how-mount-linux-lvm-volume-partitions-linux06:27
hficPazzie, type pvs, and it will show the groupname the LVM belongs 2 and mount it by the group06:27
daklanankur: yep06:27
ankurdaklan, read my last reply :D06:27
luckysmackJanos: oracle-java7-installerpurge06:27
luckysmacki asked about a restart, but people were still feeding me ideas to try and fix. so not not yet06:28
daklanankur: hard to do that when you're ssh-ing to a headless server and there's tons of text scrolling in your window06:28
Janosluckysmack, according to your paste, the package with the problem seems to be man-db, not oracle-java06:28

daklanluckysmack: i'd do a dpkg -rf man-db, but i'd make sure it doesn't take the other dependent packages with it06:29
ankurdaklan, anyways any tips as to where i should start??06:30
luckysmackyea i know. i didnt touch man-db until someone mentioned to see if removing it would help. i didnt install it myself. it either was on the system, or some other package installed it. ubuntu-desktop depends on it.06:30
daklanankur: start with robot rtos06:30
Janosluckysmack, dpkg --get-selections man-db ?06:31
ankurdaklan, what's that06:31
daklanankur: you'd learn a lot about the hardware if you start with robot kits. I mean you need an in-depth knowledge of hardware for you to delve into OS programming06:31
luckysmackJanos: man-dbdeinstall06:32
ankuri know about computer organization06:32
daklanankur: you know those robot kits that they sell? they come with RTOS development environments - real time operating system06:32
ankurdaklan, yeah iknow06:32
luckysmackbut i think thats because i was asked to try and remove it. the reason its on deinstall06:32
Janosluckysmack, sudo apt-get install man-db ?06:32
Pazziedaklan: hfic  i am now a little bit futher06:33
daklanPazzie: great!06:33
Pazzienow i get this if i want to mount it: sudo mount /dev/s-ftp/Data /media/Downloads mount: special device /dev/s-ftp/Data does not exist06:33
luckysmackJanos: that didnt break. looked like it worked. but man-db status is still deinstall06:33
luckysmackJanos: http://bpaste.net/show/1TFEjyhz1rtmJIhntsMc/06:34
Janosluckysmack, echo 'man-db install' | sudo dpkg --set-selection, and then try to update or whatever you were trying to do in there first place06:35
Pazziedaklan: /dev/s-ftp/Data is the lv name i get when i did:sudo lvdisplay /dev/s-ftp06:35
luckysmackok ill try06:36

nbubuntuI need a  bit help , I can't get galaxy tab mount on ubuntu , not sure the reason was , installed gmtp and it doesn't get connect06:45
PazzieJanos: what happend is, when i first installed ubuntu, i choose to use lvm, (i had 4 disks, 1 os and 3 data) but i sized my os disk to small, and i needed to extend it, but with gparted it was not possible so i then thought to reinstall my system with a bigger hdd. (since it is a vm, i removed my os disk and i have kept my 3 data disks) but now i want to add my hdd disks but the system is not allowing me06:45
hficnewbie, bleachbit overwrites data rendering it complete garbage that can't be recovered. If you did something to a program try reinstalling06:46
JanosPazzie, pastebin cat /proc/partitions06:47
newbiehfic: I was hoping that I could just remove something or do a command and recover the program.  I remember with Thunderbird I had a similar problem and I had to delete something and it worked after that06:47
PazzieJanos: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1206274/06:48
hficnewbie, without knowing what was deleted or changed reinstall is the quickest option.06:48
msmith0957have a new install of ubuntu on an old laptop, but can't get audio working :/ the card is shown under aplay -l but not shown in the vol control as a 'hardware output device' :/06:50

JanosPazzie, well bad news, you erased one of the partitions of your LVM Physical Volume i don't know how to recover that, not sure it's even possible without recovering that partition06:54
Pazzieno... sda is empty that is okay the data i need is on sdb1 and sdc106:55
MK`Is there a command to list all folders I am sharing over a network?06:57
Janosyes but sdb1 and sdc1 along with sdaN where the components of the Volume Group named s-ftp and now the sdaN is no more, so the Volume Group s-ftp won't start, which means the Logical Volumes Data and Software won't start either :(06:57

JanosPazzie, what's wrong there ?06:59
PazzieJanos: that is the disk that i am trying to mount07:00
Asad2005i am getting this error "postdrop: warning: unable to look up public/pickup: No such file or directory"07:00
PazzieJanos: but you are saying, i cannot access the data anymore on the drives? and i need to wipe them, to be able to mount them?07:01
JanosPazzie, the error you are seeing there is just because fdisk doesn't support GPT, you can use parted to list the partitions of that disk like this, sudo parted -l /dev/sdb07:01
JanosPazzie, but there is nothing wrong with sdb or sdc according to LVM, the problem is a missing physical partition that is no longer on the system and i assumed was on sda and got erased, and like i said, if all the parts of a Physical Volume are not available, this volume won't start07:03

JanosPazzie, sorry man, the physical partitions right now have data that only LVM understand, they don't have any conventional file system that you can mount directly, if lvm does not read it, no one else can, so i have no idea what else to do here07:11
PazzieJanos: and what about install a new ubunutu system with lvm? (with the same name i used before and then try to mount it? )07:12

alkisgI've set up contacts syncing between thunderbird and gmail, but ...I don't remember how I did it, or how to add new google address books. I suspect I've set them up in evolution in previous Ubuntu versions, and thunderbird is seeing them via the preinstalled EDS (evolution data server) Contact Integration plugin.07:20
alkisgSo, my question is, is it true that thunderbird by default on Precise has no way at all to sync with google contacts without manually installing a plugin?07:20
RPG-MasterI aught not ask general networking questions here, should I?07:20
JanosPazzie, that would not work but you can always try :)07:21
bkc_RPG-Master: shoot07:21
RPG-MasterI have this cheap but supposedly decent wireless router I got from Monoprice, which I use as a bridge from my parent's room (source of the cable) to the rest of the house. It works great... but it drops it's connection to the main router at what seems to be random. What could the problem be, and how can I troubleshoot it?07:22
RPG-MasterI hear that the monoprice router runs some sort of Tomato, if that helps07:22
bkc_RPG-Master: It propably overflows in a buffer somewhere... start by checking if UPnP is turned on in the router-config (both of them), and if it's on turn it off :)07:23
RPG-Masterbkc_: checking now07:23
bkc_UPnP is garbage, right up there with Avahi and ZeroConf...07:23
Elthommohi, anybody here good with dual boot ?07:26
bkc_Elthommo: shoot07:26
Elthommocool. win 7 with ubuntu. I have set up 4 primary partitions07:27
Elthommowin, ubuntu, shared space and swap07:28
Janosbkc_, they ideas behind them are quite nice, the implementations not so much :P07:28
RPG-Masterbkc_: Ah, the main router, a Netgear, has UPnP turned on. What will happen if I turn it off?07:28
bkc_Janos: ofc. as usual then ^^07:28
Janosbkc_, yeah nothing new there ...07:29
bkc_RPG-Master: unless you have it to open up ports and backdoors, nothing :)07:29
PazzieJanos: thnx for all your help, and off the record, i hate lvm... it just cost me my keepass database and my document with al my license keys....07:29
RPG-Masterbkc_: Hmm... seems I remember using it for my torrents...07:29
bkc_RPG-Master: just manually open the port you use for torrents... UPnP is a _*huge*_ securityrisk anyway...07:30
ElthommoI have Windows in place, now doing ubuntu. questin - do I put bootloader on /dev/sda or on /dev/sda2  - the partition I have formatted ext4 for ubuntu ?07:32

JanosPazzie, glad i could help or not help :(, anyway lvm is really useful, just got a remember to remove the physical partition from the lvm before wiping out the disk next time, if it makes you feel any better we all have our "LVMs" mine was with solaris meta devices :)07:34
RPG-Masterbkc_: OK, I turned it off... now I'm wondering how to test it out on the bridge router.07:34
bkc_RPG-Master: put some huge load on it, preferable with lots of new connections (connect/disconnect much) :)07:35
bkc_some kind of network benchmark :)07:35
bkc_for ~6-8h ^^07:35
bkc_netpref is nice :)07:35
PazzieJanos: well no more lvm for me... i also dont need it, since i have all my data allready organised on my different drives07:35
PazzieJanos: it also makes things more difficult07:36

buhmanJanos: gentoo docs: so old and crusty they grow varities of fungus that have been extinct elsewhere for several thousand millenia.07:48
RPG-MasterSo, while still working on my network, I notice most of my torrents are paused due to an error. My external, named "Main Drive" is being called "Main Drive1" by several apps. Come to find out, under /media/ their is both a Main Drive and a Main Drive1, with Main Drive having a gray x in the corner of it.07:48
buhmanbkc_: yes oversimplified.07:48
bkc_RPG-Master: it probably disconnected and the connected the harddrive kinda fast :)07:49
bkc_msmith0957: I'll need more than "no sound" to help you :)07:49

alkisgIs gnome-contacts used at all in Ubuntu?07:53
JanosRPG-Master, sure thing07:54
msmith0957Im guesing yes.07:54
buhmanmsmith0957: you'll essentially want to stop the pulseaudio daemon, remove it from update-rc.d or however ubuntu does things. Then you need to change your asoundrc/asound.conf07:54
buhmanmsmith0957: "change" meaning "make your default output device plug:dmix rather than pulse"07:54
auronandace!info gnome-contacts | alkisg07:54
ubottualkisg: gnome-contacts (source: gnome-contacts): Contacts manager for GNOME. In component universe, is optional. Version 3.4.0-1 (precise), package size 309 kB, installed size 1482 kB07:54
buhmanmsmith0957: reboot: absolutely not07:54
msmith0957buhman: i'll give it a go, I think I tried this same thing yesterday, sans the asound.conf change07:55

alkisgauronandace: ah, it was installed in my setup because I did an upgrade, I just saw that it's not preinstalled by default. So, why is evolution-data-server still preinstalled? Thank you.07:56

Janoszal, here is a list if cards/tuners you can use http://www.techsupportteam.org/forum/linux-alternative-os/5417-saa7134-pci-tv-tuner-cards-linux.html08:30
Janoszal, i'm sure there is a complete list somewhere in the kernel docs, still looking for a link, but you get the idea08:30
msmith0957bkc_: its not ~/.asoundrc/asound.conf ?08:31
idefixmy clipboard seems broken, I can only paste with the middle mouse button but copying won't work with ctrl-c08:32
xkillromance: you will need to run some recovery software. it looks like your ntfs partition is broken08:32

zalJanos: but cableguy installer passed by was watching prime08:33
xkillphotorec is a good linux option that is easy to use08:33
zaland now no more watching08:33
msmith0957bkc_: hmm. Neither .asoundrc or /etc/asound.conf is normally required. You should be able to play and record sound without either (assuming your mic and speakers are hooked up properly). If your system won't work without one, and you are running the most current version of ALSA, you probably should file a bug report. lol, should i file a bug report ??08:34
idefixbkc_ with the request to e-mail it to the makers and it says to cut and paste so it should work08:34
Janoszal, found it, http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/video4linux/CARDLIST.saa7134 basically you have to modprobe saa7134 card=x tuner=y to manually tell the module which card you have in case the autodetect breaks, once you find it you can add it to /etc/module with the parameters you found to work08:34
Romancexkill : are you sure i didnt formatted my windows 7 partition? :(  ,what do you recommend for recovery software08:34
zali isnt it saa7135 ? cuz thats what it is in lspci ?08:34
xkillthe filesystem is listed as "unknown" yes. formatting it would have put it into a known filesystem08:34
bkc_a tip to any op in here... set mode to -q $a, just incase ChanServ/NickServ goes down again... they seem unstable atm08:35
zalwhats the command i should issue for tuner card settings ?08:35

zalwhat does every pony do ?08:38
Janoszal, sudo rmmod saa7134, then sudo modprobe saa7134 card=x tuner=y, where x is a value from the list i just gave you and y is a value from this list http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/video4linux/CARDLIST.tuner08:38

msmith0957bkc_: so my .asoundrc file simply reads "pcm.card0 { type hw  card 0 }" . also, only reason why i was mentioning asound.conf earlier is because buhman mentioned earlier the change i would be required to make would be in there. After adding those few lines above, is there anything i have to restart?08:45
Janoszal, you can try sudo rmmod -f saa7134_alsa08:45
bkc_msmith0957: buhman was refering to 2 separate files, not a file in a directory :) and no, nothing has to be restarted :)08:46
msmith0957bkc_: so, there is an 'asound.conf' i have to create/modify somewhere ? Still no audio :/08:47

msmith0957Janos: with pleasure: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1206424/08:56
Janosmsmith0957, so your problem is, you can't select your card in sound gui right ?08:59
synfin1I've been trying to install 12.04 onto a Dell 14z-5423 (Inspiron).  The computer has an SSD for windows, and a 500gb sata.  Ubuntu can see the 500gb sata via fdisk.  But it cannot see it from the installation menu when selecting partitions.  Any ideas?08:59
lotuspsychjesynfin1:did you change BIOS to ahci?08:59
msmith0957Janos: yes, that was the original problem, the actual hardware device for the card wasnt being populated in the vol control gui08:59
msmith0957But since then, the gui is disabled now that PulseAudio has been killed09:00

Janosonto, that sounds more like a rstudio issue09:05
ontoJanos: so it's not libgobject?09:05
Janosmsmith0957, ok, it's dead then, let's try to start it again and make it work, pulse might suck, but at this point is probably easier to remove ubuntu than pulse :P, do 'pulseaudio --start'09:08
krababbeldoesn't the pulse daemon start automatically when needed?09:08
msmith0957had it killed temporarily ;)09:09
msmith0957but, its started now09:09
synfin1Ok, I tested ahci for sata, and it can still only see the ssd.09:09
bkc_synfin1: are you using raid?09:10
Janosonto, well it's weird that rstudio u suppose to work with ubuntu 10.04+ and yet it's looking for a symbol that does not exists in the libgobject library that comes with your ubuntu 10.04, so my guess here is, that it probably needs a newer version of this lib, try it with 12.04 and if it works, report a bug to rstudio09:10
Janosmsmith0957, ok, now pactl info again pls09:10
krababbelmsmith0957: when you do pulseaudio -k to kill it, it will start itself when any program needs audio, like pavucontrol for example. Btw. I always started it wit pulseaudio -D09:11
msmith0957Janos: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1206456/09:11
ontoJanos: for the record, I had upgraded libgobject manually once because it was a dependency of some software (and the repository didn't have it)09:11
synfin1bkc: No.  The SSD is 32gb, sata is 500gb.  I believe teh ssd is just for windows to boot quickly.  If I run fdisk I can see both hard drives, but the Ubuntu installation screen only sees /dev/sdb (ssd)09:11
msmith0957krababbel: yes, it would normally, but not if you disable autospawning09:11
krababbelyou can also do 'pacmd list' msmith095709:11
krababbelof course msmith095709:12
Janosonto, then i think we found the problem :)09:12

krababbelmsmith0957: what is the issue, you only got dummy output?09:14
msmith0957yes sir09:14
synfin1bkc_: There isn't any such icon on the screen.  It is the "Installation Type" screen.  It has options to create new partition table, add, change, delete, revert, as well as boot loader installation choice.  But none of the new/add/change buttons work09:14

lotuspsychjesynfin1:i think it might help if you would install win7, and make new partition from there to use for ubuntu afterwards09:31
cute_bettongso does anyone know the answer to my question?09:31
msmith0957Janos: anything I should do besides just running it, and then killing it ?09:31
synfin1lotuspsychje: I don't think I was clear.  THe problem is the installation procedure does not see the disks.  Ubuntu itself (via fdisk) can see it just fine.  But when I double click on "Install 12.04 to hard drive" (sic), that tool cannot see the drive09:32
lotuspsychjecute_bettong:maybe a driver needed install?09:32
lotuspsychjesynfin1:yes i understood it good, i think the drive not showing means the drive belongs to win7..try single boot at first09:33

cute_bettonglotuspsychje, well i installed alsa-hda-dkms_0.201209142343~oneiric1_all.deb and it did fix the issue, but it made IDJC audio all choppy, the minute i removed it it went back to being geeky with the headphone jack, plug the headphones in all the way and no sound, pull the plug out just a tiny bit and there's sound but it's low quality09:33
lotuspsychjecute_bettong:any var/log errors that can help us?09:33
cute_bettonglotuspsychje, i don't know what you would need or how to get the log09:34

houmanHi, I have just compiled git (with make) and it created lots of git related directories into my home (e.g. bin, lib, libexec, share and each includes git related files)  Do I have to run 'make' with a prefix to avoid this mess? Why didn't it keep everything in the /usr/local/src as expected?09:39
houmanThe idea is to commpile it in to a debian package09:39
bekkshouman: You have to run configure with a specific prefix to avoid that.09:40
lotuspsychjecute_bettong:did you take a look in 'additional drivers' if your audio card got an alternate driver?09:40
drupindo i partition my flash drive ....before to install the live on in it to gain more than  4Gig of space as mentioned here http://www.pendrivelinux.com/create-a-larger-than-4gb-casper-partition/09:40
cute_bettonglotuspsychje, yes, there's one for my video card, but im using the drivers from ATI website09:41
xkillyou can do it before or after09:41
drupinor it should have the live OS persistant from before09:41
cute_bettonglotuspsychje, also nothings showing up when i insert or remove the headphone jack09:41
joshmcdrupin: I'm not sure, but I think the pendrivelinux articles are fairly old. Is that dated?09:41
jribhouman: why compile git?  It's in the repositorise09:41
houman@bekks: ah I see. but there is no ./configure in git's source. What shall I do then?09:41
xkilldupin: best to partition before hand so you dont need another live disk to do it later09:41
bekkshouman: Best thing is to use git from the official repos.09:41

houmanhttp://git-scm.com/ kind of intrigues you into installing the latest version. :)09:43
msmith0957Janos: the Pulse Audio Sound Server is still there, but I belive it is affectively killed. vol controls wont open bc "unable to connect to Pulse Audio"09:43
drupin2Gb is enuff xkill09:44
xkill2GB cuz thats the most you can get with fat16, and fat16 cuz it a lot faster than Fat3209:44
drupinwhat i name this partition09:44
Janosmsmith0957, and aplay -L ?09:45
xkillthat fat16 partition; it doesnt matter, the USB creator will name it. the ext2 must be labeled casper09:45
drupinok i make it 2 gigs a min09:45
msmith0957Janos: null,  Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)..... pulse, PulseAudio Sound Server09:45

drupinyes ... its just flash memory09:49

drupinnow the second drive mu make casper or casper-rw as per this article http://www.pendrivelinux.com/create-a-larger-than-4gb-casper-partition/ the live persistant usb usb i am on now also has file named casper-rw09:52
Janosmsmith0957, well, pulse does see your card, and according to the log, it's able to get a lock on the card, so what krababbel mentioned should not be the issue, al i see is pulse trying to open devices that do not exists, and not trying the devices that do exist09:53
xkillyup thats right09:53
drupinext2 or ext409:54
drupinext4 will be faster ?09:54
msmith0957Janos: when I was reading through the log output that i pasted, it seemed like there were a ton of errors relating to opening the devices via a particular format09:54
drupinand is swap good or bad to keep09:55
msmith0957and then eventually failed that the card had failed to load the module09:55
drupinmy previous install used to freez when the swap was there09:56
Janosmsmith0957, i'm going to take a wild guess here, but i think this might be related to udev not naming devices correctly, this should definitively be reported at launchpad09:56
xkillif you are going to use swap, its better to have it on a diff USB09:56
drupini dint get .. diff usb?09:56
msmith0957Oh noes :/09:56
drupinmeans one usb dedicated to swap itself09:57
xkillif you are going to have a swap partition, do it on a second USB flash drive. or dont do it at all09:57
msmith0957Janos: was it you earlier that said this was almost definitely not a bug ? lol09:57
Janosmsmith0957, now to fix it, yes i would try to remove pulse and wait to see if ppl at launchpad find anything, but removing pulse is not a task i should be doing at 4 am in the morning, so i think i'm going to call it for today09:57
drupinok i dont do it09:57
msmith0957Janos: yes i concur.. 6am over here ! time for bed..09:57
Janosmsmith0957, mm don't remember that :P09:57
msmith0957well, anyway, thanks a lot, appreciate your kind support09:58

xkilldrupin; correct10:01
krababbelmsmith0957: not sure, the one where Janos saw pulse getting lock on the card10:01
Janosmsmith0957, no problem, good news is, your audio device is working, so all you have to do now is get rid of pulse, hint, start here /usr/share/alsa, make sure you backup everyything in there and simply start breaking apart everything that has to do with pulse :P10:01

With both connected i can only connected to devices via the LAN connection, not to the Internet which is through the wireless connection. Anyone know how to get internet requests to route through the wireless instead?10:50
jhkerjrib: many thanks for the help. I seem to be back on the move...10:50
nikozzzzzzi didnt understand your question.. you need to go to the internet over wireless not over lan cable ?10:52
nikozzzzzzthen you try to remove the default route from your lan connection10:53
nikozzzzzzjust an ip address and a netmask to be left for your lan10:53
thufir_is it still "startx" to start the GUI?10:53
nikozzzzzzyep it starts XSERVER10:54
andornautnikozzzzzz: yep10:54
andornautnikozzzzzz: ah, so remove the gateway from the lan connection settings ?10:54
nikozzzzzzopen your network properties a10:54
nikozzzzzztry this. i think it should help10:55
nikozzzzzzwhen a OS sees two gateways it has no idea through which one to go10:56
systemclientAs a user I can enable the wifi card using `nmcli nm wifi on`. How can I enable the wifi card as root?10:56
nikozzzzzzso we should deprive itfrom one gateway10:56
nikozzzzzztype sudo in front of yiur command10:56
nikozzzzzzsudo ifup wlan0 up10:57
nikozzzzzzthis could also do the trick10:57
systemclientnikozzzzzz: there is no wlan0 interface at that point10:57
thufir_nikozzzzzz: I dunno, I thought there was something which changed a few years ago about that.  it wasn't deprecated?10:58
thufir_nikozzzzzz: startx I mean10:58
nikozzzzzzno startx runs ok as i know it.10:58
nikozzzzzzthen insert your wlan instead of wlan010:59
andornautnikozzzzzz: I couldn't get it to work via network manager, so I just disabled hotplug for eth0 and set it up via /etc/network/interfaces (left wlan0 managed by netman). Works now, thanks.10:59
systemclientnikozzzzzz: if I type ifconfig, it only shows eth0 and lo10:59
nikozzzzzzor type  'sudo' in front of your command10:59
thufir_nikozzzzzz: thanks11:00
systemclientnikozzzzzz: I just did sudo -s11:00
nikozzzzzzsystemclient yes it should do it. nomatterhow you obtain root previligies)11:00
systemclientnikozzzzzz: the thing is: if I call that nmcli command from my user, it works. When I call it as root, it works. But if I as root call `bash -c 'nmcli …' me`, it does not work11:01

sudhiesing: yes, that sounds better, but does the directory /media/philipp exists? why don't you save your fstab and issue "sudo mount -a"?12:27
blackshirtiqualfragile, your error says some local error12:28
sudhithat'll tell you if there are any problems12:28
esingsudhi That directory does not exist. Because the drive is already mounted so mount -a does not work12:28
sudhiesing: then unmount it (make sure you aren't accessing it from browser/player), and repeat12:29
blackshirtesing, you should passing remount options to mount command if you want to remount12:29

tsimpsone-v-o: use the wuby installer, it allows you to install Ubuntu directly from windows (as if it was an application) and will not touch any partitions etc13:16
tsimpson!wuby | e-v-o13:16
=== Guest85114 is now known as z0rr0
ubottuWubi is an Ubuntu installer for Windows users that allows you to install and uninstall Ubuntu like a Windows application, in a simple and safe way. http://wubi-installer.org/support.php and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide for troubleshooting. Please  file bugs at http://launchpad.net/wubi/+filebug. For Ubuntu Oneiric/11.10 http://releases.ubuntu.com/oneiric/wubi.exe13:17
tsimpsonyes, spelling is required :)13:17
e-v-otsimpson: where does it install it to?!13:17
jribnjr: google lies :x13:17
tsimpsone-v-o: to a file on the disk13:17
tsimpsone-v-o: it even comes with an easy uninstaller13:18

ubottuiwert: To install Skype on Ubuntu, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Skype - To record on Skype, check: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SkypeRecordingHowto - Please use open protocols instead if you can, see !Ekiga13:19
tsimpsone-v-o: no, it's fully native, it's just that instead of running from a partition, it runs from a file13:19
truexfan81ok funny question13:19
tsimpsone-v-o: the system fully boots into Ubuntu, just from a file located on the windows filesystem13:19
e-v-odo you still get dual boot?13:19
truexfan81i'm installing 12.04 minimal on my pc right now13:19
tsimpsone-v-o: yes, you get the option of Windows (default) or Ubuntu13:19
truexfan81my question is, if i choose not to install a de, will it automatically install xorg when i add the ppa and install mate later?13:20
tsimpsone-v-o: it actually uses the windows boot loader, rather than grub, so it's just using the existing windows boot process13:20
e-v-owhat if we decide to wipe windows in the future?13:20
jribtruexfan81: it should, unless the packager did something weird...13:20
truexfan81i think that is what i will do then13:20
=== Guest95655 is now known as xazax_
tsimpsone-v-o: you can just put the Ubuntu CD in and reboot, then do an install. think of wubi as a test-drive, but without the slow live CD13:21
truexfan81keep it as minimal as possible for max speed, even tho its a dualcore 2.9 lol13:21
truexfan81was using mint 13 before, deicded i wanted something lighter/faster13:21
BluesKaj!xorg | truexfan8113:21
ubottutruexfan81: The X Window system is the part of your system that's responsible for graphical output. To restart X, type 'sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm' on an ubuntu system. replace with kdm on Kubuntu. To fix screen resolution or other X problems: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution . Also see !xorgconf13:21

savioi refer this link http://askubuntu.com/questions/140002/brightness-keys-in-dell-n4010-14r-causing-freezes but not really applied it13:23
truexfan81oh, yeah it will make one when i run sudo nvidia-xconfig after installing the nvidia drivers13:23
tsimpsone-v-o: well, as wubi doesn't touch any partitions, there's really no real risk at all13:23
saviois this helpful or anyone has any solution13:24

truexfan81BluesKaj:  i've been running ubuntu/mint for a year and a half so i know a little13:24
e-v-oso the only downside is that if I want to remove windows in the future Ubuntu will also be wiped and require a fresh installation?13:24
njrjrib: sorry, I misread... its only available as a package for 12.10. Sorry for the trouble13:25
jribnjr: no problem13:25
tsimpsone-v-o: yes, because the Ubuntu "disk" is just hosted on the already existing Windows filesystem, and there's no easy way to get that on to a physical partition13:26
truexfan81BluesKaj: the fun part will be typing that long mate ppa link in text only mode lol13:26

ubottuTo just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin.

rsserthe id is 0bda:818914:31
blackshirtCrancko, let's me explain14:31
cranckoyes pls14:31
jribprashant_123456: alright, well the basic syntax for rename is « rename -n 's/foo/bar/' file1 file2 ... » where "foo" is what you want to replace and "bar" is what you want to replace it with.  Now "foo" is a regular expression which is basically like globbing in the terminal but more powerful.  One example, is you can use character classes to mean "any character of this type".  So for example, "[0-9]" means14:31
jriband digit 0-9.  So let's try this for starters and see what the result is: rename -n 's/[0-9]/X/' *  .  It is very important that you remember the "-n" since this command doesn't do what you actually want to do (but is a good start)14:31
=== Guest57289 is now known as Ares99

DoxinI'm having some trouble receiving tv using my tuner. plugging the cable into a tv finds ~20 channels. plugging it into my pc finds 4. what gives?14:37
clamscanfidel: ok, so what? have you ever used clamav?14:37
jribprashant_123456: cool.  So you see in its current state 's/[0-9]/X' replaces one digit with X.  We want to change that a bit.  First off we want to make sure the digit is at the beginning of the file name.  The '^' character is used to denote the beginning.  The other thing we want to do is match not just one digit, but exactly two.  We could do this by writing our expression as '^[0-9][0-9]', but there's a14:37
jribslightly nicer way.  We can use {2} to mean do the last type of match twice.  So our final result will look like '^[0-9]{2}'.  This means match at the beginning, exactly 2 digits (0-9).  And our final command will be: « rename -n 's/^[0-9]{2}//' * ».  Give that a try14:37
cranckoblackshirt I now try lilve cd first, then I will check ur tips14:37
jribprashant_123456: check and see if that looks right14:38
clamscanvery helpful -_-14:38
blackshirtcrancko, but if you need your network managed by network manager, you shouldn't configure your /etc/network/interfaces, or just for lo for loopback... And you can configure your network through network manager settings14:39
jribCong: I don't know then :/  What happens when you try to use the GUI to empty trash?  You could always just delete the relevant directory on the usb, but again, I don't know if there is a better way14:39
clamscanfound, the string is 'FOUND'. thanks anyway14:39
blackshirtcrancko, that's you should understand basically14:40
CongThat's the problem. I have stuff in the system rubbish bin, and the files from the usb get mixed with the ones on the system, and emptying it will remove the others that are in the other rubbish bin aswell, jirb.14:41
jribCong: I see.  Well is just deleting the trash directory on the usb a possibility?14:42
BlueWolfHi, I have a new Canon Pixma MG2140 all in one printer and when I use XSane to try scan documents it says - no devices available, I have got it to print so how can I get it to scan?14:42

jribCong: yep14:43

tim442BlueWolf: not had experience with that device, but i've found on other printers, the scan button does not properly intiate a scan, but using the scanning application in ubuntu to initiate will properly start the scan14:45

gsteinertN03L: i guarantee that 90% of methods you try for anything will hit a snag somewhere. the important part is not to give up just becuase it didn't work first time. what problems were you experiencing?15:09
araxishey everyone, i have a question regarding ubuntu server if anyone has a moment :)15:09
zalubuntu tv server ?15:10
gsteinertaraxis: if you have a question, ask! don't ask to ask15:10
gaelfx!ask > araxis15:10
ubottuaraxis, please see my private message15:10
BluesKajgaelfx, reboot , or try toi set the pavucontrol to the setting with analog in it15:10
blackshirtaraxis, what the problems ?15:10
N03Lgsteinert: I haven't given up. I've just posponed.. LOL! I'll get back to you on that one.,15:10
araxisblackshirt, i was given a few older servers and i am planning to run 2 of them. i was wondering if its feasible to install ubuntu to both of them15:12
araxisi guess ermm, thats not a good description of what i want..15:12
blackshirthow older your server?15:12
dubacoHi, a friend has asked me to fix there px, i read an article from someone in a magasine about how they used a bootable usb to clean there windows drive from a virus, have you any idea how i can clean the windows drive on my friends machine. I have booted into a her machine via a usb drive, the graphics wont work can you help me scan the windows drive using clamav on the usb ubuntu?15:12
gaelfxBluesKaj: I just figured it out, it seems no matter which I set fallback to, it defaults to hdmi15:13
araxisi wanted to have these 2 servers work together or act as one system, i dont know if thats a reasonable expectation15:13
fidelaraxis: what for? or why?15:13
araxisthey're really old, like, original xeons i believe15:13
blackshirtaraxis, yes..you can15:13
araxisno particular reason fidel, i just got these servers because i wanted to play around with the hardware and stuff15:14
esingI followed this instruction but nautilus does not inhabit the options mentioned in the instructions http://www.techdrivein.com/2011/06/how-to-hide-mounted-drives-from-ubuntu.html15:14
blackshirtduraco, yes,15:14
zalubuntu tv server15:14
araxisi thought it would be cool to explore set up one server, then i thought it would be cooler to have multiple machines be connected together15:14
blackshirtesing, sorry, i can't follow your link given15:14
araxisthe long term goal isnt much, probably host my mud on it, and maybe others15:15
esingblackshirt solved, it was because the tutorial was for ubuntu 11 (not unity)15:15
esingblackshirt instead i need to use this command: gconftool --set /apps/compiz-1/plugins/unityshell/screen0/options/devices_option  --type=int 015:15
blackshirtaraxis, you will learn some great thing...15:15
gaelfxBluesKaj: any idea how I can change the default?15:15
blackshirtgreats esing15:16
BluesKajgaelfx, ok , open this file with root permissions , /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf15:16
araxisblackshirt its all about learning for me, and trying complicated stuff. if i break my installation, no worries15:16
araxiscomplicated for me anyway15:16
gaelfxBluesKaj: done15:16
fidelaraxis: you could do similar things with a pair of virtual machines - just as alternative idea15:17
blackshirtaraxis, it doesn't a matter ...15:17
jerrrysaraxis, i use an old server for my desktop machine, noiesy but i like it.  whats the make of yours?15:17
esingblackshirt thanks15:17
araxisfidel: well thats why im here! I really dont know what the best approach is, but i have 2 fully working servers with acceptable hardware, so im trying to figure out my options15:18
__mike__araxis, Have a google for "ubuntu cluster", or have a read of https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Clustering15:18
N03LWhat other channels can I join besides ubuntu?15:18
N03LAre IRC like weechat only exclusive to  help forums?15:18
araxisjerrys: believe it or not, the systems are custom built and the cases are called "red wings"15:18
N03LOr can I sing into a social forum?15:18
blackshirtaraxis, you could make some clustering or load balancing15:18
BluesKajgaelfx, then at the bottom , add this line:  options snd_hda_intel index=015:18
araxisjerrrys: they are pentium 3 xeons i think, with raid scsi drives and 2gb ram15:19
gaelfxBluesKaj: haha, I was just gonna ask if that's what I should do :P15:19
ThinkT510N03L: /join ##linux if you want more broader linux based help15:19
araxisjerrrys: and each system is dual cpu15:19
blackshirtaraxis, you can maximize your server with linux15:19
fidelaraxis: well if its just about playing with tech AND no need to havethose servicesrunning all day long i would always go the vmway on my desktop. saves energy and isnt that different on the other hand ;)15:19
BluesKajgaelfx, save the file , then reboot15:19
ThinkT510N03L: this channel is only focused on ubuntu support15:19
blackshirtEspecially with full text mode,15:19
gaelfxBluesKaj: force-reloading alsa again won't fix it?15:20
araxisblackshirt: clustering is the key, got it15:20
N03LThinkT510: Makes sense. Thanks man.15:20
BluesKajgaelfx, you can try , but i think whatever you set in pavucontrol is over riding the alsa.conf settings atm15:20
araxisfidel: do you have a link i could look at? how would i do this for 2 rigs?15:20
gaelfxBluesKaj: actually, I just tried, and it did work!15:21
BluesKajgaelfx, ok15:21
gaelfxBluesKaj: thanks heaps, that was truly a wonderful session15:21
BluesKajyou have audio then , gaelfx? ..a bit surprising actaully , a reboot is usually required15:22
jerrrysaraxis, sounds usable, i just load the ubuntu desktop and play with it for a while.  got a video card?15:22
araxisjerrrys: indeed i do :)15:23
blackshirtaraxis, maybe better for server edition on it15:23
fidelaraxis: installing a virtual machine software on your desktop, start that vm-software and define 2 virtual hosts/machines. install any os you want in those vms - set the network up for all vm's and there you go. virtualbox or vmware are known vm-solutions. no need for having extra hardware powered up 24x715:23
fidelat the end its about what & how you want to play ... both virtual or real machines might do the job depending what you need/want. wasjust trying to point that out araxis15:24
araxisblackshirt: i currently only have 1 server running and it has server edition installed on it, 12.04. so far all ive done is setup ssh so i can use the command line from my desktop15:25
araxisjerrrys: my house is turning in to a sauna15:25
blackshirtaraxis, you making a greats step on learning15:26
gaelfxBluesKaj: yeah, it's definitely working, now I just need to voodoo some media key bindings15:26
araxisfidel: i see what you're saying, that sounds pretty cool actually. i have this long term vision of hosting my own mud on these servers and perhaps several other muds. or anything really, but that's a long way out15:27
BluesKajgaelfx, ok cool15:27
jerrrysaraxis, oh yes, for about the heat.  what are they, 5u's?15:27
araxisfidel: ive always wanted to host stuff because its fun, no other reason really15:27

araxisjerrrys: but when i started them up and they had windows 2003 server installed, they ran really smooth and quickly. im guessing i didnt give the dual cpu thing enough credit, or maybe its the scsi drives15:31

gsteinertSpamicles: judging by the narrow focus of your question, you'll be lucky to get an answer straight away. in this, I think forums may be your friend. a forum post is likely to be viewed far more over a longer time, you have a better chance of finding someone with the same problem18:06
Spamiclesgsteinert, is that the ubuntu launchpad?18:07
gsteinertlaunchpad is a bug repoting tool, but could work for you.18:08
Spamiclesgsteinert, so just google ubuntu support forum? =]18:08
gsteinerti think that's your best bet... and file a bug report too, especially if you can narrow down what is causing the problem at all. a bug report is more likely to be seen by the right people if it is filed correctly.18:09

karamel4e_gsteinert, sorry, my mistake for the gddrescue I wrote, thanks, I will take a look at it18:32
gsteinertkaramel4e_: i did miss that difference... the manpage should confirm it for you, run `man gddrescue`. and usually when providing a device as an output any data already on it will be destroyed18:32

mafiaboyon installing a package i get this "http://pastebin.com/76Eu5QfA"18:35
gsteinertkaramel4e_: you'll have to check, but it may be possible to write to just one partition (specify /dev/sda1 instead of /dev/sda for example). but that is just a guess. i'd check the man pages fro confirmation before trying it18:35
