kostkonpopsch, both of the commands are 100% safe00:00
popschkostkon, yep, autoclean cleaned up a lot00:00
GetCodeMonkeyI swear if I hit the power ball jackpot I will pay someone to fix this for me lol00:01
popschmy congratulations to the whole ubuntu community. I know how hard it is to ensure that dist-upgrades are working. all the services seem to run flawlessly. thanks00:01
ubuntu-testerWhy kernel headers are installed by default? why non-tech user would need them?00:02
kostkonpopsch, happy to hear that. i have had a similar experienced. many dist-upgrades, all successful.00:02
thedark12I always have the weirdest problems00:03
thedark12I have been using ubu tu for 5 years and I can never get a problem solved in chat00:03
kostkonubuntu-tester, i think the kernel headers are needed for dkms, or whatever is called. it rebuilds certain modules after every kernel update00:03
kostkonubuntu-tester, like for example, non-free drivers.00:04
GetCodeMonkeyI feel the same way thedark1200:04
GetCodeMonkeyI will say at least people respond here00:04
GetCodeMonkeyin the Mint Linux chat when I was asking I got silence00:04
thedark12I get silence00:05
[_-S1L3NC3-_]You Do00:05
thedark12That is why I guess my problems are weird00:05
thedark12The whhile reason I am using 10.4 is because I cant get later versions to work with tv out00:06
bubba99blkadder  r u still here00:06
thedark12Nobody could help with that00:06
thedark12Now I need to manually upgrade qt to use some software00:06
thedark12Because I cant use the repo stuck with the old version00:07
ubuntu-testerkostkon: any other examples? if i don't use non-free drivers, would i need headers?00:07
thedark12Googled and manually did make install but the software doesnt recognize that I have upgraded00:08
GetCodeMonkeyI am guessing you got silence because unless you have someone write a new driver for it your sol00:08
ikoniaubuntu-tester: if you don't need them remove them00:08
thedark12I guess00:08
ikoniaubuntu-tester: if you're not sure, leave them, they will cause no harm and take up a very small ammount of disk space00:08
=== Danausplexippus is now known as Idsi
ubuntu-testerikonia: i will, but want to be sure00:09
ikoniaubuntu-tester: sure about what ?00:09
kostkonubuntu-tester, jsut keep them, to be on the safe side00:10
ubuntu-testerikonia: sure nothing in the system would need them00:10
ikoniaubuntu-tester: why do you want to remove them ? what problem are they causing you ?00:10
ikoniathey take up about 2k of disk space, and if you are in any doubt....which it sounds like you are, why remove them00:10

CT1Hi all.  I seem to have grub/windows loader on the wrong hdd.  I need my  1TB (media disk) connected to boot.  Yet Win7 and Ubuntu are both on another partitioned disk.  How can I fix this? any how-to on the web would be much appreciated.00:11
ubuntu-testerikonia: well in the 1st place i learn the system. the minor reason is to save traffic updating them with the kernel00:11
ikoniaubuntu-tester: the package is about 2k - it's not really a saving00:12
ikoniaand what are you learning about the system by removing them......nothing00:12
thedark12So how about qt? There is no way to uograde it without upgraing from 10.04?00:13
ikoniathedark12: not from the ubuntu repos, is there a reason you need an upgrade ?00:13
ubuntu-testerikonia: funny, i misread it as 2M00:14

kunjiGetCodeMonkey: 12.04 is LTS, you're looking to run 3  monitors, umm, how easy or difficult that is depends on just what your setup is.  I've had hell trying to get 2 graphics cards to output at once (one nvidia and one ATI card), but for instance, my current setup uses an A10 APU and 3 monitors was as simple as just connecting them and using the proprietary ATI driver.00:16
ubuntu-testerikonia: i have it installed in quantal. no non-free drivers, no dkms00:16
Eaglemanikonia, its not possible to add " virtual permissions"  to a mounted folder?00:17

kunjiNote_: It's certainly possible, you mean via sudo right?  You just need to add them to the sudoers file.  A quick google for "add user to sudoers file" should turn up exactly how you do it.00:19
bubba99hi kunji  yes still here. i didnt want to do anymore till i discussed this. when i type a command in now it just gives me another line with the > on it00:19

bubba99kunji in other words the leading comment on each line (initramfs) has now disappeared.00:19
Eaglemanikonia, i want some of my local folders mounted in my www directory ( owncloud ) , what would be a good way to secure those things, so when my owncloud setup is hacked,  the files are still safe00:20

kunjibubba99: hmm, what does it show you if you use "ls -la"  ?00:20

bubba99kunji i am just preparing the livecd again on usb. this time i am doing it in IE instead of chrome and i also realixed that i was putting the ubuntu download file on the usb with the unetbootin transfer as well. so i put that in a different location on hdd this time and took it from there00:21
GetCodeMonkeykunji problem is I have two monitors00:21
GetCodeMonkeyI am sorry two video cards00:21
GetCodeMonkeyIf I had one video card that supported 3 monitors it would be so easy00:22
ubuntu-testerikonia: linux-headers-generic is a meta-package linux-headers-<version> are a real headers and thay are 12M compressed00:22
kunjiGetCodeMonkey: Yeah, 2 tends to be difficult, I've never gotten it working, but I always figured it would be easier if the ones I was trying to use were the same make, or used the same driver.00:23
bubba99kunji   that command just gives a > again00:23
ikoniaubuntu-tester: so ?00:23
kunjibubba99: No output?  Hmm, how about pressing ctrl+C does that give you back the other prompt?00:23
GetCodeMonkeyKunki that may be why it worked for me before I had the same video cards before one died and I replaced it with a cheap one00:23
GetCodeMonkeyI quit gaming so I figrued it would not matter00:23
ubuntu-testerikonia: just the answer to your "the package is about 2k - it's not really a saving"00:24
bubba99kunji  ok my usb is ready again now00:24
bubba99ctrl c  = no change   >00:24
kunjibubba99: I suppose try the usb again, I think I'm out of ideas T.T00:24
bubba99kunji  should i just try normal boot first?00:25
ubuntu-testerikonia: still interested in the reason they are installed00:25
ikoniaubuntu-tester: sure sure, but I suspect you'd be unwise to remove them as libc-dev and the headers are not installed by default (I'm sure someone running a clean install can verify)00:25
bubba99kunji  in recovery mode ?00:25
kunjibubba99: It can't hurt, but we didn't really change anything.00:25
CT1dr_willis_:  I must press F12 at boot to select my disk that I have all my media on (video/mp3/text) as the boot disk for grub to work properly.  I want to have it boot from the disk my operating systems are installed on instead (as I remove the "media" disk frequently)00:25

kunjibubba99: So is this still the GRUB shell you're in, or the proper Ubuntu recovery one?00:34
ubuntu-testerikonia: have traced deps with aptitude: linux-libc-dev -> libc6-dev -> gcc -> ubuntu-desktop. description for the latter: "This package depends on all of the packages in the Ubuntu desktop system. It is also used to help ensure proper upgrades, so it is recommended that it not be removed." so it's a Canonical's desision to include gcc and krenel headers in desktop system by default. even if no dkms is installed (my example). i want to know the reason for 00:35

smwjrib: I always used the alternative cd... but apparently that is no longer supported...00:47

lubuntu13On a Macbook 2,1 with Ubuntu 12.10 I am having problems with the wireless connection whereas with Lubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) it worked just about fine. Now pinging the router doesn't even always work, and forget pinging google.com, I might get a 700ms response and then 7 Destination Host Unreachable and then 400ms... By the way I have a Win7 right beside, with consistent ~50ms pings to01:02
lubuntu13google.com with no dropped packets. Any help immensely appreciated.01:02
kunjibubba99: Ubuntu uses the linux kernel.  It is possible to run it in a virtual environment that might have a different host OS, for instance in VMWare.  Or are you asking about the Wubi installer?  I'm not exactly sure how the Wubi installer works.01:02
lubuntu13BTW my wireless card is atheros ar541801:03
bubba99kunji  its only what i have been reading. the online shop were i got the notebook laptop from told me the OS system is ubunto 12.04LTS . the live cd we are creating from unetbootin says it is windows based. when i ran the middle option which is linux based it did not load the same on the usb? I wonder if i should try this option again????01:05
histobubba99: which vender didyou buy the laptop from?01:05
histobubba99: I would contact them as there should be support01:05
kunjibubba99: Oh, that, they're just referring to whether you're creating the livecd on windows or on linux.  You're making it on a windows machine right?  So they are referring to it as a "windows based" install.01:06

smwjrib: 12.0401:11
bubba99kunji  i did try the linux option but it seemed to load differently. thinking about it though, it may have been because i copied over the top of the existing windows copy on the usb. i think i will scrub the usb and start fresh with the linux option01:11

DavisPondI did the F9 thing while booting up. Now the computer will  only come up in Ubuntu. If the windows option is picked it kicks over to Ubuntu.01:21
smwDavisPond: you had windows 7, you installed ubuntu, then ubuntu did not show up in the boot menu?01:21
kunjibubba99: Sorry, I mean, is this what was not working before01:21
smwDavisPond: ok01:21
DavisPondNo Ubuntu was successfully installed.01:21
smwDavisPond: can you pastebin the output of sudo update-grub2 ?01:22
bubba99kunji  no thats how i always done it . but originally i was saving the .iso ubunto version file to the usb stick too and i thought that was affecting the data read when i put it in the notebook01:22
DavisPondNo I'm not that good.01:22
smwDavisPond: open a terminal, type sudo update-grub2[enter] and then copy and paste the output to fpaste.org01:23
bubba99kunji  and when i tried the unetbootin (for linux) version i copied it over the top of the windows version !!! i didnt think to delete the original first. so maybe that could have affected it01:23
smwDavisPond: then give me a link to the paste01:23
bubba99kunji  so to open the usb on this laptop which file do i need to open on the usb folder?01:24
kunjibubba99: Hmm, ah, I see what you mean.  Actually having that there probably didn't make any difference, I tend to use a usb as both livecd and for moving files around.01:24
smwDavisPond: also, pastebin the output of sudo fdisk -l01:24
kunjibubba99: ?huh, what do you mean, to boot from the usb?01:25
xxxHow can I stop apache2 and cups from starting on boot?01:26
bubba99kunji  you said i should try the livecd on this laptop to see if it is loaded correctly. would i just select autorun on the usb stick folder?01:26
ubuntu-testerxxx with chkconfig for ex.01:27
kunjibubba99: Oh, no, you would try booting this laptop from the usb and see if you can get to a livecd environment01:28
smwDavisPond: still here?01:29
xxxubuntu-tester, I tried to use the option --set apache2 off - but it did not work..01:29
bubba99kunji  is that a bad idea??01:29
kunjibubba99: Nope, not a bad idea at all.  The worst that can happen is that it doesn't boot from the usb, in which case it will just boot your Windows normally.  Otherwise it will load a menu, choose the livecd option instead of the install one.  It will boot Ubuntu and then you just shut it down and take out the drive.  No harm done.01:31
BotanicI am trying to add a ppa to my system however I am getting an error http://codepad.org/Cbf35Np601:31
Botanicsystem is new install of ubuntu 12.0401:32
kunjibubba99: Double check that the bios give the usb boot priority over the HD boot of course, otherwise you'll just keep ending up with Windows booting.01:32
SaidKLEDoes ubuntu 64 bit 12.10 have memory allocation bugs in the g++ compiler? I can't get valid c++ code to work on my machine.01:33
ubuntu-testerxxx: try update-rc.d01:33
bubba99kunji  just worries me that this is my work laptop. i dont own it. and i dont have admin rights. not sure if it will let me in the bios?01:33
kunjiSaidKLE: I doubt it, pastebin your code and I'll take a quick look, those kinds of errors are usually the coders, as in, like 99.99% of the time.01:34
quimonizbubba99 bios is separate form operating system, it starts before any kind of operating system, just try?01:34
kunjibubba99: If the BIOS is password protected, then you won't be able to change it to boot from usb first, but it's easy to check, you just try it and find out, no harm done if it doesn't work.01:35
histoSaidKLE: have you searched launchpad01:35
kunjibubba99: Bothering with password protecting the BIOS is pretty rare in my experience though.01:35

kunjicomps: Check out those links, and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 then let us know if you're still having trouble.  That documentation most likely has the answer unless you wrote over windows by accident, but that should be fine unless gparted complained about something.01:40

qualiayeah, it's these new ones that ship with the new win8 protection stuff01:43

comps_walk me thru? please01:43
kunjicomps_: That documentation does a really good job, I learned everything I know about GRUB2 from it and it alone, but I'll be happy to help if you have more particular questions.01:44

ubottuqualia: UEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware, it is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI01:46
comps_i have uefi..01:46

DavisPondTried reboot several times to no avail.01:50
kunjicomps_: You can get the uuid for a partition by running blkid /dev/sdax x being the partition number and a being the driver letter, as you see from sudo fdisk -l01:50

jjasonhello all, im trying to understand the difference between free software and open source..  im not sure what room would be appropriate so i figured id ask here04:28
ubuntu-testerSara: gparted has warned you about consequences of this action but not denied it. it has queued move operation (see at the bottom)04:28
Sarai applied it04:29
ubuntu-testerSara: show screenshot after that (press Alt+Prtsc instead of Prtsc)04:29

Saraubuntu has interesting way of doing all these things04:31
Sara4.99 of 90 GB04:31
xbskidjjason: Also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_software#Naming04:32
usr13jjason: The two terms pretty much describe the same thing.  free software is software that you are free to do with as you wish, you have access to the code.  open source means the same thing, (the source code is available and open to the public for you to look at and edit if you so desire).04:32

usr13jjason: free software does not necessarily mean that it is free as in you do not pay $$ for it.  You may or may not pay $$ for it.04:35
jjasonor how people are able to sell open source applications without customers just downloading on their own and not paying04:35
jjasonusr13 : when i pay money for free software, what prevents me from selling it04:35
jjasonusr13: like..  just buying the software, then immediately undercutting the seller04:36
r0n1nSara: if your system failed after resizing, you can use your ubuntu live usb for repair work. there's an article on ubuntu wiki on how to do it04:36
ubuntu-testerSara: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair04:36
usr13jjason: We are encouraged to donate to the developers of our choosing.  If we like a particular package, it is a good thing to give the developers some $$.04:36

Enginhow can I disable this visual stuff06:38
Enginapparently not from system settings06:39
magn3tsEngin, do a server install + build-essentials. Vim to your heart's content. Or use XFCE or whatever DE you want that is lightweight enough for your needs.06:39
cfhowlett!nounity|Engin, assuming you mean unity ...06:39
ubottuEngin, assuming you mean unity ...: Ubuntu 11.10 and higher use GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic06:39

Belugaubuntuw1204: I first added it in the CUPS web admin interface, totally fine, except that the jobs completed without actually printing any real paper11:04
MonkeyDustcub  guess nobody browses the way you do11:04
Belugaubuntuw1204: then I found the amazing French tuto and replaced the ia32-libs with the 11.10 version, but still no luck. I'm currently not at my neighbor's, but trying to do research before I go back11:05

cubMonkeyDust, that's a ridiculous assertion. It's not just browsers, it can be multiple terminals, or anything else for that matter11:05

Belugaubuntu1204: thanks.. did you use alien to convert from rpm or did you use that .deb supplied by M. Gruz on launchpad?11:06
MonkeyDustcub  i guess not many people use multiple instances of the same program11:06
cubhisto, it's just laggy11:06
ubuntuw1204i used alien11:06
cubi never had this problem on XP or Ubuntu 10.0411:07
histocub: you could try a different desktop environment.  Unity may be a little bloated for your specs.11:07
cubso i'm almost thinking it's a hardware problem11:07
cubthat's what im thinking11:07
MonkeyDustcub  if that's the case, you should consider using a lighter DE11:08
ubuntuw1204Beluga: you have to select the drivers manually from the list of models and you have to select the correct model otherwise it will not work11:08
ubuntuw1204Beluga: did you install the deb using sudo dpkg11:08
Belugaubuntuw1204: as I can give calibrate command to the printer, doesn't that mean that the driver is correct?11:09
ubuntuw1204Beluga: and if it installed without error then i am sure that you can print..11:09
Belugaubuntuw1204: I had no errors.. Used "Add printer" in the CUPS interface and selected the correct model11:10
ubuntuw1204Beluga: just remove the printer and repeat the process as i have told you.. and it will be fine..11:10
Belugaubuntuw1204: I also did the procedure described in the French tutorial, which had  ccp://localhost:59787 as the location11:10
BelugaI mean the peripheral11:10
ubuntuw1204Beluga: no ... thats ok you will get the correct model i am talking of correct drivers..11:11
Belugaubuntuw1204: I used the correct ones from Canon's website11:11
cubyeah i was thinking that histo , i do have those kind of de's installed but was hoping to get this working11:11
cubi would probably need to upgrade my system :\11:12
ubuntuw1204Beluga: i know you have the right drivers..11:12

ActionParsnip! Bootoption | dion12:35
ubottudion: For a list and explanation on some of the boot options, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions See also !nomodeset.12:35
DionI can use Try Ubuntu from the CD if that counts.12:36
ActionParsnipTbg: I suggest you install the ardour stable version,  beta software is not for the lay user12:36
dpurgertActionParsnip, true -- but assuming the PC is trusted ... jsut set the keepalive for longer (e.g. 4 hours) ... it's still a bandaid to the "annoying" need to input the password12:36
TBGAnd double tabbing ar dose not suggest ardour12:36
ActionParsnipDion: add the boot option: nouveau.blacklist=1   and it should help12:37
dpurgertand it's not as bad as leaving it wide open...12:37
Sgt_ShultzDion, that should give you the option to install12:37
ActionParsnipDpurgert: if there is only one user then its not quite as bad but its still not great12:37

nep1xhi. When I do install some package on my system with apt-get, how can I know the files and directories where the files are installed?12:38
TBGHeck Ardour 3 will probably be out by then12:39
DionAlright, trying to access boot options.12:39
kostkonnep1x, you don't need to know. why are you asking12:39
dpurgertActionParsnip, definitely ... but still, assuming that keyring is "me" ... still feel better about it when it's not wide open ...12:39
nep1xjust for curiosity12:39
ActionParsnipDpurgert: user still has to log in, this helps12:40

ActionParsnipNep1x: they are all over, they don't just go to one folder12:40
khaoshi in my ubuntu 12.10 (asus laptop) i can change brightness with fn keys but I dont have notification for this change. Is there any way to fix that?12:41
dpurgertActionParsnip, fair enough12:41
nep1xbut that a mess!! I am just trying to understand how the software is install in this kind of system12:42
ActionParsnipNep1x: common libs are installed once and loaded once in RAM unlike Windows which wastes resources with duplicated files and stuff in RAM12:42
kostkonnep1x, you only need to care about your home folder12:42
DionActionParsnip- Do I add -- before the boot option as the guide linked claims?12:42
DionIf I'm reading correctly?12:42
kostkonnep1x, that's the beauty of it12:42
rekoili have a dm-crypt on a raid i've just finished growing12:43
rekoili now want to make the crypt use the new space12:43
ActionParsnipNep1x: how, lubs are put in the libs folder and binaries are in /usr/bin etc. If other apps need the same libs then they uee the ones already installed,  fewer and smaller updates and fewer resources used12:43
rekoilbut i'm scared i'm gonna ruin something12:43
rekoilanyone have any experience growing crypts?12:43
ActionParsnipNep1x: one folder for each app is a massive waste and very wasteful. How is a central store of oibs etc a mess?12:44
rekoilsince the raid was 6tb in size (now 8tb) it is using a gpt partition table12:44
rekoildo i just delete the partition, create a larger one and off i go?12:44
TBGI just had to put the whole location in /opt/Ardour-3.0beta5_13072/bin/ardour312:45
bekksrekoil: You dont need a GPT label for sizes like that.12:45
AmhnduHi all12:45
DionBy the way, is wi-fi strength dependent on the OS? I actually have two laptops- one Acer, one Mac. The Acer keeps disconnecting a lot on both Windows and Ubuntu but the Mac has a very stable connection.12:45
rekoilbekks: msdos labels dont support partition sizes larger than 2tb do they?12:45
DionSo I thought maybe it had something to do with the laptop itself, but while I was using Ubuntu on it, the wi-fi was unstable as well again.12:46
khaosActionParsnip, we have talked some days ago about no brightness in a laptop. I fixed the prob with acpi_osi=null. Now it works but there is no notification in Unity about chaning brightness. This is not a critical prob but is there any way to fix that? Unity OSI notifications?12:46
nep1xi guess that all libraries usually go to /usr/lib and bin to /usr/bin, and there is the first place where, by default, package manager looks when going to install something and need a library12:46
nep1xno no12:46
bekksrekoil: When going to have just one big filesystem on that drive, you dont need a partition table at all, technically :)12:47
nep1xi am not saying that...12:47
rekoilbekks: but i did, and i can't just remove it now can i?12:47
ActionParsnipNep1x: the package database tells the package installer what is installed,  if its already installed then its not downloaded12:47
ActionParsnipKhaos: what make and model system12:48
bekksrekoil: No, you cant.12:48
Sgt_ShultzI lobotomized a macbook pro recently, with live cd install, VLC rules over itunes ..... it should work perfectly, using xubuntu here on acer 5733z & HP Dv6 no issues even fingerprint scanner working on hp12:48
rekoilbekks: :( so, do you know what i am supposed to do?12:48
khaosActionParsnip, asus laptop with nVidia GEFORCE 610M 2GB + nvidia Hybrid (Running Bumblebee)12:48
rekoildo i delete the partition, create a larger one beginning in the same block and resize the crypt?12:49
dpurgertDion, not the OS so much as the quality of the hardware...12:49
ActionParsnipNep1x: its al about reducing effort,  data storage and RAM use. If Linux used the Windows model,  you'd have about 20 instances if python running12:49

Diondpurgert, thank you.12:51
ActionParsnipKhaos: bumblebee is far from perfect, I bet it is an issue for a long while12:51

rekoilas in dm-crypt12:52
nizori need to install vlc on my Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex....totally new beginner....pls12:52
rekoili want the crypt to use all 8tb12:52
nizorfine dpurgert12:52
bekksrekoil: there are no 6/8tb disks, you have a raid setup :)12:52
TBGI know why it does't show up in a locate search of a tab complete. the opt directory is not used anymore in Ubuntu so it is not in the system paths12:52
rekoilyes, but that is really irrelevant to the system :P12:52
khaosActionParsnip, yeah I know that. But is there a manual way to enable the notification from Unity Notifications or something that? I saw some forums posts that many ppl have this similar problem without having the bubmblebee driver :)12:52

kostkonnizor, i don't think you will ever manage to install the latest version of vlc on it. a much older version maybe12:54
TBGAnd yep as I suspected it is a Jack related issue12:54
DionAlright, booting...12:54
DionIs it permanent, or can I only do this using the disk and the boot option?12:55
TBGWill look at it more later, thank for the help all12:56
dpurgertDion -- you need to have changed the boot option on grub for the PC ... in theory that's what the guys had you do already, so it should be permanent...12:56
ActionParsnipDion: no, get updated and install the nvidia-current package,  you'll be ok thereafter12:56
DionI'll try if the connection finally stabilizes.12:57
quick-how can i remove the system proxy fot apt-get .I am using 12.04  LTS and i have removed it from the network connections and also from the /etc/apt/apt.conf but still it says connecting to proxy but i am not using the proxy now12:57
Sgt_ShultzDion,complete, update,  a reboot would answer that12:57
DionWill Update Manager help?12:57
DionDamnation, the wi-fi just won't connect! It was perfect while it was OSX, it should be hardware-based... Da fuck?12:58
DionPardon my language.12:58
dpurgertDion, no -- you have to get the nVidia binary (should show up as some option ... I forget which though (intel gfx that "just work(tm)" here)12:59
dpurgertDion -- check that the driver is installed/working, and that you've actually told the OS to connect to your wifi13:00
DionIt registers the network and all, I've entered the password, but it keeps struggling to connect and repeatedly asks to connect again.13:01
DionAt last! It connects! Stay connected...13:02
DionFound the driver options, installing newest NVIDIA drivers.13:02
ActionParsnipDion: the wifi is always hardware based, it needs a n antenna.  How do you get software based WiFi?13:03
DionThat's 173, right?13:03
Sgt_ShultzI dont wonder why anymore why when i walk past a macshop, why there 30 red shirts & a 100 idiots asking silly questions, UPDATE DRIVERS13:03
bekksDion: We dont know which version you are seeing there.13:03
DionVersion 173 is latest, correct? It's what it's offering.13:04
sogeking99Hey guys, I am having problems with screen tearing on Ubuntu 12.04. This is very noticeable on videos. I have tried VLC, Totem and gplayer. XBCM seems to not have the issue, but I would rather not have to use that player13:04
bekksDion: No, it isnt.13:04
rekoilbekks: so ignore the encrypted filesystem, how do i grow a partition without regard to filesystem at all on a gpt label?13:04
dpurgertSgt_Shultz, because the redshirts are "geniuses" or some such.  on the upside, we can all live with the hope that they'll be the first to go13:04
DionAnnnnnd it disconnected.13:04
rekoilbecause from what i'm reading the crypt will take care of itself13:04
ActionParsnipSgt_shultz: people don't mind paying that bit more to know what they have will work13:04
rekoili just need to enlarge the space available to the crypt13:05
bekksrekoil: It will not expand itself.13:05
DionWell, we're using a router.13:05
phoenixsamprasHalp!! what is something like photoshop??13:05
ActionParsnipDion: get fully updated, I recommend a wired connection13:05
rekoilthe crypt will once i've decrypted it and told it to resize, it will use the block devices total capacity13:05
kostkonphoenixsampras, gimp13:05

rekoili just need to expand that13:05
phoenixsamprasbut gimp sucks, must be something more pro?13:05
ActionParsnipDion: you still didn't answer about 'hardware wifi' being a thing13:05

NoteDoes anyone know where i can get this or what it does13:06
rekoilall i want to do is manipulate the partition map, change partition 1s mapping from 64mb-6000gb, to 64mb-8000gb13:06

ActionParsnipDion: a wired connection will help. Fully updating will help lots13:10
DionYou know what's ironic? I'm on the Acer right now, which is usually misbehaving with the wi-fi, but it's surprisingly stable right now. Of course, I probably jinxed it just now...13:10

Sgt_Shultzrun back to windows 8, colour boxes you can click on to get a your files, just like my Commodore64 geos system, very nostalgic13:28
ikonia3:25 < Comps_> grub killed my data, nothing ni did would make grub boot"windows 7"13:28
ipv6hermitikonia: I tried and rebooted, and it still doesn't work :(13:28
Comps_gpt boots are not repairable..13:28
ikoniaComps_: note the word "data"13:28
ikoniaSgt_Shultz: please, stop13:28
ikoniaComps_: I believe they are repairable13:28
bekksk-joseph: You may lose ALL data on your harddisk, depending on what you might do wrong. So create a backup before.13:28
ikoniaComps_: I've seen the guys in ##windows explain how to repair the efi boot process13:28
PatrickDickeyikonia, I'm guessing because that was the PID that it listed once. The one I'm looking at right now says CPU0 Pid: 30, comm: kswapd0 Tainted: G    W   3.7.2-2 (it's cut off at that point on my phone).13:28
Comps_then why bootrec shopw windows installs 0.13:28
bekksComps_: I know the ARE repairable.13:28
Guest55036Its a package via the ubuntu software centre13:29

rekoilfsck is done... that was damn quick13:32
Comps_my windows isnt mbr, its gpt, uefi board, grub turned it to mbr, made so windows repair wouldnt work i used boot-repair, restored, gpt mbr default. got repair to see it, bootrec would not fix it.):13:32
bekksk-joseph: When you are "not prepared to have a backup" you do not have ANY important data. So create abackup beforesomething might goes wrong.13:32
rekoili really really want to eliminate those 64mb prior to the start of the crypt13:32
Diondpurgert is that Broadcom STA?13:32

rekoili wonder if there might be a way to do that13:32
Comps_but bootrec would not see it13:32
DionComps_ do you even know what MBR stands for?13:33
Comps_google search said uefi to old br cant be fixed13:33

ogist_does ubuntu 12.10 not have the fire effect?13:34
Comps_the part i dont get is windows repair cant fix once grub touchd it:/13:34
ogist_i downloaded compiz-plugins-extra and the animations add-on is not showing up13:34
Diondpurgert It's the only wireless driver it's offering, so I think it's safe to say that's the one.13:34
Comps_i fixed many mbrs, just never since uefi eh..13:35
dpurgertDion, works for me :)13:35

ogist_i just wanted the burn effect :)13:38
DionI recall reading that it was strongly suggested to NOT use compiz on Ubuntu.13:38
PatrickDickeyI may get a different drive anyhow. It's an older drive (and only 320GB). So it's probably time to upgrade anyhow.13:38
wNzI think compiz is default on ubuntu13:38
ikoniaogist_: be aware a lot of the plugins won't work with unity running as it is a compiz plugin itself13:38
ogist_E: Unable to locate package compiz-fusion-plugins-main13:39
ogist_E: Unable to locate package compiz-fusion-plugins-extra13:39

nabblethi, when i do minimal install and choose no packages in the install process - will the intall have dhcpcd?13:39
ogist_i know13:39
ikoniahence the error "does not exist"13:39
ogist_ikonia: are you familiar with compiz?13:39
ikoniaogist_: why are you trying to install it if it doesn't exist then13:39
DionOh good, wireless driver installing rather quickly.13:39
ogist_ikonia: there are tons of websites telling me that it does exist13:39
ogist_where did it go13:40
ogist_i installed compiz-plugins-extra13:40
compdocnabblet, you mean ubuntu server?13:40
ogist_and there is no animations add-on13:40
ikoniaogist_: it doesn't exist in your ubuntu version, probably because it doesn't work with unity13:40
ogist_ah ok13:40
Comps_can i install ubuntu with out using grub?13:40
ogist_so ubuntu 12.10 sucks13:40
ikoniaComps_: no13:40

ikoniaogist_: don't use it then13:40
ogist_i should have installed 12.0413:40
ikoniaogist_: 12.04 still uses unity13:40

ogist_ikonia: what's your problem,?13:40
PatrickDickeyogist_ You can always install a different desktop that uses the animations.13:40
ikoniaogist_: I have no problem13:40
ogist_ikonia: you are acting like a little faggot13:41
PatrickDickeyComps_ why can't you dual-boot?13:41

Comps_grub wont boot windows on my board:/13:41
rekoilok, resize2fs didn't take too long either13:41
DionExcellent! The driver warning disappeared after I installed the wireless driver. Guess that means I got them. So the nvidia graphics and wireless is all I needed? Then the Update Manager updates and then reboot?13:41

PatrickDickeyIf I remember right (Comps_ and ikonia), uEFI will let you pick the operating system, and if you choose Windows, it will load the windows bootloader, if you choose Linux, it will go through Grub. I could be way off on that though.13:43

hylianikonia: i looked up the error code, and according to the libSDL group, it means sdl isn't installed. Since it is installed, I asumed it meant that I need the 32 bit version...14:07

DionSgt_shultz internet went down a bit so I missed the comment, saw you mention that, got concerned. Nevermind then.14:10
hylianikonia: according to apt/synaptic, the answer is yes.14:10
sawyer_where can i find explanations on removed packages? (why they were removed, when, etc.)14:10
ikoniahylian: that's not what I asked14:10
biopytePatrick, i wondered about one thing ... i cant even start locally the java console "file not found" ... so they have acces to my ubuntu box and delete files?14:10
ikoniahylian: I asked if the file it's complaining about is on your physical file system14:10
hylianikonia: i guess then I don't understand the question.14:10
hylianikonia: yes it is.14:10
somsipsawyer_: /var/log/apt/history.log14:11
biopytethat happened also recently with version 7 - 1014:11
biopytetoday again14:11
sawyer_somsip, i mean by Ubuntu itself14:11
PatrickDickeybiopyte no they can't delete files on your computer. All they can do is block it in their browser.14:11
ikoniahylian: where is it14:11
sawyer_i had a package that was removed, and it's no longer available in Ubuntu, i'm wondering what happened14:11
hylianikonia: it's in /home/denny/powder/14:11
ikoniahylian: then it's not installed by apt14:11
Sgt_ShultzDion, it all cool, 42 years in pc's tell me the numbers go up, i seen more ram than field of sheep, the hardware is cheaper, roll ubuntu 4 phones14:11
PatrickDickeywhich package sawyer_?14:11
sawyer_PatrickDickey, twinkle14:12
=== sysadmin is now known as Guest34352
ikoniahylian: and that's why your software is failing as it won't be looking in /home/denny/powerder for dynamic librarie14:12
somsipsawyer_: If you mean a GUI to view the log, I don't know14:12
biopytePatrick, but something happened to the files in the java folder ... usually you can start the java console locally ...14:12
sawyer_it used to be available, it no longer is, and i can't even compile it because of another package that was removed (libccrtp1)14:12
hylianikonia: no, apt/synaptic has no version of "the powder toy" available. but this software has always run before i switched to 64 bit ubuntu.14:12
sawyer_somsip, i mean an application that Ubuntu removed from their repositories14:12
ikoniahylian: what you've just said makes no sense14:12
biopytePatrick, to put it altogether , java is totally blocked , not only in firefox ....14:13
ikoniahylian: you said apt/synaptic said the library was installed, I asked you where and you said it's in place that apt-get would not install it to,14:13
somsipsawyer_: packages.ubuntu.org and links from there?14:13
PatrickDickeybiopyte that's odd. what happens when you run java -version in a terminal?14:13
hylianikonia: i used to run 32 bit ubuntu until about a month aqo, powder toy ran. Then i switched to 64 bit because I intend on installing more than 3.2 gb of ram, and now powder oy does not run,.14:13
PatrickDickeyhylian did you install ia32libs?14:14
hylianikonia: i thought you meant "the powder toy."14:14
ikoniahylian: what is the name of the file it's complaining about14:14
sawyer_somsip, you must mean packages.ubuntu.com, .org leads to something else altogether14:14
biopytePatrick, java version "1.7.0_11"     ... as normal14:14
ikoniahylian: no, that is not the name of the file14:14
ikoniahylian: give me the full name of the file14:14
hylianPatrickDickey: i don't know, i'll check it out14:14
PatrickDickeybiopyte then java is working. It wouldn't have given you that, if it wasn't.14:14
somsipsawyer_: ok14:14
hylianikonia: i don't know the name of the file.14:15
ikoniahylian: you do you gave it me earlier14:15
sawyer_somsip, so, as i was saying, this package was removed: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=twinkle&searchon=names&suite=quantal&section=all14:15
sawyer_it doesn't say *when* and especially **why** it was removed14:15
ikoniahylian: while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open14:15
biopytePatrick, ok, but when i try to start the console from the ubuntu console i get an error .... but, anyway thats not so important14:15
ikoniahylian: come on - please put some effort in / follow what you're saying, it's impossible to help you if you're not giving correct details14:16
hylianikonia: that's all it gives me, it never ends the error with the name of the file.14:16
sawyer_somsip, exists in Precise (http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=twinkle&searchon=names&suite=precise&section=all), removed in Quantal (http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=twinkle&searchon=names&suite=quantal&section=all)14:16
biopytePatrick, i mean the ubuntu menu in gnome classic14:16
DionHey guys, should I skip the software updates for now and restart for the driver updates, THEN do software updates? Is that safe to do? The cnnection is being horribly shaky and software update is failing a lot now.14:16
ikoniahylian: right, so I've asked you 3 times now "is that file on your system"14:16
bipulCan any one suggest me some good and working tcp server application. for ubuntu14:16

hylianikonia: how can I know if the file exists, if the error doesn't tell me what file it is or where it resides on the system?14:17
bipulikonia, i am trying to do network emulation. and i need tcp server application.14:17
ikoniahylian: the error tells you the exact file name14:17
ikoniabipul: network emmulation ?????14:17
ikoniabipul: I'm sorry, you are making no sense14:17
hylianikonia: no it does not. this is the error in it's entirety: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory14:17
PatrickDickeysawyer_ per http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=673900 They're retiring it upstream (in Debian), so that's why it's no longer offered.14:18
ubottuDebian bug 673900 in ftp.debian.org "RM: twinkle -- ROM; dead upstream, obsolete components (KDE3/ QT3/ libccrtp1)" [Normal,Open]14:18

RawProducewhen I try to create a mysql user with:   GRANT ALL ON foo.* TO bar@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'fizz';, I cannot login to the mysql console as that user -   changing localhost to the hostname resolves this14:18

bipulYes Network simulation-2 with network emulation.14:18
ikoniaerror while loading shared libraries: then it lists the library14:18
RawProducewhy is this happening?14:18
biopytePatrick, so tell the webupd8 buddy, that some work on the java installer is coming in again    ;-)14:18
sawyer_PatrickDickey, thank you!14:18
hylianikonia: ok, so then where does libSDL reside? I know it is installed via synaptic, because I looked for it in synaptic. but I have no idea where.14:19
RawProducereason I'm asking in #ubuntu is because I haven't seen this behaviour with any other distro14:19
ikoniaRawProduce: user@localhost = can only login from localhost14:19
DionAnyone? Should I go ahead and restart after driver updates and do the software update after instead?14:19
ikoniaRawProduce: because you've set th ehostname when you granted the permissions14:19

bipuloh ok i got it now.14:21
PatrickDickeyRawProduce in your mysql configuration file, is the hostname set to localhost or a hostname? If it's set to just a hostname, then it doesn't recognize "localhost".14:21

note_thank you15:14
denebeimany ideas dpurgert?15:14
MiningMarshdeadmund, well, data is copied in blocks. So a bs=1mb makes copies 1 mebabyte at a time. Basically, drives will be faster or slower depending on the blocksize, as they all have a different sized internal cache to hold the data. I find that 8mb is a good block size usually.15:14
alamihello how can i run aprogram in verbose mode15:14
MiningMarshdeadmund, and a higher blocksize is not always better.15:15
denebeimalami, it's usually either -v or -d15:15
WotWhereneed qt3 help using Gnome15:15
icerootalami: depending on the program, normally -v15:15
deadmundMiningMarsh: So it's still re-writing every bit on the drive but it's doing so in chunks.  What does this wipe program do?15:15
denebeimalami, but that's up to the program15:15
llutznote_: old but maybe this gives you an idea where to look at http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-822388.html15:15
MiningMarshdeadmund, no idea.15:16
denebeimalami, -h almost always works for getting help, you might also want to type 'man commandname'15:16
deadmundMiningMarsh: Alright, thanks for the help.  Hopefully dd is faster15:16
SpartanF31My computer is on lan with few other computer. There is a way for me to see in samba shares the lan available machines  and at the same time hide my one?15:17
MiningMarshdeadmund, if you want to find a good blocksize15:17
MiningMarshjust do somehting like time dd if=/dev/urandom of=/file/on/that/drive with different blocksizes. Find which is fastest.15:18
defer_I want to map < and > to one key how can i do it?15:18
deadmundMiningMarsh: why urandom and not random?15:18
bekksdeadmund: the blocksize should be the same size as the hdd cache size for optimized performance.15:18
WotWherewhere can i find libqt4-qt3support lib ?15:18
MiningMarshdeadmund, random has the possibility of running out, urandom lasts forever. Just a good diea to always use urandom.15:19
deadmundbekks: MiningMarsh how can I tell which is "faster" sudo dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/sdc1 bs=8192  gives no output until it's finished.15:19
bekksMiningMarsh: /dev/[u]random is pretty slow and normally slower than a harddisk. And writing into a file is not a good idea since you have a filesystem layer, which affects performance, too.15:19
mguydeadmund: you can send the dd pid a signal and it will repot15:19
note_llutz, hello, after reading that i realised the guide i followed (same guide the guy from that archive followed) and i didn't uncomment admin: cyrus15:19
note_after uncommented it allowed me to create it15:20
note_thank you15:20
bekksdeadmund: It will never finish until the target throws an EOF error.15:20
MiningMarshbekks, well, zero is fast but a little less secure. And thats the best way I know of to find a good blocksize.15:20
MiningMarshgparted uses the same.15:20
llutznote_: things start to work if you do it right :)15:20
bekksMiningMarsh: I just pointed out why thats a pretty useless way to find a valuable blocksize.15:20
alamiwhow can i fix that http://pastebin.com/yCqcUdnx15:20
FlowRiserHey guys, i have a notebook and i'm looking for a lightweight linux distro;  I narrowed it down to either Xubuntu or Lubuntu. So uhmm, Xubuntu vs Lubuntu ?15:21
deadmundmguy: thanks15:21
SpartanF31 hallo! My computer is on lan with few other computer. There is a way for me to see in samba shares the lan available machines  and at the same time hide my one?15:21
bekksdeadmund: Usable results can be produced with using a bs=16M (when having 16M cache on your hdd) and a count= value that exceeds the physical RAM to ensure you will be using the I/O cache instead your harddisk.15:21
OerHeksFlowRiser, Xubuntu needs 512 and Lubuntu can run on 256 mb systemmemory15:22
llutzdeadmund: if you want some status from dd, use"killall -USR1 dd" in a 2nd terminal, it will force dd to tell you something15:22
deadmundbekks: Thanks, how can i determine the cache on this hdd?15:22
FlowRiserOerHeks, how about their desktop environments ? I'm thinking of heavily customizing them ...15:23
bekksdeadmund: By looking up the model at the manufacturers site.15:23
NERO_Hey! I'm looking for help regarding the battery management in my lenovo G580 laptop.15:23
NERO_I've ubuntu 12.04 installed.15:23
daftykinsSpartanF31: why?15:23
deadmundbekks: ugh, thanks15:23
OerHeksFlowRiser, try them both and see what you like15:23
note_llutz, after doing all of this, is it even possible for me to add this email address to a mail app, like someone would with googlemail etc?15:24
FlowRiserNERO_, look in settings, you have power management15:24
dan1726thanks guys I found out what was wrong... remote access to mysql is block by default in iptables..15:24
alex_I finally was able to install ubuntu with Windows 8, but... I can not see grub or any bootloader, it always boot in Windows. Any suggestion?15:24
FlowRiserOerHeks, will do, thanks for the info15:24
deadmundllutz: that command does not give any output15:24
llutznote_: sure15:24
FlowRiseralex_, did you install windows before or after linux ?15:24
note_I can!?15:24
llutzdeadmund: it gives output in the terminal dd is running15:25
deadmundllutz: Oh!  I see it does on the dd terminal15:25
deadmundllutz: yeah, thanks.  sorry! :P15:25
SpartanF31daftykins: becouse i'm on a public network and that net isn't mine, so i want to avoid my notebook is visible in windows network places15:25
NERO_In brief: I've had this battery management software for windows that charges the battery for 60% and runs on AC power. However I'm unable to find a s/w in ubuntu.15:25
deadmundthis is still going to take a _long_ time15:25
daftykinsSpartanF31: so you've already got it installed and some shares configured, i assume?15:25
FlowRiserSpartanF31, Usually windows users don't know that they can see other pcs on lan =)15:25
daftykinsFlowRiser: of course they do, you open explorer and it shows them...15:26
SpartanF31daftykins: exactly.15:26
deadmundAs I said before, I don't need to re-write every bit.  I think the fastest way to do this would be to re-write every 10th bit or something.  This would still thoroughly scramble the data but theoretically would take 1/10th the time.  Is there any tool like this?15:26
note_llutz, where do i find out my incoming/outgoing mail server that I 'potentially' would have set up with postfix/cyrus15:27
NERO_Flowriser are u on?15:27
alamihow can i fix that http://pastebin.com/yCqcUdnx15:27
mguydeadmund: What are you trying to do? Secure erase a drive?15:27
daftykinsdeadmund: what's up? are you trying to zero fill a drive but it's too slow? are you writing with a blocksize of 2M when running dd? that speeds it up15:27
deadmundmguy: Yes, I'm going to sell it.  The data isn't really sensitive, just personal15:28
FlowRiserNERO_, you are vague about software charging your battery ...15:28
llutznote_: point your mailprogram to the hostname/ip of that server you just configured15:28
mguydeadmund: fill it with zeros it shoudl run at the top speed of your disk15:28
deadmunddaftykins: Yes, but I'm doing it over USB cause it's  laptop hdd and I have a desktop.  The blocksize on dd is not going to make this go fast enough for me.15:28
note_llutz, thank you15:28
deadmundmguy: Ok, I'll try that instead of random (/dev/null right?)15:28
daftykinsdeadmund: really? have you run it for 15 mins and seen how far it got using kill -USR1 PID ?15:28
vlacadeadmund: afaik, hard drives write in blocks of at least 512 bytes so writing a bit takes as much as 512 bytes15:28
note_hm, it says the password for my user is wrong, but i didn't create a password, what would it be?15:29
mguydeadmund: Or just drag a bunch of video/mp3 files to it and keep doing it till you fill the disk15:29
daftykinsdeadmund: yeah i was meaning use zeroes. dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=2M15:29
NERO_flowriser, I'm aware. Its the Lenovo battery management for windows. Now how do i stop the charge at 60% in ubuntu?15:29
llutznote_: i guess you have to configure a password15:29
mguyNERO_: Why would you want to do that15:29
deadmundMost recently: 1765 bytes (1.8 kB) copied, 350.191 s   The hdd has 320 billion bytes15:29
SpartanF31daftykins: i have a normal kubuntu installation, and sometime i need to access the nas over the office network where i work. But at home i want be not visible because if so the wifi owner as happened will shut down the AP.15:29
deadmunddaftykins: ok, i'll try that and see how fast it goes15:30
mguydeadmund: That's odd it should run at 25MB or so15:30
NERO_That will help my battery functioning for a long time.15:30
SpartanF31daftykins: so i need a way to not broadcast my computer name over windows  network.15:30
Pinkamena_DHello, can anyone tellme what package i cna use to disable the onboard wireless in favor of a USB one15:30

deadmund161480704 bytes (161 MB) copied, 2.98418 s15:31
bekksdeadmund: Why dont you use a reasonable bs= and count= parameter for finding the best performance?15:31
daftykinsdeadmund: :)15:31
SpartanF31mguy: u can use the terminal, and putting down the internal wifi.15:31
mguydeadmund: USB 3.0?15:31
bekksdeadmund: writing zeros is the same speed as writing random data. GENERATING zeros is much faster than random data.15:32
FlowRiserNERO_, oooh, you mean that ... hmm, let me see15:32
kmicuCrackling, clicking, popping sounds only when I have multimonitor setup (USB X-FI card) :/ Under xfce/gnome/unity the same, and with 12.04 and 12.1015:32
deadmundbekks: cool, thans15:32
deadmundmguy: usb215:32
Pinkamena_Dif you were referring to me, i have tried using the terminal to set wlan0 down with ifconfig, but iwconfig does not seem to have a simmilar feature?15:32
sevenforallHm, Ubuntu stops loading during the splash screen with all dots filled. Any ideas?15:32
deadmundbekks: please, I am.  of course doing that15:32
Pinkamena_Dor is one of the modes you can set it to "disabled"?15:32
daftykinsSpartanF31: just don't start samba when you're at home. simples.15:32
vlacabekks: yes, but is generating random data slower than the writing speed of the drive? :_15:32
bekksvlaca: In some cases, yes.15:33
mguydeadmund: something might be up - it's impossible for USB 2 to transer 160MB in 2.9 seconds.15:33
Toph2if you 0 fill your hdd, is it totally, safely erased?15:33
daftykinsSpartanF31: also stop stealing someones wireless network :P15:33
bekksdeadmund: Then whats the complete command you are using?15:33
mguyToph2: yes15:33
bekksToph2: Yes.15:33
Toph2ok,, thanks15:33
mguyvlaca: some random generation is SLOW15:33
vlacabekks: maybe /dev/random :)15:33
NERO_The more times you charge a battery to a 100% and get it down to 15 % or anything near everytime would hamper the life of any battery. So, I have this energy management by lenovo that will charge up the battery for a 60% and run on AC power.15:33
bekksvlaca: Which is slower than /dev/zero15:33
deadmundbekks: still figuring that out silly!15:33
bekksdeadmund: Then whats the hdd cache size of your hdd?15:33
mguyNERO_: That's baloney15:34
vlacabekks: yes, it definitely is, but is still might be faster than the drive's speed15:34
SpartanF31daftykins: ahhaah, it's public, opened.15:34
deadmundmguy: It's slowed down, now it's at like 29MB / s15:34
daftykinsSpartanF31: doesn't make it right.15:34
Sisterhi. after updating ubuntu 12.04 (not distro change, just regular update over a fresh install) the sound stopped working. my keyboard has a "mute key" that i press and ubuntu says the mute/unmute works, but the keyboard key keeps with the red light on as if it were always deactivated. and despite ubuntu saying it has unmuted, there's still no sound15:34
denebeimsevenforall: hit F10 while booting and watch what's happening.  There's like a thousand programs that get run when you're seeing 'dots'15:34
bekksvlaca: It might be faster, but not necessarilly.15:34
mguydeadmund: that's more like it15:34
bekksdeadmund: And now please give us the command you are running.15:34
FlowRiserNERO_, gnome-power-preferences, have you looked at it ?15:34
deadmundsudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdc1 bs=8M    and it's getting about 30MB/s15:35
NERO_mguy, I'm not trying to be a cynic or waste someone's time around here by creating an illusion or a hoax. What I mentioned about the battery is logical and sound.15:35
SpartanF31daftykins: i know, i'm sorry. But, my houselord doesn't want activate a flat, and the mobile 3g signal is very bad.15:35
sevenforalldenebeim: I figured the latter. Let me see.15:35
bekksdeadmund: And whats the hdd cache size of your disk?15:35
alex_FlowRiser: I installed it before (it was the one that comes with the pc)15:35
bekksdeadmund: And where is the count= parameter I told you to use several times now?15:35
Pinkamena_Ddoes anyone know how to do this? im in the place of public wifi now and still having the problem15:35
NERO_mguy, I'm not trying to be a cynic or waste someone's time around here by creating an illusion or a hoax. What I mentioned about the battery is logical and sound.15:36
vlacabekks: well I'll be damned... on my setup /dev/urandom comes at 14MB/s15:36
vlacadeadmund: use /dev/zero15:36
NERO_Flowriser, they dont make any impact.15:36
bekksvlaca: :P15:36
sevenforalldennenboom: It stops at 'Checking battery state'15:36
deadmundbekks: I'm getting around to it!15:36
deadmundbekks: gosh15:36
sevenforalldenebeim ^15:36
SpartanF31daftykins: however, stopping the samba server means i couldn't see other pc connected. Is it true'15:36
bekksdeadmund: Did you look it up at the manufacturers site?15:36
deadmundbekks: I didn't look up the cache size, i'm just empirically determining it15:37
bekksdeadmund: Well, then I am out of your ticket, good luck.15:37
Pinkamena_Dhow about just uninstalling an interface? how can i do that?15:37
daftykinsSpartanF31: you don't need to be sharing to connect to shares. i'm not sure if it stops it15:37
NERO_I've read the ubuntu forums and questions regarding the same from askubuntu.com, but they do not highlight any answers regarding lenovo G580 battery issues. Its more of the thinkpad genre there.15:38
deadmundsudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdc1 bs=16M count=3G   is a little faster at 31MB/s15:38
deadmundbekks: Thanks for the help :)15:38
daftykinsPinkamena_D: you still use 'ifconfig <interface> down' if it's a wifi interface15:38
Tex_NickNERO_ : i just entered channel ... saw your post about charging battery to 100% ... harms battery ... what type of battery are you refering to and how are you charging it ... older batteries had memory retention problems ... most newer batteries don't suffer from that :)15:38
SpartanF31ok, thanks... soon i'll try something.15:38
Pinkamena_Dthen if just comes back up in 10 seconds15:38
NERO_Tex_Nick If I may ask, to what memory retention were you implying?15:39
denebeimsevenforall: at the grub prompt edit the load line and put 'single' at the end15:39
Pinkamena_Dbecause the management software i assume15:39
note_llutz, didn't work :/ it logs me in but it can't send it out15:39
note_or receive15:39
sevenforalldenebeim: Holding shift, right?15:39
denebeimsevenforall: that stops the boot really early on.  then poke around /etc/init.d to find where it's checking for the battery15:40
denebeimsevernforall: I usually hit esc or the arrow keys when the boot menu comes up15:40
FlowRiserNERO_, you can make yourself a script, that will notify you when the battery reaches 60%, then just unpluc the ac power15:41
FlowRiserNERO_, if you are using Ubuntu 12.04, it15:41
sevenforalldenebeim: Btw, I can get into a console while it's stuck booting, can I continue from there?15:41
Tex_NickNERO_ : in particular most older NiCad batteries needed to be drained to about 5% or so before recharging ... if not they would not fully recharge ... that's OLD technology ... the rumor still exists though15:41
FlowRiserNERO_, it will be fairly simple ... using notify-send15:41
Pinkamena_Dok, here is a better question. how do i turn off the wireless management software if i canno control it the way i want15:41
Tex_NickNERO_ : was just wondering what issues you were having :)15:42
NERO_FlowRiser The whole point of my question is to have the adapter plugged as long as I'm using the laptop.15:43
denebeimsevenforall: Oh really?  That's bizarre, I've never seen anything like that.  ssh into the machine sometimes, sure, but not that.15:43
sevenforalldenebeim: I'm absolutely clueless of where to look in init.d15:43
Pinkamena_Di am a noob but i didnt think this would be [i]that[/i] complicated...15:43
Sisteroh wait. the mute key light goes on only if the headphones are connected15:44
FlowRiserNERO_, do you have a key combo (fn+f12 or smthng) that does that ?15:44
sevenforallI don't know if anyone can SSH into my machine and have a look15:44
denebeimsevenforall: those are the scripts that are run during initialization, I'd grep around for like 'battery' and so on to try to find which script is hanging.15:44

Sisterit says pulseaudio is running, xubuntu_ , but i have no access to anything related to it, i think. just alsamixer and the sound options16:23
ioriamedia-centre: did you install css ?16:23
Sisteryep, Tex_Nick . at least i can listen to music, though it's ridiculous to have to go there press buttons every single time ._.16:23
xubuntu_Sister, open pulse audio control and see the audio output settings16:24
media-centreok ill givee that a try16:24
Sistererm.. where is it or what is the terminal command, xubuntu_ ?  -_-16:24
Sister"pulseaudio" on terminal only says "daemon already running"16:24
media-centrewwhts the package called16:25
xubuntu_sister you can find it any tool like application earch16:26
Sisternope. nothing related to pulseaudio in the application search16:26
ioriamedia-centre: lbdvdnav - libdvdcss2  etc... etc ...16:27
xubuntu_Sister, if the daemon i running ..it must be there...16:27
OerHeksmedia-centre, follow this part https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/PlayingDVDs  libdvdread4 and install-css.sh16:27
OerHeksmedia-centre, restart VLC after that16:27
Sgt_ShultzInstall VlC, Sister, LOOK IN Ubuntu Software Center/Multimedia16:28
Sisteri have vlc16:28
Sgt_ShultzVLC should play ALL updated...16:29
Sisterthe volume meter for pulseaudio is not installed if that's what you mean, xubuntu_16:29
xubuntu_oh ok16:30
folornso any ideas how to get a new distro to run ? it came with a loader etc the works but just wont boot from the CD- ive got a hp labtop quite new so what gives if someone could help that would be great.16:30
media-centrerestricted extras16:30
media-centreyea i got that package16:30
Sisterinstalled it, same thing as alsamixergui, xubuntu_ . when i unplug/plug the headphones, the tab changes output to "headphones" and it's mute. if i change it to "speakers"  (with headphones connected) the headphones come back to life16:30
media-centreim running ubuntu 12.0416:30
Sisteralas, who knows what the hell that update did16:30
xubuntu_Sister, install it from software centre and hopefully  your issue would be resolved16:31
Sgt_ShultzSister,  look in log16:31
Sisteri already did, xubuntu_ . as i said, it's the same behavior as alsamixergui16:31
Sisterwhat, Sgt_Shultz ?16:32
rainbowwarriorhi, i am running Ubuntu 12.10 and I have some Sennheiser pc 8 headphones, my problem is I am no longer getting sound threw the headphones, how can i check to see if its detecting them and also fix the problem please ?16:32
rainbowwarrioras it was working before and now they aint :(16:32
Sgt_ShultzSister, in Ubuntu Software Center, HISTORY16:33
Sisterah, to see what the update did, Sgt_Shultz ?  it installed new headers, it seems16:34
Sisternew headers, some stuff for pidgin and something called libgtkspell0 and that's all.16:34
folornnobody has any ideas ?16:35
Sgt_ShultzSister,  hehe, life is fun isn't it16:35
media-centreok thanx for that16:35
Sisterand on the day before it updated pulseaudio too16:35
* rainbowwarrior slaps Ubuntu16:35
xubuntu_Sister, pulse audio16:35
denebeimYou know rainbowwarrior throwing things around just because they don't work doesn't help16:35
xubuntu_maybe problem lies there16:36
Sisteralways pulseaudio16:36
vlacarainbowwarrior: does it at least show up in dmesg?16:36
xubuntu_lol yeah16:36
Sisterhow do i shot web, xubuntu_ ? or rather, how do i kill it forever?16:36

BluesKajthe pulseaudio GUI , pavucontrol, might help with output and volume settings , Sister16:37
Sisterhave all those, BlueEagle . as i said, i can fix it, but it doesn't stay fixed if i unplug and re-plug16:37
folornso dunno what to do ioria16:38
Sisterthe worst part is that this is like the icing in the cake, as ubuntu already does not work with the hybrid card i currently have, being to use anything other than ubuntu 2d. so it's a shitstorm of utter annoyance16:38
t7after installing xmonad tty7 is allways blank after boot, i have to goto tty1 and work from there, why is this?16:38
BluesKajSister, hybrid card ?16:39

BluesKajthe other blue becomes annoyed if this keeps up16:40
vlacarainbowwarrior: try to unplug/plug and see if you get new entries in dmesg about Nvidia headphones... it might be some mis-detection16:40
folorncould i run the cd through virtual box or something maybe?16:40
rainbowwarriorvlaca  , nope no new entries16:41
noobvvwhen i hide booting screen with 'esc' i dont see anything... i want see booting process, so i can see what errors i get. how to do that ?16:41
Tex_NickSister have you tried ... in terminal ... ubuntu-bug audio16:42
vlacarainbowwarrior: what does lsusb tell you?16:42
BluesKajwhich sound card Sister ? The one in the post is a hybrid graphics card16:42
Sisteryou asked about what i was talking about with hybrid cards, that was the complaint, it's unrelated to the audio issue i came talk about. sorry for the confusion! :)16:43
ioriafolorn: you have to enter the bios ... in a way or in another16:43
folorni agree ioria..16:43
ioriafolorn: esc - canc - f1 don't work ?16:43
rainbowwarriorvlaca , http://paste.ubuntu.com/1552630/16:44
folornwell like F2 brings me into the bios menu but i looked around and couldn't find the damn bios option for boot sequence.. im very new to Hp's so dunno what to do really.16:44
xubuntu_Sister, i think the problem is with just settings of pulse audio write in terminal "pavucontrol" and check the input and output devices settings....16:45
Sgt_Shultzfolorn, I run Xubuntu on a HP D^, even got fingerprint scanner working with google search16:45
rainbowwarriorhmm looks like it is not detecting the headphones anymore :s16:45
Sgt_Shultzfolivora, DV616:45
ioriafolorn: there you are... good16:45
vlacarainbowwarrior: yeah... have you tried different usb ports?16:45
ioriafolorn: look for boot options and sub-menus16:46
Sisterok, xubuntu_ . maybe i wasn't clear. with pavucontrol running (the graphical thing), headphones unplugged. sound plays normally.  i plug headphones, the "output" drop menu goes from "speakers" to "headphones" and everything mutes. if i manually click the drop menu and select speakers (with the headphones plugged), the headphones work perfectly. the issue is having to do this manually every time i unplug and plug headphones16:46
rainbowwarrioryes, don't seem to matter what usb port I use, its not detecting them , let me try my headphones on another laptop to check my headphones are not broke :O16:47
folornbasically the issue Sgt_shultz is ive got a new BT 5 live cd i wanna play with but it wont run at start up and dunno how to make it do that ..ive looked for the boot sequence but dont know HP's very well so might have missed something.16:47
Sgt_Shultzfolorn, checking16:48
vlacarainbowwarrior: good idea16:48
folornthanks alot sgt_shultz16:49
ioriafolorn: don't panic ... and keep searching .... the option is there...16:49
klynccan anyone tell me how my particular model of dvdrw would have been written into /etc/udev/rules.d/ ? This must've been done by a script that scanned my hw at one point; I'd like to regenerate it16:49
Sgt_Shultzfolorn, ESC16:49
kunjifolorn: So for BIOS try all of f1, f2, f10, f11, f12, and del, will probably need a few boots to get the right one, and you might end up in something else before that (like the boot menu for choosing what to boot from just this time).16:49
xubuntu_Sister, whats the profile in configuration tab?16:50

BluesKajronnie, remastersys ? ..never heard of it16:56
xubuntu_or from package manager just reinstall16:56
Sisterah okay, i thought there should be a reinstall button somewhere that i wasn't seeing, xubuntu_ . thanks XD16:56
vlacaklync: also, see /lib/udev/rules.d/75-cd-aliases-generator.rules file16:56
kunjiTex_Nick: Also that would explain the cpu use, it probably just keeps rendering the blank screen as often as it can.16:56

dwarderi have installed i386 ubuntu 12.10 alongside windows 8 box (with uefi bios) and it doesn't allow me to boot into my ubuntu, i tried to use boot-repair (in try ubuntu mode) and it said that i should use x64 version of ubuntu, i have 2 questions: 1) if i remove widnows 8 can i use my 386 ubuntu install cd and use this ubuntu 2) are there other options for my 386 install?17:55
