Lady_AleenaHow plug-and-play is Ubuntu?00:22
daftykinsLady_Aleena: what would you plan to plug in?00:23
dr_willistotally plug and play for my hardware00:23
dr_willisbut i researched what to buy ;)00:24
daftykinsLady_Aleena: the main thing is to check compatibility before buying. and don't trust salesmen in shops either00:24
illovaethat's true00:24
topper4125Lady_Aleena: never had a problem with mice, keyboards, HP Printers, Acer monitors, Joysticks, my 3 GPS units (from Rand Mcnally, Garmin, and Cobra)...00:24
daftykins"oh look it says Linux 2.6 on the box, that'll guarantee it!"00:24
Lady_AleenaI don't remember the manufacturer of my hard and floppy drives or the specifics about them. My monitor is a Dell. I have a lot of USB ports.00:25
daftykinsyou can pretty much guarantee internal component compatibility00:25
topper4125hard drives *should* be 100% compatible, Floppies.. not so sure... monitor... yes... the only USB problem I ever had was with a M$ USB hub.00:26
illovaeLady_Aleena: sounds good, what is you graphic card?00:26
illovaetopper4125: floppies? no problem00:26
illovaes/you/your/00:26
dr_willissome of those 'green' hard driveds were quirky . but i think thats been fixed now00:26
Lady_Aleenaillovae, video and audio are all on the ATI All-in-Wonder 9000 Low Profile, I think.00:26
dr_willisall in wonder? how old is that?00:27
MoL0ToVwhat pc is? what cpu and chipset?00:27
MoL0ToVa pentium4?00:27
Lady_Aleenadr_willis, it is a really old computer (2003).00:27
daftykinsi would highly doubt all the functionality of an all-in-wonder card will work under Linux00:27
dr_willisall in wonders were a Major pain even in windows years ago00:27
daftykinse.g. TV input, video capture, etc.00:28
MoL0ToVyes.. but today is all digital.. so a all in wonder is not needed...00:28

illovaeI recall that TV tuner functions work on ubuntu...00:28
dr_willisif you can find a analog signal to tune. ;)00:29
Lady_AleenaI may have a Creative card in the computer too, but I haven't found it on my devices list yet.00:29

MoL0ToVhere in italy in 2003 we use analog tv tuner, but from some years DVB is used also for tv.. so...00:29

Lady_AleenaACK! tuning00:29
MoL0ToVLady_Aleena, you have some ram memory? at least 1 gig is needed today to work..00:30
Lady_AleenaI have 1 GB of memory, maybe more which Windows isn't seeing.00:30
topper4125hmmm... wonder if the mythbuntu people have had better luck/worked harder with All in Wonder if it has tv tuner on it00:31
dr_willistopper4125:  last i used an AIW,,.. they wer almost useless ;)00:31
dr_willisi dont even recall the svideo out working00:32
dr_willisbest answer.. put ubuntu on it and see what explodes. ;)00:32
dr_willisor lubuntu may work better00:33
ugbserver00:38
topper4125looks like the mythbuntu people try to avoid it, and if *they* avoid a tv tuner... there's a darn good reason for it.00:40

* rootpt off01:40
IronicusHere's the issue, there should be hours and hours of footage listed in the gui of the dvr, but there is none, so my theory is that the partition has become corrupted or the file system is perhaps corrupted?01:41
IronicusI apologize for the vaguness of my request01:41
dr_willisIronicus:  can you even see files on it?01:42
Ironicusno, not on partition 1, partition 2 has some log files, but partition1 remains mysterious01:42

dr_willisunless you can get better tech support from them01:43
topper4125was the partition encrypted through Ubuntu?01:44
Jisawesome_serverplatypus, would that mean the pci slot?01:44

topper4125oh... okay... start with googling  "DVR [model] encrytpion"01:46

ubottuUbuntu 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 !classic02:09

ubottuzentyal is a web-based GUI interface for administering a server. It is designed to work with Ubuntu/Debian style configuration management. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Zentyal (Project formally known as eBox - including in Lucid/10.04).03:24

dr_willis!webmin03:24
ubottuwebmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.03:24
p0rksomsip, i read over that article a few minutes ago. ill revisit it, thank you.03:24

Ben64you wanted command line stuff05:40

Ben64I used to use that in a script to control my volume from my multimedia keys that weren't supported under 10.0405:41

aridholEvening, I have a strange issue with mounting an NFS share via fstab. I am running 11.10, 3.0 kernel (just updated) and the NFS share mounts if I do it manually or via mount -a. It does not mount on bootup and no mount or nfs error is shown in dmesg (i did dmesg | grep nfs and dmesg | grep mount). my fstab line is host:/share /mountpoint nfs _netdev,auto,rw,soft,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192 Any suggestions welcome06:43
Noskcajkatymoneyperry, then buy more, its cheap06:43
kylescottmcgillwachpwn: if you can access http sites on your server that at least means you have access to the box, and its on, sounds like your ssh daemon isnt running, can you ssh -v username@domain.com06:43

theosecthiender after logging in, the pointer just hangs at the position it was at before logging in. no buttons work07:11
MyLittleBroncoTheos, if it worked before even after log in, you need to undo whatever you did. Usually messing with conf files or installing unsupported software will cause hardware to stop working.07:11
theosMyLittleBronco i just pressed the on/off button :/07:11

MyLittleBroncokaty, it should be fine.07:18
ecthiendertheos, so you are saying after logging in you are able to work? (make the mouse work?)07:19
theosecthiender yes only after giving the options in modprobe conf. not by default. and its limited to movement of pointer. no scrolling07:20
ecthiendertheos, oh! so you are able to log in, only your mouse doesn't work?07:20
theosecthiender heh yes. thats the problem. the touchpad isnt working07:21
ecthiendertheos, sorry then. i thought your system froze. undo the changes in modprobe.conf07:21

MyLittleBroncoor maybe, android-dev, or android-develop08:12
=== dankest is now known as dankest|away
MyLittleBroncoIt means don't mess with grub unless you want to reinstall your system.08:13
Ben64!nomodeset | nearst08:13
ubottunearst: 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 parameter08:13
nearstBen64, ty. i forgot to call ubottu.08:14
MyLittleBronco It's rough when you forget which packages you installed with dpkg.08:17
EaglemanIn which order does apache2 loads the HTTPS section ( i have to know which one is the default one ), i want to know this becuase of NameBasedSSLVHostsWithSNI08:18
MyLittleBroncoMy status bar says, "Downloading 45647 of 45753 in All Mail." Ugh.08:20

KAtyPerRyhow to install google talk in ubuntu08:22
nearstu may use pidgin as alternative08:22
somsipEagleman: you would probably be better asking in #apache given you have been asking in here for a while08:23

mah454in ubuntu kubuntu 12.10 , I have this dependency "kdelibs5" , but can not find this package in repository !08:25
Eaglemansomsip it differs per distribution08:26
somsipmah454: kdelibs-bin perhaps?08:26
mah454somsip:  I want to install this package : sflphone-client-kde08:27

mah454https://launchpad.net/~savoirfairelinux/+archive/ppa08:27
MyLittleBroncoTry sudo apt-get install kdelibs*08:28
somsipmah454: you really want to install a package that failed to build...good luck.08:28
MyLittleBroncoWhat were you trying to install?08:29
somsipEagleman: fair enough. I've just seen you asking for a while now so thought I'd mention it.08:29
BowblesI would like to take an existing Ubuntu 12.04 install, which is on a single drive, and then create a raid 6 array from some other drives in the system, and migrate everything over, so that I can boot from the raid 6 array and completely remove the existing single drive. Can anyone point me in the right direction?08:29
ikoniaBowbles: the concept is pretty easy, there are a few little niggles08:30
somsipmah454: ah - i see it was just natty that failed.08:31
MyLittleBroncoRAID Tools, but I don't know the package name. You can dd the image of your drive.08:31
Bowblesikonia: yeah the concept seems super easy08:31
Bowblesbut then I keep getting stuck on stuff08:32
Bowblesand I feel like I must be missing some basic procedure08:32
ikoniaBowbles: 1.) make raid array 2.) copy data across (taking care with permissions) 3.) fix some file issues 4.) re-apply grub08:32
ikoniaBowbles: that's the high level process,08:32
ikoniaBowbles: the details are 1.) consider putting /boot on a seperate non-raid partition to make life easy 2.) change your /etc/fstab and grub config files 3.) apply grub to the MBR of the of the physical disk - not the raid array08:33
MyLittleBroncoWell, it's 3:30 a.m. here. Time for bed. Zzzzz08:33
Bowblesikonia: do you think it may be worthwhile to try and move my actual ubuntu OS to a flash drive?08:34
Bowblesand then run the array just for storage?08:34
MyLittleBroncoHave fun. Don't blow up anything. Night.08:34
ikoniaBowbles: what do you mean by flash drive, like a usb pen drive ?08:34
Bowblesikonia: eyes08:34
nearstblow your drive.hehe08:34
Bowblesyes even08:34
ikoniaBowbles: personally - no, USB disks perform badly08:34
ikoniaBowbles: so it will depend on your needs/expectation08:35
nearstsince ive 2 partition, how about mbr?08:36
ikonianearst: sorry what ?08:37
nearstsda1 is xp, and sdb1 is ubuntu.08:38
dr_willisthats 2 hard drives.08:39
ikonianearst: but what is your actual question ?08:39
nearstikonia, i just have blinking screen at boot after grub.08:41
ikonianearst: sorry, I've miseed context again, what's happened, you've done an install and grub now doesn't boot your install08:42
Bowblesikonia: should I be raiding drives or partitions?08:42
aridholdrives08:42
ikoniaBowbles: up to you, personally, I like to make 1 partition that encompasses the drive, set it's partition type to raid08:42
aridholEvening, I have a strange issue with mounting an NFS share via fstab. I am running 11.10, 3.0 kernel (just updated) and the NFS share mounts if I do it manually or via mount -a. It does not mount on bootup and no mount or nfs error is shown in dmesg (i did dmesg | grep nfs and dmesg | grep mount). my fstab line is host:/share /mountpoint nfs _netdev,auto,rw,soft,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192 Any suggestions welcome08:42
dr_willisraiding partitions wouldent make much sence08:42
Bowbleshmmm, then /boot may need to go to USB at least temporarily08:43
ikoniadr_willis: it can make a lot of sense, depending on your partition layout08:43
nearstya. i done install for 2nd time.08:43
ikoniaBowbles: you can make a small 200mb partition at the start of the disk and mirror it on the other disks for resillience08:43
Bowbleshow would I mirror it?08:44
ikoniaraid 108:44
ikonia(for example)08:44
BowblesBut doesn't that defy the whole point of not putting boot on a raid volume?08:44
dr_willisaridhol:  dirty work arouund. put mount -a in  /etc/rc.local after a delay08:45
ikoniaBowbles: raid 1 is different than raid 5,608:45
Bowblesikonia: ok I understan08:45
aridholRaid is at the basic, a hardware redundancy play is it not? Why partititon?08:46
aridholdr_willis, I will do that if it comes to it. I just don't understand why my machine won't load it at boot or at least tell me why it won't :(08:47
dr_willisaridhol:  my guess would be networking is not up when it tries and is failing08:48
Bowblesaridhol: because grub has trouble dealing with raid 5 and 6 from what i gather08:48
dr_willisaridhol:  i thought there was a mount option to make nfs wait untill it tried.. but that might have been a samba option08:48
aridholbut shouldn't dmesg or /log/messages etc.. tell me that?08:48
Nag_hi08:49
aridholI have _netdev in my fstab which I gather is for NFS3 or ealier to "wait" but it does nothing08:49
aridholBowbles, ah, I had no idea :/08:49
dr_willisaridhol:  i would double check that option. it  might have some limitations.08:50
aridholI guess it makes sense to ask if the mounting of shares is "proper" to be done outside of fstab and in a seperate runlevel / startup sequence08:50
aridholam I living in the past?08:50
dr_willisis _netdev and auto redundant could auto be overrideing netdev?08:51
EaglemanI am a bit confused with the owner system with apache, should the files in the http folder owned by www-data or the user that maintains those files?08:52
aridholnetdev without the underscore is not a valid option as far as I understand08:52
somsipEagleman: I tend to leave the user as secure as possible, and chgrp -R www-data *; chmod g+s -R *; Depends whether production or local dev server though08:53
Eaglemansomsip so the file belongs to the group where the user is in, even then if a user creates a file the file owner will still be user:user08:57
dr_willishttp://www.rodneybeede.com/How_to_fix_NFS__v4__not_mounting__etc_fstab_entries_on_boot.html08:57
dr_willishas mention of _netdev not working as intended08:58
somsipEagleman: no - if you create a file it will be owned by eagleman:www-data08:58
Bowblesso ikonia I would partition for 200mb at the start of each drive, and then mark all of those partitions as bootable?08:58
cute_bettongi have a samsung series 7 with a hybrid ATI/intel card, and for some reason sudo reconfigure xserver-xorg no longer seems to work in ubuntu 12.04 32bit, is there a replacement for this?08:58
aridholhttp://www.rodneybeede.com/How_to_fix_NFS__v4__not_mounting__08:59
aridholetc_fstab_entries_on_boot.html08:59
Eaglemanhmm if i create a file now it belongs to 1001:1001  so no www-data involved08:59
aridholwhoops08:59
aridholsorry08:59
FloodBot1aridhol: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.08:59
somsipEagleman: I believe your username is too long to display so it's using your uid instead. Looks like the parent directory is not g+s (if that is what you want)08:59
TheCrownedFoxI would like to take a screenshot of a computer (running ubuntu 12.04) that has its monitors inactive via ssh, so that I can see what X would be displaying from a distance. Is this possible to do?09:00
dr_willisTheCrownedFox:  ive seen  it done. but dont recall the exact command. saw it on a android server tool.. lets me see if i can find it.09:02
TheCrownedFoxThank you kindly09:02
aridholThanks dr_willis. I have a hard time accepting that a user hack is needed to have a system wait for an essential share from a network. Are we to rely on this for running ubuntu in a production environment? rediculous.09:02
cute_bettongso no one has any idea about my question?09:02
cute_bettongwhat has replaced reconfigure xserver-xorg, becasue the command dosen't seem to work09:03
arabihow to enable java for firefox in ubuntu 12.1009:04

Eaglemanwhich umask do you suggest somsip ?09:06
makarahi. I'm formatting new external 1TB disk. But with ext4 it already uses up 64GB before I've even added anything?!? Is there a better filesystem? (besides NTFS)09:07

aridholThanks for the attempt, I do appreciate it. Just dissapointed that a "common" usage is such a pain09:08
nearstarabi, which java ? sun or open?09:08
dr_willisTheCrownedFox:    export DISPLAY=:0 ; import -window root foo.png09:09
cute_bettongcan anyone tell me why dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg no longer works? and what can i use that would replace it09:09
arabiI have installed openjdk-7-jdk already09:09
TheCrownedFoxthanks, let me give that a try real quick09:09
nearstdpkg-reconfigure -phigh?09:09
arabinearst09:09
dr_williscute_bettong: hasent worked yor ages as far as i know. x auto configures mainly. no xirg.cinf needed in most cases09:10
aridholmakara, 64 is perfectly normal. for example a "320GB" drive uses about 22GB09:10
nearstarabi, try install icedtea6-plugin09:10
aridholdrive sizes are not what you'd expect :)09:10
dr_williscute_bettong:  a deeper issue will be how badly supported those dual gpu   setups are in linux09:10
arabinearst, thanks09:10
cute_bettongdr_willis, well i can tell you that the hybrid video card works perfectly in ubuntu, i was just trying to do the old xorg customizations09:11
makaraaridhol, oh ok09:11
dr_williscute_bettong:   if you have an xorg.conf then try just rename/deleteing it09:12
cute_bettongdr_willis, i do that and my graphics stop working09:12
dr_willisi dont know what customizations you need09:12
cute_bettongdr_willis, im trying to turn on my ATI cards power management feature so it stops throttleing my core temps09:12
EaglemanWhat would be a good umask for a www folder?09:15
Eaglemanuser:www-data09:16
nearstEagleman, depend on user. i would love to use 777 on my localhost09:16
somsipEagleman: it depends if you need to write. If not, the standard is to give you a 644 file, which is fine.09:17
Eaglemanchmod 777 everything09:17
somsipEagleman: Starts a very bad habit...09:17
nearsthihi09:17
Eaglemannearst started it xD09:17
kylescottmcgillthe same as your webserver daemon Eagleman09:18
somsipEagleman: is this local or production>?09:18
Eaglemanlets say its production09:18
Eaglemanits a homeserver running 2 websites with FQDN's09:18
somsipEagleman: are you writing to any files (cache, etc) with www-data user?09:18
kylescottmcgillif you use apache, and apache uses www-data then use www-data, if you are the only one of the system then you could start apache with your user and group and set those permissions, but in any case i wouldnt use the /var/www/ folder, and set up a virtual host09:19
nearstagree09:19
Eaglemani think i am not writing to anything outside the www folder09:19
Eaglemansome files do need write issues but thats only 3% of them09:19
Eaglemanshould be done by hand09:19
TheCrownedFoxthat worked pretty well, thank you09:20
somsipEagleman: so you need write access to certain folders. Make them chgrp www-data and chmod g+s them. Leave eveyrthing else as it is. That should do it09:20
somsipEagleman: but that is very simply put09:20
somsipEagleman: big difference between getting it working and making it secure09:21
Eagleman644 wouldnt the last 4 be useless since www-data is in first 4 ?09:21
ErdMutterEagleman, what I do is have my /var/www set to chmod 775, and have it chown root:www-data ... then I make a symbolic link to it in my home dirrectory ... then i make the symbolic link owned by my user. Not sure if it really helps any, just found it to work the best... i might be wrong.09:21
somsipEagleman: if you are not writing to the file, www-data only needs RO09:21
nearstsecurity and speed is big topic in IT09:21
malefikuHello guys09:21
nabblethi, i am looking for a rdp comaptible desktop viewer that can connect to multible computers simultanously. i tried remmina but i can only open one connection :(09:22
malefikuI have another problem now with my website09:22
nearsthi malefiku09:22
nearstnabblet, why view multiple computer at the same time? :D09:22
malefikuI have on my tablet 2 internet connections: 3G from Orange mobile phone provider and WIFI, from a local internet provider: when I try to enter my mobile version of www.marian32.com it points me to Google, but on wifi works; on wifi doesn't work the desktop version of the website09:24
nabbletnearst: because i have to monitor them for some time and have to compare things on them09:24
malefikuWhat is the problem?09:24
nabbletnearst: settings, installed software and all that... having them open at the same time will speed things up09:24
Eagleman-rw-r--r--  1 user userr  629 May 27  2012 test.php  is what i currently have, just trying to make it more "secure"09:24
Eaglemandirectory:  drwxr-xr-x  3 user user    4096 May 27  2012 temp09:25
somsipEagleman: PHP will work, unless it needs to write to temp. Like log files and such09:26
kylescottmcgillis it suppose to have userr as the group?09:26
Eaglemansomsip then the creator from the program will say which files/folder needs specific permissions09:26
somsipEagleman: not sure what you mean there09:26
nearstnabblet, owh.what os involve?09:28
nabbletnearst: win xp and win 709:28
MonkeyDustmalefiku  better try ##networking or #ubuntu-server09:28
nabbletnearst: googling shows that remmina has trouble with multiple rdp connections. there are bugs filed09:28
Eaglemansomsip, like this for example:  Within your genealogy folder, find the files adminlog.txt, config.php, genlog.txt, importconfig.php, logconfig.php, mapconfig.php, pedconfig.php, subroot.php, templateconfig.php and whatsnew.txt and give them all Read/Write permissions (666, or rw-rw-rw-) using your file manager or FTP program.09:29
cute_bettongis there a command to make ubuntu tell me how much vram i have? i know the card is listed at 1gb gddr4 but i don't know if ubuntu is using that ram is there a way to tell?09:30
nearstnabblet, ya. if your xp and win7 in your network. why not use synergy.remote mouse and keyboard09:30
somsipEagleman: yes - if you are the 'creator of the program' you will need to chmod those files.09:30
nabbletnearst: do i have to install synergy on the win machines?09:32
nearstya. client and server method09:32
nabbletnearst: i prefere to use board software of win xp. i know there are many ways to do this job (teamview, vnc, ...) but i thought it should work via rdp too...after all remmian is very charming as long as it is only one computer. i am trying to use multiple instaces of remmina now, maybe that helps09:34
nearstnabblet, ya.09:35
nearstwhy everytime i boot into default grub my screen gonna blinking and hang?09:36
nabbletnearst: i am playing around with rdesktop too09:37
cute_bettongalright, my ATI card is reporting the wrong size in memory, is there a way to fix this?09:37
cute_bettongthe ati card has 1gb gddr509:38

ikoniacute_bettong: how are you checking this ?09:40
cute_bettongikonia, im using an app from the repo's called hardinfo09:40
cute_bettongikonia, its telling me that i only have 256mb of ram on my card, and the card physically has 1GB of gddr509:41
ikoniacute_bettong: ok, I'd suggest some other checks09:41
cute_bettongikonia, what do you have in mind?09:41

ikoniacute_bettong: something odd here, it's also showing your laptop processor as a "xeon"09:57
blaminearst: those optimus thingies are evil09:57
ikoniawhen that spec says it should be an I7 267509:57
cute_bettongikonia, i assure you it's not.09:57
blamiikonia: that's correct09:58
nearstblami, aha. hihi09:58
ikoniacute_bettong: just seems odd that it's reporting a xeon and a 6600 card, when it should be an I7 and a 675009:58
blamiikonia: my i5 thinkpad reports xeon PCI-E hub as well09:58
cute_bettongikonia, is my ubuntu broken? v.v or is it fixable09:58
ikoniacute_bettong: I don't think it's ubuntu, just hold on09:58
blamiikonia: theres nothing like Core i7 in hwdb09:58
ikoniablami: perfect, thank you09:59
cute_bettongikonia, according to the box the video card in my laptop is a amd hd6750M gddr5 1GB hybrid09:59
nearstuname -a then09:59
ikoniacute_bettong: ok so it may just be a pci identifier problem09:59
blamiikonia: it's not problem afaik10:00
ikoniablami: what's not ?10:00
blamiikonia: architecture in fact is Xeon in case of newer Core i-something CPUs10:00
cute_bettongikonia, blami it's an i7 i assure you10:01
ikoniablami: not according to my I7 thinkpad, but it's just wording10:01
blamiikonia: newer Xeons and Core i cpus are almost same,10:01
cute_bettongikonia, blami it's an intel i7-2675QM10:01
ikoniacute_bettong: try "sudo update-pciids"10:01
blamiikonia: better said newer Xeons are based on i710:01
ikoniablami: you're missing the point of what I was raising10:01
nearstlook at /proc/cpuinfo?10:01
ikoniablami: I'm not arguing better / worse hardware, just what his sysstem had identified, eg: xeon process bridge, amd 660010:02
ikoniawhich are all differerent than what his spec is10:02
cute_bettongikonia, that is correct, and there's been no change to lspci after running that command though it did update10:02
blamiikonia: only thing I am saying is what lspci reports is correct10:03
cute_bettongikonia, the odd thing is that hardinfo is reporting the correct cpu10:03
ikoniacute_bettong: ok, so it's possible (although I'm not massivly up to date on the dual video card stuff) is that it's possible it's using the intel gpu but still listing it as the amd10:03
ikoniacute_bettong: does the intel cpu scale down ram to 256 ?10:03

ikoniaI'm assuming the onboard gpu is smaller than the amd10:04
cute_bettongikonia, i think the intel card has 512mb of ram but according to catalyst it's running the amd card not the intel10:04

cute_bettongnearst, i love ATI XD10:05
Jordan_Ucute_bettong: I don't know much about it, but I think some hybrid graphics implementations always have the integrated graphics card driving the display, and offload rendering to the secondary GPU. So depening on how these tools are looking at the situation, it might appear that the intel card is the card being used. (I wish I could also tell you how to get the value you want).10:06
nearstchipset is really different now. sometime i also confuse10:06
blamiJordan_U: I think AMD is stuck in phase they need hw mux10:07
blamiJordan_U: which is good for linux users because having laptop like Lenovo T420 which has everything except LVDS hardwired to second card is pain10:07

Jordan_Ukylescottmcgill: As I understand it, beachbrake is trying to make a bootable USB drive containing an Ubuntu 12.10 Live system, and is using Unetbootin from Ubuntu 9.04 to create it. If that's true, then my comment applies.10:23

beachbrakeJordan_U: I also downloaded an iso in the 'downloads' folder.10:25
blamiMordFustang: using headphones jack on your soundcard10:25
Jordan_Ubeachbrake: It's still worth trying Unetbootin, but if the resulting USB drive gives you an error from syslinux and fails to boot then you'll need to make the USB from a different OS or use dd.10:25
MordFustangblami: I have connected hdmi to TV and 3.5mm jack for audio but sound its not working10:26
cute_bettongblami, so any ideas?10:26
beachbrakeJordan_U: you mean, take the .iso and paste it on another OS (like windows) and recreate it?10:26
dr_willisMordFustang:  normally hdmi to a tv carries audio anyway.10:26
MordFustangdr_willis: I know10:27
dr_willisMordFustang:  the tv may have options to seelct what audio channel to use. or it maaay default to the analog when a specific hdmi port is used. or the vga port10:27
MordFustangtv thinks that he is receiving audio with hdmi10:28
Jordan_Ubeachbrake: Yes. (Though just for future reference, the term is usually "copy" as in "copying the file"  while "pasting the file" does make some logical sense, it's not said commonly and confused me for a moment)10:28

oskar-hi all, on my ubuntu 12.04 server boot is not completed until i press at least one keyboard key. it seems as if apparmor is the cause. what could i do to fix it?12:36
dr_willisit dosent give any error messages or other info?12:37
dr_willishow are you determining its apparmour?12:37
Ricardo-UbuntustHello, have a happy new year for all people from Seville!!!!12:41
oskar-dr_willis, network and ssh is already running then, so i could log in and see a process with command "/etc/init.d/apparmor start". also, when i pressed a key, the next output was from the apparmor script. but what i see now is, that it is not so very well reproducible. i will investigate...12:44

gacEagleman: there should be a way for you to mark your "self-signed" certificate as trusted, you'll need to do it on every browser you use though. you'd be better off getting something like a free Startcom certificate, as their CA is included in major browsers so there's a high chance of it "just working" whichever computer/browser you happen to be using15:25

Eaglemanthanks gac  do they also support wildcard domains?15:27

jhutchins_wkbieb: Can you resolve hostnames with the host command?15:51
DJonesblim: What did you pay for?15:51
blimpayed what I thought it was worth"*15:51
biebjhutchins_wk: I have never used host command.. let me look up how to test15:52
iew_paulbieb: I've had resolv.conf be overwritten on me in 12.0415:52
jhutchins_wkbieb: host google.com15:52
xanguablim: you did not pay, you donated15:52
jhutchins_wkiew_paul: dhcp will do that, but I believe he said he had static.15:52
jhutchins_wkxangua: you can also pay depending on where you get it.15:52
biebjhutchins_wk: "connection timed out; no server could be reached"15:53
blimand id happily  donate more but id rather be of some help myself15:53
jhutchins_wkblim: Did you get a disk from ubuntu or somewhere?15:53
biebiew_paul: static IP15:53
xanguajhutchins_wk: blim you need to know the diference betweenm pay and donate15:53
jhutchins_wkbieb: That sounds more like a networking/gateway issue, although you say you can connect by ip.  Can you ping an external IP?15:54
blimyou guys need to take a chill pill15:54
DJonesblim: Who did you pay? You can make donations to Canonical, but you may have paid somebody to install the system, unless whoever you've paid have added apps, you'll probably get the same thing if you download it15:54
blimdonate** yes15:54
Touhou11blim: Be aware that if you're donating, Canonical is a for-profit private company. You'd be better donating to Debian15:54
toxboibieb: I've a feeling that maybe the DNS server provided by your hosting provider is not working anymore. Give google's public DNS a try and check if that helps.15:54
DJonesblim: In that case, what you download should be the same regardless of what you donate15:54
biebjhutchins_wk: I can connect to server via ip using putty.. can not ping outside ip..15:55
blimI donated from ubuntu side just before I downloaded the iso15:55
jhutchins_wkWhether he "paid" or "donated" is irrelevant to his question.15:55
biebtoxboi: 8.8.8.8?15:55
Touhou11I'd avoid Google's DNS for privacy reasons15:55
toxboibieb: yep15:55
ikoniagood lord15:55
jhutchins_wkbieb: Sounds like it doesn't know what it's gateway should be.  That should be in the interfaces file.15:55
ikoniaprivacy reasons....they are dns servers15:55
blimI dont wont help with the driver problem anymore just chill man15:55
jhutchins_wkbieb: You can use the route command to see what it is now.15:55
blimIve worked out the problem like i was told to do XD15:56
=== emile_ is now known as dawkirst
biebjhutchins_wk: route gives correct gateway15:56
Touhou11ikonia: Yes, and you have no idea the software which is providing the DNS service15:56
jhutchins_wkbieb: That's very strange.  Is there a firewall on the gateway?15:57
ikoniaTouhou11: so....it's a dns server, it maps domain names to IP's15:57
jhutchins_wkbieb: Can you ping the gateway?15:57
blimand anyway I just wanted confirmation, that was all. Its not hard to give a person a push in the right direction15:57
Touhou11ikonia: I strongly suspect Google is recording every DNS request and correlating it with all the other data they hold on each person15:57
biebI will check with the network guy.. I thought this address was cleared15:57
Touhou11ikonia: It's your choice anyway, just alerting people to the issues15:57
biebjhutchins_wk: yeah I can ping gateway15:57
toxboiTouhou11: I agree. In this case, we just want to rule out the hosting provider's DNS server issue.15:58
ikoniaTouhou11: your making up an issue...and warning people of something you have no proof of, please don't spread fud15:58
jhutchins_wkbieb: Yeah, definitely check with network guy.15:58
Touhou11ikonia: You're right, there's no proof in this instance, but looking at Google's long history of privacy violations there are reasons to be concerned15:58
ikoniaTouhou11: please don't spread FUD15:58
biebtoxboi: should I put google dns in interfaces file? or resolve?15:58
DJonesTouhou11: Googles privacy issues aren't really a problem for the ubuntu support channel15:59
Touhou11ikonia: I suggest you read up on the issue15:59
ikoniaTouhou11: please don't spread FUD15:59
toxboibieb: I did first try in resolv.conf and restart networking to check if that helps.15:59

socrates_johnsonhello, i just purchased an asus windows 8 laptop and am trying to wipe it to dual-boot windows 7 and ubuntu. i installed windows 7 but when i boot from the ubuntu live cd to install linux the entire harddrive appears as "unallocated"17:36
socrates_johnsoni'm new to all the uefi/secure boot stuff so i'm sure i'm messing something up there17:36
kylescottmcgillsocrates_johnson: parition it first inside Windows, then come back and use that parition17:36
ActionParsnipRes22: an announcement of some kind17:36
res22ah17:36
res22I can feel the excitement17:37
kylescottmcgillis it the new 13.04 or something?17:37
kylescottmcgilllol sweet im glad i was up at this time17:37
Basil1xummm is something supposed to happen when I start this applet.  Terminal just sits there17:38
kylescottmcgillit should spawn a Sound icon in your bar17:38
socrates_johnsonkylescottmcgill: that's what i've done in the past but none of the partitions appear in linux at all. the entire 750 gb is unallocated (even though there are two partitions from the windows installation)17:39
Basil1xOK... it didn't.17:39
xibalbaI have a list of IPs in file 'A.txt', I want to see if these IPs are in 'B.txt'. If they're not in B.txt, I would like output so I know what to add from A to B, any thoughts?17:39
kylescottmcgillsocrates_johnson: Windows 8 / 7 havnt changed parition types have they?17:39
xibalbaplz type my name if you have some though so i can see it17:39
kylescottmcgilluefi should effect your Parition Map17:40
makerbreakrxibalba man diff17:40
kylescottmcgillshouldn**17:40
xibalbaman diff....yea17:40
kylescottmcgillBasil1x: what Window Mnager are you using?17:40
Basil1xlightdm17:40
xibalbathe lines aren't exactly arranged the same, one is a config file, one is just a file of ip addresses17:40
pero_pActionParsnip, tnx, i tried disabling "Preload MKV files in the same directory" in Input/Codecs->Demuxers->Matroska, and now problem seems to be solved. ;)17:41
pero_pActionParsnip, in VLC of course17:41
socrates_johnsonkylescottmcgill: does it matter if i do the installations with secure boot disabled? the only setup options that seem relevant are "secure boot" (enabled by default) and "launch csm" (enabled by default)17:41
xibalbai ran diff A.txt B.txt, wasn't too helpful17:41
kylescottmcgillBasil1x: lightdm is the login screen, what are you using after this?17:41
ActionParsnipXibalba: join the 2 files, then use sort and uniq to mske the final list.17:42
Basil1xkylescottmcgill: lightdm, Unity. also have KDE, kdm and gdm installed17:42
xibalbaActionParsnip, even if they're totally different in structure?17:42
xibalbaone is a config file, one is a simple list of ip addresses17:42
kylescottmcgillsocrates_johnson: i dont think so.. but you could try disabling them, sorry im not sure17:42
ActionParsnipXibalba: then you'll need to grep for IP addresses in the file17:43
xibalbai tried that with grep -vn -f A.txt B.txt17:43
ActionParsnipPero_p: cool17:43
xibalbadidn't seem to work17:43
socrates_johnsonkylescottmcgill: no worries, i've tried it both ways but it doesn't seem to make a difference. although you can also boot off of the dvd/cd using uefi mode (or not)17:43
xibalbai think i need to grep B.txt to Awk then do a comparison17:45
ActionParsnipXibalba: i'd ask in #bash17:45
xibalbai can regex my grep search for an IP right ?17:45
beethoven8201you tried diff, xibalba ?17:45
xibalbayeah, didn't get what i wa slooking for17:45
beethoven8201you should sort before diff fyi17:45
xibalbastructure of the two files is different17:46
beethoven8201you can grab ips first then diff that17:46
xibalbathats what i'm trying to do with grep/awk right now17:46
beethoven8201sed might work too17:47
beethoven8201search for things that match regex, replace them with a new line before and after, grep out just those lines, diff after sorting17:47

mega1sudo fdisk -l does not show the drive18:58
charley__i have done this but when i open my computer the welcome screen still shows 12.04 lte why?18:58
Bighonghey18:58
kylescottmcgillmega1: oh right, yeah the dmesg (or sudo dmesg) should tell you when you connected the device, if nothing is in there, check the drive again, once you have figured out what sdX it is you can mount it to /media or something18:58
lduroshi, is there anyway I can start the printer settings gui from the command line?18:59
lduroswhat would be the command to run?18:59
genii-aroundcharley__: dist-upgrade option in apt-get does not move you between different releases of Ubuntu. For that you require do-release-upgrade18:59

PeterJCLawie: $ rvm list19:06
PeterJCLawThe program 'rvm' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:19:06
PeterJCLawsudo apt-get install ruby-rvm19:06
PeterJCLaw(I'm guessing that this isn't bash)19:06
charley__this isnt supose to format my disk right?19:07
gvocharley__: No but it is possible to make it unbootable.19:07
kylescottmcgillPeterJCLaw: goto rvm.io everything is there19:07
charley__ohh19:07
michagogoIs the ruby-rvm actually what you want?19:07
genii-aroundGeorgeJ: The pacgaes have post installation scripts, these are what add users if needed. the post installation files are found in the directory /var/lib/dpkg/info/      So what you can do if a script added user "george" for instance is: grep adduser /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.postinst | grep george19:07
PeterJCLawkylescottmcgill: well yes, but that's not the bit I'm interested in19:07
michagogoAccording to the site, you should install with `\curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby'19:08
kylescottmcgillthen what is the problem?19:08
GeorgeJgenii-around: Awesome, thank you.19:08
charley__thank you gvo19:08
michagogoOhhhh19:08
PeterJCLawI'd like to know what it is that is telling me that19:08
gvocharley__: If the system starts to update and you have a power failure, for instance, it is possible that the system will be left in a state that's unbootable.19:08

BetaSoultouchscreen: have you check restricted drivers?19:09
kylescottmcgillPeterJCLaw: right i see what you mean, it could be an older package, or something, command-not-found is built into Ubuntu as far as im aware, but generally its bash or whatever shell that would normally say command-not-found19:10
bekksalesan: Do you have a blueray reader/writer in your PC?19:10
alesanbekks, which one?19:10
bekksalesan: Thats what I am asking.19:10
GeorgeJgenii-around: The adduser lines seems to span multiple lines. Since the user I'm looking for is called bind, I grepped for "bind" to not avail.19:10
alesanbekks, the reason I want to rip is that I do not have a BD driver on the PC I want to watch the movie19:11

GeorgeJI also want to purge the data the dependencies(which no longer exists) have.19:13
michagogoGeorgeJ: you mean `apt-get purge'?19:13
kylescottmcgillautoremove will only remove it if its no longer needed19:13
bekksalesan: So you dont have a BD disc drive then?19:13
PeterJCLawdkessel: looks like it, thanks19:13
GeorgeJI'm actually looking for something on the lines of apt-get autopurge.19:13
michagogoIIRC apt-get has a switch or option or something to purge anywhere that it'd remove or something19:14

PiciSazpaimon: Everything that is installable in Ubuntu Desktop can be installed on Ubuntu server. So yes, you can get wireless working.20:41
WizekMonkeyDust: in what way can It go wrong? What should I be expecting?20:42
SazpaimonPici, my question is why does it need to be *installed* from the get-go20:42
Sazpaimoni mean if you need wireless, apt-get install wireless-tools, by all means. But a server install does not need such a thing out of the box20:42
PiciSazpaimon: Probably because it was small enough to include by default and not cause a problem.20:44

Sazpaimonozy_work, I just think that something like wireless-tools could be installed from something like tasksel, instead of by default, but that's just me20:51

dlynes_laptopblno, #ubuntu-discuss21:38
jhutchins_wkjoako: That would be reasonable.  Your audio system is essentialy owned by the local GUI.  If you launch a GUI app remotely the display is forwarded, but the GUI already has control of the local sound.21:38
blnodlynes_laptop: thanks21:38
joakoAnd I just ran MPG123 from SSH and again there is no sound output21:38
zirpuanyone had ethernet and wifi disappear after the latest update to network-manager-gnome ?21:38

joakoPreviously I had openSUSE and I could run VLC as a service21:39
blnoDJones: great, thanks21:39
jhutchins_wkjoako: On the other hand, text based apps are not using X forwarding, and they can often access the mixer on the local system (as above with mpg123).21:39
dlynes_laptopDJones, thanks for the update....been sending everyone to #ubuntu-discuss :)21:39
joakoI never said I was using x forwarding. And I said MPG123 also does not output audio21:39
joakoWhat if I just didn´t want a GUI? I Could not use audio?21:40
usr13joako: That is normal.  The audio will originate [only] from the local PC.21:40
jhutchins_wkjoako: Supposedly one of the reasons for pulseaudio is that you can run a -local- app on your machine and forward the sound to the output of a remote machine.  Again, I don't have details.21:40
joakousr13: So what is needed to enable the sound?21:40
jhutchins_wkjoako: Investigate why mpg123 isn't working.  Does the user have permission to access /dev/dsp?21:40

usr13joako: The should should be heard on the pc that the app runs on.  Now, from a ssh session to another PC,  you may not even be able to run a gui app like vlc without first setting the display to the local machine with command:  export DISPLAY=:0.0  After that you should be able to run a gui app on the remote PC.21:42
joakousr13: VLC doesn´t need a GUI and that doesn´t explan why CLI-only mpg123 doesn´t work.21:43
joakoI used to have openSUSE and I could run VLC as a service with the HTTP interface just fine and audio would come out of the machine´s sound card. Now in ubutnu I can not get sound as a service, or from SSH basically it has to be done MANUALLY from the local GUI.21:44
usr13joako: mpg123 should work as well, yes, and the audio should be heard on the PC that the app resides on.  Maybe you just need to turn up the volume.  Try alsamixer.21:44
Jordan_Ujoako: Pulseaudio automatically routs sound to the same place that $DISPLAY is going. You can also manually direct it to a remote machine.21:45

zirpuhere's a fun bug:  install arping and it uninstalls network-manager.  that was fun.21:47

randomuser33Oh okay. I assumed I would have to do someting. Thanks! bekks21:47

Jordan_Ujoako: Then you're probably not going to be able to get this working automatically via ssh, because you need some network routable sound system to get the sound from the PC running mpeg123 to the machine you're sitting in front of, and pulseaudio is pretty much it for that. Though pulseaudio can be installed and used in Windows, I doubt that it integrates nicely with ssh clients to automatically route sound.21:51

usr13joako: Have you tested the sound system?  If not, try:   play /usr/share/sounds/alsa/*21:54
Jordan_Ujoako: Ahh, then I think you're running into a security problem. By default only the user at the active tty can output sound (so for example if you switch users, the old user's apps won't be able to play sound until you switch back to it).21:54

usr13easy_err: I can't "ping anything"  either, but I CAN ping a valid domain name and I can ping IP addresses that exist on my LAN.22:06
usr13brendan_: Not that I know of....22:07
Jordan_Ujoako: If that also fails then pulseaudio probably isn't what's arbitrating access to the sound card for this security feature (or at least isn't the only thing arbitrating access).22:07

ggherdovHi all. I have little knowledge of the lifecycle of an Ubuntu version. What is, now, the lowest version of Ubuntu that is, somehow, supported? I mean, if I am writing a software, and would like it to be packaged for Ubuntu, what is the lowest Ubuntu release that I need to make sure my thing is compatible with?22:09
brendan_it may work as is, but was curious22:09
jrtappersIs my name showing as registered, I don't know if I did it right or not22:09
usr13jrtappers: see for yourself.22:09
Muphridggherdov: 10.04 LTS which will end its life in march or april. If you would like to package something it is better to contribute to debian instead, then it will flow to ubuntu22:10
usr13jrtappers: Yes.  You are James.  Right?22:10
joakoJordan_U: No pasuspender doesn´t work either22:10
brendan_Jordan_U: im trying to make management easier, but not create new problem(s)22:10
jrtappersYes, thanks22:10
brendan_working with Puppet22:10
jrtappersI am just getting used to this22:10
ggherdovMuphrid: really? I had the impression that packages comes first at Ubuntu, and later at Debian. I mean, Ubuntu has newer version of packages.22:11
shilohis ubuntu going get rid of infinity anytime soon or is this it now?22:11
MonkeyDustshiloh  you mean Unity?22:11
usr13jrtappers: YOu can do:  /whois jrtappers22:11
Muphridggherdov: Ubuntu imports from debian Sid (regular releases) and testing (lts). Debian comes first22:11
shilohMonkeyDust: yes sir, meant unity22:11

rstrtOk, I just saw the news about the Ubuntu phone. Does that imply that I can install Ubuntu over top of existing Android devices?22:14

easy_errwell, i gotta boot into linux to check...be right back...22:15

jrtappersrstrt, but if you want it on an android device at the moment there is a way with vnc I think...22:16
rstrtjrtappers; ah. Thanks. I don't want to run VNC into Ubuntu, It would be cool if I could load it onto my Gnex to test, we'll see where it goes.22:16
jrtappersThink that is one of the devices that will get a Beta Version in the next few weeks, il check22:17
usr13easy_err: Check the gateway IP first, see that it is, in fact, your gateway router's IP.  Then see what nameserver you are using, cat /etc/resolv.conf  It may be the router's IP and if so, you need to have your router's caching nameserver turned on and the router should have a valid nameserver from outside that it uses.  If not, or if you want to just sidestep all that, just 8.8.8.8  as your nameserver.22:17
shilohjrtappers: understood, i might research that a little bit and try.22:17

jrtappersshiloh, what Window Manager wold you like22:18
joakoHow do I disable the /etc/init.d/pulseaudio service?22:18

usr13easy_err: Ok, you can go.22:19

AbhishSailorMoon, WHy are you trying to blacklist that module?23:12
gotwigandural, where are you from?23:12
ScuniziWhat's in the repos that I can use to edit .bdm video files taken with a HD camcorder?23:12
cnuulhuI'm updating directly from a very old version of Ubuntu to to 12.04 (LTS). How should I go about backing up and restoring files for all users?23:12
cnuulhuAnd can I back up anything more than files?23:12
SailorMoonBecause its conflicting and its making my wifi not work, Abhish23:12
jrtappersRobbilie, two factor authentication so even if the password for my accounts is sniffed im still secure23:12
AbhishWhat is your wifi car?23:12
SailorMoon"brcmsmac" or "wl" is making my wireless not work23:12
AbhishSailorMoon,23:13
SailorMoonBCM431123:13
anduralgotwig currently in California23:13
AbhishHmm.23:13
SailorMooni have it working now but only because i used modprobe -r23:13
SailorMooni want it to work on boot23:13
gotwigandural, alright ;) I am from German23:13
gotwigy23:13
Robbiliejrtappers, hear alot bout that will enable that now because my password is too insecure23:13
AbhishSailorMoon, run sudo lsmod | grep b4323:13
anduralgotwig : originally dutch :)23:13
AbhishSailorMoon, The reason I'm asking these questions is that I'm rather intimate with issues pertaining to broadcom chipsets.23:14
SailorMooni have it rebooting, just to see.23:15
jrtappersRobbilie, Public wifi is insecure, so twofactor is needed, passwords c an be sniffed23:15
=== d is now known as Guest86380
=== redrocket[Den] is now known as redrocket
anduralgotwig I manage to get to a different graphical login, which lets me type username/password and then does nothing23:15
SailorMoonYeah, it isnt working, Abhish23:15
Freederwhats the best way to figure out what is causing a high system load? top doesn't show the culprit, its all at 0%23:15
vinceakavinceim installing ubuntu 12.10 desktop on my computer alongside my windows xp (this is a friends computer im chatting on). its asking me to partition drive space. is that just asking how much of my hard drive do i want to use for windows and how much for ubuntu? or what? also is that something i can change in the future?23:16
jrtappersFreeder, sudo top23:16
jrtappersvinceakavince, why not wubi?23:16
FreederI'm already running it as root23:16
DominikST95vinceakavince, partitions can be changed later, but it may be that some data gets lost23:17
jrtappersvinceakavince, OH yh, XP = no wubi, sorry23:17
DominikST95(if you do it wrong)23:17
gotwigandural, can you get to the ubuntu lightdm?23:17
Robbiliejrtappers, enabled :)23:17
toordog jrtappers what about 7 then :)23:17
Robbiliejrtappers, now going to add a new pw additionally23:17
anduralgotwig no.  doing a 'service start lightdm' gets me to this odd graphical login23:18
SailorMoonAbhish: simply typing "sudo modprobe b43" makes my wireless card work. what should i do to make it load at boot?23:18
vinceakavincehmm, how might i do it wrong? lol now youve got me worried. is there anything i should watch out for, or what would cause loss of data?23:19
gotwigandural, so the normal lightdm...?23:19
gotwigandural, the phrase before you are loged in23:19
toordogvinceakavince: just that resizing a partition is never 100% safe23:20
VlanXWeThePeople:  http://pastebin.com/KSYJ8Ncw23:20
jrtapperstoordog, Please can you remind me, my chat history is a bit broken23:20
anduralgotwig, I don't know, I haven't seen this one before.  The usual lightdm login looks different than what I get now.23:20
toordogjrtappers: I keep losing you :P23:20
jrtappersOh, security tip, Use XARP23:20
Abhishb43... how is the performance? I usually have to blacklist that driver.23:20
anduralgotwig I get this one http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_pzVKVDOIYcQ/TNuIGKArGbI/AAAAAAAAFF4/eXHZ5RCL8Lc/s1600/LightDM+Industrial.png23:20
vinceakavincetoordog: oh ok well thanks for the heads up23:20
AbhishAll you should need to do is blacklist brcmsmac and wl.23:20
DominikST95if you for example try to make a full partition smaller, some data will be erased23:20
AbhishSailorMoon, ^23:20
anduralgotwig but logging in does nothing, it just puts me back at that screen23:21
Kuhrectcan any one help me install skype on ubuntu??23:21
gotwigandural, are you serious^^?23:21
WeThePeoplevlanx, what dist?23:21
jrtapperstoordog, I am back in the conversation flow23:21
gotwigandural, I think I know about your problem23:22
VlanXWeThePeople: 12.1023:22
AbhishSailorMoon, udev handles driver loading. Blacklist the offending drivers and it should act fine.23:22
AbhishKuhrect, is it available in the app store?23:22
toordogjrtappers: i was just saying earlier that hacker shown so well that internet is not secure that now USA want to pass law to control the internet ;)23:22
anduralgotwig that would be nice :)23:22
gotwigandural, you would have to remove some hiden .Xauthority files I guesss23:22
gotwigthey are somehow corrupted23:22
gotwigor invalid23:22
AbhishIf not, download it and install it. The package manager will make sure it works.23:22
anduralgotwig interesting.  where are those normally located?  and, any idea how that happened?23:22
gotwigin your home directory23:22
jrtappersIts insecure, but only humans make mistakes23:23
anduralgotwig hmm okay.23:23
gotwigandural, before that create a new user on terminal23:23
az_hello, i am trying to install a downloaded driver for radeon 2400. I can't seem to figure out to do so. Any help?23:23
gotwigandural, to test, if it has to do with that... I dont have much time, 00:23 AM here =)23:23
jrtapperstoordog, SSL can be beaten, passwords can be sniffed so there are still security mountains to climb, but a MITM is always a problem23:23
gotwigandural, do you know how?23:24
anduralgotwig yes23:24
anduralgotwig I used to be able to fix this until they switched away from the old xorg system23:24
plut0ubuntu is booting up in the recovery menu every reboot, filesystem state = read-only, any idea how to fix this?23:24
SailorMoonAbhish: how do i blacklist them? D:23:24

plut0gotwig: it is writable...23:26
gotwigimpiza, spammer -..-23:26
VlanXWeThePeople: do you think it would be possible to enable graphic acceleration?23:26
ESphynxalso now ctrl-alt-f1/f2 is completely messed up while X is running... the console only comes back after I ctrl-C my 'startx'23:26
MuphridSailorMoon: add it to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf23:26
impizao_O23:26
gotwigandural, with your normal user?23:26
jrtappersWhat languages can Ubuntu software center apps be made in?23:26
gotwigandural, I am happy as well :-)23:26
schultzahow do i add a folder to the the nautilus sidebar?23:27

plut0gotwig: yes23:27
Appianohi guys i run ubuntu 12 i installed foxit reader but it comes out in chinese, could somebody help me? i need to use it for my thesis tomorrow morning, please! how do i change the language of the software, i looked it up online and found nothing, thanks23:27
gotwigplut0, does it start in normal mode when you select it?23:28
plut0gotwig: yeah it boots fine, just comes up with the recovery console every reboot23:28
schultzaah, nevermind23:28
az_ok, so there are no drivers technically, weird...23:28
jrtappersschultza,  do you mean bookmarks23:28
gotwigplut0, try to get grub to generate all your entries new23:28
plut0gotwig: update-grub, did that already23:28
deltabAppiano: specifically foxit, or would another pdf reader do?23:29
Jordan_UAppiano: There are many other PDF readers available. Do you need to use Foxit?23:29
gotwigplut0, have you written the changes on the disk?23:29
plut0gotwig: yes23:29
deltabAppiano: you probably have evince installed already23:29
gotwigplut0, first grub-mkconfig than grub-update, than grub-setup diskname or grub-install diskname23:30
Jordan_Uplut0: What is the output of "cat /proc/cmdline" when it boots this way?23:30
kysstfafmis he a GOG gamer?23:30
gotwigI always forget if its grub-setup or install... try both23:30
AppianoI found out that the search function works a lot quicker with Foxit. do you suggest any alternative?23:30
DominikST95how can i update my ATI HD 4870 driver? No tutorial on the internet worked -.-23:30
gotwigplut0, grub-install diskname that is23:30
gotwigplut0, have you run grub-mkconfig before?23:31
=== qos|away is now known as qos
provenzanohey guys did some1 used DSL on usb?23:31
k1l_DominikST95: why you want to update?23:31
plut0gotwig: tried those commands, no luck23:32
Jordan_Ugotwig: grub-update isn't a command, update-grub is a wrapper around grub-mkconfig, grub-setup is a utility that shouldn't be run manually, grub-install is OK to run manually but doesn't need to be to update the grub.cfg. Most importantly though you should never suggest that people run commands without knowing what they actually do, especially for something as important as the bootloader.23:32
k1l_provenzano: dsl like in damnsmalllinux?23:32
provenzanoyes23:32
gotwigJordan_U, oh well23:32
