Mio-chanI have, wilee-nilee02:09
dlami have a sorta old box with a package "libmemcached4" installed.   i'm trying to installing on a new 10.04 lucid VM,  but there's no packages with that name!  anyone got any ideas?02:09
wilee-nileeMio-chan, What do you see?02:09
nightdemon666RileyGuy, check out  http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1160456&page=71   i suggest you go through that and make sure you have toyed with the recommendations. apparently there is a concern with case sensitive filesystem organization. hence why a common fix is renaming files... JFS seems to be consistent with relative fixes regarding your "could not load library client" error.02:10
Mio-chanWilee-nilee: sda1 is pretty much empty. sda2 is nice and filled, it's where my windows files are. sda3 is empty, sda4 is empty.02:10
Mio-chanWilee-nilee: Boot flag is also set to sda202:10
wilee-nileeMio-chan, So the sda2 is not showing as unallocated?02:11
nightdemon666i dont even play games often on any system lol so i never have the greatest recommendations, but i can google the heck out of anything ;) i should be a certified googler :P02:11
Mio-chanWilee-nilee: Correct02:11
wilee-nileeMio-chan, So is plan b the lilo install? I wonder if windows needs a chkdsk, have you kept it in good order, defragged and chkdsk's so often?02:12
Mio-chanWilee-nilee: Yes I have. I believe the reason of all of this is that I've wiped the MBR on accident.02:13
uabn93hi, is it a good idea to apply the infinality font patch to ubuntu? would it create a better font rendering than what is already provided with ubuntu's own font patches?02:13
Mio-chanWilee-nilee: Yeah, Plan B is lilo install. Plan C is getting a windows iso and repairing it.02:13
echinos_I have an executable... and I can't run it. Says "permission denied". My user owns it, and I chmod 777'ed it. It won't even tab-complete.02:13
nightdemon666moi-chan, mind if i chime in? whats the cut and dry on your situation?02:14
wilee-nileeMio-chan, When the script showed syslinux in the mbr, lilo should work, the bootrepair may just be the files in the OS.02:14
wilee-nileeI never use the bootrepair however it is quite popular Mio-chan02:14
Mio-channightdemon666 - after wiping arch (after a failed install), Windows fails to boot, and I've also tried to install Ubuntu, and it fails to detect Windows as well.02:15

KatsumeBliskMio-chan: Have you tried using the Windows install disk to reinstall its boot loader?02:16
KatsumeBliskMio-chan: I know the commands if you need to do it.02:16
nightdemon666Mio-chan, yep, sounds like a mbr hose or windows bootloader hose... i would make a windows recover disk, and repair via command line that way. just my experince with it.02:17
KatsumeBliskMio-chan: That may fix your problem with Ubuntu not seeing Windows.02:17
Mio-chanKatsumeBlisk: my computer did not ship with a disk but I'm in the process of writing a windows 7 iso to my usb. what are the commands?02:17
boydoyhi! i just want to ask.. i have a android phone and i want to change to ubuntu OS, this is possible?02:17
thund3rstruckfixmbr: http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/17521-how-fix-mbr-through-command-prompt.html02:17
nightdemon666echinos_, try ls -l /path/to/exec/file and see if you actually have the rwx for it02:17
KatsumeBliskMio-chan: So you go to a command prompt (i don't remember the exact way) via repair and "bootrec /fixmbr" and "bootrec /fixboot" should reinstall the Windows boot loader.02:18
nightdemon666 boydoym like ubuntu on the phone?02:18
echinos_nightdemon666: yep02:18
nightdemon666Mio-chan, yeah! what  KatsumeBlisk said! :D02:19

semitonesif you have a slow computer, and you install a kde app, do all the extra libraries that are installed slow the computer down?02:26
nightdemon666semitones, by slow, you mean... CPU? RAM?02:27
nightdemon666i have a slow computer running kde, and what makes my computer slow is when ram gets used up.02:27
nightdemon666although, i must say, kde takes up more ram im sure than lets say,,, lxde02:27
KatsumeBlisknightdemon666: Yeah. I think KDE is "slow" only because of RAM. It's fast on any modern computer.02:28
ninjalacnew pc can handle kde now right ?02:28
KatsumeBlisksemitones: It depends on the app. Does it want KDE libraries or Qt?02:29
KatsumeBliskninjalac: Yeah. I ran it fine.02:29

saegeoffany of you guys into wayland or do you think Mir will be king?02:32
semitonesKatsumeBlisk: I'm trying to come up with general things to avoid to keep a fast system. Are KDE libraries heavier than Qt?02:32
zykotick9wilee-nilee: that's become a famous photo for sure.  ;)02:33
nightdemon666semitones, if you want to use kde on an old pc thats fine, just know that ram will get used up faster than with a more light weight DE like LXDE. however, i seem to get more out of my PC by adding the vm.swappiness line to my /etc/sysctl.conf file and setting it to 0. however, i recommend you read up on that too, but i do notice that basically the OS seem lesser likely to swap with that seting thus less ram used up aft02:33
saegeoffif you want a fast system, you should use Arch... not ubuntu02:33
KatsumeBlisksemitones: It depends. People saying using KDE apps on GNOME or vice versa are slow, but it's only really a problem when they use KDE libs or GNOME because that brings in a good chunk of the DE itself.02:33
semitonesgnome libs?02:34
KatsumeBlisksemitones: It'd be better performance-wise to use just Qt/GTK apps02:34
semitonesgtk != gnome?02:34
KatsumeBlisksemitones: Both KDE and GNOME have libraries that are extended off of Qt and GTK respectively.02:34
zykotick9semitones: kde uses qt... just sayin'02:34
KatsumeBlisksemitones: Nope. Gtk stands for GIMP Toolkit actually.02:34
KatsumeBlisksemitones: GNOME is just the biggest DE (besides Unity now) that uses GTK. LXDE and Xfce are other DEs that use it.02:35

nightdemon666Mio-chan, your BOIS does allow you to boot off of USB right??? the MBR of the harddrive shouldnt be holding you back on USB boot or am i off target here!?02:37
Mio-channightdemon666, it does, I've done it earlier today.  However, it is not even showing the USB in the boot order.02:38

nightdemon666Mio-chan, i dont know about those other suggestions, but if baffles me that you are tryingot get a very basic thing to work.. i'd point the finger at the BIOS at this time. you need the BIOS to recognize the usb drive02:40
she_dyedoh sometimes it shows as 'removable'02:41
=== daniel is now known as Guest25631
Mio-channightdemon666 - I agree with you on this point. The USB mounts on my desktop just fine....my laptop on the other hand, BIOS does not see it. USB does light up though02:41

wilee-nileeKatsumeBlisk, You guys are not giving a great bit of help here.02:42
KatsumeBliskwilee-nilee: How is suggesting something else besides BIOS to load the USB drive not helping?02:43
nightdemon666Mio-chan, are you sure that it isnt being registered as another internal harddrive.. ive seen that before too. have to go in the BIOS and actually tell it to boot from the second generated "internal drive" thats actually the flash drive.02:43
Mio-channightdemon666 - Good suggestion although I've actually tried that. Just my physicalhard drive.02:43
wilee-nileeKatsumeBlisk, Many have problems with the bios not booting, this other boot menu works, suggesting plop and other things are not logical, no one had =s confirmed the usb is correctly loaded or suggeted this other menu.02:44
nightdemon666wilee-nilee, i assume you are refering to the typical F12 key when you say boot menu.. correct?02:45
Guest19753Mio-chan: what kind of bios?02:45
wilee-nileeand a correctly loaded usb02:45
nightdemon666well, Mio-chan says the BIOS isnt even seeing it. stuck until thats resolved :/02:45
Mio-chanGuest19753 - stock BIOS on my HP laptop. Pavilion g7. Nothing fancy. Just a boring BIOS.02:46
wilee-nileenightdemon666, So plop and using another computer will fix this.02:46
Guest19753does the usb show up in OS?02:46
KatsumeBliskwilee-nilee: I consider the F12 menu part of BIOS.02:46
nightdemon666wilee-nilee, so thats the other thing.. totally correct! i'll bet the flash drive isnt properly set up as a boot device thus BIOS over looks it...02:46
Mio-chanGuest19753 - Yes USB shows up ony mother computer02:46
wilee-nileeKatsumeBlisk, It's not02:46
KatsumeBliskwilee-nilee: So my suggestion was valid because I assumed it wasn't showing up in that menu.02:46

nightdemon666Mio-chan, you are using the same usb drive you have booted from before correct?03:00
dr_willis!grub | sach03:00
ubottusach: 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/Grub203:00
SachKatsumeBlisk: thanks, but why do I get the bootloader?03:00
dr_willisSach:  thats what boots the os and lets you controll the booting process03:00
Mio-chanGuest19753 Guess I'll try that. Nightdemon666: Yes, correct03:00
KatsumeBliskSach: It gives you options to choose which operating system to boot. Windows has one too, but it's hidden when you only have one version of Windows on your computer.03:01
dr_willisSach:  'grub2' gives you a nice menu and various options. such as vbooting other  Os's it may have found.03:01
Guest19753Mio-chan: have you maby by accident deleted some files or f...ed up your win partition?03:01
roseysdaddoes anyone here use qbittorrent?03:01
Mio-chanGuest19753 - I know for a fact I f...ed up the MBR03:01
Guest19753it should not mater03:02
Guest19753mbr is now grub?03:02
Mio-chanGuest1973 - Though, I never touched sda203:02
Sachdr_willis: when I installed ubuntu on a different laptop, I didn't get this boot menu.  Why is that?03:02
KatsumeBliskSach: Do you still have Windows on this computer ?03:02
dr_willisSach:  you did have grub2 on it.. if you only had one os on the laptop.. it hid grub by default.03:02
Guest19753sda2 is where windows is?03:03
nightdemon666Mio-chan, i believe if the MBR is messed op then the grub booting windows option would not work no?03:03
Mio-channightdemon666 - I tried using lilo and it failed to boot into Windows, Windows Boot Manager did come up, though Windows itself did not boot.03:04
dr_willisGrub installs itself to the MBR of the HD.. that then hands off to booting the other os's. it replaces the windows MBR03:04
Guest19753dr_willis is correct03:04
Sachthanks, dr_willis03:04
Mio-chandr_willis then what I did, was wipe the MBR of the HD.03:04
dr_willisthe windows repair cd's with the fixmbr, and fixboot commands would replace grub with the windows mbr.03:04

brwolfgangMio-chan:  As i said i arrived late =], what's your problem?03:07
Mio-chanbrwolfgang: So, after trying to install arch, I accidentally wiped out my HD's MBR. Now, I can't boot into Windows, nor can I install Ubuntu - Ubuntu returns "ubi-partman has crashed"03:08

Guest19753ok install ubuntu on sda1 and windows will most probably be back in grub. just be careful and manually choose the right partition sda1 for ubuntu and leave swap as is03:09
brwolfgangMio-chan:  I guess the same solution I use to reinstall GRUB after a Windows install will work for you03:09

rhizmoerdm: there was a split. what's your question?03:14
Guest19753Mio-chan: Rescatux found on link above is the simplest solution to check if windows is intact03:16
Guest19753what puzzels me is the partition error you mentioned03:17
rdm_Sorry, not sure if anyone replied.  It froze for the 40th time tonight and I had to hardboot.  GPU Hang..03:18
shuhi all, a simple question to ask, how can I know "who has switched to root account via sudo or su on my linux box?" thank03:18
rhizmoerdm_: what's the deal with your video card?03:18
rdm_I don't know? It's just a laptop?03:18
brwolfgangMio-chan:  You're going to fix Ubuntu to after that install Arch?03:19
Guest19753Mio-chan: when you install ubuntu and manually set partition choose sda1 as you said, then make it the root folder-> / and ext403:20
Mio-chanOkay, back - brwolfgang  - I can't even install Ubuntu. My primary goal right now is to fix the MBR and Windows.03:20
Mio-chanBrwolfgang - Anyway, I mounted sda2 via my livecd, and all my files are intact03:20
dr_willisshu there should be some logs in /var/log about what sudo is doing.. it has logging features.03:20
Mio-chanHowever, I still can't boot it xD03:20
=== pie is now known as Guest57381
brwolfgangMio-chan:  You could jump straight to Arch linux installation "install GRUB" step, it never failed me to fix GRUB issues03:21
dr_willisyou could do a ubuntu instggall to a spare usb flash drive.. and its grub should see the windows partions and boot them.. if they are correctl.. of course if  the issue is windows is missing files needed to boot. then grub wont help. back to the windows repair type cds..03:21
Guest19753Mio-chan: you can install ubuntu. se previous comment from me. are you sure you made right settings when manually setting it up for partition?03:21
brwolfgangMio-chan:  just saying =]03:21
Mio-chanGuest19753 - the install partition function simply won't work. xD03:22

Guest19753Mio-chan: Rescatux->http://www.supergrubdisk.org/ it will find windows if it is not fucked03:23
rhizmoerdm_: well, if it's hardware, that won't work, and if it's GUI or something, you'll be able to step through and/or reconfig from the command line03:23

rob_pKorbit: pwconv doesn't recreate the passwords for each account although it will recreate /etc/shadow. I thought you had to recreate account passwords after running pwconv... but I guess if passwd is throwing token errors, you're stuck!  I'm running out of suggestions at the moment...04:59
dr_willisthisnick:  what?05:00
Korbitrob_p: thanks. yeah, I've tried everything I found on google at this point and I'm afraid the only thing I can figure out to try next is format/reinstall. I really don't want to do that even though I was able to make a backup copy of /home/.05:00

rob_pKorbit: I wouldn't go that far yet! There's a solution...take it as a challenge to figure it out! :)05:02
rob_pKorbit: Some of the best learning I've ever gone through is by NOT just formatting/reinstalling when strange and obsure problems came up...05:02
wooHello, I got kismet to work but only when I am connected to an access point.  Using Ubuntu 12.04 64bit.  I have card details if needed.05:03

Korbitas satisfying as that would be.05:04

Korbitrob_p: "PAM unable to open dlopen(pam_gnome_keyring.so): /lib/security/pma_gnome_keyring.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"  That seems significant.05:22
Korbitrob_p: followed by: "lightdm: PAM adding faulty module: pam_gnome_keyring.so"05:22
rob_pKorbit: Strange...05:24
Korbitrob_p: those lines get repeated occasionally all throughout the log file (oldest entry is april 7), so I'm not sure if it's a symptom of a larger issue, or directly related to my inability to login.05:25
rob_pKorbit: I wonder if PAM is hosing you... Just a guess, but maybe you need to update the PAM authentication method.05:25
rob_pKorbit: Can you run pam-auth-update05:26
Korbitrob_p: classic PAM.05:26
rob_pKorbit: Try running that and selecting your method of authentication for your system...05:26
Korbitrob_p: yes, but I'm not sure what should be selected. there are 3 entries, Winbind NT/Active Directory authentication, [empty line], and ConsoleKit Session Management05:27
starkillerdoes anyone know a tool that would help me orginize or take fully control of my routewr:P?05:29
rob_pKorbit: You are looking for Unix, unless you are specifically using one of the other methods...It's a standalone box and uses local authentication, I presume?05:29
Korbitrob_p: only the first and third entries were marked, so I tried marking the middle (blank) entry, and that didn't seem to do anything. it was unmarked when I reopened pam-auth-update05:29
starkilleryea XD o have 1 really good router , but the configuration and stuff its a mess05:31
Korbitrob_p: yes, standalone. There are only those 3 entries listed. I tried unmarking the Winbond entry and now I don't get an error from passwd, but it also doesn't ask me to enter a password. That doesn't seem right.05:31
mradotcan someone help me05:31
mradotwhere can i find the tarball for libgtk1.2-dev and libgtk2.0-dev05:31
rob_pKorbit: There should be one for Unix.  You can select others, but that one is crucial for local authentication via /etc/passwd /etc/shadow...05:32
starkillerwinblind XD? ill  get on it XD05:32
Korbitrob_p: yes, it seems odd that that isn't listed. I don't think that would be related at all to my computer running a dualboot with Win7. The specific distro I'm using is Lubuntu 12.04 64-bit. Could that be the source of the difference?05:34

KorbitLartza: no, using the same password as I have been since I built the system about 6 months ago06:05
l057c0d3rfrom what im reading here you can change the password from the recovery console.. u just have to make sure the filesystem is mounted read/write..   by default it is mounted read06:06

NisrocHi, I've got a problem. I'm trying to chmod a all dir's sub dir's and files in a directory but not the directory it self. I've done a bit of research and I've found two commands: "chmod -R 777 ." but this chmod's the root directory, and "find . -type f -exec chmod 655 {} +" but this does not chmod any directory or sub directory. Could I change one of the two commands to chmod all files and sub dir's but not the root dir?08:40
histojames9821: ps aux | grep programname08:41
histojames9821: or use top or htop08:41

NisrocMonkeyDust: it's just place holder08:41
histoNisroc: the type f in your command will only change files08:42
histoNisroc: you could run it again with type d to chmod directories08:42

goodgirljessI need them ungrouped, its annoying trying to find the right browser window as-is09:22
dr_willistheres alternative task-switchers you can also try out  -  super-tab might also be set to one by default that works differntly09:22

bodhi32Anyone know how to use readpst? http://www.enlightenment.org/ss/e-516fbc113b5688.37630866.jpg09:26
histoHonvai: goodgirljess's instructions will work if you don't need anything on the drive and want to format it with ntfs or fat32 in windblows09:26
goodgirljesshisto, its a ps3 drive they want to use on the pc, the files arent useful if its not meant for a ps3, and you cant salvage the data09:26
histobodhi32: I would google pst thunderbird  or search the thunderbird help files.  I'm sure there are many users on the net that have needed to load pst files in thunderbird09:27
dr_willisgoodgirljess:  you may need to use gparted to repariton the hard drive first.. then format it to whatever filesystems you want09:27
goodgirljessdr_willis, it was for Honvai , not me :)09:27
goodgirljesswas telling him how to allow windows to use the drive, he had aske09:27
histogoodgirljess: I did not catch what they wanted to format it with ntfs and that Honvai was they.  Nor did I realize Honvai was trying to do all this in windows09:27
goodgirljessyep, no big deal histo09:28
goodgirljessIm not good at linux, but someone asked how to do something in windows and THAT i know :D09:28
dr_williseven in windows. he might need to delete the partions first.09:28
goodgirljessdr_willis, this disk manager will tell him a disk needs to be formatted for use09:28
bodhi32histo, thanks, thunderbird works for windows pst files however ill do a google pst thunderbird search.09:29
histogoodgirljess: assuming it's partitioned09:29
Honvaii try. thanks goodgirljess09:29
dr_willisive had disk manager definatly NOT know what to do with some of my linux partioned drives. ;)09:29
histobodhi32: or askubuntu.com maybe better results09:29
goodgirljessdr_willis, assuming windows 7 or 8, it recognizes that linux filesystems are linux filesystems and doesnt prompt the user to destroy them lol, the ps3 filesystem will show up simply as garbage to the windows disk manager though09:29
bodhi32ok will do, thanks all for the support! I got to go, getting late09:30

HonvaiWhat is the command to format hitachi hts543216a7a scsi disk device in windows cli?09:37
histoHonvai: is the disk partitioned?09:37
dr_willisnabblet:  just a guess.. one is a GUI that depends on the other for the functionality09:37
histoHonvai: you can use diskpart or partdisk whatever it is in the windows command line09:37

ActionParsnipalimj: again, yes, but if this particular system likes samba, we can use it. Can't we11:03
alimjDarrell: 1st, Then you want DLNA. You would require to connect both TV and Laptop to a router. Or you can make your Ubuntu a router. Both TV and Ubuntu should be on the same network.11:03

alimjActionParsnip: You are right11:03
ActionParsnipalimj: so its not a bad question to ask11:03
alimjAnyway, Darrell left11:03

oOok so i have managed to get my new ubuntu install running and tried this command to mount the drive sudo -i  fuseext2 -o ro -o sync_read /dev/c/c /mnt/lvm211:04
MonkeyDustvic  how did you install ubuntu?11:04
ActionParsnipContrapunctus: if software centre works then we can isolate the issue to Synaptic, if its bad there then we know there is a wider issue11:04
ContrapunctusActionParsnip: And search works in SS.11:04
KM0201MonkeyDust: was just wondering the same thing.. i think thats a wubi install11:04
vicmonkeydust: live usb11:04
oOi get the error teh folder contents could not be displayed. you do not have the permission nexessary to view the contents of "lvm2"11:04
MonkeyDustKM0201  that's my thought too11:04
ActionParsnipContrapunctus: sounds like a bug in Synaptic, is the OS fully updated?11:04
MonkeyDustvic  is that a wubi installation?11:04
KM0201vic: did you use the "install inside windows" option?11:04
ContrapunctusActionParsnip: Except, for some reason, the Install button in SS is _always_ grayed out.11:04

mattniedry[1]: you can easily add /usr/bin/python /home/user/Desktop/1.py &  /usr/bin/python /home/user/Desktop/2.py to /etc/rc.local14:16
jribdry[1]: define "disappears"14:17
PeterGriffinjrib: Thank you. I will try them. :))14:17
jribdry[1]: you mean you add the entry to startup applications and then later that entry is no longer in startup applications?  Or do you mean something else?14:17
mattniedry[1]: I have forgotten the second &14:18
dry[1]jrib: Icon (starter) of one of files is gone each time from Additional startup applications14:18
jribdry[1]: note that mattnie's suggestion would start your scripts as root14:18
jribdry[1]: is it consistently the same file (1 or 2)?14:18
mattnieif you do not set up it correct14:18
mattnieyou can set a user14:18
mattniewhich runs it ;)14:19
dry[1]mattnie, jrib: I'll check that.14:19
jribmattnie: it's not ideal14:19
mattniejirib: you can run it as normal user? so why it is not ideal?14:19
mattniedry[1]: if you want to run it form a other user just "su <user>" befor command14:20
jribmattnie: runs at a different time than startup applications.  Maybe you need access to the graphical environment or other environment settings for the user that only get set once you login, it's also less organized than placing the scripts in their "proper" place14:20
dry[1]jrib: it is consistently one from files (doesn't matter which kind - but the last one on the list = last one added)14:20
jribdry[1]: check what's going on in ~/.config/autostart (there should be a .desktop file for each of your entries)14:21
rupertHi, I'm trying to restore an Ubuntu install using dpkg get/set-selections and apt-get dselect-upgrade. But when I do apt-get dselect-upgrade it installs 32bit versions of the packages, but both the new and the old system are 64 bit. What's going wrong here?14:21
mattniejrib: you are right!14:22
jribrupert: what does the output you got from dpkg --get-selections look like?14:22

rupertjrib: although the source system was upgraded to 12.04 from 10.0414:24
rupertjrib: but that was already done a while ago14:24
jribrupert: uname -m; dpkg --print-architecture   (on the new system) returns?14:25
theadminI'm having an issue here, it appeared after the last kernel upgrade. Sometimes, Ubuntu freezes on boot and just shows a black screen, nothing can be done apart from hard reset. It works most of the time, though. What could be the issue?14:25
rupertjrib: x86_64, amd6414:25
jribrupert: can you pastebin some sample output that shows it will install i386?14:25
theadmin(Oh, 'tis Precise)14:25
rupertjrib: ok hold on14:26
rupertjrib: btw, I've also noticed after running --set-selections not all packages are actually selected. For example, I have libapache2-mod-wsgi set to 'installed', but running --get-selections again after --set-selections shows no mention of libapache2-mod-wsgi14:27
jribrupert: strange14:28
evil_andyHi, I'm using 12.04LTS and I can't figure this issue out: No matter what desktop manager I select when I log in, it will work just find (and remember the selection) until I reboot. then it always reverts to Unity. How do I make the window manager selection permanent (even if just for my user)14:31
dry[1]jrib, mattnie: There is only one file each time in ~/.config/autostart directory. Just closing Startup Applications Preferences is enough for the python file rejection from the list of startups.14:31
jribdry[1]: ls -ld ~ ~/.config ~/.config/autostart14:32
she_dyedevil_andy: you select fromlogin screen?14:32
ActionParsnipevil_andy: unity isn't a WM, it's a shell. You probably mean Compiz14:32
wilee-nileeevil_andy, Can you be more precise, what desktop manager and how you are doing it would help.14:32

ActionParsnipevil_andy: do you use autologin?14:34
evil_andyActionParsnip, I don't14:34
jribrupert: could be dselect-upgrade in 12.04 wasn't multi-arch friendly in 12.04?  I am just guessing, don't know for sure14:34
ActionParsnipevil_andy: the last session should be remembered for each user14:34
evil_andyActionParsnip, and it is if I just log-out and log in again (without selecting the session). But as soon as I reboot, it reverts to Unity14:35
=== ip is now known as Guest42582
rupertjrib: hmm, is there any way to 'force' apt choosing for 64bit packages? Or is there anything else I can do?14:35
jribrupert: what does the dpkg --get-selections output look like after you used set-selections?14:36
theadminrupert: Well, you can define the architecture when using apt-get manually, e.g. "sudo apt-get install packagename:amd64"14:36
ruperttheadmin: ok, but that's only for installing per-package, I'm trying to do a dselect-upgrade14:37
jribrupert: the two workarounds I thought of were for you to edit the selections file and append :amd64 and to temporarily disable multi-arch.  I would do a little more research first though before doing either of these (there may be a better resolution and it's likely documented in ubnutu or debian's bug tracker)14:37
theadminrupert: Not too sure what that even is to be honest14:37
john_doe_jrI would like to read each line of a text file in bash….I'm trying to use the bash read command but can't figure it out..can anyone help me with this?14:37
rupertjrib: --get-selections after --set-selections doesn't show any mention of i386, but it's also missing a lot of packages, like libapache2-mod-wsgi that I mentioned earlier14:37
jribrupert: some change does take place though?  i.e. there are some new packages getting set?14:38
rupertjrib: let me verify14:38
evil_andyAhh, I wonder if it's caused by /etc/X11/Xsession.d/65compiz_profile-on-session, it sets the COMPIZ_CONFIG_PROFILE to 'ubuntu' it appears14:38
dry[1]jrib: .config/ drwx------ & .config/autostart drwxrwxr-x14:38
jribdry[1]: this is not what I asked14:39
ActionParsnipevil_andy: in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf do you have: user-session=ubuntu14:39
jribrupert: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt/+bug/879324 might be a good starting point (I have not read through the comments yet)14:39
ubottuLaunchpad bug 879324 in apt (Ubuntu) "apt-get dselect-upgrade prefers multiarch over native" [Medium,Triaged]14:39
evil_andyActionParsnip, I do indeed...14:39
ActionParsnipevil_andy: or try: sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults --session gnome-shell14:40
evil_andyActionParsnip, I'll comment that out and see what happens. Thanks!14:40
jribrupert: at least one comment mentions that disabling multiarch, doing the dselect-upgrade, and then re-enabling multi-arch worked for him.  So if you just care about a workaround, that may be sufficient14:40
ActionParsnipevil_andy: or change the file to choose the session you want, or comment out, lots to go at14:40

ActionParsnipchro: use the startup items app in dash...14:43
chroI want on unity not gnome14:43
ActionParsnipchro: unity is a shel for Gnome, Unity doesn't replace gnome14:43
wilee-nileechro, You can set a delay on the start in the startup manager.14:43
ActionParsnipchro: again, in Dash in Unity, search for: startup   and you will see the app14:43
ActionParsnipchro: by using Unity you are also using Gnome desktop14:44
=== gkastner is now known as RunsWithScissors
ActionParsnipwhat is funt though is run COmpiz without desktop, then Unity stands alone like Fluxbox etc. No Gnome then :)14:45
rupertjrib: I did a diff now between before --set-selections and after, and the only thing that changed was the deinstallation of linux-image-3.2.0-29-generic and the accompanying headers package. I'll try to disable multiarch now and see if the other packages are properly selected this time.14:46
jribrupert: ok, though I'll be away for a bit14:47
dry[1]jrib: 'ls -ld' output: http://dpaste.com/1063471/14:47
jribdry[1]: then it's not a permissions issue.  Someone else may be able to help you.  (You may try copying the .desktop file that you have for 1.py in ~/.config/autostart and creating the one for 2.py yourself)14:47

ShapeShifter499if I encrypt my hard drive does it get decrypted everytime ubuntu runs?17:12
RageRiotit's odd because my gaming mouse (CYBORG  RAT 9 ) doesnt work at all17:13
TK-999It provides protection when the disk is physically stolen or somebody tries to access it outside of Ubuntu.17:13
TK-999Once you are logged in, the file system is decrypted.17:13
ShapeShifter499so if I use my system like a server, where it runs 100% of the time, then there is no point in encrypting my drive17:13
ShapeShifter499TK-999, it would provide no protection from network attacks correct?17:14
jribShapeShifter499: well you could still turn of your system...17:14
TK-999It would not.17:14
TK-999whoops, sorry; it's https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BasicSecurity17:15
ShapeShifter499jrib, I'm going to run email, bnc, and maybe social networking tools that keep track of my online data17:15
ShapeShifter499so this system has to run near 100% of the time17:16
jribShapeShifter499: for example, police could knock on your door, you could then turn off your system to protect your privacy17:16
jribShapeShifter499: it depends on what you want to do really.  If you don't care that anyone with physical possession of the drive can read its contents, then don't encrypt17:16
ShapeShifter499jrib, I see but if I do a remote reboot of my encrypted server how would I decrypt it in that situation?17:17

nemoHey guys.  I'm trying to migrate someone to a new machine.  I wanted to identify what packages they installed on the old one.17:20
billy_ran_awayWhy am I getting this? http://cl.ly/ONJb But fuser and lsof say nothing is using /dev/md0...17:20
nemoIs there somewhere in /var I'd look, perhaps, to find out what was explicitly installed, instead of as a dependency?17:20
nemoI'm looking over the apt history trying to figure out what I would look for, but hoping there's an easier way.17:21
jrib!clone | nemo17:21
ubottunemo: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » (this may cause problems with multiarch before 12.10) - See also !automate17:21
The_GhostAlso, anyone know of a good tutorial on how to remaster the ubuntu ?17:22
nemojrib: cool thanks17:22
nemojrib: heh. bot still recommending aptitude eh17:22
jribnemo: to search for packages that were installed manually it's probably the easiest way.  If you want to avoid it, look into apt-mark (iirc)17:23
nemojrib: well. don't have it installed on any of my machines, and AFAIK isn't recommended anymore.  wasn't aware of apt-mark.  thanks.17:23

nemojrib: ah-hah17:28
zAo^How can I install Unity on x/lUbuntu without needing to install the whole dummypackage?17:28
betraydRageRiot: if you can get a different desktop to run, preferably not compiz, see if the mouse works then. If you know how, add a user to use a differenmt desktop, without compiz17:28
nemojrib: ok. but apt-marks showmanual still shows wildly different results from the aptitude command17:29
nemojrib: and a much shorter list17:29
nemoI'm inclined to go w/ the more conservative one :)17:29
betraydthat log tells us that compiz.desktop is failing and shifts to SW rendering RageRiot17:29
RageRiotI see17:29
jribnemo: I know that in the past they used two different systems (for a long time only aptitude would track manual and auto).  I sort of assumed they eventually used the same system, but that may not be the case (so installing things with aptitude manually would leave apt-get none the wiser and vice versa).  I'm just speculating though17:30
RageRiotit's odd because --replace makes it work fine. all the 3d works etc17:30
nemojrib: hrm... actually. sorry. my bad. diff was being confused by whitespace17:31
nemojrib: the aptitude command appears to have a ton of padding whitespace at the end, apt-marks no17:31
betraydRageRiot: the -replace works then? pastebin the log before the -replace17:31
nemojrib: anyway. thanks. core thing was this manual flag. had no idea about :)17:31
jribnemo: good to know17:31
nemojrib: shame it tags install packages. was hoping to keep things semi-clean on this fresh install. ah well.17:31
RageRiotI'll rebot17:32
nemoperhaps I can do something w/ the log to filter17:32
jribnemo: you could generate the list on a pristine install and then subtract those packages17:32
RageRiotbetrayd, how can I copy a log inside the terminal '17:32
WhereIsMySpoonHi, I'm getting these errors in the console after launching gedit: http://pastie.org/764725317:33
nemojrib: well. prob is this machine is pretty old.  my thought is the list of installed packages shifts over time. and prob based on architecture.  I'd wanted to do a clean install of whatever version that was on this machine I guess17:33
RageRiotwould it be .old by any chance ?17:33
betraydRageRiot: we'd look for a pastebin site with an 'upload file' feature17:33

* theadmin hardly understands anything, it's almost 1AM20:22
TacoGeekFresh install of 12.10 ubuntu, I've done almost nothing with it.  My main login is sysop (as ubuntu and root don't seem to go well together).  I've installed lamp^ using apt-get, everything installed fine.  Now I'm trying to change the mysql password, and am having nothing but problems.  I can log into mysql with NO password, but whenever I try to do anything, it says ''@'localhost' doesn't have permission...  What's the default us20:22
BodsdaTacoGeek: It asked you for a password during the install20:23
theadminTacoGeek: root, and the password should have been prompted during the MySQL setup.20:23
theadminTacoGeek: The mysql root and the UNIX root aren't the same thing :P20:23
TacoGeekthe lamp setup didn't seem to give me a password option.  :/  Maybe I need to back-track to fresh ubuntu install and try that again, but I don't recall getting the option.20:24
theadminTacoGeek: Try sudo dpkg-reconfigure mysql-server-5.5 (or whichever is there on your Ubuntu version)20:25
bekksTacoGeek: Which lamp setup? Did you install the lamp software to /opt/?20:26
bbbbbi "skipped network settings" on my ubuntu install. Now I want to enable my nice cards, eth0 and eth1. where can i find documenttation on that?20:27
TacoGeektheadmin:  omg, it was that easy?!  I really REALLY don't think that the lamp install gave me that option.  I might just re-do the install from scratch to make sure, and if not, would that be a bug?20:28
BodsdaTacoGeek: the reconfigure effectively reruns the install scripts, so whatever happens would have happened during initial install20:29
theadminTacoGeek: It wouldn't if you installed from the GUI, because that skips several configs falling back to some defaults I don't even know20:29
Bodsdaoo, really?20:29

TacoGeektheadmin:  that may be what happened then.  I was pulling my hair out, reading every guide, and was wondering why some guides had those old-school shell "gui" look, and others didn't, it was just the sudo apt-get install lamp^ with nothing else.20:31

shambatI'm running 12.04 Server, trying to clean out my boot partition, but whatever command I try, apt-get tells me I need to install dependencies for the new kernel, and there is no room for those. How can I remove the old kernels that I'm not using without installing a new one? This is what I tried so far: sudo apt-get -f purge $(dpkg -l linux-{image,headers}-"[0-9]*" | awk '/ii/{print $2}' | grep21:23
shambat-ve "$(uname -r | sed -r 's/-[a-z]+//')")21:23
miksdapt-get --purge remove linux-image-you-don't-need did work for me..21:27
shambatI get this message: http://dpaste.com/1063948/21:28
miksdand apt-get -f install does whatays not enough space?21:30
ozzloyhow do i get adduser to not ask for full name, room number, etc?21:30
miksddoes what? says not enough space?*21:31
jpdsozzloy: Use useradd?21:32
jpdsozzloy: But note that it's more lower-level.21:32
ozzloyuseradd doesn't create a home dir21:32
shambatmiksd, yeah it says I cant install cause of no space :21:32
ozzloyhow do i create home dir with /etc/skel and such21:32
ozzloyi could do that too21:32
miksddelte manually some stuff from boot then21:32
KatsumeBliskozzloy: You can just hit enter and skip those prompts21:32
KatsumeBliskozzloy: For example, I don't give it a room number because it's pointless for me.21:32
miksdthen do -f install and then remove unused kernels with apt-get21:32
ozzloyKatsumeBlisk, that's not a solution21:33
shambatmiksd, what files are safe to delete from there?21:33
ozzloyKatsumeBlisk, i need the process to happen unattended21:33
ozzloythanks though21:33
jpdsKatsumeBlisk: I think he's trying to automate it by not making it interactive.21:33

enigmuriaticour network has a reputation for being a little bloated and iffy with connections (although it's reasonably fast otherwise)21:42
enigmuriaticthings like Android phones work though, you'd think it'd be fine21:42

carreraHello Everyone!  :)22:32
Dr_willisrecompiling the kernel to disalbe bluetooth is a little extreme. ;)22:32
carrerais 13.04 an LTS version too?22:33
Dr_williscarrera,  no22:33
kvothetechDr_willis: lol it'll be off if it can't possibly turn it on :)22:33
mnackcould anyone here please inform me as to the difference between ubuntu netinstall and hdmedia installations?22:33
minetapehey dr_willis can you help me?22:33
zykotick9Dr_willis: more then a little i'd say ;)22:33
carreraDr_willis, thanks. Are LTS editions released every 2 years then?22:33
Dr_williscarrera,  i think 14.04 is the next lts.22:34
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; with the exception of 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), which will be supported for 5 years on the desktop. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Precise (Precise Pangolin 12.04)22:34
Dr_willisI rarely worry about lts or not. ;)22:34
kyrre_zykotick9, i cant get away with the feeling that the driver is glitching. how can i make sure evrything is alright?22:34
CroomeHey, I have a problem. I have ubuntu 13.04 and I use xrdp, because of a bug I need to edit keyboard shortcuts in gconf-editor in metacity, but in 13.04 metacity is gone and I can't seem to find where to edit those keyboard shortcuts. Any ideas?22:35
Dr_willis!find dconf-editor22:35
ubottuFile dconf-editor found in app-install-data, dconf-tools, libdconf-doc22:35
mnackcan anyone help me i just have a simple question about the different versions22:35
Dr_willisI thought gconf-editor got replaced by dconf-editor22:36
mnackshouldn't be too tough22:36
Croomeohh so I should use that instead?22:36
Dr_willisIm not even sure gconf-editor exists in 12.04+22:36
Dr_willis!find gconf-editor22:36
ubottuFound: gconf-editor22:36
Dr_willisguess it does. ;)22:36
zykotick9kyrre_: if you use propritary nvidia, expect good performance - but unexpected results ;)  i used propritary nvidia for a long time, it's great for gaming etc.  but bad for freedom / stability IMO.  are you SURE you are using the right driver for your card (1st thing to verify for sure)22:36
mnacknetinstall vs hdmedia. using unetbootin. can anyone shine some light22:38
Dr_willisive never heard the term 'hdmedia' befor mnack22:38
ubottuUbuntu can be installed in lots of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall - Don't want to use a CD? See http://tinyurl.com/3exghs - See also !automate22:38
mnackwell shit22:38
Dr_willisnetinstall - a tiny cd that downloads most everything from the internet as it installs22:38
mnackcuriouser and curiouser22:38
mnackoh ok22:39
jmnozis it possible to "sleep" individual monitors on a dual monitor system?22:39
mnackand hdmedia?22:39
Croomestill... where do I find keyboard shortcuts in dconf-editor?22:39
Dr_willisive never heard the term 'hdmedia' referd to by any ubuntu iso/images/versions mnack22:39
zykotick9Dr_willis: debian uses that term22:40
mnackand live is the desktop version..?22:40
Dr_willisLive is the normal desktop version.22:40
GammaX-2ok so i think I got my parallel port card installed b ut I cant find the address to point my program at it...22:41
zykotick9technically, debian uses hd-media...22:41
Croomeyayy found it thank you22:41
peyujmnoz what do you mean by "sleep" ?22:42
jmnozpeyu: make it go dork22:44
jmnoz*dark :)22:44
jmnozlike a black screensaver I guess22:45
jmnozwhich can be toggled22:45
kyrre_zykotick9 are u still there?22:45
jmnozfor individual screens22:45
carreraI've a laptop with an Nvidia GPU and 2 SanDisk 480 GB SSDs.  I'm currently running 12.04 with Gnome Classic. The drives are RAID 022:45
=== Guest93709 is now known as Red_M
peyujmnoz: I don't think you can turn off only one monitor if you're using 2 in dual view, you have to "unextend" in settings > display22:45
carreraI don't like Unity and zeitgeist. Can I configure RAID 0 with xubuntu?22:46
carreraor does it have to be the alternate or server editions for RAID22:46
jmnozpeyu: that's a shame, it's needlessly disruptive22:47
ubottuEn la mayoría de los canales de Ubuntu, se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español entre al canal #ubuntu-es; escriba "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y presione intro.22:48
jmnozpeyu: someone suggested using a black fullscreen image on one screen. It's a bit sad I might have to resort to that :)22:48
peyujmnoz: well if you're using only one monitor, then just turn on the other in dsplay settings22:48
deitarionDoes anyone know how to disconnect the numlock LED from the numlock modifier in X11 so I don't have to choose between having a numeric keypad and remaining un-blinded by an eye-searingly bright blue light? (Or at least reliably trigger that X11 bug which causes the light to indicate that numlock is OFF rather than on)22:49
carreraDr_willis, I have an nVidia GPU and 2 x 480 GB SSDs that I want to config with RAID0. I also don't like Unity and zeitgeist. Which is the best edition for me?22:50
jmnozpeyu: say I'm watching a movie on one screen (external from laptop). I'd like to be able to blank the laptop monitor but easily be able to pop in to look something up and then go back to dark laptop monitor again22:50
zykotick9kyrre_: am now ;)22:50
ozzloyi'm trying to make byobu start with irssi as per the instructions here: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/quantal/en/man1/byobu.1.html#contenttoc6 but they seem to be ignored22:51
zykotick9ozzloy: my recommendation, forget byobu, and just use tmux directly for multiplexing.  YMMV.22:51
peyujmnoz: in this case maybe the only thing to do is to set a black desktop background22:51
kyrre_zykotick9, cant get rid of the feeling that nvidia-96 is glitching. "no video mode activated" or sth similar is displayed when im booting, then the display get on and of like three time when i log into the gnome-classic session on 12.0422:52
GammaX-2can someone please help me find the address of the parrallel port I just installed?22:52
carreradoes 13.04 desktop support RAID or do I still have to go with alternate?22:54
jmnozpeyu: yeah maybe22:54
zykotick9kyrre_: nvidia-96, you've got an old card.  expect issues.  I've personally had close to 0 success rate using those drivers.  i hope you have better luck them me!22:54
mnackso netinstall vs live? on an acer aspire one netbook, via unetbootin/usb install22:54
kyrre_zykotick, oops, sorry version is nvidia 304.88. running a nvdia wuadro fx 1500.....22:55
kyrre_zykotick9, oops, sorry version is nvidia 304.88. running a nvdia wuadro fx 1500....96 was the first driver i used  when i hooked myself on linux back then...22:56
zykotick9kyrre_: lol - that's a much different story then ;)  BUT i've never had a quadro card.22:56
zykotick9anyone, isn't nvidia 310 the new one, helped by steam?22:57
kyrre_zykotick9, for example when i watch a video and goes to fullscrenn the display "blinks" (on&off) for quic, this is starnge didnt have these things in 10.0422:57
zykotick9kyrre_: honestly, 10.04 was the last ubuntu i used myself...  that was "solid", everything after is... not IMO (YMMV or in this case, not)22:59
zykotick9kyrre_: i hope someone else in the channel can help you, best of luck.  i'm off.23:00
kyrre_YMMV? are u sing mint now? i loved 10.04, but wanted updates which will be running out end of this month23:00
kyrre_Your mileage may vary"23:00
zykotick9kyrre_: i'd say mint is worse then ubuntu, so no i don't use that (I also don't use arch ;)23:00
zykotick9kyrre_: yes, Your Mileage May Vary ;)23:01
kyrre_zykotick9, so what are u suggesting/using/ dont u wanna say be4 going off .)23:01
deitarionFigured it out. Basically, if anything uses XTest to press NumLock, the virtual XTEST keyboard LED changes state but the NumLock flag change bubbles up to the virtual master keyboard... so all I have to do to get the behaviour I want is run this on login --> "numlockx off; xdotool key Num_Lock"23:01
zykotick9kyrre_: i'm sorry, i don't have anything TO say....  but, best of luck.23:02
ddsschow does one update drivers for a specific piece of hw in ubuntu?23:02
kyrre_zykotick9, thx, have a good time23:02
zykotick9kyrre_: sorry, just empashizing "to", my bad.23:02
wilee-nileeddssc, To vague name the hw23:02
OerHekskyrre_, according to the first answer @ http://askubuntu.com/questions/153915/how-to-install-drivers-for-nvidia-geforce-fx-5200-on-precise your quadro fx 1500 needs the 173 driver, not 96 ?23:02
zykotick9OerHeks: FTW ;)  kyrre_23:03
kyrre_OerHeks, yes i think this is the one installed but the server settings say  version 304.8823:04
kyrre_zykotick9  FTW ;) paece23:04
MDandreaHello everybody, i'm still having a problem with my graphics in ubuntu 12.04 when I open some applications  the screen gets kinda scrambled, anyone have a idea on how to fix that, my video card is a nVidia 6100 nforce 40523:07
zykotick9kyrre_: see MDandrea above ;)  best of luck to both of you.23:09
kyrre_MDandrea, welcome to my club !!!23:10
MDandreakyrre_, on Nvidia too?23:11
MDandreakyrre_, when I installed the Nvidia driver from the site, it worked for a while, but from nowhere it's stopped working, and i wasn't even able to log in unity3d, but if you thing it's worth a shot you could try the driver from the website23:17
OerHekskyrre_, MDandrea the correct driver answer is in this post > http://askubuntu.com/questions/164054/correct-way-to-install-nvidia-173-driver-on-ubuntu-12-04 2nd answer  "sudo apt-get install nvidia-173-updates"23:18
OerHeksdo not use the driver from the site, you won't get updates and your system may brak on a kernel update23:18
MDandrea0erHeks, Thank you, I'll see if it works23:21
MDandrea0erHeks, i think that's not the bug i'm having, cause i can install the drivers, it just don't run as desirable23:23
kyrre_help, i cannot move my windows anymore after playing around in compiz!23:23
Ari-Yangkyrre_, restore compiz default?23:24
OerHeksMDandrea, xorg is improving, leaving older cards with less functions behind. this 173-update driver is the latest improvements to make it run on xorg 1.13, this is all i know.23:24
kyrre_Ari-Yang, didnt work, dint save setting before, now i unistalled but still no window movement...23:25

clicker4721What? No. Off-topic is not for support.23:30
OerHeksnashant, we would not advise that, enable backports to see if your package is available.23:31
OerHeks!uefi | cllicker see this manual23:31
ubottucllicker see this manual: 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/UEFI23:31

ozzloywtf.  if i add XDG_CONFIG_HOME="${HOME}/.config" to /etc/environment the string leaves "${HOME}" literally23:35
ozzloywhat's the recommended way to set XDG_CONFIG_HOME system-wide?23:36
OerHeksnashant, then i think backports do not solve your issue, maybe you want to upgrade to 12.10 or 13.04 when it comes out @ 25th april23:36

jribOerHeks: ~/.config is the value used if you don't set XDG_CONFIG_HOME, so there's not much reason to set it to ~/.config as far as I can tell23:39
ozzloyjrib, that's the recommended value, and if it's set, then byobu uses it for its config files and i want to minimize the number of .files in "${HOME}" for ... elegance23:40
ozzloyaesthetic reasons, i guess23:41
