questionescot > where can i find that mime type db?01:13
mickster04Rustyblade3: you have the same sources listed twice01:13
TheDifferentTurrnongoogle yes I can I use a wifi adapter. The computer I'm trying to connect has a NetGear Wireless Card, and the network I'm trying to connect it to is a WPA2 personal01:13
mickster04Rustyblade3: that won't help[01:14
nongoogledo you use the current 12.10 ubuntu?01:14
questionescott where is this mime type db located?01:14
TheDifferentTurrErr...I use Lubuntu, but I've heard from everyone that connecting to the network is the same on both. And I use 12.10 Lubuntu01:15
nongooglei just had to select my wireless service when ubuntu got installed01:15
nongoogleoh ok01:15
nongooglei just clicked on the wedge icon and selected my network01:15
TheDifferentTurrthe Lubuntu chat isn't very responsive...01:15

ZalHi. I'm running "apt-get upgrade -y" in a script. Until today, it worked fine, but today it is prompting (see http://bpaste.net/show/xQUhXWNFR019nMn4qYoO/ ). Why is it prompting, and how can I get it to stop?01:24
ZalI've tried setting dpkg options to ignore the one package, but that just gives me other prompts about removing deprecated packages. I've also tried adding an environment variable for non-interactive apt, which also has no effect.01:25

TandyUKubuntu desktop 12.04.1 x64 refuses to boot.. downloaded the iso twice, md5sum'd it, and verrified the disc the second time02:24
escottshoopdewoop, unless someone has written a device mapper driver of some kind (which they probably havent bothered to) the SSD and smart response will not work in linux. Its possible that you can just bypass it and go straight to sda with linux and leave windows to talk through SRT, or it might be that doing so completely corrupts both disks02:25

jbeattyafter a couple of hours of use, the filesystem dies and thinks it's read-only and will barely respond to anything (even bash completion doesn't work). Programs in RAM stay running though.

rccola329Hello all, would anyone happen to know why my hard drive wouldn't be detected by ubuntus system installer?04:27
Tecani like to move it move it04:27
dr_willisrccola329:  allready using 4 primary partitions. or on a raid controller is common issues04:28
=== Guest71528 is now known as Adeel
rccola329Its a single partition that has windows 7 installed that I am attempting to install over, and most linux installers do not detect my hdd, but all windows installers do.04:29
=== Adeel is now known as Guest95405
rccola329I use the same cd/iso on my laptop it detects hdd as expected04:29
rccola329this pc has acted this way with all linux distros since I first got the pc in 09 maybe 10'04:30
dr_willissounds like a controller isue. but no idea on a fix04:32
rccola329is that related to the motherboard? or the actual IDE cable?04:33
dr_willisssee if the live cds can mount the hd.04:33
rccola329good idea.04:33
dr_willisis it ide or sata,04:33
rccola329its old its ide i believe I havent opened it up in a while though04:33
dr_willisearly sata i recall had some bios settings i had to mess with04:34
=== marvin is now known as Guest15434
rccola329alright I'll check out the livecd mounting and look around the bios. the pc can load up the full live system i do know that04:35
dr_willispartition it by hand then start the installer perhaps04:37
rccola329the bios has an option ATA/IDE Mode <Enhanced (Native)> and Legacy, think legacy should be enabled?04:37
dr_willishard to tell  try them both04:38
rccola329Problem with partitioning it by hand is that I cant do it from outside of windows unless im installing windows04:38
n0sqhmm, i think i need to flash my DVD firmware on my XPS since it's not reading some double layer dvd's (other drives read the dvd's) but i can't find any firmware upgrades04:38

dr_willisrccola329: use gparted on live cd04:39

selitedr_willis: But it has to accept an argument.04:54
dr_willishittt: seeral settings and 3rd party tweak tools exist04:55

heoyeaselite: use functions instead of alias04:56

tom_As I said before, it just comes back when I reboot04:57
seliteheoyea: What functions?04:57
dr_willisbash has a function feature04:57

dr_willishittt: depends on what you want to change04:58
hittt... everything04:58
heoyeaselite: example, nameiwant() {echo hello ;}04:58
seliteheoyea: I hope you aren't misunderstanding the question, I don't want to write C code to do this, I just want some kind of a tweak so that 'rn fileName' will compile and run fileName.04:58
dr_willishittt: thats vague.04:58
hittti seriously want to change everything, system font, the way the taskbar works, the position of it, the window manager04:59
seliteheoyea: I type that in terminal, it fails.04:59
hitttliterally everything04:59
dr_willisselite: a read of the abs guide will show you04:59
heoyeaselite: add it to ur bashrc04:59
dr_willishittt:  use the source  then i guess04:59
heoyeatom_: pkill only kills the gui, not the command line process i dont think05:00
seliteheoyea: How do I do that, I mean I don't know where bashrc.txt is located.05:00
hitttdr_willis: im not really in the mood of touching the source, i just need access to the preferences and that 3rd party thingy05:00
heoyeaselite: in ur home folder, hit ctrl+h05:00
dr_willisselite:   its   .bashrc05:00
tom_heoyea -- I know. I also killed dpkg, synaptic, etc. ... It just comes back next time I reboot though05:00

seliteheoyea: Nothing is wrong except the code that you provided. Considering there is a syntax error.05:08

tucemiuxJordan_U,  the current ubuntu install has the remix look and feel instead of good old gnome05:14
dr_willisold gnome?  you mean gnome 2?05:14
Jordan_Uselite: What heoyea gave you *was* incorrect, but when you repeated it, saying "I added 'nameiwant() { echo hello; }' and it didn't work." what you posted was actually correct :) If you use exactly 'nameiwant() { echo hello; }' it will work :)05:15
tucemiuxdr_willis, ideally gnome 3 but ubuntu now has by default the remix gui - I can't use that - I have to use gnome - how do I install gnome?05:15
tucemiux== without hosing the current install ==05:15
seliteJordan_U: Perfect, now, help me achieve this 'rn fileName' will do this 'javac hello.java' and then 'java hello'?05:16

heoyeaselite: Jordan_U not sure wat u guys on about by mine was correct =D05:16
Jordan_Uheoyea: No, it wasn't. Try copying and pasting it into bash (if you add either spaces or a newline between '{' and 'echo' it will work, but without that it's a syntax error).05:17
tucemiuxdr_willis, ill go for latest and greatest, does gnome 3 look like remix though?  I just want the plain old gnome05:17
heoyeaJordan_U: well im on zsh, maybe a little diff05:18
Jordan_U!notunity | tucemiux05:18
ubot93tucemiux: 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 !classic05:18
dr_willistucemiux:  your words are confuseng.. gnome shell does not look like gnome205:18
heoyeaselite: u can do like name() { javac "$1" ;}05:19
tucemiuxdr_willis, I think Jordan_U nailed it, remix = unity, I don't want unity, I want plain gnome, like this: http://www.webcoz.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/gnome-3-desktop-screenshoot.jpeg05:19

tucemiuxjordan, "investigate" gnome-tweak-tool?  Does this means I'll have to figure out how to exorcise unity? :-(05:21

tucemiuxmy netbook got hosed pretty good and I'm going to lose some sleep figuring this out o.O05:22
hitttok, so i picked "Gnome classic (No effects)" and it seems to be the old good gnome without any netbook stuff05:23
Jordan_Utom__: Please run "sudo apt-get purge matlab-support" and select cancel when asked for the installation path to matlab, that should get everything back to normal.05:23
Jordan_Utucemiux: No, gnome-tweak-tool is just a nice GUI for twiddling gnome-shell's knobs :)05:23
tucemiuxhittt, how did you install the packages so that you now have a "gnome classic" option?  You figured it out already, can you share your experience please? :-)05:24
hittttucemiux: by restarting that services i got greeted with a login manager i've never seen before, it had much more options05:25

voxadamI'm in the process of building a new desktop and I was wondering if there was any way to, using KVM, start or restart a Windows session when my girlfriend logs in. I have plenty of memory and my i5 3570 supports all the necessary virtualisation technologies.05:31
munderwo-workIm using pbuilder to build a custom package that involves a bunch of libraries and a python package, and then using fpm to build the virtualenv into a deb package. I've got all that working in a hook with pbuilder. Now I need to get the deb file back out. I dont have a .dsc file (because its a custom build) is there a way I can copy the .deb file out of the chroot?05:32
Daxterso yud want to save the state of the o for when your gf gets back? did i read that right?05:32
dr_willishmm.. there us a ubuntu-remixx variant that just comes with gnomelshell. calling unity 'remixx' is incorrect05:32
crimsonmanevoxadam: you can install VirtualBox, and I'm sure there's a command line method to run VB with a specified installed VM operating system, and you can make that command a startup command ending with " &"05:32
voxadamcrimsonmane: Thanks. I'll take a look.05:33
gimpygoowhy would update manager show me updates to software and then not let me update the software because of it not being from a trusted source?05:33

dr_willisparse in what way? t#e find command maybe what you want05:49
dr_willissda6 would be an logical partition inside of a extended partion05:50
tavoewhat is linux-swap?05:50
ubot93swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info05:51

L3topYes, I know. What are you attempting to capture in... what program?05:55
jbermudesI have a 12.10 DVD that boots fine on machine A, but on machine B it just gives me a blank cursor for a few minutes then the machine proceeds to boot off the hard drive. Any suggestions?05:56

Erinfontgorilla, that will have all the .ttf files owne by root, which might be a problem later you can use chmod to change em after06:12
heoyeasargennto: u might want to find what the name of that slider and reinstall the silder only06:12
Erinfontgorilla, you had it right06:12
crimsonmanefontgorilla: the "-R" means recursive, so it'll grab things in your directory plus all directories within that one06:13

heoyeaCyclicFlux: might have to manully add flash to swiftfox07:59
CyclicFluxAny thoughts?07:59
CyclicFluxheoyea, I am in the process of doing that now! :)07:59
heoyeaCyclicFlux: thats how we use to fix firefox flash junk in the past =D08:00
heoyeayea just add the libflash.so file to the correct folder08:00
=== atrius is now known as atrius_away
CyclicFluxheoyea: Semantically speaking everything is fine, I see on this setup that the firefox plugin location is /usr/lib/firefox/plugins, and upon installing swiftfox, I saw that the /usr/lib/firefox/plugins was then linked to /usr/lib/swiftfox/plugins, and I dbl-checked the link with 'll' from the shell.08:01
heoyeayea it might be symlinked08:01
Jordan_UCyclicFlux: If their webpage, http://getswiftfox.com/ , is any indication then swiftfox is *many* *many* versions behind Firefox.08:01
CyclicFluxheoyea, I got ya, it should work because Ubuntu has the /etc/update-alternatives present(I think that takes care of the majority of the prior flash squabbles on linux/ubuntu)08:02
Jordan_UCyclicFlux: Firefox has had *a lot* of performance improvements since 3.6.13, which will do a lot more than a few compiler flags.08:03
CyclicFluxJordan_U, so your saying that it could be a software compatibility thing?  The plugins were compatible, maybe I should check the about:config, and see the plugin settings/etc...08:03

ubot93k/ed/x/l/ubuntu-desktop is a metapackage. It depends upon other packages and brings them in; you can safely remove it, but it is recommended that you re-install it when upgrading.08:35

CyclicFluxJordan_U, Thanks for your interjection, I uninstalled swiftfox(found it strange that I had to either install it from source, or that it was not included in the default Ubuntu sources).  But after opening my original firefox, and then tweaking, and checking it I saw that it was progressively slower due to the overly grown SQLite database it keeps for anti-fishing.  Looking back its got 1+years of backups its using when I loaded my full file from FEBE(08:42

RJ45-Qsucks balls*09:22
ActionParsnipRJ45-Q: in Linux, libraries already in RAM are not loaded over and over, its a waste. Many apps can use a single lib from the HDD and in RAM, so it is more efficient in that way, also upgrades to the single lib upgrade ALL apps. Windows doesn't have this so upgrades use more data and are slower09:22

spidernik84Hi everyone. I was wondering: when building a deb package, is it preferrable to build a version of the package for each release it should be installed on? Say I build it for Lucid, do I need to build a Precise version for better performances/features/compatibility or can I use the same one?11:43

phaxMonkeyDust, i don't know why this failed in the first place11:44
IohnI recently accidentally deleted a bunch of files from a partition. I thought I'd be smart to create an image of it, using TestDisk to avoid any further writings possibly damaging the files. Now I've got the ISO but I'm not sure of how to try to extract the deleted files, any ideas? The partition was my home, partitioned in Ext411:44
MonkeyDustphax  got to go, i'm sure someone else can help, good luck11:45
ActionParsnipdsenator: win device manager, properties of device, disable wake up and power management11:45
abhitestActionParsnip: yes i ran update-grub and it do not work11:46
ActionParsnipIohn: use your backups11:46
ActionParsnipabhitest: my grub skills are slim11:46

abhitestActionParsnip: ok11:48
KartagisActionParsnip: no stall whatsoever using gFTP11:49
yaccspidernik84, well, that depends, usually the big difference between distributions are libraries => hence a package for xxx will not work on older/newer distributions that miss the relevant version (or a compatible one).11:49
ActionParsnipKartagis: cool :)11:50
ActionParsnipKartagis: does the client show it switching to different transfer modes?11:50
KartagisActionParsnip: first Binary, then Passive11:51
IohnActionParsnip: The directory I deleted sadly has no recent backup. Which is why I hoped to be able to extract the deleted files from the ISO. Is there any possiblity of acquiring these files?11:51
spidernik84yacc, thanks, so it's generally better to compile it for different distributions to avoid issues11:51
Kartagisdo I need PASV before ls?11:51

Kartagisobert: wget -m11:51
Metricsobert: http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/downloading-entire-web-site-wget11:51
ActionParsnipIohn: then you can try foremost. You will need a partition as big as the partition to spit all the data to (deleted and current). The data may be damaged or it may be fine11:52
Kartagisobert: one caveat though, if the server has php files, they are first processed, then wget'd11:52
ActionParsnipKartagis: try it, not sure11:52

abhitestbazhang: i first installed suse with /boot in normal partition and / inside encprted lvm. "Then" I installed lubuntu 12.10 and now grub shows only lubuntu. so its lubuntu issue. not suse.12:05
ale_and stays waiting.. and when it turns on no network until I do "sudo service network-manager start"12:05
ale_how do I get that to start by default? surely the internet should work out of the box12:05

ejozizo: possibly because you are connected by wire now.  Also do you have your wireless network configured to not advertise its SSID?  If that's the case then you would need to use the "add a wireless network not shown here" option17:07

csilkHi, Unity is really slow on my low powered netbook. Is there something I can do to make it quicker? I know there used to be a 2D mode but that seems to have been removed in 12.10?19:17
Guest6188I have done that -f thing, the result is at the bottom of the pastebin I sent19:17
gsantbut the problem is that if I add noapic option it does boot but my network stops working ..19:18
DJonescsilk: You could try a different desktop environment, lxde or xfce might be quicker on a low spec machine19:18
twirmGuest6188, try 'apt-get purge libreoffice'19:18
Guest6188trying that now.19:18
jwrigleyGuest6188: try creating the directories it is claiming are missing19:18

twirmjwrigley, they aren't missing, it's failing to overwrite them19:19
gsantThe weirdest is that i have backtrack installed ..but it doesnt boot anymore! :(19:19
csilkDJones, I wanted to continue running out of the box defaults if at all possible?19:19

Guest6188twirm: no, it throws the errors seen in the pastebin at me19:25
