Daz646Happy new year everyone, would anyone mind telling me how i can make an existing disk imagine of my current kubuntu configuration etc? I am using kubuntu 12.10 64bit. Many Thanks.00:43
Doomhammerwhat's the technique to install 64-bit flash plugin? apt-get install flashplugin-installer seems to not do it00:49
TorchDaz646: _configuration_ or _installation_?00:52
Daz646Torch: is it possible to do both?00:52
TorchDaz646: i guess, yes.00:53
TorchDaz646: question is what you really want to achieve00:53
Daz646Torch: In case i have to format my harddrive or something, it would be just pretty convienient to just put a disk in and stall it from like a checkpoint type of thing. Sorry a little new to linux.00:54
TorchDaz646: and it re-installs all packages and sets up the configuration the way it has been?00:55
Daz646Torch: Yes, ive have spent a long time messing around configuring the interface as a learning curve and i have it exactly how i like it.00:55
TorchDaz646: first thing: separate home partition00:56
Daz646Torch: ok00:56
TorchDaz646: so if you lose your root partition, you don't lose your configuration for the users00:56
TorchDaz646: you _still_ have to install the packages, of course00:56
Daz646Torch: Yes that's no problem :)00:56
Torchgoogle turns up this: http://fai-project.org/00:56
Torchcan't say if it works and how well00:57
Daz646No problem, appreciated. Messing things up is part of me learning so either way its all good :). Thanks again!00:58

SamizdatguyI think I uninstalled kde, but can't mount my HD from shell to fix the issue.04:40
SamizdatguyI get an error about specifying file system.04:40
Obsidian1723That doesn;t make sense.04:43
SamizdatguyYeah, I know.04:43
Obsidian1723the K Desktop Environment is a DE and doesn't have anything to do really with the file system or the OS itself.04:43
Obsidian1723What do you see if you do df -h04:44
Obsidian1723Does it show the paritions, Ext4 and / and so forth?04:44
SamizdatguyI'm seeing partitions, but my HD shows up as /dev/mapper/kubunut-root04:45
SamizdatguyI'm on a live CD now.04:45
Obsidian1723Have you tried to unmount / and then run fsck to fix it?04:46
SamizdatguyYeah. It wouldn't work.04:46
SamizdatguyI think I can get to my /home/ actually.04:47
SamizdatguyI'll back it up and reformat, I guess.04:47
Obsidian1723fsck wont work?04:47
SamizdatguyHow do I run it?04:48
Obsidian1723Here's part of a script I wrote which may help.... run this segment first:04:48
Obsidian1723mount -n -o remount,ro / && df -hT && cd $HOME/$user && touch write-test.txt && ls $HOME/$user | grep write-test.txt && echo I have performed a test to see if the main partition and hard drive is indeed in read-only mode. To verify that it is in read-only mode look at the listing of your home directory and IF YOU DO NOT SEE "write-test.txt" in your home directory and you see an error stating "cannot create file" then you are ok to proceed04:48
Obsidian1723with the next step and check the drive. IF you DO see the file "write-test.txt" - DO NOT PROCEED WITH THE NEXT STEP. YOUR DRIVE IS NOT IN READ-ONLY MODE. MAKE IT READ ONLY FIRST!! This message will clear in 15 seconds and you will be given the next command to run to actually check the drive.04:49
FloodBotK1Obsidian1723: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.04:49
SamizdatguyI can't, actually.04:49
Obsidian1723then do this: (and you can leave off sudo if you are already root # ) sudo /sbin/fsck -y -f -v /04:49
SamizdatguyI'm on my tablet here.04:49
Obsidian1723I thought you were on the system via a live cd?04:50
SamizdatguyDidn;t seem to do anything.04:50
SamizdatguyThanks man, but I think a clean install is gonna be the way to go.04:51
Obsidian1723then you did it wrong. No offense, but that works.04:51
SamizdatguyI can get my home of the thing now.04:51
Obsidian1723Well, then just nuke and pave, reinstall, replace home04:51
SamizdatguyIt just read fsck from util-linux 2.20.104:52
SamizdatguyCan I just shove my /home/ back in place after a reinstall?04:52
Obsidian1723I wouldn't04:53
SamizdatguyMove things one by one, huh?04:53
Obsidian1723There are files you can copy over with yuour settings and of course your personal files.04:53
Obsidian1723Well, one thing you can do is unmount /home and then reinstall the OS, then remount /home , but that assumes /home is on not just another parition, but another drive. If you're getting inode errors or something where you need to nuke the drive and everything is all on one drive, that's not going to work to just unmount and remount /home04:54
Obsidian1723/ tmp /etc /bin and /var and /home are all paritions that can exist on one drive.... what I was talking about is that same setupo, but with /home partition being on another logical drive.04:55
Obsidian1723You don't have it setup like that do you?04:55
SamizdatguyNope. :)04:56
Obsidian1723yeah, backup your settings for kde and your personal files, N&P, reinstall, move the certain files back.04:56
Obsidian1723That's going to be the cleanest I think.04:56
SamizdatguyI have no idea what I erased trying to roll back an upgrade.04:57
Obsidian1723obviously use the same username or else you need to chown a bunch of stuff.04:57
Obsidian1723What did you upgrade from and to?04:57
SamizdatguyI get unable to launch "/usr/bin/startkde" X session  not found04:58
SamizdatguyWhen I try to boot.04:58
Obsidian1723Have you tried to reconfigure x?04:58
SamizdatguyHow would I do that?04:58
Obsidian1723sudo dpkg-reconfigure packagename04:59
Obsidian1723so in this case, xserver-org04:59
SamizdatguyThat's like a reinstall of X?04:59
Obsidian1723I typoed: xserver-xorg05:00
Obsidian1723Not a reinstall, a reconfiogure05:00
Obsidian1723sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg05:00
SamizdatguyOne sec, booting back on live cd.05:00
Obsidian1723You can reinstall, but that's a different deal. a reconfigure just sets it back to factory default, so to speak.05:00
SamizdatguyIf I run this from a live CD, will the changes get written to my hd?05:01
Obsidian1723ah eff.. thats right you areu sing the live cd05:02
Obsidian1723that wont work.05:02
Obsidian1723You need to configure the x on your pc, not on the live cd.05:02
Obsidian1723Is gparted on that live cd?05:02
SamizdatguyI can get into shell recovery, but not with networking.05:02
SamizdatguyHow can I mount my ethernet from CLI?05:03
Obsidian1723Using it you can unmount yoyur hard drive, force a disk check, reboot, eject the live cd, let the system boot upo, see if it works or if it dumps you to a shell. If it dumps to shell, reconfigure x and reboot.05:03

SamizdatguyI have KDE partition manager.05:05
Obsidian1723sudo /etc/init.d/networking start05:05
Obsidian1723Well, you can install gparted on the live cd. It will go away on reboot, but you can do it.05:06
Obsidian1723sudo apt-get install gparted05:06
Obsidian1723then sudo gparted05:06
Obsidian1723then do what I said to do with it.05:06
SamizdatguyOkay, I'm in gparted05:08
SamizdatguyIt looks like I'm listed as a lvm2 pv file system05:09
SamizdatguyI can boot into recovery shell from the live CD.05:10
Obsidian1723that is on the live cd I think05:11
Obsidian1723You need to locate your internal hard drive.05:11
SamizdatguyOh, wait, I meant from grub.05:11
SamizdatguyVia advnced options.05:11
Obsidian1723If you have your /home backed up, it may be just faster to nuke and pave. Im sure I could fix it if I were there or had remote access, but I don't.05:12
SamizdatguyI think so too.05:13
SamizdatguyThis is gonna be a mess, thanks fro your help.05:13
Obsidian1723No problem. there's just only so much I can do this way.05:17
Obsidian1723Best way to know how to use Linux is to fix it.05:17

andybrinei do use gimp and inkscape15:26
andybrinenot a huge fan of inkscape but do like gimp15:26
TheLordOfTimeandybrine, you may want to first check if its compatible with wine15:26
andybrinei would just like to go back to using photoshop15:26
TheLordOfTimeandybrine, i've heard weird things about photoshop on wine, esp. since CS615:26

chamyou mean chmod ?23:09
WizardNo, I mean rights.23:10

RaphaelBarroselementaryOS like, or something like Icon-Only Task Manager, but where I can put my desktop and trash icons without them scaling diffrently from the icons on the icon-only task manager (there are some icons that don't stay on the dock, like Blender :{ )23:57
