F3Speechdemondin: you could move the partisions about and install on a new partision while saving your old but tbh if your new easier to back them up insead of choosing wrong option and losing them00:01

froohhey guys, I'm fiddling with two factor auth in xscreensaver and xscreensaver is complaining that it can't find my gnome-keyring00:09
froohdoes anyone have any clue what that has to do with anything?00:10
frooh(to be clear, I cannot log in at all)00:10
froohactually, two factor is a red herring, it only seems to have anything to do with the yubikey stuff I'm messing with00:11
kylescottmcgillfrooh: gnome-keyring holds all passwords stored in Ubuntu, so yubikey will need to be able to find this in order for it to work properly00:15
fellipehi, does ubuntu remove files in /tmp while system  is running?00:15
bigbadbenI installed Kubuntu and it has horrible dual monitor support is there anyway I can install ubuntu again, if I just install the ubuntu desktop will I get the ubuntu software center, along with all the other programs ubuntu has?00:20
Squarepybigbadben, ubuntu desktop? you mean unity?00:21
Squarepyor the full installer00:21
froohkylescottmcgill: ok, so it wants me to have a pkcs11 file in my keyring cache; other non-X11 things (sudo, login) work with the yubikey00:21

dr_williskslater:  in 12.10 it enables my 2nd monitor when its plugged in. nvidia/twinview00:28
kslaterwhat I would *like* to have happen is when my laptop lid is closed, but it's in the docking station, to drive the two external monitors00:28
kslaterand when I take it out to drive the laptop LCD00:29
kslaterthat would be really great to get working.00:29
ikoniahow are you connecting 2 external monitors from a laptop00:29
ikoniakslater: that should be possible00:29
kslaterI have a docking station that supports it00:29
ikoniaso it will depend on how the docking station works in terms of linux support00:29

kylescottmcgillok then its actually only two files then you need00:52
unknown_dr_willis this happens every time i boot up00:53
dr_willisunknown_:  with all these weird errors id have to wonder if somthing was not messed up during ther install, or a bad cd/burn/download, or some hw related issues.00:53
kylescottmcgillalso, inside that .xinitrc file you can have other applets00:53
kylescottmcgilleg: bluetooth-applet gnome-sound-applet00:54
unknown_dr_willis I check the cd and it passed with no errors but yes i think it may be that as well is there any log files we can look at that may give more info?00:54
dr_willisunknown_:  /var/log has all logs00:55
dr_willisunknown_:  id try a 12.10 install.00:55
unknown_what log would be most helpful right now?00:55
Bino1710does anyone know how to change the back round image for the log in screen00:56
unknown_oh this may be helpful i used the altenate install cd because i wanted to encrypt my install with lvm00:56
dr_willisBino1710:  for lightdm? it auto changes to the one the user has selected. or you can edddit the image in /usr/share/backgrounds (i recall) or edit the lightdm configs00:57
dr_willisunknown_:  i never use lvm.  never neeeded it on a home system00:57
Bino1710ok thanks for the info00:57
unknown_if i upgrade to 12.10 will my lvm stay in place?00:58
dr_willisBino1710:  theres some tweak tools out fore it also00:58
ecebought an hp g62 notebook used today because had ubuntu and talked em into $150. need to do an OS upgrade and the auto upgrade failed since its an older build00:58
kylescottmcgilloh that lvm, sorry i thought that was in reference to lightdm00:58
dr_willisunknown_:  if its a clean install why does it matter?  why do you really need a lvm?00:58

karol__Hi all01:04
dr_willisGavin_v:  i just move my config files/dirs to a backup dir then log out/back in01:05
GeorgeJI've create a 100G LVM logical volume and formatted it as ext4. df -h reports the partition as having 99G, of which 188M is used and 94G available, where's the rest?01:05
Gavin_vdr_jesus, thanks01:05
dr_willis5% of ext2/3/4 is reserved for root/file recovery. tuneable via the tune2fs command GeorgeJ01:06
GeorgeJThere's nothing on the partition, so I guess 188M is how much ext4 needs for its structures, but what about the extra 5GB that are missing01:06
GeorgeJdr_willis: Aha! Fascinating! Thank you!01:06
dr_willisfor data drives i set that to 0%   system drives i may set it to 1%01:07
dr_willison a 3TB /    1% is a lot ;)01:07
GeorgeJHmm, why set it to 0%? Will that no hinder file recovery01:07
GeorgeJData drives can still fuck up.01:07
dr_willisfor my video data external storage. i dont worrrry about recovery01:08
dr_willisi have backups01:08
GeorgeJHmm, that's a great point!01:08
dr_willisthey are most always 98% full anyway01:08

dr_willis -m0 i think.. check the man pages01:11
kylescottmcgillwhat do you call the command line operators ( && << ; ) i want to see if there is an exhaustive list somewhere01:11
dr_willisit can do it several ways01:11
kylescottmcgilldo they have a name? operators isnt the correct terminology according to google01:12

chiques_Are there any recorded key logger malware instances for historical Ubuntu versions?02:20
jessejamesYes i'm aware of that but can other users hack my pc from online ?02:21
ikoniachiques_: ubuntu has not been released with key loggers or malware02:21
Tex_Nickjessejames : as far as online privacy ... bout the only thing you might worry about would be browser cookies used to track you02:21
Klinxchiques_, nope, nothing02:22
jessejameshmmm so there is notting to worry about ?02:22
chiques_ikonia, I'm referring to any "trojan" or "hijacking" type of programs for the intent of stealing a users' log information.02:22
Klinxaltough there IS still a possibility, if the main server got compromised.02:22
ikoniachiques_: there is nothing been released as part of ubuntu, of course these programs exist02:23
Tex_Nickjessejames : well at the present time ... linux is practically the safest OS on the market02:23
jessejamesreally waw, thanks tex_nick02:23
chiques_ikonia, I understand this is not part of the Ubuntu release but I'm just curious of these attempts are caught by the Ubuntu developers02:24
ikoniachiques_: well, seeing as the ubuntu developers have control over what they release.....there has not been anything, because they control what is released.02:24
Tex_Nickjessejames : you're welcome02:24
chiques_ikonia, so who addresses security holes?02:25
jessejameshow do you message me directly by the way ?02:25
ikoniachiques_: either the ubuntu team or the package upstream team, depending on where/what the issue is02:25
NeoColossus1020_Is there a way to pass multiple commands to apt-get? Ex: sudo apt-get -y autoclean, autoremove; instead of doing sudo apt-get autoclean; sudo apt-get autoremove02:25

SonikkuAmericadr_willis: Well yeah, new to me (I had this 32-bit dino from like 2001)03:16
dr_willisi think linux 64bit is older then windows 64bit by some time also.03:16
dr_willisi basically only use 64bit ubuntu. with few issues.03:17
n0hxso im having sound issues in firefox, like music players won't play, any ideas what that could be?03:17

TranshumanistThe installer hanging on my 2004 era laptop with various broken parts and 512mb of RAM when the installer requirs 1.5 times that? Not weird at all. I thought I'd ask if anybody had some tips though. :)03:18

SonikkuAmericawad: *facepalms* What kind? CWS? Java? ...03:18
wadJava applets, sorry. I just realized that it's probably because Chromium can't find my version of java (which I installed manually). Any idea how to tell Chromium where my java is?03:19
SonikkuAmericadr_willis: I've done both versions of Ubuntu (both hard install and Wubi) and 32 performed better than 64, I think however the reasons are obvious.03:19

cheebuhi all... happy new year!!!... I have a Radeon HD 6470M Graphics card are there drivers for it on ubuntu03:20

Do a quick google search for problems running 32-bit applications on 64-bit Windows and you might realise attacking Linux for 32-bit apps not always running flawlessly on 64-bit distros is kind of...

SonikkuAmericawad: Might I ask why you need a specific version? Why not just have the most recent OpenJDK or Java at the ready?03:25

wadI have four versions installed, with a symbolic link to choose which one I want to use.03:26
SonikkuAmericaOne second...03:26
wadI'm writing a java web application right now, and it's going to need an applet in it. I haven't bothered to configure chromium to run applets yet.03:27
SonikkuAmericaDoes OpenJDK have all the older versions packed into it or do they need to be installed 1 by 1?03:27
SonikkuAmerica(Public question)03:27
* wad nods03:27
SonikkuAmericawad: OK, so we need Chromium to reference the correct version...03:28
SonikkuAmericawad: Does [ ln -s ] work at all?03:28
wadYes. Ideally, I would just create a symbolic link from my java to some directory... yes03:28
wadThere is a /opt/google/03:28
wadI just don't know which directory to link the right .so file into. I've tried four different ones; none work.03:29
wadI guess I could try diving the source of Chromium... ;)03:29
SonikkuAmericaI would assume using [ ln -s ] to change the link for /usr/bin/java/ &-or /usr/lib/java/ would work (not sure)03:30

subcoolTex_Nick, thanks for the info - but it didnt work out. ffmpeg is depreciated, avconv is- a pain- atleast to install, I tried openshot- doesnt support it.. and now im using avidemux, but i keeps messing up the sound.03:42
Transhumanistit won't give you any status updates until dd completes03:42
fungoatTranshumanist: Is there a verbose option?03:42
SonikkuAmericamega1: Or to limit all users, just uncomment [ chroot_local_user=YES ] in the /etc/vsftpd.conf file.03:42
MoL0ToVfungoat, yes, but if you want merely delete partitions lvm and have a ready disk for a new install, you can simply run dd for 30 secs, then CTRL+C03:43
MoL0ToVwothout blanking ENTIRELY the disk with zeroes03:43
fungoatThank you Transhumanist and MoL0ToV. Wish me luck…03:44
MoL0ToVis waste of time if the data on the disk is not sensible data03:44
psusifungoat, if you get IO errors then your drive is probably broke... check the SMART status in the disk utility03:44
Tex_Nicksubcool : if you want we could go to private chat ... i would be glad to help you with ffmpeg ... it will do more than you can imangine ;)03:44

subcooli tried to laod it, and it said to use avconv. im going to bed now anyways- thanks. it wsa just to edit something funny for my friend. But now facebook wont even let me upload it, so f. it03:45
psusifungoat, you also don't want to go writing all over an SSD.. writes wear them out03:45
Transhumanistfungoat: why are you doing it this way?03:45
fungoatpsusi: I'm hoping not.03:45
Transhumanistdo you just want to erase the partition to make news ones or install a new OS?03:45
Transhumanistif so, use GParted erase instead.03:46
litropyActionParsnip, You'll probably know: by default, what owner is assigned to www in apache2? I chowned it accidentally.03:46
jjgalvez__ezrafree: Thanks for the advice on changing my wifi channel, that did the trick, now my speed it back to normal. Really odd most of the channels give me horrible but I found one that works great!03:46

MoL0ToVgood night people!03:46
fungoatTransfusion: Yes. Exekept the LVMs from Fedora won't go away. Even with GParted.03:46
ActionParsnipLitropy:   root:www    maybe......03:46
psusifungoat, what do you mean they won't go away?03:46
Jordan_Ufungoat: wipefs might remove the stale LVM signatures, though they shouldn't generally cause problems. What problem are you actually having?03:47
MoL0ToVa question: in gnome2, gnome panel, etc... howto enable normal windows scroller? the one present, that appears only rollover, is frustrating me...03:47
fungoatpsusi: They cannot be wiped in GParted or Fedora's Disks utility.03:47
psusifungoat, gparted can delete them just fine03:48
ActionParsnipJjgalvez__: there are lines you can add to /etc/sysctl.conf   to make it a little faster by using more RAM as cache03:48
somsiplitropy: www-data is the usual owner of the apache2 process, and /var/www is chown root:www-data03:48
fungoatpsusi: Unfortunately, not the case here.03:48
psusifungoat, you'll have to be more specific03:49
jjgalvez__ActionParsnip: do you know of a good tutorial, the ones I've read are really confusing03:49

PoorCollegeGuy40GB = useless04:35
Graymayrebut anyway04:36
TranshumanistMy Ubuntu install is usually 15gb or so. 40 gb is plenty if you have another HD04:36

TranshumanistWhen you were in 64-bit Ubuntu with the broken wireless radio, did you check for a proprietary driver to use?04:44

TranshumanistAilos: wait a few minutes, if nothing happens, restart and try again. That's what I'd do. Or find the package name and use apt-get instead (I prefer this)04:46
Graymayrenvm, let me find it and lik04:46
Ailosalright, ill be patient04:46
TranshumanistGarymayre: a lot of hardware is very closed-source and proprietary and the manufacturers don't like Linux. So sometimes it's just a case of buying from better companies. Doesn't always help when you have existing hardware that you want to use though.04:47
Graymayreand little to no extra money to get something compatible04:48
Tex_Nicknalidixic : if you don't get an answer here ... you might try #mysql & #httpd04:48

iBurleyDoes Ubuntu have problems recognizing side mouse buttons?04:49
TranshumanistSo Graymayre, when you install 32-bit Ubuntu, be sure to check the proprietary drivers list in the software sources section of the system preferences04:49
Transhumanistyou might have a driver listed for your wireless radio after all04:50
usr13Graymayre: Is it in now?04:50
Graymayre(thats what she said)04:50
Graymayrebut no, still on the computer im talking to you on04:50
Graymayreoh, the stick, yes04:50
Graymayrebut im on windows 704:50
usr13Graymayre: And you are booted to MS Windows?04:50
usr13Graymayre: Just do the install and see what happens.04:51
Graymayrei didnt know how to check proprietary drivers before04:51
Graymayreshould i try it with the 64 bit version first?04:51
Graymayresee if it actually is there?04:51
usr13Graymayre: I would use 32bit04:52
Transhumanistjust go with 64-bit04:52
Transhumanistyou've only got 4gb of RAM anyway04:52
usr13Graymayre: There is not much in the way of specific advice we can give because we don't know much about the hardware yet.04:52
TranshumanistI mean go with 32-bit04:53
Graymayreanyone play eve?04:53

MeanEYEAilos: Starting nvidia-settings will tell you if nvidia driver is being used.05:15
Gyro54What is wrong with this as an entry in fstab - // /mnt/p_drive cifs Kevin,password=new,iocharset=utf8,mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 005:15
MeanEYEAilos: Also, lsmod | grep nvidia should show if driver is loaded by kernel.05:16
Ailosnvidia x server settings?05:16
MeanEYEAilos: that's the command name: nvidia-settings. Basically it's nVidia's control panel.05:16
Ailosand running that command outputs:05:16
Ailosnvidia              10236405  4205:16
MeanEYEGyro54: What's the problem?05:17
MeanEYEGyro54: you are probably missing user=Kevin instead of just Kevin.05:17
Gyro54MeanEYE:  This works manually  - sudo mount -t cifs // /mnt/p_drive -o username=Kevin,password=new05:17

Fonsieim trying to use unetbootin and keeps saying there isnt a flash drive there05:29
Fonsiewhen there is05:29
MeanEYEFonsie: unetbootin requires super user. Did you run it with sudo?05:29
MeanEYEFonsie: Oh, sorry. From which OS are you running unetbootin?05:30
Gyro54MeanEYE: OK05:30
Fonsiewindows 705:30
MeanEYEFonsie: You need to reformat your USB stick to FAT32. Currently it's probably NTFS.05:31
Fonsiealready did that05:32
MeanEYEHm, that's strange.05:34
MeanEYESo you are sure USB is FAT32?05:35
Fonsieit was ntfs and it told me to make sure it was formatted to fat32 so i did and it still isnt showing up05:36
MeanEYEYou did remove and connect drive again right. Sorry for asking stupid questions, it just seems strange.05:37
Fonsiei actually had to reformat it on a different pc because the driver to reformat it to fat32 only runs on xp05:37
Fonsieso yes05:37
MeanEYEHm, that's even stranger. Win7 has FAT32 support as most memory cards use that file system.05:38
MeanEYEAm stumped here. Perhaps someone else has some ideas.05:39

laze1989Etyneo: Depends. If you are using the OSS radeon drivers - only if you are having a muxed system. This means, you will have an option in your BIOS to change the active graphics card. If you have a muxless system, the OSS radeon drivers are not capable of switching, yet. If prime support majors, it will be available. But nevertheless, the drivers are not that good.07:44

laze1989Etyneo: If you are using fglrx (proprietary AMD drivers) you cannot use them with Ubuntu 12.10 out of the box (they are incompatible to Xorg 1.13, whats used in Ubuntu 12.10). But they are capable of switchting.07:45

NevinNo, it is a custom PC. I have Windows 7 running on it.07:46
ubottuNevin: UEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware, it is meant as a replacement for the BIOS.

To put it in a nutshell, I have installed Windows 7, then used a flash drive to install Ubuntu. Installation reports no errors, however, when I restart, grub does not appear. I have tried Easy BCD, Ubuntu secure remix, grub rescue tool, etc. No matter what I08:23
Caseydo, grub will not install. At the most, I got a grub rescue menu but not able to ever boot into the OS. I am using 12.10 btw. Does anyone have any ideas?08:23
Tex_NickNevin : it's been a long time since i've seen a software install smoke the hardware ;-)08:24
EtyneoSirClueless: Yes. There US a software.switch under Windize to turn it off normally. However, Linux support ofthese sorts of hybrid card is lacking08:24

DrCodevery strange09:18
Tex_NickNevin : ok then windows 8 has hijacked the UEFI ... so to speak09:18
dr_willisDrCode:  you have to use offtets and other options to mount if the image is a whole disk. vs a partition09:18

DrCodebut how can I find offset?09:18

EmanonOr, Cloaky, if you have dcfldd: dcfldd if=/dev/<your install partition> of=/dev/<external drive>/path/to/file/you/want.img10:46
EmanonThen just dd (or dcfldd) the img back to your drive to restore.10:46
CloakyThanks Emanon I'll give that a go... Do you know if there is a GUI to do this? I'm no stranger to the command line, but I have other family members who also use Ubuntu10:48
EmanonNot sure, you could make them a shell script to click.10:49
EmanonJust make sure you define the drives in question by uuid instead of /dev/sd*10:49
EmanonSo they are always found properly.10:49
=== Vobine is now known as Psychoholic
Cloakynice one10:49
Cloakythanks for the help10:50
EmanonCloaky: /dev/disk/by-uuid/<whatever the drive's uuid is>10:50

Cloakynot too sure... still 12.0410:56
EmanonI'm just approaching this from a forensics standpoint and dd (as well as it's forks and patch dc3dd and dcfldd) are just the cleanest/fastest ways that I know of.10:57

EmanonFeatures that make them excellent for saving data from failing drives.10:59

ichatAndreaUbuntu,  - cynamon  as opsed to thair   gnome2 junk mate is actually a really nice,  DE,   but its   A large,  B not as stable as   it has to be to use it on a production machine... ie  your comanpy desktop...11:25
AndreaUbuntuWell, Emanon & ichat....choice is good :) I'll stick to Unity for the time being....but i'd love it if they made compiz a little less laggy11:26

ichati have been using it  my personal work laptop for  over  a year  it was a 17inc   1600x900  screen.. but my new   1366x768 ultrabook was just to small for it... and i found that after a long road of personally dislike    unity finally proved a point...11:27
AndreaUbuntui love mint's refined stuff though....for example my webcam worked out of the box with mint 14....does not with Ubuntu 12.10...and after a WEEK of trying, it still does not11:27
AndreaUbuntuyes Unity is great on a small laptop screen :)11:27
EmanonI have to mod a transmit profile to go to 2W though. BO standard top end is 1W.11:27

AndreaUbuntuI'm curious about Elementary when it finally (if it does) come out of beta.....the only issue seems that unless you use 'their' apps, the UI is not so consistent after all11:29
AndreaUbuntuichat, yes same kernel...which boggles the mind too....it's an integrated HP TrueVision HD cam....it's detected fine...just won't work though11:29
dr_willisamazing thing about consistent UI's is how quickly they can get dumped. ;)11:29

dr_williskatarakt:  you could always use some sort of grep/awk/sed filter11:31
EmanonNah, no issue. "ifconfig wlan3 down && iw reg set BO && ifconfig wlan3 up" and it's done.11:31

Guest75120I'm looking for templates for LibreOffice.  I am looking to make a CV for a job.  Where can I find that or a word processor that can do that?11:35

YolarPWhich is like, the most annoying thing ever.11:39
AndreaUbuntuichat - yes i miss having window tabs.....I wonder if Unity could implement a way to rpeview multiple windows when you have multiple instances of the same program open....so that its easier to choose...11:40

dr_willisdaimoh:  you could try reinstalling grub. and setting it to use TEXT mode and a Text based grub menu . so you can at least see grub and any error messages.12:33
claudiu_When I shutdown the laptop.12:34
daimohdr_willis: that would be ideal - how can i reinstall grub on a disk i didn't boot from though?12:34
daimohfor instance, i have the HD mounted in /mnt12:34
daimohit's /mnt/sda112:34
dr_willisdaimoh:  that boot-repair tool mentioned in the !fixgrub wiki12:34

arshavincan't mount android sd card in ubuntu either automatically or manually anybody got any idea12:38
EmanonLike the sd by itself or when it's in the android device?12:42
arshavinEmanon: I gues so12:44
dr_willisgotta love exacting answers. ;)12:44
ridolienAnyone using Extreme Networks Equipment here?12:44
arshavinwhen is android device12:44
mrthgwhich item on a given server increases, when a web server's gets more http requests to proces12:44
dr_willisarshavin:  and what android version is on the devcice?12:44
ridolienmrthg, the number of http requests increases12:45
=== dennis_ is now known as koderde
EmanonIs have you selected "Turn on USB storage" when you plug in the device arshavin ?12:45
arshavindr_willis: ginger bread,it never really mounts,12:45
EmanonIs that even an option in GB?12:45
arshavinEmanon : yes12:45
mrthglike when more people approach the server via browser12:45
dr_willisTheres some posts/articals on the OMGubuntu site and WEbupd8 blog sites on how to mount android devices that use that MTP method.12:45
arshavinEmanon : yes,it is na option but nothing shows up12:46
magik_Good morning everyone12:46
EmanonIs the device unlocked?12:46
dr_willisI just use ssh/wirelless tools to transfer stuff to my phones.12:46
arshavinEmanon : Yes, it is unlocked12:46
EmanonWas it when you plugged it in?12:46
ridolienarshavin, there is definately a package installation required to support android filesystem mounting in Ubuntu12:46
arshavinI actually need to partition my sdcard using fdisk so ssh won't help12:47
=== ridolien is now known as plagerism
EmanonYea, IDK about GB but JB just mounts as a USB device, no help to arshavin though.12:47
dr_willisarshavin:  y dint think you are going to partion it over usb, while its in the phone.12:47
EmanonYou could try flashing TWRP if there is a version for your device and mounting it as USB from there.12:48
arshavindr_willis: i have done that12:48
dr_willisi cant even imagine why you need to partion it really. ;)12:48
arshavinEmanon : what is this TWRP12:48
dr_willisNight all. have fun.12:48
EmanonIt's a recovery image, like ClockWorkMod Recovery.12:48
arshavindr_willis: a2sd stuff12:48
maxbAndroid seems to be aggressively deprecating USB mass storage support, my One X lost that in favour of MTP when updated from ICS to JB12:49
daimohdr_willis: reinstalling grub looks like it might have done the trick for me.. i've successfully booted off the HD in recovery mode - many, many thanks.12:50
EmanonI AM using a custom rom maxb so...12:50
EmanonBut if he has root he can flash twrp and do it from there independent of android itself.12:50
arshavinEmanon: well my old sgy just wouldn't accept any custom roms since i flashed it with some bad options in odin12:51
EmanonDo you have root?12:51
arshavinEmanon: I lost root after flashing with stock rom now I am badly stuck I already have cwm.zip but ccant flash it12:52
EmanonCan you get it to go into adb and detect it that way?12:52
arshavinyes adb works fine but without root it's useless12:52
ElysiumNetwhen grub-pc asks me to install it on all partitions, should I install it on the partitions that are in the raid, or on the raid itself?12:53
EmanonHold on, I'm looking up the SGY12:53
magik_I have a question it is kind of off topic but if anyone has an answer for me that would be much appreciated,  I live in a small town and there is only a few places here that do computer work but they charge a fortune.  If I wanted to open up my own repair center would I need to get a special license and insurance or can I use a disclaimer anyone have a link with information about that?12:53
arshavini can push files to my sdccard but after rebooting the device they dissapear12:53
EmanonAww that's a cute lil phone.12:53
ElysiumNetmagik_: IANAL, but I think you just need to get the basic business requirements12:54
ElysiumNetregistered business, paying taxes, bookkeeping, etc12:54
arshavinyea it's nice but without custom roms it seems boring12:54
ElysiumNetthe liability/insurance thing should be rolled up into when setting up a business as well12:54
magik_k, but I would need some form of insurance incase someone complains right?12:55
gacmagik_: depends which country you're in, but you'd need whatever any other physical shop in your area needs (i.e. maybe public liability insurance for your premises to protect customers, insurance against being broken into, etc)12:55
EmanonAnd you say ODIN no longer works at all?12:55
ElysiumNetgac: I think he means insurance against accidentily wrecking a computer, or having to announce a computer as wrecked12:55
arshavinodin works but flashin custom roms does not work12:55
ElysiumNetsince he mentioned *repair* shop12:55
gacI wouldn't think there is such an insurance policy? or it'd be covered by the accidental damage portion of the contents insurance12:56
ElysiumNetgac: who do you charge if the car mechanic breaks something?12:56
magik_Ok thanks allot guys I appreciate the info12:56
EmanonThat's weird it's not supposed to be able to deny a forced flash from download mode12:56
gacas a customer, I hold the garage responsible, where the garage get the money from isn't my business12:56
gacthey may just pay the cost, they may claim off their public liability insurance, whatever12:56
ElysiumNetgac: and what if it's something that broke due to time? and it just happened to be in the garage's hands12:57
ElysiumNetor it was already a piece of crap car to begin with that has been festering for decades12:57
arshavinactually i use cwm recovery to flash custom roms in .zip files and stock rom with odin works fine12:57
gacagain, not my problem, if the garage hand back a car with a different fault to what it went in with then it's up to them to fix as far as I'm concerned12:57
ElysiumNetI'm pretty sure car garages don't just outright decline to fix cars; or do they?12:58
KM0201gac: lmao, you're full of it.12:58
gacunless they can prove beyond all doubt that the work they did couldn't possibly have caused it12:58
ElysiumNetgac: I'm playing the evil client here. you know, the one with oil and chocolate smeared all over and inside of a SNES12:58
KM0201trusdt me on this... they are not liable in the situation you describe.12:58
ElysiumNetand having louched it in baby poo12:58
gacKM0201: I'm not, I've been in that situation at least twice. had a car back with a fault it didn't have when it went in, been fixed at no cost each time12:58
Emanonarshavin: So can you flash a rooted rom from cwm?12:58
gacfairly minor cost (couple of hundred pounds, tops) admittedly, not thousands12:58
gacbut they still paid12:59
KM0201gac: you're full of it, trust me.. i've probably been in that situation way wya more than you (on the business side) and i've told MANY people like you to pound sand.. they kick and scream, and threaten with l awyers, i just chuckle, and tell them to bring it12:59
KM0201just because i'm working on something, and something else breaks, doesn't mena i'm responsible to fix it, unless i deliberately or through negligence,k broke it.13:00
arshavinno that stopped working since i checked extra options in odin13:00
ElysiumNetanyway, grub is asking me to install to all partitions... should I install it to all partitions, or just to /dev/md1?13:00
gacKM0201: then you probably wouldn't see my business again ;) but that's your prerogative and it may be a UK/US difference. All I know is that I've had no problems in the past in this situation as a customer13:00
ElysiumNetgac: we probably wouldn't want to see your business again :P13:00
KM0201gac: and w/ that attitude, i wouldn't want it to be frank.13:00
gacagain, your choice :)13:01
ElysiumNet"Here is this crap that will definitely break if you even more than just glance at it!"13:01
KM0201some customers, are just to big a PITA to keep... you have to make a decision.13:01
=== BradCrittenden is now known as bac
ElysiumNet"And you'll pay me for EVERY SINGLE PENNY for this WORTHLESS steaming pile of crap"13:01
EmanonWow, arshavin that's completely beyond my ability to fix have you tried at xda?13:01
ElysiumNetit's called the reverse scam13:01
EmanonOr can you reset CWM to factory?13:02
gacbut if I got a piece of equipment back with a fault it didn't have when I handed it over, I certainly wouldn't just hand over my own money unless there was a very good reason (for example the engine broke while the garage were changing a rear bulb, those two things couldn't possibly be related)13:02
KM0201gac: but my point is, you insinuated it is their "responsibility" (ie, legally) to fix, it is not.. trust me13:02
EmanonNot the rom FROM cwm. CWM itself.13:02
gacI said "I hold the garage responsible", I believe, not that it was without doubt their responsibility13:03
EaglemanDo i need a specific order when installing these packets?  apt-get install mysql-server php5 php5-mysql php5-mcrypt php5-gd php5-intl apache2 libapache2-mod-php513:03

qweryhey guys13:12
qweryi want to set up a http server locally and stream all my audio output to it, so i can listen to it with my network hifi device13:13
qweryread some blog articles about doing that with vlc, for example, but it didnt quite work..13:13
qweryany ideas how that can be done "easily"?13:13
KM0201would a daap server work?13:14
moinnick moin''13:14
Emanonqwery: http://www.subsonic.org/pages/index.jsp ?13:14
moin\nick moin''13:14
qweryseems tht ffmpeg has some streaming capabilities, but it always looks like it streams to an existing server in the network or something, wondering how that works13:14
jhutchins_wkqwery: First, why an http server?  Second, do you want to stream TO the server or FROM the server?13:14
KM0201oh damnn, subsonic, that should work fine13:14
=== moin is now known as moin``
=== moin`` is now known as ssh_help
=== ssh_help is now known as `ssh`help
jhutchins_wkqwery: Do you want an audio stream programmed at the server, or do you want your music collection to be available from other devices?13:16
qweryKM0201: i think daap (and also dlna) would only work for files. but i also want to stream other audio output, like sound from a internet radio website or such13:16
KM0201qwery: yup, you're right,13:16
EmanonIf you donate you get a subsonic url so you don't have to worry about making a static ip or forwarding ports (iirc) and you can stream audio AND video.13:16
KM0201subsonic is probably the best bet,13:16
qweryjhutchins_wk: not only the music collection, but all audio output. thats what makes a http server necessary i guess13:16
KM0201although i don't know about audio from a website, etc13:17
qweryhow does subsonic work?13:17
`ssh`helphi, how does one setup ssh for a public IP? I have it working within my LAN but no luck with public IPs.13:17
Emanonqwery: sets up a local server that streams your whole media library via apps or an html interface.13:17
jhutchins_wkqwery: http has nothing to do with audio.13:17
EmanonThe link I sent explains it.13:18
Boreeas_I am trying to troubleshoot my laptops (Dell Vostro 3700) hibernation mode. It appears to save correctly, but fails to resume, saying it doesn't find the hibernation image: http://pastebin.com/8RCNmWjV13:18
KM0201`ssh`help: what do you mean for a public IP?13:18
jhutchins_wk`ssh`help: The device with a public ip has to have the ssh server listening on that interface.13:18
qweryEmanon: wouldnt that also only stream the files?13:18
Boreeas_It worked fine before, but since the last reinstall, I'm having trouble13:18
gac`ssh`help: all you need to do is forward port 22 on your router (using the router admin tools) to the LAN IP address of the machine running sshd13:18
KM0201yeah, i think it's port 21 or 2213:19
jhutchins_wk`ssh`help: Most of us are behind NAT firewalls, so we forward a port on the firewall to the internal ssh connection.13:19
qweryjhutchins_wk: yeah, but i can get my hifi to read an http stream and play it13:19
Boreeas_I think related to that is that suspend/resume fails, too, but I can't find any logs for that13:19
EaglemanDo i need a specific order when installing these packets?  apt-get install mysql-server php5 php5-mysql php5-mcrypt php5-gd php5-intl apache2 libapache2-mod-php513:19
jhutchins_wkqwery: No, you can't, because there is no http stream.  http is web pages, that's all.13:19
Boreeas_Eagleman: No, the order doesn't matter13:19
KM0201no, just install them all at the same time.13:19
gacEagleman: I don't think so, apt should take care of installing them in the right order to satisfy any dependencies13:19
Boreeas_Dependencies will be installed automatically, too13:19
qweryjhutchins_wk: so if i could manage to have my computers audio in such a stream, it would work13:19
WeThePeopledr_willis, are you able to change a guest session into a root session?13:19
WeThePeopleso i can access home13:19
qweryjhutchins_wk: http is a transfer protocol for files, not only html13:20
gacWeThePeople: probably not, as I guess the guest user isn't in the admin/sudo group by default13:20
Eaglemanand what if i install php first then apache and mysql or any other random order?13:20
jhutchins_wkqwery: I think gstreamer will host an audio stream, as will vlc.13:20
gacEagleman: shouldn't make any difference13:20
Eaglemannot in the same command i mean13:20
jhutchins_wkqwery: Right, files, not streams.13:20
gacstill shouldn't matter13:20
Eaglemanok, ty13:20
jhutchins_wkqwery: Pages, not audio.13:20
`ssh`helpgac: ok, I a using my modem connection. how do i do that?13:21
qweryjhutchins_wk: well, but that doesnt really matter for that application, right? it is just that i confused the terms, isnt it?13:21
jhutchins_wkqwery: You can use a web page to initiate a stream over another transport, but it's not over http.13:21
gac`ssh`help: as in a dialup connection?13:21
`ssh`helpjhutchins_wk: Both computers have the open-ssh-server installed,13:22
`ssh`helpgac: yea13:22
qweryjhutchins_wk: ah, i see.13:22
`ssh`helpgac: kindly help bro,13:22
qweryjhutchins_wk: how would it work with gstreamer/vlc?13:22
gac`ssh`help: honestly, I have no idea, I haven't used a dialup in over 10 years13:22
jhutchins_wk`ssh`help: What are you actually trying to do?  What commands have you tried?13:22
gac`ssh`help: but I think once you have the dialup connection established, you may need to restart the ssh server so that it can bind to the dialup IP (because it wouldn't have existed when ssh was started)13:23
sazawalI need to install ubuntu from network. Please help!13:23

mikew68I'd like to run a media server in 12.10, and stream through DLNA to my blu-ray. I've tried XBMC, it connects but does not play .AVI files, so I set up PLEX, it plays the .AVI files but doesn't play .mp414:04
ichatblami,  - sorry was afk for a bit,   thnx for the heads up ... i really should try it i gues..   win8 toshiba is supposed to be  full efi.   so not having legacy in my loader would be perfect i guess14:04
greenbrotherbut it have some bug14:04
wuqi actually tried a few other distros and had similar problems when i used my router14:04
greenbrotherthis is only on 12.1014:04
wuqbut router works fine on my other computer that runs Win714:05
layke_Pici, It's not in the feature list. so I don't think so. Thanks for the pointer though.14:05
magik_greenbrother, your best bet is to post a bug on the ubuntu forums there are allot of people there that are very smart and will answer your question in more detail.14:05
sukuwuq, has that computer ever worked with that router?14:05
jhutchins_wkwuq: The OS has nothing to do with how a system works with a router, that's strictly TCP/IP.14:05
=== ubuntu__ is now known as Guest70986
sukuor any router for that matter?14:05
greenbrothermany peaple have that maked, but i can't fint fix14:06
wuqi belive it did, before it was running windows millinum and i recall it working.14:06
mikew68arshavin I'd like to run a media server in 12.10, and stream through DLNA to my blu-ray. I've tried XBMC, it connects but does not play .AVI files, so I set up PLEX, it plays the .AVI files but doesn't play .mp414:06
arshavinmikew68: http://dpc.ucore.info/blog/2012/11/07/dlna-streaming-in-ubuntu-12-dot-10/14:07
jhutchins_wkwuq: So what is the problem?  Can you not reach external addresses?14:07
magik_greenbrother, it might be the access settings you have on the folder your trying to browse.14:07
sukuwuq, since you are able to get the computer to work when bypassing the router, i would assume it is a router issue and not an os issue14:07
wuqhm, i see, i kind f thought it was an issue to do with the way i did the settings14:08
greenbrotheri have maked all settings and it should work, but...14:08
greenbrotheri haven't luck14:08
sukuwuq, just so i make sure i read your post correctly, you have tried plugging the system into the router over an ethernet cable and it doesnt work either?14:08
wuqwhy would the router not recognize the OS, for example?14:08
ichatWug,  the router doesn know the os14:09
wuqand thank you for looking at the post suku14:09
sukuwuq, the router and os are independent of each other... a router doesnt detect os's14:09
sukuthey communicate over the tcp/ip stack14:10
wuqso are saying that it may be having trouble detecting my network card/14:10
ichatwuq. correct14:10
sukuand since you are able to connect when you take the router out of the picture, it tells me that it is likely a router or network card issue14:10
ichatthat could be a media error (sorry: a cable fault),   or some other technical issue14:11
magik_wuq, you could always try to hard boot your router see if that works.14:11
wuqmy computer is very old, almost 11 years-ish. is this a common issue I wonder - old network cards not work with new routers14:11
jhutchins_wkwuq: No.14:12
wuqmagik_ could you explain hard boot14:12
jhutchins_wkwuq: If the cables fit they should work.14:12
magik_wuq, when i say hard boot, I mean follow the instructions on doing a reset of the router usualy involves sticking a paperclip in a little hole it resets all the router settings to factory default.14:12
magik_wuq, I've had to do that with routers in the past.14:12
sukuwuq, he means either pulling the plug on the router and letting it sit for 2 mins, or even more of a hard boot would be completely resetting the factory settings on the router14:12
wuqah, yeah I have done that before but I have not tried it for this problem yet.14:13
jhutchins_wkwuq: If you do what magik_ suggests you will probably loose all ability to connect to the internet from any of your systems.14:13
ichatmagik what about  a data problem   in example  100mbit versus 10mbit   or even full duplex versus half duplex14:13
wuqwhy you say that jhutchins?14:13
jhutchins_wkwuq: You need to do basic network troubleshooting before you start messing with the router.14:13
wuqhm, for example?14:14
ichatmagik  i would explain it to him, but i have no knowledge about  hoe to detect sutch under a linux os14:14
romhi, guys.14:14
jhutchins_wkwuq: Can you state the actual problem again please?  You can't connect to external web sites or what?14:15
magik_wuq, one question i should of asked is this is a wireless router or just a ethernet cable?14:15
wuqit is outlined here http://forums.bodhilinux.com/index.php?/topic/7392-unable-to-connect-to-internet-through-my-router/14:15
sukuwuq, and if you need specific answers specific to bodhi, you can also check out #bodhilinux14:15
ichatjhutchins_wk,   agreed  but only to the extend that a hard reboot  of the router defualts to dhcp in almost all cases   so he would   be able to connect for support as soon as the device has reset....14:15
wuqthanks suku, yes i have tried there but no luck so far14:15
romwhat happens when i reinstall ubuntu with a live cd, only the main partition gets formatted or all the partitions get formatted?14:16
wuqmagik_ the router has wireless capabilities but i am using an ethernet cable14:16
Squarepyrom, that is your choice14:16
magik_wuq, hmmm ok, I think that might be a network card problem so it might not be the router at all.14:17
sukuwuq, if it is any consolation, i am running bodhi on my netbook... great distro for lightweight machines - i honestly think it is a networking issue somewhere between the router and network config14:17
jhutchins_wkichat: He would loose any local lan configuration.14:17
ichatjhutchins_wk,  only for a small bit14:17
romso if i dont want to format other partitions, i dont have to, is that so?14:17
wuqyeah, it runs amazing on my old laptop. i dont remember it ever working so smooth. i only have a small graphic issue and this connectivity issue14:18
jhutchins_wkwuq: When you connect directly to the external network, there is a remote DHCP server that provides your system with an address and routing info.  You must recreate that on the local network either using the router or a local server.14:18
jhutchins_wkwuq: Most routers have a dhcp server built in these days.14:18
ichatjhutchins_wk,  - there are no consumer grade modem routers out there that do not default do simple dhcp + nat14:18
romeven if it is previously made partitions?14:18
jhutchins_wkichat: Sure there are.14:18
donvitoVERSION=`cat /etc/slackware-version` - how can i do this command to show ubuntu version ?14:19

pigliti have got a ip-camera and i can use it from 2 pc's but the ubuntu pc wont work14:20
wuqok, so what kind of network troubleshooting are you guys suggesting14:20
piglitdont know where to start14:20
jhutchins_wkwuq: Here is the manual for your router: https://www2.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=f5d8236-4&aid=14394&scid=942&fid=4812&fn=man_f5d8236-4_8820-00097.pdf14:20
magik_wuq, start with the network card since your notconnecting wirelessly14:20
jhutchins_wkwuq: You need to know if the PC is getting an address from the router.14:20
romit is too hard for me to do that, because it takes too much time and have a lot to. and it is hard with all this power cuts in my place..14:20

Squarepydawkirst, gedit?14:21
piglitis there a way to reset the whole network setting for ubuntu ?14:21
magik_dawkirst, those are probably gedit backup files it has a setting to save files before a save so you still have the old version to go back to.14:22

wuqbut when i see the settings, my linux installed pc does nto show up14:40
wuqok logging in]14:40
usr13wuq: What is the IP address of your router?  Is it ?14:41
sukuwuq, here is a way we can make sure your router is setup for dhcp.... you said the computer you are on is windows, right? open a command prompt and type "ipconfig /all". go to the network card that has the connection and let me know what it says next to DHCP server14:41
usr13wuq: Ok, on our Ubuntu PC type this:  sudo ifconfig eth0
usr13wuq: Now this:  ping -c3
magik_wuq, so is for the router and your working computer is or 3 or 4 right?14:42
wuqping is unreachable14:43
usr13wuq: ifconfig    Tell us what IP it has.14:43
usr13wuq: verify that it actually has  as it's IP.14:44
magik_usr13, I think he said it was
sukuusr13, if we just change his ip to the same subnet, we will still need to setup the routes... wouldnt it be easier to find out if his router is even running dhcp so he can bypass having to do that?14:44
usr13magik_: No he didn't14:44
wuqyes, i belive that is right magik_ --- also suku DHCP is enabled14:44

sukuusr13, assuming the dhcp server on the router is running14:46
magik_ok what does it say for dhcp server?14:46
usr13suku: I was trying to determine that.14:46
magik_should be somewhere in the settings.14:46
usr13wuq: You need to try another cable.14:46
sukuthats why i had him check on his windows box where it gives the address of the dhcp server - that would confirm if the dhcp server is running14:46
magik_Try a different ethernet cable if that does not work you need a new network card.14:47
usr13wuq: What does it say the dhcp pool is? - ?14:47
wuqbut this cable works fine when i plug directly into the wall14:47
usr13wuq: "into the wall"?14:47
sukuwuq, have you also tried using a different port on the router, or even better, have you tried using the exact port that your windows computer is on?14:47
magik_usr13, he meant the cable modem itself14:47
wuqas in, without using the router i can connect with no problem14:47
wuqyes, tried vall ports14:48
wuqthe DHCP pool is 2-10014:48
usr13sorry I don't know what a vall poort is.14:48
wuqi meant, tried all ports14:48
magik_ok wuq if you know how to do a hard reset try that if that don't work then you should get a new network card or a wireless adapter and connect that way.14:48
wuqsorry, i have a sticky keyboard. it sucks, i spilled tea all over y good one14:48
ichatmagic hang on14:49
sukuyou sure you didnt spill it on the router or network card too?14:49
wuqok, i might hold off on hard reset because i need to find my router info.14:49

wuqlol!!! suku14:49
wuqno, it was on an external keyboard14:49

sukuusr13, he already tried that14:49
wuqto the router? i have tried that but i can try again14:50
wuqiver tried a few times though14:50
magik_It's gotta be the eth0 adapter giving the problems.14:50
wuqtell me this - if network card works fine without router, then it cant be a problem with network card right?14:50
usr13wuq: It may be that your network interface is defective.14:50
magik_the network card installed on the pc14:50
sukuwuq, the only thing i think is a last resort would be to do a factory reset on the router - if that doesnt work then it is possible it is a bad nic14:50
wuqaw : - /14:51
usr13I say it's a bad NIC14:51
wuqnot really worth investing in the pc, its so old....14:51
ichatwuq a last  time to did confirm your pc workin correctly on the wall  right?14:51

icerootwuq: i had a case where i was using a nic which was set to 1gbit/s and no other modes and the router (switch inside the router, could only handle 100mbit/s) that caused a defunctional network for me14:52

icerootichat: it was set in the bios, some strange propritary stuff14:54
wuqi dont really understand what your saying iceroot. can you spell out the steps i need to take to figure out what your saying and if it applies14:54
usr13iceroot: It works.  YOu don't need to set netmask14:54

icerootLambdaMutt_: alt + left-click, hold the mouse after that and move it with the mouse15:04

MonkeyDustLambdaMutt_  fastest, easiest and cleanest would be a fresh install -- backup first and consider creating a separate /home partition15:08
larstkhi all15:08
ichatLambdaMutt_,  - in other words  they advice you updating to  12.04 for a long term release or  12.10 for the latest and hotest15:09
KM0201the easiest thing to do (if you like gnome 2.x) would be to install ubuntu 12.04, then install mate desktop15:10
KM0201thats as close as you'll get to gnome 2.15:10

Can someone lend me a hand?15:45

ActionParsnipJhutchins_wk: I just use what I know works :-)15:45

derram001hello how do i chat16:36
TheLordOfTimeandrea__, otherwise i think > just overwrites16:36

jhutchins_wkLambdaMutt: How many years have you been on irc?16:36
raven_blami, with nvidia driver its the same freeze and i used a few kernels now16:36
ActionParsnipRaven_: have you tested RAM health?  You may also want to clean out your fans if the system is old-ish16:36
ActionParsnipAndreq__: >> appends16:36
wolf_shadowbut i'll have to install it from developers page then16:36

raven_ActionParsnip, the machine is cold enough and ram has 0 errors16:37
jhutchins_wkLambdaMutt: That's not what I asked, and I've still got you beat.16:37
blamiraven_: is it optimus setup or nvidia only?16:37
ActionParsnipCt529: what was it?16:37
ct529ActionParsnip: gvfs ....16:38
LambdaMuttjhutchins_wk, if you would like credentials, speak to the former North American VP of Dev for Ubuntu16:38
raven_blami, what do you mean exactly?16:38
ActionParsnipRaven_: when did you lsst test ram?16:38
ActionParsnipCt529? Nice16:38
jhutchins_wkLambdaMutt: My point is that only an idiot would judge anything by irc traffic.16:38
blamiraven_: do you have laptop with two video cards (nvidia + intel) or just nvidia only?16:38
raven_ActionParsnip, two days ago16:39

arunscapenow windows doesn't want to start and neither does the recovery environment.16:41
jhutchins_wkraven_: video ram corruption.  You said your ram was good - did you run memtest?16:41

LambdaMuttAwesome stuff.16:44
LambdaMuttI'm guessing you're talking about the 1st Gulf War?16:44
blamiraven_: that sounds alot like hardware problem16:44
jhutchins_wkLambdaMutt: So the fact that in spite of what noise there is on the channel, we manage to provide realtime support, often at a higher level than the paid support you get from RedHat is much more of an asset than the liability of inexperienced users giving bad advice.16:45

raven_blami, how to verify16:45
blamiraven_: does your laptop overheat?16:46
LambdaMuttPass on a message to him, will you? The acoustics in his studio still suck.16:46
blamiraven_: in case of my laptop it was sufficient to go into bios and wait to prove the error16:46
blamiraven_: basically if it happens before linux kernel is booted (e.g. in grub) it's very likely it has nothing to do with linux16:47

zwircCoul someone maby help me setting up my SSD and Raid 1 ? :D18:05
jrtapperszwirc, have you got multiple drives?18:05
rick_awhy not get Virtualbox? its great18:06
klixajrtappers live cd's can be run all by theselves without grub OR wubi18:06
lietuI can't seem to figure out which package I need in Ubuntu (server) 12.04 to get the CLI "mail" -command .. can anyone tell me?18:07
jrtappersklixa, no CD drive18:07
klixajrtappers oh so you mean iso's?18:07
jrtappersSo I would prefer to run the ISO from grub18:07
klixajrtappers virtualbox is probably the better route to take then, since you have no drive18:08
jrtappersPerformance impact?18:08
jrtappersIt's a weak netbook18:08
klixajrtappers then get a usb stick, and run iso's from it18:08
jrtappersI heard ISO's can be run from grub18:08
klixajrtappers you can write an iso to a usb stick..or even an sd card18:08
klixajrtappers perhaps iso's can br run virtually with grub, wubi or whatever, but i have NO clue how that works…sorry18:09
klixai personally use an asd card on my netbook… and then virtualbox on my laptop18:09

agliodbsjrtappers: *multiple*?18:12

yeatspurezen: I'm waiting too ;-)18:15

zwircfor example I want one user to use one disk, and take backups on another backup folder that is on the other disk18:21

b3njusr13: but the unpacked files are already in /usr19:11
blamiTAsn: and why would you do that? Not sure if 10.04 is LTS ...19:12
TAsnI'll ask at #ubuntu-motu19:12
b3njusr13: no they are not19:12
usr13b3nj: Nope19:12
k1lTAsn: but keep in mind, that ubuntu doesn take new relases into old versions (in general). so the new e17 will be included in the 13,04 ubuntu (if its not past the deadlines already)19:12
TAsnit's not a new release19:12
blamik1l: i think it is19:12
TAsnit's the only release19:12
TAsnthe previous ones were broken dev snapshots19:12

Letalisis there any information on the new ubuntu phones out there that isnt just an announcement? i was curios just how much of it is actually ubuntu and how much of it remains android.19:13
TAsnblami, sure19:13
NevinTex_Nick : I fixed the problem with installing Ubuntu. Curious if you want to know in case someone else may have the same problem.19:13
TAsnblami, that's why I said removed or upgraded. :)19:13
ania_hi please help i just remove tomuch by using sudo apt-get purge wine* ....all packaged with wine name .....and ive seen stuff from system needed purged ...how to reverse purge command??19:13
TAsnI think removing that would be just fine.19:13
TAsnblami, the thing is19:13
arshavinI can't get oxford oald 8 sound when i install it from linux binary but it works with wine'19:13
usr13b3nj: It's like I said, you have to manually move the file to the plugins directory.  /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/19:13
TAsnblami, people apt-get install e1719:13
blamiTAsn: you can always start account on launchpad, create PPA with latest packages for 10.4 and provide info about them on project homepage19:14
TAsnblami, and get a crappy piece of sw19:14
TAsnblami, already done.19:14
b3njusr13: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1496647/19:14
blamiTAsn: users then are supposed to add ppa and apt-get install e1719:14
TAsnblami, that's what *intelligent* users do19:14
TAsnbut others19:14
TAsnjust apt-get install e1719:14
TAsnand ditch it after a couple of minutes19:14
TAsnorr complain about it in our trac/support chans19:14
arshavinit complains about shockwave player in linux19:15
TAsnblami, that's why I'd like it removed, so at least people will be able to get the proper package without confusion.19:15
blamiTAsn: so close tickets redirecting those to tutorial19:15
k1lTAsn: http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/e17  see the maintainer part on the right.19:15
usr13b3nj: See?  You have  libflashplayer.so  and flashplugin-alternative.so  and flashplugin-alternative.so is a symlink to /etc/alternatives/mozilla-flashplugin19:15
TAsnk1l, MOTU19:15
arshavini don't think shockwave player has a linux client19:15
b3njusr13: so?19:15
usr13b3nj: From where you just now unpacked all the files do what I said.19:15
k1lTAsn: you emailed the email adress thats mentioned there?19:16
ania_anyone pleas19:16
usr13b3nj: sudo mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/19:16
b3njusr13: i have moved it19:16
TAsnk1l, not yet, trying #ubuntu-motu19:16
b3njusr13: already19:16

b3njusr13: already sent link19:17
TAsnk1l, ok, will do one of them.19:17
usr13b3nj: The date is Nov 28th?19:17
TAsnor both19:17
b3njusr13:  no19:17
usr13b3nj:  I don't think so.19:17
b3njusr13 http://paste.ubuntu.com/1496664/19:18
k1lTAsn: i would file a bug before. im pretty sure they will ask after your filed bug :)19:18
k1lTAsn: and since the package itselv comes from debian i would talk to debian, too :)19:18
TAsnit will be fixed in debian19:19
blamiI wanted to point out that it is imported packages19:19
TAsnit's already fixed in unstable19:19
usr13b3nj:  Well, you still didn't do it because we STILL see "Nov 28 00:03 libflashplayer.so"19:19
usr13b3nj: So, what's up?19:19
b3njusr13: wait19:19
ania_can you help me please?19:20
b3njusr13: dated nov 28 so what?19:20
usr13b3nj: Here's the deal.  You can either use /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so  or /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flashplugin-alternative.so19:21
usr13b3nj: (Because that is not today's date.)19:21
b3njusr13: why should it be today's date?19:21
usr13b3nj:  If /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so  is there, it will be used.19:21
blamiania_: let me see my crystal ball to find out whats your problem19:22
Muphridania_: I dont think you can remake the purge command19:22
usr13b3nj:  If you replace /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so  with the one you just downloaded, you will see the new date on it.19:22
Muphridyou can still reinstall them back using the same logic19:22
ania_how to undo purge .....it remove almost everything with wine* name19:22
b3njusr13: reallY?19:22
usr13b3nj: Or, if you delete /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so  /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flashplugin-alternative  will be used19:22
=== russell is now known as Guest16447
usr13b3nj: Yea really19:23
ania_blami: sudo apt-get purge wine* it remove me about 800 mb of system ....19:23
ania_and i found that on ask ubuntu page19:23
b3njusr13: when i unpack the archive the date on libflashplayer.so is nov 2819:23
DaemonicApathyIs it causing problems, ania_?19:23
usr13b3nj: If you botched up the command the first time, you'll need to unpack the file again.  tar xvf name.gz19:23
ania_ yes19:24
Muphridania_: such as?19:24
blamiania_: in /var/log/apt is file called history.log or history.log.gz1 ... they contain all operations done with apt19:24
blamiania_: just look what packages were removed and install them again19:24
b3njusr13: so i am sure that the date is not changed19:24
b3njusr13: when you move a file from one place to another19:25
usr13b3nj: ...downloading the file now...19:25
b3njusr13: what is it?19:25
TAsnanyhow, discussion moved to #ubuntu-motu thanks19:26
Muphridania_: installing ubuntu-desktop back should get the important parts again19:26
usr13b3nj: I guess.  Try it and see if it works then.19:27
usr13b3nj: That's  weird.19:27
b3njusr13: should i reboot my machine?19:27
=== root is now known as Guest37711
usr13b3nj: No  Reboot will not do anything.  Restart firefox19:28
b3njusr13: should add-ons manager in firefox show shockwave flash?19:29
ania_Muphrid: ubuntu-destop what else?19:29
usr13b3nj: Should19:29
b3njusr13: still no sound19:30
absurdum_22_34I am trying to connect to a server using ubuntu server 12.04 through vnc.  What kind of port forwarding is required for this?  I have port 22 and port 80 forwarded to this machine already, are there any more?19:30
Muphridania_: that should be the base for a working-again system, the rest is up to you if you want to reinstall19:30
usr13b3nj: At this point you'll need to just experiment.  sudo rm /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flashplugin-alternative.so19:31
usr13b3nj: Restart firefox and see.19:31
ania_ok thx.....the should put advice to remove on ask ubuntu19:32
Muphridania_: xchat, gnome-shell, gnome-panel and gnome-tweak-tool are not in that package if you want to install them again19:32
usr13b3nj: Did you try it?19:33
b3njusr13: i renamed flash-plugin alternative to .bak19:34
usr13b3nj: Why?19:34
usr13b3nj: It's just a symlink.19:34
usr13b3nj: you simply replace it19:34
usr13b3nj:  ln -sf /etc/alternatives/mozilla-flashplugin/flashplugin-alternative.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/19:35
b3njusr13: now i have removed it19:35

usr13b3nj: I concede19:43
Muphridtheseb: you mean the global menu, or the window snap?19:44
usr13b3nj: "cannot access"  What was that?19:44
EntropyAnnVen0m: haven't tried those. I just used wubi since the ubuntu website provided it, figured it would be most stable install tool19:45
thesebMuphrid: global menu seems to hide very top of my apps19:45
b3njusr13: ls: cannot access /etc/alternatives/mozilla-flash...... Not a directory19:45
ven0mI've tried wubi a couple of times. Never worked for me. not sure if it's just me though19:45
EntropyAnnalso with a laptop?19:46
Muphridtheseb: the toolbar menu is integrated in the top panel, you have to hover it to show, there is package which does that although i dont remember the exact name19:46
usr13b3nj: Use the package manager and try again.  But I don't know.  I think sometimes, when you install chrome, it breaks firefox/flashplayer19:46
thesebMuphrid: i noticed CCSM has a "place windows" feature..do you know what that is? maybe if i turned that off?19:47
troybiwho is familiar with asm 8086?19:47

Muphridtheseb: that should do it19:50
usr13b3nj: You might try that. Other than that, I don't  know.  (I use 32bit.)19:50
usr13b3nj: I suppose you could install firefox 32bit version  and the 32bit adobe flashplayer.19:51
