technopeasantwhere would I get that? ANd should I type in your name or does it somhow recognize that automatically. IM new00:09

OerHeksRileyGuy, ATI 2xxx 3xxx 4xxx are not supported with the latest catalist, afaik00:14
nerdercause i read some paper on the web and is a little bit "strange"00:15
RileyGuyOerHeks is there a way I can fix it?00:15
veebullhey all00:15
RileyGuybecuase minecraft runs fine just not in fullscreen00:15
nerderfor example if i understanding well, u can read some file with SU without the super user power00:15
nerderis a little bit strange how i explain that00:16
nerderbut i think this is the thing00:16
Ben64nerder: start at the beginning, what do you wish to accomplish00:16
veebullI've got a T530 laptop that works fine with kernel 3.5.0-26, but fails to boot on 3.5.0-2700:16
technopeasantwilee-nilee: I understood that I am just wondering when to run the disk?00:16
veebullhow do I get useful debug info for the bug report when the system won't even boot completely?00:16
nerderi'm not a beginner, for u a beginner try to study some hard things about file perms?00:17
RileyGuyOerHeks?00:17
technopeasantThat is in the install process00:17
Ben64veebull: what happens when you try to boot00:17
DarthExpeditorveebull, use a live disc.00:17
Ben64nerder: you're not making much sense00:17
veebullBen64: after grub, I get a black screen when using the default ubuntu option00:18
nerderi just wanna study how linux use the perms for rwx00:18
nerderthat's it00:18
veebulldoesn't respond to anything but Ctrl+Alt+del to restart, or the hardware power switch00:18
Ben64nerder: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions00:19
DarthExpeditorI'm fixed. Thanks guys!00:19
Ben64veebull: can you get to a console? (CTRL+ALT+F1)00:19
RileyGuySonikkuAmerica: Hello?00:19
nerderBen64, and where is the special perms? is not what i'm looking for00:19
veebullBen64: nope, doens't make it that far00:20
SonikkuAmericaRileyGuy: Oops, sorry, doing 28374592734659 things at once.00:20
nerderthere's just the sticky bit00:20
Ben64nerder: then look at the man page for chmod00:20
RileyGuySonikkuAmerca: Its fine00:20
wilee-nileetechnopeasant, what disc?00:20

nerderBen64, if you dont know nothing abuot suid why you answer to me?00:21
veebullBen64: if select Advanced Options -> 3.5.0-27 Failsafe, I get some of the boot messages, but it dies part ways00:21
veebullSelecting 3.5.0-26 generic kernel boots just fine00:21
Ben64nerder: check your attitude at the door00:21
nerderi could wait for someone that can truly help me with my question00:21

ubottuLaunchpad bug 1167114 in linux (Ubuntu) "Ubuntu Kernel 3.5.0-27 does not boot" [High,Confirmed]00:22
wilee-nileetechnopeasant, That was advice that was wrong, did you notice the what;s raid answer.00:22
SonikkuAmericaveebull: If you know the bug number, use the !bug command.00:22
RileyGuySonikkuAmerica: I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and it screwed EVERYTHING up00:22
quemRileyGuy: that ppa? i discovered it the other day and it got my ATI card working properly again, after over 1 1/2  years without using the proprietary driver. :)00:22
technopeasantI just wonder how to run it in relation to an install00:22
RileyGuyquem: oh.. ok well I'll try, are u sure it wont mess anything up?00:23
Ben64veebull: strange, it does look like a bug, not much anyone here can do, just use the older kernel in the meantime?00:23
veebullShort of writing down by hand the last thing I see after booting the failsafe kernel and then typing that in, how else do I get useful info?00:23
nerdersome one can explain to me how suid works?00:23
veebullBen64: thats pretty much what I'm doing... but the problem seems to be that nobody experiencing the problem can provide any useful debug info for the developers00:24
veebullbecause the systems bomb out before getting that far.00:24
quemRileyGuy: well, i tried it first on sunday, unaware that he was in the process of updating the packages, and then it did screw things up, but i easily recovered from that by uninstalling x, removing the ppa and then installing x again.. then i tried again on tuesday, worked like a charm since then.00:24
veebullSonikkuAmerica: use that command.... where?00:24
wilee-nileetechnopeasant, I would use the ubuntu forums as well the help here for what you want may not happen in any timely manner. If you do describe the HD setup so it is easier for the helpers raid is a important inclusion00:24
technopeasantI hope someone here can answer why I can't install GRUB. thank you Wilee-nilee00:24
nerderwhat's your problem Ben64? i'm reading that, i wanna just share my opinion with someone else00:24

Ben64veebull: what version of ubuntu are you on00:26
veebullBen64: 12.1000:27
technopeasantSomehow I don't think Raid is relivent to the situation since the install recognizes it as a RAID setup. and partitions and formats?00:27

ThePiousPriesthello all, having a bit of trouble getting my Belkin DB n750 Wireless Adapater to work00:47
foomandr_willis: I am trying to make a VM for a class and I would like to have a super basic installation. Is there somethign else I should do to accomplish this? Clearly selecting Xubuntu Desktop is pulling in the kitchen sink.00:48
she_dyedfooman maybe you misunderstood the word mini in this case. It makes for a quick burn but it will pull the rest online00:49
foomandr_willis: i.e. if you've ever installed CentOS minimal where you don't even get 'man' by default, that's what I was expecting.00:49
foomanshe_dyed: well, the age says it only has the basic packages to install, then it actually prompts you to install packages where you can select something like "Manually Choose Packages" but when I do this and I don't choose to install anythign else (except xubuntu desktop) I get all kinds of stuff00:50
fooman*page00:50
dr_willisfooman:  install just a window manager. not a 'desktop enviroment' on top of a minimnal install00:50
RileyGuyquem IT MESSED UP EVERYTTYHING QUEM00:51
foomandr_willis: should I choose "xfce" and not xubuntu?00:51
dr_willisxfce is not 'just a window manager'00:51
dr_willisI dont use xfce. so no idea what it will install. if i want small i use Lubuntu or lxde00:51
dr_willisor just openbox00:51
RileyGuyquem: IT SCREWED WITH EVERYTHING00:52
dr_willisof course if i wanted a really minimal system with a desktop. id use tiny core linux. ;)00:52

RileyGuyhow the HELL DO I EFIING FIX IT00:54
she_dyedlol quit yelling RileyGuy he heard you00:54
dr_willisfooman:  unity is a desktop enviroment.  'openbox' is a widnow manager00:54
dr_willisfooman:  and yes. Unity wants 3d acell.00:54
quemRileyGuy: remove the ppa, uninstall, reinstall x00:54
dr_willisfooman:  smallest window manager i can think  of is 'jwm'00:55
quem"To remove the repository and its packages from the system do following command:00:55

quemRileyGuy: "If you are using Ubuntu 12.04.2 make sure you got linux-headers-generic-lts-quantal package installed."00:55
dr_willisfooman:  its all about layers and legos..00:56
RileyGuycommand not found00:56
dr_willisfooman:  layers of software make up the desktopp. the window manager is like just above the foundation (which is X)00:56
foomandr_willis: So X11 and openbox are equivalent?00:56
dr_willisfooman:  the other software line the file manager and  other tools are upper floors/rooms/furniture00:57
dr_willisfooman:  No.. X11 is the Foundation.00:57
quem!find ppa-purge00:57
ubottuFound: ppa-purge00:57
dr_willisfooman:  openbox would be the 'floor' ;)00:57
foomandr_willis: and openbox is on top of X1100:57
quemRileyGuy: sudo apt-get install ppa-purge00:57
foomandr_willis: and then something like xfce is on top of openbox00:57
dr_willisxfce is a COLLECTION of tools that make up the desktop . Xfce uses the xfwm window manager.00:57
dr_willisfile manager +window manager +extra tools = a desktop (basically)00:58

raidensnakeis it possible to build ubuntu from scratch using debootstrap?01:32
trismraidensnake: yep01:33
Morpheausraidensnake, I've built from ubuntu corefs for my ARM Hackberry board - but it's not the same as "from scratch" - you still install pre-compiled packages...01:33
Morpheausraidensnake, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Core01:34
raidensnakewell I want to use debootstrap since I have a script that compiles for the raspberry pi01:34
trismraidensnake: oh debootstrap doesn't compile anything if that's what you meant, sorry01:35
raidensnakebut the script does01:35
Morpheausraidensnake, it's possible - I built mine using corefs as debootstrap wasn't specific enough - I also installed qemu-static packages so I could chroot into the environment before putting it to a flash drive01:35
raidensnakewell the script I uses builds a complete bootable image01:36
enigmuriaticwhat do i do on a new vps if i get told "must be setuid root" every time i try to use sudo/01:36

Morpheausenigmuriatic, sounds like you're using a guest account01:37
enigmuriaticif i have the root password how do I change my account privs?01:37
raidensnakeall I'd need is a source ftp for debootstrap and the script does the rest01:38
Morpheausraidensnake, if you get stuck with your script, check out my post on how to put Ubuntu on the Hackberry A10 - same process would be used with a different kernel for the Rasberry Pi: https://www.miniand.com/forums/forums/development--3/topics/ubuntu-12-10-linux-sunxi-3-4-24-kernel-image-and-build-from-scratch01:38
Morpheausenigmuriatic, I don't believe you can - the error you described is something that I receive with a guest account and it's because of security - you need to boot using a livecd or some other device to make the changes if you have no other user account that can login to the system - you could also boot into the advanced options in grub and select the "Recovery Mode" option - it presents a screen that allows you to drop to root to mak01:40

gizmoIDWMaster, the basic answer is as long as you distribute it without modification, you are fine02:38
IDWMasterOK, so I just can't mix in any of my own packages or anything.02:39

Tex_Nicki'm about to build a new pc for the grandkids (12.10 with Gnome Classic de) ... for their account i want to remove some items from the "Applications Menu" ... in particular "System Tools" & "Ubuntu Software Center", maybe some other items as well ... how do i go about that ?03:40

lalondongI've try to instal Ubuntu 12.04 LTS . I'm currently running Windows.03:41
gottwisstTex_Nick: I would think there would be a package you could uninstall using the command sudo apt-get remove03:42
lalondongi'm using EasePartition on Windows. I've made 1 unallocated space . but haven't made 1 more for swap. My question is how to make another one without making it join with the first unallocated... because everytime i tried to make one, it's joining with the other unallocated...03:43
gottwisstTex_Nick check out this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/133456/can-i-uninstall-and-reinstall-ubuntu-software-center03:43

lalondongIs it okey for me to Install Ubuntu on this unallocated space (around 15.50 gb) without making swap first.....?03:44
gottwisstTex_Nick: What do you mean by system tools? Do you mean system settings?03:44
gottwisstlalondong: I belive it is okay03:45
gottwisstlalondong: I believe that the Ubuntu installation process automatically makes one03:46

zeak    To set up HawkNL library, copy the file libNL.so.1.6.4 to /usr/local/lib.03:51

gottwisstsorry, I don't know (because it's been a few months since I installed Ubuntu)04:00
gottwisstTry start the install process - there should be instructions of a sort within it04:01
[Saint]the readme is saying "change directory to /usr/local/lib" == "cd /usr/local/lib"; " Then, change directory to /usr/local/lib. Add a soft link: ln -s libNL.so.1.6.4 NL.so.1.6. You have to be root to do this." == "sudo ln -s libNL.so.1.6.4 NL.so.1.6"04:01

lalondongAnother question : I have to make it unallocated space right ?04:06
lalondongOr just ntfs but it's emtpy... i mean its free04:06
gottwisstlalondong: Unless you want to install over the top of something else04:06

lumpuntohey there. I just tried puppy linux and the distro have dozens of very useful 'wizards' for pretty much everything. why we don't have some of those? :D04:17

lumpuntogottwisst: is that spoused to be funny?04:18
ChogyDanmetzy: did you enable the 3d graphics?04:19
gottwisstNo - I just wasn't familiar with the terminology... Am looking it up now.04:19
bernsteinChogyDan, tried both US Server and Official Main server, no joy. This has been something that I noticed a while back but since it didn't affect my typical use I wasn't concerned but for the last 3 weeks I haven't been able to use torrents, some connection error. I've been looking at different distros to use on a flash drive on the old school computers I have access to on campus that just don't have the right software for me.04:19
zeakmy emulator run the game at 200% speed. Anyone have an idea for run it slowest?04:20
ChogyDanbernstein: maybe if you try updating from the terminal, you can get some useful error messages04:20
lumpuntoi'm just saying that ubuntu just assumes everything works, but when they doesn't work it's a nightmare and sometimes just a matter of configuring the thing correctly, what in this case have to be done manually (in command line in some cases), we could just have some 'wizards' like puppy linux to hold our hands through these painful stuff :D04:20
metzyChogyDan: I had it enabled to start with but turned it off04:20
bernsteinChogyDan, that was proposed in one of the help pages I browsed, didn't work either04:21
ChogyDanmetzy: it isn't well supported: http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch04.html#guestadd-3d04:21
ChogyDanbernstein: how didn't it work?  please provide details, ie, pastebin the output04:21
gottwisstlumpunto: To be honest, you'd have to ask someone who actually had a say in the matter04:22
lumpuntogottwisst: anyway, it's not important...04:23
bernsteinChogyDan, OK can you walk me through the process or do you just want my to copy/paste the error message? BTW I appreciate you wanting to help, it's nice, thanks04:23

Ari-YangI never really had this problem with using the built in kernel wifi module... I switched to the proprietary wifi driver...04:39
AppFirstSamuraineostream: I experienced the same with 12.04, however, I don't experience it with any version of Debian, which seems weird to me.04:40
gottwisstWas there any particular reason you switched? I mean, have you tried the kernel wifi module again to see if it works again?04:40
Ari-Yangthe reason why I switched is because the wifi on the computer stopped randomly working, so I gave the proprietary driver a go and so far I haven't encountered that problem...04:41
gottwisstDang. Well, since you had the problem with one driver and not the other, I'd assume it was a driver-specific issue... And I definitely can't help you fix a proprietary driver (I'm not even a programmer)04:43

DIFTOWGood morning :)05:52
DIFTOWI'm an Ubuntu user on my modern desktop, but I recently started messing with other distros, less popular ones for the sake of getting life out of old machines and turning them into useful servers05:53
DIFTOWSo I've been messing with TinyCore. It's pretty Tiny indeed.05:54
DIFTOWSo is its support :305:54
DEAHello I'm trying to figure out if my AMD Radeon HD 6520G is supported with Ubuntu05:54
DEAIf not, which distro would best suit my AMD based cpu/gfx05:55
=== Limratana is now known as Bumptious
DIFTOWI've managed to sort all of the TinyCore exclusive things outs myself, but I'm having an issue with I've had even with Ubuntu and never could resolve fully. Custom resolutions. This involves Xvesa by default in TinyCore, but you can install Xorg, and then its a Xorg issue. I've got no Widescreen resolutions, just 4:3.05:57
wilee-nileeDEA, I think your fine in ubuntu boot a live cd and see.05:58
DEAis there like an AMD catalyst driver for ubuntu?05:59
DEAi installed ubuntu with wubi before and it was a little choppy06:00
metzysetting up my first install of ubuntu running in virtualbox with unity, what does everyone suggest for email client thunderbird, evolution or alternatives?06:00
DEAI have a quad-core processor @ ~1.4ghz and 6GB ram / radeon hd06:00
DEAand i can't even rotate cube in compiz, it's very choppy06:00
DEAthat sounds like it's due to driver problems right?06:01
wilee-nileeDEA, Wubi is that way, it is just a file in windows.06:01
DIFTOW@metzy - Thunderbird is good.06:01
DIFTOWIts all I use, even on Windows.06:01
wilee-nileeDIFTOW, You can tab complete nicks.06:02

DEAkinda don't have a blank CD atm haha06:03
DIFTOWI've never used Wubi, what is the difference Dea?06:03
DEAnot sure, was hoping you'd enlighten me06:03
DIFTOWI know in the past, ATI had the better support with Linux than Nvidia.06:04
Ben64wubi shouldn't be used as an install for a long time, its more for testing06:04
Ben64DIFTOW: thats all kinds of untrue06:04
wilee-nileeDEA, Not sure really, if you mean your experience in a wubi, I just looked up your info on th web and saw people running it, graphics are not an area I have not had to mess with.06:04

DEArunning ubuntu with my specs?06:05
wilee-nileeDEA, No I have an older toshiba that works out out of the box, all my laptops have.06:05

wilee-nileeyou can load a usb rather then a dvd now I believe, as the ISO is to big barely for a cd.06:06
DEA64-bit or 3206:06
DEAwhich do you reccomend06:06
DEA6Gb cam quadcore 1.406:06
DIFTOWHow much ram do you have?06:06
DEAram*06:06
Ben64DEA: if you have a 64bit cpu, go with 64bit06:06
wilee-nileeDEA, I run 64 bit.06:06
DEAi know but you'd be surprised06:07
DEAhow many people still run 32 with 64 cpu06:07
DIFTOW64 bit increases Ram usage, so only do it if you have over 4 GB of ram06:07
Ben64DEA: oh i know06:07
wilee-nileethe pae kernels will run higher then 4 gigs in a 32 bit.06:07
Ben64theres really no good reason not to do 64bit if you can06:07
DIFTOWwell06:07
DIFTOWwhen you only have 1 GB of DDR DIMM on your moms computer06:08
DIFTOWthats a reason to stick with 32 bit lol06:08
DEAi see haha06:08
Ben64nah, ram doesn't matter for it06:08
wilee-nileeDIFTOW, Sounds like Xmas present.06:08

stunts513syria, just curious, why are you installing from teh tar.gz file?06:40

SyriaI want to learn how to compile packages and apps without using deb files or the software center.06:41
kewelsyria: gimme a sec .. I did this a few weeks back ..06:41

mavenSyria, if you try to install the flash plugin for firefox. Then extract the tar.gz file. Then copy the libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/firefox/plugins06:42

Ben64Syria: chrome uses it's own version of flash, it is built in06:44
isuruthen type .config06:44
Syriakewel:  Actually most of the times I use firefox but sometimes I use google chrome.06:44
mavenBen64, I read the README file under /etc/init.d. But I can not find anything wrong in the script. Did I miss anything?06:44

dodo3773Isn't there an alternate install disk that doesn't automatically install a bootloader?07:06
Ben64you never have to install grub07:06
MrGizmo757i was thinking i alredy have windows installed. if i install ubunu to the second partition and put grub in the home partition insted of the MBR.  then all i have to do is add the entry to the windows boot loader.  and that's the part where i get lost.07:06

isaiashello. I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and am having a problem with my graphics drivers. Both, Open Source and proprietary. Ubuntu boots up in 2d with proprietary drivers and I cant run 3D games because they freeze my computer the second that first frame loads then the game crashes a few seconds later. with Open source drivers i get an "cannot init glx" error07:38
dodo3773Siebjee: Also, is there anything maybe missed in dmesg maybe07:38
=== VD is now known as Guest69275
Siebjeedodo3773, I have not seen that page no. Quite interesting. And nothing more then a plain ' igb: eth2 NIC Link is Down' is shown in the dmesg. Before are some nfs messages, or drbd messages. Anf after are drdb messages that are saying that PingAck didn't arrive in time. And that the connection is lost.07:41

djsomsip, yeah i try changing the wall but no luck...08:49
fisherMestreLion, Well, there SHOULD be but there isn't. I thought it was weird too.08:50
cfhowlettgottwisst, on the other hand, be sure that your video display settings are at native resolution.  failure to do so could also cause display effects08:50

fisherMestreLion, On my built-in sound card there is and when I connect to it it moves BUT I still get no recording.08:50

gottwisstit's not that the game (lugaru in question) is not full resolution - rather it simply won't go full screen08:51
MestreLionfisher: have you tried using the "sound recorder" app that ships with ubuntu? just as a check. and do so while selecting the input that does have a meter that moves08:51

arkieHey guys, I want to install ubuntu on my Windows 7 laptop. Don't want dual-boot. I want just ubuntu. I downloaded ubuntu and used unetbootin to create a bootable usb drive. When I press ESC when I turn the laptop on and select to boot from the USB drive instead of the internal HDD it doesn't do anything. It's just a black screen with a flashing cursor.09:57
arkieAs soon as you press a button it just boots Windows.09:57
arkieAny idea what the problem is here?09:57
MonkeyDustarkie  it's the !nomodeset issue, i guess09:57
CericArkie did you set it in your bios?09:57
rDragonHow can I backup everything on a fat32 drive while keeping things like ownership and permissions?09:57
CericDragon, use gparted. all it does is partition a new drive off the free space.09:58

Robr3rdI am trying to get my USB Wi-Fi adapter (Netgear WNDA3100) to work in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I have installed ndiswrapper along with its dependencies, and have set up the driver for it as well. My system recognizes that the card is there and it lists all available connections even, however when I try to connect it simply enters an infinite loop of trying to connect but not succeeding. Any advice?10:02

joakimwHey guys. I know this might not be the right forum, but its my best bet right now. Is there anyone here who's been toying with raspberry pi's and LXDE? I want to know if its possible in the autostart config to not only open programs, but also to close them again? Since I want to get rid of chromium crash warnings, an easy workaround is to close it and open again. Is it possible to do that with LXDE autostart?12:10

TheHackOpsCiSense, Any errors12:12
cfhowlettjoakim_, pretty sure raspberry has its own irc ...12:12
joakimwgustav: its just a lightweight desktop, that has an autostart configuration with the pretty simple annotation that goes like @program name to start a program. But i'd like to close one12:12
gustavjoakimw: Uhm. It's a WM?12:13
cfhowlettCiSense, wubi is being dropped ... for good reason.  consider dual booting or virtualbox as workable and working options.12:13
joakimwgustav: nono, its instead of ubuntu, but this channel was my best bet12:13
gustavjoakimw: Not sure what the problem is.12:14

marahinit also supports pci passthrough. ;)12:16
cfhowlettCiSense,  as it next to what you've already got?  if it's an extended partition, sure.  MBR has a limit of 4 logical parts ...12:17
llutzcfhowlett:4 primary, not logical12:17
cfhowlettllutz, grr.  right.  I keep inverting terms.  thanks.  cisense, take note12:18
CiSensecfhowlett, it's 2TB drive divided into 8 parts12:18
cfhowlettCiSense, so I'm guessing NOT mbr partitioned ... gpt?12:18
CiSensecfhowlett, dunno, i createdthe partitons during XP install with the standard tool12:19
CiSensehow can I tell?12:19
cfhowlettCiSense, so long since I did this ...12:20
CiSensetell me about it :)12:20
cfhowlettCiSense, I think it displays if you select hdd through the windows manager and display properties12:20
llutzif it is Xp its most likely MBR, because only XP-64bit can use gpt at all and only for data12:21
CiSensechowlett, each partition is a local NTFS disk12:22
cfhowlettCiSense, OK, well, sorry, but that kind of talk is ... over my head.  ask again in the channel.  someone will know.12:23
CiSensellutz, ok yes it's 32 bit XP12:23

an0nWhat is recommended size for root partition in ubuntu 12.04?12:32
arkie_Hey guys12:32
DrGrovan0n: I put 25GB for / . Usually I keep a minimum of 10-12 GB but bigger if possible.12:33
cfhowlettan0n, 10 should me more than enough12:33
arkie_I just installed ubuntu on my laptop, for some reason when i change the brightness nothing happens.12:33
arkie_Any suggestions?12:33
DrGrovan0n: But I have a suitable 32GB SSD for root so I tend to use it to full size only for root anyhow.12:33
OerHeksarkie_, suggestion: give more details, what laptop etc12:33
arkie_OerHeks: it's an Asus UL30VT12:33
DrGrovcfhowlett: Regarding the root partition. What is preferred to use as file system for root? Does it matter greatly if it is ext4 or xfs?12:34
cfhowlettDrGrov, default is ext4.  unless you really know what you're doing and why, I'd go with that12:35
an0ncfhowlett: What kind of software is installed?12:35
cfhowlettan0n, ubuntustudio fully updated 12.04.212:35

cfhowlettDrGrov, fwiw: fully updated ubuntustudio with medibuntu and restricted extras / runs 6.8 gigs12:38
DrGrovcfhowlett: fdisk -l does not harm anyhow? It just lists partitions?12:38
Ben64DrGrov: doesn't work on gpt, and you need to use sudo with it12:38
an0nDrGrov: Normally I use 10 gb, is it enough to install ide, kde, a virtual machine and some software? Making the system updates this space would be enough?12:38
DrGrovcfhowlett: Okay, that is not bad. Then I might next time repartition my 32GB SSD a bit differently.12:38
cfhowlettDrGrov, ah, I should mention, my /home is in a separate partition12:39
DrGrovcfhowlett: Mine as well. I have a 250GB for /home and /tmp.12:39
cfhowlettDrGrov, similar to my setup.12:39
DrGrovan0n: Yes, that is enough. I just had the separate 32GB SSD in use which I did not know what to do with otherwise.12:40

DrGrovcfhowlett: What do you usually include in a partitioning? /, /home, /swap and /tmp ?12:43
gustavDrGrov: I'm on there.12:43
cfhowlettDrGrov, /home for my stuff, / for the filesystem and /swap of 2X ram, i.e. 8 gigs12:44
cfhowlettDrGrov, but that's just me ...12:44
DrGrovcfhowlett: Ah, I see. I should have also done that for /swap. Damn it. It is just 8 GB now when I have 8GB of RAM.12:45
cfhowlettDrGrov, lots of debate on /swap and ram... I just find that the 2X formula makes it a brainless decision.12:45
DrGrovcfhowlett: That is true. I had a old P2 466MHz with 128MB of RAM (upgraded to 192MB later) and had a 4GB swap.12:46
wasanzyhello12:46

an0nDrGrov: The hard drive is 80 gb I thought I'd leave this way / 10 gb, 2gb swap and 68 gb / home. I believe that is sufficient space in the root partition to use programming software, virtual machines, GUIs .. How many gb ranks ubuntu 12.04.2 installed and updated?12:49
wasanzythe name of this terminal will gold12:49
wasanzythis is not working in ubuntu, please advise12:49
cfhowlettan0n, sounds reasonable though personally, I'd double down on the ram12:50
DrGrovan0n: Do not forget the /tmp I would say.12:50
DrGrovan0n: I can check my 12.04.2 as I am running now. I have installed quite some additional stuff though but for a bit of guidance.12:51
DrGrovan0n: I am using roughly 5.2GB as of now, cleaned up quite much though. But 10GB is definitely enough for everything you need I would say.12:51
arkie_Can someone help me. I've just installed ubuntu for the first time. It's all good but I can't adjust the brightness on my laptop...12:52
DrGrovan0n: Also do as cfhowlett says, double down on the ram.12:52
cfhowlettan0n, regularly running apt-get autoremove and apt-get clean will sweep out your cache and leave more room on the /12:53

mustafa_robblue2x: It's nvidia geforce with cuda13:17

an0nphilinux: yes13:18
medwardsah perfect13:19
robblue2xmustafa_: Ah i haven't used a NVidia based hybrid GPU, but the nvidia driver is supposed to be quite good on ubuntu13:19

robblue2xmustafa_: that is strange, i've never came accross that13:23
jribmedwards: by the way, there is a ppa-purge application that does this downgrading for you13:23
arkie_hey guys, i installed a program called keepass. ive got a plugin for it that i need to drop in its directory. where can i find that in the filesystem?13:23
jribmustafa_: ignore my message please, I meant it for someone else13:23
mustafa_adamk:13:23
robblue2xarkie_: "which keepass" will tell you where the program is, but thats probably not where you want to put the plugin13:24
mustafa_i didn't install the driver yet, I am going to install it now. But first I want to make sure I can run only selected application using the nvidia and keep everything else using the intel card for battery reasons.13:24
dvyjnsphilinux, thanks mate.13:25
adamkmustafa_: That's exactly how optimus is supposed to work.13:25
adamkPersonally, I have no experience with it.13:25
philinuxdvyjns: what was it?13:25
dvyjnsphilinux, onboard graphics. I turned off "IGD multi-monitor" and when i booted linux my resolution was 1920x1080.13:26
mustafa_adamk: Optimus is what's i run fter installing bumblebee right?13:26
philinuxdvyjns: ah righto. is your graphics card built in or separate13:26
medwardsjrib: haha now have to do it for libstdc++. I feel super safe (not) but its important progress. Thanks for helping point out my herp moment and showing me how to force versions with apt!13:27
dvyjnsphilinux, separate.13:27
jribmedwards: ppa-purge might be easier for you if there are a lot of packages13:27

medwardsand I got a bunch of stuff from pgsql GIS related repos that I need for work13:29

Mr___NobodyHello , i have a problem with my ubuntu 10.04 desktop , it's hard to explain bacause i'm not english , but here is a picture ! http://postimg.org/image/iaxsvwq71/13:34
medwardsRahul_21: only one thing can use apt-get at a time, most graphical interfaces are using it all the time13:34
magesingHi everyone, I'm trying to set up my machine to be headless, with a graphical environment which can be accessed via a running x11vnc server. I have it running if my user is logged in, however, I'm having problems finding the proper .Xauthority file for the display manager. Which display manager does 12.10 use? Where does it keep it's Xauth file?13:34
Rahul_21medwards, ok,can you tell me how do i remove mysql completely and then reinstall it13:35
Rahul_21medwards, please13:35
medwardsRahul_21: What command are you entering to get the error message you posted.13:35
cfhowlettmagesing, #ubuntu-server13:35
Rahul_21medwards, sudo apt-get -f install13:35
Picicfhowlett, magesing: xorg problems are not suitable for #ubuntu-server13:36
medwardsOK, first off, you need to figure out where your other package manager is and close it. Then it should be something like sudo apt-get remove mysql-server13:36
medwardsRahul_21: ^13:36
cfhowlettPici, OK ... thought the headless thing was the key13:37
philinuxmagesing: it's always been in the home folder of the user as .Xauthority13:37

magesingphilinux: hmm ok, so my user's .Xauthority will be good even before my user is logged in?13:38
medwardsRahul_21: You have some other application open that is making it impossible to use apt-get. Find that app and close it.13:38

philinuxmagesing: see this https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RemoteXHowTo13:40
medwardsRahul_21: ps aux will show you a list of open process, lsof | grep lock | grep apt might be useful to. More than likely you have synaptic open somewhere. its a GUI application.13:40

wonko451@Prateek hardwire your box and check if you can connect, if so, then check your wireless drivers and wireless chipset15:03
Prateekmines a dektop and the modems in another room15:04
bipulcan you explain the whole scenario how are you connecting you wifi with ubuntu ?15:04
philinuxPrateek: you could try deleting the two files in .local/share/keyrings/ folder15:04
Prateekhow do i acess the .local15:04
philinuxPrateek: I would have a look in there first there maybe more than 215:04
wonko451Why would ubuntu ask for a RPM to be installed when attempting to use LVM clustering as a software raid 1 equivilent? ( error message: In order for Volume Group to be safely used in clustered environment, lvm2-cluster rpm has to be installed, `lvmconf --enable-cluster` has to be executed and clvmd service has to be running)15:04
philinuxPrateek: use the file manager to go to your home directory and the ctrl h to show the hidden files15:05
SmidthmadorI followed the instructions on ubuntu.org to burn and install the os.  I put the dvd in, rebooted and it kinda started to load windows but then I got a black screen n had to restart.  Then it said failed to restart n i had to sys restore.15:06

anewif i want to make a file 755, what do i need to make the folders it resides in?15:06
PrateekThere are three files login.keyring, user.keystore and user.keystore. UYDDVW15:06
wonko451used ubuntu software store and installed LVM gui and synaptic, and thats it15:06
PrateekShould i delete all of them , philinux15:07
philinuxPrateek: whats in there how many files15:07
fuuf515:07
PrateekMy previous message has the answer15:08
PrateekThree files15:08
PrateekLogin.keyring15:08
Prateekuser.keysore15:08
Prateekuser.keystore.UYDDVW15:08
philinuxPrateek: yes delete all and delete all the wifi connection. In other words this start the process from scratch15:08
Prateekwhat to do after deleting15:09
philinuxPrateek: if this does not solve problem then I'm out of ideas15:09
philinuxPrateek: reconnect to wifi and it then restore the passowrd in the keyring folder15:09

Prateeki dont know what ipv6 is15:14
PrateekActionParsnip, i dont know what ipv6 is15:15
ActionParsnipPrateek: normally people use IPs like 192.168.0.1 this is an IPv4 address15:16
Prateekok, ActionParsnip15:16
anewif i want to make a file 755, what do i need to make the folders it resides in?15:16

ActionParsnipPrateek: yes, more than likely, you can disable ipv6 and it can help15:17
KBurisHi, everyone. I have a dumb question. My mother is fed up with Windows on her laptop thanks to Win8's new Metro interface. I have never used Linux before except via LiveCD for portability and short-term security. Is there any way I can install, say, Ubuntu, in such a way that she will be able to retain the NTFS structure, so that her drives show up the way they would in FAT/NTFS?15:17
PrateekHow do i disable15:17
ActionParsnipKBuris: resize the NTFS in WIndows, then install to the freed space15:17
ActionParsnipPrateek: add the boot option: ipv6.disable=1    as I said earlier...15:18
Prateekhow?15:18
leptone!ticker15:18
philinuxPrateek: is this a laptop15:18
BumptiousKburis, do you need the drives to show up a C:\ and such?15:18
leptonesry15:18
Prateekno a desktop15:18
Prateekphilinux, its a desktop15:19
SmidthmadorWhat did I do wrong? I followed the instructions on ubuntu.org to burn and install the os.  I put the dvd in, rebooted and it kinda started to load windows but then I got a black screen n had to restart.  Then it said failed to restart n i had to sys restore.15:19
philinuxPrateek: I would change the router channel number in case it's interference15:19
ActionParsnipPrateek: gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub15:19
ActionParsnipPrateek: change the line with:  quiet splash    in quotes to be:  quiet splash ipv6.disable=1    save the new file and run: sudo update-grub15:20
KBurisBumptious: Yes, because I want my mother to feel comfortable in the OS, and she's been using DOS/Windows since the late\ '80s.15:20
ActionParsnipPrateek: a very simple websearch would have shown you that15:20
PrateekActionParsnip, Sorry i was a bit lazy but now i have a file opened15:21
BumptiousKBuris: I don't think there is a real way to do that.  It might suffice to place a link on the desktop that kind of looks like the C drive named something like "C drive" and she can find her old files.15:22
Prateekphilinux, If i go into 192.168.1.1 in the browser i can change the channel right?15:22
philinuxPrateek: sample method here if ipv6 fix fails. http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/laptops/how-to-get-the-best-wi-fi-signal-from-your-router-50005751/15:22
Bumptiousand perhaps she can transition to getting used to a linux home directory15:22
philinuxPrateek: yes you need to login to the router. Better from a wired machine15:23
Prateekphilinux, mine is a desktop15:23
KBurisBumptious: Most of what she needs is Firefox, OpenOffice.Org, Solitaire, Minesweeper, and a simple way to manage her files in a structure that's relatively understandable (with as little console use as possible, though last I checked, she's relatively amenable to using the CD\ command - if she knows what directory she's checking.15:23

ubottuzvx10: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD16:52

alteregoawhat kind of gpu?17:03
dan18i think it has to do with the graphic card17:03

dan18its a built in graphic card from intel17:03

alteregoadan can you pastebin the output of dmesg17:05
dan18dmesg?17:05
dan18how to i get to that, is this a file?17:05
usr13superjoe: Ok, well I can only guess about your network.  (My guess was that your router has a dhcp server running and I advised you to query the dhcp server for correct IP information and in turn connect to the network).17:06
tgm4883!pastebinit | dan1817:06
ubottudan18: pastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com17:06

superjoeusr13, I think it might be a kernel issue. It worked fine 10 minutes ago before I rebooted into a new kernel version17:09
superjoebut when I try booting into an older kernel, my display is totally fucked up - one of the screens is off and the resolution is wrong for the other17:09
superjoeI don't understand17:09
IdleOnesuperjoe: Please mind your language17:09
tgm4883superjoe, that would be because of proprietary drivers17:09
dan18there is one line, perhaps of interest: "[ 6065.593252] [drm:i915_hangcheck_hung] *ERROR* Hangcheck timer elapsed... GPU hung"17:10
=== tjbiddle_ is now known as tjbiddle
superjoetgm4883, so if I boot into an older kernel, I need to reinstall the proprietary drivers?17:10
tgm4883superjoe, no,  you would need to rebuild the kernel modules17:10
alteregoathere are FOUR... LIGHTS!17:10
dan18this error line is  included many times17:10
superjoetgm4883, but I didn't have to rebuild any kernel modules so far... why is this an exception?17:10
dan18alteregoa: is this one line from dmesg useful?17:11
tgm4883superjoe, because when you install a new kernel, a piece of magic called DKMS builds the kernel modules for you17:11
superjoeah that's what that is17:11
tgm4883superjoe, but when you just boot an older kernel, the modules don't get rebuilt17:11
superjoeso I can boot into an older kernel and run dpkg-reconfigure dkms or something?17:12
tgm4883superjoe, what you should do, is boot to the older kernel, check that networking works, and then file a bug against the new kernel17:12
superjoeok17:12
tgm4883superjoe, I doubt that would rebuild the kernel modules, and I'm unsure of how to force video drivers to rebuild the modules17:12
superjoeok17:12
tgm4883superjoe, perhaps a dpkg-reconfigure of the video drivers, but there is likely a better way17:13
superjoehm17:13
tgm4883superjoe, in either case, you should still file a bug17:13

virtuelvwilee-nilee: my concern is about how Samsung has, technically, implemented over-provisioning in their tool19:43
virtuelvwhether their SSD is treating unpartitioned space as an area for over-provisioning19:43
wilee-nileevirtuelv, I'm not familiar with over-provisioning, do you mean writes to to the drive and how often?19:43
virtuelvor whether it's some form of magic partitioning, or reconfiguration of the hardware19:44
virtuelvwilee-nilee: no, overprovisioning is, simplified, an unpartitioned space on a SSD that the SSD can use for wear levelling19:44
gustavUhm. Thunderbird just randomly crashed. What could that be?19:44
virtuelvit both improves performance and lifetime of the drive19:44
gustavIt has never done that before.19:44
wilee-nileevirtuelv, You can use a wear leveling without any unpartitioned space, ubuntu has several methods, to be honest SSD now last as long as disc drives.19:45
virtuelvwilee-nilee: Ubuntu isn't the only OS I will be running, so I need the exact technical info from someone who has actually tried the tool19:46
wilee-nileevirtuelv, To be honest then call samsung that is not within ubuntu support. ;)19:46
virtuelvwilee-nilee: I'm aware of that19:47
tgm4883virtuelv, something tells me that if you want the "exact technical info" you'll probably have to A) talk to Samsung, B) somehow get them to agree to give it to you, and C) sign an NDA19:47
virtuelvhave you ever tried Samsung (or any other megacorp's support)19:47

=== rAg3 is now known as mrigeshpokhrel
virtuelvwilee-nilee: I'm _not_ overthinking this19:51
tgm4883wilee-nilee, virtuelv I was under the impression that wear-leveling was built into the SSD drives now, not a function of the OS?19:52

ubottudazsim, please see my private message19:57
virtuelvtgm4883: over-provisioning is, briefly, setting aside space for wear-levelling (which samsung SSD's don't do by default)19:57
wilee-nileedazsim, Be careful here answer questions concisely, or we are wasting each others time. ;)19:57
virtuelvtgm4883: so my brief question was whether anyone knows exactly what Samsung's tool does when it sets aside this space19:58
w30dazsim, check the ownership of .Xdefaults or .Xauthority in your home directory and make sure they match the appropiate user19:58
dazsimok, i have 1 real account. it has admistrator priveledge. i came home to find it no longer allows me to log in fully19:58
SineTheCreatordid someone here ping me?19:58
virtuelv(Samsung is different from other vendors with this)19:58
dazsim.Xauthority is owned by the user19:58
virtuelvtgm4883: and, since I have no access to Windows, I would like a good answer somewhere about what it does, and whether leaving, say 50 GB of unpartitioned space achieves the same as samsung's tool19:59
dazsimi've also checked that /tmp has the right user20:00
NanixJust found out that jupiter is deprecated and doesn't work on 13.04 any longer. Is there any substitute for it?20:00

gustavI.e. move them like papers across a table covered in sand.21:04
nickd123I was trying grub-install /dev/ubuntu-root, also tried drive letters (split between sda and sdc)21:04
nickd123as it stands grub is not installed21:04
gustavAND works with optirun/bumblebee. :)21:04
wilee-nileenickd123, Server installs  or raid are not my area of study, however it seems the grub install command was probably wrong is my best guess.21:04
gustavNow I am finished. You may answer.21:04
djhthorisgustav, I am trying to visualize what you mean21:05
MonkeyDustgustav  try compiz config21:05
MonkeyDustgustav  it has a lot of fancy eye candy21:05
wilee-nileenickd123, Grub should probably go the the mbr, the OS has the corresponding files already is my guess.21:05
nickd123yeah mine either, all my use in the past was on single drive systems and its simple, I have tried two full installs today first with fakeraid then with software raid21:05
gustavMonkeyDust: Isn't WMs all eye candy? This isn't eye candy btw. But I know what you mean. I think it's more fluid and it's not always.21:06
gustavdjhthoris: Get some sand. :) And a paper.21:06
nickd123how do i find the mbr?21:06
wilee-nileenickd123, If not the mbr a boot partition, although that is probably not needed per-say.21:06
gustavnickd123: It's the 512 bytes of any sda, sdb, etc.21:07

nickd123I dont see that size partition anywhere just the 4gb swap and large partition21:08
nickd123wilee do you have anything that explains that in further detail21:09
djhthorisgustav, I'm not sure if xorg is even made for rotating windows at angles other than 90 degrees21:09
gustavdjhthoris: No, there's no argument or property for that, I guess. :/21:09

leehello all. I have a new install of Ubuntu 12.04 set to auto-login. upon login the screen is so dim it's unreadable. logging out and logging back in again fixes it so it's at full brightness (and the livecd was fine too). how do I fix this permanently?

tgm4883Zonko, you don't. You download a supported version21:24
Ben64Zonko: download a new iso and use it instead, 6.10 is long long since unsupported21:24
tgm4883Zonko, 6.10 has been unsupported for a very, very long time21:25
Zonko:(21:25
ZonkoSo there's no way?21:25
tgm4883Zonko, no way that is supported21:25
ZonkoCan I update the 6.10 iso without redownloading it all?21:25
leedtigue: nope, the login dialog is also dim, stays dim if I login at that point, and if I log out the brightness goes back up21:25
madpropsanybody knows a command to make networkmanager re-establish the current connection?21:25
k1lZonko: there is a way. but you are 2 years faster with downloading a new iso and install with that21:25
tgm4883Zonko, you could use zsync, but likely every package on that disk has been updated21:25
Zonko:/21:25
dtigueZonko, 6.10 wasn't a very good release anyway, either get 12.04 LTS, or 12.10, or wait a few days and get the latest and greatest 13.0421:26
Zonkookay well21:26

dtiguelee, strange, I would try installing all the updates, the see if any video drivers need to be installed by running the Additional Drivers, I know in 12.10 Additional Drivers is located under a tab in Software Sources, but I think in 12.04 it was still a separate application21:35

leedtigue: running now (I haven't updated anything since install, and there's no 3rd party drivers enabled yet)21:37
leenext question will be, is there an easy way to get rid of the default UI and replace it with something simpler (as both xubuntu and lubuntu refused to give me an X session), or rather, what's the right way of doing that21:38
dtiguelee, once you do that, then reboot and see if you still are having the screen brightness issue, make sure before rebooting, but after updating, to check and see if there is any 3rd party drivers by opening the Additional Drivers application21:38
dtiguelee, there is tons of window managers and desktop enviroments you can install, I would think that since you know you have a working X config you should be able to install any other UI and be able to get it running, if you decide to install xubuntu-desktop or whatever make sure you keep lighdm as the login manager instead of using whatever the other option is, i just installed gnome-remix on top of unity to test it out and I really like it, but I'm21:41

leedtigue: thanks for the help!21:55
centurionAll of them are checked21:55
dtiguelee, np21:55
dtiguecenturion, ok and have you opened the sound settings and went through the tabs and made sure that the right devices are selected ?21:56
w30lee, just guessing but maybe run the app as admin; like gksu <the app>21:56
dtiguew30, ?!?!21:58
dtiguecenturion, open sound settings and under the output tab make sure your sound card is checked and the sound is turned up, also make sure to look at the very bottom of that same tab where it says 'Connector' and make sure the right thing is checked in there.21:59
centuriondtigue, yes and I tested it21:59

genii-aroundRileyGuy: I do not usually suggest PPAs but I think you should probably just see http://www.webupd8.org/2012/01/install-oracle-java-jdk-7-in-ubuntu-via.html in this case. Manual install is a pain and you have to mess with moving the download into /usr/lib/jvm then tinkering with update-alternatives and so on. I'd recommend just carefully following the instructions on the web site given.22:26
