mesquka1sw: if you want to use 12.10, try this: http://www.traffictool.net/vmware/ubuntu1210t.zip00:01
mesquka1sw: but, 12.10 runs a bit slow in VMware00:02
BlackWebI'm running Ubuntu 12.04 Server, & grub isnt automatically booting the selection, Which would be that big of a deal but I only have power, & Network cord attached to server, I've already tweaked with /etc/default/grub so that grub would have a hidden time out, But it seems that 50% of the time it still does that, Any Solutions? Or is 12.04 Not as Good?00:02
swmesquka1: 12.04 is Gnome?00:02
k1lHeLLy: i dont know which program you use and where the data is stored.00:03
trendynickI alt-tabbed a lot in my listed open apps and sometimes they appear (still nothing in sidebar and not listed in alt-tab)00:03
mesquka1sw: 12.04 is unity00:03
swmesquka1: So what would make 12.10 slower than 12.04?00:03
mesquka1sw: or what you could do is use 12.10 and install gnome00:03
HeLLyk1l: I am just using the stock network tools and I am on a 4G connection to :-)00:04
mesquka1sw: 12.04 has gnome00:04
mesquka1sw: whereas 12.10 locks you in unity00:04
bekks12.04 has Unity, too.00:04
swbekks: 00:03 < mesquka1> sw: 12.04 is unity00:04
dfgashow does it lock you into unity?00:04
swmesquka1: It's not possible to bin unity in 12.10? Wow. I'll try 12.04 and see if that works ok on VMware then.00:05
mesquka1sw: you could manually install gnome, but it doesn't come pre-installed00:05
dfgasso you are not locked into unity then00:05
swdfgas: I think that mesquka1 meant is that 12.04 has both as a choice, 12.10 doesn't, natively.00:06
dfgasahh, ok00:06

BlackWebAnyone know how to FORCE grub to load the Selection within the boot loader?00:07
BlackWebUbuntu 12.04 Server, Half of the time It just Hangs out on the Boot Menu & never Loads its00:08
stercorWhat's a GPT partition table and do I want it?  Do I even want LVM?00:08
linxehstercor: maybe.00:08
TzunamiiBlackWeb: Tried to force the selection via the config-file and rewrite grub?00:09
dr_willisleave lvm alone then. ;-)00:09
linxehstercor: GPT will become more common (if you have a Mac you want it). LVM, up to you. it makes it trivial to extend volumes later over multiple disks if you need to00:09
stercorlinxeh: What are the considerations?00:09

KsMBlackWeb: I think you can change /etc/default/grub, it should be the first 2 lines. then run `sudo update-grub`00:09
BlackWebI've tweaked with /etc/default/grub  - So that there was a timeout and I ran grub update and that still didnt seem to fix problem00:10
linxehstercor: if you are new to this all, and dont know any better (and arent on a Mac) dont use GPT and dont use LVM.00:10
=== seednode- is now known as seednode
linxehstercor: you will likely reinstall anyway before it becomes an issue for you (and there are other ways round most issues anyway)00:10
stercorJordan_U: Good show!00:10
swWhat's the most commonly used project/task management application for Linux?00:10
BlackWebIts like it'll load 50% of the time but the rest its like good luck00:10
KsMBlackWeb: also, you could check out kexec, which allows you to switch kernels/reboot without having to even see grub. it just loads the kernel into the memory and continues from there00:11
rypervenchesw: The kernel?00:11
stercorlinxeh: I'm re-installing now.00:11
swrypervenche: What?00:11
BlackWebkexec  so thats a package I need to install?00:11
rypervencheOh, I misread your question. Sorry.00:11
Jordan_UBlackWeb: The problem is that /etc/init.d/grub-common isn't being run at boot for some reason, and so the recordfail flag isn't being cleared (which would normally indicate a failed boot).00:12
mesquka1sw: http://www.dotproject.net/ prbably00:12

swJeez, a couple of years back you'd have Ubuntu downloaded and running in a VM within 5 minutes.00:12
swmesquka1: Yes.00:12
molqra box gets its ip via DHCP ... could i write a script that would scp a file containing the ip to a remote box on startup?00:12
stercorlinxeh: Take the defaults?00:12
BlackWebJordan_U   is there a fix I can do?00:12
mesquka1sw: haha, I use virtualbox, so I can't realy help you any further, sorry00:13
mesquka1"Jeez, a couple of years back you'd have Ubuntu downloaded and running in a VM within 5 minutes." agreed00:13
Jordan_UBlackWeb: I would recommend adding "timeout=5" (without the quotes) to /etc/grub.d/40_custom (on a new line at the end). Then run "sudo update-grub". That will override the timeout from /etc/default/grub, and Ubuntu's code that disables timeout after a failed boot, and make grub have exactly a 5 second timeout no matter what.00:13
linxehstercor: defaults are often a good choice (I go with defaults on Ubuntu installs generally) - you can always re-do it later. most of my machines are VMs with all the data on a NAS though, so its a bit easier for me00:13
stercorlinxeh: It'll wipe the disk anyway, so what's the best option?00:14
stercorlinxeh: That's my estimate. They know a whole lot more than I do...00:14
BlackWebAlright I'll try that, cause Ya right now I have the timeout in /etc/default/grub  set to 1 second but I'll give your way a try and see if I still run into the same problem00:15
BlackWebThanks for the Help :)00:15
linxehstercor: re GPT, it makes little difference. LVM is up to you - it is a bit harder to get your head around, but its a staple of bigger linux installations (ie most big systems use it)00:15
mesquka1sw: well, im going afk for awhile00:15
linxehstercor: I use LVM, but dont use GPT at this stage00:15
swmesquka1: Thanks a lot, appreciated.00:16
mesquka1well, maybe not, ill stay awhile00:16

MeanEYEcodephobic: first tell me how did you install.00:30
codephobicI've also got the JDK installed, as I'm using eclipse to learn java, so I have a working java setup on my machine, just not for the browsers.00:31
codephobicI unpacked the tar and placed it in /usr/lib/jre...00:31
MeanEYEcodephobic: Ah, that seems to be the problem.00:32
codephobicthat's what they instruct.00:32
MeanEYEcodephobic: For JRE yes. But plugins are located in firefox directory. My advice, use this: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/01/install-oracle-java-jdk-7-in-ubuntu-via.html00:32
codephobicwell, I'll give that a go.00:33
MeanEYEcodephobic: that works 100%00:33
codephobicthe only reason I went to download the jre was because the java tutorial webpage sent me there.00:33
MeanEYEcodephobic: Yeah, well Oracle is not really good at writing documentation.00:33
MeanEYEcodephobic: This PPA has 1.6, 1.7 and 1.8.00:33

iBurleyI have a rather odd question, and it may actually be a TeamSpeak issue, not a Linux issue00:35
MeanEYEiBurley: please ask, don't ask about asking.00:36
jelllowGames keep grabbing my keyboard and when they crash I have no way to recover other than reboot , Is there anyway I can stop games stealing keyboard input from X11 ?00:36
iBurleyAlright, so my side mouse buttons work for going forward and back in my browser, but I can't set them as push to talk in TS3 on Ubuntu, but they work just fine on my Win7 partition00:36
MeanEYEiBurley: You probably need to bind them in your games. Generally speaking there's nothing preventing them from working. So if it doesn't work, then yes, issue is with TeamSpeak.00:37
MeanEYEjelllow: Hm, depends on a game and input library in question. Linux kernel has SysReq, so that might help you avoid restarting.00:38
dalsgaardDoes anyone have experience with using Adobe Photoshop in Ubuntu?00:38
codephobicMeanEYE, thanks again! that was quick and painless!!00:38
MeanEYEiBurley: You might want to ask on askubuntu.com or forums if you don't find solution. But in my opinion it's best to contact developers. Often things like this sound harmless but are bugs.00:38
MeanEYEcodephobic: You are welcome. Glad it works. :)00:39
MeanEYEdalsgaard: Through Wine?00:39
dalsgaardAye. I've heard that it's really hard to do00:39
dalsgaardNot looking to do it right now, but I'd just like the lay of the land. :)00:40
jelllowMeanEYE: Is SysReq ctrl-alt + f1 keys that drop you in tty ?00:40
MeanEYEdalsgaard: Depending on version. You can see appdb.winehq.org for referrence. There are a lot of people testing that. Personally I don't use it but I was able to make CS2 work without a problem.00:40
dalsgaardI see, thanks.00:40
MeanEYEjelllow: No. Those are just terminals. Check u00:40
MeanEYEjelllow: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key00:41
MeanEYEjelllow: basically it enables you to issue commands directly to linux kernel.00:42
jelllowMeanEYE: I've used them once before I think there is one that causes a kernel panic :P00:44
MeanEYEWell, doubt it causes panic. But it can do a lot fo things from force OOM killer to restart of graphical environment.00:44

BrinsonNetworking question for anyone out there who might can help me...my mom has satelite internet and the networking cable has been severed. Going to go out and try to fix it tomorrow. I've got a crimper but am going to need to pick up RJ45 connectors. No idea if the cable is cat5, cat5e, or cat6, will I need to buy specific RJ45 connectors or are they cross-compatible?00:46
=== nexus is now known as Guest45869
MeanEYEsevenforall: It shouldn't do that. If it's working something, leave it alone and it should get back. If it doesn't you might want to report a bug to gimp developer team.00:46
joeb3_Brinson, It's a standard ethernet cable. nothing special.00:47
MeanEYEBrinson: difference in cables is only in quality. CAT6 connectors have usually some metal (not only plastic). CAT6 cable has thicker wires.00:47
MeanEYEBrinson: So if you have cat6 cable, you'll probably need a bit different connector. But if you manage to squeze wires in, everything will work just normally.00:48
BrinsonIf I buy the cat6 ones there should be enough room for cat5 and cat5e in case its those, then?00:49
MeanEYEBrinson: yes.00:49
MeanEYEBut connectors are cheap. And you only need one? So it's not a big investment.00:49
Brinsonshe lives like an hour from the closest store that sells them though so didn't want to get out there with one that wouldn't work.00:50
pppingmeif you terminate a cat5 connector or jack onto cat6 cabling, you've downgraded the whole thing to a cat5 install.00:50
MeanEYEThat's the difference between cables.00:50
MeanEYECat6 has plastic inside.00:50

ErdMutterI am looking for ways to improve security on Ubuntu 12.04. I have ufw setup, but I was wondering if anyone had some other suggestions xD00:52
MeanEYEsevenforall: In that case you should contact Gimp developers. And see what they have to say about it. It's not an OS issue.00:52
MeanEYEErdMutter: Don't run scripts you download online. :D00:52
MeanEYEErdMutter: that was a joke. :D :P In case I wasn't obvious. Do you have any reasont o be concerned about security.00:53

ErdMutterMeanEYE, and I like to keep things as secure as possible xD ... not a bad habit to be in lol00:54
dr_willisread up on security basics and fundamentals. ;)00:54
dr_willisufw may or may not make you any more secure. it depends on your setup00:55
MeanEYEErdMutter: It's not, but considering Ubuntu doesn't have open ports by default and you are probably behind a router. Chances of someone doing somethign to your computer without having physical access are pretty slim.00:55
ErdMutterok :) I guess I will continue reading more wiki articles on it then :D00:56

acovrigI have ubuntu 12 in a partition, can I resize it,add a new one setup lvm in the new partition, then move my current install into the lvm, then resize the lvm partition to the entire drive?02:01
nikiHi MeanEYE, are you still available02:01
nikimy computer just shutdown by itself, not a powercut or anything02:02
MeanEYEniki: Yeah, for what? :D02:02
MeanEYEniki: Did you do a memory test?02:02
nikii couldnt computer shutdown by itself for no apparent reason02:02
El-E-Va-Tionthx, I figured it out anyway, just needed gksudo instead of sudo02:02
El-E-Va-Tionpeace :) g'luck02:02
nikiwhat was the command again that i required02:02
MeanEYEacovrig: Yes. It's not as simple as it sounds but it's possible. You can only resize if you have free space. Just so you know.02:02
MeanEYEniki: For memory test?02:02
nikithink it was or something to do with driver02:03
MeanEYEniki: Sorry, I don't remember problems for long. So if you don't mind reminding me.02:03

MeanEYEniki: Ahh, gavin?02:04
nikiMeanEYE: I just installed Ubuntu and it keeps crashing02:04
nikiMeanEYE: yea thats me02:04
MeanEYEOkay, :D02:04
MeanEYEniki: So command was "lspci | grep VGA"02:04
MeanEYEniki: that will list only display adapters.02:05
MeanEYEacovrig: I can't really guide you step by step as that's quite a complex problem to solve. GPartEd is your friend in this case. Also you need to run it from live session, as you can't resize mounted partitions.02:05
nikiMeanEYE: here is what it says in the terminal lspci | grep VGA02:06
niki00:0d.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] (rev a2)02:06
MeanEYEniki: So you have nVidia graphics card. 6150. Did you install drivers?02:06
nikiinstall drivers? you mean the motherboard?02:07
MeanEYEniki: No, nVidia proprietary drivers. I guess you didn't.02:07
nikiI don't know how to do that02:07
nikiare you able to guide me through?02:07
MeanEYEniki: Would you like to install them or stick with open source drivers?02:07
MeanEYEniki: Am pretty sure drivers are the problem here.02:08
nikiwhichever is the easiest?02:08
MeanEYEniki: Drivers are not hard to install. And process can be reverted.02:08
nikiwhere can I get the drivers for it02:08
MeanEYEniki: to install use this command: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settings02:08
MeanEYEniki: Drivers are in Ubuntu repositories. :) So no need for finding them. Just one command away.02:09
acovrigMeanEYE: Hows this sound? sda1 is /, resize sda1, create sda2 (ext4?) run pvcreate; vgcreate; lvcreate; dd sda1 >(the logical volume) in sda2; make sda1 /boot and srink it.02:09

MeanEYEacovrig: Well it looks logical, but I have really limited experience with LVM. Am not sure I shoudl be the one giving you advices.02:11
nikiMeanEYE: I think it has finished installing02:11
nikiMeanEYE: what do i do next?02:11
Muphridniki: reboot02:11
acovrigMeanEYE: I'm in a similar boat, but am told it's the best way to setup a xen guest.02:11

nikiI'll reboot now and see how it goes02:12
nikitalk in a bit02:12
MeanEYEniki: That was suspiciously fast.02:12
MeanEYEacovrig: Am not sure what's the state of Xen. Any reason to prefer it over kvm?02:12
acovrigMeanEYE: can kvm do directs 3d in win7 (I'm new to virtuelization: I got hardware that supports it last wk)?02:14
MeanEYEacovrig: Hm. You want to play games from VM?02:15
acovrigI'm more of a programmer, but would like to have the option02:15
gavin__hi MeanEYE: are you there?02:15
MeanEYEacovrig: Am not sure that's a good idea. To my knowledge none of the virtualization solutions provide 3D acceleration. At least not for gaming. They usually emulate generic display adapter. Games would require direct memory access and that's something no OS would expose to a client OS.02:16
MeanEYEgavin__: Yes.02:16
gavin__MeanEYE: the taskbar has stopped crashing now and same with the icons02:17
gavin__don't know if it will crash in the future02:17
gavin__but I think that sorted the issue out02:17
MeanEYEgavin__: Glad it solved your problem. I doubt it will crash in the future.02:17

OmegaXI need to record my audio output into a ogg or mp3 file, how do i do this?02:19
=== OmegaX is now known as ElectricPrism
MeanEYEacovrig: Tough problem. To be honest am not sure how good Xen is for gaming.02:19
acovrigMeanEYE:  yea, as far as I've seen, xen is perfect for this, but the cpu has to support IOMMU and mine doesn't, so it's probably the same as the others02:21
MeanEYEacovrig: Quick search shows there might be something to it. But I've never played with it.02:21
MeanEYEMay I ask which games? :D02:21
acovrigMeanEYE: xen or kvm?02:21
acovrigminecraft, portal02:21
ElectricPrismCan I pipe my audio output to an in channel so I can record it in Audacity?02:22
MeanEYEMinecraft is Linux native, and Portal 2 is comming to linux in less than a month.02:22
MeanEYEacovrig: Portal one is Wine compatible, because Valve is not a douche.02:22
MeanEYEElectricPrism: Linux is quite flexible with sound, but for anything more exotic than standard use I'd suggest looking at Jack. That's audio daemon built for that stuff.02:23
acovrigI forgot about wine, last time I used it it was on a *small* sys so it wouldn't work so I guess I blamed wine when it was probably the sys specs.02:23
MeanEYEAnd that's pretty much all I can help with :D audio on Linux. :P02:23
BWMerlinI have been told that I need to "go to synaptic and fix broken drivers" but I don't actually know how to do that once I am in synaptic02:23
cfhowlettElectricPrism: yes ... jack would be the cure, but I don't know how to configure what you want.02:23

=== g_byers[Away] is now known as g_byers
ElectricPrismMeanEYE: Do you know of any other games coming to linux soon? I've been dying for some stuff to buy on steam02:24
MeanEYEBWMerlin: You can do it from command line. No need for synaptic. But in Synaptic you have "Fix broken packages' item somewhere in menu.02:24
acovrigyea, also, someone mentioned wine for mac, afaik: there is no 'wine' for mac, but there is a commercial 'version' called crossover, that sound right?02:24
MeanEYEElectricPrism: Steam is public beta now. I have some 40ish games on there. :D02:24
MeanEYEElectricPrism: TF2 is out, and works. That means Source engine is ported. So, we can expect Left 4 Dead (that already works but is still being tested), portal, counter strike and DotA 2.02:25
BWMerlinMeanEYE: I tried that but it didn't appear to work, I am trying to install  glx-alternative-nvidia but when I do I get the following error message "The following packages have unmet dependencies: glx-alternative-nvidia : Depends: glx-diversions (= 0.2.2) Depends: glx-alternative-mesa E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages."02:25
MeanEYEElectricPrism: Serious Sam is out, and bunch of indie games. Trine is always nice to play. Bastion <3... hm what else. Torchlight. Legend of Grimrock <3 ah, so much fun.02:26

MeanEYEElectricPrism: Legend of Grimrock is a oldschool dungeon crawler with modern graphics. Really good RPG. But only if youa re into that stuff.02:28
MeanEYEBWMerlin: I would expect that as well. Can you run this command: sudo apt-get install -f02:28
MeanEYEacovrig: Hm, well Crossover is commercial, but Wine works good. Especially with games that have been developed by companies who know what they are doing.02:29

goddardi need to mount a couple partitions03:42
goddardwhats the easiest way to do that?03:42
MeanEYEgoddard: Automount on startup or manually?03:42
goddardMeanEYE: i think i want to just manually mount it03:43
MeanEYEgoddard: In that case you use mount command.03:43
goddardjust "mount /dev/sdd2" ?03:44
MeanEYEgoddard: If /dev/sdd2 is in fstab.03:44
goddardMeanEYE: whats fstab?03:45
MeanEYEgoddard: if it's not it's like this: mount -t type /dev/sdd2 /target/directory03:45
MeanEYEgoddard: fstab is a list mounts with options. Helps when you want to mount same thing many times.03:45
goddardMeanEYE: oh ok where do I find out if it is in fstab?03:46
MeanEYEgoddard: fstab is a simple file located in /etc/fstab03:46
MeanEYEgoddard: so you can "cat /etc/fstab"03:46
goddardoh doesn't look like it is in fstab03:47
goddardfstab is for my internal disk drives?03:47
MeanEYEgoddard: It's used so you don't have to retype everything all the time.03:47
MeanEYEgoddard: Also, things in there can be set to be auto-mounted.03:48
MeanEYEgoddard: So if you want to mount something it doesn't need to be there. It's just a convenience.03:49
goddardMeanEYE: ahh ok03:49
MeanEYELike a convenience. It does have a purpose. :D03:49
MeanEYEgoddard: So which filesystem is that partition?03:49
goddardMeanEYE: it is ext4 i think03:50
goddardone is linux one is extended and the other is linux lvm03:50
goddardi can amount the entire disk or only one partition?03:51
goddardthat is from sudo fdisk -l03:51
MeanEYEgoddard: Linux always mounts by partition. So you can moutn the whole disk by mounting each.03:51
goddardMeanEYE: ahh ok03:51
goddardMeanEYE: if i write a shell script i can just have all these auto mounted by disk identifier?03:52
MeanEYEgoddard: If you add partition in fstab, you can have it automounted without script.03:52

goddardMeanEYE: how can i figure out what type of file system it is exactly ?04:00
goddardMeanEYE: it just says extended04:00
MeanEYEgoddard: That's a partition type. They can be primary or extended.04:00

Kaligaryoh >_< Yea that I meant sorry04:58
KaligaryI've looked around online, but couldn't find any answers04:58
KaligaryCould it be that I'm using an older version?04:59
cfhowlettKaligary: ok.  i'm familiar with lmms somewhat but what is perspective?04:59
cfhowlettKaligary: and what version are you running?04:59
KaligaryIt's a game, they made a build of it for linux and hold on I think it's 10.0.204:59
cfhowlettKaligary: confirm: lmms = linux multimedia studio?05:00
Kaligarysorry it's 10.04 that I'm running05:00
KaligaryI picked it cause if I;m not mistaking it's the last version running gnome05:01

subcoolhow do i fix it05:02
KaligarySooo... I have to have 12.04 or later for it to run?05:02
cfhowlettKaligary: does perspective require lmms?05:02
KaligaryNegative, it is it's own software05:02
Ben64Kaligary: try running lmms from the terminal05:03
cfhowlettKaligary: ok and you need lmms for ... what then?05:03

KaligaryAlso ben I tried via terminal05:05
Kaligaryno good05:05
cfhowlettKaligary: no.  take a look for yourself at www.ubuntustudio.com05:05
Ben64"no good" doesn't really describe anything05:05
Kaligaryoh ok.05:05
cfhowlettKaligary: also see #ubuntustudio for general support05:06
KaligaryIt brings up a window for it then terminates the window with out authorization05:06
KaligaryOk thanks!05:06
cfhowlettKaligary: note: US 12.04 doesn't ship with LMMS as the new lowlatency kernel is installed by default for US05:06

zwircDo i need to install any package to use Ajax in php? etc?05:08
cfhowlettKaligary: but you might wish to try before you buy.  test it out in virtual box.  You've got a few more months of support left on 10.04 ...05:08
goddardI have a usb 3.0 external drive and it isn't recognized when I plug it into my USB 3 port only USB 2 port05:09
KaligaryAre you talking about ubuntu 10.04? I burnt a live cd and made it my default05:09
cfhowlettKaligary: no I was talking about 12.04 ...05:09
acovrigI copied it with gparted (booted from usb), then grub-install and marked the partition bootable, when it boots, I get a mount error for / and the boot fails, why?05:09
c00keeanyone install chrubuntu on chromebook05:09
KaligaryWhat happens after support runs out?05:09
zwircDo i need to install any package to use Ajax in php? etc? (ubuntu 12.04 LTS)05:09
cfhowlettKaligary: no more updates ...05:10
michael_2zwirc: Package?  You need an apache server to develop and test on your computer.  But AJAX is just JavaScript.05:10
KaligaryI see..05:10
cfhowlettKaligary: you can run your software, but NO updates means no updates ... including security updates ...05:10
zwircmichael_2 strange, some scrips do not work after i moved server and installed lamp05:11
zwircdoes i need any lib packages or something?=05:11
michael_2zwirc: No.  LAMP is all you need.05:11
cfhowlettKaligary: for a musician, US is very sweet ... a nice collection of multimedia and production tools.  Ardour is similar to FL05:11
zwircmichael_2 humm, strange that its not working then o.O05:12
KaligaryI guess I'll have to swap over to unbuntu 12.04 regardless. Also thanks I'll check that out05:12
cfhowlettKaligary: last thought.  do a clean install not a distro upgrade.05:12
michael_2zwirc: Does any PHP code work for you?05:12
cfhowlettKaligary: I love US.  Ask me if you need help with the basics05:12
KaligaryAlright, will do. Thanks for all your help. And I'll be sure to do that05:12
cfhowlettKaligary: have fun, be safe.05:13
michael_2zwirc: Have you tried testing your AJAX in multiple browsers?  Certain browsers are pickier than others when it comes to coding conventions.05:13
KaligaryYou to brother05:13
michael_2zwirc: PHP is server-depending...Meaning you need a LAMP server or something like that.  But the JavaScript part is completely dependent on the web browser.05:14
Martijn-NLHi zwirc - i think your website url has been changed. Maybe the virtualhost settings in your Apache2 config are different. For example your website references to http://www.example.com and in your config stays http://example.com05:15
goddardI have a usb 3.0 external drive and it isn't recognized when I plug it into my USB 3 port only USB 2 port05:15
zwircworked earlier, but sure will try05:16
Martijn-NLMy advice: use the Firebug extension on Firefox or Fiddler to detect dead ajax links on your website.05:17
Martijn-NLAnother opportunity is that not all javascript files are copied to the new server...05:19
acovrigmountall: Filesystem could not be mounted: / at boot05:20
zwircmichael_2: the page does not update (like javascript missing something)05:21

zwircon prev page it did update automatic05:21
zwircgoddard: think i miss one package for my web server05:21
Martijn-NLDid you read my advice, zwirc?05:21
zwircsorry Martijn, testing now05:23
goddardzwirc: what is the error message or what isn't working05:23
zwircajax script that updates mysql tables05:23
goddardajax updates mysql itself?05:24
goddardor with php or something?05:24
Martijn-NLHe has problems with his website on a new installed / configured server, especially making AJAX-calls. I think: incorrect virtualhost settings, some files are not copied?05:25
michael_2zwirc: Do you keep your MySQL database access constants (login name, password, etc.) in a separate file?  If so, was the file successfully copied to the new server and in the right location?05:26
zwircgoddard php ye05:27
zwircajax is just refreshing page using javascript05:27
zwircmichael_2 yes it is, and updated info05:27
Martijn-NLWith the Firebug extension on Firefox you  can detect a lot of problems with websites (clientside), but you can also recognise server problems - like missing files...05:27
alex20032Hi, when we invoke python, which version is it?05:28
alex20032I mean, the default python in ubuntu 12.1005:28
michael_2alex: 3.2 I think05:30
Muphridpython --version05:30
Muphridwill tell you05:30
alex20032well, its because currently i dont have a linux box near me05:31
alex20032And i was wondering which distro made the big switch05:31
Martijn-NLBy missing PHP files PHP gives a clear error message (if error reporting is on) : error_reporting(E_ALL)05:31
Muphridquantal (python): interactive high-level object-oriented language (default version)            2.7.3-0ubuntu7: amd64 i38605:31
alex20032Currently, i know that arch is officially using python 3.x as their default, #!bin/python pointing to python 305:31
fr33zrhyt3manyone know how to run game via wine on ubuntu 12.1005:32
alex20032quantal is 12.10?05:32
michael_2alex: I'm pretty sure that Python 3.2 is included with 12.10.  But I can't promise that I'm right lol.05:32
ubottufr33zrhyt3m:: WINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu05:32
Muphridit is included05:32
Muphridbut you have to specify the version to invoke it05:32
alex20032well, i was not asking if included, but if default05:32
michael_2alex: Just use a ln command and set the default to what you want05:32
alex20032anyway, im sure in the next version (or the version after the next) will be 305:33
Muphridthey still have apps to port before making it default05:33
alex20032no, changing the symlink will break lot of script if its not using 3.x as default05:33
michael_2alex: what's the difference between typing 'python' and 'python3.2' besides the three extra keystrokes?05:35
zwircHow to use the firebug o.O05:36
michael_2alex: Furthermore, you don't have to change the link.  Create a link to 3.2 in your development directory that is outside BASH's PATH variable.05:36
michael_2zwirc: Firebug is just a Firefox extension.  Just download it from their extensions site.05:37
michael_2zwirc: It's a good development resource.05:37

zwircis that standard?05:38
michael_2zwirc: if you use JQuery on your pages, you will need to import it on every page.05:38

islanbut this download manager is kinda nifty05:41
michael_2zwirc: what extensions are you referring to?05:42
Martijn-NLAnother opportunity is to edit your PHP file and add the following command in the first line: error_reporting(E_ALL);05:42
cfhowlettLocalization query: during installation, update files are sourced from the main ubuntu site, not the local mirrors.  Can the be set to local mirrors prior to installation?05:42

michael_2Kirax: Uggg...Don't say LVM.  I'm still pissed over choosing a LVM filesystem.05:50
arrrghhhlimikael, that's what lvm is05:50
arrrghhhmichael_2, I don't even want to know...05:51
nocturnal_because i cant find the folder now05:51
arrrghhhnvm I don't want to risk it.05:51
limikaelyes i saw that sorry…05:51
michael_2arrrghhh: Nothing too dramatic lol.  I just REALLY wanted to install ElementaryOS Luna today and it doesn't support LVM yet.  :P05:51
michael_2And I wasn't about to wipe my Ubuntu partition for a beta linux distro lol05:52
Hwkillermichael_2: if it uses up to date kernel and kernel utils, it supports LVM; you'd have to do it manually, but you could do it05:53
arrrghhhuhm... this is bad.  it looks like the ubuntu installer changed all my disk types from ext4 to lvm...05:53
KiraxOh LVM is cool! Learnt something new already lol05:53
arrrghhhI didn't "finish" any of these changes...05:53
kslateris there a way in Settings->Sound to control which application is at the top of the list in the indicator for the top panel?05:54
nocturnal_if i run 'mv [folder name] /' does that move that folder to the root?05:54
arrrghhhnocturnal_, yes05:54
michael_2Hwkiller: I wasn't able to find any options in the installer that would allow me to be selective of what part of the partition I installed to.  It seemed to only want to allow me to install to my full sda2 partition.05:54
Kiraxnocturnal_ don't forget the sudo infront of mv.05:54
Vencentpreced sudo05:54
nocturnal_arrrghhh, Kirax: i did and now for some reason i have lost the file05:55
nocturnal_err folder05:55
spobatIs there an option for moving one window to another desktop (quickly) ?05:55
arrrghhhnocturnal_, why are you moving anything to /?05:55
michael_2spobat: Yes.  Hold in the super key (in unity) to get a reference chart of the commands.05:56
kslaterI'd like to know if I can control spotify with my bluetooth headphones (Nokia BH-905i), specifically next track. Unfortunately Rhythmbox is at the top of the list and takes the input first.05:56
nocturnal_arrrghhh: i was in a hurry one day and was typing out a path to move the folder and i realized i was running late so i just moved it to / for later and i came back and cant find it05:56
spobatmichael_2, what is the "super key" ?05:56
michael_2spobat: the windows key.05:56
michael_2spobat: Linux calls it the super key05:57

topper4125My superkey no longer has a win logo on it, replaced it with a penguin05:57

spobatyeah, thank you05:58
cfhowlett"powered by ubuntu" ... system 76 IIRC05:58
nocturnal_arrrghhh: yes. both for the folder name and for .jpg which was the filetype of the files inside the folder05:58
kslaterI gave a musician a Think Geek monkey sticker the other day. Maybe someone will give me a sticker in return05:58
kslaterPlan 9 would be a sweet choice, just for the arcaneness of it05:58
arrrghhhnocturnal_, I don't know what to tell you.  look at your bash_history05:58
arrrghhhperhaps you mv'd it to /dev/null05:59
arrrghhhso the ubuntu installer flipped all the flags on my hdd's from ext4 to lvm...05:59
arrrghhhno mkfs was sent I don't think... can I just change the flags back and be OK?06:00
Kiraxkslater, I have this awesome sticker I was saving for a new laptop. Its a monkey "downloading" to a toilet ^_^06:01
michael_2arrrghhh: Any particular reason you don't want a LVM?06:01
arrrghhhmichael_2, I do.  But I have disks that are already formatted ext4 and now I'm worried my data is fubar...06:01
kslaterlvm is bad-juju06:01
kslaterlose 1 of the physical partitions in the lvm and you're hosed.06:02
arrrghhhkslater, that's nice...06:02
KiraxI just learned about lvm recently, any reason why you consider it 'bad-juju' kaslater?06:02
dr_willisweird that it changed their type to lvm06:02
arrrghhhdr_willis, pretty sure it was my user error06:02
dr_willisbiggest danger to a system is the end user. ;)06:03
michael_2arrrghhh: Don't feel so bad...Ubuntu does everything it can to coerce you into use LVM06:03
dr_williscant say ive ever noticed it trying to get me to use lvm.06:03
arrrghhhdr_willis, I read a warning message the wrong way... derp.06:03
kslaterI used to think it was the cat's pajamas, but the fatal flaw is that sure-to-be-encountered condition where you lose a part of the logical volume.06:03
dr_willisbut i tend to partiton first.06:03
arrrghhhscrew it.  i'm just going to fdisk and change the flags06:04
arrrghhhi'm pretty sure that's all it's done...06:04
michael_2dr_willis: If you partition first then you'll be ok.  If you use the Ubuntu installer to partition...Those sneaky b'tards hide LVM in the filesystem type06:04
dr_willissant say ive ever noticed the auto partioned doing more then a / on  primary and swap on a logical06:05

AvernaHi, I'm trying to update java on ubuntu 10.04. there are 2 listings for canonical in ect/apt/sources. does that seem right?06:19
arrrghhhmichael_2, yea, I don't understand what the installer did... oy.06:19
michael_2arrrghhh: I suppose you could create a tarball of your system, wipe, repartition, then extract the tarball...06:20
Kiraxarrrghhh my understanding is that once a file type is selected for a drive, only a reformat will change it. (I have limited knowledge on the subject though)06:20
KiraxAverna, have you tried getting it directly from the java creators site?06:21
arrrghhhwow... it didn't format to lvm.06:21
AvernaKirax yes, it seems like I have two copies of java 7. I want the most recent version so I can download minecraft06:21
michael_2Averna: I have two canonical sources as well06:22
Avernamichael_2 ok that's good. so I guess I can move to the next step. I am using a ghacks directions site06:23

AvernaE: Unable to lock the list directory06:25
arrrghhhmichael_2, I don't get what you mean... make a tarball of what?  The data should still be on the drives, I assume... They're just trapped in this LVM thing?  Oy.... what the heck have I done.06:26
cynixx3Who has a favorite wiki on mounting??06:26
michael_2arrrghhh: The LVM wont mess up your data.  You still have your same filesystems.  It is just a different partition manager scheme.06:27
topper4125!mounting | cynixx306:27
ubottucynixx3: For help with partitioning a new install see: https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/installation-guide/i386/partitioning.html - For partitioning programs see !GParted, !QtParted (!Kubuntu 8.10 and lower) or !PartitionManager (!Kubuntu 9.04 and up) - Other partitioning topics include !fstab !home and !swap06:27
milambercynixx3: man mount06:27
michael_2Averna: use sudo touch to create that file again.06:27
arrrghhhmichael_2, I don't understand.  How can I mount the data on these drives now?06:27
michael_2arrrghhh: The same way you mounted them before.  But when using a LVM, the partitions are referenced by names instead of sda3 or whatever.06:28
michael_2arrrghhh: check out your /etc/fstab file to see if it gives any hints.06:29
arrrghhhI've on a livecd right now... I just wanted to make sure my data was OK06:29
arrrghhhbefore I proceeded to do anything else06:29
cynixx3milamber, :( i need more than a man. Its a topic that has me upside down and I can never understand why. I need a real tutorial on how the system finds mounting points and how it works06:29
michael_2arrrghhh: Have you not ran the installer yet?06:29
michael_2cynixx3: mount points are located in the /etc/fstab file06:30
arrrghhhmichael_2, I had ran it, but stopped it when I freaked out.  Ran a different livecd and wanted to make sure my data was thar06:30
cynixx3Understand where they are. but sometimes something I plugs in does not show up in that file06:30
michael_2arrrghhh: The Ubuntu installer can safely transition for a classic partitioning scheme to LVM.06:30
arrrghhhoh... ok06:30
cynixx3I just want to read something that tells me why06:30
michael_2cynixx3: What do you mean?06:30
michael_2arrrghhh: Just don't select to record your installation OVER that partition06:31
cynixx3so i have a usb to serial adapte that i use with a rollover cable. Why does it not show up in /etc/fstab?06:31
michael_2cynixx3: Did you add it to /etc/fstab?06:32
michael_2cynixx3: It wont be there if you don't add it.  :P06:32
AvernaMichael_2 thanks. Not familiar with that command. Can you explain? Do I need to go to /var/lib/apt/lists/ to perform sudo touch?06:32
arrrghhhmichael_2, yea, I was really careful where the install was going...06:33
cynixx3michael_2: do you have a favorite wiki on mounting?06:33
michael_2Averna: touch is used to create an empty file if it doesn't exist.06:33
ubottuThe /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions06:33
arrrghhhOy.  I had a bit of a heart attack when I saw all the drives change from ext4 to LVM06:33
michael_2averna: just type sudo touch /path/to/missing/file/error06:34
michael_2arrrghhh: lol...They're still ext4...Just using a different partition managing schem.  Backwards compatibility might be an issue for you though06:34

Syriatopper4125:  Please read this http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/clusterssh/index.php?title=Main_Page#ClusterSSH_-_What_is_it_all_about.3F07:45
SyriaIt says Any text typed into the administration console is replicated to all windows. ! but I don't know how to do this, I get all the windows infront of me.07:46
topper4125Syria, I'm pretty unfamiluar with that... I'll read up on it.07:47
Syriatopper4125: Thank you in advance.07:47
jayarso i setup ubuntu on a raid array with 2 40gb drives, one seems to be failing, and the raid array is "degraded" how do i fix that?07:48
jayarit wont let me do anythin07:48
jayarthe one drive is so bad, its serial #/model # is garbled even in BIOS...07:49
Emanonjayar: What type of raid? Redundant, Striping? Do you have any parity?07:50
jayarraid 107:52
topper4125Syria, almost looks like keyboard cast and ClusterSSH are close to being different solutions to the same problem to me... with the exception of clusterssh being more of a setup for administration only, and keyboard cast being for a bit of everying (10 calculators lol)... This subject really is out of my knowledge base :(07:52
Third3yeWhy is it recommended to download the 32bit version of Ubuntu? Is it just to prevent confusion in unexperienced users or are there actual compatibility issues with the 64bit version?07:52
dikiI was wondering, can I embed some programs in ubuntu so I can run them from a livecd?07:53
topper4125Third3ye ... pretty much... they can't guarentee that everyone looking at ubuntu for the first time is knowlegable about 32/64 bit OS's and their limitations/expectations07:53
dikiIn particular, airmon-ng,aircrack-ng etc.07:53
Third3yeCan I just dist-upgrade to 64bit or do I have to reinstall the whole damn thing?07:54
Syriatopper4125:  Thank you I will go with keyboardcast :)07:54
Emanonjayar: RAID 1 is a mirroring RAID so you have an automatic backup of anything on them the RAID manpage should have options for replacing one of the component drives in case of failure but if you give me a few minutes I'll try to find a how-to so you don't have to try to figure out which combination of flags you should use.07:54
Third3yeoh and proprietary nvidia drivers... are there compatibility issues with 64bit ubuntu?07:54
tenXThird3ye: think you cant simply switch from 32 to 6407:55
brady2600ok in my home folder07:55
topper4125!persistence | diki07:55
brady2600there is a folder calledfontconfig07:55
ubottudiki: To have some persistent storage when using a Live CD, follow the instructions on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDPersistence07:55
brady2600im not sure if its a system related folder or07:55
brady2600if its just some junk folder created in some process07:55

topper4125Third3ye, http://askubuntu.com/questions/5018/is-it-possible-to-upgrade-from-a-32bit-to-a-64bit-installation07:56
brady2600there is a folder in my home called output07:57
topper4125Syria, you're welcome, and good luck with keyboardcast07:58
brady2600inside the folder is a series of other folders, gif, exe, docx, all sorts of file types in this folder called output07:58
brady2600however, none of these folders contain anything07:58
Third3yeHow about this: I use my TV as my main screen via HDMI and because of this I can't hide the dashbar because it won't reappear when I hover the mouse on the left-hand side of the screen, or the top left for that matter...07:58
brady2600is this folder junk from another process?07:58
EmanonNow, as a side note did you set up your RAID using the standard drive IDs (/dev/sd*) or via UUID (/dev/disk/by-uuid/<whatever the ID was> ?07:58
Third3yeAnyone found a solution for this? I was in the configuration file and it's set to <main>yes</main>07:59
brady2600is this some crazy system for outputting from programs to a million diffrent filetype folders07:59
brady2600can i safely get rid of this folder?07:59

XRS1output is not a folder you would normally find. see if its recovered data you recognise, otherwise throw it out08:02

XRS1sudo apt-get purge?08:03
EmanonThen that link I sent you should be accurate unless they changed something in RAID since the last time I used it jayar.08:03
aeon-ltdchris___: if it's blacklisted the module shouldn't load when you boot08:04
chris___  echo "blacklist vesa" > /etc/modprobe.d/vesa.conf   right?08:04

Geethi.. I used ubuntu using wubi for over 12 months now.. thought that was the safest way to try it out.. but now that i have done it i would like to dual boot my system with win7.. so is the wubi installation convertable to a dual boot?08:08
H4xt3hpl4n3tIt hasnt recognised mine. But i also have the newer UEFI boot//Legacy mode enabled\\08:09
XRS1chris___:  you can sudo apt-get remove or sudo apt-get purge the package08:09
XMLnewbiif I needed to make a folder 777 in chmod             would the command look like  $ chmod u+x filename           Im not sure on the middle part08:09
EmanonI may just have a supported card too H4xt3hpl4n3t.08:09
jayarlegacy mode just helps with old pci cards (sometimes isa, but i doubt anyone has that anymore)08:10
XMLnewbiused to making these edits in net2ftp but it giving me erros editing something out of httpdocs08:10
XRS1Geet:  back up your /home/ directory and once ubuntu is installed, replace it with your backup08:10
XRS1XMLnewbi: sudo chmod 777 /dir/to/path -Rv08:11

jayarDrCode: yea its a GUI partition proggy, like PartitionMagic i guess (yes no?)08:32
jayarme too brady08:32
brady2600there was another one08:33
brady2600i forgot the name but, it had this really cool side bar08:33
jayaryea lightstep like fell a few times, then a bunch of people (devoted developers) picked it back up again08:33
brady2600you could hover your mouse , the sidebar would pop out, if you held it over the notes icon, a notes panel would pop out08:33
jayarbut i havent heard of it in a long time08:33
brady2600you didn't need to save stuff on it , you could just write stuff down quick, and it would retract when you click on something else08:34
=== ericab is now known as ericab_away
brady2600i miss that feature sooo much08:34
jayaryea i even made my own theme a few times, but everytime they updated the damn thing, my theme wouldnt work, and it was a resource hog, back when i had a 266Mhz with 512mb and thought i was KING08:34
brady2600it had tabs aswell, for multiple pages of notes08:34
brady2600yes.. thats why i moved to ubuntu, just the ability to theme without windows trying to kill it every new version of the os08:35
jayarso thats kinda my question... how do I... ME edit my ubuntu theme?08:35
brady2600thats what it was called, the other shell08:36
brady2600good question, i recall window blinds at one point made like a theme builder08:36
brady2600that would be awsome to have for ubuntu, an application for building your own theme08:37
jayarim a graphic artist... so i wanna layout my screen that looks like sex with bacon on top08:37
EmanonAston Shell was/is awesome.08:37
jayarwait... yer sayin it doesnt exist yet?08:37
jayarhow f'n open source is this?08:37
brady2600no.. im just saying it would be awsome08:37
jayarim mad that it isnt08:37
brady2600its my understanding that ubuntu is copyleft08:37
jayaryea but, ubuntu or not, theres tons of other *nix distros...08:38
brady2600yeah, i like ubuntu with gnome 3.6 though08:38
jayarwheres the "how to create your own KDE" or GNOME... or whatever08:38
brady2600one of the other features i liked about aston/litestep was that08:39
brady2600you could set it up so you could right click on your desktop08:39
brady2600and you could assign diffrent folders or drives to it08:39
jayaryea that was my biggest thing08:39
jayarright click = menu08:40
jayarand you could make the menu have whatever you wanted08:40
brady2600so you would see your drive, hover over it in the menue, then a dropdown would open up with its contents, you could quickly drop down , drop down , drop down and find your files quick08:40

vect0rCan get it to run and everything like that, but no dice on playability.08:51
bazhangdecci, if the header and guest additions are installed, I'm not sure then; you may wish to also ask in #vbox as well08:51

faryshtaMuphrid, so what do I do?09:18
blaz_jayar there is no error... just that i cant use the net while watching tv on the lan card09:18
Muphridfaryshta: what exactly do you want to fix, a slow system?09:18

faryshtaMuphrid, but that will install another driver, I want to know which one I am using first09:23
MuphridiLogical: do you know the package name?09:23
Muphridfaryshta: there are only two radeon drivers, the one included in xorg (xserver-xorg-video-radeon) and fglrx09:24
jayarblaz_: thats very odd. when you pause, can you use the internet? or is it just while its open09:24
BlackDalekis there a separate channel for xubuntu questions or is this the right channel?09:24
blaz_jayar: its while i have the lan cable inserted09:24

Muphridfaryshta: type 'lsmod | grep radeon'09:25
Muphridis the radeon module is loaded then youre using the xorg driver09:25
jayarblaz_: please tell me that you have the lan cable inserted the entire time you are trying to gain internet access...09:25
blaz_jayar: because the default route goes through over the lan cable... which is hooked in a viedo out port on the modem, and has no internet acces, just iptv acces09:25
faryshtaMuphrid, http://pastebin.com/6WbRxF4Q09:26
Muphridfaryshta: lspci -v | grep -A 10 VGA\ compatible    could work aswell09:26
jayarblaz_: oh wait... you're trying to use an iptv connection to access the internet?09:26
blaz_jayar: i do not have internet over the lan cable.... its just for iptv... i connect via the wifi for the internet09:26
BlackDalekno one is awake in #xubuntu09:27
iLogicalMuphrid, do you know how to disable it?09:27
blaz_jayar: no i use wifi for internet and lan for iptv09:27
Muphridfaryshta: yes youre using the radeon driver from xorg09:27
jayarwell theres yer problem kid09:27
iLogicalfound it nvm09:27
blaz_jayar: but cannot use both at the same time09:27
MuphridiLogical: i dont use kde, you should look for the package name. type ps -u yourusername09:27
Muphridand look for the process09:27
BlackDalekhey... in the middle of installing xubuntu alongside my regular ubuntu - I am at the paritioning screen.. there is a left side and a right side but utterly no explanantion which side is which :( ... is xubunut the left side or right side?09:27

faryshtaMuphrid, what if I uninstall that driver and NOT use fglrx?09:28
Muphridgoing on09:28
Muphridfaryshta: you will have a low graphics fallback09:29
Cur10u8which torrent client is the best for ubuntu?09:29
Muphridresolution and other things wont be detected09:29
jayarohhhhhhhhhhhh i gotchya... so your wireless card is on yer wifi, but when you plug in to watch tv, it takes over your net... i cant say its an IP conflict, cuz im not sure how the iptv box gives you an ip (dhcp or static) but it sounds more like one of your lan/wifi cards is taking over09:29
blaz_Cur10u8: try transmission09:29
jayari have 3 on my box, and i cant use 2 at a time...09:29
faryshtabut to install fglrx I need to downgrade xorg right?09:30
Muphridfaryshta: unfortunately, yes09:30
faryshtaMuphrid, I dunno if that is what I want. I prefer to roll back to 11.1009:30
jayarblaz_: have you tried to bridge the connections?09:30
Muphridfaryshta: I have a similar card, HD3300 and im running 12.04.1 , got no issues with graphics or performance09:31
Muphridrunning the radeon module09:31
degkorathi again, it says many things but not why does not work09:31
Cur10u8what can i use as alternate to notepad++ for windows. as it does not support ubuntu.09:31
jayarblaz_: (that worked for my partners pc which has a nas/lan and my network)09:31
blaz_jayar: yes its is like that :D i do remeber on win xp it was solved by setting a different matrix for each card then it would work.... on win7 it works automatically.... on raspberry pi i set it up using vlan09:31
aeon-ltdCur10u8: what features do you need?09:32
Muphridfaryshta: the xorg downgrading operation is reversible09:32
Muphridyou can try it...09:32

blaz_jayar: yes sorry its not the matrix its a value to assign to the card so the pc knows which has the priority09:35
jayaryea but you have 2 dif connections to the world. wifi and iptv. they both need to be in love with they dont like to share tho... unless you running windows and enable "network sharing"09:35
degkoratIs there anybody around Bangkok that I can meet to let the program works?09:36
blaz_jayar: the value is called interface metric :D09:37
faryshtaMuphrid, I see I have other xserver-xorg-video-* drivers installed09:37
faryshtaMuphrid, including intel, nvidia, etc. should I remove them?09:37
jayaryea i knew what you meant :)09:38
Muphridfaryshta: they are pre-installed because people have different hardware and they should support the most hardware possible09:38
Muphridthey are inoffensive to your hardware09:38
degkoratSomebody here for help?09:38
faryshtaMuphrid, so they are not causing overheating too? if I remove them something bad happens?09:38
Muphridfaryshta: no09:39

faryshtaMuphrid, damn. I uninstalled the package10:08
GoogleGuyI have an issue where rsyslog is not logging anything. What's the best way to debug that?10:08
Third3yeThere's no window manager at all and when I log in there's nothing on the desktop except the wallpaper10:08
faryshtaMuphrid, how can I remove the driver?10:08
Third3yeHow do I debug this problem, where are the crash logs for unity?10:08
faryshtaapt-get remove xserver-xorg-video-radeon didn't worked10:09
Muphridfaryshta: you can simply blacklist it though i dont know what you would use instead10:09
goddardhow can i mount this disk? http://pastebin.com/P4409Vi610:09

jacklkHi, is there any support channels for Openbox or can I get it here?10:13
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience10:14
Muphridfaryshta: Um, i think youre better downgrading still10:15
jacklkAre there any support channels for Openbox?10:15
Muphridfaryshta: what if you use something like gnome fallback instead of unity?10:16
faryshtaMuphrid, I am using xfce10:17
Muphridfaryshta: that should be a performance problem10:18
EmanonSo, I heard that 13.04 may integrate network bonding into the network manager, is this true?10:21
EmanonOr is there a better channel to ask this in?10:21
ChaozHenchmanI think #ubuntu-offtopic would be better suited for this10:22
ChaozHenchmanbecause it's not really a troubleshooting thing10:22
EmanonBut this is on topic just a beta release is there a channel for upcoming ubuntu releases?10:23
MuphridEmanon: #ubuntu-devel i think10:23
EmanonThank you Muphrid.10:23
ChaozHenchmandid not know about that channel10:23
EmanonIt's ok it happens to me all the time. :-)10:23
MonkeyDustEmanon  support for 13.04 in #ubuntu+110:24

Third3yeWhat's ubuntus gdm?10:28
Third3yeI'm trying to restart it because I think the nvidia drivers were to blame for my problems -- so I've now removed them and want to restart the login screen :P10:28
EmanonLightDM handles the login screen I think.10:28
Third3yeThere we go..!10:29
Third3yeSo now the question is: how the hell do I get nvidia to work?10:29
jayar^ what Emanon said, and you can use CTRL+ALT+F1 to get to prompt10:29
Third3yejayar: way ahead of you ^^10:29
Third3yeI'm not a complete n00b :P10:30
* jayar was late on the answer tip10:30
Third3yeHad to use apt-get to remove the nvidia drivers10:30
EmanonI hope I'm not either but I didn't know about ctrl alt f110:30
Third3yeBut I still want the proprietary nvidia drivers :/ I only installed ubuntu to use steam10:30
Third3yeEmanon: it's how you get to the console :)10:30
EmanonAnd I didn't know that.10:30
jayarwait what? "only installed ubuntu to use steam" ???10:31
Third3yeI wanted to test steam for linux10:31
EmanonI'm used to alt+d2 for the quick version and ctrl+alt+t for the ful terminal.10:31
Emanonalt+f2 I meant.10:31
Third3yeSo I installed the 32bit, it worked -- then I installed 64bit, and it didn't work with the nvidia drivers :/10:31
EmanonIt works fine with mine...10:32
EmanonOr at least it works.10:32
jayarthat would be a hardware issue10:32
EmanonI have multiple monitors so nothing really "works great"10:32

ActionParsnipWarfar: I suggest you unmount the NTFS, boot to Windows and run a scandisk11:06
wdplonnie, i don't think it's meant like that; i.e. i don't think they really have root access. by default ubuntu has no root password set. However, they _might_ have or lemme rephrase "one" might use sudo or a special user account with root permissions. You should check your sudo rules. Anyway: Read the "we have root" part with the following sentence in that article.11:07
ActionParsnipLonnie: the Amazon suggestion thing is anonymous.  You can remove the Amazon thing easily11:07
wdplonnie, i think it's meant like that: you're installing ubuntu - that means you're trusting them in some way - there might be all sorts of exploits, and code in applications which originate from ubuntu developers.11:08
wdpnot saying that is the case, just saying that is possible. so in a way... they have root.11:08
jayarwdp: you can say that for any distro of opensource OS11:09
lonnieI was concerned that he means, he can see all your files if he wants too, but choses not to and you should continue to trust him. He said "we have root"11:09
wdpjayar, correct.11:09
ActionParsnipYay I'm the top dog in launchpad karma.11:09
aeon-ltdderailing but; if you are afraid can you truly trust anyone. can you trust microsoft just because you pay for a license?11:09
lonnieIf there is not root, then why would he say "we have root"  ?11:09
wdplonnie, this is correct -> he could, if he adds that to some application.11:09

Tashtegogartral: ./packages/Ubuntu/ati-packager.sh: 294: ./packages/Ubuntu/ati-packager.sh: debclean: not found12:11
Tashtego./packages/Ubuntu/ati-packager.sh: 295: ./packages/Ubuntu/ati-packager.sh: dpkg-buildpackage: not found12:11
ActionParsnipMar: yes, or upgrade directly to Precise.12:12
gartralTashtego: ahh.. apt-get install build-essential12:12
atlefjacklk, do you have your gfx card driver installed12:12
jacklkatlef: idk12:12
ActionParsnipMar: again,  why such an ancient release with so little support left in it?12:12
jacklkI done what ActionParsnip said, I don't think I have the real drvier12:12
Third3yeSo now there's no sound whatsoever... not from internal speakers, not from hdmi either...12:13
wargar2hey is it logical to set my swapspace to my win7 install?12:13
k1l_wargar2: what?12:13
wargar2im installing Ubuntu and i should set a swap  space12:13
marwhat did you mean i didn't get what you said12:13
ActionParsnipWargar2: you could use a swap file stored in NTFS (maybe, never done it). Swap is usually its own partition12:14
wargar2would it effect windows12:14
ActionParsnipMar: why did you install lucid (ubuntu 10.04) when it has only 4 months support left?12:14
Third3yeSo how do I failcheck alsa sound or kernel audio drivers anyways?12:14
atlef!sound | Third3ye12:15
ubottuThird3ye: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.12:15
k1l_wargar2: make a seperate partition for swap. that is the easiest12:15
Tashtegogartral: make: dh: Command not found12:15
Tashtegomake: *** [build-arch] Error 12712:15
Tashtegodpkg-buildpackage: error: debian/rules build gave error exit status 212:15
Tashtego[Error] Generate Package - error generating package : Ubuntu/precise12:15
marOops may be this the problem of our support team they already gave my this Laptob with this version !!!12:15
ActionParsnipWargar2: no, but i'd recommend using its own partition.  If you tell the installer to use the NTFS as swao, it will wipe it and use the whole partition12:16
ActionParsnipMar: no, lucid is nearly dead12:16
troopcan i tune fontconfig on live cd ?12:16
wargar2how do ii add a partion in setup12:16
ActionParsnipTroop: sure, you can do anything in liveCD except reboot12:16
gartralTashtego: I'm not being mean, and to prove the point I'll give you one last hint, but from here out you should do your own research if things blow up.. apt-get install debhelper12:16
troopActionParsnip thanks12:17
jacklkPlease help12:17
ActionParsnipMar: you can upgrade to Precise from Lucid, both are LTS so it is supported12:17

ActionParsnipJacklk: is there a config file storing the resolution to use?12:18
jacklkI think so12:19
jacklkI will have a search12:19
ActionParsnip!upgrade | mar12:19
ubottumar: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade12:19
atlefwargar2, you need to shrink windows partition and create free space for ubuntu to be installed12:19
gartralTashtego: It's not you... I just hold a very deep grudge against AMD..12:19
atlef!install | wargar212:19
wargar2aww dang i have to go into win again12:19
ubottuwargar2: Ubuntu can be installed in lots of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall - Don't want to use a CD? See http://tinyurl.com/3exghs - See also !automate12:19
jacklkActionParsnip: I've found it12:20
jacklkWhat shall I set the resolution to?12:20
wargar2how much is reccomended?12:20
jacklkThis monitor is like 1440 x 90012:20
marmay thanks ActionParsnip and ubottu12:20
wargar2(swap size)12:20
Tashtegogartral: ... installed deb-helper. even now it crashes. well its quite the latest ubuntu version and it doesnt support my vga card.... thats ... what about "long time support" ;(12:20
wargar2i have 8gb ram12:20
atlefsame as ram12:21
Tashtegogartral:  thx anyways12:21
gartralTashtego: wait12:21
gartralTashtego: what card?12:21
Tashtegogartral: Radeon HD 7850 Royal King12:21
jacklkActionParsnip: I've changed it, now I get this: http://pastebin.com/eSquXvuH12:21
wargar2nice card12:22
gartralTashtego: *sigh* hang on..12:22
Tashtegogartral: <3 !12:22
gartralTashtego: 35 seconds of googling reveals this.. http://askubuntu.com/questions/205112/ubuntu-12-10-amd-intel-hybrid-graphics-not-working/210565#210565 follow it up to the Optional part..12:24
ActionParsnipJacklk: tried renaming the config folder for the game?12:24
jacklkActionParsnip: What to?12:25
ActionParsnipJacklk: something different12:25
gartralTashtego: in the future, invest in Nvidia.12:26
jacklkthat would just mess it up even more if it can't find the files?12:26
troophello again. now im on live cd. where is fontconfig file?12:26
ActionParsnipJacklk: the app will see no config and make a vanilla folder for you. What do you think happened when you first installed and ran it?12:27
=== Morphje__ is now known as Morphje
jacklkShall I delete the current folder?12:28
jacklkOr move it somewhereit cannot find?12:28
ActionParsnipJacklk: no, rename, like I said and explained12:28
jacklkit still fails12:29
ActionParsnipJacklk: jesus, if its too hard just add the wird 'old' to the end12:29
ActionParsnipJacklk: did a new folder get generated?12:29
jacklkIt's not hard I never said it was12:29
jacklkanother folder did get generated12:29
jacklkIt looks like a problem with my graphics driver, after I installed it I keep getting these error messages12:30
jacklkMaybe I should just sudo rm -r /?12:30
ActionParsnipJacklk: thats how configs work. Very handy. Now you know its not the config at fault. You can delete the new config and rename back the old if you want12:30
alcaprawndidnt expect a native version of steam for nix *_*12:31
bhaveshMy Unity on Ubuntu 12.04.1 started working incredibly faster when I did "sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-intel", anyone has any idea why?12:32
jacklklol ^12:32
Third3yeok... so I've found a solution, but the solution doesn't work -- since it relies upon a special snapshot of alsa-driver. It's a problem with hp dvx laptops (I have hp dv5). I found it on the help pages for ubuntu, but he source is a bit old (2009) and only works on a Ubuntu 9.04...12:32
jacklkbhavesh: Maybe because you installed your graphics driver?12:33
jacklkActionParsnip: any idea?12:33
jacklkShould I install a different graphics driver?12:33
gartralThird3ye: well.. it's an ugly kludge, but can you live with a usb sound card?12:33
ActionParsnipJacklk: do other games run?12:33
alcaprawndo u have ati or nvidia12:33
jacklkI don't know12:33
jacklkI don't play games12:33
Third3yegartral: not really :P cause I want HDMI to work...12:33
jacklkI only play Teeworlds ;p12:33
alcaprawnjacklk: , what gpu do u have?12:34
jacklkalcaprawn: ATI Radeon HD629012:34
jacklkIt's integrated into this crappy AMD CPU12:34
alcaprawnyou should try latest beta drivers12:34
alcaprawnfrom ati's site12:34
alcaprawnim using them with a 6870 running good enough for now12:34
jacklkOkay I'll try12:34
bhaveshjacklk, I already had it installed..12:34
alcaprawnlook at this post.12:34
jacklkbhavesh: "My Unity on Ubuntu 12.04.1 started working incredibly faster  when I did "sudo apt-get install --reinstall12:35
ActionParsnipJacklk: isn't teeworlds a game?12:35
jacklkActionParsnip: "12:33 < jacklk> I only play Teeworlds ;p12:35
Third3yeIt's kind of perplexing... as internal speakers worked on the 32bit version of ubuntu12:35
jacklkbhavesh: nvm12:35
ActionParsnipJacklk: and you didn't think to maybe try different games....12:35
jacklkLike what games?12:35
Robbiliei really want ubu for phones to be released :(12:36
ActionParsnipJacklk: tuxcart, frozen bubble, ntry searching software centre12:36
jacklkalcaprawn: What psot?12:36
bhaveshRobbilie, Ofcourse it will be released12:36
jacklkRobbilie: It will probably crash your phone12:36
k1l_!phone | Robbilie bhavesh jacklk12:37

jacklkAMD's servers are so slow it takes like 1 hour to download a graphics driver..12:37
sigurdingcan anyone tell me how to install a plain server with a core unity desktop? I mean without the whole open office stuff etc12:37
ActionParsnipRobbilie: imho, its too late and will die off soon12:37
RobbilieActionParsnip, i dont think so ;)12:37
Robbilieit will have great performance over other oss'12:38
cfhowlettsigurding: purpose of the server?12:38
Robbiliebhavesh, i guess it will be :D jacklk i have an intel powered phone muhahahan :D12:38
DrCodehi all12:38
ActionParsnipRobbilie: considering iphone and android are doing so well, there is little room for a new entry especially at this time12:38
jacklkActionParsnip: What desktop envrioment do you use?12:39
DrCodeIf I have low video card , can I make gnome run faster?12:39
DrCodeI want to use ubuntu12:39
sigurdingcfhowlett: it shall be a local testing machine with postgres and mongo and I do want to have the admin uis installed on it, because of that I would like to have a desktop12:39
ActionParsnipJacklk: I don't,  I only use fluxbox these days12:39
sigurdingcfhowlett: it is installed in VM12:39
DrCodeits ati card,12:39
RobbilieActionParsnip, i guess like in desktop environments, they dont want to be the biggest but are fine with beeing beside the biggest12:39
jacklkDrCode: only if you have the latest drivers12:39
ActionParsnipDrcode: try lxde, it uses a lot fewer resources12:39
cfhowlettDrCode: if you suspect your hardware is strangling you, consider a different desktop environment: lxde or xfce are both optimized for older, low spec machines12:39
cfhowlettsigurding: looking for the right configuration tutorial12:40
RobbilieDrCode, try archlinux it only takes up about 200mb ram :D12:40
Robbiliewell less12:40
DrCodeits ari SB60012:40

DrCodeati SB60012:40
Robbiliek1l_, just adding smthng to what somebody else wrote ;)12:41
Robbiliek1l_, atm im just here for news bout ubu phone os12:41
sigurdingif have seen --without-recommendations or so, but I did not get to work unity at all, because no applications were accessable12:41
DrCodeATI RS690 , it say vga in lspci , is there driver?12:41
k1l_Robbilie: i pointed you to the ubuntu-phone channel. and if you want to support archlinux they got their support servers.12:41
jacklkRobbilie: you installed Arch Linux?12:41
ActionParsnipRobbilie: tried tinycore :) 12mb iso12:41
Robbiliek1l_, dont want to support them but you must admit that it runs smoother on low end hardware...? thanks for the channel, didnt read that12:41
jacklkActionParsnip: TinyCore is useless12:42
cfhowlettsigurding: I THINK this is it.  if not look for something similar ... or ask in #ubuntu-server  http://www.docstoc.com/docs/22211437/How-to-configure-VMWare-WorkstationServer-install-Ubuntu12:42
Robbiliejacklk, ActionParsnip why useless? arcvh is fine12:42
ActionParsnipJacklk: obviously never used a thin client12:42
k1l_Robbilie: im not gonna admit anything here besides ubuntu support. thats what the channel is for. thanks for sticking to the guidlines12:42
RobbilieActionParsnip, just ran it because ubu didnt chroot well12:42
Azmuthanyone familiar with winetricks ?12:43
sigurdingcfhowlett: I have the server already running under vmware, but I need to know how to install unity-desktop without this whole soft clash12:43
ActionParsnipRobbilie: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/09/live-usb-sticking-grub-2-video12:43
ubottuA high percentage of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..." Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.12:43
ActionParsnipRobbilie: is how I chroot :)12:43
jacklkWho was "p5DDF9DA9.dip.t-dialin.net"?12:43
cfhowlettsigurding: OK.  Over my head.  sorry.12:43
Azmuthok lol12:43
EmanonAzmuth: Not directly but PlayOnLinux uses it to some positive ends.12:43
EmanonIf I'm not mistaken that is.12:44
ubottuazmuth: WINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu12:44
ActionParsnipAzmuth: try in #winehq as well12:44
Azmuthi tried but no one answered12:44
Emanonjacklk: ~Robbilie@p5DDF9DA9.dip.t-dialin.net12:44
EmanonHe was kicking Robbilie in such a way that changing his nick wouldn't let him back in.12:45
Azmuthi installed directx with winetricks and when i run gta sa it show error "required directx 9.0" ?12:45
sigurdingcfhowlett: ok12:45
Azmuthany idea12:45
Tashtegogartral: "Download from this direct-link:".... there are no more files to download. i think i am giving up. downloading from several sites, free packages around all the net and thousands of packages... i dont even know if i can trust 'em. that should not be the way a simple vga driver is installed... :(12:45
ActionParsnipAzmuth: wine is an abstraction for directx, you cannot install directx in wine12:46
ActionParsnipAzmuth: did you check the apodb for x12:46
Azmuthyes i did12:46
Robbilie_stop that i didnt do anything12:46
Azmuthand it work!12:46
AndylandPlus with Steam for linux coming along in a short while (6-18 months) you won't have to W(h)ine anymore :D12:46
EmanonThat is unless he proxies...12:47
ActionParsnipAzmuth: cool, did you scroll down on the psge, is there a how to guide?12:47
Azmuthi installed it with winetricks...12:47
EmanonAzmuth: If you like I could walk you through installing DX properly via PlayOnLinux.12:47
EmanonSince I am somewhat more familiar with that.12:47
ikoniaplayonlinux is no better than wine12:48
ikoniaif you want to play a windows game....use windows.12:48
AzmuthEmanon: do playonlinux support samp injection12:48
EmanonNo it's not but it's easier to use ikonia.12:48
EmanonI'm not sure Azmuth give me a minute.12:48
ActionParsnipAzmuth: on the appdb there are how to guides12:48
ActionParsnipAzmuth: try reading the whole page12:49
failori heard there is native steam for linux already, is there cs:s on linux without wine?12:49
ikoniafailor: check out the steam website for what's available o nlinux12:49
_kudSince I've upgraded my ubuntu and some other stuffs, I can't use anymore my keyboard in my cli12:49
_kudAny idea?12:49
AzmuthActionParsnip: can you give me link ?12:49
_kudI'm on ubuntu server, no Xorg12:49
MonkeyDustfailor  http://store.steampowered.com/browse/linux/12:50
_kudit seems not to be a tmux trouble because when I disable it, it still doesn't work correctly12:50
failorMonkeyDust, ikonia thx12:50
ActionParsnip_kud: is the system ca laptop?12:50
Azmuthi have installed it!12:50
_kudNo, i'm on desktop12:50
arshavinfailor: yes steam has native linux client,I have it installed took 121 mb of downloading and there only a handfull games available12:50
EmanonAs in Samp SQL Injection for pentesting Azmuth?12:50
_kudit worked previously12:50
ActionParsnipAzmuth: read ALL the page12:51
Azmuthit inject a dll12:51
failorarshavin, i already bought uplink and defcon lol12:51
EmanonSo San Andreas Multiplayer?12:51
failorhavn't tried it yet though12:51
arshavinfailor: good for you12:51
_kudI'm on 3.2.0-35-generic12:51
ActionParsnip_kud: if you pull the keyboard out, wait a while rhen reinsert, does it work?12:51
EmanonAlright I've played EverQuest on with PlayOnLinux so I think it can handle SA at least in theory.12:52
_kudWhen I connect via root, I have no trouble, ActionParsnip12:52
_kudit seems to be my profile but dunno why12:52
_kudI use zsh12:52
_kudI will try with root + zsh12:53
ActionParsnip_kud: if you boot an older kernel,  is it ok12:53
EmanonIn theory POL can do anything wine with winetricks can do since it's just a gui for them. In practice you still have to know what your doing if to a lesser degree than when using wine without it.12:53
_kudyes, it's zsh.12:53
AzmuthEmanon: playonlinux use wine ?12:53
_kudI try with a fresh profile, with bash and zsh12:53
_kudand zsh has troubles12:53
Third3yeIt kinda irritates... cause I can't get sound to work. But everytime I reboot I hear this bassdrum like kick when the kernel shuts down12:54
AzmuthEmanon: how to install it ?12:54
ActionParsnipAzmuth: its always wine doing the work,  the other stuff are just frontends to settings12:54
EmanonIt's just a GUI to handle the rough edges of wine. You can install it from the standard Ubuntu (or possibly partner/nonefree) repos or get the latest version from their site here http://www.playonlinux.com/en/.12:54
Azmuthok thx12:55
EmanonOnce you get that installed PM me and I'll tell you how to install DX the easy way.12:55
ActionParsnipAzmuth: what is the output of: apt-cache policy winev| grep -I installed12:55
ActionParsnipI hate this tablet sometimes12:55
ActionParsnipAzmuth: apt-cache policy wine | grep -i installed12:56
Azmuthinstalled: (none)12:57
Azmuththat's the output12:58
Third3yeSuch a simple friggin' fix...12:58
ActionParsnipAzmuth: ok run: sudo apt-get install pastebinit; dpkg -l | grep wine | pastebinit12:58
Third3yeI just had to add "options intel_hda model=dv5" to alsa-base.conf xD12:59
Third3yeThe internal speakers are working now12:59
ActionParsnipThird3ye: yeah those are needed sometimes12:59
EmanonWait, ActionParsnip there is a way to pipe the output straight to pastebin?12:59
EmanonThat's awesome.12:59
AzmuthActionParsnip: done12:59
ActionParsnipAzmuth: what is the url generated?13:00
Third3yeNow this irritates me... it worked, untill I logged in and changed the tv to the main display and turned off the laptop display...13:00
Third3yeNow the sound doesn't work again -.-;;13:00
sw0rdfish_anyone know a reliable free vpn service?13:01
Third3yeThough I did hear the drum when lightdm loaded :P13:01
EmanonYou just made my evening ActionParsnip.13:01
failorsw0rdfish, depends on goals, there r no free and reliable once for hardcore purposes, buy one "double"+13:02
ActionParsnipEmanin: sure, pastebinit accepts text streams :)13:03
sw0rdfish_failor: its just that my vps provider let my current vps expire even though I paid for another one and told him to move the current plan to the new one... so now I'm vpn-less13:03
sw0rdfish_so to speak13:03
cfhowlettsw0rdfish: from where?  I ask because I found a non-vpn workaround for FB here in china ...13:04
sw0rdfish_northern europe13:05
cfhowlettsw0rdfish: so not to bypass gov't restrictions then ...13:05
EmanonCouldn't you just use Tor cfhowlett?13:05
cfhowlettEmanon: maybe, but I'm a casual FB user and my impression is that tor is meant for more worldly matters *syria* *arab spring*13:06
Andylandsw0rdfish_: Yeah download the Tor browser bundle: https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en. Your DL might be a little slower due to the tunneling but your totally anonomous13:07
EmanonHardly. One of the lead Devs mentions it's aid in getting Chinese "citizens" to facebook.13:07
EmanonWOA Never say something is totally anonymous. That's putting people in danger.13:07
cfhowlettEmanon: as I said, I've got a workaround ... although I'm certain the gov't is very aware of it.13:07
EmanonIt hasn't been seriously compromised yet and they try to keep it that way.13:08
jacklkGoodbye Ubuntu, I'm installing Windows 713:08
sw0rdfish_i need a vpn13:08
jacklkfinally no more errors13:08
sw0rdfish_i'm having trouble installing it on my local laptop13:08
AndylandEmanon: Yes Mr IT security there's no such thing as "totally anonymous" but the Tor project is a pretty good step at getting there you have to admit?13:09
Third3yeHow do I delete the user sound settings?13:09
cfhowlettsw0rdfish: installing a vpn?13:09
Third3yeis it in .conf?13:09
jostjacklk, right... you do know that windows was programmed by Microsoft? So dream on.13:09
failortor has serious security issues13:09
EmanonDefinitely I just think it's irresponsible to say it's totally secure. It gives people the impression they don't need to use other methods to protect their identities online as well.13:09
cfhowlettEmanon: point taken.13:10
sw0rdfish_cfhowlett: installing openvpn i mean13:10
jacklkjost: So? Microsoft sucks, but Windows 7 is fine13:10
cfhowlettsw0rdfish: it won't install?  I am surprised ..13:10
sw0rdfish_i meant setting up is tough13:10
cfhowlettsw0rdfish: how are you installing and what feedback are you getting13:10
cfhowlettsw0rdfish: oh, well yeah...  not the most intuitive.13:11

SpheXWhat should i do?13:48
SpheXActualy second line is: you need to load the kernel first13:48
ubuntuaddictedTex_Nick, it's beyond me why there is static, never used to be. i recently plugged in a HD PVR and a webcam but even unplugging those still results in static recordings. I mean it still records my voice but also has static and is unacceptable for my youtube videos13:48
Tex_Nickubuntuaddicted : ok, there is a common problem with PulseAudio on ubuntu 12.04 & 12.10 it causes audio distortion when using skype and playing multimedia files with VLC13:49

EmanonTex_Nick: Thanks for that tip about bonding the other night (that sounded so much less homoerotic in my head) I saw somewhere that 13.04 might be including a bonding option in the network manager.13:51
Tex_Nicki'm not sure if xubuntu is also affected ... i've had the problem & the fix is easy ... it only requires editing one line in the pulse directory ...; http://askubuntu.com/questions/157891/skype-and-vlc-sounds-sizzle-distorted-bad13:52

Tex_Nickubuntuaddicted : try editing that line ... i think you need to logout & back in or restart for it to work13:59
john_555nibbler_: If i could only safe some data from it. howabout forensic tools?13:59
ubuntuaddictedTex_Nick, it already had the tsched=0 on the end of the line I am saying.14:00

serhatTex_Nick, ubuntu 12.0415:19
TakeItEZUbiquity4321: have you enabled WoL on your nic? "ethtool ethX" tells you15:20
Tex_Nickserhat : ok first i'd just try logout then back in ... if it doesn't restore them ... you can reset the compiz settings15:20
serhatTex_Nick, is there a method to reset them all15:21
Ubiquity4321TakeItEZ: installing ethtool now15:21
serhatTex_Nick, do you use ubuntu with unity too?15:22
serhatTex_Nick, if so can you use those shortcuts?15:22
TakeItEZUbiquity4321: check the lines containing "Wake-on"15:22
Ubiquity4321TakeItEZ: hmmm says no such devices15:24

serhatTex_Nick, okay i got it on my own15:25
serhatTex_Nick, thanks anyway15:25
TakeItEZUbiquity4321: do you use /etc7network/interfaces to configure your network?15:25

Ubiquity4321TakeItEZ: it was automatically set up, but i'll look into that15:26
Tex_Nickserhat : lol ... ok ;-)15:27
TakeItEZUbiquity4321: check /etc/network/interface, add 2 lines after the "iface ethX..."  to enable WoL permanently:15:27
TakeItEZUbiquity4321: post-up /usr/sbin/ethtool -s ethX wol g15:28
TakeItEZUbiquity4321: post-down /usr/sbin/ethtool -s ethX wol g15:28
ravenis streamripper able to record 1 hour blocks?15:30
Ubiquity4321TakeItEZ: it's all written15:31
TakeItEZUbiquity4321: " /usr/sbin/ethtool -s ethX wol g" simply tells the given network-iface to wake on magic-packets, nothing dangerous :)15:31
Ubiquity4321TakeItEZ: tbh, i was only curious what -s did15:31
TakeItEZUbiquity4321: -s "change". so restart your network-iface, bring the machine down and wake it up from a different one using etherwake or a similar tool15:33
Ubiquity4321TakeItEZ: well, i want to wol from a windows box15:33

nemosnibler_, i am trying to boot from live cd15:42
volponeciaoa tutti15:43
nemosbut my grub looks black with options to install or try its not pink. Therefore i dont have F2, F3,F4,F5 and F6 options15:43
kylescottmcgilli havnt seen grub look pink before, its always been black for me, as for not having a F6 option, boot into a live cd, chroot your ubuntu install and change the grub cfg line, and reboot again15:44
nemosi see the grub. Its just black with options to press C to edit commands and some other. Escape gets me to bash commands15:44
kylescottmcgilli think you can bash tab as well, and it will take it out of splash screen mode, or allow you to do something... argh memory is a little hazy :)15:44

nemosmichael_2: so i need to navigte to try before install and then press E?15:51
nemoskylescottmcgill: i dont see the normal grub options thats why i am asking what to do15:52
michael_2nemos: depending on your live cd setup, that might give you some options.  I've never tried it from a live cd, however, so I can't confirm if it wil work.15:52
nemoskylescottmcgill: the grub looks like if you dualboot and have few versions of linux and one windows.15:52

SailorMoonHow do i start Ubuntu in a Terminal?16:31
MonkeyDustkylescottmcgill  nu, you can use su -i, but be careful, it basically turns your pc into a windows machine, nobody wants that16:31
xxkoncyxxhy everybody16:31
McPelsjacklk: is there any other way?16:31
Owiecmichael_2: yes, i tried this and livecd see disk and data16:31
k1lGuest90562: just download it with firefox?16:31
kylescottmcgillMonkeyDust: lol you mean sudo -i ?16:31
michael_2SailorMoon: Are you asking how to make Ubuntu start in console mode by default instead of GUI mode?16:31
kylescottmcgillMonkeyDust: this is for nemos16:31
jacklkMcPels: Using GParted is easier16:32
jacklkMcPels: look on YouTube how to do it -- I've seen some videos it's simple16:32
jacklksearch for a guide online16:32
Guest90562bekkk, k1l  Then how people download wiki ,   i think one of my old friend downloaded it of 25 g16:32
mfdoomif I download ubuntu desktop 12.04, can I do a core install from that? Or will it automatically install recommends and such?16:32
kylescottmcgillhe cant boot into a livecd "try Ubuntu" due to some GFX issues on some of the later Mobo's16:32
michael_2Owiec: You could try adjusting the partition tables from Ubuntu in live cd test mode16:32
xxkoncyxxi have lubuntu 10.04on my Asus Eee PC 701SD.  Is there any way to install kde, openbox oe gnome onlubuntu?16:32
k1lGuest90562: that is different from "downloading a website". you should look out for a wikidump. but that is not a ubuntu support question. better ask the wiki support16:33
dufaGuest9041: you can use the command wget with -r to download a site recursively16:33
kylescottmcgillnemos: you could give it a shot, i cant promise its going to work, but according to the link you pasted me, there is a way around some of those issues, plus i have seen other users with your GFX Card running Ubuntu, so i know it works, but im not 100% sure about your Mobo sorry16:33

michael_2Owiec: After booting into test mode, use the GParted app to modify the partition tables.16:34
McPelsjacklk: sorry, I cannot have access to you tube now! in previous versions of ubuntu, by a right click i could simply find the "format" choice in the list, do you know why in this version this does not exist?16:34
xxkoncyxxany hungarian? :)16:35
kylescottmcgillmichael_2: can you change the partition type in gparted? (out of curiosity)16:35
xxkoncyxxwhats your problem with your pc?16:35
Owiecmichael_2: test mode?16:35
Owiecmichael_2: you mean "try ubuntu"?16:36
xxkoncyxxplease write it and i'll help, if i can :)16:36
jacklkMcPels: because the newer versions of Ubuntu suck16:36
jacklkIt's true16:36
michael_2Owiec: Exactly16:36
jacklkMcPels: Just search for a simple command online how to16:36
kylescottmcgillxxkoncyxx: you can install most Window Managers, or Desktop Managers, i have Awesome WM, and Gnome 3 running16:36
michael_2kylescottmcgill: You mean from ext2 to ext3 and such?16:36
xxkoncyxxubuntu's problem is he unity..16:36
michael_2Unity is great.  :D16:37
jacklkMcPels: ever since the introduction to unity it's lost many of it's features16:37
kylescottmcgillmichael_2: nah, sorry i was meaning GPT to MBR, so the Partition Record Type16:37
xxkoncyxxand you can downloada parted linux with unetbootin16:37
t2maheshi like Unity then gnome 3.4+16:37
xxkoncyxxi'm using lxde, 'cause i have an asus eee pc 701sd16:38
McPelsjacklk: thank you16:38
michael_2kylescottmcgill: I don't think so, but I could be wrong.  I use system-config-lvm for most of my partitioning needs.16:38
xxkoncyxxfor partitions you can use a Partition Magic or something like this16:38
Owiecmichael_2: or mayby exist other way to install ubuntu? some other instalator, mayby in text mode usign other tool to disk?16:39
kylescottmcgilli see, i might have a look later, i want to change my partition type to MBR and try Classic BIOS on my Macbook... without bricking it16:39
xxkoncyxxwrite it to cd or cop to a bootable pendrive, and woala it works16:39
jacklkxxkoncyxx: On your ASUS Eee PC did you have any compatibility problems? Mine, and I've seen many others are really bad with linux16:39
Owiecmichael_2: gparted see all partiations16:40
Owiecmichael_2: and all is corect16:40

Owiecmichael_2: i dont see any text info "LVM" in any coulumn in any partitions so i guess no16:42
xxkoncyxxi want to buy 1gb to it :)16:42
kylescottmcgillxxkoncyxx: you should be able to just sudo apt-get install openbox16:42
xxkoncyxxthanks :)16:43
MonkeyDustxxkoncyxx  what's the output of lsb_release -sd ?16:43
kylescottmcgillalso in your autostart file make sure you add gnome-keyring-daemon16:43
michael_2Owiec: I think you told me earlier that you already have a partition set aside for Ubuntu.  You could use GParted to format THAT partition as ext2 or something and then rerun the installer.16:43
xxkoncyxxi'm in live mode now16:43
xxkoncyxxbut it worth a try to get information:D16:44
MonkeyDustxxkoncyxx  of what ubuntu version?16:44
xxkoncyxxlubuntu 10.0416:44
kylescottmcgillwhats live mode.. is that the live cd?16:44
auronandacexxkoncyxx: lubuntu wasn't official at 10.0416:44
Owiecmichael_2: ok i will try that, give me a 3 minuts. Yes i have parition for ubuntu but not formated before.16:44
MonkeyDustxxkoncyxx  it will soon be !eol, don't struggle with it, better use 12.04 or 12.1016:44

jacklkBut it can be hard to get working nicely16:47
jacklkI've given up on it16:47
xxkoncyxxit worth a try16:47
kylescottmcgillxxkoncyxx: you should try ubuntu remix, or arch linux if you are looking for faster, but you should look at having at least 1GB of ram :)16:48
xxkoncyxxto update16:48
xxkoncyxxi have 512mb in it, but i want to expand itwhen i will have money for it16:48
Hwkillerarch won't be "faster"; if you need speed, use a different DE16:48

HwkillerI recommend xfce for a good balance of speed and features16:48

MonkeyDustlovepenguin  better repeat it then, but not too often, this is a busy channel16:58
michael_2Owiec: Manual installation can be extremely difficult.  The only easy option is to use the installer.  Have you tried redownloading and reburning the install disk in case of a corrupt copy?16:58
lovepenguinI've got an Asus q200e and I need a touchscreen-compatible operating system, is Ubuntu ready for that use case?16:58
kylescottmcgillzwirc: also, if you are running gnome, i would open System Settings, Under packages or software there are some options, about mirrors, get Ubuntu to find the one you want, and then try to sudo apt-get update ;16:58
Owiecmichael_2: no i didnt try, i think all is ok. I also found that problem in google but i didnt find the solution16:59
Owiecmichael_2: i can install manualy, give hint to some documentation17:00

=== Celene is now known as callie
michael_2Owiec: I'm not aware of a resource for manual installation.  It would basically involve manually setting up GRUB, setting up your swap partition, and copying all the files manually.  Then you would have to manually configure everything.  It would be a very difficult process.17:02

wtingHow do I forcefully shut down a program (xbmc) when my system is locked and I can't move the mouse?17:03

dartoswting: You mean task manager?17:03
milamberlovepenguin: depending on how much ram you have you may want to enable pae17:04
dartoswting: if you want to kill something that froze run xkill in the term and click on the frozen window17:04
wtingdartos: I want to force quit a program that's not responding, through GUI so my mom can do it.17:04
kylescottmcgillOwiec: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD you can this out17:04
dartoswting: ah... if you hit alt-f2 then type in xkill it would still work... but thats all I got for ya17:05
wtingdartos: Mouse was unresponsive, I could not bring up terminal. I had to drop to tty1 and use kill -9, but I need a mom-friendly method.17:05
dartoswting: alt-f2 then xkill17:05
dartosxkill is not hard to remember17:05
kylescottmcgillOwiec: http://wiki.debian.org/tasksel then you can install Desktop Enviroment, and sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop (if you want gnome)17:05
dartosand if she can remember ctrl-alt-del then she can get alt-f217:05
Random832unless the keyboard is also unresponsive17:06
dartosRandom832: then you reboot :P17:06
wtingPerhaps, but the bigger issue is why does xbmc crashing lead to an unresponsive mouse / keyboard.17:06
Random832might have to restart the computer - it's _possible_ for a program on windows to get it wedged so that you can't start the task manager, too, just less likely17:06
wtingi.e. why does a userspace program have the ability to halt X?17:06
Random832alternately, you could set up sshd, so that when your mom calls you you can fix it remotely17:06

mario_7Is it possible to boot LiveCD on Dell desktop with Ubuntu preinstalled? When I try to do it, it somehow loads not the contents of CD, but contents of recovery partition in 'live mode'. This also happens when one choose Install Ubuntu - installer from recovery partiton loads and it does not allow to finish partitioning step because of partition from hd lready mounted. Recovery partition seems to be mounted in /cdrom. Any ideas how to avoi17:07
mario_7d such behavior?17:07

Random832you could set up a script that finds whatever program is taking up the cpu or whatever and kills it, and put an icon on the other computer that runs it17:08

jhutchins_wkF3Speech: Any outstanding software/firmware updates?18:22
F3Speechjhutchins_wk: server is using a tp-link wifi usb adaptor18:23
F3Speechjhutchins_wk: nafaif18:23
jhutchins_wkF3Speech: wifi will do that.18:23
jhutchins_wkF3Speech: THere's no way you can completely eliminate that kind of error with that kind of setup.18:23
F3Speechjhutchins_wk: why is it only after a long idle it happens?18:23
jhutchins_wkF3Speech: Traffic helps keep the links active.  They're more likely to drop when idle.18:24
F3Speechjhutchins_wk: i thought is might be acpi related, powersaving on the usb or something18:24
jhutchins_wkF3Speech: It's more the sensitivity of cifs to minor network errors.18:24
F3Speechjhut the server is processing all the time the network link should be idle that long tbh18:24
F3Speechthink i should maybe try with smb?18:25
* SnowmanX11 is away: I'm busy.../Elfoglalt vagyok, ne zavarj!18:25
jhutchins_wkF3Speech: if the share _is_ idle periodically it's a good idea to set it up with autofs so that it brings up a new connection whenever it's needed.18:26
jhutchins_wkF3Speech: No significant difference.18:26
F3Speechjhutchins_wk: im still thinking its a power managment issue rather than protocol but atm i dont really 'know' anything :)18:26
MonkeyDust!away | SnowmanX1118:26
ubottuSnowmanX11: Please do not use noisy away messages and nicks in Ubuntu channels. It is annoying and unnecessary. Use the command "/away <reason>" to set your client away silently. See also «/msg ubottu Guidelines»18:26
* SnowmanX11 is back (gone 00:00:39)18:26
jhutchins_wkF3Speech: If it were a power management issue, other connections would be affected.18:26
F3Speechjhutchins_wk: the whole server hangs, all the web services and python i have running lose network connection18:27
jhutchins_wkF3Speech: Ok, that's not what you origianlly reported.18:28
=== Bladerunner is now known as Bladerunn
F3Speechjhutchins_wk:  sorry let me be clear, when i say hangs it is still responding to a degree as it reports errors to screen, but refuses any network connections18:29
cornfeedgood morning...I am trying to acpid to work with  my toshiba and i am about at my wits end...I have tried everything....I have a toshiba portege r835-p81 (laptop). I have acpid running and I can use acpi_listen to see that is catching events like changing screen brightness, but it doesn't *actually* do anything. I looked into fnfxd which is custom tailored to toshiba laptops but I cant find anything about its implimentation. has anyone worked with18:29
cornfeed toshiba laptops and acpid??18:29
jhutchins_wkF3Speech: dmesg or hald logs would be whre to look.18:29
jhutchins_wkF3Speech: I would still say hardware is the most likely issue.18:29
cornfeedF3Speech: try a boot flag of acpi=off18:29
cornfeedF3Speech: i had the same issues...drove me nuts for a month18:29
F3Speechcornfeed: i did read that few hours ago18:30
F3Speechcornfeed: tried it and my usb wifi wouldnt connect18:30
jhutchins_wkF3Speech: What are the chances of getting an actual internal wifi card, or going to wired?18:31
F3Speechi want to find where the server sets stuff like blank screen and any idle conditions try turn them off18:31
F3Speechjhutchins_wk: none really... well actuall guess now its setup i could move it18:32
cornfeedF3Speech: hmmm you could try killing acpid18:32
fegohi all, any idea in which package i can find the "helvetica-medium" font?18:33
F3Speechjhutchins_wk: it has a internal card, i dont dont have the  cable available at my desk18:33
F3Speechjhutchins_wk: and i think my router is full, if i remember i think thats why i went wifi18:33
F3Speechjhut i guess i could give the server my lan cable and ill take the wifi lol18:33
F3Speechcornfeed: how would i do that18:34
cornfeedF3Speech: sudo service acpid stop (i think, i only use ubuntu in a few offices)18:34
cornfeedpretty sure though18:34
cornfeedthen use "pidof acpid" to make sure18:35
F3Speechit seemed to stop ok18:35
F3Speechi dont have pidof installed18:36
kelvinellahi, can ubuntu be installed in macbook pro or macbook air?18:36
F3Speechnetwork is still up so that a bonus18:36
cornfeedkelvinella: yes18:36
MonkeyDust!mac | kelvinella start here18:36
ubottukelvinella start here: For help on installing and using Ubuntu on a mac, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MactelSupportTeam/CommunityHelpPages18:36
kelvinellabecause i am thinking to buy a laptop18:36
Muphridfego: if helvetica is not free software then it isnt in any package, you have to download it manually18:36
F3Speechcornfeed: ill leave it alone see what happens18:36
cornfeedkelvinella: but from what I hear, its a pain18:36
kelvinellahow painful?18:37
stercorHow do I fix :connect to host xxxxxxxx port 22: No route to host?18:37
MonkeyDuststercor  install openssh-server and/or openssh-client18:37
devlosstercor ssh??18:37
kelvinellawhich brand has the same laptop quality like the apple?18:37
stercorI wish to scp. It worked last night.18:38
MonkeyDuststercor  scp uses ssh too18:38
kelvinellai am thinking to get asus or thinkpad, but thinkpad is too ugly18:38
kelvinellaasus has so many model, dont know which one to choose from18:38
F3Speechkelvinella: i like asus18:38
d1zzyhi, this may e an FAQ although I'm unable to find an answer on the internet. I'm using 12.04, clean, no unstable packages, and I can't install all the deps needed by the steam beta client. I successfully installed ia32-libs but currently I'm unable to install zenity:i38618:38
fegohi all, any idea in which package i can find the "helvetica-medium" font?18:39
d1zzyits zenity-common:i386 for example can't be found by apt-get install for some reason18:39
kelvinellai dont know why asus has like 30 different models on their site18:39
sonikhaving problems disabling Ctrl to show mouse option, it's not in the "Mouse Settings" window on 12.10?18:40
F3Speechd1zzy : the package name is prob just zenity-common?18:40
stercoropenssh-server and openssh-client are at newest versions at both ends18:40
d1zzyzenity-common works (it installs the amd64 version), but zenity-common:i386 doesn't (it's needed by zenity:i386 which is needed by the steam beta client)18:41
MonkeyDuststercor  then maybe it's blocked by iptables?18:41
F3Speechd1zzy: you have 64bit install?18:41
devlosstector does the machine you are connecting to have them installes18:41
stercorIt worked last night.18:41
F3Speechd1zzy: you might just have to add the 32bit repos then18:41
=== Bladerunner is now known as Bladerunn
stercordevlos: latest versions18:41
d1zzyF3Speech: I think it should be part of the main repos already, as I was able to install many :i386 packages already with ia32-libs18:42
d1zzyF3Speech: are there any other repos to add?18:42
stercorMonkeyDust: it worked last night.  That's the reason I'm stumped... :-(18:42
F3Speechd1zzy: lemmi have a lookas i was planning to install this myself soon18:42
MonkeyDuststercor  i had that too, with my headless remote PC - restart of that PC was required, never solved the issue18:43
d1zzyI can find zenity-common:i386 in 12.04 on packages.ubuntu.com, not sure why it's not available with apt-get18:43
F3Speechd1zzy: is there a tutioral your following?18:43
ofcanhow can I view command line history from a certain date?18:44
d1zzylots of unsatisfied :i386 deps when you dpkg -i steam_latest.deb and I resolved most of them with apt-get install ia32-libs18:44
F3Speechd1zzy: this video tutorial is 2 days old might be worth a look http://revision3.com/osalt/install-steam-linux18:45
milamberstercor: are you trying to reach the same box from the same location? (i.e. at home, laptop to server)?18:45
stercormilamber: yes.  Netbook to desktop.  /etc/hosts has both machines.18:46
stercorMonkeyDust: did the restart work?18:47
milamberstercor: can you ping your local router from the netbook? and have you restarted the server at all?18:47
MonkeyDuststercor  yes, but i found no way to prevent it18:48
stercormilamber: I can ping the router.  It looks like a restart might help.18:48
* stercor goes to restart both machines. brb18:48
MonkeyDuststercor  mind: the remote pc had debian running on it18:48
milamberstercor: you shouldn't have to18:49
EaglemanWhere do you suggest placing important key and crt files for for example openvpn and apache2 ssl ??18:49
milamberstercor: have you verified the ip of the server?18:49
d1zzyF3Speech: is there a way to get a complete list of all packages (and their architectures) for the "main", "restricted", "universe", "multiverse" repos?18:49
stercormilamber: OK. Where to from here.  I'm on 12.10 and it reports internal errors.  That recommends a restart.18:50
stercormilamber: Yes, the addresses are good.  I even tried the IP addresses.18:50
F3Speechd1zzy: yes, where is is... maybe one of the more experianced members can remember18:50
milamberstercor: we'll need more details then, from what i gather you are trying to scp from a netbook to a home server behind a residential/home router/firewall and getting the error 'no route to host'    what are the internal errors you are talking about?18:51
EaglemanWhere do you suggest placing important key and crt files for for example openvpn and apache2 ssl, currently i have them in each applications /etc/ folder but since they are also backupped by rsnapshot and then copied to a windows disk in a rar file, the key and crt files are accessible, which is not so secure18:51
stercormilamber: unrelated...18:51
F3Speechd1zzy: http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/ here looks like a good start though18:52
milamberstercor: if you think you need to restart go ahead and do that18:53
stercormilamber: that seems heavy-handed, but it's the only option I see...18:53
StormKinghello all18:54
milamberstercor: what router is it and what command are you issuing (you can obviously remove specific ips)18:54

Greg8823Muphrid: a list of playback hardware devices19:03
atlefofcan, have you set HISTTIMEFORMAT19:04

DominikST95hey folks, I have a strange bug in Skype...if I try to play sound through my speakers, it starts to cackle extremly...Any help(I guess it has something to do with pulseaudio)19:09
Churchnicholas: imho it depends if you really have gnome classic or gnome fallback option19:10
Greg8823Muphrid: Digital is selected in sound settings and im using a pair of saitek GH30 headphones to test19:10
Churchnicholas: as in in first case it might be somewhere in metacity options in control panel IIRC, in second .. maybe some gconf/dconf settings19:11
nicholashow do i find the difference. i did "apt-get install gnome-shell" and then gnome classic19:11
MuphridGreg8823: you should select analog if you are connected to a headphone jack, digital is for hdmi or spdif19:11

=== help is now known as Guest68822
bekksaberrant: You have to upgrade to 12.04 first, then to 12.10 - usually, on a server, you want to stay on LTS, aka 12.0419:12

MonkeyDust!text | kylescottmcgill19:13
ubottukylescottmcgill: To start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode19:13
mrg_i tried root recovery terminal and to delete xconf ....but no file like that exists19:13
MuphridGreg8823: what do you mean "both" jacks?19:13
bekksaberrant: No. 10.04 -> 12.04 as I said19:13
