filantropus?00:30
dblinxHow... clam found 20 infectioned fikea00:30

scristopheri like to get the base64 encoded crap and decode it, save it for later study myself00:31
filantropusi'm installing it from the java page00:31
escottfilantropus, java is insecure. you should be very wary of using java in a webbrowser00:31

dblinxOk... wil try that and see00:34
escottMyrtti, that doesn't change the recommendation not to use it.00:35

damselfly9kouriinu; when you said you tried 3 different cd's, did you download each separately or did you just try using the same iso image three times?00:48

escottguest29584, you certainly won't find anyone with grub knowledge here. its not like ubuntu uses grub or anything00:57
damselfly9oh. just thought of something, what are the chances that the first ubuntu boot that worked wrote some garbage back to the cd because it was being booted in a burner?00:58
kouriinui will try that but i can figure out how to make it bootable on my usb iv looked at videos but dont understand i guess im techilogically stupid00:58

guest29584escott: As far as I know, the correct boot device is selected. I was paraphrasing a long message in a few words. I am running on an Ubuntu live CD now, and I can see, mount, browse, etc. the two drives in question. I tried a simple sudo ubdate-grub, but got "/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: cannot find a device for / (is /dev mounted?)."01:26
escottguest29584, if you are going to update grub from the livecd you need to chroot first. did you do that? do you know how to do that? your grub.cfg looks ok01:26
escottguest29584, i would write down or take a  picture of the error message you are getting so we can figure out exactly where it is coming from01:28
guest29584escott: Oops, sorry, s/ubdate/update/  No, this is the first time anything like this has happened. Do you have a link?01:28
escottguest29584, i would not waste your time with a chroot just yet01:28
guest29584escott: OK, I will write the message down if/when I reboot. In the meantime, is there a place where I can look at likely suspect messages from grub2?01:29
guest29584escott:  (Perhaps I can identify it from memory.)01:30

ubottuUbuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Gufw (GNOME) and Guarddog (KDE from Lucid onwards) also exist.03:06

puffI'm looking at a forum thread about downloadnig libc and manually extracting ldconfig, but I'd like to understand what went wrong to begin with.03:45
TheLordOfTimemisterswag, this is why symlinks exist: you don't need to copy them all over if they exist elsewhere, just set up the symlink with the command i gave you03:46
misterswagoh im trying to move it out of /var/lib03:46
misterswagsince its limited space03:46
misterswag:)03:46

CryptoSeccraigbass1976: should I use the cupswrapper or LPR driver? It's the first time I came across such a decision for my printer?03:47
misterswagTheLordOfTime, so my objective is copy it out to /srv/ and symlink it back03:47
TheLordOfTimemisterswag, erm... i don't advise that, since the mysql executable uses /var/lib/mysql...03:47
TheLordOfTimes/executable/process/03:47
misterswagyeah so cant i cp it to /srv/mysql03:48
misterswagand symlink it back to /var/lib/mysql03:48
TheLordOfTimemisterswag, ideally first, you turn off the mysql process first...03:48
misterswagyes i did03:48
TheLordOfTimemisterswag, then sudo mv /var/lib/mysql /srv/mysql03:48
TheLordOfTimethen sudo ln -s /srv/mysql /var/lib/mysql03:48
TheLordOfTimebut I HIGHLY recommend you don't do that03:48
misterswagwill it get messy?03:48
TheLordOfTimemisterswag, just because mysql is weirdly tempermental03:48
misterswagi see03:49
craigbass1976CryptoSec, I can't remember.  We have an MFC at work and I don't remember which one I grabbed -- that was three years ago.  Anyone else?  Is LPR or cupswrapper a better bet to grab from Brother's website?03:49

TheLordOfTimemisterswag, that's going outside my expertise, but i don't think it'd be easy to set up03:50

CryptoSeccraigbass1976: I did some Google search and I found that LPR is more command line and cups has more gui front end to it... so it just matters what the user is comfortable and his preference.03:52

seelI know that I need to save the file in ~/.irssi/scripts but it puts it in the home folder and I'm not sure how to save scripts where things are hidden and all05:19
dr_willisseel:  you just use the full path.05:19
dr_willisseel:  or use ctrl-h to have the file manager show .whatever files05:19
dr_williscp foo  ~/.whatever/whever05:20
majnoonok installed pa vol control (not correct name) did EXACTALLY what i wanted :)05:20
dr_willisor  hit ctrl-l and type in the path in the file manager05:20
Soelenwhat is going on with my webserver?05:21
dr_willisSoelen:  checked your logs yet?05:22
seelso using nano, how would I do that exactly?05:22
dr_willisseel:  save it to ~/.irssi/scripts05:22
seelI have the script in there but to save it in the right place...05:22
Soelendr_willis: kinda, I guess those logs on var/www/apache2, but I didnt found any hints there05:22
seelwhen I did that it said permission denied05:22
dr_willisor save it to your home directory then copy it to ~/.irssi/scripts05:22
SoelenI am not even sure if it's the webserver or something else05:23
dr_willisseel:  you sure that directory exists?05:23
dr_willisseel   mkdir ~/.irssi/scripts05:23
seelyeah, I did that already05:23
keplerdid you do it as root?05:23

seellooking it up, it actually shows the file is already there in the right place05:27
seells ~/.irssi/scripts/bitlbee_rename.pl05:27
seelthat's the file, so that's right05:27
dr_willisuse 'cat' instead of ls - to verify the proper stuff is IN the file05:28
dr_willisand use  'ls -l'   instead of ls to veryify the ownership and permissions  of the file05:28
dn40alias05:29
seel_got disconnected for some reason...05:30
seel_but yeah, when I try to load it I just get a permission denied for some reason05:30
koveras0927even as root?05:30
seel_I'm not logged in as root, no05:31
dr_willisseel_:  may  be time to check the irssi docs and the #irssi channel05:31
dr_willisand use ls -l to verify the permissions and ownwership of the file   and 'cat' to verify its contents05:31
seel_ok05:32
koveras0927so irssi is an irc program and you're having trouble installing it?05:32
dr_willishes having trouble getting a script he made to load in it05:32
seel_well, and each new script I create or download has to be given permission to be executible, right?05:32
koveras0927oh05:32
koveras0927ha way above me, I'm not really there yet05:33
dr_willisseel_:  no idea on that in irssi. i dont see why it would need to be executable..  the #irssi channel woul dbe the place to ask05:33
seel_someone else's script but yeah, it's for facebook actually05:33
dr_willisI perfer weechat to irssi05:33

tim_i have a question about what type of linux to use on a netbook05:47
penguinmancfhowlett: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1571847/05:47
koveras0927depends on the netbook05:47
ludI got a chrome netbook, the 200$ one, any advise on installing ubuntu?05:47
koveras0927I think that was mentioned earlier, one sec.05:48
cfhowlettpenguinman, thank you.  Will see if I can drill under the firewall ...05:48

cfhowlettpenguinman, it has it's moments.  Interestingly, the easiest exploit to configure was facebook.  twitter and youtube are pretty well locked down.05:50
donnieTrue or false. I run Xunbuntu. and I want to remove Thunderbird. Since I'm on Xubuntu. It's safe to "remove xfce desktop' and my xubuntu will be untouched05:50
penguinmandonnie: yeah, it's just a meta package05:50
flashtonic32i05:51
koveras0927tim_: I'd say you should stick with xubuntu or lubuntu05:52

koveras0927yeah it's easy, about as easy as any regular ubuntu installation05:56
Noskcaj cfhowlett, isn't it: sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop?05:56
Noskcajor lubuntu-core05:57
cfhowlettNoskcaj, errr ... I think it's desktop.  Thanks.05:57
Noskcajcfhowlett, np.05:57
tim_im still on windows 705:57
tim_just plannig what to do a dual boot with05:58
Noskcajtim_, both have pro's and con's. but please don't use windows 805:58
cfhowlettNoskcaj, help me out ...05:58
koveras0927windows 8 makes me sad.05:58
Noskcajcfhowlett, yeah, what05:58
cfhowletttim_, if you don't have to go windows 9, don't05:58
Noskcajkoveras0927, let's hope windows blue fixes that05:58
cfhowlettNoskcaj, please state the correct command for tim_ to get lubuntu DE05:58
tim_XD i would kill windows on my netbook but i need it for school05:59
koveras0927from windows i don't think there is one, just download it from the xubuntu website, use unetbootin to install it to a flash drive, and boot off the flash drive05:59
Noskcajtim_, install either lubuntu-desktop (all of the stuff from the iso) or lubuntu-core (just the DE (i think))05:59
koveras0927or lubunu06:00
Noskcajkoveras0927, Wubi?06:00
Noskcajkoveras0927, use LiLi instead, it's better06:00
tim_oh right. for linux you can mix and match06:00
cfhowlettNoskcaj, there it is.  sudo apt-get install lxde06:00
koveras0927Noskaj: I've never actually used LiLi, then again I usually go with straight ubuntu06:00
Noskcajkoveras0927, it's windows only, probably the best usb maker there is06:01
koveras0927Noskaj Actually I think I've used this before, I only found unetbootin when my cd drive broke back in 0806:01
=== nuxninja is now known as jamaican-brotha
tim_noted. ive got to use a usb key to install  what ever i end up using06:02
koveras0927tim_ try using both, whatever you can get working first, but it's not hard.06:03
koveras0927tim_ have you ever set up a dual boot before?06:03
tim_im kind of a noob when it comes to linux install06:03
tim_and no06:03
jamaican-brothaunetbootin is a piece of cake...just experiment06:04
koveras0927so your chromebook is running windows 7 you said?06:04
tim_netbook* but yes06:04
jamaican-brothatim_ nothing to worry just take ur time06:04
koveras0927do you know how to shrink your windows partition to allow space to install linux?06:05
tim_no i dont.06:05
tim_okay i know nothing about linux install06:05
=== zhurai-tsuki is now known as zhurai
koveras0927right click computer, click manage, and go to disk management. Right click your main windows partition C: and click shrink06:05
koveras0927then you just put in the size in MB that you want your linux partition to be, I'd say 40 would be fine for just learning how to use it06:06
koveras092740GB, not MB06:06
tim_okay06:07
koveras0927then after you shrink your partition you'll have free space for linux, use unetbootin/LiLi to make a bootable usb drive and boot off of it, then it's pretty self explanatory from there06:07
tim_okay thanks06:08
tim_ill make sure i do a full backup first06:08
koveras0927Good idea :D06:08
koveras0927when you click install lubuntu or whatever ubuntu distro you're installing, click the option saying install alongside windows, it will keep both windows and linux and let you choose what to boot when you start up next time06:09
tim_okay thanks for all the help!06:09

antonio_I have so much work to do...and I don't need to be dealing with such minor b.s.08:19
Em_so the command "sudo apt-get update" updates my kernel and gives it the information or the list of packages wher eto get softwares from, right?08:19

BillyZane2hi09:25
bekksKnight2000: Using gparted, you can move your partitions without formatting them, but you should create a backup before.09:25
auronandaceKnight2000: then you need to get rid of one of your primary partitions to put an extended partition in its place then you can put logical partitions inside that09:26

kostkonantonio_, apt-cache policy broadcom-sta-source09:27
auronandacebekks: an extended partition is a container for logical partitions, so you can't convert a primary into an extended without getting rid of all its contents09:27
auronandaceKnight2000: then you either need to get another harddrive or use a vm09:28
antonio_koston: here you go http://pastebin.com/9A0d35dZ09:28

g0tchajrib, alright, one sec12:12

bekksmarkaum: Thats not officially supported by Oracle.12:41
patrunjelhi, could anyone please recommend an mp3 player/addon that remembers where I've stopped listening to something and starts from there the next time I play the file?12:41
bekksmarkaum: Because it isnt supported :)12:42
markaumbekks: I know, we use RHEL for our servers, but we are trying to change the OS that the dev team is using12:42
bekksmarkaum: Which will lead to an totally unsupported environment which leads to the loss of support by ORacle. Best advice: Dont do it.12:43
markaumbekks: We develop software using the Oracle ADF Framework, and we have to use JDeveloper. Using JDev on windows is frustrating, crashes a lot12:45
markaumbekks: On Linux, we have a huge gain of productivity. The only setback is having to use virtual machines to run Oracle Linux12:45
baddayioria, megha, AtumT, theadmin: The thing is that if I restart it tells me "failed to load session ubuntu", therefore I would like to check which desktop environments are installed12:47
markaumAnyone knows how to install Oracle XE on Ubuntu?12:50
markaumI've tried many tutorials, but still, the database refuses to start up12:51
AziroshinHello12:51
AziroshinI successfully burned the 12.04 image, and booted it. Unfortunately, "ubuntu" and a blank password are not working.12:52
AziroshinIt's telling me the login credentials are wrong.12:52
patrunjelhi, could anyone please recommend an mp3 player/addon that remembers where I've stopped listening to something and starts from there the next time I play the file?12:52
AziroshinI know smplayer does this, but it's primarily a video player.12:52
patrunjelthanks, I'll try it out and see how it goes12:53
AziroshinI know it does it for video files12:53
AziroshinI doubt it'll be any different for mp3s.12:53
patrunjelit might, since you expect mp3s to be songs and such, but I'll sort it out12:54
patrunjelthanks12:54

mrshr3dKyle - you might be able to, I'm no expert but there are good tuts on regret just do a google13:37
watchahm just got my apache server running, everything is fine from here, I can see my site just fine.. but not from my laptop on the same local network? just show 40413:37
mrshr3dWatcha, can you see it by IP address?13:38
watchanot from my other computer no,  and from the server itself it just redirects to localhost when using ip.13:38
watchabut when I restart apache, it say( servers fully qualified domain name .... 127.0.1.1 ... for servername=13:39
ikoniawatcha: so ?13:39
ikoniawatcha: that's only a warning because you've not set a valid fqdn13:40
nbtkylescottmcgill: <xml>\s*</xml> will match <xml></xml> or <xml> </xml> with any number of spaces13:40
nbtis that what you meant?13:40
watchaokay, so that's nothing to worry about?13:40
dandandanok so heres the deal, im wgetting a file to a ubuntu server and i get a http redirect like so pastbin.com/1YFJAfK9 . n13:40
ikoniawatcha: it means it's just bound to that ip address, as there is no fqdn13:41
dandandanfrom centos, and older versions of ubuntu it works fine13:41
dandandanand ive tried it from different providers/locations, same result13:41

dandandani cant really share it13:42
ikoniathen I can't really help13:42
dandandanit has sensitive information13:42
dandandani can show you what the server is returning if you like13:42

TomyLobook this is nuts: my laptop has ecrypted home folders. my public key is in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on that thing. if i log in while i'm logged in from somewhere else, everything is fine and the ssh server accepts my key14:11
DWSRAnyone here use GlusterFS?14:11
nuxninjahello14:11
TomyLobohowever, while i'm not logged in, it *refuses* my key14:11
DWSRI'm wondering if it's possible to initialize a storage brick with data already existing14:12
bekksTomyLobo: Because your key cant be accessed then.14:12
TomyLobobekks yes, i realize. it's still nuts14:12
ThinkT510wildNBK: depends what filesystem you put on it14:12
ThinkT510!fstab | wildNBK14:12
ubottuwildNBK: The /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions14:12
TomyLoboit allows you to lock yourself out of your server, for instance14:12
bekksTomyLobo: Thats one of the caveats of encryption - I dont use it :P14:12
bilelhi, I've just installed ubuntu aside windows with a usb live key, but why grub hasn't been installed so that I can choose which partition I want to use? Do I have to install it myself?14:13
soteshould I need to use a anti-virus on Ubuntu? I know what sites I use and with the bad site I use Firefox with adblock plus and NoScript.14:13
ThinkT510!av | sote14:14
ubottusote: Antivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus14:14
sotethe only nasty site is redtube14:14
TomyLoboso you dont need antivirus, eh?14:14
TomyLoboyesterday i was told in this channel, that there's nothing stopping a keylogger from logging my password entered into kdesudo14:15

ubottuTomyLobo: Antivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus14:15
sotethat's what I thought, I do access windows via the QNAP err well the storage folders like media14:15
ThinkT510TomyLobo: a keylogger isn't a virus14:15
TomyLobobut it's malware and an antivirus would detect it14:16
bekksTomyLobo: No. AntiVIRUS is designed against VIRUSES. :)14:16
soteclam-av works well but never needed to use it14:16
bekksTomyLobo: It will not detect rootkits, etc.14:16

TomyLobo"antivirus" is a shorthand14:17

ThinkT510TomyLobo: not all "antivirus" products protect against all malware threats14:18
BluesKajbekks, then the question is , is linux safer from rootkits and keyloggers than other OSs ?14:18
mangoixThinkT510: why shouldnt keylogger be virus? caouse it is a smaller version of virus, that calls for a trojan.14:18
bekksmangoix: Because a keyloagger does not spread itself.14:19
soteonly issue I was having earlier was in Gnome Classic... Couldn't change the clock from 24-hour to AM/PM even though in the advanced settings it said it changed but the clock still showed 24-hour format :( so I logged out of Gnome Classic and into Gnome14:19
TomyLobo8. Ownership of the means of production is in the hands of the workers14:19
TomyLobo:D14:19
mangoixbekks: no matter. btw, yes it can spread itself too.14:19
mangoixif it want to14:19
ThinkT510mangoix: a virus does damage to the system, a keyloger collects keystrokes, at best its spyware not a virus14:19
mangoixThinkT510: it diffrent from time to time, it could damage your system at same time too.14:20
soteI thought all computers kept a log of the keys that have been pressed/ typed14:21
TomyLobothat would be insane14:21

TomyLobo"virus", "keylogger" and "trojan" are distinct categories of malware, that may or may not come bundled in one package. malware from each of these categories is detected by one or another program commonly referred to as "antivirus". can we agree on that?14:25

mangoixDJones +14:37
TomyLoboDJones you mean it's impossible to log your own keys with user rights?14:37
DWSRsgo11: Because of mp3 headers and padding.14:37
zimboi could write a key logger in c in about an hour lol not that difficult14:37
DWSRsgo11: The picture was removed, but the space has been left so that the file does not need to be completely rewritten if you add a new picture of similar, or smaller size.14:37

vultek1l_: didn't realize that. I think I'll get the driver stable on what I have right now then update and fix it15:15
yeatsdisharmonic: yeah, you don't want to do that15:15
disharmonicyeats k11 there's a metapackage that gets the latest headers and source.15:16
DWSRdisharmonic: As long as you have a method of reading and writing to NTFS partitions (ntfs-3g, or built in ntfs support in the kernel), you can symlink to whatever.15:16
yeatsdisharmonic: yep15:16
k1l_vulte: yes, just keep in mind to reinstall the driver after a kernel upgrade (if dkms doesnt do the job)15:16

k1l_cableordsl: that is a topic for the offtopic channel. (like mentioned before)16:22
vultecableordsl: Ask the cable provider if they can set you up with a dynamic then16:22
cableordslvulte, do you think i will have a chance with no programming knowledge to change my ip then (with JD) in this case?16:22
disharmoniccableordsl, static IP usually means it doesnt change. at all16:22
wildNBKlol, that easy... thanks!16:23
ThinkT510disharmonic: feel free to mention it as long as you state it isn't supported on ubuntu (same with mate)16:23
soteunplug the modem cable for 5 mins will reset your IP?16:23
vultecableordsl: without knowing the specifics of the provider, your setup, etc, I cannot say for certain. If you ask the cable provider prior to setup, I'm sure they can answer your questions16:24

AntDamhey all, i'm new to ubuntu and xchat...trying to learn and coming over from windows17:08
lasersjrtappers: Use regular terminal. (or make a simple script). That way, you can launch a 2nd X11 with one command.17:08
psauxwi got a wierd question ... I'm using a laptop right now and i tried pretty much all of the distros so I was wondering how come my laptop fan works well only with ubuntu?17:08

kovuwhen i type into the command console lpinfo -v it detects unknown usb printer17:09
lasersjrtappers: When you start up computer, which monitors came on?17:10
kovuthis is what comes up ---> direct usb://Unknown/Printer17:10
k1l_psauxw: maybe because of the kernel settings and driver settings ubuntu uses.17:10
psauxwk1l_, yea that's what i think too ... but which settings ! :D17:10
jrtapperslasers, B and C have picture17:10
jrtapperslasers, A is on but black17:11
jrtapperslasers, I have an idea! How do I specify device with startx!17:11
damselfly9psauxw; you mean the fan never turns on at all with other distros?17:12
lasersjrtappers: Those are your new default monitors, I guess? I don't know if I can change default monitors in BIOS. I don't think so. My computer is really old. ;317:12

psauxwdamselfly9, nah i mean the fan turns SO MUCH on the other distros but with ubuntu it works without noise and without overheat17:13
jrtapperslasers, how do I select device when I run startx17:13
lasersjrtappers: When I start up, two monitors come on. I manually start 3rd monitor with hulu script. Now I think about it. I could start all three, but meh.17:13
kovuthis is what comes up ---> direct usb://Unknown/Printer17:13
kovuwhen i type into the command console lpinfo -v it detects unknown usb printer17:14
lasersjrtappers: man startx -- Good luck. :)17:14
jrtapperslasers, thanks, at the very least I have 3 new ideas! Sorry to have such a hard to describe problem17:15
damselfly9kovu; that forum thread mentioned that it started working after trying to print to it anyways. what happens then?17:15
lasersjrtappers: No problem. I should get fourth monitor. Just cause... :P17:15
AntDamanybody know where to get a list of videocards supported by ubuntu\linux?17:17
soteXChat-Gnome just crashed... sighs oh well...17:19
lasersjrtappers: There are some limitations.. For instance, you can't drag windows through all monitors. Only whatever X11 it's on.17:19
jrtappersHow do I set which pci device startx or gnome-session uses?17:19
jrtapperslasers, I have a idea, but I need to find someone who knows about startx17:20
lasersjrtappers: lspci ?17:20
jrtapperslasers, I know that the integrated is 00:02.017:20
jrtapperslasers, How do I start a new X session on a certain PCI address?17:21
damselfly9jrtrappers; at startup X detects what it can match to a driver. It goes by pci ids not slot numbers17:21
jrtappersdamselfly9, I have the pci id, I want to start a second X session17:22
damselfly9jrtrappers; the only way you could do that is within a virtual machine17:22
lasersjrtappers: No idea!17:23
jrtappersdamselfly9, no other way?17:23
damselfly9jrtrappers; the first copy of X will be taking control of your mouse and keyboard17:24
adamk jrtappers: Why not create an xorg.conf file that specifies the drivers for all your GPU devices in one spot?  Then running X will run it on both devices.17:24
jrtappersadamk, That would be ideal17:24
kovuwhen i try to print nothing happens17:25
jrtappersadamk, problem is that I'm using the AMD beta drivers, and that was hard for me to work out17:26
jrtappersadamk, Im not very good at complex config files17:26
damselfly9kovu; I wish I could be of moe help, but I don't have hardware like yours to experiment with17:26
adamkYou are going to have a very very difficult time getting Xorg to use the proprietary drivers on one GPU and open source drivers with any other GPU.17:26
adamkIt may not even be possible, honestly.17:26
jacohi17:27
jrtappersadamk, can you think of how to try?17:27
jacoi need help17:27
jacowith hdmi in ubuntu 1217:28
jacoanybody can help me?17:28
vultei'm on gnome3, I simply cannot find sleep/standby/suspend anywhere..is it hidden?17:28
jrtappersvulte, press the power button briefly17:28
jrtappersvulte, it will pop up17:28
adamkjrtappers: I wouldn't try.  If I wanted to use different drivers on different GPUs, I'd stick with all open source drivers.  That's your best chance of getting it to work.17:28
jasuntojust curious if any has ubuntu 12.10 64bit desktop running on a PC with two nvidia cards in SLI?17:29
vultejrtappers: Cancel, Restart, and Power Off are the options17:29
jacoanybody can help me with hdmi in ubuntu 12.0417:29
jrtappersadamk, the open source drivers can't run the games when I tried, AMD beta was my last hope, it kind of works17:30

kovudamit i missed the messege how do i scroll up to see it17:30
jrtappersadamk, Ok, workaround, can I keep TTY going whilst im on ctrl+alt+f7?17:31
jasunto_Yup17:31
jrtappersadamk, Have it as a permenant terminal window on that screen17:31
damselfly9jrtrappers; so this is all about running games? Why not have two xorg.conf files, one which specifies the opensource drivers and the other which specifies the proprietary drivers? you could switch between xorg.conf files based on whether you want games or general usage17:32
adamkdamselfly9: The problem with that is that the proprietary drivers use a different libglx...17:32
zykotick9adamk: regarding your GPU open driver comment.  i've read you "can't" simultaniously run nvidia/ati propritary drivers...17:32
jrtappersdamselfly9, Sounds like a good idea, but how?17:32
adamkdamselfly9: And a different kernel module.17:32
adamkdamselfly9: So it would require rebooting between switching drivers.17:33
adamkzykotick9: That is correct.17:33
jrtappersOK, so can I keep TTY going?17:33
henkkaHello, could someone help me a bit. i have external monitor connected to my laptop. but cant set its resolution. its same as laptops17:33
damselfly9rebooting between games vs general usage wouldn't be too terrible17:33
vultehenkka: are you mirroring the laptop's screen on the monitor or extending it?17:33
jrtappersadamk, damselfly9, zykotick9  Ok, workaround, can I keep TTY going whilst im on ctrl+alt+f7?17:34
henkkavulte, oh that helped.. thanks :D17:34
vultehenkka: np :)17:34
damselfly9jrtrappers; you can set ubuntu to boot to text instead of to X, then you can switch xorg.conf files without rebooting17:34
jrtappersOk, so how would I do all of this?17:35
henkkaor didnt.. now i have apps on my laptop and empty desktop on monitor :D17:35
damselfly9with a lot of effort. but to run games is worth it to the true gamer :)17:35
jacoI have Macbook Pro with always ubuntu, of course and both the sound and video go jumping when I connect hdmi to TV. Anybody knows what is happening?. Thank you in advance :-)17:35
henkkaand mouse only moves on laptop monitor17:36
damselfly9jrtrappers; first step, setup for boot to text17:36
jrtappersdamselfly9, how long to set it up, roughly?17:37
damselfly9less time than a night of halo, if everything goes well17:37
jrtappersOk17:37
jrtappersdamselfly9, Ok, should I backup my current config? (And how?)17:38
damselfly9jrtrappers; backing up is always good17:39
jrtappersdamselfly9, can we try using propietery and open source, just to see, with backup there is nothing lost if it goes wrong17:39
damselfly9jrtrappers; so for steps- (1) set for boot to text (2) make sure both drivers are installed (3) generate 2 xorg.conf files, one for each driver17:41

henkkahave to try that out when i have patience.. been pulling my hair off for about 2 days with that desktop comp17:48
jrtappersbekks, what about disks?  click the settings on the top right in it17:48

gogo4gherkin: sounds like fun17:55
gherkinjrib: it's an ubuntu related joke though17:55
jribRollinV2: jaco's suggestion won't work.  It's not the right key sequence.  ctrl-alt-backspace did used to restart the X server (but wouldn't take care to ask you nicely about saving your work) but that's been disabled by default for a while now.  It's not what you want17:55

konraddohi, someone asked me for help (how to list all files in current folder which name ends on 't' and order those files by date. i guess it'll be "ls *t -lrt", but unfortunatelly currently i don't have any linux installed to test it and i cannot find my pendrive with ubuntu. can somebody tell me if this is a proper command?17:58
jribkonraddo: it's not17:58
jribkonraddo: erm, maybe it is.  I thought -r was same as -R but I'm wrong17:59
jribkonraddo: in any case, you'll still be listing the contents of directories.  It depends on what you want to do exactly18:00
konraddoyou mean that it would list not only files in current folder, but also files that are in subfolders of current folder?18:00
jribkonraddo: sure.  If you have a folder named "foldert", you will get the contents of foldert as output18:01

ring0souperk, no you need to run the command afterwards or your adjustment will have no effect22:36
jwrigleyGnonthgol, Do you want it? Depends what version of Ubuntu you are running. A repository (repo for short) is the place from which ubuntu installs software. The updates repo contains recommended updates to software, precise-updates repo contains recommended updates for Ubuntu Precise Pangolin22:37
ring0damselfly9, how is he supposed to comment out splash in this line? GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"22:37
souperknice statement!22:38
souperkmaybe i can just put // in front of the line like i do in php files?22:38
damselfly9by copying the whole original line to a comment22:38
keelGtb01110100: It sounds like your machine doesn't want to boot the USB for one reason or the other. Does the USB boot on other machines, and are you using UEFI boot (Win8 certified machines)=22:38
ring0damselfly9, that would work22:38
tb01110100keelG: It's a W7.22:39
ring0souperk, uncommenting is done with a #22:39
keelGtb01110100: can you boot the USB on another machine?22:39
dcopehey all22:39
dcopeall of the sudden my 12.04 install is freaking out... it's like there is an input device clicking as fast as possible on my machine22:39
jwrigleyIn ubuntu jar-files can be executed if java is installed and the executable bit is set. Anyone know how that happens?22:39
dcopeany ideas?22:39
Gnonthgoljwrigley: I too have read the docs, but what exactly does recommended updates mean, is it major versions, minor versions or just patches, can it cause the system to become unstable?22:39
souperkI can put a line above that one with #GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"22:40
tb01110100keelG: BRB22:40
souperkso that I can still see how it was the original? is it ok?22:40
damselfly9yes22:40
JokesOnYou77HI all, I'm getting a duplicate sources message when I run apt-get update and I think it has something to do with an extra Partners repo entry added by the software center, has anyone seen this before?22:40
keelGjwrigley: java -jar /path/to/jar.file22:40
damselfly9dcope; what is it doing at a rapid rate?22:41
Gnonthgoljwrigley: the kernel have options to register executors in userspace, when the kernel tries to run something that is not a shell file or an elf file it runs java22:41
dcopedamselfly9: it is hard to describe22:42
dcopedamselfly9: i right click on the desktop, and new folder is atuomatically selected22:42
dcopeby the time the right click is over, the new folder is also clicked like 15 times22:42
dcopeso now i have a bunch of open folders22:42
tb01110100keelG: Now that you mention it, No. :)22:43
dcopei think the sixaxis driver is cuasing it22:43
damselfly9dcope; does it keep doing that? or does it only happen when you right click?22:43
keelGtb01110100: That might be the root cause then ;) Use unetbootin, if you already tried that or it still fails - try to repartition/format the USB drive22:44
dcopedamselfly9: it keeps doing it22:44
dcopefor instance, i just clicked my user name in the top right of unity and it auto selected "Swithc User"22:44
damselfly9dcope; can you try a different mouse?22:44
dcopedamselfly9: i have22:44
dcopedamselfly9: i tried usb mouse and now i am over VNC22:44
damselfly9dcope; that's messed up alright22:45
dcopeindeed22:45
dcopei removed the sixaxis driver but it's still happening22:45
JokesOnYou77Does anyone know why the software-center lists an extra Partners source that is "Added by Software-Center" and if it's safe to uncheck it?22:45
damselfly9what about a different usb port?22:45
dcopedamselfly9: i tried vnc too and it does it22:45
dcopewith the mouse unplugged22:45
Gnonthgoldcope: I hope you have checked the obvious and unplugged all the usb connections to see if there is another mouse hidden away22:45
dcopeyes22:46
damselfly9weird22:46
dcopeit only happens after login all22:46
dcopei use the mouse at the login screen just fine. i log into my account and bam, it happens22:46
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest20876
damselfly9dcope; do have have any remote desktop options enabled?22:47
RollinV2JokesOnYou77, thats for software like dropbox vlc etc if i recall correctly. its safe to leave it on.22:47
dcopeargh this is annoying22:47
dcopedamselfly9: none, im doing vnc over ssh22:47
jwrigleyGnonthgol, precise-updates are considered to be stable, but as with any change it may introduce instability. Depending on the instability a new version will appear in either precise-security or again in precise-updates22:47
samo_svojI have a quuestion regarding default UI - currently it is Unity but entering into mobile phone market Ubuntu plans to use Qt for UI. Does it mean Ubuntu have plans to switch to KDE as default UI in future?22:47
dcopeis there a way to unload x drivers?22:48
jwrigleyGnonthgol, does that mean there is a kernel flag to activate java?22:48
dcopeor just reload the stock ubu x mouse driver?22:48
dr_willisyou can use qt without kde22:48
dcopeover ssh22:48
JokesOnYou77RollinV2, I think it's causing a duplicate sources entry: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1574253/22:48
JokesOnYou77*Error22:48
damselfly9dcope; this only happened after you installed sixaxis?22:49
folorncould someone explain to me how to Add repositories from terminal please i forget " I've already imported the key so everything should be good just forgot the command all repos are debs too as well"?22:49
dcopedamselfly9: yes. "sixad" package. but i removed it and rebooted22:49
samo_svojdr_willis: of course you can, but it is more complex from developers perspective to mix GTK+ and Qt22:49
dr_willissamo_svoj: i belive some ubuntu apps are allready using qt. i foget what ones22:49
dcopedamselfly9: so it only happens when i click22:50
dcopei can mouse over a folder and it doesn't open22:50
dcopebut if i click it once to select it, like 10 new windows open22:50
samo_svojdr_willis: does it means ubuntu is leaving GTK+?
