sam_nazarkolook for fluxbox / ldm / gdm01:35
escottsam_nazarko, im simply noting that your comment says it is related to UDP and is state established,related, but UDP is stateless so...01:36

yhushaanything on why a toram session isn't performing so quik03:56
escottyhusha, what is toram03:56
escottwaynr, i think there is a deb bootstrap variant for ubuntu03:57
heoyea1st time i see some1 got excited to install IE803:57
yhushawhere the squashfs is loaded to ram and the whole system runs from ram not hdd the way things are configured here there is still persistant storage on hdd03:58
escottyhusha, and why should that be faster?03:58
yhushabecause ram is far faster than hdd03:58
escottyhusha, only relevant when you are reading from disk03:59
RJ45-Qboth of my problems cured themselves (to an extent) on 3rd reboot, nice, now the question is, why did this problem occur and will it happen again...03:59
zykotick9escott: waynr debootstrap03:59
escottRJ45-Q, since you never installed glxinfo i cant say04:00
RJ45-Qescott: a HDD iIS way faster than RAM!, the average HDD spins at around 5400RPM to 7200RPM!, where the average RAM just sits there :P04:01

brady2600is there some way i can disable compiz via the terminal04:06

mnsis there a way to use gnome shell instead of unity with ubuntu 12.04 ?04:08
zykotick9!notunity | mns04:08
ubottumns: 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 !classic04:08
escottbrady2600, that would do it. check /var/log/dpkg.log to figure out what she installed04:08
brady2600hummm.  the problem is i dont know exactly what she installed. i forget the name of the application, but the equivelent of add/remove programs in unity, can i run that04:08
brady2600i use gnome shell on my other machine gnome 3.604:08
mnscool thanks.04:08
brady2600ok yes, but the add/remove application on ubuntu, does anyone know the command i can run from the terminal to get it up on the screen, i dont have access to the system settings as it is04:11

ActionParsnipSyria: depends what it is. If it's source then you will need to pull down ALL the build deps for it, then spend time compiling it and so forth06:54

ActionParsnipYou could cron a script for every 5 mins to run:    date >> /var/log/minicom.log; /usr/bin/screen -d -m -L /usr/bin/minicom -w >> /var/log/minicom.log; echo >> /var/log/minicom.log;07:04
ActionParsnippaws: ^07:04
ActionParsnippaws: minus the last semicolon07:04
ActionParsnippaws: this can be put into a crontab and periodically you can read the log file to see how things are, like you would with other logs :)07:05
pawsok thanx, ActionParsnip let me give it a go07:05
ActionParsnipknightfrog: what package is it hanging on and it what way does it 'hang'?07:06
ActionParsnippaws: I recommend you make the file and chown it to your user, makes things a little easier07:06
pawswrite the before mentioned info in file and than in crontab write 5 *** user /path/to/file ?07:07
ActionParsnippaws: put the commands in a bash script and you can cron the script07:09

pawsfor some reason it doesnt show me whats happening with my minicom tho..07:16
pawsit just shows me the date Wed Dec  5 02:15:44 EST 201207:16
pawsbut nothing else... log is empty07:16
ActionParsnippaws: does the command you gave output the status to the screen and then stop?07:17
ActionParsnippaws: the minicom command you gave doesn't simply spit out the status07:18
pawswhen i screen -r it shows me all the values07:18
pawsi see action happening..07:18
pawsits a weight scale so i see 0.0kg 2.0kg etc..07:19
ActionParsnippaws: yes the command you gave seems to start a monitor app which you can watch, correct07:19
ActionParsnippaws: did you read the man page of minicom at all?07:20
pawsyes i can watch whats happening with my weight scale via minicom07:20

pawsActionParsnip so why does this log only show me the time but nothing from minicom :(07:26
pawswith the screen you told me..07:26
ActionParsnippaws: yes because the file you said which output the text to the screen wasn't jut that07:26
ActionParsnippaws: its an interactive command07:26
pawsah.. so its not possible?07:27
ActionParsnippaws: so the text is not output to stdout to then be redirected to the log07:27
ActionParsnippaws: many things are possible, may take more waork07:27
pawswhat are your ideas.. :)07:27

nullp0interfyi root is also a member of 'core'07:42
onboradDear all, Cedarview  D2500 have dirver on kernel and Xorg?07:42
ActionParsnippaws: killall minicom      should do it07:43
onboradany ideas?07:44
ActionParsnipnullp0inter: why, root has absolute power, so group membership is mooted by that fact07:44
pawsi tried that, ActionParsnip... but the minicom stays opened :)07:44
pawsi added killall right after the minicom -w -C $datadir.txt07:44
nullp0interActionParsnip: , how could I allow my group 'core' the permission to write then? Would I have to just assign the user portion of the chown command to anyone else in the 'core' group?07:45
ActionParsniponborad: its just some Intel GPU. The drivers are in a default install07:45
ActionParsnipnullp0inter: to write what?07:45
ActionParsnipnullp0inter: you can't just 'write'07:45
onboradwhich release version?07:46
nullp0interActionParsnip: , I just need to create log files07:46
ActionParsnipnullp0inter: you could add your  user to the syslog group and get write access07:47
nullp0interActionParsnip : apache will technically will be the writer in this case07:47

berdyHey guys, I installed 12.04 server and during the install I did not have an ethernet connection and was therefore unable to auto config my network settings. Now I'm trying to get it to connect with a static ip and I'm having issues. It shows it's up and running but I'm not able to find google. Any ideas?08:33
ActionParsnipberdy: does yournetwork not support dhcp?08:34
danhidr_willis i want to check why this file is too big ? my upload bandwidth traffic was too much for this month and i supose that sendmail is the problem...08:34
berdyActionParsnip, I want it to be static08:34
berdyunless it's not necessary08:34
ActionParsnipberdy: but if you request dhcp, do you get a reply?08:34
onboradActionParsnip:can you provide  xorg.conf  ?08:34
berdyActionParsnip, sorry, I don't understand. You mean if I don't use a static ip?08:35
berdyFirst time using ubuntu server after using arch for quite some time.08:35

ActionParsniponborad: its a very complex file, I can hash you one up but it's hit and miss to if it willwork08:36
onboradI will provide xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log file08:37
ActionParsnipberdy: if you read between the lines. If the DHCP fails then the network adapter isn't working.08:37
ActionParsnipberdy: think outside the box08:38
berdyIt works08:38
onboradActionParsnip:which lead to the issue?08:38
berdydhcp works and it says "DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to"08:38
ActionParsnipberdy: great the interface is up and communicating. When you set the IP statically, can you ping your default gateway?08:38
berdyMy router says the gateway is

sankeyhow can I get the latest open source radeon drivers on ubuntu 12.04?09:36
ActionParsnipjasper22: does hosts.conf have the first uncommented line:  order hosts,bind09:36
ActionParsnipsankey: remove the proprietary ones09:36
jasper22ActionParsnip: here is my /etc/hosts:   http://paste.ubuntu.com/1412134/09:37
sankeyActionParsnip: proprietary ones were never installed, i just assumed the open source ones i have right now are out of date, since suspend works in other distros (Arch, openSUSE)09:37
sankeyi'm on ubuntu 12.04, and suspend doesn't work  <-- that's basically my problem09:38
sankeyi'm pretty sure it's a problem with drivers because on resume i can't even switch to TTY109:39
sankeyi'm not sure if the radeon drivers are associated with the kernel, but i tried upgrading from 3.2 to 3.4, but that didn't fix the problem.09:41
sankeyi can't upgrade to 3.5/3.6 because ubuntu doesn't offer non-pae versions09:42
almoxarifesankey: you can use the pae kernel on a non pae09:42
ActionParsnipsankey: not out of date, the other distros will use different kernel settings and different compile options andso forth09:42
almoxarifesankey: did you try the other suspend packages? s3 i think is one?09:44

almoxarifesankey: forget what i said, i assumed pae was supported since noah was a bootcamp, seems not so09:48
ActionParsnipjasper22: maybe, not too sure tbh09:49

jasper22ActionParsnip: ok, thanks, I'll try to restart the computer couple of times.. let see what happens09:50
almoxarifejasper22: what version of ubuntu did you un-install dnsmasq from?09:50
jasper22almoxarife: 12.10 LTS09:50
ActionParsnipEagleman: in livecd I suppose so. I recommend you rename the current one rather than deleting09:51
ActionParsnipjasper22: 12.10 isn't LTS09:51
almoxarifejasper22: pretty sure 12.10 and 12.04 require dnsmasq, didnt alot of other things get un-installed with dnsmasq also?09:51
EaglemanI cant do it when the OS is running?09:51
ActionParsnipjasper22: 12.04 is LTS and 10.04 is LTS09:51
EaglemanI am currently remote so i cant livecd do it09:51
sankeyActionParsnip: in that link you sent me, there is a link to installing 12.10 and it provides a PPA for a 3.5 kernel. Do you think that PPA will work in 12.04 also?09:52
jasper22Ooopss sorry - 12.0409:52
ActionParsnipEagleman: there are files like /etc/hostname and /etc/resolv.conf which you need for the OS to work09:52
ActionParsnipsankey: maybe09:52
EaglemanThey are not loaded in the memory ?09:52

EaglemanThe files will only be missing for a few minutes09:52
almoxarifejasper22: yeap, you need to re-install it09:53
ActionParsnipEagleman: its still needed. If you keep those files you'll be ok. Or you can sidestep issues and use live CD09:53

ironhalikActionParsnip: Yeah, they should, but I hear horror stories about the 7000's support with the OSS drivers. So I was wondering about the binary drivers10:39
Eaglemanread the part on how to save and load it10:39
internetishardIt's hard to tell if they're doing anything special for them, or just testing with the latest kernel and labeling that hardware ubuntu compatible10:40

ikoniainternetishard: no10:40
jasper22otehrwise it won't work10:40
internetishardikonia: no what?10:40
internetishardUbuntu doesn't add special support for macbooks? So any distro with the same kernel will have similar support?10:41
ikoniainternetishard: no it doesn't have better hardware support for macbooks10:41

ActionParsnipinternetishard: they use fairly generic stuff now (no idea why they still charge double price), you may find the necessity for tweaks but otherwise they aren't too bad from what I have heard10:42
ActionParsnipinternetishard: you can have the same kernel version etc andhave different drivers and such enabled.10:42
ikoniaActionParsnip: you know why they charge a price, please don't make those sort of silly comments10:42
internetishardActionParsnip: yeah, I'm just trying ot choose between distros - I have to use one for work10:42

minasHere's a scenario: I open firefox. Before firefox loads, I open another program (e.g. skype). Let's say that skype opens first. When firefox opens, it puts itself in front of skype. I don't want that to happen. Is there a setting I can change?11:38
kishimi98fresh install  ,............. im beggining to like the sound of that,.,. but man i think i would simply manage the system with its problems11:38
jribkishimi98: if you deleted that file I asked you to, you can try then installing python-aptdaemon.gtk3widgets again.  If that completes successfully, then you can retry the upgrade.  That's what I would do anyway.11:39

ujjainNo, but Test Sound is not even working13:35
ujjainmaybe a bios setting13:35
jribsalmon: umm, check for something like ~/.ecryptfs .  I forget what the current setup is.  An easy way for you to check would be to not login, then login as a different user and see what the home directory looks like for the user you can't ssh with13:35
peterrusujjain, laptop or desktop?13:36
ujjainpeterrus: desktop connecte to TV via HDMI13:36
peterrusujjain, onboard card or seperate graphics card?13:36
ujjainbut there is a seperate graphics card, but it does not have hdmi13:36
salmonjrib, problem is, it's a headless server. I'm only able to login by typing in a keyboard blindly.13:36

peterrussalmon, doesnt it have a serial terminal port?13:37
peterrusujjain, and try digital output instead of hdmi?13:37
ujjainI tried, tested all 313:37
peterrusif it still doesnt work. use 'alsamixer' to see if nothing is muted (MM) or set to zero volume13:37
jribsalmon: well the easiest thing for you to do is check for ~/.ecryptfs.  Like I said, I'm not sure that's the way encryption works at the moment, but if you see that there, then it's a good guess you have an encrypted home.  If you don't see it, then we can just assume your home is encrypted, try the solution (move your authorized_keys outside your encrypted home) and see if you can login then13:37
jribsalmon: also, if you have another user (user B), you can ssh as user B and check what user A's home looks like before you login13:38
peterruseach users home directory contains a .Private file/folder13:39
peterrusthat contains their encrypted homedir13:39
salmonjrib, I don't have that folder and no other users. Also, I have a script in /etc/init.d that I want to run at start up, and that runs only after login too.13:39
jribsalmon: you can see the discussion about what to do with an encrypted home at: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH/OpenSSH/Keys#Troubleshooting13:39
peterrusso if that file is present and isn't zero in size13:39
peterrusits probably an encrypted homedir13:39
jribsalmon: see what peterrus says13:39
jribsalmon: I doubt ssh is only starting after you login. When you attempt to ssh without logging in locally, don't you get a response from the ssh server?  Saying authentication failed?13:40

Lachezaronborad: I was unable to 'fix' this issue, normally it would go away with a kernel update a few months later, but still... To this day I only use shutdown, no suspend, and no hibernate,13:50
salmonjrib, It's a simple script that does basic tasks that I run every time I start the server. It starts an IRC client, torrent client, IRC bot and a webserver. The problem existed before I ever set the script up. I just logged in through the keyboard and the script ran, and ssh works.13:51
onboradLachezar:you are well better gay!13:52
Lachezaronborad: WTF?13:52
onboradwhat ?13:52

jribsalmon: I have to leave though; I'll be back in an hour or two13:53
salmonjrib, Ok, I'll still be here unless I manage to fix it, thanks for the help so far13:54
jribsalmon: it's definitely not default behavior.  If ssh wasn't running at all, you'd just get a timeout, not a connection refused13:54
jribsalmon: so maybe there's some firewall that you disable when you login?  I don't know; just guessing13:54

MangoBoyHi i just installed firefox 16 from downloaded .deb packages but had (i thought) to uninstall hunspell as gdebi said it was uncompatible. i fired up synaptic and uninstalled hunspell but dream of my horror when i saw half my computor were uninstalled as dependent of hunspell.. any ideas how i could get a list? dpkg.log only have installed packages!14:12

Guest38605Can someone help me understand why my read error rate and my seek error rate are valued  hundreds of thousands higher than my threshold? This SMART data paradoxically says it's assessment is OK? That the overall assessment is OK? This doesn't seem right to me out of intuition, but then again I am a noob, I could be completely wrong.14:19
escottEmanon, the little 5-10px black bar at the top of the display which is currently marked as primary14:19
=== bradleyalexander is now known as bac
escottGuest38605, the main smart things to look for are relocated blocks14:20
EmanonI don't mean to switch their position I mean to set which monitor windows open in by default and whatnot.14:20
escottEmanon, yes14:21
root__can someone explain me how to change my pseudo?14:23
ujjainSolution to sound not working via HDMI. Ubuntu has it disabled by default for Radeon cards via HDMI. You have to edit the kernel boot options. - Linux can never be successful as a desktop OS if users have to use the command-line to get basic functionality working.14:23
EaglemanWHo says windows does not use command in the background with every action you do?14:24
EaglemanThink about that14:24

Guest38605Escott: The only thing I see that has anything to do with blocks is runtime-bad-block total valued at 0. Is that relevant, and if so, a good or bad thing?14:25
escottGuest38605, 0 bad blocks is good. if you want to paste the entire output i can scan it14:25
escottGuest38605, paste.ubuntu.com14:26
superbbbdoes someone use tabletc?14:27
Guest38605Escott: Uh I don't think there is an option to copy or paste. I am using ubuntu 12.04 disks to look at this information. I can try to screencapture and send you that?14:27
escottGuest38605, you could do a screenshot or open a terminal and try sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda14:28
ujjainEagleman, the point is that hardware always works plug-and-play in Windows and often takes effort in Ubuntu. The fact that graphical interfaces use commands in the background is not the point. The point that you would have to use console commands as a desktop user.14:30
lhavelundujjain: Discussing OS politics, their prevalence or use, shortcomings, strengths and weaknesses is not on-topic here. This is exclusively for support.14:31
ujjainsure, I understand :)14:31
Guest38605escott: I am going to send you a screenshot because I am currently probing the disk with test disk for other partitions and I don't want to interfere whilst simultaneously running a SMART test.14:31
lhavelundujjain: Thanks! :)14:31
salmonjrib, almoxarife, So I added "/etc/init.d/ssh start" to /etc/rc.local and that fixed the problem14:33

cristian_cWhat command have I to type to list all the shell variables?14:37
cristian_cAny ideas?14:37
TakeItEZcristian_c: env14:38
MaxFramesI've set up a password for "root" on a 12.04 virtual machine, and now I cannot logon with any username other than root14:38
cristian_cTakeItEZ, env lists the environment variables14:39
cristian_cTakeItEZ, I'd like to list the shell variables14:39
Guest38605Hello escott: are you still there?14:39
escottGuest38605, yes14:39
escottcristian_c, the difference is what exactly14:40
usr13MaxFrames: YOu've forgotten the password for the original user.  Change it.14:41
MaxFramesI haven't forgotten the password for the original user.14:41
escottcristian_c, i guess if you dont export it doesnt appear there14:41
hilohttp://www.benscobie.com/fixing-500-oops-vsftpd-refusing-to-run-with-writable-root-inside-chroot Is it a security risk to allow chroot to a directory which the user has write permissions?14:41
usr13MaxFrames: Have you deleted the original user?14:41
MaxFrameswhen I try to logon as the original user, the password is accepted, the screen goes blank for a while, and then I am back to the logon screen14:41
MaxFramesI haven't done anything to the original user14:42
usr13MaxFrames: Why did you set password for root?14:42
MaxFramesI shall add that I've installed likewise-open, joined the machine to a domain (succeeded) and rebooted it14:42
escottcristian_c, set will show all those14:43
MaxFramesusr13: because I had to edit the sudoers file and this file has a remark saying that it "MUST" be edited using visudo by the root user--- anyway the reason does not matter14:43
escotthilo, depends on the permissions of the user and the goal of the chroot14:43
MaxFramesthe cause of the issue may be setting up a root password or it may be due to something likewise-open did14:43
MaxFrameseither way, it's unexpected behaviour14:44
cristian_cescott, set returns much code14:44
usr13MaxFrames:  Sure is.14:44
cristian_cescott, I'd like a list of variables14:44
escottcristian_c, its all in there14:45
TakeItEZcristian_c: set | less14:45
usr13MaxFrames: Did you follow some sort of guide when setting up likewise-open?14:46
cristian_cescott, TakeItEZ, ok, but these commands return code, not a list14:46
usr13MaxFrames: If so, show me.14:46
TakeItEZcristian_c: first page here shows vars14:47
=== mquin_ is now known as mquin
MaxFramesusr13: yes; anyway I just installed likewise-open and likewise-open-gui, I used the GUI which is very straightforward, and I joined the domain. It succeeded (confirmed, domain side, the computer account was created). then I rebooted14:47
MaxFramesI had done it in the past, did not have this problem14:47
hiloescott, thanks. Method in the post doesn't seem to work (adding that option to my config fails the service on a restart). No longer bothering with it.14:47
usr13MaxFrames: YOu're obviously leaving out a detail that is key to what has caused the problem.  What does ls /home  say?  Do you still have the user dir?14:48
MaxFramesyes, there is a dir with the username14:49
usr13MaxFrames: You said "yes" to the question "Did you follow a guide somewhere on installing likewise-open".  Right?  Can you point me to that guide you followed?14:50
usr13MaxFrames: Or have you forgotten where it is? Or was it in the internet at all?14:50
Guest38605Escott: Sorry for the lag, it took me a while to upload these. Here is the SMART data. http://imageshack.us/content_round.php?page=done&l=img26/34/workspace1002d.png14:50

usr13MaxFrames: I suppose it is possible that you've somehow changed permissions for the home dir.  Take a look and see.  ls -l /home/14:51
MaxFramesusr13: it is in the internet and if you can read Italian here it is http://www.comunecampagnano.it/gnu/mini-howto/Ubuntu_join_dominio_Windows/ubuntu_join_dominio_windows.pdf14:51

escottGuest38605, hardware ecc recovered is also pretty high14:54
Guest38605Escott: What does it mean?14:54
escotthard to say with something like that. i would keep good backups, but as long as its functioning i guess its ok14:54
Guest38605Escott: I can't remember if I told you this already, but I am a noob.14:55
Bower^i've updated my $PATH variable but the changes won't take effect until i log out then back in. is there a way around that?14:55
usr13MaxFrames: My Italian is not good, but I do not see where it tells you to create root account.  That is the #1 thing you should not have done.  BUT, what you see there is that your home dir is owned by sysadmin, so, is sysadmin the [correct] username?14:56
MaxFramesusr13: when I try to log in as the user, a message is briefly displayed before the logon screen reappears... it's too fast to read, but I saw the words "dispatcher disabled"... does that ring some bell?14:56
escottGuest38605, sometimes you see these kinds of high values and its actually in error. usually with things like cpu temp where it reports 2000 degrees. shouldnt happen with smart status, but i cant say for sure. monitor the progression of those values (you can do that by installing smartctl and running "sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda > smart_YYYYMMDD.txt" and then running diff smart_YYYYMMDD.txt smart_YYYYMMDD.txt for different dates14:56
MaxFramesusr13: I never said that creating a password for root was part of the process of installing likewise-open. on the contrary, I made it very clear that they are two separate operations that I have done, and that either may be the cause of the issue14:57
escottBower^, logging out and logging in14:57

uberamdnotwist: ldd path/to/the/tool15:04

ironfroggy*the device15:05

MaxFrameswhat do you think had happened to remove write access to the dir?15:08
Codex_I get this: No supported AMD display adapters were found... Where is the fglrx driver setup setting?15:08
notwistMaxFrames: the only one that can remove write access is root or the folder owner, so either of them ran something they shouldnt15:08
TakeItEZMaxFrames: search your/roots history for chmod commands15:08
MaxFramesthe sequence was: 1) sudo gedit /etc/sudoers => I saw the remark "you MUST edit this file from root using visudo"15:09
MaxFrames2) sudo passwd root => I chose a password15:10
MaxFrames3) visudo => added a line to the file and saved it15:10
MaxFramesthat's all15:10
notwistwhy did you run "sudo passwd root"? the root user is disabled15:10
domieCodex_, do you have radeon 2xxx/3xxx/4xxx and 12.10?15:10
MaxFramesnotwist: apparently it's not, since the command succeeded15:10

escottMaxFrames, next time use "sudo -i" to get an interactive root shell15:11
escottnotwist, its not disabled now15:11
TakeItEZMaxFrames: it is locked until someone sets a password15:11
ThinkT510MaxFrames: setting a root password re-enables the root account (which you shouldn't do)15:11
MaxFramesok, so now how do I disable it back?15:11
escottMaxFrames, sudo passwd -l root15:11
MaxFramesand why does the sudoers file say that it MUST be edited as root (caps lock are not mine, it's really written this way)15:12

notwistlJ6il: do you mean installing a webserver (apache) with php?15:13

Terminuswhoops, forgot to mention. totem gstreamer on 12.0415:14
lJ6ilnothingspecial, sorry. I was talking to notwist :)15:14
MaxFramesthe remark says "This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root", so I did "su", got "authentication failed", and you know the rest15:14
notwistlJ6il: then try localhost port 80 and see if you get a page15:14
almoxarifemyhero: use ssh, set up sftpd on both, use an adroid app for the mobile, use ???? filezilla on the lappy?15:14
TakeItEZMaxFrames: sudo visudo         is the command to edit suoders file  (for the future)15:14
MaxFramesthanks, doing that now15:14
myheroalmoxarife: guide me....15:14
uberamdMaxFrames: doing something as "root" and using sudo are often used interchangably15:14
lJ6ilnotwist, ok !15:15
escottMaxFrames, the emphasis is on the "visudo" part of that statement. any way to run a command as root is fine, just that the command should be visudo15:15
almoxarifemyhero: you forgot 'please'15:15
atlusis there a simple driver I can install from software center for my linksys wireless adapter?15:15
uberamdMaxFrames: when people say use root they often don't mean do a sudo -i or su15:15

MaxFramessuccess! big time!15:20
uberamdbkfitz: depends on the router but generally you can't access it from outside15:20

notwistlJ6il: can you run sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart15:22
lJ6ilYes for the first question.15:23
notwistlJ6il: try restarting the apache server per my second message and see if that changes anything15:23
lJ6ilfor the second one : http://dpaste.org/LO4vs/15:23
uberamdbkfitz: that data sheet is incredibly vague, looks like you may need to use their stupid cloud website to access stuff remotely15:23
=== chris_ is now known as hairy
bkfitzuberamd: yeah sorry meant to link to spec webpage... but i think you are right... html only access from cloud... or ftp15:24
uberamdbkfitz: I generally stick with Asus routers for that purpose, their usb ports support a variety of access methods including ftp, smb, etc.15:24
notwistlJ6il: check out /var/log/apache2/error.log15:24
bkfitzuberamd: thx for the advise... but cifs isn't really a good solution for access from the outside right?  ports 139 etc bad15:25
uberamdbkfitz: right and thats where a sftp option is useful. I avoid FTP as much as I can for anything I care about15:25
lJ6ilnotwist, empty file.15:25
bkfitzuberamd: you mean because ftp is plain text15:26
notwistlJ6il: what do you get if you run ps -e | grep apache15:26
notwistis it running?15:26
uberamdbkfitz: exactly why sftp is >>>> ftp15:26
notwistlJ6il: if im not mistaken it looks like something is already using your port 80, so thats either a dead apache process or something else15:27
lJ6ilnotwist, there's also a strange thing :
lJ6ildon't know why it's like that15:27
bkfitzuberamd: yeah... and you think the asus' generally support sftp and i could 'mount' that as local storage through fstab15:27
lJ6ilnothing for the grep apache15:27
uberamdbkfitz: thats the route i went. plus asus has great support for ddwrt which i love15:27
notwistlJ6il: what happens if you run sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start15:28
bkfitzuberamd: 10-4 - also wanted to give ddwrt a shot15:28

lJ6ilnotwist, same15:29
bkfitzuberamd: this one looks pretty sweet and supports something called ASUS AiCloud - http://www.asus.com/Networks/Wireless_Routers/RTAC66U/15:30

notwistlJ6il: although that in itself shouldnt stop apache from starting15:31
bkfitzuberamd: gotta love google - http://event.asus.com/2012/nw/aicloud/index.htm (ASUS AiCloud keeps you connected to your data wherever and whenever you have an Internet connection. It links your home network and online Web storage service* and lets you access it through the AiCloud mobile app on your iOS or Android smartphone or through a personalized URL in a Web browser. Now all your data can go where you do.)15:31

uberamdbkfitz: which is a plus in my book15:31
bkfitzuberamd: yeah... still not safe protocol for access from outside except sftp15:31

scarleoHi, having a problem with a script that I need to run as root with crontab, I can see that the script runs but it doesn't do the same thing as when I run it manually16:10
escottatlus, you are being rude, and you seemed to be confused about how things work. if cisco/linksys doesn't provide specs on the hardware someone has to reverse engineer it. that is expensive to do so unless you want to pay lots of money there is no guarantee it will work. but we can offer you a full 100% refund of your purchase price16:10
hilo MonkeyDust, man pages say -vv increases verbosity more (and this is how I've used it in the past)16:10
escottscarleo, yes... and the script is16:10
TakeItEZhilo: -vv increases verbosity, but it will tell you why or why not files will be copied16:10
hiloTakeItEZ, ah okay16:11
MonkeyDusthilo  i use rsync -avv for my daily backups, it says 'is up to date', thanks to -vv16:11
scarleoescott, it is executing rtcwake but the pc doesn't sleep when I run it from cron16:11
atlusits not rude its one of the top retaillers for wifi products and the card has been out for over 3 years....and ndswrapper doesnt even work on a fresh install of ubuntu from the software center..16:11
almoxarifeatlus: did you reboot after installing what ever it is that you installed?16:12
scarleoescott, it's from here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/61708/automatically-sleep-and-wake-up-at-specific-times16:12
escottscarleo, thats a horrible tutorial16:13
almoxarifeatlus: did the install and reboot happen within the last couple of hours?16:13
scarleoescott, probably :) But anywa, the pc sleeps when I run the script, bt not whe I run it with cron16:13
escottscarleo, you should NEVER have root crontab executing something out of the users home folder. NEVER NEVER NEVER16:13
TakeItEZhilo: sry it won't tell you "why not", just rechecked16:14
escottscarleo, in your case you likely have an encrypted home or something. move the script to /root16:14
hiloMonkeyDust, The "is up to date" is just added verbosity, -vv does not change the behavior of rsync in any functional manner16:14
TakeItEZerr "whx"16:14

scarleoescott, Yes I do but the script is in /usr/local/bin/suspend_until16:14

TakeItEZfstx: there shouldn't be a limitation except your memory-size16:25
scarleoescott, I have made some tests with that as well, I tried adding a simple echo "Running" > /root/test.txt and it is running16:25
escottscarleo, so either it is not getting the arguments correctly (you can just echo $1 > /root/test.txt) or rtcwake is not working in the cron script16:26
scarleoescott, yes It might be the argument, I'll try echo that16:28

danielbauwensMy brother blocked a certain website through Iptables and ipmasq (not sure how) and can anyone help me undo this?18:09
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo18:10

hiloCan someone please help me figure out this rsync problem? I have a backup system which I use rsync to replicate to. Normally, it just sends changed and new files. For some reason it is sending everything. Can someone aid in troubleshooting? I have been tinkering with it literally all day and can not figure it out for the life of me.19:10
IdleOnemens: sudo apt-get install pyrit19:13
IdleOnemens: Always search the Software Center first.19:14
mens<IdleOne>   THANKS A LOT!19:15
wyclifHi all19:16
hiloWhat could cause files to fall out of sync such that rsync would resend the whole file?19:17
Shaun__trism: That may just be what I'll do, I can't even understand the dmesg xD19:17
Shaun__trism: I am also wondering it the ethernet card could have gone bad in the power outage :< . It's an old card I pulled out of another system after all lol. Thanks for your help xD . I am not sure how to copy and transfer files to a flash drive over terminal though,19:19
Shaun__There should only be one file I need to transfer.19:19
bkfitzuberamd: just pulled the trigger on this ASUS - thx for the advise: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006QB1RPY/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i0019:21
trismShaun__: after you plug in the flash drive, check dmesg to see what name it gets assigned (and perhaps: sudo fdisk -l; to see what partition), in my case it ended up being /dev/sdb1 so: sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt; use cp to put files on the drive, then: sudo umount /dev/sdb1; when you are done, replacing sdb1 with the partition that got assigned to your device19:23
loki__hello. why skype can't see pulseaudio under ubuntu? all other sound programms works good.19:24
MarcNUsed vncviewer for the first time in a long time on ubuntu 12.10 -- man it sucks repainting.  What happened?19:25
mr_chrisMarcN: Are you going Linux to Linux or Linux to some other OS?19:25
Shaun__trism: okay, so mount the flash drive and enter "cp (origin directory)~(destination)"?19:25
hiloMarcN, last I checked, the built in vnc server is broken with unity. it doesn't draw everything all the time and it makes it really difficult to use. I started using x11vnc about a year ago19:27
trismShaun__: yeah, probably need sudo too, sudo cp /path/to/file /mnt/; add -R if you want to copy a whole directory, -v to see what cp is doing, etc19:27
MarcNhilo, I'll give x11vnc a shot.19:27
MarcNmr_chris, yes ubuntu to ubuntu, both 12.1019:28
Shaun__trism: "sudo /home/shaun/teamspeak3-server_linux-x86/to/dev/sdb1"? owo19:29
Shaun__trism: "sudo cp ..."*19:30
hiloMarcN, I also have grown to really like a few features of the x11vnc server that are better than the built in. You can run the x11vnc from terminal/ssh which means you don't need to leave it running. SSH into the box and turn it on when you need it so it's not listening for hackers all day long. It also can be started even when no user has logged into the local session meaning you can remote into the log on screen and log in.19:30
MarcNhilo, installing now.  Really disappointing that it doesn't work out of the box with Unity, now that Unity is the default.19:31
zykotick9Shaun__: that /dev/sdb1 concerns me, that's a device - when it should be a mount point19:32
trismShaun__: /dev/sdb1 would be the device name, above I mounted it at /mnt, so you would copy to to /mnt19:32
trismShaun__: again though, check to see what name gets assigned to your flash drive when you plug it in19:32
zykotick9trism: great minds and fools ;)19:32
=== xander is now known as Guest17807
hiloMarcN, agreed.19:33
Guest17807How do you change the boot order of partitions in a HDD in unbuntu?19:33
Shaun__trism: Okay, and so, "sudo cp /home/shaun/teamspeak3-server_linux-x86/to/mnt" after I mount whatever name is listed in dmesg?19:33
Shaun__And sorry, I know, I am a terrible newb with Linux :x .19:34
zykotick9Shaun__: you need a space between the file and destination, where your "/to" is19:34
trismShaun__: is teamspeak3-server_linux-x86 a directory?19:34
Shaun__trism: Yes, som -R at the end, right?19:35
trismShaun__: if so it would look like: sudo cp -R /home/shaun/teamspeak3-server_linux-x86 /mnt;19:35
trismShaun__: yep19:35
zykotick9Shaun__: fyi, for cp you can use -R or -r they are the same19:36
Shaun__trism: Okay, will try that., thank you so much :D19:36
trismzykotick9: yeah I don't know why I always bother with the shift key19:36
Shaun__zykotick9: Thanks, well,  atleast I did know that... well, I know that caps normally don't matter in commands =\19:36
zykotick9trism: for some other commands it's required ;)19:36
zykotick9Shaun__: oh, R vs r is important with other stuff, cp is an exception19:37
Shaun__zykotick9: That's about one of the few things I do know... I need to study Linux ;.;19:37
mega1i have an error message on my server 10.04 fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2 how do i get rid of this19:37

vcarneyI need a recommendation for an AntiVirus program. I'm running 12.04. Thanks.19:38
hiloMarcN, for your reference, I start my server with this "sudo x11vnc -safer -allow ~/whitelist.IP -once -usepw -auth /var/lib/gdm/:0.Xauth -display :0 -loop200,2 -xkb -noxdamage #-ncache 10 -ncache_cr" For that to work you have to set a password first with "x11vnc -storepasswd" and make a simple text file with IP address's to allow. You can remove the respective switches for those features to use it without them though.19:38

Guest17807Is it possible to change the boot order of partitions in a HDD using ubuntu?19:42
vcarneyTheLordOfTime: any antivirus suggestions19:42
TheLordOfTimevcarney, i've only ever seen 1 linux virus in 500000 linux systems i've worked with19:42
TheLordOfTimevcarney, the factoid that zykotick9 linked you is correct, there's no need for a linux antivirus.19:42
TheLordOfTimevcarney, just... don't be doing questionable things with youir linux system,.19:42
MarcNhilo, and the key is using x11vnc -ncache 1019:42
TheLordOfTimevcarney, that's how you get viruses :P19:42
TheLordOfTimethat and user stupidity, but that's not something i'll argue here...19:43
vcarneyTheLordOfTime: what about flash19:43
TheLordOfTimethat falls into the category of user stupidity.19:43

HTC-DZ12.04 LTS - to get it to work with onboard GPU i had to use "nomoeset" then once i was in i installed the propriety drivers and everything was fine. i updated my GPU to nvidia gt610, used "nomodeset" it kinda boots and then goes to terminal <dos looking thing> asks me to log in. i do that. stays at terminal. any ideas on where to go from there? all help welcome :)19:47
Shaun__trism: Well, I did as you said, but I am still having issues =\ . dmesg pulls up the info of my flash drive and all, but then it states that there is "no caching page mode present" and will not mount the drive =\19:48

Guest17807Is it possible to change which partition boots on your HDD?19:50
Shaun__HTC-DZ: I know your pain :,( though, to be fair and honest, I am sure you know much more than I do :P19:52
zykotick9HTC-DZ: actually, it might be better to "less /var/log/Xorg.0.log" and just look for the lines with EE and perhaps the following lines as well19:52
MarcNhilo, spoke too soon.  x11vnc is just as bad with Unity.  Looks like I should explore the cinnamon WM or such.19:53
trismShaun__: that no caching page mode present is fine, what command did you use to mount the drive?19:53
BluesKajHTC-DZ, at the prompt, do,  sudo service lightdm or gdm stop, ( whichever display manager you have installed ) , the sudo apt-get install nvidia-current , then sudo nvidia-xconfig , then reboot19:53
Guest17807Is it possible to change which partition boots on your HDD?19:53
Shaun__"sudo mount /dev/sdb1"19:53
trismShaun__: you need to specify a mount point if it isn't in fstab, so try: sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt; (assuming /mnt isn't being used at the moment, which it usually isn't)19:54
Shaun__trism: Oh owo . Okay, thanks lol... sorry for my noobiness xDD .19:54
Guest17807Is it possible to change which partition boots on your HDD?19:54
HTC-DZzykotick9: the terminal is on <username>@<username>-desktop:~$. do i type "less /var/log/Xorg.0.log" there?19:54

frozenlockGuys... I don't know what I've done, but I've lost the 'ctrl-super-arrow' function to resize a window to left/right. Even dragging the window to the edge won't resize it like it used to. Is there something I can reset to get back this functionality?19:56
rsumi_werkanyone know where this setting is supposed to be in gconf on ubuntu 12? /apps/compiz-1/plugins/unityshell/screen0/options19:56
trismrsumi_werk: 12.10? if so the settings are in dconf/gsettings now, check out dconf-editor19:56
frozenlockI don't know if it's related, but when I hold the 'super' key, I don't get the shortcuts screen anymore; it just shows number on my applications in the taskbar.19:57
trismrsumi_werk: though I imagine most of those should be in ccsm19:58
xanguafrozenlock: sounds like you were playing with the compiz plugins, check the grid plugin is enable19:58
rsumi_werktrism: what's the difference between dconf and gconf?19:58
HTC-DZany tips?19:59
HTC-DZnoooo.i typed out everything :( wait i retype19:59
trismrsumi_werk: dconf is a backend for gsettings, which is basically the new gconf (everything is moving to gsettings instead)20:00

HTC-DZzykotick9:  you mean i should off my pc, pull the card. log in with onboard GPU, get into linux as normal, select the nvidia current, shutdown. plug in gt610, restart machine and see what happens? the reason im using 173 is coz with the nvidia current my onboard GPU couldnt even run openarena. but with 173 it works on full graphics.20:05

TheLordOfTimeGuest17807, it shouldn't, but back up your data anyways.  And only set the "bootable" flag if you know what you're doing, changing that on a whim can cause issues.20:10

How can I get the hunspell module?20:40
guntbertMarvin_Leo: show us in a !pastebin what command you gave and the output please20:40
SonikkuAmericaHey everyone!20:41
Marvin_Leozykotick9, you got it right coz I have an ntfs partition which I use to sandbox my linux and windows stuff.  Does it mean then that I'll have to work on the linux partition?20:41
icerootcan i use encryption on an already used partition without reformating it? so that i will keep the complete data?20:42
zykotick9Marvin_Leo: ntfs won't support chmod - use a better filesystem ;)20:42
Marvin_Leoguntbert, just realised why. My files are on a ntfs filesystem20:42
Marvin_Leozykotick9, I get it now :)  I owe you one :)20:43
guntbertMarvin_Leo: I see :-), never mind my comment then20:43
Marvin_Leoguntbert, thanks anyway :)20:43
SonikkuAmericaThat's weird... NTFS not supporting chmod... is there another way to change permissions on a NTFS filesystem, or are you forced into using Windows?20:43
icerootSonikkuAmerica: windows does not know permissions like unix does, windows is using different things but for example samba is doing a mapping between posix acls and windows stuff20:44
Dougie187Does anyone know if one of two things exist? First a program that will monitor specific sections of ram for attempted reads/writes and Second, a program that will monitor another process and inform me if/when it dies?20:44
zykotick9SonikkuAmerica: nothing "weird" about MS's promprietary filesystem not supporting posix, that's business as usual (for MS)20:44

bobweaverarronhunt,  you should use 'Find' to do that because it is http you do not what to give the wrong permissions out so that everyone can read right and run it all21:22

bobweaverarronhunt,  so it says  sudo find /var/www/   << so that is the path that we are going to look in. and -type well you arleady know     -exec  means execute something. in your exampkle it is chmod 644 right     the {}   is what find finds \; end  so  find /var/www/ -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;           so find every file under /var/www/ and chmod 644 to it21:31
arronhuntbobweaver awesome, that's very helpful.21:31
arronhuntbobweaver got it working now :)21:31
bobweaverarronhunt, it is better to also cd /var/www/      then run find .   then . means everthing under CURDIR or current directory :) glad it is working21:32

SonikkuAmericaLABcrab: Actually I clicked on your link and got a 40422:24

Nik05crimsonmane it does create the file, and i have permissions22:25
Nik05i can use sudo su... but dont want to :P22:25
derpderpdejv: since its only 1 drive then i dont see how metadata being recreated will do anything, if something is corrupted on sda then it will be corrupted on sdb when it resyncs22:25

montassarbut I can't update the systemany more, even the update manager wich I tried to update from, always died always with an error23:06
dr_willis!info winehq23:06
ubottuPackage winehq does not exist in quantal23:06
dr_willisive never heard of winehq..23:06
gigglefightdarkhalo117: i have. i get there are no proprietary drivers available.23:07
dr_willistheres the wine channel called that i think23:07
ClientAlivewhen I do "sudo apt-get upgrade" there is a whole slew of packages listed that are being "kept back". Why? Looking at the names they appear important.23:07
ubottuWINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu23:07
SonikkuAmericamontassar: "It is impossible to install or remove any software"?23:07
dr_willisgigglefight:   you dont use wine to install video card drivers.,23:07
montassarI didn't try, I just want to update to 12.10..23:07
darkhalo117Clientalive, if you are using the LTE it will not install the beta software so packages will be left out23:08
SonikkuAmericamontassar: Does [ sudo apt-get install -f ] in a terminal work?23:08
darkhalo117You can change that in update manager23:08
dr_willismontassar:   You mean upgrade from 12.04 to 12.10?  Update is somthing else. ;)23:08
gigglefightdr_willis: then what is there to use? the file from the site is an .exe23:08
ActionParsnipClientAlive: if deps cannot be met then packages will not be installed. When they are satisfied they will come down23:08
montassaryes upgrade..23:08
dr_willisgigglefight:  no idea what you are doing.. but you DONT install video card drivers for your ati card with wine.23:08
dr_willisgigglefight:  if the card is very old then it may be  the FGLRX drivers no longer support it.23:09
dr_willisgigglefight:  and the included open sourced drivers are what the card uses.23:09
gigglefightdr_willis: it just maybe. problem with this server board is that i need a pci express x1 gpu; pci-x option is rare and/or too expensive. its on board vga, is bare minimum.23:10
montassarso I have http://paste.ubuntu.com/1413548/23:10
gigglefightdr_willis: yes. it's using open source23:11
gigglefightdr_willis: ...drivers23:11
dr_willismontassar:  you dont upgrade from an old release to a newer one via 'sudo apt-get upgrade'23:11
MonkeyDustmontassar  try sudo apt-get update, first23:11
dr_willismontassar:  exactly HOW are you trying to go from 12.04 to 12.10 ?23:11
montassarI did, afer that?23:12
* MonkeyDust hasnt followed and keeps silent23:12
montassarsudo apt-get upgrade23:12
dr_willisupgrade - will upgrade the current release to the latest packges in the current release. NOT to the next release23:12
dr_willisUnless you have been messing with the sources.list ;)23:13
ClientAlivedarkhalo117: I run 12.04 lts (is that what you were referring to?). ActionParsnip: Does that apply to upgrades of packages that are installed on the system as well?23:13
montassarno I didn't23:13
dr_willismontassar:  so im asking exactly HOW/what exactly have you done.  you are trying to go from 12.04 to 12.10  correct?23:13
SonikkuAmericamontassar: If you want to upgrade to 12.10 make sure your software software sources say "For any new version" then run Update Manager, or, in a terminal, type [ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade ]23:14
dr_williserr.. dist-upgrade does NOT upgrade to the next release either.23:14
SonikkuAmerica*redundnacy... Ugh!23:14
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade23:14
ubottuA 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.23:15
SonikkuAmericadr_willis: Oops, you're right. Use [ update-manager -c ]23:15
dr_willisactually i think theres some OTHER needed option for update-manager also23:15
SonikkuAmericadr_willis: Only if you want the next development release23:15
emxhow do i install skype without any :i386 packages? (146 mb just for skype is ...)23:15
SonikkuAmericaThe / -d / switch23:15
krabadorhi, i can't install nvidia-173, because the packages on the repos are not supporting xorg 1.13 . I  installed perfectly the .run package from nvidia, but i've 3d desktop issues, all right with 2d. what can i do?23:16
dr_willisor from LTS to a NON-LTS release i think..  but i always do clean installs. ;)23:16
zykotick9emx: you can't - skype IS 32bit, 64bit doesn't exist23:16
jribemx: does skype provide a 64bit package?  disk space is fairly abundant nowadays...23:16
zykotick9jrib: it's just the 32bit, with the required 32->64 libraries23:16
emxzykotick9, jrib. i see, using a virtualbox is the way to go :P23:17
jribemx: heh...23:17
StaidenHey guys, a buddy and I are using 10.10 server and we are having problems getting it connected to the internet. wonderd if you guys could give us some direction23:18
jrib!10.10 | Staiden23:18
ubottuStaiden: Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) was the thirteenth release of Ubuntu. !End-Of-Life on April 10th, 2012, see http://ubottu.com/y/maverick for details.23:18
SonikkuAmerica10.10 is no longer supportes.23:18
Staidenwe were going to use that because we wanted to use open panel23:19
SonikkuAmericaBut you can upgrade to at least Oneiric23:19
SonikkuAmericaEven better, Precise23:19
SonikkuAmericaOpen panel? What's that?23:19
Staidenits a open source Cpanel23:20
=== matt_ is now known as Guest52133
SonikkuAmericaIt doesn't work in Oneiric or Precise?23:20
emxhow do i activate mod_rewrite in apache?23:20
Staidennot sure23:20
gigglefightdr_willis: just found the wine install driver .exe thing didn't work. thanks for menioning it.23:20
jribemx: use a2enmod23:20
Staidenwe diddnt know if it would be compatible with the newer versions23:20
ActionParsnipStaiden: i recommend a clean install of Precise. It is supported til April 201723:21
Staidensounds good to me :023:21
SonikkuAmericaStaiden: OpenPanel now distributes a lightweight version of OpenPanel called OpenApp which is supported on all supported versions of Ubuntu23:21
MakdaamI just installed byobu, and there aren't many settings under F9, how can I configure the hardstatus line?23:23
kandinskiI have found out my .bash_profile is not being read. `which sh` gives me /bin/sh, which is a symlink to dash. However, my .bashrc is being read. What is going on?23:23
Staidenyou guys rock, i should have been on here last night23:24
b0otAnyone know how to use dnsmasq to have one hostname resolve to multiple IP addresses (based on priority/availablity)23:24
jribkandinski: what shell is your login shell?23:24
kandinskion the other side, echo $SHELL says /bin/bash, and my login shell is... (I can see it in /etc/passwd, right?)23:24
emxjrib, thanks23:25
jribkandinski: what makes you believe that .bash_profile is not being sourced?23:25
SonikkuAmericaSee you later everyone!23:25
kandinskijrib, I `$ exec $SHELL` to launch a new environment, and my $PATH remains unmodified23:26
jribkandinski: .bash_profile (by the way ubuntu has a .profile by default but if you've created a .bash_profile it will be preferred) will only be sourced for a login shell23:27
Makdaamnvm, fixed it by `apt-get purge byobu` and editing .screnrc by hand :)23:27
kandinskiwhereas if I run by hand the `export PATH` comand I have, I see the new $PATH23:27
kandinskijrib, hmm, so not any shell I launch from X?23:28
* kandinski goes read documentation about differences between .bash_profile and .bashrc23:28
kandinskijrib, is ubuntu standard in this behaviour?23:28
jribkandinski: right.  But ~/.profile (maybe ~/.bash_profile too) will get sourced when you login initially and your shells in X will inherit those values.  This is standard bash behavior, it's documented in « man bash »23:29
ActionParsnipkandinski: do you have ~/.profile and ~/.bashrc ?23:29
kandinskijrib, thanks. will read difference between .bashrc (where I plop everything, really) and .bash_profile (which was empty until I read these instructions for rbenv)23:29
dr_williskandinski:  to a 'xterm -ls' (for login shell) and .bash_profile will be read..   I belive.. normal 'xterm' it will not23:30
jribkandinski: you should notice that ~/.profile is not empty.  PATH changes are something you should be doing in ~/.profile23:30
kandinskiI did have a .profile, but I now find that it will not be read now that I have a .bash_profile23:30
jribkandinski: correct23:30
kandinskioh, thanks everyone. I am writing now a fix to these instructions I found. is .profile ubuntu-only?23:31
Ampersandre-hi everyone! I uninstalled (purge) both telepathy-haze and empathy (did autoremove after that)... reinstalled them... but no luck there, still the aliases are not shown23:31
kandinskithese are the instructions: https://github.com/sstephenson/rbenv23:31
Staidendoes Precise have a sever version?23:31
kandinskiI'd like to fix them so the next ubuntu user that finds them doesn't fall in the same trap I did23:31
jribkandinski: I'm fairly certain I remember some users coming in here because of that page; would be nice to have it fixed23:32
kandinskiso a couple more questions. Is .profile ubuntu-only? If so, what's the rationale to deviate from the bash standard .bash_profile?23:32
kandinskiso the current info has a Zsh note. I will add a Ubuntu note along the lines of:23:33
gigglefightdr_willis: just realized that i need to reboot. after the reboot, i will type: "sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle" into terminal.23:33
kandinski"Ubuntu note: path modification should be done in .profile, not in .bash_profile."23:33
jribkandinski: both would work, it's just that ubuntu already sets up a .profile by default and as you noted it won't get executed if a user creates a .bash_profile23:34
jribkandinski: http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual/bash.html talks about ~/.profile so I assume it's not ubuntu-specific23:35
kandinskiso it would be better to word it "ubuntu users are advised to add path changes to their .profile, not their .bash_profile"23:36
jribkandinski: sure, that seems reasonable23:36
dr_willislink the 2 files. ;)23:37
ActionParsnipkandinski: run:  sudo cp /root/.bash $HOME; sudo cp /root/.profile $HOME; sudo chown $USER:$USER ~/.bashrc; sudo chown $USER:$USER ~/.profile; source ~/.bashrc    and you will have a stock bashrc etc23:38
Panikhey can I ask for help here? I'm running Ubuntu but am having a problem with syncing Ipod library... should I be asking here or somewhere else ?23:38
Staidenwhats the best software to make a ubuntu install usb key when using windows 723:38
=== nerd is now known as fire_wall
jribActionParsnip: the stock files are in /etc/skel/23:38
jribPanik: here is fine23:39
kandinskiand then where it says "Restart your shell so the path changes take effect.", say `$ exec $SHELL -ls`23:39
kandinskiok, clear23:39
hauckanyone know any reasonable open source POS systems for linux, ubuntu specifically?23:39
kandinskiActionParsnip: that would be catastrophic for me; I have a very customised .bashrc23:39
crimsonmanepoint of sale, hauck ?23:39
jribkandinski: well just keep in mind that will only affect the current shell23:39
* kandinski makes a note to save his dotfiles somewhere23:39
hauckcrimsonmane: yes23:40
kandinskijrib, but that's the problem that has been hounding me23:40
crimsonmanehauck: LemonPOS23:40
Panikokay well I tried using Banshee, and uh Rhythmbox, now  when I connect my ipod mini I see all my files and I'm trying to sync my new library so it deletes all my music on my ipod and then copies shit over, and its all fine and dandy until I disconnect my ipod then it like reverts back to my old library and just trips out23:40
jribkandinski: afaik, you have to log out and back in if you are making changes to ~/.profile23:40
kandinskiI haven't logged in again since I installed rbenv, so it isn't working for me. I will add that this needs to be done until one logs in again.23:40
dr_willissome good info on .profile vs .bash_profile here23:40
dr_willis http://superuser.com/questions/183870/difference-between-bashrc-and-bash-profile23:40
crimsonmanePanik: you have to "safely remove" or "eject" the ipod. it doesn't write the files immediately, it stores them in ram23:41
kandinskijrib, I am 99.99% sure these instructions are written from and for MacOS23:41
Panikcrimsonmane I did tho23:41
PanikI clicked eject in banshee23:41
crimsonmanePanik: i can be of no further assistance. good luck. i hope all works out for you :(23:41
kandinskiwhen I have some time I am going to test them on my wife's computer, see if they work there. Maybe MacOS shells source the .profile with every invocation of the terminal. I dunno.23:41
Paniklol thanks you evil person jk23:41
=== Monotoko is now known as Guest869
Panikdoes freenode have a ipod channel?23:42
crimsonmanePanik: when you eject inside banshee does it unmount it from the filesystem?23:42
jribkandinski: probably, the terminal emulator might just spawn a login shell everytime23:42
ActionParsnipkandinski: I see23:42
dr_williskandinski:  OS_X is based on BSD. so it may not be using the same 'bash' as linux23:42
Panikyou mean like within banshee ?23:42
Panikor from my file manager?23:42
ActionParsnipkandinski: try the .profile file at least :)23:42
crimsonmanePanik: you should eject it using the file manager (or terminal if you prefer) but i do not know if ejecting it from banshee does the same thing23:42
kandinskithanks everyone, though. I have fixed my problem and also found a way to fix the instructions for the project. Yay!23:42

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