KI4ROAnyone know how to turn on the voice over feature in an IPOD thru UBUNTU?00:00
KaRmAcan anyone tell me why my proftpd server on ubuntu would disconnect for no apparent reason? I am able to log right back in and I have all the timeouts set really high...00:00
paco1hello masters!00:00
KaRmApaco1, hello slave00:01
makutoWhen I attempt to execute the .desktop file (using the dash) nothing happens. The command I'm trying to get it to run is 'xterm -e "~/path/to/executable" ' (without single quotes)00:01
jribmakuto: what's in your .desktop file?00:01
makutojrib: http://pastebin.com/NHCuHesp00:02
ActionParsnipKaRmA: is the service running?00:02
makutoThe command doesn't work in the terminal either, so I think that's the main problem00:03
dcopehey all, i have ubuntu 12.04 on a macbook air. when i close the lid the apple stays on. any fix?00:03
KaRmAActionParsnip, yea..... my problem is it disconnects after a minute or so even though the proftpd config file tells it not to .00:03
jribmakuto: heh, try gnome-terminal instead of xterm00:03
KaRmAActionParsnip, sending 'NOOP' or keep alive, keeps it alive....00:03
KaRmAso I guess ill just have to do that :-\ not sure why though.00:03
KaRmAmy ssh never disconnects00:04
M13hello00:04
M13is there anyone here that is good with syslinux?00:04
paco1i have a question: if it exist a tool to analyse the session of a user?00:04
LinSvenHow do I delete/purge old kernels? I was asked for homework to write a one line cmd that gets rid of all the old ones.00:05
makutojrib: That worked better, but I get this error: Failed to execute child process "~/Development/gameDev/oneDayTilemap/tileEditor" (No such file or directory)00:06
jribmakuto: don't use ~00:06
makutojrib: Alright. Also, I found it isn't where I thought it was, dumb mistake :)00:06
KI4ROLinSven, OS-uninstaller does the trick00:06
ActionParsnipLinSven:  dpkg -l | awk {'print $2'} | grep linux-image | grep -v `uname -r` | grep -v linux-image-generic        lists the excess kernels00:07
jribmakuto: also, you might look more into .desktop files. Some have "Terminal=true" and that may be more correct to use00:08
=== naughx is now known as Naughx
LinSvenActionParsnip thank you. I was looking at this cmd but yours seems better. sudo apt-get remove $(dpkg -l|egrep '^ii  linux-(im|he)'|awk '{print $2}'|grep -v `uname -r`)00:08
ActionParsnipLinSven: you can use backticks to then use it with apt-get00:08
jribmakuto: run this for some examples (and I'd also check the spec online): grep -r -i terminal=true /usr/share/applications00:09
ActionParsnipLinSven:  sudo apt-get --purge remove `dpkg -l | awk {'print $2'} | grep linux-image | grep -v `uname -r` | grep -v linux-image-generic`00:09
makutojrib: Ah, that did the trick! Thanks tons!00:09
LinSvenOh thx. Really new to this stuff. Installed Ubuntu today for a class we are having.00:09
LinSvenMust say I like the idea of free software. Not because of the money but the idea.00:10
ActionParsnipLinSven: you have the knowledge (awk, grep. etc) That's all your tutor is really wanting you to demonstrate00:10
jonjoActionParsnip: ever had 'locked' when transfering a movie and trying to play it?00:10
makutojrib: And I understand the grep command, brilliant way to show me that. Thanks a lot!00:10
Ben64I don't use it for the money or the idea, I use it because it works better for me00:10
LinSvenActionParsnip yeah that was the idea I think.00:10
ActionParsnipjonjo: no, I use my sftp server and transfer that way.00:10
teslas_moustachegot it. The files in that directory were all empty anyway. I don't know why it wasn't created automatically, but my files should be popping up in /tmp/restore pretty soon. Thanks for the deceptively simple advice.00:11
PDunAnyone know of a way to set up a proxy to be able to view the data that is sent through it?00:12
=== ken is now known as Guest33583
FLeiXiuSMy ubiquity success commands don't execute at the end even though syntactically it's correct.  Was this removed in 12.04 installs?00:13
jonjoPDun have you read the tsocks man pages?00:14
brightsparkPDun, check out the bridged mode provided by ettercap.  Haven't used it myself so can't be of much further assistance unfortunately.00:14
M13I have a Question: 'make menuconfig' is not working00:14
tompahow do i know which driver i should use? I have a Asus 560ti and have 4 different options to choose between ("additional drivers" software)00:14
M13i get a error : libtinfo.so.1 is not found00:15
M13please help00:15
* Naughx gives LinSven a warm welcome to the GNU/Linux world :D00:15

Funkyoh =(00:18
devnull_have you searched google yet00:19
brightsparkIs the Cinnamon DE in the repos for the new ubuntu?00:19
OrphisHow can I resolve windows machine hostname from ubuntu? I've tried installing winbind and adding wins to nsswitch.conf (just after files) and it's not working00:19
OrphisHow can I troubleshoot it?00:19
devnull_brightspark idk did you check ?00:19
brightsparkI checked on mine- it's not in the repos on Maverick, but that doesn't mean much.00:20
devnull_well why don't you search the repos for 12.10 then00:20
raphytaffycan anyone walk me through installing C/C++ compiler tools for netbeans IDE?00:21
raphytaffyi have netbeans installed, i just need to install the compiler tools00:21
ActionParsnipbrightspark: there are no repos for Maverick00:21
KyleYankanHey #ubuntu, I have a question. I'm trying to connect my Canon 50D (which doesn't support USB Mass storage) to get some images off. Shotwell sees the camera, but says it's locked by another application. No other image applications are open. I do get a weird error wehn I plug the camera in, with no applications open: "Error initializing camera: -1: Unspecified error"00:21
bentinatahello00:21
brightsparkdevnull_, does that involve fiddling with the sources file?00:22
brightsparkActionParsnip, yep; I noticed that.00:22
bentinata#ubuntu00:22
brightsparkActionParsnip, however, aptitude still lists packages for download.00:22
bentinatak00:22
devnull_brightspark, i would suppose since you are on IRC you also have web access ?00:22

hydruidI am having issues running a bash script, when I wget it from Github it won't run, but when I manually create it everything is fine......what causes that?00:23
usr13KyleYankan: Maybe just take the memory card out and use a card reader?00:23
devnull_hydruid, is it executable ?00:23
=== Vobine is now known as Psychoholic
brightsparkdevnull_, correct00:24
hydruiddevnull_: it's a .sh00:24
devnull_brightspark, then search ubuntus repo for the latest version and see if it is a listed package00:24
Ben64cinnamon isn't in ubuntu00:24
hydruiddevnull_: both methods I did a chmod +x script.sh before trying to run it00:24
KyleYankanusr13: No card readers00:24
devnull_hydruid, what do you mean by ... wont run00:24
usr13KyleYankan: I don't know about you, but my laptop and desktop both have build-in card readers.00:25
hydruiddevnull_: it comes up with a random error, seems like it's saying there was a line error after a space00:25
KyleYankanusr13: My laptop has a SD card reader, but the 50D takes CF cards.00:25
KyleYankanPro cameras usually do :-/00:25
NaughxMaybe it's already mounted somewhere else.00:25
devnull_hydruid, okay ... so it does run ... it just has an error00:25
usr13KyleYankan: Well, card readers are pretty low priced, probably abuot $10 or less.00:25
bluebeat09hey! can someone help me plz?00:26
hydruiddevnull_: yes I can pastebin it if you want00:26
devnull_hydruid, no thank you00:26
usr13KyleYankan: When I bought my digital camera, that was the first thing I ordered and have kept it in my camera bag since then so that I always have easy access.00:26
hydruiddevnull_: this is the error it gives, https://raw.github.com/hydruid/zenoss/master/install.sh00:27
hydruidoops00:27
KyleYankanusr13: Yeah, I just normally use a windows computer, but I'm currently away from any of my regular equipment00:27
KyleYankanI personally don't find a card reader necessary for my work00:27
hydruiddevnull_: this is the error it gives:  Syntax error: end of file unexpected (expecting "then")00:27
usr13KyleYankan: Well, doesn't matter if it's windows or linux.00:27
=== Vobine is now known as Psychoholic
KyleYankanusr13: The camera works fine on windows. I'm booting into it now to get the images I need00:28
bluebeat09can i restore ubuntu 12.10? like if it was just installed?00:28
usr13KyleYankan: There is always the possibility that some setting on the camera is blocking it.  Hard to tell from where I sit :)00:28
jonjothis ubuntu / andoid isb link sucks00:28
devnull_bluebeat09, restore what ?00:28
evbogueAsk #Ubuntu: What's the first app you install on a fresh Ubuntu install?00:28
dr_willisbluebeat09: user settings are easy to restore. system can be harder00:28
ActionParsnipbluebeat09: you can remove the configs in $HOME and get vanilla settings for apps, the things outside that will need a little more work00:28
devnull_jonjo ...   what are you trugudsknidgjj to say00:29
usr13KyleYankan: There is probably a way to access it, I would guess it is something simple, but without more info, we wouldn't be able to tell what it is.00:29
dr_willisevbogue:  poll in #ubuntu-offtopic00:29
ActionParsnipjonjo: its the single storage thing. its a bit weird00:29
brightsparkdevnull_, ok thanks.  finally found it.00:29
ActionParsnipjonjo: I just transfer data over the wifi and its fine00:29
devnull_hydruid, i guess you are going to learn about bash scripting today00:29
KyleYankanusr13: Not sure what to tell you. There's no lock on the camera. I'll do some more googling00:29
jonjoits too slow00:30
devnull_brightspark, yea ... they have the repos online so you can check that kind of stuff00:30
bluebeat09i installed gnome shell from u soft center, then i deleted it from there too, but now when i power up in the login screen is different, i just want to go back to the way it was00:30
jonjowhat wifi speeds do you get ActionParsnip ?00:30
bluebeat09i know its not a problem+00:30
bluebeat09but i would like to do that00:30
bluebeat09i cant seem to get it right+00:30
ActionParsnipjonjo: not sure exactly, moves fast enough00:30
devnull_bluebeat ... ps ax | grep gdm  ... is gdm listed or lightgdm ?00:30
nimocan you uninstall pulse and still get audio ?00:30
hydruiddevnull_: I think i just figured it out, looks like it added the dreaded ^M at the end of each line, removed them and that resovled the issue00:30
usr13KyleYankan: YOu could bring up a terminal and type   tail -f /var/log/syslog  and hit enter and watch as you  plug it in to see what clues you get.00:30
tompaHello, i just updated my graphic drivers for my Asus Gtx 560ti card. But now after reboot everything lost its sharp. It feels like i run everything in a lower resolution (lower than 1080) even if system settings/display says it is in 1080p ... Someone who knows what to do?00:30
dr_willisbluebeat09:  sudo dpkg-reconfigure lghtdm00:30
brightsparkdevnull_, I thought I might have to edit my sources and have aptitude pull the list that way.  Glad I didn't have to.00:31
devnull_hydruid, that would do it00:31
dr_willisbluebeat09:  sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm00:31
ActionParsniptompa: change refresh rate maybe00:31
bluebeat09ok will try this  sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm00:31
KyleYankanGot it. Had to rub gphoto2 from the command line. It seemed that the connected would rapidly disconnect after connecting. So executing a `gphoto2 --get-all-files00:31
KyleYankan` as soon as connected got them00:31
=== chiluk_away is now known as chiluk
usr13KyleYankan: Ok, there you go.00:32
devnull_tompa .. what isn't sharp anymore ... text ? everything ?00:32
jonjomaybe it is the flash commit speed on the nexus which is the problem00:32
KyleYankanThanks00:33
tompaactionparsnip where can i find refresh rate options?00:33
usr13KyleYankan: I've had my camera for YEARS and never plugged it into a computer.  I've always just pulled out the chip and put in the PC.00:33
Ben64tompa: nvidia-settings00:33
tompadevnull_ Yeah i think everything is more blurry00:33
brightsparkActionParsnip, I just cleaned the package cache but they didn't actually disappear00:33
dcopeis there a way to mimic os x mouse settings on ubuntu?00:34
devnull_dcope what are OS X's mouse settings ?00:34
devnull_ive never used it00:34
Naughx@Usr; SD / SDHC are so much better :P00:34
usr13dcope: Not sure why you would want to.00:35
dcopedevnull_: no idea, but i've put mouse sensitivy and acceleration at 0 and my mouse is still flinging around the screen00:35
Ben64devnull_: you hover over the icon and if OSX wants you to, it'll launch00:35
dcopei just need to slow it down00:35
bluebeat09i dont remeber who gave me the code but it worked+00:35
bluebeat09thx a lot00:35
brightsparkdcope, is there a different tab for touchpad vs mouse?00:35
devnull_bluebeat09, <dr_willis>00:35
dcopebrightspark: no, just a different "Input" dropdown. i'm using xfce00:36
bluebeat09right. thx dr_willis, simple solution00:36
brightsparkdcope, ah sorry.  good luck.00:36
devnull_dcope,   usb/ps2 ?00:38
dcopedevnull_: bluetooth00:38
=== Vobine is now known as Psychoholic
tompadevnull_ ben64 actionparsnip i changed resolution and changed it back and then it worked ... thank you!00:39
devnull_dcope, oh .. i have never used any bluetooth devices ... not sure if there are any issues with them00:39
devnull_tompa, glad it works00:39
devnull_dcope its possible you have to change the sensitivity somewhere else00:40
dcopeinteresting00:40
devnull_or maybe xfce isn't setting it correctly ... havent used xfce in a lil while00:41
Awolfhello00:41
dcopedevnull_: it's interesting because it works with the trackpad but not the mouse00:41
dcopeeven when i specifcally set it for the mouse00:41
Awolfi have ubuntu 12.-04 installed on my laptop and i want to install win 7 for dual boot i've partitioned my hd and set the partition type to hspf/ntfs 0x0700:42
Awolfbut when i enter win7 installation it stops at startup and gives me the following error00:42
devnull_dcope, it is bypassing those settings ... maybe it needs to be adjusted at the X level00:42
Awolf0xc00000e900:43
=== Vobine is now known as Psychoholic
Ben64Awolf: you should install windows first00:43
devnull_yea windows 7 doesn't play nice nice with partitions especially with linux on themn00:44
Awolfis there no turn around ?00:44
Awolfit took me a real long while to install linux and its updates :@00:44
tentaclemoosehowdy folks, has anyone here had problems with 2wire(ATT) routers and linux?00:45
tentaclemoose*ubuntu00:45
Ben64Awolf: i don't know that much about windows7 install00:46
Ben64i just know it doesn't like linux at all00:46
OrphisHow can I resolve windows hostnames from linux?00:46
devnull_Orphis, did you check google00:46
NaughxYes, windows bootloader overwrites grub...00:46
Orphisdevnull_: Yes, and it doesn't work00:46
ActionParsnipAwolf: what does the stop code mean?00:47
Awolfi dont mind the overwriting section i can refix grub with boot-repair00:47
Orphisdevnull_: I've installed winbind and added wins to nsswitch and names can't be resolved00:47
NaughxI know, but it's just annying.00:47
ActionParsnipOrphis: could use hosts file in windows. I've configured Ubuntu to state its hostname to the router but i can't remember00:47
Orphisdevnull_: My Ubuntu machine can be resolved from windows though00:47
devnull_samba ?00:48
OrphisActionParsnip: I haven't put anything in the hosts file, it's 2012, we can autodiscover most things now00:48
ActionParsnipOrphis: in /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf00:48
Orphisdevnull_: Yes, samba is installed with nmbd to provide a name00:48
ActionParsnipOrphis: Its actually 2013.00:48
OrphisActionParsnip: I'm lagging a little :P00:48
ActionParsnipOrphis: change: send host-name "<hostname>"00:49
NaughxYes... 8 days now...00:49
ActionParsnipOrphis: to:   send host-name "actualsystemnamehere"00:49
AwolfActionParsnip windows disk cant find the partitioned section for it i guess00:49
ActionParsnipOrphis: if you're going to have an attitude about it, at least be precise00:49
Awolfeven though i did partition it into ntfs form and set it to bootable00:49

{messedupmatthewcan someone help me  with my broadcom driver for my wifi?00:50
ActionParsnipOrphis: if the server is on static IP then hosts file is dead handy, saves having to quiz the router for something which will neve change00:50
OrphisActionParsnip: Resolving the name from elsewhere in the network works just fine, why would changing the dhclient.conf config change anything?00:50
devnull_idk matthew how about some more details ...00:50
FLeiXiuSAnyone familiar with preseeds and late/success commands for 12.04?00:51
OrphisI'm trying to resolve a name from the linux box, there's no dhcp config there00:51
devnull_awolf is the partition logical ?00:51
Orphis(well, there is, but it isn't used for resolving winbind names really)00:51
devnull_i think windows will only install to a primary partition00:51
{messedupmatthewi am xubuntu and it says to go to the desktop menu system administration additional drivers and i cant find it?00:51
devnull_{messedupmatthew,  i don't know what software xubuntu comes with ... look for jockey in the software center00:52
{messedupmatthewjockey ok will do00:52
Awolfhow can i know if it is primary or logical00:52
Awolf?00:53
ActionParsnipOrphis: it makes the Ubuntu OS publish it's name to the router, if you look now it will only show an IP and a Mac address00:53
devnull_what version of ubuntu matthew ?00:53
Awolflet me try something now00:53
{messedupmatthew12.04 i believe00:53
devnull_awolf ... well then i think you better read through some tutorials first00:53
Awolfbe right back00:53
ActionParsnipAwolf: you will need to delete the partition then convert to extended, then make logical partitions00:53
OrphisActionParsnip: I know what it does, and it's not used at all for netbios / bonjour (avahi) protocols at all00:53
Awolfok ill do that now00:53
OrphisActionParsnip: It's mostly used if you want the dhcp server to identify machines on the network with names instead of mac address00:54
devnull_i would imagine windows wants a primary partition because bootloaders have to be on primary partitions00:54
Awolfany suggestions as to what program i should use to partition correctly00:55
Awolf?00:55
ActionParsnipAwolf: gparted00:55
devnull_gparted00:55
devnull_Awolf, i would read some tutorials on installing windows7 after ubuntu is already installed ... you will lose grub00:55
ActionParsnipOrphis: by default, the name of the Ubuntu system will not be in your router. you need to make that change and reboot (or maybe just restart networking)00:56
Awolfdevnull, I can refix grub by re-inserting the live cd and installing and running boot-repair from the live cd00:56
OrphisActionParsnip: The name doesn't need to be in the router!!! I'm not trying to have DNS resolves, but wins!00:56
ActionParsnipAwolf: you will lose grub after installing Windows, but you can boot to Ubuntu liveCD and reinstate Grub to the MBR00:56
rk0nWhen using unity, the sound manager allows me to set the sound beyond 100%, but with KDE I don't have that option. And the sound is very low, any idea how to access that extra volume with KDE?00:57
devnull_awolf  ... that isnt the problem its your partitioning .. you should probably read up on what windows installer is looking for00:57
ActionParsniprk0n: tried in alsamixer?00:57
ActionParsnipOrphis: no idea then00:57
ActionParsnipOrphis: maybe others can advise00:57
rk0nActionParsnip, yes, everything in alsamixer is 100%00:58
NaughxYes, this is easy with grub-install00:58
devnull_ug  kde00:58
Awolfdevnull_ will do00:58
ActionParsniprk0n: tried in #kubuntu as well?00:58
devnull_awolf .. i just don't know what its requirements are ... i wish i could help00:59

memandHey guys, I think I did somthing bad. I was messing around in the tty1 terminal (I don't know what it is actually called) and was trying to get back to my graphical interface. I ended up rebooting the machine, but now when I type my password at login it just briefly flashes some terminal that I dont have time to read and sends me back to the login screen01:08
dr_williswabash:  there no opensoueced flash that ive seen that works well01:08
Riley88yes its not open flash its just adobe flash player01:08
memandnow I'm stuck in tty mode :/01:08
Riley88gnash was kind of good01:08
Riley88is that even still updated01:08
devnull_memand, what did you do to make it reboot .... alt+ctrl+delete ?01:08
dr_willisthere are flash downloader tools and flash replacer extensions you can use in the browsers for videos on some sites01:09
devnull_i think if you install chrome it will install its own flash plugin01:09
memanddevnull: yes01:09
wabashdevnull_: dr_willis, Riley88: thank you. So long story short -- to get flash on Ubuntu, I can find it in one of the repositories? I.E., I don't have to go to adobe's site directly?01:09
devnull_memand, alt+ctrl+ F7 to get back to X01:10
Riley88yes wabash01:10
devnull_wabash, no .. the package will get flash from adobe for you i believe01:10
dr_williswabash:  i said warlier. the tools in the repos download it from adobe for you01:10
dr_willis!flash01:10
ubottuTo install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash - See also  !Restricted and !Gnash01:10
KI4ROAnyone know how to turn on the voice over feature in an IPOD thru UBUNTU?01:10
TheLordOfTimewabash, the package in the repositories will download it from adobe and install it, since the source for  flash is closed the package can't contain the actual code (but it can download it)01:10
devnull_KI4RO, i don't even know what that is01:11
memanddevnull: nice thanks, I did not know that, but it will still not log me in for some reason01:11
TheLordOfTimedevnull_, if you have no idea, don't respond, just a tidbit of advice ;)01:11
KI4ROdevnull_, Okay LOL01:11
dr_willisubuntu cant even include the flash download due to silly licensing01:11
memanddevnull_: nice thanks, I did not know that, but it will still not log me in for some reason01:11
Riley88what are u talking about its in the installer01:11
TheLordOfTimeKI4RO, i've never heard of that being done, but someone else may be able to.  Patience might be needed before you get an answer though.01:11
wabashTheLordOfTime: Interesting. Does it do a gpg check?01:12
TheLordOfTimewabash, uh, what?01:12
KI4ROTheLordOfTime, Thanks...been asking all throughout the day...we'll see01:12
TheLordOfTimewabash, i'm going to let dr_willis explain the package if you have such questions, apparently i need to poke something up in priority somewhere.01:12
* TheLordOfTime disappears for a bit01:12
devnull_TheLordOfTime, maybe i want to know what it is so i can try and help01:12
wabashdr_willis: ?01:13
dr_williswabash: ??01:13
devnull_wabash, just install the package01:13
Riley88for real lol01:13
Riley88sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin01:14
Riley88or is it just flashplugin01:14
devnull_KI4RO, the last i checked ... almost 2 years ago ... IPODs were a pain to deal with01:14

KI4ROdevnull_, Still are LOL01:15
devnull_i don't understand what you are trying to do though01:15
KI4ROdevnull_, You asking me?01:16
devnull_yea01:16
KI4ROdevnull_, I have the IPOD shuffle and there is a feature available called voice over that will announce the name of the artist and the song once you get it turned on01:17
devnull_so what does that have to do with ubuntu ?01:17
demoniohi all I have a problem01:17
devnull_KI4RO, okay .. i think i gotcha01:17
demonioi have got a double boot01:18
KI4ROdevnull_, I'm asking if anyone has found an Ubuntu app that might allow you to access and turn on the feature01:18
devnull_KI4RO, your trying to set settings on your device from Ubuntu ?01:18
KI4ROdevnull_, Yep01:18
devnull_there is a program .. i can't remember what it is called that will let you rip music off of an IPOD .. it might be able to communicate with it01:18
demoniolinux and win7, but linux is the first to start, how can i change that?01:18
KI4ROdevnull_, I have ITuNES7 running under WINE but apparently WINE can't "see" any USB devices01:19
tarelerulzAny of you have any know how when it comes to MiroHDHC card? I have it hooked in with USB card reader and SD card adapter pluged into it .  It says 10mbs ,but it doing 7-8mb .   What could be problem01:19
HonestAbechange the menu.list in grub demonio01:19
HonestAbeone sec01:19
devnull_KI4RO, it might not be that it can't see the device it might be that the device is unrecognized to linux01:19
HonestAbethat's probably not the actual name of the file01:19
dr_willisbbl01:19
KI4ROdevnull_, Either way, I can't get there from here LOL.   BTW there is a program called gtkpod, but it doesn't seem able to access the features of the IPOD01:20
ElectricPrismIs anyone here up and running from the Ubuntu Mini install? (38mbs) ?01:20
ActionParsnipElectricPrism: indeed01:20
devnull_KI4RO, thats the program ... you may want to check wine information to setup usb correctly ...01:21
demoniois anyone here that can help me to set grub?01:21
demonioor mbr01:21
devnull_tarelerulz, so you are only 2mbs off ?01:21
huttalaDoes anyone have any idea how I can get the GUI working for my ubuntu 12.04 installation on a AMD APU laptop? I keep getting "Error no screens found" all the time, even tho I've installed the ATI drivers and they seem to be working01:21
ActionParsnipdevnull_: thats what I thought....01:22
KI4ROdevnull_, I have and it seems to be a known issues...they suggest setting Virtual box or some such01:22
devnull_demonio, someone is currently answering you01:22
ElectricPrismActionParsnip: how was the setup, I'm running arch on my laptop and Sabayon my desktop and I'm thinking of moving to Ubuntu Mini because of the Software Center, and debian packaging system01:22
huttalaThe laptop is dualGPU, I guess that's what messes things up.. :/01:22
tarelerulzWell, Yes is that normal ? Do you have round down ?  Like hard drive says 10 gb and you actually have 9gb01:22
devnull_KI4RO, well you will need to install windows inside of virtualbox ... wine isn't always the best solution ... im not sure if it can connect directly to USB or it still goes through the normal linux way01:22
demoniodevnull_ thanks my problem is that i had install win7 and ubuntu but in the dual boot ubuntu is the first to start, so can i make in a way that is win7 to start first?01:23
ActionParsnipElectricPrism: fine, ran the installer then ran:  sudo apt-get install fluxbox slim    and went for a shower01:23
thoonaiaverage_drifter: hey01:23
thoonai:)01:23
devnull_demonio, yes you were already answered .. scroll up01:23
HonestAbedemonio, my current machine doesn't have a menu.lst, but go to /boot/grub/menu.lst and just move the win7 entry to the top of the list01:23
ElectricPrismcool01:23
KI4ROdevnull_, Supposedly it can "see" the usb ports directly (virtualbox)01:23
devnull_KI4RO, yes virtual box can .. but i think that is because it has a kernel module ?   i think if linux doesn't see the usb device then wine won't01:24
demonioHonestAbe ok i'll try immediately01:24
HonestAbewait!01:24
devnull_demonio, or set the default boot number to the windows number01:24
HonestAbebefore you do, go read the documentation, i'd feel awful if you followed my paraphrased directions and your computer caught fire or melted or something awful01:24
devnull_lol01:25
Riley88im pretty sure u can do that in bios01:25
KI4ROdevnull_, Linux can see it...rhythmbox, banshee and gtkpod all see it just fine01:25
Riley88set the boot order01:25
demonioHonestAbe i cant find menu.lst01:25
devnull_KI4RO, im not sure how that works ... they might be accessing it in a special way .. which wine can't ?01:25
demoniodevnull_ where have i to go for make that?01:26
KI4ROdevnull_, Nor am I01:26
devnull_demonio, where honestabe told you01:26
ActionParsnipdemonio: its not used now, ubuntu uses grub201:26
devnull_KI4RO, i wish i knew more about how that worked but im strapped for ideas ... lets see what google has to say01:26
devnull_KI4RO, seems like that is a popular topic ... itunes(wine) cant recognize ipod ... but it looks like people have fixed it01:27

aaasActionParsnip no, but ill try that tonight01:29
demoniodevnull_ HonstAbe I find it but i don't know what i have to change.. so can you help me?01:30
devnull_KI4RO, seems like a VM is the answer because it can directly access USB01:30
demoniomy win7 is latest01:30
KI4ROdevnull_, Yep, haven't had the nerve to try that yet LOL01:30
devnull_as long as you don't mind sitting through a windows install01:30
devnull_demonio, what version of ubuntu ?01:31
KI4ROdevnull_, A windows install?01:31
demonio12.1001:31
devnull_KI4RO, yes .. VM means virtual machine .. you will need to install windows inside of it ... it is not an emulator01:32
ActionParsnipKI4RO: if you go for virtualbox, you'll need the one from the virtualbox site (or PPA)01:32
devnull_you will literaly be booting windows inside of a virtual machine01:32
ActionParsnipKI4RO: the one in the ubuntu repos does not have raw usb access01:32
devnull_ActionParsnip, does that come with a kernel module ?01:32
KI4ROdevnull_, Oh goodie!!  Don't have a Windows disk here01:32
devnull_lol   even better01:32
ActionParsnipdevnull_: no idea, i'd imagine so but i only know the difference in that sense. easier to not buy apple rubbish :)01:33
devnull_ActionParsnip, yea im with ya on that .. i don't like proprietary things01:33
ActionParsnipdevnull_: i don't mind proprietary, i just like things to work01:34
devnull_but then again i don't "sync" things either ... usb mass storage is my friend01:34

devnull_KI4RO, no prob i understand ... ipods do their job well as a player ... your just screwed if you don't have itunes01:34
devnull_demonio, do a search on google ... you will find out how to do it01:35

thalibthats what ubuntu gave to install through the usb stick01:55
devsfan1830Intel Corporation Centrino Ultimate-N 6300  (rev 35)01:56
thalibi thought everyone used that01:56
ActionParsnipthalib: yes, if you open the USB stick in windows it will offer you wubi01:56
devnull_i would say ... only use wubi if you have to ... not sure if you have to or not01:56
thalibi dont know anything about linux01:56
devnull_devsfan1830, thanks01:56
ActionParsnipthalib: oh hell no, wubi is nasty01:56
thalibhow else can i install it01:56
ActionParsnipthalib: I recommend you run a chkdsk on your NTFS partition to ensure it is healthy01:56
ActionParsnipthalib: boot to the USB stick and you can install Ubuntu to its own partition01:57
ActionParsnipthalib: I recommend you use add/remove programs to pull wubi off01:57
devnull_yea ... linux in windows is a ungodly idea01:57
ActionParsnipthalib: You can single boot Ubuntu on its own, as the sole OS. There would be no Windows OS to run the installer from, would there?01:57
TomyLobowhat do kde and gnome generally do when they run programs without a console?01:57
TomyLobojust nohup or something else?01:58

ItsTheSourceyea adjusting headphone volume in alsamixer works fine. Any way to lock master and headphone volumes?02:06

thalibi did02:08
thalibit said no bad sectors02:08
thalibnow what do i have to do02:08
ActionParsnipthalib: use the GUI and select to fix sectors and such, you will be asked to reboot02:08
ActionParsnipthalib: did you uninstall wubi?02:09
thalibyes02:09
ActionParsnipthalib: ok, boot to the usb stick you made, resize your NTFS and install to the freed space02:09
ItsTheSource...that way the volume slider actually works for my headphone jack. If I can tie them together so they raise and lower together problem solved...02:09
thalibhow do i do that02:09
devnull_ItsTheSource, you don't really want that i don't think02:10
thalibhow do i for starters boot to the usb stick02:10
thaliband also i just want to tell the ubuntu that was downloaded has wubi on the usb stick02:10
thalibshould i delete that02:10
thalibtoo02:10
devnull_thalib, yea they all do02:10
ItsTheSourceCan you propose an alternate solution? I can launch alsamixer and modify the level for the headphones but that's a pain...02:11
HonestAbedevnull_ funny enough, he may not actually want it, but I sure as hell do02:11
ActionParsnipthalib: have the USB you made with the ISO in the port, select it as the boot device and you will get a live USB OS02:11
HonestAbemy headphone jack is closer to my speakers than my speaker jack02:11
devnull_let me think about it02:11
HonestAbeand i have been just manually adjusting it with the dial, but now that it's been brought up....02:11
devnull_so you want the master to go up when the headphone slider goes up ?02:12
HonestAbeother way around02:12
ItsTheSourceactually the other way around. The volume slider affects the master.02:12
devnull_how about you just keep headphones at MAX level and then you can just adjust the master through gnome or your software ?02:13
thalibthats the problem i dont know how to do it02:13
ItsTheSourcemaster has no effect on headphone volume02:13
mad-lulz-yodevnull_, no one who has any decent pair of cans would do that02:13
thalibhow do i select it to become the boot device02:13
ItsTheSourcethere's mut or max02:13
ItsTheSource*mute02:13
dfcnvtI just plugged in my speaker to my computer... it doesn't make a sound. How do I restart my audio interface?02:14

alephantHi all02:15
alephantHow do I tell whether package foo has been compiled with support for bar?02:15
alephant(e.g. whether "pppd" has PAM support)02:15
ItsTheSourceIf you compiled it there might be a configure.log02:16
thalibhello02:16
devnull_does debs contain that meta information?02:16
devnull_do02:17
devnull_ItsTheSource, so you are saying you would like ... when headphones are plugged in the volume control adjusted the headphones not the master ?02:17
devnull_instead of adjusting pcm or master ... you want the headphone level adjusted02:18
ItsTheSourceSince master doesn't affect my headphone volume then that would work.02:18
ItsTheSourceYes.02:18
thalibhow do i make my usb stick the booting device02:19
devnull_thalib, idk .. go into your bios and find how to change the boot order .. or press F9 or F10 for a boot menu02:19
DaemonicApathyEither adjust the primary boot device in your BIOS, or select it manually when turning on the computer.02:19
devnull_we don't know what bios you have02:20
thalibhow do i go into the bios02:20
ItsTheSourceF2, F12, DEL...press all of them at once02:20
devnull_escape even02:21
Zarcowilol02:21
thalibthats when the computer starts right02:21
devnull_ItsTheSource, i wonder if there is a pulse config for it ... because that is detectable i believe wether headphones are plugged in02:22
ItsTheSourceWell I have Headphones in my audio output devices. If I select it and adjust the volume...nada...02:22
devnull_dfcnvt, pulseaudio -k02:23
devnull_you can try pulseaudio volume control02:23
devnull_pavucontrol02:24
dfcnvtnothing worked02:24
dfcnvtLet me do the power cycle on my computer.02:24
devnull_dfcnvt, i wouldn't02:24
dfcnvt..02:24
devnull_there are numerous reasons for audio not working02:24
machicolawhat are some tasks people do with startup scripts? or shell scripts02:25
kaushalHi02:25
devnull_drivers ... mixer levels ... etc02:25
ItsTheSource...incorrect device selected...02:25
dfcnvtI've used up on smplayer often but I don't remember messing around with speaker's interface.02:25

mad-lulz-yomachicola, things youd like to setup and run...02:25
dcplayaCan someone recommend a good VNC server for 12.10 that will start on boot?02:26
devnull_dcplaya, vino-server comes with unity i believe02:26
mad-lulz-yomachicola, servers, make wifi connections02:26
devnull_but i don't think it starts till you have logged in ?02:26
HonestAbewhew, solved my audio prob, it was xfce related (of course). It was using hdmi as my default audio02:26
devnull_that will happen02:27
dcplayaIm running a headless. I usually login via SSH but sometimes I need a GUI02:27
ItsTheSourceno you don't :D02:27
HonestAbe^02:27
devnull_im not sure but vino-server may be user specific ?02:27
dr_willisdcplaya:  you can just ssh in and start vncserver by hand. works well for me02:27
ztguHi, I am having problems with ctrl + alt + f7 from console mode. I get a black screen and can't do anything02:27
ztguCan anyone help?02:27
dr_willisyou dont want to use vino on a headless server02:27
devnull_ztgu  fresh install ?02:27
ztguWhat is happening in this process?02:28
devnull_dr_willis, good point02:28
dfcnvtztgu: /etc/init.d/gdm restart02:28
dfcnvtbut unsure if there is gdm in it02:28
machicolaahh, wifi, definitely... thanks mad-lulz-yo02:28
dcplayadr_willis: I used to do that but I just found a 700GB VNCserver log file so I am apprently doing it incorrectly02:28
devnull_12.10 would be lightdm02:28
mad-lulz-yostgu, #killall Xorg02:28
mad-lulz-yostgu, #startx02:28
jschallwhy do the nvidia drivers make the splash screen go completely fugly?02:28
ztgudevnull_: fresh install won't work02:28
devnull_dcplaya, can you kill logging ?02:28
ActionParsnipztgu: killall -u $USER     will do it02:28
devnull_ztgu .... what did it just stop working .. did you just install ??02:28
dr_willisdcplaya:  edit the vncserver script to remove logs. or set a no logging option perhaps02:29
devnull_jschall, what splash screen ?02:29
HonestAbedcplaya sorry to be an idiot, but have you tried trimming down logs?02:29
ActionParsnipztgu: what video chip do you use?02:29
jschalldevnull_: the ubuntu splash screen02:29
HonestAbeerp, dr_willis is vastly quicker02:29
devnull_jschall, you talking about the screen while it is booting ?02:29
jschalldevnull_: yes02:29
devnull_jschall, probably a framebuffer problem ... might need to add an option to your kernel boot .. might not be finding the video mode correctly02:30
devnull_my guess02:30
jschalldevnull_: it switched to a text-based splash and a bunch of crap gets printed over the top of it in a very broken manner02:30
ztgudfcnvt:  etc/init.d/gdm restart, what does it do?02:30
dr_willisnvidia and flgrx drivers have issues with plymouth ;)02:30
=== vnbang_ is now known as vnbang2003
ztguActionParsnip: I have amd, what does killall -u $USER do?02:30
haylois some version of live build being maintained for ubuntu ?02:30
dr_willisi tend to just disable plymouth02:30
devnull_yea i used to have similar issue with fglrx drivers ... but seems to be fixed these days for me02:30
dfcnvtztgu: It will restart the x server. (Where you tried to get in CTRL+F7)02:31
ActionParsnipztgu: kills all the processes belonging to your user02:31
aartistHi, What is the one thing, that I can do, if my mouse is stuck?02:32
devnull_jschall, luckily you don't really have to worry about it .. it just wont look pretty02:32
ztguActionParsnip: yeah, I know, but why?02:32
jschallwhy can't ubuntu get a damn splash screen right after 10 years?02:32
devnull_jschall, they do have it right02:32
ActionParsnipztgu: then why ask what it does, when you know?02:32
devnull_does the LiveCD / USB boot correctly with the splash ?02:32
ItsTheSourceOH what a tease...http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=90030502:32
jschallclearly not.02:32
ActionParsnipztgu: it will allow you to log in and hopefully give a GUI.02:32
devnull_jschall, are you new to this ?02:33
dr_willisi belive the nvidia/fglr x stuff with plymouth has  laege  threads on the forums02:33
jschallnot remotely02:33
PreflexHi, I'm trying to convert a series of .png files to video.   Any suggestions on a good way to do this?02:33
devnull_then you should know better02:33
dr_willisPreflex:  ffmpeg/mencoder02:33
jschallanyway, yes, nvidia's problem, but yes, ubuntu's problem too.02:33
=== vnbang2003 is now known as vnbang
devnull_jschall, does the install boot correctly with the splash ??02:33
jschallyou mean the livecd?02:34
devnull_i guess if you have an older version of ubuntu02:34
* dr_willis dosent worry about a 10 sec boot animation when he had 10+days of uptime02:34
devnull_but yes02:34
jschallyes, it works with nouveau or nv or whatever02:34
ztguActionParsnip:  The thing is that I can get a GUI working with startx, ( i am using KDE) But the ctrl + alt + del process freezes my system.02:34
devnull_jschall, then it is your problem not ubuntus problem02:34
devnull_ztgu, don't do that02:34
devnull_jschall, but to fix it .. lets move forward02:35
ztgudevnull_: do what? startx or ctrl - alt + f7 ??02:35
devnull_find out what drivers and settings the LiveCD is using for video and try to mimick that setup02:35
devnull_ztgu ... do not ctrl+alt+delete02:35
PreflexI've tried mencoder, but it doesn't seem to be working right.  I only get two or three frames and then it goes nuts.   http://pastebin.com/aW715Yjh02:36
jschallanyway, i'd like it fixed for everyone. i'd like to understand how to work around nvidia's crap and implement it.02:36
devnull_jschall, i have had issues in the past where the video is flawless from the livecd but after install i had to fix it02:36
devnull_jschall, nvidia's crap is better than ATI's crap02:36
devnull_it is probably a setting of yours02:36
Preflex#ffmpeg wouldn't help me, because ubuntu's version of ffmpeg is a "fake fork"02:36
dr_willisits not going to be a trivial fix with nvidia/plymouth.02:36
devnull_check to see what mode is set in the kernel boot02:36
WXZxrandr prints out a list of your root windows, right?02:36
ztgudevnull_: why?02:37
dr_willisfake fork = spork02:37
ztguActionParsnip: Do you know of an alternative to suspend or if I can make my suspend resume with startx command instead ?02:38
dr_willisffmpeg in ubuntu is the ffmpeg fork known as avconv i think. check ffmpeg --help02:38
smogfork shaped like a spoon, with the teeth closer together = spork02:38
aartistHi, I need urgent help. On ubuntu my cursor doesn't move.  Does your cursor moves?02:39
jschalldevnull_: a setting of "mine" implies i changed a setting. it may indeed be a setting on my computer.  i have googled about it, it says to run hwinfo --framebuffer and pick a resolution, but none of the resolutions are the native resolution of my (system76) laptop, which seems pretty dumb.02:39
dr_willisaartist:  yes. moves fine here02:39
bsmith093you know how some really advanced bulk renamers can add the parent folder(s) to the name of a file? well i need to remove that part organized like this stuff/blah/status/blah - authorname - filename.txt the only matching parts will be the "blah", and it is garanteed to be a part of the filename02:39
devnull_jschall, it might be a different setting02:39
jschalldevnull_: and the nouveau drivers clearly display the splash at native resolution02:40
devnull_gotcha02:40
devnull_and your using nouveau drivers ?02:40
jschalldevnull_: no, i'm using the native drivers02:40
aartistdr_willis: ok.. so it's not internet problem. what I can do to solve it?02:40
devnull_oh02:40
jschalldevnull_: nouveau is what's used on the livecd, right?02:41
dr_willisaartist:  no idea. you havent given us any details. unplug/replug the mouse and se if it works02:41
devnull_not sure ... that is the open source drivers ... so i don't know what you mean by native02:41
jschalldevnull_: oh, i don't mean native, i mean proprietary02:41
devnull_gotcha02:41
devnull_not sure about the nvidia drivers ... do you feel like you have to have the proprietary drivers ?02:42
ItsTheSourcebsmith093, you could probably use rename and pwd to rename your files02:42
aartistdr_willis: I am on laptop... with intel machine and installed ubuntu via wubi. and works good everyday. I can reboot and it may work fine.. but I like to make it working without rebooting.02:42
devnull_ItsTheSource, my search is running a little dry for your headphone issue .. maybe jack is needed02:42
bsmith093ItsTheSource: its not the pwd but 2 levels up from there02:42
jschalldevnull_: yes, i do things that require the proprietary drivers.02:42
HonestAbeaartist: from personal experience, can i reccomend that you reinstall?02:42
devnull_jschall, 12.10 right ?02:42
aartistdr_willis: I can click the way it is.  But  the cursor doesn't move with mousepad.02:43
xenomeis there an easy one liner to completely remove ubuntu-desktop?02:43
HonestAbenot necessarily to fix whatever problem, but wubi installs are problematic to say the least02:43
devnull_jschall, btw does the splash screen load up correctly at all .. even for a second ?02:43
jschallno02:43
devnull_xenome yes02:43
dr_willisaartist:   see if it works ffom s live cd as a test02:43
jschalldevnull_: it does not02:43
devnull_okay02:43
xenomedevnull: how would you do it?02:43
aartistdr_willis: thanks.., I don't have LiveCD.02:43
devnull_xenome did you do a google search yet ?02:44
dr_willisaartist:  time to get one. they are handy.02:44
devnull_jschall, let me check on that02:44
HonestAbeaartist, have you got a thumb drive?02:44
dr_willisaartist:  or make a live usb02:44
xenomeyes, but it seems like an apt-get remove ubuntu-desktop just removes the meta package, not really any other packages02:44
xenomei could remove gnome-*02:44
ItsTheSourceI think bash will allow you to match the longest string from the beginning to the last match of a character. I'm trying to remember the syntax...maybe PWD=$(pwd) ${PWD##/}...bah i know that's wrong..02:44
xenomebut it seems like there is a cleaner method02:44
dr_willisxenome:  thats how meta packages work. yes02:44
aartistdr_willis: no.02:44
devnull_xenome why are you doing this in the first place ???02:44
aartistdr_willis: I was looking for some keyboard command tweaks.. that will get this going.02:45
xenomecan I not just look at what the metapacke installs, and reverse that?02:45
ItsTheSourcedevnull_, thanks for looking. I'm not coming up with much either...02:45
devnull_jschall, they just made some adjustments to the nvidia-graphics-drivers package that might be a known issue02:45
xenomedevnull, because I want to get to a stripped down X running only openbox from init script02:45
xenometrying to do it as clean as possible02:45
devnull_xenome ... so install openbox02:45
dr_willisxenome:  not really its a failing of how metapackages work. they just dpend on other things02:45
jschalldevnull_: nvidia did or canonical did or what?02:46
dr_willismakes  ti easy to install stuff.. but not easier to remove02:46
devnull_jschall, checking ... it is because it thinks there is no framebuffer to use02:46
devnull_jschall, ill see if i can find an update or fix02:46
ItsTheSourcebsmith093, ${string%substring}: deletes shortest match of substring from back of string...02:46
devnull_xenome you can have multiple window managers ... you can pick what you want to get into on login02:46
somsipxenome: I tried that once. I ended up reinstalling from the minimal image to get a clean setup02:47
devnull_jschall, on shutdown do you see the splashscreen ?02:47
jschalldevnull_: not sure yet. i doubt it. i can find out now?02:48
jschalldevnull_: i'll just do that.02:48
devnull_i dont want to make you reboot02:48
Solace_could anyone tell me why I can't execute eclipse?:( private message for details02:48
xenomesomsip: that's probably a good idea02:48
devnull_Solace_, just ask your question in here with some a lil detail02:49
somsipxenome: I found I couldn't get things as clean as I wanted without trawling for dead config files. Easier to min install and 'apt-get install {WM of choice}'02:49
=== dankest is now known as dankest|away
devnull_xenome don't remove any other packages .. just install openbox ... logout .. you should be able to pick your session at the login screen02:49
devnull_jschall, that was dang fast02:50
tocoheadquestion, want to install ubuntu 12.04 and have a 64 bit but it recomends 32bit, why and which is best?02:50
xenomedevnull: I'm looking for no window manager, I don't want a prompt, I'm setting up a pretty simple device02:50
Solace_downloaded eclipse Juno with wget http://www.ocdsoft.com/files/debian/eclipse-cpp.tar.gz && tar -xvf eclipse-cpp.tar.gz && mv eclipse-cpp /usr/local/eclipse-cpp && ln -s /usr/local/eclipse-cpp/eclipse eclipse && rm eclipse-cpp.tar.gz02:50
somsiptocohead: almost certainly 64 bit02:50
jschalldevnull_: it does not work on shutdown02:50
devnull_xenome, openbox is a window manager02:50
ActionParsniptocohead: depends on the cpu you are installing on, how much ram you have and the use of the OS02:50
xenomei'm sure, gdm02:50
Solace_but when I use the command eclipse or cd the directory and ./eclipse, cannot execute binary02:50
devnull_jschall, thank you for the information ... fast reboot btw02:50
xenomeerr i'm sorry, gdm02:50
xenomedisplay manger02:50
HonestAbeActionParsnip, I love your name02:51
dr_willisgdm can autologin02:51
ActionParsnipHonestAbe: its an old harry hill joke02:51
ItsTheSourceSolace_, you may need to run that with xvpf for your tar arguments02:51
jschalldevnull_: yep, it's a fresh install on a system76 gazelle professional - no ssd though, could be faster :)02:51
xenomeyeah but I don't need all that stuff running, I've got a limited embedded device02:51
devnull_gazelle ... nice02:51
somsipxenome: you want simple - slim may be worth considering as login manager02:51
dr_willisstart x from rc.local then02:51
devnull_xenome ... what stuff ??????02:51

devnull_jschall, https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers/+bug/1063969            looks promising02:53
ubottuUbuntu bug 1063969 in nvidia-graphics-drivers (Ubuntu) "NVIDIA does not work with framebuffer drivers" [Wishlist,Triaged]02:53
devnull_but you can enable it in a config file and 2 commands ... but your kernel will throw warnings at you02:54
jschalldevnull_: right, so it is entirely nvidia's fault02:54
devnull_jschall, looks that way ... but if you want the framebuffer support you can have it ... but it will throw a warning in the log02:55
ItsTheSourceah...no, wget http://www.ocdsoft.com/files/debian/eclipse-cpp.tar.gz && tar -xvpf eclipse-cpp.tar.gz && mv eclipse-cpp /usr/local/eclipse-cpp && ln -s /usr/local/eclipse-cpp/eclipse eclipse && rm eclipse-cpp.tar.gz02:55
jschalldevnull_: i wonder why.02:55
devnull_something like the nvidia drivers dont support framebuffer so if you enable it is a unsupported feature ?02:56
jschalldevnull_: also, for some reason hwinfo --framebuffer reports that i don't have any framebuffers at my native resolution02:56
devnull_correct02:56
devnull_you have none at the moment because they are disabled02:56
tocohead4xAND 9650, memory 7913 MB, ATI Radeon HD 3200. general use02:56
jschalldevnull_: god i hate nvidia so much.02:56
devnull_still better than ATI ... a boot screen is a minor issue ... Nvidia just increased their graphics peformance on linux by 40% i wouldn't complain to to much :)02:57
jschalldevnull_: how much worse is ATI?02:57
spyzerhey everyone, does the open source radeon driver supports open gl ES acceleration?02:57
tocoheadwas confused as they have 32bit (recomended) next to the download02:57
devnull_getting better ... but bad driver support02:57
jschalldevnull_: i guess with valve pressuring them they might work a bit harder on the linux drivers.02:58
devnull_tocohead, because 32 bit will run on all 32b and 64b processors ... but 64bit will only work on ... 64bit02:58
Solace_ahhh, so just change -xvf to -xpvf :) thank you very much02:58
devnull_jschall, they did .. they just increased performance .. like just recently ..i thin it is on valve for linux's site02:58
tocoheadok thank 64bit it will be02:58
devnull_framebuffer is a minor issue compared to 3d rendering02:59
dr_willistocohead:  idiot proofing for people that have no clue what 32/64bit mean02:59
ItsTheSource...maintains permissions. If that doesn't work then just run # chmod +x /usr/local/eclipse-cpp/eclipse02:59
devnull_dr_willis, i was going to say the same thing ... in a slightly different way ;)02:59
ItsTheSourceidiot proofing?!? impossible!03:00
devnull_jschall, but you can enable it if you want ... people are saying they aren't running into stability issues by having it enabled03:00
tocoheadthanks for all your help, using Linix Mint and thinking Ubuntu will be better03:00
dr_willisdevnull_:  im sick of  bending over backwards to idipt proof stuff. then getting  asked to do backflips also.  ;)03:00
jschalldevnull_: anyway, it just bugs me because its embarrassing for ubuntu, embarrassing for nvidia (but less so), and embarrassing for me when my $1400 computer looks "broken" with the OS it was purportedly designed for.03:00
devnull_haha03:00
spyzeranybody please03:00
devnull_i hear ya ... i am a programmer and web developer ... goes with the job03:01
dr_willistocohead:  i dont see much point in using mint really.03:01
HonestAbejschall what kind of computer?03:01
jschalldevnull_: anyway, i'm trying ubuntu again after switching to kde for a very long time. my next issue is why can't i drag windows smoothly?03:01
jschallHonestAbe: system7603:01
devnull_jschall, comment #7 in the link will fix it .... you should be fine ... nvidia probably changed something in how their software works and they probably don't need it for other os drivers03:01
ActionParsniptocohead: 64bit is my recommendation03:01
HonestAbejschall nifty!03:02
dr_willisspyzer:  state the issue to che chennel03:02
ActionParsniptocohead: remember the target audience of ubuntu. If you have a 64bit OS you can run both 32bit and 32bit03:02
tocoheadI liked the look and windows design. but having problems with it03:02
ActionParsniptocohead: so it covers the users who are unsure of their CPU, or computers in general03:02
devnull_jschall,   that is another issue03:02
jschalldevnull_: known?03:03
devnull_jschall, and btw .. if i didn't have to i wouldn't buy an ATI card .. but my laptop is an APU03:03
tocoheadmakes since ActionParsnip03:03
devnull_jschall, like ... a setting somewhere ... might be a composite issue03:03
devnull_kde on 12.10 ?03:03
jschalldevnull_: kde on 12.04. i just got around to grabbing 12.1003:03
devnull_maybe you need sync to vblank on03:03
spyzerdr_willis: i am trying to look for tizen sdk development. The emulator needs open gl ES accelration. My laptop has ati radeon hd 4500 . So I wished to know whether the radeon driver supports that?03:04
devnull_not sure .... i haven't had that issue in like 2-3 years since the drivers got better for ATI03:04
jschalldevnull_: they aren't tearing, they're just jerky03:04
devnull_okay03:04
dr_willisspyzer:   no idea.. thats why i said ask the channel. not me. ;)03:04
devnull_do you have a CPU monitor ?03:04
spyzeranybody :)03:04
Muphridhai03:05
devnull_spyzer, something that opengl3 offers ?03:05
devnull_jschall, i was going to say drag a window around and see how high your cpu spikes03:05
jschalldevnull_: no spikes.03:05
devnull_okay03:05
jschalldevnull_: all 8 lines stay below 50% :)03:06
devnull_hehe ... dang you03:06
jschalldevnull_: just grabbed compizconfig03:06
devnull_yea .. check in the compiz settings manager03:06
jschalldevnull_: i really wish ubuntu had built on/polished kde instead of gnome03:07
devnull_i guess you could grab kubuntu ?03:07
jschalldevnull_: because this is a serious pain compared to how well kde works, but kde also has rough edges (search, for example)03:07
rushboyhello can anyone please tell me where can i see the git folder ?03:07
rushboyubuntu 11.1003:08

ultraparadigm!Help!  ?Where did my Desktop Cube go?03:08
ubottuultraparadigm: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)03:08
jschalldevnull_: it does, kwin has its own compositing03:08
devnull_jschall, so maybe it is a compiz issue then03:08

spyzersometimes i keep on getting system problem detected with evolution-calender-factory, is that a known bug?03:10
devnull_how do you get the bot to describe a package?03:10
spyzerIf yes, is there some short fix for that03:10
ultraparadigmThanks!03:10
devnull_hmm ... let me check that package .. might not be the correct one03:10
ultraparadigmDevnull, that the second important thing I found missing in 12.10 that was in 12.0403:10
spyzeralso when I try to generate the error report , in the apport-gtk it just shows me a loading icon when I click on details03:11
somsipdevnull_: use !info {packagename}03:11
spyzeris there any way for me to get the details03:11
devnull_thanks03:11
spyzerso i can atleast do some hotfix if possible03:11
ultraparadigmThe first most important thing was the linux-headers.  My video drivers FUBARed my PC upon compile untill i figured that out.03:11
devnull_!info compiz-plugins-extra03:11
ubottucompiz-plugins-extra (source: compiz): transitional dummy package.. In component universe, is extra. Version 1:0.9.8.6-0ubuntu1 (quantal), package size 3 kB, installed size 73 kB03:11
spyzeranyone please03:11
spyzerEven my crash reporter dies03:12
devnull_ultraparadigm, yea i thought i was given a disabled compiz manager .. but you just need to install the extra plugins and it will be just like before03:12
devnull_ultraparadigm, yea .... just grab the headers always .. its always a safe bet03:13

devnull_jschall, the lagginess ?03:17
jschalldevnull_: but it wasn't a delay, it was just laggy03:17
devnull_okay ... the recommendation when something like that happens is to try and restart unity03:17
devnull_unity --replace should do the trick03:17
devnull_rushboy, hmmm ... not sure where it puts git ... maybe in /var somewhere .. or /usr/lib/03:18

bazhangiFlip, the ##networking was to datruth03:24
rushboysomsip: yes maybe i am looking for the .git folder of the cloned repo03:24
somsiprushboy: git clone {repo}; cd {repo}; mkdir newdir; git add newdir; git commit -m 'Message'; git push; But you should fnid a nice tutorial really03:24

iFlipbazhang either one... I read people loading Debian, but if anyone had tried Ubuntu I would be open to success story03:24
ultraparadigmYes, that worked like a charm03:25
jschalldevnull_: i guarantee you the mouse is fine. fine in kde, fine while not moving windows, fine now that the window thing seems to have resolved itself.03:25
jschalldevnull_: rebooting, i want to see what removing plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text does03:25

HonestAbehave you tried it out?03:26
ultraparadigmI had to return my old ATI HD video card because it turns out it doesn't work in 12.10 and I tried it in 12.04 and it works but not the opengl.  :-(    It was already using legacy drivers when i bought it bran new.  So I got a NVidia GTX and I am happy now.03:26

gnuskoolthx03:26
devnull_ultraparadigm, what card doesn't work in 12.10 ?03:29
jschalldevnull_: well, i got it to just display all the text properly, and that is definitely preferable to the brokenness that was going on by default03:29
devnull_jschall, i bet03:29
devnull_as long as that issue with the windows is resolved atm you should be okay03:30

devnull_well having composite on the desktop makes gaming a little harder ... i think i need to launch a second X server with no composite to get some more performance03:37
devnull_and i already enabled opengl3 by using the 3.7.1 kernel03:37
devnull_but i am not using the proprietary drivers03:38
jschalldevnull_: well, i'm going to go try kde distros.03:43
jschalldevnull_: i lasted almost three hours this time! a record.03:43
devnull_hehe ... it took me a lil to get used to unity and i have been using gnome for to many years03:44
devnull_you can install a kde desktop if you would like03:44
jschalldevnull_: no, i'd prefer not having all of the out-of-place junk from the gnome installation03:45
devnull_jschall, ah ... you mean like primarily using qt software instead of the gtk software that ubuntu uses03:49
jschalldevnull_: right. having both just gets you a huge number of redundant applications03:49
HonestAbejschall try the xfce side of the force03:49

hexstatik_ActionParsnip: ok ill try and see there is a way to disable in bios, but i think i would  already have that05:52

somsipTigerx1078: well, your options are wide open really. 32 bit with PAE kernel or 64 bit is probably a better recommendation. If it's not production you dont really need LTS of 12.04, but it might be more stable. And either server install, then put a GUI on top, or a lightweight desktop such as lubuntu or xubuntu. No firm answer really06:40

NuSueyah, is there a way how to fix the hall32.dll (or is it hall.dll) windows boot .. without using the windows installation CD? (i'm asking because it would fu.k up my GRUB)08:18
somsipsam__: I've never heard of this before, but: http://fai-project.org/08:18
mladouxNuSuey, it might be easier to use the windows installation cd to fix it, then use the ubuntu install cd to repair grub afterwards.08:20
trijntjesam__: you could take a look at ubuntu-defaults-builder, which allows you to create a custom iso image08:20
trijntjeHowever, due to a bug this will not work for Quantal 64 bit08:20
NuSueymladoux: yeah. but last time, when It threw my GRUB into trash, I had quite some problems to put the grub back in :p08:21
Ben64NuSuey: you could back up grub and put it back :D08:22
mladouxNuSuey: do you have /boot on it's own partition?08:22
mladouxbecause if you do, a real easy way to fix it is to run the ubuntu livecd, then mount your boot partition to /boot on the live cd, then run grub-install or grub-setup with /dev/sda ( no number, replace sda with your configuration ) as the target08:23
mladouxcan't remember if it's grub-setup or grub-install08:24
mladouxI had to do it a couple days ago.08:24
Ben64back up is easier08:24

dr_willisthe windows hd?10:45

dr_willisyou should still be able to use  access the windows fileststems from the installed system or a live usb10:46
graydragonand well the windows partishion is in a hybernated state10:46
bekksThen you cannot mount it.10:47
graydragonim using a live usb atm10:47
graydragoncorrect10:47
dr_willisi think you can force it to mount10:47
dr_willisid check the ntfs-3g docs . im not sure of the option10:47
graydragonok so is there a way to well repair it i have no idea how from what ive read id have to do some thing with mbr10:48
UbuntuWarriorhello10:48
bekksgraydragon: Boot Windows, and shut it down instead of hiberbating.10:49
graydragonid love to10:49
* dr_willis waits for more details...10:49
graydragonand greetings warrior10:49
graydragonok ill try to give as mutch detail as i can10:50
graydragonfirst off its a netbook10:50
bekksgraydragon: Or ensure that Windows will never ever boot from that disk, and just enforce mounting it using ntfs-3g. Not doing so may result in data loss, since the hibernated data may contain pending MFT data which were not written to the physical MFT yet. And changing data on the disk and resuming from hibernation after, may result in corrupting the filesystem.10:50
bekksI've summed it up... :P10:50
graydragonwell i am so new to ubuntu that i hae to say im lost10:52
dr_willisboot system, shutdown not hibernate.. would be the   'best' fix10:52

bazhanggraydragon, there's no fix without an upgrade11:28
Ubuntu-erikasokay11:28
Ubuntu-erikasi have an problem,when i start ubuntu 12.04 it says "Ubuntu has an internal error registred"11:29
Beifongdoes gnome-diskmount keep settings someplace?11:29
MonkeyDustgraydragon  10.10 cannot be fixed, upgrade first11:29
MonkeyDust!find diskmount11:30
ubottuPackage/file diskmount does not exist in quantal11:30
graydragonim using a live usb cant upgrade till i have access to my othe os11:30
Beifongdiskmount-applet keep a reference to nautilus. I'm using precise.11:30
bazhanggraydragon, then grab the latest iso and "burn" it to usb11:30
graydragonon a netbook11:30
bazhangnetbooks support booting by usb no problem graydragon11:31
Beifonggraydragon, grab the liveCD and use gnome-startupdisk-maker11:31
bentinatamaybe this is not #ubuntu channel11:32
Beifonggraydragon, but be careful with that it's dangerous.11:32
bazhangyou can simply cat the iso to the usb stick11:32
bentinatathis is #ubuntu-help channel11:32
thealmand@llutz I haven't bought the domain yet. not sure what a nameserver is. Perhaps you could reffer me to a good resource as I need to grow my understanding... My usual google searches are poisoned by people trying to sell me the service11:32
bazhangbentinata, whats the issue. please state it11:32
bentinatabazhang, how to PM?11:33
bazhangbentinata, /msg nickname message; good idea to ask first11:33
llutzthealmand: if you "buy" (register) an domain, the registrar will give you a webfronted to edit the nameserver-entries/to add subdomains etc.pp. those dns settings you have to adjust to your needs.11:33
llutzthealmand: since those webfrontends differ a lot from registrar to registrar, there is no general way to tell you. you could use the time to read about dns, records etc.pp11:34

graydragonthis mesage was from my winxp hd11:35
bazhanggraydragon, you need to follow the eol upgrades link11:35
JohnnieWhat does Ubuntu use clients.l.google.com for?11:35

barnexMorning guys. I'm using ubuntu 12.10 with ecryptfs encrypted home directory. And it somehow got mounted as a read-only filesystem.11:36
graydragonwitch i cant seem to install anything to11:37
barnexCan I just remount ecrypftfs as write'able like it's a normal filesystem?11:37
barnexand why did it mounted itself read-only?11:37
EaglemanMy postfix will only deliver mail to local domains, not to external domains, i am looking for the option to allow sending mail to external domains, any idea how i do this?11:37
barnexEagleman: what do you get in log when you try to send to an external domain?11:38
Eaglemanrelay acces denied11:38
thealmand@llutz so you could say no one ever "owns" a domain. It's closer to renting...(going out on a limb) an organization that has a big enough foot print on the web to forward a .com to an IP???11:39
llutzthealmand: basically, yes11:39
thealmandrenting *from11:39
barnexEagleman: have you tried googling it?11:39
Eaglemanbarnex it only allows mail to people in mydestination =11:39
graydragoneug sarry bazhang thought you were asking how there11:41
barnexbbl - reboot to test if my ecryptfs system will mount properly11:41
thealmandwow mind blown.... sounds like net neutrality as I thought it was never existed... and they still want to restrict it...11:42
thealmand@llutz if you wouldn't mind indulging me.... if instead of typing in a domain people pointed their browsers at my static ip I wouldn't need a domain or DNS?11:45
llutzthealmand: no11:45
guang_I rm /etc/apache2,then i reinstall the apache2.But now,after i run "/etc/init.d/apache2 restart",the terminal shows ".: 45: Can't open /etc/apache2/envvars"11:45
jribguang_: because apache2 is not the package that provides those files.  Use « dpkg -S /path/to/file » to figure out the correct package11:46
thealmand@llutz ip and port lol?11:46
llutzthealmand: remembering IPs is just not as handy as having domain-names/dns, but it works (dns just translates names into IPs)11:46
dibblegoif I need to upgrade 10.10 to 12.04, do I need to first upgrade to 11.04?11:46
jribdibblego: yes11:46

ubottudibblego: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade11:46
graydragonwas using live usb to install ubuntu to an external hd it askd to be restarted i restarted and can not get windows xp sp3 to work i get a mesage...((error: no such device:ze738bad-4312-4b9b-a177-1c57b9f6171  Grub rescue>_)) windows is hybernated11:46
dr_willisgraydragon:  you could reinstall and be sure to put grub on the MBR of the external USB hd. and then be sure the system is booting that HD.11:47
llutzthealmand: if your publix-IP doesn't change, its no problem to tell your friends" hey connect my webserver on "3.2.1.199:88888"11:47
graydragonso cant mount would love a step by step11:47
dr_willisif you were to mount the windoiws partion. what would you do with it?11:48
llutzwell, remove 1 811:48
dr_willisHuh? 1 8 ?11:48
dr_willisoh ;) miss read.. lol.11:48
llutzdr_willis: one of those 8s11:49
* dr_willis squints11:49
graydragonatemp to save the critical info then preform surgery on it to remove grub11:49
jribthealmand: also, at that point, you could just get a sub-domain from some place likely for free11:49
graydragonand get windows working agion11:50
e9t_JOINS11:50
dr_willisntfs-3g has a remove hyberfile option that would let you mount the  windows drive.11:50
graydragonand atemp to do an external usb hd agion11:50
graydragonok11:50
graydragoni havent had any luck with that11:50
dr_williswhat have you done exactly with it?11:51
JohnnieI have a question. Could enybody answer me? I use WireShark and see on them that my computer use client.l.google.com. I try to use Domain Blocker and block it, but It does not work.  Do somebody know why it so and what for this domain ( client.l.google.com) is used? Maybe it is because of Firefox browser?11:51
graydragonbasicly any comands to at least do a read only11:51
bazhangJohnnie, how does this relate to ubuntu11:51
dr_willisgraydragon:  what commands exactly?11:52
bazhang!info wireshark11:52
ubottuwireshark (source: wireshark): network traffic analyzer - GTK+ version. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.8.2-2 (quantal), package size 889 kB, installed size 2374 kB11:52
SnowmanX11How can I cut the end of the files (e.g 5 characters) with Gnome Commender - Advance Rename Tool?11:52
thealmandya jrib I did that through no-ip. My sucesses with that have inspired my to go farther as the free services apeared to me to have alot of entanglements. I was going to buy a domain from them but didn't like the terms of use. looked around and didn't like what I saw and I came here......11:52
graydragoni have forgoten so far was one to mount hd as read only using that 3g11:52
thealmand@llutz you say friends because there is no way I could withstand the pressure of having my ip address public11:53
graydragoni could jest be entering it rong11:53
graydragonbasicly i want to back up some of the data b4 i proced11:53
BluesKajHiyas all11:53
EaglemanMy postfix is ignoring all changes i do i main.cf, for example: mynetworks_style = host   but when i do  postconf -nf | grep mynetworks_style   mynetworks_style = subnet11:54
dr_willissudo ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /media/MAKEADIRETORYFIRST -o remove_hiberfile           (i think)11:54
graydragonyea i dont wana do that till i back up first11:54
dr_willisof course there might be some data loss. its hard to tell with hiberfiles.11:55
dr_willisSo... Now you want to get the windows system bootable first? or what exactly?11:55
graydragonyes thats the last step11:55
dr_williserr... that would be the first step unless you want to remove the hiberfile..11:55
dr_willisand mount the windows drive.11:56
graydragonmount drive as read only then x11:56
thealmandI know domain and dns makes things easy. But I remeber a time (in the states anyway) before cell phones when you could dial complicated numbers to get a deal on long distance phone calls. 10-10-321 just a dial a minute...11:56
dr_willisNo idea if you can with a Hiberfile on the windows drive..11:56
dr_willisNot sure what removeing the hiberfile would endanger either.,. Unless you had an app OPEN that had data in it you just HAD to have...11:57
graydragonok....so how to mount first as read only?11:57
dr_willisNo idea if you can mount it read onlyt with a Hiberfile on the windows drive..11:57
bekksgraydragon: You have to mount with removing the hibefile. Like being told several times.11:57
thealmandOr how about letter association with numbers dialed on a phone. **call 1-800-shopnow**11:58
graydragonok dr willis and bekks can you please pm your step by step methods to me plz11:59
graydragonfor doing the task11:59
graydragoni would be vary happy if ya did12:00

nibblerEagleman, http://nopaste.info/20d0d831cd.html stuff like this might help, but this requires dovecot (or cyrus or similar) as a backend, which needs to be configured to correspond correctly with postfix... email is no trivial topic.....13:21

Eaglemannibbler:  http://pastebin.com/gkuqjX8e13:25
cfhowlettmagik_: this is the xchat app?  consider dropping that in favor of the xchat plugin to firefox13:25

dfgmmethanks gusy13:26
magik_cfhowlett, yeah I'm using the xchat app.13:26
dmibut gparted seems to allow me to use the full disk13:26

BluesKajwill what upgrade ? , dmi ?13:27
Ben64i've never had an issue with xchat, having it as a plugin seems strange13:27
dmiBluesKaj: will gparted automatically upgrade the disk's MBR to GPT13:27
cfhowlettBen64: ymmv ...13:28
magik_cfhowlett,  I don't wanna use a plugin but thanks for the info13:28
dmiso basically, the partition setup at the moment is one 2TiB partition with an MBR (msdos) partition table13:28
dmiif I ask gparted to resize the partition to fill the 3TiB disk, will it also move the partition and change the partition table to GPT format?13:28
dmiI can't seem to find any information about this one way or the other13:28
nibblerEagleman, you are lucky, and everything is fine. just use submission port (587), this is where you already have authentication allowed, and its easier for your users to use, because less blocky ;)13:28
dmiit doesn't say it will do this when I queue up the operation (without applying it)13:29
dmiand I don't really want to destroy nearly 2TiB of data :-)13:29

dmiBluesKaj: but it doesn't support UEFI boot... which isn't a problem, as this 3TiB RAID is just pure data storage, not used for booting13:31
dmiBluesKaj: but I think I've got the answer I need from cfhowlett, thanks13:32
Eaglemannibbler:  25 is for MTA-to-MTA mail exchange. 587 is for user-to-MSA mail submission.   right?13:32

EaglemanCan i prevent mail submission on port 25 and still accept mail exchange on port 25 in postfix?  Same for port 587 but then otherwise > 25 is for MTA-to-MTA mail exchange. 587 is for user-to-MSA mail submission.13:46

Mandalordsenorbusybox: you may want to try reinstall grub213:49
nibblerraven, Eagleman: you can give reptyr a try, but thats a dirty hack13:49
nibblerEagleman, when i grew up, it was port 25 only.... but i guess today you are right13:50
Eaglemannibbler there are no official ways?13:50
Mandalordsenorbusybox: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=170542313:50
nibblerEagleman, to not open port25? well - iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 25 -j DROP, but thats a hack. i'm sure there is also a nice way13:51

senorbusyboxMandalord: starting a live-cd now via usb13:52
senorbusyboxthanks13:52
Eaglemanschnuffle nothing, but i am trying to setup a secure box. and if i am right port 25 is only used for mail exchanged. on my machine i am able to also use port 25 for submission13:52
senorbusyboxBen64: apparently nothing, I think my harddisck is just broken13:52
nibblerEagleman, you are fine as long as you don't open-relay, so dont worry13:53
schnuffleEagleman: That can be changed i the postfix/exim/sendmail config, you would disbale realy on port 25 and only allow it on 58713:53
Eaglemannibbler why is my isp blocking port 25 then? for mail submission13:53
Eaglemandisbale realy ?13:54
nibblerEagleman, because he does not comply with net neutrality (and thinks you might spam if he does not watch you)13:54
schnuffleEagleman: That could be due to load considerations13:54
nibblerschnuffle, blocking 25 for load considerations, or do i get the context wrong here?13:55
schnufflenibbler: not blocking 25 but blocking smtp auth and relay on port 25, that's a difference and should be RFC compatible13:55
* nibbler just can't see any load considerations anywhere around13:56
Eaglemanshould be done in master.cf under smtp right?13:56
schnuffleEagleman: Depends on your setup, either main.cf or master.cf13:57
Eaglemani am a bit confused by my own setup..13:57
schnufflenibbler: Imagine a heavy loaded smtp server. And now you can offload all the auth/relay checks and TLS load onto another server. Just a thought, I don't have any knowledge about the big providers13:58
Eaglemanschnuffle: smtpd_relay_restrictions and the one for auth is?13:58

pinkpelicanPici, would watch -n1 "kill -USR1 $pid" slow things down less than while true; if that is what's causing the slowdown or if there is a slowdown?15:27

pinkpelicanschnuffle, thanks for the help.15:27
Picipinkpelican: no, that would do the same thing.   Maybe change the refresh time for watch to more than just one second, or do the same via the while true command15:28
schnuffleEagleman: as ikonia told you you can do basic checks with a telnet session15:28

pinkpelicanPici, thank you again.15:28
EaglemanNothing now, i guess15:28
Eaglemanthere will always be a new issue15:29
pinkpelicanIf I installed pv, would pv cause the same type of slowdown?15:29
ikoniaEagleman: then you ask about the new issue when it comes up15:29

naftilos76Hi everyone, i made a fresh install of 12.04 on a desktop with an Intel GPU 82Q963/Q965 and the log-in screen is a mess. It goes like a turtle. Very slow so that even when i type my pass i manage to write 5-6 digits and then i can see the text box starting to show the asteriscs! Can anybody help?15:35

hilohello, I have a question that isn't exactly about Ubuntu, but I was hoping someone here might be able to point me in the direction of an application that can help me (which I would run on my Ubuntu system). I recently changed the password to my router, and I fat fingered something. I can't log in and I really do not want to hard reset and have to reconfigure (my setup is non-standard). I know what I meant to type, and have tried many combinations manually. I am15:36
hiloat the point where I am wondering if there is a tool which I can give the password I meant to type, and then it can hammer based on slight permutations of that.15:36

Rootbrian_Ethan_: backup the /home/ folder to a usb or second hard drive (not partition as second hard drive), then go about the usual reinstallation, then use the live CD to restore the /home/ folder.16:32
vitalyignome2 or kde does not have that problem16:32

MrPopinjayHey16:42
SlartZenMasta: I don't think you can actually pause the program doing the printing but you can use more, less or most to buffer the output so you can browse around in it at your leisure16:42
SlartZenMasta: ls | more   will give you a kind of text editor view of the output where you can scroll up and down, search and so on16:42
SlartZenMasta: personally I prefer "most" but you'll have to install it first..   sudo apt-get install most16:43
jhutchins_wkZenMasta: You can pipe the output to more or to less.16:43
jhutchins_wkZenMasta: It's possible to pause some output with the pause or scroll lock keys, but that's a little harder at the speeds we get today.16:43
ZenMastaI was hoping to pause this for example dpkg --get-selections16:44
jhutchins_wkZenMasta: It's possible to scroll back with shift-page up, but the buffer is limited.16:44
jhutchins_wkzen dpkg --get-selections16:44

ClientAliveHi, I'm trying to do something real quick. I'm trying to remember how to use wildcards to make numbered directories (multiple directories in one comand). I tried "mkdir Assignment[1-9]" and "mkdir Assignment*[1-9]" but in both cases it just made a single diretory with exactly that as it's name? Anyone can tell me the command for this?17:47
* dniMretsaM loves him some Emacs, nearst17:48
jribClientAlive: echo {1..9}17:48
Geetjrib, dnimretsam which one would work better? i mean stable and fast etc17:48

zakkotroni have installed glib atk latest version in /opt directory so how to configure gtk to these new libraries before installing it17:49

Geetjrib: how about peppermint?17:49
ClientAlivekriskropd: I didn't put quotes in the command I only put them here to set of the [code] ... [/code]17:49
jribGeet: well with 12.04 you'll have support for 5 years.  So if you want to stick something on there and not worry about upgrading for a few years, go with 12.04.  12.10 has support for only 18 months, but it is more recent17:49
jribGeet: I don't know what peppermint is17:50
savidWhy do I now get "Directory not empty", when I type "rm -rf somedir/", and then running the *exact* command a second time works?17:50

ejvnot sure that changes how i feel... heh17:52
Geetjrib: i don't think that system will work for more than a year :D so i will opt for 12.10 then..17:52
TheBronxHi all17:52
Geetdoes it have a software center like ubuntu?17:52
auronandaceGeet: peppermint isn't supported here17:52
savidOh...  wait, the directory is not gone17:52
savidso, rm -rf didn't remove the whole dir17:53
jribGeet: yep, it's the same distribution.  It just has a different set of default applications17:53
atlefGeet, that is what is great about most distro's, they run live from dvd/usb/cd, so you can try before you install17:53
jribsavid: to explain what happened we need more information; that's why I asked17:53
TheBronxI have ubuntu server 10 and I would like to know what does this message means: "r8169: eth0: link up"17:54

Getterac7nep1x: 32-bit will work fine, but you're limited to 4GB of RAM or so.18:00

savidjrib, dunno. but killing the process allows me to remove it. strange.18:01
ejvyou can use a 32bit kernel with PAE to address memory outside the ~4GB range18:01

m60Anyone know if there Firefox 17 ESR will be added to Ubuntu repositories?18:52
MonkeyDustm60  the current  version is 1818:53
m60Firefox ESR: "Extended Support Release", MonkeyDust , it's the equivalent of LTS.18:53
MisterLmaybe you guys can help out since i cant find a working solution via google. my floppy drive isnt recognized in 12.04, adding the device in /etc/modules makes the fdd appear in lsmod, but marked red (no idea if that matters). /dev/fd0 doesnt exist anyway18:56
m60Firefox 17 is the most recent ESR and is planned to be updated through Firefox 25 (w/ 24 being the next ESR): http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/faq/18:56
MisterLany ideas on that legacy hardware? :)18:57
hangdeadmante: I fixed it thanks18:57
Third3yeMisterL: I could be wrong, but I think you'll have to compile a new version of the kernel and include floppy disk support18:57

ActionParsnipReaga1: they will when the mouse is in the OS. There are shortcuts to release it19:21
disharmonicfor virtualbox just make sure you have your kernel headers installed. For some reason it doesnt have that as a dependency19:21

disharmonicanyone know where to get the steam auth key for the repo.?19:30
Third3yedisharmonic: steam repo? You mean Steam by Valve?19:30
disharmonicThird3ye, yeah. a steam repo appeared on my 12.10 install. But it's lacking a GPG key and apt is complaining19:31
goddardhow can i use the groove shark application integration with ubuntu?19:32
carey_how do i create a share19:32
IdleOne!gpgerr | disharmonic19:32
ubottudisharmonic: Getting GPG errors after adding custom repositories? Find the GPG keyword for the repository (it's 437D05B5 for the standard ones) and run « sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com <key> »19:32
goddardit says i have to log out and log in19:33
goddardcant i just restart unity?19:33
goddardi dont want to close and reopen all my applications19:33
Third3yedisharmonic: I'd say it's kind of uncessary... just download the .deb from the official web-site19:33
Third3yeunnecesary19:33
IdleOnegoddard: you can try19:33
disharmonicThird3ye, i didn't add it. It must get added by an update on 12.10. But last i heard Valve wants to move steam updates to apt for ubuntu19:34
disharmonicIdleOne, thanks. I'll give that a shot19:35
UlyssesGaGood hello.  I have an interesting issue - can I bounce it off of you fellas?19:35
MonkeyDustUlyssesGa  let's hear it19:36
jribdisharmonic: well what is the repository? Seems strange it would be added automatically19:36
zyadhi19:36
disharmonicjrib it's possible that installing steam adds it19:37
jribdisharmonic: yes, is that what happened?19:37
Third3yedisharmonic: I don't think they've published it yet19:37
jrib!ask | UlyssesGa19:38
ubottuUlyssesGa: Please 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 !patience19:38
Third3yedisharmonic: but just in case they have, mind messaging me the repo url? :P19:38
disharmonicjrib, dunno. I only noticed it cause apt was complaining when i tried to update today.19:38
IdleOnejrib: it is repo.steampowered.something, it should get the GPG key on its own but sometimes things happen.19:38
