adam_8606Hi, Why do we have to replace ipv4. Cant we just create large "Private networks" instead of everyone having a unique ip address?00:55
Gerowencitrusfizz: You can install debs from anywhere as long as any dependencies are met.  Ubuntu is based on Debian, which is why it uses .deb packages, and 9 times out of 10 a .deb package made for Debian will install in Ubuntu.00:55
ks_adam_8606: exactly, what's the fuss about ip v600:55

Malinussso just wanna make it clear: if I installed ubunto on one a small netbook (acer aspire, that should be "certified for ubunto"), it should in theory be faster to both load, and to simple task as text editing and internet browsing.. right? It doesn't seem like anyone made a comparison (it orginally comes with win 7 Starter Edition), but it should be faster, right?01:30
BillyZane2you guys...... my big crisis... it was a USB drive plugged in. LOL01:30
adamkjustakill: The Xorg log file clearly says "Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module.  Please see the system's kernel log for additional error messages"01:30
adamkjustakill: So check the kernel log.  Clearly, though, you did not properly install the driver.01:31

_DomY-DomHi, just installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my MacBook Pro (13 inch, 8,1), have been looking on the net for the most efficient way to fix the laggy sluggish buggy touchpad, dragging the mouse is either to slow or too fast, too sensitive or not sensitive enough and this is for clicking, moving, draggig, taping, scrolling (multitouch) etc. Any ideas ?02:08
_DomY-DomAnyone have a nice config which they are willing to share ?02:09
brightknightulkesh: screen may be useful for ssh sessions but I want several terminals displaying on my desktop simultaneously instead of using keybindings to cycle them02:09
ulkeshbrightknight: you can still do that02:09
ulkeshbrightknight: well...maybe02:09
ulkeshbrightknight: i haven't tried that specifically, but i see what you mean...i'll give it a try shortly02:10

ubottuterminator (source: terminator): multiple GNOME terminals in one window. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.96-0ubuntu1 (quantal), package size 256 kB, installed size 1775 kB02:12
ulkeshbrightknight: yeah that's exactly it...start a screen session...then open as many terminal windows as you want...then in all of them do screen -x  then do ctrl+a c  to create a new terminal and ctrl+a n to cycle02:13
ulkeshbrightknight: hopefully you'll see what i mean by trying it out02:13
dr_willisscreen and tmux can show several terminals at rhe same time also. but for x.  terminator is handy02:14
ulkeshdr_willis: never used that, thanks for the suggestion!  i'd love to get my work machine set up better due to the varying environments i have to ssh into :)02:15

ulkeshbrightknight: maybe terminator is a better method as dr_willis suggested02:17
brightknightlooking at a desktop I want a window on the left and right both displaying different content, screen would cycle these in only one window02:17
ulkeshbrightknight: no, using screen -x you can cycle in both windows02:18
ulkeshbrightknight: screen -x            Attach to a not detached screen. (Multi display mode).02:18
brightknightbut that doesnt mitigate the problem of the stckness of the grouping in the launcher panel02:18
brightknightthis is a non-sequiter solution02:19
ulkeshbrightknight: agreed, but it at least allows you to keep your tasks going if you ever have to kill the terminal, that's all i was saying, sorry i wasn't more clear02:19
brightknightulkesh: oh in the case that it does get frozen, yeah I see where this may help then02:20
ulkeshbrightknight: yeah not fixing your specific situation, but a kind-of parachute :)02:20

C_ClearHi here to follow up on a video player question. At this point pretty sure its 12.04 OS and not the video card or drivers02:21
_DomY-Dom_Hi again, anyone keen on sharing Xorg config for macbook pro (13 inch, 8,1) touchpad with Ubuntu 12.10 ?02:21

spaceneedleGnuchess Bug:  The tops utility is reporting 100% cpu usage when i open up glchess.02:23
brightknightulkesh: ok two opened , now the suggestion is killing them by the right click quit as I would have two if they were stuck hidden? (thinking this may kill the screen session which is presumably a child process of the terminal I will have to quit)02:23
C_Clearvlc player and gnome both go blank and won't show video after my computer is running for a while. didn't have this problem with 10.10 or when I boot into XP  has anyone heard of this situation in 12.04 and any advice ??02:25
ulkeshbrightknight: no, the screen session will "detach" and then you pull up a new terminal and reattach with screen -D -R i believe02:25
ulkeshbrightknight: i'll test on mine now02:25
brightknightulkesh: I think it is going to kill the screen process also02:25
ulkeshbrightknight: you may be right, but i was pretty sure there's a way to have it detach in that situation02:25
justakillhmm okay I have a new driver and installed it but the're is a mismatch the kernel module as an older version02:26

ulkeshbrightknight: could always try other launchers (cairo, etc), but yeah if it's a netbook, gnome classic would probably run leaner, but i've never really tried it (i'm on my home desktop, i7 quad)02:43

UltraParadigmbigpun_: Make sure your screen resolution isn't too high, especially if you are using compiz.  Compositing will kill any computer's speed if your rezolution is too high03:34
bigpun_Also, my applications, such as firefox, crashes after a few min of use. I have no idea why03:34
bigpun_ah ok03:34
morph3kubuntu might be a little to much for your laptop03:34
morph3kas i just suggested to someone else bigpun_ try out www.xubuntu.com03:35
dr_willisrun the apps from a terminal.. look for errors when it crashes03:35
morph3kit uses Xfce instead of Unity03:35
fwaokdamorph3k, i guess i'll download the xubuntu iso and install fresh ;) thanks03:35

I have two monitors (23" and 18") and want the 23" to be my main, as it has the 1920x1080 resolution. Even when I am able to get the task bars to show up on it I can't get games/fullscreen stuff to launch on it, they always take my other monitor and then I have to reboot. I copied my xorg.conf to pastebin if someone could take a look at it.03:39

Gerowenbrightknight: Just go to the "Software Sources" application and there's a tab that says "Additional Drivers", if any are available straight from Ubuntu, or are in use, they'll be listed there.  For just looking at your hardware specs, I use a program called "sysinfo", it's a GUI tool that usually does a good job of actually listing what your hardware is, even if you're not using the correct drivers for it.04:07
bigpun_@xastey So far I love it. I have the 17 inch one with 1TB HDD but I did find windows 8 to be dissapointing. Its like they're trying to be like Apple with the apps and the layout. But other than that the laptop is great. There is also a reivew on youtube that covers it pretty well. The start up and shutdown speed is very fast aswell04:07

dydzEz2_so whats that mean mibr00106:12
histomibr001: I would try disabling the ppa's and updating06:12
Wugwhat specifically is the procedure for searching through the disk to find the beginning of the old partition06:12
histoWug: The data is there even if it was moved it's still in the old location and the new one.06:12
Wugyep that's what I'm hoping for06:13
histoWug: testdisk will search for the old partitioin table06:13
Wugtestdisk is pretty far in and has not found it06:13
histoWug: worst case like I say you will want to use the photorec application which comes with testdisk to carve your files to some external source.06:13
zvacetWug: use test disk it will take time but probably you will get your partition table back06:14
vinfuhey all is there a basic guide that teaches how to do things like switching desktops06:14
WugI suspect it may be confused by the fact that the partition table indicates that there is a partition there, taking up the whole space06:14
histoWug: This is why you always backup before moving partitions and data around like this.06:14

histo!ppa-purge | mibr00106:15
ubottumibr001: To 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.html06:15
Wugim doing what I think is a scan for any dropped partitions but im not sure if im using the scan which will work best on what I have06:15

zvacetWug: read http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Step_By_Step06:17
histoWug: if all else fails you can pay someone like me $250/hr to recover it. But your data probably isn't worth that.06:18
Wughisto: no, probably not06:19
histoWug: data recover is expensive. You may get lucky with testdisk if not I'm sure photorec will recover plenty of files.06:20
WugI can probably get it all back if I just use magic to copy out the 400GB or so of disk I know has the partition on it06:20
Wugddrescue or something would do that ok06:20
histoWug: the issue is the filesystem. You'd have to repair that.06:21

Tera_Giga_MegSalways backup sensitive data on multiple drives, stored in different locations and encrypted06:21
Wugthe filesystem of the copy is irreparably broken and I dont care about it, the original is probably intact somewhere06:21
histoWug: after you did what you are suggesting. Like imaging the section of the drive.06:21
histoWug: I dont' believe you could image a section of a drive and then mount it that way. But depending on the type of filesystem you may be able to recover parts of it. Like ext using inodes etc...06:22

histo!best | MatthewL06:46
ubottuMatthewL: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.06:46

histo!hostname | zzxx06:46
ubottuzzxx: Use hostname <somehostname> to set the hostname, or to do it permanently: edit /etc/hosts to include BOTH the old and new hostname and then change /etc/hostname to the new one. WARNING! Make sure that your current hostname and /etc/hosts match, otherwise sudo may not work properly.06:46

=== Plinker__ is now known as Plinker
wiggmpkzzxx: it's just another way to give your machine a FQDN, it will loopback regardless to your local machine, but instead of using localhost you could use whatever hostname you decide you want your machine to have.. 127.0.0.0/8 are all reserved for loopback06:55
MatthewLzzxx: I think 127.0.0.1 is for Localhost, and if other ips are needed, that's what happens?06:55
wiggmpkzzxx: in this case, im assuming the "name" of your computer is "ubuntu", or the Fully Qualified Domain Name of your machine is called "ubuntu" or localhost06:56

MatheusOlikonia: It doesn't work at all12:25
ikoniah8ingonwindows: it's called "windows" and the channel for windows support is ##windows12:25
ikoniaMatheusOl: so what's the error/problem ?12:25
gunnneed HELP : I have 4TB drive, can not make dual UBUNTU  12.04+W7 . I think I need UEFI +GPT. But confusion is that should I make partition table using liveCD before starting windows install in EFI ?12:26
MonkeyDustMatheusOl  start from the beginning, what have you tried before you came here - in one line12:26
ikoniagunn: if you are using GPT, I advise you to make the partition table before installing, that is personal opinion12:26
h8ingonwindowsyes but im looking to run some form of linx on it and after seeing it is a little more complex to do than before the UEFI issues i thought i would try asking for advice or links to a reliable how to to follow12:26
ikoniah8ingonwindows: so what's your actual question ?12:27
gunnikonia: thanks, let me give a try now !12:27
MatheusOlWell. I'm trying to run nginx there, and on localhost I can get the response, but from outside (browser, telnet, wget) I cannot, it gives me "Connection refused...". On AWS side, I already configured "Security Groups" to accept port 80. netstat tells me that nginx IS listening on "0.0.0.0:80" (which means all interfaces, not only localhost, right?)12:28
ikoniaMatheusOl: correct, so it's most likley firewall somewhere between you/host12:28
h8ingonwindowsmain question would be what is the most up to date method of getting linux onto windows 8 laptop and to save you a headache of explaining to me if there is a good guide you know of i can start from12:28
MatheusOlOne interesting thing is that "nmap" tells me that the port 80 is opened but with STATUS = closed12:28
h8ingonwindowsi have found a few methods through searching myself on google but thought before i go ahead would ask here12:29
MatheusOlikonia: Looks like it is, but I don't know how to correct it12:29
ikoniaMatheusOl: find the firewall12:29
ikoniaMatheusOl: it's not open then12:29
theadminh8ingonwindows: Just install Windows first, Ubuntu later. Ubuntu has an automatic partitioning mechanism, so just click "Install Ubuntu alongside Windows" and you're set.12:29
MatheusOlikonia: I tried enabling it all with "ufw", but didn't work12:29
ikoniah8ingonwindows: are you using secure boot ?12:29
ikoniaMatheusOl: it may not be a local firewall12:29
ikoniaMatheusOl: 1.) verify it's listening internally "telnet localhost 80"12:29
h8ingonwindowswindows is already on it (brand new acer v3 machine)12:29
ikoniaMatheusOl: 2.) start tracing the network12:30

MatheusOlikonia: 1) Checked, and it is Ok12:30
h8ingonwindowsand i am currently at the secure boot stage which is why im asking as i dont want to mess with things i dont fully understand without first learning about it12:30
ikoniah8ingonwindows: are you using secure boot ?12:30
MatheusOlikonia: 2) What is the better way to do this?12:30
ikoniaMatheusOl: it's your network - you need to work out how to best trace it12:31
h8ingonwindowsi have secure boot enabled and uefi enabled in bios at the moment yes, i checked to see12:31
MatheusOlikonia: Any clues about a good starting point?12:31
ikoniah8ingonwindows: ok, so there are various limitations and theories about circumventing secure boot - none I trust as mature yet, so the best option is to disable secureboot if possible12:31
h8ingonwindowsi was also given a link by someone that was regarding the Linux Foundation Secure Boot System Released12:31
ikoniaMatheusOl: checking your local and remote network12:31
ikoniaMatheusOl: then if they both checkout, it's something in between, in which case it's your ISP's responsibility12:32

zykotick9DeadWeasel: 'out of disk' is a grub error you're getting right?  is this an old system?  that usually meant grub couldn't boot the kernel, because it was "too far" into the disk - was a cause of some /boot partitions being created at beginning of disks.  but i wouldn't think it's common anymore?15:28

ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo15:40

morph3kactually you can change root password ubottu :P15:42
woowar59312: says on the forum you used "sudo chroot /mnt"  does that work to chroot on mounted directorys? or is that just the mnt directiory?15:43
llutzmorph3k: but that is neither needed nor supported here15:43
morph3kwhat is llutz15:44
KrisBzykotick9. If I run "sudo service lightdm stop", I only see command line. but you said that dm is the login selector. but why the desktop would turn off of the login selector stop. I already logged in,.15:44
dustin__just for curiosity, where can I find an official list of "what's supported here"?15:44
war59312woo when i try it on /mnt/sys i get chroot: failed to run command `/bin/bash': No such file or directory15:44

woobazhang: in a senairo where you have users from all over the world in a cafe using ubuntu.  if one of the users hits the power button then uses grub to enter recovery mode you are not prompted for a password.  The file system is read only but you are still exposed.  How then w/out a root password can I protect my pc?16:01
morph3kMonkeyDust: hes not on sudoers list16:01
morph3kthats what im tryin gto get him on16:01
jcabo_lersch: also, maybe the 'umask' is wrong somehow. It controls the permission bits of new files16:01
zykotick9lersch: you should be VERY careful with what morph3k is telling you... WARNING16:01
morph3kzykotick9: enabling sudo?16:02
jcabo_lersch, look also into 'man umask'.16:02
morph3kreally zykotick9?16:02
morph3kwhy the fuck would u not want sudo enabled16:02
bazhangmorph3k, no cursing here16:02
KrisBzykotick9, "unity is a "theme" for gnome basically - that happens to use compiz." if we had another "theme", so it's possible that it would run without compiz?16:02
bazhangKrisB, its a shell, not a theme16:02
morph3kcant cuss16:03
morph3kdidnt know this16:03
woono16:03
zykotick9KrisB: i but "theme" in quotes, because as bazhang just pointed out - it's really a "shell"16:03

ubottuanddon: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!16:27

ubottumorph3k: 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.

seferisMonkeyDust: So, download the Desktop Ubuntu CD, forget about Wubi.exe, insert CD, boot from there and install. this is preferred? Why (briefly) ?17:19
xasteyI'm trying to setup a dual boot but the live cd doesn't give me the option to install along side windows17:19
MonkeyDustseferis  because wubi installs *inside* windows, a normal install does it *alongside* windows, so independent from windows17:20

Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit.

nineteen67cometHello; I'm trying to get my head around autofs for nfs shares. I already mount them automaticaly with fstab on boot, but I don't use them but every few days. I followed several examples and am totally confused. If I use /media as the default nfs point for me servers /media/movies and /media/stuff directories does that mean my USB devices can't use /media?20:38
nineteen67cometbasically, does auto.master's syntax "/nfs   /etc/auto.nfs" direct it to create /nfs and mount there? then auto.nfs "/media/movies -fstype=nfs4 192.168.1.5:/media/movies" in my case .. would mount /nfs/media/movies?20:41

zykotick9!clone | wolftune you could try adapting this21:16
ubottuwolftune you could try adapting this: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » (this may cause problems with multiarch before 12.10) - See also !automate21:16
