ADzebicDoes anyone know why java programs with animation lag on my linux system? I've tried searching all over the web but can't seem to find a solution..00:25
erpoyahyaa_: The way to ask for help is to state the problem you are having as clearly as possible. If anyone knows the solution, they will respond.00:25
yahyaa_ok thanks00:26
erpoADzebic: Which program? Java applet or application? What kind of animation? Stuttering lag or smooth but delayed playback lag? Is there audio desynchronization?00:26
Tex_NickI just completed a new hardware (PC) build for my kids & grandkids ... OS is next and it will be dual boot (win xp & ubuntu 12.10)00:27
ADzebicerpo: Both give the same results00:27
erpoADzebic: Which question are you answering?00:27
Tex_NickI'm going to disable grub by setting timeout to zero, because i want to see if i can get kids & grandkids to accept Linux ... only reason for dual boot (win xp) is if I find some applications they need that won't run on wine00:27
Tex_NickI would like to have to user accounts ... one for me (Admin) and one for family (Limited Privilege) ... is there a way i can set family account up for auto-login (to bypass lightdm) unless a hotkey is pressed, which would enable lightdm for full login privilege00:27
ADzebicerpo: It's a simple bouncing ball program and it lags as a Java applet and a regular application..00:28
yahyaa_I am running Kubuntu 12.10 on a compaq presario and for some reason I can not see network connections under the wlan interface!00:28
Tex_Nickto have TWO ^00:28
ADzebicerpo: It's a stuttering type of lag. Not sure about the audio00:28
erpoADzebic: How is your CPU usage?00:29
erpoyahyaa_: Are you familiar with pastebin?00:30
erpoTex_Nick: You have a lot of questions there. Let's take them one at a time. How about virtualbox for Windows XP instead of installing it alongside ubuntu?00:30

erpoADzebic: Your CPU usage is fairly? What does that mean?00:31
ADzebicerpo: fairly low*00:31
erpoADzebic: Have you tried to view the animation on a different computer? It could just be that it's a choppy animation.00:31
ADzebicerpo: I have tried it on my windows machine and it works fine00:32
AmbreiousIuxnayeHey all, when a website tries to access my webcam or microphone, Adobe Flash player asks me to allow, or deny, but i cannot interact witht he menu at all. What do?00:32
Tex_Nickerpo : ok hey that is an option ... MAIN goal here is to NOT use Win Xp ...only question was to bypass lightdm unless a hotkey was pressed ... other info was to clarify wha i'm doing ;-)00:33
erpoAmbreiousIuxnaye: The normal way of doing things is to ask the question once and wait. If anyone knows the answer, they will say something.00:33

srini232323Hey guys. This is probably more of a vmware question than a ubuntu question, but I've been trying to get VMWare Tools to work with Ubuntu and I can't seem to get it to. I'm using VMWare Workstation 9.0.2 with Ubuntu 12.10 (kernel 3.5.0-27-generic)00:44
dr_willisi rarely see tearing when i use  vlc00:44
brute`I've been having a hell of a time on 12.04 trying to change the ulimit (file open)00:45
brute`is there an official procedure for doing this?00:45
srini232323I saw online somewhere that I had to switch from Ubuntu's unity to GNOME, which I have00:45
shapedr_willis: It's the same in VLC too btw00:45
srini232323And I've reinstalled VMWare tools a bunch of times (I do have the kernel headers installed as well)00:45
dr_willissrini232323:  for running in a vm - i tend to use Lubuntu00:45
StR34kmark2: anytime you virtualize a system, you're running it with reduced resources, since you're running it under another OS, the primary OS gets the majority of the available resources, and therefore the guest OS will be slower00:45
gottwisstmark2: If you want to run Ubuntu at all times, I would suggest you install it00:45
dr_willisshape:  check ccsm, and the drivers, and vlc settings for that vsync or whatever its called00:45
srini232323Well, I have a quad-core so I don't have any perf issues at all00:46
dr_willisshape:  vlc has filtering options i recall using ages ago on a low end netbook00:46
erposhape: The filename ends in .part. That means the file is incomplete. I would try waiting for the download to complete, or playing the movie from the disc. You do own the disc, don't you?00:46
dr_willissrini232323:  when running in a VM.. yes you can have issues00:46
StR34kAnyone here familiar with grub? I want to add a custom entry like the rescue mode....00:47
srini232323True, but my problem was getting drag and drop to work, perf is certainly lower than what it would have been under a clean install but it's not too important to me right now00:47
dr_willisStR34k:  look at /etc/grub.d/40_custom  and add one perhaps?00:47
srini232323Unless there's another reason you recommend Lubuntu to VMs00:47
srini232323*for VMs00:47
mark2ok i also downloaded ubuntu without a virtualbox that seems to run faster would that be fine00:47
shapeerpo: It doesn't btw, it's a longer name, the extension is avi. And this happens to me with all HD movies, that was just an example.00:47
dr_willissrini232323:  it uses less ram. ;) and does all the basics just fine00:48
StR34kdr_willis: Looked at that, doesn't seem to be what I want, or else I don't fully understand it....00:48
yahyaa_that looks like a site to blog or something00:48
dr_willisStR34k:  ive no idea what you want then.00:48
yahyaa_why should I go to that site?00:48
dr_willisStR34k:  its just adds extra entries to the end of the grub menu.00:48
erpoyahyaa_: Good. Now open a terminal, type ifconfig, and hit enter.00:48
erpoyahyaa_: That site is the polite way to send lots of text to other people over IRC.00:49
StR34kdr_willis: I just want to add a custom kernel parameter that will update with update-grub / grub-install and create a new entry....00:49
gottwisstmark2: Ubuntu running as an installed OS should be fine.. it should definitely have better performance than in a virtualbox.00:49
dr_willisStR34k:  custome paramaters would be in /etc/default/grub00:49
srini232323So you're saying VMWare Tools might not be working because I don't have enough RAM?00:50
dr_willisStR34k:   if you want a standard entry AND a custome entry. you will need to do some bash scripting i imagine and look at /etc/grub.d/ for examples00:50

SineTheCreatoryahyaa: run lspci again. there would be TWO network cards listed. one is ethernet, one is wireless.01:33
yahyaaoh i see it01:34
=== rafael is now known as Guest41440
SineTheCreatoryahyaa: okay. what's the chipset model for the wireless card?01:34
yahyaait is Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless Lan Controller (rev  02)01:36
SineTheCreatorahh perfect!01:36
SineTheCreatorthats the same card i have01:36
SineTheCreatorit's easy to setup01:36
MerkidemisSineTheCreator: I don't have an ipv6 address when I run ifconfig, so I am confused as to why apt-get would even bother trying01:37
SineTheCreatoryahyaa: for that broadcom card, open a terminal and run: sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer01:37
SineTheCreatoryahyaa: it will automagically download and install the correct firmware for your card. after it's done, reboot your machine to make wifi work.01:37
zykotick9Merkidemis: perhaps check for ipv6 option in /etc/apt/apt.conf?  i certainly don't remember lucid defaulting to ipv6 for apt!01:37
SineTheCreatoryahyaa: i think you and me may have the same laptop D:01:40
SineTheCreatori have exactly the same ethernet and wifi chipset01:40
Merkidemiszykotick9: odd, I don't have a /etc/apt/apt.conf file01:40
Merkidemiszykotick9: Currently when I try to run an apt-get update command I get a lot of errors like: W: Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/lucid/Release.gpg  Could not create a socket for 2001:67c:1360:8c01::18 (f=10 t=1 p=6) - socket (97 Address family not supported by protocol) [IP: 2001:67c:1360:8c01::18 80]01:41
chessmatehi all01:41
zykotick9Merkidemis: that's ok.  humm, i have no idea why apt would be using ipv6.  best of luck.  (not too much life left in lucid (less then a mounth, May 9th i believe), it was the last ubuntu i actually ran)01:41
yahyaawell that is my neighbors laptop I have a toshiba satelite01:41
SineTheCreatoryahyaa: ahh.01:41
SineTheCreatordid the firmware installer package work for you?01:42
chessmateI have a problem with the screen dim, can someone help me, please?01:42
Merkidemiszykotick9: (server is LTS until 2015, but I am not looking forward to the dist-update as those never go well for me01:42
zykotick9Merkidemis: i wouldn't be surprised if canonical's servers are perhaps ipv6 only and they forgot about lucid?01:42
SineTheCreatorMerkidemis: that is one reason i use debian for my servers. can't get much more long-term than every five years ;)01:43
MerkidemisStrange as I can ping the addresses over IPv4 just fine.01:43
zykotick9SineTheCreator: no they don't.  debian is about a 3 year on average (there have been some much longer gaps) support lifespan.01:44
SineTheCreatorzykotick9: i know. my virtual machine provider doesn't offer LTS for some reason. that's another reason :D01:44
SineTheCreatorthey only offer ubuntu 10.x and 11.x01:45
SineTheCreatorone thing though, debian does at least keep packages for older versions in the archive repos01:45
SineTheCreatorubuntu does not in my experience01:45
tgm4883Merkidemis, are you using apt-cacher or squid deb proxy?01:46
yahyaasinethecreator you are the bomb!!!01:47
yahyaathanx it worked01:48
Carlos30Hi, one question, if I install the beta 2 of ubuntu 13.04, when the final version leave should i reinstalling or upgrading would not be necessary to reinstall it?01:48
zykotick9!final | Carlos3001:48
ubottuCarlos30: If you install a development version of Ubuntu Raring and keep up with package updates, then you will be upgraded to the official release of 13.04 when it comes out. To make sure, type « sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade » in a terminal.01:48
SineTheCreatoryahyaa: sure. give linux a proper shot, you'll find that there's nothing it doesn't do as well as windows. except gaming. and music, photo, and video production ;)01:49
SineTheCreatorbut yeah for everything else it's great01:49
Carlos30thank you zykotick9 && ubottu01:49
yahyaaok I do have one more issue01:49
SineTheCreatorCarlos30: ubottu is a chatbot ;)01:50
yahyaaI have the HP OfficeJet 660001:50
SineTheCreatoryahyaa: okay. usb or networked?01:50
coinheadhello, my ralink 3290 wireless doesnt work, it is llisted by lspci and lshw, module rt3562sta is loaded but ifconfig or iwconfig doesnt show the device. what can i do?01:50
Carlos30i know SineTheCreator , but it helps me :P01:50
SineTheCreatoryahyaa: okay. go to system tools -> printers01:50
yahyaai got the printer to print, but I can not get the scanner to be recognized by simple scan01:51
Merkidemistgm4883: I don't know what either of those are, so I doubt it.01:51
SineTheCreatoryahyaa: in that case i have no idea. mine 'just works'01:52
recurryso I want to make a bootable encrypted usb running ubuntu01:53
recurryI'm following these instructions01:53
recurry..but it says I'm going to lose all my data01:53
recurryI'm confused01:54
yahyaawhat app are u using to scan01:54
recurryI don't  understand?01:54
SineTheCreatoryahyaa: install the 'hplip' package if it is not already01:54
SineTheCreatorapparently that should help01:54
SineTheCreatoralso i never scan with mine01:54
yahyaahow do I do that01:55
yahyaaremember I am new to linux01:55
SineTheCreatoryahyaa: open terminal. sudo apt-get install hplip01:55
yahyaathats it ok01:55
dr_willisrecurry:  backups are always a good idea...01:55
recurrybetter learn to do that first, but I don't understand how it is possible to make an encrypted booting usb01:55
dr_willisrecurry:  ive never really tried.. or worried about it01:56
yahyaait seems that it is already installed01:56
recurrybut are you a linux wizard?01:56
yahyaabut y cant I get it to work01:56
SineTheCreatoryahyaa: once that package is installed, delete the printer in system settings -> printers and reinstall it. this time select HPLIP as the print driver.01:56
yahyaaok let me try that01:57
dr_willisrecurry:  been using linux for years.. i havent the need for encrypted home/dirs/devices01:57
recurryhave you ever had you laptop stolen?01:58
recurryI had accounts stolen off my stolen computer01:58
guangi have no /proc/net/wireless.01:58
SineTheCreatorrecurry: you can use luks and luksOpen to encrypt a usb drive i believe01:58
recurrybut will it boot?01:58
guangi try to install wireless tools,but even i have installed it,it sill has no /proc/net/wireless01:59
SineTheCreatorrecurry: ahh. in that case i have absolutely no idea. you may need to have a separate partition on the stick.01:59
zykotick9dr_willis: encyrpted filesystems: required by 0.001% of people, used by much more ;)01:59
SineTheCreatori keep all my really important stuff on an encrypted network drive01:59
SineTheCreatorthat way even if someone steals my home linux server they cant access the real stuff without my key02:00
recurryI had the fucking police reading my private journals02:00
dr_willisi keep mine  on a post-it-note on the wall.02:00
recurryreally pissed off02:00
recurrythis time I'm going to keep my shit encrypted02:00
shapedr_willis: I've just tried everything in various  online tutorial ccsm, vsync is enabled, etc. I even tried some old drivers just now and I still get tearing. :( It used to work about a year ago, I had no tearing. What am I left to do, driver hop?02:01
SineTheCreatorrecurry: if you really want to do that i recommend installing a full install of ubuntu and creating a separate partition you can use for your docs02:01
SineTheCreatoralternatively, you can simply set /home to be encrypted.02:01
SineTheCreatori believe it will not decrypt until your password is entered at login02:01
recurryhmm just /home?02:01
SineTheCreatorrecurry: there ARE ways to encrypt / (root) but it's quite difficult to make it boot unless you have a partition or drive for /boot to 'kick it off' so to speak02:02
SineTheCreatorwhen the system is booted the kernel has to look for the key02:02
SineTheCreatorgetting that to work when the key is INSIDE your encrypted root partition is quite difficult. but possible.02:02
SineTheCreatorunfortunately i don't know how to do it02:03
SineTheCreatori always just went with easymode. encrypted /documents partition :D02:03
dr_willisshape:  ive never found drivers to be the issue.02:04
SineTheCreatorsure. sorry i couldnt be more help02:04
yahyaai could not find the hplp driver02:04
shapedr_willis: so then with that options am I left with :(02:04
dr_willisshape:  try xbmc and the xbmc session. ;)02:05
dr_willisshape:  all ive ever had to do when using vlc was enable that v-sync in ccsm. and perhaps enable a filter on vlc.02:05
RyuGunsI was following the rust-lang tutorial and I typed "curl -0 http://static.rust-lang.org/dist/rust-0.6.tar.gz" into the terminal, then it just started spitting out random characters so I panicked and pressed Control+Z.02:05
RyuGunsCould someone explain what it was doing?02:05
dr_willisRyuGuns:  ctrl-c 'stops02:06
dr_willisRyuGuns:  ctrl-z sends to background. ;02:06
dr_willisRyuGuns:  it downloaded the file to the stdout  sounds like02:07
trismRyuGuns: it's an -O not a -002:07
RyuGunsOn the website it looked like -0, thanks a lot!02:07
dr_willis0o0  <-- a fish. ;)02:07
zykotick9RyuGuns: you might want to try "fg" and see if it's still running02:07
dr_willisgotta love font mixxups02:07
RyuGunsYeah, it was still running, thanks people.02:08
shapedr_willis: btw, I am running Xubuntu, and Xubuntu doesn't use compiz, would that make it more a Graphics card Issue?02:09
zykotick9shape: actually, i believe it's possible to run compiz in xfce as well.  yes, xubuntu/xfce doesn't by default.02:10
dr_willisshape:   hard to tell.  I rarely have tearing issues.. but i tend to watch anime/non hd videos02:10
keithclark_I just installed Ubuntu on a new home built machine but it just boots to a purple screen.  Nothing else.   Ideas?02:11
shapezykotick9: I am trying to fix HD video tearing and it's driving me nuts, already tried 6 nvidia drivers and I have tried enabling and disabling sync to Vblank, etc.02:11
shapedr_willis: np, I'll see what I can find to fix this :)02:12
lotus-bladeis there an easy way to tell what version of ubuntu i have?02:13
zykotick9shape: honestly, i've always had tearing in Xorg :(  numberous nvidia (and some intel) gpus.  swithcing from dual monitors (of different resolution) to a single monitor helped a lot, but i still see some.  screen tearing is one of the arguments for the replacing of xorg.  good luck.02:13
jrib!version | lotus-blade02:13
ubottulotus-blade: To find out what version of Ubuntu you have, type « lsb_release -a » in a !shell - To know the available version of a package, « apt-cache policy <package> »02:13
shapezykotick9: I'm only on 1 monitor tho :(02:14
keithclark_maybe this is a uefi problem that is not possible to install ubuntu on?02:14
shapezykotick9: and replace it with what?02:14
jackwwhen 13.04 is going to arrive?02:14
jackwCan't wait for it02:14
zykotick9shape: well, ubuntu is going to something there creating in-house called Mir.  the rest of the gnu/linux community seems to be going to something called wayland.02:15
hrolfHey, is there anyway that I can log, all those commands that are run/executed in a terminal?02:16
hrolfWith its time?02:16
keithclark_Anyone see me?02:16
hrolfI mean start time02:16
zykotick9keithclark_: no02:16
beanhrolf, check out snoopy02:16
keithclark_whew, I thought I was invisible02:17
nurowback in the day, I remember there was an application I used for palm ecognition on my click pad, and overall better functionality. anyone know what that might be?02:17
shapezykotick9: It seems wayland has been released since 2008, so I could change to it correct?02:18
dr_willisshape:  if wayland was in any way actually useable... ;)02:19
zykotick9shape: i'd recommend against trying to change away from Xorg.  More hastle then it's probably worth!02:19
dr_willisshape:  last i looked into wayland.. it was not in a state that normal people could use it02:19
shapedr_willis: yeah it seems so. Check my pm btw!02:19
keithclark_Anyone could help with a new uefi install?02:20
dr_willisi rarely even see pm messages ;)02:20
seekanethey all02:20
dr_willisjust how my clients/znc are setup02:20
seekanetSource: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick  - Does this mean just put the iso on theUSB, or extract the files within the iso on theUSB stick?02:20
seekanetNEvermind that! I didnt read itall02:21
dr_willisseekanet:  you IMAGE the iso onto a stick using a special tool normally02:21
dr_willisseekanet:  or use a special tool to put the files on the stick and make it bootable.02:21
seekanetYes dr_willis  that was totally my fault I did not read. I shouldnt' dothat02:21
tazaI want to install Ubuntu and wipe a device's partition table. However, I *know* for a fact that said device's hard drive has bad blocks.02:21
tazaWhat should I do?02:21
recurryseekanet, you can't install ubuntu onto the usb from the same usb02:22
dr_willistaza:  prepare for hd failure in the near future?02:22
tazadr_willis: Mostly I want Ubuntu to not try to use said blocks02:23
keithclark_Is uefi just not installable?02:23
tazaThe system is only for internet use anyway.02:23
shapedr_willis: check pm again! :)02:23
RyuGunsHai DangerOnTheRangr, long time no see.02:24
DangerOnTheRangrHiya :)02:24
RyuGunsHow is everyone in PAnda?02:25
DangerOnTheRangrPretty good, though I haven't had time to idle there for a while, unfortunately02:25
keithclark_So is new hardware just not >Ubuntu friendly?02:26
RyuGunsDangerOnTheRangr: How is that game you were working on?02:26
tazadr_willis: I have a list of said bad blocks generated by badblocks, I just need to know how to keep the Ubuntu Installer from trying to use them.02:26
dr_williskeithclark_:  depends on the hardware.. Alienware now sales ubuntu-prenstalled pcs from what ive seen02:26
keithclark_dr_willis, yeah, it seems that affordable hardware is no longer Ubuntu friendly.02:27
dr_willistaza:  if they are all in one group/area - ive made partions that include the bad areas. and just make sure to not use that ares02:27
DangerOnTheRangrRyuGuns: It's coming along pretty well, but studies and stuff are taking up a lot of my time02:27
keithclark_dr_willis, Windows bound I guess02:27
RyuGunsDangerOnTheRangr: :( Alright, hope you have progress with that.02:27
DangerOnTheRangrThanks :)02:27
dr_williskeithclark_:  my $35 raspberry pi is affordable and linux friendly. ;)02:27
tazaOkay, asking generally: I have a list of bad blocks generated by badblocks. Any way to tell the Ubuntu installer about them to avoid using them?02:27
keithclark_dr_willis, yup...not for gaming though02:28
tazaGood luck getting a $35 Raspberry Pi, or to get Linux running on it.02:28
taza... Linux? Ubuntu.02:28
keithclark_dr_willis, I guess Linux is bound for pi type of hardware?02:28
RageRiothi folks, I've just tried to install ubuntu but after reboot windows loaded. during the installation I was sure I chose the correct drive which contained the boot loader. I used a tool called boot repair to generate a report. http://paste.ubuntu.com/5706595/02:28
dr_willistaza:  :) i got 2 of them/.02:28
tazadr_willis: $65 where I am, and haven't even seen how to make Ubuntu run on it02:29
dr_willisMy 2 yr old system does windows games decently well.  on linux and windows.  but i guess its the game02:29
dr_willistaza:  use rasbian. ubuntu arm dosent support the pis arm chip.02:29
dr_willistaza:  theres dozens of othe mini-arm gizmos out there also . if you dont have to hae a pi. ;)02:30
tazadr_willis: Raspberry Pi prices: $65 for one, $100 for 2.02:30
guangwhy i run command "iwconfig",all four interface shows no wireless extension?02:30
dr_willistaza:  you should be able to order them direct from england for less. ;)02:31
tazadr_willis: Those are the website prices.02:31
tazaWell, dunno about the one copy 'cuz they don't show that to people who haven't logged in02:31
* zykotick9 wishes raspberry pi's ran on all free/open driver/hardware... but they don't...02:32
keithclark_I guess the days of homemade pc's are over now for Linux.02:32
tazaMe too. The Raspberry Pi makes a decent server, but the installing is so difficult and the binary blobs make security doubtful.02:32
dr_willisits being worked on i hear zykotick9 .. but who knows. the thing has only been out for like a year.02:32
dr_williskeithclark_:  i homemake mine all the time for linux.. im not sure what you are going on about02:32
keithclark_dr_willis, uefi02:33
RageRiotI was just going to say the same thing.02:33
dr_willisUEFI can work in linux02:33
keithclark_dr_willis, Will not allow Linux to run02:33
Morph4mekeithclarke:  uefi  is supported in the linux kernel ....ubuntu 12.1002:33
Morph4mei have it running in this machine02:33
RageRiotI'm pretty sure manufactureres would get a shock when their hardware sales drop from linux users not making systems02:33
tazaI trust Broadcom to not try to overtake my Pi, but I don't trust their binary blobs are secure enough.02:33
dr_willisseems like a good read on the topic. ;)02:34
RageRiotcould my boot problem be due to UEFI? I'm running win 7 from an SSD, I just installed ubuntu but it booted to windows after installe02:35
* zykotick9 use to think uefi was a bad thing - the uefi talk at libreplanet 2013 (video NOT online yet) changed his mind.02:35
keithclark_This uefi is a nightmare02:35
dr_willisinstalled it where?02:35
RageRiota seperate HDD02:35
Morph4meif windows is installed using the uefi then ubuntu has to be installed using uefi02:35
tazaI have a list of bad blocks generated by badblocks. Any way to tell the Ubuntu installer about them to avoid using them?02:36
RageRiotdoes win7 even suppor UEFI ?02:36
dr_willisRageRiot:  issue could be that 'secure boot' stuff.. but i dont know about it02:36
dr_willis 64-bit Windows Vista (SP1+), Windows 7 and Windows 8 versions support booting using UEFI firmware.02:37
RageRiotUEFI is still new to me. I reclll installing windows 7 the same way I always do.02:37
zykotick9taza: i think that's the drive's bios' job.  i doubt there is a way to tell the install about them (i also doubt there "should" be).02:37
Morph4mekeithclarke not really just read your manual and set your bios accordingly02:37
keithclark_dr_willis, secure boot does not have an effect either.  Tried to turn it off02:37
keithclark_Morph4me, read the manual and applied.  Still no go02:37
dr_willisunplug the windows hd .. and see  if it boots.. :)02:37
dr_willisOne way to trouble shoot.02:38
dr_willisbe sort of silly if all this time it was due to bios not wanting to boot the hd.. and that was the issue02:38
dr_willisor however uefi sets that boot item02:38
RageRiotyeh, secure boot is diabled. I read that this secure UEFI is only a worry when windows 8 onwards..02:38
wcchandlerwin7 supports uefi02:38
RageRiotby default ?02:39
wcchandlerpretty much02:39
wcchandlerdepends on how you boot the windows installer.02:39
Morph4me keithclark , what mobo do you have in your system ?02:39
keithclark_Morph4me, Asus F2A55-M02:40
wcchandlerthen it'll install it the uefi partition if it can...  which is the disappointing part of linux..  not of the big dogs seem to do it as intuitively as that.02:40
Morph4meuefi works great cuts the boot time way down02:40
ivotklHello everyone. =)02:40
wilee-nileeRageRiot, I would use the ubuntu forums make a thread and post the bootinfo summary.02:40
Morph4mekeithclark ty02:40
zykotick9Morph4me: boot time is not the advantage of uefi, security is02:41
Morph4meyes that too02:41
wcchandlerit also maps devices better and correctly, and more... logically.02:41
Morph4meadded perk02:41
keithclark_zykotick9, only if you can actually boot02:41
wcchandlersecurity is not an advantage to uefi.  that really wasn't part of the initial protocol.  it was to be a replacement for bios, then people saw the perks of adding security features.02:42
zykotick9wcchandler: i'm pretty sure "signed boot" is fairly fundamental element to uefi, and that's the security i'm refering too02:43
RageRiotjust to get my head around Somthing, during the ubuntu installer appart from selecting the drive to install ubuntu too. Do I select the boot loader drive or the boot loader partition( the part that windows boots from)02:43
Pinkamena_DHello, I just tried to install the ati driver with this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52JRCddtZLk It ended up saying on the second to last step "could not find compatable adapter"02:43
Morph4mekeithclark if you haven't looked at this you might want to check this out      https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI02:44
wcchandlerzykotick9: signed boot wasn't part of the original RFC for uefi02:44
Pinkamena_DNow, after a restart, I am left with a darker color screen and sluggish-er graphics02:44
RageRiotI'l look at that as well. :)02:44
keithclark_Morph4me, Yep, no luck02:44
Pinkamena_DAll of the commands he did in the video are in the description02:44
Pinkamena_DDoes anyone know how to reverse them?'02:44
keithclark_Morph4me, still boots to purple screen02:44
Morph4mekeithclark are you dual booting win7 on that machine ?02:45

Guest70591i cant update my OS02:48
wilee-nileeGuest70591, Not supported here you need #pinguyOS02:48
ivotklGuest70591, What's wrong exactly?02:48
Morph4mekeithclark your manual will tell you how to enable it ...if however you have win 7 in legacy mode set... know this that when uefi is then set windows will not boot02:48
ivotklOh, he/she had Pinguy...02:48
ivotkl*Oh, he/she has Pinguy...02:48
keithclark_Morph4me, no windows.  Raw system02:49
zykotick9wcchandler: really? that surprises me - thanks.02:50
Morph4mewell if your mobo has the capability of uefi it's just a matter of enabling it ....on this asus z77 board it's rather simple02:51
Guest70591Could not download all repository indexes02:53
keithclark_Everything we try is just purple screen.02:53
keithclark_I'm going to assume that Ubuntu is just not compatible with new hardware anymore.02:53
Guest70591it is normal ?02:54
dr_williskeithclark_:  that assumption is incorrect.02:54
dr_willisyou said you installed.. so it aparently did boot and ran..02:55
keithclark_dr_willis, nope, just installed.  Not running02:55
=== puff` is now known as puff
dr_willisYou used the live-cd-desktop to install? if so - it did run02:55
Morph4mekeithclark in your manual if you have it look under section 2.7 you will see the boot tab02:55
dr_willisit could be as trivial as grub is on the wrong hd..02:56
keithclark_dr_willis, yes, live CD ran.  Install did not02:56
Morph4meclick csm on the list and set uefi to auto02:56
dr_willisif you have 2 hds/. i would try unplugging all but the linux hd.02:56
Morph4meleave secure boot to standard on the next screen it shows you from there02:56
Morph4meit's the same bios screen as mine02:57
Morph4meof course make sure you download the 64bit version of the ubuntu 12.10 os02:57
keithclark_Lost here, what to try next?02:57
Morph4meyou have your manual ?02:58
keithclark_What manual?02:58
shapedr_willis: you here?02:58
Morph4meof the mobo02:58
keithclark_Yes, Windows oriented02:58
shapedr_willis: I fixed the tearing! what I did was add under Section "Screen":02:58
keithclark_No Linux info02:58
shapedr_willis Option         "TripleBuffer" "True" and then run sudo nvidia-xconfig --no-composite02:59
Morph4mei know im talking about your bios settings02:59

zykotick9shape: nice!02:59
Morph4mesection 2.7 shows the boot tab in your bios02:59
shapezykotick9: ROFL! was just writing to you02:59
dr_willisshape:  i think vlc also has some extra-buffers filters03:00
shapedr_willis: zykotick9: it still tears very little but it's watchable now :)03:00
shapedr_willis: what do you mean, what about those?03:00
dr_willisshape:  ive used them  to get rid of tearing on my netbook.03:00

dsl1159hie pedro_03:01
keithclark_So give up for me?  Just Windows?03:01
keithclark_Seems like Linux has a major new problem with uefi!03:02
=== dsl1159 is now known as perl1994
dr_williskeithclark_:  more likely its either an issue with your specific hardware.. or you just dont hae a setting correct./03:02
Morph4meok so i see where this is going ...stepping out of it ...goodluck keithclark  ...your maunal has the info and you just have to read it for it to work03:02
thoonaidoes it sounds normal that the debian (6.0.7) installer can't detect ubuntu luks crypted disks?03:03
dr_willisbut it seems you want to argure more then listen. good luck03:03
keithclark_Morph4me, I've read the manual03:03
Morph4medr.willis amen03:03
shapedr_willis: hmm I don't seem to find them, extra buffer you say?03:03
wilee-nileekeithclark_, Problem is the boot, the setups are different per manufacturers.03:03
=== perl1994 is now known as tinycore
dr_willisshape:  im on windows right now. i recall vlc having some advanced option. and showing of diffent filters03:03
shapedr_willis: yup I was looking through them but nothing extra buffer related03:04
shapedr_willis: wait let me print screen for you03:04
dr_willisvlc -> tools -> preferances  CHeck the 'all' button.03:04
keithclark_wilee-nilee, maybe but I don't seem to be able to find the solution.  Just purple screen03:04
shapedr_willis: yup already did that03:04
lumbertI have, what I assume, is a basic question. I'm trying to browse the contents of a CD in my CDROM. I've gone to /media/cdrom and run "ls -a" and "ls -l" but nothing is there regardless of what cd I put in the cdrom. the /media directory only has cdrom, no cdrom1/2/3/etc.  Anyone have any ideas? I know the cdrom works because I installed the OS using it.03:04
=== jack is now known as Guest61738
wilee-nileekeithclark_, Use the ubuntu forums, there are daily users there focusing on uefi.03:05
dr_willisshape:  i see motion blur.. but not sure what else i played with. ;)_ theres a lot of fun filters03:05
keithclark_wilee-nilee, yeah, probably easier for my Son to just buy Windows.03:06
shapedr_willis: yeah, that's the only one close I guess03:06
keithclark_uefi is the death of Linux03:07

keithclark_dr_willis, well I have perfectly good hardware here with uefi the will not allow Linux to install.03:09
dr_williskeithclark_:  you havent really shown us that you have tried  most of the suggestions we have given..03:09
dr_willisyou said it DID install. but is not booting the install.. 2 very differnt things03:10
thoonaidr_willis: my asus e45 board with freeDOS uefi doesnt want to boot linux either (except ubuntu live sticks < 11.04)03:10
keithclark_dr_willis, What do you require as proof?03:10
dr_willisone bit of hardware having isues does not prove that uefi is the death of linux.03:10
thoonaidr_willis, keithclark_ we should ,move over to #offtopic and let the support been done here03:10

keithclark_thoonai, help then?  Whatever it takes to get Ubuntu installed on an uefi machine03:13
thoonaikeithclark_: sure ^^03:13
SonikkuAmerican-iCe: What kind of laptop is this?03:13
linux_pinguydebian ubuntu is the best distro base03:13
thoonaikeithclark_: no support is ok too, but FUD and ranting belong to #offtopic03:14
thoonaikeithclark_: do you have a legacy bios mode?03:14
keithclark_thoonai, ok so I assume that uefi installs are offtopic now<?03:14
thoonaikeithclark_: m(03:14
dr_willisagain with the sillyness..03:14
IdleOnekeithclark_: ask a specific question, moaning about stuff and not stating what you have tried or what errors you are getting is offtopic.03:15
keithclark_IdleOne, When a fresh install boots to just a purple screen, what to do?03:15
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter03:15
keithclark_IdleOne, No errors03:15
thoonaitry tty103:16
IdleOnekeithclark_: I didn't say to direct all your questions at me.03:16
dr_willisYou can also set it to boot to text mode keithclark_  and see if any messages/consoles work03:16
ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode03:16
IdleOnesee the nomodeset info ubottu just gave03:16
Morph4mesmell a troll ..trust me if he read the mobo  manual UEFI enabling is no issue ....section 2.7 ,but he has been told that03:16
dr_willisbut.. you said it wasent booting.. if you see the plymouth/aniation.. it has booted..03:17
zykotick9n-iCe: install lm-sensors, and from a terminal type "sensors" do you see cpu/mb temps?  do you see fan speeds?03:17
keithclark_Morph4me, I did this stuff from 2.703:18
thoonaisomeone using debian and ubuntu?03:18

thoonain-iCe: this is about 20 degrees to hot03:20
leptonethx thoonai as well03:20
shapezykotick9: Upon further research I've been reading that it's actually the XFCE4 compositing manager that is causing the problem. If I install ubuntu net install with openbox only do you think this problem will be solved?03:20
dr_willisshape:  or just 'sudo apt-get install openbox' and select it at the login screen....03:21
dr_willisshape:  or use any of the DOZEN other window managers out there. ;)03:21
n-iCezykotick9: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5706670/03:21
zykotick9shape: well, openbox IS a windows manager, which replaces compiz 100%.  but for your specific case?  i have no real idea.03:21
shapedr_willis: yup, i3 and awesome are good too, etc.03:21
dr_willisshape:  xbmc even adds its own 'xbmc' session to give you a videoplyer desktp03:21
dr_willisI dont find awsome very awsome. ;)03:21
shapedr_willis: oh i see, I'll try that and see then, much easier :)03:22
dr_willisshape:  if you are big into videos. you may want to check out xbmc and that xbmc session03:22
shapedr_willis: yeah definitely, installing it now03:22
n-iCezykotick9: what do you think?03:23
dr_willisnight all03:24

zykotick9SpazTrooper: ask your question - all on one line03:25
keithclark_As a side note, Ubuntu needs to find a solution to this 'uefi install' problem.  I have no choice but to go and buy Windows now because of this issue.  I'm sure I'm not alone.03:25
nightdemon666whats up spaztrooper?03:25
moppersit does intall on UEFI, what';s the problem?03:26
keithclark_moppers, purple screen on bootup03:26
SpazTrooperI am trying to boot windows 7 via USB. I am running Lubuntu on this computer. I have the .iso and I took instructions from the forums using Gparted but I keep getting "BOOTMGR missing"03:27
nightdemon666keithclark, are you sure that uefi isnt configurable to allow ubuntu install??? ive read many article explaining how to accomplish it successfully03:27
SpazTrooperWhat did I do wrong?03:27
keithclark_nightdemon666, on or off, same result. Purple screen03:27
mopperskeithclark_, do you have the logos at the bottom?03:27
keithclark_moppers, nope03:28
mopperskeithclark_, 64 bit?03:28
SpazTrooper*I am trying to boot Win7 on another PC from my Lubuntu03:28
keithclark_moppers, yup03:28
IdleOnekeithclark_: if you are seeing the purple screen then Ubuntu is installed. the problem is not uefi it is your graphics drivers and you have not bothered to tell us what graphics card you have or tried the !nomodeset that was suggested.03:28
wilee-nileeSpazTrooper, How did you load the usb?03:28
keithclark_IdleOne, how to try the nomodeset?03:29
IdleOne!nomodeset | keithclark_03:29
ubottukeithclark_: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter03:29
SpazTrooperI used Gparted and formatted the USB to NTSF03:29
SpazTrooperThen Copy and pasted the .iso on the formatted USB03:29
IdleOne!usb | SpazTrooper03:29
ubottuSpazTrooper: For information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent03:29
nightdemon666hmm, spaztrooper... i remember booting win7 from a flashdrive before. i used a tool from a web site that described how to install win7 from an image that you would have already had the licence for.. i'll look it up now03:29
wilee-nileeSpazTrooper, All gparted does is make partitions, how did you get W7 on the usb, I assume that is waht you have done.03:30
thoonaihelp! debian doesnt recognize ubuntu crypted hdds - the ubuntu way of os sucks03:30
SpazTrooperAll I did was take the .Win7 .iso and paste it in the NTSF USB03:30
IdleOnethoonai: ask #debian for debian support03:31
moppersi dont know of any tool to make a bootable win7 usb from within linux - the microsoft one doesnt run. and n you cannot copy/paste the win7 iso03:31
thoonaiIdleOne: I crypted the disks with #ubuntu ^^03:31
keithclark_IdleOne, which file to modify?  I see a lot of info but not the basics03:31
lucasdeabreuSpazTrooper, unzip it before and put on usb03:31
IdleOnethoonai: but you are having a problem with debian03:31
wilee-nileemoppers, Easily done.03:31
SpazTrooperYes I did03:31
IdleOnekeithclark_: read the wiki it tells you03:31
nightdemon666spaztrooper, what i did was use the  Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool in provided in this url link http://www.pcworld.com/article/248995/how_to_install_windows_7_without_the_disc.html. i suggest trying it to see if it works for you. it worked for me like a charm :)03:32
keithclark_IdleOne, what wiki?03:32
IdleOne!nomodeset > keithclark_03:32
ubottukeithclark_, please see my private message03:32
SpazTrooperOk thank you. I will try it and see if it works03:32
mopperswilee-nilee, if you have info on making a bootable/installable win7 USB from an ISO in Linux, I'd be interested03:32
lucasdeabreuSpazTrooper, bootsect /nt60 I03:32
thoonaiIdleOne: true, but #debian just ignores their 'special' installer ;)03:32
lucasdeabreuSpazTrooper, make ufb bootable03:33
keithclark_IdleOne, but you PM points to the same page.03:33
SpazTrooperIT twas bootable03:33
IdleOnekeithclark_: the answer is on that page03:33
mopperswilee-nilee, i have tried DD'ing the iso03:33
SpazTrooperThe flag was set to boot03:33
keithclark_IdleOne, Holy cow, I'm a simple guy here.03:33
lucasdeabreuu need faith soo03:33
jmaccOla :)03:33
IdleOnekeithclark_: there is no "magic" button. you're going to have to read some and learn a little.03:34
wilee-nileemoppers, Ntfs partition with a boot flag, extract it with archive manager to the partition.03:34
nightdemon666ah crap.. i missed the point of you doingit on lubuntu huh spaztrooper :( well, i suppose you could always do it from a VM running windows... for eample virtual box03:34
keithclark_IdleOne, I did and understand zero here.....what you have to be a techie to get Linux to work now with uefi?03:34
mopperswilee-nilee, have you tested that?03:34
keithclark_(sorry, very frustrated)03:35
wilee-nileemoppers, Many times works with W8 as well.03:35
SpazTrooperWhat does me being on Lubuntu do with it?03:35
IdleOnekeithclark_: last time, your problem is not uefi. your problem if I may be blunt is you.03:35
nightdemon666lol, keithclark, my magic 8 ball points to "yes" you have to be a techie to get anything working in linux :P03:35
keithclark_IdleOne, ok, thanks\03:35
SpazTrooperIm running on a netbook...03:36
keithclark_nightdemon666, I see that\03:36
lucasdeabreukeithclark_, what's ur problem?03:36
mopperswilee-nilee, ok, looking at it03:36
wilee-nileeSpazTrooper, Your best with generating a bootinfo summary from the bootrepair tool to see what is where, then using a recovery or install W7 disc to fix it.03:36
thoonainightdemon666: so my granny is a techie o.O03:36
* thoonai is not sure about this03:36
mopperswilee-nilee, how ar you installing the boot loader though?03:36
SpazTrooperOk, Im on a netbook. No CD drive or anything.03:36
nightdemon666spaztrooper, i realized that you said you were runninglubuntu, and werent tryingot get the win7 iso image to boot using a window os, but instead from the lubuntu os? true?03:36
wilee-nileemoppers, YOu don't have to the bootflag triggers the extract to boot.03:37
mopperswilee-nilee, marking it as boot flag in gparted etc, copy the files - you still need a boot loader, surely?03:37
xzcvczxSpazTrooper: go to nearest electronics store, buy a usb cd drive, do what you need to, return drive saying it wasn't compatible03:37
Cache_MoneyHow would I be able to tell whether a specific cronjob is running?03:37
wickedpuppykeithclark_: try this section --> "How to temporarily set kernel boot options on an installed OS (not wubi)". See if it works03:37
mopperswilee-nilee, ok building an ISO03:37
SpazTrooperYes, I need to make the bootable USB from my lubuntu to put on another netbook that will run the Win703:37
xzcvczxCache_Money: you can set it up to log, check the logs or if its currently running ps aux03:37
Cache_Moneyxzcvczx: It's currently running and I'd like to stop it and make a few changes (as the script will run for almost 6 hours)03:38
InfinixWhy does my screen flicker when I run wine. I use Intel graphic card03:38
nightdemon666OR..... just simply run a windows image in virtualbox on your lubuntu install. run that tool i showed you in the link i provided (http://www.pcworld.com/article/248995/how_to_install_windows_7_without_the_disc.html) and install your win7 image to flash drive that way... yeah yeah, i know, its not fully dependent on lunix, yeah yeah i know its a long way about getting it to work, but its a way :P03:38
xzcvczxCache_Money: then killall <name> or kill <process id03:39
keithclark_IdleOne, your answer is for WUBI03:39
thoonaiInfinix: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVpOyKCNZYw03:39
thoonaidoes killall * works?03:40
xzcvczx no03:40
Cache_Moneyxzcvczx: is this the right pid?  root       723  0.0  0.1  19104   992 ?        Ss    2012   1:27 cron03:40
Cache_MoneyOr is that a system cron?03:40
xzcvczxCache_Money: thats the cron deamon, you need to look for what the cron script runs03:41
nightdemon666truely SpazTrooper, useing windows to perform some things is acceptable, you are after all attempting to accomplish a task that involves windows software, so let windows handle that job... thats the way i see it. as linus torvalds says, "use the best tool for the job" :)03:41
Cache_Moneyxzcvczx: I dont' see the file name/path when I run $ ps -ef03:41
xzcvczxnightdemon666: wow a torvalds quote that doesn't contain swearin03:41
xzcvczxCache_Money: are you sure its running then?03:41
xzcvczxcron is designed for jobs that run every x time periods then quit and are started again at the next time period03:42
nightdemon666lol, thats funny, i dont actually recall torvals quotes with swearing but funny that he does.. i have watched some of his videos, and such dry humor he has, but i dont remember swearing... im sure he does like the rest of us lol03:42
Cache_Moneyxzcvczx: maybe I didn't set it up properly.  How do I set up the cron to log?03:42
xzcvczxCache_Money: there is plenty of documentation available on the google for that03:43
nightdemon666um, "man cron" thats what i would do...03:44
InfinixUmm how does that help me fix my problem. There is only an Intel graphic card on my laptop.03:44
xzcvczxInfinix: what are you trying ot run in wine?03:45
nightdemon666infinix, sounds like a driver issue :/03:45
DarthExpeditorAnyone here use NetBean and Zend?03:45
nightdemon666graphics driver03:45
nightdemon666cant say that ive heard of those DarthExpeditor03:45
DarthExpeditorNetBeans is an IDE for development and Zend is a framework for PHP development.03:46
xzcvczxDarthExpeditor: are you sure this is the best place to ask and not on help site for zend or netbeans?03:46
DarthExpeditorIts all good. They have a room but no one is talking right now.03:46
InfinixSo basically Intel graphic card driver keeps switching back to Vesa huh?03:46
xzcvczxthat doesn't make this the right place to ask03:46
nightdemon666anyone else think that by tomorrow an update for Firefox 20000000000.1.0 will be popping up on your screen???03:47

Scotch`Slugworthhmm, is it possible to do a install of ubuntu/kubuntu and tell it /not/ to format the partition?04:23
Scotch`SlugworthI would like to do a inplace install (move the old /home to /hombk). I just do not want to spend the time to pull /home from backup (its 600GB+)04:24
Seven_Six_TwoScotch`Slugworth, yes, do manual partitioning and you don't have to format your home04:25
Scotch`SlugworthSeven_Six_Two: its a flat partition do /home is in /04:26
Seven_Six_TwoScotch`Slugworth, oh, then I don't think you can. You have to format / during an install04:27

martukaswell something got corrupted enough that it wont boot so I just need to get one file out, but I'm not sure how to mount it properly from console04:31
martukasthe volume in question shows up on my desktop, but how do I know it's source address in /dev ?04:32
thoonaiyou mount it twice, first the device, then the crypted containes afairc04:36
martukasyes, i know that - but how do i know what to mount?04:36
martukaswhat's the device name to supply as argument to cryptsetup?04:37
thoonaidid you checked how many drives you have in /dev?04:44
martukasI have this thing on my desktop labeled "8.3 GB Encrypted". If I try to open it and enter the password for cryptsetup via gui it fails and I don't get any more detailed errors. To mount it via console I need to know the device id for it. Those desktop links lack any kind of "properties" and the stuff in /dev/disk is opaque  to me, so how do I identify the volume?04:44

nightdemon666dont bother googleing cheese, just simpley sudo apt-get install cheese. if the cam works, then it will work in cheese. if it works in cheese it "should" work in skype... a troubleshooting tip to use cheese to make sure the webcam is working in the os in general befoe blaming skype.04:52
nightdemon666nurow, first, why would you need sudo su?04:52
nightdemon666second, you need ot make sure that the file is owned by root04:52

nightdemon666you can make user root, and group root... sudo chown root:root /path/to/file04:54
nightdemon666then execute command04:54
nightdemon666sudo chmod 0700 /path/to/file04:54

nightdemon666it needs to be in rc.local04:54
nightdemon666/etc/rc.local i think04:55
nightdemon666XMLnewbi, thats why i suggested seeing if it would work in cheese... does the kernel see it? run lsusb or lspci and look for anything that looks like " LifeCam NX-3000"04:56

betraydi can't recall where they posted the solution though,maybe swing by the forum, search05:05
wxler not 25 apr duh05:05
nightdemon666sorry nurow, i think i managed to confuse my self on this one, i should have kept it more simple... i "think" you should be able to run that line of command at the bottom of the rc.local file. just open rc.local in gedit and paste that command "echo disable > /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe13" root will run it at boot, and root owns the rc.local file anyway.05:06
nurowok, cool, i'll try that05:07
nightdemon666wxl, i still run sudo nautilus. i havent had to run it as gksudo. i think running gksudo causes the password request to be displayed on gui screen where as sudo requests the password from command line05:07
betraydnurow if there is an 'exit 0' in rc.local your command should precede that05:08
wxlnightdemon666: i guess i don't mess with nautilus on the command line. i just use, well, the command line. but mixing gui programs with non gui programs is generally bad news.05:09

betraydi run Guake/yeahconsole and stay as root there05:11
* betrayd drinks potofcoffee05:12
nightdemon666wxl, agreed. i prefer the command line interface as well... i tend to want to tell people to sudo vi /blah or cat /blah or what ever, but then i realize that many people on in this room are probably beginers and arent really interested in the cli. although ther are some, and i still continue to offer cli suggestions, i just tend to think, "what if they want to do it graphically" technically, you can perform certainn jo05:12
martukasan encrypted volume won't mount, producing - mount: unknown filesystem type 'LVM2_member' - if I google it I mostly find discussions on how to open fedora volumes of this type, which is not my case. Anyone have some ideas?05:13

wxlnightdemon666: and indeed if you're trying to speak to your audience, gksudo for graphical apps, e.g. sudo vi or gksudo gvim but not vice versa05:13
betraydmartukas: have you run lvm commands like vgchange, etc05:13
betraydthey are usually found in those fedora forums05:13
betraydhave to run those commands before attempting a  mount05:14
nightdemon666nurow, on the contrary, i DO NOT want that. thats just like a windows hting to do, and i'll bet many of exploit allow for malware to proliferate because of such option. best to keep the su-ing of command in the command line.. thats my opinion05:14
martukasbut this was a xubuntu volume to begin with, created couple months ago with whatever encryption defaults offered during regular setup05:15
nurowi just find it a nuisance. I know its windowsy, but its not like they can't ever be right, lol05:15
nurowI mean... maybe it would be an option or a piece of software you could enable.05:15

wxlntzrmtthihu777: the b43 wiki. it fails to mention that possibility, though it does suggest to grab b43-fwcutter and the firmware. having the firmware in a package is a HUGE improvement as i had to hunt down the most recent firmware and the way it's written, the wiki will easily go out of date.05:38
guest-YdKMtwwhen i enter the password it reopens the boot page making me enter password again05:39
wxlguest-YdKMtw: probably wrong password, honestly. you can try to hit ctrl-alt-f1 and see if you can login there. if not, then it's probably your password. btw, you can get back to where you were with ctrl-alt-f705:40

jason552dodo3773: It says hardware present: but I can't go further.06:13
dodo3773jason552: Not sure. I don't have an aweful lot of experience with ndiswrapper. You loaded the module and plugged in your device and that's when you came across this error?06:14
robkI was in the process of setting up pam.d w/ ldap on a machine I'm playing around with. I can no longer log into the machine. When i go into recovery mode on ubuntu and type in the original username, it just kicks me out of the prompt and back into login.06:14

dodo3773jason552: that's when you get the error?06:16
jason552dodo3773: yes06:16

jason552dodo3773: yes06:18
jason552dodo3773: ndisgtk that is06:18
dodo3773jason552: Okay so you pointed ndisktk to the windows driver file and it installed it?06:21
dodo3773jason552: Maybe the card has to be pulled out and plugged back in and / or the module reloaded or something?06:22

vsumbash is widely used , so I would suggest to start with .06:50

dodo3773raju: My suggestion was for a user shell. Like if you pretty much live in the shell sort of thing.06:51
Betanu701How can I get a script run at startup and shutdown. I have already added it to /etc/init.d and did update-rc.d still won't run06:51

rajuhisto,  yeah usually and the default shell is bash only but i have gone through the name of ksh today .06:52
dodo3773Betanu701: Is it an init script?06:52
rajudodo3773, yes in a Ubuntu Linux machine06:52

dodo3773Betanu701: If it's not an init script then don't put it in *init* directory. Could be very problematic for you. /etc/rc.local is where that stuff goes like histo said06:54
dodo3773Betanu701: From there you can call your script externally if you need to06:55

histoBetanu701: I would suggest using cron though to avoid the problems like dodo3773 is describing06:57
dodo3773Betanu701: Externally? Like putting a script within a script. just put the /path/to/your/script.sh make sure you don't do ~/script.sh or $HOME/script.sh go like /home/username/script.sh instead06:58

lonejackwilee-nilee, to clean the house. The sping is near(at least in europe)...07:10
rajuhisto,  got it & so every time we modify the .bashrc and .profile of home user , are these files will be updated automatically or they just stood to default07:11
wilee-nileelonejack, To be honest that makes no sense. unity is a plugin in compiz running on top of gnome, I would not touch them. If you want to remove or exchange full desktops there is a website with correct lists to do so. See playing around in  this link. http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/07:12
historaju: those are default skeleton files that are copied to a home directory when a user is created07:12
tozenhi all where is mc config now? there is nothing in to ~/.mc07:13
rajuso they wont update right ?07:13
rajuhisto,  cool friend .07:13
historaju: right they will not update. You can make changes to the skeleton files and then any new user added would get the new files07:14

chunkyheadguys, what's ubuntu git?07:38
auronandace!git | chunkyhead07:38
ubottuchunkyhead: git is a distributed revision control/software code management project created by Linus Torvalds. For more information, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Git_(software)07:38
truexfan81there is a guy in #debian asking if the AMD A10-5800k APU drivers are included in the latest ubuntu07:39
guy555wilee-nilee: do you want me to paste the error log from the failed update?07:39
wilee-nileeguy555, sure.07:39
chunkyheaddoes it come preinstalled or we have to install it auronandace07:40
guy555wilee-nilee: http://pastebin.com/bVDuNXzd07:40
amit`truexfan81: That was me. It seems like there is no true support yet but drivers have to be compiled from sources.07:40
truexfan81amit`: imo the hardest part of compiling is getting all the necessary dependencies to get a successful compile, once you have those its pretty easy, so maybe these guys can tell you what deps you will need07:43
wilee-nileeguy555, Not sure honestly, why do you have this ppa, ppa's can be unstable. I have never had a problem, however i'm careful what I add to my sources.lists07:43
amit`truexfan81: The driver asked for fglrx or something similar.07:43
=== patr|ck_ is now known as patr|ck
AaronThat's why you always check the ppa status of the package,07:44
guy555wilee-nilee: well, it was a long story of troubleshooting sound problems, i thought that ppa was ok though, never had any problems until this one, and it's the only one i've added right now07:45
truexfan81amit`: is it wanting the actual fglrx? or the -dev package? sorry i can't really help, i've always used nvidia with linux07:46
wilee-nileeguy555, I see people on the channel with sound problems on occasion, I can't really give you a definitive answer, maybe others can. ;)07:46
amit`truexfan81: Yes, it is asking for fglrx, which is a dependency.07:46

delocazI have already tried nomodeset, but I can try it again if that would help08:48
K3T4M1NEWell. I decided to do an ubuntu minimal install. I partitioned the drives as follows: 72GB /home encrypted, 4GB swap encrypted, and a 10GB / partition that I flagged as bootable as I was having grub install issues. So I did the partitions like that and told grub to install to the / partition. Everything seemed to go swimmingly. I rebooted and told rEFInd to boot into linux and all I seen was GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB08:49

wickedpuppybtw 10 gb for / is pretty small .... after all it will have everything besides /home08:51
zheoffecI think when running grub-install, you should use the device, not the partition08:51
zheoffeceg. /dev/sda, not /dev/sdax08:52
zheoffecx == int08:52

phixhey, what is a good imap proxy? (basically I have three IMAP servers with unique mailboxes on them, I want a way to combine them together / use one IP address to access all mailboxes accross three IMAP servers)09:23
phixI am using cyrus, I considering setting up murder however from what I can tell it requires a single master process to always be available, my three sites are connected via VPN so they may drop out, if they drop out I still want the other mailboxes to be accessible09:23

azbarcea600 is accessible only for your user ...11:45

histobekks: right his user authorized_keys contains   KEY....   ROOT@CLIENT  instead of KEY..... USER@CLIENT I don't knwo how else to explain to him that it shouldn'tb e the same as root's authorized_keys12:51
[gnubie]histo and bekks: isn't it that the authorized_keys file is actually whatever the contents of id_rsa.pub file?12:51
histoDylanCl: ask ifn #ffmpeg it's not possible as far as I know.12:52
bekks[gnubie]: Yes, of your client, not your server.12:52
[gnubie]histo: kindly check line 15 of http://pastie.org/751414912:52
histo[gnubie]: You don't understand keys and how they work. I've told you how to fix it.12:52
bekksGnurdux: And you should not use the same keys for root and users.12:52
histoffs i'm done12:53
[gnubie]the contents of my authorized_keys file is the same as to the rest of the non-ubuntu servers that i am managing.12:53
histo[gnubie]: THEY SHOULD NOT BE THE SAME!!!!12:53
no_gravitypecc: when i press the wifi key on the keyboard, the bluetooth thingy disappears/reappears on my taskbar.12:53
bekks[gnubie]: Dont use the same keys on more than one box. Dont use the same keys amongst users.12:54
[gnubie]histo: i'm sorry if i'm disappointing you but you should not shout. i'm not ignoring you.12:54
histo[gnubie]: please look at the authorized_keys file for /home/gnubie/.ssh/authorized_keys  tell me what user@client is in there12:54
submanany ideas on the purple screen of death?12:54
histo[gnubie]: you obviously are ignoring us12:54
[gnubie]bekks: i understand your concern.12:55
histosubman: video drivers?12:55
[gnubie]histo: it ends with gnubie@example.com12:55
submanhisto, what about them12:55
histo[gnubie]: and your /root/.ssh/authorized_keys  what user@client does that have12:55
[gnubie]histo: same.12:55
histo[gnubie]: THis is on the server right?12:56
submanhisto, is ubuntu compatible with the new A6 APUs?12:56
histo!fglrx | subman12:56
ubottusubman: For Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VideoDriverHowto12:56
DylanClhisto, #ffmpeg is dead12:56
[gnubie]histo: simply because, i created the /root/.ssh/authorized_keys and /home/gnubie/.ssh/authorized_keys files which contents coming from my id_rsa.pub which is also the same ssh public key file on my non-ubuntu servers.12:57
histo[gnubie]: because your files are wrong. if your root's authorized_keys file has gnubie@example.com12:58
[gnubie]bekks: once the ordinary user can access already, i will remove root's access and the /root/.ssh recursively.12:59
histo[gnubie]: if you want to keep screwing around go ahead but i've told you how to fix it and copy the keys the proper way from the client with ssh-copy-id12:59
bekks[gnubie]: hist just said it all.12:59
[gnubie]histo: i understand what you're trying to say. thanks.12:59
* histo is doubtfull13:00
[gnubie]one question and sorry for my ignorance in ubuntu. is there an rbac or similar to that prevents file permissions or changes in the file system?13:01
bekks[gnubie]: Not by default. You already asked that and you've already got answers.13:01
[gnubie]bekks: if in case it's enabled, what could that be?13:02
submanhisto, I didn't find anything useful on that referenced page.13:02
bekks[gnubie]: the one and only thing preventing it from working is your wrong configuration. You have been told already.13:02
szekelyaHi.Just bought an ASUS U32U RX004D laptop without OS. How do I find ut whether I need the 32 or 64 bit Ubuntu?13:02
bekks[gnubie]: You have been told very clearly whats wrong - if you keep ignoring us, we cant help you.13:02
vltszekelya: Run a live CD, then look for the "lm" flag in /proc/cpuinfo13:03
vltszekelya: lm = 64 bit13:03
szekelyavlt: any hint in BIOS?13:03
cfhowlettszekelya, look it up on the ASUS site and see if it's 32 or 64?13:03
histoszekelya: what type of cpu is in it?13:03
vltszekelya: The 32 bit version should run on everything.13:04
bekksszekelya: You need to know which CPU it is.13:04
AsterfieldIs it possible to simulate a Fn key press with a keyboard that has no Fn key?13:04
RarrikinsIf /tmp isn't writeable and I reboot, will SSH access still work?13:04
[gnubie]bekks: i'm not ignoring you. i am just puzzled here. why in non-ubuntu works in the same way i try to do it here in ubuntu precise?13:04
szekelyaAMD Brazos Dual Core E45013:04
[gnubie]szekelya: if you don't have 4gb ram, just use 32bit13:04
bekks[gnubie]: Using that wrong configuration, it will not work on any host OS.13:04
szekelyaexactly 4gb13:04
bekksszekelya: if your CPU supports 64bit, use 64bit.13:05
[gnubie]bekks: but again, it works in non-ubuntu.13:05
[gnubie]bekks: please, don't argue with it.13:05
histo[gnubie]: the problem is your authorized_keys files on the ubuntu server.13:05
bekks[gnubie]: I will not argue, I will ignore you, since you are ignoring us.13:05
francesco_mint with mate or cinnamon? Or Chakra linux? :)13:06

francesco_thx.. (excue me for the of topic.. :P)13:06
DylanClWhat is the best program to record videos besides recordmydesktop?13:06
Asterfield"re-map" the Fn key to right Ctrl or something perhaps?13:06
[gnubie]is "id_rsa.pub == authorized_keys" ?13:06
histoDylanCl: ffmpeg13:06
bekks[gnubie]: No.13:07
histo[gnubie]: not your jacked up ones13:07
DylanClAnd with ffmpeg you can record and upload to youtube?13:07
DJonesfrancesco_: None of those are supported versions of Ubuntu, you'll need to ask in the appropriate channels for advice on those13:07
AsterfieldDylanCl: recordmydesktop vidoes are uploadable to youtube13:07
bekks[gnubie]: The authorized_keys on the server has to contain the public key of the client - as you have been told multiple times.13:07
histo[gnubie]: with the proper user@client13:07
DylanClWell, for whatever reason, when I record wwith recordmydesktop my footage speeds up like, 10 times13:08
histoI'm out good luck [gnubie]13:09
AsterfieldDylanCl: I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure you can lock the framerate13:09
DylanClI have it set to 50 frames per seconds13:09
AsterfieldDylanCl: With the --fps N option?13:09
DylanClWhat do you mean?13:10
snugglDylanCl: the easiest way would be to open a black fullscreen window below it13:10
snugglDylanCl: and run the game witout window borders13:10
submanI'm still stuck on the purple screen of death here13:10
Asterfield$ man recordmydesktop: "Image options" "--fps N(number>0.0) "A positive number denoting desired framerate"13:11
[gnubie]bekks: isn't it that the ssh public key is the one that is generated as id_rsa.pub file?13:11
RarrikinsIf /tmp isn't writeable and I reboot, will I still be able to log in remotely via SSH?13:11
AsterfieldDylanCl: ^^ :P13:11
bekks[gnubie]: Yes.13:11
[gnubie]afaik, the client don't actually need the id_rsa.pub. what is required on the client side is the id_rsa or the public key.13:11
bekks[gnubie]: The client needs the public key, since its the public key that identifies the client on the server.13:12
[gnubie]on the server side, the contents of the id_rsa.pub should be on the authorized_keys. if the username allows multiple users to use it, the contents of the authorized_keys will have more than one line of different id_rsa.pub13:13
[gnubie]bekks: not the private key?13:13
[gnubie]bekks: whatever it is, my client comes both the id_rsa and id_rsa.pub13:13
bekks[gnubie]: No. You have to put the public key of the client into the authorized_keys file on the server. I told you minutes ago.13:14
* vlt did hours ago13:14
[gnubie]bekks: that's the same way i did already.13:14
bekks[gnubie]: Obviously you didnt.13:14
snuggl[gnubie]: are you on ubuntu as client too?13:14
[gnubie]bekks: how should i prove you that i did? should i send you my id_rsa.pub and authorized_keys files?13:15
[gnubie]snuggl: nope. i'm on mountain lion.13:15
no_gravityHello! I have this problem on my notebook: Sometimes I boot, Gnome comes up and there is no network applet and no network. I reboot. The same. I reboot. I reboot. And at sometime the net suddenly works and the network applet is there. Any ideas how to go about this? What would you do, when the machine is booted and there is no network applet?13:15
snuggl[gnubie]: do you have the command "ssh-copy-id" ?13:15
snuggl[gnubie]: if so, thats a tool to copy your id files to the remove server13:15
snugglin the correct place etc.13:16
[gnubie]snuggl: not on mountain lion13:16
hello_Mr123   13:16
mikerussel_pidgin sucks :(13:17
snuggl[gnubie]: and you are correct, the server shall have the public key and the client the private13:17
snugglnot the other way around13:17
vlt[gnubie]: Did you paste ~gnubie/.ssh/authorized_keys already?13:17
snuggl[gnubie]: it also needs to be chmod 700 else sshd will ignore it13:17

vltsnuggl: The NEWKEYS line?13:30
snuggl[gnubie]: the first row if id_rsa, is it "----BEGIN STUFF----"13:30

[gnubie]snuggl: thanks for pointing me to /var/log/auth.log . after changing the permission of the authorized_keys to 400, the log actually says account is locked13:31

submanCould this be a uefi issue?13:43
vlt[gnubie]: yw13:43
[gnubie]so the problem was not about the permission nor the authorized_keys file. the problem was because the user is still locked on the system.13:43
snuggl[gnubie]: you can unlock with "passwd -u user"13:43
snuggland lock with -l13:44
KatyPerryX420thanks i'm in and i'm outta here if i need any help setting up my ajax server i will be back13:44
[gnubie]snuggl: that's what i did. but it prompted me that the user don't have a password yet. so i realised, maybe i skipped on creating the password that causes this problem. in ubuntu, if the user don't have a password yet, it is automatically locked to prevent a passwordless login.13:45

shishireI remember that an older version of ubuntu had an Authorizations gui, which acted as a front-end to policykit.  I'm running 12.10 and I'm trying to allow a specific subset of stuff for a standard user on the machine.  Is there such a gui still?  Or at least a human readable list of all the permissions and how they interact?16:37

submanWell after using Ubuntu since 2007 on all my machines I have to throw in the towel and install Windows.  All due to this new UEFI garbage.  Sad17:00
she_dyeddelocaz: where did you type it, its for boot/grub screen17:01
semitonesshe_dyed, thanks17:01
mythsubman: why?17:01
delocazshe_dyed: On the screen where you can pick "try before installing" etc, I hit F6, selected nomodeset and pressed space, then ESC, then enter17:01

histo!uefi | subman efi is quite tricky to get working17:08
ubottusubman efi is quite tricky to get working: UEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware, it is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI17:08
submanhisto, yeah, follow those directions.17:08
=== alexis is now known as Guest91904
histosubman: well can you disable efi in the bios and enable legacy mode?17:09
submanhisto, oops, yes, I've followed those instructions17:09
submanhisto, yes.17:09
histosubman: and when you boot in legacy mode?17:09
submanhisto, same result.  No boot, kernel panic17:11
cornfeedhobotrism: figured it out. i need python3 version which is only in raring17:12
histosubman: well is it booting in bios mode or not. Youc an tell by the grub screen if you read the uefi instructions. Also how did you make this usb?17:12
submanhisto, here is the output from the boot-repair if that is of any help.  http://paste.ubuntu.com/5708205/17:13
trismcornfeedhobo: ah that would do it17:13
submanhisto, it does not boot in legacy mode.17:13
histosubman: how'd you get boot repair to run?17:14
submanhisto, live usb17:14
histosubman: So the live usb boots fine?17:15
submanhisto, yes17:15
delocazSo can anyone help me with my problem?17:15
histosubman: it's booting the live usb in efi mode but /dev/sda doesn't have efi stuff on it at all from that boot repair info17:16
eXcAliBuRwhat should i use to have a IMAP email serv running on ubuntu 1217:16
pasqualefilm 2013 ita17:16
cornfeedhobojain kubuntu17:16
histosubman: also sda is partitioned using msdos mbr instead of gpt and there is no fat32 efi partition17:17
submanhisto, so I guess the default install does not work properly with 12.04?  We just chose to erase the disk and install Ubuntu17:17
histosubman: It's supposed to according to that uefi link from ubottu right? Although I believe it says something about 12.10 having more efi fixes17:18
submanhisto,  actually the uefi ubuntu page says 12.04.02 and 12.10 should handle this all automatically17:19
BluesKajdelocaz, SiS "graphics card ? are you sure , run lspci | grep VGA and pastebin the out put pls17:19
delocazBluesKaj: How do I get to a terminal from a live CD that won't load the GUI17:20
theadmindelocaz: Ctrl-Alt-F2, but I suggest you not use Ubuntu on such old hardware. There're better options.17:20
delocaztheadmin: That's why I said *L*ubuntu :)17:21
submanhisto, so this uefi stuff really is a nightmare17:21
theadmindelocaz: Oh, sorry, I joined not so long ago and didn't see17:21
Random832hey, question17:21
pasqualefilm una famiglia perfetta17:21
BluesKajdelocaz, you're in the tty , just run the command17:22
theadmindelocaz: Aaaaanyway, if you can't run X on the livecd you can use the alternate CD to install (with 12.10, hold Shift during boot and select textmode install, can't quite recall where it was)17:22
Random832i get some weird mouse lag - like, when i start dragging, it doesn't properly pick up the drag until like half a second later17:22
=== lukas_ is now known as Guest85111
histosubman: yes. It's even worse with 32bit efi17:22
Random832so instead of dragging from the point i clicked on it drags from whatever the mouse was over when it kicked in17:22
Random832any way to figure out why it's doing this?17:22
histosubman: I would create the paritioning my self. ensure that the usb is booting in efi mode. You can tell by the grub screen if it's graphical or text mode when the usb boots.17:22
submanhisto, not really installable anymore by the average person now.17:23
wilee-nileedelocaz, the alternate is now a net install. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/alternative-downloads17:23
histosubman: it's new. With each new version of ubuntu it will get better. Like 13.04 etc...17:23

submanhisto, yes but I need hardware running now17:23

TheCrownedFoxHowdy! So I have a script that I made being created in /etc/profile.d every time I login, and I'm not quite sure how to go about getting rid of it anymore. where should I be looking?17:24
Random832exact position varies depending on keyboard especially with international layouts17:24
Random832what is your physical keyboard layout?17:24
theadmindelocaz: err, well: http://i.imgur.com/pNrmwFQ.png17:24

histosubman: try 13.0417:25
Random832...right no i mean i would say which key on your keyboard is the same physical key as \ on US17:25
delocazOkay, it's next to Z17:25
submanhisto, well the rest of the fix seems beyond my capabilities.17:25
Random832ah, no, the one next to Z is a different one17:25
Random832try your '/* key next to enter17:26
Random832(if the one next to z works, great for you, but that key doesn't physically exist on US keyboards)17:26
Random832and some US keyboard layout software may not support it17:26

WillisIVXXany advice for installing ubuntu 12.04.2 on a win 8 machince?19:29
reokieCan anyone explain to me why most of the linux community counts user-Unfriendliness as a strength? (not trying to flame)19:30
Nvveentomatobros, I did, it just spits out numbers19:30
wilee-nilee!uefi > WillisIVXX yes read this and use the ubuntu forums for help.19:30
ubottuWillisIVXX, please see my private message19:30
reokieI feel like the linux community focuses too much on the RTFM mentality sometimes19:31
Ghost_562!ot | reokie19:31
ubottureokie: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!19:31
Nvveentomatobros, I think smartmontools actually failed. I installed gsmartcontrol and it won't let me do the short test19:32
NvveenSays it fails19:32

tomatobrosiansir sudo ?19:38
rymate1234BluesKaj: I wouldn't expect kdesudo to work when I haven't explicitly installed it19:38
rymate1234I only installed kde-plasma-desktop and the packages I thought would make gtk apps not suck19:39
iansirthanks tomato19:39

FMKiloCan anyone help me with amazon instant video on chrome?19:40
FMKiloamazon support told me to do exactly what I had already done.19:41
FMKilothen I had to install firefox to prove that the same issue persisted19:41
Ghost_562fmkilo, post the question/error, if someone knows/has the answer they will help.19:41
spacedementia87Ok I used that new USB creator tool I was recommended and I am getting stuck at the same place19:42
Ghost_562spacedementia, you get any error?19:42
FMKiloAn error occurred and your player could not be updated.This is likely because your Flash Player or Browser needs to be updated.This update is required to play back this video.19:42
spacedementia87no just see the spinning busy cursor again19:42
Ghost_562you give it any time to think?19:43
Ghost_562FMkilo, flash up to date?19:43
spacedementia87It has been like that for 5 minutes now19:43
Nvveentomatobros, gsmartcontrol does the same thing again now, the short self-test keeps hanging at 90%19:43
FMKiloupdated it today19:43
Ghost_562FMKilo, updated browser?19:43
rymate1234BluesKaj: surprisingly, kdesudo now works after I installed the package. No reboot required19:43
FMKiloupdated today.19:43
Ghost_562spacedementia, any black screen, maybe usb is loose?19:44
tomatobrosNvveen is /dev/sdb mounted ?19:44
Ghost_562FMKilo, any system updates pushed?19:44
OerHeksFMKilo, known issue, see this tread > http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2121086&page=2  solution i do not recommend: downgrade flash19:44
spacedementia87No no black screen, Still showing the "Who are you?" screen19:44
BluesKajrymate1234:  i never had to install kdesudo ,, i've been on kde for yrs so ne need19:44
BluesKajno need19:44
spacedementia87USB is in fine.  Would be quite a coincidence if it locked up at the same place every time19:44
tomatobrosFMKilo try google chrome with pepper flash it may help19:44
Ghost_562spacedementia, is your hash the same as the one on the ubuntu website?19:45
Nvveen_tomatobros, gsmartcontrol does the same thing again now, the short self-test keeps hanging at 90%19:45
FMKilopepper flash doesn't work at all. it tells you to disable it.19:45
spacedementia87I will check now, but it was last time I checked19:45
rymate1234BluesKaj: well I only installed it today, and I didn't install kdesudo19:46
tomatobrosNvveen_ if /dev/sdb mounted try umount and run test again19:46
tomatobrosbtw short test is useless if disks have bad sectors19:47
BluesKajkdesudo is just command for root permissions for guis , sudo is the same as ubuntu in the terminal, rymate123419:47
spacedementia87hmm I can't find the hash on the ubuntu site now19:47
Nvveen_tomatobros, /dev/sdb isn't mounted, fdisk doesn't even list /dev/sdb19:47
Ghost_562spacedementia, can you enter anything on the "Who are you" Screen?19:47
rymate1234BluesKaj: so why didn't you just tell me to run sudo systemsettings?19:47
spacedementia87I have enetered all the stuff on that screen and clicked continue19:48
spacedementia87that is when it locks up19:48
FMKilorolling back flash worked. Not to say that I like to run older versions of flash, but that version is still quite new.19:48
BluesKajbecause system settings is a gui , rymate123419:48
rymate1234and sudo systemsettings works perfectly19:48
Ghost_562on the username, try removing capital letters if it has any.19:48
rymate1234also kdesudo is is a gui for sudo19:48
BluesKajit's the same as gksudo for gnome/unity19:48
spacedementia87nop no caps in there19:49
FMKiloI have an interesting question that's not related to my previous one.19:49
rymate1234all wrappers for sudo19:49
