MoPacSo lately I've noticed that my 100mb boot partition just isn't sufficient.  Even if I only have one full kernel on there at a time, the space isn't big enough to hold that kernel plus the updates so that I can update.  I end up having to delete stuff just to try to update and pray that there's no crash in the meantime.  The rest of my hd space is a LUKs LVM.  Question: am I screwed?00:07
coldpizza72i/tmp/guest/home : no such file or directory00:07
coldpizza72iMoPac: ^00:08
MoPaccoldpizza72i: are you running from inside the VM's guest account, from a live CD/USB, or something else?00:08
coldpizza72iVM's guest act00:09
MoPaccoldpizza72i: the guest account might not be able to see, and almost certainly wouldn't be able to delete, files on your normal user's home folder00:10
coldpizza72iMoPac: so then what do i do00:11
MoPacalthough maybe it's possible within the guest account to switch users?  I'm not sure -- guest isn't usually a sudoer and I'm really not very knowledgable about user management00:11
coldpizza72iMoPac: if su is what u meant i get setgid: operation not permitted00:12
=== XenGi is now known as XenGi_
MoPaccoldpizza72i: I think your best bet is to mount the filesystem from outside, or, when booting ubuntu, to boot to a command line00:12
coldpizza72iMoPac: how do u boot to cmd line00:12
MoPaccoldpizza72i: maybe there's a safe mode option during boot of the VM?  I'm not familiar with running ubuntu in a VM00:13
MoPacat login screen, there is also usually a key combination you can use00:13
MoPacone sec00:13
=== Onixs_ is now known as Onixs
MoPaccoldpizza72i: from login screen, it might be ctrl-alt-f1 or ctrl-alt-fX, where X is some low number00:16
MoPacnow, that might give you a root shell, and I don't know the deal off the top of my head about whether that root user can easily modify the files in /home/youruser or whether you have to switch or do something more fanc00:17
MoPaccoldpizza72i: also, I've seen it suggested that pressing Shift when the VM is booting might get you into recovery mode00:18
MoPacthen you can ask it for command prompt /shell or whatever it's called and try to get to your file that way.00:18

Shubuntuhey guys i'm trying to use curl to proxy download a link and pass it to mercurial to clone, how do i do that?00:23

sbaughHey, how can I get bluetooth to run on startup, i.e. have a bluetooth keyboard be usable on lightdm.03:30
rajbut I'm getting permission denied when trying to enter a directory03:30
ubottusudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo03:30
dr_williswhat are you trying to do exactly? use sudo -i for a root shell03:31

philwongactually I did not but I might have someone who would03:39
sbaughphilwong: No, if you are changing the caps lock key to trigger a different key with xmodmap, upgrading should not revert it. If you are doing something more advanced, it might.03:39

dr_willispineneedlespinea:  you said your HD was makin weird noises or not?04:15
pineneedlespineawhen windows tries to start up yes04:15
jribrico129: still sounds like a strange request. I'd encourage you to give more details about why this is needed.  In any case, your issue is as I stated originally, your files do not have group write permissions.  If you want the group to be able to modify/delete them, then you need to ensure the files have group write permissions (actually to delete them, you just need parent directories to have group write04:15
jribpermissions (and belong to the right group of course)).  You can do this by changing umask (NOT on a per-directory basis) or ACLs.  Again, I'd encourage you to explain why this is necessary at all.  Why don't the users just compile in their own homes?04:15
diegohow on earth i do that04:15
dr_willisif the HD dies.. then both os's will die most likely ;)04:15

jribrepus: default umask is 02204:18
repusjrib, yes04:19
jribrepus: so if you want files that are created to be group-writable, you need to change that04:19

shawnleptone: because i used to use my desktop keyboard on accident when i was using my laptop04:33
shawnnow i can do it on accident, on purpose04:34
jribrepus: ACLs allow you to set permissions for additional users and groups (so a file can have user1 permissions, user2 permissions, etc.).  That's not really relevant for your issue.  But ACLs can also recursively set default permissions on a directory.  So you can use that.  You need to add the "acl" option to the partition these files are on, then you can find details in man pages of setfacl and getfacl04:34
jrib(sorry I don't know of a good online link for these).  Personally, I think it would be better to not bother with this.  just setup a git repo and let people clone the project, work on it, compile, whatever, and then merge back changes04:34
diego_hi friends04:35
jribrepus: oh there's one way you could avoid this I guess.  Change umask and change the primary group for the relevant users.  But this applies system-wide and not just on a specific directory (like ACLs would)04:35
jribrepus: you would essentially be sharing *every* file this way though, not just the project04:36
zizooshawn, lol that's awesome. btw, I just tried that with a remote emacs client, and it also works. Heheh.04:37
diego_how are you?04:37
repusjrib, thank you for giving it thought. the project is setup as a git. i suppose the easiest way would be to have a username setup for the directory and allow everyone to login with the same username?04:37
diego_any can help?04:37
jribrepus: that's another option, yes.  Why don't you just let people clone the project if they want to make changes to it, compile, etc.?04:38

zizoodizzylizzy: Give me a moment, checking something. I think my problem is related to my Compiz window manager. Do you know if he uses Compiz? I understand the default is Metacity. I had to install Compiz.05:13

shawni am trying to install the latest version from a 3rd party repository05:18
shawnper the instructions on their website05:19
shawn:18] [shawn(+i)] [3:freenode/#ubuntu(+CLcfjnt)] [Act: 1]05:19

shawnshawn@Lubuntu:~$ sudo echo "deb http://debian.sur5r.net/i3/ $(lsb_release -c -s) universe" >> /etc/apt/sources.list05:19

sam113101you need to be root to edit sources.list05:20
sam113101shawn: ^05:20
shawnnot sudo?05:21
sam113101didn't see you did05:21
shawni thought ubuntu has root disabled05:21
sam113101do it manually then, I guess?05:21
Flannelshawn: sudo in that case works on the echo, not the >>, so to do that, you need echo [stuff] | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list, but it might be better to just stick it in a folder in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/, such as /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.sur5r.net05:22
Flanneler sorry, stick it in a file within the directory /etc/apt/sources.list.d/05:22
shawnFlannel: thanks for the suggestion.  what should i name the file?05:24
Flannelshawn: I suggested debian.sur5r.net, but you can call it whatever you'd like.05:24
zizoodizzylizzy: Ok, looked into it further, and folks on the forums are saying that keybindings with super/win don't stick. Some say to edit it with dconf, but results are mixed. Mine is working now, for what it's worth, but my problem appeared to be with Compiz.05:25
dizzylizzy"keybindings with super/win don't stick"05:25
dizzylizzyif that's not a bug then I don't know what is05:25
nexus`i just tried to install kubuntu05:26
nexus`but apparently it doesnt support bluetooth by default05:26
nexus`i dont have a non bluetooth keyboard is there anyway i can install this?05:26
DaemonicApathynexus`: You might try asking in #kubuntu.05:26
nexus`i did no answer there05:26
nexus`but since its so similar to ubuntu05:27
nexus`figured u guys might know05:27
nexus`i got a usb mouse05:27
FloodBot1nexus`: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.05:27
zizoodizzylizzy: Of course. Here, found the bug page. Go vote it up, and have your friend do that too. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-control-center/+bug/99588505:27
ubottuLaunchpad bug 950160 in OEM Priority Project precise "duplicate for #995885 Unity blocks other programs from binding globally to Super+* (* = any key)" [Critical,In progress]05:27
nexus`i couldnt get around the initial install stuff though where it tries to make u type in a computer name05:27
zizooSeems to have a lot of attention already, but it never hurts to pitch in.05:28
shawnFlannel: N: Ignoring file 'debian.sur5r.net' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension05:29
zizooAlso, dizzylizzy, I am a liar. GNOME Classic, which I use, defaults to some other window manager, but the standard Unity Desktop uses Compiz. So you might try finagling with its keybindings as well.05:29
DaemonicApathynexus`: According to http://idebian.wordpress.com/2008/07/06/manage-hid-bluetooth-devices-in-linux/ you can use "sudo apt-get install bluetooth bluez-utils bluez-gnome" to install bluetooth stuff.05:30
Flannelshawn: Alright, I guess apt wants you to name it *.list, so go ahead and append a .list to the end of it.05:30

Jordan_Usubcool: I'd rather not read that entire thread. Is there a command that you're trying to run?05:40
Jordan_Uresearcher123: How suddenly? Were you logged in and doing things when it went from normal to slow?05:41

Chef_CatzI need help installing it05:42
Jordan_UChef_Catz: No, and this is #ubuntu. For support for other distributions you'll need to ask in their support channel / forums.05:43
subcoolJordan_U, i hear that complaint- HAHA- yea.. its in a script.. The script calls for either openbox or lightdm, but nothing happens- when i exit the program and view the cmd prmopt it says permission deneied- even as root.05:43
researcher123Jordan_U: each application n browser open late05:43
Jordan_Usubcool: The normal way to start lightdm is by running "sudo service lightdm start".05:43
subcooljordan,  so maybe i just needed to reboot?05:44
Chef_Catztheres nobody in that channel but I found stuff about it on ubuntu forums so I thought I'd come here05:44

rkhshm1i checked for the mentioned pkgs but all of them are already installed on my machine.06:06
Jordan_Uresearcher123: I don't see anything enlightening there. How about /var/log/syslog ?06:07

sbaughHas anyone successfully placed an xsession in /usr/share/xsesssions/?06:16
rkhshm1hmm.. But when i looked into my colleagues windows machine (win 7) and tried to print a file i was not able to find the designated printer being shown on that machine06:16
Jordan_Urkhshm1: Is that in an office environment?06:16
rkhshm1Jordan_U: yes06:16
Jordan_Urkhshm1: Is there a workgroup/domain for the company?06:17
rkhshm1Jordan_U: well actually we are in a shared office setup where the infrastructure is given by the complex owner.. SO i'm not sure about anything.. ANd our IT guys are not here today06:18
Jordan_Urkhshm1: You likely need to be sharing the printer to that same domain/workgroup (I don't know how to do this), and it may require an administrator account on the domain controller to do so.06:18
lbj90sbaugh i may be wrong but doesn't Xresources belong as ~/.Xresources?06:19

Jordan_Urkhshm1: If your collegue can log into his account from any machine, then that means that he's logged into a domain. I don't know a whole lot about Windows domains and policy but I know enough to say that it can make this type of thing more complicated (especially if the computer you're trying to share the printer from is not logged into the same domain, which while possible, is probably not the case with your Ubuntu machine :)06:22

sgo11hi, how can I set the default plymouth theme to text? So far, I can achieve this by manually creating a default.plymouth link to text.plymouth. not sure if this is the correct way since normal process is to use update-alternatives command. thanks.06:36
Seveassgo11: the alternatives setup seems to solve the purpose of selecting different graphical and text themes, not to set the default to text06:39
sgo11Seveas, yeah, that's right. that's why I am asking what the proper way to set the default to text is. :) so far, I just manually "rm default.plymouth" and then "ln -s text.plymouth default.plymouth" something like this. it works. not sure if it's the correct way or not. :)06:41

suigenerisactually I'd been waiting for you07:24
Seveassuigeneris: looks like you're trying to boot either an ancient kernel or an x86_64 kernel. Why?07:24
NovusSo I got a trick I wanna try07:24
Seveasthe_dark_knight: most likely that mysqld isn't running.07:24
NovusI wanna see if it is possible07:24
Seveasthe_dark_knight: another explanation could be that you changed the socket path07:25
suigenerisSeveas: long time ago, I'd installed xen and that brought its own kernel. I now want to get rid of it07:25
Novusmy new rig has a slot for an entire hard drive to be pluged in as if it was a flash drive07:25
Novusyou just drop it in07:25
Novusonly trick is you have to have it pluged in before you turn on the system so the bio recognizes it07:26
Seveassuigeneris: oh, I have no experience with exorcizing xen I'm afraid.07:26
suigenerisSeveas: so, I thought just switching kernels and uninstalling would be sufficient, but no07:26
Seveassuigeneris: try installing linux-generic (or linux-server on a server) first, that should bring in the most recent kernel for your release07:26
Novuswhat I'd like to do is whenever the hard drive is in place on boot up it just loads that and not the internal hd's07:26

rico129http://i.imgur.com/v5an0b1.jpg here's the imgur link to get an idea. everytime i try to install ati hd 5770 drivers following forum post instructions it never installs and just says error.07:39
rico129i have dual monitors.07:39
blue112rico129, looks like missinstalled drivers.07:39
rico129I followed instructions on a forum to remove unity and install gnome 3 experience. hope that didn't mess anything up either.07:40
blue112rico129, I don't think so. I run on gnome 3 too.07:40
blue112Did you install AMD Catalyst ?07:40
rico129I tried but it fails at one part07:40
rico129i'll run it again and take screenshot.07:41

omenrealblue112: Are you good with amd related issues?07:41
rico129i downloaded the latest drivers from amd's website.07:41
suigenerisSeveas: for future reference, I have to mount /dev /proc and /sys every time, prior to chroot, right?07:42
Seveassuigeneris: can be done after chrooting. But yes, bindmounting those will make running things inside the chroot easier07:42
blue112omenreal, not much, I run on a nividia/07:43
suigenerisSeveas: got it. another lesson learned. thanks :)07:43
omenrealrico129: is it a fresh OS install? did you do the linux headers and such?07:43
blue112rico129, installation when without any problem ? Could you paste the content of /etc/X11/xorg.conf at pastebin ( http://pastebin.com/ ) ?07:43
rico129Alright so I choose "Generate Distr Spec Driver Pkg" read the agreement, click agree, under package generation I pick from either redhat,suse, or build package for detected OS: ubuntu/quantal, i pick ubuntu07:44
rico129It's  a fresh install.07:44
rico129no less than 2 hours working on it. all i did was download mumble, teamspeak, and wine.07:44
omenrealrico129: did you get the linux headers?07:44
rico129I don't know what that is..:-S07:44
blue112rico129, so it did work correctly. Did you run an ubuntu update or reboot your computer ?07:45
* suigeneris crosses everyone's fingers and goes to reboot07:45
suigenerisSeveas: installation completer. anything I have to do before reboot?07:46
rico129I tried installing the ati drivers, restarted and it didn't give me the desktop. just the background picture. I then CTRL+ALT+F3 to terminal and tried starting up gnome-shell and it said operation not allowed, did a reboot and got to desktop.07:46
Seveassuigeneris: nope.07:46
Aliengeloops sorry, mt07:47
rico129http://imgur.com/i94v2aQ this is the error and i'm going to check log.07:47
suigenerisSeveas: thanks07:47
omenrealrico129: before installing an amd driver you should have done sudo apt get linux-headers-generic if you havnt already07:47
rico129I didn't do that omenreal07:47
blue112rico129, I see. Maybe your kernel get updated in the mean time. You should maybe try to reinstall.07:47
blue112Oooor, look the log file, yeah07:47
blue112And copy it to us if you don't understand it :p07:47
Seveassuigeneris: (fyi, I'll be offline in a few minutes, back online half an hour after that)07:47
rico129i thought error logs go to /var?07:48
blue112rico129, usually, yes. This one doesn't.07:48
omenrealanyway reinstall finished so time for me to start asking amd related graphics questions too... sigh07:48
blue112People should really get NVidia cards when they know they are going to use linux07:49
blue112there is really less bugs with thoses.07:49
Seveasblue112: or intel. I've been using intel for years without problems.07:49
omenreali didnt have any plans on using linux i just got bored 3 days ago lol07:49
blue112omenreal, yeah, but if you want to play some games...07:50
ntzrmtthihu777rico129: pastebin would be better for such things.07:50
rico129Will start using it ntzrmtthihu77707:50
blue112rico129, you should try to use the binary installation. It may work better.07:50
sgo11I give up ATI card about 10 years ago when I switch to Linux. ATI is always broken in Linux.07:50
omenrealmhm thats why im here... to let the smart people tell me how dumb i am and hope i get it working lol07:50
ntzrmtthihu777sgo11: I got an ati card, works just fine :D07:51
rico129I actually tried the binary installation following a guide i saw in a forum. didn't go well.07:51
omenrealwhat kind ?07:51
ntzrmtthihu777lemme see07:51
blue112rico129, what didn't go well ?07:51
rico129installing from command line.07:51
rico129err.. terminal.07:51
omenrealmy issue is with ati radeon hd 645007:51
ntzrmtthihu777ATI RS880M [Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Series]07:51
SecuRex0Hey guys how about use ubuntu mainly for my own desktop?07:52
sgo11ntzrmtthihu777, ok... you are lucky then. hehe. about 10 years ago, ATI was very bad on Linux. :)07:52
rico129So you recommend doing the linux headers first?07:52
ntzrmtthihu777SecuRex0: easily done, I use it on both my machines. laptop and desktop07:52
blue112rico129, yeah.07:53
rico129"sudo apt-get install lin...headers"?07:53
blue112rico129, you don't have to be afraid of terminal since you're here and we're all terminal pro-users :D07:53
rico129well that's comforting :P07:54
omenrealOkay so from a fresh install... just updated how would i go about installing the ati radeon hd 6450 drivers? already tried most of the ways listed and i just get a black screen and have to uninstall to get my screen back any ideas?07:54
blue112rico129, sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic07:54
blue112omenreal, black screen is generally a problem which driver. You can look for it in dmesg or /var/log/Xorg.0.log07:54
blue112rico129, ok. Now you should try install the binary driver.07:55
rico129what exactly is this linux headers? is it generic drivers?07:55
rico129curious what the headers means in that.07:55
SecuRex0ntzrmtthihu777: I've used Windows from now, so wondering if linux-installed desktop is suitable for me.07:55
blue112rico129, it's files the drivers need to compile against your kernel.07:55
ntzrmtthihu777rico129: its what it says it is, headers.07:55
sgo11blue112, rico129, I guess it depends on which version of linux header does ati driver use. for ubuntu 12.10, nvidia driver, you have to install a old version of linux header before installing nvidia-current. that was a bug in ubuntu 12.10.07:55
blue112omenreal, looking at the error messages will help us to understand your problem, and debug it.07:55
blue112sgo11, really ? That's lame.07:55
ntzrmtthihu777SecuRex0: I have used windows all my life, excluding the last year, and I don't regret a single thing about it.07:55
rico129Not sure what headers meant ntzrmtthihu777, but I think i got it now.07:56
omenrealim on a fresh install now so i dont have any errors yet07:56
rico129to install binary i should just "yum install ati-binaries"?07:56
rico129not that easy huh lol07:57
ntzrmtthihu777SecuRex0: and the best thing about linux, for the most part, is you can burn a disc and test it on your system before installing.07:57
sgo11blue112, look at this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2070426   for ubuntu 12.10 fresh install, people have to install  linux-headers-3.5.0-17-generic before installing nvidia. I am not sure ATI though.07:57
blue112rico129, nop. You should download binary drivers from amd website.07:57
rico129alright. i'm on it07:57
zvm-vlamHi all07:57
zvm-vlamCan anyone help with getting a instance running on kvm ontop of Ubuntu to be able to see my tape drives (instance is a Linux Net Backup server)07:58
rico129ati website leads me to a .zip of catalyst. and i think it's a .run inside? Proceed?07:58
SecuRex0ntzrmtthihu777: how about active-x? many things from microsoft are not compatiable with linux.07:58
blue112zvm-vlam, I think it's a little too technical for this channel. You may want to go to a more specific channel.07:59
ntzrmtthihu777SecuRex0: depends on those many things you speak of. I currently have 4 microsoft-based softwares installed\07:59
ntzrmtthihu777SecuRex0: you can pm and I can talk a bit more about it, as this is not really tech support per se08:00
SecuRex0ntzrmtthihu777: what's pm? this is ma first time to come to irc chann here.08:00
SecuRex0it means private message?08:00
blue112SecuRex0, yeah. You can use /query USER to query a user.08:01
ntzrmtthihu777or just /q USER08:01
rico129i just got a "appor - k" ubuntu  is ready notification" alert? should I reinstalled?08:02
blue112rico129, sounds like apport. It runs when a program crashes.08:02
blue112rico129, did you launch that binary in a terminal ?08:02
rico129I'm trying to find the binary. so far i found the .zip with a .run inside.08:02
blue112rico129, the .run is the binary?.08:02
blue112You just have to run it inside a terminal.08:03
rico129alright, didn't know that. Good news. I have the binary.08:03
blue112Do you know how to do that ?08:03
rico129"chmod +x | ./<name"08:03
blue112&& instead of |08:03
historico129: you can find out with file somefile.foo08:04

FloodBot1blue112: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.08:04
blue112But since it's a driver, you should add sudo before running it.08:04

rico129I don't think histo was leading to that blue112.08:08
histoblue112: I just popped in.08:08

tasslehoffmy compiles stops with "cc1plus: out of memory". I have 8GB ram, and it is nowhere near that when it crashes. someone told me to check CONFIG_VMSPLIT. now I need to figure out why :)08:10
blue112histo, hardware drivers ? What do you mean ?08:10
histoblue112: What version of ubuntu are you on?08:10
blue112histo, 12.04. I have no driver problem btw :308:11
rico129where is the hardware drivers manager in ubuntu?08:12
histoblue112: in 12.04 if you navigate to system settings or gnome-control-center there is a hardware drivers GUI that assists users in installing the proper driver if it's not provided by default.08:12
historico129: Which version?08:12
rico129lol this is embarrasing...08:12

historico129: Logging out will not work. You woul dhave to load the module and restart X to not reboot. So if you don't know how to do all that. Just reboot08:21
SecuRex0suigeneris: hmm i think the better way is that reinstalling ubuntu which is the same version with yours to Virtual Machines, USB, or something having storage and extract your dependant libcs and copy it.08:22
rico129When you say X, does that mean X window?08:22
SecuRex0suigeneris: but wait. i'll search it.08:22
rico129i'm going to reboot, but just curious.08:22
suigenerisSecuRex0: does i686 not mean 32 bit?08:22
Novuswhat does on do with 6 hard drives?08:22
TakeItEZsuigeneris: it means 32bit08:22
SecuRex0suigeneris: it means 32bit. x86_64 means 64bit kernel.08:23
SecuRex0otherwise not for the linux kernel, but for the cpu, you type:08:23
SecuRex0cat /proc/cpuinfo or grep flags /proc/cpuinfo08:23

Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo08:59

ikoniavjacob: is that exactly what it says ?09:07
vjacobikonia, hold on there. i'm rebooting09:07
ikoniathat's not an ubuntu kernel09:07
rico129histo: I installed wine, then windows mozilla on it, downloaded steam, logged in, and downloaded dota 2, launched it and resolution dropped- one monitor cut out, and could only see my desktop at low res, but hear ingame music. had to reboot.09:07
xkcdnow it seems to be working09:08
SolarisBoyxkcd: you should find out about your setup09:08
xkcdI dont know how after I pinged I guess09:08
SolarisBoyxkcd: it may work because you just put an internet dns server into resolv.conf - pinging it won't enable it09:09
SolarisBoyif you removed trace thats what did it -09:09
SolarisBoynot everyone lets you recursively query their dns -09:09
vjacobikonia: that may be. Although I don't remember compiling and installing another.09:09
vjacobikonia, boot problem09:09
SolarisBoyxkcd: you should really figure out what broke it initially though - because without a small adjustment - your system won't persist that little dns change you made on a reboot - =)09:10
vjacobikonia: This is the line in grub: "Ubuntu, with Linux 3.2.37"09:10
vjacobno other kernel alternative09:10
historico129: They make steam for linux09:10
ikoniavjacob is this a vps ?09:10
vjacobdon't know what a vps is09:11
ikoniavjacob: is this your physical machine ?09:11
rico129histo: I don't think dota 2 is available for steam linux. I'll check right now though. would be nice09:11
vjacobI just did apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade09:11
ikoniavjacob: is it in a data center ?09:11
vjacobikonia: no09:11
vjacobthis is a physical machine09:11
historico129: if not you'll have to check wine's appdb to see if dota or whatever game is working09:11
histo!appdb | rico12909:11

vjacobrescue mode doesn't let me access the encrypted disk09:12
rico129until then!09:12
Ben64rico129: wine works on many games09:12
ikoniavjacob: ok - so it sounds like you've made significant changes to that machine as that is not an ubuntu kernel09:12
xkcdSolarisBoy: Do you know method by which I can I find that out09:12
vjacobikonia, I don't remember doing that honestly, in fact I'm regularly updating only to ubuntu kernels09:12
ikoniavjacob: ok - well someone has done a significant change to that machine.09:12
vjacobikonia, that may be but I'd be surprised09:13
SolarisBoyxkcd: by default ubuntu runs network-manager - see if you have that running. use 'ps auxwwww|egrep network-manager'09:13
rico129found some info here on winehq09:13
vjacobikonia: I don't understand, why isn't there an older kernel alternative in the boot menu?09:13
ikoniavjacob: probably because someones removed them when they put their own kernel in place.09:14
Ben64vjacob: pastebin "cat /etc/apt/sources.list* /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*"09:14
vjacobBen64: the machine is inaccessible09:14
SolarisBoyxkcd: in the output if present you will see a conf line like this '--conf-file=/var/run/nm-dns-dnsmasq.conf' type 'cat /var/run/nm-dns-dnsmasq.conf' and whatever is present in "server=" is the actual dns you use09:14
Ben64vjacob: i thought you were just on it?09:14
ikoniaBen64: he rebooted09:14
vjacobno I rebooted on the suggestion of ikonia09:14
ikoniaI did no suggest you reboot09:14
ikoniavjacob: I did not suggest you reboot at all09:15
Ben64and it died upon reboot?09:15
vjacob[10:06]  <ikonia> vjacob: you have updated your kernel, and not rebooted for it to become live, most probably09:15
SolarisBoydoesn't sound like he said reboot09:15
ikoniavjacob: yes, where did I say reboot, I offered a possible suggestion09:15
vjacobfair enough, I guess I read too much into yoursuggestion09:15
ikoniavjacob: you then provided details that this was not an ubuntu kernel09:15
Ben64not sure what to suggest then09:16
vjacob(according to you)09:16
ikoniaso rebooting at that stage....would not be wise.09:16
ikoniavjacob: can you boot from a livecd and get some package info for us09:16
Ben64there is disk encryption09:16
v2zzis there any tool in linux(ubuntu), that shows mount errors? don't offer /var/log09:16
SolarisBoyis the old kernel still available? - can you boot back into that?09:17
xkcdSolarisBoy: Its not returning anything09:17
ikoniaof course there is.....as average home users need disk encryption on their root file system...09:17
SolarisBoyxkcd: then your not running network manager09:17
vjacobis there any way to continue a boot that interrupts upon trying to load iptables?09:17
ikoniavjacob: try to boot into single user mode09:17
ikoniavjacob: it won't bring up networking, so doesn't bring up iptables09:17
SolarisBoyxkcd: in which case - however your configuring your network - your dns is broken - or even your not properly configuring it -09:17
ikoniavjacob: append "single" to your boot line09:17

rico129any recommendations for a dock?09:20
SolarisBoyxkcd: oh and your saying that file is empty?09:20
SolarisBoyxkcd: do you have your interface configured for dhcp or static conf?09:21
servvswill the restore disk image in the "disks" program work with ntsf via usb?09:21
xkcdSolarisBoy:  which interface?? I didn't get you09:24
vjacobI added the 'single in the linux starting with 'linux...' using the emacs-editing of grub (1.99) and then hit Ctrl-x, as the bottom lines mention09:25
vjacobdo I have to type something else before Ctrl-x? Doing the above didn't seem to make any difference after rebooting09:25
SolarisBoyxkcd: it looks like you may need to open the network-manager applet in the top menu and take a look at the setting for your default interface - usually eth009:26
vjacobi.e. my line was "linux /vmlinuz-3.2.37 single root=/dev/mapper/machine-root ro"09:26
SolarisBoyxkcd: check to see if it's a static setting (you set the IP address and other fields manually) or if it's DHCP (it's auto configured when you get a network signal)09:26
vjacobtrying now instead with 'single' on a separate line + ctrl-x09:27
vjacobnot recognized09:27
SolarisBoyvjacob: single belongs after the ro09:27
ikoniavjacob: single should be the last option09:27
vjacobah, thx09:28
jiltdilvjacob, use init=/bin/bash instead of single perhabs will do the trick after getting the single user mode  do  mount -o remount, rw /  now done09:28

zetheroois there a way to check that a Raid1 setup is functioning correctly?09:29
ikoniazetheroo: what type of raid, hardware/software/fake09:30
jiltdilvjacob,  Both is correct , if first will not work then try second, it is more when you have password protect single usermode09:30

belgianguyhi, I'm having glitches in my Unity desktop/Compiz, it seems as if an underlying terminal cursor is shining through09:30

zetherooikonia: no ... why?09:34
ikoniazetheroo: that's fine, software raid mirroring wrecks them09:34
vjacobthanks btw ikonia for the observation that it's not a ubuntu kernel. is that based solely ont the kernel version? (12.04)09:34
SolarisBoyxkcd: ok09:34
zetherooikonia: ok .. good to know09:34
xkcdNo it is not uncommented09:35
vjacobjiltdil, is /bin/bash not the default even without that line, and why would adding actually get me further than 'single' ? Are there other reasons than password protected single user mode?09:36
vjacobI don't think I have that enabled09:36
SolarisBoyxkcd: thats fine - i would open up network-manager applet and add a dns server to my IPv4 settings - your dhcp server may not be giving you one09:37
vjacobjiltdil, I have no idea what I want to do here to be honest, but I guess I will start looking around at the kernels09:38
jiltdilvjacob,  /bin/bash ask kernel to directly  give him bash09:38
vjacobseems strange. my /boot is empty, although my  /vmlinuz points to a kernel inside /boot09:38
SolarisBoyxkcd: if your comfortable with you can add that -09:38
vjacobin other words, that overrides the (eventual) loading of bash, as it would normally have happened (after iptables, etc finished)09:39

ntzrmtthihu777perhaps I could replace the pw with a function...10:00
SolarisBoyassuming it's interpreted as shell or something sure10:00

ntzrmtthihu777eh, I could always delete said function and re-insert the pw. maybe I can come up with something so complicated no-one but a super hacker/mathmatician could figure it.10:01
SolarisBoyntzrmtthihu777: like i said if you make the password a string that you can decrypt with say openssl - it should be hard to get a little funky pipe one liner buried somewhere and hooked into your mailx command10:02

vjacobbooting using init=/bin/bash ... # update-grub fails after finding various images with the error "/var/log/lvm: mkdir failed: No such file or directory. File-based locking init failed. done" is that going to stop me from booting normally anyways?10:13

vjacobnone of the kernels that seemed to be added are listed10:14
vjacobbut I got that error at the end too10:14
SolarisBoyvjacob: can you pastie the full error you get on update-grub - vjacom rebooting generally isn't a good fix for anything -10:14
vjacobSolarisBoy, can't paste, it's on another machine as such (no network)10:15
vjacobbut that's more or less the whole line above10:15
SolarisBoyvjacob: silly question do you use lvm or use a seperate mount for /var ?10:15
vjacoblvm is used, since the main partition (besides /boot) is encrypted.10:16
ntzrmtthihu777rico129: http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/5788/screenshotfrom201303120.png10:16
vjacobso two partitions in all, but wouldn't update-grub only be modifying /boot ?10:17
ntzrmtthihu777rico129: its nothing fancy, just some tweaks on an existing re-master of ubuntu.10:17
SolarisBoyalrighty so it's encrypted lvm -  when you are in the root shell - do you see all your lvm mounts present?10:17

vjacobwhat's the proper way to unmount everything cleanly at this point?10:26
vjacobreboot/hutdown don't seem to be allowed10:26

zetheroooskar-: so why it's using gpt I have no clue11:14
SolarisBoyvjacob: easy to tell after you do it type 'mount' and observe the line correlating to your / mount point you will see if it's currently ro or rw11:14
oskar-zetheroo:  is the disk size above 2 tb?11:15
zetheroooskar-: the RAID1 on which Ubuntu is installed is comprised of 2 x 1TB HDD's11:15
vjacobok, it looks like it's rw, but I actually don't see mention of /.11:15

SolarisBoyfine with me =)11:20
vjacobso it looks like grub _is_ installed (version 2) for PC/BIOS11:21
SolarisBoypsakrii: why would you need to debian package a *web app*?11:21
oskar-zetheroo:  do you have any uefi stuff in the mainboard activated? i don't know much about uefi/gpt, except that it is somehow related11:21
vjacobat least grub-pc and grub-pc-bin. I assume that 'grub' and 'grub2' are not necessary.11:21
SolarisBoyvjacob: possible11:21
zetheroo oskar-: very possibly ... should I disable it if it's enabled11:22
SolarisBoygrub is deprecated - i thought grub2 was default11:22
PrincessLunaHow can I right click with a touchscreen?11:22
psakriiSolarisBoy: it would be easy for setting up the web app on local or staging servers11:22
zetheroo oskar-: actually I am certain there is something liek that enabled11:22
oskar-zetheroo:  you could try it, and then ubuntu might not get the idea to use gpt11:22
zetheroo oskar-: should I disable it and reinstall Ubuntu?11:22
SolarisBoypsakrii: so you want to package the application code?11:22
vjacobwell I don't remember diverging form the defaults, and I've only ever been suggested to install grub-pc/grub-pc-bin. no mention of grub2 missing before11:22

WhiteHippoHi all. I have an issue with ubuntu 12.10/cinnamon/banshee. my taskbar turns all pixelated where the icons are supposed to be after a few hours of having banshee running.11:24
WhiteHippoideas ?11:24
WhiteHippoand also my text is all grey. is that normal ?11:24
Ben64we can't help you with cinnamon :(11:24
psakriiSolarisBoy: that would be for version controlling i m talking about setting up the web app along with dependencies11:24
SolarisBoypsakrii: no - that would be for deploying to your web root -11:24
WhiteHippocan you point me to someplace with cinnamon help Ben64?11:24
oskar-zetheroo:  with uefi/gpt disabled and normal dos partitions a new installation should work out of the box11:24
Touhou11WhiteHippo: Try a less buggy DE, like XFCE11:24
WhiteHippoDE = ?11:25
SolarisBoypsakrii: use submodules - generally people package binary executables - not simply the web files that compile a web app - so im just saying using git and submodules you can pull the app easily (local/dev) and deploy it in the same hand11:25
Ben64WhiteHippo: i dunno, check the cinnamon website?11:25
WhiteHippoXFCE = ? (sorry. ubuntu noob)11:25
WhiteHippoah. ill do that.11:25
SolarisBoypsakrii: but if your intent on having a debian package it's really nto hard at all to unwrap some files to a location - would be a pretty shallow package though -11:25
psakriiSolarisBoy: hmmm ok cool any specific reason why only binary executables are packaged11:26
SolarisBoypsakrii: i didn't say *only* i said generally - because thats how packages are delivered - your talking a web app11:26
oskar-zetheroo:  and for array created from the bigger disks you could simply use no partitions, but instead create a LVM physical volume directly on top of it11:27
SolarisBoyit's code in files under a WEB_ROOT - people generally use git - or whatever to control what appears there - in the same hand a git clone to a WEB_ROOT of a working PHP app - is in turn - deploying it.11:27
Touhou11It matters more with web software to have the latest stable version, because of security issues. So it's not a good idea to use old versions in repositories11:27
TakeItEZpsakrii: there are also packages for stuff like wordpress, drupal etc11:27
SolarisBoywhich i was going to mention - if your intent on having something like this - take a look at how they do those ones which are generally a copy of files to a location -11:28
SolarisBoyBUT they generally also setup a web conf for apache and bounce the web server as well -11:28

dawkirsthi, what is the /opt directory for?11:30
SolarisBoypsakrii: you can do that debian package thing but if your developing trust me - git is easier - think code changes... do you want developers to have to reinstall myapp-deb-package on each code change or do a git pull?11:30
Seveasdawkirst: 3rp party software installed with another mechanism than .deb files11:30
psakriiSolarisBoy: Git pull will only update the code rite but will not update the dependencies11:31
dawkirstSeveas, ok...so this tutorial is misleading? http://www.technoreply.com/how-to-install-sublime-text-2-on-ubuntu-12-04-unity/11:31

MakiAtohi brothers11:32
Seveasyes. that symlink into /usr/bin is wrong, you could put it in /usr/local/bin (same for the desktop file, should go in /usr/local/share)11:32
SolarisBoypsakrii: EG if your dependancies is another set of code for instance maybe some python or something - maybe you want to make that a submodule - in where it's like a git repo within another git repo and with seperate versions - from there you can do things with hooks that git doesn't already do by default to manage deps11:32
Seveasdawkirst: /usr/local is for 'sysadmin installed local things'11:33
dawkirstSeveas, ok, thanks :)11:33
SolarisBoypsakrii: if you mean deps as in - it installs system based application components (like binary & library files) statefully on disk, no git does not do that11:33
dawkirstSeveas, the /opt reference is correct then, right?11:33
psakriiSolarisBoy: yes thats what i meant11:34
SolarisBoypsakrii: how many times does one need to install apache? and is it needed to install apache each time you deploy your application? maybe im getting a little too consulty =)...11:34

SolarisBoyi would opt for telling my developers to already have system utilities to test/run web apps on their systems - and then enforce the git repo on them11:37
Seveasdawkirst: yeah11:37
SolarisBoypsakrii: in your case if thats what your bent on - it sounds like you would want to make a custom debian package with dependancies of it's own11:38
Touhou11I would avoid git if you can, there are many decent SCMs out there11:38
Seveasgit is a decent scm, it's great even :)11:38
psakriiSolarisBoy: yes i want to try it out11:38

vjacobhisto, rtl8192cu12:22
vjacobgood to read about 12.10 though12:22

onemake me King as we move toward a one world order12:23

SolarisBoy_ultimate: check your dmesg output and see if you can find the associated device(s) names that are under /dev - when you get them use udevadm info -a -n /dev/<device_name> to get the udev attributes12:24
DJonesone: Stop the offtopic comments12:24
oneDJones: no u12:25
SolarisBoy_ultimate: another thing you can do is run udevadm monitor while plugging something in and out of the reader - it should print the kernel names and any custom attributes you can match on12:25

Poindexter_Akaariai, perhaps someone spilled liquid in the keyboard. That is a major problem these days.14:03
jribkiller: you need to install the openssh-server on the machine you want to ssh into.  Have you done that?  Whether you need to open ports, depends on whether you've closed them and your network setup14:04
Poindexter_Try another keyboard first.14:04

_ultimateClaude_ you can run "sudo nano /etc/rc.local"15:10
_ultimateor your can also use gedit if you want a more familiar text editor15:10
_ultimatedepends on what ubuntu install you have15:10
Claude_i added my command (mount -a ) to /etc/rc.local but also it is not working when booting15:11
k1lClaude_: why mount -a?15:11
k1lClaude_: that happens every boot automaticaly15:11
ejvmount -a $WHAT?15:12
ejv-a, mount all filesystems in fstab, ok so why not just add the entry in fstab, since it's automatically read anyways...15:12
_ultimatei have two omnikey card readers and i want to lock each one to the usb port it is attached, does anyone know how15:13
Claude_yes"sudo mount -a " and that what makes my NAS IP written in fstab to be mounted15:13
k1lor he wants to mount some network stuff that is not available at that stage15:13
_ultimatei have been looking at udev and found the udev id but i am unsure where to go from there15:13
holstein_ultimate: what do you mean by "lock"?15:14

Fuzzleso my last install of ubuntu i installd grpahics driver from amd site worked fine till kernal updated and broke it how come this happened?15:15

holstein_ultimate: i dont know if that is a port issue.. when you reboot with just one in at a time, does that work?15:15
_ultimatei want ubuntu to remember what is connected to each port after i reboot15:15
_ultimateyes it works fine holstein15:15
ejvClaude_: it sounds like you want to use smbfs or cifs-utils15:15
_ultimateit also works fine with debian15:15
Fuzzlesk1l, because when i play a game with steam it askeds t update open gl15:16

BLZbubbahi guys, when I adjust the resolution and rotation in the Settings, where does it store that configuration info?15:16
ejvClaude_: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently15:16
holsteinFuzzles: the kernel upgrade is what "broke" it.. you can either not upgrade the kernel, or just reinstall the drivers.. you choose to maintain your drivers manually when you install them manually15:16
BLZbubbafor some reason it is stuck on Clockwise even though I need CCW15:16
_ultimatei remember doing this a long time ago but i cannot remember how i did it15:16
Fuzzlesholstein, how do i do that when i i rebooted i just got a black screen so i couldnt reinstall it15:17
holsteinFuzzles: you can boot the older kernel and remove.. you can use tty to do it from the command line.. you can just boot the older kernel that is working and use that one15:17

fhedstromIs it possible to somehow configure an email account with exchange 2010?15:19
FashdeyEjv, I will try to check them out :)15:19

Claude_@ejv ok thanks for the link i will try that15:20
Fashdeyholstein Also if I want to make a full backup, to just paste into a fresh installed ubuntu?15:20

latteraejv: a bug in llvm's interaction with the rtld15:22

gabkdllyI am playing around with byobu, and I really like it. But when I open vim with multiple tabs, ctrl-pgdn does not work. Why?15:22

cronuslattera, you could check if there is a debug package glibc-dbg or something15:29

irvtgm4883: it's a remote site for my work, i have a VPN connection there15:32
irvI can ping their workstation, but can't SSH15:32
irvor vnc heh15:32
irvso if i can give them a terminal command to type in to enable that, i can fix the rest of their issues without making the drive15:32
tgm4883irv, so for SSH, they would need to install the ssh server "sudo apt-get install ssh" should do it15:32
irvi just forgot to turn on ssh when i wasup there15:32

ert3goholstein, can you explain me the steps in comments of Jac Obi here : http://karytech.blogspot.in/2011/02/opencv-22-on-ubuntu-1010.html18:08
fegoI am using a dell inspiron 15 R , this system is so silent while on windows 8 but the fans get busy when i run ubuntu for a while. This system has intel hd 4000 graphics18:10
holsteinert3go: i dont like to get that far out of the repo versions.. things tend to break, and i dont know what features you are trying to get, but i would ask yourself if its worth it.. this could be only the start of the hassle18:10
ert3goholstein, :(. I am following the steps mentioned here : http://www.samontab.com/web/2010/04/installing-opencv-2-1-in-ubuntu/18:11
holsteinfego: you can try something like jupiter http://www.webupd8.org/2010/07/jupiter-ubuntu-ppa-hardware-and-power.html though i would know how to remove and undo18:11

fbdystangHi, noob question. In ubuntu, I have PHP, MySQL and Apache installed. Where do I find the sendmail script file? Is it a part of Ubuntu, PHP, or Apache?20:41
tgm4883fbdystang, do you have a path to the file?20:42
bekksfbdystang: What do you mean by "sendmail script file"?20:42
holsteinkarsten: it wasnt int he default repos.. and if you have no idea where it came from, you cant ask for help. i would remove it, and install the suggested one.. or deal with the issue20:42
karstenholstein, going to try it now, sopcast player wasn't in any official repository anywhere20:43
fbdystangI am using a program that by default calls /usr/sbin/sendmail however, I go to that path and do not find a file. So I am wondering which piece I am missing from PHP, ubuntu, or apache to get it working20:44
achandrafbdystang, you need to install sendmail if you want that as your smtp relay . its not part of php,mysql or apache20:44
fbdystangachandra: sudo apt get install sendmail?20:45
bekksfbdystang: You are missing a MTA. Either sendmail, postfix, exim, qmail, ssmtp, or whatever.20:45
achandrafbdystang, ^^ exactly20:45
achandrafbdystang, yes that is correct if you want sendmail..20:46
fbdystangbekks, achandra, Got it, what does a lamp stack normally use20:46
achandrafbdystang, are u trying to install a specific set of these packages for a reason? what are u trying to achieve ?20:47
tgm4883hmm, fun fact. /usr/sbin/sendmail doesn't appear to be in the sendmail package20:48
M1chaHi, I thinking about buying a new laptop but it has 1080p at 15.6inch(my current is 1366x768 at 15.6inch) and I fear that the UI will be very smalli in Ubuntu. Does Ubuntu support full dpi-sclaing like android? Last time I tried this only fonts could be scaled.20:48
bekksfbdystang: The MTA thgat the admin chooses to install.20:48
gnuskoolfbdystang: sendmail on the isps i use20:48
fbdystangachandra, actually, I installed phpscheduleit on a server a long time ago, and I can't remember what I set up. Everything else works perfectly, but no mail.20:48
kalenjohnsonM1cha, actually I find the UI in ubuntu pretty comfortable. I have the same res and screen size as you20:49
kalenjohnsonbut then again, I've been using it for a few years20:49
fbdystangthe default in the config file is usr/bin/sendmail so I am wondering what program usually utilizes that file20:49
kalenjohnsonM1cha, I think you adjust pretty quickly though, and unless you have eye problems, you will appreciate all the screnen real estate20:49

M1chakalenjohnson: I really don't like that resolution. In my opinion 1080p on 20inch is already too small.20:50
kalenjohnsonM1cha, I'm not sure about DPI scaling though. You can adjust font sizes and icon sizes20:50
kalenjohnsonM1cha, are you using that resolution with ubuntu?20:50
M1chakalenjohnson: adjusting font/icon sizes is very horrible everything is small except fonts then that doesnt look very well20:51

achandrafbdystang, if thats the case install sendmail and give that a try20:51
fbdystangllutz, awesome, but none of those seem to be based on the phpscheduleit.20:52
nick|herecan anyone recommend me a good download manager ? (something along the lines of jDownloader, though i'm not a fan of Java apps much)20:52
tgm4883fbdystang, what does phpscheduleit have to do with sendmail?20:52
achandradepending on your religious belief some people find sendmail clunky and overcomplicated with its cf nomenclature20:52
holsteinkarsten: you can troubleshoot those erros with the package maintainer ..since you know who that is now20:52
M1chakalenjohnson: but if ubuntu is too small for me I cant buy an 1080p laptop. And I'll never use windows (8) :P20:52
fbdystangachandra, can sendmail run independandtly of ubuntu, apache, and PHP?20:52
karstenholstein, i can? sound good how would i do that?20:53
achandrafbdystang, thats sort of like asking can apache run independently of ubuntu, php and sendmail. ;)20:53
fbdystangtgm4883: /usr/sbin/sendmail is listed as the default sendmail script20:53
achandrafbdystang, its an app or service built for a purpose -- to act as an MTA.   So whether it runs on ubuntu or not is like asking does it run on sun solaris20:54
llutzfbdystang: and all those packages listed above provide that program/funcionality. so what is your problem?20:54
achandrafbdystang, just dont expect that people will help u here if decide to run it on a sun box ;)20:54
kalenjohnsonM1cha, well I'm not sure if you can do DPI scaling like in android or Windows. It's not in the standard settings, but you might want to check out extra programs like CCSM or one of the Unity editor programs20:54
holsteinkarsten: i would literally ask them.. email, or whatever is suggested when you go to support20:55
tgm4883fbdystang, so? I wouldn't expect sendmail to ack the existance of phpscheduleit20:55
kalenjohnsonM1cha, otherwise, your option is either to find a different laptop or set the resolution lower. Neither is ideal, but that's how it goes.20:55
fbdystangachandra, Ok, that is answers it. I am not using sun, nor would I want to.20:55
kalenjohnsonM1cha, in my opinion, it's better to have too many pixels than too little :)20:55
M1chaif I set the resolution lower. Couldn't the image get blurred due to the scaling?20:56
achandrafbdystang, u need to understand the relationship of the os ubuntu, against the services and apps that are supported or offered on it20:56
achandrafbdystang, then understand that there is potential interaction between those apps. and notice my language...potential20:56
karstenholstein, thanks for all i'm completely new to linux and i've had some big problems managing it so far :)20:57
achandrafbdystang, they can run independent of one another or together... to support some application20:57
fbdystangI am self taught over many years playing with linux, no formal training, so I have just put the pieces together, broken stuff, and fixed other stuff. So you are right20:57
M1chaI don't have good eyes and If an letter is smaller than 1/4 inch its hard to read it for me20:57
achandrafbdystang, might behoove you to go to ubuntu1 and download the server edition book...its useful and will teach a lot20:57
kalenjohnsonM1cha, it won't be as sharp as having it at full resolution, but give it a try and see if you notice20:58
achandrafbdystang, its not that expensive, and probably worth the buy20:58
kalenjohnsonM1cha, I mean, if you don't notice a slight blur, then you can use a lower resolution without issue20:58
fbdystangachandra, I thank you for the advice. Looking into it right now :)20:58
M1chakalenjohnson: I'll have to find an laptop in a store which I can try. most laptops sold in store here are crap and don't have such resolutions :P20:59
M1chabut thx for your help so far20:59
kalenjohnsonM1cha, but you said you had a 20" monitor, try it on there. It'll probably be less noticeable on a smaller laptop20:59

Bray90820i said i can do it windowed meaning not full screen22:36

jhutchins_wkBray90820: Again, what resolution are you trying to run full screen?  Your CPU may not be powerful enough.22:37
holsteinhisto: i'll PM you if you'd like.. what im talking about is, i was told the 64bit version doesnt provide its own flash.. it=chrome..22:37
histoholstein: it does22:38
holsteinhisto: when i go to http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ from the only 64bit install i have, the results do not support that22:38

ubottug3org3s: Ubuntu 11.10 and higher use GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, from 12.10 an up install the "ubuntu-gnome-desktop" package. From 11.04 to 12.04, 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 !classic22:58

Ben64khildin: yeah i googled the model number you gave and it is intel. so i'm not sure why it's not working23:33
Ben64khildin: perhaps the intel driver isn't loaded23:33
jamesdk1ng, i know.. just bitching before i go back up stairs...23:33
k1l_jamesd: then please consider not using this channel for ranting. this is a technical support channel23:34
khildinlspci | grep VGA gave me the exact model23:34
intraderI have an overheating laptop - when psensor temp2 exceeds 100C the laptop shutdows. This invariably happens with any full screen video (temp2 rapidly increases). I have tried jupiter. An alternate distro like Mint, Solaris, or Suse does not have the problem with same clip and browser (firefox). I am running linux 12.04.23:34
ponke_jamesd: sshd default on for a consumer distro  would be the definition of idiotic23:34
ubun22ponke_ k1l_ : are all of the different versions open source?23:34
k1ngjamesd, what?23:34
k1l_ubun22: yes23:34
Ben64khildin: pastebin "lsmod" maybe?23:34
k1l_k1ng: tabfail23:34
brotherBoxI am taking a screenshot of the hard drive scheme shown by gparted23:35
brotherBoxThe first partition is the boot thingy for Windows, sda2 is the Windows partition, sda3 is empty by choice23:37
jamesdperhaps i should file a bug report or would it be a request for enhancement, or perhaps a performance regression, ubuntu used to install sshd by default its helpful if the user has more than one system and would like to securely transfer files.23:37
brotherBoxsda4 is the extended partition with boot, root and home in it. Apparently, the swap partition is excluded from the "merge" that took place, but it is still encrypted.23:38
brotherBoxThe huge chunk in the middle however got messed up by the boot-repair program. What choices do I have?23:38
=== resba is now known as resba|Off
ponke_jamesd: pointless, really. never going to happen because of the resulting unsecure default setups that would flourish as a result of such a policy. just mod. your rollout accordingly.23:40
OerHeksbrotherBox, that looks really messed up, i am not sure testdisk can resolve this23:42
=== tensorpuddin is now known as tensorpudding
brotherBoxI have one last hope...could I somehow search for the "partition" headers in the chunk?23:43
=== tjbiddle_ is now known as tjbiddle

ic3hi, does anybody know how to fix lightwm bug -> can't login, just throwing back to the login screen. works for `guest' user. gdm also works23:48

ikoniayourimym1: you want help with what ?23:50
Ben64khildin: can you run "glxgears" ? it may require you to install a package23:50
siezerhello. I'm on a 64 bit box, and would like to install a 32 bit package with a lot of deps.. I've already enabled the repo, but am having trouble coming up with the correct apt incantation. any help?23:50
ikoniasiezer: strongly advise against that23:50
ikoniasiezer: use packages designed for your architecture, or designed for multilib23:50
OerHeksic3, known issue with .Xauthority  after update, see answer #2 >> https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lightdm/+bug/103683023:51
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1036830 in lightdm (Ubuntu) "Can't log in unless remove .Xauthority or use gdm" [Undecided,Confirmed]23:51
ikoniashadowflee: don't need to see that stuff, please don't post it again. This channel is for ubuntu support only23:51
yourimym1ikonia: delete kde component after unsuccessful installing  , to prevent it from updates or neither appear on update list like this http://uppix.net/4/9/7/f0f8f2c588143da95f718826c19c8.png23:51
khildinBen64: does it require to add a specific PPA23:51
ikoniayourimym1: open package manager, select components, click remove23:51
Ben64khildin: no23:51
holsteinyourimym1: choose them by name.. or just ignore them23:52
siezerikonia yep. I'm well aware. but I have a strange and specific use case and need to override23:52
khildinBen64: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5609316/23:52
khildinthat's the output23:52
ikoniasiezer: unless it's designed for multilib - it's not going to work23:52
Ben64khildin: "lshw -C VIDEO | grep -i driver" just paste the driver line, like this is mine ---- configuration: driver=nvidia latency=023:53
=== jeff_ is now known as Guest53312
khildinconfiguration: driver=i915 latency=023:54
khildinlooks ok to me23:54
BLZbubbawhere does Ubuntu keep the screen rotation setting?23:55
ic3OerHeks: it works. thanks23:56
Ben64khildin: yeah i'm confused. maybe someone else here has more ideas23:56
BLZbubbain nouveau it does some kind of xrandr request to apply the setting I choose in the display config23:56
OerHeksic3 have fun23:56
BLZbubbaif i change it, the setting only stays until i log off23:56
yourimym1ikonia: holstein : this is the whole ppa i have which one to remove  http://uppix.net/e/b/2/9922baf611c9a9da16ef52bd9eee6.png23:57
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.html23:57
khildinthe weird thing is... gdm is working fine... only unity is not23:57
holsteinyourimym1: purging ppa's is quite different that removeing a few pacakges23:57
khildinI get some kind of 'semi' desktop in Unity... screen without launcher/dash and without menu23:59
Ben64khildin: thats to be expected when 3d doesn't work23:59
khildinI can launch applications through terminal23:59
Ben64khildin: you could install a DE that doesn't require 3d as a temp fix23:59
yourimym1is that altrenative than deleting it from ppa under software resources menu ?23:59
BLZbubbanever mind, i'm a moron23:59
khildinI'd rather have unity... but now I am 'forced' to gnome23:59
