bennypr0fanejrib before I go and reset, I just want to mention I just logged off and back on: I wasn't asked for a pwd to log on, but to unlock the keyring, and the old pwd still worked there00:00
mr_t3its not really what rsync is intended to do, i know ;)00:00
overcluckerRespite212: do you have somewhere to store a home backup wile the partitions are being modified?00:00
jribbennypr0fane: yes, keyring is a separate password; you'd have to change it separately00:00
bennypr0fanejrib but the pwd for logging into the desktop session is also my root pwd?00:01
Respite212overclucker: Hmmm I don't think so, my /home is rather large.00:01
actionParsnipmr_t3: is there an option listed in the man page?00:01
jribbennypr0fane: you don't have a root password.  Sudo asks for your user's password00:01
klaxtri have a question, is terminal based on python??00:01
bennypr0faneok, then sudo pwd00:02
mr_t3actionParsnip, i have not found one, but that does not implies that there is a possibility (dark evil hack) ;)00:02
bennypr0fanejrib is it the same as for session logon?00:02
jribbennypr0fane: yes, that also asks for your user's password00:02
bennypr0fanejrib How can I get rid of the keyring/need to unlock it (is what I wanted to accomplish in the first place)00:03
jribbennypr0fane: if it's the same as your user password and you don't use auto-login then it should unlock automatically. If you want to use auto-login then you need to use a blank keyring password00:03
blackshirtklaxtr, what you mean ?00:04
bennypr0fanejrib where do I specify whether or not to use auto-login?00:04
ms_daisyHi. I need to triple boot my computer. I've got Windows 7 and Ubuntu dual-booting right now. Can anyone point me to a guide telling me how to add a third OS?00:04
jribbennypr0fane: the dialog you mentioned before00:04
jribms_daisy: what OS?00:05
klaxtrseems that terminal is based on python00:05
jribklaxtr: what terminal?00:05
klaxtri mean the way python works is very similar than python00:05
ms_daisybacktrack jrib .00:05
klaxtrubuntu terminal00:05
jribms_daisy: just install backtrack to its own partition and ubuntu's grub will find it when you run update-grub00:06
blackshirtklaxtr, you mean gnome-terminal00:06
blackshirtklaxtr, why you could say it?00:06
jammeklaxtr: the concept of terminals is a few decades older than the concept of python00:06
ms_daisyThat's the part I need guidance on jrib . How do I get it to install in its own partition?00:06
bnwkeysQuestion: After merging two partitions with GParted Live, Ubuntu now thinks that I have a missing partition and it adds an extra dialog every startup "Unable to mount /blahblah ....".  I have to press "S" to skip ahead when it does its endless search for the partition that isn't there.  Anyone know how to tell Ubuntu to forget that partition?  Or where in the filesystem the config is for mount on startup?00:06
jribms_daisy: do you have a free partition?00:07
zykotick9bnwkeys: check your /etc/fstab file00:07
bnwkeysthanks00:07
actionParsnipms_daisy: you can resize ext4 in livecd, be sure to run a full backup before starting00:07
blackshirtklaxtr, i think gnome-terminal was written with gtk library00:07
paoloktmciao00:07
bennypr0fanejrib: I actually don't remember ever being asked to specify a separate pwd for the keyring. The prompt *to unlock* the keyring just popped up and I entered my user pwd00:07
=== Axlin_ is now known as Axlin
overcluckerRespite212: it's more complicated, but you could setup lvm for your sda4, move the data back, setup lvm for sdb1, extend the volume, and then resize the filesystem, and set the volume as home in fstab. there are a lot of complicated steps though so it's up to you if you want to do it or not.00:07

ubottuThe /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions00:08
jribbennypr0fane: I think initially it's just setup the same as your login, but if you change your login, it won't change automatically00:08

bennypr0faneha! I learned how to use ubottu00:10
bennypr0faneawesome00:10
bennypr0fanegonna go reset the damn pwd now00:10
ms_daisyactionParsnip, jrib I currently have one windows boot partition, one windows partition, one windows recovery partition, and one extended partition with ubuntu & swap in it. So currently I do not have a free partition, I need to create one.00:11
jribms_daisy: have backups and use gparted to resize as actionParsnip suggested00:11
Respite212overclucker: Oh.. logical volume management.00:11
actionParsnipms_daisy: you can resize your logical partitions00:11
bnwkeysI am, it is very helpful, thank you benny00:11
Respite212overclucker: Is it stable?00:12
paoloktmciao00:12
overcluckerRespite212: yup00:12
ms_daisyI have to do it from a live cd, right? I can't use gparted from the ubuntu installation?00:12
paoloktmlist00:12
actionParsnipms_daisy: you may be able to extend your extended partition to  enable you to make free space to install to00:12
Respite212overclucker: If you got time to assist me with it, I'll give it a shot, never done something like this b4.00:13
klaxtrim learning python and seems that gnome terminal works as python, so i was wondering if gnome terminal had something of python code on it00:13
overcluckerRespite212: sure00:13
paoloktm?00:13
Respite212overclucker: Thanks much.00:13
paoloktmgriffin?00:14
ms_daisyklaxtr, you can drop to a python shell. Is that what you did? Bash !=python.00:14
actionParsnipklaxtr: the shell can interpret scripts and so forth, you can run python code as you need00:14
actionParsnipklaxtr: thats why bash scripts have #!/bin/bash  at the top, python will have a python based line.00:14

actionParsnippaoloktm: è possibile utilizzare wine, perché non utilizzare uno dei molti clienti nativi00:16
zykotick9klaxtr: gnome-terminal is just a way to access your shell, called bash.  terminals don't do much, bash does.00:16

klaxtras there re no stupid questions how you can use bash scripts00:21
actionParsnipklaxtr: just start a text file with:  #!/usr/bin/python       and use python commands, it will run. You will need to make the text file executable00:21
ms_daisyyou can drop to a python shell inside of bash.  I forget the command.  Someone help me out.00:22
overcluckerRespite212: we need to set the partition type for /dev/sda4 to 8e; sudo cfdisk /dev/sda00:22
actionParsnipklaxtr: when you run it, the interpretter will see you telling it to use python, and itwill be used00:22

ms_daisyusr is not user.00:25
overcluckerRespite212: oh, that's right you deleted it. press n and add as a primary partition. then select it in menu and press t00:25
Respite212overclucker: No, I didn't delete the partition it's still there00:26
actionParsnipklaxtr: whack it in a text file, mark it as executable and you have a python script00:26
overcluckerRespite212: so sda4 is there?00:26
klaxtri see00:26
klaxtrwhat applications are based on python in ubuntu does anyone knows?00:27
Respite212overclucker: I see it in Gparted, but all I see in cfdisk is sda100:27
overcluckerRespite212: then close cfdisk with Q and use gparted.00:27

Dr_williscornell,  yoyu can make aptitude generate a list.. but dont use aptitude for much more.00:41
Dr_willis!clone00:41
ubottuTo replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » (this currently may cause problems with multiarch) - See also !automate00:41
ejvcornell: sudo dpkg --get-selections ; will list all currently installed packages.00:41
Dr_willisYou could tweak the command in that factoid to make a simple list.  but DONT use aptitude to install stuff like the 2nd half says.00:41
actionParsnipbooh-: what is on the screen when you have to select 'resume'?00:41
Dr_williswe need a better clone factoid someday. ;)00:41

cornellpsusi: Choosing the old shell... when, how?  On installation, or switch it after installation?00:58
zykotick9farrioth: compile from source would be another option.  trying to use old packages, silly imo.  best of luck.00:58
ann-sophiehello all...Id like to have your opinion....I'm trying to install ubuntu and it never succed to install the application part...i was able to install the first part, the gnome.... have any idea??00:58
overcluckerRespite212: sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/vol/home00:58
psusicornell, log out, choose the other shell, log in00:58
Respite212psusi: using the exact same hard drives, same speed. same everything00:58
psusiRespite212, then you should raid them... get faster performance then00:59
farriothzykotick9: I need old packages because new packages are buggy/missing...00:59
cornellpsusi: after I first installed, there wasn't an option...  I'd installed another...kubuntu or something, and then I got two choices.00:59
DeucesWildCatch2thanks cornell.00:59
zykotick9farrioth: i'd suggest you are using the wrong distro then...00:59
shwaiilRespite212: thanks a lot00:59
grumblyIs it possible to mount a directory on a NAS and make it persistent?01:00
Respite212shwaiil: np, gparted need root access so you need to sudo it.01:00
farriothzykotick9: I am, but I can't be bothered setting up everything from scratch once again.  All my hardware is working now...01:00
grumblypersistent being It comes back on its own after rebooting01:00
Respite212psusi: Ummm I never did raid.01:01
cornellDeucesWildCatch2: Now, myself... I've been using linux for... ugh 20 years?  15 at least.  But I don't get into the gory bits often enough... so I'm kind of an old-newbie.01:01
Respite212overclucker: Done01:01
farriothgrumbly: After rebooting the NAS or the system it's mounted on?01:01
bobo37773grumbly: Can't you just add it to your fstab?01:01
grumblyeither01:01
Respite212psusi: And I have so much stuff on my hard drives I don't want to reinstall/update/reconfigure everything.01:01
DeucesWildCatch2an old newbie, interesting way to put it.01:01
grumblyfarrioth: both... either...01:01
overcluckerRespite212, shwaiil: gksudo gparted01:01
grumblybobo37773: I am not sure.  if I can, I don't know how01:02
DeucesWildCatch2perhaps you are ready to get gory??01:02
ann-sophieId like to have your opinion....I'm trying to install ubuntu and it never succed to install the application part...i was able to install the first part, the gnome.... have any idea??01:02
grumblyI've never done a remote mount point in fstab before01:02
=== Raccoon` is now known as Raccoon
shwaiiloverclucker: what is gksudo ?01:02
psusiRespite212, you don't have to reinstall... just use mdadm instead of lvm to set up the two drives01:02
cornellpsusi: Is there a DM that I can install that is gnome?  I don't suppose it's called gnome.01:02
zykotick9shwaiil: see "/msg ubottu gksudo"01:02
overcluckerRespite212: sudo mount /dev/vol/home /mnt; sudo cp -aR /home/* /mnt01:02
bobo37773grumbly: Yeah that may be strange since network needs to be up. Pretty good point. There must be some kind of new equilent in upstart for rc.local01:03
cornellshwaiil: kind of like a windowed sudo, instead of a normal terminal sudo.01:03
overcluckergksudo | shwaiil01:03
shwaiiloh ok01:03
farriothgrumbly: fstab if the system it's mounted on is rebooted.  For the other way round... you could run an ssh server on the system where the directory is mounted and get the NAS to ssh in and mount itself on boot.01:03
shwaiilthanks01:03
overclucker!gksudo | shwaiil01:03
ubottushwaiil: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)01:03
psusicornell, gnome-shell is the new gnome 3d shell01:03
DeucesWildCatch2when i type "sudo fdisk -1" i get the reply " fdisk: invalid option - -101:03
bobo37773grumbly: How are you mounting it now? Maybe you can create either a cronjob or a rule or something to load it after boot01:03
cornellYeah, what ubottu said.01:03
psusicornell, iirc, the old 2d style fallback is installed by default01:03
zykotick9DeucesWildCatch2: L not 101:03
cornellBoy that ubottu is a clever guy ;-)01:03
grumblyfarrioth: I don't need to move files from the nas back... why would I have the NAS ssh in?01:04
grumblybobo37773: I;m not... i'm over SMB01:04
DeucesWildCatch2L? for listing?01:04
zykotick9DeucesWildCatch2: -l for list01:04
* grumbly is a bad sysadmin01:04
DeucesWildCatch2hmm01:04
zykotick9DeucesWildCatch2: lowcase L, not 1 (sorry wasn't clear 1st time)01:04
Respite212overclucker: Thanks for the gksudo command. I didn't know.01:05
rushiopi try this guide http://secondpulse.blogspot.com/2012/06/how-to-install-motioneye-driver-in.html but didnt work01:05
farriothgrumbly: So it can mount itself once it comes back online.  The other option to to poll (on the client) to see when it goes down and then to see when it comes back up and then mount it.01:05
bobo37773grumbly: :P Not sure exactly how it works but I am assuming it still uses mount (not alot experience with SMB). Learn how to mount it in the shell and then write a rule to do it at startup. That's it really. Should be01:05
Respite212overcluckers: Done, but got error cp: cannot stat `/home/username/.gvfs': Permission denied01:06
DeucesWildCatch2ok. now i did do that afterwards.  response is quite intense. since i am trying to wipe the whole lappy which would i choose if partition table entries are not in disc order?01:06
bobo37773Respite212: What are you trying to do with gvfs?01:07
cornellIf I upgrade this machine to 12, I assume that gnome-shell will remain.01:07
DeucesWildCatch2I am using my asus as I am trying to do this on the HP i was given01:07
grumblyfarrioth: OH YOU GENIUS!!! the NAS is a storebought one, so I don't know if I can do the SSH login... which would be pretty cool...  could you explain the other idea more and how I would go about ths?01:07
rushiopenyone have a vaio vgn fz250fe?01:07
bobo37773Respite212: Are you trying to backup information to restore it somewhere else using cp? Use rsync01:08
ann-sophieanyone had time to read my problem?01:08
DeucesWildCatch2Just call me Deuce.01:08
bobo37773ann-sophie: Can you elaborate a little bit more?01:09
grumblyann-sophie: what is the problem you're having?01:09
ann-sophieId like to have your opinion....I'm trying to install ubuntu and it never succed to install the application part...i was able to install the first part, the gnome.... have any idea??01:09
farriothgrumbly: Can you log in to the NAS over ssh at the moment?01:09
DeucesWildCatch2my lappy shows /dev/sda1-6 and states partition table entries are not in disc order.. All i want to do is wipe this laptop.01:09
grumblyfarrioth: no... i'm not at that network at the moment01:10
ann-sophieand if i book unto ubuntu...I get a prompt..similar to a msdos windows01:10
grumblyann-sophie: what do you mean it never installs the applications?01:10
rushiopsomeone can help me with my motion eye cam vaio vgn fz250fe?01:10
ann-sophiei get a error message telling it failed the install01:10
bobo37773ann-sophie: By elaborate I meant explain a little better not copy and paste the same thing you typed already :| Like what do you mean by the application part?01:11
grumblyann-sophie: what is the name of the disk image are you trying to install from?01:11
ann-sophiei have a acer notebook01:11
ann-sophieubuntu-12.04.1-alternate-amd6401:11
farriothgrumbly: Can you usually, though?  If you can then we'll go with having the NAS mount itself; if not, I'll explain the polling option.01:11
ann-sophieis the iso i have01:11
grumblyann-sophie: try using a different iso file.01:11
actionParsnipann-sophie: did you MD5 test the ISO?01:12
cornellann-sophie: I assume that your Acer is 64 bit01:12
actionParsniprushiop: did the device show in the output of lsusb?01:12
DeucesWildCatch2Never mind the light just turned on.. i get it now..01:12
ann-sophieactionParsnip i dont recall01:12
grumblyfarrioth: I have honestly never tried.  It hasn't really been used for anything, then today, boss said "hey, why don't you automate this file stuff"  and I said "uhhh... OK"01:12
ann-sophieyes Corey01:12
ann-sophieoups cornell01:12
actionParsnipann-sophie: then I suggest you recheck it to be sure01:13
cornell;-)01:13
ann-sophieoki,01:13
jagginessann-sophie, that "alternate" iso is not the standard download for desktop users. (unless you want to setup raid with it)01:13
farriothgrumbly: Okay, let's go with the polling.  I'll write a script and get back to you in a few mins.01:13
jagginessann-sophie, (but it uses the same online repositories for the packages-- but the "installer" may appear a bit different)01:13
ann-sophieno..i want to try ubuntu...01:13
DeucesWildCatch2what is the device name of te hard drive in ubuntu ?01:13
grumblyfarrioth: you, senator, are a generous man.01:13
ann-sophieok..so ill download the i386?01:14
jagginessann-sophie, the "alternate" in the name of the iso file.. isn't the "standard" desktop (be it 32bit or 64bit)01:14
DeucesWildCatch2Is it the "disc identifier"01:15
ann-sophiebut... jagginess do i have to "unistall"01:15
jagginessann-sophie, the installer may look a bit different.. and i have no clue on the latest.. but i can give you a link for the standard amd64 (64 bit, which is also use for intel-- intel uses the amd64 iso of course)01:15
trent286psusi - because I want to virtualise the physical machine.  So first I create a raw image, then perform P2V process.01:15
jagginessann-sophie, but sounds like you had "somewhat" of a success.. how far are you into the install?01:15
steveGODSchildI need help01:15
ann-sophieUbuntu 12.04.1 LTS 64 bit is the good one?01:15

DeucesWildCatch2im currently stuck trying to figure out my hard drives name01:18
steveGODSchildbut my cd rom will not work01:18
Respite212deuceswildcatch2: I believe it's sudo blkid01:18
ann-sophiejagginess besside the errors telling that the application part has failed01:18
DeucesWildCatch2what does that stand for?01:18
jagginessann-sophie, what's the name of this "application", is it grub?01:18
DeucesWildCatch2block id?01:18
ann-sophiebefore the grub install01:19
DeucesWildCatch2Thanks Respite i was trying too hard to get some help..01:19
Respite212deuceswildcatch2: I believe it lists out the UUID for all your partitions and drives.01:19
ann-sophieafter i install the grub and it works01:19
jagginessann-sophie, sounds like you're using wubi01:19
overcluckerRespite212: ok now add /dev/vol/home or it's UUID to the home line in fstab01:19
actionParsniprushiop: if you can pastebin the output of:  lsusb; lsb_release -a     we can advise01:20
ann-sophiewubi? im a major noob...and a girl...dont go to techno bable with me01:20
jagginessann-sophie, so you stay "stucked" in grub?01:20
ann-sophiegrub works...01:21
jagginessann-sophie, btw, do you know what grub is?01:21
ann-sophiepretty well01:21
grumblyDeucesWildCatch2: when you say you need to ind your hard drive's name, do you mean the device id or do you mean what you called it?01:21
jagginessann-sophie, ok.. so you're saying the thing "before" grub is problematic. I don't see what that can be.01:21
ann-sophieits the thing that lets me boot in windows or ubuntu01:21
DeucesWildCatch2Respite212, thank you what is the significanse of "swap" or ext4"01:21
jagginessann-sophie, did you change anything in grub.cfg?01:21
ann-sophieill restart and installtion...and and not exactly01:21
ann-sophienote*01:22
Respite212deuceswildcatch2: swap is for additional space for ram during sleep mode, ext4 is the file extention.01:22
ann-sophiewhat is the message01:22
DeucesWildCatch2I can type, although tired I apologize.01:22
jagginessann-sophie, there's wubi and non-wubi.. are you "able" to login into the ubuntu command line?01:22
Respite212overclucker: is it the /dev/vol/home or the actual sda4 uuid?01:22
psusitrent286, you going to convert the raw image to a qcow2 image?01:23
DeucesWildCatch2Grumbly, while using ehow, it gave instructions to Wipe a hard drive by typing "sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=device bs=1M" into the "Terminal" window, replacing "device" with the device name of the hard drive and pressing "Enter."01:24
Respite212overclucker: I got 2, one is for the /dev/sda4 uuid, the other is /dev/mapper/vol-home01:24
DeucesWildCatch2However I am unsure of what the device name could be.01:24
grumblyDeucesWildCatch2: ah!  there are several ways to get this info!  in the terminal, you can type mount01:24
trent286psusi - most likely run virtualbox tool - something like :  $sudo dd if=/dev/sda | VBoxManage convertfromraw stdin MyLinuxImage.vdi01:25
grumblyDeucesWildCatch2: look for something like /dev/sda1 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-no)01:25
psusitrench_, then you can skip the raw image and covert directly from the hd to the vdi01:26
grumblyDeucesWildCatch2: it may not be exactly that, but the important part is /01:26
rushiophttps://bitbucket.org/ahixon/r5u87x wont work, im done, i already use all i have to try make this webcam work, i dont know what to do01:26
grumblyDeucesWildCatch2: it may not be exactly that, but the important part is the stuff "/dev/sda1 on / "01:26
trent286psusi - so if i power the machine off, boot to live CD and then do something like the above it should be okay?01:26
DeucesWildCatch2i found on similar to that except it was (rw,errors=remount-ro)01:26
grumblywhat is the whole line:01:27
grumbly?01:27
trent286psusi - i thought the fakeraid would get in the way of dd01:27
DeucesWildCatch2well the same for what you put except it was dev/sda501:27
psusitrent286, you shouldn't even need to use dd... you should be able to point vboxmanage directly to the drive... fakeraid just means you need to use the /dev/mapper raid device instead of the individual disks01:27
overcluckerRespite212: its /dev/mapper/vol-home01:27
grumblyOh... you're partition scheme is weird.  was this a wubi install?01:28
farriothgrumbly: http://dpaste.com/811370/01:29
grumblyDeucesWildCatch2: ignore that... What is it you want to do exactly?  are you trying to format a drive or change the partition scheme or just erase some data?01:29
Respite212overclucker: I got 2 home lines in fstab01:29
farriothgrumbly: Change the first three variables, and perhaps the sleep timeouts.01:29

DeucesWildCatch2grumbly, i have a disc to start ubunto on after everything is wiped01:31
grumblyDeucesWildCatch2: AH!!!! OK!!!! when you boot the computer, boot off the CD or USB.  while there, just repartition the drive.  all the data will be essentailly gone.01:31

actionParsnipEmanon: its not a mandatory package, it can be removed. You have that option01:53
EmanonIn a sarcastic fashion.01:53
actionParsnipEmanon: its not, i'm telling you how your OS works01:53
EmanonOr did you mean the diving part?01:53
farriothactionParsnip: I use kmail, and the version shipped with precise is slow and buggy.  I'd like to use the older version which doesn't use akonadi etc., but it has been dropped from the repos, so I'm having to sort out deps by hand.01:53
EmanonSucking*01:53
actionParsnipEmanon: I hate firefox, but I remove it and promptly install the browser I prefer01:54
DeucesWildCatch2I am at a screen that gives me th options to install ubuntu alongside them, erase disc and install ubuntu or something else..Sine my hard drive is partitioned for a triboot. and i am just wanting to erase everything else is it going to completely alter the entire hard drive?01:54
Canuckianif you erase everything, it will erase EVERYTHING01:54
EmanonAnd what about the alternate install disc? Is that getting dropped?01:54
DeucesWildCatch2so i would need to repartition theHD?01:55
actionParsnipEmanon: seems so http://news.softpedia.com/news/Canonical-Drops-Alternate-CDs-from-Ubuntu-12-10-289338.shtml01:55
EmanonLame.01:55
jagginessDeucesWildCatch2, if you choose erase, it will wipe out any existing partitions01:56
actionParsnipEmanon: Lubuntu has an alternate ISO01:56
actionParsnipEmanon: but you knew that01:56
jagginessDeucesWildCatch2, "something else" allows you to do "manual" partitioning and is the safest way to do it if you want to keep existing partitions01:56
DeucesWildCatch2Canukian, as this was given to me, I am ok with that, i was just hoping to delete everything that was done in Ubuntu without having to repartition the drive.. if that is what i need to do than I can work with that.01:56
jagginessDeucesWildCatch2, ...01:57
jagginessDeucesWildCatch2, ...01:57
actionParsnipEmanon: anything else you want to rant about?01:57
jagginessDeucesWildCatch2, ubuntu's option "something else" allows you to do manual partitioning.01:57
DeucesWildCatch2jagginess i can completely wipe out documents and pictures that were used on the ubuntu os partition?01:57
EmanonBut I actually like unity. Lxde isn't good.01:57
jagginessDeucesWildCatch2, i think you missed the 'upgrade' option, ubuntu is able to upgrade itself from cd, if you already have ubuntu installed01:57
actionParsnipEmanon: then install Unity as you wish, if the alternate ISO is SOOOO important to you01:58
DeucesWildCatch2my sidter gave me this and it was given to her b her ex. i just found out it has open VPN.. so, i guess i will just wipe it and repartition it.01:58
EmanonactionParsnip do I know you from another channel?01:58
jagginessDeucesWildCatch2, you can wipe out everything, but there's a more convenient tool for doing this, it's gparted live cd (from sourceforge)01:58
DeucesWildCatch2oh alright I am sitting up now, I am so sorry for the typos01:58
actionParsnipEmanon: just here, I also #ubuntu+1 and #ubuntu-offtopic01:59
DeucesWildCatch2sourceforge.01:59
CanuckianDeucesWildCatch2: in that case, do as jagginess said and do manual partioning01:59
jagginessDeucesWildCatch2, http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php01:59
Canuckianpartitioning*01:59
wilee-nileeEmanon, You attract snarky comments?01:59
EmanonHmm. Thought I might have seen you in rant radio.02:00
jagginessDeucesWildCatch2, if you want a dualboot, you should install windows first,, the ubuntu install can automatically add a windows menu item to it's boot loader02:00
actionParsnipEmanon: no idea what that even is, sorry02:00
Respite212sudo pvcreate /dev/sdb1 -> "Can't open /dev/sdb1 exclusively.  Mounted filesystem?" Anyone got a solution to this?02:00
actionParsnipRespite212: is /dev/sdb1 mounted?02:00
Respite212yeah02:00
actionParsnipRespite212: then that's why02:00
overcluckerRespite212: ah that's right you have that mounted as /home right now.02:01
EmanonIt's ok it's somewhat obscure.02:01
Respite212actionParsnip: I can't unmount it either02:01
actionParsnipRespite212: you can do stuff in liveCD/USB then02:01
actionParsnipRespite212: its in use so you wont. liveCD will free the device02:02
Respite212actionParsnip: What is livecd?02:02
actionParsnipRespite212: the thing you installed the OS with, you can boot to that and get an OS that runs in RAM02:02
Respite212so I got to boot from usb?02:03
Respite212overclucker: Err, what should I do now? boot from usb and try to configure the sdb1 drive?02:05
actionParsnipRespite212: yes, it will free up the file system and you can do as you like02:05
TJ-overclucker: actionParsnip Respite212 I've read-back but missed the actual config of the system. I may be wrong, but would it be possible to put off converting sdb1 to a PV until after rebooting?02:05
farriothCould someone give me the name of a good systray volume applet without too many deps?02:05
jagginessfarrioth, maybe you can use the console's alsamixer02:06
actionParsnipfarrioth: sudo apt-get --reinstall install indicator-sound02:06
jagginessfarrioth, look for 'mixer' or 'volume' in synaptic or apt-cache search02:06
actionParsnipfarrioth: https://code.google.com/p/volti/02:07
* jagginess is tihnking farrioth is using a lightweigth windowmanager02:07
farriothjagginess: I can change volume with alsamixer, but I'd like something in the systray.02:07
farriothjagginess: Yes, openbox.02:07
actionParsnipgotta love openbox02:07
jagginessfarrioth, i'm sure there's a few.. you'll have to poke around, or maybe ask someone on #openbox02:08
jagginessfarrioth, (#linux people must know)02:08
farriothjagginess: Good idea, thanks.02:08
overcluckerTJ-: that's probably the only thing to do, since it's mounted02:09
pibarnasfarrioth: pnmixer.02:09
actionParsnipfarrioth: https://volti.googlecode.com/files/volti_0.2.3-1_all.deb   is the deb file itself02:10
TJ-overclucker: Saves a an unnecessary reboot into a live environment, with associated delays02:10

farriothactionParsnip: Thanks, I'm looking into that, need python-alsaaudio now...02:11
_MarcusMy MAC address changed because I cloned a VirtualBox machine and ran it. How do I automatically update Ubuntu's networking to make it work with my new MAC address?02:11

overcluckerRespite212: either reboot into rocovery mode or boot a live cd02:12
_Marcusyekoms: I don't think so. It's Ubuntu-related because I'm changing Ubuntu settings to work with a new MAC address. It's pretty much equal to switching out a networking card in a physical machine.02:12
farriothpibarnas: Thanks for the suggestion.02:13
yekoms_Marcus, have you tried sudo service networking restart ?02:13
Respite212overclucker: Hmmm how do I boot into recovery and once I get there, what should I do to sdb1?02:13
DeucesWildCatch2ey i found the nomodeset02:13
F0X-D1EHey there, I need some help about setting up a live CD with persistence02:13
pibarnasfarrioth: u r welcome.02:13
DeucesWildCatch2DANG...02:13
overcluckerRespite212: hold shift on boot to get to the grub menu, then select the recovery option and then select root02:14
F0X-D1ESee I need to set up the partitions so windows wont see the liveUSB partition02:14
CanuckianDeucesWildCatch2: what happened when you went with nomodeset?02:15
ElesaHi, this question is meant for Arch, but.. How do I disable wlan0's Power Management FOREVER in any Linux system? <_<02:15
F0X-D1Ebut, following the guides on the documentation on the wiki... didnt work.. kept getting boot Grub errors02:15
DeucesWildCatch2it is on a memory test now, blue screen memtest02:15
wilee-nileeF0X-D1E, an partition past the first wont be seen02:15
wilee-nileeany*02:15
ElesaI don't want to run iwconfig wlan0 power off every time I boot02:15
F0X-D1Ewilee-nilee: yes, and. I got that part but following the guides to install the live usb on a hidden or second partition didnt work02:15
Respite212overclucker: What do I do after I select root?02:16
overcluckerRespite212: the next part can be reisky if not done correctly, so I would suggest reading up on a few things before continuing.02:16
pibarnasElesa: make a boot script. like in rc.local.02:16
F0X-D1Ewilee-nilee: As I kept getting grub error 15 and error 1702:16
EmanonYou could set a script to run at boot to do it for you Elesa.02:16
F0X-D1Emoving the partition manually in gparted didnt work either, made up the same errors02:16
wilee-nileeF0X-D1E, What release of Ubuntu are you using?02:16
F0X-D1Ewilee-nilee: 12.0402:17
CookieJar┐('~`;)┌ looks like I am ignored02:17
ElesaUmm.. How would I exactly do that? I'm still new when it comes to bash stuff.02:17
DeucesWildCatch2Is is difficult to partition the machine for a triboot?  because honestly Canukian, the original owner of the lappy worked for a company that kept confidentiality very high, and that there is an open VPN tunnel. well02:17
wilee-nileeF0X-D1E, So whats the rationalization on keeping windows from seeing it?02:17
actionParsnipCookieJar: if nobody knows, nobody can answer, can they?02:17
jagginessF0X-D1E, use gparted live cd, and drag the starting point of your main linux partition over to the left or right.. (make sure "1 mb" nearest is rounded off << checkbox)02:18
F0X-D1Ewilee-nilee: I have a friend that wanted to boot from the usb, and use the usb for standard storage02:18
CookieJar<CookieJar> ok, my friend is attempting to connect to an adsl connection directly with Ubuntu, he is unable to connect and isn't provided with info to fill in the "Service" box on the connection manager window. Not sure what to do so asking for help here02:18

F0X-D1Ejagginess: I did02:18
F0X-D1Ebut02:18
F0X-D1Ejagginess: made boot errors at startup from the live usb02:18
Respite212overclucker: Would it be better if I boot from cd/usb?02:18
jagginessF0X-D1E, you'll need to re-install grub02:18
DeucesWildCatch2I just wanted an easier way to erase the hard drive, and to be honest i am not even sure I would need the partitioning although I would love to ditch windows completely at some point and figures to do taht with this lappy first.02:18
F0X-D1Ejagginess: any way to specifically do this?02:18
actionParsnipCookieJar: try the forums or wait an hour or so and reask, different users02:18
jagginessF0X-D1E, you'll need to re-install grub02:18
F0X-D1EIve seen ways of doing it on HDD02:18
jagginessF0X-D1E, grub-install /dev/<your usb head>02:19
F0X-D1Ebut, this is a LiveUSB02:19
F0X-D1Ejagginess: just that?02:19
jagginessF0X-D1E, so boot a recue environment for it02:19
mrjonwilsonHello everyone02:19
F0X-D1Ejagginess: its, a live usb..02:19
jagginessF0X-D1E, yeah it's a live usb02:19
mrjonwilsonI am wondering if I can install ubuntu in linux mint02:20
ElesaHow do I create a boot script?02:20
F0X-D1Ethere was no option for booting into recovery02:20
mrjonwilsonSo I can keep all my files and everything.02:20
jagginessmrjonwilson, virtualbox ?02:20
Elesamrjonwilson, what do you mean?02:20
F0X-D1Ei can grub-install from the terminal02:20
jagginessmrjonwilson, this is safe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtualbox02:20
F0X-D1Elet me try that maybe, maybe that will work. has to actually.02:20
mrjonwilsonjagginess, not really. I am running Mint right now, but I want Ubuntu. I don't want to lose everything.02:20
jagginessmrjonwilson, well you may lose everything, so back up your data, and use gparted live cd to resize the mint stuff to make room for ubuntu02:21
Elesamrjonwilson, do you have a separate partition for /home at least?02:21
mrjonwilsonElesa, yes. I have windoze xp and Mint dual boot.02:22
mrjonwilsonI guess the best way is to wipe the Mint partition and install Ubuntu?02:22
jagginessmrjonwilson, http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php02:22
jagginessmrjonwilson, ? no.. you dont have to..02:22
ElesaBut you have a separate partition where /home is, right? That might help lots02:23
actionParsnipgparted is on the Ubuntu CD, why do you need another CD?02:23
jagginessmrjonwilson, you can resize the mint partition with the lvie cd tool i mentioned02:23
jagginessElesa, he doesnt.. he's quite new to linux02:23
actionParsnipwhy waste another CD, you already have the app on a bootable media.....02:23
jagginessmrjonwilson, when you make at least 7 gigs free.. you can add a "ext4" partition for ubuntu02:24
mrjonwilsonthanks jagginess and elesa. I am familiar with gparted.02:24
jagginessactionParsnip, because gparted live cd has the latest gparted than any other linux distro02:24
mrjonwilsonI just wanted to see if there was a way to install ubuntu using the terminal in mint.02:24
actionParsnipjagginess: you can upgrade gparted from the liveCD to get te latest version in the repos02:25
jagginessactionParsnip, he's using mint.02:25
actionParsnipthen it's not supported here02:25
jagginessread above.02:25
jagginessnm02:25
overcluckerRespite212: The next part envolves initializing /dev/sdb1 as a physical volume, extending the volume group onto it, extending the logical volume for home, and resizing the ext4 filesystem. the two steps can damage the filesystem if done incorrectly so you should probably read up on how to do it before trying it.02:25
mikegitcan someone please tell me where I might ask a Git Question?  ... I'm trying to force manual merging (mark conflicts on ALL differenced files) to prevent automatic merging...02:26
jagginessmrjonwilson, it's up to you how you want to make space (i've never given any instruction on how to work with mint, it's not the purpose of the channel)02:26

farriothIs there a GUI tool available for editing .fonts.conf? (Not Gnome, please)02:32
mikegitfarrioth: yes but for some reason it says I can't type anything in the channel... do you know why?02:33
mikegitfarrioth:   I think it defaults everyone in #git  to not be able to type unless they have elevated permissions ...02:33
farriothmikegit: You may need to register your nick or similar.02:33
farriothmikegit: I just found the same problem in ##linux.02:34
overcluckerRespite212: that's already been done. for now it might be best to reboot to apply the /home change02:34
Respite212overclucker: We did change /home right?02:35
overcluckerRespite212: yes it should mount /dev/vol/home  onto /home when you reboot02:35
hilox02:35
Respite212overclucker: let me reboot then... brb.02:36
actionParsnipfarrioth: why do you need a GUI?02:36
farriothactionParsnip: Because I'm lazy.02:37
actionParsnipfarrioth: just copy the font into /usr/share/fonts/truetype   then run: sudo fc-cache -f -v      it's not hard in any way02:37
actionParsnipfarrioth: are you using kde?02:38
Respite212overclucker: Ok.02:38
farriothactionParsnip: No, I'm wanting to tweak hinting/antialiasing etc.  I'm using openbox, but I wouldn't object to a kde tool.02:39
actionParsnipfarrioth: ubuntu-tweak can do that02:39
Respite212overclucker: That worked, now I can sudo pvcreate /dev/sdb102:39

farriothwilee-nilee: I don't see where I'm lacking common sense. k1gwb was asking how to sudo a command without entering a password, as I understood it.03:26
DeucesWildCatch2will that also wipe any photos and stuff on that partition?03:26
wilee-nileefarrioth, Telling someone that they can run without out a password is not common sense.03:26
farriothDeucesWildCatch2: Yes, but you shouldn't/can't wipe a partition while you're running an OS from it.03:27
farriothwilee-nilee: It is if they are asking how to.03:27
DeucesWildCatch2and that is why the Livecd is being used am I right?  i was told that i needed to get into the root and begin manually delteing things.03:28

grumpyHello everyone... I hope someone knows the answer to this cause I don't. I should say that I'm new to Linux so not knowing is not a news flash. I have been working on this for 3 days now and have had no success and going crazy. I have a new DVD that plays in my DVD player in vmware running mythbuntu but it won't play in mplayer or vlc. Vlc both open and close immediately.03:39

blackshirti think for more newer chipset, download it from intel03:39
grumpyI have installed Ubuntu's restricted extras, ffmpeg, mencoder, Medibuntu repository including libdvdcss2 and bdvdnav4, lilibdvdread4, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad, and gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly. But still nothing03:40
zykotick9grumpy: have you followed the "/msg ubottu dvd" instructions?03:40
blackshirtIntel supports linux greatly03:40
cornellWell, tis time for the rack, thanks all.  TTFN03:40
zykotick9grumpy: what error does mplayer from cli give from "mplayer dvd://1"?03:40
farriothDeucesWildCatch2: So you're running Ubuntu, and you want to remove some files from /, but keep your Ubuntu install?03:40
grumpyno error with mplayer it justs opens and closes03:41
zykotick9grumpy: fyi the libdvdread4 is actually the exact same package as libdvdcss2 from medibuntu.03:41
wilee-nileegrumpy, I think we understand you are frustrated, but you are asked in the channel info to use some care in overposting. If someone knows they will answer.03:41
zykotick9grumpy: do you get text output? messages?03:41
DeucesWildCatch2yes,03:41
farriothDeucesWildCatch2: And what problem are you having doing this?03:42

DeucesWildCatch2I'm an idiot, other than that nothing.  my sister has requested that I wipe the partition and reinstal ubuntu. Problem is it has been almost 10 years since i have anything like this system i was lazy with windows. now I am trying to do as she requested..03:44
ubiquity__so how do I download the linux drivers from intel?03:45
farriothDeucesWildCatch2: Just install as you usually would, selecting the reformat parition or similar option during installation.03:46
DeucesWildCatch2I would like to learn this system and figured it would be as easy as google to learn what i need, however the first owner of this laptop had it set for a triboot and  when i tried to install the program it gave me an option to delte everything..03:46
DeucesWildCatch2oh well03:46
winstonwwho needs system32 when you have gentoo03:47
farriothDeucesWildCatch2: Did it give you an option to not delete everything, and just use a certain partition?03:47
winstonwoh dear i thought this was #defocus. forgive me.03:47
DeucesWildCatch2yes it did it was the third option03:48
farriothDeucesWildCatch2: You'll want to chose that option, and it should ask you whether you want to keep the partition as is, or reformat it.03:49
Laurelaiok im trying to remix an ubuntu live cd and change the firefox default webpage and was directed to try #firefox i did that and they really couldnt help because ubuntu modifies firefox too much (so they said) so how do i change the global default webpage for firefox03:49

Respite212Jordan_U yeah... how many logical volumes I need in a volume group?04:35
Jordan_URespite212: You can create as many as you want. The minimum that would be at all useful is of course 1, but the way you asked the question makes me think that you might be confused about what Logical Volumes and Volume Groups are.04:36
Respite212Jordan_U: Im brushing up on LVM... actually started on a little hard drive lvm'ing that I haven't managed to complete yet. So still reading up on the "how to's04:37

LedHedI'm trying to mound a Multipath device (/dev/mapper/mpath0-part1) at boot (added it to my fstab) but the mount fails. Is there a way to make sure the device mapper service runs before fstab?04:46
Respite212LedHed: Im new to linux, but if you think about it logically, there has to be a reason the mount fails, are there any incompatibility issues with your device mapper?04:49
Respite212LedHed: This includes all your other mounts in fstab.04:49
LedHedRespite212, other mounts work fine. I think its because the DM-multipath runs and creates the device maps after fstab is processed04:50

LedHedI created a custom theme for a company a few years ago as part of an LTSP deployment04:53
Respite212LedHed: you might want to ask again then, because I am not 100% sure how fstab is processed or if it is even possible to get multipaths to run before fstab.04:53
syntaxxLedHed, because the encryption part of the ubuntu 12.04 is just a plain text04:53

syntaxxLedHed, thanks for it. I already changed the boot splash screen on the plain ubuntu install. But trying the encrypted one I dont seem to find any help from google or maybe i dont know what it is called04:57
LedHedsyntaxx, what do you mean the "encrypted one"04:57
syntaxxLedHed, when you install ubuntu and you use full encryption it will ask you a passphrase when it boots up. that what i am looking for04:58

kunjiHey everyone, I was just wondering what the best way to make a linux Access Point with Ubuntu, I've started down the route of using hostadp with dnsmasq, and using a masquerade in iptables, is this pretty much the only way to go, or is there something else I should check out?05:40
lotuspsychjeis there a package to see whats wrong with a network?05:40

lotuspsychjefarrioth:i mean like wrong cables and such05:41
ibraheemsomsip: how can I access the log ?05:41
farriothibraheem: It's just a regular file, you can view it with less or something.05:41
kunjilotuspsychje: there is not a full app, but you can use ping, ethtool, iperf, iwconfig, iw, and many others, what exactly do you want to check?05:41
somsipibraheem: you just posted the path05:41
farriothlotuspsychje: ifconfig may also help05:41
kunjilotuspsychje: for cables, iperf should work well, it's a speed test really, but if you're getting the speeds the cable is rated for, then it's highly unlikely that the cable would be bad05:42
lotuspsychjekunji: a network with modem--powerline adapter--linksys wifi got problems connecting to ssh05:42

lotuspsychjekunji:external nmap scan shows ports open05:43
ibraheemsomsip: ok !05:43
kunjilotuspsychje: my initial guess would be noise on the power lines, have you tried running a cable over instead and see if that works, at least then you can narrow down where to look.05:43
lotuspsychjekunji:apowerline can block ssh u think?05:44
kunjilotuspsychje: not the line itself, I thought you mean connectivity issues over ssh (was thinking noisy line), but if you mean it's just straight up not working, well, the adapters to the powerlines could possibly block ssh05:45

BlueWolfHow can I get my ubuntu 12.04 interface to look like ubuntu 10.04?07:33
somsip!nounity | BlueWolf07:33
ubottuBlueWolf: Ubuntu 11.10 and higher use GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic07:33
smw!classic | BlueWolf07:33
ubottuBlueWolf: The default interface in Ubuntu 11.04 is !Unity. To switch back to regular !GNOME: log out, click your username, click the Session box at the bottom of the screen, and select "Ubuntu Classic". For 11.10, see !notunity07:33

dmh654zykotick9:  whats the easiest way to generate a xorg.conf file plz12:40
mnicewell .. haha .. unity is segfaulting http://susepaste.org/view/raw/15363943 in Xvnc .. poor .. well, that it won't run with opengl is expectable but segfaulting is funny ... unity-2d-shell runs some nonsense .. how can i run unity session in vnc ?12:40
zykotick9mnice: you want to run a 3d gui across a network?  good luck with that...12:41
syreisnt /etc/rc.local supposed to run commands in it at startup? maybe its related to the "xset m 0 0" only works when X has started?12:41
ThinkT510mnice: i don't think vnc like compositing12:41
jribsyre: yes12:42
syrejrib: to both? ;)12:42
jribsyre: yes :)  You probably want that in your ~/.xprofile12:42
zykotick9dmh654: it requires logging in from a VT (which you can't do for some reason?  it also requires sudo, which i'll guess you also can't use).  i can't help.12:42
syrejrib: ah! thanks12:42
mnicezykotick9 & ThinkT510 .. oh god .. NO I DO NOT .. reread please12:42
OerHeksdmh654, Boot Ubuntu in the Recovery mode and choose for >> root     Drop to root shell prompt  and type:  Xorg -configure12:43
mnicei would like to run unity in 2d (without compositing|opengl)12:43
jribsyre: depending on how you login exactly, ~/.xsession, ~/.xinitrc, and ~/.config/autostart/ are other possibilities12:43
syrejrib: hrrrm standard lightdm with gnome classic?12:44
mnicelike for example kde automatically detects the capability of given output and runs themselves either with opengl on or off12:44
jribsyre: then ~/.xprofile or a .desktop file in ~/.config/autostart/ (this is what's used by the gui for creating startup applications) should work12:44
syrejrib: ~/.xprofile it is then, thanks alot12:45
zykotick9OerHeks: isn't it "X -configure  :1"12:48
zykotick9OerHeks: the :1 only being required if x is running.12:48
OerHekszykotick9, i showed him the way to recovery, safest method i think, besides his password doesn't work somehowe12:50
zykotick9OerHeks: i'm just concerned about the X vs Xorg (hopefully Xorg works)12:50
zykotick9OerHeks: i consulted the man page Xorg is correct as well :)12:51

HunterTHello, I am new to Linux Ubuntu but am already starting to learn the command-line and how to install / uninstall packages etc. Although, I like keeping my files/programs organized and Ubuntu's directory structure confuses me. Could someone please tell me what the main folder is where packages/programs are supposed to be (as the norm)13:46
fidel_as window-grouping is afaik not app-specific13:46
fidel_HunterT: do you know the 'which' cmd?13:46
k1lHunterT: just use the paket-managment to install programs. dont start fiddeling on yourself13:47
HunterTnope fidel_13:47
HunterTSo use Synaptic Package Manager?13:47
HunterTwhere does it put most installed packages?13:47
fidel_HunterT: which firefox // as a example13:47

HunterTI use apt-get all of the time.. but lets say I want to install NetBeans.. what directory would you guys install it?13:47
Guest87183jeaton i don't.13:48
m000gleIs there any way to remove the message, in the Nautilus window, stating things like "This volume contains digital photos - Open Shotwell Photo Manager"?13:48
jeatonwhat do you use in replace of it?13:48
fidel_HunterT: as a sidenote - you really dont need to mess with that - trust in the lovely package-management - at the end there is not really a need to know where the executable of app XY is usualy13:48
k1lHunterT: its not the ubuntu way to download stuff from webpages and install it. its the ubuntu way to use the repos or PPAs13:48
Guest87183I tried Gnome3 but didn't work too well jeaton13:48
HunterTfidel_ thanks that makes me feel better, but what about programs like NetBeans that have to be manually downloaded and installed?13:48
k1l!notunity | jeaton13:48
ubottujeaton: Ubuntu 11.10 and higher use GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic13:48
fidel_HunterT: well thats specific to the app - but installing apps from outside official apps isnt that common as apt provides most apps anways13:49
Guest87183jeaton I use GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel".13:49
HunterTSo the norm for Ubuntu is to just always download from repos or PPAs and let the tools automatically handle things.13:49
HunterTWhat IDE would you guys recommend using for Symfony 2 development?13:49

somsipHunterT: given recent bug issues, openjde/jdk. Can;t say I've had any probs with it. And Netbeans, but I don't use Symfony so I'm not sure of the support for that13:52
Guest87183Guest87183 laggyness. it takes a good couple of seconds for the gnome window to appear. and the rest is just pure preference, do not like the dock style, and the zillion of ppa's you have to install for every applet, it used to be that with gnome panel, they come preloaded and a drag and drop will get applets onto your panel13:52

Hatorisachiru, maybe some web based to administer them,and there are some gui too14:07
Guest87183fidel_ couldn't get more commandliny on this chat eh..14:08
fidel_Ririshi: a bnc is usualy an app which keeps on irc-commention permanently alive. you as user connent with your irc client to that bounce. which usualy runs on a 24h available server14:08
fidel_Ririshi: as a result - you/your session is always in the irc-chan you like14:08
Ririshifidel_: cool! how do I get such a thing to work?14:09
fidel_Ririshi: in case you have access to a server - the combination: screen & irssi is a lovely small solution for that14:09
momin90909where can i get drivers for intel graphics14:09
fidel_Ririshi: as always- decide which app you want to use-  read its docs and install/setup it14:09
ShapeShifter499Hatori, do you know?14:09
Hatorisachiru, but maybe better you sit on cli mode ... A gui would consume your ram14:09
ThinkT510momin90909: they are in the kernel by default, you don't need to get them14:10
Hatorishapeshifter499, know what? Sorry,14:10
ShapeShifter499Hatori, does it matter if I have lib32 and lib ?   will my system look in both places?    lib32 only appeared after using getlibs14:10
ShapeShifter499that would be in /usr btw14:10
Ririshifidel_: I'll search around a bit.14:10
Hatorishapeshifter499, i think that was not a problem14:11
RirishiOne more problem: always when using ', I have to press spacebar before it appears, or it appears on top of the next letter like this: ḿ ś í ḱ14:11
RirishiOr it just doesn't appear..\14:11
Hatorishapeshifter499, look if it was symlink to each other14:11

Masta123Hi everyone. I have VMWare Workstation 9 with an Ubuntu Virtual Machine. This morning some VMWare services no longer wanted to start, so I had to reinstall VMWare. Now VMWare works again, but my Ubuntu Virtual Machine no longer has network access. I checked the config and the VM is configured to use NAT as network adapter. If I do an ifconfig in Ubuntu it has an 192.168.228.137 IP address, but in the VMWare config I find 192.168.21615:10
Masta123So my question now is: should I fix this in my VMWare Config or in the Ubuntu config? (and how? :p )15:11

wilee-nileeArcaneWater, I keep my OS in small partition, but big enough so I can clone them for any future problems.16:57
ArcaneWaterwilee-nilee and what about others for swap etc?16:59
wilee-nileeArcaneWater, for example on a 160 gig HD I have 4 OS the W7 in a 40 gig and the others since they are linux a bit smaller and a NTFS to share with the W& and linux install 4 partitions, the ntfs for windows and share are primary partitions the other 3 are logicals in a extended.16:59
gordonjcpwilee-nilee: be really careful sharing NTFS partitions with Linux16:59
M1R4G3yeah you're right17:00
gordonjcpwilee-nilee: the lack of case sensitivity will cause some deeply strange things to happen when you least expect it17:00
wilee-nileegordonjcp, why it is a stand alone I have never had a problem I don't read an write in the windows only the shared.17:00
wilee-nileegordonjcp, I see what you mean I don't edit windows from linux.17:01
wilee-nileeArcaneWater,  I use a swap in the OS that adjust with needs, I don't hibernate so this works for me a normal swap would be equal to the ram at the least.17:02
wilee-nileebasically unless you had like 8 gigs of swap and never really used it, it is for hibernate primarily, unless you are using up the ram while using the OS.17:03

giteshgordonjcp, I have broken my network manager on ubuntu 12.04 LTS desktop17:53
TheLordOfTimeMrokii, is it just saying there's no file, or is it having a major breakage therein, where it stops working altogether for everything else?17:53
TJ-Mrokii: OK, let me work some more on it17:53
jribTJ-, Mrokii: mysql-server-5.1: /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.mysqld    on a lucid server17:53

crazydipFanshawe: if you are not on 12.04 then you should upgrade - also in case you need a newer version that is not in the repo you may want to look into the xorg ppa on launchpad18:02

wilee-nileeklaxtr, So it looks like you have a boot partition for ubuntu not needed but thats okay, the boot flag is not needed there but actually on the sda1 for the windows install and use.  Just use the custom install in the windows install to use the sda1.  You also have a sda5 unknown is this a swap and is this all encrypted?18:05
klaxtrit is a swap18:06
FanshaweI think I've found the problem. I need to install wacom-tools.18:06
FanshaweBut it is not in any of my repos?18:06
wilee-nileeklaxtr, Actually the sda2 is to big for a boot, so just move the flag to sda1, and you should be okay, The swap is showing as unknow is this due to a encryoted setuo?18:07
wilee-nileeencrypted*18:07
klaxtrhow can i know that?... to know if its encrypted18:07
klaxtrsda2 is for OS, in any case i want to try some othe distro18:09
wilee-nileeklaxtr, You would know if you encrypted it, it is a extra process to do that. I would remake the swap by just clicking on it and remake the swap, do not delete it first as it will change the partition number.18:09

tozenhaiQt, the best way to how to install ubuntu properly is to chose installation option "Something else"20:37
k1gwbIs it obvious to anyone what I am doing wrong? This is from my /etc/fstab. When I mount -a it says "Line 12 is bad" which is this: //192.168.1.100/G\ Drive /home/greg/G-Drive cifs credentials=/home/greg/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,noauto,rw 0 020:37
crazydiphow do i send packages build in Launchpad to debian upstream? i have been asked to do so by a debian maintainer20:37
wilee-nileehaiQt, WE define drive as a hard drive the picture you show is on one HD and would split it. If you want these installs an seperate HD's you need to use the something other option a manual install.20:38
michealPWhaiQt: You're doing fine. That's the partition resize utility... You're resizing an existing hard-drive partition and creating free-space that can be used to create a second partition.20:38
mschrklgwb missing option parameter '_netdev' which will delay mount until network is up20:38
michealPWhaiQt: The partition on the left side is your existing partition, likely the one with Windows on it. The partition on the right isn't created yet, it's the free-space that will be created once you shrink that partition.20:39
haiQtoh okay, that's easy then20:39
haiQtwhy can't i do it that way? it seems it's frowned upon or something?20:39
wilee-nileehaiQt, Do youn have the windows backed up?20:39
wilee-nileeyou*20:40
haiQtnot really but it's a fresh install (formatted yesterday)20:40
haiQtbut i'd rather not have to go through installing all adobe apps & IDE's again20:40
haiQttakes a while20:40
michealPWhaiQt: One thing I would suggest, though.. Is use Windows to resize your Windows partitions, not Ubuntu.20:40
michealPWEsp. if you're using WIndows 7 or WIndows 8.20:41
wilee-nileehaiQt, You should always be backed up that install had a lot of updates, if something goes wrong you will have to do it again.20:41
k1gwbSorry, closed in error, if anyone said anything about the mount line in my fstab :/20:41
haiQtok so the safest thing to do right now is to go back into windows and create a small partition (around 15-20GB) to install ubuntu on?20:41
mrhubrisjeAre there any good DNS alternatives out there in comparisson to my ISP's?20:42
michealPWWindows 7's Storage snap-in can resize ("Shrink") a volume very well. Use that to shrink your volume and create some free-space, say 100gb. Then restart the computer with your USB Ubuntu LIveCD and install Ubuntu to that free-space. Ubuntu should find it and use it automatically.20:42
abaraticanWhere would I put a line to autostart a program when X starts?  (before logging in)20:42
michealPWmrhubrisje: There's openDNS (Search google) but as far as "better", if by "better" you mean speed you wont find anything faster than your current ISP's DNS server, I would imagine :P20:43
michealPWSince your ISP's going to assign one based on your geographic location.20:43
k1gwbmrhubrisje: google has some public dns servers, there's also 4.2.2.2 and 4.2.2.1 which are good20:43
mrhubrisjeI found Comodo, Open DNS and Google DNS. but i'm wondering if they are any that i can trust with my "behaviour"20:44

michealPWoverclucker: Hrmm so.. If / is say 20gb and /home is 80gb.. If /home reaches 80gb, / is still fine and the OS is bootable without problems?21:16
michealPWoverclucker: Is that what you mean?21:16
diverdudethx21:16
jribdiverdude: note mschr's command also copies your private key which you may not want21:17
overcluckermichealPW: yup21:17
michealPWI see..21:17
michealPWTouche.. Good argument :P21:17
michealPWI find a lot of times my / is ballooning in size far faster than /home 'cause I install everything I find that sounds interesting on Ubuntu Software Center (rofl)21:18
eilyxwhy is the gui updater app showing me kernel updates when the apt-get upgrade is telling me it's holding packages back21:18
jribeilyx: kernel won't get upgraded unless you do: apt-get dist-upgrade21:19
michealPWI set aside 200gb for my entire, single-partition / though21:19
jrib!dist-upgrade | eilyx21:19
ubottueilyx: A dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.21:19
michealPWSo I don't think I'll have any capacity issues 'cause I use WIndows for Gaming, which has 1.3tb hehe!21:19
overcluckermichealPW: also, /usr and /var can become filled up easily so separate partitions for those is also popular21:19
eilyxjrib, no that is not a dist upgrade it is the update manager that is tellingme i have packages waiting21:20
michealPWoverclucker: So that answers my question about freeBSD.. When I tried freeBSD (Admittedly awhile ago now..) it strongly encouraged me to create a whole bunch of partitions21:20
jribeilyx: right, so install the kernel upgrade if you want it.  If you prefer to use the command-line, then do « apt-get dist-upgrade »21:20
michealPWWhich I did. It was just easier to do what it said than try to go against the current haha21:20
michealPWI never knew the benefit, though21:21
eilyxjust what is a dist-upgrade21:21
jribeilyx: read what ubottu said21:21
michealPWBesides scalability. I think it would be neat to be able to swap-in/out drives, having the system's filesystem seperated the way it is I think that wouldn't be too difficult21:21
michealPWWith the windows-style it would be a real chore haha21:21
shwaiilQ: I've installed a program on /opt and I want to create a shortcut on the left sidebar of unbuntu 12.04, how to do that ? Tks21:22
eilyxjrib, how is a kernel update considered a dist-upgrade?21:22
michealPWI don't understand why some Linux distros like Fedora have a /run/media/username and populate userland-filesystems in there while debian and ubuntu use a /media.21:23
bekksshwaiil: Start the program, it will have an icon on the left panel, the right click on that panel, and select "Lock to launcher".21:23
jribeilyx: the way a new kernel is delivirede is by changing the dependency of the "linux-image-generic" package.  Apt-get won't install packages because of a changed dependency unless you issue a "dist-upgrade"21:23
michealPWAlso the /usr is different in a lot of different linux systems. Crazytown!21:23
michealPWIt plays awful games with my poor memory ;(21:23
trismshwaiil: create a .desktop file for the app in /usr/share/applications/ (bekks, that won't help without a .desktop file)21:23
shwaiilbekks:  thanks a lot for looking! I really appreciate it21:23
shwaiiltrism: tks for looking. A .desktop file ?! :Z21:23
bekkstrism: I never created a .desktop file when locking applications to the launcher.21:24
eilyxjrib, oh ok. thanks21:24
trismbekks: they won't stick if the app doesn't have one21:24
shwaiilbekks: after restarting the icon is still there ? cool21:25
shwaiilin my other laptop I had a different version of ubuntu, older and its much better, this new one sucks 12.0421:25
shwaiiltop left corner I used to have applications etc21:25
bekksshwaiil: trism is right, you need a .desktop file. I just checked it, and apparently all apps I locked have .desktop file :)21:25
shwaiil:I21:26
thesebhow remove NUMBERING from my unity icons?21:27
thesebI don't know what happened but now my trash can has a "t"21:28
theseband my other icons have "1", "2", "3", etc.21:28
trismshwaiil: if you check out the ones already in that directory you should get the general idea, or if you have gnome-panel install you can use gnome-desktop-item-edit to create one21:29
theseblemmie see if log out will fix21:29
shwaiilwhy did they make this so difficult21:30

paoloumalihelp guys, which channel is for aws  ubuntu stuff?21:33
crazydipmichealPW: i personally like the official Linux Directory Hierarchy Standard - and I *love* this simple LDHS graph reference: http://imagebin.org/23143021:34

paoloumalican i ask web server questions here?21:35
crazydippaoloumali: i believe this is your channel to ask21:35
paoloumaliok, default root in ubuntu ec2 instance is ubuntu and im setting up a web server lamp21:36
paoloumaliwhat's best practice? create my own account?21:36
=== vjn_ is now known as vjn
paoloumaliif i create a user account, should i ssh with that user account, or its just the same if i log in with root, then login as the user?21:37
michealPWcrazydip: I don't understand the difference between /usr/local/bin and /opt/bin21:37
michealPW:(21:37
crazydippaoloumali: yes, you should create an account, then after checking if it works, disable root ssh login21:38
paoloumaliif i disable the root, then who will be able to do admin tasks then?21:38
michealPW/opt/ is a rarely (Well I guess not rarely, but in the distros that I use it's rare) structure it seems. To me /opt/ makes sense, its optional software.. To me /usr/bin doesn't make sense 'cause what software is multi-user like that really?!21:38
crazydippaoloumali: what you are after server security - whether aws or not it's all the same21:38
michealPWI mean, what software would need /usr/michealpw/bin and /usr/crazydip/bin haha I don't get it? :\21:39
crazydippaoloumali: i did not say disable root, i said disable ssh root login21:39
zykotick9michealPW: one difference.  thins in /usr/local/bin are supported in #ubuntu, things in /opt are not ;)21:39
michealPWzykotick9: Hah! Interesting..21:39
jpdspaoloumali: Root isn't enabled on Ubuntu anyway.21:39
paoloumaliI see. so the best practice is just use a user account and then sudo when needed21:39
jpdspaoloumali: Yes.21:39
paoloumalibut for user to do sudo21:40
overcluckermichealPW: http://www.pathname.com/fhs/21:40
paoloumalihe mush have that right21:40
jpdspaoloumali: Yes.21:40
paoloumaliadding him in admin group21:40
paoloumaliautomatically add him to sudoers?21:40
jpdspaoloumali: Now 'sudo' group.21:40
michealPWThx, overclucker ;)21:41
paoloumaliwhen i add him in sudo group: he will be like admin when he sudoes then21:41
crazydipjpds: are you sure it's not  enabled in aws? some providers enable root in ubuntu server21:41
michealPWHow does Fedora use su -c 'yum intall somePackage'? I tried on Ubuntu and that doesn't work, I need to use sudo? :\21:41
michealPWConfusing haha21:41
michealPWsu -c seems to log-in as Root temporarily..21:41
crazydipjpds: nevermind, i just found out it's disabled but sudo is apparently passwordless21:41
michealPWSudo iunno wth's going on 'cause I enter my own user's pw :\21:42
jpdscrazydip: It's not.21:42
zykotick9michealPW: simple rule, don't use su on ubuntu21:42
michealPWhaha zykotick9. I know, but I want to learn :P21:42
zykotick9michealPW: also if you looking for info on directories "man hier" for some info21:42
michealPWWhy's the difference, really? On Fedora I added my user to the sudoers file so I could sudo like I do on Ubuntu haha21:42
michealPW'cause that way my wife could just type her password in to do things instead of also remembering root's pw ;)21:43
ziggyzeroHi. Does anybody know of a DLNA server that runs from CLI?21:43
crazydipmichealPW: and just for the record, there is not such thing as /usr/<username>/bin - just /usr/bin and /usr/local/bin :D21:44
michealPWhaha21:44
michealPWThat's why /usr doesnt' make sense to me though21:44

shwaiilQ: I've got a Killer Wirless-n 1102 installed automatically by ubuntu 12.04 LTS. My connection drops at least twice or more every 20m. I'm wondering if there's a way to fix this ? Thanks! I'm 5m from the router21:47
shwaiiland this wireless device is supposed to be "good" :P at least was expensive21:47
crazydipshwaiil: it may be the router settings - i had something similar it had something to do with a stupid outdated router check that was used for backward compatibility with windows, but i don't remember what exactly21:49
zykotick9hdon: fyi if you create a ~/bin and logout/backin it will automatically be added to your PATH21:49

ceed^is it possible to set it so that you toggle minimized and open when you click a program icon in the dash? The only thing that happens now is that the program is given focus, but when you click again nothing happens.21:59

bigbillyes I have putty open in another window now22:12
ISTguy15do you guys know how to make an ubuntu deployment server that can deploy windows and linux22:12
crazydipbigbill: setup ssh server (sshd) on the ubuntu file server and you can login from wherever you want, so long as you have network access to it (internet)22:13
gordonjcpbigbill: you'd need to open a port on the firewall in your office, to allow you to ssh22:13
bigbillI can access from within the lan, but how to I access it from outside the lan?22:13
gordonjcpbigbill: or if you feel brave, set up a VPN22:13
gordonjcpbigbill: look up port forwarding22:14
ISTguy15bigbill: you need to go into ur router and port foward ur ip with port number 22 (if that is ur ssh port)22:14
ISTguy15the default is port 22 for ssh22:14
ISTguy15have any of you guys played with ubuntu 12.1022:15
ISTguy15i dont really see too many changes except for the kernel update22:15
bigbillOk so open a port on the router then I can see my ubuntu box? What security upgrades should I look into?22:16
=== Snake is now known as tpe
ISTguy15can you elaborate on that more what do you mean by security upgrades22:16
crazydipISTguy15: news items on 12.10 changes: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/tag/quantal22:16
ISTguy15thanks crazydip ill check into it22:17
crazydipbigbill: port forwarding explained: http://www.howtogeek.com/66214/how-to-forward-ports-on-your-router/22:17
bigbillwell i don't want someone to hack into the system. so what should I do as far as security?22:18
ISTguy15change ur default ssh port to something else then foward that port, give ur system a static ip (internal of course), and make a complex password22:18
ISTguy15then you should be good22:19
ISTguy15thats all the security you should need22:19
bigbillok, cool, thanks for the help22:19
ISTguy15yep22:19
gordonjcpISTguy15: you don't need to change your ssh port22:19
gordonjcpbigbill: leave your default ssh port alone, it'll only confuse matters22:20
ISTguy15if u change the ssh port then people wont find it out as easy22:20
ISTguy15the default ssh port is 2222:20
gordonjcpISTguy15: yes, but you don't need to change it on the server22:20
=== jill is now known as Guest70379
crazydipbigbill: from most secure to least secure 1) don't port forward, setup a VPN instead (lots of work) or 2) port forward and setup ssh key's and don't allow password logins (little work) or 3) make sure you have a crazy good password (least work). of course #3 should still be pretty darn secure22:20
gordonjcpjust set something else as the external port when you forward it22:20
ISTguy15you dont but you can change it for better security22:20
ISTguy15he was looking for a way to be most secure22:20
gordonjcpISTguy15: it makes no difference to the security22:20
gordonjcpISTguy15: it's a bad idea to use anything other than the standard SSH port on the server22:21
ISTguy15you have to know the port number to access ssh through ssh22:21
crazydipbigbill: don't change your ssh port, it makes no difference to security since a simple scan will reveal you changed it anyway22:21
gordonjcpISTguy15: it *does* help to forward it to an "unusual" port on the WAN-facing side of the router22:21
ISTguy15yea but u have to put more effort into the scan22:21
gordonjcpcrazydip: eh, I've found it quietens things down a bit22:21
gordonjcpcrazydip: it keeps the really lazy skript kiddies out22:22
crazydipgordonjcp: aye22:22
Don__lol22:22
bigbillright, a port sniffer is a pretty basic intrusion tool, a vpn sounds like fun, but would probably take away from my real work too much22:22
ISTguy15you could scan me and find none of my ports because my network firewall stops you22:22
ISTguy15linux is powre! :)22:22
gordonjcpbigbill: it's not actually that hard, particularly if you use pptp22:22
gordonjcppptp isn't massively secure22:23
gordonjcpit's "good enough" but if someone is suitably determined they can probably find a way in22:23
crazydipgordonjcp, bigbill : if you intend to use password on server, a much better option than changing port is to setup fail2ban22:23
ISTguy15thats a lot more involved a strong password will be good enough22:23
gordonjcpyup22:23
gordonjcpbigbill: tbh if you were using pptp and I wanted to crack my way into your network22:24
bigbillso a failed password attempts bans that ip?22:24
crazydipbigbill: yes, and you set how many failed attempts and for how long the ban lasts22:24
Num83rGuyI have a D-Link DWL 520 wireless card that is recognized but has no MAC address and receives no stations. Could anyone help?22:24
bigbillcool22:24
ISTguy15wow i didn't know about that i might get that22:24
gordonjcpbigbill: I'd probably eschew actually fiddling around spoofing my way into your pptp vpn, and simply bundle you into the back of a van and apply a length of hydraulic hose to the soles of your feet, repeatedly ;-)22:24
ISTguy15fail2ban22:24
gordonjcpthis is generally accepted as the most effective route to gain access to any network22:25
ISTguy15its actually not hard to get into a pptp vpn22:25

k1lmagdy1: install the nvidia driver from the package-system?22:39
k1lmagdy1: easiest one is to start "jockey" and klick on the nvidia driver22:40
ISTguy15_alpha_:  you can try to reinstall the X windows layer of the OS. I think it may be corrupt22:40
magdy1package-system = ubuntu software system22:40
magdy1or mot22:40
_alpha_I tried purging xserver-xorg and then reinstalling that and ubuntu-desktop22:41
_alpha_do I need to do some other packages as well?22:41

justme_i had alot of problems with ubuntu turns out i installed x32 and i have a x64 board now all works great since i installed x6422:43
schultza@_alpha_, who is the owner (user:group) of the file .Xauthority in the user who's graphic session is crashing?22:43
OdraHow do you pronounce ubuntu?22:43
_alpha_schultza: seems to be root owned, should it be owned by the user?22:43
magdy1ok i will see this page and will ty to fix if any problem take place i will ask you to help me22:43
ISTguy15his error report doesn't say he doesn't have permission so it may be just his account since he can get it with guest22:44

BlackNarcissusHello everyone. I am using 12.04 on an Acer Aspire Netbook with Radeon HD 6290 graphics, I tried everything, different distros, proprietary drivers, free ones, but I can't get flash and html5 videos to play in fulscreen decently in any browser. Any help would be extremely welcome. Thanks.22:44
_alpha_hmm on this machine it is owned by the user, I'll try switching that22:44
magdy1but i want say all my problem is i canot make nvidia recommend active22:44
magdy1not install drive22:45
schultza@_alpha_: Yes22:45
schultza@_alpha_, $ chown user:user .Xauthority22:45

SirSkidmorewoops22:46
k1lmagdy1: do you have a error message? or which exact card that is? is this a hybrid card (a intel and a nvidia)22:46
_alpha_it works!22:46
ISTguy15i think it should be root owned because mine is22:46
magdy1nvidia22:47
_alpha_I'm in now with that fixed, thanks both22:47
_alpha_that must have got messed up by one of my earlier attempts22:47
ISTguy15nice to see u online22:47
schultza /ʊˈbuːntʊ/ (using IPA) is how you pronounce ubuntu22:47
_alpha_found something online that suggested running startx from the recovery console (as root), guess that was a bad idea22:47
_alpha_and is it true that nvidia optimus is the root cause of all problems?22:48
_alpha_as it's causing me some grief on this machine22:48
schultza_alpha_, thats what i did.. and how i corrected it after hours of research22:48
magdy1Sorry, installation of this driver failed.22:48
magdy1Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log22:48
magdy1this is error message22:48
* Simbaa anyone knows free shell provider on this network ?22:48
k1l_alpha_: dont use startx on ubuntu22:48
