ring2DJHenjin, have you checked the response? libgcc_s.so.1 must be installed for pthread_cancel to work00:16
DJHenjini have checked it but thats where im stumped00:16
DJHenjini dont know what that means exactly00:18
ring2DJHenjin, i'd check in which package libgcc_s.so.1 is. then make sure, the package is installed. f.e. apt-file search libgcc_s.so.100:18
DJHenjini did the apt-file search but i dont get any results wth00:20
ring2DJHenjin, then you mistyped something00:21
DJHenjinokay yeah now ive got a bunch of results00:21
DJHenjinall the packages it listed have a local path to libgcc_s.so.100:22

sacrebleu chroot?00:54
SolarisBoyyes - its like a sandbox in which the user only has access to that location00:54
sacrebleuis this used in place of rbash?00:54

DominciiHi all01:01
Dominciihaving some problems with Steam on Wine01:01
SolarisBoysacrebleu: you can read over this for guidance - it seems a little outdated - i believe the jailkit thing works01:02
SolarisBoythey also mention why not to use rbash01:02
SolarisBoybrb01:02
SolarisBoyyou can manually do it but its likely better to use some automation tool to do the steps properly01:03
Shazer[2]Hello.01:03
Shazer[2]I'm trying to install Chrome, I downloaded the 64bit .deb,  but I'm not sure what to do next.01:03
ampdDomincii: try PlayOnLinux?01:03
SolarisBoyShazer[2]: sudo dpkg -i <filename>01:04
furryShazer[2], sudo dpkg -i deb.file.here.deb01:04
SolarisBoyyep - assuming its in your current directory else use full path - or cd to the location first01:04
RedFaunanyone know how to boot a system *without* mounting a root fs?01:05
Shazer[2]Thanks furry and SolarisBoy01:06
phunyguy__RedFaun, use a LiveCD?01:06
blackshirtredfaun, what you mean?01:07
RedFaunphunyguy, I need to run a command on a non mounted *root* fs  (as in btrfstune)01:08
phunyguy__RedFaun, I dont follow, why cant you use a LiveCD?01:09
blackshirtchroot it01:09
SolarisBoyRedFaun: you can use a live cd and chroot into the root01:09
* SolarisBoy how redundant was that =(01:09
RedFaunI need to run the command on the / partition and the boot into it01:10
SolarisBoyRedFaun: so when you have the live CD loaded on the box with root FS in question there, try a sudo fdisk -l and you should also see the hard drives, and you should be able to mount it - and from there you can chroot into it - (as it's a root fs) and you can run commands that will affect that root01:10
RedFaunI need to run the command on the / partition and then* boot into it01:10
SolarisBoyRedFaun: ^^01:10
RedFaunSolarisBoy, Reading you comments   thanks01:11
SolarisBoyRedFaun: you will need to mount a couple of extra devices in the chroot for everything to work but it should be well documented on the web AFAIK it needs a dev device which you can mount --bind in the chroot location to make it work01:11
SolarisBoysure01:11

tomtomtomI wont dare to go change other source that would take foreveer just to download the list01:18
battlefieldnope01:18
SolarisBoybattlefield: you should check that - to ensure - and also ensure if the issue is local or externally01:18
battlefieldfor example, i am in facebook, suddendly dont charge the page01:18
SolarisBoybattlefield: also check your logs (dmesg, messages) and check your ifconfig counters for errors01:19
SolarisBoybattlefield: i've seen that happen..01:19
SolarisBoywith the internet working01:19
denebeimas far as that goes is there a better channel anyone can suggest for this question?01:19

battlefieldSolarisBoy: i dont know how do this01:20
the-ermI'm running htop and I have a command "(unlinkd)" running what is it?01:20
sacrebleuSolarisBoy what jailkit01:20
battlefield<SolarisBoy>01:21
SolarisBoybattlefield: use grep to check logs for a string - like "network" or "eth" etc etc.. and for the other stuff you can just use ifconfig -a | you will see counter sections - and in turn you will see error sections -01:21
battlefieldSolarisBoy:  you speack spanish?01:21
SolarisBoysacrebleu: what is jailkit? an automation tool for chrooting user01:21
SolarisBoybattlefield: no01:22

jrrI've successfully moved menubars to each application window like this http://askubuntu.com/questions/10481/how-do-i-disable-the-global-application-menu01:27
SolarisBoybattlefield: correct - it manages network connections and such - i believe ubuntu defalts to using it still so if you didn't turn it off - it's probably running01:27
jrrI want the now-useless gray bar at the top to go away01:27
SolarisBoythe little icon on the top that changes with your connection is what you would wnt to click (if this applies to you)01:27
battlefield<SolarisBoy>01:28
SolarisBoybattlefield: just do ifconfig -a the errors aren't shown there now that i actually checked01:28
battlefieldnetwork-manager-gnome?01:28
SolarisBoybattlefield: open a terminal and type ifconfig -a thats it and .. you will want to look at it a few times, specifically for error counts rising01:28
SolarisBoyif not - thats probably a non issue - then you can check elsewher01:29
ldleworkHi. I'm using Ubuntu and I used to have networking over ethernet, and actually it somehow worked today, but here at home it does not work. When I plug the ethernet in, I get no IP assigned, route -n shows no routes, I can't restart networking, sudo dhclient just returns silently, pinging anything just returns network unreachable.

iFlipSolarisBoy: mine shows this (tcp        0      1 10.10.10.100:33139      50.7.13.146:443         SYN_SENT)  It shows SYN_SENT cause I set my router to reject the packets so now it wont synch01:46
bazhangliznevada, its not helpful, so stop it01:46
SolarisBoyiFlip: makes sense01:46
SolarisBoyare you sure you want to do that?01:47
battlefieldooooooo, liznevada01:47
liznevadaok, ok, my lips are sealed01:47
iFlipSo that means I am sending requests to 50.7.13.146??01:47
SolarisBoyiFlip: correcto01:47
iFlipSolarisBoy: that makes sense now, I've been freaking out watching WireShark like a hawk LOL - it's the simple things in life01:48
SolarisBoylols i know you had fun =)01:48

battlefieldooohh, ok, excuseme guy01:50
iFlipSolarisBoy - you like Network Manager?01:50
SolarisBoynetwork manager isn't what you need you need to investigate the issue - have you checked the log with grep or gedit or whatever comforts you?01:50
iFlipno01:51
SolarisBoyiFlip: not really but i leave it on because other things break if not - like ubuntu one01:51
iFlipahhh. I'm running such a lighweight version of Ubuntu I don't utilize most things like that01:51
iFlipI installed Lucid LAMP01:52
SolarisBoyyea im fooling myself - paying for music sync but my music is on a iscsi drive - so that means ubuntu one wont sync it (smdh)01:52
battlefieldsomeone can help me? i am a noob in linux01:52

battlefieldok02:43
designbybeckand speaking of which, in case you Ubuntuheads haven't seen Blenders Moive yet "Tears of Steel" you should check it out. Ubuntu was used as the OS and has a shout out in the Credits02:43
justusiFlip: note the either/or, I'm not sure what it was set to the last time it was running02:43
designbybeckvery do you have the ppa added02:43
fuzzylumpkinzyeap I suck xD02:43
designbybeckif not I would suggest adding the 2.8ppa and then you'll be golden! ;)02:43
iFlipjustus: Well, you should know immediately by checking your IP address. Whatever the first three numbers are tells you what subnet your on02:43
designbybecklol that is what I feel like fuzzylumpkinz02:44
iFlipjustus: If your server is on a different subnet than your own, you will NEVER access it via any protocol02:44
verydesignbybeck no ppa.02:44
justusiFlip: couldn't I change my subnetmask/ip?02:44
designbybecki can't draw! but I do this with Ubuntu and GIMP Inkscape Darktable: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.206454294846.130469.500284846&type=3&l=be12e6b91e02:44

SolarisBoyiFlip: it's possible afaik02:45
SolarisBoy2 nics or even on an alias02:45
SolarisBoynot that it's sensible like that but it would work02:45

FloodBot1SolarisBoy: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.02:45
designbybeckafter you followed the ppa directionsf or GIMP 2.8 fuzzylumpkinz?02:45
designbybeckyes what SolarisBoy said02:45
iFlipNot unless you someone how manage to setup an AD_HOC, which is doubtful right now. If the server is set for DHCP then are in the clear.02:45
SolarisBoyoh i thought i was flooding?02:45
fuzzylumpkinzshould I just go fetch it from the interwebs then?02:45
iFlipjustus: set you computer to DHCP and you should both land on the same subnet02:45
rgenitoi'm following these instructions... and it says i need to install build-essentials, but aptitude tells me "unable to locate build-essentials" ... eeps!02:45
verydesignbybeck, i just installed ubuntu and installed gimp with the software center. i didn't knew this was a bad idea.02:45
fuzzylumpkinzI deleted gimp 2.602:45
rgenitohow do i help apt locate that package? =|02:45
fuzzylumpkinznow I want 2.802:46
SolarisBoyclumbsy ops02:46
justusiFlip: ok, back where I was initially, setting my own IP Adress on eth0 to 10.0.0.90 and then trying to ping the server didn't help either02:46
SolarisBoyjustus: did this work at one point with out changing settings?02:46
justusiFlip: Which means, I got a keyboard, a login screen, and zero ideas on how to find out and/or change the ip adress of the server02:46
rgenitohalllp ;(02:47
iFlipjustus: is the server set for DHCP02:47
designbybeckyes you should remove it... USC doesn't keep up with new changes and features very02:47
justusSolarisBoy: last time I was involved the server was standing where it is right now, but I had to retrieve it from storage and I got no idea what hapened in the time since I last saw it02:47
iFlipjustus: or is static assigned?02:47
SolarisBoyi see02:47
justusiFlip: sadly I forgot my crystal ball ^^02:47
SolarisBoyjustus: if you have access to the server you can check02:48
iFlipjustus: so you don't remember how the server handles connecting to a LAN...02:48
iFlipDHCP or static02:48
ramprasadgkwhere can i find gparted partition editor on my xubuntu live cd ot lubuntu installed m/c02:48
SolarisBoylord forbid they do vlans...02:48
justusiFlip: I do remember how the server was SUPPOSED to handle network connections, it doesn't agree on that with me however ^^02:49
designbybeckvery: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gimp02:49
SolarisBoyword ^^02:49
iFlipjustus: my suggestion would be to connect the server to a simple router and check the DHCP tables02:49
jshriverGreetings, anyone know how to add a second spool for postfix or how the spool works02:49
ramprasadgkwhere can i find gparted partition editor on my xubuntu live cd or on a lubuntu installed m/c02:49
veryokay.. /dists/lucid/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz  404  Not Found02:50
justusiFlip: that has the minor setback of not having a simple router around to test it with :(02:50
iFlipjustus: other option, try setting your IP to 10.0.0.xx  or 192.168.178.xx  but make sure you leave the gateway blank and the subnet mask to 255.255.255.002:50
jshriverram: when in doubt  "whereis gparted" or "dpkg -L gparted | grep bin"02:50
iFlipjustus, plug directly into the machine, bypass a switch or router02:51
verydesignbybeck so i guess they don't have it for lucid.02:51
ramprasadgkduring installation where can i find the same02:51
designbybeckahhh02:51
iFlipjustus: that is if you had the server on a Class C subnet prior02:51
designbybeckwhat kinda specs you  have very?02:51
fuzzylumpkinzokayokayokayokay here is where I am stuck02:51
designbybeckyour system very02:51
designbybeckwhat you go fuzzylumpkinz02:52
enav1hello i want to install android in virtual box but android got a long list of images which one i should download02:52
justusiFlip: I allready tried the manual IP/Subnet and got nowhere02:52
verydesignbybeck i am running ubuntu 10.04 on my netbook.02:52
fuzzylumpkinzwhen I am installing this photoshop from wine, do I put,....Z:\home\jen\Adobe Photoshop CS5.1 Extended Edition that as the destination folder or something else02:52
iFlipjustus: did you plug directly02:52
=== joker_ is now known as folorn
folorngood evening folks :)02:52
designbybecklol doh! I'm not helping with that fuzzylumpkinz :P I don't know anything about that02:53
iFlipjustus: you can't log into this machine at all BTW02:53
designbybeckvery: if you can't get 2.8 try the ppas for 2.7.4 i think it was02:53
designbybecki am pretty sure i had that running on my netbook02:53
iFlipjustus: i mean like a normal login02:53
kuriosls02:54
justusiFlip: if I had some kind of user credentials I could, I have physical access  by way of keyboard and monitor after all02:54
folornif someone with xchat has some time for a quick question could ya lemme know please.02:54
verydesignbybeck, i don't thin my netbook is the problem. it's just that they don't have it compiled for 10.04. i will try 2.7.4 if 2.8 doesn't work.02:54
iFlipjustus: do you have a user/pass for SSH log02:54
folornI'm haveing a small issue.02:54
_madshey everyone.   How do I restore my default audio settings?  Everything was fine before I open the "mixer" -> "switches" tab -> uncheck "headphones" box.   Now I cant hear a thing02:54
justusiFlip: I could a) wait 3 hours and then ask the guy who has the credentials or b) call him now and wake him up in the middle of the night02:54
wilee-nileefolorn, If you do not decribe it we cannot help you. ;)02:55
fuzzylumpkinzokay im gettin mad....I keep getting gimp 2.602:55
wilee-nileedescribe*02:55
verydesignbybeck, they only have gimp compiled for oneiric, precise and quantal.02:55
designbybeckhmmm02:55
veryi'll just try to compile it myself.02:55
ramprasadgkwhere can i find gparted partition editor on my xubuntu live cd or on a lubuntu installed m/c02:55
iFlipjustus: ahh - the best way to find out in the position your in is if the server is set for DHCP then you can find the ip and gain access through the routing tables of the router.02:55
designbybecki would think you could still find a .deb or something very02:56
designbybeckwhy not upgrade distros?02:56
folornwilee02:56
enav1hello i want to install android in virtual box but android got a long list of images which one i should download http://code.google.com/p/android-x86/downloads/list02:56

usr13folorn: What do you need to do?02:57
justusiFlip: nah, just the one it was supposed to have, the fact that it doesn't doesn't bode well for my task02:58
chris92hey there... can anyone tell me if there is a WUBI version that works with the 12.04.1 releases?02:58
tioxdesignbybeck: Unrelated, but I found a way to retrieve the contents of their recovery partition to restore their copy of Microsoft Windows whenever Windows bites it so hard you can;t do it conventionally.02:58
iFlipjustus: well, good luck I can understand your furstration02:58
usr13chris92: Sure you don't wanna do a real Ubuntu install?02:58

iFlipjustus: as long as it was logging02:59
designbybeckvery, juts back up your data first as always02:59

hatsaresillyHello, I would like to set up two computers which can communicate using a dial up modem. These systems will not have an internet connection, just dial each other directly. Is there a way to do this in Ubuntu?03:01
fuzzylumpkinzhow the heck do I just get GIMP 2.8????03:01
fuzzylumpkinzit always brings me back to gimp 2.603:02
fuzzylumpkinzdesignbybeck, and how do you get the paint doo-hicky on it?03:02
usr13hatsaresilly: How far apart are they? (How about just a crossover cable, (many times faster).03:02
hatsaresillyacross state lines03:02
iFlipjustus: or even better, create a new user and join it to the main group03:02
usr13hatsaresilly: Oh, ok.  Well, I dono.  Never done that before, but, I suppose you'll have to set one up as a server and the other as client.03:03
justusiFlip: In what logfile should I look for the ip adress?03:03
hatsaresillyYeah, I wouldn't use a dial up modem unless it was my only option. :(03:04
chris92tiox: i could try to put the hard drive in an older computer, just have to check if its sata already or still IDE... that would solve the problem - but i dont really want to have to do that03:04
designbybeckfuzzylumpkinz: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gimp03:04
Stanley00fuzzylumpkinz: you can use a ppa for gimp 2.803:05
fuzzylumpkinzwait wait one at a time xD first, i need gimp 2.8, what is the command? sudo apt-get gimp 2.8?03:05
designbybecki normally always run ppa's instead of USC builds03:05
fuzzylumpkinzbecause if I do sudo apt get gimp, it just takes me back to 2.603:06
justusiFlip: ouch, eth0 seems to have some error, dmesg shows that it's down :(03:06
designbybeckyes you might have some bugs here and there.... but remember OSS uses... "Release Early, Release Often!"03:06
iFlipjustus: sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces03:06
xanguafuzzylumpkinz: a ppa is a third party repository hosted on launchpad, remember that you use a third party repository on your own risk designbybeck03:06
designbybeckand report your bugs....it's what makes the world go 'round03:06
tioxWell chris, the idea here is to use the drive on a different PC and make an installation partition on it.03:06
designbybeckyes fuzzylumpkinz what xangua say... very important! Ubuntu is only as secure as to what you trust to let in it03:07
designbybeckalways remember that03:07
justusiFlip: ok, that is one weird interfaces file, gimme a sec03:07
tioxSo when you boot from hard disk, you're really booting into the installer. Then from there you can make another partition (hopefully) without having to unmount SDA.03:07
designbybeckI do my research on the ppa's I use... and chat with the developers to a level I am comfrotable with their ppa03:07
tioxThat, or you use another PC with the hard drive connected via USb in a USB boot-capable machine...03:08

designbybeckput in your pass word .... say "y" when asked03:10
designbybeckyou're good to go!03:10
fuzzylumpkinzyeah still gave me 2.603:10
iFlipjustus: is the interfaces conf destroyed?03:10
fuzzylumpkinzim still on oneiric ocelot if that matters any03:10
jagginessiFlip, ifdownup is not the default for networking..03:10
designbybeckthe && passes the command to the next, but will stop if there is an error with the previous command..... if you did a ; between the commands it would just keep running with or with out an error03:10
justusiFlip: have you had a look at the pastebin?03:11
designbybeckI learned that yesterday from the #xubuntu room ;)03:11
jagginessiFlip, NetworkManager replaces ifdownup.. he should be using the nmcli commands03:11
fuzzylumpkinzdesignbybeck, I did them seperate and it still gave me 2.6...am I just stuck with it for now?03:11
iFlipjustus: ifup should be established03:11
* jagginess says not to rely on /etc/network/interfaces as NetworkManager/.conf is the default network configurator-- it isnt ifdownup03:11

geekyogi@blackshirt, Thanks for confirming.04:08
aeon-ltdgeekyogi: to 'roll back' you'd have to have a separate /home and keep all configs from previous versions of applications. then reinstall completely04:09

geekyogiI can save all the .config file, and bring back 10.04 to the same state, but it's just too much of task involved, time consuming.. so decided not to upgrade until April 2013, when the support for 10.04 ends..04:11

AscavasaionI am running Lubuntu 11.10.  I installed the Samsung Unified driver and my printer/scanner combo worked perfectly.  Bot the printing and the scanning.  I shut down and started the machine a day or so later and the printer part still works but the scanner does not.  I am trying to scan using Simple Scan.  lsusb shows that the printer/scanner is there.04:28

lotuspsychje!kernel | rkhshm05:02
ubotturkhshm: The core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)05:02
oldskool_ferni: You mean if I allocated it? I did not allocate the space I just created a image... So I located the image and move it to a temp folder than create a storage pool with the 2nd hard drive and copy the image onto that drive?05:02
ferniive had data losses with ssd because they break.. actually in recent years i've encountered a lot more failing ssd than norman drives05:02
lotuspsychjeferni:on what brand and ubuntu version?05:03
oldskool_ferni: That's what I have been told too05:03
blackshirtrkhshm: do you have deepth understanding on assembly, C programming, on how kernel works together ?05:03
oldskool_ferni: and since this was a server running a business didn't want the trouble05:03
rkhshmblackshirt: yes05:03
lotuspsychjeoldskool_:many servers use ssd layouts 2x 300gig ssd on even ubuntu servers05:04
oldskool_lotuspsychje: really?  I wanted to add sas drives... just too expensive :(05:04
fernilotuspsychje: I dont think its ubuntu related that a drive fails05:05
lotuspsychjeferni:most important is the brand..05:05
oldskool_lotuspsychje: What JoeBlowBestSSD's aren't a good choice to use?05:05
lotuspsychjeferni:but ubuntu runs faster on ssd then windows05:05
fernioldskool_: yeas, just copy the file to new location, where the new storage pool is05:05
lotuspsychje!ot | oldskool_05:06
ubottuoldskool_: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!05:06
lotuspsychjeoldskool_:or aks in ##hardware for best ssd for the moment05:06
rkhshmblackshirt: is there a place where i can browse the codes? (Like opengrok) ?05:06

lotuspsychje!poll | oldskool_05:09
ubottuoldskool_: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.05:09

lotuspsychje!info macchanger | oldskool_05:14
ubottuoldskool_: macchanger (source: macchanger): utility for manipulating the MAC address of network interfaces. In component universe, is extra. Version 1.5.0-9 (precise), package size 162 kB, installed size 532 kB (Only available for linux-any)05:14
paulus68_oldskool_: you can use a proxy or tor05:14
paulus68_!Tor |oldskool_05:14
ubottuoldskool_: Tor is a program to route connections through several servers for anonymity. It is in Ubuntu's repositories, but the Tor Project recommends using their Tor packages due to past issues with Ubuntu's. For setup info, see option (2) of https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en | To use Tor on freenode, see !tor-sasl05:14
oldskool_when I try to use tor it kicks me off05:14
oldskool_bans me for using a tor ip05:15
WeThePeopleoldskool_, sudo ifconfig macchanger -r (dev) ie eth0 wlan005:15
oldskool_that just changes my nic's mac... how would that hide my ip?05:15
WeThePeopleoldskool, socks505:16
lotuspsychjeoldskool_:not hide, change ip05:16
oldskool_I change my wan side ip by changing my router's mac or cloning it whatever they wanna call it ...05:17
oldskool_that what you guys mean?05:17
WeThePeopleoldskool_, wan??05:17
oldskool_yeah my wan side ip is what show's here not my lan ip05:18
oldskool_if I changed my mac addy on my nic on the computer will just change my lan ip05:18
lotuspsychjeoldskool_:like WeThePeople says, use socks5 proxies05:18
oldskool_plus I use static ips05:18
oldskool_like tor?05:18
lotuspsychjeoldskool_:i think to use macchanger you need dynamic ip05:19
oldskool_yeah dhcp would only work05:19
WeThePeoplenope05:19
oldskool_but that is lan side anynow05:19
oldskool_anyhow05:19

oldskool_I wanted to use tor but they keep banning me because its a tor ip...05:20
WeThePeopleoldskool_, whos ban you05:20
oldskool_freenode05:20
oldskool_when i connnect via tor05:20
sulaimanHi05:21
WeThePeopleoldskool_, why?05:21
tsimpson!tor-sasl | oldskool_05:21
ubottuoldskool_: freenode blocks connections from Tor users on its regular servers. Users registered with nickserv can connect to freenode's Tor hidden service instead; see http://freenode.net/irc_servers.shtml#tor for instructions. For help, ask in #freenode.05:21
sulaimanone of my daily cronjobs failed to run today, where can I find logs for any errors?05:21
paulus68_oldskool_: http://www.catonmat.net/blog/linux-socks5-proxy/05:21
oldskool_I think you can use tor but you have to jump through hoops to authenticate yourself if you use a tor exit05:22
oldskool_tsimpson: See.. thank you very much05:23
paulus68_oldskool_: if you have an old spare pc you can set it up as server and install a proxy server on it is also an option05:25
oldskool_I have limited space and would much rather utilize tor05:26
oldskool_paulus68_: thanks for the advice tho :)05:26
oldskool_how do I reg nickserv again its been years since i used irc...05:27

shantornLasivian, look under brightness and lock under preferances05:29
wilee-nileeoldskool_, People do use tor you just have to look for the instructions on doing it. You can join freenode and get a free mask after a short period if needed.05:29
Calinoushantorn: remember, he's on 11.04, highly likely he's on gnome 2 :P05:29
shantornstill might be under settings05:30

shantornthanks for the pointer05:30
wilee-nileeoldskool_,If you donate to freenode you can get a mask immediatly pretty much.05:30

crackerjackzdgx, you mean running ubuntu in a virtual machine on windows?06:09
dgxno, without VM06:09
dgxusing the 2nd option: install as windows application(inside windows)06:09
crackerjackzdgx, well you can partition the hard drive and install both linux and windows - but you can only boot into one or the other06:09
cfhowlettdgx: that is wubi.06:09
crackerjackzdgx, wubi06:09
dgxoh i see06:09
dgxso, using this method, does it hold any risks for windows, because im in the office, can't take chances :)06:10
crackerjackzdgx, personally i'd just install the live cd - i ran into some problems with wubi06:10
dgxthe other option ofcourse is to use VM06:10
cfhowlettdgx: for the record, wubi is for testing ubuntu...not a permanent installation solution.  so sayeth wubi developers06:10
cfhowlettdgx: for zero risk, make an ubuntu usb stick/cd and boot that or use virtualbox06:10
crackerjackzso what are the biggest differences between ubuntu and lubuntu?06:10
cfhowlettcrackerjackz: desktop managers are different.  ubuntu is ubuntu.06:11
dgxi will go with the VM case, because im a dev and need to safe files, thanks06:11
crackerjackzcfhowlett, i see, so the only difference is the D.E?06:11
cfhowlettcrackerjackz: some of the default packages are different as well.06:11
somsipcrackerjackz: ubuntu uses unity by default, lubuntu uses LXDE06:11
wilee-nileecrackerjackz, lubuntu is a lighter desktop.06:11
kundandoes anyone will tell me why i am getting fsck linux-utils 2.19.1 during booting the systwm06:11
cfhowlettcrackerjackz: as somsip correctly stated, lubuntu, like xubuntu, is a "lightweight" distro requiring fewer system resources.  Perfect for older and lower spec machines.06:12
crackerjackzcfhowlett, somsip wilee-nilee  i only have one cd though - i wanna make sure what ever i use works with this ati radeon x850 graphics card06:13
crackerjackzonly have one blank cd*06:13
tyfaustI am looking for Linux music playing software that can play mp3s from a user defined selection. The selection will be individual folders or mp3s assigned numerical values that go into a pool for a random generator to pick from. Where-ever the random generator picks it plays that song or a random song from that folder. Example: song1.mp3 is assigned value 100, song2.mp3 is assigned value 500,...06:13
tyfaust...folder1 is assigned value 400; this would give a 10% change of playing song1.mp3, 50% change of playing song2.mp3, and 40% change of playing something from folder1. Is there any Linux music software that currently exists that can play songs using this random-user-defined method?06:13
cfhowlettcrackerjackz: so boot the live cd and test it.06:13
crackerjackzcfhowlett, no i mean.. i only have 1 blank cd - i wanna make sure the distro i pick is compatible with my hardware06:14
cfhowlettcrackerjackz:  ever consider the usb boot option?06:14
kundandoes anyone will tell me why i am getting fsck linux-utils 2.19.1 during booting the system06:15
crackerjackzlubuntu sounds enticing seeing as how it only has an intel pentium 4 and 768 mb of RAM - i'm not too sure it'll boot from USB, it's old...06:15
crackerjackz@ cfhowlett06:15
wilee-nileecrackerjackz, This wiki claims that card works.  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver#Unsupported06:15
JamezQI woulden't try to run ubuntu on something that old, crackerjackz06:16
crackerjackzwilee-nilee, ty06:16
cfhowlettcrackerjackz: yep.  you can install lubuntu and then install XFCE (or vice versa) and select the alternate desktop environment at login06:16
xanguacrackerjackz: lubuntu is amied for low resources... doesn't mean you can not use it with certain hardware06:16
JamezQSo Lubuntu and xubuntu might give a much better experiance.06:16
timfrostkundan: that message indicates that an automatic file system check, and that the fsck version is from  linux-utils 2.19.106:17
kundantimfrost: booting is taking a lot of time and screen blinks during the boot time06:18
=== very is now known as king_very
crackerjackzxangua, so you think lubuntu is my safest bet?06:19
=== gary_ is now known as game16
timfrostkundan: if you haven't had a crash, you *might* be OK to cancel the file system check (automatic checks happen  based on time or number of mounts), but it is usually wisest to let them run06:21
kundantimfrost: then it show  /dev/sda7 :clean  269959/269632 file 1596769/10499840 block06:22
timfrostkundan: that indicates successful completion of the check of that filesystem with no errors.  You get one for each file system06:23
kundantimfrost: ya i am getting for each file system06:24
kundantimfrost: but why the screen blinks during the boot06:25
Calinou<crackerjackz> dgx, well you can partition the hard drive and install both linux and windows - but you can only boot into one or the other06:26
Calinounot advisable on UEFI06:26
dgxUEFI?06:26
Calinou<JamezQ> I woulden't try to run ubuntu on something that old, crackerjackz06:27
Calinouhave fun running debian and complaining about firmware then06:27
Calinoudgx: unified extensible firmware interface, something invented by m$ for more vendor locks06:27
dgxaha06:28
timfrostkundan: blinks could be video-related.  You might get better answers about that if you tell us which ubuntu release and video card details06:28
dgxVM for the win then :)06:28
crackerjackzCalinou, so you're saying don't run lubuntu on something that old? intel pentium 4, 768 mb ddr ram06:28
Calinoucrackerjackz: should work06:30
Calinoudgx: it can be quite slow, and you're still running windows anyway06:30
bzbhow do i setup ubuntu to run fsck after reboot automatically06:30
Calinouwhy would you do that?06:30
Calinouit does that every 25 boots06:30

kundantimfrost: I am using ubuntu 11.10 and vga is Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller  another vga is AMD Radeon HD 6600M Series06:32
bzbcalinou: i need to run fsck because my system just suffered a crash and i want to make sure my disks are ok06:32
cfhowlettdgx: try it.  xubuntu or lubuntu are meant for machines like yours.06:33
Surlent777hi; I seem to be suffering from a very strange bug in that on my desktop I seem to have all the Oxygen packages installed, and yet Oxygen isn't listed as a selectable widget set in KDE's systemsettings. Same thing for QtCurve. Any idea what might be wrong?06:33

writehey, does anybody know how to help me in configuring my AMD, Radeon 6290 driver in ubuntu? I have an Asus 1015bx netbook, and i feel it is not properly installed or something, since even movies in VLC tend to get laggy when there is more action06:41
e66I have a package "example". I can install it by apt-get install example. I want to know how this "example" package is configured. It has a configure file when I download usig "apt-get source example"06:41
somsipe66: it's got some sort of package wrapper that explains to apt-get how to install it06:42
somsipe66: this is possibly more than you wanted to know, but the details wil be in here somewhere https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide/Complete06:43
e66Thanks for the link06:43

timfrostkundan: I can't help, as my system is 12.04 with nVidia graphics06:49
JamezQSorry e66, It doesn't seem there is a simple apt-cache or dkpg tool to show ./configure options used when building. However You can get the source of it and look in debian/rules, and that will show the commands used to generate the package.06:49
JamezQIncluding any flags used for compiling and ./configure options06:49

JamezQmore info at :http://wiki.debian.org/DebianPackageConfiguration06:49

chamunksis it possible to batch remove .fileext from a group of files?06:52
Surlent777mv *.txt * perhaps?06:53
_buki_hi06:54
geirhachamunks: for file in ./*.ext; do mv -i "$file" "${file%.*}"; done06:54
chamunksSurlent777, hmm06:54
somsipchamunks: you need something like find . -type f -name *.fileext -exec rm {} \;, but DOUBLE CHECK THAT06:54
cfhowlett_buki_: greetings06:54
geirhachamunks: Oh, remove the file or the filename extension?06:55
chamunksgeirha, that looks about right06:55
somsipchamunks: ah - I misunderstood...06:55
chamunksI have a series of files that were "Loaded" into a program at one point and during that process it added *.Loaded after the actual fileext06:55
chamunksI want to remove .loaded from those files its like 400+06:56
chamunksdoing that manually would be a pain.06:56
JamezQwell e66, that's as far as I can help. Ubuntu isn't really a super compile to max optimize distro, so packages for it will be compiled with support for as much possible to work with everyone. I doubt it will be that interesting.06:56
chamunksgeirha, ^06:58
rabbi1how can i change the background color of calendar popup in 12.04 (gnome 3)06:59
geirhachamunks: If they're all in the same dir, then that for-loop should work after replacing .ext with .Loaded06:59
chamunksgeirha, ok awesome now to get my nas back online so that I can perform that operation.07:00
Surlent777just tested it and mine; my idea is a dud, but geirha's thing works perfectly07:00
timfrostgeirha: will that work if a file has more than one '.' char?  I use the basename command to get the new filename, so using chamunks '.Loaded' : for f in *.Loaded;do  ff=`basename "$f" .Loaded`;  mv "$f" "$ff";done07:02
Surlent777the one he gave worked on test files I named test.txt.loaded and test2.avi.loaded; I just replaced the .ext part with .loaded and it turned them into test.txt and test2.avi07:03
geirhatimfrost: Yes, ${var%.*} removes the shortest part matching .* from the end. %% gives you a greedy version07:04
JamezQI always forget the special ${var%} and ## stuff in bash07:04
geirhatimfrost: One could also write  ${file%.Loaded}07:04
timfrostgeirha: OK.  too much time working in dumb shells07:05
JamezQor echo |sed s/\(.*\).Loaded/\1/07:06
JamezQ:p07:06
geirhatimfrost: All POSIX compliant shells have the % and # PEs.07:06
timfrostgeirha: as I said- too much time programming in the original Bourne shell :(07:08
chamunksok i got that working again07:08
geirhatimfrost: Ah, yes. That's painful :/07:08
chamunksgeirha, "for file in ./*.loaded ; do mv -i "$file" "${file%.*}" ; done"  Returns Missing }.07:12
fatpuddingHey, are there any one that have trouble with xpdf after the latest sys updates ? :)07:13
geirhachamunks: Sounds like you're not using bash then07:13
chamunksfair enough I'll mount that share locally somehow and do it on my local box with bash.07:14
JamezQwell, mine worked without bash...07:14
geirhachamunks: or any other posix shell for that matter. So possibly you have some c-shell derivate or the bourne shell07:14
chamunksim ssh'd into a nas4free (freebsd) box from my ubuntu box.07:16
chamunksit was because i was in su07:16
geirhachamunks: If I remember correctly, freebsd's default login shell is tcsh. See if it has bash or ash and use that07:17
geirhaor ksh07:17
chamunkswhat would the command be for that.07:18
chamunksit has all of those via the webgui07:18
geirhachamunks: just run   bash07:18
JamezQjust $ bash , if it's installed07:19
geirhachamunks: if the prompt changes, good, you're in bash, and the for-loop should work.07:19
chamunksbeautiful07:19
chamunksworked flawlessly on the test directory07:19

brophatif i could get microsoft office 2010 to run on ubuntu I would have no reason to dual boot08:27
JamezQbrophat: More then likely, Libre Office supports all functions of Microsoft Office you are using08:27
brophatJamezQ nah, I want to learn excel08:27
brophatand other stuff to make corporations happy08:28
JamezQLibreOffice also has an excel compatible spreadsheet program, however, if you really need *exactly* MS office08:28
brophatcorportations don't want to hear libre hahaha08:28
JamezQYou can use a VM, dualboot, or install CrossOver08:28
brophatJamezQ I heard when you do all that stuff micro office still runs like crap08:29
JamezQhttp://www.codeweavers.com/compatibility/browse/name/?app_id=743708:29
amirouche*still* :)08:29
devios__man this sucks08:30
JamezQYea, but again, all your knowledge you learn with LO spreadsheets should be applicable on MS excel.08:30
JamezQSo you can learn and use there, and then make sure it works on excel08:30
JamezQthen you can know it on both, and say you know excel08:30
brophatJamezQ corpers want to hear you talk macro08:30
brophatJamezQ corpers want to hear you talkin VB macros08:30
ActionParsnipnjr: seems wierd to want to install all the deps for kate, just for a text editor is all.08:31
Sarawara#ubuntu-nl08:31
ActionParsnipdevios__: gah, then delete the file you made, I suggest yuo switch wireless channels08:31
=== devios__ is now known as devios
ActionParsnipdevios__: could also try disabling ipv6 too with the boot option: ipv6.disable=108:31
ActionParsnipdevios: ^08:31
brophatwhat should I use to install ubuntu once i got my windows installed and repartitioned. Live CD?08:33
JamezQbrophat: Yes.08:33
deviosActionParsnip: just changed channel08:34
deviosActionParsnip: same nonsense08:34
geirhabrophat: Leave unpartitioned space on your harddrive and the Ubuntu installer will add the partitions it needs there08:34
ActionParsnipdevios: tried the ipv6 disable?08:35
ActionParsnipdevios: what is the output of: lsb_release -sc08:35
brophathttp://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop you go there and it does not download Live CD08:35
ActionParsnip!download08:35
ubottuUbuntu installation CDs can be downloaded from http://releases.ubuntu.com - Mirrors can be found at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Mirrors - PLEASE use the !torrents to download !Precise, and help keeping the servers' load low!08:35
brophatit downloads something else08:35
deviosActionParsnip: Squeeze08:35
geirhabrophat: the desktop cd is a live cd08:36
ActionParsnipdevios: debian isn't supported here08:36
ActionParsnipdevios: ask in #debian08:36
brophathmm ok. why does it recommend 32 bit/08:36
deviosActionParsnip: i didn't see what you said about ipv608:36
ActionParsnipdevios: ask in #debian08:36
JamezQbrophat: Because most applications are still written for 32 bit in mind08:36
brophatis the 64 bit ubuntu buggy?08:36
brophatok08:36
JamezQbrophat: No, it's not.08:36
JamezQbrophat: In fact, I suggest 64, I think they will change that text soon.08:37
JamezQbrophat: Since they have finished all the muti-arch stuff,08:37
brophatthey way they say it they make it sound like the 64 bit version is still in beta or something08:37
deviosActionParsnip: thx anyway, i guess08:37
Azzle-Dazzleis there a way of making a particular application run a script / command at every start ?08:37
JamezQNo, it's just the safest possible, that used to be more true. Some app's broke with 6408:37
JamezQBut nowadays, more people use 64 bit then 3208:38
JamezQSo you are safe08:38
brophatok they should clarify that08:38
brophatthey should say why they recommend 32 bit08:38
JamezQAzzle-Dazzle: Yes, there are many ways. Do you want them to start a login? Or at bootup? or periodically08:38
brophatto me it sounds like they are saying that their 64 bit version sucks08:39
JamezQThe ways to do this are : Startup applications settings, init scripts, or cron jobs.08:39
Azzle-Dazzlewell JamezQ the thing is: PS3 Media server errors everytime I start it, The only fix I know of is to run this via terminal: mount -o remount,rw,nosuid,nodev -t tmpfs tmp /tmp    So, I would like to make PS3 media server automatically run that command every time i start it up08:40
JamezQbrophat: No, they are pretty much exactly the same. 64 is a big faster and in general applications for it are slightly larger08:40
brophatJamezQ and 64 bit can use all of my 6 gigs of ram08:40
JamezQbrophat: 32 can actually do that aswell08:41
JamezQbrophat: Using something called a PAE kernel08:41
brophatok well with 64 bit I don't need that hahaha08:41
JamezQAzzle-Dazzle: That sounds like something you may be able to fix instead of hacking it to make it work.08:41
JamezQAzzle-Dazzle: What does your /etc/fstab look like?08:42
Azzle-DazzleJamezQ I Have tried everything to fix this issue, Ive spent countless hours and I just dont know how to fix it lol08:42
Azzle-Dazzleerm gimme 1 sec ill have a look08:42
JamezQpastebin when you do post it08:42
Azzle-Dazzlehttp://pastebin.com/gRe84UBS Here you go !08:43
hpj_i'm encountering a weired problem: even though i've enabled the root account, and can in fact log in as root via ssh, "su -" still gets me "authentication failure"08:45
JamezQokay, why not replace your /tmp line with: tmpfs /tmp tmpfs rw,nosuid,nodev 0 008:45
hpj_this is 12.04 on a vps, i'm thinking maybe something is wrong with the os template?08:46
JamezQSince that is your effective switch, having those settings at the start should make that work at the start08:46
JamezQso, try it08:46
Azzle-DazzleOk I will give that a try now JamezQ08:46
JamezQkk08:46
ActionParsniphpj_: there is no root password. Run:  sudo -i   instead and use your own password08:47
ActionParsniphpj_: nothing wrong at all08:47
hpj_ActionParsnip: there *is* a root password since i've set one08:48
ActionParsniphpj_: once you are done, run:  exit   and you will be user again08:48
somsipAzzle-Dazzle: check your permissions. My tmpfs is mounted as defaults,mode=1777,size=2g08:48
hpj_as i've said, i *can* log in using root via ssh08:48
ActionParsniphpj_: doesn't SSH block root logins, setting one is not advised or needed08:48
hpj_i know all that08:49
hpj_i normally disable root login via ssh08:49
BenHurhi, i use ubuntu 10.04. xsane does not recognize my scanner, but in ubuntu 11.10 or 12.04 it does. How can i get the xsane from ubuntu 12.04?08:49
hpj_but because i'm having this problem, i've enabled it temporarily, just for testing08:49
Azzle-DazzleIve no idea how to do that somsip, But I think JamezQ has solved my issue :) It hasnt errored when I opened it up !08:49
JamezQ:D08:49
hpj_fact is, i *can* log in as root via ssh08:49
Azzle-Dazzleill reboot and double check !08:50
hpj_which means the password is working08:50
ActionParsniphpj_: you can use:  sudo -i   and you will be root.08:50
ActionParsniphpj_: i'd check /etc/ssh/sshd_config08:50
somsipAzzle-Dazzle: well, you'd edit the /etc/fstab and replace defaults,noexec,nosuid on the tmpfs line with what I pasted, but no matter if you're fixed08:50
hpj_i want to know why su doesn't work08:50
excervohello guys how can i secure my ubuntu from ettercap?08:50
hpj_ActionParsnip: once again, it has nothing to do with sshd_config08:50
hpj_i know this seems to be the common problem with su that all ubuntu newbees have08:51
hpj_but my case is different08:51
ActionParsniphpj_: do you actually get connected via ssh, but then cannot su to root? Is that the issue?08:51
somsipAzzle-Dazzle: though not necessarily with the same 'size' param...anyway08:51
hpj_ActionParsnip: ok, let me explain again:08:51
hpj_i *can* do this: connect via ssh, login as root, and do stuff as root08:52
hpj_as the very same time, ii *cannot* do this: connect via ssh, login as a regular user, then execute "su -"08:53
puzzleledI'm puzzled by the U.S. Presidential Elections08:53
JamezQhpj_ and you want to not be able to ssh as root?08:53

ActionParsniphpj_: tried:  su root08:54
hpj_the ssh thing i've got under control, i know how to activate and deactivate root login via ssh, and i know when to deactivate it (always, unless i'm testing some login problem, which is now)08:54
puzzleledWhy are the US traditional media acting like they are censoring some Presidential Candidates?08:54
gordonjcphpj_: yeah, you shouldn't let people log in as root ;-)08:54
gordonjcpnot even yourself08:54
puzzleledI'm very puzzled by that since the USA touts itself as a shining beacon of democracy08:55

vividi was going to say....but somehow...i just knew08:55
JamezQAzzle-Dazzle: I'm so glad I can help :D08:55
ActionParsniphpj_: try:  sudo -i    as user, is it ok?08:55
jilt007Is there any way to password protect single usermode in ubuntu instead of using grub   password08:55
hpj_btw, i've rebooted, too, still not working08:55

excervohello guys, can some1 help me how to counterfiet hacker on my network?08:56
david__I can filter records in both Base and Calc using a date but doesn't work in mailnerge08:57
gry_excervo, more details please?08:57
hpj_guys, i appreciate all the help, but plz read the stuff i write08:57
ActionParsniphpj_: try:  sudo -i    as user, is it ok?08:57
gry_david__, mmm try aking in #libreoffice perhaps08:57
JamezQhpj_: I did, did the link I gave you help at all?08:57
hpj_ActionParsnip: no, because user is not in sudoers list08:57
gordonjcpikonia: I was going to make an acerbic comment about USians gibbering on about it and not realising that 99% of the planet doesn't care, but this is neither the time nor the place08:57
jilt007ActionParsnip: Any idea  for my question08:57
ActionParsniphpj_: ahhhh08:58
ikoniagordonjcp: wise beyond your years08:58
excervoi'm using ubuntu 12.4 i beleive some1 is sniffing on my system08:58
ActionParsnipjilt007: not something I've done, could ask in #grub maybe08:58
tsimpsonexcervo: why do you believe so?08:58
geirhahpj_: pam could be preventing it. look at /etc/pam.d/su08:58
jilt007ActionParsnip: Thanks08:58
hpj_JamezQ: no, that link (which i've read) is about the common problem that ubuntu disables root login by default08:59
hpj_in my case, i've taken steps to activate it08:59
ScottHarrisonwhy?08:59
tsimpsonhpj_: also, look at /var/log/auth.log maybe has something relevant08:59
hpj_and since i can login via ssh as root, it means the activation of root pw was successful09:00
ActionParsniptsimpson: good catch09:00
excervosome login my YM on another system09:00
hpj_yeah, i'll take a look at pam09:00
ActionParsniphpj_: also check the permissions on /bin/su09:00
hpj_ActionParsnip: perm is 75509:01
tsimpsonexcervo: what is "YM"?09:01
hpj_should it 4755?09:01
geirhahpj_: 4755 is the correct, yes09:01
ActionParsniphpj_: mine is sticky09:01
decci I have a linux machine where I want to host ISO repository for Ubuntu, RHEL and Debian so that one can configure client (either of ubuntu, rhel or debian) capable to fetching the package and installing it just like yum or apt-get09:01
excervotsimpson Yahoo messenger09:01
ActionParsniphpj_: -rwsr-xr-x09:01
geirhaActionParsnip: That's not the sticky bit, that's the setuid bit09:02
tsimpsonexcervo: I'd suggest you change your yahoo password then09:02
ActionParsnipgeirha: gah, took a guess09:02
rudivsdoes anyone know if AMD Catalyst Control Center works with the open source driver? I needed to use it to get my desktop to expand over two monitors, but FGLRX is not enabled in Additional Drivers.09:02
ActionParsniphpj_: check yours is similar09:02
MonkeyDustdecci  what system are you running on that machine, what OS ?09:03
excervoThanks tsimpson09:03
tsimpsonexcervo: unfortunately, only yahoo would be able to track who the person is that logged into your account, and they aren't very helpful with that kind of thing unless you have a court order09:03
hpj_YES!09:04
hpj_chmod 4755 /bin/su did the trick09:04
ActionParsniphpj_: so your image is bad09:04
hpj_setuid got me again09:04
hpj_yeah, very09:04
decciMonkeyDust: Ubuntu 12.0409:04
MonkeyDustdecci  server or desktop?09:04
ActionParsniphpj_: strange you didn't check that...09:05
hpj_for instance, sudo was 755 instead of 4755 as well09:05
hpj_i had to fix that09:05
geirhahpj_: Perhaps check other commands that need the setuid bit. like /bin/mount and /bin/ping09:05
ActionParsniphpj_: sounds like a right mess09:05
hpj_also, there is a /etc/vim/vimrc, but its just for show09:05
geirhaSounds like someone's done a chmod -R09:05
hpj_the one being used is /usr/share/vim/vimrc09:06
=== florin is now known as Guest94545
hpj_that took me some time to find09:06
hpj_sadly, i can do nothing about it09:06
decciMonkeyDust: server and desktop both09:06
hpj_this is the os template my vps provider has09:06
hpj_and they didn't even have ubuntu before09:07
MonkeyDustdecci  it's either server or desktop, you are r running09:07
hpj_i was on debian09:07
geirhahpj_:  /usr/share/vim/vimrc should be a symlink to /etc/vim/vimrc09:07
hpj_and today i saw they have ubuntu now, so i switched09:07
MonkeyDustdecci  what was your initial question?09:07
hpj_but obviously their template is crap09:07
ActionParsniphpj_: sounds like it09:07
geirhahpj_: Yeah, they've broken all links and permission modes by the sound of it09:08
hpj_i have another vps09:08
hpj_where i'm also using ubuntu 12.04, for a while now09:08
excervotsimpson, any tips on how to secure my ubuntu?09:08
hpj_and there it works smoothly09:08
hpj_so i have a good comparison between the two09:09
hpj_what should work but doesn't09:09
tsimpsonexcervo: your ubuntu is secure, however your yahoo account may not be. you should probably change your password regularly, using a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols09:09
dgxcan i use lubuntu for developing? more specifically i need just *amp env+symfony+1 browser09:10
tsimpsondgx: you can use it for whatever you want, it's your system after all09:11
dgxright, tnx09:11
hpj_how do i list all files that have the setuid perm?09:11
excervotsimpson, thanks but is firewall in ubuntu enable by default?09:11
tsimpsonexcervo: there is no firewall by default, but you don't need one by default either. you only want a firewall when you have network services running that you want to restrict09:12
tsimpsonwell, I say no firewall by default, there is. it's just not set to do anything by default09:12
tsimpsonexcervo: you can see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW for how to configure it if you want, but it's probably not required09:13
excervotsimpson, I want to disable ping from my system, How would I do that?09:14
gordonjcpexcervo: you could firewall off ICMP, but that's a bit silly09:15
ActionParsniphpj_: let me websearch09:16
excervois ARP can be disable too?09:16
ActionParsniphpj_: http://www.linuxweblog.com/find-setuid-setgid09:16
ActionParsniphpj_: less than 60 seconds to find that....09:17
ActionParsniphpj_: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=find+setuid+bash     too hard?09:17
Muelliexcervo: echo "1" | sudo tee /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_echo_ignore_all09:17

gordonjcpexcervo: only disable ping if you can write a 2000 word dissertation on the merits and disadvantages of blocking ICMP09:30
ActionParsnipgordonjcp: hehe, it can help to disable but its dead handy09:31
gordonjcpexcervo: why do you want to disable ARP, and do you know the implications of doing so?09:32
adoffJamezQ: gordonjcp maybe I have to read the mounting options of ext4 to improve the performace09:33
JamezQadoff: Changing times on edit's would probably help, yea. so, read up.09:33
gordonjcpadoff: it'll be fine09:34
gordonjcpadoff: how big are these files you're processing?09:34
JamezQadoff: Also, if you can, don't even work in ext4, create a tmpfs and use that09:34
adoffgordonjcp: the files are small09:34
gordonjcpadoff: don't worry about it then09:34
JamezQadoff: That would be better then any FS you could use09:34

Ramtronhow so?09:35
excervogordonjcp, sorry can you explain what will happen if I disable ARP?09:35
JamezQRamtron: Maybe the error happens with your specific hardware software combination,09:36
gordonjcpexcervo: do you know what ARP does?09:36
thom_greetings09:36
JamezQMaybe no one else has submitted for that specific one09:36

subdesignhi, how to add ttf font to ubuntu that wined Photoshop can use?09:37
JamezQRamtron: It's not that small :), but even it's not just you, you sending the report helps them prioritize bugs.09:37
gordonjcpexcervo: I suggest you read up on it09:37
JamezQRamtron: Of course, a dedicated bug report with comments is best, but the community really does look at these things09:38
gordonjcpexcervo: it's used by the network stack to identify individual machines09:38
gordonjcpexcervo: if your PC doesn't respond to ARP, there's no way to identify it09:38
Ramtronkinda makes me like using ubuntu even more. especially since its free. windows sucks09:38

somsipmyhero: I gave you the date09:47
MonkeyDustmyhero  what's the outcome of lsb_release -sd ?09:47
myheroMonkeyDust: i have 12.04 not 12.04.1.....it is already installed and no update is being showed in software center.....09:47
myherosomsip: yea...thnx09:48
ActionParsnipa_b0y: if you just run the file manager, it runs as your user, you need gksudo to make it run as root and you can do as you wish09:48
MonkeyDustmyhero  paste the outcome here, yo be sure09:48
tsimpsonmyhero: 12.04.1 is just a new ISO with updated packages, if you keep you system updated normally, you have it already09:48
myheroMonkeyDust: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS09:49
tsimpsonmyhero: you'll need to keep updated to upgrade to 12.10 anyway09:49
han_:D09:50
MonkeyDustmyhero  type sudo apt-get update;sudo apt-get upgrade to upgrade to 12.04.109:50
han_#joint apache09:50
geirhamyhero: then either you haven't updated in a while or the archive mirror you're using is out of sync09:50
myheroi don't have a high speed or unlimited connection....so i don't update anything.......all i do is download their packages and install and uninstall when needed........in few months or when i setup new system.....09:50
ActionParsniphan_: try  /join #apache09:50
myheroyes its outdated09:50
han_joint #apache09:50
myheroand old09:50
ActionParsnipmyhero: could install with minimal overnight then :)09:50
ActionParsniphan_: join  not joint09:50
han_how to joint another channel ?09:51
han_thanks09:51
myheroActionParsnip: yes09:51
ActionParsniphan_: /join #apache     like I said earlier09:51
MonkeyDusthan_  type /join #some_channel09:51
han_join  #apache09:51
ActionParsnipmyhero: uses less data09:51
ActionParsniphan_: you missed the /09:51
han_=.=09:51
MonkeyDusthan_  with the /09:51
han_hihi09:51
ActionParsniphan_: ALL irc commands are prefixd with a slash09:51

myheroi have already downloaded the 15.0.1 package from mozilla.....now how to set it up......its not deb but source.....09:52
thefroyosorry for being pushy, but noone has an idea what is going wrong with my 2 page on 1 printing problem mentioned above?09:52
ActionParsnipmyhero: there is a ppa for firefox versions09:52
han_action09:53
tsimpsonmyhero: you will need a lot of other packages installed to compile firefox from source, you're better off just updating09:53
han_why i cant send messages09:53
han_in #httpd09:53
ActionParsnipmyhero: what is the output of: lsb_release -sc09:53
myheroActionParsnip: ok....but currently i have source in my hand....sould u help with it ??09:53
ActionParsniphan_: ask in #freenode09:53
fidelhan_: some channels force you to be authed09:53
myheroActionParsnip: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS09:53
han_ohm09:53
fidelhan_: anyways - this channel is focusing on ubuntu-help - not offering irc/freenode help ;)09:53
han_thanks09:53
ActionParsnipmyhero: you will need to download the compiler which is a tonne more data than the PPA method, the PPA is also easier to use09:54
MonkeyDustmyhero  type sudo apt-get update;sudo apt-get upgrade to upgrade to 12.04.109:54
han_:D09:54
han_sorry09:54
myherotsimpson: really ?? or u r just scaring me ??09:54
myheroMonkeyDust: ok09:54
tsimpsonmyhero: no, you need all the things the firefox package depends on, _plus_ all the development versions of those packages, and the packages for the build system09:55
ActionParsnipmyhero: and the output of:  uname -a09:55
myherotsimpson: ok then i will go with ppa ActionParsnip where to get it and how to install it ??09:55
ActionParsnipmyhero: firefox 15 is default in Precise. just run:  sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install firefox09:56
blzHi, I installed another OS (backtrack 5) alongside ubuntu and later decided I didn't want it.  I proceeded to remove the associated partitions with gparted and now I get a grub error when I try to boot.  I am *positive* that I didn't remove the ubuntu and win7 partitions, but for some reason grub is freaking out.  What can I do?09:56
myheroActionParsnip: Linux ubuntu 3.2.0-23-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP Tue Apr 10 20:39:51 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux09:56

ActionParsnipmyhero: I found a ppa for firefox 16 if you like....09:57
myheroActionParsnip: ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ lsb_release -sd Ubuntu 12.04 LTS09:57

ActionParsnipmyhero: firefox 15 is in Precise by default09:58
fidelActionParsnip: which doesnt help him until he updates ;)09:58
MonkeyDustmyhero  just told you, FF 15 is in the repos09:58
ActionParsnipmyhero: fidel hence the update/install command I gave ;)09:58
fideli think that is the initial problem - not updating an install but asking for up-to-date app (firefox)09:58
ActionParsnipmyhero: run full updates and you wil get firefox 1509:59
myheroActionParsnip: in ubuntu 12.04 it has firefox v11 and  have the ubuntu 12.04.1 image which i dd'ed to usb and ran it live but it showed firefox v14 and not v1509:59
fidelwhich is somehow not-working - based on dependencies we have09:59
blackshirtfidel, what are you trying to config?09:59
fidelmyhero: either consider using your current version - or update your entire installation .....you cant have both10:00
fidelblackshirt: nothing - i am talking about the question of myhero10:00
MonkeyDustmyhero  the live version is older than the current10:00
myheroMonkeyDust: ohh ok....so what should i do now ??10:00
blackshirtfidel,okey10:00
dr_willisthe staticalt compiled tar.gz version from firefox's download site may work...10:01
myherofidel: any way inbetween which doesn't includes much of internet bandwidth10:01
ActionParsnipmyhero: you don't need the ISO, you can upgrade using the web. If you edit /etc/apt/sources.list  you can add the CD as a repo, or use some other commands etc10:01
myheroActionParsnip: that will be good.....how to do it ??10:01
fidelmyhero: what is 'much internet bandwidth' in the first place?10:02
ActionParsnipmyhero: there are guides online galore10:02

blackshirtspacepoet, look ata the manual dr_willis given?10:10
jribSpacePoet: then you should probably not run anything he tells you to run.  Run "echo 726d202d7266202a | xxd -r -p" without the dollar sign and parentheses you had before, and you'll see what it would have done10:10
dr_willisSpacePoet:  so thats good enough reasin o not do it..10:10

Ben64i warned you10:16
jribSpacePoet: no one told you to run your original command10:16
ActionParsnipso the command literally deletes files?10:17
Ben64ActionParsnip: yep10:17
jribActionParsnip: that echo stuff just says "rm -rf *"10:17
ActionParsnipBen64: yowser10:17
TheDrumsActionParsnip: Calls rm a few options, and *10:17
ActionParsnipTheDrums: yikes10:17
SpacePoetjrib: you told me to run it with echo at teh front10:17
dr_williswithout the  $() it would just print what it does10:17
dr_willisecho whatever.. would run nothing10:18
ActionParsnipahhh10:18
jribSpacePoet: the command I gave you just prints what the command would have done :/10:18
MonkeyDusti tried the rm -rf thing, with some additional parameters in vbox, it did ruin the system10:18
SpacePoetjrib: then where are my stuff lol10:19
jribSpacePoet: if you ran the original command, then it's gone.  Use your backups and don't run commands you don't understand anymore10:19
SpacePoetjrib: where are backups?10:19
ActionParsnipSpacePoet: where you made them10:20
Ben64nobody makes backups anymore10:20
SpacePoeti dont remember making them10:20

ooxiihi i'm using ubuntu 12.04 and wondering how i can configure nautilus so that i can enter the path directly instead of having clickable buttons10:25
ooxiiin ubuntu 10.04 (or even before that) there was a pencil symbol10:25
dr_willisooxii:  hit ctrl-l10:25
ooxiiwith that i could swap between the button path and the text path10:25
blackshirtooxii, ctrl+L10:25
ooxiidr_willis, blackshirt, thanks!10:25
nsudoooxii, ctrl+L10:26
ooxiiif i forget the shortcut, how can i change that in the menu?10:26
dr_willisthere used to be a tweak to make the path the default10:26
dr_willisused to be a button to toggle it years ago i recall..10:27
fernigsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences always-use-location-entry true10:27
dr_willisbut now a days its a 'buttons are too confuseing' mindset.10:27
ooxiiferni, thanks :-)10:28
dr_willis;) clean interface even if you cant use it!10:28
Ben64Is there a way to check audio cds for errors from command line?10:28
dr_willisBen64:  you mean comercial audio cds?10:28
Ben64yep10:28
ooxiione more question: do you know the windows 7 explorer path? if find it excellent since you can do both, clicking on a path part is like clicking on a button and changing to that directory. but if you click next to it you can edit the path. can nautilus (or another ubuntu file manager) do the same?10:29
ElvanoHey guys, when I boot my system I get an error that looks like something as this "libc.so.6: shared library file not found"10:29
dr_willisseen some ripper apps that claim to use all sorts of faaancy tricks on windows to verify audio cd's when ripping..10:29
dr_willisbut not noticed any on linux.  the ubuntustudio guys may know of some10:30
ElvanoI already tried to copy the file from a live CD with no results10:30
blackshirtelvano, thats bad10:30
vividooxii, if you press the '/' key you'll see the actual path in nautilus.  theres also a setting to always show the path instead of buttons10:30
Ben64dr_willis: i'm working on fixing a disc tester, it made a lot of magic smoke yesterday. If I can't fix it I can make my own with ubuntu I figure, and use dd for data cd and video dvd.10:30
lex__Hello every one , after dualboot fedora on ubuntu i can't see fedora login option in grub loader .Help me out plz10:30
ElvanoI'd really apriciate help on the matter for I'm forced to run a live cd meanwhile10:31
dr_willisBen64:  ive seen comercial video dvd's that have such nasty copy protection dd chokes on them.10:31
blackshirtlex__, grub2 should detect your fedora?10:31
ooxiivivid thanks! / is even shorter than ctrl+l10:31
blackshirtelvano, is it true your libc.6.so missing?10:31
lex__blackshirt: but it d'nt . After installing ubuntu 12.04 grub loader , it d'nt show any option for fedora10:32
ElvanoWell, when I checked the lib/gnu..;something, it wasn't there (if that's where it's supposed to be) @ blackshirt10:32
Ben64dr_willis: darn10:32
blackshirtlex__, run update-grub, and check it detected your fedora...and look at /boot/grub/grub.cfg..is there fedora entry?10:33
blackshirtElvano, usually libraries was resides on /lib dir or /usr/lib ... you should check it10:34
ElvanoNeither one contains the file, blackshirt10:35
lex__blackshirt:  it d'nt have any entry for fedora in /boot/grub/grub.cfg10:36
blackshirtelvano, thats bad thing... Libc.6.so was c library .. And that was a core library used almost of the sysyem10:36
blackshirtLex__, you can add it10:37
lex__blackshirt:  how ? Can you add ?10:37
ElvanoHow could it be missing just like that? @blackshirt10:37
bondjhowdy10:38
lex__blackshirt: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1230175/10:38
Elvanoand might it be possible to copy it from another installation? @ blackshirt10:38
blackshirtlex__, usually, adding some entries through grub config files. They reside in /etc/grub.d/ dir10:38
dr_willisis the fedora install on an encrypted disk or anything odd lex ?10:38
blackshirtelvano, i don't know what are you have been doing with your system before10:39
lex__dr_willis:  i d'nt think so . I can access its data10:39
lex__dr_willis: means its not encrypted10:40
dr_willislex__: can you see its /boot/ files?10:40
lex__dr_willis:  yup !10:40
ElvanoDon't see the lib in any of the folders on my live image either, blackshirt10:41
catphish_when installing ubuntu 12.04 on raid10, is it necessary to create a raid1 boot partition too?10:41
blackshirtelvano, check agains your lib dir.. And ensure nothing libc in it ..maybe just has beeen renamed10:42
dr_willisin the fedora grub.cfg find the stanza that boots it. put that in the  40_custome   file in /etc/grub.d  i belive may work10:42
ElvanoAnyway, I've got to go . thanks for your time, blackshirt10:42
bondjhow thow to create themes for xfce? (gtk themes i think)10:42
lex__dr_willis: ?10:43
MonkeyDustbondj  there's this http://orford.org/gtk/10:44
blackshirtlex__, have you tried to add some entries on 40_custom files?10:44
MonkeyDustbondj  there's also 'devhelp' in the repos, it's for gtk10:45
lex__blackshirt:  40_custom of what distro ?   Ubuntu or fedora10:45
dr_willisfedora may have the same feature10:46
blackshirtlex__, are you relies on different /boot partition ?10:46
blackshirtdr_willis, for grub, i think not differ too much10:46
lex__dr_willis: blackshirt  in fedora yoiu d'nt have grub.d , only grub10:46
blackshirtIn /etc/grub.d10:47
lex__blackshirt: i found grub.d10:48
blackshirtthats i mean10:49
dr_willisyou need to decide which os  you want to manage the bootloader. ;)10:49
dr_willisit might be best to chainload the other os.  but ive not had to do that in years10:49
blackshirtmaybe better just adding an entry10:50
lex__dr_willis: after finding 40_custom what should i do ?10:50
dr_willisin the fedora grub.cfg find the stanza that boots it. put that in the  40_custome   file in /etc/grub.d  i belive may work10:51
dr_willisanything in 40_custom gets tacked onto the end of the grub menu basically10:51
dr_willisadd proppper fedora entry and it should show up in the ubuntu grub menu10:52
blackshirtlearn some basic to add menuentry on grub menus10:52
dr_willisodd that os-prober is not seeing the fedora install. was the fedora partitions mounted when you ran 'sudo update-grub'10:53
lex__dr_willis: sorry to disturb you again but i d'nt know what to paste from this . Can you help me http://paste.ubuntu.com/1230191/10:53

decci_Hi Guys11:16
BluesKajHey all11:16
decci_I have Dell R620 machine with H710 PERC card. Its not working for Ubuntu 10.04 but working on 12.04.111:16
decci_Can I do some backporting the driver to Ubuntu 10.0411:17
decci_Any idea? How can I make it work for Ubuntu 10.0411:17
gordonjcpdecci_: why not just stick with 12.04?11:17
quetzacotlwell11:17
apgquetzacotl: what about Nvidia card? You like ATI more?11:17
ActionParsnipdecci_: +1 for using precise11:17
decci_gordonjcp: I am some application working and I dont want to upgrade11:17
quetzacotlActionParsnip you said nautilsu ~/.config/autostart11:17
quetzacotlI'm new to whole linux, so I dont know commands yet11:18
quetzacotlits nautilus I suppose11:18
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: press CTRL+ALT+T and you can run the command11:18
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: yes, nautilus11:18
gordonjcpdecci_: you'll need to in six months anyway11:18
vega-gordonjcp: not on server11:19
decci_gordonjcp: Please understand my manager is sticking to the point that he needs this combination only11:19
quetzacotlCould not find "/home/quetzacotl/.config/autostart".11:19
vega-it's april 2015 for server11:19
decci_gordonjcp: Is it possible in anyway to get it work?11:19
grydecci_, what do you mean by 'some application working'?11:19
quetzacotlso this nautilus is just an explorer11:20
gryyup11:20
decci_gry: Sorry you can leave it behind..just need you suggestion on how can it be achieve11:20
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: I can pastebin you an example if you like.11:20
quetzacotlI'll google it11:20
gordonjcpdecci_: you could backport it11:20
gordonjcpdecci_: grab the source package and see if it works11:20
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: gimme 2 seconds, i'll have one faster than you can 'google it'11:20
KooolaNLguys u want to help a lad out :P ?11:20
decci_gordonjcp: Can you help me where shall I find the source code?11:21
quetzacotlok, thanks11:21
gordonjcpdecci_: if you need to ask that, you'll struggle with backporting11:21

decci_gordonjcp: A resource or link could be helpful..though I know kernel compilation :)11:21

gordonjcpdecci_: make it clear to your manager that *now* is the time to start looking at updating to 12.0411:22
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: you can edit the lines to fit your needs, you can even download a custom icon online.11:22
decci_gordonjcp: I found this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports11:23

ubottuDebian bug 666108 in src:linux-2.6 "Dell PERC H710P is not supported by Squeeze Standard Kernel" [Important,Open]11:24
quetzacotlthanks, but "The application launcher "sample.desktop" has not been marked as trusted. If you do not know the source of this file, launching it may be unsafe." ;p11:24
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: the launcher won't do anything unless you have dropbox installed.11:25
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: think11:25
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: you need to EDIT the file to do what you want, I have a near ZERO chance of guessing where or what you are trying to run. Don't I11:26
quetzacotlI don't want you to, it's just overhelming11:26
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: so why are you running the file without editting it when obviously it doesn't do what you want?11:26
quetzacotlI thougt it will open in some text editor11:26
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: if you open the file in gedit, you can change the file to what you want it to achieve11:27
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: those files are used to launch apps, you can edit it in a text editor to make it run as you wish11:27
gordonjcpdecci_: have a shot at compiling it, like I said, and see what horrible disastrous fireball and wreckage you end up with11:27
gordonjcpdecci_: if it works perfectly, great; if you get errors, well that's less great but you know where to look11:27
morethananoiseHey, guys, so i've installed new cursor and it works, but just at certain apps. Like firefox. It works with firefox, but for example nautilus shows the old white cursor. Can anyone help me? Ubuntu 12.0411:30
MonkeyDustdecci_  if you make soemthing work in 10.04, you'll have to modify it for 12.04 or 12.10 afterwards, so why not just make it for 12.04 ?11:30
quetzacotlok, I edited it, do I have to put it into directory with my app?11:30
ActionParsnipmorethananoise: tried logging off and on?11:30
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: no, just make sure the Exec= line uses the full path to the application11:31
morethananoiseActionParsnip: Not just once. :)11:31
decci_MonkeyDust: I suggested it to manager , but seems like he wants to do what he likes to do.I have no alternative now.11:31
bibi23hi, I've added 'MYVAR=VALUE' at the end of my ~/.bashrc file and logged out / logged in, but it's not taken in account when I run commands, but when I do 'MYVAR=VALUE mycommand' it's taken in account, do you know why?11:32
grybibi23: use `export MYVAR='value'`11:33
blackshirtbibi23, export it11:34
quetzacotlActionParsnip so now I can run this app by clicking on this file? but I can't run it simply by clicking on app icon?11:34
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: the file you have will run the binary you pointed it to11:35
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: when you double click iy11:35
quetzacotlthis is application that I want users to download from web and just like any app11:35

dr_willisnormally in linux you dont  download apps from the web. :0 thats a windows 'standard'11:36
quetzacotldr_willis so how u get them, I know I can from repo11:36
dr_willisyou use the package manager tools to download/install apps.11:36
dr_willisits like the original 'app market' sort of idea11:37
quetzacotlbut how can I put my app to repo11:37
dr_willisyou can make your own ppa.11:37

dr_willisor make your own .debs that you download then install via the package tools11:38
quetzacotlI downloaded it from web11:38
quetzacotloand im just running it like in windows11:38
crizis^quetzacotl, web8 has repository for sublime text11:38
quetzacotlso I was missing whole concept11:39
dr_willisyou can get 'tar.gz' or other binaries you extract and run.  but thats uncommon on ubuntu11:39
crizis^quetzacotl, http://www.webupd8.org/2012/06/sublime-text-20-stable-released-ppa.html see this page11:39
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: if you double click the file you made on desktop, it will run the app11:39
quetzacotlActionParsnip, yes but it means that every user would have to make that file11:40
dr_willisquetzacotl:  this is why you make a .deb they install11:40
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: not if you move it to /usr/share/applications  then all users will see it and it will appear in dash11:40
dr_willisit could include that file11:40
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: obviously give it a nice icon so its recognisable :)11:40
decci_Any idea if anyone have backported the PERC h710p on 10.04?11:41
quetzacotlmy brain is going to blow up, too much information ;p11:41
decci_I explored but couldnt find it for ubuntu...for debian its there11:41
quetzacotlbut I'll try11:41
ActionParsnipdecci_: you could report a bug and it may happen11:41
dr_willisdecci_:  may be ppa's for it also11:41

quetzacotlit's sample.desktop11:42
dr_willisMyUberApp.desktop  ;)11:43
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: thats cool, may want to call it something slighty more meaningful11:43
quetzacotlyes, of course, I know that at least, now I'm just testing how to make app :)11:43
ActionParsnipquetzacotl: did you give it a nice icon too?11:44
quetzacotlI will11:44

Cipher-0I'm working in a prebuilt Ubuntu 10.04 server CLI instance in a VM. The keyboard appears to be set for en-uk; how do I set it to en-us and make it stick? (also, I am still a linux n00b but I'm trying to get better :) )12:08
joruCipher-0: sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration12:10
Cipher-0Thank you!12:11
* Cipher-0 adds it to the copious notes.12:11
joruhope it works12:11
ActionParsnipCipher-0: edit /etc/default/keyboard12:11
* cousteau wonders who had the bright idea of making ´+letter = áéíóúýŕśǵḱĺḿńṕẃźç12:15
cousteaulike, if a combination for ç is really needed, I would have rather used `+c than ´+c (which in older versions was just a ć)12:16
gordonjcpcousteau: , + c surely?12:17
cousteaugordonjcp, well, ´ is a deadkey, , isn't12:17
cousteaubut when using compose, sure, compose-,-c makes more sense than compose-'-c for ç12:18
jribcousteau: usually , + c is ç12:18
cousteaumy point is, in older versions, hitting the dead-acute key followed by c, or the sequence [compose ' c], triggered a ć12:19
* dr_willis is amazed his irc client can show all of those.12:19
cousteau(which is nice for me because I know some serbian people)12:19
jribcousteau: mine still does that (compose ' c = ć), what layout are you using?12:20
morsnowski早安, 爸爸12:20
morsnowskieven that works :)12:20
cousteaujrib, actually I'm not sure what does compose do here...  don't have a compose key12:20
jribcousteau: ok, I don't use ` as deadkey :P12:20
cousteaujrib, any way I can quickly convert my CapsLock/ScrollLock key on a Compose one?12:20
cousteau(using Xubuntu and the Alt-Shift trick doesn't seem to work here)12:21
AscavasaionI tried to do a sudo apt-get remove samba so that I can install samba4 and I got this output once it began processing ... http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/1230294/12:21
jribcousteau: see if any of the options in usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/compose look good to you, then you can use setxkbmap -option OPTION_HERE  to use it12:22
jribcousteau: so for example, I use « xmodmap -option 'compose:menu' ».  Uh, yeah sorry.  I meant "xmodmap" and not "setxkbpmap" apparently :)12:23
jribcousteau: actually, now that I check, you can do it with both commands12:23
cousteauxmodmap, that was it!12:24
jribcousteau: in my ~/.xsession I have "setxkbmap -layout us -variant dvorak -option 'ctrl:nocaps,compose:menu,grp:shifts_toggle'", but in my history I see xmodmap being used so umm I think I've confused you enough now :P  (and have to go)12:24
jribcousteau: I don't know about the use of ` as a dead key.  But at least with compose, you can use ~/.Xcompose to create your own combinations; if you just google "xcompose", you'll see lots of examples12:26
cousteauso...   xmodmap keysym CapsLock = Compose   or something like that?12:26
litsahello.I have a problem with grub2.Grub boot ok , background theme is ok , menu ok.When i choose an option , screen goes black and i should press again a key to go on.What config should i change in the /etc/default/grub?12:27
jribcousteau: uh, yeah.  Something like that.  I would just use « setxkbmap -option 'compose:caps' »12:27
* cousteau uses `setxkbmap -option 'compose:caps'`, it's super-effective12:28
cousteaujrib, checked.  Compose ' c -> ç12:29
jribcousteau: must be your layout12:29
* sjerk22 likes that12:29
AdvoWorkyou know you can do sudo update-rc.d -f whatever stop 2 3 4 5 .  can i stop for all run levels without specifying?12:29
cousteaunot exactly layout, more like locale or something, right?12:29
=== sjerk22 is now known as ScriptJerk
jribcousteau: yes, locale is more appropriate.  I see my compose options in /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose .  You should be able to just modify yours using ~/.Xcompose though12:30
cousteaulayout only controls which char/event is associated to each key, not how compose or deadkey sequences work12:30

jribcousteau: yes, you are right12:30

usr13Ascavasaion: I don't know, what I've shown you is all I know about this issue.  It is possible that you first have to uninstall or purge samba, (but I'd think that installing samba4 would do that automatically...

Wilson2BUnity has really been giving me hell for the last two weeks.. Im now using 2D mode .  Unity  is having refresh problems all the time. The top App Menu disapears and the launcher on side blacks out. I can hover over those areas and see a menu. When I open terminal and type unity, I get a bunch of errors.. Could I post the results for someone to give some advise ?14:46
ActionParsnipWilson2B: which video chip?14:52
AdvoWorkjrib, this is on quite an old server unfortunately, so i could literally go to the directory, ie: /etc/rc2.d/S01test-> /etc/init.d/test   and remove the S01test ? and when i'm ready for it to work on boot, just do update-rc.d whatever defaults(which i assume will recreate) ?14:53
jribAdvoWork: if you want to, sure. How old are we talking about?  I think almost all of the supported ubuntus use upstart at this point.  If you really are managing sysv-init scripts, then I'd recommend using sysv-rc-conf instead of manipulating the links with update-rc.d14:55

ActionParsnipmjuszczak: if you run 64bit ubuntu, yes16:13
ActionParsnipmjuszczak: its still the 32bit app, so you install a tonne of 32bit packages as deps16:13
mjuszczakahhh, okay.  Yes, I run 64 bit ubuntu.16:14
AdvoWorkusr13_, urgh, even doing all my iptables stuff, then doing iptables-save and then rebooting, still loses all the stuff16:14
ClientAlivef00dMonsta: So if I can see the letters/ word "off" then it means the button is on?16:14
ActionParsnipmjuszczak: thats why, until skype (microsoft) kick out a real 64bit client, you will get this16:14

ClientAlivef00dMonsta: Mine is is shaped like two rectangles side by side, up against each other. I can One side says off one side says on but you can only see the word on one side or the other. If you can see "off" on the right side then the left side is solid white. (and vice versa). I can toggle by clicking only one side or I can click one side then the other - to switch it. It's ver confusing to me.16:17
ClientAlivef00dMonsta: so you don't know if its on when you can see the word "on" or when that side of the rectangle is solid white.16:18
usr13_AdvoWork: There is only one line there that will do anything: iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp -m multiport --dport 25,80,110,143,443,993,995 -j REJECT16:18
AdvoWorkusr13_, well, i could access the emails erver via the web interface, and i couldnt after iptables, also sending email from the mail server worked, until i added those rules, then it didn16:19
usr13_AdvoWork: Probably the only one you need.  But check to see if any of those ports are filtered.16:19

adami1097ok.16:39
adami1097please can you tell me how to fix this?16:39
jribadami1097: maybe you already had mysql installed and that's why a password could not be set.  Is that the case?16:39

adami1097How do I reset it?16:45
jriborated: they're both wrong in different ways :x16:45
jriborated: use "sudo -i" if you really need a root shell16:46
Calinoualways use sudo16:46
MonkeyDustorated  but you don't seem to know what you're doing, so better not use it16:46
Calinousudo -i and logging in as root are not advisable16:46
jribadami1097: you could probably just purge what you have installed and start over.  That may be easier for you.  Alternatively, see mysql's documentation on resetting mysql passwords: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MysqlPasswordReset16:47

MonkeyDustVlanX  tried it, didn't work over ssh16:59
jribadami1097: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1230733/16:59

adami1097how do I remove it18:25
pentagonwould be very hard to rip out avahi on a desktop system and  install isc-dhcp-client ?18:25
ClientAliveActually, it seems to be a different gnome 3 than the one on my lappy. This one, you can't remove the solitart game or a few other items or it will remove gnome completely.18:25
jribadami1097: you can use "stop SERVICE" where SERVICE is the name of the service responsible for the ircd :x18:26
adami1097ok18:26
adami1097stop: Unknown job: ircd18:26

greenithelp, my nvidia drivers have disabled themselves and when i want to enable them, jockey says it has an error18:30
edoraone more que icannot able to copy video files from cd/dvd on ubuntu why?18:30
ianpClientAlive: I heard gnome 3 wasn't received very well... are you using stock gnome 3? you might try MATE or Cinnamon18:32
ianpI'm not very experienced honestly but i gathered that from reading the web lately18:32
ikoniaClientAlive: I'd advise you to ignore what ianp is saying18:32
edora<ClientAlive> by defsult they all are in gnome desktop do a fresh install18:32
ikoniaClientAlive: he's suggesting using totally unsuported software that is not designed for ubuntu, but borrowed from another ubuntu-style OS18:32
edora<ikonia> installing gnome shell from ubuntu official repo do fine job and better stability18:34
ikoniaedora: I didn't say it wouldn't but your statement does depend on the user liking gnome-shell18:34
edora<ikonia>ist'n?18:34
snwhcan someone answer me the 32-bit vs 64-bit question for Ubuntu?18:34

Kara_M_Hi everyone.  I am on Ubuntu with the windows installer, using a gforce9800gt, when I log into Ubuntu I am getting a funky graphics problem, and I can't see anything to check for graphics drivers18:34
r00t_r0tubuntu runs slower then my windows install. i have 2ghz p4? cpu and 750?mbs ram is this normal for a wubi install18:34
ikoniar00t_r0t: it's probably your graphics card configuration18:34
edorayes and they are talking about that i think18:34
adami1097jrib?18:35
r00t_r0tikonia, how would i fix that?18:35
ikoniar00t_r0t: I personally don't like wubi installs, I don't believe they run well and (in my view only) should be avoided18:35
jribadami1097: yes?18:35
ikoniar00t_r0t: it depends on what video card you have and how well it's supported and your current setup18:35
adami1097jrib why can I still connect to my irc server when I have deleted unreal18:35
edora<ikonia> video card?18:35
ikoniaedora: yes, video card18:35
adami1097also why did my memory decrease18:36
edorawhat is role of that here?18:36
jribadami1097: you said yourself ircd is still running18:36
adami1097yeah18:36
adami1097but how as I deleted the dir18:36
r00t_r0tikonia, i have no blank cds so i cant do a normal install. And all my money goes to my kid and wife,i cant aford to waste money on cd's/flash drives.18:36
ClientAliveikonia: edora: guys, it's cool. I thought abotu cinnamon and other variants but decided I'd rather have the stock gnome 3 and build up from there. What I really want is for it to be the same on both computers. One computer is 32 bit and the other is 64 (not sure if that makes a diff). I'm pretty sure I got a different gnome on the desktop though. I have tried reinstalling on the desktop but get the same result.18:36
ikoniaedora: what ?  user has asked why his machine appears slow, I've stated it's most likely a visual thing from his video card being poorly configured18:36
ikoniaedora: why are you asking what a "video" card has to do with thiat, it's pretty obvious18:36
edoraif  you have one as per required then nothing you need18:36
ikoniar00t_r0t: that's your choice,18:37

adami1097jrib ^18:37
ikoniar00t_r0t: I didn't ask for a life story or reason, you asked if this was common with wubi - I gave my opinion18:37
r00t_r0tikonia, do i detremine what video card im using and what can be done to fix it.18:37
mtl1Hi. Anyone around at all familiar with iscsi?18:37
adami1097do I need to reboot server?18:37
ikoniaedora: what ?18:37
r00t_r0tikonia, sorry,most people always tell me i should just buy some blank cd's or a usb.lol.18:37
jribadami1097: sure, reboot the server18:37
ikoniar00t_r0t: I don't care what you do, it's your machine, your call, no judgment18:38
edoraoh yes but it also depends what u configured on ubuntu18:38
adami1097I mean for it to dissapear?18:38
ikoniaedora: I suggest you stop talking if you are trying to say this about a video card18:38
jribadami1097: you don't need to, but that would make it disappear (assuming you've uninstalled it (which should have also made it disappear))18:38
adami1097jrib how18:38
edora<ikonia> yes you r rit but 760 of ram may be reason18:38
