Neytirithanks00:01
Mech0zany way to remove all settings for an app installed with apt-get?00:02
gacMech0z: "apt-get purge packagename" should remove all config files that were shipped with it, if they were created by you after it was installed that won't work though.00:03
KI4ROKBentley57, Well, I made it back with a new BIOS LOL  No change in the RESTART button00:06
Ledderalfabit i still got the same problem00:06

Ledderalfabit and i can't manage to uninstall it00:07
KI4ROKBentley57, Do I need to clean up after myself in pastebin?00:07
cuddylierHow do I update my java 7jdk? My version doesn't include jstack unfortunately.00:08
alfabitLedder: Try: sudo apt-get install --reinstall virtualbox00:08
mcsmashWho's idea was it to move handling the video into the kernel?  I spotted a web site that said it was to enable high resolution non flickering splash screen.  Tell me there was another reason for doing that...00:09
Ledderalfabit "No suitable module for running kernel found"00:10
alfabitLedder: that's normal. Now we just need to get it to make that module..00:10
alfabitLedder: sudo apt-get install --reinstall virtualbox-dkms00:10
Ledderok and that's the question how we get htat done00:11
jhansonxiNeytiri: dpkg-query -S <filename>00:11

Ledderok no fail message with the dkms00:12
alfabitLedder, now try sudo apt-get install --reinstall virtualbox  (yup - again)00:13
Ledderalfabit you suggest i try again or something else to do?00:13
alfabitLedder, let's see if you get the error about no modules again, now that dkms sources are installed.00:13
Leddertwice a ok00:13
Ledderlooks not bad00:14
alfabitLedder, now what happens when you start VirtualBox ?00:14
Ledderok i try to remake a win7 installation00:14
jhansonxiKI4RO: Are you having problems getting your system to restart properly?00:15
KI4ROjhansonxi, Yes00:16
Ledderok windows is loading but is giving an error message00:16
jhansonxiTry adding the "reboot=bios" kernel parameter to your grub boot line00:16
Ledderwich is related to the iso source00:16
Ledderi guess00:16
jhansonxiKI4RO: In addition to the "reboot=bios" parameter, there are several other possible options: http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt00:18
KI4ROjhansonxi, reboot=bios?  What is that?00:18
jhansonxiKI4RO: It tells the kernel to use a different method when attempting to restart the system.00:19
KI4ROjhansonxi, Okay, never tried that...how does it work?00:19
jhansonxiKI4RO: See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions  and  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub200:20

KangArieLedder, what windows version? XP, 7, 8 ?00:32
Shuboni_Good evening, I was hoping someone could help me out with a problem I'm having.  It's kind of going in circles, and has been for a while now.00:32
KangArieShuboni_, what problem?00:33
Shuboni_Well, I'm trying to install Steam.  When I try to install it using gdebi, it says that I need zenity 3.4.0.  So, I try to install zenity, again with gdebi.  I get an error saying I need zenity-common.00:34
Ledder7 i try00:34
jhansonxiShuboni_: Use your package manager to install Zenity (Ubuntu Software Center, Synaptic Package Manager, aptitude, apt-get, etc.)00:35
Shuboni_I tried, but the package manager says that I already have it.00:35
Shuboni_Yet, Steam says I don't.00:35
Shuboni_Er... gdebi says I don't when I try to install Steam00:36
jhansonxiShuboni_: Try: sudo apt-get -f install00:37
Shuboni_jhansonxi:  Let me try that.00:38
jhansonxiShuboni_: Note that the steam package is just a downloader for the client.  Each user has to install their own copy of the client.  They will be prompted to do so when they log in.00:38
=== Jackson is now known as Guest7797
Shuboni_So, I tried sudo apt-get -f install, then I looked in the software center, and that said that I already had it installed.  I tried installing Steam using gdebi, and I got this error: Dependency is not satisfiable: zenity (>= 3.4.0-0ubuntu4)00:41
jribShuboni_: apt-cache policy zenity00:41
jribShuboni_: first run "sudo apt-get update" though00:41
jhansonxiShuboni_: Then it's not missing but the version installed is too old for Steam00:42
jhansonxiShuboni_: What version of Ubuntu are you using?00:42
Shuboni_jhansonxi: I'm using 11.0400:43
alfabitShuboni_, yes, I am on 12.10 and I have 3.4.0-2. Looks like they didn't leave much room for older versions.00:43
jhansonxiShuboni_: Steam is targeting Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin)00:43
Shuboni_jhansonxi:  I had a lot of problems installing 12.04, that's why I stuck with 11.04.00:43
jhansonxiShuboni_: The version of Zenity in the 11.04 repositories is apparently too old.00:44
jacesffor some reason i get sound only from one website, my personal music server. i get no audio through amarok, mocp, pandora website, nothing. any ideas?00:45
Shuboni_jhansonxi:  Does this mean that the only way for me to get this to work is to upgrade to 12.04?00:45
jhansonxiShuboni_: You could try 12.10 or, depending on the problems you encountered, Linux Mint 13 or newer.  It's probably not feasible to get Zenity on 11.04 but you could look for a PPA or backports with the newer Zenity.00:46
Shuboni_jhansonxi:  I'm sorry, could you explain how I might go about doing that?00:47
jhansonxiShuboni_: "PPA" repositories are unsupported repositories from various individuals.  Search for "zenity ppa" to see if any exist then check them for packages for "natty" (the release name for 11.04).  The "backports" repositories are semi-official and can be enabled through Synaptic.00:49
alfabitI am fighting a Streamzap infrared remote + infrared receiver on Ubuntu. Have a 10.10 installation and a 12.04 and live CDs for 11.10 and 12.10.00:51
mrgtubuntu won't boot. getting "gave up waiting for root device" message.00:52
alfabitThe Streamzap is detected on all releases but only mode2 shows keypresses, nothing in irw.00:52
alfabitDoes anyone here have a working remote control setup on any recent Ubuntu release ?00:53
jhansonximrgt: Couldn't find the / volume.  Is this a new install or a previously functioning Ubuntu system?00:53
Shuboni_How do you enable the backports repositories?00:55
mrgtjhansonxi, previously functioning. In additional drivers I selected the experimental driver to try and get my screen to adjust to the correct resolution . Suppose that's what I get for selecting something like that : /00:55
jhansonxiShuboni_: In the Synaptic package manager there is a menu option for configuring repositories.  The other method is to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file directly (not recommended unless you know what you are doing).00:56
jhansonximrgt: A video driver shouldn't affect that.  But if the driver required the creation of a kernel image, and the system ran out of space on the / volume, the image may be incomplete.  Also, are you using RAID? Encryption?00:57
mrgtjhansonxi, that's weird. There was plenty of space.. I'm not using RAID or Encryption .00:58
jhansonximrgt: You can try a previous kernel by holding down the Shift key during boot (before Ubuntu loads) to access the grub boot menu.  Then select one of the other kernel images.  But it's possible that something else failed and the video driver change is coincidental.00:59
mrgtjhansonxi, okay. will do.00:59
Shuboni_Hey, jhansonxi , does 12.04 have those stupid app things on the side or does it have a toolbar like 11.04?  That was the biggest problem when I tried to install it.01:00
hangdeadmanHey my wireless mouse just stopped working on ubuntu 12.04 how can I figure out what the problem is?01:00
mrgtjhansonxi, at the grub menu. I get 4 options. Which one should I select?01:00
alfabithangdeadman, check the batteries ?01:01
OerHekshangdeadman, renew the battery's and see if that solves it01:01
mrgtjhansonxi, I get Ubuntu, Advanced Options.., Memory test.., memory test01:01
jacesffor some reason i get sound only from one website, my personal music server. i get no audio through amarok, mocp, pandora website, nothing. any ideas?\01:01
jhansonximrgt: The top one will be your current kernel.  Try an older version (if any).01:02
hangdeadmanOerHeks:  batteries are good. the light is also still on on the mouse. it just doesn't move my pointer anymore. i have restarted my system and still have the same problem.01:02
mrgtjhansonxi, there doesn't seem to be an older one :/01:02
mrgtjhansonxi, oh.. wait01:03
alfabithangdeadman, have you already un-plugged and re-plugged the wireless mouse receiver?01:03
hangdeadmanalfabit: yes01:03
alfabithangdeadman, while Ubuntu was running, right ?01:03
hangdeadmanyes, also while the system was powered down.01:04
OerHekshangdeadman, maybe the mouse is broken, if the light works but does not respond and unplug/plgin the adapter does not solve it01:04
OerHekshangdeadman, you had problems with it yesterday too, didn't you ?01:05
hangdeadmanno, this is the first time i've had problems with my mouse.01:05
nonohttp://www.ritimo.org/01:06
alfabithangdeadman, yes, I agree with OerHeks, might be a good idea to verify on a 2nd computer, or while booted from a live CD..01:06

Guest10928nick sinan01:11
jhansonximrgt: If this is a new installation then it won't have any older kernels because it has never updated the kernel yet.  One possibility - if you have (or had) a removable drive (USB flash, etc.) connected when you booted, it may cause the BIOS to change drive IDs which can confuse Grub.  Try removing it.01:13

nonoDerHeks/ oki sorry01:31
alfabitqkit, maybe your package list is confused (a recent major version upgrade?)01:32
jhansonxialcaprawn: The Linux driver would be either fglrx (closed source driver from AMD) or radeon (open source)01:32

qkitalfabit: i'm using ubuntu 12.0401:33

alfabitqkit, you are on 12.04, how do you usually install packages? Did apt-get just stop working recently ?01:35
alcaprawnit did happen before but i forgot how i fixed it >.< and iv been using slackware ever since01:35
qkitalfabit: normally i using apt-get install01:36
jhansonxialcaprawn: There are two ways to install it - Jockey (the Ubuntu "Additional Drivers" applet) or manually using the installer from AMD's web site.  The radeon driver is missing many features and may not support power management on your card.01:36
OerHeksalcaprawn, maybe xorg-edgers ppa with newer drivers solve your issue > https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa01:37
alfabitqkit, are simpler packages installing correctly? (sudo apt-get install symlinks, for example?)01:38

qkithow can i enable multiverse and universe?01:42
alfabitqkit, in a normal/unmodified sources.list they will be predefined for you, but may have been commented out (or the mirror could have dropped those collections)01:42

CrellHi all.  I've just upgraded a system from 12.04 to 12.10.  Overall it seems to be working but it's booting the wrong kernel.  It's still booting a 3.2 kernel, and every entry in grub's menu.list file is labeled 12.04.  What goofed, and how do I correct it?02:07

amminiHi there, I'm a Fedora user and now setting up Ubuntu 12.10 in my wife's laptop. In Fedora we've delta rpms which would have only the diff from the earlier version and apply that diff on updates to the existing packages. Is there something similar in deb as well, which I can install and save some network bandwidth on updates? Thanks..02:34

alfabitammini, sorry, you are in for some hefty update downloads..02:36
QuestIs there a free and good screen + audio (from mic and sound card) recorder so that I can upload that video to YouTube?02:36
amminialfabit: Nothing I'd do to speed up the update downloads? (Other than bumping up my ISP bandwidth? ;))02:36
alfabitammini, choosing a nearby mirror is the best option.02:37
amminialfabit: Oh! Ok. Thanks. I'll make sure I'm using a nearby one.02:38
alfabitantivapor: not certain, but with nomodeset you should be able to add vga=791 etc. options to the kernel command line.02:38
amminiIn fact yesterday while I was installing 12.10, I'd the installer connected to uplink, thinking that it'd pull down the latest packages from web.02:39
alfabitthat will give you framebuffer and (hopefully) splash screen.02:39
alfabitammini, usually it does. I hate doing updates as part of an install, I prefer to install, then pull out all of the ubuntu packages I don't need.02:39
alfabitammini, saves me some time because I'm not updating things I don't use (empathy, gwibber, ubuntu-one stuff etc.)02:40
antivaporthanks alfa! Ill try that.02:40
KxTwoHey guys, any thoughts on why my laptop runs hotter when I run ubuntu than when I run windows?02:40
amminiNow I'm downloading some 250M+ of updates, which I think is updates to the stock packages version from the pristine installation - or does Ubuntu push that much updates to the mirror in one go?02:41
sannaim back and still; WLAN not working :/02:41
KxTwoKind of annoying as I was hoping it would run cooler02:41
alfabitammini, that's about right. You are getting all of the updates since 12.10 was released, now, after a new install.02:41

KxTwoit was overheating before and burnt out my battery, so now I monitor my temp02:51
alfabitKxTwo: If you have a BIOS interface to the temperatures as well..reboot into that and see if it's still reporting in the 60s02:52
KxTwoim actually lucky it even works it used to get so hot it would shut off02:52
alfabitKxTwo: that could give you a measure of 'is psensors accurate'02:52
alfabitKxTwo, next, I would check launchpad and see if any open issues deal with misreporting temp sensors on 12.1002:52

alfabitkelvinella: 12.04.1 is 12.04+updates. You don't need to re-download if you already have the 12.04 iso, the updates can just be downloaded after installation.02:59

KxTwojhansonxi, I wondered that too but dont really know how to confirm it03:01
jhansonxiKxTwo: Most sensor apps obtain their info from lm-sensors or ACPI.03:01
jhansonxiKxTwo: Does psensors show the CPU running at the max speed always or does it change based on load?03:02
KxTwojhansonxi, yah eI think psensors does as well03:02

KxTwoit changes03:03
* OerHeks allways wonders why people think windows show correct temp03:04
jhansonxiKxTwo: Based on that I don't think it is the CPU or fan that is the problem.  Possibilities are GPU or faulty sensor readings (more likely GPU).03:04
jhansonxiKxTwo: What GPU and driver are you using?03:04
KxTwohmm you might be right03:05
KxTwoI could have sworn that psensors used to display gpu temp but its not on this install which means wrong driver03:05

KxTwofor somer eason I have two temp 1's im assuming thats the cores.03:06
jhansonxiKxTwo: That would use either vesa (default generic driver for anything), radeon (open-source driver with many limitations), or fglrx (AMD closed-source driver).  If you have the AMD Catalyst Control Center app then you are using fglrx.03:07
KxTwothis ubuntu has some changes from the last one.  The software updater is different and I dont see the third party driver installer.03:07
KxTwoahh that is what that catalyst was for on my last install03:07
KxTwoI think I went through all this when I installed mint but forgot what I did03:08
jhansonxiKxTwo: I think Jockey (the "Additional Drivers" app) was removed and the Ubuntu Software Center installs the drivers now.  I'm on Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) so I still have Jockey.03:08
KxTwoI at first tried to use the third party driver installer but had problems with it, I can't even find it on this install.03:08

KxTwojhansonxi, ok, unless you have any other expert advice to give me i am going to go download ubuntu 12.04 64 bit default and worry about DE later after checking out what you recommended.03:24
jhansonxiKxTwo: Have fun :D03:24
bryguy_hm,  maybe I did install a ppa at some point, argh. I've been using rpm based distros for a long time this is frustratingly different03:25
RadmintegrityI was able to pull gigs of swf files from the partitioon using easeus linux recovery, but get an error when I open them, i think because they are encoded, does this make sense or am I clutching at straws?03:25
jhansonxiroasted: Easy test - replace rm -r with ls03:25

Radmintegrityvlc?03:26
kelvinellai think you can drag swf to firefox and it will open maybe?03:26
tekkbuzzopps , yes.03:26
jhansonxiRadmintegrity: Identifying files with a corrupt directory is difficult since file name extensions are missing.  The recovery tool may have simply guessed wrong about the types of files it found.03:27
RadmintegrityCurses03:27
alfabitRadmintegrity, yes. It sounds surprising that a video survillance would encode to swf..03:28
Ben64jhansonxi, Radmintegrity: linux stuff usually doesn't care about file extensions, it uses magic bits03:28
jhansonxiRadmintegrity: You also need to be sure how the drive was originally configured, RAID/LVM/dm-crypt, in addition to what filesystem it used.03:28
jimmy_extremealfabit:03:28
tekkbuzzRadmintegrity, try using file <filename>03:28
alfabitRadmintegrity, try using the 'file' utility on one of the recovered files, see what it reports. And vlc shouldn't care - like Ben64 says.03:28
jimmy_extremealfabit:03:29
jimmy_extremeyes I am trying to install RHEL on another partition03:29
jhansonxiBen64: No guarantee that the magic bits are intact with a corrupt filesystem.03:29
Ben64if the headers are gone, then it's pretty hard to make a file work again03:29
tekkbuzzLinux doesn't care about filename extensions, it's only for user convenience.03:29
alfabitjimmy_extreme, it is very easy to install rhel (and centos) over PXE, if you have another linux machine you can configure for that.03:30
RadmintegrityI was cautious to keep the drive in read only mode...so if I go about this from the ubuntu os I may be able to accomplish something, right?  Ok, I will be right back as I am required to restart my Windows 8 PC (I decided to chat with you good people before even  booting into Ubuntu)  Back in a few moments, and thank you for your help thus far.03:30

jimmy_extremealfabit:03:31
jimmy_extremeWhat is PXE? I'm kind of new to Linux. I only have one Linux box, currently only running Ubuntu desktop 12.4 LTS03:31
alfabitjhansonxi, Ben64 - did Radmitegrity say the disk was corrupted? It sounds to me like he just isn't familar with linux but trying to get files off an ext-style partition from windows.03:32
Ben64alfabit: I don't think he ever specified03:32
jhansonxialfabit: Radmintegrity did say "lost" data03:32
alfabitjimmy_extreme: don't worry about PXE then. It is a network install method but, you don't have a second machine to set up with.03:32
alfabitjimmy_extreme: I've never done a USB install of CentOS but I'm sure it is possible, and that would be the next easiest way.03:33
Ben64unetbootin should work for that03:33

Ali3nat0rHi, I just installed 1210 as a dual boot on my Windoze 7 box, and I'm having issues with the graphics; YouTube in HD 720 or 1080 lags like HELL from Ubuntu however it runs fine on Win. I installed the AMD Catalyst drivers on Ubuntu hoping it would help but it didn't, any advice please? :)03:59
Ali3nat0rI also imagine it's not just YouTube but any video, however I don't have any 720 files to check it with03:59
jhansonxilobhater1: Don't start at / if logged in as root else it will grep through /dev and every byte of every hard drive.03:59
wa5qjhone more.. how do I get mysql to start on boot-up ?04:01
wa5qjhin U11.04 ?04:01
ohshitgorillasAli3nat0r: have you tried the open source driver? I don't know what all you'll be doing with this but if you're not playing any 3d games you can try the open source ATI driver04:01
ohshitgorillasAli3nat0r: I've had nothing but frustrations and headaches dealing with catalyst04:02
jhansonxiwa5qjh: Most start-up daemons are in /etc/init or /etc/init.d depending on if they are Upstart jobs or init scripts.04:02
skr_tornado: any idea after seeing the strace...04:02
Ali3nat0rWhat is the one that auto installs and configures with Ubuntu? I had a 1080p resolution on Desktop right off the bat with that, and 480p YouTube worked but again 720/1080 lagged to hell04:02
jhansonxiwa5qjh: Some daemons won't start unless they are configured first, usually somewhere in /etc.  MySQL may want a password set first.04:03
ohshitgorillasAli3nat0r: you have the catalyst control center installed, too, right? have you tried adjusting some of the settings?04:03
Ali3nat0rThe only reason I didn't nuke the Win7 partition is to still play games but I don't fancy switching back there just to watch videos04:04
KI4ROwa5qjh, cq cq cq04:04
Ali3nat0rYeah, I have done and it all seems to relate to gaming more than anything04:04
ohshitgorillasCould someone explain to me why Ubuntu Software Center refreshes every five seconds and is unresponsive the other half of the time?04:05
ohshitgorillasAli3nat0r: sounds like you need someone with actual troubleshooting experience (ie not me), sorry :P04:05
jhansonxiAli3nat0r: Search with Google for "fglrx hd flash slow" and you'll find some bug reports about the problem04:06
ohshitgorillaswhen I used an ATI driver I had major issues with video playback for a while and using catalyst was the only way to get HDMI audio. from my experience the driver is something like half trainwreck half abortion04:06
Ali3nat0rHmm will do, and I had HDMI audio before installing ATI04:07
ohshitgorillaslucky you =P04:07
Ali3nat0rI'm guessing that got included in the 1210 release04:07
Ali3nat0rUbuntu has generally worked right out of the box with most hardware I've thrown at it, but the stuff that hasn't worked has been a BITCH to sort out04:08
Ali3nat0rUnlike Windows where the opposite holds04:08

JonnyRoAnything offhand i should try?04:31
jagginessroasted, rmdir a b c d e f g    << a b c d e f g are subfolders04:31
roastedjagginess: here's the problem. This is formy video surveillance on my property. I have a find command that nukes all files older than 3 days, but the problem is I have empty directories left over. The cameras create directories for the feeds based on date/hour/minute.04:31
skr_thoonai:i cant even find /usr/share/ubuntu/glib-2.0 folder..04:31
jagginessroasted, ?04:31
roastedjagginess: so when my script runs at midnight to clean up the feeds and delete files older than 3 days, it leaves the empty parent folders behind. So this little project is to automate the removal of theempty directories left behind.04:31
jagginessroasted, is it backed up?04:32
roastedjagginess: yeah04:32
pythoralfabit, No, the USB I'm talking about now is the SuperGrubDisk iso.  My actual CD drive doesn't work, so it's not an actual disk.04:32
skr_thoonai:i cant even find /usr/share/ubuntu/glib-2.0 folder.. this folder is in /usr/share/glib-2.004:32
jagginessroasted, so instead of "copying" it to the system you want to delete it to, why not do copying to a mountpoint directly?04:32
alfabitpythor: Ok. That makes sense, gotcha. Here's my suggestion: once you're booted, do a sudo apt-get install --reinstall grub204:32
=== devil is now known as Guest50555
roastedjagginess: er, copy? what am I copying?04:32
jagginess,/you want to delete it "from"/04:33
thoonaiskr_: ... ok please try to make a ymlink to /usr/share/ubuntu ^^04:33
jagginessroasted, you "deleting" it or moving it?04:33
alfabitpythor: and: once you're booted, before you reinstall grub..take the USB drive out, to avoid problems on hard disk detection step.04:33
thoonaiproblem: read-only device needs music soon, how do i get it writable?04:33
roastedjagginess: I'm trying to remove the empty directories left behind from the automatic removal of files older than 3 days04:33
raibornhello to all, i need some orientation please :(04:33
thoonairaiborn: o/04:34
skr_thoonai: i will try that let you know...04:34
pythoralfabit, I can't do that.  apt-get gives me an error about broken packages, and a dependency: "grub2 : Depends: grub-pc (= 1.99-21ubuntu3.4) "04:35
jagginessroasted, automatic removal of files?04:35
roastedjagginess: nevermind04:35
jagginessroasted, sounds like an odd script to delete video files..04:35
thoonairaiborn: ask your question04:35
roastedjagginess: It's a perfectly logical script.04:35
roastedjagginess: how else would you remove files older than 3 days besides find?04:35
raibornhello thoonai, im new to linux systems and im setting up a ubuntu server, i already installed all the lamp stuff, i can access locally to my sites, but when i try to access from outside the local network it wont let me :(04:35
jagginessroasted, if you explain as to why you're deleting things, and where thigns are being backed up.. it'll be easier to accomplish the same task..04:35
Ali3nat0rroasted: seeing half the conversation, but on my server I back up databases every day at 00:00, everything is in a known filename format like sql-database1-03-Jan-12 and I do automatic removal after 5 days, is this what you're on about but with video directories?04:35
raibornsorry im a little slow, english is not my native04:35
roastedjagginess: simple. disk space.04:35
roastedjagginess: my cameras take up 50GB per day,and I have 2.... so that's 100GB a day. So yes, I only want 3 days of footage.04:36
alfabitpythor: you definitely want grub-pc. If it can't be installed..we need to solve that first.04:36
thoonairaiborn: ok tell me whats your webserver04:36
roastedjagginess: so the script removes feeds older than 3 days from the surveillance directory. Problem is, then I have a folder for each of those days remaining, and a folder ofr each hour within those days remaining... however... they're empty.04:36
roastedjagginess: so I'm trying to automate the removal of the now-empty folders.04:36
thoonairaiborn: you possibly bind the webserver to localhost and not to domain or ip04:37
roastedAli3nat0r: not entirely04:37
thoonaiproblem: read-only device needs music soon, how do i get it writable?04:37
alfabitpythor: You have a network connection once your system starts up, right? Does sudo apt-get update work without errors?04:37
jagginessroasted, ok.. so why not make a symlink?04:37
roastedjagginess: what on earth will a symlink do forme?04:37
raibornso instead of localhost i must put the private ip address?04:37
jagginessroasted, your script is badly made04:37
roastedjagginess: my script is made as per what dozens of Google searches recommend.04:37
jagginessroasted, just delete by date04:38
roastedjagginess: and I'll ask again, how on earth would a symlink help me here?04:38
thoonairaiborn: yeah this would be the first point of failure ^^04:38
sannaMolotov?04:38
jagginessroasted, nmind that.. tried to find a cheap hack for ya.. easier is to use find by date04:38
roastedjagginess: No, I want to delete by folders older than 3 days. Hence -mtime +3 in find.04:38
MoL0ToVsanna04:38
MoL0ToVworks?04:38
roastedjagginess: I can't even have this conversation anymore. Thanks anyway.04:38

jagginessroasted, bye..04:38
sannaMolotov :/04:38
roastedholy hell04:38
raiborncould you please point me in the right direction?, what file i must edit in apache2?04:38
sannano :/ *04:38
MoL0ToV-> query04:39
roastedAli3nat0r: sorry, my setup isn't really dealing with backups, but basically the automatic rotation of files I have.04:39
thoonairaiborn: i think there must be an /etc/apache2/something.conf04:39
thoonaiproblem: read-only device needs music soon, how do i get it writable?04:39
roastedAli3nat0r: I found a logical and super easy way to rotate the video feeds, but as I said I'm left with empty directories those feeds once occupied, so now I'm trying to automate that portion of it.04:39
raibornthoonai: ok brb :)04:40
alfabitraiborn, it sounds like you are being blocked by a firewall on your local network. Maybe at your router ?04:40
raibornrouter doesnt have a firewall04:40
raiborni can access all my sites locally in every machine inside my network04:40
alfabitraiborn, if you run 'netstat -ant' do you see something on port 80 and 443 (assuming yes - since it works from other machines)04:41
thoonaialfabit: or he hasnt bind the pages to his ip04:41
nono8004:41
raibornill try change the localhost for the private address, brb04:41
thoonairaiborn: paste your apache conf somewhere and query it ^^04:41
raibornok wait please im not in the server right now04:41
Ali3nat0rroasted: Should be the same concept, a camera makes a file/directory with a name containing the date, in which case a script should search for file/directory names containing a date older than say 3 days old and rm them. An easier alternative is that directories don't take up much space at all, so you could just manually delete them when they get too much04:42
pythoralfabit, did you get my last message? (about the could not be downloaded error?)04:42
thoonaiplease help04:43
Ali3nat0r(What I used to do with my databases before they were as big as they are now)04:43
roastedAli3nat0r: yeah, and that's whatI've been doing, just for organizational purposes I was hoping to automate the directories as well.04:43
thoonaiwant go home, have no music and my mps is wp04:43
alfabitpythor, yes, you may have lost my messages. We need to fix your apt-get before we can fix grub. You definitely need grub-pc installed.04:44

replicashd i install thm to solve th problm04:49

thoonaivjacob: so can set the encryption of your homefolder after the setup if necessary04:50
jagginess(apt-get --reinstall install virtualbox)04:50

jagginessAli3nat0r, i have those two items checkmarked (its the flash default)05:29
KxTwoShould I use the additional drivers feature to install the FGLRX graphics driver?05:30
Pythoralfabit, those commands ran without any output.05:30

CoolChapChadhappy birthday to you 7782. i wish u a darkrai tonight05:30

alfabitHm. Good observation.05:31
cfhowlettI can't download CodeFree Magazine.  I'm in China and Wordpress is blocked.  Workarounds / Alternatives suggestions welcomed ...05:31
alfabitJordan_U, maybe Pythor should comment those out, and apt-get update ?05:31
CoolChapChadnub05:32
Pythoralfabit, Jordan_U, I'm willing to try it.05:32
thoonaiok05:32
thoonaieverything worked05:32
thoonai'have you tried it turn off and on again?'05:33
Ali3nat0rjagginess: I think I'm going to cut my losses since Chromium plays 720p stuff fine, just not 1080, I am getting a new CPU in a month or so anyway so that should sort it out. Offline video works fine at 1080 so it's got to be Flash whoring the CPU, since Win7 plays it fine. Cheers anyway05:33
Jordan_Ualfabit: No, conmenting out rarely helps as the packages causing the breakage are already installed. ppa-purge on all of them (which requires that they *not* be commented out) might help.05:33
thoonaiso skr_ no lets help you05:33
jagginessAli3nat0r, sometimes with hold hardware, the accel options for the driver aren't ideal..05:34
jagginessAli3nat0r, if its old hardware, its aggravating -- it could be one or two X options that makes a big difference..05:34
alfabitPythor, I'll let Jordan_U guide you from here, this is one reason why I avoid dist-upgrades on Ubuntu :-/05:34
KxTwoSo my LT was running kind of hot with 12.10 so it was suggested that it was possibly by GPU which is an ati radeon. so it was recommended to go to 12.04.  Im still running a little hot, around 60c.  Have things changed with the additional drivers feature, in the past when ive used it it hasnt worked?05:34

notNicolaswhen the computer wakes up from sleep, the screen's lighting stays darker and it keeps getting worse until it's completely black06:28

seednodeTesting, any luck?06:33
TestingPlease forgive me again for interupting, I never recall rooting my Ubuntu computer. Is it automatically rooted, or is it something to do later on? I'm pretty sure it's not rooted, so I'm pretty lost with the whole typing in my password for the su command. I recall earlier today getting the su command to accomplish fine, but after a reboot it keeps saying it's incorrect. I'm 100% sure my password is valid, since I tested changing my 06:34
Testingcorrect.06:34
TestingI'm very lost.06:34
TestingI'm not trying to specifcally use the sudo command, even though it's categorized it, I'd prefer to use the su command itself, if possible06:35
Testing*even though it's categorized under sudo06:35
milamber!root | Testing06:35
ubottuTesting: Do 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/RootSudo06:35
seednodeWell, you don't "root" your Ubuntu computer, Ubuntu has a root account by default06:36
seednodeLast I checked.06:36
OerHeksTesting, sudo <command> is the ubuntu way, root account is disabled06:36
seednodeI can't really think of a plus to using su...06:37
seednodeFor that usage, anyways06:37
OerHeksTesting the 1st user created during install, has root/administrator privelege06:38
Testingquote from the page I was forwarded to: it needs YOUR USER password, and not the Root account password.06:38
TestingI am typing in the user, admin's password.06:38
TestingWhy am I getting the error?!06:38
KxTwoahh I finally got it to work and my temp dropped a little bit06:39
seednodeWait, Ubuntu's root account is disabled? Dang, I wasn't actually aware of that.06:39
seednodeI guess that's what I get for not actually using it :/06:39
TestingI never rooted the computer.06:39
milamberTesting: what command are you typing in and what error are you getting?06:39
OerHeksTesting, "<Testing> Well the main objective for me to finalize is to flood a website" has nothing to do with ubuntu support, sorry, won't help you06:39
milamberTesting: you are using the term "rooted" incorrectly06:39
TestingThe objective is to get the su command to work.06:39
seednodeOerHeks: not saying I advocate flooding websites, but technically his question is support related06:40
TestingI cannot get terminal to recognize me, the admin as a superuser.06:40
KxTwothat must have been it, now that I have the driver its running only a few degrees above what it does on windows06:40
milamberTesting: you didn't actually answer the question06:40
Testingalan@alan-VPCEE31FX:~$ su Password:  su: Authentication failure alan@alan-VPCEE31FX:~$06:41
seednodeTesting, I think he means the command you want to run as su06:42
KxTwojust use sudo06:42
seednode^06:42
KxTwothough I msised most of what you were talking about06:42
milamberTesting: su is not going to work unless you set up a root account. you have to do: sudo <command> and then type in your password06:42
TestingSo for instance:06:42
Testingsudo ping (details here)?06:43
milamberTesting: (and setting up a root account is not supported here)06:43
seednodeYes, but ping shouldn't require root...06:43
KxTwoping doesnt require sudo06:43
KxTwowhat exactly are you trying to do?06:43

JamesdwadeIn terminal how would i run a .sh?06:49
milamberseednode: not really, there are valid reasons for it. one being anyone coming to this channel for assistance probably shouldn't be changing configurations related to administrative privileges without fully understanding the repercussions. it also makes things easier when trying to troubleshoot if we know what the default configuration is supposed to be06:49
wiiwwhen I connect my android phone, usb0 is appear in `ifconfig` , and my default route gateway is disappear , how to stop this ?06:49

seednodeWell, assuming you're using an APU, the GPU probably shares sensors with the CPU07:02
seednodeSince they're on the same chip07:02

seednodeTeufelchen, I honestly don't know why, as I've never asked one. Perhaps there's a new section, or the admins decided that they weren't a positive contribution to the community?07:04
goddardwhat is the chmod number for this and how do i know? drwxrwxr-x07:04

seednodeWell, I don't generally use DEs; I just install the programs I'll be using/.07:22
seednodeIt's more lightweight, and feels more streamlined07:22
KxTwoso you dont use a GUI at all?07:23
KxTwoor am I not as educated on the subect of what a DE is as I thought i was lol07:23
seednodeKxTwo, A DE is a window manager and a collection of programs/utilities07:24
seednodeA window manager still has a GUI07:24

raesiwith commands07:25
KxTwoseednode, I think its coming to me.  what is the GUI we use?  There isnt as many choices for that as DE's if I remember correctly07:25
seednodeWell, Ubuntu uses GNOME3 with compiz and the Unity plugin by default07:25
seednodeYou can also get Ubuntu with XFCE, LXDE, KDE, or GNOME207:26
seednodeThose are the common DEs07:26
KxTwoahh so I did have DE and GUI mixed up07:26
KxTwowhen I said DE I was referring to those07:26
ElectricPrismDesktop Environment = Full Cake, Window Manager = Piece of Cake07:26
seednodeYeah, I made that mistake quite a bit07:27
KxTwoElectricPrism, that is a beautiful way to educate the poitn!07:27
seednodeElectricPrism: Except in this case, the full cake has toppings you don't like07:27
KxTwoseednode, I think I had even learned it before but since im bouncing around a lot and not knee deep I tend to forget.07:27
KxTwoI don't notice people talkign about changing DE's but rather the GUI.  I take it you can mix and match GUI's Nd DE's though?07:28
seednodeWell, GUI is just a blanket term for a graphical interface07:28
seednodeAll DEs provide a GUI07:28
KxTwoyou said you are using a GUi without a DE?07:28
OerHeksA program can provide a gui *07:28
seednodeOerHeks: True, DEs aren't the only things that provide a GUI07:29
seednodeI'm just saying that, when installing a DE, you will also be installing some sort of GUI, correct?07:29
KxTwoI would assume07:29
KxTwoI have the default for 12.0407:29
KxTwounity?07:29
seednodeEh, not a fan of Unity, myself.07:29
seednodeI've never been a Ubuntu user in general, though.07:30
KxTwoI dont like the panel07:30
seednodeSo maybe it's just my mindset.07:30
ElectricPrismAfter more than a year they still wont let me move the panel to the bottom QQ07:30
OerHeksDE - desktop, that is a gui yes, but this de/gui discussion is slightly confusing07:30
ElectricPrismnot everyone has a 16:9 monitor07:30
KxTwoyah im confused by it too lol07:30
seednodeElectricPrism: I love my 4:3 panel07:30
seednodeKxTwo: To paraphrase, a DE will provide you with a graphical interface, but other things can, too.07:31
OerHeksElectricPrism, there is some PPA that lets you move the unity bar to the bottom, but it can break your system07:31
ElectricPrismseednode: They did a good job, I just wish I had minimal customizability options imo,07:31
seednodeEh, I just feel like the interface gets in my way.07:31
KxTwoseednode how about this, what is my DE for 12.04?07:32
seednodeOpenbox is there when I need it, gone the rest of the time.07:32
seednodeKxTwo: GNOME3 with Compiz07:32
ElectricPrismOerHeks: Yeah, I googled that today again and last time I heard it was working was 11.10 I think, It'd be nice if it worked in 13.04 or 12.1007:32
seednodeGNOME3 is the DE, Compiz is the desktop compositor (an optional part of a window manager)07:32
KxTwook so whats the GUI and what is Unity?07:32
OerHeksElectricPrism, i understand unity is still in development, some version will let you do that as a standard option07:32
seednodeWell, first, stop using GUI in that way. A GUI is a general term, like a "window"07:32
seednodeDon't use it as a specific part of a system07:33
seednodeUnity is a plugin for Compiz that provides the lenses and sidebar07:33
KxTwook well what is UNITY/07:33
KxTwois that it07:33
KxTwoI thought it was a DE and it replaced Gnome 307:33
KxTwowow now im really confused lol07:33
ElectricPrismOerHeks: That's good to hear07:34
Hwkillerunity is technically nothing more than a plugin for compiz07:34
seednodeNo, it adds on to GNOME307:34
Hwkillera unity session uses GNOME3 as the session and compiz as the window manager and compositor07:34
seednodeThough some would say it detracts from GNOME3 :P07:34
KxTwowell then cant I just turn it off and run gnome 3 on its own?  I kind of want the DE with the best speed.07:34
seednodeKxTwo, You can, yes.07:35
HwkillerKxTwo: well, you need a window manager07:35
seednodeBut GNOME3 is in no way the DE with "the best speed"07:35
bazhang!notunity | KxTwo07:35
ubottuKxTwo: 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 !classic07:35
seednodeGNOME3 uses metacity, by default?07:35
seednodeNot sure.07:35
KxTwosome one earlier said Phoronix benchmarked and testeda ll the comon de's but havent found where yet07:35
ElectricPrismon OpenDesktop.org Unity is classified as its own desktop, there's honestly soo much going on in the DE scene right now with the Cinamon fork of Gnome 3, MATE fork of Gnome 2, Unity using Gnome 3 shell as the base >:0 I can't wait till its over and there's a victor07:35
Hwkillerwell, gnome3 as a whole would use the gnome-shell, which uses metacity with mutter as a compositor (I think)07:35
seednodeKxTwo: From my personal experience, lightest to heaviest: LXDE, XFCE, GNOME2, GNOME3, KDE07:35
KxTwoI was forced to sue cinnamon at schoool and I didn't like it.07:36
KOunithow to execute a command as root when sudo isn't working.07:36
seednodeHowever, in terms of usability vs minimalism, GNOME2 struck a very nice balance07:36
Hwkiller'cept that it's dead... :p07:36
seednodeHwkiller, eh, it still works07:36
KxTwognome2 is what I used a couple of years ago, it was nice.07:37
ElectricPrismGnome 3.4's rough edges come off once you start installing extensions from http://extensions.gnome.org with the one click slider on, I personally circumvent their stupid window app menu by installing AxeMenu to give me a launcher07:37
EmanonHey all, is it safe to use ramdisks for directories like /tmp and whatnot? And if so does anyone know of a good how-to?07:37
seednodeEmanon, it should be safe; Google for a how-to, I don't know any off the top of my head07:37
seednodeI think /tmp uses a ramdisk by default, though...?07:37
seednodeI thought it uses tmpfs or something07:37
HwkillerEmanon: yes! /tmp is usually set up as a ramdisk basically07:37
ElectricPrismEmanon: when in doubt - arch wiki.07:37
Hwkilleryeah; it's tmpfs /tmp tmpfs :p07:37
KxTwohmm now I cant decide what to do07:38
ElectricPrismI hear some people merge /tmp and /var since they do similar things07:38
seednodeKxTwo, Try different ones, use what you like the most07:38
Snafuwhat07:38
Snafuthats horrid idea ElectricPrism07:38
KxTwowhat de does lubuntu come with?07:38
KxTwoxfce?07:38
HwkillerElectricPrism: they are stupid; don't merge those07:38
seednodeLubuntu uses LXDE07:38
Hwkiller /var and /tmp are in no way the same07:38
ElectricPrismXD07:38
KxTwoso maybe I should try that07:38
seednodeEhhh.07:38
KxTwoone thing I love is that I can change at login07:39
EmanonCool, so just toss tmpfs    <path to ramdisk>    tmpfs    rw,size=<size of ramdisk>,mode=777 0    0 into fstab basically?07:39
seednodeI still think you should go with a window manager and the programs you'll use07:39
Hwkillerlubuntu comes w/ lxde. xubuntu is xfce. kubuntu is kde.07:39
seednodebut that's just the Arch user in me speaking ^_^07:39
KxTwowhy ehh?07:39
KxTwoseednode, I dont knwo what that menas though07:39
seednodeI dislike the looks of LZDE07:39
seednodeLXDE*07:39
seednodeKxTwo: Yeah, I suppose for the time being you should use a DE07:39
KxTwo im not fully understanding what you mean by only using a windows manager  a07:39
HwkillerKxTwo: try it at some point and you'll understand.07:40
seednodeOnce you're more familiar, try switching to something like Openbox, or even a tiling WM if you'd like07:40
seednodeWhatever suits you.07:40
seednodeThat's the point of Linux, after all07:40
KxTwoHwkiller, Im not sure how to try it without knowing what it means.07:40
Hwkillera DE includes a suite of applications, a session manager, a settings manager, and usually a window manager. What he is suggesting is just using a window manager with whatever applications *you want*07:40
Hwkillerthat assumes however, that you know what you want :p07:40
KxTwoI would assume there is something to lsoe by only using a windows manager or everyone would do it07:40
seednodeA DE includes a multitude of programs, along with a window manager07:40
seednodeA window manager is all you need for a usable GUI07:41
Hwkillerwell, and a launcher would be smart07:41
seednodeKxTwo: Well, you "lose" the bloat that comes with most DEs :P07:41
seednodeHwkiller: Yeah, I use tint2 with openbox07:41
Hwkillerseednode: I did for a long time. Now I just use a tiler07:41
Hwkiller(I'm an arch dude too)07:41
seednodeOpenbox has a built-in launcher when you right-click, and tint2 keeps track of windows07:41
seednodeHwkiller, Yeah, I'm running i3 atm07:41
KxTwoHwkiller, i was thinking of trying arch but heard you had to do everythign from scratch07:42
zivestera DE comes with a basic taskbar, and usually something nice for configuring wireless networks and whatnot... I'm not sure if tiling windo managers come with those by default?07:42
seednodeKxTwo, I wouldn't recommend Arch for you until you've used a more user-friendly distro for a bit07:42
seednodezivester, A tiling WM doesn't come with anything but a taskbar, in most cases07:42
KxTwobelieve it or not ive been using linux off and on for eyars lol07:42
Hwkillerzivester: no, they don't. they're not meant to. they just tile your windows for you. You get anything else you want.07:42
HwkillerKxTwo: it's not hard, but only try it when you have a lot of time for a lot of reading. :p07:42
seednodeI personally use wicd-curses for network manager, tint2 for taskbar, and openbox for menu/window manager07:42
seednodeWhen I want to use a floating WM07:43
zivesterso do you configure networks form the command line or install the GTK/QT counterparts to administer them?07:43
KxTwoHwkiller, I guess my motivation is lacking since I dont really see any major advantages07:43
seednodeHwkiller: Eh, it only took me like 30 mins of reading to get Arch functional07:43
seednodezivester, I configure from the command line, but you can do either.07:43
Hwkillerseednode: getting it installed is easy. learning to configure your system and understanding why takes longer.07:43
seednodecurses makes CLI configuration really easy07:43
seednodeHwkiller: I suppose.07:43
dan_can someone post their lenny sources? i got, deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main and deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main07:44
zivesterjust curious.. I'm a gnome2, who escaped to xfce... wondering how far down the rabbit hole i should go07:44
dan_im getting server not found07:44
Hwkillerzivester: I use netcfg. It's commandline, but it's basically just bash scripts.07:44
KxTwonot to mention im on a laptop so imagine Ill have driver issues07:44
seednodeKxTwo: I've never really encountered driver issues07:44
KxTwowhen I log in I can chose between ubuntu and ubuntu 2d whats the difference?07:44
seednodenetcfg is okay, but I hate how it doesn't auto-detect networks07:44
HwkillerKxTwo: not sure why you think that. Linux's drivers aren't really different between distros07:44
seednodeSo I have to configure by hand07:44
KxTwoseednode, usually I have to fight with wireless adaptes and video when installing on laptops07:44
Hwkillerseednode: you can add in auto-detection07:44
Hwkillernet-auto-wireless07:44
seednodeKxTwo: True, that's why I use Thinkpads :P07:44
HwkillerKxTwo: got broadcom?07:45
KxTwoHwkiller, I obviously do not fully understand then.  I dont fully understand the huge difference between distros to be honest.07:45
* zivester loves his X1 Carbon07:45
minijerk /j lubuntu07:45
seednodezivester: Not personally a fan of the Carbons, but I only used one for a short while. How is it?07:45
minijerkops07:45
HwkillerKxTwo: honestly, the differences between distros is the out-of-the-box experience, the package manager, and the repositories.07:45
dan_any help w/ the lenny sources "not found"?07:45
seednodeAlso, Arch comes with systemd07:46
seednodeI like systemd versus vinitscripts07:46
seednodeQuicker boot, easier to manage.07:46
zivesterseednode: its the only non beats thinkpad in the recent 4 years with a decent resolution... what're you running?07:46
KxTwoseednode, yah I have no idea that is lol.07:46
seednodezivester: I'm on a Thinkpad T60 with a 1400x1050 IPS screen07:46
euaxexit07:46
euaxquit07:46
zivesterI came from a T60p -> X61t -> X1 Carbon.. couldn't be happier07:46
euaxclear07:46
ElectricPrismKxTwo: Operating systems may share certain types of software like Firefox, iTunes, etc... and so linux distros share software. Each distro is like a type of ice-cream, some are chocolate, some vanilla, some catering towards easy of use, some offering OCD control over packages, etc...07:46
COMPUTERi cant boot from cd , some1 help07:46
HwkillerKxTwo: systemd is the init system. It's the first process started after the kernel sets the system up, and it's responsible for loading everything you use.07:46
seednode4GB RAM, 2.16GHz T60, 500GB drive, ATI video card07:47
KxTwoHwkiller, that makes sense.  Most linux distros are customizable so from what I know you can make almost any linux run just like another distro.07:47
Hwkillerall the services (daemons), tty's, login, etc07:47
COMPUTERgateway ne71b07:47
COMPUTERlaptop07:47
seednodeKxTwo, the underlying system is different07:47
zivesterthey had IPS on T60's ?  that was a great machine07:47
KxTwoElectricPrism is great at analogy lol07:47
ElectricPrismKxTwo: each of the distros have commonalities at the core system and are part of the Unix* or Unics family because they share commonalities in filesystem structures in order for software to work across the different distributions07:47
seednodezivester: Yes, the 15" screens higher than 1024x768 were "Flexview" IPS panels07:47
seednodeNon-glossy, too07:47
ElectricPrismKxTwo: In technicality a distro is made up of the Linux Kernel and on top of that is the equivilent of command line userland, I'm not sure if GNU is still in use thus they call it GNU/Linux.07:48
Hwkillerseednode: not by much though, realistically. If you can manage an arch system, you can probably manage a debian system pretty well too. the biggest difference is init and pkg management07:48
seednodeHwkiller: Fair enough. Given that I administer debian and Arch systems, I'd say that's probably true07:48
zivesterI guess I had one of those then :)  but ya, getting 1600x900 on the carbon has been great... basically I wanted an upgrade so bad for 4 years (my X61 ran HOT).. the 14" screen and res (and size) were great07:48
ElectricPrismAll GUIs / Desktop Environments run on top of the X11 windowing system which is a graphical server, and there are different window systems, the most similar analogy to windows would be that Windows Explorer.exe is a window manager (although it performs other functions like file copying, file manager, etc...)07:49
HwkillerI manage ubuntu, fedora, and arch, and there isn't much difference, other than pacman is better than the other pkg managers07:49
zivesterobviously a bit expensive... although my T60p was $2800 when i got it.. so its still half that07:49
seednodeElectricPrism: Not true, you can use Wayland and several others07:49
seednodezivester: Mine was $100 slightly used07:49
seednodeTotally worth it07:49
ElectricPrismseednode: In technicality you are correct, I look forward to trying wayland as soon as KDE, Gnome, etc... have done the footwork07:49
seednodeHwkiller: Pacman is even better with yaourt or the like.07:49
zivestero no doubt :) mine wasn't worth selling for me so I just donated it07:49
seednodeMmm, the AUR07:49
Hwkillerseednode: packer :)07:50
Hwkilleryaourt is an abomination07:50
seednodezivester: I would've taken that O_o07:50
Hwkillerbut that's a discussion for #archlinux07:50
Hwkillernot here07:50
seednodeHwkiller: Yeah, yeah, don't start this again.07:50
KxTwoI think I delved too deep tonight.  I will have to come back another time and bug everyone to educate me07:50
OerHeksGuys, this conversations is way offtopic, lets stick to support please.07:50
seednodeI don't want Indy_Falcon yelling at m07:50
ElectricPrismPacman wasn't as good as apt-get imo, but then their community doesn't have the massive software availabe that Ubuntu / Debian flavors do07:50
=== chiluk is now known as chiluk_away
zivesteryah, there's no really official way to donate back to the community on here.. lol.. I just sent it to some local school07:50
seednodeTime to join #ubuntu-offtopic, as well...07:51
zivesterand put Windows on it :-X07:51
ElectricPrismKxTwo: People in the OSS community are often eager to help, so feel free to ask away, yeah this computer stuff takes a lot of time to learn07:51
nashant2can anyone suggest any alternatives to subsonic, or is it the best?07:51
Hwkillernashant2: I personally find subsonic to be the best :)07:51
hilariouswould it make sense that some random email port would be blocked on a new installation of ubuntu ? meaning that i would be unable to send email through that port07:51
nashant2Hwkiller: how about setting it up behind a reverse proxy?07:51
Hwkillerthere are probably fancier setups, but subsonic is super easy07:51
KxTwoElectricPrism, whats sad is Im not actually a noob.  Im actually finishing up a degree in compsci and was playing with linux back in the 90s when slackware and redhat were big choices.  I just never dived really deep into it.07:52
seednode'Night, folks07:52

seednodedan_: Sorry, booted into Win7 atm07:52
dan_k07:53
ElectricPrismKxTwo: I know the feeling, I had no more room to grow in windows, and now linux is kicking my butt - Arch is a really good learning experience once you have a good understanding of how things work imo07:53
OerHeksdan_ debian/lenny is not supported here, join #debian07:53
dan_i was already there they sent me here.07:53
Ben64if you notice, this is #ubuntu07:53
dan_Ubuntu is based on Debian, but it is not Debian.  Only Debian is supported on #debian.  Use #ubuntu on chat.freenode.net instead.07:54
KxTwoElectricPrism, one thing is, if I dont know how to do soemthing I usually just follow a walkthrough but not really sure if I learn from that.  Alot of time its just copy instructions.  I set up a sever using ubuntu server on an old machine.  Not sure if I could repeat it from memory though lol07:54
OerHeksdan_ this is ubuntu, not debian. debian repos do not work on ubuntu07:54
ElectricPrismKxTwo: I reccomend watching install videos on youtube, they let someone else do the thinking and for you to do the learning, it helped me a lot07:54
ElectricPrismbut im no pro07:54
HwkillerKxTwo: just read man pages and documentation itself07:55
Hwkillertutorials are nice, but I learn by reading the primary docs and trying to understand what each option does07:55
KxTwoI hate a lot of the man pages sometimes they are such greek lol07:55
Hwkillerthen learn the greek :)07:55
ElectricPrismI would welcome a upgrade to the man pages systemwide07:56
ElectricPrismthey're crude, but functional i suppose07:56
KxTwoI know im not alone.  I know there are people who are well versed on the subect and agree that the amn pages sometimes are just awful.07:56
Hwkillersometimes they are07:56
seednodedan_: Read my PM, I think I found your error07:56
HwkillerI can't really remember how I've learned so much. A lot of it is docs, a lot of it is watching talks, and a lot of it is just seeing or thinking of something cool and figuring out if there's a way to do it07:57
ElectricPrismI wish I had the equivilent man pages => ???? as apt-get => aptitude07:57
Hwkillere.g., I learned all about PAM when I thought it'd be sweet to login and have admin privs using a usb key07:57
jagginessKxTwo, yeah.. it depends.. manpages are meant really only for the "familiar" imho.. it's not really a novice task.. but there's at least hints on where one can go (/usr/share/doc too is another place to check out)07:57
ElectricPrismIt seems like they wrap @ around 80 characters too which sucks if your TTY or gnome-terminal can take doubble the space07:57
Hwkillere.g., I learned all about X when configuring xorg.conf and using a standalone window manager07:57
jagginessHwkiller, nice thing, is that xorg.conf isn't needed anymore heheheh07:58
ElectricPrismLearning about X was the most important part of learning about linux imo07:58
KxTwoyou know what bugs me about my school(which is supposed to be a higher end school) is that they dont make comp sci majors take classes on linux and we don't really use it.07:58
Hwkillerjagginess: not usually; sometimes it's still useful (or at least xorg.conf.d/*.conf)07:58
ElectricPrismand how to install Nvidia drivers by command line using Lynx terminal web browser to query google when i was in trouble07:58
KxTwoalright im out thanks guys08:00
ElectricPrismKxTwo: My brother got a comp sci degree, and yeah - linux is big in the server world, but the world is soo divided about it - a bank I interviewed with just couldn't give a budge to linux at all - they felt safe and secure in windows but there's no substitute for a capable linux programmer08:00
seednodeI think I learned what I know about Linux by just jumping in, killing my system, fixing it, and repeating...08:00
ElectricPrismKxTwo: goodnight08:00
zozyhmm...12.04 runs slow with unity even in 2d mode (1gb ram, 2ghz p4)08:00
Hwkillerseednode: +1 too08:00
ElectricPrismAh, the good old days of unity 2d08:01
Hwkillerzozy: do you have a graphics chip? is it integrated, or is it nvidia or amd?08:01
seednodezozy, Those specs are a bit low for Unity08:01
ElectricPrismIt too me ages to figure out how to launch a gui tool without Alt+F2 when Unity3D failed08:01
zozyintegrated intel08:01
zozyseednode: i know08:01
Hwkillereek yeah, p4 is slow; 2ghz p4 is very slow08:02
zozybut this pc is above the minimal requirements stated for default 12.0408:02
zozy:D08:02
ElectricPrismzozy: Is there some kind of repeating problem in the Ctrl + Alt + F12 log ?08:02
Hwkillerminimal requirements just means it *can* run, not that it will do so well :p08:02
zozynope, just cpu almost on 90%08:02
zozyrunning constatntly08:02
ElectricPrismzozy: If speed is your goal maybe a move to MATE would be in order08:03
zozyElectricPrism: i was just mentioniong it08:03
zozyi use icewm btw08:03
ElectricPrismcool08:03
zozyHwkiller: it can be misleading for standard users08:03
zozythats why i tried it out08:03
zozyto check what a normal user would experience08:03
zozyand it would be dissapointing08:03
HwkillerI wonder how kde would be :p08:04
zozyhahaha :D08:04
zozyyeah08:04
zozythat particular computer runned well with xp08:04
Hwkiller"well"08:04
ElectricPrismI feel bad for anyone without good hardware who wants to run Ubuntu because Canonical really cut off the lower 40% of users08:04
seednodeElectricPrism: Well, I can testify that XFCE runs beautifully on a 1.6GHz Atom with 512MB RAM08:05
ElectricPrismbut then again it's nice to have the software innovating, maybe they'll get it right soon08:05
seednodeSo they can always use Xubuntu08:05
ElectricPrism:)08:05
zozyseednode: that mentioned nowhere in the requirements afaik08:05
HwkillerI run unity on my netbook (1.6 atom, 1gb ram, ssd)08:06
ElectricPrismseednode: Sounds like a good potential option for the NAS I need to build soonish08:06
seednodeEh, I didn't feel like it ran well on mine, though.08:06
seednodeElectricPrism, If you're building a NAS, just use debian minimal stable08:06
ElectricPrismzozy: I wonder what speed your ram is, because DDR1 to DDR2 to DDR3 really makes a huge performance difference08:06
Hwkillerif building a NAS, use a distro meant for that. there are plenty.08:06
zozyddr208:06
zozyElectricPrism: my ram isnt used to 100%08:07
ElectricPrismthat should be good enough imo08:07
ElectricPrismjust cpu hmr08:07
zozycpu is the performance bottleneck in this case08:07
seednodeElectricPrism, I haven't noticed many differences between DDR2 and DDR3 for my usage08:07

zozythis is for 12.04 and default de08:08

seednodezozy: When they say minimal, they mean the system will run. Nothing more.08:09
zozyi see08:10
seednodeHell, debian minimal has issues running sub-50MB if you add anything08:10
seednodeAnd that's without GUI and all08:10
zozyanyway, with icewm it runs good08:10
zozybut thats not exactly thrown into the face of an average user08:10
seednodeThe 20MB requirement is without any programs or a DE08:10
zozywouldnt it be helpful to avoid disapointment in ppl meeting first time with ubuntu (that have older machines)08:11

TheBigElectronHi there all. I have gotten RT3070 working on ubntu 12.10 using this http://www.ralinktech.com/en/04_support/support.php?sn=501 driver and this http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-install-rt2870-chipset-based-usb-wireless-adapter.html guide but now it completely hangs Ubuntu 12.10 after about 30sec. Any ideas anyone?08:32
ElectricPrismTheBigElectron: I have an idea, but it's not cake. Boot the live cd, mount the linux filesystem to /tmp/ubuntu    chroot /tmp/ubuntu and disable it using modprobe -r, or blacklist it idk08:35
=== txdv_ is now known as txdv
TheBigElectronCool ideas ElectricPrism, I neglected to mention that the system won't hang if I leave the NIC out (it's USB)08:38
ElectricPrismTheBigElectron, cool, so then all you need to do is disable it i suppose, or reinstall i suppose08:38
ElectricPrismI assume you can blacklist stuff under /etc/modprobe.d/  by creating .conf files similar to arch08:39
TheBigElectronI just released that I should be looking at system logs and going through this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DebuggingSystemCrash to see what is going on.08:39

binbinshhi all, sorry for multiple post: I created an Gentoo ebuild for libreoffice 3.6.4 with Ubuntu's unitymenu patch, I emerge this package with USE "cups dbus gstreamer gtk opengl vba", but I only got libreoffice without menubar, and no global menu bar show in my KDE desktop's menubar widget. The unitymenu.diff is got from the ubuntu package patch. Is there any missing steps for me to get the appmenu support? Is there any design doc for the unity menu08:59

Jordan_Ujdeks: Having two volumes with the same UUID in the same machine is always a bad idea. Universally Unique IDentifiers really need to be Unique. My guess is that somehow your LUKS volume on the internal drive was corrupted while trying to write to it / the external (perhaps for example, something opened /dev/disk/by-uuid/foo and another process wrote to /dev/disk/by-uuid/foo as part of unmounting, thinking it was the same device ( ...10:23
Jordan_U... and the device /dev/disk/by-uuid/foo pointed to changed after adding the external disk).10:23
Jordan_Ujdeks: Be careful that your backup doesn't get corrupted in the same way.10:24
bekkskroq-gar78: There shouldnt be, but thats the "normal" way to add applications to your path. In /usr/bin you normally do not have things from /opt10:24

Also, aren't .bash.. files user specific (this one sits in the base of my personal home directory), surely that's not the correct way to do it?10:28

shwouchk_I'm using ubuntu 12.10 on a computer with an intel centrino 2230 wifi card. For some reason I can only see B/G networks. How can I enable the N functionality?11:34
idrutaare you sure that ur router is supporting N?11:35
hilariousis there a similar command to control-z that would let me 'background' a program without it being connected to that particular terminal window ?11:35
idrutahilarious, screen?11:35
hilariousof course but let's say i'm already started and i forgot to use screen11:35
MalMenhello, it is possible install ubuntu in a android based tablet ?11:36
idrutais the service so critical? write to your bashrc startup command for screen11:36
idrutaso each time you open a terminal, the screen is autostarting11:37
bekkshilarious: Then you have no chance.11:37
hilariousthat is a great idea11:37
hilariousi installed ubuntu on a 4GB usb drive11:38
shwouchk_idruta: yes. It has 2 networks and I'm connected to the N one with the ipad11:38
idrutahilarious, yup...it's really usefull11:38
hilariouson a laptop with no hd11:38
hilariousit works ok, including libre office11:38
shwouchk_hilarious: let me suggest tmux however, so that you can attach to the same session from multiple terminals11:38
hilariousif my other computers all died at the same time11:39
hilariousit would be of use11:39
idrutashwouchk_, what card do you use? check if there is a specific driver for your card11:39
shwouchk_hilarious: also, I would discourage the idea because you would have a bunch or screen sessions running all the time11:39
hilariousnever heard of tmux11:39
shwouchk_idruta: there is and it is installed11:39
hilariousshwouchk_,  - i can do that with screen though11:40
hilariouswhat is different11:40
shwouchk_idruta: and I said what card I use11:40
hilariousyou mean fully 'attach' it to that terminal11:40
shwouchk_hilarious: you can connect to the same screen session from multiple terminals? how?11:40
idrutashwouchk_, oh sry, let me think11:40
bekksshwouchk_: screen -x11:40
hilariousat the same time ?11:41
bekksshwouchk_: Yes.11:41
bekkshilarious: ^^11:41
idrutashwouchk_, can you try it on the other linux machine?11:41

=== lubuntu is now known as Guest27116
shwouchk_hilarious: but not simultaniously11:42
hilariousyeah but i don't even understand what 'simultaneously' means11:42
idrutashwouchk_, oh, ok then, are you sure that the specific drivers is loaded and using by ur card?11:42
_bb_weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee11:42
shwouchk_hilarious bekks apparently simultaneously11:42
shwouchk_nice11:42
shwouchk_idruta: we are talking, aren't we?11:43
hilariousdo the two terminals fight over the cursor ?11:43
bekksshwouchk_: hilarious: Using screen, it is possible to connect from whatever terminal, AND, in addition, it is possible to connect from two or more terminals at the same time.11:44
shwouchk_hilarious: no idea what that means11:44
hilariouswell sorry11:44
hilariousi just have no concept of what it means to have two terminals connected to one screen session at the same time11:44
shwouchk_did you ever use a computer with two monitors showing the same thing?11:45
hilariousyeah11:45
shwouchk_hilarious: same thing11:45
bekkshilarious: It is designed to share a terminal, to show someone on the second terminal what you are doing, and to look at what the other one is doing.11:45
hilariousso that's what i'm saying, i mean, let's say that i'm over here connected to a screen session from a terminal and then someone else has an ssh session to another terminal on this machine, and they are simultaneously connected to the same screen session that my terminal is connected to11:46
hilariousso if i am typing right arrow and they are typing left arrow will the cursor keep going back and forth ?11:46

ixiohi, I am running 12.04 in a VM.. I have added a new HDD (while its powered on) how do I do the equiviliant of a windows "rescan" for new hardware/HDD's and inititate, format and use this disk?14:11
Harlinwhich directory do you want to mount it to blackline ?14:11
Harlinixio, look up fdisk14:11
blacklineHarlin - this is the thing. My "feeling" is that this folder it uses now "feels" kind of temporary.14:11
Harlinso which directory would make you feel good?14:11
blacklineHarlin - I would like it to seem clean, this is a permanent drive14:11
Harlin;-014:11
Harlin;-)14:11
blacklineHarlin - haha14:11
Harlinwell with Linux (unlike Windows), all partitions have a mount point14:12
Harlinand you *do* want it to have its own mount point14:12
Harlinmine on my Linux laptop is something like /mnt/share14:12
Harlinthat makes me feel happy :-)14:12
blacklineHarlin - is /mnt/Storage possible? What would be the logical in compare to my already existing disk?14:12
kapztobiasBora, on verifying the java version on the official website, I don't get any error but the applet is never finished verifying and oracle states that it means there is problem with installation or java is not installed.14:13
Harlinwell, to make it extensible, you can do /mnt/storage1 ;-)14:13
Harlinin case you add external drives and such14:13
Harlinlater14:13
Harlinok so let's do this...14:13
Harlinadd this entry in /etc/fstab14:13
blacklineHarlin Sounds nice.14:13
blacklineWe will go with storage114:13
Harlin/dev/sdb1  /mnt/storage1  ext4 defaults 1 214:13
Harlinsave it.14:14
blacklineor Storage1 if it's case sensitive ;)14:14
Harlindo this though...14:14
Harlinumount /media/marcus/Storage14:14
Harlinafter you add the entry14:14
Harlinlet me know when youve got that far.14:14
ixioHarlin: fdisk doesnt see /dev/sdb yet..14:14
tobiasBorakapz: did you try this test : http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp14:15
Harlinixio, hmmm, maybe your issue is at the hardware level14:15
kapztobiasBora, on Firefox plugincheck web page it states that Icedted-web plugin is unknown plugin14:15
Harlinixio, what kind of drive is it?14:15
blacklineHarlin - Should I add a label?14:15
ixioHarlin: its a virtual HDD14:15
Harlinblackline, i dont usually do that but I don't see why not if it makes you feel even better :-D14:15
Harlinixio, hmm what is a virtual hard drive ? ;-)14:16
Harlinhard usually means "hard"14:16
tobiasBorakapz: and what is the exact error of firefox14:16
kapztobiasBora, I tried the test, and the applet is loaded however it states that an update is available!14:16
Harlinixio, sorry i should ask, what did you do to set it up initially?14:16
tobiasBorakapz: me too I've this message.14:16
nebeneffektis there a possibility in ubuntu to add a cpu-temperatur-gauge to the panel?14:17
kapzthanks a ton tobiasBora, atleat I now know that java plugin is working. Neat!14:17
ixioHarlin: its a virtual machine, therefore it has virtual HDD's.. I have added a new HDD while the server is "powered on" and I need to make ubuntu aware of this fact14:18
ixioI just dont know how14:18
Harlinoh14:18
Harlinixio, should be the same way? is this vmware or virtual box?14:18
ixioKVM14:18
tobiasBorakapz: You're welcome ^^ for exemple, does this applet works ?14:18
ixioin windows you go to disk manager and "rescan" - I need the ubuntu equivilant14:18
Harlinixio, you probably want to go to #kvm or #rhel for the gurus14:19
Harlinixio, in the past, ive not had much help here for kvm (no offense ubunters)14:19
ixioit doesnt really matter what hypervisor I am using.. infact pretend its a physcial box and I have added a hotplug SATA disk14:19
Harlinyeah it does actually ixio14:20
ixiohow would I scan for this new disk14:20
kapztobiasBora, if it passed the java test then I think it does work. You have any website in mind to check?14:20
Harlinixio, you could probably use something like qparted14:20
ixioyeh in the gui I could do it.. I just dunno how to do it from ssh14:20
Harlinbut if fdisk isn't finding it, its possible that it's misconfigured slightly at the hypervisor level unfortunately14:20
tobiasBorakapz: oh sorry I forgot the link : http://www.walter-fendt.de/ph14f/collision_f.htm14:21
kapzI tried dell.com and the site behaves as it should now. Earlier it didn't respond to the filters.14:21
Harlinixio, not sure in ubuntu from the cli either? in redhat there's a curses (cli) interface for it.14:21

ubottuCorruptionEX: A general introduction to the ways software can be installed, removed and managed in Ubuntu can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoftwareManagement - See also !Packages, !Equivalents15:43
k1lCorruptionEX: ubuntu holds alot of software and programs sorted out for your ubuntu version in their repositories. so its a easy and safe install15:44
CorruptionEXOk, so if I were to install UB, I can simply select the E17 installer?15:44
k1lCorruptionEX: you can select the e17-package and it will it install it. yes15:45
CorruptionEXOk15:45
CorruptionEXNow15:45
CorruptionEXWhat is Wubi?15:45
CorruptionEXIs it UB for windows?15:45
bhavesh!wubi | CorruptionEX15:46
ubottuCorruptionEX: Wubi is an Ubuntu installer for Windows users that allows you to install and uninstall Ubuntu like a Windows application, in a simple and safe way. http://wubi-installer.org/support.php and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide for troubleshooting. Please  file bugs at http://launchpad.net/wubi/+filebug. For Ubuntu Oneiric/11.10 http://releases.ubuntu.com/oneiric/wubi.exe15:46
CorruptionEXSince I will need UB, I want to get it, but keep windows15:46
CorruptionEXOk15:46
k1lno, it installs ubuntu inside windows instead in own partitions. so if windows fails, ubuntu fails too. so that is not a good choice15:46
k1lits just ment for testing purposes.15:46
CorruptionEXSo, I install Wubi, and find the e17 package, and it will install it15:46
CorruptionEXcorrect?15:47
Zhaboohi, is there any way to add (un-)compress context (right-click) menu(s) to the file/open dialogs in mint/ubuntu?15:47
k1lCorruptionEX: go with dualboot. install ubuntu into own partitions on your harddisk15:47

CorruptionEXI wont be using UB very much by iteself, I just want E17.15:47
CorruptionEXvm?15:47
k1lCorruptionEX: and with grub2 you can choose on every boot if you want to start ubunut or windows15:48

Zhaboo(I am using both mint and ubuntu on different computers and virtual machines, would also like to know which part of the system this feature actually comes from, if it is provided by ubuntu or need to be separate solutions)15:48
CorruptionEXSorry, Im not very familiar with abreivations15:48
k1lCorruptionEX: why do you want e17 when you wont use it? o_O15:48
CorruptionEXI want tot use E17, but They only have installs for Linix15:49
ThinkT510k1l: i think its the ooh shiney factor15:49
ThinkT510CorruptionEX: a vm is a great testing ground15:49
CorruptionEXNo, I want to use 17, but they only have installs for Linix15:50
ThinkT510CorruptionEX: you can mess anything up, its safe to use a vm15:50
=== yann is now known as Guest42757
k1lCorruptionEX: step away from wubi. you get no advantage to a dualboot install but all the disadvanteges15:50
ThinkT510CorruptionEX: try ubuntu in virtualbox15:50
=== Guest42757 is now known as Yann_L1

ThinkT510!nomodeset | Davidowski15:53
ubottuDavidowski: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter15:53
CorruptionEXSo. I am just making sure I have this all right....    Make a (small) partion just for Ubuntu, and install the full ubuntu there. Boot up UB, and find the e17 package, and install it.15:53
TwistyI'm trying to cut all but the last X number of lines from a log file in place. tail can't be used in place it seems, how else might I accomplish this?15:54
ThinkT510CorruptionEX: sure, but if you are not comfortable with partitioning try it in a vm first15:54
CorruptionEXHow do I do that?15:54
CorruptionEXCan I keep it in a virtual machine?15:54
k1lCorruptionEX: yes, genereally. i wouldnt make it too small and a 3 partition setup would be better, but its ok if you want to test things15:55
ThinkT510CorruptionEX: download virtualbox15:55
ThinkT510CorruptionEX: you can do whatever you like with a vm15:55
CorruptionEXSo after all this is done, how will startup be? Will it boot windows 8, or UB?15:55
ThinkT510CorruptionEX: if you do a vm you need to boot into windows and launch the vm from there15:56
CorruptionEXI want to ratain windows functionality, but use the E17 window manager15:56
CorruptionEXok15:56
ThinkT510CorruptionEX: you won't be able to use enlightenment in windows15:57
CorruptionEXI mean running it through windows, through UB, through a vm15:57
CorruptionEXThi is getting confusing o.O15:57
ThinkT510CorruptionEX: i don't think you understand15:57
CorruptionEXmost likely not....15:58
CorruptionEXI have windows 8, I want E1715:58
CorruptionEXThats all I came here with15:58
ThinkT510CorruptionEX: enlightenment is for linux, to use enlightenment you must use linux15:58
CorruptionEXBut then I though, Ubuntu can run Linix stuff, and they have E17 for Ubuntu15:59
CorruptionEX*thought15:59
=== harry is now known as Guest62269
TwistyUbuntu IS linux15:59
CorruptionEXYes15:59
rdw200169Zhaboo: I've been a bit behind the power curve on new versions of Ubuntu; that said, i'm reasonably certain it still uses Nautilus as the File Manager (Mint probably does too) since it is the standard file manager for Gnome.  As such, what you're looking for is a Nautilus Extention. Examples: http://g-scripts.sourceforge.net/cat-archiving.php15:59
CorruptionEXSo, thats why I was thinking Wubi, So I can have windows AND Linix15:59
CorruptionEXbut someone said to stay away from Wubi, and install UB16:00
CorruptionEXI mean, that was the goal16:00
CorruptionEXBut I dont want UB totally, just for E1716:00
ThinkT510CorruptionEX: why?16:01
nearsthappy new year!16:01

CorruptionEXWhy do you want cool flashy things?16:02
nearstCorruptionEX, try other distro. bodhi as well16:02
ThinkT510CorruptionEX: then live with the fact that you must be running linux to run e1716:02
CorruptionEX*sigh* yea, i was thinking that...........16:02

andrea_how come that 12.10 does not offer VGA drivers support for old video cards? This is insane!!!16:06
NickNamebuthx!16:06
bekksandrea_: Depends on the age of the hardware. Latest kernel (3.8-rc1) does not offer support for i386 hardware. Thats the circle of life.16:07
nearstandrea_, what is your video cards ? lsmod | grep video16:08
bekksnearst: Which will most likely return nothing. "sudo lspci | grep VGA" is the better approach.16:09
nearstbekks, kk.. :D16:10
bekksandrea_: So which graphics hardware do you have?16:10
bhaveshI just created a new user on my Ubuntu server, but when I log in as that user and run sudo apt-get update, I get sudo: must be setuid to root16:11

ThinkT510bhavesh: did you put your new user in the sudo group?16:11

bhaveshThinkT510: How do I do that?16:11

RB2Are there any workarounds for this?16:15
k1lbhavesh: make sure sudo got the stickybit16:15

arabican I get unity as fast as gnome-fallback in my older system??18:25
ApteryxI'm using 12.10 but I don't think it matters. Maybe the fact that the media _is_ USB means it monopolizes some USB feature that cannot be used for something else like mounting an Android phone?18:25

qrwhen I plug my tablet into USB it's detected as a camera and shows up in my file explorer as gphoto2://[usb:002,008]/ ... many of the folders I know to be present do not show up in this view ... how do I make ubuntu treat it like an ordinary flash drive?18:33
shinobi420<qr> that is often an option on the device in question itself. I know my own camera has two modes which ared selected from the camera18:34
qrshinobi420: I have 2 options on the device, treat as camera or use mtp, with mtp it is not detected at all18:34

Seven_Six_TwoI have a multi-homed server connected to both of the household's LANs. It serves webpages through my internet, and serves media to my roommate's boxee box. I'd like to export my music partition to the server with nfs, and then export from the server to the boxee box. Can I "double export" with nfs?18:44
Dragon64anyone know the best way to tweak notifcations in 12.10?18:44
eon_6874... probably ... though seems a bit over the top18:44
ApteryxDo you guys think its possible to install Ubuntu on the same USB key that is used as the liveUSB media?18:44
ApteryxI could do a blank partition on it and tell the installer to use that18:45
qrhmm I get a file not found error with or without root18:45
eon_6874Apteryx -- you'll probably accidentally something (well, the installer)18:45
qrcould it be because the file is >4gigs?18:45

qrI have no NTFS here18:46
ApteryxI'll be back18:46
Apteryxmaybe I found some problem ;)18:46
Seven_Six_Twoeon_6874, because my desktop and the boxee are on different LANs18:47
eon_6874OK, that's ... um ... wha ...18:48
eon_6874?18:48
eon_6874same house/flat/whatever, no?18:48
Seven_Six_Twoeon_6874, my household has 2 internet connections. The server has 2 network cards, one for each LAN.18:49
DavidowskiHow can I set NOMODESET on unebootin ?18:50
Seven_Six_Twoeon_6874, It serves webpages through one internet connection, and media to a boxee box on the other. My music is on the lan through which webpages are served, so therefore its on a different subnet.18:50
eon_6874OK ... so don't limit the NFS export to one interface, or is your "music partition" partition part of your machine (laptop?)18:50
Seven_Six_Twoeon_6874, yeah, my music is on my desktop, not my server18:50
enriquehola18:50
cg_Anyone good with bash?18:51
eon_6874ah, that complicates things :)18:51
eon_6874makes sense now18:51
Eduard_Munteanucg_: just ask a question, don't ask if anyone's good at something18:51
cg_Would it just be best if I post it to a thread I'm trying to bounce some ideas off of how to get this script to work.18:52
eon_6874can try it ... though it might be easier throwing the music onto the server itself and having that share to both subnets18:52
Seven_Six_Twoeon_6874, it's because I moved into a household with their own internet, and I need my own for webserver. They then gave me a nice server to use as long as they can also use it, so I put in an extra nic and connected one nic to each router.18:52
cg_quit18:53
Seven_Six_Twoeon_6874, you are so right. The only problem is that my music collection is very large. VERY.18:53
eon_6874should have seen that coming18:53
shinobi420<qr> you are running ubuntu on that TF300T?18:54
shinobi420are you in a chroot?18:54
eon_6874and since it's a boxee box (never played with one), I assume something slightly more elegant (such as SSH hop thru the server) isn't possible?18:54
Seven_Six_Twoeon_6874, no, it only recognizes nfs and smb18:55
eon_6874can't win ...18:55
eon_6874gimme 10 minutes to fire up a VM and break things :)18:55
Seven_Six_Twoeon_6874, no doubt. I only care because it's newyearseve...Otherwise it doesn't matter at all18:55
Eduard_MunteanuSeven_Six_Two: how about a ssh tunnel or bridging the two LANs?18:56
DavidowskiHow can I set NOMODESET on unebootin ?18:56
grkbloodmy update manager is reporting that a lot of my repos are failing to connect but the ones they are listing are  http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/maverick-backports*. I'm not running maverick, I'm running 12.04. Why is it even checking for maverick repos?18:56
jribgrkblood: because you have them in your repository sources18:57
eon_6874Tried that idea already - boxee doesn't SSH tunnel ... bridge might work18:57
Seven_Six_TwoEduard_Munteanu, there's no terminal access with boxee box, but bridging would probably be the best solution. I'm looking in to making my server route18:57
Eduard_Munteanueon_6874: no, but I assume the server and desktop can18:57
shinobi420does anyone know how to adjust permissions for wireless connections in GDM?18:58
shinobi420I installed gnome on my ubuntu instance and now I am stuck. IT keeps asking me to authenticate to the wifi network but I know my key is correct.18:59
shinobi420I am pretty sure it's a permissions problem18:59
shinobi420I dont even know the syntax to do a proper search for the problem18:59
nelson8874someone recomend a guide for ffmpeg?18:59
eon_6874yeah server/desktop should be able to do the fun stuff ... but if the boxxee box doesn't play, it's kind of a moot point (then again ... I'm nowhere near an "expert" with ssh)19:00

eon_6874assuming you wanted a symbolic link right in home19:29
[twisti]to run the android sdk tools, they are already installed, but dont run, and google told me its because i dont have ia32-libs installed19:29
=== Chex is now known as Guest99202

jrib[twisti]: ia32-libs is a metapackage, you can just install the packages actually required.  You can install 32-bit versions of packages now by appending package names with ":i386"19:30
[twisti]but that file is there and accessible and all19:30
blacklineeon_6874, I don't know if that was what I meant. To be more specific, if I look in Nautilus I have a pane to the left with Computer, Home, Desktop etc. I would like the disk to show up with a fancy disk icon in that pane.19:30
jrib[twisti]: how are you intsalling the android sdk tools?19:30
rhaguSolarisBoy should I format the drive again or can I trust this setup?19:30
[twisti]tar -xzvf android-sdk.tgz19:30
eon_6874blackline, oh that makes sense.  I don't use Nautilus for moving around19:31
[twisti]i dont believe they come any other way19:31
japrohrmf, so it seems installing ia32-libs broke opengl?19:31
jrib[twisti]: inside, is there documentation detailing its requirements?  Or have you found official documentation detailing the requirements?  Also, can you pastebin the error in full?19:31
SolarisBoyrhagu: you can trust it - there is nothing wrong with it - though i rather partitions on my drives you could simply partition it which would wipe the ext4 (and any data) and rewrite the filesystem if you want19:32
blacklineeon_6874, i don't know if this is nautilus specific.19:32
blacklineeon_6874, but i guess so19:32
Jisawesome2what does 'define the linux kernel source inclkude file path LINUX_SRC modify to meet your need" mean?19:32
rhaguSolarisBoy I would have to do that over the terminal, thank you for the answer I will keep it the way it is19:32
blacklineeon_6874, if i connect another external drive it shows up as the other drive did before.19:32
SolarisBoyrhagu: sure19:32
[twisti]jrib: i have found no requirements, im going off of this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1943746/android-eclipse-plugin-cant-find-valid-paths19:34
eon_6874blackline, yeah it's a Nautilus thing for how it's displaying drives.  Hot-plugged drives show up in a different place.  you *could* try modifying your fstab to mount the drive into /media19:34
eon_6874assuming that it's in /mnt right now19:34
[twisti]i can paste the error, but its just a java stacktrace that i doubt would help you much19:34
[twisti]i have confirmed that i have the same situation: i have the file, its executable, i have permissions, and yet i get the error that it doesnt exist when i try to start it19:34
blacklineeon_6874, ok if that's the space for usb-drives and such maybe that's not the "proper" place to have it.19:35
=== root is now known as Guest30635
Jisawesome2Could I simply run the driver CD in wine?19:35
[twisti]jrib: as you can tell from the comments, ia32-libs did help the person (and i found other advice where it also helped other people with this issue)19:35
jrib[twisti]: here's the official note: https://developer.android.com/sdk/installing/index.html .  Anyway, you can just install the packages you want (read: need) from the list you get with « apt-cache depends ia32-libs-multiarch ».  Ideally, you would find documentation telling you what actual packages you need 32bit versions of19:35
blacklineeon_6874, but as for now it's not showing anywhere convenient except for in mnt/storage1 which is not very reachable.19:36
[twisti]as you can see, that advice just tells me to install ia32-libs as well19:36
edong23Ok... First, i have googled and it appears everyone is aware of this, but im still confused as to why this is a problem.  Question:  Why can you not take the system disk from one machine and put it in another and boot when using disk-by-uuid?  Ultimately, you can, but it is an outrageous amount of work (if the old system is dead and you are using lvm and such as you need to use ubuntu recovery)  so... like i said, isnt disk-by-uuid supposed19:36
edong23to fix that/19:36
eon_6874blackline, yeah understand where you're coming from19:36
jrib[twisti]: yes, I acknowledged this.19:36
edong23?19:36
eon_6874symlink from your home directory would "probably" be the easiest19:36
blacklineeon_6874, in the same pane the filesystem is listed. i suppose i could get it listed there somehow?19:36
[twisti]i have no idea how i would tell what packages i would need, i figured the X depency of ia32-libs was a bug of sorts that i could just sidestep somehow19:37
eon_6874yeah, hang on a sec ...19:37
[twisti]i know i somehow managed to get this working a year ago, but that server went gonzo, and while i backed up a lot, i didnt back up the solution to this19:37
jrib[twisti]: ia32-libs just installs the 32bit versions of a bunch of common libraries, including things like qt apparently.19:37
[twisti]that sucks19:38
[twisti]is there any way to tell what libs that executable is trying to access ?19:38
SolarisBoyldd19:38
dakotawulfyhi19:38
jrib[twisti]: if you pastebin the error in full then maybe I can make a guess/suggestion.  Otherwise, just start installing from the output of « apt-cache depends ia32-libs-multiarch » and checking that the packages to be installed don't bother you19:38
user94202in KDE, How do i get rid of the translucent options next to desktop icons (when I hover the pointer over an icon)  ??19:38
eon_6874blackline, Quick fix seems that if you mount the drive into /media or /home it'll show up in Nautilus (assuming that the fix for "How do I make Nautilus *NOT* show mounted drives can be reversed to get what you want)19:39
[twisti]SolarisBoy: "not a dynamic executable"19:39

blacklineeon_6874, i'll give it a try. thanks!19:39
[twisti]jrib: http://pastebin.com/xjvLzd2q19:39
[twisti]or from the command line: http://pastebin.com/9sRLdV4319:40
jrib[twisti]: there are some packages listed here, though I haven't read closely: https://source.android.com/source/initializing.html19:40
[twisti]oh hm19:40
[twisti]could i somehow see which of the packages from ia32 i have already installed as 32bit ?19:41
eon_6874blackline, yep, just tested it, and it showed up in nautilus19:41
jrib[twisti]: dpkg -l '*:i386' | grep '^ii'19:42
[twisti]No packages found matching *:i386.19:42
eon_6874just used "mount -t nfs4 <myserver>:/mnt/share /media/test" and it popped up in Nautilus.  so changing your fstab to point at /media/storage instead of /mnt/storage should leave you golden19:43

eon_6874InfiniteByte, hard drive might be dying19:45
[twisti]POW!19:46
SolarisBoy[twisti]: so your trying to run the aapt binary and the issue is your getting that message no such file or dir?19:46
[twisti]that worked, thank you jrib19:46

[twisti]yes SolarisBoy19:46
InfiniteByteeon_6874, the drive is maximum 12 months old...19:46
[twisti]jrib: may i ask what you googled to find that ? i spent a long time before whining here19:46
jrib[twisti]: (I used duckduckgo.com) android sdk apt-get install i38619:47
eon_6874InfiniteByte, sometimes things fail ... try a SMART check or use the vendor's tools (if any) to do a full check on it.  good news is that if it is going, it's still under warranty19:47
edong23InfiniteByte: age doesnt really matter for a failing drive... but it could also be that you arent cleanly shutting down.   are you certain you are cleanly shutting down every time?19:47
