k1l_!notunity | washuu_de00:11
ubottuwashuu_de: 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 !classic00:11
blkaddersammuchann: ClamAV seems to be the most commonly used solution.00:11

RamsramboHow do I add swap to my clean install now ? on ubuntu 12.1000:13
ukbeastSo I switch to gnome3?00:14
washuu_deShould I install  gnome-shell after the upgrade. Is that what ubotto wants to tell me?00:14
escott!gnome3 | ukbeast00:14
ubottuukbeast: GNOME 3 is the desktop environment on which Unity is based.  To use GNOME Shell instead of Unity, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool". GNOME 3 is not supported under Natty/11.04, and may break your system if installed from alternate sources.00:14

fbdystangHi, I have a ubuntu 11.04 server that I would like to manage remotely. What is the best and most effective way to do this?00:40
quinn_Probably SSH00:41
maheanuuA clean install does not upgrade the drivers all the time and like myself, after I did the last upgrade, I lost all my passwords and a lot more and have just about caught up again00:41
k1l_fbdystang: you should consider upgrading the server first. 11.04 is out of support00:41
fbdystangI am running an open ACS server that requires an old postgresql version, so updates don't work00:42
Ramsrambomaheanuu : what can I do now ? to get rid of this problem00:42
maheanuuWhere I am, no one uses Linux, and if they did they would not help, knowledge is power here, and you do NOT let that get away from you...   Bein an old navy chiefm, I believe that the more I work with others the more we both learn and the better off we all are, but that is just me00:43

dr_willisi rarely mess with keybindings.. some are handled by gnome some are handled by compiz01:44
memanddr_willis: True that :) I'm wondering why no one is taking up the task of making a better composite manager than compiz (that can do equally awesome stuff)01:46
dr_willismemand:  because its a thankless grueling task. ;)01:47
memanddr_willis: Aint everything made for Linux just that? ;)01:48
php42hello, how do i restore backups using backup-manager ?01:48

helloworldHello World! I have ubuntu installed, but i would like to switch to linux mint. my computer does not have a disk drive. does anyone know how to do this?01:51
craigbass1976memand, fixed brightness too!01:52
dr_willishelloworld:  you mean you have no cdrom drive?01:52
Hilikushow can i check if a burnt iso is not corrupted?01:52
jda2000helloworld, does you computer have PXE boot capability.01:52
memanddr_willis: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbrfy-HN4Gw01:52
dr_willis!md5 | Hilikus01:52
ubottuHilikus: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows01:52
helloworldthere is not optical drive, and i do not know what PXE boot capability is01:53
jda2000helloworld, Or should I say can it boot from the network adapter?01:53
dr_willisHilikus:  check the md5 sum of the burnt cd01:53
=== codezombie|away is now known as codezombie
helloworldit can do that01:53
dr_willishelloworld:  use a bootable flash drive.. and i really suggest just sticking to Ubuntu01:53
dr_willisthe cd also has some sort of verify option i thought01:53
Hilikusdr_willis: i saw that one, but it is to checksum the original iso and compare it to a number online, what i want is to checksum the created cd with all the files inside to see if it matches the content of the original iso01:53
jda2000helloworld, I guess I should have asked if you can boot from a flas drive first.01:54
dr_willisHilikus:  if the checksum of the burnt cd  is the same as the iso. that sort of confirms its good.01:54
memandjda2000: :P01:54
Hilikusdr_willis: how do i checksum a cd? it will give one checksum for each file, whereas the iso is a single file01:54
dr_willisHilikus:  i recall the live cds haveing some verify option that checked the files also.01:55

Crazy_SpaiQ: Is there a way to reset your theme and all with Unity?01:58
jda2000helloworld_, USB flash or DVD?01:58
Crazy_SpaiI have a weird issues where menu items have a white background but white text as well.01:58
Crazy_SpaiIt's quite buggy.01:58
quinn_I installed the proprietary AMD driver and now it has a watermark that says it's unsupported. I'm at a tty right now and I NEED THIS TO WORK VERY SOON. PLEASE HELP01:58
dr_willisCrazy_Spai:  all your settings are in .compiz and .config for the most part. You could rename those 2 dirs. and relog in01:58
quinn_I need to get back to the open source driver01:58
Crazy_Spaidr_willis: Thank you very much.01:58
adamkquinn_: So uninstall the proprietary driver.01:58
helloworld_when i booted from the usb, it said "non-system disk. press any key to reboot"01:58
quinn_How?01:58
dr_willisquinn_:  i belive theres a answer to that on askubuntu.com how to turnoff the watermark01:59
memandquinn_: What drivers did you install for what?01:59
quinn_flgrx or whatever for a Radeon 729001:59
adamkquinn_: Presumably you used the Ubuntu driver installer (jockey) to install the drivers, right, since that's the supported method?  Just use the jockey to turn it off.01:59
jda2000helloworld_, so it didn't get far enough along to break you ubuntu system.....01:59
quinn_But if the GUI doesn't work...01:59
adamkYou didn't say the GUI doesn't work...02:00
dr_willishttp://askubuntu.com/search?q=amd+watermark02:00
helloworld_jda2000: what does that mean02:00
quinn_I said I was at a TTY, but I can't be pedantic right now02:00
adamkquinn_: So use 'apt-get remove fglrx*' to remove fglrx.02:00
jda2000helloworld_, you can still boot ubuntu?02:00
adamkquinn_: Maybe you can't, but I can.  What you said is not the same as "the GUI isn't working" :-)02:00
julian-delphikithere are other ways to get to a TTY than having the gui not work02:01
julian-delphikiso, adamk is correct02:01
quinn_Okay, it's removing02:01
=== legacy is now known as leohxj
helloworld_jda2000: if I remove the flash drive or change the boot priority, ubuntu loads normally02:01
adamkquinn_: As dr_willis said, you could also go through the steps to remove the watermark, but you will also need to check the Xorg log file to see why Xorg failed in the first place.02:02
jda2000helloworld_, OK, how much free space do you have on your hard drive?02:02
quinn_Restarting the computer..02:02

quinn_I had another question - brightness adjustment doesn't work on my machine. The FN keys show the little toggle menu, and the bar will move according to how I press buttons02:04
quinn_But the brightness of the screen itself does not change.02:04
jda2000helloworld_, have you backe everything up?02:05

somsipfission6: so does your router have access to admin functions through SSH?02:50
Coreyecondudeawesome: 82 MB compressed>02:50
CoreyThis might take some time. :-)02:50
fission6well i mean its one device02:50
julian-delphikifission6: it's probably a port open for them to run diagnostics02:51
econdudeawesomeCorey: yeah, sorry. The actual crx files are only like 8 kb or so...02:51
julian-delphikifission6: however, it is a really old version of ssh...02:51
econdudeawesomethey're metadata for the .dbf files (which open fine with a spreadsheet program)02:51
Coreyecondudeawesome: Downloded.  Okay, let's see here.02:51
fission6julian-delphiki: i agree but still scary no?02:51
julian-delphikifission6: you could always ask them why it's open02:52
fission6i just may02:52
somsipfission6: and you are scanning externaly, like from ShieldsUp or somewhere? Not scanning from your PC?02:52
elise0001Did not work.02:52

fission6somsip yep, why do you ask02:52
julian-delphikisomsip: i just sucessfully connect to it, so yes, fission6 is talking externally02:52
fission6julian-delphiki: how did you connect just ssh?02:53
somsipfission6: because routesr can allow some ports from LAN but denies from WAN. So they appear open on an nmap scan by me, but not from elsewhere02:53
julian-delphikifission6: yes02:53
julian-delphikisomsip: that's not the case here02:53
fission6i think its opened for the ISp02:54

vjacobhiya. any ideas on how to proceed with an upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04, if "do-release-upgrade -d" only gives "No new release found" ?02:54
julian-delphikivjacob: does it do anything without the -d?02:55
vjacobthe /etc/lsb-release on the system contains "normal"02:55
vjacobsorry /etc/release-upgrades. meanwhile, /etc/lsb-release correctly reflects the installed system02:56

Dionist_How about anyone else who can actually *help* rather than just "Here's a guide! ....oh. Then download something different or make your own."04:03
julian-delphikiDionist_: no one here will probably be able to troubleshoot a custom conky config04:04
b_i just tried to `mv` a dir and it failed with the error msg, 'Directory not empty' what is this about?04:04
OerHeksDionist_, how could we help, if we have not seen your conky script ? use paste.ubuntu.com for multiple lines04:04
Dionist_julian-delphiki Even if I link to said config package?04:05

bazhangDionist_, the guide is how to understand making conky work, contact the custom config maker if you have issues. the guide itself is not a panacea for any and all custom configs out there04:05

dr_willisdepending on how  quickly you stopped the chmod command...04:41
CrazyZurferKind of quickly04:41

Seven_Six_TwoRabblerouser, you can have partitions larger than that, and you can use usb drives that are whole, or partitioned.05:18

BlackWeb the one I selected as the one set but its not using it, Does Edubuntu Package overwrite Ubunut tweak or where is the setting for this?05:37

wing_yeah I'm not sure that's where the problem is05:41
cfhowlettBlackWeb, try sudo apt-get purge edubuntu05:41
cfhowlettwing_,  if your wired can see the internet, it's NOT  a DNS issue.05:41

cfhowletttacorwin if you need daily ubuntu, you can install virtualbox in win and put ubuntu on that ... safely05:42
wing_i really don't know where to start for something like this cfhowlett so I came here05:42
cfhowlettwing_, understood.05:42
user02938tarcorwin, from past experience, ubuntu on usb runs horribly slow and updates can fail.  Might depend on the quality and speed of your usb05:43
dr_willisyoga:  what was the exact command you used?05:43
cfhowlettwing_, does your wifi indicator light up?  and what is your hardware?05:43
tacorwincfhowlett: My main issue is that i have a portable computer, but i cant install it because the flash memory is all corrupted from extended use.05:43
wing_yeah it connects fine, it's a vaio, the light is on, everything seems cool until I open browser and it acts like it's not connected05:44
cfhowletttacorwin, ummm, we cannot work around hardware failures with software.05:44
cfhowletttacorwin, so I guess USB is the way to go05:44

wing_ok ping 8.8.8.8 works fine also05:47

ActionParsnipTechnikfreak: could install squid or snort and use that as a proxy, could use a dedicated box then pull up monthly logs etc08:51
dr_willisGiven the size of 'protecting' the network. You have to really defin what you want to let them do and not do.. theres not going to be a single perfect answer08:51

justmehthus my disagreement ;)09:56
ikoniaThinkT510 I'm not saying learning is bad, but randomly doing things that can potentially ruin your files...unwise09:57
dns53gpg is relatively straight forward, gpg --encrypt --recipient 'email@host' filename,   just export the public key to the user running the script and you do not need a password to encrypt09:57
CQdr_willis: -X enables, -x disables according to the manpage09:57

dr_willisCQ:  jusat checking.. seen people get them reversed.. i always just setit to alwaysforward.09:58

meghais that true that after installing once we have to install it again and again when a new version of ubuntu is available ?11:08
Ben64you can upgrade11:08
justmehmegha, upgrades are pretty easy11:08
justmehin fact it will tell you when one is out by default IIRC11:08
Slingyes, in the motd11:09
justmehSling, think desktop11:09
justmehmotd can do that also -- but that's typically server11:09
Slingsorry, I'm more of a server guy :)11:09
justmehyou can force a check, lets see, something like 'update-manager -d' or so11:09
Slingbut anyway, best way is probably to subscribe to the announce list11:09
justmehSling, i hear ya ;)11:09
justmehya11:09
justmehwhen ur system checks for packages it should be checking for releases11:10
justmehdaily / weekly / whatever its set to11:10
meghaso only 1 install will last longer and no need to reinstall on new version release..11:10
justmeh@ megha it is true that a package may be updated several to dozens of times a year11:10
justmehso you would need to download new versions as they come out - IF it matters to you11:10
justmehyou don't have to update I suppose, but i doubt very many people would cosign that as good behavior ;)11:11
justmehmegha, yeah, you will end up with a few extra packages here and there, but for the most part you can just upgrade again and again11:11
meghaso just doing regular updates is fine :)11:11
justmehsure ;)11:11
meghathat's cool :)11:11
justmehI tell mine to check and offer updates daily11:11
Ben64megha: until a new version of ubuntu comes out, then you should upgrade11:11
justmehBen64, don't confuse the package view with the os overall view11:12
justmehtrue for os view, but don't run packages without checking for updates for 6 months11:12
Ben64i don't think he's asking about packages11:12
justmehben64 this is a help chan, so i tend to give a bit extra infoz11:12
antonio_does anyone here use Kdenlive?  For some reason playback is all screwed up...all the clips are playing double speed11:12

justmehnot it @ antonio_11:13
antonio_?11:13
Ben64megha: LTS versions released every 2 years, normal versions every 6 months11:13
justmehben64 - also biggest difference, is the normal versions keep more advanced packages11:14
justmehthe LTS versions _tend_ to keep more stable packages11:14
Ben64yep11:14
meghaBen64: so for eg if i  am  installing LTS version right now and say after 2 years i can upgrage to newer LTS without reinstalling the whole system ?11:14
Ben64megha: correct11:14
justmeh^_^11:14
justmehsuccess!!11:15
meghacool11:15
megha:) :D11:15
Ben64next LTS is April 201411:15
meghaeven this is true for norval versions ?11:15
justmehand lts has extended support now, right ben? 5yrs instead of 3?11:15
meghanormal*11:15
Ben64normal versions don't last as long11:15
justmehmegha, normal versions expire in 18 months11:15
Ben64justmeh: yes11:15
justmehbut you can mirror repos if you need to11:15
meghaso after 18 months i have to reinstall my system ?11:16
Ben64best to do it after 6 months on normal releases11:16
Ben64or else you have to upgrade a few times at once11:16
eruptermegha, you can keep on going just like lots of machines with winxp or ubuntu 8 do...11:16
Ben64then you miss out on security updates and bug fixes11:17
justmehmegha, let me break down for u11:17
justmehtoday: 12.10 normal. 6 months: 13.04 normal, and so forth, this works very well11:17
justmehtoday: 12.10 normal, 1 yr from now 13.10 normal; this works not so great11:17
justmehtoday: 12.10 normal, 2 yrs from now (after 12.10 is fully dead for a few months) 14.04 - probably break11:18
justmehso, when upgrading go one step at a time in the same line of releases11:18
justmehnormal upgrades normal, LTS upgrades LTS11:18
headcr4shjustmeh: I figured out the root cause of my problem (somehow) -- my DHCP client configuration contains a "request ntp-servers" section. So... obviously the DHCPClient was responsible for keeping my system time synced (usually a great mechanism, but as mentioned... I NEED to set my system time to a bogus value for some tests).11:18
meghajustmeh: till what i understand is you are trying to say that that there is no need to reinstall the system when you are moving from 12.10 to 13.10 just a upgrage does your work11:18
erupterjustmeh, I thought the only distro supposedly able to upgrade where the LTS ones, not the others...11:18
headcr4sh@ justme, others : thanks for your input anyways.11:19
meghasorry 12.10 to 13.0411:19
headcr4sh:-)11:19
justmehmegha, for 12.10 to 13.10 do 12.10->13.041->13.1011:19
justmehyeah11:19
Ben64megha: yeah you can go 12.10 -> 13.04 -> 13.10 -> 14.04, or 12.04 -> 14.0411:19
justmeh@ headcr4sh - ok once your hwclock is good, then system time games can begin11:20
justmehlets see here11:20
meghathat's what i wanted to know it's cool to go on with your current ubuntu without reinstalling it :D :D :D11:20
justmehyeah11:20
justmehand if you really wanna do a big upgrade and be safe, you can dump your installed packages list, either from command line or synaptic, and you can also backup your /home/$USER directory11:21

ubottugoudkov there you go: aptitude is another terminal-based front-end to APT. You may encounter problems on multiarch installs (11.10 and higher) as aptitude cannot currently handle the same package with different architectures being installed at the same time. See http://pad.lv/831768 for more information.13:08

hambone2oh, nice, not much chatting atm, confused me.13:43
cfhowletthambone2, this is the support channel.  general chit chat is in #ubuntu-offtopic13:44
BluesKajyeah ,real busy in here today13:44
cfhowlettBluesKaj, must mean those *buntu systems are working right!13:45
hambone2I use Ubuntu on my own computer and like it very much. Thanks for the great experience, but... my dad's new computer came with Windows8 and it is messed up. I wanted to just put Ubuntu on it, but the new computer is like locked up or something with that new "secure boot" that is preinstalled on some Dell computers.13:46
goshHateseverything written before a "but" is superfluous :D13:46

FlowRisercfhowlett,  yes, same thing on my school computer ... O.o13:47
FlowRisercan't even boot of usb because of password, can't install from wubi ... i'm stuck using windows13:47
* cfhowlett *wubi* shudder ...13:47
Ben64they keep saying secure boot won't stop linux or anything, but so many people have problems with it13:48

ericshelldoes anyone know how to add a window manager manually built to the list of available managers at the login screen of ubuntu 12? i cant remember, been a while13:49
hambone2So, here is my question: Is there a way to download an image file on my Ubuntu computer, burn that image to a DVD with Brasero and then use that DVD to start the UEFI computer? I'm confused because when I went to download Ubuntu for Windows it offered me a file with an .exe extention, which I don't think will work right as a booter.13:49
ericshellbuilt e16 but cant get it to list at the login screen13:50
cfhowlettBluesKaj, you?  I heard PXE is the method for a no drive option ... or USB13:50
BluesKajI meant FlowRiser , no cdrom or usb13:50
BluesKaj?13:50
cfhowletthambone2, ubuntu for windows is wubi.  Not recommended except for testing ubuntu13:50
FlowRiserBluesKaj, it has a password on bios and it's set to boot from the hdd first O.o13:50
Ben64FlowRiser: get rid of the password13:51
FlowRiserI know, but that would mean opening the case!13:51
Ben64yep13:51
BluesKajwhat about boot sequence ..perhaps gparted on media can help ?13:52
FlowRiseri think those pcs are new or something, coul void their warranty ... Plus, i doubt the teacher won't notice me  opening the case.13:52
maxagaz_do you know a tool to convert a psd image to gimp xfc image (keeping all the elements of the image) ?13:52
FlowRiserBluesKaj, i tried that ...13:52

FlowRisermaxagaz_, yes, use gimp13:53

hambone2Thank you cfhowlett, but the new Win8 machine won't even boot up at all. The Win8 OS is refusing to boot, plus I hated it anyway, but when I went to load up Ubuntu it wouldn't recognize the boot disk because or "secure boot." I will read the blue link from ubottu...13:56

FlowRiserBluesKaj, i tried booting of cd, usb, wubi, assisted boot, parting a partition and installing manually on that (didn't have enough permisiions to do that)13:59
hambone2@cfhowlett, yes, we will take the machine back to the store if we can't get Ubuntu loaded, but are trying to avoid that because we live way out in the country and the store is miles away. I think I see the solution on the ubottu link. It says download the 64 bit version on Ubuntu and it will be able to talk to the newfangled laptops.13:59

ThinkT510!mini | Makdaam14:49
ubottuMakdaam: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD14:49

leecyoccasionally, Ubuntu will cease listening to the devices and won't resume listening until restarted15:14
heywoodwhat are the best options for remote accessing an ubuntu box behind a firewall/NAT router from outside the network? is the current version of ssh and related tools considered to be secure? i have 12.04.1 LTS.15:16
leecydmesg results shows a barrage of errors hub_port_status failed (err = -110)15:16
deadmundheywood: yes, ssh is very secure15:16
leecyI was able to get to dmesg because I also have a PS/2 keyboard and mouse set on the computer- this seems to happen with every distro I use15:17
orudieHi. I am running ubuntu 12.04 with two monitors. When I switch between desktop workspaces (with "ctrl+alt left, right), it shifts two desktop spaces left or right. Is there a way to change it so that it shifts only one workspace, instead of two ?15:19
leecyany idea why this can happen? I also have two Wintel boxes and a Mac connected to the same KVM, and they don't exhibit this behavior.15:19
heywooddeadmund: ok, ssh gets me a root shell for basic admin tasks. if i want to do something fancier (tunneling a VNC connection through it, exporting a display, etc.), what else would i need to install? something like vncviewer?15:19
deadmundheywood: You should never ssh as root or allow the root user to ssh.  YOu should ssh as yourself (a normal user) and then use sudo or su if you need to.15:20
deadmundheywood: To vnc you need to install vncviewer :P  I can find a guide if you need more specifics.  BTW, vnc over the Internet is slow.15:20
deadmundheywood: http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/dtg/attarchive/vnc/sshvnc.html15:21
deadmundheywood: ssh -X (referred to as x forwarding) is more efficient15:21
Wiz_KeeDhelp! :(15:22
heywooddeadmund: ah, ok. but i'm a little confused about ubuntu's users setup. right now the root password is not enabled (as per ubuntu default), but my one user account is labelled as administrative.15:22
heywooddeadmund: so i can ssh into the box as myself, then sudo for admin stuff.15:22
heywooddeadmund: i have a remote X server running here so ssh -X would work just fine.15:23
deadmundheywood: Yeah, your account is administrative meaning you can assume the identity of root (by using sudo).  Sudo users your own password to switch to the root user, thus there is not root password15:23
deadmundheywood: ssh as yourself, then use sudo, that is correct15:23
deadmundheywood: ssh -X is great :)15:23
heywooddeadmund: so is it the case than an "administrative" user is just incloded in sudoers?15:23
enblocwhen using ssh with X forwarding, if I run firefox on the remote machine, it appears to see if I have one running locally, and it then opens a tab in my local firefox, refusing to create a new instance on the remote machine (which may not have the same network visibility). I've tried to disable this, but my googlefu is weak, and I can't accurately and uniquely describe the problem in searchable terms.15:24

Lofde_I am using ubuntu, i have a hard drive that i took out of a windows 8 machine, it has all kinds of weird partitions an ESP 524mb fat, DIAGS 42 fat, Unknown 134mb, WINRETOOLS 524MB NTFS, an OS partition 491GB, and a PBR Image 7.8GB NTFS.. i did a "sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdd bs=512" and wrote 0's to the entire drive, but i still cant 'format' the drive, when i try to ask for a password to authenticate can anyone help?15:26
heywooddeadmund: ok. so since i have everything else set up, is it just a matter of starting sshd (manually, via init.d, etc.) on the ubuntu box then?15:27
deadmundheywood: If you installed openssh-server it will be started by default for you (already placed in init.d)15:27
heywooddeadmund: ah, ok. i haven't (yet). do you know if the post-install scripts run by apt would start it?15:28
deadmundheywood: I don't know if it starts after install...15:29
deadmundheywood: you can start it: sudo service sshd start15:29
bonoLofde_: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdd even zeroes the partition table; you need a new one. I recommend gparted15:29
BluesKajLofde_, this might help , but since you've aready tried write 0s to drive , dunno if it will work , http://askubuntu.com/questions/221835/installing-ubuntu-on-a-pre-installed-uefi-supported-windows-8-system15:30
heywooddeadmund: that's easy enough. last thing: my router can do port forwarding (though it's not set up right now). as i recall, ssh listens on port 22. is there any security benefit in forwarding some high-numbered port from the WAN to 22 on the LAN side?15:30
Lofde_these uefi pc's are making me so mad... i had to change all kinds of bios settings to install windows 7 to that computer and replace the drive to get it to function... no one likes windows 8 :/15:30
goshHatesLofde_ thats why they force us to use that shit :]15:31
goshHatesno1 would use win8 if it wasnt such a pain in the ass to change the os =D15:31
goshHatesbut its even more cruel to use win8, so its worth the time changing :>15:31
deadmundheywood: I'm glad you brought that up! ! :)15:32
BluesKajlof  it's not windows 8 itself , it MS trying to become more proprietary and prevent , or making it a PITA to install other OSs in guise of security features15:32
BluesKajLofde_,^'15:32
Lofde_**f*cking windows 8.... get bill gates in here**15:33
deadmundheywood: generally, using a non-standard port is rather effective at hiding from script kiddies.  However, this is security through obscurity.  Basically you're not hiding in a better place, just a different place.  So... yeah.  What's better is to use some of the automated systems that automatically block brute force attempts by watching logs and editing a blocklist.15:33

Astradeusubuntu-precise: how can i find the package which created a user/group? (ssl-cert or scanner for example)15:35
deadmundheywood: yes, have fun!  Easiest thing might be to ssh in, shut off ssh and then go there yourself when you get a chance15:35
Wiz_KeeDCan someone please help me remove repositories form 12.04? :(15:35
Wiz_KeeDi tried editing the source.list and i see no extra repository there maybe i missed something :(15:36
heywooddeadmund: i will certainly do that when i'm there next. but i need to do some admin in the meantime, so stopping sshd altogether won't work.15:36
heywoodi'll try sshguard and fail2ban, as you suggested.15:36
deadmundheywood: If it's short term there is very low chance the brute force attacks will work.  Especially if you have an ever remotely good password15:37

Wiz_KeeDthat's why i wanted to remove it, how can i remove it? :(15:53
MonkeyDust!ppa-purge15:53
ubottuTo disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html15:53

jordanrainSo I followed a tutorial to change my login screen wallpaper, and now I just get a blank screen and can't do anything :/ Anyway of repairing this besides reinstalling?18:21
freakynlSoelen: ok, so when you go to say http://whatever whatever can not be resolved (in this case by definition as whatever is not a fqdn, whatever.com would but but if that does not resolve the same applies)18:22
freakynlso your dns client adds the search domain, fritz.box in this case, making the request whatever.fritz.box18:23
freakynlyour router (a fritz box apparently :)) has a dns file stating *.fritz.box points to that IP18:23

Soelenfreakynl: in other words it is only possible by creating a subdomain for fritz.box like whatever.fritz.box18:24
=== daftykin1 is now known as daftykins
freakynlso there's a bunch of things you can do, remove the search domain, use another dns server, change the DNS server on the fritzbox if that's possible. Any of them can solve the issue, the middle one alone doesn't please people though as your box will regularly send requests for something.fritz.box to an external DNS server then who doesn't know what to do with it18:25
Ian_CorneGreetings18:26
freakynlSoelen: Oh, I misread, thought you had the issue that http://notarealdomain went to that box, but yes, you can set up a dns server that responds with whatever IP on whatever request you send it18:26

I personally don't have a preference, but if you feel more comfortable with one than the other ;). Proxy will need to be setup on client (although you could use auto config or something) DNS server (and search domain) can be pushed with DHCP (if they override the DNS to 8.8.8.8 for examp18:31

xj54yHey, I was curious as to how I could get both my 10/100/1000 NIC and WLAN NIC to become managed with network-manager (and respectively, nm-applet). Right now, neither one can be managed as they're not available it appear. However, they're manageable via command line (e.g., iwconfig/wpa_cli/ifconfig)18:48
daftykinsxj54y: if you've got any manual config in /etc/network/interfaces that will stop NM working18:49
xj54ydaftykins, I had thought the same thing, which leads me to my next question. Ever since I've installed ubuntu, upon boot, the boot takes SO LONG as ubuntu is trying to figure the networking thing about, then gives it another 60 seconds... How could I go about removing that from my init script? (Management of all services actually per run level wouldn't hurt to know either)18:51

ubottuwachpwnski: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; with the exception of 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), which will be supported for 5 years on the desktop. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Precise (Precise Pangolin 12.04)20:13
k1lwachpwnski: that is the 12.04. its focused on stability20:13

heliosI already have ubuntu on the ssd, due to some problems I decided to do a fresh install: e.g. pick the option to format the drive and lose all the data on it from the ubuntu installer.

Mamo-chanthanks21:37
ephesiusGA89: no, the 64 won't work I thought maybe you were using the wrong disk image21:37

jhutchinsbianca: The OLD answer - the one that worked - was to build a 32b install for running 32b, either as a multi-boot or a VM.22:35
biancawhaat..22:35
biancacan linux do anything..22:35
jhutchinsbianca: Asking the ATI drivers to do multiarch when multiarch is not really working yet is a lot.22:35
biancaso what do i do? just not have open gl? let my $300 graphics card go to waist?22:36
jhutchinsbianca: I haven't used windows as anything but a dumb terminal to run linux since 2004.22:36
rasabinhello how are people the linux22:37
=== alusion_ is now known as k4tZz
jhutchinsbianca: You play games written for linux, or somethng like steam's new stuff.22:37
jhutchinsbianca: What program is complaining about the 32b libs?22:37
biancahow can i play games with no renderer22:37
k1l_jhutchins: i think the program used is playonlinux22:37
ActionParsnipbianca: linux does lots22:37
jhutchinsbianca: You have a renderer.  You wouldn't expect to run the games on a mac.22:38
biancaexceot utilize my graphics card22:38
biancamac has plenty of games22:38
biancasteam supports mac22:38
ActionParsnipbianca: which video chip do you have?22:38
jhutchinsSeriously, why run Windows games on a Linux box anway?  Run them in Windows.22:38

nanderdoes anyone here have experience with vsftpd?22:39
bekksnander: Why?22:40
SonikkuAmericadingo311: I did, sorry I didn't respond22:40
nanderI want to limit anonymous access to a certain ip-range, while keeping all ip's open for authenticated traffic22:40
nanderthe ip-range is a /16 ipv4 range22:40
ActionParsnipbianca: you don't need to manually download the driver, or visit any site and download them22:40
SonikkuAmericadingo311: Weird. Are other changes in other programs persistent22:40
SonikkuAmerica?22:40
biancai give up22:40
dingo311SonikkuAmerica: its all good, i see you are busy22:40
mikemonkwhich terminal emulator would you recommend for windows? are there better alternatives than putty?22:41
jhutchinsSonikkuAmerica: THe problem is the 32b ATI drivers in a 64b env, and I don't even know that it's a problem, but it's certainly a stretch to run software on the wrong OS on the wrong arch.22:41
biancathis is just me repeating myself over and over and over and over and over and over22:41
ActionParsnipbianca: what is the output of:  cat /etc/issue22:41
jhutchinsbianca: Steam also supports linux now.22:41
biancaidk what that means22:41
bekksnander: Never heard of a setup like that - and you cant distinguish between authed/anon access until the user finally authed/used anon access.22:41
ActionParsnipbianca: in a terminal, run the command. What is output?22:41
jhutchinsActionParsnip: She's on 12.10.22:42
bekksnander: So technically, you cant close IPs for anon access.22:42
nanderdamm..22:42
dingo311SonikkuAmerica: seems to be, alsamixer is the only thing i'v tried and got that error, this is a fresh install too. installed ssh, apache, a few other things and nothing else.22:42
nanderSo I have to choose to block anon access or to use ip tables and block users I want to be able to authenticate?22:42
ActionParsnipbianca: ok, then run:  sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle     and reboot. Done.22:43
biancaUbuntu 12.10 \n \l22:43
ActionParsnipbianca: did you do that?22:43
biancayes22:43
bekksnander: Correct. Thats because you only know wether a user uses anon access AFTER entering the credentials.22:43
ActionParsnipbianca: have you tried running: sudo aticonfig --initial22:43
SonikkuAmericadingo311: Weird.22:43

swHi, if I have a 512 MB / 1 CPU / 20 GB SSD Disk server, should I run 12.10 32-bit or 64-bit?22:49
ActionParsnipbianca: instead of trying to guess how things work in an OS you are clearly not versed with, why not try and find guides on how to do it properly, you'll be less frustrated when what you think is how something is done doesn't work22:49
SonikkuAmericadingo311: 777 maybe?22:49
ActionParsnipbianca: i gave you the official how to, and you clearly haven't read it22:49

rbookhouseWhen my pc does absolutely nothing (even when its been doing nothing for hours) the hard disk light still blinks every 2 seconds or so... is there a way to completely stop the light blinking (without physically cutting the connection) - the pc is in a bedroom and its very annoying22:50
ActionParsnipbianca: right before you wrote 'i give up'22:50

codephobicI installed debian on a second hd (sdb) but within a logical partition. I'm not sure if that affects anything.22:50

Dizzlerbookhouse put a piece of tape over it?22:51

codephobicseems to be already installed22:52
codephobickatsumeblisk, I installed debian squeeze.22:52
rbookhouseDizzle, it does - but i want it to stop blinking - not hide the fact its blinking22:52
katsumebliskcodephobic: After Ubuntu?22:52
codephobickatsumeblisk, yes22:52
katsumebliskcodephobic: When it asked to install a boot loader, did you pick no?22:52
codephobickatsumeblisk, the problem is that I didn't install grub at the end of the debian install... I figured Ubuntu's grub2 would pick it up, but not working.22:53
dingo311SonikkuAmerica: in alsamixer, i press f2 for sys info and it closes22:53
codephobickatsumeblisk, I did pick "no", thinking grub2 (ubuntu) would find it.22:53
codephobicinstead grub2 finds old (removed) instances of debian and ubuntu, rather than the fresh install22:54
katsumebliskcodephobic: Can you run update-grub and post the output to pastebin?22:54
codephobicI think I need to clean up grub22:54
