imadamHello I'm a bit of a noob. I'm learning python at the moment. Does anybody know how to load up a python script in terminal or where I can find a good tut? Thanks!00:03
BasicKwtoo it may use shockwave or java00:04
blackshirtimadam, you can load it with python /path/to/python/script00:04
michealpwYou can just use sudo Xorg -configure :1 to hash-out an xorg.conf.new in your home directory ;)00:04
michealpwIt'll probe your hardware00:04
michealpwAnd spit out the xorg.conf.new. Then just open it with Kate or Gedit and you're golden00:04
zykotick9michealpw: +1 "sudo X -configure :1"00:05
domtronzykotick9: that assumes it's installed, I haven't even gotten that far :P. thanks for the help :)00:05
imadamblackshirt: Wow thats awesome. Thanks for your help.00:05
michealpwimadam: Well, I think you'd use: python script.py00:05
blackshirtimadam, not a problems...00:06
drupinnow what i do?00:06
michealpwWhere script.py is a qualified location, like /usr/www/script.py00:06
michealpwI'm slow :(00:06
morganhow can I determine what is causing my system to hang for 1-2 seconds every 10-15 minutes?00:06

KxtwoBasic, is there a way to find out which plugin I need?  firefox is usually good about finding it but is not doing it this time00:07
michealpwmorgan: Try (From a terminal) top00:07
blackshirtimadam, where you place your python script?00:07
z1gg3hI have a sneaking suspicion I have a major problem with my wireless adaptor.00:07
imadamblackshirt its in the desktop.00:07
KxtwoBasic, I have java 6 and 700:07
zykotick9michealpw: fyi, have you tried htop?  it's top but cooler - not something to recommend, as it isn't installed by default.00:07
=== TaiChi is now known as bmw
BasicNo because it linux firefox wont find the pulins for you00:08
blackshirtusually with this should work .. python ~/Desktop/script.py00:08
michealpwimadam: maybe you need to give the script execute permissions? Try ls -l ~/Desktop and see if your script has the x attributes?00:08
ActionParsnipdrupin: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1212042/plain/   should do it, you'll be wrestling that file til you get a good display00:08

michealpwCheck out Ruby!00:11
ActionParsnipdrupin: gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf     add the text there, save the new file and close gedit, then reboot00:12
blackshirtz1gg3h, i have no play with it before, but you should ensure your wifi driver loaded by kernel00:12
drupinok ActionParsnip00:12
z1gg3hblackshirt, Aye, well there's A driver that's been loaded into the Kernel, I'm assuming tis the wrong one though. Trying to track down the right one, with a internet connection that's as stable as British job market has been challenging.00:13

michealpwDid you notice anything spectacular?00:17
morganno, just sound stutters for 2 seconds~00:17
ActionParsnipdrupin: yes00:19
morganwhen woopsie opens up that means some error is happening right ?00:19
michealpwWell I'm no expert, but I think it's a tumor.00:19
zykotick9morgan: google chrome or chromium?00:19
morganzykotick9,  google chrome00:19
zykotick9michealpw: "it's not a tumor" ;)00:19
michealpwI think GNOME and KDE should get together00:21
zykotick9michealpw: both are bloat-city IMO00:21
michealpwLOL touche00:21
michealpwThey both constantly change so much it makes me want to punch puppies00:21
ActionParsnipmichealpw: then use XFCE or LXDE, they have changed very little00:22

michealpwI'm not cool.00:22
ActionParsnipmichealpw: how do you mean?00:22
Basicmichealpw , if you like kde effects on gnome their are plugins for compiz00:22
morganhmmm yeah, seems like it's an issue with google chrome ?00:23
michealpwNo no Basic, I meant the developers/projects :P00:23
michealpwI blame Google Chrome, morgan.00:23
michealpwLOL it's the easy way out00:23
michealpwHonestly I don't know what it is, morgan. Perhaps it is Chrome, perhaps not. Could be something innocent like system updates?00:24
vadi2I'm having difficulty getting photos off galaxy s2 - the ones stored on the phones internal card are not seen by ubuntu, only the top level folders are - and there is nothing inside them as it lists. Any ideas?00:25
michealpwIunno I guess the system updates wouldn't cause it to be sluggish though? LOL00:25
michealpwI'm only guessing, don't mind me :)00:25
Basicmogan, use chromuim because google chrome is not built for linux as well as chromuim00:25
morgangonna keep chrome closed and play music through rythombox and see if it happens00:25
ActionParsnipBasic: Chrome is based on Chromium....00:25
michealpwYep, try some testing. See if you can't isolate the problem better ;)00:25
zykotick9Basic: +1 mostly.  ActionParsnip ftw ;)00:25
michealpwDoesn't Chromium have Googleness in it, though?00:26
Basici get less errors with chromuim than chrome00:26
zykotick9michealpw: YES!  chome is with spying features ;)00:26
michealpwGoogle has submited upstream updates?00:26
michealpwI thought so00:27
zykotick9michealpw: sorry, NO.  chromium is open source...00:27
michealpwBut the Google guys submit changes to Chromium no?00:27

Kxtwook heres a question, I just tried to update to java 7 using apt get.  I get the message: openjdk-7-jre is already the newest version.  However when I do a java -version I get: openjdk-7-jre is already the newest version. what is that all about?00:31
ikoniaKxtwo: why is that surprising, it's at it's current version00:32
zykotick9Kxtwo: i guarantee with you run "java -version" it doesn't say "openjdk-7-jre is already the newest version" that's apt-cache/apt-get00:32
SparksITalright...I installed 12.04 64 LTS, I have 1 HDD, and 1 SDD, the os is installed on the SDD, however it is not detecting the HDD, it detected on install as it gave me the option to install on it.00:32

ikoniaKxtwo: apt-get installs a package, you can have more than 1 java version installed00:34
ikoniaKxtwo: do a which java and follow the symlinks through00:34
ubottuTo just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.00:34

zykotick9ActionParsnip: oracle doesn't want java distrubuted by gnu/linux distros (period).  so IMO we shouldn't use oracle-java, or java in general.00:46
tsimpsoninfidel: no, the apport commands are more low-level, the ubuntu-bug tool is a command-line client for it to automatically file bug reports00:46

kxtwoid really like to find some eclipse/java people who coudl help me, but the #eclipse is super slow.01:14
michealpwWell, if it works I guess that's what matters. If you want to try and refine it more (So it's embedded in Firefox) later checkout mozplugger ;)01:14

zykotick9Basic: shut-up.  what's wrong with 40!    jokin'01:31
michealpwdrupini: Also, in your "Screen" section you've got an option I'm not familiar with set, called "metamodes"01:32
ikoniamichealpw: the model doesn't matter, it's an identifier only01:32
ikoniamichealpw: the issue is that your using a.) terrible drivers in "VIA" b.) nvidia' "twinview" options with those, VIA drivers01:32
michealpwdrupin: Use sudo Xorg -configure :1 to spit out a basic xorg.conf that you can work from. It will probe your hardware and set proper values for your driver etc.01:33
zykotick9michealpw: fyi "metamodes" has been a xorg.conf option forever.  just saying.01:33

dewwor mtr03:35
ActionParsnipDiazo: are you using wired or wireless?03:35
DiazoI'm using a wireless connection with Wicd installed.03:35
DiazoIt just happened about four days ago.03:35
DiazoEverything else worked flawlessly.03:35
ActionParsnipDiazo: do you have a lot of wireless networks on the same channel in your area?03:36
zykotick9Diazo: did you have a kernel, or wireless related, update for days ago?03:36
DiazoI can be on YouTube and the video just doesn't seem to finish unless I move the cursor forward.03:36
DiazoActionParsnip, Kinda like multiple users being on the same router?03:37
zykotick9Diazo: flash is a poor example of audio/video troubles?03:37
zykotick9Diazo: flash is a poor example or network troubles.03:37
ActionParsnipDiazo: no, when you scan for networks, are there lots using the same channel number>?03:37
Diazozykotick9, Nope, no kernel update and I remember having a Linux Network Firmware driver about a week or two ago. But doubt that affected it.03:37
DiazoLemme check ActionParsnip.03:38
DiazoActionParsnip, There's a lot of channels using 9, 11 and 6 but I'm on channel 3 and it's the only channel that I have no other networks.03:39
ActionParsnipDiazo: also disable ipv6 if you don't use it. You can do this with the boot option: ipv6.disable=103:39
ActionParsnipDiazo: that's cool, different channel is good :)03:39
zykotick9ActionParsnip: while wicd is still a genuine ubuntu package, it's use is closing in on very non-stadard ubuntu-fare.03:39
Diazozykotick9, Indeed but when I also try to downloading some stuff I get about 1Mbps instead of the 3.2Mbps I normally get.03:39
ActionParsnipzykotick9: how do you mean?03:40
Diazozykotick9, The default network-manager is highly unstable and continuously disconnects me from the Internet.03:40
zykotick9Diazo: i actually use wicd on my netbook, i'm NOT bad mouthing it!03:40
DiazoI had to switch to using Wicd to make it stable.03:40
ActionParsnipDiazo: what speed does:  sudo lshw -C network    say you are connected at?03:40
zykotick9Diazo: i don't use "N-M" anywhere03:40
DiazoWhat's N-M?03:40
DiazoYes network-manager.03:40
zykotick9Diazo: network-manager03:40

SteveThingdoes anyone know of a guide to configure NTP authentication between ubuntu and cisco routers/switches?03:41
ikoniaSteveThing: should just be flat config files03:41
ikoniaSteveThing: it depends on the auth method the cisco devices are using03:41
SteveThingikonia: md503:42
zykotick9Diazo: fyi though, wicd is basically considered "deprecated" by ubuntu's upstream, debian.03:42
ActionParsnipDiazo: you can do it with the boot option I gave03:42
DiazoHmm, I must of missed that.03:42
Diazozykotick9, As long as it works right. :P03:42
ikoniaSteveThing: md5 isn't an authentaction method03:42
ActionParsnipDiazo: also run:  cd $HOME; wget https://dl.dropbox.com/u/8850924/sysctl; echo ./sysctl | sudo tee -a /etc/sysctl.conf; sudo sysctl -p; rm ./sysctl03:42
zykotick9ActionParsnip: lol, you remove what you actually changed if you run your command (not uber-cool)... :)03:43
DiazoI'm using the sudo lshw -C network command.03:44
zykotick9ActionParsnip: AND i'd use ~ instead of $HOME, but that's just me ;)03:44
DiazoOne thing I haven't tried was to power cycle the router and cable modem.03:45
jmsticki would of done that first Diazo03:45
ActionParsnipzykotick9: same difference :)03:45
ActionParsnipzykotick9: $HOME == /home/$USER ==~03:45
Diazojmstick, I know just didn't try it cause everybody was using a computer at the time.03:46
ActionParsnipDiazo: sorry, change the echo to cat03:46
zykotick9ActionParsnip: ~ = 1 key stroke, $HOME = 5 key strokes.  a good admin is a lazy admin ;)03:46
SteveThingikonia: I'm pretty sure Cisco devices use MD5 as the authentication method...03:46
ActionParsnipzykotick9: makes sense03:46
DiazoActionParsnip, No problem.03:46
jmstickDiazo is it slow like that on all pcs in your house or maybe could just be the flash plugin03:46
ikoniaSteveThing: that's an encyption cipher, not an authentication method03:47
Diazojmstick, Don't know haven't asked anybody else yet I mean I get about 1Mbps when I'm on a site when I download but sometimes other things other than flash just seem to lag.03:47
SteveThingok, w/e... I'm just trying to set up authenticated NTP between my ubuntu server and my cisco lab03:47
DiazoEven when I'm gaming on the PS3. It's probably just the router and modem at fault.03:47
ikoniaSteveThing: it's not "what ever" you need to know the authentication method03:48
jmstickyea i bet it03:48
jmstickive had that same problem03:48
ikoniaSteveThing: it's pretty important, as then you can tell / setup the authentication client03:48
jmstickit was not the modem03:48
DiazoAlright y'all I'm going to try and power cycle it thanks for the information I appreciate the help though. :)03:48
jmstickbut the router03:48
ActionParsnipDiazo: make sure the rate of the interface is set right, it may be set at 1Mbps03:48
DiazoIndeed, packet loss.03:48
DiazoActionParsnip, I gotcha.03:48
jmsticki had to reset the thing to default settings03:48
jmstickmine was a linksys03:48
DiazoBy the way.03:49
jmstickdoes it alot03:49
DiazoBefore I leave.03:49
DiazoOne last question.03:49
ShirakawasunaDoes e2fsck check for possibly truncated files (and can it log the results somewhere)? I accidentally filled up my filesystem while doing backups and want to restore any truncated files from another set of backups.03:49
DiazoWhen I installed Wicd and removed network-manager and try to install programs in Software Center the button is grayed out any reason for that? It seems the only way to install programs from Software Center is reinstalling network-manager. Or installing from a terminal.03:49
ikoniaShirakawasuna: it checks for file system integrity, not individual files03:49
SteveThingikonia: lety me double check cisco.com...03:50
Shirakawasunaikonia: I remember, at some point, seeing it report individual files being truncated when this happened to me loooong ago (when KDE's soprano went crazy and got HUGE)03:50
ikoniaShirakawasuna: if the truncating of the file provides an inconsistency, it will report them03:51
Shirakawasunaikonia: where does it report them?03:51
ikoniaon screen03:51
ikoniawhen you run fsck03:51
zykotick9Diazo: too bad i can't suggest you point /etc/apt/apt.conf to your apt-cacher (or apt-cacher-ng) server.  'cause i assume you don't have one (or you wouldn't be asking).  sorry i have no idea on you USC issue, good luck.03:52
Diazozykotick9, No problem seems a mystery to me.03:52
Shirakawasunaikonia: I'd prefer a log if possible, since this is on the / partition - I'd ideally like to force a check on reboot, then reboot and have it log results to a file03:52
DiazoSee y'all later.03:52
DiazoThanks again.03:52
ikoniaShirakawasuna: man fsck03:52
edgyhi, how can I list the files in an unistalled package?03:53
Shirakawasunaikonia: I did before asking any questions...03:53
ikoniaShirakawasuna: you already know the answer then03:53
ikoniaShirakawasuna: ok, so there is no "log" option03:53
ShirakawasunaI know that there isn't one that's documented in the man page03:54
Shirakawasunahence I'm asking in here to see if anyone knows a method03:54
ikoniaShirakawasuna: then there isn't an option03:54
NikozzzzzzInfuziie hi pm me03:54
ikoniaShirakawasuna: you could wrap it with logsave or tee03:54
Shirakawasunathere's always an option if you look hard enough. I could manually make e2fsck run during boot with a custom service script and have it pipe all output to a file03:55
zykotick9edgy: is in you can't run "dpkg -S package" 'cause you've already uninstalled it?  there is a program that can do that!  but i forget it's name :(  sorry.03:55

TooOldSchoolGreetings and blessings everyone! I need assistance if one doesn't mind, with my nvidia geforce fx 5500 and getting the proper resolutions for my Compaq 7550 monitor, I can't get resolution better than 1024x76804:55
_Trulloyou can edit resolutions manually04:56
TooOldSchoolI am currently running 11.10, considering the update to 12.04 as well.04:56

Nautilusstruggling to make sense of the way partitions and perms work.  In 10.04 I go to "Computer" in the GUI and there's all my unmounted partitions.  Try to mount them, error.  OK so I mount them from CLI.  They then disappear from Computer.  Where do I find them?04:59
hpSituationsokel: the modem is a ralink rt539005:00

dj_segfaultHi.  I'm trying to install 12.04 on a box that's running Windows fine, but it's got an NVidia 550 ti card, which seems to not work well with Ubuntu (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-nouveau/+bug/969121?comments=all).  When I boot off a USB stick I made, I just see a cursor in the upper left corner.  Since I never get any kind of prompt, is there any hope of getting this card working?05:16

pishguycfhowlett: i'm upgrade system and now i can't have high resulation05:49
ikoniaso why are you messing with grub ?05:49
cfhowlettpishguy: the system isn't booted at grub therefore no intel vga configuration through ubuntu is going to display.05:50

cfhowlettpishguy: it's a grub issue, not an ubuntu issue.  I don't know.05:51
ikoniaOldSchool: why are you posting that ?05:54
OldSchoolI think I got my resolution fixed using the 173-updates nvidia driver for my geforce fx 550005:54
OldSchoolBut I dont know if the 3d acceleration is working.05:54
ikonialook in the xorg log05:54
OldSchoolwhat about nvidia-settings? and what am I looking for in xorg log specifically? I dont understand05:55
ikoniaOldSchool: nvidia-settings is for building an xorg.conf05:55
OldSchoolIf my questions would be too bothersome I will scour duckduckgo and the ubuntu.com forums  for what info I can find, as my intentions are not to be obtrusive or intrusive to anyone.05:56
ikoniait's a reasonable question05:56
ikoniathe xorg you should see it loading modules such as DRI05:57
OldSchoolIn order to get my resolution working I had to select something about x being on a seperate screen then write it to the xorg conf05:57
ikoniaOldSchool:  you ned to be more specific than "something"05:57
OldSchoolAnd rebooted as when I tried the key combo of right alt + print screen + k, it displayed erroneous results.05:57
dj_segfaultI think what OldSchool is talking about is running two different X sessions, one for each monitor.  I do that too05:58
=== AFKMunks is now known as chamunks
ActionParsnipOldSchool: gotta love the duck :)06:01
OldSchoolthis is what i'm referencing06:02
ikoniaOldSchool: I see no settings in thre06:03
OldSchoolwhen i goto it, it said "disabled" and in order for my resolution to be anything above 1024x768 i had to select "Seperate X Screen" from the drop down menu, and write the configuration and restart x06:03
OldSchoolJust to get resolution to the maximum IE 1600x1200 in my compaq 7550's case06:03
ikoniaOldSchool: I'm sorry, I don't understand what you are saying06:03
OldSchoolI installed the additional drivers for the nvidia geforce fx 5500 in this case it was the 173-updates driver06:04
OldSchoolTrying to fully enable my GPU card06:04
ikoniathat part I understand06:04
OldSchoolThe resolution in displays and detected would not go above 1024x768, so I installed the 173-updates from additional drivers application, still nothing06:05
OldSchoolso I ran NVIDIA X Server Settings application06:05
ikoniayes, you need to do that to generate an X11 xorg.conf that's valid06:05
OldSchoolAnd got those results that I linked you to, that it said "disabled" so what I did, was click the drop down list where it said "Disabled" and changed it to "Seperate X Server Screen" or something of the like, then write configuration, attempted to restart X using right alt + print scn + k06:06
OldSchooland it gartbled, so i then restarted the computer and achieved the 1600x1200 resolution06:07
ikoniaare you using the CRT connection on your machine ?06:07
PotterHej, can you guys help me with a little problem? i've recently installed Ubuntu on my HP, but now i can't find the files that were on the PC before?06:07
ikoniaPotter: did you delete the partitions or format the file systems06:08
OldSchooland am now concerned with the status of 2d/3d acceleration as things still seem a tad laggy, even though this system only is running 1.5GB RAM on an old dell dimension lol06:08
OldSchoolYes, VGA06:08
ikoniawhy "lol" ?06:08

OldSchoolI am in the process of running the 12.04 LTS distrobution update as we speak06:09
ikoniaOldSchool: opengl and glx information are the two options that will enable your 3D settings06:09
OldSchoolwondering if i should have went with LXDE distro :)06:09
ikoniayou can verify this in the xorg log06:09
ikoniaOldSchool: that wouldn't change your graphics card06:09

PotterIkonia: I made 2 partitions, put my files at the partition that didn't have Windows, and then installed rewrote Windows with Ubuntu06:11
ActionParsnipOldSchool: thats fine, or install lubuntu-desktop06:13

PotterI have tried, it should be std5, but it brings up an error letting me know that it can't wind the partition...06:14
ix_I don't quite understand how the LTS works and why some parts are not LTS, like Lubuntu06:14
ikoniaPotter: please tell me the exact problem instead of using words like "wind the partition" as that means nothing06:15
ActionParsnipix_: LTS gives longer support06:15
ix_so what happens, does lxde lose support in Ubuntu after a while or what?06:15
ikoniaI don't know what std5 is06:15
ikoniaso please tell me the exact issue06:15
PotterThats the partition where my files are on.06:15
ikoniaix_: it's not officially supported now06:15

blackcat73Hi, after I've installed indicator-network on my ubuntu 12.04 LTS I lost eth0 configuration09:27
blackcat73and when I use network manager it gives me an error message saying network system not supported or something like that09:27
johnmEbolla: there are a ton of online guides on samba (which is presumably what you're using), but you have local user accounts on your box which will be used (using smbpasswd) to map them to a samba user, and from there you can configure your shgare in smb.conf to match the samba users you've defined. You can allow full write guest access if you choose, i'd suggest not.09:28

johnmremember, smb users map to linux users, and permissions are then handled in linux (as per normal)09:34

johnmEbolla: ie: I map a local linux user "ebolla" to samba user "ebolla" and then I can can chown -R ebolla some/dir/under/share as per normal09:36
johnmEbolla: if you need more than owner/group, look at file system acls (setfacl/getfacl)09:36
johnmif it's still doing something off, then chances are your samba share configuration is wrong (it can override permissions)09:36

tomreynoh the wireless agent10:04
MonkeyDust!info crda10:05
ubottucrda (source: crda): wireless Central Regulatory Domain Agent. In component main, is optional. Version 1.1.2-1ubuntu1 (precise), package size 14 kB, installed size 95 kB (Only available for linux-any)10:05
tomreynthanks :)10:05
tomreynquote form http://wireless.kernel.org/en/developers/Regulatory/CRDA : CRDA acts as the udev helper for communication between the kernel and userspace for regulatory compliance. It relies on nl80211 for communication. CRDA is intended to be run only through udev communication from the kernel. The user should never have to run it manually except if debugging udev issues.10:06

tomreynDJ_Danni: the issue seems to be that you have leftover apparmor profiles which were not removed in an upgrade. make a backup of your databases and configuration, then purge, then install mysql-server10:24
DJ_Dannii already have mysql-server installed10:25
cousin_luigiHow do I change the shortcut actions for my new multimedia keyboard?10:26
tomreynDJ_Danni: i'm aware, the idea is that during the removal you will ensure that the legacy apparmor profiles are removed, so that after reinstallation, mysqld should come up fine.10:26
DJ_DanniHow do i completly remove the mysql?10:27
ikoniaDJ_Danni: open the package manager, select mysql, click purge/remove10:28
DJ_Dannido you mean Ubuntu Software?10:28
tomreynDJ_Danni: you may also start a temrinal windows and type this (after you made backups of your database and mysql server configuration): sudo apt-get purge mysql-server10:31

arvin_Hi guys11:04
arvin_I tried following the guide at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AsusZenbookPrime#Touchpad11:04
arvin_Alternative 2, to fix my touchpad for my zenbook. Adding the ppa there made ubuntu try to install kernel 3.5.x which can't finish.11:05
arvin_Now everytime I try to use apt-get it asks me to run "dpkg --configure -a" to fix the issue, but it breaks at the same point.11:05
arvin_Could anyone give me some pointers on how to fix this manually? I'd rather revert back to 3.2 and remove the ppa.11:06
MonkeyDustarvin_  try sudo apt-get -f install11:06
arvin_Alright, it's running... let's see how it goes.11:06
MonkeyDustarvin_  a ppa is always something you use at your own risk11:06
arvin_Nope, keep getting Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.5.0-13-generic (x86_64) Consult /var/lib/dkms/asus-wmi/999.01/build/make.log for more information.11:07

N03LHey guys11:09
N03LHow do you change the hostname/system on ubuntu?11:10
WarOfTheNerdarvin_, don't change the kernel from 3.2 if you don't need extra hardware support11:10
WarOfTheNerdarvin_, 3.2 gets extra mainline love, it's an LTS kernel upstream as well as in Ubuntu11:10
N03LLike, when you're on your terminal, your name would appear followed by @ubuntu11:10
N03LHow do I change the name?11:10
N03LThe option to title change via terminal doesn't work.11:10
ugly_duck/etc/hostname ?11:10
arvin_That's why I added the ppa, according to the guide at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AsusZenbookPrime#Touchpad it will fix the semi working touchpad.11:10
ugly_duckhostname -b hostname11:10
WarOfTheNerdN03L, here's a hint:11:11
WarOfTheNerdroot@VG244AA-ABU-p6235uk:~# cat /etc/hostname11:11
WarOfTheNerd(Quite simply, change /etc/hostname and restart)11:11
WarOfTheNerdDon't change it while the OS is running as it crashes some apps11:11
arvin_Well right now I'm trying to get back to 3.2, but everytime I do anything with dpkg or apt-get it starts building the module and fails, and crashes, locking apt.11:12
WarOfTheNerdas in edit /etc/hostname and restart11:12
WarOfTheNerd(don't use hostname command)11:12
MyrttiWarOfTheNerd: /etc/hosts should be changed too.11:12
WarOfTheNerdMyrtti, true.  (Some apps crash if it isn't in there as; *cough* League of Legends on Wine *cough*)11:13
arvin_Let me put this in more general terms. If installing a package using apt-get fails, and dkpg --configure -a or apt-get install -f gets to the same problem. Is it possible to tell ubuntu to stop trying to install that package?11:14
blackshirtarvin_ what packages causes the problems?11:14
MonkeyDustarvin_  remove the ppa11:14
arvin_I removed the ppa, but apt-get update tells me to do dpkg --configure -a, which gets me back to the same problem. :(11:15
blackshirtarvin_, your apt system on unconsistent state when you say like them11:15
arvin_blackshirt: it's kernel 3.5 that comes with xorg-edgers.11:15
ubottuTo disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html11:15

Johnhello :]12:28
JohnI have a problem compiling a program - in fact many many people have a problem compiling a program, and at present the solution is 'don't use Ubuntu'12:28
knxvilleWhat is the problem John?12:29
JohnI've tried every which way to work around, or fix this, but quite frankly i'm no expert in compiling C. I can't code in C so all these CFLAGS and whatnot go over my head.12:29
JohnI'll pastebin the output if you like knxville, and I would be deeply greatful12:30
ikoniaJohn: no, they don't12:30
gordonjcpJohn: are we supposed to guess what you're trying to do?12:30
Johngordonjcp:  i'm getting to it12:30
ikoniaJohn: the answer is not "don't use ubuntu" and no-one says that, please don't make things up12:30
knxvilleWhat error does it give John? It makes it a little easier for people to solve ur problem.. and what are you trying to compile?12:30
gordonjcpJohn: what are you compiling, and what's the error?12:30
knxvillegordonjcp: first!! ;)12:30
jribJohn: ask on ONE line and pastebin logs/errors in a pastebin that you include in your question12:31
JohnI'm compiling a program called mfold-utils, which can be found here: http://mfold.rna.albany.edu/?q=mfold/download-mfold12:31
tobias__Hello pinguins!12:31
gordonjcpknxville: :-)12:31
tobias__I'm just poping in to ask a quick question.. How do I change my primary monitor, because right now it's my TV..12:31
JohnI'm not compiling mfold, just the utils package (which makes a program called sir_graph)12:32
Johnsir_graph is really really useful, but whilst I could get it to work on Gentoo/MacOS/RedHat, i've failed to have any luck on Ubuntu12:32
ikoniaJohn: how about give us the error12:33
ikoniaJohn: use a pastebin12:33
N03LGoodness me, it's still not working.12:33

knxvilletobias__: im not sure if ati got software for your gfx card, but nvidia does.. I can change the primary monitor through that..12:36
gordonjcpJohn: yes12:36
jribN03L: so you want to change "robert"?12:37
JohnThe guy who runs it (zukerm) isn't particularly useful it has to be said12:37
tobias__I only use my TV in windows, so I could shut the HDMI down if possible so it wont recognize my TV12:37
jribN03L: that's your username usually12:37
gordonjcpJohn: I was just about to say, if you pop the error you get into Google it returns exactly *one* result12:37
knxvilletobias__: alternatively, you could delete the xorg.conf file while the tv is detached.. it would create a default xorg.conf12:37
gordonjcpJohn: and that's it12:37
N03Ljrib: How do I change it?12:37
ikoniaJohn: that thread shows some pretty outside ubuntu dependency meeting12:37
jribN03L: try #weechat12:37
dn4I formatted my usb stick and it won't let me drop files on there and it says read only12:37

Johnikonia:  oh, i might have pasted the wrong one... I thought it had like 3 people complaining that it wouldn't work on Unbt12:38
jribJohn: doesn't that site also provide binaries for mfold_utils?12:38
ikoniaJohn: some guys complaining about it not running on ubuntu 10.1012:39

tobias__knxville: I don't have a xorg.conf..12:40

gordonjcpJohn: I looked at the last couple of lines of error output and noticed that it said something like "gcc -lm name-of-source.c"12:44
dn4any reason why ubuntu only allows read only for usb storage devices; and not read and write ?12:44
gordonjcpJohn: I've run into this before12:44

mbeierlJohn, how are you accessing the machine?  Where is your X display client running?15:55
Johnmbeierl:  erm, i'm not really using X15:55
JohnI'm just trying to use freeglut from the command line15:55
Johnactually, i'm just trying to use glut from the command line, but it seems that freeglut was the only avalible package in apt-get15:55
bebojhi , does anyone use this Sierra Wireless, Inc. Gobi 2000 Wireless Modem (QDL mode)?15:55
mbeierlJohn, how did you get to the command line?  You said this is an Amazon machine, right?15:55
Johnmbeierl:  yeah :]15:56
mbeierlJohn, and the client machine - is it Windows, Mac or Linux?15:56
mbeierlJohn, you could try ssh -X to forward X display back to the client machine15:56
Johnwait wait wait15:56
JohnSo there's this program, called sir_graph - it takes data and draws graphs15:56
JohnIt needs GLUT to run, so i apt-get install freeglut3, and it stops giving me errors15:57
mbeierlJohn, ok.15:57
JohnI then point it at some data, and it tells me: freeglut (sir_graph): failed to open display ''15:57
JohnChecking on a Gentoo machine, (which probably doesn't use freeglut) i see display is also set to ''15:58
Johnand it doesn't have this problem15:58
JohnI have no idea what freeglut is or why i need it btw15:59
mbeierlJohn, so it sounds like it is wanting to display something back to you.  I don't know the program or its underlying libraries, so I don't know why that would be15:59
morfeusavio: TheLordOfTime http://imagebin.org/22884715:59
TheLordOfTimemorfeu, wrong.16:00

aackleyHi all16:01
mbeierlJohn, sorry - I got that much, but what I meant is I, like you, don't know what it is wanting to do.  If you do "ssh -X user@amazonpc" and then once logged in, execute "xterm" what happens?16:01
Johnwhat does -X do?16:02
JohnI'm just doing ssh user@amazonpc16:02
Johnwith the -i file16:02
mbeierlJohn, it tunnels the X display over ssh.  It will create a pseudo X server for you16:02
mbeierlJohn, it /might/ just be enough to trick the library into running16:02
Johnwell i'm not doing that, i'm just using the command lone16:02

mbeierlJohn, but before that, I just wanted to see if the "xterm" will even show itself locally on the mac using ssh -X16:03
mbeierlJohn, perfect.  Go ahead and exit out of it, then try your sir_graph again.16:04
Johnwoah, weird16:04

JohnX11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication.16:04
Johnfreeglut (sir_graph): failed to open display 'localhost:10.0'16:04
mbeierlJohn, did you need to "su" or "sudo" to run it?16:04
mbeierlor change users?16:05
Johni ran it as root16:05
Johni sudo su'd16:05
Calinousudo su is useless today16:05
JohnI don't need to sudo-prefix everything16:05
Johnbut yeah i know it's bad -_-;16:05
mbeierlJohn, ok, that is expected then.  You logged in as user, and SSH allows the display to be forwarded for "user" only, not any sub su'd users16:05
PiciYou shouldn't need to run everything with sudo privleges anyway.16:06
mbeierlJohn, have you tried sir_graph as user?  It might not need root permission.  Or perhaps the data or target directory could be set to allow user to write to it16:06

Discordian93I visited a website that chrome supposdedly blocked because it had a virus, but it still managed to play a sound file over and over until I closed my browser, even after the tab with the malicious site was closed. I used wget on the site, analyzed the file with clam and it said it was a malware known as .JS popupper, should I do a reinstall? It's teh first time this has happened to me under linux.17:14
AntiD2Could anyone give me a very quick hand? I'm new to ubuntu server and there is just 1 thing that i'm trying to do, but can't seem to do it..17:15

Discordian93If I have to do a reinstall of ubuntu, not of chrome17:16

=== jacklk is now known as jak9009
Joel_reI would verify it with ping  - try sending various packet sizes18:50
zErTsHi  it's the second time that it happened  http://postimage.org/image/ewfkxywqp/ what dosent mean ?18:51
lauratikajoel_re: i set it to even 550 and no changes, set it higher than 2950 and nothing either...18:51
mbeierlb1gtuna, you're welcome.  I forgot the question/answer though.  Glad it worked whatever it was :)18:51
bekksVarazir: Then shutdown your PXE client, and edit the etc/resolv.conf in the nfs share on your nfs server. Then boot up your PXE client again.18:51
WHAT_UPprocesses killed with kill -9 still have their memory freed, correct?18:52
Varazirbekks: I have this in the file # Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8)18:52
b1gtunambeierl: it was about why I need to sync when I write files to SD card =D18:52
pushproblem in reinstalling mysql18:52
WHAT_UPthe issue with kill -9 is in case the program was leaving stuff on the hard drive or needs to do something before exiting?18:52
mbeierlb1gtuna, Right!18:52
bekksVarazir: Then you are using NetworkManager, dont you?18:52
b1gtunambeierl: So is there a way to make the sync operation work faster? ext4 is supposedly faster than ext3?18:52
lauratikaJoel_re: how can i ping packet sizes??18:53
Varazirbekks: I'm only sshing into the system18:53
TheLordOfTimelauratika, do you mean how do you change ping packet size?18:53
Joel_relauratika: ping -s18:53
lauratikawell sorry everyone i mean how to do it?18:53
mbeierlb1gtuna, the speed of the write to the SD card cannot be changed - it is a hardware limitation.  Buy a higher speed card it the only way to make it faster.  There are filesystems that are supposed to be optimized for SD (wear leveling, etc) but I personally do not see the improvement18:54
erkan^why is unity so slow?18:54
erkan^gnoem 2 was quick18:54
Varazirbekks: far as I know is the NM gui only18:54
erkan^how can that?18:54
bekksVarazir: So you dont have access to the server serving the nfs share?18:54
bekksVarazir: And NM is not GUI only.18:54
mbeierlb1gtuna, for that, ext2 is probably just as good as 3/4 when it comes to writing to SD18:54
b1gtunambeierl: ya i don't see the performance improvement, so that's why I came here to ask. Thanks for the clarification!18:54
Joel_relauratika: you just ping -s 1400 <some server>18:54
* mbeierl feels free to be corrected if I'm wrong18:54
mbeierlb1gtuna, you are welcome.18:55
b1gtunambeierl, how are you so knowledgeable? Just curious18:55
Varazirbekks: yes I have access to the nsf share, if I edit the file on the nsf share. wouldn't it just be overwriten the system boots up again ?18:55
Varazirbekks: ok18:55
greenithi, i need a translation tool, like pootle... is there somethin similar, which is easier to install and handle?^^18:55
mbeierlb1gtuna, I did some reading on the use of filesystems for SD cards a while back.  I have not seen many changes over the years though.18:55
b1gtunambeierl, I see thanks.18:56
mtrd--Hello, i'm trying to install ubuntu 12.04 from a usb stick, i get a (initramfs) prompt when booting on the stick. I can't mount anything, fdisk is not available. I seems to be on the usb stick but i don't know how to proceed to installation. Any idea ?18:56
mbeierlb1gtuna, searching for terms like "best filesystem for sd card linux" type of thing.  Interesting reading, but nothing will replace your own personal experience.18:56
wilee-nileemtrd--, Try another loader after checking the md5sum of the ISO.18:56
lauratikaJoel_re: ok, thanx... now what exactly need to look for?18:57
mbeierlb1gtuna, I can also say that if you are planning to use the card in other systems, nothing beats good old VFAT (the DOS filesystem) for portability.18:57
Joel_relauratika: well try different sizes, between 1000-140018:57
Joel_redoes it work18:57
Joel_reId start with the largest18:57
mtrd--wilee-nilee: another loader ? do you mean, instead of unetbootin ?18:58

TheLordOfTimeVandroiy, nonadmins can't install debs19:12
jribVandroiy: what do you mean by "installed as some user"?  As I said, packages are installed to the system by an admin19:12
subcoolTheLordOfTime, everyting is getting denied19:13
bekksVandroiy: You cant install a .deb for a specific user only. Either install it for all users, or dont install it at all.19:13
TheLordOfTimeVandroiy, it requires superuser or administrator power (sudo) to install software19:13
TheLordOfTimesubcool, even with sudo?19:13
TheLordOfTimesubcool, what "errors"19:13
subcooli havent tried yet- thats why im asking19:13

llutzsubcool: vfat-filesystem? cannot hold characters like ":"19:14
subcoolTheLordOfTime, when i do sudo - i get : cp: cannot create regular file `/media/TOSHIBA EXT/Var/lib/dpkg/info/libdc1394-22:amd64.md5sums': Invalid argumen19:14
jribah, llutz's suggestion is probably more likely19:14

Flexo-BAny help to change an icon in the launcher?19:19
Varazirbekks: if I run sudo  dhclient after the system have booted up it works19:19

subcoolllutz, do i have to sudo that?19:20
trismFlexo-B: find the .desktop file for the launcher (probably in /usr/share/applications/) copy it to ~/.local/share/applications and edit the Icon= lines with the path to your new icon19:20
Varazirbekks: yes, but after I do mount -a everything gose bad19:20
llutzsubcool: what was the "previous error"?19:21
brightsparksHi. How do I rename in the terminal a file like: One Two Three  to a linux file One_Two_Three?19:21
Flexo-Btrism: ok I try...19:21
subcoolllutz, tar: /var/lib/rkhunter/db: Cannot open: Permission denied19:21
subcooltar: /var/lib/rkhunter/tmp: Cannot open: Permission denied19:21
trismFlexo-B: you could likewise create a new icon theme and replace the icon for the given generic icon name with a new icon, but it is a bit more involved19:21
jribbrightsparks: one time or in an automated fashion (like a directory full of such files)?19:21
llutzsubcool: so yes, sudo would help19:21
brightsparksjrib: one time single file19:22
brightsparksjrib: or single folder with files in it19:22
jribbrightsparks: two ways.  Either use quotes ('one two three'), or escape the spaces (one\ two\ three)19:22

brightsparksjrib: thanks v much : )19:24
Flexo-Btrism: rawtherapee19:24
jribbrightsparks: by the way, you can also just use tab to complete the name and your shell should escape the spaces automatically19:24
trismFlexo-B: according to a quick apt-file search it should be /usr/share/applications/rawtherapee.desktop19:25

Emmanuel_ChanelI happened to push [F7] key on Byobu. And the job looks stopping. How can I continue the job?20:04
Pazziexibalba: no not yet,20:04
xibalba1st step is to always install vm tools20:04
Pazziexibalba: this you mean? sudo apt-get install vmfs-tools20:05
xibalbainstall the ones from your vm esxi box20:05
xibalbamount the installed, copy from /cdrom  or /mnt/cdrom, run those tools not the vmfs-tools20:05
Pazziejust mount it?20:05
Pazzielike with windows?20:05
xibalbaPazzie, mount the vmware tools into your vm guest. it's an option in esxi20:06

xibalbaPazzie, the installer is on the esxi box. right click your vm and click 'mount vm tools'20:09
xibalbait'll mount it into your /cdrom or /dev/cdrom20:10

Pazziexibalba: i did that allready, i mean where do i find it in linux (in windows its mounted under the cdrom) and how do i install it?20:10
xibalbaPazzie, not much linux experience i take it? try, mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom, or mount /dev/cdrom /cdrom20:11

Pazziexibalba: that is trough, i am a windows expert, but a complete newbie to ubuntu20:11
ActionParsnipVarazir: yes tahts to define teh addressing, but without the: auto eth0   you will have to manually run: sudo ifup eth0   every boot20:12
Pazziexibalba: i have vmware esx 5.0 running20:12
xibalbaPazzie, try googling "how to mount cdrom in ubuntu". the commands i layed out for you should help20:12

XiRoNIs it possible to create many virtual machines all using 1 IP but assigned to specific ports?20:26
martinrameI want to browse the icons20:27

VarazirPazzie: did you find it ?20:27
fission6TJ-: this looks good20:27
panchiniakcompdoc: ok, thank you. You've quoted tab-10. Do you know about a “Tabuntu” running on Galaxy Tab 7.7?20:27
TJ-XiRoN: That's what a PNAT router does ( Port Address Translation) in a typical home-router20:28
PazzieVarazir: yes the installation was running, but i needed to install make and gcc, wich i did now add restarted the installation20:28
PazzieVarazir: and it is finished now20:28

Varazircool good luck with the rest :)20:29
greenithi, is it possible to easily make a custom image of ubuntu? so, for example, one command and ubuntu packs itself, as it is installed, into an iso?20:29
TJ-XiRoN: No, I meant you could do it the same way if you wanted to... many home-routers run embedded linux with the same packages you'd use on Ubuntu to achieve the same aim20:30
XiRoNTJ- so I install a PNAT system to my node?20:30
TJ-XiRoN: With virtual machines you can even set-up virtual Ethernets with virtual switches ... have one VM as your 'home-router' equivilent that routes to all the other VMs20:30
zauberparacelsusOkay, I just got the latest Humble Indie Bundle, and it gives the option to install software via the Ubuntu Software Center.  When I click the "Download for Ubuntu" button, I'm presented with a dialog that prompts me to open the download link with xdg-open.  When I click, nothing happens, it just opens a chromium window with a blank tab.  How do I get it to install correctly?20:31
TJ-XiRoN: But I think you're asking specifically about a Linode VPS aren't you? Might be best to ask the folks that hang out in #linode on the IRC OFTC network if that's the case20:31
jribzauberparacelsus: probably needs to be firefox20:31
XiRoNI'm not with Linode20:32
jribzauberparacelsus: the default firefox has an addon that opens apt:// URLS (or something like that)20:32
TJ-XiRoN: sorry, my mistake. I saw someone link to a Linode article above, and mistakenly thought it was you :)20:32
XiRoNBut I like the idea of 1 vm being the switch20:32
XiRoNbut is that the only way?20:32
XiRoNWithout using a router that is.20:33

TJ-moes: Not seen what your issue is, but are you familiar with how update-manager works? when you log-in, it is launched because it has a .desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart/ ... if it isn't starting (and therefore notifying you) that is a good place to start looking for reasons why.  "update-notifier" should be running in the background whilst you're logged in.20:42

agrestringereQuestion: how can I ignore updates from a PPA - so it doesn't always pop up with the update manager - but install only select packages from that PPA?20:53
ElixirVitaeIs removing programs from software center same as remove command or purge command?20:53
shmupActionParsnip: precise20:53
c_smithElixirVitae, just apt-get remove, apt-get purge does more than the software center does.20:54
ActionParsnipshmup: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexmurray/indicator-sensors; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install indicator-sensors20:54
TJ-agrestringere: The usual way to control package versions is using "pinning" but that's sometimes impractical for whole repositories20:54
c_smithElixirVitae, apt-get purge removes all traces of the program outside the home folder20:54
ElixirVitaeSo, I need to remove resident files, like config files manually if I were to remove programs from software center20:55
ActionParsnipshmup: bit easier20:55
shmupActionParsnip: can you give me a .. hint.. on how to even come to that conclusion20:55
ElixirVitaeor is there a command doing that, through terminal20:55
shmuplike a site that is useful for searching for repositories20:55
c_smithElixirVitae, correct,20:55
ElixirVitaelike autoremove20:55
shmupi'm no linux guru, work mostly keeps me in a windows environment20:55
ActionParsnipshmup: duckduckgo has a ppa search bang, or you can use: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas20:55
c_smithElixirVitae, I don't believe purge removes dependancies, but it does remove config files, auto-remove doesn't touch config files20:55
drag0niusis there some tool like JDownloader but command line only?20:55
shmupyes thats awesome ActionParsnip!!20:56

TJ-agrestringere: You would pin an entire repo with something like this in "/etc/apt/preferences.d/ppa-name" : "Package: *\nPin: release o=LP-PPA-<ppa-name>\nPin-Priority: 400" (\n is a line-feed)20:59

ahmwodysome one help me please, setuping ubuntu server21:01
seliteTJ-: Yes, first I edit locally then I push it. However, when I push it the same one appears without the differences that I've created.21:02
seliteTJ-: And if I do something like git add source.c and then commit and then push, it says that it got rejected.21:02
TJ-selite: "git push" only pushes what has been committed locally. So that implies you've done "git add ...; git commit ...;" previously21:03

TJ-subcool: Is the free-space the last partition (#4) ? I recall that extended always has to be the last partition otherwise it can cause problems for some operating systems21:53
ActionParsnipsejwal: it won't work21:53
moesTJ-, Prior checked >security updates>recommended updates...daily only notify normal releases...Now shows 10.10 available for upgrade21:53
sejwalActionParsnip: What would be the best way to switch  to 64 bit Ubuntu from my current 32 bit setup? clean install?21:54
TJ-moes: Oh... you're using 10.04 currently then?21:54
subcoolno- i have sda1 - which is my linux, then i had sda2, there is sda3 with windows, then sda4 which is an extended with my swap21:54
moesTJ-, Yes that is correct21:54
nemikhow can i get an app like processing.org to work in full screen with unity? the dock and menu bar are always visible?21:54
ActionParsnipsejwal: you will need to clean install. You can run 32bit app in 64bit OS21:55

nemikActionParsnip: thanks, but the menu bar still shows21:58
nemikActionParsnip: is there any way to do TRUE full screen?21:58
subcoolTJ-, yea21:58
subcoolTJ, juniour fdisk -l comes back with no results21:58
FrozenFireDoes anyone know of screen magnification software for Linux that supports following the *keyboard cursor* as you type?21:58
TJ-subcool: Can't be done... you've got one already at sda4 slot ... you'd need to create an out-of-order logical partition in the existing extended partition21:58
FrozenFireOr, to use a hackish method, a means to cause the mouse cursor to follow the keyboard cursor21:59
subcoolTJ-, what if i were to remove the extended partition and swap?21:59
moesTJ-, The packages for regular updates are in update manager but I have to open by menu to see them..The notification icon no longer shows up in the task bar...21:59

TJ-subcool: Yes, you can do that... annoying I know! gparted ought to help you create an out-of-order logical in the current extended partition, but maybe its not that clever. I'm pretty sure you can do it with fdisk though22:01
moesTJ-, Thanks for the help..will look at bug22:01
subcoolTJ-, so do i format nearly everything?22:02
subcoolTJ-, it shows my swap as locked22:03
subcoolwtf is going on?22:03
TJ-subcool: If you create an -out-of-order logical partition in the extended you don't need to - it'll be the last partition entry in the partition table, but it'll point to the sectors before partition #322:03
mrgtAnyone know any good alternatives to MS Project for Ubuntu?22:04

subcoolTJ this ting is driving me nuts- i havent finaled any of my formats yet- but i delete nearly all the partitions, then created ONE extended partition to be /var - and now it wont let me create any more22:10
TJ-dash: Any clues in the logs? Xorg.0.log, syslog, pm-powersave.log22:10
zykotick9subcool: you can ONLY create 1 "extended partition"22:10

subcoolbut i suppose i have to huh..22:11
ActionParsnipzykotick9: isn't it only possible to have one extended partition?22:11
zykotick9ActionParsnip: yes ;)22:11
TJ-subcool: I said earlier - you can only have ONE extended partition, and it should be after all primary partitions22:11
TJ-subcool: You can create as many logical partitions as you want INSIDE an extended partition22:11
subcoolTHis is what imtrying to do- since this is annoying. I am trying to resizze my /var/ partition, im also trying to create a /home/ partition. and now i have to also recreate my swap22:12
bekksTJ-: Thats not true :)22:12
TJ-bekks: which bit?22:12
bekksTJ-: You can create up to 15 logical partitions inside an extended partition, when using a MSDOS disk label.22:12
TJ-bekks: I was trying not to confuse him by being *too* specific22:13
subcoolim use to doss stuff-22:13
