she_dyedwaterfoul_: maybe we need to figure out why you have to disable lightdm00:00
she_dyedwaterfoul_: when maybe all you need is autologin00:00
waterfoul_she_dyed I disabled lightdm because I don't need it and it just slows the boot process00:01
waterfoul_I don't want any display or window manager00:01

she_dyedyou got the idea00:03
avid_fanPinkamena_D: Well double-check that you're using the correct UPN. Where I work I found out that even though we can use DNS with a traditional domain name, company.com, the domain was setup with company.local. Stoopid to do I know, but I had no part in that.00:03

Pinkamena_Dbut for some reason it says the print share is not accessable just typing domain/user in the box00:04

avid_fanPinkamena_D: I cannot be 100% certain because I'm doing it remotely, but I added a Windows printer to my linux machine at work. I used my UPN, even when prompted to enter username, domain, and password, I left domain blank and just my johndough@company.local.00:14

avid_fanketsemoaaa: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BIND9ServerHowto , on how to setup a DNS server with Ubuntu.00:26
TomcatEvening everyone. I've an Inspiron 7720. Xubuntu 12.10 see's it's touchpad as a mouse. I've not found a settings file nor anything through google.00:26
TomcatIt's been like this with Arch, Slackware, Debian,  as well as Ubuntu00:26
avid_fanketsemoaaa: Then you'll have to contact your domain registrar, I guess GoDaddy, to let them know the address(es) of the server(s) you setup.00:27
waterfoul_shig, my google fu isn't turning up any useful guides sadly... I think you are having a driver problem which means that no matter what softwhere you use you will have an audio problem00:27
jncketsemoaaa: you can set up your own DNS server but bet aware that it's only good if someone else trusts enough to request from your server ...   simpler to use another DNS service that lists your address, unless you are going to need more advanced DNS features00:27
shigwaterfoul_, nooooooo :( well, I'm going to search a bit more on google, thanks!00:30

jncketsemoaaa: Typically, when you register a domain name (say with GoDaddy which I recommend against), they provide a DNS service and you edit the simplified domain name records via web interface00:34
jncketsemoaaa: alternately, you can have your domain name registrar use an alternative domain name server, and that I would point to one of the free DNS services (like freedns.afraid.org but not that one because I recommend against it)00:35
jncI don't have a specific suggestion since I'm not being paid for one :)00:35
waterfoul_What does ubuntu use as it's sound daemon?00:35
jncwaterfoul_: PulseAudio, I think00:36
ketsemoaaajnc: But i will write in the web interface of Godaddy?00:37
jncketsemoaaa: yeah that's more of a GoDaddy support issue ;   you're looking for a primer on the basics of how DNS records work, like "what is a DNS 'A record'? "00:38
jnc"A record" is 32-bit IPv4 ;  "AAAA record" is 128-bit IPv6 ;   "MX" record is mail exchange; "CNAME" record is an alternate name ... and so on look for that kind of information to read up about00:39
jncthose are the kind of informations you'll need to learn about and then enter into the registrar's web control panel00:39

avid_fanketsemoaaa: And if you want it accessible via a name, then you're on the right track of setting up DNS. Now you just need to decide whether you want GoDaddy to host your DNS, or someone else, or you do it on your own.00:44

jnccompi: maybe this will work for you?   force the UART type as described01:55
dr_willismarshalcure:  and how are you trying to start conky?01:55
marshalcureopen term and type conky01:56
marshalcureis that not correct01:56
dr_willismarshalcure:  it works fine for me that way01:56
compijnc, I followed all the steps in the link provided without the same results. I do not get the setserial -g /dev/ttyS* command to yield the same results as per the link.01:56
steven-deww: it was working before I used gparted, though01:56
jncah okay01:56
steven-so I guess gparted destroyed my stick?01:56
dr_willismarshalcure:  you dont see any conky widgits on the desktpp eh? did you get any error messages?  do you have a custome .conkyrc?01:57
jnccompi: I did find drivers...  but no help to you ;/01:57
marshalcure@ubottu i will have to read up on that01:57
avid_fansteven-: have to agree with deww, looks like a potential hardware problem with the drive.01:57
dr_willismarshalcure:  ubottu  is a bot.. and theres no need for the @ on irc01:57
steven-nice, at least I can say gparted destroyed my thumb drive01:57
marshalcureo sorry  i must look like a noob idiot inhere01:57
tgm4883marshalcure, post the error message, or the path to the files that aren't being removed when you purge it01:57
compijnc, I did this: sudo setserial /dev/ttyS4 uart 16550A but it still stays as  "Xscale", and does not want to work..01:57
steven-shit, its the only one I have right now01:58
marshalcureok ill try the http://past.ubuntu.com01:58
compijnc, could it be that I do not have enough serial ports specified somewhere?01:58
jnccompi: see query01:59
avid_fanmarshalcure: don't feel bad about being a newbie. We all started somewhere. Just don't expect miracles. :-)01:59

arkie_hey guys, my laptop has switchable graphics between intel and nvidia. Problem is with ubuntu I can't easily switch between them so battery preservation and more graphics power is hard to achieve when i want it. I found this fix here.02:02
arkie_However, I'm not really sure in how to use/deploy it.02:03
arkie_I'm a noob when it comes to Linux. I'm looking at the readme but I'm pretty confused.02:03
arkie_No one?02:04
steven-what I dont get, why is it listed as a device in /dev/* and why does lsusb show the drive as well?02:05
steven-if it was dead, shouldn't it be not listed at all?02:05
dr_willissteven-:  ive seen drives be in a semi-dead-damaged-wacked out state befor.02:07
tgm4883arkie_, you likely want https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee02:07
dr_willissteven-:  seen them also come back to life for a while.. then die again later..02:07
dr_willissteven-: it depends on what part of the hd died or is acting up02:07
tgm4883arkie_, looking at this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HybridGraphics#NVIDIA_Optimus it seems the vga switcheroo won't work for you02:07
=== tjbiddle_ is now known as tjbiddle
steven-hm .. and I don't know, all I did was using gparted to format it, so all I know is that like an hour ago everything worked and the drive never acted up02:08
steven-so I am 99% sure that its not a HW issue02:08
avid_fansteven-: Then do you have another box with another OS to try and "fix" it?02:09
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot02:09
steven-plugged it into my gfs windows box, same behaviour but less information :D02:09
dr_willissteven-:  how big a hd is it?02:10
steven-its a thumb drive, only 8gb02:10
dr_willissteven-:  they do have a finite life. its possible you might be able to use dd to clear it then repartion it.. but lets face it.. a 8gb flash is like $5 these days...02:11
dr_willisive seen flash drives fail in all sorts of weird ways..02:11
steven-dd doesn't work either, already tried that^^02:12
tgm4883steven-, so you can't format it in the windows box either?02:12
dr_willissteven-:  its possible it Might 'start' working eventually.. but for a usb flash - i doubt it..02:13
steven-yeah I guess I really have to head to walmart and get another one -.-02:13
avid_fansteven-: Sounds like it's "hammer time".02:13
CR-Bothello, steven02:14
ezrafreei am seeing "debian" and some graphics on my ubuntu 12.04 during bootscreen, is there any way to disable this?02:14

steven-dd cant find the of02:15
steven-which is weird because its listed in dev/02:15
ezrafreetgm4883: lmao, i dunno! i did an upgrade, that's about it really...02:15
arkieMy laptop has switchable graphics between intel and nvidia. Problem is with ubuntu I can't easily switch between them so battery preservation and more graphics power is hard to achieve when i want it. I found this fix here. https://github.com/awilliam/asus-switcheroo02:15
ezrafreethat is, i did "sudo apt-get upgrade"02:15
tgm4883arkie, I'm taking it you didn't actually see anything that I told you02:16
CR-BotDo you intelligent, ubottu ?02:16
avid_fansteven-: Might I suggest a reboot and then try dd, or fsck, or whatever once more?02:16
ezrafreei guess i should probably check google out on this02:16
dr_willisif dd fails. then the hardware is not getting detected properly.02:16
avid_fansteven-: I'm skeptical it will actually help, but stranger things have happened.02:17
CR-BotNice to met you, steven.02:17
dr_williswhich woud also explain why /dev/sdX is not seen02:17
ezrafreeCR-Bot is aliiiieeeeve02:17
steven-dr_willis: but /dev/sdb is seen02:17
ezrafreewho's all up in that eggdrop ;)02:17
steven-thats the whole confusion02:17
arkietgm4883, just saw now.02:17
arkieSo I don't have a hardware multiplexer?02:18
tgm4883arkie, IDK, doesn't sound like it from that page02:18
ezrafreehas anyone else ever experienced their grub theme in ubuntu being reset to a debian theme?02:18
tgm4883arkie, but I don't have nvidia hybrid graphics, I have amd hybrid graphics02:18
avid_fanezrafree: Nope. Sorry.02:18
tgm4883ezrafree, I think you mean plymouth02:18
wilee-nileeezrafree, Did you have or do you have another OS?02:18
arkietgm4883, but the github readme basically says that the switcheroo works on his ul30vt02:18
arkiewhich is the same model as mine.02:19
ezrafreetgm4883: plymoth?02:19
CR-BotWhat is mean aliiiieeeeve, ezrafree ?02:19
ezrafreetgm4883: what's plymouth?02:19
tgm4883ezrafree, yea, that is the boot screen02:19
dr_willissteven-:  you said eralier that dd dident see it   i thought02:19
ezrafreetgm4883: hmm i am running grub, it even says so on the bootscreen02:19
tgm4883arkie, well you could try it, IDK if it would hurt it02:19

bazhangCR-Bot, do you have an ubuntu support question02:20
steven-oh yeah ls /dev | grep sdb <- lists the device + the sdb1 partition02:20

CR-BotOk, thanks. I'm sorry.02:22
avid_fanwhat's with the CR-Bot?02:23
bazhangXabster, you could ask in ##windows for that02:23
Xabsteryes i will, sorry02:23
CR-BotOk, thanks. I'm sorry, bazhang.02:23
arkietgm4883, that switcheroo guide you linked is different from the asus-switcheroo on github02:23
avid_fanXabster: no worries. :-P02:23
arkiethe asus-switcheroo is specifically for my laptop model.02:24
steven-dr_willis: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5700361/02:24
tgm4883arkie, ok, so what is your question then?02:24
arkielook at the readme for the asus switcheroo02:24
tgm4883arkie, i am02:24
arkieim not sure what to do, i only just installed ubuntu yesterday02:25
steven-dr_willis: dd: opening ‘/dev/sdb’: No such device or address02:25
arkiei dont know what commands to run in the terminal etc..02:25
tgm4883arkie, seriously?02:25
arkieyes tgm488302:25
tgm4883did you clone the branch?02:25
steven-dr_willis: fdisk -l won't list the device02:26
tgm4883arkie, 'git clone git://github.com/awilliam/asus-switcheroo.git'02:26
steven-lsblk shows it though02:26
arkieit says build the asus-switcheroo kernel modules02:26
tgm4883arkie, you might have to install git02:26
arkiegit is installed02:26
steven-blkid doesn't02:26
arkiedid that yesterday02:26
arkieok i ran that code tgm488302:27
tgm4883arkie, so clone it, run make, then run "sudo make install-ubuntu"02:27
arkiemake install-ubuntu?02:27
tgm4883arkie, make02:28
arkiewhat target do i specify for 'make' tgm4883 ?02:28
dr_willissteven-:  looks like its  ready for replacement to me.  bbl.02:29
tgm4883arkie, IDK, I'm looking at the readme02:29
tgm4883are you in the cloned directory?02:29
avid_fansteven-: So I'm assuming your thumb drive is 'Bus 001 Device 010: ID 8644:800b' ? I find it odd that it's not identified.02:29
arkiei have to cd or something then right?02:30
tgm4883cd <directory>02:30

tgm4883arkie_, well you don't need sudo, and you need to install your kernel headers02:31
CanadianPirateQuick question, does anyone here have their system encrypted with luks?02:32
romero126so many crashes.02:32
avid_fansteven-: steven- Again I'm thinking, ok hoping, that you need to start from a "clean slate" and reboot. I'm skeptical that it will actually work, but stranger things have happened.02:32
arkieremoving the sudo doesnt help tgm488302:32
arkiehow do i install the kernel headers?02:32
tgm4883arkie, you need to install linux-headers-generic02:32
tgm4883arkie, that is assuming your system is up to date02:33
arkiesudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic?02:34
arkieis that the command tgm4883 ?02:34
tgm4883arkie, yes02:34
arkieis that why make isn't working?02:35
avid_fanarkie tgm4883 would a 'apt-get install build-essential' also be useful?02:35
Blue1xubuntu 12.04 -- they seemed to have removed rcconf -- gives me an error message about needing whiptail or dialog -- whiptail IS installed.02:35

bazhangtgm4883, for what02:42
tgm4883bazhang, for why that isn't good advice02:42
bazhangtgm4883, the root account is not enabled by default02:43
arkieso the command is sudo echo OFF > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch02:43
bazhangtgm4883, use sudo -i for a root shell if you must02:43
tgm4883bazhang, I'm not telling him to enable the root account02:43
WR-StoneQuestion:  in 2011, the VirtualBox kernel drivers were labeled "tainted crap" and was responsible for a lot of instability.  Is this still the case?02:43
arkieis that the correct command tgm4883 ?02:44
tgm4883arkie, no, that still won't work02:44
arkieYep, it isn't.02:44
arkieWhat am I doing wrong?02:45
tgm4883arkie, although something like 'echo OFF | sudo tee <FILEPATH>' would probably work02:45
arkiewhat does the 'tee' do?02:45
tgm4883tee - read from standard input and write to standard output and files02:45
arkie_tgm4883: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5700396/02:47
tgm4883arkie_, I have a feeling that was just drivers for it and you still have to install vgaswitcheroo02:49
arkietgm4883, i see02:49
arkieor could it be that debugfs isn't automatically mounted tgm4883 ?02:50

avid_fanromero126: Playing pirate?02:54
romero126So many crashes.02:54
bazhangmarshalcure, what are you trying to display using pastebinit? it's command | pastebinit usually, not filename pastebinit02:54
romero126Chrome crashed. ...02:54
romero126well rather lightpd related crash docking and undocking UI in chrome.02:55
avid_fanromero126: Oh, I see. I have to say, imho, Chrome on Linux < Chrome on Windo$e.02:55
romero126This is the 5th crash in 3 hours that is x related.02:56
avid_fanromero126: It makes me kinda sad.02:56
marshalcureo sorry i tried in terminal " conky | pastebinit" but i get a error saying im trying to send a black document.02:56
WR-Stoneromero126, Yeah, I get that a lot in Chromium.  I think I've got an unstable add-on.  It usually crashes the add-ons first, then the browser.  Then I have to ps and find the errant, still-running chromium processes, and kill them.02:56
bernsteinBen64, thank you for helping me fix 90% of my issues last night, much appreciated02:56
ironmigHello. Can I ask questions about the server edition or is this strictly desktop version questions?02:57
romero126Its not a chromium specific error with me. its alot of gui based errors.02:57
CharcoalcatDoes anyone happen to know about problems with Access 2010 in PlayOnLinux? The problem is it thinks all my tables are secretly called ' "' (a space followed by a quotation mark) and won't let me run the query wizard because of it. (I'm required to use it for a class.)02:57
bazhangmarshalcure, whats the end goal here? to remove the last remnants of a conky config just a few kb in size or less?02:57
avid_fanironmig: You can ask, but #ubuntu-server might be more appropriate.02:57
romero126I update my machine every day, and im getting intermittant errors where its not a continual crash and non conditional.02:58
avid_fanromero126: What version of Ubuntu and Chrome? Just curious.02:58
WR-StoneCharcoalcat, My experience with Wine isn't good with MS products.  They use so many undocumented system calls that they tend to be incompatible.  I suggest standing up a Windows VM and running MS products in the VM.02:58
romero126the only link is unity and lightdm02:58
tgm4883arkie_, I think so02:59
marshalcureto get a fresh install of conky. but those remnants are clinging to every fresh install and throwing errors02:59
romero126Ubuntu is at 12.10 and Chrome is at the latest.02:59
ironmigOkay. So I'm going to turn my old computer into a server for minecraft/teampeak for me and a few friends. Would the conserved resources of using the server edition be worth the difficulty to set it up?02:59
bazhangmarshalcure, have you read the conky beginners guide yet?02:59
tgm4883marshalcure, I'm still waiting for an error message or list of files that aren't getting removed03:00
avid_fanironmig: are you afraid of the command line?03:00
WR-Stoneironmig, Oddly enough, I've been pecking at setting up a MC server on Ubuntu 12.10.  I have an older desktop computer running the desktop edition.  I don't see any system performance issues on it.  The PC is vintage about 2004.03:00
marshalcurethe files are conky.conf and conky_no_x11.conf in the etc folder in root03:01
romero126I know enough to do alot of dmg in linux and its still lame. :/03:01
bazhangmarshalcure, was that a yes or no to my question? have you read the conky beginners guide yet?03:01
avid_fanironmig WR-Stone : in my experience minecraft can consume considerable RAM, so Ubuntu server, without X, can help you there.03:01
tgm4883marshalcure, those files don't belong to the conky package03:03
WR-Stoneavid_fan, I have the same experience.  I have to use adjusted settings to artificially limit it.  Anyway, I don't know if Server would be better than Desktop.  Theoretically, sure.  Hard to say if you'll feel a difference, though.  MC is the resource hog.  ;)03:03
ironmigI guess I am a bit afraid of the command line, I just don't know were to look on resources of what commands you can use. I also want it to be completly remotely controlled so I can just stick it in a cloest without keyboard, mouse, or moniter. IS this possible and were do I look to set this up?03:03
tgm4883marshalcure, which is why they aren't getting removed when you purge that package03:03
CharcoalcatWR-Stone: I did set up a virtual VM, but it says I need to install Service Pack 2! I did, and it still says so :(03:03
tgm4883marshalcure, they belong to the conky-std package03:03
Charcoalcat(XP and Vista! Can't get ahold of a Windows 7 iso.)03:03
marshalcureso if i purge that will it take them with it03:04
arkietgm4883, tried rebooting same thing, just says no file or directory03:04
tgm4883marshalcure, also, they aren't in /etc, they are in /etc/conky/ (at least in 12.10)03:04
arkieso i guess you're right and i actually need to install vgaswitcheroo03:04
sprezzaturaare there any scripts to provision an ubuntu server. things like check for sysctl and kernel params. networking etc?03:04
WR-StoneCharcoalcat, Hm ... don't know what to tell you.  I'm fighting Win8 VirtualBox install at the moment.  :P03:04
tgm4883arkie, I still think you need to install vgaswitheroo03:04
Monkeytoehas anyone here been able to get ubuntu to install on a surface pro?03:04
marshalcuresorry that is where there at03:04
arkieis that just sudo apt-get install vgaswitcheroo or something?03:04
tgm4883arkie, yes03:04
avid_fanWR-Stone: Agreed MC is piggy. But it's my opinion that if I can save some MB from not running X, then MC can have it. :-)03:04
WR-Stoneironmig, Yes, it's possible.  However, if you don't know the command line, you may find it rather daunting.03:05
WR-Stoneavid_fan, Yep, I hear you.  Again, theoretically, yes, a GUI-less box will have more resources to devote to MC.03:05
tgm4883ironmig, what specs on the server?03:06
avid_fanironmig: Wow, I'd have to suggest server to save as much RAM as possible for MC. Since administering MC cannot be done with some sort of GUI (that I'm aware of), running X just to give you a terminal seems silly.03:06
arkieinstalled vgaswitcheroo and same thing with that command tgm4883 no suchg file or directory03:06
ironmig_Sorry client crashed I am a bit afraid of the command line, I just don't know were to look on resources of what commands you can use. I also want it to be completly remotely controlled so I can just stick it in a cloest without keyboard, mouse, or moniter. IS this possible and were do I look to set this up?03:06
tgm4883ironmig, what specs on the server?03:07
arkieany other ideas?03:07
WR-Stoneironmig, Yes, it's possible.  However, if you don't know the command line, you may find it rather daunting.  The MC setup seems reasonable (I'll see if I can find the link I was using), but I've been using a command line since 1977.  ;)03:07
avid_fanironmig: I've been running an older HP ML350 for my MC server (3GB RAM), but I've recently switched to "desktop" hardware, Dell Optiplex 760 to conserve power.03:08
tgm4883arkie, sorry, i'm out of ideas03:08
ironmig_It is a AMD phenom ii x6, Radeon HD 6950, 8gb DDR3, 1TB mechanical hard drive, 650watt psu03:08
tgm4883ironmig_, how many friends?03:08
ironmig_Maybe 10 total on the server03:08
tgm4883ironmig_, that should be plenty of resources I think03:09
avid_fanironmig_: For your "ultimate" setup, you're going to have to learn about many things like, command line, screen/byobu, & ssh.03:09
WR-Stoneironmig_, Here's the guide I've been using:  https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-a-minecraft-server-on-linux03:09
WR-StoneIt includes the SSH instructions, as well as how to use screen.03:09
avid_fanWR-Stone: Good find.03:10
tgm4883I just wrote an upstart job03:10
ironmig_YEah. I'm fine with learning. I love learning things about computers. I just find it hard to find good resources on server stuff and everyone uses terms that I don't understand03:10
WR-Stonetgm4883, That'd work, too.  But screen may be easier for someone who doesn't know the command line or scripts.03:10
avid_fantgm4883: I'm not a MC expert, but how would you admin the server after starting it, assuming you're not playing as OP?03:10
WR-Stoneavid_fan, I was actually working on it earlier today.  ;)03:11
tgm4883WR-Stone, true, but then it doesn't start and stop the server03:11

=== Wug is now known as Wug[Hyperspace]
WR-Stonetgm4883, I agree, and when I've got it up, I'll probably do an upstart script.  Gotta get it actually running, first.  ;)03:11
avid_fanironmig_: I'll have to look into that. Sounds interesting.03:11
tgm4883avid_fan, note, I've only been playing MC for a few days though, so IDK if that's a bad idea or not. It's just a family server, so it's probably fine03:12
tgm4883WR-Stone, having issues getting it running?03:12
avid_fantgm4883: Me too, the family part. It's just that I don't always play, but I get asked to do this, that, or the other. So to each his own... :-)03:13
=== Wug[Hyperspace] is now known as Wug
WR-Stonetgm4883, See, I have this little project of modeling the US public debt in MC as gold blocks.  Turns out that with unfunded mandates, it's a cube roughly 500 blocks in every direction.  I want to stick it on the net and let people connect and be amazed at the friggin' mountain of gold.  I'm not really having trouble getting the server up, more easily creating an object of that size.  I was mostly working on that part.03:14

AcidRainmy ubuntu 12 system keeps making beepy sounds03:21
AcidRainit sounds like its mounting something03:22
AcidRainthis happens roughly once every minute. it makes beep beep, beep beep beep03:22
WR-StoneAcidRain, It's two beeps, a pause, and three beeps?03:22
AcidRainno. its sounds like 5 beeps x203:22

avid_fanAcidRain: I immediately started singing, 'She'll be comin' around the mountain...'03:23
Morphythis davmail thing is an interesting concept03:23
WR-StoneHm ... no idea.  Sometimes the PC BIOS beeps, but that's before boot.  I'll Google and see what I can find.03:24

Morphyavid_fan, nice - just that it's an interesting concept to detach Exchange support out of evolution or thunderbird and convert it into a stand-aline app03:25
avid_fanAcidRain: How does it "sounds like its mounting something"? Is there HDD noise associated with the beeps?03:25
arkiei found this03:25
avid_fanMorphy: sorry, just in a mood to be cheeky. :-)03:25
AcidRainavid_fan, no. usually when i mount a drive, it makes a sound.03:26
Morphyavid_fan, totally understand - don't worry, I can take it :)03:26
AcidRainthis time when i booted automounter mounted 2 external drives.03:26
AcidRainalso, my system hangs during these beeps for a moment03:26
WR-StoneAcidRain, You mean like mounting a CD or something?  With magnetic or USB drives, I've never heard a thing.03:26
AcidRainwell how do i turn it off? lol03:26
avid_fanAcidRain: I have to agree with WR-Stone, never heard of such a situation.03:27
WR-StoneAcidRain, I'd be inclined to type 'dmesg' at the command line after you get beeps.  There might be something going wrong under the hood that's being caught by logging.03:27
avid_fanMorphy: Agreed. Hadn't heard of davmail, but why not? Sounds interesting.03:28

About halfway through the guide, I run into a section where it tells me to use the command "sudo e2fsck -f /dev/mapper/hardy-root" -- obviously, I'm not on hardy so this command does not work. I tried replacing the word hardy with quantal, but it still finds no partition. What am i doing wrong?04:39

bazhang!openvpn | michaela05:04
ubottumichaela: OpenVPN is a vpn technology in Ubuntu, sudo apt-get install openvpn and then see http://openvpn.net/ and see the documentation "HOWTO" noting you have already installed it. ;-) It rocks!05:04
nurowCan anyone explain "lvreduce -L 1G" to me? This reduces the partition TO 1 Gig, or BY 1 gig?05:04
michaelahow does it work. i know vpn is server client. so if i install the client do i need to install a server for it05:04
bazhangmichaela, did you read the link ?05:05
michaelayes its just the website i went there but its confusing05:06

bazhangmichaela, and you read the "howto" ?05:07

jaurrisonhey guys I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 and the unity launcher is completely black05:28
nurowand if I try to mount the volume now it fails05:28
she_dyedyeah dmesg | tail05:28
dwkwat least you can install it. mine goes black after i hit ente to install and i get nothing after that.05:28
Allardso does somebody has a clue on what can be done?05:29
basil_kurian_Is it possible to increase the value of  'nofile' in /etc/security/limits.conf beyond  6553505:29
nurowshe_dyed, any ideas? should I link you to the guide i'm following05:29
rob_pmichaela: Have a look at their Website.  There's lots of great documentation available there too.05:29
she_dyedgot to learn to read those messages05:29
michaelarob_p: do you have to buy service from a vpn server with openvpn or is open vpn some thing that i have to rig up05:29
she_dyednurow: ^^05:29
WACOMaltAnyone know how to control the fan on a laptop where sensors-detect doesnt find any fan controllers? Windows is able to control the fan fine using a few free programs.05:29
WACOMaltJust trying to set it to 100% since this laptop's heat management is terrible05:29
WACOMaltWhats odd is Linux is able to step the fan speed up and down. if I hit 80 degrees it steps up, just not enough.05:30
WACOMaltso linux CAN control the fan somehow. but I have no idea how it's doing it05:30
rob_pmichaela: It depends on what you are trying to accomplish, and what you plan on providing for yourself.05:30
nurow"dmesg | tail" is that for me?05:30
she_dyedyes nurow it is your best lead05:31
nurowoh god: http://pastebin.com/zTpjS3wz05:31
jaurrisonso what's with the black unity launcher thing?05:31
rob_pmichaela: If you are just looking to get connected to a, "Personal VPN Provider" then you can use OpenVPN as a client to connect to their service (for a fee, of course).05:32
michaelarob_p: i just wont to protect myself on public wifi and have true anonymity05:32
Allardwhat is that command she_dyed05:33
rob_pmichaela: If you have access to a server somewhere and want to run your own VPN server, you can do that too.05:33
nurowactually i think those last 3 errors are from when I was trying to make the swap too large. I ultimately made the swap 512m because it wouldn't let me make my swap any larger. my old swap was 7.79G05:34
michaelarob_p: oh i see than openvpn is for making my own rig05:34
rob_pmichaela: A VPN is a good choice for protecting your data on a public/untrusted network.  It's not really intended for anonymizing though.05:34
poisoned_dragonnurow: are you using a 32bit or 64bit os05:36
michaelaok thanks rob_p05:36
rob_pmichaela: Yeah, you can, "roll your own" with OpenVPN.05:36
poisoned_dragonwith a 32bit distro, your swap can't be bigger than 4gb.05:36
poisoned_dragonah, ok. Just checking05:37
michaelarob_p: i get it know thanks for you help05:37
nurowI am completely stumped and completely afraid :(05:38
rob_pmichaela: welcome, good luck...05:38
wilee-nileenurow, Did you just delete the swap or try top resize it?05:40
she_dyed7 start from the beginning nurow05:40
nurowI was instructed to delete and recreate the swap by the ResizeEncryptedPartition guide.05:41
nurowhere is a pastebin of everything: http://pastebin.com/PYrT3Zxs05:41
she_dyedyou're following a guide that came out with hardy right nurow05:44
nurowthis is the guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ResizeEncryptedPartitions05:46
she_dyedwait did you resize the swap thats on the lvm05:47
nurowyes, the guide has me remove that swap and then recreate it05:47
nurowthe two commands: sudo lvcreate -L 512m -n swap_1 hardy05:48
nurowsudo mkswap -L swap_1 /dev/hardy/swap105:48
nurowthat second command in the guide has a typo between swap and 1, so I changed swap1 to swap_105:49

rob_pSutarmekeg: There are endless possibilities as to why it's freezing. Nobody here would know for sure without some background (what you've done recently to it, what troubleshooting steps you've taken, etc.).05:55

auronandacenurow: ah sorry, i thought you meant you gave ubuntu a root partition of that size07:36
rifterokay guys I have an incredibly simple question. I am trying to create a new partition on a new 4TB disk. However, every tool has some problem. cfdisk said it would create a 4TB partition but the partition only ended up being 1.7TB instead. gparted said the same thing but it tried to create liek a 7TB partition even though it said that it was making a 4TB one, and that didn't work. plain old fdisk, well, on that I seem to have had a probl07:36
rifterem setting the sector size or something correctly07:36
she_dyedbut once he gets the mount working, he'd be almost done07:36
nurowOH, lol07:36
nurownah i'm shrinking my main partition so I can increase the size of the root partition07:37
rifterI can pastebin the gparted error if you like. I hate it when gparted breaks07:37
rifterseems like tehre was some otehr tool but IO forget what it was, and the Ubuntu docs only  talk about gparted07:38
ejvrifter: parted07:39
nurowshe_dyed, on the /dev/mapper/ubuntu-root vs. /dev/ubuntu/root.. both of those pathes are basically in this guide in their hardy version... do you think it is a problem with the guide where it had me mess up my partitions?07:39
rifterejv, ok thanks I will try that07:39
she_dyednurow this page says the physical partition should now match the new size http://is.gd/Z69Rk307:40
she_dyedidk if your guide has that step but seems your system responds the same whether its 'mapper' or 'ubuntu'07:41
ejvrifter: you need an EFI standard BIOS and you need to use a GUID partition table (GPT) to address 4TB of disk.07:41
ejvrifter: `man parted` should suffice07:41
nurowmy guide had no references to fsck like ths guide does07:42
she_dyedwait thats without LUKS07:43
she_dyedignore that then07:43
nurowbut this guide is not for luks07:43
nurowshould i follow that?07:45
nurowa wrongly sized partition table is definitely the problem here. I'm not sure how to tell which partition is wrongly sized though07:47
ejvI'd pastebin the commands you already performed, in order, so someone can make sense of what's happened07:48
nurowsure, I'll do a new one, one sec07:48
rifterejv, yeah I am looking at that, two things pop up.. it seems not to support ext4 although I don't think that has to be a parameter at the partition level, and it doesn;t show me a number I can use o say just use the whole disk07:49
rifterejv, the user's manual on gnu's site, and the man page don't even talk about ext4.. they just say it does not support ext3 and talks about that you can only set ext207:50

rifterejv, seems like tehre was another gui tool that was more forgiving, but I forget what. Maybe you can see what gparted is doing.. let me pastebin that error07:51
nurowwait, this command, I think this must be it:07:52
ejvrifter: you're partitioning, not creating a filesystem, these are completely different operations that are independent of one another07:52
nurowsudo lvreduce -L -10G /dev/ubuntu/root07:52
nurowhow do I reverse that?07:52
rifterejv, yes I know that, it's just there is a partition type part and for soem reason parted and gparted want to set that to a filesystem specific thing instead of just using one for linux07:53
ejvrifter: you are mistaken07:55
ejvrifter: this should basically be a handful of commands: parted /dev/sdX; mklabel gpt; mkpart primary <start> <end>07:56
Dave77how do i make a usb stick global writable in fstab?07:56
nurowtried to extend, but I don't have enough space07:56
rifterI used to do this manually with cfdisk and fdisk before, but for some reaosn they are not working.. anyway this is the result when I tell gparted to make a partition of size 3815447 for ext4 which the former is the default: "partition length of 7814033408 sectors exceeds the07:57

rifterejjv and as I ssaid gpaerted explicitly requires choosing a filesystem from the dropdown. What it actual;ly does wih the partition when you do that I dunno08:00
rifterejv, so there is NO option fror not speciftying file system types08:01
rifterejv,  here I will pasted na dyou wills ee what I mean08:01

ejvrifter: do you have an EFI standard BIOS that would support a disk of this size?08:23
rifterejv, which is interesting. at first I thought it was saying that itw as trying to create like a 7TB partition when I told it to do a 4TB one. Yes I believe I do have a bios that supports a disk of this size. It shows as the right size in the BIOS08:24

ejvnurow: You could possibly boot your system using the Ubuntu LiveCD environment or Knoppix (I'm old school like that) and then manually "guess" how your partition was laid out prior. The major issue is that mkfs is a destructive operation that writes new superblocks, inodes, bitmaps, etc. throughout the target partition. Any data at those locations were overwritten by the new structure.08:35
alimj1bal: You said you Ctrl+C during the process. Why cant you check within the remaining files?08:36

The major issue is that mkfs is a destructive operation that writes new superblocks, inodes, bitmaps, etc. throughout the target partition.

hoxerdespair it is. I'm editing files that I don't own through gedit/sftp.. everytime I save.. I get ownership of the file. How is that even possible08:57
hoxerit feels like a giant hole in the permission system.08:57
vlthoxer: Maybe the old file is removed and a new one is written.08:58
ejvnurow: There's also the fact you have a layer an additional layers of LVM and encryption, which makes getting at the data more difficult. That said, it's not impossible to recover data, but it's outside the realm of support I can provide.08:58
hoxervlt: Hmm, that's a good suggestion.. I wouldn't know how to check it though08:59

CrazyBirdHello! I need help with this. I've set up ubuntu 12.10, installed LAMP and OpenVPN. After a bit of set-up work, I can connect to the VPN from the LAN and from outside (Internet). The problem is I can ping the server from the LAN, but not from outside. The server can't ping the client when it is outside the LAN. I have firewall disabled in the server and configured my router to bypass VPN port. What can I do?09:29

agarwoodHi, how are you ? Sorry I have a problem, when I make a disk EXT4 with gparted, I can't create any file and also change name of this partition, but I can do all this things with a NTFS... Why ? Thank you09:36

agarwoodI mean create any file in this partition, sorry09:36
arkie_There was a commit which moved the .dll to the 'mono' folder09:37
arkie_I'm just not sure how to reflect this in the actual command.09:37
MonkeyDustarkie_  it's a ppa, careful with it -- .dll is windows, why do you want to use a windows solution for something ubuntu?09:37

MonkeyDustarkie_  ppa's are not supported here09:39

LinuxHorstigoryonya, http://www.usr-local-share.com/?p=59409:40
arkie_How should I adjust the command to reflect this MonkeyDust ?09:40

SutarmekegAny magicians here who know about random freezes that are not nvidia or ivy bridge related?09:45
CrazyBirdSutarmekeg: freezes can be refrigerator related... XD09:46
SutarmekegI knew I shouldn't use my laptop there. :D09:47
SutarmekegThanks, that'll probably solve my problem... or not.09:47
CrazyBirdIt could be anythink09:47
CrazyBirdFirst you should check if it is caused by the hardware09:47
SutarmekegI know for sure it is not the ram09:47
SutarmekegI ran memtest from a live usb overnight.09:48
SutarmekegCame up clean.09:48
CrazyBirdbut it could be anything, even motherboard or the power supply09:48
SutarmekegHow might I go about eliminating other hardware, keeping in mind it is a laptop and I can't actually take anything out :)09:48
NaGeL_Workhello i have this little question can someone help me out? http://askubuntu.com/questions/280586/screen-and-webcam-recording-with-nvidia-bumblebee09:48
SutarmekegI suspected it was something to do with my bios being out of date09:49
Sutarmekegbut I updated it09:49
CrazyBirdI suggest you to run a few bootable operating systems and check if freezes are replicated there09:49
SutarmekegI actually filed a report09:49

Sharetelplease can someone let me know how can this be fixed09:50
SutarmekegOh, linux mint has it too, the freeze.  But based on ubuntu, so I'm sure it's no surprise.09:50
CrazyBirdWell, debian is like ubuntu so i'd try maybe fedora or another non debian linux09:51
MonkeyDustSharetel  quite obvious: the package does not exist, or you mistyped it09:51

davPici: to answer my own question, I think it's: ubuntu-minimal + ubuntu-standard + xubuntu-desktop + ubuntu-restricted-addons + linux-generic + language-pack-en13:44

ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP.

Bauer1 thank you subz3r0, that is good guide for installing, but I already have nvidia-304 installed (nvidia-current pakcage), it doesnt explain how to switch to the newer beta version... but maybe its not such a good idea, on beta version of ubuntu..13:59
subz3r0Bauer1: its up to you. i would never use a beta on a stable system. but you can use this tutorial for installing the beta driver too14:00
subz3r0should be the same way14:00
Bauer1lol, I just realized I didnt ask in ubuntu+1 :) but well, after extra thoughts, I think I will wait for 13.04 at least to be final, before I try beta drivers..14:01

subz3r0you have to download the source package14:04
subz3r0and compile it by hand14:04
Bauer1whoa, now this is a bit too much subz3r0 :) 4 yr old guide, and then having to recompile on every kernel update, I think I will wait for a package in this case :) but thanks!14:07
subz3r0Bauer1: but whats with your statement? it will work or not? ;D14:08

Herbertwestgenii-around okok ty i'll see!! ty14:31
davMonkeyDust: mplayer IS debris in this case14:31
davMonkeyDust: since I marked at as automatically installed14:31
MonkeyDustdav  sudo apt-get purge mplayer;sudo apt-get autoremove     should do the job14:32
genii-aroundHerbertwest: When I search for fingerprint in the repositories, looks like fprintd is currently the main one being used. But of course your hardware needs to have a a driver which works first14:32
Herbertwestgenii-around np ty :D14:32
davMonkeyDust: mplayer is marked as automatically installed and nothing depends on mplayer. Why is autoremove not removing it?14:33
MatheusMonkeyDust ok, I tried installing ubuntu couple weeks ago, then I had an ubiquity problem, it seems like an installation problem, I send the problem to the launchpad, but I tried intalling it again and it worked. But it wasn`t alright cause the system kept freezing and crashing a lot, which is strange cause my friends told me a lot of people were using ubuntu cause it's a very stable system14:33
davMonkeyDust: isn't autoremove removing all such packages?14:33
MonkeyDustdav  no further advice14:33
davMonkeyDust: thanks anyway.14:33
MatheusMonkeyDust after it freezing I tried reinstaling the system, I did two times, but it kept the problems, the third time I tried it it wouldn`t install, had the problems with ubiquity again14:35
MonkeyDustdav  try this line, but it's more thorough, removes ALL debris   dpkg -l | awk '/^rc/{print $2}' |  sudo xargs dpkg -P14:35
MatheusMonkeyDust after a lot of time, I have sent the report to launchpad, I received an email, telling that due to the logs, the person thought it could be a problem of faulty memory14:36
davMonkeyDust: those are packages that have config files but aren't installed. My pkg is fully installed..14:37
MatheusMonkeyDust so a friend of mine told me to try running lubuntu which is lighter, so I tried, but it won`t start14:37
MatheusMonkeyDust theres a problem with kernel panic14:38
davMonkeyDust: does autoremove not remove all pkgs marked as automatically installed which aren't depended on by another manually installed package?14:38
MonkeyDustdav  maybe the people in #bash have a script to do what you want14:38
davMonkeyDust: I just want to understand what autoremove does.14:38

dreinulltgm4883: no, apparently not. First they forced my to install Java now this. I lost an hour to that crap.15:54
BluesKajstork91-U, you seem to have a network problem , not an irc client problem , and if you're on a WAN , then check with the admins about irc permission on your network15:54

tgm4883she_dyed, if it periodically doesn't work for a few seconds, why would upnp be to blame? (not to mention, it's probably a home router which shouldn't be blocking outgoing traffic)16:04

stork91_Utgm4883, Atlantic777, as I recall, I set it because I was running something that required me to have access though a firewall, but I wasnt behind one... so I set it to that to test and then forgot to turn if off... DOH!16:22

tgm4883stork91_U, well you were behind a firewall (the router likely has one built in)16:22

Lou_how do you enable/disable GPU rendering in Ubuntu?16:34
BluesKajLou_, so you want cpu rendering rather than gpu , I tjhink the raster setting does that on onboard graphics16:34

Atlantic777JR1: actually, there's something similar to usbmon for serial port.16:38
OerHeksBluesKaj, i think software rendering cannot be combined with GPU rendering, or GPU driver or Nouveau?16:38
CharcoalcatI think I solved the problem of accidentally sending windows to other workspaces by setting the workspace count to 1 in MyUnity (and then restarting the computer). Now there aren't any workspaces to switch to, and the icon is gone, so it shouldn't happen again.16:38
Lou_in windows internet explorer, you would go to "internet options" and click "enable software rendering"16:38

SliderXhello , i think i need a big help , i have a program called UCLSYN i download it but it seems that i have a problem with installing it17:06
tgm4883llutz, true, which is why I asked which IP he was talking about, since most people dealing with apache want it publically available (eg. the internet). Meaning his router is getting in the way17:06
squisherHi, can anyone tell me if ubuntu server also uses network manager? Or if not, what script does the net config?17:07
llutzsquisher: /etc/network/interfaces17:07
Atlantic777JR1: it means that if application asks you to choose port you should choose ttyS0 or /dev/ttyS017:07
SliderXyeah it a program used for my unversity17:08
squisherllutz, that's the configuration file, but what script acts on it?17:08
llutzsquisher: /etc/init.d/networking (ifupdown)17:09
squisherlike, what program is actually reading that file? and I'm not talking about ifup/down :)17:09
wilee-nileeSliderX, What is UCLSYN gotta a link?17:09
squisherllutz, on my desktop install all /etc/init.d/networking does is start some "upstart job"17:09
SliderXyes i have a link ,  ftp://ftp.astro.keele.ac.uk/pub/bs/uclsyn.tar.gz17:10
JR1i'll try it17:10
squisher/lib/init/upstart-job networking start  # where do I find what that does17:10
wilee-nilee!details | SliderX No one will download that randomly17:11
ubottuSliderX No one will download that randomly: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."17:11
tgm4883squisher, are you on 13.04?17:11
squishertgm4883, 12.0417:12
SliderXok i am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS , when i download this program it says that you should have tsch shell , if it bash shell you will change the code , i dont have information about this17:13
tgm4883squisher, I find that hard to believe, since the networking scripts weren't converted to an upstart job in 12.0417:13
squishertgm4883, precise -- isn't that 12.04?17:14
SliderXi can send you in private the instructions that i recieved from my doctor , maybe you can help17:15
tgm4883squisher, in any case, the message you recieved means it was converted to an upstart job, and was notifying you that you should now use "sudo service networking <command>"17:15
wilee-nileeSliderX, http://www.astro.keele.ac.uk/~bs/publs/uclsyn.pdf17:15
squishertgm4883, i'm not trying to restart it, I'm trying to find out what it actually does17:16
wilee-nileethat is about all I can do as far as helping, good luck. SliderX17:16
tgm4883squisher, what "/lib/init/upstart-job networking start" does?17:16
Socket-_Hey guys, during my apt-get upgrade today I got the following error about my linux image.  Any advice?  http://apaste.info/15HY17:16
squishertgm4883, yes, like there has to be some script that upstart uses, right? That's what I'm looking for17:16
hachreSocket-_: your harddrive is full17:17
tgm4883squisher, it does a lot of things17:17
santezyou have skype girls?17:17
wilee-nileesantez, This is ubuntu support.17:18
squishertgm4883, well, any pointers on where to look? dpkg -L upstart doesn't list anything that seems network specific17:18
tgm4883squisher, and it wouldn't, you need to look at the actual job "/etc/init/networking.conf17:18

rysticso, i'm pretty confused as to why my ACLs aren't working the way i expect them to17:24
rystici set some defaults, but new files i create don't get the ACLs i expect17:24
cdkhey i have a quick question, can anyone help m,e?17:24
d1gitalMy USB device is being automatically removed after a seemingly-random interval... I compiled with CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND disabled, and there is no /power interface in the device's sysfs.  What circumstance could lead to the sudden removal of my device?17:24
dhcianyone here proficient with ion3 or notion window managers? I don't really see a sample for how to from a single script tile and split windows and launch programs in them.17:24
lotuspsychje!ask | cdk17:24
ubottucdk: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience17:24
dhcido you think it isn't really a window manager but more like a programmable windowing environment at that point, perhaps that's why it's not even possible?17:25
d1gitalI can emulate the behaviour with "echo 1 > /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-1/remove"17:25
rystici've set the default ACL for the group to: group::r-x17:25
rysticbut when i do touch test17:25
rystici see group::r-x #effective:r--17:26
brian_Hey guys, I am currently running 12.04 LTS (32-bit) and am considering upgrading to 12.10 (64-bit). Anybody with experience regarding this idea. Good or not.17:26
rystici understand that #effective has to do with the blending of the posix permissions and the ACL, and that it also has something to do with the default mask17:26
peterCNhello where am i17:27
rysticbut after reading and re-reading the man pages and googling around a bunch, i still don't understand how to fix it17:27
SonikkuAmericabrian_: Well, you'll need to get a 12.10 amd64 live image, back up your /home folder and do a fresh install.17:27
peterCNtell me17:27
she_dyedd1gital: any reason you had to recompile just curious17:28
madpropseverybody upload screenshots of your desktop here http://muhfreedom.com/linux17:28
elijahDo all the upgrade scripts for 12.10 run if I go from 12.04 to 13.04 stable (when it is out)?17:29
brian_SonikkuAmerica: Done all that. What is your recommendation on the upgrade. I got this Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.40GHz x 8 with 16GiB memory.17:30
elijahIs it recommended to upgrade from 12.04 => 13.04, skipping 12.10?17:30
SonikkuAmericaelijah: The upgrade process is from 12.04 > 12.10 > 13.04.17:30

lotuspsychje_elijah: i would clean install17:30
elijahSonikkuAmerica: So, I probably won't see an option to upgrade to 13.04 until I upgrade to 12.10?17:30
SonikkuAmericaelijah: Look at what lotuspsychje_ said.17:30
elijahlotuspsychje_: Yeah, I normally would want to do that but I use this for dev work and don't really have the time to setup a new environment right now.17:31

lotuspsychje_elijah: a clean install will make life easy17:31
elijahMaybe I will just wait until next LTS17:31
SonikkuAmericabrian_: Yeah, you'll want to upgrade, but there is no way to change your architecture... otherwise I don't get what you're trying to sya.17:31
elijahOr maybe I will get an identical computer to install 13.10 on and then sync it, would be good to have a backup anyways.17:32

brian_SonikkuAmerica: Does that mean I will have to re-install everything from scratch? Then restore my home folder and be good to go?17:34
SonikkuAmericabrian_: Yes, but unless everything you installed is from PPAs, it's just a matter is [ sudo apt-get install whatever ]17:34

genii-aroundWhy do you want to take 0x0 screenshots?17:41
SonikkuAmericagenii-around: The heck filed that bug.17:41
SonikkuAmericabrian_: So why would you unplug it? The Ubuntu installer lets you select which hard drive you want to install Ubuntu to.17:42
SonikkuAmericaQuestion: Is it advisable to set up LVM? If so, is there a preference as to what kind(s) of hardware it should be used on?17:42
brian_SonikkuAmerica: Oops sorry. Didn't answer all. I have 3 drives. 1 for Ubuntu; 1 for Windoze; 1 for backups and data/docs etc.17:43
brian_SonikkuAmerica: Will my Windoze drive and relating partitions be safe. I cannot afford to loose that.17:44
SonikkuAmericabrian_: If you select the correct HDD at setup, yes.17:44
SonikkuAmericabrian_: In your case, the one with Ubuntu on it.17:44
{mikey}brian_, I've missed this conversation mostly, but if I want to make sure not to select a drive I will sometimes unplug it17:45
brian_SonikkuAmerica: That's cool. Answer to the other question - re: GRUB on the Windoze drive. Not sure, but I don't think so. How will I know. It does not show in the file system while running Ubuntu.17:46
brian_{mikey}: That sounds safe to me. Me being a novice could slip and create my own disaster.17:47
{mikey}brian_, sounds like your setup is suitable so why not, eh?17:48
SonikkuAmericabrian_: use [ sudo file -s /dev/sdX ] to figure that out. If "GRand Unified Bootloader" shows up anywhere, that's where it is.17:48
SonikkuAmericaX = a, b or c17:48

Hammerhead2011-S<genii-around> it's not just 0x0 but any screen shot using "select area to grab" that causes this error17:48
trismHammerhead2011-S: if it is any area then you should file a separate bug17:49

SonikkuAmericaYou're welcome.17:52
brian_SonikkuAmerica: Ran this command on all sda ; sdb ; sdc and does not show on either. But if I use the BIOS boot (F12) then I get the GRUB screen. Select the first line or just wait for a few seconds and Ubuntu loads. I'm a little confused now.17:53

macthank u, that worked!!18:25
cuddylierThe script is a backup script18:25
wilee-nileedusxmt, Did you add the vm = 0 to gksudo gedit /etc/sysctl.conf18:25
cuddylierCopying folders to a seperate hard drive, MonkeyDust18:25
dusxmtlol, gedit18:25
MonkeyDustcuddylier  there's watch, but what does the script look like?18:26
wilee-nileedusxmt, sorry vm.swappiness lol all you want you are the one asking for help.18:26
dusxmtwilee-nilee: I've added vm.swappiness = 0, do I need to just do vm = 0?18:26
dusxmtwilee-nilee: Ok, yes18:26
cuddylierMonkeyDust It just does things just cd to a directory and then issues commands to copy the folders in that directory over to a different directory then once done it zips the folders18:27
MonkeyDustcuddylier  are you using rsync to the copying?18:27
cuddylierWhen running in a screen before it would show what it was copying at that moment in time18:27
cuddylierMonkeyDust let me check18:28
apndusxmt: how did you verify your swappiness?  How did you check your ram usage?18:28
MonkeyDustcuddylier  better use pastebin to show us the script18:28
dusxmtapn: Vertify: `cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness`, returns 0, I vertify ram usage with a built-in ram monitor in fbpanel (A panel program I use in openbox)18:29
cuddylierMonkeyDust http://pastebin.com/iFGYvXjm18:30
MonkeyDustcuddylier  better ask in #bash, they are more skilled18:31
apndusxmt: how did you verify how much swap are you using?18:32
dusxmtapn: It says in the ram monitor, currently there's 23 megs. The reason I want it to swap only when it is critical is because this is an SSD drive, and too many writed could kill it.18:33
nabbletapn: you could for example check the usage of your swap partition18:33
sk1pperhi all, is there any equivalent of inSSIDer or Wifi Analyzer for Ubuntu?18:34
she_dyedcuddylier: id that the entire script18:34
apndusxmt: can you use htop to check it?18:35
Morph4meapn, 2 links for you ....just follow along ....First is for RAM    http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-check-memory-usage/ ...and the second for SWAP    http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-check-memory-usage/18:35

MonkeyDustcuddylier  if you ask assistance, you should give all information18:37
cuddylierWhere does Ubuntu actually run the output of it?18:37
cuddylierLike, does it just run the output nowhere?18:37
nabbletsk1pper: what do you want to do? just discover the networks and their signal strength?18:37
nabbletsk1pper: or inspect packages?18:37
apndusxmt: the only explanation for it is that some application is pushing for cache in swap space.  Firefox used to be guilty of it, as well as some other apps.  Can you close all applications of this kind and check again?18:38
cuddylierAlso, is 19 the lowest priority?18:38

Guest77817why go ?~ ubuntu20:05
mnknickles, yep - that's why it boots after all the errors in busybox finish and then i type exit20:05
she_dyedmnk so something is making it go to busybox and when you quit bb it proceeds to normal desktop20:05

AtheromaI have to move my laptop to the other room in order to get connected20:14
SolarisBoyntzrmtthihu777: if you ran it from somwehere - and then changed that said somewhere after it may be a symptom of doing that - EG if you started irssi at /home/place/there and then later in another shell removed /home/place - then irssi scripts may thrown those type of error despite things "working"20:14

soulslayermy nvidia driver is installed via the manufacture scrpit .. as far as i read the packege must be provided by nvidia-current20:17
soulslayeri guess that's the problem .. how i must proceed now ?20:17
AtheromaBut then I get disconnected and txpower return to 15dBm20:17
SolarisBoyAtheroma: interesting20:18
bekksAtheroma: Then the quality of your wifi in your room isnt that good to keep it up.20:18
she_dyedreddeath68: have any autostart scripts, have you checked if there are .xsession-errors20:18
blackstarguys I'm not crazy, it happen,   to save a file I know is :wq! as u mention previously, this happen at on a production server a mis typo :;wq! delete the lines below, Please notice i'm using colomm infron of the simcolom20:18
bekksAtheroma: btw: what wrong with 15dBm?20:19
rtshello world from laptop20:19
SolarisBoyyea i actually can't confirm ';' does anything but delimt things in vim =( i'd go with bekks suggestion or update20:19
SolarisBoy@vim stuff20:19
bekksblackstar: ; repeats a command. So you deleted something before.20:19
AtheromaYes, the wifi signal in my room is weak, but I could use it without problems on windows 720:19
reddeath68There shouldnt be any auto start scripts unless an update installed them, as for checking for errors idk how to especially since im stuck with cmd line only20:19

bekksblackstar: Then look at the keyboard when typing :)20:22
she_dyedblackstar:  or set vim to make backups20:23
AtheromaIt appears that 15dBm are not enough to detect my router when I'm in my room20:23
ntzrmtthihu777SolarisBoy: I think you may have put some of those comments at me in mistake, I have no connection issue. and you are likely correct, as I'm running irssi in screen so I can detach when needed.20:23
AtheromaI can't use my wireless with 15dBm inside my room, only when I move close to the router20:24

paradigm_arsonisI want to zero my hard disk. Is dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/harddiskdevicename sensible? Might this cause excessive wear and tear -- should I specify a block size?20:40
OerHeksreddeath68, gforce 9400 needs the 173 driver, AFAIK20:40
reddeath68ok let me try that one i think its the one i see in my list of available20:41
bekksparadigm_arsonis: Yes, specify a block size as big as the cache of your drive.20:43
paradigm_arsonisbekks: thanks, this will reduce wear and tear? also, perhaps I'm asking the wrong question20:44
Name141Does encrypting the home directory have any ill effects on preformance ?20:44
SolarisBoyName141: not a huge one -20:45
paradigm_arsonisIf you were scared that your system had been compromised and you wanted to make sure that not data remerged in new filesystems of new installations (which has happened to me before), what would you do to prevent that?20:45
paradigm_arsonisHow much will this dd command age my hard drive?20:45
Name141SolarisBoy: Ubuntu doesn't come with full hard drive encryption?20:45
SolarisBoyparadigm_arsonis: re-install20:45
SolarisBoyName141: yes it does20:45
SolarisBoyName141: LVM encryption that is - i think you can do standard drives but thats diff  than whats in the installer (GUI)20:46
bekksparadigm_arsonis: Specifying a blocksize will inhibit zillions of write cycles for every 512 bytes - it will use one write cycle for the block.20:46
paradigm_arsonisSolarisBoy: that's what oi'm doing, i'd just like to wipe my hard disk out of caution20:46
Name141SolarisBoy: Oh.  Well if it was that important, like a laptop , I'd probably ask how.. but.. since it's nearly to package selection I wont bother.20:46
paradigm_arsonisright, so it really is worth doing. i guess i'll go and look upmy hard drive specs then. thanks.20:46
reddeath68it seems to be working for now thank you20:49
reddeath68hopefully i can go a few days without breaking it this time...20:49
SolarisBoyparadigm_arsonis: you can dd the drive first and write 0's to it or use a wiping utility before the reinstallation20:49
bekksparadigm_arsonis: Or just wipe the free space.20:50
OerHeksreddeath68, have fun20:50

ubottuUbuntu 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".

tgm4883minetape, if only there was some way to do that....21:36
Betanu701takagami: I have tried 221:36
SonikkuAmericacaptine: http://ubottu.com/factoids.cgi <<< There21:37
TakagamiWeird... stock install of Ubuntu Desktop? Messed around with your groups or anything?21:37

captineSonikkuAmerica, thanks21:37
paul137how can i access shared folder from my java program21:37
TakagamiIt is most likely a permissions or groups problem... question is... if you still can't with sudo.....21:38
minetapealright, here: I was installoing wine via terminal, and i get this screen: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5702828/ Now i can't press ok and i cant get past the screen. Anyone have any ideas?21:38
SonikkuAmericaminetape: You have to hit TAB to select OK21:38
Betanu701can't with sudo or su, I even changed the owner to me21:38
bekksminetape: PRess the tab key until it hilights the OK button.21:38
minetapethanks lots21:39
TakagamiBetanu701... I am at a loss right now... doing a lot at the moment... very possibly bad card? have any problems when it is in the phone?21:39
paul137any help with shared folders out there?21:39
goosechaserBetanu701: maybe it reached the max amount of rewrites and thats why it's read only21:40
Betanu701That is the thing, no problem at all when in the phone. maybe both my adapters are bad...21:40
Betanu701goosecahser: i can write to it while it is in the phone just not through the adapter21:41
paul137i've created a shared folder on my desktop - how do I access through my other computer?21:41
TakagamiPossibly... an external card reader with a micro SD slot is a good 5$ investment... believe me...21:41
bekksBetanu701: Then your adapter is broken.21:41

ubottuareck: An explanation of what file permissions are and how they can be manipulated can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions21:43
TakagamiIn mass storage mode the phone works as an external card reader... unless you are planning to use the card in a device with a normal SD slot, you would still need a new adapter....21:44
paradigm_arsonisOkay, this livecd is barely functioning from usb-cd drive, so I'm fialing to perform the simple task of finding the cache-size of my hard drive, which is embarrassing.21:44

DayngaI am having a problem connecting to open networks, which is weird because I can connect to a network with a password. Why is this?21:45

paradigm_arsonisIs "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/harddiskdevicename" going to do a lot of damage to my hard disk?21:45
paradigm_arsonisNot the data, the disk itself?21:46
bekksparadigm_arsonis: It is documented on the vendors site, all you need to know is the make and model which can be gathered by running sudo hdparm -i /dev/sdX21:46
wilee-nileeDaynga, open networks such as?21:46
Dayngawilee-nilee: networks without a password21:46
RyanTGparadigm: it will wipe that hard disk, but shouldn't damage it.21:46
bekksparadigm_arsonis: Depends on the disk. Not setting bs=<your disk cache size> will cause <your disk cache size>/512 times more write cycles than necessary.21:47
wilee-nileeDaynga, Are you sure have you tried one that is surely open?21:47
wilee-nileelike a coffee shop....etc21:47
Dayngawilee-nilee: I've tried starbucks, best buy, mcdonalds...21:47
* genii-around hears something about coffee21:47
wilee-nileeDaynga, starbucks needs a acceptance of something I forget what though.21:48
tgm4883Daynga, define "problem connecting to open networks", is the connection not being made, or are you not able to browse the web when you are connected?21:48
wilee-nileeDaynga, I think all those have a agreement to tick.21:48
Dayngawilee-nilee: agreement to tick? what does that mean?21:49
paradigm_arsonisbekks: thanks so much, got the model, looking it up now.21:49
Dayngatgm4883:the connection isn't being made at all21:49
wilee-nileeDaynga, A psuedo code of conflict I believe21:49
paradigm_arsonisit's a samsung nc110 netbook, so it'll have a modernish hard disk, nothing from the 1960's.21:50
wilee-nileeDaynga, ask them at starbucks.21:50

wilee-nileeSonikkuAmerica, Heh are you spanking yourself. ;)22:04
BluPhenix316wow i'm really surprised you guys are helping out with 13.04, i'd figure there would be lots of people with odd problems and the only way to fix it, is to wait for a official release22:04
SonikkuAmericawilee-nilee: I am. :)22:04
wilee-nileeBluPhenix316, We are not it is in #ubuntu+122:05
SonikkuAmericaBluPhenix316: Yeah, show up in there.22:05
BluPhenix316well my problem isn't 13.04 specific, i had the problem ever since ubuntu started using lightdm, i just haven't wanted to both to change it until now22:05
BluPhenix316i'm thinking i have to compile lightdm myself and change a variable, but hoping it is something that is only in a config file22:05
evilkidso ... whats the problem here :/ ?22:07
NaGeL_Worki want to asia question: is it normal that Nvidia 525M gets 100 more FPS than an Nvidia 630M?22:08
SonikkuAmericaBluPhenix316: gdm is a good alternative if lightdm quits working... unless you're experiencing login loopback22:08
BluPhenix316no lightdm works great22:08
NaGeL_Work(optimus technology, i should mention using bumblebee)22:09
SonikkuAmericaBluPhenix316: In which you should dump your .Xauthority22:09
BluPhenix316it is just that when it loads there is that initial purple colored screen before it loads the configured wallpaper22:09
BluPhenix316and it isn't the plymouth theme22:09
SonikkuAmericaBluPhenix316: What about that purple colored screen? I think that's something to do with X22:09
tgm4883that seems like it should be changable, kubuntu doesn't have that22:10
BluPhenix316SonikkuAmerica and tgm4883: not it is lightdm22:10
BluPhenix316tgm4883: kubuntu uses kdm22:10
SonikkuAmericaBluPhenix316: No, it also uses lightdm.22:10
alsuis it possible to install munin 2 on a ubuntu 12.04 LTS machine?22:11
BluPhenix316hmm sorry last time i used it, it used kdm22:11
SonikkuAmericaBluPhenix316: Just a Qt-written version. Same with Xubuntu and Lubuntu - they use a GTK+ 2 version of lightdm.22:11
alsuand more to the point; how should I do that?22:11
an0nUbuntu 12.04.2 hangs in installation when selected upgrade options. What to do?22:11
tgm4883BluPhenix316, so it's not the lightdm theme?22:11
BluPhenix316no, i changed the background22:12
BluPhenix316but it is purple and then a few seconds later it switches to the background i've configured22:12
BluPhenix316it is only a few seconds but i couldn't figure out how to change it22:12
* BluPhenix316 is not too keen on ubuntu's purple theme22:12
SonikkuAmericawilee-nilee: The heck is munin.22:13
wilee-nileeSonikkuAmerica,  <alsu> is it possible to install munin 2 on a ubuntu 12.04 LTS machine?22:13
BluPhenix316i've got ubuntu tweak, that is how i changed the default wallpaper for lightdm but i haven't found a tool to change the color, i think it is in lightdm.conf but i'm not sure of the options22:13
SonikkuAmericawilee-nilee: Oh.22:14
wilee-nileeno idea22:14
an0nwilee-nilee: Ubuntu 12.04.2 hangs in installation when selected upgrade options. What to do?22:14
tgm4883BluPhenix316, odd, let me fire up a VM22:14
BluPhenix316an0n: try installing with out the upgrade options?22:14
BluPhenix316and then upgrade once you have the system installed22:14
an0nBluPhenix316: yes22:14
SonikkuAmericaBluPhenix316: No, it's not in lightdm.conf - at least not /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf22:14
tgm4883BluPhenix316, what version of ubuntu?22:15
BluPhenix316tgm4883: well i'm currently using 13.04, but it has been that way since i started using ubuntu with 12.0422:15
BluPhenix316i've just never bothered to try and change it until now22:15
an0nBluPhenix316: And how to install the updates, upgrades and Fluendo MP3 plugin after installation?22:15
BluPhenix316an0n: open the HUD and select Software Updates22:16
BluPhenix316just type in update and you will see it pop up22:16
BluPhenix316and you can install the mp3 codecs by using ubuntu software center, and selecting ubuntu restricted extras22:16
BluPhenix316or you can do it all from a terminal which is faster but requires a bit more computer experience22:16
an0nBluPhenix316: ok22:16
an0nBluPhenix316: thanks22:17
BluPhenix316open up a terminal and type sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras22:17
trismBluPhenix316: the color is in gsettings as is the background image: /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/com.canonical.unity-greeter.gschema.xml lists all the keys22:17
an0nBluPhenix316: ok22:17
BluPhenix316trism: thank you!22:18
an0nBluPhenix316: thanks22:18
trismBluPhenix316: ubuntu-tweak uses an override file (I think) to change the background, you could change the color using that same file in /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/22:18
BluPhenix316i started using ubuntu again because i was getting to lazy to configure everything on my own(i normally use arch) and here i go tinking under the hood again22:19

diaboliqthis is where you can disable nouvea somehow22:49
evilkiddiaboliq : nvidia-xconfig: command not found22:49
evilkid 22:49
evilkidu need to install the driver before using the "nvidia-xconfig" i guess22:49

diaboliqwell did you? evilkid22:50
evilkiddiaboliq i cant install the driver ... thats why i wana disable the NOUVEAU22:50

SuperDefenderXDoes the latest Nvidia drivers work with 13.04?22:52
diaboliqevilkid, that is why I suggest using apt-get and use nvidia-current from the repos, it will prep the kernel and possibly let you move on22:54
vrgwilee-nilee: still here?22:54
diaboliqso you might want to lxdm stop or lightdm stop22:54
vrgany idea as to how this is possible?22:54
evilkiddiaboliq : i tried that too, but : E: nvidia-current: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1022:55
vrgthe package is not installed but i can launch the program and use the program.... it doesnt make sense.....22:55
wilee-nileevrg, Not particularly I am not familiar with icecat, I use the 3rd party tool ubuntu tweak to remove configs if that is the problem.22:55
