duhamelrAg3: yeah it is, it's listing available networks. but why would it only work after login ? not boot?00:00
wilee-nileesgf, I would use gparted close the installer and open gparted and show a image of that HD.00:00
spacedementia87right I am up and running00:01
spacedementia87I have a question though00:01
wilee-nileespacedementia87, cool.00:01

spacedementia87Ubuntu hasn't detencte the resolution of my monitor correctly00:01
rAg3duhamel: rfkill list00:01
spacedementia87I know how to add a resolution using xrandr, but how do I make it persustant?00:01
wilee-nileespacedementia87, have you looked in display00:01
rAg3without logging out then00:01
spacedementia87Yeah, the correct resolution isn't there00:02
spacedementia87so I added a file called 10-monitor.conf to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d00:03

wilee-nileesgf_, Yes it is its the ubuntu swap, however we can leave them mounted probably, sda6 the swap is automounted on a live cd.00:11
wilee-nileesgf_, So delete that partition in the sdb00:12

duhamelrAg3: so, really weird. i tried logging out00:14
wilee-nileesgf_ yep right click to make a ext4. Now ubuntu will run in a extended and you can have a lot of partitions if you want, a single HD can only have 4 primary partitions, are you planning on adding other instals to this HD?00:14
duhamelafter i logged back in wireless was still "not ready" so i suspend.00:15
sgf_No plans.00:15
rAg3duhamel: i am at a loss now !! put on your query about having to log out again , someone might know what to do exactly00:15
wilee-nileesgf_, Cool just make a ext4 the size you want with a right click in the space.00:16
sgf_Is this correct?00:16
duhamelbut when i cant end suspension (probably because i did auto install and dont think there is a swap) i power down by holding physical button for 5 secs00:16

sgf_I already mounted it though00:20
wilee-nileesgf_, Cool you need to make a partition table click device and the make partition table choose msdos and run the green check.00:21
wilee-nileesgf_, I missed that yuou mounted the sdb unmount it00:22
wilee-nileesgf_, So with the sdb unmounted make the partition table.00:23
duhamel i figured it out. it doesn't work after restart but does after power down power up. new problem. when i click shutdown it's restarting00:24

duhamelwifi still works in that case though.00:24

wilee-nileesgf, It may be that you need to unmount the sda partitions, the sda6 and sda400:33
sgfI'll try00:33
wilee-nileesgf, The sda6 unmount will take care of both00:33
duhamelwisey: im sorry, i don't know anything about it. unless you just need a bootable copy of linux on a usb.00:34
sgfUnmount is greyed out for sda400:34
wiseyduhamel :: that is exactly what I need (a bootable copy of linux on a usb)00:34
duhameloh. very simple.00:35
wiseyduhammel :: but I'm on Windows here00:35
wiseyduhamel :: cool00:35
duhamelpick your distro. download the iso. format usb to fat3200:35
duhameldownload unetbootin. you can find it on google.00:35
sgfUnmount is greyed out for sda4, wilee-nilee00:36
wilee-nileesgf, I think with all this messing around you should reboot the usb and start with gparted again, do not mount anything.00:36
duhamelwhat is your current os?00:36
wilee-nileesgf, Did you mount anything from the terminal?00:36
duhameloh sorry. i see.00:36
duhamelwindows download or run the unetbootin.exe00:37
sgfHang on00:37
wilee-nileesgf, I would reboot messing around in a live enviroment and mounting and unmounting can be problematic if not done right, I have to assume this is what has happened.00:37

sgfIt's not the one labeled "terminal", is it? Because that just gives me a huge list of commands when I type "mount"00:58

duhamelpeace all. thanks for any who helped. big thanks to rAg3 for all your help earlier today!01:01

Raptor05DWSR: Have you tried dpkg -P or dpkg --purge package_name?02:29
themillor just "aptitude purge ~c"02:30
Morph4meonly if he has aptitude installed02:30
DWSRRaptor05: I can purge them each manually.02:30
DWSRRaptor05: Or I can just copypasta what I just showed you and let dpkg do it.02:30
themillyou'd better not copy+paste that command.02:31
DWSRthemill: I probably should actually install aptitude.02:31
DWSRthemill: Why? Works just fine.02:31
ozruxoWould anyone happen to know where I could get a quick answer to setting up IPTables?02:31
Morph4meaptitude is excellent imo02:31
themillDWSR: perhaps you should copy+paste it and check ;)02:31
DWSRozruxo: What exactly are you trying to do with iptables? iptables is VERY flexible and powerful, and thus VERY complex.02:32
DWSRthemill: I understand what each portion of the command does.02:32
themillDWSR: either the website you copied it from or your irc client have carefully put "smart quotes" in there not single quotes.02:32
DWSRthemill: Oh, IRC02:32
dr_willisaptitude did have some issues.. but i think its been fixed now.. but im not sure. ;) i rarely need it02:34
ozruxoI have the an apache server connect to mySQL with a restricted range of 1024:65535  but I want to make sure I can SSH to MYSQL as well through 3306. Trying to figure out how to add that line.02:34
DWSRozruxo: 1 server or 2?02:34
DWSRozruxo: sorry, 1 physical box or 2.02:35
DWSR(or virtual, I suppose)02:35
cisconinjahello folks, i am running ubuntu 12.04 LTS on an HP pavilion dv7 laptop , my problem is my wireless internet is very slow, really i mean it is slow that speedtestdotnet shows my dowload is at 0.05 on a 13Mbps connection . any fix ?02:35
DWSRcisconinja: Do you have the same speed when sitting right next to the router, or when plugging your laptop in via an ethernet cable?02:35
bluefoxI keep trying to install ubuntu gnome02:36
cisconinjaDWSR: i am next to the wireless router02:36
bluefoxbeta 2 and raring nightly just halt after the second screen02:36
DWSRozruxo: Do you want to SSH into the MySQL box, or do you want to use a MySQL admin tool to connect to the box.02:36
dr_willisbluefox:  see #ubuntu+1 for rareing02:36
bluefoxthe one that space checks and asks if you want to install updates during install02:36
ozruxoSSH into MySQL perferred02:37
bluefoxwhy am I in this channel02:37
DWSRozruxo: Then don't run it on 3306.02:37
DWSRRun it on 22.,02:37
dr_willisbluefox:  you tell us.. ;)02:37
DWSRLike a good boy.02:37
bluefoxdr_willis,  i didn/t /join02:37
dr_willisbluefox:  your client did then... would be my guess02:37
ozruxoHmm...should I have a separate SSH for my Apache Server or connect to one and remote into the other :S02:38
cisconinjait is telling me in the network tools that my lik speed is 1Mbps02:38
DWSRozruxo: It depends on how you have your network set up, to be quite honest.02:39
DWSRozruxo: If they're set up as peers, then I would have seperate SSH servers set up for each one of them.02:39
DWSRcisconinja: Then your link speed is 1Mbps.02:39
DWSRcisconinja: Do you get the same speed if you plug the laptop into the router directly?02:40
DWSRriddrib: Oh hai.02:40
ozruxoSame domain, and trying to access remotely?02:40
Sacryohi all, something very interesting/strange is happenning to my ubuntu partition if anyone knows what's going on that'd be cool.  my partition needs the live CD in to boot, but that's all it needs the CD for. any ideas why it needs the live cd to boot??02:40
DWSRozruxo: I would have seperate SSH instances, personally.02:40
DWSRozruxo: That's me, though.02:40
DWSRozruxo: Though, if you only have 1 server that's just doing MySQL work, maybe not.02:40
ozruxoYeah that seems like the best option atm02:41
DWSRozruxo: Especially since you can forward ports through an SSH tunnel if you really need to.02:41
riddribwhere can set eclipse to android?02:41
riddribok thank02:41
ozruxoOh i will look that up. Thanks!02:42
cisconinjaDWSR: i didn't try to connect it directly to my router, give me a min and i will come back with results02:42
DWSRWhat's ubuntu-minimal?02:42
ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD02:43
cisconinjaDWSR: yep, with wire it is 14.46Mbps dowload and 10Mbps upload02:43
DWSRdr_willis: No, the metapackage, not the installer.02:43

CiscoNinja_dr_willis: are you available to assist me please02:52
MorpheausTwenty-three, have you tried booting into "Advanced Mode" when booting the kernel?  Basically - when grub comes up, select "Advanced Options" and then select "RecoverY' for the currenty kernel02:53
Morpheausthen do the "check all disks" option to check your disks02:53
dr_willisCiscoNinja_:  depends on the issue. ;)02:53
Twenty-threeDWSR: i am using the computer in question but i am in windows at the moment02:53
MorpheausTwenty-three, you can even drop to a root shell if needed to fix potential issues...02:54
DWSRTwenty-three: Do you have another way to get onto IRC? Phone, tablet, anything? It'll be a lot easier to fix if I can walk you through.02:54

CiscoNinja_dr_willis: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5709425/02:55
Twenty-threeMorpheaus: from what I have read, I don't think I get to see GRUB, from the screen in which I choose whether to boot as windows 7 or as ubuntu I am sent to a screen with some white text (so fast I cannot read it) and then immediatelly to the blank screen in which it sits indefinitely02:55
DWSRTwenty-three: You have a bunch of recovery options.02:56
GajillionI am having trouble changing the settings in my Software Sources window, Updates tab. When I check a box, it automatically unchecks itself.02:56
MorpheausTwenty-three, have you tried pressing Escape at this screen to see if you have any options?02:56
Twenty-threeDWSR: I don't have another way to get into IRC atm02:56
DWSRTwenty-three: You can usually force GRUB to show up by hammering the escape key right after the BIOS.02:56
MorpheausTwenty-three, you can also boot the Ubuntu CD and use the recovery options from there as well...02:56
DWSRTwenty-three: Additionally, if you have access to a DVD or USB stick, you can create a live environment to do work on your installation.02:56
DWSRTwenty-three: I would recommend the second route, because you get the benefit of having a working computer with which to troubleshoot with.02:57
DWSRTwenty-three: Worst comes to worst, you'll need to reinstall Ubuntu, but I HIGHLY doubt that.02:58
dr_willisCiscoNinja_:  so you may want to  be checking askubuntu.com or the forums for slow network speeds with the  iwlwifi  driver would be my guess.02:58
beanDWSR, you can get grub to show up by holding down shift.02:58
DWSRTwenty-three: I would almost be willing to bet you either need to just let dpkg finish the upgrade, or you just need to regenerate your grub menu.02:58
beanwhile booting02:58
DWSRbean: Sorry, it's GRUB2, not GRUB.02:58
DWSRbean: My bad.02:58
beanyeah, isn't it still hold down shift?02:58
* bean forgets02:59
DWSRbean: Yeah, I was saying you were right.02:59
DWSRGRUB1 was hammer escape.02:59
DWSRGRUB2 is shift.02:59
dr_willishold shift. ;) i belive02:59
Twenty-threeMorpheaus and DWSR: i am not sure this is what you mean but I downloaded the installer and burned the .iso to a dvd, I assumed that upon booting from this it'd disply some fixing option but it only allows me to "try ubuntu" or to "install ubuntu"02:59
DWSRTwenty-three: This isn't windows, there's no "repair" option.02:59
DWSRTwenty-three: You want Try ubuntu.02:59
DWSRTwenty-three: This gives you a live, working environment which you can do things in in order to fix your computer.03:00
dr_willisbe nice if there was some repair options on the live cd. ;) to fix common issues03:00
Guest18424tried  sudo -s but still wont accept my password03:00
MorpheausTwenty-three, yep - try ubuntu - you'll be able to clean everything up from there03:01
DWSRTwenty-three: Basically, when you "Try Ubuntu", the entire contents of the disc are copied into the available physical RAM in your system, whereby the computer acts as if you have installed Ubuntu into your RAM.03:01

_unreal_any one done a lot with XBMC?03:02
DWSRTwenty-three: No, you can operate on any attached devices.03:02
DWSR_unreal_: Yes, then I switched to Plex.03:02
DWSRIt's forked from XBMC, but offers a segregation between serving media and consuming media.03:02
dr_willisPlex sort of annoyed me last week.. been using xbmc instead/. ;)03:03
Morpheausvery good app (plex) - I prefer AirVideo for my iOS devices though :)03:03
DWSRMorpheaus: I prefer not having iOS devices. :)03:03
MorpheausDWSR, totally understand :)03:03

MorpheausTwenty-three, good luck!03:03
Twenty-threethanks for you time :)03:03
DWSRAnyway, I prefer plex to XBMC because of the centralization of media.03:04
sect0r^ding ding03:04
DWSRI can stick PMS on a box with a ton of hardware (fast proc, gobs of RAM, huge arrays, etc.)03:04
DWSRThen just mount a RasPi to each of my TVs.03:04
DWSRThen I install plex on my phone, tablet, and laptops. I can consume media from any of them, or use my tablet or phone as a remote for an instance running on any other device.03:05
dr_willisDWSR:  ;)Yep. thats whats my pis are doing.. but  i havent messed been messing with them lately03:05
DWSRSo I can use my phone to control my RasPi running Plex.03:05
MorpheausDWSR, ya - lot's of small devices out now that you can also use (i.e. miniand GK803) that allow for playback of 1080p content streaming as well - I use PMS with these little devices and then don't need the high-end PC as they render the content03:05

FrankeH123does anyone know if the cyborg v7 keyboard is compatible with ubuntu?03:10
DWSR_unreal_:  MKV is a container format, meaning it holds video and audio streams.03:10
dr_willisDWSR:  not really. the wife wanted the special features on the dvds so shes happy now.03:10
Morpheaus_unreal_, you have to re-encode them technically if you decide to change quality or convert the MPEG2 DVD to an MPEG4 stream...03:10

FrankeH123we aren't devs (i don't think so lol)03:28
jribmerpnderp: 12.04 was released about a year ago.  Ubuntu doesn't update most software once a release is made unless there are security issues or major bugs03:29

merpnderpjrib: Thanks a million. That is good to know.03:29
AndreuLsno offence jrib, but it seems like this channel is filled with 13 years old wannabe tech kids , and since you're allowing such language I assume I can have a polite chat about unix.03:30

SecretFireMobileIm trying to dual boot win7 and kubuntu but cant get the live cd to detect windows. Should i install kubuntu first then windows or vice versa?03:31
FrankeH123that sounds smart secretfire03:31
merpnderpSonikkuAmerica: I'll just download latest from the site and maintain it myself. It comes with a prebuilt binary, so it's cake to use.03:31
MorpheausSecretFireMobile, usually - the Windows Installer will break the ubuntu boot loader03:31
FrankeH123when you get the livecd started get gparted, and make a new partition, (you know the deal)03:31
MorpheausSecretFireMobile, I'd be careful either way (make a backup)03:31
FrankeH123yeah, but im asuming if he can install kubuntu over that, he already is done backing up03:32
FrankeH123or he doesn't have any data that he needs on it.03:33

_unreal_try google chrome03:38
felizardoGuest18424: password + enter03:38
_unreal_or a lighter we browser OmnipotentEntity03:38
wilee-nileecisconinja, Can you clearly state what you want?03:38
MorpheausI'm assuming that set's it back to the base install and you'd need to install packages you possibly had on Ubuntu before the conversion...03:38
Guest18424terminal will not accept numbers03:38
FrankeH123dont use chrome03:38
FrankeH123chrome = SPYWARE03:38
OmnipotentEntity_unreal_, I have 16GB of memory and an 8-core AMD processor, there should be no reason why Xorg just sits at 100% CPU when it's open on a webpage, also XChat exhibits the same behavior03:38
SonikkuAmericaFrankeH123: O.o03:38
cisconinjawilee-nilee: i am currently on xbuntu. i want to remove it and go back to unity03:38
FrankeH123well unreal said try google chjrome03:39
FrankeH123And, as i said, CHROME = SPYWARWE03:39
_unreal_OmnipotentEntity, sounds like you have some CODE problems locked in a loop if your sitting at 100% cpu03:39
FrankeH123Firefox is for pros03:39
SonikkuAmericaFrankeH123: And how so, other than Google uses that info for their own purposes?03:39
OmnipotentEntityI have been unable to reproduce the issue with Chrome, but I prefer using Firefox03:39
Morpheauscisconinja, if it's just "unity" and lightdm that you want - you could just set lightdm and unity as the defaults - to get lightdm: sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm03:40
wilee-nileecisconinja, This site in the playing around option gives you lists of specific releases on removing whole desktops and installing another. http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/03:40
SonikkuAmericaOmnipotentEntity: The X.Org server is doing this?03:40
_unreal_OmnipotentEntity, is this a problem from the moment you start the program or only after visiting a few web pages?03:40
_unreal_and who ever said chrome = spyware, NO ARGUMENT there but are not all web browsers moe or less spyware03:41
OmnipotentEntitythe CPU usage is under the Xorg process, but it seems to be linked to Firefox or XChat usage.  It's not immediate in most cases but I can trigger it by going to certain websites.03:41
SonikkuAmericaMorpheaus: I don't think the lightdm thing will help the case any, Xubuntu uses lightdm (GTK+ 2 version)03:41
wilee-nileecisconinja, Be sure you are using the desktop package lists for what ever release you are using03:41
_unreal_OmnipotentEntity, do those web pages have JAVA?03:41
=== baba is now known as hack
Guest18424unable to use numbers in my admin password, why?03:41

_unreal_OmnipotentEntity, I'm just speculating but I wonder if you have some kind of a settings/code ERROR in your java03:42
OmnipotentEntity_unreal_, that would cause firefox's javascript engine to peg 100% CPU, not X.org03:42

OmnipotentEntity_unreal_, then why does XChat do it?03:44
_unreal_Guest18424,  there is NO reason why you can not use numbers.. I find it hard to believe that your computer is not letting you use numbers as part of a password. I think ther is something you are not telling us or something is really broken03:44

_unreal_being a parent of a 4yo I dont feel like spending lots of time trying to get a loosing battle in my favor :)03:50
MorpheausWotWhere, it may be related to either the kernel driver or the xorg driver - did you install anything "experimental" or were you just doing regular updates?03:50

_unreal_my retro/legacy system has win98/lglinux03:51
WotWhereno regular updates via the update manager.. it ahs to be the xorg.. coz after restarting and seeing the Slow repaints.. then i did the Kernel update03:51
_unreal_WotWhere, slow repaints?03:52
MorpheausWotWhere, to downgrade packages - I use synaptic - sudo apt-get install synaptic - from there you can highlight a package, and then click on "Package --> Force Package" and select the version you'd like...03:52
SonikkuAmericaWotWhere: There was a recent update to xserver-xorg-core though...03:53
MorpheausYou can see what xorg packages that were installed by opening Software Center and clicking on the "History" tab - it'll show you the last packages you installed - you can then write them down and then regress then with synaptic...03:53
_unreal_she_dyed, my camcorder is an SD 30GB harddrive and has a memory card slot supporting upto 16gb adititonal03:54
bretoliusOmnipotentEntity, i installed bitlbee via apt-get and it works perfectlty, but I would like some of the features in the newer version, so I installed it into /usr/local from source....  installing from source does not set up the correct startup or the correct user like apt-get does.... so either I need to set up the source install correctly like the apt-get one, or have the apt-get install03:54
bretoliuspoint to the right version of the program03:54
bretoliusobiously, i dont really know what I am dong03:54
WotWhere@_unreal_   ex. when i switch the workspace using ctrl+alt+arrow key, its takes a sec to switch or Lags, the Dash hangs for an eternity03:54
OmnipotentEntitybretolius, is the newest version in debian yet?  Because you can construct a .deb package that you can install, rather than attempting to manage it directly.03:55

bretoliusand OmnipotentEntity, do you recomend doing that for all source installs?03:56

Akiva-Mobileif I install something via source, "sudo make install", can I uninstall it using synaptic package manager?03:57
OmnipotentEntityAkiva-Mobile, no03:57
_unreal_ok but that does not answer the question. do you have more then one video display connected to the laptop? LCD display and external? or just one03:57
Akiva-Mobileand if I can't, do I have to "make" it again before I can do "sudo make uninstall"?03:57
MorpheausAkiva-Mobile, no03:57
bretoliusGahhhhhhrrrrr why cant homebrew just work on linux :(03:57
OmnipotentEntityAkiva-Mobile, you do not have to compile again to make uninstall03:57
linuxuz3ris there a pandora client for ubuntu?03:57
SonikkuAmericaAkiva-Mobile: You'll have to [ sudo make uninstall ] from the directory you installed it to, unless the program has its own uninstall script.03:57
OmnipotentEntityif the Makefile contains a make uninstall you're in luck, most don't03:57
Morpheausonly if it has an uninstall in the make file03:58
_unreal_WotWhere, only reason i ask is becasue some video mods can cause great slow down. if running multi display. and one of the settings is of an ODD resolution.03:58
OmnipotentEntityAkiva-Mobile, if it doesn't then you generally only must remove it from /usr/local/bin03:58
OmnipotentEntitybut it depends on what it is of course03:58
_unreal_its a lack of support by the video card. but thats just one direction of many for solving your issue.03:58
Morpheaus_unreal_, if it was working before the update - and no hardware/enviromental factors occurred - then this shouldn't matter - if hardware did change though, your point is valid03:58
Akiva-MobileOmnipotentEntity: is that tough, or are all the files in usr/local/bin self contained?03:59
OmnipotentEntityAkiva-Mobile, depends on the source file.  I don't even know what we're talking about03:59
Akiva-Mobilemeaning that would it just be, "sudo rm /usr/local/bin/qtcreator03:59
WotWhere@OmnipotentEntity  what info do u need from glxinfo.. ?03:59

OmnipotentEntityWotWhere, does it say "direct rendering: Yes"04:00
OmnipotentEntitybretolius, exactly, you can download the package source and recompile on your system so it uses your libs instead of the ones included in sid, then install it04:01
OmnipotentEntityusing dpkg04:01
OmnipotentEntityAkiva-Mobile, I don't know off of the top of my head, I'd take a look in the Makefile under the install heading and see what it does04:01

evilsquelchAzharr, what happened when you tried?04:20
dr_willis!latest | bretolius04:20
ubottubretolius: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.04:20
dr_willisbretolius:  thats how 'rolling releases' do it. and ubuntu is not really a rolling release.04:21
MorpheausAzharr, you may need to install the package and force no depdency checks - you'll want to at least check to see what depdencies are required and manually install them...then run  dpkg --force-depends -i filename.deb04:21
bretoliusisnt ubuntu switching to rolling here soon?04:21

wildstrangethingHello guys, 3 of my Ubuntu 12.04 servers (including a fresh installation) have just been hacked and I've lost root access! Anyone know what happened?04:34
Morpheauswildstrangething, when was their last updates applied (security specifically)...04:35
wildstrangethingMorpheaus: I did not do that.. oops!04:36
erpowildstrangething: I would disconnect them from the network ASAP.04:36
Morpheauswildstrangething, there's your answer...04:36
erpowildstrangething: Especially if they contain sensitive customer data.04:36
wildstrangethingI'm retrieving the data now... i've lost root access.. only left with ftp access04:37
wildstrangethingto get the security updates, do I have to apt-get upgrade every week or so?04:37
Morpheauswildstrangething, use the recovery cd to get back in at least - or at grub drop to root shell - you should reinstall from scratch and disable any services that you do not need and harden the system - now that they broke in, they could have created backdoors where you cannot patch them in the system...04:38
Morpheauswildstrangething, every week is a good practice - you could also setup a cron job to do this to automate it if needed...04:38
beanremember, apt-get dist-upgrade will do kernel upgrade too.04:39
beanand other held back versions04:39
wildstrangethingbean Morpheaus: is apt-get upgrade sufficient or will u also do apt-get dist-upgrade04:41
Morpheausapt-get update && apt-get upgrade at a minimum - kernel exploits are a bit harder...but do exist...04:43
raddyHello Everybody04:44
raddyIs there any application for linux / ubuntu which would allow bluetooth dialing in nokia mobile phone?04:44
Jordan_Uwildstrangething: Just to reiterate, you *must* re-install these systems from scratch now that they have been compromised.04:47
Morpheaus^^ entirely agree with Jordan_U04:48
wildstrangethingJordan_U: Yup I'm reinstalling the OS right now04:48
wildstrangethingshould i do a apt-get update apt-get upgrade right after installing the OS and before installing the other apps? Or do the upgrades after installing my apps04:48
KM0201wildstrangething: i like to update/upgrade befre installing anything else04:49
Jordan_Uwildstrangething: Install all updates before making any services available over the internet.04:49
wildstrangethingapt-get dist-upgrade?04:49
KM0201apt-get update   apt-get upgrade  apt-get dist-upgrade04:50
aarcanewildstrangething, install a few basic apps that you need to use now, suhc as byobu or firefox, then do the updates while making minor tweaks or browsing facebook, then install the other packages you want.04:50
wildstrangethingoh they both do different things04:50
wildstrangethingits a web server, so I guess its ok i'll do the upgrades first04:50
raddyAnybody there?04:50
Jordan_Uwildstrangething: apt-get dist-upgrade should only be needed if something has gone wrong, you should check regularly that the apt-get upgrade is completing successfully, without any held packages.04:50
Morpheauswildstrangething, and if you really want to be safe - take an exact image of the system you're doing to use it for forensics...04:50
KM0201Jordan_U: that was really my main point.. if it's holding back packages, then run dist-upgrade04:51
aarcanewildstrangething, if you don't know the order of packages to install, are you sure you should be running a webserver?04:51
Morpheauswildstrangething, and do NOT change the root password - leave it as-is which is a hash that cannot be re-created by libcrypt04:51
wildstrangethingwhat do u mean by witholding back packages?04:51
wildstrangethingaarcane: i spend most of my time on web dev, starting to learn how to administer the server04:52
KM0201wildstrangething: sometimes you'll see (after running apt-get upgrade)... "No updates installed, but the following packages are available to be upgraded" (or something to that effect)... usually kernel upgrades, etc.. thats when you run apt-get dist-upgrade04:52
aarcanewildstrangething, just don't dive into production until you're comfortable with it :)04:52
Jordan_Uwildstrangething: Were you using any server side scripting, or just serving static pages?04:53
wildstrangethingaarcane: i got off cpanel vps a year ago, now playing with dedicated servers04:53
KM0201ubuntu server is really pretty easy.. i switched to OMV for my NAS, but ubuntu server is easy04:53
NateJonesHi everyone.. I would like to stop internet traffic if I get disconnected from the VPN... I'm getting an error explained on the pastebin: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5709554/  what can I do to solve it?04:53
Morpheausya - and figured out how to harden it and recover in this type of situation - running apache from a chroot may be a smart thing to look into...04:53
wildstrangethingJordan_U: I was using nginx with php5, mysql, postgresql, redis, postgis04:53
Morpheausor even run it in a QEMU environment...04:53
wildstrangethingMorpheaus: i always ssh in using root... bad practice?04:54
Morpheauswildstrangething, extremely bad04:54
NateJoneswildstrangething, bad bad bad practice04:54
aarcanewildstrangething, install your firewall and webserver first, configure the firewall to only allow ssh, then upgrade everything.  while upgrading everything, configure your webserver of choice, and when the upgrades complete, including any restart, finalize your webserver then enable ports for your webserver and ports of choice.04:54
Morpheauswildstrangething, I rarely use the root login - it's only at the recovery console - for all other tasks - sudo -i if I need it persistant or sudo "app"04:55
NateJonesHi everyone.. I would like to stop internet traffic if I get disconnected from the VPN... I'm getting an error explained on the pastebin: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5709554/  what can I do to solve it?04:55
wildstrangethingMorpheaus: i'll start doing that.. upon installing the OS, the web hosting company will email me the root password04:56
Morpheauswildstrangething, I would highly recommend reading this article for your next box: http://joshrendek.com/2013/01/securing-ubuntu/04:56
hanslandahello there...i cant install last nvidia drivers...a message like xorg server is running appears and i just cant install the drivers...anyone04:56
Morpheaushanslanda, 319 drivers?04:56
Ben64!details | hanslanda04:56
ubottuhanslanda: 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 ..."04:56
hanslandaMorpheaus, im not sure..i need the  last gt 430 64bits driver04:57
Jordan_Uwildstrangething: Then it's possible that they got in through a bug in your server side code. No amount of hardening or keeping up with updates can prevent someone from getting in if your own code is vulnerable. Security is comprehensive, so keep up with updates, follow best practices, *and* check your own code (and have at least one other person check it as well).04:57
wildstrangethingMorpheaus: looking into that article04:57
NateJonesso ehrrmmm anyone experienced with openvpn and ufw?04:58
wildstrangethingJordan_U: probably not an SQL injection... I have a server witwh a fresh ubuntu 12.04 installation and it got hacked too04:58
Morpheaushanslanda, for the stable branch - just install nvidia-current - sudo apt-get install nvidia-current04:58
wildstrangethingthats a server with nothing on it.. no apache/nginx/mysql04:58
Jordan_Uwildstrangething: Well the fact that the root password was sent in a plain text email in the first place is also concerning.04:59
Morpheaushanslanda, otherwise, you're in a territory where you need to manually install the drivers - you should be able to get by with nvidia-current04:59
wildstrangethingwonder how that empty server got hacked04:59
wildstrangethingJordan_U: right.. i change it right away04:59
hanslandaMorpheaus, when i do that in the nvidia settings and set 75hz refreshrate it changes to "auto" every reboot...and on display option under system settings it is always changing from "auto" to 75 hz too05:00
Noob98756Just installed Ubuntu for the first time, getting a lot of weird distorted graphics on startup05:00
NateJonesanyone experienced with UFW and OpenVpn05:00
hanslandaMorpheaus, i think its because the nvidia-current is not the right one05:00

Ben64!nomodeset | Noob9875605:01
ubottuNoob98756: 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 parameter05:01
Rushi. is there an alternative flash player for ubuntu 10.04 that works on face book?05:01
Ben64hanslanda: nvidia-current supports the gt430, you could also do the nvidia-experimental-31005:01
Morpheaushanslanda, need to know what version you're trying to get running...05:01
Noob98756Great, I'll take a look at it, thanks Ben and Ubottu05:01
nurowis there any way to hide the "Recent Files" stream from Unity?05:02
WotWhereThanks a Heap <Morpheaus>  it seems to be working now.. i think libxrandr2 did the trick05:02
Ben64Rus: 10.04 is only supported for the next ~10 days, you should upgrade before then05:02
MorpheausWotWhere, awesome to hear :)05:02
WotWhere:) Thanks again05:02
Rusthanks Ben64.05:02
hanslandaMorpheaus, didnt understand...what version im trying to get running....what distro u mean05:02
MorpheausWotWhere, np - enjoy!05:03
hanslandaBen64, well...it seems ok with nvidia-current..but every reboot it changes the vertical refresh like i said05:03
Morpheaushanslanda, nvidia releases versions of their drivers - 304.xx, 310.xx, 319.xx - you should be able to see the version that you want to download and install in the file or at the web site that you downloaded it from...05:03
NateJonesnurow, follow the steps @ http://paste.ubuntu.com/5709570/05:04
Rusdoes the plugin finder service 2 work?05:04
Morpheaushanslanda, I'm trying to figure out what version you're running so you can install it from ubuntu repositories which do not require you to drop out of X to install the drivers05:04
Ben64hanslanda: start nvidia-settings with sudo and write the configuration to the x config file05:04
hanslandaMorpheaus, Version:05:05
nurowthanks NateJones05:05
NateJonesyou are welcome nurow05:05
Morpheaushanslanda, from the terminal - sudo apt-get install nvidia-31005:05
hanslandaMorpheaus, Unable to locate package nvidia-31005:06
Morpheaushanslanda, if that doesn't work (it may be an xorg-edgers) - try sudo apt-get install nvidia-experimental-31005:06
hanslandaMorpheaus, yeap05:07
Ben64hanslanda: how did you install the drivers you are on right no05:07
hanslandaBen64, additional drivers option ...installed the recommended version05:07
hanslandaBen64, but already unninstalled05:07

hanslandaMorpheaus, Ben64 i dont think it worked..im with the experimental version...but i run a game here and my fps was too bad05:15
suhaibYa, just like Xchat05:17

Ben64hanslanda: "lshw -C VIDEO" what does it say the driver is?05:17
=== gratcy is now known as Guest43788
hanslandaBen64, http://pastebin.com/uaC7vmsn05:18
Ben64you're using the nvidia driver, success!05:19
falcomis it necessary to change default ssh port? for security concern05:19
NateJoneshanslanda, wooohooooooo05:19
NateJonesfalcom, I would change it to something like 6384505:19
NateJonesfalcom, to avoid being scanned for regular ports05:19
NateJonesfalcom, also disable root access05:20
hanslandaBen64, so why with this one i get 60 fps on a game and with the nvidia-current i get 125 fps05:20
NateJonesfalcom, and get something like denyhosts to automatically ban failed attempts to log into your box05:20
hanslandaBen64, i think i have to install nvidia-current...and try to config xorg.conf ...but im not good on that05:20
Jordan_Uhanslanda: 60 fps sounds like it's properly syncing to your monitor's refresh rate.05:20
falcomNateJones: assume im behind router.. my router configuration should handle that?05:20
Ben64hanslanda: 310 is a much better driver05:20
NateJonesfalcom, you need to do some port forwarding on your router05:21
Morpheausbah - 319 or go home :)05:21
Jordan_Uhanslanda: Any more than that is waisted, and non-sync'd 125 fps will look less smooth than sync'd 60 fps.05:21
Morpheaustotal sarcasm of course05:21
NateJones*** tried to solve my issue directly with #openvpn room but hahahaha they are not so friendly :(05:22
Ben64310 is where nvidia got awesomer for linux gaming. doubled performance in source engine games05:22
hanslandaBen64, so i have to remove this one and install 31005:22
Ben64hanslanda: you already have 31005:22
Morpheaushanslanda, no - you're at 31005:22
she_dyedhanslanda: you have to tweak xorg.conf using nvidia x server settings05:22
hanslandaBen64, experimental05:22
Ben64experimental is 31005:22
hanslandashe_dyed, can u help me on doing that05:23
Jordan_Uhanslanda: 60 FPS is perfect, don't try to "fix" something that isn't broken.05:23
NateJoneshanslanda, it should work properly... don't tweak your configs :)05:24
she_dyedonly if you learn to look at xorg.0.log05:24
she_dyedif that has you crying home to mama send back your nvidia now05:24
hanslandaJordan_U, 60 fps is perfect? my game supports 125 and on windows i play with 125 and with 60 its terrible to play...05:24
Jordan_Uhanslanda: What is your monitor's refresh rate?05:24
Ben64if you're really concerned about performance, you shouldn't have gotten a gt 43005:24
Morpheaushanslanda, vsync as Jordan_U stated05:24
hanslandaBen64 if i had money... im sorry05:25
hanslandaJordan_U, its 60 - 75hz ....now its set to 6005:26
Ben64what game is it? it's unlikely that you can notice a difference between 60fps and 400fps05:26
hanslandaBen64, Urban Terror05:26
Jordan_Uhanslanda: Do you know what refresh rate means?05:26
hanslandaJordan_U, not specifically05:26
Jordan_Uhanslanda: It's how fast your monitor changes the image on the screen. 60hz means that the picture is changing exactly 60 times per second.05:27
Morpheaushanslanda, try opening the "NVIDIA X Server Setings" which is on the Ubuntu menu - and try unchecking the "Sync to VBlank" setting on the OpenGL Settings tab05:28
bretoliusso I am trying to install bitlbee from source, and it was recomended I downloade this package from debian, recompile it, make a new .deb file and install that instead of trying to manage source installs by hand.  (on ubuntu 12.04)  which source file do I use though?  [bitlbee_3.2-1.1.dsc] or [bitlbee_3.2.orig.tar.gz] ?  http://packages.debian.org/sid/bitlbee05:28
hanslandaMorpheaus, ok...ill do that05:29
Jordan_Uhanslanda: If you change your refresh rate to 75hz you'll probably notice that your game will run at 75 FPS, because it's creating a new frame for each "frame" that your monitor displays.05:29
Morpheaushanslanda, this is standard practice - on my borderlands 2 install I have dual 670's and sync to the monitor for 60 fps constant...works very well and all the other fps above 60 fps just cause clipping issues05:29
she_dyednot the dsc05:29
Morpheaushanslanda, I would just leave it if it were me, but if you're trying to just compare fps to make yourself "feel" better, this is where I'd start...05:29
Morpheaushanslanda, and if you're serious on gaming - I'm sorry but Windows is what I use and I have never been fully satisfied with linux performance - partly because nvidia doesn't have as good of drivers (i.e. PhysX) as the Windows installation05:30
Morpheausit's not because of Ubuntu - but because of driver support through nvidia - just to be specific as I don't want to start a flame war05:31
hanslandaMorpheaus, wow!!! after unchecking Sync to Vblanck now its 125 fps!!!!05:31
hanslandaMorpheaus, many thanks05:31
Morpheaushanslanda, np05:31
Ben64have fun with images tearing :P05:31
Twenty-threehi, i came here earlier regarding a problem with booting, Trying to get access to GRUB didn't work (shift/ESC did nothing). "try ubuntu" from the Dvd worked but then I wasn't sure what to do. After doing scandisk i got access to GRUB without prompting it but once there I had no idea how to proceed05:31
Jordan_Uhanslanda: That's *worse* than synchronised 60 FPS.05:31
MorpheausBen64, yep...05:31
NateJonesanyone experienced with openvpn and ufw?05:32
hanslandaMorpheaus, Ben64 Jordan_U  so there is no solution unless i buy a new video card05:32
Morpheaushanslanda, now that you've seen it works - just leave it checked - it'll make the image so much better when gaming in full screen - you want the video card to update the screen at the same rate that your monitor does - i.e. 60 fps = 60 Hz05:32
Morpheaushanslanda, even on a top end video card - you _still_ enable vsync05:33
=== Elliott_ is now known as Guest1539
Ben64theres no point having higher fps than the screen can do, it just ends up looking bad05:33
Morpheaushanslanda, so you can have the most uber powerful video card on earth - you want it to output at maximum that your monitor flashes the image at you05:33
Jordan_Uhanslanda: Solution to what? You haven't presented any actual problem. Everything is working as well as it possibly can, or at least it was until you disabled vsync.05:33

MorpheausTwenty-three, hrmm - you're getting past my experience now - with grub I have a list of options I can select - I would use the "Try Ubuntu" again and follow something like this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair05:39
histo!grub2 | Twenty-three05:39
ubottuTwenty-three: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub205:39
wilee-nileeTwenty-three, So you would not bring grub up shift or esc that is in a partitioned install, nor will a live media fix it. You probably should use the ubuntu forum for fixing whatever the problem is, not many wubi users here knowing how to repair. On the forums though is a regular user.05:40
MorpheausTwenty-three, the "2nd option" describes the use of the LiveCD to fix it05:40
NateJoneswhy do I get a Debian themed grub? lol05:40
NateJonesI noticed that after some updates my grub shows Debian and looks way different than it was when I first installed ubuntu 12.0405:40

cfhowlettTwenty-three, I'm late to the party but I would inform/remind that wubi is being dropped ... for good reason.  Consider installing a true dual boot or virtualbox.05:42
wilee-nileeTwenty-three, Wubi has been discontinyed with the release scheduled in 3 weeks 13.04, so you may want to consider your options.05:42
Jordan_UNateJones: Did you install the desktop-base package?05:42
MorpheausNateJones, no sorry - I saw your posts earlier but do not use either :( - wish I could help05:42
histowilee-nilee: I know05:43
Twenty-threeWhen I got to that GRUB command line it said it was 1.99 ... something else :/05:43
Morpheauswilee-nilee, is 13.04 really scheduled for release in 3 weeks?05:43
wilee-nileeTwenty-three, You will not be repairing grub.05:43
NateJonesno worries Morpheaus.... yeah Jordan_U I installed the desktop-base but somehow I guess that probably it got updated from some repositories I added back then... but no worries it works good... I'm more concerned with my openvpn / ufw issue05:43
Twenty-threeubottu, I installed ubuntu on a computer that had windows already05:43

wilee-nileecfhowlett, Yes I know. ;)05:45
Morpheauswilee-nilee, yep - you're right - April 25th for the release date - wow time files...05:45
NateJonesthe metapackage you mean Jordan_U ?05:45
Rusis it possible to pay for updates/assistance for 10.04 after its support finishes in 10 days?05:46
Jordan_UTwenty-three: How did you install Ubuntu? By booting from an Ubuntu LiveDVD/USB or by running an application in Windows (Wubi)?05:46
wilee-nileeTwenty-three, here is the wubi wiki, just so you have an orientation to what you have installed. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide05:46
Twenty-threejordan_U: the latter05:47
Jordan_UTwenty-three: Do you have important data in your Ubuntu install?05:47
cfhowlettrus end of life means exactly that.  perhaps time to upgrade to 12.04?05:47
Twenty-threejordan_U: I don't have any data that I don't have stored elsewhere, just set ups of plenty of packages for work that I don't really want to set up again05:48
Rusthanks cfhowlett. it's juz that my machine has a heart attack using 12.04.05:48
Jordan_UTwenty-three: I highly recommend just doing a normal (non-Wubi) install of Ubuntu, you'll save time and headaches in the long run.05:48
cfhowlettRus, perhaps xubuntu or lubuntu 12.04 might not cause such issue.  xubuntu is LTS with 12.04 ...05:48
cfhowlettRus, and both are optimized for older/lower spec machiens05:49
histowilee-nilee: there was a factoid about migrating wubi but I can't find it atm.05:49
Jordan_UTwenty-three: You can keep what's left of your broken Wubi install while using your new normal installation, assuming you have enough free space on the drive.05:49
Twenty-threejordan_U: so, should I use the uninstall file in windows?05:49
RusWow. thanks for that cfhowlett. i'll download and try them.05:49
wilee-nileehisto, Twenty-three https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MigrateWubi05:49
wilee-nileehas to be working version though05:50
Jordan_UTwenty-three: Yes, eventually you'll want to run the Wubi uninstaller within Windows.05:50
wilee-nileeI would do a fresh install as suggested05:50
cfhowlettRus, I'd suggest xubuntu as it's LTS and IMHO possibly more stable.  It's also the foundation for UbuntuStudio ...05:50

Twenty-threewilee-nilee and Jordan_U, thanks, I'll try this when i get home in a couple of hours when i get home05:55
MKCoinHow can I prevent Ubuntu from caching as much memory as it does? I don't have a lot of ram and it's using too much, having swap issues.05:55
Twenty-threei may come back to pay you visit when i get stuck05:55
cfhowletthisto, indeed ... a low latency RT kernel.05:55
cfhowletthisto, needed for heavy duty sound/music recording ... not so much for other purposes05:55
MKCoinI changed swapiness already but I mean, what it caches in general05:55
MKCoinchanging the swapiness helped a lot, but it still caches too much and it makes it still sort of hit that limit when it needs to swap05:56
wilee-nileeMKCoin, How much ram do you have?05:56
MKCoin3.6 GiB05:56
Jordan_UMKCoin: If setting swappiness to 0 doesn't solve the problem then the problem isn't caching.05:57
MKCoindoesn't 0 prevent it from swapping entirely?05:57
histoMKCoin: No it will still swap05:57
wilee-nileeMKCoin, hmm I run a 64 bit install with 3 gigs with no problems, but I' not a gamer or use much that is a problem.05:57
histoMKCoin: swapoff will stop it from using swap at all05:58
Morpheausguake is so cool - love it05:58
MKCoinyeah, what I do periodically is turn of swap to sort of flush everything back into ram and then turn swap back on. I'll set swappiness lower, I guess05:58
Jordan_UMKCoin: With swappiness = 0 the kernel will evict all caches before resorting to using swap, but will still swap if needed to prevent an OOM condition.05:58
bertthehostMay I ask a question?05:59
Morpheaus!ask | bertthehost05:59
ubottubertthehost: 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 !patience05:59
MKCoinalright, that might work best for me. And I'm no gamer, I just use a lot of ram-intensive programs, often more than one instance at once, so it piles up quickly :p05:59
bertthehostOkay, so. I was wondering if anyone knows if I can connect to the servers on Mirc on this version of irc, seeing as ubuntu isnt compataible wit Mirc06:00
ubottubertthehost,: 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 ..."06:00

It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.06:34

Morpheausbest was not the right word - "options" I think is the right statement - in or not in software center as well...06:35

Jordan_Ugreyhatpython: Most chat clients that are not dedicated IRC clients handle IRC very poorly.06:36
ktosiekI'm not a driver anyway :-)06:37
greyhatpythonok poorly how?06:37
Myrttiit's not really an irc client, even the developers have said so. it lacks features and those features are then added back in with plugins and addons that make it more clumsy and insecure.06:37
she_dyedspecially the ones that began as IM clients =)06:37
greyhatpythonok which do you suggest now?06:38
Morpheaustotally agree with Jordan_U - just looking for options - mirc was always my favorate - xchat left something to be designed - wine with mirc works, but I'd like to stick to something native...I used to be a heavy IRC user, but haven't been in some time now...06:38

VotePenguinPartybut HOW?07:38
newkyunforutnately, this means I have to install Windows :/07:40

espereguis there a way to see which packages got updated in the last week and to revert back to the previous state?07:42
eigentlichnewky: you could always install Ubuntu inside Windows (wubi) or build a vm07:43
newkyI almost certainly will do that07:43
eigentlichpersonally i found wubi to be unstable and can lead to data corruption07:44
bazhangesperegu, downgrade packages after the fact?07:44
eigentlichwith vms i can burn it and push it out again07:44
esperegubazhang: yes07:44
newkythis is the first time I've done a major file transfer over USB307:44
newkydefinitely feeling the speed increase07:44
bazhangesperegu, you would be better off pinning before the fact. a downgrade is a seriously bad idea07:44
newkyI remember USB file transfers that would take days07:45
bazhangnewky, lets stay on topic please07:45
newkyI apologize07:45
bazhang#ubuntu-offtopic for chit chat please07:45
esperegubazhang: It worked since the install till I upgraded last friday. that is just a sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. it installed a new kernel and maybe nvidia driver. now the xorg that worked for a year does not work anymore07:45
bluebeatnewky: are u experiencing a freeze at the end of your transfers on ur 3.0 port?07:46
Ben64esperegu: how does it not work07:47
espereguBen64: the screens do not get rotated anymore07:47
espereguBen64: I think that xinerama and xrandr are in each others way or something like that07:48
espereguBen64: but as said thats since friday it worked for a year07:48
Ben64give more details and someone might be able to help you07:48
bluebeatben64: any suggestion to the problem im having?07:48
Morpheausesperegu: Intel HD graphics?07:50
histobluebeat: check a newer kernel07:50
espereguMorpheaus: nvidia07:51
espereguBen64: Morpheaus: here is my xorg.conf: http://dpaste.com/1058829/07:51
espereguthe screens do not get rotated07:51
Ben64more details, more! ubuntu version, nvidia version, 64 or 32 bit, video card, etc etc07:52
Morpheausesperegu: there was a person in here ealier on performance (painting of screen) and Intel HD 3xxx - not sure on your issue - there's was related to a newer xrandr that needed to be downgraded...07:53
Morpheausesperegu: but that doesn't sound related to your issue07:53
espereguMorpheaus: I think it is. I think xrandr is messing up07:53
espereguMorpheaus: I think before it was disabled and now still wants to be in the game07:54
Morpheausesperegu:  Well - if you think that's it - the person downgraded the package using synaptic (sudo apt-get install synaptic) and then used the Package --> Force Version to select a different version prior to the updates07:54
Morpheausesperegu: You can use this methodology for all your updates that applied (xorg had a bunch of updates as well) - you can see the list of updates in the Software Center and click on the "History"07:55
Morpheausesperegu: this may help you track the package that caused the issue and revert as needed - the other person reverted the libxandr and libxandr2 updates (iirc) - this may or may not be your issue - you can then at least revert other packages as needed...07:55
espereguMorpheaus: http://dpaste.com/1058833/07:55
espereguMorpheaus: see below that it first saids that it is probl disabled but later that it is enabled07:56
espereguMorpheaus: gonna check that history07:56
espereguMorpheaus: never used it. only commandline ;-)07:56
Morpheausesperegu: you may want to check this as well (disable xinerama): http://askubuntu.com/questions/14780/how-can-i-disable-xinerama07:56
espereguMorpheaus: but I need xinerama for multiple displays?07:57
Morpheausesperegu: I believe so - you may want to test with this just to see (firstly) to address the issue - then possibly revert xorg-common and xorg-xxx-core (something like that) to a prior package that you know worked...07:58
Morpheausesperegu: The point is to identify the exact reason - and removing Xinerama temporarily may help you find a RandR vs. Xinerama issue and then you can revert packages to see what's up...07:59
Morpheausesperegu: and...?08:06
Morpheausesperegu: note - it does sound like xrandr can do multiple monitors - if you google xrandr multiple monitor setup, you'll see many people disable Xinerama for multiple monitor support on the current versions of Ubuntu...08:07

mrwappiebluntno through the terminal09:55
mrwappiebluntjust sudo apt-get install wine09:55

maximilianohi guys, i just installed 12.04 as a dual boot and i previously used wubi. i'm planning to migrate wubi but i'm not sure about whether i need to migrate with swap or not (I don't know what is meant by swap)11:03
xzcvczxmaximiliano: swap uses hdd to provide additional (slow) memory11:04
xzcvczxmaximiliano: swap should be 2x ram11:04
maximilianooh, is it advisable to use that then? or rather necessary?11:05
xzcvczxmaximiliano: advisable, if you use hibernate it shifts the ram and stuff off to swap to be able to power down11:06
maximilianoif i changed my mind later on, can i undo this swap or is this space permanently allocated?11:07
xzcvczxmaximiliano: well its just a partition on the drive11:07
xzcvczxmaximiliano: but does 10GB really matter with the price of storage these days?11:08

maximilianoxzcvczx: "/dev/sda5 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro)" does it help?11:41
xzcvczxmac_: because we are trying to make you see the point that what you want to do is highly insecure and we are recommending better ways to do it11:41
Nmbr1mac_: i understand what you are asking. what we are all trying to tell you is a. putting the password in the script is dumb and b. there are better ways to do it11:42
xzcvczxmaximiliano: so you are trying to unmount the root device of the os you have open?11:42

nyuszika7hah, good idea12:27
slinnkyxzcvczx, uh, you mean like a gubuntu ? nah12:27
nyuszika7hI should've gone for openSUSE, it saves the boot sector and lets you restore it from YaST :P12:28
Nmbr1slinnky: i generally just don't use ubuntuone12:28
nyuszika7herr, another question then12:28
slinnkyxzcvczx, it doesn't really need one..... unity and gnome-shell run fine next to each other (unity is just a shell on top of gnome)12:28
nyuszika7hhow can I access the GRUB menu if the timeout is set to 0?12:28
Ben64there is an UbuntuGnome12:28
nyuszika7hwtf, screen went black while upgrading12:28
BluesKajleolove, you could try disablibg the onboard gpu in the bios in favour of the discrete one but that's chancy if they are tied by load detection . That's all i can suggest .12:28
nyuszika7hoh, just turned off because idle12:28
Ben64nyuszika7h: mash the shift button12:28

nyuszika7hyes, I know, but I didn't run anything myself12:30
nyuszika7hthe update manager decided to randomly lock it in the middle of the upgrade process of aptitude (I guess it was not using it)12:31
nyuszika7hThe application Software Updater has closed unexceptedly.12:31
nyuszika7hI guess my fault for using raring12:32
duckstephow can i install new themes? i'm using gnome 3 vanilla without all of the ubuntu stuff12:32

supertoughif you don't clean out them dust it will kill your system components over time if your system doesn't dissipate them heat out.13:05
cyberporkthe fan is ok but it work on 6000 rpm13:05

pagiosand i lost it13:07
pagioshow can i recover my system13:07
ActionPa1snippagios: this is why you shouldn't set root password13:07
ActionPa1snippagios: but you seem to know better13:08
pagiosso how can i recover now?13:08
ActionPa1snippagios: it is not advised or supported, sudo gives you all the access you can ever need13:08
ActionPa1snippagios: why did you enable root?13:08
pagiosfor shortcuts...13:08
pagioswas lazy to wrtie sudo everytime :P13:08
theadminpagios: You can use "sudo -i"13:08
pagiosanyways is there a way to recover now?13:09
cyberporksorry but it isn't a way to use speedfan under ubuntu?13:09
ActionPa1snippagios: you can configure your OS easily to use sudo etc and you do not need to enable the root password at all13:09
theadminpagios: Do you have a LiveCD?13:09
slinnkypagios, I'm with you man... ubuntu is stable enough to run in root instead of user for day to day shit13:09

ActionPa1snippagios: don't set root passwords again, ok13:10
Dark_lightI'm apt-ignorant, how do I remove a package with all of it's dependencies?13:10
adamkpagios: Boot off installation media, mount the / filesystem, chroot into it, and change the password.13:10
theadminpagios: Boot it, then chroot to your main install and lock the root account again: passwd -dl root. The recovery will then work as normal.13:10
theadminDark_light: apt-get remove package13:11
theadminDark_light: APT won't allow unsatisfied dependencies, so that's automatic13:11
ActionPa1snippagios: omgubuntu has a nice guide called 'sticking it to grub', instead of manipulating grub after the chroot, you can set your user password and log in, then lock root down like it is supposed to be13:11
pagiostheadmin: your method does not require changing the root password i understand?13:12
Dark_lighttheadmin: that didn't do the trick, eg I installed freetuxtv which installed vlc as a dep but did not remove it13:12

CorySimmonsI thought testparam was bundled with the Samba package?13:14
ubottuPackage/file testparam does not exist in quantal13:14
PiciLartza: because you are likely using sudo apt-get upgrade, you need to use dist-upgrade.13:14
Pici!dist-upgrade | Lartza13:14
ubottuLartza: A dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.13:14
ActionPa1snipCorySimmons: not testparm13:14
theadminCorySimmons: It's "testparm".13:14

LartzaWhy does not Ubuntu handle removing old kernels, or does it? How?13:20
slinnky #ubuntu+113:20
cfhowlettLartza, removing kernels is not something to be done automagically ...13:21
slinnkyyeah you need the kernel13:21
Lartzacfhowlett, I've never had problems with Arch where I had multiple kernels in /boot13:21
cfhowlettLartza, and the majority of the time, ubuntu has no such problems either.13:22
Lartzacfhowlett, So why do I have two kernel versions in /boot now?13:22
LartzaMajor update or something?13:22
cfhowlettLartza, because the old one will remain until you delete .. .which you should NOT do.  Always maintain at least one old kernel in case a new one frugs your system13:23
cfhowlettLartza, kernel updates are a common fact.  usually painless ... but not always13:23
LartzaShouldn't the packages be tested to not frug up? ;) But yeah, thanks for the explanation. Didn't think of it that way13:24
theadminLartza: That's just how Ubuntu handles it. In Arch, a kernel upgrade is an upgrade to the "linux" package, no more. In Ubuntu, linux-image-* packages are metapackages. When they upgrade, their dependencies change, but the old ones don't get removed -- this is for protection against breakage.13:24
cfhowletttheadmin, did you just say what I was thinking, only smarter and more sensible?13:25
Lartzatheadmin, Luckily I've never had a messed up kernel update, only some self compiled kernels ;)13:25
theadmincfhowlett: Maybe13:26
BluesKajone can always remove 'old kernels ' manually if desired and nothing wiill break IME13:27
CorySimmonsSorry, Pidgin froze. Did anyone answer my question? :*(13:27

BluesKajJuJuBee, did you install grub in the mbr/default  ?13:43

theadminjohn_doe_jr: "*.mp4" will help, methinks13:44
john_doe_jrdr_willis: well I have to rename all the files with spaces13:44
dr_willisjohn_doe_jr:  thats a common issue with such tasks.  also i tend to use find to generate/print out the commands to do the move/renameing - so i can then see what its doing.13:44
theadminjohn_doe_jr: Take it in quotes13:44
dr_willisjohn_doe_jr:  with spaces in file names.. its the quoteing thats often the issue13:44
theadminjohn_doe_jr: Also you *might* need to replace - with \- (escape it) in your regex. I can't remember if it's a special or not13:44
JuJuBeeBluesKaj: I believe so13:44
dr_willistheres dozens of scripts/ecamples out there online about removeing spaces from filenames13:45

dr_williscould be its working.. and taking time13:49
JuJuBeeBluesKaj: a message about GPT and only 1 partition?... should be many partitions...13:49
john_doe_jrI think it has something to do with missing the \; @ the end of the find command13:49
jribjohn_doe_jr: so then you should figure out if it actually is working but taking a long time and if it's not, then you should determine if your issue is with the find command or with the rename part of your command.13:49
kolaracdnCan someone help me out. I am trying to get a script to run on my computer when someone connects to the system via ssh/telnet. How can this be done?13:50

john_doe_jrjrib: this is what I have now: find . -type f -name "*avi.mp4" -exec rename -n "s/ /-/" *.mp4 \;13:50
dr_williskolaracdn:  a script that does what?13:50
BluesKajJuJuBee, yeah , windows usually has 3 , and linux  depends on how many you created foor it13:50
john_doe_jrjrib: the -n is just to test the output13:50
jribjohn_doe_jr: i mean it's probably doing something.  But it's not what you want to do exactly.  Read your rename command.  What does your rename command do in words?13:50
kolaracdnit makes the system beep to let people know that it is being remote into13:51
jribjohn_doe_jr: for example, you might try putting "echo " before "rename" and see what happens13:51
kolaracdni have the script i just need it to run when people console in13:51
dr_williskolaracdn:  you could put the command in the bash init scripts in /etc/13:51

jribjohn_doe_jr: right now it's saying "*.mp4" and you would rather have the filename there.  I don't see your command on that page.  Check find's actual documentation. Run "man find", then press "/", type out "-exec" and hit enter.  You then use n and N to cycle occurrences of "-exec" in the man page13:55

cfhowlettwwwdotcom, try changing your themes to trip the display configurations13:58

wwwdotcomok let me try13:59
john_doe_jrjrib: there is only one space in each file13:59
jribjohn_doe_jr: ok13:59
dr_willisAlways test find command containing exec by using -ls instead of -exec to see if the files selected are the files you wish to process. This is especially important if the exec option contains rm command or some other destructive command.14:00
LartzaOh righttt... the stupid topbar :P14:00

reinActionPa1snip: It does recognize the VGA monitor correctly, but now suddenly the DVI monitor is not recognized. is there a way to force it to a higher resolution?14:00
jribjohn_doe_jr: try it and see (no that is still not exactly right)14:00
xcasexBluesKaj: huh?14:01
john_doe_jrjrib: the -n option to rename just shows me what will happen but I don't know what's wrong with it but I appreciate the help14:02
BluesKajxcasex, huh? what ?14:02
jribjohn_doe_jr: you probably need '' around your braces (so you should have '{}') and the "*.mp4" is not doing anything for your rename command14:02
wwwdotcomcfhowlett: I did that and it didn't work. One thing i want to let you know is after exiting the game my screen resolution changed to 800x600 i guess. Then i typed  xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1024x768 in terminal to revert it back.14:02

icedwaterShould I remove the nouveau driver though?15:42
tgm4883Psil0cybin, yes15:43
Psil0cybinokay, could you than tell me if this simple script I used to test my own websever, might have a hidden code...I looked over it and everything LOOKS really fine as its small and pretty straight forward15:43
tgm4883Psil0cybin, isn't that kinda obvious. You said you knew it could do everything the user could do15:43
Psil0cybinwell i didnt think it could linger, for me to sudo15:43
tgm4883Psil0cybin, yea, it's pretty trivial for it to do that15:44
Psil0cybintgm4883, could you look over at this REALly quickly and tell me if it does anything bad, I dont think so as its straight forward and its just getting something from a URL, and echoing a bunch of commands15:44
xeno_am I connected?15:44
Psil0cybinnot getting as in downloading but sending information to google15:44
tgm4883Psil0cybin, it bothers me that it says   "echo "[*] Still attacking `echo $urlclear`""15:44
le_colaOh Hai15:45
mleighPsil0cybin, if you want the script to not be able to sudo, you would need to take away sudo privs for that user account15:45

rokohi all16:11
tgm4883BluPhenix316, If you are using the nvidia driver, you should have an xorg.conf16:12
rokocan i ask someone how i can set permission on my /var/www folder?16:12

BluPhenix316tgm4883: know where it might be?16:12

ActionPa1sniproko: then run:  gksudo nautilus     and you can copy and paste files as you wish16:13
ekiwokroko, ctrl+alt+f116:13
adamkIt's possible the nvidia driver is being specified somewhere under /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/16:13
tgm4883BluPhenix316, are you sure you are using the proprietary linux driver?16:13
quemroko: open a terminal, type "man chmod". it's quite concise and explains it well.16:13
BluPhenix316yeah it shows the nvidia splash screen when X starts16:13
ActionPa1sniproko: you can press ALT+F2 and use the GUI to run the app, no need for terminals :)16:14
BluPhenix316and when i run nvidia x settings it tells me the version of the driver running16:14
quemroko: then you have "chown" to change ownership, and "chgrp" to change group.16:14
adamkBluPhenix316: Check the files under /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/16:14
Nmbr1roko: you can change the owner and group together using chown user:group16:15

merpnderp1Does 12.04LTS default with a firewall? I just installed mongodb from the repo, but just realized it might be listening to the world.18:31
tgm4883merpnderp1, the firewall is not enabled by default18:32
tgm4883sudo ufw enable18:32
WHAT_UP1is it normal to get "No GSettings schemas are installed on the symTrace/breakpoint trap" when updating? i can't seem to start any new programs (including a browser)18:32
failuremerpnderp1: sudo apt-get install gufw18:32
failuremerpnderp1: after go to settings and run firewall18:33
merpnderp1tgm4883: so how do people normally run services?18:33
alfredoneed help18:33
merpnderp1failure: I'm not on the desktop. this is a virtual.18:33
tgm4883merpnderp1, what do you mean?18:33
tgm4883merpnderp1, you enable the firewall and configure it?18:33
failuremerpnderp1: oo, ufw enable as tgm4883 says :)18:33
betraydservice service-name start if thats what u mean18:33
merpnderp1But is that normally what people do? Or should mongo just be configured to not listen to external ports?18:34
betraydnot for fw or mongo18:34
llutzmerpnderp1: configure the services to listen only at ports/addresses they need to18:35
merpnderp1llutz: I thought that was more the debian philosophy, instead of relying upon the firewall.18:35
merpnderp1which is what I was ham fistedly trying to ask.18:35
llutzmerpnderp1: i firewall is not to hide misconfigured services18:36
failurellutz: sadly it is :P18:36
merpnderp1llutz: ah, it defaults to binding to :D18:36
tgm4883llutz, eh, it kinda is18:36
messa4is there any supported ubuntu (LTS) with 2.x kernel?18:36
llutztgm4883: its not (by purpose)18:36
tgm4883llutz, what is a firewall's purpose?18:37
merpnderp1coming from the redhat world it is scary not having a firewall……but it makes sense after you get used to it.18:37
LS\MFTHi, is Unetbootin safe to burn Fuduntu to an USB pen-drive using Ubuntu?18:37
llutzbetter to lock a door than to put a curtain in front18:38
trismWHAT_UP1: try: alt+f2, run xterm (since it doesn't use gsettings), and then run: sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/;18:38
messa4any expert here?18:38
tgm4883llutz, terrible analogy18:38
messa4which ubuntu is with 2.x kernel?18:38
trismWHAT_UP1: I managed to reproduce that error by deleting the gschemas.compiled file and the last command reproduces it (though your problem may be deeper)18:38
merpnderp1llutz: couldn't the firewall act as a layer of security in case your properly configured service has an exploit?18:39
messa4any expert here?18:39
merpnderp1Then there is a curtain over your locked door :P18:39
tgm4883messa4, 10.04 would have a 2.6.x kernel18:39
llutzmerpnderp1: sure, but you still should configure your services "right" (as restrictive as possible)18:39
messa4tgm4883: is it still supported?18:40
tgm4883messa4, and it is LTS and supported on the server until 201518:40
failuremerpnderp1: thats more of a IPS thats feeds the firewall with drop/reject rules18:40
messa4tgm4883: thank you buddy!18:40
merpnderp1failure: IPS?18:40
tgm4883llutz, well yes, I completely agree with that18:40
merpnderp1failure: that's what ufw is?18:41
tgm4883merpnderp1, no18:41
failuremerpnderp1: no :P18:41
failuremerpnderp1: apt-cache search snort18:41
merpnderp1failure: oh man….this is starting to sound like a lot of work. I'll just trust that the vanilla install of mongodb, bound to, is safe enough :P18:43
merpnderp1my luck, I'd install ufw and lock myself out of the server.18:43

messa4is apt-get official ubuntu package manager ? or there is some other? [so many of them :/]18:54
ElsharYes, you can install aptitude which has some more features but there's no real need to18:55
ubottuaptitude is another terminal-based front-end to APT. You may encounter problems on multiarch installs (11.10 and higher) as aptitude cannot currently handle the same package with different architectures being installed at the same time. See http://pad.lv/831768 for more information.18:55
messa4llutz: was aptitude also used in Debian?18:55
llutzmessa4: yes18:55
ElsharIf that was ambiguous, the answer was yes, it's the default package manager for ubuntu18:55
messa4llutz: how old is it? more then 5? [i just forgot :( ]18:56
llutzmessa4: old, too old for multiarch :(18:56
ubottuAPT is the Advanced Package Tool, which together with dpkg forms the basic Ubuntu package management toolkit. Short apt-get manual: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGetHowto - Also see !Synaptic (Gnome), !Muon (KDE) or !Apper (KDE)18:56
messa4i know18:56
wilee-nileemessa4, You caught the bots info on aptitude I assume. ;)18:56
messa4was aptitude abalible [out of the box] for debian like in 2006?18:57
messa4i just forgot which one i was using back then :( [so many years]18:57

merpnderp1looks like the ufw package for 12.04 isn't configured correctly.18:58
messa4any expert here? does aptitude comes from Ubuntu project- or it was widly used before ubuntu: in debian?18:58
merpnderp1mising the /etc/default/ufw file18:58
llutzmessa4: it comes from debian18:58
messa4ok thx18:58
llutzmessa4: "apt-get changelog aptitude"18:58
messa4llutz: i dont have linux18:59
messa4can someone told me what are the major diffrences in ubuntu since 2006?18:59
tgm4883messa4, this is starting to sound an aweful lot like homework18:59
llutz!ot | messa419:00
ubottumessa4: #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!19:00
tgm4883and I don't like homework19:00
Walexmessa4: it would take too long time, but really major: different default GUI, multiarch support19:00
messa4Walex: no more gnome?19:00
messa4back in then it was gnome 2.x19:00
Walexmessa4: GNOME is optional.19:00
messa4so what is now used?!19:00
Walexmessa4: an Ubuntu developed desktop environment called Unity.19:01
tgm4883Gnome is still used19:01
betraydany reason you need to go back in time messa419:01
messa4betrayd: i wasnt using ubuntu/debian since 2006 so i was wondering what i missed. i till live in 2.4 era19:02
llutzmessa4: you missed nothing.things worked then, and they work now.19:03
tgm4883llutz, +119:03
messa4llutz: does ubuntu support CLOUD and APP?19:03
messa4just kidding19:03
CanadianPiratemessa4, A lot has changed. Specifically Ubuntu developed their own DE, Synaptic package manager has changed to an actual Software Center that is easy to use, UI redesigns19:03
messa4i hate tose all apps shops and stuff19:03
CanadianPirateYou can still use apt and stuff19:04
Picimessa4: give it a try and see, we can't go through everything that has changed in the past 7 years here.19:04
messa4Software center is just neat GUI for apt-get ?19:04
tgm4883!download | messa419:04
ubottumessa4: Ubuntu installation CDs can be downloaded from http://releases.ubuntu.com - Mirrors can be found at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Mirrors - PLEASE use the !torrents to download !Quantal, and help keeping the servers' load low!19:04
llutzmessa4: for apt, not apt-get19:04
CanadianPiratemessa4, apt-get is a program, apt is a protocol I think19:05

ubottumessa4: #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!19:05

tgm4883messa4, please take this to the off topic channel19:05
messa4tgm4883: stop spamming19:05
tgm4883this is not support19:05

wilee-nileeubuntu222, #ubuntu+1 is the 13.04 channel.19:14

CanadianPirateBastion is a game that they sell on the software centre19:14
messa4Can someone give me some example of "APP" from Unity Software Shop. (name). ANd explain me - is it just normal .deb package or what makes it "app"? [or its just naming ]19:16

zymasterHey, I am having a problem with my audio in Ubuntu 12.10 running on an Alienwawre M14x. It's just not playing at all, I was wondering if anyone could walk me through fixing it. Thanks21:56
nomotrism, as far as i know i didn't. i wil check the file path. i know nothing about apparmor at all.21:58
G0dican you hear me i cant hear you21:59
nomotrism, i dont have one for chrome. i have one for chromium though. do you know of any tutorials that i can check on apparmor. the ones ive seen assume you are a sec wizard.21:59
bekksG0di: We cant hear you, but we can read you.21:59

tgm4883dlam, what version22:02
nomobekks, ok because when i did ctl-alt-f1 to investigate further right after i turned off apparmor and could run google-chrome it said i couldnt update or download any packages and id neer seen anything like that in bash before22:02
G0disudo apt-get install libemecached422:02
dlamtgm4883:  Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS  lucid22:02
nomobekks, just assumed that bc id never seent that message before.22:02
bekksnomo: So could you pastebin the entire error message?22:02
tgm4883dlam, libmemcached4 isn't available in 10.0422:03
k1lNewber: press the windows key and type "terminal"22:03
dlamsomehow its installed on this box -_-22:03
dlami guess maybe it was manually installed22:04
nomobekks, i restarted my computer. ill will turn apparmor off again.22:04
tgm4883dlam, doesn't look like it's offered in any supported version of Ubuntu. 10.04 had libmemcached2, 11.10 has libmemcached622:04
tgm4883dlam, my guess is that it was in 10.10 or 11.04 and someone forced a package install22:04
nomobekks, i just disabled apparmor and you are correct i didnt get that warning in bash this time. how do  turn on app armor again with restarting the computer?22:05

nomobekks, i will paste bin it. hold on... and i will restart the computer...http://paste.ubuntu.com/5711657/22:09
